H. C. R. No. 33, Relative to certain
recommendation to the State Board
Whereas, Under the statutes relat-
in' to free text books, the State Board'

adopt a uniform system of text books
to be used in the public free schools
of Texas; and
Whereas, Up to the present time, al-
though music, particularly instru-
mental music, is being taught as a
regular subject in the public free
school of Texas, text books on the
reading of band and orchestra music
have not been provided as free text
books by the State Board of Educa-
Whereas, The schools, the State
Board of Education, the State Superin-
tendent, many Members of this Legis-
lature, and others have been implored
to hasten the day of making text books
on the reading of music available to
the students studying these subjects
in the public free schools of Texas;
Whereas, If this matter is not con-
sidered by the State Board of Educa-
tion until their annual adoption meet-
ing in October, 1937, an adoption at
that t;me would not make the use of
the books available for some time
thereafter; therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Represen-
tatives of the State of Texas, the Sen-
ate concurring, That the State Board
of Education is hereby requested to
give the matter of furnishing free text
books on the reading of music to the
students studying these subjects in the
public free schools of Texas their
earliest possible consideration, so that
the books can, if possible, be made
available for use beginning with the
fall term of school in 1937.
The resolution was read second time.
On motion of Mr. Tennyson, the
resolution was referred to the
Committee on Education.
