GENERAL LAWS. 341
STATE NORMAL COLLEGES-CHANGING NAME OF.
S. B. No. 176.] CHAPTER 160.
An Act changing the name of the State Normal Colleges of this State;
and declaring an emergency.
Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas:
SECTION 1. Hereafter the name of the Shm Houston Normal
Institute shall be "The Sam Houston State Teachers College, at
Huntsville"; the North Texas State Normal College shall be "The
North Texas State Teachers College, at Denton"; the Southwest
Texas State Normal School shall be "The Southwest Texas State
Teachers College, at San Marcos"; the West Texas State Normal
College shall be "The West Texas State Teachers College, at
Canyon"; the South Texas State Normal College shall be "The
South Texas State Teachers College, at Kingsville"; the Stephen
F. Austin State Normal College shall be "The Stephen F. Austin
State Teachers College, at Nacogdoches"; the East Texas Normal
College shall be "The East Texas State Teachers College, at Commerce";
the Sul Ross Normal College shall be "The Sul Ross State
Teachers College, at Alpine." All laws heretofore or hereafter
enacted applicable to these schools under their old names shall be
likewise applicable to such schools under their new names.
SEC. 2. The importance of this Act and the fact that the present
names of the teachers colleges of this State are misleading
and the fact that this law should become effective as soon as possible,
create an emergency and an imperative public necessity that
the constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several
days in each House be suspended, and that this Act take effect
and be in force from and after its passage, and said rule is suspended,
and it is so enacted.
[NoTE.-The enrolled bill shows that the foregoing Act passed
the Senate, with amendments, no vote given; and passed the House
of Representatives, no vote given.]
Approved April 2, 1923.
Effective 90 days after adjournment.
