6 GENERAL LAWS.
at its second called session, by amending so as to read hereafter
Sec. 2. There shall be given in all colleges and universities
supported by public funds a course in American Government
with special emphasis upon the Constitutions of the United
States and of Texas, which course shall be given for at least
three fifty-minute periods per week for not less than twelve
consecutive weeks, or its equivalentif given in summer sessions.
No student shall be graduated from any such college or university
who has not passed a satisfactory examination in such college
or university course in the college or university from which
he is graduating or in some other college or university which he
may have attended previously.
SEC. 2. That Section 5 of Chapter 83 of Senate Bill No. 179
of the General Laws passed by the 41st Legislature of Texas as
its second called session be amended so as to hereafter read as
SEC. 5. The teaching courses of instruction in the Constitutions
provided for in this Act shall begin with the terms of
school beginning on or after September 1, 1930, and the provisions
of this Act with reference to graduation from any school,
college, or university, or with reference to certification to
teach school, shall not apply to any student graduated before
September 1, 1930, or receiving a certificate to teach school before
that date. Provided, however, that the terms of this bill
shall not be applied to, or affect, any student who commenced
his studies leading to a degree, in any of the State Institutions
with the required credits prior to the time this Bill was enacted
into a law, to any student, who on or before September 1st, 1929,
had credits for at least half the work required for a bachelor's
SEC. 3. The fact that many students who entered these various
State supported schools prior to September 1, 1929, and
prior to the time this bill became a law, will be affected by same
and will probably be denied the privilege of graduation, if the
Bill is not amended so as to exempt them from its terms, creates
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 said rule is hereby suspended
and that this Act shall take effect and be in force from and after
its passage, and it is so enacted.
