President J. P. Sewell,
My Dear Sir:
I am glad to state that the committee representing the Association
of Texas Colleges having in charge the question of the classification
of colleges has received your application for a promotion from
class A to class A plus in the Junior College division. This committee
has carefully considered the facts set forth in your application and
after due deliberation has decided that they fully comply with the requirements
for an A plus Junior College as laid down by the Association.
As Secretary of the Committee, I am, therefore, pleased to notify
you that from this date of the action of the Committee, which is
November, 1917, and until further notice your college will be classed
as an A plus Junior College. This official statement is sent to you
to use in any capacity whatever you see fit and is concerned in by
Dean Kesler and Registrar Mathews of Baylor University and the University
of Texas, respectively.
Yours very truly,
JOHN H. KEEN, Dean.

institutions for work done with us.
