WHERC TEXAS FALLS SHORT.
At the clow of the first week of ma
triculation at the State Agricultural
and Mechanical college It Is announc
ed that close on to 800 students have
applied for admission, which, It I wild
represents a greater per ccntage of
Increase than In any previous year,
and Is the largest student body in the
history of the college.
The policy of President M liner and
the board of directora is to turn no
boy away from the school, but owing
to the fact that there is not sufficient
dormitory room to accommodate .the
Inrge number who have already
applied for admlosion, It has been
found necessary to order tenta In
which to quarter many of the boys
until such time as tbe State rhall see
fit to Increaitc the dormitory fac-nitles
of the sJi(H)l to meet thit growing de
mand for the character of education
this Institution haa undertaken to Im
part The popularity of the school Is
growing so rapidly that It 1 safe to
affirm that 10oo or. ?000 young men
would have sought adnilitxion had the
assurance gone abroad that accommo
dations ample to take care of th
number would be iti readiness for
their coming. Hut unfortunately un
der the nonprogressive policy which
the State has seen fit to ptirmo to
ward this Institution, such assurance
could not be given, though the presl
dent and directors, as before Indicated
are doing all In their power to make
temporary tirovlsion to offset the
State'a neplect to provide for the erec
tion of the buildings now so urgently
needed.
It is a shame for a Commonwealth
with the Immensity of resources which
Texas boasts, and whose tax rate Is
the lowest of any state In the I'nlon.
to te bo short-xighted In Its educa
tional K)lcy as to have no better way
of encouraging ambitious students
seeking technical education in respon
se to a growing public demand for
such information, to be used in ex
panding the State'a activities, than
to quarter them In tents, subjecting
them to the dangers of winter expos
ure and to the numerous Inconveni
ences which are Intolerable from tent
life, even In a climate as mild aa that
which prevails where the college Is
located.
The iKKiie is making suitable provi
sion for the need of this Miptiar In
stltutlon, capnble in Its intent and
purNis. of carrying on a grent work
of needed education Is one that must
be faced, and It Ix-hooves the people
of Texas to lose no time in fostering
a public sentiment so united and over
whelming In its purpose that It will
stand for nothing short of the state
doing I's full duty In the premises.
