FORMAL OPENING OF TYLER JUNIOR COLLEGE

NINETY-THREE students, with Faculty and numbers of the citizens of
Tyler, met in the High School Auditorium on the morning of September
17, 1926, for the formal opening of the Tyler Junior College. Following
the musical numbers given by Tyler artists, President Clough introduced
the members of the Faculty. Several of the leaders who were instrumental
in establishing the Tyler Junior College, Mr. Thell Williams, Mr. J.C.
Hale, Mr. Gus Taylor, and Mr. A.F. Sledge, made short talks.
     Mr. Clough introduced Dr. M. Faber, the principal speaker, as a former
Regent of the University of Texas. Dr. Faber gave the history of the
school system of Tyler from the opening year, 1881, to the establishment
of the Tyler Junior College -- the highest attainment for the Tyler
Schools.


FACULTY PARTY

ON OCTOBER 29, 1926, the first social function of the Tyler Junior
College was held in the gymnasium, when the Faculty entertained the
students. The college colors of black and gold, emphasizing the
decorative scheme, were much in keeping with the Hallowe'en spirit,
which greatly added to the gayety of the evening. After various games
and contests, entered into enthusiastically by both students and
Faculty with a feeling of loyalty and good fellowship, had enlivened
the program, the group gathered around the piano to learn the college
yells and songs. At the close of the evening, refreshments were served.
The party dispersed to the tune of "Good Night, Ladies," each
manifesting his appreciation for one of the most enjoyable events
of the year.


JUNIOR COLLEGE BANQUET

ON DECEMBER 3, 1926, the student body of the Tyler Junior College
entertained for the Faculty with a banquet in the ballroom of the
Blackstone Hotel. The tables, arranged in the form of a "T," were
banked with southern smilax, from the midst of which twinkled yellow
candles in crystal holders. College pennants and black and gold
streamers further carried out the college colors.
     The delicious menu consisted of fruit cocktail, turkey, dressing,
peas in potato cups, hot rolls, combination salad, olives, crackers,
osgood pie, and coffee. The courses were interspersed with beautiful
musical selections rendered by Lena Solomon, Agnes Tarbutton, and
John Hamilton. Then Toastmaster Warren McDonald called on President
Clough. After-dinner speeches by members of the Faculty followed, the
climax of which was reached when Mr. Nelson declared he would "make
it short," as "the longer the spoke, the larger the tire."
     This banquet made history for Tyler Junior College. It was
resolved to make such an affair an annual function.
