S. ∂≥ Bullock, who followed Taylor in the morning session, presented the 22 H I G H E R E D U C AT I O N I N T E X A S findings of his research and an analysis of the ‘‘availability’’ of public education.

Even after Hamilton led a dncc-ctsat-tcic delegation to meet with Governor James Allred and won his ‘‘whole-hearted support’’ for the measure, nothing occurred.
