No smiley face accompanied this statement, so I thought I would clarify. There are only three Catholic institutions of higher learning in Texas: the Univ. of Dallas, St. Edward's Univ. in Austin and the Univ. of St. Thomas in Houston. There is no Cath. Univ. of North Texas. It belongs to the same fictitious category as the Sam Houston Institute of Technology. Charlie
