2. "(o) Plans for DormitoKX. The University's architect, Mr. Charles A. Coolidge of Boston has sent the plans for the men's dormitory which it is proposed soon to erect from funds received from the last session of the General Assembly. Mr. Coolidge ex- peots to have ready the specifications in the near future. As soon as they are ready I shall ask the chairman of the Executive Committee to call a meeting to consider them. I have been urging Mr. Coolidge to make all possible haste in their preparation. "(d) Department of EX&Jiene and Public Kealth. As previously reported to you, we have received a subsidy of r1l,l0O from the United States Interdepartmental Socirl vygiene Board for the con- duct of a Department of Hygiene and Public Health. This in ad- dition to the amount being spent for work in physical education this year makes a total expenditure of about $20,000. As head of the new department we have secured the services of Dr. P. K. Holmes of Ohio Wesleyan University. He has been head of the department of health and hygiene at that Institution., He has the degree of A. B. and in addition a medical degree from Bowden Medical School. As assistants-mwe have secured Dr. Ireland from Bowden Medical School and Dr. Eva Locke a practicing physician in New York City. Miss Tillie Greathouse, who was a nurse with the Barrow Unit in England during the war, has been added to the Department as nurse. The Department will be housed in Neville Hall. We have located there the University Dispentary. There is need of an isolation hospital or isolation rooms for students with contagious diseases. The city hospitals have no such provisions, but the University has a small infirmary for women. There is a small two story brick building behind Mechanical Hall, heretofore used as a storage room that could probably be arranged for an isolation ward for men. "(e) Engineering Eouipment. The Committee on Engineering Equipment has authorized the expenditure of about $40,000; the old wood shop has been turned into a study hall; hav,' iribeZerru'd tbw wood shop and machine shop eouipment to the new engineering building and made several minor changes. The Committee has done a good piece of work. "(f) Cafeteria. In the last discussion in the Executive Committee we considered the advisability of transferring the Uni- versity cafeteria to Science Hall. Subseouently, however, it ap- peared that it would be probably less expensive and more satis- factory to move the Department of Journalism to Science Hall and let the cafeteria expand in the basement of Administration Build- ing. Rooms were therefore fitted up in the basement of Science Hall for the Department of Journalism. These rooms will be very satisfactory and the Department will begin work there this semes- ter. In the meantime the crowded conditions under which the cafe- teria has operate~d will be relieved and adequate room, for the present, provided.
