December 3,1910.

The faculty met at 3: BO P.M. at the usual pla those
present being President TM1eritus Patterson, Acting CPresident

Jones, Kelly, Lafferty, Tc? cenzie, Mathews, Maxson, Miller,
Mustaine, Patterson, Penc ce, Peter, Pryo1, Rove, Scovell,

The minutes of the lee meeting were read and approved.
The standing committees were then called for in order for
reports. Committees 1, 8, E and 4 had no report s to offer.

Professor lacxen7vc for the C7ommittee upon Class Standing
arfi Examinations reported that it had been decided to begin
the regular term examinations upon Friday, December 16th; the
three hour classes to be examined in the morning and the two
hour class s in the arfternoon as in previous yea"s; the after~
noon classes to be examined first upon Friday the sixteenth.
Upon Thursda.y the twentywsecond it had been arranged to give
all those examinations which on account of conflicts could not
be given upon the regular schedule for previous days.

Committees 6, 7, R and 9 had no reports to offer,
Professor Miller for the Committee upon Athletics simply
calling attention to the published reports in which it had
been shown that the results of the Thanksgiving game had not
been entirely satisfactory, yet the financial condition of
the Association was excellent.

A resolution was presented by C.W.Mathews as follows:

"Whereas it is learned that in many cases univer
sity students are influenced to absent themselves from
a reunion with their respective family circles on
Thanksgiving Day because of the football games regular—
ly held on that day, and

Where a it is eminently fitting ard desirable that
a lniversity faculty should heartily cooperate in pro~
moting the observance of this time honored, national
family festival;

And further in view of the fact that many univer~
sitie es of the country hav e successfully made such changes
in the eir football schedules as to bring the closing game
of the seas on upon another date than Thanksgiving Day;

There fore be it resolved that it is the sense of
this faculty that a similar change be made in the schedule
of this University, and the 00mmittee on Athletics is
hereby requested to arrange that the final football game
in 1911 shall fall upon the Saturday preceding or follow~
ing Thanksgiying Day."
