Extended Holiday
Is Not Approved
Groups Drop Plans
Reorganize Petitions
The University faculty has approved a 1949 calendar allowing the

name one-da- y
Thanksgiving holiday,
and voted down a proposal for January commencement.
, No motion was made to grant an
extended Thanksgiving holiday this
year or next, according to Vice President Leo Chamberlain, who presided
at the Monday afternoon meeting.
Extension Is Impractical
An extension this year is impractical. Dr. Chamberlain said. No
formal resolutions jt student petitions for next year have been received by the faculty, he said.
The faculty feels it would be undesirable to break the academic year
ao close to Christmas vacation, according to the vice president.
When news of the faculty action
reached campus groups sponsoring
petitions, these petitions were called
in and reorganized with next year in
