At its last meeting the Senate gave the committee the tower to my
give final approval to the request for Education 270a,b. Problems

in Distributige Educatigg (three credits each). The committee has ' l


been confronted with an annarent difference of oninion in the various


divisions of the University concernina the tyres of courses to be
offered on the 200 level. At nresent, there are no University regu~ i
laticns or ooinions to guide the committee. Dean Funkhouser has 't
agreed to bring the uroblem before the Graduate Faculty. With this “
in mind, the committee has voted to aoorove the requested course for
“a the 1941 summer session, with the credit number reduced to 115mb.
,0 This will allow reconsideration of the course next year by which it
time it is honed that the Graduate Faculty will be able to supply t
some definition of a "graduate course". The course descrintion as i»
aooroved is as follows: ' 5'


‘ sleeping} lliadg. 319133335 i2 Distributive Education. (3 credits

g each) Summer Session 1941. The course deals with oroblems involved "'§

1 in teaching vocational distributive education in day, oart~time and w
evening schools. The problems will be selected in accordance with the
needs and desires of students registered in this course. Prereouisite:
Education 112 and Education 128.

The Committee recommends the aunrOVal of the request f the College of
Arts and Sciences for change in number of History 226 to History 150a. The
course as recommended is as follows:



A History 1805.. History _o_i: the gig South. (3 credits). A study
’ . of the colonial beginnings and expansion of southern life, economics, ‘, 'H
and society. The growth of slavery, stable agriculture, and sectional fl
oolitics will constitute the major interest. The course will consider 1
the various points of sectional develoument which led to the break~un i
of the Union. The South will be interoreted in both its relationshio

and contrast to national develooment. " fl
Prerequisite: One year of AmeriCHn History. R

The committee also recommends the aouroval of the change of number of
History 180 to 180b. The course as recowmended is as follows:

History loob. History of the New South. (3 credits). The evolu-
tion of southern life and society, agrarian nolitics, relationshins


with other sections, industrial growth, and new leadershiu. g;

Minutes 0; the University Senate ~ February l0, 1941

However, the Southeaster Conference reouires tnwt the control of all

Athletic Rowrds, Committees or Councils must be in the hands of the faculty

so that the majority vote f our own Council is with the faculty members.

the Conference re og-izes only the hresident of an institution as


the of;i

who has a financial interest in athletics to vote on Conference matters.

cial renresentative of that institution and does not permit anyone


Consequently while coaches nnd athletic directors take a very active nart


in discrssions and considerations of nroblems, their activities can be only

in an 8.11171 S“

My canacity, and they have no vote.
ihe Athletic Council has two functions, (1) in matters concerning in-
tercollegiate shorts on our own campus ~ the Council has nothing to do
with intermursl or other nel-intercollegiate snorts - and (2) as one of the
twelve units of t Conference.
In the first of these functions, the Council has to deal largely with
nroblems of finance, schedules and eligibility. College athletics and Dar~
ticularly football can now be considered in the class of ”big business”.
Our gross receints, not counting student fees, are in the neighborhood of
$100,000 a year. In this resnect we are about in the middle bracket of
the Conference. Some of the institutions in the unner bracket, such as
L-S.U., Tulane, Tennessee and Georgia Tech ofter take in twice as much,
esnecielly in years in which they have ”Bowl” games.

The matter of arranging satisfactory schedules is becoming increas~
ingly difficult. We try to arrange our football schedules five years in
advance and the nroblem of making Sucn schedules to include satisfactory
teams on the ”home and home” basis; the fact that students are allowed
only a Certain number of days off the camnus for trins; 'he necessity of
having good drawing cards on our own field; the imnortance of staggering
hard games and ”breathers”; the question of guarantees; and the all~imnor~

tant matter of ”money gates"; are the cause of many headaches.

Probably no groun of students on the camnus who renresent the Univer-
sity are as carefully checked on scholarship and residence as are the
athletes. Every student who narticinates in intercollegiate athletics
must be certified to the Commissioner of the Conference as to his scholar-
ship, his residence, his academic and athletic standing and his years of
Darticination and these certificates must be signed both by the Faculty
Chairman and by the Registrar of tne University. We have about 150 stu*
dents each year who must be thus checked and certified.

In the second of the functions of the Council — that having to do
with the Conference ~ the work is even more imoortant, due to the fact
that the organization is now undergoing drastic changes in its set*un
and in its rules and regulations which makes it very imnortant that the
University have a voice in these matters since we have to live by the
rules as established.

The two most imnortant nroblems confronting the Conference at the
present time are (l) the matter of subsidizing athletes and (2) the estab-
lishment of an office of Commissioner.

Unouestionably the most serious onesticn in connection with college
athletics all over the country is that concerning subsidation of football

Due to the very limited field, class extension, that is, nersonnl in- . W
ruction in class by a nrofessor, is not as extensive as correspondence ,
struction. During the last academic year there were 217 students re7is~ ‘1
red in extension classes. Under existing conditions this these of Unim
rsity Extension cannot become extensive, but with the remOVsl of certain
imitations on extension and with additionsl nersonnel, there could be s
most substantial develonment. Including both corresoondenc e s 7Ludy and ex~ M
tension clq sses, the Deusrtment has had enrolled more than 12,000 students
during its 22 years of existence. These have come from every county of the

state, from a m.ajority of the states of the Union and occasionally a stu*
dent from s for reign country. Although the number enrolled in corresoond~ QEF
ence courses and extension classes at the University is for below the num~ -.f'fl
‘I‘ bers doing this type of work 2t such institutions as the University of W,
'31 Chicago, University of California, and University of Minnesota, it annesrs
that our enrollment ma.y comnere favora.bly with other institutions having dl
comunrable resident enrollments 2nd comn2 Mrable limitations. A great many ' ,
students have their first contact with the University through its Extension '
Denertment, later enrolling as resident students. Other students enroll
for corresoondence courses on the recommendat ion OI their dean 2nd trans~

j fer the credit earned to their own institution. 1H

The Bureau of School Relations onerstes mainly through the Kentucky vl
High School Speech Lea.gue, music festivals, and achievement tests in high
school subjects. Through these activities the Denartment has maintained
rather close contacts for several years with mos st of the high schools.
The Dena.rtment nrovides an organization in which the high schools function
and which anoears to be mutually helpful to the schools and the University.

of the oct1v1ties of this Se ndce was sent to ea

mittee meetings have been held during which this Service has been discussed.

As at esult of our stndv, we desire to revert that we believe the
work of th: Women's Club Se rvice has been effective. We recommend that this
Service be continued and that consideration be given to the exoansion of
the orogram to include other imnortent nhases of adult education. It apnearfi
logical that, since this present nroqram has been so well established and
in some resnects routini7 ed, new activities could be included in closely re'
luted fields of eiilt interests. We 5 the Committee are aware of the oublic
relations asoects of tb is service and feel that the nrogram is also signifiv
Cent from this noint of view.‘

Campus. Two meetings were held to consider this matter. ifter discussing

the various ssnects of the motion niCture film and orojector service on
the cumuus, w motion was made, seconded, and nassed unanimously as follows:

1. That the nrojector and film service of the Extension Deosrtment
should continue to be made available to all densrtments on the
cwmous which find it useful to them in teaching and in other sunro-
nriete ways.

4. That the service should be given without charge by the EttenSion
Denertment. It is believed that this method would be more econom-
ical to the University by eliminating considerable bookkeening
and in other ways, would lessen the nossibility of friction, and
would encourage the use of motion uictures and other visual aids
in instruction.

3. It is recognized that the nresent eouiument of the Extension De-
nnrtment is inadequate to Cere for the camous needs; therefore,
its service is necessarily very limited. The Committee is con~
vinced that motion nictures and other related materials can be
used to great advantage in college instruction, and that the Uni-
versity should make urovision for these materials in some way.

Minutes of all meetings of the Committee are kept by the secretary and
recommendations are sent to the President of the University.

It annears to the Committee that the Extension Denartment is in a nosi—
tion to be of even greater service to the University if given an opportunity.
It is quite likely that the activities in which it is now engaged have not
reached their maximum effectiveness. Furthermore there are several nhases
of adult education such as short courses, forums, and conferences in which
Extension Deuertments of other universities successful y Chgn c and which
it seems would be desirable for the University of Kentucky,

Increased effectiveness and desirable exnension would nrobebly re~
quire more money than can be allotted to it for the coming year, but it is
honed thmt the annropriation for the n xt biennium may nermit a reasonable
increase for University Extension which we believe can be well used and
contribute much to the welfare of the University as a whole.

The University Senate met in the Assembly Room of Lafferty Hall Monday,
March 10, 1941, President Cooner nresided.

The minutes of February 10 were “cad and anuroved.

On recommendation of the University Council, the Senate eporoved a neti~
tion for an organization to be known as the Students' Art Club. This


petition had been submitted in accordance With the Senate regulations
and carried the signatures of 69 eligible students.

In the absence of a formal report for the month, Chairmen R. H. Weaver
informed the Senate that the Curriculum Committee had given considera~
tion to the request for apurOVal of Hygiene 51a and 51b. He stated that
the Committee had voted not to annrove Hygiene 51a, but that on request
of the College and the Department, additional time had been granted for
submitting more information on this course. He added that action on this
course would be renorted at a later meeting of the Senate.

Chairman R. H. Weaver made the following report on the work of the Currie“
ulum Committee since its establishment:

“The Curriculum Committee was established at the March, 1938, meet*
ing of the University Senate~ The committee cousists of the chairman,
elected by the Senate, and nine other members, annointed by the Chairman,
subject to the apDTOVal of the President of the University. There are
five members from the College of Arts and Sciences, including one from
the social sciences, including nsycholcgy, one from the-physical sciences,
and one from literature, philosophy and the arts, and one from each of
the other colleges.

The function of the committee, to quote the resolution which estabe
lished it, is 'to examine existing courses and to make recommendations
to the Senate as to the need for and desirability of these courses; to
recommend to the Senate the action to be taken by that body to eliminate
