"At a meeting of the Committee on Class Standing and
Examinations held on @ctober 86th all members were present
except Professors Miller and Anderson; on November 3rd
all were present except Acting President White, Professors

p Miller and Anderson.

' "It is the recommendation of the Committee on Class
Standing and Examinations that the following regulations be
adopted by this faculty, and that these regulations become
operative upon adoption. Any exisiting regulations that
conflict with the following rules shall become void.

1. That the centigrade scale be used for recording
all grades.

8. That 75 shall be the lowest grade given for
satisfactory work.

3. That a condition shall be imposed when the final
grade is over 49 but less than 75.

4. That a failure shall be imposed when the final grade
is less than 50.


A deficiency signifies either that one or more
studies required for a given degree have not been
pursued in this University, or that credit has not
been obtained for work done elsewhere. /

’- e. A failure can be made good by taking the study
again in class. This must be done as soon as the
study is repeated in the University program.

7. Studies in which a student has failed take precedence
of all others in the arrangement of his course.

8. A condition must be removed by passing an examination
which will be held at the end of the term following
that in which the condition was incurred. Any condi—
tion not removed in this manner or according to
Regulation 9 becomes a failure, and the study must
be repeated in class.

9.3pecig; examinations will be held on the first Satm
urday of the first term (Fall Session) for the re—
moval of conditions obtained during the previous
second term (January to June Session).

(a) A conditioned student who desires a special
examination must notify the teacher or department
concerned on or before the first Thursday of the
first term, so that examination questions may be
prepared. He must also notify the Registrar on or

h before the same day, so that arrangements may be
made for the examination. Unless such notice is
received, neither department nor Registrar will
arrange for an examination.

(b) The regular examination for the removal of
conditions,as noted in Regulation 8, will be held
the third week before the end of the term following
that in which the condition was incurred. The


 Minutes of the Faculty, November 4,1910. 11.

Registrar and the department concerned must receive
notice on Monday of this week that an examination is
desired. No examination will be given unless such
notice is received. A conditioned student may take
the regular or special examination as noted above,
but cannot enter both examinations. If he is unable
to pass in the examination which he enters, the

, condition becomes a failure.

10. In the event that a student‘s work is defective, yet
not such as to make it necessary to dismiss him from
the University, he may be advised to withdraw or be
warned and placed on probation.

ll. No student with more than two conditions may be
permitted to register as a member of the next highest
class until the number of conditions does not exceed
two. This regulation shall apply only to classes
below the Senior year

Lieut.Kelly to hold monthly cadet hops in the gymnasium

. building, Lieut.Kelly's original idea being to hold tham
at night, but upon learning of the rule of the Board of
Trustees strictly limiting the number of night dances, he
proposed for the present to hold them on Saturday afternoons.
It was agreed by the committee that in accordance with their
previous ruling these afternoon cadet hops should not be con—
sidered as coming within the restrictions of the Board of
Trustees, and it was further mrdered that the request of Lieut.
Kelly be complied with, the understanding being that Lieut,
