May 12, 1941

The University Senate met in the Assembly Room of Lafferty Hall Monday.
May 12, l94l~ President Cooper presided.

The minutes of April 22 were read and approved.

Professor E. H. Weaver read to the Senate the follOwing report of the Cur~
riculum Committee:

"The College of Education has recowmended the approval of Education

Egg. Teaching Consumer Courses in the High School (2).

By mistake the circular to the Senate asked annroval of this
course for the 1941 summer session, According to a letter from Dean
Taylor to the committee the college had voted to request permanent
authorization. The Committee has considered this course, taking into
account. among other things, the recent recommendations of the Grad-— Q
uate Faculty concerning course numbers. In the committee's opinion
it will be necesSary to reconsider the numbering of courses already
in the University curriculum before these recommendations can be

 Minutes of the University Senate - May 12, 1941

applied fairly to new courses. The committee, therefore, recommends
the approval of this course with the further rec0mmendation that what—
ever body has the responsibility of the University Curriculum next
year be asked to reCOnsider the number of this c0urse along with those
of similar curses which are already a part of the University Curricu-
lum. The committee's recommendation should not be taken as approval
or disapproval of the position of this course on the "200 level”.

The course description is as follows:

Education 260. Teaching Consumer Courses i£_thg Eigh §£§ggl. This
course is designed to provide techniques and devices for teaching pu~
pils in high schools the various aspects of consumer education. The
emphasis is placed on procedure rather than on content.



Prerequisite; 12 credits in Economics and Business Administration,
including Commerce 11 or equivalent.

The addition of prerequisites is made with Professor Lawrence's approval.

The committee makes the following recommendations with respect to the
requests from the College of Arts and Sciences.

1. Approve Mathematics and Astronomy ljgf The Calculus 2i Finite
Differences. A study of the methods of differencing, finite integration,
interpolation, summation of series and difference equations. Topics
will include GregoryeNewton formula of interpolation, divided differences,
central differences, EulersMaclaurin formula, Gregory's formula of numeri~
cal integration, Lubbock and Woolhouse formulae. 3 credits.


PrerequisitezMath. 20b.

2. Approve for the 1941 Summer Session only s Physical Education
205. Current Studies in the Administration 2£_Recreation. For recreac
tion directors, supervisors, leaders and community center workers. A
study of present policies and procedures in adminiStration of national
state, county, municipal and rural recreational projects, 2 credits.



Prerequisite: Physical Education 125, or experience as an employed recrea~

tion worker.

Claims have been made to the committee that this proposed course contains
considerable duplication of existing courses in Administration. The commit—
tee's attention has also been called to the existence of a rapidly increasing
list of courses in Administration, in several departments, and to the danger
of a significant duplication of effort. In spite of the possibilities of du~
plication, the committee recommends the apprOVal of this course for the 1941
summer session, since it is listed in the Bulletin which has already been pub~
lished. The committee believes that the University has some responsibility to
students who may be attracted by listings of courses to be offered. Incident~
ally, the committee has been assured that in the future a new method of check»
ing the summer session bulletin will be used so that unapproved courses cannot
be listed. The committee further reCOmmends that whatever body has the respon-
sibility of the University curriculum next year be asked to call together all
departments that are offering courses in Administration for the purpose of

regular chairman having disqualified himsel.f, the committee voted to recom
mend the isruurov .l of 51a at the March meeting of the Senate. At the re—
quest of the Hygiene Department, this recommendation was Withheld to allow
the nresentation of further data to the committee. The Hygiene Department
now has transmitted to the Committee a request to be allowed to withdraw the
request for authorization 0: both courses. Anna rently this constitutes final
disno,al of the request frcm the Col leg qe of Arts and Sciences and the commit
tee is so reporting it to the Senate.



The Committee recommends the nDnroval of the request of the College of
Agriculture to be ellOwed to extend Fa qrm Economics 124 Farm L anagement for

a chnn.1nu Agr ricult_ure (1.) to Farm Ec0n0m1c5124a,b,c. (1,1,1). Authorize"

Tne renort of the Curriculum Committee was anoroved as read.


 Minutes of the University Senate - May 12, 1941

The following standing COmmittees of the Senate presented renorts of their
work in accordance with the request of the Senate made earlier in the school
year: Scholarship and Attendance; Auditing Committee for Student Enternrises;
Haggin Fund Publications. The reports were received and ordered included in
the minutes, as follows:


"Report of tie Jommlttee on Scholarship and Attendance

May 12, 1941



The Committee on Scholarship and Attendance was authorized in the fol~
lowing action of the Senate on May 29, 1922:
"A Senate committee, composed of one member from each college, with the
deans of men and of women as ex~cfiicio members, shall be constituted
to consider Cases of students delinquent in studies or attendance referred
to it by the Deans of Colleges, and to consider the appeals for reinstate~
ment of students dropped for unsatisfactory work."

Later, in 1924, the Council, in order to have time to consider more gen~
eral questions of University policy asked the committee to handle also oeti~
tions for extra work and remission of penalties for absences before and after

Most of the committee's time has been devoted to netitions for reinstate"
ment of students who have been dropted and for removal of nenalties for absen~
see before or after holidays. Occasionally the Registrar has asked the advice
of the committee in individual cases, involving matters such as misstatements
by students in their entrance applications, requests for extension work in the
senior year, requests for changes in the records.

Three changes in our nrocedure have grown out of our experience. We have
found that readmitting dropped students on trial for periods less than a semes-
ter is not satisfactory and that such students should be required to apply for
admission to the summer terms as well as to the semesters, and that some stu~
dents who have been dropned from one college can often make good in another.

There are various points of View reoresented in the committee membership.
Some are inclined to be hard~boiled and to mete out the full measure of the
law while others tend to place more reliance on the nossibility of adjustment
of schedules and living conditions and renewed purposes so as to bring success
for the student. In this respect the cemmittee is a fair cross section of the
Senate itself. It can be said that all members are sincerely trying to do
what is best for the student and the University in a field that is highly im—
portant in human Values and that at the same time demands good judgment. It
is not a committee that any one would choose unless it were a part of his adv
ministrative job or he felt himself peculiarly well qualified to deal with
such problems.

In order to present to the Senate a partial picture of the committee's
work, I have tabulated the record of the drops and reinstatements for the
last three years. In this time 489 students were drowned and, of these, 170
were reinstated on probation. This is 34% of the number dropped. Dr. Croft
has contributed the following information concerning reinstated students who
were under his care. Of 103 students reinstated, 57 or 61% of the 94 who
finished their semester of probation oas5ed in 12 credits or more for the

tion shows that of 139 students drOpoed and reinstated 33 or lj.9% were

in the 5th. A further investigation of mine into the records in mathematics
ocurses of freshmen who fell in the lowest ouintile in the general ability
test shows that of 46 such students taking mathematics during the iirst
semester of this year, 27 or 55.7% passed. By way of comparison. in the
‘ ~ . ,‘ ’1 r r’ 71

some semester there were 511 students in these courses and 3)? or 70,79
of them massed. In anoreximate terms, for the whole grout about 4 out of
5 massed, while for the lowrability group about 3 out of 5 massed.

These figures indicate, first, ttat it would be a very inaccurate
procedure to exclude from the University, even if we could, all 9th and
10th decile students, or even all 10th decile ones, as rated by our nresent
general ability test; and second, that the Dolicy of the Committee on
Scholarshii and Attendance of considering the dronnei student indizidnélly,
and with as much care and wisdom as we can apnly, has been justified.

The followinc recommendation from the College of Arts and Sciences was

”The College of Engineering has requested the Denartment of
Physics to expand the instruction in Physics for sophomore Engi-
neers to a twelveehOur course. Because of this change we must
change the sophomore requirements in the course in Industrial Chem-
istry to Physics 3a and Physics 3b. This will increase the require-
ments one hour each semester, to a total of 156.3."
