at 5:50 P.M., those present being President Patterson, Professors
White, Patterson, Pryor, Anderson, Mathews, Miller, Pence,
Wilson, Zembrod, Tuttle, Rowe, Frankel, Corbusier, Maxson, Hooper,

The minutes of the meeting of January 14th were read and,

plained that he had called this meeting in part at the request
of Vr.8toll in order that the faculty might consider the question
of certain honorary degrees and present them to the Board of
Trustees at their meeting to be held a few days later in anticipam
tion of conferring these degrees at the commencement in June/1910.

The regular committees of the faculty were then called for in

Professor Miller for the Committee upon Entrance Rc1uirements
and Accredited Schools reported that the Committee of Kentucky
Colleges had in their meetings decided upon a provisional list
of accredited schools and that the joint committee was now pres
paring circular letters to the preparatory schools of the State
explaining the basis of accrediting them. Professor Miller further
stated that it was the plan of the joint committee to make
several classes of accredited schools and that to obtain a position
in the first class the preparatory school must have at least these
teachers doing high school work exclusively. To secure eligibility
to class B the high school nmst offer a three years' course and
have not less than two teachers giving their entire time to the

Committee 2 upon Courses of Study reported through Chairman
Pence that they had discussed the matter of military drill for
students of the law school and the committee had decided that the
present situation of the case should continue for a year-longer,
namelylthnt such students should for this period be exempt fnom
military drill. Professor Pence also reported that certain
questions relating to the Summer School work had been discussed,
such as eligibility of students to the Summer School work and
the amount of credits that should be allowed for such work.

These questions had after some discussion been referred to a sub~
committee consisting of Professdrs Jones, Wilson, and Davis.

Upon motion of Professor Anderson, seconded by Professor
Rowe, it was ordered that hereafter chairmen of committees submit
their reports to the general faculty in writing.

Professor White for the Committee upon Calendars and Bulletins
reported that work upon the catalog was in progress, that the
schedules had been placed in Professor Miller's hands for elabora»
tion. He reported also that it was proposed in the Publication
of the forthncoming catalog to return to the origins, size of
six by nine inches, as the smaller size had been found in some
respects unsatisfactory.

Some discussion arose concerning the question of retaining
or omitting the list of alumnifiin the catalog, but without
any final action following.

Professor Anderson for the Committee upon Diplomas and
DQSTQGS reported that not having anticipated th.§“meeting of
the faculty his committee was not ready to submit theifiiroport.

President Patterson then presented to the faculty the
names of the following persons concerning whom it was Mr.Stoll's

ferring of honorary degrees in June nextze

J.Levering Jones cl Philadelphia, LL.D.

Alex P.Humphreys of Louisville, LL.D.

In an informal discussion which followed some objection
was raised'not to the specific candidates named,but to the
procedure which seems to increasingly prevail 0f having
recommendations for such degrees come from members of the Board
of Trustees rather than originate with the faculty, in whom the
charter explicitly vests the right of naming candidates for
such degrees.

Professor Anderson then moved that Meesre.Jones and
Humphreye be recommended to the Board of Trustees for the
honorary degree of LL.D. to be conferred in June next. A
motion was then made and seconded that in accordance with the
regular procedure these hares should be referred to the
Committee upon Difilomae and Degrees for consideration and
recommendation to the faculty. The motion carried. After
some further consideration of this matter, it was ordered upon
motion of Professor White, seconded by Professor Zembrod, that
the action taken as above recorded be re—eoneidered.

President Patterson presented to the facwlty upon his own
initiative the names of Mr.W.W.Finley of Washington,D.C. ind
Mr.henry Clews of New York City for the honorary degree uf

Professor Miller, chairman of the Athletics Committee, in»
quired if the committee appointed by the Board of Trustees, conm
sistinn f Profeseor White and Hr.Stoll, had yet reached a
decision as to the relation of the AthletiCe Committee to the
work of the young women's basket ball team.Professor White
for this committee reported that while he had had some conference
with Mr.$toll the matter was not settled, and it was therefore
assumed that the situation would remain as before,until the
present situation was revised by the action of the committee.
