ters and that these students be asked to appear for the graduation

The Rules Committee reported the activities of a special subecommittee
appointed to discuss with representatives of the Student Government Associar
tion the proposed amendments to the Student Government Association Constitution.
Dean Hill, Chairman of the subcommittee reviewed for the Faculty the conference
with the students and offered the following recommendation:

The Committee recommends that the revised Constitution of the
Student Government Association be approved by the University Faculty,
with the proviso that the Constitution of the Student Government
Association is to be carefully studied and revised during the early
weeks of the fall quarter, and that all conflicts with present rules
and regulations and byelaws of the Board of Trustees. or any other
governing body, are to be eliminatedo

In the case of a conflict between the rules of the Board of

Trustees and the Constitution and By—laws of the Student Government
Association, the rules of the Board of Trustees necessarily apply.



























Minutes of the University FaCulty - April 10. 1942

After some discussion this recommendation was approved, with the understand-
ing that this action of the Faculty does not in any way constitute approval
of any part of the Constitution of the Student Government Association that
may now or at any time be found to be in conflict with the rules of the Board
of Trustees.

On recommendation of the College of Agriculture, classes in Animal
Industry 125 and Animal Industry 137, involving 33 students, were given per-
mission to be absent from classes on May 7, 8. and 9 for the annual visit
of these classes to dairy herds in the vicinity of Louisville and Cincinnati.

The Faculty approved the petition of J. V. Adams. Jr. to be allowed
to complete his requirements for graduation in the Department of Electrical
Engineering, without credit in Military Science 6a. This petition had been
approved by Dean W. E. Freeman and Colonel Paul C. Paschal.

The Faculty considered a letter which had been addressed to President
Donovan by Mr. Allenby Winer. Mr. Winer is now in military service and he
was requesting that he be allowed three hours of credit in elementary French
without completing the second half of this course, and that in addition he
be allowed to graduate still short nine hours of the 127 credits required
for graduation. The Faculty declined to approve this petition and instructed
the Secretary to write Mr. Winer.

Dean Hill called the attention of the Faculty to the necessity for
care in formulating the schedules of classes in order that class assignments
to the different days of the week may be fairly well balanced. It was pointed
out that concentration of four-hour classes in the first four days of the
week might permit a great many students to arrange schedules in such a way
that they could leave the campus on Thursday night and not return until Mon-
day morning. '

Dean Hill announced that summer quarter contracts would be sent in
the near future to those members of the faculty who are paid on a ten months'
basis. He indicated that no contracts would be sent to members of the staff
employed on a twelve months” basis, since there is no additional pay involved.

Announcement was made of the meeting of the Kentucky Education Associar
tion beginning on Wednesday, April 15, with provision for the usual University
headquarters and the reception on Thursday night, April 16. It was suggested
that President Donovan write all members of the staff, urging attendance at
the Louisville meeting.

Dr. Adams presented for the College of Education the curricula and
course changes necessary to put into effect in that college the operation
of the quarter system. These curricula and course changes were approved,
with the provision that minor Variations might be made by mutual agreement
of the Dean and the Registrar. These curricula and course changes are
incorporated in the minutes by reference to the files of the registrar's

request from the Department of Political Science was approved:

to give five quarter hours for each course numberleO or above
in the Department, with the discretion to limit the meetings of
such courses to four per week. The Department is to report to the

the program and requested that members of the University staff act as hosts
to delegates from other institutions. He suggested that wives of members of
the University staff be asked to serve as table hostesses at the luncheona

President Donovan discussed with the Faculty the advisability of schedur
ling for next year a relatively large number of late afternoon and evening
classes, these to be offered as residence courses, using the regular faculn
ties of the University. In this connection it was suggested that salaries
in as far as possible be budgeted in a single item without supplementary
amounts for extra or special services.

President Donovan read to the Faculty a letter from Dr. Bigge, Chair-
man of the Committee on Commencement, in which the recommendation was made
that attendance at the baccalaureate service in June and in subsequent years
be made compulsory for students unless excused by their respective deans.
This recommendation was approved by the Faculty and the Registrar was re-
ouested to notify each graduating senior of this actione

as resignations, new appointments and promotions, be reported in as far as
possible in time for action at the next meeting of the Beard of Trustees.

The next meeting of the University Faculty was scheduled for April 24,

with the understanding that consideration of the new rules be the first order
of business.
