fraternity to publish a literary magazine be granted with the following
provisions: (1) that the publication be under the direction of the
Publications Committee, or_another faculty committee designated by the
President, and (2) that no issue go to press without assured funds to
pay the cost of that issue.

The University Faculty approved the Rules Committee's recommendation.

On motion, duly seconded and passed, the University Faculty voted to
reconsider the University Calendar for 1946-47 approved at the meeting
November 12. After some discussion covering the opening date of the F811
Quarter and the Christmas vacation, the Faculty approved a motion that the
calendar be left to a committee of which Dean Chamberlain would be the

The Faculty then considered the following recommendation of the POst-
War Planning Committee, which had been deferred from the November meeting.
Whereas this Committee has before it numerous problems of a long range nature
which it feels are not proper to the problems of a Post—War Planning Committee,
we recommend that the University Faculty consider the possibility of a stand-
ing committee whose purpose it shall be to study such problems and to
suggest to the Faculty additiOnal policies in the light of such study. A
motion was made, seconded, and passed that the President appoint a committee
on educational policies.

In accordance with the rules of the UniverSity Faculty, the Dean of the
University had prepared a list of student organizations and their respective

advisers. This list was mimeographed and distributed at the meeting.

On recommedation of the College of Arts and Sciences, the following

‘course changes and new courses were approved by the University-Faculty:

DroE: Physics 151, Introduction to Atomic Physics - 5 Quarter hours
Physics 202, Measurements in Optics, 3 quarter hours.

Change (in description and credit):

Physics 110. §pectroscopy. Credit changed from 4 to 5 quarter
hours. This course considers the production, recording, and
interpretation of spectra, both atomic and molecular. Bohr~
Sommerfield theory, energy levels, normal and excited states,
absorption and Baman spectra. The laboratory will emphasize those
principles of spectroscopic apparatus: theory and use of prism
and grating spectrographs; light sources, photographic procedures;
Wave length and intensity determinations; spectrOphometer and
densitometer; qualitative and quantitative analysis. Prea
reguisites: Sophomore Physics and Integral Calculus.

Egg Courses: Physigg.ifli. Fundamental gtomic and Nuclear Physics. 5
Quarter hours. This course will stress the fundamental
principles of atomic and nuclear theory and practice thereby
providing a foundatiOn for students interested either in
applied nucleonics or in a breeder study of atomic and
nuclear physics. Topics: atomic nature of matter,
electricity and radiant energy; atomic and molecular
structure: artificial transmutation of nuclei, nuclear

hours. Methods of producing and detecting nuclear particles will be r
studied. Instruments to be employed in measurements are ionization

chambers, Greiger counters, cloud chambers, photographic films, mass
spectrographs, and Van de Graaff generator. Measurements will be made

on halfalives, absorption coefficients, ranges, particle energies.

The experiments include methods appropriate to alpha particles,

electrons and positrons, photons, neutronsa fission fragments and

mesons. Prerequisites: Physics 155 or concurrent.

Anthrgpglggv and Archaeologz 108. The Development oi Culture.
3 quarter hours. A study of the origin or human culture and of the his-
tory of human cultural behavior. The course will contain a study of
the origin and development of primitive behavior along cultural lines.
It will not be presented as a series of studies of static culture

but rather to show the flow of culture from basic human beginnings to .
present day civilization. m
