The Faculty of the University met in the President's Office
Thursday, July 15, 1943. President Donovan presided. Members present
were Thomas P. Cooper, Alvin E. Evans, W. D. Funkhouser, Edward Wiest,
and Leo M. Chamberlain.

The minutes of June 2 were read and approved, with one change
necessary to harmonize them with the facts concerning the record of
Mary Frances Hatfield.

On recommendation of Dean Wiest, the petition of James Sparrow
was approved. Mr. Sparrow was asking that he be allowed half credit
for Commerce 109a, Business Law, and Commerce 117, Corporation Finance.
Mr. Sparrow left the University to enter military service on July 1,
which was two days short of the required three weeks' period. Mr.
Sparrow also asked permission to complete the third course which he
was currently carrying, Commerce 102, Labor Problems, by correspondence,
since his status in the army will permit him to-carry on this work.

The Faculty approved this part of Mr. Sparrow's petition, with the
understanding that Dean Wiest and Dean Chamberlain would arrive at the
proper method of recording the credit for this course.

On recommendation of Dean Wiest, the petition of John C. C1arke,dr.
was approved. Mr. Clarke had completed the requirements for the degree
of LL.B. after having done somewhat less than three years of work in
the College of Commerce. He now asks permission to complete the 18
quarter hours necessary to satisfy the requirements for the degree of
3.3. in Commerce under the combined CommercevLaw program. Ordinarily
it is assumed that the student will complete the requirements for this
latter degree before taking a degree in the College of Law.

Also on recommendation of Dean Wiest, the patition of Charles
S. Jones, Jr. was approved. Mr. Jones asked that he be permitted to
take an additional 8 quarter hours of work by aarrespondence, in order
to complete the.requirements for a degree. In granting this permission.
the Faculty allowed him to complete a total of 17 hours of correspon—
dence during his senior year, whereas the rule provides that not more
than 9 hours shall be done during this period. It was noted that this
action was taken in consideration of the military status of the student
and does not in any way constitute a precedent.

On recommendation of the College of Law, the Faculty approved the
following course changes in Law:

Law 124. Evidence. 6 quarter hours a changed to Law 124 ash.
Evidence, % quarter hours each.

.Law 172, Problems.of Research, 3 quarter hours - changed to
Law 172aub, Problems of Research, 3 quarter hours each.

Dean Evans pointed out that because of reductions in the teaching
staff of the College of Law, it may be necessary from time to time to

change the manner in which a particu-ar course is offered. He stated

that the Faculty of the College of Law was requesting that the Faculty

of the University grant permission to operate the courses as it seemed
necessary without securing permission in each case. As it did not seem
advisable to grant this authority, President Donovan recommended that

Dean EVans and Dean Chamberlain endeavor to find a practical solution :
to the problem presented.

On recommendation of Dean Taylor, the Faculty approved the peti~
tion of John D. Minton. Mr. Minton was asking that he be allowed
half credit in the courses in which he was passing during the current
summer term, although leaving school for military service two days ;
before the required period of three weeks.

The Faculty heard the petition of Arthur F. Vogelman to be allowed ' “
full credit for the courses being carried during the current summer ‘4 V
term. although leaving school on June 30. As it seemed probable that
this request was intended to cover half credit only, it was referred l
back to Dean Taylor. ;


The Faculty heard the petition of John R. Eibner, who was asking
that the E grades on his record for the first term of 194l~42 be
removed. As no faculty action is necessary to bring about the change
of a mark where such change is warranted, no action was taken.

On recommendation of Dean Boyd and Mr. Clifton, the petition of
T. Fred Erwin was approved. Mr. Erwin was asking that he be allowed
credit for 24 hours of work including 4 hours taken by correspondence
completed before the opening of the summer term except two lessons.

On recommendation of the College of Arts and Sciences, the follow~
ing new courses and course changes in sociology were approved: lgfih

President Donovan discussed with the Faculty the question of the living

conditions of men student, and pointed out the unsatisfactory conditions
that have prevailed in fraternity houses, rooming houses, and dormitories.
He indicated that there had been no plan in the housing of students which
' would permit the segregation of freshmen, and their proper supervision.
He asked the Faculty's advice with respect to the policy of having all
freshmen men live in the University dormitories under supervision. He
suggested that such a program might be initiated at the opening of the
first school year after the close of the war. It was the finught of

President Donovan, if such a policy should be adopted, that it should
be carefully publicized in advance. The Faculty approved the general
proposal and recommended that steps be taken to initiate it.

The Faculty heard a letter addressed to President Donovan by
E. L. McClurkan, a minister in Pineville, Kentucky. This letter was
written on behalf of Harry G. Mullens, a former student who was killed
in a plane crash on Saturday, June 26, While serving in the U.S. Army
Air Corps. Mr. McClurkan was inquiring as to whether it might not
be possible to grant this boy a degree posthumously. As investiga~
tion indicated that Mr. Mullens was approximately 60 quarter hours
short of graduation at the time he left the University, and that his
standing was below one, it was impossible for the Faculty to comply
with this request.

The Faculty of the University met in President Donovan's Office,
Wednesday, August 25. President Donovan presided. Members present were
W. D. Funkhouser, Assistant Deans L. J. Horlacher, D. V. Terrell, and
M. M. White, and Professor Frank H. Randall also attended the meeting.

The minutes of July 15 were read and approved, with one amendment
which deleted the instruction to the Secretary to prepare a resolution
to be sent to the parents of Mr. Harry G. Midlins. It had appeared,
after due consideration, that such a resolution might, if given publij
ity, embarrass the University, since no such resolution had been pre'9
pared regarding any other boys who have lost their lives in the war.

The Secretary presented to the Faculty the revised copy of the
rules of the University Faculty. It was explained that an endeavor was
being made to bring these rules up to date in order that the new Univerw
sity Faculty might have available at the time of its first meeting both
a revised and modernized statement of the Governing Regulations of the
University and an upeto~date copy of the Rules of the Faculty. Most
of the changes submitted for the consideration of the Faculty were addia
tions that had been made to the rules from time to time by that body»

A few changes were suggested, the more important ones relating to
student load and social life. The Rules of the University Faculty as
approved are made a part of these minutes by reference to the files
