The following resolution respecting Professor James Burt

of Professor James Burt Miner whose death occurred on
March 24, 1943. Near the end of his twentywsecond year at
the University his outstanding service was brought to a
sudden close.

Professor Miner was the first fullatime instructor in

Psychology at the Uhiversity of Illinois. From there he
went to the Carnegie Institute of Technology, where he
organized the Research Bureau for Retail Training. He
organized the First ysychOIOgical clinic west of Chicago
in 1908, at a time when such clinics existed in only two
or three uniVersities. At the University of Kentucky he
established the Personnel Bureau and was editor of the

: Kentucky Eersonnel Bulletin. He was collaborator of the

Long considered a leader in his field, Professor
Miner published numerous important papers and books. In
his first published paper he settled for all time the
critical question as to the innate or acquired basis of
visual space perception. His book on Defi.ciency and
Delinquency was the first authoritative volume in this '
field and was a standard test=book for many years. He

This brief outline of the life and work of our

in two correspondence courses shortly after the credit in these
courses was changed from 3 semester hours to 4 quarter hours each.
She had assumed that she had earned the equivalent of 6 semester
hours of credit, whereas. as a result of the change to the quarter
system, the courses carry only 8 quarter hours of credit. In approv=
ing the petition that 9 quarter hours of credit be allowed the
Faculty designated that the registration be changed to Com. 012 and
Psychology C7, each with a value of 4% quarter hours.

On recommendation of Dean Boyd. the Faculty approved the petition
of Paul J. Ross. Mr. Ross is a candidate for the combined artsamedicino
degree and asked that he be allowed to complete the professional rev
quirements for this degree with 37.7 weeks of residence and 42 hours
of credit.

On recommendation of Dean Boyd and approval of Professor Galloway,
Joseph A. Bohnak was allowed credit in the first quarter's work in
English 50. Elementary Russian. without taking the second quarter of
the course.

The Faculty heard the petition of Miss Patsy Horkan to be allowed
to complete her requirements for a degree at the university without
satisfying completely the senior residence requirements. Under the
rule, Miss Horkan should attend the University the remaining two
quarters of her program. She stated. however, that it would be
difficult for her to be in Lexington during the summer and asked per-
mission to attend school in Georgia instead. As there was consider«
able doubt about the advisability of approving this request, action
was deferred until more information could be obtained as to why Miss
Horkan could not attend the University during the summer.

On recommendation of Dean Holmes. the petition of Billy Whiteside
was approved. Miss Whiteside was asking that she be permitted to be
initiated into Kappa Delta Sorority on the basis of her standing for
the winter quarter only.

The following course changes were recommended by the College of
Arts and Sciences:

IV Mathematics and Astronomy


l2 Mathematics 2£,§293n92i 4 quarter hours. Reduced from
5 quarter hours at request of College of Commerce.

;3_ Plano and Solid Analytic Geometry. Title and content
changed from Plane Analytic Geometry, to include Solid Geometry.


With the exception of Art 30a. 30b, and 30c. the courses were
approved as presented. Action on the three art courses was
deferred at the request of Dean Horlacher.

The following course changes were recommended by the
College of Law and approved by the Faculty:

The change to the quarter system made it desirable to divide
the course in Credit Transactions (Law 174 o 3 semester hours) into
Mortgages (Law 1743 s 3 quarter hours) and Suretzship (Law l74b a
2 quarter hours), and this change was approved by the University
Faculty 5/8/42.


It now seems advisable to again offer this course as Credit
Transaction§_(Law 174 a 5 quarter hours) and the faculty of the
College of Law recommend that the course be approved in the
following form:

Law 174 a Credit Transactions we 5 Quarter hours. (This
course deals with real estate loans, suretyship. pledges, mortgages,
disposition of stocks and bonds, and problems of agricultural
finance. Hanna's Cases on Security.


This involves no change whatever in the content of the course.

Dean Evans presented the following request from the College
of Law, relating to credit for students entering military service.

"On August 22, 19429 the Law Faculty adapted the followe
ing rule of the Association of American Law Schools relative
to credit to be granted students who enter the armed forces:

”Any law student who enters the armed forces after.
having completed at least oneehalf of the classroom work of
the quarter and who has a scholastic point standing of 1.0 in
all his previous law work, if any, shall be entitled to
residence and hour credit for that quarter, provided: (1) he
furnishes satisfactory evidence that he has entered into the
service within a reasonable time after he withdrew from school,
and (2) his class grade for the quarter as determined by
attendance, recitations and tests. if any. is satisfactory.





Minutes of the Faculty of the University = April 9, 1943

This rule shall apply during a student's first quarter in ‘tg‘.
law school as well as in any later quarter.“ v

We therefore ask that this rule be adepted by the University
and be applied to all students leaving the law school for
military service subsequent to August 22, 1942.”



After some discussion of this problem, the Faculty deferred action
until another meeting.

0n recommendation of Dean Horiacher, the petition of Roy H. ,
Hunt was approved. Mr. Hunt asked permission to complete two ‘
lessons of a correspondence course during the current quarter,
although registered at present for 24 quarter hours of work. 1

Dean Wiest presented the petition of Robertson Kagin. Mr.
Kagin was given permission by the Faculty to take a special
examination in Commerce 124, a course which he had previously
failed. This was the only credit necessary to complete Mr.
Kagin's requirements for graduation.


Dean Horlacher presented to the Faculty the problem of Miss
Mary Cary. Miss Cary was forced to withdraw from the University
on February 20, as a result of serious illness. Through her
parents, she is asking that she be allowed half credit for the
courses which she had carried up to the time of her withdrawal. '
Half credit to this amount would complete her requirements for a '
degree. This request Was Carefully considered by the Faculty
in all its aspects and implications. Since Dean Horlacher in0
dicated that the College of AgriCulture was asking advice. no
specific action was taken, although it appeared that the Faculty
would not be disposed to approve a request of this kind.







President DonOVan discussed briefly the prospects for
assignment to the University of trainees under the Army Special=
ists Training program. He discussed the various factors that
may have caused the delay in this program.




President Donovan also Called the attention of the Faculty
to the necessity for beginning work on the University budget for
l943=44. He pointed out that while it is still difficult to
anticipate the income of the University for the next fiscal year. t
H_ action on the budget could not be further delayed. He mentioned ;
h;' some of the problems that should be given consideration and in:

" dicated that the date for the submission of the budget requests

would be announced in the near future. He expressed the hope L
that any reductions that would have to be made in the budget 1
would be made in materials and supplies and that they would not ;









affect salaries.

President Donovan discussed briefly the prospects for the , \
summer quarter. He also announced that a meeting of the instruc:
tional staff had been called for Saturday. April 10, at 11 a.m.
