February 13, 1933

The University Senate met in the Lecture Room of McVey Hall, Monday,
February 13, with President McVey presiding.

The minutes of January 25 were approved as read.
The Chairman of the Rules Committee presented the following recommendations

”The Bules Committee desires to have the rule governing the amount
of work a student may carry while doing practice teaching at the
University of Kentucky amended as follwws:

1« To exclude from this rule students doing practice
teaching in nhysical education and music.

2» To allow the dean to assign an additional one hour
to the seventeen now allowed for students in fields
other than physical education and music if in the
scheduling of a student he finds it impossible to work
out a desirable schedule within the seventeen hour

The Chairman made the following comments regarding the recommendation:

”The reason for asking to have physical education and music
excluded from this list is that in both these fields the Dractice
teaching is distributed over two semesters and the seventeen
hour limit is hardily fair to this group of students. This
practice teaching (in Physical EduCation add Music) has been
organized since the rule was passed.

In attempting to adhere rigidly to the seventeen hour limit
for practice teachers in fields other than music and physical
education very definite hardships have been worked on a

number of studeds» If the college could be authorized to
assign one hour of additional work where schedule problems

are unusually difficult, it frequently could be done advantagem
ously to the students and to the institutions”

The recommendation was anproveda

The President outlined the financial situation at the University and

the prospects for next year. He emphasized the necessity for rigid

economy in all departments.
