    This sarving can be accomplished without any sacrifice of

efficiency or work done in the Academy.   In fact the experience

fo the University of Illinois and the University of Chicago, proves

that there is an increase of efficiency, where the work is done

by competent men under the supervision of the heads of Departments.

Seniors in the College or School of Education may be assigned to

instruction in Sub-Freshman School(Usually one term in a single

subject) and they work directly under the supervision of the re-

gular teacher and have the benefit of his counsel and direction.

The result has proved that the teacher, spurred on by the know-

ledge that his work; is on trial and that he is to be given credit

for the success he reaches, puts forth his utmost effort to do

a high elass of work, and this added stimulus of the teacher

is imparted to the students, resulting in an increased efficiencyr

of work done in the school.

    As may be seen from the schedule of Studies, showing the

apportionment of classes to the Professors in charge, all the in.,

struction now given in the Academy can be given under the reorgan-


ization with the employment of only two men devoting all their

time to the Sub-Freshman School instruction or supervision.

The new plan puts the instruction under the direct supervision of

the head of the departments in the college having charge of that

line of work, and permits of additional subjects being offered

in Science not now offered in the school.

    As successor of Dr. Snow, Professor Noe, who will also be

the Assistant Principal of the Academy, should be designated

by the appropriate title of PROFESSOR OF EDUCATION, in CHARGE of

the SCHOOL OF EDUCATION? and his salary should be the same as

that received by Dr. Snow, viz.$2000.

    The plan of apportioning the work of the present Adad-

emy to the teaching force now in the college, has been carefully

considered and it is certain that with only two additional teachQ

ers the whole work can be handled without placing any undue burdens

upon the college professors.  If the plan here presented of reor-

ganizing theAcademy into a Model Preparatory School be authorized,

you should at the same time direct that the President of the Uni-

versity, in co-operation with the Principal and Assiatant Principal

of the Sub-Freshman School, be empowered to assign the various

Professors in the College to the charge of the classes in the

Academy, which, according to their present college schedule, it

is evident they can take without conflict".

    Upon motion made, seconded and carried the above was adopted.


    The Executive Committee recommends the above plan to the

Board of Trustees for its adoption and upon its approval by the

Board that it Whall1 become operative and the Executive Committee

shall be empowered to carry such plan into execution, and that

the office of princip al of the present Adddemy and that the offices

now held by the present teaching staff be abolished, and that qaid

principal and teaching staff be no longer employed by the University
