was unaware of its existence. Some matters were dis-
cussed informally at the meeting but no definite action
was recommended as the cummitteo was unCertain as to its
duties. The Committee discussed the operation of the
Student Government plan and would like to bring in a
report in connection therewith, if this matter be with-

On motion of Professor Miller, duly seconded, it was
then ordered that the questions relating to the honor system
be referred to the Committee on Student Welfare, to report


back b0 the Faculty at the next regular meeting.

Professor Miller then inquired why there was never any
report from tho Y.u.C.A. to the Faculty. He thougnt that,
inasmuch as the faculty members contributed toward the fi-
nances of this organization, the association should make u re-
port :0 the Faculty. After a brief discussion, it was or-
dered, upon motion, that a Y.M.S.A. Comritteo be appointed,
and that it should consist of those members of the Faculty
who are unon the Board of Directors of the association.
The President thereupon appointed this committee with Dr. Ti-
gcrt as chairman, the committee including also, President
Barker, Professors Chalkley, Moloher, Mathews, Bryant, and

Lieutenant Underwood then presented the question as
to giving extra credit to those students of the University
who took military work during their junior and senior year
beyond the period in which it was a required study. Inasmuch
as these students devote considerable time to the military de-
partment, he felt that they should receive some credit for this
as for other laboratory work. President Barker suggested that
no action be taken at this time, but that the members should
think it over and consider it further, at the next meeting of
the Faculty.

Dr. Tigert then arose to discuss the relations of the
Faculty body in general, to tho athletics of the University.
He felt that the Athletic Committee lacked the entire co—op-

oration and hearty support from the faculty members that it

ought to have. The relations of the Faculty to athletics wore










 discussed in an informal manner Dy Professors Jhalkley, Lelchar,
miller, Turner, and Roberts.

i The meeting than adjourned.
