At a recent meeting of the Faculty a committee consisting of President Roberts,
Dr. Taylor, Professor Hedman, Dr. Parmenter, and Mr. Chipman, was appointed to
draw up and submit to the Faculty a new set of Administrative Rules. The
present rules were adopted some years ago before the present semester system
had come into existence as well as at a time when the student body numbered
considerably less than at present. These two conditions have made it imperative
that the rules receive a thorough overhauling with a view to meeting more
satisfactorily the present day needs. When finally adopted the rules will be
printed in pamphlet form and distributed to each member of the student body.
