have completed all the requirements outlined on
pp. 116-131 of the 1952-53 Calendar. The
appropriate parts of the section on 'Double Degrees'

deleted from next year's calendar.  It will be

"2.  In future any student, previously enrolled in a
course leading to another degree, who wishes to
proceed to the B.A. degree, shall petition the
Committee on Admission, Standing and Courses for a
course of study.
"3. The following general rules are outlined for the
guidance of the Committee on Admission, Standing and
Courses in determining the credit towards a B.A.
degree which will be given for courses taken while
proceeding to a degree other than the B.A. It is
understood, however, that minor variations from this
pattern may be expected.
(a) Credit will be given towards the B.A. degree
only for courses in the Faculty of Arts and
bcience accepted for credit towards a B.A.
degree, or for courses which in the opinion
of the Faculty are equivalent to such courses.
(b) Credit up to a maximum of 30 units (or 33
units in the case of students proposing
Honours) may be granted in the work of the
First and Second Years.
(c) Not more than 15 units (or 18 units for students
proposing Honours) may be granted in the work
of the Third Year.  The maximum amount of
credit which will be granted to a student
transferring from a course of study leading
to a degree other than the B.A. will be 45
units (or 48 units in the case of students
proposing Honours).
(d) Therefore each such student will be required
to complete his Fourth Year by obtaining
standing in at least 15 units of courses in
the Faculty before the degree of B.A. is
awarded.
(e) It is understood that the courses required
to complete the work for the B.A. degree
may be taken in Winter and/or Summer
Session or by Correspondence."

History of Christianity
Dr. MacKenzie presented a proposal which he had
received from Dr. R. M. ^lark, that an optional or
voluntary non-credit course of lectures on the History of
Christianity be given on the campus. Dr. W. s. Taylor
stated that he personally would be very glad to see such
a course offered, to test the interest of the students in
this subject.  It was agreed that this proposal should be
referred to the President's Committee on Spiritual Values,
under the Chairmanship of Dr. John Grant of Union College,
for discussion, and if approved by them, that they should
arrange for this course to be offered in the next academic
year (1953-54).
