appointed in September, 1959, to study the description of
the proposed new course Religious Studies 100, and on the
basis of its description to give an opinion as to whether
it was in accordance with the terms of the University Act.
The Committee had considered the proposal from the legal
point of view, and reported that the proposed course was
not in accordance with the terms of the University Act.
Father Carr outlined the content of the course in
somewhat greater detail, and described the text and references
which had been contemplated.  He requested that, in view of
the opinion of the Committee, the course should be withdrawn. Wednesday,   February 10th,   1960    2798
The President  suggested that  the new Senate,   at
its meeting in September,   1960,   should consider the
desirability of establishing a Senate Committee on Proposed
Courses  in Religious Studies,   whose members  should be
familiar with at least  the  peripheral  disciplines  of
religious  studies,   to discuss  the content  of such courses
with their  proponents.
Proposed Change  in Requirements
for University Entrance
A committee under  the chairmanship of Dean  Gage,
appointed by  the Senate  in February,   1959,   had been
considering a recommendation from the Faculty of Arts and
Science  that  the minimum academic qualification for
admission  to the University  should be  raised to  "at least
'C   standing  (58%)   in each subject presented for University
entrance",   with the proviso  that a student with "C-"
standing in  one  subject  only,   might be  admitted provided
that he had  "C+11  standing or higher in at least one  other
subject  presented for University entrance.
As  instructed,   the committee had discussed  this
proposal with the Department of Education members of  the
Board of Examiners.     The Board had concluded that  "the
objectives  of the proposal would be better realized through
appropriate  raising of failure rates the amount  of
raise  to be  determined on  the basis  of  study of 1958  testing
carried out  through the  Department of Education,  and on the
other evidence available." Wednesday,   February 10th,   1960     2799
Dean Gage)
Dr. James)  That the recommendation of the Board of
Examiners be accepted, on the understanding
that the effect of the raise in failure

extent of the control exercised by the University over
educational standards in the high schools.
Mr. Ladner)
Mr. Nemetz)  That the motion be now put, and further
discussion on educational policy
postponed to a later meeting.
Carried.
The motion by Dean Gage and Dr. James was Carried.
Proposed Advisory Programme
for New Students
A progress report of the Committee on Proposed
Advisory Programme for New Students was circulated at the
meeting. Mr. McLean summarized the conclusions reached by
the Committee:
1. Any arrangement which would assist the coming together
of students and the members of the Faculty would be
desirable.
2. If a programme is introduced it should be strictly
voluntary.
3. Any system would be successful only if it secured the
full cooperation of all Faculty members concerned.
4. Only those Faculty members who have willingness,
interest and ability in this work should be asked
to participate.
Realizing that the present Counselling Office was
unable to meet student demands, many of which did not
properly fall within its sphere of responsibility, the Wednesday, February 10th, 1960 2800
Committee recommended that a group of Faculty members,
chosen in general to reflect a broad representation of the
various areas of study in the Faculty of Arts and Science,
be asked to serve as advisers to First Year students, and
that the students be informed of the identity of these
advisers at the beginning of the academic year.
It was agreed that Dean Chant, Dr. McGregor, Dean
Gage and Mr. McLean should select an appropriate group of
members of the teaching staff in the Faculty of Arts and
Science, although the Senate was not necessarily indicating
its approval of the recommendations.
Leave of Absence

forward to the Executive of the Faculty Association for
study and comment a report on leave of absence practices
prepared by a sub-committee of the Deans.  The comments of

prior to the meeting.

Dr. Cowan )  That the sub-committee under Dean
Matthews discuss with the appropriate
Faculty representatives (either the

previous meeting, were returned to the agenda. The President
pointed out that the first two had, in effect, been
considered during the discussion on requirements for
University Entrance.
In respect to Government scholarship grants to
First and Second Class students, Dean Gage stated that the
action of the Government appeared to be having the very
desirable effect of stimulating students to work harder;
that the grants were made and awarded by the Government;
that the Government had been most generous in providing
bursaries from surplus scholarship funds; and that the
University should allow the programme to become more
firmly established before attempting to assess its strength
or weakness.
In respect to teaching seminars, Dean Chant
reminded the Senate that the National Conference of
Canadian Universities had arranged a programme of this
nature some years previously.
It was agreed that Dean Chant and the Committee
on Methods of Instruction should consider the proposal of
the Alumni Board of Management and report to Senate at a Wednesday, February 10th, 1960 2802
later meeting.  Dean Matthews suggested that the Committee
might at the same time consider the matter of teaching
seminars for members of staff instructing new students.

Federation proposing a combined South Seas Cruise - Summer
Session for a group of British Columbia teachers during the

courses; the teachers would pay the regular Summer Session
fees, attend regular lectures for the normal period of the
Summer Session, and write the usual examinations for credit.
The instructor would be appointed by the University, and
his cruise expenses paid by the teachers. Wednesday, February 10th, 1960 2806

and further education would be advantageous to the
professional development of the teachers.
