of Governors the Chairman pointed out that Senate could not abrogate

the Universities Act.

Winter Session Courses - space problems
Concern was expressed regarding the problem of students who could
not register in courses they required due to the fact that courses had
been filled when they came to register.  It was explained that estimates
were made of the number of students likely to be enrolling in each
course and sections were arranged accordingly.  Budgeting arrangements
often made it impossible to open additional sections if the courses
were filled.  However, it was stated that if a student required a
particular course for graduation space would be made available for him.
Following further discussion it was agreed that a statement to this
effect would be inserted in the Registration Guide and the Calendar. Other Business
