On Senate request re later opening
and closing of Session
It was reported that the Faculty of Arts and
Science and the Faculty of Applied Science had recommended
that no change be made in the dates for opening and closing
of the University Session. As no recommendations were
received from the Faculties of Agriculture and Law, this
matter was tabled to the next meeting of Senate.
Recommendation re re-organization
of Master's  courses
At the   December meetings of Faculties the  following
recommendations were made with regard to the  question of
placing courses leading  to a Master's Degree under the
direction of  the proposed School of  Graduate Studies:
Faculty  of  Arts and Science
That   the  courses leading  to  the degree  of Master
of Arts be placed under the direction of  the
School of Graduate Studies.
Faculty of Applied Science
That we recommend that the  courses leading to the
degree of M.A.Sc.   be under the  direction of  the
School of  Graduate  Studies.
Faculty of Agriculture
That the  Faculty of Agriculture recognizes that
there is  considerable merit  in any particular
Faculty,   and  especially the  Department concerned,
having jurisdiction over the Master's Degree.
Nevertheless,  in order to maintain a uniformly
high standard of work throughout  the University,
it is recommended that candidates for the Master's
Degree be  placed under the   jurisdiction of the
Graduate  School. 1448
Wednesday, December 15, 1948.
This Faculty feels that certain precedents
and minor regulations which it has found by
experience to be especially desirable for its
own especial needs will be respected and given
every consideration in any regulation set out
by the Graduate School.
Dr. Brink)
Mr. Angus)  That these recommendations of the
Faculties be approved in principle.
Carried.
Mr. Fulton re-opened the question of dates of
the University Session and asked for the reasons why it was
felt wise to make no change.  In reply, the reasons given
by the Faculties reporting were read, as follow:
(1) A survey by the Employment Bureau shows that
later dates while being an advantage to certain
industries, would be a decided disadvantage to
others.
(2) It is desirable that different universities
open and close on comparable dates, in the
interest of common standards, transfers, etc.
(3) Meetings of Learned Societies which Faculty
members are expected to attend call for similar
closing dates.
(4) If the two terms are to be nearly equal in
length and to be separated by the Christmas
holidays, the session must open as early as
possible.
From the Faculty of Arts and Science
Proposed changes in Pharmacy course
Notice was received that at its meeting on
December 1st, 1948, the Faculty of Arts and Science had
approved a revised Calendar description of the course
leading to the degree of B.S.p. as recommended by Professor
E. L. Woods, Head of the Department of Pharmacy.  The major L *
1449
Wednesday, December 15, 1948.
changes involved raising the standard of admission to the
Second Year in Pharmacy to 601, based on the work of the
First Year and the Qualifying Examination, and limiting
the admissions to Second Year to fifty students a year.
It was pointed out that the only alternative to limiting
admission to this Department would be to increase the
accommodation and staff by 50%.  The Secretary read the
proposed Calendar statement concerning priority In the
admission of applicants:
"On account of limited laboratory accommodation
the number of students admitted to the Second Year
is restricted to 50, selected as follows from
candidates who have met all requirements of the
First Year and practical training, and who have
passed the Entrance Examination:
(a) Veterans, and applicants with 18 months or
more of practical experience as registered
students will be admitted on a preferred
basis.
(b) Applicants with from 12 to 18 months practical
experience as Registered Students other than
veterans will be listed in order of merit, as
determined by an average of the First Year
average mark and the Entrance Examination mark,
and the top candidates will be admitted to the
extent that the maximum of 5° students for the
year will permit."
Dr. Turnbull)
Dean Chant  )  That the recommendation of the
Department of Pharmacy be accepted.
In amendment
Dr. Foerster)
Dr. Turnbull)
That this proposal be given effect in
September 1950, unless further
investigation by the Chairman in consultation with the Head of the Department
of Pharmacy indicates that no undue
hardship would be imposed on students at
present in practical training by giving
effect to this in September 1949. 1450
Wednesday, December 15, 1948.
The amendment and the motion as amended were carried.
Courses for the Summer Session 1949
At its meeting on December 1st, 1948, the Faculty

Summer of 1*549 as presented by Dr. Cameron be

Association and the Canadian Association of Occupational

Dear Curtis reported, as he had been asked to do
by the last meeting of Senate, regarding the case of Mr.
Gordon Martin.  He stated that the question of Mr. Martin's
admission to the Bar of British Columbia had been fully
considered by the appropriate Committee of that Bar; that
the reasons for the refusal of the Committee to recommend
his admission had been submitted to the solicitor in writing
and that he understood that an appeal was being taken from
this decision to the Courts. In the discussion that followed
the Chair suggested and the Senate agreed that the
Registrar, Mr. C# b. 'Wood, Dean Gage and such others as
they might wish to consult should work out a scheme which
would insure that every student proposing to take a
professional course which would require enrollment in a
professional society should be advised before beginning
the course to take up the matter of his professional
enrollment with the society in question. 1464
