The report, as amended, is as follows:
THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE FACULTIES
IN REFERENCE TO PRIZES AND SCHOLARSHIPS WILL BE PRESENTED TO SENATE AT ITS MEETING ON DECEMBER 17TH.
The Committee on Prizes and Scholarships has considered the gift of five three-year scholarships, each of
the annual value of $1200, made to the University by His
Honour the Lieutenant Governor of the Province, with the
object of developing in Canada a wider knowledge of the
people of France, their ideals, literature, art and science; and thus promoting a better mutual understanding
between French and British in the Dominion, while making
available to British Columbia in particular the culture
and science specially developed in France.  We recommend
the acceptance of the gift on the following terms:
(1) That the Scholarships be given for study in the
University of France or at one of the other official
institutions of higher education in France*
(The second part of this clause is intended to
take in such advanced schools of applied science
(Forestry, Engineering, Architecture etc.) as are
not part of the national university).
(2) That they be open to graduates of the University of British Columbia who intend to take up
teaching as a profession.
(3) That each successful candidate must undertake
to return to British Columbia to practise his profession for such time as seems reasonable in the
opinion of the Senate of The University of British
Columbia.
(4) That a scholarship may be held for three years
provided the holder can show from year to year satisfactory progress in the course of study undertaken: 385

Hr. President
and Hembers
of   Senate:
The   committee   appointed   "to  examine   into   and  report"   on   two   requests   made   by   Rev.    C.   E.   Evans,   M.A.
on   behalf   of   teachers  and  students  of   the   Academy  of
the   Sacred  Heart   beg  to   report   as   follows:
Your   committee,   including  G.   E.   Robinson,    Cecil
Killam   and   the   undersigned,   met   at   the   University  on
December  1st   from 5   to   6  p.m.   and  decided   to  meet
again   on   December  4th   at   8   p.m.   with   Father  Evans   to
discuss  both   requests  with him.
I.      After  a   consideration   of   the   request   that
special   arrangements   for  Extra-Mural   Courses   for
members   of   the   staff   of   the   Academy  be   made,   as   outlined by  Father Evans   In  his   letter,   your   committee
decided   to   recommend as   follows:
(1)     That   Father Evans  be   informed   that
Extra-Mural   courses,   covering  the   first   three   years
of university work,   as   recommended  by  the   Faculty  of
Arts  and  Science   to   Senate   on  October  15th,   1924   and
accepted  by  the   latter,   will   be   open   to   teachers   of
the   Academy  of   the   Sacred Heart   on   the  usual   conditions,   as   your   committee   can   see   no   insuperable
difficulty   in   those   teachers   complying with   the   said
conditions. 368
t Wednesday,   December  17th,   1924
(2)     As   It   Is   claimed   there   are   ten   teachers
in   the   Academy   now  qualified   to   take   up   the  work of
the   Third   Year  in Arts   extra-murally,   we  would  point
out   that,   if   such   is   the   case,   there   i,s   greater  justification   for  offering  third   year work  next   summer
than   there   would  be  were   these   students   not   available.
In  canvassing  the   situation  in  regard  to   the   necessity  for  offering  third  year work extra-murally  next
summer,   we   recommend:
That   the   teachers   of   the   Academy be   considered  as  possible   students  and  encouraged   to   attend
should   the   course   be   given.
II.     On the   question  of  permitting  students   of  the
Academy  of   the   Sacred Heart   to   take   the   First   Year
of   the   Arts   Course   instead   of   the   Senior Matriculation
Course,   your   committee   find  that,   as   changes  have
been made   in  both   courses   since   the   request  was  made
last  April   and   Father Evans  has  assured  your   committee   that  his   reasons   for  this   request   no   longer hold
in   consequence,   no   action  by  Senate   in   this  matter   is
necessary.
Respectfully   submitted,

Secretary and   Convenor  of   Committee.

342        To draw up an Appreciation of the late Dr. Mnllin.
That the Senate has heard with extreme regret of
the death of R. H. Mullin, B.A., M.B., Professor and
Head of the Department of Bacteriology and Public
Health.  Dr. Mullin was a graduate in Arts and Medicine of the University of Toronto and after several
years of successful work in the University of Minnesota joined the staff of The University of British
Columbia.  His Practical Laboratory work and his contribution to the science of Public Health were abundant proof of his fine ability.  He was largely instrumental in organizing the Department of Nursing
and contributed greatly to its success.  He occupied
an enviable reputation in his own fraternity and was
highly esteemed as a citizen and educator.  The
Senate would extend to his friends the sense of loss
which the members feel in the death of a loyal and
capable member of the Staff of the University.
