Culminating more than two years of effort on the part of University
officials, and more than four months of work by faculty committees,
the University College project was unanimously adopted by the General
Committee on the University College yesterday afternoon. The plan
as adopted, if finally ratified, spells the end of the present system of
freshman and sophomore education at Michigan, and imposes between
all high school graduates and the professional schools of the University
a two year preparatory course.
The College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, under its pro-
visions, becomes a professional school, and only through successful con
pletion of two years of work in the University College will students be
admitted to its classes. The courses in nedicine, law, and engineering
will not be substantially changed,

degrees will remain as a requirement

president of the Interfraternity coun-

Olthe first ballot.
The new president of the council
was chosen by group four of the di-
vision of the fraternities, composed ofj
11 organizations on the campus. Eight
fraternities were represented at the
meeting held yesterday afternoon in
the Union. The vote for the two can-
didates stood at 4-4, but Knapp was
elected on the deciding vote.
The electoin of a new president of
the council was made necessary by
the graduation of Wayne Schroeder,
'28, at the end of last semester. He
formerly was presiding officer of the
interfraternity group.
The newly elected president hasj
been active in campus activities
during the past. He is treasurer of
the Senior literary class, and was as-

his junior year., Stambaugh, whom he
defeated for the council presidency,

of completion in the regular engin-

Regents Must Approve
The plan will be presented for
final ratification to the faculties of
the various schools and colleges now
on the campus, it has been announc-
ed, and ultimately to the Regents,
probably in their March meeting. It
is unlikely that any opposition will
develop among the faculties since all
have had a part in its framing, ac-
cording to University officials, and
quite inconceivable that the Regents
will oppose the step, since they have
been aware of its promotion since
its earliest stages.
The faculty of the new unit will
not be organized into separate groups
to be independent of existing units,
but will be an integral part of the
various departments of instruction
now existing. This faculty will de-
fine requirements for admission to
the University College, and shall
have the power of recommending
certificates to be granted to students
who have successfully completed the
first two years of work. In this way,
students unfitted to continue their
University work into one of the pro-
fessional schools will 'be eliminated.
Recommendations for admission to the
various nrofessional schools will be
made by this faculty of the Univer-
sity College, and also the questions
of admission with advanced standing
and disciplinary questions.
Executives In ChIarge
Tilhe administration of the college
otherwise will be in the hands of an
executive committee of ten, to con-
sist of the registrar of the Universi-
ty, and six men elected from the
faculty of the Engineering College
and four from the University Sen-
ate. The executive committee will
serve as a standing comniittee on the
curriculum and will have as one of
its functions the stimulation of re-
search regarding instrumental meth-
ods. It will also have in its charge
the appointment of :faculty advisers.
It is in regard to this last phase
of faculty advisers that the Univer-
sity College offers the widest diver-
gence from the present plan. Each
student entering the University Col-
lege hvill have the opportunity of
choosing a major interest and will
seem best suited to his purpose. In
be asigned to a group whose aims
assigning students to groups special
weight will be given to the student's
indication of his major interest and
in assigning him to a faculty advis-
er, account will be taken of common
bonds of interest in subject matter
and specialization. Students who do
not indicate a major interest will also
)be assigned to groups under sympa-
thetic faculty members.
The reports as adopted leave con-
siderable room for variation from the
present system at the discretion of
the new organization, and it is pro-
bable that a broader opportunity for
work on their own initiative will
be afforded to students enrolling.
The adoption of the reports came
after four months of work on the
various phases of tie University Cob
loge by the General committee ap-
pointed last fall from the University
Senate. Prof. H. C. Sadler served as
chairman of the sub-committee on
faculty, Prof. C. S. Yoakum served
as chairman of the sub-committee on
selection, placement, and guidance of
students, and Dean G. C. Huber,
served as chairman of the sub-com-
mittee on curriculum.
