Issues Statement Listing Five Objections Before
Special Meeting of Literary Faculty;
Disapproves Innovations,
President .\lexander G. Ruthven handed the '1i-iversity College pro-
ject. inherited from the Little regime, a distinct setback yesterday after-
noon when he issued a statement opposing its establishment as a took
radical change in ntiiversity policies. The President, while recognizing
that educational methods oi the campus require revision, statel. in con-
forinitv with his conception of the college as a plastic and ever-changin;;
institution, that he would favor rather "controlled experimentation" ii
solving pedagogic problens than the acute changes which establishing a
University College would incur.
The U iversity College plan. which has been in a condition of flux
since its rejection by the faculties more than a year ago, has been before
the committee which worked out its details and also the scrutiny o fthe
deans since that time.
President Ruthven favored extending the policy of establishing more
j - combined curricula bet ween the lit-
erarv college and the professional
schools which has been increasingl
practiced during the past few
o cnths..

and that It be given power to de-
cide the larger problems relative to
students as deferred rushing, inter-
fraternity matters, the policies for
social functions, and class activi-
ties, and the like. Such a body
would have as student members the
heads of the various student pub-
lications and organizations, and1
hence would be capable of solving
major student problems in a man-
ner agreeable to both the under-
graduate body and the administra-
tion.
Lowry Resigns.
Lowry was graduated from the l
University at the close of the past
semester and submitted his resig-
nation to the council after making
the report. In resigning he stated
that the council gives one consid-
erable of practical value that
could not be obtained in text
books. "He said that the council
this year was accomplishing more
than it hrad in the past and he
"hoped that the administration in
the near future would recognize it
'as a worthy "organization capable
of functioning as an administra-
tive board rather than merely al-
lowing it to carry on routine work."
Cole Chosen Treasurer.
Lowry, who is treasurer of the
National Student Federation, will
serve- as correspondent for the
council, for. the rest of the year. A
committee consisting of Donald
Kline, '30, chairman, Jerrold Curry,
'31, and Matthew Haddon, '31E, was
appointed last night toeconsider
possible aid which the Federation
might give the council in meeting
its problems in the future.
Lowry was treasurer of the coun-
cil, and though his successor as a
councilman cannot be named until
next week, a new treasurer was
elected. Richard Cole, '30, was
unanimously chosen for the posi-
tion.
