MANY CHANGES MADE
New Catalog Outlines Courses
For Engineers To Follow
A close scrutiny of the new catalogs
just issued from the University office
reveals some interesting changes in the
courses and management of the Uni
versity. Tlie book contains in all 273
pages, exactly 50 more than last year.
I he greatest change is in the Engi
neering department, where the elec
tive plan is departed from somewhat
and regular courses are outlined for the
students to follow. In most of the
branches, however, it is only advisory
and much choice is left with the student.
The notable exception is in the case of
Mining, where a regular course is spe
cified as a requisite to graduation.
Another change is in the addition of a
course in Railroad Engineering, which
has heretofore been given as a branch
of the Civil Engineering department
under Professor McAlister. Professor
F. G. Frink is at the head of the new
Professor Buchen will continue his
courses in Argumentation and Debating.
Besides, he will have full charge of the
freshmen and sophomores in the regu
lar Elocution and Public Speaking cours
es. Professor Glen will devote all his
attention in this line to the upper class
Professor Samuel E. Eliot will have
full charge of Psychology, and in addi
tion will take over the work in Ethics
which is now being done by Professor
Sheldon. 1 he latter will still continue
his work in Philosophy and Education.
\ale heads the list of universities
in regard to the number of undergrad
uates enrolled in the Bible study classes,
with 673 members.
A rule forbidding faculty members
iiom smoking in public is in contem
plation at the University of Kansas.
