In Old Days Students Had
“The Place of the Faculty in Univer
sity Government” was the topic of a
paper Tear] at the first meeting of the
faculty colloquium Tuesday evening, by
Dr. Henry D. Sheldon, dean of the school
of education. In the paper Dean Shel
don divided the life of the University in
to four periods and pointed out tlm dif
ferent methods of faculty government
during each period.
The first period came between the '
years 187(5 and 1893. John W. Johnson
was the president of the University at
that time. During this time the faculty
was a small body that met weekly and
kept strict control over the students at
tending the University. The faculty at
that time was highly paternal in uat'ure
und the rules were very strict. A few
of the examples of the strictness of the
faculty were given bv Dr. Sheldon. One
student was compelled to apologize for
whispering in class; another was sus
pended for making the “bluff” that he
“could put something over on the fac
ulty.” During those days it was impos
sible for a student to go to a theater
without the consent of the faculty. Per
haps the worst problem was that of the
saloons and a great deal of the faculty’s
time was taken up in the discussion of
methods of dealing with students found
entcj ing them.
Faculty in Factions.
The second period comes between the
1893 and 190” During these years
Charles H. Chapman and Frank Strong
were the presidents of the institution.
During this period, said Dean Sheldon,
th- faculty branched out and tried its
hand at governing various other campus
institutions. This proved a failure, how
ever, for at that time the faculty was
divided into two factions and any new
improvement oir change that was backed
by the one was certain to be downed by
the other. In 1903 president P. L.
Campbell came to the University and this
marks the end of the faculty strife and
the beginning of a period of construc
tion. At this time the faculty assisted
the president in working out a new re
gime. The extension division was es
tablished and new policies were worked
out regarding graduate work and summer
System is Developed.
From 1014 until the present time
murks the fourth period to which Dean
Sheldon referred. The government dur
ing this period has become more com
plicated. Aside from the regular faculty
meetings that are held once a month an
other faculty meeting is held every
month that is known as the faculty col
loquium. This is a meeting of the fac
ulty as a whole committee, Resolutions
can be made and voted upon, but during
this meeting the faculty is acting in un
official c.ii acit.v. The discussions are
always informal but some of the most
important questions arising on the cam
pus in recent years have had their birth
at these meetings. Another faculty in
stitution is the Advisory board, consist
ing of three deans and three faculty mem
bers, elected for one year. This is a spe
cial committee to present the faculty
point of view to (lie administration.
According to Dean Sheldon, the main
values of faculty government ns the Fni
versity has it are these:
(1) The faculty has shown consider
able capacity to work out constructive
solutions to University problems. (3)
As long as the faculty has a voice in de
terming internal policies the faculty mem
bers are more contented. (3) The ex
istence of the faculty us a legal body en

Orchestra Reorganized By
35 Members Out for First Rehearsal;
Tryouts to be Held Soon
For Second IB roup.
The University Orchestra is organized
for work again this year with Professor
Underwood in charge. About 35 old
and new members turned out for the
first rehearsal last Tuesday evening and
others will probably be added soon. There
is plenty of good material and a really
fine orchestra is expected.
The annual concert trip is to be one
of the features of the year. Professor
Underwood desires to impress upon auy
and all students who have orchestral in
struments of any kind that they are
eligible and wanted for a second orchestra
which will be formed. There will be no
tryouts for these students, and all comers
will be accepted, it was announced.
A new feature which Professor Under
wood promises for this year is a great
deal of variety in the repertoire of the
orchestra. Many persons think that a
good orchestra will play only technical
and classical selections, but the Univer
sity orchestra is preparing to offer the
latest popular and jazz music in real
style as well as classical music, and it
will he ready soon to make its first ap
pearance before the student body.
