RESOLVED, that the faculty of the University be required to

and for the purpose of making suggestions to the Regents of
the entire work of the University.

Professor in his Department at least once in a week for
the purpose of making suggestions and directing the work,

less laboratory work done. That laboratory work should be
discontinued except for such students as desire to pursue a
special course of instruction in some special branch requiring

days may be allowed if the President so directs.
We believe that a more thorough supervision and a more strict
discipline should be maintained and the President is hereby auth-
orized and instructed to exercise full power and authority in all
matters coming under his control. These resolutions shall take
effect and be in force on and after the beginning of the Fall
