ing was called to order at 12:15 noon.  Present:  Regents Hardy,

Student Fees

    President Stout recommended change in course fees for the
    College of Arts and Science as follows:

    (1)  Fees for new courses.

         Art     277    $ 5
         Art     278      5
         Art     326      5
         Art     346      5
         Art     471     10
         Zoology 223     10
         Zoology 224      5
         Zoology 226      5

         These 3 courses in Zoology replace Zoology 211 and 246,
         for which fee deletions are listed below.

    (2)  Fees to be deleted.

         Art     133    $ 5 (course number changed to 326)
         Zoology 211     10 (course dropped)
         Zoology 246      5 (course dropped)
         Biology 480      5
         Botany  491-492  5
         Zoology 491-494  5

    (3)  In line with the curriculum changes in the Department
         of Health, Physical Education and Athletics recommend
         that fees read $3 to $10 instead of $3.  The Women's
         Division has read $3 to $10, while the Men's had read
         $3.

         The integration of the two Departments and the inclusion
         of co-educational activity classes call for a more var-
         ied use of equipment and facilities for the men.

         The breakdown of fee changes follows:

         1.  Theory Courses                        No Charge

         2.  Recreation Games                         $ 4.00
             Bowling                                   10.00
             Life Saving                                5.00
             Beginners Swimming                         5.00

         3.  All Other Activity Courses                 3.00

         These fees cover towel charges, special equipment and
         use of outside facilities.

     Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the above
     fee changes be approved.
