Graham Memorial Board of Di
rectors. The center will be located in
the main office of the. building

The newspaper where Ben

Findings of a 1948 student com
mittee on curriculum evaluation
and a joint faculty-student group
in 1949 have been helpful in con
sidering changes of the General
College curriculum,' Dean Spruill
The student report, compiled ia
1948 and presented September 26,
1949, offers "interesting and use-
f ul suggestions," Spruill said. The
joint faculty student committee
incorporated much of the stu
dent findings and now the admin
istrative board and some inde
pendent departmental committees
are working on the questions of
electives, general education
courses, and foreign language re
quirements. The question of "When speciali
zation should begin in college"
was also carefully considered
by the board, Spruill pointed cut.
After the joint faculty group
chairmaned by Dean Henry Bran
dis made its report in spring, 1950,
the School of Business Adminis
tration established a committee t
make recommendations for ths
school and for freshmen an
sophomores. Since their proposals
involved such substantial chanrr
