There was read an appeal from
George Bell against the decision of Prof.
Ferguson to inflict certain penalties upon
him. The Senate having heard
and considered the communication resolved
as follows:

(1) That if a student persists in coming
unprepared for their daily oral examinations
a Professor may in the exercise
of his judgement, require him to
do his work in writing.

2. That the Senate alone has authority
to deprive a student of the right
to have his name called when the class
roll is called.

3. That the Senate alone has authority
to expel a student from his class.

4. With regard to the imposition complained
of by Mr Bell, the Senate
does not, in the absence of Prof. Ferguson
come to any decision.

Closed with prayer.
W. Snodgrass, D.D., Principal
J.B. Mowat, Secretary
