Status: Needs Review



serve the purposes of the college of agriculture and engi-
neering and should have a larger place but inside the curricula of
the technological schools. There are in North Carolina a good
number of colleges of arts and sciences and many departments
of education but there is only one school of agriculture, one school
of textiles, one department of vocational education training teach-
ers to teach agriculture and to teach industrial arts. By wise
concentration on function it will not much longer be true that the
North Carolina schools have to get most of the teachers of indus-
trial arts outside of North Carolina, that North Carolina makes no
direct appropriation for agricultural research at State College, and
that we have for chemical engineering at one institution a lack
of staff and at another a lack of equipment.

In the proposed allocation of functions each college, school, and
division of the University would serve, we believe, more truly and
greatly its purpose. We would allocate to the technological college
of the University, to the College of Agriculture and Engineering,
the school of engineering and to the University at Chapel Hill
the college of arts and sciences (including applied science, e.g., pre-
medical) which has always been there. Arts and sciences or the
humanities, the natural and exact sciences, and the social sciences
will be more deeply under and within the technological schools at
State College, a part of rather than apart from these schools. On
the other hand, the sciences at Chapel Hill will not be abated or
diminished but rather will grow in use and power as the years go
by. The University of Chicago has no engineering school, and
yet its departments of mathematics and science, basic both to its
college of arts and sciences and to its graduate school, are recog-
nized as useful and eminent by the whole world.

In making my recommendations for a clear-cut allocation of
functions as a long-run policy I have not based them on temporary
costs and damages. With three years in which to make the adjust-
ments a growing University will find use for most of the property
involved. The temporary costs and damages will be absorbed in
the larger values of a coordinated and consolidated University
given to the development of youth and the building of the state.

To this end we make the following recommendations:

1. Effective September, 1935, no new registrations in the
school of engineering or for any curricula in the school of engi-
neering of the University at Chapel Hill and no new registration
in the school or for any curricula in the school of science and
