Dividing the total quarter hours of instruction, 82,044, by 48, 
the equivalent student-hour load for a 36 week college year, 
gives a quotient of 1709.02 as a weighted student factor. 

The per capita cost for 1948-49 equals the Total Educational 
Expenditure of $957,586.77, divided by the weighted student 
factor of 1709.02, gives a quotient of $560.31. This per capita 
cost of $560.31 for 1948-49 compares favorably with the 
$486.92 per capita cost of the previous year, 1947-48. 

L. Scholarship reports 

1. A list of students holding Teachers College Scholarships 
for the Fall Quarter, 1949, in triplicate, has been mailed

ILLINOIS STATE NORMAL UNIVERSITY 

NORMAL, ILLINOIS 

President's Report to the State Teachers College Board for the 

Meeting in Chicago, January 9, 1950 

To the Chairman and Members of the Teachers College Board : 

The following report is submitted from Illinois State Normal 
University. 

Preliminary Statement. This report is the first one submitted 
since that of August 16, 1949, at which time graduates of June 13 
and August 12, 1949, were included.

Per Capita Cost for University Year, 1948-1949 

a. Following the plan of computation agreed upon by the 
presidents and registrars of the five state teachers colleges 
on February 2, 1941, the per capita cost as computed is 
here presented on such a basis. 

Semester Hours Earned 

Summer session, 1948 10,378 

First semester, 1948-1949 32,535 

First semester, extension 999 

Second semester, 1948-1949 31,356 

Second semester, extension 842.5 

Pre-summer session 1949 20 

76,130.5 

76,130.5 semester hours divided by 32 semester hours 
(average annual student load) gives 2379 students as the 
basic figure for computing per capita cost. 

b. Cost of operating the University for the year beginning 
July 1, 1948, and ending June 30, 1949, including all 
items except Permanent Improvements and Expenditures 
for Fell Hall, Smith Hall, and University Cafeteria 

Expenditures— July 1, 1948-June 30, 1949 

General Administration and General Expense $ 263,845.04 

Instruction 957,796.78 

Extension 5,223.90 

Libraries and Museum 104,040.35 

Physical Plant 234,293.64 

Total Expenditures $1,565,199.71 

c. Computation of Per Capita Cost 

Total Expenditures $1,565,199.71 -f- 2379 = $657.92 

The per capita cost of $657.92 for the past fiscal year is 
somewhat higher than the $596.56 representing the per 
capita cost for the previous year. This is to be expected 
when the increase in enrollment, additional services, and 
higher costs are taken into consideration. Illinois State 
Normal University will always have a comparatively high 
per capita cost because of educating teachers in all fields 
and levels of education, including special education and 
the Graduates School. In these areas, there are many ad- 
vanced classes with relatively small enrollments. How- 
ever, as compared with most colleges and universities, the 
per capita cost in any teachers colleges is low.

7. Scholarships Certified 

a. As a matter of record, the attention of the Teachers Col- 
lege Board is called to a list of scholarship students at- 
tending the 1949 summer session which has been sent to 
the Coordinator for approval by the Chairman and Sec- 
retary of the Board. Clearance of this list will result in a 
transfer of funds by the State Treasurer from the General 
Revenue Account to the Income Fund of Illinois State 
Normal University to the extent of $1948.00, with an ad- 
ditional $468.75 transferred to the Illinois State Normal 
University Trust Fund for Activity and Graduation fees, 
Graduation fees amounting to $35.00. It is recommended 
that this action be approved by the Teachers College Board. 

b. As a further matter of record, attention of the Teachers 
College Board is called to a list of scholarship students at- 
tending Illinois State Normal University during the cur- 
rent first semester of the 1949-1950 school year, which is 
being sent to the Coordinator for approval by the Chairman 
and Secretary of the Board. There are 758 names of 
scholarship students on this list involving the total of 
$30,061.00. It is interesting to note that one-third of the 
Teachers College Scholarship holders from the entire State 
of Illinois are in attendance at Illinois State Normal 
University. It is recommended that this list as submitted be 
approved by the Teachers College Board.

The foregoing listing includes first field or major students. 
Every department carries a considerable load beyond the 
major students, especially second field or minor students. 
It should be noted that the entire group of 50 special tui- 
tion students represents nurses from Mennonite and St. 
Joseph's Hospitals, with which the University has an affiili- 
ation. The unclassified students are those preparing to 
teach but not definitely working toward a degree. The 
post graduates are persons who have completed work for 
a bachelor's degree or perhaps even a master's degree but 
are not regularly enrolled in the Graduate School work- 
ing toward a master's degree. It is interesting to note that 
there are 345 persons majoring in elementary education. 
The increased enrollment in this area in the last two years 
should help within a year or two in relieving the great 
shortage in this field. 

b. Scholastic Qualifications of Entering Students 

It is interesting to note from the following table the 
scholastic ability of entering freshmen over a period of 
eight years as revealed by their rank in their high school 
graduating classes. These figures rather refute the idea 
that only students with mediocre scholastic ability pre- 
pare for the teaching profession, especially when one finds 
that two-thirds or more of the students entering each year 
are in the upper half of their high school classes. Attention 
is called to the 1940 figures during a period when the en- 
rollment of the University was limited, quotas were used 
for admission to departments and only those in the upper 
three-fourths of their high school classes were even con- 

21 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

sidered for admission. It is hoped that it may be possible 
to return to the high standards that were used in 1940.

c. Holding Power of the University 

Frequent reference has been made to the student holding 
power of Illinois State Normal University. By reference 
to the fall enrollment, No. 5 of this section, it will be noted 
that the seniors listed for this year total 447, which is 
exactly the same number of juniors of one year ago. It 
may also be noted that the sophomores a year ago totaled 
485 and the juniors of this year total 463. Of course, these 
do not represent the same persons but it should be pointed 
out that Illinois State Normal University will soon be 
graduating 500 or more students each year as was true be- 
fore the war when the two-year course graduates were 
included with those completing the four-year program. 

It will also be noted that the holding power between the 
freshman and sophomore years is not good, which is a 
matter of concern to this school, as well as to most others. 
This situation is receiving special consideration this year 
in the development of a better and more continuous orienta- 
tion program. 

II. FACULTY 
1. Deaths 

a. Miss Flora P. Dodge, who has been listed as Secretary 
Emeritus for a number of years, died September 17, 1949. 
Miss Dodge served as secretary to four presidents and one 
acting president, beginning her services in 1892 and con- 
tinuing until July 1, 1941. Her efficient service extended 
over many interesting years of the University in which as 
secretary to the president she exerted considerable in- 
fluence. 

b. Miss Christine A. Thoene, Assistant Professor of Educa- 
tion and Supervising Teacher in the Fifth Grade of the 
Thomas Metcalf Elementary School, died November 6, 
1949. Miss Thoene began her service with the University 
in 1919 and for a period of thirty years many present 
citizens of this and other communities came under her in- 
fluence as children in her fifth grade. Miss Thoene was 
respected by all who knew her as a generous, considerate, 
patient, and tireless teacher and friend, always ready to 
give of her time and ability to help any and all persons.

PROCEEDINGS 

Her presence and influence at Illinois State Normal Uni- 
versity will be missed but her many excellent deeds will 
long be remembered. 

2. Resignations 

As a matter of record two resignations, both at the Childrens 
School where salaries are paid through the Department of 
Public Welfare, are reported at this time. 

a. Miss Myrtle Imhoff, Instructor and Supervising Teacher 
in the First Grade at the Affiliated Childrens School, effec- 
tive September 12, 1949, because of illness in her im- 
mediate family and the necessity of moving to Arizona. 
Miss Imhoff's position is being filled at the present time by 
a substitute teacher. 

b. Miss Elizabeth Trout, Instructor in Social Science in the 
Junior High School at the Childrens School, effective 
October 7, 1949, in order to engage in other work. Miss 
Trout's position has been filled as indicated later in this 
report under New Appointments. 

3. Leaves of Absence 

a. Mr. Eugene L. Hill, Assistant Professor of Health and 
Physical Education, effective for the months of March, 
April, May, and June, 1950, in order to complete work for 
his doctor's degree at the Colorado College of Education. 
Arrangements are being made to absorb the work that Mr. 
Hill is doing. This is a sabbatical leave, for which he quali- 
fies and should receive one-half of his salary for the 
four months. 

b. Dr. Richard G. Browne, Professor of Social Science and 
Head of the Department, effective February 1, 1950, for 
the remainder of the school year, in order to accept an 
invitation to serve as Research Director for the Illinois 
School Problems Commission. It is understood that Dr. 
Browne will continue with this Commission until the open- 
ing of school in September, 1950. This leave of absence is 
without pay, since Dr. Browne will be on a salary basis 
with the Illinois School Problems Commission. Arrange- 
ments are being made to absorb his classroom work. He 
feels that he can still continue to give attention to any 
work involving the headship of the department. 

c. Miss Thalia Tarrant, Instructor and Supervising Teacher 
in the Second Grade at the Affiliated Childrens School, 
effective from April 1 for the remainder of the 1949-1950 
school year and the 1950 summer session in order to do 
further work toward her doctor's degree at the University 
of Chicago. This leave is without pay.

4. Change in Status and Salary . 

The following changes in status or salary are recommended 
for reasons listed. 

a. The salary of Miss Ella Leppert, as listed at the bottom of 
Page 9 of the June 6, 1949, Board Keport, should be 
changed from $1890.00 to $1935.00 on a half-salary basis, 
due to error in computation. 

b. The salary of Dr. Ralph A. Micken, listed at the bottom 
of Page 14 in the August 16, 1949, Report, should be 
$4995.00 in place of $4985.00 as listed, due to error in 



typm 



c. The salary of Mr. Charles A. Slagle, listed as the second 
person on Page 15 of the August 16, 1949, Report, should 
be changed from $3654.00 to $3645.00, due to a transposi- 
tion of figures. 

d. Miss Esther Vinson, listed in the Report of June 6, 1949, 
on a full time basis, has asked to be given a four-fifths 
teaching assignment at a four-fifths salary rate. Therefore 
her compensation for the school year 1949-1950 should be 
$3924.00 for the nine-month period. 

e. The salary of Miss Florence Benell should be changed from 
$460.00 per month to $375.00 per month, because of a 
lighter load being assigned to her at her request. 

f. Mr. Harold Niven, listed at the top of Page 15 of the 
August 16, 1949, Report, did not take the position it was 
assumed he would accept and therefore his name should 
be eliminated, as another person (Mr. Wilbert Hunt) has 
been recommended for this position in this present (Janu- 
ary 9, 1950) Report. 

5. New Appointments 

a. Dr. George H. Agate, as Director of the University Health

8. Positions To Be Filled 

It should be noted that three positions that have been author- 
ized and are much needed must be filled at the earliest op- 
portunity. These are combinations of teaching and semi-

a. A Director of the Bureau of Appointments, the teacher 
placement service of the University. 

b. A Principal of the Metcalf Elementary School. 

c. A Director of Audio-Visual Education. 

The first two of these positions are replacements and the last 
one is a position that most schools have at the present time 
and one that is certainly needed at Illinois State Normal Uni- 
versity, where the program of audio-visual education must 
be developed.

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

1. Progress on Present New Buildings and Campus Mechanical 
Distribution System 

a. Administration Building. Satisfactory progress is being 
made on the completion of the Administration Building 
which should be ready for occupancy April 1, 1950. Lists 
of furniture and furnishings needed have been prepared 
and bids will be called for before the end of January. 

b. Special Education Building. This building is now under 
roof and entirely enclosed and with heat available in the 
structure satisfactory progress is being made on the in- 
terior with the expectation that it will be ready for oc- 
cupancy when school opens in September 1950. The lists 
of furniture and furnishings are being prepared and re- 
quests for bids on these items, together with special 
equipment, will be made about May 1, 1950. 

c. Beef Cattle Barn. The necessary excavation and pouring 
of concrete footings for the two wings have been com- 
pleted and work started on the general structure of these 
additions at the University Farm. Unless delayed by 
unusual weather conditions, this structure should be com- 
pleted by March 1, 1950. 

d. Mechanical Distribution System. The appearance of the 
campus, with ditches everywhere, indicates all too well 
the activity in connection with the distribution of heat, 
water, sewer, and electric lines over the campus. Heat 
is already being supplied to both the Administration and 
Special Education buildings. 

2. Proposed Work on New Structures 

a. Residence Halls. All information desired by the architects 
on the two new self -liquidating residence halls has been 
provided and it is understood that satisfactory progress 
is being made on the working drawings and specifications 

34 



PROCEEDINGS 

for these structures in order that final approval may be 
given about February 1 and bids taken prior to March 
1, 1950. 

b. Addition to Fell Hall. Preliminary conferences have been 
held with the architects working on the plans for the 
addition to Fell Hall together with the change of the top 
floor of the present structure into student rooms. 

c. Elementary and High Schools. Preliminary work on the 
part of the faculty has been started in order to provide 
the architects with necessary information for drawing 
plans for the proposed new University Elementary and 
University High Schools. 

d. Student Center. A preliminary conference with the rep- 
resentatives of the bonding company as to possibilities of 
financing, on a self-liquidating basis, the student center 
has been held and information will be available to the 
Board at any time desired.

VIII. STUDENT LIFE 

1. Student Center 

As the population of the University increases the need for a 
Student Center becomes increasingly evident. This need ex- 
presses itself in both the variety of services to be rendered to 
the student body and the accommodation of a large number of 
persons who need a social center at the University. Limited 
dormitory facilities, especially for men, resulting in inade- 
quate off-campus rooming places, make all the more necessary 
a social center for the students. The present cafeteria is rap- 
idly being outgrown and the space where it is temporarily 
located is needed as a part of the Pell Hall recreational facil- 
ities. A student center would provide adequate quarters for 
a cafeteria, which would be an important source of income in 
connection with a self-liquidating program. It is hoped that 
the report from the bonding company will be such that the 
Teachers College Board may give favorable consideration to 
working out some satisfactory plan for starting on such a 
structure. This should result in a solution of the problem of 
what to do with the present unsightly remnant of a once stately 
Old Main. 

2. Student Publications 

a. The Vidette 

The quality of the weekly student paper, The Vidette, has 
been improving within the last year, but it was a source 
of genuine satisfaction to find that the paper received cer- 
tain awards at the annual meeting of the Illinois Collegiate 
Press Association on Saturday, December 3, 1949. The 
papers from twenty-two colleges were given consideration. 
The Vidette awards were 

(1) Best weekly paper (over-all) for an Illinois college 
with a four-year course. 

(2) Best individual feature story. 

(3) Best individual sports story. 

(4) Best individual original advertisement layout. 

b. The Index 

The yearbook of the University was not entered in any 
competition in the state consideration. However, it is a 
pleasure to note that a first place certificate was awarded 
The Index in the 50th Annual Yearbook Critique and 
Contest conducted by the Columbia Scholastic Press As- 
sociation in New York City, October 7, 1949.

TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

1. University Foundation Organized 

Some considerable time ago the Constitution and By-Laws of 
the proposed University Foundation were approved but it has 
been impossible to get the personnel of the Executive Com- 
mittee of the Foundation completed and officers elected until 
December 12, 1949, when at a meeting held on the campus of 
the University eight of the nine members of the Executive 
Committee were present and officers were elected. The Execu- 
tive Committee consists of 

Three ex officio members 

Chairman of the Teachers College Board, Noble J. 

Puffer, Springfield 
President of the Alumni Association, Richard V. Lind- 

sey, Galesburg 
President of the University, R. W. Fairchild, Normal 
Two members appointed from the Teachers College Board 
Richard F. Dunn, Normal 
Russel L. Guin, Danville 
Two members appointed by the Alumni Association 
Mrs. Harvey L. Stiegelmeier, Normal 
William W. McKnight, Jr., Normal 
Two members at large, one of whom must be from the Uni- 
versity faculty 

Eugene Funk, Jr., Bloomington 
F. Russell Glasener, I. S. N. U. faculty, Normal 
Officers elected were 

President, Richard F. Dunn 
Vice President, William W. McKnight, Jr. 
Secretary-Treasurer, F. Russell Glasener 
The University Foundation is now properly organized and 
chartered under the laws of the State of Illinois and ready to 
receive additional gifts to those already in its possession con- 
cerning which action could not be taken until officers had been 
elected and the secretary-treasurer authorized to proceed un- 
der bond and in directions approved by the Executive Com- 
mittee. 

2. Auditor's Report 

Illinois State Normal University has received the official audit 
of the fiscal year July 1, 1948 to June 30, 1949, through the 
office of the Auditor of Public Accounts in Springfield, as pre- 
sented by Mersinger and Allison of East St. Louis, Illinois, 
Certified Public Accountants. The auditors did their work 
during the month of August and their report was submitted 
to Springfield under date of November 23, 1949. It is a pleas- 
ure to report that this audit indicated that all records and 
accounts were in excellent condition.

3. Progress Report on Agriculture Situation 

On December 14, 1949, the committee selected by Mr. Vernon 
L. Nickell, Executive Secretary of the Board for Vocational 
Education, to visit the campus of Illinois State Normal Uni- 
versity and inspect the facilities for the education of teachers 
of vocational agriculture, met with all seven members of the 
committee present. The committee, aside from Dr. John R. 
Holbert of Bloomington serving as chairman, consisted of rep- 
resentatives from the Colleges of Agriculture of the University 
of Illinois, Michigan State College, and Purdue University, a 
representative of the Illinois Vocational Agriculture Associa- 
tion, a representative of the Grange, and a representative of 
the Illinois Agriculture Association. Mr. Nickell and Mr. J. 
E. Hill, Supervisor of Vocational Agriculture, met with the 
committee during the forenoon and the committee then spent 
the afternoon looking over facilities at the University Farm, 
as well as on the campus proper. They will have another meet- 
ing which is scheduled for February 16-17, 1950, at which time 
they will complete the gathering of information and, if ready 
at that time, will take action so as to make a report to the 
Illinois Board for Vocational Education. 

4. Loan of Staff Members 

As will be noted under Leaves of Absence recommended in this 
report, Dr. Richard G. Browne is being loaned to the Illinois 
School Problems Commission to serve as Research Director 
from February 1, 1950, until the opening of school next Sep- 
tember. At the present time Dr. Victor M. Houston is on a 
year's leave of absence to serve as Associate Director of the 
State High School Curriculum Study operating through the 
Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Dr. Chris 
A. De Young is likewise on leave for the entire year and until 
the opening of school next fall to serve with the American 
Council on Education and the National Education Association 
in Washington as Coordinator of the Commission on Occupied 
Areas. 

Mention is made of these three persons to indicate that the 
absence of such key individuals does set up certain problems 
on our campus but we are glad to have persons whose services 
are desired and we believe that the service they render will be 
of value to the organizations concerned and such contacts will 
be of value to them and to the University. 

X. SUMMARY 

Consideration and favorable action by the Teachers College Board is 
requested and will be appreciated on the following recommendations : 
1. Approval of the scholarship lists and transfer of funds cover- 
ing scholarships for the summer session and for the first semes- 
ter of the 1949-1950 school year.

At one of the recent Board meetings it was suggested that we 
find out the time devoted by each faculty member to teaching 
and related duties at the institutions where they are engaged as 
teachers. Due to the kindness of Dr. William C. Reavis, who sent 
us a copy of the "Gray Sheet" which is used at the University of 
Chicago, we were able to obtain the information listed below 
from each faculty member :

5. State Scholarships 

I hereby certify to the State Teachers College Board that the 
students with the addresses given in each case, as appearing on 
lists submitted to the Coordinator, in turn to be submitted to 
the Treasurer, were enrolled at the Northern Illinois State 
Teachers College for the fall quarter, 1949. There were 412 
names on the list. 

6. Students to Bring a D.P. Scholar 

Much interest and enthusiasm is being shown among members 
of the student body who plan to bring a D.P. student to the 
campus this spring. The project is being sponsored by the 
Human Relations Council working through the World Student 
Service Fund which in turn works through the refugee office. 

51 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

They must satisfy the state department and the International 
Relations Office. This student will be provided for from pri- 
vate sources in housing and employment opportunities as well 
as other essentials. The LR.O. brings the student to this 
country and the World Student Service Fund directs him 
where he is going. Northern students will be responsible for 
his well-being, making arrangements for his books and sup- 
plies, clothing, and part-time jobs. At present it is believed 
that this student will be Polish and he will probably arrive on 
the campus in time to register for the spring quarter. 



II. FACULTY 

1. Deaths 

a. It is with regret that we report the death of Mr. Swen F. 
Parson, professor emeritus, Department of Mathematics. 
Mr. Parson died on November 27 at the age of 88. We quote 
in part from the tribute paid him by Reverend Russell 
Lambert : "The minimum tribute we could offer is that he 
was a man of noble character, wide culture, deep experi- 
ence, appreciative spirit, a good father and friend, de- 
voted to intellectual interests and one with an uncommonly 
wide breadth of knowledge and depth of wisdom. He 
taught as much by his own nobility as by his formal in- 
struction. He was true to himself and therefore honest 
with others. His thoughtful words of commendation or 
helpful criticism were genuine and sincere. He had a love 
for and a patience with youth that were the natural evi- 
dence of his mission as a good teacher. His college associ- 
ates, both students and faculty, had an admiration and 
affection for him that were their own witnesses of his worth 
to campus and community." 

b. It is with regret that we report the death on December 17 
of Miss Ida S. Simonson, former head of the English De- 
partment. Miss Simonson served the college from 1902 
until her retirement in 1933 and had a large following 
among alumni all over the country. She died in Tucson, 
Arizona where she had gone to spend the winter months. 
She was 77 years old. 

2. Resignation 

Mr. Charles A. Ranous, assistant professor, Department of 
English, to accept a position at Fairleigh-Dickinson Col- 
lege, Rutherford, New Jersey, September, 1949, where he 
can complete work for his doctorate. 

52 



PROCEEDINGS 

3. New Appointments 

a. Mrs. Harriet Davy, faculty assistant, at a salary of $275 
per month beginning in September, replacing Mr. Ranous 
on a temporary basis for this college year only. Mrs. Davy 
has her bachelor's degree from Northwestern University 
and is a teacher of wide experience, having taught at the 
DeKalb Township High School for many years. She has 
taught at the college on previous occasions in similar sit- 
uations. 

b. Mr. Donald Fortunato, faculty assistant at a salary of 
$200 per month beginning in September. Mr. Fortunato 
is a graduate of Northern and assists with the work in the 
Men's Physical Education Department in sports and the 
intra-mural program. 

c. Mrs. Joy Lucille King, faculty assistant, at a salary of $75 
per month for the fall quarter, teaching one course in 
English. Mrs. King has her bachelor's degree from the 
University of Illinois and has had teaching experience in 
the teaching of rhetoric at the Navy Pier Division of the 
University. 

d. Mrs. Margaret Kohler, instructor, Department of Biolog- 
ical Sciences, at a salary of $350 per month until June 15, 
1950. Mrs. Kohler has served previously in the same capac- 
ity. She has her bachelor's degree from Eureka College 
and her master's degree from the Colorado State College 
of Education. 

e. Miss Christine Niekamp, college nurse with chief assign- 
ment at the McMurry Laboratory School at a salary of 
$275 per month for nine months beginning in September. 
Miss Niekamp has her bachelor's degree from Carthage 
College and her R.N. from the Blessing Hospital School of 
Nursing, Quincy, Illinois. She has had both hospital and 
nursing experience as well as college nursing experience. 

f. Mrs. Dorothy H. Peterson, faculty assistant, at a salary of 
$60 per month beginning September 30 to supervise music 
practice rooms and classrooms during the late afternoons 
and evening hours and on Saturday mornings. 

g. Because of an impending operation, it will be necessary for 
Miss Mary Jane Seed, assistant professor, Department of 
Home Economics, to be away from her duties at the college 
for much of the month of January and possibly through 
the spring quarter. 

We are therefore asking permission to employ Miss Gladys 
Adams to take over Miss Seed's duties until she is able to 

53 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

return and resume her full teaching load or until the end 
of the spring quarter. 

We would, therefore, like to employ Miss Gladys Adams, 
instructor, Department of Home Economics, at a salary of 
$350 per month beginning January 9, 1950 until Miss Seed 
returns to her duties or until the end of the spring quarter, 
1950. Miss Adams has her bachelor's and master's de- 
grees from Iowa State College. She has had high school 
teaching experience and served as county home economist 
and clothing specialist in the extension service at Iowa.

IV. THE ORGANIZATION. No Report. 

V. THE CURRICULUM 

Looking forward to the summer of 1951 at which time it is hoped 
Northern will start to offer graduate work, a committee of twelve 
has been formed, titled Graduate Study Committee. As the name 

56 



PROCEEDINGS 

implies, this committee will stucty the detail of establishing and 
offering a superior graduate school here at Northern. There has 
been a tremendous demand for graduate work in this part of the 
state, hardly a day going by without some one asking when it will 
be offered. This paragraph is inserted primarily to give the Board 
information to the effect that we are planning graduate work 
and at the proper time, will ask for Board action concerning it. 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

1. Adams Hall 

Adams Hall, women's new dormitory, has been in operation 
since September, and was formally dedicated on October 9 in 
a simple but impressive ceremony. Mr. Wirtz gave the pres- 
entation of the Hall which was accepted by Miss Carol Strand 
for the students and by the president, for the college. The 
dedication address was given by Mrs. Genevieve Lawless Rau- 
denbush, an alumna of this college. A reception was held fol- 
lowing the dedication service. 

2. Library 

The first steps have been taken for the erection of the library. 
These steps are very faltering ones and consist of moving the 
magnolia tree from the library site to a site nearer the Science 
Building. This location was chosen by the Biological Science 
Department. All of us at Northern are looking forward to the 
erection of this tremendously important building and hope 
that it can be used in the autumn of 1951. It is contemplated 
that the area now occupied by the library which will be va- 
cated when the new library is in use, will be devoted to a com- 
plete Department of Business Education. 

3. Men's Dormitory 

In line with permission obtained from the Board at the meet- 
ing in Springfield on November 21, representatives of Schaef- 
fer, Hooton, and Wilston Company were on the campus Tues- 
day, December 6 conferring with us regarding the men's 
dormitory. It is our thought to present preliminary plans 
at this board meeting. These plans will show our idea of 
having one unit of over 300 men instead of two separate units. 
The dormitory will be located immediately west of the football 
field and north and east of the McMurry Laboratory School. 
Mr. Chance S. Hill was on the campus at the same time the 
associate architects were here to confer with them regarding 
the location of this building. 

Campus Work Needed for Men's New Dormitory 

In Senate Bill 680, the following statement appears for the 
Northern Illinois State Teachers College : 

57 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

"For extension of steam, water, heat, sewer, gas and elec- 
trical distribution system and tunnel to proposed new 
dormitory or dormitories to be erected on an approved 
self liquidating basis, plans and specifications and all nec- 
essary charges incident to the completion of said work 
$1,000" 

This item was inserted in the bill to make it possible, if a con- 
tingent fund should develop, to supply the men's dormitory 
with a tunnel through which heat and utilities could be carried 
to the dormitory. It was also inserted to make possible the con- 
struction of sewers from this dormitory. A storm sewer is 
greatly needed to drain the dormitory area. The present 
storm sewer is so inadequate that surface water now backs up 
and into the McMurry School. The proposed sewer would be 
constructed to carry storm water from the entire dormitory 
area into the Kishwaukee River. 

Permission is requested of the Board to ask for plans and 
specifications for the development of this project. Funds 
necessary for this work are to be obtained from the contingent 
fund of Northern Illinois State Teachers College. This fund 
of $41,000 has been increased by $500,000 from the library. 

4. Football Field 

Work on the re-location of the football field and track has pro- 
gressed remarkably well. All of the rough work is done, so 
only final grading and seeding will be needed in the spring. 
It is our hope that we may use this field next spring for track 
and next autumn for football although our obvious problem 
is lack of bleachers. 

5. West Campus 

With the completion of the purchase of 55 1/3 acres located 
west of the main campus, to which we refer as "west campus," 
it has been necessary to have a survey made of it. This is 
being made now by C. K. Willett, consulting engineers, sur- 
veyors for the City of DeKalb. It is our thought to work in 
cooperation with the city in the planning of drainage of the 
area. If plans for the use of this area are completed before 
the next biennium, it will speed up greatly our progress to- 
ward a heating plant and a laboratory school, both greatly 
needed at Northern. 

6. Comnvittee Visit 

When the committee was on the campus on December 15, the 
morning was spent visiting the buildings and grounds. Par- 
ticular attention was given to the following : 

McMurry Laboratory School, men's new dormitory site, 

58 



PROCEEDINGS 

varsity athletic field, parking lot, men's gymnasium, 
crowded classroom conditions in the Administration Build- 
ing, incompleted portions of the Science Building, front 
porch area of Williston Hall, fireproofing Williston Hall, 
boulevard lighting on campus, main gate of campus at 
Lincoln Highway. 

7. The Lor ado Taft Field Camp 

Lorado Taft, sculptor, professional lecturer at the University 
of Chicago and the Art Institute in Chicago, was born in Elm- 
wood, Illinois in 1860. He died in 1936. He is famous in Illi- 
nois for his statue of Black Hawk and at the University of 
Illinois for his Alma Mater statue. Educated at the Universi- 
ties of Illinois and Colorado, he also studied in Paris and was 
awarded the degree of Doctor of Letters. 

The Lorado Taft "art colony" is the area immediately north of 
the Black Hawk Monument (Lowden State Park) 2 miles 
north of Oregon, Illinois on the east bank of the Rock River — 
36 miles from DeKalb. The property consists of about 75 
acres of high, hilly, wooded land overlooking the Rock River. 
There are ten houses in all degrees of disrepair. Three of these 
buildings have native stone walls and the others are of wood. 

At the last board meeting, permission was granted to investi- 
gate this area with the view in mind of obtaining it perma- 
nently from the Division of Parks and Memorials so that it 
could be « used by the college as a field camp to make possible 
the following major educational objectives : 

1. To use nature as a textbook and laboratory for practical 
class work in many courses. For example, it could be used 
to great advantage for art, biology, home economics, indus- 
trial arts, earth science, health, physical science, mathe- 
matics, music, physical education for men and women, so- 
cial science, and other departments. 

2. To supply new and important experiences for student 
teachers who are on the job full time and for in-service 
teachers on the elementary, high school, and college levels. 

3. To give an opportunity for upper elementary and high 
school students to study nature in the field. This is ex- 
tremely important for children of urban areas and applies 
particularly to northern Illinois. 

Field experiences by their very nature tend to develop 
democratic processes and a great ability to live with each 
other. 

On Thursday, December 15, a committee consisting of the fol- 
lowing persons — Director Puffer, Mr. Bohrer, Dr. Reavis, with 

59 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Mr. Lanphier also attending, met at the college and in the 
afternoon visited the Lorado Taft field camp area. Mr. Wirtz, 
who had lunch with the committee, did not visit the area at 
this time, having been there just before the November board 
meeting. After carefully inspecting the proposed camp, it 
was decided to ask permission of the board for this committee 
to meet with Superintendent Ray Hubbs and Director Charles 
P. Casey in the very near future to start the process of ironing 
out the difficulties of transferring the Lorado Taft area from 
the Department of Public Works and Buildings to the Northern 
Illinois State Teachers College. Accordingly, permission is 
asked of the Board to proceed with this next step.

TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

At the request of the DeKalb Township High School Board of 
Education, a new agreement was made between the college and 
the high school board, regarding the manner in which the high 
school staff members under whom our students do their student 
teaching, are compensated. The agreement is as follows : 

The compensation due the high school teachers is paid directly 
to the school board and the high school board, in turn, adds the 
compensation to the salary paid the high school teacher. This 
means that the high school teachers now receive one salary check 
each month. In the past they received two salary checks — one 
from the high school board and the other from the college. The 
board asked for this agreement so that the earnings of the teach- 
ers in this manner are increased, meaning that they receive addi- 
tional benefits under the pension plan operated in their behalf. 

X. SUMMARY 

9. Approval of the new agreement between the high school board 
and the college for payment of high school critic teachers. 



MEETING OF STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Hotel Morrison, Chicago, Illinois 

January 9, 1950, 9:00 A. M. 

The regularly scheduled meeting of the Teachers College Board 
and the college Presidents was held in the Walnut Room of the 
Hotel Morrison, Chicago, Illinois. The meeting convened at 9 :00 A. M. 
Noble J. Puffer, Director of the Department of Registration and 
Education and Chairman of the Board, presided. 

Chairman Puffer called the meeting to order and roll call was 
taken. 

The following members were present : 

Mr. Noble J. Puffer, Chairman 

Mr. Joseph F. Bohrer 

Dr. Preston Bradley 

Mr. Richard P. Dunn 

Mr. Russell L. Guin 

Mr. Ira M. Means 

Mrs. Helen Rose Pegelow 

Dr. William C. Reavis 

Mr. Lewis M. Walker 

Mr. William W. Wirtz

PROCEEDINGS 

The following member was absent : 

Mr. Vernon L. Nickell, Secretary 

Also present were : 

Dr. Robert G. Buzzard, President 
Eastern Illinois State College 

Dr. R. W. Fairchild, President 
Illinois State Normal University 

Dr. Frank A. Beu, President 
Western Illinois State College 

Dr. Leslie A. Holmes, President 
Northern Illinois State Teachers College 

Mr. Charles G. Lanphier, Co-ordinator 
Department of Registration and Education 
Springfield, Illinois 

Chairman Puffer opened the first meeting of the Teachers Col- 
lege Board for the year 1950 by expressing his appreciation to the 
members of the Board and Presidents for their fine service during 
the year 1949, and hoped that they had enjoyed it as much as he did. 
He wished that the year 1950 would be a still more enjoyable one 
for all concerned. 

The first matter of business before the Board was the approval 
of, corrections, or additions to the minutes of the meeting of 
November 21, 1949. 

Mr. Dunn moved that the minutes be approved as submitted. 
The motion was seconded by Mr. Guin, and unanimously carried. 

At the last meeting of the Teachers College Board, Chairman 
Puffer informed the Board that he was going to Washington as a 
representative of the Governor, to have a conference with Commis- 
sioner McGrath to ascertain if he will make a study of the state sup- 
ported teachers colleges and universities in Illinois, dealing only 
with the administration of these schools. 

Chairman Puffer reported that Dr. John Dale Russell would 
undertake the survey. He expects to have the staff work completed 
by July 1st. The report will then be published and put in the hands 
of the Governor, this Board, the University of Illinois, and Southern 
Illinois University. 

Chairman Puffer reported that while in Washington he hap- 
pened by the office of the Department of Vocational Education, and 
dropped in to see if he could obtain some information regarding the 
training of teachers of vocational agriculture under the Smith- 
Hughes program at Illinois State Normal University. 

63 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Chairman Puffer reported that he had asked Mr. Gregory, to 
whom he talked, if there had been any action by any one to retard 
the approval of this program. The answer he received was a definite 
NO. It thus appears that the approval of this program is contingent 
upon the recommendations of the Evaluating Committee appointed by 
Mr. Nickell for the Board of Vocational Education. 

Dr. Fairchild reported that this Evaluating Committee had had 
its first in a series of meetings, to determine the qualifications of the 
University to train teachers of vocational agriculture, and that the 
next meeting was scheduled for February 16th and 17th, 1950. 

POLICY OF TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD- 
UNIVERSITY RETIREMENT SYSTEM 

At the last meeting of the Board Mr. Lanphier, Co-ordinator, 
had presented a statement outlining regulations for participation 
in the University Retirement System. The matter was tabled until 
this meeting pending receipt of a letter of approval from the Uni- 
versity Retirement System. Such a letter of approval was received 
and copies sent to all Board Members, Presidents, and Business 
Managers. In view of this Mr. Guin moved that the "Statement of 
Policy" be approved. The motion was seconded by Mr. Dunn, the 
roll was called and the vote was as follows : 

Mr. Bohrer, yea 
Dr. Bradley, yea 
Mr. Dunn, yea 
Mr. Guin, yea 
Mr. Means, yea 
Mr. Nickell, absent 
Mrs. Pegelow, yea 
Mr. Puffer, yea 
Dr. Reavis, yea 
Mr. Walker, yea 
Mr. Wirtz, yea 

The motion was unanimously carried and the statement is as follows : 

In the LTniversity Retirement System of Illinois there are four (4) 
classifications as accepted by the Teachers College Board : 

STANDARD 
SUB-STANDARD 
NONACCEPTABLE 
NONEMPLOYABLE 

First it must be clearly and definitely understood that it is the 
duty of the Health Officer of the university or college to classify the 
risk; the University Retirement System has no authority to reject 

64 



PROCEEDINGS 

an applicant for participation in the--, University Retirement System 
after the Health Officer has classified the applicant and the applica- 
tion has been approved by the President of the university or college. 

A STANDARD rating means that the applicant passes a physi- 
cal examination that would be satisfactory to a life insurance company. 

Applicants who are classified as SUB-STANDARD are those 
whose physical examination does not permit classification as 
STANDARD, but who, in the opinion of the Health Officer, would 
be a satisfactory risk. 

It has been agreed with the University Retirement System that 
if an applicant passes a physical examination whereby the applicant 
can be considered only as a NONACCEPTABLE risk, the President 
of the university or college must write the University Retirement 
System giving the reasons why the applicant should be employed 
and participate in the Retirement System, sending copy of the letter 
to the Chairman of the State Teachers College Board. 

NONACCEPTABLE applicants should be approved by the Presi- 
dent of the university or college only in rare cases where, in the 
opinion of the President, the "good of the school" outweighs the 
possible or probable liability on the University Retirement System. 

Applicants classified as NONEMPLOYABLE cannot be em- 
ployed even on a temporary basis. 

All applicants who are classified by the Health Officer and certi- 
fied by the President of the university or college under the SUB- 
STANDARD or NONACCEPTABLE rating are limited in their 
sick or death benefits for a period of five (5) years providing the 
sickness or death is the result of some trouble which is found at the 
time of the physical examination. At the end of the five (5) years 
those who have been classified and accepted as SUB-STANDARD or 
NONACCEPTABLE have no restrictions either as to sickness or 
death benefits. 

No applicant should be put on the pay roll until the Health 
Officer has completed the examination, including chest pictures and 
a blood analysis, and his classification has been established by the 
Health Officer, approved by the President of the university or col- 
lege, and certified to the Retirement System. 

It will probably be that a few days or maybe a week will inter- 
vene between the date of the physical examination and the classifica- 
tion by the Health Officer of the respective institution. 

Call attention that if any new employee is put on the pay roll 
and a deduction is made for the Retirement System before said em- 
ployee has been classified, approved by the President and certified to 
the University Retirement System, the Retirement System is liable. 
Therefore, it is of the greatest importance that no deduction for the 

65 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Retirement System is made until the applicant has been classified by 
the Health Officer, approved by the President of the university or 
college, and certified to the University Retirement System. 

In case an applicant is not classified by the Health Officer and 
approved by the President within a week after the physical examina- 
tion, such applicant shall automatically be placed on the pay roll for 
a period of thirty (30) days as a temporary employee, awaiting classi- 
fication by the Health Officer of the respective institution and ap- 
proval by the President. In such cases no deduction will be made for 
the Retirement System. To be explicit, no deduction will be made on 
any new employee until the classification has been made and ap- 
proved, and this classification must be completed within the said 
thirty (30) day period, otherwise such applicant shall be automatically 
nonemployable. 

Again please bear in mind that the University Retirement Sys- 
tem, by law, must accept any applicant approved by the President 
of the university or college and who has certified the applicant for 
participation in the University Retirement System.

NAMING OF ADMINISTRATION BUILDING AT EASTERN 

Chairman Puffer read a letter he had received from Mrs. R. C. 
Hampton, Secretary of the Eastern Illinois State College Alumni 
Association, petitioning the Teachers College Board to name this 
building in honor of Dr. L. C. Lord. 

Dr. Buzzard was asked to give his comments on the matter. He 
stated that he had no objection to the renaming of this building, but 
he felt that the name of "Old Main" had become such a tradition 
that it would be a difficult thing to acquire the habit of referring to 
this building as anything but "Old Main." 

He said it was his intention, sometime in the near future, to 
bring to the Board the matter of naming the proposed dormitories in 
honor of Dr. Lord. He felt that this would be an even greater honor 
because this is the field in which Dr. Lord pioneered. 

After a thorough discussion of the matter, Mr. Guin moved that 
the Chairman be directed to indicate that : "it is the policy of the 
Teachers College Board to retain the names of buildings already 
named, but that the Board will consider, in the immediate future, 
the naming of a new building at Eastern Illinois State College in 
honor of Dr. Lord." The motion was seconded by Mr. Dunn and

Mr. Joseph Booton and Mr. E. M. Nedved, representing the Division 
of Architecture and Engineering ; Mr. Archie Schaeff er and Mr. Phil 
Hooton, representing the firm of Schaeffer, Hooton and Wilson, 
Architects; and Mr. R. C. Ashton of the Bureau of Community 
Facilities of the United States Government, were also present. 

There was some question as to the proper procedure for the 
approval of preliminary and final plans for self -liquidating projects. 

68 



PROCEEDINGS 

After a thorough discussion, Mr. Bohrer moved that where 
changes are made, subject to the approval of the State Architect's 
office, in preliminary plans already approved by the Board, that the 
revised plans are then to be resubmitted to the Board for final ap- 
proval before working plans are drawn up, from which bids are to 
be received. The motion was seconded by Mr. Wirtz and unanimously 
carried. 

Mr. Dunn advised that at the meeting of the Self-Liquidating 
Committee of the Teachers College Board held on Wednesday, Novem- 
ber 2nd, 1949 at Illinois State Normal University they (the Committee) 
had approved the final preliminary plans with the changes suggested by 
the University officials, and had directed the architects, Schaeffer and 
Hooton, to prepare final plans for the erection of two dormitories to 
house 308 persons on the campus of Illinois State Normal University. 

Mr. Dunn then moved that the action of the Self -Liquidating 
Committee, as reported in the minutes of their meeting held on 
Wednesday, November 2nd, be approved by the Teachers College 
Board, subject to the approval of the State Architect's office. The 
motion was seconded by Mr. Bohrer and unanimously carried. 

The next item for discussion was the matter pertaining to fire 
alarm systems in the self-liquidating projects ; specifically the dormi- 
tories now in the final planning state at Illinois State Normal 
University. 

After a thorough discussion on the various types of fire alarm 
systems, Mr. Dunn moved that the Teachers College Board direct 
Schaeffer and Hooton, Architects, to specify the installation of a 
break-glass fire alarm system, to be connected up with the local Fire 
Department, and the 2% gallon fire extinguisher equipment in each 
of the self -liquidating dormitories, subject to the approval of the State 
Fire Marshal's office. The motion was seconded by Mr. Walker and 
unanimously carried. 

Mr. Hammond recommended and requested the Board's approval 
of the employment of Mr. Clarence W. Doll as Associate Architect for 
the planning of the Home Management House at Eastern Illinois 
State College. 

Mr. Walker moved that Mr. Clarence W. Doll be employed as 
Associate Architect for the planning of the Home Management House 
at Eastern Illinois State College. The motion was seconded by Mrs. 
Pegelow and unanimously carried. 

At the request of Mr. Hammond, Mr. R. C. Ashton of the Bureau 
of Community Facilities of the United States Government appeared 
before the Board and spoke at some length on Public Law 352, which 
provides for advance planning of public works exclusive of housing. 
He explained the provisions of this law and the requirements that 
must be met to benefit by it. 

A discussion regarding the site for the proposed dormitories at 
Eastern followed. 

69 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

A master plan showing the existing buildings and the proposed 
buildings was shown by the representatives of the Division of 
Architecture and Engineering. 

At the time this master plan was prepared, the proposed dormi- 
tories for women were located in one area and the dormitories for 
men in another area, as recommended by the Division of Architecture 
and Engineering. The Administration of the school would now like 
to change this plan. 

After considerable discussion on the matter, Mr. Dunn moved 
that we follow the respective master plan of each of the four State 
Teachers Universities and Colleges for the location of men's and 
women's dormitories. The motion was seconded by Mr. Bohrer, the 
roll was called, and the vote w r as as follows : 

Mr. Bohrer, yea 
Dr. Bradley, absent 
Mr. Dunn, yea 
Mr. Guin, yea 
Mr. Means, yea 
Mr. Nickell, absent 
Mrs. Pegelow, yea 
Mr. Puffer, yea 
Dr. Reavis, yea 
Mr. Walker, yea 
Mr. Wirtz, yea 

The motion was unanimously carried. 

Mr. Bohrer moved that Barcus-Kindred and Company be re- 
quested to submit to the individual Board members their financial 
data with reference to the self-liquidating Student Union Building 
at Illinois State Normal University before the March meeting of the 
Teachers College Board. The motion was seconded by Mr. Wirtz and 
unanimously carried. 

There being no further business before the Board Mr. Means 
moved that the meeting be adjourned until the next meeting, which 
is scheduled for February 20, 1950, in Springfield, Illinois. Th ( e 
motion was seconded by Mrs. Pegelow and unanimously carried. 

Noble J. Puffer, Chairman 
Vernon L. Nickell, Secretary 

February 10, 1950 

A special meeting of the Presidents of the four State Teachers 
Universities and Colleges together with Director Puffer was held in 
Director Puffer's office on Tuesday afternoon, February 7, at 1 :30 P. M. 

The purpose of this meeting was the discussion of the critical 
coal situation. 

70 



PROCEEDINGS 

Director Puffer informed all that he had advice that no more 
coal could be routed to any of the teachers colleges ; it must go to 
institutions under the Department of Public Welfare and the Depart- 
ment of Public Safety ; that is, state hospitals, prisons, etc. 

Figures had been supplied by each school as to the number of 
tons on hand, shipments enroute, consumption per day, number of 
days they could run by heating the buildings as usual, and the num- 
ber of days they could run by cutting the heat to 50% of normal. 
These figures, as of February 6, 1950, are as follows : 

ILLINOIS STATE NORMAL UNIVERSITY, NORMAL, ILLINOIS 

On Hand 200 tons 

Enroute 50 tons 

Consumption Per Day 25-30 tons 

Days Can Run (Normal) 8-10 days 

Days Can Run (Reducing) 18-20 days 

EASTERN ILLINOIS STATE COLLEGE, 
CHARLESTON, ILLINOIS 

On Hand 190 tons 

Enroute 

Consumption Per Day 19 tons 

Days Can Run (Normally) 10 days 

Days Can Run (Reducing) 18-20 days 

WESTERN ILLINOIS STATE COLLEGE, MACOMB, ILLINOIS 

On Hand 100 tons 

Enroute 50 tons 

Consumption Per Day 15-20 tons 

Days Can Run (Normally) 9-11 days 

Days Can Run (Reducing) 18-23 days 

NORTHERN ILLINOIS STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE, 
DE KALB, ILLINOIS 

On Hand 100 tons 

Enroute 50 tons 

Consumption Per Day 20-25 tons 

Days Can Run (Normally) 4-6 days 

Days Can Run (Reducing) 1-12 days 

It was the consensus of opinion that the number of days each 
school could run normally was so low that it was advisable to shut 
down. At Northern Illinois State Teachers College, where their sup- 
ply is lower than any of the other schools, it was decided that they 
should shut down on Wednesday, February 8, 1950, and all the other 
three schools to shut down on Friday, February 10, 1950, all to 
convene on Monday, February 27, 1950, if coal is available.

February 20, 1950, 9:15 A.M. 

The regularly scheduled meeting of the Teachers College Board 
and the college Presidents was held in Director Puffer's office, Capitol 
Building, Springfield, Illinois. The meeting convened at 9 :15 A. M.

taken. 

The following members were present :

Dr. Vernon L. Nickell, Secretary 

Mr. Joseph F. Bohrer 

Mr. Richard F. Dunn 

Mr. Ira M. Means 

Mrs. Helen Rose Pegelow

Northern Illinois State Teachers College 

Mr. Charles G. Lanphier, Co-ordinator 
Department of Registration and Education 
Springfield, Illinois 

Chairman Puffer opened the meeting by reviewing for the other 
members of the Board the special meeting he called with the Presi- 
dents because of the critical coal situation. He also read to them the 
minutes which were recorded of said meeting. 

72 



PROCEEDINGS 

At the above-mentioned meeting it was requested that the Presi- 
dents bring information to this meeting regarding their current coal 
supply. 

Dr. Buzzard reporting for Eastern advised that they have 100 
tons or more on hand, are using about nine tons a day, and running 
on the reduced load will be able to run for about ten days or two weeks. 

Dr. Fairchild reporting for Normal advised that they have about 
200 tons on hand, are using about ten tons and possibly twelve tons 
a day, (depending on the weather), and running on the reduced load 
will be able to operate for approximately twenty days. 

Dr. Beu reporting for Western advised that on February 18 they 
had only twenty-one tons on hand, but that on February 15 they had 
made a confirmatory requisition to the Bruketta Company for 100 
tons of coal to be delivered within the next ten days. 

Dr. Holmes reporting for Northern advised that they have enough 
coal to run only through Thursday, February 23, and are using about 
six tons daily. 

Further discussion of the coal situation continued, and Mr. Dunn 
asked what the current situation was as of today with respect to the 
possibility of diverting some coal to the Teachers Colleges to enable 
them to resume classes on February 27. 

Since no one in the group could answer Mr. Dunn's question, it 
was the unanimous feeling that Mr. McKinney, State Purchasing 
Agent, be requested to come and sit in on the meeting, and perhaps 
answer some questions which were in the minds of the Board mem- 
bers and Presidents. 

When Mr. McKinney arrived he was asked what the possibility 
was of diverting enough coal to get the schools opened as soon as 
the strike was over. He said it was possible to supply the schools with 
coal, and that it would be only a matter of two or three days after 
the miners went back to work, providing they went back to work 
this week. 

Mr. McKinney was then asked if his division would approve of 
the schools buying coal locally. He advised they (Central Purchasing) 
would buy coal any place they could to get the schools opened. 

The Board thanked Mr. McKinney for giving his time to answer 
the questions presented. 

Mr. Bohrer moved that provided the general coal strike has then 
ended, the respective Presidents may open school on February 27 or 
at any time thereafter, when, in their judgment, they have or can 
obtain sufficient coal. The motion was seconded by Mr. Wirtz and 
unanimously carried. 

73 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Mr. Means moved that Mr. Bohrer, Mr. Dunn, and Mr. Wirtz be 
requested to draft a resolution and send it to the proper authorities 
in Washington deploring the condition of this State and Nation as 
a result of the coal strike. The motion was seconded by Mrs. Pegelow 
and unanimously carried. The resolution is as follows : 

Be It Resolved by the Teachers College Board of the 
State of Illinois that we deplore the fact that conditions in 
this State and Nation have reached a situation where the 
ordinary and fundamental functions of public education, in 
time of peace, have been curtailed, crippled and discontinued 
because of an impasse which has developed between the 
miners, operators and government in the basic coal industry 
of the country ; and, 

Be It Further Resolved that we urge our public officials 
and all concerned, regardless of party affiliation, to merge 
their efforts not only to bring an end to this present situation, 
but provide some vehicle which will prevent such catastro- 
phies in the future in this or any other basic industry. 

Mr. Dunn presented and moved the adoption of the foregoing 
resolution. The motion was seconded by Mr. Wirtz and unanimously 
carried. 

The next matter of business before the Board was the approval 
of, corrections, or additions to the minutes of the meeting of 
January 9, 1950. 

Mr. Dunn moved that the minutes be approved as submitted. 
The motion was seconded by Mr. Means and unanimously carried. 

HOLIDAYS 

The matter of holidays for academic employees as well as non- 
academic employees was discussed in detail. 

Mr. Bohrer moved that the Teachers College Board go on record 
as favoring the present operating schedule of the colleges as regard 
to the granting of holidays to academic employees. The motion was 
seconded by Mr. Dunn. 

More discussion followed and Mr. Dunn offered as a substitute 
motion the following : 

Mr. Dunn moved that the entire matter be tabled. The motion 
was seconded by Mr. Bohrer. 

Still more discussion followed and Dr. Reavis moved that the 
Presidents be instructed to go ahead and have their catalogs printed 
on the basis of the action of the Teachers College Board on January 
20, 1947, and with the additional date of November 11. The motion

5. November, Thanksgiving 

6. December 25, Christmas 

7. Illinois Education Association, Division Meeting Day 

8. Regular vacations as presented in the projected

Mr. Nickell suggested that we ask the Attorney General for an 
opinion to find out his interpretation as to how this matter of statutory 
holidays affects the various levels of education. 

Chairman Puffer appointed Mr. Nickell and himself as a com- 
mittee to obtain an Attorney General's opinion and report to the 
Board at its next meeting. 

SUGGESTED NAME OF ATHLETIC AREA AT WESTERN 

The matter of naming the Athletic Area at Western was discussed 
briefly at the January 9 meeting with the recommendation that the 
matter be placed in the hands of the Advisory Committee for Western 
with the request that they report their recommendations at this the 
February 20 meeting. 

Mr. Means, Chairman of the Advisory Committee for Western, 
advised that the matter had been referred to the Alumni, Faculty 
and Student Body of Western for consideration and vote, and that 
now the recommendation of the Advisory Committee is that the field 
should be named the "Hanson Field." 

Since no final action can be taken by the Board before the suc- 
ceeding meeting of the Board following the report and recommenda- 
tion of the Advisory Committee, the matter is being placed on the 
agenda for the meeting on March 27, 1950. 

SUGGESTED NAME OF LIBRARY BUILDING AT NORTHERN 

Following the procedure of the Teachers College Board this mat- 
ter was referred to the Advisory Committee for Northern. 

Mr. Wirtz, Chairman of the Advisory Committee for Northern, 
reported that the matter was submitted to the Alumni, Faculty and 
Student Body to ascertain their wishes. 

After the aforementioned groups had been polled, it was the 
recommendation of the Committee that the library building be called 
the "Swen Franklin Parson Library." The Committee further recom- 

75 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

mended that the browsing room in the library be called the "Ida 
Simonson Room," and the auditorium be named the "Eva McMahon 
Auditorium." 

No final action was taken by the Board on this matter, but it is 
being placed on the agenda for the meeting on March 27, 1950. 



REPORT OF SECRETARY NICKELL 

Secretary Nickell reported on a matter that had been brought 
to his attention regarding the training of Industrial Arts Instructors 
for rehabilitation work. 

Secretary Nickell informed the Board that he was not requesting 
any action on the part of the Board at this time, but merely presented 
the matter for consideration and discussion at a later date. 



REPORT OF POLICY COMMITTEE 

Dr. Reavis, Chairman of the Policy Committee of the Teachers 
College Board, reported that the Committee had decided they would 
like to send an inquiry to all members of the faculty, the administra- 
tive officials, and non-academic supervisors of the four State Teachers 
Colleges to give them an opportunity to express themselves and give 
suggestions for improving the administration of their particular 1 
school. 

Dr. Reavis moved that the Teachers College Board approve the 
report of the Policy Committee, and the mailing of inquiries to all 
faculty members, administrative officials, and non-academic super- 
visors. The motion was seconded by Mr. Bohrer and unanimously 
carried. 

At the last meeting of the Teachers College Board Mr. R. C. 
Ashton of the Bureau of Community Facilities of the United States 
Government appeared before the Board and discussed Public Law 352. 

It was the opinion of the Board at that time that if any school 
was interested, they should contact Mr. Ashton. 

Mr. Dunn advised that he had received a letter from Dr. Holmes 
requesting that he check the accompanying contract between the 
Community Facilities Services and Northern. 

Mr. Dunn advised that he had checked the contract and found 
it in satisfactory order, and presented it for signature by the 
Chairman and Secretary. He then moved the approval of the re- 
quest from Northern for this advance planning under Public Law 
352. The motion was seconded by Mr. Bohrer and unanimously carried.

above the point of deterioration provided that the outside tempera- 
ture does not fall below 20°. On February 15, we made a con- 
firmatory requisition to the Bruketta Company, Farmington, for

The college calendar for 1950-51 is submitted as a supplement 
to this report. 

V. CURRICULUM (No report) 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

A. The tentative date of Saturday, May 20th, is set for the 
dedication of the Mary Josephine Booth Library building. 
Plans for structural completion and installation of equipment,

furniture, carpets and drapes makes this date appear a feasible 
one. More details will be furnished members of the Board as 
plans progress. 

B. Study of plans for the dormitories and Home Management 
Houses are continuing. Due to the cancellation of a meeting 
of the Advisory Committee on campus, a detailed report can- 
not be submitted. 

VII. AUXILIARY ENTERPRISES (No report) 

VIII. STUDENT LIFE 

A. Eastern is proud to report that the college basketball team, 
for the second consecutive year, represented the State of 
Illinois in the 1950 National Association of Intercollegiate 
Basketball Tournament at Kansas City, Missouri, by reason 
of winning the play-off tournament between Northern, West- 
ern, Millikin, and Eastern. The season record compiles twenty- 
one victories and five defeats. 

B. With equal or even greater pride the college mentions the 
Medallist rating given The Eastern State News by the Colum- 
bia University Scholastic Press Association at the recent an- 
nual meeting in New York. This is the fourteenth time the 
college paper has won this coveted rating, and the thirteenth 
consecutive year for such an achievement; a record not 
equalled by any similar institution. 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

A. Addition to (G. Substitute Faculty) 

4. Henry G. Miller, A.M., Substitute Instructor in Physical 
Education for Men, vice Gilbert T. Carson on disability 
leave, continued for the year 1950-51, at a salary of $425.00 
per month. 

B. The three-week shutdown, because of the coal shortage, cost 
a loss of twelve recitations because each course recites four 
times per week. Subtracting the two holidays of February 13 
and February 22, finds us only ten recitations short. Instead 
of closing the Winter Quarter on March 10, as scheduled by 
our regular calendar, we shall close on Thursday, March 23rd. 
We shall hold regular classes on Saturday, March 11, through 
the regular week March 13-17, on Saturday, March 18, and 
the four days of March 20-23. This gives us eleven days of 
extra work in which to make up the ten recitations missed 
and complete in full the requirements of the Winter Quarter. 
We shall begin the Spring Quarter without registration day 
on March 24, hold classes on Saturday, March 25, and extend 
the college year June 7-8-9, thus ending on Friday, June 9,

instead of on June 6. By using float hours and the brief 
spring holiday, we will thus complete the Spring Quarter 
with only one day short.

It is interesting to note that the official enrollment of the 
second semester of 2255 is only 183 short of the enrollment 
of the first semester and is 208 more than the second semester 
enrollment of a year ago. The holding power of the University 
continues to be very good especially when it is known that 
probably the largest number of seniors in the history of the 
school completed work for graduation at the end of the first 
semester. Interest in teacher education for the school year be- 
ginning next September appears to be unusually good in both 
quantity and quality. Staff members report that they have 
seldom seen as much interest, on the part of highly qualified 
students, in teacher education. 

2. Extension, Second Semester, 1949-1950 

Enrollment in extension courses, the departmental courses 
offered, the centers, and the instructors are here presented

Total Enrollment Second Semester, 1949-1950 488 

Total Enrollment First Semester, 1949-1950 424 

Total for 1949-1950 School Year 912 

Total for 1948-1949 School Year 739 

The enrollment of 488 in the extension classes during the 
current semester is apparently the largest second semester 
enrollment on record. Interest in this work continues beyond 
the possibility of supplying instructors. The size of the cam- 
pus enrollment has made it impossible to have teachers avail- 
able to meet needs in the field. 

3. Scholarships Certified 

a. As a matter of record, certification is here made to the 
Teachers College Board that a list of persons with addresses 
given in each case and the amount of money from which 
they have been exempted under the State Scholarship Law, 
has been submitted for the second semester of the 1949- 
1950 school year to the Chairman of the Teachers College 
Board, through the Coordinator of the State Teachers 
Colleges. This list with the approval of the Chairman and 
Secretary of the Teachers College Board provides the trans- 
fer of funds by the State Treasurer from the General 
Revenue Account to the Income Fund of Illinois State 
Normal University. Recognition of this transfer should be 
included in Board action at this time. 

II. FACULTY 
1. Deaths 

a. Mr. Herman H. Schroeder, Dean Emeritus of the Uni- 
versity, died January 27, 1950. With close to sixty years 
of teaching experience and having been on the faculty of

Dean from 1928 to August 1943 when he retired, Mr. 
Schroeder made an exceedingly valuable contribution to

dent of higher education especially in the field of philoso- 
phy, Mr. Schroeder left an imprint upon his colleagues and

IV. THE ORGANIZATION 

1. Plan for Recovering Lost "Coal Vacation" Time 

Although Illinois State Normal University plans to make up 
as much time as possible of that which was lost during the 
recent enforced vacation, there is merit in the belief that if 
all of this time can not be regained, students and faculty should 
not be held responsible since the emergency came about as a 
result of matters beyond their control. 

a. It is proposed to make up six days of the seventeen lost by 
using five of the six days of spring vacation, leaving only 
Good Friday as a holiday, and using Memorial Day as the 
sixth day. 

b. Many graduate and other courses meeting late afternoons, 
evenings and Saturdays are having additional meetings or 
adding to the length of the periods. This is likewise true 
of extension courses off campus, although many of these 
continued to meet regularly during the enforced vacation. 

c. Planning by department groups has produced ways of 
making up part of the work through an intensive program 
that has been carefully developed. 



115 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

d. It is proposed to attempt the lengthening of class periods 
so as to make up approximately one day each week by 
having periods of sixty rather than fifty minutes. 
This would call for operating upon the regular summer 
session program of sixty minutes per class period. The use 
of this plan would add fifty minutes each week or the 
equivalent of a class period and during the last six weeks 
of the semester would produce six more days. 

On the above basis, there would be six days from regular 
vacation periods, six additional days from lengthened class 
periods, and five days from an intensive program or extra 
periods that have already been worked out. The use of Satur- 
days will not work on our semester plan of classes with three 
and two semester hours, due to difficulty in scheduling days 
with irregular student class loads. Further, such a very large 
number of students work on Saturdays that attempting such 
a program would result in some persons finding it necessary 
to withdraw from school and still further a number of students 
and faculty are already scheduled for Saturday classes as a 
part of their regular program. It is impossible to use a fifth 
day in the week such as may be possible on the quarter sys- 
tem with classes meeting four days a week. The classes of three 
and two hours dovetail to form an entire week on the semester 
plan. 

V. THE CURRICULUM 

No report. 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 
1. Major Repairs 

a. Roofs. Approval has been given bids obtained and contracts 
awarded for new roofs on McCormick Gymnasium and 
Cook Hall. Extensive repairs will be made to the roof of the 
Metcalf Elementary School. These buildings have needed 
such repairs for considerable time and with the release of 
money originally placed in the budget for this biennium, 
these repairs are possible. 

b. Lighting. For considerable time there has been need for 
re-wiring of the Metcalf Elementary School building in 
order to permit more extensive and better lighting. The 
present wiring would not carry a load that would permit 
adequate lighting. On March 28, the Division of Archi- 
tecture and Engineering is sending an engineer to survey 
the situation and to prepare specifications with the idea 
that this important work be undertaken immediately. It is 

116 



PROCEEDINGS 

hoped that this entire lighting project may be completed 
within the amount of the $30,000 appropriated. 

c. Plumbing. During the year and up to and including the 
present time, a great deal of change in plumbing in the 
washrooms at Fell Hall (women's residence) and the shower 
rooms in Cook Hall has taken place. The improvement 
of these conditions will relieve the University of much dif- 
ficulty with loose plastering, repainting jobs, and other 
damaging conditions. 

d. Boilers. Very extensive repairs were made on all four of 
the boilers in the heating plant. Part of this was made 
possible by use of an emergency fund and part of it came 
from the regular Contractual Account. 

e. Water Proofing. A considerable amount of money has been 
spent on trying to reduce the moisture in the basement of 
North Hall. A very extensive amount of water proofing has 
been done on these walls with the hope that plaster will 
not moisten and drop off and that the walls can be finished 
and painted in a presentable style. 

The foregoing repairs total a little over $70,000.00 and are 
illustrative of the nature and extent of repairs required in a 
school as old as Illinois State Normal University. 

2. New Construction in Process 

a. Administration Building. The Administration Building is 
nearing completion and should be ready for occupancy 
by May 15. It is hoped to call for bids on the furniture, 
furnishings, and special equipment by April 21 and with 
thirty-day delivery promised on ninety-eight percent of 
such materials, it is hoped that the shift of offices may be 
made before the end of May so that the commencement 
season and the opening of the summer session will find the 
building in complete operation. The next meeting of the 
Teachers College Board that will be scheduled for the 
campus at Illinois State Normal University should find the 
Board Room on the third floor of the Administration 
Building available for use. 

b. Special Education Building. Excellent progress is being 
made on the Special Education Building and it is ex- 
pected that it will be ready for occupancy when school 
opens in September of this year. A schedule of furniture, 
furnishings, and special equipment is being prepared to 
give ample time for such installation by next September. 
Plans for occupancy of the east wing by the University 

117 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Health Service and the provision of necessary special 
equipment are also included in the time schedule for 
opening in September. 

c. Mechanical Services. As will be observed at the time of this 
Board meeting, the campus appears to be over-run with 
moles of a large size, or better adapted to trench warfare. 
This is the result of the provision of a new underground 
distribution system of mechanical services. Telephone lines, 
clock system, and electrical wiring will now be underground, 
as well as the gas, water, sewer, and heating lines. These 
lines are carried to the new buildings but are so con- 
structed that they may be tapped at all of the intervening 
buildings on the campus. There was not sufficient money 
to extend them to all parts of the campus and therefore 
this will be a part of a future contract when additional 
buildings demand the extension of the services. 

d. Beef Cattle Bam. The two new large wings of the Beef 
Cattle Barn at the University Farm are rapidly nearing 
completion and will make quite a contribution to the 
improvement of the division of animal husbandry in the 
agriculture program. 

3. Proposed New Construction and Development of Plant 

a. New Dormitories. The two proposed self-liquidating dormi- 
tories for men and women are becoming reality with the 
selection of a successful bidder and the awarding of con- 
tracts at this meeting of the Teachers College Board. It 
is hoped that construction may be under way by June 1 of 
this year. 

b. Addition to Fell Hall. The first preliminary sketches have 
been received from the architects for the south wing on 
Fell Hall and the construction of additional rooms on the 
top floor of the present structure, as well as in the new 
wing. This construction should add a total of one hundred 
beds to the present structure and provide much-needed 
additional quarters for recreation, laundry, etc. The 
present Fell Hall was built to accommodate one hundred 
women students. As a war emergency measure, it was 
extended to 151 by placing three beds in the double rooms 
and two beds in most of the single rooms. Where three 
beds are provided many of the rooms are crowded both as to 
actual space for the occupants and for taking care of per- 
sonal belongings, The withdrawal of eighteen beds at the 
earliest possible date would reduce the number to be accom- 
modated in the present structure to 133, which with the 
addition of one hundred new beds will make a total 233-bed 
capacity structure.

c. Landscaping and Site Preparation. Plans are being com- 
pleted for changes in walks, installation of tnrn-aronnd 
drives (following the elimination of one drive through 
the campus) to buildings other than those at the edge of 
the campus, grading and landscaping around the Adminis- 
tration and Special Education buildings, the development 
of a mall directly south from the present Old Main, the 
shift in East Fell Gate and the construction of a West Fell 
Gate, and extensive changes in the drive area to the west 
of Fell Hall. 

d. The Plans for University Elementary and High Schools. 
Preliminary work on the part of staff in the preparation 
of specifications of space for the proposed University Ele- 
mentary School and the University High School is rapidly 
nearing completion and will soon be ready for the architects. 
The designation of the architects and the release of funds 
for this work have already been cared for. 

4. Acquisition of Land 

a. Final steps are being taken in the acquisition of land west 
of the campus where one piece of property is necessary for 
the actual location of the proposed new men's residence hall 
and other properties are desirable in that immediate vicin- 
ity. This will be reported on at the meeting of the 
Teachers College Board prior to the adoption of the reso- 
lution for the self-liquidating plan of procedure through 
the issuance of bonds. 

VII. AUXILIARY ENTERPRISES 

No report. 

VIII. STUDENT LIFE 

1. Student Center 

The student body of Illinois State Normal University, through 
representatives on the Student Council, is pleased to have 
the opportunity to appear before the Teachers College Board 
to indicate needs, together with ways and means of making 
possible the building of a Student Center. It is generally 
agreed by students and faculty that this is one of the greatest 
immediate needs on the campus of the University and that 
having such a center in operation would probably make the 
greatest single difference for the betterment of social life on 
the campus. Such a building would also serve to meet certain 
imperative needs of faculty and student groups in connection 
with the educational program.

2. Forensics 

With the program in forensics operating for the first time 
under a faculty member who has this particular assignment 
and who is well prepared to carry on this activity, a great 
deal of interest has developed in debating. The debating teams 
in their various tournaments and meets with other schools 
have been very successful. Increased interest has resulted in 
a large number of students working in this important area 
of the school program. 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 
1. Campus Visitors 

Perhaps because of location, size, and the wide range of offer- 
ings in all fields of teacher education, Illinois State Normal 
University has been a center for visits of foreign scholars. 
There has always been a large number of visitors from other 
educational institutions and organizations over the country but 
now groups or individuals from abroad include the school in 
their itinerary. 

In October of this year we had Miss Mahru Kutar of India 
come to us for a period of six weeks. Just at the present time 
Miss Fridericke Rametsteiner of Vienna, Austria, is spending 
at least ten days, and on May 21, Mr. Kees Boeke of The Work 
Shop, a progressive school at Bilthoven, Holland, visited the 
University. These persons are additional to others as single 
visitors and the group of German and Austrian scholars that 
we had at various times on the campus during the preceding 
year. Others are scheduled to be on the campus between now 
and the end of the regular academic year. It is a pleasure to 
make the facilities and the program of the University available 
to these visitors. 

X. SUMMARY 

Consideration and favorable action by the Teachers College 
Board is requested and will be appreciated on the following 
recommendations. 

1. Approval of the scholarship list of students certified under 
the Scholarship Law. 

2. Acceptance of the resignations of Mr. Harold F. Hall and

PROCEEDINGS 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

A. Presidents of nine teachers colleges— the five in Illinois, the 
two at Muncie and Terre Haute, Indiana, and the two at 
Ypsilanti and Mt. Pleasant, Michigan — met on Thursday, 
February 24, while attending the A. A. C. T. E. meeting in 
Atlantic City, to discuss the formation of a new nine-college 
athletic conference. 

The prospects for such a conference being organized are very 
good as all the men present were interested in having the ath- 
letic directors and coaches of the respective schools draw up 
a constitution for the proposed conference for a three-year 
probationary period. No official action has been taken on the 
proposed conference, but we thought that the Board might 
be interested in knowing that we plan to set up such a 
conference if agreeable with all the colleges. 

B. Plans for making up the time lost due to the unavoidable 
closing of Western Illinois State College due to the coal 
shortage : 

The three weeks' time will be made up as follows : February 12 
and 22 were statutory holidays. We will have school on Good 
Friday and Memorial Day, both statutory holidays. No spring 
vacation will be taken. Classes will be held on Saturdays, and 
we will have concentration weeks — that is, we, those of us on 
the quarter system, normally hold classes four days a week and 
have a system of free periods. In the concentration weeks we 
will have no free periods but rather classes will meet five days 
a week. Faculty members have been instructed to make al- 
lowance for individuals who wish to be absent from classes 
on Good Friday or for those who must work on Saturdays to 
earn money to attend college ; these students are to be pro- 
vided an opportunity to make up their work. 

We wish to express our appreciation for the excellent coopera- 
tion of the Teachers College Board, Mr. McKinney, and other 
state officials in assisting us in obtaining coal through what 
might be termed unorthodox procedures. 

C. Naming of Western's New Athletic Field 

1. Action of the Board is requested on the recommendation 
of the Advisory Committee for Western that the new 
athletic field be named "Hanson Field."

V. THE CURRICULUM 

Following the action of the College Senate, a committee of five 
members was appointed to study curriculum improvement at 
Northern Illinois State Teachers College, looking toward the 
eventual development of a more adequate curriculum. 

Elementary Teachers 

Considerable progress has been made under the plan accepted by 
the Examining Board to make possible certain upper classmen 
preparing for high school work to qualify for elementary work. 
Northern is also emphasizing through all its classes the need for 

* No Saturday classes — Summer session begins June 19 as scheduled. 

147 






TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 



elementary teachers. This need is particularly critical in the 
northern part of the state since by the autumn of 1953 the north- 
ern twenty-five counties of Illinois will need 1,000 more first 
grade teachers alone than was needed last autumn. 



VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

Men's Residence Hall 

Satisfactory progress is being made on the plans for the men's 
dormitory. Schaeffer, Hooton and Wilson, associate architects, 
have indicated that these plans will be available for bids by 
approximately May 1. 

Public Law 352 

Satisfactory progress is being made on the process of obtaining 
a loan under Public Law 352. At the present time it is necessary 
to obtain the opinion of the attorney general on two questions : 

1. Whether the State Teachers College Board is the proper 
agency of the State of Illinois to apply for and receive ad- 
vances in behalf of the State of Illinois under Public Law 352, 
81st Congress and 

2. Whether the State Teachers College Board has authority to 
undertake by contract or otherwise the plan preparation of 
educational structures of the type covered by this application. 

This plan is similar to the plan used by the federal government 
when the state colleges obtained temporary housing. 

Temporary Buildings 

Northern Illinois State Teachers College has filed a letter of inten- 
tion with the Federal Security Agency, Washington, D. C, to 
purchase two buildings located at Camp Ellis. These buildings 
are each 20 ft. x 156 ft. in size and will cost us approximately 
$43.06 each, plus the cost of dismantling ($700), loading ($150), 
transportation ($180), and re-erection ($1,500). All of these 
figures are approximate. 

We hope to purchase these buidings to be used for maintenance 
and storage shops. At the present time we have one building, 20 
ft. x 30 ft. for the use of two carpenters, one electrician, and one 
plumber. For the sum total of approximately $3,000, if our bid 
is accepted, we shall be able to house these maintenance men 
temporarily as well as provide storage for them and for other 
areas. It is indeed unfortunate that we must "steal" this money 
from Contractual Services, for it means that repair work will 

148 






PROCEEDINGS 

suffer in proportion. If we had sufficient money we could have 
purchased many more buildings, some of which could have been 
used to relieve pressure on classrooms. However, money is not 
available at this time. 

New Library 

At the Board meeting on February 20, the new library at the 
Northern Illinois State Teachers College was considered. We 
respectfully ask that the Board officially name the new library the 
SWEN FRANKLIN PARSON LIBRARY. We should like also 
to ask that the Browsing Room be called the SIMONSON ROOM 
and the auditorium on the ground floor be called the McMAHAN 
AUDITORIUM. This recommendation has been approved unani- 
mously by the faculty.

TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

VIII. STUDENT LIFE 

Commencement 

The senior class at the Northern Illinois State Teachers College 
voted almost unanimously to eliminate baccalaureate on Sunday, 
June 11 and to have commencement on that day. Following their 
wishes, commencement has been set for five o'clock, daylight saving 
time on the afternoon of June 11. We have been very fortunate 
in obtaining as commencement speaker Dr. C. L. Anspach, presi- 
dent of Central Michigan College of Education. He is well known 
as a speaker who has a religious background. It is hoped that 
many of the board will find it convenient to be present for this 
occasion. 

Coal Shutdown 

We have checked with the dean of women and with the dean of 
men. They have indicated that because of the shutdown, Northern 
has lost twenty prospective men teachers and ten prospective 
women teachers or a total of thirty prospective teachers. 

Press Contest 

The "Northern Illinois," college newspaper, placed first in a recent 
contest sponsored by the Columbia University Scholastic Press 
Association among newspapers of teachers colleges. 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

On April 4 there will be a meeting of the members of the board of 
the Northern Illinois State Teachers College Foundation for the 
purpose of electing officers for the coming year. It is felt that the 
foundation will aid the college greatly in obtaining gifts of various 
sorts.

on the part of any Board member.

time, for giving them the go-ahead signal to investigate the possibility 
of obtaining additional funds from alumni, faculty and university

"The Teachers College Board of the State of Illinois is about 
to let a contract for the construction of a combination residence 
hall and cafeteria to be constructed on recently acquired property 
of the State as a part of the campus of Illinois State Normal 
University in the three and four hundred blocks on the West side

doing so with as little interruption of any such utility service as 
possible.

SELF-LIQUIDATING PROJECTS 

At the afternoon session, in addition to the regular Board mem- 
bers and Presidents, the following people were present : Mr. C. Herrick 
Hammond and Mr. Joseph Booton of the Division of Architecture and 
Engineering; Mr. A. N. Schaeffer and Mr. P. R. Hooton of the firm of

Normal University were received, opened and tabulated in the office 
of the Division of Architecture and Engineering, and the letter from 
the Division of Architecture and Engineering listing their recom-

accepted, add the sum of $ 3,600.00 



TOTAL RECOMMENDED FOR HEATING, TEMPERATURE 
CONTROL AND PLUMBING WORK $142,250.00 



"VENTILATING WORK: 

Narowetz Heating & Ventilating Co., 1722 Washington Blvd., 
Chicago. Proposal No. 4 for the Ventilating Work for the Dormi- 
tory Building, Illinois State Normal University, Normal, Ilinois, 
as shown on the Drawings and as specified, the sum of . . $ 5,373.00 

"KITCHEN EQUIPMENT: 

The Bensinger Company, 1007 Market St., St Louis 1. Proposal 
No. 1 for the Kitchen Equipment for the Dormitory Buildings, 
Illinois State Normal University, Normal, Illinois, as shown on 
the drawings and as specified, the sum of $ 15,239.00 



"ELECTRICAL WORK: 

I hesitate recommending an award on the electrical work. 
The Wilson Electric Company is low on Proposal No. 1, in the 
amount of $39,848.00. Anderson Electric, Inc., is the next low 
bidder, in the amount of $39,850.00, and either one of these bid- 
ders would be affected by the acceptance of Alternate Proposal 
1C, which provides for the furnishing and installation of a Type 
R lighting fixture, as specified on page 201 of the specifications. 

Anderson Electric, Inc., proposal No. 1C, is in the amount 
of $1,982.00, as an addition to their proposal No. 1, and the 
Wilson Electric Company, proposal No. 1C, is in the amount of 
$3,508.00, as an addition to their proposal No. 1. The acceptance 
of Anderson Electric, Inc., proposal No. 1C, added to their pro- 
posal No. 1, would make their total proposal $41,832.00, while the 
acceptance of Wilson Electric Company's proposal No. 1C, added 
to their proposal No. 1, would total $43,356.00, in which event they 
would not be low. 

The Anderson Electric, Inc., proposal No. 1C is considerably 
lower than proposal No. 1C submitted by all other contractors, 
and it is possible that the fixture which they intend to furnish 
would not meet specification requirements. 

162 



PROCEEDINGS 

There is also a question as to whether or not proposal No. 
IB should be considered. This proposal involves connecting up 
the fire alarm system in the building with the City Fire Depart- 
ment and, if accepted, will involve a further charge of $19.00 per 
month by the Telephone Company, for the rental of their tele- 
phone line over which the fire alarm signal would be transmitted. 

There has not been sufficient time, between the receipt of the 
contractors proposals and the meeting with the Normal School 
Board, to inquire relative to the lighting fixtures included in pro- 
posal No. 1C of the respective low bidders, and I feel that the 
Normal School Board, or your Department, should decide with 
regard to the acceptance of proposal No. IB, which covers the fire 
alarm connection, which proposal, however, would not affect the 
status of the bidders. 



"KITCHEN EQUIPMENT: 

You will note that I have recommended the acceptance of the 
low bid submitted on Kitchen Equipment by The Bensinger 
Company, 1007 Market St., St. Louis 1, Mo., as it is the policy of 
this division to consider the low bid submitted, regardless of 
whether or not it is submitted by an Illinois contractor. 

Due to the fact that the out-of-State bidder is but $72.00 lower 
than the Sidney Harrison Company of Peoria, Illinois, it is pos- 
sible that the Normal School Board would feel justified in accepting 
the Illinois bidder's proposal of $15,311.00. 

There is no question regarding bids received for general 
construction, heating, plumbing and ventilating work, and the 
associate architects may have further information regarding the 
lighting fixture involved in proposal No. 1C of the electrical 
work. 

I will be glad to discuss the proposals on kitchen equipment, 
as well as all others herein recommended for acceptance with you 
and the Normal School Board at the Board Meeting on March 27. 

Yours very truly

Prior to the acceptance of the above recommendations, Mr. Dunn 
advised that the bonding company had prepared a statement, "Esti- 
mate of Cost and Revenues for Two New Residence Halls and Equip- 

163 






TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

ment for Fell Hall," which they requested be incorporated in the 
minutes of this meeting. The statement is as follows : 

"February 7, 1950 

"The Teachers College Board 
of the State of Illinois 
Springfield, Illinois 

"Gentlemen : 

"The following report sets out the estimated cost and the 
estimated revenues available to retire $1,150,000 Residence Halls 
Revenue Bonds to be issued for the purpose of constructing two 
new residence halls and providing additional equipment for Fell 
Hall at Illinois State Normal University, Normal, Illinois. 

"The estimated construction costs were secured from the 
architects, Schaeffer, Hooton & Wilson, of Bloomington, Illinois.

"Enrollment 

The University has an enrollment of 2,438 (Fall term, 1949), 
of which 1,259 were women and 1,179 were men. The University 
has shown a steady growth since 1928-9, when the enrollment was 
1,313 except during the war years. At present, the University 
operates housing facilities consisting of Fell Hall for women 
(capacity 152) and Smith Hall for men (capaicty 52). In 1948-9, 
311 men and 326 women lived at home, commuted to school, or had 
living quarters that would prevent them from living in residence 
halls. 

"Proposed Additional Housing Facilities 

It is proposed that a residence hall for women and one for 
men be constructed, each with a capacity of 156 beds. It is planned 
that an addition will be made to Fell Hall for which the Uni- 
versity has an appropriation to increase its capacity to 230. This 
would provide space for 384 women and 206 men, including 52 at 
Smith Hall. Smith Hall is not included in this program and the 
revenues will not be pledged to the bond issue. 

Below is shown the comparison of dormitory space after 
completion of the proposed residence halls, compared to 1939-40 
enrollment and 1948-9 enrollment :-

As the plans for the addition to Fell Hall will not be com % 
pleted for at least 6 months, it will not be possible to pledge the 
revenues from this addition to these bonds at the time the bond 
' resolution is passed. The revenue from Fell Hall as it now exists 
can be pledged. In order to avoid difficult bookkeeping problems 
and to make the bond more salable, it is recommended that after 
the resolution authorizing the bonds is passed and before the bonds 
are sold that the Teachers College Board adopt a resolution to the 
effect that when the addition to Fell Hall is completed, that it is 
their intention to operate the entire hall as a unit and that all 
funds from Fell Hall, including the addition, will be used for 
the payment of operating expenses and the payment of debt 
service on the bonds.

"Estimated Income 

Present rates for room and board are $14 per week, which is 
divided $3.15 for room and $10.85 for board. The dining hall in 
Fell Hall is operated in connection with a cafeteria and another 
dining hall and expenses are not segregated. Actual operations for 
the year ended 6/30/49, show a profit of $11,337 from all dining 
facilities. In the estimate set out below, rates are increased to $4.00 
per week for room and $11.00 per week for board. It is assumed 
there will be a profit of $1.15 per week per student on the dining 
hall operations. Below is shown in (a) the income available for 
bonds prior to the construction of the Fell Hall addition; and 
(b) after the construction of the Fell Hall addition and assuming 
that revenue from this addition is contributed toward the retire- 
ment of these bonds.

work inasmuch as there w^as only a difference of $2.00 in the base bid. 
However, the base bid of the Wilson Electric Company in the amount 
of $39,848.00 plus the amount of Alternate 1C, $3,508.00, was greater 
than the bid submitted by the Anderson Electric, Inc., in the amount 
of $39,850.00 plus $1,982.00 for Alternate 1C. Consequently the Board 
accepted the bid of the Anderson Electric, Inc., inasmuch as their base 
bid plus the amount of Alternate 1C was the lowest bid. 

Mr. Nickell moved the adoption of the following resolution : 

Be It Resolved by the Teachers College Board of the State 
of Illinois that this Board accept the bid of Anderson Electric, 
Inc., of Danville, Illinois, together with an alternate totaling 
$41,832.00 for the Electrical Work of the Residence Halls for 
Illinois State Normal University, on University Street at Normal, 
Illinois, for which bids were received on March 23, 1950, with 
alternates as recommended by the Division of Architecture and 
Engineering of the Department of Public Works and Buildings 
of the State of Illinois, and Associate Architects Schaeffer, Hooton 
and Wilson of Bloomington, Illinois, providing the State of Illi- 
nois acquires ownership of that tract of land now known as Twin 
Grove Street in Normal, Illinois, together with other lands pri- 
vately owned but needed as part of the building site, and provid- 
ing the bonds which must be sold to produce funds to pay for such 
construction are sold and contracted for at not less than par value 
and accrued interest, and that the Chairman and Secretary of this 
Board be authorized to sign the contracts for this work. 

The motion was seconded by Mrs. Pegelow, unanimously carried, and 
the bid of Anderson Electric, Inc., plus an Alternate for a total amount 
of $41,832.00, was approved by the Board.

"Enrollment 

The College has an enrollment of 1,544 for the 1949 Fall term, 
of which 1,013 are men and 531 are women. The enrollment for 
the 1949 Summer term was 890, of which 427 were men and 463 
were women. The ratio of men students to women students has 
increased substantially since 1933-4 when there were 455 men and 

172 






PROCEEDINGS 

612 women enrolled. Of the 1,013 men enrolled this year, only 361 
are veterans. Deducting this number from the total men enrolled 
still leaves 121 more men than women. This increase in male en- 
rollment has a decided bearing on the future success of the Col- 
lege's athletic program. 

''Present Athletic Field 

The College has just completed the construction of a new 
athletic field situated at the north end of the campus. The football 
field runs north and south and is surrounded by an oval, concrete- 
curbed running track made of black loam and cinders. Both the 
east and west sides of the field have natural sod banks running 
up to a 45 degree angle about 60 or 75 feet. Permanent bleachers 
which will accommodate 1,500 spectators have been constructed on 
the east side of the field. 

"Construction of Proposed Stadium 

It is proposed to construct a stadium to accommodate 5,000 
spectators on the west side of the new athletic field, and at the 
north end of the field a building to house locker rooms, showers, 
training facilities, etc. 

"Estimated Cost of Construction of Stadium: 

Cost of Construction $125,000 

Landscaping 5,000 

Interest During Construction (18 months) 4,550 

Financial, Architect's Fees and Contingencies 14,450 

Total Cost of Construction $149,000 

Less Available Funds on Hand with Student 

Activity Board 19,000 

Amount of Bond Issue $130,000 

"Estimated Income 

A student activity fee of $10 is collected from each student 
for each quarter and for the full Summer term. From this $10 
the Student Activity Board allocates->$2 to the Athletic Fund for 
the purpose of paying for improvements to its athletic field. In 
the future, this fee will be used to pay principal and interest on 
the proposed bond issue. Based on the enrollment of the Summer 
of 1949 and the 1949 Fall quarter, revenue to pa}^ bonds and 
interest will be available as follows : 

Regular term : 1,544 students x 3 quarters x $2 $ 9,264 

Summer term : 890 students x $2 1,780 

TOTAL $11,044 

Average Annual Debt Service ($130,000 over 

30 years) $ 7,173

TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

COLLEGE CALENDARS 

At the March 26-27 meeting of the Teachers College Board the 
matter of calendars was referred back to the four Presidents with the 
request that they get together and work out a program whereby there 
would not be such a wide variance in the total number of holidays or 
vacation days. 

After due deliberation, Mr. Nickell moved that the Presidents 
work out the number of holidays or vacation periods, i.e., that the 
total number of days be uniform in all four institutions, and further 
that the legal holidays be uniform for all schools, and that the Presi- 
dents be authorized to prepare and print their calendars for the school 
year 1950-'51. The motion was seconded by Mr. Means and unanimously 
carried. 

REPORT ON AGRICULTURE AT I. S. N. U. 

Mr. Nickell advised that the Committee appointed by him, at the 
request of the Illinois State Board of Vocational Education, to make 
a survey of Illinois State Normal University regarding standards for 
qualifying as an institution to train teachers of Vocational Agriculture 
was of the unanimous opinion that Illinois State Normal University 
meets the required standards for the preparation of Vocational Agri- 
cultural teachers. The Committee further found, with reference to the 
need for Vocational Agricultural teachers, that the supply is adequate 
to meet the demands for such teachers. 

In view of the above report, Mr. Nickell advised that the matter 
now rests in the hands of the Board of Vocational Education. 

Mr. Dunn advised that he and Mr. Bohrer had prepared and now 
presented for adoption the following resolution : 

WHEREAS the Teachers College Board of the State of 
Illinois now in regular session is aware of the fact that pursuant 
to direction of the Illinois Board of Vocational Education a special 
committee was appointed to inspect the Agricultural Department 
of Illinois State Normal University for the purpose of determining 
whether or not said department met the qualifications required to 
train teachers of agriculture under the provisions of the Smith- 
Hughes Act, and to also report on the need in Illinois for training 
such teachers in addition to such training now conducted solely 
at the University of Illinois, and, 

"WHEREAS this Board is unofficially but reliably informed 
that said committee has completed its investigation and has for- 
warded its report to the Illinois Board for Vocational Education 
stating in substance that the committee is unanimous in finding 
the Agricultural Department of Illinois State Normal University 
is fully qualified in all respects to train such teachers and that 
the committee by a divided vote of four to two finds that there is 
no need for such additional training, and 

182

Present Student Residence Halls 

The University now operates two residence halls and a cafeteria. 
Smith Hall for men has a capacity of 52 and Fell Hall now accommo- 
dates 152 women. The Legislature has appropriated $640,000 for an 
addition to Fell Hall which will increase its capacity to 230. The 
revenues from Smith Hall are not pledged to this bond issue. The 
existing- capacity of Fell Hall is pledged, together with all the dining 
facilities of Fell Hall. The cafeteria now located in the basement of 
Fell Hall will eventually be transferred to a Student Union Buiding. 
The cafeteria serves an average of about 150 students per day. 

Below is shown the comparison of dormitory space after the comple- 
tion of the proposed residence halls, compared to 1939-40 enrollment and 
1948-49 enrollment. Also shown is the total students in need of housing 
in the 1948-49 year. This figure excludes students living at home or 
with other relatives, working for room, or commuting to school.

New Residence Halls 

The two new residence halls, designed by Schaeffer, Hooton and 
Wilson, Architects, Bloomington, Illinois, in consultation with the 
office of C. Herrick Hammond, Architect for the State of Illinois, will 
be of brick construction and located directly across University Street 
from the present campus on land in the process of being acquired by 
the University. Each hall, one for men and one for women, will house 
156 students and a director. Complete dining facilities are located 
between the buildings. It is expected that the new residence halls will 
be ready for occupancy by September 1, 1951. 

Rates 

Rates for board and room for both Fell Hall and the new residence 
halls will be $15 per week which is divided $11 for board and $4 for 
room. Present rates for board and room at Fell Hall $14 per week. 



Estimated Revenues and Operating Expenses prior to the 
Completion of Fell Hall Addition 

The estimate shown below is based on present capacity of 152 in 
Fell Hall and 312 in the new residence halls, a total of 464. At present, 
a cafeteria is operated in the basement of Fell Hall. This cafeteria will 

189 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

be transferred to a Student Union Building, the construction of which 
is now being considered. Consequently, revenues and expenses of the 
cafeteria have not been considered in these estimates. 

Included below in the cost of food is $11,174, which represents the 
cost of food for student help to serve as waiters and dishwashers and 
are provided meals for their services. The cost of food is computed on 
the basis of 80c per day per person. Actual food cost at Fell Hall, 
Smith Hall and the cafeteria for the year ended 6/30/49, was approxi- 
mately 79c per day per person.

Estimated Revenues and Operating Expenses After Completion 
of Fell Hall Addition 

The State Legislature has appropriated $640,000 for an addition 
to Fell Hall. Under the law, it is not possible for The Teachers College 
Board to pledge the revenues of the Fell Hall addition. This addition 
will provide space for 100 more women but due to present crowded 
conditions in Fell Hall, the total capacity after completion of the 
addition will be 230. All students living in both the new and old sec- 
tions of the hall will eat in the present dining facilities at Fell Hall. 
This will result in 442 students paying board and room and 100 stu- 
dents paying board only. 

Included below in the cost of food is $13,306, which represents the 
cost of food for student waiters and dishwashers. Food cost is com- 
puted at 80c per day per person as in the figures above.

College Board covenants and agrees with each and every holder of 
said bonds that it will apply the proceeds thereof to the purposes for

from such registration by being transferred to bearer, after which it 
shall be transferred by delivery, but it may be again registered as be- 
fore. The registration of this bond shall not restrict the negotiability of 
the coupons by delivery merely. 

This bond is subject to the conditions and every subsequent holder 
hereof by accepting the same agrees with the obligor and every subse- 
quent holder hereof, that (a) the delivery of this bond to any trans- 
feree if not registered, or if it be registered, if the last registered trans- 
fer be to bearer, shall vest title to this bond and the interest repre- 
sented thereby in such transferee to the same extent for all purposes as 
would the delivery under like circumstances of any negotiable instru- 
ment payable to bearer; (b) the obligor and any agent of the obligor 
may treat the bearer of this bond, or if it be registered in the name of 
a holder, the registered holder of this bond, as the absolute owner 
hereof for all purposes and shall not be affected by any notice to the 
contrar3 r ; (c) the principal of and the interest on this bond will be 
paid, and this bond and each of the coupons appertaining thereto are 
transferable, free from and without regard to any equities between the 
obligor and the original or any intermediate holder or to any setoffs 
or counterclaims; and (d) the surrender to the obligor or any agent of 
the obligor of each of the coupons or of this bond if not registered, or if 
it be registered, if the last registered transfer be to bearer, or the 
receipt of the registered holder for the principal hereof if this bond 
be registered in the name of a holder, shall be a good discharge to the 
obligor for the same. 

It is hereby certified and recited and declared that all acts, condi- 
tions and things required to exist, to happen and to be performed, 
precedent to and in the issuance of this bond, have existed, have hap- 
pened and have been performed in due form, time and manner as re- 
quired by law, and that the amount of this bond, together with all 
other bonds of this issue of which this is one, does not exceed any 
limit prescribed by the Constitution or the Statutes of the State of 
Illinois.

Registration and Incidental Fee of $15 per quarter for residents of 
Illinois, and $25 per quarter for non-residents. A Student Activity 
Fee of $10 per quarter is charged all students except Teachers Col- 
lege Scholarship and Military Scholarship students whose fees are

TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Present Stadium Facilities 

The College has just completed the construction of a new athletic 
field which is situated in a natural draw at the north end of the campus. 
The football field runs north and south and is surrounded by an oval, 
concrete-curbed running track made of black loam and cinders. Both 
the east and west sides of the field have natural sod banks running up 
at a 45 degree angle some 60 or 75 feet. This angle is just right for the 
construction of bleachers or stadia. The College has constructed perma- 
nent bleachers on the east side of the field to accommodate 1,500 
spectators. 

Proposed Additional Facilities 

Through the proceeds of this issue, the College will complete its 
stadium by the construction of a reinforced steel and concrete struc- 
ture with 5,000 seating capacity, and furnish essential equipment 
therefor. 

Fees and Charges for Use of Stadium 

Each student pays a Student Activity Fee of $10 per quarter, $2 
of which will be allocated to the Revenue Fund of 1950 for the Western 
Illinois State College, from which these bonds are payable and will en- 
title each student to attend the athletic events held in the stadium to 
be completed from the proceeds of this bond issue. Admission to foot- 
ball games will be $1.00 plus tax for adults, and 50c plus tax for high 
school students. There will be additional income from Western High 
School football games and rentals for other events. 

Revenues from $2 of the Student Activity Fee 

These bonds are payable from the revenues of the stadium, the 
principal source of which is $2 per quarter of the $10 Student Activity 
Fee. This fee has been in effect since the 1948 Fall term, and the College 
has collected $17,770 for improvements to the athletic field, $16,000 
of which is being used in this construction program. Based on this 
student fee alone, the revenue available for those bonds, assuming an 
enrollment of 1,300 regular students and 750 summer students, com- 
pared to an average regular enrollment of 1,537 and 877 summer en- 
rollment for the past 3 years, will be $9,300 per year as shown below: 

3 Regular Quarters : 1,300 students x $2 $7,800 

Summer Quarter : 750 students x $2 1,500 

Total $9,300 

Other Revenues 

A limiting factor for attendance at the College's football games has 
been the small seating capacity of the old athletic field. With the com- 
pletion of this stadium seating 6,500 people and the installation of lights 
for the night games, the estimated gross receipts for the 1950 football 

216

schedule are shown below. This does not include any receipts from 
Western High School, or other miscellaneous events. 

9/24/50 Michigan Central — Dedication and Opening 

Game (Night) $ 6,000 

10/13/50 Indiana State (Night) 3,500 

10/21/50 Northern Illinois State — Homecoming 7,000 

11/ 3/50 Dubuque University (Night) 1,500 

11/11/50 Eastern Illinois State 3,500 



$21,500 

The above gross receipts cannot be considered an average year, as 
Western Illinois State College won the Illinois Inter-collegiate Athletic 
Conference Championship in 1949, and prospects for 1950 are very 
good. In addition, the dedication of the new stadium and lighting 
system will result in greater attendance than usually can be expected. 
Below is shown income of the athletic field for the past 3 years. This 
includes contributions from the. Student Activity Fund, but does not 
include the $2 per student fee which has been set aside for improve- 
ments and will be used to pay debt service on these bonds.

tion approved Illinois State Normal University for the training of 
teachers of Vocational Agriculture and that now the matter is in the 
hands of the officials at Washington for final approval.

are a number of changes to be made. However, Dr. Reavis advised that

the Board, at the next regular meeting, which is scheduled for June 26, 
the action he wished taken in connection with Miss Hendrix. 

Dr. Buzzard also advised that Dr. Metter, Director of Teacher 
Training and Placement, who was seriously injured in an automobile 
accident several months ago, is expected back to duty by June 1, 
probably for only half-day. 

Dr. Larsen reported informally on Illinois State Normal Uni- 
versity advising that the faculty continues to be very cooperative.

Building.

Board nor any State Agency is authorized to apply for and receive a 
loan or advance from the Federal Government under Public Law 352. 

Dr. Holmes advised that the Lorado Taft project has moved an- 
other notch. The next step is to supply Director Casey with a deed to

opinion as to what can be done in order to obtain the Lorado Taft 
Area for the use of Northern Illinois State Teachers College.

Mr. Newman of Barcus, Kindred and Company advised that the 
bonding company had made an investigation relative to the cost of

cost of installing and maintaining their own laundry facilities. It was 
found that within a short period of time the installation of such 
facilities would pay for themselves. In view of this information, Mr. 
Wirtz moved that laundry equipment be installed in Williston Hall to 
service all of the college needs, and that it be included in the self- 
liquidating project for the men's residence hall at Northern Illinois 
State Teachers College, subject to the satisfactory bid for the sale of 
the bonds required to finance the project, and that the State Architect 
be authorized to receive proposals covering said work.

ILLINOIS STATE COLLEGE

building a residence hall at Eastern by using part of the appropriation 
made by the 66th General Assembly and financing the balance on a 
self-liquidating basis was discussed. The Board also authorized the 
Fiscal Agents to make a survey to determine whether or not it was 
advisable to undertake such a project at Eastern at this time. 

After discussing the matter again, Mr. Nickell moved that we plan 
to build a residence hall at Eastern Illinois State College, financing 
about four-tenths of the total cost on a self-liquidating plan, and that 
Barcus, Kindred and Company and J. T. Swartz and Company, Inc., 
submit a prospectus at the next regular meeting of the Teachers College

The proposed construction of a Home Management House was 
discussed briefly. The location was referred to the State Architect, 
who is going to have a conference with Mr. Hill and report the results 
of said conference at the meeting scheduled for June 26, 1950. 

SELF-LIQUIDATING RESIDENCE HALLS AT LSN.U. 

At a previous meeting of the Teachers College Board the Associate 
Architects were requested to find out how much more it would cost to 
provide foam rubber cushion chairs for the straight back chairs. They 
advise that it would cost approximately $3,300.00 more.

TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

In view of this Dr. Reavis moved that the Teachers College Board 
approve the substitution of foam rubber cushion chairs for the straight 
back chairs, involving an additional cost of $3,300.00. The motion was 
seconded by Mr. Walker and unanimously carried. 

At the same time that the Associate Architects were requested to 
find out how much more it would cost for the foam rubber cushion 
chairs they were also requested to find out how much more it would cost 
to provide coil springs instead of the fabric springs. They advised that 
the additional cost amounted to $410.00. 

In view of this information, Mr. Walker moved that the Teachers 
College Board approve the substitution of coil springs for the fabric 
springs. The motion was seconded by Mr. Wirtz and unanimously 
carried. 

Due to unavoidable circumstances, it was necessary to recess the 
May 19 meeting until June 3, 1950, in order that the Teachers College 
Board could advertise the sale of revenue bonds to produce funds to 
finance the residence hall at Northern Illinois State Teachers College. 
In view of this, Mr. Walker moved that this meeting be recessed until 
June 3, 1950, the meeting to be called at 1 :30 P.M. (C.S.T.) in Director 
Puffer's office, Capitol Building, Springfield, Illinois, at which time 
sealed bids will be opened for the purchase at not less than par and 
accrued interest of $1,350,000.00 Student Residence Halls Revenue 
Bonds, Series of 1950 of The Teachers College Board of the State of 
Illinois for Northern Illinois State Teachers College at DeKalb, Illinois. 
The motion was seconded by Mr. Wirtz and unanimously carried. 

The meeting of the Teachers College Board reconvened at 1 :30 
P.M. (C.S.T.) on Saturday, June 3, 1950, in Director Puffer's office, 
Capitol Building, Springfield, Illinois. Noble J. Puffer, Director of 
the Department of Registration and Education and Chairman of the

Bonds for Northern Illinois State Teachers College, and showed the 
members of the Board the advertisement as it appeared in "The Bond 
Buyer" of May 27, 1950. 

Secretary Nickell then asked if all bids were in his hands. Being 
so advised that all bids were in his hands, Secretary Nickell was then 
ready to open the bids. However, before this was done, Mr. Dunn 
advised that on May 24, 1950, an opinion had been requested of the 
Attorney General as to whether the property on which the residence 
hall is to be erected is the property of the State of Illinois. 

In the opinion of the Attorney General, ". . . the title to the 
above-described premises is vested in the Northern Illinois State 
Teachers College as of January 15, 1947, subject to the provisions 
contained in the deeds conveying the property in question, that said 
property should be used for school purposes only." 

Prior to the opening of sealed bids for the purchase of $1,350,- 
000.00 Student Residence Halls Revenue Bonds, the bonding company 
requested that the Board approve the report of the Fiscal Agents 
dated May 19, 1950. 

Mr. Nickell moved that the following report of the Fiscal Agents

The Teachers College Board 

The Teachers College Board of the State of Illinois was organized 
pursuant to Chapter 127 of the laws of the State of Illinois, and is 
comprised of nine members appointed by the Governor. The Director 
of Registration and Education of the State of Illinois is ex-officio 
Chairman of the Board and the Superintendent of Public Instruction 
is the ex-officio Secretary. The present members of the Board are : 

Noble J. Puffer, Chairman Barrington

Under the control of this Board are the four Teachers Colleges of 
the State of Illinois : Illinois State Normal University, Normal, Illinois ; 
Northern Illinois State Teachers College, DeKalb, Illinois; Western 
Illinois State College, Macomb, Illinois; and Eastern Illinois State 
College at Charleston, Illinois. 

Northern Illinois State Teachers College 

Northern Illinois State Teachers College is located about 60 miles 
west of Chicago at DeKalb, Illinois, a city of approximately 15,000 
people. The College was established in 1895 by an Act of the General 
Assembly of the State of Illinois. It is accredited by the North Central 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and by the American 
Association of Colleges for Teachers Education, and is a member of 
the Illinois Inter-Collegiate Athletic Conference. The enrollment for 
the fall quarter of 1949 was 1,964, of which 1,153 were men and 811 
women. The faculty and administrative staff consists of 137 members 
and there are 78 non-academic employees. Northern is the second 
largest of the four State Teachers Colleges. 

253 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

The campus consists of 152 acres. Buildings and equipment were 
valued at $3,370,873 as of 6/30/49. In addition to the proposed resi- 
dence hall, there is a $1,562,000 library under construction. Upon the 
completion of the new library, the existing library will be converted 
into a school of business education. At present, Northern does not 
offer courses in the training of teachers in commercial subjects. Due 
to an existing demand for teachers in these courses, it is expected that 
enrollment will show further increases when these courses are offered 
by 1952. 

The College is supported by State appropriations and no tuition is 
charged. There is an Incidental Fee of $15 per quarter and a Student 
Activity Fee of $10 per quarter. Northern maintains an elementary 
training school with 238 pupils, including a kindergarten. 

Purpose of Bond Issue 

These $1,350,000 bonds are being issued for the purpose of con- 
structing a student residence hall for men, complete with kitchen and 
dining facilities ; remodeling and equipping Williston Hall, existing 
residence hall for 248 women ; and completing Adams Hall with space 
for 122 women. The new residence hall will provide space for a mini- 
mum of 374 men. At present, the College has no residence halls for 
men. Bids for $996,320 construction work were received on May 19th. 
Completion bonds covering these contracts and additional contracts to 
be let will be posted. The estimated cost of the project is as follows : 

Cost of Construction and Equipment $1,025,100 

Allowance for Landscaping 55,000 

Allowance for Lounge and Dining Hall Furniture 38,000 

$1,118,100 

Interest During Construction 70,000 

Contingencies, Financial and Architects 161,900 

Total $1,350,000 

Legal Authority and Security 

These bonds will constitute a first lien upon the net revenues to 
be derived from the operation of the student residence hall to be con- 
structed and the two existing student residence halls known as Willis- 
ton Hall and Adams Hall, and will be issued by The Teachers College 
Board of the State of Illinois for the Northern Illinios State Teachers 
College at DeKalb, Illinois, pursuant to the provisions of "An Act to 
authorize The Teachers College Board to acquire, build, purchase or 
otherwise construct, equip, complete, remodel, operate, control and 
manage student residence halls, dormitories, dining halls, student 
union buildings, field houses, stadiums and other revenue-producing 
buildings, including sites therefor, for the State Teachers Colleges and

287 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

J. Completion of Contracted Duty 

1. Esther Silverstein, A.M., Instructor and First Grade 
Critic was notified in writing on January 30, 1950, that 
both of her superiors recommended her services be dis- 
continued at the end of her contract period, the close of 
summer school on August 4, 1950. Accordingly, Miss Sil- 
verstein was not recommended for re-employment on 
March 27, 1950, and the position of Instructor and First 
Grade Critic was indicated as "to be filled." Miss Silver- 
stein will complete the contracted duty on August 4, 1950. 

K. Status of doctoral candidates 

1. Assistant Professor Robert A. Warner, expects to com- 
plete requirements for the doctorate in Music at the Uni- 
versity of Michigan ; Assistant Professor Thomas A. Phil- 
lips for the doctorate in Education at the University of 
Illinois ; Assistant Professor Arthur F. Byrnes in Audio- 
Visual Education at New York University, and probably 
Assistant Professor Paris J. Van Horn in Physical Educa- 
tion at Indiana University, by the end of the summer of 
1950. Each of the above men will use veteran privileges. 

L. Graduate Study by Veterans on the Faculty 

1. Considerable concern is being evidenced by veterans on 
the faculty who have not yet earned the doctor's degree, 
over an interpretation of veteran's study privileges that 
such study must be begun before July 1, 1951 and then 
continued to completion, else remuneration will be lost. 
Several veterans have already filed written application 
for sabbatical year privileges for 1951-52, due to reaching 
eligibility for such privilege in June 1951. Probably there 
will be twice as many applicants as sabbatical leaves 
available. Since this situation will come within the bien- 
nium 1951-53, it is hoped that the available budget can 
meet the requested privileges. 

M. New Faculty

V. CURRICULUM 

At the request of the Illinois State Examining' Board the Western 
Illinois State College will offer during the summer of 1950 the 
three following programs for teachers, now certified to teach in 
secondary schools, who wish to prepare to teach in elementary 
schools. The programs planned by Western have the approval of 
the State Examining Board. 

Plan No. 1 — Workshop in Elementary Education — Education 
450-451-452-453. (To be offered June 5— August 18, 1950, and 
summer of 1951.) 

The purpose of this workshop will be to give persons now 
holding certificates to teach in secondary schools and college 
graduates not now certified to teach (1) an opportunity 
to study intensively the several subject-matter areas which 
constitute the major portions of the elementary school cur- 
riculum, such as: (a) language arts and reading, (b) 
social studies and geography, (c) elementary science and 
mathematics, (d) fine arts — music and art, and (e) health 
and physical education; and (2) to give these groups pro- 
fessional education consisting of (a) directed observation 
and some student teaching on the elementary level, (b) 
classroom management and methods, (c) child growth and 
development, and (d) evaluative procedures. Sixteen quar- 
ter hours. 

Plan No. II — This plan has been designed so that people en- 
rolled in the secondary school curriculum (Curriculum C) 
might qualify for an emergency elementary certificate in addi- 
tion to the regular secondary school certificate. This plan 
permits the taking of additional courses or the taking of 
courses necessary for securing the elementary limited state 
certificate as electives now required in Curriculum C, such as : 
(1) English 219 or Reading 220, (2) Psychology 421, (3) So- 
cial Science 220 or 221, (4) Art 319, 320, 321, (5) Mathematics 
100, 219, 221, (6) Music 320, 321, (7) Education 422, 423, 424, 
430, (8) Education 325, (9) Education 435, and (10) Educa- 
tion 310. 

A selection of the proper courses will give a total of 16 quarter 
hours of 10 2/3 semester hours. 

320 






PROCEEDINGS 

Plan No. Ill — For those who (1) hold the Baccalaureate de- 
gree and (2) whose previous training qualifies them to enter 
this program, and (3) wish to work for the Master of Science 
in Education in the elementary field, certain courses will be 
offered during the summer session which may be used for 
certification in the field of elementary education. Four courses 
from the following graduate courses on the elementary level 
will give 16 quarter hours or 10 2/3 semester hours credit : 

First Summer Term : Biology 500, Education 435, English 
421, Geography 507 or 519, Mathematics 500, Social Science 
500, Education 416 or 436. 

Second Summer Term : Psychology 421, Geography 519, 
Physical Science 400, English 421, English 519. 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

A. Contracts were let and bonds sold for a $146,000 self-liquidat- 
ing stadium project on April 17, 1950. This entire amount is 
going to be paid by a $2.00 per person student assessment per 
quarter over a thirty-year period. Although it has been men- 
tioned several times, I wish to stress again that none of the 
money for the building of the stadium will come from tax 
money or state appropriation. 

The bonding company is asking as an added safeguard that 
the revenue from the stadium be sent to the State Treasurer 
and that bills for operating the stadium and expenses in con- 
nection with the same be sent to the State Auditor. Although 
there should be ample money from the $2.00 assessment fee, 
the foregoing procedure is set up by the bonding company as 
a safeguard. 

B. The new addition to the Western laboratory school, consisting 
of classrooms and a gymnasium, will be completed by Sep- 
tember 1950. 

C. Work on the power plant addition and the addition to Morgan 
gymnasium is progressing fairly well. 

VII. AUXILIARY ENTERPRISES— No Report 

VIII. STUDENT LIFE 

A. The band and choruses of the Western Laboratory School won 
the sweepstakes in the state music contest for Class D schools. 
Out of the thirty-six ensembles and solos entered in the district 
and state contests, twenty-three placed first in the state finals. 
We feel that this is an exceptionally fine record in view of the 
fact that the band and choruses were organized in the fall of 
1948 when Mr. A. Oren Gould, the director, began his duties 
at Western. 

321 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

B. Kappa Sigma Kappa, social fraternity, has purchased an eight- 
room residence which will provide housing facilities for 
twenty-four men students. Fraternity members are working 
this summer to remodel the attic, making a dormitory out of 
the same, and also making other improvements in the house. 

C. Grote Hall, women's dormitory, has been completely reserved 
for the fall of 1950 since early in February, and there are 
over a hundred on the waiting list. Rooms on campus for men 
students have also been filled for next year since May 1. From 
the foregoing it is indicated that we will have as many students 
next year as we had in the fall of 1949 or more. 

D. A fourth social fraternity, Delta Sigma Phi, has been organ- 
ized at Western and a charter issued by the national office. The 
new fraternity has thirty-five members, and Mr. Richard R. 
Abbott is the faculty sponsor.

8. Music Department 

Several times during the months preceding the date of the 
letter shown below, Dean Zulauf, dean of the faculty, had con- 
ferences with Dr. Wayne Christeson, head of the Music Depart- 
ment, regarding the administration of that department. The 
conferences were called by Dean Zulauf because of the dissatis- 
faction expressed by members of the department. 

336 



PROCEEDINGS 

About the middle of November, I received typewritten state- 
ments representing, so I was told, the majority of opinion of 
the Music Department. These statements covered almost three 
pages and to say the least, were very critical of Dr. Christe- 
son's administration. On Wednesday, November 23, Dean Zu- 
lauf and I discussed the situation in detail with Dr. Christeson 
at which time he was given a summary of the statements and 
had an opportunity to see them in their entirety. At that time 
he said he would do his best to improve the relationship be- 
tween the department and himself. However, we felt that since 
he was then in his third year, that we should make it clear to 
him that tenure could not be obtained by him at the end of his 
third year. Therefore, the following letter was written to him 
under date of November 28 : 

"This note is to confirm part of our discussion of Wednes- 
day, November 23 at which time it was indicated that be- 
cause of certain administrative problems, it is best to with- 
hold tenure from you until at least the summer of 1952 
when we shall again discuss the administrative phase of 
your work. Of course, in the meantime it is my plan to 
confer with you many times." 

Since the above letter was written, affairs within the depart- 
ment have definitely not improved. In fact, they have become 
much worse. The Administrative Council, composed of three 
elected members and three appointed members, including my- 
self, are taking new written statements under advisement. 
These statements are a composite of the reactions of all mem- 
bers of the department concerning Dr. Christeson. At the time 
of preparing the board report, it is impossible for me to give 
the Board the recommendation of the Administrative Council 
regarding Dr. Christeson and the Music Department. There 
will be another report of this situation in the next written 
board report. 

Extension of Appointment — Faculty Assistant 

Mrs. Florence Ignoffo, faculty assistant, registered nurse serv- 
ing in the Student Health Clinic, at a salary of $215 per month

beginning March 15 through June 15 but finds she can stay

longer hours.

IV. THE CURRICULUM— No Report 

V. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

1. New Library 

During the past winter, the construction of the new library 
has fallen behind. However, I have been informed that if 
building conditions are favorable this summer and particularly 
this winter, that the library should be completed approxi- 
mately on schedule — the autumn of 1951. At the present time 
only the lower walls are completed and these not entirely 
around the building. However, it is far enough along to give 
everyone an idea of the size of the building. All of us at North- 
ern are extremely pleased with the prospect of having the 
library in the near future. 

2. Men's Residence 

At the special board meeting held in Director Puffer's office on 
June 3, the board took action assuring Northern of a men's 
residence. Nothing, of course, has been done in the way of 
breaking ground as yet but we are looking forward to having 
this event occur.

3. Athletic Area 

Progress is being made in the athletic-physical education area 
although because of the cold, wet spring, grass has not yet been 
sown on the football field. It is apparent now that good main- 
tenance of the physical education area will be extremely im- 
portant.

PROCEEDINGS 

VIII. STUDENT LIFE 

1. Commencement 

Northern was greatly honored on June 11 by the overflow 
crowd that we had for the fifty-first commencement. Best esti- 
mates indicate that at least 6,000 persons were present. This 
great crowd can be attributed to several favorable factors, not 
the least of which was the ideal weather and the fact that 
commencement was at five o'clock on Sunday afternoon. This 
made it possible for parents, relatives, and friends to be pres- 
ent. We were fortunate in having Dr. Charles Anspach, presi- 
dent of Central Michigan College of Education as our speaker. 
Next year the senior class will be given an opportunity again 
to vote regarding baccalaureate and commencement. It is our 
guess now that they will wish to follow the procedure of the 
class that has just graduated. 

2. DP Student 

In a previous board report, we mentioned briefly that the 
Human Relations Council planned to bring a DP student to 
the campus. Mr. Oleh Fadeshyn, Ukrainian student, arrived 
for the opening of the spring quarter. He has been in at- 
tendance, has made a warm spot for himself in the circle of 
the student body, and is making good progress. Mr. Fadeshyn 
speaks six languages and served as interpreter at the American 
Army headquarters in Munich.

PERMANENT IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS 

At the last meeting of the Board, the matter of the location of 
the Home Management House was referred to the State Architect, who, 
in turn, was going to have a conference with Mr. Hill and report results 
of said conference at this meeting. 

Mr. Bootan, representing the State Architect, distributed copies 
of the master plan of Eastern Illinois State College, copies of the plan 
of the proposed Home Management House in one location, and copies 
of the plan of the Home Management House in another location. Mr. 
Booton explained his reasons for the two locations. 

After thoroughly discussing" the matter, Mr. Walker moved that 
the plan for the Home Management House, as shown on Sheet No. 1, be 
adopted. The motion was seconded by Mrs. Pegelow and unanimously 
carried. 

Mr. Booton then distributed copies of the proposed site plans for 
the self -liquidating dormitories at Eastern labeled Scheme A and 
Scheme B. Mr. Booton explained the difference in the two plans. 

After a thorough discussion, Mr. Bohrer moved that the site plan 
for the self -liquidating dormitories at Eastern, as shown on Scheme A 
of Sheet No. 2, be adopted. The motion was seconded by Mr. Wirtz and 
unanimously carried. 

. Mr. Booton advised that the J. A. Ross and Company had been 
requested to submit a proposal for the preparation of a parking area 
around the Library Building at Northern. A proposal has been re- 
ceived in the amount of $13,174.55, which the Division of Architecture 
and Engineering considered fair and reasonable and recommended for 
acceptance. 

Mr. Wirtz moved that the J. A. Ross and Company's proposal in 
the amount of $13,174.55, for building a parking area in connection 
with the Library Building, as shown on Sheet No. 1 of 2 Sheets, be 
accepted. The motion was seconded by Mr. Bohrer and unanimously 
carried. 

While Mr. Booton was present, Chairman Puffer asked him if he 
could supply the Board with any information regarding the completion 
of the tennis courts at Eastern, inasmuch as he had recently had some 
correspondence regarding this matter, and also because this was the 
third summer this project had been under way and was not completed 
yet. 

349 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Mr. Wooton advised that, off hand, he had no definite information, 
but would check into the matter and see what could be done to expedite 
the completion of this project. 

Mr. Wirtz moved that the Teachers College Board authorize the 
Division of Architecture and Engineering to approve payments of all 
construction costs and architects' fees on all self-liquidating projects 
as work progresses, and further, that the Division of Architecture and 
Engineering be authorized to sign all contracts for self-liquidating 
projects and keep record of accounts, such authorization to be retro- 
active. The motion was seconded by Mr. Bohrer and unanimously 
carried. 

At a previous meeting, the Fiscal Agents had been requested to 
make a survey at Eastern with regard to the financing of about four- 
tenths of the total cost of constructing the two dormitories on a self- 
liquidating basis and obtaining the necessary balance from the appro- 
priation made in Senate Bill 680 of the 66th General Assembly. 

Mr. Newman presented his report showing the cost of constructing 
two dormitories, which included financing $400,000.00 through self- 
liquidating bonds. 

No definite Board action was taken on this report. 

Mr. Bohrer advised that according to the Agreement and Vacation 
Ordinance entered into by the State of Illinois and the Board of 
Trustees of the Town of Normal, Illinois, regarding the vacation of 
Twin Grove Street and a certain alley in Block 4 to the 3rd Addition 
to said Town of Normal, the State of Illinois is obligated to stand the 
expense of relocating any public service facilities ; all in connection 
with the construction of self-liquidating dormitories at Illinois State 
Normal University. 

In the construction of the above-mentioned dormitories, a 6" city 
water main in Twin Grove Street was encountered and the architects 
had planned, with the approval from the Water Committee of the Town 
of Normal, to encase, within a tunnel, this water main. 

The President of the Board of Trustees of the Town of Normal 
advised the architects that the Town of Normal desired to have this 
water main relocated either one or two blocks to the south of Grove 
Street. 

Mr. Bohrer moved that the Teachers College Board authorize the 
architects to proceed with necessary steps to have this water main 
relocated on the first street south of the University-owned property, 
and that the Governor be requested to release the necessary funds to 
provide for this relocation of the water main. The motion was sec- 
onded by Mr. Wirtz and unanimously carried. 

350 



PROCEEDINGS 

Chairman Puffer advised that on June 17 he had received a state- 
ment from Schaeffer, Hooton and Wilson for architectural services on 
the Self-Liquidating Project at Northern in the amount of $33,502.49, 
or 4!/2 % of the cost of the building. 

It was brought to the Board's attention that, according to the 
terms of the contract with Schaeffer, Hooton and Wilson, their fee 
would be 3!/2 % of the cost of construction. 

After a thorough discussion, Mrs. Pegelow moved that the state- 
ment presented by Schaeffer, Hooton and Wilson, in the amount of 
$33,502.49, be allowed, subject to a visit by Mr. Lanphier to discuss the 
possibility of reducing the fee to 4 % . The motion was seconded by 
Mr. Wirtz and unanimously carried. 

Chairman Puffer read a letter he had received from Commissioner 
McGrath of the U. S. Office of Education, stating that his office had 
received no letter or communication from any organization protesting 
the approval of Illinois State Normal University for the training of 
teachers of Vocational Agriculture. 

Chairman Puffer advised that the Teachers College Scholarship 
law, as now written, has been rightfully interpreted, that a student 
attending school on such a scholarship is entitled to $80.00 per term 
or semester intsead of $80.00 per school year. 

A new bill is now being drawn up by the Legislative Reference 
Bureau changing this so that a student can receive $80.00 a calendar 
year (beginning approximately September 1), or if he completes his 
studies in three years, he can receive $106.66, or if he completes his 
studies in three and one-half years, he can receive $91.42, making a 
total not to exceed $320.00 for a four-year course. 

President Buzzard advised that all of the Presidents were going 
to attend the School for Executives, to be held in Madison, Wisconsin 
in August, and recommended that Mr. Lanphier be authorized to at- 
tend on behalf of the Teachers College Board. 

Mr. Walker moved that Mr. Lanphier be authorized to attend 
the School for Executives, to be held in Madison, Wisconsin (August 
20-27). The motion was seconded by Mr. Wirtz and unanimously 
carried. 

Mr. Walker moved that the meeting stand adjourned until the 
next regularly scheduled meeting of the Teachers College Board to be 
held in Springfield, Illinois, on Friday, July 21, 1950, in Director 
Puffer's office. The motion was seconded by Mrs. Pegelow, unani- 
mously carried, and the meeting stood adjourned.

PROCEEDINGS 

Mr. Bohrer moved that on Page 11, Paragraph 2 should be 
amended to read as follows : 

"Mr. Bohrer moved that the Teachers College Board author- 
ize the architects to proceed with necessary steps to have this 
water main relocated on the first street south of the University- 
owned property, and that the Governor be requested to release the 
necessary funds to provide for this relocation of the water main 
from the appropriation for acquisition of land. The motion was 
seconded by Mr. Wirtz and unanimously carried." 

The motion was seconded by Mr. Dunn and unanimously carried. 

Mr. Guin moved that the minutes of the meeting of June 26, 1950, 
be approved as amended. The motion was seconded by Mrs. Pegelow 
and unanimously carried. 

Chairman Puffer read a memorandum from the Governor directed 
to "Heads of all Departments, Boards and Commissions" regarding 
budgetary procedures for the next biennium. No official Board action 
was required ; the Chairman read it merely as information to the Board 
members inasmuch as the time is nearing when the budgets for the 
schools will be submitted. 

At the last meeting of the Board, Mr. Lanphier was authorized to 
call upon the firm of Schaeffer, Hooton and Wilson, Architects, for the 
purpose of perhaps getting a reduction of y 2 % for architectural serv- 
ices in connection with the dormitory project at Northern. 

Mr. Lanphier reported that after his discussion with Mr. Schaeffer 
and Mr. Hooton, and after Mr. Schaeffer carefully analyzed the plans 
of both Normal and Northern, he was of the opinion that they were 
entitled to their charge of 4%% at Northern, inasmuch as the plans 
are similar in only the most minor sort of way. 

Mr. Wirtz moved that Mr. Lanphier's report regarding his visit 
with Schaeffer, Hooton and Wilson, in connection with their fee of 
4% % for the dormitory project at Northern, be accepted, and in con- 
sideration of the architect's agreement to accept 3y 2 % on the project 
at Eastern. The motion was seconded by Mr. Guin and unanimously 
carried. 

At the last meeting of the Board, the matter of Dr. Fairchild's 
physical condition and his plan to return to work on July 17 was 
discussed. It was then decided that Dr. Fairchild should not return 
to work until the Board had received a report from the attending 
physician stating that Dr. Fairchild was physically capable of return- 
ing to his duties as President of Illinois State Normal University. 

Mr. Dunn, Chairman of the Advisory Committee for Illinois 
State Normal University, advised he had received a report from the 
attending physician, copy of which was sent to the Chairman of this 
Board, and proceeded to read the report to the members of the Board. 

353 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

The report was to the effect that Dr. Fairehild was physically 
capable of returning to work, provided he got plenty of rest. 

The Board talked informally to Dr. Fairehild regarding his 
physical condition. 

Mr. Wirtz then moved that the Teachers College Board welcome 
Dr. Fairehild back to work as President of Illinois State Normal 
University, effective as of this date, with the request that he make 
every effort to bring full faculty cooperation to the administration of 
the school, and that he relieve himself of his extensive administrative 
duties by delegation. The motion was seconded by Mr. Nickell and 
unanimously carried. 

Mr. Dunn moved that we thank Dr. Larsen for taking on the 
added responsibilities and duties as Acting President of Illinois State 
Normal University during Dr. Fairchild's leave, and for performing 
his duties so well and cooperatively. The motion was seconded by Mr. 
Nickell and unanimously carried. 

Chairman Puffer read to the members of the Board a letter he had 
directed to Dr. Buzzard regarding matters that had been brought to 
his attention concerning Dr. Buzzard's attitude in connection with the 
proposed construction of dormitories at Eastern, which will be on a 
partially self-liquidating basis. 

Dr. Buzzard was questioned as to his willingness to cooperate, and 
it was apparent from Dr. Buzzard's statements that he was willing to 
cooperate. 

Chairman Puffer next read a letter he had received from H. 
Stanley Pickford, Chief Revenue Clerk in the State Treasurer's office, 
regarding the resolutions passed by the Board authorizing the issuance 
of surety bonds in the amounts of $50,000.00, $15,000.00 and $70,000.00 
in favor of the Teachers College Board Revenue Fund of 1950 for 
Illinois State Normal University, Western Illinois State College and 
Northern Illinois State Teachers College respectively ; the premiums to 
be payable from the Operation and Maintenance Accounts of the Resi- 
dence Halls Revenue Bonds of 1950 Fund for Normal and Northern, 
and the Stadium Revenue Bonds of 1950 Fund for Western. 

Mr. Pickford stated that inasmuch as there are no funds in the 
Operation and Maintenance Accounts at any of the three schools, it 
is impossible to pay these premiums and suggested that the Board 
amend the resolutions directing that the premiums be paid from Con- 
tingencies within the construction account. 

In light of the foregoing information, Mr. Dunn moved the adop- 
tion of the following resolution. 

WHEREAS, on April 17, 1950, this Board adopted a resolu- 
tion providing for the issuance of $1,150,000.00 in self-liquidating

CONSIDERATION OF BUSINESS MANAGER AT L S. N. U.

instructed to interview candidates for the position of Business Manager 
at Illinois State Normal University from a list recommended by Lloyd 
Morey, Comptroller of the University of Illinois. 

Dr. Larsen presented a list of five candidates he had interviewed 
and recommended William R. Bokelman for the position, assuming he 
was not to recommend Preston M. Ensign, existing Business Manager, 
for the position. 

Dr. Fairchild was requested to give his views on the matter, who 
advised he had also interviewed some of the candidates that Dr. Larsen 
had and concurred in Dr. Larsen's recommendation, inasmuch as he, 
too, was under the impression that Mr. Ensign was not to be recom- 
mended. 

Mr. Bohrer advised he had just recently learned of a man whom 
he thought would be very capable of filing the position and recom- 
mended Mr. Allan Andrews for the position. 

After a general discussion of Dr. Larsen's and Mr. Bohrer's 
recommendations, Mr. Wirtz moved that Dr. Larsen's recommendation 
of Mr. William R. Bokelman be accepted. The motion was seconded by

Mr. Hammond further advised that the bids on plumbing, heating 
and temperature control totaled $246,471.00 ; this amount being $104,- 
000.00 in excess of bids received for the same trades on the Normal 
Project, an increase which the Division of Architecture and Engineer- 
ing cannot justify ; therefore, the Division of Architecture and Engi- 
neering recommended that the bids on these two trades be rejected, and 
they will readvertise the work involved in these two trades. These bids 
will be received on August 15, 1950.

PROCEEDINGS 

Mr. Schaeffer advised that at the last meeting of the Board the 
associate architects had been instructed to take necessary steps to have 
a water main, which had been encountered in connection with the 
construction of the residence halls at Normal, relocated. They advise 
they have received a proposal from the S. E. McDaniel Company in 
the amount of $5,162.00 for this necessary relocation. 

Mr. Dunn moved that we accept the proposal on the relocation of 
this water main from the S. E. McDaniel Company in the amount of 
$5,162.00 that he be given a contract for the necessary work, and that 
payment due be made out of the land acquisition appropriation which 
has heretofore be approved by the Board. The motion was seconded 
by Mr. Nickell, the roll was called and the vote was as follows : 

Mr. Bohrer, Yea

Mr. Means, Absent 
Mr. Nickell, Yea 
Mrs. Pegelow, Yea 
Mr. Puffer, Yea

Mr. Wirtz, Yea 

The motion was unanimously carried. 

Mr. Schaeffer, associate architect, presented a list of additional 
work involving extra costs in connection with the self-liquidating 
dormitories at Illinois State Normal University. 

The first additional work involved additional telephone conduit 
and a telephone equipment room to provide more trunk lines into 
each building, with switchboard and automatic equipment at an extra 
cost to the Contract for Electrical Work of $1,794.00 and an extra cost 
to the Contract for General Work for the new telephone equipment 
room of $335.00, making a total of $2,129.00. 

Mr. Dunn moved that these additional costs in connection with the 
telephone system be referred to the Advisory Committee of Illinois 
State Normal University with power to act for the Board. The motion 
was seconded by Mr. Guin and unanimously carried. 

The second additional cost involved additional electrical recepta- 
cles of 220-volt capacity in corridors, for floor washing machines, at an 
extra cost to the Contract for Electrical Work of $438.00. 

Mr. Dunn moved that this additional charge of $438.00 for 220- 
volt electrical receptacles also be referred to the Advisory Committee of 

363 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Illinois State Normal University with power to act for the Board. The 
motion was seconded by Mr. Bohrer and unanimously carried. 

The third additional cost involved changing the size of the trans- 
formers from II21/2 KVA to 225 KVA, due to an error by the Associate 
Architects in calculating the load for one building instead of two, at 
an extra cost to the Contract for Electrical Work of $2,069.00. 

Mr. Nickell moved the approval of this additional cost of $2,069.00 
for changing the size of transformers from 112y 2 KVA to 225 KVA. 
The motion was seconded by Mrs. Pegelow and unanimously carried. 

The last additional charge involved providing VonDuprin co- 
ordinating devices on all pairs of Underwriter-labeled doors to permit 
the inactive door to close ahead of the active door, at an extra cost to 
the Contract for General "Work of $363.00. 

Dr. Reavis moved the approval of this additional charge in the 
amount of $363.00 for providing VonDuprin co-ordinating devices on 
all pairs of Underwriter-labeled doors. The motion was seconded by 
Mr. Nickell and unanimously carried. 

There being no further business before the Board in which the 
Architects were interested, they withdrew from the meeting. 

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS 

At a previous meeting of the Board, Thomas McDowell appeared 
before the Board on behalf of himself and six other non-academic 
employees of Northern Illinois State Teachers College who had re- 
ceived advice that they could not remain on the payroll, inasmuch as 
they were unable to pass a satisfactory physical examination, as re- 
quired by the University Retirement System. 

At that time the Board requested that Mr. Lanphier investigate 
the possibility of retaining these employees, due t© various reasons. 

Chairman Puffer read a memorandum he had received from Mr. 
Lanphier advising he had been in touch with the University Retire- 
ment System officials, who agree that there is a moral obligation to 
give these elderly employees further employment, and that, therefore, 
it was Mr. Lanphier's recommendation that these seven individuals be 
certified as sub-standard risks, certification to be effective August 1, 
1950, and not the date of their employment. 

Mr. Wirtz moved that the seven employees of Northern be retained, 
and certified as sub-standard risks, effective August 1, 1950, on the 
basis of Mr. Lanphier's report to Chairman Puffer. The motion was 
seconded by Mr. Guin and unanimously carried. 

Dr. Fairchild and Dr. Larsen advised they would like to have the 
dedication of the Administration Building and the corner stone laying 
of the self-liquidating dormitories on Sunday afternoon, October 22,

1950, and extended to all members and interested parties a most cordial 
invitation to be present at such ceremonies. 

There being no further business before the Board, Mr. Wirtz moved 
that the meeting be adjourned until the next regular meeting, which is 
scheduled for September 25, 1950, at Eastern Illinois State College, 
Charleston, Illinois.

5. Janitor I : successor to Woolever, resigned. 

III. ORGANIZATION 

A. The results of using the first day of duty in the college year as 
"Faculty Day", as has been the plan for four years, brings the 
conclusion that one or two additional days could profitably be 
used for an extension of faculty orientation. A detailed plan 
for such service will be presented later in the year. 

B. Discussion of the development of more democratic administra- 
tion of the college is producing markedly desirable discussion 
by and ensuing action on the part of Eastern's faculty. We 

374 



PROCEEDINGS 

hope that the current year will afford opportunity for a func- 
tioning participation of the faculty in the solution of admin- 
istrative problems. 

IV. CURRICULUM 

A. Plans are progressing towards the offering of graduate courses 
in the summer school of 1951. A definite program will be 
submitted in due time to the Graduate Study Committee of the 
Board for consideration. 

V. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

A. Permanent Improvements 

1. Furniture for the Booth Library is still "trickling" in. It 
is hoped that inspection by the Board at the September 
meeting will win commendation for the Division of Archi- 
tecture and Engineering, and in particular for Mr. Joseph 
F. Booton, Chief Designer. 

2. The current status of the project on Site Preparation (of 
campus) and Athletic Fields, is open for Board inspection. 

3. "Trailerville" has been moved westward, and bull dozers 
are busily excavating for the new Residence Halls. 

4. Plans and specifications for the Home Management House 
project are now completed and being offered for bids on 
construction by the Division of Architecture and Engineer- 
ing. 

B. Budget request for 1951-53 

Under date of August 12, 1950, Eastern filed with the Chair- 
man of the Budget Committee, the following request for Per- 
manent Improvements for the biennium 1951-53 : 

"In keeping with Governor Stevenson's declaration that only dire 
needs for Permanent Improvements can find a place in the 1951-53 
budget, Eastern submits the project for a new Training School Build- 
ing and substantiates the degree of need as follows : 

1. (a) Training School Building $1,500,000.00 

(b) Furnishings and equipment for 

Training School Building 225,000.00 

(c) Land purchase for portion of Training School site 185,000.00 



$1,910,000.00 



(1) The present building is NOT fireproof . The wooden stairways 
are an additional fire hazard. The electrical wiring is both inadequate 
and dangerous because of insulation deterioration. The floors have 
pulled away from the walls, indicating unsound structural conditions. 
The window space is inadequate. The sanitary and toilet facilities need 

375 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

replacement. A third floor corridor and an attic office function as 
kitchen and dining room for the Federal hot-lunch project. No space 
is available for (a) nursery school, needed in training Home Eco- 
nomics teachers, (b) a kindergarten for training elementary school 
teachers, (c) a play room and gymnasium for the required health edu- 
cation program, or (d) shop, laboratory or kitchen for enrichment of 
the school program. This building, constructed in 1911, is markedly 
inferior to the average elementary school building of our better school 
systems. 

(2) The develpment of a program in Elementary Education, now 
the most critical area in the training of public school teachers, makes a 
new and modern Training School building a necessity, particularly 
under the growing pressure of offering a fifth year of preparation in 
this area. The contemplated building will house (a) nursery school, 
(b) kindergarten, (c) elementary school of Grades 1-6 inclusive, and 
(d) junior high school of Grades 7-9 inclusive, together with the facili- 
ties expected in a modern Training School building. 

(3) The college needs the block lying east of the Heating Plant, 
bounded by Grant, Ninth, Hayes and Seventh Streets, and the three 
houses in the northeast corner of the Bishop Heights addition, to com- 
plete the site for the Training School Building. Nearness to the college 
buildings and sufficient building and play space, make this addition of 
land highly desirable. 

2. (a) Vocational Education Building $1,500,000.00 

(b) Furnishings and equipment for 

Vocational Education Building 300,000.00 



$1,800,000.00 

The proposed Vocational Education Building will house (1) In- 
dustrial Arts, (2) Home Economics and (3) Business Education. Each 
of these areas is becoming increasingly functional in public education. 
The building housing Industrial Arts and Home Economics was built 
in 1927, as a reduction from proposed plans, and is not well-con- 
structed. These departments have now outgrown their allotted space, 
and the 1927 equipment is now inferior to that of many high schools. 
Business Education, housed in third floor West, Main Building, has 
overflowed into hallways for necessary laboratory work. Courses in 
Distributive Education cannot be offered for lack of room facilities. 
These three areas, if expanded in a commodious building, can then 
offer the short course vocational training now needed badly in eastern 
Illinois. Like the Training School Building, the situation in these voca- 
tional areas presents a dire need for a new and ample building. 

Total Training School Building $1,910,000.00 

Total Vocational Education Building 1,800,000.00 



GRAND TOTAL $3,710,000.00

Work was again offered, as last summer, at eight off-campus 
centers during the 1950 summer. The centers, courses offered, 
instructors, and enrollments are here presented to indicate 
that this service met a real need.

3. Current Enrollment 

Although figures are neither due or completely available at 
this time covering the enrollment for the first semester of the 
current 1950-1951 school year, it may be of interest to know 
that early registration has passed the 2400 mark and it now 
appears that the final figure of 2438 one year ago will be ex- 
ceeded. The freshman class is fully as large as the one of a 
year ago, which is encouraging if we look to the future of 
interest in teacher education. 

It is of further interest to note that the number of children in 
the Metcalf Elementary School, including those in the Metcalf 
Building and the four additional rooms housed for the first 
time in the new Special Education Building, is the largest in 
the history of that school. In addition, there will be recorded, 
when total figures are finally presented, the enrollment in the 
Special Education Building in the areas of the physically 
handicapped (crippled, cardiac, and epileptic cases), partially- 
sighted up to the blind, hard-of-hearing up to the deaf, all types 
of speech difficulties, mentally retarded, and the socially mal- 
adjusted. 

The enrollment in University High School, although heavily re- 
stricted, has gone slightly beyond our stated limitation of 350. 
In the high school, as well as in the elementary area, and like- 
wise in special education, there is need for a great deal in the 
way of laboratory school facilities to handle the increasingly 
large number of student teachers. With a graduating class 
that will be very close to 600 in June and August combined, it 
is obvious that off-campus student teaching facilities will not 
solve all of the problem. There are many more elementary and 
high school pupils seeking admission than it is possible to 
accommodate. 

4. Current Extension Program 

As stated later in this report, there has been some reorganiza- 
tion of extension work resulting from the death of Mr. Clar- 
ence Orr, Director of Extension Services for the last fifteen 
years. The new director of this work, Dr. L. W. Miller, has 
been able to extend the offerings until it now appears that there 
will be approximately 16 classes offered in 14 centers, with the 
usual heavy demand for this work in each of these centers. 
A complete report with registration in each course in the 
various centers will be included in the next Board Report. 

5. Annual Report 

Due to the necessity of obtaining figures that are not available 
due to a shift in offices and other complications on the campus 
at this time, the annual fiscal report, including total cost of 

379 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

operation, number of students on an equivalency basis, and 
per capita cost, will be included in the next report to the Board. 

6. Summer Session Scholarships 

As a matter of record, the attention of the Teachers College 
Board is called to a list of scholarship students attending- the 
1950 summer session which has been sent to the Coordinator for 
approval by the Chairman and Secretary of the Board. Clear- 
ance of this list will result in an eventual transfer of funds by 
the State Treasurer from the General Revenue Account to 
the Income Fund of Illinois State Normal University to the 
extent of $1782.25, with an additional $492.50 transferred to 
the Illinois State Normal University Trust Fund for Activity 
and Graduation fees, Graduation fees amounting to $90.00. 
It is recommended that the submitting of this list and the 
transfer of funds be approved by the Teachers College Board. 
It is understood that the transfer will be made when sufficient 
funds are available for such transfer from the State General 
Eevenue Account. 

7. Graduates (August 1950) 

a. The students whose names appear below completed require- 
ments for the degree of Master of Science in Education at 
the close of the summer session, August 11, 1950. It is 
recommended that they be awarded the degree of Master of 
Science in Education and be granted the diploma of Illinois 
State Normal University.

1. Death 

Mr. Clarence Orr, Associate Professor of Social Science, died 
on August 15, 1950, after serving as a member of the faculty of 
Illinois State Normal University since 1929. Mr. Orr had given 
a great deal of time to handling extension courses and in 1935 
was appointed Director of Extension Services and very suc- 
cessfully handled the organization of off-campus course offer- 
ings of the University since that time. He was very active in 
educational circles and in local community life, and his long 
and valuable service to the University will continue to be 
appreciated.

a. Miss Viola Boekelheide, Instructor in Music, for the school 
year September through May, 1950-1951, in order to do 
further graduate work at the University of Minnesota. This

not been on the staff long enough to qualify for a sabbatical 
leave. 

4. Additional Assignments and Reappointments 

a. The name of Mr. John Carey was omitted from the listing 
of staff members for the 1950 summer session in the Board 
Report of March 27, 1950. Mr. Carey should be listed as 
receiving $465.00 for each of two months (July and August) 
or a total of $930.00 for the summer session. 

b. Mr. James Goff was omitted from the second of the two 

months of the summer session because of his not having 
been included in the listing of teachers in the March 27 
Board Report. This later assignment of Mr. Goff should be 
approved for one month at his regular salary of $420.00, 
and this amount is recommended for work already done 
during the month of August. 

c. Mr. Preston M. Ensign, as Business Manager at $515.00 per 
month, or an annual (twelve months) salary of $6180.00, 
effective from August 1, 1950, following a temporary and 
special provision made for a thirty-day appointment at the 
meeting of the Teachers College Board on June 26 and

5. Changes in Position and Salary 

a. Mr. Douglas Bey, Assistant Professor of Matematics in the

be made effective as of July 1, 1950. The time as to when the 
appointment was effective was omitted from the June 26, 
1950 Board Report. ■ 

c. Because of increased responsibilities and ability to give

month on a twelve months basis, effective from August 1, 
1950.

ceiving but with one less class in her teaching load. 

e. Through error, the salary of Dr. Christine P. Ingram was 
listed in the March 27, 1950, Board Report as $500.00 per 
month for each of two months in the summer session. This 
salary should have been $525.00 per month, or $1050.00 for 
the summer session. 

f. Dr. L. W. Miller, Professor of Biological Science, to be 
named as Director of University Field Services, to take the 
place of Mr. Clarence Orr, formerly Director of University

plus two months of summer session. This should be effective 
September 1, 1950. Dr. Miller will still continue to handle

changed to the full amount of $150.00. 

i. Mr. Lloyd E. Eichert's name as a Faculty Assistant, listed

IV. THE ORGANIZATION 

1. Division of University Field Services 

Following the death of Mr. Clarence Orr, previously mentioned 
in this report, it has seemed wise to change the name of the 

397 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Extension Services area in which Mr. Orr worked to that of 
University Field Services, to which area Dr. L. W. Miller is 
being appointed as Director. Like Mr. Orr, Dr. Miller will be 
giving a major portion of his time to teaching but will need to 
organize the extension courses and other activities in relation 
to the public schools. This merely means a grouping together 
of services already being rendered that are beyond those of 
extension classes. 

V. THE CURRICULUM— No Report 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

1. Progress on New Buildings 

a. Administration Building 

This building is not completed as yet but on September 9 
the last of the offices was moved into the new quarters and 
for the most part we are able to operate under normal con- 
ditions. There still remains considerable work to be done in 
completing part of the building but with the cooperation of 
the contractors, we are able to work as they finish their con- 
tracts. It is hoped that the building may be entirely com- 
pleted and formally turned over to the University and the 
Teachers College Board by November 1. 

It is planned to dedicate the Administration Building on 
Sunday evening, October 22, in connection with the dedica- 
tion of the Special Education Building and the cornerstone 
ceremonies of the new dormitories earlier in the afternoon. 
The meeting of the Teachers College Board on Monday, 
October 23, will be held in the Administration Building in 
the Board Room. 

b. Special Education Building 

It now seems doubtful if the Special Education Building 
will be ready for complete occupancy much before January 
1, 1951. However, through the cooperation of the contrac- 
tors, we are able to carry out our plans and obligations to 
house part of the work in special education and four ele- 
mentary grades in the west half of the three stories of the 
main structure. Moving into these limited quarters began 
on September 14 and despite the failure of furniture to 
arrive, a sufficient number of desks and other equipment 
has been located to make operation possible. The other half 
of the front section, the entire north wing, and the medical 
or health service units will be turned over to us in the 
order named with the entire structure completed and in 

398 



PROCEEDINGS 

use we hope by the end of the calendar year. The building 
will be far enough along so that at the time of the dedication 
on October 22 it will be possible to see some of it in action 
and most of it in structure. 

c. New Dormitories 

The two self-liquidating residence halls, one for men and 
the other for women, seem to be progressing in satisfactory 
manner with the work completed up to and into the first 
floor. Progress seems to be on schedule and, barring un- 
foreseen delays, we still hope to be able to make use of 
these buildings in September 1951. 

d. Addition to Fell Hall 

The final preliminary drawings have been completed and 
approved by those on the campus responsible for reactions 
as to needs. These plans have now been submitted to mem- 
bers of the Teachers College Board for their approval so 
that working drawings may be started immediately by the 
Associate Architects. 

2. Improvement of the Campus 

With funds available for site improvement, as well as gen- 
eral campus landscaping, a first contract has been let to the 
John Felmley Company for the work around the Admin- 
istration Building, including the shift of Fell Gate north of 
the present location at the point of entrance into the east- 
west main walk of the University, the construction of a 
parking area back of the Administration Building, and 
other needed improvements in that same general area. 
Other contracts will be let to complete the work throughout 
the campus and the construction of a west gate to match 
the present Fell Gate on the east side of the campus. Work 
will also need to be done in the area of the Special Educa- 
tion Building. It is believed that ample funds are available 
for that much of the general campus improvement program. 
If it is possible to go further with the program, this will be 
done at a point south from the present entrance of Old 
Main. 

3. Building Repairs 

a. Wiring of Metcalf Elementary School 

The largest single project being undertaken at the present 
time is that of re-wiring the Metcalf Elementary School. 
The allocation in Contractual Services of $30,000.00, pre- 
sumably based upon accurate figures of the contractor, who, 
incidentally, was the low bidder on the project when bids 

399 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

were opened, proved to be insufficient since the lowest bid 
was $38,991.00. By consultation with the contractor, the 
Division of Architecture and Engineering, and University 
authorities, it has been found possible to reduce this figure 
to approximately $35,000.00. Additional funds will be sup- 
plied from our regular, though limited, accounts so as to 
make possible the completion of this project which has been 
attempted in four different bienniums and has failed be- 
cause each time the bids ran higher than anyone dared esti- 
mate. 

VII. AUXILIARY ENTERPRISES 

1. Reports Delayed 

The annual reports on the auxiliary enterprises, including 
cafeteria, Fell Hall, and Smith Hall, will be a part of the next 
Board Report. 

VIII. STUDENT LIFE— No Report 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

1. Illinois Education Association Workshop 

It was the privilege of Illinois State Normal University to 
serve as host to the Annual Workshop of the Illinois Education 
Association on September 8, 9, and 10, when over two hundred 
delegates lived and worked for three days here on the campus. 
This same meeting was held at Northern State Teachers College 
at DeKalb a year ago and it is believed that this is one of the 
services that the teachers colleges can render to the teaching 
profession in Illinois. This was not a matter of free entertain- 
ment since board and room were paid for by the delegates. 

X. SUMMARY 

Consideration and favorable action by the Teachers College Board 
is requested and will be appreciated on the following recommenda- 
tions : 

1. Approval of the scholarship list and the transfer of funds cov- 
ering scholarships for the summer session. 

2. Granting of bachelor's and master's degrees and diplomas to 
those persons graduating on August 11, 1950. 

3. Acceptance of the resignations of Miss Helen Dooley, Dr. Mag- 
dalen Eichert, Mrs. Clara B. Merrifield, Miss Ruth H. Rich-

VIII. STUDENT LIFE 

No report. 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

We are happy to report that more students have registered in the 
fall of 1950 to major in the foiir-year elementary curriculum than 
any of the other four-year curriculums with the exception of men's 
physical education. This is due, we believe, to a constant flow of 
information by faculty members in which the need, advantages, 
and salaries in the elementary schools is placed before students. 

X. SUMMARY 

The approval of the State Teachers College Board is requested 
for the following recommendations : 

A. The list of Normal School Scholarship students for the First 
Summer Term 1950.

II. FACULTY 

1. Leave of Absence 

Mr. Rodney Anderson, assistant professor, Department of 
Mathematics, for the time of his induction into the Army Air 
Force. Mr. Anderson is an officer, veteran of World War II. He 
re-entered the service on August 25, 1950. 

2. Resignations 

Dr. Wayne Christeson, head of the Department of Music, to ac- 
cept a similar position at the teachers college at Florence, 
Alabama. In the board report of June 26, 1950, a complete 
statement of his situation was presented. The members of the 
department as well as the administration feel that his resig- 
nation to accept another position is the best solution to the 
problem. 

Mr. Asa Berlin, assistant professor, Department of Speech, to 
accept a more lucrative position. Mr. Berlin was employed dur- 
ing July, following the June board meeting and his employ- 
ment had not yet been formally approved by the Board. We 
are reporting this only as a matter of record. Mr. Berlin was 
recommended by the Northwestern University Department of 
Speech. This department also recommended the second position 
to him. 

3. Change of Status 

(a) Dr. A. Neil Annas, associate professor, Department of 
Music, as acting head for the year 1950-1951. The mem- 
bers of the department have indicated their desire to work 
with Dr. Annas during this year. Dr. Annas served as 
head previously and will retire from his teaching duties 
in August, 1951. 

(b) Miss Coral Matthews, kindergarten assistant at the Mc- 
Murry Laboratory School, was employed as faculty as-

sistant at a salary of $3150 for nine months, this 
rank to be changed to that of instructor at a salary of 
$3420 should she receive her master's degree from the 
University of Chicago by September 1. We now have a 
statement from the University to this effect and we are 
reporting as a matter of record that Miss Matthews is 
classified as instructor at a salary of $3420 for nine months 
beginning in September. 

(c) As a matter of information for the Board, we wish to 
report that Mr. Harvey Feyerherm, assistant professor, 
Department of Biological Sciences, whose appointment 
was formally approved at the June 26 meeting, was 
awarded his doctorate by the University of Iowa in 
August. 

(d) Dr. Frederick Weed, assistant professor, Department of 
Social Sciences, whose appointment was formally ap- 
proved by the Board at the June 26 meeting, was granted 
a leave of absence for military service in July, and after 
reporting to Army headquarters, was again placed on the 
inactive list. Dr. Weed began his work at the college on 
September 11. We are reporting this as a matter of record 
only. 

(e) Mr. Ralph McKinzie, assistant professor, Department of 
Physical Education for Men, regularly employed for nine 
months at a salary of $4500, will receive salary for 9y 2 
months in order to assist with football practice. He began 
his duties this autumn on September 1. 

4. Military Status of Faculty Members 

A check of the teaching members of the staff at Northern re- 
veals that at present, we have 19 faculty persons who are on 
the inactive lists of the services. All served as officers in World 
War II and their status now is not known but should any of 
these be called into the service, we shall probably need to re- 
place the majority of them. Following are the names and 
departments of these persons :

V. THE CURRICULUM 
No report. 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

The following will give members of the Board a picture of the 
present status of permanent improvements on the campus. 

Williston Hall 

The rehabilitation of the toilets will probably not be completed 
until about January 1. Plumbing fixtures are in short supply and 
as the building is being occupied, we will permit them to rehabili- 
tate but one toilet room at a time. This will be done as the fixtures 
arrive. The contractor has assured us that he will complete the 
project as quickly as possible. There is no definite information 
relative the completion date of the fireproof stairways. Every- 
thing is being done to make the areas ready for the installations. 
Progress on this work will be dependent upon the delivery of 
steel. 

Heating Plant 

It will be another three months before the work in the heating 
plant will be completed, but the work has progressed to the point 

417 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

where we can use it. The work that will have to be done to com- 
plete the heating plant will not interfere with the operation of the 
boilers. 

Library 

Work on the new library is abont four weeks behind schedule at 
the present time. Delay has been caused by the lack of cement 
and a delay in the delivery of steel. The contractor feels, however, 
that unless we have an extremely cold winter, and unless there 
is a prolonged delay in the arrival of materials, he will have 
the library completed by September 1, 1951. 

McMurry Laboratory School 

The situation at the McMurry Laboratory School is similar to that 
at Williston Hall in that the completion date is unknown. Steel 
for the stairways is hard to get, and until the stairways arrive, 
no completion date can be set. 

Men's Residence Hall 

Even though there has been a delay in the preliminary work, the 
contractor still feels that he will have the building completed by 
September 1, 1951, to the extent that it can be occupied although 
there may be some work that will have to be finished after the 
building is in use. 

Industrial Arts Building 

The contract has been let for the rehabilitation of the Industrial 
Arts Building and the contractor assures us that he will begin work 
on the project immediately. The firm having this contract is the 
same firm which has the contract for the fireproofing of both 
Williston Hall and the McMurry Laboratory School and he will 
be able to work on the Industrial Arts Building when not working 
on the fireproofing project. 

Athletic Areas 

We have been given every assurance that the athletic areas will be 
available for our use in the spring of 1951. We are now using a 
portion of the north campus for football practice and the blacktop 
surfacing for the volley ball courts and other areas is being in- 
stalled at the present time. 

We are negotiating with the contractor regarding the repair of the 
new tennis courts which as yet are in an unsatisfactory condition. 
The fencing for the tennis courts has not yet arrived. The con- 
tractor expects to complete the installation, however, this fall. This 
includes the football field which at the present time is not accept- 
able because of the weeds growing on it. A baseball field is being 
constructed at the present time on the north campus athletic area.

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

Placement of 1950 Graduates 

Following the general trend, it is interesting to note that of the 
354 graduates of the Class of 1950, 63 were elementary school 
majors, all of whom were placed in teaching positions. Our place- 
ment bureau received 993 calls for elementary teachers ! Of the 291 

419 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

high school majors, 118 were placed in high school teaching posi- 
tions and a number were placed in elementary positions, while still 
others entered graduate schools, some married, and others are 
doing other types of work. We are, of course, stressing everywhere 
possible the urgent need for elementary teachers. This need will be 
acute for a number of years to come. Approximately one-half of 
our freshmen this autumn will be majoring in the elementary 
division. 

Additional Staff 

There are still a number of academic positions to be filled that 
have already been approved by the Board. However, we have 
been unable to fill them because there has been no one qualified 
for the positions at the salaries we could offer. For non-academic 
employees, there are a number of positions that have been certified 
but we are unable to get them filled through civil service channels. 

X. SUMMARY. 

Action is requested on the following : 

1. Acceptance of the list of August, 1950 graduates. 

2. Approval of the leave of absence granted to Mr. Rodney 
Anderson. 

3. Acceptance of the resignations of Dr. Christeson and Mr. 
Berlin. 

4. Approval of the change of status for Dr. A. Neil Annas for the 
college year 1950-1951.

MEETING OF STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Eastern Illinois State College 
Charleston, Illinois 

September 24-25, 1950 

The regularly scheduled meeting of the Teachers College Board 
and the college Presidents convened at 7 :30 P.M. Sunday evening, 
September 24, 1950, in the Mary Josephine Booth Library Building. 
Noble J. Puffer, Chairman of the Board and Director of the Depart- 
ment of Registration and Education, presided. 

Chairman Puffer called the meeting to order and roll call was 
taken. 

The following members were present : 

Dr. Noble J. Puffer, Chairman 

Mr. Joseph F. Bohrer 

Mr. Richard F. Dunn 

Mr. Russell L. Guin 

Mr. Ira M. Means 

Mrs. Helen Rose Pegelow 

Dr. William C. Reavis 

The following members were absent : 

Dr. Vernon L. Nickell, Secretary 
Dr. Preston Bradley 
Mr. Lewis M. Walker 
Mr. William W. Wirtz 

Also present were : 

Dr. Robert G. Buzzard, President 
Eastern Illinois State College 

Dr. R. W. Fairchild, President 
Illinois State Normal University 

Dr. Frank A. Beu, President 
Western Illinois State College 

Dr. Leslie A. Holmes, President 
Northern Illinois State Teachers College 

Mr. Charles G. Lanphier, Co-ordinator 
Department of Registration and Education 
Springfield, Illinois 

The first matter of business before the Board was the approval of 
the minutes of the meeting of July 21, 1950. 

421 



TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 

Mr. Dunn moved that the minutes of the meeting of July 21, 1950, 
be approved as submitted. The motion was seconded by Mr. Guin and 
unanimously carried. 

On the subject of minutes, Mr. Bohrer moved that the Co-ordina- 
tor, within ten days after the Teachers College Board has approved the 
minutes of the prior meeting of this Board, send to the Librarian of 
each college or university under the Board's jurisdiction six copies of 
said minutes, which copies shall be kept by said Librarian and made 
available for the use of any person interested therein. The motion was 
seconded by Mrs. Pegelow and unanimously carried. 

MR. LAWRENCE RINALDO 

Mr. Lawrence Rinaldo, General Representative of the Illinois 
Council of State Employee Local Unions, had requested permission to 
appear before the Board and present certain changes in the Standard 
Policy Agreement for the consideration of the Board. 

Mr. Rinaldo, together with the local representative of Eastern, 
appeared before the Board and presented, on behalf of the Illinois 
Council of State Employee Local Unions, five changes to the existing 
Standard Policy Agreement. 

Each change was discussed individually but briefly, and it seemed 
to be the consensus of opinion that the requested changes should be 
discussed more in detail. In view of this, Mr. Bohrer moved that the 
changes be referred to the Presidents for further consideration, and 
that they report their combined opinion to the Board at the next meet- 
ing, at which time the Board will act on the changes. The motion was 
seconded by Dr. Reavis and unanimously carried. 

Mr. Rinaldo thanked the Board for allowing him to appear before 
them on behalf of the entire Council, and assured them that the Council 
would continue to cooperate as they have in the past. 

VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE SITUATION AT I.S.N.U. 

In the absence of Secretary Nickell, Chairman Puffer reported 
that Secretary Nickell had received a letter from the officials at Wash- 
ington denying Illinois State Normal University the right to train 
Vocational Agriculture teachers under the Smith-Hughes Act in the 
light of the report submitted by the Board of Vocational Education. 
They further advised that if additional data could be furnished, the 
matter might be reconsidered. 

It was the consensus of opinion that the matter should not be 
dropped entirely at this time. 

CONTRACTS WITH CHANCE S. HILL 

At a previous meeting of the Board, the matter of a contract with 
Chance S. Hill at Eastern Illinois State College for the resurfacing of 
the tennis courts was discussed, and it was the opinion of the Board 

422 



PROCEEDINGS 

that no further contracts should be entered into with Mr. Hill until 
the authorities at Eastern are satisfied with the progress and character 
of the work. 

Both Mr. Lanphier and Mr. Gregg made a report on this situation, 
which has caused so much argument and misunderstanding between 
interested parties, but regardless of the fact that both Mr. Lanphier 
and Mr. Gregg stated they felt the work would be completed to the 
satisfaction of all concerned, the Board unanimously agreed not to sign 
any pending contracts with Chance S. Hill, at least for the present 
time. 

ANNUAL REPORTS FROM PRESIDENTS 

Chairman Puffer raised the question as to the advisability of each 
President making an Annual Report, similar to the report made by 
Dr. Beu. 

After a lengthy discussion, Mr. Guin moved that a committee, 
consisting of the Presidents and two Board Members, confer on the 
matter of making an Annual Report, and make recommendations to 
the Board, either before the end of this meeting or at the next Board 
meeting. The motion was seconded by Mrs. Pegelow and unanimously 
carried. 

The Committee appointed consisted of Mr. Guin, Mrs. Pegelow, 
Dr. Buzzard, Dr. Fairchilcl, Dr. Beu and Dr. Holmes. 

REPORT OF POLICY COMMITTEE 

Dr. Reavis, Chairman of the Committee on Policies, distributed 
copies of the Committee's Report. 

The report was discussed in detail and several changes and addi- 
tions were made, after which Dr. Reavis moved that the report of 
the Committee on Policies be adopted by the Board, subject to such 
editing as would be required to clarify the meaning, and that 1,000 
copies be published, in suitable form, including the salary schedule, 
for distribution to the faculties of the four colleges and universities 
and for such use as the members of the Board think advisable. The 
motion was seconded by Mr. Bohrer and unanimously carried. 

REPORT OF SALARY SCHEDULE COMMITTEE 

Mr. Guin, Chairman of the Salary Schedule Committee, reported 
that his committee had met with the Joint Faculty Salary Committee 
for the purpose of studying the present Salary Schedule and getting 
the recommendations of the Joint Faculty Salary Committee in order 
that the Salary Schedule Committee could, in turn, make recom- 
mendations to the Teachers College Board. 

The recommended Salary Schedule of both the Salary Schedule 
Committee and the Joint Faculty Salary Committee is as follows :

TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 



A PROPOSAL TO REPLACE SECTION B-5 OF THE PRESENT 
SALARY SCHEDULE FOR THE FOUR ILLINOIS COLLEGES 

For each rank there shall be three blocks, A, B, and C. Increases 
are automatic for the lower Block C, partially automatic or automatic 
increments that can be denied for Block B, and on merit for Block A. 

Advancement in the last two blocks is to be based upon the judg- 
ment of the President and his faculty representatives selected to advise 
on salaries and promotions. 

Increments for those persons in Block A shall be given only for 
reasons agreed upon in individual cases by the President and the 
faculty representative, and these reasons shall be presented in writing

Considerable discussion ensued, following which Mr. Guin moved 
that the Board adopt the Salary Schedule as presented by the Salary 
Schedule Committee, together with the explanatory statements denning

by Mrs. Pegelow and unanimously carried. 

BUDGETS 

Mr. Dunn, Chairman of the Budget Committee of the Teachers 
College Board, made the following report : 

TO THE MEMBERS OF THE TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD 
OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS : 

On Wednesday, September 20, 1950, the members of the Budget 
Committee of the Teachers College Board met at Illinois State Normal 
University, Normal, Illinois. The purpose of this meeting was to hear 
and give consideration to the operating financial budgets of : 

1. The Teachers College Board 

2. Eastern Illinois State College 

3. Illinois State Normal University 

4. Western Illinois State College 

5. Northern Illinois State Teachers College 

for the biennium July 1, 1951 to July 1, 1953. 

In its deliberations, the Committee had the assistance of Board 
member Joseph F. Bohrer for a part of the committee session. 

The budgets were presented by Charles G. Lanphier for the 
Teachers College Board and by the Presidents of the respective colleges 
and universities. 

The Committee ascertained that in each instance the budget 
requests had been assembled upon the basis of departmental estimates 
which in many instances were in turn based upon practical suggestions 
from architects, engineers and contractors. 

In the progress of consideration, each member of the Committee 
and Mr. Bohrer frequently and fully questioned items appearing in 
the respective budgets and, at times, such questioning developed con- 
structive suggestions. Changes were recommended and accomplished 
in each budget presented. 

At the close of the Committee session, the final figures disclosed a 
general increase in each college budget and for the first time pre- 
sented the Teachers College Board budget as a separate and distinct 
item from that of the Department of Registration and Education. 
This change is with the approval of the Director.
