This Day in Daily History

Length of school year shortened because of WWII

Jan. 14, 1942 — The University landed on the bandwagon of war-speeded education with a resounding thump as a precedent-breaking Deans’ Conference approved the first of a series of drastic changes in University wartime policy, calling for:

 

– Shortening of final examination periods

— Omission of spring vacation

– Movement of Commencement to May 30

 

Unverified and often wild rumors which had swept the campus for days were thus brought to an end as Frank Robbins, assistant to the president, stressed that all of the recommendations of the New University Ward Board, which received the approval of the Deans, must still obtain formal acknowledgement by the Board of Regents.

 

Corrections

A photograph on page 3 of Tuesday’s edition of the Daily should have said Joseph E. Swift, III plays “What’s Goin’ On.”

 

An infograph on Page 10A of yesterday’s edition of the Daily should have said Lester Abram missed 13 games and Graham Brown missed 9. The infograph also should have said Michigan State will play Wisconsin on Sunday.
