REVISION O F REGULATIONS C O N C E R N I N G PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS
FOR ENTERING STUDENTS ( R E V I S I O N O F T H E GENERAL RULES
C O N C E R N I N G UNIVERSITY ORGANIZATION A N D P R O C E D U R E )(12) For many years, new students entering the University have been required to receive a physical examination at the beginning of their first term. In view of greatly increased enrolments and the generally higher level of health of today's students, it is now felt by Health Service personnel that better health care may be furnished (in terms of staff time) to students who need it by making the requirement optional at the campus level, Therefore, I recommend that Section 9(d) of The General Rules Concerning
University Organization and Procedure be amended as follows (parenthetical material to be deleted; underlined material to be added):
All new students entering the University (are) may be required at the beginning of their first (semester) term to receive a physical examination in a form prescribed by the Director of Health Services at the appropriate University campus.
This change will permit campus variations in the requirement of physical examinations for entering students.
The Chancellors at the three campuses and the University Senates Conference concur in this proposed amendment.

BOARD OF TRUSTEESO n m o t i o n of M r. H o w a r d, t h i s r e v i s i o n w a s a p p r o v e d. M r. F o r s y t h asked to be recorded as voting no.
S T U D E N T I N D E B T E D N E S S T O T H E UNIVERSITY(13) On July 14, 1915, the Board of Trustees adopted a regulation providing that any student who is in debt to the University at the end of any semester would not be permitted to register again or to receive an official statement of his credits "until his indebtedness has been discharged."
The University Counsel has advised that the quoted language is subject to the interpretation that a student who has an indebtedness to the University discharged in formal bankruptcy proceedings would thereupon become eligible to register or receive a transcript of credits. T h e Counsel further advises that a discharge in bankruptcy does not constitute payment of a debt and does not cancel or extinguish the bankrupt's obligation, but simply bars any remedy for its enforcement or collection through the courts. The debt remains as a moral obligation.
It has been proposed that the Board of Trustees' action of 1915 be amended to make clear that unpaid obligations of students to the University continue to be a disqualification for registration and for receipt of transcripts, notwithstanding the discharge of the indebtedness to the University in bankruptcy proceedings.
Accordingly, I recommend that the July 14, 1915, action of the Board of
Trustees be amended to read as follows (new matter underlined and deleted matter interlineated) :
"A student who is in debt to the University at the end of any semester academic term shall not be permitted to register in the University again and shall not be entitled to receive an official statement or transcript of bis-credits from the Registrar until -bis- the indebtedness has been discharged paid or suitable arrangements for payment have been made."

CHANGES IN POLICY AND RULES NONACADEMIC
Chapter X I I I — Vacation and Personal Leave(14) Public Act 77-1823 effective October 1, 1972, provides that where there has been a break in State service, the vacation benefits shall be computed as though all previous State service which qualified for earning of vacation and personal leave benefits is continuous with present service and that the future earning rate for such benefits shall be based on total service.
T o comply with this Act, the University Director of Nonacademic Personnel and the Vice President for Financial Affairs recommend that the following revisions be made in " C " in the policy section of Chapter X I I I of Policy and Rules — Nonacademic — "Vacation and Personal Leave" (new material is underscored;
deleted material is lined through) :
C. The amount of Vacation and Personal Leave earned is based upon the hours in pay status and the number of service years completed^ without break of service.
1. Where there has been no break in service, the service years of an employee equal the sum of that employee's pre-July 1, 1967, service years computed under the method used for that employee prior to July 1, 1967, plus his post-July 1, 1967, service years. T h e post-July 1, 1967, service years will be arrived at by dividing 2080 (8-hour day) or 1950 (7i/£hour day) into the sum of his total straight time hours in pay status after July 1, 1967, plus his hours in pay status after July 1, 1967, because of (1) term, semester, or holiday breaks, (2) unpaid holidays, and (3) unpaid leave caused by injury or illness provided, however, that such lost time credited in any one calendar year may not exceed 200 hours.
2. Where there has been a break in service, the service years shall be computed as though all previous State of Illinois service which qualified for earning of Vacation and Personal Leave benefits is continuous with 1973] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 227 present service, i.e.. service during each separate period of employment.
whether University or other State of Illinois service, is computed as described under C, 1 above, and all periods are added together to arrive at total service. This provision is effective Uctober 1, 1V/^. It applies to the tuture earning rate ot eligible employees on the University rolls on this effective date, as well as to those who enter or reenter University service after that date!
(The present paragraphs C2, C3, and C4 will be renumbered C3, C4, and C5, respectively.) These revisions have been endorsed by the University Nonacademic Employee Advisory Committee and the Nonacademic Personnel Advisory Committee.
Chapter X V I I •— Statutory and Interinstitutional Benefits Since January 1, 1972, coverage of benefits under the Unemployment Compensation Act has been extended to University employees.
The University Director of Nonacademic Personnel proposes the following change in the policy section of Chapter X V I I, "Statutory and Interinstitutional Benefits" of the Policy and Rules — Nonacademic to make it clear that the rules and procedures in that chapter are not limited to benefits under the State Universities Retirement System and the University Civil Service System. (The change is underscored.) The State Universities Retirement System and the University Civil Service System of Illinois provide retirement, seniority and interinstitutional continuous service credit transfer benefits, all as prescribed by state law and regulations issued thereunder. Certain other benefits also are provided by federal and state laws. The President of the University shall issue rules for the granting and administration of these benefits within the University. H e also (1) may establish reciprocal arrangements for recognition of past service credits with other employers relating to such benefits and (2) may grant tuition waivers (but not service fee waiver) up to a maximum of six credit hours or two courses per term or semester to nonacademic employees of other institutions and agencies under the University Civil Service System of Illinois.
I concur in the recommendations that the policy changes presented be approved. (Upon approval of the policy changes, I shall approve implementation of the provisions of the Act in the form of rule amendments to Chapter X I I I, "Vacation and Personal Leave," and Chapter X V I I, "Statutory and Interinstitutional Benefits," of the Policy and Rules — Nonacademic.) On motion of Mr. Swain, these recommendations were approved.
ACCEPTANCE OF GIFT OF SCULPTURE. CHICAGO CIRCLE(15) The Chancellor at Chicago Circle has reported that the Board of Trustees of the Art Institute of Chicago has proposed a gift to the University of a sculptured work to honor the poet, Carl Sandburg, to be located at the campus. This gift is made possible by a bequest to the Art Institute establishing the B. F.
Ferguson Fund. This fund supports a program of creating and displaying major pieces of sculpture in public settings in Chicago honoring "worthy men or women of America."
The fund will cover all costs of the sculpture including installation. Slides of the model prepared by the sculptor and proposed siting of the sculpture have been reviewed by the Chancellor and a subcommittee of the Committee on Art Objects' who recommend acceptance of this significant gift.
I concurOn motion of Mr. Hahn, this recommendation was approved.
