The following revision covering AB
SENCES has been approved by the Faculty
and is in effect:
17. (1) Prompt and regular attendance
■ upon classes is required of all students.
A student is expected to give class at
tendance first consideration and to arrange
necessary absences to cause the minimum
conflict with college duties.
(2) Absence from class, regardless of
the cause, results in a part of the work in
that class being missed. Responsibility for
making up work missed rests on the stu
dent. The instructor of a class is the sole
authority as to a student’s proficiency and
final grade in that course. He is also the
sole judge as to whether the circumstances
of the absence and the work of the stu
dent warrant his cooperation in providing
opportunity to make up quizzes and labo
ratory work missed. The head of each de
partment is responsible for maintaining a
consistent policy within the department.
(3) Each instructor in charge of a class
or section shall keep an accurate record
of attendance of its members. He shall re
port the total number of accumulated ab
sences of each student on his mid-semester
and semester grade reports. Whenever a
student is absent from class for one week
for reasons unknown or deemed unsatis
factory to the instructor, and in such
other cases as the instructor deems ad
visable, he shall report such absences
through the head of his department to the
dean of the student’s school.
(4) For persistent absence from a class
or classes a student may be required to
drop the course or courses upon recom
mendation of the instructor. Students ceas
ing to attend a class prior to filing with
the Registrar the approval of their dean
to drop the course, will be considered ab
sent from class and subject to penalty for
persistent absence. Flagrant violation of
the absence rules may result in the dis
missal of the student from the college.
(5) The Dean of Men shall publish, reg
ularly, a list of students absent due to
illness and those absent on trips authorized
by the Executive Committee such as in
spection trips and official trips represent
ing the College. This list shall be for the
information and guidance of the instructor
in providing opportunity for a student
to make up work missed. It shall be the
responsibility of the student asking such
opportunity, to call the attention of the
instructor to the presence of his name
on such list promptly upon his return to
(6) Students allowed to register on pro
bation, as provided in Paragraphs 29 and
30 of the Regulations, are expected to at
tend all classes except where the absence
is absolutely unavoidable. A list of such
students will be issued from the Registrar’s
office as soon as possible. Instructors are
expected to enforce the "no cut” provision
of the probation and to report unnecessary
absences of these students promptly.
1. Any students desiring to add a course
must present a written statement from
the department concerned, that there is
ai place ip the class for him. This state
ment must be presented to the Dean of
his School. With the Dean’s approval, the
Registrar will be authorized to make
the change.
2. Transfers from one section to another
in the same subject will be made by the
department involved.
3. September 23 will be the last day that
courses can be dropped without a grade.

all the requirements for a degree by the
end of the current semester should call by
the Registrar’s Office NOW and make
formal application for a degree. This in

II The Story of
TT is typical of Dick Porter’s experience that his
latest assignment, that of experimenting with
such “guided missiles” as the V-2 rocket, is almost
a complete engineering departure from his earlier
fields of concentration.
As a senior at the U. of Kansas in 1934, his in
terest was in radio. His doctor’s thesis at Yale in
1937 was on frequency doublers.
But at General Electric Dick found opportunity
to learn other phases of engineering. In G-E engi
neering courses and “on Test” he worked out prob
lems in transformers, induction motors, oil circuit
His first major assignment with G.E. was in a
field not only new to him but to the electrical in
dustry—he contributed to the pioneer research in
amplidyne control.
As the war progressed, flight engineers began to
dream of the Superfortress, whose gun turrets
would be turned electrically, whose heavy guns
would be aimed electronically. Development of this
gunnery system called for a supervisor whose en
gineering knowledge ranged through many fields.
It was Dick Porter, less than ten hard-working
years out of Kansas U., who drew the assignment.
This year he was presented with the Yale Engi
neering Association’s award for the advancement
of science.
Next to schools and the U.S. Government, General Electric
1$ the foremost employer of college engineering graduates.
For his campus radio station, Dick built studio
and transmitter equipment.
Today he is project engineer in the study of
captured V-2 rockets.
