Outgoing President Charles Collins had recommended to the College Board of Trustees that the daily time of morning chapel be moved from "before breakfast," often in the dark during winter, to 8:45 a.m..  He also suggested that daily evening prayers be abolished altogether.  The trustees turned both recommendations down flat.  (By John Osborne)
