The Board of Regents met in the Office of President Clark at 10
o'clock Monday morning, January 5, 1925.  Present:  Regents
Pratt, Mrs. Hood, Mrs. Williams and Judge Talbot of the Regents,
and President Clark.  Absent:  Regent Frank Williams.

The first order of business of the new Board was the nomination
of the Chairman of the Board.  Mrs. Williams, as a tribute of
affection and esteem, placed in nomination the name of Mrs. Hood,
who has but two more years to serve.  Judge Talbot moved that the
Board adjourn the organization meeting until January 31st and
that notices be sent out to all Board members to be present at
that time.  Vote on Judge Talbot's motion resulted in a tie.
Mrs. Hood appreciated the tribute that had been paid her, but
preferred that the organization meeting be held now.  Judge
Talbot placed in nomination the name of Mr. Pratt.  Vote re-
sulted in a tie.  Mrs. Hood then withdrew her name from nomina-
tion and the vote was unanimous in favor of Mr. Pratt.  Mr.
Pratt took the Chair.

The election of the Vice Chairman was passed until the next
meeting.
