President Clark made brief report on boundary lines and road at
University Farm and said that Judge Curler would look into the
matter for the Regents.

President Clark told of the visit of a representative of the
Union Oil Company, at the request of Governor Boyle, and that
the representative of that Company was in favor of the spur
depot arrangement contemplated by the University and thought
that plan in the long run the better plan.

Mr. Pratt wished to go on record as being not in favor of any
considerable portion of business being carried on by the Execu-
tive Committee.  He believed it would be as easy to get a meeting
of the majority of the members of the Board as to get a meeting
of the 3 members of the Executive Committee.  Mr. Pratt stated
that he would favor an amendment to the Bylaws abolishing the
Executive Committee.
