    Mr. Edward Parsons, architect, was present to discuss this
    item of business.

    A formal agreement between the Board of Regents of the Uni-
    versity and Mr. Parsons was discussed.  It was pointed out
    that it was the wish of the Fleischmann Foundation that this
    agreement be made between the University and the architect.

    Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that Mr. Ross,
    Chairman, be authorized to sign the agreement on behalf of
    the Board of Regents, after Mr. Thompson has checked it with
    the Chairman of the Max C. Fleischmann Foundation, and re-
    ceived his approval, and provided any changes so made are
    agreed upon by Mr. Parsons.


    It was agreed that the members of the Legislature be invited
    by the President to visit the Campus in a body during the
    Legislative Session.


    Mr. Parsons offered a gift of tracing paper, valued at be-
    ween $50 and $60, to the University.  The Regents accepted
    with thanks.


    Mr. Ross reported on his conversation with the owner of land
    north of the Campus to ascertain its availability for expan-
    sion of the University Campus.

    Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that Mr. Ross proceed
    with investigation of the property and possible terms of
    acquiring it.
