matter and discussing its phases, Judge Talbot moved that,

    WHEREAS, it appears from the record of this Board that the

    been paid by reason of lack of funds at the time the bill
    was due, and that,

    of this Board as of March 11, 1919, the Board of Regents rec-
    ommends that the sum of $280.23 be granted to Mr. Schuler by
