    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

President Clark made brief report on Friday's trip to Carson
and the status of the two bills in which the University is in-
terested, one of which has to do with tuition for non-resident
students and the other being the change in the State Board of
Education by substituting the Dean of the School of Education
for the President of the University as one of the Board members.
Some discussion followed and Mr. Pratt said that though he voted
for the change in personnel on the State Board, he did it be-
cause he thought the matter would never get so far but that now
he was going to oppose the change, as he felt that the President
of the University should be a member of this Board rather than
the Dean of the School of Education.

Judge Curler made brief report concerning unfinished items in
heating contract in Education building and stated that Mr. Wagner
would be glad to go over the work and to release Mr. Wara so that
he might complete the job on his heating contract and get the
work properly completed.

Adjourned.
