President Clark reported on the progress in the construction of
the Education building and suggested that the University should
place an insurance on it during construction.  After construction
it is insured by the State.

Regent North moved that the President and the Comptroller of the
University be empowered to place a reasonable and increasing
amount of insurance, as may be necessary from time to time, upon
the Education building during process of construction.  Motion
seconded by Mrs. Hood.  Vote:

    Judge Cheney         Aye

The President called to the attention of the Regents a list of
insurances on University buildings which he had secured from
the State Controller.  President Clark was of the opinion that
due to the enormous increase in building cost during the past
4 years, that the insurance on most of the buildings was too
low.  After discussion Judge Cheney asked that President Clark
write to the State Controller and obtain his basis of insurance
on University buildings and also suggested that the insurance
should be increased.

President Clark presented to the Board a tentative plan for
limitation of enrollment.  This plan was discussed both as to
advisability and lawfulness.  Judge Cheney suggested that copies
of the President's outlined policy be sent to each of the members
present and to Judge Curler and that the matter should be taken
up at the next meeting of the Board.

Meeting adjourned.
