President Clark recommended the acceptance of the resignation of
Dr. W. E. Lowther as Professor and Head of the Department of
Romanic Languages to take effect beginning April 1, 1921.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye

On the recommendation of President Clark, Miss Mary P. Browder
was granted a stipend of $100 for 6 hours a week in Spanish and
Instructor Will C. Steinbrunn, for an additional 6 hours a week
in the Romanic Language Department, was granted an additional
$100, both these amounts to cover work from the time Dr. Lowther
leaves until the end of the semester.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

President Clark, at the request of Dr. Maxwell Adams, recommended
the election of Dr. John F. G. Hicks to be Assistant Professor
of Chemistry at a salary of $2500 a year, beginning September 1,
1921.  Regent Pratt made the motion.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

At the request of Dean Hall, President Clark recommended the
election of Miss M. Julia Detraz to be Instructor of Education
at a salary of $2250 per year, beginning September 1, 1921.  Upon
motion the vote stood as follows:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

Discussion with reference to these two appointments showed clear
consensus of opinion of the Regents that each election for a
year should be understood to be an election that called for pay-
ments for a complete year from the time payments began, always
provided that there be no accepted resignation or dismissals
specified to occur at a date within the year.

President Clark reported progress on the work turned over to
Mr. Gorman and him in the matter of securing vault door, finish
hardware, electric light fixtures and some outside wiring for
the new Mining Experiment Station building.  A door has been
secured for $280, the outside wiring will cost $675, and the
finish hardware $250.  They are about to close with regard to
lighting fixtures.  The above fixtures indicate a savings in
the funds available for these purposes of between $200 and $300.

Adjourned.
