President Clark read to the Board a letter from Senator Henderson

support of a Federal Mining Experiment Station to be located at
the University.  Judge Cheney recommended the Board endorse the
brief drawn up by President Clark with the following resolution:

    Upon motion it is resolved that the Board of Regents endorse
    the statement, argument and purpose of the brief of President
    Clark entitled "Memorandum Giving Some Reasons Why a Federal
    Mining Experiment Station Should Be Established in Nevada at
    the Mackay Mining School at the University of Nevada" and re-
    quest careful consideration of the same by all government

President Clark read to the Board a letter which he had received
from Controller Cole in answer to his letter of March 1, 1920,
written at the request of the Board and recommending increased
insurance on the University buildings.  As Controller Cole was
not in favor of increasing the insurance it was suggested by
Regent North that a compromise by made by transferring the
excess insurance on the Barracks building to the President's
residence.  President Clark was asked to request of Controller
Cole that this change be made.

Meeting adjourned.
