Starr Jordan would deliver the Commencement Address.

After a brief statement by President Clark on the present status
of the securing of a Director for the State Hygienic Laboratory,
he asked the abolishment of our free rabies treatments at this
Laboratory because of high cost of commercial sera and inability
to secure from the Government or other states free sera.  After
some discussion it was agreed that proper notice be given the
Press in re. the above and that formal statement be made that
the free treatments were to be discontinued.

President Clark outlined recent progressive legislation on the
part of the University faculty.

President Clark made announcement of two new scholarships:

President Clark stated that the baseball teams of Reno had made
application, through Mr. Pratt, for the use of Mackay Athletic
Field for baseball purposes on Sundays and holidays.  It was
not deemed advisable to grant this request, inasmuch as it was
directly contrary to University policy.

tuition charges.  After due consideration of this matter, Mr.
