The Executive Committee of the Board of Regents met at 2 o'clock

The Committee adopted the following resolution to cover the labor
situation as set forth by the President:

    WHEREAS, it appears that the maximum rate of $3 per day
    heretofore authorized to be paid for casual employees is
    not sufficient to secure competent service,

    IT IS ORDERED that until further notice such employees may
    be employed at a rate which shall not exceed $4 per day.

Resolution passed by the following vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Mr. Cheney           Aye

The following resolution offered by Mr. North was on motion
unanimously adopted to be carried over to the full Board meet-
ing:

    RESOLVED, that the acts of the Comptroller in heretofore
    furnishing the members of the Board of Regents with finan-
    cial statements of the affairs of the University, is ap-
    proved, and that the Comptroller is directed to furnish
    the President and the Board of Regents, or its Executive
    Committee with monthly statements clearly showing the
    financial condition of the University.

The President reported in summary on his eastern trip.

The Chairman asked relative to budgets for the coming year and
what was being done to get students for the coming year.  The
President stated the budget system was already in operation and
named the various activities of the University to the end of
attracting students.

State Architect De Longchamps appeared before the Board with
rough sketches of Campus plans, two different arrangements,
and the Committee informally discussed the same with the idea
of a site for the new Educational building.  Matter left over
for the May 6th meeting when Mr. De Longchamps was to present
more detailed sketches.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned.
