Vice President Adams reported that Miss Hazel Murray, who has
been Fellow in Chemistry this University year, did not care for
reappointment for the coming year.  He therefore recommended
that Miss Verna M. Stumpf of Spearhead, South Dakota, be elect-
ed to the Fellowship in Chemistry for this coming year at a
stipend of $600 for the year beginning September 1, 1923, and
paid in 9 equal installments, her time to be divided equally
between assisting in the Department and her work for a master's
degree.  Mrs. Hood moved that Dr. Adams' recommendation be

    Mrs. Williams        Aye

    Mrs. Hood            Aye

Chairman Pratt stated that the University was fortunate to have
been given 200 loads of loam by the State Insane Asylum, and
that this loam was being distributed by putting a 5-inch cover-
ing around the Agricultural and Education buildings, where lawn
was to be seeded and trees planted, so that everything would be
in readiness for the celebration of 1924.

Chairman Pratt also stated that he had an agreement with Clark
and Henery whereby they would repair the broken road near Hatch
Station without cost to the University, since they had failed
to put in foundation under this strip of roadway.

Chairman Pratt then brought to the attention of the Regents the
North-Willoughby $125 check matter, on which no action was taken,
it being deemed wise to let the matter lie over until another
meeting of the Board.

No further business appearing, the Board adjourned until the
Commencement meeting, May 15th.  Notices are to be sent to the
members of the Board by the Secretary in due time for this
meeting.
