President Clark presented to the Board a $50 bill, sent anony-

of the tennis courts, with understanding that if the drinking
fountain is not in place by September 1st, the sum is to be
returned to Miss Sameth for return to the donor.  It was under-
stood that if the installation of the fountain costs more than
this amount, it should be met from University funds.

Judge Talbot made the following motion:

    I certainly recommend that we accept the $50 for a drinking
    fountain to be installed at the girls' playing field by
    September 1, 1925, and that we extend the thanks of the
    Board to the unknown donor through Miss Sameth, since we
    especially appreciate this gift.

sum.
