The Executive Committee of the Board of Regents met in the Presi-
dent's office May 1, 1948.  Present:  Regents Ross, Henningsen,

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Ross at 10:20 A.M. by
Chairman Ross who stated that the purpose of the meeting was to
consider a lease of land to the Navy for a roadway to the propos-
ed Naval Armory and any matters which the President might pre-
sent.

Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that the following
claims, presented herewith, be approved as follows:

    List No. 11, dated April 30, 1948, Regents Checks 78-283 to
    78-313, inclusive, for a total of $172,678.81.

    List No. 11, dated April 30, 1948, State Claims 78-188 to

Naval Armory Roadway - The Commander of the 12th Naval District
has asked for a leave on land to construct a road between the
proposed Naval Armory and the Clark Field fill in lieu of the
present road which will be blocked by the Armory building.

Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that the Chairman of
the Board be authorized to sign the lease upon satisfactory
terms.

President's Car - Because the Nash car now being used by the
President is not giving good service on out-of-town trips, motion
of Mrs. Henningsen passed unanimously that the Board approve the
purchase of a new Buick for the use of the President, and that
the Nash be assigned to the Agricultural Extension Division in
payment for 2200 reams of mimeograph paper which they wish to
dispose of because of lack of storage space.

Retirement - Professor Higginbotham, Publicity Director for the
University, has suggested that, for publicity purposes, it would
be well to announce the retirement of those faculty members who
will retire at the end of the present semester, prior to Com-
mencement.

Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that the requests of
Dr. J. R. Young, Professor of Psychology, and P. A. Lehenbauer,
Professor of Horticulture, be approved and that the proportionate
amount from the University and Teachers Insurance and Annuity
Company be considered at the regular meeting of the Board.

It was unanimously agreed that Professor V. E. Scott, whose re-
tirement was reported by the Comptroller on January 24th, be re-
hired for the coming academic year, and President Moseley was
directed to prepare a recommendation for the consideration of
the Board at the June meeting.

The meeting adjourned at 11:15 A.M.
