    To the Members of the Board of Regents
    of the University of Nevada

    Dear Sirs:

    At the recent Convention of the Nevada Sunday School Associ-
    ation in Carson City, certain resolutions were adopted in re-
    gard to the use of liquor among students of the University at
    some of their social functions.

    I enclose herewith copy of the resolutions.  We feel that in
    opposing this evil we are fighting a common foe, and trust
    that we may have your support and cooperation.

                             Sincerely yours,

                             Ralph W. Nelson
                             Secretary

    WHEREAS, it has come to our knowledge that liquor is being
    used in the preparation of punch served at class and frater-
    nity dances among students of the University of Nevada,

    RESOLVED, that the Nevada Sunday School Association earnest-
    ly urge that the authorities make all possible effort to
    discourage its use at class or social functions of the stu-
    dents, and,

    RESOLVED, that the Nevada Sunday School Association pledge
    its support and cooperation in all attempts made to dis-
    courage and eliminate its use among the student body of the
    University.

    RESOLVED, that copies of these resolutions be entered upon
    the records of the Association, and that copies be forwarded
    at once to the Acting President, to the Secretary of the
    Faculty and to the Secretary of the Board of Regents of the
    University of Nevada.

to exceed $200.

On motion of Regent Henderson, seconded by Regent Codd, when
plans of the Architect for the Library building and Dairy build-
