mation to the Board:

    design and worth approximnately $100.  The second gift con-
    sists of a group of 10 watthour and demandmeters and worth
    from $300 to $400.  The equipment was particularly acceptable
    as we had just begun to build up this part of our laboratory
    work.

the Food and Drug Department, new under University control, in
the State building, on motion of Judge Talbot the Secretary was
instructed to reply that this Board is not in favor of having

lated in the Permanent Construction Fund as to make possible
the erection of this building.  Vote:
