Adjourned, to meet again after luncheon.

The adjourned meeting of the Board, all members except Regent
Williams present, took up work at 3:30 P.M. in President Clark's
Office.

President Clark reported on his recent trip to New York City,
made at the request of Mr. Mackay.  He brought word from Mr.
Mackay to the Board of Regents that some time before Commence-
ment of 1924 Mr. Mackay assures the Board that he will give
funds sufficient in whole or in part to materialize the two
items he discussed with President Clark, viz., the $160,000
Science building and an addition of $150,000 or more to the
Mackay School of Mines for endowment.  Mr. Mackay desired this
to be held confidential until he could make the definite gift,
except that he was willing his promise might in strict confi-
dence be told to any prospective donors who might be favorably
influenced by it.  Mr. Mackay suggested it desirable that Pres-
ident Clark have early conference with Mr. W. A. Clark, Jr. of
Los Angeles if this can be arranged.  The Board informally
approved President Clark's endeavoring to arrange such a con-
ference and that he be authorized to go to Los Angeles as soon
as it can be arranged.

After this report and some discussion, the Board adjdourned to
meet May 29, 1923.
