The Board of Regents met in the Office of President Clark at

sum of $19,941.28, and List No. 6, Regents Checks Nos. 5049 to
5062 inclusive, for the net sum of $50,195.63 were, on motion

As a matter of information, President Clark read the following
letter from Professor F. W. Wilson:

    In a conference with Mr. J. L. Hash today, I gave him
    permission to obtain his 15 inches of irrigating water
    for the year 1925 through our ditch and pipe line at
    times when we are not in need of its use.

    I might add that the proposed deal with the D. C. Wheeler
    Company is not to be made.  C. H. Wheeler's attitude and
    preparation to take care of our water from the Lake Ditch
    were not such as to give me confidence that we should ob-
    tain a fair deal.  Upon my telling him so he obtained a
    trade with Wilkerson Brothers and A. Baroli for his needs.

Judge Talbot moved that Professor Wilson, at his discretion,
may permit Mr. J. L. Hash to obtain 15 inches of water through
the pipe line of the University Farm during the present season
at such times as would not interfere with the use of water at
the Farm.  Vote:

    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mrs. Williams        Aye

On the recommendation of Dr. Albert, President Clark recom-
mended:

    a.  That Miss Virginia De Bell, assistant in the State
        Hygienic Laboratory, be advanced in pay from $150 to
        $167 per month, for the year beginning July 1, 1925.

    b.  That Miss Edna Bonner be appointed Stenographer and
        assistant in the State Hygienic Laboratory at a
        monthly salary of $75 for the 3 months beginning
        June 1, 1925.

Mrs. Williams moved the adoption of the President's recommenda-
tion.  Vote:

    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mrs. Williams        Aye

On the recommendation of Director Doten, President Clark recom-
mended that Mr. Doten be authorized to make the arrangement set
forth in his letter of May 27, 1925, to President Clark to the
effect that Dean Stewart should become the leader of a project
in the Agricultural Experiment Station concerned with soil
problems in the vicinity of Las Vegas.  If Dean Stewart is
willing and the Washington authorities approve this arrangement,
his compensation from Station Funds is to be $600 a year and
from General Funds $3900, in place of the present $4200, making
his total compensation $4500 per year.  Mrs. Williams moved the
adoption of the President's recommendation.  Vote:
