complete the records.

Moved by Regent Codd, seconded by Regent O'Brien, that, beginning
with the Summer School on June 22nd, no credit be extended to any

will be no disappointment next semester.  At the rate of $16 per
month, it is hardly fair for any student to come to the Univer-
sity without enough money to pay at least one month's board.

No further business appearing, the Board adjourned to meet at
the call of the Chairman.
