Governor Boyle appeared before the Board and expressed his desire to cooperate with the Board in the work of the newly created State Assayer's Office, in the appointment of a State Assayer, and explained to the Board the provisions of the law passed by the last Legislature regarding the office; emphasizing the fact that he did not wish to put an appointee for this position in the State Analytic Laboratory -- where the law required the work should be conducted -- without the approval of the Board of Re- gents. A further appointment was made with Governor for 10:45 A.M. July 9th, and the matter was held in abeyance until that time for further consideration. Professors R. Adams and Peter Frandsen, a committee from the Uni- versity Senate, appeared before the Board to supplement by oral argument their report of April 10 (see File 2 No. 10).
