The Board of Regents met in the Office of the President of the
University on July 31 at 2 P.M. with the following present:
Chairman Cheney, Mr. North, Mr. Pratt, Acting President Lewers
and Mr. Gorman, Comptroller.  Absent:  Mr. Curler and Mrs. Hood.

Mr. Gorman reported to the members present that he had taken the
plans for the Educational building to San Francisco, as instruct-
ed, for checking.  That Messrs. Bliss and Faville had declined to
check the same and that having been referred to a Mr. Crimm by
various architects in San Francisco, he left the plans with him
for checking.  Mr. Gorman reported the probable cost would be
between $150 and $200.  He also stated that he had explained to
the architect the reasons for this check, being for verification
of size, materials, probable cost, etc., that any errors or
necessary changes might be caught before publication for bids
rather than afterwards.  Mr. Crimm would probably report on the
check within a week's time.

The Board took no action relative to the Education building pend-
ing a report from Mr. Crimm on the plans as submitted.

The Board approved list of Claims No. 9 against the General Fund,
Check 66, for a total of $22,168.37, being for the July payroll
and the payroll for the Summer Session, and list of Claims No. 8
against the State of Nevada, Checks 128 to 135 inclusive, for a
total of $13,460.40, and lists and Checks were signed.  Vote on
above approval:

    Mr. Cheney           Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye

The Chairman read a telegram which had been received from the
President stating his approval or disapproval of certain sugges-
tions made by Miss Day to the plans for the Education building.

The Chairman reported that the matter of the agreement between
the University of Nevada and Peckham Brothers had been looked
into by him and with the addition of a clause to the original
agreement he had approved it.  This matter had come up in a
previous meeting and had been presented by Professor Wilson;
the same covering an exchange of rights of way between Peckham
Brothers and the University, Professor Wilson had been instructed
to have the agreement signed.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned.
