said building with Mr. Clough to be submitted to the Board for
approval at their next meeting.
Regent Deal moved, seconded by Regent Booher, that all the bids
for the Hospital building be rejected for the reason that all of

pose. Mr. Holesworth was requested by the Board to enter into a
contract to build the Hospital building substantially the same
as the present plans, which he refused to do.
The President of the Board of Regents was authorized to enter
into a contract with Mr. Chas. E. Clough to build and complete
the Hospital building substantially the same as the present plans

tion of Professor Louderback for specimens and maps for his
Department at a cost of about $210 be approved.
