A meeting of the Board of Regents was held at their Office in
Morrill at 8 o'clock Saturday evening, August 12, 1911.  Present:
Regents Codd, Henderson and O'Brien.  Absent:  Regents Williams,
Reid and President Stubbs.

The reading of the minutes of the previous meetings was dispensed
with.

Chairman Codd presented the following changes in accounts to be
kept for funds received from students, and upon motion of Regent
Henderson, seconded by Regent O'Brien, the same was duly adopted
and ordered put into effect at once.

First, that an account be opened on the books of the Accountant
to be known as the Rent and Material Account; that all items of
room rent and stated charges for material fees, where there is
no rebate, shall be credited to this account.  That all of the
money be deposited in a bank, to be known as the Rent and Materi-
al Account.  When the money is used, proper vouchers and checks
shall be drawn against it, but for the present the fund shall be
allowed to accumulate, so the Regents can use it for a Revolving
Fund if they deem best.

Second, that an account shall be opened on the books of the
Accountant known as the Students' Guarantee Fund; that all items
or fees collected from students for breakage and guarantee shall
be credited to this account, and all moneys collected on same
shall be deposited in a bank and known as the Students' Guarantee
Account.  This account shall be left to accumulate until all
return charges are made against it, then it is to be accounted
for by the Regents.

Third, that the President of the University and the Secretary
make up a statement, so it can be presented at the next regular
meeting of the Board of Regents, of all the outstanding accounts
and indebtedness against the University and the Experiment Sta-
tion.

Fourth, that no further order be put out for goods until a defi-
nite budget is made up, except for absolute necessities.

An order was granted to purchase a vacuum cleaner at a cost not
to exceed $135 and to be charged to the Department of Buildings
and Grounds.

The Committee on Graduate Courses, having recommended to the
Academic Council that the degree of Master of Arts be conferred
upon Miss Beulah Hershiser, and the Academic Council having
concurred in this recommendation, the Vice-President of the
University recommended to the Board of Regents that they confer
the degree of Master of Arts cum laude upon Miss Hershiser.
The recommendation of the Vice-President was approved by the
Regents and the degree ordered granted.

Upon motion of Regent Henderson, seconded by Regent O'Brien, the
bond of the Farmers and Merchants National Bank for $25,000 with
Richard Kirman, J. M. Short, William Levy and W. H. Hood as
sureties in the sum of $5000 cash, was approved.
