President Clark discussed with the Board the necessity of a peti-
tion to the State Board of Examiners for a deficit of $10,000 to
permit the Regents to make award of contract for the new Mining
Experiment Station building.  The petition is to be drawn up by
the President and all members of the Board are to sign petition,
which the President plans to take to Carson on Saturday morning,
September 4, 1920, for presentation to the State Board of Exam-
iners.

Judge Cheney suggested that a time limitation clause be inserted
in the building contract for the Mining Experiment Station build-
ing, that the limit be January 1, 1921, and that the bidders be
notified at once by letter to this effect and advised to notify
the Regents promptly unless they are satisfied to have their bids
remain with this understanding.

A Board of Regents meeting was called for Monday morning, August
10, at which time it was hoped to have the permission of the
State Board of Examiners to incur expenditures amounting to
$10,000 above the $30,000 bond issue apportionment for the Min-
ing Experiment Station building.  If this permission is granted,
building and heating awards are to be made to contractors.  The
State Architect, who was called in for conference, was requested
to present estimates on the cost of wiring and electric fixtures
for the building at this meeting.

The President presented the resignation of Dr. Charles Goggio as
Head of the Department of Romanic Languages.  Dr. Goggio has
accepted a position in the University of Washington.  The resig-
nation was accepted, effective August 1, 1920.  Vote:

    Mr. North            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Cheney         Aye

The President presented for formal ratification the election of
Charles B. Williams as Instructor of Physical Education for Men
at a salary of $2200, effective from July 1, 1920.  This election
was approved in August by telephone by 3 members of the Board of
Regents.  Vote:

    Mr. North            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Cheney         Aye

On the recommendation of Registrar Louise M. Sissa, the President
presented the names of Dorris D. Brown and Mildred K. Meise as
graduates of the one-year Normal Course, their work having been
completed during the Summer Session of 1920.  Signing of their
diplomas by the Chairman of the Board of Regents and the Presi-
dent of the University was authorized.  Vote:
