President Clark read a letter from the I. O. O. F. Lodge of Reno
thanking the Board for the gift of evergreen trees for their
cemetery.

President Clark read the invitation from the Aggie Club to the

tion October 29, 30 and 31st, which letter is to be copied and

At the close of his report on the present status of the heating
engineer matter, President Clark was authorized to have Mr. Ben
A. Brickham of Denver come on to Reno sometime in October to
make the survey necessary for his preliminary report on the heat-
ing problems of this Campus at the terms stated in his telegram,
to wit:  $25 per day and expenses while out of Denver and an
additional $100 for the report.  Mr. Brickham estimated that he
would not require more than 3 or 4 days on the ground and an ad-
ditional week to prepare the report.  The President was requested
to write to the University of Wyoming, whose heating system was
designed by Mr. Brickham, to inquire as to the success of the
system on their Campus.

Some little time was spent in general discussion of student
hazing at the University.

The Board adjourned to meet at 9 o'clock Saturday morning,
