Meeting of the Finance Committee of the Board of Regents was
held in the Office of the President on October 4, at 3 o'clock.
Members present:  Mr. A. A. Codd, Dr. J. J. Sullivan and Mr.
J. W. O'Brien, and President Hendrick.

The President presented the communication from the State Control-
ler to the effect that the money received from the Insurance
Companies had been expended with the exception of $914.60.  Mr.
Charles Friedhoff, who had been in charge of the work, had
under estimated the cost of the replacements requested of him;
he estimated it would take some $500 more than the money avail-
able to reconstruct the porch.  It was explained that there had
been two marble tiled showerbaths installed and that a concrete
floor had been put in the basement of the laundry instead of the
wooden floor destroyed, and also an additional concrete floor
and wall had been installed around the Heating Plant.  Mr.
Friedhoff said these could be done with the money available
without any expenditure by the University.  His estimate, there-
fore, appears to have been wrong.  Mr. Cole asked the Regents to
stand for the extra money to reconstruct the porch if the amount
available should fall short.  Motion made and seconded that the
State Insurance Commissioner be notified to proceed with the
letting of bids for the porch and that both the plans and the
bids be referred to the Regents for action if the cost exceeds
the money in the fund of the Insurance Commissioner.  Motion
being put, all voted yes.

It was moved by Dr. Sullivan, seconded by Mr. O'Brien, that Mr.
Paul Gaston be appointed Comptroller of the University and that
Mr. Gaston be authorized to hire such help as is necessary to
carry on the routine of business of the office and to facilitate
the completion of his audit, his salary to be $250 per month,
and that all banks and parties interested should be notified.
Motion being put, all voted aye.

No further business appearing, the meeting adjourned.
