                         Reno, Nevada
                       October 6, 1924

The adjourned meeting of the Board was held in the President's
Office on Monday, October 6th, at 5 P.M.  Present:  Chairman
Pratt, Mrs. Hood and Judge Talbot of the Board and President
Clark.

Mrs. Hood said the Board members had been out looking at the pro-
posed parking and roadway area at the north end of the Campus.
Chairman Pratt asked the President to mark out again the area
which it was proposed to cover with crushed stone and the earth
and sand filler.  The territory proposed, as shown on the map,
was a strip of roadway 20 feet wide coming from Virginia Street
to the rear of Lincoln Hall and curving at the eastern end of
Lincoln Hall and increasing to 24 feet to join the main drive,
then continuing on back of the Hospital and Gymnasium to the
northeast corner of the Bureau of Mines building and north to
the railing and colonnade south of the grandstand including a
strip 40 feet wide south of the colonnade, with understanding
that a space about 80 feet wide between Lincoln Hall and the
roadway at the rear should also have the crushed stone founda-
tion laid.  Superintendent Lynch's letter of estimate follows:

                                       September 30, 1924

    Dear President Clark:

    In reply to your request of recent date I am herewith giving
    you an estimate of the cost of improving the road and park-
    ing space back of Lincoln Hall and extending east to the
    northeast corner of the Bureau of Mines building, area north
    of Gymnasium and south of bleachers.  The total area contains
    approximately 5000 square yards.  To place crushed rock 3"
    deep over above area would take 420 cubic yeards, which at
    $2.37 1/2 per yard would cost $997.50.

    To place sand and earth filler 2" thick on top of rock would
    take 240 cubic yards and at a cost of $1 per yard would be
    $240.  The City Engineer's estimate for grading, leveling and
    rolling is placed at about $700, making a total of $1937.50
    for the job.

After some discussion, Judge Talbot moved that the President be
authorized to have this done in accord with Mr. Lynch's letter
of estimate, on the understanding that the cost is to be kept
at as near the $1937.50 as possible and is in no event to exceed
$2100.  Vote:

    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mrs. Hood            Aye

Adjourned to meet at 9 o'clock Thursday morning, October 30,
1924.

                             Walter E. Pratt
                             Chairman
