The Executive Committee of the Board of Regents met in the Office
of the President of the University at 11 o'clock on October 28,
1920.  There were present Chairman Cheney, Mr. Pratt and Mr.
North of the Regents, Vice President Lewers and Comptroller
Gorman.

Comptroller Gorman submitted the following claims for approval
and signature by the Regents:

    List No. 30, State Claims Nos. 402 to 424 inclusive, for
    the net sum of $31,983.15, and

    List No. 29, Checks Nos. 214 to 228 inclusive, for the net
    sum of $39,621.76.

The above items were approved and signed.  Vote:

    Regent North         Aye
    Regent Pratt         Aye
    Judge Cheney         Aye

Comptroller Gorman made a statement to the Board regarding the
proposed spur from the Western Pacific Railroad to the Univer-
sity Campus, the cost of storage tank for fuel oil and the
prospects of obtaining oil.  He was of opinion that the saving
on the purchase price of oil would pay for the spur in two
years' time.

Judge Cheney wished Mr. Gorman to notify Mr. Bernasconi, con-
tractor for the Federal Mining Experiment Station, that payment
of his claim of $2125 is not any waiver of any right the Regents
may have to exact the penalty prescribed by the contract in the
event the building is not completed within the time prescribed
in the contract.

Adjourned.
