        equally between the members of the winning team, is
        offered to the representatives of any organization or
        class in the University which wins in a debating series
        arranged after the manner of an elimination contest.
        The final winners are to receive the prizes."

this University year, beginning the middle of October, 1923 and
closing with May, 1924, giving her a total of $1350 for her

Department, shall be elected Master of Lincoln Hall from and
after November 1, 1923; that in view of this extra work his
salary shall be rated at $2500 per year, beginning with Novem-
ber 1, 1923 instead of $2200; and that in addition he shall

On motion of Regent Williams, President Clark was at his dis-
cretion authorized to grade that portion of the Campus between
Lincoln Hall and the Dining Hall, provide suitable accommoda-
tions for the new fowl to be retained and to secure the proper
amount of soil for surfacing from the State Hospital grounds
so that Superintendent Lynch could seed this portion of the
Campus early in the Spring that it might be green by the time
of the semi-centennial celebration during the last week of May,
1924.  Vote:

    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye

After a discussion of the proposed Campus improvements, the Board
adjourned with the understanding that the next meeting of the
Board should be held December 3rd, instead of November 30th, and
that the Secretary should so notify Mrs. Williams, since she,
Judge Talbot and Chairman Pratt would be the only members who
could be present at that Board meeting.
