right to all waste water running over this land and to 10 inches
of water right in the Highland Ditch.

President Clark read to the Board the letter from Mr. John Arm-
strong Chaloner of Virginia in which Mr. Chaloner stated that,
there being no candidate for the John Armstrong Chaloner Fellow-
ship of $750 in the Mackay School of Mines for the current year,
he was willing that this amount should be divided into 5 first
prizes of $100 each and 5 second prizes of $50 each for women
students, the women students by mass meeting vote to decide the
subjects which should carry the prize awards.

President Clark presented the request of Miss Dorothy Foster,
in charge of the State Hygienic Laboratory during the leave of
Dr. Albert, for a leave of absence during the month of December,
since she is threatened with a serious break in health and her
physician recommends that she should have one month's absolute
rest now in order to stabilize her health for the future.  On
the understanding that during Miss Foster's absence the two
Technicians in the Laboratory, under the direction of Dr. Grover,
will conduct the work of the Laboratory, Mrs. Williams moved that

that during this month's leave Miss Foster is to receive no pay.
