    To the Hon. Board of Regents



    Sirs:



    I have received notification of my suspension from the rights

    and privileges of the University until January 4th.  The

    charges governing this action are:



        1.  Negligence of duty in the University, and

        2.  Conduct unbecoming to a gentleman in Manzanita Hall



    The first charge may be justified.  To the second, I take

    exception.  It casts unjust reflections on my character and

    I respectfully request that the Hon. Board of Regents in-

    vestigate this accusation and determine whether or not it

    is warranted.



                             Respectfully,

                             H. M. Standerwick



The Secretary of the Board was directed to advise Mr. Standerwick

by letter that it is the policy of the Board of Regents not to

interfere with the discipline of the President or faculty and

that if he felt aggrieved, he could apply to the Committee on

Student Affairs.



Letter from Captain C. T. Boyd to the President of the University

reports that he expects to arrive in San Francisco about the 15th

of December and report for duty at the next semester.
