B. Charges Filed Against Dr. Peterson
In response to a request for a motion by Governor Combs, Mr. Clifford
Smith made the following statement and motion:
Mr. Chairman, I think the matter of first and prime importance at
this time is the action that the Board should take with respect to the report
or the opinion of the Attorney General, dated April 24, 1963, and of the
interim report, or preliminary report of Peat, Marwick, & Mitchell under
date of April 23, 1963. 1 am advised that copies of each of these documents
have been supplied to each member of the Board. I am further advised
that-the members of the Board have not had an opportunity to thoroughly
study or review either of these reports and would like to have an opportunity
to thoroughly review each of them before determining what action should
be taken. The opinion of the.if ttorney General, dated April 24th, addressed
to the Chairman of the Board of Trustees makes certain specific findings
of facts or charges and consists of a number ofpages. The same is true
of the preliminary reports on the special investigation dated April 23, 1963,
by Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Company; therefore, I make the following
(1) that each of these reports be filed as a part of the permanent records
of this Board,
