MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES, Dec. 11, 1903 - page 87 The Committee of the Experiment Station begs leave to report as follows. We find the Station in a prosperous and growing condition. The division of animal husbandry has been organized, and Mr. David W. May of the Agricultural Department at Washington, has been appointed to the position of superin- tendent his duties will begin Jan. 1, 1902. According to the instructions of the Board of Trustees at its June meeting, his salary has been fixed at $1500.00 per year. Director Scovell informs the Committee, that Mr. May comes highly recommended and of the many applicants, he was deemed the most desirable. It will be necessary to fit up rooms for this division, and Director Scovell has already been authorized by the Board of Control to prepare and furnish him a room in the Station Building for an office. The Station is very much crowded for room at the Station Building. The Library is entirely inadequate, and the Station is now working under great disadvantage in this respect. Some action should be taken, either to carry out the order of the board of last June, - - giving the Station the whole of the Station Building upon the payment of $9000.00, or if the College is not prepared to give quarters to Prof' Kastle at present elsewhere0 The College should bwy the Stations interest in the Building, which has been fixed at $3,000.00. In which event the Station could put up a building for its accommodations. Prof. Kastle would have adequate room then in the Station Building for years to coma O We find the arrangement whereby Prof 0 Mathews gives a portion of his time to the College, and a portion to the Station unsatisfactory. The Station pays Prof. Mathews $800.00 and he is supposed to give two fifths of his time to the Station, but under the arrangement of the College classes, it is impossible for him to do this.
