Patterson Chairman Stanley then threw the meeting open for dis- cussions of matters pertaining to the "good of the order". Doctor Patterson referred to the vacancy in the Experiment Station and College of Agriculture growing out of the death of Doctor Joseph H. Kastle. He advised that the Board pro- ceed slowly and cautiously in the matter of selecting the heads of these two departments and that even if it werznec- essary to delay selection a year, it might be well to do so in order that the Board might have opportunity to canvass the field thoroughly and procure the best men available for these posts. The formal discussion disclosed general feel- ing of harmony with Doctor Patterson's viewpoint. Mli , CxkkXv 0-111-- , - C,7 . 4 -T),V.11-1 tllt4_ A, r W 'IN i0o-"A * - o
