5 Dr. Bosomworth continued that Dr. 'William R. Willard has been a leader at the state and national level in the provision of primary care and it is most fitting that the new department carry his name. Dr. Willard, who was present at the meeting, was recognized by Mr. Clay and received a round of applause from the Board members. On motion by Mr. Alverson, seconded by Mr. Goss, and passed, the establishment of the William R. Willard Department of Family Practice was authorized and approved. (See PR 8 at the end of the Minutes. ) P. Amendment to Section IV of the Governing Regulations At the January 19, 1971 meeting of the Board of Trustees, a proposed amendment to Section IV of the Governing Regulations was presented by President Singletary with his recommendation that it be approved after the required month between presentation and action had elapsed. Mr. Clay called for a motion to bring the motion off the table. Mr. Steve Bright moved adoption of the proposed amendment to Section IV of the Governing Regulations as presented at the January 19, 1971 meeting of the Board of Trustees.

He then read the amend- ment to the proposed amendment, a copy of which is included at the end of the Minute s . His motion was seconded by Mr. Cooper. In the discussion that followed, Mr. Bright indicated that it was as apparent to him as to Mr. Bell that the pro- posed original amendment would not pass in its original form and it was with some regret and disappointment that he acceded to the changes in the January 19 amendment as recommended by Mr. Bell.
