its objectives, as I see them.

with the Public Works Adminlstration has been practically completed,

will be transferred to the institution in the near future. The
last two buildingss BiolojAcal Science Htall, and the Home Economics
Building, are large structures. The money available for their
construction wa's not sufficient to fully complete them, and,conse-
quently, there are a number of things that should be done in
these buildings in the way of floor covering, painting-, partitions,
laboratory tables, shelving and the like. Some of the require-
ments of the Biologicali Science Building can be taken care of from
the 20$,000 aptzropriated for sciltntific equipment by the last
