     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.
