My dear President Barkert

     Inas much as no trfveling eanenses were allowed for the
apple judging contest, rofessor Rathewa has made application
for permission to use a small amount out of his departmentil,
budget fgor -I --apurjfsas-' I 4tlose his letter, which will set
forth the matter better t.an   can do.

     Inasmuch as the $300.00 originally set aside for travell-
ing in the budget of the  ollege of Agriculture was not speci-
fied for any single department, but was really intended for all
departments, and insigmuch as the executive committee has order-
ed that this and the 4100 additional be used for the stuent
jud~ging  ontest i  the Department of "nimal Husbandry, 1 think
it but fair that  rofessor Mathews be allowed to foljow the
plan which he proposes, and it has my endorsement.    would
be glad if you would ap- rove this, if you can see fit to do
so, and return, with your approval Professor atheV's letter.

                                 Yours very truly,

                                      George Roberts.
