financial condition of the Universit  

     President Barker stated du-ring the discussion that in the
past he had for certain poor students remitted the fees to be
paid to the University; that this vae an old custom. and that
he felt by the remission of these fees stadents could attend
college when otherwise they Vwould be prevented from so doing*
Mr. Brown took the position that no one man should have the
power to remit these fees. 'rl John-,ton stated that it might
be wisa to give to some person or Go;;Ittee such power.   Pr
Brown thought that ome obligation should be given to the
University therefor, and reeldent Barker stated that no obli-

particular girl had had money enou;, to pay her bill every week,
but that she had evidently spent the money for other purposes.

     Mr. Stoll stated that he had never seen a statement of the
condition of the accounts at Patterson Ball. and that Inas-
much as the University was responsible for the operation of
Patterson Hall, a statement of its acco'nts should be made to
the University.   t developed in the discussion that there was
