Notices
Apparatus Exchange: The Regents
authorize the sale of scientific ap-
paratus by one department to an-
other, the proceeds of the sale to be
credited to the budget account of the
department from which the apparatus
is transferred, under following condi-
tions.
Departments having apparatus
which is not in active use are advised
to send description thereof to the{
University Chemistry Store, of which
Professor R. J. Carney is director.
The Chemistry Store headquarters
are in Room 223 Chemistry Building.
An effort will be made to sell th
apparatus to other departments
which are likely to be able to use it.
In some instances the apparatus may
be sent to the University Chemistry
Store on consignment and if it is not
sold within a reasonable time, it will
be returned to the department from
which it was received. The object of
this arrangement is to promote econ-
omy by reducing the amount of un-
used apparatus. It is hoped that de-
partments having such apparatus will
realize the advantage to themselves
and to the University in availing
themselves of this opportunity.
