Changes in the faculty, granting de-
grees to those who were unable to re-
ceive them at commencement time, and
the passing of several resolutions-
made up the bulk of the work done by
the board of regents at their meeting
Among the resolutions passed was
one which provided for a change in the
title and organization of the engineer-
ing, department. Hereafter this depart-
ment will be known as the department
of engineering and architecture. Dean
M. E. Cooley will still -be dean of the
department but the separate faculty
of architecture will- have full control
over that side of the work, making
their own requirements for admission
and graduation.
V"ree Tesling of Paving iaterial.
Another resolution which makes the
university of practical benefit to the
state was one which provides for the
free testing of paving materials for
the cities of the state. Publicity is to
be given to the results obtained by this
department by means of publication
and the information distributed in this
way will be of material aid to- the
people of the state.

ernor. The regents took this action
at the request of thecloal D. A. R.
who found that hall hadbeevso nam-
ed by the regents in 1843 but this had
never been carried into effect; and a
motion to receive the same was tabled -
in- 1848. "Possibly," said President
Eneritus James B. Angell, "the rising
tide of anti-slavery feeling among
faculty and students operated against
perpetuating the fame of a southerner
in this way. Governor Mason was a
Provision was also made for the
completion of the new Hill auditorium
by an appropriation of $6,700. This
building has cost approximately $282,-
000 of which the regents have conrib-
uted $66,700. Weather strips are to be
put on the chemical building and also
on the Alumni Memoral hall.
The purchase of Michigan municipal
bonds was also authorized as ani'int
vestment for university funds. A res-
olution was also passed to the effect.
that hereafter instructors in the engi-
neering department are to be' engaged
for but one year at a time.
Cooperate With City,'.
The regents also agreed with the
proposition submitted by'tft city for a
contagious disease hopital. The un-
versity is to furnish th-'land and pro-
vide for the operation of the institu-
tion and the city is to provide a $25,000
building. The hospital will be buil
northeast of the present hospitals near
Observatory street.
Location of New Science Building.

The location of the new science
building to be constructed this fall was
finally determined upon. It will be
built on the site of the present psy-
chology laboratory between the chem-
istry and law buildings. This will
probably, necessitate the location of
the animal houses and the green hous-
es north of the campus.

Regent L. L. Hubbard, of Houghton,
was taken ill at Chicago while on his
way to Ann Arbor to attend yester-
day's meeting of the regents and to
deliver a lecture on "The Copper Min-

fined in a Chicago hospital.
Earl Moore, '12, recently appointed
head of the organ department in the
University School of Music, has just
been selected as organist of the
American church in Paris, where he

this same position was at one time
held by L. L. Renwick, the predecessor
of Moore in the School of Music. The
selection of Moore is regarded by his
friends here as a signal honor. He
