Governor Gardner welcomed the members of the Board of Trustees and gave a brief history of the origin of the idea of consolidating the University, The State College and the North Carolina College for Women and stated that no step had been taken without careful consideration and due deliberation. He said: "At the time I was a student at State College the standards were not very high. We had no high school system in the State. It was almost impossible to establish standard application to the state. While I was a student af the University of North Carolina I was invited to speak at State College. In my address I referred to some day in which consolidation would come to pass
