The Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees of the University
of North Carolina met at 1:15 p.m. on the above date, immediately following
the adjournment of the full Board. The following were present:

Governor J. C. B. Ehringhaus, who presided.
Charles Whedbee,
S. B. Alexander,
Haywood Parker,
Leslie Weil,
I. B. Tucker,
John Sprunt Hill,
Miss Easdale Shaw,
Mrs Julius W. Cone, and
Dr. Clarence Poe

President Graham and Dr. E. C. Brooks were also present.

Mr. I. B. Tucker offered, by request of a group of State College Alumni,
the following resolution:

"Moved that the General Assembly be requested to pass the
necessary legislation to enable and authorize the Board of Trustees
to apply for a loan, not to exceed Thirty Thousand ($30,000) Dollars,
from the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, under the provisions of
Sub—section (1) of Section (201) of the Emergency Relief and Construction
Act of 1932, for the purpose of constructing additional seating capacity
for atheletic contests held on the North Carolina State College

It is understood that this loan will be self-liquidating,
all amortization and interest charges to be paid out of gate receipts
and that the general income or funds of the N. C. State College shall
not be directly or indirectly pledged or obligated for the payment
of any interest or principal on the said loan.
NOTE: - The construction of this additional seating capacity is
made necessary by the deterioration and consequent removal of the
wooden stands on Riddick Field, so that the remaining seating capacity
is totally inadequate to accomodate the spectators."

After discussion it was moved and carried to appoint a committee to
investigate the matter contained in the resolution and report at a later date .

President Graham reported that Dr. E. A. Abernathy, the University
physician, had resigned and Dr. Foy Roberson had been appointed to be tempor-
arily in charge of the University Infirmary.
