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 .
