Dr. Stout announced that Mr. Bill Miller would serve as a backup greeter for the picnic to assist Dr. Barbara Humphreys and Mr. Harold Johnson.
Dr. Willene Paxton addressed the Board regarding the “Tales of the University,” which she is chairing. She reported she has met with several university personnel concerning the publication along with a prospective printer/publisher. After reviewing the price structure and several concerns, it was the group’s consensus of opinion not to publish it in a “book form” at this time. Dr. Paxton stated she needed some direction. Additionally, more stories are needed and some will definitely be forthcoming (i.e., Mrs. Culp, etc.). Dr. Paxton suggested she would continue exploring possibilities. Perhaps there are families and/or businesses that would help with printing by making contributions or serve as sponsors. “Advertising” might be considered in helping raise publication funds, etc.
It was decided to try to have a mimeographed copy (draft) for the annual meeting
The meeting adjourned
