AbstractAs a distinct help in accomplishing these high purposes, we urge that as soon as practicable, a man be secured to fill the Weyerhaeuser chair of ethics, philosophy and religion, who will devote his entire time to the moral and spiritual interests of the students. The chief point to bear in mind is our central objective, namely, "to discover to the Mos-lem world those living springs which are found in Christ," whatever be our methods of achieving this. Dr. Watson asked for a frank expression of opinion on the value of the pub-lic addresses which he has been making during the fall months. All of the Trust-ees were unanimous in the opinion that these addresses were making a most import-ant contribution; they keep the University before people. As soon as people have money, they are likely to give. The following men are being considered as Trustees: Mr. Samuel H. Fisher, of New York; Rev. Douglas Horton, of Chicago; Rev. Phillips Sturges, of Boston; and Mr. F. Morse .Archer, of C nden, N. S. While there was not an opportunity for a full discussion on the matter of the advisability of electing women to the Board, the general sentiment seemed to be against it. In the discussion of Dr. Watson's schedule, the Trustees felt he should leave for Egypt in February and return to America for the fall months and in all probability, return to Egypt again in February, 1935. The meeting adjourned at 10:50 P. M., with a unanimous vote of thanks on the Dart of all the Trustees to TILT. and Mrs. Dodds for their generous hospitality. 41•n•n••n Secretary.
