On motion by Mr. Huff, seconded by Mr. Stevens, it was voted to approve the above recommendation.

Communication from Mr. Varner:

Some time ago Mr. and Mrs. Harry Pryale, through the Pryale Foundation, assigned $50,000 here with the understanding that it would draw interest for the life of Mr. and Mrs. Pryale. In view of the community enthusiasm for the new theater project, Mr. Pryale has suggested that this money be used in support of the theater.

It is my recommendation, therefore, that we be authorized to assign this $50,000 to the purchase of lighting and other equipment to make the little auditorium we have usable for the theater and that the annual interest charges be charged against the operating budget of the theater.

On motion by Dr. Smith, seconded by Mr. Huff, it was voted to approve the above recommendation.

Mr. Varner reported that bids had been taken on the proposed new dormitory but that they were in excess of the budget and in excess of the amount of debt that could be carried by this residence hall; and that he recommended the rejection of all bids with the understanding that this whole project is to be rebid in November or December.

On motion by Mr. Stevens, seconded by Dr. Smith, it was voted to approve the above item.
