The chief business transacted by the Board of Regents, yesterday afternoon, at their February meeting, was the appointment of professors and in regard to appropriations. The resignations of Prof. C. W. Belser and Instructors Hall and Levi were accepted. Pomeroy Ladue, B. S., received the appointment of instructor in mathematics, and Eugene Leser, Ph. D., that of instructor in French, both at #900 per year. Dr. ö. R. Long, of Ionia, was given permission to deliver a course of lectures on mental diseases before the homceopathic school, no salary attached. The physiological psychology laboratory was granted $155 for apparatus and the chemical laboratory $243. Geo. F. Key was appointed instructor in descriptive geometry at $125 for the semester. Prof. Fred Morley was given leave of absence after April to assist in taking the primary triangulation of St. Mary's river under Gen. Poe, the end being to connect Lake Superior with the lowerlakes. The position is important and reflects much credit to the U. of M. Numerous small appropriations for special apparatus were added, and the board adjourned until March 15.
