notice sent to members, the Association was called to order in
Room 44 of the University building by President Reagan, Monday
afternoon, April 22, 1901. In the absence of the Secretary, Dr.
Battle was asked to act in that capacity.
The amendments to the constitution as printed in the announce-
ment sent out to members were adopted seriatim, and the amended

fessor R. L. Batts was elected member of the Council from the Fel-
lows for the term ending 1904; and Mrs. Bride Neill Taylor from

heritage of the State of Texas, the possibilities of the future, and
the opportunities of the Association, the meeting was adjourned.
