When service is terminated by the Board, notice will be given, however, at the earliest time practicable, and in case a member of the corps in^ tends to leave the service of the University it is but fair that the President of the University should be advised at least as soon as such purpose has been determined upon. In case a resignation is presented to take effect at some future time, the Board will exercise its right to terminate the service at that time, or at some earlier date, as may seem just to all the interests involved. In case a member of the Corps of Instruction enters upon regular employment elsewhere before the termination of service here, that fact will work a termination of service and a cessation of salary here. And for any failure to comply with all of the conditions of loyal and interested service, which are an honorable obligation upon all members of the Corps of Instruction, the Board of Trustees will feel free to withhold salary so far as the interestsof the University and justice to others may seem to demand.
