The Board of Direction asks authority to undertake these two lines of investigation : 1. Soil experiments with field crops. 2. Irrigation experiments. The other work which the Board proposes to carry on is along the lines already authorized. The Board of Direction, until its next meeting, will retain its present staff at salaries now paid. Respectfully submitted,
T. J. BURRILL,
President Board of Direction,
