ROCKEFELLER GIFT RESOLUTION OF ACCEPTANCE AND THANKS
On motion of Regent Calkins seconded by Regent Forell, the following resolution was adopted:
"The Regents of the University of Nebraska heartily thank John D. Rockefeller for his offer of two thirds of the sum of $100,000.00 or a social and religious building for the university, in case others by July 1st 1904, furnish the remaining third.
We approve the arrangements in progress to realize the offer named, thanking those who have already made or promised subscriptions toward realizing the offer, and also those business men, professors, students and others - who have volunteered for the raising of the necessary money - the time and the labor which, it is believed, must assure to the work a successful issue."
