Froker as he ended his 16-year
career. The Regents expressed their
gratitude for Froker's administration
of the College of Agriculture and
his contributions to research, speci-
fically in the development of sterile
concentrated milk.
  Vice President Robert Clodius,
himself a member of the Ag faculty
for many years, noted that "in a
quiet way," Dean Froker has made
