Any incorporated university, college, or academy may connect therewith, to be used as a part of its course of education, any mechanical shops and machinery, or lands for agricultural purposes not exceeding three hundred acres, to which may be attached all necessary buildings for carrying on the mechanical or agricultural operations of such institution. 50 v. 128, S 8; S. & C. 267.

$ 3730. May change stock into scholarships

Any company formed in pursuance of this title, or which now exists by virtue of any special act of incorporation, the property of which is held as stock, and not derived by donation, gift, devise, or gratuitious subscription, may change its capital stock into scholarships, when it becomes necessary for the purpose of carrying out the object for which it was formed, in the manner provided in section thirty-two hundred and sixty-two. 50 v. 128, $S 9, 10; S. & C. 268.

$ 3731. Location may be changed, and how

A college, university, or other institution of learning, now existing by virtue of any act of incorporation, or that may hereafter become incorporated for any of the purposes specified in this chapter, may, if three-fourths of the trustees or directors thereof deem the same proper, or if the institution is owned in shares, or by stock subscribed or taken, by a vote of the holders of threefourths of the stock or shares, change the location of such institution, convey its real estate, and transfer the effects thereof, and invest the same at the place to which such institution may be removed; but no removal shall be ordered, and no vote taken thereon, until after publication in the mannei provided in the last section, in which notice shall be fully set forth the place to which it is proposed to remove such institution; and, in case of removal, a copy of the proceedings of such meeting shall be filed with the secretary of state. 52 v. 77, S 12; S. & C. 268.

$ 3732. When and how college endowment fund diverted

The trustees of a corporation incorporated for the purpose of creating, holding, and managing a college endowment fund, the articles of incorporation of which provide that the fund may be applied to any object not inconsistent with the purposes of education different from that particularly specified therein, may apply to the court of common pleas in the county where the corporation is located for permission to make such change, designating particularly the purposes to which it is proposed to apply the fund; and the court, on being satisfied that such change is not inconsistent with the object of the original creation and institution of the fund, shall authorize and sanction the change. 51 v. 393, § 2; S. & C. 269.

The property of a private eleemosynary corporation, although charged with the maintenance of a college or other “public charity” is private property, within the meaning and protection of that clause of section 19, of article 1, of the constitution of this state, which declares that “private property shall ever be held inviolate.” The result of the statute of April 15, 1892 (89 O. L. 647), giving absolute control and management of the affairs and property of the Cincinnati College to the directors of the University of Cincinnati, is to take the property of the former and donate it to the latter. The statute therefore conflicts with section 19, of article 1, of the constitution of this state, and is void. Ohio v. Neff, 52 Ohio St. 375.

The creation of a fund to pay debt of educational institution is not a consideration for a written promise to contribute thereto, where nothing has been done in reliance on such promise; and acceptance of the promise, agreeing to use the money exclusively to pay the debt, does not give rise to a case of mutual promises which would enable the corporation to collect the note. Johnson v. Otterbein Univ., 41 Ohio St. 527; distinguished in Irwin, Admr., v. Lombard Univ., 56 Ohio St. 9, where it is held that “The consideration for a promissory note executed to an incorporated college is the accomplishment of the purposes for which it is incorporated and in whose aid the note is executed; and such consideration is sufficient."

$ 3734. Certain corporations may increase their property

S. & S. 107

$ 3739. Trustees at large

If the number of the conferences or other religious bodies patronizing any such university or college, the board of trustees of which has been divided into classes as hereinbefore provided, be increased to not exceeding six, the board of trustees shall be enlarged to the extent of one additional class of trustees for each of such additional conferences or other religious bodies, such additional classes to have in each a number of trustees equal to the number in any one of the former classes; and each of such additional conferences or other religious bodies may elect, as members of the board, the number in its class, one for one year, one for two years, and one for three years, and so on to the extent of the number; and each of such additional conferences or other religious bodies may fill any vacancy in its class. And such board of trustees composed according to the foregoing provisions, and the provisions of section thirty-seven hundred and forty-seven of this chapter, without regard to the number of members so composing it, may increase its own numbers by the election of trustees at large, not exceeding the number of conferences or other religious bodies co-operating with or patronizing such university or college, and may divide such trustees at large into classes, at its discretion. 89 O.
