"On motion of Governor Byrnes, seconded by Col. Figg, the recommended inscription was approved as follows: -

This tower with carillon was made possible through the generosity of Charles E. Daniel, Class 1918 and R. Hugh Daniel, Class 1929, and at their request is dedicated to the memory of Thomas D. Howie "The Major of St. Lo" Class 1929 who gave his life on the battlefield of Normandy in the 2nd. World War 1944."
