Authority of trustees to dispose of property.

The Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama may sell, lease or otherwise dispose of, all or any part of such land as has been or may be selected under and by virtue of an act of Congress entitled, "An act to increase the endowment of the University of Alabama from the public school lands in said state," approved April 23, 1884, and may sell lands or any interest therein or part thereof for such prices and upon such terms as to it may seem proper. Such sales may be for cash or for part cash, and the said Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama shall not be limited by any statute heretofore enacted as to what part of the purchase price of such lands which it has heretofore sold or may hereafter sell shall be in cash, but the percent of the purchase price of such lands that may have been or shall be in cash shall be such as said Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama may agree upon with the purchaser or purchasers.
