Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

Since my last renort, I have received a letter from Doctor Crossfield, ac enting your offer of the Athletic field for the comigg Thanksgiving game. He requested that I tender to the Executive Committee his sincere thanks for this courtesy. I told Doctor Crossfield thRt our Athletic Committee would hold themselves in readiness to do any- t.h:ing in their power to make their game a success. Respectfully, Henry S. Barker. President. Acting upon suggestion of President arker, r. Brown moved that the cafteria be leased to John P. -Ricketts and Floyd Potts until the first of the year at a nominal ren- tal. Seconded by Mr. Johnston, the motion was carried by the following vote. 11essrs. Brown, Nichols, and Johnston voting aye, Mr. Stoll voting no. Judge Barker was then instructed to draw up a contract with Messrs. Ricketts and Potts in which it was to be specifically set out that the University assumed no liability for any debts @ a- tracted by the tenants and that the President give such notice as he deemed fit to such merchants and dealers as these tenants may have occasion to ao business with. W~ith reference to the President's report on the action of the Discinline Gommittee which investigated charges aghinst students for outrages on the night of October 31, Mr. Brown and Mr. Stoll questioned the advisability of the Discipline Committeelo finding in cases of hair-cutting. President Barker said they ha-) 1ifficult7 In ascertain- ing who did the hair-cutting; in fact could not ascertain it and stated that in some instances boys whose hatr had been cut, declared they did not know who cut it and in other Instances *aid they had :cat their otin hair. Mr. Stoll contended that the idea of a boy cutting his own hair was absolutely ridiculous and in his own judgment should be punished as such statement was, in its very, nature a falsehood. In this connection, Mr. StolL counseled stricter discipline in the Univererty and incidentally remarked that a certain Commonwealthms attorney of his acquaintance had told him he would not send his boy to the University of Kentucky because of its lack of discipline. Mr. Brown referred t'.! a slmilar case from Scott ounty. 1he report of Cenn W. E. wowe of the ollege of Givil Engineering was read, acceroted and ordered spread upon the minutes as follows: November 15, 1916 President Henry S. Barker, University of Ky. Dear Sir:
