All appointments will continue to be made as they have been made by the processes established by the Board of Trustees. The University of Kentucky is far too good and far too big for anybody to buy it. It has never been for sale, is not now for sale, and never will be for sale.

There being none, on motion by Mr. Kincaid, seconded by Mr. Griffin and passed unanimously, PR 2 was approved as a whole and ordered made an official part of the Minutes of the meeting.
