been reserved for those needing overnight accommodations.

In reviewing his "Report to the Trustees," copies of which were
distributed earlier, President Singletary called attention to (1) the
$959,000 National Institutes of Health grant in support of the Cholesterol
and Cardiovascular Risk Reduction Program, (2) the development efforts in
the Community College System which have brought in $1 million, (3) a series
of joint research seminars conducted by the University and the IBM
Corporation, and (4) the annual Distinguished Professor Lecture which will
be given at 8 p.m. tonight by College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished
Professor Joseph A. Bryant, Jr.
President Singletary indicated his pleasure in reporting that he had
received notification from an individual who wished to remain anonymous
that he had signed a Codicil to his Will leaving the University of Kentucky
$1 million. Mr. McCowan stated that he had received a copy of the letter
received by President Singletary and read the following excerpt:
This is being done in your honor, and although I wish it to
be anonymous at the moment, there is no reason not to include
it in your 1987 pledges. Should a project develop of interest
..we would consider prepayment.
Let me tell you in a simple word that you have been a magnificent
President of the University, have made many friends, and will be
missed in your official capacity. Lexington is fortunate that you
will continue to live here.
Mr. McCowan expressed his appreciation for President Singletary's
many contributions to the University and the Commonwealth of Kentucky,
following which President Singletary was given a round of applause.

Jones, seconded by Professor Driscoll and carried, the routine personnel
