Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the minutes of the Board of Trustees of December 20, 1955; the minutes of the Executive Committee of January 20 and March 19, 1956, were approved as published; and the minutes of the Executive Committee of February 20, 1956, were approved with the correc- tion above stated and the insertion of the following statement: For at least two or three years the Alumni Association of the University of Kentucky has been engaged in working on plans for a greatly expanded annual program of giving by the alumni to the University. Many other universities have long since established alumni funds and quite a number of them have received many tens of thousands of dollars annually. The Association here has drawn upon the experience of other institutions and has gradually developed its plans to the point of consummation. Last Monday the Executive Committee of the Association approved a proposed agreement between the Association and the University which I am recommending that you approve today on behalf of the University.
