Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

President- I have never heard a word of it before. It may have been done, but I have never heard of it. Mr. Stoll- 1 do not think they sh7nuld be reprimanded in the class room. Mr. !Ac~ee- Do you think that the punishment for jeering should come under the same rule as any other? Mr. Brown- I think it should be left to the Commandant and his discretion. Mr. Stoll- I agree with you, do not believe it is the duty of a professor to reprimand any man who interferes with his class. I believe it is the duty of the President of the University to see that this is done because Cantain TFairfax is trying to teach Military Science just as Doctor Tuttle ts teaching Chemistry, and if a boy tried to raise sand in Doctor Tuttleld class, it would be his duty to report it to the pro- per authorities, else Doctor Tuttle doing his duty would bring down upon himself undeserved orium from the rest of the boys. Captain Jrairfax doesn't want to bring that odium upon him- self any more than the others, nor does he want to make his department -unpopular. Captain Fairfax- Unpopularity is feared little by a man who does his duty, and I don't shrink from that. Mr. Brown- I don't think that Captain Fairfax is in the same position as professors in the class room. He is head of the discipline of the campus, and he is the man to see that discipline is maintained. 'he men we have had heretofore have found it hard to keep discipline. captain Fairfax- I don't take that autocratic power, bat I do think that I should have the power to act anywhere and if a boy makes a face at another, it ought to be in my power to reprimand him and to handle the case right there. r. Stoll- Of course, this is a smatter on which even Captain Fairfax, who has given the matter some thought, is not prepared to Take any recommendations. I think it would be r11 to instruct resident Barker and Capotain Fairfex and, this other committee to make recommendations to this Cominittee what should be done, at the next regular meeting. Donet you thinl Captain that is better? Captain Fairfax- I think I should have the power to repri- mand. Ur. Stoll- That is inherent. Mr. Z~rown- I think that it shouald be known that they should have all due respect to the Military Department. Captain Fairfax- It wouldn't do any harm to com2 out on paper and make that statement to the student body. t would show my hand and the rresident's. After the United States uniforms are donned, if you choose
