(See PR 4 at the end of the Minutes. ) G. Operating Budget for 1966-67 Approved Dr. Oswald indicated that he wished Dr. Albright and Mr. Kerley to make the formal presentation of the budget but would like to make a few cpmments first. He said the budget document represents the internal breakdown of (a) state funds that were appropriated by the 1966-67 Legislature, and lb) estimated income from fees, sales and services; hospital; and other activities of the University. The budget, he emphasized, is the financial expression of the University's educational programs. He then read the following points from his letter of transmittal which highlighted several features embraced in the budget document: 1. Salary increments for faculty based upon merit and aimed to keep the University in as competitive a position as possible 2. Salary increments for faculty for promotion in rank 3. Continuance of the summer faculty research fellow- ships and the faculty fellowships for the improvement of teaching 4. Provision for 100 new faculty positions in instruction and research to serve increased enrollments, esti- mated at 12 per cent on the Lexington campus, and to strengthen existing programs; these positions barely provide for the maintenance of the present student - faculty ratios
