E. Refund of Federal Advance for Plan Preparation.
President Donovan read the following letter from the Comptrol-
Dr. H. L. Donovan, President
University of Kentucky
Dear President Donovan:
By authority of the Executive Committee of the Board
of Trustees on the date of August 25, 1946, I made appli-
cation to the Federal Works Agency, Bureau of Community
Facilities, for an advance of $10,594,58 to be used for
the purpose of financing plan preparation for a building
to house the Department of Journalism and the Kentucky
Kernel. The application was approved. The advancement
was made. Plans and specifications were prepared by
Robert W. McMeekin and Whayne W. Haffler, Architects.
The conditions of the advancement of funds provided
that the money should be repaid to the United States Treas-
ury whenever construction of the Kentucky Kernel and Journal-
ism Building is commenced, By the authority of the Board
of Trustees, the Kentucky State Property and Buildings Conm-
mission approving, this building is now under construction
and the federal advancement of funds is now due to be re-
paid to the United States Treasury.
I, therefore, request approval and direction to refund
to the Treasurer of the United States the sum of $10,594.58.
I suggest that if this request is approved, the Comp-
troller be authorized to take the necessary funds from the
Campus Book Store Account, since all available funds to the
credit of the Kentucky Kernel have been otherwise pledged
toward the construction of this building.
Yours very truly,
(Signed) Frank D. Peterson
