E. Refund of Federal Advance for Plan Preparation. President Donovan read the following letter from the Comptrol- ler: March 21,1950 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 Comptroller
