           C. J. Stephen Watkins Elected to Executive Committee.

           President Donovan reported that Mr. Smith D. Broadbent was a
member of the Executive Committee and since he was not reappointed to the
Board of Trustees, there existed a vacancy on the Executive Committee.

motion duly made, seconded and carried, Mr. J. Stephen Watkins was elect-
ed a member of the Executive Committee.



           D. Investment of Restricted Funds.

           Mr. Peterson reported that it was necessary to liquidate invest-
ments held by the College of Pharmacy in order to produce funds sufficient
to send to Frankfort to permit the issuance of the change order to the




 





3



contract, for the construction of the College of Pharmacy, to accept bid for
equipment. He explained that, in the judgment of the architect, the State
Property and Buildings Commission and the representatives of the University,
the bid submitted for the equipment for the College of Pharmacy was a favor-
able one, and if the University was to take advantage of the bid, it should
act immediately, else the contractor would not be obligated to hold the firm
price longer. He stated that it was necessary to receive approximately
$121, 000. 00 to take care of the bid on equipment, increased architect, s
fees and a small increase in the cost of brick.

           Mr. Peterson reported that the investments held by the College
of Pharmacy were valued at price based upon market quotations as of the
date of the transfer. He recommended that these securities be liquidated
from Account 3330-College of Pharmacy and reinvested in Account 3438,
Campus Book Store.

           Mr. Peterson also recommended investment of any residue of
funds in government insured building and loan association or government bonds.

           Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the Treasurer
was authorized to make the transfer in investments of the College of Pharmacy
to Account 3438; transmit necessary funds to State Treasurer; request the
State Property and Building Commission to accept bid on equipment and issue
necessary change order, and the Vice President, Business Administration,
authorized to invest funds in securities held bV the College of Pharmacy,
building andl oan A~ssociations and government bonds.



           E. Representative to Council on Public Higher Education.

           President Donovan reporred that Mr. Tom Ballantine represented
the University Board of Trustees on the Council on Public Higher Education

tion duly made, seconded and carried, Dr. Ralph J. Angelucci was appointed
a member representing the University on the Council on Public Higher Edu:ca-
tion.

           G. Appointed to Graduate Faculty.

           President Donovan submitted a recommendation from Dr. Herman
E. Spivey, Dean of the Graduate School, recommending appointment of Dr.
Robert Lee Mills as a member of the Graduate Faculty.  Doctor Spivey
reported that Doctor Mills fully rmet the educational and research qualifica-
tions for membership in the Graduate Faculty.

           Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the recommenda-
tion was concurred in and Doctor Mills was appointed a member of the Grad-
uate Faculty.



          H. Anatomy and Physiolog
Joseph W. Pryor.

          President Donovan reported that Dr. Joseph W. Pryor was a
professor of Human and Comparative Anatomy and Physiology, and was as-
sociated with the University since 1889. Dr. Pryor came to the State Col-
lege in 1889 as Medical Examiner, and since that time had been on our
teaching staff or on change-of-work status for a period of 67 years. Dur-
ing this period he has made many outstanding contributions. He was an
authority on the ossification of carpal bones. His first publication in this
field was in 1905. His last was in 1954, He was the first person to use
the x-ray machine as a research tool in physiology and is said to be the first
person south of the Mason-Dixon Line to use the x-ray on human beings.

          Dr. Pryor, at the invitation of Sir Arthur Keith, lectured on os-
sification before the Royal College of Surgeons in London in 1927.




 





A



           Dean M. M. White and his associates recommend that the lab-
oratories of the Department of Anatomy and Physiology be named the Joseph
W. Pryor Laboratories and that a bronze plaque be placed on one of the=walls
in commemoration of " r. Pryor' s contribution to the growth and prestige of
oar Department of Anatomy and Physiology.

           Doctor Donovan stated that he was glad to concur in the recomn-
mendation. He also reported to the Committee that Dr. Pryor, in his 100th
year, had passed away since this recommendation was made and that he was
also glad that Dr. Pryor knew of the recommendation prior to his passing.

           The Committee received the recommendation and on motion duly
made, seconded. and carried, authorized the laboratories of the Department of
Anatomy and. Physiology named the Joseph W. Pryor Laboratories and a bronze
plaque placed on one of the walls of Tfelabratories.



           I. Report on Margaret Voorhies Hagin Trust Fund.

           President Donovan read a letter which he had received from
trustees of the Margaret Voorhies Haggin trust fund indicating that the div-
idends credited on stock of the Kern County Land Company would be reduced
from 50% to 10%.  This would have the effect of increasing the income dis-
tributable to the University.  President Donovan stated he knew the Committee
members were glad to get this information, as well as he wa.s.

           The President reported that for the past several years the income
from the Haggin Trust has amounted to approximately $60, 000 par annum.
Much of this income has been spent for desirable and highly important activ-
ities that the state has not ordinarily provided for out of funds derived from
taxes. Some examples of expenditures paid for out of these funds are:

           (a) Scholarships and fellowships ranging from $500 per annum
to $1200 per annum to exceptional graduate students that they might continue
their education;

           (b) Supplements to salaries of administrative officials and pro-
fessors above the legal constitutional) limi t of $5,000 per annum, and later
the statutory limitation of $9, 000 per annum that key personnel might be held
at the University,

           (c) The purchase of an organ costing $35, 000 for Memorial Hall;

           (d) Grants to the Library to fill in gaps in our collection that
were greatly needed but could not be purchased because of lack of funds for
the Library.  These extra grants have probably amounted to at least $50,000;

           (e) The purchase of property adjacent to the college campus that
the University needed but could not acquire from other funds;

           (f) The necessary expenditures for holding on the campus desir-
able educational meetings and conferences for the promotion of the general
welfare of our citizens as wveY.. as the education of our students.




 









            Trustees of the Fund indicated that the income from the Haggin
Trust would be somewhat larger during the next few years which leads me
to make the suggestion to the Board of Trustees that a certain amount of
the income should be set aside for a building that would be erected some-
time in the future and named in honor of Mrs. Margaret Voorhies Haggin,
who set up the original trust.

            The late President Frank L. McVey talked with me on a number
of occasions and told me that he had always wanted to build a Museum for
the University and that he thought the erection of the building should be paid
for out of the Haggin Trust Funds.  He did not think that the state would
in the near future erect a Museum on the campus and, therefore, it would
be quite desirable to plan to have this building paid for out of the Haggin
Trust Funds.

           I should like to go on record at this time as concurring in the
desire Dr. McVey had and record in these minutes that I hope that in the
near future the Board of Trustees will authorize the expenditure of at
least half a million dollars for a Museum that will be named the Margaret
Voorhies Haggin Museum.  There is probably as much as $300,000 to
$350, 000 being held today that could be expended on such a building if and
when the President and the Trustees agree that this action should be taken.






           Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the report was
ordered received and made of record.



           J. Graduate Fellowships Approved.

           President Donovan stated that he was in receipt of a letter from
Dr. Herman E. Spivey, Dean of the Graduate School, requesting approval of
two additional graduate fellowships at $750. 00 each out of the Haggin Fund.
He pointed out that the present regulations of the Board provide for four
fellowships and 15 scholarships from the Haggin Fund, which is the same
number authorized ten years or more ago. He pointed out that the enroll-
ment of the Graduate School had greatly increased and that it was self-evi-
dent that the fellowship grants should be increased in keeping with the in-
creased enrollment of the University.

           President Donovan concurred in the recommendation, and upon
motion duly made, seconded and carried, the Haggin Fund fellowships were
increased from four to six at $750. 00 each,



           K. $1, 000. 00 Appropriated for High School Principals Conference.

           President Donovan stated that he thought it necessary to bring
high school principals and University personnel closer together in under-
standing and appreciation of the problems each faces relative to high school
students desiring to go to college.




 









           He suggested that a conference be called at the University which
would probably last for one day, at which conference more than 50 principals,
together with some senior advisers, would be invited. He stated that he had
high hopes of what such a conference could accomplish and recommended
the sum of $1, 000. 00 be appropriated to bear the expense incident to the con-
ference.

           Members of the Committee received the recommendation with
keen interest, and upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the sum
of $1, 000. 00 wvas appropriated for expenses, and the Comptroller was au-
thorized to make the necessary budget adjustmens.



           L. $5 000 Appropriated for 100 Summer School Aids.

           President Donovan stated that it was the general opinion of a large
segment of educators that additional emphasis should be placed on the teach-
ing of English, mathematics, chemistry and physics.  He recommended that
the sum of $5, 000. 00 be appropriated from the Haggin Fund to set up 100
scholarships valued at $50. 00 each to bring to the campus instructors in the
state teaching in these fields, coming from high schools which have not had
the best opportunities. He said that he thought that teachers coming from
the small rural high schools might benefit most from such courses and that
it might afford a great opportunity to upgrade the preparation of a number
of our public school teachenS,.

           Members of the Committee received the recommendation with
enthusiasm, and upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, authorized
the sum of $5, 000 appropriated from the Haggin Fund for 100 scholarships
valued at $50. 00 each.



           M. Injury to Delbert Siler,

           Mr. Peterson reported an injury sustained by Delbert Siler.
His thumb was broken. He was given office treatments on November 10,
12 and 15 by Dr. Olson Parrott, of Versailles, Ky.  Dr. Parrott has sub-
mitted invoice for $9, 00 for professional services. Mr. Peterson recom-
mended that the invoice be paid,

           On motion duly made, seconded and carried, the invoice of Dr.
Olson Parrott in the sum of $9. 00 was ordered paid, with the understanding
that the University does not admit negligence nor does it establish a precedent
in the payment of this bill,



           N. Architect for Phi De'ta Theta House.

                                            March 19, 1956


         President H. L. Donovan
         University of Kentucky
         Administration Building

         Dear President Donovan:

                The house corporation of the Phi Delta Theta fra-
         ternity has made available to the University through a trans-
         fer of property and cash the sum of $18, 000 which has been
         used toward acquiring a site at 338 Clifton for a new fraterni-
         ty house to be constructed during the year.

                The fraternity and house corporation members request-
         ed that W. B. Brock, a fraternity member and an architect, be
         selected to draw plans and specifications for the building.  I
         have negotiated on an architect fee of 5. 9% of the contract price
         for the construction of one building and if two buildings of sim-
         ilar design are constructed, the additional fee will be 30% of
         the original fee plus actual costs of design and drafting time
         required to fit the second building to different topographical
         conditions and minor elevation changes.  In other words the
         fee for one building is 5. 9% and for the second building 1. 77%o
         or an average of 3. 8% for the two.  At the time we were ne-
         gotiating with Mr. Brock the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity
         was very much interested in the second lot.  Since that time
         they have withdrawn and one of the other fraternities has indi-
         cated strong interest but presently no agreement has been
         reached.  I would like approval of W. B. Brock as the architect
         for the Phi Delta Theta fraternity.

                                            Very truly yours,


                         (Signed)          Frank D. Peterson
                                            Vice President
                                            Business Administration



           Mr. Peterson recommended that W. B. Brock be employed to do
the architectural work on the terms stipulated.

           Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, Mr. Peterson was
authorized to negotiate a contract for architect? s services in accordance with
agreement.

         Dr. H. L. Donovan, President
         University of Kentucky
         Administration Building

         Dear Dr. Donovan:

                The Phi Delta Theta fratern;,Iy and House Corporation
        have indicated great i.nterest in Immediate construction of a
        fraternity house. Thk..s house is to be constructed through
        funds received from the issuance of interest-bearing revenue
        bonds.  The house is designed to cost somewhere between
        $120, 0Q0 and $125,000,  ' have fixed a maximum that may be
        spent for all purposes including legal fee, advertising costs
        of the bond issue, architects s fee and interest during construc-
        tion at $135, 000. This wil be a small bond issue and the ex-
        penses incident to a small. bond issue are near'y as much as
        that connected with a larger one.  I have engaged The Banker' s
        Bond Company as the fiscal agent at a fee of 1 3/4% of $135, 000
        with the understanding that they are to pay all legal expenses,
        advertising costs, perspectus and do the promotion work neces-
        sary to put these bonds before the bond-buying public.  i might
        add that this is not a favorable time for the issuance of interest-
        bearing bonds.  Interest rates have been stiffening for the last
        three or four months,  i would be hopeful of securing a price
        of par for 3 1/4% bcnds,  It could go higher.

               I am having a meeting with the members of Phi Delta
        Theta fraternity and the House Corporation to acquaint them
        with the cost of rent on th-is building which will be sufficient
        to amortize the indebtedness, pay the interest and insurance
        carried on the building over a period of forty years.

                                          Very truly yours,

                         i'Signed'       Frank D. Peterson
                                          Vice President
                                          Business Administration



           Mr. Peterson recommended that The Banker, s Bond Company
be employed as a fisca.l agent.  *Jpon motion duly made. seconded and car-
ried, the recommendation vas concurred in and the BankerX s Bond Company
was authorized employed as a fi.scal agen.',

           The University of Kentucky chapter of American Association o 
University Professors submitted to the Executive Committee of the Beard
of Trustees at its meeting on January 20, 1956, a request which was re--
ceived by the Executive Committee, and the members of the Executive Com-
