          Attiched, I.. -n estimrc--e of racei-ts and disburse-
     ments for the year, 1922-.1923.

          In this estimai;9 the State tax e-, mv te is based
     on last year' rseeipts.    ..I o-inion is that the re-
     csipts will be lErser thsn those of last year, but I
     do nht thl ink it -.1se to make a 'i:Lrqer estimasts. T'he
     Binsrhem inheritance tex is not consideraed in meking
     the estimate.

          r:he estim-3 of rseceit!s from Vocational 3&uoation
     Bovrd is reduced from that imade in ths Budqe .



     The estimate of student fees and the estimate of
Practice School is based on last semester's receipts.

     The estimate of government student fees is based on
muniber now in attendance.  From total amount, estimated
oxpense for supplies has been deducted.

     Patterson H1hll receipts and expenditures are not in-

     ito estimate is made on University 33.tension fees.
We have received to December 30 from such, $2701.75.   It
is my opinion that it will take more than all the addition-
al receipts to pay the honoraria.

     The estimate of expenditures is based on the prosent
yearts budget and last ;years expenditures.   IL the
budget is not overspen' and no additional appropriations
have been made or wil1 be made, the exccess off receipts
over expenditures will be Increased to about 420,,000O00

     3. Retort on Igsurance.   The following report from the Pres-
id-an of the Unrifvrsity on inmurance was presented to the 2=ecutive

                       RiSPOiT 0I IFirSIT32J

          't the December, 1921, meetinz of the 3oard of Trus-
     -oes, the tecutive Cormittee commented on the desirability
     of reeO7iustina th-e9 insurance on the University plant, with
     fs *4bilt thLt be matter was referred to the 2:tecutive
     Co~.:iwtta for f'urther consideration, nd.d to rnport upon
     -cha wisdom of readjustment'.  This question was discussed
     ;ne referred, at the meeting in Urch, 1922, to the :?res-
     iaent for a report.   Letters exchanged with Clem, SO
     heeler, of Chicago, resulted in hiaymond Graves, Velua-
     tion Bnoineer of the Hartford 2ire Insurance, coming
     to the Univ7ersity in Psbru.xry, 1922.

          The problems involrede in this insurance readjust-
    ment are:

          1. Revaluation of the plants
          2. Repairs rend changes to prevent fire.
          3.  coininmeno   on one policy for all buildings an&
                 contents .

     1   T !he qRievasuation of aant.

         A wpluption o-' the plaint for insurpnce purposes hed
     been made in a rough way by the Board, based upon esti-
     mates given by the Superintendent of Buildinprs and Grounds.
     In coinsurpnce, it is necessary for thd insured to have
     v eluo high enough to protect him and, at the same time,
     .be acceptable to the insurance companies in case o- loss.
     r Ehe expense of making such a valuation by one of the ap-
     -praisal concerns would amount to practically four thoustand
     ? o A1ars .

          Rourth. the cncalusion of this rep)ort is:

          (a) To make an appraisal of --lent by. local experts.
          (b) To place the insurance cn a coinsurance basis.
          (c) No recommendation is made as to time of the change,
     since the :remiums .re paid for the five year period ending
     in 1925.   It way be as vell to continue the -resent system
     until that time since the gain would be small.

    IMy &ear Mr. Peak:

          Replyina to your letter of January 8, I beg to adluise
     that some time in Dece-nlber, the Bingham estate paid to the
     Sheriff of .etfferson County e--roximately $l, 200,000 on ae-
     count of inheritance taxes.



     The Sheriff's office infor!ns me that this amount waas
not remitted to the Auditor until the reguler monthly
statement of the Sheriff to the Auditor for December, went
to Frankfort, wuhich was after 7nuary 1.

     This seems to confirm the stetzement of the Audiltor's
office that no part of the Bingham inheritance tax wans in-
cluded in the amount enaritionsd in your letter.

     It is expected that the balance of the Bingham inherit-
ance taxes will be paid to the Sheriff in February.   I do
not know the amount of that balance, but I am under the im-
pression that it is about the same amount as was paid in
Decernb er.

     With best regards, I beg to remain

                                 Very sincerely yours

                       (Signed) Robert G. Gordon

Dear Doctor UTcVey:

     I received a notice this morning from the Phoenix
National Bank and Trust Comnany that the Liberty Bond note
will be due January 29.   This suggests to me that the Uni-
versity has the following indebtedness evidenced by notes:

     Peabody notes secured. by liberty Bonds, '334,000;
IfcsLughlin notes, G4,500; Aiary C. host notes on Smith Hall,
$9,000; balance of indebtedness on purchase of ..;ulligen
property, 0:.4,750; making a total indebtedness of 4P52,250,
principal, not including interest.   I am making this state-
ment in order that you may use it at the meeting of the Ex-
ecutivs Committee, if you so desire.

     I get from nfewspaper reports that the Bingham estate
has paid the following inheritance taxes: $1,216,618 which
has been paid by the Sheriff of Jefferson County to State
Auditor.   According to my calculations, the University is
entitled to 4?53,227.07 of thet amount which should be paid
February 1.   A later newspaper ranort shows that the Sheriff



     of Jefferson County has collected  l1,154,217 from Bingham
     inheritance taxes which will be paid to the Auditor either
     in January or February.   '-ccording to my calculations the
     University is entitled to .50,496.99 or on the whole a
     total of $103, 724.06.  This, I suppose, is the entire
     amount of inheritance tax, althouth from newspaper reports,
     it seems that a considerable sunn, in ad vEalorem taxes is
     still in controversy.

                                      Very truly

                             (Signed) D. H. Peak

     President M1cVey suggested to the committee that decision be
made at this time as to use of the funds from the Bingham estate.
After discussion, motion was made by 1ir, Colvin and seconded by
Mr. Froman that the funds received from the Bingham estate be used
(1) Por the construction of the new wing to the Chemistry.Building;
(2) 2'or repairs to the Old Chemistry Building so as to permit it
to be used as a Law Building; (3) Temporary repairs to the Wornen's
Gymnasium.   Also that Cooli&ge and Shattuck of Boston, M7assa-
chusetts be asked to prepare -,Ins for a Ifew Chemistry Building.
The motion was carried. It vies the fseling of the members present
that plans should be prseparad immediately for presentation at the
meeting of the Board of Truttees in April in order that the build-
inrqs in question might be made availaeb&   for use by September next.

     5. Plans of Alumni for a Drive for Thnds.    The following com-
munication from the Secretary of the Alumni Association vas pre-

                                       January 8, 1923

     President Prank I. .cVgy

          University of 7Centuchy

     Mfy deer President Mc'7ey:

          We have agreed on the necessity for action on the
     Memorial Building.   There are twco courses open: to an-
     nounce now a plan to build with the funds already availa-
     ble or to announce a plan to rcise an additional sum of
     $100,000 or approximately that and start after it now.

          I think we need an excuso for an immediate and an in-
     tensive drive for the further organization of alumni within
     the next six months, especially for the influence that it


might have on the 1924 General Assembly.     We might try
for a total of $140,000 distributed as follows:

Memorial Building.
Patterson Statue ...............
Studenit Zaan Fund ..............
Shdowment Student Essay Prize ..
Bndo . ment Newspaper Prize ......
    (Education Service)
Alumni Records .................
Miscellaneous ..................

110 ,000
   10 gOOO
   2,500 '


     This sum might be increased to $200,000 allowing
$60,000 to go on a stadium, the remainder of the cost to
be provided by the sale of bonds as proposed by backers
of the stadium plan.

     If the University is to spend 0200,000 on a stadium
and at!Ietic field. I think it should bo on p lot of twenty-
five acres, as a minimum, where there would be room for
recreation of all the students.   Ratsing money for a
field and equipment solely for our varsity teams would not
be popular in the State and even among all the alumni, as
I see it.   I think the latter plan might.

     The $140,000 total would mean )56 for each alumnus,
and $200,000 would be $M80 per capita.

     After discussion, a motion was made by Mr. Colvin and second-
ed by Mr. Froman that the Executive Cemmittee accept tho proposi-
tion of the Alumni Association for t"-ie raising of funds, and that
the Committee pledge its support in such a program.    The motion
was carried.

     6. Application of Kentucky Traction and Terminal Company for
a Y on University Property.   President U~Vey stated to the Com-
mittee that the Kentucky Traction and Terminal Company had made a
request to lease a plot of around on the University farm at the
junction of Rose Street and South Limestone Street for the pur-
pose of constructing a 11Y,' so as to permit them to turn their cars
around at that point.   After discussion, a committee was appoint-
ed, consisting of President MAcVey, Dean Cooper and Senator Froman,
with power to act on the matter.

     7. Dift of *400 by Professor Sax for Lectures.  President
McoVey stated to the Executive Committee that Professor Carol Sax
had given a check for $400, payable to the President of the Un-
iversity, to be expended for lectures during the present year.
A motion was made, seconded, and adopted, expressing appreciation
of the gift.

     8. Record of Stock Judging Team. President McVey brought
to the attention of the Executive Committee the fact that the
stock judging team at the recent International Livestock Exposi-
tion had made an excellent record.   The team was composed of
five men, members of the College of Agriculture, namely, R.EH. Woods;.
C. M. Wade, E, L. Langsford, P. W. I-iller and P. E. Watlington.
The team competed with teams from twenty different states and
countries, and., as a whole, stood eleventh.   In the judging .of
the Separate classes of live stock, they stood first on beef cat-
tle, passing such colleges as Ohio, Indiana, Iowa and Kansas.
They stood seventh on hogs, ninth on sheep and sixteenth on horses..
     A motion was made, seconded and unanimously adopted, authoris-
ing the Presiaent to write a letter to each member of the team, con-
veying the congratulations and best wrishes of the Executive Commit-
tee for the record made.

     9. Sale of Lot on Winslow Street to the C=it  of Lexington.
The following communication from the Secretpry of the Board was



                                          January 25, 1923

    President Frank L. McVey
         University of Kentucky

    My dear Mr. President:

         At the meeting of the 3Bovrd of Trustees in December,
    1921, it was voted that the Board should sell to the City
    of Lexington a lot on Winslow Street, to permit of extend-
    ing Lexington Avenue.   The action of the Board was duly
    reported to the City Attorney, Mr. Townsend.    Although
    his attention was subsequently called to the matter, so
    far as I kInow, nothing has been done.

         Mr. Whipple tells me that he was on an appraising
     committee for the property in question, and that Mr.
     Devereaux objected to the price at which the University

                                       January 26, 1923

     President Frank 1. McVey

          University of Kentucky

     My dear President McVey:

          I am writing to call your attention to the various
     requests of fraternities for building sites on Winslow

          On June 13, 1921, the Kappa Sigma petitioned the
     Board for a building site on the east corner of Lexington
     and Winslow.   The Board told the Fraternity that as soon
     as they were ready to build they would attempt to provide
     a site.

          On May 25, 1922, the Rappa Alpha; petitioned the
     Board for a building site on the northeast corner of
     Lexington and Winslow.   The Board told the Fraternity
     that as soon as they were ready to build a suitable
     site would be provided by the Board.

          On April 4, 1922, the Sigma Chi petitioned the
     Board for a building site on the northeast corner of
     Lexington and WIVinslow.  The Board told the Fraternity
     that as soon as they were ready to build the Board would
     attempt to acquire the site designated provided it could
     be purchased at a reasonable price.

          You will note that all these fraternities want the
     same building site.   I am writing to suggest that the
     matter be cleared up now before any further complica-
     tions arise.

                                       Very truly yours

                                           Wellington, Patrick
                                       Secretary of the Board



     On motion duly seconded the President was authorized to
take this matter up with the various fraternities and designate

     12. Stadium for Athletic Field.   A committee from the
Athletic Council consisting of Dr. W. D. Thxkhouser, Professor
H. E. Curtis, and Superintendent A. 0. Whipple appeared before
the Executive Committee to discuss the question of a stadium
on the athletic field.   Doctor Funkhouser, spokesman for the
committee, stated that the Athletic Council considered that it
is a proper time to begin the erection of a stadium on the
athletic field; that the Alumni and others interested in ath-
letics at the University of Kentucky were in favor of some sort
of program; that the general feeling seemed to be that we ought
to begin the erection of a stadium at the present time; that
the Athletic Council had considered the matter from many angles
and hadrcome to the conclusion that whatever plan might be
worked out would have to be presented to the Executive Committee
or the Board of Trustees for approval; that the Athletic Coun-
cil desired at this time to present the matter to the Executive
Committee and to determine whether or not the Committee thought
it advisable to take up the program and consider it or whether
it would be wise to drop it.   Doctor Funkhouser presented a
tentative sketch which had been drawm by Mr. Whipple showing
what the stadium should be.   Superintendent Whipple presented
figures showing the cost of the stadia that have been erected
in various parts of the country.

versity campus; (2) That President JAcI.ey be asked to consider a
method of raising funds, and that he also be asked to confer with
the E'xecutive Committee of the IMemorial Building Fund to determine
whether or not it is possible or advisable to use the Memorial
