                        Lexington, Ky. Dec. 10, 1901

To the Board of Trustees of State College


      Your committee on Internal Expansion dubmit the within
report as follows - First we visited every professor in
every department whilst on duty in the class room witnessed
their class work with the students, and a report of same of
each professor, number of students & E-tc. is here submitted
and includes part of our report. We are happy to report
all very satisfactory: Our professors are good men, and
are working faithfully, to truly educate the classes in
their departments. We find three departments short of
room and must have assistance,, they are too valuable to the
students, to the College, and to the State, to be so cramped
for room. First is Prof. Andersons, His Mechanical and
Electrical education is so valuabe that the number of
students is double our proper capacity and must be
enlarged - We must not neglect this.

      We had better drop the classical Latin and Greek than
the practical0 Prof . Pence is so crowded we will be compelled
to divide his class, or have more room0

      Our finances are too short to supply our absolute
necessities. We must cut off salaries, or reduce our
expenses in some other way, or raise more income from our
State, or charge our paying students more tuition fee0

      It was beneficial to Trusteess Professors, and the
students to visit them0 It evidently inspires and brings
life and intelligence.

      We would be glad if every trustee would take the time
to go through every department , visit each professor and
class in their exercises, and speak a few words of cheer.
It will help you, it will help the professors and the
students, and it is your duty. -
