     The minutes of the December Meeting were read by Judge W. T. Lafferty, and on

motion were duly approved.

     The Secretary then read the minutes of the Executive Committee.

     Motion was made, seconded end carried that the minutes be adopted as read, ex-

cept that part Ysich related to Miss Kinkead and Professor Mackenzie.

     Dr. Tnmes K. Patterson then said he had failed to receive copies of the minutes

of the Executive Committee and would like to know if the other members of the Board

had been so fortunate as to receive copies. Judge Lafferty asked all the members of

the Board who were present if they had received copies of the minutes of the Executive

Committee. Each one answered that he had.    Miss Emily McCann, the young lady who

sends out these reports was called before the Board and asked if she had mailed copies

of the Minutes of the Executive Committee to every member of the Board. She answered

that she had. She was then asked if she remembered mailing a copy to Dr. Patterson

each time and she said she did.

 read by Mr. R. C. Stoll.

     Motion was made, seconded and carried that the minutes be approved as read.

     President Barker then read his annual report, which is as follows:

                                           Lexington, Ky. Tune 1, 1914.

To the Board of Trustees,

   State University of Kentucky.

Gentlemen: -

           I have the honor to present to you herewith y official report as President

of the University, for the session of 1913-14.

     Our roster roll for the session does not show as great an increase over the pre-

ceding year as we had hoped for. This is owing largely to the disastrous drought

throughout Kentucky during the summer of 1913, which so reduced the income of the

farmers of Kentucky as to make it necessary for them to economize, and this kept a

great many from sending their sons and daughters to the University. But after Onl, our

total roster roll did increase slightly for the past session, and, under all the cir-

cumstances, I believe that we are to be congratulated on the outcome.

     The conduct of the students has been exceptionally good and the discipline on

the campus was never finer in the history of the University.

     When your honorable body meets, I hope to have before you a financial statement

covering the whole University, 'which information will show that we have lived sub-

stantially within our income. The statement will speak for itself Ead you will see

at a glanc6 how the money has been expended - Iat for and who got it.

     Since you were in session last, we have had a meeting of the General Assembly of

the Commonwealth of Kentuckyr, and I regret to say that we were unable to obtain from

that body any recognition of the great needs of the institution for more money in

order to make it do the great work that is incumbent upon it. The finances of the

Tune 2, 1914



State were found to be in quite a disastrous condition from the standpoint of the

Legislator, and it was impossible to get a serious consideration of any proposition

which looked to the appropriation of additional funds from the State treasury. Two

of your number were members of the General Assembly and these will bear me out in

the statement I am making on this subject. While we are greatly disappointed in not

obtaining additional appropriations, still, we will go forward bravely, doing the best

we can with what we have, keeping in view always that this institution must make itself

useful to the Commonwealth before it can hope to obtain that recognition in a financial

way which is necessary to make it a great University.

     While we have not received any money at the hands of the State of Kentucky, I am

pleased to say to you that the Congress of the United States has passed what is known

as the Smith-Lever Bill, under the terms of which we shall receive $10,000 for Exten-

sion Work in Agriculture. Wie shall also receive additional money from a general fund

created by Congress for the upbuilding of agriculture in the South. In the aggregate,

I hope and believe that this University will receive about $40,0O0 for Extension Work

in Agriculture from the United States within the coming twelve months.

     Under the terms of the Smith-Lever Bill, the amount each year is increased, and I

sincerely believe that in the next five or six years, we shall be getting from $60,000

to $70,000 a year from the Government for scientific work among the farmers in Kentucky.

The University will obtain a large reflex benefit from the expenditure of this money

among the farmers. Just in proportion as the farmer sees that the University benefits

him in a material way, he becomes its friend and supporter; and as he dominates the

Legislature, if he is our friend, wie can hope to obtain in a few years aslarge appro-

priations as did the State Universities to the north of us.

     Last Fall, I visited the State Universities of Ohio and Illinois. The first has

an income of $1,000,000 a year, and the second, an income of $3,OOO,OOO a year. I

received a very interesting history of these two Universities from their Presidents.

I have also talked with an alumnus of our University, Professor Anderson, of Ann Arbor,

Tune 2, 1914



Michigan. All of these gentlemen informed me that their respective universities,

fifteen years ago, were as poor as we, and with as little standing in the eyes of the

Legislature as we have now. But at that time, they commenced a campaign of building

up the agriculture of the states in which the institutions are situated, with the

result that now the President of neither of these institutions ever finds it necessary

to go to the Legislature in person at all. He merely writes out a statement showing

his needs and never fails to get all that he asks for and frequently more than he asks.

All of my informants encourgaged me to believe that the same thing could be done in

Kentucky and that if this had been done fifteen years ago, as it was in those institu-

tions, we would now be enjoying an income relatively as great as the incomes of the

institutions of which I speak.

     This is not said in the spirit of criticism but simply to record the facts as a

basis for the hope that we are not always to have so poor a standing in the Legislature

as this University has had in the past.

     Under the permission of the Executive Committee and of the Board of Control of the

Experiment Station, I established a well-equipped printing office in the basement of the

Educational Building and put it in charge of Mr. Clarence Egbert, a first-class printer.

The total outlay amounted to $6,000, two-thirds of which was paid by the Experiment

Station and the remaining one-third came out of the University funds, and the respective

institutions own the plant in that proportion. The experiment has been a great success

and I am informed, and believe, that there is a net profit made each week of at least

$50.00. Mr. Egbert thinks more; but I have put it down to this conservative figure,

and I am willing to assert that this profit is correct. The possession of the printing

plant not only enables us to save a large amount of money each year on our printing

bill, but enables us to do a great deal more printing at less cost than in previous

years. A large part of our printing bill is made in getting out bulletins from the

Agricultural College and Experiment Station, and I am informed by Dr. Kastle that he

Tune 2, 1914



never had as good printing done before. In short, the work of our plant is entirely

satisfactory to him. IWle printed this year our own catalogue and will place before

each of you a copy of it so that you may see for yourself the kind of work we are able

to do.

     In addition to all that I have said above, we axe giving employment to several

students, thus aiding them to get through the University, -which they could not do but

for the money they made in the printing department. This printing press constitutes

a good working basis for the establishment of a School of Tournalism. You will recall

that I urged this upon your attention last Fune, but by a close vote you decided to

limit our new enterprise to the printing press. The latter has proved so unqualified a

success, however, that I feel emboldened to press the establishment of the School of

Journalism upon you for the coming year. I know of no one thing so fraught with good for

the University as this. In the first place, such a school would do more to teach the

students taking the course, to write good English, than any other mode of teaching; and

in the second, it would enable us to establish a weekly paper which could be made to

contain far more agricultural information than the average farmer's journal. The pro-

fessors and students of the Agricultural College and Experiment Station now furnish

enough scientific agricultural information, weekly, to various farm papers to more than

sustain our proposed paper.

     In addition to the agricultural element of the paper, we would have space for the

Law School, for the several Engineering Schools and for the Arts and Science College.

     Bear in mind that the editorial work will cost nothing, the printing will be done

at actual cost, and it can at once be seen that its success is absolutely certain.

The advertisements would more than support it and it could be sent to the people of

Kentucky interested in its contents, practically free. No greater advertisement could

possibly be done for the University than the establishment of this School of journalism

and the issuance of a college paper which will convey valuable scientific information to

the people of the Commonwealth, at the lowest possible price.



      The General Assembly at its last session passed an act giving the Alumni repre-

 sentation on the Board. This will increase the number of your membership to twenty-

 four, but I look for great good to flow from interesting the Alunni actively in the

 up-building of the University. The law pakes it incumbent upon you at this meeting to

 prepare and promilgate the proper paraphernalia for holding the first election in Dec-

 ember next; one of your number, himself an alumnus as well as a most competent lawyer,

 Mr. R. C. Stoll, has kindly prepared the election material required by the act and

 will present it to you for your approval.

     Since your last meeting, two scholarships have been donated to the University by

the Fleishman Company, of Cincinnati end New York, for the purpose of graduate research

work in the Food and Drag Department, affecting chemical, bacteriological and other

problems connected with the baking industry. The conditions of the scholarship are,

namely: that the student shall be a graduate of some college or university with the

bachelor's degree, and shall continue in the scholarship work for a period of two years.

The scholarships pay each $500.00 annually. This makes three scholarships donated to

the University within the last two years; they amount in the aggregate to $1250.

     In closing, I desire to say that while the whole University is progressing as fast

as is possible under the circumstances, I desire especially to call your attention to

the rapid development of the Agricultural School, as shown by the report of its Dean

to me, a copy of which was sent to each member of this Board; if you have read that

report, anything more on the subject will be mere surplusage; if you have not read it,

then let me beg that you will do so at your earliest convenience. That report shows

the great and splendid work this department is doing to build up the material wealth

of the State. I adopt that report as a part of mine to you, as showing far better than

my feeble words, how rapidly scientific agriculture is forging to the front in Kentucky.

I believe the time is not far distant when this University will be the very heart of

Kentucky's material development; that it will stand towards this Commonwealth as the

State University of Wisconsin stand to that State.

Tune 2, 1914



    We have for graduation a class of one hundred and twenty-nine students. No

finer set of young men and young women ever graduated from an institution of learning,

and I predict for them a most successful future. Wie have made special preparation

for an interesting Commencement; we expect a great many of our Alumni who have been in-

vited to come back to their Alma Mater on this occasion to renew their allegiance to

her interests.

                                          Very respectfully submitted,

                                     (Signed)    H. S. Barker.

     The Report on Rules and Regulations for the Election of Alumni Members to the

Board of Trustees of State University was read by Mr. Stoll, which is as follows:

                                              "JLexington, Ky. June 2, 1914.

To the Board of Trustees,

   State University, Lexington, Kentucky.


           You are aware that the last General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky

adopted an Act entitled, "An Act To Provide For The Election Of Alumni Members To The

Board Of Trustees Of The State University, Lexington, Kentucky, And For The Appointment

Of Such Alumni Members On The Executive Committee Of The University," and this bill

has been properly approved by the Governor of the Commonwealth.

     The bill provides among other things that the election shall be held under rules

and regulations prescribed by the Board of Trustees of the University.

     At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the University, I was asked to formulate

these rules and regulations, and to submit mr report to this Board. I have been in

conmmunication with W. J. Irvine Lyle, President of the Alumni Association of the Uni-

versity, and asked him to appoint a committee of the Alumni to assist me in the prepara-

tion of these rules and regulations. Mr. Iyle appointed Miss Marguerite McLaughlin,

June 2, 1914



Mr. George B. Carey and Mr. J. D. Turner on that committee, and the rules and regula-

tions hereinafter referred to have the sanction of the Alumni Committee.

      Shortly after the Act above referred to was adopted, the question arose as to

whether the members of the Alumni of the University to be elected on the Board of

Trustees shall be residents and citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This ques-

tion was submitted by me to the Eon. Jones Garnett, Attorney General of the Common-

wealth, and he gave me his opinion in a letter dated May 13, 1914, and in this letter

he says:

            "It is my opinion that each member of the Board of Trustees

       of the University is an officer of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and

       that they should all be citizens of the State of Kentucky."

     I attach hereto the original opinion of the Attorney General.

     I am attaching hereto the rules and regulations prepared by me and the Alumni

Committee for the election of Alumni members to the Board of Trustees of the University.

                                             Respectfully submitted,

                                      (signed)  Richard C. Stoll."

Hon. Richard C. Stoll,

   Lexington, Kentucky.

Dear Sir:-

         I have your letter of May 11, 1914, in which you ask if the six trustees

authorized to be nominated by the Alumni of the University and appointed by the Gover-

nor, by House Bill No. 524, are required to be residents of the State of Kentucky.

     "The trustees nominated by the Alumni are appointed by the Governor, and to have

concurrent authority with the other trustees appointed by the Governor over certain

property owned by the Commonwealth of Kentucky and designated and known as the Univer-

Sune, 2. 1914



sity.  If these trustees are officers of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, section 234

of the Constitution requires that they shall be residents of the State of Kentucky.

     "An office is based upon some provision of the law and the person selected to

carry out that provision of the law would be termed an officer if he is given the

right to participate in the exercise of the powers or the performance of any executive

duties. The Board of Trustees of the State University are the agents of the Common-

wealth of Kentucky provided by law for the purpose of exercising executive authority

over that branch of the State's business. They have control of valuable property be-

longing to the State of Kentucky, and direct the expenditure of large sums of money.

They employ sub-agents for the purpose of carrying out the directions of the Legisla-

ture, and have certain power and authority over these agents who in turn are required

to instruct the scholars who are enrolled in the University.

     "It is my opinion that each member of the Board of Trustees of the University is

an officer of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and that they should all be citizens of the

State of Kentuclky.

      "With kindest regards, I am

                                        Yours truly,
