     President Barker made a reoort as - o the facts leading up
to the building and eauipping of State Hall, which was ordered
to be filed and recorded.

To the Executive Qommittee.
0Pf the Board of Trrus&ees,
State University of entucky.

     in accordance with your order I lay before you this morn-
ing copies of all your official action in regard to "State Hall.*
coamoonly called the Oafettria, which is as follows:

At'& meeting of the Executive Committee, July 17th, 1914, the
following order was made. It annearing that the budget provides
so that $2.500.00 may be s'nent for the erection of a o0m1ons
where meals may be furnished young men who are students in the
University, at actual cost; upon motion made and seconded
$2,500.00 was appropriated for the purpose of erecting a Commons
building. Upon the call of yeas and nays, Messrs. Nichols,
Edelen and Terrell voted yea, and Mr. Stoll voted no. Again at
a meeting held Srptember 5th, 1914, this entry wvs made. Mr.
Stoll suggested Tchat at a former meeting of the 2xecutive Committee
Judge Lafferty, Secretary of the Board, stated that the Cafe.
teria or the University Commons would be operated without any
expense to the College, that is to say, that the   ollege would
erect a building to cost $2,500.00. and that there would be no
further expense to the ollege of any kind in operating thi8
Cafeteria. Mr. Stoll suggested that this statement should be
recorded in the minautes of the last meeting as it was not done.
Judge Lafferty being present at this meeting made the statement
again to the effect that it is the plan to conduct the Cafeter-
la so that the amount in savings can be made. so as to meet the
exOense of equipment to make It self-sustaining. "'lso that the
amount expended in the erecting and equipning of the buildiag
is as follows:
                Building and plumbing ......... $3046.13
                Equipment etc ................. 12122,L._
                                     Total..... 5168.62

                                     .excess ... $2668.62

I also bring before you the accounts of 'State Hall' for last
year as they, appear upon the books of the University.  These
show a deficit of, in round numbers $3800.00.   I do not believe
that this deficit constitutes and Indebtedness of the Univer-
sity,  "State Hall is an institution established for the bene-
fit of the studente, to be orerated by them with the money they

vision of the institution, the suoervision that it exerctese

Association. Both of these institutions, if I may use that
term, are supervised and regulated in somewhat by the author-
ities of the Universitylt but it is in n-o wise true that the
University is responsible for the indebtedness of either. "o-
body dealing with Patterson Hall or the Atkeotio Association
*ev:Cr dreams that State University is responsible for their debts
if ty extend credit to them. -s an illustration, only this
summer the Atiletic Association borrowed in bakk $2000.00 to im-
groTe Stoll Xiel&. exeouting its note for this sum with the
resident of the University and the members of the Athletic
Committee as rersonal surety thereon. Wooody thinks. or thoul1t,3$
that the University has anything to do with this debt. and the
Bank in no wise looks to it for payment.   Iffthe coming season
should be disasterous, the Athletic Association and not the
Unieresity will be the loser.

     !he account of 'State dallt waa kept on the books of the
University but this was a matter of accommodation and necessary
oversirht. In the same way, Patterson Hall and the Athletic
Association figure on the books of the University.

     In conclusion I desire to say that nothing relating to
'State Hall," excent in regard to the building, has ever been
brought to the attention of the ixecutive Gommittee, because it
was not thought that it cAme within the jurisdiction of the
Exec utive Committee, or that its debts were in any wise the
debts of the University.

                                 Very respectfully submitted,

                                 (signed) 'enry S. Barker.

     After discussing the state %all matter to some extent,
the whold question was continued to the next meeting.

     At thi8 moment the Lxecutive Gommittee went into Executive
Session, then resnmed its regular business and dopted the
following resolution:

     RESOLVED that R.C. Stoll, Howel Davies and Dr. Joe Kastle
be made a committee with directions to go to 4ashington to take
uP with the Federal Agricultural Department, all onestions con-
cerning what is known as the lever 6ill which is now being con-
sidered by this board.

The meeting then adjourned.
