Kentucky, July 20, 1921.

opinion that the loss of Doctor McVey to the University at this time Would.
be irreparable, and that he should be urged to stay and remain as President
of the University of Kentucky.

remain in Kentucky at a personal financial sacrifice, and thereupon the fol-
lowing resolution was offered, and after being fully discussed and consid-
ered, was carried:  BE IT RESOLVED, that the salary of Doctor M.1cVey be in-
oreased by adding thereto the sum of Two Thousand ($2,000) Dollars per annum,
beginning as of July, 1921.

     Thereafter the Committee discussed the matter fully with Doctor MloVey,

of the University of Kentucky.   Doctor McVey stated to the Committee that
bh would take the matter under consideration.
