       M. Recommendation to Abolish Student Athletics Fee Presented (TR 1)

       The Chairman called on Mr. Wendelsdorf to present the two recom-
mendations which he had submitted for consideration at the May meeting. Mr.
Wendelsdorf stated that he had learned since submitting his recommendation
relative to the abolition of student athletics fees that the Board of Trustees does
not have the power to raise or lower fees and, therefore, wished to amend the
proposal which had been mailed to the Board members in advance of the meeting
so that it would read as follows:

       Recommendation: that the Board of Trustees recomnmend to the Council
on Public Higher Education the following proposal:

       The athletics fee of $6. 25 per full-time student per semester now
assessed as part of the mandatory activities fee be abolished, and the combined
tuition-activities fee be reduced accordingly beginning with the fall 1973
semester. This regulation shall in no way infringe upon the power of the
Athletics Association Board of Directors to develop a student athletics program
based upon voluntary fee payments.

       In support of his recommendation, Mr. Wendelsdorf then read his
Rationale for Abolition of Athletics Fee, copies of which he distributed to
members of the Board and a copy of which is included at the end of the Minutes.
Following the reading of the rationale, Mr. Wendelsdorf moved adoption of his
amended resolution. The motion died for lack of a second. (See TR 1 and the
Rationale for Abolition of Athletics Fee at the end of the Minutes.

       N. Resolution Regarding Public Meetings Withdrawn (TR 2)

Mr. Wendelsdorf indicated that he wished to withdrawv his recommendation



relative to public meetings since he had reached the conclusion that it would
create more problems than it would solve. He then requested permission to
say a few words since this wvs his last meeting. Permission being granted by
the Chairman, Mr. Wendelsdorf noted sorne of the changes in the Board's
approach to student problems during his two years as a student member of the
Board and urged the Board to come to grips with some of the problems still

       In closing he commented that he had been guilty of "snap judgments"
concerning sonme members of the Board and regretted some of the comments
he had made at the May 1972 meeting relative to certain Board members. Since
he has gotten to know these members better, he realizes he was wrong and he
has a great deal of respect, not only for them but for all members of the Board
of Trustees and for the responsible manner in which they are carrying out their

       Mr. Clay thanked Mr. Wendelsdorf for his reassuring remarks and
requested Mr. George Griffin and Mr. Eugene Goss to draft a resolution recog-
nizing Mr. Wendelsdorf's contributions to the Board to be presented at the next
meeting. (See TR 2 at the end of the Minutes. )

wlas seconded by Mr. Alverson, and passed without dissent. (See FCR 1 at the
end of the Minutes. )

       P. Acquisition of Property for Jefferson Community College
Approved (FCR 2)

       At Mr. Griffin's request. Mr. Forgy explained that the property recorn-
mended for acquisition for the Jefferson Community College was necessary for
the development of that campus and that of the Louisville Vocational Technical
Institute, and recommended that the Board request the Executive Department of
Finance and Administration to acquire the property described in FCR 2 and
further requested that the cost of acquiring said properties be paid from funds
appropriated by the Commonwealth for the Louisville Vocational Technical

       There being no questions, Mr. Cooper mnoved approval of the reconmmen-
dation as stated in FCR 2. His motion was seconded by Mrs. Blazer, and
passed without dissent. (See FCR. 2 at the end of the Minutes. )



       Q. Authorization Given for Payment of the Replacement Cost of
Roof Damage to the Administration Building (FCR 3)

       Mr. Forgy explained that under the Resolution creating and establishing
the Consolidated Educational Buildings Project of the University of Kentucky all
insurance monies in excess of $10, 000 must be paid to the Trustee of the Bond
Holders. The purpose of the recommendation in FCR 3, therefore, is to request
the Trustee to make payment from the insurance monies received for the re-
placement cost of roof damage to the Administration Building resulting from

       Mr. Alverson moved approval of the recommendation in FCR 3. His

       Mr. Griffin called attention to FCR 4 in the folders of the Board members,
noting that this recommendation had been added to the agenda after the tentative
agenda had been mailed out. It was explained that the formation of a non-profit
corporation for the collection of delinquent Medical Center accounts had been
discussed at length in a joint meeting of the Finance Committee and the Medical
Center Committee, and that the consensus of these two committees was that this
wxas perhaps the best manner to handle such collections at this time.

       After a brief discussion, on motion by Mr. Palmer, seconded by Mrs.
Blazer, and passed, the two-part recommendation in FCR 4 was approved as
presented. (See FCR 4 at the end of the Minutes. )

     Dr. Donald F. Diedrich, associate professor of pharmacology,
is the new academic ombudsman.

     The office is a mechanism for handling issues for which no
established procedure exists or for which such procedures have not
yielded a satisfactory solution. The ombudsman must rely on his
ability to communicate and to convince opposing forces to reach a
consensus. A student who has a grievance against any impersonal
facet of the University can appeal through the ombudsman, and re-
ceive a hearing and investigation of his complaint.

     President Singletary said the University and especially the
students are fortunate that Dr. Diedrich was "willing to accept
this challenging appointment."

     The work of the office has increased each year indicating it
more and more is filling a need.  Dr. Diedrich is the fourth ombuds-
man.  The others were Garrett  Flickinger, who teaches law; John
Scarborough, who teaches history, and John L. Madden, who teaches

     Dr. Diedrich was given ihe Golden Apple Award by the Student
American Medical Association for "outstanding contributions to
teaching." The Class of 1968 commended him for his outstanding
teaching and expressed its appreciation "for your interest and de-
votion in our behalf..."

     He was chairman of the Student Affairs Committee for the
College of Medicine.


     Dr. Stanley Wall, vice-president for the Community College
System, said recently he hopes to have 50 per cent of community
college students enrolled in occupationally-oriented programs.

     Dr. Wall told members of the Interim Study Commission on Edu-
cational Organization that UK plans to continue expending these pro-
grams. Currently about 40 per cent of the 11,400 community college
students are enrolled in occupationally-oriented programs. He said
the colleges are offering academic and technical programs as well as
continouing education for adults.  He said 38 per cent of the students
are in two-year techluioal programs.




     Theoretical research on hydrogen production processes will
begin this month in the College of Engineering.  Dean James E.
Funk and Dr. William L. Conger, associate professor of chemical
engineering, have received a $25,692 grant from the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration for a 10-month study.

     They will be dealing with theory and computer computations
rather than with laboratory hardware. They will develop and im-
plement a procedure for evaluating methods for producing hydrogen
other than by electrolysis. Electrolysis is a method of producing
hydrogen by passing an electric current through water, which
"cracks"water molecules, thereby separating hydrogen from oxygen.

     Many engineers and scientists believe that hydrogen, the
most abundant element in the universe, will become the principal
source of industrial energy within the next 30 to 40 years.


     A number of faculty and staff members will begin leaving next
month for tours abroad to research and lecture under the auspices
of the Fulbright-Hays Fellowship program.

     They include: Dr. Ronald Dillehay, professor of psychology,
who will lecture on behavioral science at the Catholic University
of Lima, Peru; Dr. Robert W. Randall, associate professor of history,
who will lecture on American and Latin American history at the
University of Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina; Dr. Edward T. Ordman,
assistant professor of mathematics, who will conduct research in the
general areas of infinite and large topological mathematical groups
at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.

     Dr. P. K. Kadaba, professor in electrical engineering, who will
conduct research on solid state physics at the University of Ljubl-
jana, Yugoslavia; Dean James Funk of the College of Engineering, who
will spend six' weeks in Guayaquil, Ecuador, with the Escuela Super-
ior Polytecnica del Litoral; Dr. George E. Mitchell Jr., coordinator
of Graduate Studies in the College of Agriculture, who will research
the interaction between calcium and phosphorous status and energy
metabolism in dairy cattle at the Ruakura Center in Hamilton, New

     Vyrle W. Owens, field director of the University Year for Action,
who will do research on comparative education and technological inno-
vation in the Philippines, and James Pettinari, College of Architecture,
who will lecture on architecture and urban planning at the Universidad
Catolica, in Ecuador.

     Dr. Michael Impey, assistant professor in the Department of
Spanish and Italian , will do research in Romania under a grant from
the International Research and Exchanges Board.




     Dr. John Ellis of the agronomy department and Walter Graham
of the Division of Agricultural Regulatory Services, have returned
from the Northeast Agricultural Center in Tha Phra Khon Kaen,
Thailand, providing an opportunity to review the international

     The Thailand Contract is administered through the U.S. Agency
for International Development and the UK Research Foundation. UK
was chosen for the Contract because it is well-known for its College
of Agriculture and because it had successfully completed a similar
project with Indonesia.

     Dr. Howard Beers, director of the Center for Developmental
Change, was instrumental in steering the project to Kentucky, and
Dr. Willis Griffin, director of the Office for International Pro-
grams, took major responsibility in negotiating the Contract, which
now is in its seventh year and is to be extended through June,
1975. Initially administered through CDC, the project was trans-
ferred to the College of Agriculture, under the administration of
Dean Charles Barnhart.

     The major obligation of the University is institution-building:
the development of a sustainable research capability and physical
capacity in agricultural research and certain aspects of extension
work. To meet this obligation, the Contract articulates three major
activities: 1) advice to, and training of, Thai counterparts; 2)
selection and programming of participants for graduate study; and
3) identification and procurement of commodities.

     The University is responsible for selection of participants,
programming and pre-departure training, including instruction in
English, both on-site and in the U.S. To provide breadth of ex-
posure, some participants are sent to universities other than
Kentucky. Of the 46 Thai students currently in the program, 26
are here and 20 are at other universities. Arriving participants
are led in an intensive eight-week English study program by Mrs.
Jean Pival of the English department.

     Throughout the six years of the Contract, it has been co-
ordinated on campus by Dr. S. C. Bohanan with the help of his two
assistants, Mrs. Emily Wright and Mrs. Sue Jeter.

     The UK team currently in Thailand is led by Dr. Russell Bran-
non, and includes Dr. Aly Lasheen, Dr. Eddie Daniel, Dr. Verne
Finkner, Dr. Robert Blevins, Paul Teague, and Donald Slack. They
will be joined in June by Dr. Barry Bobst of the Department of
Agricultural Economics. Charles Alton, graduate assistant with the
Thailand Project, plans to go to Thailand this month. He will join
the Kentucky team while researching his doctoral dissertation in
the field of agricultural economics.

     A recent $73,000 grant from ACTION, the citizens volunteer
service corps, will provide financial assistance to the University
Year for Action program for the coming year.

     The program allows University undergraduates to work outside
the Lexington campus and earn 30 hours of academic credit.

     President Singletary said, "The University Year for Action provided
multiple benefits for the University, our students and the Commonwealth
in its first year, and we look forward to an even better program."

     Sixty students were enrolled in the program last year. Five were
in agriculture, 10 in architecture, 12 in arts and sciences, 12 in
education, eight -in law, 13 in social professions, and one in medicine.

     The students helped serve approximately 50,000 low-income people
in Kentucky. As a consequence, more than 35 agencies and communities
have requested students to work in their respective programs.

     The University UYA office estimated some 300 students would be
needed to fill current requests.

     Student assignments last year included work in Anderson, Bourbon,
Boyle, Casey, Clark, Clay, Clinton, Cumberland, Estill, Floyd, Frank-
lin, Garrard, Harlan, Harrison, Jessamine, Knox, Leslie, Letcher,
Lincoln, Madison, Mercer, Nicholas, Perry, Powell, Pulaski, Rockcastle,
Scott, Wayne, and Woodford counties. In addition, some 20 students
work with agencies in Lexington and 12 were in Louisville.

     In one case--because of the services of a UYA student--the Back-
woods Community Center in eastern Kentucky became eligible for licens-
ing and state and local assistance programs. Enough local workers now
have been trained to enable the center to operate on a full-time basis.

     A UYA student from the College of Architecture designed and super-
visedconstruction of a clothing store for the Redbird Mission in eastern
Kentucky. He recruited local manpower to complete construction.


     The University again will sponsor a six-weeks program in Mexico
this summer. Classes will begin July 1 and end August 10. Intensive
courses in beginning, intermediate, and advanced Spanish and archae-
ology, art, folklore, anthropology, music, economics, geography, history,
Spanish literature, and sociology will be offered. Students are given
six semester hours of transfer credit.

     Included in the program are tours, mixers, dinners, and special
programs depicting the different cultures of Mexico. The total cost
of the program is as low as $435 plus transportation which is to be
arranged by the student with the help of the program director. The
program fee covers room and board, tuition, tours and various social
and cultural events. The Instituto has a modern, attractive campus
with 12 residence halls, air-conditioned library and dining hall, two
swimming pools, tennis courts, and a well-equipped gymnasium.

     Six community college faculty members have been awarded Summer
Teaching Improvement Fellowships in the amount of $1200.

     James Douglas, Somerset Community College, was awarded a fellow-
ship for the purpose of developing an auto-tutorial course for
History 108, U.S.A. History Before 1865. Ruth Craddock, Jefferson
Community College, will develop additional materials for use in the
second year nursing program at the AT Lab at Jefferson. Jane Fus-
senegger, Jefferson, was awarded a fellowship to develop millimeter
single loop concept films for techniques and procedures in the
Medical Laboratory Technician program and to develop overhead
transparencies for use in these programs.

     Marilyn Foulke, Jefferson, will study materials and develop
the possibility of utilizing computer assisted instruction in math
courses at Jefferson Community College. Bob C. Chiang, Hazard Com-
munity College, was awarded a fellowship which will allow for the
revision of Chemistry 105, Chemical Calculations. A fellowship also
was granted to Sherree Zalampas, Jefferson, to develop instructional
materials for use in the Early Childhood Development curriculum.


     The College of Education, under a University contract with
the Universidad de Oriente-Venezuela (UDO) and the U. S. Agency
for International Development, is providing technical consultant
services and participant training programs to the Universidad de
Oriente-Venezuela. This cooperative project is designed to meet
UDO priority needs for upgrading the quality of specific educational
programs including those of the School of Education.

     For the implementation of this international project, which
began in the Spring semester of 1972, seven faculty members have
participated in providing consultant services on site at the UDO
campus in Cumana, Venezuela. They are Drs. Arsenio Espinoza, who
also is coordinator of the project, George Denemark, John Stephen-
son, Harry Barnard, Collins Burnett, Larry Craft, and Mrs. Mary
Ruth Brown. A number of administrators and faculty have discussed
problems of common interests with UDO officials who visited the

     One of the phases of the cooperative project calls for UDO
faculty to participate in degree and internship programs at
Lexington. At present, five UDO faculty members are enrolled in
master's degree programs and one in an internship program.
