     Minutes of the regular quarterly meeting of the Board of Trustees,
University of Kentucky, for Tuesday, December 13, 1921.

     The Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky met in regular
quarterly session in the President's office at the University of Kentucky
on Tuesday, December 13, 1921, at 11:30 o'clock, a. m.  The following
members were present:  T. L. Hornsby, Senator H. M. Froman, J. R. Rash,
Robert G. Gordon, Tudgc Richard C. Stoll, Rainey T. Wells, James M. Turner,
Frank McKee, and W. H. Grady.  Prank L. McVey, President of the University,
and Wellington Patrick, Secretary of the Board, were also present.

     In the'absence of the Governor, the meeting was called to order by
Judge Stoll.  The minutes of the last meeting of the Board of Trustees and
minutes of the Executive Committee since the last meeting, of the Board were
approved as published.

     (I) Financial Rport.  The financial report of the Business Agent was
presente& by the President, read, and ordered filed.

     (2) (Biernial  Rert of the President.   The biennial report of the
President was read, and on motion by Senator Froman, seconded by Mr. Gordon,
ordered printed for distribution.  (The report when printed is to be at-
tached to these minutes as a part thereof.)-

     (3) Removal of Feed and Fertilizer Control from Hxperiment Station.
On motion by Senator Froman, seconded by Mr. Hornsby, the following resolu-
tion was unanimously adopted by the Board:

    -     The Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky have
    given consideration to the information given by the President as
    to *the proposal OF an or0tniuctiur to ir.ooate- nnd thoir purr3s-.
    t- introduce legislation to remove from the Experiment Station the
    feed, fertilizer and pure seed control work.   It is the belief of
    the Board of Trustees that the proposal is against the public in-
    terest and that if carried out it would be adverse to the intcr;st
    of the farmers of the State. and would also cripple the work of the
    Experiment Station.  This work has so long been a fundamental
    part of the Experiment Station that is has become an essential
    part of its plan of operation and is connected with many important
    investigations and demonstrations in the field of agriculture.

          By specific legislation the administration of these laws has
     been entrusted to the Experiment Station; the fertilizer law for
     offer thirty-three years, the feed law for sixteen years and the
     pure seed act for five years.  It has thus become an established
     legislative policy of the State and the administration of these



    acts and others assigned to the Station has met with the approval
    of the farrmers of the State and with the general public.  The
    suggested changes would not only be expensive to the State but
    would probably lessen the protection now given the farmer.   Thhe
    Board of Trustees further oalls attention to the fact that there
    wvould be an added financial burden to the State, especially in
    view of the fact that new laboratories would have to be purchased
    and maintained. -'This is especially true since the present lab-
    oratories would have to be continued in the conduct of the work
    of the Experiment Station.  The Board hereby directs the Presi-
    dent and the administrative officers of the College of Agriculture
    and the Experiment Station of the University of Kentuckyy to take
    such action as will prevent the retmoval of this work and thereby
    insure the best interests of the farmer.

    (4) Right of Erninent Domain for the University.  It Was reported to
the Board by the President that the owners of the Negro church on Winslow
Street had offered the property to the University for $s0oo0.   It appear-
ing that the owners of the church propose to ereot a new church on the site,
which would be objectionable to the Univcrsity, Judge Stoll and Mr. Gordon
were requested to prepare for the Legislature a bill giving the University
the right of eminent domain.   On motion, duly made and seconded, the Sec-
retary of the Board was instructed to request the Attorney General to in-
stitute a suit on the part of the State to prevcnt the erection of 'such

     (5) Interview with Budget Commission.   President MoVey reported to
the Boa-rd that on Fr-iday, December 2, he and the members of the Executive
Committe:e, including Senator Ernst, had called on the State Budget Commis-
sion and presented the needs of the University.   He indicated that their
representations had been received with due respect, although the members
of the Budget Commission had not in any way comnmitted themselves on the
program.  In the discussion which follovwed, it appeared to be the sense
of the Board that the ?rovident should arrange for the Survey Commission
to get a hearing before the Budget Commission on the matter.

     (6) Dedication of Ytew Dormitor.   Judge: Stoll suggested to the Board
that it might be approrriate to arrange for suitable dedicatory exercises
on the completion of the newv dormitory.  On motion by Mr. Wells, seconded
by Mr. Turner, such an exercise was authorized with the stipulation that
the Legislature be invited to visit the University on that occasion.

     (7) Insurance on Buildings. Mr. Gordon made a brief report on in-
surance matters which he had been investigating.   He stated that a repre-
sentative of the Hartford Fire Insurance Company would visit the University
on January 2 to make a preliminary survey of the situation, and stated that
after such survey the Board could then consider what further action it would
take with respect to the matter.   (See paragraph 6, IMinutes of Executive
Committee, November 16, 1921.)
