                              June 18, 1928


President Frank L. McVey
University of Kentucky

My dear Sir:

     Replying to your letter of recent date requesting
a report upon the activities of the Student Loan Fund,
I beg to report the following facts, as covering the
period of activity from June 1, 1927, to June 1, 1928:

     ITumber of loans                187
       Of a total value of                    11,562.00
     NTumber of collections on
       principle                     321
     Of a total value of                      10,593.57
     Total amount of interest
       collected                               1,477.56
     Notes outstanding June 1, 1927           21,044.11
     Notes outstanding June 1, 1928           23,383.44
     Cash on hand June 1, 1927                   295.19
     Cash on hand June 1, 1928                 1 ,478.c96

     Miscellaneous gifts and profits from the Chautauqua
have increased the fund during the past year by t1,445.74.

     The Student Loan Fund Committee is fully aware of the
fact that the funds available for this activity are wholly
inade-qlate.  The Student Loan Fund should be at the pres-
ent time no less than $100,000.00 and if twice that sum
were available it could be used to good advantage.    At
a recent meeting of the Committee a motion prevailed that
t4e Chairman should request the President to appoint a
large committee, representing all of the varied interests
of the University, to consider ways and means of increas-
ing the Student Loan Fund, and possibly to plan and exe-
cute a campaign for funds.   It is greatly to be hoped
that this committee may be appointed and may function
with the opening of the coming school year.    The Student
Loan Fund Committeesas at present constituted, feels that
its personnel is too limited in numbers and influence to
undertake, alone and unaided, a task so large as the
raising of adequate funds for this activity.

     During the past year no worthy applicant has been
refused aid.   In many cases, however, the aid granted
was much smaller than requested, and, many times, smaller
than, in the judgment of the Committee, was desirable.
The Committee has loaned only such money as was available
in cash on hand during the past year and has at the
present time on its books only a very small number of




 




7.



    notes which appear at this time to be uncollectablea
    The sum total of these notes, it is believed, will not
    exceed the amount by which interest collected will ex-
    ceed expenditures for salaries and coat of operation.
    That is to say, the interest collected will pay all
    running expenses and will exceed notes charged off as
    uncollectable,   Many applicants have been refused dur-
    ing the year on s3ccouint of poor scholarship.

                               Respectfully submitted,

    WSW                  (Signed)  Wm. S. Webb, Chairman
    EH


          Whereupon a motion was made, seconded and carried
authorizing the President to enlarge the committee and to
make a report to the Board at a later time.


     11. Management House for Home Economics.   Motion was
made, seconded and carried authorizing the renewal of a lease
for the Kearns property as a management house for the Home
Economics Department.

     12. Animal House,   Motion was made, seconded and carried
authorizing the erection of a small building for the purpose
of housing animals for experimental work to be carried on
by the Departments of Zoology, Bacteriology, Physiology, Psy-
chology and Hygiene.

                                July 19th, 1928.


Dr. F. L. McVey, President,
University of Kentucky,
Lexington, Ky.

Dear Doctor:-

         In looking over the minutes of the Board
of Trustees of the University for Thursday, June
14th, I notice on the first page under Subsection
1 this language appears:

             "Judge Stoll presented to the
         Committee a deed to certain proper-
         ty on Upper and Limestone Streets
         in front of the University Campus,
         granted to the University by the
         City of Lexington, for the purpose
         of erecting thereon a Training School
         Building for the College of Education."

         One of the purposes for which this land
is to be used is to erect a Training School, but the
University is not limited by the deed, or in any way
to the erection of a Training School on this property.
The gift was an outright gift froz the City of Lexing-
ton and it should not appear in the minites that it
was granted for the purpose of erecting a Trainigg
School, because if in the future the grant should
ever come up for construction, these minutes might be
embarrassing to us, so it seems to me that the min-
utes should be corrected so as to strike out the
words "for a Training School Building for the College
of Education."

         In the resolution sent to the mayor appear
the words "for the erection thereon of a Training
School Building," but I thihk the minutes ih. thatspe8pect
should be corrected.

                        Yours very truly,

                             (Signed) 'Richard C. Stoll
