     The Committee on this College made the following report-
which being amended was then adopted.
     Your Committee upon the Agricultural and Mechanical College
have the honor to report that the various departments of the
College are in a prosperous condition and the reports of the
various Professors and Instructors speak in high terms of the
scholarship and good conduct of the students. In the opinion of
the Committee the last has been the nost prosperous session in
the history of tne College and notwithstanding the disadvantage
of the want of proper buildings upwards of two hundred students
have regulc.r instruction.
     The Committee would urge that immediate profision be made
for suitable accommodation in class and society rooms. They
deem this to be a very pressing need.
     The valuable suggestion of the Presiding officer in refer-
ence to the admission of Students expecting to defray their ex-
penses by labor calls for special provision.
     We would recommend that a rigid inspection be made frequently
and a direct oversight kept on the various Club Rooms on the Estate.
     We also deem the consentration of the compensated labor impor-
tant /195/ and advise the removal of the Horticultural Department
to the Experimental grounds at Ashland.
     The suggestion in reference to the classes in Reading, Spell-
ing and composition we deem important and advise that such studies
be obligatory upon all the students admitted to the Preparatory
     We would also advise that the Professor of Civil History be
relieved of the Junior and Senior classes in English Literature
and that the said classes be transferred to Professor ShackeIford
if such arrangement can be made.
     We also think an Instructor in Architectual Drawirng and
Drafting should be provided as early as possible also an Instructor
in Instrumental and vocal music.

 sessiona more succes'-ful in its operations than in any former year.
      The report of the President is highly satisfactory.
      President Milligan recommends that as the folloring named
 young men have finished the course in the English department of
 the College in Ky. University they be awarded suitable diplomas-
 Their names are as  follows -

 The moral and Religious Conduct of the Students in this depart-
 ment of the University has been good.
      We unite with the President in recommending that another
 ?rofessor be appointed for this college provided the funds of
 the University will justify also that a library of select works
 in Biblical and Religious Literature be secured for this school
 if possible.
/197/ We recommend as the President suggests that students of the
Bible College who wish to take a full course in the College of
Arts be allowed to select Hebrew in line of the calculus or the
Seniors Greek and Latin or any two of the MVfodern Languages.
