     4. Legislative Situation.

     The legislative situation so far as it may affect the Universi-
ty was discussed at some length, especially Senate bill No. 249, re-
lating to budget procedure.   There was discussion of the cuestion
of a bill levying a sales tax and the benefit that would inure to the
University appropriation in case of adequate tax levies.   President
McVey was authorized to look after the tUniversity's interests and to
ask for such revision of bill No. 249 and other bills that the Uni-
versity's welfare may not be prejudiced    The President stated
that under the reorganization bill the Bureau of Mineral and Topo-
graphic Survey is removed from the University and put under the De-
partment of Mines.   He said that he had promise that the display of
minerals, etc., belonging to that.Bureau will be left with the Uni-

     In this connection it was stated that no report of the audit
and examination of the University of Kentucky by Griffenhagen has
been received.

     5. Fire Inspection - Neville Hall.

     The Superintendent of Buildilgs and Grounds submitted the fol-
lowing communication:

                                       January 30, 1934

     Mr. MA. J. Crutcher
     Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds
     University of Kentucky

     Dear Sir:-

             An inspection of Neville Hall, located on the Uni-
     versity Campus, revealed the fact that this building was
     in strict violation of the Standards of Safety, which are
     a part of the Kentucky Statutes, due to the fact that this



     building has only one exit serving this entire buile.in,
     and the law reauires that two or more exits serve all
     buildings where persons live, work or congregate. This
     is a. three story building with class rooms on the second.
     floor with a seating capacity for about 140 students, an 1C.
     has. five offices or separate rooms on the third floor.

             The first floor of thlis building is used for X-ral
     rooms, and Doctors' and Nursest offices.

             In the basement room directly under the sta.irway
     serving the upper floors, there is an accum-ulation of
     trash and rubbish and this is strictly in violation of
     Section 2, Subsection 6, naragraph (b) of the Standards
     of Safety, and in another Mart of the basement is located
     the paint shop where oils, turpentines and other :Ia~terials
     are stored,

            Due to the life hazard of this building, it is a'-
     solutely imperative that corrections be mza.de at once. A
     fire eseame or other approved tyoe of egress must be erect-
     ed or installed on this build-ing within the next thirty
     days, or it will be necessary for this office to take mqore
     drastic action to have this building placed in a safe con-

            Te trust that you will give this matter your iTm
     .mediate attention and that it will not be necessary for
     this deoartment to take further action in this case.


     (Signed) C. J. Henry
              Chief Fire Department.

     On this communication the Superintendent comments aIs follows:

     "The Paint Shop can be moved to Service Building provided
     space is suitably constructed to house it.    This work can
     be done under d. S. A. oroject No.. Ky-35-87 now held in
     abeyance since January 19, at no cost to the University
     for labor.   Material costs would amount to approximIately
     15700. OO.

     President McVey was authorized to oroceed with the changes
sug.:ested as he mlay find. them necessary and Practicable.



     6, Student Union Building.

     President MoVey was authorized to have presented to the Pub-
lic Works Administration application for a loan for a student
union building, provided such application and the contract that
may follow place no financial obligations on the University of
Ientucky and provided further that no obligation be put on the
University to require students to pledge and to pay any part of
the obligations growing out of application and contract with the
C. Wi A.

     7. Janes K. Patterson Bequest to Patterson Literary Society.

     It was ordered that the correspondence that follows be in-
serted in the Minutes.   No further action was takeh.

                                 January 15, 1934
     ir. C. N. Manning
     President Security Trust Company
     Lexington, Kentucky

     Dear Mr. Manning:

          Following our talk a few days ago I am submitting
     to you a memorandum on the Patterson Literary Society
     Scholarship and other awards.

          I think it is evident to any one reading the will
     that President Patterson meant to establish a scholar-
     ship at the University of Kentucky and that by so doing
     he consciously had it in mind to perpetuate his name.
     He wanted it announced each 26th of March that Mr. So
     and So had won the Patterson medal for the best declama-
     tion, and that again in May it would be announced that
     another boy was awarded the Patterson scholarship, Each
     time something would presumably be said about Jamzes K.
     Patterson and what he did.   I think that you will agree
     that this was in the mind of President Patterson when he
     wrote his will.   Bit the Patterson Literary Society has
     ceased to exist through lack of interest.    And so his
     purpose fails of accomplishment because we do not have
     the particular medium through which he meant to effect
     hi s purpose.  Since it seems to me more essential to
     carry out his purpose than to thwart this through lack
     of the medium specified.   I am making the following



     Pending the time when there will be renewed inter-
est in literary societies we ask permission to award the
Patterson Scholarship and the Patterson birthday prize.
($30) as a single scholarship or as two or more tuition
scholarships, observing the requirements of church mem-
bership as set forth in the will; with reference to the
five year prize of $125, we would open that to competi-
tion of the entire student body instead of to the literary

     In our catalog and other appropriate publications
we would give.full publicity to President Pattersonts

     You and I tried to revive the Patterson Literary
Society without sustained success.

     Since the University is the sole beneficiary under
the will, I understand the Board of Trustees can probably
pass a resolution making it safe for you to adopt the pro-
posed interpretation.   If our plan is approved I suggest
that you, President McVey and I be a committee to award
the scholarships,

     In trying to select students for our campus OWA
projects I have been surprised-to find many boys from
Lexington and adjoining towns who are out of college be-
cause of inability to pay tuition.

     Our vxecutive Committee meets Wednesday and if you
approve our proposal we should like to know if possible
by that time,   In the meantime, President NcVey or I
will be glad to discuss the matter further with you.

                        Very sincerely,

                           (Signed) T. T. Jones
                                     Dean of Men.

                            January 16, 1934

Dr. T. T. Jones
University of Kentucky
Lexington, Kentucky

Dear Dr. Jones:

     In reply to your letter of January 15, I have every
desire to accede to the wishes of yourself and Dr. MicVey
regarding the application of the income directed in the
will of Dr. Jaines K. Patterson to be used for prizes and


     scholarships in connection with the Patterson Literary
     Society, but I think that neither the Executor nor the
     University of Kentucky has the authority under the law
     and under the language of the will to divert this income
     from the specific purpose to which it was directed to
     be applied.   It is true that the University of Kentucky
     is in a sense the residuary devisee, but even when the
     income becomes payable to the University of Kentucky, it
     is directed to be used for a specific purpose, and I
     feel that the consent of the University would not afford
     a legal and moral protection to the Executor to use any
     part of the income otherwise than as directed by the tes-

          For these reasons, I r egretfully find myself unable
     to consent to the suggestions contained in your letter
     of January 15 as to the application of the income which
     was directed to be used under and through the auspices
     of the Patterson Literary Society, which has ceased to

                             Cordially yours,

                                  (Signed) C. N. M1anning

     8. Student Subscription to Law Reviews

     The 3ollege of Law requested that the subscription price of
the Law Review be added to the fees of each student in Law, each
student being given a subscription to the publication, and the
amount thus added and collected be set aside to that publication,
The suggestion was not approved.

     9. Appointment of Members of Board of Trustees.

     On the        day of January, 1334, Governor Ruby Laffoon
announced the appointment of the following members of the Board
of Trustees: Dr. W. W. Wash, Lawrenceburg, to succeed himself;
Joe B. Andrews, Newport, to succeed himself; E. 0. Robinson, Fort
Thomas, to succeed himself; James Park, Lexington, alumni memriber,
selected from the three nominated by the alumni and certified to
the Governor by the Secretary of the Board December 16, 1933, See
Minutes of the Txecutive Committee of January 17, 1934.




     10. Dispusal of Election Ballots, etc.,

     It appearing that the alumni election has been completed
and that detailed reports are shown in appendix to the minutes
of the Board of Trustees of September 19, 1933, and Decem-ber 14,
