     Dear Dr. IcVey:

     I submit financial report for March, 1929.

     As indicated by copy of letter attached., the Treasurer
     of Christian County has paid the *2400.00 warrant and
     $480.00 interest due the Extension Division.    The col-
     lection of this was placed in the hands of Mr. Park but
     the check was sent direct to the University. I have
     placed it to the credit of the Extension Division.



The loss by wind at Campbellsville and the loss by
fire at Quicksand have been adjusted and payments of
$385.00 and 41200.00 have been made and credited to
proper accounts.

The Peabody Fund is now invested in four 4i per cent
U. S. Registered Gold Bonds 1933-38 of $10,000.00 each.
These are now in lock box No. 200 at the Phoenix Nation-
al Bank Building.

Very truly,

D. H. Peak

       by experience that the conditions to which they apply
       have been frequent causes of accidents.

       suggestive, and compliance with them should therefore
       be considered as wholly optional on your part.




President Frank L. McVey
University of Kentucky

My dear President MrcVey:

I have just received your note of the 11th instant
pertaining to the recomnendations of the Aetna Life
Insurance Cornpany relative to certain safety devices
for machirnes in the shops and laboratories of the Col-
lege of Engineering.

My estimate of the cost of Providing these safety de-
vices is $385.00.   We have a difficult time in carrying
on the operations of the College of Engineering with
the money provided for such purpose and it would be im-
possible to take from our current budget this amount of
money.   If money is appropriated for this purpose, I
will be glad to comply with the recommendations of the
inspector of the Aetna Life Insurance Company.

This report might indicate to the casual observer that
we do not give consideration to the question of safety
in our various shops and laboratories but I have been
always much concerned in protecting instructors and
students from serious injury.   As evidence of our watch-
fulness in the installation of safety devices we have
been singularly free from accidents.    The inspectors of
insurance companies frequently indulge in hair-splitting
reasoning and whereas they do much good in the general
work of accident prevention they at times become a nui-
sance in making recommendations for installing safety
devices that are unnecessary.    I will, however, be very
glad to carry out the full detail of the safety report
if money is provided for so doing.

Very truly yours,

F. Paul Anderson

Gentlemen:     Attention:  D. H. Peak, Business Agent

I am in receipt of your letter of January 12th with ref-
erence to suggestions which our Inspector made pertain-
ing to the physical condition of equipment around the
Farm and Experimental Station at Lexington, Ky.

The report of our Safety Engineer indicates that the phys-
ical condition of the equipment in this Experimental Sta-
tion, as far as safety precattions are concerned, is much
below the average manufacturing plant in the State of

The men who use this equipment will be the owners, manag-
gers and superintendents of our future plants in this
state.   It seems to the writer that every effort should
be made by our State Institutions to train and educate
the future heads of business in the great problem of
accident prevention.

nhat will be the future attitude of the young men who
receive their training around unguarded, dangerous equip-
ment in this College when they leave and accept positions
of authority in manufacturing plants.   The National
Safety Council and other public organizations interested
in safety have come to the conclusion that safety begins
at home and in our schools.   For this reason we believe
that every effort possible be made to immediately comply
with the suggestions which our trained engineers have
submitted regarding your physical equipment.

We also believe that every effort should be made to ed-
ucate the students in this Institution along safety lines
and we will be glad to render any assistance possible in
such a movement.

                               Very truly yours,

                                  S. R. Millman

                                  Lexington, Ky.
                                  April 8, 1929

     President Frank L. McVey
     University of Kentucky

     Dear President MicVey:

               In accordance with our conversation, I am
     presenting a brief statement relative to the Henderson
     Corbs case.

               Hr. Combs, an employee on the Robinson forest
     tract, was struck on the leg by a piece of timber.
     Some eight or ten days following, he complained that he
     was disabled.   Mr. Jones, the superintendent, suggested
     that he have Dr. Hoge.make an examination.   After mak-
     ing the examination, Dr. Hoge reported sores rather than
     injury, for which he gave Mr,. Combs several treatments.
     The case was reported by Mr. Peak to the Aetna Insurance
     Company.   Their adjuster made a trip to Jackson, took
     up the matter with Dr. Hoge and refused compensation as
     he indicated that the injury on the leg was not a dis-
     abling one, but due to "an infection in his blood rather
     than from the contusion."   The matter is thus returned
     t'o the University, Dr. Hoge expecting to receive his
     fee from us.

                The quest ion is whether we may legally pay
     this fee, it having been refused by the insurance com-
     pany which Vre employ to protect us against such claims.
     The total sum involved is $45.   It is my suggestion,
     unless there is some legal reason why we should not,
     that we secure authorization to make the payment.    I
     should not hesitate to draw the requisition at present,
     except for the possible questions of liability and
     legality that may be involved.

                                Very truly yours,

                                     Thomas Cooper
                                     Dean and Director

     The matter was discussed and motion was made, seconded anr
carried that the bill of Dr. Hoge be paid.



    1.1. Lease of Part of Scovell Park.  A communication from
Asher Coal Company was presented to the Board of Trustees, ask-
ing permission to lease a part of Scovell Park for the purpose
of installing a coal yard.  The matter was considered and a
motion made, seconded and carried that the request be declined.

     12. Bill of J. Pelham Johnston for Professional Services.

paring agreements and entering inta other legal matters for
the year 1927-1928 for the University of Kentucky for 12301.05
was presented and on motion duly seconded carried and the bill
was ordered paid.

    13, Refort on Title to Scovell Park. A communication from
Mr. J. Pelham Johnston giving a report on the title to Scovell
Park recently conveyed to the University of Kentucky by the
City of Lexington was presented to the Board and after due
consideration a motion was made, seconded and carried that the
report be ordered filed with the deed to the property.

     14. Dormitory Regulations in New Dormitories.  The question
of dormitory regulations and room rent to be charged in the
new dormitories at the University of Kentucky was presented
by President McVey and the following Resolution was offered,
seconded and carried:  That the President of the University
be authorized to fix rules and regulations governing the let-
ting of rooms in the new dormitories for men now being erected
by the University, and that a rental charge of $6.00 a week
for a room with study be fixed as the rate to be charged for

     15. Gift of Carnegie Corporation for Summer Session. Pres-
ident McVey announced to the Board that a communication had
been received from the Carnegie Corporation, 522 Fifth Avenue,

Improperly arranged, poorly heated
and furnished throughout. Also very
badly managed.

This house under present management
is not decently habitable.   The only
rooms that are reasonably well kent
are the main living room, parlor and
dining room.   The kitchen and cookts
quarters are a terrible conglomeration
of garbage, dirty clothes, etc.  Burned
matches, cigarette atube and a coating
of dust cover the floors of the study
rooms.   The attic dormitory consti-
tutes a dangerous fire hazard and is
greatly overcrowded.   Dormitory linen
very unclean.

This is one house in which the attic
dormitory is spacious, well kept and
clean but dangerous as a fire hazard.
