    4. President ' s Quarterly Report.

    The following report was made by President McVey;


                      May 29, 1934

          In making a report for the present quarter of the yen
     I am bringing to your attention first the deaths that have
     occurred in the staff during the year.   Seven persons have
     died who were directly connected with the University staff,



They are: Professor James B. Holloway, who died in August, 1933;
John B. Dicker, who died in October, 1933; W. A. Newnan, who died
in November, 1933; Reid P. Meacham, who died in February, 1934;
L. D. Moore, who died in March, 1934; F. Paul Anderson, who died
in April, 1934; and Lyman Chalkley, who died in April, 1934.   In
addition to these deaths, there were those of two housemothers
and two students.   It is the purpose to hold a memorial service
for there persons on Thursday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock in Memorial
Hall.   It is hoped the members of the Board can be present.

     Those who come under the change of occupation rules of the
Board of Trustees this year are Professor J. Morton Davis, who
began his-uservice in the Department of Mathematics in 1891; Pro-
fessor J. T. C. Noe, Professor of Educations who began his service
in 1906; Professor F. E. Tuttle of the Department of Chemistry, and
Professor A. C. Zembrod, of the Department of Romance Languages,
who began their services the same year, 1906.   I may say in con-
nection with these deaths and changes in occupation provisions no
recommendations are made to fill their places.   The staffs of the
various colleges will continue as they have in the past year with-
out additional appointments.   This means there will be a saving
in salaries of approximately $20,000.

     When it comes to the matter of the budget, I find myself in
the same uncertainty as in April,   The usual provisions are that
the budget shall be presented at the April meeting of the Board of
Trustees and the Board then shall formulate A budget that may be
used as a basis of expenditure for the coming year.   This year you
know the situation at Frankfort and the uncertainty that exists
makes it imp.ssible to formulate a budget for next year.   I am
-therefore recommending that the Board of Trustees authorize the
Executive Committee to pass upon a budget formulated upon the ex-
penditures of last year, with such modifications as may be necessary.
The Courier-Journal indicated that the appropriations recommended by
the Interim Committee aggregated $946,000.   The amount which was
asked for by the University was $1,015,500.   This would seem to
indicate that the request for back salaries had not been included
in the budget.   We have not had an opportunity to find out def-
initely, but the amount of back salaries $79, 000, added to $946,000,
recommended, gives $1,015,500, the amount asked,    Therefoxe, it
would appear that the Interim Committee left out of the budget the
amount for back salaries.   Whether anything can be done about the
matter, I do not know.   Certainly nothing can be paid out of the
revenue for the coming year.   You hear rumors that something will
be done, and we hear rumors that we shall continue as in the past
with the reductions made by the legislature.    All we can do is to
wait until we know more about the possible income for next year.
If no appropriation is made the University will receive about
$250,000, as compared with $683,000 received this year.    I hope,
however, that the legislature will not leave the matter in that

     Turning to the question of enrollment; during the year the en-
rollment has been slightly below what it was last year, about 50


fewer this year.   The applications for help, for remission of
fees and for assistance in the way of jobs and scholarships, have
been greater than I have ever known.   The basis on which help
has been given this year has been thru the C. W. A. and the
F.E. R. A.   The C. 17. A. made it possible to provide jobs here on
the cam.lpus. These jobs were paid for out of federal funds. We
had 255 students on that list.   They received in the aggregate
from. $2,500 to $3,000 a month depending on weather and working
conditions.   Congressman Gregory is recommending that loans shall
be made to students to the extent of $300.    The students are to
be recuired to pay this back over a period of five years, begin-
ning a year after graduation.   Personally, I do not approve of
this plan.   Paying for work actually done is a much more satis-
factory plan.   I have assurances from the United States Office
of Education and also from Mr. Hopkins the same plan of work will
be continued this coming year that has been in effect this past
year.   There is very great need for money among students.    We
could use loans and scholarships with great effectiveness and
give a good deal of help to the students.    I have wondered if
an arpeal could be made to wealthy men of the community to set
up a scholarship fund,   The number of jobs available in town
and on the campus is limited, and consequently a good many stu-
dents will have to forego their education on account of inabili-
ty to get funds.

     I turn to another phase of the situation in our relation to
the state.   As you know, the regular session of the legislature
repealed the inheritance tax law as far as its present distribu-
tion is concerned, and also repealed the mill tax appropriation
to the University, so that the University is on a special appro-
priation basis, and does not receive any regular sum of money
and therefore faces a biennial legislature.    There is some ad-
vantage in case the receits have declined and it is impossible
to foresee what they will be, as was the case in 1931-32, and
also this year.   The State has set up a new accounting and
budget system under a finance officer who will have the power
to review budgets and direct expenditures.    One of the diffi-
culties that will arise is a question of interpretation and the
right of this Board to spend money as it sees fit.    And there
may be a difference of opinion between the Board of Trustees and
the finance officer.    The t endency of finance officers is to
meet the situation and cooperate over a period of years, but the
difficulties usually come in the first two years.

     I now turn to comment on the relationship of the Universi-
ty with the federal government in connection with the Agricultur-
al Adjustment Act,   The Agricultural Extension Division of the
University of Kentucky has practically carried through the work
of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration in this State and
has made surveys, made contracts and distributed the funds. On-
ly thru the county agents and extension workers could this have
been done and to them great credit is due, and to the College of
Agriculture, especially to Dean Cooper.



        Its success rests upon !its knowledge of the legislation
   and set-up in Washington and what is wanted in Tashington.

        pith the needs of the University for purposes of instruction
   are needs associated with repairs, maintenance of roads and walks
   and care of property.   Roads are going down very badly,   The
   same is true of w alks, and buildings are in need of repairs.
   This has been unavoidable in the last two years, but a continu-
   ance of a policy of this kind should not go on.   I hope there
   will be some provision that will give us money to meet some of
   these needs and keep the property up to a fair degree of effec-

        In concluding, I may say it has been a very anxious year,
   but I think in many ways a successful one.   There has been
   greater seriousness on the part of students and loyalty on the
   part of the staff.   The last Pew months have been anxious ones
   and the morale of the staff has fallen, and will fall more if
   something is not done.   My. hope for the next five or six years
   is to maintain what we now have.   This may not seem very am-
   bitious, but if we can hold the plant, the student body and the
   staff to the place where it now is, we shall have done the best
   we cam under the circumstances.

     5. Election of Executive Committee and Officers of the Board.

     This being the regular meeting for election of the Executive
Committee and officers of the Board of Trustees, on motion, duly
seconded, the following were put in nomination for members of the
Executive Committee: R. C. Stoll, R. G. Gordon, J. B. Andrews,
James Park, and Miller Holland.   The election was by unanimous

     Mr. Holland suggested that it is difficult for him to make
trips to Lexington, owing to the distance of his home, Owensboro,
but he was further urged to accept the appointment on account of
the desi:7ability of having the western part of the state represent-
ed on the Committee.

     On motion, duly seconded, the following were put in nomination
for officers of the Board of Trustees: R. C. Stoll, Chairman of the
Executive Committee; John Skain, Treasurer of the University of
Kentucky; and D. H. Peak, Secretary of the Board of Trustees. The
salary of the Treasurer was fixed at $100.00 and that of the Secre-
tary of the Board of Trustees, at $140.00, no change being made
in amounts of salaries from those of the previous year0    The motion
was carried by unanimous vote.



     6. Contract with Campus Book Store.

     Report of the Campus Book Store for the six months ending
December 31, 1934, was published in the minutes of the meeting of
the Executive Committee of May 8, 1934.  This report was filed with
the Secretary of the Board of Trustees by James B. Kelly, Secretary
of Campus Book Store Committee, in connection with the following let-

                                     May 11, 1934
     Mr. D. H. Peak, Secretary
     Board of Trustees
     University of Ientucky

     Dear Mr. Peak:

                    At the meeting of the Campus Book Store
     Committee on May 9, Mr. Morris, the Manager of the Store,
     gave his semi-annual financial report.   Immediately after
     receiving the report, the committee instructed me, as secre-
     tary, to send a copy to the Board of Trustees for their in-
     formation,   I was also instructed to send you a copy of
     the following motioniegarding the renewal of the present
     contract with Mr. Morris:

     r"After some discussion, Dean Jones moved that the Campus
     Book Store Committee recommend to the Board of Trustees
     of the University of Kentucky that they renew the present
     contract with Mr. Morris for a period of three more years,
     and that the secretary be instructed to send a copy of
     this motion to Mr. D. H. Peak, Secretary of the Board of
     Trustees.   The motion was seconded by Professor Haun,
     and Passed by the Committee."

                                   Respect fully submit ted,

                               (Signed)   James B. Kelley, Secretary
                                          Campus Book Store Com-

     On motion, duly seconded, it was ordered that the Campus Book
Store Committee be authorized to renew the contract with Mr, Morris
for a period of three years from the expiration December 31, 1934.
The contrract may be renewed by endorsement thereon in substance as
follows:   "This contract is hereby renewed and extended for a
period of three years from the expiration thereof December 31, 1934,
on the same terms and conditions stated therein."   This extension
agreement shall be signed by the s ame parties signing the original



     7, Budget Action.

     President McVey suggested that, owing to the fact that an ap-
propriation bill has not yet been passed by the Legislature, action
on the budget should probably be delegated to the Executive Con-

     The following resolution was passed:

          The Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees is
     hereby authorized and empowered to adopt a budget, the ex-
     penditures to be based on the estimated receipts and the
     employment of the staff named therein and the salary of
     each as suggested therein to be conditioned on the abili'
     Gy of the University to obtain the funds estimated in the
     budget as receipts, and such employment and salaries to
     be subject to changes, corrections and cancellation of
     employment as the financial condition of the University
     of Kentucky may make such action necessary.

     In this connection there was discussion of legislation and ap-
propriations to the University.   Mr. Gordon suggested that the
Budget Committee of the Legislature be requested to make appropria-
tion for unpaid 1932 salaries, stating that staff members had shown
up well in accepting the situation, that recognition of this is due
them, and that such an appropriation will increase the morale of
the University staff,   The members of the Board concurred in his

     8. Commencement Announced,

     President MCVey announced the commencement programs, memorial
exercises and the unveiling of the Patterson Statue,   The menbexs
of the Board were requested to attend these exercises, if possible,

     University of Kentucky

     My dear President McVey:

     I enclose a letter from Professor Oswald Veblen of
     Princeton in which he asks whether, if the Emergency
     Committee in New York were able to place another of
     the displaced German Scholars with us for two years,
     it would be possible for us to make a permanent place
     for him after the Comnmittee's support was withdrawn.



Dr. Brauer has been of great help and inspiration to
us this year, and his presence has increased our repu-
tation among mathematicians.   Another such man would
materially strengthen us in our appeal for recognition
by the Association of American Universities.

I recommend therefore that the agreement suggested by
Dr. Veblen be undertaken by us.    I think that we are
perfectly safe in doing so, since it is to be understood
that we keep the man only "in case he turned out to be a
satisfactory colleague."
                                      If enrollment in-
 creases as we expect, we will need his services, I
 enrollment does not increase, then we can release one of
 our instructors.

                        Sincerely yours,

                                   (Signed) Paul P. Boyd

Dear Dean Boyd:

           I am taking the liberty of sending your letter
 concerning Dr. Brauer on to the Secretary of the Emergency

           Do you think that in case the Emergency Committee
were able to place another man with you for a couple of
years, it might be possible for you to make a permanent
place for him after taie OommitUtee's support was withdrawn
-- I mean in case he +-rned out to be a satisfactory col-
league.   I imagine that this question is a difficult one
to answer, but I think it is one which is bound to arise
whenever a man is placed by the Committee.

                     Yours sincerely,

                                      (Signed)  Oswald Veblen

expedient, the interests of the University to be guarded and pro-
tected in agreement as to current and future employment.

                    T1E PHOENIX HOTEL COMPANY

                                              May 26th, 1934

     Dr. Frank L. 4cVey, President
     The University of Kentucky
     Lexington, icy.

     Dear Doctor McVey:-
                           We have on the front of the hotel,
     two very fine wrought iron light standards with five
     cluster light globes and bulbs each, and I am writing
     you this letter to offer these light standards to the
     University as a gift of the Phoenix Hotel.

                           It has been suggested that an ap-
    propriate place for them might be in front of Mechanical
    Hall and that they might be in the nature of a memorial
    to Dean Anderson,   This may not be practicable and is
    offered as a suggestion only.

                           I have shown these standards to
    Mr. Crutcher and he thinks they will make quite an addi-
    tion to the campus.

                           If you see fit to accept them as a
    token of the appreciation of the Phoenix for the many
    kindnesses shown us by the University and of our esteem
    for those who have so wonderfully guided the destinies
    of the University during these troublous times, we shall
    be most happy.

                         With all good wishes, I am

                             Very sincerely yours,

                                  (Signed) Frank B. Jones



    President MlcVey was directed to write Mr. Jones accepting
the gift of the standards and to express the appreciation of the
Board of Trustees therefor.

     12. Salary of Judge Ohalkley.

     The Business Agent Presented a letter from Brs. Lyman Chalkley
in which she requested oayment of the salary of Judge Ohalkley to
July 1, 1934, and asked about the nrobable Dayment of salary re-
serve ard back salary.   He was directed to write Mrs. Chalkley,
stating that the Board of Trustees has heretofore ordered that sal_
aries of deceased members of the staff continue only to the end of
the month in which the death occurs, and that, therefore, it is
impossible to grant her request, and to state further that. no
funds being available for that -ourpose, no action may be taken as
to salary reserves and back salary.
