Division funds which the University had had on deposit.   The

I.

ulating over a period, of about eighteen months aggregating
418,215 from Louis des Cognets and Company for miscellaneous re-

cussion a motion was made and duly seconded and carried that the
bills be ordered paid if found correct.   Payments are to be
made in partial amounts during the year.

     8. Insurance on New Buildings.   The question of insurance

quired to make such payment.

place that many students, the University takes other students, and
this tuition under contract is to be paid to the City Board of
Education.   The students' fees aggregate $1,410 for this purposes
and on motion, duly made and seconded, the Business Agent was
authorized to makc payment of that amount to the City Board of
Education.

    13. Audit of University Accounts.   A cormmunication was
read from Peat, Marwick, Mitchell and Company, auditors who have
been making ani outside audit of University accounts, indica.ting
that it will be necessary to increasc the charge for auditing to
$900 due to the fact that the University has expanded considerab-
bly in financial affairs since they first began to make the au-
dit.   The matter was discussed and the President asked to say
that income was going down and mirany requests were being made to
do this work.

     14. Bill for Diplomas. A bill for V716 for lithographing
diplomas by the Courier Journal Publishing Company at Louisville

izing the payment of this bill, it appearing that the bill was
in accordance with the contract for such work.   President McVey,
however, made the statereent that the diplomas could be purchased
from diploma houses in Chicago for half that amount, and a motion
was made, seconded, and carried that in the future the Univexsity
purchase diplomas elsewhere, if they can be had at a cheaper rate,
provided it is possible under the law to do so.

     15. Report on Sub-Experiment Stations.   Mr. Louis Hillen-
meyer was recently appointed by the Board of Trustees to make an
inspection of the sub-experiment stations owned by the University
at Quicksand aid at Princeton.   His report was presented and on
motion duly seconded, was ordered entered in the minutes.    The
report was as follows:




                                      Lexington, Kentucky
                                      October 14, 1931


   Judge R. C. Stoll, Chairmanl
   Executive Committee, U. of K.
   Lexington, Kentucky

   Dear Judge:

   I believe it vw.s at the June meeting of the Board that I
   was one of a Committee which was appointed to make an in-
   spection trip to the Sub-stations at Quicksand and Prince-
   ton.   I am pleased to make a brief report as follows:

                           Quicksand.

   The trip to Quicksand was made at the time when the annual
   "Harvest Festival" was held in September.    This was may
   second trip there and while the first was made two or three




 






9.



years ago I was agreeably surprised with the progress which
had been rmade during this period.  If the products dis-
played, interest shown and general improve.ment in those
who attended the Festival is basis for a conclusion then
the -wiork done has been quite effective.  The general to-
pography, miileans of transportation, and inherent traditions
of that section are such that it is likely going to take
years for the work of the Station to reach its fullest
fruition.   However, so much has been done in the limited
time that the Station has been in operation I feel that
its usefulness is firrly establishod.

I found the property and equipment being well cared for
and apparently used in a practical wtay which should in-
spire confidence and be an example to those who live in
that section.

It seemed to me that there exists a foeling among our
friends and neicglbors that the roads, bridges and a use
of t he property for trespassing is more public than pri-
vate.   I want to suggest that we be cautious in extending
privileges of this character.

To Mr. E. 0. Robinson who so generously gave the land to
the University a further expression of appreciation from
our Board for continuous financial and personal support
would, in .m;y humble judgme-nt, be both appropriate and de-
serving..

I found Mr. Roger Jones, tho has charge of t-he Station there,
familiar with what was being done and with a keen interest
in its progress.   i word of commendation for the manner in
which he has worked out the local problems and apparently
carried on the various experiments is expressed.


                        Princeton.
The Sub-station at Princeton and the work it is carrying on
is in many ways quite different from that at quicksand. At
Quicksand the problem seems to be one of reforestation and
the economic utilization of the rather meager cultivable
land to sustain the population.   At Princeton the possibil-
ities of increased production for local and distant markets
is b ein, given much anor e consideration.

There I found many plots and fields with various experiments
of fertility, drainage, seed and culture being carried on.
Grain, fruit, grasses, tobacco and live stock are all being
given consideration.   We were shown and told of much of the
work and from observation believe this station is going to
be of inestimable value to the State.   Increased returns

   from larger and diversified crops from the section is in-
   evitable just as soon as th.e farmers put these more pro-
   gressive methods into practice.   I believe this Station
   is just beginning a. great w!ork:;. More demand will likely
   be tmade for appropriations and they can hardly be denied.

   ;.ost of the buildings and equipment is new, being well
   taken care of and the whole lay-out is most pleasing.

   Mr. S. J. Lowry under whose jurisdiction the work is lo-
   cally being carried on is alert, progressive, and has
   things well under his  control.   He is to be complimented
   on the excellent namner in -which he apparently is handling
   the work.

   Very truly yours,
