nINWTES OF MEH BOARD OF TRUSTEES    -       May 30, 1911

     The Board of Trustees of the State University met in annual session in the

Trustees' Room in the Gymnasium on Tuesday, May 30, 1911, at two o'clock P.M.

    Present: Messrs. Carpenter, Cox, Smith, Terrell, Clay, Davies, Stoll,

              Wathen, Edelen, Nichols, Patterson, Regenstein, and President


    Absent:   Gov. Wilson, Messrs. Wialker, Atkinson, Turner.

    In the absence of the Governor, Lieut. Gov. Cox was requested to act as Chairman.

     The Secretary then read the minutes of the last meeting of the Board, with the

exception of the option on the Calvert property, the report of the Acting President,

the letter from the Commandant in regard to a target range, the report of the Presi-

dent Emeritus on the Posse Gymnasium, and the report of the committee on salaries,

the reading of all of which was dispensed writh, on motion duly made and carried.

      On motion made, seconded and carried, the minutes were approved as read.

      The minutes of the meetings of the Executive Committee were read by the Secretary.

      Mr. Regenstein moved that the minutes of. the Executive Committee be approved,

which motion was duly seconded.

     After discussion, Mr. Smith proposed as a substitute motion that an appropriate

committee be appointed to which the minutes should be referred.

     Said motion being duly seconded, on roll-call the vote stood as follows:

     Ayes: Messrs. Smith and Patterson.

     Noes: Messrs. Carpenter, Cox, Terrell, Clay, Davies, Stoll, WIathen,

            Nichols, Barker, Regenstein.

    Motion was declared to be defeated.



     An amendment was offered by aMr. Clay to Mr. Regenstein's motion, so that the

motion read as follows:-

     Resolved that the minutes of the Executive Committee be approved, with the

proviso that anyone who objects to any particular part of the minutes shall have the

right, upon demand, to call for a separate vote on that part.

     Said amendment, having been seconded and accepted by Mr. Regenstein, was unani-

mously carried.

     On request of Mr. Smith, the resolutions of the Committee in regard to official

statements and letters were taken up, and 11Mr. Stoll explained the necessity for such

resolutions and their meaning and intent. On motion these resolutions were approved.

     President Emeritus Patterson asked for a reading of the paragraph on the organi-

zation of the University which delegated the supervision of instructional work to the

Vice-President. He strongly objected to this paragraph, until IM'r. Clay said that the

minutes were wrong and the passage ought to read:

     "The Vice-President shall, jointly with and under the direction of the President,

have supervision of the instructional work of the University and act for the Presi-

dent in his absence."

     Motion made, seconded and unanimously carried that this insertaion should be

made in the minutes.

     President Emeritus Patterson asked that the resolution in regard to the Academy

should be read, which was done and he then spoke at length in opposition to the pro-

posed change. After a prolonged discussion, a vote was called for on this resolution,

and on roll-call the vote stood:

may 30, 1911



     Ayes: Messrs. Carpenter, Cox, Terrell, Davies, Wathen, Stoll, Eddelen,

                    Nichols, Barker, Regenstein.

     Noes: Messrs. Smith and Patterson.

     Mr. Clay did not vote.

     Mr. Regenstein asked for a vote on his original motion that the minutes of the

Executive Conmittee be approved. On vote, this motion was unanimously carried.

     The President of the University then read his annual report, which is as fol-


                                         Lexington, EBy., May 23, 1911.

To the Board of Trustees,

         State University.


          I have the honor to submit to you this my first report as President of the

State University of Kentucky.

          I entered upon the duties of my office in January 1911 and as this was

just in-mid term of the present school year, I found the institution fully organized

and the education of the student body in full progress under the able supervision

and direction of Vice-President White.

          Under the circumstances it was not deemed wise or desirable that any

material change should be made in the organization of the institution to take effect

within the present term, and I, therefore, believed it best to occupy the position

of an observer, rather than an active director, in order that I might thoroughly

acquaint myself with the practical working of the institution.   I wuld not have

you believe, however, that I have failed in any instance to give the University the

benefit of my best judgment whenever, in my opinion, the exigency of the occasion

may 30, 1911



required it.   The impression that I wish to convey is that 1 deemed it both con-

servative and vwise to leave what appeared to be "Hell enough" alone and to prefer

to be thought slow, rather than rash or hasty.

          The five months I have been in office have been exceedingly pleasant to me

personally, receiving only the kindest courtesy from the actual teaching force of

the institution, and I hope that I have been of some substantial use in the manage-

ment and control of the University.

           tt has been my sincere purpose to win the confidence and affection of the

student body and to inspire them with the conviction that they can always rely upon

receiving absolute justice and fairness at the hands of the faculty, and that the

success of the institution depends more upon their conduct and diligence than upon

any other constituent element. In this effort I believe I have been successful to

a marked degree, but in order that I may not delude myself and you, I invite your

independent investigation when you attend the Commencement exercises.

          in regard to the number of students enrolled during the term of 1910-11,

it gives me pleasure to report an increase of about one hundred over the number of the

preceding year; this, while not phenomenal, shows a sound growth, and I believe that

each succeeding year will show a larger increase until our institution takes its

proper rank, so far as numbers are concerned, with the great State Universities of

the country.

          In regard to the moral character and conduct of the students now on the

campus, I cannot speak too highly.   During the year last past there has been not

one act of wantonness, insubordination or outrage committed by the student body. If

there has been one act of hazing or other mistreatment of a student by his fellows,

I have not heard of it. I never in my life met a higher order of young ladies or

gentlemen than our students and a most careful examination on my own part, and a

diligent inquiry from the various professors convinces me that the attendance on class

was never better, nor the quality of the scholarship of a higher grade than that of

the present student body.


                MfNUTES OF UEE BOARD OF TRUSTEES     -     May 30, 1911

         While seeking to educate the minds of the youth committed to our care,

we have not been unmindful of their need of moral training and everything Which under

the circumstances could be done, has been done to elevate the moral tone of the

student body.   In this connection it is pertinent to inform you that the Young Iden's

Christian Association is anxious to place a resident Secretary on the University

grounds.   I have said to the representatives of the organization that I would advocate

this, provided the right man could be secured; that this Secretary should be able to

assist in building up and promoting clean, wholesome outdoor athletics as well as to

lead in devotional exercises, and that if they could furnish us a man of this charac-

ter, I believed great good would flow from his labor emong the students. The Associ-

ation has many such men and its representatives will come before you with a detailed

statement of the proposed plan.

          I am also happy to be able to report that the active professoria1 corps is

both able and enthusiastic. It gives me great hope for the future to recognize that

this spirit exists.   No real teaching can be done by one Who does not love his work;

who is not enthusiastic in the occupation of inspiring youth with a thirst for know-

ledge; xd all things may be hoped from the work of him who is inspired with this most

laudable ambition.   It has been my utmost endeavor to impress upon the whole teaching

force that in order to build up a great and useful institution, it is necessary that

all bickerings and jealousy dhould be laid aside and an enthusiastic aud harmonious

unity of action promoted and built up.   I believe that the outlook from this point

of view is most cheering.

          Acting under a resolution of this Board, the Executive Comnittee organized

the University into several Colleges with a Dean at the head of each; the several

Deans constitute what is called a Council, being the advisers of the President with

power to make recomnendations to the faculty as may seem good to theu, the faculty

having the power of adopting or rejecting these suggestions as they may see proper.

The following is the plan of organization:-


               MINUTES OF EIE BOARD OF TRUSEES    -    May 30, 1911

        2. School of Metallurgical Engineering.
              (a). Metallurgy.
              (b). Ore Dressing.



         3. School of Extension.


         (a) College of Law.

         Additional General Departments of the University shall be as follows:-

              Department of Physical Education for Mlen.
              Department of Physical Education for Wqomen.
              Department of Military Science.

           It is believed that the foregoing organization will very substantially

 promote the welfare of the institution.  Each College is provided with a respon-

 sible head charged with the high duty of seeing that his department is managed in

 the most efficient manner.  I believe the scheme will promote the unity of the

 University as well as efficiency in the work of the teachers.   The Council can be

 of great service both to the President and the faculty by suggesting from time to

 time needed changes and improvements, and also in carrying into successful operation

 such of their suggestions as may be adopted.

          The Council of Deans have recommended to the Executive Committee the ab-

 sorption of the Academy into the School of Education to be there maintained as a

 Model School. The plan is as followe4s:

          "Until the Secondary School System of the State is developed, a Pre-

paratory School, comprising not more than the last three years of a four year High

School, is maintained under the supervision of the School of Education as a Model

School to prepare students to enter the various Colleges of the University."

          The recommendation is but the enforcement of the fbllowing provision of

the Kentucky Statutes concerning the Academy:

          "That from and after two years from this date (1908) all sub-

freshman work shall begin to be eliminated as a part of the University curriculum,

and such elimination shall progress as rapidly as the educational conditions in

Kentucky will justify: Provided, however, special courses may be given in any of

the Departments of the University, except that no sub-freshman normal instruction

14ay 30, 1911


MfMMlES OF TEE 2.AKD OF TRUSTEES      -    May 30, 1911

shall be given after September 1, 1908, in any department of the University, or

Academy connected therewithl

          (Ky. Statutes Sub-Section 3, Section 4636 B).

          The Executive Committee will, I believe, recommend to you the adoption of

the proposed plan and assuming they will do so, I most heartily concur in the recormmenda-

tion.   The Academy as now maintained costs i5500. annually.  Under the proposed plan

the preparatory students can be taught by the regular professors of the University at

a net saving of several thousand dollars per annun.

          To do this is only to apply the ordinary laws of business efficiency and

economy now in vogue in the administration of the affairs of the great corporate in-

terests of the commercial world. It will secure to the State better teaching at a lower

cost; certainly an end most devoutly to be desired.

          I regret to report that the financial condition of the University is not

entirely satisfactory.   're owe now in round numbers Sixty-six Thousand Dollars


          This debt was created as follows:-

          The Two Hundred Thousand Dollars, ($200,000) appropriated by the State in

1908 for the erection of buildings had to be spent two years before the proceeds were

received from the State Treasurer, thus forcing the University to borrow money with

which to erect the buildings.   $200,000. at 515% interest for two years amounts to

$P22,000. Inasmuch as the building funds of the various buildings erected consumed the

whole of the appropriation, there was nothing left for the equipment of the buildings

and this was made out of the general funds at an expense of about 4$15,000.

          The real estate purchases made within the last two years amounts to Eleven

Thousand, Two Hundred Dollars ($11,200).

          The name of the Kentucky State University was changed by agreement of the

Transylvania University at an expense of 45,000., which was paid to Transylvania

University for the use of the name.



          Add to the above outstanding old accounts of nearly Three Thousand

($3,000.) Dollars and the current liabilities in excess of the income up to July 1,

1911, amounts to over Ten Thousand, Seven Hundred and Fifty (.l0,750) Dollars, and

we have a full explanation of how the deficiency, which amounts to approximate8y

$66,000., was created. The above tabulation approximately outlines the items which

make the deficiency and are approximately correct.

          It will thus be seen that the foregoing indebtedness was made by the

Trustees in order to carry forward the work of the University. I believe it can be

truthfully said that under the circumstances the Trustees did what was for the best

interests of the State, although this large indebtedness was thereby created.  In the

meantime, our credit is good in the bank and we will have no trouble in renewing our

outstanding notes and in July we will receive nearly Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000)

from the several resources of the University.   It is not believed that the Univer-

sity will have any trouble in carrying this debt, or that the next Legislature will

hesitate to appropriate sufficient funds to pay it off.

          It seems to me that in the interest of economy the office of Monitress

should be abolished. This position has been filled long, faithfully and honorably by the

present incumbent, Mrs. Lucy Blackburn; but she is now more than seventy-five years

of age and for this reason alone she is not equal to the efficient discharge of the

duties of the office.   Besides, we now have a most competent Dean of Women and I see

no reason why her constant supervision is not sufficient to make the services of a

Monitress unnecessary.

          I feel deeply impressed with the duty of calling your attention to what,

in my opinion, is an unlawful diversion of the funds of the State in granting to President

Emeritus Patterson a pension of Three Thousand ($3000.) Dollars per annum. For the

original error in granting this pension, I am perhaps more largely responsible than

any other member of the Board of Trustees, and I desire to acknowledge that respon-

sibility to the full, but having looked into the question carefully, I think there is no



doubt whatever that we erred in granting the pension because we were without

authority of law so to do.

     All of which I most respectfully submit to your judgment and discretion.

     In conclusion I desire to be considered exceedingly optimistic concerning the

future of our institution.   The educational outlook was never so bright in Kentucicy

as now; the new school law is commencing to revolutionize the Common School System of

the Commonwealth; new high schools are being organized in many counties where none

have ever before existed; the two great normal schools are doing magnificent work

in supplying the State with competent teachers, and from all this the University

will derive great benefit both in the number of students seeking higher education and

in the qualification of these students when they enter the University.

     But the University will grow on its own merit.   By applying to its finances the

ordinary rules of business efficiency and economy, in order that the State may re-

ceive a dollar's worth of service for each dollar expended; by dsaling with the

teaching force fairly and justly and in return demanding from them a full measure

of consecrated work in teaching the youth committed to their charge, and in inspiring

them with high moral and civic ideals; by inspiring the students with a strong but

wholesome University spirit as well as a divine thirst for knowledge; by making the

Agricultural College to grow and expand until its usefulness to the farmers will be

both recognized and appreciated by them; by building up and expanding each and every de-

partment to its full measure of usefulness, we will deserve and receive that public

recognition and appreciation to which our efforts and merits entitle us. But believe

me, this cannot be accomplished by brilliant rhetoric or general platitudes. Vie will

be judged by what we do, not by what we say.   In order to obtain and hold public

confidence and esteem, we must deserve it. In the philosophic words of Abraham

Lincoln - "Wl7e may deceive some of the people all the time; we may deceive all of the

people some of the time, but we cannot deceive all of the people all of the time."

          With great respect, I am

                                    Most sincerely yours,

                                                 H. S. Barker,
