Dean Cooper read to the Faculty the following resolution concerning
Professor JOb B. Turner, which had been prepared by the Experiment Station

In the passing of J. D. Turner on January 1, 1946 the Experiment
Station lost a highly capable executive, and the University a loyal
alumnus and friend who took a deep interest in everything that
affected the welfare of the Institution.

In action he was guided only by what he believed to be right,
regardless of any consideration of personal advantages or disadvana
tages. This made his administration dfi the Feed and Fertilizer
Control highly effective for the good of the farmers of the state.
He had the full respect of all who were affected by his administrative
duties. m

His was naturally a friendly disposition, and his passing is
a greet loss to a host of friends not only among his associates at
the University but among the many people of the state and nation
who knew him.

How have been privileged to serve the University so long as
he did, a period of fortyasix years.

His family life was guided by the highest ideals. The noble
record he has left will be a sacred memory to his family through
the years to come.

The Experiment Station staff extends to his family its deepest

The Faculty voted to endorse the resolution and to send a note to Professor
Turner's family

Professor Walton, of the College of Engineering, read to the Faculty the
following resolution concerning Professor C. C. Jett:

It is with deep regret that we are called upon to report the
sudden passing on January 21, 1946 of our esteemed colleague and
friend, Carter C. Jett. For more than twenty years Professor Jett
was a member of the faculty in the College of Engineering where he
taught machine design.

He was born at Jett, Franklin County, Kentucky in 1877; rev
ceived his preliminary training at Excelsior Institute at Jett;
and was graduated from the College of Engineering, University of
Kentucky in 1899. After a brief connection with the Cincinnati
Tool Cempany, he taught successively at the University of Minne~
sets and Bradley Polytechnic Institute. For a number of years
he was a machine designer with various steel companies in Youngs»
town, Ohio, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania and Cleveland, Ohio.

At former Dean Anderson”s earnest solicitation, he left in-
dustry in 1925 and joined the engineering staff of the University.
Since that time until his death he applied his knowledge and
teaching skill in the Engineering College of the University where
his kind and genial disposition has left a deep inpression upon
all students with whom he came in contact. In addition to his
regular teaching duties he took an active part in directing the
local student section of the A.S.M.E. He was also a member of
the following organizations, in most of which he took an active
part and contributed generously of his time and effort: Sigma
Alpha Epsilon, the Society of the Sigma Xi, Society for the
Promotion of Engineering Education, the Odd Fellows and Masonic

We of the Faculty of the College of Engineering feel his loss
keenly and are aware of the great loss to his sisters and other
members of his family. To them we extend our deepest hearfelt



Now, therefore, we, the Board of Trustees of the University of
Kentucky, the Faculty of the University, and the Faculty and Staff
of the College of Engineering do resolve that these expressions of
sorrow and appreciation be duly recorded and a copy hereof be sent
to the bereaved family.

The Faculty voted approval of the resolution and asked hat a c0py be sent to
the family of Professor Jett.

A letter from Dr. Scherago, Head of the Department of Bacteriology,
was read to the Faculty. This letter requested that a committee be appointed
to consider a matter of duplication between his department's course, Bacteri-
ology 56b, and Animal Industry 131, Dairy Bacteriology. President Donovan
appointed a committee, consisting of Dean Cooper, Deen Boyd, Dr. H. B.
Morrison, and Dr. Scherago, to study the matter and bring a recommedation
to the University Faculty.

On recommendation of the College of Arts and Sciences, the following new
courses and changes in courses were approved:

tals and asylums, educational institutions, libraries, humanitarian
effort, religion, superstition, secret societies, sanitation and dis»
infection, epidemics, medical care, reeds and canals, and travel.
Prerequisites: Hist. 4a and 4b, or 8a and 8b.

Social Work lfil. Public Assistance. Change from 3 quarter hours to
g quarter hours. This is a key course in our program to prepare
graduates for jobs in public welfare in Kentucky and accordingly
needs additional content covering specific Kentucky practice in this

Reguest from Political Science Department

The Political Science Department was granted permission a few years ago
to reduce the actual class meetings of five quarter hour advanced courses
from five to four a week. This permission was later renewed; but has

Experience with the practice has been Very satisfactory. It makes it
possible to assign more outside readings and to place greater emphasis
on the use of the library and on independent work. It also gives the
instructor more time for individual conferences with students. This
practice is not followed in every advanced course, but only where the
nature of the course makes it desirable. It is a policy that has been
practiced for years at the University of Chicago and other institutions-

At the request of the College of Agriculture and Home Economics, the
following new courses and changes in courses were approved:

Dean Evens presented the following resolution to the Faculty, which was
unanimously endorsed:



Mr. President:

There are some things that seem to be wath while saying for 6‘;
the good of the University at this juncture, and I propose to state

them briefly, although many of them are known as well or better to
others of my colleagues here than they are to me.






Minutes of the University Faculty February 11, 1946 - cont.
Attention is called to four different situations:

(1) Problems Growing Out of the [Ea

During the war period the University had to exert itself to
continue to be a going cencern. Many adjustments had to be made
by the faculty personnel left to take care of the teaching leads
in the case where teachers had gone to war. In some cases depart—
ments were left with little more than a token representation, due
to the dispersal of their membership. It was a genuinely difficult
undertaking to meet this situation and carry us through the war as
a going concern. However, the University did meet these problems
and I believe did so creditebly.

(2) The Problems Arising g the Close 3_f_ the gig};


Although the embarrassments of the war were troublesome
from the standpoint of the University, they did not begin to
campare with the problems that arose immediately after peace
was declared and the students began to come back. These matters
center around (a) housing, (b) the employment of teachers, and
(c) the securing of funds.

(a) Housing. The housing problem has probably been the most
difficult of all. During the war period no buildings were cone
structed either for dwellings or for business purposes, but during
this period there was the normal wastage arising from fires, winds
and other casualties, which removed a considerable part of the
housing from the use to which it had formerly been put. Then,
especially in college towns, came the unprecedented demand for
student housing for both single and married students. The generosity
of the Federal Government has caused many thousands of veterans to
think about schooling who had never contemplated such a venture

The University is now faced with the necessity of denying
admission to many thousands of applicants in the near future.
The University feels that it must provide for its own citizens.
It should also provide for the children of its former graduates
who wish to attend. Theonly place, then, where it can really cut
admissions arises in the case of:§udents from other states and
countries. One of the answeres to this problem has been COOpers'
town and the more than 300 buildings which have been set up there
and are being adapted to student use as rapidly as possible.
Even these are scarcely more than a drop in the bucket. The
University did not, however. stand idly by. It had made plans
for this very thing and it knew that this huge demand was coming.
However, neither material nor funds were available and there was
not much that could be done. It is believed that everything has
been done that could reasonably be dnneby any person.

(b) The Employment of Teachers. The University has lost 50
teachers, exclusive of those who were taken into the war service.
Besides supplying the places of these 50, it has been obliged and
Will be obliged to hire many others, perhaps more than 100, and
the problems of selecting these teachers so as to have adequoto
instruction and net more superficial training is a very difficult
one to solve.














Minutes of the University Faculty Februay 11, 1945 w cont.

(c) The Securing 2: Funds. It seems perfectly clear that
the University cannot operate upon the meager allowances hitherto
made and take care of the thousands of veterans who are coming in. %
Adeguate teachers cannot be procured at the salaries paid in the \a
past. They just simply will not come. They go elsewhere. At the
same time that the University is faced with the problem of employ~
ing many new teachers, it has a duty towards the ones that have
remained. It certainly is not fair to them to bring in men frOm
the outside and not make some provision for them.

The budget now being considered by the legislature will, to

a considerable extent, relieve this situation. Thus, it ought to

provide funds for the many new teachers, whose salaries must, of

necessity, be at a higher rate. It should provide for increasing

the compensation of the others, so that comparative salaries will

not look too unfair. While all these demands for salaries are

present, there is also the greatly increased cost of materials

which the University must fees in connection with its normal er

pension in other directions. m

(3) The Salary Limitation

Between the date when the Court of Appeals ruled that salaries
above $5,000 could not be paid and the present, 50 teaChers have
been lost to the University for the following reasons:

(a) A goodly number left because they were offered salaries
in excess of $5,000 elsewhere.

(b) Others left, not necessarily because they were offered
$5,000 or more elsewhere, but because the prospects for young men
to receive adequate campensation were better elsewhere than the
immediate future promised here.

The University has not been able to recruit Soholars in certain
fields who have attained a reputation because it could not induce them “I.
to come at the low figure which it could promise. Still others refused K‘
to come, not necessarily because of the immediate salary but rather
because, for the future, their prospects were better in other institutionm

Thus, the University of Kentucky is in competition with all the other
schools in the country. Certain universities which we have always re«
garded as being inferior to us in standards and in accomplishments are
able to pick off our men when they desire to fill particular positions.
and no one can blame teachers for going to schools where they are
offered better salaries. Thus, this is perhaps the worst thing that
has ever happened to this or to any other university.

(4) Uninformsd Criticism

there has been much uninformed criticism of the University in the way
in which it has tried to meet them, Everybody feels that he is a i
part owner in the University. All people feel that they have the f
privilege of criticizing it, and they all exercise that privilege to

the utmost. They have not had the responsibility of meeting the problems
which grew out of the war. They have not thouht out the difficulties
which arose when peace came, attended by an influx of students, a demand
for new teachers, and the increased cost of living and of materials. They
have not procured the facts as a basis for criticism.

The President of the University, Dr. Donovan, has been at the
forefront while these matters have been so pressing. He has worked day
and night, unselfishly, with the greatest diligence and with much wisdom.
Others have helped, as far as they were able to do so, but he is the one
who must bear the brunt of the burden. He has done a good and faithful
gob, with tireless energy. It is only fair that we should acknowledge
these efforts which he has made on behalf of the University and express to
him our appreciation and our most cordial and hearty supnort. If these
sentiments appeal to my colleagues, as I h0pe they do, then Mr. Chamber-
lain, Chairman, I move that they be declared to be the sentiments of the
entire group here.

Following Dean EVans' remarks, President Donovan expressed his appreciation
of the attitude of the Faculty. He stated that he had gone to the General
Assembly with a reguest for an appropriation that was double anything the Uni-
versity had had before, and that prespects were good for its being approved.

He stated also that the charges brought by the four students might do some

good in that they would call attention to the needs of the
