     A. Resolution for Application for Celestial Navigation Trainer.

     President Donovan stated that the University would like to apply
for a celestial navigation trainer, which is now located in Nevada,
and that we have been notified by Lir. J. B. Williams, Director of
Surplus Property, Department of Education, Frankfort, Kentucky, that
it would be necessary to file application at once in order for the
proper authorities to consider the various applications of institu-
tions throughout the United States,   It was further explained that
the celestial navigation trainer would be of great assistance at the
University and would become an integral part of the training program
in astronomy, aeronautics, physics, mathematics, engineering and mil-
itary science.   Some of the programs would make greater use of this
instrument than others, but the instrument would be of much assistance
to the University.   The following resolution was read:

        versity of Kentucky, at Lexington, Kentucky, be and he
