    Mr. Nicholas made report of the Committee on Finance, which
is as follows:-


     To the Board of Trustees of the State College of Kentucky.


     We your Finance Committee report, that after a whole days
careful examination of the accounts of the Business Agent from
Dec.lst 1905 to Nov. 1st 1906 both of the College proper, and
the Girls' Dormitory, we find them correct and kept with con-
scientious and painstaking care, for which the Business Agent
and Assistant are entitled to much praise.


    We think that in order to have uniformity of purpose as P.130
between the College and the Experiment Station, that the same
committee should examine the accounts of both. We also think
it would be more business like if the accounts presented by
officers and employees, excepting salaries, were required to be
audited by said Committee or the Executive Committee or the Chair-
man of the Executive Committee, before they are paid.


    We believe that in conformity to the provisions of the
charter that all officers and professors both in college proper




 







MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,Dec.12,1906 Page 130(cont'd)



and in Experiment Station should be paid their salaries in full
in money, and not allow any perquisities. We know that the
allowance of such perquisites has been usual heretofore and
that the recipients are not in any way to blame, for receiving
them, but as such usage might grow into an abuse, and also be-
cause the law requires we recommend as strict compliance with
the charter in this respect, at the same time giving full money
allowance for perquisites given up.

                                   C. B. Nicholls, Chairman
                                   Geo. B. Kinkead

Commutation for perquisites given to certain Professors at this

     Chairman Board of Trustees of State College:-
        Your committee on Military Instruction and discipline,

Dormitories on the grounds, unless the Commandant be required to
reside upon the grounds and maintain proper discipline among the

students. We therefore report that this requirements of the
Commandant be made for the next Collegiate year.

                   Signed - John MoChord Ohm.

                                     W. T. Lafferty7





     Judge Kinkead, a member of said Committee dissents from

MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,Dec.12,1906 Page 132(cont'd)



     Ayes - Judge Kinkead.

Metcalfe, Terrell, Patterson and Oarpenter -   9'7

     The motion was lost.





     At this point Mr. Hopkins made an oral report for the
Committee on the President's Report as follows:-

     We have not prepared a written report, but desire to make
an oral report, if acceptable to the Board.


     The first suggestion the President makes in his Renort is
that the name of the college be changed to University. We are
of opinion that this would require an Act of the Legislature,
and approve the suggestion with that modification.


     To this part of the Report endorsing the President's
suggestion as to a change of name, Mr. Metcalfenoted his
dissent.





     The second recommendation is in regard to athletic exercises
such as base-ball and foot-ball, and especially in connection
with foreign teams or what is known as prize match games. The
committee is unanimously of the opinion that all such games
should be prohibited and that athletic exercise of this kind
should be limited to games between different teams of the col-
lege with each other; but that no teams should be permitted to
go abroad to play, or to have match teams to come upon the
grounds to play with them.




 





MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,Dec.12, 1906 Page 133



     The reference of the unfortunate occurence on Halloween
night, we do not think calls for any response from us, as that
matter is now closed.





     The suggestion that the dormitories on the college grounds
should be discontinued as such and used for other college
purposes is a question which is refered to the Legislature,
this Committee being of the opinion that this Board is un-
authorized under the law as it now stands, to make such a change.
We suggest that at the next June meeting a Committee be appoint-
ed, and directed to look after this matter before the Legis-
lature.





     At this point President Patterson offered the following
resolution:

     Resolved that there be appointed a Committee on Athletics
to consist of Mr. Hopkins, Mr. Metcalfe, Mr. McChord and
Judge Kinkead, to investigate the condition of college athletics,
college amusements, and college fraternities, and report to the
Board at its next June meeting.


     Said motion was seconded by Mr. Nicholas, put upon its
passage and carried.






     Mr. Nicholas reported for the Committee on Finance orally
as follows:

     The committee reports that it has examined the Report of
the Treasurer, and finds same to be correct.


    At this point upon motion duly made, seconded and carried
the Board adjourned sine die .
