     President McVey presented the Report of the Board of Trustees

     4. Widening South Limestone Street -- Woolley Property.

     The following resolution was passed:

          BE IT RESOLVED that the completion of the Limestone
     Street project, providing for the widening of that thoro-
     fare from the Good Samaritan Hospit. to the end of the
     University property, calls for the cooperation of all ovm-
     ers of property in that area.

          The Executive Committee ,knowing the public spirit
     of Mr. Charles N. Manning, trustee of the Woolley estate,
     requests him to give favorable consideration to the pro-
     posal of the city, so that the project may be carried
     out completely as outlined by the city engineers.    It is
     the opinion of the Executive Committee of the University
     of Kentucky that such assistance on the part of the
     trustee of the Woolley estate will make it possible to
     carry out this project as indicated, and by such act
     would be doing a public service of the highest importance
     to this city,   The Committee has requested the President
     of the University to present this matter to Mr. Manning
     at an early date.

     5. Student Union Building and the P. . A.

     Gordon E, Burns and Walter Steitler appeared before the Com-
mittee on behalf of Nu Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa Fraternity and
presented the following resolution, dated January 11, 1934:


     Be It Resolved:
                   That we, the ;members of Omicron Delta Kappa
     Fraternity, firm in the belief that we know the sentiments
     of the Student Body of the University of Kentucky, respect-
     fully request that the Board of Trustees of the University
     of Kentucky make application to the Public Works Adr!iinis-
     tration for funds sufficient to erect and furnish a Student
     Union Building on the University of Kentucky campus.

                  It is our conviction that the debt incurred
     by the erection of this building can be amortized over a
     period of years that will satisfy the basis for repayment
     of this loan.   We submit herewith a financial prospectus
     which shows what we believe to be a conservative estimate
     of the income that will be derived from such a building.

                  We believe that the Student Body will vote
     to pay a feo of two dollars ($2.00) per semester for mem-
     bership to the Union Building Association which will pro-
     vide all the privileges of the building and of the swim -
     ming pool..

                  We urgently request the Board of Trustees to
     give immediate attention to this resolution so that plans
     for the erection of the Student Union Building will be com-
     pleted at once,

     Be It Further Resolved:

                  That we, the members of Omicron Delta Kappa,
     signing this resolution, pledge our best efforts toward
     raising funds and maintaining student interest until this
     building is erected and paid for.
 This resolution was signed by thae president, secretary and twenty-
 two mae.mlbers of Omicron Delta Kappa.
     It was ordered that the resolution be received and recorded
in the minutes and that the fraternity be requested to prepare a
statement showing general plan of building, proposed cost, and
the sources of income.   When the statement is ready it shall be
submitted to the Executive Committee for consideration, but, be-
fore reouest for loan is filed swith the Public Works Administra.-
tion, the plans must be amDroved by the Board of Trustees of the
University of Kentucky.

     6. C. 'W. A. Projects Approved.

     The report of the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds in
regard to C. W. A. projects was received, the projects named
therein approved, and the report ordered incorporated in the Min-
utes.   The report reads as followed


Memo: - President F. L. McVey

                             Re: C. W. A. Projects Approved.

My dear President:

I spent last Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Louisville
at a. W. A. Headquarters and was fortunate in obtaining
approvals on 6 new projects after the dead line had been
set.   All of these projects, however, had been mailed in
on the old forms prior to this date.   Each one had to be
refigured and submitted in muadruplicate on new forms.
The dates were so close that it took some entreaty to get
therm over.  This addition makes a total of 17 projects
approved for the University involving a total expenditure
of some #;26,000  for labor and the employment of 150 stu-

I wish to go on record with a word of praise for Mr. Ro-
land P. Pyne, State 0. W. A. Engineer, in charge of this
division.   Even tho his office is a mad-house he found
time to give courteous and intelligent consideration to
our University projects.

I also wish to say a word about the student labor now em-
ployed on these projects.    I used standard contract units
of time in basing estimates on loving dirt by hand in
Wheelbarrows.   A check on the amount of dcrt moved on
Training School job shows the boys have gone me one better,
they have moved more dirt under the circumstances, muddy
conditions, bad weather and so on, than I figured they
would.   We have only had one boy to dog it on us thus
fars   This leads ne to an observation I have often made
and I will repeat it once more; the University should
constantly strive to provide ways and means for Glen to
work while in school and thus learn the importance of
true values.

The chances seem good for continuing C. W7. A. until late
spring.   If the University could finance materials thru
appropriations our pressing needs could be satisfied for
one-sixth the cost.   It is truly a golden opportunity if
economy is any consideration.

A separate table is attached showing general information
concerning C. IV. A. Projects as approved.

Sincerely yours,

M. J. Crutcher

     8. Property Line at Back of Lots racing Colfax Street.

     The Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds trade the followl-
ing report:

     The recent check of the survey made by the late Professor
     Newman discloses 13 lots, facing Colfax Street to be 5 to
     12 feet on University property.   There are also 3 parcels
     on the S. W. Corner unrecorded, and from all I can find
     out no one seems to have the title thereto.   This makes
     a bad corner, and it would be to our advantage in planning
     and building playgrounds if this matter could be settled.

     The Superintendent was directed to get all the facts and data
available regarding this line and to take proper steps toward plac-
ing the fence on the line of the property conveyed by the City of

     9. Entrance to Patterson Hall Grounds.

     The Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds reported that wher
Limestone Street is widened in front of Patterson Hall property, it
will necessitate rebuilding the driveway on Limestone Street, and
he suggested that the driveway be closed, leaving the circle as it
now is within the lot.   He further suggested that a driveway be
made from Euclid Avenue entering the Patterson Hall lot adjoining
or near Boyd Hall,   His suggestions were approved and he was au-
thorized to proceed with the change in entrance driveway, provided
the project of widening the street in front of Patterson Hall prop-
erty is carried out.

    10, Reouest for Financial Data for T. V. A.

    The reouest of Professor J. at. Manning as shown in the copy
of letter that follows was granted on condition that the checking
be Cone under direct supervision of the Business Office.

     Dear Doctor McVey:                  January 12, 1934

     One of the projects on which we are working under the author-
     ity of the Tennessee Valley has to do with city finance. In
     this connection we are making a study of trends of finance in
     the city of Lexington.   This study involves two types of
     factors, the measurable background factors having to do with
     general economic conditions, and finance proper.   The first
     includes data on employment in representative concerns in
     the city.   'Ve thought t;'ahat the University,being one of the
     largest employers in the city,shouldl be included in this



    list, thus we are asking thoat you grant us permission to
    get from the business office data on the number of persons
    on the University payroll by years since 1925 and the to-
    tal amounts allocated to the pay roll for this time.

    I can assure you that no publicity will be given for the
    matter.   We intend to take all the figures for various
    concerns and group them together, labeling the data fig-
    ures fox representative concerns and not from any one in-
    stitution or business.   At present, we have some of the
    representative businesses down town and we should like
    very much to include the University.

    Sincerely yours,

    J. S. Manning

     Reference is made to Section 7 of the Minutes of the Executive
Committee of November 12, 1933, for statement of the Stears Coal
and Lumber Company as to increase in price of coal at the rate of
30 cents per ton.    The ouestion was referred to the State Purchas-

     Lexington, Kentucky

     Dear Sir:

     The Purchasing Commission, after conferring with you
     last Friday, have decided to grant the Stearns Coal
     Sales Company an increase of twenty-two (22 ) cents
     per ton on coal furnished your institution due to in-
     crease in miners wages.    We feel very happy that we
     have been able to reduce this from the first request.

     Very truly yours,

     (Signed) N. A. Chrisrnan

pany on the basis of settlement made by the State Purchasing Corn-

     Dear President McVey:

          In the development and building of a road from
     Troublesome Creek to Camp Robinson and the forest, it
     was found necessary to go over the right-of-way upon
     which the lease had expired.    In making the adjustment,
     it was considered advisable to purchase this right-of-
     way and readjust certain boundaries with the Johnsons.
     The necessary property can be obtained for $200.     I wish
     to recommend that we be authorized to purchase this land
     at a price not to exceed $200 and to make the necessary

          This matter has been delayed for various reasons
     and it is important that it be settled soon.     I hope,
     therefore, that I may receive your approval, so we may
     make an immediate settlement.
