MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,June 30, 1882 - page 24-25



    At an adjourned meeting of the Board of Trustees of
the Agricultural and Mechanical College below the City of
Lexington on the 30th June 1882.

     Present             W. B. Kinkead
                         R. S. Bullock
                         J. G. Simrall
                         P. P. Johnston
                         B. J. Peters
                         L. J. Bradford
                         D. C. Buell
                         B. F. Buckner



     The Committee composed of D. C. Buell, P. P. Johnston
and B. F. Buckner reported in writing as follows.

     " Judge W. B. Kinkead - President of the A. & M.
College of Ky. "

Sir

     The Committee to Whom was referred the question of the
proper measures to adopt by retrenchment or otherwise to meet
the present financial condition of the College have had that
subject under attentive consideration, and have the honor
to report.

     The resources of the College and its liabilities are
well understood by the Board and we have no suggestion to
offer for an increase of the former or immediate liquidation
of the latter. The revenues will come in at stated periods
in somewhat regular order and will of course be applied to
the College debts. We suggest that for those debts remain-
ing unpaid after the disbursement of money which will be
available in a few days, some evidence of indebtedness
shall be given to the several creditors.

     We do not favor a reduction in the present salaries
of the professors, but we recommend a partial reorganization
that will probably result in a reduction in the aggregate
amount paid for salaries.




 









MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,June 3Oth,1882 - page 25-26



     We recommend the abolition of the Commercial as a dis-
tinct department and any independent organization of the
preparatory department, and that they be merged into the
Normal Department where in our opinion they properly
belong under the terms of the College Charter.

     To provide for the proper instruction under this arrange-
ment we recommend that the necessary number of competent
assistants be allowed to the chief of that department with
salaries not exceeding $800. per annum for the first assistant,
not exceeding 600. per annum for the second assistant and
not exceeding 1450. for each additional assistant that may
be required.

     Apart from some economy that will be secured by this
arrangement we feel quite justified in expecting a marked
improvement in the educational machinery of the College
especially for that class of students coming in for temporary
periods and partial benefits. We recommend further with this
view that any merely primary subjects like English Grammar,
Arithmetic and Geography that may now be taught with the
regular departments of the College be transferred to the
" Normal preparatory Department   as the law describes it.

June 30th 1882
( Signed                           B. F. Buckner
                                   D. C. Buell
                                   P. P. Johnston

     On motion of J. G. Simrall the report was received and
filed.

     It was then moved by P. P. Johnston that the report
be adopted, and said motion was duly seconded.

     J. G. Simrall then moved to postpone the consideration
of the report until the next regular meeting of the board,

     And so the motion to adopt the report was lost.



     B. F. Buckner then tendered his resignation as Secretary
to take effect on the 10th day of July, 1882.



     Mr. J. G. Simrall who voted against the adoption of
the report of the Committee (the Committee on retrenchment
be composed of B. F. Buckner, D. C. Buell and P. P. Johnston)
moved to reconsider the vote by which the Board rejected the
report of the Committee and the question being had thereon
the motion prevailed unanimously.



     Mr. J. G. Simrall then moved to amend said report
by giving the Executive Committee the power to employ
assistants at any sums at their discretion in excess of the
sums named in said report, and the Ayes and Noes being
demanded the result was as follows.

Ayes                     Noes
R. S. Bullock            W. B. Kinkead
J. G. Simrall            P. P. Johnston
