                                March 21, 1917

Executive Committees,
     University of Kentucky.

Gentl em en:

      Since your last meeting, everything pertaining to the
University as an educational institution has been going
forward in the most satisfactory manner.

      In undertaking to execute your suggestion with regard
to the spraying of the trees and beautifying the campus,
I found difficulty, which grew out of the fact that Professor
McFarland seems to have overlooked the rights and duties of
his superior, Professor Mathews. As soon as I found this
friction existed, I called the Dean of Agriculture, explained
the situation to him, and required, at his hands; a satis-
factory solution of the whole matter, which would carry out
your orders and at the same time get rid of all friction.
This he has done in a report to you this morning, which will
be read to you and which, I think you should adopt.

     I had the impression that the memorial unifying the
College of Agriculture, which was sent to you sometime ago,
had been adopted by the Board. I understand that it was only
received and filed. I am quite sure this Board intended to
adopt this memorial, and I have acted upon it as a law of
the University. I hope you will now adopt it as of the date
it was filed,

     In adjusting the matter of appointments in Extension,
I have ruled, based upon the memorial above referred to, that
all appointments of officers, agents or employees in Extension
work shall first be recommended to the Dean of the College of
Agriculture, who, if he aooroves theip, will recommend them to
me, and shall make them subject to your approval and, if
necessary, to the ap~)r6val of the Extension Committee. I think
there is a little vagueness as to the authority of the Extension
Committee which meets at Frankfort, and of which his Excellency,
the Governor, i.s Chairman. This Committee meets tonight, and


I desire to have them ratify my ruling as to appointments In
the Extension service. This will unify and harmonize all the
Agricultural authorities and get rid of any friction along the
line indicated.

     Professor Roberts sets forth a statement of what the
Experiment Station zan do in furnishing funds for Extension
service next year to meet the requirements of the Smith-ghever
Bill.  I commend this Dart of the report to you as an exposition
of how we can meet the terms-of the Smith-Lever Bill in full
and thus give to the Deonle of Kentucky the benefit of all funds
furnished by the State and the United States Government.

     In establishing Home Economics as an indetendent department
sometime ago, we overlooked the fact that Miss Mary E. Sweeney
was only an Associate Professor. In order to give her a proper
rank, T now suggest that she be made a full professor without
any increase in pay. This entails no additional cost of the
University but completes the symmetry of this Independent de-

     In arranging for the athletics for next year, I find that
it will be much to the advantage of the University to retain
Doctor Tigert as coach. I therefore, request that his leave
of absence from the Chair of Philosophy be extended another
year. This will leave the matter in statu quo, entailing no
expense on the University, and the work be done Just as satis-
factorily as last year.  I hope you will adopt this suggestion,
as I think, under all circumstances, it will redound to the good
of the whole institution.

                            Very %espectfully,

                                  H. S. Barker. President.

     The regular order of business was suspended and Professor
F. Paul Anderson, Chairman of the Committee of Deans appeared
before the Board and made the following report:

     Professor Anderson detailed, after submitting his repo*tt
the outline of study and discussed for the enlightenment of
the Board, various phases of a recent enactment of Federal law
affecting Military Training in Universities as set out in
General Orders #49 issued by the War Department at Washington.
Dean Anderson then discussed fully for the understanding of the
Board that part of his report which also recommended and out-
lined a new course of study in the UTniversitytobe known as
"lMilitary Science Leading to a Degree of B.S." and the benefits
which in his judgment the establishing of such a course in the
University would bring, both to the institution, the students
and the Federal Government.

     Dean Anderson s interpretation of General Orders No. 49
was briefly; that drill work wauld continue for two years thra-
out the Freshman and Sophomore years as it does now but that
the government would, for these years, assume the expense of
uniforms for students so drilling; that at the close of the
two years required by all Land Grant Colleges, the student
might then elect to proceed with Military Training for an ad-
ditional two years, the government agreeing if he did so eleot,
to continue to furnish the student one uniform a year and pay-
ment of 30 each day he drilled.

     Dean Anderson explained the limitation of the eourse in
Military Science which his Committee had recommended as an ad-
ditional department in University Training. He said that the
student taking such course and electing this as his major,
would be required to complete to the satisfaction of the various
instructors involved, the course outlined, in the renort aDzended:
that uniforms would be furnished for students throughout the
entire four years by the government and that when the student
had completed the course outlined, he would then be In linefr
official duty in the U.S. Army.  He said that as matters now
stood such student would be expected to take a Federal Examina-
tion if he desired to enter the Army, but that he VelleVed that
as soon as matters asumed more definite form, the government
would see it s way clear to accept graduation in the course here
outlined as final credentials for entrance upon official duty
in the army; that this official duty would carry with it the
usual army salaries.

     Details of the Military Training cowrse were di-susssed
freely among members of the Board. Mr. Stoll then moved that
the report of the Committee of Deans Military Training be
adonted ind coursas of studr provided for therein be estab-
lished; that the Committee of Deans with the Commandant addied
be authorized to direct professors and instructors in this in-
stitution to teach the subjects recommended as nart of their
regular instruction duty, tiat the Commandant be designated
as Head of the Department of Military Science and that Presil
dent Barker be directed to fill out and forward to the Adju-
tant General at the War Department in Washington the application


required in General Orders No. 49 which in words Is as follows:

               APPENDIX III.

shall, as regards such student, be a prerequisite for
graduation; to allot a minimum of an average of three
hours per week per academic year to military training and
instruction during the first two academic years and to

                (a) Number of members of same.
                (bW Official designation of the head of the

     Mr. Stollts motion was ad-opted unanimoU-sly, Mlessrs. Stoll,
Brown, Johndon, Brock and lFtchdea, the last named of whom had
come in after the meeting had convened, voted in the affirmative.

     Dean Miller of tile College of Arts and Science was called
Into the room and aEsked concerning the arrangement by which
Doctor j. J. Tigert was given a leave of absence for one year
to take charg e of the football team.  Dean Miller reported In
response to questions by -Doard members, that since Doctor
Tigert's retirement from the chair of Philosophy which he held
at the time the leave of absence went into effect the chair had
been filled by Doctor Gflanville Terrell to his and the entire
satisfaction of Professor Noe, Head of Department of Education,
Asked whether the work done in this chair by Doctor Tigert had
been satisfactory, Dean Miller explained that during the time
that Doctor Tigert was giving his entire attention to teaching,
hii work was eminently satisfactory but that when it became
necessary to divide his attention between football on one hand
and the chair of Philosophy on the other, his teaching work
had not been entirely satisfactory. This question had been
precipitated by reason of the fact that Doctor Tigert desired
a definition on whether he could come back to his chair, Dean
Miller said further that if Doctor Tigert insists on returning
to that work, he ie entitled to come back to the chair of
Phil oaophy.

     Dean Millar:  I had only satisfactory reports of Doctor
                   Tigert's teaching when he gave that teach-
                   tig his full attention.

     Mr. Brown:    Can the chalr be eliminated and the work
                   be continued satisfactorily Under the pre-
                   sent arrangement?

     Dean Miller:  It could be satisfactorily continued under
                   the arrangement that now obtains.


     Dean Miller said further, "if Doctor Tigert should return,
Doctor Terrell would handle the classics.  In that event we
could get along without Miss Pollitt. Eliminati~n of Miss
Pollitt would bring about a saving of $800 difference in
salaries. She gets $600 now and I have recommended $800. Doctor
Tigert's salary would be $2000 .8

     Mr. Johnston: Would Doctor Terrell be willing to continue
                    as matters now stand in case Doctor Tigert's
                    leave of absence were extended another year?

     Dean Miller:   I am satisfied that Doctor Terrell would
                    not object to Continuing.

     Dean Miller at this point said that he was opposed to
indefinite leaves of absence because in his judgment such
leaves had a tendency to cause the work of teaching to dis-

     At this point, Mr. Stoll moved that the question of con-
tinuing Doctor Tigert's 'leave of absence be referred to the
Committee of Deans with a request that they report at the
next regular meeting of this Board. Without objection, the
motion was adopted.

     After discussiyg details of the proposed purchase of
certain property lying East of the University and belonging
to the estate of the late James H. Mulligan, which purchase
was authorized by the Board of Trustees in a meeting at
Frankfort January 31, 1917, Mr. Stoll offered a resolution
which was as follows:

          WHEREAS, the Board of Trustees of the University of
     Kentucky has heretofore authorized the Executive Oommittee
     of the University to purchase the property belonging to

     Winslow Street to Washington Avenue and to make whatever
     arrangements might be necessary to com-plete the said pur-
          AND 'WHEREAS, the Attorney General for the State of
     Kentucky has by letter advised the President of the
     University that the Board of Trustees can not lawfully

     may have accumulated or may hereafter accaumulate from time
     to time in the pDhase thereof, which letter is in part
     as followste wit:

               "I am of the opinion that some one may purchase
          the property as Trustee and hold it for the University,
          and the University may pay as much on the property as
          It can out of surplus funds, or it may furnish the
          Trustee money to pay part of the purchase price."
