tl rapid succession, and the 1917-1918 volume of The Alumnus, which carries the {

iilinilt REPORT OF THE INVESTIGATING COMMITTEE, l
l lll? i In the March and May numbers of The Alumnus the alumni were acquainted
iliiillli l with the resolution of the Board of Trustees authorizing the appointment by
5 illlll ‘ Governor Stanley of a committee to investigate conditions at the University of _
tc llm  . Kentucky.
m’ llc { One of the first acts of this committee was to employ the assistance of ` .
 · experts in university matters with the request that they make a complete survey l
i of the University and submit a report of their findings. This Survey Corn- l
Dlftft . mittee consisted of Dr. K. C. Babcock, Dean of the College of Arts and i
TY¤5· = Science, University of Illinois; Charles Maxwell McConn, Registrar of the ,
`F, and  ' University of Illinois; and President Thomas F. Kane, President of Olivet Col- i
li?llll>' { lege, Olivet, Michigan. E
HC ltii  I In addition to this the Investigating Committee called before them at their |
YCHW- . various meetings, every person whom they had any reason whatever to believe  
Umlllli  _ could give them information which would assist them in reaching a correct _  
if ll1i5 {  conclusion regarding any and all conditions at the University. They further- Q
te l>°  _ more, through the press and at a called meeting of the entire instructional force i
 · of the University not only invited but requested that every one who had any g
nonely * information which he considered would be of interest to the Committee would  
i meet with them and give them any facts which they had in mind. K
Of th, - The Investigating Committee made their report to the Board of Trustees y   `
that it at their regular _lune meeting. In this report they embodied practically- every f
\\"i¤i¤ `_  item of the recommendations of the Survey Committee. All of the Committee,  
'llmlli if  except Mr. H. M. Froman, signed this report. He did not agree with the other  
  four members, Mr. Gordon, Mr. Lyle, Dr. Amon and Mr. Turner, in a few  
thauil  ° reconnnendations. Every recommendation of the Investigating Committee,  
`_  except the one with reference to Dr. Patterson, was adopted by the Board of  
, Trustees. I
css my I The work of the Investigating Committee was without doubt done in a i ·
 I thoro manner and if their recommendations, which have been adopted by the i
ml lll; . Trustees, are carried out in detail there should bc great improvement in the con-
nélgiliic V ¤s Ht the University and a new day of progress should be dawning.
higiwti ‘=  Some of the more interesting and important recommendations of the Com- t
_ mittee are as follows: l
sc wlitl _ President Barl·;er`s retirement to take effect upon the first day of Septcm— l
will he ber, IQI8. l
t The retirement of Dean Rowe immediately, I
