     2. Purchase of.Coal. The purchase of coal had been author-
ized at a previous meeting.   The Superintendent of Buildings and
Grounds reported that bids had been received from a humber of
dealers and that a contract had been let to Kinkead Coal Company,
Lexington, Kentucky, for delivery throughout the year, this
company having presented the lowest bid at $4.40 a ton.   On mo-
tion, duly seconded, the contract was approved.   (Contract not
entered in minutes).

     3. Purchase of Land for the Experiment Station. Dean Cooper
appeared before the Committee at its request to explain his recom-
mendation for the purchase of certain land for the experiment
station.   He explained that since 1923, the Experiment Station
had been renting a farm from Miss Katherine Pettit of approximately




 





6.



130 acres, and that an option was in force expiring March 30,
1924, Riving the University the right to purchase the land at a
price of $300 an acre.   He also explained that the Van Mleter
farm, adjoining Experiment Station property is leased for 1924.
The matter was discussed at length, and a motion was made,
seconded, and adopted, authorizing Dean Cooper to exercise the
terms of the option for the purchase of the Pettit property, and
also authorizing him to obtainjif possible, an option on the
Van Meter farm.

     4. Refund of Pees to Stulents.   President McVey presented
to the Committee letters from three ex-service men, Ava. Caywooa,
C. E. Cecil and R. P. Maloney making application for refund of
fees paid by them.   These letters set forth excuses for not
filing application in accordance with the terms of the ex-service
menTs act providing for free tuition for ex-service men.    Presi-
dent McVey explained to the Committee that in cases where ex-
service men do not comply with the requirements of the law in
filing applications for free tuition, that such fees are exacted
of them and that only on action of the Executive Committee or
Board of Trustees can refunds be made.    A motion was made,
seconded and adopted, authorizing the President to use his dis-
cretion in these particular cases.

     5. Sub-Experiment Station in Western Kentucky. A communi-
cation from the Chamber of Commerce of Mayfield, Kentucky, was
read and ordered incorporated in the minutes, as follows:

                         M A Y F I E L D
                         ChAABLR OF COMM.E'RCE

    H. J. Wright, President                  Mayfield, Kentucky
    L. F. Orr, Secretary                      February 10, 1924

    Board of Trustees
         University of Kentucky
              Lex ington, Kentucky

    Gentlemen:

         This is to advise that we are in position and will
    deliver clear titles to tract No. 2 inspected by Prefessor
    Roberts on his recent trip to Mayfield, details follow:

         153 acres, J. E. Usher farm improved with two dwell-
    ings, stock and tobacco barns.    This farm is in mood state
    of repair.

         40 acres, W. B. Britton land improved with tobecco barn.

         50 acres, C. T. Eng lish land improved with modern
    dwelling, tobacco and stock barns, deep well with windm1lV.




 






7.



         862 acres, Mrs. Sweeney land improved with two dwellings,
    stock and tobacco barns, deep well with windmill.

        66 acres, Morgan land improved with modern brick dwell-
    ing, stock and tobacco barns.

         Total 395- acres improved land lying in one parcel
    almost square, 14 miles from courthouse on Dukedom Highway,
    with water main piped i thin quarter-mile of property.
    All of this land is under f ence, has never been limed and is
    ideal for experimental work, being rypical of the lands of
    western Kentucky upland.

         This is the same parcel of land inspected by Professor
    Roberts, except that he inspected Morgan property along with
    Houseman land farther up the road, and lies between Kess
    Creek and turn in road directly across road and opposite
    Usher property, and is much more desirable than fifty acres
    of Morgan property inspected in connection with tract 2.

         If you desire a few acres more to carry out experiments,
    we' will obtain same and deliver on or af ter July 1, 1924.

         This offer is made contingent upon being able to secure
    nessary funds to develop and in the event that it should
    cease to be operated as an experiment station for a period
    of six years or over, then in that event property shall re-
    vert t donors.

         However, vwe want you to clearly understand we wrnt no
    strings, whatever, tied to its operation, the reversion
    clause being stipulated merely to insure its operation as an
    agricultural experiment station.

         Will appreciate the pleasure of receiving report of
    favorable action at your earliest convenience.

                                      Yours truly

                                 (Signed)  L. F. Orr,
                                            Secretary

     After discussion, a motion was made, seconded, and adopted
as follows:   That it is the sense of the Executive Committee
that the land offered by the Mayfield Chamber of Commerce be ac-
cepted, provided the Legislature will make an appropriation of as
much as U20,000 annually for its operation.

     6. Resignations Pnd Appointments.   President McVey recom-
