We E. Freeman, Campaign Manager, with respect thereto:

                                         April 15, 1920

     President Frank L. MoVey

          University of Kezntuoky

     My dear President McVey:

          In reply to your letter of April 10, I wish to say
     that the total amount of cash and subscriptions now on
     hand in the Kentucky Memorial Building fund is about
     $162,000.   This sum may be divided as follows:

          Due from the Gounty Df Fayette by Fiscal Court
             Appropriation .............,.e.,.. $25,000

           Due from the City of Lexington Bond Issues....  75,000

           Invested in 4 and 3/4 per oent United
             States Treasury certificates of Indebtedness 32,000

         Cash on deposit in Phoenix and Third
           National Bank of this city ..... ...... $ 3,000

         Unpaid pledges in this office .......... 20,000

         Subscriptions reported but not yet
            in this office, approximately.......   7..000
                 Total...                        $16b2,000

         Mr. Boggess has been fairly successful in his work in
    the adjoining counties.   In Bourbon County he succeeded in
    working up an organization which reported on Mareh 27 that
    they had received cash and pledges to the amount of $3,300.
    Some ten days ago Mr. Boggess advised me that this amount
    had been increased to five or six thousand dollars.   He
    has brought to this office from Estill County about $600 in
    cash and subscriptions, and during last week was continuing
    his work there and in Lee County.

          I have not received a rep-r-t from him since my return
     from the senior inspection trip on last Sunday.   Mr. Boggess
     met with very little success in Clark County, but there will
     probably be some subscriptions turned in from the citizens
     of Winchester and Clark County by the: War Mothers.

                                         Yours very truly,

                                              W. E. Freeman,

                                                   Campaign Manager.

     2. Application of Sigma Alpha Epsilon for Building Site.
President MoVey read a letter from Addison C. Foster, Seoretary of
the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Building Association, Lexington, Kentucky,
making application for a building site for the erection of a frater-
nity house on the University Campus to cost approximately $35,O00.
The Committee received the application favorably and instructed the
Secretary to inform the fraternity that the matter was under consider-
ation and they would be advised regarding the building site as soon
as possible.

     3. Report of Business Agent.   The financial report of the
Business Agent was received and ordered filed.

     4. Beport of Committee on Purchase of Coal.    The Committee on

April 26, 1920



    President Frank L. MoVey

         University of Kentucky

    My dear President MoVey:

         The Committee appointed to purchase coal advertised
    in the Lexington newspapers for bids, and sent notices to
    all coal companies having offices in Lexington and also to
    companies outside of Lexington.  No bids have yet been
    made except by the Kinkead Coal Company and it was merely
    to furnish and deliver the coal at market price when de-
    livered.

         Mr. Grady was here Saturday and it was then decided
    to postpone letting contract.

                                       Respectfully,

                                            D. H. Peak,

                                                  Business Agent.

     5. George Peabody Fund.  The Business Agent transmitted a
notice from t]e Phoenix and Third Trust Company of Lexington, Ken-
tuoky, indicating that the University's note for $35,000 on account
of purchase of Liberty Bonds with the George Peabody Fund, was due.
On motion, the Business Agent atar the Chairman of the Executive Com-
mittee were instructed to pay the interest and renew the note.

     6. Capital Account and Indebtedness of the University.   After
discussion of the capital account and indebtedness of the University
as indicated by tIh auditors Marwiok, Mitchell, Peat and Company;
President MoVey was requested by the Committee to report to the Board
at its meeting in June, the conditions of the capital account and
the University debt.

     7' Carey-Reed Acocunt.  A bill for $3,600 for work on the Uni-
versity campus and the building of the road from Patterson Hall across
the University campus, was presented by the Carey-Reed Company.   It
was indicated that the contract was let in 1916 by Dr. Joseph Hoeing
Kastle, Director of the Experiment Station.   At a previous meeting
of the Executive Committee, at which Mr. Carey presented the bill,
it was ordered that the account be paid as soon as the road was oian
pleted.   On motion duly made and seconded, the Business Agent was
instructed to pay the bill on receipt of a written statement from
the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds, that the work was completed




 






4.



in a satisfactory manner.  A bill was also presented from the Carey-
Reed Company for $181.28 for road construction on Graham Avenue, done
in 1916 on order of Dr. Joseph Hoeing Kastle, Director of the Experi-
ment Station.   On motion duly made and seconded, the Business Agent
was instructed to pay the bill upon receipt of a written statement
from the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds or from Mr. Henry
E. Curtis, Bursar of the Experiment Station, to the effect that the
work has actually been completed in a satisfactory manner.  During
the discussion Mr. Ernst presided and Mr. Stoll declined to vote or
take part in the discussion of the claims presented.

     8. Claim of Mrs. R. 0. Stout.  The Business Agent presented to
the Committee a claim of $79 in favor of Mrs. Stout, Physical Direc-
tor for women at the University, arising out of certain fees which
Mrs. Stout claims the University collected for private physical
education lessons given by her in 1919, 1914, and 1916 under an agree-
ment with the University by which she was to receive during the summer
session one-half of the fees collecte!.  One-half of the fees amounted
to $81.50 and certain other itar,;s in connection therewith, amounted
to $79.  Deducting therefrom one-half the coal bill, which Mrs. Stout
agreed to pay, would leave a net balance due her of $136.26.   The
Business Agent was instructed to pay this amount and to take a receipt
therefor.

     9. Appointments, Resignations and Leaves of Absence.  The fol-
lowing list of appointments, resignations and requests for leaves

was presented to the Committee by President McVey:

          At a meeting of the Extension Committee of the Board
     o.- Trustees on Monday, April 5, 1920, Dean Cooper called
     attention to the resolution adopted by the Board of Trus-
     tees at its meeting in January relative to Mr. G. T. Wyatt,
     which was as follows: "That the employment of Mr. Wyatt
     as district agent be continr.red at a salary rate of $208 1/3
     a month, his services to u-teri from month to month at the
     pleasure of the Board of Trustees."

          Dean Cooper recommended to the Extension Committee
      that the services of Mr. Wyatt as district agent be
      discontinued, that he be relieved from duly at once and
      continued on pay until May 15, 1920.

           Following the recommendation of Dean Cooper, the ex-

 bility of discontinuing Mr. Wyatt's services, Dean Cooper was
 called before the Committee to make a statement.    He stated some-
 what in detail the conditions existing, and indicated that a oom-
 plete lack of confidence, extenading over a considerable period of

 desirable to discontinue Mr. `aytt s services.    After discussion,

                                         Wasfhingtot, D. C. March 4, 1920

      Dr. Frank L. McVey
           University of Kentucky
                Lexington, Kentuc-ky

      My dear Doctor MoVey;

           I am very glad to rev;ive your revised application for
      an allotment from the Educational Research and Development
      Fund.  When Doctor Small returned from Kentucky late in
      January he reported favorably upon such a revised applica-
      tlQn as had been agreed upin between you.

           I findohoveverthere are some differences between the
      budgetary forecast that he reported had been agreed upon
      and that whioh appears in your revised application.    His
      report showed the following estimates:




 




8-



    1. Director .....................  $4,000.00
    2. Medical Examiner-& college
        physician combined ............ 3,000.00
    3. Woman head of physical educa-
         tion and medical examiner
         for women .................... 2,500.00
    4. Woman assistant ......  .......... 1,500.00
    5. Physical training (men) at
         present rate ................. 6,450.00
    6. Nurse .......................... 1,200.00
    7. Allowanoe for dentist ..........   500.00
    8. Clerical service ............... 1,200.00
    9. Lectures .......................  . 200.00
            Total ..................... 20,550.00

    He reported further that of this it was understood
that the University could furnish $9,450. The balance,
$11,100, should be asked from the Board.

    Your application indicates that the University is pre-
pared to furnish only $64,0O, ot $3,000 less than Doctor
Small understood you were to furnish.   I think he was under
the impression that you were already paying a physician for
part-time service, and also a nurse.

     If his understanding vflas correct, and there is there-
fore an error in your revised application, I should be glad
to have that corrected ande the an ount asked for reduced to
$11, 100.

     The growing demands for assistance from this fund, sup-
ported by evidence of need and ability and desire to establish
departments of hygiene in the army institutions applying,
makes it necessary for us to ask all the institutions that
apply to make their requests as modest as possible.

     I note also that the application as filled out is indefi-
nite in some respects.   It seetns to cover the work now given
rather than to indicate how it proposes to fulfill the suggested
requirements under the several divisions.

     It is further noted that under the heading "Sanitary Sur-
veys" you state that you "*xpeet to cooperate with the State
Department of Education in extension work in the state under
the new law".   You will notioe that what is contemplated
under this heading is sanitary surveys and hygienic inspec-
tions within the institution, "their curriculums, buildings,
dormitories, equipment, personal service and surroundings".
It is not contemplated that any part of the appropriation shall
be used for such extensiv'n work as suggested.  (This topic is
touched upon in a later paragraph).




 









9.



     I have taken the liberty of rewriting the application
in such a way as to interpret accurately (I hope) your
purposes, and at the same time to give the fullet state-
ment that we desire.   In doind this I have not attempted
to fill in the budgetary forecast, as I am still in doubt
of course as to exactly that should go into that.   (Thd
extra application form is to be returned by you in dupli-
cate.)

     If this restatement is satisfactory to you and you will
return the application with the budgetary forecast completed
and the proper signatures, I shall be glad to present your
application with favorable recommendation at the next meet-
ing of the Board.



     A plan of cooperation between the State University and
the State Department of Education has been worked out in
Mississippi whereby a special allotment may be made through
the State University to establish in the State Department
of Education a Division of Educational Hygiene.   Dr. Ji W.
Catr has consulted with Doctbr Small about the possibility
Of establishing such a relationship in Kentucky, and has
*eceived the necessary information in regard to this matter,
from Doctor Small.

      I am enclosing herewith copies of the form of agree-
ment worked out for Mississippi, which is applicable to
other states.

      I am just now in receipt of a letter from the State
 Superintendent, Doctor Co`,vin, in regard to the matter.
 It will be a distinct satisfaction to me if we can be of
 assistance in this way to the State Department of Educa-
 tion in putting into effect the new law fok physical educa-
 tion in Kentucky. -

                                     Very truly yours,

                                          T. A. Storey



       Executive Secretary
Interdepartmental Social Hygiene Board.

Dr. T. A. Storey
     1800 Virginia Avenue, N. W.
          Washington, D, C.

My dear Mr. Storey:

     I am enclosing the applications for the establishment
of the Department of Hygiene at the University of Kentucky.
These applications are made out as suggested in your recent
letter.

     I have put in the allcwran-;e for the University at
$9,450, leaving the balance from the fund $11,100.    The
failure to include the $3,000 referred to in your letter
was due to the fact that I did not find a clause where I
could put it in the application.    I trust that the appli-
cation is in such form that it can go before the Board for
its consideration.

     I note what you say about a plan of cooperation between
the State University and the State Department of Education.
I take it that a special allotment would be made thru the
State University to establish at the State Department of
Education a Division of Educational Hygiene.

     Will you please inform me whether or not the statement
above is correct?   When I hear from you, I shall be glad
to take the matter up with Mr. Colvin.

                                    Very truly yours,

                                         Frank L. McVey,

                                               President.

My dear President MoVoy:

     I have your letter of March i3th enclosing the application
for the establishment of a Department of Hygiene at the Univer-
sity of Kentucky.  I shall take pleasure in presenting your
application with favorable recommendation at the next meeting
of the Interdepartmental Social Hygiene Board.

    University and the State Department of Education, you are
    right in assuming that this plani and this allotment are en-
    tirely distinct from the plan a.ni allotment for establishing
    the Department of Hygiene.   The Board has been willing and
    indeed anxious to assist certain State departments in ektab-
    lishing divisions of hygiene and has found that the only way

    ments to colleges, universities and other suitable organiza-
    tions and institutions.   Under the interpretation given to
    the words "organizations" and "institutions- by the control-"
    lingauthorities a State Department of Education is not an
    organization or institution, but merely a department of govern-
    dient and therefore no allotment can be made directly to a
    State Department of Education. It is admissable, however, to
    make th
