     2. President's Report. President McVey then made his quar-
terly report         oard.   This report, which upon motion duly
seconded was/ibRagred spread upon the minutes, is as follows:

     Flood and Fire Damages to University Property.    At the
beginning of this quarterly report I am calling attention to two
instances of damage to University property occasioned by flood
and fire.   In June after a heavy rainfall the water on the lower
campus reached such a height that the basement floor of the lien's
Ggmnasium was flooded to within a foot of the ceiling.    The
book store stock and the post office fixtures in the building
were materially injured.   There was a possible salvage of from
$1500 to $2000.   The loss to the stock amounted to about $25000.
The injury to the building from water damage was estimated at

     In November the Men's Gymnasium was injured by fire.    The
damage done amounted to about $10000 covered by insurance.    The
origin of the fire is not certain, but likely developed fSoro
waste paper in one of the rooms.

     Very scow the University will find i.t necessary to reorgan-
ize its nightwatchman service.    It now takes more than two
hours to make one round and with the increasing number of build-
ings the time required will be still greater.

     Building Projects.   I have to report that the recitation
building which you have so graciously called McVey Hall is near-
ing completion.   Arrangements are now being made to furnish
equipment for it and for the cafeteria on the top floor of the
building.   A similar statement can be made regarding the Memo-
rial Building.   When completed this building will have an ex-
cellent auditorium and be equipped for most of the affairs at
the University.   It will be a most welcome addition to the nunm-
ber of University buildings.

     For some time the executive committee has been thrashing
out a plan for the erection of two halls for men.    It is now
proposed to erect these buildings under the Act of the Legis-
lature in Chapter 64 of the Acts of 1928.    The Security Trust
Company has indicated its willingness to provide the funds and
to make a contract with the Combs Lumber Company for the erec-
tion of the buildings.   The plans have been prepared by the Uni-
versity architects.

     I have to report also that the Dians for the Dairy Products
Building and the Educational Building are completed and ready
for advertisement.   Authority should be given at today's meet-
ing to call for bids so these buildings clay be pushed along as
rapidly as possible.



     During the year the Department of Building and Grounds has
found it necessary to ma'ke repairs and to extend underground
connec'ions for water, sewer and light lines.  Such connections
for new buildings have necessitated a considerable expenditure.

     I have also to report that the Dlans for the new library
are progressing and conferences have been held with some of the
leaeing librarians of the greater institutions, notably Mr.
Bishop of the University of Michigan.   A more definite report
will be made in the near future.

     Attendance of St-udents.  The attendance of students in
residence during the first semester of this year amounted to
2456.  This number does not include 220 men and women taking
work in evening classes offered on the campus.   In all the
colleges of the State there are approximately 10000 students
in attendance.  Of this number 24.7% go to the University of
Kentucky.   I make this statement because it shows the relative
importance of the University in meeting the needs of the State
in `the field of higher education.

     Publications. For several years the University has issued
from ,he Law College a high class journal which is issued quar-
Qerly.  It also -publishes from the College of Education the
High School Quarterly, and the Experiment Station and Division
of Agricultural Extansion issue a large number of pamphlets upon
the results ofL research and 'he application of agricultural and
home economics demonstrations to she problems of the State.
A new periodical was started a year ago, called "Letters".
This is a literary publication under the direction of the De-
partmentu of English and published in cooperation with the De-
partment of Journalism and the student paper, The Kernel.
This periodical has taken a high place in university publica-
'.ions and is well edited by Professor E. F. Farquhar.

    The students through the Department of Journalism issue a
weekly newspaper called The Kentucky Kernel.   The results are
highly creditable t- the editors and the paper has a high place
among college periodicals of the country.

    in addition to these publications the University publishes
a series of monographs and bulletin$.   Tle monographs are
special studies of state problems. f.l-ey are the result of care-
ful research and scholarship and should prove very valuable to
the people of the State of Kentucky.

    Establishment of Bureaus.   Last year two new bureaus were
establi.shed at the University, one in the College of Education
and one in the Collegc of Commerce.   The bureau in the Qollee-
of Education is called the Bureau of School Service.    It is
under the direction of Professor F. W. Reeves.   This bureau
is engagd in investigations in the field of public education



It has already a~cco- .i'lished sormie notQable things in -the service
of a nurndber of sch-ools and colleges,

    The Bureau of Business Research in t-he College of Com-merce
is carried on under the direction of an advisory council. The

                  Prizes and Championships

    The University of Kentucky has been represented for a number
of years through the Agricultural Experiment Station at the
International Live Stock Exposition held annually at Chicago.
This year prizes and championships won were notable, and for
the information of the board I am including a statement of what
they are:

         Southdown wether lambs, first, fourth and fifth.
         Pen of Southdown wether lambs, first,
         Champion Southdown wether.
         Shropshire wether lamb, first.
         Champion Shropshire wether.
         Hampshire yearling wether, fourth.
         Pen of Harapshire wetheT lambs, second.
         Cheviot yearling wethers, first, second and third.

         prize senior calf.

    When the sim-all number of sheep and s tock that t-he Univer-
sitr owns . is taken into consideration the accomplishments of
'The S tatGion in breeding and :oreparing animals for the show
are unusually notable.

   University Publicity.   In the long run -the reputation of
an institution depends unon t1he work which it is doing.  At
the sa;me timle, in these modern days it is necessary to get to
,,he oeople of the Commonwealth informat.ion about the things
whichi are haappening in te University.  The University has
not had adequate publicity in regard to what the State needs
tso know about the University a.nd particularly what will build
up a larger confidence in -he instlitution.  This does not- mean
.hat no publicity has been given to bhe University; for instance,
the Progress Magazine maintained by the Progress Conmission has
given considerable publicity to the University and 'the work it
is doing.   But There should be a continuous publicity and to
that end a bureau should be established which would keep a con-
stant flood of publici ty flowing fromn the institution.  I am,
therefore, recormmending at this meeting that such a bureau be

    The Louisville Times and Courier Journal have invited -the
Universit, - to present a program from their radio station on
December 19, and the University has accepted with thanks for
the opportunity.

    From ti.-me to time requests and someti-mres demands are made
uoon -hLe University to advertise in various periodicals.  This
type of advertising is not. particularly effective and t-he Uni-
versity engages in it largely as a matter of assisting the
various organizations that support these periodicals.

    Restoration of the Peabody Fund.   About 1908 the Universi-
ty of Ken-tucky recei`ved-$40000 from the Peabody Educational
Fund.   This money was used. for t-he construction of -t-he Educa-
tional Building on tvhe campus.  In the survey of the University,
made in 1917, a criticism of the oolicy of the University in
the use of tJhis fund appears.  The Board of Trustees restorqd
the fund and purchased t40000 worth of United States bonds in
1918.   There- was owing $26000 c... this purchase, but I a.n glad
to report that the Business Ageni. 'L :C. the remaining amoint
so t'hlat the fund stands intact toc .

    Purchase of Land at _r"rcen.      This stcatiorn at Prince on
Is a valua'ble addition to Tjnsc  ivers` ty a_ .;tvities and it a.-&ooeared
c'istinctly advantageous to add lar.d at this place.  Consequent-
ly, fifty acres of land, co .m.prising -.-,he Luttlell iarm. and



a strip of land 190 feet wide which completes the boundary of
the University farm were added.   The purchase price was
$12500, $6500 of which has been paid out of accumulated funds.
The remaining amount will be paid in the next three years from
earnings of the farm.

    Organ for lllemorial BuileingE  In constructing `lhe Nemorial
Builfin, space was provTided for a pipe organ.   The building
will not be complete without such an instrument, so the Exe-
cutive Committee some time ago authorized, its purchase.
Lett'ers have been sent to Various builders throughout the
country and six proposals have been received.    I have talked
with many o-f the reOresen tfatives and visited one of the fac-
tories.   These ,)roposals have been analyzed and turned over
for further consideration to an excertv who will advise the
University as to the best instrument.    I hope to have a
recommendation to make at the next meeting of the committee.

    Action of Students on Prohibition.   One of the most iriF
cor-vant, things that has happened at the University in a long
time is the determination of the Men's Student Council to
enforce the University's regulations regarding drinking. This
resolution has been suported by the leading organizations
on tlhe campus, notably the 0. D. K,, Scabbard and Blade and
the Council of the Men's Dormitory.    Result s have already been
obtained through the action of the council.    In doing this
thing the students of -.he University have shown courage andl a
fine sense of honor.   The press throughout the country has
hailed it as the most important step taken in dealing with
student drinking, and I am'glad to report to the Board of
Trustees thlat I am much pleased with this forward-looking ac-
t ion.

    3. Report of Fire Inseector.    President McVey reported
to tihe Board that the city fire inspector had sent to his
office a digest of regulations required by law as affecting
the Uliversity Gymnasium.   After brief discussion concerning
expenditures necessary to be made to meet requirements of the
fire inspector's demands, Mr. Stoll moved that the matter be
turned over to the superintendent of buildings and grounds
with instruction to report back to this board at a future date
the R-pproximate cost of putting into effect the regulations
insisted upon by -he city fire inspector.    Mr. Stoll suggested
this sten so that opportunity mightA be bad to discuss with
the Athletic Council its proposal ; put in 1800 new seats on
the basket ball floor with the view that these seats be in-
stalled in accordance with the fire inspector's demands.

    4. Candidates for Degrees.   The following list of candi-
dates for degrees to be conferred upon students completing
their work at the end of the current semester was submitted
and, upon motion duly seconded and carried, the board approved



the list and ordered it spread upon the minutes.

                                Re: Memorial Hall
     Gentlemen:                      University of Kentucky

     We have the contract on the above job for the cut
     stone work, and we wish to officially advise you
     that in the events we are not paid by the general
     contractor, J. T. Jackson Lbr. Company, for this
     work, we will look to you for payment.
     We do not anticipate any difficulty in getting our
     money, but are taking advantage -of our legal privi-
     lege by giving you official notice that we will
     look to you for our money in the event we do not
     receive any part of it from the general contractor.
     This is absolutely no reflection on the J. T. Jackson
     Luamber Company, the general contractors, but is a
     privilege granted all labor and material men on jobs
     they serve.

     Yours very truly,


     By G. E. Wilder
