    My Dear President McVey:

         We now have $109,501.74 in State Warrants. This ambdnt will
   be increased about $1000,000.00 by the end of the fiscal year,   of
   the total, $30,000.00 will be college funds, $30,000.00 special en-
   gineering equipment funds, $50,000.00 Experiment Station funds and
   the remainder Extension funds to offset Federal Smith-Lever appro-

         These State Warrants can be sold at a discount not greater
   than two per cent. The Henry Clay Fire Insurance Company offers
   to take $75,000.00 or more, and Mr. McDowell says that he will be
   able to find purchasers for the Warrants.
         I am reporting this in order that you may take up the ques-
   tion of discounting the warrants at the meeting of the Board of
   Trustees today, if you think best.,

                                        Very truly yours
