     Mi.ntes of the IdectinG of the ELxeoutive Committee
     of the Board of Trusteus, University of Kentuc1y,
                      #VP 17, 1918.

     The xcocutive Commnittee of the Board of Trustees of
the University of Kontucky met in regular session, at 11:00
A.M., July 17, 1918, in the office of the President, with
the following members present: R. C. Stoll, Chairman, R. P.
Ernst, P. P. JohnstzJr., and J. M. Elliston.   President
Frank L. McVcoy and Wellington Patrick, Secretary of the
Board, were also present.

     (1) The meeting was called to order by Chairmhan Stoll,
and the minutes of the previous meeting read and approved
as rnodified.  President McVey then made his monthly report
to the Committee.   He stated-that the training of the first
detachment of drafted men had been completed, and that from
a financial standpoint, the University would just about
hold its o;-n; that owing to the fact that work on the bar-
racks had not progressed as rapidly as was expected, the
Kentuc1y Trotting Horse Breeders' Association had agreed to
the extension of the University's contract for the Pair
Grounds for a period of one month.   The Prosident reported
that the building and repair program, as authorized by the
Board, had begun, and that arrangements were being made
for the purchase of equipment for the buildings.; he said
further that the cost of this equipment is likely to run
high owing to the increased cost of materials.

     (2) In his report to the Board the President stated
that the State Treasurer had not transferred to the account
collections of $15 000, and asked What steps should be taken
regarding the matter.   The discussion was to the effect
that Ar. Peak should see the Treasurer and ask for the money.
In event of his failure Mr. Stoll stated that he would see
the State Auditor.

     %3) Regarding the Summor Session, the President said:
"Our Summer Session has done much better than expected.
We have an enrollment of about 160, which is twice the en-
rollment for last year, and the work seems to be progressing
nicely.   Some of the men enrolled in Agricultural Education
under the Sinith-Hughes act have raised the point regarding
the payment of tuitionfor that work, end I shall speak of
this a little later."



     (4) On mctizn by 'Ir. Ernst, seccnded by :Jix. J.;hnston,
the report of the P- esident was app-)rcved as presented.

     (5) The Pras dai-t then stated to the Committee tlh-t
the busi.ess re-L :io2os vovide fi-r an azmnual aud.t of the
University's oc;-s, a. that no au-duitor had been employed
for this year.   Oni ra(tion by Lirz. 2rlnst, seconded by Mtlr.
2llistou, the matter was referred to the President with
the sugestion that a competent firm be enpltuyed tu do the
.work, 1ibich might be able to conitinue the audit frori year to
year.   On vote, the motion was carried.

     (6) Presiden-t .icVey, coutinuinB his report, stated that
in cortormity with the crders 'f the Board at a previous
meetizV, the books uf the B:IqerirL.ent Station and -::tension

     President ?IcVeyt "Gentlemen, you will notice from this
report that Mr. Peak raises the question of carrying certain
items as assets.   Should e  thing be done about it?"

     On motion by air. Ernst, seconded by Mr. Johnstr% the
matter was referred to the auditors mentioned above.

      (8) Thu Yrttor of an official site for Camp Buell was
 then brought up and discussed and disposed of as follows:

     Upon motion of M3r.. Ernst, dh ich was duly seconded and
unanimously carried, thea following preamble and resolution
were adopted:  whereas, on the 3d day of Juie, 1918, the
University of Kentucky cnmtexrd into a contract with the
Committee on Educction and Spoci :;)l Trining, War Depart. nt,
WasshingtQn, D. C., representings the United States Govxia..ent,
the terms of which contract have heretofore 'been approved by
the University; and whereas, it is necessary f or the Uni-
varsity to provide a camp under the tenms of said contract;
and whereas, the University is now having constructed cer-
tain barracks in order to house the men referred to in said
contracts  Nets, therefore, be it resolved, by the Executtive
Coanittee of the University of Kentuckiy, as follows:

     (a)  That tIh ground herein described  is hereby set
apart as a camp f or the soldiers referred to in tha contract
above set out, and that said 6round shall be set apart exclu-
sively for use as a camp, tho said ground being bounded and
described as follows:   Beginning at ai post, being the south-
west corner of Rose Streut aVd .Vinslow Street; thence zrest-
wardly with the south line of Winslhw 310 feet to a cornor;
thence at right angles with Winslow Street and in a south-
armly direction, also parallel with Rose Stroot, 1920 foot
to another corner; thence at right angles with the drove
,line, and in an. easterly direction 310 feet toea carner on
Rose Street;  thanoe wtth the west line cf Rose Street
in a northaruly diretjon :;c  feet to the point of begin-
ning.   There is ex-o.lnad ftcrura the caboare tract the residswnoe
and private yard go be hacap:i.ed by the President of the
University of Xentuckj: and that the said ground herein-
above set out is the only ground of the University whicheshall
be used for said camp,



     (b)  The barracks in said camp will not be completed
until about the first of Septemibnr, z~ud the setting apart of
the ground for said comp shall not become effective until
September 1, 1918, or until the barracks shall ha:ve been
completed and the soldiers shall occupy the said barracks.

     c) The comp shall be kacv m and designated as Camp Buell.

     (9) President ::icvey then r-ported to the Board that
recent plans o She t 'aIr Department will call fo4 the folloving
military org-anization in t'e Institution for the coming year:
(1) A Naval Training Unit; (2) A continuwce cf the R. 0. T. C.
work; (3) .2 reserve corps for men in technical subjects, such
as engineering, agriculture, medicine ad chemistry, and
(4) A Studont Lrmy TraininS Corps, this lattar arrangement
being f or men betwieen the ages of 18 and 21, t o may enlist,
finish their course, and then become c. part of the arq.    The
latter provision, ho said, had led COtain Royden t make two
reccmnmndations:  (1) That the University initiate a three
yoar course for these men, arranging to keep them in school
twelve months in the year; and (2) That in order tlhat proper
military training may be carried out, barracks shm1d be
constructed to aocomrndate the ren.

     r, Stoll:  '11r. President, I believe that the matter of
establishing a three year course is not a matter for the Com-
mittee to consider, but that it falls properly within the
authority of the President to refer to the Faculty or to
handle as seems to him proper.   The point regarding barracks,
goes back to the seme question of vmnoden barracks which the
Board rejected at its meetingi on June 4."

     After discussion, the fbllaving motion wias made by Mr.
Ernst ard seconded by Mr. Elliston: "That the recormndation
of Captain Roydon regarding the vwork of instruction ct stu-
dents ard the erection of barracks be sent to the rnmbors Ct
the Comittee, for consi deration, with the understanding thtt
a definite conclusion will be reached in tihe near future."
On vote, the motion wvas carried.

     (10)  ThDe President then stated to the Committee tin t he
had certain recanmendations to make regarding appointmnts,
transfers, and increases in salaries.   The recommdationo
are listed belG7, and on motion, duly seconded, adopted an

lative to soil needs and demonstrations made of the several
methods of soil building.   The field, he said, is .. rmost
valuable adjunct to the work of the Eperiment Station, and
comprises twenty acres given to the ,,ricultaz-l Exnperi,-ent
Stoation by L1cCracimn, Count-y for thlle purpose of carrying on

     (2a4) The matter of the paynent of fees by students in
the Summer Session who are lcbking,;.7oric provided uader the
Smith-Hutghes act was broug;t up by the President, iwho stated
to the Coimnittee that 't number of men regis tered in Asricul-
tural Bducation have raised the point that since this work is



provided under a specific cpropriation m.d paid for by the
State and Government, fees should not be charged by the Ulin.-
Versity for this course."    The point was raised by Senator
I.icoFarland who intrcLr~cd the bill before the General Assenrbiy
last session.   'ric, point made raises the whole question of
bharging fees at a State University.  The President stated
that he bad called the mfen into his office and dizcussed the
matter with them, trying to show them that the charging of
fees even by an ins itution supported by the state is a matter
of psychology which begets loyalty on the part of the student
body.   He stated he wsas not sure, horever, that they were
convinced to his point of view.   "This point" the President
said, "cuts across the whole problem of modern public edu-

     lar. Stoll: Sol.-e tkle ago there was introduced in the State
Letjisloiture a. bill designed to prevent the charginG of fees in
State institutions, alA the bill was defeated.

     President ikoVey: There is an additional point.   These
fees are used to augment the fVds 6o the University.    1n the
course of a :ear, these fees armouit to soaething like $25,000
and this is quite an item.   The fees are nominal and not bur--
densome to the studexits.

     The following motion was made, duly secorded, oad unani-
mously adopted:   It is the sense of the Committee that fees
should be clrged to students doing Smith-Huges work, as well
as to other students, am. the President is authorized to dis-
pose of the matter accordingly.

     (25) The President -announced to the Committee that he had
made eapplication far the establis4ment cf a branch postoffice
at the University.   He said that the volume of mail sent out
by the Unive rsity wav s growding larger all the time, and that the
problem of supplying mail to the men at Cmup Buell would be
greatly expedited if a branch postoffice cauld be established4
and siree the training of drafted men bids fair to continue
indefinitely, it is desirable to find some means of solving
the pr oblem.

     (26) 4e also announced the t he had under advisement the
matter Of establishing a University store.
