    F  k JL 'NictVey, President,
          U:.iiUersity of Xenrtu.c.y,
               Lexington, Xentucc;

    Dear Dr. IrcVey:

          Judege Stoll advise&' me that the 3xecutive Com-
    m- ttee hP.A approve,9 the settlement of the Basketball
    3uil iap mattor by paayizg all the liens adjudged on
    the buiding withaout i-a;erost, except the lien of
    Aicbsid Shea;       --o 'hi-cn  i e  the Uziversity is to
    patI iatcresL at thle rate o, three per cCnt per an;ium
    from day 25, I-24,    I hav\e, accorO.irigly, prepared
    an order to this end, w.ihich has been anproved by the
    attornetre of all the Darties to the case, with the
    exceptioni o^ the John G. Poole Coiapany, vwhich company
    Cgorever was denied any lien on the   ii 4.ingr and there-
    fore the ap-?roval of the orler bo, its attorney is im-
    material.    s am Aherevwith eaclosing ydtU a copy of the
    o.r-er which sets o-t .the Pm.oun ts to be pa~id to the d if-
    .orent lien holders.   The orll.sr does not, include the
    interest on R.ichari Shea' s ci.im from ;;ay 25, 1924, at
    tha rate of three per zent per ananm, which I calculate
    amounts to $'93.6; vp to. February 5, 1927, the date
    the ordar t ill be enterd.                        best
    for this interest to be covere-. b. a check separate
    from the princi.pal of the claim,   The taxed costs of
    the case amount to   3'72 .7.  The check for the court
    costs shloul6 be mado payable to J. H. Carter, Clerk.
    I think the checkl coveeinei the above claims should be
    made pavrable to the attorneys for the claimants, as
    showin at the ond oT the order,   If you till have.
    those checks  oae Cllt and. sent to me, I v7ili deliver
    the came aud er.tet the orh.einl of the enclosed, order,
    7hich will. t.-eL cloze u-n the case.

                                Yoo.rs very truly,
                                    j. P. Jchrston

     i re ex t inu i alle  The question of installing addi-
       ._ .... _... ngu.las r_ ._....
tional fire extintishers, recom.nended by Mr. Crutcher at
the previcus neeting was taken up .and discussed.    Mr. Peak
appeared before the Coam itte 3 v.1a stated that he ha:^ taken
the satter un r~ith Klair and Scott, Insiira.ce Agents, and
that he had beon advised that the 4nstallation of adrditional
fire extinguishers vrouoLd perhaps not alter the insurance pree



miums paid since to get benefits from it vrould require the
rewriting of the insurance and that the rate would have to
be higher if rewritten regardless of the installation, even
allowing credit granted by the installation of fire extin-
guishers.   It was therefore the concensus of opinion that
the matter shculd be deferred until the present policies
axpire.   ('No specific action vwas taken.)

     So!.i Fertility., Field at Bov;linp- Green.  The question
ot P. soil fertility field at Bowling Graien was discussed,
