    2. Payment of Outstanding Notes..  President MoVey stated
to the Board that the following represented the outstanding obli-
gations which the University owes: Peabody Fund, $40,000; Notes
due fog Smith Hall, $9,000; McLaughlin Note, $4,500; Mulligan
Mote, w4,750.  The statement was made to-the Board that the
Peabody Note was secured by liberty Bonds.   A motion was made by
Senator Ernst, seconded and adopted, providing that any unexpend-
edt balance of the University's funds at the end of the year be ap-
plied on the outstanding indebtedness other than the Peabody Vote.

     3. Report of the President.   President McVey then made to
the Board the following brief report:

   Gentlemen of the Board of Trustees:

        "In the short time that we have for this meeting I shall
  report briefly on sole of the happenings of the University
  during the past year and indicate some of the points in the
  affairs of the University that ought to be brought before you
  at this time:

        "(a) 1 2Pinancial Situation.    I would call your atten-
   tion to the fact that we are in a better financial situation
   than me have been in a number of years.   During the past
   year we have saved from the University's budget about 025,000
   which will enable us to discharge part of our indebtedness.
   In addition to this we have received approximately $100,100
   from the Bingham Estate as inheritance tax which will be used
   to build a new wing to the Chemistry Building.   We can proba-
   bly also use this to offset any loans that will have to be
   made during the coming fall, thus saving interest.   The archi-
   tects have estimated that it will cost about $200,000 to build
   the kind of Chemistry Building that we ought to build.   Mr.
   W~hipple suggests that about $60,000 can be cut off by not
   building the auditorium portion at the present time.   It is,
   however, necessary to go ahead with the construction of the
   Chemistry Building, because it is the only- hope of our getting
   more room.

        "(b) Memorial Buildiag.   The Executive Committee of the
  Memorial Fund has recommended the erection of a building with
  the money available.   It amounts now to about $135,000.   With
  this amount we can erect an auditorium having a seating capaci-
  +y of not more than 1,800.   Instead of erecting buildings such
  as these are we ought to be erecting buildings that cost half
  a million dollars.   We simply do not have the money to do it,
  however, and at the present time we can merely care for the
  needs at hand.



     '(c) Ra]2airs.  The following report has been received
from Superintendent Nhipple on the cuestion of repairs for
University buildings.   I am submittinp this report in full
as it may be of some interest to you.W

     Annual Report, Department of Buildings and Grounds
                   School Year 1922-1923
                       June 11, 1923

   President F. L. 1;IcVey
        University of Kentucky
             Lexington, -Te ztucky

   My dear President:

        Below is a summary of work done the 1rast year:

        ? 'Constretion.    Underground light and Power In-
   stallation.   This work was started in April.    It has
   been held up from time to time Tor lack of materials.
   The last cable is now here and the work will be com-
   pleted by June 25.   The work consists of underground
   conduits for lighting and power lines and two transform-
   er houses with two banks of transformers.    We buy the
   current as untransformed power at Winslow Street.    We
   save about one-third in the rate per K. W. hour.    This
   saving is approximately $3o000 per year.    The cost of
   the installation is about $90ooo.    It eliminates all
   light and power poles and conduit was placed for tele-
   phones.   The telephone company will probably place their
   cables in the conduit without charge, eliminating all
   poles and overhead wires on the campus.

        Administration Building.   All windows in the chapel
   Were overhauled and sills renewed.    The roof was painted
   and nut in first class condition.    This year halls and
   stairwells will be repainted.    The present paint has been
   on four years.

        Gymnasium Building.   A great dea.l of lebor has been
   put on this building the past year in the way or minor re-
   pairs.   Sash and roof and glass replacement being the
   biggest items.   A new floor in the Armory is the largest
   item for the coming year.

        Old Chemistry BI  din.    Only the necessary small
   ropaiiinz has been done on this building, leaving the
   larger repairing until the building is completely over-
   haulad .



     Neville Hall.   Just the usual small repairs on
roof, windows, and plumbing were made.   The building
should be repainted.   The past year the Dispensary was
     White Hall.   The roof of this building was repaint-
ed.  A sink was placed in the Art Dear rtment on fourth
floor and lockers placed in the fourth floor hall.   Num-
erous minor repairs were made.

     Mechanical Hall.   Repairs were made to both boiler
settings.   A great many roof repairs were made and the
gutters painted.   Lots of sash repairs were made.    This
year the exterior will be repainted.   Trouble with the
heating system is almost inevitable if we have a severe
winter.   The entire building is in bad shape.   A special
appropriation of fifteen to twenty thousand dollars should
be asked for for the rewiring, renewal of heating system,
roof renewals and interior repainting.

     Science Building.   A new laboratory was fitted up on
the second floor for the Department of Physiology.   Furni-
ture collected from other departments was used and the
necessary plumbing installed.   Numerous roof and sash re-
pairs were made.   The building will be reheated this sum-
mer.   The entire building is badly in need of interior

     Mining Building.   Two class rooms and two offices in
this building were repainted the past year.   Some rear-
rangement of museum cases was made.   Minor sash and roof
rem irs were made and gutters painted.    Cabinets were built
for Professor Norwood.   A women's toilet will be installed
this year.

     Observatory.   Roof and floor repairs were made to
this building.

     Hastle Hall.   Numerous sash and plumbing repairs were
made.   Plans are now being made by Coolidge and Shattuck
for addition to this building.

     li.v'irl and PhvsicsBuilding.  The gutters to this
building were repainted.    Sash and plumbing repairs were
kept up.   Professor Webb's and Professor Terrell's offices
were repainted.   This year the exterior will be painted.

     AOricultural Building.   The Agricultural Greenhouse
was reputtied and fainted.    The usual sash and plumbing re-
pairs were made.   Home Economics rooms, and in fact all


rooms in the building need painting.   Another toilet
should be installed for women and the present fixtures
rearranged.   New hot water storage system will be in-
stalled this summer.

     Education Building.   The customary sash, roof and
plumbing repairs were made.   T2here is a tremendous
amount of glass breakage in this building and wanton de-
struction and damag-e .  The boys' toilet was repainted,
all corridor walls cleaned and electrical switches that
had been removed were replaced.   Sets of shelves were
built and placed in the assembly room.    Several bulle-
tin boards were made and placed in the building.    This
year only the general repairs will be made.

     P           Residence.   Only small repairs were
made and a skylight installed in the studio on the third
floor.   This year the exterior will be repainted and
pergola drainage installed.

     Patterson Residence.   A great many small repairs
were made to roof, plumbing and wiring.

     Women's Gvmnasium.   Only minor repairs were made
to this building.   Another year's use is about all that
can be expected from this building.    It is Anything but
satisfa c tory.

     'ibrarv.  The office used by James K. Patterson was
repainted and a newtr lighting fixture installed.  Numer-
ous minor repairs were made.   Iamp posts at the front
entrance will be repaired this yenr and men's toilet re-
arranged and vented.

     e n'D _oritor.     Hot vwater storage tank heater was
installed and metal fly screens bought and installed.

     Patterson Hall.   The recreation room and dining room
were redecorated.   French doors wvere pleced between the
parlor and hall, and parlor and hall repainted.   Window
seats and bookcases were built in the reading room.    A
bath and living room for servants w~as finished off in the
basement.   A tremendous number of small repairs were made
to plumbing, furniture, doors, locks and key fitting.
Tables in the kitchen were recovered with zinc and stove
repaired.   The gutters to the building v.ere repainted and
new donmspouts put on.   The exterior of the building needs
painting and the woodwork above the porch will need replac-
ing in another year.



     Smith Ha1i.   The usual small repairs were made to
porches, heating and plumbing.   Extensive porch repairs
should be made and are, I believe, included in 'Miss
Crane's budget for this year.

     Boyd IHal.   This building was rented last summer.
Stoves were installed, some screens made and a fire es-
cape ladder put up.   It is not a very satisfactory build-

     Grounds.   The grounds are, I believe, in better
shape this year than ever before.   We are adding areas
each year to the mowed space.   Rose Street will be paved
this summer from Maxwell to Euclid and we will got con-
siderable fill without cost if we allow the material dumped
in the low places on the campus.    The city should be com-
pelled to put in a trunk storm sewer where the branch cross-
es the campus.

     Contemplated Construction.   A great deal of planning
has been done on a stadium and basketball building.    The
basketball building Wrill undoubtedly be built this summer.
The stadium,if the Idrive" is successful, should be start-
ed next spring.

     Heat.   The past year was a moderate one on heating
expense.   The Universityv and 'Experiment Station using
1,697 tons.   The coal was very good and we bought it ex-
ceptionally low, at $4.83 per ton.    The contract was let
to the same company again this year at $4.86 per ton.

     General.   Small repairs made up the greater part of
the work this year.   The two carpenters and the plumber
and his helper answering about 2,000 calls.

     Summgr .   ..Everywhere there is need of more money.
All buildings are badly in need of paint both inside and
out.   There should be enough money so that each building
could be painted every three years both inside and out.
Roofs need new flashings and new gutters.

     In cases where the slate is over the old flashings
it means a very expensive job as the slate must be re-
moved.   Until money is available to do the work properly
it means temporary patching and the showing up of leaks
inside the building befors they can be located on the roof.

     Drinking fountains are badly needed.    The Cafeteria
has no space to expand and the present location is bad.
Classroom and laboratory space is all taken,    Increase in



   growth the coming year will tax every building to the
   limit.   I believe that a recitation building, cafe-
   teria or commons, a girls gymnasium and girls dormi-
   tory are the greatest needs.

                                   Very truly yours

                         (Signed) A. 0. Whipple
                                    Supt. Bldg. & Grds.

     "(d) Student Attendance.   The attendance for the pres-
ent year is as follows:

          Registered in regular session .. 1785
          Summer Session .593
          Department of University Exten-
             sion ........ 706

          Short Course in Mining .35
                               Total.       3360

    "During the present year 528 students were admitted to
the freshman class from 151 high schools; 115 students were
admitted from colleges; 115 counties in Kentucky, 25 other
states, and 4 foreign countries are represented this year in
the rseular sessions

     "(e) Housing.   The housing situation for women is the
same as it hns been.   The University hns rented a building
across the street from Patterson Hall where about forty girls
are housed. All told there are about two hundred girls in
LJniyvrsity buildings.  Seve-nty or eighty live in sorority
houses, end the remainder in boarding houses or with rela-
ti Tes.  There are about six hundred women students.     The
thenT s Dormitory will hold one hundred men students and the
rest are living in town.   We shall probably have an enroll-
mernt of 1,900 next reer, and the question that is in my mind
is how are we doinl to house the student body.     The facili-
ties in Lqxington are already being taxed to the limit to be
able to take care of the students now.

     "(.) ThS Facilty.   We are losinz some of our young men
on the faculty this year largely because we are not paying
sufficient salaries.   There is a distressing need for in-
creases in salarieR.   Tie salaries of regular professors
ought to be up to :4,C0O, but the University has not the money
at the present time to do what ought to be done in this direc-



        "tF~.ThM h rowded Situation.  Recently a statement
   anpeared in the press of the State, circulated by the As-
   soc-aied Press, stating that the increase in the staff of
   the University of Kentucky during the past four years has
   been more than four hundred per cent.    The person who pre-
   pared the article evidently had been confused and failed
   to tale proper account of the staff of the Experiment Sta-
   tion.   The increase in the faculty of the University since
   1914 has been forty-one per cent.   The increase in the stu-
   dent body during that period is more than two hundred per
   cent.   The result is that we are crowded to the limit and
   many of the classes are entirely too large for effective

        "(h) General Attitude Toward the University     The Uni-
   versity is rapidly gaining ground in the favor of the State.
   The attitude toward the University is improving and getting
   better all the time and we are making considerable headway."

     4. Vote Qf Thanks to DoctoT IMcVev.  A motion was made by
TIr. Ingels, seconded by Senator Ernst, and unanimously adopted
offering a vote of thanks to President MoVey for the efficient
manner in which he has handled the affairs of the University
during the past year under trying circumstances.

     5. he Organization of the College of Education.     Presi-
dent 'cVey submitted the following plan for the organization of
the College of education:  (1) The course of study shall be four
years in length; (2) The College may issue the following degrees:
B. A, in Education, B. S. in Education, M. A. in Education, and
II. S. in Education; (3) An instructor in Educational PsychologR
is to be designated from the Depertment of Psychology.    The ad-
ministration and conduct of that Department is to remain as at
present; (4) Certification of those in any college who complete
the educational requirements; (5) Combination courses for stu-
d0ents electing work in the College of Education.

     6. Degrees.   A communication was read from the Secretary of
the University CSonate recommending the candidates for degrees.
On motion duly seconded, the degrees recommended were authorized
to be conferred.   The list of degrees was as follows:

                                       June 12, 1923

     7. Insurance.   A communication on the subject of insurance
was read from Mr. Peak, the Business Agent.    His statement was
as follows:

                                      June 12, .1923

   Dr. F rank L. IffcVe y
        University of Kentucky
             Lexington. Kentucky

   Dear Doctor HcVey:

        I submit herewith insurance schedule of college property,
   showing value of buildings to be $1,185,200 and value of con-
   tents to be 1312,200; also schedule of Experiment Station prop-
   erty, showing value of buildings to be $323,500 and value of
   contents to be $93,250.   The total premium for five years on

     9. _hrohas Di Coal.    President McVey reported that the
committee on the purchase of coal had readvertised for bids in
accordance with the instructions of the Executilva Committee at
their last meeting thereby saving $1,400.   The contract was
awarded to the Fayette Coal7 Grain and Feed Company for $4.86 a
ton.   He stated that the M-ountain Dew Coal Company had made a
lower bid, but that an analysis showed that their coal was not as
good.   He presented the following statement from .Ir. Whipple cov-
&Y-ng the point:

                                       JTiune 5, 1923
   President F. L. McVey
        University of Kentucky
             Lexington, Kentucky

  My dear President:

        Below is a tabulated list of bids received for coal for
   the University of Kentucky for the school year 1923-1924:

        'Monroe Warrior-Harlan C $5.12 Per ton        $9,216
        Mathew Addy-Hazard, $2.25 and $3.25 per ton   9,354
        D. 1f. Williams Coal Co., #5, $5.28 per ton   9,504
        Pendelton Coal Co., Beattynville, $5.23        9,414
        Miountain Devw, $4.69 per ton ,                8.442
        Jfinkead Coal Co., Hazard i,4, -4.53 and
                                  $5.03 per ton        8,754
       Fayette Cosl Grain and Feed Co., Hazard #4
                                  $4.86 per ton        8,748

        The iMountain Dew Coal Company has the lowest bid per ton.
  Their analysis is as follows.

       M-oisture 3.39%
       Volatile Matter 37.l13q?.
       Fixed Carbon 55.85:ff-
       Ash 3.6;3E
       Su1rhur .99%
       33. T. U. 14.21;3,

       The Hazard #4 from either Kinkead Coal Company or 'The
  Fayette Coal "rain and Feed Company, is as follows:

       Ash 4.3%,
       B. T. U. l4.854764
       Sulphur .9%
       Moisture .61%
       Volaq t ile a
       Fixed Carbon 60.1%



        On the basis of analysis the Hazard #4 is cheaper than
   the Mountain Dew Coal Company coal.   I looked over coal de-
   livered by the IM~ountain Dew Coal Company to five of the city
   schools and it was not nearly as good in appearance as the
   Hazard #4.   Service and heat value considered, the contract
   should go to the Fayette Coal Grain and Feed Company.

                                 Very truly yours

                       (Signed) A. 0. Whipple
