     (7) Report of the President. The President submitted his
quarterly report in writing to the Board.   The report was as
follows.


     During the last three months the office of the Superintendent
of Buildings and Grounds, a.s well as -my olm, has been busy in
rounding out and completing the Drog:-am begun two years ago. The
edifices occupied by the College of Education and Associated
Schools are finished and the organization of the college is now
located in these buildings.   The equipment authorized in the ap-
propriation of $30,000 by the last Assembly has been purchased
and most of it installed.   It will be seen also, in looking at
these buildings that the area around about has been graded and
seeded and walks put in place, and drives are now being construct-
ed in the rear of the buildings.   Much, however, remains to be
done before the area can be used satisfactorily for the college
and associated schools.   The expense has been heavy a.nd the com-
pletion of the work is now held up by the lack of earth to cover
the present level.   Grading has also been done around about the
men's dormitories, so that the appearance of these grounds has
been much improved.

     The dairy products building authorized by the Legislature
of 1928 is completed and now occupied by the various departments
of the agricultural staff.   The work on the library building
has gone forward rapidly and the contractor reports the building
will be fully completed and ready for occupancy by the last of
March.   This fact anticipates our budget requirements consider-
ably, in that a portion of the cost of constructing the library
was left to the budget of 1931-32.

     The plans for the agricultural engineering building on the
Experiment Station farm have been completed and are presented
to this meeting for consideration.   These plans call for a build-
ing with a frontage of 163 feet, the central portion being two
stories and the remainder one story.   The observatory plans
also, are completed, the original plans being modified to neArly
the amount available for the erect on of this building.   The domne
for this building will cost almost as much as the building itself.
The order for the plans for the dome has., been placed with the
architects, Towner and Sellew.   In making this statement it may
be said that the construction of these buildings completes what
the University has in mind at the Dresent time in the way of
construction.   All surplus funds from University inco-e are mort-
gaged by the construction of the library for at least another year.
However, with the growth of the student body and the new demands
being made upon the University other buildings will be required
in the near future.   I may enumerate for the sake of a memorandum:
a new dormitory for women, a student building to care for the
activities of the student organizations, engineering shops and
recitation buildings, laboratories for so-ime of the sciences, and
a building for the departirent of home economics.   The University
must look forward also, in the near future, to the erection of an




 




15.



armory to take care of the activities of the R. O. T. C. and the
indoor work of athletic teams.

     One other construction matter may be brought to your atten-
tion at this time, and that is the use of the warehouse on South
Limestone Street.   This building has been purchased and the
plans will be presented for its utilization as soon as the depart-
ment of buildings and grounds can Drovide them.   The building
should be used to house the department of buildings and grounds
and to take care of a number of other things.

     In discussing the financial situation of the University with
the Business Agent, he assures me that in his opinion, the income
of the University for this year will be maintained; that the ef-
fect of the drought upon the assessed valuation and the payment
of taxes will not come before next year.   What the situation will
be then no one can tell, but it is likely to improve rather than
get -worse.  As indicated a few minutes ago, the University has
financial obligations that project themselves into the future for
sone time.   These financial obligations are due to the construction
of the library cut of income, the payment of annual amounts, which
in a period of time will amortize the cost of the men's dormito-
ries, Kinkead and Breckinridge Halls, and the purchase of the ware-
house opposite the campus.   In addition to these, advances have
been made from University income on the construction of the Memori-
al Hall and the stadium.   In the case of the Memorial Hall the
Greater Kentucky Fund was expected to cover the cost of its con-
struction, but the erection of the building together with the
organ cost about $47,000 more than the constributions to the fund
and the pledges of the guarantors.   There is also due from the
Greater Kentucky Fund and the Athletic Council approximately
55o,000 on the stadium.  The receipt of these amounts would ma-
terially relieve the University from the financial difficulties
in which it finds itself at the present time.   Meanwhile it will
be necessary to hold expenditures as low as possible this year
and next, in order to meet these financial problems.

     On Saturday afternoon, September 20, 1930, the actual attend-
a.nce at the University was 3,039.  The accompanying chart which
covers the period from. 1915-1930, shows student attendance as
of October lof each year.   It should. be kept in mind that fig-
ures of a given date are more indicative of the differences than
the aggregate figures of a yea.r.  It may be said the s tudent
enrollment irn 1930 is more than three times what it was in 1915,
and the numbeT registered in that time shows an increase of 214
per cent.   In this connection, it may be observed, the increase
in students at the University over last year will amount to 11.5
per cent.   In a time of depression it is a. matter of surprise
to many that the enrollment increases, but the fact is, in periods
of depression students go to college.    This accounts for the in-
crease.   Many of these, however, are badly pressed for fuids to
go on, and the University finds itself forced to furnish employ-
ment and secure a.s much iiel. fro-m friends and the community as
possible to keep the students on.




 




16.



     One of the requirements of the University is that the fresh-
men shall report several days in advance of the regular opening.
This year the students came on Thursday and were carried through
a rather strenuous program.   The purpose of this program is the
orientation of the student to his university.  The program was
satisfactorily carried out this year, due to better leadership
and better arrangements for caring for the students.

     One of the dangers that confront any institution is that of
hardening and routinizing the curriculum.   It is necessary that
the f acuity constantly keep in mind this tendency and as a resalt,
study the curriculum, so that it may be adjusted to the times and
to the student.   For many years we have talked about a personnel
bureau and something has been done in a minor way.   This year the
budget made allowance for an executive secretary, and to provide
opportunities for the students to learn about their own qualifi-
cations and particularly to find out those things that will assist
them not only in their college course but in finding a suitable
career.

     This is the second year of the operation of the new men's
dormitories and for the first time they are completely filled.
The Dean of Women reports that the woment's dormitories are crowded.
The stuident body is more than three hundred larger than last year
and the problem of housing students confronts the University
again.   Whether it is wise to spend mc'e money for more residence
halls for men is a question, but it is practically a necessity
to make additional provisions for housing women students.   Along
with the increasing demands for housing facilities comes the re-
quirement for recreation areas.   The University sooner or later
will have to open new playing fields, not for varsity teams, but
for student recreation activities.   Something has been done in
this direction in providing tennis courts, but fields for base-
ball, football and other sports must be provided in the near fu-
ture.   I have suggested in previous reports that a part of the
Experiment Station farm ooposite the men's dormitories be used
for that purpose.

     Perhaps the most pressing problem which the University has
at the present time is to make   provision for graduate work.
The demands in this field are far beyond anything that could have
been anticipated.   To develop graduate work which the University
ought to undertake there must be more and more adequate provisions
in the way of
