attention to the Balance Sheet for General Current Funds and the Balance
Sheet for Plant Funds.  The Report having been mailed to members of the
Executive Committee and they being familiar with it, upon motion duly made,
seconded and carried, the Report was received and filed.

       Mr. Peterson submitted a Resolution requested by the Federal Govern-
ment and the Division of Prcperty Utilization evidencing that the Governing
Board of the University accept property under conditions stipulated by the
Civil Defense Organization and Surplus Property Utilization, and that the
person visiting sites of donable surplus property are bona fide authorized
representatives of the University of Kentucky.  Mr. Peterson recommended
that Henry L. Morris, Retired Colonel of the Army, be authorized to repre-
sent the University in the acquisition of federal surplus property.

       The Committee being advised, upon motion duly made, seconded and
carried, the Donee Resolution was approved and authorized put to record.



       D. Contract with Tibbals CoE-pan, Inc., approved.

       Mr. Peterson presented a contract between Tibbals Company, Inc.
Cincinnati, Ohio, and the University of Kentucky Northern Center. He
explained that the Northern Center at Covington is located on a site which
is not adjacent to normal sources of food units and that it seems desirable

to make available to the students and personnel of the Center food and
beverages dispensed through vending machines.  The contract is for a
period of one year and stipulates the amount to be paid to the Northern
Center, based upon sales. The contract may be cancelled upon written
notice thirty days prior to expiration.

       Mr. Peterson recommended that the contract be approved and
executed in behalf of the University. Members of the Committee examined
the contract and, being advised, upon motion duly made, seconded and
carried, the contract was approved and authorized executed.



       E. Permission for the Department of Highways to Locate Tower on
Grounds of Northern Center Approved.

       Mr. Peterson explained that the Department of Highways, State of
Kentucky, had requested permission to erect a radio tower on the property
of the Northern Extension Center in Covington. The Department of
Highways owns and operates a communications radio system consisting of
35 base stations and 565 mobile units.  He explained that base stations are
located in various strategic spots through the State, and one such station
is in the Covington area.  At present, the tower is located in Erlanger, Ky.
This requires a connecting telephone line the length of which is approxinately
eleven miles.  The location of the tower on the property of the Northern
Center in Covington would greatly reduce the length of telephone line and
lessen the cost of operation.  The tower, as indicated, would not exceed
70 feet in height. The installation would be done in such a manner as not
to deface or make unattractive the grounds of the extension center.

       Mr. Peterson stated that he had examined the proposal and was
satisfied that it would not detract from the Northern Extension Center. He
thought the University should cooperate with the Department of Highways
in granting permission to erect a tower as requested.

       Members of the Committee examined the plat of the proposed tower
location and, being advised, upon motion duly made, seconded and carried,
the request was approved and permission granted.



       F. Disposal of Surplus Furniture.

       Mr. Peterson submitted a list of obsolete and broken-down furniture
which had been declared surplus to the needs of the Men' s Residence Halls.
He requested authorization to dispose of this property.

       Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, Mr. Peterson was
authorized to have an auction sale to dispose of the property listed and make
this of record by filing the list with these minutes.

         G. Rose Street Stormr Sewer Easement Granted.

         Mr. Peterson stated the City of Lexington desired to place on Rose
Street a storm sewer from the intersection of Euclid and Rose Streets along
the east fence of Stoll Field. The city would replace existing sidewalk
where damaged and widen the existing sidewalk a distance not less than two
nor more than fourfeet along this area.  The hedge fence involved would
also be replaced.

        Mr. Peterson stated that he felt that this request would not in any
way damage the University property and, in some ways, would work to the
benefit of both the City and the University.  He recommended its approval.
The plat was examined by members of the Committee and.they being advised,
upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the Easement was approved
and authorized granted.



        H. Degrees for January, 1961, Graduates Approved.

        President Dickey submitted a list of candidates for degrees in the
various fields and explained that these people had met all requirements as
