       L. Adoption of Resolution Amending the Resolution Providing for
Community Colleges Educational Buildings Revenue Bonds

       Thereupon, it was pointed out by the administration that, due to the
passage of time, there had been certain changes in the procedures involved by
which the United States of America makes grants and loans in connection with
financing facilities for public higher education, and other changes which make
it advisable for the Resolution adopted on May 6, 1969, which created and
established a new issue of Community Colleges Educational Buildings Revenue
Bonds to be amended. Thereupon, Mr. Hillenmeyer introduced, caused to be
read and moved the immediate adoption of a resolution, the form of which was
presented to the meeting, and is attached to the Minutes at which such reso-
lution was introduced, and the title to which is as follows:

          Buildings Revenue Bonds of the Board of Trustees of the
          University of Kentucky; providing for the issuance from
          time to time of said bonds; providing for the payment of

2.  ALCORN REPORTS ON PLACEMENT SERVICE ACTIVITIES


     James P. Alcorn, Placement Service director, this week pre-
sented a brief summary of Placement Service activities for 1969-
1970. He said the number of students and alumni registering with
the Service was 2,773, with 60,393 vacancies reported by telephone,
letter or brochure. The number of recruiters visiting the campus
was 891 with 6,928 interviews conducted; "however, we had 1,297
students who were unable to see a recruiter due to lack of facili-
ties or the inability of the company to furnish another recruiter."
He said 651 students reported their annual salary to the office,
which totaled $5,361,878, or an average of $823.16 monthly per stu-
dent; 2,122 registrants failed to notify the office of their em-
ployment status. During the year the office produced 6,915 sets
of credentials for the recruiters and mailed 3,557 sets of creden-
tials for students to companies not interviewing on campus. The
GRAD System, a computerized nationwide service for alumni seeking
employment, is available. In 1969-70 the office enrolled 68 alumni
in the GRAD System, resulting in their resumes being referred to
216 employers for job opportunities. During the year the number of
offers for employment declined; however, salaries continued to climb.
At the non-technical undergraduate level, salaries rose 7.5 per cent,
with accounting reflecting the largest increase of 9.9 per cent.

3.   RAP ROOM AT STUDENT CENTER ADDS TO BETTER COMMUNICATIONS

      One way the University is attempting to overcome communications
probLems and make faculty and key administrators more accessible to
students is through a "rap room"--a late night, informal drop-in
center for discussion and assistance held each Thursday, Friday and
Saturday nights in the Student Center. Jon Dalton, director of the
Humai Relations Center, which sponsors the Rap Room, said the idea
grew from an experiment instituted during finals week last spring.
"During times of tension and frustration, such as those experienced
while taking final exams, students need a place where they can un--
wind." And the students do come and they do unwind, he said.

     The Rap Room opens at 10 p.m. and runs until the Student Cen-
ter closed at 2 a.m. In addition to members of the Human Relations
staff, various members of the faculty and administration and the
campus ministers have volunteered their time to serve as monitors
and make sure the building is locked following the session. "We do
not Pretend to serve as counselors for major personal problems,"
Dalton said. "The volunteer staff is instructed to refer any prob-
lems to professionals in the Medical Center or to the appropriate
authorities." Besides faculty and staff members who volunteer their
time on weekends, at least one student volunteer is on duty each
night. If the group is too large for the office, they move into a
lounge area immediately outside the Human Relations office on the
ground floor of the Student Center. "Our group ranges in size from
20 to 50 or even 75 students--depending on the mood of the student
body and whether we have scheduled a special guest," Dalton said.



4.   CLINIC FOR COMMUNICATIVE DISORDERS OPENED AT MED CENTER

     Dr. Vernon L. James, director of the University Center for the
Handicapped, and Walter Lindley, assistant director, have announced
the opening of the Clinic for Communicative Disorders at the Albert B.
Chandler Medical Center. The clinic is funded by the Bureau of Reha-
bilitation Services, Kentucky Department of Education, and the Univer-
sity. Open five days a week, the facility will provide diagnostic
and therapeutic services in the area of audiology and speech pathology
for both children and adults. A complete range of hearing and speech
evaluation and therapy will be provided to both inpatients and out-
patients.   The services of the clinic include hearing aid consulta-
tion, speech reading therapy, special infant and child hearing
evaluation, parent counseling, individual and group speech therapy,
and vocational rehabilitation counseling. Established as a unit of
the University Center for the Handicapped, policies and procedures
of the clinic will be identical to those established by hospital ad-
ministration. Admission to the clinic is on a referral basis. Staff
members include Dr. William Green, director of audiology, Robert A.
Valyo, director of speech pathology, Clive White, rehabilitation
counselor, Gerald Popelka, audiologist, Janie Lynch, speech patholo-
gist, Betsy Runyon, speech pathologist, Carolyn Duckworth, clinic
coordinator, and Janie Ohr, assistant clinic coordinator.

5.  CHANDLER PORTRAIT TO HANG IN MEDICAL CENTER LOBBY

     The Albert B. Chandler Medical Center on October 18 offi-
cialLy received a portrait of the man for whom the facility was
named. On hand for the ceremony in the receiving lobby of Uni-
versity Hospital were the honoree and members of Gov. Chandler's
family, several of his friends, University officials, and repre-
sentatives of the Fayette County Medical Society.  Chandler was
governor in 1956 when the Kentucky General Assembly made its
initial appropriation of $5 million for the establishment of the
Medical Center.

     Groundbreaking was in December, 1957, and dedication of the
Medical Sciences building was in September, 1960. University
Hospital opened two years later and the College of Dentistry
dedication ceremonies were held the same year, in September, 1962.
Total construction cost of the Center was $27,800,000. State funds
provided over $17 million of this amount, with about $10 million
coming from Federal appropriations. Presiding at the portrait
unveiling ceremony was Dr. Francis Massie, a Lexington surgeon now
retired who was among the strongest early advocates for the cre-
ation of the facility and later a member of the committee that
helped the Center become a reality.

     Dr. William R. Willard, vice president for the Medical Center
from mid-1956 until October 1 of this year when he became a special
assistant for health affairs to the University president, traced
the history of the Center. Two students, John R. Allen of the
College of Medicine and Thomas F. Goeke of the College of Dentistry,
also spoke. The artist, Lexington resident Alfred Domene, was in-
troduced. Albert B. Chandler III, grandson of Gov. Chandler, pre-
sided at the unveiling. Eight of the former governor's grandchildren
were on hand for the ceremony. President Singletary accepted the
portrait for the University, and the honoree spoke briefly. A re-
ception followed in the Health Service Lobby. The Chandler portrait
will hang in the hospital's central lobby, on the wall to the left
of the visitor's entrance. Funds for the portrait were contributed
by friends of Gov. Chandler.



6.   LATE CARL TATUM HONORED AT PROFESSIONAL DINNER

     The 10th annual Professional Education Dinner on November 5
featured the first program of the Tatum Lecture Series, honoring
the late Carl Tatum of the College of Education. Sponsored by the
campus chapter of Kappa Delta Ili, education honorary, the new
lecture series is supported by funds from former students and
friends of Dr. ratuni. The spi,,ker was Dr. Arthur W. Combs, Uni-
versity of Florida professor ()I education. His subject was "Can
Education Be Relevant?"

7.  TASK FORCE NAMED TO STUDY COMMUNITY COLLEGES

     Formation of a statewide committee to study the Community
College System was announced on October 14. The committee will
be a "task force of community college people," and it has been
asked to study in depth the organization of the entire system,
the programs which are being and which should be offered, and the
total relationship of the System to the Lexington campus and the
central administration. The task force is made up of the directors
of two colleges, two members of Advisory Boards for individual
colleges, two faculty members from the System and one from the
Lexington campus, and two students. The committee began its work
the same afternoon. The timetable of work will be set by the
committee. It is the President's expectation that the recommenda-
tions of the committee will have a most significant impact on the
future of the community colleges and the entire University.

     The committee wil study the existing organization of the System,
its programs and its policies, and recommend needed changes and im-
provements. It will consult with Dr. Stanley Wall, vice president
for the System, studying administration organization and make recom-
mendations concerning the title of the chief administrative officer
of individual colleges, now known as director. Specific documents
to be evaluated include a policy statement issued in 1964 when the
two-year colleges were put into a Community College System, the
University's Governing Regulations, recommendations of visitation
committees from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools,
and a report of the University's Self-Study Committee on Community
Colleges.

     Dr. Roscoe D. Kelley of Somerset Community College will serve
as chairman. Other members will be: Dr. Charles T. Wethinciton,
director of Maysville Community College; Miss Effie Kemp, instructor
at Paducah; Dr. J. Brooks Major, assistant professor at Hopkinsville;
Alva Howard, president of the Inter-Community College Student Council
and a student at Southeast; Miss Cheryl Rolston, former student at
Prestonsburg now attending the University-Lexington; Dr. E. M. Hammaker,
member of the chemistry faculty on the Lexington campus and chairman
of the Faculty Senate Advisory Committee on Community Colleges; Hecht

9.  BEERS' BOOK TRACES UNIVERSITY'S TEN YEARS IN INDONESIA



     Dr. Howard W. Beers, director of the Center for Developmental
Change, is the editor of a new book, "Indonesia: Resources and
Their Technological Development," just published by the University
Press of Kentucky. Dr. Beers said the book grew from a seminar held
here in 1969 which was "kind of an intellectual celebration by UK of
its 10 years of service in Indonesia, and to bring together available
Indonesian scholars and Americans working in Indonesian programs to
show UK's continuing interest in that country."  Studies in the book
document the status of resource use and prospects for the technolog-
ical development of resources in Indonesia during the early years of
its third decade of independence. The paper on mineral resources is
by Dr. Vincent E. Nelson, professor of geology, and a former student
of Dr. Nelson, when the former was chief of party in Bandung. Orient-
ed to trends in the post-Sukarno period, the papers discuss new ap-
proaches in agricultural development, national biological research
programs, marine resources, geographical knowledge of the Indonesian
archipelago, mineral reserves, problems of malnutrition--especially
in children--medical science and technology, science education,
library resources, the interrelationship of science and technology
and the political culture, and suggestions for economic analysis of
Indonesian potentialities. Proposals made in the volume have con-
tributed significantly to the content of Indonesia's five-year econo-
mic plan; they also indicate possible avenues of approach to the
technological development of Indonesian resources. Dr. Beers, who
also is distinguished professor of rural sociology, was visiting pro-
fessor in the Agricultural University at Bogor, Indonesia, for six
years. A new book written by Dr. Beers, "An American Experience In
Indonesia," will be published in late winter. The book depicts the
work of UK faculty and staff members at Bogor.



10. TV PANEL SHOW DISCUSSES ACADEMIC FREEDOM

     Academic freedom is discussed on a TV panel show produced by the
University Television Center in cooperation with the Public Relations
Department. Moderated by the Rev. Donald Herren, a member of the
Fayette County Board of Education and pastor of Southern Hills Metho-
dist Church, the panel features Dr. A. D. Albright, vice president for
institutional planning; Dr. Garrett Flickinger, newly-appointed ombuds-
man and member of the law faculty; Dr. Rebecca Smith Lee, retired pro-
fessor and former head of the English Department at Texas Christian
University, and Sheryl Snyder, a senior law student and editor of the
Kentucky Law Journal. The program was shown locally on WLEX-TV on
November 7, and will be presented statewide on KETV from 7-7:30 p.m.
next Thursday, November 26. "Academic Freedom: How Far Does It Go?"
explores not only the freedom which the right provides members of the
academic community, but examines the responsibilities which accompany
the right. In addition to academic freedom for the faculty, Dr.
Flickinger, speaking in his role as ombudsman, discusses the area of
academic freedom for students. The news media Elso enters the dis-
cussion, as the panel criticizes the media's insistence on identifying
persons as members of the University faculty--whether they are speak-
ing in their roles as professors or as private citizens. On the other
side of the issue, the panel discusses those persons who "pull rank"
by using their status as University professors to gain space in the
