Gentl emen2

     You have been called in special session today for the
purpose of considering, tentatively, at least, the budget
for next year. This will be submitted to you by Auditor of
Accounts and the Business Agent, and explained.

     Since our last meeting. we have had the misfortune to
lose by death, Mr. Calvin Lenaghan, who, as you remember.
was in the Business Office. A more faithful. upright, con-
scientious servant he institution ever had, and his loss
will be keenly felt by the 3usiness Department of the Univer-

     We have also in the interim, as you know, had a session
of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
that body passed two acts concerning the University: one, to
increase the 6sbmbetship of the Board of Trustees by giving
the ,.lumni representation on the Board; the first electioh
under this act to take place next Decembox; the other was to
require us to fis Cor accounts with the Auditor of Public
Aacounts each month, and if found lawful  he is to give us
a check for the sum total, and also, to make us an advance
of terlper cent to be kept in bank in Lexington to meet our
petty cash needs.

     In addition to the budget, there will be several minor
matters which I Will bring before you and which need not be
set down here with particularity. The University Is in a
prosperous condition, and , so far as I know and believe, its
being conducted in a most successful manner according to our
mean s.

                            Very respectfully submitted,

President H. S. Barker,
  State University.


Dear Sir:

     Since the beginning of school in September, I have
collected about $160 in locker fees. A Dart of this money is
for steel lockers at $L.00 a year not refunded. A part is for
wooden lockers at $1.00 a year with fifty cents refunded at
the end of the year, provided that the locker is in good
condition. There will be left at the end of the yearabout
$135.  I ask that I may spend a part of this money in the
following way:

     $70 for twenty steel lockers which are badly needed.

     $25 to ray for medals and incidental cost of putting
on the exhibition of the gymnasium work early in April.
his exhibition to be public and the work to be character-
istic of the work done during the year.   In order to made the
exhibition more interesting, I would like to offer medals
for those who perform best.

     Two accidents have occurred in the gymnasium through
no fault of anyone.  At the time of the accidents medical
attention was needed at once.   I could not, get in touch with
Dr. Pryor and was obliged to call another physician; Dr.
Scott took care of these two men and has rendered at bill
of $25 for his services, which I think we ought to pay.
I would ask that the above amount be spent as indicated.
The remaining sum to be disposed of in any way suggested.

                             Very respectfully,

                                  Alpha Brumage,
                                  Head of the Department of
                                    Physical culture.

     On motion made, seconded and unanimously carried, the
recommendations of Mr. Brumage were adopted, and the $15 re-
maining were ordered paid into the University Treasury.

     At this point  Mr. Davies reported that the Voucher
System had not been put into use for the reason that the
bill of the legislature providing for the new accounting
system might change our plan of payment and that it would not
be advisable to adopt the plrn until it was seen what would
be required in the report to be made monthly to the Auditor.

     On motion the Committee then adjourned to meet on
Thursday, April seecond.
