      A. Meeting Opened

      The chairman called the meeting to order at 2:00 p.m. (CDT). The
invocation was pronounced by Mr. William R. Black. After the assistant
secretary reported a quorum present, the meeting was declared officially
open for the conduct of business at 2:02 o'clock.

      B. Minutes Approved

      On motion by Mr. Cooper, seconded by Mr. Crockett and passed, the
reading of the Minutes of the March meeting of the Board of Trustees was
dispensed with and the Minutes were approved as published.

      C. President's Report

      President Singletary presented his monthly report on University
activities and recommended its acceptance. Mr. Clay accepted the report
and it was ordered filed.

      D. Recommendations of the President (PR 2)

      Noting that the only item in PR 2 was a recommendation relative to
personnel changes, President Singletary recommended approval. First asking if



there were any questions on the recommended changes and, there being none,
Mr. Clay called for a motion. The motion to approve PR 2 was made by Mr.
Black, seconded by Mr. Palmer and carried without dissent. (See PR 2 at the
end of the Minutes.)

       E. Supplemental Recommendations of the President (PR 3)

       President Singletary explained that the recommendation in PR 3 relative
to the certification of insurance values was required under the Trust Indentures
securing the University Bond Issues and recommended that the Board members
approve the appraised values on University buildings as recommended in PR 3.

       There being no questions, on motion by Mr. Burlew, seconded by Dr.
Woodyard and carried, the recommendation in PR 3 was approved as presented.
(See PR 3 at the end of the Minutes.)

       F. Honorary Degree Recipients Approved (PR 4)

       President Singletary reported that he had contacted the five persons
recommended as recipients of honorary degrees from the University and that all
five had indicated that they would be able to be present for the conferring of the
degrees if the Board of Trustees approved the recommendation of the Graduate
Faculty and the University Senate.

       Professor Paul Sears moved approval of the awarding of the honorary
degree of Doctor of Letters to Mrs. Elizabeth Hardwick Lowell, the honorary
degree of Doctor of Science to Dr. William R. Willard, and the honorary degree of
Doctor of Laws to Mr. Ivan Jett, Mr. Ervin Nutter, and Mr. Frank Stanley. His
motion was seconded by Mrs. Clark and passed without dissent. (See PR 4 at the
end of the Minutes. )

      G, Center for Real Estate and Land Use Analysis and
Center for Labor Education Established (PR 5)

      At President Singletary's request Dr. Cochran explained the need for the
establishment of the Center for Real Estate and Land Use Analysis and the Center
for Labor Education and recommended Board approval. There being no questions,
on motion by Dr. Woodyard, seconded by Mr. Palmer and passed, the recom-
mendation in PR 5 to establish the two new centers was approved. (See PR 5 at
the end of the Minutes.)

      H. Budget Revisions for 1973-74 Approved (PR 6)

Commenting that the proposed budget revisions were routine, Dr. Singletary



indicated that Dr. Clapp would be happy to answer any questions. There being
none, on motion by Mr. Cooper, seconded by Mrs. Clark and passed, the budget
revisions as given in PR 6 were authorized and approved. (See PR 6 at the end
of the Minutes.)

       I. Graduate Residence Center (PR 7)

       At President Singletary's request Dr. Cochran explained that the recom-
mendation in PR 7 would permit the continuation and extension in scope of the
Graduate Residence Center in Louisville which was approved on an experimental
basis in May 1972. If approved, the continuation of this Center would strengthen
the present cooperative efforts in graduate education between faculties of the
University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville.
       On motion by Mr. Burlew, seconded by Mr. Crockett and passed, the
recommendation relative to the Graduate Residence Center in Louisville was ap-
proved. (See PR 7 at the end of the Minutes.)

       J. Amendment to Governing Regulations Proposed by
Mr. Flegle (TR 1)

      Mr. Flegle presented a recommendation from the Student Senate which
would delete what he termed sexist phrases and words from the Governing Regu-
lations of the University. In presenting the suggested amendment to the Governing
Regulations, he said that it was not the intent of the Student Senate that the
Governing Regulations be reprinted but that the sexist words and phrases should
be deleted as amendments are made in the Regulations.

       Since the Board may not act on a change in the Governing Regulations until
a month has elapsed from the time of presentation, Mr. Clay accepted the pro-
posed amendment for consideration at a later meeting. (See TR 1 at the end of the
Minutes. )

       K. Interim Financial Report (FCR 1)

       Mr. Sturgill, as Chairman of the Finance Committee, said that the Com-
mittee had examined the Interim Financial Report as presented in FCR 1 and
recommended its approval. He so moved and his motion was seconded by Mr.
Palmer with all present voting 'Aye'. (See FCR 1 at the end of the Minutes.)

       L. Exchange of Property (FCR 2)

       After explaining the advantages to the University in the exchange of property
between the University and the Christian Student Fellowship of Lexington, Mr.
Sturgill said the Finance Committee recommended approval of the recommendation



in FCR 2 and he so moved. His motion was seconded by Mr. Black and, without
discussion, passed. (See FCR 2 at the end of the Minutes.)

       M. Acquisition of Property (FCR 3)

       The last piece of property remaining in the triangle between Limestone and
Rose Streets is the Jefferson Davis School property owned by the Fayette County
Board of Education. Mr. Sturgill said the Finance Committee was in agreement on
the desirability of acquiring this property and recommended that the Vice President
for Business Affairs and Treasurer be authorized to purchase it. Mr. Strugill
moved approval of the recommendation in FCR 3. His motion was seconded by Dr.
Woodyard and passed without dissent. (See FCR 3 at the end of the Minutes.)

      N. Revisions in the Student Code Adopted (SCRCR 1)

      Mr. George Griffin, Chairman of the Student Code Revision Committee,
said that the Student Code Revision Committee had met and considered the recom-
mendations of the Advisory Committee on Student Code Revisions transmitted to
the Board Committee with President Singletary's recommendations. The Advisory
Committee sent sixteen recommendations for Code revisions plus five other
supplemental recommendations to the President. President Singletary, after
careful consideration, approved fourteen of the sixteen recommendations without
change and disapproved two of them. The Board Committee considered the Ad-
visory Committee recommendations and the recommendations and comments of
President Singletary. The final report presented to the Board of Trustees for
action, according to Mr. Griffin, concurred with the President's recommendations
with the exception of disapproving a part of one revision and proposing one
additional amendment.

      Since the changes as recommended by the Student Code Revision Committee
had been sent to the members in advance of the meeting and thus the members
were familiar with the proposed revisions, Mr. Griffin moved that the Committee's
report be approved. His motion was seconded by Mr. Crockett.

      Mr. Flegle then moved that the report be amended by the elimination of
Article VI. He said that it was the Student Government's position that the powers
granted to the President in this Article are too vague and overly broad. Mr. Clay
called for a second to Mr. Flegle's motion and, there being none, the amendment
died for lack of a second.

      Mr. Flegle then moved that the Student Code Revision Committee's report
be amended to provide for the elimination of expulsion from the Student Code
(Article I, 1. 57). In support of the amendment Mr. Flegle explained that Dr.
Singletary had approved the Advisory Committee's recommendation for the elimi-
nation of this section but the Student Code Revision Committee had voted to leave



the section in the Code. Mr. Griffin explained that the majority of the Student
Code Revision Committee had felt that it was desirable to retain this option even
though it might never be used. President Singletary said that in previous years
he had supported its retention in the Code but that he now felt that the same result
could be accomplished through the use of dismissal or suspension.

      Mr. Clay called for a second to Mr. Flegle's motion to amend the Student
Code Revision Committee report to provide for the elimination of expulsion from
the Code. Mr. Bell seconded his motion. A roll call vote was taken with the
following results:

       "Ayes": Thomas P. Bell, William R. Black, Stanley Burlew, Mrs.
               Robert 0. Clark, Albert G. Clay, Paul Oberst, Zirl Palmer,
               James Flegle, John R. Woodyard, and Paul. Sears.

       "Nos": Richard E. Cooper, John Crockett, George Griffin, and
               William Sturgill.

      Mr. Flegle's motion for amendment having carried by a ten to four vote,
Mr. Clay then called for a vote on Mr. Griffin's original motion as amended. All
present voting "Aye" the Student Code Revisions were approved to become ef-
fective August 16, 1974.

      0. Mr. Flegle's Last Meeting

      Mr. Flegle said that inasmuch as a new president of Student Government
would take office on May 1, this would be his last meeting as a member of the
Board of Trustees and he wished to express his appreciation for the thoughtful and
receptive manner in which the Board evinced its concern for students on campus
and expressed his gratitude for the help and cooperation which he had received
during his term on the Board. Mr. Clay in turn, expressed for himself and his
fellow members, the pleasure which the Board had had in working with Mr. Flegle
and wished him well in his future endeavors.

      P. Meeting Adjourned

      There being no further business to come before the meeting, on motion duly
made, seconded and carried, the Board adjourned at 2:30 p.m.

                                          Respectfully submitted,

                                          Paul G. Sears, Assistant Secretary
                                          Board of Trustees

(PRs 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, TR 1, FCRs 1, 2, and 3, and SCRCR 1 which follow are
official parts of the Minutes of the meeting. )



                          April 2, 1974


     The first telecast to Appalachia via the June-launched communi-
cations satellite will be July 2, when 1,200 elementary teachers at
15 locations are to be instructed in the teaching of reading.

     The project, underwritten by a $1 million grant from the Appa-
lachian Regional Commission, involves the University in the key
role of developing high quality television courses and seminars to
be telecast via the satellite to ten of the 13 Appalachian states.

     The televised courses are graduate level and focus on the in-
service needs of teachers of reading and career education.

     The initial viewing of the programs will be at various colleges,
junior colleges and high schools in Maryland, West Virginia, New
York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia and North Carolina.

     During the eight-week course session, the teachers occasionally
will meet in Lexington, to discuss the subject matter. They will be
tested after each telecast, and at the end of the course. The pro-
grams were prepared at the University.


     Paul Willis, director of libraries, says a major renovation at
the old King Library building is expected to get underway soon.

     Among changes are a facility on the third floor for the visually
handicapped, larger quarters for the map department, an expanded
Honors Program Room, a reserve room outside the exit in order to
provide extended hours service, copy machines in the vending area,
a public lounge added to the basement, new faculty carrels and a
typing room, and an expended government publications stack area.

     There will be more smoking rooms, and conference/study rooms.
Most vacated areas of the old building, available because of the re-
cent addition, are being designed for student use, Mr. Willis said.

     A televised instructional program developed at the University
currently is being leased by nine other educational institutions in
the U.S., and negotiations are underway for its use by two foreign

     Dr. Paul Owen, director of media services, said the program,
SPSS Computer System, is produced in the UKTV studios in cooperation
with the Computer Center staff and Dr. Michael A. Baer, assistant
professor of political science. It originally was designed to ac-
quaint students with utilization procedures of the Statistical Pack-
age for the Social Scientists.

     The program is distributed by the National Opinion Research
Center at the University of Chicago. Dr. Owen said negotiations
are underway for use of the tapes by the Food and Agriculture
Organization of the United Nations, Rome, Italy, and the University
of Witwatersrand, South Africa.


     Scholarships made available to outstanding graduating high school
seniors by the UK Research Foundation and the Office of Development,
valued at $32,500, recently attracted 32 students to the campus to
compete as finalists, earning that berth after earlier competition
with about twice that number.

     All of the students ranked in the 99th percentile nationally and
scored a 30 or better, based on a 36-point grading system, on the
American College Test.

     Dr. D. R. Reedy, acting dean of undergraduate studies, said all
students in the initial competition were national merit semi-finalists
and finalists. He said the program was begun by the University to
"attract Kentucky's finest students in the hope that their education
in a Kentucky institution will encourage them to remain in the Common-
wealth following their graduation."


     The use of tutors in a new program in three Medical Center col-
leges has been credited with bringing up the grade level of those
students who took part in the program.

     Called Learning Services, and funded by the three colleges and
the Federal government, the program employs graduate students to work
with students in the Colleges of Pharmacy, Allied Health Professions,
and Nursing.

     Phoebe K. Helm, the director, said, "Students who come to us are
in serious need of help and our tutors have done their job well."
She said no student tutored five hours or more in a subject has made
a failing grade.

     The University has been listed by the Academy for Educational
Development, a Washington-based educational consulting firm, as
one of the nation's 59 leading research universities. Criteria for
citation in the current ranking are the awarding of more than 50
doctorate degrees and receipt of more than $10 million in federal
funds for academic science research in 1970-71.

     A spokesman for the Washington firm said the University was
listed in the top category because it awarded 135 doctorate degrees
and received $14 million in federal funds for 1970-71.


     Victor P. Gaines has been named to conduct a study of the
minority student situation on campus. The director of special
student programs in the College of Medicine will serve as special
assistant to President Singletary, and will have three areas of

     He will assess minority student programs, guage attitudes on
the campus that affect minority students, and begin to establish
priorities to improve services and programs in these areas.

     Gaines expects his job to be completed by the end of the sum-
mer, at which time he will return to his duties at the College of
Medicine. The study to be conducted by Mr. Gaines has beEmin the
planning stage for several months.


     Second floor areas of Spindletop Hall which were damaged by a
fire in December, 1972, have been restored and the facility's entire
public area again is open to members and their guests.

     A sterling silver chandelier in the upstairs room where most
of the fire was concentrated has been re-built by a Cincinnati firm,
even though the solder holding the slender arms was melted by the
intense heat. An $80,000 smoke and fire detection system currently
is being installed on all three floors of the building.


     Phi Beta Lambda, an organization for business students, took top
honors in the parliamentary procedures contest recently conducted at
the group's state convention. The team will represent the University
at the national convention in June in San Francisco. Team members
are Steve Hamilton, chairman; Patty Hamilton, vice-chairman; Glenn
Larson, secretary; John Duggins, parliamentarian, and Bob Goderwis,
participating member.

     The Kentucky Criminal Law Information Service, housed in the
Law Library, has expanded its service to the law enforcement and
legal professions, on an experimental basis, to make criminal law
materials instantly available to selected justice officials around
the state.

     Utilizing a Xerox Telecopier, which transmits and receives
copies of documents over a regular telephone line, direct connection
is made to more than a dozen similar units in Frankfort, Richmond,
Harrodsburg, Danville, Winchester and Lexington.

     All offices in the project are maintaining a log to determine
how often the Telecopiers are used, and an assessment will be made
after the trial period of about six weeks. The service is an ex-
tension of services already provided by KCLIS, a project of the
Kentucky Crime Commission and currently in the second year of
operation. The ready-reference service has a staff of two attor-
neys, a librarian, a secretary and part-time student researchers.
They provide information to attorneys, judges and law enforcement


     Civil engineering students at Somerset Community College are in-
volved in a research project, conducted in Letcher county on the
effects of shoit-wall mining, under the direction of the College of
Engineering. The students are supervised by Danny Jasper, instruc-
tor in civil engineering at Somerset.

     Short-wall mining is the process of purposely caving in the mine
shaft, allowing for the removal of a higher percentage of coal. The
students are observing above ground changes.

     A cooperative program with Hazard field coal companies has
initiated a continuing education course in surveying at Hazard Com-
munity College. Presently, 23 employed men are taking the course in
an effort to upgrade their skills and increase their chances for job


     Myra Barker, freshman at Maysville Community College, will re-
present Kentucky at the National Career Development Conference to be
held in Chicago April 28-May 4. She is a candidate for national
president of DECA, Distributive Educational Clubs of America, which
she serves as vice-president of her local chapter.

    Miss Barker scored highest in Kentucky in a test given to aid
in the selection of the national president of DECA.

     The University debate team continued to bring home honors dur-
ing March from speech and debate events.

     The top varsity debate team captured first place in the Mid-
western Invitational Tournament at Butler University, Indianapolis.
Jim Flegle, Bardwell, and Ben Jones, Campbellsville, won a 4-1 de-
cision over Northwestern University's team to claim the championship
trophy. Jones also won the first place speaker's trophy over 96
other debaters, while Flegle took fifth place.

     The debaters took championship trophies in both novice and
varsity debate at an invitational meet on the University of Missouri
campus in St. Louis.  Mary Thomson. Nashville, and Mike Chapman,
Paducah, won the final elimination over a Morehead State University
team on a 2-1 decision.

     First place honors also were brought home from the Florida In-
vitational Debate Tournament, held in Gainesville. Miss Thomson,
and Gil Skillman, Kettering, Ohio, won a 2-1 decision over Catholic
University to claim the championship trophy. They won over 32 teams
representing 27 institutions from 15 states.


     Dean Charles Haywood of the College of Business and Economics,
who also serves as chairman of the Kentucky Council of Economic Ad-
visors, saysthe recently-developed cost index for Lexington and Louis-
ville will be expanded to include a cost study in other Kentucky cities.

     The Council's first report, released two weeks ago, showed that
the cost of a representative group of food items inthe Lexington area
rose by 2.3 per cent in a five-month period dating back to September.

     The report is based on a study initiated a year ago by the Office
of Business Development and Government Services, which is housed in
the College of Business and Economics. Purpose of the study is to
develop a consumer price index comparable to the national index of the
Bureau of Labor Statistics, which does not include any Kentucky cities.

     Dr. Haywood said part of the reason for the food price increases
has been shortage and increase in transportation costs. He said the
country has been going through a series of crises for several months.


     "Wing of Expectation," written by Dr. Kenneth Wright, professor
of music, during the University's 1965 Centennial celebration, is
still being performed. Based on the life of Mary Todd Lincoln, the
opera was presented three times last month at Red Bank, N.J., under
the joint sponsorship of Brookdale Community College and Theatre-8,
