      The minutes of the faculty were read.

      The report of the committee on the minutes of the
faculty was then read as follows:



                           Lexington, Ky. May 31, '99

To the Honorable Board of Trustees,
  Kentucky A. & M. College.

     Your committee appointed to examine the minutes of the
Faculty of the A. & Li. College begs leave to report that
they approve all the recommendations of the faculty, and
recommend that they be adopted, except in the following

      The recommmendations of the faculty antagonistic to the
annual military encampment are disapproved. lWhile your
committee thinks that it is advisable to have lectures
by the different professors of the college at the accredited
schools, yet your committee would recommend that no appropri-
ation be made for this purpose,  If, however, such lecturers
can be made without an appropriation for this purpose, it
would recommend that the faculty be given power to
give such lectures.

      All recommendations with reference to appropriations
by the faculty are disapproved. We also recommend that in
consideration of his ability and eminent gratifications that
Prof. John H. Neville be given the honorary degree of
Learned Doctor of Laws.

      Your committee would call special attention to the
method proposed by the faculty f or distributing honors at
the college.

      The recommendation as your committee understands
it, is, that the honors be given in each separate department
of the College. This your committee considers an excellent
things and cheerfully recommends it to the Board.


MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,May 31, 1899 - page 236

     All recommendations of the faculty not herein dis-
approved are recommended for adoption.

                 (Signed)         J. B. Marctu
                                   W. F. Peak
                                   R. C. Stoll

      President Patterson moved to amend the report of the
committee by introducing a provision for striking out the
words " Bachelor of Science " in last paragraph on page 217
of the minutes of the faculty and inserting instead " Bachelor
of Agriculture."


      The amended report of the committee on the minutes
of the faculty was then received, approved, and adopted.

      The committee on Internal Expansion reported as follows:

To the Board of Trustees of the State College: -

      The committee on Internal Expansion beg leave to
report, that, upon the call of the chairman of the committee,
they met in the President's rooms in the college building,
on the 10th day of May A. D. 1899, and devoted two days
in the visitation required of them in order to ascertain
the condition of the several departments of the college,
and the committee are glad to be able to say, after a
carefully and laborious investigation made within the time
to which they were unavoidably limited for their work, that,
while they discovered that there is room for improvement
in all of the departments, and that there have been
and are many obstacles in the way of obtaining the best
results in most of them, upon the whole they found a
degree of efficiency and progress which commends the
industry and ability of the heads of the departments and
their assistants.


MIli-UTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,Iayr 31, 1899 - page 237

      1.  The committee found the department of Mathematics
and Astronomy well conducted under Prof. White, its able
and efficient head. But they are impressed with the belief
that there is needed in this department additional assistance
which would enable the head of the department to devote more
attention to the various classes under him. The committee,
therefore recommend that the head of this department be pro-
vided with adequate assistance, in order that he may have
sufficient time to visit and supervise all of the subordinate
classes in his department to the extent that may be

      II. The committee commend the zeal and ability of
Prof. Neville, the head of the department of Greek and Latin
as an instructor in his department. But they entertain the
opinion that the arrangement of his work in his classes is
not the best that, with proper care and skill, could be made,
involving as it does a useless expenditure of both mental and
physical energy. In fact, they find also in some other depart-
ments a failure to classify students as strictly as is contemplated
by the rules and regulations of the college. In view of these
conditions the committee advise that the heads of all of the
departments be required to classify upon actual examination
the students for the courses of study in their several
departments strictly on the lines laid down in the
schedules of studies for Freshmen; Sophomores, Juniors
and Seniors, as published in the catalogue.

      III. The committee are gratified in being able to
vote and report that they found the department of English
and Logic, (Prof. Shackleford) and Mechanical Engineering)
Prof. Anderson) both well conducted and in a satisfactory
condition of efficiency and usefulness. The former depart-
ment however needs books of reference for use in study and
instruction, which the committee advise shall be provided
and kept in charge of the head of the department in his
class room.


MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,May 31, 1899 - page 238-239

The committee also found everything in good shape in the
department of Civil Engineering (Professor Brooks) and that
the work in that department was well and efficiently done.
There is need in this department of the aid of an assistant
for at least two hours a day, which the committee recommend
shall be allowed, and provided for by the employment of
an incumbent of a fellowship.  The committee found that the
work in Electrical Engineering under the charge of Professor
Sturdevant, one of the assistants in the department of
Mechanical Engineering has been so advanced as to render it
expedient to establish for it an independent department,
co-ordinate with the other departments, as soon as suitable
provision therefor can be made by the Board of Trustees.
The committee also found the work of the department of
Geology and Zoology under Prof. Miller, making satisfactory
progress, and they commend the head of the department for
his earnestness and zeal, and for the good results of his

      IV. So far as the Committee was able to examine
into it, they found the work in the department of Botany,
Horticulture and Agriculture, under Prof. Mathews, as
satisfactory as the conditions existing would allow. The
head of this department has manifested commendable diligence
and energy in bringing his classes forward. He has labored,
however, under the disadvantage of being required to divide
his time and labors between the college and the Experiment
Station. As long as this continues the best results in
either department cannot be attained.  The committee there-
fore advise that arrangements be made to enable him to
devote his entire time and energy to the colleges and
that necessary additional equipment be supplied for the
work of this department.


MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,May 31, 1899 - page 239-240

      V. The committee found the department of Modern
Languages under its accomplished head, Prof. WIfernicke, making
good progress. There is a pressing need in this department
of a library of books of reference for the uses of the
students, and of an assistant, and the committee advise
that the sum of $100 be allowed for the purchase of books
of reference, and the assistance of an incumbent of a fellow-
ship be provided for this department.

      VI. The committee regard the Normal Department which
derives benefit and assistance, more or less, from all of
the other departments of the college, as of the greatest
importance and interest, in view of the great benefits result-
ing from its work to the people of the State at large, they
are therefore much pleased to be able to note and report
that they found the work of this department under its
accomplished principal Prof. Roark so systematically and
efficiently conducted, which they are sure must prove of
great value in the education of the teachers of the
Commonwealth. What is most needed is a separate building
for the normal work. The committee, therefore, recommend
that, as soon as the requisite means can be obtained, a
separate building be provided for the accommodation of
this department.

      VIII. The committee found the department of
Anatomy and Physiology, in charge of Professor Pryor, in
admirable shape, and they believe the best results will flow
from the work in this department. They also found that
the work in the department of Physics, under Prof. Pence,
has been done with as much efficiency as the accommodations
for his department would admit of.



     For the want of suitable rooms and accommodations,
for which the head of the department is in no sense
blameworthy, his work has been in great measure hampered
and curtailed. To remedy this want the coyrmmittee advise
that, as soon as the funds at the disposal of the Board of
Trustees will admit/it, additional and suitable accommodations
be provided for this department.

      VIII. The work of the Academy, under Prof. Walter
K. Patterson and his assistants Proffessors Logan, Davis,
and Muncy, continues to be so well done that nothing need
be said about it further than to commend the Principal and
his assistants for their ability and faithfulness in their
work of instruction, and for the firmness and strictness
with which they have complied with the rules and regulations
in doing the work assigned to they.

      IX. The committee found the department of chemistry
under Professor Kastle in a very satisfactory condition
and they experience great pleasure in conmending the head
of this department for his ability and energy in the work
assigned to him. The good results that will follow will,
in the opinion of the committee, be inestimable.

      X. The committee were greatly pleased to find that
good progress has been made in the department of Military
Science, in charge of co-mmandant and Professor, M;Eajor Jones.
There are four companies of cadets, numbering 358 in the
aggregate, and consisting of one battalion. The committee
had the pleasure of witnessing the drill of the battalion
by the commandant and his subordinate officers. They feel
gratified in reporting that perfect harmony prevails
between the commandant and his officers and the rank
and file of the battalion. The friction that appeared in
the early part of the session has happily dissappeared,


MINTJTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEESMay 31, 1899 - page 241-242

which is due the committee believes, in great measure, if
not wholly, to the action of the Board in allowing compensation
to be paid to the subordinate officers of the battalion, and
to the organization and influence of a military committee
among the officers for the purpose of co-operating with
the commandant in his active work and to the change
in officers uniform.

      XI. With regard to the experiment Station in charge
of Director Scovell and the Board of Control, the committee
lound satisfactory conditions existing. The Director concurs
in the suggestion already made respecting the employment of
Professor Mathews of the department of Botany, Horticulture,
and Agriculture. If the arrangement in this regard as
suggested be made, it will then be necessary to employ an
assistant who can devote his whole time to the station work
now assigned to Prof. Mathews, which course the coiL-mittee
advise. The comrmfittee also advise that an assistant be pro-
vided for Professor Garman the Entomologist and Botanist in
the work of the Station, whose duty it shall be to look
after the San Jose 6cale.

      The comrmittee ascertained that the regulations
concerning the reporting of the grades, etc. of students have
not been as strictly'adhered to as the interests of the college
work seem to require, they therefore advise that henceforward
each Professor be required to submit to the Board of Trustees
at its regular meetings the book in which his daily records
are kept, and that the law regarding the records of class
work, merits and demerits, be strictly complied with, and
that such action be taken by the Board in the premises as
may be deemed necessary to bring this about.


MINTJTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,Ylay 31, 1899 - page 242

      In conclusion the comittee were gratified to find
the work in the several departments of the college, upon
the whole, in so good a condition as it seems to the
committee to be.

      And yet, they were deeply impressed with the necessity
of enlarged accommodations for most of the departments, This,
of course, means more money, and suggests the necessity of
an urgent appeal to the next Legislature for the necessary
funds to provide the buildings required.

      The committee on the President's report submitted
the following:

      To the Board of Trustees A. & M. College.

         We your committee on the President's report beg
leave to make the following report.

      1. As the arrangement authorized by the Board in
June 1898 for the management of the mess at the dormitory
has not proven satisfactory; we would recommend that all
students shall have the privilege of making the best
arrangements they can for meals or board in quarters of
their own selection adjacent to the college, or if this
cannot be done satisfactorily that they may have the use
of the kitchen, dining room, and fixtures in the dormitory
in such Mess arrangement as they may desire subject to the
supervision and recommendations of the President.


MINITUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,May 31, 1899 - page 243-244

      2. As to the military department we endorse the
recommendations of the President as the best possible arrange-
ment that can be made.

the Deans of the several courses of study be required to
organize their classes in strict conformity with the hours
of recitation published in the schedules of courses in the

instructors be required to conform strictly to the orders
of the Board in making their reports to the President of
the College and to the parents and guardians of the
students, and that they each be required to present to
the Board at its regular meetings the book or books in
which the daily records are kept, setting forth not weekly
or monthly summaries, but daily records of work done,
necessary allowance being made in the case of lectures
and laboratory classes.

      The reading of the minutes of the Board of Control

      The following was submitted:

                                  Lexington, Ky. May 31, 1899.

To the Honorable Board of Trustees:
         Kentucky A. and IM. College:

      Your committee on the Experiment Station begs leave
to report that we have consulted with Director Scovell and
investigated the condition of the Station. We fLind it to
be prosperous and everything running smoothly and

      The additional land purchased is well adopted to the
purpose for which the Station will use it, and we consider
it fortunate for the Station to get hold of it at such
a reasonable price. Improvements are bing made on it, such
as fencing, repairs of houses, etc. which we approve.

      The recommendations of the Director meet with our
approval and we ask their adoption by the Board as follows:

      First, That the $15000 from the Hatch Act and the
income from the fertilizer control, the pure food law, and



the farm account and the interest accruing from these
accounts, be appropriated for the use of the Station.

      Second. That authority be given the Director to employ
two additional assistant chemists, at the rate of $50.00
per month, such compensation to be paid out of the funds
of the fertilizer or food law as their work might determine,
their duties to be assigned by the Director, and the employment
of either or both to terminate at any time during the year,
if for any reason their services are not needed.

      Under the operations of the new fertilizer law and
the pure food law, the work in the laboratory has accumulated
so that immediate relief is necessary. The Director is of
the opinion that the employment of two assistant chemists,
as stated above, with the additional help which he has se-
cured for the vacation will enable him to keep the chemical
work well in hand. He recommends in his report that Mr. IN.
H. Scherffius be given the first place and that Mr. W. A.
Beatty be given the second. Mr. Scherffius is already
trained in the duties  that will fall upon him.   He is one
of our graduates this year. Mr. Beatty is a Post Graduate
of this institution and Director Scovell selects him on
the recommendation of Prof. Kastle. We approve these

      Third. We recommend that Prof. Garman be given an
assistant, whose compensation shall not exceed $50.00
per month.
