Business Agent waa directed to take proper steps for collection

     6, Audit of Business Office Accounts.

     President McVey referred to the question of' annual audit of
Business Office accounts,   The Business Agent stated that under
the state law the books may not be closed until September 30X
1936,   It having been suggested at a previous meeting of the
Board of Trustees that Kentucky accountants be given an opportunity
to consider making the audit and to bid thereon, it was decided
that the matter be called to the attention of Lexington, Louisville,
and other accounting concerns by members of the Committee and the
Business Agent.   Further action was deferred to the September
meeting of the Board of Trustees.

     7. Student Deposits.

     President MoVey presented a statement by the Business Agent
in which he stated that the operation of the General Deposit plan
had not proved as satisfactory as was contemplated.    The members
present were not willing to authorize return to the system of
special deposits, stating that such system would be too great a
burden on many students,   However, on motion and second, it was


ordered that a room deposit of $5.00 may be required of applicants
for residence in the residence halls, this  to be in addition to
the general deposit of $6.00 to be required of each student regis-
tering for eight or more hours.

         Sundr  Ledger Accounts: Revolvn, Trust and Federal Flluds.

     On motion, duly seconded and carried, it was ordered that all
orders of the Board of Trustees and Executive Committee hereto-
fore made and recorded in the Minutes, relative to Sundry Ledger
accounts, Revolving, Trust and Federal Funds, be reaffirmed and ap-
proved,   This order is to apply especially to the order made by
the Executive Committee at meeting of June 30, 1934, Sec. 10, and
to the order made by the Exeoutive Committee at meeting of October
23, 1934, See, 7,   It was further ordered that the amount collect-
ed for post office box rental be classed as a student activity col-
lection, to be credited for each fee for eight or more hours,    It
was further ordered that a student activity fee of 50 cents be de-
ducted from each summer school fee, this latter to be used for the
purpose of providing lectures and entertainment for summer school

     9, Uncollected Student Fees.

     The Business Agent made the following report;

         I have had checked the unpaid fees for the year 1935-
     1036.   The total amount for the first semester is
     $1,241.18; the total amQunt for the second semester is
     $2,732.12, making grand total of $3,973.30,    Of this
     amount approximately $l,0OO.00 is due to the NYA.
     The total amount of fees collected for the year was
     .232,425,50  That makes the unpaid amount.0l1  per
     cent of the amount of paid fees,

          Part of these fees will be collected this year
     so that I think the percentage will be reduced possibly
     to one per cent.   It Is my opinion that the above
     amount of unpaid f ees should be charged of' and not
     carried as an asset,

     It was ordered that all unpaid student f ees and $tudent ac-
counts for fiscal year ending June 30, 1936, be charged off and
not carried as assets on the books of the Bustnews Office,

     problem of Insurance on University property and I sub-
     mit herewith the blanks that the department has sent us,
     showing what insurance has been placed on buildings and
     contents.   The amount br Experiment Station and College
     combined is $l6,789.45), Eperiment Statiorn being $3,605.29
     and College being 813,184.16,

    has had the excess of insurance over $200,O00 on any
    one building insured In old line companieQ, the cost
    of which is included In the above.

          Klair and $crtt has written part of the insurance
     on the dormitories and another company has been given
     $15,000.0 of this insurance.    The bill of Klair and
     Scott Is 8194.l14,  1hile I do not have bill from the
     other company, according to Klair and Scott's charges,
     this should be approximately $12.00.

    Service Building, bill for which I am submitting amount-
    ing to 8634.U0

    11, Sales Tax -   ot    licable to  ducatlonal Institutions.

    The Business Agent reported that he had received the commun-r
loation that follows regarding tax on certain sales,    He stated,
however, that In a letter to Mr. James Atiorris, manager of the
Ganpus Book Store, that the ruling in the letter seems to have
been qualified so as to apply only to sales maae during the
service of meals.

                                         June 23, 1936

     W, D. H. Peak
     Business Agent
     University of Kentucky

     Dear Mr. Peak:*
                    We have just completed a conference
     with the Attorney Greneral, as a result of which we
     are ruling that sales of oommodities subject to tax
     under House Bill 5D of the   xtraordinary Revenue Ses-
     sion are not subject to tax if made by an educational
     or charitable Institution.



                    The fact that the Commons and High
     School Cafeteria is operated by the University would
     render it exempt,

     12, New State Financial Cohttrol,

     Report of Business Agent:

          The Business Office is endeavoring to adjust its
     accounting to the new financial system of the state,
     The new system seems right in theory but changes may
     have to be made in actual practice,
          All purchases must be mnde through the State Divi-
     sion of Purchases.   This is causing some difficulty
     and delay, due largely to the necessary reorganization
     of that office,

          It is proposed that the State Treasurer make checks
     for all salaries and all bills of the University,   The
     salary checks have been made In this way for the first
     summer school,   On the whole, it is causing considerable
     difficulty, but it is expected that difficulties will
     disappear as $tate and University employees become
     familiar with the system,

     20, Grou Insurance Committee Report.

     Dean Edward Wiest, Chairman, made annual report of Group In-
surance committee.      This report has been printed and is ready f'r
distribution.     The following excerpt was ordered inserted in the
minu tes %


To the Employees of the
University of Kentucky:

     The Group Insurance Committee submits below Its
Fourth Annual Report covering the status of our group
insurance system. for the fiscal year ending May 31,
1936.  The Group is insured by the Prudential Insur-
ance Company and has been operating since June 1, 1932,

                EXPERIENCE RECORD

     MIortality and disability claims paid from the time the
Group was organized to the present have been as followsz

     Year              No. of Claims         Amount of Claims
  1932-33                                           00                       5
  1933-1S34                 4                  $8,000
  1934-1935                 3                   3,000
  1935-1936                 3                   3,500

     The growth of the Group as shown by the number of
lives insured and the amount of insurance in effect at
the close of each fiscal year is as follows:

    Year               No, Insured           Amount of Insur-
   1932-33                575                  1,-003,500
   1933s-34               591                  1,060,000
   1934-35                649                  1,158,500
   1935-36                744                  1,983,500


     The premium rate continues for the present at eighty-
four cents per month per $1,000 of insurance.  This rate
resulted in the payment by the University during the last
fiscal year of a total aggregate premium of $11,390.56 and
in the payment of a dividend by the Prudential Insurance
Company to the group amounting to $5,686.63,   As already
stated, the Company also paid us mortality claims amounting
to 8Y,500,   The dividend payable to the Group Is the
amount that remains after a sum sufficient to meet reserve
requirementst administrative expenses, and mortality claims,
Is deducted from the total aggregate premium.

     The Oommittee declide  to assign $350 of the group
dividend to the General Contingency Fund and to use the
remainder in paying a portion, of, the premiums during the
eight months from October to May inclusive.   This means
that for those who have been In the group for a year the
regular rate of 84 cents will be reduced to 52 cents
resulting in a net premium rate of 32 Cents per $1,000
per month from October to May inclusive.   For those who
have been In the group for a shorter period than a year,
the premium reduction will be proportionately less




          The General Contingency Fund is being accumulated
     gradually out of relatively small portions of the annual
     dividend received from the Company,   The sums so set
     aside during the past tour years are as follows:

                1932-33 ---- $733.82
                1933-34 --              --       IS
                1934r35             -----    365,64
                1935-36 -- 360.00
          The purpose of this fund Is two-fold,   First, It Is
     drawn upon to meet any administrative expenses that have
     to be incurred by the Committee,   Second, It can serve
     to equalize dividends and stabilize the average gross premiAum
     rate in periods of emergency.

          The balance of the Fund at the close of the present
     fiscal year, as shown below is S1,837.62 but a correct
     statement of the balance requires a deduction of the cost
     of printing this report, because this is an expense
     properly chargeable to the fiseal year, 193b-36,    The
     fund will be invested In approved bonds.


           The following statement shows the expenses paid out
     of the General Contingency Fund during the fiscal year,
     193541936, and the amount of the Fund at the close of
     the year:

     President MoVey stated that he had appointed a committee to
make plans for the Summer Session of' 1937, a change from two
sessions of five weeks each to one session of eint weeks being
contemplated,   The comittee, by its chairman, Dean Boyd, made
report of Its action at meeting of July 3, 1936,    The appoint-
ment of the committee was approved, and the President was author-
ized to act on approval of the committee's suggestions,



      22. Advertisin=,

      President McVey brought up the question of advertising in
papers, publications, etc,, stating that it has been his policy
to avoid it but that in some instances circumstances arise that
make avoidance difficult,   The value of such advertising was
questioned by the Committee members.   The question for the present,
however, was left to the President's judgment.

     Dear President McVey:

          The lease on the property at 162 Bonnie Brae
     Avenue which is occupied as a home management house
     expires July 31, 1936.   I recommend that It be
     re-leased from rs. May K. Duncan, the owner, for the
     period of one year, namely August 1, 1936 to July
     31,, 1937, at a rental of $60 per month.  The item
     for this is provided in the budget of Home Economics
     teaching division of the College of Agriculture.

                                  (Signed)  Thomas Cooper
                                            Dean and Director,

     Dean Cooper was authorized to renew the lease.

     24, City Street ajiht of Way over Exeiment Station Farm,

     No action was taken Inasmuch as the matter was closed as
shown by the following memorandum:

     President'8s Jemorandum*


          Memorandum relating to the inquiry made by Com-
     missioner James J. O'Brien proposing a right-of-way
     through University property from Rose Street to the
     Tate's Creek Pike.

          I made an appointment to see Commissioner James
     J. O'Brien at 10 o'clock on Wednesday morning, June
     24.   Dean Cooper went with me.   I stated to Com-
     missioner O'Brien that there was a fundamental princi-
     ple Involved in the request that came from his office.
     It was very important.   This principle is to the ef-
     fect that the taking of Experiment Station property
     for City improvements would result in timt; in the Farm
     being materially reduced and that once this started
     there would be attempts to move the Experiment Station
     and Agriculture College to some other place,   I called
     to the attention of Commissioner O'Brien the fact that
     proposals have been made to build service roads across
     the Experiment Station Farm.

          Dean Cooper indicated the effect upon the property
     as it now stands and the resulting loss of experiments
     carried on the existing lots,

          It is pointed out that a connection between the
     Tates Creek Pike and Limestone Street could be secured
     through Columbia Avenue, and that in the construction
     of this road of approxirtely two blocks, a communicat-
     ing road would be secured to the two parts of the
     City Wt. O'Brien indicated that the matter had
     been brought to his attention and so far as he was con-
     cerned, nothing would be done about it,

                            (Signed)Frank L, McVey

     a. Field House.

     The proposed project for a field house or athletic practice
court prepared by request by Professor D. V. Terrell, the cost
being estimated at from $8,000,Oo to 8l0,000.00 was presented.,
The need, the location, the cost and other features of the enter-
prise were discussed at length,   The oonclusion was thrt funds
not being available to cover costs of oonstructioh, no action
should be taken on the proposed project, at this time.,

     b. Dean Graham's Proposals.

     Applications for following projects proposed by Dean Graham
were authorized and approved

          1, The construction ot a concrete lined trench through
     the entire length of the East Engineering Bullding or machinie
     shop,   This trench Is designed to carrr the return-water
     conduit of the tSteam distribution system", electric oondults



     for this and other buildings, steam lines for this
     building, water and compressed air pipes for the ma-
     chine shop itwelf ,  This trench will be an integral
     part of this east building and if included in contract
     for this building, It would have added at least
     $4,000 to the contract cost.   Our out-of-pocket ma-
     terial expense on this project willbe less than $1,000.

          2, A project for removing present equipment in
     the Wendt Shop and storing same and preparing present
     floor for future use.   No materials necessary,

          3, Laying of electric conduit.   This is the first
     step or leg In the study and reconditioning of the
     electric light and power system of the campus,   The
     Utility Company has agreed to supply the recording
     meter for this proposed system, and we believe the
     plan will afford a considerable saving in power costs.
     This particular part of the general plan is needed
     because of The power requirements of the boiler-
     house of the Central Heating Plant and new buildings
     such as the Student Union, etc,   The out-of-pocket
     cost will be approximately $3,000 mainly for the electric
     cable involved,   To perform this work under contract
     with PW.A. will cost near $10,000,

          4, A project for removing equipment and wrecking
     the West Engineering Building If and when this may be
     desirable. No out-of-pocket expense f'or materials --
     a labor job only.

          You may remember that we negotiated a contribution
     of $5,000 from the College of Agriculture, as part pay-
     ment of cost for extending heating system to the ex-
     perimental farm,   I suggest the use of this fund to
     old In the financing of the materials needed in these
     projects,   Mr. Peak now holds this $6,000 In separate

     c. Superintendent  Crutcher's Proposals.

     Applications for following projects proposed by Superinten-
dent Crutcherx were authorized and approved:

     1. Room 303, Frazee Hall

          (a)Remove old plastered ceiling which Is in danger-
     ous condition and replace with 1II celotex.
          (b)Remove stage and erect 8 x 10 platform on east
     side of room,
          ( tInstall additional Radiation.
          (d) Cut door through wall between rooms 303-A and
            University Materials cost ---------        $16500.



   2. Bxtension of W. P. A. Road and Sidewalk Project,
           They are -prepared  ofur-ns  all .a or ana
           $l500OO. in materials to finish the entire
           road system consisting of 33000 sq. yds.
           The Uirversity's share of Material costs
           would be 81780.00.  If such roads as Euclid
           AVenue Entrance and those around Dairy
           Produlcts Building, Stock Pavilion and Agri-
           cultural Engineering Building are eliminated
           the total area to be paved would be reduced
           to 24000 sq. yds., which lowers University
           Materials Cost to $12*96.00.   I am strongly
           in favor ojohing the entire job now
           while th:e opportunity Is here,   To finish
           the 9000 sq. yds. left off by contract
           would cost $5400.00.

           JAp roved as to 24,000 sq. yds. cost estimated
           at  1296,.00.  Consideration of the remaining
           part of the proposed project was continued).

      3. Service Build.

           (.) Building second floor in present locker room
      to provide more space for new lookers purchased by
      Physical Education Department, to be ready at beginning
      of first semester.
