                                         June 13, 1921

     President Frank L. McVey

          University of Kentucky

     Dear Doctor McVey:

           Do you think it advisable to suggest to theoBoard of Trustees
      at the meeting today that the order to transfer from Fertilizer
      Fund to General Tjand, $13,000 on account of amount. aid on bonds
      for purchase of A1lligan property, be changed so that the transfer
      may be made out, of any Dxperiment Station fund from which amount
      is available?




 













     it is my opinion that the General Fund should be charged with
all discounts on State Warrants.   I base this opinion on the
faot that at all times the l3rperiment Station fund has had a ba3
atce in the bank and that the Extension fund has had a balance
practically all the time, the average balance being large.  Do
you think it advisable to take this up wnith the Board of Trustees?

                                   Very truly

                         (Signed) D. R. Peak

    2. Report of the President.  President MeVey then presented to
the Board his quarterly report which was as follows:

                                       J3ne 13, 1921









    Members of the Board of Trustees,
              University of Xentucky,
                   Lexington, aeatucky.

    Gentlemen:

              I have the honor of presenting to you my ahnual report
    in which I shall endeavor to set forth the problems and needs of
    the University.  I am beginning this statement by indicating the
    attendance upon the University.   During the year just closing
    1,259 students were enrolled as candidates for degrees; 1,067
    more were in attendance on summer session, extension courses and
    short courses given during the year making a total of 2,326.
    The staff of the University now numbers 359; 1.5;0 of these are en-
    gaged in instruction, 98 are associated with the ExperimeLt Sta-
    tion and ^.gricultural Extension and the remairin-- consist of home
    demonstration agents, county agents and the clec' al staff.   In
    the student body of the year 108 counties of the -tate were repre-
    sented, 24 different states and 4 foreign oountries.

              The year just closing may be regarded as a sucoessf.ul
    one though it has not been free from difficulties, problems and
    Matters of discipline.   The over crowded conditions of buildings,
    pressure upon the teaching staff and the lack of housing facili-
    ties have complicated the situation.   Neve -,heless, the year may
    be regarded as a satisfactory one from many points of view.   The
    business agent reports that the University will complete the year
    within its budgets   in riew of the finapcial situation, the high
    cost of materials and the uncertainty of cash payments by the States'
    this conclusion of the ye-ar's -work may be regarded as an achieve-
    ment.   The liabilities cf the University oontinue about as before
    with a possibleA, reducyioni of $2zo000.00.  However, it is to be ob-
    served that during Jthe year Smith Hall was purchased and a oonsid-
    erable portion of moiey p.aid upon it.  In addition to this the
    cost of repairi;tg and furnishing the building meant an additional
    outlay o. $10-,000.00 which was not contemplated in the budget of
    the year.

              The teaching staff of the University as stated above
    numbers 150.   A number of resignations have been presented to take
    effect at the close of the year.   These resignations come from

some of the best men and women.  Professor J. 3. Tigert goes to
Washington to become the United States Corirunissioner of Education;
Dr. C. A. Shull has acoepted an appointmenit in the University of
Chicago; Professor G. Li. Baker becomes superinte.oaent of schools
in Fayette County; Dean Josephine Simrall goes T.o Cincinnati as
Dean of Women; Professor M. G. James gives up teaching to take up
farming in Colorado.  The loss of these able members of the staff
is unfortunate.  The question of, salary, however, did not enter
into.the problem of retaining them.   Nevertheless,, it does enter
into the question of securing professors as well trained aad as
capable as those that are leaving us.   In order to secure an in-
struotor who has the masterls degree the Uni versity is called upon
to Pay a salary of about $1,800 and of $2,,530 or more in cases of
Mon who have the doctor's degree.   It should be the policy of the
University to fill its positions with highly trained teachers of
considerable experience and we will preactikcally reach the salary
limit in attempting to do this.   The University is now paying
professors from $3o000 to $3,7500 as against other statAi universi-
ties that are paying from $3,500 to $5,w000.  The result is that
the University of Xentucky vwill be compelled to. acoep' either men
of inadequate training or ycung graduate students who have not haa
any considerable experience. The last alternative is, of course,.
the one that must be accepted.

          The College of Arts and Sciences has grown very rapidly.
It enrolled 654 students during the year.   It carries practically
50% of all of the courses in the professional schools.   The de-
partments are pairtid-ularly orowded with students and find the lack
of recitation rooms and laboratory facilities very difficulb to
meet.   This is particularly true of departments like Romance
Languages, Economics and Sociology, Mathematics, Bacteriology, Art
and Music.

          During the year the Engineering College has enlarged its
equipment under the provision of the act passed 'y the last Legis-
lature.   It now has an excellent shop for wood and metal work0
The college, howeverp- is crowded and needs.additional shops.

          The College of Agrioulture is filled to the doors during
the short course period and has practically little or no facilities
for instruction in agricultural engineering and dairy products.

          The Law School is comfortably housed but it sboud have
material additions to its library.

          All of these needs are more or less apparent to the ob-
server but they make the problem of administration and teaching
muoh more difficult and raise important questions as to the ismedi-
ate future.



          The budget for the coming year is practically the same as
for last year with a small surplus of about $3,000 which is wholly




 







a22



inadequate to take care of the variations in expenditures that oocur
during the University year.  The chances are that in the year 1922-
23 the receipts from the Mill Tax will be smaller than they are this
coming year.  The only outcome is through additional appropriations
on the part of the Legislature.  The income of the University must
be materially increa-ed if it is to meet the needs of the incoming
number of students.

        In:s recent report from the registrar's offioe a statement
is made that about 4;000 students are graduating from the high schools
of the State this year as against 2,600 last year.  As about one-
fifth of the high sohool students are coming to the University as
frewhmen it is more than likely that the freshman class will number
about 700 as against 500 this past year.   Such an increase means
additions to the staff in English, Mathematics,: Chemistry and
Languages.  Some attempt has been made to meet this situation by
adding two instructors to the English department, two to Mathematics
and one in Romaace Languages but it is more than likely that the-se
additions will not be sufficient to take care of the increased n=n.
ber of students.

          The administrative offices of the University are becoming
more and more crowded with wrork.  It is particularly true of the
registrar's office and the business agent.   The particular need in
the registrar's office is that of help and more room, both of which
it seems difficult to supply for the coming year.   Meantime, the
extension work has grown in the department of the University Exten-
sion under the direction of Mr. Patrick.   This work needs addition-
al room'. additional clerical staff and more funds.  The budget for
the University Extension remains about the same this year as it did
1a t.

          In his report for the year, Dean Cooper has presented the
situation in the Experiment Station.   The income of the Station has
fallen off due to the decline in receipts from the Ferrtilizer and
need Control work.  The aggregate loss in this particular will not
be far short of $40,000.   The Station has been usually looked upon
as possessing adequate funds for the amount of work which it is
called upon to do.   Police and regulatory duties 1iave in measure
utilized funds that must be expended in that way.   The State itself
ought to have an increasing amount of research work done in the
field of agriculture to-meet the needs of the farming population.
How this is to be done in the face of decline in income is a problem
that I have not yet been able~ to. solve.  The Station also finds
itself muoh hampered by laok of acreage for the conduct of farm er-
periments.   It would be wise if the Board could look forward to a
material increase in the size of the farm: in the near future.  The
Station has been doing notable work within its limitations and has
no apologies to offer for the results that have been attained in
these lines of work.   It stands high in the opinion of other sta-
tions and is looked upon as having accomplished a great deal.

The Agricultural Extension work has gr- owl ,aterially though the
difficulty in securing trained men and -;omer. has hampered the
progress they would otherwise have made.  The organization of
this vork,. however;, is in better conditV-on than it has ever been
and I think we can look forward confidently to a very great widen-
ing of the scope of the work.

          With the coming of larger groups of students the housing
problem assumes new proportion.  Last year there were 440 girls in
attendance upon the University.  Of this number 154 lived in college
dormitories' 57 in fraternity houses, 135 at home or with relatives
and the remainder were boarding in town   The experiment of dwel2;
iag in sorority houses has not proven satisfaotory.dle to the fact
that the girls were unable to secure houses in the neighborhood of
the University making cooperation difficult in the matter of super-
vision and further due to the fact that the house mothers in these
sorority houses had no university st-atus.  The housing outlook for
next year presents many difficulties.   The lea*-. on Maxwe1 Ra-II
expires in September atnd the owner is asking $1 -o re-rntn' for next
year.   It. will require abeat $500 repairs to put the housl in fair
condition.  Two of the rooms in this buildirng have been condemned
as unfit for sleeping apartments and Dean Simrall advises against
the releasing of the property. ~it will therefore be necessary to
secure by lease or otherwise some additional facilities for the
housing of women.   Under the provision of the law,.; Pat .ersOn 1all
has been placed under a board of control.    his board has rendered
excellent service though the fact that its members consisted of
women who are not connected with the University created some diffi-
culty in handling University problems.   Reorganization of this
board as suggested by the Committee recently will greatly assist
in handling these questions.   The dor:mltory for men is under con-
struct ion and waill probably be reqdy for occupancy about the first
of January.   On the whole the health conditions of the University
have been very sa-eisfactorye .A new department of Hygiene has been
of great assis-rance in Vhe handling of the health problem.  There
have been no en vomics ar~d very few cases of serious illness.
This departrment was estnb-l'ished under an agreement with the Inter-
departmeutalt SOCj~1 Fy-;iene Board.  There were employed as a con-
sequence of the agreement -Three physicians,; with Dr. P. K. Folmes
as hea'd of the dejyar`.te~it.  The department is handicapped by lack
of room and by some faillre to appreciate the need of cooperaticn
on the patrt of oiher departmments with it.  This dilficultyT how
ever, will be remedied during the year.   'Iithouat doubt the depart-
meats of Physical Eduoation need more room and they could cooperate
to a greater dngree that; they do at the present time with the de-
partment of Hygiene.   One of the great needs in this connection is
the need of an infirmary for students who may be L1 -with contagious
diseases.   The hospitals of the city make no pr-  sift forz this
situation.

          During the week of May 16 the University Commission pro-
vided by resolution of the Board of Trustees made its visit to the
Universities of Ohio, Purdue University, the Universities of Wiscon-
sin and Illinois.   The findings of thir Oommission have already been




 







14.



Mede public and are included in this report.  The Commission recom-
mended the need of $8,000,000 for the reconstruction of the Univer-
sity and suggested a substantial increase in the income of the in-
stitution.  The reception of hils report vas most grrvtifing 
From all over the State have come encouraging Corren.flts and other
organizations like Rotary Clubs and the Press Association have
been most satisfactory.  Some 'uestion has arisen, howeverT as to
the method of securing this sum.  Eere and there appear misunder-
standings about the matter, it being suggested that this sum was
to be raised in one year.  Such, however, has not been the purpose
of the Commission.  The two methods suggested are first, a bond
issue and second, annual appropriations for construction over a
period of years.  tI am not in a position to know which of these
two methods is the advisable one to follow.  Certainly the State
with its present income could not make material additions to the
appropriation of the University for building purposes espeoially
in View of the needs of the penal and charitable institutions.
Consequently this Board should give the matter most careful con-
sideration.  The question is bound to arise in the very near
future and some very definite conclusions should be reached re-
garding it.

          The Alumni of the University are being organized more
and more thoroughly under the direction oZ the secretariy of the
Association,- Ir. Nerbert Graham.  There are Low more than a
thousand members of the Association,.and clubs are being organized
in different parts of the country and the State.  This should
bring material increase in the interest in the University.

          The University has reached a very definite turning point
in its history.  It-can not go on farther without increase in
equipment and income.  It will be necessary to determine within
the next year just what policy is to be followed on the part of
the State.   The State can do one of two things.  It can meet
the situation and odequately take care of the increasing number of
students that are bound to come to the University by making pro-
v:'sions for the enlargement of the plallt and increase in equip-
ment.   The second thing that itecan do is to frankly say that the
State CoD. not meet the situation9i thab it cal take care of the
University as ft nww ttands azd it wl.3. be nocessary to limit its
attendance to about 1500 stiluens.-  'This a-bitudap will raise a
number of difficult q   iuescions regarding th;e admiss
