     Minutes of the Meeting of the Executive Committee of the Board
of Trustees, University of Kentucky, January 24, 1947.

     The Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees of the Uni-
versity of Kentucky met in the President's Office at 10t30 a.m., Fri-
day, January 24, 1947. The following members were present: Judge
Richard C. Stoll, Chairman; H. D. Pnlmore, Thomas Cutler and J. C.
Everetti President H. L. Donovan and Comptroller Frank D. Peter-
son, Secretary of the Board of Trustees, were also present.

     A. Approval of Minutes.

     Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the minutes of
the Executive Committee of November 15, 1946, were approved as pub-

     B. Proposed ROTC-Navy Building.

     It was reported that the Navy Department might desire to erect,
on the campus of the University of Kentucky, a building to be used
for the ROTC. The eventuality of such a request was discussed, and
upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, President Donovan was
authorized to confer with the Navy Department, and was given full
power to act on any requests the Navy Department might make of the
University with reference to erecting a building on the campie of
the University of Kentucky, to be used by the ROTC unit.

     C. Report of the Comptroller.

     The Comptroller submitted the regular monthly financial report.
He read a brief analysis and explained the report in detail,

     Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the financial op-
erating report was ordered accepted and filed.

     D. Funds Advanced by Federal Works Agency Ordered Repaid.

     The Comptroller reported that, by authority of the Executive
Committee, an application for advance of funds for plans and speci-
fications of the Fine Arts Building was made to the Federal Works
Agency and approved. Since the date of approval of the application
and the receipt of funds from the Federal Works Agency, the appropri-
ation made by the State for capital outlay purposes has become avail-
able, and it does not now seem necessary to use funds advanced by
the Federal Works Agency.



     It was recommended that the sum of $16,500.00 advanced from
Federal funds for architects' fees for plans and specifications for
the Fine Arts Building be repaid.  It was further explained that
the advance of Federal funds was made without interest and that, if
they were used to pay for plans and specifications for the Fine Arts
Building, it would be necessary to repay the amount so advanced as
soon as construction of the building had begun.

     Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the Comptroller
was authorized and directed to draw a check in the sum of $16,500500,
payable to the Treasurer of the United States, to repay the advance
made for plans and specifications for the Fine Arts Building of the

     E. Perspective of Men's Dormitory No# 5 Received.

     Architect John F. Wilson came before the Executive Committee and
submitted a perspective in color of the new Men's Dormitory No. 5,
that the members of the Executive Committee and administrative of-
ficials might have a better understanding of the proposed Men's
Dormitory.  Mr. Wilson further explained some of the features of
the proposed building and withdrew from the meeting.

     Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the perspective
was ordered received, and Mr. Wilson was thanked for the fine work
he is doing on the Dormitory plans and specifications.

     F. Budget Increases.

     President Donovan submitted a list of budget increases which
have been made, upon approval of the President, to meet the demands
of the various departments in handling the increased enrollment of
the University.   The list of increases by departments was read and
the President recommended that a total of $19,74l.84 be appropriated
out of the unappropriated surplus of the University budget to meet
the increases requested.

     After due consideration of the recommendation and the requests
of the various departments, upon motion duly made, seconded and
carried, the sum of $19,741.84 was ordered appropriated to the de-
partments listed and,for the purposes shown.   The Comptroller was
ordered to transfer the necessary amount from unappropriated surplus
of the budget, and the detailed list was ordered filed with the



     G. Increased Approprialtion for Lockers for Law College#

     President Donovan stated that, about a year agot he had talked
to Dean Evans of the College of Law about purchase of additional
lockers for the Law College, and that at that time he had directed
Dean Evans and the Comptroller to procure and install lockers neces-
sary as soon as they could be purchased.  He stated that Dean Evans
has reported the lockers have been procured and installed, and he
is requesting the sum of $677.46 to be appropriated to pay for same.

     President Donovan recommended that the request be granted, and
upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the sum of $677.46 was
appropriated from the unappropriated surplus of the University budget
to pay the cost of purchase and installation of lockers in the Law

     H. Request of G. L. S. Johnson.

     President Donovan submitted a request of G. L, S. Johnson) 200
College View Avenue. Dir, Johnson asked that the University Join
with him in a request to the City Board of Adjustment for permission
to add to his grocery store, located on College View Avenue.   He
requested permission to build up to the property line parallel to
the original front of his grocery store.   The grocery store is loeat-
ed   within approximately 100 feet of University property and, if
the request should be granted, would involve a change of zoning from
residence property to business property,   Also, it would require
the City to make an exception to the regulation requiring that all
new buildings or parts thereof be set back from the property line.

     It was stated that the University had no objection to Mr. John-
son enlarging his grocery store so long as the property around the
grocery store was not changed in regard to zoning.

     The Executive Committee heard the request, and took no action.

     I. Proposed Street from Euclid Avenue to the Viaduct over the
C&O Railroad Near Lafayette Hotel.

     President Donovan presented to the Committee a plat showing a
proposed new street extending the Viaduct street near the Lafayette
Hotel straight through to Maxwell Street, thence to Euclid Avenue.
He stated that such a street would be of great assistance to the
University in solving some of its traffic problems in that area, and
that a group of interested citizens had requested the University to
express its interest in the projects



      The members of the Committee heard the request and discussed
 the various advantages to the University if such a street should be
 built as contemplated.

      Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, it was agreed to
 cooperate with the City in their efforts to secure right-of-way
 needed to bring about the proposed new street.

      J. Pershing Rifles Bonds to Be Cashed.

      President Donovan reported that, in 1943, persons representing
 Pershing Rifles purchased Series F Government Savings Bonds in the
 amount of $65000, and placed them in the custody of the Comptroller
 for safekeeping.   He further explained that those in charge of the
 Pershing Rifles program now desired that the bonds be cashed and
 the proceeds deposited to the credit of the account of the Pershing
 Rifles fund.   The request had the recommendation of the faculty
 adviser, and the approval of the Commandant of the Military Depart-
 ment&   President Donovan recommended that the request be granted,
 whereupon, on motion duly made, seconded and carried, the Comptrol-
 ler waw directed, to cash Series F Government Savings Bonds and
 deposit the proceeds to the credit of the Pershing Rifles account.

     K. Employment of Captain J. R. Eschborn Terminated.

     President Donovan related that the Executive Committee, at its
meeting cd February 15, 1946, authorized the employment of Captain
J. R. Eschborn, by the Aeronautical Research Laboratory, on a tem-
porary basis.   Re stated that it is now determined that Captain
Eschborn's employment should be terminated.

     Captain JR. Eschborn and Professor A. J. Meyer both having
been informed of the desire to terminte the employment, President
Donovan recommended that the termination of employment of Captain
Eschborn be acted upon by the Executive Committee,

     Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the employment of
Captain J. R. Eschborn was ordered terminated,

     L. Student Loan Fund Bond Called*

     President Donovan reported that the City of Louisville had
Called for payment Bond No. M-17, held by the Student Loan Fund of
the University of Kentucky.   This is one of a series of bonds
issued by the City of Louisville for street improvement, in the
denomination of $1000,   It was further reported that the proceeds,
less collection charges, had been credited to the Student Loan Fund
and were being reported for record purposes.



     On motion duly made, seconded and carried, the information was
received and ordered made of record.

     U. Federal Public Housing Barracks Received.

     President Donovan reported that representatives of the Federal
Public Housing Administration had officially transferred to the Uni-
versity two H-type dormitory barracks with capacity of 326, and
three barracks buildings for women students, with capacity of 48*
He also reported that the Comptroller had accepted these buildings
and recommended that the action of the Comptroller be approved.

    ,On motion duly made, seconded and carried, the action of the
Comptroller in accepting the above named barracks for dormitories
was ratified and approved.

     N. Application to Extend McLean Stadium Denied.

     President Donovan reported that the Office of Civilian Produc-
tion, Louisville, Ky., had denied a request of the University to
enlarge the seating capacity of UcLean Stadium, and rend the follow-
ing letter:

                                        January 22, 1947

     Dr. H. L. Donovan, President
     University of Kentucky

     My dear President Donovan:

          The Board of Trustees, at its meeting December 10,
    1946, authorized you and the writers after consultation
    with Dean D. V. Terrell of the College of Engineering, to
    proceed with a program designed to increase the seating
    capacity of McLean Stadium on Stoll Field*

          The College of Engineering has prepared plans and speci-
     fications for adding one section to each end of the two ex-
     isting side stadia.   This office has submitted to the
     Civilian Production Administration, 1307 Heyburn Building,
     Louisville, application for authority to construct four
     reinforced concrete stadium sections, in accordance with
     the College of Engineering drawings.   The plans were de-
     livered, at my instruction, by Mr. E. B, Farris, who conferred
     with the officials of the C.P.A. in Louisville.   They asked
     for some additional information, all of which was furnished.
     We are now in receipt of a letter under date of January
     16, 1947 advising that the Administration does not consider
     that this kind of construction for this purpose is of such



     urgency as to permit them to approve construction at this
     time, and they have denied our request.
          Dean Terrell and I have discussed this project and are
     now of the opinion that we should start negotiations for
     a semi-perinanent steel stadium type section to be placed
     at each end of the present two sides.   These sections can
     be walled up at the end with brick so as to present a fairly
     nice effect without too great a difference between the con"
     crete and steel structures being apparent.   I believe it
     would be desirable for the three of us to discuss the prob-
     lem at your convenience.

                                   Sincerely yours,
                                 (Signed) Frank D. Peterson

     A general discussion followed.   President Donovan recommended
that we proceed to increase the seating capacity through the erec-
tion of steel stadium type grandstand, and on motion duly made,
seconded and carried, President Donovan and Comptroller Peterson
were authorized to negotiate for semi-permanent steel stadiumi'grand-
stand sections which would serve to extend the concrete stands#
They were also authorized to have prepared and to submit to the
Board of Trustees at its next meeting the necessary documents prepar-
atory to authorization and issuance of bonds in an amount sufficient
to pay the Cost of the project.

     0. Rates for Rooms in New Ments Dormitory Fixed.

     President Donovan stated that he had conferred with Mrs Hargett
of the Hargett Construction Company concerning progress being made
on the Men s Residence Hall, and had received definite assurance
that the new dormitory would be completed and ready for occupancy
by September, 1947,   He recommended that rent rates for rooms in
the new dormitory be established at this time so that the 1947-48
catalog of general information might carry a statement concerning
the new dormitory,   He read the following letter of recommendation
on rates:



                                         Twent y-third
                                         1 947

     Dr. H. L. Donovan
     Office of the President
     University of Kentucky

     Dear Dr. Donovan:

          In accordance with your request, Mr. Peterson and I
     halve given some study to the prices that should be charged
     for rooms in the Men s Residence Hell now, under construc-
     tion.   We have concluded that in terms of the current rent
     level and in terms of prices presently charged on the other
     residence halls that an appropriate rate might be $46.00
  - per.quarter for each occupant of the 38 two-man rooms and
     ;.42,00 per quarter for each occupant of the 8 four-man
     rooms.   The highest rates now chtrged in the other halls
     are $40.0O for the better single rooms and a like sum for
     a two-room suite occupied by three men.


                                  (Signed) Leo M. Chamberlain
                                             Vice Presidents

     On motion duly made; seconded and carried, the rent fee for
thirty-eight 2-men rooms was set at $46i00 per quarter for each
occupant, and for eight 4-men rooms, the fee was set at i42*00 per
quarter for each occupant.

     P. Report of State Auditor of Public Accounts.

     President Donovan submitted report of the State Auditor of Pub-
lic Accounts of audit of the Comptroller and Treasurer for the
years 1944-45 and 1945-46,   He stated that the Auditor had made a
very favorable report and requested permission to read a part of the
report.   Same was authorized and made of record.



Budgetary Operations

     The General Fund contributed a net amount of
$1,477,686.09, while operating and other institutional
receipts amounted to $3,390,889.12.   In other words, the
State General Fund contributed approximately 39% of the
total financial support and the institution itself pro-
vided 61% includihs fees and services reported as State
Revolving Funds.   These funds do not include all of the
athletic receipts.   No audit was made of these operations.
The University of Kentucky Athletic Association and the
Kentucky Research Foundation are private corporations,
incorporated under the laws of this State as non-profit
organizations.   No pecuniary profit is to be acquired
by any one except as compensation for services rendered.
Both of these corporations are separate entities with
all the private powers belonging to such corporations.
Notwithstanding this they really function as a subsidiary
of the University in the performance of their particular
purposes, without being subject to State budgetary laws.
Through this procedure in athletic operations the
financial restrictions of Stnte'laws are removed so that
the Athletic Organization may compete on common ground
with such organizations sponsored by similar institutions.

     A strictly literal interpretation of some sections
of law would hamper the institutions, especially those lo-
cated in various sections of the State. K. R. S. 41.070
prohibits the deposit of receipts in any personal or
special bank account, temporarily or otherwise, to meet
expenditures or for any other purpose.   K.R.S. 41.080
requires the Department of Finance to state on each per-
mit the person from whom the money was received and on
what account paid.   In the case of K.R.S. 41.070, it is
customary for Agencies, not located in Frankfort, to
deposit money in bank and remit by check, and not "in the
form in which received"#   In the case of K.R.S. 41.080,
if "from whom received" is interpreted to mean the person
paying the money to the institution rather than the Insti-
tution itself, in some cases it would be impossible. In
the operation of a cafeteria or boarding hall, where sash
registers are used, this requirement could not be complied
with.   Such a regulation could not be enforoed in all
receipts.   In the University with its large student body
paying in various receipts individually and daily this
regulation of naming the individuals necessitates several
days work in preparing pay-in-vouchers, increasing the
cost of administration enormously, and renders promptness
impossible,   These laws relating to receipts, as well as
C.R,8. 45.140 defining State Revolving Funds, should be
clarified by Legislative action to fully meet the tcttual
conditions.   No Agency should be compelled to resort to
any form of devise to relieve difficult situations.



     The activities work, and responsibilities of the Uni-
versity have increae3d enormously.  With a student body in
excess of 6000, not only the matter of giving instruction
but also the matter of housing, feeding and providing ad-
equate auxiliary facilities, both . educational and non-
educational, ha.ls strained the capacity of the plant to
an extreme limit.   The work of extending the temporary
housing program is still in progress4   The difficulties
in obtaining many kinds of materials and supplies have
hampered the progress and delays through regular proce-
dures have increased the cost of operations  

     The University is required to maintain its own Pur-
chasing Division. This Division must make requisition
to the State Division of Purchases forregular purchases.
"Then the amount exceeds $300.00 sealed bids are requested.
Under present economic conditions, it frequently happens
that no bids are received.   In case the demand is urgent,
this compels the Purchasing Division of the University to
go into the open market to find the goods and to procure
them# if possible. The result is long delays and waste
of time and effort with an increased cost to both the
central agency of the State and the University.    In our
opinion, it is iflpossible for one or two men in the Central
State Office to keep up with the expanding work of all
State Institutions, to keep suffELdently informed of their
detailed operations so as to forecast their buying needs,
and to fully know the sources of supply for those needs
in both retail and wholesale channels.   No criticism of
the present personnel of the Central State Purchasing
Division is impliedi   During the present economic crisisi
it has not been possible in many instances to procure
goods through competitive bidding.    'Then this procedure
fails one of the main bases of all advantages reqlized
through the centralized buying is weakened.    If the cen-
tralized Agency can not buy and the Agency itself is
forced into the open market in an endeavor to locate the
material, it is evident that the system is not functioning
properly, whatever the cause.

     In emergency buying in the open market by the Agency,
the $300.00 limit on purchases has frequently been a handi-
cap during the war emergency.   In case of ordinary emergency
purchases, explanations of the purposes or needs of the ar-
ticle and the nature of the emergency in a large number of
cases becomes onerous and burdensome.    In purchasing books,
publishers sometimes refuse to quote prices but refer to
catalogue quotations,   This renders impossible the ability
to furnish the Central State Office with such information.
Another handicap is that during present market conditions,
with demand exceeding the supply, retailers object to the
necessary procedures for payment with the usual delays,

     K.R.S, 42.060 permits the State Division of Purchases
to delegate purchasing power. This provision should be
amplified so as to relieve the University in its present



emergency without surrendering adequate control by the
Central Agency,

      In the payment of vouchers, the time equired for
 processing necessary documents through the University,
 the Finance Department and State Treasurer's Office is
 unreasonable.   Delays in payment for goods often result
 in loss of discounts and delays in semi-monthly payrolls
 are quite unsatisfactory.

      One cause of these difficulties is the Pact that
 State Appropriations have increased, naturally increasing
 the volume of work flowing through the State Finance De-
 partment and the State Treasurer's Office. At the same
 time appropriations for the two central cpartments have
 not been sufficient to enable them to care for the in-
 creased work promptly.   At present both of these Depar't-
 ments have insufficient funds to properly correlate their
 work with the needsof such institutions as the University
 and to guarantee a steady flow of day by day transactions.
 Delays are naturally more serious with institutions not
 having central offices in Frankfort, where messenger ser-
 vice is unavailable except at great expense.

     The law provides for Revolving Funds to finance cer-
tain activities self-supportincg in whole or in parts It
alsm provides that amounts over and above maintenance
and operating costs of these activities may, upon the
order of the Finance Department be used for ordinary ex-
penses of the bud.-et unit.  In actual practice, separate
Revolving Funds for all activities are not maintained.
The operations of several activities are merged in the
same Revolving Fund.   When funds in the State General
Fund appropriation run low because of allotment limitations,
the Revolving Fund is used for ordinary expenses of the
budget unit and vice versa,   At the close of the year,
when Agency funds are limited the tendency is to use all
of the G-eneral Fund appropriation, leaving any excess
funds in the Revolving Fund for future use,   At the Uni-
versity the separate accounting for State Appropriation
Funds, State Revolving Funds and institutional Restricted
Funds with numerous changes from one to the other greatly
increases the work of the University Accounting Division.
Whatever temporary gain the University may realize it
becomes a part of the Revolving Funds or other Restricted
and Private Funds,   The saving in the State General
Fund 'through lapses Is insignificant,   It can hardly be
considered enough to Justify the additional cost to the
University, a State institution, and to the State Central
Offices in the extra accounting procedures and the extra
work of separating the transaction.


           This subject of centralized control of all detailed
     Transactions, large and small, as well as the long line
     of procedures and steps required to complete transactions
     requires a special study by the Administration and the
     Legislature in cooperation with the University to evolve
     some form of simplification and control that would better
     implement the procedures and eliminate the present handi-
     caps in normal transactions.

     Q. Salary Deductions from December Payroll Ordered Paid.

     President Donovan stated that it was necessary to deduct from
the December payroll various amounts for the following list of
faculty members in order to bring the walaries for the calendar
year .ithin the $5,000,00 limit:

                      C. S. Crouse        $349096
                      W. D. Funkhouser     129.98
                      James W. Martin       45.00
                      Frank Randall        259.94
                      Maurice Seay         279.94
                      'J. S. Webb          200.00.

     He explained that the State Treasurer and Division of Personnel
Efficiency at Frankfort have controlled salaries on a calendar year
basis, Whereas the University of Kentucky operates on a fiscal year
basis, and that as a consequence six members of the faculty re-
ceived salary deductions in the amounts specified above on the De-
cember payroll.

     The State Treasurer and the Division of Personnel Efficiency
have in conference agreed henceforth to control salary limitations
of the University staff on a fiscal year basis.   However; the Uni-
versity was required to make the above deductions for the calendar
year 1946.   President Donovan recommended that the amounts be paid
from the Haggin Fund and stated that if control was exercised on a
fiscal year basis, the same condition would not again arise.

     The members discussed the reasons for the difference in salaries
for the calendar year and fiscal year, and upon motion duly made,
seconded and carried, ordered the amounts deducted paid to C. S.
Crouse, W. D. Funkhouser, James W. Martin, Frank Randall, Maurice
Seay and W*. S.1ebb, from the Haggin Trust Fund,



      R. Name of Department of AnthroR0109Y and Archaeology Changed
 I' "Department of Anthropology .
      President Donovan read a letter from Dr. IV. S. `7ebb, which had
 received the approval of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sci-
 ences, requesting the name of the Department of Anthropology and
 Archaeology be changed to the Department of Anthropology.

                                         December 19, 1946
      Dean Paul P. Boyd
      College of Arts & Sciences
      University of Kentucky

      My dear Dean Boyd:

           It would appear that the term "Anthropology'l has come
      to be an inclusive term, including Instruction in Social
      anthropology, Physical Anthropology, Ethnology, and Archaeol-
      ogy.   Because of this general connotation it would appear
      to be the part of wisdom to recommend a change in the name
      of the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology to the
      Department of anthropology.

           It is not the intent by this recommended change in
      name of the Department to change the work of the Department,
      the field of its concentration or the title of any member
      of its staff.   The recommendation is made int..bhe interest
      of simplicity and in recognition of present praotice of
      regarding the term Anthropology as a sufficiently inclu-
      sive term.

          I am not clear what formal steps are necessary in
     order to make this change in designation official, but it
     is hoped that this recommendntion may be approved by you
     when submitted to President Donovan for appropriate action.

          The recommendation is made at this time in the hope
     that final action might be taken at a date sufficiently
     early to permit this change, if made, to be incorporated
     in the new catalogue.

                                         Very sincerely yours,

                                     (Signed) Wm. S. Webb
                                            Head of the Department

     President Donovan recommended that the request be approved, and
on motion duly made, seconded and oarried, the name of the Depart-
ment of Anthropology and Archaeology was changed to "Department of


      St Payment of Architectst Fee to Johnson & Brock.

      President Donovan submitted an invoice from Johnson & Brocks
architects, for services in connection with the inspection of
buildings to be provided the University by the Federal Works Agency,
to increase our educational facilities.   He stated that the archl-
tectst fee was for services on plans for a combined work shop build-
ing and inspection of available buildings.   The invoice was for
the sum of $263.70.   He further explained that there would be
other invoices of varying amounts for services on other proposed
buildings.   After a brief discussion, the claim of Johnson & Brock
in the amount of ;263,70 was authorized and ordered paid.

     T. Mayor Oldham Calls Attention to Fire Hazards.

     President Donovan reported that he had received a communication
from Mlayor R. Mack Oldham relative to the general hysteria of the
public throughout the country concerning fires.   He called atten-
tion to various possible fire hazards at the University. President
Donovan read Mayor Oldham's letter and his reply for information
of the Committee.

     President Donovan also related that the Comptroller had request-
