My dear Sir!

     This office is in receipt of your letter of Januavy
14th in Whict you ask if Seetion 13 of Chapter'.12 of -the
Aots of 1918; which Chapter is the Avt -;reat-ng the Sud-
get Appioprla+.ion Cbmmiission, repeals the arnnal appropri-
ation of $62,000 a year t-o the 'University of ;Ceztucky for
Agrioutltra' Extensionu Work, maZe unaer the provisions of
Chapter 12'7 of the AcT.i of 391-!.

     Chapter 12 of tue Acts of 1918 creatizg the Budget
Appropriation Goramissnon adrl defir.a1g 5.-Ls -l';es aed
powe."s, was approved ljr tlhe oover:rc' on Jaxloi i6, 1918,
and C!hapter 127 o^ the AoLa nr 1918 :r.t   th, aiynual
approroiation ico :he Uariveirsi';y of Tent-;aky for A.g1,loul-
tural. Exitensicn Work was %pprovcd o02 llarci 29. t9.,8
The Buaget Approprlacjon Cornmissiom Xaw- a  not ocarry an
Emergenvy Clause.   Ohapter 1277, above referred to, did
carry aii Emergeno- Claa.se.  Seotior. 13 of the Budget
Apyrorriation Coza'nissio-. Act provides as follows:

           OA11 appropriatiors heretofore made and
     oontiauaiag from year to yca. wider previous
     laws are heretb retpealed upon the taking effect
     of appropriations made pursuant to the provis-
     ionc of thi.s ae-. "

          Seotion 19 of the same act provides; wAll
     aots and parts of acts in oonfl-io, herewith
     are hereby repe^.1ed to the exceut of such oon-
     f liet."

     It is the opinion of this offioc that section 13;
and seotion 18 :eoessarily referred to laws in ef.fe-t at
the date of the passage of the Budget Alpropriatwii Co;6.
mission act, whioh necessariiy was before Mavesh 16,. :lc .T)
At the time section 13 was enacted4 Chapter 12.7 of t11." ?ots
of 1918 was not a law, and it would seemn to this Oi!53-
thai it Would necesnoarily follow that sections 13 anid IS
Would.. 'b   no applicatlon to ohftpter ;27 of the Ac:i-s ot -.9318.

         In addition to this, it is a general rule of law
    that as to acts passed at the same session of the General
    Assembly, such a construction should be given to them, if
    possible, as to give force and effect to the provisions
    of each; and following this principle, it would seem to
    this office that the proper construction for the courts
    to put upon the two acts in question would be to hold that
    sections 13 and l8 apply only to acts passed prior to the
    session of 1918, and that the provisions of chapter 127
    of the Acts of 1918 were intended to be an exception to
    the provisions of section 13 of the Budget Appropriation
    Commission act.

          ?or the reasons stated above, it is the opinion of
     this office that it will not be necessary to submit to
     the Budget Commission and secure through it the appro-
     priation provided for by the Act of 1918'.

                                        Yours very truly,

                                  (Signed) Charles 1. Dawson,
                                         Attorney General.

     (6) Geological Survey.   President MoVey reported to the Com-
mittee that as the result of an act passed by the last legislature
the State departments of Geology and Forestry have been united in-
to one department under a commissioner and deputy commissioner of
geology and forestry.   President McVey pointed out that about six
years ago the geological survey was removed from the University to
?rankfort; that about $25,000 annually was available for carrying
on the work; that the fields of botany and zoology in the State were
practically undeveloped altho Kentucky is a rich field for this work
and abounds in resources and material for botanical and zoological
research; that unless something is done in the near future in these
fields, outside agencies will develop the State along these lines.
Pyesidditi'movey suggested to the Committee the advisability of the
University' s taking over the geological survey and also developing
a survey in botany and zoology.   The Committee received the matter
favorably and requested the President to make proper representa-
tions to the Governor on this point.

     (7) Building Site for Sigma Nu Fraternity.   Mr. Keeling
Pulliam representing the Sigma Nu Fraternity appeared before the
Committee and made application for a building site for a fratern-
ity house for the Sigma Nu.   Be stated that his fraternity was
prepared to erect a building without the necessity of carrying a
mortage on the property and applied for a site on Winslow street.
On motion the matter was referred to a committee consisting of Mr.
Ernst, Mr. Johnston and President McVey.

On motion duly secouded, the President was authorized to make the

     (.9) Salaries. The matter of a bonus to members of the faculty,
3.Asussed at a previous meeting. was presented by President McVey,
and a letter from Dean Cooper was read making oertain recommendations
regqrding a salary bonus. The matter was referred to a committee
consisting of Mr. Ernst, Mr. Wells#. and President UeVey for further
consideration.

     (10) Leave of Absence of Professor Killebrew.   President MoVey
reported to the Committee that during the present year Professor
C. D. Killebrew had been granted sabbatical leave of absence in ac-
cordance with the constitution and by-laws of the University; that
Professor Killebrew had gone to the University of Michigan for the
purpose of study; that subsequently he had been offered a position
to teach in the University of Michigan; that after $300 had been
paid to Professor Killebrew, the matter had been brought to his
attention.   The President stated to the Committee that as a'matter
of principle such leats of absence was granted for the purpose of
study. He therefore recommended that Professor KillebreW'5s salary
while on leave be canceled, and that after December 1 .1920, ti.o
further payments be made to him.   On motion duly seconded, the
recommendation was approved.

     (11) Appointments, Resigc2nations and-Inoreases in Salary.
