      A. Meeting Opened

      Governor Nunn, as Chairman called the meeting to order at 2:00 p. m.
The invocation was pronounced by Mr. Clay. Mrs. Clark, serving as Tempo-
rary Secretary in the absence of Mrs. Blazer, the regular Secretary, reported
a quorum present and the meeting was declared officially open for the conduct of
business at 2:00 p. m.


      B. Minutes Approved

      On motion by Governor Chandler, seconded by Mr. Goss, and passed,
the reading of the Minutes of the last meeting was dispensed with and the Minutes
were approved as published.


      C. Resolution Constituting Second Amendment to Series A and Series B
Resolution Authorizing $12, 200, 000 University of Kentucky Community Colleges
Educational Buildings Revenue Bonds, Series A and $4, 489, 000 University of
Kentucky Community Colleges Educational Buildings Revenue Bonds, Series B

      Mr. Forgy explained that in connection with the authorized issue of
$12, 200, 000 of University of Kentucky Community Colleges Educational Buildings
Revenue Bonds, Series A, due to the lapse of time in issuing such bonds, $75, 000
of same would fall due on May 1, 1971 and that due to the nearness of such date it




 






                                                                    2



was inadvisable to offer such $75, 000 of bonds for sale and that the Official
Statement disseminated among prospective purchasers had not offered such bonds
for sale. He further stated that due to such lapse of time there would be funds
available from such bond issue which could be used in connection with the con-
struction of community college facilities in Madisonville, Kentucky, and that the
resolution authorizing such bonds should be amended to specifically provide that
part of the proceeds of such bond issue could be used for such purpose. Pro-
spective bidders for such bonds had been advised that the resolution authorizing
such bonds would be amended to permit this. He further stated that an interest
payment would fall due on May 1, 1971 and that it would be advantageous for such
bonds to not be delivered until that date with the result that it was advisable that
the maturity date of April 14, 1971 of $11, 811, 000 of Revenue Bond Anticipation
(Renewal) Notes be extended from April 14, 1971 to May 5, 1971 by the execution
of an agreement to this effect with the holder of all such Notes, Chemical Bank,
New York, New York, which was agreeable to such extension, the interest rate
during such extended period to be at 4 3/4%, the same rate which such Notes bear
to maturity He finally stated that due to amendments to the Internal Revenue
Code and regulations and rulings thereunder since the original authorization of
such bonds, it would be well to amend the resolution authorizing such bonds to
provide that nothing would be done which would make such bonds arbitrage bonds
within the meaning of the Internal Revenue Code and regulations and rulings there-
under,

      Thereupon, Mr. Goss introduced, caused to be read and moved the
immediate adoption of a resolution entitled:

       F. President's Report to the Trustees

       Governor Nunn explained that President Singletary was unable to attend
the meeting as he was in Chicago at the meeting of the American Association
for Higher Education. The Board of Trustees is proud that President Singletary
is a member of the Board of Directors of this group which is the largest organi-
zation in the country of persons in the field of higher education. He said that
Vice President Alvin L. Morris was representing President Singletary at the
meeting.

       Calling the Board's attention to PR 1, President's Report to the Trustees,
Governor Nunn recommended that the Board members read the report at their
leisure. He then called for a motion for acceptance of the report as submitted.
The motion was made, seconded, and passed, and the report was ordered filed.

       Determining that there were no changes in PR 2, Recommendations of

proved as a whole and made an official part of the Minutes of the meeting was
made by Mr. Clay, seconded by Dr. Nicholas, and passed without dissent. (See
PR 2 at the end of the Minutes. )


       H. Budget Revisions for 1970-71 (PR 4)

mously, the recommendation in PR 5 was approved. (See PR 5 at the end of the

       J. Investment Committee Report

       Governor Nunn asked if the Investment Committee wished to make a
report and Mr. Clay, chairman of the committee, indicated that the committee
was carrying out the Board's instructions to invest in a more careful manner
and was meeting monthly. The committee, however, had nothing special to
report to the Board at this time.


       K. Medical Center Committee Report

       Governor Chandler indicated that the Medical Center Committee had
met on the morning of March 16. As a result of this meeting, he reported to
the Board of Trustees that 100 students had been accepted for admission to the
College of Medicine for next year and that there were 40 names on a waiting
list. He said 100 was the maximum enrollment with the present facilities and
that great care had been used in selecting those admitted and those placed on
the waiting list from approximately 1, 300 applications received. In answer to
a question by Governor Nunn relative to the proportion of students admitted
who received degrees, Dr. Bosomworth replied that the national average was
10 percent attrition and the average at the University of Kentucky was 3 to
4 percent.


       L. Interim Financial Report Accepted (FCR 1)

       Mr. Clay presented the Finance Committee report in the absence of
Mr. Griffin and moved that the interim financial report covering the seven

Distribution System from 4KV to 12KV. His motion was seconded by Mr. Goss,
and passed. (See FCR 4 at the end of the Minutes.)

6



students, Mr. Terry Fox and Mr. Tom Bowden, for permission to appear
before the Board of Trustees in order to request that the Board of Trustees
"resolve and order that no allotment shall be made of University funds for the
publication of any campus newspaper". On Monday, March 15, Mr. Fox and
Mr. Bowden appeared before the committee and presented a written statement,
copies of which were distributed to those at the Board meeting and mailed to
those not present. It was the committee's decision that they be permitted to
appear before the Board of Trustees and Mr. Bell so moved. His motion was
seconded by Mr. Goss. Governor Chandler said it was his understanding that
a committee was presently conducting a study of campus-wide student publi-
cations (the Kernel, the Kentuckian, and the Kentucky Review) and he moved to
amend Mr. Bell's motion to suspend the hearing pending receipt of the com-
mittee's report. Governor Chandler's motion was seconded by Mr. Clay, and
passed without dissent. Governor Nunn then called for the vote on the original
motion as amended which carried by majority of those present and voting.


       0. Resolution Presented by Mr. Bright

       Governor Nunn recognized Mr. Bright, non-voting student member, who
said he wished to put forward a resolution, a copy of which had been trans-
mitted to the Board members in advance of the meeting and a copy of which
appears at the end of the Minutes. Mr. Bright read a statement in support of
the resolution. Some excerpts from the statement are included at the end of
the Minutes. At the conclusion of his remarks, Mr. Bright moved adoption of
his resolution. Governor Nunn called for a second to his motion. Since no
second was forthcoming, Governor Nunn declared the motion dead for lack of a
second.


       P. Resolution Adopted on Basketball Team

       Mr. Clay commended the coaches and members of the basketball team
for having won the Southeastern Conference championship and moved that the
Board of Trustees adopt a resolution of commnendation to be delivered to them
prior to the first round game against Western Kentucky University in the NCAA
Mid-East Regional Tournament at Athens, Georgia. His motion was seconded
by Dr. Nicholas, and without dissent it was so ordered. A copy of the reso-
lution appears at the end of the Minutes.

         The Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky recognizes and
pays tribute to:

                         ROBERT H. HILLENMEYER

distinguished graduate of the University, loyal alumnus, and dedicated member
of this Board for the past twelve years.

         The Univeristy of Kentucky early recognized the talents and abilities of
Mr. Hillenmeyer for he was selected as the 1943 recipient of the Sullivan Award,
the greatest honor which this institution can bestow upon a graduating senior.
After serving as a Captain in the United States Army in the European Theater
Operation, Mr. Hillenmeyer was associated with the Connecticut Mutual Life
Insurance Company in Cincinnati from 1946 until 1950, when he returned to
Lexington to become a partner in Hillenmeyer Nurseries.

         Originally appointed as an alumnus member of the Board of Trustees
in January 1959, Mr. Hillenmeyer was reappointed for two successive terms.
He served as a member of its Executive Committee from August 1961 until
February 1971. Always willing to give unselfishly of his timne and talents,
Mr. Hillenmeyer was active on many other committees of the Board, including
the Finance Committee of which he was chairman.

        Because of the remarkable empathy which he had for all segments of
the University community, he was particularly effective in interpreting the
University to the public. In turn, his understanding and knowledge of the world
outside academe enabled him to be equally adept at interpreting the public's
reaction to the academic world.

        Mr. Hillenmeyer was a second generation member of the Board fol-
lowing his father, Mr. Louis Edward Hillenmeyer,who was a member from
1924 through 1942. At the time of the elder Mr. Hillenmeyer's death in 1965,
the Board passed a Resolution which said in part, "In defining a University,
President McVey said first of all that it is 'a place, a spirit', and it was uniquely
to higher education in this place--in Lexington, in Fayette County, in the Common-
wealth--and to the spirit of the University of Kentucky that Mr. Hillenmeyer gave
a life-long allegiance." What bettcr tribute could this Board of Trustees pay to
Mr. Robert Hillenmeyer than to say, "Like father, like son", for he too has given
a life-long allegiance to this institution.

        Now, therefore, the Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky, recog-
nizing the great debt which it and the institution it serves owe to Mr. Hillenmeyer,
expresses its deep gratitude and thanks for his dedicated service and directs that
this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Board and copies transmitted to
Mr. Hillenmeyer.




 













       The Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky meeting in
regular session on Tuesday, March 16, 1971 recognizes a retiring member:

                          B. HUDSON MILNER

for his distinguished service on the Board during the period from January 1967
through December 1970.

       A native of Louisville, graduate of Princeton University with an A.B.
degree, holder of the LL. B. degree from the University of Louisville, practicing
attorney from 1940 to 1957, and now president of the Louisville Gas and Electric
Company, Mr. Milner brought a keen intellect and a wealth of knowledge of
business and economic conditions to the deliberations of the Board of Trustees.
His dual role as a member of the Board of Trustees of the University of Louisville
during part of his tenure on the Board of the University of Kentucky enabled him
to be of invaluable assistance during the period when negotiations were being
carried on relative to a possible merger of these two institutions.

       A man of proven ability in the business world, Mr. Milner contributes
generously of his time and talents to the cultural and civic affairs of his
community and of the Commonwealth. His presence on the Board of
Trustees has been most beneficial to this institution and his sound advice and
good judgment will be missed.

       Now, therefore, the Board of Trustees, acknowledges its debt to Mr.
Milner for his unselfish service, expresses its thanks and appreciation to him
and directs that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Board and
copies transmitted to Mr. Milner.

                 PRESIDENT'S REPORT TO THE TRUSTEES

                           March 16, 1971



1.    120 DOCTORS RETURN HERE FOR REFRESHER COURSE

      About 120 family physicians have gone back to school--some
after being away from the classroom 30 to 40 years--at the Medical
Center. They pursued an intensive, weeklong course to prepare for
a certification exam to be given February 27-28 by the American
Board of Family Practice. Those who pass the exam become special-
ists in family practice--a specialty created two years ago to up-
grade and expand the country's dwindling number of family doctors.
"It was a most enthusiastic group," said Dr. Frank Lemon, associ-
ate dean for continuing education. "After a full day's work, we
told them we'd have more at night--if they wanted it," he said.
"And about 85 or 90 started coming back." The doctors spent a
half or full day in various fields, including surgery, cardiology,
pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, public health, psychiatry
and general medical problems. Then there were nightly "bull ses-
sions." The medical faculty did most of the teaching, supplemented
by doctors from the University of Louisville and elsewhere. Lemon
estimated half the doctors were from Kentucky, the rest from Ohio,
Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida. He said some doctors
didn't plan to take the two-day exam, but were here just for a
general refresher course.



2.    FORMER DEAN OF MEN LEAVES $103,000 TO UNIVERSITY

      University students a decade from now will benefit from a
perpetual scholarship fund currently valued at $103,000 and created
by a former dean of men. Dr. T. T. Jones, who served the University
for 45 years as professor and head of the Department of Ancient
Languages and as dean of men, stipulated in his will that the Uni-
versity create the T. T. Jones Memorial Scholarship Fund for sopho-
more, junior and senior students. The dean was explicit in his
desired use of the gift by instructing University officials not to
divide the fund into scholarships until 1981. During this ten-
year period, income from the trust will be added to the principal.
Afterwards, the will reads, one-fourth of the income--based on its
value during the 11th year--will be accumulated and added to the
principal. The remaining three-fourths of the income is to be
divided into scholarships.   The Manchester native also requested
that the scholarships be given in $200, $300 and $400 sums each
year, and preferably to Kentuckians from the Southeastern section
of the Commonwealth.
