Trustees Indicate Desire
To Help Paducah College

The Kentucky General Assembly has been requested to
enact legislation permitting Paducah Junior College to join
the University's community college system.
The request was made Friday by the executive committee
of UK's Board of Trustee. The

initiation for Paducah's joining
the University was taken last
week by the Paducah City Commission and the junior college's
Board of Trustees in similar resolutions asking the General Assembly for "permissive

legisla-

tion."

Dr. John W. Oswald, UK
president, said if legislation is
approved Paducah still will not
join the community college
system until financial details can
be worked out.
Paducah Junior College,
which was founded in 1932, presently is financed through tuition

and city and county taxes. Over
students attend the school.
The resolution adopted by
UK endorses the continuance of
the local tax base from Paducah
and McCracken County for use
"to enrich the basic programs
of the college."

Instructors Remain Skeptical About Merger
Consolidation Of Three Agriculture Units Approved
By WALTER CRANT
Kernel Editor-in-ChiDairy science and poultry science instructors apparently are skeptical about the
merger of their departments with the Department of Animal Science.
Some specialists in dairy and poultry
production fear a loss of identification as
a result of the merger. Although instructors
in the two areas are quick to recognize
the consolidation advantages, most apparently feel there will be problems.
The action was taken Friday by the
executive committee of the University Board
of Trustees. Specifically, the trustees combined the departments of dairy science,
animal science and poultry science into a
new Department of Animal Sciences. The
departmental reorganization will be made
effective July 1.

In other business Friday, the
trustees changed the name of
the College of Commerce to the
College of Business and Economics. The change, which becomes effective July 1, was made
because the "term commerce is
no longer appropriately descriptive of the instructional programs
of the college."

Here are the facts behind the

1. The University announced
Thursday the YMCA and its sister group, the YWCA would be
"phased out" of financial support, hopefully beginning next
year.
2. YMCA director Don Leak

promised
Their pledge of renewed and increased interest is the first credit.
6. Preliminary plans call for a
"bridge" to be built between the
campus club and the Lexington
community YMCA, the latter providing funds and staff.
7. Those who remain promise
to continue formulation and enactment the kind of programs
upon which the YMCA reputation
at UK is built.
Next year, which for the Y
begins with the new administration elected now in the semester,
is a most important one, says

current Y secretary Robert Rich,
freshman law student.
Rich doesn't blame the University's ostracism for organizational problems within the Y,
and he is optimistic about the
Y's future.
Rut his cautious optimism
turns caustic when he considers
what may eventually result from
the separation.
"The Y will be very closely
examined and reappraised next
year, and if it doesn't cut the
mustard, the University maydrop
it from the campus," he said in
an interview Sunday night.
Being kicked out of its spacious and central Student Center
location would be the worst thing
that could happen, he said.
"The uniqueness of the Y it
character building and service
projects can be accounted for
partly because of students' identification with its proximity."
Rich, who will serve on the
Advisory Board next semester,
said most colleges are establishing a trend of cutting off YMCA
funds to bring about independence.
But, he added, they recognize
the need for a central location and
provide free office space.
Under the UK separation proposal, the Y would pay rent for

leadership somewhere, and the
status of department holds more
prestige, he said.
Dr. Deaton did note, however, that combined facilities will
bring certain advantages.
Dr. Okra Jones Abbott, associate professor of poultry science, said, "Some of us have
wondered just how the new department will be set up and if
there will be as much emphasis
on each group. We can see where
there may be problems."
"In the long run the merger
could be in the best interest of
all, but we will have to keep
the personnel interested in all
areas," Dr. Abbott added.
Dr. Durward Olds, professor
of dairy science, said he thinks
the department will be able to

from a merger. "But I think we
could profit from the other departments regardless of a merger," Dr. Olds said.
"I'm not sure much initiative
will be taken by Dr. Garrigus
to help us," he added.
Dr. Donald Wayne MacLaury,
professor of poultry science, said
the merger simply places the
three areas under an old format.
He pointed out the poultry and
dairy departments were not established until 1960.
No comments were given by
Dr. Arthur William Rudnick Jr.,

apparently have concerning the
future of the YMCA at UK.
"What Mr. Johnson has proa
posed and discussed with me is
structure that will make the
YMCA an autonomous group
answerable to what will be called
the Office of Religious Affairs."
"Presently, we are responsible
to Mr. Johnson and employed by
the University. But, and it is
ridiculous, the YWCA is completely divorced from us and must
answer to the dean of women and
the YWCA advisory board."
The University will gradually,
help the two groups become
autonomous over a period of four
years, eventually becoming independent and answerable to the
Office of Religious Affairs, Vice
President Johnson told the Y advisory boards Wednesday. The
Rev. Mr. Leak said neither of the
Y organizations
should become
extinct, but with the help of the
University must withstand the
future transition.

director of the YMCA and religious coordinator I have been
