    President H. L. Donovan
    University of Kentucky

    My dear President Donovan:

          I submit, hereto attached, the financial report for
    the University for the period ended February 28, 1945.

         The report shows realized income and expenditures for
    eight months of the current fiscal year, and reveals that
    collections are current on a comparative basis; expenditures
    are slightly accelerated on a comparative basis with last
    year, due primarily to increased appropriations.   If com-
    pared on a percentage basis, the percentages on the two
    periods are about current.

          I submit below a comparative statement of current (gen-
    eral) Income and expenditures for the periods of July 1st
    to February 28, 1945.

determined free balance June 30, 1945.

                                          March 7, 1945

     President H. L. Donovan
     University of Kentucky

     My dear President Donovan:

               In November 1944, the Executive Committee of the
     Board of Trustees entered into a contract and release agree-
     ment with the lMlawen Miotor Corporation whereby the University
     agreed to purchase, and the hawen Motor Corporation agreed
     to sell materials and equipment owned by the Mawen Motor
     Corporation and at that time located in the Aeronautical


    Research Laboratory of the University of Kentucky.    Dhe
    Contract and Release Agreement was approved by the Attorney-
    G-eneral of Kentucky and signed by you as President of the
    University of Kentucky and forwarded to the officials of
    the Mawen Motbr Corporation for the signature of the pres-
    ident of that corporation.

                This Contract and. Release Areement has been
    properly executed by the president of the Mawen Motor
    Corrooration as of March 1, 1945, and is now of record in
    this office.   We have taken the necessary steps towards
    completing the purchase agreement for materials and equip-
    ment in the Aeronautical Research Laboratory.

                                       Respectfully submitted,

                                   (Signed) Frank D. Peterson

    J. Request of Student Loan Fund Committee.

    Dean Chamberlain presented request of Student Loan Fund Commit-
tee concerning the investment of receipts, and establishing the
permanent Student Loan Fund at 50,000o.

                                       February 27, 1945

     President H. L.Donovan
     University of Kentucky

     Dear Presifsdent Donovan:

          The Student Loan Fund Committee met in this office
     for a full hour yesterday.   The committee members are MXers.
     Holmes, Dr. R. S. tJllcn, Mr . Kilmer Combs, Miss Lucy Meyer,
     ivisa Jane Oldham, myself.

          We had no applications for loans but we explained
     to the committee the condition of the loan fund and its
     plan of operation.

          The committee decided to request you to increase the
     permanent fund to $F.OO000 by transfer of funds from the
     temporary fund.   They also request you to invest lOOOO
     of the cash now uninvested.

          The attached statement from the Comptroller's Office
     shows that on January 31 there was only Ql90 outstanding
     in notes receivable.   By April 1, we expect this to be
     reduced still further.   For the last two years collections
     have been good and the demand for loans has been small.




     I can not see any considerable demand for loons before Sep-
     tembber 1946, and the deomuad may not be normal for two years
     after that.

          During this lull we want to build up the loan fund all
     we can.   If we could bring the permanent or Endowment fund
     to $100,000 that would be a pretty good operating basis.

     The Committee discussed the investment of $10,000 of Student
Lo an Fund money, and after being advised that this amount had already
been invested, discussed the request to mt.zke the permanent Student
Lonln Fund $50,000, instead of 541,312.27, as is now shown by the
records6             (S-igned) T.T.Jones, Chr.Student Loan Fund Com.

     The Committee took the following action:

                          * * * * * * * * * *

             6. Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried,
                thie sum of i8,j687.73 is ordered transferred
                from tempornry funds to the permanent Student
                Loan Fund.   The Committee reserves the right
                to transfer this amount from the permanent
                Student Loan Fund if and when it deems it ad-
                visable for the good of the University and the
                Student Loan Fund program.

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

Dear Sir:

          Relative to the ancient Transit which I am pre-
senting to the University, I will say that I received it
f'rom the family of Judge T. C.Dpbney of Cadiz, Kentucky,
in 1886 or 1887 and that as a young boy was told that it
was used in running the line between Kentucky and Tennessee.

          The Dabney family caime into possession of it
through an uncle of Mrs. T. C. Dabney named Sumner and
known to the younger members of the family as Uncle "Sumner"
a young surveyor.

          Where he got it I do not know.   I have been un-
able to find out whether Xt was used in running "Walker's"
line run in 1779 or "Alexander's and Munsell's" line West
of Tennessee liver run in 1619.



              I will s tate that I am given permission by the
    last members of the Dabney family to present it to the
    UnJ X ers ity.
                               Yours very sincerely,

                                 (Signed)  S. D. Averitt.

                appreciation to each of the donors.
