                                 2 April, 1930

   Mr. D. H. Peak,
   Business Agent,
   University of Kentucky,
   Lexington, Ny.

   Dear Mr. Peak:

                          In Re: Memorial Hall.

              I amn herewith returning to you the file in
   connection with the Memorial Hall with a view to the
   payment of all outstanding claims against J. T. Jack-
   son Lumber Company in connection with the building,

             From Mr. Crutcher's letter to Dr. McVey,
   dated February 12, 1930, it appears that there is now
   due to the J. T. Jackson Lumber Company on the contract
   for the erection of this building a balance of $2,713.70.
   From this letter there also appear to be outstanding
   and unpaid bills as of the date thereof, as follows:

       F. T. Justice & Company, Lexington,
       Ky.,                                  1271.37
       Aimerican Wood Column Company, 907
       Grand Street, Brooklyn, New York,     2082.43

       Repainting entire building with Uni-
       vorsity l.abor and materi.ls, two coats
       necessary to cover defective contract
       poiint job,                            3.24.90 *8



            Attached hereto till be found a letter from
John G. Pool Comnany to J. T. Jackson Lumber Comp.ny,
dated March 12, 1930, acknowledging p.ayment in Lull
of its account for mnterial on this building.

            Attached hereto will also be found a copy
of a receipt of R. W. Keenon and W. E. Darragh, attiorn-
eys for Americaan Wood Column Company, dated February
10th, 1930, for tho full na1yraent of the cln-im of that
eompany, which copy was furnished to me by the J. T. Jrck-
son Lumber Company.   However, I have had Ur. W. E. Dar-
ragh attest the correctness of this rccipt.

             I also attach letter from W0 E. Darragh to
me, stating th?.t the assignmont executed by the J. T.
Jackson Lumiber Company to Americ-n Wood Cblumn Company,$
w.s never accepted and was returned to the J. T. J-%ckson
Lumbor Comopany.

            Eliminating the claims of Johh G. Pool Com-
pany and American Wood Column dorapany whioh havo been
paid  leaves a total outstanding and unpaid bills of
Jl176i.65 against the ballanoc of ;2?13.70 owing by the
University to J. T. J.ckson Lumber Coinpany. This statc
ment is mraado on the basis of thoe Chnmberlin Metal 7oather
Strip Company's claim amounting to  371688, for which.
amount the J. T. J'ckson Lurfoor Company has delivered to
the University an Assignment.   In some of the dorros-
pondence the C'hamberlin ocople claimed j373.00, but I
was advised by you this morning tha.t the later corros-
pondence shows their claim to be 1371.88, the sure -s
the rimount of the assignment.




 






3.



           I see no reason why the claim of F. T.
Justice & Company, Lexington, Kentucky, in the sum
of $1271.37 and the claim of Chamberlain Metal Weath-
er Strip Company, Louisville, Kentucky, in the sum of
%?371.88 should notb be paid in accordance with the
written assignment of the Jackson Lumber Company
which I have taken from the file and attached to this
letter, and recommend that this be done.   I might
add that the J. T. Jackson Lumber Company did not wish
the Chamberlin claim paid until the work was acceptable
to the University, but I was advised this morning by
Mr. Crutcher over the telephone that the work had been
accepted and he had no objection to the claim being
paid.

           When credit is taken for the "1824.60 for
the repainting of the building, in accordance with
the contract referred to in Mr, Ciutcher's above men-
tioned letter, there will then remain a balance of
.1945.85 owing by the University to the J. T. Jackson
Lumber Company on the contract and this balance can
then be credited on tihe thousand dollar subscription
.,ade by the J. T. Jackson Lumber 6ompany for the erec-
tion of the Memorial 'Hall.

           It is probable that the charge of $124.60
for repainting the building will hot be acceptable
to the J. T. Jackaon Lumber Comoany, as you will notice
th',at their version of the arrang'thent which is set
forth near the end of their letter to the University
dated December 2, 1929i differs from Mrt Crutcher's
version as srt forth in his above mentioned letter
to Dr. MoVey.   The foregoing settlemnent is based on
the architectfs certificate dated February 1st, 1930,
in which the University was allowed the full deduction
of $5500.00 for alternate #9, the use of concrete tile,
instead of brick.   The last cotiVersation I had with
J. T. Jackson, Jr. indicated that he was not satisfied
with the allowance of the full deduction and I am
satisfied that the settlement will not be satisfactory
to him on this account.   However, when the claims
of F. T. Justice & Company and Charaberlin Metal Weather
Strip Company have been paid and credit tien for the
repainting, I suggest that you send a statement of
the settlement to th.e J. T. Jackson Lumber Company
so that they may take whatever steprs they wish to
regarding it.   This will at least settle the entire
transaction with everyone, except t'he J. T. Jackson
LWumb er Company.

                             Yours very truly,

                                   J. P. Johnston
JMAD*HA.

     3. quarterly ReporTt of the Presidant,.  President lHcVey
made a brief quarterly report as follows:

     (a) Attendance.   The attendance for the second semester
of tilis year is 2,825.  This number is divided as follows:

           196 in the Graduate School
         1,077 in the College of Arts and Sciences
           248 in the College of Agriculture
           539 in the College of Engineering
           80 in the College of Law
           210 in the College of Education
           275 in the College of Commerce

The enrollment in the regular session during the year has been
somewhat in excess of 3,000.  The enrollment in the Summer
Session last year was 1,328 during the first sewsion and 450
during the second session.   The increase in enrollment over
last year was a little over 186o.

     It is my judgment we shall expect an increase in enrollment
in the student body at the University for some years to cormie.
The student enrollment in high school is much below that of
other states.   For examnle, the student enrollment in high
school in the state of North Carolina is fifty-five students
for each one thousand copulation, while in Kentucky we have
only nineteen students for each one thousand population.




 






10.



      At the oresont tine we have 824 high schools in the
 State of Kentucky and the increase in high school enrollment
 in the state has been 300z0 in ten yer8rs.  All the hi-h schools
 are si;.l, however.   There are only three schools in the
 stite thnatJ enroll more than 1,000 students aend 70e of the high
 schools enroll 100 or fewer.   The oroblem of attendnce at the
 University of Kentucky, therefore, is not a declining one, but
 greoving one because 'he University receives its student body
 from the hirh school graduates of the state.   The high school
 moverae~t in Kentucky did not begin until the early nineties,
 while in many st ates it begnn much earlier.

      About one-half of the high school graduates that go-to
 colleg5e in Kentucky come to the University of Kentucky, and
 the remaining portion go to other Kentucky institutions or out
 of the state.   The University of Kentucky, of course, maintains
 collegtes covering seven different fields.  The outlook for the
 growth of t he University, therefore, is a promising one and
 we shall expect to reach the saturation point in college atten-
 dance at a much later period than any of the other states.

      (b) Building PyEram. The building program of the Uni-
versity which has oeen under way for some time will reach its
conclusion when buildings under way are finished.   The Educa-
taon building is about domolete and will be ready for use during
the summer.   The Dairy Products building is rracticaIly complete.
The Library is in Drocess of construction and we shall expect
LtO have the first wing of this building complete b3y about De-
cember, 1931.   We are making plans for the construction of an
observatory as the observatory which the University used for
many years had to be torn down in order to make room for the
construction of McVey HIall,  We are also making plans for the
construction of an animal house to meet the needs of the various
science departments.   Funds were provided for an Agricultural
ln-gineering building, and plans for this building should be
ready in the near future.   We have funds also appropriated by
the Legislature for the construction of a Beef Cattle barn
and a Hog barn.   Both of these buildings are to be erected
shortly, and we shall have recommendations for their construction
in the near future.  The Le.islature also -;nade an appropria-
tion for a. service building on the University czampus to house
machinery and eQuipmcnt in use on the grounds, and a recommenda-
-tion will be made later for that building.

     We have immediate need, however, for more buildings, The
residence halls for women are now crowded, and we have no
place for the increasing number of young women coming to the
Univeysity.   The question as to whether or not we shall nt-
ter~lt to expand facilities to take coare of the Tooming condio
tions for young women is al problem for consideration.  The
University has found it is more satisfactory to house the n ,omne




 






11.



in University buildings than to attempt to have them live in
Drivate families in the city.

     In addition to this, we need provisions for a Music
buildin&, and a laborn'tory  building for geology, bacteriology
and zoology.   We also need an Engineering building, and addi-
tional Provisions for women's dormitories.

     (c) Report of the Zoning Com-mission. The City of Lexing-
ton has had a zoning commission studying the situation of city
zoning fox thse past year.  Recently the Commission made its
report, and has made certain recommendations affecting Universi-
ty property.   Recently we had a meeting with the Commission
at its request and discussed several points contained in thle
recommendations of the Commission which would affect the Uni-
versity.   Briefly these points are:

           (1) A widening of Limestone Street.

           (2) The widening of the Nicholasville Pike
               from the junction of Limestone and Rose
               Streets for a distance of one mile out
               of the citLye

           (3) The widening of Rose Street, particular-
               ly beyond Washington Aventie.

           (4) The construction of boulevards around
               the city.   It is proposed by the zoning
               system to construct two boulevards around
               the city, both of which would cut across
               University property.   The widening of
               streets would, of course, involve Uni-
               versity Dronerty.   The boulevards would
               cut through the Experiment Station farm,
               and we have filed objections with the
               Commission particularly to cutting the
               University farm.

     (d) Purchase Of Tobacco Warehouse.   In'front of the Uni-
versity campus is a toacco Warehouse which not only obstructs
the viewer in front of the carnDus but is rather unsightly when
considering t-he teacher-trainiing building just constructed.
We have been wondering whether or not this Building could be
purchased and t.he 'k25,000 aonroved by the Le.--islature applied
on its nurchase.

     This is all t'lat I hlave to offer in the way of a report.

     The question of the purchase of a tobacco warehouse was
referred to a committee consisting of President McVey, Mr.
Crutcher, and Mir. Peak.  This committee was asked to consider
the matter and make a report at a later meeting of the Board.

      All these bids were higher than contemplated, and a motion
was made, seconded, and carried that the bids be referred to
a committee, consisting of Mr. James Park, President McTey
and Mr. Crutcher, who should have them tabulated and studied
and make a report at a later meeting of the Executive Committee,


     6. Purchase of Additional Property for Experiment Station.
A communicat ion was read from Dean  ooper recommending the
purchase of about twenty acres of land as an addition to the
Experiment Station in order to straighten a property line.
A suggestion was made to pay for the property out of Experiment
Station income,   The matter was discussed and a motion was
made, seconded, and carried referring the matter to the Presi-.
dent of the University with power to act.

     7. Storm Sewer at the Education Building. President Mc-
Vey reported to tnre Board thaat in the construction of the
Teacher-Training building draimage in that area had been in-
terfered with causing the water to stand around the streets
and houses in the vicinity and that the only solution seemed
to be the construction of a storm sewer across University
property connecting with the city sewer.   The matter was dis-
cussed, and a motion was made, seconded, and carried authorizing
'hie construction of such a sever with the understanding that
the City of Lexington should pay one-third of the cost and the
University to pay two-thirds of the cost.




 









13.



     8, Honorary Degrees.    A communication was read from
the University Senate recommending that the honorary degree
LL.D. be conferred upon the following persons: Edward E. Hume
of Washington, D. C., and William H. Townsend of Lexington,
Kentucky.   A motion was made, seconded, and carried ,hat ihe
degrees recommended be conferred.


     9. School of Religion.   President McVey presented a ptti-
tion from a group of persons interested in the establishing of
a school of religion at the University, together with a platn
for such an institution.   The matter was discussed at length,
but no action was taken.

    10. Allowance for CountV Agents for Travel.    President Mc-
Vey called the attention of the Board to the provisions of Te-
cent legislation, limiting allowance for travel on automobiles
used for travel on state business to five cents a mile, and
stated that county agricultural agents had previously been al-
lowed $50.00 a month to cover all traveling expenses.    The mat-
ter was discussed and a motion was made, seconded, and carried
that county agents be allowed five cents a mile on automobiles
-hen used for University business, this to be in lieu of pre-
vious arrangements making an allowance of $50 a month for all
traveling expenses; and that this arrangement become effective
April 1, 1930.


    11. Calendar of the University Year.    President McVey pre-
sented a calendar for the University year 1930-31 which was
passed by the Board as follows:
