University Needs Funds Badly.
Financial Picture Is Not Bright
The total assets of UK as of Juno (. 19 v. were
S')S.S44.7S7.S1. Those figures, unless understood
projX'rly would tend to make the UK financial
picture brighter than it really is at the present
time. The UK administration certainly does not
have 3S million dollars which it is Iree to spend.
University assets include every item. large or
small, which the University owns. Buildings which
are a sore spot to the University such as Scott
Street Barracks. Cooperstown.
Neville Hall, White Hall, are all included in the
list of University assets. Any student who has lived
in or attendee! classes in any of these buildings can
say from experience that they should have been
torn down long ago yet these are UK assets.
Most of these buildings were erected lor temporary use only and it was specified that they should
le torn clown at the end of a five year period. The
entilation, heating, and lighting of these temporary
shacks are not conducive to study on the part of
the students yet they remain. It should be the obligation of the State to officially condemn these
buildings and erect new ones, but tin's obligation
has been overlooked by the State.
UK's total budget ranges from approximately
seven to 10 million dollars annually depending
somewhat on the amount of construction which is
done It should lx' mentioned at this point that
only about four million of this amount is provided
by the State. The remaining sum is provided by
Federal grants and individual donations. The major
part of Federal grants is set aside specif ically for
agricultural experimentation. In reality, more of
this money is spent for the people of the state than
UK students. Dr. Donovan stated that it w as harder
to obtain money for the use of the students than
for the benefit of the Kentucky populace.
To avoid a financial crisis such as occurred in
June, 1932, when memlxrs of the faculty, stall, and
other employees received no salaries for two
months, the University has an unallocated surplus
in the unrestricted fund of $151. (MM), which is actually too small for a safe operating balance of an
institution the size of the University. A fund of
this kind is essential to meet any emergencies w hich
might arise during the year.
An example of such an emergency occurred in
1951 whei Governor Wethcrby found that the
state's income from taxes was lower than had
previously been estimated and it became necessary
for him to cut the budget of the University by
S279.S00. If the University had not operated on

without reducing salaries at a time when the cost
of living was still rising. It should be clear that for
the I'niversitv to be on sale ground there should
be a surplus of four or live hundred thousand dollars at the end of the year.
Another sum which is included in UK's assets and
not understood by many is the restricted fund.

These restricted binds are sacred to the purpose

comes when we should ignore the pledge we have
made to the donors, then the I'niversitv would be
unworthy to receive future gilts. This source of income for the I'niversitv would dry up immediately
since few. if any. foundations or wealthy donors
would permit their donations to be turned over
and controlled by any other body than the Trustees
of the University.
It the State Legislature is growing tired of our
pleas for more money, it is unfortunate, because
these pleas will continue until the University is
allotted sufficient funds to operate on a satisfactory
scale. Any future implication that the I'niversitv
is not spending the binds it does have should be
recognized for what it is pure malarky. UK is
operating on a subsistence scale and this scale
should definilelv be raised.

On March 1. the United States detonated a
thermonuclear device somewhere in the Marshall
Islands. The foice of the explosion was equal to
five million tons of TXT the fireball measured 2S
miles in diameter, and the mushroom cloud soared
90. 000 feet into the stratosphere. No one had expected that the device would be so powerful. On
the same morning the device was set oil. a Marine
corporal on Kwajaleiu wrote home that he had
seen the sky light up and that "we heard loud
rumblings that sounded like thunder."
The rumblings the Marine heard came from several hundred miles away, and, sometime in the next
week or so. he is likely to hear more thunder in
the sky. The same device will be dropped from the
by parachute. It is expected
bowels of a giant
to duplicate the explosion of March 1.
Meanwhile, atomic voices from another source
will le heard this week, here in Lexington. These
voices, unlike the harsh bark ol the destructive
weapon, will give many people an opxrtunity to
get acquainted with the peacetime applications ol
the atom.
We refer to the Atomic Energy Exhibition which
will be shown in Memorial Coliseum March 2
through March 2S. This opportunity to see some
of the peaceful applications ol atomic energy should
not Ik" turned down. In a world that has come to
think of the atom only in terms of Nagasakis and
Hiroshimas. the chance to see the hopeful side of
the atom should be welcomed by every student and
faculty and staff member on the campus.
Judging from the amaing advances made in
peaceful applications of atomic energy in the fields
of industry and medicine, only sheer lolly could
sway an intelligent person from learning something
alxnit the nature of the revolution which will soon
be affecting each of us as members ol the nation,
the state, and the community. The exhibition is a
II. li.
rare chance we shouldn't pass it up.
