     3. President Mckeyts Quarterly Report.

     President 1cA.Teyls Quarterly report, ordered inserted in the Min-
utes, follows:

                     R7POR'T .OF TIEC PRTSID:','T
                           FOR THE
                     S~dOTD QtJART7R, 1  -34 o35

     ieambership of the Board of Trustees.  I have to report at the
opening of this meeting that two new members have been added to the
Board to succeed E. 0. Robinson, deceased, and Dr. XV. '7. hash, de-
ceased.   Lear. Joseph D. Haydon, Superintendent of L. & IT. Railroad
Division at Rpvenna, was appointed by Governor Laffoon to succeed
Mr. Robinson.   From the State Board. of Agriculture Mir. William C.
Hanna,of Shelbyville, was appointed to succeed Doctor 7ash.   My
attention has been cq7.led to the resignation of Mr. 0. 0. Craves of
Georgetown, which was sent to Governor Laffoon some time al'o.  No
successor has been appointed.   Then this appointment is m-Iad-e the
Board of Trustees will have a full ...membership for the first time in
a num.Lber of years.

     Attendance.  The only way in vwhich to determine the enrollment
of ant institution is to take the figures for a given day in each
year.   On October 15, 13{14-,there were 2,325 men and women register-
ed in the University.   Of this number 1,647 were men and 973 were
women.   In comraring the enrollment this year with that of last
year on the corresponding date an increase of 15; is shown.   There
are 50 more seniors, 43 more juniors, 53 more sophomores and 1 97 more
freshmen than there were registered last year.   In the Graduate
School on October 15 there were five fewer than last year.   In this
statement I have just made it must be remembered that the SumLier
School and Extension students are not included.   If these were add-
ed it would be necessary to increase the number by 1, 1-A for the
Sumner Seasion and 2,402 for the Departm.en'at of University Extension,
The total number of indiviOual students attending the University of
Kentucky for the year will approximate 6,G75.

     University of Kentucky Txpenditures.   From 1918 to 1932 there
was a steady increase in expenditures for educational purposes at the
University of Kentucky.   The table which is attached shows that
such expenditures rose to the sum of A991,287,11 in 1932,   Since
then the amount expended on educational purposes has fallen 241.  In
1918 the inventory of buildings for the general camnus was
,t503,750.00 and in 1934 the figures shown on the books of the Uini-
versity show t,3,491,586.18 in buildings.  The Experiment Station
buildings in 1918 are listed at tl93, 935.00, and in 1934 at
,382,554.35.  The teaching eouipment has increased in value from
.$1189,281.37 in 1918 to 0792,896.16 in 1934; and the Experiment
Staltion equipment from  109, 476 .16 in 1918 to 4209,349.09.  These
figures show a substantial betterment of equipment and buildings, but
it should be pointed out that the University has no provision for



depreciation.  Conseauently, the fiiures must be discounted by a
considerable degree.

     T"he Graduate School.  The largest enrollment in the Graduate
School at any time is in the Summer Session.  The enrollment for
last year on October 15 was five more than for the same date this
year.   As time goes on, the University of Kentucky must increase
its graduate offerings and it is suite important that such offerings
should be strengthened from year to ye;ar.  The University has been
recognized and accepted by various accrediting agencies, but it is
not a member of the Association of American Universities, though it
is on the list of that organization as an approved institution. To
become a member of the Association of Ameri.can Universities it is
necessary that the University of Kentucky shall maintain a high
standard of graduate work and. have the necessary library anld. eauip-
ment that go with such a. standard.  There are now eight dei-a.rtments
in the Univerriitly of Kentucky offering work leading to the Cd.octorts
degree.   Recently the American Council on Education set up a com-
mittee to study the institutions giving the doctor's degree. There
has been a good deal of criticism of the methods employed by this
commit'tee, not only by those who did not r.:et on the approved list,
but also by those who did.   The University was not on the list,
thouch it received a considerable vote in six of the eight depart-
ments now offering the doctor's degree.  There appears to be need
for careful study of the offerings nope made by the University and
greater activity on the part of the staff in the way of writing, re-
search and study in the graduate fields.  Graduate work is expen-
sive but is fully justified in its results.  The University needs
books and, arparatus for work inUte graduate field.

     Growth of the Library. The Library was increased by 17, 700 book,
last year.   Tt has a total of 165,000 volumes at the present time.
This increase over the last year is a notable achievemaent.  Zany
gifts have been received, particularly older books.  It would be
well for the University to canvass the State for books and .manu-
scripts for the University Library.  At the I.ast session of the
Legislature an act was passed authorizing the University to receive
duplicates from the State Library, and another law was passed author-
izing the counties to give old records and. statute books to the Uni-
versity.   In making provision for these gifts the Library needs
shelving and cases, narticularly the last, to take care of old manu-
scripts such as letters and diaries.

     Government Punctions.   The University has been called upon
many times in the last few years to furnish men for government work.
It has been the custom to lend them to the Government for short
periods rather than transfer them to the federal government activi-
ties.   This ornctice has been followed by the 7xtension and Experi-
ment Station Director and cooneration has been developed thereby. A
very heavy burden has fallen on the men and women in the `xtension
service in connection with hog, corn, wheat and tobacco crop adjust-
ments.  The work has been well done and on the whole writh compara-
tively little friction.  IYow comes the process of rural rehabilita-
tion and the Government is building up a. staff recruited largely
from extension workers.



     The FERA has been utilized by the University under the pro-
visions of the act.   The number of students receiving such assist-
ance is 279.  The purpose of the University has been not to make
work, 'but to use the additional help to assist in various matters
of importance to departments and colleges.   The result is,the en-
tire group has been put to work in different departments.   The de-
partments have developed a great number of needs which were evi-
dently not taken care of in the past, or only partly done.

     Problems in Education.   One of the problems of education is to
bring it up to the needs and requirements of the present.   It is
essential that instruction should be adapted to present conditions
and endeavor made,as far as possible, to throw light upon them and
assist the student to meet new situations.   This may be illustrated
by the reouest that courses be offered to fit a person for service
in the National Re-employment Service.   This field calls for
trained men and woomen, and as things stand now, they are difficult
to get.  Another field taken up by the University in connection
with the government is the Nursery School established in the College
of Education.   The school is in an experimental stage.   The Uni-
versity is feeling its way and hopes to answer the question whether
the school should be organized as a permanent thing.   If this
nursery school is permanent, after the next six months, the Univer-
sity will have to make more adequate provisions for it.   The neces-
sary equipment would include a. house, ecuiprent and some assistants.

     Alumni Relations.   It is ouite evident that any study of alum-
ni relations would indicate a need of reorganization at the Univer-
sity.   The question arises as to what type of organization should
be brought into existence.   For some years the Alumni Association
has been conducting some of the work, but it finds it increasingly
difficult to provide for a secretary and any sort of a publication.
Should this organization be taken over by the University, allowing
the alumni to arrange for dinners, class reunions and the develop-
ment of alumni clubs throughout the state and country?   If this
plan is followed the maintenance of the alumni directory, the pub-
lication of alumni news and the establishment of contacts would be
carried on by the University.   Here is a very important matter
that should be given careful attention by the University.

     It has been suggested that a division of public relations be
set up and that this division would include in its organization
alumni relations, publicity, extension and a placement bureau.   The
purpose of putting these different types of work in one orga.niza-
tion is to coordinate tinem and bring to thern a certain workable
policy that would apply to all, and to a certain extent, prevent
duplication.   Some study has been made and a more definite recom-
menda.tion will be made at a future :leeting.

     Ca:Mpus Conditions.  There are a good z'any things which should
be done on the campus.   Through the agendy of the C. .7. A. six or
seven buildings were oainted, somne grading provided, walls built,
and murals painted and placed in the library and the Xe-ire.morial Hall.
There is Much more to be done.   T'-here is a very great need for
repairs on the buildings, especially the older ones.    The roads
and walks of the University should be rebuilt.    More painting sould



be done and repairs provided in many places.

     It is likewise essential thpat the University should take up
the cuestion of a heating plant for the whole camPUs.   Some in-
ouiries have been made in tisi. direction, but nothing definite has
been cone.   There is still some hope tha.t something may yet come
out of the Public '.:orkls Admrinistration andt the University may secure
funds for the erection of a student union building.   This miatter
is much in the minds of the students and is called to moy attention
from -time to tine with a good deal of emphasis.

     Taken all in all, the University has been g6ing along satis-
factorily in view of the restrictions arising out of decreased in-
come.   lpluch is needed and the interest of the Board of Trustees
in the work of the University should be given it with increased
study of its oroblems.   Thle devotion of the Board to the Universi-
ty in the past has been of the highest order.    in this particular

     6. Radio Broadcasting Service.

     President 1'ocl.ey presented a letter from Mr. Credo  Harris, Gen-
eral t*:anager of WHAS, radio station of the Courier Journal and the
Louisville Times, relative to probable shift of time of service to
the TJniversity, as indicated in following quotation fromr. Harris'

          You are doubtless aware of the fact tha.t all chain
     outlets are under contract to the parent organization to
     clear time when the demand is made upon them.   This is
     a matter of necessity to the chain, because its coramercial
     department sells a national advertiser a. large schedule,
     and the advertiser buys the basic network which Leans a
     stated number of stations over the country.   If any one
     of these outlets should arbitrarily refuse to carry the
     programme, the chain wrould be not only embarrassed but
     suffer a financial loss.   These are the principal reasons
     why stations are nut under contract to clear time upon de-

          We have now reached a place where the chain positively
     demands a portion of t hat noon period, and Be are using all
     of the diplomatic efforts within our ken to save it for you,
     instead of giving you the same amount of time at slightly
     different places .

     President MoVey was authorized to act for the University in mak-
ing adjustments with PI.r. Harris.

     9. Proposed Change in Euclid Avenue to Intersect with Bolivar

     ';r. Hillenmeyer at recuest of Lexington city officials present-
ed a blue print prepared byr city officials showing; a suggested change
in Euclid Avenue.   The change would. cut from the southeast corner
of University property a section extending about 200 feet on South
Limestone Street.   The street would then extend through the vacant
lots on the west side of South Limestone Street, extending to South
Upper Street, opposite the intersection of Bolivar Street.    It was

fic by the city, especially in that it would afford better parking
facilities for events held at Stoll Field, the University Gymnasium
and the Training School Building, and that such advantages would
inure to the benefit of the University.

advisable to defer action pending further investigation, and a mo-
tion was Made and passed referring the matter to Fresident 2.cVey
and Superintendent Crutcher for a conference by them with the of-
ficials of the city and the city zoning committee.    They are to
determine whether or not the change will be advantageous to the Uni-
versity and to the city, the damage, if any, to University property,
its building plans and effect upon its rights and privileges; to
determine the lines of the street and the disposition of property
on northeast corner of Limestone Street adjoining University prop-
erty not used in the changed street.   Their report is to be made

     'e6OO.00 for the purpose of furthering the work which we are
     doing in assisting the farmer, particularly the tobacco

     and selling their products, and hope that we will be able to
     continue this service.
