    Lloyd B. Averett renders service to the group. Applications
    for new insurance and beneficiary changes should be reported
    to him,

    To the Employees of the University:

    The second fiscal year of our group insurance system ended
    on June 1. Mortality, during the past year, greatly exceeded
    the normal expectation.   The weighted-average age also in-
    creased substantially due to a sluggish turnover.   Bhut the
    system is nevertheless on a sound basis in that it has proved
    itself,  almost at its inception, capable of withstanding the
    severest shocks.

                        TIE PREMIUM RATE
         Although the weighted average age increased materially
    during the past yea the premium rate of eighty-four cents per
    month per $1,000 is continued for the year 1934-35.   As ex-
    plained below, in view of the ma-.ny deaths last year, the div-
    idend received this year is too small to make possible any ap-
    preciable  reduction in Premnium payments.   It is, therefore,
    necessary to deduct $2.52 per $1 ,000 from salary due for June
    to those employed for ten months while the customary deduction
    of eighty-four cents per $11,000 will continue for those em-
    ployed on the twelve-months basis.    The sum of t 2,52 includes



payments of eighty-four cents per month for June, July and
August.   Obviously, beginning with the September salary
payments, the charge to those employed for ten months will
continue as formerly a.t eighty-four cents per .$1,000 per

     Because of administrative difficulties it has been
deemed best to charge the two classes of employees the same
rate during the academic year and to equalize the contribu-
tions of those in the College Division wid others on a ten-
month-pay basis by making the proper charges against the
last salary payment of the school year.

                   EXPERIENCE RECORD

     Four de6.th claims in the amount of $8,000 were met
during the past year.   All. of these were paid within forty-
eight hours following the insured's demise.

     The number of lives insured has increased steadily.
On June 1, 1932, the number in the group was 554, a year
later the number was 577, and at the close of the last fis-
cal year the number was 591.

     Cancellations since installation of the system have
amounted to ninety-three, or fifty-five for the first and
thirty-eight for the second year.   These may be attributed
almost wholly to employment termination.

     Total insurance coverage is now $1,060,000 which repre-
sents an increase of $121,000 for the past two-year period,
and k053,500 since June 1, 1933.

     While actual mortality was greater than expected mor-
tality during the past year there should be no cause for
concern.   No deaths occurred during our first year and
this offsets amply our recent claims.   When mortality his-
tory at this University is taken into account there is no
reason to believe that our future experience will be ether
than that originally predicted.

                  THE GROUP DIVIDEND

     The total aggregate Premium paid by the University to
our insurer during the past fiscal year amounted to 11,293.53.
From this amount is deducted a sum sufficient to meet- the re-
serve requirements, administrative expenses, and mortality
claims.   The remainder is the dividend, which this year
amounts to $482.19.   This amount has been deemed too small
to credit to the certificate holderst premium accounts.   If
returned to the members of the group it would pay only a
fractional part of the Premium per $1,000 for one month.
Further, the administrative effort which would be involved
in the distribution of this dividend would. be too great to
justify the return of such a negligible sum to 591 persons.



Therefore, it is the judgment of the committee that this
dividend should be entirely credited to the group's gen-
eral contingency fund.


     The Dividend-Ecualization Fund set up last year will
be henceforth designated as the General-Contingency Fund.

     A realization of the need of a fund to stabilize the
average gross premium rate in the event of a sharp increase
in the weighted arithmetic mean has become apparent. The
committee therefore proposes to increase gradually the size
of a fund which in time will be used for the purpose of
equalizing the dividends paid and of maintaining the average
gross rate during periods of emergency.   Inasmuch as this
fund is to serve a double purpose it is best that it be
styled as indicated above.

     The amount carried over from last year, after payment
of some incidental administrative expenses incurred by the
committee, was t546.22.*   When this sum is added to the

*Zxpenses amounted to S26,32; Cash Dividend Refunds equalled
t10. 68.

dividend for this year, appropriated to this account, there
will be a total of $1008.41 in the General Contingency Fuiw
after payment of group administrative expenses for this fis-
cal year.

     It is impossible to state that there will' be set aside
in this fund any arbitrary per cent    Of the total dividend
received from the insurer during any particular year. The
size of the dividend will largely determine our action in
this respect.

     Accumulations in the General Contingency Fund should
approximate m2,000 before we cease to appropriate portions
of the dividend for the purposes set forth.   Obviously,
if circumstances arise in the meantime which will require
an equalization of the premium rate or of an established
dividend scale the fund will be charged with the appropriate
necessary amount,

     The greater portion of the cash in this fund will be
invested in conservative securities and the income therefrom
will in turn be accumulated.   Moneys entrusted with us last
year were not invested due to the necessity of maintaining
this amount in a highly liouid condition.   For the same rea-
son, a part will not be invested during the next fiscal.,.
period.   For further explanation see SALARIES below.

                    OF CERTAIN EMPLOYEES

     The Board of Trustees adopted a rule making it compul-
sory on che part of new appointees to take group insurance
as a condition of employment.     The rule includes all era-
ployees who are reappointed from time to time.

     All persons employed at least for a year are expected
to take insurance.   Those employed for a shorter period
are not allowed to join the group in view of the possible
disturbance this procedure could make to the rate and be-
cause of the clerical cost involved.     Neither are fellows
and scholars allowed to come into the group, but if depart-
mental assistants become reasonably permanent they are ex-
pected to join.



     Compulsory membership in the insurance group is justi-
fiable because of the benefits that accrue to the individual
through cooperative effort.   Also it is placing an unnecessa-
ry burden on the shoulders of any one faculty man to ask him
to struggle with staff members and see to it that they join.


     Subject to the ruling of the Executive Committee of the
Board of Trustees of the University and the interpretation
thereof, no one may withdraw from the group system while in
his present position.

     In case of employment termination at the end of the
academic year an employee may make application within thirty
days after expiration of service for a return of his pro rata
portion of any dividend which may be allotted to the certif-
icate holders.   But in no case shall this be construed to
mean that the aforesaid employee shall be entitled to a return
of any portion of the local General Contingency Fund.

     Salary checks may be drawn at Frankfort, instead of
at the Business Office, in the future.    In that event the
University will be unable to deduct the amount of the in-
sured's monthly premiums before paymentfor services.     If
this be so, certificate holders will be required to remit
the amounts due for premiums, either personally or by mail,
to Mr. D). H. Peak, the Business Agent.   Failure on the
part of anyone to make his premium payment promptly may,
under these circumstances, cause delay in the issuance of
subsequent salary checks until the delinquent account is

     As there will be excusable delay in forwarding premium
payments in some instances, a portion of the General Con-
tingency Fund will be employed. to act as a Revolving Fund
from which moneys will be advanced to meet deficiencies in
the monthly premium due to the insurer.    This met hod is
devised because the University has no funds which could be
used for such a purpose.


     In life insurance the unit is $1,000. As indicated above
the rate per $1,000 per month is eighty-four cents.    Premiums
for ar.mounts of insurance in excess of or less than $1,000 are
either multiples or fractions of eighty-four cents. Thus
the rates for the various amounts of protection allowed by
the insurer are:



     Insurance                        Monthly Rate

     $ 500                              $0.42
     1,000                              0.84
     2,000                              1.68
     2,500                               2.10
     3,000                               2.52

     A special arrangement may be made with Mrs. Francis Hankes
(Business Office) by those desiring to pay premiuns annually,
se.mi-annually, or quarterly instead of monthly.   This is
permitted for the convenience of the insured only, inasmuch
as no saving will accrue from -.m'aking less than twelve monthly
install ment s.


           The Amount of Insurance Allowed

     The amount of insurance oermitted is partially dependent
upon the size of the insured's salary.   The schedule follows:

        Salary                                Insurance
Under $800                   -                    500
Over $800, less than  2,000 --------------      1, 000
;.2, 000 but less than t4, 000--------------    2,000
04,000 and over                                 2,500

     The maximum is $3, 000.  Call Mr. Lloyd B. Averett at Un-
iversity 142 or write him (c/o College of Conmmlerce) to de-
termine whether you are entitled to this amount.    io employee

excess of $1,000 if he is aged 60 or over.   l.,o one aged 70
or over may be ad-mitted into this group.

refers to and identifies the policy issued by the under-
writing company, by the terms of which the rights of the

change his beneficiary.    In lieu of a lump-sum payment in
event of death the insured may provide that the principal
of his policy will be paid to his beneficiary in monthly

          Total and Permanent Diability Benefits

     If a certificate holder becomes totally and permanent-
ly disabled, either physically or mentally, from any cause
whatever, while he is less than sixty years of age, and
after such disability has continued for a period of six
months, further premiums will be waived, and the amount of
insurance in effect at the time disability began will be
paid in sixty equal monthly installments during the contin-
uance of such disability.


     The benefits of this plan cease upon termination of em-
ployment except for those who are retired..

     President McVey made the following report on the project to
widen Rose Street.   Letter of Dean Cooper is as follows:



                             July 21, 134

President Frank L. McVey
University of Kentucky

Dear President McVey:

.r. Paul Morton, City Manager, and Mr. White Guyn, Engin-
eer, discussed with me the general question of the use of
Experiment Station land in the widening of Rose Street.
'-e have reached the following agreement, which is satis-
factory to Mr. Morton and satisfactory to me as director
of the Experiment Station.   I therefore recommend its

1.     The Experiment Station will run a line, which will
represent a continuation of the outside curb line as it
is at present on the east side of Rose Street at the corn-
er of Washington Avenue and Rose Street.   This line is to
be extended until it reaches the present farm fence, at
wvhich point the inside curb line will be represented by
the present fence line, continuing to the junction with
Limestone Street.   This line will be staked off by our
engineer and will represent the outside curb line of the.
east boundary to the farm fence, the fav m fence being the
inside curb line thereafter.

2.     With the base thus made of the east line, we agree
to establish therefrom the west line -- sidewalk and
street - of 50 feet, or as much less from the curb line
on the east as is decided upon.   This applies to our prop-
erty on the west side of Rose Street,

3.     Also, we have agreed that the Experiment Station
shall furnish the cement and, if necessary, the gravel or
sand, for sidewalks on the wuest side of the Station prop-
erty, the city to put them in free of all other costs, in
place of the present walks.

4.     The city will build a retaining wall along the
east line wherever it is necessary to protect the embank-

Also, I Wish to recommend that at the proper time, the
Utilities Company be granted an easement on the inside of
our fence for such lines as they now have on the east side,
the location to be such as is satisfactory to the Experi-
ment Station.   I t is -not contemplated that the Utilities
Company shall be given thre privilege for the lines now lo-
cated on the west side of Rose Street.

I trust that you will request that so far as possible an
effort be made to save our trees.   Several of them will
have to be cut in front of Professor Olney's residence,
and there are two or three that project in front of the



     dairy building.   I wish that special care would be used
     in kreeping everything that we can.  On the west side,
     there are trees in front both the Insko and. the Wilford
     residences.   I should like to have the sidewalk open,
     if necessary, so that they may be saved, rather than main-
     tain a continuous walk.   These trees add so much to the
     appearance and beauty of the place, it would be very unde-
     sirable to eliminate them.

                             Very truly yours

                       (Signed)   Thomas Cooper
                                  Dean and Director

     9. Death of E. 0. Robinson.

Trustees from Fort Thomas, Kentucky.   A number of the staff, in-
cluding President MicVey, Dean CooTer, Thompson Bryant and Rodger
Jones, attended the funeral.

    10. Approval of Budget for 1934-1935,

    President MoVey submitted his final report of the Budget for
1934-1935.   It was accepted on basis of income as shown by State
Appropriations subject to control of the State Finance Board, Fed-
eral Appropriations and on other estimated income from fees, sales,
board, room rent and miscellaneous sources.    The approvs.l was
made subject to changes theat may be made by the Board of Trustees
as necessity of such changeqbay arise.    The original copy of the
Budget was signed by R. C. Stoll, Chairman of the Executive Com-
mittee and D. H. Peak, Secretary of the Board of Trustees.

     11. Extension Work -- University of Louisville.

     President McVey referred to a proposed agreement with the
University of Loutville in regard to Extension work in the City of
Loutville.   After some discussion it was decided to defer fuxther
consideration of the question to a later meeting of the Executive
Committee or Board o-f Trust
