     3. Lezislative Program.   President McVey reported that a
detailed statement of the lezislative requests of the Univer-
sity of Kentucky for the corning Legislature hod been submitted
to tne Budaet Commission on December 15, 1925.   He stated
that the bici;t Coimmission had maid a visit to the University
for the rlrnose of inaking an inspection, especially of the land
w.ich the University proposed to buy.   He indicated that so
m--r as he oolala tell the Ynemnbers of the Budget Comnra.ission were
inclined to be favorable to the req iests of the University rro-
vided funds can be rrocured.

                                            January 9, 1926

   Dr. F. L, M;cVey, President
   University of Kentucky
   Lexinton, Kentucky

   Dear Doctor IHcVey:

   Dr. W. 0. Bullock, President of the Lexington Board of
   health, has recently asked me to obtain an option on some
   arouna belonging to an estate managed by the Security
   Trust Coiampany and adjoining the girls' dormitory of the
   University, to be used, in the event of its purchase, as
   a site for a hos'-ital for the treatment of contagious dis-
   e~ases.  My first reaction to this request was that it
   right be objectionable and detrimental to the University
   of Kentucky to have such a hospital erected so near to the
   zirls' dormitory, but Dr. Bullock assured me that there
   would be absolutely no danger, and so far as he could see



ought to be no objection on the part of the University
authorities, to such use of the ground.   Dr. Bullock
suggests, in case there is any doubt in your mind on this
point, that you confer with Dr. Rush on the subject.

I am unwilling to take any Steps towards obtaining the
prorerty for the use desired until I know what would be
the attitude of yourself and the other officers of the
University towards the project; blut I am sincerely de-
sirous of doing anything I properly can do to assist in
securing a satisfactory site for such A desirable facility
as the pronosed hospital, and of otherwise aiding Dr.
Bullock in the splendid work he is doing for the banef it of
the entire community.   May I not ask, therefore, that you
will zive this matter prompt consideration and let me hear
from you, a ither by lctter or in person, as early next
week as may be convenient?

With best wishes, I am

Sincerely yours,

C. N. Manning

                                         January 13, 1926

President Frank L. McVey
University of Kentucky

Dear President McVey:

I have been over the ground between the Good Samaritan
Hospital atnd Patterson Hall and have talked with Dr. Bul-
lock relative to the proposed new hospital.    Going south
on Limestorne from the Good Samaritan Hospital we have first
the Nurses' Home which I would judge has a frontage of
about sixty feet.   Next we have a house at 334 Limestone
which I should judge has about the same frontage.    Next
to that is 342 Limestone which I should judge has a front-
age of about one hundred feet, and then Patterson Hall.
On Harrison Avenue there are some dwellings erected on the
rear of the lot which runs through from 342 Limestone and
it is between these houses and the house that faces on
Limestone No. 342 on which it is proposed to locate the
hosrital.   As I understand it, the lot in rear of the 334
Limestone is now owned by the Good Sarmaritan Hospital.

It-would seem, therefore, that I was wrong this afternoon
when I thought that there would be a lot intervening ba-
tween the proposed hospitel and Patterson Hall, for such
is apparently not the case.



  Even though all types of cases of communicable diseases
  were to be treated in the hospital, I do not believe that
  we could find any scientific evidence which would show
  that such conditions might be a menace to the inhabitants
  at Patterson Hall.   There may be, however, conditions
  other than those from the point of view of preventive
  medicine to be considered, but so far as the medical as-
  pect is concerned I do not believe that we could sustain
  any objection to this proposition.

  Very respectfully yours,

  J. E. Rush, M. D.

     The matter was discussed at considerable length and a reso-
lution was offered and passed stating that it was the opinion
of the Executive Committee that it would be unfortunate and un-
wise to have this hospital placed so close to the University

     5. Storm Water Sewer Across University Property in Holly-
wood Addition.   The following communication from Mr. WI. C.
Wilson, Commissioner of Public Works, was read and ordered in-
corporated in the minutes:

                                      January 12, 1926

   President Frank L. MoVey
   University of Kentucky
   Lexington, Kentucky

   My dear President McVey:

   Recently the city let a contract for the construction of
   a storm water sewer from the branhoh at Alford Avenue run-
   ning south t'o the-end of that street, which abuts the Uni-
   versity Experiment Station farm.

   Request is hereby made for permission to go thru the corner
   of the farm to Hollywood addition,   This is essential in
   order that we may make proper disposition of the storm water
   which has been allowed to run off to the Hol22iywood addi-
   tion and the Experiment Station farm.

   Trusting that this permission may be granted within a short
   time, I am

   Yours truly,

   W. C. Wilson
   Commissioner, Public Works



    After discussion the matter wts referred to Dean Thomas P.
Cooper for recommendation.

    6. Claim of The Dayton Structural Steel Company on Gymnas-
ium.  The following communications from the Dayton Structural
Steel Company of Dayton, Ohio, together with President McVey's
reply were read and ordered incorporated in the minutes:

                        Dayton, Ohio
                                           Decnember 29, 1924

   IMr. Frank L . MoVey, President
   The University of Kentucky
   Lexingt on, Kentucky

   Dear Sir:

   About a year ago we entered into a contract trith The
   Blanchard-Crocker Company to furnish certain structural
   steel required in the gymnasium which has teen built on
   the campus of the University.

   For some reason these contractors did not meet with much
   success on this work and although our material was fur-
   nished in an acceptable manner in every respect, there
   still remains unpaid a balance of $5,000.

   VWe did not care to embarrass the University by filing a
   lien and, therefore, refrained from doing so, thinking
   that this matter would be properly straightened out in due
   time .

   It now appears that oome others who furnished material for
   this building did file liens and are pushing their claims.
   We are without legal recourse, but our claim, which is a
   considerable sum, is just as valid as any other from a
   fair business point of view.

   We rxealize that the University and its officers are in no
   way responsible for the situation which has arisen, but
   we would appeal to you to give us whatever assistance you
   can in connection with getting the account settled.    We
   would be pleased to wait a considerable time for our money
   if some arrangement could be made whereby the account
   would be paid off over a long period of time.

   Thanking you for any assistance you may be in a position
   to render us, we are,

   Yours very truly,

   The Dayton Structural Steel Company
   F.  C. W.

                                         January 5, 1926

Mr. Frank L. McVey, President
The University of Kentucky
Lexington, Kentucky

Dear Sir:

On December 29, 1924 we wrote you a letter regarding steel
work which Xie furnished for a gymnasium for the University.
A copy of our original letter is enclosed.

You very kindly acknowledged receipt of our letter but we
have had no further communication from you and are wonder-
ing if you cannot give us some information as to the dis-
position of this matter.

We dislike to bother you with this but our directors meets-
ing is approaching at which time the writer will be expect-
ved to report on the status of this account.

If you can give us any word of any kind it will be greatly

Yours very truly,
The Dayton Structural Steel Company

Mr. F. C. Worbs
Dayton Structural Steel Company
Dayton, Ohio

My dear Mr. Worbs:

The matter of the Gymnasium and the suit against the
Croaker Company for payment to subcontractors has not yet
been settled in the courts.    As soon as I receive the re-
port of the attorney of the University regarding the situa-
!ion I shall be glad to let you know what the court has
done about it.   The matter has been before the master in
chancery for nearly a year.    Some of the claimants are
raising some legal points regarding the situation.     This
is the reason why the matter has not been concluded.

Very truly yours,

Frank L. McVey



     7. Faculty Club.   President McVey stated that he had re-
ceived a report from the Faculty Committee making recomrnmenda-
tions for a Faculty Club.   He stated the Committee proposed
