CONSULTING SERVICES OF ACADEMY FOR EDUCATIONAL

DEVELOPMENT. INC.

(13) The University is reviewing existing procedures and arrangements for University-community communication and interaction in the metropolitan Chicago area and is developing recommendations with respect to them. In addition, studies are being made concerning the establishment of University extension centers in the Chicago metropolitan area outside of the city proper. In these connections it is desired to engage the consulting services of the Academy for Educational Development, Inc., for the calendar year 1973 at a monthly rate not to exceed $1,025 and the provision of office space and secretarial service for one individual. Chancellor Emeritus Norman A. Parker has recently become associated with the firm as director of its Chicago office and would be available for part-time assignment on the proposed arrangement. Accordingly, I recommend approval of a contract with the Academy for Educational Development, Inc., on the above terms.

On motion of Mr. Neal, this contract was awarded by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr. Hughes, Mr.

Neal, Mr. Pogue, Mr. Steger; no, none; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr. Swain, Governor Walker.

RECOMMENDATIONS O F THE UNIVERSITY PATENT COMMITTEE

(14) The University Patent Committee submits the following recommendations relating to patentable inventions by members of the staff.

I concur in these recommendations.

The Committee on Patents of the Board of Trustees has examined the disclosure documents and other background materials related to these inventions and recommends approval.

1. Seven inventions: Method of Constructing Tips for Field Emission Devices, Detector for Liquid Chromatography, Ion Source for Producing High Current Ion Beams of Organic Materials for Mass Spectrometry, Ion Source for Producing High Current Ion Beams of Conducting Liquid Metals or Metallic Alloys for Analytical Purposes, Source for the Production of Neutral or Ionized Beams of Large Molecules, High Current Electron Source, and Ion Source for an Ion 168 [February 21

BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Microprobe—Charles D. Hendricks, Jr., Professor of Electrical and Nuclear Engineering, Urbana-Champaign, and Charles A. Evans, Jr., Senior Research Chemist tn the Materials Research Laboratory, Urbana-Champaign, inventors; developed under the sponsorship of the Advanced Research Projects Agency.

University Patents, Inc., states that a patent application would not be commercially feasible; however, the inventors have indicated that they would like to hold the rights. The University Patent Committee recommends that the rights of the University in these inventions be assigned to the sponsor and, if the sponsor does not wish them, that they be assigned to the inventors.

2. Two inventions: Simulated Laryngeal Model and Simulated Ear Model — Francis L. Lederer, Professor of Otolaryngology, Emeritus, Medical Center, Sydney Kofman, Physician tn the Health Service and Assistant Professor of Medicine in The Abraham Lincoln School of Medicine, Medical Center, and Emil W. Hospodar, Associate Professor of Medical Art in Medical and Dental Illustration, Medical Center, inventors.

Because University Patents, Inc., advises of the apparent existence of a commercially profitable invention, the University Patent Committee recommends that the rights of the University in these inventions be transferred to the University of Illinois Foundation for commercial development and patent application.

3. Novel Means of Refining Glass Melts—Sherman D. Brown, Professor of Ceramic Engineering, Urbana-Champaign, and Frank A. Morrison, Jr., Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Urbana-Champaign, inventors.

The University Patent Committee recommends that the rights of the University in this invention be transferred to the University of Illinois Foundation for development.

4. Improvement in Biological Activity and Introduction of Fluorescence by Reaction of Cytosine Derivatives with Chloroacetaldehyde — Nelson J. Leonard, Professor of Chemistry, Urbana-Champaign, Jorge R. Barrio, Fellow in the Department of Chemistry, Urbana-Champaign, John A. Secrist, III, former Fellow in the Department of Chemistry, Urbana-Champaign, and Laurence G. Dammann, former Research Assistant, Department of Chemistry, Urbana-Champaign, inventors; developed under the sponsorship of the National Institutes of Health.

The University Patent Committee recommends that the rights of the University in this invention be transferred to the University of Illinois Foundation, subject to the rights of the sponsor.

O n motion of Mr. H o w a r d, these recommendations were approved.

DISTRIBUTION O F ROYALTY INCOME

(15) On May 17, 1972, the Board approved a recommendation of the University Patent Committee that the inventions "Illim Spinwhee!: A Chrysanthemum Plant" and "Illini Hot Pink: A Chrysanthemum Plant," both by John Robert Culbert, Professor of Floriculture at Urbana-Champaign, be transferred to the University of Illinois Foundation.

The Foundation has signed licenses with commercial developers of chrysanthemum plants and has received royalties. The University Patent Committee was requested to recommend to the Board of Trustees an equitable share to be paid the inventor. The Committee's view is that IS per cent of the Foundation's net income from the patent would be equitable by virtue of Professor Culbert's long dedication to this project in the face of heavy teaching loads. It appears that the total return from the patent will be modest, although sucessful projects of this type bring the University prestige within a small but significant industry.





Therefore, the Committee has recommended that IS per cent of the net cash income received by the University of Illinois Foundation from the patent be paid to the inventor.

I concur.

O n motion of M r. Forsyth, this recommendation was approved.

SETTLEMENT O F ESTATE O F RICHARD BARNES STITH

(16) Richard Barnes Stith died on September 28, 1964, leaving a will which was admitted to probate in Marshall County, Illinois, and the Jefferson Trust and Savings Bank of Peoria is now acting as Executor and Trustee. Ancillary probate proceedings have also been instituted in the states of Nebraska and Arizona. The 1973] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 169 will leaves a collection of precious stones to the University, makes certain other minor bequests, and provides that during the lifetimes of the decedent's wife and son each is to receive $6,000 annually from the income of the trust of his residuary estate. The trust is to continue in perpetuity and income not applied to these life estates is to be paid equally to the California Institute of Technology, the University of Illinois, the University of Nebraska, the University of Southern California, and the Shriners' Hospital for Crippled Children.

For over six years various items of litigation have been pending. The principal matter being litigated is the question of whether the decendent possessed powers of appointment by virtue of the wills of his mother and his grandfather, and if so, whether such powers had been effectively exercised by the decedent's will. At its November 10, 1966, meeting the Board of _ Trustees authorized the University's appearance in the will construction proceedings which have recently resulted in a trial court decision in favor of the contentions of the charities. The matter is now on appeal to the Appellate Court of Illinois. A will construction suit is also pending in the State of Nebraska.

At various times there have been negotiations for the settlement of all contested claims, and recently the attorneys for each of the interested parties have agreed to recommend to their principals the following settlement arrangements,

which are conditioned upon the courts in Illinois, Nebraska, and Arizona approving the immediate termination of the trust:

(a) The commuted values of successive life estates, created by the decedent's mother's will for two individuals in one parcel of real estate, is to be paid;

(b) A building in Lacon, Illinois, which is used by an individual as a law office as provided in the decedent's will is to be conveyed to that individual;

(c) Each of the decedent's wife and son is to be paid $15,000 in complete satisfaction of any claim for arrearages in trust income payments since the decedent's death;

(d) The balance of the net estate (including presently accumulated income and income to be produced during the settlement period) would be distributed 25 per cent to the son, 15 per cent to the widow, and the balance of 60 per cent among the five charities; and (e) All court costs, expenses, and attorneys' fees of each recipient are to be borne and paid by the recipient out of the respective shares of the settlement.

The arrangement contemplates that all assets would be liquidated as expeditiously as possible, and that the estate would pay all debts, claims, administration and liquidation expenses, fees of the executors and trustee and their attorneys, as well as the guardian ad litem fees. Each party's ultimate share of the settlement would be charged with any state inheritance taxes, federal_ estate taxes, and any penalties and interest thereon attributable on a pro rata basis to such party's share.

Fifty thousand dollars of each of the son's and the widow's^ share would be paid immediately and would be recognized by all parties as being applicable to the widow's and son's claim for attorneys' fees. After making the $50,000 and the $15,000 payments to the wife and son referred to above, $30,000 would be paid immediately to each of the charities from its share. Much of the estate consists of farm lands in Illinois and Nebraska of an estimated^value in excess of $1,000,000, and it is anticipated that a considerable period of time will elapse before all the property can be liquidated.

In view of the costly and protracted litigation which has already occurred and the prospects of the same continuing, special counsel for the University has recommended, and the University Counsel concurs, that settlement of all matters involving the estate be approved on substantially the terms outlined above, and that they be authorized to take such actions as may be necessary, including the execution of appropriate documents, to accomplish the same.

I concur.

On motion of Mr. Howard, this recommendation was approved.

AIR CONDITIONING FOR ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE BUILDING.

Neal, Mr. Pogue, Mr. Steger; no, none; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr. Swain, Governor Walker.

EMPLOYMENT O F ARCHITECTS AND ENGINEERS FOR REMODELING

SPACE IN THE SECOND UNIT DENTISTRY-MEDICINE-PHARMACY

BUILDING. MEDICAL CENTER

(18) The President of the University has recommended, and the Committee on Buildings and Grounds has approved, the employment of A. M. Kinney Associates, Inc., Skokie, for professional architectural and engineering services for remodeling space vacated by the College of Dentistry in the Second Unit Dentistry-MedicinePharmacy Building at the Medical Center campus. This space will be assigned to various departments and schools within the College of Medicine.

LEASE OF SPACE FOR CENTRAL ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE.

AREA HEALTH EDUCATION CENTERS

(19) The Chancellor at the Medical Center campus, in consultation with the appropriate campus administrative officers, recommends the execution of a lease with Helmsley-Spear of Illinois, Inc., managing agents for the Jackson-Franklin Building, 309 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois, for 2,875 square feet of office space.

The lease is for a period commencing March 1, 1973, and continuing through September 30, 1977, with the right to terminate if federal funding for the program is suspended. The initial rental is $14,375 per year or $5 per square foot. This rate is considered to be reasonable for the location and use of the space involved. Rent for subsequent years may be adjusted upward based upon increased operating costs and taxes, with an annual limit of 10 per cent on each.

The space is being remodeled without additional cost. All costs are included in the above rental except electrical use which is estimated to be $720 per year.

The space will provide administrative offices for the staff responsible for organizing and coordinating the Area Health Education Centers program pursuant to the University's contract with the National Institutes of Health. The space will provide offices for ten administrative staff and six supporting clerical personnel.

Funds are provided in the Area Health Education Centers contract and are available for the initial rental period of March 1, 1973, through October 31, 1973.

I concur.

On motion of Mr. Steger, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr.

Hughes, Mr. Neal, Mr. Pogue, Mr. Steger; no, none; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr. Swain, Governor Walker.
