ESTATE OF AL1FF Z. WILLARD (24) Under the Last Will and Testament of Aliff Z. Willard, deceased, a trust of the residuary estate is created with the Valley National Bank and Trust Company of Tucson, Arizona, with the decedent's sister as the life income beneficiary.

The Will further provides that "in the event that a trust has been created for the benefit of my sister and there should be monies remaining in said trust account at the time of the death of my sister, I hereby leave said monies in said trust for the creation of a scholarship fund to be established at the University of Illinois with the College of Agriculture. Such scholarship foundation shall be in the name of my grandfather, Jefferson G. Willard. That said scholarship fund is not a loan but is to be given as gifts to deserving students who are undergraduate, male and unmarried. That this scholarship fund is to be controlled and regulated under the rules and laws of the University of Illinois in regard to such scholarship funds." The principal asset of the estate is approximately 320 acres of land in Macon County, Illinois.

The Citizen's National Bank of Decatur, administrator with the will annexed of Aliff Z. Willard, deceased, has filed a complaint to construe the Will in the Circuit Court of Macon County, Illinois, and the University of Illinois has been named as a defendant in the proceedings. The issues raised by the will construction proceeding include whether or not, at the death of the life tenant, the University is to receive (1) only the "monies" then in the trust, or (2) only the portion of the "monies" then in the trust which does not represent the proceeds of any sale of real property subsequent to the decedent's death, or (3) distribution of all property then in the trust, free of the trust, or (4) distributions of income from the trustee in perpetuity, or (S) nothing.

In addition the administrator with the will annexed has filed a petition to sell real estate in the estate and, further, a petition to pay income to the trustee.

The University Counsel has stated that in his opinion the correct construction of the Will is that the University is entitled to receive all property in the trust at the death of the life tenant, including the real estate, and recommends that he be authorized to take such steps as are necessary or appropriate, including the employment of special counsel, to represent the University and to protect the University's interest in the proceedings.

I concur.

On motion of Mr. Swain, authority was given as recommended by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr.

Hughes, Mr. Livingston, Mr. Neal, Mrs. Rader, Mr. Swain; no, none;

absent, Dr. Bakalis, Mr. Steger, Governor Walker.

On motion of Mr. Swain, the Board adjourned.

442 BOARD OF TRUSTEES [February 20


In the process of preparation of the agenda for the January 16 meeting of the Board, it became apparent that there was an exceptionally small number of items and that all major items could be deferred until February. Under these circumstances, President Hughes has determined that the amount and nature of the business to be presented is not sufficient to justify a meeting and he has, in accordance with the By-Laws of the Board, cancelled the January 16 meeting.

The next regular meeting of the Board will be held at 10 a.m. on February 20 at the Chicago Circle campus rather than at the Medical Center as previously announced.1



Mr. Hughes introduced the student members of the Board of Trustees from the Chicago campuses: Mr. Kenneth Kosten, Medical Center campus, and Mr. Lloyd Zimmerman, Chicago Circle campus.


President Hughes announced there would be a meeting of the Buildings and Grounds Committee following the regular Board meeting.


The Board considered the following reports and recommendations from the President of the University.

President Corbally presented a report on selected topics of current interest, copies of which were distributed at the meeting, and a copy was filed with the Secretary of the Board.

Report on the Selection of Student Non-Voting Members of the University of Illinois Board of Trustees, 1973-74 President Corbally presented a report on the selection of non-voting student members of the Board of Trustees. A copy of the report is filed with the Secretary.

Report on 1974-75 Budget Matters President Corbally commented briefly on various matters related to the 1974-75 budget.

Peoria School of Medicine — Site Contract Modifications President Corbally presented the following report and recommendations regarding site contract modifications for the Peoria School of Medicine.

(1) At its meeting on November 21, 1973, the Board of Trustees adopted a resolution designating approximately 25 acres in an urban renewal area in the City of Peoria as the site for the Peoria School of Medicine, subject to certain conditions being met by the City of Peoria within certain specified times. These conditions incorporated representations and assurances previously made by the City of Peoria and included (1) acquisition by the City of title to a designated area of approximately 5.67 acres for the construction site on or before June 1, 1974; (2) completion of demolition and construction site preparation by the City, and delivery of title and possession thereof to the University, on or before September 1, 1974; (3) completion of demolition and site preparation by the City of the balance of the 25-acre site, and delivery of title and possession thereof to the The meeting place was subsequently changed to Peoria, Illinois.

University, on or before January 1, 1976; and (4) transfer of title to the entire tract to the University by the City at a total cost to the State of not more than $280,000. The resolution contemplated that the City and the University would enter into an agreement on or before January 1, 1974, for the acquisition of the urban renewal site.

The Board of Trustees had previously, at its meeting on May 17, 1972, designated approximately 25.8 acres of land at the intersection of Route 74 and Gale Avenue in Peoria as the site for the Peoria School of Medicine (the Gale Avenue site). The Board also authorized a lease and option agreement for the Gale Avenue site under which the University leased the property for one year commencing September 28, 1972, at an annual rental of $10,000, with options exercisable at least 30 days prior to the commencement of an option year to continue the lease for two additional one-year periods at the same annual rental.

The first lease option was exercised and the lease will expire September 27, 1974, unless the second lease option to extend is exercised at least 30 days prior to that date. The agreement further provides an option to purchase the Gale Avenue site while the lease is in effect at a price of $275,000 less $1,000 paid upon execution of the agreement, and less any sums previously paid as rental. The November 21, 1973, resolution of the Board with respect to the new urban renewal site states that it is the intent of the Board of Trustees that, should the time schedule for that site not be adhered to, the Board will consider again designating the Gale Avenue site for the Peoria School of Medicine.

Since November 21, 1973, negotiations concerning the urban renewal site have proceeded between representatives of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Capital Development Board, the City of Peoria, and the University. As a result, certain modifications of the November 21, 1973, Board of Trustees resolution with respect to the urban renewal site acquisition contract

are now recommended, as follows:
