Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that transfers be approved.



4. Retirement Payments Doris A. Farrell



Mrs. Farrell was employed by the University on October 5,

1952, as Manager of the Snack Bar and made regular payments

to the State Retirement Fund until June 1954, when she was

terminated as a full-time employee. She was re-employed in

September 1954, on a part-time basis, and through misunder-

standing, did not participate in the Retirement Program.

In November, 1956, Mrs. Farrell was again put on full-time

basis and started to contribute to the Retirement Program.

Mrs. Farrell is now requesting an adjustment for the interim

period, September, 1954 though October, 1956, which would

require the sum of $178.52 from Mrs. Farrell and a matching

amount from the University, to be paid from this year's

staff benefit account. President Armstrong recommended

approval.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Crumley, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the adjustment in

retirement payments for Mrs. Farrell, explained above,

be approved.



5. Military Department Activity Fund



President Armstrong presented a request from the Professor

of Miliary Science, and recommended approval, as follows:



a. That funds held in the Student Military Deposit Account

for 1959 and earlier years, for students no longer en-

rolled in the University, be declared foreit.



b. That net proceeds of this forfeiture be transferred to

a new Agency Account entitled, "Military Department

Activity Fund", under the control of the Professor of

Military Science.



c. That a policy be approved whereby each year, in closing

the books, unclaimed deposits of students who have not

been enrolled in the University for two years, auto-

matically are considered forfeit and transferred to this

new fund.



Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the "Military Department Activity Fund"

be established as above described.

furthering the objectives herein stated.



1. To provide a means whereby the University of Nevada

proval of the Nevada Federation of Women's Clubs must

tee is not in agreement with the entire report.

Cemetery property and the possibility that the Univer-

sity might be able to acquire it through Urban Renewal,

which would reduce considerably the cost to the Univer-

sity. President Armstrong read the following letter to

the Regents and explained that the increase in price is

due to the fact that the cost of grave removals will run

terested and as desiring to pursue the matter further.

There followed discussion as to the extent the Univer-

sity should attempt to secure help from Urban Renewal.

other buildings not be so designated; and that the word

"Hall" be removed from the names of buildings now in

use, except in the case of Dormitories.

James G. Scrugham Engineering-Mines Building".



f) That the "new" Engineering building be named for Stanley

Palmer, Frederick Sibley or Horace Boardman.



g) That the Nevada Southern Library be named "Centennial

Library" subject to discussion with the Las Vegas mem-

bers of the Board.



h) That the old Clark Library building be called "The Alice

Mc Manus Clark Administration Building".



i) That the new Social Science building be named "Stewart

Hall" to retain the traditional name of Senator Stewart.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried

unanimously that the new Engineering-Mines building be

named "The James G. Scrugham Engineering-Mines Building" in

honor of one of Nevada's most outstanding individuals, who

was Governor of Nevada, United States Senator and Dean of

Engineering at the University of Nevada.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously that the "new" Engineering building be named

"The Stanley G. Palmer Mechanical Engineering Building".



Motion by Mrs. Magee was seconded by Mr. Germain, to accept

the recommendation that the Women's Dormitory be called

"Sage Hall". The motion lost by show of hands; "yes" - 3;

"no" - 6.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

cussed, and the Las Vegas Regents were asked to bring fur-

ther suggestions to the next meeting.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the entire married housing group be called

"University Village".



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

unanimously that the name of Alice Mc Manus Clark (or a

portion of the name) be retained in the name for the build-

ing when the old Library building is remodeled for use as

an Administration building, to retain the identity of the

original gift.



11. Mural for Nevada Southern Library



Mr. Grant introduced a representative from a Los Angeles

firm specializing in murals, so that he might discuss with

the Regents (with the use of slides) his work in murals.

In a meeting of April 8, 1961, report was made to the

Regents of a possible gift in the amount of approximately

$6500 for a mural in the Library building on the Nevada

Southern Campus. This sum was raised by a benefit perform-

ance put on by the American Legion, the Jewish War Veterans,

and the Veterans of Foreign Wars, for a "Four Chaplains

Memorial" to be given in honor of Ernie Cragin, well known

in Las Vegas for his work among people of all faiths, and

to memorialize the four Chaplains who went down when the

troop transport U. S. S. Dorchester was torpedoed in the

last World War. Mr. James Mc Daniels, architect, was pres-

ent also and discussed the matter from his standpoint.

Both he and the representative of the art firm stressed the

desirability of having the mural abstract in nature so as

not to detract from the architecture of the structure. Mr.

Licker, representing the Veterans of Foreign Wars, was at

the meeting and spoke of the desire of the organization to

be the first to honor the four Chaplains in this way. Mr.

Charles Ross, Assistant Professor of Art at Nevada Southern,

expressed the belief that a mural must be studied with ex-

treme care, if any is to be used at all, so as not to de-

tract from the architecture of the Library by introducing

too vividly the theme being memorialized. Suggestion was

made that the artist attempt an abstract with concrete

shapes and forms in the foreground.



Mr. Grant suggested that sketches be presented for consid-

eration of the Regents, which the artist estimated would

cost around $200 and which would be absorbed in the price

of the mural if it is accepted.



Discussion followed as to whether the mural should be in

the seminar room or in the reading room of the Library.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the Regents proceed to

get three sketches from which to choose, at a maximum cost

of $200, which would be paid from the President's Discre-

tionary Fund, the mural to be placed in the reading room of

the Nevada Southern Library.



Mr. Licker offered, on behalf of the Veterans of Foreign

Wars, to pay the cost of the sketches.



Mr. Grant asked Mr. Ross to serve on an advisory committee

on the project, along with Dean Carlson, and others. Mr.

Ross accepted.



12. Building Committee Report



Dr. Anderson referred again to the minutes of the meeting of

the Building Committee with representatives of the firm of

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, and asked for further questions,

if any. There being none,



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the report of the Building Committee and

the minutes of the meeting of December 18, 1961, as follows,

be accepted.



BOARD OF REGENTS BUILDING COMMITTEE

December 18, 1961



Present: Dr. Anderson, Mr. Germain, Dr. Lombardi, Mrs.

Magee, President Armstrong, Vice President Young, Engineer

Rogers, Planning Coordinator Hollett, Mr. William Hancock,

State Planning Board; Mr. John Rodgers and Mr. David Hurley,

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.



1. President Armstrong reported that the representative

from Skidmore, Owings & Merrill had prepared a redraft

of their preliminary reports, "Space Requirements of

Academic and Non-Academic Facilities for the University

of Nevada, Reno Campus, 1972', and "Las Vegas Campus",

had reviewed these reports with the Academic Committee

and with individual Deans who had additional questions,

and were now ready to present the report for the con-

sideration of the Regents.



2. Mr. Rodgers explained that the purpose of this report

is to project the space needs of the University, in an

approximate manner, to serve as a basis for actual

facility planning. He displayed a three-dimensional

map of the Reno Campus, showing existing and planned

facilities for academic purposed, University services,

and housing and also indicating future space needed in

these three catagories to support 7,000 FTE. He stated

that it was not necessary to be exact in the figures

used at this point and that changes might be made along

the way. This is a progress report for internal pur-

poses and is not intended, by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

or the State Planning Board, to be used for any purposes

other than assisting in the development of the Master

Plan. A final report is called for at the time of the

completion of the Master Plan, and this would incorpo-

rate accurate, agreed-upon figures.



Space needs not reflected in these projections include

a Laboratory School for the College of Education, an

Audio-Visual Center, Desert Research Institute space,

and Statewide Services space. Also not reflected are

courses taught off Campus and replacement of antiquated

space.



Mr. Rodgers also presented a similar three-dimensional

map of the Las Vegas Campus for an enrollment of 1700

FTE.



3. Discussion included the following points:



a. Mr. Germain reaised the question as to whether or

not Mackay Stadium would have to be moved. Mr.

Rodgers said that Skidmore, Owings & Merrill would

study this and make a recommendation to the Regents.

He pointed out that the Stadium was now located in

an area most desirable for more academic uses.



b. Dr. Armstrong asked about the possible acquisition

of the Roman Catholic cemetery to the west. Mr.

Rodgers said that the cemetery and other land be-

tween North Virginia and North Sierra in the vicin-

ity of the cemetery appeared to qualify for Urban

Redevelopment and that this might be the best way

for the University to acquire this area. The land

falls within the "five minute circle" recommended

for academic facilities. Engineer Rogers reported

on the financing possible through Urban Redevelop-

ment. He said that we will have to get the City

to participate in the financing, and he recommended

that we get the land appraised. Mr. Rodgers said

that the area should be blocked out in several ways

to indicate how the University would use it and to

provide a basis for approaching City Officials.



4. Dr. Armstrong read a letter from Mr. William Hancock,

as follows:



December 15, 1961



Dr. Charles J. Armstrong, President

University of Nevada Master Plan

University Station Reno and Las Vegas

Reno, Nevada Campuses



Dear Dr. Armstrong:



On December 14, 1961, the Northern Executive Committee

of the Nevada State Planning Board met with Mr. John B.

Rodgers of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill to discuss the

progress of the two Master Plans for the University.



As a result of that meeting, the Committee unanimously

passed the following motion:



The Northern Executive Committee of the Nevada State

Planning Board recognizes that the findings contain-

ed in the preliminary reports of space requirements

of academic and non-academic facilities for the Reno

and Las Vegas Campuses as prepared by Skidmore,

Owings & Merrill pertain only to the further devel-

opment of the Master Plan and as such cannot be used

as a rigid criteria for Capitol Improvement program-

ming. The Committee also recognizes that the pro-

cedure established in these reports is flexible and

that the Master Planning criteria reflected therein

must be reviewed and recaptiulated periodically to

incorporate changes in both the physical plant and

changes effected by the University in the establish-

ed educational programs of both Campuses.



As required by the Agreement, the Committee recom-

mends that the University approve the preliminary

reports for the purposes intended, thereby per-

mitting the commencement of the necessary physical

planning.



The Committee expressed a strong desire to realize the

completed Master Plans as soon as possible.



Very truly yours,

/s/ William E. Hancock

Secretary



WEH:plr



cc: Mr. Gene F. Empey

Mr. C. V. Isbell

Mr. I. J. Sandorf

Mr. Bruce R. Thompson

Dr. Kenneth Young

Mr. John B. Rodgers



5. Dr. Armstrong recommended that the reports be approved

for the purposes intended. Dr. Lombardi moved, Mr.

Germain seconded, that the reports (with a 10% increase

in the figures, as suggested by Mr. Rodgers) be recom-

mended for approval by the Board of Regents. Engineer

Rogers stated that he has some apprehensions about the

figures included in the reports. He pointed out that

the figures used in Master Planning by several other

institutions (Alaska, New Mexico, California) would

provide a greater amount of net square feet than would

the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill figures. Mr. Rodgers

explained that different elements (for example, Physical

Education and Military Science) are included or excluded

in the difference reports so that it is difficult to

compare them. It was agreed that every effort should be

made by the University Engineer's Office and Skidmore,

Owings & Merrill to work out any differences between now

and the January 6th meeting of the Board of Regents.



Action: The motion was passed unanimously.



6. Dr. Anderson reported to the Committee on suggestions

submitted for building and street names. The following

recommendations were made:



(a) The James G. Scrugham Engineering-Mines building.



(b) Palmer, Sibley or Boardman for the new Engineering

building, to be known as the Mechanical Engineering

building.



(c) Sage Hall for the new Women's Residence Hall, with

future ones to be named after Nevada plants.



(d) White Pine Hall for the new Men's Residence Hall,

with future ones to be named after Nevada counties.



(e) The Nevada Southern Library possibly to be named

Centennial Library (subject to the reaction of

other Clark County Regents).



(f) Married student housing to be named University

Village.



(g) Clark Administration building for the old Library.



(h) Stewart Hall for the Social Science building.



7. Dr. Armstrong was asked to write the City Council again

concerning the possible renaming of Center Street to

University Avenue.



Kenneth Young

Acting Secretary

SOUTHERN REGIONAL DIVISION



Paul C. Harris, Jr., Department of Speech and English

John N. Butler, Department of Metallurgy

Robert C. Horton, Nevada Bureau of Mines

Laurence H. Beal, Nevada Bureau of Mines



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that tenure be granted to the above individuals,

effective July 1, 1962.



President Armstrong also presented recommendations for

tenure as approved by the Academic Committee on January 4,

1962, as follows:



Thomas D. O'Brien, Professor of Chemistry, Graduate School

Wendell A. Mordy, Professor of Atmospheric Physics, Desert

Research Institute

Floyd C. Scritchfield, Associate Professor of Education,

Nevada Southern Regional Division



Discussion followed concerning tenure for Professor Mordy

and Dean O'Brien in view of the shortness of their period

of service at the University of Nevada.



The meeting recessed at 12:45 P.M. for luncheon.



The recessed meeting was called to order at 2:30 P.M. by Chairman

Grant.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that Floyd C. Scritchfield be granted tenure

effective July 1, 1962.



Further discussion by Dr. Armstrong brought out the fact

that Dean O'Brien and Professor Mordy had been approved in

regular meeting of the Academic Committee and that the pro-

cedure followed was in accord with the University Code,

adopted by the Board of Regents. The Regents went on record

as wishing to discourage the faculty from bringing forth

recommendations for tenure when period of service at the

University of Nevada is short.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried with

a show of hands that tenure be granted to Professor Mordy

and Dean O'Brien effective July 1, 1962. Vote: 5 in favor,

3 opposed; Mr. Germain passed his vote.



20. Working Budget, Funds 1, 2 and 3 for 1962-63 Fiscal Year



Copies of the proposed budget had previously been mailed to

the Regents for their information and study. President

Armstrong summarized the proposed budget, including the need

for an increase in registration fees and out-of-state tui-

tion, with the assistance of graphic slides. He noted that

out-of-state students now comprise 27% of the matriculated

enrollment on the Reno Campus and 23% of the total enroll-

ment on both Campuses; and that 32% of the new students en-

rolling for the Fall semester, 1961, were non-residents.

It is expected that the new tuition rates will cause a

leveling off of this increase in out-of-state students.



The proposed budget requests expenditure authoriztion of

$6,678,633 for General University Operation (Fund No. 1),

$271,346 for U. S. D. A. State Agricultural Experiment

Stations (Fund No. 2, Federal Monies), and $230,256 for

U. S. D. A. Agricultural Extension Service (Fund No. 3,

Federal Monies) for a total budget of $7,180,234 for the

1962-63 fiscal year.



President Armstrong stated that after thorough review of

the Dean's requests he had cut $352,861 from the $7,031,494

requested for Fund No. 1, but that his request was still

$376,968 more than the estimated revenue available at pres-

ent rates for fees and tuition; hence, the recommendation

for increases in these rates.



The budget calls for expenditure of $490,447 more than is

included in Section 1 of the Authorized Expenditure Act of

the last legislative session. The statute provides that

the Director of the Budget, with the approval of the Gover-

nor, may authorize the augmentation of the amount authorized

for expenditure by a given Department or Institution.



Fee and tuition changes recommended are as follows, to be

effective beginning with the Fall semester, 1962:

Increase over present schedule 376,968



Motion was made by Mr. Crumley and seconded by Mr. Arnold,

that the budget and the fee and tuition schedule be approved

and that the Administration be authorized to request of the

Governor authority to spend additional amount of $490,447.



* Effective with Spring semester 1962, increased to $117.00

in accord with item 20 of these minutes.



**Would have been effective September 1962, and would have

been refundable if student admitted.



In further discussion, Mr. Germain noted the amount indicat-

ed for an Assistant Dean at Nevada Southern and expressed

his belief that it was not sufficient. Mr. Crumley called

attention to the fact that salary matters will be reviewed

by the Regents' Salary Committee and certain salary items

will be given special consideration.



Motion carried by roll call vote, with Regents Elwell and

Germain voting "no" and all other Regents voting "aye".



21. Non-Profit Educational Corporation



President Armstrong presented a proposal made by Mr. C. D.

Brown, as Chairman of the Endowment and Development Commit-

tee for Nevada Southern, for the establishment of a "Nevada

Southern Foundation, Inc. for the purpose of receiving and

accepting bequests, contributions, gifts and donations for

educational purposes, and to manage, invest and disburse

funds acquired by the Corporation provided the receipt and

disbursement of such funds shall be for the use and benefit

of, and for the upbuilding and welfare of, the Southern

Regional Division of the University". Mr. Porter reported

that there were certain tax aspects which needed further

study. Mr. Grant asked Mr. Porter to review the proposal

and to give an opinion in writing for their guidance,

should such a Foundation become necessary or desirable in

the future.



22. Citizens' Advisory Committee, Mackay School of Mines

23. Trinity Church Property, Las Vegas



Dr. Armstrong discussed recent developments. It had been

agreed that appraisal of the land would be made by two

independent appraisers, and this has now been accomplished.

A matter has come to the attention of the Regents and the

Administration regarding a proposed flood control program

which might affect the use of the land. This was discussed

and Mr. Rogers showed on a sketch of the area where the pro-

posed drainage canal would cut through University property.



Mr. Grant suggested that the Board go on record as request-

ing the President to work with the County Commissioners and

the Engineers to attempt to have the proposed drainage canal

straightened so as not to hamper the use of the northwest

area of the Campus.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

unanimously that the President write a letter embodying the

request that the canal be straightened, and asking that no

action be taken by the County Commissioners in this matter

without a hearing by University Officials.



24. President's Informal Report



President Armstrong reported for information the following

items:



a) Minutes of the Board of Regents have been micro-filmed

and the micro-films are stored in a fireproof safe in

the Office of the Business Manager. Bound volumes of

the original minutes are stored in a fireproof safe in

the Office of the President.



b) Two copies of a report were received from Cresap, Mc

Cormick & Paget by Mr. Crumley, constituting a draft of

the proposed revisions in policy and procedure for the

Board of Regents. President Armstrong, Dr. Young, and

Mr. Humphrey have reviewed the report, and one copy

will be circulated among the Regents, with action con-

cerning it to be taken at a later meeting.



c) Leave of absence records are now being kept and are

subject to periodic audit by the Personnel Office and/or

the Business Office in keeping with the Policy on Leaves

of Absences and Related Matters adopted by the Board of

Regents.



d) Cornerstone ceremonies will take place at 1:30 P.M. on

Sunday, January 7, 1962, for the Science Technology

building and for the Physical Education building on the

Las Vegas Campus. Masonic Lodge has charge of the cere-

monies. Dean Carlson will be the orator.



25. Association of Governing Boards



A meeting of the Association of Governing Boards of State

Institutions and another "School for Regents" will be held

in San Francisco March 19-21. Mrs. Magee and Dr. Lombardi,

both of whom have attended such meetings, urged that members

of the Board plan to attend.



26. Dr. Anderson's Informal Report



Dr. Anderson reported informally the following:



a) Since the University, as a public service and in its

function as a cultural center of the State, should

make every effort to inform the public of events which

are to take place on the Campus of a cultural nature,

suggested approaching the newspapers to see if they

would be willing to carry regularly a calendar of such

events at the University. Mr. Laxalt will attempt to

improve such channels of information to the public.



b) That a continual history be kept of the University of

Nevada, so that the history will be complete and ac-

curate. He suggested the attempt be made to formulate

a chapter each year.



c) That the University become the "history center" for the

State of Nevada, so that the history of the State will

be recorded promptly and accurately. The matter was

discussed and it was agreed to give it further thought.

It would be necessary, it was noted, first to talk with

the Governor, and secondly to seek an appropriation

from the Legislature.



d) The Western Commission of Higher Education will hold a

meeting in Denver, Colorado, on January 12 and 13 on

"Regional Manpower in the West". A study was made which

showed that there may be a shortage of manpower in the

years to come in the medical fields. The Commonwealth

Fund is financing the meeting to study the advisability

of a Medical School supported by the States of Wyoming,

Nevada, Idaho and Montana (none of which have Medical

Schools at the present time). Dr. Anderson asked for

views from the Regents as to whether or not they believe

Nevada might be interested so that he might report at

the meeting. After some discussion, Mr. Grant asked

Dr. Anderson to bring back to the Board more detailed

information on which the Regents might base their dis-

cussion and opinion.



27. Next Meeting



The next meeting of the Board was set for Saturday, March 3,

1962, in Reno, at which time salary recommendations will be

presented to the Board.



The meeting adjourned at 4:25 P.M.
