                       REGENTS MEETING
                       January 7, 1933

The Board of Regents met in the Office of President Clark at 10
o'clock Saturday morning, January 7, 1933.  There were present
Judge Brown, Chairman, Mr. Williams and Dr. Olmsted.  Absent:
Mr. Wingfield and Mr. Ross.

Mr. Puett of the Highway Engineer's Office appeared before the
Board and presented a highway matter which was taken up on the
course of business.

The minutes of the December 3rd meeting were approved by the
following vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Dr. Olmsted          Aye

The President recommended the adoption of the following plan
which had been worked out by Dean Stewart of the College of Agri-
culture for the handling of courses in Poultry and Dairying for
the year 1933-34, it being desired to try out this arrangement
for a 2-year period with the thought that it may, if satisfactory
then become a permament arrangement:

a.  That C. J. Thornton be elected Instructor in Poultry Husband-
    ry beginning with the Fall of next year to teach one course
    each semester at a stipend of $200 per semester, together
    with not to exceed $25 per semester for transportation of
    students, and $100 per year ($50 per semester) for use of his
    plant's poultry and equipment.  It is understood that for
    this sum Mr. Thornton will also add to his flocks turkeys,
    so that our students may study two types of birds, both good
    income producers in Nevada.

b.  That G. Ernest Brooks be elected Instructor in Dairy Husband-
    ry to give two courses each semester at a stipend of $400
    per semester, together with not to exceed $50 per semester
    for student transportation, he agreeing to accept 5 1/2 cents
    mileage, and with understanding that $100 per semester is to
    be paid to the Brooks and Peckham Model Dairy Farm (Rewana
    Farm) for the use of the Model Dairy stock and equipment in
    connection with these courses.  It is understood that a herd
    of Guernseys will be added to the present Holstein herd so
    that students may be assured the study of two main dairy
    types of cattle.

Dr. Olmstead moved the approval of the above arrangements.  Vote:

President Clark presented the offer of the Labor Union painters
and carpenters to cooperate in every possible way with the Uni-

credit may be secured in connection with each bill for materials.

working with Superintendent Lynch, to have repair and improvement
jobs done on the Campus in connection with this proffer of free
