Mr. Rogers made a trip to the San Francisco office to dis-
cuss these projects with the Housing and Home Finance
Agency. From their review, some changes needed to be made
and are being effected. Also, some legal problems have been
raised by the HHFA which are being worked out with the co-
operation of the State Planning Board. The following reso-
lution was read by Dr. Armstrong, who recommended approval
by the Board:

RESOLUTION #59-4

Approving the Completed Planning Documents Prepared
with an Advance From the United States of America Under
the Terms of Public Law 560, 83rd Congress of the United
States, as amended.

WHEREAS, the University of Nevada accepted an offer
from the United States Government for an advance for
preparation of planning documents pertaining to a public
work described as Men's Dormitory, Dining Hall, Housing
for Married Students and Faculty; and

WHEREAS, Vhay & Grow, Frank Green, Ferris & Erskine was
engaged to prepare the planning documents for the afore-
said public work, and said architect and/or engineer has
completed the documents and submitted them for approval;
and

WHEREAS, the completed planning documents have been
carefully studied and are considered to comprise ade-
quate planning of the public work essential to the
community and within the financial ability of the Uni-
versity of Nevada to construct;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Regents,
the governing body of said applicant, that the planning
documents submitted by Vhay & Grow, Frank Green, Ferris
& Erskine as the basis for construction of the Men's
Dormitory, Dining Hall, Housing for Married Students and
Faculty dated November 6, October 24, October 1, 1958 in
connection with Housing and Home Finance Agency Project
No. Nev. 26-P-3002 be and the same are hereby approved,
and that certified copies of this resolution be filed
with the Housing and Home Agency.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the resolution be adopted for requesting
"Advances for Public Works Planning".

A regulation of the HHFA is that funds advanced by that
agency must be established in a separate bank account. Mr.
Hayden requested that the North Virginia Street Branch of
the Nevada Bank of Commerce be so designated.

Motion by Mr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the Comptroller be authorized to open an
account in the North Virginia Street Branch of the Nevada
Bank of Commerce for deposit of funds advanced by HHFA for
advance planning.

15. Orr Ditch Siphon

Mr. Rogers reported informally on the Orr Ditch siphon,
money for which was appropriated at the last session of the
Legislature with the provision that the City of Reno share
in the expense. On January 6, bids were opened and the low
bid was $78,950. The construction budget was $68,300. The
matter will now be taken up with the City of Reno with a
request that they increase the amount of their participa-
tion. The State Planning Board will transfer additional
money from the Contingency Fund to make it possible to
accept the bid.

16. Student Union Finance Matter

Mr. Hayden reported. Upon authority of the Board of Re-
gents, $18,000 was used from endowment funds for the Student
Union building, along with matching State money, so that the
bid could be accepted and the contract let for the Jot
Travis Student building. On January 21 the Student Union
Board authorized installation of kitchen equipment and
authorized payment from the Student Union Student Fund for
that purpose, in the belief that no other money was avail-
able and because the equipment was necessary. A refund
has now been received from the State Treasurer in the amount
of $2,964.01 from Contingency Funds. Mr. Rogers discussed
the request of the Student Union Board that the refund be
used to cover their expenditure which was made in the belief
that the State Planning Board did not have the money in its
Contingency Fund. Mr. Hayden asked for instruction as to
the use of the reverted money, in view of the fact that
money from gift money under his control had been advanced.

Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
unanimously that the invoices in the amount of $2,778.18
be paid out of the reversion money.

17. Nevada Art Gallery

As instructed by the Board of Regents at their meeting on
November 15, 1958, President Armstrong requested the At-
torney General for advice on the manner and procedure to be
used in returning property to the Nevada Art Gallery which
had previously been deeded to the University by that organi-
zation. The Attorney General advised that legislative ac-
tion was not required, and prepared a resolution for adop-
tion by the Board of Regents, as follows:

RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF REGENTS,
UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA, AUTHORIZING
THE RECONVEYANCE OF LAND TO NEVADA
ART GALLERY, INC. - #59-5

WHEREAS, the Nevada Art Gallery, Inc., was incorporated
under the laws of the State of Nevada as a nonprofit,

after referred to as the "Art Gallery"; and

land were executed by the owners to the Art Gallery
as grantee, beginning in October, 1931, and ending
in October, 1935, which several deeds were delivered
to the Art Gallery, and by it duly recorded; and

WHEREAS, in varying language the deeds to the Art
Gallery each contained language constituting covenants
of conditions subsequent, that is, that if an Art Gal-
lery was not constructed on the lands donated and con-
veyed to the Art Gallery within a reasonable time there-
after, then the lands would revert to the donor (grant-
or) or heirs, as the case might be; and

WHEREAS, the Art Gallery then commenced negotiations
with the University of Nevada, through its Board of
Regents, to the end that it accept title to the parcels
of real property thus obtained by the Art Gallery, with
the convenants, conditions, restrictions and limitations
to apply to the University, under which the respective
parcels of land had been obtained; and

WHEREAS, having been so persuaded, the Nevada State
Legislature of 1943 enacted Chapter 8, which authorized
the Board of Regents to accept for the University, from
the Art Gallery, a deed or deeds to the land in ques-
tion, in trust, as a site for the proposed Art Gallery
building, at the same time in said statute negativing
any obligation on the part of the State to expend any
public funds for such purpose, which chapter was duly
signed into law; and

WHEREAS, on June 10, 1949, the Art Gallery conveyed
by grant, bargain and sale deed, to the University of
Nevada, all of the lots and parcels of land theretofore
acquired by it for Art Gallery purposes, as aforesaid,
but neglected to place in such conveyance any rever-
sionary clause or covenant of condition subsequent, in
accord with the conditions recited in the several deeds
by which the Art Gallery had received the several con-
veyances of real property, which deed was accepted by
the University and duly recorded; and

WHEREAS, in response to an inquiry from the Board of
Regents of the University on July 10, 1951, the Attorney
General released Opinion No. 81, wherein the Attorney
General held that despite the fact that the deed of
June 10, 1949 contained no reversionary clause or cov-
enant of condition subsequent, the University had taken
and then held with actual or constructive notice of the
reversionary rights of others; and

WHEREAS, a reasonable time for the construction of the
said Fine Arts building upon the land received by the
University of Nevada on June 10, 1949, as aforesaid,
has expired, and the condition subsequent has failed,
thereby warranting a reconveyance by the University
to the Art Gallery; and

WHEREAS, no Art Gallery building has been constructed
upon the land conveyed, as aforesaid, to the University
of Nevada, on June 10, 1949, and so such construction
is in prospect; and

ized the State Planning Board to proceed with prelim-
inary planning for the construction of a Fine Arts
building upon the Campus of the University of Nevada,

WHEREAS, under date of October 10, 1958, Dr. J. E.
Church, President of the Nevada Art Gallery, Inc., com-
municated by letter with the President and Board of
Regents of the University of Nevada and recited the
conditions of the deed of June 10, 1949, as construed
by opinion of the Attorney General of date July 10,
1951, and recited that the conditions of the gift had
failed and that a Fine Arts Gallery was to be construct-
ed upon the Reno Campus of the University of Nevada,
and upon this basis and present state of facts, re-
quested that the parcel be reconveyed to the Art Gal-
lery; and

WHEREAS, under date of October 22 1958, the President
of the University of Nevada communicated with the At-
torney General and recited the facts hereinabove men-
tioned, and documented the recitation with copies of
instruments where proper, and asked the advice of that
office as to the applicable law and proper manner of
disposing of the matter, and was advised by letter
opinion of November 17, 1958, that the request of the
Art Gallery should be honored, and that the land thus
received should be reconveyed by grant, bargain and
sale deed, to the Art Gallery, as the real party in
interest, and advised that the manner of or time for
disposition of the respective parcels by the Art Gal-
lery to the parties from whom each parcel was received,
or to his successor in interest, was or would then be
entirely the responsibility of the Art Gallery, and no
responsibility of the University of Nevada, its Regents
or the Attorney General, and advised that the authority
for conveyance of real property by the University is
found in NRS 396.430, to be made with the approval of
the Governor, and advised that nothing that has occurred
subsequent to the date of June 10, 1951, has increased
the rights of the University in such property, or
diminished the rights of the grantor to the University;

18. Faculty Organization Plan

President Armstrong reviewed the steps which led to the
presently proposed Faculty Organization Plan. A faculty
committee of 7 individuals, under the Chairmanship of Dr.
Beesley, prepared an "Organizational Plan for the Profes-
sional Staff of the University" under date of March 26,
1958. This original plan was submitted to the Board of
Regents on April 12, 1958. Action by the Regents was
deferred until a new President was selected so that he
might have an opportunity to work with the faculty commit-
tee. This Fall, Dr. Armstrong held a meeting with the
faculty and an enlarged committee was authorized as fol-
lows:

Original Members Added Members

Dr. Beesley Dean Wood
Dr. Seufferle Dean Scheid
Dr. Wofford Dean Irwin
Dr. Willey Dean Carlson
Prof. Van Dyke Dr. Armstrong, Chairman
Dr. Larson
Dr. Wright

A series of meetings was held at which Dr. Armstrong presid-
ed at the request of the committee. The Plan as here sub-
mitted was put to a mail vote of the faculty and the result,
as reported by Dr. Beesley and his committee, was 180 for
approval and 4 for disapproval.

Dr. Armstrong discussed the two areas requiring considera-
tion - (1) the Faculty Organization Plan and (2) the 1925
Rules and Regulations. Dr. Armstrong requested authority
for the Administration, in consultation with the faculty in
the areas where they are concerned, to propose revised Rules
and Regulations for the Faculty in other areas not covered
by the present Faculty Organization Plan. Chairman Grant
proposed that a committee be appointed from the Board of
Regents to study these areas with the President and to pre-
sent recommendations particularly with respect to the Facul-
ty Organization Plan to the Board of Regents at their next
meeting. There being no objection, Chairman Grant appointed
the following committee:

Mr. Crumley, Chairman Mr. Arnold
Mr. Germain Mr. Tyson
Mr. Broadbent

19. Next Meeting

At the request of the Chairman that a date for the next
meeting be set,

Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the next meeting of the Board of Regents
be held on Saturday, March 7, 1959.

20. Cancer Symposium

Dr. Anderson, as Chairman of the Professional Education
Committee of the Nevada Division, American Cancer Society,
discussed the cancer refresher course for doctors to be
held in Reno on March 25 and 26, 1959. Outside speakers
will include outstanding men from medical schools as well
as other areas of medical science, and Dr. Anderson proposed
that the University of Nevada co-sponsor the symposium, be-
cause of its educational nature.

Motion by Mr. Crumley, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the University of Nevada co-sponsor the
Cancer Symposium, as discussed by Dr. Anderson.

21. Admission Requirements

Dr. Wood explained that the purpose of the revised statement
here presented was to clarify the statement in the catalog
and to strengthen the statement in the fields of academic
subjects. The proposed statement on Admission Requirements
had been put to a mail vote of the faculty and Dr. Wood
reported the results, as reported to him by the faculty
committee which was headed by Dr. Newbry. The vote was
173 for approval and 13 not approving. President Armstrong
recommended approval by the Regents for inclusion in the
forthcoming catalog, to be effective in the Fall 1959.

Motion by Mr. Crumley, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the admission requirements be approved
and put into effect in September 1959, as follows:

As requested by the Board of Regents at the November 15
meeting, President Armstrong prepared a report on the status
and progress of the Citizens Advisory Committees:

a) The Agriculture Committee, which includes Home Econom-
ics, was formed prior to the present Regents' action
setting up Citizens Advisory Committees and was con-
tinued without change so that it does not provide for
rotation of members. Some revisions are in process.

b) College of Business Administration Advisory Committee
will meet in the near future.

c) College of Education Committee held its first meeting
on January 9 and selected a Chairman.

d) Engineering Advisory Committee held a preliminary meet-
ing on December 5 in Reno and the first full meeting
on December 8 in Las Vegas.

e) Mackay School of Mines Committee had its first meeting
on January 9 with 10 out of 17 members present. Since
there was not full attendance, they asked Dean Scheid
to serve as Chairman Pro-Tem and the regular Chairman
will by chosen by mail ballot.

f) Orvis School of Nursing Advisory Committee met on
December 7 and discussed organization and selected a
Chairman.

g) Nevada Southern Regional Advisory Committee met twice
informally in October and a formal organizational meet-
ing will be held in the near future.

h) Replies from invitation to membership have just been
received for the Library Advisory Committee.

i) The Student Affairs Committee and Mr. Hill and Dean
Basta have now been informed of acceptances.

j) Arts & Science Advisory Committee members were approved

mediately.

President Armstrong met with the Committees, so far as pos-
sible, and thanked them for their willingness to serve at
their own expense. Dr. Wood met with the College of Educa-
tion and the Nevada Southern Committees.

24. National Conference on Higher Education

President Armstrong and Dr. Wood discussed the Annual Meet-
ing of the National Conference on Higher Education to be
held in Chicago on March 1-4, and in which Dr. Wood will
participate. Because the Conference is of a very broad
educational nature, the President proposed that a member
of the Board of Regents might wish to attend.

Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried
unanimously that Mr. Crumley be authorized to attend as the
official representative of the Board of Regents.

25. Policy on Release of Employment and Salary Information

Dr. Armstrong spoke of requests which come to the offices
of the University from agencies and individuals requesting
information on employment status and salary amounts of em-
ployees, and suggested that a policy be set so that author-
ity in handling such cases will be clearly defined. Chair-
man Grant asked that the President prepare a report outlin-
ing the problem, together with a recommendation for handling
it, for submission at the next meeting.

26. Report of President and Regents Special Committee

Before leaving the Board, Mr. Hardy prepared a report as
Chairman of the Special Committee of the Board appointed
to report on progress made in the various areas of the
University covered by recommendations in the Mc Henry
Report and in the report of the Northwest Association
Accrediting team. President Armstrong read the report,
which indicated that progress had been made and was being
made in the various areas of the University. President
Armstrong also presented and discussed reports from Deans
Wood, Scheid, Holstine and Carlson on progress made along
the lines of suggestions and recommendations of the com-
mittees of the Board which studied these areas in light
of the Mc Henry Report.

Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the President prepare a report based on
this information for distribution to the members of the
Legislature.

27. Legislative Committee

Chairman Grant appointed the following Regents to serve as
a Legislative Committee to keep in touch with legislation
affecting the University.

Mr. Germain, Chairman Mr. Elwell
Mr. Crumley, Vice Chairman Dr. Anderson
Mr. Tyson

28. University Legislation

At the request of the Board of Regents, Russell Mc Donald
met with the Regents at 3:45 P.M. to discuss legislation
which he had been asked to prepare for the coming session
of the Legislature. It was agreed that, after these bills
are drafted, Mr. Mc Donald will turn them over to the
Regents Legislative Committee.

Mr. Mc Donald discussed:

a) Increase in number of tuition scholarships. It was
agreed that the bill be drawn "not to exceed 3% of the
total enrollment of the previous Fall semester".

b) Establishment of an institute for research which would
handle contractual research and receive gifts for re-
search pruposes. Mr. Butler was present at this time
to discuss the need and advantages from the standpoint
of the Faculty Committee on Research.

c) Enabling legislation to authorize use of student fee
money to amortize loans for capital improvements, so
that use could be made of income revenue bonds.

d) Modification of the restrictions governing investment
of endowment funds received by the University so that
money so received might bring larger income. Dean
Scheid was present at this time and explained his
problems concerning investment of gift money, due to
legal investment restrictions.

e) Appointment of Regents, instead of election. Since
there is already a resolution to this effect passed at
the last session of the Legislature, Mr. Mc Donald
advised that the University not introduce such a bill
at this time.

f) Permissive legislation to remove the professional
employees from the State Retirement System and place
them in OASI. Mr. Mc Donald commented that the bill
could not be drawn to apply to a portion only of
University personnel.

g) Designation of certain streets on both Campuses as
limited extensions of the highway system for the pur-
pose of traffic regulation only, as set up in the code.

h) Participation in the Western Commission for Higher
Education - will not be recommended by the Legislative
Commission, but the bill will undoubtedly be intro-
duced.

i) Remove from the statutes the restriction on employment
regarding non-citizens.

j) Bill for relief of Mrs. G. B. Blair, perhaps regarding
her property which would be deeded and sold upon her
death.

k) Authority to spend monies by the University for in-
surance covering acts of negligence and liability of
the individual person.

l) Mandatory retirement of classified personnel at certain
age. Mr. Mc Donald did not recommend this legislation
for one State Agency only.

29. Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education

Dr. Anderson asked for the privilege of discussing the WICHE
program and presented a prepared report. In his report, Dr.
Anderson indicated his belief that the University and the
Board of Regents have a responsibility toward policies con-
cerned with higher education of the residents of the State,
even though they may not be in the University of Nevada.
As a member of the Education Advisory Committee for the
State of Nevada, Dr. Anderson has had opportunity to study
the WICHE Compact. He reviewed the history of the program,
which grew out of a resolution of the Western Governors'
Conference in 1949. He then read letters from other Uni-
versities and Colleges, and from students who have applied
for entrance to them, indicating that admission to these
schools would be granted first to in-state students, then
to students from states belonging to WICHE, then to students
from states which do not belong to WICHE, always provided
the applicant is qualified and unless outstanding scholastic
ability enters into the decision. Dr. Anderson asked that
the Regents take a definite stand on the WICHE Compact.

Motion by Mr. Tyson, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
unanimously that the Board of Regents go on record as
favoring immediate participation by the State in the WICHE
program.

30. Development Fund

President Armstrong recommended establishment of a Develop-
ment Fund in the President's office, to be used with the
approval of the President, for certain administrative of-
ficers such as the Dean of the Nevada Southern Regional
Division, or of other areas of the University in defraying
entertainment and similar miscellaneous expenses for promo-
tion, for special guests, donors, etc. This would formally
make provision for the entertainment fund established
previously by administrative action for the Nevada Southern
Regional Division.

Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried
unanimously that authority be granted to the President to
establish such a Development Fund.

31. Ladino Dairy

In the preparation of plans for sale of the Ladino Dairy
Farm it was necessary to determine how long it would take
to move the facilities from the Ladino Dairy to the Main
Station Farm, and the College of Agriculture has now in-
formed the Administration that it would require 9 months.
President Armstrong suggested that more advantageous sale
of the property might be possible if the land were put to
bid in parcels of approximately 20 acres, bids to be re-
quested individually and in toto, and the Board to reserve
the right to reject any and all bids.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the sale of the Ladino Dairy Farm be
handled in this manner, with expense for the survey of
the land into parcels to be paid eventually from money
received from sale of the Farm.

32. Liaison Committees Between Regents and Colleges

Mr. Grant proposed that he appoint not to exceed 5 members
of the Board to act as liaison committees between the Col-
leges or areas of the University and the Board of Regents
to give any assistance that they might be able to offer,
and report back to the Regents from time to time.

Motion by Dr. Arnold, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried
unanimously that the proposal be approved and the Chairman
be authorized to appoint the committee.

The following committees were appointed by Chairman Grant:
(1st-named member of each committee is its Chairman)

College of Agriculture Orvis School of Nursing

33. Regents Committees

Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried
unanimously that all committees of the Board in effect prior
to the formation of the new Board, be considered dissolved.

34. Cornerstone, Las Vegas Building

Since the second building on the Las Vegas Campus is nearing
completion, consideration was given to a cornerstone cere-
mony.

Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the Masonic Order be asked to lay the
cornerstone, and that Mr. Rogers be authorized to secure
an appropriate cornerstone for the occasion.

The meeting adjourned at 5:45 P.M.
