minutes of the meeting of November 21, 1969, were approved

as submitted.



2. Board of Regents Handbook



Mr. Hug called the attention of the Regents to the Board

of Regents Handbook which had been distributed. He noted

that the Board had been needing this type of book for years.



Dr. Anderson said he believed that the Board should get

started on revising the Handbook. He suggested bringing up

one section at a time and discussing it.



Chancellor Humphrey suggested that perhaps the Board would

like to appoint a committee to work on the amendment of

certain chapters.



Dr. Anderson said he felt it very important to make a defi-

nite commitment to start this revision in order that it not

be put off indefinitely. Chairman Hug said the matter

should be discussed further after the Regents have had an

opportunity to review the Handbook.

tration, fiscal year 1969-70 (new position)

Judy Faye Hilbish, Graduate Research Assistant, 11/1/69 to

6/30/70 - $2000 (new position)



Chancellor Humphrey called the attention of the Regents to

Mrs. Elizabeth Sturm of Elko Community College. Mrs.

Sturm has been working in the Library slightly more than

half time without salary; but upon receipt of the $100,000

grant from the Fleischmann Foundation, it has become obvious

that more full-time help will be needed. Therefore Elko

Community College has entered into a contract with Mrs.

Sturm for the balance of the fiscal year.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the personnel actions be approved as

recommended.



5. Approval of Transfer of Funds



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the following

transfers of funds:



#161 $7060 from Contingency Reserve, Elko Community College

to Buildings and Grounds. The Elko Community College

and the Elko General Hospital have entered into an

agreement whereby the hospital will make its facili-

ties available to the College for instruction in the

Licensed Practical Nursing Program. This transfer

provides the necessary funds for the agreement and

the charge is made against Buildings and Grounds.



#162 $25,000 from Contingency Reserve, Elko Community

College, to Instruction. The original work program

was based on the premise that Elko Community College

would have 100 FTE students. Fall, 1969 registration

figures revealed that there are 160 FTE students reg-

istered. This increase in enrollment has created a

need for additional instructors. This transfer pro-

vides the necessary funds.



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

without dissent that the above transfers of funds be

approved.



6. Henry Albert and Edith W. Albert Trust Fund



Chancellor Humphrey made the following report regarding the

details of this bequest:



"This Estate has now been distributed to the University.

The corpus will be held separate until May 21, 1970, at

which time it will be added to the total endowment. The

present value of the corpus is approximately $469,190.

Income on deposit for use as of November 11, 1969, is

$4,282.54.



"The Will provides that 'the Trust Fund shall be known as

the Henry Albert and Edith W. Albert Trust Fund, and the

scholarship designated as the Albert Scholarships.' The

Will further stipulates that the income is to provide,

'one or more annual scholarships ... the amount of said

scholarships shall be determined by the ... Trustees (i.

e., the Board of Regents) with the provision that no one

scholarship will exceed $2000. To be eligible for such

scholarships, students must be bona fide residents of the

State of Nevada, must be enrolled for study at the ... Uni-

versity of Nevada located at Reno ... and ... must have

completed their first three years of undergraduate study

with creditable grades.' The Will goes on to provide: '...

further empower said Trustees (Board of Regents) to estab-

lish a procedure for the awarding of such scholarships along

the following general procedure: That all applicants for

such scholarships should apply through the University of

Nevada Registrar in conjunction with said Trustees (Board of

Regents), determine the number of scholarships to be awarded

and establish a fair and uniform procedure for the awarding

of such scholarships to students most qualified and deserv-

ing. That in the determination of the number of scholar-

ships to be awarded that consideration shall be given to

the amount and value of such scholarships and to the total

of the funds available from the income from said trust ...

Also, that a fair and equitable procedure be worked out for

the repayment of such scholarships and that monies repaid

will become immediately available for additional scholar-

ships. In the event all of the income from said trust is

not used for scholarships for each and every year, then I

desire that such uncommitted funds be added to the princi-

pal corpus of this trust.'



"Throughout the Will, establishing the Albert Trust, repeat-

ed reference is made to 'scholarship' when discussing the

wishes of the donor. The term 'scholarship' has generally

been interpreted through usage to mean 'gift money' (not

legally repayable); however, the terms of the Will specify

'that a fair and equitable procedure be worked out for the

repayment of such scholarships and that monies repaid will

become immediately available for additional scholarships

... '. It is assumed, therefore, that the use of the money

in this trust is intended to be of temporary nature; i. e.,

a loan."



President Miller recommended the following regulations in

conformity with the terms of the Will for loans made from

this fund:



I. Eligibility



A. Residents of Nevada



B. Currently regularly enrolled at the University

of Nevada, Reno



C. Must have Senior or higher standing



D. Satisfactory progress toward a degree



E. Must have completed at least one semester at the

University (as is required from other borrowers

of University loan funds)



II. Amount of Loans



A. A loan limit of $1500 maximum per academic year

be applied with no more than $750 during any one

semester. An additional $500 would be available

for a preceding or succeeding Summer Session.



III. Number of Loans



A. Variable each year depending upon the earnings of

the trust fund and the amount of collections.



IV. Interest



A. Four percent simple interest per year beginning

after graduation or termination of full time stu-

dent status (as is currently charged under most

other University loan funds). Interest is not

mentioned in the Will. It is recommended as a

means of assuring that the funds will be paid

promptly and thus be available to other students.



V. Length of Time



A. Maximum of five (5) years from date of graduation

or termination of the current degree program with

an annual repayment of not less than 20% of the

loan principal plus accrued interest.



VI. Application Procedure



A. Use of standard University Loan Application.



B. Require co-maker, guarantee or surety as with

other loan funds of the University.



C. Verification of applicant's student status

through the Registrar's Office.



D. Processing approved, loan promissory note and

application through Controller's Office as with

other University loans.



E. Application may be made prior to any semester or

during a given semester.



VII. Selection Criteria



A. Financial need -- Purpose for which the loan is

requested.



B. General worthiness of student.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of President

Miller's recommendation.



Mr. Hug noted that this loan requires a co-signer and asked

if this were standard practice in loans. Mr. Pine replied

that co-signers are required for other University loans

and that the co-signer could be a parent or any other fi-

nancially responsible party, except a member of the faculty.



Moved by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, that the

above regulations be adopted, carried without dissent.



7. Separation of Division of Agricultural Economics and Edu-

cation



President Miller reported that in November the Board of

Regents had approved on first reading a proposal that the

present Division of Agricultural Economics and Education

be separated into two Divisions:



a. Division of Agricultural and Resource Economics



b. Division of Industrial Mechanics



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

final approval be granted.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



8. Special Activity Fees for Ski Classes



President Miller presented a request from the Department

of Health, Physical Education and Recreation that the

special activity fees collected for Ski classes at the

beginning of the semester be non-refundable.



Mr. Seeliger said that he had been informed by some women

students that they feel they are being discriminated against

in that they are not getting a fair share in the Skiing Pro-

gram as well as in other Intercollegiate Athletics. They do

not have a Coach or other financial support.



Dr. Lombardi entered the meeting at 9:34 A.M.



Mr. Hardesty said several women students had also spoken to

him and he had referred the matter to the Intercollegiate

Athletic Board. They should have a recommendation forth-

coming soon. The girls also do not have access to tuition

waivers for athletic purposes as do men students. The Ath-

letic Board is also considering this phase of the problem.



Dr. White asked if the girls are required to pay the same

fees as the men students. When informed they were, Dr.

White stated she believed that the women students should

also be entitled to such fee waivers.



Mr. Hardesty stated that it is hoped that the students would

have a recommendation to bring to the Regents soon.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, that the

special activitiy fee be non-refundable, carried without

dissent.



9. Additions to Institutional Membership List



President Miller requested that the following memberships

be approved for addition to UNR's Institutional Membership

List:



American Society for Personnel Administrator $25

American Technical Education Association $20

Association for Hospital Medical Education $40

National Safety Council $35



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

without dissent that the above memberships be approved.



10. Lambertucci Mining Claims



Dean Scheid gave the following background information re-

garding the Lambertucci Mining Claims:



"In his Will, dated June 5, 1967, Mr. Domenico Lambertucci

of Tonopah, Nevada, who died December 13, 1967, stated 'All

mining properties, including patented and unpatented claims

of which I may die, seized or possessed, I give and bequeath

to the University of Nevada, to be used by the Mackay School

of Mines.' These mining properties, as listed in the Will

and the Court's Decree of Final Distribution (filed August

29, 1969), were 68 patented claims and 54 unpatented claims

in and around Tonopah. Since these dates, our investiga-

tions have shown that Mr. Lambertucci did not record 3 of

the 54 unpatented mining claims with the County Recorder;

therefore, these are not owned by the University. Thus,

the University offered for sale or lease 68 patented mining

claims and 51 unpatented mining claims. This correction to

the listing in the Will and Decree of Final Distribution of

the claims owned by the University of Nevada was thoroughly

explained in memoranda and correspondence sent to interested

parties and was again explained at the bidding session (Jan-

uary 6, 1970) before any bids were accepted or announced."



Mr. Hug stated that he felt the Will should be settled be-

fore any award of bid be made. He noted that there has been

a contest of the Will on the part of some heirs stating that

the claims are for the use, and not sale, by the University.



Dean Sheid stated that surface rights have been granted to

these heirs and surveys are presently being conducted.



Mr. Walsh suggested that the University should get a judi-

cial decree that this sale is proper under the conditions

of the Will.



Mrs. Knudtsen asked what would happen to the people owning

surface rights if the claims are worked as in strip mining.



Dean Scheid gave a description of the location of the claims

in Tonopah, noting that any mining done in this area would

be relatively deep so there would be no disturbance of the

surface rights. He said that in signing over surface

rights, ample land had been reserved for entrance rights

to the claims.



Mr. Hug agreed with Mr. Walsh that a declaration of intent

by the courts would be advisable.



Dean Scheid gave the following listing of bids received:



1. Ralph C. Campbell, 1129 Sierra Vista Drive, Las Vegas,

Nevada. Bid to purchase all claims for $148,200 (or

individually by parcel): Parcel 1 for $1300, Parcel 2

for $35,100, Parcel 3 for $3900, Parcel 4 for $81,900,

Parcel 5 for $16,000, Parcel 6 for $6000, Parcel 7 for

$4000. Alternate bid to lease all claims for cash pay-

ment of $50,000 plus 10% royalty of net returns from

smelter mint or other purchaser of ores or concentrates.



2. Sierra La Plata Mining Company, Granada Hills, Califor-

nia. Bid to lease all claims, with payment of $53,000

and lease for 30 years, renewable for 30 years, plus

10.5% royalty.



3. Sierra La Plata Mining Company, Granada Hills, Califor-

nia. Bid to purchase all claims for $530,000 plus 1%

royalty.



4. Mid-Continent Mining Corporation, Grand Junction, Colo-

rado, and New Park Mining Company, San Francisco, Cali-

fornia, acting jointly.



(a) Parcel 3 (3 patented claims) proposal; 12 months to

evaluate property. Purchase price of $15,000 to be

paid at $5,000 per year (beginning at end of first

year) or royalty of 25% of net operating profit be-

fore taxes, whichever is greater.



(b) Parcel 4 (63 patented claims) proposal; 24-month

period to evaluate claims. Purchase price of

$150,000 to be paid on the basis of $10,000 per

year (beginning at the end of the second year) or

a royalty of 25% (as above). Work commitment to

expend $30,000 during the 24-month period.



(c) Parcel 7 (8 unpatented claims, including 3 doubtful

ones) proposal; 12-month period to evaluate. Pur-

chase price of $18,000 to be paid at $3000 per year

(beginning at the end of the first year) or a roy-

alty of 25% (as above).



5. Hughes-Nevada Operations, of the Hughes Tool Company,

Las Vegas, Nevada. Bid to purchase all claims for

$500,000.



6. Federal Resources Corporation, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Bid to purchase Parcel 4 (63 patented claims) for

$100 and Parcel 5 (34 unpatented claims) for $100.



Dean Scheid stated that although all bidders had been in-

formed of the necessity of a 25% deposit, the high bidder,

Sierra La Plata Mining Company of Granada Hills, Califor-

nia, was unable to deposit earnest money by 5:00 P.M. when

the bidding session was closed. The next highest bidder,

the Hughes Tool Company, did deposit $125,000 as 1/4 of

their bid. He recommended, therefore, that the bid be

awarded to the Hughes Tool Company in the amount of

$500,000.



It was moved by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen,

and passed without dissent that this item be tabled until

after lunch in order to give Mr. Walsh time to review the

Will and other materials presented.



11. Pass-Fail Options



President Miller presented a request for approval of a

pass-fail option for required Physical Education activity

courses and that a limited pass-fail option program be

approved for the College of Arts and Science.



Dean Peterson indicated that there is presently a great

deal of pressure on students to make good grade point aver-

ages, so they tend to take courses only in areas where they

know they can make good grades.



Dr. Anderson asked if this would pose any problem in the

transfer of credits to other Institutions.



Dean Peterson stated that this pass-fail plan is now being

used to some degree in several Institutions, and its use

is expected to grow.



President Miller said that several Institutions now use only

the pass-fail system.



Mr. Bilbray stated he felt that all courses outside a stu-

dents major should be pass-fail.



President Miller stated that the ASUN Senate has taken

favorable action on this recommendation in regard to P. E.

and special interest in its adoption in some academic

courses. Typically, he said, it would amount to about 9

hours in the pass-fail system.



Dr. Shirley indicated that there is a problem in the trans-

fer of credits with this option; however, it is mainly a

problem of semantics, and he felt it could be worked out

satisfactorily. He suggested procedure whereby the teacher

would not be aware of which students were taking the course

on a pass-fail basis, but would turn in grades to the Reg-

istrar for all students. The Registrar's Office would then

translate the letter grade into pass-fail. He stated that

at the present time, these grade sheets are retained by his

Office for five years, but with this option it might be

necessary to keep them on file for a longer period of time.

However, he believed these were procedural matters which

could be worked out.



Mrs. Knudtsen asked what happens to an honor student whose

standing depends on his grade point average.



President Miller stated that this option will not be in a

student's major area, only in elective courses. The stu-

dent would be granted credit for the course if he passes;

however, it would not affect his grade point average.



Dean Peterson emphasized that the decision on whether or

not to register for the pass-fail option would have to be

made by the student at the time he registers.



Dr. Anderson moved, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, that the pass-

fail option be approved for the Fall of 1970 in concept

only, that it be referred back to the Administration for

further clarification of terms and procedures to be follow-

ed, carried without dissent.



12. Pre-Registration



Mrs. Knudtsen said she and Dr. White had been approached by

several female students who were concerned regarding the

discontinuance of the pre-registration procedure. These Art

students were concerned that courses required for their ma-

jor would be filled and they would not be able to enroll

and would have to attend the University an extra year.



Dr. Shirley stated that registration is a very complex proc-

ess. He had discussed the problem with these students and

had suggested they take it up with Chairman Ross of the Art

Department.



Mr. Hardesty stated that the ASUN Senate was in favor of

the pre-registration process, but had not discussed it with

Dr. Shirley.



Mr. Hug suggested the problem of pre-registration be placed

on the agenda for a later meeting.



Dr. Shirley said he believed the problem could be solved by

the Departments reserving enough spaces in the required

classes for their majors.



Mr. Hug suggested that this be put on the agenda for the

March meeting. The students should be prepared to discuss

this and President Miller should make it known to anyone

else who has objections to the registration process. Dr.

Shirley should be prepared to make a report.



Mr. Jacobsen stated he was not too concerned about any one

particular student, but did want students to be able to

register in classes required in their major.



Mrs. Knudtsen said that if the Department would, as Dr.

Shirley suggests, reserve positions for their majors, it

will help solve the problem.



President Zorn stated that at UNLV there is a joint student/

faculty committee to study the registration process.



President Miller stated that the procedure to be used in the

Spring semester had been approved by the ASUN and Faculty

Senates.



Mr. Hardesty agreed, stating that the present procedure im-

plemented for the present semester was supported by the

ASUN Senate and the Senate did not come up with another

recommendation until this past week.



Mr. Hug stated that he would still like to have a report

made at the March meeting.



President Miller stated that a committee has been appointed

and a recommendation could be made at the March meeting.



Mr. Jacobsen moved, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried with-

out dissent that this item be placed on the agenda for dis-

cussion at the March meeting.



13. Allocation of In-State and Out-of-State Fee Waivers for

1970-71



President Miller recommended the following distribution of

in-state and out-of-state fee waivers for 1970-71, based on

3% of the 1969-70 Fall semester matriculated enrollment of

6163:



Category % of Waivers # of Waivers



Athletics 50% 92

Music 27% 50

Other (academic foreign students

and service to University) 23% 43

---

185



Mr. Jacobsen asked if the 50% or 92 waivers for the Athletic

Department was for men athletes only.



President Miller stated that the Athletic Department dis-

tributes the waivers as they wish, but indicated that he be-

lieved that they had previously gone only to male students.

He recommended referring the problem of waivers for women

students to the Intercollegiate Athletic Board.



Dr. White stated she wished it understood that she is very

much in favor of women students having the same right to

fee waivers as do the men students.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above distribution of fee waivers

be approved.



Mr. Bilbray moved, seconded by Dr. Anderson, that consid-

eration be given at the February meeting to tuition waiv-

ers for student government leaders.



Dr. Lombardi suggested the possibility of increasing the

number of waivers given.



President Zorn indicated that the Faculty Senates are on

record as endorsing an expansion of the number of scholar-

ships and waivers available.



President Miller suggested that this be postponed. He sug-

gested that other types of compensation for student govern-

ment leaders be considered, stating that perhaps class cred-

it could be granted.



Mr. Hardesty stated that while class credit might be good,

he felt that the students have a greater need for finan-

cial compensation in order that they not have to have an

outside job.



Mr. Seeliger said he would like to add another item for

the February or March agenda; that is, the Student Advisory

Program carried on by the various Departments. He would

like to know the responsibilities of faculty in respect to

advising and guiding students.



Dr. Anderson stated he would like reports on three things:



(1) The procedure for faculty evaluation.



(2) The evaluation of interest and effectiveness in

student counseling and also to determine if money

is obtainable for this which might be included in

the budget so students will not have to pay for it

in the future.



(3) Possible additional tuition waivers and salary

compensation for student government leaders.



Mr. Hug suggested that this information be requested of the

Administration, but leave the timing of these reports to

them.



Mr. Bilbray stated that the policy on student tuition waiv-

ers for student government leaders should be considered

immediately. Mr. Hardesty agreed stating that he believed

the entire matter of tuition waivers should be considered

before April, because of the new officers taking office

at that time.



Mr. Seeliger moved, seconded by Mr. Grant, a substitute

motion that this report on the three listed items be pre-

sented to the Board no later than the March meeting, car-

ried without dissent.



14. Change in Credit Requirements



President Miller presented a request by the College of Engi-

neering for a change of credit requirements in Engineering

Science from 136 credits to 130 credits plus Physical Edu-

cation and Military Science requirements.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of this credit

requirement change.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved

and become effective the Summer Session of 1970.



15. Class A Action



President Miller recommended a recent Class A Action by the

UNR Teaching Faculty which provides:



"That the minimum age limit for registration for stu-

dents who have not graduated from high school be lowered

from 21 to 19 years of age; provided that such students

must have been out of high school for one full year or

more and that the individual's high school class has

graduated."



President Miller stated that the reasoning behind this re-

quest is:



(1) Many students marry and assume adult responsibil-

ities earlier than their 21st birthday.



(2) Many males complete their military service require-

ment and would like to further their education

prior to reaching age 21.



(3) For various reasons most do not want to become in-

volved with adult education programs.



(4) A reduced age should not be in conflict with the

normal high school programs.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



16. Admission to Graduate Standing



Mrs. Knudtsen inquired about the procedure for admitting

a student to graduate standing. At the present time, she

noted, the procedure is that a student seeking graduate

standing who does not automatically receive it has to take

a test. Many teachers are anxious to continue for their

advanced degree, but will have to go outside the State if

they cannot pass this particular test.



Mr. Hug suggested that this be placed on the agenda for the

March meeting.



Dr. White stated she thought this should be put on the agen-

da for the February meeting, and a report should be submit-

ted from both Campuses.



President Miller indicated that he would be agreeable to

bringing a report to the February meeting.



Mr. Bilbray also mentioned the transfer of credit between

Campuses. He said he understood that credits in Hotel

Administration, for example, from UNLV had not been accept-

ed at UNR since Reno does not have a comparable course. He

felt that courses from UNLV should be accepted at UNR and

vice versa. He felt that something should be done in the

future regarding having credits completely interchangeable

between the Campuses.



It was moved by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Dr. White, that

the report on admission to graduate standing and the con-

sideration or transfer of credits from one Campus to another

within the University System be postponed until the March

meeting, carried without dissent.



17. Student Bill of Rights



Mr. Walsh presented the opinion of the Office of the Attor-

ney General regarding the Student Bill of Rights, and Mr.

Hardesty presented the amendments deemed necessary by the

ASUN to negotiate passage of this Bill.



Mr. Walsh stated that there was no legal impediment to the

adoption of the language as contained in the preamble,

stating that a preamble is not an essential part of an Act

and neither enlarges nor confers powers.



I. Freedom of Access to Higher Education - Mr. Walsh

stated that the language used under this heading,

with the exception of the last sentence, reflects

an obligation of the University System that already

exists under the Constitution and laws of the United

States and the State of Nevada not to discriminate

because of race, religion, or political belief.



II. A. Protection of Freedom of Expression - Mr. Walsh said

that the language used in this section is too broad

and does not limit the type of expression and that

it should be stated that freedom of expression and

reasonable exception means reasonable legal means

through civil disobedience.



Mr. Hardesty stated that the ASUN has proposed to

amend this to read: "Students shall be free to

take legal means of exception to the data or views

offered in any course of study and to reserve judg-

ment about matters of opinion, but they shall be

responsibile for learning the content of any course

of study for which they are enrolled."



Dr. Anderson said he believed the phrase, "It is

the responsibility of the students that their per-

formance in the classroom be conformed to generally

accepted behavior" should be included.



Mr. Bell wanted to know how the rights of the non-

participating dissenter were to be protected; cit-

ing, for example, in a class of 50 if 40 of these

decided to boycott class, would the remaining 10

be entitled to receive instruction that day? What

if there were only one student who wished to attend

class; would he be allowed to receive instruction?



Mr. Hardesty indicated that it was the position of

the ASUN that the student has the right to go to

class or not as he decides. He added also that he

believed the instructor would have an obligation to

conduct the class as if the entire class were pres-

ent.



Dr. Anderson stated he would like to have the Stu-

dent Bill of Rights incorporated into the Board of

Regents Policy Handbook.



Mr. Jacobsen said he thought the Student Bill of

Rights belonged to the students and should stand

alone as a separate document.



Mrs. Knudtsen agreed with Mr. Jacobsen stating that

this is something that should stand alone and be a

Student Bill of Rights, not a Regents Policy. She

added that if adopted, the Bill of Rights should

then be added to the Board of Regents Policy Hand-

book and the Handbook would continue where it is

not in conflict with the Bill of Rights.



Mr. Hardesty stated that it had been the intention

of the ASUN that this Bill of Rights be incorporated

into the Board of Regents Policy Handbook. He added

that rather than being in opposition to the Board

Handbook, the Bill of Rights is in support of Board

Policy.



Mr. Grant asked what would happen in case of con-

flict, stating that he believed there should be a

provision that this Bill would not be in conflict

with prior actions of the Board.



Mr. Bell stated that he believed a decision should

be made as to whether or not this was to be a sep-

arate document. Mr. Bell also added that if this

Student Bill of Rights is adopted, it would sub-

stitute for anything in conflict with it inasmuch

as it would be the latest expression of the Board.



Mr. Hug recommended that the Board accept the con-

cept of a Student Bill of Rights, that study begin

on the Bill, and when finalized and approved, it

would be Board of Regents Policy and would super-

sede present policies as being the latest expres-

sion of the Board. He added that work should pro-

ceed to develop a separate document.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, that the

above recommendation be approved, carried without dissent.



The meeting adjourned for lunch.



The meeting reconvened at 1:45 P.M.



18. Summer School Health Service Program



President Miller requested approval of the establishment of

a Summer School Health Service Program which would:



"(1) be financed by student fees of $5 for full-time

students enrolled in a regular term, $2 for one

week, and $3 for two or three week terms (es-

timative Budget filed with permanent minutes);



"(2) provide health service coverage from Monday

through Friday, 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., and a

one hour sick call Saturday morning; and



"(3) retain existing policies and procedures govern-

ing the administration of the Student Health

Service, except for the deletion of entrance

examinations, medical examinations, supplemental

insurance and hospitalization and overnight

privileges except in emergencies."



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the fee schedule

and the Estimative Budget.



Moved by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, that the

above recommendation be approved, carried without dissent.



19. Plant and Property, UNR



A. Mr. Pine reported that in compliance with the Board of

Regents approval given in November, 1969, for a steam

heating and condensation return system for five build-

ings at Stead, the following bids were opened on

January 8, 1970:



Base Alt Total



Reno Sheet Metal $19,236 $ 8,429 $27,665

Savage & Son 25,470 9,750 35,220

Ole's Plumbing 34,050 11,400 45,450



Mr. Pine recommended that the bid of Reno Sheet Metal

be accepted, noting that it is within the $30,000 cost

estimate approved at the November meeting.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that above recommendation be approved.



B. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened on December 15,

1969, for furnishing and laundering all linen for the

Dormitories at UNR. One bid for $28,445 for a one-year

period was received from American Linen Supply Co. In-

asmuch as there was no Board meeting in December, Mr.

Pine stated that he notified American Linen of the award

of the bid to their firm, and on January 1, 1970, they

began furnishing this service to the University under

a temporary contract. Mr. Pine requested, and President

Miller concurred, that the contract be formally awarded

to American Linen Supply Co.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, car-

ried without dissent.



C. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened December 17,

1969, for dairy products to be furnished to the Dining

Commons for the period January through June, 1970. The

three bids received were:



Beatrice Foods $21,554.84

Crescent Creamery 21,554.84 1% 30 days

Model Dairy 21,554.84 1% 30 days



Mr. Pine recommended the contract be awarded to Crescent

Creamery and Model Dairy each for period of six months.

President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, car-

ried without dissent.



D. Mr. Pine reported that on December 19, 1969, bids were

opened for the purchase of library shelving for the

Health and Life Science Library facilities in the

Fleischmann Agriculture building, as follows:



Armanko Office Supply, Reno $6,509.46

Morrill & Machabee, Reno 6,628.48

Chapman Co., Idaho 8,345.00



Mr. Pine recommended that the contract be awarded to

Armanko Office Supply. He stated that funds are avail-

able from the W. D. Kellogg Foundation Grant. President

Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. White, carried

without dissent that above recommendation be approved.



E. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened on December 17,

1969, for eggs to be provided to the Dining Commons for

the period January through June, 1970. Estimated pur-

chases will total approximately $9,000. Bids were re-

quested on a plus or minus cents per dozen of the San

Francisco weekly commodity quote and were as follows:



Olson Brothers, Reno -.01

Sierra Foods .00



Mr. Pine requested that the contract be awarded to Olson

Brothers, and President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey

recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that above recommendation be approved.



F. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened on December 18,

1969, for 60 grocery items to be provided to the Dining

Commons. He requested that contracts be awarded to the

following bidders based on low bid per item:



Abbott Supply Co. 32 items $ 5,548.22

Monarch Foods 17 items 3,449.98

Milani Foods 2 items 1,157.50

M & R Westco Products 5 items 856.20

Standard Brands 3 items 519.85

Laura Scudder 1 item 309.00

Johnie's Spuds 0 item .00

----------

$11,840.75



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried without

dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



G. Mr. Pine reported that one bid had been received for a

Cary Model 14 Recording Spectrophotometer to be purchas-

ed by the School of Medical Sciences from funds provided

by a National Institute of Health Grant. The bid was

from Cary Instruments, Monrovia, California, in the

amount of $24,160.



This recommendation was endorsed by President Miller and

Chancellor Humphrey.



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

without dissent that the bid be awarded to Cary Instru-

ments in the amount of $24,160.



H. Mr. Pine reported the opening of the following bids on

December 30, 1969, for a Moduline Gas Chromatograph for

the School of Medical Sciences:



Varian Aerograph, Concord, California $5,254

Packard Instruments, Illinois 6,185



President Miller recommended the awarding of this bid

to Varian Aerograph with funds to come from the W. K.

Kellogg Foundation Grant. Chancellor Humphrey concurred

in this recommendation.



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

without dissent that above recommendation be approved.



Further discussion ensued regarding the Lambertucci Mining

Claims.



Mr. Walsh reported that he had further studied the materials

regarding the Lambertucci mining claims and believed that

everything that has been done has been proper; however, con-

sidering the amount of money involved and the fact that

there has been a claim made against the estate, the court

should be petitioned for a declaration approving the bid.



It was moved by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen,

that the University accept the bid of the Hughes Tool Com-

pany in the amount of $500,000 subject to the approval of

the court as appropriate under the terms of the Will; es-

crow to be opened by the Board of Regents and maintained

until court approval is granted with the deposit of $125,000

to be invested in U. S. Treasury Bills or securities, car-

ried without dissent.



20. Progress of University Projects

improvement projects (filed with permanent minutes).



21. Citizens Advisory Committee



President Miller commented very briefly on the report on

the various citizens advisory committees of the Schools

and Colleges of UNR (report filed with permanent minutes).



22. Condolence Resolutions



President Miller presented condolence resolutions on the

deaths of Mr. George Sensibaugh, Mr. Charles Hesse, Mr.

Frank Schmitz, Dr. Galen Pearce and Dr. James Swinney.

work, the Board of Regents of the University of Nevada

do hereby issue this statement of appreciation.



STATEMENT FOR ADOPTION BY THE BOARD OF REGENTS



The Board of Regents expresses its profound regret at

the tragic and untimely death of Dr. Galen Pearce.

Although Dr. Pearce was new to the University of Nevada,

he had distinguished himself as an outstanding teacher

and a leader in educational media. The University has

lost a man of character -- a man who cared.



To his wife Priscilla and their three children, the

Board extends its sincere sympathy.



STATEMENT FOR ADOPTION BY THE BOARD OF REGENTS



The community in general, and the University in partic-

ular, were stunned at the announcement of the tragic

death of James Paul Swinney, Ph. D., in an airplane

crash in the mountains near Reno on October 10, 1969.



Dr. Swinney had joined the Department of Speech and

Drama in September, 1968, as an Assistant Professor.

In just a little more than a year he had made an im-

pact on the University and the community. He was a

man who sought responsibility and had a realistic

concept of his abilities. Being an effective public

speaker, he was called upon to address groups and pro-

fessional meetings regularly. He was an effective

teacher in the classroom; and with his ready smile, his

helpful attitude, and his willingness to recognize

another's point of view, he won the respect of the stu-

dents. He was always willing and eager to assume re-

sponsibility in Speech Department committees.



Many of these personal attributes were also conspicu-

ous in his important role in the community. Shortly

after arriving in Reno, he conducted Sunday services

in the First Christian Church. Later he was appointed

Assistant Pastor and taught religion classes for dif-

ferent age groups.



He lived a full life, enjoying his teaching, ministerial

work, his sports car, flying and bowling. He had made

friends who will long remember him. Dr. Swinney's sud-

den death snuffed out a promising career as a University

Professor and a Minister of religion.



23. UNLV Campus Radio Station



President Zorn presented a request by CSUN for the estab-

lishment of a Campus radio station and requested authoriza-

tion to submit an application to the Federal Communications

Commission for a non-commercial FM radio station license.



Mr. John Cevette stated that the funding of the station

would require $25,500 for equipment and operating expenses

for the first year. The CSUN has allotted $6,400 on a

matching fund basis with federal funds available through

the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. He added

that in subsequent years the operational funding and ex-

pansion of the station would remain the responsibility of

the CSUN.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, that the

CSUN be given approval to submit application for a license

to operate a non-commercial educational FM station, car-

ried without dissent.



24. Request for Easement



Mr. Herman Westfall stated that the Central Telephone Com-

pany has requested an easement on University property on

Gowan Road in Las Vegas. Mr. Westfall stated that this

land was far removed from the Campus and, in answer to

questions from several Regents, indicated that he did not

think there would be a chance of getting the lines put un-

derground inasmuch as this is an underdeveloped area. Mr.

Westfall requested that this easement be approved. Presi-

dent Zorn and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Dr. White, carried without

dissent that the easement be granted.



25. Married Student Housing Survey



President Zorn briefly described the report concerning Mar-

ried Student Housing (report filed with permanent minutes).

He stated that the students wanted the optimum amount of

housing at the least amount of cost. He did not believe,

based on the results of this survey, that it would be

feasible to charge the students the amounts they were will-

ing to pay without a subsidy to pay for housing.



Mr. Jacobsen asked what housing was costing these students

now and would it be possible for the University to provide

more suitable housing?



President Zorn indicated that he did not believe it would

be possible at the prices the students indicated they were

willing to pay. No further action was considered necessary.



26. Purchase in Excess of $5000



President Zorn announced that bids were opened on January

2, 1970, for the purchase of an Automatic Recording Double

Beam Optical Null Infrared Spectrophotomer to be used by the

College of Science and Mathematics.



Mr. Westfall stated that three bids were received:



Perkin Elmer Corporation $8,800.00

Bausch and Lomb, Inc. 6,800.00

Beckman Instruments 8,054.50



Mr. Westfall said that the low bid from Bausch and Lomb,

Inc. did not meet specification and consequently recommended

that the firm of Beckman Instruments be awarded the bid for

the amount of $8,054.50.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried

without dissent that the bid of Beckman Instruments in the

amount of $8,054.50 be accepted.



27. Graduate Transient Student Category



President Zorn presented a request for the establishment of

a new student category designated Graduate Transient Status,

applicable to non-matriculated students in Summer Session

and extension courses. This would provide for students who

wish to take graduate courses, but who do not intend to be-

come candidates for a graduate degree at the University.

The existing categories of graduate enrollment require the

submission of extensive credentials and the processing of

application in the Admissions and Graduate Office. In this

new category, this would not be necessary for a student who

wishes to take a course or two and who does not intend to

pursue a UNLV advanced degree.



Dr. Baepler stated he anticipated that enrollment in this

category would be very limited in number and would mainly

be in Summer Session, workshops and special classes.



Mrs. Knudtsen expressed her concern over such a category,

citing the possibility of students taking courses in this

category and then deciding to pursue a degree at UNLV and

being informed that the credit earned in the Graduate Tran-

sient Category would not be applicable.



Dr. Baepler stated that it would be made clear to these

students that there would be no retroactive acceptance of

these credits should they later decide to enroll at UNLV

for an advanced degree.



It was moved by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. White, that

the Graduate Transient Status category be approved, effec-

tive June 1, 1970, carried with Mrs. Knudtsen opposing.



28. Donald C. Moyer Student Union Building Resolution



The following resolution was presented for adoption to

permit the closing out of construction funds for the Donald

C. Moyer Student Union building:

A $39,050.00 loan from the Capital Improvement Fee

Account to the Donald C. Moyer Student Union was

made to satisfy the initial debt service require-

ments and to date there has been no payment on this

loan; and



WHEREAS, the bond indenture requires a reserve of

$93,050 be established and this reserve account

presently has a balance of $57,050 thereby requir-

ing an additional $36,000;



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of

Regents, University of Nevada System, does hereby

authorize and direct the Treasurer to transfer the

funds from the above listed accounts to the follow-

ing accounts:



Reserve Account $36,000.00

Capital Improvement Fee Account 39,050.00

Invested in Plant by Gift

(thereby eliminating the

receivable) 3,637.68

----------

$78,687.68



Moved by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, and passed

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



29. Resolution by State Board of Architecture



President Zorn introduced the following resolution from the

Nevada State Board of Architecture recommending the creation

of a School of Architecture at UNLV. A Bachelor of Arts in

Architecture has been proposed by UNLV beginning 1973-74.



RESOLUTION



WHEREAS, it has come to the attention of the Nevada State

Board of Architecture that a School of Architecture has been

considered by the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada System; and



WHEREAS, the development of such a School will not only pro-

vide an additional education facility for Nevada students

but will also provide our State with trained professionals

to aid our future growth and development;



BE IT RESOLVED, that the Nevada State Board of Architecture

recommends to the Board of Regents that such a School be

created; and



BE IT RESOLVED, that the State Board of Architecture for

itself, its individual members, and for all the architects

in the State pledges to the State of Nevada their assistance

in creating a School of Architecture at the University of

Nevada, Las Vegas.



IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned have set their hands

this 9th day of December, 1969.

30. National Advisory Board Report



Dr. Maxey and Chancellor Humphrey discussed the following

recommendations made by the National Advisory Board in its

Annual Report (report filed with permanent minutes):



A. Environmental Quality Program



Establishment of an Environmental Quality Program within

DRI which will cross administrative lines of existing

DRI Centers and Laboratories and work cooperatively with

similar programs on the two Campuses.



Dr. Anderson suggested that the title "Environmental

Quality Program" be changed to "Nevada Program for

Environmental Studies".



Dr. Maxey stated that the wording suggested by the

Advisory Board had been used, and he thought the pro-

gram was much broader than the title indicates. He

added that the Advisory Board advised against the

establishment of a new Center.



Mrs. Knudtsen asked where this program would be lo-

cated or should it be a new Center?



Dr. Maxey said the program would cross administrative

lines of existing Centers and is still in the initial

planning stages.



It was moved by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen,

that this program be approved in principle, carried

without dissent.



B. Plasma Physics



Discontinuance by DRI not later than June 30, 1970, of

all work in Plasma Physics.



Dr. Maxey stated that two years ago the Advisory Board

had recommended the discontinuance of all work in the

field of Plasma Physics and had recommended this again

this year. He stated that the Advisory Board believed

that the DRI does not have sufficient money to do good

work in this field. He recommended that the advice of

the National Advisory Board be followed and this type

of research be discontinued.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Grant, that

all work in Plasma Physics be discontinued as of June

30, 1970, carried without dissent.



C. Membership of the DRI National Advisory Board



The rotation of a part of the membership of the DRI

National Advisory Board.



Dr. Maxey stated that the DRI National Advisory Board

members had recommended that membership on the Board

be rotated in order to involve some younger members.

He proposed that the advice of the Advisory Board be

followed and said he would welcome nominations for

membership on the Board from anyone. The nominations

would then be forwarded to the Chancellor who would

in turn forward them with his recommendation to the

Board of Regents, the appointing authority.



Moved by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Dr. White, that the

membership of the DRI National Advisory Board be rotated

and new members be considered, carried without dissent.



31. Center for Water Resources Research



Dr. Maxey and Dr. John Sharp presented a report concerning

the research programs presently being conducted in the

Center for Water Resources, DRI (report filed with permanent

minutes).



32. Proposed Policy Changes, Including University Code Amend-

ments



Mr. Humphrey noted that in November the Board had instructed

that certain DRI proposals be referred to other System

components for consideration by appropriate Administration

and faculty. The recommendations were:



1. The Desert Research Institute be designated a Campus

of the University of Nevada System;



2. The Desert Research Institute Campus be placed on

the same administrative basis as the Reno and Las

Vegas Campuses;



3. The Chief Executive Officer of the Desert Research

Institute have comparable responsibilities and

duties and his relationship to the Board of Regents

be the same as the two Presidents; and



4. The title of the Chief Executive Officer of the

Desert Research Institute be changed to President.



Mr. Humphrey stated that on December 29, 1969, the DRI

Faculty Senate had adopted a resolution withdrawing the

request that the DRI be designated a Campus. He added

that review by the UNR and UNLV Faculty Senates has not

been completed and recommended that this new DRI action

be referred to them and the Administration and be re-

scheduled for the February meeting.



Moved by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



33. DRI Estimated Financial Plan for 1969-70



Mr. Humphrey presented the Estimated Financial Plan for

1969-70 for the DRI. Dr. Maxey and Chancellor Humphrey

recommended that it be approved (report on file in Chancel-

lor's Office). While recommending the acceptance of the

plan, Mr. Humphrey noted that there was an opening deficit

of $29,000 and a closing deficit of about the same amount

and stated that a recommendation for the funding of this

deficit would be presented prior to the close of the

fiscal year.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



34. Committee of the Whole



Mr. Bell presented the following report on the meeting of

the Committee of the Whole which was held Friday, January 9,

1970:



1. President Miller introduced various Officers of the

University of Nevada, Reno, who presented the Phase I

Two other proposals, Associate Degree in Marketing/

Merchandising and the Food Preparation Certificate Pro-

gram, were withdrawn from the agenda.



2. President Zorn presented Phase I proposals in the

Specialist in Education Degree and the B. A. in Social

Science.



3. Chancellor Humphrey discussed the format for the review

of existing programs and reviewed the schedule which

was being followed in the presentation of Phase I pro-

posals; that is, the January meeting prinicipally de-

voted to Phase I proposals from UNR, the February meet-

ing largely devoted to Phase I proposals from UNLV, and

the March meeting devoted to the review of existing

programs. He recommended that this schedule be ad-

hered to.



4. In response to a request made by the Board of Regents in

November, President Miller presented a report on course

additions, deletions, and modifications for the 1968-69

academic year at the University of Nevada, Reno.



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

without dissent that this report be accepted and included

as part of the minutes of the meeting.



35. Investment Advisory Committee



Chancellor Humphrey presented the following minutes of the

meeting of the Investment Advisory Committee on November

21, 1969, and recommended their approval.



The Committee met at 12:00 noon in the Hardy Room, Jot

Travis Student Union, University of Nevada, Reno.



Present were: Committee members Dr. Louis Lombardi, Chair-

man; Mrs. Molly Knudtsen; Dr. Fred M. Anderson; Mr. Tom

Bell; Mr. Albert Seeliger; Public member Arthur M. Smith,

Jr.; Bank representatives E. Thayer Bigelow and Mr. Leon

Munson. Also attending were Mr. Proctor Hug, Jr. and

Chancellor Neil D. Humphrey. Absent were Mr. J. J. Bergen

and Dr. Robert C. Weems.



The portfolio review which was distributed November 14, 1969

was discussed by the Committee and a recommendation from the

Bank for the sale and purchase of securities was considered.

Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried with-

out dissent that the recommendation be approved.



It was further agreed to sell the following:



200 shares General Foods

172 shares General Motors

100 shares Kraftco

maturity of existing bills).



Also distributed for committee review were the current

assets for the UNLV Performing Arts Project, AG 522-5, the

Meeting adjourned at 1:30 P.M.



Submitted by Neil D. Humphrey, Chancellor

Secretary, Investment Advisory Committee



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

without dissent that the Committee's actions be approved.



36. Amendment to By-Laws of Board of Regents



Chancellor Humphrey stated that at the September, 1969 meet-

ing the Board approved on first reading a proposal that the

By-Laws be amended by adding the following sentence to the

second paragraph of Article VI, Section 1:



Final decision is to rest with the Board of Regents.



This amendment should have received final action at the

November meeting, but was overlooked when the agenda was

prepared. Mr. Humphrey recommended that this amendment be

added and Article VI, Section 1, read as follows:



The Chancellor of the University of Nevada System

shall be appointed by the Board of Regents as pre-

scribed by law, and he shall serve at the pleasure

of the Board.



Whenever a vacancy occurs in the position of Chancel-

lor, a faculty-student committee shall be established

to assist the Board in the recruitment and screening

of candidates. The committee shall proportionately

represent the faculty of each division of the System;

provided however, that no division shall have less

than one member nor more than four members. The facul-

ty members shall be selected under procedures estab-

lished by the respective Faculty Senates. The Student

Body Presidents of each instructional Division shall

be ex-officio members of the committee. The committee

will present a slate of unranked candidates to the

Board in executive session to discuss the proposed

candidates. The Division Officers shall also meet

with the Board of Regents on this matter and give the

Board the benefit of their advice. Final decision is

to rest with the Board of Regents.



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

without dissent that the above amendment be adopted.



37a. Proposed Increase in Summer Session Fees



Chancellor Humphrey stated that both UNLV and UNR have pro-

posed increases in Summer Session fees by $4 per credit. He

indicated that the need to increase the fee is to accommo-

date the new salary schedule approved in 1969 (filed with

permanent minutes) for the Summer Session faculty. This in-

crease is in line with Summer Session fees presently being

charged at other western public Universities and Colleges.



President Miller stated that if adopted, the fee would still

be comparable or lower than most of the other western Summer

Sessions. He indicated that if the increase in fees is not

adopted, it will become necessry to cancel some classes,

particularly the smaller classes.



President Zorn said that UNLV would also be forced to cut

back on the variety of classes offered.



Mr. Cevette stated that there is a negative reaction from

students on any fee increase, but he believed that most

students would finally accept it as necessary.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried with

Dr. Anderson and Dr. White opposing.



37.b Estimative Budgets for Summer Session, 1970



Chancellor Humphrey presented the Estimative Budgets for the

Summer Session and related programs at UNR and Summer School

at UNLV for 1970 and recommended their approval (budgets

filed with permanent minutes). The budgets reflect the fee

increase approved in Item 37.a.



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

without dissent that the Estimative Budgets be approved.



38. Revenue Bond Issues



A. Chancellor Humphrey stated that it was anticipated that

an attempt would be made to sell revenue bonds in Janu-

ary for the following projects:



UNR Revenue Bond Total Project



Physical Science, Phase II $1,900,000 $ 2,972,000

Education Building 2,000,000 3,282,000

$3,900,000 $ 6,254,000



UNLV



Performing Arts $ 930,000 $ 2,661,500

Education Building 2,600,000 3,193,000

$2,530,000 $ 5,854,500



$6,430,000 $12,108,500



Chancellor Humphrey reported that Governor Laxalt has

agreed, for purposes of his consideration of the need

of a Special Session, that he will assume that if the

Clark County Airport bonds do not sell January 20, the

University revenue bonds would not be saleable; there-

fore, Mr. Humphrey recommended that we not proceed with

an attempt to sell the above bond issues unless the air-

port bonds are sold January 20, 1970. Mr. Humphrey re-

quested, in conformity with advice received from the

bond advisors, Burrows, Smith and Co., that the Board

authorize the scheduling of the sale of these bonds at

the February meeting in the event the airport bond sale

is successful. He stated that if the Clark County bonds

do not sell, then the Administration would return to the

February meeting with an alternative plan.



Mr. Seeliger asked if the University bonds would carry

the same rating as do the Clark County bonds.



Mr. Humphrey stated that Burrows and Smith believe that

the bonds are similar enough in rating that if the Clark

County bonds did not sell, then the University's would

not sell.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Grant, that the

Administration be authorized to proceed with the sale

of the revenue bonds should the Clark County bonds sell,

carried with no dissent.



B. Chancellor Humphrey announced that if the UNR and UNLV

bonds are to be marketable at 7 1/2%, 30 year maturities

at 140% coverage (rather than 7%, 40 year, 125% coverage

as earlier planned), changes in the Capital Improvement

Fee should be made.



University of Nevada, Reno



Burrows, Smith and Company has estimated that to service

the outstanding $1,651,000 bond issue on Phase I of the

Physical Science Complex and the $3,900,000 authorized

issued, Phase II of the Physical Science Complex and the

Education building, we will need to realize $601,447

from the Capital Improvement Fee Assessment by fiscal

1975. This assumes the authorized issues will be sold

at 7 1/2% interest for 30 years and require 140% cover-

age. If the present policy is followed, $491,000 will

be realized from the assessment of the Capital Improve-

ment Fee (see attached schedule).



There are two alternatives available to us, either of

which will yield the necessary increase.



1. Cancel all fee waivers of the Capital Improvement

Fee Assessment (Alternative No. 1).



2. Raise the Capital Improvement Fee Assessment $10

per semester (Alternative #2).



3. Cancel all fee waivers of the Capital Improvement

Fee Assessment AND raise the Capital Improvement

Fee Assessment $10 per semester (Alternate #3).



Either alternative described above will satisfy the

immediate need but will not allow for additional bond

issues until fiscal 1976, and then only about $40,000

per year will be available for debt service. For this

reason, Alternative No. 3 is also shown. If this were

done and an additional $1,150,000 of bonds (7 1/2%, 30

years, 140% coverage) could be sold in 1971.



University of Nevada, Las Vegas



Burrows, Smith and Company has estimated that to service

the outstanding issues (Chemistry and Student Union

buildings) and the authorized issues of $2,530,000 (Per-

forming Arts and Education buildings) we will need to

realize $504,000 from the Capital Improvement Fee and

the Student Union Fee assessments, assuming 7 1/2% in-

terest, 30 year term, and 140% coverage. However, the

alternatives developed for UNR have been developed for

UNLV information purposes. If this were done, an addi-

tional $1,000,000 of revenue bonds (same terms as noted

above) could be sold in 1971.



Mr. Humphrey, President Zorn and President Miller all recom-

mended that the first alternative, cancellation of waivers,

be followed except where waivers are granted as a matter of

contract.



Dr. Lombardi asked if there was not some other way to in-

crease the Capital Improvement Fund without increasing

student fees.



Mr. Humphrey replied that there is no other major revenue

source that is not obligated elsewhere and stated that if

this is not done in February, we will have to come back with

a new recommendation which will involve going back to the

Legislature.



Mr. Jacobsen said he was concerned that this would affect

those students who can least afford it.



President Miller stated that this would not be establishing

a new fee nor would it take away all of the fee waiver, but

only a small part of it.



President Zorn indicated that he agreed with President

Miller, and noted that there is always resistance to the

imposition of additional fees.



Mr. Seeliger asked how this would affect the fee waivers of

the professional staff.



Mr. Humphrey stated that the fee waiver would still be in

effect for families of professional staff, as this is part

of their contract with the University.



Dr. Boord stated that the faculty considers the fee waiver

as a fringe benefit and a contractual obligation.



A brief recess was called by Chairman Hug.



Upon reconvening, Chancellor Humphrey announced that he,

President Miller and President Zorn had discussed this

matter during the recess and had agreed to withdraw their

recommendation. He asked that the Administration be allow-

ed to let things stand as they are now and asked that he

be allowed to try to sell these bonds if the Clark County

Airport bonds are sold. The consensus was that the Admin-

istration should proceed in this matter.



39. Special Capital Improvement List



Chancellor Humphrey recounted that in the November meeting

the Board had approved two lists of capital improvement

projects for submission to Governor Laxalt should he call a

Special Session of the Legislature. List A consisted of

UNR projects which could be funded from UNR Capital Improve-

ment Fee Funds and other funds on hand. List B was approved

"as the University's top three priorities", and the Presi-

dents were instructed to develop recommendations on how the

projects might be accomplished in increments.



Mr. Humphrey recommended that these three projects have the

following priorities:



Pr. Project University Total

As has been reported to the Board of Regents, the State

Planning Board has voted to submit these two Physical Educa-

tion Complexes to two separate architectural competitions.

This action will place these projects in excellent shape to

be considered by the 1971 Session of the Legislature and

does not make consideration of the projects by a Special

Session, if one is called, especially meaningful. It is

recommended that the Board request Governor Laxalt to in-

clude List A (self-financed projects at UNR) and priorities

1 and 2 from List B in his call for a Special Session, if he

does issue a call, and that the remainder of List B be con-

sidered the highest priorities in the Capital Improvement

Program for 1971-73.



Motion by Mr. Bell, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried without

dissent that the above recommendation be adopted.



40. Architectural Competition for UNR and UNLV Physical Educa-

tion Complexes



Chancellor Humphrey stated that on December 5, 1969, the

State Planning Board had voted to seek two separate archi-

tectural competitions for the proposed Physical Education

Complexes and to proceed as soon as possible. He recom-

mended that the following lists be approved for submission

to the State Planning Board:



UNR Physical Education Complex (approved by President

Miller)



Selden and Stewart

Vhay and Ferrari

Raymond M. Hellman



UNLV Physical Education Complex (approved by President Zorn)



Jack Miller & Associates

Daniel, Mann, Johnson & Mendenhall (Edward Hendricks)

Zick & Sharp

Moffitt & Mc Daniel, Limited



It was moved by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, and

carried without dissent that the two lists of architects

be recommended to the State Planning Board.



41. TIAA-CREF



Chancellor Humphrey presented the following report and rec-

ommendations regarding the Optional Retirement Program,

TIAA-CREF, which requires Board of Regents action.



1. Repurchase of Annuities



TIAA-CREF annuities do not provide cash surrender, loan

values or assignments. This no-cash-or-loan-value fea-

ture protects both the contributing Institution and the

staff member by assuring that the funds contributed will

be used solely for retirement income or death benefits.

In order to provide a reasonable amount of flexibility,

TIAA-CREF has, with the help and guidance of Colleges,

developed uniform guides that allow for "repurchase" of

a retirement annuity upon an individual's termination

of employment, if the annuity has been in force for

only a short time or has only a small accumulation.

These guides have met the needs of academic retirement

plans without undermining the no-cash-or-loan-value

concept so appropriate to full vesting. When repur-

chased, the annuity contract is canceled and the accumu-

lation is paid in a single sum (a small expense charge

is deducted if less than three years' premiums have been

paid).



A retirement annuity will be repurchased before payments

to the annuitant have begun if the annuity has been in

force for five years or less, provided that all of the

following conditions apply:



(a) the annuitant requests repurchase;



(b) the annuitant is neither employed at nor is trans-

ferring to an Institution having a TIAA retirement

plan;



(c) all educational Institutions that contributed any

part of the premiums consent to the repurchase; and



(d) if the annuitant has more than one annuity, the

total value of all TIAA-CREF annuities and the

longer duration of any of them shall govern in

determining whether a repurchase will be made under

this rule. If repurchase is approved, all the re-

tirement annuities will be repurchased.



Repurchase will also be made under these four conditions

if the annuities have been in force for more than five

years provided the repurchase value is not more than

$2000.



The repurchase of small or short-term annuity contracts

is thus allowed only when a person is leaving the group

of TIAA-CREF cooperating Institutions, only upon the re-

quest of the individual, and only with the consent of

all employers that have contributed. The individual who

wants to retain his annuity for retirement benefits

merely does not request repurchase.



In a sense, repurchased annuity contracts are ones that

"never really got started". Since repurchase means that

the funds contributed by the College are not to be used

for their intended purpose, a College may require, as a

condition of its consent to repurchase, a refund to the

College of part or all of the portion of the repurchase

value attributable to the College's contributions. If

the College requires such a refund and if the annuitant

consents to it, TIAA and CREF make the appropriate re-

fund. If the annuitant does not consent to a refund to

the College, the annuity is not repurchased.



Nearly 100% of the Institutions participating in the

TIAA-CREF plan allow repurchase under the conditions

stated above, and approximately 90% of the Institutions

that allow repurchase require a refund of the Institu-

tion's contribution.



RECOMMENDATION:



The University of Nevada System allows for repurchase of

TIAA-CREF Annuity Contracts under the above stated con-

ditions; and if repurchase occurs, the University's con-

tributions to the plan shall be returned to the Univer-

sity.



2. Single Sum Death Benefit Payments for Widows



TIAA-CREF annuities provide that at the death of the

annuity owner prior to retirement, the full accumulation

is payable in installments to the beneficiary he has

named. If the beneficiary is someone other than the

widow, payment may be made in a single sum. However,

payments to a widow-beneficiary have traditionally been

payable only as income, and normally for a period of not

less than five years.



TIAA-CREF has sampled the opinion of College Administra-

tors to learn whether a substantial majority agree with

the desire Colleges have had in the past to prevent the

chance of hasty dissipation of College-contributed funds

by widows faced with unfamiliar financial decisions at

a most critical time in their lives. In recent years,

more and more policyholders and a majority of College

Administrators have expressed a desire for extending

to widows the right to a single sum settlement of an-

nuity death benefits.



To accommodate each point of view, the following proce-

dure is available through TIAA-CREF:



A single sum payment of the proceeds of TIAA and

CREF retirement annuities will be made to the

widow-beneficiary of an annuitant who dies before

annuity payments have begun, provided that both of

the following conditions apply:



(a) such an arrangement is elected by the annuitant

or (in the absence of a contrary election by

him) by his widow after his death, and



(b) the annuitant dies while employed by a contri-

buting Institution that has authorized TIAA-

CREF to make single sum payments to widows, or,

having left such Institution, dies while not

employed by a contributing Institution opposed

to such payments.



RECOMMENDATION:



The University of Nevada System adopt the following pol-

icy concerning single sum death benefit payments for

widows:



TIAA-CREF will offer and agree to a single sum pay-

ment in addition to the other death benefit options

available for widows if elected by the annuitant or

if elected by the widow in those cases where the

annuitant made no contrary election during his life-

time.



3. Allocation of Premiums between TIAA and CREF



TIAA-CREF Institutional Retirement Plans allow individ-

uals to participate in the TIAA, fixed annuity plan

only, or a combination of TIAA and CREF, variable annu-

ity plan. The percentage of premium paid to CREF may

not be less than 25% nor more than 75% of the total

concurrent annuity premium payments to TIAA-CREF.



The allocation of premiums between TIAA-CREF is a matter

of choice by the individual, and most Institutions par-

ticipating in TIAA-CREF allow any percentage distribu-

tion so long as it conforms to the 25-75% minimum, max-

imum requirement. The allocation between TIAA-CREF may

be changed periodically, and most Institutions permit

changes in allocation once each year.



RECOMMENDATION:



The University of Nevada System permit any allocation

between TIAA-CREF in conformity with the minimum, maxi-

mum regulations of TIAA-CREF and permit individuals to

change the percentage once each year (to be effective

the next July 1) during the contract period.



4. University of Nevada System Professional Staff



NRS 286.802 establishing the optional retirement program

for the University of Nevada System limits participation

in the program to Professional staff members. It was

intended that there be parity between the administration

of the optional retirement program and the Public Em-

ployees Retirement Program.



RECOMMENDATION:



The optional retirement program, TIAA-CREF, be admin-

istered in a manner similar to PERS, and Professional

staff eligible to participate in TIAA-CREF shall refer

to those staff holding A, B, C contracts and Letters of

Appointment that require 1/2 or more time during the

academic year.



Mr. Humphrey stated that the recommendations had been re-

viewed by appropriate Division Executive Officers and Facul-

ty Senates and requested that they be approved by the Board.



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

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



42. Planning for 1971-73 Budget



Chancellor Humphrey presented a report concerning planning

for the preparation of the 1971-73 biennial budget request

(report filed with permanent minutes).



Mr. Humphrey requested the permission of the Regents to

proceed as recommended in the report and according to the

timetable included.



Mr. Bilbray questioned the methods of arriving at adjusted

student credits, stating that it did not seem reasonable

that graduate students should carry a multiple factor of 6

and 7.



President Miller stated that the cost of instruction is

simply higher at the graduate level. There is more individ-

ual work and much smaller classes.



President Zorn stated he believed that this is a much better

approach than had previously been used.



President Miller stated that these ratios are arbitrary, but

they had grown out of data now available.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that he was trying to gain agree-

ment as to the parameters within which the budget would be

prepared.



Mr. Grant asked how long this formula has been in use, stat-

ing that it is now known that a formula is going to be ac-

curate until the figures are available from the operation

of any given year.



Chancellor Humphrey replied that the adjustment factors are

for the previous year.



Mr. Bilbray stated that he would like to postpone consider-

ation of this until he has had a chance to review it and

consult with other people.



Mr. Grant moved that the Administration continue on with

studies they have undertaken as if it had been adopted.



Mr. Grant amended his motion to read that the Administra-

tion be authorized to proceed along the method outlined,

but that it be available for consideration at the February

meeting, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried without dissent.



Further discussion ensued regarding the Student Bill of Rights.



Mr. Hug proposed that this matter be referred to the Student

Affairs Committee and that this Committee schedule a meeting

to which Mr. Walsh, Dr. Peltier, Mr. Hardesty, and all Re-

gents be invited to go over the specific suggestions and

spend some time on the Student Bill of Rights.



Mr. Grant went back to the discussion of what to call the

document. He stated he thought it should be called the

"Student Bill of Rights and Responsibilities".



Mr. Hardesty indicated that the students have no objection

and in fact it had been the faculty who had recommended

that the term "and Responsibilities" be stricken from the

title.



Dr. Peltier stated that the faculty believed this seemed to

be more a statement of rights rather than responsibilities,

although there were indeed some responsibilities included.



In answer to a question from Mr. Walsh, Mr. Hardesty stated

that he had been authorized by the ASUN to negotiate amend-

ments to the proposed Student Bill of Rights.



President Miller expressed his appreciation for the very

fine work that Mr. Hardesty had done in developing this

document. He also commended Dr. Peltier and Mr. Walsh for

the time and effort both had expended in helping the stu-

dents with this document.



As Mr. Ronzone, Chairman of the Student Affairs Committee,

was not present, Mr. Hug called a meeting of this committee

for Friday, January 23, 1970, at 2:00 P.M. All Regents are

urged to attend and to submit their suggestions and amend-

ments in writing to the Committee prior to that time.



The meeting adjourned at 4:35 P.M.
