of Regents, which provides for the election of new officers

at the January meeting of the odd-numbered years, Chairman

Jacobsen called for nominations for the Office of Chairman:



Miss Thompson nominated Harold Jacobsen for Chairman. Nom-

ination seconded by Dr. Anderson. Mr. Mc Dermott moved that

the nominations be closed and a unanimous ballot be cast for

Chairman Jacobsen called for nominations for the Office of

Vice Chairman:



Miss Thompson nominated Paul Mc Dermott for Vice Chairman.

Nomination seconded by Dr. Lombardi. Dr. Anderson moved

for Mr. Mc Dermott. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson,

carried without dissent.



4. Report of Gifts



Acceptance of the gifts and grants as reported by the

Presidents was recommended (report of gifts identified as

Ref. 3 and filed with permanent minutes).



President Zorn called attention to the report of approxi-

mately $8,500 from a number of donors to establish an endow-

ment fund for golf scholarships at UNLV in memory of Jack

"Pappy" Walsh. He requested that the Board authorize this

fund to function as an endowment.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson.



Mr. Morris moved to amend motion to provide that this fund

be administered by a Trust Department in Las Vegas. Motion

seconded by Mr. Buchanan.



Mr. Mc Dermott urged these funds not be fragmented with-

out further discussion by the Board's Investment Advisory

Committee and moved to table further action on the proposed

endowment until after the meeting of that Committee schedul-

ed for later in the day. Motion to table seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval of the gifts as presented.

Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried without dissent.



5. Professional School Feasibility Studies



A. Chancellor Humphrey noted that Nevada Supreme Court

Justice David Zenoff was present, having requested an

opportunity to present certain information to the Board

concerning possibilities of establishing a Law School

within the University.



Chairman Jacobsen introduced Justice Zenoff and Senator

John Foley, who both urged the Board's consideration of

the establishment of a Law School, and pledged their

support with the Governor and the Legislature.



B. Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in January, 1972, the

Board was informed that Dorothe Mac Millan, by bequest,

had made available $500,000 to the University if a

School of Veterinary Science was established within five

years and that if such a school were not established,

the money would go to the University of California,

Davis for its School of Veterinary Science. The Board

directed Presidents Miller and Zorn to present reports

concerning this at the January, 1973 meeting.



President Miller reported that a review of this matter

is underway as requested and he had earlier addressed a

memorandum to the Chancellor indicating that he would

need an additional two months to complete it.



President Zorn stated that it has been concluded at UNLV

that this kind of professional School is not desirable

nor appropriate to that Campus.



C. Chancellor Humphrey noted that a School of Architecture

and Urban Design is number two on the UNLV priority list

of new programs approved by the Board of Regents in

Phase I and subject to funding of a feasibility study to

be done by UNLV and presentation and acceptance of a

Phase II report. He noted that money for the feasibil-

ity study and the first year of operation is included

in the University's budget request for 1973-75.



D. Chancellor Humphrey noted the ten year plan presented

in 1971 included requests by UNR and UNLV for Law

Schools and a request by UNLV for a School of Dentistry.

These proposals were neither approved nor rejected by

the Board since the purpose of the ten year plan was

considered to be to reveal the plans of the Divisions

and to seek consideration at a later time in conformity

with the Board's policy on Phase I and Phase II reviews

of new programs.



E. Chancellor Humphrey reported public interest in differ-

ent areas of the State had been expressed in Schools of

Architecture and Urban Design, Dentistry, Law, Veteri-

nary Medicine, and a second School of Medicine.



In response to these expressions, Chancellor Humphrey

stated that consultations with Presidents have produced

the following recommendations:



(1) That the Board of Regents authorize feasibility

studies for all professional schools enumerated in

Paragraph E above, without commitment at this time

to the merits of the programs;



(2) Such studies should consider for the present any

anticipated needs in Nevada for such professional

schools, capital outlay necessary, operating costs

and the merits of alternative locations (i. e.,

UNR, UNLV);



(3) The Governor, Legislature and appropriate profes-

sional groups be involved in these feasibility

studies;



(4) Amount of funding and source be determined; and



(5) Reports completed and presented to the Board of

Regents and the Governor in the Fall of 1974 and

to the 1975 Legislature.



Dr. Anderson moved approval of the recommendations with the

exception that an objective study of need for second 2 year

School of Medicine be initiated at once so that recommenda-

tions could be made prior to the February 22 site visit of

the existing school. If need is shown to exist, feasibility

study could then proceed along with others. Motion seconded

by Dr. Lombardi.



Miss Thompson moved to amend the above motion to provide

that feasibility studies would also include the third and

fourth year of Medical School. Motion to amend seconded by

Mr. Morris, carried without dissent.



Motion as amended carried without dissent.



6. University Acquisition of Tax-Delinquent Properties



Chancellor Humphrey noted the Board of County Commissioners

is proposing to sell certain tax delinquent properties

presently held in trust by Washoe County and is advertising

Assessor's Parcel No. 055-010-08, located in the Little

Valley area, which UNR wishes to acquire. NRS 361.603 pro-

vides a method for the acquisition of tax delinquent proper-

ties by local governments for public purposes. The Attorney

General has determined that the University of Nevada Land

Foundation qualifies as a "local government" for the pur-

pose of acquiring such tax delinquent properties.



Mr. Hug recommended the Board of Regents adopt a resolution

stating a public purpose would be served by the acquisition

of such property and authorizing the Land Foundation to

acquire it. He further recommended that since the statu-

tory section is not completely clear, the University seek

legislation amending NRS 361.603 to provide that the Uni-

versity of Nevada, or the University of Nevada Land Founda-

tion, or Nevada Southern Land Foundation could qualify

as a "local government" for the purposes of that section.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended adoption of the following

resolution and requested authorization to seek amendment of

NRS 361.603 as recommended by Mr. Hug.



RESOLUTION #73-1



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada, Reno, has followed the

direction of the Board of Regents adopted in July 1961; and



WHEREAS, such direction states, "The George Whittell Forest

and Wildlife Area shall be maintained so that: 1) most of

its area shall be preserved as a primitive area for research

and 2) a small and limited area shall be designated for

experimentation and instruction;" and



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents has from time to time reiter-

ated these purposes and has indicated an interest in main-

taining this property as an interdisciplinary Wildlands

Research Field Laboratory; and



WHEREAS, those lands which contribute to the drainage flow-

ing into the area known as Little Valley should be included

in the University's holdings;



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

Nevada, Reno, acting in accord with the Board of Regents'

directive, endeavor to obtain for public use and purposes in

order to develop the full program, those lands adjacent to

the present University holdings of Little Valley which are

available through the provisions of NRS 361.603 regarding

sale of tax delinquent properties to local governments.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



7. Revision of Purchasing Policy



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the present policy of the

Board of Regents provides that no purchase order exceeding

$5,000 may be issued until approved by the Board of Regents.



The Officers of the University recommend that this policy be

amended to provide that: "Purchases in excess of $8,000

shall be reported on the Information Agenda of the Board of

Regents prior to issuance of a purchase order or contract".



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



8. Provisional Graduate Standing



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in October, he and Presi-

dent Miller had recommended a change in the Board's regu-

lations concerning provisional graduate standing and pro-

posed that final action not be taken until the December

meeting in order to allow time for faculty and adminis-

trative consideration of this specific proposal. No meet-

ing was held in December.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended one

more month be allowed for this purpose, stating signifi-

cant progress has been made toward a general satisfactory

solution but it is believed that one additional month will

be of substantial assistance.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



9. 1973 Summer Session Budget Request, UNR and UNLV



President Miller, President Zorn and Chancellor Humphrey

recommended approval of the Estimative Budgets for Summer

Session, 1973 as submitted in Ref. 8 (filed with permanent

minutes).



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



10. Ten Year Plan



Chancellor Humphrey noted that State Law requires the bi-

ennial updating of the University's ten year plan and its

presentation to the Legislature by January 25, 1973. In

November, the Board approved a request to the Legislature to

amend the Act to provide for four year plans; however, until

that is accomplished it is still necessary to present a ten

year plan. He distributed a brief document updating the

1969 and 1971 presentations and recommended that it be ap-

proved by the Board for submission to the 1973 Legislature.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



11. Request for Modification of SCT Contract



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in November the Board

authorized a contract with SCT for a computerized student

accounting system in an amount not to exceed $128,000 for

software development necessary if UNLV and CCD participate;

if UNR elects to participate, the additional cost was esti-

mated at $52,000 for a total of $180,000.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the proposal by SCT which

allocated costs to individual Divisions was based on the

assumption that all three Campuses would participate.

Participation by only two Divisions results in an addi-

tional $6000 to UNLV in unshared costs for a total of

$134,000 for the two Campuses. Total cost of all three

Divisions will still be $180,000.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the modification

of the SCT contract.



Mr. Steninger moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



12. UNR P. E. Complex



President Miller reported that the Plant and Property Com-

mittee had met on December 14, 1972 to further review with

the State Planning Board the bids received on the P. E. Com-

plex. As a result of that meeting, the Plant and Property

Committee concurred with the State Planning Board recommen-

dation that all bids be rejected and the project be re-bid.

Subsequently, the project has been reviewed and efforts

made to reduce it to fit within the project budget.



Mr. Hancock reported that approximately $330,000 in dele-

tions are under consideration; however, concern at this time

is that the inflation factor will override any savings real-

lized by the deletions. It is anticipated that the project

will be bid between February 21 and March 29.



Mr. Pine reported that a number of alternatives are under

consideration, one of which is the deletion of the heat

plant from the project, thereby reducing the project cost by

approximately $80,000. An extension of the heat line from

the central heat plant will be substituted for that origi-

nally designed. Cost of extending the heat line would be

borne by interest earned on the bonds which were invested

at the time of sale and which now totals approximately

$205,000. The legality of using the bond interest for this

purpose has been verified.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that:



(1) The action of the Plant and Property Committee be

confirmed;



(2) Sufficient funds earned as interest on the bond money

be used to extend the heat line from the central heat

plant to the P. E. project and the heat plant be delet-

ed from the plans.



Dr. Lombardi moved that the action of the Plant and Property

Committee be confirmed. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson,

carried with Mr. Morris opposing.



Mr. Steninger moved that the interest money from the invest-

ment of the proceeds of the sale of the revenue bonds be

used to extend the heat line to the P. E. Complex from the

central heat plant. Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson,

carried without dissent.



Further discussion concerned the type of flooring specified.

Both Mr. Hancock and Mr. Pine stated that the bid specifi-

cations would preclude any floor other than Tartan.



The meeting adjourned for lunch and a meeting of the Committee of

the Whole and reconvened at 1:46 P.M.



13. Jack "Pappy" Walsh Endowment



Dr. Lombardi moved that the Jack "Pappy" Walsh fund function

as an endowment within the total endowment fund. Motion

seconded by Mr. Morris, carried without dissent.



Dr. Lombardi moved proposals be requested from Las Vegas

Banks having trust departments for management of an agency

fund of approximately $1 million. Motion seconded by Mr.

Morris, carried without dissent. (Reports concerning pro-

posals received will be made to the March meeting.)



14. Extension and Correspondence Credit Policy



President Miller endorsed a recommendation from the UNR

Undergraduate Council that, effective immediately, a maximum

study of 60 semester credits earned in acceptable independ-

ent courses completed through a regionally accredited corre-

spondence Division (including USAFI) or in extension or off-

Campus courses may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree.

The maximum acceptable toward an associate degree shall be

30 semester credits. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



15. Student Union Fee for Part-Time Students, UNR



President Miller recommended students registered for six

credits or less be assessed a $1 per semester student fee,

effective Spring semester, 1973. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



16. Establishment of an Endowment Fund



President Miller reported that Mrs. James E. Hunter and

Virginia E. Hunter, widow and daughter of Jim Hunter, a UNR

faculty member in the College of Agriculture who was killed

in an automobile accident in August, 1972, have requested

the establishment of an endowment fund to be known as "The

Jim Hunter Memorial Fund". The income of the fund would be

used to defray cost of meals and lodging of students attend-

ing the annual Animal Science Field Trip. The Hunters have

requested that of the $1,083.50 on hand, $150 be used for

1973 and the balance, plus any later additions, become the

principal of the endowment.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

the money be accepted into the University's endowment fund

and the income used as specified.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



17. Interview Expense Fund, UNR



President Miller requested authorization to use up to $5,000

by transfer from two non-appropriated funds, both of which

are for UNR use only, for expenses of interviewing profes-

sional position candidates. The two funds are the Mabel

Stanaway Briggs bequest and the Leslie and Alberta Farring-

ton gift, with a combined balance of $6,095.90.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, noting that money

for this purpose has been provided from the Board of Regents

Special Projects Fund for the past two years; however, that

fund has been substantially committed through June 1973.

UNLV has agreed to utilize regular budgeted funds for this

purpose but UNR's budget, due to reduction in revenue caused

by enrollment decreases, does not make this possible.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



18. Confirmation of Mail Ballot



Chancellor Humphrey reported that sufficient affirmative

responses were received to a mail ballot under date of

December 20, 1972 to award contracts for three construction

projects, as follows:



A. Replacement of ventilation hood over ranges in Dining

Commons, UNR (bids opened by State Planning Board).

Contract was awarded to Nevada Sheet Metal for $14,529.



B. Underground communications installation linking Mackay

Science, Mechanic Arts and Orvis School of Nursing to

the underground system which now terminates near the

College of Agriculture. Contract was awarded to Harker

and Harker for $8,934.



C. Installation of cabinets in the Anderson Health Science

building. Contract was awarded to Zuni Construction for

$5,730.



Copy of mail ballot including summary of bids received on

each of the three projects was distributed with the agenda.

(Identified as Ref. 15 and filed with permanent minutes.)



Chancellor Humphrey requested confirmation of the actions

taken as a result of the mail ballot.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.

reported that the Physics Department has requested addi-

tional time to review the bids.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended

this matter be deferred until the February meeting.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



20. Proposed Agreement with Washoe Association for Retarded

Children



President Miller requested authorization to develop a

contractual relationship between the University and the

Washoe Association for Retarded Children under which space

at Stead would be leased to the Association for $1 per year.



Under the proposed agreement the Association would construct

facilities for an educational and training program of serv-

ices to the developmentally disabled. It is anticipated

this agreement will also provide close working contractual

arrangements with several University Departments to provide

learning and teaching laboratory opportunities.



Chancellor Humphrey noted any arrangement for the use of

property at Stead by other than the University would require

approval of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare.

He recommended the negotiations be authorized to proceed

with the understanding that any resulting lease would be

subject to approval by the University Councel as well as

concurrence by HEW and the Governor.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



21. Approval of Estimative Budgets, UNR



A. President Miller requested approval of a revision of the

Estimative Budget for School on Alcohol and Drug Abuse

(Summer Session) for 1972-73, noting an increase in rev-

enue of $2092 more than was anticipated in the original

budget (from Federal Health and Welfare funds distribut-

ed by the State of Nevada) will be used to augment the

spending authority in the operating category (revised

budget identified as Ref. 18A and filed with permanent

minutes). Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



B. President Miller requested approval of a newly estab-

lished Estimative Budget for Residence Hall staffing

under the UNR Office of Student Affairs. He noted re-

sponsibility for the Student Personnel Residence Hall

staff (i. e., Resident Director and Resident Assistants)

was recently assumed by the Office of Student Affairs.

Funds were previously under the administrative control

of Housing and Food Service and were budgeted within the

Estimative Budgets of the various residence halls.

Transfers will be made from the following accounts:



Nye Hall, Director $ 7,700

Nye Hall, Fringe Benefits 770

Lincoln, White Pine, Manzanita,

& Juniper Halls, $1,040 each 4,160

23. Allocation of Matching Funds for Federal Loan Programs



President Miller stated that an additional $17,925.22 is

required to provide the institutional one-ninth matching

share for Federal student loan programs at UNR for the 1973

Spring semester. He requested these funds be made available

by transfer from the following UNR load funds:



David Russell Loan Fund $ 7,860.82

Goodfellow Loan Fund 5,334.82

Garvey Rhodes Loan Fund 4,729.58

$17,925.22



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



24. Part-Time Salary Schedule, CCD



President Donnelly recommended approval of the following

salary schedule for part-time faculty, effective Spring

semester beginning January 29, 1973:



Rank I Rank II Rank III

Step 1 $ 75 $150 $200 per semester

Step 2 90 160 210 credit

Step 3 105 170 225

Step 4 120 180 240

Step 5 135 190 250



Placement in rank and step will be determined by qualifica-

tions of the Instructor. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.



Mr. Steninger moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



25. Student Association Fees, CCD



President Donnelly noted at the present time Student Associ-

ation Fees for the Community College Division are $10 per

semester for students taking 6 or more credits and $.50 per

credit for those taking 5 or less credits. He reported

these fees are satisfactory on the main Campuses but work

a hardship both for students and Administration in the

various centers served by the College. The amount of money

received is not sufficient to fund a Student Activities

Program. It is also customary, he said, for most Community

Colleges not to charge a Student Association Fee for Com-

munity Service courses.



For the above reasons, Dr. Donnelly recommended that the

Student Association Fee not be assessed students enrolled in

the various centers served by the Colleges and for Community

Service courses wherever they are held. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



26. Retention of Leased Facilities, CCCC



President Donnelly recalled that in October he was requested

to review the space requirements for CCCC and to make a

recommendation concerning the future use of the presently

leased facilities at 737 North Main Street, Las Vegas. He

referred to a Space and Enrollment Study for CCCC for 1972-

76 (identified as Ref. 25 and filed with permanent minutes)

which had been prepared as a result of this request and

which indicated a continuing need for the space for at least

four years.



President Donnelly recommended, and Chancellor Humphrey

concurred, that, subject to budgetary considerations, CCD

plans to continue to lease these facilities for the next

four years.

sale and requested authorization to obtain an appraisal on

the property and enter into negotiations with the Bishop of

Reno for the purchase of the property for the use of Western

Nevada Community College (a description of the property is

contained in Ref. 26, filed with permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that a second appraisal of

property be secured (the Bishop of Reno has one appraisal

available) and the Administration be authorized to proceed

rence. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.

current University policy.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.

40. Institutional Matching Monies, Student Loan Programs



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in November it was report-

ed that UNLV needed $7,855 additional for the 1/9 institu-

tional matching for Federal Student Loan programs and the

Board authorized these funds be provided by transfer of

$6,949.38 from the David Russell Loan Fund and $905.62 from

the Goodfellow Loan Fund.



Following the meeting it was discovered that both these loan

funds are dedicated to UNR students and, therefore, the

transfer would be inappropriate. Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended that the $7,855 be made available to UNLV by transfer

from the Alice Dimmitt Endowment Income account, which is an

unrestricted endowment fund subject to allocation by the

Board of Regents.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris,

carried without dissent.

Manager David C. Wilkins. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



42. Proposed Gift of Property to CCD



President Donnelly reported that Mr. and Mrs. Herman M.

Greenspun have offered a gift of property located in

Henderson for use by Clark County Community College. There

are no other restrictions placed on the property by the

donors and it was reported that the property could be sold

as long as the proceeds benefited the Community College.



The property is described as: That portion of the south-

half (S-1/2) of Section 8, Township 22 South, Range 62 East,

MDB & M, zoned for "College" and delineated on plat of Green

Valley Master Plan; said parcel also includes that portion

described in green as "OS" (open space) on said plat; ex-

cepting therefrom any portion thereof lying in the South

Half (S-1/2) of the South Half (S-1/2) of said Section 8;

further excepting therefrom any portion thereof lying with

Union Pacific Railroad (200 feet wide) as shown on Clark

County Assessor's tax maps.



President Donnelly and Chancellor Humphrey recommended

acceptance of the property for the purpose specified.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Buchanan,

carried without dissent.



43. Suggested Legislation



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Board seek amend-

ment to NRS 396.430 which presently reads as follows:



1. The Board of Regents shall have the power to sell or

lease any property granted, donated, devised or be-

queathed to the University, except property granted to

it by the United States of America; provided:



(a) The sale or lease of such property is not prohib-

ited by the grant, gift, devise or bequest

thereof; and



(b) Any such sale or lease shall be approved by the

Governor.



2. The proceeds and rents from such sale or lease shall be

held, managed, invested, used, bestowed and applied by

the Board of Regents for the purposes, provisions and

conditions prescribed by the original grant, gift,

devise or bequest of the property so sold or leased.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended legislation be requested

which will delete the phrase "except property granted to

it by the Uniited States of America" from subsection 1 of

369.430.



Mr. Steninger moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Buchanan, carried without dissent.



44. New Business



A. Dr. Anderson recalled that on December 13, 1972, members

of the UNR student body arranged a program to demon-

strate some of the difficulties faced by phsyically

handicapped students and other individuals attempting

to get from place to place on Campus, particularly from

one building to another. He suggested the students be

commended for their concern and their desire to help.



He also suggested that the Board of Regents and the

Administration respond with positive action by referring

the problem of access to the Administrators of all Divi-

sions of the University for development of solutions to

the existing problems and recommendations designed to

avoid future ones.



Dr. Anderson moved that this matter be referred to the

Administration for consideration by all Divisions of the

University and a report be brought back to the Board at

the May meeting. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson,

carried without dissent.



B. Dr. Anderson submitted a statement concerning an area

which he believed needed review by the Administration

suggesting the Regents, Administration, Faculty and

students make a study of the feasibility of students

being allowed to repeat courses in which they receive a

relatively low grade or a failure, have the previous

credits and grade eliminated from their records and the

new credits and new grades placed in their records.



Dr. Anderson moved that this matter be referred to the

Administration for consideration by the three instruc-

tional Divisions and that reports be brought back to the

Board at the May meeting with either tentative or final

recommendations.



C. In response to a request from Mr. Steninger, Presidents

Miller and Donnelly reported concerning the activity of

each of their Divisions during the interim semesters.

President Zorn reported that although the 4-4-1 calendar

had been discussed at UNLV it had not been instituted

and the plan had been dropped.
