6. Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5000, UNLV



A. President Zorn reported that bids were opened December

17, 1971 for the purchase of an offset press for

Central Services:



American Addressing, San Diego $6,225.00

Heinsohns, Salt Lake City 7,900.00

ATF-California Printing, Los Angeles 8,145.00

Smart Supply, Los Angeles 8,300.00



President Zorn recommended acceptance of the bid of

American Addressing, San Diego for the purchase of an

American Type Foundry Press for the total price of

$6,225.00. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Mr. Bilbray asked about the specifications for this

bid, stating that he had received a complaint from

Addressograph-Multigraph, in Las Vegas, that the

specifications were written in such a matter as to

preclude bids from that firm or their Las Vegas firms

being considered.



Mr. Mc Dermott stated that he had also been contacted

concerning this matter, but after inquiry to the Busi-

ness Manager, had satisfied himself that the specifica-

tions were in order and the bidding procedure was

appropriate.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval of the bid as recommended.

Motion seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried without

dissent.



B. President Zorn reported that bids were opened December

20, 1971 for the purchase of equipment for the Physics

Department. 17 items were bid; in many cases only one

bid was received.



Item #1 Hewlett Packard, Albuquerque $ 530.58

Item #2 Hewlett-Packard 508.08

Item #3 Hewlett-Packard 1,940.98

Keithley Instruments, Cleveland 2,142.01

Tektronix, Inc., Las Vegas 742.41

Item #17 Leeds & Northrup 1,100.00



President Zorn recommended that on all items where a

single bid was received that bid be approved; on items

where more than one bid was received, the low bid be

approved in each case except for Item #16. He explain-

ed that Item #16 is a Mark-Time Generator and the low

bid by Hewlett-Packard did not meet specifications in

that it had a more limited range of measurement. Pres-

ident Zorn recommended the bid of Tektronix, Inc. be

accepted. He further explained that Items #11, 12 and

13 were not recommended for award because the costs

were more than anticipated and a reevaluation of speci-

fications on the equipment is in process. The total

cost of the purchase recommended was $12,652.12 and

funding is available from the Supplemental Equipment

appropriation. Chancellor Humphrey concurred in the

above recommendation.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc

Dermott, carried without dissent.

President Zorn recommended award to the low bidder,

Mayhew, Ltd., in the amount of $13,952. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



D. President Zorn reported that bids were opened December

27, 1971 for the purchase of 30 microscopes and 30

microscope illuminators:

the illuminator specified was American Optical #396V.



President Zorn recommended the low bid of Curtis Sci-

entific of $9,840 for Item #1 and the low bid of

Scientific Instruments at $1,030 for Item #2 be accept-

ed. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc

Dermott, carried without dissent.

Bilbray, carried without dissent.



9. National Advisory Board Report, DRI



Chancellor Humphrey commented briefly on the report filed

by the National Advisory Board to the Desert Research Insti-

tute following its meeting in Reno on November 19-20, 1971.

Report was included with the agenda and is filed with per-

manent minutes identified as Ref. 9. A list of the member-

ship of the Board was attached. Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended that the report be accepted.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion was seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



10. Ad Hoc Committee to Study DRI



Chancellor Humphrey reported that in February, 1970, the

Board approved a recommendation by the Coordinating Council

that a committee be established for the "...further study

of the role and relationship of the DRI in the total Uni-

versity System. Such a study shall be made with no pre-

conceived notions as to the role and relationship of the

units involved."



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the final report of the ad

hoc committee was presented to the Coordinating Council on

December 16, 1971, at which time the Council voted to accept

the report with communication to the ad hoc committee. He

also noted that the report was included with the agenda for

the information of the Board of Regents (report filed with

permanent minutes, identified as Ref. 10). No action was

requested of the Board of Regents and none was taken con-

cerning the report.



11. Quarterly Report Concerning Disciplinary Cases, DRI



As required by the Rules and Disciplinary Procedures for

Members of the University Community, "President Ward filed

a report for the period ending October 1, 1971 (report

identified as Ref. 11 and filed with permanent minutes).



12. Proposed Salary Schedule, Part-Time Instructors, CCD



President Donnelly presented a salary schedule for part-

time Instructors for 1972-73 and recommended its approval

by the Board (schedule identified as Ref. 12B and filed

with permanent minutes). Chancellor Humphrey concurred

in the recommendation.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



Discussion resumed on #10, Ad Hoc Committee to Study DRI



Dr. Anderson expressed some concern about the language con-

tained in the report of the ad hoc committee, particularly

paragraphs 1.2 and 1.3, pointing out that in his opinion

it reflected a tendency on the part of the faculty to ig-

nore the legitimate interest in the University by the

people in the State. He expressed further concern that

this report might be misunderstood as expressing official

University policy.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the history of the establish-

ment of the committee, noting that because a number of

faculty wished to examine the way the DRI was administered

and the relationship between DRI and the University, this

committee was requested. Since its establishment was ap-

proved by the Board, it was considered appropriate that

the report be presented for the Board's information. He

pointed out that the report is considered internal to the

Coordinating Council, but if the Board wished to consider

the report as an action item, he would prefer that the

committee be present and the officers be in a position to

make recommendations.



No further action was taken on the report except to note for

the record that the report was not to be considered a report

by DRI.



13. Request for Increase in Fee, UNR



President Miller presented, with his endorsement, a request

from the Office of Student Affairs that the fee for re-

activation of a placement file for alumni be increased from

$1 to $3, effective immediately. Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended approval, subject to confirmation that the Phase II

regulations of the Wage and Price Freeze will permit such

an increase.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



14. Consolidation of Major and Options within Managerial

Sciences, UNR



President Miller endorsed a recommendation of the faculty

and Dean of the College of Business Administration for the

elimination of the existing majors under the Managerial

Sciences Department (Finance, Management and Marketing --

together with the 16 options currently shown) and replac-

ing them with one major: Managerial Sciences. Further

details of the proposed consolidation were contained in

a memorandum from Dean Weems (identified as Ref. 16 and

filed with permanent minutes). Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended approval.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



15. Proposal for Study of Year Round Operation



Mr. Bilbray requested that some attention be given to a

year round operation of both Universities and the feasi-

bility of 3-year degrees.



Following discussion of the proposal, it was agreed that if

action is to be requested of the Administration to conduct

such a study, an appropriate motion should be developed for

introduction at the next meeting and one which would provide

that this matter be referred to the Educational Policies

Committee.



16. Clark County Community College Site



President Donnelly introduced Mr. Clay Lynch, Mr. Boyd

Bulloch and Assemblyman Dave Branch, from the City of

North Las Vegas, and read the following letter dated

January 13, 1972:



In reply to your correspondence of December 20, the

City of North Las Vegas has made the appropriate

arrangements to convey the:



West 1/2 of the Southeast 1/4 of Section 12,

Township 21 South, Range 60 East



to the Community College for your development program.

The appropriate documents will be forwarded as soon

as possible. At the same time the City of North Las

Vegas has accepted a grant of $100,000 as the federal

share of the first phase of the development of a 40-

acre park immediately adjacent to this site.



The proposed site has distinct advantages over any

other location previously explored. Direct access by

a 6-lane boulevard from a major interchange of the

freeway is approximately 1/2 mile away which will

make the service of this Community College available

to any area of the County. The development of hous-

ing subdivisions and the adjacent park facility en-

hances the desirability of this site so far as any

elements of environment and setting are concerned.

All utilities are immediately available to the

property.



We appreciate the fact that you have determined the

best location for the first Community College in

Southern Nevada and assure you of our full cooperation.



The letter was signed by Major Gene Echols and Councilmen

Waite, Cieland, Gray and Williams of North Las Vegas.



President Donnelly reported that the Clark County Community

College Advisory Board had recommended acceptance of the

offer of the above 80 acres and he added his endorsement

to the recommendation for acceptance of the gift and desig-

nation of the site as the location for the Clark County

Community College. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



17. Application to the Bureau of Land Management



President Donnelly recommended that the Board authorize an

application to the Bureau of Land Management for 90+ acres

near the intersection of Charleston and Jones in Las Vegas

as a possible future site for a Community College. Chancel-

lor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



18. Nominations for Architects for CCD Projects



President Donnelly recalled that the agreement with the

State Planning Board provides that the University will

nominate at least two architects, in preferential order,

one of which will then be selected by the State Planning

Board for the specific project. He made the following

recommendations for nomination of architects for the 3

Community College projects which will be funded by Higher

Education Capital Construction Fund monies available on

July 1, 1972:



Elko Community College



1. Mr. Hewitt Wells

2. Mr. Arne Purhonen



Clark County Community Center



1. Daniel, Mann, Johnson and Mendenhall

2. Jack Miller & Associates



Western Nevada Community College



1. R. A. Casazza

2. Raymond Hellman

3. Thomas Wall



President Donnelly further recommended that the firm of

Daniel, Mann, Johnson and Mendenhall be selected as the

architects to do the master planning of Western Nevada

and Clark County Community Colleges.



Mr. Morris moved approval of the recommendation that Mr.

Hewitt Wells and Mr. Arne Purhonen be nominated to the

State Planning Board as architects for the ECC project.

Motion seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



Mr. Mc Dermott moved that the selection of a master plan-

ner for the WNCC and CCCC Campuses be referred to the Plant

and Property Committee, a time for a special meeting of

this Committee be set and the recommendation of the Commit-

tee be referred to the February meeting. Motion seconded

by Dr. Lombardi, carried with Mr. Bilbray opposing.



19. Money for Architects Fees to be Advanced



President Donnelly and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

the Administration be authorized to advance from the Board

of Regents Special Projects Fund the necessary money for

architects fees for the ECC project, and for the CCCC and

WNCC projects when the architects are selected, with the

understanding that all monies advanced will be repaid July

1, 1972 from the Higher Education Capital Construction Fund.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Bilbray, carried without dissent.



20. Tentative Time Schedules and Budgets for CCD Projects



A tentative time schedule and budget for each of the 3 CCD

projects was submitted with the agenda for information

(identified as Ref. 14F and filed with permanent minutes).



Mr. Steninger expressed concern over a proposed October

starting date for construction of the ECC building and

moved that the Board of Regents express itself as desir-

ing that the second building at Elko be started in July.

Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without dissent.



21. Site for Second ECC Building



President Donnelly reported that concern has been expressed

related to legislative authorization for a second building

at ECC and noted that an opinion is being requested from

the Attorney General. A recommendation for the location of

that second building will be made at a later date.



22. Site for WNCC Building



President Donnelly reported that a public meeting is sched-

uled for January 21, 1972 in Carson City, after which a

recommendation will be made for the location of the WNCC

building to be funded by the Higher Education Capital

Construction Fund.



He also reported that a recommendation concerning the

designation of the 200 acre parcel of land which has been

offered by the State in the Carson City area will be made

following the completion of a geological survey now being

done by Dean Scheid of the Mackay School of Mines, but

which has been delayed because of the snow cover.



23. Albert and Emily Hilliard Chair in Humanities, UNR



President Miller recommended that the bequest of Mrs. Emily

Hilliard to UNR be used to establish the Albert and Emily

Hilliard Memorial Fund Chair in the Humanities. He sug-

gested that the Chair be filled on a temporary and perhaps

part-time basis by a distinguished person in the Humanities

who would present a graduate seminar and a series of public

lectures. The public lectures would, under normal circum-

stances be published and be part of a series in the Humani-

ties, to be initiated and funded from the Hilliard bequest.

He noted that the income from the bequest would not make it

possible to fill the Chair on a permanent basis with a dis-

tinguished person, so the expectation is that it would be

filled either on the One Semester or Summer Basis in most

years or perhaps on a part-time basis for a longer period

of time. (Additional details of the proposal are contained

in Ref. 17 filed with permanent minutes.) Chancellor

Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc

Dermott, carried without dissent.



24. Cornerstone, Health Science Building



President Miller recommended that the Grand Lodge of Free

and Accepted Masons be requested to place the cornerstone

of the Health Science building on Saturday, April 8, 1972

at 1:30 P.M. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc

Dermott, carried without dissent.



25. Offer to Purchase University Land



President Miller reported that the City of Reno has sub-

mitted an offer to purchase, for $2900, 1.375 acres of land

situated in the southwest corner of the Main Station Farm

to be used for an extension of Rock Boulevard to connect

with Boynton Lane. The land is unused in the present farm-

ing process.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended that

the offer be accepted and the proceeds be used in develop-

ing the College of Agriculture program on the Main Station

Farm.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Bilbray, carried without dissent.



26. Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5000, UNR

without dissent.



B. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened January 5, 1972

for the purchase of an x-ray spectrometer system for

the Physics Department. This equipment will be used

to observe characteristic x-radiation created by the

bombardment of targets with protons from a Van de Graaf

accelerator. 5 bids and 2 alternates were received as

follows:



Kerex Corp., Burlingame $ 6,965.00

Kerex Corp., (alternate) 7,761.00

Ortec, Inc., Oak Ridge, Tn. 7,620.00

Nuclear Semiconductor, Menlo Park, Ca. 8,855.50

Nuclear Semiconductor, (alternate) 9,452.50

concurred.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Mc

Dermott, carried without dissent.



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

1971 for the purchase of a nuclear magnetic resonance

spectrometer for the Chemistry Department. This instru-

ment is used primarily to detect hydrogen atoms in a

molecule. It can be used for certain other atoms as

well, such as fluorine and phosphorus. This instru-

ment is useful in structure determination and in meas-

uring chemical reaction rates. It is a nondestructive

analytical tool; i. e., the sample remains intact dur-

ing analysis.



Bids were received from 3 firms on new equipment and

2 firms on used equipment, as follows:



Joel, Inc., Burlingame, Ca. (used) $28,300.00

Perkin-Elmer Corp., Norwalt, Ct. (new) 30,400.00

Varian Assoc., Los Altos, Ca. (used) 33,510.00

Varian Assoc. (new) 49,550.00

Joel, Inc. (new) 69,700.00



President Miller recommended the bid of Joel, Inc. for a

used spectrometer in the amount of $28,300 be accepted.

Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



D. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened January 3,

1972 for printing of the 1972-73 UNR Catalogs.



Levinson-Mc Nally Co., Sparks $22,973.60

A. Carlisle & Co., Reno 23,072.40

American Collegiate Press, Dallas 22,300.00

Cal-Central Press, Sacramento 24,746.50

A. B. Hirschfeld Press, Inc., Denver 27,960.50

Express Printing, Sparks 30,888.00

Peninsula Lithograph, Menlo Park 31,135.60

Wallace Press, Hillside, Il. 31,924.60



Mr. Pine noted that the Levinson-Mc Nally bid with the

5% in-state preference would be equivalent to a bid of

$21,824.92, which is below the low bid of American

Collegiate Press, Dallas.



President Miller recommended award of the bid to

Levinson-Mc Nally Co. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.



E. Mr. Pine reported than an emergency purchase order was

placed on December 20, 1971 with E. C. Cooley Company

for a heat exchanger to be used in Lincoln Hall.

Quotations were received as follows:



Bell & Gossett, 10-week delivery $ 5,717.00

E. C. Cooley, 5-week delivery 6,640.00

Ace Tank & Heater Co., 5-week delivery 7,126.00



Mr. Pine explained that one of the two boilers at

Lincoln Hall failed. This heating system provides

heat and hot water to White Pine and to Lincoln Hall.

The system is now being operated with one boiler and

a portable tank car heater which requires checking

every hour, thus leaving the Central Heat Plant unat-

tended for a period each hour during the nighttime

hours. It is impossible to supply the total amount of

heat for complete comfort during the present cold peri-

od. Installation of the heat exchanger will eliminate

the boiler plant at Lincoln Hall and the total heat

load will then come from the Central Plant.



President Miller recommended confirmation of the emer-

gency purchase from E. C. Cooley. Funds are available

in the Building and Grounds Operating account. Chan-

celler Humphrey concurred.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



F. Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened January 13,

1972 for the purchase of 200 tons of whole barley to

be used for the experimental feeding of calves at the

Main Station Farm at an estimated cost of $10,800.

The bids were higher than anticipated and the item

will be rebid on 50 ton lots (approximately one month

usage).



27. Purchase Deferred from December Meeting



Mr. Pine recalled that in December bids were reported on

furniture for the Physics Department but several items

were not awarded so that there would be an opportunity

to physically inspect the furniture. The inspection has

been made and the following bids are ready for award:

Permalab, Newberry Park, Ca. 1,724.00



President Miller recommended award to S. P. D. for a total

purchase of $32,939.78. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs.

Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



Following adjournment for lunch, Mr. Steninger announced that the

Plant and Property Committee would meet at 9:00 A.M. on Friday,

January 21, 1972 in the Western Nevada Community College build-

ing in Carson City. It was agreed that the Committee would dis-

cuss recommendations for selection of a master planner for the

two Community College Campuses, including discussion and inter-

view of at least 3 architects, and would also consider recom-

mendations to the Board of Regents of the architects to be

nominated to the State Planning Board for the WNCC and CCCC

buildings which have been funded.



28. Progress of University Projects



A report from the Vice President for Business was included

with the agenda and contained a status report of all

Buildings and Grounds projects now underway at UNR. A

report from the State Planning Board on the status of

capital improvement projects under the supervision of the

agency was also distributed. (Both reports are on file

in the Chancellor's Office.)



29. Resolution by Nevada State Medical Association House of

Delegates



President Miller presented a resolution which had been

unanimously adopted by the Nevada State Medical Associa-

tion House of Delegates, as follows:



BE IT RESOLVED, that the House of Delegates of NSMA

send an official letter of commendation to George

Smith, M. D., Dean of the School of Medical Sciences,

University of Nevada, for the highly successful and

competent manner in which he and his staff have ac-

complished the Herculean task of having the School

of Medicine reach fruition.



30. Extension of Lease



President Miller noted that the U. S. Navy and U. S. Marine

Corps presently occupy a facility on Evans Avenue on land

leased from the University. Their new facility under con-

struction at Stead will not be complete until September,

1972; however, the present lease with the University expires

June 30, 1972. The Department of the Navy has requested a

month-to-month extension of the present lease. President

Miller and Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried wthout dissent.



31. Security Disclaimer



Chancellor Humphrey recommended adoption of the following

resolution:



RESOLUTION NO. 72-1



BE IT RESOLVED that Clark J. Guild, Jr., who is a

citizen of the United States will not require, nor

will have, and can be effectively denied, access to

classified information in the possession of the or-

ganization, the organization's policies or practices

in the performance of contracts for the Government.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



32. Responsibility for Graduate Programs in Education



Mrs. Knudtsen stated that she had requested that there be

discussion at this meeting, and reference for further

study, of the advisability of making the UNR and UNLV

Colleges of Education responsible for graduate work in

those Colleges and removing the responsibility from the

jurisdiction of the Graduate Deans.



Following discussion by the Regents and comments by Pres-

ident Miller and President Zorn, Dr. Anderson moved that

this matter be referred to the Administration and the

Educational Policies Committee for study and that gradu-

ate programs in all of the Colleges be included in the

study. Motion seconded by Mr. Guild, carried without

dissent. It was agreed that a report would be made back

to the Board of Regents at its April Meeting.



33. Revision of Board of Regents Handbook



Chancellor Humphrey noted that a new Chapter 14 of Title

4 of the Board of Regents Handbook has been developed to

include current policy statements on financial aids for

students. No attempt has been made to develop new policy

or to revise existing policy. He recommended that the

Board reaffirm the policy reflected in Ref. 26 (filed

with permanent minutes) with the understanding that

several areas have been identified where amendment to

existing policy is desirable and recommendations for such

amendments will come back to the Board after review by

faculty and students where appropriate, and after further

review and discussion by the Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



34. Amendment of By-Laws



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that at the December meeting

a proposal was made that the By-Laws of the Board be

amended to provide for the conduct of Executive Sessions.

Accordingly, a suggested amendment was mailed to the

Board on December 23 and included with the agenda for

discussion. (Identified as Ref. 27 and filed with the

permanent minutes.) Chancellor Humphrey noted that an

addition was suggested by the Advisory Cabinet to change

the first sentence to read "...only the Secretary to the

Board, Counsel, the Officers of the University, and

others by invitation of the Board, shall be present."



Mr. Steninger moved that the third sentence be amended to

read: "Officers of the University will take such action

as is required to effect the Board's decision." and that

all the following text be deleted. Motion seconded by

Mr. Guild.



Mr. Hug suggested for clarification that the second sentence

be amended to read: "Minutes of action taken, but not

deliberations, in such meetings, will be kept but shall

not be made public."



Mr. Hug's amendment was accepted.



Mr. Bilbray moved to table for one month and substitute

amendment be drafted. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris,

carried without dissent.



35. Final Plans, ECC Instructional Building



President Donnelly introduced Mr. Hewitt Wells who presented

the final plans for the ECC Instructional building. A sum-

mary of the project was distributed with the agenda (identi-

fied as Ref. 13 and filed with permanent minutes).



Dr. Lombardi moved approval of the final plans as presented.

Motion seconded by Mr. Morris, carried without dissent.



36. Estimative Budgets for 1972 Summer Session



Chancellor Humphrey presented the budget requests for UNR,

UNLV and CCD for the 1972 Summer Sessions. (Requests

identified as Ref. 28 and filed with permanent minutes.)

Chancellor Humphrey noted that the UNR Budget Request

included a $1 increase in the per credit fee (from $23

to $24 per credit) which he stated was endorsed by both

President Miller and himself. Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended approval of the Estimative Budget Requests.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



37. Progress Report on University Code



Chancellor Humphrey reported that sufficient copies of the

latest draft of the University Code have been provided all

Divisions for distribution to all faculty. Requests have

been made for a greater period of time for faculty review.

Chancellor Humphrey stated that it has been his under-

standing that the April meeting would be a reasonable time

for presentation to the Board of Regents and asked the

Presidents and the Faculty Senate Chairmen to comment if

there was exception to this schedule. No exception was

taken. It was understood that Faculty Senates may wish

to present alternative proposals at the April meeting.



38. Bequest of Mrs. Dorothe Macmillan



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the will of Mrs. Dorothe

Macmillan, deceased, provides that the residual part of

her estate be given "...to the University of Nevada in

memory of (her) husgand, Gordon Macmillan, to be used to

establish a School of Veterinary Medicine, and in the

event that the University of Nevada does not establish

such a School within 5 years of the date of (her) death,

my trustee shall distribute the rest, residue and remain-

der of my estate to the School of Veterinary Medicine,

University of California, Davis ...".



Mr. Humphrey noted that Mrs. Macmillan died October 25,

1971; therefore, the University has until October 25, 1976

to establish a School of Veterinary Medicine to receive

the bequest which is presently estimated at $500,000. He

recommended that Presidents Miller and Zorn be requested

to consider the feasibility of establishing such a School

on their respective Campuses and that their separate

reports be presented at the same time but not later than

January, 1973.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



39. Report on Declaratory Judgment Complaint



Mr. Hug reported that a declaratory judgment complaint had

been filed against First National Bank of Nevada, as

trustee, Stanford University, University of California,

Davis, and University of Nevada System, by Elidia Casteneda,

a beneficiary under the will of Mrs. Macmillan. Mr. Hug

noted that in discussing the matter with the University of

California's attorney, a suggestion was made that he, as

Counsel for the University of Nevada, represent both Nevada

and California.



Mr. Morris moved that the Board authorize Mr. Hug to also

represent the University of California in the above matter,

should the University of California so request. Motion

seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried without dissent.



40. Higher Education Capital Construction Fund



Chancellor Humphrey presented the following report and

recommendations concerning this fund:



Chapter 118, Statutes of Nevada, 1971, establishes

the Higher Education Capital Construction Fund, pro-

vides for its funding at $5 million per year and

specifies 3 Community College projects totaling

$3,938,000 to be constructed out of the first year's

allocation. The Act also provides as follows: "Unless

specifically directed by an Act of the Legislature

concerning the Higher Education Capital Construction

Fund, the Board of Regents of the University of Nevada

shall determine the order of priority and the needs of

the University of Nevada System with respect to expendi-

tures of available monies in the Higher Education

Capital Construction Fund." On July 1, 1972, there

will, therefore, be $1,062,000 in this fund which may

be used as directed by the Board of Regents.



The Board approved a 1971-73 Capital Improvement Pro-

gram for submission to the Governor and Legislature

which included 18 projects to be funded by appropri-

ation or bonds. (Attachment A showing a list of

projects and legislative action was included with

agenda, for UNR, totaling $1,804,000 to be funded

from the UNR Capital Improvement Fee Fund reserve

was allocated to fund the UNR P. E. Complex.)



In developing a recommendation for the use of the

$1,062,000 I have consulted the Presidents and reviewed

the Board-approved 1971-73 Capital Improvement Program.

President Zorn has requested $883,218 for a modifica-

tion of UNS Priority Number 11, the UNLV Natatorium.

(Attachment B, reflecting President Zorn's request and

a budget for the project, was included with the agenda

identified as Pgs. 4 & 5 of Ref. 12.) President Miller

has submitted a series of projects in priority order,

totalling $1,540,000. (President Miller's list, At-

tachment C, was included with the agenda, identified

as Pgs. 6 & 7 of Ref. 32.)



I believe that we should endeavor to use this $1,062,000

to accomplish needed projects on the existing priority

lists and to improve our position in presenting projects

for 1973-75. I also believe that we should seek to

secure equitable treatment among the Divisions and units

of the System in this once only windfall of unexpected

funds.



I recommend the following projects be authorized:



UNLV Land Acquisition from Nevada Southern

Foundation $ 470,000

UNR Priorities 1 & 2 from Attachment C 400,000

UNS and CCD Administration Building

($328,000 requested 1971-73) 192,000

$1,062,000



This would allow UNLV to pay the mortgage bonds due

July 1, 1972, assuming that the outstanding receivable

are collected by that time. (Attachment D showing work

sheet concerning this project was included with the

agenda, identified as Pg. 8 of Ref. 32.) It would

also provide several much needed projects for UNR which

could not be given consideration earlier due to the

change in funding for the Gymnasium. And, finally, it

would provide at least minimal space for the UNS and

CCD administrative offices by the time of the expira-

tion of the present lease.



When a draft of this memorandum was discussed with the

Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet, President Zorn stated

that he would prefer to have additional money for Campus

landscaping projects and wait until 1973 to settle

accounts with the NSU Land Foundation. If this course

is followed, it is recommended that $435,000 be allocat-

ed to both UNR and UNLV.



(Ref. 32 referred to above is filed with permanent minutes.)



Chancellor Humphrey also noted the recommendations received

from Mr. William Hancock, State Planning Board (identified

as Ref. 32B and filed with permanent minutes).



Mr. Jacobsen asked for comments from the Presidents. Mr.

Bilbray suggested that first a vote be taken to determine

if the Natatorium was to be funded.



Mr. Morris referred to Page 3 of Ref. 32 which reflected a

comparison of the Capital Improvement Program request for

1971-73 to the subsequent legislative action. He noted

that of the first 10 items on the list, all but one had

been either funded or partially funded by the legislative

appropriation or through allocation from the Higher Educa-

tion Capital Construction Fund or through revenue bonds.

The one not funded was #2, the Peavine Flood Control

project. He noted that the next priority on the list is

#11, the UNLV Natatorium for $1,335,000. He pointed out

that President Zorn has indicated that this remains the

number one priority for UNLV and that he had indicated

that here would be savings associated with bidding the

Natatorium at the same time as the P. E. Complex is bid.



Mr. Morris urged that the Board stick with the priorities

which have been established and not place itself in a

position of having to go back to the Legislature for fund-

ing of a project which this money could take care of.



Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that, as indicated in his

recommendation, there are two priority lists -- in addi-

tion to the items on the list to which Mr. Morris referred,

there is a second Board approved list of 9 projects,

totalling $1,804,000 to be funded from the UNR Capital

Improvement Fee Fund reserve. He recalled that in the

subsequent negotiations with the Legislature, in an at-

tempt to get both physical education projects through,

the Board agreed to withdraw the request for appropriated

money for the UNR project so it would not compete with the

UNLV request. The UNR project was then reduced in scope

sufficient to be funded exclusively by UNR revenue bonds.

As a result of that decision, all of the 9 projects which

were to be funded by that reserve were sacrificed. Chan-

cellor Humphrey stated that he therefore believed it equi-

table that at least part of the projects on that separate

list be restored. He agreed that a 50-50 split is arbi-

trary but pointed out that sufficient argument might be

made for spending the entire $1,062,000 at UNR or at UNLV,

or at either of the two other Divisions. However, he said

it seemed a reasonable compromise to try to take care of

the most urgent projects on each Campus to the extent

possible to be a fair and reasonable division of the funds.



President Miller pointed out that the Peavine Flood Control

project, #2 on the 1971-73 list, was a cooperative govern-

mental project in which the University was required to

participate and which has since been abandoned. He sup-

ported Chancellor Humphrey's earlier comments regarding the

separate list of priorities which were to be funded from

UNR's Capital Improvement Fee monies. President Miller

recalled that when the request for a State appropriation

for the UNR P. E. Complex was withdrawn, and the Capital

Improvement Fee money used for revenue bonds for that

project, that in effect sacrificed a Board approved pri-

ority list.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval of an allocation of $883,218

to UNLV for construction of a Natatorium. Motion seconded

by Mr. Morris.



Miss Thompson expressed some confusion over the difference

in the present request of $883,218 and the original re-

quest to the Legislature of $1,338,000. President Zorn

stated that there had been a reassessment by the architect

and it is believed that the revised estimate of $883,218

will not only take care of the construction but all of the

other costs such as the architect and other professional

fees.



Mr. Jacobsen urged that in a sense of fair play it did not

seem appropriate for one Division to insist on having such

a large portion of the total amount available when the

needs of the other Division were just as acute.



Mr. Steninger expressed a preference for following the

priority list but asked the Chancellor to clarify the re-

lationship of the second priority list.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that in retrospect, he must

conclude that a mistake had been made in having two lists.

He explained that one list was approved for those projects

for which the Legislature was requested to make an appro-

priation or to authorize a revenue bond issue. A second

list was prepared, also approved by the Board, of projects

which were proposed for funding from the UNR Capital Im-

provement Fee Fund reserve, and which were also approved

by the Legislature. This second list was submitted to the

Legislature, not for funding, but in order to honor a com-

mitment that major projects funded from Capital Improvement

Fee monies would go to them for review.



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in the final days of the

Legislature, it appeared that both P. E. Complexes would

be endangered unless one were withdrawn. At Mr. Morris'

suggestion, President Miller agreed to withdraw the UNR

request and at the same time requested authority to use

the existing Capital Improvement Fee money to service a

revenue bond for the UNR project. The UNLV project was

then funded by the Legislature. Having proceeded in this

manner, Chancellor Humphrey suggested that both lists

should be considered.



Mr. Bilbray amended his motion to provide that the balance

of $178,782 be allocated to UNR to apply to its priority

list. Mr. Morris agreed to the amendment.



Mr. Bilbray commented that the next item on the priority

list was #11, the UNLV Natatorium, and argued that the pri-

ority list must be followed.



Mr. Guild asked for an explanation of the Board's obliga-

tion to the UNLV Land Foundation.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that the Land Foundation secur-

ed its funds by the sale of mortgage bonds. These are

favorable bonds, he noted, at 5% interest and the holders

have informally agreed that there would be an automatic

extension of those bonds. The bonds are due July 1, 1972.



Mr. Guild asked if the interest payments have been made.

President Zorn stated that interest payments have been

made when due. Chancellor Humphrey explained that the

interest was capitalized in the original issue.



Mr. Guild noted that the University apparently has a legal

commitment for approximately $460,000 to the bond holders

and asked if the informal promise to extend the bonds could

be obtained in writing. President Zorn noted that the

Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Foundation are also

President and Vice President of the bank which holds the

bonds, and both were present at a meeting of the Founda-

tion at which the assurance was given.



President Zorn also noted that the Foundation was of ex-

treme use to the University and cautioned that nothing

be done to restrict its maneuverability for a land ex-

change. He suggested that this was a bad time to buy

land from the Foundation. He added that, with the assur-

ance of the bond holder that the issues may be refinanced

against the same security, it would be better to keep the

bonds alive and keep liquidity in the Foundation.



Chancellor Humphrey asked for clarification, pointing out

that buying land from the Foundation would increase their

ability to borrow money, not decrease it.



Mr. Guild asked how long President Zorn would estimate this

obligation could be deferred. He pointed out that the

money is owed and no proposal has been made for its pay-

ment.



President Zorn stated that there is an understanding that

new bonds will replace the old bonds with the same land

as security.



Mr. Bilbray stated that UNLV has some land which might

eventually be sold and which could satisfy this obliga-

tion. He suggested that the University should not worry

about paying off the Land Foundation; rather, it should

be concerned about receiving capital improvements that

are much more important to the Campus than a piece of

land that can be paid off in two years.



Mr. Guild expressed continuing concern about the lack of

documentation which would support the statements that the

University could continue to defer a legal obligation which,

he stated, was felt sufficiently pressing to request fund-

ing from the Legislature in 1971.



Mr. Bilbray agreed that the Board has a legal obligation,

but stated that Mr. Parry Thomas and Mr. Jerome Mack have

both given verbal assurance that the bonds will not be

called when due.



Mr. Mc Dermott stated that in his opinion Mr. Guild's

question was valid and suggested that an attempt to made

to reach Mr. Thomas or Mr. Mack and get the necessary

assurance in writing.



Mr. Morris pointed out that in the opinion of the UNLV

Administration and of the members of the Board of Regents

who, he said, have been privy to the representations which

President Zorn has reported, there is no question about

the obligation of the Foundation; i. e., that it is a low

priority item. He stated that the Foundation recognized

that it is not good business for the University to spend

money to retire these obligations simply because they

exist. He suggested again that the priority list be

followed.



Mr. Jacobsen pointed out that the No. 1 priority on the

list which Mr. Morris referred to is the land acquisition

for UNLV.



President Miller recalled that he had agreed to withdraw

the UNR P. E. Complex from the request to the Legislature

and had agreed to use Capital Improvement Fee money for

revenue bonds. In doing that, he pointed out, the fund-

ing for the second Board approved priority list was no

longer available. He requested that the Board restore at

least part of the funding by allocation of $435,000 of

the slot machine tax money to UNR, leaving an equal amount

to UNLV.



Dr. Anderson suggested that this approach was equitable,

pointing out that UNR had relinquished $1.5 million in

capital improvements so as not to complete with UNLV's

request for a State appropriation and suggested that this

should be considered a higher priority than the Natatorium.



Mr. Bilbray restated his motion to allocate $883,218 to

the UNLV Natatorium and the balance of $178,782 to the

UNR capital improvement list submitted with Ref. 32, and

requested a roll call vote:



Yes - Mr. Bilbray, Mr. Grant, Mr. Mc Dermott, Mr.

Morris, Miss Thompson, Mr. Steninger

No - Dr. Anderson, Mr. Guild, Mr. Jacobsen, Mrs.

Knudtsen, Dr. Lombardi



Motion was declared to have carried.
