5. Ladino Dairy



President Armstrong read the proposal on sale procedure of

the Ladino Dairy, submitted by Regent Crumley in accord with

his assignment, as follows:



PROPOSED METHOD OF SALE OF LADINO FARM



(1) Notice of sale to be published in the local newspapers

for approximately four weeks.



(2) Notice will include time and place for opening of bids.

Each bid to include a certified check for a minimum of

10% of the bid figure.



(3) The published notice to include information to the

effect that at the time of the bid opening, all bidders

present may have the privilege of raising their bids at

5% "levels". In effect, this would result in more or

less of an auction immediately following the bid open-

ings.



(4) The property then to be sold to the highest bidder,

provided such bid is acceptable to the Boad of Regents.

In this connection, the published notice of sale would

stipulate that the Board of Regents reserves the right

to reject any and all bids.



It is my opinion that we should sell the Ladino Farm proper-

ty in one piece, and not as separate smaller parcels. It

would further be my recommendation that we require a minimum

of $100,000 down, 7% on the remaining unpaid balance, to be

amortized over a period of five to seven years.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously that the report be accepted and the procedure

outlined followed, pending study and approval by the

Attorney General.



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

unanimously that Mr. Crumley be given a vote of thanks for

his work on the Ladino Dairy sale project.



6. Wiche Report



Dr. Armstrong reported as Chairman of the Nevada Commission.



Governor Sawyer appointed Dr. Anderson of the Board of

Regents, Dr. John Morrison of the Department of English, and

President Armstrong to serve as the Nevada Commissioners.

The Commissioners reviewed applications and certified six

candidates in medicine; three have been accepted and three

are pending. Citizens' Advisory Committees of three members

each have been selected for the areas of medicine, dentistry

and veterinary medicine.



The re-payment provision in the State Law has discouraged

some applicants, and two applicants withdrew upon learning

of the re-payment regulations. While the Commissioners

favor elimination of this re-payment provision, legislation

will not be sought at the coming session because of the fact

that the Law has not been in operation long enough to give

it a fair trial.



7. Bid Opening - Revenue Bond Certificates



It was now 10 A.M., PST, the time set and duly advertised

for opening of bids for public sale of the University of

Nevada Housing Revenue Certificates of 1959, in the princi-

ple amount of $1,382,000.00, for construction of a men's

dormitory, housing for married students and faculty, and a

dining hall. Room 205, Morrill Hall, was declared to be

the President's Office for the purpose of the bid opening.

Comptroller Hayden checked at 10 A.M. his own Office, the

regular Office of the President and the U. S. mail for bids

which might have come in, and confirmed the fact that no

other bids had been received. The Government's bid sub-

mitted by Housing and Home Finance Agency was read by Presi-

dent Armstrong as follows:

Coutts of Washington, D. C., and Mr. A. E. Holgate, Reno

Membership Chairman. Colonel Coutts spoke for the group,

saying that the Conference in Reno would be held April 11-

22 of this year in the auditorium of the Education building

on the Campus. Purpose of the Conference is the education

and information of community leaders for participation in

a military-civilian team in times of National emergency.

The Regents indicated full cooperation by the University.



9. Cancer Symposium



Dr. Anderson called attention to the fact that the Uni-

versity had co-sponsored a Cancer Symposium in Reno in

March, 1959, and that it had proved to be a worthwhile

undertaking for the University. He now proposed that the

Nevada Southern Regional Division likewise co-sponsor with

unanimously that the Nevada Southern Regional Division co-

sponsor the Cancer Symposium, already scheduled, but at no

Mr. Germain discussed the bid opening for the building,

which was attended by Mr. Gibson, Mr. Miller and Mr. Bissell

of the State Planning Board, Mr. Grant and Mr. Germain of

the Board of Regents. There was a complication in that the

low bid exceeded the funds available by $24,990, but Mr.

Grant and Mr. Germain did not want to call for another bid

opening on the possibility that later bids might not be as

favorable. Mr. Bissell indicated that he would take a

telephone poll of the Planning Board members on the bids

submitted and notify the Board of Regents of the decision.

President Armstrong reported the HHFA projects were in-

spected in December and it was found that married housing

is within 70% of completion, Dining Hall within 60-65% of

completion, and the Men's Dormitory within 50% of comple-

tion. Dr. Armstrong noted that all are slightly behind

schedule. The Fine Arts building is approximately 75%

complete, and final completion may be a little later than

expected. Bids for Mackay School of Mines corrections were

opened and came within the construction budget. Agricul-

tural Mechanics Facility bids were opened and were well

under the amount estimated. Library bids were opened and

the bid was awarded to the next to lowest bidder for reasons

of licensing. Mr. Porter informed the Regents that he had

ruled that the State Planning Board was correct in awarding

the bid to Stolte Construction Company, rather than to

Nomellini, the lowest bidder.



13. Women's Dormitory



In accord with previous action of the Board of Regents, the

University has proceeded with arrangements for construction

of a Women's Dormitory. Adoption of the following resolu-

tion was recommended by President Armstrong to accompany the

application to HHFA.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried unani-

mously that the resolution be adopted as follows:



RESOLUTION NO. 60-2



WHEREAS, Chapter 360, 1957 Statutes of Nevada, authorizes

the Boad of Regents of the University of Nevada to borrow

to make application to the United States Government Housing

and Home Finance Agency for loan assistance under Title IV

BOARD OF REGENTS OF

THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA



14. Investment of Proceeds, 90,000 Acre and 72 Section Grants



President Armstrong reported on a letter dated November 3,

1959, written to State Treasurer Franks by the Attorney

General, and stating in summary: "The Board of Regents has

the power to invest and reinvest the funds that have been

derived from each of these Grants. This power is of con-

stitutional origin. The State Treasurer has the power and

duty to hold the funds and securities that have been derived

from each of these Grants. This power and duty is of leg-

islative origin." The informal decision was reached that

since the University cannot invest in other than bonds,

which is their present investment, there is no point in

having the funds turned over to the University. Deputy

Attorney General Porter will do further checking and make

later report.



15. Honorary Degrees



President Armstrong proposed that, before bringing specific

recommendations to the Board of Regents, a committee of the

Board be appointed to receive recommendations for Honorary

Degrees and for Distinguished Nevadan Awards.



Motion by Mr. Tyson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried unani-

mously that the Chair be empowered to appoint a committee

of the Board of Regents to receive and study recommendations

for Honorary Degrees and for Distinguished Nevadan Awards,

prior to their consideration by the Board of Regents.



Vice Chairman Lombardi appointed the committee as follows:



Mr. Arnold, Chairman

Mr. Tyson

Dr. Anderson

Mr. Crumley

Dr. Lombardi



16. Student Loans



President Armstrong distributed and discussed an analysis

of student loans as of August 30, 1958 and October 30, 1959,

prepared by Mr. Hayden. The report gave the following

breakdown:



August 30, 1958 October 30, 1959



Number of Number of

Loans Amount Loans Amount

----- ---------- ----- ----------

Current 35 $ 9,252.30 117 $43,726.00

10 - 20 yrs. 20 1,635.80 19 1,270.00

Over 20 47 3,427.81 53 4,064.61

--- ---------- --- ----------

159 21,706.30 257 $61,794.43



There was some discussion as to loan collections, and legal

and moral obligations in regard to loans.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the President be authorized to take what-

ever action he might deem appropriate in collecting student

loans.



17. Momand Estate



President Armstrong read a report on the Estate of Agnes B.

Momand submitted by Breed, Abbott & Morgan under date of

December 3, 1959. The Estate is nearing closure and the

letter stated that "the present market value of all of the

assets which will eventually be payable to the University

is roughly $700,000". The Law Firm requested payment for

disbursements in the amount of $273.13, but preferred to

leave the matter of compensation open pending the closing of

the Estate after the final account. President Armstrong

recommended approval of payment at this time of the state-

ment for $273.13.



Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that payment be allowed on the statement for

disbursements in the amount of $273.13.



18. Whited Estate



President Armstrong reported on receipt of Decree of

Settlement of Thirteenth and Final Account of American

Trust Company as Trustee under the Will of Jesse M. Whited,

deceased. The Attorney for the Estate enclosed for signa-

ture copies of the form of receipt covering the property

ordered distributed to the University under the Decree of

Settlement.



Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the Vice Chairman be authorized to sign

the receipt on behalf of the Board.



19. National Science Foundation Student Fee



Terms of the Grant for the National Science Foundation

Summer Institute require that stipend holders not be charged

tuition or fees. President Armstrong recommended that, in

keeping with terms of the Grant already accepted, Summer

session fees be waived for students participating in the

program.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously that student Summer session fees be waived for

students participating in the National Science Foundation

Summer Institute for 1960.



20. Summer Sessions



President Armstrong presented the request of Dean Carlson,

with approval of Dr. Wood and his own recommendation, that

salaries for Summer session staff in Las Vegas, which is

now at the rate of $150.00 per credit, be brought into line

with salaries paid on the Reno Campus, by allowing the fol-

lowing base salary schedule:



Professor, Associate Professor $175.00 per credit

Assistant Professor, Instructor 150.00 per credit



Transportation allowance requested for those who are not

regular members of the staff would be not to exceed the

equivalent of round trip first-class air fare (less tax).

It was further recommended that an allowance be made to meet

the additional costs of living for this same group, not to

exceed $5.00 per day for the period beginning with the first

day of actual instruction through the last day of instruc-

tion covered by the contract. Flexibility in the granting

of transportation and per diem allowances was requested to

strengthen the position of the University of Nevada in

securing persons from out of State who would be desirable

additions to the Summer session staff. President Armstrong

recommended approval of these changes in Summer session

arrangements.



Dr. Wood spoke on behalf of the needs of the Reno Campus

Summer session and asked that they have the privilege of

using the same transportation and per diem allowances for

the Reno Campus. President Armstrong recommended that this

provision be included in any action by the Regents.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried

unanimously that the Summer Sessions recommendations above

be approved effective with the 1960 Summer sessions.



21. American College Testing Program



President Armstrong discussed the new A. C. T. Program for

prospective College students. The Program is intended to

take the place of most of the testing which the University

does during Orientation Week. The nominal expense of $3.00

is borne by the individual student. The request for the

University of Nevada to participate has been made by Dean

Basta of Student Affairs, and endorsed by the University

Council and the Academic Deans. President Armstrong recom-

mended approval for the University to become a participat-

ing member of the A. C. T. Program this year on a voluntary,

but recommended, basis, ultimately to become a requirement

for entrance if the preliminary experience with the Program

is satisfactory.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried

unanimously that the program be approved at this time on the

basis that the University request voluntary participation.



The meeting was recessed at 12:00 noon for luncheon.



The recessed meeting was called to order at 2:10 P.M. by Vice

Chairman Lombardi with all present who were at the morning

session.



22. Archie C. Grant Hall



The Regents discussed with Deputy Attorney General Porter

a proposal for naming a building on the Las Vegas Campus

for Chairman Grant, and received assurances that no dif-

ficulty would be involved, since the legislative intent was

that no one in public office should benefit in a pecuniary

way from any such action. In this case, the honor to Mr.

Grant would be for service rendered the University.



Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Mr. Tyson, carried

unanimously that the new Education building on the Las

Vegas Campus be named the "Archie C. Grant Hall".



23. Athletic Finances



Mr. Tyson discussed the lack of funds for public relations,

recruiting and similar purposes in the Athletic Department.

In the discussion which followed, the question was raised

as to how much money, other than the student fee, gate and

concession receipts, went for support of Inter-Collegiate

Athletics, with the exception of salaries and maintenance

of plant. Mr. Germain suggested that the Regents' Athletic

Committee meet on the day before the next meeting of the

Board to consider the athletic financial situation. In the

meantime, a study will be made by the Comptroller's Office

to show source of income for Athletics and detail of expend-

iture.



24. Fleischmann Endowment



President Armstrong discussed the request of Dean Adams that

income from Standard Brands stock, which Mr. Fleischmann

gave to the University as an endowment for the Ladino Dairy

be kept separate from the total income from endowments. The

matter had been referred to Mr. Hayden for recommendation,

and Mr. Hayden recommended as follows:



"Since all our endowment funds are now pooled together

and being handled by the Trust Department of the First

National Bank, I strongly recommend to you that we do

not specifically earmark any income for any particular

purpose or fund, but distribute income on basis of the

percentage each fund bears to the total endowment

funds."



President Armstrong recommended that the principle stated

by Mr. Hayden be adopted in all cases except those in which

the donor specifies otherwise.



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

unanimously that the income from the Fleischmann endowment

for support of agriculture be handled in accord with the

present practice, as recommended by Dr. Armstrong, and

that the present practice be affirmed and approved.



25. The Association of Higher Education



The Association of Higher Education will hold a national

conference on higher education in Chicago March 6-9. The

President urged that a member of the Board attend. Mr.

Germain was selected to represent the Board, and Mr. Arnold

was named alternate.



26. Social Security



The University Faculty Committee on Insurance, headed by

Dean Weems, proposed that the University endorse a letter

to the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, with

copies to the Nevada Congressional Delegation, asking sup-

port of Federal legislation which would permit particpation

of the Social Security Program by individuals who have par-

ticipated prior to coming to the University of Nevada, by

picking up their Social Security payments on the same basis

as self-employed persons.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried

unanimously that the Board of Regents go on record as en-

dorsing the Federal legislation recommended above.



27. Radiological Laboratory



President Armstrong reported that a letter had been received

from W. H. Hoffman, Supervisory Realty Officer, Acquisition

and Disposal Field Office, General Services Administration,

and also a letter from John R. Mc Bride of the Southwestern

Radiological Health Facility, Las Vegas, stating the intent

of the Federal Government to leave a space in the projected

Science and Technology building, Southern Regional Division

of the University of Nevada, for the use of the Radiological

Laboratory in Las Vegas. This puts the University in posi-

tion to justify the request for funds from the Legislature

for the building.



28. Faculty Prizes



President Armstrong reported that three faculty members had

submitted papers under the Faculty Prize Awards Plan and

these papers were submitted to a Faculty Committee of Eval-

uation for the $1,000 Faculty Awards for study and recom-

mendation. The recommendation, submitted by Dr. Armstrong

with his recommendation for approval, was that Professor

Hoyt be granted one of the $1,000 awards, and that Profes-

sors Chase and Tucker be commended for their efforts, but

informed that their papers do not meet requirments for the

award as prescribed by the Board of Regents.



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

unanimously that the Regents authorize granting one of the

$1,000 awards to Professor Hoyt, and that the remaining

money in the fund be held for further study in regard to the

Prize Awards plan.



29. Student Fees



A duplicated report and recommendations on Proposed Fee and

Tuition Changes was submitted to the President by Dr. Wood,

Chairman of the Fee Study Committee, and distributed to the

Regents for study and information. Dr. Wood spoke of the

work of his Committee, saying that the purpose of the

Committee was to see if there were any areas where fees

should be modified, changed or altered. Dr. Wood asked

that consideration be given at the present meeting of two

items to go into effect for the coming Summer session.

These recommendations were discussed and President Armstrong

recommended approval, as follows:



Present Proposed Amount & Per Cent

per Cr. per Cr. Proposed Increase

------- ------- -----------------

Summer Session Fee

------------------

Resident $10.00 $11.00 $1.00 10.0%

Non-Resident

(out-of-State) 12.00 15.00 3.00 25.0%



Auditor's Fee

------------------ 7.50 9.00 1.50 20.0%



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the fee changes above listed be approved,

effective June 1, 1960.



The President asked that each member of the Board study the

fee study recommendations for action at a later meeting.



30. Leaves of Absence and Related Matters



Mr. Arnold, Chairman of the Regents' Committee appointed to

study a Leaves of Absence policy, distributed copies of his

Committee's report. President Armstrong discussed the pro-

posed policy statement and recommended approval as follows:



Policy Statement on Leaves of Absence and Related Matters

for Faculty Members of the University of Nevada



A. Leaves of Absence without Salary



1. Authorization



Leave of Absence without salary may be granted by

the President, with the approval of the Board of

Regents, to a faculty member who wishes to absent

himself from his University duties to undertake

research work, advanced study, consultation, teacher

exchange, governmental appointments, etc. Approval

of the conditions under which the Leave is author-

ized shall be in writing and a copy given the appli-

cant.



2. Procedure



Request for Leave without salary is made through the

Department Chairman and Dean of the College, with

adequate advance notice. It is presumed that the

Leave can be arranged without seriously impairing

the work of the Department and that it will benefit

the University or the professional advancement of

the individual.



3. Restrictions



Leave without salary is granted only to a faculty

member who has been employed by the University for

at least one year. No Leave of Absence shall be

granted for a longer period than two years, except

for the purpose of pursuing activities which will

tend to further the education of such a person in

his special field. The faculty member is expected

to return to the University for a period of time

at least equal to that of his last contract.



B. Sabbatical Leave



(Note: In approving the following policy on Sabbatical

Leaves of Absence, the Board of Regents wishes to point

out that the rate of implementation of the Sabbatical

Leave policy will depend upon availability of funds.)



1. Eligibility



Any faculty member who has attained professorial or

equivalent rank (for example, assistant professor

or higher), and who has served full time (on eithr

a 10 or 12 months contract) for six or more salaried

years (including time at the instructor level) at

the University of Nevada is entitled to a Sabbatical

Leave. Time toward Sabbatical Leave is not cumula-

tive beyond six years, except when the University is

unable to grant a requested leave.



2. Options Available



Qualified applicants for Sabbatical Leave shall have

two alternatives: a full year of leave at 2/3 sal-

ary, or a half year at full salary. The taking of

Sabbatical Leave, of course, will in no way inter-

fere with the continuing employment of an individ-

ual by the University, or with his retirement pro-

gram, or any other rights normally associated with

his work at the University.



3. Procedure



3.1 Persons desiring Sabbatical Leave shall submit

their applications to the President through

their Department Chairman and Dean, in the Fall

semester of the year prior to the academic year

in which they desire the leave. Application

forms are available in the Central Personnel

Office.



3.2 The President may appoint a Sabbatical Leave

Committee to assist in selecting those to be

granted Sabbatical Leave. In making its recom-

mendations, the Committee should consider both

the seniority of the applicant and the merit of

the application.



(New) 3.3 In case a member of the Sabbatical Leave Com-

mittee shall desire Sabbatical Leave, his ap-

plication shall follow the procedure outlined

in paragraph 3.1 and shall not be referred to

the Committee.



3.4 Those who delay their applications one or more

years after they become eligible, and unsuc-

cessful candidates for Sabbatical Leave who re-

submit their application, will be assigned pri-

ority of consideration.



4. Obligations Upon Taking Sabbatical Leave



4.1 Upon completion of his Sabbatical Leave, the

faculty member must return to his University

duties for a period of time at least equal to

that of his last annual contract.



4.2 Additional outside income -- for example,

Grants-in-Aid or Fellowships -- may be accepted

during the Leave provided it contributes to the

individual's professional development or his

future usefulness to the University.



4.3 Acknowledgment of Sabbatical assistance should

be given in any publications resulting from

work accomplished during the Sabbatical year.



4.4 A written report concerning Sabbatical Leave

activities is to be sent to the President with

a copy to the Central Personnel Office.



C. Sick Leave, Extended Sick Leave, Emergency Leave, Health

Examinations and Related Matters



1.1 In cases of illness or accident among faculty mem-

bers, Leave, if necessary, shall be granted for 30

working days at full salary.



** 1.2 Where a physician certifies that the faculty member

is unable to resume his duties at the end of a Sick

Leave of 30 working days, the faculty member may,

with the approval of the President and the Board of

Regents, be granted Extended Sick Leave for a per-

iod not to exceed 12 months including the initial

30 working days of illness.



(New) 1.3 If, at the end of the 12 month period, a physician

certifies that the faculty member is still unable

to resume his duties, his appointment shall be ter-

minated. During the Extended salaried Sick Leave,

no Annual Leave shall be earned.



1.4 Short Emergency Leaves may be necessary in the

event of serious illness in the family, death or

similar emergencies. Such Leave will normally be

granted by the Dean.



1.5 Cases of injury or accident in connection with the

work of faculty members are covered by the regula-

tions of the Nevada Industrial Commission. In or-

der to assure this protection for out-of-State tra-

vel, requests should always be submitted in advance

by faculty members conducting University business,

attending meetings, etc., even if work is under-

taken outside of University hours and at the facul-

ty member's own expense.



1.6 Health insurance can be obtained at a group rate

without a physical examination, if applied for

within the first 30 days of service.



1.7 The University may authorize, at its own expense,

the University Physician to arrange for voluntary

health examinations for individual faculty members.

The services of the Infirmary are not available to

faculty except for emergency first aid of injuries

sustained on Campus.



D. Annual and Terminal Leave



** 1. Amount of Annual Leave Authorized



All faculty members on a 12-months appointment earn

salaried Leave at the rate of 22 working days for

each year of service. Earned leave is taken at a

time approved by the Dean of the College concerned.

A faculty member on a 12-months appointment may

accumulate Leave up to a maximum of 44 working days.

The Annual Leave allotment of faculty members with a

10-months appointment is given in the form of auth-

orized holidays and recesses within the academic

year.



** 2. Terminal Leave (Applies Only to 12-Months

Appointments)



Any staff member who, upon resignation, retirement

or other separation from the University, has earned

a vacation under the provisions of Annual Leave,

shall be credited with any portion of that Leave

earned but not taken at the time of separation. In

no case, however, may such terminal Leave exceed a

period of two calendar months (44 working days).

Faculty members who breach their contract will not

be entitled to any accumulated leave.



E. Military Leaves



1. University faculty members on 12-months work ap-

pointments who are active components of Federal

Reserve Forces or Nevada National Guard are en-

titled to serve under orders on training duty with-

out loss of regular compensation for a period not

to exceed 15 working days in any one calendar year.

Such Military Leave of Absence shall be in addition

to any Vacation or Sick Leave to which such staff

members might otherwise be entitled. Authorized

Military Leave of Absence without salary may be

granted for periods in excess of 15 working days.

Faculty members on Miliary Leave will be credited

with seniority and salary adjustments as though they

were in regular service, provided they have had one

year or more continuous service with the University

of Nevada.



2. In time of war or National emergency, a Leave with-

out pay may be granted if the faculty member is

drafted by Selective Service, is ordered to or vol-

unteers for active duty as a reservist, is called

or volunteers to serve in Federally-sponsored

scientific research and development, or is instruct-

ed by Selective Service to enter defense or alter-

native service work in lieu of military service;

provided that no Leaves may be granted to any staff

member who would not normally be re-employed at the

termination of the period of employment current at

the time of his entry into such service or defense

work; and provided further that no Leaves are ordin-

arily granted to persons employed on war projects

or an activity under government contract; the Leave

terminates one year following the end of the war or

comparable National emergency, or, if earlier, one

year following the date of the faculty member's

discharge, separation, or termination of service.



3. Faculty members applying for Military Leave must

present a copy of their military orders or other

substantial evidence. Certified copies of dis-

charge papers or other evidence must be submitted

to the Central Personnel Office for reinstatement.



F. Leave for Judicial Service



1. Appearance in connection with the justifiable pros-

ecution of legal matters is considered a Short-Term

Leave, if it is for periods less than 30 days, and

will be granted informally by the Administration

without loss of salary. In special cases, salaried

Leave for longer periods may be authorized by the

President and Board of Regents. Customarily, teach-

ing faculty are excused from jury duty. For other

service, such as expert witness testimony, it is

necessary to obtain permission in advance from the

President.



** Indicates some modification or revision has been made.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Tyson, carried unani-

mously that the policy statement be adopted, subject to

clearance by the Office of the Attorney General.



31. Southern California Alumni Meeting



Mr. Germain reported that Mr. Grant, Mr. Elwell and he at-

tended the recent meeting of the Southern California Alumni

and that it was very successful. Dr. Wood was the principal

speaker and told of the University's growth and future ex-

pansion. Mr. Germain commended all who participated and be-

lieved much good was done for the University.



The meeting adjourned at 3:35 P.M.



The next meeting was set for Saturday, March 5, 1960.
