tion". Mr. Humphrey proposed, and Dr. Armstrong recommend-

The Committee met at 12 o'clock noon at the Holiday Hotel.

Armstrong and Business Manager N. D. Humphrey. Represent-

ing the First National Bank of Nevada were Mr. R. O. Kwapil,

October 21, 1963, in which he reviewed certain low yield

growth stock as requested by the Committee September 20,

1963. He repeated his recommendation that these stocks

should be retained. After considerable discussion it was

agreed by the Committee that no stock would be sold at this

time.



It was agreed that a meeting would be called in January,

1964. Mr. Cord's office will advise Mr. Humphrey of Mr.

Cord's availability after January 6, 1964.



Respectfully submitted,



/s/ Neil D. Humphrey

Acting Secretary



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unani-

mously that the minutes be accepted.



6. S. J. Hall Property



President Armstrong reviewed that more than a year ago, the

University received 30% of a parcel of land in Clark County

and later received an addition 40%, making a total of 70%.

The question has arisen as to whether or not to dispose of

the property. The matter was discussed, including a memo

from Mr. Humphrey that, being public property, if sale is

desired, it would have to be advertised for bids, and if

none were acceptable, it could then be negotiated. It was

agreed informally to postpone any action pending further

developments.



7. Main Station Farm Development Program



Dr. Armstrong distributed and discussed a summary from Dean

Bohmont of the accomplishments to date and modifications in

the plans for future development. This material has been

reviewed by Mr. Humphrey and in a memorandum of January 2,

1964, Mr. Humphrey stated that he had no adverse reactions

to Dean Bohmont's proposals, and in the same memorandum in-

dicated how these changes can be implemented.



The President recommended approval of the revised six-year

development plan, and approval of the necessary fund trans-

fers to accomplish the program.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the revised six-year

plan for development of the Main Station Field Laboratory

be approved.



8. Center for Western North American Studies



President Armstrong reviewed that at a previous meeting of

the Board, appointment of a committee consisting of faculty

and Regents was approved to study the possible development

of a Center for Western North American Studies. Represent-

atives of the Board were Regents Magee and Anderson. As a

result of that committee meeting, a report was submitted

to the President on a pilot project. An ad hoc Faculty

Board was then appointed to draw up a definite plan of oper-

ation and a budget. The report has now been received and

copies have been distributed to the Regents. President

Armstrong recommended approval of the report, setting forth

a plan of work and budget for the pilot project of the pro-

posed Center for Western North American Studies. The Pres-

ident further recommended that the sum of $10,000 necessary

to underwrite the support requested for the project be fund-

ed from the Board of Regents Special Projects Funds, and

that from this sum $8000 to $8500 be designated to under-

write the salary of a faculty position for a specialist in

Western History for the academic year 1964-65.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unani-

mously by roll call vote that the recommendation, as pre-

sented, be approved.



In discussion, it was pointed out that the timing of this

project provides an excellent opportunity for it to be

brought to public attention through the Centennial Committee

coming as it does, in the State's Centennial Year.

11. Foreign Students



President Armstrong quoted the statement in the current

catalog (page 40) that all students residing in University

residence halls are required to eat at the University Din-

ing Commons. The Foreign Student Advisor in the Office of

Student Affairs had called attention to the difficulty this

regulation imposes on foreign students. Some cannot adjust

to the taste or type of food, others have religious dietary

requirements which cannot be met in the Dining Commons. The

result of the ruling is that foreign students tend to live

off-campus, which is expensive and which deprives them of

contacts with American students. Mr. Humphrey had been

asked to study the financial aspects of the situation and

reported that the University can grant the privilege to a

few students to live in the Dormitories and not eat in the

Dining Commons and still make the profit necessary to meet

all obligations. President Armstrong recommended that the

regulation (page 40 of the current catalog) item #1, be

changed to read:



1) All students residing in University residence halls,

except as here provided, are required to eat at the

University Dining Commons. Foreign students may, upon

the recommendation of the Dean of Student Affairs, re-

side in a residence hall without eating at the Dining

Commons. In such cases, a 25% premium shall be added

to the room charge.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously that the change in regulation, as stated above, be

approved.



12. Building Committee Meeting, December 23, 1963



President Armstrong recommended approval of the minutes,

as follows, and of the actions involved:



The Building Committee met at 7:30 P.M. in the President's

Office.



Present were Committee members: Dr. Fred Anderson, Dr.

Louis E. Lombardi, Mr. Procter Hug, Jr. and Mr. Harold

Jacobsen. Also attending were Regent Molly Magee, Presi-

dent Charles J. Armstrong, Engineer James Rogers, Business

Manager Neil D. Humphrey, William Hancock, Manager of the

State Planning Board, Planning Board members C. V. Isbell

and Peter Echeverria, Messrs. Brown, Sharp and Hicks of

Brown Engineers and Architect William Mc Daniel.



Stadium - Reno



Chairman Anderson reviewed Board of Regents action of

December 7, 1963, which disapproved the preliminary plans

for the new Mackay Stadium and requested that additional

excavation be planned which would lower the Stadium floor

by 8 feet. He read a letter from William E. Hancock, Plan-

ning Board Manager, dated December 16, which reported that

the Planning Board had voted unanimously to "recommend to

the Regents Building Committee that they reconsider their

thoughts of lowering the Stadium 8 feet, and the Tennis

Courts remain as shown on the model." The letter also

stated "... if the Board of Regents, after reconsidering

this matter, still felt that the elevation should be dropped

8 feet, they would abide by the Regents' decision in this

matter after noting for the record they did not approve or

sanction this action." The Planning Board recommended im-

mediate action in order that the earth work contract can be

put to bid as soon as practical.



Mr. C. V. Isbell noted that he had agreed with the Board of

Regents' action.



Mr. John Webster Brown stated that by lowering the Stadium

8 feet approximately 1600 seats could be gained but noted

that more than 12,000 seats could be added in the north of

the Stadium at a later date. He said the top of the Stadium

was 300 feet across, hence an addition 8 feet of depth would

not gain protection from the wind. He noted that his recom-

mended elevation of the Stadium floor was 4.604 or only 4

feet higher than the Skidmore, Owings and Merrill Master

Plan specified.



After considerable discussion it was moved by Mr. Hug, sec-

onded by Dr. Lombardi, that: (1) the preliminary plans be

approved for the Stadium as prepared by Brown Engineers,

including elevations, location of Tennis Courts and Playing

Fields; (2) the decision as to location and specifications

of the training quarters and visiting team quarters be de-

layed until January 25, 1964; and (3) Brown Engineers be

instructed to further cut the grade between the parking lot

and the Stadium. Motion passes unanimously.



Chairman Anderson requested a show of hands from all others

present as to whether or not they approved of the Commit-

tee's action. There was no dissent.



Mr. Hug stated that he understood that Brown Engineers were

now fully authorized to proceed to get the earth work con-

tract to bid. There was no dissent.



Fine Arts Building - Nevada Southern



Architect James Mc Daniel presented the final plans of the

Fine Arts building for Nevada Southern and noted that there

were no significant changes from the preliminary plans pre-

viously approved by the Building Committee. President

Armstrong recommended approval. Mr. Jacobsen moved, second-

ed by Dr. Lombardi, that the final plans for the Fine Arts

building at Nevada Southern be approved. Motion passed

unanimously. President Armstrong noted that the Board of

Regents had delegated authority to the Building Committee

to grant final approval to these plans in order that Mr.

Mc Daniel might be paid.



Social Science Building - Nevada Southern



Architect Mc Daniel presented final plans for the Social

Science building at Nevada Southern. Engineer Rogers stated

that he recommended approval of the plans except for the

open stairwell on the west side. He said he had requested

Mr. Mc Daniel to show how a wind break could be constructed

at a later date should this prove to be a problem. Presi-

dent Armstrong read a letter from Dr. John S. Wright, Chair-

man of the Faculty Ad Hoc Committee for the Social Science

building, which stated the committee's approval of the

plans. President Armstrong recommended approval. Dr.

Lombardi moved, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, that the final

plans for the Social Science building at Nevada Southern

be approved. Motion passed unanimously.



Miscellaneous



Engineer Rogers requested that he be authorized to inform

Mr. Capurro that all dairy herd operations on the north

end of the Reno Campus be discontinued by March, 1964. Mr.

Jacobsen moved, seconded by Mr. Hug, that Engineer Rogers

be so authorized. Motion passed unanimously.



President Armstrong reported that Mr. Coe Swobe, President

of the Alumni Association, had requested that permission be

given to Brown Engineers to show and discuss the Stadium at

the next meeting of the Alumni Association. There was no

dissent.



Planning Board Manager, William Hancock, reporting on Nevada

Southern land exchange, stated that the Salton family had

agreed to sell their property for $103,890, plus all closing

costs. This is $15,000 per acre. He stated that the Uni-

versity Land Company had also agreed to sell any part of

their 10.6 acres for $15,000 per acre and give a six month

option for the balance of the acreage at the same price.

It was the consensus of the Building Committee that this

was satisfactory and that approval had been granted by the

Board of Regents on December 7, 1963.



Meeting adjourned at 9:30 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



/s/ Neil D. Humphrey

Acting Secretary



Mr. Germain commented for the record that, had he been able

to attend the meeting, he would have opposed the suggestion

made by the Planning Board regarding the elevation of the

Stadium floor.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously that the minutes, and the actions taken, be approved.



13. Building Committee Meeting, January 24, 1964



At the request of President Armstrong, and in the absence of

Dr. Anderson, Dr. Young read from the minutes as follows,

actions which require approval by the Board:



The Building Committee met at 3 P.M. in the President's

Office.



Present were: Dr. Anderson, Chairman, Mr. Germain, Mr.

Hug, Mr. Jacobsen. Also present: Mr. Davis, Mr. Grant,

Mrs. Magee, Mrs. White, President Armstrong, Vice President

Young, Business Manager Humphrey.



(1) Previous Action of the Committee



Mr. Germain questioned the action of the Building

Committee at its meeting of December 23, 1963, revers-

ing the previous action of the Board of Regents regard-

ing the Physical Education Facility (Phase I) Reno. It

was pointed out that the Board had authorized the Com-

mittee to deal with this matter.



(2) Dormitory and Dining Hall - Las Vegas



Mr. Jack Knighton presented preliminary plans for a

Dormitory and Dining Hall on the Nevada Southern Campus

in Las Vegas. The Dining Hall would feed 150 persons

at a time. The Dormitory would house 120 students,

plus a resident supervisor. Mr. Rogers pointed out

that there should be a contingency on approval, sub-

ject to a report on kitchen layout by the consultant.

He recommended approval. President Armstrong reported

that the Faculty Committee had recommended approval,

and he also recommended approval.



Mr. Hug questioned the size and placement of the win-

dows and the use of the Dormitory on a coeducational

basis. There was considerable discussion regarding

the coeducational aspect, and it was decided that no

other practical way existed for the handling of the

first Dormitory during its initial year of operation.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen,

that the Committee recommend Board approval of the

preliminary plans, with the contingency mentioned.

The motion passed unanimously.



(3) Water Line Right of Way - Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers and President Armstrong recommended that the

Committee approve the granting of an easement 20 feet

wide from Flamingo Road south to the center of the

section line to the Las Vegas Valley Water District,

but with the understanding that the easement will not

be delivered until negotiations on water line costs

with the Church groups are complete.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Germain, that

the Committee recommend Board approval of the above

proposal. The motion passed unanimously.



(4) Church Property - Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers read a letter from Mr. William Hancock

stating that the Executive Committee of the State

Planning Board had directed his office to investigate

all courses of action, including condemnation that

could be taken to acquire the two parcels of property

held by the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day

Saints and the Roman Catholic Church.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen,

that the Committee recommend to the Board that it go

on record as desiring that no action be taken to

acquire the property. The motion passed unanimously.



(5) Rezoning of Property on Flamingo Road - Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers reported that an application to rezone the

property on Flamingo Road had been submitted to the

Clark County Planning Commission. No further action

was necessary.



(6) Acquired Property - Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers reported that the land being purchased for

the Nevada Southern Campus is being acquired in the

name of the State of Nevada and the State Planning

Board. He raised the question as to whether this might

create later problems.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Germain, that

the Committee recommend that the Board request transfer

of title to the University of properities being acquir-

ed, and that such action be taken as soon as possible.

The motion passed unanimously.



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

University Administration be instructed to search out

the titles of all property administered by the Univer-

sity to determine whether or not title is in the name

of the University and to report back to the Committee.

The motion passed unanimously.



(7) Capurro Property - Reno



Mr. Rogers reported that Mr. Vic Capurro has requested

that he be allowed to continue to use the property

north of the Campus for another 6 to 8 months. Mr.

Rogers and the President recommended that the Univer-

sity grant an extension until June 1, 1964.



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

Committee recommend Board approval of the above

recommendation.



(8) Rezoning of Property - Reno



Mr. Rogers reported that the Regional Planning Com-

mission staff has suggested that a street be planned

to cross the north east area of the Campus as part of

the development of privately owned land in that area.

President Armstrong pointed out that the development

is predicated on the owners getting a right-of-way

for a road through the Campus, and he recommended

that the University go on record as not granting such

a right-of-way.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Germain, that

the Committee recommend Board action in line with the

President's recommendation. The motion passed unani-

mously.



(9) Physical Science Project - Reno



Mr. Rogers reported that the Physical Sciences Build-

ing Faculty Committee has recommended that the Chemis-

try section of the Physical Science building be con-

structed first if the entire building is not construct-

ed at one time. President Armstrong so recommended.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Germain, that the

State Planning Board be instructed that, if the Physi-

cal Science building is constructed in increments, the

Chemistry phase be constructed first. Motion passed

unanimously.



(10) Physical Education Facility - Reno



President Armstrong read letter from Dr. G. A. Broten,

Chairman of the Physical Education Facility Faculty

Committee, recommending certain changes in the plans

for the Physical Education Facility (Phase 1) on the

Reno Campus. President Armstrong recommended approval

of these changes consisting of change in location of

locker room building, location of a toilet room facil-

ity for both men and women on the west side of the

Stadium, deletion of the east Stadium seating and re-

lated facilities in view of estimated costs, and lo-

cation of toilet room for both men and women. As a

result of the changes, the plans will be developed to

show one locker room at the south end of the Stadium,

one toilet facility for men and women on the west

side, and one toilet facility for men and women on

the east side, the deletion of the permanent seating

on the east side including related facilities in view

of estimated costs and the installation of the present

bleachers on the east side.



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

Committee recommend Board approval of the proposed

changes. The motion passed unanimously.

has donated to the University half interest in property

(9 acres and a house) in Reno valued at $121,750 and

half interest in 25 acres of pasture land valued at

$100,000 to be traded for the other half interest in

the above mentioned property. The amount of the gift

is to be dedicated as a memorial to her husband and

son. President Armstrong recommended acceptance of

the gift and approval of the necessary resolution

authorizing exercising of the option.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, that

the Committee recommend Board acceptance of the gift

and authorization of the appropriate resolution. The

motion passed unanimously.



(13) Mining Claims - Tonopah



President Armstrong recommended that the University

sell its interest in several mining claims in Tonopah

to the highest bidder. The Committee suggested that

bids be opened, and the results be reported to the

Committee.



(14) Pierre's College Inn - Las Vegas



President Armstrong reported that Pierre's College Inn

near the Nevada Southern Campus plans to apply for a

liquor license. A previous request had been opposed

by the University. He recommended a similar stand

this time.



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

Committee recommend that the Board go on record as op-

posing the request for a license. The motion passed

unanimously.



The meeting adjourned at 5:20 P.M.



Kenneth E. Young

Acting Secretary



Regarding item #2, Dormitory and Dining Hall, Las Vegas,

Preliminary Plans, President Armstrong recommended approval.



Motion was made by Mr. Davis to amend the motion of the

Building Committee by adding the following: However, every

attempt shall be made to limit such facilities to the female

sex. If it appears that there are insufficient applicants

for rooms by female students to insure complete occupancy

by female students then the first floor shall be reserved

for male students with proper security safeguards establish-

ed and maintained.



The Chairman called for discussion. Mr. Rogers stated that

all substantiating material submitted to Housing and Home

Finance Agency indicated a total of 120 individuals would

be living in the Dormitory, but that the ratio of men and

women would be a University concern. Mr. Hug agreed with

Mr. Davis, that as soon as possible, it is desirable to do

away with co-educational Dormitories.



The amendment was lost for want of a second.



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

with Mr. Davis abstaining, and all other Regents voting

"aye" that the preliminary plans, as approved by the Build-

ing Committee, and recommended to the Board, be approved.



Regarding church property at Las Vegas, item #4, Mr. Han-

cock, Manager of the State Planning Board, and Mr. James

Cashman, Jr., Vice Chairman of the State Planning Board,

met with the Regents to discuss the proposal of the Plan-

ning Board to condemn, or otherwise acquire, property at

Las Vegas owned by the Roman Catholic Church and the Church

of Jesus Christ, Latter Day Saints, since the church prop-

erty is surrounded by University property. He said that

there is land on the edge of the Campus which would be

adequate for the church groups, and proposed methods of

financing the exchange. He and Mr. Hancock agreed that,

unless the church groups are moved from the Campus, their

presence will be detrimental to the Master Plan.



Mr. Hancock expressed his opinion that the only way to

acquire the church property is by right of eminent domain.

The Planning Board however does not wish to bring such

action without the support of the University, at least to

the extent of knowing that the Board of Regents would not

oppose.



General discussion followed. It was brought out that, since

the church groups already own the land and one group has al-

ready started construction, condemnation action would react

unfavorably toward the University. The general opinion was

that the church groups would be unwilling to sell, trade or

otherwise remove themselves from the Campus, since they had

studied the matter carefully and concluded that this was

the very best location for their church activities.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Dr. White, to adopt the

Building Committee recommendation "that it go on record as

desiring that no action be taken to acquire the property."

The motion lost with Regents Anderson, Davis, Germain,

Jacobsen and Magee voting "no", Regents Hug and White vot-

ing "aye", and Regent Grant abstaining.



The Regents recessed at 11:00 A.M. for a tour of Military

Facilities and luncheon in the Dining Commons. The recessed

meeting was called to order by the Chairman at 1:20 P.M.



Dr. Anderson, who came into the meeting at this point,

asked that his vote on the above motion be recorded as "no".



Motion was made by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Hug, that

the Building Committee go on record as not desiring that

any action be taken to acquire the property, but that the

Board of Regents not oppose the Planning Board's efforts

to acquire the church property.



The Chairman asked for any discussion. Dr. Armstrong point-

ed out that the church groups might well ask why the Uni-

versity had approved the water connection previously, know-

ing that they planned immediate construction. Mr. Jacobsen

expressed the thought that the Planning Board has been fair

in helping them find land in the Campus area, and that sure-

ly their presence in the Campus will be a detriment to fu-

ture development.



It was then decided by informal agreement that an effort be

made to meet with representatives of the church groups to

see if a solution might be worked out. Mr. Humphrey was

asked to try to arrange such a meeting.



Motion was made by Dr. Anderson to table the motion until

an attempt is made to reach Mr. Von Tobel and Mr. Gibson,

representing the church groups, both of whom are in Carson

City attending the legislative session.



14. Fraternity Housemothers



Present for this item of business were Dean Basta, Mr. Coe

Swobe, and Mr. Louis Spitz of the Alumni Interfraternity

Council, Mr. Donald Heath and Mr. Mario Peraldo of the

Active Interfraternity Council, and Mr. Romide of Theta

Chi Fraternity. The meeting was in regard to a policy

adopted by the Board of Regents on October 6, 1962: "Each

fraternity shall be required to have a Housemother or Grad-

uate Assistant as a requirement for an approved University

residence, to become effective 1964-65."



Mr. Swobe presented the case for the Alumni Interfraternity

Council and previously had presented a petition signed by

members of the Alumni Council asking that the Regents re-

consider their action. Mr. Swobe discussed the responsi-

bilities of the University in loco parentis and expressed

his belief that it does not need to apply in this situation,

i. e., if the University does not exercise this right it

would not be legally liable. He stressed that the require-

ment would cripple fraternities because of the difficulty

to get good Housemothers and the expense involved. He

described methods of control by alumni which he felt are

adequate and which make it unnecessary to require House-

mothers or Graduate Assistants.



Dean Basta spoke of the "hand on the shoulder" of students

living in approved residences, that in loco parentis the

University has the responsibility to establish rules not

only for discipline but for the health and general living

standards of students.



Mr. Heath and Mr. Spitz spoke on behalf of the Interfrater-

nity request.



A letter just received from Deputy Attorney General Walsh

was discussed by President Armstrong. It stated: (1) The

University stands in loco parentis concerning the physical

and moral welfare and mental training of the students and

may enact rules and regulations forbidding all acts of

students which are detrimental to the good order and best

interests of the school or which affect the conduct and

discipline of the school. (2) The University can enact

rules of conduct to the same extent that parents can as

long as these rules are not palpably unreasonable or con-

trary to public policy. (3) I do not believe that the

University is legally responsibile, in a strict sense,

for safeguarding the health, morals, and welfare of stu-

dents. However, the University does have the authority

to regulate the conduct of the students in these areas.

(4) Every student on his admission impliedly promises to

submit to and be governed by all the necessary and proper

rules and regulations (of the University).



President Armstrong suggested that the matter be taken under

consideration by a committee or committees of the Board. It

was so agreed and Chairman Grant asked the Student Affairs

Committee, with the addition of Mr. Hug and Mr. Jacobsen,

to meet on the matter with power to act in this case. Since

Mr. Jacobsen would be unable to attend the meeting on the

evening set (January 29), Dr. Anderson was designated in

his place.



15. Building Committee Meeting of January 24, 1964 - continued



Dr. Young read item #6 on Acquired Property, Las Vegas.



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

unanimously to approve the recommendation of the Building

Committee regarding transfer of title to property acquired

in Las Vegas to the University.

On item #8, there was general discussion by the Regents,

right-of-way.

mously that the Regents approve the action of the Building

Committee.



The Hill-Smith property gift was discussed (item #12).



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

unanimously that the gift be accepted and that the follow-

ing resolution be adopted:



RESOLUTION #64-1



WHEREAS, Mrs. Wynne M. Hill-Smith has given to the Univer-

sity of Nevada a 1/2 interest in 9 acres of land and a

residence at 7675 Lakeside Drive, Reno (identified as par-

cel #1 on the attached description); and



WHEREAS, Mrs. Hill-Smith has also given to the University

of Nevada a 1/2 interest in approximately 25.705 acres of

pasture land (identified as parcels #2 and #3 on the

attached description); and



WHEREAS, Mr. and Mrs. Robert S. Lytle, owners of the re-

maining 1/2 interest in these properties, had given an

option to Mrs. Hill-Smith to exchange her 1/2 interest in

parcels #2 and #3 plus $1000 for their 1/2 interest in

parcel #1; and



WHEREAS, Mrs. Hill-Smith has, by way of gift, assigned the

option to the University of Nevada and given the Univer-

sity of Nevada the sum of $1000 in the event the University

should wish to exercise the option; and



WHEREAS, it appears to be clearly in the interest of the

University of Nevada that the option be exercised;



NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED:



That the Board of Regents does hereby authorize and approve

the exercise of the described option and authorize the

Chairman and Secretary of the Board of Regents to sign the

Deed of Conveyance to parcels #2 and #3 as described.



In regard to item #14, motion by Dr. White, seconded by Dr.

Germain, carried unanimously that the Regents reiterate

their stand on this same question, taken in meeting of the

Board on September 6, 1958, which requested that the license

not be granted.



16. Fund Raising Campaign, Nevada Southern



President Armstrong presented a proposal of the Nevada

Southern Foundation to adopt, as a project, a fund raising

program for the Drama building portion of the Fine Arts

Complex. Discussion followed in which Mr. Grant pointed

out that perhaps it would be more desirable not to earmark

the money for the Drama portion of the Complex, but rather

to raise money for the Fine Arts Complex. The money could

then be used for any portion of the Complex, and if funds

should come from other sources for any portion, the Founda-

tion could center its attention on another portion of the

Complex. Dr. Armstrong so recommended.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Dr. White, carried unani-

mously that the Board approve the fund raising project with

the understanding that Dr. Armstrong will discuss with the

Foundation the desire of the Regents that some of the funds

be applied to other portions of the Complex if other fund-

ing can be found for the Drama building.



17. Anelli Estate Property



Information had been received by the University that the

Executrix of the Anelli Estate would like to settle the

Estate, and for this reason, to sell the property, which

adjoins the University Campus on the north. Further in-

formation reached the Board that the Executrix would re-

quest re-zoning in the interest of the sale of the land,

and intended to ask the University for a roadway through

the Campus to the Anelli property. Since the information

was of uncertain nature, Mr. Hug, who is acquainted with

the accountant for the Estate, offered to secure definite

information and report back to the Board later in the

meeting.



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

unanimously that the Board authorize the Building Committee

to proceed with this project, and at the same time, author-

ize Mr. Hug to talk to representatives of the Anelli Estate,

working closely with President Armstrong.



18. Security Resolution



Mr. Rogers called attention to the fact that it has been

some time since the Regents adopted a "disclaimer" resolu-

tion and that it would be well now to do so. President

Armstrong recommended that the following resolution be

adopted:



RESOLUTION #64-2



RESOLVED, that the members of the Board of Regents as

follows, who are citizens of the United States, will not

require, nor will have, and can be effectively denied,

access to classified information in the possession of the

organization and do not occupy positions that would enable

them to affect adversely the organization's policy or prac-

tices in the performance of contracts for the Government.

20. Class A Actions



President Armstrong presented with his recommendation for

approval, four Class A Actions as follows, which have been

approved by the Academic Council, the University Council,

and the University Faculty:



I. Page 28 University Code - delete existing para-

graphs 1, 2 and 3, and substitute the following:



1. Transition from the logarithmic progression "Rank

and Salary Pattern" to the linear progression pat-

tern will occur during the 1964-65 and 1965-66

fiscal years. The objective during that two year

period will be to move all staff to the new pat-

tern without disturbing existing relative posi-

tions except for those persons receiving promo-

tions in rank. Except as noted above, each staff

member shall receive a salary increase in 1964-65

equal in percentage to 1/2 of the difference be-

tween the base of his salary step under the log-

arthmic pattern and the same relative position

step in the linear pattern. In 1965-66 the staff

member shall receive the same dollar increase as

in 1964-65, thus placing him on the new pattern.

A staff member whose 1965-66 increase does not

place him at a step shall be advanced to the

nearest step of the new pattern; however, no ad-

vancement beyond the top step of the range for

the applicable rank shall occur. Adjustments of

less than 3.15% (normal advancement for satis-

factory service under logarithmic pattern) of the

1963-64 base salary shall not be given for In-

structors or rank one.



2. Staff members promoted during 1964-65 or 1965-66

will receive a salary increase to the appropriate

step within the new rank, but in no case will the

increase be less than had the promotion in rank

not been received. Staff members judged to be

rendering unsatisfactory service may be held at

their 1963-64 salary. In such cases all guar-

antees of appeal and review contained in this

code shall be applicable. Each new professional

staff member shall be placed at the approximate

salary step within rank at the time of his in-

itial appointment.



3. Once the transition to the linear schedule is

accomplished all salaries will be at a specified

step rather than between the bounds of a step.

In making the transition there will be no auto-

matic changes in rank and all adjustments must

be within the budget limitations of the Univer-

sity. The maximum salary which may be paid for

Instructor or second rank shall be II, 9; and

for Associate Professor or third rank shall be

II, 11. Step IV, 11 for Professor or fourth

rank is a base and no maximum shall apply to

this step.



II. Paragraph 7, Section III, Chapter II, University Code

calling of meetings.



This portion of the Code presently reads as follows:



"... There shall be at least two regular meetings of

the University Faculty in each semester. Special

meetings of the University Faculty or a segment there-

of may be called by the President of the University or

by his designate. Either of these Officers is re-

quired to call a meeting as soon as it is feasible

upon written request signed by 15% of the members of

the group concerned. The Officer who calls the meet-

ing shall determine the order of business and in so

doing shall provide opportunity for introduction of

new business from the floor."



The proposed change is as follows:



"... Meetings of the University Faculty or a segment

thereof may be called by the President of the Uni-

versity or his designate. Either of the above Offi-

cers is required to call a meeting as soon as is

feasible upon written request signed by 15% of the

members of the group concerned or upon request of

the University Council. The President or his desig-

nate shall determine the order of business and in so

doing shall provide opportunity for introduction of

new business from the floor."



III. The following Code changes are designed to implement

the Committee's recommendations:



P. 19, para. 3. "An Instructor, with a Doctor's

degree ...". Change to read: "An Instructor, with

a Doctor's degree or equivalent, or who has demon-

strated his value to the University by superior serv-

ice, may expect to be considered for promotion at

any time and, in the case of those Instructors hold-

ing Doctor's degrees or equivalent must be consider-

ed by promotion after a period of not more than two

yers in this rank."



P. 19, para. 4: Add the capitalized portion as in-

dicated. "Assistant Professor (or Second) Rank --

Qualification of the previous rank plus: Doctor's

degree or equivalent in special professional OR

PREVIOUSLY DEMONSTRATED SUPERIOR SERVICE TO THE

UNIVERSITY; a record of effectiveness ...".



P. 20, para. 7: Add the capitalized portion as in-

cated. "Assistant, Field of Specialization: 'Nu-

tritionist', etc. (or Second Rank) -- Qualifications

of the previous rank plus : Doctor's degree or

equivalent in special professional field OR PREV-

IOUSLY DEMONSTRATED SUPERIOR SERVICE TO THE UNI-

VERSITY; evidence of continued ...".



IV. Master of Business Administration



The College of Business Administration wishes to offer

a graduate degree entitled "Master of Business Admin-

istration". The curriculum required for this degree

will be identical to that presently required for the

Master of Science degree in Business Administration.

The new degree is desired as the standard Master's

degree in Business Administration is the professional

degree, "Master of Business Administration".



Dr. Armstrong also distributed and discussed addi-

tional material in explanation of the new salary

schedule, pointing out that the new schedule takes

care of the middle areas where the University was

previously weak.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously that the above Class A actions be approved.



21. Church Property, Las Vegas - continued



Mr. James Gibson met with the Regents on behalf of the

Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints. Mr. Von

Tobel had not been located.



Mr. Grant called on Dr. Armstrong, who explained that the

State Planning Board has discussed with the Regents their

thinking that the present properties held by the two

churches in the area of the Las Vegas Campus are so locat-

ed that they will interfere with the future development

according to the Master Plan. The Planning Board therefore

is contemplating an attempt to acquire these properties

from the churches and allow them to locate at the perimeter

of the Campus. The Regents want to know if it will create

difficulties for the churches. The University can foresee

problems in the development of the University. On the other

hand, the Board is interested in having the churches near

the Campus, but not necessarily in the middle of the Campus.



Mr. Gibson explained that the local church has gone through

the necessary "red tape" with the church organization and

now has committed itself both as to the cost of the land

and to the extent of $80,000 for the building, which is now

underway. Before construction was started, President

Whipple of the Las Vegas Stake was offered a corner on

Flamingo Road by the Planning Board. However, the church

did not want to make the exchange. Mr. Gibson did not think

the church would move from the Campus location voluntarily,

and he thought the church program would be handicapped if

they were forced to move. He offered to talk to Mr. Von

Tobel about the matter and the Regents thanked him. Mr.

Gibson left the meeting.



22. History of the University



At the request of the Regents, study had been made of possi-

ble methods of treatment and President Armstrong presented

the results of that study, indicating three possible forms

- statistical, textual and pictorial, and recommended the

textual treatment, in which the treatment is much similar

to History textbooks, with a balance between broadscope

development and detail, written in a generally narrative

strain.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously that the textual treatment be approved, and that

the President proceed with the project, as presented to

the Regents as their meeting on December 7, 1963.



23. Transfers, Contingency Reserve Fund



President Armstrong reported the following transfers of less

than $2000 each:



#95 $250 to Secondary Education Department, College of

Education, to provide funds for alteration of Room

102, Thompson Education building.



#112 $1360 to Dean of Student Affairs, Reno, to provide

$703 for wages and $265 for operating and $392 for

equipment to enable this office to assume Teacher

Placement function as of January 1, 1964.



#118 $1212 to Business Manager to provide In-State Travel

funds to enable temporary employees of this office

to spend six weeks on the Nevada Southern Campus to

inventory furniture and equipment.



#125 $1000 to Publications and News Service, Reno, to

supplement the wages account.



#127/8 $910 to English Department, College of Arts and Sci-

ence, to provide additional help to replace time of

Chairman released for DRI activities.



President Armstrong recommended approval of the following

transfers of more than $2000 each:



#117 $4300 to School of Home Economics, College of Agri-

culture, to purchase equipment for Home Management

Residence.



#124 $2800 to Buildings and Grounds, Reno, general re-

pairs account to provide for remodeling of room

108, Clark Administration building.



#129 $66,877.77 from Various Professional & Technical

Salary Accounts to Contingency Reserve.



#130 $18,589.26 from Contingency Reserve to various

accounts. (List attached for #129 and #130.)



#131 $56,300 from Contingency Reserve to Building and

Grounds, Reno, Repairs, General.



#132 $3300 from Contingency Reserve to Executive Vice

President to implement enrollment projection study

for Reno Campus and Nevada Southern ($3100 to Wages

and $200 In-State Travel). These funds will be

used by Dr. Paiola, Dr. Wofford, Dr. de Young and

Mr. Byrd.



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

unanimously that the Contingency Reserve Fund transfers be

approved.



24. Salary and Code Committee



Mr. Hug discussed the meeting held on January 24, 1964,

minutes of which are as follows:



The meeting was held in the President's Office in Clark

dent Young and President Armstrong.



(1) General



Mr. Hug distributed copies of the draft of proposed

by-laws of the Board of Regents prepared by Cresap,

Mc Cormick & Paget, with suggested changes. Presi-

dent Armstrong was asked to review the background of

this report. The Committee agreed that it was impor-

tant to develop a new set of by-laws as soon as pos-

sible since the old by-laws are outdated and are not

being followed. The Committee further agreed to go

through the report to identify the major policy areas.



(2) Committees



The report recommended five committees: Educational

Policies, Administrative, Plant and Property, Develop-

ment, and Investment. The Regents in an earlier re-

view had suggested seven committees: Plant and Prop-

erty, Investment, Legislative, Honorary Degrees and

Awards, Development, Personnel and Student Affairs.



The Committee agreed on the following committees: Educa-

tional Policies, Administrative and Personnel, Plant and

Property, Development, Investment, Student Affairs, Hon-

orary Degrees and Awards, and Legislative.



(3) Delegation to Committee



The Committee agreed to change the wording of Article

II, Section 3, as follows:



"The Board of Regents shall be responsible for the

management and control of the University but may

delegate specific authority to its various committees

as hereinafter provided."



The Committee agreed to change the wording of Article

II, Section 4, as follows:



"The standing committees of the Board of Regents shall

consider such matters as may be referred to them by

the Board of Regents. Until approved by the Board of

Regents the action taken by any committee shall not

be binding on the Board of Regents or the University

of Nevada, unless the committee has been given speci-

fic power to act."



(4) Meeting of the Board



The Committee agreed to change the wording of Article

II, Section 5, as follows:



"The Board of Regents shall hold regular meetings

monthly and may hold special meetings at the discre-

tion of the Board or at the call of the Chairman, Vice-

Chairman, or any three members. However, if at any

meeting it is determined by a majority of the Board

that the next meeting is unnecessary, such meeting

shall not be held."



(5) Terms of Office



The Committee agreed to change the wording of Article

III, Section 4, as follows:



"Officers shall be elected at the organization meet-

ing of the Board in January of odd-numbered years,

and shall serve two-year terms.



a. No Officer may succeed himself in the same Office

but may be re-elected to the same position after

a lapse of two years."



(6) Identity of Officers



The Committee discussed a possible change in the word-

ing of Article II, Section 1, but postponed action.

Further study is to be made of the question as to

whether or not the Secretary should be an Officer of

the Board.



/s/ Kenneth Young

Acting Secretary



Mr. Hug asked the members of the Committee to meet in Reno

on Friday, March 27, 1964, at 10:00 A.M. to consider mat-

ters pertaining to by-laws and at 1:00 P.M. to take up sal-

ary matters.



25. Building Committee



The Regents' Building Committee scheduled a meeting for 3:00

P.M. on Friday, March 27, in the President's Office.



26. Anelli Property - continued



Mr. Hug reported that he has now checked with representa-

tives of the Anelli Estate and the land is definitely in

the hands of Lucini and Associates. They are going to

proceed with the sale of the property so Mr. Hug withdrew

his objection and proposed that the University let the

staff of the Regional Planning Commission know that it is

opposed to re-zoning the area and granting right-of-way

for a road through University property.



Mr. Jacobsen withdrew his original motion and moved that

the Regents go on record as opposing re-zoning the area

north of the Campus and as not being willing to grant a

right-of-way for a road through the Campus, and that this

information be transmitted to the Regional Planning Com-

mission. Dr. White seconded the motion, and it carried

unanimously.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried unani-

mously that the Administration be empowered to negotiate

for the purchase of the land between the present northern

boundary of the Campus and Oddie Boulevard.



27. Water Line, Las Vegas Campus - continued



It was agreed that this item be held in abeyance until some

decision is made in regard to the church property. Later,

by telephone, it was agreed to grant the request for water

line at the Las Vegas Campus.



28. Church Property, Las Vegas - continued



Mr. Grant asked that the record show that he is against

condemnation.



Motion was made by Dr. Anderson to recall the previous mo-

tion on his matter for tabling and made a new motion,

seconded by Mr. Germain, that the Board of Regents go on

record as desiring that no condemnation action be taken

to acquire the property. Carried unanimously.



The Regents adjourned the regular session at 5:05 P.M.



The next meeting of the Board was set for Saturday, March 28,

1964 in Fallon.
