fact that gifts anticipated to cover expenditures were

not forthcoming.





Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the fund transfers be

approved.



5. Master Plan



Mr. Kirkpatrick, acting for Mr. Rodgers, who was unable to

come to Reno, displayed models for both Campuses - one

showing the Reno Campus with an enrollment of 7000 FTE

students, also one showing the Las Vegas Campus with an

enrollment of 1700 FTE students. These models were in ac-

cord with plans previously approved by the Board of Regents.

They were here discussed and certain questions asked by the

Regents were discussed by Mr. Kirkpatrick, Mr. Merrill and/

or Mr. Hancock.



In regard to land acquisition in Las Vegas and the possi-

bility of long range purchase or long term options, Mr.

Hancock pointed out the difficulty of getting an option.



Mr. Hancock reported that, in regard to the purchase of the

Catholic Church property, check for the option was sent to

the Church Officials and cashed, so that the option has been

secured.



Final plans and specifications for the proposed expansion

of facilities for the Radiological Laboratory in Las Vegas

were received by the State Planning Board and the Univer-

sity of Nevada, and discussed by the Regents. It was point-

ed out by Mr. Hancock that Mr. Mc Bride of the Public Health

Division, Department of Health, Education and Welfare, ex-

pects the University to seek funds from the Legislature for

the project. Mr. Rogers and Mr. Humphrey understood that

Mr. Mc Bride was expecting the State to issue revenue bonds

and had been working directly with Governor Sawyer on the

problem.



Discussion followed as to the obligation for securing funds

- whether it should be a State or a University project, and

in general how financing should be handled. The possibil-

ity of revenue bonds was discussed and other means of fin-

ancing. Mr. Hancock believed that the State does not have

the bonding leeway to handle the financing. Proposal was

made that the University merely inform the Governor of the

concurrence with the plan to increase facilities. Proposal

was also made that the State Planning Board help in what-

ever arrangement is agreed upon. It was the consensus of

the Board that the request for these funds must not jeopard-

ize the regular building program of the University. Presi-

dent Armstrong suggested that the Building Committee proceed

to investigate and study the matter further and take what-

ever action is then deemed necessary, and that report be

made to the Regents at their next meeting.



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

unanimously that the above procedure be approved.



Mr. Grant called on Mr. Sharp and his group for any comments

or questions. Mr. Sharp said their concern was first the

timing of the construction of the new Stadium and what in-

terim arrangements were to be made, and secondly, that ad-

ditional athletic facilities be undertaken as soon as pos-

sible. Dr. Armstrong offered, as the best method of keeping

the Alumni informed, to have them meet with the Building

Committee when these matters are discussed.



6. Minutes of Building Committee



Dr. Anderson read the minutes of the meeting of January 3,

1963, as follows:



Building Committee Board of Regents

January 3, 1963



Present: Dr. Anderson (Chairman), Mr. Hug, Mrs. Magee of

the Board of Regents; Vice President Young, Business Manager

Humphrey, University Engineer Rogers; Planning Coordinator

Hollett; Mr. Mc Daniel, Mr. Seldon, Mr. Stewart.



1. Fine Arts Facility, Las Vegas



Mr. James Brooks Mc Daniel, architect, presented pre-

liminary plans for the first phase of a Fine Arts Com-

plex on the Nevada Southern Campus. The first phase

consists of a Little Theatre and supporting areas. A

Rehearsal Hall (which also can be used for Theatre in

the Round) would be included as an additive alternate.

An Art facility, a Music facility, and general class-

rooms would be added later.



There was some discussion of the desirability of build-

ing the Little Theatre first. It was pointed out that

this matter had been reviewed carefully by the faculty

concerned and the Campus Development Committee at Nevada

Southern, as well as the University Engineer's Office.

It had been agreed that the Little Theatre is a special-

ized laboratory facility basic to an instructionl pro-

gram in Speech and Drama and important to Music. Also,

it can be used for large classes, speakers, etc.



Action: Dr. Anderson, Mr. Hug and Mrs. Magee concurred

in accepting the preliminary plans and recommending

their acceptance by the Board of Regents.



2. Site Development Study for Dormitory Complex, Reno



Mr. T. E. Seldon and Mr. A. J. Stewart, architects, pre-

sented a proposed plan for the site development of the

Roman Catholic Church cemetery property as a Dormitory

Complex for the Reno Campus. They recommended as a

first phase the construction of two four-story, 300-

student residence halls with a section for men and a

section for women in each building. These could be

increased to eight stories at a later date. Room

also was provided for a new Dining Commons and, if

necessary, another residence hall. There was some

discussion of the funding of this HHFA-financed proj-

ect from the revenues of residence halls and dining

facilities.



The presentation was for information purposes only, and

no official action was required. However, Dr. Anderson,

Mr. Hug, and Mrs. Magee concurred in their approval of

the general approach suggested by the architects.



3. Pull-Up Lane as Residence Hall, Reno



Mr. Rogers presented plans to provide a pull-up lane to

serve Manzanita Hall. This would make it possible for

cars to stop near the front of the residence hall so

that male students can pick up and drop off dates. Such

an area is necessary since the City has eliminated park-

ing on the east side of North Virginia. No formal ac-

tion was required by the Regents but they concurred with

the plan.



4. Re-Zoning Request, Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers reported that the owner of property at the

corner of Maryland Boulevard and Flamingo Road, near

the Nevada Southern Campus, has requested that his

property be zoned C-1. Mr. Rogers studied this request

and does not believe that it would create any problem

for the University. He plans to discuss this matter

with Mr. Grant. No formal action was required by the

Regents.



5. Safety Committee



A meeting of a Safety Committee which was appointed by

the Washoe County School Board to study various prob-

lems as they relate to traffic and school children will

be held on January 16 at which time Mr. Rogers has been

requested to discuss the University of Nevada plans as

they relate to the traffic and safety in the area of

the Reno Campus. The Regents concurred that he should

comply with the request.



6. Traffic Control Near Campus



The Regents discussed the problem of traffic control

on streets adjacent to the University, particularly

North Virginia. The Administration was asked to write

a letter to the State Highway Department, expressing

the University's interest in, and position on, this

matter, with particular reference to the Master Plan

of Roads and Streets in the Truckee Meadows.



7. Home Management Residence, Reno



Mr. Rogers presented the thinking of the Home Economics

staff concerning the placement of the Home Management

residence. It has been recommended that this facility

be placed on the second floor of the north wing of the

Sarah Hamilton Fleischmann School of Home Economics.

However, it would be separated from the main part of

the building until another Laboratory is added at some

future date. The State Planning Board staff objects to

this placement, and neither the architect nor the Uni-

versity Engineer's Office is particularly satisfied

with it. The Regents concurred in following the re-

quest of the Facility Building Committee that the house

be placed on the second floor on the north end of the

north wing.



Kenneth Young

Acting Secretary



Dr. Anderson discussed the action of the Committee in recom-

mending approval of the plans for the Fine Arts building in

Las Vegas. Mr. Rogers displayed the plans and discussed

them.



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

unanimously that the preliminary plans be approved as

recommended by the Building Committee.



President Armstrong reported that, in accord with the re-

quest of the Regents, parking has been eliminated on the

east side of North Virginia Street. Dr. Anderson called

attention to the minutes of the Building Committee regard-

ing a pull-up lane to serve Manzanita Hall, which is neces-

sary now that parking has been eliminated.



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

unanimously that the pull-up lane be approved for Manzanita

Hall.



The Board recessed at 12:10 Noon for luncheon in the Dining Com-

mons.



The recessed meeting was called to order by Chairman Grant at

1:30 P.M.

8. Questa Property



Mr. Humphrey discussed the meeting of the Investment Com-

mittee as follows:



UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA

INVESTMENT COMMITTEE OF THE BOARD OF REGENTS

Minutes of Meeting December 31, 1962



The Committee met at 12:15 P.M. at the Holiday Hotel. Pres-

ent were: Board members Dr. Louis E. Lombardi and Procter

R. Hug, Jr.; Public member Julius Bergen; Ex-Officio member

Neil D. Humphrey and, representing the President, Executive

Vice President Kenneth E. Young. Absent from the City was

Public member E. L. Cord. Representing the First National

Bank of Nevada was R. O. Kwapil, Vice President and Senior

Trust Officer.



The Committee met to consider the sale of the E. J. Questa

residence at 142 Greenridge Drive, Reno. Chief Deputy

Attorney General John A. Porter had advised that since the

property is held as an asset of the endowment fund, the

Investment Committee should act in behalf of the Board of

Regents. Mr. Kwapil reported that Dr. Donald F. Guisto

had offered $50,000 for the property. Terms of the sale

are: $18,000 upon execution of contract and the balance

of $32,000 to be secured by a first deed of trust bearing

interest at the rate of 6.5% payable at $261.50 or more per

month. Mr. Kwapil recommended the sale be approved.



Mr. Humphrey reviewed the legal complications encountered

in the Spring of 1962 in attempting to sell the property in

response to offers from Hamilton Mc Caughey and Dr. Adolf

Rosenauer. Mr. Humphrey recommended the sale be approved

and stated that he had discussed the matter with President

Armstrong who also recommended approval.



Mr. Hug moved, seconded by Mr. Bergen, that the Investment

Committee approve the sale of the residence at 142 Green-

ridge Drive to Dr. Donald Guisto for $50,000, subject to

terms of sale, and less real estate commission and closing

costs. Motion approved unanimously.



Meeting adjourned at 1:30 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



Neil D. Humphrey

Acting Secretary



Mr. Humphrey had polled the present and previous members of

the Board on the matter of selling the Questa property.

The meeting was held upon the advice of the Attorney Gen-

eral's Office that the transaction should be by the Invest-

ment Committee, since the property was part of the Univer-

sity endowment fund portfolio. The sale is now completed

and the proceeds will go into a scholarship fund, as speci-

fied in the Will of Mr. Questa.



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

mously that the report be accepted and the action of the

Investment Committee be approved.

In addition to the above, Mr. Rogers reported that the Life

Science Wing is near completion, and the Atmospherium-

Planetarium is progressing satisfactorily.



By means of charts, Mr. Rogers showed the land comprising

the Campus at Las Vegas and land adjoining the Campus which

might be considered for purchase or trade. Mr. Germain

discussed the possibility of reversing the Governor's action

in dropping the $200,000 for land purchase, of securing pri-

vate gifts, and of the possibility of someone purchasing the

land and permitting the University to buy from him, parcel

at a time. He then suggested turning the matter over to

the Building Committee. President Armstrong so recommended

and, there being no objection, the Chairman so ordered.



Mr. Rogers explained that design of the Social Science

building in Las Vegas must be accomplished by Spring of

1965 so that construction would start then. The presump-

tion now is that the increase in students will be more

rapid than previously thought and consequently the Planning

Board has been asked to request $52,000 from the Legislature

to permit the University to have plans ready for the next

session of the Legislature. The Planning Board did not so

recommend and so the University should attempt to have it

included in the appropriation bill.



12. Advanced Degrees



President Armstrong presented his recommendation that the

Regents authorize certain advanced degrees as approved by

the Academic Committee. Some of the programs depend upon

the availability of funds, so that no effective date has

been set, and the Administration will present working bud-

gets to the Regents with definite proposals when the Leg-

islature has acted upon the University budget.



a) Ph. D. Program in English with specialization in limited

areas in Language, Rhetoric, Criticism and Literature.

b) Ph. D. Program in Psychology

c) M. A. Degree in School Psychology

d) M. A. Degree in French, German or Spanish



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

unanimously that the above advanced degrees be authorized

dependent upon availability of adequate funds.



13. Business Office Report



In accord with action at the last meeting of the Board, Mr.

Humphrey submitted to Dr. Armstrong recommendations con-

cerning each of the detailed suggestions in the report of

Dr. Clarence Scheps, with estimate of amount of time and

money to implement the recommendations. Dr. Armstrong

distributed copies to the Regents for study and action at

the next meeting of the Board.



14. Class "A" Actions



President Armstrong discussed the recommendation that the

following Class "A" Actions be approved. These actions had

been approved by the Academic Committee and by mail vote of

the University Faculty, as follows:



a) Regarding Admissions, Academic Standards and Related

Matters



Dr. Armstrong said, is an upgrading of student stand-

ards. The question was raised by the Regents as to

whether or not the standards would be fair to Junior

and Senior students presently in the high schools.

There were also some discussions as to the wording

"accredited high school" and "approved high school".

President Armstrong suggested that, between now and

the next meeting, he send the Regents supplementary

material for study. There being no objections, this

was the order of the Chair.



b) Regarding University Council Membership



In order to make that portion of the University Code

which describes the membership of the University

Council (Chapter II, Section III, Paragraph 3.1) more

precise, the University Council has approved and is

herewith submitting as a Class A action to the Univer-

sity faculty the following statement to be appended to

the Code:



Full-time members of the University faculty, and

only they, are eligible to vote in the election of

Council representatives or to serve on the Council.



The number of Council seats to which any College

or Division is entitled is based upon the number

of its full-time faculty members. However, a full-

time faculty position in any College or Division

that is filled by two or more part-time employees

is counted as a full-time position in the determin-

ation of the entitled number of Council seats, even

though the said part-time employees are not eligible

to vote in the election of Council representatives

or to serve on the Council.



A full-time University faculty member whose assign-

ment includes duties in more than one College or

Division is counted as a member of that College or

Division in which his major responsibility lies;

in case there is question as to which College or

Division this is, the President of the University

shall decide.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mrs. Magee, that

the Class "A" Action regarding University Council Mem-

bership be approved, carried with Mr. Germain voting

"no" and all other Regents voting "aye".



Mr. Germain explained that his negative vote was due

to his objection to the provision for "full-time mem-

bers of the University faculty".



c) Regarding the Adjunct Faculty



This proposal, which has been reviewed and approved by

the Academic Committee, the Graduate Committee, and

the University Council, would give Adjunct Academic

Faculty status to individuals highly qualified in a

field of academic knowledge, whose salaries are not

paid by the University. Examples are professional

research personnel of the Agricultural Research Service

(Federal employees) working in cooperation with the

College of Agriculture.



Any individual who is highly qualified in a field of

academic knowledge and whose salary is not paid by the

University of Nevada, may receive the title of Adjunct

Instructor, Adjunct Assistant Professor, Adjunct As-

sociate Professor, or Adjunct Professor, provided that

all the following conditions are met:



1. It must be clearly demonstrable that his serv-

ices will be of value to the academic program

of the University comparable to those of regu-

lar members of the Academic Faculty.



2. His appointment shall go through regular chan-

nels as provided by the University Code; i. e.,

the recommendation shall be intitiated by the

Department concerned, and then go for approval

to the Dean of the College, the President, and

the Board of Regents.



3. He must demonstrate that he fulfills the appro-

priate requirements for the corresponding aca-

demic position (i. e., without the title "Ad-

junct") as specified by the Department concerned

and by the University Code, and as required by

the Personal Data Form. He shall be a non-vot-

ing Adjunct member of the Academic Faculty.



4. Such Adjunct member of the Academic Faculty may,

with the approval of the Graduate Dean and the

Graduate Committee, be appointed Co-Chairman of

Graduate Degree Thesis Committees, and shall

thereby have a vote on the Graduate Thesis

Committee.



It is understood that appointments as Adjunct Academic

Faculty member will be considered on an individual

basis, and that the foregoing does not constitute

blanket approval of everyone in a general category.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Lombardi,

carried unanimously that the Class "A" Action regard-

ing the Adjunct Faculty be approved.



15. Clark County Educational Organizations



As requested at the last meeting President Armstrong had

prepared a report for the Regents in answer to statements

submitted by the Clark County Teachers Organizations regard-

ing residency requirements, tuition and fees, degrees at

Nevada Southern, graduate course offerings, requirement of

matriculating toward a Master's degree, National Defense

Act programs for Nevada Southern, residency requirements

as they apply to evening and Saturday students, transfer

of credits earned in Government sponsored workshops, grad-

uate record examination, counseling service, plan for se-

curing Master's degree, size of graduate examining commit-

tee, and difficulty in obtaining transcripts. Dr. Young

spoke of meetings with school officials, and indicated that

the comments of the University on these subjects have now

been taken back to the teachers in the organizations.



16. Historical and Natural Sites, Nevada



In response to invitation to form a joint committee with

the University, the Nevada State Museum Board appointed

Thomas C. Wilson and Clayton D. Phillips as representatives.

Mr. Cronkhite, Acting Director of the State Park System,

wrote that the proposal will be presented to the State Park

Commission at their next meeting.



17. Bank Charges, HHFA Revenue Certificates



President Armstrong presented the agreement with the First

National Bank of Nevada in connection with the handling of

Corporate Trust No. 30, University of Nevada Housing Revenue

Certificates of 1959. The agreement calls for a "Bond Clos-

ing and Corporate Set-Up Fee" of $1000 and an annual fee of

$500. The agreement had been submitted to the Office of the

Attorney General and Mr. Finnegan advised that it had been

approved. Mr. Humphrey requested approval and President

Armstrong so recommended.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the agreement, including

the fee, be approved.



18. Transfer of Budgeted Funds



President Armstrong recommended approval of the following

transfer:



From Various Departments and Reserve for Contingencies, to

Reserve for Contingencies and Various Departments, result-

ing in a net transfer to the Reserve of $110,221.35; to

transfer unexpended salary funds from Departmental salary

accounts to Reserve for Contingencies and to transfer funds

from Reserve for Contingencies to those salary accounts in

need of funds.



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

unanimously that the fund transfer be approved.



19. Mary B. Weeks Living Trust Agreement



Mr. Humphrey submitted the following report:



"The irrevocable trust agreement between the University and

Mrs. Mary B. Weeks provides that all 'income' from the in-

vestment in Colonial Fund, Inc. shall be paid to Mrs. Weeks.

The agreement also provides that all dividends paid in cash

and capital gains distribution shall be 'income'.



"During calendar 1962 the capital gains distribution of 25

cents per share on the 8298 shares held was erroneously re-

ceived by the University as 216 shares of stock, rather

than $2,074.50 cash. This error was discovered and the 216

shares of stock sold with a resulting profit of $242.01.

Mrs. Weeks received therefore, $2,316.51, rather than the

$2,074.50 she would have received if the error had not been

made.



"Dempsey-Tegler handled the sale of the 216 shares and has

now asked for a Resolution authorizing sale of the 216

shares."



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

unanimously that the following Resolution be adopted:



RESOLUTION #63-1



RESOLVED, that the sale of 216 shares of Colonial Fund, Inc.

in conformity with the provisions of the irrevocable trust

agreement between the University of Nevada and Mrs. Mary B.

Weeks be approved.



20. Engineering Building, Blowers



Mr. Rogers discussed an indemnity agreement with Duriron

Company to furnish two blowers for the Engineering build-

ing, which agreement had been submitted by the Planning

Board for signature on behalf of the University. The

blowers will be used for purpose other than that advertised

by the company and for this reason the firm will not deliv-

er the blowers to the contractors. Mr. Finnegan expressed

the opinion that he is not in favor of the agreement, and

thinks the firm is breaching the contract. Mr. Germain

questioned whether the University of Nevada is involved,

since the State Planning Board entered into contract with

the company. It was agreed by consensus that the Building

Committee be authorized to handle the situation, once the

search has been made by the Office of the Attorney General,

working with the attorneys on the Board.



21. Committee Structure



Chairman Grant asked the new members of the Board to review

carefully the report prepared by Cresap, Mc Cormick and

Paget, "University of Nevada, A Study of the Organization

and Procedure of the Board of Regents", especially as to

committee structure.



22. Regents Elwell and Broadbent, and Chief Deputy Attorney

General Porter



The Chairman suggested that letters of appreciation be sent

to these individuals expressing appreciation for their good

services. It was so agreed.



23. Tuition and Fee Waivers



Dr. Lombardi referred to action by the Board on April 28,

1962 allocating 70 tuition waivers for students who con-

tribute to University programs in activities, and said

that he had interpreted the action as covering 70% of the

waivers, instead of 70 waivers.



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

unanimously that the statement "70 waivers" be changed to

"70% of the waivers" so that the statement to be used as

a permanent policy reads, "70% of the waivers reserved for

students who contribute to University programs in activi-

ties".



Dr. Lombardi expressed his thought that similar waiver of

fees for in-state students would serve a good purpose.

President Armstrong said that the staff is working on such

a proposal and it is now in the hands of the Faculty

Scholarship Committee.



24. Next Meeting



The next meeting of the Board of Regents was set for Satur-

day, February 23, 1963, in Reno.



The Board ajourned at 4:00 P.M. and went into Executive Session

to discuss personnel matters.
