On motion of Mr. Ross, the Board authorized the change in the
location of the Western Pacific spur track on the Campus in ac-
cord with the President's recommendation, provided the work can
be done as a CWA project without cost to the University.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Dr. Olmsted          Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

On motion of Mr. Williams, the Board authorized the President to
grant William R. Blackler an additional year's leave when and if
Professor Blackler makes such request any time prior to May 1,
1934.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Dr. Olmsted          Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

On motion of Dr. Olmsted, the President's recommendation that (a)
The resignation of Mrs. Cruz Venstrom as Assistant in Home Eco-
nomics for this semester be accepted and (b) Mrs. Louise Springer
a former staff member of the Home Economics Department, be elect-
ed in her stead for this semester at a stipend of $200 for the
semester, to be paid in 5 consecutive monthly payments of $40,
beginning with the payment for January, were approved by the fol-
lowing vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Dr. Olmsted          Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

On motion of Mr. Williams, the Secretary of the Board was in-
structed to write to Cashier C. A. Sewell of the First National
Bank of Elko that his request of January 16, 1934 that his Bank
should be made a depository of State University funds was denied.
The Secretary was instructed to give as the reason for the delay
in answer, the fact that the Regents did not meet until the 27th
and to advise Mr. Sewell that the request could not be granted
because such grant to any bank outside the Reno district would
establish a precedent that could not be maintained, as all State
Funds are on deposit in the State Treasury and there would remain
for such distribution only Federal Funds which, shared out among
the State Banks would be so small in amount as to make an im-
practical situation.  Federal Funds are paid semiannually gen-
erally and recently only quarterly.  The monthly diminuition
during the 6- and 3-month periods is fairly rapid.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Dr. Olmsted          Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

On motion of Mr. Ross, the Regents approved (a) the request of
the University Comptroller that he comply with the instructions
of the Comptroller General of the United States in the modified
form of carrying all Federal Funds in 1 separate account instead
of in 3 separate accounts, as suggested by the Comptroller Gen-
eral and (b) the new check forms submitted by Mr. Gorman, these
being necessary for the conduct of business with this separation
of Federal from other University Funds.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Dr. Olmsted          Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

On motion of Dr. Olmsted, the President's recommendations con-
cerning the persons to deliver the Commencement and Baccalaureate
addresses and matters germane thereto were unanimously approved.

On motion of Mr. Ross permission was granted to the City Engineer
to lay sewer mains on the University Campus provided that such
mains are carried back of the Training Quarters and between the
Orr Ditch and the drain ditch in the hollow to the east of the
Engineering and Extension buildings, provided that the 3 manholes
be either sunk below the surface of the ground and covered or be
made no higher than flush with the ground surface.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Dr. Olmsted          Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

On motion of Mr. Williams the following Resolution was adopted:

    RESOLVED, that effective from the opening of the University
    year beginning August 27, 1934 the Board of Regents will
    grant degrees to those students only of the University who,
    in addition to having been recommended for graduation by the
    University faculty, have also met all of their financial
    obligations to the University, including payment of the fee
    or fees for diplomas and certificates to be issued to the
    respective students.  This limitation shall not apply to the
    repayment of a loan whose initial payment date is later than
    the date of the meeting of the Regents at which meeting the
    student's degree is to be granted.

Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Dr. Olmsted          Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

On motion of Dr. Olmsted, the request of Neil Mc Vicar, Clerk of
the Mason Valley High School Board, that the Regents should per-
mit him to select certain laboratory desks now in the old Chem-
istry building and give them to his School without cost, was
granted.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Dr. Olmsted          Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye


The next regular meeting of the Board of Regents is the Commence-
ment meeting, May 12, 1934.
