The following resolutions were drawn up by Regent Henderson and
adopted by all the members of the Board of Regents:

    WHEREAS, there has frequently come before the Board of
    Regents, for consideration, the right of the President of
    the University of Nevada, and the members of the faculty
    thereof, to enter into matters outside of, and in nowise
    connected with the University; and

    WHEREAS, it appears to the Board of Regents that no definite
    action was ever taken by the Board, relative to the President
    and members of the faculty taking part in matters not con-
    nected with the University; and

    WHEREAS, the Board of Regents of the University regard it
    as of fundamental importance that the men connected with the
    University should exercise the rights and privileges which
    belong to them as citizens of the municipality, and of the
    State, and of the Nation;

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the President, the mem-
    bers of the faculty, and all others connected with the Uni-
    versity are, and have been at all times (in so far as the
    present Board is aware) free to take part in all matters
    pertaining to the public welfare, as good citizens; and as
    such good citizens, to exercise the rights and privileges
    secured them under the law, with full freedom of thought
    and action.

    AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that when those connected with
    the University take part in any matters pertaining to the
    public welfare of the Nation, or the State, or any locality
    in the State, their action is as an individual member of the
    community, unless such action is taken under the direction
    of the Board of Regents; but in all such matters, whether
    done for the public welfare of the Nation, or of the State,
    or of any locality within the State, the Regents regard it
    as of fundamental importance that the good name and standing
    of the University should be considered, and that no such
    action should be taken by the President, or any member of
    the faculty, or any person connected therewith, that would
    reflect upon the University, without first consulting the
    Board of Regents; and that no action should be taken by those
    connected with the University, which would tend to create in
    the public mind the opinion that they were acting in any
    other capacity than that of an individual.

    AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that all matters affecting the
    University, in any way, must be first referred to the Presi-
    dent and by him to the Board of Regents, for final action.

No further business appearing, the Board adjourned to meet at
the call of the Chairman.

                             H. E. Reid
