A.M.



1. Approval of Minutes of Previous Meeting



Upon motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, the

minutes of the meeting of January 12-13, 1968 were approved

as recommended.



2. Purchases of Educational TV Equipment



Mr. Pine reported that bids have been opened for two pur-

chases of equipment involved in the TV system linking the

University of Nevada and Nevada Southern University. He

noted that the following had been received on Bid. No. 569

for microwave equipment:



Lenkurt Electric Company $53,360

Philco-Ford Corporation 87,322



Mr. Pine noted that Lenkurt Electric had, in submitting

their bid, specified a different payment schedule but has

since agreed to the University's practices. He recommended

the bid of Lenkurt Electric be accepted. His recommendation

was endorsed by the Business Manager at NSU, by both Chan-

cellors and by Acting President Humphrey.



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

by roll call vote that the above recommendation be approved

and the contract awarded to Lenkurt Electric Company.



Mr. Pine reported that the following had been received on

Bid No. 570 for equipment for the television studio:





Base Bid 4 1/2" I. O. Cameras



Ampex Corporation $229,905.00

Radio Corporation of America 299,994.00

Sarkes-Tarzian, Inc. 312,496.00

ITT Service (Federal Electric Corp.) 340,892.00

Philco-Ford 341,771.00



Alternate Bid 3" I. O. Camera



Sarkes-Tarzian, Inc. $259,870.00

Philco-Ford 312,138.00

ITT Service (Federal Electric Corp.) 312,573.00

Stage Sound and Equipment 329,327.40



Mr. Pine noted that Sarkes-Tarzian, the third bidder, had

raised objections to the award of the bid to Ampex Corpor-

ation, stating that in their opinion the Ampex Corporation's

bid did not meet specifications in two major areas. These

were the "Dynair" video switches and the film camera. Mr.

Pine stated that this matter was referred to Mr. Donald

Bowdish, consultant representing the firm of Jack A. Ricket

Associates, Inc. and Mr. Harold Judge of E. G. & G., Inc.

These two consultants recommended acceptance of the bid of

Ampex Corporation, as did Mr. Pine, Mr. Westfall and both

Chancellors. Acting President Humphrey recommended the

contract be awarded to Ampex Corporation in the amount of

$229,905.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved

and the contract be awarded to Ampex Corporation.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

unanimously that the Regents extend thanks to the con-

sultants for their assistance in reviewing the bids for

this equipment.



3. Administrative Reorganization



Acting President Humphrey reviewed the work of the Committee

on Administrative Reorganization, noting that they had now

reached the point where they were prepared to make recom-

mendations concerning the central administrative structure

of the University. Their report, included with the agenda

material, was discussed with Mr. Humphrey highlighting the

recommendations.



(The majority report and its attachments filed with perma-

nent minutes.)



The recommendations of the Committee were as follows:



The Ad Hoc Committee is of the opinion that the University

of Nevada System concept should be recognized. The state-

ment in Section 4.1 of the University Code that "... each

Campus is a full-fledged University in its own right ..."

should be implemented, and each Campus should be allowed

to develop to its full potential. At the same time, the

Ad Hoc Committee has concluded that, at least at this

time, the System concept will serve the two Universities

and the State better than would a completely separate

organizational structure which would perhaps invite much

greater extramural coordination and control than is now

the case.



The Committee, therefore, recommends Plan 2 but wishes to

stress that redefinition of roles toward greater autonomy

for each Campus is essential to the recommendation. In

order to implement this recommendation, the Ad Hoc Commit-

tee respectfully suggests that the following changes be

made by the Board of Regents.



1. System or central executive



A. Change title from President to Chancellor.



B. Provide that the Chancellor report to and be ap-

pointed by the Board of Regents and be the Chief

Executive Officer of the University of Nevada

System. The wisdom of full faculty participation

in the nomination procedure for the Chancellor

(noting title change) in accord with the Nevada

Revised Statutes is affirmed.



C. Define the responsibilities of this position

clearly. Included in the list should be:



(1) Coordination of the activities, policies

and programs of the two Universities wher-

ever these overlap, conflict or inefficiently

compete;



(2) Coordination of system Financial support and

planning;



(3) Board of Regents secretariat function; and



(4) Coordination of legislative relationships.



D. In all matters where there is disagreement between

the Chancellor and a President, the Chancellor

shall forward both his recommendations and that

of the President to the Board of Regents.



2. Campus executive



A. Change title from Chancellor to President.



B. Provide that appointment of the Presidents be the

responsibility of the Board of Regents. In fill-

ing a vacancy the Chancellor should be expected to

play an important role. The wisdom of full faculty

participation in the nomination procedure for the

President (noting title change) in accord with the

Nevada Revised Statutes is affirmed.



C. Continue to define the responsibility of these

positions by increasing the autonomy of the two

Universities.



D. Insure that even though the Presidents report to

the Chancellor, they have access to the Board in

regular meetings. All officers must, of course,

abide by the Board's decision once it has been

reached.



E. The President normally will be the principal

spokesman on Board approved matters affecting

his University, as distinct from those with

Systemwide implications.



3. Problems concerning University reorganization and the

Desert Research Institute were presented to the Com-

mittee January 19, leaving insufficient time to develop

a Committee recommendation. A recommendation of the

Vice President and Director of DRI and his senior staff

is now in the process of preparation.



The Committee believes that serious and detailed con-

sideration should be given to insuring an appropriate

role and administrative structure for the DRI. We

respectfully request that we be allowed additional

time for consideration of DRI staff recommendation

and that we report to the Board on this at a later

date. Unless recommended by the Committee at a later

date, we suggest that no basic change occur in DRI

administrative structure except to retitle Professor

Mordy's position to Vice Chancellor and Director of

Desert Research Institute to accommodate the change

in titles recommended above.



4. Significant steps toward greater Campus administrative

autonomy have been taken recently, including (a) re-

organization of the office of the Vice President-

Finance whereby all line functions were transferred to

the Chief Campus Executive; and (b) transfer of the

Director of Development from the Chief System Executive

to the Chief Campus Executive. It is understood that

additional steps are under consideration, e. g. move-

ment of the academic Personnel Office to the Chief

Campus Executive. These changes are consistent with

the recommendations made by this Committee.



5. Presently the Dean of General University Extension

reports to the Chief System Executive and certain

responsibilities of this Division are performed on

and near both Universities. It is understood that

consideration is now being given to a possible re-

organization which might recognize better each Uni-

versity's role in this program, especially in the

Off-Campus and Evening Divisions. If the Board con-

curs in the Ad Hoc Committee's request to remain

organized for consideration of the DRI question, it

is recommended that the Committee also be allowed to

investigate and make recommendations concerning

General University Extension.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried with-

out dissent that the Committee remain organized for the

purpose of considering recommendations concerning Desert

Research Institute and other Statewide programs not yet

studied by this group.



Dr. White then distributed a modified report which she had

prepared and moved that it be adopted. Motion seconded by

Mr. Grant.



It was pointed out by the Chairman that the report of the

Committee had not yet been fully presented and suggested

that it might be premature to request adoption of a specific

recommendation at this point. Dr. White concurred and asked

that her motion be withdrawn. Mr. Grant concurred.



Mr. Humphrey continued with the presentation of the Com-

mittee, noting that in its meeting of February 9, the Com-

mittee had requested that it be specified that there were

certain items in the minority report that had not been

discussed by the Committee and were not contained in the

majority report; specifically, the recommendation that the

Chancellor's Office be located in the State Capitol, and

the statement that delegated to the President the duties

of contracting officer and provided for a separate legal

seal and mace.



Mr. Humphrey then requested that members of the Committee

be allowed to make comments if they desired or to respond

to any questions the Regents might have.



Dr. Moyer spoke of his concern that if the responsibility

for his Campus rested with him, then he would hope the

authority would be vested in him. He stated that he felt

the System Officer need not be an executive or line of-

ficer except in matters concerning the Statewide System;

that a coordinating officer could provide coordination

where required or requested and serve as a staff officer

to the Board.



Vice President Mordy spoke of the concern of the Desert

Research Institute as it would be affected by granting of

autonomy to each Campus and suggested that perhaps DRI

should also become a separate entity of the University.



Dr. Bushnell requested the Regents to read the majority

report together with the minority report so that the very

great difference between the recommendations would become

apparent.



Both Dr. Malone and Professor Ross expressed concern that

the Regents be completely aware of the difference between

the terms "executive" and "coordinating" as it relates to

the System Officer.



Professor Ross underscored the emphasis on the term execu-

tive, pointing out that the Regents must be concerned with

the probability of governing a multi-Campus System in the

near future and stated that, in his opinion, their decision

must be made with this consideration in mind.



In response to a question from Mr. Jacobsen as to the

reason for the recommendation that the titles be reversed,

Dr. Saville reminded the Board of the several consultants

who had recommended this specific move.



Dr. Anderson then read for the Board a copy of a resolution

adopted by the ASUN Senate, as follows:



A. S. U. N. SENATE RESOLUTION

CONCERNING ADMINISTRATIVE REORGANIZATION



In view of the need of the University of Nevada for

an executive with administrative authority over both

Northern and Southern Campuses for the purposes of

directing Statewide educational goals, directing the

University Extension System, and consolidating the

budgets of each Campus, the A. S. U. N. Senate does

therefore resolve that the present administrative

structure be retained.



Passed unanimously

February 7, 1968



Dr. Anderson also noted the presence of Ernie Maupin and

asked for his comments. Mr. Maupin stated that he had

nothing to add except to make the observation that it

appeared to him after hearing the Ad Hoc Committee's re-

port that the ASUN was essentially endorsing the adoption

of Plan #2. Mr. Mc Dermott asked if the ASUN had re-

viewed the Committee report prior to the passing of their

resolution. Mr. Maupin replied that they had not seen

the report until it had been distributed to those present

at the Board of Regents meeting.



Mr. Humphrey was requested to read a letter from Dr. James

Botsford, President of the University of Nevada Alumni

Association, in which he stated that the Alumni Association

had polled its Executive Committee, using the ballot form

submitted to the faculty, and based on the results of that

survey recommended to the Regents the adoption of Plan #2.



Mr. James Bilbray, President of the NSU Alumni Association,

stated that his members support Plan #3 but he believed

would accept a compromise between Plans 2 and 3.



Mr. Bell stated that many months have been spent in study

and discussion concerning reorganization, hearing from

experts, and reviewing material. He said that he would

hope the thrust for development of each Campus would come

from the Chief Officer of that Campus and that he would

hope that the Board of Regents would have enough confi-

dence to look to the Chancellors for recommendations con-

cerning their Campuses.



At this point, the Chairman adjourned the meeting for lunch,

reconvening at 1:45 P.M. at which time discussion on the admin-

istrative reorganization resumed.



Mr. Hug reopened the discussion by stating that he did not

feel there was a great deal of difference of opinion as to

the way the University System should operate. He said

that, in his opinion, the difference seems to be in how

one views the role of the System Officer. Mr. Hug moved

that the Board of Regents go on record as favoring one

Statewide System with the Chief Executive Officer of the

System to be the Chancellor of the University; the Chief

Executive Officer of each Campus to be a President. At

the same time, Mr. Hug continued, the Board recognize in

general terms the necessity for autonomy for each Campus.

He requested that the Chairman of the Board appoint an

appropriate committee to make nominations for the position

of Chancellor. Mr. Hug further moved that the Board of

Regents, at a future date and with the recommendations

received from the Ad Hoc Committee, get together with the

President's (Chancellor's) Advisory Cabinet to define

appropriate rolls and the manner in which the University

System should function. Motion seconded by Mr. Grant,

carried unanimously.



(Dr. Anderson appointed Mr. Seeliger, Mr. Grant and Mr.

Hug and the two Chairmen of the Faculty Senates to serve

on the committee requested by Mr. Hug. Mr. Seeliger was

appointed as Chairman.)

Robin Lang Keith, Instructor, Rank I, January 16 to May 31,

1968 at the annual salary rate of $7200 (temporary posi-

tion)



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

without dissent that the above personnel actions be

confirmed.



Mr. Humphrey noted that when the By-Laws of the Board of

Regents were revised in 1965, Article VI, Section 3, e,

delegated to the President the responsibility to "appoint

all officers and employees of the University, provided

that the Board of Regents or one of its committees shall

approve appointment of persons who are responsible di-

rectly to the President, of all Deans, Directors and

major administrative officers, and of persons to tenure."

The practice of referring all personnel appointments to

the Board for confirmation has continued and Mr. Humphrey

requested that the Administration be advised as to whether

or not the Board wishes to continue acting upon all per-

sonnel appointments.



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

without dissent that the By-Laws be followed and person-

nel appointments, other than those specifically reserved

to the Board, become final upon approval of the President.



6. Roll Call Vote



Mr. Humphrey noted that the Board of Regents, at its meet-

ing on January 12-13, 1968, requested information concern-

ing the requirement that a roll call vote must be taken

under certain conditions; e. g., when spending money. A

careful search has revealed that this was a practice begun

under the requirements of the By-Laws of the Board adopted

in 1926 and, although not carried forward in the Revised

By-Laws of the Board of 1965, the practice has continued.

Mr. Humphrey recommended that the practice be discontinued

except when a member requests a recorded vote.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



7. Approval of Check Registers



Acting President Humphrey recommended approval of the check

registers as submitted by the Office of the Vice President

Finance (filed in permanent minutes).



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

without dissent that the check registers be approved as

submitted.



8. Transfer of Funds



Mr. Humphrey reported the following transfers of funds:



#255 $1000 from the Contingency Reserve, Instruction,

Nevada Southern University, to School of Fine Arts

to provide additional funds for wages.



Mr. Humphrey also recommended approval by the Board of the

following transfers of funds from the Contingency Reserve:



#260 $2575 from the Contingency Reserve, Instruction,

University of Nevada to Orvis School of Nursing

to provide funds for videotapes ($1200) and hono-

rarium for a Physiology Lecturer ($1375).



#262 $14,040 from Contingency Reserve, University of

Nevada to Property, Fidelity and Liability Insur-

ance Premiums account to provide funds for oper-

ating.



#263 $7500 from Contingency Reserve, University of

Nevada to Postage to provide additional operating

funds.



#264 $5000 from Contingency Reserve, University of Nevada

to Central Office Services to provide additional

operating funds.



#265 $3960 from Contingency Reserve, NSU to Property,

Fidelity and Liability Insurance Premiums account

to provide additional operating funds.



#269 $5225 from Contingency Reserve, NSU to School of

Social Science to provide for a 1/2 year profes-

sional contract.



#270 $5550 from Contingency Reserve, NSU to School of

Education to provide for a 1/2 year professional

contract.



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

without dissent that the fund transfers be approved.



Mr. Humphrey also noted that $3810.86 is required for the

1/9 matching of the National Defense Student Loan Program

and $1023.82 for the Nursing Student Loan Program at Nevada

Southern. He recommended that $2000 be transferred from

the David Russell Loan Fund (1-61-5001) and $2834.68 from

the Garvey Rhodes Loan Fund (1-61-5006).



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above fund transfer be approved.



Mr. Humphrey requested the Board approve the addition to

the agenda of consideration of distribution of funds re-

maining in the Laboratory of Human Development account.



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

without disent that the item be added to the agenda and

the following distribution of the remaining funds be

approved as recommended by Mr. Humphrey:



$1709.85 be made available to NSU for campaign

purposes of the Performing Arts Center.



$2246.04 be made available to the Department of

Anatomy, University of Nevada, thereby conforming

to the intent of the gifts from the Hancock Founda-

tion and from Dr. Peter Frandsen.



9. Graduate Assistant Salaries



Mr. Humphrey reported that Graduate Assistants are present-

ly paid $2300 plus a waiver of fees for 9 months of service.

This assumes that they will devote approximately 1/2 time

to their assignments. Second year Graduate Assistants are

paid $2500 and third year $2700. He recommended that these

salaries be raised $200 annually, effective 1968-69. This

8.6% adjustment is similar to the adjustment in base re-

ceived in 1967-68 by professional faculty. Mr. Humphrey

noted that this increase will cost the University of Nevada

budget approximately $20,000 (100 GAs x $200) and the NSU

budget $3000 (15 GAs x $200). The cost will be absorbed

when the tentative work program is revised either by use

of contingency reserves or reallocations.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



10. Proposal for Commencement Date, 1969, NSU



Mr. Humphrey reported that Chancellor Moyer has requested

that the 1969 date for Nevada Southern's Commencement be

established and has given as his first choice Saturday,

June 7, and second choice is Thursday, June 5. Mr.

Humphrey noted that the University of Nevada calendar

already schedules Commencement on Saturday, June 7, 1969

and therefore recommended that the Nevada Southern Uni-

versity's Commencement be scheduled for Thursday, June 5,

1969.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



Mr. Humphrey also suggested to the Regents that henceforth

each University President be responsible for Commencement

on his respective Campus and the Chancellor as Chief

System Officer be present only as a representative of the

System. By consensus, this suggestion was approved.



11. Proposal to Rename the Journalism Building (University of

Nevada)



Mr. Humphrey noted that several activities from the Student

Affairs Office will soon occupy the Journalism building

(Financial Aids, Graduate Placement, Veterans' Affairs,

Counseling and Testing and the Foreign Student Adviser)

and recommended that the building be designated the Student

Services Center.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



12. Utility Easement (University of Nevada)



Mr. Pine reported that the Sierra Pacific Power Company has

requested an easement 100 feet long for a gas line to pro-

vide service to the Historical Society building. Mr.

Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the easement be granted as recommended.



13. Planters at Entrance of Jot Travis Union (University of

Nevada)



Mr. Pine reported that the Jot Travis Union Board has

requested approval of the placement of planters in front

of the two front entrances on the northeast side of the

building. The estimated cost is $1500 for which Student

Union funds are available. Mr. Humphry noted that

Chancellor Miller has endorsed this request and he recom-

mended approval by the Board.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, car-

ried without dissent that the above recommendation be

approved.



14. Property Offered for Sale to the University of Nevada



(a) Mr. Pine reported that Realtor Sid Robinson has offered

32,171 sq. ft. of property west of the Water Resources

building at 1661 North Virginia Street. He noted that

this is on the west side of the street. Improvements

consist of a 38 year old house and the total price is

$60,000.



Mr. Humphrey stated that neither he nor Chancellor

Miller recommended acceptance of the offer.



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

without dissent that the offer be rejected.



(b) Mr. Pine reported that Mrs. F. Meng, 1001 North Sierra

Street, has again offered her property for sale. Mr.

Humphrey stated that neither he nor Chancellor Miller

recommended acceptance of the offer.



(c) Mr. Pine reported that the appraisal on the Bradley-

Drendel property has been completed. Mr. Pine stated

that both he and Dr. Miller had carefully reviewed

this matter and do not recommend acquisition of the

property because of the separation of the land from

the main Campus by a major 4-lane thoroughfare,

which will present not only access problems but pos-

sibly also problems concerning the safety of students

and others who might use University buildings on this

property. Mr. Humphrey recommended that the offer

be rejected.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott,

carried without dissent that the offer be rejected

at this time.



15. Bid Openings



Mr. Pine reported that the State Planning Board has opened

bids for the extension of the central heat plant at the

University of Nevada and has recommended that the contract

be awarded to the low bidder, Hillcrest Plumbing, in the

amount of $236,350.



Mr. Humphrey recommended that the Board of Regents concur

in the award of the contract as noted above.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



Mr. Westfall reported that bids for the enclosure of the

patio in Frazier Hall for the television studio were

opened on February 8 as follows:



Kalb Construction $23,986

Tiberti Construction 22,300

UTE, Inc. 24,325

Argus Construction 21,970

Rishling 23,693

Fred Stone Construction 21,847

Rem Construction 25,675



Mr. Westfall stated that both he and Chancellor Moyer recom-

mend acceptance of the bid of Fred Stone Construction

Company, Inc. in the amount of $21,847. Mr. Humphrey recom-

mended award of the contract as noted above.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



Dr. White stated that she did not feel that it was sufficiently

clear to all those present just what action the Board had taken

concerning administrative reorganization. Discussion revealed

a consensus on the part of the Regents that they had not adopted

a plan of organization as proposed in either the majority or

minority report. Mr. Hug added that key point was that the

Board had gone on record as approving a Statewide System but

with maximum autonomy for each Campus and it was now important

that the Board further resolve the problems by deciding how

they wish to operate within the framework.



16. Stock Transfer



Mr. Humphrey requested the adoption of the following resolu-

tion to allow for the transfer of stock received from the

Anna Lander Mc Donnell estate:



RESOLUTION #68-2



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada has received 260

shares Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company common stock,

certificates P61084/5 and P0195434; 398 shares Standard

Oil of New Jersey capital stock, certificates PH

25199/201 and PF 35183; 285 shares Pullman, Inc.

capital stock, certificates N379192/3 and NF580194;

1496 shares of Sears Roebuck & Co. common stock

certificates L2-013686/99 and L1-022338; and



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada has received cash

in the sum of $70,781.96;



WHEREAS, the above mentioned stock is to be transferred

in accordance with the terms of the endowment agree-

ment; and



WHEREAS, the above mentioned stock and cash is a gift

of the Estate of Anna Lander Mc Donnell to the Uni-

versity of Nevada for the support of the Center for

Western North American Studies;



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of

Regents, University of Nevada does hereby authorize

Acting President Neil D. Humphrey to transfer the

above mentioned shares of common and capital stock

to Tahoe & Co., the nominee of the Trust Department

of the First National Bank of Nevada and to sign

the necessary stock powers.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, car-

ried without dissent that the above resolution be adopted.



17. Nevada Educational Development Council



Mr. Humphrey reported that the University of Nevada is cur-

rently represented on this Council by Chancellors Miller

and Moyer with Regent Al Seeliger serving on the Council

in a separate capacity. Mr. James Butler, President of

the Council, has requested that the University designate

a member to serve on the Steering Committee. Mr. Humphrey

recommended that Mr. Seeliger be so designated.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



18. ROTC at Nevada Southern University



Mr. Humphrey referred to the report of the Nevada Southern

University Ad Hoc Committee to study ROTC, which had been

transmitted with the Board agenda as an informational

item. (Report attached to permanent minutes.) Mr. Humphrey

recommended that no action be taken at this time but that

the subject be rescheduled for action at the April meeting

after allowing the Nevada Southern University Faculty

Senate adequate time for review of the Committee recom-

mendations.



19. Nevada Community College



Mr. Humphrey reported that the study had continued con-

cerning the definition of Associate of Arts degree and

submitted a letter from Dr. James Bemis, Northwest Associ-

ation of Secondary and Higher Schools, in which he stated

that an Associate of Science or Associate of Arts degree

is normally given by a Junior College, a Community College

or a 4-year College, from which, Mr. Humphrey stated, can

be concluded that an Associate Degree is clearly a colle-

giate level degree.



Mr. Seeliger requested that this information be forwarded

to the State Board of Education.



Mr. Humphrey then reported that negotiations are proceed-

ing with Nevada Community College. He stated that Dr.

Voris had met with both him and Dr. Gorrell on January

29 and it was agreed that Dr. Voris would draw a letter

of intent, that would satisfy the Board of Nevada Community

College as to what they wished to contract for beginning

in Fall, 1968. Mr. Humphrey stated that the University

is now waiting for the letter of intent from Dr. Voris.



20. Report of the Investment Advisory Committee Meeting of

January 12, 1968



Mr. Humphrey referred to the minutes of the Committee

which had been transmitted to the Board with the agenda

material and recommended approval. The minutes are as

follows:



The Committee met at 12:00 noon in the Hardy Room, Jot

Travis Student Union. Present were: Public Member Julius

Bergen, and Board Members Procter R. Hug, Jr., Mrs. Molly

Magee and Paul Mc Dermott. Also present were: Board of

Regents Chairman Fred M. Anderson and Acting President

Neil D. Humphrey. Representing First National Bank of

Nevada were: Mr. R. O. Kwapil, Vice President and Senior

Trust Officer, and Mr. Walter D. Bradley, Trust Officer.



Mr. Procter Hug presided.



Mr. Kwapil and Mr. Bradley reviewed the current status of

the investment fund -- indicating that the trend of bond

prices had not been too satisfactory, but that stocks,

especially blue chip, had been doing well. They felt that

there might be a future buying opportunity, and that present

short term moneys, mostly in U. S. Government securities

(some in General Motors Acceptances, soon to come due) be

held for such an opportunity.



Mrs. Magee asked if it were permissible to invest in land

and suggested that the Attorney General might be requested

to deliver an opinion which might assist the Board in

establishing policy.



Dean Weems suggested the advisability of a small commitment

in General Telephone and Electronics Convertible Bonds.



Mrs. Magee moved, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, that the

proceeds of the General Motors Acceptance be placed in

short term United States securities with the exception of

up to $50,000 to be used to purchase General Telephone

and Electronics Convertible Bonds. Motion passed.



Mr. Bradley indicated that Life Insurance stocks were cur-

rently depressed, but showing some signs of revival, and

may be a good buy soon. He said the Transamerica Corpora-

tion, owner of Occidental Insurance Company, was considered

a good possibility.



Mr. Bergen moved, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, that Inter-

national Harvester holdings be sold and White Motor

Corporation be purchased with the proceeds. Motion carried.



A discussion was held on meeting policy. It was generally

agreed that it would be desirable to hold the Investment

Advisory Committee meetings on the same weekends the Board

of Regents meets in Reno. However, because there was no

general agreement as to an appropriate day or time of day

to meet (possibilities: Thursday noon, Thursday evening,

Friday noon, Friday evening, Saturday noon) no final

policy decision was made.



It was agreed to meet next in Reno on Saturday, March 9,

at 12:00 noon.



Meeting adjourned at 1:40 P.M.



Robert C. Weems, Jr.

Acting Secretary



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

without dissent that the minutes of the meeting be approved

as distributed.



21. NSU Student Hospitalization Insurance



Mr. Humphrey reported that Chancellor Moyer has recommended

a voluntary program of student hospitalization insurance

at a premium of $10 per semester. An explanation of cover-

age was presented and is filed with the permanent minutes.

Mr. Humphrey recommended approval of the program, effective

immediately.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the recommendation be approved.



22. NSU Student Activity Fee



Mr. Humphrey reported that Chancellor Moyer has recommended

a $5 per semester increase in the CSNS compulsory fee to

cover the cost of football at NSU. This would raise the

student activity fee at NSU from $17 to $22 effective Fall

1968. Mr. Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



For the Board's information, Mr. Humphrey also submitted

a comparison of the present student fee schedule and the

Fall, 1968, schedule (filed with permanent minutes).



23. Changes in Nomenclature of Academic Units and Titles, NSU



Mr. Humphrey submitted to the Board recommendations from

Nevada Southern that the schools on that Campus be desig-

nated as Colleges and the Directors be designated Deans,

effective July 1, 1968. Mr. Humphrey recommended the

changes be approved as requested except that redesignation

of the General and Technical Institute as a College of

General Studies be deferred until the March meeting of

the Board to allow time for additional information to be

presented.



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

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved,

and effective July 1, 1968 the academic units be designated

as follows:



College of Fine Arts, to be headed by a Dean,

College of Humanities, to be headed by a Dean,

College of Science and Math, to be headed by a Dean,

College of Business, to be headed by a Dean,

College of Education, to be headed by a Dean,

College of Social Sciences, to be headed by a Dean,

and the titles of the Coordinator of Graduate

Studies be changed to Dean of Graduate Studies,

and the Dean of Faculty be changed to Vice

Chancellor for Academic Affairs.



24. NSU Alumni Association Constitution



Mr. Humphrey transmitted to the Board for information a

copy of the constitution recently adopted by the Nevada

Southern University Alumni Association (filed with perma-

nent minutes).



25. American Federation of Teachers, NSU



Mr. Humphrey transmitted a copy of a memorandum from

Chancellor Moyer concerning the organization of a chapter

of the AFT at Nevada Southern University and their request

for official recognition. Mr. Humphrey noted that this

matter has been referred to the Attorney General by Dr.

Moyer for advice on the legal implications of offical

recognition and recommended that no action be taken until

that advice had been received.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, car-

ried without dissent that the above recommendation be

approved.



26. New Graduate Programs, University of Nevada



Mr. Humphrey asked Chancellor Miller to present the pro-

posals for new graduate programs.



Master of Arts in Philosophy



Chancellor Miller reviewed the procedure which this pro-

posal has followed and stated that in addition to the

criteria covered in the detailed proposal (copy on file

in the President's Office) this program is a natural out-

growth of the strength of the Department at the under-

gradute level, it does not duplicate programs on the NSU

Campus and the program is in accord with the master plan-

ning for the U. N. Campus. Mr. Humphrey recommended ap-

proval of the program effective with the Fall semester

1968-69.



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

without dissent that the proposed Master of Arts in

Philosophy be approved, effective Fall semester 1968-69.



Ph. D. in Biology



Chancellor Miller reviewed the procedure this proposal had

followed and stated that the criteria detailed above also

applied to the proposed doctoral program in the Department

of Biology. (Copy of detailed proposal on file in the

President's Office.) Mr. Humphrey recommended approval

of the program effective with the Fall semester 1968-69.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, car-

ried without dissent that the proposed Ph. D. in Biology

be approved, effective Fall semester 1968-69.

28. Revenue Certificates, Radiological Health Laboratory, NSU



Mr. Humphrey stated that the Radiolocal Laboratory at

Nevada Southern had been constructed with the proceeds of

the sale of Revenue Certificates in the amount of $2 mil-

lion, authorized by the Board in 1965. He noted that this

account is now to be closed and there remains a surplus of

$98,739.61. He recommended the adoption of the following

resolution which would make available these surplus funds

LUTIONS IN CONFLICT HEREWITH.



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

without dissent that the resolution be adopted as recom-

mended.



29. Assembly Resolution Re. Medical School



Mr. Humphrey spoke of the resolution introduced in the

Special Session of the Legislature which is designed to

halt the feasibility study for the proposed Medical School.

He stated that it is the Administration's intent, unless

otherwise instructed by the Board, to appear at the hearing

which has been called for Tuesday, February 13, and to in-

form the Legislature that the University wishes to continue

the study with a report to be made to the Regents and then

to the 1969 Session of the Legislature.



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

unanimously that the Administration be authorized to ex-

press to the Legislature, at the hearing on Tuesday,

February 13, that the University believes it has proceeded

in good faith and within the authorization of the resolu-

tion of the 1967 Legislature to conduct a feasibility

study of the proposed Medical School without the use of

tion to proceed, if permitted, with the study, with the

results to be made available to the 1969 Session of the

Legislature.



30. Naming of NSU Student Union Building



Chancellor Moyer submitted a request that the Student

31. Little Valley



Mr. Humphrey stated that continuing rumors have circulated
