                             Reno, Nevada, March 1st, 1907

To The Honorable

    The Senate and Assembly

        of the State of Nevada:

Dear Sirs:

The undersigned, members of the Board of Regents of the Univer-

sity of Nevada - (Hon. Charles B. Henderson being absent from the

State and hence not signing) - DO RESPECTFULLY REQUEST YOUR HON-

ORABLE BODIES to appropriate for the support of the University of

Nevada for the years 1907 and 1908 (including about $10,500 in-

terest on $142,600 of Nevada and Massachusetts State Bonds) the

sum of $150,000 instead of the sum of $110,000 asked for by the

retiring Board of Regents.

We ask for this additional appropriation in order to enable us

to put in a Central Steam Heating Plant, to beautify and improve

the grounds and for cement walks, and also to allow a contingent

fund, which can be drawn upon in emergency cases such, for in-

stance, as the increase in salary of some good Professor whom we

desire to keep and who may be offered, by some other Institution,

a larger salary than he is now receiving, or will receive, under

the schedule submitted by the President of the University of

Nevada in his report to the Governor.

                             Very respectfully,

                             Oscar J. Smith

                             Regents of the University

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