President Clark recommended that, on the recommendation of Com-
missioner Dinsmore, the salary of Mr. V. E. Cokefair be raised
from $90 to $100 per month, effective from March 1, 1922.  Mr.
Cokefair is the Janitor for the Departments of Pure Foods and
Drugs and Weights and Measures and the State Hygienic Laboratory
and is an effective assistant for Commissioner Dinsmore in his
pure food work.  It is understood that as the weather improves
and he has to devote less time to janitorial service, he is to
be increasingly useful in the field work for Commissioner
Dinsmore.  Mrs. Hood made the motion.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye
    Mr. North            Aye

At the request of Professor Sarah L. Lewis, President Clark
recommended that Mrs. Louise Kerr Hammond be elected Instructor
in the Department of Home Economics at a salary of $2000, both
service and salary to be effective from September first next.
Mr. North made the motion.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye
    Mr. North            Aye

Judge Talbot arrived.

President Clark notified the Board that at the January, 1922
meeting of the Board of Education of the State of Washington, the
University of Nevada was placed upon their accredited list.

On motion of Judge Talbot, and in view of the special emergency
and necessity that the University should have alcohol to use
for its scientific and mechanical purposes, the University of
Nevada was approved and designated as being authorized to pur-
chase through Charles H. Gorman, Curator of the University, pure
grain alcohol for such use by the University, in conformity with
Chapter 219, Statutes of Nevada, 1921.

All members voted Aye.

President Clark recommended that, beginning with July 1, 1922,
for actual service, Miss Katherine Riegelhuth be transferred
from the Department of German to the Department of English
with the rank of Associate Professor in English, without change
of salary.

Mr. North made the motion and all members present voted Aye.

President Clark recommended that the courses now offered by the
Department of German should hereafter be given in connection
with course offerings in the Department now known as the Romanic
Language Department and that the name of this Department should
be changed to the Department of Modern Languages.

Mrs. Hood made the motion and all members present voted in favor
of it.

President Clark recommended that ther work formerly cared for in
the Department of Business Administration be consolidated with
the work in the Department of Economics and Sociology and that
the consolidated Department be known as the Department of Econom-
ics, Business and Sociology.

Judge Talbot made the motion and all members voted favorably.

Judge Talbot moved that consideration of the amended Bylaws and
Statues of the University should be taken up at the Commencement
meeting of the Board unless special notice of a meeting for this
purpose should be sent out earlier.

All members present voted Aye.
