From the Nevada Society of Certified Public Accountants -

proposal to sponsor a scholarship award for outstanding

RESOLUTION NO. 60-2



WHEREAS, the Nevada Society of Certified Public Accountants

is a group composed of Professional Accountants engaged in

private and public accounting, and



WHEREAS, the aforementioned members of the Nevada Society

of Certified Public Accountants desire to foster high scho-

larship achievement in the University of Nevada, to assist

deserving students in attaining a College education in

Business Administration and Accounting, and to encourage

students to follow a course of study leading to the practice

of Accounting.



THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that a program be adopted by this

Society to provide awards to deserving students at the Uni-

versity of Nevada as follows:



1. An annual cash award of $200.00 payable in the amount

of $100.00 per semester to a deserving Senior student

majoring in Accounting.



2. An annual award of a plaque or similar symbol of recog-

nition to the most outstanding graduate of the Univer-

sity of Nevada majoring in Accounting.



3. A certificate of recognition to be given to the out-

standing Accounting student completing the first eight

hour basic Accounting course each year.



4. A permanent plaque to be given to the University of

Nevada which is to be hung in an appropriate place in

the College of Business Administration, and on which

the name of the outstanding graduate majoring in

Accounting each year is to be engraved, and



BE IT RESOLVED, that the following standards and procedures

be followed in the selection of the students to receive the

awards.



1. The cash award of $200.00 is to be awarded to the out-

standing Junior student who has completed, or will com-

plete by the end of the school year, at least twenty

semester hours in Accounting subjects based upon the

collective opinions of the Professors in Accounting at

the University of Nevada, and concurred by the College

of Business Administration Scholarship Committee. In

the case of two equal candidates the scholarship should

be awarded to the student who requires the most finan-

cial assistance to complete his College courses.



2. The annual awards to the most outstanding graduate and

to the outstanding student completing the basic course

in Accounting should be given to the outstanding stu-

dents selected by the Professors in Accounting at the

University of Nevada and approved by the Dean of the

College of Business Administration.



3. The decision to make any or all of the awards designated

above rests with the aforementioned Officials at the

University of Nevada whether at the Reno or Las Vegas

Campus as conditions permit. The Las Vegas Campus at

the present time does not provide Junior and Senior

Accounting courses; however, as the curriculum of that

Campus expands and four year courses are offered, the

cash and plaque awards may be made.



BE IT ALSO RESOLVED, that sufficient funds be appropriated

from the cash resources of this Society to carry out the

aims of this scholarship program.



Grants



From the U. S. Public Service - Federal Grant in the amount

of $9,492 for a Professional Nurse Traineeship Program.



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

unanimously that the gifts and grants be accepted, and

that the Secretary write appropriate notes of thanks to

the donors.

the University has the right to waive the requirement.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously by roll call vote, that the bid be accepted

and a contract drawn as recommended.



7. Progress Report - Building Program



President Armstrong called on Mr. Rogers, who reported that

of the building projects under construction -- married hous-

ing is within 90% of completion and moving rapidly; Housing

and Home Finance Agency has given authority for funds for

completely filling the lake, some excavation material has

already been dumped into the lake to partially fill it; Din-

ing Hall is about 85% complete; the Men's Dormitory is about

85% complete; the Greenhouse about 95% compelte; Agriculture

Mechanics building, the Library, the Classroom and Physical

Education building in Las Vegas, are under way; the Fine

Arts building is 95-97% complete.



8. Housing and Home Finance Agency



President Armstrong reported on negotiations for the Women's

Dormitory. At the request of HHFA Mr. Hayden and Mr. Rogers

went to San Francisco to meet with Mr. Weinstein regarding

the application for funds. In the meeting, it was agreed

that bonding for this project should be combined with the

bonds for the present HHFA projects. Certain revisions in

the application, as listing below, were requested by HHFA,

to be treated as amendments to the original application:



(1) That the project scope should be shown as "approxi-

mately 200", rather than "195-205".



(2) That the University is not in a position at this

time to consider undertaking the Parking Lot proj-

ect referred to in Section 1, Chapter 360, Laws of

Nevada.



(3) That, although the construction cost estimate

appears "tight", the University believes it will

be adequate because



(a) the nature of the design is such that it

should be less expensive to construct than

the Men's Dormitory now being built,



(b) alternates will be included in the bidding

documents to permit "tailoring" awards to

funds available, or



(c) in the absence of any other alternative, the

scope of the project could be reduced without

too seriously impairing financial feasibility.



Mr. Hayden reported on his conference with Mr. Gorman, Vice

President of the First National Bank of Nevada, who advised

that there would be no difficulty involved in increasing

interim financing or extending it. The rate of 2-7/8% will

not continue on the increased interim financing, and Mr.

Gorman did not indicate the rate the bank would be willing

to offer. However, Mr. Hayden pointed out that the Univer-

sity can secure financing through HHFA at 2-7/8% on the

current project and 3-1/4% on the new project.



The President recommended that the loan for the Women's

Dormitory be combined with that for the other revenue bond

projects.



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

unanimously that loan for the Women's Dormitory be combined

with the other projects for which loan is being sought by

the University, that the Comptroller be authorized to nego-

tiate with the bank for the additional interim financing

and if the bank does not wish to offer the loan at at least

3-1/4%, that he secure the interim financing through HHFA.



President Armstrong distributed copies of finanical state-

ment prepared by Mr. Hayden at request of HHFA showing

"Anticipated Annual Financial Operations, Halls Financed by

HFFA", which summarized as follows:



Now pledged as security $ 81,351

To be pledged for new dormitory 38,562

--------

119,913

Excess 23,850

Total Income $143,763



Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the loan pledge include also income from

halls which may be approved.



President Armstrong reported that HHFA has allocated $12,600

for advance planning for a Social Science building on the

Reno Campus.



9. Capital Improvements - Legislative Program



President Armstrong reported on the problems facing the

Legislature regarding the appropriation for the Engineering

Mines building. The Governor and some members of the Legis-

lature are trying to keep at least ten million dollars in

the State's Reserve Fund, while other legislators believe

that more of the Reserve Fund should be used for current

appropriations. The $2,881,200 requested by the Univer-

sity for the Engineering Mines building would decrease the

Reserve Fund below the ten million dollars.



President Armstrong proposed, as an alternative though less

desirable program, but one which might be more acceptable

to the legislators, that the University agree to reduce the

request for the Engineering Mines building to the amount

required for the nuclear portion of the building ($225,000),

and to request appropriation at the next session of the

Legislature for the balance of the building. As part of the

substitute proposal, he recommended that the following items

included in the recommendation of the Governor and the State

Planning Board be dropped, also, and that the University

agree to accept instead certain items listed below.



Items in the Governor's and the Planning Boards recommenda-

tion to be dropped:



Master Plan, Reno Campus $ 48,280

Remodel Old Agriculture Building 24,420

Master Plan, Las Vegas Campus 9,000

--------

$ 81,700



Items to be substituted:



Nuclear Engineering Portion of Building $225,000

Student Union and Health Facility 300,000

Utilities, Reno Campus 68,700

Landscaping, Reno Campus 5,000

Utilities, Las Vegas Campus 42,000

Landscaping, Las Vegas Campus 10,000

--------

$650,700



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that if in the opinion of the President and the

Regents who are available at the time it does not seem feas-

ible that the University can obtain the entire Engineering

Mines building appropriation, the University propose to the

Legislature that this alternate plan would be acceptable as

a final resort.



10. Post Office



Dr. Armstrong discussed the University's plan to provide

Post Office facilities in the basement area of the new

Dining Hall, with approximately 1900 square feet of rental

area. It is proposed that the Post Office Department pay

to the University a monthly rental of 30 cents per square

foot, and that the University provide the necessary funds

to develop the facility and during the rental period would

provide maintenance, janitorial service, heat, light and

ventilation. The proposal has been referred to the local

Postmaster and by him to the Postal Installations Manager

in San Francisco. Since this item was not in the budget,

President Armstrong requested use of unallocated funds for

this purpose, at an amount of appoximately $18,000, to be

repaid in three or four years by payments from the Govern-

ment for Post Office rental.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

unanimously by roll call vote, that the President be author-

ized to use unallocated or non-budgeted funds to carry out

the plan for the Post Office on the Campus, as outlined

above.



11. Property, Southern Nevada



Mr. Germain discussed certain information which he has re-

ceived to the effect that some property is to open up along

the Colorado River below Davis Dam, and that there is a very

desirable piece of land which might be available to the

University, at no cost, under the Federal acquisition laws.

Mr. Germain suggested that the possibility of acquiring this

land be explored.



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

unanimously that the Regents from Clark County be authorized

to explore this matter further and to proceed to acquire the

land, if possible.



12. Ladino Dairy Sales



Mr. Crumley reported. The University is now in receipt of

an opinion from the Attorney General which states that the

procedure for sale of the farm meets legal requirements.

Received also from the Attorney General was an approved

Notice of Sale form for advertising for bids and an outline

of Procedure and Related Matters Connected with Sale of

University of Nevada Experimental (Ladino) Dairy Farm. If

it is the wish of the Board, Mr. Crumley indicated his will-

ingness to proceed along these lines, individually or with

anyone designated to work with him.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried

unamimously by roll call vote that Regent Crumley be author-

ized to proceed with the necessary steps to be taken in con-

nection with the sale of the Ladino Dairy Farm as outlined

by the Attorney General, and among other things to set the

date for the bid opening.



It was agreed by consensus that a special meeting of the

Board of Regents would be called for the purpose of opening

bids when the date is set.



13. Orr Ditch



Mr. C. E. Fleming has served as representative of the Uni-

versity and a member of the Board of Directors of the Orr

Ditch Company. Mr. Fleming is due to retire and the Uni-

versity Engineer, Mr. Rogers, has been elected to the Board

of Directors. Dr. Armstrong recommended that he be offi-

cially designated as the representative of the University,

in formal action by the Board.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Crumley, carried

unanimously that Mr. Rogers represent the University at

meetings of the Orr Ditch Company with authority to vote

the stock of the University.



14. University Press



President Armstrong discussed the need for and value of a

University Press. The imprint, University of Nevada Press,

would be used to designate a regular series of publications

sponsored by the University in conformity with certain pol-

icies to be established by the Board of Regents upon the

advice of the University Editor and an Advisory Editorial

Board, with the actual printing to be done in the State

Printing Office. The University Press would be one of the

major assignments of the University Editor, who would serve

as Chairman of the faculty committee to be known as the

Advisory Editorial Board of the University Press. The Uni-

versity Pres would, in general, consider for publication

materials for books, monograms, quarterly reviews, etc., of

a creative or scholarly nature, treating historical, liter-

ary or scientific data pertaining to Nevada and the West

generally. The Advisory Editorial Board would initiate

policy and procedure proposals in its advisory capacity to

the University Editor and would review such proposals ini-

tiated by the Editor of others.



Dr. Armstrong recommended that the Jesse M. Whited Founda-

tion be designated as an endowment for this purpose and

that the income of about $2000 per year be earmarked for

the University Press.



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

unanimously that the Jesse M. Whited Estate be used as an

endowment fund to establish the University of Nevada Press,

as recommended.



15. Distinguished Nevadan Awards and Honorary Degrees



Mr. Arnold, Chairman of the Regents' Committee, reported on

the meeting held on Wednesday, March 2. The Committee and

President Armstrong recommended for awards at Commencement

this year, honorary degrees as follows:



Roy A. Hardy, Doctor of Mining Engineering

Clark J. Guild, Doctor of Jurisprudence

C. V. Isbell, Doctor of Science



In addition, the Committee and President Armstrong recom-

mended the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws at a special

convocation for:



George Whittell



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously that the honorary degrees be conferred as

recommended above.



The Committee and President Armstrong recommended for

Distinguished Nevadan Awards at Commencement this year,

the following individuals:



Vail Pittman

Merwyn H. Brown

William H. Moffat

Frederick H. Dressler

Edgar J. Marston



Mr. Germain submitted the name of Chris H. Sheerin of Elko

for a Distinguished Nevadan Award at Commencement this year.

He noted that Mr. Sheerin is a graduate of the University of

Nevada, a former Regent, and known for his services to Nev-

ada in many ways and in many areas.



Motion by Mr. Crumley, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried

unanimously that the individuals recommended above, plus

Mr. Sheerin, be granted Distinguished Nevadan Awards.



Representatives of the Press agreed to keep these actions

on Honorary Degrees and Distinguished Nevadan Awards off

the record until an appropriate time preceding Commencement.



16. General Electric Company Proposal



A group of five representatives from General Electric Com-

pany met with the Regents at 11:30 A.M. to discuss a pro-

posed pilot study of long range community planning, using

a special technique known as "Simulation", with the City

of Reno becoming the area for the study. Mr. Jay. R.

Greene, Manager of Advanced Business Systems for General

Electric, discussed the details of the proposal on behalf

of his firm. He explained that this would be the first

project of its kind for an entire town or city area. The

City of Reno and the local Chamber of Commerce have already

been approached; the University of Nevada is being consider-

ed as a co-sponsoring agency. The General Electric repre-

sentative believed that if the initial phase is supported

locally, Federal funds would be available to carry the

program forward. The project is planned for a three-year

period and will probably require about a million and a half

dollars in that time, with approximately $90,000 needed to

get the program underway. The University would be asked in

the beginning phase of the program, only for office space

with two or three desks. By the second year, a computing

machine would be needed on the University Campus. Mr.

Greene stressed that while General Electric will provide

consulting services and will assist in any way it can,

leadership for raising funds should come from the community.



President Armstrong suggested that if General Electric would

provide one person to come to Reno, the University could

provide office space and undertake with others to explore

ways in which the program might be financed, and to see if

there is any interest in the community. President Armstrong

further suggested that a committee of Regents be appointed

to work with the Administration and other groups in study-

ing the proposal.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the University take the initial step by

setting up the committee to confer with General Electric

Company and the Chamber of Commerce and to make recommenda-

tion to the Board regarding the University's participation.



The Chairman appointed the following committee:



Dr. Anderson

Mr. Arnold

Mr. Crumley

Mr. Tyson

Dr. Lombardi, Chairman



17. Legislation



President Armstrong reported on the status of legislation

affecting the University, as follows:



AB 16 - Group Health and Accident Insurance - Passed and

signed by the Governor. This will make it possible

to develop an adequate health, accident, major med-

ical and group life insurance program for Univer-

sity employees. State agencies can contribute up

to 50% of the premium.



AB 175 - WICHE Modifications - Passed Assembly, lost on

Senate floor, now back for reconsideration.



AB 203 - Compulsory Retirement for Classified Employees -

Referred to Committee on Labor - probably dead for

this session.



SB 12 - Exempts University of Nevada from Bonded Indebted-

ness Payment on Gift Property - To Committee on

Taxation and probably lost for this session. Might

be covered by other legislation, already passed.



SB 37 - Permits Use of Facsimile Signature by Comptroller -

Passed and signed by Governor.



SB 38 - Allows Analysis of Soils and Water for Nevada Land-

owners - Passed Senate and now in Assembly.



SB 69 - Permits State Health Officer to Serve in Public

Health Program and Teach Courses at the University

in Nevada - Passed and sent to Governor. This bill

provides that the Health Officer may serve, but may

not be paid.



SB 113 - Prohibits Employment of Public Relations Officer in

State Agencies - Probably lost.



18. Leaves of Absence and Related Matters



Policy was approved at the last meeting contingent upon an

opinion of the Attorney General. The Attorney General ad-

vises remedial legislation and an appropriate bill has been

drawn for introduction by Senator Gallaher, Chairman of the

Committee on State University.



19. Cornerstone, J. E. Church Fine Arts Building



President Armstrong invited the Regents to attend the cor-

nerstone laying ceremony at 2:00 P.M. on Sunday, March 6.

He also invited the Regents to meet at the President's

Office on that date at 1:00 P.M. to visit the Vacuum Gage

Laboratory in the Physics Department.



20. Name Plates for Buildings



President Armstrong suggested that name plates be author-

ized for buildings which have been named for individuals.



Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried

unanimously that the University Engineer be authorized to

proceed with plans for securing suitable name plates for

Maude Frzier Hall, Archie C. Grant Hall, Peter Frandsen

Hall, and Reuben C. Thompson Hall.



21. Whittell Property



Dr. Anderson, after discussion with the President, made the

suggestion to Captain Whittell that it would be appropriate

for the property in Little Valley donated by him to the

University to be named for him. Captain Whittell agreed to

the suggestion. President Armstrong recommended that this

be done, and it was agreed by consensus that the exact word-

ing of a suitable name be referred to the Regents' Building

Committee for recommendation at the next meeting.



22. Momand Estate



President Armstrong reported that the will of Agenes Momand

gives to the University ultimately approximately $700,000,

but distribution depends upon the length of life of two

beneficiaries. The fee requested for services on behalf of

the University by the firm of Breed, Abbot, and Morgan of

New York was $30,000. The Regents asked Mr. Porter for

advice as to whether or not this was a reasonable sum for

the services. Mr. Porter will report at the next meeting.



23. Emeritus Status



President Armstrong read the action of the Board of Regents

of June 5, 1948 as follows:



"Each member of the staff of the University who goes on

the retired list shall be given, during the remainder

of his life, an emeritus ranking the same as his rank-

ing during the final year of service. An emeritus

professor shall be a member of the University Faculty

with voice but not with vote at Faculty meetings."



Dr. Armstrong pointed out that emeritus status has been

granted in practice in the past by positive action by the

Board of Regents, and recommended that the 1948 action of

the Board be modified to bring the procedure in line with

the procedure followed in granting tenure, promotions, etc.,

and ending with action by the Board of Regents.



Motion by Mr. Crumley, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried

unanimously that the 1948 policy statement be modified in

accordance with the recommendation of the President, and

the President be authorized to prepare a statement to ac-

complish that purpose and present it at the next meeting.



24. Regents' Meetings



President Armstrong proposed that the next meeting be held

in April in Ely, and that the following meeting be held in

Las Vegas.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the next regular meeting of the Board be

held in Ely on Saturday, April 2, and the following meeting

be held in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 7.



The meeting adjourned at 12:45 P.M.
