The meeting was called to order by Chairman Anderson at 9:30 A.M.



1. Approval of Minutes of Previous Meeting



Upon motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, and

unanimous vote, the minutes of the meeting of February 10,

1968 were approved as distributed.



Dr. Anderson then introduced 3 students from the University of

Nevada who had requested to speak on the subject of compulsory

ROTC at the University of Nevada, Paul Strickland, Keith Lindholm

and Dan O'Bryan. The students stated that they believed they

represented the opinion of a substantial number of students con-

cerning ROTC. They stated that if ROTC is compulsory on one

Campus, it should be on both. However, they added, student

opinion should have a bearing on whatever decision is made.



Following their presentation, Dr. Anderson invited discussion

between the students and the Regents and any of the staff

present. At this point, one of the students stated that Colonel

Ralf had said that a voluntary program is feasible and believed

that it would be a better program. He further noted that ROTC

is not an academic subject and suggested that it not be counted

in the grade point average as long as it is compulsory.



Dr. Anderson asked on what grounds they were basing their con-

tention that it was non-academic. The student replied that the

grade is not based solely on text book information but on drill

proficiency and the ability to assemble and disassemble weapons.

He also stated that military officers have implied that ROTC is

not of a great deal of value in active service.



Mr. Jacobsen suggested that perhaps the students might be in-

terested in polling a number of the alumni who have already ex-

perienced ROTC to get a more accurate picture of the benefits

of ROTC.



In response to an invitation from Dr. Anderson to express his

own or faculty viewpoint, Professor Charles Ross stated that

he would prefer to wait until the issue is ready again for

formal discussion with an official recommendation from the

Military Affairs Board and/or the President.



Mr. Seeliger asked if the students felt that Physical Education

should also be on a voluntary basis. The students replied that

it should be compulsory but not be computed as part of the grade

point average.



Mr. Pine volunteered his own personal experience as a two-year

ROTC student, stating that he believed that he was able to move

from a buck private to a Lieutenant Colonel during his period of

active duty because of his experience with ROTC. Dr. Lombardi

also stated that he would not have taken ROTC while he was at

the University of Nevada had it not been compulsory; however,

he added, he believed that the experience was most beneficial

and he was grateful for the training.



Mr. Mc Dermott stated that his experience while in the service

indicated that enlisted men who had previous ROTC training

were able to qualify for promotion much faster than those who

had no ROTC training.



Dr. Anderson then thanked the students for their statements and

invited them to leave their statements with the Secretary to be

incorporated in the file.

ed that the School of Science and Mathematics has re-

quested the purchase of a turbo-molecular pump system.

Identical bids of $7117.30 were received from Welch

Scientific Company and Van Waters & Rogers. President

Moyer recommended that the purchase order be issued

follows:



American Shuffleboard $ 337.00

National Billiard 280.00



Mr. Humphrey reported that NSU Administration had

recommended award of the entire bid to National

Billiard Company, noting that the difference between

their bid and Brunswick bid was greater than indicated

due to Brunswick having "no bid" two items worth ap-

proximately $100 and also because Brunswick bid two

tables without ball return where National bid with

ball return, a difference of between $50 to $100 per

table. The recommendation of the Buyer, Director of

Student Programs, Dean of Students, Business Manager

and President of NSU was endorsed by Mr. Humphrey and

approval of the Board was requested.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Dr. White,

carried without dissent that the above recommendation

be approved and the contract issued to National

the reasons stipulated in the letter from Mr.

nent minutes).

Albers, Inc., the second low bidder.



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

carried without dissent that the above recommenda-

tions be approved.

Mr. Humphrey noted that to provide for implementation as of

the Spring semester, this catalog change had been declared

provisionally effective subject to final approval of the

Board of Regents, under the provisions of the University

Code, Section 4.4.9. Mr. Humphrey recommended approval

by the Board.



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

without dissent that the above recommended changes be

approved.



10. Dr. Silas E. Ross, Jr., Pre-Medical Memorial Fund



Mr. Humphrey reported that upon the death of Dr. Silas E.

Ross, Jr., numerous contributions were made to the Uni-

versity of Nevada in his memory. The Ross family request-

ed that these contributions be placed in the Silas E.

Ross, Jr., M. D. Pre-Medical Memorial Fund. This fund

presently totals $2103 and there is an indication that

substantially more monies will be made available. Mr.

Humphrey added that the Ross family has requested that:



a. This fund be designated as a fund functioning as an

endowment and be administered and invested in ac-

cordance with current policies of the Board of Regents.



b. The income be distributed semi-annually by a special

Board of Trustees, consisting of S. E. Ross, Sr.,

John E. Palmer, M. D., and Ray E. Armstrong, C. P. A.,

who will make recommendations to the Board of Regents

for the benefit of the pre-medical program at the Uni-

versity of Nevada.



c. Disbursement of the corpus of the fund shall also be

possible upon the recommendation of the Board of

Trustees.



Mr. Humphrey recommended that this procedure be approved,

except that the President, U. N. be delegated by the Board

of Regents to review the proposals of the Board of Trustees

and to refer their proposals to the Board of Regents only

if he should disagree with their action.



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

without dissent that the Board of Regents approve the

above recommendations, noting that it is assumed that

since the Board of Regents designates the first Board of

Trustees, it would also designate replacements to the

Board.



11. Proposed Change in Rates for Residence Halls



Mr. Humphrey stated that changes in rates were being propos-

ed on both Campuses and requested the two Presidents to make

the proposals.



(a) University of Nevada - President Miller noted that the

present Summer rate in the U. N. residence halls is

$5 per person per day with maid service. Participants

at some of the longer seminars and institutes wish to

bring minor children, Dr. Miller noted, and he recom-

mended a reduced rate of $2.50 per day per person for

dependents (19 years of age or less) staying in the

residence hall with their parents, provided the length

of stay is 3 weeks or longer. Mr. Humphrey endorsed

the recommendation and requested approval of the pro-

posed rate change.



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

carried without dissent that the above rate change

be approved.



(b) Nevada Southern University - President Moyer noted

the present schedule for less than semester occupancy

of residence halls is as follows:



1 or 2 days $3 per day

3 to 6 days $2 per day

1 to 6 days with maid service $5 per day

7 days or more $2 per day plus

meal ticket



Dr. Moyer recommended that the rate for Nevada

Southern University be changed as follows:



1st day or 1 day occupancy $3 per day

2 to 6 days $2 per day

7 days or more $2 per day plus

meal ticket



Mr. Humphrey endorsed the recommendation and requested

approval of the proposed rate change.



Motion by Mr. Mc Dermott, seconded by Dr. White,

carried without dissent that the above rate change

be approved.



12. Policy Statement on Cancellation of Financial Obligations

of Deceased Students



Mr. Humphrey reported that President Miller had recommended

that the following policy be adopted:



In the event of the death of a student, the Dean of

Students may if circumstances warrant, authorize

the cancellation of any or all financial obligations

due the University of Nevada. This policy does not

supersede existing Federal regulations governing NDSL,

Nursing, or other Federal aids already having cancel-

lation provisions.



Mr. Humphrey noted that President Moyer concurred in the

proposed policy and recommended approval by the Board.



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

without dissent that the above policy statement be adopted,

effective immediately, applicable to both the University of

Nevada and Nevada Southern University.



13. Stead Campus Resolution



Mr. Humphrey reported that the regional representative of

the Surplus Property Division, H. E. W., has requested that

the Board take appropriate action to authorize the execu-

tion of documents pertaining to the transfer of Stead. He

recommended that the Board adopt the following resolution,

designed for that purpose:



RESOLUTION #68-4



WHEREAS, certain real property owned by the United

States, consisting of Stead Air Force Base, located

in the County of Washoe, State of Nevada, has been

declared surplus and is subject to disposal for

educational purposes by the Secretary of Health,

Education and Welfare, under the Federal Property

and Administrative Services Act of 1949, as amended,

and rules and regulations promulgated pursuant there-

to; and



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada needs a portion of said property and can

utilize the same for educational purposes in accord-

ance with the requirement of said Act and the rules

and regulations promulgated thereunder; and



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada has made application to the Secretary of

Health, Education and Welfare for transfer to it

of the above mentioned property for educational use

upon and subject to such exceptions, reservations,

terms, covenants, agreements, conditions and restric-

tions as the Secretary of Health, Education and

Welfare, or his authorized representative, may re-

quire in connection with the disposal of said property

under said Act and the rules and regulations issued

pursuant thereto;



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: That Neil D.

Humphrey, Acting Chancellor of the University of

Nevada, be and he is hereby authorized, for and

on behalf of the Board of Regents of the University

of Nevada, to do and perform any and all acts and

things which may be necessary to carry out the fore-

going resolution; including the preparing, making

and filing of plans, applications, reports and

other documents, including representations and

commitments regarding use and time within which

such use shall commence; the execution, acceptance,

delivery and recordation of agreements, deeds and

other instruments pertaining to the transfer of said

property; and the payment of any and all sums neces-

sary on account of the purchase price thereof or on

account of fees or costs incurred in connection with

the transfer of said property for surveys, title

searches, appraisals, recordation of instruments, or

escrow costs.



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

ried without dissent that the above resolution be adopted

as submitted.



14. Lease of Service Station, Stead Campus



Mr. Humphrey reported that one bid was received for a 5-year

lease of the service station facility at Stead Campus from

Jerry Urcheson and Lillian Killog at a rental of $.01 per

gallon of gasoline sold or $350 per month, whichever is

most. Mr. Humphrey noted that the lease has been approved

by the Federal government and he recommended its approval

by the Board.



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

without dissent that the lease be approved as recommended.



15. Status Report on Administrative Reorganization Study



Mr. Humphrey reported that the Ad Hoc Committee on Admin-

istrative Reorganization had met on February 27, 1968

concerning the proposal presented by W. A. Mordy, Vice

Chancellor and Director of Desert Research Institute.

He noted that the University of Nevada Faculty Senate

has asked that consideration be temporarily postponed so

that the two Faculty Senates might have sufficient time

for review of the proposals. Mr. Humphrey said that

the present schedule anticipates brining this matter

back to the Board at the April meeting, if possible.



Mr. Humphrey further noted that a draft statement has

been prepared concerning a recommendation for further

definition of the duties and responsibilities of the

Chancellor and Presidents and hopefully will be brought

to the Board also at the April meeting.



16. Nevada Technical Institute



President Miller introduced Mr. Harry Wolf, Director of the

Nevada Technical Institute, who presented a report on the

2-year Associate Degree programs. Dr. Wolf stated that

presently 2-year programs are offered by the College of

Agriculture: Agricultural Aviation, Agricultural Mechanics,

Agricultural Sales, Farm and Ranch Management, and Parks

and Turf Management; College of Business Administration:

Secretarial Science; School of Home Economics: Pre-Kinder-

garten Training, Food Service Management and Fashion Trades.

The Nevada Technical Institute offers programs in Electron-

ics, Engineering Design, Law Enforcement and X-Ray Tech-

nology.



Mr. Wolf stated that there are 57 students enrolled in the

2-year programs offered by the College of Agriculture, 52

in the College of Business Administration, 49 in the School

of Home Economics, and 126 in the Nevada Technical Insti-

tute, all taking 12 or more credit hours for a total of

268 full time students.



Mr. Wolf continued by introducing his staff and showing

slides of some of the activities of the institute and of

its students. Following his presentation, the Regents

toured the Sage building, now occupied by the Desert

Research Institute, and the facilities being used by the

General University Extension and the Nevada Technical

Institute.



17. Review of Final Plans for Physical Science Complex

(Chemistry), University of Nevada



Mr. Pine presented and reviewed for the Board of Regents

the final plans for the Chemistry portion of the Physical

Science Complex. Mr. Hancock stated in reviewing the

extensive amount of work involved in this project that

Dr. Cyrus Guss should be commended for his excellent

cooperation in the planning phase. Mr. Hancock stated

that in his opinion Dr. Guss has done an outstanding job

and his contribution was significant. Mr. Pine recommend-

ed that the final plans be approved, subject to a satis-

factory check by the State Planning Board Staff.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



18. Incorporation of University of Nevada Property into City

of Reno



Mr. Pine noted that the northern part of the University of

Nevada Campus and all of the Stead Campus have been outside

the City limits. He stated that there are numerous ad-

vantages to the University to be within the City limits and

recommended that the State Planning Board and the City of

Reno be notified that the University desires to have both

Campuses within the City limits. Mr. Humphrey concurred

in the recommendation and requested approval.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



19. Requested Variance on Property Near Nevada Southern

University



Mr. Humphrey requested President Moyer to review the prob-

lems concerned with the requested variance. Dr. Moyer

stated that the Clark County Planning Commission had re-

ceived a request for a variance to construct more than

the authorized number of apartments on property adjacent

to the Nevada Southern University Campus. Dr. Moyer stated

that in response to request by NSU to defer action, the

Planning Commission informed them that the property was

already zoned R4 and approval to build apartments was grant-

ed in 1960. Therefore, it is only a question of a variance

at this point. The variance was approved by the Planning

Commission with final approval to be considered by the

Clark County Commissioners at their meeting on March 20.



Dr. Moyer pointed out that the property on which the

variance is sought is within the area already held by the

Nevada Southern Land Foundation for the future expansion

of NSU Campus and recommended that the Board of Regents

request the Clark County Commissioners to reconsider the

entire matter in light of NSU's proposed use of this land

for further Campus development. This delay might then

give the Land Foundation time to negotiate the purchase

of this and other land in that area.



In response to a question as to whether the University

might be able to acquire the property by condemnation,

Mr. Hancock stated that he has already contacted the

Attorney General's Office regarding this.



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

without dissent that the Board of Regents advise the Clark

County Commissioners that it is opposed to the approval

of this variance.



20. Capital Improvement Program, 1969-71



Mr. Humphrey noted that it is necessary to update the Uni-

versity's priority list of capital improvements for sub-

mission to the State Planning Board. He submitted 3 lists

for discussion, one for the University of Nevada prepared

by President Miller, one for Nevada Southern University

prepared by President Moyer, and an integrated list for

the University System.



Mr. Humphrey stated that the first 6 projects on the

priority list had been determined by an assumption that

the University could anticipate authorization of funding

for at least the first 6 projects, although he indicated

that the Administration hopes that the State Legislature

will provide funding for more. He recommended that the

list be approved at this time, subject to revision below

priority number 6 in developing the Ten Year Budget.



There was an expression of concern that land acquisition

was placed too far down the priority list. Dr. Anderson

stated that he was especially concerned that the University

of Nevada Land Development Foundation would not be active

enough in this biennium to serve as a holding company and

suggested that land acquisition for the University of

Nevada be considered for a higher priority on the System

priority list.



There was also some discussion of the serious need for

buildings at Nevada Southern and a question was asked as

to whether the Athletic Field Development was as acutely

needed as the Life Science building.



Mr. Jacobsen moved, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, that the

1969-71 Capital Improvement Program Priority list for the

University of Nevada System be adopted with the following

amendments:



Land Acquisition, U. N., originally #15, be moved

to Priority #7.



Life Science Building, N. S. U., originally #12, be

moved to Priority #8.



Athletic Field Development, originally #7, be moved

to Priority #9.



Campus Lighting, Phase 1, N. S. U., originally #8,

be moved to Priority #10.



Lecture-Demonstration Building, (Social Science

Building), U. N., originally #9, be moved to Priority

#11.



Lighting System, Church Fine Arts, U. N., originally

#10, be moved to Priority #12.



Physical Education Facility, U. N., originally #11,

be moved to Priority #13.



Humanities Building, N. S. U., originally #13, be

moved to Priority #14.



Addition to Getchell Library, U. N., originally #14,

be moved to Priority #15.



Land Acquisition, N. S. U., to remain at Priority #16.



The amended Priority List for the University of Nevada

System is as follows:



1969-71 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

SYSTEM PRIORITY LIST

Dr. Lombardi suggested that some thought be given to

dedication of a portion of out-of-state tuition revenues

for the purpose of financing capital improvements. Mr.

Humphrey suggested that it would be timely to schedule

this discussion during the Summer as part of the discus-

sion on Ten Year Budgets.



21. Stead Campus Survey



Mr. Pine reported that the survey of the Stead Campus,

authorized by the Board at an earlier meeting, has now been

completed. Mr. Pine requested that the Chancellor be

authorized to make application to the Federal government

for the transfer of 378.799 acres of land as shown on the

survey.



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

without dissent that the Chancellor be so authorized.



22. Location of Chancellor's Office



Mr. Humphrey recommended that in order to further the recog-

nition of the Chancellor as a System Officer, that he, his

immediate staff, the Institutional Studies Office and the

Budget Office be moved off Campus. As a secondary consider-

ation, Mr. Humphrey pointed out that his staff is now locat-

ed in 3 difference offices, in 2 buildings, causing in-

efficient use of staff time. Mr. Humphrey estimated that

approximately 1500 sq. feet would be required to consoli-

date the Chancellor's staff, whereas approximately 2600

sq. feet would be released to the University of Nevada.



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

unanimously that the Chancellor's Office be moved from the

Campus of the University of Nevada to downtown Reno.



Mr. Humphrey noted that several locations had been investi-

gated as being possibilities for housing the Chancellor's

Office. Among those investigated were First National Bank,

Arlington Towers, Stead Campus, Universe Life building and

the Clay Peters building. Mr. Humphrey recommended that

the Administration be authorized to enter into a lease

with Arlington Towers for approximately 1500 sq. feet at

an annual rate of approximately $9000.



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

ried unanimously that the Chancellor's Office be moved to

Arlington Towers and that the Administration be authorized

to lease approximately 1500 square feet at an estimated

annual rate of approximately $9000 plus moving costs.



23. Estimative Budgets for 1968 Summer Programs



Mr. Humphrey recommended approval of the Estimative Budgets

for Coaching Camp (Day), High School Journalism Institute,

Tahoe Art Camp, and Coaching Camp (Residence), as trans-

mitted with the agenda. (Budgets are filed with permanent

minutes.)



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

without dissent that the Estimative Budgets for the 1968

Summer Programs be approved as submitted.



24. Medical School Feasibility Study



Mr. Humphrey noted that the Legislative resolution pro-

posed to rescind the 1967 Legislative resolution concerning

a medical school feasibility study failed to pass and noted

that, therefore, the University's legal position is the

same as before the rescinding resolution was introduced.



Dr. Miller added that the feasibility study is continuing

and in light of the legislative concern, he felt it would

be helpful to the staff to have a reaffirmation of the

Regents intention to continue, and also stated that this

reaffirmation would be most beneficial in seeking planning

money.



Mr. Humphrey recommended that the medical school feasi-

bility study continue with the objective of presenting

a report to the Board of Regents in December, 1968, and

transmitting that report to the 1969 Session of the Legis-

lature. In making this recommendation, Mr. Humphrey

pointed out that funds have not yet been allocated by

the Board of Regents for the continuation of this study

and that should the present planning grant applications

not be productive prior to May 30, a further decision

concerning financing of the feasibility study will be

necessary.



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

without dissent that the medical school feasibility study

continue with the objective of presenting the report to

the Board of Regents at the end of the year.



25. Administration of English A



Mr. Humphrey noted that English A is presently administered

at both N. S. U. and U. N. by General University Extension.

He recommended that effective July 1, 1968, this program

be administered at each institution by the English Depart-

ments. He also recommended that the $54 registration fee

for English A be deposited in a special fund on each

Campus and the teaching and administrative costs continue

to be paid from that fund. He specified that no charges

would be made against this fund except for this purpose

and that if a surplus accumulates in the fund, it will

be expended only for the improvement of instruction of

English A on each Campus.



President Miller stated that the recommendation under

consideration was simply an administrative change and

does not get at the problem of English A. A study is

now underway on the U. N. Campus and it is presently

planned to bring additional information to the Board

but that additional time was required before doing so.



President Moyer stated that there is an Ad Hoc Committee

in Clark County (consisting of University and public

school personnel) who are trying to find a way to elimi-

nate English A.



Mr. Humphrey stated that it appears that further discussion

of this matter could be scheduled in April, or no later

than May.



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

without dissent that the recommendation concerning the

change in administration of English A be approved.



26. Chancellor's Report



(a) Regents' Policy Manual - Mr. Humphrey stated that

Mr. Grant Davis has indicated that he will have the

first draft of the Policy Manual dictated by the

first of the week of March 11. Transcription of

the draft would be assigned priority status and as

soon as the draft has received its initial editing,

it will be returned for typing so that a copy might

be distributed to the Board by the end of the month.



(b) Change in Rate for Instructional Services for Cor-

respondence Study Lessons - Mr. Humphrey submitted

a request from General University Extension that the

rate for instructional services for correspondence

study lessons be increased as follows:



(1) The rates for corrections of lessons be increased

so that the rate for lessons returned within 7

days be raised from $1.10 to $1.30; and lessons

returned after 7 days be raised from $1.00 to

$1.05.



(2) The rate for writing course syllabi be increased

from $50 per credit hour to a sliding scale of

$50-75 depending on the development of the

course syllabus.



(3) The rate for revising course syllabi be in-

creased from a sliding scale of $5-25 per credit

hour to $5-35 per credit hour depending on the

extent of the revisions.



Mr. Humphrey noted that this request for increase in

rates had been endorsed by Acting Dean Robert Gorrell

and he recommended approval, effective April 1, 1968.



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

carried without dissent that the rate changes be

approved as requested.



(c) Capital Improvement Fee Funds - Mr. Humphrey submitted

for the information of the members of the Board, in

response to a request from Mr. Archie Grant, a recap

of the activity in the capital improvement fee funds

from July 1, 1966 through February 9, 1968. He noted

that certain of these transactions represented inter-

fund loans rather than expenditures, specifically,

the remodeling of the Post Office and the schematics

for the Animal Science Research Facility for the

University of Nevada, and the N. S. U. Campus Union

at Nevada Southern. (Recap filed in permanent min-

utes.)



(d) Bond Resolutions, Chemistry Building, NSU - Mr.

Humphrey requested that the Board of Regents authorize

the Administration to advertise and to receive bids

on April 13, 1968 for the revenue bonds for the

Chemistry building at Nevada Southern. He noted that

if the meeting date can be changed to April 6, the

bids would be advertised accordingly.



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

carried without dissent that the Administration be

so authorized and that the following resolutions

be adopted to provide for the issuance of the revenue

bonds and for their public sale, with the provision

that the date of the next Board meeting be changed if

feasible; otherwise, the date of April 13 be used.
