      3.  Resolution for Governor Laxalt



          The Committee reviewed the legislation proposed by the

          Senate concerning the University (SJR 17 and SJR 20)

          and submitted the following resolution with a recom-

          mendation that it be adopted by the Board of Regents:



          "The Board of Regents of the University of Nevada

          wishes to express its deep appreciation of the action

          of the Governor in supporting the University against

          the extremely detrimental legislation proposed in SJR

          17 and now exists and which would destroy the quality

          of the University.  We hereby express our deep grati-

          tude to Governor Laxalt for his concern for higher

          education and for academic freedom in our State Univer-

          sity of Nevada."



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

     unanimously that the recommendation of the Committee be

     approved by the Board.



      4.  State Participation in Payment of Group Insurance

          Health Premiums



          The Committee reviewed resolutions of the University

          Council, Reno Campus, and NSU Senate requesting addi-

          tional participation by the State in the payment of

          premiums for group health insurance.  In view of the

          fact that the Governor's budget request includes a

          recommendation that State participation be increased

          from the present $3 to $6, Mr. Jacobsen moved and Dr.

          White seconded that the Committee recommend to the

          Board that, contingent upon the appropriation by the

          Legislature of sufficient funds, the University's

          participation be increased accordingly.



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

     unanimously that the recommendation of the Committee be

     approved by the Board.



      5.  Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5,000



          In accordance with Board of Regents policy that all

          purchases in excess of $5,000 be first approved by the

          Board, the following proposed purchases were presented

          to the Committee for consideration:



          (1)  The Chemistry Department, College of Arts and

               Science, has requested the purchase of a Beckman

               Spectrophotometer and a Pneumatic Air Dryer.  The

               total cost, including a 10% educational discount,

               is $19,944.  Perkin-Elmer Corporation has

               comparable instruments at $19,890.  The Chemistry

               Department has requested the Beckman Instruments

               Co. for service and availability of parts and sup-

               plies.  The State Purchasing Division is willing

               to honor the request for this specific make, and

               the order would be placed with Beckman

               Instruments who sells only direct.



          (2)  The Physics Department, College of Arts and

               Science, has requested the purchase of a Brush

               Instruments Division recorder and accessories

               which total $5,385.  The Physics Department has

               stated that similar equipment is unacceptable.

               The State Purchasing Division is willing to honor

               this request, and the order would be placed with

               Brush Instruments who sells only direct.



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

          without dissent that the Committee recommend to the

          Board the approval of the above purchases.



     Mr. Humphrey submitted as information to the Committee the

     fact that the State Planning Board awarded on February 24

     to Lee Office Equipment in Las Vegas a contract to furnish

     the NSU Library with Herman-Miller furniture.  Lee Office

     Equipment bid $91,554.40 with delivery to be 10 to 12 weeks;

     the only other bidder was Morrill and Machabee of Reno with

     a bid of $94,204.94 with delivery in 12 weeks.



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

     without dissenting vote that the Regents endorse the award

     of this contract by the State Planning Board.



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

     roll call vote that the action of the Committee be ap-

     proved by the Board.



      6.  Computer Proposal for NSU



          The Committee reviewed a proposal from NSU for a co-

          operative program in Data Processing between NSU and

          the Atomic Energy Commission.  The agreement as pro-

          posed sets forth the following basic stipulations:



          (1)  NSU would install, and jointly operate and manage,

               a Data Processing Center in the Radiological

               Health Laboratory Computer Room on the NSU Campus

               under a yearly agreement for which $50,000 would

               be paid the University by the AEC for the serv-

               ices rendered its groups.



          (2)  For the amount paid under this agreement the AEC

               groups would be entitled to a minimum of 176 hours

               of computer time a month or 2,112 hours per year

               plus a fee of $25.00 per hour for time beyond this

               yearly total.  In the scheduling of this time the

               AEC groups would have first use priority on all

               equipment during a prime shift, to be determined

               from time to time by mutual agreement, with the

               balance of time on a twenty-four hour basis for

               University use as determined by the NSU Computer

               Center Director.



          (3)  The AEC groups will furnish operating personnel

               for processing of their data and Nevada Southern

               will furnish operating personnel for the process-

               ing of its data.  The Management Organization is

               set forth in the document and its further imple-

               mentation will be developed as needed.



          (4)  The IBM 1130 computer with needed peripheral

               equipment has been carefully studied and agreed

               upon by all parties concerned.  This equipment has

               been designed to serve the requirements of the AEC

               groups as well as Nevada Southern through the

               first year.  Both parties hope to begin the oper-

               ation by May 1, 1967.



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

          without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

          the Board that the agreement for a cooperative program

          in Data Processing at NSU be approved with the under-

          standing that the agreement on the part of the AEC, as

          well as on the part of IBM to furnish the equipment, is

          for a one-year period.



     Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Dr. White, carried unani-

     mously that the action of the Committee be approved by the

     Board.



      7.  Computer Proposal, Reno Campus



          The Committee reviewed a recommendation from Professor

          Mordy concerning the acquisition of a Sigma 7 Computing

          System.  Upon motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr.

          White, the Committee voted to recommend to the Board

          that the University proceed to acquire a Sigma 7

          Computing System with the understanding that the new

          system can operate without additional Fund One monies.

          It was, however, further understood that if additional

          Fund One monies become available, further consideration

          of the manner of financing the Computer Facility should

          be requested of the Board.



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

     without dissent that the recommendation of the Committee

     be approved by the Board.



      8.  A Junior College or Technical School in Elko County



          President Armstrong reviewed for the Committee a re-

          quest by the 1965 Legislature to survey the need for

          a Junior College in Elko Country.  The following

          progress report was presented for consideration by

          the Committee for possible submittal to the Legisla-

          ture:



          (1)  In 1950 the population of Elko County was 11,654

               or 7.2% of the total population of the State.

               By 1960 the population of the County had risen to

               12,011, but its proportion of total State popu-

               lation had fallen to 4.2%.  The Bureau of Busi-

               ness and Economic Research of the University of

               Nevada forecasts an increase in the population

               in Elko County by 1970 to 16,000 persons or 2.8%

               of the expected Statewide population.



          (2)  Dean Robert Weems of the College of Business Ad-

               ministration has made some projections of school-

               age population in Elko County for the Boy Scouts

               in the State.  His study showed in 1966 there were

               186 boys in grades nine and ten in Elko County.

               His projection showed by 1970 there will be 229

               boys in grades nine and ten.  His studies further

               show that population of the sexes is about equal

               so by 1970 there should be something slightly

               less than 500 boys and girls in grades nine and

               ten.



          (3)  Superintendent Robert Zander of Elko County in-

               forms us the usual graduating classes in Elko

               County numbers 225 to 230.  He further indicates

               approximately 50% of the graduating classes do

               enter some kind of post graduate school ranging

               from two-year Vocational-Tech Schools to Junior

               Colleges to four-year Colleges and Universities.

               Presently then, there is an available pool of 100

               to 125 students in Elko County for post-graduate

               work.



          (4)  Numerous studies across the country indicate that

               the minimum base for establishment of a Junior

               College is a potential of 500 students within easy

               commuting distance of the College.  From the pop-

               ulation figures which we have obtained from Elko

               County, it would appear that 1975 or 1980 would be

               the earliest reasonable dates for attaining the

               population necessary to support an adequate Junior

               College or technical institute.



          (5)  70 acres of the proposed 100 acres have already

               been given to the University.



          (6)  It would appear that active planning about the

               nature of a College in Elko County and the kind of

               program and courses which might be offered there

               together with the necessary physical plant should

               be postponed for a period of approximately 8 or 10

               years.  It would be wise, however, for those of us

               in the University concerned with the planning of

               this new Campus to keep close touch with growth

               and development of Elko County so that we can be

               prepared to accelerate this time schedule if

               necessary.



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

          without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

          the Board that a progress report be submitted to the

          Legislature containing the above six points, with the

          following two additional statements:



          (a)  A study of a future Junior College System would be

               an appropriate matter to be referred to the pro-

               posed Advisory Committee on Higher Education

               Planning and to become part of the University's

               long-range educational planning.



          (b)  Consideration should be given to the provisions of

               possible State scholarships in the interim to off-

               set the expense entailed by students who live be-

               yond commuting distance and thus must reside on

               Campuses located in Clark and Washoe Counties.



     Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with

     Dr. White abstaining, that the proposed report to the State

     Legislature be approved as recommended by the Committee.



      9.  Auxiliary Fees, Evening Division Students



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

          without dissenting vote that in view of the small

          number of students involved, the Committee recommend

          to the Board that the ASUN fee of $17.50, Student

          Union Fee of $7.50 and Health Service Fee of $8.00

          be waived for students taking 7 or more credits en-

          tirely within the Reno Evening Division.  It was

          understood that the Evening Division would be in-

          structed to keep the Administration and the Board of

          Regents informed if the number of students involved

          increased substantially.



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

     unanimously that the recommendation of the Committee be

     approved by the Board.



     10.  Leaves of Absence



          The Committee also recommended that Mrs. Beverly Funk,

          Instructor in Business Administration, NSU, be granted

          a leave of absence without pay for the academic year

          1967-68, and the leave of absence without pay for Dr.

          Lillian Overland, Desert Research Institute, be ex-

          tended from January 1 to April 1, 1967.



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

     unanimously that the recommendation of the Committee be

     approved by the Board.



     11.  Edith W. Albert Estate



          The Committee reviewed the Albert Endowment and dis-

          cussed the final settlement of the estate with the

          Office of the Attorney General.



     Report of the Committee noted.



14.  Affiliation of NSU Fraternity with National



     President Armstrong presented a request from Chancellor

     Moyer that a group of NSU men students (Sigma Gamma

     Fraternity) be allowed to affiliate with the National,

     known as Kappa Sigma Fraternity.  This would make Kappa

     Sigma the first national fraternity on the NSU Campus.
