                 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING
                       March 19, 1938

The Executive Committee met in the President's Office at 10
o'clock Saturday, March 19th, all members being present.

Comptroller Gorman reported that a recheck of cubic yardage by
Mr. Boardman showed 609.2 cu. yds., the figures Mr. Maxwell
Wright submitted for the PWA on March 16th.

For each cubic yard, the University must furnish 6 sacks of
cement at 80 cents per sack and half a cu. yd. of sand costing
75 cents, making a total of $5.55, or $3,381.06 for cement and
sand.  Truck hire is estimated to cost the University $3,000,
giving a total of $6,381.06.

Mr. Wingfield stated that Mrs. Wingfield and he would cover the
University's share of his project, but requested that the matter
be held in confidence since he had decided to file for Regent to
succeed himself.

Chairman Ross extended to Mr. and Mrs. Wingfield the sincere ap-
preciation of the Board of Regents for this generous assistance
to the University.

Judge Brown moved that arrangements be made with the PWA to begin
work on this project immediately.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Wingfield        Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

On motion of Mr. Wingfield, the Executive Committee authorized
the purchase of a lawn mower to cost $369.65 for Superintendent
Lynch and of a typewriter for Dean Traner, cost $109.65.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Wingfield        Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

Chairman Ross, as Property Committee, reported that he was not
yet ready to make a complete report on the safety recommendations
of the Fire Chief but that he, Dean Thompson and Mr. Gorman had
gone over these recommendations and it seemed likely that most of
them could be met with a minimum of expense to the University,
aside from the proposed change of women students from Manzanita
to Artemisia Hall.  This matter would need to be gone into with
Miss Mack sitting in at the discussion.

Chairman Ross moved that the Acting President notify staff and
students that between the hours of 8 A.M. and 4 P.M. during days
the University is in session, on the paved driveway extending
north from the University gates to the intersection with the road
leading from Virginia street in front of Lincoln Hall, the Gym-
nasium and on the road on the east side of the Campus from Mor-
ril Hall to the north end of the U. S. Bureau of Mines building,
the parking of automobiles is prohibited by the Board of Regents.
In the event of fire in any University building the Reno Fire
Department would be unable to get to the building if cars are
parked on this roadway or in the vicinity of the fire plug near
the University Hospital and the U. S. Bureau of Mines building.
If chains have to be removed, the chains would delay the Fire
Department and seconds count at the beginning of a fire.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Wingfield        Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

At the request of Mr. Gorman, Judge Brown moved that during the
time the University Dining Hall is open, $25 per month from the
general funds should be transferred to the Dining Hall account to
cover board for Miss Mack and that $25 per month should be trans-
ferred from Artemisia room rent to cover the cost of Miss Loder's
board.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Wingfield        Aye
    Mr. Ross             Aye

Adjourned.

                             Silas E. Ross
                             Chairman

Carolyn M. Beckwith
Secretary

NOTE:  Without meeting, the members of the Executive Committee
rescinded their earlier action of March 16th, and, at the request
of President Clark, re-elected Dr. Charles L. Stewart to be As-
sistant Professor of History and Political Science for the year
1938-39 at no increase in pay.  This action was later confirmed
by the Regents on May 7th.
