College of Agriculture

membership, Dean Bohmont requested and Dr. Armstrong rec-

ommended that Mr. Fred Harris of Elko, Nevada, be invited

to serve.



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

unanimously that the Committee membership be approved and

that the President be authorized to issue the invitation.



9. Student Affairs Committee



Mrs. Magee presented the minutes of the meeting held on

January 29, 1964 as follows:



The Committee met in the President's home beginning at

7:30 P.M. on the above date. Present were: Regents Magee,

Chairman; Anderson (representing Mr. Jacobsen); Davis and

Hug. Also present were Dean Basta and President Armstrong.



The meeting was called to consider the matter of the pro-

posed Housemother requirement for fraternities referred to

it by the Board of Regents on January 25, 1964, with power

to act.



Dean Basta, at the request of the Chairman, reviewed the

reasons for the original recommendation made in 1962 by

the Office of Student Affairs, which led to the action of

the Board of Regents on October 6 1962, as follows:



"Each fraternity be required to have a Housemother or

a Graduate Assistant as a requirement for an approved

University residence, to become effective 1964-65."



The basic reason for this recommendation was the fact that

the acquisition of additional dormitories by the University

would make it possible to require all students, both men and

women, under the age of 21, to live in University approved

residences, including fraternities and sororities, unless

their homes were in Reno. Accordingly, it is desirable

that supervision become a requirement for all University

approved residences at this time.



Mrs. Magee reported that she had had a number of telephone

conversations with Presidents and Officers of the Frater-

nity Mothers' Clubs, and found that most of them were in

agreement with the policy of requiring adult supervision

in fraternity houses. She reported also that Mr. Swobe

had suggested a possible modification of the present policy

statement which would make optional either a qualified adult

in residence, or three alumni advisors charged with the

responsibility to supervise the fraternity.



President Armstrong pointed out that some form of adult

supervision is a protection for the fraternity against

adverse criticism.



Dean Basta reported that a recent survey made by his office

indicated that 11 of 15 western Universities have adult

supervision in fraternity houses.



Review of the letter of opinion from the Office of the

Attorney General concerning the University's responsibil-

ities in loco parentis confirms the fact that while the

University undoubtedly has a moral and ethical responsi-

bility to take all reasonable precautions for the health

and welfare of its students, it does not have a legal

responsibility in this regard for students living in fra-

ternity houses.



After further discussion it was agreed that the fraterni-

ties should be given an opportunity to demonstrate their

ability to provide adequate supervision in their houses

under a somewhat modified plan, to be effective this Fall.

Then, at such time as the completion of the scheduled

dormitory makes it possible for the University to require

all students under the age of 21 to live in University sup-

ervised residences, we can re-examine the matter to deter-

mine how successfully the fraternities have carried out

this responsibility.



On motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Dr. Anderson, the fol-

lowing policy statement was unanimously approved by the

Committee:



"The fraternities and the University share a mutual

concern for the health, safety, and welfare of student

fraternity members. We recognize and commend the

mature and responsible attitudes already amply demon-

strated by our fraternities, both through undergradu-

ate and alumni members. Accordingly, we readily accept

the offered cooperation and self-regulation by our

fraternities, and propose to extend to them the op-

portunity to continue to demonstrate the ability to

provide the necessary supervision of their own houses

for our mutual benefit.



"Accordingly, exercising the authority delegated to

this Committee by the Board of Regents at its meeting

on January 25, 1964, we hereby modify the action of

the Board of Regents taken on October 6, 1962, whereby

each fraternity is to be required 'to have a House-

mother or a Graduate Assistant as a requirement for

an approved University resident, to become effective

1964-65', as follows:



"Effective with the beginning of the Fall semester

1964-65, and thereafter,



(1) Any fraternity, in order to be approved by the

University of Nevada as a University residence,

shall provide adult supervision within its prem-

ises mutually acceptable to the Office of Student

Affairs and the fraternity consisting of:



(a) A qualified adult residing in the fraternity

house; or



(b) A group of alumni, not less than three, ap-

pointed by the Fraternity Alumni Associa-

tion.



(2) Such supervision shall be conducted pursuant to

rules and regulations prescribed by the Office

of Student Affairs."



It was agreed that the Presidents of the Interfraternity

Councils, both undergraduate and alumni, and appropriate

Officers, undergraduate and alumni, of each of the fra-

ternities, shall be immediately notified of this statement

of policy.



Meeting adjourned at 9:15 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



Charles J. Armstrong

Acting Secretary



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

unanimously to accept the minutes as presented.



10. Building Committee Meeting, February 24, 1964



Dr. Anderson discussed the minutes as follows:



Dr. Anderson called the meeting to order at 8:05 P.M. in the

Tahoe Room of the Jot Travis building.



Regents present were: Dr. Anderson, Dr. Lombardi, Mr. Hug

and Mr. Jacobsen. University staff present were: Mr.

Humphrey and Mr. Rogers. Architects' representatives were:

Mr. Selden and Mr. Henderson of the firm of Selden and

Stewart.



(1) Dormitory - Cemetery Area



The preliminary plans for the 8-story Dormitory were

presented by Mr. Selden. He answered questions of the

Board. The Regents were particularly concerned with

the esthetic qualities of the building and were assured

by Mr. Selden that it would be a compatible building

with the general area. He explained that they had

picked up the brick and the lines of the White Pine

Hall on the exterior of the new Dormitory. It was

determined to place the necessary conduit in the

structure so that at a later date a decision could be

made as to the occupancy of the building, and thereby

the necessary signalling devices could be installed.

The preliminary plans show rooms for 560 students.

Mr. Selden stated that the construction budget was

tight. After considerable discussion a motion was

made by Mr. Jacobsen and seconded by Dr. Lombardi,

which passed unanimously that the preliminary plans

as presented be approved.



Regent Ray Germain was not present, but in a telephone

conversation Mr. Rogers was assured that he was in

favor of the approval of the preliminary plans.



(2) Purchase of Adjacent Lane



Mr. Rogers reported to the Committee that occasionally

people have contacted the University requesting infor-

mation as to the possibility of the University purchas-

ing their property. Since some of the property is

located in an area shown to be acquired to implement

the Master Plan, a policy on this matter should be re-

quested of the Board. Mr. Rogers stated that he felt

that since small sums could be obligated for the pur-

chase of such property, and that by purchasing small

parcels in various blocks of the area to be obtained

to implement the Master Plan, that the possibility of

a land developer utilizing the property would be les-

sened. Some housing could be made available on a

short-term basis to new faculty members when they

arrive in the area. If houses were available they

could have the first year to become acquainted with

the area and possibly make a better arrangement for

rental or purchase of housing. The Regents desire to

discuss this at the next Building Committee meeting.



(3) Widening North Virginia Street



There was a short discussion as to the desirability of

assisting the State Highway Department in the widening

of North Virginia Street. This matter is to be studied

and discussed at a later Building Committee meeting.



(4) Land-Use Changes - Las Vegas Campus



Mr. Rogers informed the Regents that the Clark County

Planning Commission had sent to the University a notice

of public hearing on the following:



(a) Case ZC-6-64, which is a request of the Board of

Regents that certain properties on the south side

of Flamingo Road be rezoned from R-1 to C-1 (Local

Business).



(b) Case ZC-8-64 is a request to reclassify from R-4

to R-1 some property east of Maryland Parkway and

north of Tropicana Road. This property would be

southeast of the University Campus and since the

classification was requested from R-4 to R-1,

which would be more desirable from the University

standpoint, the Regents agreed that no protest

should me made.



(c) Case ZC-9-64 is a request to reclassify from R-4

to C-2 (General Commercial), that property start-

ing 288 feet north of Tropicana Road on the east

side of Maryland Parkway and at a depth of 300

feet. This property also is located southeast of

the Campus and is not directly across Maryland

Parkway from the Campus. After examination of

those things allowed C-2 (Commercial), the Regents

agreed that this land change should not be pro-

tested.



Meeting adjourned at 11:05 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



James D. Rogers

University Engineer



Dr. Anderson asked for any discussion on item (1) Dormitory-

Cemetery area. Mr. Hancock reported that the northern group

of the Planning Board had approved the preliminary plans

subject to study of four items: mechanical ventilation,

sidewalk pattern, roof treatment on the lounge, and interior

decor of the individual rooms. Dr. Anderson discussed the

possibility of design to permit use of the lounge area for

classrooms if needed. It was pointed out that such arrange-

ment might be used for classes for closed circuit televi-

sion. No action was taken.



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

unanimously to approve the preliminary plans, as recommend-

ed by the Building Committee.



Item (2) on Purchase of Adjacent Land was held over until

the next meeting of the Building Committee, as noted in the

minutes.



Item (3) Widening North Virginia Street was discussed. Mr.

Hancock pointed out that the Stadium plans include two high-

way connections and that the Planning Board advises the

widening of Virginia Street, as well as that it be abandoned

as a highway. The Roads and Streets Master Plan also shows

it as a collector. However, a meeting with Highway person-

nel brought no definite information. There being no objec-

tion, the Chairman referred the matter back to the Building

Committee for conference with the Planning Board and Highway

Officials, to be presented to the Regents for consideration

at their next meeting.



Referring to item (4) Land-Use Changes, Las Vegas, case ZC-

6-64 ((a) in minutes) action was postponed until a meeting

can be arranged with Clark County Commissioners and the

County Planning Commissioners. It was agreed to try to

set such a meeting in Las Vegas at noon on April 25, the

date on which the Board of Regents will be meeting there.

(b) and (c) were discussed and no change desired in the

Building Committee's recommendations.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unani-

mously to approve the minutes and to adopt the recommenda-

tions in the minutes of the Building Committee meeting of

February 24, 1964, with the amendment that the meeting be

arranged as called for in item (3) Widening of North Virgin-

ia Street. Mr. Hancock was asked to arrange the meeting.



The meeting recessed at 11:50 A.M. for a tour of Newlands Field

Station Experiment Farm and for luncheon. The recessed meeting

was called to order by the Chairman at 2:40 P.M.



11. Building Committee Meeting of March 27, 1964



Minutes of the meeting were presented by Dr. Anderson as

follows:



Dr. Anderson called the meeting to order at 3:00 P.M., in

(2) Property Purchase Policy



Present Armstrong reported that the Attorney General

has expressed some reservations regarding the Univer-

sity's legal authority to acquire real property.

Therefore, he recommended that the Committee take

under advisement the written proposal on Property

Purchase Policy, which was distributed to Committee

members. The Committee agreed to postpone considera-

tion of this matter.



(3) Anelli Property, Reno



President Armstrong distributed a progress report on

the actions taken to date regarding the possible pur-

chase of the Anelli property north of the Reno Campus.



Action: Mr. Jacobsen moved, Dr. Lombardi, seconded,

that the Committee recommend: (1) that the Univer-

sity wait for an opinion from the Attorney General

and, if favorable, to proceed by purchasing an option

from the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund, (2)

if the opinion is unfavorable, the Administration be

authorized to determine if a friend of the University

would option the Anelli property and hold it for the

University, (3) if this is not possible, the sellers

be informed that the University cannot enter into an

agreement. The motion passed.



(4) The Herman Property, Reno



President Armstrong distributed copies on an offer

from Mrs. Mariana Herman to sell to the University

the Rancho San Rafael property northwest of the Reno

Campus. The Committee asked President Armstrong to

have his staff pursue this offer to determine if any

action can be taken.



(5) Radiological Health Facility, Las Vegas



President Armstrong presented a written report on

negotiations with the Federal government regarding

lease of the Radiological Health Facility on the

Nevada Southern Campus at Las Vegas.



Action: Mr. Germain moved, Mr. Jacobsen seconded,

that the Committee recommend Board approval of the

President's recommendations as follows:



(1) The Board of Regents (in Committee) authorize

acceptance of Government's $284,700 - $50,000

proposal if the following offer (#2) is rejected

by the Government.



(2) Counter-offer to lease at $284,700 for the ten

years and $62,300 per year for the option peri-

ods. This, if accepted, would add $123,000 to

the total during the option period.



(3) That any agreement specify that the charge for

mechanical and building maintenance be subject

to re-negotiation for the option periods, such

negotiation to consider actual cost of providing

the services during the previous three year per-

iod. Should agreement not be reached between the

University and the Government the matter shall be

submitted for arbitration.



(4) The Government has (by telegram received 3-26-64)

inserted the following language in the agreement:

"Prior to issuance of the University Revenue Cer-

tificates the Government shall have the right to

approve the Certificates' interest rate. In the

event the Government considers the interest rate

excessive, this agreement shall be rendered null

and void." This should be changed to have the

second sentence read: "Any interest rate exceed-

ing four percent will render this agreement null

and void." The motion passed.



(6) Capital Improvements Program for 1965-67 Biennium



President Armstrong distributed a proposed Capital

Improvements Program for the Reno and Las Vegas Cam-

puses for 1965-67. The State Planning Board has

requested the University's recommendations by March

31, 1964. University representatives will meet with

the State Planning Board on this matter on April 24,

1964. The Committee compared the proposed program

with the forecasts contained in the Master Plan.



Action: Mr. Jacobsen moved, Mr. Germain seconded,

recommending that the priority list for Nevada South-

ern be approved as presented, except that the proposed

Dormitory addition be listed as a separate category

and assigned priority number one in that category.

The motion passed.



Action: Mr. Jacobsen moved, Dr. Lombardi seconded,

recommending that the priority list for the Reno

Campus be approved as presented, except that the

mistration building design become priority number six.

The motion passed.

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

unanimously that the Capital Improvements Program be ap-

proved to be forwarded to the State Planning Board for

consideration at its meeting on April 24, at which the

University will be represented.



Right-of-way for sewer line at the 4-H Camp at Lake Tahoe

was discussed. Mr. Rogers reviewed the situation, and

showed the Regents where the Douglas County Sewer District

desires to put the line, near the beach. He thought this

proposal would be the only way to solve the sewer problem

at the 4-H Camp. He pointed out that, in keeping with the

legislative act governing the 4-H Camp, the University can

negotiate, but the Legislature would grant the easement.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried unani-

mously that the recommendation of the Building Committee

be approved, and that the Administration be authorized to

negotiate with the Douglas County Sewer District.



Mr. Rogers reviewed item (9) Water Rights at Newlands Field

Station. By Court direction, the Field Station will pay $54

per acre now to the Truckee Carson Irrigation District which

is applied to operating cost at the rate of $4 per acre per

year until used, then the Field Station wil pay $4 per acre

per year.

mously that the recommendation of the Building Committee be

approved.

Contract has been awarded to Harker & Harker. The

Notice to Proceed was issued March 19, 1964; work is

proceeding in accordance with the contract documents.

In accordance with the request from the University

Engineer, we are investigating the possibility of in-

creasing the scope of the contract by change order to

include electrical connections to Stewart and Morrill

Halls.



(3) Physical Education Facility, Phase I, Reno Campus



Final plans for the first contract concerning earth-

work on this project were received on March 3. Plan

checking is nearly completed, and we anticipate being

able to advertise for bids for this work shortly after

April 1, 1964.



(4) Social Science Building, Nevada Southern



This office has recommended the award of contract to

J. A. Tiberti for the base bid and Alternates "A", "E",

"F", "J", "K", "L", "M", "N", "P", "S" and "S-2", for a

total contract price of $924,800. This recommendation

has been approved by the Northern Executive Committee

of the State Planning Board, and we anticipate approval

by the Nevada State Planning Board on or before April

1, 1964, at which time a contract will be executed for

the work, anticipated to be completed in approximately

15 months.



(5) Site Development, Nevada Southern



Of the appropriation of $100,000 by the 1963 Session of

the Legislature, $12,000 has been obligated subject to

State Planning Board approval for the construction of

a water line to the Dormitory area. It is anticipated

that final plans on this work will be completed by

April 6, and the project will be put out to bid prior

to April 15. In addition to this obligation, we are

reserving $8400 for the extension of the water line

from Flamingo Road to the University property line in

joint venture with the two churches. Investigations

as to the feasibility of this connection are being

studied. $52,600 has been obligated for the oustide

utilities and landscaping in relation to the Social

Science building. This work will be accomplished with

the approval of the State Planning Board by J. A.

Tiberti.

to a reanalysis of the possibility of incorporating

mechanical ventilation in the building, reanalyzing the

roof treatment on the lounge wing, circulation patterns

on the sidewalks, and restudying the decor of individ-

ual rooms. It is anticipated that the architects will

be authorized to proceed with the final working draw-

ings on or before April 1, 1964.

13. Budget Hearings



Certain of the Regents expressed a desire to meet with Deans

and other Administrators from time to time. President Arm-

strong suggested that one way in which this might be accom-

plished would be for the Deans to be invited to meet with

the Regents to discuss their budget requests. There was

general agreement that this be done.



14. Regulations and Salary Committee

March 27, and went over the draft of the by-laws and regula-

President Armstrong discussed his proposal for reorganiza-

tion of the Administration of the University, as follows:



Regents

Division Adminstr

Faculty Dean/Staff



Recommendation: At present the President has 16 Administra-

tive Officers reporting directly to him. I believe that in

the interests of greater efficiency and of providing needed

opportunity for the President to devote more time to the

increasing demands of external affairs, we should implement

the recommendations of the Educational Planning Committee,

page 23, and create the administrative structure described

above. This will also give recognition and greater auton-

omy to the Las Vegas Campus, since the Chancellor would

perform many of the present duties of the President. I rec-

ommend that the Board authorize this reorganization to be

effective during the coming year, as soon as Finance should

become effective as of July 1, 1964. For the Chancellor

positions, I propose to request the University Council,

Reno, to appoint or elect a faculty committee advisory to

me on the screening and selection of candidates for the

Reno position, and for the Las Vegas position, a similar

faculty advisory committee through the Division Council at

Nevada Southern.



Mr. Hug recommended on behalf of the Committee on Regula-

tions and Salaries that the plan be approved.



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

unanimously that the reorganization plan be approved.



16. Resolution Re: W. Scott Hill Gift



Dr. Armstrong explained that it is a requirement of the

First National Bank that formal resolution be adopted by

the Board of Regents prior to sale of stock for the Univer-

sity. To carry out the wishes of W. Scott Hill, President

Armstrong recommended adoption of the following resolution:



RESOLUTION #64-3



Adopted by the Board of Regents, University of Nevada

at a meeting held March 28, 1964, at Fallon Nevada.



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada owns 13 shares of

common stock in the General Electric Company; and



WHEREAS, this stock was a gift from W. Scott Hill,

Lyons Plains Road, Weston, Connecticut, for the Library

Book Fund.



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED:



That the Board of Regents, University of Nevada, does

hereby authorize President Charles J. Armstrong to sell

the 13 shares of common stock in the General Electric

Company, to sign the necessary stock power and to de-

posit the proceeds of the sale in the Book Fund (1-51-

4001).



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unanimous-

ly that the Resolution #64-3 be adopted.



17. Housing and Home Finance Agency Projects



Mr. Humphrey discussed the following resolutions, recommend-

ed by President Armstrong, in connection with construction

of Dining and Dormitory facilities:



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

unanimously that Resolution #64-4 be adopted as follows:



RESOLUTION #64-4

RESOLUTION APPROVING LOAN AGREEMENT



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada has heretofore filed

with the United States of America an application for a

loan to provide construction of a Dormitory to house

approximately 60 men and women students and Dining

facilities to accommodate approximately 150 persons,

together with necessary appurtenant facilities for each

building, at the Las Vegas Campus of the University of

Nevada, located near Las Vegas, Nevada (CH-Nev-7(DS)),

and the United States of America, acting by and through

the Housing and Home Finance Administrator, has tenta-

tively offered to make the requested loan and has trans-

mitted for consideration a proposed Loan Agreement; and



WHEREAS, said Loan Agreement has been duly read in open

meeting of the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada, fully considered in accordance with all pertin-

ent rules of procedure and legal requirements, and made

a part of the records of said Board of Regents; and



WHEREAS, it is deemed advisable and in the public in-

terest that said Loan Agreement be approved and its

execution authorized;



NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved by the Board of Regents

of the University of Nevada that said Loan Agreement

be and the same hereby is approved without reservation

or qualification.



BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that A. C. Grant, the Chairman of

the Board of Regents of the University of Nevada, be and

he is hereby authorized to execute said Loan Agreement,

and Alice Terry, the Secretary thereof, be and she is

hereby authorized to attest the execution of said Loan

Agreement.



Mr. Humphrey discussed the situation concerning construction

of the Dormitory in Reno. The proposed Dormitory will not

produce sufficient revenue from room rental to retire the

$2,400,000 debt. These students will, however, eat in the

Dining Commons and profits from that operation could be

cross-pledged for the Dormitory Revenue Certificate. This

had the approval of HHFA. However Dawson, Nagel, Sherman

& Howard, bonding attorneys, contend that the 1963 legis-

lation, as amended by the 1964 session, does not provide

for cross-pledging, and they propose that the 1965 session

be asked to clarify the legislation in this regard. Dr.

Armstrong recommended that the Regents approve the resolu-

tion, and that the Attorney General's Office check with the

bonding attorneys in Denver as to procedure.



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

unanimously that Resolution #64-5 be approved as follows,

and that the procedure outlined for clarifying the situa-

tion with Dawson, Nagel, Sherman & Howard be approved.



RESOLUTION #64-5

RESOLUTION APPROVING LOAN AGREEMENT



WHEREAS, the University of Nevada has heretofore filed

with the United States of America an application for a

loan to provide construction of Dormitory facilities

to house approximately 280 men students and approxi-

mately 280 women students, together with necessary

appurtenant facilities, at the University of Nevada,

Reno, Nevada (CH-Nev-6(D)), and the United States of

America, acting by and through the Housing and Home

Finance Administrator, has tentatively offered to make

the requested loan and has transmitted for considera-

tion a proposed Loan Agreement; and



WHEREAS, said Loan Agreement has been duly read in open

meeting of the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada, fully considered in accordance with all per-

tinent rules of procedure and legal requirements, and

made a part of the records of said Board of Regents; and



WHEREAS, it is deemed advisable and in the public inter-

est that said Loan Agreement is approved and its execu-

tion authorized;



NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved by the Board of Regents

of the University of Nevada that said Loan Agreement be

and the same hereby is approved without reservation or

qualification.



BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that A. C. Grant, the Chairman

of the Board of Regents of the University of Nevada, be

and is hereby authorized to execute said Loan Agreement,

and Alice Terry, the Secretary thereof, be and she is

hereby authorized to attest the execution of said Loan

Agreement.



18. Honorary Degrees and Distinguished Nevadan Awards



Mrs. Magee, Chairman, presented the recommendations of the

Committee as follows, and President Armstrong recommended

approval by the Board.



It was decided at the meeting of the Committee for Dis-

tinguished Nevadan Awards and Honorary Degrees held on

March 27, 1964, that recipients of these awards and degrees

would be announced at both the Reno and Las Vegas Commence-

ment ceremonies. Recipients could receive their awards or

degrees at either Campus.



It was also decided to make the pre-commencement dinner for

recipients of these awards and degrees and members of their

immediate families an annual event, to be considered part

of the regular commencement program.



The following persons have been chosen:



HONORARY DEGREES



Governor Grant Sawyer

Franklin C. Wartman

E. L. Cord (did not accept)



DISTINGUISHED NEVADAN AWARDS

Richard T. Barrington

Dr. Mary Fulstone

Robert B. Griffith

Ralph Willard Lattin



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

unanimously that the recommendations of the Committee on

Honorary Degrees and Distinguished Nevadan Awards be ap-

proved.



19. Library, Extra Help



President Armstrong presented the request of Mr. Heron for

extra help for the Library for the period July 1, 1964 to

June 30, 1965, in view of the Fleischmann Matching Book

Fund Grant. He pointed out that the ordering and processing

cost of each volume received by the Library is approximately

$6.50 as based on their 1962-63 experience. Dr. Armstrong

requested authority to transfer $4,096 from Alice Dimmitt

Endowment Income (Account #1-51-7002) and $19,918 from

Lowell Daniels Endowment Income (Account #1-51-7003) to a

new fund in Fund Group 51 entitled "Library Special Proj-

ect".



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

unanimously that the fund transfers be approved.



20. Mirabelli & Conlon Life Insurance Agency, Inc., Agreement



This insurance firm had proposed an agreement with the Uni-

versity of Nevada for the sale of life insurance to individ-

uals naming the University of Nevada as beneficiary. The

agreement had been drafted by the Office of the Attorney

General and had received approval of the State Insurance

Commissioner. President Armstrong recommended approval of

the agreement.



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

unanimously that the agreement be approved, and that Dr.

Armstrong be authorized to sign on behalf of the Univer-

sity.



21. Nursing Survey



President Armstrong received on the previous day report and

proposals from the Nevada Public Health Association concern-

ing Nursing needs in Nevada. President Armstrong recommend-

ed that they be accepted for distribution to the Regents and

for consideration at a later meeting.



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

unanimously that the proposals be received for administra-

tive study and later consideration by the Regents.



22. Regents' Library Fund



Regent Anderson proposed that the Regents establish a fund

to be known as the Regents' Library Fund, with the expecta-

tion that each Regent would contribute $100 for purchase of

books for the Reno Campus as part of the Fleischmann Match-

ing Book Fund Drive. He felt that this would encourage

other groups and individuals to contribute. In following

years, contributions to the fund might be used to set up a

discretionary fund for the Librarian, or for other use.

There was some discussion; no action taken.



The meeting adjourned at 3:45 P.M.



The next meeting will be held in Las Vegas on Saturday, April 25,

1964.
