                         Reno, Nevada
                        April 1, 1911

The Board of Regents met at 2:30 o'clock P.M. Saturday, April
1, 1911.  Present:  Regents Codd, Williams, O'Brien, Reid and
President Stubbs.  Absent:  Regent Henderson.

Upon motion of Dr. Reid, seconded by Regent O'Brien, the note
on page 237 with reference to the Historical Society site upon
the Campus was ordered stricken from the minutes.  With this
correction, the minutes of all meetings from January 2, 1911
were approved as read.

President Stubbs read his report as follows:

                                     April 1, 1911

To the Honorable
The Board of Regents
    of the University of Nevada

Gentlemen:

I have the honor to make the report of the University for the
three months ending March 31, 1911.

I have submitted to the Board of Regents the Payroll and Claims
from the Agricultural and Mechanical College Fund as follows:

    Salary roll, faculty                    $2706.00
    Claims                                   1065.58
        Total                               $3771.58

The balance sheet shows in the Agricultural and Mechanical
College Fund $12,098.34; subtracting the claim and payrolls
submitted leaves $8,326.76.  We can pay the salaries for the
rest of this fiscal year, amounting to $7118.00, and this will
leave us $1208.76 with which to pay claims.  This means that
we will close up this fiscal year entirely free from debt so
far as the Agricultural and Mechanical College Fund is concerned.

                      State Fund

According to a telegram received from Fred L. White, Assemblyman
from Washoe County, the Legislature gave us $209,130 under the
general appropriations and passed the Electrical Building and
Equipment Bill for $40,000, which the Governor signed.  We are
indebted to Assemblyman White and some other good friends who
insisted upon the University appropriation of $214,120 and they
succeeded, according to his telegram, in getting the full amount
of the appropriation, excepting $5000.

At one time it looked as if the Ways and Means Committee would
cut our general appropriation bill about $50,000, and it is very
gratifying to know that wiser counsel prevailed and they gave us
about everything we asked for in the way of general appropria-
tions.  From conversation with Mr. White it seems that the fail-
ings of the Senate and Assembly largely arose through ignorance
of what the State really needed.  The general appropriation for
the University according to Mr. White's telegram is as follows:

    Section  95, for support of Departments $172,130
    Section  98, for purchase of stock         5,000
    Section  99, for improvements of grounds  10,000
    Section 100, for Hygienic Laboratory      10,000
    Section 101, for Food and Drug Control    12,000
        Total                               $209,130

It is to be noted that in the support for Departments I included
$20,000 for the College of Education.

                   State Payrolls and Claims

The State Payroll for the month of March for the faculty is
$3,401.04; for the students is $284.75.  The State claims for
the month of March amount to $10,672.40 as follows (with an
additional $540):

    Claims

        Library                             $   420.48
        Pure Food and Drugs                     871.43
        Miscellaneous                           907.29
        State Hygienic Laboratory               382.16
        Buildings and Grounds                 3,731.87
        High School                              38.78
        Administration                        1,593.41
        Insurance                             2,514.00
        M & M Building Equipment                745.78
        Greenhouse                                2.20
                                            $11,212.40

    Payrolls

        State Hygienic Laboratory           $   301.00
        Pure Food and Drug                      266.68
        High School                             855.34
        Mackay Mining School                    400.00

                         Lawn Mower

The question of a suitable lawn mower to take care of our lawns
is now under consideration.  We can get a good horse lawn mower
from $200 to $300.  We can get a good gasoline motor lawn mower
from Champaign Bros. for $600 net f. o. b. cars Ithaca, or, we
can get a better gasoline motor lawn mower for $1300 f. o. b.
cars Newburg, New York.  I would like to do away with horse
power as soon as possible.  The $1300 motor lawn mower from
Champaign Bros. seems to be a very good lawn mower, and it seems
to me it would be wise for us to buy this lawn mower for $600
plus the freight from Ithaca, N. Y. to Reno.  I submit the
questions to the Board.

                         Cash Payments

The Regents doubtless are aware that there are some claims that
the University must pay for immediately, such as freight express
and advances for traveling, etc.  We have provided for these
payments by a system of orders on Mr. Taylor which he has car-
ried and then presented to the Board of Regents for payment.
This is a great burden which should not be placed either on the
Washoe County Bank nor upon Mr. Taylor.  After conversation with
Mr. Taylor, I submit the following:

That the Regents by resolution authorize the President of the
University and the Secretary of the Board of Regents to sign a
note for the University of Nevada, borrowing an amount sufficient
to pay these bills for freight, expressage and advance for labor
and traveling expenses for the Pure Food and Drug work, the State
Hygienic Laboratory work, and the Adams Fund work, so that the
President's Office may pay these bills as they occur and then
segregate them and put the amount up to the Board of Regents for
approval at the end of the month, and pay the amount upon the
note.

                  Recommendation for Graduation

I herewith recommend for graduation the following students:

    Marion Henry Foss, for the degree of Bachelor of Science
        in Mining Engineering

    Claude Henry Heise, for the degree of Bachelor of Science
        in Mining Engineering

    Louis Selwyn Leavitt, for the degree of Bachelor of Science
        in Mechanical Engineering

These students completed their work at the close of the Fall
semester and have been recommended to me for graduation by the
Committees on Registration and Graduation and Theses.

                        The Land Show

We made, on behalf of the University, an exhibit at the Pacific
Land and Livestock Show at Los Angeles, which occurred from the
9th to the 31st of March.  This exhibit was in charge of Mr.
Peterson, who, besides gave two illustrated lectures on Nevada.
From all that we have heard the exhibit from the University and
from Clark County, Nevada, was very good and excited a great
deal of interest on the part of the visitors.

                    Inspection of Cadets

The inspection of the Cadet Corps will occur on Tuesday, May 2nd.
The inspecting officer is Captain H. L. Laubach.

                 University of Nevada Bulletin

January 1, 1911, No. 1 of Vol. V of the University of Nevada
Studies was issued.  The title of the Bulletin is "The Identity
of the Child in Virgil's POLLIO: An Afterward" by Dr. J. E.
Church, Jr.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                             J. E. Stubbs
                             President

Upon motion of Regent Williams, seconded by Dr. Reid, the Presi-
dent was authorized to purchase through a Nevada dealer a new
horse lawn mower.

Upon motion of Dr. Reid, seconded by Regent Williams, the rec-
ommendation of the President with regard to the three students
named in his report was approved, and their degrees ordered
conferred upon them.

The President read a letter which he had written to Mrs. Edward
H. Harriman, asking her to purchase a farm and give it to the
University.  The Regents approved of this letter.

The salary of Professor Sawvell was made $100 per month from
January 1, 1911, and that of Miss Edith Howe $75 per month from
January 1, 1911.

The following is a list of the claims allowed:
