9:30 A.M.



2. Approval of Minutes of Previous Meeting



Upon motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, the min-

utes of the previous meeting were approved as distributed.



Regent Jacobsen assumed the Chair at the request of Chairman

Anderson while Plant and Property matters were being discussed

(agenda items for Plant and Property Committee were, by agree-

ment, moved to the agenda for the regular meeting).



3. Nevada Southern University Student Activity Building



Mr. Pine reported that bids for the NSU Student Activity

building had been received on April 6 and that all bids were

above the estimate. Mr. Pine reviewed the bids with the

Board and asked that the final decision on the contract be

delayed for approximately 10 days pending a meeting with the

low bidder in an attempt to negotiate a price within the

funds available.



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

without dissent that the Plant and Property Committee be

authorized to proceed on behalf of the Board of Regents if

decision on the contract is required before the next meeting

of the Board of Regents.



4. Bids for Paving Orvis School of Nursing and Stewart Hall

Parking Lots, Reno Campus



Mr. Pine reviewed the bidding procedure followed on above

contract and recommended that the low bid of Robert L. Helms

Construction Company in the amount of $4,532.60 be accepted

and that a contract be drawn to accomplish this work.



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

roll call vote that the bid of Robert L. Helms Construction

Company, in the amount of $4,532.60, be accepted and that a

contract be drawn to accomplish the work.



5. Effie Mona Mack Social Sciences Building, Reno Campus

tially complete in June. By consensus, the Board agreed to

hold cornerstone ceremonies on Saturday afternoon, July 8,

1967.



6. Nevada Historical Society Building



Mr. Pine submitted for the Regents' approval a plot plan of

the Nevada Historical Society building site with recommenda-

tion for approval.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the plot plan as submitted be approved.



7. Easement between University of Nevada Property and Catholic

Church, 11th and Artemisia, Reno Campus



Mr. Pine presented a request from the City of Reno for a 10'

x 66' sewer line easement between the Teaching and Resource

Center and Our Lady of Wisdom Roman Catholic Church.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the above request for easement be granted.



8. Furnishing and Equipping NSU Dining Commons and Residence

Hall



Mr. Humphrey reported that the cost of furnishing the above

facility will be $168,326.81. This has been funded as

follows:



State Appropriation $ 45,000

Loan from Reno Auxiliary Enterprises 100,000

Payment from NSU Auxiliary Enterprises 19,000

$164,000



This leaves an unfunded balance of $4,326.81. Mr. Humphrey

recommended that the Board authorize a loan of this amount

to NSU Auxiliary Enterprises from Capital Improvement Fund,

NSU. (This fund had 1966-67 receipts of $67,982.12 less a

loan of $51,594.62 to NSU Auxiliary Enterprises, to pay

1966-67 debt service, leaving a current balance of

$16,387.50.)



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

without dissent that the loan be made as outlined above.



Mr. Humphrey submitted the following schedule, as recommend-

ed by Chancellor Moyer, for the repayment of the $100,000

loan made to NSU Auxiliary Enterprises from the Reno Auxil-

iary Enterprises:



1968-69 $10,000

1969-70 15,000

1970-71 20,000

1971-72 20,000

1972-73 20,000

1973-74 15,000



Mr. Humphrey also suggested that the above loan of $4,326.81

also be repaid in 1973-74.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with-

out dissent that the above schedule be established as a

target date for the repayment of the $100,000 loan from the

NSU Dining Commons and Residence Hall receipts.



9. Naming of Nevada Southern University Buildings



Mr. Ronzone submitted for the consideration of the Board,

three categories which he suggested might be selected for

naming NSU Dormitories:



The use of names of various gem stones found

in Nevada;



The use of names of trees and shrubs which

are more or less native to Southern Nevada; or



The use of names of Nevada towns.



Mr. Ronzone favored the use of names of Nevada mining towns.



Motion by Mr. Magee, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried without

dissent that the names of Nevada towns be used for NSU

Dormitories.



Specific suggestions for the name of the present Dormitory

at NSU will be made at the May meeting of the Board.



10. Draft of University Purchasing Policy



A draft of a proposed resolution for adoption by the Board

of Regents which would establish the basic purchasing

policy was distributed to the Board for review prior to

the May meeting. It is anticipated that a final document

will be available for consideration by the Board at that

time.



11. Legislative Program Report (as of April 5, 1967)



Mr. Hug presented the following report on the status of

legislation of interest to the University:



1. AB 6. This bill makes a special appropriation to the

University for Agricultural research and demonstration

in Pahrump Valley. The first version called for an ap-

propriation of $81,537 for the biennium. It was amend-

ed in Ways and Means Committee to provide an appropria-

tion of $52,500 for the biennium. The bill is now in

Senate Finance Committee.



2. AB 75. This bill puts Desert Research Institute under

the State Purchasing Act and prohibits the payment of

moving expenses for DRI employees. The bill is still

in the Assembly Education Committee and is considered

dead.



3. AB 94. This bill confers the right of eminent domain

upon the Board of Regents. Bill is in Assembly

Judiciary Committee and is considered dead.



4. AB 278. This bill appropriates $500,000 to the Uni-

versity for library books for the biennium. The bill

is in the Assembly Ways and Means Committee. Please

see discussion below concerning General Fund appro-

priation.



5. AB 290. Removes the indenture requirement in WICHE

contracts. This bill came out of Senate Education

Committee with a "do pass" but met with considerable

opposition on the floor and is presently on the

Secretary's desk. You probably have more accurate

information on this bill than I do, but my assumption

is that it will not pass.



6. AB 430. Reduces the vesting right of 15 years to 10

years in the Public Employees Retirement plan. This

bill is still in the Assembly Ways and Means Committee

where the reaction appears favorable.



7. AB 463. Authorizes the Board of Regents to acquire

certain specified land by condemnation. This bill came

out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee with a do pass

on a split vote. On March 22 it passed the second

reading in the Assembly and then on March 23 was placed

on the Chief Clerk's desk. The reason given was that

Assemblyman Marvin White of Clark County believed the

property description was incorrect. Mr. Whalen, Plant

Engineer, is working with the State Highway Department

on the description. One minor error is present but

it has given the opponents of this bill sufficient

reason to hold it. I am pessimistic about getting

it through.



8. AB 484. Provides for the establishment of Community

Colleges. This bill is in Ways and Means and I am not

aware of any substantial support for it.



9. AB 489. Would change the name of Nevada Southern Uni-

versity to Nevada State University. This bill is in

Committee on Education in the Assembly and it appears

to be dead.



10. SB 175. Requires persons not engaged in lawful busi-

ness to leaving building and grounds of public agen-

cies upon the request of a peace officer if the build-

ing is regularly closed to the public at that time.

This bill has a do pass in the Assembly and is present-

ly on the Chief Clerk's desk.



11. SB 194. Clarifies the residence status of a University

student who marries. This bill came out of Assembly

Education Committee with a do pass and was approved by

the Assembly; however, it was then reconsidered and

placed on the Chief Clerk's desk. The issue then be-

came sufficiently confused due to the variety of opin-

ions of different Legislators due to "clarifying resi-

dent status" and the bill will probably die where it

is.



12. The following Assembly bills have all been passed by

the Legislature and are now law.



A. AB 61. Authorizes the University to do much of its

own purchasing.



B. AB 76. Requires the University to inventory all

equipment.



C. AB 77. Modifies the State's waiver of sovereign

immunity on behalf of the University and changes

our liability insurance coverage.



D. AJR 15. Approves of further planning for a Medical

School in Northern Nevada.



E. AJR 16. Approves of the Nevada Advisory Committee

for Higher Education Planning.



F. SB 216. Provides industrial insurance coverage of

athletes at the University. This bill has cleared

both Houses and presumably will be approved by the

by Governor. It provides that members of the ath-

letic teams of the University, while engaged in

organized practice or active competition for any

activity related thereto, shall be deemed for pur-

poses of NIC coverage to be employees of the Uni-

versity of Nevada at a wage of $50 a month and in

the event of injury they are entitled to Workmen's

Compensation benefits. The Act also states that

this legislation is for the purpose of extending

insurance coverage only and is in no way intended

to affect the amateur status of the members or

imply that any such member is receiving a wage for

participation. This legislation has not received

the endorsement of the Board of Regents.



13. SB 220. Makes an appropriation of $30,000 to the

University for a football team at NSU. This bill is

still in Finance Committee and seems to enjoy very

little support.



14. SB 322. Increases the contribution rate to public

employees retirement fund to 6% of gross salary by both

the employer and employee. This bill has passed and

been signed by the Governor. We estimate that for our

present employees the additional cost next year will

be approximately $22,000.



15. SB 373. Empowers the Board of Regents to purchase land

on deferred payments. This bill has cleared the Senate

and is in the Assembly Ways and Means Committee. It

provides that the Board may purchase real property for

cash or by making a cash down payment and executing or

assuming an obligation to pay the remainder of the

price in deferred installments. It further provides

that such obligations may be secured by a mortgage or

deed of trust of the real property acquired, but shall

not constitute an obligation of the State. This bill

has not received endorsement of the Board of Regents.



16. SB 475. Authorizes the formation of the NSU Land

Foundation. This bill has been scheduled for a hearing

at 9:00 A.M., April 10, 1967 before the Senate Finance

Committee. Regent Hug has agreed to make the presenta-

tion.



17. SJR 14. Opposes the establishment of Medical School

and remains in the Education Committee of the Assembly.



18. SJR 16 and SJR 17. Provide for Legislative control of

non-appropriated funds. Both are considered dead in

the Senate.



19. SJR 19. Proposes to establish control of University

charges. Is considered dead.



20. SJR 30. As amended, controls University charges and

provides for Legislative budget control over most

University funds. This bill is in the Assembly Ways

and Means Committee and is expected to stay there.



21. SJR 26. Proposes a constitutional amendment to provide

that the Board of Regents be appointed by the Governor.

This resolution is in the Senate Finance Committee.



22. SB 493. Requires comprehensive planning for capital

improvements on new or expanded programs at the Univer-

sity. Its format requires two 5-year plans: July,

1967 through June, 1972 and July, 1974 through June,

1979. In Senate Finance Committee.



23. SJR 34. "Encourages" the Board of Regents to study the

feasibility of establishing Law School facilities in

Southern Nevada. In Finance Committee.



24. The following Senate Bills have all been passed and are

now law:



A. Senate bills 36, 37 and 38. Authorizes construc-

tion of the Physical Science building at Reno and

provide for its funding.



B. SB 143. Authorizes the Alumni Association to

incorporate as a non-profit corporation.



C. SB 81. Excludes Agricultural Extension employees

from participating in both State and Federal

retirement systems.



D. SB 136 . Adds two residents of Clark County to the

Board of Regents

University of Nevada

Reno, Nevada



Gentlemen:



As a professional organization, we of Southern Nevada

Teachers of English wish to commend your action in the

designation of the Nevada Southern Library as the James R.

Dickenson Library. This tribute is especialy fitting in

view of his being an original faculty member, instrumental

in establishing academic programs at Nevada Southern

University.



His contributions to education in Nevada are well known.

However, his interest in professional organizations and his

continuous support of Southern Nevada Teachers of English

made this recognition particularly significant to our

association.



Sincerely,



/s/ Herbert Baker



Herbert Baker, President

Southern Nevada Teachers

of English
