Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Dr. Anderson, car-
ried unanimously that the salary increases be approved
and that contracts be issued accordingly.

4. Office of the President

Mr. Thompson suggested that, in view of the fact that the
Regents will soon be ready for personal interviews with
applicants for the Presidency, agreement should be reached
regarding salary and other benefits to be offered to him.
The matter was discussed, and

Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried with
the following vote, that those who negotiate in connection
with the position of President of the University of Nevada
be authorized to offer an annual salary of $17,500, plus the
use of the house at 1080 Mt. Rose Street with utilities and
use of buildings and grounds personnel in maintaining the
grounds, an expense account of $300 per month against which
he would be authorized to draw (with an accounting) for
actual expenses incurred in connection with the duties of
his office, and use of a University car. Vote:

"Aye" - Anderson, Bastian, Broadbent, Elwell, Grant,
Hardy, Thompson
"No " - Sawyer

5. Kendall Request

Dean Scheid submitted a report of the findings of himself
and the members of his staff concerning the items in the
Mackay School of Mines Museum received from Zeb Kendall,
and now claimed by the son, A. L. Kendall, on the basis
that they were not gifts, but loans. Included in Dean
Scheid's report were affidavits from Walter S. Palmer,
Vincent P. Gianella and Wm. I. Smyth that these items were
received as gifts. Copies of letters from B. F. Couch to
Vernon E. Scheid dated May 5, 1956, from Clarence H. Mackay
to John A. Fulton dated May 7, 1928, from Zeb Kendall to H.
E. Higgins dated April 7, 1928 and from John A. Fulton to
Zeb Kendall dated December 10, 1928 were also included in
the report, bearing out the fact that these items were gifts
to the Mackay Museum. On the basis of the affidavits, cor-
repondence and other research concerning these museum pieces
Dean Scheid requested that the items in question be retained
as a part of the Mackay Museum.

Motion by Mr. Sawyer, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
unanimously that the report and recommendation be accepted,
and that the request of Mr. A. L. Kendall for return of the
articles be denied.

7. Holmshaw Estate

Dr. Wood presented a check in the sum of $57,116.30 received
from the Executor of the estate of Alma M. Holmshaw "in par-
tial payment and satisfaction of the amount to which the
University of Nevada is entitled as one of the legatees pur-
suant to the provisions of the Last Will and Testament of
Alma M. Holmshaw, deceased, as set forth in the Paragraph
of said Will designated Nineteenth. These funds are ac-
cepted subject to all of the terms and conditions of said
Paragraph Nineteenth, and shall be used and applied by the
said University legatee for the establishment of a separate
fund to be known as 'The Harry F. Holmshaw Scholarship'.
It is further understood that the Regents or other qualified
officials of the University shall in their full and uncon-
trolled discretion, make annual scholarship awards out of
said funds to worthy and deserving students; that primary
consideration shall be given to the need of the student or
students receiving said awards rather than to their scholas-
tic standing, and particularly to assist deserving students
who would otherwise be unable to continue their studies in
the University of Nevada; and that said awards shall be
made regardless of race, sex, color or creed."

Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
unanimously that Acting President Wood be authorized to
sign the receipt for $57,116.30 and that the Secretary
write a note of appreciation to Mr. Sam Platt, Attorney,
Mr. Hayes Schaffer, Executor, and Mr. F. M. Young, all
of whom were helpful in the satisfactory handling of the
estate.

Motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
unanimously that the Harry F. Holmshaw Scholarship material
be referred to the Chairman of the Committee on Scholarships
and Prizes with the request that the Committee recommend
the process for making the awards, and other necessary de-
tails in handling the scholarships, and that the recommenda-
tion be referred to the Board of Regents for final approval.

8. Virginia and Truckee Railway Historical Material

Mr. Thompson inquired as to this collection and other un-
catalogued collections on the Campus, with a view to esti-
mating the cost and determining the advisability of putting
them in workable shape. Dr. Wood was asked to check into
any such material for report to the Board of Regents.

9. Property Matters

Report was given by Mr. Hayden as follows:

a) Blair - Mr. Hayden had talked with Mrs. Blair concern-
ing property arrangements with her, and the situation
will be settled within the next 2 or 3 weeks in accord
with action of the Board of Regents.

b) Nielsen - Mr. Nielsen has been asked for a survey of the
boundary line of the property and of the sewer line, but
he does not have them. Mr. Nielsen indicated that he is
now willing to go into escrow and sell the property.

Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
unanimously that the Comptroller be authorized to take
the necessary steps to acquire the property, and that
the University supply the survey of boundary line and
sewer line.

c) Schmitt - Negotiations with Mr. Schmitt have not result-
ed in agreement. Appraisal of the property is now being
obtained.

d) Capurro - There was a minor error in the description of
the property which held up its purchase following ap-
propriation by the Legislature. Description is being
checked by Mr. Robinson, Attorney, and any error will
be corrected.

e) Ladino Dairy Farm - Dean Adams reported, through Mr.
Hayden, that a report will be forthcoming at the next
meeting of the Board.

10. Las Vegas Building Program

Dr. Wood suggested that a date be set for the dedication of
plaques in the new building, together with an open house,
and that at the same time a ground-breaking ceremony for
the second building on the Campus be planned.

Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried
unanimously that the date for these ceremonies be set for
Sunday, May 11, and that the next meeting of the Board of
Regents be held on Monday, May 12, in Las Vegas.

11. Cornerstone - Student Building

Dr. Wood reported on plans for laying the cornerstone in
the Jot Travis Student Union under the direction of the
Masonic Order, as requested by the Board of Regents.

Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
unanimously that the date for laying the cornerstone be
set for Sunday, May 18.

12. Off-Campus Instructional Centers

Dr. Wood reported on his trips to Ely and Elko to meet with
the Boards of Education in regard to off-campus instruction-
al centers of the University of Nevada, and presented the
following report:

As a means of improving University services throughout
the year to the residents of Northeastern Nevada and to
the residents of Eastern Nevada, the following plan, to
be initiated at the beginning of the next academic year
on an experimental basis, is proposed.

PART ONE

1. That the University through its Statewide Develop-
ment Program provide a limited number of University
level Freshman courses in late afternoons, evenings
and Saturday mornings both in Elko and in Ely.

2. That Instructors in such courses be provided either
by qualified school teachers with Master's degrees,
or by other comparably qualified residents of the
community concerned.

3. That the program to be offered in this manner dur-
ing the 1st semester of 1958-59 include such cours-
es as the 2 non-credit refresher courses, English A
and Mathematics A, and the credit courses, English
101, "Composition and Rhetoric" (3 credits), His-
tory 101, "United States History" (3 credits) or
History 105, "European Civilization" (3 credits),
Mathematics 101, "Intermediate Algebra" (2 credits)
or Mathematics 110, "College Algebra" (3 credits),
Political Science 101, "American Government" (3
credits), and Speech 111, "Public Speaking" (2
credits).

It should be noted that these courses are general
requirements for graduation in most programs
of study offered by the University.

4. That a definite limitation of not more than 1 full
year of University work be placed upon the total
amount of University credit acceptable at the Uni-
versity of Nevada or recommended for transfer else-
where that could be earned by a student at Elko or
at Ely.

5. That a limitation of not more than 1 course per
semester, in addition to regular school assign-
ments, be placed on the overload that a qualified
school teacher would be permitted to carry, and
this only with the express approval of the princi-
pal and superintendent concerned.

6. That at least once each semester the University ar-
range to have the Chairman of the Department in
which the particular course is offered on the Reno
Campus visit each class offered through the State-
wide Development Program in Elko and in Ely, and
that the school, or other, Instructors be invited
and encouraged to meet, if possible, with the mem-
bers of the Department at least once each semester
on the Reno Campus.

7. That the credentials of the school teachers, or
others, who would serve as Instructors be reviewed
and approved by the Chairman of the Department and
the Dean of the College concerned prior to their
appointments to handle the University assignment.

8. That arrangements be made with the public school
officials in Elko and in Ely to provide the neces-
sary facilities for the class work at times that
would not interfere with their regular secondary
school program.

9. That Instructors be paid on the same basis as other
Instructors in the Evening Division and Off-Campus
Program.

10. That the students taking the courses be charged the
usual part-time fee of $10 per credit, or equiva-
lent, for non-credit courses.

11. That the University of Nevada assume responsibility
for the administrative overhead costs and for pro-
viding an adequate supply of reference materials
which may not be available in either the public or
secondary school libraries in Elko and in Ely.

12. That the Board of Regents, as well as the Boards
of Education of Elko County and White Pine County,
approve the proposed arrangement prior to its
initiation.

13. That the Board of Regents of the University of
Nevada officially designate Elko and Ely as "Uni-
versity of Nevada Regional Off-Campus Instructional
Centers".

PART TWO

It is further proposed that on an experimental and
limited basis such University-level Freshman courses
be open to honor roll students in their senior year of
high school, upon approval of their principal.

If this plan were adopted, it should serve as a stimulus
to the able student and make possible either an earlier
completion of University work or an opportunity to do
more advanced work or carry a broader program of studies
while at the University. The high school senior would
carry the College-level course in addition to his regu-
lar high school program.

Credit earned would apply, not toward graduation from
high school or admission to College, but toward gradu-
ation from the University. Grades earned in the course
would be authenticated by a standardized examination,
such as the "Advanced Placement Examinations" or the
"Sequential Tests of Educational Progress".

The fees to be paid for each course would be the same
as those paid by all other University part-time stu-
dents, $10 per credit.

The student would not be able to take more than a one
such course per semester, with a total limitation of
6 to 8 credits.

It is probable that not more than a dozen such honor
students would be interested in participating in such
a program at Elko or at Ely next year.

It is suggested that the proposed experiment be given a
trial at Elko and at Ely, beginning next September, if
appropriate arrangements can be made.

Motion by Mr. Sawyer, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried unani-
mously that Dr. Wood be authorized to carry out the program
as proposed, and that an annual report be made to the Board
of Regents.

The Board recessed at 12 noon for luncheon.

The recessed meeting was called to order at 2 P.M. by the Chair-
man. Regents Anderson and Sawyer had a luncheon engagement and
returned at 2:50 P.M.

13. Surplus Property

Mr. Hayden requested formal action authorizing him to sign
for the University in placing orders to the Nevada State
Surplus Property Division. This authorization is required
by the General Accounting Office of the U. S. Department of
Health, Education and Welfare.

Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
unanimously that the following resolution be adopted:

RESOLVED, that the Comptroller of the University of
Nevada is hereby authorized to sign requisitions and
purchase orders for surplus property from the State
Surplus Property Division.

14. Indian Agency Contract

Mr. Hayden requested formal action authorizing the Presi-
dent to sign, on behalf of the University, the contract and
amendments to the contract which the University has with
the Nevada Indian Agency for the Economic Study of Pyramid
Lake.

Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
unanimously that the following resolution be adopted:

RESOLVED, that the President of the University of
Nevada is hereby authorized to sign the contract, and
any amendments, between the Bureau of Indian Affairs,
and the University of Nevada for the Economic Study
of Pyramid Lake.

15. Leave and Health Examination Policies

Dr. Wood proposed that a committee be set up to study and
propose a policy concerning sick leave, annual leave,
terminal leave, health examination and related matters.

Motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried unani-
mously that the President be asked to set up a committee
from members of the professional staff to study these policy
matters, and to make recommendation to the Board of Regents.

16. Desert Research Institute

Meetings have been held with the Western Nevada Development
group and similar interested groups, and considerable in-
terest has been indicated. A report will be presented to
the Board of Regents at the next meeting.

17. Building Program

Engineer Rogers presented and discussed the following items
of the University Building Program:

a) Married Housing Units - Architects Ferris and Erskine
were present to discuss plans for the married housing
units on the site originally selected for the project.
Mr. Erskine explained the details of the newly designed
units, which bring the cost within the budget. On the
basis of the plans and the explanation given by the
architect, Dr. Wood recommended tentative approval with
authority to present the plans to the Building Committee
of the Regents when the drawings are ready for final
approval.

Motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
unanimously that the preliminary plans be approved,

ments can be worked out.

proval was confirmed.

able, that such courses be included in the curriculum as
soon as feasible.

26. Gas Distribution System

Regent Thompson discussed the gas distribution system on the
Campus. During the past year the Sierra Pacific Power Com-
pany has been carrying on a study of the gas distribution
system in Reno under procedures approved by the Public Serv-
ice Commission. However, there is a line within the bound-
aries of the Campus which does not come under the jurisdic-
tion of the Power Company or the Public Service Commission,
and therefore, was not included in the Power Company study.
It was noted that the University has been conducting a study
and survey of the gas distribution system, using a local
firm.

Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried
unanimously that the President of the University and the
University Engineer be authorized to negotiate with the
Sierra Pacific Power Company to see if any practical plan
can be worked out whereby the Power Company would maintain
the gas distribution system on the Campus.

ceived, and later confirmed in writing that "The State of

versity of Nevada's request for an advance for a planning

lowing resolution was adopted unanimously and the President
