 3.  Estate of Noble H. Getchell



     Mr. Humphrey reported that the University of Nevada will

     receive approximately $28,200 when the estate of Noble H.

     Getchell is settled.  Had the amount been substantially

     larger, Mr. Humphrey stated, the trustees of the estate

     were to establish the "Noble H. Getchell Educational

     Foundation", which would have as its purpose "the advance-

     ment of the mining industry of the State of Nevada and

     education at the University of Nevada generally."  However,

     because of the relatively small amount left for distribu-

     tion, the trustees have made the entire amount available

     to the University and President Miller has recommended

     that the Board of Regents designate it as a fund function-

     ing as part of our endowment fund without restrictions on

     the use of the income from the fund.  Mr. Humphrey stated

     that he concurred in Dr. Miller's recommendation and re-

     quested that:



     (a)  the Board of Regents designate this as a fund function-

          ing as an endowment;



     (b)  the income be designated for educational purposes of

          the University of Nevada; and



     (c)  annually, the President of the University of Nevada

          make a recommendation for Board review for the dis-

          tribution of the accumulated income.



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

     out dissent that the above recommendation concerning dis-

     tribution of the Noble H. Getchell Estate be approved.



 4.  Cecil W. Creel Award



     Mr. Humphrey submitted, with his endorsement and that of

     President Miller, a request from Dean Dale W. Bohmont that

     an award fund be established at the University of Nevada

     in memory of Dr. Cecil W. Creel, Dean Emeritus of the

     College of Agriculture.  The award would consist of monies

     given as gifts in support of worthy projects to be admin-

     istered by a selected committee of the College of Agri-

     culture.  Additional details concerning the award are con-

     tained in a letter from Dean Bohmont, filed with the

     permanent minutes.



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

     without dissent that the establishment of the award be

     approved as recommended.

     until September 1, 1968 to permit her to continue her

     studies at the University of California through the

 8.  Report of the Investment Advisory Committee Meeting of

     March 9, 1968



     Mr. Humphrey presented the following minutes of the Invest-

     ment Advisory Committee meeting of the above date, noting

     that a quorum was not present at the meeting and that the

     Trust Department of First National Bank had subsequently

     confirmed all action with the members.  He recommended

     approval of the minutes and confirmation of the Committee

     action.



     A called meeting was scheduled for 12:00 noon in the dining

     room of the University of Nevada Technical Institute at

     Stead.  The following members of the Committee were present:

     Louis Lombardi (Chairman) and Paul Mc Dermott.  Others

     present were Board of Regents Chairman Fred M. Anderson,

     Regent Juanita White, Vice Chancellor Wendell Mordy and

     Dean Robert C. Weems, Jr. of the College of Business Ad-

     ministration.  Representing the First National Bank of

     Nevada were:  Mr. R. O. Kwapil, Vice President and Senior

     Trust Officer, and Mr. Walter D. Bradley, Trust Officer.



     There being no quorum, an official meeting was not held.

     However, recommendations of the bank were presented.



     The first was the proposed sale of



         800 shares United Gas Corporation @76 1/2

         500 shares Procter & Gamble Company @85

                     plus

         $3000 in U. S. Treasury Bills



     and the purchase of



        1000 shares Purex Corporation, Ltd. @30

         700 shares Transamerica Corporation @47 1/2

         400 shares American Hospital Supply @78 1/2

         200 shares White Motor Company (makes 1000 shares)

             @48 1/2



     The second was the investment of approximately $250,000 in

     growth oriented stocks to be submitted by the bank for

     Board approval.



     There were no objections; in fact, there seemed to be

     general approval of the recommendations.



     Because there was no quorum, the bank agreed to prepare

     detailed recommendations for submitting to the membership

     for a mail ballot.



     The proposed date and place for the next meeting was May

     11 in Reno.



                             Robert C. Weems, Jr.

                             Acting Secretary



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

     without dissent that the action of the Committee as

     reflected in the above minutes be confirmed.



 9.  Proposed Admission Policy for Nevada Southern University's

     General and Technical Institute



     Mr. Humphrey reviewed the earlier action of the Board when

     it had designated the Schools of Nevada Southern University

     as Colleges and had deferred such designation of the Gen-

     eral and Technical Institute until the admission require-

     ments were clarified.  He noted that a recommendation has

     now been received from President Moyer that the admission

     requirements for the College of General and Technical

     Studies be equivalent to those of other Schools and Colleges

     of Nevada Southern with the exception of a General Studies

     Qualifying Program.



     This program, initiated last year on an experimental basis,

     provides for admission of students with a high school di-

     ploma, but with a GPA of less than 2.3.  These students

     will be restricted to certain courses which the faculty

     believes to be valid predictors of success at Nevada

     Southern University.  Students in the General Studies

     Program who do not achieve a 2.0 average during their

     first year will be dropped from the Program.



     Mr. Humphrey recommended approval of the request for desig-

     nation of the General and Technical Institute as the

     College of General and Technical Studies, effective July 1,

     1968, with the College to be administered by a Dean.



     Mr. Humphrey further recommended that the continuation of

     the General Studies Qualifying Program be approved under

     the guidelines set forth in a letter from Dwight A. Marshall

     dated March 27, 1968, filed with the permanent minutes.



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

     out dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



     Mr. Humphrey noted that this action is a significant ex-

     ample of the autonomy of the two Universities.  He stated

     that this action makes the admissions standards and the

     curriculum of the College of General and Technical Studies

     at NSU different from the Nevada Technical Institute at

     the University of Nevada.  He added that this proposal for

     a change had not been reviewed by the University of Nevada

     faculty, nor will proposals by the University of Nevada

     faculty which are considered of basically unilateral con-

     cern be referred to the NSU faculty.



10.  Proposed Class A Action Concerning Changes in Admission

     Requirements and in Terminology for Unclassified and

     Special Students



     Mr. Humphrey presented the following recommendations from

     the faculties of the two Universities, noting that in each

     case the recommendations are endorsed by the two Presidents:



     A.  To simplify the Freshman admission requirements, it is

         recommended that:



         (1)  The current "quality unit" admission requirement

              for regular Freshmen and unclassified students

              be converted to an "overall grade-point average"

              requirement effective for all new students enter-

              ing for the 1969 Fall semester; and



         (2)  An overall high school GPA of 2.3 (A=4, B=3, C=2)

              be established as the minimum admission requirement

              for regular Freshmen.



         Mr. Humphrey recommended approval.



         Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott,

         carried without dissent that the above recommended

         change be approved.



     B.  To provide for an early confirmation of acceptance

         under the foregoing policy, it is recommended that

         high school applicants who have earned an overall

         grade-point average of 2.5 or higher, including the

         first half of their Senior year, are eligible for

         early confirmation of admission.  Final admission

         is contingent upon the receipt of an official high

         school transcript showing the date of graduation.



         Mr. Humphrey recommended approval.



         Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried

         without dissent that the above recommended change be

         approved.



     C.  To clarify the current admission terminology, it is

         recommended that:



         (1)  The terms Unclassified, Unclassified on Probation,

              Unclassified on Probation by Examination, be

              replaced by the single term "Freshman on Proba-

              tion".



         (2)  the term Probation no longer requires a reduction

              in credit load, effective July 1, 1968.  (A stu-

              dent on probation usually will have his credit

              load determined by consultation with his advisor

              and, when necessary, by the Dean or Director of

              the School or College.)



         Mr. Humphrey recommended approval.



         Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, car-

         ried without dissent that the above recommended change

         be approved.



     D.  To make current University policy consistent internal-

         ly, it is recommended that:



         (1)  Freshmen admitted on probation be removed from

              "probation" when the proper subject deficiency

              is removed, or 15 semester credits or more are

              earned at the University with a cumulative GPA

              of 2.0 or above.



         (2)  Students transferring to the University with

              less than 15 acceptable transfer credits be re-

              quired to satisfy both the transfer and Freshman

              admission requirements.



         Mr. Humphrey recommended approval.



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

         without dissent that the following sentence be added

         to D.  (1) - "All subject deficiencies must be removed

         before graduation."



         Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

         without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

         proved as amended.



     E.  Regarding Special Students, it is recommended that:



         (1)  The current credit load policy of six credits

              of classroom instruction per semester be retained.



         (2)  The term "Non-Degree" replace the word "Special".



         (3)  Special students (non-degree) shall be subject to

              the general University rules of suspension and

              disqualification, effective September 1, 1968.

              Current special (non-degree) students with a minus

              -15 or more grade balance will be notified that a

              "C" average or above must be maintained each

              semester until such time as this deficiency is

              reduced to minus -14 or less.



         Regarding E. (1) above, Dr. Anderson spoke of the

         restriction to six credits, expressing concern that the

         restriction seems to encourage a student to waste his

         time since it neither permits him to be completely

         occupied with school nor does it allow him to be

         employed full-time.  Dr. White suggested that this

         particular part of the recommendation be referred back

         to the faculties.



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

         without dissent that the above recommendation be

         approved with the exception of E. (1) which would be

         referred back to the faculty for further exploration.



11.  Proposed Class A Action Concerning Change in Timing of

     Freshman English, University of Nevada



     Mr. Humphrey presented the following proposal from the

     University of Nevada to change the timing of Freshman

     English:



     (a)  The basic courses, presently numbered English 101-102,

          shall be offered as two independent courses.



     (b)  The normal time for completing English 101 shall be

          the first semester of the Freshman year.  If a stu-

          dent is obliged to register for English A the first

          semester of registration, English 101 shall be taken

          the second semester.



     (c)  English 102 must be taken prior to the time the stu-

          dent attains Junior standing.  Its timing may be

          determined by the College in which the student is

          registered or by the Department in which the student

          has declared a major or field of concentration.



     Mr. Humphrey noted that this proposal has received the

     endorsement of President Miller and he recommended its

     approval by the Board.



     Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with-

     out dissent that the above proposal for the University of

     Nevada be approved as recommended.



12.  Proposed Class A Action Concerning Updating of Resident

     Credit Requirements, University of Nevada



     Mr. Humphrey presented the following proposal from the

     University of Nevada faculty concerning updating of resi-

     dent credit requirement regulations:



     University of Nevada General Catalog, 1967-68, Page 43:



         Resident Credit Requirements:  A candiate for an

         Associate or baccalaureate degree must complete

         the last 30 semester credits in uninterrupted

         resident credit, special examination or corres-

         pondence excepted, on the Campus and in the College

         or School from which the degree is expected.



     The remainder of the policy statement on page 43 would be

     the same, except:



         (a)  The last sentence "Associate degree students are

              required to complete a minimum of 32 semester

              credits in residence." would be deleted, and



         (b)  A statement that "credit earned at the Stead

              Facility is considered the same as credit earned

              on the Reno Campus" should be added for clari-

              fication in the last paragraph.



     Mr. Humphrey noted that this proposed change has been en-

     dorsed by President lMiller and he recommended its ap-

     proval by the Board.



     Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

     without dissent that the above change be approved.



13.  Proposed New Degree Programs for NSU



     At Mr. Humphrey's request President Moyer and Dr. Dwight

     Marshall presented proposals for the following new degree

     programs, effective September, 1968:



     (a)  Associate and Baccalaureate Degree Programs in Radi-

          ologic Technology.  (Detailed proposal, as distributed

          to Regents, is on file in the Chancellor's Office.)



          Mr. Humphrey recommended approval of the program as

          proposed.



          Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried

          without dissent that the new program be approved

          as recommended, effective September, 1968.



     (b)  Associate Degree in Radiation Health Technology.

          (Detailed proposal, as distributed to Regents, is

          on file in the Chancellor's Office.)



          Mr. Humphrey recommended approval of the program as

          proposed.



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

          without dissent that the new program be approved as

          recommended, effective September, 1968.



14.  Proposed New Degree Program for U. N.



     At Mr. Humphrey's request, President Miller and Mr. Harry

     Wolf presented a proposal for a new Associate Degree in

     Business Technology Program effective September, 1968.

     (Detailed proposal, as distributed to Regents, is on file

     in the Chancellor's Office.)



     Mr. Humphrey recommended approval of the program as pro-

     posed.



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

     without dissent that the new program be approved as recom-

     mended, effective September, 1968.



Regent Magee entered the meeting at this point.



15.  Administrative Reorganization



     (a)  DRI Reorganization - Mr. Humphrey reviewed the earlier

          submission by Vice Chancellor Mordy of a proposal for

          the establishment of DRI as a not-for-profit corpora-

          tion reporting to a separate board of trustees.  Mr.

          Humphrey noted that the Ad Hoc Committee for Adminis-

          trative Reorganization had reviewed the proposal and

          transmitted it to the two Faculty Senates.  The

          University of Nevada Senate had requested that con-

          sideration be delayed until that group had an oppor-

          tunity to adequately review the proposal.  Mr.

          Humphrey further noted that the Attorney General, in

          a letter of advice, stated that the DRI proposal was

          not possible under existing law.  Dr. Squires has,

          therefore, withdrawn the proposal for further study

          by the DRI senior staff.



     (b)  Definition of the Duties of the Presidents and the

          Chancellor - Mr. Humphrey presented a memorandum to

          the Board which detailed a proposed amendment to the

          By-Laws of the Board of Regents, noting that this

          amendment would provide the basic definition of the

          duties and responsibilities of the Presidents of the

          University of Nevada and Nevada Southern University

          and the Chancellor of the University of Nevada System.

          He stated that this proposal had been developed by

          Presidents Moyer and Miller and himself and was unani-

          mously recommended by the 3 of them for approval by

          the Board of Regents.  (Memorandum is attached to

          the permanent minutes.)



          Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Mc Dermott, carried

          without dissent that the proposed amendment be approv-

          ed on "first reading" and that final adoption occur

          at the May meeting of the Board.



16.  Report on the Programs and Activities of the General and

     Technical Institute, Nevada Southern University



     President Moyer introduced Mr. Dwight Marshall who, in

     cooperation with other members of the staff of the Insti-

     Program following a general outline transmitted to the

     Board with the agenda.  (Outline filed in permanent min-

     utes.)



17.  Bond Bid Opening, NSU Chemistry Building



     Chairman Anderson introduced Mr. Nicholas Smith, Vice

     President of Burrows, Smith and Company, fiscal advisors

     to the University for revenue bond issues.



     Mr. Smith reviewed the bids received, noting that bids

     had been received from Stern Brothers of Kansas City at

     a net interest cost of $774,900 (net interest rate:

     5.6329%); White Weld & Co., Chicago at a net interest cost

     of $813,225.20 (net interest rate:  5.9114%); and John

     Nuveen & Company at a net interest cost of $816,360 (net

     interest rate of 5.9343%).



     Mr. Smith recommended the bid of Stern Brothers of Kansas

     City be accepted.  Mr. Humphrey concurred and recommended

     that Dr. Anderson, as Chairman, be authorized to sign the

     necessary documents on behalf of the Board of Regents.



     Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

     without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



The Board recessed for lunch and for a personnel session and

reconvened at 4:05 P.M.  Present for this session of the meeting

were Regents Anderson, Bell, Hug, Magee, Ronzone, Seeliger and

White, and members of the staff.



18.  Lease of Lakeside Drive Property



     Mr. Humphrey reviewed the results of the telephone poll

     concerning the proposal to lease the University residence

     on Lakeside Drive and requested the Board to formally

     confirm the affirmative vote cast by telephone (results

     of poll filed with permanent minutes).



     Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

     without dissent that the Board formally confirm its affirm-

     ative vote to lease the Lakeside Drive property to Mr.

     William Lear for one year, at an annual rate of $9600,

     Agriculture that it be allowed to place on the Campus,

     immediately south of the Veterinary Science building,

     a walk-in deep freeze unit to be used in conjunction with

     its animal health teaching and research program.  Mr.

     Humphrey noted that President Miller had endorsed this

     request and he recommended approval by the Board of

     Regents.



     Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

     without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



20.  Proposed Condemnation of Property in Little Valley



     Mr. Humphrey reviewed the earlier action by the Nevada State

     Legislature in extending to the University the right of

     eminent domain for a specific piece of property in Little

     Valley.  The Attorney General's Office, acting on that

     authorization had prepared a formal Declaration of Inten-

     tion to Condemn Real Property which Mr. Humphrey recom-

     mended the Board of Regents adopt.  (Document filed with

     permanent minutes.)



     Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

     without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



21.  Requests for Re-Zoning of Properties near NSU



     Mr. Humphrey presented a recommendation from President

     Moyer which proposed that the University oppose 2 requests

     which are pending before the Clark County Planning Commis-

     sion to change the zoning on the east side of Maryland

     Parkway from R-1 to C-1 (limited commercial).  One of these

     requests is for construction directly across from Frazier

     Hall and the other for construction on a lot across the

     street from a point slightly north of Grant Hall; both

     requests for the establishment of restaurants.  Mr.

     Humphrey concurred in President Moyer's recommendation

     and requested approval by the Board.



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

     without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



22.  Design Contract for Heat Line Connection to Palmer Engi-

     neering Building, U. N.



     Mr. Pine reported that the Director of the State Depart-

     ment of Administration, with the concurrence of the State

     Planning Board, has authorized the University to negotiate

     a design contract for providing heat line connections to

     Palmer Engineering building.  He noted that $11,013.98 is

     available in a special appropriation and requested that

     the Board approve the negotiation of a contract with

     D'Autremont and Associates for the design of the heat

     trench and lines and the unused balance of the appropria-

     tion to be used for the necessary change order or contract

     for construction.  President Miller and Acting Chancellor

     Humphrey both endorsed the request and recommended ap-

     proval.



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

     by roll call vote that the above recommendation be approved.

     Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried by roll

     call vote that the above recommendation be approved.



26.  ROTC Programs



     Mr. Humphrey presented recommendations from both Presidents

     concerning ROTC programs at their respective Campuses.



     Nevada Southern University - It was noted that a voluntary

     ROTC program was recommended by an Ad Hoc Committee appoint-

     ed by President Moyer.  That report, filed with Board of

     Regents for information purposes in February, was referred

     to the Faculty Senate, the Academic Council and the faculty.

     These three groups by majority votes oppose the establish-

     ment of ROTC, either voluntary or compulsory, at NSU.  Mr.

     Humphrey noted that President Moyer recommended that "NSU

     adopt voluntary ROTC in principle; program to be initiated

     in the Fall of 1969 if the Nevada Legislature will fund

     space and facilities and operating funds for the program

     over and above other funding for the regular academic

     programs at NSU."  (Letter from President Moyer filed with

     permanent minutes.)



     University of Nevada - Mr. Humphrey noted that President

     Miller had appointed a new Military Affairs Board to review

     the problem of ROTC at the University of Nevada, adding that

     the Board has now filed its report (report filed in perma-

     nent minutes).  That report, Mr. Humphrey stated, recommend-

     ed that "entering male students not otherwise exempted meet

     the military requirement of the University by electing one

     of four options."  President Miller urged adoption of this

     recommendation.



     Mr. Humphrey recommended that the Board approve the requests

     of the two Presidents, with the program proposed at NSU to

     become effective upon the granting of an ROTC program by the

     US Army and the availability of space on or near the Campus,

     but in no case earlier than Fall, 1969.  He recommended that

     the University of Nevada proposal become effective Fall,

     1968.



     During the period of discussion, Dr. Anderson invited par-

     ticipation by student representatives present at the meet-

     ing from both student bodies.  Chuck Crawford, President

     of the CSNS Senate, spoke briefly concerning a report

     which had been forwarded to the Regents (copy filed with

     permanent minutes) and members of the ASUN (Ernie Maupin,

     ASUN President, Joe Bell, ASUN President-Elect, Richard

     Harris, ASUN First Vice President, and Ted Dickson, ASUN

     First Vice President-Elect) spoke briefly concerning the

     recommendations of the Military Affairs Board.



     Mr. Ronzone expressed concern that several members of the

     Board, whom he said had strong reservations about certain

     aspects of the recommendations concerning the ROTC programs,

     had already left the meeting for other engagements and

     moved that action be deferred until the May meeting at

     which time they would be present.  Mr. Bell seconded.

     Motion failed by a vote of 4 to 2.



     Mr. Hug then moved approval of the proposal for the Uni-

     versity of Nevada.  Mrs. Magee seconded.  Mr. Seeliger

     proposed an amendment to the motion to the effect that

     the proposal be approved subject to final approval of

     the details of the options.  The amendment was accepted

     and motion carried with 5 ayes and Regent Ronzone opposing.



     Mrs. Magee then moved that action on the NSU proposal be

     deferred until a subsequent meeting, Mr. Ronzone seconded

     and the motion carried without dissenting vote.



27.  English A Programs



     Mr. Humphrey noted that a report on this subject will be

     scheduled for the May meeting.



28.  Resolution #68-7



     Mr. Humphrey submitted a resolution concerning the issuance

     of student fee revenue bonds for the construction of a

     Chemistry building at Nevada Southern and recommended its

     adoption by the Board of Regents.



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

     out dissent that the following resolution be adopted by

     the Board.



                          RESOLUTION #68-7



         A RESOLUTION CONCERNING THE ISSUANCE BY THE BOARD OF

         REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA OF THE UNIVERSITY'S

         OBLIGATIONS DESIGNATED AS THE "UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA

         STUDENT FEES REVENUE BONDS, SERIES MAY 1, 1968" IN THE

         PRINCIPAL AMOUNT OF $700,000.00, FOR THE PURPOSE OF

         CONSTRUCTING AND OTHERWISE ACQUIRING FOR THE UNIVERSITY

         A CHEMISTRY BUILDING AT NEVADA SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY, AND

         ACQUIRING EQUIPMENT AND FURNISHINGS THEREFOR AND OTHER

         APPURTENANCES RELATING THERETO; ACCEPTING THE BEST BID

         TAKEN TOWARD ACQUIRING SUCH IMPROVEMENTS AND ISSUING THE

         BONDS; AND REPEALING ALL RESOLUTIONS IN CONFLICT HERE-

         WITH.



29.  Amendment to By-Laws of the Board of Regents



     Mr. Humphrey reviewed the earlier action of the Board of

     Regents in discontinuing the practice of taking a roll call

     vote under certain conditions.  Mr. Humphrey noted that

     this action was taken as the result of incorrect informa-

     tion to the effect that the requirement was not a part of

     the By-Laws, when in fact it is a requirement under the

     present By-Laws (Article V, Section 7).  He recommended

     that the By-Laws be amended and that section read as fol-

     lows:



         A roll call vote of record shall be had upon request

         of any member of the Board.



     Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Dr. White, carried with-

     out dissent that the above revision to the By-Laws be

     approved on first reading with final adoption to occur at

     the May meeting.



     At Dr. Anderson's request a roll call vote was taken to

     confirm all actions by the Board of Regents during the

     March and April meetings not taken by roll call vote.



30.  Policy Manual of the Board of Regents



     Mr. Humphrey stated that the first draft of the codifica-

     tion of existing Board of Regents policy was now ready for

     distribution and requested each member to review the draft

     carefully for any revisions which might be required.  He

     also noted that some of the material contained in the

     draft is not currently considered policy of the Board but

     has not been formally repealed.



The meeting adjourned at 5:25 P.M.
