12. Anonymous Gift to Support a Nevada Archaeology Program



President Armstrong read to the Board the following letter

from Mr. Humphrey, with his recommendation that the sugges-

tion contained therein by approved by the Board.



"As you know, a gift of $100,000 is to be made to Univer-

sity of Nevada over a three year period to support a Nevada

Archaeology Program. The first installment of $50,000 will

be made shortly.



"This gift is in the form of stock presently held by the

donor. The transaction is being handled by United States

Trust Company of New York. They have offered to open a

temporary account for the University, sell stocks necess-

ary to secure exactly $50,000 and remit the proceeds to us

by check. This is less cumbersome than our usual procedure

of having stock transferred to Grant and Company (nominee

of First National Bank of Nevada) and then selling.



"I suggest that the Board of Regents approve acceptance of

the gift, authorize establishment of the temporary account

at United States Trust Company of New York and authorize

them to sell the stock immediately upon receipt."



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

unanimously that the President's recommendation be approved.



13. Henry W. Albert Endowment



President Armstrong explained that the University has had

for some years a small endowment fund, made available under

the terms of the will of Henry Albert, from which two cash

awards are made annually to outstanding students on the

basis of scholarship, character and service to the Univer-

sity or community. He added the University will now receive

an additional $500 to be added to the corpus of the endow-

ment and the income used for the same purpose. President

Armstrong recommended the acceptance of this bequest and

agreement to continue to adhere to the terms of the

endowment.



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

unanimously that the President's recommendation be approved.



14. Transfer of Funds



President Armstrong reported the following transfers of less

than $2,000:



#240 $435 from Teaching and Resource Center to Contingency

Reserve. This amount was inadvertently transferred

from the Contingency Reserve to the Teaching and

Resource Center, Classified Salaries (transfer #110).

The State Appropriation to the Teaching and Resource

Center is separate from Fund One and therefore,

transfers cannot be made from Fund One.



#241 $80 from Contingency Reserve to Institutional

memberships to adjust account.



#242 $232 from Contingency Reserve to Business Office,

Nevada Southern University, to provide money for auto

mileage for banking and other business away from NSU

Campus and office supplies and telephone charges.



#257 $923.44 from Audio-Visual Communications to Contin-

gency Reserve. This represents a savings in Technical

salaries.



President Armstrong recommended approval of the following

transfer of more than $2,000:



#256 $4,000 from Buildings and Grounds Repairs and Improve-

ments to Postage, Reno to provide funds for balance

of fiscal year 1965-66.



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

unanimously that the above transfers be approved.



President Armstrong recommended approval of the transfer of

$375 from fund 2-41-4032 to the President's Discretionary

Fund, 1-51-4008, to cover interview expenses for NSU.



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

unanimously that the above transfer be approved.



15. Resolution #66-7



President Armstrong recommended that the following resolu-

tion be adopted:



RESOLUTION #66-7



WHEREAS, Robert M. Moyers, formerly University Buyer, was

authorized by the Board of Regents to sign all purchase

orders to acquire surplus property for the University of

Nevada under the provisions of the surplus property utili-

zation program of the U. S. Department of Health, Education

and Welfare; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Mr. Jeffers be hereby

authorized by the Board of Regents to sign all purchase

orders issued under the provisions of the surplus property

utilization program of the U. S. Department of Health,

Education and Welfare.



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

unanimously that the above resolution be adopted.



16. Approval of Check Registers



President Armstrong recommended that the check registers,

as submitted by Mr. Humphrey, be approved.



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

by roll call vote that the check registers be approved.



17. Next Meeting



Upon motion by Mr. Jacobsen, it was unanimously voted that

no meeting of the Board be held in May. The next meeting

of the Board will be June 10, 1966 on the Reno Campus.
