Report of bid opening:

Comptroller Hayden and Engineer Poolman met at 4 P.M.
on Friday, February 17, 1956, to open bids for casework
in Manzanita Hall, as per bid notice duly published in
local papers. Architects De Longchamps and O'Brien were
also present.

In the absence of President Stout, Mr. Hayden opened
the bids, which were tabulated by the Comptroller, as
follows:

The bids were turned over to Mr. Poolman and the archi-
tects for study.

Upon recommendation of Mr. Poolman and the architects the
contract was awarded to W. H. Wine Construction Company.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the action
in awarding the contract to W. H. Wine Construction Company,
the lowest bidder, be approved.

5. Right-of-Way - Dairy Farm

The request of Bell Telephone Company of Nevada for a right-
of-way across the northern extremity of the Dairy Farm was
presented and recommended, since it would not interfere with
the operation of the Farm.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the right
of way request be granted.

6. Schmitt and Nielsen Property

Mr. Hayden, who had been authorized to continue negotiations
with Mr. Schmitt and Mr. Nielsen with regard to property
owned by them and needed by the University, reported on
latest developments. He first drafted a letter, which was
approved by the Attorney General, notifying the two gentle-
men that the University desired to acquire the property.
In both instances, replies were unfavorable.

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the President
and the Business Office be authorized to proceed, with the
assistance of the Attorney General, to take the necessary
steps to acquire the property, including condemnation, if
necessary.

The meeting recessed at 12 noon for luncheon.

The recessed meeting was called to order by the Chairman at 2
P.M., with the 4 members of the Board of Regents, the President,
the Comptroller and the University Engineer present.

President Stout reported that the members of the Press had asked
for the list of salary increases. Mr. Bennyhoff, as spokesman
for the Press, then stated that the Press wished to examine the
pay raises but did not intend to publish all of them.

The Regents went into Executive Session at 2:20 P.M. and returned
to open session at 2:25 P.M. Chairman Ross released the list to
the Press, relying on the statement that the list would not be
published in its entirety.

7. President's House on the Campus

A letter was read from Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity asking
approval from the Board of Regents to bid on the purchase
of the house formerly occupied by the President, and if suc-
cessful in their bid, to move the house from the Campus.

According to present plans, the house is to be included in
the general specifications, to be demolished during the
work of the construction of the Fleischmann building, and
the University is to retain radiators, plumbing units, etc.

Motion by Mr. Thompson carried, with the following vote,
that the building be included in the bid, as presently
planned; and at the same time, that it be included as an
alternate, for sale, demolishing and removal: Grant,
Lombardi, Thompson - aye; Ross - no.

8. Manogue High School Property

A letter from Vernon G. Ambrose, Real Estate Broker, was
received suggesting that the University might be interested
in purchasing the Manogue High School property, to be of-
fered for sale. Mr. Hayden reported that later word from
Mr. Ambrose was that the property would not be available
as soon as anticipated, and that they would be interested,
if the University should want to go to the Legislature for
an appropriation to purchase the property.

9. Policing System

A proposed traffic code was presented. Mr. Hayden dis-
cussed the plan, which would provide for 2 full time traffic
officers paid by the University, giving patrol service from
8 A.M. to midnight.

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the traffic
code be accepted as a working guide, with details to be
worked out with the Attorney General and the Highway Patrol
Department.

10. Suspension-Expulsion Regulations

The matter of suspension and expulsion of students from the
University had been taken up with the Attorney General fol-
lowing suspension action against certain University students
who were reinstated upon the basis of later evidence, in
consultation with the Attorney General. Proposed Rules
Governing Disciplinary Action which Involves Suspension or
Expulsion from the University of Nevada were drawn up by
the Attorney General and presented to the Regents for dis-
cussion and consideration.

By consensus, it was agreed that the Rules be taken under
consideration for further study.

11. Room and Board Contracts

The following items concerning room and board were presented
by the President, having been submitted by Dean Carlson and
approved by the Comptroller.

a) Increased costs, including the State Civil Service pay
scale, have reduced the operating margin of the Dining
Hall. In order to continue an operation which will
provide for adequate maintenance, replacement of equip-
ment and operating reserve, it was recommended that the
rate for the Dining Hall be increased to $234 per semes-
ter, effective with the Fall semester 1956, and that
contracts be made accordingly.

b) It is planned to operate the Dining Hall for the Summer
Sessions in conjunction with the residence halls. A
smaller volume may be anticipated for the Summer than
for the regular academic year. In order to be self-
supporting, the following was recommended:

Contract for board and room shall be required for
the Summer Sessions, as during the regular year.
The rate shall be $19 per week for both room and
board (room $7 per week; meals $12 for 5-day week,
Monday through Friday).

c) Increased difficulty is encountered in providing housing
for married students and married staff for the Summer
Sessions. To alleviate partially the situation, the
following was recommended:

Lincoln Hall shall be used as quarters for husband
and wife who are students or visiting faculty dur-
ing the Summer Sessions. They shall be tendered
contracts at the rate indicated in item (b) above.
Since the facilities available are not adequate
for the handling of children, it was recommended
that the hall be made available to husband and wife
only.

Motion by Mr. Thompson carried unanimously that the recom-
mendations in (a), (b) and (c), above, be approved.

12. Use of University Facilities

As requested by the Executive Committee of the Regents in
meeting of February 1, 1956, Comptroller Hayden had studied
the matter of requests from outside groups and individuals
for use of University facilities, and presented and dis-
cussed a working criteria for handling such requests.

After general discussion, the matter was laid over for con-
sideration at the Monday, April 30, session of the meeting.

13. Gifts

19. Well - Nevada Southern Campus

The following letter was presented for consideration of the
Board:

March 28, 1956

Board of Regents
University of Nevada
Reno, Nevada

Gentlemen:

The Nevada Southern Campus Fund Drive Committee of Clark
County, at a meeting held March 28, 1956, went on record
in pledging itself to provide a well for the building
to be constructed by the University of Nevada on its
Maryland Parkway site. The Committee has made an agree-
ment to employ Mr. Dale Phelps of the Phelps Pump and
Equipment Company, P. O. Box 1448, Las Vegas, Nevada, to
drill the well, provide pumps and storage tanks accord-
ing to the specifications of the University of Nevada as
approved by the State Planning Board.

We hope that our proposal meets with the approval of the
Board of Regents and the State Planning Board for it
will allow the University more of its funds for the ac-
tual construction of the classroom building. The esti-
mated cost of the well and equipment is approximately
$10,000, and at this writing the Committee has over
$3,000 in cash and pledges from reputable individuals
and firms in Clark County for the additional amount
necessary.

Sincerely,

/s/ R. Guild Gray
Chairman

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the proposal be
accepted.

20. Fund Raising Plan

At 10 A.M. Mr. Selby G. Ostensen of Isom, Ostensen and As-
sociates, Agency for New York Life Insurance Company, at
his request, met with the Regents to explain a plan for a
campaign which would be conducted by his company to sell
life insurance policies naming the University of Nevada as
beneficiary. The insurance plan would provide for sums to
be paid on the policy over a period of time. The funds
would accrue to the University upon maturity of the policy
or non-payment of the premiums and would be set up in a
trust fund controlled by the Board of Regents.

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the necessary
steps be taken to investigate the matter further, that the
plan be submitted to the Attorney General for his opinion,
and that the Regents be given information from other schools
which have used the plan to the results of the campaign and
their reactions to it.

Mr. Ostensen thanked the Regents and left the meeting.

21. Building - Las Vegas Campus

Architects Zick and Sharp met with the Regents at 10:30 A.M.
to discuss the drawings and preliminary floor plans for the
classroom building for the Las Vegas Campus. The plans used
the entire appropriation of $200,000 for the building itself
and for normal classroom furnishings. The architects point-
ed out that it was not possible to include laboratory equip-
ment and to keep within the amount appropriated.

Upon recommendation of Mr. Poolman and Dean Wood, President
Stout recommended approval to the Board of Regents.

Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that the preliminary
plans be approved and submitted to the State Planning Board.

Chairman Ross called attention to the provision for the lay-
ing of a cornerstone by the Grand Lodge of Masonry.

The architects thanked the Regents and left the meeting.

22. Land Application

At the recent emergency session of the Legislature, an
appropriation was made for purchase of land in the West
Charleston Boulevard area near Las Vegas for a Campus site.
Application for one tract consisting of 240 acres needs to
be submitted to the Governor, application for one tract
consisting of 280 acres needs to be submitted to the Bureau
of Land Management - each parcel being available under dif-
ferent conditions.

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the land appli-
cations be filed, in compliance with the request of the
State Legislature, which appropriated money for their
purchase, and that the matter be submitted to the Governor.

23. Heating Plant Alternations

Mr. Poolman, who had studied the University Heating Plant,
and possible installation of the Johnston boiler, report-
ed his findings to the Regents. He submitted 4 approaches
to the problem, but pointed out that in no approach would
the appropriation of $25,000 be sufficient. He recommended
that the existing Johnston boiler be sold and that a new
boiler be purchased and installed, giving the following
reasons (for the Reno Campus):

a) The Johnston boiler was built for a maximum working
pressure of 30 pounds hot water, or 15 pounds steam.
Heating system now operates on 55 pounds hot water.
Installation would require a heat exchanger and oper-
ating on steam, or repiping the system within the
Plant.

b) The Johnston boiler is approximately 4 feet taller than
existing equipment or any comparable equipment which the
University would now purchase. The increased height
would add to the installation costs.

c) The Johnston boiler was intended to be used with coal
stoker feeding. If used for oil firing, it would be
necessary to rebuild the present 30-inch steel base to
give an additional 12 inches in height for proper com-
bustion volume.

d) The smoke outlet on present boilers is at the front of
the boiler and the smokestacks have been arranged to
take advantage of this fact. The smoke outlet in the
Johnston boiler is at the rear of the boiler, thus in-
creasing installation costs.

e) The outlet to the boiler tubes is at the front of the
Johnston boiler. This would necessitate new cleaning
equipment or else the tubes would have to be cleaned
less often because of the difficulty in reaching them.

Upon recommendation by President Stout,

Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the Uni-
versity proceed as follows:

A. Overhaul Existing Kewanee #590 Boiler
Install Induced Draft on Kewanee #590 Boiler
Install Induced Draft on Scotch Marine
Overhaul Circulating Pump
Remove Existing Small Kewanee Boilers
B. Purchase New Kewanee #588 Boiler
C. Sell Johnston Boiler
D. Install Instrumentation
E. Install New Boiler as Funds are Available

24. Use of University Facilities (Continuation of Item 12)

Mr. Hayden presented the following criteria as a working
guide for handling such requests, and the President recom-
mended its adoption:

1. University facilities are reserved for the use of
the use of the University in its education, re-
search and athletic programs.

2. For University sponsored activities.

3. For functions of a Statewide nature.

Motion by Mr. Thompson carried unanimously that these
criteria be approved.

25. Demolishing Victory Heights (Continuation of Item 16)

President Stout reported that he had checked with Dean
Carlson, and that these 5 units will be empty by July 1,
1956.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the bid for
demolishing the 5 units of Victory Heights be awarded to
Joseph Ballinger and Company, the lowest bidder.

26. Bonds

Mr. Hayden asked for authority to dispose of the following
bonds, which have had no value on the market, but which now
are saleable:

1 - $1,000 Republic of Bolivia Bond in David Russell Fund
1 - $5,000 Republic of Chile Bond in David Russell Fund
1 - $7,000 Republic of Chile Bond in David Russell Fund
1 - $ 500 Manhattan Railroad Bond in General Endowment Fund

Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the Comp-
troller be authorized to dispose of the bonds and to invest
the proceeds in government securities.

27. Stanley G. Palmer

President Stout advised that Dean Palmer will be 68 years
of age as of July 1, 1957, and that he has been employed
on a year to year basis as Dean of the College of Engineer-
ing since reaching retirement age (65). President Stout
believed that it is now time to consider his permanent re-
tirement and replacement.

Motion by Mr. Thompson carried unanimously that the Presi-
dent be authorized to advise Dean Palmer that he will be
retired as of July 1, 1957.

Informally, the President was requested to look into the
feasibility of combining the Mining School and the Engineer-
ing College before selecting a new Dean.

The Board went into Executive Session at 11:50 A.M. and returned
to open session at 12 noon.

Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that the salary of Presi-
dent Stout be increased to $17,500 per year, effective July 1,
1956.

President Stout was then notified of the action of the Board.

The meeting adjourned at 12:05 noon.

The next meeting is subject to the call of the Chairman.
