Regarding land acquisition, President Armstrong pointed out

that the land exchange (at the Nevada Southern Campus) was

approved by the Legislature as well as additional land pur-

chase at Nevada Southern. It was agreed that the exchange

with the Episcopal Church should be given priority.



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

unanimously that the Administration be authorized to pro-

ceed on the exchange with the Trinity Episcopal Church, and

then to proceed with whatever other property can be purchas-

ed within the legislative act, but that no property be ex-

changed except the Church property.



5. Playing Field, Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers asked for approval to proceed with a chain link

fence around the playing field in Las Vegas, which consti-

tutes a change in scope of original plan, and consequently

Regents' approval is requested by the Planning Board. Money

has been appropriated and is available.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Dr. White, carried

unanimously that the Administration be authorized to pro-

ceed with the chain link fence, as requested.



6. Main Station Farm



Mr. Rogers showed by drawings the completed first phase

of remodeling that portion of the Main Station Farm, and

also the second phase of the plan, which was included in

the overall development program of the Main Station Farm.

He recalled that the plan was spread over a five-year per-

iod, and that we are now ready for phase number two, which

would consist of an addition to the Dairy Unit which would

include the construction of general cow unit, a bull unit,

and hay and equipment storage.



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

unanimously that the President be authorized to sign the

necessary documents to proceed with phase number two of the

development program of the Dairy Unit.



7. Traffic and Parking



President Armstrong presented the following recommendation

of the Traffic and Parking Sub-Committee with his recommen-

dation for approval:



"That a policy be adopted which will authorize the

Administration of the University of Nevada to charge

for parking in designated areas. All funds received

from such parking will be used to improve the parking

and traffic situation. A pilot program would provide

an assigned area to Dormitory students who wish to

reserve parking east of White Pine Hall. The charge

would be $10 per student per semester."



Mr. Rogers and President Armstrong discussed the recommen-

dation. Some students living in Lincoln Hall had requested

an assigned spot for parking, and are willing to pay for

it. The Administration would like to use the present plan

as a trial, to see how it works out, before extending it to

other areas.



Mr. Germain believed the proposal is another instance of

controlling the students and therefore opposed it. Mr.

Rogers explained that there will still be free unassigned

parking space available near Lincoln Hall which can be

used by students who do not wish to pay for assigned park-

ing space. The present plan is to assign only 28 out of

70 available spaces.



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

with Regents Germain and White voting "no" and all other

Regents voting "aye" that the parking project be approved.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unani-

mously that the personnel recommendations be approved.



The Board asked that, in the letter to Mr. Dankworth, he be

told of the high regard the Regents have for him.



Dr. Armstrong presented a recommendation from Dean Irwin to

make slight upward adjustments in the 1963-64 salaries of

Professors Stanley A. Pearl and Larry L. Pippin of Political

Science, in order to overcome an inequity in Dean Irwin's

original recommendation, which was based on incomplete evi-

dence of merit factors which were subsequently brought to

his attention by the Department Chairman.



Dr. Armstrong recommended that the salaries of these two

individuals for 1963-64 be set at $6890 each, representing

a 6% increase.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried unani-

mously that the above salaries for Mr. Pearl and Mr. Pippin

be approved.



12. Working Budget for 1963-64



Copies of the budget had previously been mailed to the

Regents. Dr. Armstrong discussed the budget, which was pre-

pared from budget materials submitted by the Deans in which

they indicated priority items. In the budget here present-

ed, high priority has been given to new positions to meet

increased enrollment. Appropriation for Social Security

was not received, but there was liberalization in the re-

tirement program. The President doubted that any of the

new Ph. D. programs already approved can be implemented

immediately.



Priority has had to be given to new positions in order to

provide for new baccalaureate programs at Nevada Southern

and to meet expected enrollment increases on the Reno Cam-

pus, especially in the College of Arts and Science. In-

cluded are 23 new professional positions, of which 10 are

at Nevada Southern, 2 Graduate Assistants, 4 Technicians

and 27 classified positions. Of these 56 positions, 19

are at Nevada Southern.



No travel money is provided for new faculty and the formula

for existing faculty has been cut 25%. The operating ac-

counts are, for the most part, held at the 1962-63 level.



Dr. Armstrong pointed out that the budget is for the first

year of the biennium only. The budget for the second year

will be presented not later than January 1964. The in-

crease then will be relatively small, so that not many new

positions can be added.



President Armstrong recommended approval of the working

budget.



Dr. Lombardi discussed the proposal to pledge income for

bonding of capital improvements on both Campuses. It was

brought out in the discussion that the Ways and Means Com-

mittee was interested, but that the Senate Finance Commit-

tee was not. Dr. Lombardi commented however, that it is

the operating budget cuts which really limit the Univer-

sity's operation. A building is of no use without staff,

furniture, and money for general upkeep.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

unanimously that the working budget for 1963-64 be approved

as presented.



13. Reserve for Contingencies



President Armstrong explained that any expenditures requir-

ing large sums had been postponed until a study could be

made to determine how much would be available for emergency

assistance and where it could best be used. It is necessary

that some expenditures be made now to take care of certain

items deleted from the regular budget. President Armstrong

recommended the following utilization of the 1962-63 Reserve

for Contingencies:



1. $6200 to Central Office Services, Reno, to purchase a

multilith ($3200), a photo-direct machine for use with

equipment for years and I recommend that improvement

be effected now.

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

by roll call vote that the utilization of the 1962-63

14. Dormitory-Dining Facility, Nevada Southern



Mr. Grant asked about progress in studying the Dormitory-

Dining facility at Las Vegas, and also asked how rapidly

the project can go forward. Mr. Rogers discussed the mat-

ter, saying that the Governor has now signed the Bill for

permissive bonding legislation and that the Bill is ef-

fective upon approval, so that the University can proceed.

In accord with the legislative act, the University can in-

vite the State Planning Board to work with it.



15. Dormitories, Reno Campus



Mr. Grant brought up the subject of Dormitories to go on

the Catholic Church property in Reno. Mr. Rogers reported

that the application had been approved by HHFA, and he is

working on preliminary plans, which will be presented to

the President for submission to the Board. The architect

has been retained.



16. Radiological Laboratory Building



President Armstrong presented the recommendation of Mr.

Humphrey who had been requested to study the matter and to

make recommendations, as follows:



The University will soon be faced with the responsibil-

ity of:



(1) entering into a lease with the General Services

Administration



(2) marketing up to $2 million of revenue bonds



(3) construction of a building on the Nevada Southern

Campus for occupancy by the Radiological Health

Division of the Federal Department of Health, Ed-

ucation and Welfare.



I recommend that we retain Edward L. Burton & Co. of

Salt Lake City to serve as financial advisors for the

marketing of the bonds and negotiating the lease.

Edward L. Burton & Co. is a highly regarded company

and has handled a number of Nevada issues. Their fee

of 1.25% is, I understand, typical for revenue bond

issues (general obligation issues are less) and the

fee will be chargeable to the bond sale proceeds.



President Armstrong recommended approval.



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

unanimously that the recommendation be approved, and that

Edward L. Burton and Company be retained.



17. Fund Raising



Mr. Hug discussed the inability of the University to get

the money it needs to carry out its program. He suggested

that an effort be made to try to find money to employ an

individual to check sources of funds from Foundations and

also to look into the possibility of raising money through-

out the State. President Armstrong agreed that if such an

individual could be found, he would be well worth hiring,

and that his salary could come from the Contingency Reserve.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried unani-

mously that, if a suitable man can be found and if the

money for salary can be found, such a man as he proposed

be employed.



18. State Legislature



Discussion took place as to what, if anything, the Regents

should do to protest the cuts in the budget effected by the

State Legislature. A booklet was suggested showing exactly

what, in the University program, had to be dropped because

of the cut in funds. It was agreed informally that further

thought be given the matter. Regent Germain suggested that

the University should map a program in the next few months

to urge the voters to elect the type of person who can best

represent them in the area of University needs.



19. Next Meeting



The next meeting of the Board was set for Saturday, June 1,

1963, in Reno.



The meeting adjourned at 11:35 A.M.
