                 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING
                       April 28, 1955

The Executive Committee of the Board of Regents met for a
luncheon meeting in the Riverside Hotel at noon on Thursday,
April 28, 1955.  Present:  Regents Hardy, Lombardi, Thompson,
Ross; Comptroller Hayden and President Stout.  The meeting
was called to order by Chairman Ross at 1:15 P.M.

Building Program

    President Stout discussed his recommendations for remodeling
    Hatch Station and the Extension building.  The President
    recommended that the remodeling of the Extension building
    be planned first, using what remains in the fund provided
    by the Legislature for remodeling the Hatch Station.

    Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the building
    program as presented for the two buildings, Hatch and Exten-
    sion, be accepted as a general working plan, with the excep-
    tion of a basement indicated in the new portion of the Ex-
    tension building; and that the President and any members of
    the Board who are free to go, attend the meeting of the State
    Planning Board on April 29.

    By consensus it was agreed that the President's residence is
    to be moved from the Campus.  Mr. Ross accepted the Chair-
    manship of a committee of the whole to study disposition
    of the present building and the acquisition of other quarters
    for the President.

Fee Schedule

    President Stout presented the recommendation of the Fee Study
    Committee, as approved by the Administrative Committee and
    recommended its adoption.

    Motion by Mr. Thompson carried unanimously that the Fee
    Schedule as follows be adopted, effective September 1, 1955:

        1.  That a new consolidated fee schedule for matriculated
            undergraduate students be established to include
            (a) a basic registration and course fee, and (b) an
            incidental fee; the consolidated fee to be set at
            $65 per semester for all regularly enrolled day stu-
            dents carrying 7 or more credits.  The consolidated
            fee is to be subject to review following registration
            for the Spring semester, 1956.

            The single consolidated fee would eliminate all
            existing course fees (laboratory and materials) with
            the following exceptions:  (a) elective courses re-
            quiring equipment, facilities or materials not avail-
            able on the University Campus, for example, bowling,
            golf or swimming; and (b) personal expenses of stu-
            dents incurred in connection with field trips.

            The basic registration and course fee, including
            Library fee, would be $38.

            The incidental fee, totaling $27, would include the
            health fee ($8), the ASUN fee ($14) and the Student
            Union fee ($5).

        2.  Non-matriculated and matriculated day students carry-
            ing fewer than 7 credits would be charged fees at
            the rate of $10 per credit.

            Such students would not be required to pay the ASUN,
            the health service or the Student Union fee, but they
            might avail themselves of the services provided by
            payment of these fees.

        3.  A fee of $50 per semester would be charged all gradu-
            ate day students who are residents of Nevada.

            Graduate students would not be required to pay the
            ASUN, the health service or the Student Union fee,
            but they might avail themselves of the services pro-
            vided by payment of these fees.

        4.  The out-of-state tuition charge would be set at
            $135 per semester.

        5.  That a substantial number of additional scholarship
            opportunities be made available by the Board of
            Regents to worthy and deserving out-of-state stu-
            dents from communities adjacent to the Nevada State
            line.

Harold's Club Scholarships

    It was noted that these scholarships are being discontinued
    by Mr. Raymond I. Smith.  It was agreed, by consensus, that
    the Regents go on record as recognizing the benefits of the
    Harold's Club Scholarships to students at the University,
    and that the Secretary write a letter of appreciation to Mr.
    Smith, on behalf of the Board, for these scholarships.

The meeting adjourned at 2:45 P.M.
