                        April 29, 1922

The Board of Regents, all members present, met in the Office of
President Clark at 10 o'clock Saturday morning, April 29, 1922.
President Clark and Comptroller Gorman were also present.

The minutes of March 31, 1922 were, on motion of Mrs. Hood, ap-
proved by the following vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

On motion of Regent North, List No. 4, Regents Checks Nos. 2025
to 2032 inclusive, for a total of $30,784.69, and List No. 21,
State Claims Nos. 194 to 205 inclusive, for total of $21,354.07,
were approved by the following vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

Comptroller Gorman suggested that it might be well to secure an
abstract of title of the English Mill Ditch.  However, it seems
that such abstract of title would cost $500, so the matter was
passed, understanding, however, that Judge Curler would write to
Mrs. Davis, explaining the rights of the Regents on cleaning
the English Mill Ditch which passes through her property.

Later, some of the water users of this ditch having signified
their willingness to incorporate or to form an association, Mr.
North moved that Director Doten and Judge Talbot should confer
and advise with the Italians so interested.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

President Clark made mention of the scholarship fund bequest of
Judge A. E. Cheney, although the official notice has not yet
been received.

On the recommendation of Professor Wilcox, Acting Head of the
Department of Economics, Business and Sociology, President Clark
recommended the election of John H. Morse to be Instructor in
the Department of Economics, Business and Sociology for the year
beginning September 1, 1922, at a salary of $2400 for the year,
with the understanding that if his work is satisfactory and he
cares to remain, he shall be advanced in rank to an Assistant
Professorship with a salary of $2600 for the year beginning
September 1, 1923.  Mr. North made the motion.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

President Clark recommended that the Regents provide for the
coming year a teaching fellowship in the Department of Chemistry
with the understanding that the person to be elected to that
position shall be a graduate of some College or University, who
specialized in Chemistry during his undergraduate years, who
desires to take advanced work in Chemistry at this University
of Nevada and who will give 1/2 time instruction in Chemistry,
for which instruction time he shall receive $600 compensation
for the University year, and with the further understanding that
if such person comes from outside the State of Nevada, he will
be relieved of tuition charges.  Mr. Pratt made the motion.
Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

President Clark recommended that, in acceptance of the terms
proposed by the Rector and Vestry of the Trinity Episcopal
Church in their letter of April 5, 1922, to President Clark,
the Regents authorize payment from the joint funds of the Pure
Food and Drugs and State Hygienic Laboratory Divisions of $83.33
monthly rental for the Parish House, beginning with May 1, 1922.
Mr. Pratt made the motion.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

On the recommendation of Dr. Henry Albert, Director-Elect of the
State Hygienic Laboratory, President Clark recommended the
election of Miss Helen Gardiner as Laboratory Assistant in
the State Hygienic Laboratory at a salary of $1500 for the year
beginning July 1, 1922.  Mr. Pratt made the motion.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

President Clark made report on his high school visitations to
date.  The high schools visited thus far have been those at
Metropolis, Wells, Elko, Panaca, Las Vegas, Overton, Bunker-
ville, Douglas County at Gardnerville, Fallon, Winnemucca and
Lovelock.  President Clark hopes to be able to visit, before
the end of their terms, several additional high schools in the
State.  He reported the outlook for graduates from these high
schools who are planning to enter the University next Fall as
most encouraging.

Ensued some discussion upon University affairs in general, and
the acceptance of the luncheon invitation from Miss Lewis for
May 16th, after which the Board adjourned, understanding that
the Commencement meeting of the Board will be held at 10 o'clock,
May 16th.
