At the suggestion of Professor Wier, President Clark recommended
the election of Lawrence F. Hill to be Assistant Professor in
the Department of History and Political Science at a salary of
$2200 per annum, both appointment and salary to become effective
September 1, 1921.  Mr. North made the motion.  Vote:

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

President Clark pointed out that it should be clearly understood
that wherever elections occurred with an annual salary named and
with the appointment effective from any given month, say, Septem-
ber 1st, the person so elected would fairly be entitled to re-
ceive an entire year's salary for that year in which he should
at any time later terminate his relationship with the University,
provided only that the termination came without dismissal for
serious fault and, provided further, that the person so elected
should have completed his University work for the entire Uni-
versity year concerned.

At the suggestion of Dr. Records, the President recommended that
the Board adopt the following regulations covering the purchase
of miscellaneous biologics and other supplies from the Serum and
Vaccine Fund:

    Regulation 1.  All shipments shall be made C. O. D., and
                   direct sales shall be for cash only.  Except
                   as hereinafter provided, materials used for
                   immunication purposes or otherwise, where
                   the animals involved are not under quarantine,
                   shall be collected for by the State Quarantine
                   Officer or his representative at the time they
                   are used or delivered to the person in charge.

    Regulation 2.  Where an actual outbreak of disease exists
                   and the animals involved are being held under
                   quarantine, payment for materials used by the
                   State Quarantine Officer or his representa-
                   tives may be deferred for 15 days at the end
                   of which time, if not paid, the charges shall
                   be turned over to the District Attorney of
                   the County for collection as provided by law.

    Regulation 3.  Materials used for the treatment of animals
                   belonging to a Department or Division of the
                   United States, State, County or municpal gov-
                   ernments may be paid for through the regular
                   channels employed by same.

    Regulation 4.  No one is authorized to vary or waive these
                   regulations and the State Quarantine Officer
                   or his representatives will be held financial-
                   ly responsible for any loss arising through
                   ignorance or violation of same.

Judge Talbot moved that the Board adopt the President's recom-
mendation concerning regulations submitted by Dr. Records.  Vote:

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

After some discussion in regard to the alfalfa weevil, Judge
Talbot moved that the Quarantine Officer be directed to make a
survey to determine the extent of this pest and to see within
what limits it was confined and that to do this he was authorized
to employ a man at salary and expenses not to exceed $300.  Vote:

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

President Clark submitted to the Board letter from Mayor Stewart
regarding the willingness of the City of Reno to employ a part
time man connected with the University at a salary of $90 per
month to act as Milk Inspector and plan from Commissioner
Dinsmore whereby his Department could cooperate with the City
to their mutual advantage.  After a general discussion and on
the recommendation of the President, Regent North made the fol-
lowing motion:

    That the Board approve --

    1.  The employment of Wayne B. Adams as Milk Inspector or
        member of the Board of Health of the City of Reno, as the
        City Council may determine, at a salary of $90 per month
        effective from May 1, 1921, with the understanding that
        approximately 1/2 time would be devoted to this milk
        inspection work and that, since the milk inspection work
        would require some early morning and late evening service
        Mr. Adams could still devote to the work of the Depart-
        ment of Pure Foods and Drugs and Weights and Measures
        something more than 1/2 time; that until July 1 Mr.
        Adams' salary shall remain $150 per month and that be-
        ginning July 1, 1921, his salary shall be $175 per month.
        Of these sums it is understood that the City of Reno will
        pay directly to Mr. Adams $90 per month and that for the
        months of May and June University funds will pay the re-
        mainder of his salary of $150 per month, or $60 per month
        and thereafter so long as this arrangement with the City
        remains, $85 per month of Mr. Adams' salary will be paid
        from University funds.

    2.  That from University funds the necessary traveling and
        other expenses of Mr. Adams as Milk Inspector for the
        City of Reno be authorized.

    3.  That Commissioner Dinsmore be authorized to employ some
        young woman to act as clerk and laboratory assistant in
        his Department on full time at a salary of approximately
        $75 per month.  It is understood that such woman labora-
        tory assistant would perform the more simple tests and
        do work which ordinarily would be assigned to Mr. Adams
        and, during the absence of Commissioner Dinsmore and Mr.
        Adams from Reno, would be in charge of the Department.

Vote:

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

As there is not available at this time candidate for permanent
appointment as Director of the State Hygienic Laboratory, on
motion of Regent North, President Clark was authorized to notify
Dr. Alice Thompson that the Board approved for another year,
beginning July 1, 1921, her retention as Acting Director at her
present salary of $250 per month and fees as per original under-
standing with her.  Vote:

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

Judge Talbot reported that Chief Kirkley was willing to deputize
both of our Night Watchmen and Superintendent Lynch as members
of the Police Force of the City of Reno for service on the Uni-
versity grounds.

No further business appearing, the Board adjourned.
