To the Editor:

    The University authorities would greatly appreciate your
    kindness if you would be so good as to publish the above
    notice in your paper as a news item.

                             Very truly yours,

                             J. E. Stubbs
                             President

I wish to submit to the Regents the following suggestion:

The University of Nevada has reached a period in its growth
when the details of its business management should be placed in
the hands of some man who is well-fitted for it.  This business
manager should be known by the name of The Registrar of the
University.

Among the duties of the Registrar are:

1.  He shall be responsible for the care of the records of the
    students.

2.  He shall be the official medium of communication between the
    students and the administrative and academic committees.

3.  He shall prepare, subject to the approval of the President
    and the Committee on Publications, all publications of of-
    ficial communication of the University, such as the Regis-
    trar, Bulletins, Directory, etc.

4.  He shall have control of such clerical assistants as are
    necessary for the academic work of the University.

5.  He shall conduct such a bureau of information as is neces-
    sary for the academic work of the University.

6.  He shall be Secretary of the Council and shall keep a record
    of its proceedings.

7.  He shall take charge of the Business Office of the University
    under the direction of the President, and shall keep the
    books and do such other work as may be necessary and will
    meet the public in a manner that will attract them to the
    University.

8.  He shall hold the rank of an Assistant Professor in the Uni-
    versity for two years; and after that, if satisfactory, he
    shall hold the rank of an Associate Professor; and at the
    end of five years, he shall hold the rank of Full Professor
    in the University.  He shall be a member of the Academic
    Council.

I think the Board of Regents feels that the time is coming when
it is to the best interests of the University to relieve the
President of the detail work, that he may give more time and
attention to the larger problems that are connected with the
management of an institution like ours, and I have been looking
the field over, with care, to obtain a man that seemed suitable
to me in every way, and after obtaining the fullest information,
I believe that Mr. Charles Henry Gorman of Eureka, is the kind
of a man we want, and I herewith nominate to the Board for elec-
tion to the position of Registrar, Mr. Gorman, making the date of
the appointment May first, 1911.

                             Very respectfully yours,

                             J. E. Stubbs
                             President

On motion of Dr. Reid, seconded by Mr. O'Brien, Mr. Charles Henry
Gorman was elected to the office of Registrar, which office in-
cludes the general business management of the office, under the
direction of the President of the University.  He shall be paid
a salary of one hundred and twenty five dollars per month from
May first, 1911, and one hundred and fifty dollars per month
after the first six months.

On motion of Dr. Reid, seconded by Mr. O'Brien, the Commencement
Program of the President as submitted, with such changes as he
might make, was approved.

On motion, duly seconded, the badges to be worn by all the stu-
dents, Regents, faculty and guests are hereby approved.

    Emily Berry               100 per month    1200 per year

    Dr. George Ordahl         200 per month    2400 per year

On motion, duly seconded, all payrolls and all claims submitted
were approved as given in the President's report.

On motion of Mr. O'Brien, seconded by Dr. Reid, Dr. H. E. Reid
was elected Acting Chairman of the Board of Regents and the
Board of Control.

On motion of Dr. Reid, seconded by Mr. O'Brien, the Secretary
of the Board of Regents was instructed to have the policy of
insurance for two thousand dollars now on the Grandstand trans-
ferred to the Library.

No further business, the meeting adjourned, to meet at the call
of the Chairman.
