Vote:

    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Mrs. Williams        Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye

On recommendation of Professor Young, President Clark recom-
mended that Mrs. B. F. Chappelle be reappointed 1/2 time Instruc-
tor in Psychology for the University year 1927-28 at her present
rate of pay, namely $1000, for the University year.

On recommendation of Professor Martie, President Clark recommend-
ed that Mr. L. T. Shaw, be reappointed Instructor in the Depart-
ment of Physical Education for Men and Head Coach for football,
for the University year 1927-28, at his present salary of $3000.

Mrs. Williams moved the adoption of the above two Resolutions.
Vote:

    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Mrs. Williams        Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye

President Clark recommended that the following 5 persons, having
satisfactorily served their initial and probationary years, be-
come regular staff members at the indicated increases in salary:

    Edwin J. Duerr, Instructor in English, from $1500 to $1600
    Donald E. Anthony, Instructor in Economics, Business and
        Sociology, from $2000 to $2100
    Roger W. Truesdail, Instructor in Chemistry, from $1800 to
        $2100
    Verrel Weber, Instructor in Physical Education for Women,
        from $1950 to $2100
    Otis J. Mithoug, Instructor in Electrical Engineering, from
        $1800 to $2000

Judge Brown moved the adoption of the President's recommendation.
Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         No
    Mrs. Williams        Aye
    Mr. Pratt            No
    Judge Talbot         No.  I believe that some of these de-
                              serve an increase; but we cannot
                              afford to raise salaries at this
                              time and we should await taking
                              action to see whether there is
                              next Fall an increase in non-
                              resident tuition students or any
                              change in the State tax valua-
                              tions.

Mr. Williams expressed himself as willing to go into the matter
again next Fall after the non-resident, tuition-paying enroll-
ment was known.  After general discussion, and the making and
withdrawal of a motion, Judge Brown moved that the above 5 per-
sons shall be re-elected for the coming University year at their
present salaries and that, if the registration of non-resident,
tuition-paying students is 250 or more at the close of regis-
tration in the Fall of 1927, the increases recommended by the
President for these 5 persons shall take effect as from the
first of August, 1927.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye
    Mrs. Williams        Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye

    Mrs. Williams        Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye

President Clark recommended that Rollin H. Mc Carthy, Assistant
Professor of Mechanical Engineering, be advanced from $2500 to
$2700, effective from August 1, 1927.  Judge Brown moved that
Mr. Mc Carthy's raise be contingent upon the Fall enrollment of
250 or more non-resident, tuition-paying students.  Vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye

Shaver to be 1/2 time Instructor in the Department of Classics
for the next University year at a stipend of $800 for 7 or 8
periods per week, with understanding that she shall teach either
first-year English or first-year Spanish if the Latin enrollment
in either course to be given during the absence of Dr. Church is

It is understood that the President is to get the word to Mr.
Wagner to make the proper heating pipe connection with the
sewer at the east side of the new Library and then to have
Professor Boardman give Mr. Lynch's men the proper lines for
the staightening of the road from the roadway to the north of
the new Library to the bridge over the Orr Ditch.  This im-
provement is to come from general University funds.

Mr. Pratt suggested that two supports to the balcony in the
Mining building be painted at once and that the removable posts
bearing the chain handrail on the stairs leading to the basement
should be made solid, since as a safety device movable posts
were negligible factors.

Judge Talbot moved that the Student Affairs Committee make
investigation into the facts regarding the alleged offense of
Loran Pease and Julius Molina as reported in the Nevada State

at its next meeting and make recommendations at their discre-
tion to the Board as to the course which the Board should pursue.
