4. Report of Investment Advisory Committee Meeting of April 9,

1965



In the absence of Dr. Lombardi, President Armstrong present-

ed the minutes of the Investment Advisory Committee meeting

of April 9, as follows:



The Committee met at 12:00 noon in the Hardy Room, Jot

Travis Student Union. Present were: Public member, Mr.

Julius Bergen; Board members, Dr. Fred M. Anderson, Dr.

Louis Lombardi and Mrs. Molly Magee; staff present,

President Charles J. Armstrong and Neil D. Humphrey,

Vice President-Finance. Representing the First National

Bank of Nevada was Mr. R. O. Kwapil, Vice President and

Sr. Trust Officer.



Dr. Lombardi, Chairman, presided.



A review of the portfolio had been mailed by the Trust

Department April 5 to all members. It was noted the

portfolio review did not include the projected income

of U. S. Treasury Bills and, therefore, gave an in-

complete picture of current earnings.



The reasons for sale of stocks during the past few

months were discussed. Mr. Kwapil recommended that no

change be made in the portfolio at this time. It was

agreed to follow this advice.



Mr. Kwapil said that he would distribute a review of the

stocks sold during the past few months to show what the

portfolio position would be if these stocks had not been

sold. It was agreed that this would be of interest.



The Committee agreed to meet every three months. The

next meeting was set for noon, Friday, July 9, 1965,

in the Hardy Room.



Upon inquiry of Mr. Kwapil it was agreed that in emer-

gencies between meetings the Committee could be polled.

It was noted that to conform to the new By-Laws of the

Board of Regents a vote of at least two Board members

on the Committee is required for offical action of the

Committee.



Meeting adjourned at 1:15 P.M.



Neil D. Humphrey

Acting Secretary



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

unanimously that the report of the Investment Advisory

Committee be accepted.



5. Report of the Plant and Property Committee Meeting of May 7,

1965



Mr. Jacobsen presented the minutes of the meeting as fol-

lows:



The Plant and Property Committee met in Room 105, Frazier

Hall, Nevada Southern Campus, on Friday, May 7, 1965. Pres-

ent: Regents Anderson, Grant, Hug, Jacobsen, Magee; Presi-

dent Armstrong, Dr. Donald Moyer, Mr. Humphrey, Mr. Rogers

and Mr. Hancock. Mr. James Mc Daniel and Mr. Frank Young

were present for portion of the meeting. Regent Rozone

entered the meeting at 10:30 A.M.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Jacobsen at

9:15 A.M.



1. Exterior Design and Treatment of Library Building

Addition, Nevada Southern University Campus



Mr. Rogers introduced to the Committee, Mr. James Mc

Daniel, the architect who has been selected to ac-

complish the design for the two additonal floors of

the Nevada Southern Campus Library. Mr. Mc Daniel

presented a drawing of the exterior treatment of the

Library, pointing out that the plans are incomplete.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried

without dissenting vote that further discussion or

action be delayed until the exterior plans are more

fully developed.



2. President Armstrong introduced Mr. Frank Young of

Edgerton, Germeshausen and Grier. Mr. Young informed

the Committee of a report recently received outlining

AEC's billion dollar blueprint for expansion of the

nation's high-energy physics research between now and

the early 1980's, recently issued by the Joint Com-

mittee on Atomic Energy. Major recommendations of the

AEC report: Immediate authorization of a 200-Bev al-

ternating gradient synchorotron (AGS), authorization

in FY-71 of a 600-1,000 Bev proton accelerator, and

conversion to higher energies of present machines at

Brookhaven and Argonne. Mr. Young advised the Com-

mittee that the site selection for the accelerator

would be made during this calendar year. The material

presented to the Committee included the following cri-

teria for a desirable site: (1) Contain at least

3000 acres owned by or reasonably available to the

U. S. Government; (2) Have the potential of deliver-

ing a firm electric power load of several hundred mega-

watts and a minimum of 2000 gallons a minute of high

quality water; (3) Be reasonably close to a commercial

and industrial center which includes research and de-

velopment activities; and (4) Be reasonably close to

communities having adequate housing, cultural and edu-

cational facilities for some 2000 scientific and tech-

nical personnel and their families. Also, the site

should be close to adequate surface transportation

systems and a major airport with frequent service to

major U. S. cities. Mr. Young pointed out the interest

that Southern Nevada Industrial Foundation has express-

ed in this project and the possibility of attracting

such a project to the Eldorado Valley area. After

much discussion by the Committee, it was suggested by

President Armstrong that the potential growth of both

Campuses of the University of Nevada warranted the

justification of some positive support by the Board

of Regents in a cooperative effort to attract this

project to Southern Nevada.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board that the President be authorized to draft a

statement outlining the interest of the University of

Nevada in this project, to be made available to Mr.

Young for use by the Southern Nevada Industrial Founda-

tion.



3. Physical Sciences Project Design, Reno Campus



The Planning Board has informed the University Engi-

neer's Office that approxiamtely $145,000 remains in

the design fund. The Planning Board would like a

decision as to whether or not the Physical Science

Project is to remain at the top of the University's

priority list for consideration by the 1967 Legisla-

ture. If so, the Planning Board will hold these funds

to accomplish the design of the project if funded by

the 1967 Legislature; if it is not to be retained as a

high priority item, the funds will be reverted.



Mr. Rogers recommended to the Committee that the Plan-

ning Board be requested to use the fund to proceed

immediately with the design of the Physical Sciences

Project. Mr. Humphrey suggested that the Board of

Regents request a special meeting with the Planning

Board, or its Executive Committee, to urge them to

proceed to design the Physical Sciences Project so

that construction can start when funded in 1967.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board that the Planning Board be assured that the

Physical Sciences Project remains at the top of the

priority list and that the Board seek a meeting with

the entire Planning Board to urge the use of the re-

maining design funds for the accomplishment of the

design of the Physical Sciences Project prior to the

1967 Legislative Session. It was further recommended

that the individual members of the Planning Board be

contacted prior to their scheduled meeting in Septem-

ber and informed of the intent of the Board of Regents.



4. Sprinkler System, Social Science Project, Nevada South-

ern University Campus



A sprinkler system is required to irrigate the land-

scaping at this project but is not included in funds

available for the project.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board that the Planning Board be requested to fund

the cost in the amount of $9797 from the Site Develop-

ment and Utilities Appropriation.



5. Water Rights, Land Purchased from Capurro Family



The deeds conveying the Capurro property to the Uni-

versity made no mention of water rights. Failure to

reserve these water rights in the deed document auto-

matically transfers these rights to the buyer. Mr.

Capurro has requested that the Board of Regents con-

sider returning these rights to him.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissenting vote that Mr. Capurro's request not be

granted.



6. Anelli Property Purchase



The 1965 Legislature authorized the sale of General

Obligation Bonds after July 1, 1965 in the amount of

$135,000 to purchase approximately 22.5 acres of

property lying immediately north of the present Reno

Campus. The Planning Board Manager reported that the

Anelli family has signed a commitment to sell to the

University approximately 22.5 acres at $6000 per acre

when the estate is settled and they gain title to the

property.



7. Mr. Rogers reported to the Committee concerning a meet-

ing with the Regional Planning Commission on general

development plans for areas immediatley surrounding the

Reno Campus. He advised the Committee that further

action has been delayed until the Board of Regents have

had an opportunity to study the proposed Master Plan.

He recommended that the Plant and Property Committee

make an early effort to meet with the Regional Planning

Commission to better evaluate its position in relation

to the proposed re-zoning of certain areas.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the Plant and Property Commit-

tee be authorized to communicate with the Regional

Planning Commission for the purpose of evaluating the

possible effect of proposed re-zoning of land adjacent

to and near the Reno Campus.



8. Mr. Rogers reported to the Committee the recent devel-

opments concerning the extension of Oddie Blvd. The

Regional Planning Commission and the County Commis-

sioners are asking support of the Board of Regents in

urging the State Highway Department to proceed with

the extension of Oddie Blvd.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried with-

out dissenting vote that a letter from the Regents be

sent to the State Highway Department urging them to

proceed with the extension of Oddie Blvd, and that a

copy of the letter be furnished to the County Commis-

sioners.



9. Mr. Rogers presented a request he had received from

Sierra Pacific Power Company for an easement to enable

them to move a power line, which now follows the road

to the Atmospherium-Planetarium, to an area above the

Dairy Barns. Mr. Rogers was instructed by the Commit-

tee to seek an agreement with the Power Company that

would place the power line underground. Mr. Hancock

pointed out that a precedent exists in the Capitol

Complex whereby all utilities are now placed under-

ground by the Power Company.



10. Mr. Humphrey presented a map showing the land acquisi-

tion plan for Nevada Southern and discussed a meeting

which he and Mr. Hancock, Mr. Rogers and Mr. Hug had

attended with the University Land Company for the pur-

pose of discussing the possibilities of effecting a

trade of certain parcels of land. Mr. Humphrey rec-

ommended that an appraisal of these parcels of land

be updated and the University Administration talk

privately with Legislators to determine if the Uni-

versity would be placing itself in a difficult posi-

tion by seeking to go below the line prescribed by

the Legislature for acquiring property. He recommend-

ed the results of these actions be presented to the

Committee at their next meeting.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried

without dissenting vote, that (1) The Committee rec-

ommend to the Board that updating of appraisals of

land be obtained and (2) The Administration negotiate

for the best deal possible to make a trade of the land

on Flamingo for certain parcels south of the Campus

boundary.



11. School of Nursing Building, Reno Campus



Mr. Rogers presented a map of the Reno Campus showing

the recommended location for the proposed School of

Nursing building.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the site as proposed by the

Administration be recommended to the Board of Regents

for the location of the School of Nursing building.



Mr. Humphrey reported to the Committee on a conver-

sation with the Public Health Service concerning the

grant for the Nursing building. He explained that he

had asked for a 90-day extension of the deadline estab-

lished for the granting of a construction contract but

had received word that no more than a 30-day extension

could be granted. Because of the urgency, it was

agreed by consensus that the selected design architect

be informed of the time limit and if he could not com-

ply, then another architect should be selected. Mr.

Hancock agreed to immediately inform the architect

of the Committee's decision and report back later in

the afternoon. (See item 11a below.)



12. Nevada Southern University Campus Landscaping



The Planning Board has been furnished a scope of work

to guide a landscape architect in the development of

a Master Plan for the landscaping of Nevada Southern

Campus. Mr. Hancock recommended to the Committee

three potential consultants to accomplish the work.

It was agreed by consensus that a final decision on

the recommendation to the Board of a consultant be

deferred until Mr. Hancock and Mr. Rogers had kept a

planned appointment with one of the recommended land-

scape architects. (See item 12a below.)



The meeting adjourned at 10:55 A.M. and the Committee de-

parted for a tour of the Logandale Experiment Station.



The Plant and Property Committee meeting reconvened at

4:30 P.M.



11a. Mr. Hancock spoke of his contact with the architect,

Mr. Parsons, for the School of Nursing building and

reported that the architect expressed confidence that

he could accomplish the design of the project in time

to meet the deadline. Mr. Parsons stated, however,

that to do so he must have the complete cooperation of

the University, the State Planning Board and the School

of Nursing facility.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board that Mr. Parsons be requested to proceed

with the design of the Nursing building in order to

comply with the deadline of August 25, and that the

School of Nursing faculty be informed of the importance

of being available for consulting at Mr. Parson's con-

venience.



Mr. Hancock explained to the Committee that there was

no money available to the Planning Board with which to

initiate a design contract with the architect before

July 1, 1965 and asked if the University would be wil-

ling to guarantee the money so that a contract could be

drawn immediately. It was agreed by consensus that

this action was appropriate and satisfactory.



12.a Mr. Hancock reported on his contact with the landscape

architect and recommended to the Committee that Mr.

Robert C. Smutzer be retained to prepare the Master

Plan for the landscaping of Nevada Southern Univer-

sity.



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board that Mr. Smutzer be retained to prepare the

Master Plan for landscaping of Nevada Southern Univer-

sity Campus.



13. Mr. Jacobsen read to the Committee the following

letter:



May 4, 1965



Mr. Harold Jacobsen

205 N. Carson

Carson City, Nevada



Dear Mr. Jacobsen:



As a member of the Board of Regents of the University

of Nevada, I would like to call your attention to the

fact that up to the present time the University of

Nevada has failed to comply with its agreement with me

at the time the 60 acres of land was conveyed to the

University of Nevada by us for Nevada Southern Univer-

sity. The Board of Regents and President Stout agreed

that one of the first buildings on Nevada Southern

Campus would be named after my mother, Anita Julia

Cornish, and that a later building would be named

either for Mr. Wilbourn or myself.



I have discussed this with Mr. Grant, the former Chair-

man, and he assured me this would be properly taken

care of but as you know up to the present time there

are only two buildings named - "Maude Frazier Hall" and

"Archie C. Grant Hall".



My main interest is that a building be named after my

mother as was originally agreed upon and I would ap-

preciate any effort you may wish to make to see that

this is done in the near future. As you will recall,

the 60 acre gift to the University was given in memor-

iam for her.



I understand there are several new buildings nearing

completion which are at present unnamed.



Sincerely yours,



/s/ Estelle M. Wilbourn



The Committee instructed the Secretary to the Board to

research the minutes of the Regents' meetings to deter-

mine the action of the Board at the time of the land

transaction and report back to the Board at its next

meeting.



The meeting adjourned at 4:45 P.M.



Action by the Board:



Item #1 No action required.



Item #2 Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Davis,

carried unanimously that the action of the Com-

mittee become the action of the Board.



Item #3 Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. White,

carried unanimously that the action of the Com-

mittee become the action of the Board.



Item #4 Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. White,

carried unanimously that the action of the Com-

mittee become the action of the Board.



Item #5 Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Grant,

carried unanimously that the action of the Com-

mittee become the action of the Board.



Item #6 Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen,

carried unanimously that since no action was

required the Board accept the report of the

Committee.



Item #7 Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone,

carried unanimously that the action of the Com-

mittee become the action of the Board.



Item #8 Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug,

carried unanimously that the action of the Com-

mittee become the action of the Board.



Item #9 Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Davis,

carried unanimously that the Board endorse the

action of the Committee with the understanding

that, if the Sierra Pacific Power Company will

not place the power line underground, further

study of the location should be made before an

easement is granted. It was also the consensus

of the Board that a University policy should be

formulated governing future installation of

utilities on both Campuses.



Item #10 Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, car-

ried unanimously that the action of the Committee

become the action of the Board.



Item #11 Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Grant,

carried unanimously that the location of the

School of Nursing building as recommended by the

Administration (east of Mackay Science building)

be approved.



Item #lla Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone,

carried unanimously that the architect be re-

quested to proceed with the design of the School

of Nursing building in order to comply with the

deadline of August 25 and that the School of

Nursing faculty be informed of the importance of

being available for consulting.



Items #12 and #12a

Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Davis,

carried unanimously that the action of the Com-

mittee become the action of the Board.



Item #13 Chairman Anderson recommended that a letter ac-

knowledging receipt of Mrs. Wilbourn's letter be

sent by the Administration and further recommend-

ed the Board delay further discussion of the mat-

ter until the Secretary submits a report on earli-

er action of the Board concerning land transac-

tion.



President Armstrong informed the Board that, in all proba-

bility, bids on the Nevada Southern Dormitory and Dining

Facility would be reviewed and ready for award late in June

but the Board will not meet until late July. He therefore

recommended that the Board of Regents authorize the Plant

and Property Committee to award a contract on behalf of the

Board of Regents for the construction of a Dormitory and

Dining Hall at NSU.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. White, carried

unanimously that the President's recommendation be approved

and the Plant and Property Committee be so authorized.



6. Report of the Educational Policies Committee Meeting of

May 7, 1965



Dr. White presented the minutes of the Committee meeting

as follows:



A meeting of the Educational Policies Committee was held on

May 7, 1965 in Room 105, Frazier Hall, on the Nevada South-

ern Campus. Present: Regents Anderson, Hug, Jacobsen,

Magee, Ronzone and White; President Armstrong, Dr. Moyer,

Mr. Humphrey. Also present were Dr. Orleans, Dr. Adams,

Mr. Norton and Miss Parks of the Nevada Southern staff and

faculty.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman White at 2:30

P.M.



1. Class A Action Concerning Special Students



Action on this item had been deferred until this meeting

so that members of the Nevada Southern faculty might

have an opportunity to present their viewpoints to the

Committee. The following report had been distributed

to the Committee for their information:



Minority Report Concerning Proposed Suspension

of Special Students



At its March meeting, the Nevada Southern faculty in-

structed the Chairman of the Academic Standards Commit-

tee to file with the Board of Regents a minority re-

port expressing the opposition of this faculty to the

proposed change in University regulations which would

result in the suspension of special students. This

proposed regulation has had the consistent and unified

opposition of the Nevada Southern Division Council,

Committee, University Council Representatives, and

faculty. We request your consideration of the follow-

ing points:



1. The proposed change in regulations was originally

suggested by a member of the Reno faculty, with

reference to a problem on the Reno Campus, to have

certain effects on that Campus.



2. No such motivating problem exists on the Las Vegas

Campus. We are agreed that the present system is

functioning successfully.



3. We do, however, foresee the possibility of serious

public relations problems in Las Vegas, affecting,

not the few students who would be suspended under

the new regulations, but those numerous special

students in good standing whose attendance at Nevada

Southern would be made more difficult and complicat-

ed as a result of the new University attitude and

new regulations. We urge your investigation of such

problems, which, in our opinion, could not be pre-

vented by merely informing the public of the change

in University regulations and attitude.



4. We would like to point out significant differences

between the Las Vegas Campus and the Reno Campus:

The Reno Campus stands in a different relation to

its community than does the Las Vegas Campus. (The

proposed regulations were not suggested for Reno

10 years ago.) It is our opinion that the Nevada

Southern special students probably represent a dif-

ferent segment of our community than do those at

Reno and stand in a different relationship to the

Campus. (Las Vegas, having practically no alumni,

recognizes the special students as a concerned and

interested link with the community.) The proposed

regulations would, on the Las Vegas Campus, prob-

ably have effects which they would not have on the

Reno Campus; i. e., the regulations would affect a

different group of students, in a different way,

with different repercussions.



5. We do not feel that procedural considerations should

in any way determine policy, but our Office of Ad-

missions and our Registrar's Office have expressed

concern over the great waste involved in instituting

expensive regulations which would have no foresee-

able advantageous effects on this Campus -- only

disadvantageous effects.



6. It is the opinion of the Nevada Southern faculty

that the proposed change in regulations and phi-

losophy is not needed on this Campus: it would

have a disadvantageous effect, not originally

anticipated, on an important segment of our com-

munity; it would affect a group of students dif-

ferent from those originally intended; it would

create problems where none now exist; it would

not be worth the expenditure of time, money and

effort it would require; and it would result in

a philosophic attitude toward townspersons which

is not acceptable to the members of this faculty.



/s/ Charles L. Adams

Chairman

Academic Standards Committee for the

Nevada Southern Faculty



In the discussion which followed, Dr. Orleans spoke of

the problems faced by Nevada Southern concerning special

students as they differ from those problems encountered

on the Reno Campus. In addition to the "public rela-

tions" factor, the faculty and staff are concerned with

the additional burden of record keeping imposed by the

adoption of the new regulations. Miss Parks pointed out

that all potential students would have to be informed of

the regulation and records would have to be kept on each

special student at the University to determine who the

small percentage were who would be affected by the sus-

pension rule. Mr. Norton pointed out, also, that con-

trols are already available to the individual faculty

member who is now responsible for deciding who will or

will not be admitted to special student classification.



Mrs. Magee expressed some concern over the projected

growth of the enrollment at both NSU and Reno and its

ultimate effect on special students, questioning whether

delay in implementing these regulations would perhaps

make the problem more severe when the enrollment in-

creases.



President Armstrong pointed out that the Administra-

tion's and the Regents' chief concern is that the same

regulation should be applied to all students. He also

pointed out that policy should not be determined by

mechanics.



It was suggested by Mrs. Magee that perhaps the Regents

would benefit by asking Dr. Moyer for a recommendation

of the matter after he has had an opportunity to study

the special student situation. It was agreed by con-

sensus that final action on this proposal be delayed

pending a report and recommendation from Dr. Moyer,

hopefully at the meeting in July.



Because of lack of time, the remaining items on the agenda

were postponed until the next meeting of the Committee in

June.



The meeting adjourned at 3:25 P.M.



There was no action by the Board. However, in the discus-

sion concerning the report of the Committee, the members

agreed that should such a ruling be imposed, the intent

would be to make the transition to the new regulation grad-

ually, perhaps not become effective before the Fall of 1966,

and in no case would the penalty be imposed retroactively.

by Mr. Humphrey, be adopted:



RESOLUTION NO. 65-9



WHEREAS, Resolution No. 65-2 authorized the issuance

and sale of $2,000,000 par University of Nevada, Nevada

Southern Science Building Revenue Certificate, Series

April 1, 1965, 3% bonds due serially; and



WHEREAS, as provided by Resolution No. 65-2, and as

provided on the face of the bond, that registration

as to principal shall be made by the Treasurer of the

University at Reno, Nevada, as Registrar; and



WHEREAS, Resolution No. 65-2 provided that First

National Bank of Nevada, Reno, Nevada, shall pay both

the interest and principal of said bonds when due;



NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved by the Board of Regents

of the University of Nevada at a regular session in

full conformity with the laws, rules and regulations of

the Board that First National Bank of Nevada is hereby

appointed Agent to handle the registration in lieu of

and for the Treasurer of the University of Nevada.



/s/ Bonnie Smotony

Secretary, Board of Regents



Adopted by the Board of Regents

May 8, 1965



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried

unanimously that the above resolution be adopted.



10. Transfers of Funds



President Armstrong reported the following transfers of

less than $2000 from the Contingency Reserve:



#202 $1200 to Buildings and Grounds, Repairs to provide

necessary funds for sun screens for south side of

Fine Arts building.



#211 $1500 to Library, Wages to provide additional funds

for part-time help in Circulation Department because

of a 56% increase in circulation of books in the

first 9 months of 1964-65.



#229 $1620 to Office of Vice President- Finance. The

expenditure impact of the increased activity of

various branches of this Office (Accounting, Buyer,

Non-Academic Personnel, NSU, Main Office) has been

underestimated and budgeted funds have proven in-

adequate.



#236 $1000 to Ceremonials, NSU for graduate expenses,

1964-65.



President Armstrong recommended approval of the following

transfers of $2000 or more from the Contingency Reserve:



#201 $2670.53 to Home Economics to provide balance of

salary for replacement of Dr. Marilyn Horn who is

on Sabbatical Leave.



#205 $10,000 to Agricultural Experiment Station to provide

fund to establish Central Nevada Field Laboratory.



#207 $6544.50 to Laboratories of Human Development, Tech-

nical Salaries, for months of April, May and June,

1965.



#209 $2500 to Cancer Research Laboratory to provide funds

to pay the half-time salary for Secretary in this

account.



#210 $5300 to Postage, Reno. This account was budgeted

for $17,600 or an average of $1467 per month. The

actual expenditure has been in excess of $1900 per

month. This transfer should enable us to finish the

fiscal year at the current rate of expenditure.



#218 $2014 to Supervised Teaching. The budgeted amount

was not sufficient for the number of student teach-

ers processed in academic year 1964-65.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the above fund transfers

be approved.



President Armstrong recommended approval of the following

transfers between In-State and Out-of-State travel funds:



#203 $30 from Executive Vice President, Out-of-State

Travel to Admissions and Registrar, Out-of-State

Travel to provide sufficient funds for the Director

of Admissions and Registrar to attend meeting in

Chicago in April, 1965.



#208 $85 from Executive Vice President, In-State Travel

to Office of Student Affairs, In-State Travel to

provide travel expenses for Dean of Student Affairs

to give Commencement address at the Lund High School

in May.



#214 $300 from Office of the President, Out-of-State

Travel to Special Out-of-State Travel to cover

deficit in account.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the above fund trans-

fers be approved.



11. Approval of Check Registers



President Armstrong recommended the Check Registers, as

submitted by Mr. Humphrey, be approved.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the Check Registers

be approved.



12. Travel Requests Against Agnes B. Momand Music Memorial



President Armstrong presented the following letter from Mr.

Humphrey requesting a decision by the Board:



I have signed these requests as there are funds available.

I wish to make certain that you remember the terms of the

bequest, which are that income shall 'be applied to musical

education of meritorious and indigent students'. This could

be interpreted to mean only scholarships and loans but it

could be given a broader interpretation such as faculty and

student travel. I am not aware of a Board of Regents de-

cision and such would be desirable.



During the last three years the following charges have been

made against the account in addition to scholarships:



Date Check No. Amount



01-05-62 4064 $44.38 University Mileage

06-26-62 9954 21.67 University Mileage

05-17-63 20432 32.69 University Mileage

11-18-63 27318 75.00 Warren Baker - Oboe Soloist

11-18-63 27319 39.83 University Mileage

12-04-63 27863 25.00 8 High School Students to

Klamath Falls Messiah

12-04-63 27864 46.00 Dale Hallack - Accompany

Students to Klamath Falls

12-23-63 28142 30.00 Honorarium - Messiah Soloist

12-23-63 28143 46.20 Room for Messiah Participants

12-23-63 28146 19.50 Board of Messiah Participants

04-03-64 31293 84.00 Students to Music Conference

in San Mateo

04-13-64 32330 41.16 University Mileage - San Mateo



Mr. Humphrey amended his recommendation by requesting the

Board approval be contingent upon approval by the Attorney

General concerning the appropriateness of this type of

charge against this fund.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried unani-

mously by roll call vote that the specific charges against

this account, as itemized in the above letter, be approved.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously that further review of the terms of the bequest be

requested of the Attorney General, with specific attention

as to whether travel may be properly charged against this

account.



13. Establishment of New Bank Accounts



President Armstrong presented the following request from

Mr. Humphrey with his recommendation that it be approved

according to the terms set forth within the letter:



"The two new Reno banks, Pioneer Citizens Bank of Nevada and

Valley Bank of Nevada, do not have University of Nevada ac-

counts at this time. We have received a request from the

Pioneer Citizens Bank of Nevada that an account be estab-

lished. This matter has also been discussed with the Valley

Bank of Nevada.



"Although it is not advisable in my opinion to move major

established accounts at this time, it would be feasible to

move the present National Defense Student Loan account

presently at the Greenbrae, Branch, First National Bank of

Nevada. I recommend that this account be moved to Pioneer

Citizens Bank of Nevada effective July 1, 1965.



"Changes planned in the accounting system effective July 1,

1965 made desirable the creation of a small revolving fund

for emergency checks. The more automated we become the more

efficient it is to handle the payments which flow through

regular channels; however, it also becomes more difficult

to write a check which is needed sooner than 48 hours. In

order to provide for the emergency checks I recommend that

a Petty Cash Fund of $3000 be established by transfer from

the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund (1-51-4056)

July 1, 1965. I recommend that this account be established

at the Valley Bank of Nevada on June 25, 1965.



"Board of Regents action is required to make the transfer

and establish the bank accounts. My recommendation in-

cludes, of course, the provision that these banks enter

into Collateral Agreements similar to the existing agree-

ments with First National Bank of Nevada, Nevada Bank of

Commerce, Security National Bank and Bank of Nevada."



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried

unanimously that the above recommendation be approved.



14. The next regular meetings of the Board will be June 11, 1965

and July 24, 1965, both on the Reno Campus.



15. Upon motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, and

unanimous vote, the meeting adjourned at 11:35 A.M.
