The President recommended that the Board of Regents adopt this
rule which is to apply in case applications for Dormitory privi-
leges either for men or women are in excess of the accommoda-
tions of the University, preference shall be given as follows:

    1st.  To all students who have been previously enrolled
          in the University of Nevada;

    2nd.  Among new student applicants preference shall be
          given to those whose families reside in Nevada.

Vote:

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

The President recommended the adoption of the following student
enrollment limitation policy and Mr. Pratt moved its adoption:

    That, from and after September 1, 1920, the University of
    Nevada shall not, during either semester or any University
    year, receive students whose families or whose guardians
    reside outside the State of Nevada, or who, if they have
    been living independently of family or guardian, have them-
    selves been residing outside the State of Nevada, to a
    number exceeding 50% of the total number of students from
    Nevada enrolled during the preceding University year,
    September to May inclusive, provided

    (a)  That the above limitation shall not be put into effect
         until the total enrollment of the University has reached
         600 for a given semester, or when it will reduce the
         enrollment below 600; and

    (b)  That the above limitation policy shall not operate to
         exclude any students from outside the State of Nevada
         who desire to enroll in the regular courses for Mining
         Engineers and who are fully qualified for entrance or
         advanced standing in the Mackay School of Mines.

Vote:

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

President Clark briefly outlined the University Building Program
which he will submit to Mr. Mackay at Mr. Mackay's request.

President Clark recommended that the cost of the Book of the
Oath should be paid from the Regents Contingent Fund.  Vote:

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

Judge Cheney asked for a statement of the personal proposition
of which President Clark spoke to the Board at its April meeting.
President Clark made the statement as requested.

Judge Cheney told the members that Mr. Ed Vanderleith had word
from some woman's organization at Fallon with which his sister
had worked to the effect that they were going to establish a
fund of $500 this year to be known as the Emma Vanderleith School
Fund and that they expected to add $500 to it each year.

President Clark stated that there was some doubt in the minds of
the members of the Honorary Board of Visitors as to whether their
existence was at all justified and if so, whether it would not be
better for them to meet at some time when the University was in
session rather than at Commencement time.  Any change in the time
of meeting would have to be a matter for legislative action inas-
much as Commencement Week is the specified time named in the
statute creating this Board of Visitors.  If any change were made
in the law, it might be well to have it amended so that the trav-
eling expenses of the Board members might be paid by the State,
as well as their entertainment expense while in Reno.

The Board then adjourned its regular meeting until 3 o'clock on
Wednesday afternoon and went into executive session.
