                       REGENTS MEETING
                        May 12, 1945

The regular Commencement Meeting of the Board of Regents was
called to order by Chairman Ross at 9:45 A.M. in the President's
office.  Present:  Regents Henningsen, Sheerin, Mc Namee, Ross,
Sirkegian; Comptroller Gorman and President Moseley.

Motion by Mr. Mc Namee that the reading of the minutes of the
meeting of March 24, 1945, be dispensed with and that they be
approved as submitted, passed unanimously.

President's Information Report:

 (1)  Of the $25,000 granted by the 1945 Legislature for salary
      increases, $23,300 has been apportioned, after due consul-
      tation with the academic Deans, among faculty members now
      on duty at the University, actual recommendations to be
      submitted under "President's Recommendations".

 (2)  Lawton B. Kline, Assistant Professor of Foreign Languages,
      wishes to return to the University this Fall.  His salary
      will be $1800 per year, as set by the Regents at their
      meeting on January 1, 1944.

 (3)  The Washoe County Bar Association has appointed a standing
      committee for cooperation between the University of Nevada
      and the Association, composed of Lester Summerfield, Chair-
      man, Robert Z. Hawkins, Vice Chairman, John S. Belford,
      Morley Griswold, Miles N. Pike, William J. Kane and Albert
      Hilliard.

 (4)  Mr. O. T. Muehlmeyer, owner of the Muehlmeyer Heat Treat-
      ment Company of Rockford, Illinois, gave a series of lec-
      tures and demonstrations which proved interesting and
      beneficial to faculty and student groups.  Mr. Muehlmeyer
      has offered to give to the University a small bench gas
      heat treating furnace that can be used in the Mechanical
      Shop.  When it arrives, President Moseley will accept it
      in the name of the Board of Regents.

 (5)  The University applied for a Naval Reserve Officers Train-
      ing Unit but did not get it because of lack of facilities
      and the problem of keeping both an ROTC and an NROTC.  It
      was felt wiser to strengthen the ROTC than to attempt more
      than we could do well.

 (6)  The Honorary Board of Visitors met on Friday, May 11th,
      with Judge Taber as Chairman.  They were given a tour of
      the Campus and a luncheon at the University Dining Hall.
      President Moseley told them of plans and needs and was
      pleased with their response.

 (7)  An anonymous gift of $250 for scholarships in the Depart-
      ment of Foreign Languages is to be awarded $50 each, be-
      ginning with this Commencement.

 (8)  Major Fleischmann made a gift of stock certificates for the
      support of agriculture to be anonymous and known as "a gift
      from a citizen of Nevada on behalf of agriculture".  These
      certificates N21288 to N21337 inclusive at 100 shares each,
      Standard Brands Incorporated, no par value, registered in
      the name of "Board of Regents, University of Nevada", were
      given to Comptroller Gorman to be placed in the safety
      deposit box at the First National Bank.

 (9)  Professor Chadwick is resigning as Acting Graduate Manager
      because of his request for a leave of absence.

(10)  A letter from Mrs. Mary Beth Bornet, President of the
      Senior Class, gives $50 left in the trust with the Comp-
      troller for the erection of 2 lights with metal bases to
      be placed by the walks in front of Manzanita Hall.

Referring to a malpractice policy to cover acts of a University
Physician at the Infirmary, Dr. Gorman reported that the policy
would have to be written in the name of the Physician with a 25%
additional charge on the premium for naming the University of
Nevada as additional insured.  The policy is written by Lloyds
of London.  Motion of Mr. Mc Namee that the University Physician
be required to take out a malpractice policy in the $5,000 to
$15,000 limits, naming the University of Nevada as an additional
insured, and that he pay part of the premium since the insurance
covers his entire practice, passed unanimously.

Mr. Mc Namee moved that the Comptroller be authorized to adver-
tise for bids on the sale of the Loraine Hotel and that the
Chairman of the Board be authorized to open these bids at 10:00
A.M., June 28, 1945, and accept any satisfactory bid for $22,500
or more.  Passed unanimously.

Comptroller Gorman reported on the following legislative items:

(a)  In accordance with SB 130, Chapter 207, Statutes of Nevada,
     1945, authorizing the purchase of the Evans property, a
     regular claim was filed with the State Controller for
     $14,000 and regular deed was received from the Evans Com-
     pany and recorded in volume 167 of Deeds, page 455, at seq.
     records of Washoe County, Nevada.

(b)  In accordance with AB 216, Chapter 217, Statutes of Nevada,
     1945, an easement was prepared granting a right-of-way for
     the Highway Department and bearing the signature of the
     University of Nevada by the Chairman of the Board of Regents
     and the Department of Highways by the State Highway Engi-
     neer, and will be filed with the County Recorder.

(c)  In accordance with AB 217, Chapter 136, Statutes of Nevada,
     1945, an easement has been prepared granting a right-of-way
     to Washoe County, bearing the signature of the University of
     Nevada by the Chairman of the Board of Regents and the
     County of Washoe by the Chairman of the County Commissioners
     and will be filed with the County Recorder.

In accordance with SB 129, Chapter 199, Statutes of Nevada, 1945,
regular claim was filed with the State Controller for $1000.
Upon receipt of this money from the State Controller, a deed
approved by Mr. Mc Namee was presented to Mrs. Rickard for her
signature.  In reply Mrs. Rickard has written a letter asking
that certain items be done by the University before she signs,
also that interest on the $1000 be granted her.  Motion of Mrs.
Henningsen that Dr. Gorman be instructed to tell Mr. Lohse, Mrs.
Rickard's lawyer, that the Regents are prepared to open a road
immediately and to have survey stakes put in, passed unanimously.

In regard to the new Gymnasium, SB 132, Chapter 210, Statutes of
Nevada, 1945, Regent Sirkegian's report was discussed.  In addi-
tion to the items contained in Dr. Gorman's report of March 24,
1945, Mr. Sirkegian recommended the installation of metal hooding
and fans for the ventilation and exhaustion of the air directly
above the lockers at an approximate cost of $1750.  Motion of
Mr. Mc Namee that the above be done, passed unanimously.

After discussion of the remodeling of the old Gymnasium, motion
by Mr. Sheerin that Mr. Ross, Chairman of the Committee on Build-
ings and Grounds, be authorized, with power, to act, to make
minor repairs on the old Gymnasium, passed unanimously.

Upon motion of Mrs. Henningsen, Mr. Sirkegian was thanked for
his fine report and the expression of appreciation of the Board
is made a part of the minutes of this meeting.

By informal vote, authority was given to Dr. Gorman to go ahead
with the Heating Plant and with work on the new Gymnasium.

In discussing his report, Mr. Sirkegian said that mains should
now be installed to take care of the new buildings which will be
constructed in the future, so that these mains will not have to
be re-laid.  Mr. Sirkegian suggested a retaining wall to prevent
flood waters in the lower part of the Campus from reaching the
buildings.  The Heating Plan should be on this lower ground near
the new Engineering building.

Motion of Mr. Sheerin that a committee composed of President
Moseley, Comptroller Gorman and Mr. Ross as Head of the Buildings
