The Executive Committee of the Board of Regents met in the Pres-
ident's office on Thursday, May 22, 1952. Present were Chairman

requested this meeting with the Executive Committee, having
furnished a copy of the agreement since the May 15 meeting.

Mr. Furrh discussed the proposed agreement, which follows, say-
ing that it was his suggestion that the $4700 (item 1 below)
be paid from the University Revolving Fund.

and

WHEREAS, under date of July ____, 1951, First Party termi-

WHEREAS, a controversy has arisen as to the amount due
Second Party under the terms of said contract; and

WHEREAS, the parties hereto desire to compromise said dis-
pute and to avoid any litigation in respect of said claim
of Second Party.

NOW, THEREFORE, it is mutally agreed as follows:

1. That First Party shall forthwith pay to Second Party the
sum of Forty Seven Hundred Dollars ($4700) in cash,
which said payment shall be accepted by Second Party
and paid by First Party as a full and final settlement
of any and all claims of Second Party up to June 30,
1952.

2. That for the period beginning July 1, 1952 and ending
June 30, 1954, it is agreed as follows:

a. Party of the First Part agrees to request from the
1953 Session of the State Legislature of Nevada an
appropriation of Twenty Five Thousand Dollars
($25,000), being the amount of salary called for
by the contract dated January 10, 1949, for said
2-year period. Said request shall be included as
a part of the estimated expenditures of the Univer-
sity of Nevada and included in the 1953-55 budget.

b. In the event said appropriation is made, then it
is agreed as follows:

(1) On July 1, 1953, Second Party shall make an
accounting to First Party reflecting income
received by him from other employment during
the period from July 1, 1952 to June 30, 1953;
said income shall be deducted from the sum of
Twelve Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($12,500)
and the balance paid to Second Party forthwith.
Any income realized by Second Party from capital
gains or sources other than salary or wages for
other employment shall not be taken into con-
sideration in said accounting.

(2) On July 1, 1954, Second Party shall make an
accounting to First Party reflecting income
received by him from other employment during
the period from July 1, 1953 to June 30, 1954.
Said income shall be deducted from the sum of
Twelve Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($12,500)
and the balance paid to Second Party forthwith.
Any income realized from capital gains or
sources other than from salary or wages for
other employment shall not be taken into con-
sideration in said accounting.

(3) In the event any dispute shall arise as to the
accuracy of said accounting, the parties hereto
agree to submit the matter to the accounting
firm of Semenza & Kottinger, of Reno, Nevada,
and be bound by their decision as to the total
amount of income to be deducted from the annual
salary due under the contract of January 10,
1949. In the event the accounting rendered by
Second Party is found to be accurate, then any
charges for services rendered by said account-
ing firm shall be paid by First Party. In the
event said accounting is found to be inaccurate,
any charges for services rendered by said ac-
counting firm shall be paid by Second Party.

c. In the event the 1953 Session of the State Legisla-
ture of Nevada refuses to appropriate the said sum
of Twenty Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000) above
indicated, then and in that event, Second Party
reserves the right to take such legal action as he
may desire insofar as his claim to salary for the
period from July 1, 1952 to June 30, 1954 is con-
cerned, and nothing herein contained shall be con-
strued as a release of any claim Second Party may
have to salary for said period.

3. First Party agrees, as a Board and individually, to pro-
ceed in good faith and exercise every reasonable and
legal means to procure the appropriation of Twenty
Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000) from the State Legisla-
ture of the State of Nevada, as hereinabove referred to.

4. After receipt of the sum of Forty Seven Hundred Dollars
($4700) as provided for in Paragraph 1 above, Second
Party agrees to take no legal action against First Party
until the adjournment of the 1953 Session of the State
Legislature of Nevada, and in the event said appropri-
ation is made as above set forth, agrees to be bound by
the provisions of this agreement with reference to pay-
ment of salary for the period from July 1, 1952 to June
30, 1954.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, First Party, by its Chairman and Secre-
tary, hereunto duly autorized by resolution by said Board of
Regents, has caused this agreement to be subscribed and ex-
ecuted in its name and the seal of the University of Nevada
