Regent Anderson asked that the salary of President Armstrong

of his recommendation, Dr. Anderson quoted figures compiled
on 24 Land Grant Colleges in the West which for the present
year showed that the median was $18,000 and the average was
$17,913, and pointed out that these salaries will be in-
creased for the coming year.

Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the President's salary be set at $19,000
for the year beginning July 1, 1959 and added to the list
of personnel recommendations; and the entire list then be
approved.

Dr. Lombardi suggested that retirement of Dr. Hicks be
recognized in the form of a letter expressing appreciation
for his long and valuable service to the University.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
unanimously that such a letter be written to Dr. Hicks.

Basketball Coach - President Armstrong recommended that
Jackson M. Spencer of Iowa Wesleyan College be offered a
contract for the position of Head Basketball Coach in the
Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation at
a salary of $7000 for the coming academic year, as recom-
mended by Dr. Broten, Mr. Lawlor, Dean Irwin and Dr. Wood.
The President discussed the process of selection saying
that he had interviewed Mr. Spencer and the other candidates
brought in for interview along with those who made the rec-
ommendation. There were 87 applicants from all parts of
the United States and from Nevada. These were carefully
screened and 7 were interviewed. Mr. Germain expressed
dissatisfaction with the method of selection, believing
that the Regents might have had a larger part in the se-
lection before the matter reached the stage of a definite
recommendation. There was general discussion during which
Dr. Armstrong pointed out that the procedure followed in
this case is the same as for any new appointment on the
staff. Dr. Lombardi called a meeting during the luncheon
period of the Regents Athletic Committee with University
faculty concerned, so that the appointment and papers of
other candidates could be further discussed.

5. Working Budget, 1959-60

President Armstrong called on Mr. Hayden for the presenta-
tion and discussion. Copies of the working budget for 1959-
60, with expenditures broken down by quarters in accord with
request of the State Budget Director, were distributed to
the Regents. Legislative Act requires that the working
budget be submitted to the Budget Director by July 1. Sum-
mary of the budget was as follows:

Budget as per Schedule $4,995,894.50
Federal Matching Money for
Experiment Station 26,316.00
Reserve as of 5/19/59 11,806,50
$5,034,017.00

Motion by Mr. Crumley, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the working budget be approved, as pre-
sented and submitted to the State Budget Director, as
required.

6. Housing and Home Finance Agency Projects

a) Contracts - On May 5, 1959 the State Planning Board ac-
cepted bids of Lembke Construction Company of Nevada
for the University Dining Hall, Married Housing and
Men's Dormitory, subject to approval and acceptance by
the University of Nevada Board of Regents and the Fed-
eral Housing and Home Finance Agency. In letter of
May 21, 1959 Lembke Construction Company agreed to ac-
cept the contracts. It now becomes necessary for the
Board of Regents to adopt an appropriate resolution
accepting the bids and indicating that the amounts and
the total amount fall below the ceiling set by the
Legislature. President Armstrong read a prepared
resolution as follows and recommended acceptance:

RESOLUTION NO. 59-6
Project: Nev. 26-CH-1(DS)

RESOLVED, that the Board of Regents of the Uni-
versity of Nevada hereby approves and accepts
the action of the State of Nevada Planning Board
in voting to award contracts to Lembke Construc-
tion Company, lowest bidder, for the above project,
as follows:

Student Housing, in the sum of the base bid of
$289,199 plus $10,380 for Alternates 1, 2, 3 and 4,
or a total of $299,579.

Contract No. 2, for the construction of the Dining
Hall, in the sum of the base bid of $313,417 plus
Alternate A for $23,815, and minus a concurrent
change order reducing the contract amount by $5,197,
or a total of $332,035.

Contract No. 3, for the construction of the Men's
Dormitory, in the sum of the base bid of $512,924
plus Alternates B and D for $37,820, or a total of
$550,744.

Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the resolution be adopted, and that
Vice Chairman Lombardi be authorized to sign on behalf
of the Board of Regents.

b) Paying Agents - President Armstrong presented the re-
quest of the Regional Counsel, HHFA, that the University
select local and New York paying agents to be used in
connection with the University project for Dining Hall,
Married Housing and Men's Dormitory, in order that HHFA
might approve such agents and advise the bond counsel.
President Armstrong recommended that the First National
Bank of Nevada be named total paying agent and the First
National City Bank of New York City be named New York
paying agent.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried
unanimously that the banks, as recommended be designated
as paying agents.

c) Revenue Certificates - Dawson, Nagel, Sherman & Howard,
Bond Counsel, have proposed a procedure for sale of
"University of Nevada Revenue Certificates of 1959 -
$1,382,000 HHFA Project Nev. 26-CH-1(DS)" and have asked
for approval of a resolution describing details con-
cerning the certificates, and their sale. The Attorney
General approved the resolution* as to form with minor
changes. President Armstrong recommended that the
resolution be accepted and that Bond Counsel be noti-
fied that it is satisfactory to the University.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
unanimously that the Resolution form be approved, with
modifications as suggested by the Attorney General.

*Adopted by Board of Regents November 21, 1959 as
Resolution #59-7.

d) Interim Financing - President Armstrong called on Mr.
Hayden to discuss the University's application for a
loan from the First National Bank of Nevada for interim
financing. Letter from the bank signed by H. S. Gorman,
Vice President, was read by Dr. Armstrong as follows:

May 27, 1959

Mr. P. W. Hayden, Comptroller
University of Nevada
Reno, Nevada

Dear Mr. Hayden:

This will acknowledge receipt of your letter of
May 22, 1959 applying for a loan in the amount of
$942,000 at an interest rate of 2 7/8% per annum
for the purpose of providing interim financing
for the construction of a Men's Dormitory, Married
Student Housing facilities and Dining Hall at the
approximate cost of $1,177,556.

We are pleased to approve a loan in the amount of
$942,000 to provide for the interim financing at a
rate of 2 7/8% per annum. Interest will accrue
from the date advances are made under the commit-
ment.

It is understood that you have or will comply with
the requirements of the Housing and Home Finance
Agency so that the government is in a position to
buy the bonds of the University in an amount not
to exceed $1,382,000 for the purpose of financing
the construction of the foregoing improvements.

It is a pleasure to be of service to the University.

Sincerely,

/s/ H. S. Gorman

Mr. Hayden reported that Mr. Gorman asked also that the
Board of Regents provide the bank with a certified copy
of a resolution authorizing the necessary loan document,
and citing the authority under which the loan is being
made. The President recommended that the Regents au-
thorize the drafting of such a resolution and authorize
the Vice Chairman to sign on behalf of the Board.

Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the Attorney General be asked to pre-
pare a resolution for signature of Dr. Lombardi. (See
resolution following these minutes.)

7. Washington Elm Tree

The Washington Elm which was a gift of the Reno Elks Lodge
and is from a slip of the famous Washington Elm in Washing-
ton, D. C., is on the site of the new Men's Dormitory. Cost
to have it transplanted would be about $2000 and since the
tree is not in good condition, President Armstrong suggested
that a slip be taken from it for planting elsewhere on the
Campus. Mr. Preuss, University Nurseryman, believes that
this would be successful.

It was the consensus of opinion that a slip be taken from
the tree, rather than trying to transplant the tree itself,
in view of its poor condition and cost of transplanting.

Mr. Arnold, Dr. Anderson (of the Regents Building Committee)
and Mr. Rogers accompanied the President to a meeting of the
State Planning Board in Carson City on May 1, and architects
were chosen for the new buildings authorized by the Legisla-
ture. The Planning Board recommended 3 architectural firms
for each project and the Regents Building Committee was
asked to indicate its first choice. The Committee then
worked with the Planning Board in final selection of the
architect.

Contract has been signed with Vhay and Associates, and
Alexander, for the Library building, which will be located
on the site of the present Infirmary.

The Planning Board is in process of drawing an agreement
with Hubert F. D'Autremont of Los Angeles for the central
heating plant and utility distribution system.

Contract has been signed with De Longchamps, O'Brien and
Associates for the Engineering building.

Final plans for the Greenhouse will be checked shortly.
Ed Parsons was selected as Architect.

Structural changes for the Mackay School of Mines building
is in the process of negotiations, with Professor Bonell
as choice for Engineer.

Negotiations are being carried on with Raymond Hellman for
the Farm Mechanics building.

Advance planning of the new Science building is in process
of negotiation with architect Green. Use of this building
must be determined before further progress can be made,
since Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry are being housed
in Mackay Science Hall, and one of these Departments must
remain there. It was the recommendation of the President
and Mr. Rogers that the present building be retained as a
Physics building, because this is the most satisfactory
arrangement financially.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
unanimously that the Mathematics Department and the Chem-
istry Department be housed in the new building, and that
the Physics Department remain in the present Mackay Science
Hall, for purposes of economy.

The Las Vegas building and the utility system will be as-
signed to Crider, Moffitt and Hendricks, a joint venture of
two firms which, in the opinion of the Attorney General, is
in order provided the contract is drawn so that responsi-
bility is definitely fixed. Preliminary plans for the
Physical Education building at Las Vegas are complete, but
the exact site for the building must be decided upon. No
additional land was authorized by the Legislature, and the
State Planning Board believes that the site currently
chosen will crowd the Campus. Mr. Rogers suggested that
the football field not be included in the present master
plan, that the Student Union be placed so that the mall is
retained, and that the football field be located later.

The Board recessed at 11:05 A.M. for Commencement rehearsal and
was called to order at 12:30 noon by Vice Chairman Lombardi.

Discussion continued on the location of the Physical Educa-
tion building at Las Vegas, with Dr. Wood explaining the
present master plan, the mall and possibility of securing
adjacent properties. Mr. Rogers recommended that the
building be placed in the southwest area of the Campus.

Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the Physical Education building be located
as labeled on the master plan drawn by the State Planning
Board and approved on December 19, 1958 by the University
of Nevada, signed by President Armstrong.

Mr. Rogers asked for approval of preliminary plans for the
Physical Education building so that plans and specifications
might progress. Dr. Anderson suggested that unless the Uni-
versity has definite assurance that the accoustics will be
good, the plans be reviewed by an accoustical engineer at
the expense of the Planning Board. President Armstrong rec-
ommended approval of the preliminary plans.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
unanimously that the preliminary plans be approved, as
presented by Mr. Rogers.

The meeting recessed at 1:10 P.M. for luncheon, and was called
to order at 1:55 P.M. by Vice Chairman Lombardi.

10. University Farm

Deputy Attorney General Porter, who had studied the proposed
policies governing sale of the Ladino Dairy Farm, discussed
the opinion which he had rendered on behalf of the Office
of Attorney General. In his opinion, if the University
tries to sell the farm in one parcel, proposective buyers
will be greatly limited. He discussed selling for cash or
on a term basis, and proposed that to make the transaction
attractive it should be presented as a "package deal", in-
cluding water rights. He suggested also that the notice of
sale mention valuable water rights. He recommended an up-
to-date appraisal of the farm, and a breakdown on a parcel
basis of about 20 acres each. He reported that the title
is being checked so that the University would be able to
give clear title. He advised that the University require
that bids be accompanied by 10% of the bid. Since the
estimated cost for moving the operations from the Ladino
Dairy Farm to the Main Station Farm would be approximately
$100,000, it was the President's proposal that at least
that amount be realized in cash. Mr. Crumley suggested that
a better deal might be possible if contracts were made with
interested persons before the University asks for bids.

Motion by Mr. Tyson, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried unani-
mously that the Regents approve the sale of the Ladino Dairy
Farm on a parcel or total basis; either for cash or terms
which will realize approximately $100,000 cash for the Uni-
versity upon negotiation; that the appraisals be brought
up-to-date; that bids be accompanied by 10% of the purchase
price; and that Mr. Crumley be authorized to negotiate on
behalf of the Board of Regents.

11. Fire Escapes

Since the closing of Stewart Hall, a thorough study has been
made by Mr. Rogers of fire precautions and fire protection,
particularly in buildings crowded by the closing of Stewart
Hall, and as a result the Building Committee of the Regents
met with the Governor to see if $16,000 might be made avail-
able from the State Emergency Fund for fire escapes and
other forms of fire protection. No decision was made at
that meeting. On the following Monday, Mr. Rogers and Pres-
dent Armstrong met with the State Board of Examiners to
present the problem to them. It was their advice that the
University use money already allotted, even though it might
mean cutting back on other needed repairs. Mr. Foley and
Mr. Porter discussed the matter in the Regents meeting in-
dicating that there was some doubt that the situation could
be termed an emergency according to the wording of the Act.
They suggested that the University could overdraw its build-
ing and grounds funds in the last quarter of the current
fiscal year and go to the Legislature for a deficiency ap-
propriation, since the Legislature and not the Board of
Examiners is the body to appropriate money.

Motion by Mr. Tyson, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried
unanimously that the President be empowered to use $16,000
for necessary fire protection and that this money be ob-
tained at the President's discretion from the 1959 appro-
priation to the University.

12. Stewart Hall

Mr. Rogers reported that the building continues to be a
hazard due to the possibility of falling bricks loosened
by the earthquake. He requested authority to demolish the
building during the coming Summer down to the first floor
level, leaving 3/4 of a story above ground. Mr. Rogers
futher reported that a wrecking firm had offered to take
it down at no cost to the University, keeping the salvage,
except fire escapes and stairways. President Armstrong
recommended that this be done, and that bids for the demo-
lition be obtained.

Motion by Mr. Tyson, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
unanimously that the proposal presented by Mr. Rogers be
approved, and that the University Administration be
authorized to proceed accordingly.

13. Traffic Code

S. B. 172 passed by the Legislature and signed by the Gov-
ernor gives the Board of Regents the power to adopt traffic
regulations covering property of the University of Nevada.
Mr. Rogers proposed that the University use the code ap-
proved by the Board of Regents on June 2, 1956, and Presi-
dent Armstrong so recommended.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried unani-
mously that the Traffic Code be reaffirmed and a copy sub-
mitted to the Secretary of State, as required by the Legis-
lative Act.

14. Easement, Nevada Southern

Mr. Rogers presented the request of the Southern Nevada
Power Company for a right-of-way easement for a power line
which would run across the Campus to the well on the Campus,
and to give access of 5 feet on each side of the pole line.
The Power Company must maintain the pole line and needs to
be sure of access to it. President Armstrong recommended
approval.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Crumley, carried
unanimously that the right-of-way easement be granted.

15. Easement, Main Station Farm

Mr. Rogers discussed flood clearance in the Truckee River
which is about to get under way and presented the request
of the State of Nevada for a permanent easement and right-
of-way for clearing and maintaining the Truckee River Chan-
nel for flood control purposes. President Armstrong rec-
ommended approval.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Crumley, carried
unanimously that the easement and right-of-way be granted.

16. Candidates for Degrees

President Armstrong presented the list of candidates for
graduation as of June 1, 1959. These candidates had been
approved by the faculties of the Colleges concerned,
checked by the Registrar and the Comptroller to determine
that all requirements for graduation have been fulfilled
in each instance. President Armstrong recommended approval

that Jackson M. Spencer be appointed Basketball Coach.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Crumley, carried with
the following vote that Jackson M. Spencer be appointed Head
Basketball Coach for the academic year 1959-60 at a salary
of $7000:

Aye - Anderson, Arnold, Broadbent, Crumley, Lombardi,
Tyson
No - Elwell, Germain

18. Citizens Advisory Committee, College of Engineering

President Armstrong presented the recommendation of Dean
Blodgett that with the exception of Mr. Buehler, who is
unable to serve longer, the members of the Citizens Ad-
visory Committee for the College of Engineering who were
appointed for one year be reappointed for staggered terms
of office. The President recommended approval.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
unanimously that the recommendation be approved, and the
Administration be authorized to extend invitations to
these members to accept reappointment.

19. Apex Minerals Corporation Agreement

President Armstrong presented a proposed cooperative agree-
ment between the University of Nevada and the Apex Minerals
Corporation whereby the Nevada Mining Analytical Laboratory
would do metallurgical work on ore samples from the uranium
mine of Apex Minerals Corporation, Austin, Nevada to deter-
mine the best means of physically and/or chemically concen-
trating low-grade uranium-bearing materials from their mine.
The agreement had been submitted to the Attorney General
and received his approval as to form. President Armstrong
recommended approval.

Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that the agreement be approved, and the Presi-
dent be authorized to sign on behalf of the University.

20. Information from Personnel Files

Dr. Wood presented and discussed the following proposed
"Policy on Release of Information from University Personnel
Files". Dr. Armstrong recommended that the policy be ap-
proved.

A. All personal information pertaining to employees of the
University of Nevada is considered confidential and sub-
ject to release only as listed in Section C below.

B. All information concerning University personnel is to
be issued only by the President of the University or
his designate. In ordinary circumstances this would
be the person in charge of the University personnel
files in the Office of the Academic Vice President.

C. Information may be released from the University per-
sonnel files, as follows:

1. To the Dean of a College or Division, the file and
all information on personnel within the College or
Division.

2. To the Department Chairman, the file and all in-
formation on personnel within the Department.

3. To federal and State representatives, upon personal
presentation of their credentials, the file and all
information on personnel under consideration or
investigation.

4. To any caller, in person or by telephone, dates of
employment, position title, date assumed present
position.

5. To news service and representatives of the public
Press, items listed in No. 4 plus publications,
degrees earned, where and when obtained, experience
prior to joining the University staff, and the sal-
ary range for the type of position held at the Uni-
versity by the individual.

6. To business officials, insurance company official
representatives, credit agency officials and pro-
spective employers, all of No. 4, plus salary range
for type of position held at the University by the
individual.

7. To an individual employee of the University on loan
only information provided directly by him, but not
confidential information, evaluations, etc. pro-
vided by others.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Tyson, carried unani-
mously that the policy be adopted.

21. Special Children's Clinics

President Armstrong discussed the proposal of the Nevada
State Department of Health that the University of Nevada
and the Nevada State Department of Health co-sponsor a
Special Children's Clinic for the retarded person. The
Federal Government has made a grant for the establishment
of two clinics in Nevada - one in Reno and one in Las Vegas.
Additional financing, however, would be necessary on the
part of the two State agencies, and Dr. Armstrong pointed
out that no provisions for this project was included in
the University's budget. The proposal was discussed by
the Regents with the consensus of opinion that further
study should be given to it.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
unanimously that the matter be referred to Dr. Anderson
for discussion with appropriate committees of the State
Medical Society and other interested groups, and that he
report back to the Board of Regents.

22. Momand Request

President Armstrong read a letter from Thornton C. Land of
the firm of Breed, Abbott and Morgan which contained the
following paragraph:

We have not written to you about the compensation in
this matter for some time owing to the fact that we
were waiting for the proceedings to mature further.
On the basis of the time which we have expended in
connection therewith and the result, we would consider
a fee of $30,000 to be appropriate. In our conversa-
tion with Mr. Dickerson, we had understood that the
University operates by legislative grant and that
consequently we might have to wait for our compensa-
tion until one of the trusts falls in. If such is
the case and the amount of our proposed fee meets with
your approval, we would suggest an assignment of the
University's interest in the trust or trusts to the
amount of the fee. If, of course, there were any
method by which payment could be made of our fee cur-
rently, we would be glad to discuss the amount of it
with you further, since obviously we prefer to be
compensated currently rather than waiting for an in-
definite term of years. We have disbursements amount-
ing to $272.92 to date which we would appreciate being
reimbursed for at your convenience.

President Armstrong contacted Bruce Thompson regarding
the matter since Mr. Thompson has represented the Board
of Regents in correspondence with the law firm during his
membership on the Board of Regents. No reply has been
received by Mr. Thompson.

Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Tyson, carried
unanimously that action not be taken upon the fee of $30,000
until further word from Mr. Thompson, but that the claim for
disbursements in the amount of $272.92 be paid upon pres-
entation of suitable detailed statement.

23. American Association of University Professors

For the information of the Board, and for official record,
President Armstrong read the following letter dated April
28, 1959:

Dr. Charles Armstrong, President
University of Nevada
Reno, Nevada

Dear Dr. Armstrong:

I am pleased to inform you that, on April 25, the 45th
Annual Meeting of the American Association of Univer-
sity Professors voted to remove the University of Nevada
from the Association's "Censured Administrations" list.
It did so by adopting the following recommendation of
the Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure, which
had previously been approved by the Council:

Committee A records its satisfaction that the
faculty, administrative officers and Board of
Regents of the University of Nevada have made
further improvements in the tenure regulations
of the institution, and have adopted an organi-
zational plan for the faculty which will give
adequate opportunity for faculty participation
in the development of educational policies.
The Committee is also pleased to report that
the Board of Regents recently adopted a new
policy for the professional staff of the Uni-
versity, relating to such matters as appoint-
ments, promotions and salary advancements.

Committee A believes that satisfactory condi-
tions of academic freedom and tenure and good
faculty-administration relationship now prevail
in the University. This belief has been con-
firmed by several members of this Association
in the University. The Committee therefore
recommends to the 45th Annual Meeting of the
American Association of University Professors
that the University of Nevada be removed from
the Association's list of censured administra-
tions.

I am personally pleased at this outcome, and I wish you
every success in your further endeavors at the Univer-
sity and in wider areas of higher education.

Sincerely yours,

/s/ William P. Fidler

24. Technical Training Program, Las Vegas

The Specialized Technical Training Program for Las Vegas,
approved by the Regents on April 11, 1959, called for ap-
pointment of a committee on policy - one member from Clark
County, one member from the Board of Regents, and one mem-
ber from the State Board of Education, and one member repre-
senting the University. Dean Carlson has been appointed to
represent the University. Vice Chairman Lombardi appointed
Mr. Germain to serve as the representative from the Board
of Regents.

25. Signature, Contracts and Agreements

President Armstrong asked for clarification of the policy
covering signature of contracts and agreements on behalf
of the University, when these contracts and agreements are
not of such nature as to require advance clearance through
the Board of Regents.

Motion by Mr. Crumley, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried
unanimously that only the President of the University be
authorized to sign all such contracts and agreements.

26. Carl Horn

President Armstrong called attention to the retirement of
Carl Horn from the Department of Buildings and Grounds, and
his unusual record of 50 years service to the University;
and suggested that a resolution be adopted taking note of
these facts.

Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
unanimously that the following Resolution be spread on the
minutes of the Board of Regents and read at the Commencement
Exercises.

Recognizing that Carl M. Horn came to the University
of Nevada as a groundsman in 1909, upon his arrival as
a youth from Germany;

That he has given 50 years of service to the University,
in which time he has contributed in great measure to
its welfare;

BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Regents of the Univer-
sity of Nevada, upon the occasion of his retirement
this year, express its heartfelt appreciation to Carl
M. Horn, Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds, for
long and faithful service.

27. Next Meeting

It was agreed that the next meeting of the Board be a 2-day
meeting in Reno, July 10-11, for hearings and consideration
of the budget for the coming year.

The meeting ajourned at 3:35 P.M.

RESOLUTION #59-7

(Adopted by Board of Regents, University of Nevada, at meeting
held May 30, 1959, at University of Nevada, Reno, Nevada)

WHEREAS, by Chapter 360, Statutes of Nevada, 1957, the Board of
Regents of the University of Nevada was authorized to undertake
certain building projects for additional facilities at the Uni-
versity, including, but not limited to, the construction of (1)
a Men's Dormitory, (2) Housing for Married Students and Faculty,
