The letter from Eugene Menke, Assistant Professor of Elec-
trical Engineering, dated April 10, 1958 and addressed to
the Chairman of the Department, was read by Dr. Wood, in
which Mr. Menke asked that the letter be considered a
formal request for a one year's leave of absence. The
letter further stated that he had an offer from the Inter-
national School of Nuclear Science and Engineering at
Argonne National Laboratory and that it was his intent to
prepare himself for a position in the "Nevada Nuclear
Engineering Program". A review of the case, prepared by
Dean Blodgett, was also read and discussed. The review
stated that Professor Sandorf, Chairman of the Department,
forwarded Mr. Menke's letter to Dean Blodgett with the no-
tation, "I approve the above request with the understanding
that there is no obligation on our part to provide a posi-
tion for Professor Menke in the Electrical Engineering De-
partment upon his return." On April 15, 1958 Dean Blodgett
denied the request for a leave of absence, based upon:

A. Professor Menke did not want to return to the Elec-
trical Engineering Department, and;

B. It was expected that our Nuclear Engineering Program
would be headed by a man holding a degree of Doctor
of Philosophy, and that at this time the need for
an additional man of lessor qualifications had not
been determined.

Dr. Wood presented the request of Mr. Menke's without recom-
mendation.

Dean Blodgett was called into the meeting to discuss the
matter. He pointed out the indefiniteness of the Nuclear
Engineering Program, and the need for a search for a top-
flight man to head it, if and when it does become a reality.
He doubted that, in the short time Mr. Menke would be study-
ing in the Nuclear field, he could become qualified to head
up such a program at the University of Nevada. Mr. Blodgett
also stressed the difficulty of getting a qualified man to
replace Mr. Menke for one year, and the weakening of the
Department if this were to be attempted. Dean Blodgett was
asked if he would be willing to have a leave of absence
granted for one year to Mr. Menke if a new position were
to be created in Electrical Engineering to which Mr. Menke
might be assigned, and Dean Blodgett said that he would
agree. Dr. Wood recommended that, on the basis of the
agreement reached in this meeting, the leave of absence be
granted to Mr. Menke.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
unanimously that the request of Mr. Menke for leave of
absence for the academic year 1958-59, without pay, be
granted, and that the University Administration be author-
ized to include in the next biennial budget establishment
of an additional position in Electrical Engineering, ef-
fective July 1, 1959; and further, that Mr. Menke be advised
that he must advise Dean Blodgett by March 1, 1959, whether
or not he plans to return to his position in the Electrical
Engineering Department.

4. Next Biennium Building Program

Mr. Bissell and Mr. Hancock from the office of the State
Planning Board, and Mr. Sutton, Chairman, were present for
this item of business. Dr. Wood distributed a proposed
list of "Requested Physical Plant Facilities 1959-61 Bien-
nium" for the consideration of the Board, and recommended,
on the basis of the study by the College faculties, the
Administration and the University Engineer, that the report
be accepted as the building needs program for the next bi-
ennium and that it be submitted to the State Planning Board
for its consideration as follows:

mously that the list, as presented, be accepted for trans-
mittal to the State Planning Board and that each item be
accompanied by an explanation of need.

Dr. Wood discussed the use of student fees as pledge for
revenue bonds in the building program, and proposed that
such permissive legislation be sought at the next session.
It was agreed informally that additional information be
obtained on this method of financing from institutions which
have used it.

Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried
unanimously that the University seek permissive legislation
for use of student fees in its revenue bond building program
providing that if the Legislature approves the plan, it must
replace the amount of the student fees in the operating
budget of the University.

5. Planning Board Meeting

Mr. Bissell invited the Regents Building Committee, Mr.
Broadbent, and any other Regents who might be able to attend
and also Dr. Wood and Mr. Rogers, to meet with the State
Planning Board in Ely, June 13, at which time the Planning
Board will discuss the Jot Travis Student building, the
University's construction needs, financing and priorities
for the 1959-61 biennium.

6. Orr Ditch

In accord with action taken by the Board at its last meeting
the Attorney General was asked to prepare a resolution to
cover the situation concerning rerouting the Orr Ditch on
the University Campus. Mr. Rogers presented the resolution.

Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
unanimously that the resolution be adopted, as follows:

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, the Orr Ditch Company has consented to the
rerouting of that ditch on certain portions of the
University of Nevada Campus, and

WHEREAS, the Orr Ditch Company has requested the Uni-
versity of Nevada to assume the responsibility of keep-
ing the grids free and clear of debris where said
ditch goes underground at the entrance of the rerouted
ditch, and to keep said rerouted ditch free and clear
of debris, and

WHEREAS, said grids are a protection against children,
or others, falling into said ditch and being swept
underground,

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Board of Regents of
the University of Nevada, that the proper authorities
be authorized to accept such responsibility and to keep
said grids and the rerouted Orr Ditch clear and free of
debris where said rerouted Orr Ditch crosses property
of the University of Nevada.

7. Momand Portrait

Mr. Robert Taylor Adams, Attorney, Dr. Robert Hume, Profes-
sor and Consultant to the law firm of Adams and Reed, Mr.
Andrew F. Johnston and Mr. Harry O. Copeland of the Nevada
Bank of Commerce, came into the meeting to make formal pre-
sentation of the portrait of Agnes Momand. Professor Keith
Macy, Chairman of the Music Department, also, was present.
Mr. Adams called on Dr. Hume to make the presentation in
view of his dual position with the law firm and with the
University.

Dr. Hume said that it was the request of the executors of
the Estate that this portrait be presented to the Univer-
sity of Nevada. He than briefly reviewed the circumstances
of the bequest, stating that Mrs. Momand felt that Nevada
had been good to her and she wished to do something for
Nevada. At the suggestion of Attorney Adams, she then in-
cluded in her Will the bequest to the University.

Dr. Wood recommended acceptance of the portrait.

Motion by Mr. Sawyer, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried
unanimously that the portrait be accepted and the Secretary
instructed to write a note of appreciation to the firm of
Adams and Reed for their help in directing Mrs. Momand's
attention to the University of Nevada.
