BUILDING COMMITTEE MEETING MAY 31, 1963



Present: Regents Anderson, Germain, Grant, Hug, Jacobsen,

Lombardi, Magee; President Armstrong, Vice Presi-

dent Young, Business Manager Humphrey, University

Engineer Rogers.



Women's Dormitory, Reno:



President Armstrong read a report from Mr. Rogers concerning

the State Planning Board's discussion of the problem of as-

sessing liquidated damages against Mr. Brunzell, constractor

for Juniper Hall, the new Women's Dormitory on the Reno

Campus. Mr. Rogers wanted to be certain that this matter

be settled in a manner satisfactory to H. H. F. A., so that

the University would suffer no loss of funds.



Mr. Germain moved, Mr. Jacobsen seconded, that the Board of

Regents go on record as urging the State Planning Board to

pursue the enforcement of the liquidated damages clause in

the contract for the construction of Juniper Hall. Motion

passed.



Selection of Architects:



Mr. Rogers provided the Committee with the names of archi-

tectural firms selected by the State Planning Board for

consideration for upcoming University projects, as follows:



Physical Education, Phase 1 (Stadium) - Reno



a) Vhay, Ferrari and Windmer and Jack Means (CE)

b) John Webster Brown (CE) - with Ralph Berger or

Selden and Stewart

c) Ferris, Erskine and Calef and Sprout Engineers

d) Lockard and Casazza and Malone



Social Science Building - Las Vegas



a) Moffitt and Hendricks

b) Julius Gabriele

c) Jack Knighton

d) James Mc Daniels

e) Zick and Sharp



In conformance with procedure followed in the past, the

State Planning Board has asked that the Regents recommend

their choice of architect for each project.



Dr. Lombardi moved, Mr. Jacobsen seconded, that James

Mc Daniels be recommended as the architect for the Social

Science building in Las Vegas. Motion passed.



Mr. Jacobsen moved, Mr. Hug seconded, that John Webster

Brown (CE) be recommended as the Engineer for the Physical

Education Facility, Phase 1 only, with the understanding

that, after further study as to the architectural needs of

the project, he would recommend for Regents' approval, one

or more firms to serve as consulting architect. Motion

passed (Mr. Germain abstaining).



Procedure on Selection of Architects:



The Committee discussed the action of the Public Health

Service in selecting an architect, without consultation

with the Regents, for the development of preliminary plans

for additional buildings to serve the Radiological Labora-

tory on the Nevada Southern Campus. It was agreed that the

Regents should have been consulted before this step was

taken. No further action was taken.



Non-State Projects:



President Armstrong read a report from Mr. Rogers recommend-

ing that the University itself administer the construction

of upcoming projects which do not involve State funds, but

rather are financed through revenue bonds, specifically the

Dormitory-Dining Hall and the additional Radiological Labor-

atory buildings at Las Vegas. This would mean that the

State Planning Board would not be involved in these proj-

ects.



Mr. Germain moved, Dr. Lombardi seconded, that the Univer-

sity plan to administer the above projects itself. Motion

passed.



Land Acquisition - Las Vegas:



Mr. Rogers reported that William Hancock of the State Plan-

ning Board has arranged to have an appraisal of all land

that would be affected by an exchange of property as planned

for the Nevada Southern Campus. Mr. Hancock also has in-

formed Mr. Rogers that the $200,000 appropriated for land

purchase can be used only in the area designated by the

Legislature and only after all efforts have been exhausted

to trade or exchange land. The Committee discussed the

course of action most suitable to the University. However,

no action was taken.



Land Acquisition - Reno:



President Armstrong read the following report from Mr.

Humphrey regarding the purchase of the Roman Catholic Church

property. No action was required by the Committee.



SUBJECT: Amendment of escrow instructions for the

purchase of the Roman Catholic cemetery,

school and playground



Just before delivery of the signed escrow instructions to

the Nevada Title Guaranty Co., I became aware of the fact

that, under the escrow instructions, the Church could direct

the Title Company to invest the $211,095 paid by the State

for the school and playground and could receive the invest-

ment earnings. Since it was possible that the University

would receive neither use nor rent for this property for

four years and seven months (that is until December 31,

1967), I concluded that this was not in the best interests

of the University. I consulted with Mr. F. Pat Finnegan,

Deputy Attorney General, and we agreed that the escrow in-

structions should not be delivered. The signature portion

of the original instructions was removed. I did, however,

deliver the State warrant for $211,095 into escrow in order

to comply with the sales agreement.



Subsequently, I negotiated further with Father Connolly and

the Church's Attorney, Morgan Anglim, and reached the agree-

ment outlined in the escrow instructions dated May 31, 1963,

which I now recommend that you sign. The changes from the

original instructions are:



a. Possession of the school and playground will pass to the

University on January 1, 1965 (three years earlier than

original agreement).



b. The University must rent the school and playground back

to the Church from January 1, 1965 until December 31,

1967, if the Church so requests. Rent will be $12,666

per year. Thus, if the Church does retain use of the

school until December 31, 1967, the University will re-

ceive $37,998 rent which it would not have received

under the previous agreement.



c. The $211,095 is held in escrow "for the benefit of and

subject to the instructions of the seller" as provided

in the first set of escrow instructions. Thus, for 19

months while the $211,095 is in escrow the interest will

accrue to the seller. Since we have been assured by the

Attorney General's Office that there is no legal way for

the State or the University to receive this interest, we

give up nothing in order to let the Church earn the in-

terest. We gain by the three year earlier possession

of the school.



Mr. Finnegan has tentatively approved this agreement by

telephone and will have an opportunity June 1, 1963 to

complete his review before signing.



/s/ Neil D. Humphrey



Physical Science Building and Social Science Building -

Reno:



Mr. Rogers recommended that the Regents request that the

architects be authorized by the State Planning Board to

develop complete plans for the Physical Science building

and the Social Science building. Money is available for

the development of these plans. Matching money might be

obtained from the National Science Foundation or the

National Institute of Health to make it possible to bid

materially in construction of these facilities.



Mr. Jacobsen moved, Mr. Germain seconded, that the State

Planning Board be asked to authorize the architects to

develop complete plans for the Physical Science building

and the Social Science building. Motion passed. The

Chairman of the Committee and the University Engineer are

to follow through on this by contacting the State Planning

Board.



4-H Camp:



President Armstrong read a report from Dr. Young regarding

the development of the 4-H Camp, as follows:



SUBJECT: 4-H Camp Development



On May 9, 1963, I wrote Attorney General Harvey Dickerson

on behalf of the Ad Hoc Committee on the 4-H Camp to inquire

as to the legal status of the Camp.



Mr. Dickerson assigned this matter to Deputy Attorney Gen-

eral Francis P. Finnegan; and on May 15, 1963, he met with

the Committee to discuss this question. He then wrote a

letter of advice on May 21, 1963, which stated:



"The 4-H property is not governed by the provisions of

NRS 396.430 which enable the Regents to deal with the

University properties without prior legisative author-

ization. It is, therefore, our opinion that the Univer-

sity may not treat this property as University property

for the purposes of long-range development. The intent

of the Legislature is clear that title shall remain in

the State and that the University's function is purely

one of manager and supervisor of the property. In line

with the conference which I attended, I suggest that if

the University chooses to proceed with a long-range de-

velopment program that legislation be sought in the next

session which would place the 4-H property in the same

catagory as other properties administered by Regents.



"As to the change in title of the individual University

staff member who is charged with the management of the

Camp, it is our opinion that the function is more deter-

minative than the title where the duties of the individ-

ual are absorbed into another position; the duty of

management of the 4-H property follows the function.



"I have not yet resolved the water and sewer difficul-

ties which currently exist at the 4-H Camp, but I am

proceeding on the matter and will be in touch with you

when I can report some substantial progress."



On May 27, 1963, the Committee met with the 4-H Advisory

Council to inform that group as to the Committee's thinking

concerning the legal status of the Camp and the implications

for the future development of the Camp.



As a result of this preliminary work, the Committee has

agreed on the following points:



a. The development of the 4-H Camp has been and will con-

tinue to be, stymied by the present wording of NRS 550.

Because of the wording of the legislation, according

to the Attorney General, "... the University may not

treat this property as University property for the pur-

pose of long-range development. The intent of the

Legislature is clear that title shall remain in the

State and that the University's function is purely one

of manager and supervisor of the property."



b. If the 4-H Camp is to be developed, this legal problem

must be resolved. Therefore, it is recommended that

at its next session the Legislature be requested to

determine whether or not it wishes the University to

proceed with the development of the Camp. If the

Legislature does wish to have the University develop

the Camp, then present law should be modified so that

title to the Camp is clearly placed in the hands of the

University. If the Legislature is opposed to this

course of action, then the University should ask to be

relieved of the responsibility for administering the

Camp.



c. In the meantime, and to assist the University and the

Legislature in determining this matter, the Committee

should proceed with the development of a Master Plan

for the Camp so that it will be quite clear as to the

University's intentions if the Camp is placed in its

hands.



d. The 4-H Advisory Council is agreed to this course of

action. It also was agreed that interested parties

throughout the State would have to be kept closely

informed as to the University's position and actions

and the reasons for them; this would be the responsibil-

ity of the Cooperative Extension Service.



Mr. Hug moved, Mr. Jacobsen seconded, a recommendation that

the University develop a Master Plan for this area and take

steps to attempt to get appropriate action in the next Leg-

islature so that the University can have authority for de-

velopment of this area. Motion passed.



Desert Research Institute Facility:



Mr. Hug asked if it would be possible to obtain matching

money from the National Science Foundation to apply toward

the construction of a building for the Desert Research

Institute. President Armstrong said that it was felt that

the University would fare better if it sought NSF money for

the Physical Science building rather than the DRI building.



/s/ Kenneth E. Young

Acting Secretary



Mr. Hancock discussed the item in the meeting of the Plan-

ning Board held on May 28, 1963 regarding the Women's Dorm-

itory, Reno Campus. He reported that a liquidated damage

claim had been prepared covered 44 days and amounting to

$4400. However, allowances were agreed upon, for what the

Planning Board considered valid reasons for delay, bringing

the actual claim to five days or $500. The Regents dis-

cussed the matter in some detail, especially as to whether

or not HHFA would be willing to accept the decision of the

Planning Board. Mr. Hancock pointed out that he is pre-

senting the matter as a recommendation to the Board of

Regents, for action by the Board.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Dr. White, carried

unanimously that the Administration determine how HHFA will

react to the recommendation of the Planning Board, and take

whatever action is deemed to be in proper order.



Dr. Anderson discussed the recommendation that John Webster

Brown be named consulting engineer for the Stadium project.

Much of the work will be engineering in nature, in which

this firm specializes. He pointed out that the recommenda-

tion was based on the understanding that proceeding with

this consultant for this phase of the project would not mean

that this consultant would necessarily design other phases.

Mr. Germain requested that someone from the Department of

Health, Physical Education and Recreation work along with

the University Engineer's Office on the design state proj-

ect, and President Armstrong pointed out that this has

already been done.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

with Mr. Germain abstaining, and all other Regents voting

"aye", that the firm of John Webster Brown be accepted as

consultant engineer for Phase I of the Physical Education

project (Stadium), on the understanding that the firm will

employ an architectural firm agreeable to the Board of

Regents.



Dr. Anderson discussed the recommendation that James Mc

Daniel be named architect for the Social Science building

in Las Vegas.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unani-

mously that the recommendation be approved.



Mr. Rogers discussed the Radiological Laboratory project

in Las Vegas, and why he believed Moffitt and Hendricks had

gone ahead on the plans without Regents' approval. He ex-

plained that the Radiological people asked the firm to make

a study, which developed into preliminary plans. The study

was necessary for estimating costs, and preliminary plans

were a part of the study.



The matter of University or University-State Planning Board

control of coming revenue bond projects was discussed, es-

pecially, at present, the Radiological Laboratory and the

Dining-Dormitory facility. Mr. Hancock reported that the

same question had come up on a meeting of the Planning

Board, and it was decided to take the matter up with the

Regents' Building Committee before taking final action. Mr.

Hancock offered the services of the Executive Committee to

discuss matters pertaining to these projects, if it is de-

sired.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried with

Dr. Anderson and Mr. Hug voting "no" and all other Regents

voting "aye" that the University administer the above two

projects.



There being no objection, the Chairman authorized the Re-

gents' Building Committee to meet with the Planning Board to

discuss administration of other such projects.



In regard to land acquisition in the Las Vegas area, Mr.

Hancock discussed the intent of the Legislature that all

possible attempts be made to exchange property before making

purchase. The Trinity Church property exchange is being

held up due to the Planning Board's new appraisals. Report

was made, as per minutes of the Building Committee, on the

status of negotiations for the Catholic Church property.



Dr. Armstrong discussed the possibility of securing match-

ing money from the National Institutes of Health, the

National Science Foundation, or other such agencies, for

construction for graduate work facilities. After plans

are completed, the University would be in a position to seek

matching funds for that portion of the building to be used

for research. He referred especially to the Social Science

building and the Physical Sciences building, and recommended

that action be taken to proceed.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

unanimously that the State Planning Board be requested to

proceed with design of the two projects immediately and

that the Administration be authorized to seek grants, as

explained above.



Dr. Armstrong discussed the 4-H Camp property at Lake Tahoe,

as per minutes of the Regents' Building Committee.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously that the University develop a Master Plan for

the 4-H Camp and take steps at the next session of the

Legislature to obtain control and supervision of the Camp

property, or to be relieved of responsibility altogether.

12. Nevada Southern, Degree Granting Status



Dr. Armstrong discussed his proposal that Nevada Southern be

authorized to grant degrees. After a thorough self-evalua-

tion, visitation by representatives of the Reno Campus, and

then by experts in the specific areas in which degrees are

being proposed, Dean Carlson made his recommendation for

granting certain degrees. Academic areas proposed were

evaluated and selected in terms of present enrollment, fac-

ulty library resources and special facilities. He pointed

out that Dean Carlson had based his recommendations on the

actual working budget for the fiscal year 1963-64, and this

recommendation has been followed through. Dr. Armstrong

recommended authorization of baccalaureate degrees for

Nevada Southern in the following areas, beginning with the

end of the academic year 1963-64:



Bachelor of Arts (B. A.)

Bachelor of Science (B. S.)

Bachelor of Arts in Education (B. A. in Ed.)

Bachelor of Science in Education (B. S. in Ed.)

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B. S. in

Bus. Ad.)

Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unani-

mously that the recommendation to grant degrees, as stated

above, be approved.



Mr. Germain called attention to the great amount of time

spent by the Evaluation Committee in doing the fine job

which it accomplished.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Dr. White, carried unani-

mously that the Regents express deep appreciation for the

sincerity and thoroughness of the evaluation by the Evalu-

ation Committee of Nevada Southern's curriculum.



13. Class A Actions



Material explaining and supporting the recommendation of

President Armstrong for approval of the following four Class

A Actions had previously been mailed to the Regents.



I. Salary Payments for Deceased Faculty Members



In addition to any benefits which may be paid to the

estate of a deceased faculty member from insurance,

Public Employees Retirement, or any other source, the

University shall pay to the estate the following

benefits:



1 - Faculty members on 12-month appointment who are on

payroll at the time of death shall receive salary

through the day death occurred plus any earned but

unused annual leave, together with 1/12th of the

current annual contract salary.



2 - Faculty members on 10-month appointment who are on

payroll at the time of death shall receive salary

through the day death occurred plus 1/12 of the

current annual contract salary.



II. (B) Sabbatical Leave



1. Eligibility: Any faculty member who holds a pro-

fessoral or equivalent rank, and who has served

full time (on either a 10 or 12 months contract)

for six or more salaried years at the University

of Nevada is eligible for a sabbatical leave.



Time toward sabbatical leave is not cumulative

beyond six years. A faculty member whose service

at the University of Nevada has been discontinuous

(i. e., was previously discontinued by resignation

or release from the University) shall accumulate

leave time from the date marking the commencement

of his most recent term of service.



2. Options and Stipulations:



2.1 Qualified applicants for sabbatical leave

shall have two alternatives: a full year of

leave at 2/3 salary, or half year at full

salary.



2.2 The taking of sabbatical leave shall in no

way interfere with the continuing employment

of an individual by the University, with any

scheduled promotion or salary increase, with

his retirement program, or with any other

rights normally associated with his work at

the University.



2.3 It is presumed that the leave will benefit

the University or the professional advance-

ment of the individual.



3. Procedure:



3.1 Persons desiring sabbatical leave shall sub-

mit their applications to the President

through their Department Chairman and Dean,

in the Fall semester of the year prior to the

academic year in which they desire the leave.

Application forms are available in the Aca-

demic Personnel Office.



3.2 The President may appoint a Sabbatical Leave

Committee to assist in selecting those to be

granted sabbatical leave. In making its

recommendations, the Committee should con-

sider both the merit of the application and

the seniority of the applicant.



3.3 In case a member of the Sabbatical Leave

Committee shall desire sabbatical leave, his

application shall follow the procedure out-

lined in paragrah 3.1 and shall not be re-

ferred to the Committee.



4. Obligations Upon Taking Sabbatical Leave:



4.1 Upon completion of his sabbatical leave, the

faculty member must return to his University

duties for a period of time at least equal

to that of his last annual contract.



4.2 Additional outside income (e. g., grants-in-

aid or fellowships) may be accepted during

the leave provided such remuneration is

designated primarily to contribute to the

individual's future usefulness to the Univer-

sity or to his professional development.



4.3 Acknowledgement of sabbatical assistance

should be given in any publications result-

ing from work accomplished during the sab-

batical year.



4.4 A written report concerning sabbatical leave

activities is to be sent to the President

with a copy to the Academic Personnal Office.

Sabbatical Leave Selection Guide



In order to provide a year-to-year consistency in the se-

lection principles employed for sabbatic leaves, the Uni-

versity Council proposed that the following "Sabbatical

Leave Selection Guide" be appended to Faculty Bulletin No.

792, Part B, which sets forth the offical University policy

on sabbatical leave.



(Note: In the original Committee report approved by the

Council, this item was NOT designated as a Class A Action.

Stemming from a faculty request, however, this matter was

reconsidered at the April Council meeting and was reclassi-

fied as Class A in nature.)



Sabbatical Leave Selection Guide

Criteria for Selection Weight Factors



1. Merit of Application** 50%

2. Length of Service at U. of N. 25%

(Less 6 years for each previous sabbatical)

3. Meritorious Service of Applicant 15%

4. Recommendation of the Dean 5%

5. Recommendation of the Chairman 5%

----

100%



**In determining merit of the application, the Selection

Committee should weigh both (a) the probability that

applicant's aims can be achieved (which may involve exam-

ination of applicant's past achievements in his specialty;

and (b) the merit of the applicant's proposed sabbatical

project (for which the Committee may solicit a profes-

sional evaluation).



The following items are listed to assist the Committee in

assigning priority to types of proposed projects.



Types of projects in suggested order of decreasing

priority:



1. Projects which are primarily designed to lead to

major publications.

2. Projects which primarily involve advanced study

at other institutions.

3. Projects which primarily involve domestic or

foreign travel.

4. Projects which primarily involve research in resi-

dence at the University of Nevada.

5. Projects which center in a study or training pro-

gram in business, industry or government.

6. Application for sabbatical leave time to complete

graduate degree work.

7. Others at Committee's discretion.



Guides to Application of Criteria:



The following points are designed to assist the Committee in

its work and to insure a degree of year-to-year consistency

in sabbatical leave selections.



1. Applications are neither prejudiced nor fortified

by previous unsuccessful applications.

2. Acceptance of sabbatical leave should not interfere

with either promotion or salary increase.

3. The qualifying six years may be interrupted by leave

but not by resignation.

4. At its discretion the Ad Hoc Committee may have pro-

posals evaluated by persons of competence in the

area of that application.

5. The Administration will decide among multiple appli-

cations recommended from the same Department.



III. Term of Office of Council Members



To give the University Council a greater continuity of

membership, the term of office of each elected member

shall be of length 3 years, instead of 2, with (ap-

proximately) 1/3 of the Council membership instead of

1/2, being replaced each year.



Specifically, in Chapter 1, Section III, Paragraph

3.2, line 2, replace "two" by "three".



IV. Committee, Boards and Councils



Chapter II, Section III, 3. University Council

an ad hoc committee on appeals appointed by the Presi-

dent.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

unanimously that the Class A Actions be approved.



14. Medical Survey



Dr. Anderson discussed the medical survey of the State and

the recent meeting held in Carson City at the request of the

Governor for the purpose of discussing the medical manpower

needs and supply. The survey group may propose an arrange-

ment among the four states concerned -- Nevada, Wyoming,

Idaho, Montana -- for a regional Medical School. If such

a proposal is made, Nevada could well be the logical state

for such School, because, of the four states, its population

centers in relation to its education institutions, is more

advantageous to medical education.



15. Estimative Budgets



Copies of the University of Nevada Estimative Budgets for

1963-64 had previously been mailed to members of the Board.

These covered those activities which have fluctuating rev-

enue sources and where the rate of expenditure is usually

tied closely to the current revenues, as follows: Summer

School Reno, Summer School Nevada Southern, Summer Coaching

Clinic, Lake Tahoe Music Camp, Summer Laboratory School,

Evening Division Reno, Off-Campus Division, Correspondence

Division, Special Institutes and Projects, Title VIII

Evening Division, Civil Defense Training Program, Inter-

collegiate Athletics Reno, University ROTC Rifle Team,

Dining Commons (including Snack Bar), University Village

(Married Student Apartments), White Pine Hall, Manzanita

Hall, Lincoln Hall, Artemisia Hall, Juniper Hall, Student

Health Service Reno. President Armstrong explained that

while authority was delegated to the President to handle

these budget accounts, since they are an important part of

the University operation, they are being submitted to make

certain revisions which will later be reported to the Board

of Regents.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Dr. White, carred unani-

mously that the Estimative Budgets be approved.



16. Association of Governing Boards



Mrs. Magee reported briefly on the regional meeting held in

Dallas, Texas, which she attended. The Association will

hold its Spring 1964 meeting at the University of Nevada

upon invitation extended by Mrs. Magee. She called atten-

tion to the meeting to be held at Pennsylvania State Univer-

sity on October 16-18, 1963 and urged as many of the Regents

to attend as possible so that they might become acquainted

with the nature of the meetings, the organization itself,

and its members. Dates of the Reno meeting are May 10-12.



17. University Audit



Copies of a memoradum from Governor Sawyer to all State

agencies, together with copies of correspondence between

the Governor, the Legislative Committee and the Office of

the Attorney General were submitted for consideration of

the Regents. They covered certain practices on the part

of the Legislative Counsel which have been declared uncon-

stitutional by the Attorney General. Provisions of S.B. 24,

the Act referred to, are:



The Legislative Counsel is to appoint a Legislative

Analyst, who, in addition to other duties, is to be

an investigator of the executive branches of the gov-

ernment. As such investigator, he can:



1. Determine the accounting systems for all executive

Departments and make them accept it.



2. Demand an accounting of all receipts and expendi-

tures from all agencies of State government.



3. Examine all executive Departments and determine as

to the quality of the help therein employed.



4. Request all Officers and employees of the State

Departments to make available to him all books,

accounts, claims, reports, vouchers, or other

records of information, confidential or otherwise.



5. Deal with what he determines to be important issues

of public policy and questions of statewide inter-

est.



6. Upon his determination, report upon the inadequacy

of executive personnel to the Legislative Counsel

Bureau, which is empowered to hold hearings thereon,

with power to summon the heads of government, and

to request such executives to discharge or replace

personnel which it determines to be incompetent or

inefficient.



Governor Sawyer has requested State Agencies to refuse to

accede to any improper demands on the part of the Legisla-

tive Counsel and to report to him any such attempts. The

Legislative Counsel has asked whether or not the University

intends to follow the Governor's request, and also informs

the University that it intends to challenge the opinion of

the Attorney General in court.



President Armstrong recommended as follows:



I recommend to you, therefore, that it would be most

appropriate if the Board of Regents would authorize me

to inform the Legislative Commission and the Legislative

Counsel that we will cooprerate, as we always have in

the past, with their auditors if they wish to proceed

with the 1962-63 audit prior to the solution of this

matter in court. I take no exception to the Governor's

directive to agencies for which he is directly respon-

sible, but I believe the Board of Regents to be differ-

ently situated, both constitutionally and politically,

in their direct responsibility to the electorate. Hence

any action by the University to interfere with Legisla-

tive Oversight and post-audit would be inappropriate.



President Armstrong proposed, and the Regents agreed, that

it would be well to have the University accounts audited by

an outside auditing firm about every five years, and that

the Legislature should be requested to appropriate funds for

the purpose.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously that the recommendation of the President be

approved, and the Legislative Counsel be notified that the

University welcomes an audit by the Legislative Auditor.



18. Salary Payments, Demers



In view of the Class A Action approved by the Board of

Regents in item No. 12 of these minutes, President Armstrong

recommended applying the rule retroactively to the case of

Maurice R. Demers, whose death occurred on January 10, 1963.

This would mean that payment to the estate would be made as

follows:



Regular salary through January 10 ($301.04 against

regular contract and $88.48 against letter of appoint-

ment for In-Service Institute in Mathematics) plus 1/12

of regular contract ($816.66) or a total of $1206.18.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that payment be made to the

Estate of Dr. Demers, as recommended.



19. Payment for Nuclear Reactor



Mr. Humphrey had submitted the following report on payment

for the L-77 Laboratory Reactor: Contract with Atomics

International is for total payment of $66,700. Transpor-

tation and unloading charges amount to $790. This totals

$67,490. There is available in the Margaret Charitable

Trust $50,000 and in the Nuclear Reactor Gifts Account

$15,900, making a total of $65,900. This amount is $1590

less than the obligation.



President Armstrong recommended that the Lowell Daniels

Endowment Income Account be used for the $1590 balance due.

The income from this account is unrestricted and sufficient

funds are available.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Dr. White, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the recommendation be

approved.



20. Daughters of the American Revolution



Letters had been received by President Armstrong and by

Chairman Grant from the local Vice-Regent of D. A. R. asking

the University to subscribe to a paid advertisement in the

February 1964 issue of the magazine, which will be devoted

largely to Nevada and to Mrs. Robert Z. Hawkins, D. A. R.

Regent. President Armstrong referred to previous action

taken by Board of Regents on October 11, 1946 as follows:



Motion of Mr. Sirkegian carried unanimously that, on

and after the date of the passage of this resolution,

no paid solicited advertising of the University shall

be placed in any publication other than those publish-

ed, sponsored, or produced by the University.



There was unanimous agreement that the President be author-

ized to thank the D. A. R. for the letter and inform them

that the University cannot subscribe to paid advertising.

The Chairman was so ordered.



21. National Defense Student Loan Program



Since the Legislature did not appropriate money for the

University's 1/9 matching of Federal funds for the National

Defense Student Loan Program, it is necessary to make other

monies available if the Loan Program is to continue in

1963-64. Mr. Humphrey reported that the advance allocation

for 1963-64 is $46,112. This would require $5,123.55 match-

ing money; however, the University is presently over-depos-

ited $1,335.33 and only $3,788.22 will be required at this

time.



President Armstrong recommended that the Board authorize a

transfer from the Garvey Rhodes Loan Fund (61-5006) of

$3,788.22 to the National Defense Education Act Student

Loan Fund (61-4001).



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously that the transfer from the Garvey Rhodes Loan

Fund be approved.



22. HHFA Dormitory Project



President Armstrong presented a report from Mr. Humphrey on

interim financing for the HHFA Dormitory Project to be built

on North Virginia Street. On June 2, 1962, the Board auth-

orized the Administration to negotiate for interim financ-

ing. A commitment was then secured from the First National

Bank of Nevada to loan up to $2 million for the project at

the HHFA "take out rate" current when the money was needed.

It will be necessary to pay $331,405 for the cemetery prop-

erty late in June of this year. Since there have been

changes in the Board and a year has passed since the author-

ization was given, renewal of the authorization is here

being requested. President Armstrong so recommended.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the Board of Regents

authorize the Administration to borrow from the First

National Bank of Nevada up to $2 million at the current

HHFA "take out rate" for interim financing purposes for

purchase of land, construction of buildings and related

costs in connection with the construction of Dormitory or

Dormitories on property adjacent to the University of Nevada

Campus at Reno.



RESOLUTION 63-4



WHEREAS, by Chapter 282, Statues of Nevada, 1961, the Board

of Regents of the University of Nevada was authorized to

undertake certain building projects at the Reno Campus,

namely a Men's Dormitory costing $1,200,00 and a Women's

Dormitory costing $1,200,000; and



WHEREAS, the cost of such building projects was further

authorized thereby to be financed by issuance by the Board

of Regents, University of Nevada, of Revenue Certificates,

and the amortization and payment thereof out of proceeds

derived from the use of said constructed facilities; and



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents, University of Nevada, has

applied for and the Housing and Home Finance Agency has

reserved $2,400,000 (Projects CH-Nev-4(D) and CH-Nev-5(D))

and approval of the final application is considered imminent

and such approval will result in a contract between the

University of Nevada and the Federal Government providing

that the Government will purchase $2,400,000 of said revenue

certificates, the University of Nevada's obligation and in-

debtedness, in connection with the financing of such con-

struction projects, including land acquisition; and



WHEREAS, it is necessary in connection with such construc-

tion program to purchase approximately 5 acres of land from

the Roman Catholic Bishop of Reno, A Corporation Sole,

Robert J. Dwyer, Incumbent, and $331,405 must be placed in

escrow for this purpose June 28, 1963; and



WHEREAS, it is also necessary to have interim financing dur-

ing construction prior to the sale of the revenue certifi-

cates and First National Bank of Nevada has tentatively a-

greed to loan up to $2,000,000 for this purpose bearing in-

terest at the current H. H. F. A. "take-out rate" (assumed

to be 3.5 percent), said interest to accrue from the date

advances are made under the commitment; and



WHEREAS, it is the intention of the Board of Regents, Uni-

versity of Nevada, that the loan for interim financing shall

be repaid to the First National Bank of Nevada from the pro-

ceeds of the sale of the said revenue certificates to the

Government of the United States of America, acting through

the Housing and Home Finance Agency.



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED:



1. That the offer of the loan for interim financing of such

property acquisition and construction, upon the terms

and conditions as made by the First National Bank of

Nevada to the University of Nevada, be accepted.



2. That the Chairman of the Board of Regents or the Presi-

dent, University of Nevada, be authorized to execute all

proper and necessary documents in connection with the

loan for such interim financing on behalf of the Board

of Regents, University of Nevada, with the First Nation-

al Bank of Nevada.



23. Audit of Selected Agency Accounts (Fund Group 81)



President Armstrong presented the report of Mr. Humphrey.

The University serves as bank for a variety of student

funds. The Associated Students University of Nevada (in-

cluding the Bookstore) Fund is audited annually by an in-

dependent auditor and upon request of the President last

Fall, a copy was filed with the Business Office. The

Legislative Auditor was recently requested to prepare a

more complete and detailed audit of the Student Union Board

Fund for the 1963-64 year. Their reply was that they will

not do this for agency funds and that a cash balance audit

is all that will be prepared.



President Armstrong recommended that the Associated Students

(ASUN), the Confederated Students of Nevada Southern, and

the Student Union Board be required to submit to the Board

of Regents an annual audit report prepared by an independent

auditor, either a Certified Public Accountant or a Register-

ed Accountant, effective for the fiscal year ending June 30,

1963. The President further recommended that the remaining

Agency Fund accounts be required, effective July 1, 1963 to

keep their records on forms provided by the Office of the

Business Manager, to enable the Business Office to post-

audit for the protection of the students and the University.

The cash balance audit will continue to be completed as a

part of the Legislative post-audit.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

unanimously that the above recommendation be approved.



24. Aircraft, National Science Foundation Grant



President Armstrong discussed the request of Professor

Mordy to acquire release of an aircraft for the University

of Nevada, to be used, as required, for the Nevada Atmos-

pheric Research Project under grant from National Science

Foundation. This involves instrumentation and equipping

of an aircraft for measurement of condensation nuclei,

drops, size, distribution and existence in clouds, as part

of the Desert Research Institute Weather Modification pro-

gram in Elko. A surplus Beechcraft C-45 is available with-

out charge at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Tucson, Arizona.

All expenses for repairs, operating, insuring and acquiring

will be met from non-appropriated funds of the Desert Re-

search Institute. A resolution is requested authorizing

transfer of the plane, indicating that the University will

accept it, that funds are available to pay for bringing it

up to Federal Aviation Agency specifications, and to trans-

port the plane to Reno.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously that the Administration be authorized to prepare

such a resolution and to proceed to acquire the plane.



25. Judge John R. Ross



The Regents, at their last meeting, took action to have

prepared a suitable resolution in memory of Judge Ross.

The resolution, as follows, was here presented and signed

by members of the Board. The original will be sent to

Mrs. Ross, with copies to the son and daughters.



RESOLUTION #63-3

Nevada, bringing honor and recognition upon his alma mater;

and



WHEREAS, his brilliant career as an attorney and as a member

ideals of integrity and justice; and



WHEREAS, his life was a proud symbol of those qualities of

independence in thinking and action that are the real tra-

ditions of Nevada; and

standing of his fellow man will never be forgotten by all

who knew him;

Board, that the National League for Nursing's Collegiate

Board of Review, at its meeting on April 27, 1963, voted to

grant initial accreditation to the baccalaureate program

offered by the Orvis School of Nursing, which includes

Public Health Nursing and a plan whereby Registered Nurse

students are admitted to this program.



28. Medical Examinations, Osteopathic



President Armstrong read a letter from Dean Carlson re-

questing information on the acceptability of Osteopathic

Physicians in completing University medical examination

forms for student applicants. President Armstrong referred

to Regents' minutes of August 24-25, 1962, when the subject

was then discussed and agreement reached to look further

into the matter. Deputy Attorney General Finnegan reiter-

ated the previous opinion of Mr. Porter that the University

should accept examinations by Osteopaths in keeping with

provisions of Nevada Revised Statutes 633.140.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously that Dean Carlson be notified that University

regulations permit student examinations by Osteopaths.



29. Next Meeting



A 2-day meeting of the Board was suggested by Dr. Armstrong

to give him an opportunity to present some detailed reports

concerning long range future planning of the University.

July 26-27, 1963 was set, at which time also the corner-

stone would be laid for the Engineering-Mines building and

the Atmospherium will be dedicated.



30. Indian Culture



Dr. Anderson discussed the subject. In the past there has

been discussion concerning the University's participation

in a study to preserve the Indian culture of the area. Dr.

Anderson proposed that a Regents' committee be appointed to

investigate the feasibility of establishing a University

inter-disciplinary functioning unit as an American Indian

Center or American Indian Institute. He thought the Uni-

versity concern might include all American Indian nations

or tribes, but especially those of the Great Basin, and

become a depository for documents pertaining to them. He

further mentioned tribal councils, scholarhips, and other

means of aiding the Indians and preserving their culture.

He proposed that the first committee be composed of Regents

and later a Faculty and Adminstration Committee could be

appointed.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously that such a Regents' Committee be appointed.



Chairman Grant appointed Dr. Anderson, Chairman, Mrs. Magee

and Mr. Jacobsen.



31. Music, Nevada Southern



Mr. Germain spoke of the need for a Music Department at

Nevada Southern, and suggested that the Administration

begin to plan for procurement of instruments or to include

this item in the next biennial budget.



32. University History



Dr. Anderson spoke of the need for steps to be taken to

bring the history of the University up to date. He thought

the Centennial year would be a good target date. President

Armstrong asked Mr. Laxalt to study the matter and give him

some idea of what it might cost in time and money.



33. Track Team



Mr. Hug spoke of the truly remarkable record of this year's

track team, and suggested that the Regents officially take

note of the outstanding record.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried unani-

mously that the Secretary write a note on behalf of the

Regents commending the track team and Coach Dankworth for

their contribution to the University's Athletic Program.



34. Assistant to the President



Mr. Hug suggested again that the Administration continue to

search for someone to head the University Development Pro-

gram. Mr. Jacobsen again suggested that the News Bureau

start preparation of a brochure showing what programs or

areas were hurt or eliminated due to reduction in the Uni-

versity's appropriation.



The meeting adjourned at 3:40 P.M.



The next meeting will be held on July 26-27, 1963 in Reno.
