        and Marketing for the support of the Tomato project, al-
        falfa and fertilization studies.  This was arbitrarily
        cut to $32,000 by the Senate (the amount we received in
        1947), cut again by the Assembly to $24,000 and passed
        for $24,000 or $12,000 per year.  If we can budget a
        minimum of $21,000 per year for these projects the gov-
        ernment will offset it by a like amount and in addition
        our allocating a minimum of $21,000 per year will make
        available to the University an additional $8,000 for the
        Feeding and Stock Breeding project and approximately
        another $8,000 for this or similar work without offset
        from other funds.  In other words, by allocating $21,000
        per year from University funds, the University will re-
        ceive $21,000 from Federal funds as an offset plus an
        additional $16,000 from Federal funds without the neces-
        sity of offset.

        Therefore, considering the importance of the Stock Breed-
        ing project to the farmers of the State and the prestige
        it would give the University in Agricultural work, I
        would suggest that $5,000 of the June 30, 1949 balance
        of $15,000 be used as a supplement to the State appro-
        priation of $12,000 for the ensuing year, making a total
        of $17,000 for the ensuing year from State funds.  The
        remaining $4,000 to come from Experimental Station Sales
        fund, which has already been revised to include $4,000.
        The $21,000 for 1949-50 would then be made up as follows:

            $12,000  State Appropriation
              5,000  Public Service Funds
              4,000  Station Sales
            $21,000  Total

    Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that the above
    matter as outlined by Dr. Gorman be approved.

Dean Creel left at 3:50 P.M.

At 3:55 P.M. the Board recessed until the following morning.

The recessed meeting of the Board of Regents was called to order

 (2)  Retirement

      Eligible for retirement on June 30, 1949:  G. W. Sears,
      Professor of Chemistry, and F. B. Headley, Head of the
      Department of Farm Development of the Experiment Station.

Reporter Armstrong came into the meeting at 10:50 A.M.

 (3)  Mackay Museum

      Halls, lecture rooms and offices in the Mackay School of
      Mines building have been repainted, leaving only the Museum
      unpainted and with no money in the budget to meet the ex-
      pense.

      Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Hilliard, passed
      unanimously that the Comptroller be authorized to have the
      Museum repainted at a cost not to exceed $2500 to be paid
      from the income of the Mackay Endowment.

 (4)  Reno Army Air Base Boilers

      Since the State Planning Board decided not to use the
      boilers purchased from the Reno Air Base in the University
      Heating Plant, they were of no use to the University.  Per-
      mission was secured from the War Assets Administration to
      advertise the boilers for sale.  The Ocean Shore Iron Works
      of San Francisco bid $4150 and Brown and Anderson of Reno
      bid $4844, which bid was accepted.  Purchase price of $910
      was replaced in the University funds, leaving $305 paper
      profit.  Transfer papers and release for the University
      have been received.

      Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Hilliard, passed
      unanimously that the action of Dr. Gorman be approved
      and that he be thanked for a good job well done.

 (5)  New Gymnasium Accoustics

      Charles (Ty) Short, University of Nevada student, is writ-
      ing a thesis on the improvement of accoustical qualities
      in the new Gymnasium.  After consulting with experts, Mr.
      Short recommends the use of 6 reflex parabola speakers to
      be purchased at a cost not to exceed $750.

      Motion by Mr. Sheerin, seconded by Mr. Hilliard, passed
      unanimously that the expenditure of $750 be authorized
      for the above purpose.

 (6)  Business Officers Meeting

      Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Sheerin, passed
      unanimously that Mr. Hayden attend the meeting of the
      Association of Business Officers of Western Universities
      to be held in Denver, Colorado, June 26, 27, 28 and that
      he be granted the customary travel allowance for attendance
      at such meetings.

Board of Athletic Control (See President Moseley's recommendation
on Policy)

    At 11 A.M. members of the Board of Athletic Control met with
    the Regents as follows:  James Mc Nabney, E. M. Beesley, M.
    W. Deming, Harry Frost, Coach Sheeketski, Joe Libke, Carl
    Robinson, Paul Reimer; present also were William Blakely and
    George Basta representing the Alumni Executive Committee.

Reporters Armstrong, Rogers and Bennyhoff entered the meeting at
this point.

    Chairman Ross presented the request of the Board of Athletic
    Control for $2400 from general funds to be applied to the
    salary of the Athletic Director.  Dr. Gorman read a report
    showing a balance due from the Downtown Athletic Scholarship
    Committee of $25,742.24 ($18,746.20 to June 30, 1948, and
    $6,996.04 from June 30, 1948 to April 30, 1949).

    Motion by Mr. Sheerin, seconded by Mr. Hilliard, passed
    unanimously that the Regents approve the request of the
    Board of Athletic Control, who will, in turn, apply $2400
    to the Dining account.

    Mr. Frost thanked the Board for the action and for their
    continued cooperation.

    Mr. Blakely, President of the Alumni Association, intro-
    duced Mr. Basta who presented his proposal to enlarge the
    Stadium by securing donations of material and labor from
    general contractors and individual firms, a number of whom
    he has already contacted.  It is believed that sufficient
    donations can be secured to increase the seating capacity
    from its present 6900 in the Stadium plus 1200 in temporary
    bleachers to approximately 15,000.  Mr. Frost, speaking for
    the Board of Athletic Control, approved the proposal of Mr.
    Basta.

    Motion by Mr. Hilliard, seconded by Mr. Sheerin, passed
    unanimously that the Alumni Association be given the ap-
    proval of the Regents in carrying out the proposal as out-
    lined by Mr. Basta.

    Mr. Basta thanked the Board and stated that he will present
    plans for their approval when such plans are prepared.

Return to Comptroller Gorman's report.

 (7)  Pipe - Reno Army Air Base

      Authority was requested to transfer the larger size recent-
      ly obtained from the Reno Army Air Base for use on the Uni-
      versity Dairy Farm and to transfer the smaller size for use
      at the Knoll Creek Station in Elko County for irrigation
      purposes.

      Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that allocation
      of the pipe be approved, and that such allocation be under
      the direction of Dean Creel and Director Fleming.

 (8)  Architect Ed S. Parsons

      The original contract with Mr. Parsons provided for a final
      payment of $3500 for preparation of proposal and contract
      forms, the issurance of certificates of payment, the keep-
      ing of accounts, the general administration and supervision
      of the work.  However, since the plans are not to be used,
      payment has not been made.

      Motion by Mr. Sheerin passed unanimously that the Regents
      approve the agreement as approved by the Attorney General
      providing that if and when the plans of Mr. Parsons for
      a Classroom building are used, the final payment of $3500
      be made to Mr. Parsons.

 (9)  Highway Request for Gravel from the Dairy Farm was present-
      ed.

      Motion by Mr. Arentz passed unanimously that the Chairman
      of the Board be authorized to sign an agreement with the
      State of Highway Department to remove gravel from the Uni-
      versity Dairy Farm, the Highway Department to pay 3 cents
      per cubic yard or 2 cents per ton for the gravel removed
      and to repair or relocate any ditches to the satisfaction
      of the University at no cost to the University.

(10)  Cutts Wills

      Two Wills of Charles F. Cutts have been filed in Court and
      the Court has been asked to determine which Will is en-
      titled to probate.

      Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Sheerin, passed
      unanimously that if the other beneficiaries contest the
      Will, the University will join with them.

(11)  Sullivan Will

      Notice has been received that Mrs. Vern Sullivan, a resi-
      dent of Las Vegas and a graduate of the University, died
      on April 5, 1949, and bequeathed $500 to the University.

(12)  Darlington Will

      Notice has been received that Lilyan M. D. Darlington, who
      died in Reno on March 11, 1949, has named the University
      Department of Astronomy as a legatee.

(13)  Daniels Will

      Lowell Daniels of Tonopah left a bequest in his Will to
      the University of Nevada.

(14)  Henry Albert Prize

      Mrs. Albert sent a check for $100 to purchase one Debenture
      of American Telephone and Telegraph and advised that she
      has purchased two additional Debentures which would be
      turned over to the University.  Since the University owns
      7 Rights of purchase, Mrs. Albert had to purchase on the
      market 12 Rights (6 Rights for one Debenture).

      Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that the Univer-
      sity remit to Mrs. Albert the amount it will receive from
      its one unused Right.

(15)  Electrical Building Repair

      Request has been made by Professor Sandorf, with approval
      of Dean Palmer, for $2900 for improvements in the Elec-
      trical Engineering building, some structural changes in-
      volved.

      Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that $2900 be
      included in the next budget after July 1, for such repairs,
      the work to be done subject to the approval of the Build-
      ings and Grounds Committee of the Regents.

(16)  Scales for Farm

      Scales worth $8500 were secured from the War Assets Ad-
      ministration Surplus Property at a cost to the University
      of $45.

      Motion by Mr. Arentz passed unanimously that the bid of
      A. Bevilacqua of Reno in the amount of $1729 for moving
      the scales from the Reno Army Air Base and reinstalling
      them at the University (Ladino) Dairy Farm be approved,
      and that Chairman Ross be authorized to sign such an
      agreement when approved by Mr. Hilliard.

The Board recessed at 12:30 noon for luncheon at the Dining Hall,
and reconvened in the President's office at 2:25 P.M.

Chairman Ross called the meeting to order.  The 4 Regents, the
President and reporters Trego and Armstrong were present.  Mr.
Fleming and Dean Creel also were present.

Director Fleming presented the request of the farmers and resi-
dents in and near Knoll Creek Station in Elko County for the
University to join with them in the building of a dam at a cost
of $250,000 for an electrification project.

Acting as a Board of Control for the Agricultural Experiment
Station

    Mr. Fleming was instructed to inform the authorities in
    charge that, under federal regulations, the University
    cannot enter into an agreement for more than one year, and
    that therefore, it is impossible to join with the residents
    of Elko County in a long range project.

At 2:55 P.M. reporter Trego left the meeting.

At 3:05 Mr. Creel and Mr. Fleming returned with their budgets and
salary increases, which the Regents accepted for later considera-
tion.

Survey of Campus

    Mr. Harry S. Allen, Director of the Nevada Taxpayers Associ-
    ation, is requesting permission to make a survey of the Uni-
    versity on a fact finding basis, covering only adminstrative
    management.

    Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that permission
    be granted, provided no expense is involved for the Univer-
    sity.

Sirkegian Memorial Fund

    President Moseley read a letter from Mr. Arthur J. O'Connor
    of Kimberly, Nevada, stating that $1102 had been contributed
    by friends of Sirkegian to establish a memorial loan fund.

    Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Hilliard, passed unani-
    mously that a letter of thanks be written to Mr. O'Connor
    and to Mrs. Sirkegian accepting the money and that the mat-
    ter be referred to the Director of the School of Mines and
    Mrs. Sirkegian for final disposition, with the suggestion
    that a small interest rate be charged for loans from the
    fund.

Fallon Farm

    President Moseley read a letter from Senator Mc Carran ask-
    ing for the Regents to state their position on the Newlands
    Farm at Fallon.  The matter was reviewed and the Regents
    reiterated their former action, as follows:

        The Regents had received word that a number of Experi-
        mental Station farms were going to be sold and that the
        University was being offered the opportunity to get the
        Newlands Farm at Fallon fee simple, providing that it
        would continue existing projects on the farm, and that
        otherwise the farm would be sold at public auction.
        The University, having considerable financial stake in
        the farm already and feeling that it would be to best
        interest of the State, offered to take the farm pro-
        viding it could be obtained in fee simple.  The intent
        was that when all those projects now started were com-
        pleted (probably 6 to 8 years) the farm would probably
        be sold, depending, of course, on the State Legislature.

The Board recessed at 4 P.M. to join with the Honorary Board of
Visitors and the graduating class for tea at the President's
home.

The recessed meeting of the Board was called to order at 9:45
A.M., Saturday, June 4, 1949, in the President's office.  Pres-
ent:  Regents Hilliard, Sheerin, Arentz, Cahlan, Ross; and
President Moseley.

A.  Recommendations for Degrees

        Hon. Silas E. Ross
        Chairman, Board of Regents
        University of Nevada
        Reno, Nevada

        Dear Mr. Ross:

        As previously submitted to you orally, I beg leave to
        present herewith my written resignation as President
        at the University of Nevada, effective July 1, 1949.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                         /s/ John O. Moseley
                             President

    Motion by Mr. Hilliard, seconded by Mr. Arentz, passed with
    Mr. Ross voting "no" and all other Regents voting "aye", that
    the resignation be accepted.

    Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Sheerin, passed unani-
    mously that, in consideration of past services, and in view
    of the fact that the Regents feel, in part, responsibility
    for some of the things that have happened, President Moseley
    be retained on the payroll for the full amount of his salary
    for one year, the method of payment and type of services to
    be determined later.

    Chairman Ross read the following letter:

                                            April 21, 1949

        To the Honorable, the Board of Regents
        University of Nevada
        Reno, Nevada

        Gentlemen:

        Since 1911 I have served the University of Nevada as
        Comptroller, Treasurer, Purchasing Agent, Military
        Property Custodian and Curator, and since 1936 as Vice
        President, Comptroller, Treasurer, Purchasing Agent,
        Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds, Military
        Property Custodian and Curator.  During the period
        from September 2, 1943 to June 30, 1944 in addition
        to the above duties, I served as Acting President.

        In view of my many years of service in these capacities,
        I hereby make formal application for one year's leave
        of absence from July 1, 1949 to June 30, 1950, on full
        pay at my present salary, and that on July 1, 1950,
        having then reached retirement age, that I be retired
        under the terms of the University Retirement Plan at
        an annual salary of $1800.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                         /s/ C. H. Gorman,
                             Vice President and Comptroller

    Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Cahlan, passed with
    Mr. Sheerin voting "no", and all other Regents voting "aye",
    that the request of Dr. Gorman be granted.

Record of Dr. Moseley

    Regent Sheerin expressed the desire to have it clearly under-
    stood by the public that Dr. Moseley's resignation comes at
    his own suggestion, and presented the following statement,
    which, together with a statement of his accomplishments as
    President, would be released to the Press:

        The Board of Regents of the University of Nevada, having
        with regret received and accepted the resignation of Dr.
        John O. Moseley, President of the University of Nevada,
        which had been tendered previously on many occasions be-
        cause of his desire to enter into another field of work,
        takes this opportunity of endorsing and placing on record
        the following accomplishments of the Administration of
        President Moseley, 1944-49.  We feel that the impress of
        Dr. Moseley's personality and ability will remain long
        upon the University as a tribute to his good work.  We
        wish him well in whatever fields of endeavor he may in
        the future be engaged.

    Motion by Mr. Arentz passed unanimously that the matter be
    tabled for the time being to give the Regents an opportunity
    to look it over.

Applications for Position of Comptroller

    Chairman Ross presented the application of Mr. Kerwin Foley
    and Mr. Louis K. Hawkins for the position of Comptroller of
    the University.  No application had been received from the
    present Assistant to the Comptroller, Mr. Hayden.

    Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Cahlan passed unani-
    mously that Mr. Hayden be retained as Comptroller.

    Mr. Hayden was called in, accepted the position with thanks,
    and stated that he will gladly work under the President of
    the University and that he will cooperate to the utmost with
    the President and the Regents.

Reporter Bennyhoff left the meeting at 11:20 A.M.

    Motion by Mr. Hilliard, seconded by Mr. Cahlan, passed unani-
    mously that the salary of Perry W. Hayden as Comptroller of
    the University be fixed at $6100, effective July 1, 1949.

Wittwer Salary

    Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Cahlan, passed unani-
    mously that Eldon E. Wittwer's salary as Director of Resident
    Teaching in Agriculture be fixed, effective September 1,
    1949, at $6420.

Hayden Title and Duties

    Motion by Arentz, seconded by Mr. Cahlan, passed unanimously
    that, in addition to being Comptroller, Perry W. Hayden be
    named Treasurer of the University, Military Property Custodi-
    an and Curator, effective July 1, 1949.

At 12:35 noon the Board recessed for luncheon in the University
Dining Hall and reconvened in the President's office at 1:30 P.M.

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Ross with all Regents
and the President present.

Appointment of an Acting President

    By unanimous agreement of the Board of Regents, Colonel
    Gilbert E. Parker was appointed as Acting President of the
    University for one year beginning July 1, 1949, at a salary
    of $8000 for the year plus the usual entertainment fund,
    with the understanding that he is to move into the home on
    the Campus on September 1, 1949.

    Colonel Parker met with the Board of Regents and agreed to
    accept the position of Acting President on the above terms.

Audit of the University

    Motion by Mr. Sheerin passed unanimously that the State
    Auditor be requested to make an audit of the University as
    of June 30, 1949; and that all necessary transfer of signa-
    tures be taken care of with the various banks in which the
    University has deposits or safety deposit boxes.

University Physician

    Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Hilliard, passed unani-
    mously that, effective September 1, 1949, Homer L. Lawder, at
    a salary of $7000 per year, payable in 12 monthly install-
    ments, provided the money is available and provided that Dr.
    Lawder secures a State license or is otherwise qualified to
    perform the duties of his office.

Employee Past Retirement Age

    Victor E. Cokefair, Inspector in the Food and Drugs Depart-
    ment, was past 70 years of age when the University Retire-
    ment Plan went into effect and was, therefore, not eligible
    for participation.

    Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that the matter of
    some retirement compensation for Mr. Cokefair be referred
    back to Commissioner Wayne Adams to see if any money is
    available from this fund which can be used to pay Mr. Coke-
    fair for nominal duties in the Department.

W. F Hoskins of the Chemistry Department, having been assigned
nominal duties at a nominal rate of pay, can be continued on his
present arrangement.

Fred Woolcock, Building Custodian of the Mackay School of Mines,
having rejected the University Retirement Plan, the University is
unable to provide any retirement compensation for him.

Reporter Armstrong left the meeting at 2:30 P.M.

Salary Increases - Non-Academic

    Since no salary increases have been made to non-academic em-
    ployees of the University, motion by Mr. Cahlan passed unani-
    mously that the Departmental budgets be referred to the Comp-
    troller and the academic Deans for possible revision to see
    if some funds can be made available for these purposes.

Advisory Council for Retirement and Extension Workers

    President Moseley presented a petition signed by M. R.
    Miller, Thomas Buckman and Mark Menke asking that an Advisory
    Council be set up for Experiment Station and Extension Divi-
    sion workers on the same principle as the Faculty Advisory
    Council for the academic division of the University.

    Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Hilliard, passed unani-
    mously that the petition be tabled for action at the next
    regular meeting, during which time more information can be
    secured.

Cline Retirement

    President Moseley read a letter from Mr. Creel, dated May
    31, 1949, stating that Mr. L. E. Cline now asked that he be
    permanently retired, effective June 30, 1949, and that he be
    granted such benefits as are due him under the University
    Retirement System, commencing July 1, 1949.

    Motion by Mr. Arentz passed unanimously that the Regents re-
    new their previous offer to Mr. Cline that the University
    will match whatever payments are due Mr. Cline from the
    Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association.

Artemisia Books

    At 3 P.M. Gene Mastroianni, Graduate Manager, and Bob Kent,
    Business Manager for the Artemisia, appeared before the Re-
    gents to request that the Regents pay $5 per copy for the
    Artemisia since the price has been increased to the students
    and the Artemisia will be published at a loss without this
    University support.

    Motion by Mr. Cahlan, seconded by Mr. Hilliard, passed unani-
    mously that the Regents agree to purchase 100 copies at $5
    per copy.

Women's Dormitory Rates

    Motion by Mr. Arentz, seconded by Mr. Sheerin, passed unani-
    mously confirming the mail vote adopting the following reso-
    lution:

        RESOLVED, that room rent in the Women's Dormitories be
        increased for the academic year 1949-50 by 33 1/3% over
        current rates.

    The Comptroller was directed to set up and keep such records
    as would determine, so far as possible, a cost and expense
    analysis in total and per person, including all expenses
    applicable to the operation of the Dormitories.

Salary Adjustments (10 months basis)

    President Moseley read a letter signed by Dr. Beesley as
    Chairman of the Faculty Advisory Council asking that the
    method of figuring salary adjustments when the faculty
    salaries were changed from a 12 to a 10 months basis, be
    reviewed.

    Motion by Mr. Arentz passed unanimously that the matter be
    tabled for action of the next meeting of the Board.

Faculty Committees on Retirement Plans

    President Moseley reported that the Faculty Committee ap-
    pointed to study the State Retirement System will submit
    its report to the Regents when the matter has been given
    further study.  For the present, the Committee recommends
    that "the University continue under the present plan for
    another year or possibly two years, when the question be
    again examined on the basis of additional data that will
    then be available."

J. P. Puffinbarger

    At the request of Professor Puffinbarger, President Moseley
    had written to the Attorney General concerning Mr. Puffin-
    barger's request for promotion, based on a State Legislative
    enactment that no person shall lose his seniority status by
    reason of being absent on military duty.  A letter from Mr.
    Annand, Deputy Attorney General, states:

        Section 7733 N. C. L. 1929 makes it the duty of the
        President of the University, under the direction of
        the Board of Regents, to manage all matters connected
        with the institution.

        It, therefore, appears that the Board of Regents and the
        President pass on the qualifications of Professors em-
        ployed at the institution.

Statement of President Moseley's Accomplishments

    Motion was made by Mr. Sheerin that the statement presented
    by him on Saturday morning concerning Dr. Moseley's resigna-
    tion, accompanied by a record of accomplishments, be released
    by the Regents for publicity throughout the State, in fair-
    ness to Dr. Moseley in view of the unfavorable publicity
    which has appeared in local papers.

    After some discussion, Mr. Arentz moved the question, and
    the motion passed unanimously.

Selection of a New President

    (1)  It was agreed that a list of specifications be prepared
         by Chairman Ross and submitted to the Regents for ap-
         proval.

    (2)  Motion by Mr. Sheerin, seconded by Mr. Cahlan, passed
         unanimously that all applications for the Presidency
         be referred to the Chairman for the reply that they will
         be placed on file and in due time will be presented for
         consideration of the Board.

The meeting adjourned at 5:10 P.M. until the next regular meeting
to be at the call of the Chairman
