Guide for the Selection Committee

1. The recipient must have indicated traits of
leadership - or clearly demonstrated initiative
(not just in theory).

2. The recipient must have clearly demonstrated that
he can do satisfactory work in his College stud-
ies. Do not send a student who will always be on
the ragged edge, or often on probation. Don't
send a genius or a grind either, unless he is an
all around person.

3. Send only a student who has the character, brains
and ambition to graduate from College. Do not
send a student who will drop out, or get married
and drop out, or who will be unable to adjust to
College life and being unhappy, will drop out.

4. Send a student who has above average intelligence.

5. Send only a student with high ideals, good charac-
ter.

6. Do not send a student who will be over 21 years of
age at high school graduation time.

7. Send only a student who has resided in Nevada for
more than 2 years.

8. Send only a graduate of a fully accredited high
school in Nevada.

9. Do not send a student whose family could easily
pay his way through the University of Nevada.
These scholarships are for students who need
financial help to attend College.

10. Pick an alternate on the same basis you have
principal recipient.

11. Do not be afraid to announce that "no student now
meets the specifications of the scholarships", if
such is the case; for one of the quickest ways to
lose these scholarships is to have them abused.

12. Always remember, if the number of these scholar-
ships should ever be reduced, the schools with the
highest proportion of students who graduated from
the University will naturally have the best chance
to keep the scholarships.

10) From Kermit G. Gardner, B. S., University of Nevada,
1942, $50 under the General Electric Corporate Alumnus
Program whereby matching contribution will be made by
General Electric Company.

11) From W. Scott Hill, B. S., University of Nevada, 1923,
$50 under the same General Electric Program.

12) From Moritz M. Zenoff, Publisher of Boulder City News
and Henderson Home News, establishment of a scholarship
to be known as The Moritz Zenoff Scholarship in Jour-
nalism, $100 annually, upon the following conditions:

The Moritz Zenoff Scholarship in Journalism
Department of Journalism
University of Nevada

1. Donor: Moritz M. Zenoff, publisher, Boulder City
News and Henderson Home News.

2. Sum: $100 annually to be paid the recipient at the
rate of $50 a semester through the University of
Nevada Comptroller.

3. Selection: The recipient shall be selected by the
faculty of the Department of Journalism and the
University of Nevada Committee on Scholarships.

4. Qualification of recipient:

a. Must be committed to preparing for a career
in Journalism.

b. Must be registered in the course leading to the
Bachelor of Arts Journalism degree.

c. Must be a Sophomore, Junior or Senior student
during the year he holds the scholarship.

d. Must have achieved and must maintain, both in
Journalism and in other courses, at least the
grade average required for graduation.

e. Must show promise and talent in the profession
of Journalism and be dedicated to it.

5. Alternate: In case the recipient fails to maintain
the qualifications, the scholarship shall pass to
an alternate who is qualified and who is chosen by
the same method.

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the gifts be
accepted and that a note of thanks be written to each donor.

7. Bequests

President Stout made the following report:

1) Notice of Petition for Probate for the Will of Helen
Dalton was received and forwarded to the Attorney Gen-
eral, who advised that there is no contest, and that
the Will provides for a $5000 scholarship at the Uni-
versity.

2) Printed copy of the Will of Daniel C. Jackling was re-
ceived from the Attorney for the Estate. The Will
provides for $25,000 for the "Daniel Jackling Student
Loan Fund" for worthy students in the Mining and Metal-
lurgy Department of the University of Nevada.

8. Loan Funds

Following a general discussion on loan funds, their value,
terms and extent of use, Administration was asked to have
a study made of the entire loan fund area and to submit a
report to the Regents, with recommendations for putting
them to greater use.

9. Demers' Loan

Referring to Regents' action at the meeting of April 26,
1956, Mr. Hayden reported that a loan from the General En-
dowment Fund has been offered to Dr. Demers in the amount
of $1500, but that Dr. Demers has indicated he needs $2000
and is thinking it over for a few days.

10. Correspondence Course Contract

President Stout and Dean Wood reported on the proposed con-
tract with the United States Armed Forces Institute whereby
the University of Nevada would become one of the cooperating
agencies to offer correspondence courses to members of the
armed forces. Regular courses now offered by correspondence
would be made available to members of the armed forces, and
1/2 the listed fee would be paid by the Armed Forces Insti-
tute, the other 1/2 by the individual taking the course.

Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that the President
be authorized to sign the contract, which is effective July
1, 1956, for one year.

11. Nuclear Engineering Course

President Stout presented the following report and recom-
mendation from the Academic Committee, and Dean Wood dis-
cussed it with the Regents:

That instruction in Nuclear Engineering begin with the
1956-57 acadeic year and that the program include the
following 4 courses:

1. Atomic and Nuclear Physics, 3 credits, 2nd
semester (Junior year).
2. Reactor Physics, 3 credits, 1st semester
(Senior year).
3. Nuclear Engineering I, 3 credits, 1st semester
(Senior year).
4. Nuclear Engineering II, 3 credits, 2nd semester
(Senior year).

The first two courses can be taught by the present staff
of the Department of Physics. The last two courses,
which could not be offered until the academic year 1957-
58, will require an additional staff member with special
competencies, training and experience in the design,
construction and operation of a nuclear reactor. He
would need to have the security clearance required by
the Atomic Energy Commission and be able to initiate and
supervise research projects. The limited program pro-
posed would require funds for the installation of a
small experimental nuclear reactor. For the biennium
1957-59, the total cost of equipment and personnel for
the proposed option in Nuclear Engineering, it is esti-
mated, would be $50,000. This estimate is based upon a
careful analysis and study made during the past several
months by a University committee of which Dr. Leifson
is Chairman.

Prior to its consideration by the Academic Committee the
proposal made by Dr. Leifson's study committee to recom-
mend the establishment of a Nuclear Engineering program
was reviewed and endorsed by the faculty of the College
of Engineering. The proposed courses to be offered by
the present Physics Department staff have been approved
by the faculty of the College of Arts and Science.

Since every phase of American industry is affected by
the development of nuclear power and since there is a
rapidly increasing demand for men with a good back-
ground in nuclear science and the principles of reactor
design and operation, and since the Federal Government
is vitally concerned with the stimulation of interest
in the development by Universities of Nuclear Engineer-
ing instructional and research programs, the Academic
Committee urges the most careful consideration of this
proposal.

Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that the report be
accepted and that Nuclear Engineering courses be instituted,
in accord with the recommendation.

12. Traffic Code

Report was made by Mr. Poolman, who distributed mimeographed
copies of the proposed Traffic Code, effective May 1956.
Two uniformed patrolmen have been employed.

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the Traffic
Code dealing with parking on the Campus be approved.

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the recommenda-
tion be approved that all fines and fees collected by the
Comptroller's office under the newly adopted Traffic Code,
be placed in a special fund to be used for improving and
developing traffic and parking facilities, upon recommenda-
tion of the University Traffic Committee, with approval of
the President, and of the Board of Regents in any major
improvement projects.

13. Victory Heights

Letter from the wife of a graduating Senior was presented
in which she requested permission for them to remain in
Victory Heights Housing Project for one more year, in view
of the special circumstances surrounding their case. (Mrs.
Gerald Swanson)

Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that the action of
the Regents (April 2, 1955) concerning occupancy of Victory
Heights units be amended to continue housing provisions for
present residents beyond the Bachelor's degree for a period
of one year, to the extent that no more than 3 units will be
filled during the coming school year.

14. Wier Property

Attention of the University Administration was called to the
fact that the property on East Ninth Street, belonging to
the Wier Estate, is to be sold. Investigation was made by
Mr. Poolman as to its possible value to the University, and
the following report submitted:

The Wier property is immediately adjacent to the proper-
ty now occupied by the Student Union building. This
property was acquired by the University in 1933, under
the following conditions: "To have and to hold unto
said Grantee, its successors and assigns forever, to the
use of said University of Nevada, for student business
activities only; provided, however, that, in the event
the Grantee or its successors shall sell said described
lots, pieces and parcels of land, there shall be, by
said Grantee, or its successors making such sale, paid
to the Treasurer of the State of Nevada for the General
Fund of said state, and sum of $6500 from the proceeds
of such sale, according to Section 2 of said Act of the
Legislature hereinbefore mentioned."

The Wier property under consideration is a long, narrow
piece of land being approximately 40 feet by 120 feet.
It appears obvious therefore, that any use of such land
would have to be made in conjunction with the property
now owned by the University and subject to the afore-
mentioned restrictions.

It is possible that the student body will want to move
the bookstore from its present rented location into
the Student Union building upon completion of the Jot
Travis building. The land surrounding the old Student
Union building, including the Wier property might then
conveniently be used as a parking area for student
vehicles, in conjunction with this bookstore use, or
it is possible that the student body might be interested
in using this land for a paid parking lot which would
be operated by the ASUN.

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that consideration
be postponed until more information is received from the
Executrix of the Estate regarding appraisal and conditions
of sale of the property.

By consensus, it was agreed that the conditional deed, re-
ferred to in the above report, be referred to the Attorney
General for his opinion as to the University's position
with regard to it.

15. Work Week

President Stout reported that at meeting of the Administra-
tive Committee, it was decided to recommend to the Board of
Regents that the University clerical staff and Buildings
and Grounds staff, so far as feasible, be placed on a 40-
hour, 5-day week, during the Summer months, with skeleton
staff on Saturday mornings, on a trial basis. President
Stout requested authorization to put the plan into effect,
starting June 11, 1956.

Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the President
be given authority to put the plan into operation for the
current Summer.

16. Candidates for Degrees

President Stout presented the list of candidates for degrees
which had been approved by the Dean and the faculty of the
College concerned, and by the Dean of the Graduate School
in the case of Advanced Degrees, upon completion of work at
the end of the 2nd semester of the current school year.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the candi-
dates be approved and that they be granted the indicated
degrees, as follows:

17. Sales Tax

Chairman Ross had received a request from an Association
being formed to advocate continuing the sales tax asking
that the Regents express its stand on the matter. After
general discussion,

Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that the following
resolution be adopted:

Believing that the Nevada sales and use tax is an
equitable form of taxation and one whose existence is
necessary to the welfare of the State, the Board of
Regents of the University of Nevada goes on record as
favoring its continuance, not only for the needs of
education, but for the proper mainteance of the many
functions of State government.

The meeting adjourned at 11:40 A.M. until the next regular meet-
ing, unless a meeting is called by the Chairman.
