UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA

BOARD OF REGENTS

June 2, 1962



The Board of Regents met on Saturday, June 2, 1962, in room 205,

Morrill Hall, Reno Campus. Present: Regents Anderson, Arnold,

Broadbent, Germain, Grant, Hug, Lombardi, Magee; Engineer Rogers,

Vice President Young, Business Manager Humphrey, and President

Armstrong. Chief Deputy Attorney General Porter was present as

Legal Adviser. Mr. Hancock, of the State Planning Board, was

present for items pertaining to the building program. Budget

Director Barrett was present as an observer. Messrs. Laxalt,

Dromiack and Joyce covered the meeting for the Press.



The meeting was called to order at 9:15 A.M. by Chairman Grant.



1. Minutes of Previous Meeting



Minutes of the meeting of April 28, 1962 were approved upon

motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Germain and unanimous

vote.



2. Regents' Building Committee & Master Planning



Messrs. Rodgers, Hurley and Kirkpatrick, representatives of

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, were present to discuss their

proposals on the overall planning program of the University.

They had met the previous afternoon with the Regents' Build-

ing Committee. President Armstrong reported on the Commit-

tee meeting referring to the minutes, as follows:



BOARD OF REGENTS BUILDING COMMITTEE

June 1, 1962



Present: Anderson, Arnold, Broadbent, Germain, Grant, Hug,

Lombardi, Magee; Armstrong, Young, Rogers; Hancock, State

Planning Board; Rogers, Kirkpatrick, Hurley, Skidmore,

Owings & Merrill; Broten, Lawlor, Physical Education.



1. Master Plan



Dr. Young reported on recent meetings of the Campus

Development Committee and the Master Plan Contact Com-

mittee with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. He reported

that there was agreement on two main points concerning

the Master Plan for the Reno Campus and that these

would require action by the Board of Regents.



a. The Committees agreed on the essential ingredients

of an "organic plan" which would designate general

areas of the Campus for academic purposes, Univer-

sity services, etc., with the exception that the

University would like to see the Evans Avenue area,

the area immediately north of Fine Arts, and the

west side of the quad reserved for academic uses.



b. The Committees agreed that financial considerations,

Campus needs, and principles of good planning all

dictate that the next academic buildings to be con-

structed should be located immediately north of the

present academic complex, which would place them in

the area occupied by Mackay Stadium. Other sites

were considered -- the Clark Field-Naval Reserve

area (proposed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill) and

locations on the quad (proposed by the University),

but very real disadvantages were pointed out in

regard to both of these suggestions.



Mr. John Rodgers of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill presented

a revised Master Plan for 7,000 FTE and an organic plan

for 15,000 FTE. He particularly commented on the rea-

sons dictating the placement of the Social Sciences and

and the Physical Sciences buildings on the site of the

present Mackay Stadium.



Dr. G. A. Broten and Mr. Glenn Lawlor were asked to

point out their needs for Physical Education and Ath-

letics and to discuss the probable effect of the tempo-

rary removal of the Stadium.



Mr. William Hancock explained that the State Planning

Board would support request for design and construction

money for the Physical Education facilities at the next

session of the Legislature. He suggested that it might

be wisest to go first for money to construct the fields

and track and to follow up with money for the field

house.



President Armstrong recommended that the Regents seek

design money for the Stadium and other Athletic fields

in 1963-64 and construction money for these facilities

plus design money for the field house and Physical

Education and ROTC facilities in 1964-65.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Hug, that the

general organic plan, as presented June 1, 1962, by

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, be approved, including the

proposed location of the Social Sciences building and

the Physical Sciences building in the Mackay Stadium

area, with the understanding that immediate funding will

be sought from the State Legislature for new Physical

Education facilities. Motion passed with Mr. Germain

dissenting. Mr. Hancock assured the Committee that

the State Planning Board would give its full support to

this action. He also said that members of the Legisla-

tive Commission would not oppose this move. The only

problem might be the ceiling on bonded indebtedness.



2. Dormitory and Cafeteria for Nevada Southern



Mr. Germain asked if the above action would jeopardize

the possible funding of a Dormitory and Cafeteria for

Nevada Southern. Mr. Rogers explained that it is now

possible to finance an initial increment of housing

through HHFA. However, the need must be justified.

Mr. Rogers was asked to obtain information from Dean

Carlson regarding a survey of student interest in and

need for housing and to follow through with HHFA.



3. Nevada Southern Master Plan



Mr. Rodgers briefly presented the preliminary draft of

a Master Plan for Nevada Southern (based on a possible

enrollment of 10,000 FTE). It presumed the acquisition

of additional land to the north to Flamingo Road and

south to Bond Road. Dr. Young pointed out that the

Contact Committee felt that a study should be made of

the possible acquisition of land to the southwest,

trading land to the northwest.



President Armstrong recommended that Skidmore, Owings

& Merrill representatives be directed to continue to

work with the University staff on this matter. It was

planned to have a staff meeting the week of June 11,

with a Regents' Building Committee meeting to follow

when recommendations are firmed up.



President Armstrong recommended that the Committee ask the

Board for authorization to approve an organic plan for the

Las Vegas Campus.



Kenneth E. Young

Acting Secretary



As stated in item 1 of the Building Committee minutes, a

revised Master Plan was presented, and motion carried to

approve it as presented.



Dr. Armstrong discussed the action taken by the Building

Committee in item 3, Nevada Southern Master Plan, and the

recommendations contained therein.



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

unanimously that the minutes of the Building Committee be

accepted, and that the actions taken be approved.



In view of the fact that Dr. Anderson will be away for the

greater part of the Summer, Chairman Grant appointed Regent

Lombardi to serve as Chairman of the Regents' Building Com-

mittee during the absence of Dr. Anderson.



Skidmore, Owings & Merrill representatives reported that

they will meet with members of the University staff on the

afternoon of June 12.



3. Approval of Check Registers



President Armstrong presented the attached Check Registers

as submitted by Business Manager and recommended approval.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the Check Registers be

approved.



4. Endowment Funds



Report and recommendations were submitted by Mr. Humphrey

and discussed by President Armstrong and Mr. Humphrey, as

follows:



1. I believe the present Managing Agency Agreement places

responsibilities on the Investment Committee which are

inappropriate and which are not being carried out. Mr.

Kwapli advises me that he considers the present ar-

rangement "extremely cumbersome". I suggest that the

terms of the agreement be modified to provide that the

First National Bank shall have full investment responsi-

bility to make such sales and purchases in such secur-

ities as it deems advisable without the necessity of

obtaining prior written approval of the Investment Com-

mittee. The Investment Committee would then be left

with the responsibility of reviewing periodically the

reports of the Bank as to its stewardship and to making

recommendations to the Board of Regents relative to the

general investment policy which the Bank should be in-

structed to follow. A copy of a proposed amendment to

the agency agreement is also submitted.



2. The endowment pool will be operated on a "shares value

method" basis (similar to an open end investment trust)

which will cause the capital gains, or losses, to be

reflected at least annually in the accounts pool. The

following modifications will be observed:



A. The pool will be valued by the Bank on May 24 each

year unless a more frequent valuation is requested

by the University. More than one valuation each

year will result in an extra fee by the Bank.



B. New endowments, or additions to the corpus of exist-

ing endowments, will be accepted into the investment

pool only at the date of a quarterly distribution

of income.



C. The new endowment will "purchase" the percentage

share of the pool at the rate determined by the

last annual evaluation.



D. Should the University receive new endowments which

in the aggregate total $25,000 or more ($25,000 is

.9% of the June 30, 1961 assets of $2,674,235) the

Business Manager shall:



(1) If the endowment is in the form of securities,

transmit the securities to the Bank with in-

structions to hold and manage the securities

separately until the next May 24; or



(2) If the endowment is in cash, invest in U. S.

Treasury Bills which will mature prior to the

next May 24, at which time the principal shall

be added to the pool.



President Armstrong recommended the proposal be referred to

the Investment Committee for further study.



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

unanimously that the report be accepted, and referred to the

Investment Committee for study and recommendation to the

Board at a later meeting.

6. Building Program



Mr. Rogers made a progress report as follows:



a) Addition to the Jot Travis Student Union Building - Due

to the necessity of revising mechanical plans, the de-

livery of final plans for review has been delayed. The

current schedule indicates these plans will be available

on June 11, 1962. The plans and specifications for the

revision in the mechanical room of the existing Jot

Travis building are being checked and will be ready for

bid early in June.



In order to avoid delay, President Armstrong recommended

that the Regents' Building Committee be authorized to ap-

prove final plans.



b) Women's Dormitory, Reno Campus - Progressing satisfac-

torily. The architect's analysis of the contractor's

quotation for the proposed mechanical revisions has

been resubmitted to the contractor with instructions

to reanalyze subcontract costs. Some delay is being

experienced due to carpenters' and electricians' strike.



c) Extension of Heat Line, Reno Campus - Progressing satis-

factorily.



d) Remodeling of Clark Library Building, Reno Campus - Pro-

gressing on schedule.



e) Engineering-Mines Building Reno Campus - Progressing

satisfactorily.



f) Rehabilitation and Extension of Utilities (Power and

Fire Alarm), Reno Campus - Progressing on schedule.



g) Getchell Library Building, Reno Campus - On May 1, 1962,

the architect certified that the work was completed as

per plans and specifications with the exception of 10

specific items. Two of these items have been completed

and work is progressing on those remaining uncompleted.



In order to avoid delay in accepting the above projects,

President Armstrong recommended that the Building Committee

be authorized to approval final plans in (a) and to accept

the projects (b) through (g) when completed.



h) Construction and Extension of Utilities, Las Vegas

Campus - On May 19, 1962 the design engineer certified

that the work was completed in accordance with the plans

and specifications. The University has been requested

to accept this project.



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

unanimously that the Building Committee be authorized to

accept the project (h) on behalf of the Board.



i) Library, Las Vegas Campus - Work is progressing satis-

factorily. Bids on requested lounge furniture have

been deferred pending the establishment of mutually

satisfactory quality controls. A trip to San Francisco

by members of University staff, Planning Board staff,

State Purchasing Director, and Budget Director has been

scheduled for this purpose.



j) The matter of selection of architects was discussed, and

the Regents reaffirmed their policy that the Regents'

Building Committee be authorized to make final selection

of architects in consultation with the State Planning

Board.



k) Heat Plant, Reno Campus - Mr. Rogers discussed final

plans designed to convert the Heat Plant to service the

Jot Travis building. Mr. Rogers requested approval,

explaining that this would eliminate one of the Heat

Plants that has been maintained. President Armstrong

recommended that the Regents approve these final plans

so that work might be accomplished this coming Summer.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried

unanimously that the final plans for the Heat Plant be

approved, as presented.



7. Wilson Property Matter



President Armstrong read a letter from Nat and Opal Wilson

of 1045 Evans Avenue calling "attention to the deplorable

condition of our property, since the abandonment of the Orr

Ditch". The letter further stated that their (the Wilson)

property includes the Orr Ditch which, they say, is located

east of the land owned by the University. The writers

stated that their Title from the Washoe Title Guaranty

Company gives them right of way of the Orr Ditch and any

easements pertaining thereto. Final paragraph in the letter

stated, "I hereby give Notice to the University of Nevada

Board of Regents of my intentions and legal right to con-

struct a fence bordering the West side of the Orr Ditch to

protect our property". The President asked permission to

tell her that the Regents will have the matter searched.

Mr. Rogers explained that Mr. and Mrs. Wilson feel that

their property line extends to the west side of the Orr

Ditch and that this is in conflict with the map of the

University showing the boundary on the east side of the

ditch.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the President be author-

ized to refer the matter to a Title Company for preliminary

search.



8. Catholic Church Property



President Armstrong discussed the matter and referred to

the following letter, terms and conditions of which had

been worked out by Dr. Young, Mr. Humphrey and Mr. Rogers,

with the advice of Mr. Porter. President Armstrong recom-

mended approval.



May 14, 1962



Reverend Thomas J. Connolly

St. Albert the Great Roman Catholic Church

10 Artemisia Way

Reno, Nevada



Dear Father Connolly:



This is to notify you of the acceptance by the University

of Nevada of your offer to sell the Roman Catholic Cemetery

property (5.156 acres) on North Virginia Street opposite the

University for the sum of $320,000. The purchase price is

to include removal of all graves and head stone or markers

as provided by State and Municipal laws. We are also in

agreement that we will request the State Planning Board to

purchase an option for $2,500 from the Church to purchase

for the sum of $220,000 the St. Albert School building, the

plot of land occupied by the school and the playground plot.



We understand that your offer to sell the cemetery is con-

ditional and that you will not sell unless the option is

purchased. Consequently, in order to complete this sale we

shall have to await the State Planning Board's action.



We assume that the terms of the sale will be as discussed,

namely;



(1) that the Church will provide an insured title and

will pay the U. S. document tax and that the Uni-

versity will pay any other closing costs such as

escrow fees; and



(2) the payment schedule will be $120,000 on June 15,

1962, $98,000 on or about December 15, 1962 (when

grave removal has been completed) and $102,000

ninety days later when the University takes pos-

session.



It is also to be understood that our acceptance of your of-

fer is conditional as follows:



1. The Federal Housing and Home Finance Agency must

approve the University's aplication for the con-

struction of Dormitories on this site and approve

the loan for this purpose. The agency has indicat-

ed approval verbally and the formal application is

now in process of being made. No complication is

expected in securing this approval.



2. Should legal action be taken against the Church to

prohibit grave removal, and should this action de-

lay transfer of title beyond the dates specified

above, the University would expect the Church to

assume the interest payments on the monies already

paid by the University for the land.



We very much appreciate your cooperation and interest during

our negotiations and we look forward to a speedy consumation

of the transaction.



Cordially Yours,

/s/ Charles J. Armstrong

President



President Armstrong discussed interim financing as proposed

by Mr. Humphrey if the Board wishes to proceed prior to

January, 1963. The proposal stated that it would be best

to have authority to borrow from First National Bank of

Nevada at a negotiated rate for the necessary interim fin-

ancing, and that it would be safe to assume that the inter-

est rate would be the current HHFA take-out rate.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the Board approve the

negotiations to date for the Church property and authorize

the President to request the State Planning Board to pur-

chase the option; also that the Board authorize the Presi-

dent to proceed to negotiate for interim financing as pro-

posed.

11. FM Radio Station



The Faculty Committee on Educational Radio and Television

presented a recommendation as follows, and Dr. Armstrong

presented it to the Regents with his recommendation for

approval:



PROJECT



To establish a 10 watt FM radio station in the Fine Arts

building on the University of Nevada Campus. Such sta-

tion to be used in the training of students in Speech,

Drama, Journalism, Education and Electrical Engineering

and other such areas as would require such training.

It would be further used for the University news, public

relations and other such functions as would be fit pro-

grams originating from the University. The University

courses, which could be adapted to radio, would also be

broadcast as well as programs from the National Tape

Library for public school use.



ADMINISTRATION



Administration of the station would be the responsibil-

ity of the Director of Audio-Visual Communications. The

present Committee on Educational Radio and Television

would act as an Advisory Board for the operation of such

stations.



PERSONNEL



Personnel for the stations, for the year 1962-63, would

consist of the Director of Audio-Visual and such members

of his staff as would be useful in such a project as

well as faculty in Journalism, Speech, Drama, Electrical

Engineering and other Departments willing to participate

on a voluntary basis. Students and student help would

also be required in the operation and maintenance of

such a project.



FINANCING



The Committee felt that because of the importance of

such a project that approximately $7,000 be utilized

from the Audio-Visual equipment budget to provide the

necessary equipment for the station. Estimated opera-

tion for the first year would be approximately $3,000;

of which some would be provided from the operating bud-

get of the Audio-Visual Center and the remainder to be

obtained from other sources.



SUMMARY



The opinions as expressed by members of the Committee

indicates they feel this is essential in the functions

of a State University. They further feel that it is

needed to provide essential training and background of

experience for many students attending this Institution.

It is also their desire that if such a project is to be

undertaken that it be done as rapidly as possible in

order to have the project completed and ready for oper-

ation by the Fall semester, 1962-63, and so that plans

may be made to assign staff for programming and in order

that such programming may be developed immediately.



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

mously by roll call vote that the establishment of an FM

radio station, as proposed above, be approved.

13. Committee on Salaries and Code



Chairman Broadbent reported on the meeting held on Friday,

June 1. Each member of the Board now had a copy of the

draft of the recommendations for the By-Laws of the Board

of Regents as submitted by Cresap, Mc Cormick and Paget.

Mr. Broadbent asked the Regents to study the proposals and

to make recommendations to the Committee. Another meeting

of the Committee is planned prior to the next regular meet-

ing of the Board, at which time the draft of the proposed

By-Laws will be gone over paragraph by paragraph in the hope

that the Committee can present to the Board recommendations

for the final draft of the By-Laws. Mr. Grant suggested

that the Committees, as proposed in the draft, be given

special thought, and Mr. Germain proposed that organization

of the Board be studied carefully.



MEETING OF THE REGENTS' SALARY AND CODE COMMITTEE



A meeting of the Regents' Salary and Code Committee was held

at 1:30 P.M. on June 1, 1962 in the Office of the President,

University of Nevada. Present were Mr. Broadbent, Chairman;

Mrs. Magee, Mr. Germain, Mr. Arnold, Mr. Grant (ex-officio)

and President Armstrong.



The purpose of the meeting was to review the final report of

Cresap, Mc Cormick and Paget incorporating suggested revi-

sions of the draft of their review of the Regents' By-Laws,

made to their representative, Mr. Conn, at his last meeting

with the Committee.



The final report referred to, entitled "A Study of the

Organization and Procedures of the Board of Regents Univer-

sity of Nevada", was submitted by Cresap, Mc Cormick and

Paget to Mr. Broadbent and the Committee under date of

March 28, 1962. Members of the Committee had had oppor-

tunity to review the revised report prior to this meeting.



There was considerable discussion of many of the detailed

recommendations and, in particular, there was general

agreement that a reduction in the number of Board meetings

as recommended by the report is not desirable; secondly,

that delegation of as much authority as indicated to com-

mittees of the Board of Regents is somewhat questionable;

and third, that it would be unwise to have persons other

than elected Regents serve on Regents' Committees.



A number of modifications in the suggested new By-Laws were

discussed including, for example, the recommendation that a

General Counsel should serve as an Officer of the Board, and

the recommendation that the Secretary should serve not only

as an Officer of the Board, but also be compensated for this

service. Rather, the Committee believed that the General

Counsel should not serve as an Officer of the Board, but as

a Consultant, and that the Secretary should be a member of

the Board of Regents, with the necessary clerical and secre-

tarial duties being performed by an Assistant Secretary who

would be regularly compensated. A number of other modifi-

cations in the suggested By-Laws were discussed.



Finally it was agreed that Chairman Broadbent will present

a progress report, without formal recommendation, to the

Board of Regents' meeting tomorrow, and will distribute

copies of the Cresap report to all members of the Board,

with the request that all members study the report and

send any comments and suggestions to the Chairman for re-

view later by this Committee.



Dr. Anderson entered the meeting at 3:30 P.M.



It was further agreed that the Committee should plan to meet

in advance of the Board of Regents' meeting scheduled for

August, to review suggestions received in the meantime and

to prepare detailed recommendations for action by the Board

of Regents.



The meeting adjourned at 3:45 P.M.



Respectfully submitted

Charles J. Armstrong

Acting Secretary



14. Policies and Procedures Regarding the Special Use of

University Facilities



Proposed procedure policies were distributed to members of

the Board giving details of the policy for use of University

facilities. Action was deferred until the next meeting in

order to give the Regents sufficient time to study the pro-

posals.



15. Student Loan Program



The Office of Student Affairs has been investigating ways

in which the University might increase its aids to students,

particularly as to loans. They have now made a proposal

that the University participate in the United Student Aid

Fund to provide low cost loans for students through the

banks. Mr. Humphrey explained the plan, that loans would

be handled entirely by the banks. The University would then

certify that an individual is a student at the University in

good standing. The bank would interview the student, grant

the loan and make collection. The ratio of participation by

the United Student Aid Fund is 25 to 1, so that a deposit of

$1000 from the Garvey Rhodes Loan Fund (Account #61-50061)

would provide a loan fund of $25,000. In the case of non-

collection of a loan, the University would lose only its de-

posit, proportioned on the basis of the 25 to 1 ratio, and

the bank would be reimbursed for its loss by the United Stu-

dent Aid Fund. President Armstrong recommended approval and

suggested that the Garvey Rhodes Loan Fund (which is unre-

stricted) be used as the University deposit.



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

unanimously by roll call vote, that the Administration be

authorized to proceed with the above student loan plan.



16. Transfer of Budgeted Funds



President Armstrong discussed the following recommendations,

which had been submitted by Mr. Humphrey for handling of

certain University accounts, and recommended approval:



(1) Deposit of income from investment of surplus operating

capital as follows:



A. Interest earned from moneys in Fund. No. 1 to be

credited to Fund 1 (this practice approved by Board

on September 9, 1961).



B. Interest earned from moneys in Fund 91, Plant Fund,

be credited to the specific sub-fund in Fund 91

which is invested. This is present practice.



C. Interest earned from moneys in Funds 11-61 inclu-

sive and 81 be deposited in a new account titled

"Board of Regents Special Projects" to be expended

at the direction of the Board. (This amends policy

approved by Board on September 9, 1961, which dedi-

cated this income to the President's Discretionary

Fund).



(2) Transfer of moneys deposited to 51-4008, President's

Discretionary Fund, under present policy, to new "Board

of Regents Special Projects" account 51-4054 in the

amount of $15,560.10.



(3) Transfer of balance of Curtiss-Wright Gift, Account

51-4035 to President's Discretionary Fund, Account

51-4008 in the amount of $3,729.33.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the above proposals

and fund transfers be approved.



President Armstrong discussed the proposal that the Business

Office be reviewed in the Fall of 1962 by a respected auth-

ority in the field of University Business Administration,

and recommended that he be authorized to enter into contract

for such a study and review. He pointed out that when Mr.

Humphrey was employed a year ago he asked for the opportu-

nity to make certain needed changes, which now have been

accomplished. It is now agreed by President Armstrong and

Mr. Humphrey that a study of the procedure and the account-

ing system is in order.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the President be author-

ized to enter into contract for review of the Business

Office, as recommended.



President Armstrong discussed the agreement for collateral

with the First National Bank of Nevada. Mr. Humphrey pro-

posed an amendment to the agreement providing for an in-

crease of $1,000,000 in pledged collateral, making a total

of $1,500,000 at First National bank and $2,051,200 at all

banks. President Armstrong recommended that the amendment

be approved, and explained that this more than adequately

provides the 110% found necessary after one year's study

of the average balance.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried

unanimously that the amendment to the collateral agreement

be approved.



17. Reserve for Contingencies



President Armstrong discussed the proposal of Mr. Humphrey,

submitted after conference with Dr. Armstrong, that as of

July 1, 1962 the account "President's Reserve" in Fund No. 1

be changed to "Reserve for Contingencies" to be available

only for transfer to other accounts. The Fund would start

with a credit of $191,772 as of July 1. President Armstrong

recommended that the "Reserve for Contingencies" Fund be es-

tablished and that the transfer procedure be as follows:



(1) Transfers of $2000 or less may be approved by the Pres-

ident and shall be reported to the Board of Regents at

their next meeting.



(2) Transfers of more than $2000 shall be subject to the

approval of the Board of Regents.



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried

unanimously that the "President's Reserve" Fund be changed

to the "Reserve for Contingencies" Fund and the transfer

procedure be approved effective July 1, 1962.



18. Nuclear Engineering Program



President Armstrong reported. The program in Nuclear Engi-

neering has reached the point where, if the University is

to advance, a critical reactor must be secured. Within

the past year, through contacts with Atomics International,

a subisdiary of North American Aviation Company, a small

10-watt reactor has become available which has all the

features the University needs at the present time. It

is the safest reactor on the market, and does not require

shielding. Total cost, after negotiation, is approximately

$58,000. There is now $50,000 in the Terris Moore "Margaret

Trust Fund" which could be used for purchase of the reactor.

Several people in the community have become interested and

have raised a considerable amount of money, so that the

reactor could be purchased entirely from gift funds. The

plan would be to house the reactor in a quonset until the

new Engineering-Mines building is complete. President

Armstrong reported that he had discussed the matter with

the Chairman of the Legislative Commission and received

his concurrence. He further proposed that the Administra-

tion be authorized to complete the transaction for purchase

of the reactor.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the Administration be

authorized to complete negotiations for purchase of the

reactor, using available funds in Terris Moore "Margaret

Trust Fund".



19. Smallpox Vaccination



Recently certain members of the Christian Science Church

protested the requirement that entering students be vac-

cinated for smallpox, on the basis that it is protection

to the individual and against their religious beliefs.

This requirement is part of the policy approved by the

Board of Regents that all entering students must undergo

a physical examination including smallpox vaccination. Dr.

Lombardi discussed the matter, saying that the protection

is not only for the individual but also in order that the

disease will not be communicated. It is a matter of public

health policy. Dr. Anderson agreed. Mr. Porter advised

that from a legal point of view, the requirement does not

conflict with religious beliefs.



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

unanimously that present policy of the Regents for required

physical examination of all new students, including smallpox

vaccination, be reaffirmed and that the Administration check

with other institutions for information as to their policies

in this regard.



20. University Budget, 1963-65



President Armstrong reported the following action schedule

for the next Biennial Budget:



June 1 - Budget due in the Business Manager's Office

July 9-14 - Budget hearings in the President's Office

August 1 - Detailed budgets to be forwarded to Regents

August 25 - Consideration of Budget by Regents



The next meeting of the Board was set for Friday and Satur-

day, August 24 and 25. It was agreed that the meeting on

August 24 will be held in Reno starting at 1:00 P.M.; and

that the meeting on August 25 will be held in Carson City

starting at 9:30 A.M.



Mr. Grant asked the Regents to study the Budget thoroughly

and to refer any questions to the Administration prior to

the meeting.



21. Request for Junior College, Elko



A letter was received, signed by Fred B. Harris and Mark

Chilton of Elko, Nevada, offering to the University "sixty

(60) acres of choice land near the City of Elko to be used

for a Junior College Campus site". The letter further stat-

ed, "You may select this land from Section 7, Township 34

North, Range 55 East, MDB&M. The location of this land with

respect to the City of Elko, is shaded green on the accompa-

nying map. You are invited to look at the acreage and make

a selection of the proposed Campus site anytime between now

and February 28, 1963. When the site is chosen, we will

deliver to you merchantable title to the selected sixty (60)

acre site, free and clear, for $1.00."



A letter had also been received from the Elko Chamber of

Commerce urging the Regents to give serious thought to giv-

ing Elko prior consideration should any plans for a Junior

College be contemplated.



The letters were discussed and also the future possible

development of the University in other areas of the State.



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

unanimously that the Administration be authorized to inspect

the property offered at Elko and also that members of the

Administration talk with Dr. Gallagher, President of the

Elko Chamber of Commerce, and report back to the Regents

at their next meeting; further that the Administration be

authorized to inspect any land offered for site purposes

throughout the State, and at the same time make a study as

to the number of students who would be interested in attend-

ing a Junior College.



It was agreed informally that the offer at Elko be given

publicity to encourage similar offers from other communi-

ties.



The meeting adjourned at 11:45 A.M.



The next meeting was set for Friday afternoon, August 25, 1962 in

Reno and Saturday, August 25, 1962 in Carson City.
