BOARD OF REGENTS

UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA

June 2, 1967



The Board of Regents met on the above date in the Travis Lounge

of the Student Union building, Reno Campus. Present were

Regents Anderson, Grant, Hug, Jacobsen, Ronzone, Magee, Seeliger,

and Smith; President Armstrong, Vice Presidents Humphrey and

Mordy, Chancellor Moyer, Mr. Ed Pine, Mr. Ed Olsen, Mr. Peter

Breen from the Attorney General's Office. Present from the

Press were Miss Pat Rogero and Mrs. Mimi La Plante.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Anderson at 9:30 A.M.



1. Approval of Minutes of Previous Meeting



Upon motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug and unani-

mous vote, the minutes of the meeting of May 13, 1967 were

approved as distributed.



2. Proposed Patent Policy



An amended policy statement, developed by the Committee at

the request of the Board, was distributed and discussed.

However, since NSU has not yet acted on the amended policy

statement, it was moved by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr.

Seeliger and carried without dissent, that action be delayed

until the July meeting at which time NSU will have prepared

its recommendation concerning the proposed policy.



3. Current Year Audit, Desert Research Institute



President Armstrong's comments and recommendations concern-

ing the Auditors' Interim Report of Desert Research Insti-

tute which had been presented to the Board at its May meet-

ting:



During the course of their audit of the financial records

and procedures of the University of Nevada for the current

fiscal year, the firm of independent auditors retained by

the University of Nevada, Kafoury, Armstrong, Bernard and

Bergstrom, raised some questions, with related observations

and recommendations, concerning certain aspects of the

current financial administration of the Desert Research

Institute's Fleischmann Grant. These preliminary questions

and recommendations were transmitted to the Board of Regents

during the course of a meeting of the Administrative and

Personnel Committee of the Board on May 12, 1967. These

matters were then referred to the University Administration

for study, report and recommendation at the present meeting

of the Board.



The auditors' observations have accordingly been reviewed by

Vice President Mordy and members of the DRI staff, by Vice

President Humphrey and by myself. The report which follows

consolidates our thinking and transmits to the Board my

recommendations for appropriate action.



(1) The auditors noted "Salary of a resident alien has been

included on the Fund One DRI payroll during the current

fiscal year; such salary appears to be contrary to the

Board's own policy statement governing DRI operations."



The enabling State legislation which established the

Desert Research Institute permits the Board of Regents

to adopt personnel policies permitting payment of cer-

tain alien personnel even from appropriated funds.

However, the Board has not as yet chosen to adopt such

a policy statement with respect to appropriated monies.



Under the circumstances, therefore, I recommend that

the salary in question be transferred to DRI non-appro-

priated funds and that this also be done in the case of

another resident alien in DRI who is a similar case.



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

without dissenting vote that the above recommendation be

approved. Mr. Hug requested that the Administration study

this item for discussion at a later meeting as to the ad-

visability of adopting a policy statement with respect to

appropriated monies.



(2) The auditors commented: "Continuation of the calendar

year contract commitment to an advertising agency in

the annual amount of $10,000 was affected without ob-

taining approval or advising the Fleischmann Founda-

tion of the contract renewal (charged to Atmospherium

Grant funds)."



The auditors' comment here involves a misunderstanding

on their part due to lack of complete information. The

original idea of engaging a public relations firm grew

out of discussions between trustees of the Fleischmann

Foundation with Vice President Mordy and myself. In my

proposal dated September 30, 1965, to the Fleischmann

Foundation for a general Desert Research Institute

Grant, I noted that the Atmospherium-Planetarium, on

the basis of previous experience, would not be entirely

self-supporting, and we therefore requested a contribu-

tion to the annual operating expenses over a five-year

period. I noted: "During a five-year interval with

professional assistance in public promotion it seems

highly probably that the income can be significantly

increased ..... To implement these plans we believe

that at least five years continuity for planning and

development is necessary."



The original request to the Foundation was for $50,000

per year for the Atmospherium for a five-year period.

Subsequently, in our revised proposal, dated December

22, 1965, following further discussions with the

Trustees of the Foundation and their review of a speci-

fic proposal made by the advertising agency, we revised

the request upward to $60,000 per year for a five-year

period and noted that the cost of the public relations

program on an annual basis was included in that budget.



When the Foundation trustees subsequently approved this

request, the retention of the advertising agency during

this period was implicit.



For this reason, it did not appear to any of us that

prior approval for the second annual renewal of the

contract with the advertising agency was necessary,

especially in view of the fact that the firm selected

for this purpose was approved by the Foundation trust-

ees.



I do believe, however, that it is entirely appropriate

for the Board of Regents to review any further exten-

sion of the annual contract, beyond the current one

which expires at the end of this calendar year. At

that point we shall have had two years' experience

with the results obtained, and the Regents can make a

decision whether or not they wish to recommend to the

Fleischmann Foundation the continuation of the ad-

vertising firm's contract beyond this point. Here

it would seem that the basis of consideration would

be the business wisdom and value of continuing such

advertising services. But if any change should be

contemplated, I would strongly recommend that this

matter be reviewed with the Fleischmann trustees in

view of their original grant for such services

covering a period of five years.



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

unanimously that the above recommendation be accepted.



(3) The auditors state: "Personnel service or consulting

contracts were not available for two professional per-

sons to whom disbursements were made from Fleischmann

Grant funds."



Arrangements with the first individual for consulting

services go back to a letter of agreement dated Septem-

ber 13, 1960, signed by me providing for annual re-

newal.



The second individual was paid for intermittent con-

sulting services on a "Request for Check" form (VP-F

81) due to an apparent misunderstanding as to the use

of this form.



In future, I recommend that these individuals should be

paid by Independent Contractor's Agreements on forms

provided by the University. The Board of Regents wish

to review the advisability of renewing these agreements

in the future and I recommend that this be done.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mrs. Magee, that Presi-

dent Armstrong's recommendation be approved with further

study to be given as to the advisability of renewing the

subject agreements.



Above motion amended by Mr. Hug by suggesting that no an-

nual commitments be made until after next meeting of the

Board of Regents to give the Administration time to study

and make recommendations as to contractual arrangements.

Motion to amend seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried unani-

mously. Original motion also carried unanimously.



(4) "Financial commitments apparently discussed in the

Board of Regents Executive Session held in the Spring

of 1966 (from which both Chancellors and the Vice

President of Finance were excluded) were not appro-

priately communicated to the University Officers

responsible for ultimate budgeting and financial

administration of such commitments."



The financial commitments referred to by the auditors

were:



(1) The affirmation of the principle that the Univer-

sity will move as rapidly as possible to transfer

onto appropriated funds operating expenses of the

Desert Research Institute including salaries of

distinguished scientists being supported under the

Fleischmann Grants of 1961 and 1966, on an ascend-

ing scale through 1971;



(2) Establishment as rapidly as feasible of a rotating

research contingency fund, designed to provide

emergency financial support for ongoing programs

while renewal of outside contracts and grants from

various Federal agencies are in process.



These matters and other non-fiscal policy consid-

erations for the Desert Research Institute were

discussed with Professor Mordy during a meeting of

the Regents' Research Committee in the Spring of

1966, and subsequently reviewed and approved by

the Board of Regents in closed Executive Session

at which no administrative officers of the Univer-

sity were present except the President. This was

done because the session primarily involved ap-

proval of an additional title and the assignment

of new responsibilities to Professor Mordy, lead-

ing to his appointment as Vice President.

Of course, this was subsequently announced

formally.



The intent of the Regents to implement the commit-

ment to absorb an increasing amount of the operat-

ing costs of the Desert Research Institute through

State funds was carried out in the 1967-69 Bien-

nial Budget Request to the State Legislature, in

which the ascending schedule was adhered to be

requesting additional State appropriation for

this purpose. The fact that this new money was

not appropriated by the 1967 Legislature has

made it temporarily, at least, impossible for us

to meet fully this present commitment, but in

the past we have been able to accomplish modest

steps in that direction. Other financial con-

siderations arose during the 1966-67 year and

subsequently have made it impracticable to date

to move toward the establishment of the rotating

contingency research reserve.



In spite of financial difficulties which have

prevented the Regents from carrying forward these

commitments as rapidly as intended, I recommend

that we continue to make every effort to obtain

necessary State support to carry out our commit-

ments to the Foundation on operating and salary

expenses of DRI, and that we seek every available

means to establish the contingency reserve as soon

as possible.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



(5) "No detailed operating financial management plan was

available reflecting anticipated revenue sources and

the projected expenditure thereof."



In the past, budgets for expenditures and revenues

from three sources of funds for DRI have been submitted

to the Vice President-Finance: (1) State appropriated

fund, (2) the Fleischmann Grant, both of these on a

yearly basis, and (3) other grants and contracts as

proposals are made and when such funds are committed to

the Institute by the sponsors.



In view of the fact that most of the financial support

for research programs comes from outside grants or

contracts in short-term funds, a large amount of uncer-

tainty is inevitable, and hence budgets for such funds

can only be estimated.



The auditors have recommended that the overall finan-

cial management plan for the forthcoming biennium for

DRI should list all firm or contingent sources of reve-

nues and all firm or anticipated expenditures, with ex-

penditures defined by program as well as their object

classification, and each item of revenue and expendi-

ture clearly indicated as firm or contingent. This

plan should be reviewed by the Vice President Finance

and submitted with his recommendations to the Board of

Regents for approval, providing that the program should

be reviewed on a continuing basis as contingencies be-

come firm or other projects are incorporated into the

Institute's program. Such a plan should be resubmitted

as revised, at least annually.



We are in full agreement with the auditors' recommenda-

tions in these respects and, therefore, I recommend to

the Board of Regents as follows:



The Desert Research Institute should develop detailed

program statements by related functional groups. These

summary statements should be supported by detailed

accounts for travel, operating and equipment. The pro-

gram statements should be divided by fiscal year and

information should be included concerning the total

grant or contracts involved and the term. This infor-

mation for 1967-68 should be submitted through usual

budget review channels in order to be ready for distri-

bution to the Board of Regents with the July meeting

agenda. After review and adoption of the 1967-68 plan,

the Desert Research Institute should develop a projec-

tion for 1968-69 in order that any problems which re-

quire Fund One participation can be understood and

solutions proposed.



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

Mrs. Magee abstaining, that President Armstrong's recom-

mendation be adopted with the provision that the Adminis-

tration (Vice Presidents Humphrey and Mordy in consultation

with President Armstrong) work out a format for applying

the policy regulations, with the procedure to be reviewed

by the Board of Regents as soon as feasible.

5. Transfer of Funds



President Armstrong presented the following transfers of

funds of more than $2,000 with his recommendation for

approval:



Numbers 393 ($125 from Honors Study Board Out-of-State

Travel account), 395 ($35 from Admissions and Registrars

Office Out-of-State Travel) and 396 ($50 from General

University Extension Out-of-State Travel) to Office of

Institutional Research Out-of-State Travel to provide

funds for Mr. K. D. Jessup to attend Association for

Institutional Research meeting.



#394 $125 from Institutional Research In-State Travel

account to Honors Study Board Operating account to

replace out-of-state funds in transfer #393.



#397 $83.17 from Retirement Fund Premium to Contingency

Reserve. Previously the Board approved the transfer

of $400 to provide funds for the University Marching

Band to participate in Armed Forces Day parade in

Tonopah. This created a deficit in the Contingency

Reserve of $83.17. This transfer will provide funds

needed to balance the account.



#400 $100 from the Chancellor's Office Graduate Assistance

account to the University Council to provide funds for

office equipment.



#412 $45.80 from Max C. Fleischmann College of Agriculture

Out-of-State Travel account to Chancellor, Reno Out-

of-State Travel account to provide funds for balance

of 1966-67.



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

mously that the above fund transfers be approved.



President Armstrong also presented the following transfers

of less than $2,000 for information:



#464 $1,249 from the Sabbatical Leaves to the Contingency

Reserve. This represents the amount of unused Sab-

batical Leave money for 1966-67.



#465 $125 from Contingency Reserve to Institutional Member-

ships to provide funds for approved memberships.



#466 $755.24 from Contingency Reserve to George Whittell

Forest and Wildlife Area Board to provide operating

funds for balance of 1966-67.



#467 $75.50 from Contingency Reserve to Radiological Safety

Board to provide funds for film badge service for bal-

ance of 1966-67.



6. Approval of Check Registers



President Armstrong presented, with recommendation for

approval, the check registers as submitted by Mr. Humphrey.



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

mously that the check registers be approved as submitted.



7. Out-of-State Fee Waivers



In response to a request by the Board when it set the new

percentage allocations for out-of-state fees in 1966 are

the following recommendations for 1967-68:



Type of Award Percentage Number for 1967-68



Music 23 40

Athletics 50 85

Other 27 45

Total 170



Chancellor Miller further recommended (in a letter dated

May 9, 1967) that a separate category of in-state fee

waivers be established permitting the allocation of up to

20 resident fee waivers to Nevada Resident Indians. These

20 waivers would not be included in the present group of

fee waivers which is based upon 3% of the total student

enrollment. He also further recommended that the Scholar-

ship Board make an annual review of recipients of these

awards requiring, for continuation of the award in the

subsequent year, that recipients have a minimum of 2.0

grade point average. Dr. Miller pointed out in his letter

that in all other cases a review is now made at the end

of each semester and the annual review would allow suf-

ficient time for the Indian student to adjust to College

and continue qualifying for the in-state fee waiver.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Smith, carried with

Regents Hug and Jacobsen opposing. Mr. Hug stated that his

reason for opposition was only because the statment request-

ing these waivers for Indian students does not indicate for

what purpose the the waivers released by this action will be

used.



8. Waiver of Fees for Graduate Assistants



President Armstrong presented, with his endorsement, the

following recommendation from Chancellor Miller, noting that

this proposal had been reviewed and also endorsed by Vice

President Humphrey.



That Graduate Assistants who are under contract for the

academic year be granted the privilege of waiver of regis-

tration fees for the Summer Session immediately prior to the

effective date of their contracts. In the event a contract

has not been signed, a statement from the Department Chair-

man that a contract was being offered would constitute

sufficient evidence to obtain a fee waiver card for the

Summer Session.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the above recommendation be approved and be

applicable to both Campuses.



9. Estimative Budgets for 1967-68



In addition to the estimative budgets for 1967-68 which were

distributed at the May meeting, Mr. Humphrey also submitted

revised budgets for Student Health Services, Reno, and Max

Fleischmann Foundation Grant for DRI Administration, and an

additional budget to cover Computer Sales, NSU, which had

not been received in time to be distributed with material

submitted at the earlier meeting. President Armstrong

recommended approval of the estimative budgets as submitted

by Mr. Humphrey.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the estimative budgets for 1967-68, as submit-

ted by Mr. Humphrey, be approved.



10. Budget Revision for NSU Technical Institute



Mr. Humphrey submitted with his recommendation for approval

a revision to the NSU Technical Institute budget for 1967-

68. This revision was made necessary by the fact that the

State Department of Education has committed $22,516 more to

this program than was approved in the work program.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Smith, carried

without dissent that the revised budget be approved as

submitted.



11. Personnel Appointments



President Armstrong recommended the following personnel

appointments for both Campuses be confirmed:

President Armstrong presented, with his recommendation for

approval, a proposal from Chancellor Moyer to initiate in

program in Law Enforcement at NSU under the supervision of

the Technical Institute.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

unanimously that the program be approved as proposed.



18. ROTC



President Armstrong presented for the Board's review a

number of documents discussing the recent proposal by the

University Council, as reported in Faculty Policy Bulletin

#67-12, "That effective September 1, 1967, Military Science

and Tactics no longer be a requirement for graduation", and

asked for discussion by representatives of the faculty who

were present.



Dean Basta, as Chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee to Study

ROTC, reviewed for the Board the recommendation of that

Committee as reported in a letter to the President on

December 30, 1966. The motion of that Committee and its

recommendations are as follows:



After careful deliberation of the 18 March 1965 recommenda-

tions of the University Policy Committee on Academic Stand-

ards as approved by the University Council and the Board of

Regents, analysis of the factors set forth in our iterim

report to the University Council on 7 November 1966 and

further detailed study of the ROTC program, your Committee

has concluded that no significant reasons exist at this time

to change the Basic Military Science Program from mandatory

to voluntary or implement any immediate change in course

content, academic credit or other related matters. The

Committee does feel, however, that in order to provide for

better understanding, effective coordination and continuous

study of the ROTC program and its relationship to other

University endeavors, a permanent Military Affairs Board

should be established.



Accordingly, it is recommended that:



1. The Military Science requirement as specified in 1966-67

University of Nevada General catalog be maintained.



2. The Department of Military Science and the College of

Arts and Science continue to review the curriculum,

credit hours, exemptions and other related matters in

accordance with established University procedures.



3. A Military Affairs Board responsible to the Chancellor

be established on the Reno Campus. This Board chaired

by the Military Coordinator and composed of representa-

tives of the Administration, each College and School,

the Department of Military Science, and the ASUN,

would meet at least semi-annually to review the ROTC

program and to consider suggestions and/or recommenda-

tions on military matters which are University-wide in

scope. It is further recommended that the Professor of

Military Science submit an annual report of operations

to this Board.



Dean Basta stated that the above recommendations of his

Committee still stand.



Dr. Hulse was present as a representative of the Executive

Committee of the University Council and presented the fol-

low ing statement:



TO THE BOARD OF REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA:



It is my privilege to appear here today by invitation of

President Armstrong and at the suggestion of the Executive

Committees of the University Council and the newly-elected

University Senate.



The recent "Class A" ballot on ROTC revealed that approx-

imately 70% of the faculty members prefer a voluntary

program of military training to replace the present

program of compulsory training for Freshmen and Sophomore

men. About a year ago, the faculty of the College of Arts

and Science voted by a substantial majority in favor of a

resolution that expressed the opinion that there is no

sufficient academic justification for compulsory ROTC.



The committee that worked on this problem assembled a great

deal of information from other institutions where similar

transitions have occurred in recent years, and the evidence

showed an overwhelming majority of cases in which change-

over has worked well. We have assurances to the effect that

the Department of Defense and the Department of the Army do

not regard compulsory ROTC programs as essential or even

preferable to voluntary programs in training officers for

the military services. Correspondence with the appropriate

military authorities has established that the Army is will-

ing to assist the University in making the transition. The

contract between the University and the Department of the

Army puts no obstacles in the way of a changeover.



Some members of the faculty and Administration on this

Campus have expressed concern about the technical problems

that might arise in making the transition. It was the opin-

ion of the committee on which I served that there are no

technical or administrative problems that would preclude the

adoption of a voluntary program before the beginning of the

Fall semester, and there was strong sentiment to the effect

that, once the decision is made, it should be implemented as

soon as feasible.



The faculty is familiar with the argument, often presented

by those who favor the present compulsory program, that it

is unfair to Freshman students to remove this requirement,

because those who fail to take ROTC will lose an opportunity

for orientation in the advantages of the advanced ROTC pro-

gram. A majority of the faculty is obviously not convinced

by this argument. The same plea could be made for required

Freshmen courses in other important areas on the same basis.

Why should we not have required Freshman courses in American

History and Civilization, or in Electrical Engineering, or

in Economics for the same reason? All of these fields are

important for the well-being of our nation. The desired

orientation can be provided in other ways.



Nor has the faculty been impressed by the argument that

training in military science and tactics provides indis-

pensable and unique instruction in leadership. Certainly

one of the important goals of all academic Departments is

to prepare students for roles of leadership in society,

and it would be foolish to assert that the military science

training program has any pre-eminence in this.



Let me emphasize that the intention of the proposal before

you is simply to remove the requirement of the ROTC training

as a condition for graduation. Any course that a student

completes in ROTC will continue to carry University credit

as previously. No policy change with reference to transfer

credits is proposed, and no change in the status of students

presently under contract with the Department of the Army to

complete advanced ROTC training would be effected.



It is obvious that there are significant differences of

opinion on this matter. I believe it is my duty to report

to you that there is a strong feeling, shared by quite a few

faculty members, that a deliberate effort has been made to

keep this matter from getting into the hands of the Presi-

dent and Board of Regents in this form. This issue has been

before University committees for at least three years. Some

of the most valuable members of this faculty are expressing

intense frustration because this proposal has encountered so

many obstacles. Part of this is due, of course, to the

cumbersome faculty machinery that we have; the committee

finally got an opportunity to vote, it expressed its opinion

decisively, and there is a strong hope that the Board will

ease the present tension by acting in the near future on

this matter.



James W. Hulse



Dr. Kirkpatrick spoke briefly on the history of the question

of voluntary versus mandatory ROTC as it has been considered

by the University Council. Dr. Beesley, as former Chairman

of the Council, also reviewed the history of the action by

the faculty.



Colonel Ralf spoke on the ROTC question as it concerns the

Military Department and its responsibility for providing

officers to the U. S. Armed Forces and his concern that the

young male student might be deprived of an opportunity to be

fully informed of his military obligations and his opportun-

ity through an ROTC program.



Colonel Thomas Miller also appeared as a supporter of com-

pulsory ROTC training.



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

unanimously that this matter be tabled until the July

meeting to provide additional time for study.



19. Proposed Two-Year Associate of Science Degree Program in

Fire Science at NSU



President Armstrong presented with his recommendation for

approval a proposal from Chancellor Moyer to initiate in

September 1967 a 2-year Associate of Science Degree Program

in Fire Science at NSU under supervision of the Technical

Institute.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried with-

out dissent that the program be approved as proposed.



20. Proposed Bachelor of Arts Program in Anthropology or

Sociology at NSU



President Armstrong presented with his recommendation for

approval a proposal from Chancellor Moyer to offer effective

September 1967 a Bachelor of Arts Program in Anthropology or

Sociology and the creation of an Anthropology-Sociology

Department to facilitate the degree at NSU.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with-

out dissent that the program be approved as proposed.



21. Removal of Concrete Bleachers in Former Stadium Area



Mr. Pine reported that the State Planning Board will bid the

removal of concrete bleachers in the former stadium area.

The estimated cost of $5,508 will come from the contingency

reserve on the Effie Mona Mack Social Science building pro-

ject. Mr. Pine recommended that the Administration be

authorized to concur in the award of the contract.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried by roll

call vote that the above recommendation be approved.



22. Furniture Bids - Effie Mona Mack Social Science Building



Mr. Pine reported that the bids for the above were opened on

May 24, 1967. The bids have been reviewed and the State

Purchasing Department has accepted low bid on a number of

items. Mr. Pine recommended that the University concur in

the award of bids, as recommended by the State Purchasing

Division and the State Planning Board, as indicated on the

attached list. Total cost of the bids to be awarded under

above is $89,688 which is within a proposed budget of

$125,000 for furniture.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Smith, carried

without dissent that the University concur in the award of

bids as recommended.



23. Bids for the Laboratory Equipment in the Psychology Area

mously that the above recommendations be approved and

24. Shades and Draperies, Social Science Building



Mr. Pine reported that on May 22, 1967 a recommendation was

made by the State Purchasing Division to award shades and

drapery bid on the Social Science building to Quimby's for

$5,292.00. Since that time it has been discovered by the

Purchasing Division that the material is not as specified.

It is now recommended that award be made for the specified

times for the second bidder. Other bids were as follows:



William Morrow, Sacramento $6,100.00

Herb's Awning Company, Reno $6,188.00

Ann's Custom Service, Reno $8,290.00



Motion by Mr. Smith, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the University concur in the award of

the bid only if it made to Herb's Awning Company, Reno. It

was noted that although this bid is higher, the difference

is small and not significant enough to justify awarding the

contract to an out-of-state firm.

construct "21,750 sq. ft. of retail stores, shops and

$858 of earned income now in the Fund be made available to

the Mackay School of Mines for the purchase of books and

by the Mackay School of Mines as suggested.
