Mr. Dick Baker of the State Planning Board came to the meeting at

9:30 A.M., the time set for consideration of the University's

Building Program.



8. Unnamed University Buildings



Regent Anderson, Chairman of the Regents' Building Commit-

tee, asked for suggestions. President Armstrong read a

memo from Dr. Young on behalf of the Campus Development

Committee raising the following questions:



1. When should the word "building" be used and when

should the word "hall" be used?



2. Should buildings be named after living persons?



3. Should buildings bear a title that indicates func-

tion (Fine Arts, etc.)?



4. Should Schools and Colleges be named? If so, should

the name of the School or College be the same as the

name of the building in which it is housed?



5. Should Campus streets be named?



Other matters of policy in naming buildings were brought up

and discussed. Agreement was reached by consensus that the

Regents' Building Committee meet and recommend a policy for

naming buildings.



9. Campus Development Committee



Dr. Young was asked to report. A meeting was held on June 2

with three members of the Regents' Building Committee pres-

ent. Mr. Rodgers of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill attended

the meeting also.



After considerable discussion, the Campus Development Com-

mittee took the following actions:



1. Indicated agreement with the following standards for

classroom utilization, as proposed by Skidmore, Owings &

Merrill, AS A GOAL for the University of Nevada:



a. General purpose classrooms (lecture, seminar) to be

scheduled 30 hours per week with 60 percent student

station utilization.



b. Special purpose classrooms (Laboratory) to be sched-

uled 20 hours per week with 80 percent student sta-

tion utilization.



2. Indicated agreement with the following standards for

space, as proposed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill:



No. of Students Sq. Ft./FTE St. Total Sq. Ft

--------------- --------------- ------------

15 20 300

30 16 494

45 15 665

60 14 836

125 11 1446

250 11 2890



Dr. Young explained that action was taken with the

understanding that the University of Nevada is a rela-

tively small institution but that as a State University

and a Land Grant Institution, it must offer a wide di-

versity of courses and programs, and therefore will re-

quire considerable growth in enrollment in order to im-

prove in facility utilization.



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

unanimously that the report be accepted and the actions of

the Campus Development Committee be ratified.



10. Building Program Progress Report



Mr. Rogers reported as follows:



All projects under construction are moving along, having

been held up somewhat on account of rain.



The Radiology Laboratory in Las Vegas will be ready for

inspection on Tuesday of the next week. When this has been

accomplished, the Federal agency will start moving in.



The Science Techology building in Las Vegas will be occu-

pied before the opening of school in September.



The design for the primary power distribution system in Las

Vegas is in the preliminary stage.



Some preliminary work is being done on the location of a

playing field in Las Vegas.



The Reno Campus Library building will not be completed by

August 1, as previously planned, but will be ready before

school opens the middle of September.



Excavation has been accomplished for the Engineering build-

ing in Reno, and concrete is being poured.



The Heat Plant in Reno will be completed on schedule. De-

sign of the Distribution lines is underway and is close to

preliminary plans.



The Dairy Farm building is coming along well after a slow

start. Excavation is complete and they have started pour-

ing concrete.



The University Engineer has met with Peter Johnson of the

State Planning Board staff and they have gone through the

old Library building in Reno and will try to negotiate a

contract.



11. Building Program, Approval of Plans



President Armstrong called on Mr. Rogers.



a) Women's Dormitory, Reno



Architect Ray Hellman of Hellman and Vhay discussed the

proposed plans. Request will be made to demolish the

Heat Plant at the north end of the Dining Hall building.

The project will then be ready for bid. President

Armstrong recommended that the Administration be author-

ized to proceed.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, car-

ried unanimously that, upon approval of final plans,

the Administration be authorized to proceed with the

Dormitory project which will occupy part of the site

of the old Dining Hall.



b) Life Science Wing, Reno



Architect Parsons discussed financial problems in con-

nection with the Life Science Wing. Originally repre-

sentatives of the National Institutes of Health indi-

cated that $158,000 would be forthcoming as a Federal

grant. Plans were drawn accordingly. It was later

learned that only $56,000 would be received from the

government agency. Mr. Parsons amended the building

plans to keep within the amount available by eliminat-

ing air conditioning equipment, and the elevator, and

by reduction of Laboratory equipment. President

Armstrong recommended approval of the plans as amended.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Germain, car-

ried unanimously that the final plans for the Life

Science Wing be approved, subject to usual checking.



Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Germain, car-

ried unanimously that the final plans for the Women's

Dormitory be approved, subject to completion of check-

ing.



d) Library, Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers discussed the proposed final plans for the

Las Vegas Library building, in the absence of architect

Mc Daniel, who was unable to attend the meeting. The

building has been planned to permit future expansion to

three stories. President Armstrong recommended approval

of the plans, subject to usual checking.



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

unanimously that the final plans for the Library build-

ing at Nevada Southern be approved, subject to checking.



12. Aerial Survey, Las Vegas Campus



Mr. Rogers showed aerial survey drawings which were essen-

tially complete, needing only minor changes and corrections.

They were approved by consensus.



13. Master Planning



Dr. Young discussed proposed models of the Campus. The

State Planning Board has about $2,000 for models of the two

Campuses and plans to make new models - one for each Campus

- at the scale of 1-100. The present model of the Reno

Campus is on the scale of 1-40. The plan is to place per-

manent buildings on the model and to provide blocks for new

buildings to scale. As new buildings are approved, new

blocks would be located. The models, which would belong to

the University would be paid for from money appropriated for

the aerial surveys. General discussion followed as to

whether to leave the matter of decision as to the new models

to the Regents' Building Committee or to leave it in the

hands of the State Planning board. Consensus was that a-

greement be reached between the Regents' Building Committee

and the State Planning Board. Regent Germain was asked to

work with Nevada Southern on the project.



14. U. S. Public Health Buildings



Mr. Germain reported that he had been contracted by the

architectural firm Moffitt and Hendricks that they had been

commissioned to draft plans for three more buildings in the

U. S. Public Health complex and that there was a possibil-

ity that request would be made to locate them on the Nevada

Southern Campus. It was agreed that Skidmore, Owings &

Merrill be given the information. Mr. Rogers also was in

possession of this information by letter from Moffitt and

Hendricks.



15. Getchell Library Building



Mr. Rogers showed drawings and discussed the treatment pro-

posed for the southwest corner entrance. He proposed a

walkway as a short cut to this portion of the building,

rather than the ramp which was approved by the Regents at

their last meeting, but which was not acceptable to the

architectural firm. President Armstrong recommended that

the Board approve this solution to the problem.



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

unanimously that the previous action of the Board be re-

scinded and that the walkway be approved.



Dr. Armstrong suggested that a date be set for laying the

cornerstone for the Getchell Library building at a time

when the Board would be in Reno for a meeting, sometime in

September. It was agreed that the President contact the

Masonic Lodge to determine if the cornerstone could be laid

on Sunday, September 10. If so, the meeting of the Board

of Regents would be set for Saturday, September 9, 1961.



16. Budget Reorganization



Dr. Armstrong asked Mr. Humphrey to discuss his proposal.

Prior to the meeting Mr. Humphrey had mailed each Regent a

copy of "Proposed Reorganization of the Accounting System,

University of Nevada, Effective July 1, 1961". Dr.

Armstrong had gone over the proposal with Mr. Humphrey

prior to the meeting.



Mr. Humphrey explained that the proposal is based on the

concept of fund accounting. He noted that Funds 1, 2 and 3

are true funds, but that Funds 11 through 91 are fund groups

with as many as 27 funds in one group. In discussing Fund 1

he called attention to the policy previously adopted by the

Board of Regents, that all monies appropriated by the State

for general operation of the University shall be kept in the

State Treasury and that other Fund 1 revenues would be

transferred to the State Treasury for expenditure.



He pointed out that the provision, "It is recognized that

State Executive and legislative Budget Officials and the

Legislature should be provided with adequate information

concerning non-budgeted funds to better understand the

budget funds" is a significant departure from the previous

method of operation.



He discussed the provision, "Transfers of Money from one

fund to another shall be subject to the approval of the

Board of Regents and recorded in the minutes of the Board

of Regents". He also discussed the proposed procedure

which will replace the presentation of monthly list of

claims to the Regents for approval - "A check register

shall be prepared daily prior to validation of the check

by application of the approved signature. The check

register shall be pre-audited by either the Business Mana-

ger or the Chief Accountant and checks shall not be issued

until one of these Officers has signed the check register."

"Check registers shall be submitted to the Board of Regents

for final approval. Registers which will be considered at

a meeting of the Board of Regents shall be available for

inspection at least one day prior to the meeting. Approval

of the check register shall replace the present method of

approving Board of Regents' checks by number."



University Bank Accounts effective July 1, 1961 will be as

follows and bank signature cards were prepared for signature

accordingly:



UNIVERSITY BANK ACCOUNTS EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 1961



Board of Regents (1) Fund #1 for deposit First National

President Armstrong explained Fund 13 and 13 Alternate. He

stated that although he recommended Fund 13 as the ultimate

goal, he recommended the alternate method for immediate a-

doption. The consensus of the Board was favorable to Fund

13 Alternate.



The distribution of 100 percent of research overhead pay-

ments in both Fund 13 Alternate and Fund 14 was discussed

at length. President Armstrong recommended the distribution

of the entire overhead payment to the overhead accounts

rather than distributing 25 percent of the payment to Fund

1, as has been done in the past. He also recommended that

all appropriate charges against the overhead accounts for

indirect costs of research projects, where determinable,

be made on an individual basis. It was agreed that the

President's recommendation would be followed.



The Regents discussed the need for increase in amount of

bond for employees of the Business Office under the present

financial structure, in view of the fact that greater re-

sponsibility will rest on the Business Manager and the

Chief Accountant.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that Mr. Humphrey and Mr.

Hattori be bonded for $100,000 each, that other employees

specified by Mr. Humphrey be bonded for $10,000 each, and

that all be covered by one bond.



The State law concerning collateral for bank deposits was

discussed. Mr. Humphrey stated that the State Statutes

applied to State monies on deposit with the State Treasurer

and to local governments. The University has, however, at-

tempted to follow the same requirements, i. e., collateral

equal to 110 percent of the average balance. Mr. Humphrey

proposed that a new collateral agreement be entered into

with First National Bank of Nevada, which calls for the

deposit of $175,000 of securities as collateral and the

storage of such securities in a safety deposit box, and

provides that the Business Manager or the Chief Accountant

shall represent the University at any opening of the box.

Mr. Humphrey recommended that the agreement be approved to

replace the present agreement effective July 1, 1961, sub-

ject to review by the President and the Attorney General.

Mr. Humphrey further noted that the First National Bank had

agreed to review the University accounts in October 1961 to

determine the average daily balance. After that review the

amount of collateral pledged and management of the account

should be further discussed with the Board. Dr. Armstrong

recommended approval of plan as outlined by Mr. Humphrey.



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

unanimously that the collateral agreement with First

National Bank of Nevada, including entry to the safety

deposit box, be approved.



President Armstrong recommended approval of the "Proposed

Reorganization of the Accounting System" as presented by

Mr. Humphrey and as modified in discussion.



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

unanimously that the "Proposed Reorganization of the

Accounting System, Effective July 1, 1961" be approved,

with certain minor modifications as agreed upon.



17. Desert Research Institute Purchasing



President Armstrong asked Mr. Humphrey to discuss purchas-

ing policy for the Desert Research Institute. It was Mr.

Porter's opinion that the Desert Research Institute is not

required by law to operate through the State Purchasing

Department. Mr. Humphrey recommended that there be no

change in the purchasing policy approved by the Board of

Regents on May 6, 1961, except as it refers to the Desert

Research Institute. In view of Mr. Porter's advice, Mr.

Humphrey recommended that the Regents instruct the Admin-

istration to purchase for the Desert Research Institute

through the Buyer in the Office of the Business Manager.

President Armstrong also so recommended.



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

unanimously that the recommendation be approved, and that

purchases for the Desert Research Institute be made

through the Buyer in the Office of the Business Manager.



18. David Russell Fund



Mr. Humphrey discussed the matter and President Armstrong

recommended that the Board authorize the closing of the two

accounts, David Russell Savings Account and David Russell

Commercial Account in the combined total amount of $863.36,

and that the money be transferred into the David Russell

Endowment Fund.



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

unanimously that the two David Russell accounts be closed,

that the money be transferred as recommended, and the

necessary signatures by the Chairman of the Board be auth-

orized.



19. Honors Programs



Dr. Armstrong discussed the Honors Programs, representing

the result of work by a University committee over the period

of a year and which has been approved by the University

Faculty by mail vote of 186 to 33. Students who qualify

and who participate will take extra assignments and, if

successful, will be graduated "With Honors" in whatever

field is involved. It is believed that this program will

attract more of the high school graduates with high ability

than before. President Armstrong recommended approval.



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

unanimously that the Honors Program, as proposed, be

approved.



20. Leaves of Absence Policy



Questions have been raised concerning the statement in the

Policy on Leaves of Absence and Related Matters, "In cases

of illness or accident among faculty members, leave, if

necessary, shall be granted for thirty working days at full

salary." Dr. Armstrong asked that the wording be modified

to read, "In cases of illness or accident among faculty

members, leave, if necessary, shall be granted up to a

total of thirty working days in any one fiscal year."



The Office of the Attorney General ruled that the action of

the Board of Regents in approving the new Policy on Leaves

of Absence and Related Matters as of May 1, 1961 cannot

become effective until July 1, 1961, the date on which the

legislative act (Chapter 265, 1961 Statutes of Nevada) takes

effect. Dr. Armstrong recommended that the Regents take

action to claify the matter.



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

unanimously that the two amendments to the Policy on Leaves

of Absences and Related Matters be approved.

carry out a project in 1961-62 to have Manzanita Lake

permanently cleaned. The request included authorization

for the Business Office to act as depository for donations.

If contributions should be more than necessary or if the

project should cost less than anticipated, the remaining

funds will be put in a special fund to be used for filling

grass in around the newer buildings and in keeping up the

general appearance of the Campus. President Armstrong

recommended approval.



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

unanimously that the request of Blue Key be granted and

that the Business Office be authorized to receive contri-

butions.



25. Nevada Society of Professional Engineers Loan Fund



A letter had been received which stated:



"At the present time there is $400 in the University of

Nevada Account #455 as a Scholarship Loan Fund from the

Nevada Society of Professional Engineers .. No allocation

or use has been made of this fund by the University and

consequently no benefit to the students is indicated .. In

view of the above fact, the Board of Directors of the Nevada

Society of Professional Engineers at a meeting held on May

13, 1961 voted to request the Board of Regents of the Uni-

versity of Nevada to return said $400 to the Nevada Society.

The Nevada Society intends to administer this $400, our

additional $850, and any future funds we may raise through

the vehicle of our Society."



President Armstrong recommended approval of the request,

stating that students are not particularly interested in

scholarship loan funds at the present time.



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

unanimously that the $400 be returned to the Nevada Society

of Professional Engineers, as requested.



26. Woman's Auxiliary to the Clark County Medical Society



Letter had been received from the Woman's Auxiliary to the

Clark County Medical Society which stated: "This year the

Auxiliary voted to stop awarding scholarships altogether.

We shall have no future scholarship program; although there

is still $375 in our scholarship fund at the University of

Nevada, Southern Branch .. In the future, in place of our

scholarship program, the Auxiliary has voted to give money

directly to the University Nevada, Southern Branch. This

money is to be used by and for the Science Department at

the discretion of Dean Carlson .. Under these circumstances

would it be possible to transfer the money now in our

scholarship fund to the Science Department for its use?"



President Armstrong recommended that the request be granted.



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

unanimously that the transfer be made in accord with the

request of the Woman's Auxiliary to the Clark County Medical

Society.



27. State Planning Board
