Mr. Capurro will sell all of said 76 acres of real
property to you for the total sales price of $190,000
payable as follows, to-wit:

on, or before, 5 years from the purchase by you
of the initial parcel herein referred to.

3rd: In consideration for the purchase by you of the
initial parcel of real property herein referred
to, and in the event you should exercise your
option to purchase the remaining portion of the
southerly 36 acre parcel of real property herein

have the further option to purchase the remain-
ing 40 acres of the Capurro property for the
total sales price of $100,000, payable in one
lump sum cash payment, on, or before, 5 years
from the exercise by you of the option to pur-
chase the 2nd parcel of real property herein
referred to.

4th: The successive options herein referred to are
conditioned upon your initial purchase of the
easterly 1/2 of the southern 36 acres in ac-

12. Budget for the 1955-56 Biennium

The budget was presented by the President, who explained
that in cutting the budget to fit the amount appropriated
the needs of the Colleges were carefully considered, before
any money was set aside for salary increases. Each Dean
was then allotted 3% of his total present salary budget for
salary increases within his College.

At the request of Mr. Thompson, consideration of the budget
was held until personnel recommendations were presented.

13. Dr. Lombardi read a prepared statement, as follows, with the
request that it be made a part of the minutes of this meet-
ing and released to the Press.

Since I am starting my second 4 year term as Regent of
the University of Nevada and we are in the throes of
trying to fit a budget that was forced upon us by the
State Legislature at their last session, I would like
the people of Nevada to know that the budget that we
as a Board of Regents presented to the Governor and
the State Legislature was one that was most carefully
compiled to meet our basis needs. Nearly everyone at
the University participated in the making of this budg-
et. It was trimmed time and again and in its final
form, represented our absolute operational needs. It
was not padded, contained no frills and I wish to re-
iterate again that it was made by men who know what
they need to carry on the operations of our State Uni-
versity. Yet, when this budget was presented to the
Governor he saw fit to recommend to the Legislature
that that operational budget be cut nearly a half a
million dollars. Then the Legislature further cut the
budget nearly another half a million dollars so that
we were shorted nearly one million dollars on our
operational budget alone. This is a little hard to
understand and very difficult for me to feel that we
must take the responsibility of having to forego and
curtail many of our activities, some of the needed
positions and to forego some of the necessary raises
in salaries that our faculty rightfully deserves.

I am chagrined that we are restrained to keep pace with
the growth of our State and to further improve and fol-
low the trends of higher learning. For in the final
analysis, those that suffer are the young men and women
of our State who seek to avail themselves of the higher
education provided for them by the people of this State.
I want to feel that we are giving them the best train-
ing that will fit them in their later life and will
make them more valued citizens of our Station and Na-
tion, but if we are to be constantly hamstrung and
particularly so this year, by the utter disregard of
our needs as asked for in our budget which was presented
to the State Legislature, then we must curtail many of
our services; namely, curriculum, necessary equipment
and neglect necessary repairs and upkeep of our build-
ings and grounds.

It is this same situation year after year, that makes
it difficult for us to do the job we would like to do.
Hence, we are a constant target for unwarranted criti-
cism. We are constantly fighting to keep our College
fuly accredited and such cuts in our budget I am afraid,
will penalize us and bring discredit to our State Uni-
versity. I do not wish to assume full responsibility
if and when this should occur. I feel that the Gover-
nor and the Legislature should bear their share.

I feel it my duty to remind the people of the State
again, that our budget requirements for operations alone
was cut nearly one million dollars. If they are content
with the status quo that we must maintain because of
limited moneys given to us, then we must abide and do
the best we can.

For years, some of our Laboratories have had to use
equipment that has been in the Laboratories since 1910.
It has been a constant struggle to maintain our various
Colleges at a standard where they would be accredited
and our graduates recognized in industry and other Uni-
versities. We are constantly in need of new and better
equipment to keep pace with the trends of modern indus-
try.

We have been striving towards improvement of the various
Colleges and toward that end, we have made definite
steps in our College of Mines, Agriculture, Education
and Home Economics. We seek to further improve and en-
large the scope of our teaching by improving our Schools
of Business, Arts and Sciences. For years we were try-
ing to rejuvenate and improve our School of Agriculture
and Home Economics. Our request for a building for
adequate quarters for the School of Agriculture has been
repeatedly denied and now, only through the generosity
of the Fleischmann Foundation can we look forward to a
bigger and better School of Agriculture and Home Eco-
nomics.

I believe it poor policy to constantly forego needed
repairs and maintenance of our buildings and grounds
as we must do each biennium to balance our budget
given to us by the Legislature. There comes a time
that an entire building will need complete moderniza-
tion or replacement by this shortsightedness and more
expense for our taxpayers to bear.

I am very discouraged that at each biennium our budget
is prepared with painstaking care and is constantly
cut. Because of this lack of funds, we are so limited
in building our University to meet the more modern
trends of higher education.

The Board recessed at 3:35 P.M. as a Board of Regents and
convened as a Board of Control for the Agricultural Experi-
ment Station to consider the following personnel recommenda-
tions:

1) Appointment of Walter H. Hesse as Assistant Professor
of Agronomy and Assistant Agronomist in the Agricul-
tural Experiment Station, effective June 7, 1955 at
a salary rate of $5400 per year.

2) Retirement of Howard G. Mason, Economist in the Agri-
cultural Experiment Station, effective July 1, 1955.

Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the recom-
mendations be approved.

The Board adjourned as a Board of Control for the Agricul-
tural Experiment Station and reconvened as a Board of Re-
gents.

The President presented his recommendations on promotions,
tenure and salary increases.

Mr. Thompson recommended that, in order to adjust the salary
schedules of the faculty, or approach an adjustment, the
Regents first increase every member of the staff who was a
member of the staff in the Spring of 1953 so that he would
have the benefit of the 15% increase given at that time.
Motion was made by Mr. Thompson that, out of the $30,843
proposed for salary increases, approximately $9,000 be set
aside to make the adjustments in the manner recommended
above; whatever is left would then be allocated to increases
for the faculty, including those who would at this time be
brought up to the 15% increase. There was no second.

Motion by Mr. Hardy carried with the following vote that the
recommendations on promotions, tenure and salary increases
be approved, as follows: Vote: Mr. Thompson, not voting;
Dr. Lombardi, aye; Mr. Hardy, aye; Mr. Ross, aye.
