             policy of admitting all graduates of Nevada high
             schools regardless of quality of work.

        (b)  That a maximum be set for enrollment, such as the
             1800 that has been suggested, making provision for
             a desirable expansion in the College of Agriculture.

        The Board was unanimous in favoring the admission of all
        Nevada high school graduates.

    3 - Faculty Housing

        During the informal report, the President said that a
        communication had been received from the local chapter
        of the American Association of University Professors
        calling attention to the fact that it was increasingly
        difficult to employ satisfactory faculty personnel due
        to the housing difficulties since many of the promising
        young teachers put in as a condition that we guarantee
        housing, which we cannot do.  They ask that we take some
        action in the matter and suggested the desirability of
        some sort of University sponsored housing agency and of
        the investigation of possible emergency housing units as
        well as more permanent housing plans.  Especially men-
        tioned by the Secretary of the American Association of
        University Professors was the possibility, because of a
        recent decision of Attorney General Bible concerning the
        investment of State funds, that some funds now on deposit
        might be available to University employees.

                      XX.  STUDENT CONDUCT

    In the government of the University, the President and facul-
    ty rely chiefly upon individual and collective self-control
    and the sense of honor and of duty of students.  Students are
    expected to register promptly, to pursue their studies with
    diligence, to attend classes regularly, and to show both
    within and without the University such respect for order,
    morality, personal honor and the rights, both of person and
    of property, of others as is reasonably to be expected of
    good citizens.  Those students who do not meet these require-
    ments may, upon recommendation of the Student Affairs Com-
    mittee, be suspended or expelled from the University by the
    Administrative Council.

    1.  Student Affairs Committee.  The Student Affairs Commit-
        tee, having representation from both student and faculty,
        has general supervision over all student affairs.  The
        chief functions are (a) to serve in an advisory capacity
        in all matters relating to student conduct and activi-
        ties; (b) to approve or reject any proposed student or-
        ganizations; (c) to investigate any infractions of con-
        duct or social codes, and to recommend corrective or
        disciplinary action to the proper student or administra-
        tive agency.

    2.  Degrees of Penalties.  Infractions of the regulations
        and codes of the Campus may result in penalties ranging
        from reprimands by student organizations or University
        Administrators up to loss of credits, probation, sus-
        pension or expulsion from the University.

    3.  Social Conduct.  It is expected that all students and
        organizations will familiarize themselves with the
        criteria contained in the Social Code of the University
        as adopted by the social organizations of the Campus,
        and as printed elsewhere in this booklet.  In addition,
        the following general regulations of the University will
        apply to all appropriate instances.

        (a)  Use of Alcoholic Beverages.  The Administration of
             the University of Nevada, in harmony with the laws
             of the State of Nevada and of the City of Reno,
             considers it contrary to the best interests of the
             University, of student life in general, and of the
             welfare of student organizations and individuals,
             for the following practices to be indulged:  (1)
             The serving of alcoholic beverages at mixed social
             functions both on and off Campus, including dances,
             picnics and other social gatherings.  (2)  The ex-
             cessive indulgence in alcoholic beverages at any
             time, or the appearance at any function of the
             University or of any student organization, either
             on or off Campus, while under the influence of
             excessive alcohol.  (3)  The bringing of alcoholic
             beverages onto the Campus of the University, into
             the University buildings, or onto the premises or
             into the houses of fraternities or sororities.  (4)
             The serving of alcoholic beverages at any general
             student celebrations, including post-election cele-
             brations.  (5)  The existence on the Campus or among
             student organizations which are dedicated primarily
             to so-called good fellowship and to the indulgence
             in alcoholic beverages at their meetings or func-
             tions.

        (b)  Enforcement.  In the formulation of the above poli-
             cies, it is not intended that any right, privileges
             or responsibilities of the various units of student
             government now extended by the Administration to
             student government shall be revoked or denied.
             Rather it is intended that within the framework of
             policy as announced, the social organizations shall
             cooperate with the Deans of Men and Women in working
             out methods for the effective enforcement of the
             policies within the various groups and throughout
             the student body.  The Administration specifically
             reserves the right, however, in the event of failure
             of other methods of control, to invoke the following
             penalties: (1)  Any student found guilty of flagrant
             violation of any of these regulations is subject to
             penalty, including suspension or expulsion from the
             University, at the discretion of the Administrative
             Council.  (2)  Any organization found guilty of
             gross violation of any of these regulations may,
             at the discretion of the Administrative Council, be
             barred from the University, or denied the privilege
             of pledging new members.

                      XXI.  STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP

    1.  Scholarship Probation

        a.  A student must be passing in at least 2/3 of his
            work or he may be placed on probation by the Admin-
            istrative Council, unless he can show that his
            unsatisfactory record is due to reasons for which
            he is not personally responsible.

        b.  A student may be placed on probation any time that
            his conduct warrants such action.

        c.  A student who does not remove his entrance deficien-
            cies before his second year of residence shall be
            placed on probation.

        d.  Whenever a student fails for two consecutive semes-
            ters to earn a minimum semester average of 2.0 grade
            points, he may be placed on probation.

        e.  While on probation, a student is subject to suspen-
            sion if he does not reduce his grade point deficien-
            cy.

    2.  Penalities for Probation

        a.  A student on probation shall not be allowed to regis-
            ter for more than 80% of the regular number of hours
            of his prescribed course.

        b.  While on probation a student may not take part in
            intercollegiate debates or dramatics or serve on the
            staff of any student publication or become a candi-
            date for any student office.  It is the duty of the
            Student Affairs Committee to enforce this rule.

        c.  Students placed on probation remain on probation un-
            til released therefrom by action of the Administra-
            tive Council. To be removed from probation, a stu-
            dent must raise his scholastic average to 2.0 grade
            points on his entire University record.

    3.  Suspension or Expulsion

        a.  A student not passing in at least 1/2 of his work
            may be suspended from the University, unless his un-
            satisfactory record is due to reasons for which he
            is not personally responsible.

        b.  A student who is on probation at the end of each of
            two consecutive semesters may be suspended from the
            University.

        c.  If the class preparation, attendance or progress of
            a student towrd a degree is deemed unsatisfactory,
            the student may be suspended from the University
            at any time.

        d.  Students who have been suspended from unsatisfactory
            scholarship can reenter only by application to the
            Administrative Council.  If they are permitted to
            reenter, such students shall be on probation until
            released therefrom by the Administrative Council.

        e.  A student who has twice been suspended shall not be
            permitted to register in this University.

        f.  At the beginning of each semester the Administrative
            Council will be in session two days before registra-
            tion begins for the purpose of hearing applications
            of students for readmission.

    4.  Class Conduct

        a.  A student may be dropped from class at any time for
            negligence or misconduct, upon recommendation by the
            Instructor and with the approval of the Dean and of
            the Committee concerned.

        b.  A student may be placed on probation, suspended or
            expelled at any time his class conduct warrants
            such action.

        c.  A student may be denied the right to register again
            in a course taught by an Instructor, when in the
            opinion of the Instructor the student's past conduct
            warrants such denial.  Such denial shall have the
            approval of the Dean of the College concerned.

    5.  Standards of Honesty.  Students at the University are
        expected to maintain high standards of honesty and in-
        tegrity.  Any student, therefore, who is in any way dis-
        honest in taking examinations or fulfilling other aca-
        demic assignment, or who submits as his own work the
        work of another person, materials copied without proper
        credit from a book or periodical, or materials corrected
        or revised by someone else is subject to being dropped
        from his course with a grade of F and having his name
        submitted to the Administrative Council for disciplinary
        action.  A flagrant violation of these standards or a
        second offense of any kind is almost certain to result
        in suspension or expulsion from the University.

5)  Motion by Mr. Cahlan passed unanimously that paragraph 6 of
    Sec. XI, be amended to read as follows:

    (Rules and Regulations for the Information and Guidance of
    the University Faculty)

        Emeritus Ranking

        Each member of the staff of the University who goes on
        the retired list shall be given, during the remainder of
        his life, an emeritus ranking the same as his ranking
        during his final year of service.  An emeritus Professor
        shall be a member of the University faculty with voice
        but not vote at faculty meetings.

6)  It was the unanimous agreement that a financial statement
    for the biennium 1949-50 be prepared as last year and the
    President and the Comptroller were instructed to submit to
    the Regents at the September meeting a separate statement
    for each year, showing in detail the operation costs of each
    Department, Division and College of the University for the
    academic years 1946-47 and 1947-48.

New Business

Motion by Mr. Sheerin passed unanimously that, because of the in-
crease in administrative duties due to the expansion of the Uni-
versity, it is evident that an Administrative Assistant to the
President should be secured, and there be it

    RESOLVED, that, should the financial structure of the Uni-
    versity make it possible to employ such an Assistant at a
    salary not to exceed $4500 for 9 months, this Board favors
    the employment of such a person, effective September 1, 1948.

At 12:20 the Board recessed for lunch at the University Dining
Hall and was called to order by the Chairman at 1:30.

By unanimous agreement, the matter was laid over for considera-
tion at a later meeting.

University Physician - By unanimous agreement, the President was
authorized to look for a full time University Physician.

V. E. Scott - Motion by Mr. Hilliard passed unanimously that,
effective July 1, 1948, Mr. Verner E. Scott be employed as
Director of Resident Teaching in Agriculture, on a 12-month
basis, for the academic year, 1948-49, at a salary not to exceed
$6000 for the year.

Ed Parsons, Architect, appeared before the Regents at 3:15 P.M.
and presented plans for the Agricultural building, and suggested
that, because of the railroad spur in the lower Campus, the
buildings may have to be slightly changed in position, or the
track moved so as to miss the corner of the proposed building.

Mr. Rogers, reporter, came into the meeting and remained until
adjournment.

Board of Athletic Control

At 3:45 P.M. the Board of Athletic Control met with the Regents.
Harry Frost, Chairman, presented Coach Sheeketski, who reported
on eligibility rules for athletes, stating that, so far as the
University is concerned, the eligibility rules of the Far Western
Conference will be followed.  Coach Sheeketski said that he hopes
to have a Freshman football team next Fall, 4 games being already
scheduled.

Graduate Manager Joe Mc Donnell and Basketball Coach Jake Lawlor
called attention to the number of activities which take place
in the new Gymnasium and the resulting difficulties with basket-
ball practice for the Varsity.

Regarding improvements to University property and the payment
thereof, it was agreed that financial arrangements would be made
between the Comptroller and the Graduate Manager before such
improvements are started.

It was agreed by the Board of Athletic Control that a copy of
the minutes of their meetings would be placed on file in the
President's office for the information of the Board of Regents.

Eugene Mastroianni was introduced as the new Graduate Manager and
Secretary to the Board of Athletic Control.

either side on the Moapa Valley water system matter but that he
should give his professional opinion, when requested.

Mackay Stadium

President Moseley read a letter from Kerak Temple of the Shrine,
requesting the use of Mackay Stadium for the presentation of the
"Polack Circus", all proceeds to go to the Shriners' Hospital
for Crippled Children.

Motion by Mr. Sheerin carried that the request of the Shrine be
granted, provided that the University be properly protected
against liability for personal injury and that a respectable
charge be made for wear and tear, cleaning the Stadium, etc.

    Vote:  Henningson - yes
           Hilliard   - yes
           Cahlan     - no

Parking and Traffic Regulations - At a meeting of the Blue Key
Fraternity on May 18, 1948, a resolution was passed, as follows:

    WHEREAS, the Blue Key Fraternity prior to the last war and
    since the last war has undertaken to establish and carry
    out traffic and parking regulations on the Campus, and

    WHEREAS, before the war there were relatively few automobiles
    on the Campus, but since the war the number has reached more
    than 1000, and

    WHEREAS, the attempt to patrol the Campus, issue citations
    to violators, and enforce the payment of fines thus incurred
    has required an enormous amount of time on the part of the
    members of the organization and has at the same time fallen
    short of completely adequate control, and

    WHEREAS, the successful administration of the parking and
    traffic regulations of the Campus in the future would require
    the sacrifice of too great an amount of time and energy need-
    ed by the members for successful scholarship;

    BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED, that Blue Key Fraternity does
    hereby petition the Board of Regents and the President of
    the University for approval of its relinquishment of all
    parking controls on the Campus, except for aid in registra-
    tion of automobiles and in designating and marking off the
    parking areas.

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Blue Key Fraternity does hereby
    petition and urge that the Administration give consideration
    to the taking of whatever steps are necessary to provide for
    a full-time Traffic Patrolman either to be employed by the
    University and to work in conjunction with the University
    authorities, or, if feasible to be provided by the Reno
    City authorities for the effective enforcement of parking
    and traffic regulations on the Campus beginning in the Fall
    semester of 1948.

Comptroller's Report:

1)  Heating Plant - The Comptroller reviewed, for the information
    of the Board, the situation and status of the proposed Heat-
    ing Plant.

    Motion by Mr. Cahlan passed unanimously that the Board of
    Regents request a joint meeting with the State Planning Board
    for a more complete and satisfactory understanding of the
    Heating Plant situation, and, further, that the Executive
    Committee of the Board of Regents sit in with the State Plan-
    ning Board on any plans to be submitted to the State Legisla-
    ture.

2)  P. B. X. Switchboard - Information concerning installation,
    cost, space, etc. was distributed to the Regents.  No action
    was taken since the Telephone Company cannot make installa-
    tion for at least a year.

3)  Financial Report

    1.  Statement of general funds showed an estimated balance
        as of June 30, 1948 in the amount of $797.10.

    2.  Statement of payrolls for May 1947 and May 1948 showing
        that the monthly payroll has increased from $47,293.82
        in May 1947 to $61,778.56 in May 1948.

    3.  Statement of estimated income and expenditures for the
        period ending December 31, 1948, showing an over-ex-
        penditure of $37,338.62 as of December 31, 1948, assum-
        ing that Fall registration and veterans enrollment will
        be the same as for the Fall of 1947.

Old Business

Outside Employment - Motion by Mr. Sheerin passed unanimously
that the recommendation of the Executive Committee at its meet-
ing on May 26, 1948 concerning outside employment be approved.

that Dr. Gorman be thanked for his preparation of the table
showing names of the Regents and their terms of service from
1869 to date, and that his report be made a part of the minutes
of this meeting, to be copied into the permanent minute book
of the Board of Regents.

The meeting adjourned at 5:20 P.M.  The next meeting of the
Board was set for September 18, 1948 unless a special meeting
is called by the Chairman.

                         HISTORY OF
           THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA

The recent death of former Regent Frank Williams brought to light
the fact that there was no complete record of those who had serv-
ed on the Board of Regents.

For the information of the present Regents and to complete this
phase of the history of the University, records have been compil-
ed from the Nevada Statutes, the Journals of the Assembly and
Senate, and from general election returns.  Acknowledgment is
hereby made to Hon. John Koontz, Secretary of State, from whose
recent publication, "Political History of Nevada 1948", the
returns of general elections were compiled.

In order to make this report intelligible and to clarify certain
conditions that would otherwide be hard to explain, I have in-
cluded various Constitutional and Legislative provisions con-
cerning the establishment of the University, and particularly
concerning the election of Regents.

                    CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS

Sec. 4, Art. XI of the Constitution provides:

    Sec. 4.  The Legislature shall provide for the establishment
    of a State University, which shall embrace Department for
    Agriculture, Mechanic Arts and Mining, to be controlled by a
    Board of Regents, whose duties shall be prescribed by law.

Section 7 of Art. XI of the Constitution provides:

    Sec. 7.  The Governor, Secretary of State and Superintendent
    of Public Instruction shall, for the first 4 years and until
    their successors are elected and qualified, constitute a
    Board of Regents, to control and manage the affairs of the
    University and the funds of the same, under such regulations
    as may be provided by law.  But the Legislature shall at its
    regular session next preceding the expiration of the term of
    office of said Board of Regents, provide for the election of
    a new Board of Regents, and define their duties.

Evidently nothing was done by the Legislature to carry out the
provisions of Sec. 7 Art. XI of the Constitution for the election
of Regents until the legislative session of 1869.

                     LEGISLATIVE PROVISIONS

Chapter LXXX Statutes of Nevada 1869, provides:

    Section 1.  The Board of Regents shall consist of 3 qualified
    electors of this State.  They shall be elected by the Legis-
    lature in joint convention on the 3rd Tuesday of the session,
    and shall hold their office for a term of 4 years, and until
    their successors are elected and qualified; provided, all
    vacancies occurring between sessions shall be filled by ap-
    pointment of the Governor, and the person so appointed shall
    hold his office until the next session of the Legislature,
    when the vacancy shall be filled by election.  The person so
    appointed or elected to fill a vacancy shall only fill the
    unexpired term of the person whose office was made vacant.

Under this Act, the Journal of the Assembly 1869, page 288, shows
that the following citizens were elected as Regents for a term
of 4 years:

                                                    Last Year
Name                         Residence               of Term

C. N. Noteware               Carson City               1873
H. F. Rice                                             1873
C. C. Batterman                                        1873

The Legislature of 1873 should have elected successors to these
Regents but evidently no action was taken.

The Legislature of 1875 (Journal of the Assembly, page 128)
elected the following as Regents for a term of 4 years:

                                                    Last Year
Name                         Residence               of Term

C. C. Stevenson              Gold Hill                 1879
W. C. Dovey                  Carson City               1879
A. Helm                      Carson City               1879

The Legislature of 1879 (Journal of the Assembly, page 47)
elected the following as Regents for a term of 4 years:

                                                    Last Year
Name                         Residence               of Term

J. S. Mayhugh                Elko                      1883
T. N. Stone                  Elko                      1883
W. W. Bishop*                Eureka                    1883

*W. W. Bishop resigned and C. H. Sproule of Battle Mountain was
appointed by the Governor to fill the vacancy until the 1881
session of the Legislature.

Chapter LIII Statutes Nevada 1881, provides:

    Section 1.  The Board of Regents shall consist of 3 qualified
    electors of this State.  They shall be elected by the Legis-
    lature in joint convention on the 3rd Tuesday of the session
    and shall hold their office for a term of 4 years, and until
    their successors are elected and qualified.  One of the Re-
    gents shall be so elected during the session of the Legisla-
    ture held in the year 1881, and at the regular session of the
    Legislature every 4th year thereafter, and two of the Regents
    shall be elected during the session of the Legislature to be
    held in the year 1883, and at the regular session of the Leg-
    islature every 4th year thereafter; provided, all vacancies
    occurring between sessions shall be filled by appointment
    of the Governor and the person so appointed shall hold his
    office until the next session of the Legislature, when the
    vacancy shall be filled by election.  The person so appointed
    or elected to fill a vacancy shall only fill the unexpired
    term of the person whose office was made vacant.

Owing to the vacancy on the Board of Regents, because of the
resignation of W. W. Bishop, the Legislature of 1881 (Journal of
the Assembly, pages 261-2) shows that S. H. Day of Carson City
was elected as Regent for the term of 4 years; his term ending
in 1885.

The Legislature of 1883 (Journal of the Assembly, page 59)
elected the following as Regents for a term of 4 years:

                                                    Last Year
Name                         Residence               of Term

J. H. Rand                   Elko                      1887
E. B. Harris                 Virginia City             1887

S. H. Day of Carson City being the hold over Regent until 1885.

The Legislature of 1885 (Journal of the Assembly, page 57)
elected L. W. Getchell of Austin for a term of 4 years, to re-
place S. H. Day whose term had expired.

Chapter XXXVII Statutes Nevada 1887 provides:

    Sec. 2.  The Governor, Secretary of State and Superintendent
    of Public Instruction shall constitute the Board of Regents
    of the State University until the 1st day of January, A. D.
    1889, and until their successors are elected and qualified.
    There shall be elected at the next general election, in
    the same manner as other State officers are elected, 3
    qualified electors, who shall constitute the Board of Regents
    of the State University.  The term of office of 2 of the Re-
    gents so elected shall be 4 years from the 1st day of Janu-
    ary, A. D. 1889, and until their successors are elected and
    qualified.  The term of office of one of the Regents so
    elected shall be 2 years from and after the 1st day of Jan-
    uary, A. D. 1889, and until his successor is elected and
    qualified.  And thereafter at each general election preced-
    ing the expiration of the term of office of any member of
    the Board of Regents a successor shall be elected in the
    same manner as other State officers are elected.

Under this Act, Governor C. C. Stevenson, Secretary of State
John M. Dormer and Superintendent of Public Instruction W. C.
Dovey served as Regents until January 1, 1889.

Now, the question arises what became of Regent L. W. Getchell,
who had been elected by the Legislature of 1885 to serve as
Regent until 1889.  This would indicate that the election of
Regents by the Legislature was not constituional.  The following
decisions of the Supreme Court would indicate that this was the
case, and the Act of 1887 quote above was evidently passed by
the Legislature to conform to the Supreme Court rulings.

The following excerpts from Nevada Reports indicate that Regents
must be elected by popular vote only, and that their election by
the Legislature was not constitutional:

    In State vs. Arrington, 18 Nevada 412 it was held that "If
    the Constitution prescribes one method of filling an office,
    the Legislature cannot adopt another."

    In State vs. Irwin, 5 Nevada 92 it was held that "the word
    'elected' in its ordinary signification, carries with it
    the idea of a vote, * * * * * *, and cannot be held the
    synonym of any other mode of filling a position."  The
    word "election" in section 26 and "election by the people"
    in section 32 of Article 4 of the Constitution, contem-
    plate the same mode of election and imply a popular vote.

In the general elections since, the following citizens have been
elected to serve as Regents for the period indicated, and in
each case (HO) indicates hold overs:

    Section 2.  From and after the 1st day of January, A. D.,
