UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA

BOARD OF REGENTS

June 5, 1960



The Board of Regents met in room 205, Morrill Hall, University

of Nevada, on Sunday, June 5, 1960. Present: Regents Anderson,

Arnold, Crumley, Elwell, Germain, Grant, Lombardi; Comptroller

Hayden, Engineer Rogers, Vice President Wood and President

Armstrong. Regent Tyson was out of the State; Mr. Broadbent

was ill and sent his regrets.



Reporters Laxalt and Armstrong covered the meeting for the Press.



The meeting was called to order at 1:15 P.M. by the Chairman.



1. Minutes of Previous Meeting



Upon motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Elwell, the

minutes of the meeting of May 7, 1960 were approved.



2. Fish and Game Commission



President Armstrong reported on developments since the last

meeting of the Board of Regents. The Campus Development

Committee and the Regents' Building Committee studied the

request of the Fish and Game Commission for a site for a

permanent building to be used as headquarters for the

Commission. Two University sites were proposed -- one on

the Experimental Farm on Valley Road and the other on

Evans Avenue behind the Bureau of Mines building. The

Building Committee felt that the Regents needed more infor-

mation regarding the benefits to the University and to the

Fish and Game Commission of their locating at the Univer-

sity of Nevada, and Mr. Frank Groves of the Fish and Game

Commission was invited to meet with the Regents.



Dean Adams and Dr. La Rivers were present also upon invi-

tation of the President. Mr. Groves reviewed the building

situation of the Fish and Game Commission for the informa-

tion of the Board. At one time the Office was in the

Biology Laboratory of the University, has moved twice since

that time, and for the past eight years has been at its

present location on a rental basis. The last Legislature

approved a bill for construction of a building from Fish

and Game Commission funds on the basis that a site would

be provided at no cost. The site offered by Washoe County

was unacceptable to the State Planning Board. At the pres-

ent time, three sites are under consideration -- one offer-

ed by the City of Reno near the Reno Airport, and the two

at the University. Mr. Groves indicated that any one of

them would be acceptable to the Fish and Game Commission.



Dean Adams spoke for the College of Agriculture saying

that they would be willing and able to give any reasonable

amount of land on the Valley Road Farm for a Fish and Game

building. In terms of possible cooperation between the two

agencies, he thought that location on the Campus would be

a good thing. Dr. La Rivers spoke of research possibilities

and assistance to students, and expressed his approval of

having the Commission on the Campus. Mr. Rogers expressed

the views of the Campus Development Committee, which recom-

mended the site on Valley Road rather than the one on Evans

Avenue. In the discussion of the Committee as to whether

the organization should be located on the Campus at all,

more were in favor than were opposed to it.



Mr. Crumley discussed the matter and suggested that if the

State Planning Board has no serious objection to the airport

site, it appears that the Regents would not be in order to

give up University property to the Fish and Game Commission

nor to any State agency or for any other purpose if another

site is available which is acceptable.



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

unanimously that, in view of the fact that the three sites

indicated above are equally acceptable to the Fish and

Game Commission, the President be directed to write a

letter to the State Planning Board outlining the situation

and saying that the Regents understand from Mr. Groves that

he believes the State Planning Board is not in favor of the

airport site; and that before action is taken by the Board

of Regents, they would like to have from the State Planning

Board an expression of its position as to whether or not it

would be in favor of the airport site for the Fish and Game

Commission Headquarters building.



3. Comptroller's Claims



President Armstrong presented the following claims as sub-

mitted by Comptroller Hayden and recommended approval:



Regents Checks, number 90-316 to 90-366 inclusive for a

total of $606,574.02 for May.



State Claims, number 90-1148 to 90-1169 and 90-144 to

90-152 inclusive for a total of $122,803.35 for May.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the claims be approved.



4. Candidates for Degrees



Dr. Armstrong presented the list of candidates for degrees

as of June 3, 1960 as submitted by Dr. Wood, and recommended

approval. These candidates had been approved by the Facul-

ties of the several Colleges and their records had been

checked by the Registrar and the Comptroller.



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

unanimously that the candidates be approved and that they

be granted the indicated degrees, as follows:

6. Regents' Building Committee



Dr. Anderson read and discussed the minutes of the Regents'

Building Committee as follows:



Minutes of the Meeting of the Building Committee of the

Board of Regents

May 16, 1960



Members of the Building Committee of the Board of Regents

met with members of the State Planning Board at 8:00 P.M. on

the above date in Mr. C. V. Isbell's Office. Present were

the following members of the Regents' Building Committee:

Dr. Anderson, Chairman, Mr. Arnold, Mr. Crumley, Dr.

Lombardi. Engineer Rogers and President Armstrong were

also present.



Members of the State Planning Board, in addition to pro-

fessional staff, were Mr. Bruce Thompson, Vice Chairman,

Mr. Empey, Mr. Fitz, Mr. Sandorf.



The first item for discussion was the matter of the aerial

surveys of all University properties and the topographical

maps and models of the two Campuses authorized by a State

appropriation in the 1960 session of the State Legislature.

It was agreed that Mr. Bissell and Mr. Rogers would obtain

full information on the cost of such surveys for a decision

by the joint groups next week.



Dr. Anderson presented the recommendation of the Board of

Regents, approved at the last Board meeting as a result of

a recommendation made by the Building Committee, to the

effect that the State Planning Board and Board of Regents

should jointly choose a qualified individual who could

serve as a Planning and Campus Development Coordinator on

the staff of the University, in connection with the Master

Planning appropriations authorized by the 1960 Legislature.

Such an individual would work closely with the architectural

firm conducting the Master Planning, and his salary during

the coming year would be paid from the State appropriation.

It is then understood that the Board of Regents would re-

quest continuation of this position on the University staff

thereafter in the University budget.



Considerable discussion ensued and it was finally agreed

that Mr. Bissell would invite Mr. John Rogers of the archi-

tectural firm of Skidmore, Ownings and Merrill to meet with

the Building Committee next week to explore these possi-

bilities.



The Planning Board recommended as architects for the Women's

Dormitory, the following firms, in order of preference:



1. Vhay and Hellman

2. Lockhard, Casazza, Parsons & Associates

3. Raymond Hellman

4. Lockhard & Casazza



The Regents' Building Committee withdrew to consider these

recommendations and on motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr.

Crumley, voted unanimously to approve the Number 1 recom-

mendation, the firm of Vhay and Hellman.



This was then reported by Dr. Anderson to the State Planning

Board and agreement reached that Mr. Bissell would proceed

to negotiate a contract with Vhay and Hellman for the

Women's Dormitory.



The Regents' Building Committee then resumed its separate

session and on motion of Mr. Arnold, seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, voted to accept all final plans for the utility

extension on the Reno Campus, as submitted by Mr. Rogers.

The Building Committee had specifically been authorized to

act for the Board in this capacity.



Mr. Rogers then presented preliminary plans for the

Radiological Laboratory in Las Vegas as presented by the

architects. Some suggestions and corrections were noted

by Mr. Rogers. After discussion, on motion by Dr. Lombardi,

seconded by Mr. Crumley, preliminary plans were approved.



There was further discussion of the request of the Fish and

Game Commission for a grant of approximately two acres on

the University Campus to provide a site for the office

building of the Fish and Game Commission. A site on the

Experiment Station Farm had been recommended by the Campus

Development Committee. After considerable discussion, Dr.

Anderson requested President Armstrong to invite Mr. Groves

of the Gish and Game Commission, Dean Adams of Agriculture,

and Dr. La Rivers of Biology to attend the next meeting of

the Board of Regents on June 5 to answer questions and ex-

plain in further detail the advantages which might accrue

to the University in providing a site for this purpose.



Meeting adjourned at 11:00 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



Charles J. Armstrong



Minutes of the Meeting of the Building Committee of the

Board of Regents

May 23, 1960



The Building Committee of the Board of Regents met with

members of the State Planning Board at 7:00 P.M. on the

above date in Mr. C. V. Isbell's Office. The following

members of the Regents' Building Committee were present:

Dr. Anderson, Chairman, Mr. Arnold, Dr. Lombardi, Mr.

Tyson. Engineer Rogers and President Armstrong were also

present.



The following members of the State Planning Board were pres-

ent: Mr. Isbell, Chairman, Mr. Empey, Mr. Sandorf, Mr.

Thompson, Mr. Fitz, members of the professional staff and

Mr. John Rogers of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill.



Mr. Bissell presented cost estimates for the aerial surveys

of the University property, approximately $4,000. After

some discussion, it was voted that all properties of the

University should be photographed at two-foot contours with

the exception of the Little Valley property which will be

done on five-foot contours. Mr. Rogers estimated the cost

of models of the two Campuses at approximately $5,000.



After some discussion, the Planning Board voted that a

contract be negotiated with the firm of Sprout for aerial

surveys.



Mr. Rodgers of the firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill then

outlined the scope of the proposed Master Planning to be

undertaken by his firm, including an educational Master

Plan, estimates of enrollments, space needs, and similar

matters. There was lengthy discussion of the Regents' pro-

posal to add an architect planner to the University staff

and a number of possibilities were explored to find the

necessary funds for his employment. No final decision was

reached.



Mr. Bissell reported on delays in the four building projects

on the Reno campus now under construction by Lembke. In the

case of the Dining Hall, the architect, Mr. Green, has rec-

ommended that the Planning Board take over the completion of

the building because it is impossible to make a satisfactory

arrangement with Lembke. The Fine Arts building is so far

behind schedule that a problem of double storage charges for

furniture which had been ordered will soon arise.



There was considerable discussion of possible courses of

action and the Planning Board finally voted to establish

completion dates for all these buildings in consultation

with the architects and then to advise the Bonding Company

of the dates set; and on Lembke's failure to complete on

schedule, the Planning Board would then request the Bonding

Company to take over to assure completion of the buildings.



The meeting adjourned at 10:30 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



Charles J. Armstrong



7. Building Program - Progress Report



Mr. Rogers reported. Neither the water nor the sewage line

has been extended to the Fine Arts building, nor has the

sewage line been extended to the Dining Hall. However, he

did not believe that this has delayed the contractors be-

cause the utilities can be hooked up at any time and the

transfer made at that time. The Fine Arts building was to

have been completed by April 18 including a 47-day time

extension on account of the plumbers' strike, and is not

yet complete. The Dining Hall completion date was April 15

and is not yet complete, and the same is true of the Men's

Dormitory. The Classroom and Physical Education building in

Las Vegas is approximately a month behind schedule, but the

architect is working with the contractor to try to get the

building finished by the projected date of completion.



8. ASUN Fee



President Armstrong presented a letter from Dan Sobrio, ASUN

President, which stated -- "By vote of the student body, the

ASUN fee has been raised to $17.50 per semester as approved

by the Fee Study Committee. In this raise, there has been

no additional amount relegated to Athletics." President

Armstrong recommended that the Regents approve the change

in ASUN fee from $14.00 to $17.50.



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

mously that the ASUN fee increase be approved, and that the

Comptroller be authorized to collect $17.50 per semester,

effective with the Fall semester, 1960.



9. Agriculture Department Changes



President Armstrong presented the request of Dean Adams,

submitted with the endorsement of Vice President Wood, to

change departmental titles in the College of Agriculture,

effective July 1, 1960, as follows:



Agronomy and Range Management to Plant Science



Soils and Plant Nutrition to Soils Science



In explanation, Dean Adams' memo stated -- "The present name

for Agronomy and Range Management is not appropriate, inas-

much as we have added a staff member in Horticulture. We

are planning to add an Entomologist and it is thought that

the name of the Department of Plant Science will be more

appropriate, even though an Entomologist does not fit into

that title. In the case of the Department of Soils and

Plant Nutrition, we contemplate adding an Irrigation

Engineer and we feel that the term Department of Soils

Science is sufficiently broad to include water management

work."



President Armstrong recommended approval.



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

mously that the department changes above be authorized,

effective July 1, 1960.

11. Ladino Dairy



Proposal by V. R. Bohman, Chairman of the Animal Husbandry

Department, endorsed by Dean Adams, was presented by Dr.

Armstrong as follows:



It is proposed that by November 1 we relinquish use of

all pasture and hay land on the Ladino Dairy. However,

it is requested that we obtain permission to use the

buildings for 1 year, or until May 1, 1961. This pro-

posal would make it possible for the purchasers of the

Dairy to start any work on the place 3 months sooner

than they had normally anticipated. This could be of

possible material advantage to them.



It will be necessay for the University to begin feed

purchases no later than the middle of June. If we

could obtain use of the buildings and Dairy set-up for

1 year, this feed could be stored at the present Dairy

without moving it once again at the time that the fa-

cilities at the Main Station Farm are completed. This

would be of material advantage to us. If such an agree-

ment could be arranged, it would certainly be appre-

ciated.



President Armstrong recommended approval.



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

unanimously that the proposal be approved and that the Pres-

ident be authorized to negotiate with the purchasers and to

work out with them an agreeable arrangement along the lines

of the proposal.



12. Resident Hall Matters



(a) President Armstrong read a letter from the Executive

Representatives of Lincoln Hall requesting the Regents

"take the necessary and proper action to see that these

returning out-of-state students (listed) be placed in

dormitories after returning Nevada students, but be-

fore Nevada Freshmen". The present rule is that when-

ever the requests for the University of Nevada Resi-

dence Hall privileges exceed the number than can be

accommodated, preference shall be given (1) to Nevada

students; (2) to formerly enrolled students from out-

side Nevada; (3) to new students from outside Nevada.

The matter was discussed and it was the consensus that

the rule now in effect be enforced on the basis that

the University of Nevada is a tax-supported agency and

Nevada students must be served first.



(b) President Armstrong presented with his recommendation

for approval contract forms for University Residence

Hall contracts for 1960-61 which include the following

change from previous contracts:



Prior statement: "The Board of Regents' policy

provides that all residents of University Residence

Halls should contract for room and board. Members

and pledges of fraternal organizations who are re-

quired to take meals in the Chapter House may apply

in the Office of Student Affairs for permission to

contract for room only. Students whose employment

is compensated partially by provision for meals,

may also apply for this exception."



Proposed statement: "Up to September 18, 1960

special permission to cancel this contract may be

requested by those students who join a fraternal

organization. This request is made at the Office

of Student Affairs."



Dr. Armstrong explained that the request is being made

because, with heavy amortization schedule on the new

Dining Hall and Residence Hall, the University will

need guaranteed income. The date of September 18 was

chosen because this is after formal fraternity and

sorority rushing and students who are interested in

joining a fraternal organization will have been

pledged by that time.



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

unanimously that the contract change be approved.



13. Amercian Legion Request



Chairman Grant received a letter from the American Legion

requesting that, due to the increase in cost not only for

transportation but for food and other miscellaneous ex-

penses, the Board give consideration toward the elimination

of the charge for domiciliary care for participants in Boys'

State. The Regents and the President discussed the request

and it was the consensus that since this is an item which

cannot be budgeted, and there are no other funds which can

be used for the purpose, the Regents do not have the right

to give free domiciliary care to any group, no matter how

worthy. It was agreed that the President be authorized to

write to the American Legion on behalf of the Board explain-

ing the position of the University.



14. Regents' Committee on Health Services



(a) Dr. Anderson reported for Dr. Lombardi and himself on

the recommendation that a qualified consultant be em-

ployed to review the present Health Service of the Uni-

versity. He proposed that President Armstrong ask the

Washoe County Medical Society to appoint a committee

of three doctors to study the problem with the Univer-

sity Health Committee and make recommendations.



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

unanimously that the proposal of Dr. Anderson be ap-

proved and the President be authorized to make the

request of the Washoe County Medical Society.



(b) Memo from Ruth Russell, Chairman of the Faculty Health

Committee, under date of May 23, 1960 states that there

was a typographical error in the recommendation regard-

ing the Health Fee submitted to the Board of Regents at

the meeting of May 7, 1960. The recommendation should

read "That payment of health fee be required of all

students registered for seven or more credits and that

all other students be denied the privilege of paying

the health fee".



15. Land, Southern Nevada



The Regents discussed the proposed application for land con-

sisting of all of Section 9, T20S, R60E, MDB & M, Clark

County, 640 acres.



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

unanimously that the President be authorized to file formal

application with the Bureau of Land Management for the land.



16. Dr. Wood



Dr. Lombardi noted that the next meeting of the Board of

Regents will be without the presence of Academic Vice Pres-

ident Wood, wished him godspeed on behalf of the Board, and

thanked him for the good work he has done at the University

of Nevada. Dr. Wood expressed deep appreciation not only

for the fine resolution previously adopted by the Board,

but also for the six wonderful years of association with the

Regents in Nevada and for the friendships developed with the

members of the Board.



The meeting adjourned at 3:05 P.M.



The next meeting was set for July 22-23 for consideration of the

budgets for 1961-62 and 1962-63.
