Henningsen, Sheerin, Hilliard, Cahlan, Ross; Comptroller Gorman
and President Moseley.

Motion of Mr. Cahlan passed unanimously that the reading of the
minutes of the previous meeting, April 11-12, 1947, be dispensed

Heating Plant - Mr. Holcomb, Chairman, and Mr. Mac Kenzie, mem-
ber, of the State Planning Board, met with the Regents at their
request, to report for the Planning Board on the status of the
plans and funds for the new University Heating Plant.  The con-
tract with the firm of Headman, Ferguson and Carollo having been
completed with the submission and acceptance of plans and speci-
fications, the Planning Board had felt it desirable to have these
plans inspected and the local firm of Blanchard, Maher and
Lockard was engaged at a cost not to exceed $1000, which amount
is to be paid out of the State appropriation for the Heating
Plant.  A meeting of Mr. Holcomb and Mr. Mac Kenzie with Mr.
Lockard had been scheduled for 3 P.M., this day (June 6, 1947)
and Mr. Ross asked that they report back to the Board of Regents.

Geology Department - At 3:15 P.M. Dean Palmer, Dean Wood, Direc-
tor Carpenter, Professor Gianella, Professor Wheeler and Profes-
sor Cree came into the meeting at the invitation of the Regents
in order that the members of the Geology Department might have
an opportunity to appear before the Regents to determine where
the lines of authority meet in regard to the Department of
Geology.

Motion of Mr. Cahlan passed unanimously that the Board of Regents
reiterate its decision in moving the Department of Geology from
the College of Arts and Science to the College of Engineering,
and, further direct and rule that the Chairman of the Department
of Geology report only to the Dean of Engineering.

Newlands Experiment Farm, Fallon - A letter was read by President
Moseley signed by F. W. Parker, Assistant Chief of Bureau in
Charge of Soils and Agricultural Engineering and a reply written
by Mr. Fleming, which was submitted for the opinion of the Board
of Regents.

Motion of Mr. Cahlan passed unanimously that, with changes noted
by the Chairman, Mr. Fleming's letter be approved for transmittal
to Mr. Parker, and, further, that the Board believes it has the
right to accept the Farm as a gift, and that the Comptroller be
instructed to get an opinion from the Attorney General as to
whether paragraph 13 of Section 3 of Chapter 229, Statutes of
Nevada, 1945, gives the Regents this authority and if so, the
Comptroller and the President be authorized to seek the help of
our congressional representatives in securing transfer of title
to the University of Nevada in the event the Farm is to be
liquidated as of July 1, 1947, as per the letter from Mr. Parker.

be applied from the general funds of the University to the salary

sideration of services which the Director of Athletics renders to
the students in the Department of Physical Education for Men.

New Gymnasium - In line with the request of the Regents on its
inspection tour, April 11, 1947, the Comptroller presented for
consideration a bid on main court baskets to be hung from the
ceiling in the new Gymnasium.

Motion of Mr. Cahlan passed unanimously that the bid in the
amount of $855.40 be accepted and that the Comptroller be author-
ized to draw a check in that amount plus installation costs.

Dining Hall - Referring to page 65 of the 1946-47 catalogue, item
4 under "Regulations Governing the Univerity Dining Hall".

Motion of Mr. Cahlan passed unanimously that the statement be
changed to read as follows:

    Rebate for necessary absences or from withdrawals from the
    Dining Hall will not be made for a period of less than one
    week.  For absences involving one week or more, the rate
    of rebate will be 4/5 of the amount paid by the student for
    the period in question.  Due notice must be given and per-
    mission secured in advance, or no rebate will be allowed.

Comptroller Gorman read a letter from Mr. Allison asking that the
University pay part of the expenses for putting in a retaining
wall on his property to keep the water from the drainage ditch
on the University Farm from flooding the grounds.  It was unani-
mously agreed to leave the matter to the Comptroller for report
