6. Increase in Board and Room Charges, UNLV

President Zorn requested that a 10% increase in board and

room rates be approved for UNLV, effective July 1, 1969,

making the room charges $308 and board charges of $682

for a total of $990 annually. (A comparison of annual room

and board charges of Western States Universities for 1968-

69 was distributed for information and is filed with the

permanent minutes.)

Mr. John Cevette, CSUN President, spoke in support of the

recommendation, noting that he believed the fee increase

to be justified.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.

Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the fee increase be approved as


7. Approval of Purchase in Excess of $5000

President Zorn reported that bids had been opened on May 23,

1969 for canned goods and sundry items for use by the Stu-

dent Union Food Service. Complete bids were received from

Interstate Restaurant Supply for $6951.47 and Shetakis

Zellerbach Paper Company 670.43

Total $6185.94

Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the bids be awarded as indicated.

8. Proposed Settlement of Delinquent Bill for Computer Time

President Zorn reviewed the problem concerning the delin-

quent bill for computer time (as detailed in correspondence

identified as Ref. E and filed with permanent minutes).

President Zorn noted that this problem had resulted from a

reliance on a verbal agreement and, subsequently, instruc-

tions have been given which would prevent a recurrence.

President Zorn and Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval

of the course of action agreed to between Chief Deputy

Attorney General Daniel Walsh and Mr. Robert E. Wall, Jr.,

as outlined in Mr. Wall's letter of May 1, 1969 which

stated in part:

I am thus offering to settle the matter for $1000 under

the following stipulations:

1) On receipt of your notice of your agreement to sub-

mit the proposed agreement to the Board of Regents,

and to recommend its approval. I will send you my

check for $500 for a good faith deposit.

2) Within 15 days of receipt of notice of approval of

the settlement by the Board of Regents, I will send

you the remaining $500.

3) In the event of any legal action by you on this

matter, the offer is immediately withdrawn.

4) This offer is good until 15 May 1969.

Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

without dissent that the settlement recommended by Mr.

Walsh and endorsed by President Zorn and Chancellor

Humphrey, be approved and the Chief Deputy Attorney Gen-

eral be commended for effecting his favorable settlement.

9. Proposed Affiliation with State and Local Agencies

President Zorn reported that for several months Campus

Administrators have informally discussed potential affili-

ations with agencies located in southern Nevada whose pro-

grams relate directly to UNLV's Special Education program.

Such relationships, he said, would enable cooperative ef-

forts to obtain Federal funding for research, program de-

velopment, and possibly even for construction. Dr. Zorn

noted that preliminary negotiations have included the

Bureau of Mental Retardation, the Division of Mental Hy-

giene, Bureau of Maternal, Child and School Health, Clark

County Association for Retarded Children, Division of Re-

habilitation and the Helen J. Stewart School, Clark County

School District.

President Zorn asked for approval to formally negotiate

with these agencies and to authorize the Attorney General

to define affiliation agreements which could be arranged

with these agencies; agreements would then be submitted

for formal approval by the Regents.

President Miller noted that similar negotiations have been

underway in northern Nevada and suggested that the Board

of Regents also approve formal negotiation by the UNR

Administration. Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.

Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. White, carried

without dissent that the Administration of both Campuses

be authorized to enter into formal negotiations with both

the agencies listed above and any other agencies which

might be appropriate.

10. Establishment of a College of Hotel Administration

President Zorn presented a request from the College of

Business and Economics, endorsed by him and by the UNLV

Faculty Senate, that effective July 1, 1969, the Hotel

Administration program be separated from the College of

Business and Economics and established as a separate

College. Supporting data presented by President Zorn is

identified as Ref. G and is filed with the permanent


In response to a question from Mr. Bell, Dr. Zorn noted

that the principal funding for this program comes from

the Nevada Resort Association.

Mrs. Knudtsen asked if it was intended that the College

would have a Dean. Dr. Zorn said he did not believe it

would be necessary to have a Dean at this point. He

added that he believed that UNLV might be getting too

many Deans and a careful look should be taken of the

total academic structure.

Mrs. Knudtsen expressed concern that the stature of the

College of Hotel Administration might be lessened. Mr.

Hug agreed, stating that if the College is headed by a

Dean it might make the College more visible in the educa-

tional world.

Mrs. Knudtsen referred to the policy statement which had

been suggested by Mr. Jacobsen and Dr. White that an

interim period of one month be allowed before the Board

would take action on any new program or Department. How-

ever, it was agreed that in the absence of any opposition

this proposal could be acted upon.

Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

without dissent that the College of Hotel Administration

be established at UNLV effective July 1, 1969.

11. Designation of the "Al Cahlan Endowment Fund"

Dr. Zorn reported that there is presently $1075 on deposit

in the UNLV Library Gift account which was contributed so

that the interest could be used to purchase volumes in

memory of Mr. Al Cahlan. He noted that Mr. Harold Erickson,

Director of the Library, has recommended that these funds

be transferred into the University of Nevada Endowment

Fund and be formally designated as the Al Cahlan Endowment


Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.

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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

12. Increase in Student Insurance Program

President Zorn spoke of the limited health services pro-

vided to UNLV students, noting that this has caused

considerable concern about the scope and coverage of

supplementary accident insurance policy. The present

premium of $3.25 per semester provides only limited bene-

fits. Dr. Zorn noted that negotiations are now underway

for student health and hospitalization and pending the

selection of a final policy recommended that the student

insurance premium fee be increased up to a maximum of

$20 per student (waivable as at present) per semester.

Mr. Hug asked for comments from UNLV students. Mr. John

Cevette said it looked as if this policy could be ob-

tained for about $15 per student per semester. He noted

further that the students endorse the proposal for in-

creased coverage.

Mr. Hug asked if any form of insurance had been selected.

Mr. Cevette noted that they have received only one bid

for $45 per year but that is more than the students wish

to pay.

Dr. Anderson spoke of the number of time foreign students

have been under insured and have had medical problems.

He asked whether or not the Administration should look

into mandatory insurance for foreign students. Dr. White


Dr. Anderson suggested that the Administration be requested

to consider further the question of mandatory insurance for

foreign students and bring back a recommendation.

President Miller pointed out that foreign students at UNR

are now required to take the health and accident insurance.

Mr. Bilbray said he was concerned about the "acceptance by

silence" aspect; i. e., if a student did not sign a waiver

card or indicate he did not want the insurance he would be

forced to pay the fee. There was discussion concerning

the student's opportunity to accept the coverage or waive

the coverage. It was finally agreed that the procedure

provided that at some point the student will either pay

the fee or sign a waiver card, thus taking a positive


Mr. Ronzone entered the meeting.

Mr. Jacobsen endorsed the suggestion to make insurance for

foreign students mandatory at UNLV as it is at UNR.

Mr. Hug asked if Dr. Zorn would rather wait before action

was taken on this suggestion. Dr. Zorn said he felt jus-

tified and was satisfied to have it incorporated.

Mr. Jacobsen moved that the UNLV student insurance fee be

increased up to a maximum of $20 per semester with the

premium waivable as at present, and that foreign students

be required to accept the insurance. Motion seconded by

Mr. Bilbray, carried without dissent.

13. Purchase of Land, UNLV

President Zorn recalled that the 1969 Legislature had pro-

vided the sum of $591,000 to the State Planning Board to

enable UNLV to acquire land immediately adjacent to the

Campus. Purchases of two parcels of property have been

authorized, using a total of $564,500. President Zorn

recommended that the remaining funds be used to acquire a

parcel from the Land Foundation of approximately 2 acres.

This is the former Boy Scout property with a valuation of

approximately $26,000.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.

Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. White, carried

without dissent that the above purchase be approved as


14. There was a discussion of the Board's earlier action in

requesting the Clark County Commissioners to vacate the

Swenson Lane easement which runs through that area of

the Campus where it is planned that development of the

athletic fields will occur. (See B/R minutes of December

13-14, 1968.) Dr. Baepler noted that no action has been

taken on the University's request.

Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. White, carried

without dissent that a letter be sent by the Chairman on

behalf of the Board of Regents urging action by the Com-

missioners on this request.

15. Bob Davis Scholarship Fund

President Zorn reported that a committee at UNLV has been

gathering information but details for the proposed use of

the funds from this source are not fully developed. He

requested that he be allowed to present his proposal in


Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the request be approved.

16. Music Department, UNR

President Miller reported briefly on the developments con-

cerning the Marching Band at UNR. He noted that there

would be a Marching Band with 45 members and a Pep Band

with 15 members. He said that it was intended that the

Marching Band would perform at all home football games

and at least one game away.

President Miller stated that he wished to express com-

mendation to Peter Reams for his effective handling of

the matter for the students. He also noted that the

50 cent allocation of ASUN money will continue.

President Miller also indicated that he will bring a

recommendation to the July meeting concerning allocation

of out-of-state fee waivers for music, recalling that

the Board had taken action to allocate 50% of the avail-

able waivers to athletics and 50% to other catagories

without specifying the number available for music.

17. Request to Cancel Student Loan

President Millr reported that Mr. Claude P. Moore borrowed

$500 from the Garvey Rhodes Loan Fund in February, 1959.

Repayment of all but $95 had been made as of November 24,

1965, but no further payment has been received since that

date. Dr. Miller noted that on March 6, 1968, a Debtors

Petition was filed in the Southern Division of the U. S.

District Court for the Northern District of California

and a Discharge of Bankruptcy was filed by the District

Court on December 9, 1968. He recommended that the balance

of Mr. Moore's debt be written off and the hold on his

University record cancelled. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.

Mr. Bilbray moved that the above recommendation not be

approved, stating that the Board of Regents had an obli-

gation to collect this debt. Motion seconded by Mr.

Jacobsen, carried.

Dr. Anderson suggested this matter be left to the discre-

tion of the President to determine if Mr. Moore is really

unable to pay the debt.

Mr. Bilbray moved to reconsider the above action and sug-

gested that if the President should find that it is a

true case of bankruptcy, then the loan should be cancelled.

Mr. Hug read a letter from Mr. Moore's attorney informing

the Board of the bankruptcy proceedings and requesting

cancellation of the loan and release of Mr. Moore's record.

Motion to reconsider carried with Dr. White opposing.

Dr. Anderson suggested that President Miller be authorized

to look into Mr. Moore's actual status and if it is deter-

mined that he can pay the balance of the loan, his tran-

script should not be released.

Mrs. Knudtsen expressed concern, suggesting that the Board

should not lose its perspective in this matter. Mr. Bell

concurred, pointing out that the man had been judged a

bankrupt and the Board was obliged to accept the Court's


Mr. Jacobsen expressed concern that cancellation of the

loan would establish an undesirable precedent and moved

that the Board reject the request to cancel Mr. Moore's

debt. Motion seconded by Mr. Seeliger and carried with

the following role call vote:

Yes - Regents Anderson, Bilbray, Grant, Hug,

Jacobsen, Seeliger, White

No - Regents Bell, Knudtsen, Ronzone

Regent Lombardi absent.

18. Transfer of Department of Anatomy

President Miller presented, with his endorsement, a recom-

mendation from Deans Elmore and Smith that the Department

of Anatomy be transferred from the Orvis School of Nursing

to the School of Medical Sciences, effective July 1, 1969.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.

Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the transfer be approved as recom-


19. Waiver of Tuition and Fees for Graduate Assistants

President Miller recommended that Graduate Assistants

who, in order to complete their degree requirements by

September, have to register for credits of thesis in

the Summer Session, be granted a waiver of tuition and

fees for that Summer Session as a condition of employ-

ment during the previous academic year.

In response to a question from Dr. Peltier, Dr. Miller

stated that this fee waiver would be for thesis credit


Chancellor Humphrey noted that this has been the practice

at UNR for several years, with the approval of former

President Armstrong, and is being referred to the Board

at this point to clarify the record.

Mr. Jacobsen asked if it would be desirable to extend this

fee waiver to UNLV. Dr. Baepler suggested UNLV would wish

to look carefully at the matter before recommending its


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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved

for UNR, effective immediately, and that UNLV be requested

to consider the desirability of extending the fee waiver

to that Campus.

20. Approval of Purchase in Excess of $5000, UNLV

President Zorn reported that bids were opened on May 26,

1969 for purchase of a nuclear spectrometer, as follows:

Perkin-Elmer Corporation $26,500

Varian Corporation 26,735

President Zorn recommended the bid of Perkin-Elmer Corpora-

tion be accepted in the amount of $26,500. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.

Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

21. Class A Action

President Miller reported the following Class A Action

by the UNR faculty, which amends the University Code,

with his recommendation for approval:

All meetings of the Faculty Senate shall be open to

members of the University community - faculty, staff

and students. However, the Executive Board may re-

strict attendance at any Senate meeting to Senate

members, faculty and invited guests by publishing

such announcement at least one week prior to the

scheduled Senate meeting, and the Senate may at any

time by a majority vote, restrict attendance.

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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

22. Department of Biochemistry

President Miller presented, with his endorsement, a recom-

mendation that, effective July 1, 1969, the Department of

Biochemistry, Max C. Fleischmann College of Agriculture,

become a joint responsibility of the College of Agriculture

and the College of Arts and Science. Additional justifica-

tion was presented by President Miller (see Ref. L filed

with permanent minutes).

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.

Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

President Miller presented a proposal for the establish-

ment of an Equal Opportunity Program designed to assist

in recruiting into the UNR student body larger numbers of

Nevada students from minority groups. He stated that the

1969-70 goal would be to recruit 20 additional black stu-

dents and 20 additional Indian students and 10 additional

members of other minority groups. This would use a maxi-

mum of $50,000 (scholarships of $1000 each) if the goals

for 1969-70 are realized. Additional supporting material

was presented by President Miller (see Ref. M filed with

permanent minutes).

Dr. Anderson suggested that the entire amount of money

available through the Davis Scholarship Fund not be dedi-

cated for this purpose, noting the need for funds for

retraining women to enter the professional world.

Mr. Jacobsen suggested that consideration be given to pro-

viding funds to students who, because of need to work to

support themselves, cannot maintain the grades to remain

eligible for other scholarships or financial aid.

Mr. Seeliger asked why this proposal was developed for

minority groups alone. President Miller pointed out that

Nevada must do more to recruit Nevada students from these

minority and/or economically disadvantaged groups. He

noted that even if it were not a desirable thing to do,

the University would be required by regulations of Federal

programs to look into this kind of recruiting.

Mr. Grant asked about the provisions of the Davis will.

Mr. Hug read the pertinent section, as follows:

The income from the endowment shall be used to defray

the expense of College educations in whole or in part

of any poor young men or women, preferably Nevada born,

who are selected by the trustees of the University of

Nevada in their sole discretion as the best suited for

College educations and financially unable to defray the

expenses of such education in whole or in part.

Dr. White suggested that some of the Davis money be used

for retraining women. Dr. Anderson concurred and suggest-

ed approval of the philosophy reflected in the proposal

but with modifications as discussed.

President Miller noted that he had been requested to de-

velop a proposal for the distribution of the Davis

Scholarship Funds. He said he welcomed the Regents'

suggestions but would like to see the program as proposed

go forward, pointing out that there would be additional

funds from the Davis Scholarship Fund for the other areas

discussed by the Regents.

Dr. Anderson asked if this matter could be delayed until

next month. President Miller urged that it not be delayed

in that it would cause problems in recruiting next Fall.

Mr. Bilbray said he believed that funds for minority groups

were needed badly and said he considered President Miller's

proposal to be a very good one.

Mr. Hug pointed out that the discussion had involved a num-

ber of areas, noting that President Miller had recommended

the use of the Davis money for scholarships for minority

students while others had talked about devoting only $50,000

to this program and using the balance (estimated at approxi-

mately $26,000) for other scholarships.

Dr. Anderson moved that up to $50,000 of the Davis Scholar-

ship Fund be used as outlined in President Miller's pro-

posal (Ref. M); the remaining $26,000 be used for other

needy students; any unexpended funds (of the $50,000) be

added to the $16,000 and used for additional scholarhsips;

and that it was understood that the minority scholarships

fund would be administered by the Director of the Equal

Opportunity Program and the Office of Admissions and the

remaining funds would be administered by the Scholarship

Committee. Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent.

25. Report of the Plant and Property Committee Meeting of

June 5, 1969

Mr. Jacobsen reported that the Plant and Property Committee

had met the previous day to review the planning of progress

for the two College of Education buildings. He noted the

presentation by each Campus of the program concepts envi-

sioned; UNR was employing the "mass plan" concept while

UNLV was anticipating a high rise structure.

Mr. Jacobsen moved that the "mass plan" concept recommended

by the UNR College of Education on June 5, 1969, be approved

and that the Plant and Property Committee be authorized to

approve the preliminary plans for this project (anticipating

the plans would be ready for approval prior to the next B/R

meeting). Motion seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried without


Mr. Jacobsen noted that the plans for the UNLV College of

Education building were not sufficiently advanced to re-

quire action at this time.

26. Report of the Educational Policies Committee Meeting of

June 5, 1969

Mr. Bell reported that the Educational Policies Committee

had met the previous day to discuss possible coordination

of new academic programs. He presented the following rec-

ommendations of the Committee:

1. The Educational Policies Committee shall meet in

conjunction with each regularly scheduled Board

of Regents meeting at least for the next year

with the ultimate goal that guidelines will be

established which will serve for the development

of the two Campuses and the total University

System. At these meetings the Committee should

concern itself with possible modifications, ex-

pansion and improvement of the policy governing

the development of new academic programs at both

Campuses. Within a reasonable period of time,

hopefully not later than 6 months, Campus officers

and their staffs will be invited to present plans

for the development and future course of their

institution so that the Board of Regents can make

a total assessment of the needs of each Campus in

the area of graduates, professional and under-

graduate programs, their priorities, feasibility

and costs.

2. In reference to Item 26:

The Educational Policies Committee wishes to recom-

mend the policy statement be amended as follows:

When a new program is suggested or the demand for

new fields of endeavor become obvious the Presi-

dent of the University involved should make a Phase

I presentation to the Board. It shall be the policy

of the Board of Regents, that before any new degree

programs may be offered, and before new Colleges,

Schools or Departments can be established, such

proposal must be introduced at one meeting and

voted upon no earlier than the following meeting.

Mr. Bell moved that both recommendations of the Committee

be approved by the Board. Motion seconded by Mr. Jacobsen.

Mrs. Knudtsen suggested that some provision be made for

exception to the policy statement in Recommendation #2.

Mr. Jacobsen disagreed, stating that to make an exception

would defeat the purpose.

Mr. Bell withdrew his motion to allow consideration of

each recommendation separately.

Motion by Mr. Bell, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried with-

out dissent that Recommendation #2 be approved.

Mr. Bell moved that Recommendation #2 be approved. Motion

seconded by Mr. Jacobsen.

Mr. Knudtsen moved to amend the motion to add "except in

extraordinary circumstances."

Mr. Hug asked for comments from the Administration.

President Miller said he could foresee no problem with this

kind of policy nor could he foresee any circumstances which

would require action at a first meeting. President Zorn

and Mr. Warburton agreed.

Mrs. Knudtsen withdrew her motion for amendment. Motion

carried without dissent.

The meeting adjourned for lunch and reconvened at 1:45 P.M.

Mr. Jacobsen was not present for the afternoon session.

27. Atmospherium-Planetarium Estimative Budget, 1968-69

Mr. Warburton recalled that the Max C. Fleischmann Founda-

tion had made an annual grant of $60,000 for the operation

of the Atmospherium-Planetarium. However, he said, the

estimative budget recommended by DRI and appoved by the

Board for the current fiscal year was for $55,000. Mr.

Warburton requested approval of the use of the additional

$5000 for operating expenses.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.

Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

28. DRI Indirect Cost Recovery

Mr. Warburton recommended that effective July 1, 1969, the

indirect cost recovery on DRI grants and contracts be al-

located as follows:

(1) 94% of all such recovery to be paid into a fund for

use by DRI for any purpose justifiably chargeable to

such indirect cost funds; and

(2) The remaining 5% of such indirect cost recovery to be

paid into a separate fund for use by principal investi-

gators on contingencies not foreseen in their original

grant requests. The expenditure of these funds will

be by mutual agreement between the principal investi-

gator and the Director of DRI.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, provided, however,

that the 95% fund be subject to the usual budget review and

approval by the Board of Regents.

Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

29. Report and Recommendations on Exemptions from Medical


Mr. Humphrey recalled that in February, 1969 the Board con-

sidered a request from Mr. Darrell D. Luce that Christian

Science students be exempted from all medical entrance re-

quirements. They instructed the Administration "to make

a study of the present policy as it now exists and consider

the possibility of eliminating the requirement for a small

pox vaccination...and...that a report be brought back to

the Board in June...and the report include the rationale

for excluding part time students from the requirement, and

information concerning whether or not faculty are required

to have a physical examination."

Mr. Humphrey noted that the Presidents had requested that

this item be rescheduled for the July meeting.

Mr. Bilbray pointed out that this was originally scheduled

to coincide with a Las Vegas meeting but agreed that wait-

ing until the September meeting would not be practical.

Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that this matter be deferred until the

July meeting.

30. Resolution on Loan Agreement

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the following



WHEREAS, authorization has previously been granted

for the construction of a Physical Sciences building

on the Campus of the University of Nevada, Reno; and

WHEREAS, a Higher Education Facilities Act of 1963,

Title III loan in the amount of $1,651,000 has been

approved by the U. S. Department of Health, Education

and Welfare; and

WHEREAS, this loan money will not be available to the

University until the project is 80% complete;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Neil D. Humphrey,

Chancellor of the University of Nevada System, be and

hereby is authorized to execute an interim construction

loan agreement with First National Bank of Nevada in

the amount of $1.2 million for a period of 6 months

at an annual interest rate of 5 1/4%.

Adopted and approved by the Board of Regents of the

University of Nevada on the 6th day of June, 1969.

Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

without dissent that the above resolution be adopted.

32. 1969-70 Work Program

Chancellor Humphrey presented the Work Program for 1969-70

by reviewing his transmittal letter as follows:

The 1969-70 Work Program for the University of Nevada

System is hereby transmitted to you and recommended

for approval. This Work Program provides for expendi-

tures of $19,938,461 in the coming year, which is an

increase of approximately $3.7 million or 22.8% over


It is significant to note that in addition to provid-

ing a 13.4% increase in the all ranks average salary

for incumbent faculty (from $10,964 currently to $12,430

for 1969-70) and for the salary adjustments for classi-

fied and technical employees as provided by the Legis-

lature, this Work Program also provides for 226 new

positions within the System. UNLV will have 43 new

faculty positions and 53 new support positions. The

total number of positions on that Campus increases by

32.3%. UNR will have 27 new faculty and 44 new sup-

port positions for an increase of 9.4% in total posi-

tions. The balance of new positions occurs in other


Revised enrollment projections are also included in

this document. The projections used when the 1969-71

budget request was submitted to the Governor September

1, 1968, have been revised based upon the latest in-

formation available. It is interesting to note that

the Full Time Equivalent Student projection for UNR

has been increased 120 but the revised estimate of

Adjusted Student Credits remains approximately the

same. At UNLV the expected FTE enrollment is down 200

or 5.8% from the earlier projection; however, the ASC

expected is up 2080 or 1.2% due to a change in the

"mix" or level of students.

The student-faculty ratio at UNR will be 16.8 to 1 and

at UNLV will be 18.0 to 1, or 1.2 students higher. The

ratio of Adjusted Student Credits taught per faculty

member will be 474 at UNR and 492 at UNLV. See page 12

for a comparison of faculty positions in the Work Pro-

gram and the budget request. As can be observed, parity

has not been achieved; however, the solution lies within

the ability of the Presidents to adjust their Work Pro-

gram request.

This Work Program is the final step in a budgeting proc-

ess which started in January, 1968. At that time the

Department Chairmen made their original requests to

the Deans. These requests were reviewed by the Deans

and the Presidents and a request prepared. After re-

viewing the original requests the Chancellor, with the

cooperation and participation of the Advisory Cabinet,

developed certain program budget formulas which were

applied in developing a Chancellor's recommendation

aimed at achieving budget parity for the two Campuses.

This budget was increased slightly by the Board of Re-

gents and a request of $21,866,264 was submitted to

the Governor. After review and action by the Governor

and the Legislature, we are able to develop firm plans

for the use of nearly $19.9 million.

The Chancellor's office has reviewed the Work Program

requests made by the Presidents and these requests were

explained to the Advisory Cabinet. Some of the analysis

(e. g. of instruction and Department research alloca-

tion) is included here. I share with the Presidents

certain reservations concerning their proposals. For

example, the absence of a contingency reserve, the re-

duction in the library book acquisition allocation, and

the severe financial limitations upon physical plant

operations. I do not, however, wish to recommend any

revision in their Work Program requests; consequently,

the Administration proposal is unanimous.

The authorized expenditures for Cooperative Extension

Service exceed that originally authorized by the Legis-

lature by $9332. This increase is attributed to an

increase in county funds. The Chief of the Budget

Division of the Department of Administration has the

authority under the State Budget Act to approve this

change. Upon adoption by the Board of Regents of this

Work Program, this approval will be requested.

The budget request was prepared under the assumption

that UNLV would assume the accounting function for that

Campus on July 1, 1969. Because of the work involved

and the lack of funds to do adequate planning, it will

be necessary for UNR to provide that service during

the 1969-70 fiscal year. UNLV will negotiate with UNR

for the services of the UNR Controller's office during

the 1969-70 fiscal year.

The budget detail for instruction at UNLV is presented

in College Summary only in this document. The UNLV

Administration will present at the July meeting of the

Board of Regents the Departmental breakdown they wish

to follow.

One qualification I do wish to have placed upon this

Work Program is the same as in the years past. I rec-

ommend that in approving this Work Program the Board

specify that all salary savings revert monthly to the

appropriate Contingency Reserve and that the usual

controls over transfers from the Contingency Reserve

continue to be applicable.

Chancellor Humphrey requested comments from Presidents Zorn

and Miller and Acting Director Warburton.

Dr. Zorn pointed out that the first concern in developing

the Work Program had been the protection of salaries of

incumbent faculty. He noted that UNLV had reduced the

number of support positions and transferred the funds to

other areas. They were not able, he said, to improve the

library book fund nor the amount of support available to

physical plant.

President Miller stated that his comments would be much

the same as President Zorn's. He noted that it was a

matter of making a choice as to where the money should go.

Mr. Hug stated that he was concerned over the decision to

cut the Buildings and Grounds support. President Miller

agreed that this was cause for concern, noting that it

would mean fewer repairs and improvements; however, it

is possible that money can be channelled into this area

during the year from the Contingency Reserve when that

reserve is established from salary savings.

Mr. Bilbray asked what the effect would be of a larger

enrollment than that projected. Dr. Zorn said that UNLV

might have to limit enrollment.

Mr. Warburton spoke of the State appropriation for DRI

support. He said that DRI is continuing to fall further

behind in its timetable to have State funds pick up the

salaries of senior scientists, noting that they will be

approximately $71,000 behind in 1969-70 and $117,000 be-

hind in 1970-71. He said, however, they have taken a

tentative step this year by providing partial support

from State funds for their senior scientists.

Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that the amount of money

for DRI support in the Work Program concerns only a por-

tion of the total and the DRI Financial Plan for 1969-70

from non-appropriated sources will be presented to the

Board of Regents in July.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the Work Pro-

gram for 1969-70 as presented, including the recommenda-

tions contained in his letter of transmittal.

Mr. Seeliger pointed out that the University had enjoyed

an especially good legislative year, as indicated by a $20

million Work Program, and moved that the Chancellor be

commended on the effective relations maintained between

his office and the members of the 1969 Legislature. Motion

seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried unanimously.

Mr. Hug agreed that this had been an exceptionally fine

year and the Chancellor had done an excellent job.

Chancellor Humphrey expressed appreciation for the com-

mendation and noted that total cooperation had been re-

ceived from the Regents, the administrative officers,

faculty and students. He noted that he had received a

number of comments from Legislators to the effect that

the University cooperation was very much appreciated.

Dr. Anderson moved that the Board of Regents also formally

and publicly express its appreciation to the Governor and

the members of the Legislature for their very find support

of the University. Motion seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried


33. Estimative Budgets

Chancellor Humphrey presented estimative budgets for 1969-70

for programs not supported by State appropriation, noting

that if the money is not generated it will not be spent.

Mr. Humphrey noted that the budgets for Intercollegiate

Athletics and Intercolligate Athletics Scholarship and

Recruiting are based on fee increases not yet approved. He

further noted that the budget for the UNLV Student Union

would be forwarded when ready.

Jim Hardesty, ASUN President, referred to the budget for

the Jot Travis Student Union and asked that no action be

taken on this budget until there was an opportunity for

student government representatives to discuss it further

with the Administration. His concern, he said, dealt with

the fact that the Student Union is owned by the University

and yet is being paid for by the students.

President Miller noted that there had been some discussions

concerning this and efforts are being made to pick up some

of the expenses of the building. However, he said, this

budget covers the activities of the students. Mr. Hardesty

agreed but pointed out that faculty and Administration also

use the building and perhaps should pay a share of the


Chancellor Humphrey stated that this specific point had

not been discussed with the State Budget Director; however,

the State Budget Director has previously ruled that UN

auxiliary enterprises must fund their own operating ex-


Chancellor Humphrey and President Miller agreed to with-

draw the budget for Jot Travis Union and reschedule it

for July.

Mrs. Knudtsen moved that the Estimative Budgets be approved

as submitted with the exception of the budgets of Inter-

collegiate Athletics, Intercollegiate Athletics Scholar-

ship and Recruiting, and Jot Travis Union. Motion seconded

by Mr. Seeliger, carried without dissent.

34. Selection Procedures for University Officers

Chancellor Humphrey noted that a proposed revision to the

By-Laws of the Board of Regents was presented at the May

meeting and was referred to the Chancellor's Advisory

Cabinet for further study and proposal of specific wording.

Mr. Humphrey said that the Cabinet had not completed its

review and proposed to bring this item forward in July.

35. Proposed Change in Meeting Dates

Chancellor Humphrey stated that in response to requests

that the Fall meetings be rescheduled so that the November

meeting would coincide with the UNR/UNLV football game to

be played in Reno on November 22, the following proposed

schedule had been developed for the balance of the calendar


Present Schedule Proposed Schedule

UNR 07-11/12-69 No Change

UNLV 09-12/13-69 UNLV 09-05/06-69

UNR 10-10/11-69 UNLV 10-03/04-69

UNLV 11-07/08-69 UNR 11-20/21-69

UNR 12-12/13-69 UNR 12-19/20-69

Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above schedule be adopted.

Upon motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, the

following supplemental items were added to the agenda:

36. Approval of Purchase in Excess of $5000, UNR

President Miller reported that bids had been requested for

the printing of a 2-year supply of Final Grade Reports and

Mid-Semester Progress Reports for the two Registrars'


UARCO, Inc. $6290.68

Moore Business Forms No bid submitted

Valley Business Forms No bid submitted

President Miller noted that it is intended that this pur-

chase be shared proportionately by the two Campuses

($3329.21 for UNR; $3961.47 for UNLV) and represents a

sizeable savings to each institution when compared to

separate 1-year cost estimates.

President Miller and President Zorn recommended the bid

of UARCO, Inc. in the amount of $6290.68 be accepted.

Chancellor Humphrey concurred.

Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

37. Property Acquisition, UNR

President Miller requested authorization from the Board of

Regents to purchase 2 residences at 1061 and 1065 Evans

Avenue. This property has been offered for sale by Dr.

Loring Williams and is within the master plan for acquisi-

tion by UNR. Dr. Miller noted that the property had been

appraised by Dale C. Bell, M. A. I., and proposed that the

Administration be authorized to negotiate for and purchase

the property from the UNR Capital Improvement Fee Fund,

provided only that the purchase price does not exceed the

appraised value. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.

Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Dr. White, carried

without dissent that the above purchase be approved.

38. Report of Telephone Poll Re. Award of Construction Contract

Chancellor Humphrey noted that a telephone poll had been

conducted of the Board of Regents on May 26, 1969, with

the following results:

Bids have been received for the construction of the

Interim Office building, UNLV.

Blanchard Construction, Inc. is the low bidder in the

amount of $199,400. This low bid includes all of the

alternatives. The budget for this project is $275,000.

The State Planning Board has agreed to use the dif-

ference between the low bid and the construction

budget to do landscaping and parking, put in a side-

walk on Harmon and add a building fire sprinkling

system and pay for a fire plug near the building.

President Zorn and Chancellor Humphrey recommend

39. Unappropriated Surplus, General University Operation

Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the problem as follows:

For a number of years, the University of Nevada has

each year expended appropriated monies for General

University Operation before expending the non-appro-

priated monies. The non-appropriated monies are

mostly student fees and this practice gave the Uni-

versity and the State the advantage of a built-in

safeguard against either liberal or conservative

revenue estimating techniques. It also allowed

extra revenue to be gained for the University, as

approved in the legislatively adopted budget, from

the short-term investment of the non-appropriated

monies. Using this technique, any unexpended monies

at the end of a fiscal year reverted to the Univer-

sity's unappropriated surplus account. From this

account came the budgeted opening cash balance for

the next fiscal year and, if necessary, unrealized

budgeted income was compensated for from the unap-

propriated surplus. This allowed for a business-like

operation of the University budget and kept deficits

from occurring. It is further interesting to note

that the independent auditors have recommended that

the unappropriated surplus should be approximately

$500,000 rather than the $232,000 held in this account

June 30, 1968.

During the 1969 Legislative Session, Mr. Robert E.

Bruce, Fiscal Analyst, Legislative Counsel Bureau,

requested an opinion from the Legislative Counsel

concerning the legality of the University's approach.

The Legislative Counsel issued an opinion to the

effect that the University was obligated to spend

non-appropriated monies first and, therefore, any

unexpended budget credits at the end of the fiscal

year, plus any excess non-appropriated revenue,

should revert to the State General Fund rather than

to the University unappropriated surplus account.

I requested the Assembly Ways and Means Committee and

the Senate Finance Committee to insert language in the

General Appropriation Act which would allow our past

practice to continue. Mr. Howard E. Barrett, Director

of Administration, joined me in recommending this

request. After initially agreeing to this course of

action, the money committees decided to not insert

such language and, in effect, require the University

to revert its unappropriated surplus to the State's

General Fund at the end of FY 1968-69, less the amount

included in the approved 1969-71 University budget as

an opening cash balance for each year of the biennium.

This will result in a reversion of approximately


It is very evident to me, based upon my experience in

managing these funds for the University as well as my

earlier experience in the State Budget Office, that

what we have been doing is good business practice for

the University. Further, I believe that what is good

for the University must, in the long-run, be good for

the State. It is conceivable that another attorney

might come to a different conclusion than the Legisla-

tive Counsel; however, it is clear to me that legisla-

tive intent, as expressed by the money committees, is

that the University revert its unappropriated surplus

at the end of FY 1968-69. I recommend, therefore,

that the Board of Regents acquiesce in this procedure

and that we attempt to convince the 1971 Legislature

of the desirability of again using the technique fol-

lowed in the past.

Chancellor Humphrey suggested the problem is now one of

whose money does the University spend first.

Mr. Bilbray asked why the University could not spend the

$117,000, suggesting that it be given to UNLV. Mr. Hum-

phrey explained that the University could expend funds

only within the limits of the authorized expenditure,

and the only way the University could exceed that limit

would be to request and receive the Governor's approval

to increase the authorized expenditure ceiling. He stated

that such a request would result in adverse legislative

reaction, unless it were fully documented as an exceptional

or of an emergency nature.

Mr. Walsh asked if there might be a constitutional problem

in so far as the Board's authority over non-appropriated


Chancellor Humphrey said that in view of discussions with

the Legislative Committees, he would rather have the Board

of Regents Say, "we disagree but we will comply."

Mr. Bilbray suggested the Board of Regents might be guilty

of breach of responsibility if they turned the money back

to the State. Chancellor Humphrey recommended that if this

were the case, the next best action would be to escrow the


Mr. Hug pointed out that the Chancellor had gained the con-

fidence of the Legislature and its committees and was aware

of the feelings of the Legislature in this matter. He

cautioned against taking action contrary to the Legisla-

ture's expressed wishes, suggesting that such action might

cause the University to lose the ground gained during this


Mr. Bilbray stated that he would prefer to go back to the

Governor with a request and worry about the Legislature

next year.

Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

with Mr. Bilbray opposing, that the Chancellor's recom-

mendation be approved.

40. Institutional Memberships

Mr. Humphrey submitted a list of institutional memberships

held by the University of Nevada System or by one of its

Campuses, noting that it was provided at this time for in-

formation and required no action. He noted that he would

bring back at a subsequent meeting a list of these member-

ships divided between the Campuses.

41. DRI Deficit Accounts

Mr. Humphrey commented on the amount of work which Mr.

Warburton has been doing to straighten out the business

affairs of DRI, noting that he has to date done a particu-

larly fine job of resolving the deficit accounts.

After a thorough review of all such deficit accounts, Mr.

Humphrey stated, it was concluded that 8 accounts, with a

total deficit of $58,568.26 should be called to the atten-

tion of the Board and special arrangements made for repay-

ment. He noted that none of the accounts have revenue

sources sufficient to cover the identified deficits. The

accounts are as follows:

1-33-6000 - General Administration-Water Resources

Cost reimbursement account expended in excess of

contract. $1412.56 not recoverable.

1-33-6032 - Dissolved Constituents Natural Waters

Cost reimbursement account expended in excess of

contract. $1191.69 not recoverable.

2-33-7501 - Red Rock Area

Cost reimbursement account expended in excess of

contract. $454.91 not recoverable.

1-33-7004 - Application of Stimulation Theory

Cost reimbursement account expended in excess of

contract. $2804.01 not recoverable.

1-16-3073 - Software Development

Expenditure for research support not covered by

receipt from indirect cost earnings. $4814.56

not recoverable.

1-20-3035 - Fleischmann-DRI Stead Building and Facilities

Overexpenditure in renovation of Sage building.

$3765.05 not recoverable.

1-20-3050 - Water Resources Small Projects

Laboratory of Industrial Research (formerly

principal support was Sea & Ski Company) ac-

cumulated overexpenditure. This account can

now be operated on a break-even basis.

$34,769.44 not recoverable.

1-41-4069 - DRI Shop Account

Machine Shop expenses originally planned to be

charged to Bureau of Reclamation contract.

Changes on final work program for this contract

precluded these charges. $9356.04 not re-


Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Board of Regents

direct that:

(1) in closing the FY 1968-69 books, all balances of DRI

accounts, indirect cost accumulation and any discre-

tionary funds, be transferred to cover these deficit

accounts (it is estimated that as much as $25,000

might be available);

(2) the balance of the deficit be repaid during 1969-70

from DRI indirect cost revenue by transfer during

the year as such monies are received; and,

(3) in preparing the DRI Financial Plan for 1969-70 for

presentation to the Board in July, this repayment

be taken into consideration.

Chancellor Humphrey also noted that the reimbursement

cycle of some DRI cost reimbursement accounts is unduly

long and contrary to the best interests of the University.

He recommended that the DRI Administration make every ef-

fort to reduce the reimbursement cycle of such accounts,

securing advances whenever feasible, and that no new ac-

counts with a cost reimbursement cycle in excess of 3

months be accepted without specific authority from the Board

of Regents. He also recommended that the Board direct that

no expenditures be made in anticipation of receipt of a

binding grant or contract unless DRI discretionary monies,

unobligated for any other purpose, are available to fully

cover such expenditures and, further, that such expendi-

tures be reported to the next meeting of the Board of


Mr. Seeliger moved that the Chancellor's recommendations be

approved. Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray.

Mr. Warburton stated that he agreed with most of the Chan-

cellor's recommendations. He noted, however, that the

subject of reimbursement cycle is of great concern point-

ing out that DRI is almost always 1/2 million dollars in

arrears in billing. He requested consideration by the

Regents of a contingency reserve for the Institute. Mr.

Warburton also stated that he was in agreement with the

recommendation that specific authority be requested to ac-

cept grants; however, he expressed concern about the last

recommendation of the Chancellor. He explained the pro-

cedures followed by many agencies; i. e., that verbal

authority would be given to spend money at a certain level.

Chancellor Humphrey said he was concerned about the lack

of a written contract or agreement, cautioning that the

University should not expend money beyond that which is

in reverse to cover that expenditure.

Mr. Warburton stated that DRI has never spent money it

did not have. Chancellor Humphrey stated that if they

had not done so in the past, why should they be concerned

about a recommendation that they not do so in the future.

He further stated that unless a contract is in writing,

the University should not gamble in excess of the "money

in the bank".

Motion carried without dissent.

42. Funding of Recruitment and Screening Committees

Chancellor Humphrey stated that funds should be provided to

pay expenses of the Recruitment and Screening Committees

for the Director of DRI and the Director of the Community

College Division. He recommended that $2500 be made avail-

able to each Committee from the Board of Regents Special

Projects Account.

Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

43. Approval of Purchase in Excess of $5000, UNR

President Miller reported that the following bids had been

received for the printing of a bulletin on Lincoln County

by the Mackay School of Mines:

A. Carlisle & Co. 2000 copies $9,004.12

Reno Printing 9,146.60

Silver State Press no bid

President Miller recommended that a contract be awarded to

A. Carlisle & Co. in the amount of $9004.12. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.

Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

Mr. Bilbray asked if it was necessary for the Board to

concern itself with purchases of this amount. Mr. Hug

reviewed the history which had precipitated the adoption

of this policy. Mr. Seeliger noted that this kind of

action does not take much time and does keep the Board


Meeting adjourned at 3:50 P.M.
