     State Auditor, is preparing a report.  The results of these
     studies will be turned over to the President in the near
     future.

 4.  Portrait - President Love

     Since it is the custom and the desire of the Regents of
     the University of Nevada to have portraits of its Presi-
     dents,

     Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that $600 be al-
     lotted for a portrait of President Love, and that artist

     Summer.

     In accord with previous action of the Regents, Mr. Ross
     reported that the lease by the Government for a Naval and
     Marine Training Center on the Campus has been presented for
     renewal and that it has been signed, as authorized in the
     meeting of July 23, 1951.  In accord with previous provision
     of the Regents, the renewal had been submitted to the At-
     torney General and had received his approval, before being
     signed by the Chairman of the Board of Regents.

 6.  Nevada Art Gallery

     Mr. Ross referred to the following letter received from the
     Nevada Art Gallery, and the matter was discussed generally.
     In the discussion, the Legislative Act (Chapter 8, Statutes
     1943) was read which directed the University to accept deeds
     to the land, for purposes of an Art Gallery.

                                            April 19, 1952

         To President Malcolm A. Love and
         The Regents of the University of Nevada
         Reno, Nevada

         Dear President and Regents:

         At their meeting on April 7, the Directors of the Nevada
         Art Gallery passed the following resolution looking
         toward closer and more spontaneous cooperation with the
         University:

               Proposal of Affiliation between Nevada Art
                    Gallery and University of Nevada

         To unify and broaden the cultural interests of the
         Nevada Art Galery and the University of Nevada, the
         University has been empowered by articles of incorpo-
         ration to select one representative on the Board of
         Directors of the Gallery.

         As a closer physical bond, land on University Terrace
         deeded by a score of donors for an Art Gallery has been
         transferred by the Gallery to the University as a west-
         ern extension of the Campus and ultimate Art Center.
         An unopened alley and portion of Nevada Street have been
         preserved by the City of Reno as a park thoroughfare
         leading from the Gallery Gardens.  Other land has been
         provisionally promised as has an art collection com-
         parable or superior to the Charles F. Cutts Foundation.

         The problem of obtaining a gallery building is directly
         associated with the planting and development of the
         Gallery Gardens as an invitation to gifts.  A plan of
         the building has long since been prepared and a land-
         scape map of the Gardens has been drawn.  A water system
         has been installed as a gift and hedge planting has been
         done by the City of Reno along the Orr Ditch.  Any delay
         in progress will entail loss.

         All expense has thus far been borne by the Nevada Art
         Gallery and will continue so to be borne except as the
         University may desire to share.  This will apply also
         to the Gallery building.  The raising of funds will also
         rest with the Nevada Art Gallery.

         However, the affiliation between the Nevada Art Gallery
         and the University of Nevada should provide close con-
         sultation on plans for construction and maintenance
         and possible financial cooperation.

         The ideal of the Gallery is to serve as a funnel of
         culture from the State to the University, and is in
         furtherance of the Will of Charles F. Cutts and the
         Court Order of Distribution of his estate; viz, that
         a Gallery and Art Museum be established "under the
         joint management and direction of the Nevada Art Gal-
         lery, Inc. and the Board of Regents of the University
         of Nevada".

         Cannot an early conference be arranged?

                         /s/ J. E. Church
                             President
                             Nevada Art Gallery

     Motion by Mr. Arentz carried unanimously that President
     Love write to the Nevada Art Gallery asking for a written
     report giving, in detail, operations of the Art Gallery to
     date, including finances, detailed long-range plans for
     the future, with possible expected sources of income.  Af-
     ter receiving the report, the joint responsibilities and
     authority of the two Boards will be given thorough study.

Reporters John Burns and Frank Johnson came into the meeting
and remained until noon.

 7.  Student Union Building

     Report #1, "Site Survey", was received from Ferris &
     Erskine, recommending the site at the north end of Manzanita
     Lake as providing "ample space for the construction of the
     building without the necessity for removing trees and other
     planting, as being readily available for utilities, and as
     being in the center of student activities on the Campus."

     Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that the recommenda-
     tion of the architect be accepted and that the site be
     chosen for the Student Union building.

     Motion by Mr. Arentz carried unanimously that a sum of money
     be appropriated from surplus funds in the University Re-
     volving Fund to take care of preliminary work necessary in
     the planning of the Student Union building, the amount and
     the work to be done to be determined by the architect and
     the President of the University.

 8.  Sheeketski Contract

     At 10:50 A.M. Mr. Dunseath, Deputy from the office of the
     Attorney General, came into the meeting, representing Mr.
     Mathews, who was unable to be present because of an injured
     leg.  The Regents had requested the conference to discuss
     proposed contract submitted by Mr. Furrh for Mr. Sheeketski
     (minutes of May 22, 1952) and the proposed contracts sub-
     mitted by the Attorney General, at the request of the Re-
     gents.  Thorough discussion followed, and,

     Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the Attorney
     General be asked to draw an amended agreement which would
     provide that earnings of Mr. Sheeketski from April 1, 1952
     through June 30, 1953 to be deducted from the payment to
     Mr. Sheeketski for the year ending June 30, 1953.  The
     agreement, when thus amended, is to be submitted to Mr.
     Sheeketski and his Attorney, Mr. Furrh, by the Executive
     Committee of the Regents.  If accepted by Mr. Sheeketski,
     the Chairman of the Board of Regents is hereby authorized
     to sign for the Regents.

     A further provision of the motion was that the amended
     agreement include, if possible, a statement that the Re-
     gents do not feel nor admit any legal obligation to settle
     the contract.  (The Attorney General, in letter of June 10,
     1952, advised that this not be included.)

     Mr. Ross thanked Mr. Dunseath, who left the meeting at this
     point.

 9.  Tonopah History

     Mr. Hardy presented for consideration the fact that a com-
     prehensive history of the Tonopah district had been pre-
     pared by Mr. Jay Carpenter, but that it had never been
     printed.  Since it is considered to have much merit,

     Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that the Director
     of the Mackay School of Mines be instructed to go ahead
     with the printing of the bulletin as a publication of the
     State Bureau of Mines, if there are sufficient funds in
     the State Bureau of Mines' appropriation.

         Peace Commission, and inspired him to write articles
         and books dealing with Peace and Peace Treaties, which
         have caused our people to think seriously on these
         things, and

         WHEREAS, his service as United State Representative to
