     ed (identified as Ref. 22 and filed with the permanent

     minutes).



     Chancellor Humphrey discussed the Architect's estimate for

     the project, noting that although it was highly desirable

     that the building be completed in the initial construction,

     it would be bid with additive alternatives in the event bids

     exceeded the construction budget of $169,500.  He recommend-

     ed approval of the plans as submitted.

     carried without dissent.

     identified as Ref. 3 and filed with permanent minutes.)

     Steninger, carried without dissent.

     College at a reduced fee of $3 per credit hour.  Credit may

     be earned.  The College reserves the right to exclude such

     students if there is not adequate space in the class.



     Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, noting that such a

     policy is presently in effect at both UNR and UNLV; however,

     the reduced fee is available only for audit purposes.

     Mc Dermott, carried without dissent.

          owned improvements as specified in the reference;



     (2)  That the Board agree to absolve the government of any

          restoration resulting from the removal of the quonset

     and Welfare of the DRI's application for BLM property in

     Reno.  (HEW letter identified as Ref. 12A and filed with the

     permanent minutes.)



     Dr. Ward noted that Mr. Mel Summers, Assistant Regional

     Director for Surplus Property Utilization had recommended

     adoption of a resolution by the Board of Regents concerning

     phasing out of the DRI Stead facilities in favor of new

     facilities to be constructed on the BLM property.



     Chancellor Humphrey recommended adoption of the following

     resolution:



                       RESOLUTION #72-4



     WHEREAS, on June 28, 1968, the Department of Health,

     Education and Welfare conveyed land and buildings at the

     former Stead Air Force Base to the University of Nevada; and



     WHEREAS, a portion of this property was specifically for the

     use of the Desert Research Institute; and



     WHEREAS, the Desert Research Institute has submitted a

     petition application, N-5370, to the Bureau of Land

     Management, U. S. Department of the Interior, for the

     purpose of establishing operational facilities for the

     Desert Research Institute; and



     WHEREAS, the Board of Regents, University of Nevada, does

     not intend to establish or maintain duplicate facilities for

     the Desert Research Institute;



     NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that if the application to

     the Bureau of Land Management is acted upon favorably and

     the requested lands are patented to the Board of Regents,

     and when facilities are constructed on the Bureau of Land

     Management property for the use of the Desert Research

     Institute, then, as the Stead facilities are abandoned by

     the Desert Research Institute, the Board of Regents shall

     either apply to the Department of Health, Education and

     Welfare for alternate educational uses for these facilities,

     or agrees to revert title to the land and buildings used by

     the Desert Research Institute to the Department of Health,

     Education and Welfare.



     Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr.

     Bilbray, carried without dissent.



14.  Request for Special Funds



     President Ward recalled that the Board of Regents had estab-

     lished the UNS Environmental Studies Program and instructed

     that a Director be appointed by DRI to coordinate, where

     possible, the environmental programs of the University of

     Nevada System.  He noted that a committee has been appointed

     to select a Director and has already expended the $500 allo-

     cated for expenses.  He requested an additional $2,500 be

     provided from the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund to

     provide additional operating and travel money for the

     committee.  Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



     Mr. Bilbray moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr.

     Steninger, carried without dissent.



15.  Foreign Travel Report, DRI



     In accordance with the Board's policy on foreign travel,

     President Ward reported the following:



     (1)  Dr. Jon Bilbao will be participating in the Basque

          Studies Summer Session in Spain from June 19 to August

          2.  His transportation and support for this period will

          be paid from UNR Basque Studies Program.  Dr. Bilbao

          will remain in Spain and France, doing research in the

          Basque Country until September 15.  Financial support

          for this period will be from personal funds.



     (2)  Dr. William A. Douglass had planned to be in Spain from

          May 24, 1972 through August 5, 1972 directing Basque

          Studies Summer Session for UNR.  However, because of

          ill health he will probably not participate in this

          program.  He will conduct field research from mid-

          August, 1972 to September, 1973 in Italy with funds

          for travel and expenses coming from his NIH Career

          Development Grant.



16.  Campus Parking and Traffic Regulations, UNLV



     President Zorn presented proposed revisions to the Campus

     parking and traffic regulations with his recommendation for

     approval.  (Revisions contained in Ref. 16 and filed in the

     permanent minutes.)  Chancellor Humphrey recommended approv-

     al effective July 1, 1972.



     Concern was expressed over the wording of Section III,

     Paragraph 10, Washing of Vehicles, which stated "Washing

     of vehicles on grounds, planted areas and streets is

     prohibited."



     Mr. Bilbray moved approval of the revisions as proposed with

     the amendment to Section III, Paragraph 10, to read:  "Wash-

     ing of vehicles is prohibited except in designated areas."

     Motion seconded by Mr. Guild, carried without dissent.



17.  Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5,000, UNLV



     A.  President Zorn reported that bids were opened May 19,

         1972 for the purchase of four refuse compactors:



         Automatic Refuse Systems, Inc., St. Clair Shores,

             Michigan                                     $ 8,116

         Aiello and Associates, Phoenix, Arizona            9,646

         Lombard Corporation, Youngstown, Ohio             11,628



         The bid of Automatic Refuse Systems, Inc., does not meet

         specifications.  The specifications call for compaction

         ratio of 10:1 and a compation force of 16,000 lbs.  The

         equipment bid by Automatic Refuse Systems has a compac-

         tion ratio of 8:1 and a compaction force of 4,500 lbs.



         President Zorn recommended that a 5% in-state preference

         be applied to bid of Environmental Control of Nevada,

         making their bid equivalent to $9,526.60, which then

         becomes the low bid.



         Chancellor Humphrey concurred and recommended award to

         Environmental Control of Nevada in amount of $10,028.



         Mr. Bilbray moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr.

         Steninger, carried without dissent.



     B.  President Zorn reported that bids were opened May 22,

         1972 for printing of the proceedings of the Tritium

         Symposium held at UNLV.  One bid received from Messenger

         Graphics as bid.  Costs of publishing the proceedings

         were included in the charge assessed the conference

         maintenance agreement.



         President Zorn recommended approval of the bid of

         Motorola C & E, Inc.  Chancellor Humphrey agreed.



         Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr.

         Bilbray, carried without dissent.

     President Ward presented a projected financial plan for DRI

     for fiscal year 1972-73 (plan identified as Ref. 15 and

     filed with the permanent minutes).  Chancellor Humphrey

     recommended approval.



     Mr. Mc Dermott moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr.

     Guild, carried without dissent.



23.  UNS Code



     Chancellor Humphrey recalled that at the May meeting, the

     Board made certain revisions to the Code as recommended by

     Officers of the University.  An amended document was then

     distributed.  As indicated in the amended document, Section

     4.9 and Section 4.11 were not adopted but were referred to

     General Counsel for revision and further consideration at

     this meeting.



     Mr. Hug presented his recommendation as contained in Ref. 23

     and filed with the permanent minutes and further revisions

     were made to the proposed Code.  (Complete transcript of

     actions revising the Code are filed in permanent minutes.)



     (Note to the Minutes:  An amended document reflecting

     revisions approved above was distributed to the Presidents

     and Faculty Senate Chairmen and to the Board of Regents and

     Counsel under date of June 13, 1972.)



     It was agreed that the amended document would be returned

     to the July meeting for final adoption by the Board.



24.  Employee Fidelity Insurance



     Chancellor Humphrey reported that the UNS Hartford Accident

     and Indemnity Policy covering the period May 1, 1969 through

     May 1, 1972 is currently being reviewed for renewal.  Al-

     though several amendments were made to the policy as organi-

     zation changes occurred during the past three years, the

     original policy of determining bonding amount according to

     the authority accompanying the position was maintained.



     Chancellor Humphrey noted the Internal Auditor had recom-

     mended a change in the approach to bonding employees based

     on internal control and the position's direct responsi-

     bility and access to UNS funds.  He endorsed that concept

     and recommended that the Board approve the following plan:



         $100,000 blanket position bond with excess coverage for

         20 employees at $150,000 with no deductible.  Inside

         robbery - $10,000 for Reno, $10,000 for Las Vegas and

         $1,000 at Elko with no deductible and excess of $40,000

         at Reno and Las Vegas for six days of registration.

         Outside robbery - amounts to $7,995 with no deductibles.



     Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr. Guild,

     carried without dissent.



25.  Division of Host Funds



     Chancellor Humphrey recalled that for the 1971-72 fiscal

     year, the Board approved division of host funds of $2,300

     each from the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund.  These

     accounts are under the signature authority of each President

     for the benefit of units within his Division.



     Chancellor Humphrey recommended that sufficient funds be

     transferred as of July 1, 1972 from the Board of Regents

     Special Projects Fund to provide $2,300 to each of the four

     Divisions for 1972-73.  The actual amounts to be transferred

     will be determined by the June 30 closing balances in the

     existing accounts.



     Chancellor Humphrey also reported that President Miller had

     requested authorization to continue a host account for the

     School of Medical Sciences in the amount of $1,000 for 1972-

     73.  Funds will come from non-appropriated monies available

     to the School through various gifts.



     Mr. Steninger moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr. Guild,

     carried without dissent.



26.  Differentials for "A" or 12 Month Contracts



     Chancellor Humphrey recalled that earlier this year the

     Faculty Senate representatives proposed that the present 20%

     differential between academic year and fiscal year contracts

     be changed to 27%.  The Board of Regents adopted the recom-

     mendation this "...be taken under advisement until later

     in the year at which time a recommendation will be made for

     individual review of differential rates to become effective

     1973-74."



     Chancellor Humphrey recommended that approval be given to a

     plan of study to resolve this problem and improve the equity

     of the Salary Administration Program.  He suggested that in

     order to make specific recommendations this Fall for 1973-75

     implementation, a great deal of work needs to be done within

     a common frame of reference.



     For purposes of the study, Chancellor Humphrey recommended

     that all Professional staff positions be placed in one of

     the following four catagories:



         A.  Academic Year appointment;

         B.  Academic Year appointments with a specified supple-

             ment for time worked beyond the academic year;

         C.  Management Review Group; or

         D.  Regents' Review Group



     Group A would include all Professionals whose responsibili-

     ties are for the academic year and are in instruction and

     research.



     Group B would include those Professionals not in groups C or

     D whose responsibilities are for the academic year plus

     additional periods of time as determined for each individ-

     ual's academic year contract by the number of working days

     in the academic year and multiplying the resulting quotient

     by the number of excess days included in the individual's

     assignment.



     Group C would consist of two sub-groups as follows:



         (1)  Administrators, as defined in the Code, except
              those assigned to Group D; and



         (2)  All other Professionals who are not Administrators

              and whose primary responsibility is not in instruc-

              tion and Departmental research.



     Group D would include the Officers of the University (i.

     e., Presidents and Chancellor), Vice Presidents, Deans and

     any Professional paid in excess of the top stated step in

     the salary schedule.



     Chancellor Humphrey pointed out this plan assumes group A

     and group B salaries would be determined in accordance

     with an approved salary schedule and group C and group D

     salaries would be individually determined according to the

     specific assignment and the effectiveness of the incumbent.



     Chancellor Humphrey proposed that authorization be granted

     to proceed with this study and that the two academic Vice

     Presidents serve as UNR and UNLV coordinators, assisted by

     the Division non-academic personnel officers and the Presi-

     dents of CCD and DRI serve as coordinators for their respec-

     tive Divisions.  A consultant, Mr. John Hall, Assistant

     Director of Personnel, University of California, will be

     retained to coordinate the program System-wide.



     Mr. Steninger moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr. Guild,

     carried without dissent.



27.  Special Funding



     Chancellor Humphrey requested allocation of $17,900 from the

     Board of Regents Special Projects Fund for the following

     purposes:



         $12,000 for legal services during 1972-73.



         $3,500 for salary administration review (as detailed in

         item 26 above).



         $2,400 for six months' consultation by Mrs. Edna Brigham

         in fund raising by Foundation Grants.



     Mrs. Knudtsen moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr.

     Steninger, carried without dissent.



28.  Capital Improvement Program Request for Consideration by

     1973 Legislature



     Chancellor Humphrey recalled that the Board had deferred

     action at the May meeting to allow for presentation of al-

     ternative plans for financing a capital improvement program

     request to be submitted to the State Legislature for the

     1973-75 Session.  In accordance with that request, alterna-

     tives had been developed and were presented by Mr. David

     Wilkins.  (Alternatives detailed in Ref. 28, filed with the

     permanent minutes.)



     Following discussion, Mr. Steninger moved approval of

     Alternative #1, the proposal presented to the Board at the

     May meeting.  Motion seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen.



The meeting adjourned for lunch at 12:00 noon and reconvened at

1:45 P.M. at which time Mr. Guild moved to table the above motion

until information concerning the biennial budget request had been

presented.  Motion to table seconded by Mr. Steninger, carried

without dissent.



29.  Construction Bid Opening



     Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened May 26, 1972 for the

     demolition and rebuilding of the present Tram.  One bid was

     received from Nevada Paving, Inc., for $13,468.



     President Miller recommended award to Nevada Paving in the

     amount of the bid.  Funds are available from the Evans Walk

     Fund ($3,500) and the Contingency Fund ($10,000).  Chancel-

     lor Humphrey recommended approval.



     Mr. Guild moved approval.  Motion seconded by Mr. Morris,

     carried without dissent.



30.  Quarterly Report of Disciplinary Cases, UNLV



     In accordance with the Rules of Disciplinary Procedures,

     President Zorn filed a report for the period January 1

     through May 31, 1972.  (Report identified as Ref. 32 and

     filed with permanent minutes.)



31.  1973-75 Biennial Budget Request



     Chancellor Humphrey commented on the draft document which

     had been enclosed with the agenda in an attempt to facili-

     tate review and to develop a common frame of reference for

     discussion so direction might be given for further develop-

     ment of a biennial budget request.  (Draft document identi-

     fied as Ref. 29A and filed in Chancellor's Office).



     Mr. Donald Jessup, Director of Institutional Studies and

     Budget reviewed the draft document and explained the methods

     used to arrive at tentative budget request of $75,632,872

     for the 1973-75 biennium.



     Discussion was also held concerning the proposed 1973-75

     faculty compensation goal, with explanations of the differ-

     ences between the goal recommended by the faculty and that

     recommended by the officers.  Details of the proposal were

     contained in Ref. 29B, also filed in the Chancellor's Of-

     fice.



     Mr. Steninger moved that officers' recommendation on 1973-75

     salary goal be approved.  Motion seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen,

     failed, with Mr. Guild and Mr. Jacobsen opposing.



     (Note to Minutes:  Only five Regents were present at this

     point.  Board of Regents By-Laws require five affirmative

     votes to carry a motion.)



     It was agreed that action on the salary goal would be re-

     quested at the July meeting at the time that action on the

     biennial budget would be requested.  Alternatives showing

     the amount of salary money required for either of the two

     proposals will be included.



Discussion resumed on #28, Capital Improvement Program Request.



     Mr. Morris moved adoption of Alternative #3.  Motion second-

     ed by Mr. Guild, carried without dissent.



     Alternative #3 provides for following capital improvement

     projects:
