mitted with the agenda and filed with the permanent minutes)

was recommended.

carried without dissent.



3. Alpha Epsilon Pi



Acting President Anderson endorsed a request from the Office

of Student Services that Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity be au-

thorized to establish a colony at the University of Nevada,

preparatory to establishing a chapter, and that it be recog-

nized as approved housing. He noted that there are no dis-

criminatory provisions in the fraternity's constitution.

Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Rev. Kohn,

carried without dissent.



4. Proposed Cornerstone Ceremony for Recreation Building, UNR



Acting President Anderson reported that the Centennial

Committee had proposed that the cornerstone for the new

Recreation building (Physical Education Complex) be placed

on Saturday, September 14, 1974, as the opening Centennial

Year ceremony. He recommended, and Chancellor Humphrey

concurred, that the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons

be requested to place the cornerstone on that date in co-

operation with the Centennial Committee and that the pro-

gram be the responsibility of the Centennial Committee.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris,

carried without dissent.



5. Proposed Division of Veterinary Medicine



Acting President Anderson presented, with his endorsement,

a proposal from the Max C. Fleischmann College of Agricul-

ture for the establishment of a Division of Veterinary

Medicine to replace the present section of Veterinary Sci-

ence Division.



In support of this proposal, a letter from Dean Dale Bohmont

to Dr. Anderson was included with the agenda (identified as

Ref. 5 and filed with permament minutes). An additional

statement in support of the proposal was made by Dean

Bohmont.



In accordance with the Board's policy on the addition of

new programs and Departments, this proposal will be sub-

mitted for action at the July meeting.



6. Proposal for Flammable Liquids and Gases Fire Control

Academy, UNR



Acting President Anderson submitted a Phase I proposal for

a Flammable Liquids and Gases Fire Control Academy. The

program would be under the direction of General University

Extension and consists mainly of short workshop programs

and is intended to be largely self-supporting to start,

but will require appropriated monies in the future. Dr.

Anderson stated that the discussions with CCD officials

indicate that the program does not conflict with their

certificate or associate degree programs. (Phase I pro-

posal on file in Chancellor's Office.)



Acting President Anderson and Chancellor Humphrey recom-

mended approval of the Phase I proposal and authorization

to proceed to Phase II.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi,

carried without dissent.



7. Funds for Medical School Admissions Committee Travel



Acting President Anderson recalled that in September, 1973

the Board had allocated $2525 from the Board of Regents

Special Projects Account to provide travel funds for the

Admissions Committee of the School of Medical Sciences.

He requested that this assistance be continued in 1974-75

by an allocation of $2760 from the Board of Regents Special

Projects Account for this purpose. Chancellor Humphrey

recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



8. Request for Increase in Laboratory Fees, UNR



Acting President Anderson requested approval of the follow-

ing fee schedule for laboratory courses taught in the

Medical Technology Program, noting that actual costs have

exceeded the estimates upon which the present fees were

established in 1973. He noted also that changes in cur-

riculum, increased costs and additional items needed for

the courses were cited as additional justification for

the increases.



Present Proposed

Fee Fee Increase



MEDS 105 Urinalysis $10 $25 $15

MEDS 303 Hematology 10 50 40

MEDS 304 Immunohematology 15 50 35

MEDS 306 Clinical Microbiology 10 55 45

MEDS 307 Microbiology 10 55 45

MEDS 409 Clinical Chemistry 15 50 35



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective Fall

semester 1974. In response to an expression of concern

over the increasing cost of special and laboratory fees,

Chancellor Humphrey stated that it would be appropriate

to have a full review of all special fees when it is

known what the appropriation is for 1975-77.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval, with the understanding that

the review referred to by Chancellor Humphrey would be

conducted. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris, carried without

dissent.



9. Assessment of Special Fees, UNR



A. Acting President Anderson requested the assessment of a

$10 fee for each of the following courses in Speech

Pathology to provide special test material and audio

and video tapes used by the students in the classes:



SPA 359 Assessment of Communication Disorders

SPA 360 Methods of Clinical Management

SPA 462 Practicum in Speech Pathology

SPA --- Externship in Speech Pathology and Audiology

(undergraduate or graduate)



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective

Fall, 1974.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



B. Acting President Anderson requested a new laboratory fee

of $10 for student per course to be assessed to students

in Biochemistry 271 and Biochemistry 272, to cover the

cost of consumable biologicals, chemicals, glassware and

supplies.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective

Fall, 1974.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Morris, carried without dissent.



10. Increase in Surcharge to Medical Students, UNR



Acting President Anderson noted that resident students in

the School of Medical Sciences pay the regular registration

fee of $130 per semester, plus a surcharge of $370, or a

total of $500. Non-resident students pay this $500, plus

regular tuition of $600, plus a surcharge of $250, or a

total of $1350 per semester. These students also pay fees

assessed other undergraduate students (i. e., capital im-

provement fee, ASUN fee, Health Service fee, and ICA fee).

The surcharge is dedicated to the School of Medical Sci-

ences.



Dr. Anderson recommended an increase of $168 (to $538) in

the registration surcharge, and an increase of $50 (to

$300) in the tuition surcharge, effective Fall, 1974. Chan-

cellor Humphrey concurred, noting that further adjustments,

to be effective Fall, 1975, are proposed in the biennial

budget request.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



11. Fleischmann Loan Account



Acting President Anderson recalled that in 1959 the Max C.

Fleischmann Foundation established scholarships for the

College of Agriculture and the School of Home Economics,

with the provision that any unexpended funds would be re-

turned and used as a loan account for previous Fleischmann

scholarship recipients. In 1970, after the termination

of the scholarship program, and with the approval of the

Foundation, these funds were used for loans to any Agri-

cultural or Home Economics students even though they were

not previous scholarship recipients.



Dr. Anderson noted that there is presently a balance of

$8766.25 remaining in this account and the College of

Agriculture has requested, and the Foundation of trustees

have concurred, that these funds be designated as a scholar-

ship endowment and divided equally between the College of

Agriculture and School of Home Economics.



Acting President Anderson and Chancellor Humphrey endorsed

this proposal by the College and recommended approval by

the Board.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



12. Award of Contract for Well, S-Bar-S Ranch



Acting President Anderson reported that bids were opened

May 21, 1974 for an 8", 300' domestic well at the S-Bar-S

Ranch. A single bid was received, from Robertson Engineer-

ing and Drill, at a price of $11,360. Funds are available,

he stated, from the College of Agriculture Marye Helen

Thomas trust account for S-Bar-S.



Acting President Anderson and Chancellor Humphrey recommend-

ed the contract be awarded to Robertson Engineering and

Drilling for $11,360.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi,

carried without dissent.



13. Approval of Fund Transfers, UNR



Acting President Anderson requested approval of the follow-

ing transfers of funds from the Contingency Reserve:



#481 $1400 to the Learning and Resource Center to cover

operating expenditures for the balance of the fiscal

claims for trips to participating schools by UNR

faculty members.



#517 $601.68 to the Library to provide salary for a one

month replacement in the Circulation Department.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



14. Approval of Revision to Estimative Budget, UNR



Acting President Anderson requested approval of the fol-

lowing revision to the estimative budget for 1974-75 for

Women's Athletics, to reflect the additional revenue to

be received from the increase in the student fee:



Women's Athletics

15. Host Account for School of Medical Sciences, UNR



Acting President Anderson requested that a $1500 host ac-

count be authorized for the School of Medical Sciences for

1974-75 with $1000 to come from unrestricted gifts to the

Medical School and the remaining $500 to come from the

National Fund for Medical Education grant. Chancellor

Humphrey recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



16. Food Service Contract and Dining Rates, UNR



A. Vice President Pine recalled that in 1973, UNR con-

tracted with Professional Food Management (PFM) to

operate Reno Campus food services. The contract

could not be put into effect due to legal action

against the University initiated by the State of Nevada

Employees Association.



The Nevada Supreme Court has now ruled in favor of the

University and the PFM contract has been renegotiated,

due to the elapsed time, and a new contract is recom-

mended with the following contractual rate and result-

ing student rates (the rate to the student must be

higher than the contractual rate to permit the Univer-

sity to cover capital improvement debt service and

building utilities).



PFM Student Chg

108 days.



Mr. Pine noted that the prices submitted by PFM are

15$ above the 1973 proposal; however, wholesale food

prices have increased 23% since that time.



Acting President Anderson and Chancellor Humphrey

recommended approval of the contract, effective August

12, 1974, and of the dining rates, effective for the

Fall semester, 1974.



Mr. Steninger asked if the food service to be provided

by PFM would provide better service at less cost to

the students than could be provided by the University

under its previous arrangement. Mr. Pine stated that

it would and that was the reason for negotiating the

contract originally.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



B. Acting President Anderson reported that food service

for the Stead Dining Commons will continue to be pro-

vided through Continuing Education Division of General

University Extension. He requested the following prices

be approved, effective July 1, 1974:



Present Proposed



Breakfast $1.10 $1.20

Lunch 1.40 1.50

Dinner 1.70 1.90



Acting President Anderson and Chancellor Humphrey

recommended approval.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



17. Sale of University Property



Vice President Pine reported that one oral bid was received

in response to the invitation to bid for the sale of Uni-

versity-owned property at 97 Bell Street, Reno, property

which had been received as part of the Maud F. Dimmick Es-

tate. The oral bid was submitted by Amy J. Gulling and was

for $25,000 with a deposit of $2500. The court appraisal of

the property established its value at $26,700.



Mr. Pine requested approval of the sale of the property to

Mrs. Gulling for the bid submitted. Acting President

Anderson concurred.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, noting that if

the property were now to be sold through a broker, the

commission would further reduce the net proceeds to the

University. He also noted that this sale requires approval

of the Governor.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris,

carried without dissent.



Miss Thompson entered the meeting at 10:45 A.M.



18. Proposed Program in Respiratory Therapy, CCD



President Donnelly recalled that in May the Board had re-

viewed a proposal for a program in Respiratory Therapy to

be offered by Western Nevada Community College, effective

Fall, 1974. A copy of the proposal was included with the

May agenda and is on file in the Chancellor's Office.

President Donnelly and Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, carried without dissent.



Rev. Kohn stated that he believed the program should be

located in Clark County, rather than Western Nevada, and

cited letters from the southern Nevada hospitals in

support of his statement. He stated that the letters

contended that a request had been made a number of years

ago to UNLV for such a program, but the request had not

been approved.



President Donnelly stated that it was quite probable that

such a request had been made to UNLV, that UNLV would ap-

propriately have responded that it was a program more within

the mission of the Community College Division and would have

declined to offer it. Dean Dixon agreed that this was prob-

ably the basis for the statement by the hospital.



President Donnelly also explained the procedure followed by

CCD in developing new programs, particularly the use of cur-

ricular advisory committees. He stated that he would be

happy to pursue the interest in the possibility of begin-

ning this program in Clark County with the appropriate

people in that area.



Mr. Morris moved that Administration of UNLV and CCD form

an advisory committee to investigate the feasibility of

establishing a respiratory therapy program in southern

Nevada. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without

dissent.



It was agreed that a report would be brought back to the

Board at the October meeting.



19. Proposal for Program in Cosmetology, WNCC



President Donnelly presented a proposal by Western Nevada

Community College for an Applied Science Degree and Certi-

ficate of Achievement Program in Cosmetology. Copy of

proposal on file in Chancellor's Office.



President Donnelly noted that approval was given to the

program by the Board of Regents upon adoption of the State

Plan for Community Colleges; however the program was not

implemented at that time. The program, based on an identi-

fied need to provide Nevada with registered cosmetologists,

was developed by proprietary schools of cosmetology in

Reno and Sparks and by WNCC and has been approved by the

Nevada State Board of Cosmetology.



Dr. Donnelly stated that WNCC will certify the program

curriculum taught by the schools of cosmetology, will

enroll students in the program, and will provide general

education courses. Instructors and facilities of the

schools of cosmetology will be used for the cosmetology

courses. This cooperative program will not require any

major additional expenditures by WNCC.



Final action will be requested in July.



20. Right-of-Way, CCCC



President Donnelly reported that Nevada Power Company has

requested a right-of-way, 10' wide, located near the center

of the CCCC site, between the east and west property lines

and running north to the transformers at the southwest cor-

ner of the building. The right-of-way will allow for the

installation of an underground electric conduit system at

the Campus in North Las Vegas.



President Donnelly recommended approval. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred, with the understanding that the grant

document will be reviewed and approved by Counsel prior

to execution.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi,

carried without dissent.



21. Confirmation of Bid Award, NNCC



President Donnelly reported that bids were opened by the

State Public Works Board for the Landscape Sprinkler System

at NNCC, and the bid results were submitted to the Board of

Regents by mail ballot on May 23, 1974. 9 affirmative re-

sponses were received and the State Public Works Board was

informed that the Board concurred in the award of a contract

to George Warren Lawn Sprinkler Company for a total of

$42,201.



President Donnelly and Chancellor Humphrey recommended

confirmation of the action taken as a result of the mail

ballot.



Dr. Anderson moved approval. Motion seconded by Rev. Kohn,

carried without dissent.



22. Culinary Arts Kitchen Project, CCCC



President Donnelly reported that bids will be opened June

27, 1974, for remodeling of facilities at 310 Wall Street,

Las Vegas, for use as a culinary arts kitchen for Clark

County Community College. He reviewed the project cost

and funding sources, as approved by the Board on March 29,

1974, and recommended that the bids be reviewed and a rec-

ommendation submitted to the Board by mail. Chancellor

Humphrey concurred.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



23. Desert Biology Laboratory, Boulder City



President Ward reported that bids were opened May 13, 1974

for construction of the Desert Biology Laboratory in Boulder

City. He submitted a bid tally sheet with the agenda (iden-

tified as Ref. 23 and filed with permament minutes), re-

flecting the low base bid by Butler Enterprises of $749,896

(with all additive alternates, a total bid of $929,421).

The construction budget, including off-site development,

solar energizing, contingency reserve, was $527,000; the

project budget was $648,000.



Dr. Ward noted that the Max C. Fleischmann Foundation, in

making a grant of $450,000 for this project, specified a

deadline of June 1, 1974, for the award of a construction

contract. He reported that the Foundation trustees have

now extended this deadline until May 1, 1975. Butler

Enteprises had indicated their willingness to hold their

bid open for an additional 30 days. President Ward and

Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the bid be held,

but that if additional funds cannot be secured by July 1,

1974, to insure construction in conformity with the present

approved plans, the bids be rejected and the project be

redesigned and returned to the Board for consideration.



Mr. Morris moved that the Chancellor's Office send a re-

quest to Nevada's Congressional delegation for introduction

of a special supplemental bill for $750,000 to assist in

construction of a Research Laboratory in Boulder City.

Motion seconded by Dr. Anderson. In response to a ques-

tion by Regent Jacobsen, Dr. Ward responded that this

motion was satisfactory and that "he heartily recommended

it." Motion passed without dissent.



24. Environmental Protection Agency



Dean Dixon recalled that in 1963 the Legislature authorized

the issuance of University revenue bonds for the construc-

tion at UNLV of buildings for the Federal agency now called

the Environmental Protection Agency. These bonds are

serviced from the rent paid by EPA and that agency has a

10-year lease (to June 30, 1975) with options to renew for

two 5-year periods (i. e., until June 30, 1985).



Dean Dixon reported that EPA is now interested in addi-

tional space at UNLV, as noted in a letter from President

Baepler to Chancellor Humphrey included with the agenda

(identified as Ref. 24 and filed with the permanent min-

utes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that authorization to

continue negotiations with EPA representatives be granted

and a report be made to the Board in the Fall.



Dr. Lombardi moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr. Morris,

carried without dissent.



25. Preliminary Report of Law School Study, UNLV



Dean Dixon noted the inclusion with the agenda of a memoran-

dum from Willard H. Pedrick, Dean, College of Law, Arizona

State University, who is the Director of the UNLV feasibil-

ity study which is to be presented in draft form to the

July meeting of the Board. Preliminary budget information

was contained in the memorandum and was submitted for the

Board's information (identifed as Ref. 25 and filed with

permanent minutes).



Mr. Morris suggested consideration be given to a change in

the statutes and the objectives of the Nevada Southern Land

Foundation whereby it would be used to raise endowment

funds for the Law School. It was the consensus that this

should be considered and discussed with the Foundation.



26. Approval of Fund Transfers, UNLV



Dean Dixon requested approval of the following transfers of

funds from the Contingency Reserve:



#74-142 $1000 to the Dean's Office, College of Education,

to provide funds in operating to help equip areas

in the new Education building.



#74-144 $800 to the Psychology Department to provide ad-

ditional operating funds for the remainder of the

fiscal year.



#74-154 $1000 to Library to provide sufficient funds in

operating for the remainder of the fiscal year.



#74-155 $5106 to Extended Day Supplement to cover part-

time instructor salaries for the Spring semester.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Miss Thompson moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr.

Anderson, carried without dissent.



27. Bid Openings, Campus Improvement Projects, UNLV



Dean Dixon reported the following bids received on June 17

for the landscaping of the area west of Frazier Hall:



Home Garden Center, Las Vegas $11,585.45

Jaramillo Landscaping & Sprinkler,

Las Vegas 12,158.18

Boulder Hi-Way Nursery, Las Vegas 12,847.16



Dean Dixon recommended approval of the bid of Home Garden

Center for $11,585.45. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Dean Dixon also reported the following bids received on

June 18 for the installation of sewer and water lines

connecting the main lines on Maryland Parkway to give

service to the L. D. S. Institute and the Center for

Religion, Life and Peace:



Longley Construction Co., Las Vegas $31,440

Tab Construction, Inc., Las Vegas 38,710

Burdick Contractors, Inc., Las Vegas 42,840

Brinton, Inc., Las Vegas 48,900



Dean Dixon recommended approval of the bid of Longley

Construction Co. for $331,440. Chancellor Humphrey con-

curred.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Rev. Kohn,

carried without dissent.



28. Request for Rights-of-Way, UNLV



Dean Dixon requested approval of rights-of-way across UNLV

to Las Vegas Valley Water District, Clark Sanitation Depart-

ment and Southwest Gas to allow for service to the L. D. S.

Institute and to the Center for Life, Religion and Peace.

A map reflecting the route of the rights-of-way was pre-

sented by Mr. Westfall. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Rev. Kohn,

carried without dissent.



29. Recommendations Concerning Residence Halls



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in May, a report concern-

ing the residence halls had been submitted and suggestions

proposed for implementation in 1974-75 on an experimental

basis to determine if improvement in living conditions re-

sulted. The Board directed that this report be referred

back to the Administration for review and discussion and

action be scheduled for June.



Chancellor Humphrey reported that review has not been

completed and requested that this item be postponed until

July.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Rev. Kohn,

carried without dissent.



30. Moving Allowances



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that since 1971, from $15,000

to $22,000 per year has been made available to the Divisions

to pay moving allowances stipends for new faculty. The

amount paid a new faculty member has varied; however, aver-

aging between $100 and $150. Payment of up to $500 could

be made in extraordinary cases with Board approval required

for payments in excess of $500. Dr. Humphrey explained

that UNLV followed a procedure of waiting until Fall when

all faculty had reported and then dividing the available

money, adjusted by distance moved. UNR paid $100 for the

first 1000 miles, plus 3 cents per mile over 1000 miles,

provided funds were available when figured in the Fall.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that although the employment

market has changed, it is believed that a moving allowance

for new faculty is still desirable and recommended that

the specific amount of $125, plus 5 cents per mile for

miles in excess of 1000, be authorized for each new faculty

member, to be paid upon his first day of employment. He

further recommended that $20,000 be allocated from the Board

of Regents Special Projects Fund to a central account for

this purpose. Payment of an amount greater than that allow-

ed above may be paid, with the Board's approval, from Di-

visional discretionary funds.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Miss

Thompson, carried without dissent.



31. Approval of Fund Transfers



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the following

transfer from the Contingency Reserve in System Administra-

tion:



#16 $18,446 to operating to purchase equipment and meet

operating expenses for balance of the year. (A total

of $41,450 in salary savings has been transferred to

the Contingency Reserve and $23,004 will revert to the

State June 30 as a result of revenue from a Federal

grant which was received but had not been anticipated.

This reversion honors an agreement made with the State

Department of Administration when the appropriation

was made for 1973-74.)



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Mr.

Steninger, carried without dissent.



32. Request for Easement, CCCC



President Donnelly reported that Central Telephone Company

has requested a 5' easement along the easterly property

line extending south from Gowan Road to Colton Street. He

recommended that the easement be granted for underground

installation of telephone service for the CCCC Campus.

Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Mr. Morris moved approval. Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi,

carried without dissent.



33. Medical Examination for Admission



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in March the Board re-

quested Counsel Hug to review the University's policy re-

quiring a medical examination for admission. Dr. Humphrey

noted that Mr. Hug's response was included with the agenda,

commenting that a recommendation from the officers will be

submitted at the July meeting and action will be requested.



The meeting adjourned for lunch and reconvened at 1:50 P.M. Mr.

Buchanan entered the meeting at this time.



34. Capital Improvement Program, 1975-79



A draft of the Capital Improvement Request for considera-

tion by the 1975 Legislature was presented by Mr. Harry

Wood, System Architect/Facility Planner. Discussion of

the document revealed concerns about the placement on the

priority schedule of the proposed College of Law building

for Las Vegas.



Mr. Morris moved that no action be taken on the capital

improvement request until the July meeting and requested

that the Administration develop alternatives to the pri-

ority list, putting the Law School in a lower priority in

a tentative category. Motion seconded by Mr. Steninger.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Administration be

instructed to develop alternative lists for consideration

by the Board; e. g., (1) one list on the assumption that

the Law School would not be approved; (2) if the Law School

is approved and given the priority presently reflected in

the draft document; and (3) if the Law School is approved

and given another priority.



Mr. Morris withdrew his motion and substituted the Chan-

cellor's recommendation. Substituted motion was seconded

by Miss Thompson, carried with Mr. Buchanan and Rev. Kohn

opposing.



Mr. Morris moved to include as a 4th alternative the in-

clusion of the entire cost of the Law School operating and

capital improvement budgets in a special bill to the Legis-

lature. Motion seconded by Miss Thompson, carried with Mr.

Buchanan and Rev. Kohn opposing.



35. Grants-in-Aid Allocations for 1974-75 and Policy Revision



Acting President Anderson reviewed the NRS provision and

the Board's policy concerning grants-in-aid for tuition

and registration fee and allocation of such grants-in-aid.

He made the following recommendations:



(1) That the provisions for allocation of 15% of the total

grants-in-aid available to foreign students be deleted,

noting that through a misunderstanding at UNR, only 15

grants-in-aid have been awarded, rather than 15%.



(2) For 1974-75 the 201 grants-in-aid available to UNR be

distributed as follows:



Intercollegiate Athletics 100

Music 46

All Other (including scholarship recognition

and foreign students) 55

Total 201



(3) That 40 grants-in-aid be approved for Nevada resident

Indians.



(4) That until rescinded by the Board of Regents, the

number recommended for 1974-75 for Intercollegiate

Athletics (100) and Music (46) continue at that level

and any increase in number due to an increase in the

base be allocated to the "Other" category.



Chancellor Humphrey concurred in the above recommendations,

noting that recommendations from UNLV and CCD would be

submitted in July.



Mr. Morris moved that this matter be deferred until July.

Motion seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried without dissent.



36. Facilities for Horse Husbandry and Management Program, UNR



Vice President Pine recalled that in October, 1973 the

Board had authorized an equestrian facility for the College

of Agriculture, to be constructed at the Valley Road Farm.

mately 80' x 94'; however, the building was subsequently

Mr. Steninger spoke of a request from the Historical

Society in Elko for the Regents to participate in a

been committed to a convocation at UNR. However, it was

suggested that the October meeting, scheduled for October

25 in Las Vegas, might be rescheduled for Elko for such

a purpose. Mr. Steninger agreed to check with the His-

torical Society and report back at the July meeting.
