President Clark presented the petition of the Associated Student
Body that the Regents authorize the collection of $2.50 each
semester from each student enrolling at the University, such
collections to be used toward the erection of a Student Union
building to be built on the University Campus.

After discussion, Judge Talbot moved that the petition of the
Associated Students that the University should collect $2.50
from each student enrolling in the University each semester,
the funds to be applied to the cost of erecting a Student Union
building, is denied inasmuch as there is question as to the
legality of such compulsory collections by the Board of Regents,
but that this Board is in sympathy with the movement of the
Associated Students to acquire funds for the ultimate erection
of a Student Union building upon the University Campus and this
Board is willing to assist the Associated Students in handling
and investing any funds which the Associated Students secure
for this purpose in so far as the Associated Students may desire
the cooperation of the Board of Regents, provided that it shall
be understood that any building erected on the University Campus
from this fund would be considered as a building donated to the
University and the State and would be under control of the
Board of Regents forever as is all University property.  Vote:

    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mr. Williams         Aye

Mr. Williams moved that the following resolution be adopted by
this Board:

    WHEREAS, we are apprized of the death in Berkeley, Califor-
    nia, of Professor Gordon Haines True, a former member of
    the faculty of this University in Nevada,

    THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by this Board of Regents, that
    we, having in mind his many years of exceptionally valuable
    service to this University and his wholesome influence with
    the students, do deeply deplore the untimely death of Mr.
    True and that we hereby express to Mrs. True and children
    our sincere sympathy in their irreparable loss; and

    FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED, that this resolution be spread upon
    the minutes of this Board and that a copy of it be sent to
