The Executive Committee of the Board of Regents met in the Office
of the President of the University on Tuesday, July 6, 1920, at
11 A.M.  There were present Regent North, presiding, Mrs. Hood
and Mr. Pratt, Vice President Lewers and Mr. Gorman.

The minutes of the meeting of May 29th were approved.

Regent Pratt confirmed the action of the Board of Regents in
advancing the salary of President Clark to $12,000, effective
July 1, 1920, and desired that his vote be recorded in the af-
firmative in order that the vote of the Board would be unanimous.

Vice President Lewers submitted the following recommendations
of President Clark:

    I recommend that the salary of Dr. G. F. Ruediger as Director
    of the Bureau of Hygiene be made $3500 per year from July 1,
    1920.

    Vote:

        Mrs. Hood        Aye
        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

    I recommend that the salaries of the Nevada Agricultural
    Experiment Station staff, as submitted by Director Doten,
    be approved and effective from July 1, 1920:

        S. B. Doten        $4000    N. F. Peterson    $2500
        F. L. Bixby         3000    M. R. Miller       2750
        George Hardman      2500    S. J. Frandsen     1080
        C. E. Fleming       3600    Martha Ryan        1260

    Vote:

        Mrs. Hood        Aye
        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

    I recommend Director Dinsmore's salary to be $3500 per year
    from July 1, 1920 and Wayne Adams' salary to be $1800 from
    July 1, 1920.

    Vote:

        Mrs. Hood        Aye
        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

    I recommend that the salary of C. A. Norcross, as Director
    of the Extension Division, be $4000 from July 1, 1920.

    Vote:

        Mrs. Hood        Aye
        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

    I recommend that beginning July 1, 1920, Mr. F. W. Traner
    be advanced in rank to Associate Professor in Education at
    a salary of $2750 per annum.

    Vote:

        Mrs. Hood        Aye
        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

    I recommend that V. E. Scott's advance in salary be $600
    from July 1, 1920, in place of the $250 named in my May list.
    This change is necessary because of withdrawal in June of
    certain Department of Agriculture funds, given heretofore.
    Professor Scott will teach all year instead of half year by
    the new plan.

    Vote:

        Mrs. Hood        Aye
        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

    I recommend the payment to Peter Frandsen for 18 days'
    service in the Hygienic Laboratory at the rate of $125 per
    month or $72.60.  This is in accord with our usual practice.

    Vote:

        Mrs. Hood        Aye
        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

    I recommend the advance of Miss Lucile Rosenbrock's salary
    to $110 per month, beginning July 1, 1920.  This is in line
    with our agreement with Miss Rosenbrock when she was employed
    and is recommended by Comptroller Gorman.

    Vote:

        Mrs. Hood        Aye
        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

    Laboratory Technician in the Veterinary Control Service
    at $1200 per year beginning July 1, 1920, as recommended
    by Dr. Records.

    Vote:

        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

    gist of the State Veterinary Control Service and the Depart-
    ment of Veterinary Science of the Agricultural Experiment
    Station at a salary of $2700 per year, effective from June
    15, 1920, as recommended by Dr. Records.

    Vote:

        Mrs. Hood        Aye
        Mr. Pratt        Aye
        Mr. North        Aye

July 1 the President and the Board of Regents received from the
U. S. Interdepartmental Social Hygiene Board the voucher and
budget for $6000 for the University's Department of Physical
Education.

It is understood that the Federal Mining Experiment Station for
precious metals will be moved from Colorado to Reno, the contract
having been signed already by the University officials and the
signature of the Director of the Bureau of Mines at Washington
being only a technicality.  Dr. Lyon and Dr. Lind approved the
Nevada location and the plans for the housing of the station
which were drawn while they were here during the past week.

List of Claims No. 24, covering Checks No. 179 to 185 inclusive,
for a total of $19,833.27, and List No. 26, covering State Claims
Nos. 329 to 347 inclusive (and including a claim for $35 for a
building permit for the Teacher Training building, which is to
be passed on by the Attorney General before payment is made),
for a total of $24,211.24, were approved.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood        Aye
    Mr. Pratt        Aye
    Mr. North        Aye

Adjourned.
