7. Resignation of President Armstrong



Dr. Anderson read into the minutes the following letter from

President Armstrong:



June 14, 1967



Dr. Fred M. Anderson, Chairman

Board of Regents

University of Nevada

Reno, Nevada



Dear Dr. Anderson:



This letter will constitute formal notification to you and

the other members of the Board of Regents, as already agreed

verbally between us some time ago, that it is my intention

to resign as President of the University of Nevada in the

near future at a mutually agreeable time.



As also agreed verbally, I am prepared to remain in the

position during the transition period on a month-to-month

basis beginning July 1, 1967, but not beyond December 31,

1967.



May I express to you and to all members of the Board my

sincere appreciation for the support which the Board has

given me in the past and my confidence that the University

will move forward in strength in the years ahead.



My nine years here have been stimulating, always interesting

and, I believe, productive. I shall always maintain a close

personal interest in the University's welfare.



Sincerely yours,



/s/ C. J. Armstrong

Charles J. Armstrong

President



Dr. Anderson submitted the following suggested letter to be

sent to President Armstrong in response to his letter of

resignation:



Dear President Armstrong:



This is written in response to your letter of June 14, 1967

giving formal notification to the Board of Regents of your

resignation as President of the University of Nevada in the

near future at a mutually agreeable date.



I must first comment that I have had the privilege of serv-

ing as a member of the Board of Regents during your entire

period of service in Nevada that began on September 1, 1958

and have therefore had full opportunity to observe that

advances both in quantity and quality that have occurred

under your leadership.



Since September 1958, enrollment has increased from a total

of 4,044 students on both Campuses to one of 10,039 students

for the year 1966-67. The faculty has increased from 284 in

1958 to 668 during this past year. During this same time,

Nevada Southern University has experienced a growth approxi-

mately double that of the University as a whole and has

emerged as a real partner in the University System, acquir-

ing a separate Chancellor and granting Baccalaureate and

Master's Degrees. Growing pains have been many and in my

opinion you have dealt with them competently.



Under your leadership, research has become an important part

of the University System both in volume and quality. One of

the most significant programs introduced during this period

was that of the Desert Research Institute. It began in 1960

with a grant of $47,500 from the Fleischmann Foundation and

with no State support. Since that time a total of less than

$30,000 of State funds has come into DRI but a total in ex-

cess of $6,000,000 in outside support has been generated by

the Institute. Many distinguished scientists and scholars

have been brought to the University by the DRI and a number

of important new programs have been developed.



Examples of these are Laboratory of Atmospheric Sciences,

Center for Water Resources Research, Laboratory of Desert

Biology, Center for Western North American Studies, new re-

search programs in Anthropology and Archaeology, and Basque

Studies, Cancer Research, Laboratory of Environmental Patho-

Physiology, and the Data Processing and Computer Center.

Admittedly, the initiative demonstrated by Vice President

Mordy and his distinguished staff have been of importance in

these developments but they have occurred under your super-

vision and encouragement as President of the University. In

1958-59 the volume of outside sponsored research in the

University of Nevada was $55,000; during the current year it

is in excess of $2,500,000 and appears to be established on

a sound basis and in a most promising form. These figures

exclude Federal funds for Agricultural Research.



During this same time, academic standards have significantly

increased, including higher admission requirements and more

stringent requirements for higher student achievement. In

1961 the first Ph. D. programs in the history of the Univer-

sity were introduced with expressed support from the Legis-

lature and the Ph. D. is now offered by the Reno Campus in a

total of eight fields.



Also in 1961 the first Honors Program, designed for the top

15% of High School graduating seniors, was introduced with a

total of 50 students enrolled. By last Fall this number had

increased to more than 250. A new program in Honors has

also been introduced during the past year at NSU.



As previously noted, the number of faculty has been more

than doubled but at the same time the percentage of faculty

holding the Doctorate has been maintained at an average of

about 55%. This compares very favorably with the national

average of 40.5%. Although no recent definite figures are

available, it is generally conceded that this percentage

definitely declined substantially since 1953. This in-

sistence on maintenance of quality in faculty has certainly

been substantially due to your influence.



In summary, the University has made noteworthy strides in

growth and development since you arrived in 1958. Growth in

physical size and material resources has been outstanding

but even more significant have been the advances in the

University's growth in quality. This type of growth has

meant ability on the part of the University to serve ever

more effectively the people of the State and can be measured

favorably in Nevada by all generally accepted criteria --

accreditation, private support, research program, increased

library facilities, faculty, student body, academic

standards, graduate program, Honors programs and other

programs of high level and promise.



These have all been achieved under and in large part due to

your leadership. I am certain that I speak for the other

members of the Board of Regents in saying that we have been

aware of your own high academic qualifications as well as

your forcefulness and skill as a top University Administra-

tor. We have enjoyed working with you in continuing prog-

ress in higher education for Nevada. We are grateful for

all that you have helped us to accomplish here and our

sincere thanks and best wishes for the future go with you

and your family.



Sincerely yours,



/s/ Fred M. Anderson, M. D.

Fred M. Anderson, M. D.

Chairman



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried that

the above letter be unanimously endorsed by the Board of

Regents and requested that it be spread upon the minutes

of the Board of Regents.



8. Proposed Patent Policy



The following patent policy, as approved by the Reno Campus

faculty and presently under consideration by the Nevada

Southern University Campus faculty, was presented with

President Armstrong's recommendation for approval for the

Reno Campus with the understanding that further considera-

tion would be given this policy statement for adoption

University-wise after NSU faculty have had an opportunity

to act upon it.



I. Except where otherwise provided by Federal law or

administrative rules:



(1) The provisions of this document will be binding

on all University personnel as of the effective

date of this document.



(2) However, University students who are not func-

tioning as employees may retain patent rights

to any discovery made while attending the

University.



II. In the event there is any question as to whether a

a particular discovery evolved by an employee is

related to the employee's University employment, the

University Patent Policies and Procedure Board will

review the individual discovery and made a recommen-

dation to the President as to the University's

interest in the discovery.



III. In furtherance of this policy the University shall

enter into an agreement with the Research Corporation

of New York for the review and commercial development

of patentable property.



IV. Gross profit from a patent managed by Research Corpor-

ation shall be as follows:



25% to the inventory, 42.5% to Research Corporation

and 32.5% to the University. At the discretion of the

Board of Regents, the University share normally shall

be divided equally between the College or Department

of the inventor and the University Search Development

Account. Unusual expenses (see Research Corporation

contract) will be deducted from the University and

Research Corporation share. The 25% share for the

inventory, referred to above shall be in effect re-

gardless of whether the discovery was submitted to the

University as a policy requirement as in item V below,

or voluntarily as in item VI below, or as the result

of working on outside funded research projects or

grants as described in item VII below.



V. University personnel with assigned research duties in

which a patentable discovery directly related to their

assigned research duties is involved, must assign the

patent rights to such discoveries to the University.

Where Federal law or regulations require, rights are

the property of the U. S. Government. The University

has 90 days after disclosure to the University to

submit the patentable discoveries or inventions to the

Research Corporation. If the University does not

submit the discoveries or inventions to Research

Corporation within 90 days, the individual is auto-

matically released from any obligation to the Univer-

sity under this patent policy.



VI. All other University personnel and students may volun-

tarily submit patent discoveries or inventions to the

University for consideration. The University has 90

days to submit the patent discovery or invention to

the Research Corporation. If the University does not

submit the discoveries or invention to Research

Corporation within 90 days, the individual is auto-

matically released from obligation to the University

under this patent policy.



VII. Rights and interest in discovery which may result from

outside research contracts or grants to the University

will be automatically assigned to the University. The

procedure for this will be for the patent to be ob-

tained in the name of the individual, and the indi-

vidual to assign the patent to the University of

Nevada. The University retains the right to use

the assignment of patent rights in the negotiation

of individual research contracts or grants.



VIII. The University retains the option to act for 90 days

to file a patent application in its own behalf if

Research Corporation rejects a patentable discovery or

invention. In this event, the University share of the

gross profit will be 75% and the individual share 25%.



IX. The Vice President and Director of Desert Research

Institute shall administer the patent policy of the

University.



X. It shall be the responsibility of the Administrator

concerned, normally a Dean or Director, to see that

the University's interests, as well as those of the

faculty member, are protected when reviewing and

approving contracts and grant agreements.



XI. The foregoing policy supersedes any existing Univer-

sity patent statements or policies; however, the

above is not intended to change any existing patent

agreements already approved by the President and

the Board of Regents.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the above policy statement be adopted

for the Reno Campus and that the policy be adopted for the

whole University System after the NSU faculty has taken

action in the Fall.



9. Progress Report on Reorganization Study



Dr. Anderson reviewed the earlier action of the Board on

this item and stated that although there had not been time

for the Committee to meet and present a Committee recom-

mendation, President Armstrong had certain recommendations

concerning the direction which he felt the study should

take. His recommendations are as follows:



Any report to the Board of Regents should be a joint

one, not a series of individual reports, but rather

the result of joint deliberation, based upon study

of other systems on which we have been gathering in-

formation.



Reorganization is much too important in all its im-

plications for the future to be rushed into without

careful study. Bad mistakes can be made.



The request of the Reno Faculty Senate for participation

in a study of reorganization should be honored and NSU

Senate should also be invited. This is vital for facul-

ty morale and support of the final decision, whatever

it may be.



It would probably also be wise to seek some outside

consultation; e. g., with representatives of two

concepts of University Systems. The basically im-

portant questions which need answers are:



(1) Who exercises administrative judgment regarding

budget requests of individual Campus, etc.?



(2) Who is spokesman for the University System?



(3) Who takes overall looks at programs of two

Campuses, considers problems of balance, unneces-

sary duplication and expenditures, coordination

of System policy regarding academic requirements,

education policy, faculty welfare; e. g., function

of Chairman of Coordinating Council, now held by

the President?



To continue the study of the Committee, I recommend

also that two representatives from each of the Campus

Senates be appointed to this Committee.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, that 2 members

from each of the Campus Senates be appointed to the

Committee.



Motion by Mrs. Magee that the above motion be amended to

include one member from the research arm of the University

but died for lack of a second. Original motion then carried

without dissent.



Dr. Anderson stated that members of the Board should give

consideration to who would be appropriate to invite as out-

side consultants. Dr. White suggested, and the Regents

concurred, that the Committee be encouraged to bring in

consultants from the research, extension and other areas of

the University.



Discussion of a timetable for the report of the Committee

resulted in consensus that a report could be made at the

September meeting of the Board with consultants invited to

come to the October meeting. It was understood that a

final report could not be made by the Committee until after

the meeting between the consultants, Committee members and

members of the Board.



10. Lease Agreement Between University of Nevada and Nevada

Historical Society



President Armstrong submitted, with his recommendation for

approval, a revised lease agreement between the University

of Nevada and the Nevada Historical Society.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Smith, carried

without dissent that the Chairman of the Board be authorized

to sign the proposed lease agreement (attached in permanent

minutes).



11. ROTC



Dr. Anderson stated that additional material has been

submitted relative to the ROTC question and indicated that

because the Regents had not yet had sufficient time to

fully review this additional information he would recommend

that this matter be further delayed until the next meeting

of the Board.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Smith, carried without

dissent that further discussion on the ROTC issue be

deferred until the August meeting of the Board.



12. Proposed Community College in Elko County



Dr. Anderson discussed with the Board a letter he had writ-

ten to the supporters of the proposed Community College in

Elko County, as follows:



June 26, 1967



Dr. Thomas Hood

946 Idaho Street

Elko, Nevada



Dear Tom:



I am pleased to see in the newspapers that the residents of

the Elko area are progressing satisfactorily toward develop-

ment of a Community College. I, for many years, along with

other members of the Board of Regents and Administration of

the University, regretted that the University could not make

a greater contribution to education in areas remote from our

main Campuses.



While we do not even now possess funding or staff for a

major contribution I have wondered whether you could make

use of our Statewide Extension Services where possible to

supplement your offerings there. This might be accomplish-

ed in a manner most suitable for you through formation of

a Coordinating Committee that could be established jointly

by our institutions.



It is also possible that the University Library resources

and correspondence school offering might be of some value

to you in planning a wider scope of course offerings.



If we can be of help in the development and continuing

operating of the most worthwhile community effort we shall

be glad to do so in any way possible.



Sincerely yours,



/s/ F. M. Anderson, M. D.

Fred M. Anderson, M. D.

Chairman



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. White, carried

unanimously that the Board endorse the letter written by the

Chairman of the Board.



13. New Degree Programs, NSU



President Armstrong presented a request from Chancellor

Moyer to initiate three new Bachelor's Degree programs in

the Arts at NSU. New degree programs to be offered begin-

ning in the Fall of 1967 are Fine Arts (B. F. A.), Music

(B. A.), Speech and Drama (B. A.).



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Dr. White, carried without

dissent that the new programs be offered as presented.



14. Proposed Class A Action



President Armstrong presented with his recommendation for

approval the following Class A Action as approved by Reno

Campus Faculty and as reported in Faculty Policy Bulletin

#67-5:



No person holding the Assistant Professor, Associate

Professor, Professor rank or the equivalent rank at

the University of Nevada shall be permitted to become

a candidate for an advanced degree at the University

of Nevada, with the following exception: students who

enter a graduate program and who, by virtue of their

advanced training are qualified for temporary appoint-

ments as faculty persons, shall be permitted to com-

plete their training while holding such a position.



Since no report of action has been received from the Faculty

of Nevada Southern, Mr. Jacobsen moved, seconded by Dr.

White, that this matter be tabled until a recommendation has

been received. Motion defeated.



Chancellor Miller indicated that there is some urgency to

this proposal in that several cases are pending now which

would be covered by this policy. He further pointed out

that Nevada Southern has had this recommendation since April

and has not as yet taken action.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that this Class A Action as proposed be

approved for the University System with the understanding

that if subsequent action by the NSU faculty is not compat-

ible, this matter would then be referred to the Coordinat-

ing Council.



15. Proposed Code Changes, NSU



President Armstrong presented, with his recommendation for

approval, the following suggested changes in the NSU Code:



(a) Article Seven, Section 7.11



Instead of a Salary and Code Committee, it is proposed

that a Salary Committee and a separate Code Committee

be created. It is also proposed that the name of the

Faculty Welfare Committee be changed to Committee on

Faculty Privileges and Benefits.



(b) Article Three - Add a Section 3.4



3.4 The Adjunct Faculty



Any individual who is highly qualified in a field

of academic knowledge and whose salary is not paid

by the University of Nevada may receive the title

of Adjunct Instructor, Adjunct Assistant Profes-

sor, Adjunct Associate Professor, or Adjunct Pro-

fessor provided that all the following conditions

are met:



a. It must be clearly demonstrable that his

service will be of value to the academic pro-

gram of the University comparable to those of

regular members of the academic faculty.



b. His appointment shall go through the regular

channels as provided by the University Code;

i. e., the recommendation shall be initiated

by the Department concerned, and then go for

approval to the Dean of the College, the

President and the Board of Regents.



c. He must demonstrate that he fulfills the

appropriate requirement for the corresponding

academic position (i. e., without the title

"Adjunct"), as specified by the Department

concerned and by the University Code, and as

required by the Personal Data Form. He shall

be a non-voting adjunct member of the academic

faculty.



d. Such adjunct member of the academic faculty

may, with the approval of the Graduate Dean

and the Graduate Committee, be appointed a

member of Co-Chairman of Graduate Degree

Thesis Committees.



(c) Article Four - Section 4.7



The first sentence should read: "The Senate shall

elect a Chairman and a Vice Chairman from among its

membership as the last item of business at the regular

meeting of the Spring semester ...".



As part of this amendment, it is proposed to strike

Section 4.8.



Motion by Mr. Jackson, seconded by Dr. White, carried

without dissent that the above code changes be approved.



16. Special Rate for Youth Groups Using Stead Housing



President Armstrong presented the following recommendation

from Vice President Humphrey and Chancellor Miller:



That a special rate of $1.50 per night for 1 to 6

days be established for Youth Groups such as members

of American Youth Hostels, Inc., touring College

groups, Boy Scouts, etc., using Stead housing.

Further provision is that:



(1) no sheets are provided (use own sleeping

bags or sacks);



(2) no towels provided and



(3) rooms are left in a clean and presentable

condition.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the above rate be established as

recommended.



17. Medical School Site Visit on July 13 and 14, 1967



Dr. Anderson discussed with the Board the proposed site

visit by Dr. Ruhe, Acting Director of the Department of

Undergraduate Medical Education of the American Medical

Association, and Dr. Smythe of the Association of American

Medical Colleges on July 13 and 14 and asked each member

of the Board who can do so to plan to attend any or all of

the proceedings for those two days.



18. Appointment of a Dean for the Medical School



Dr. Anderson read to the Board the following letter ad-

dressed to him as Chairman from Dr. Ernest W. Mack,

Chairman, Board of Trustees, Washoe Medical Center:



5 July 1967



Fred M. Anderson, M. D. Chairman

Board of Regents

University of Nevada

Reno, Nevada



Dear Mr. Anderson:



The Board of Trustees of the Medical Center wish to convey

to the Regents of the University their grave concern over

the apparent failure to appoint a Medical School Dean. As

you know, the Trustees have gone to considerable expense

to reprogram our schematic drawings to include provision for

teaching facilities. Our anxiety is heightened by the fact

that these reprogrammed drawings are nearing completion.

This means that preliminary drawings will commence shortly.



It is at this junction that preliminary plans for the Medi-

cal School should also begin because preliminary drawings

for the hospital and the Medical School must be submitted to

the Federal Government concurrently if we are to qualify for

any monies available under the Bureau of Physician Manpower.



It should be stressed that before any drawings on the Medi-

cal School can begin, we must know the educational philos-

ophy of the Dean who is to head the school.



We would appreciate hearing from you concerning this matter.



Sincerely,



/s/ Ernest W. Mack, M. D.

Ernest W. Mack, M. D., Chairman

Board of Trustees



Dr. Anderson also read for the minutes the following letter

from the Office of Attorney General:



June 22, 1967



Dr. Fred M. Anderson

Chairman, Board of Regents

University of Nevada

275 Hill Street

Reno, Nevada



Dear Dr. Anderson:



You ask whether the Board of Regents has the authority to

employ a Dean as Chief Consultant in developing a specific

plan for the proposed Medical School, including the physical

facility. The relevant facts are as follows:



The Board of Regents adopted a motion providing for immedi-

ate and long range planning to provide for the development

of a Health Services Center associated with the University

of Nevada and in conjunction with the Washoe Medical Center

and other health facilities. It further recited that plan-

ning and development should proceed as soon as financially

or otherwise feasible, and a commitment of up to $300,000 of

non-appropriated funds was reconfirmed. Subsequently, the

Nevada Legislature adopted Assembly Concurrent Resolution

15 for the primary purpose of encouraging the Board to

continue feasibility studies in regard to establishing

Medical School facilities in northern Nevada and to provide

a basis for Federal and private grants.



It is our understanding that the proposed Dean would be the

initial and prime mover for the entire program. An archi-

tect cannot determine the extent of his fee until a Dean

is hired. The Dean would have to develop the scope of the

expected work upon which the architect would make this

determination. Final determination of feasibility cannot

be made until the architect has made his studies. In addi-

tion, Federal agencies and private foundations will not

consider grants until the Dean is employed.



It is obvious that before the intent of the motion and

resolution could proceed to implementation, a Dean would

have to be hired.



The Board would have the authority to do this, provided it

had non-appropriated funds to pay the cost.



Very truly yours,



HARVEY DICKERSON

Attorney General



By /s/ Daniel R. Walsh

Daniel R. Walsh

Chief Deputy Attorney General



In response to both of the above letters, Dr. Anderson sub-

mitted the following statement:



During discussion between doctors, staff of Washoe

Medical Center, Chancellor Miller, myself and others

with officials of Health Manpower Facilities branch

of HEW, with the Chairman of the Commonwealth Founda-

tion and the Director of Medical Affairs of the Kellogg

Foundation and the members of the Liaison Committee on

Medical Education of the American Medical Association

and the Association of American Medical Colleges, all

stressed the urgency and some the absolute need of

acquiring a Dean as one of the earliest steps in de-

veloping curriculum educational philosophy, and facil-

ities planning. The representatives of foundations

stated that they would not consider grant requests

until such an individual was selected even though

his transfer of residence might not be accomplished

for a period of time and a temporary Interim Dean

might be appointed in his place.



The Dean must be the guiding individual where the

evolving medical education philosophy is concerned

and this is considered especially important because

of the encouragement of innovations and varying pat-

terns in education in newly developing medical schools.



Some persons have questioned whether Concurrent

Resolution 15 expressed intent for the employment

of a Dean who would initially serve in a capacity

of planning and development. Because of this it

was also suggested to me during the last meeting of

the Board of Regents by several Regents that we

seek an opinion from the Attorney General's office.

This was solicited and this is now in your hands.



Determination of feasibility necessitates experienced

planning for needed faculty, proposed curriculum, and

also determination of classrooms and laboratories and

equipment for program development. Determination of

feasibility next necessitates grant applications to

government agencies, to foundations, and the possi-

bility of pledges from private sources to find out

whether adequate funds can be obtained. All of these

require the experience and knowledge of someone quali-

fied to be Dean and in addition require the services

of a certain number of consultants.



Additional facts that indicate the intent of the Legis-

lature was the postponement of voting by the Senate on

the revocation of the indenture clause in WICHE pro-

grams until a telegram arrived from HEW indicating that

it was desirable to remove this indenture clause to

make the proposed Medical School more eligible for

Federal funds.



Still another additional factor was the unanimous vote

of thanks by the Legislature to Mr. Howard Hughes for

his generous gift of $6 million to the University for

the development and operation of the Medical School.



I believe that a motion would be in order to seek a

Dean for the School to be employed as soon as he is

available and as soon as funds are available for this

employment. Until such time as he can be obtained

there should be provision for the naming of an Interim

or Associate Dean.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that the University Administration seek a

Dean for the Medical School as soon as non-appropriated

funds are available and that an Interim or Associate Dean

be appointed if necessary until a Dean is available.



Further discussion was held concerning the support offered

by Mr. Hughes toward the operating expenses of a Medical

School and Mr. Bell stated that he had been authorized to

inform the Board of Regents that there had been no change in

the conditions of Mr. Hughes' offer and that documents were

now being prepared which would effect a transfer of the

money. Mr. Bell stated the delay was only to allow time to

determine the most appropriate language and terms for the

documents.



19. Designation of Architect for Basic Science Building



Dr. Anderson recommended the firm of Welton and Beckett,

of Los Angeles, and their local associate, Mr. Roger

Simpson be designated as the architects for the Basic

Science building.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried

without dissent that Dr. Anderson's recommendation be

approved contingent upon the development of a satisfactory

agreement with the architects.



20. Training Quarters, Old Mackay Stadium



Mr. Pine reported that this building must be removed to make

room for the Physical Science Complex and recommended the

Board approve the destruction of the building and authorize

the Administration to concur in the award of a State Plan-

ning Board contract for this purpose. Money is available

in the construction fund.



Motion by Mr. Smith, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the Administration be so authorized.



21. Contracts to be Awarded by Administration



(a) Repair and resurfacing of the undedicated portion of

Evans Avenue from north of the intersection of Brooks

Street to University Village. Estimated cost is $3,000

and money is available in the General Repairs and

Improvements Account, Buildings and Grounds, University

of Nevada.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Seeliger,

carried by roll call vote that the Administration be

authorized to award the contract to accomplish the

work outlined above.



(b) The original Nye Hall project plan included a large

paved parking lot north of the building. This lot was

reduced in size to leave room for other buildings which

will eventually occupy that area. The paving was elim-

inated for financial reasons. The 1967-68 General Re-

pairs & Improvements Account of Buildings and Grounds,

Reno, includes money to place additional decomposed

granite and grade the lot; however, some paving is

considered essential. It is proposed to award a con-

tract for paving 65 feet north of the sidewalk on the

north side of Nye Hall for the length of the building.

This would require approximately 20,000 sq. ft. of

prime, 2" plantmix and a sand seal, and would provide

two rows of parking and a driveway. A special area

would also be provided for parking bicycles and motor

bikes. This would be a fee lot for automobiles belong-

ing to men living in Nye Hall. The estimated cost is

$3,600 and money is available in Traffic Fines and Fees

Fund.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried by

roll call vote that the Administration be authorized

to award the contract to accomplish the work outlined

above.



(c) In order to secure the cooperation of the State Highway

Department and their agreement to pay the costs of a

traffic light on North Virginia Street at Nye Hall, it

was agreed that the west side of the street would be

fenced by the University in such a way that pedestrians

would be channeled to the controlled crossing. At a

later date a decorative block wall may be desirable;

however, for three to five years a fence will be ade-

quate and even preferable in order to establish traffic

patterns. Mr. Pine recommended the installation of a

wire fence five feet high running from the edge of the

University owned house on the corner of Artemisia Way

and North Virginia north to the corner of College

Drive with a single opening at controlled crosswalk.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Seeliger,

carried by roll call vote that the Administration be

authorized to award the contract to accomplish the work

outlined above.



(d) Mr. Pine recommended that a sidewalk of exposed aggre-

gate (red matrex) be approved for the area between

Manzanita Lake and Manzanita Hall and presented a

sketch showing its location. This will form a section

of "Evans Walk" and $1,000 (of the $3,000 available)

will be used from the gift fund established for this

purchase.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, car-

ried by roll call vote that the sidewalk design and

location be approved as recommended and that the Ad-

ministration be authorized to award the contract to

accomplish the work.



22. Progress Report on the North Virginia Street Problem



Vice President Humphrey reported as follows:



In May the Board of Regents authorized Chancellor

Miller, Mr. Pine and me to explore alternative pro-

posals for the improvement of traffic problem on

North Virginia Street (i. e., alternative to the

movement of U. S. 395 from North Virginia to North

Sierra). By way of a progress report, this Ad Hoc

Committee has met once with representatives of the

City, once with a Chamber of Commerce representative,

and once with representatives of both the City and

the Chamber of Commerce. The attitude and spirit

of cooperation of these groups is excellent and the

University Committee is hopeful that by the Septem-

ber meeting of the Board of Regents a proposal can

be submitted which will enjoy the endorsement of

the various staff and Committee members. Should

that recommendation be acceptable to the Board, a

united appeal can be made to the State Highway

Department.



23. Bid Openings



(a) Mr. Pine reported that bids for the heating installa-

tion in the Physics area of Mechanical Arts building

were received and opened on June 27. He reviewed the

and the State Purchasing Division in the award of bids

totaling $7,243.68 to Morrill and Machabee, $13,317.34

to Armanko and $447.44 to S. P. D.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, car-

ried without dissent that the above recommendation be

approved and the University concur in the award of bids

Carson City, Nevada in the amount of $37,460.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried

by roll call vote that the contract be awarded as

recommended.



24. Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5,000



(a) Mr. Humphrey reported that the semi-annual food bids

for the University Dining Commons had been received and

tabulated. Only two awards exceed $5,000 and were

awarded subject to the approval of the Board of Regents

on July 8, 1967 (this was done to insure food deliver-

ies for the contract period beginning July 1, 1967).



Bread - Bids were as follows:



Bid 5% Preference



Rainbo Baking Company, Reno $5,644.92 $

Continental Baking Company, Reno 5,900.52 5,605.49

Welsh's Bakery, Reno 6,497.14 5,172.28



All bidders were requested to complete the affidavit

form if they desired the in-state preference of 5%.

Only Continental and Welsh's complied with the request.

It should be noted that if Rainbo had completed the

affidavit, Welsh's and Continental would have challeng-

ed the bid.



Computing 95% of the Continental bid places them as the

low bidder. It is recommended this be awarded to

Continental Baking Company.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

by roll call vote that the contract be awarded to

Continental Baking Company.



(b) Dairy Products - Bids were as follows:



Model Dairy, Reno $ 22,362.84

Anderson Dairy, Reno 22,531.78

Beatrice Foods, Reno 23,213.68



It is recommended this be awarded to Model Dairy.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen,

carried by roll call vote that the contract be awarded

to Model Dairy.



(c) The Administration had been authorized to award a

contract for certain renovation work in the Mechanical

Arts building. An award was made to Allan Gallaway for

$2,945 for work involving entrances and outside ramps.

Plans and specifications were issued to 9 contractors

but Mr. Gallaway was the only bidder.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Smith, carried

by roll call vote that the Regents confirm the award

of the bid as indicated.



(d) Mr. Humphrey reported the Desert Research Institute

had received authority from the Bureau of Reclamation,

U. S. Department of Interior, to purchase an Alpha-

Numeric Scope, DIDS 400, to be charged to Contract No.

14-06-D-5995. Bids were called for and several firms

responded without bidding. The only bid received was

for $6,000 from Raytheon Corporation of Massachusetts.

It is recommended that the Board of Regents approve the

award to Raytheon Corporation.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

by roll call vote that the contract be awarded as

recommended.



25. Desert Research Institute Financial Program



The DRI Financial Program for 1967-68 document was distri-

buted and discussed. The document was accompanied by a

letter from Vice President Humphrey containing the following

recommendations:



(1) The present budgetary control exercised for Fund One

accounts should continue to be used.



(2) Fleischmann Foundation grants, Fund 15 (project lead-

ers' 25% of overhead monies), and other non-restricted

grants should be subject to reallocation by the Vice

President and Director of DRI in order to assure maxi-

mum ability to respond to changing circumstances. He

should report such reallocations to the President on

a quarterly basis.



(3) Federal grant and contract funds and other restricted

funds should be subject to the budgetary requirements

of the granting agency.



(4) In no case should expenditures be allowed in excess of

monies either on hand or provided by contract or grant

commitment. In emergencies the DRI Contingency Fund

should be used.



(5) A report should be issued at the end of the fiscal year

showing actual expenditures as compared to program

projection.



Motion by Mr. Smith, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried with-

out dissent that the Financial Program for DRI be approved

as submitted and that the recommendations contained in Mr.

Humphrey's letter, and as outlined above, be adopted.



26. Desert Research Institute Contingency Fund



The Board of Regents reviewed a request from Vice President

Mordy that a Contingency Fund in the amount of $126,000 be

established "to provide continuity in the program of the

Desert Research Institute". Professor Mordy suggested the

balance on hand in Fund 16 be used for this purpose.

However, Mr. Humphrey pointed out that since the balance in

Fund 16 as of June 30, 1967 is $94,484, the additional

$31,516 necessary to establish the Fund at $125,000 would

have to come from current receipts of Fund 16.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Smith, carried without

dissent that the Contingency Fund be established and that

the following policies and procedures be adopted to govern

the Fund:



(1) With the approval of the Board of Regents a Contingency

Fund will be established for FY 1968 of $126,000. The

purpose of the Fund is to provide for continuation of

programs and staff where funding from other sources is

imminent or highly probably, but formal notification

of funds has not been received or contracts signed.

The sum of money to be placed in the Contingency Fund

will be reviewed annually by the Board and increased in

proportion to the growth of the Desert Research Insti-

tute program needs. Additional sums in subsequent

years for the purpose of increasing this contingency

reserve will be drawn as a first priority item from

accumulations in the Research Development Fund (Fund

16) for the then current fiscal year.



(2) Disbursement from the Contingency Fund will be made

upon recommendations of the Vice President and Director

of the Desert Research Institute, approved by the Pres-

ident and the Board of Regents.



(3) In the event of the need to act swiftly, the Director

of the Desert Research Institute may contact the Pres-

ident and then through him the Chairman of the Board

of Regents and the Chairman of the Regents Research

Committee for authorization of payments not to exceed

$10,000.



(4) The Contingency Fund will be used to support projects

which are awaiting final outside support approval. All

funds drawn from Desert Research Insitute Contingen-

cy Fund will be reimbursed. The reimbursement will

normally be made from the grant funds received on the

project making the request. In the event this is

impossible, due to grants or contracts not being re-

ceived as anticipated, the Contingency Fund will be

reimbursed the following year from the Research

Development Fund (Fund 16), after review by the Board

of Regents.



In reference to Paragraph (3), a motion was made by Dr.

White, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, and carried without dissent

that in the absence of the President, the Chancellor (of

whichever Campus was involved) would be delegated authority

to act, and in the event of absence of both the President

and the Chancellor, the Chairman of the Board will delegated

authority to act.



27. Environmental Patho-Physiology Laboratory



Professor Mordy proposed that a sum of $10,000 a month be

drawn from the Contingency Fund to support the Laboratory of

Environmental Patho-Physiology until the monies, or other

monies, become available.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried

without dissent that the Contingency Fund be used, as

suggested by Professor Mordy, to provide funds for the

Laboratory of Environmental Patho-Physiology with the

stipulation that these funds will be repaid from other funds

when available.



28. Space Needs, NSU



Chancellor Moyer submitted a space study of the classroom,

laboratory and office space at Nevada Southern and requested

authorization to acquire a number of trailers to be used for

laboratories and/or offices. Mr. Humphrey indicated that

negotiations had not yet reached the stage where he was

prepared to recommend the method of acquiring the trailers

but did indicate that he was continuing to gather informa-

tion. He suggested that the Board might wish to indicate

its approval of the use of trailers and allow the Adminis-

tration to come back and request final approval by telephone

poll of a proposal whether to purchase outright or to lease

the necessary trailers.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried

without dissent that Chancellor Moyer be authorized to

proceed with the trailer proposal and, if necessary, the

Board could be polled for final approval.



29. Expansion of Dining Commons Service Area, Reno Campus



President Armstrong presented the following letter from Mr.

Humphrey containing a recommendation for the expansion of

the Dining Commons service area on the Reno Campus:



We have examined various ways of providing some

relief from the relatively crowded conditions which

will prevail in the Dining Commons next Fall. The

recommended solution is to allow the students to

utilize the present faculty-staff dining room and

provide for that group elsewhere. We concluded

that this could best be done by moving the U. S.

Post Office to the area now occupied by Central

Office Services in the basement of the Dining Com-

mons and convert the present Post Office area to a

faculty-staff dining room.



The U. S. Post Office has agreed to the move, although

the annual rent of $4,294 will be reduced by $722 to

$3,572 due to a reduction of 415 sq. ft. of floor

space. They are prepared to make the move in July

when Central Office Services moves to Stewart Hall.



We have priced the necessary remodeling and furnish-

ing of the present Post Office area at $18,725. I

recommend that this amount be made available as an

interest-free loan from the Capital Improvement Fee

Fund (Reno) to be repaid over a 6 year period from

the annual rent payments received from the U. S.

Post Office. This will not only provide additional

seating for students in the main Dining Commons but

will accommodate the faculty and staff in a much more

desirable manner.



Motion by Mr. Smith, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried by

roll call vote that the above recommendation be approved.



30. Memorial Resolutions



President Armstrong presented the following resolutions

recently adopted by the University of Nevada Senate in

memory of Professor Alfred L. Higginbotham and Miss Mary

Hope Westbrook:



Mary Hope Westbrook, Lecturer in the Department of

English, brought to the University of Nevada many

years of experience as scholar, teacher and adminis-

trator. Her students' lives were enriched by her

wealth of knowledge and wisdom, her colleagues like-

wise by her charity and grace, her many friends

throughout this community by her admirable qualities

of mind and spirit. All who knew her are bereft by

the end this day of an extraordinary association.

The University Senate hereby records this loss to our

University and expresses to Miss Westbrooks' family

its condolences.



The University of Nevada faculty has lost one of its

most honored and distinguished members. Alfred Leslie

Higginbotham, who taught on this Campus for more than

40 years and who provided the fundamental training of

two generations of successful journalists, gave this

University and his students a legacy that will serve

them for many years to come. We, who shared some of

his years at this University, have a sense of deep

sorrow at his death. We wish to express our sympathy

and best wishes to his wife, Marie Higginbotham. This

Senate will adjourn today in memory of Al Higginbotham.



President Armstrong recommended that the Board concur in the

above resolutions and requested that they be spread upon the

minutes of the Board.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously that the above resolutions be approved and that

copies be forwarded to the families of the two people.



31. Shepard-Tupper Property Adjacent to NSU



President Armstrong read to the Board the following letter

from Mr. Humphrey by way of a progress report:



On June 13, 1967 Regents White and Bell, Mr. Westfall

and I attended the scheduled public hearing concerning

the application to rezone this property to C-1 (Limited

Commercial). Several members of the League of Women

Voters and Professors Jacob S. Orleans and Sigred Moe

were also present to protest the proposal.



The applicant requested, and was granted, a postpone-

ment stating that his attorney has been called out of

town. The hearing has been rescheduled for July 11,

1967 at 7:00 P.M.



32. Letter from Coe Swobe



President Armstrong reviewed for the Board an inquiry from

State Senator Coe Swobe concerning the occupancy of the Reno

Campus Dormitories during the last school year and the

University's plans for additional Dormitories. President

Armstrong read to the Board his reply (both letters filed

in permanent minutes).



A further topic of Mr. Swobe's letter, that of damage done

to Dormitories, was discussed. Mr. Swobe suggested in his

letter that a "damage and cleaning deposit" be required of

all students living in the Dormitory to cover damage not

clearly identifiable as the responsibility of a certain

occupant.



It was the consensus of the Board that this was a matter

which required considerable study and the Administration

was requested to bring back recommendations to the Board at

its next meeting.



33. Next Meeting of the Board



Upon motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Smith, it was

voted to change the date of the next meeting from Saturday,

August 12 to Friday, August 11, 1967. This change in date

was made to allow the WICHE Commissioners to attend the

WICHE Annual Meeting in San Francisco beginning August 12.



The meeting adjourned at 5:10 P.M.
