6. Approval of Fund Transfers



A. Chancellor Humphrey reported that on June 17 a mail

ballot was transmitted requesting approval of the

following transfers from the UNR Contingency Reserve:



$2974.40 to Department of Biology Professional Sal-

aries to provide funds for payment for 44 days of

unused annual leve for Donald Cooney, who is changing

from an A to a B contract.



$3375.68 to Department of Health, Physical Education

and Recreation Professional Salaries to provide funds

for payment of 44 days unused annual leave for G. A.

Groten who is changing from an A to a B contract.



$4420 for Library Books to supplement funds for con-

tinuation of serials in the Library.



$10,000 to Buildings and Grounds to pave student

parking, lower Campus roadway by negotiated bids

($3000); to remove track straight of way, Mackay

Stadium, to provide practice football field by

negotiated bids ($4000); to pave motor pool parking

area ($3000).



$6600 to Buildings and Grounds to purchase 2 carryalls

for Motor Pool.



Mr. Humphrey noted that 10 responses had been received,

all affirmative, and recommended confirmation by the

Board.



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

without dissent that the results of the June 17 mail

ballot be confirmed.



B. Chancellor Humphrey reported that on June 23, a mail

ballot was transmitted requesting approval of 2 trans-

fers from the UNLV Contingency Reserve, as follows:



$6500 to Sewer Fees, 2-01-9000-143, to compensate for

increase in student enrollment.



$3052 to Buildings and Grounds, Equipment, 2-01-9000-

400, for the purchase of a vehicle.



Mr. Humphrey noted that 10 responses had been received,

all affirmative, and recommended confirmation by the

Board.



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

without dissent that the results of the mail ballot be

confirmed.



7. UNR Undergraduate Council Action



President Miller presented, with his recommendation for ap-

proval, the following action by the Undergraduate Council

of the UNR Senate relative to students on academic suspen-

sion:



(The following statement to be inserted prior to the

last sentence of the first paragraph of the statement

regarding readmission on Page 55 of the 1969-70 UNR

Catalog.)



In order to be eligible for readmission, the student

will be required to earn either in correspondence

study, Summer School, or another educational insti-

tution, a minimum of 6 acceptable semester credits if

on first suspension, or 12 acceptable semester credits

if on seond suspension, with a 2.50 grade point average

or above.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective July 1,

1969.



In the discussion following, it was pointed out that whereas

a student may now apply for readmission after remaining out

of school for one or two semesters, he is under no obliga-

tion to provide any proof that he will be better able to

succeed a second time. This requirement will provide that

proof to the committee to which he applies.



It was also noted that this requirement is not being

requested for Las Vegas.



Mr. Seeliger asked how one would justify having such a

requirement on one Campus and not on the other.



President Miller stated that in his opinion that was an

area where each Campus should properly exercise its

autonomy.



Dr. Anderson asked if this were an appropriate subject for

discussion by the Coordinating Council. Dr. Miller said

he did not believe so and urged that each institution be

allowed to develop separately in this area. He pointed

out that differences in admissions policy already exist

between the two Campuses. President Zorn concurred.



Motin by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

with Regents Anderson and Seeliger opposing that the

above recommendation be approved.



8. Medical Examination Requirement for Admission



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the admission requirements

of both UNR and UNLV, as stated in their catalogs, require

a current medical examination by the applicant's medical

or osteopathic physician. The form which is required speci-

fies that the examination must include verification of a

negative tuberculin patch of x-ray within 12 months and a

smallpox vaccination within 3 years. This requirement is

applicable to all undergraduate and graduate students en-

rolled for 7 or more credits per semester at UNR and 9 or

more credits at UNLV. Mr. Humphrey stated that this policy

was reviewed and reaffirmed most recently by the Board of

Regents on June 1, 1962. He further noted that the Uni-

versity employees are not required to have a physical ex-

amination nor a smallpox vaccination.



Mr. Humphrey continued by recalling that in Februay, 1969

Mr. Darrell D. Luce, representing the Christian Science

Communittee on Publication for the State of Nevada, re-

quested that "upon submission of certified proof of ad-

herence to the teachings of any recognized religious

denomination which has as its tenets or principles, heal-

ing through the use of prayer alone, the applicants will

be exempted from all medical requirements." At that time,

the Board of Regents directed the Administration to "make

a study of the present policy as it now exists and consider

the possibility of eliminating the requirement for a small-

pox vaccination...and...that a report be brought back to

the Board in June and that the report include the rationale

for excluding part-time students from the requirement and

that it include information concerning whether or not

faculty are required to have a physical examination." In

June, a one month extension was granted for the filing of

the report.



President Zorn reviewed the action taken at UNLV concerning

this matter, stating that he believed that the University

should modify its policy in the matter of smallpox vaccina-

tions. He recommended that a physical examination continue

as an admission requirement for all full-time students, but

that individuals be excused from the smallpox vaccination

upon documentation of their religious objections. He fur-

ther stated that it did not appear feasible, at this time,

to require medical examinations from the many special stu-

dents nor from the faculty.



President Miller expressed concurrence with President Zorn's

recommendation.



Mr. Darrell Luce spoke of the exemptions already being

granted at a number of schools and repeated his request

for exemption of all medical requirements.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that:



(1) the policy concerning medical examination requirements

for admission continue to be identical at UNR and UNLV;



(2) the modification recommended by President Zorn and

President Miller be adopted and be applicable to UNR

and UNLV, effective Fall, 1969;



(3) discussions be initiated with President Lynch of Elko

Community College concerning extension of this policy

to that institution; and



(4) a recommendation be requested from the Presidents,

after consultation with the University physicians at

UNR and UNLV, concerning the practicability of con-

tinuing the present policy or modifying it in some

way; e. g., extending the requirements to part-time

students, to employees, adding a requirement for a

serology examination, etc. If employees are to be

included, the DRI Director should also be consulted.



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

without dissent that the Chancellor's recommendation be

approved.



9. Increase in Fees, UNR



President Miller requested approval of the following

changes in fees, effective Fall semester, 1969:



June

Board

Meeting Revised

Board and Room (per semester) Present Request Request



Reno Campus

Dining (7 days) $310.00 $342.00

Room 140.00 153.00

Telephone 16.50 16.50



Stead Campus

Dining (5 days) 220.00 242.00

Room 140.00 154.00



University Village

(married student apartments) 65.00 75.00



Associated Student Fee (per semester)



ASUN 20.00

Student Union 7.50

Total 27.50 28.00 27.50



See Ref. E. As indicated in that reference, this will not

increase the ASUN fees as had originally been anticipated.



Health Service Fee (per semester) 12.00 18.00



Accident Insurance (per semester) 4.15 23.00



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Mr. Bruce Norris, who identified himself as a graduate stu-

dent and a resident of University Village, spoke in opposi-

tion to the proposed rent increase and presented a petition

from other residents of the housing development (petition

filed with permanent minutes).



Mr. Edward Pine, Business Manager, UNR, spoke in support of

the increase, noting that any surplus funds in the Auxili-

ary Enterprises accounts are placed in a reserve from which

are drawn the necessary maintenance and remodeling funds

for all residence units. He noted that more than $18,000

of necessary expenditures over the next few years have

been identified in University Village alone and the reserve

account already shows a deficit.



Mr. Bilbray said he hated to raise the cost of married

student housing and asked that the rent increase for Uni-

versity Village not be included in the above recommenda-

tion.



President Miller stated that the increase is necessary in

that major attention must be given to repair.



Another student identified himself as a resident of Uni-

versity Village and asked why married students should have

to support other housing units, noting that according to

a financial statement, University Village had shown a

$10,000 profit last year. He pointed out that the Uni-

versity Village is self-supporting.



Dr. Anderson moved that the Chancellor's recommendation be

approved. Motion failed for lack of second.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that the fee increases requested above,

with the exception of the rent increase for University

Village, be approved. Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray.



Mr. Jim Hardesty, ASUN President, spoke in opposition to

an increase in rent for University Village, stating that

he believed each housing unit should be responsible for

paying for itself.



Mr. Kersey explained the University's obligation to repay

the revenue bonds, noting that each project is charged a

certain percentage of the total debt service based on that

project's income, rather than on its original cost. One

of the reasons University Village has shown a profit on

paper, he said, is because of the small percentage which

it pays toward its bonded indebtedness.



Mr. Jacobsen said he believed the rent should be increased

only when increased service is provided to the tenants. In

the case of University Village, he said he did not believe

an increase was justified.



Dr. Anderson stated that he believed the University had an

obligation to operate on a business-like basis and could

not subsidize one group unless they were prepared to make

similar arrangements for others. He moved to table the

matter and refer it to a committee for recommendation.

Motion to table failed for lack of second.



Chancellor Humphrey recalled an earlier decision that there

would be a profit and loss statement prepared for each proj-

ect for management purposes; however, a combined profit and

loss statement would be for the total auxiliary enterprises

operation. The allocation of debt service against the in-

dividual account is an arbitrary amount based on income

(i. e., the lower the income, the lower the debt service

charged). As an alternative, and more realistically, the

debt service could be computed on the cost of the facility.

To compute on the latter basis would probably have required

a rent at University Village that would not be acceptable;

therefore, the Board is in effect subsidizing the Univer-

sity Village. He stated that if the Board approves the

motion as presented, a change should also be made in the

accounting policy to provide that a profit and loss state-

ment will be based on the capital cost of the project.

The Administration could then bring back a recommendation

on the University Village based on the premise that it

would be self-supporting.



Mr. Hardesty stated that representations had been made

that the increase in Dorm rates would be adequate to pick

up increases in salaries and cover bonded indebtedness. He

expressed concern that a change in the accounting system

might have the end result of having to decrease the rates

for Dorm students while increasing rates for University

Village. He suggested it would be more feasible to sub-

sidize the married students with increased fees by single

students.



Mr. Jacobsen's motion carried without dissent.



Mr. Jacobsen expressed concern that perhaps not enough low

cost housing was available for married students and moved

that reports be provided to the Board on the feasibility

of providing more married student housing for both Campus-

es. Motion seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried without dis-

sent.



10. Allocation of Fee Waivers for Music



President Miller recalled that in April the Board had di-

rected that 50% of the out-of-state fee waivers available

to UNR be allocated to Athletics and 50% be allocated to

other categories without further designation until after a

full report had been made on the Music Department and the

status of the Marching Band. He noted that a final report

had been made on the matter in June. He requested ap-

proval of his earlier recommendation that 23% of the total

available out-of-state fee waivers be allocated to Music

and 27% be allocated to other categories.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



11. College of Education Building, UNR



President Miller reported that the preliminary plans for

this project were not ready as had been anticipated because

of some delays in arranging meetings between the architect

and the staff of the College. He said he did not consider

the delays serious and believed the time could be made up

as the project moves along.



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

without dissent that the Plant and Property Committee be

authorized to approve the preliminary plans for the UNR

Education building and the UNLV Humanities building if

these plans are ready for review prior to the September

meeting of the Board.



12. Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5000, UNR



(1) Mr. Pine reported that semi-annual bids for the UNR

Dining Commons were opened June 16, 1969.



(a) Eggs (Bid No. 905)

Mr. Pine recommended award of the bid to Olsen

President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey con-

curred.



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

carried without dissent that the bid of Olsen

Brothers be accepted as recommended.



(b) Meat Products (Bid No. 894) for various process-

ed meats, wieners, bacon, ham, bologna, sausage,

Mr. Pine recommended award to Beatrice Foods.

President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey con-

curred.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen,

carried without dissent that the bid be accepted

as recommended.



(2) Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened June 7, 1969

for purchase of laboratory equipment and supplies

for the Chemistry Department. Mr. Pine recommended

that awards totaling $13,248.28 be approved as fol-

lows:



Matheson Scientific, Hayward, Calif. $ 5,939.12

Scientific Products, San Francisco, Calif 3,873.05

Van Waters & Rogers, San Francisco, Calif. 2,943.54

Scientific Glass Apparatus, Fullerton, Calif. 399.37

A. Daiger & Co., Richmond, Calif. 93.20

Total $13,248.28



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray,

carried without dissent that the above recommenda-

tions be approved.



(3) Mr. Pine reported that bids were opened July 8, 1969

for dairy ration and pelleted feed mix for the College

of Agriculture. He noted that information was mailed

to 11 suppliers; however, only one bid was received

from Albers, Inc., Reno.



150 tons dairy ration @$65.40 $ 9,810.00

8 tons pelleted feed mix @$77.00 619.00

Total $10,429.20



Mr. Pine recommended award to Albers, Inc. President

Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray,

carried without dissent that the bid be awarded as

recommended above.



President Miller stated that a number of bids will be opened

in July and August and requested authorization to request

approval of the Board by mail ballot.



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

without dissent that such authorization be granted.



13. Progress Reports on University Capital Improvement Projects



A progress report on University projects under the super-

vision of UNR Physical Plant personnel was included with

the agenda for information and a progress report from the

State Planning Board was distributed. Both reports are

on file in the Chancellor's Office.



14. Student Bill of Rights



President Miller presented, with his recommendation for

approval, a Student Bill of Rights for the University of

Nevada, Reno. He suggested that it be accepted with the

objective that action would be requested at the September

meeting. (Document filed with permanent minutes.) Presi-

dent Miller noted the presence of a number of students who

had worked on the document and requested that they be

invited to comment.



Mr. Hug agreed, but asked about the development of the

Student Code, stating that he would like to see what the

students' responsibilities are as well as their rights.



Mr. Hardesty reviewed the history of the document, noting

that it had begun under the tenure of ASUN President Ernie

Maupin and was originally titled "Students Rights and

Responsibilities". The title had been changed at the

suggestion of the UNR Faculty Senate. He stated that it

is anticipated that a student Conduct Code will be ready

to be recommended to the students in September.



Robyn Powers and Kathy Klaich both spoke in support of

the document on behalf of the ASUN student government and

Dr. Gary Peltier spoke on behalf of the faculty.



Dr. Anderson said he believed the document should be re-

ferred to the Attorney General's Office for legal review

and then be considered at a meeting of the Student Affairs

Committee.



Mr. Walsh agreed that there are many legal ramifications

which must be resolved.



Dr. Anderson moved that the document be referred to the

Attorney General for review and to the Student Affairs

Committee after the Attorney General's report has been

received. Motion seconded by Mr. Jacobsen.



Dr. Peltier noted that the preparation of this document

had not been entirely a local effort, pointing out that

such documents have been in effect at a number of Univer-

sities for as long as 3 years.



Mr. Walsh asked if he could be provided with copies of the

original documents from which the UNR document was pattern-

ed.



President Miller agreed that review by the Attorney General

was desirable but urged that it be kept moving along. Mr.

Walsh pointed out that his review would be lengthy, but said

he would hope to have a report by the end of August, but

could not guarantee it.



It was agreed that the ASUN would provide, through President

Miller's office, documents and working papers used by the

ASUN in preparing the statement and also documents con-

cerning the organization of student government.



Motion carried without dissent.



The meeting adjourned at 11:30 A.M. for a groundbreaking cer-

emony for the Law Library of the National College of State Trial

Judges. The regular meeting reconvened at 1:40 P.M.



15. Establishment of University Musical Society



President Zorn presented, with his endorsement, a proposal

from Dr. Howard Chase that a University Musical Society be

established for UNLV and the Las Vegas community. He

pointed out that the new Performing Arts Center will pro-

vide facilities for a much expanded program of music activ-

ities, and there is need to develop substantial financial

support beyond existing levels of Campus resources. He

requested approval of the Board of an organization to be

known as the University Musical Society, as outlined in

the proposal by Dr. Chase (filed with permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



16. Designation of Musicians Memorial Scholarship Endowment

Fund, UNLV



President Zorn noted that intemittently the University re-

ceives contributions from people in the community who wish

to memorialize local musicians, and frequently they

specify that these gifts be utilized for Music scholar-

ships. Rather than expend these funds by direct alloca-

tion, the Music faculty has suggested that the gifts be

pooled as endowment capital with the income allocated to

scholarships for Music students. Specifically, they

recommend that:



(1) a special account, initiated with the $1455 of the

Louis Basil-William Smart contributions, be designat-

ed as the Musicians Memorial Scholarship Fund:



(2) the fund be in the form of an endowment to reach a

minimum amount of $10,000 before any income from it

is used for scholarship purposes;



(3) these funds be invested in the University of Nevada

Endowment Fund;



(4) the distributions of the scholarships be at the sole

discretion of the faculty of the Department of Music

unless certain stipulations are made in writing by

the donor(s);



(5) the scholarships be issued in the names of the

persons being memoralized (in rotation, if necessary),

thus perpetuating the names of those so honored;



(6) the names of the persons memorialized be placed on a

bronze plaque which will hang in the Music Concert

Hall foyer or other prominent place, the expense to

be sustained by the Department of Music.



Chancellor Humphrey endorsed President Zorn's request and

recommended approval by the Board.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



17. Request for Reduced Fees for Retired Persons



President Zorn presented a request, with his recommendation

for approval, from the UNLV Senior Citizens Resource Center

that opportunity be afforded to retired persons to audit

classes on a reduced fee basis. Specifically, in classes

where enrollment has not filled to capacity, payment of a

fee of $10 per course would permit persons of 62 years of

age or older to enroll in an auditing status. Registra-

tion details would be processed through the Senior Citizens

Resource Center.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, effective

September 1, 1969.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



In response to a question concerning possible interest in

providing the same opportunity at UNR, President Miller

agreed to refer this matter to the UNR Faculty Senate for

its consideration and recommendation.



18. Proposed Increase in Evening Division and Extension Part-

Time Teaching Pay Rate



President Zorn noted that currently the rate of pay for

those engaged in part-time teaching, Evening Division and

Extension Programs, is $200 per credit hour. The UNLV

Faculty Senate has recently recommended that the pay rate

be at 75% of the per credit compensation provided by the

individual's academic year salary. He stated that al-

though he agreed the pay rate should be increased, he

believed it impracticable to implement the Faculty Senate's

resolution and offered a compromise by recommending that

a new rate of $250 per credit hour be established for

1969-70 with continuance of an additional $25 per credit

hour for those faculty members who travel to off-campus

class location.



Chancellor Humphrey endorsed President Zorn's recommenda-

tion, noting that the current rate became effective Spring

semester, 1969, and was considered a temporary and partial

solution to the problem of more equitable salaries for

these positions. He recommended that effective September

1, 1969, at UNLV only, the rate for Evening Division teach-

ing be raised to $250 per credit (regardless of rank of

teacher) and that Extension Division rate for off-campus

instruction become $250 per credit (regardless of rank of

teacher) plus $25 increments for distance from Campus.



President Miller stated that this will be a matter for

discussion with the UNR Faculty Senate during the Fall

and a report will be made to the Board in October or

November concerning the pay rate for UNR.



Dr. Robert Boord stated that the faculty have voted that

they be reimbursed at the same rate as they are for Summer

Session teaching; however, he said, they understand this is

not financially feasible at this time. He suggested some

consideration be given to changing the practice whereby a

regularly enrolled student will take a class offered by

the Evening Division but no offsetting funds will be trans-

ferred from the regular day program. He suggested that

the Board of Regents issue a statement that they agree in

principle with using the same pay scale for all teaching.



President Zorn suggested that this approval of the increase

from $200 to $250 per credit hour must be considered as

evidence of good faith on the part of the Board in attempt-

ing a partial solution to the problem.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



19. Bob Davis Scholarship Fund



President Zorn stated that after consultation with a facul-

ty-administrative committee, he wished to recommend that

the UNLV share of the Bob Davis Scholarship Fund be awarded

upon a basis comparable to financial need eligibility for

the Federal work-study program. He noted that although

no quota of awards would be reserved for ethnic minorities,

undoubtedly many qualified applicants would be from Negro,

Indian or other culturally deprived groups. Selection of

grantees and renewal of awards would be handled by the

Faculty Scholarship Committee.



President Zorn further noted that, as specified in the

terms of the legacy, preference would be given to Nevada

born applicants. Other special consideration could in-

clude graduation from a Nevada high school and/or resi-

dence status in University fee assessments. The stipend

would vary, he said, in amount within the range of $200-

$1000 per year and could be one of several components in

a financial aid "package" provided to qualified students.

These grants in aid would be renewable for students making

satisfactory progress in their studies, thus permitting

continuing assistance from the Freshman year until gradua-

tion.



Mr. Jacobsen recalled the earlier discussion of the needs

of the students who cannot achieve high grades because

of their requirement to work. He also asked if the sug-

gestion of retraining women had been considered. Mr.

Jacobsen asked if the Board of Regents would have an

opportunity to see how this works. Chancellor Humphrey

suggested a report showing how it works with a given

number of students. Mr. Jacobsen agreed that would be

satisfactory and suggested a similar report from UNR.



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

without dissent that President Zorn's proposal on the use

of the UNLV share of the income from the Bob Davis Scholar-

ship Fund be approved.



Mr. Hug asked for a report at a future meeting concerning

the black studies courses which are presently being offer-

red.



20. Agreement Between University and Saga Food Service



President Zorn requested approval of a new contract be-

tween Saga Food Service and UNLV. He noted that this

new contract reflects a change from previous years in

the number of meals served per week (increased from 19

to 20) and the amount charged per week (increased by 6

cents per day per student).



Mr. Bilbray asked if the students were satisfied. Mr.

John Cevette said the overall program has been good,

adding that Saga has always been willing to work with

the students.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the contract with Saga Food Service

be approved.



21. Request for Loan from Capital Improvement Fee Fund



President Zorn noted that in February it was estimated that

there would be a deficit of $34,817 in the Tonopah Hall

and Dining Commons operations, and it was contemplated that

the accounts would be balanced by a transfer from the UNLV

Capital Improvement Fee Fund. He stated that $33,500 is

the total for this auxiliary services deficit and recom-

mended that this amount be made available as a loan from

the UNLV Capital Improvement Fee Fund.



Chancellor Humphrey presented an analysis of the UNLV

Capital Improvement Fee Fund from its inception through

7-1-72 (filed with permanent minutes) and pointed out

that approval of this load for $33,500 and the anticipated

deficit for 1969-70 of $32,521 for the Dorm and Dining Hall

will result in a deficit of $14,342.54 in the Capital

Improvement Fee Fund as of 7-1-70. However, he said, there

seems to be no reasonable alternative but to approve the

requested loan and he so recommended. He noted that the

fund will, if the projection is accurate, be in the black

by Fall, 1970.



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

without dissent that the loan of $33,500 from the UNLV

Capital Improvement Fee Fund be approved as recommended.



22. Additions to Work Program, 1969-70



President Zorn noted that when the 1969-70 Work Program was

approved, the Colleges at UNLV were approved in summary form

only with the understanding that if a departmental break-

down was desired it would be presented to the Board in July.

Dr. Zorn stated that he did wish to recommend such a break-

down in two Colleges, that of Science and Mathematics and

Social Sciences. Pertinent additions to the Work Program

were submitted as Ref. R and are filed with the permanent

minutes.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

without dissent that the additions to the Work Program

be approved as submitted.



23. Elevator, Social Science Building



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that a telephone poll of the

Board had been conducted on May 11, 1969, concerning the

possibility of securing the Governor's approval to in-

crease the 1968-69 authorized expenditure of UNLV by

$40,000 in order to install an elevator in the Social

Science building to accommodate several paraplegic stu-

dents and faculty members. Mr. Humphrey noted the follow-

ing results to the telephone poll:



Dr. Fred M. Anderson Yes

Mr. Thomas G. Ball Yes

Mr. James H. Bilbray Yes

Mr. Archie C. Grant Yes

Mr. Procter Hug, Jr. Yes

Mr. Harold Jacobsen Yes

Mrs. Molly Knudtsen Unable to Contact

Dr. Louis Lombardi Unable to Contact

Mr. R. J. Ronzone Yes

Mr. Albert Seeliger Yes

Dr. Juanita White Yes



Chancellor Humphrey requested confirmation of the telephone

poll.



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

without dissent that the results of the telephone poll

be confirmed.



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the Governor had ap-

proved the increase in authorized expenditures for the

purpose of installating the elevator. He further noted

that the State Planning Board had estimated that comple-

tion of the project would require approximately 8 months,

due mostly to the 5 months required for delivery.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the State Planning

Board be requested to proceed and that they also be re-

quested to explore ways of speeding up the project.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



Item #24 missing.



25. DRI Financial Plan for 1969-70



Acting Director Warburton referred to two documents: The

DRI Financial Plan for 1969-70, prepared by DRI, which he

noted had been transmitted with the agenda and which he

requested the Board of Regents accept, and the Chancellor's

Office interpretation, prepared in the form of an Estima-

tive Budget (which had been transmitted under date of July

2, 1969) which he recommended the Board adopt as the finan-

cial plan for operation of the DRI during 1969-70.



Chancellor Humphrey endorsed Mr. Warburton's recommendation.



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

without dissent that the estimative budget be approved as

recommended.



26. Agreement with State Planning Board



Chancellor Humphrey presented an agreement between the

State Planning Board and the Board of Regents which he

recommended be approved by the Board. He noted that

this is a standard agreement wherein the Board of Regents

agrees to provide the non-appropriated funds necessary to

the construction of the College of Education building, UNR,

College of Education building, UNLV, and the Physical Sci-

ence building, Phase II, UNR (copies of agreements filed

with permanent minutes).



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

without dissent that the agreements with the State Planning

Board be approved as recommended.



27. Estimative Budgets for 1969-70



Chancellor Humphrey submitted estimative budgets for pro-

grams not approved at the June 6 meeting, as follows:

(budget filed with permanent minutes)



Gymnastics Camp, UNR

Intercollegiate Athletics, UNR

Intercollegiate Athletics Scholarship & Recruiting, UNR

Student Health Service, UNR

Jot Travis Student Union, UNR

Campus Student Union, UNLV

Campus Student Union Bookstore, UNLV

Campus Student Union Snack Bar, UNLV

Campus Student Union Games Area, UNLV

Indirect Cost Recovery, DRI

Fleischmann Foundation Grant for Administration, DRI



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the estimative budgets be approved

as submitted.



28. August 15 Deadline for Filing Admission Application



Chancellor Humphrey noted that both UNR and UNLV Catalogs

include the information that August 15 is the deadline for

filing applications for admission to the Fall semester.

This statement of policy first appeared in the "1961-62

Catalog of the University of Nevada" but there is no

record of the Board of Regents approving the policy. This

policy has been adhered to at UNR but not at UNLV. Chan-

cellor Humphrey recommended that the Board formally approve

this policy and that UNR and UNLV both follow the policy.

He noted that UNLV has, because they have not been follow-

ing the policy, reservations concerning enforcement of

the policy immediately and requested President Zorn to

comment.



President Zorn expressed concern that there would not be

sufficient time in which to inform prospective students

that the policy would indeed be enforced this year and

requested that UNLV be allowed a one-year delay.



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

without dissent that the policy be formally approved

and that UNLV be allowed a one-year delay in enforcing

the policy.



29. Report of the Educational Policies Committee Meeting of

July 11, 1969



Mr. Hug noted that the Educational Policies Committee

had held two meetings during which significant steps had

been taken on the way to comprehensive evaluation of the

programs at both Campuses. He further noted that there

had been a recommendation that instead of proceeding as

a committee which has only 5 members, it seemed desirable

to proceed as a committee of the whole under the Chair-

manship of Regent Bell.



Mr. Bell presented a report of the July 11 meeting of the

Committee as follows:



The Committee received a presentation of a proposal

for an option in Atmospheric Physics to the existing

Master of Science in Physics at UNR.



After review and discussion, Mrs. Knudtsen moved,

seconded by Mr. Bilbray, that the Committee recom-

mend that the option proposal be presented to the

Board for a first reading at the July 12 meeting

with the objective of a second reading and action

at the September meeting. Motion carried without

dissent.



The Committee also received a memorandum from Chan-

cellor Humphrey which stated certain assumptions

concerning the proper steps to be followed in the

planning process directed toward future new pro-

grams and providing the Board of Regents with in-

formation concerning updating of the 10-year plan,

information concerning steps followed to date, and a

suggested procedure for the accomplishment of the

steps.



After review and discussion, Mr. Bilbray moved that

the procedure suggested by the Chancellor be recom-

mended to the Board for approval. Motion seconded

by Mr. Seeliger, carried without dissent.



Motion by Mr. Bell, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendations of the Committee

be approved by the Board.



Mr. Hug asked for comments on the suggestion that the Board

meet as a Committee of the Whole.



Dr. Anderson moved approval of this suggestion. Motion

seconded by Mr. Seeliger, carried without dissent.



30. Approval of Preliminary Plans, UNLV College of Education

Building



President Zorn introduced Jack Miller, A. I. A., architect

for the project, and Dr. Anthony Saville, Dean of the Col-

lege of Education, noting that they were prepared to present

the preliminary plans for the UNLV College of Education

building.



Mr. William Hancock, Manager of the State Planning Board,

was also present.



Following a slide presentation by Mr. Miller and Dean

Saville, Mr. Hancock noted that the project is within the

budget and within the scope of work presented to the

architect. He stated that the Planning Board has ap-

proved the plans subject to plan checking.



There was discussion concerning the proposed site of the

Education building with concern expressed that placement

of the building as proposed would block or detract from

the Performing Arts Center. Mr. Hug suggested that the

two architects get together (Mr. Miller and Mr. Mc Daniels)

on the proposed site of the building to make sure there are

no problems.



President Zorn requested approval of the preliminary plans

as presented. Chancellor Humphrey concurred, adding a

suggestion that approval of the preliminary plans be sub-

ject to verification by President Zorn that the archi-

tects have consulted and have agreed that there is no

problem.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried with-

out dissent that the preliminary plans be approved, sub-

ject to the verification by President Zorn of the archi-

tects' concurrence on the proposed location.



Mr. Bell asked if getting the architects together would

delay this project. Mr. Hancock said he did not believe

it would. He agreed to proceed with Mr. Hug's suggestion

that representation in writing by the architects to Dr.

Zorn would be sufficient.



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

without dissent that the Plant and Property Committee be

authorized to take any action on the UNLV Education build-

ing which might be necessary between now and the next

Board of Regents meeting.



31. Campus Host Funds



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in July, 1968, the Board

of Regents had established a host fund for each Campus of

$2000 by transfer from the Board of Regents Special Proj-

ects Account. These fund are made available by the Presi-

dent to Deans and other officers for special purposes in

which the University serves as a host. He noted that the

balance in the UNR Campus Host Fund was $546.62 as of June

10, 1969; and the balance in the UNLV Campus Fund on the

same date was $1689.70. He recommended that a transfer of

$1763.68 be made from the Board of Regents Special Projects

to bring both accounts back to $2000 for the 1969-70 fiscal

year.



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

without dissent that the above transfer be approved as

recommended.



32. Increase in Fees, Evening Division and Off-Campus Programs



Chancellor Humphrey noted that the present fee for part-

time students (6 credits or less at UNR and 8 credits or

less at UNLV) is $19 per credit. The fee for Summer

Session is also $19 per credit. He reported that both

President Miller and President Zorn had recommended that

the fees for Evening Division and Off-Campus programs be

increased to $19 per credit, effective September 1, 1969,

and the fee for correspondence courses be increased to

$19 per credit, effective Spring semester, 1970.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Moved by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



33. Edith Albert Estate



Chancellor Humphrey requested that in order to comply with

a request from the attorney for the estate and to facili-

tate the transfer of all stocks due the University of

Nevada from the Edith Albert Estate, the following resolu-

tion be adopted:



RESOLUTION #69-4



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada will receive certain stocks from the estate

of Edith Albert; and



WHEREAS, the attorney for the estate is now in the

process of transferring these stocks to the Univer-

sity of Nevada; and



WHEREAS, it is anticipated that completion of these

transfers will require several weeks;



THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Trust Department

of First National Bank of Nevada be and hereby is

authorized to receive and sign for all securities

and other items from the Edith Albert Estate on be-

half of the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

without dissent that the above resolution be adopted as

recommended.



34. Proposed Amendment to the By-Laws of the Board of Regents



Chancellor Humphrey presented a proposed amendment to the

By-Laws which he noted had been reviewed by the Chancel-

lor's Advisory Cabinet and was believed to be in basic con-

formity with the spirit of the recommendation of the Co-

ordinating Council (proposed amendment filed with permanent

minutes). He suggested comments from the other officers.



Mr. Hug noted that Article IX of the By-Laws provides that

"the By-Laws may be amended at any regular or special

meeting of the Board of Regents by a 2/3 vote of all mem-

bers, provided that written notices and copies of such

planned amendment shall have been given to each member

of the Board of Regents at least 30 days prior to the

meeting at which amendment action will be introduced."

He suggested a motion to place this matter on the Septem-

ber agenda would be in order.



President Zorn noted that this proposed amendment had

been reviewed in the Chancellor's Cabinet and he believed

that it provided for participation as desired by the

faculty. President Miller concurred, stating that he

was in basic agreement with the document.



Dr. Peltier expressed approval, adding that the Administra-

tion should be congratulated on the development of this

document. He said that he did not consider it necessary

to go back to the UNR Faculty Senate. Dr. Boord agreed

that it conformed to the spirit of the Coordinating

Council's recommendation. Dr. Butcher also expressed

agreement with the document, adding that he believed it

represented the sentiments of the faculty.



Mr. Hardesty and Mr. Cevette expressed agreement with the

proposed involvement of the students.



Dr. Peltier suggested an editorial change on Page 3, Para-

graph C, Lines 20 and 21, to provide that the sentence

would read "...appropriate student representative shall

be a member of these committees."



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

without dissent that this change be made in the proposed

amendment.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

without dissent that this amendment to the By-Laws be

placed on the September agenda for action by the Board of

Regents.



35. TIAA



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that legislation enacted in

1969 grants the University the privilege of establishing

an optional retirement program for professional staff.

He noted that the legislation provides that the Board of

Regents designate the optional retirement plan and that

all professional staff members make an individual choice

by December 6, 1969; their choice to become effective

January 1, 1970. Staff hired July 1 through December 6

need not make a decision nor participate in a retirement

plan until December 6.



Mr. Humphrey recommended that:



(1) The Board of Regents designate Teachers Insurance

Annuity Association-College Retirement Equities Fund

as the optional retirement plan for professional

staff; and



(2) It be the policy of the Board of Regents that staff

employed between July 1 and December 6, unless al-

ready having State retirement coverage from another

State agency, wait until December 6 to make the

selection.



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



36. Performing Arts Center, UNLV



President Zorn noted that this item had been included on

the agenda because it was anticipated that a number of

changes might have to be made in the scope of the Per-

forming Arts Center project. However, he said, Mr. Mc

Daniels has requested an additional meeting with the facul-

ty committee and there is a possibility that design changes

will not have to be made after all.



Mr. Bilbray said that the Performing Arts Center is be-

coming an albatross around the University's neck and some

way must be found to get it going or a decision made to

abandon it.



Dr. Zorn noted that the faculty and the Administration

are working very hard to resolve some of the problems

and attempts are continuing to convert the pledges to

cash.



37. Additional Personnel Appointments, UNLV



President Zorn requested confirmation of the following

additional appointmentss for 1969-70:



Mrs. Karen Palmer Everts, Financial Aids Counselor, from

July 1, 1969 to June 30, 1970, at a salary of $12,300 (new

position).



Mr. William H. Smith, Jr., Counselor for the Qualifying

Program, for the period July 1, 1969 to June 30, 1970,

at a salary of $12,300 (new position).



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

without dissent that the above personnel appointments be

confirmed.



38. Approval of Purchase in Excess of $5000, DRI



Acting Director Warburton requested authorization to pur-

chase an x-ray generator, x-ray tube, cathode gun, targets,

Lang x-ray camera and fittings. He noted the following

bids were received:



Jarrell-Ash Division of Fisher

Scientific Company $13,641

Van Waters & Rogers 14,809

General Electric 15,900



Mr. Warburton noted that funds are available from National

Science Foundation and recommended the bid of Jarrell-Ash

in the amount of $13,641 be accepted. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



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

without dissent that the bid of Jarrell-Ash be accepted

as recommended.



39. Request to Vacate Swenson Street



President Zorn noted that in response to a request from

the Board at its June meeting, Chairman Hug wrote a

letter to the Clark County Commissioners urging action

on the University's request that Swenson Street be vacated.

The following letter was received from Mr. A. J. Taggard,

Director of Planning:



Dear Mr. Hug:



Your letter of June 11, 1969 to the Clark County

Board of County Commissioners regarding the vacation

of Swenson Street through the University of Nevada,

Las Vegas Campus has been referred to this office

for comment.



We wish to advise you that Swenson Street is a

secondary arterial and will extend from Sahara

Avenue south to where it will intersect with

Paradise Road, 1/2 mile north of the Mc Carran

Airport entrance. This street is necessary to

relieve the traffic on Paradise Road and Maryland

Parkway.



The present and projected traffic studies show

that it will be impossible to handle the north-south

traffic to the airport and University without Swenson

Street.



We have discussed the traffic problem with the repre-

sentatives of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and

also have advised them that we could not recommend

vacating this street, but would assist them in align-

ment of the street through the Campus in order that

it cause as little inconvenience as possible to the

design of the Campus.



Very truly yours,



A. J. TAGGARD

Director of Planning



Dr. Zorn noted that previous communications with the Clark

County Commissioners had led the University Administration

to believe that the street would not be used. If this

street does become a dedicated thoroughfare, he stated,

it will become a problem in the development of a Campus

and would also cause a serious traffic hazard. He suggest-

ed that there might be a compromise possible, pointing out

on a map a suggested alternate route which the University

was prepared to propose to the Planning Commission. He

said he believed the University was in a very strong bar-

gaining position and asked for authorization from the Board

to proceed with the negotiations as suggested.



Mr. Bilbray moved that Dr. Zorn be authorized to proceed

with the negotiations and to take immediately an appropriate

action to protect the Campus. Motion seconded by Mr.

Jacobsen.



Mr. Pine suggested that since the University is the only

property owner concerned, a petition to vacate might be

in order. There was also discussion concerning the

question of whether the County might exercise the right

of eminent domain.



Dr. Zorn proposed that he continue negotiations with the

Planning Commission and at the same time request the

Attorney General's attention to the question of eminent

domain.



It was agreed that Dr. Zorn should be encouraged to nego-

tiate furthr with the County Commissioners on the vacation

of Swenson Street.



Mr. Bilbray's motion carried without dissent.



40. Selection of Architect for Health Science Facility, UNR



President Miller noted that the University is preparing

to make application to Federal agencies for assistance

in the Health Science Facility but must have architectural

assistance before doing so. He recommended that Mr. Edward

Parsons be selected as the architect for the project. Pres-

ident Miller further recommended that the State Planning

Board be requested to cooperate in this project.



Chancellor Humphrey concurred, noting that the University

is not required to request State Planning Board assistance

in projects not being funded by State appropriation; how-

ever, he said, it is to the advantage of the University

for the Planning Board to be involved.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that Mr. Edward Parsons be selected as

the architect for the Health Sciences Facility and that

an agreement with the State Planning Board be developed

for review by the Board in September. Motion seconded

by Dr. Lombardi, carried without dissent.



The meeting adjourned at 4:25 P.M.

07-12-1969
