Lombardi, Magee, Ronzone and White; President Armstrong, Vice

President-Finance Humphrey, Chancellors Miller and Moyer,

Mr. Edward Pine, Director of Physical Plant, and Mr. Dan Walsh

of the Attorney General's office. Members of the Press were

Mr. Dromiack, Mr. Laxalt, Miss Cooper and Miss Miller.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Anderson at 9:05 A.M.



1. Minutes of Previous Meeting



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously that the minutes of the previous meeting be approved

and distributed, with the additional suggestion than an

indication be made on future lists of appointments to pro-

fessional positions as to whether the appointment was being

made to fill a new position, or if a replacement, the name

of the person being replaced.



2. Report of the Investment Committee Meeting of July 9, 1965



Dr. Lombardi presented the minutes of the meeting as fol-

lows:



The Committee met at 12:00 noon in the Hardy Room, Jot

Travis Student Union. Present were: Public members Mr.

Julius Bergen and Mr. E. L. Cord; Board members Procter R.

Hug, Jr. and Mrs. Molly Magee. Also present were Board of

Regents Chairman Fred M. Anderson, M. D., Regents Grant,

Davis, President Charles J. Armstrong and Vice President-

Finance Neil D. Humphrey. Representing First National Bank

of Nevada were Mr. R. O. Kwapil, Vice President and Senior

Trust Officer and Mr. Jerry Troyer, Trust Officer.



Dr. Louis Lombardi, Chairman, had notified Mr. Humphrey that

he would be unable to attend and requested Mrs. Magee to

preside.



A review of the portfolio had been mailed by the Bank July

2; however, Mr. Kwapil noted there were several errors in

extensions of figures and distributed a new report. The new

report shows the market value of the portfolio as of June

28, 1965, as $3,528,912 with a projected annual income of

$125,052 or a yield of 3.5% on market value and a yield of

4.4% on cost value.



Mr. Kwapil recommended that: (1) certain recently received

shares be sold, namely 20 shares of General Motors Corp.,

50 shares of Loew's Theatres, 300 shares of Woodall

Industries, Inc. and 23 shares of Sierra Pacific Power,

Pfd.; and (2) the proceeds of the sales plus approximately

$15,000 cash on hand be placed in U. S. Treasury Bills.

It was moved by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Bergen that the

recommendation be approved. Motion passed unanimously.



Mr. Bergen moved, seconded by Mr. Hug that Mr. Humphrey be

instructed to prepare an explanatory statement concerning

the operation of the Endowment fund, such statement to be

distributed to the Committee members and all Regents.

Motion passed unanimously.



Mr. Cord commented upon the desirability of disposing of all

long term bonds in the portfolio and of using approximately

ten percent of the total Endowment fund to purchase

speculative stocks. These ideas were discussed at length

but no specific action was taken.



Mr. Humphrey noted that the Board of Regents had recently

authorized the purchase of Bank Certificates of Time Deposit

(in addition to U. S. Treasury Bills) with surplus operating

capital and that 90 day certificates secured from some banks

could be @ 4% and @ 4.5% for six months fully secured col-

lateral agreements. He noted that this compared favorably

to the 3.7% current yield on U. S. Treasury Bills and

suggested consideration of purchasing limited amounts of

Time Certificate Deposits with Endowment monies. Mr. Kwapil

recommended against this and stated that First National Bank

of Nevada would pay 4.5% only on one year Time Certificate

Deposits. The consensus of the Committee was that Time

Certificate Deposits should not be purchased with Endowment

funds.



Mr. Bergen commented that he was satisfied with the present

basic balance of the portfolio and recommended no further

change at this time.



It was agreed that the next meeting of the Committee would

be held Friday, October 15, 1965 at noon in the Hardy Room

of the Jot Travis Student Union.



Meeting adjourned at 1:40 P.M.



Neil D. Humphrey

Acting Secretary



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

mously that the action of the Committee be approved by the

Board.

July 23, 1965



Dr. White presented the minutes of the meeting as follows:



The Educational Policies Committee met in the Travis Lounge

of the Student Union building on July 23, 1965. Present

were Regents Anderson, Davis, Grant, Hug, Jacobsen, Magee,

Ronzone and White; President Armstrong, Chancellors Miller

and Moyer, Vice President Humphrey and Deans Kelly and

O'Brien.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman White at

1:40 P.M.



1. Graduate Education in Clark County



President Armstrong reviewed for the Committee the

efforts made over the past year to increase the courses

offered in graduate education in Clark County. Material

prepared by Deans Cain, Kelly and O'Brien and mailed to

the Regents earlier, had summarized the action over the

past year involving Clark County Schools and the staffs

on the Reno and Las Vegas Campuses. It was the consen-

sus of the Deans, as revealed in their summaries and in

discussion which followed with Dean Kelly and O'Brien,

that although many problems do exist, and chief among

them of course is the lack of sufficient staff to meet

the needs for graduate courses, steps are now being

taken to solve these problems. It was further revealed

in discussion that Clark County has a very great concern

for in-service programs for their teachers, completely

apart from graduate study.



Although no action was taken by the Committee and no

recommendations were made, it was the consensus of the

Committee that the steps being taken by the Administra-

tion to meet the demands of Clark County for graduate

education are realistic and practical. However, it was

was also recognized that no completely satisfactory

solution can be offered without adequate staff and

facilities.



2. President Armstrong presented for the Committee's con-

sideration with his recommendation for approval, the

following proposed Class A actions as approved by the

University Council:



A. Organization of a Graduate Faculty



The following statement is recognized as consti-

tuting the controlling philososphy underlying the

more detailed provisions which follow:



(1) Control of graduate work must be vested in

the specialists who are capable of directing

the preparation essential to particular courses

and programs which lead to advanced degrees.

In effect, this means that Departments within

Colleges must be in practical control of the

graduate work they administer, or, if the de-

gree is of somewhat broader spread, a combina-

tion of Departments must be in control under

the direction of the College or Colleges in

which the student's major is taught. For pur-

poses of this document College is to be defined

as in the Code, Chapter II, Section II.



(2) Graduate work and reasearch are the concern of

the whole University. In effect, this means

that Departments and Colleges should structure

their own graduate programs, but a University-

wide agency should establish minimum standards

and should have power to act in administrative

matters when they are also to a degree matters

of policy.



(3) The Graduate School has the responsibility for

coordinating the Graduate Degree Programs of

the other Schools and Colleges, for awarding

graduate degrees, and for maintaining uniform

standards and procedures among the various

programs. Inasmuch as the Graduate School has

no Departments organized within it and is not

responsible for the hiring, promotion and ten-

ure of any faculty member, there is need for a

coordinating and review group of faculty mem-

bers to be drawn from other Schools and Col-

leges as the responsible governing body of the

Graduate School.



Dean of the Graduate School



The Dean of the Graduate School shall Chair meet-

ings of the Graduate Council and shall be responsi-

ble for administering the admission, registration

and completion of degree requirements for all grad-

uate students and those receiving graduate credit

at the University.



The Graduate Council



The Graduate Council shall:



a. Approve graduate courses and programs as pro-

posed by the several Colleges, and recommend the

granting of graduate degrees after the Depart-

ments and Colleges have approved them.



b. Assure itself that Colleges have exercised their

responsibility for maintaining graduate-level

work in these courses and programs. The Grad-

uate Council shall give main attention to admis-

sion and instruction and to the quality and

competence of the work done, and only secondary

attention to the format and structure of pro-

grams, which are the responsibility of the

several Colleges and Departments.



c. Regulate the giving of graduate credit for

undergraduate courses, taking cognizance of

the differing needs of the various degree pro-

grams.



d. Provide continuing review of standards and

practices of the Graduate Programs in all areas

and offer leadership in the general promotion

of graduate work.



e. Report to an ultimately responsible larger

body. The larger body, to be known as the

Graduate Faculty, shall be a segment of the

University Faculty and be covered by Chapter

II, Section 3, Article 7 of the University

code regarding the calling of meetings. The

Graduate Faculty shall act as a Board of Appeal,

exert a veto when necessary and report to the

President that recommended policies of graduate

work are being carried out. Minutes of each

meeting of the Graduate Council shall be dis-

tributed to all members of the Graduate Faculty.



The Graduate Council shall be made up of between 17

and 20 members including one from the Graduate Fac-

ulty of each College offering graduate work and the

remaining members to be selected by the individual

Colleges on the basis of their proportional number

of members of the Graduate Faculty, with no one

College's members comprising the majority of the

Graduate Council. The term of office shall be 3

years, 1/2 to be selected each year.



The Graduate Faculty, under the Chairmanship of

the President of the University of Nevada, shall

consist of the academic faculty members who are or

have been engaged in resident teaching of, or super-

vision of, graduate students within the preceding

5 years, or who possess the appropriate terminal

degree in their fields.



The above Class A action was submitted to the University

faculty for mail ballot (Faculty Policy Bulletin #65-7,

May 17, 1965) and was approved by a vote of 162 approv-

ing, 147 not approving and 1 abstaining.



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried

without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board the approval of the organization of a Graduate

Faculty as set forth above.



B. Change in Regulations Governing Suspended Students



The following are recommended changes in the Catalog of

General Information (1964-66 edition) from the Univer-

sity Policy Committee on Academic Standars. The Uni-

versity Council has approved these changes by a major-

ity vote. No suggested changes have been received.



Delete the following in the Catalog of General Infor-

mation:



(1) Under subtopic "Penalties" page 46, "Credit earned

at another institution by a student under scholas-

tic suspension from the University of Nevada will

not be accepted by the Office of Admissions unless

the student has obtained prior written approval."



(2) Under subtopic "Advanced Standing Regulations",

page 29, Item 2, "The University will not recognize

credit earned at a second institution during a per-

iod of disqualification or equivalent from the

first institution."



These items are on pages 41 and 27, respectively, of the

1964-65 edition of the Catalog of General Information.



The above Class A action was submitted to the University

faculty for mail ballot (Faculty Policy Bulletin #65-7,

May 17, 1965) and was approved by a vote of 255 approv-

ing, 49 not approving and 6 abstaining.



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

without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board the approval of the change in regulations

governing suspended students as set forth above.



C. Change in Admission Requirements (English)



The University Council endorsed the recommendation of

the U. P. C. on Academic Standards concerning a change

in admission requirements. This recommendation was

sent to the University faculty in Faculty Policy Bul-

letin #65-6. No suggested changes in the recommendation

were received.



The recommendation is:



The English requirement for admission to the Baccalaure-

ate programs of the University shall be increased from

3 units to 4 units of formal High School English, except

that applicants who have earned a B average or better in

the first three units shall not be required to have the

fourth unit of English. (Note: As used in the above,

"formal High School English" does not include Public

Speaking, Journalism, Business English, etc.) The ef-

fective date of this new admission requirement shall be

the Fall, 1968.



The above Class A action was submitted to the Univer-

sity faculty for mail ballot (Faculty Policy Bulletin

#65-7, May 17, 1965) and was approved by a vote of 206

approving, 99 not approving and 5 abstaining.



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

without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board the approval of the change in admission re-

quirements (English) as set forth above, with the rec-

ommendation that further study be given to the possible

future substitution of Journalism, Public Speaking,

Business English, etc., for the 4th unit of English.



D. Change in Leave Procedure



On May 20 the University Council approved the following

recommendation from the U. P. C. on Faculty Welfare as a

Class A Action, Procedure I.



That Faculty Bulletins #792 and #800 be amended to allow

a professional staff member who takes maternity leave

to use paid sick leave as all or part of the maternity

leave, limited to the number of days of paid sick leave

to which she would normally be entitled at that time.



Reference should be made to pages 11-12 of the Univer-

sity Code governing Class A Actions, Procedure I. There

were no dissenting votes in the Council on the adoption

of this recommendation.



The above Class A action was submitted to the University

faculty (Faculty Policy Bulletin #65-8, May 24, 1965)

and received no protests during the prescribed period of

time.



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

without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board the approval of the Class A action concerning

the amendment to leave procedure as set forth above.



Upon motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Dr. White, it was

unanimously voted to recommend to the Board that the

Civic Oath be deleted from the Commencement Exercises.



The meeting ajourned at 3:00 P.M.

5. Report of the Plant and Property Committee meeting of June

24, 1965



Mr. Jacobsen presented the minutes of the meeting as fol-

lows:



A meeting of the Plant and Property Committee was held on

June 24 at 11:00 A.M. on the Nevada Southern University

Campus.



Present: Chairman Jacobsen, Regents Anderson, Davis. Grant,

Hug, Lombardi, Magee, Ronzone, together with President

Armstrong. Mr. Smutzer, Landscape Architect, retained to

to develop plans for the landscaping of the University of

Nevada Southern Campus, was also present.



Mr. Smutzer briefly outlined his general ideas concerning

landscaping and requested suggestions from the Regents. It

was agreed that the plan should contemplate the landscaping

of all possible areas on the Campus which will be permanent

and not disturbed by future construction.



It was agreed that Mr. Smutzer will submit preliminary plans

to the Plant and Property Committee at a meeting on July 23

next.



President Armstrong was requested to determine the total

amount of funds available for the project beyond the $50,000

already earmarked by Regents from the sale of the Mount Rose

property. Specifically, which fund can be made available by

the State Planning Board.



It was agreed that Mr. Pine should meet with Mr. Smutzer at

the earliest possible opportunity to discuss development of

the plans.



President Armstrong reported a telephone conversation with

Dr. Broten concerning the matter of the surface for the

track in the new Stadium. Dr. Broten indicated he had pre-

pared a letter of recommendation in which he had indicated

that further research brought forth an offer from Firestone

Rubber Company for the necessary rubber so far below prices

quoted by U. S. Royal, that the total cost of a low tempera-

ture asphalt track would be approximately $5,000 less than

grass tex, including straightaways. Firestone will also

provide a written guarantee for one year, provided they are

able to supervise local mixing.



Dr. Broten's recommendation is to proceed with low tempera-

ture rubber asphalt as indicated above if necessary guaran-

tee is provided and total price is at the level of or lower

than the grass tex bid.



Upon motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Davis, the

Plant and Property Committee unanimously voted to approve

Dr. Broten's recommendation as indicated. Since the Plant

and Property Committee had been authorized to act for the

Board of Regents in the matter, action will be immediately

transmitted to the architect.



Meeting adjourned at 12:20 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



Charles J. Armstrong

Acting Secretary



Action by the Board:



Upon motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, it

was voted unanimously to approve the earlier action of the

Committee in approving Dr. Broten's recommendation concern-

ing the surfacing material for the new athletic track.



6. Report of the Plant and Property Committee meeting of

July 23, 1965.



Mr. Jacobsen presented the minutes of the meeting as fol-

follows:



The Plant and Property Committee met in the Travis Lounge of

the Student Union building on July 23, 1965. Present were

Regents Anderson, Grant, Hug, Jacobsen, Lombardi, Magee and

White; President Armstrong, Chancellors Miller and Moyer,

Vice President Humphrey, Mr. Pine, Mr. Hancock of the State

Planning Board, Mr. Mc Daniel, architect for Nevada Southern

University's Library addition, and Mr. Smutzer, landscape

architect.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Jacobsen at

9:30 A.M.



1. Library Addition, Nevada Southern University



Mr. James Mc Daniel, architect, was present to review

the preliminary plans for the addition to the Library

at Nevada Southern University. Mr. Hancock of the State

Planning Board and Mr. Pine, Director of Physical Plant,

have reviewed the plans and recommend that they be

approved.



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

without dissenting vote that the preliminary plans for

the Nevada Southern University Library addition be

approved as presented.



2. Landscaping, Nevada Southern University



Mr. Smutzer, landscape architect, presented preliminary

plans for the landscaping of Nevada Southern's Campus.

The master plan included the total landscaping of the

entire Campus with an initial increment recommended at

a cost of approximately $50,000. The increment as sug-

gested by Mr. Smutzer would consist of approximately

264,940 sq. feet of lawn area, an assortment of trees

and a sprinkling system to accommodate the planted area.

It was noted that there is not sufficient money to land-

scape the Dormitory and the above estimate does not in-

clude the installation of walks. Mr. Smutzer recommend-

ed the lawn be of Hybrid Bermuda and each Fall Rye be

sown to continue the green in Winter.



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

without dissenting vote that the Committee approve the

preliminary master plans for the landscaping of NSU

and recommend to the Board that the Administration

proceed with landscaping the initial increment as funds

permit.



Mr. Ronzone entered the meeting at 10:00 A.M.



Mr. Pine pointed out to the Committee that although the

water level at NSU was sufficient for perhaps two more

years, the water level was falling rather rapidly and

the increased water usage required by the additional

landscaping would make further demands on the water

supply. He suggested that consideration be given to

either seeking permission to drill another deeper well

on Campus (which would probably require the capping of

the existing well) or tying into the District water

line. He stated that a new well at a depth of approx-

imately 620 feet should provide for the irrigation

and domestic water needs of the entire Campus. It was

the consensus of the Committee that he should continue

to irrigate from the well for the present and investi-

gate both methods of satisfying the future water re-

quirements for the NSU Campus.



3. Whittell Forest and Wildlife Area



Dr. Sill came to the meeting to discuss with the Commit-

tee some of the impressions gained from the field trip

to Little Valley on Thursday, July 22. For those mem-

bers not able to attend the tour he distributed a

status report on the various research projects being

accomplished in the wildlife area.



4. Social Science Building, Reno Campus



The intermediate plans for the Social Science building

have been reviewed and the State Planning Board staff

has suggested consideration of the elimination of the

furnishing budget to enable the entire project to be

completed (i. e., main building, Lecture Demonstration

building, heat line extension and site development).

Mr. Pine recommended that the intermediate plans be

approved as presented and the following budget be

adopted with all funds that can be saved to be

allocated to furnishings:

Mr. Humphrey further stated that ... "I contacted seven

key Legislators, (Bailey, Bastian, Bunker, Gibson,

Kinsley, Mc Gowman, Pozzi) and attempted to contact

several others. I explained the University's need for

extra land on the south boundary and the fact that the

Flamingo Road property was less useful to the Univer-

sity. I made specific mention of the 1963 Legislation

which established the south line for exchange purposes

by the State Planning Board. I also stated that the

State Planning Board had recommended that the University

go south to Tropicana Road if possible. I gave the

appraisal information and said that we would attempt to

negotiate a trade of approximately equal value (rather

than equal area). All Legislators contacted approved

of what the University was attempting to work out. It

was understood, of course, that each was speaking as an

individual.



"Mr. Pine met with Mr. Gerald Leavitt on July 10 and

proposed a trade of 29.78 acres of NSU property (going

south from Flamingo Road for 34.9 acres of University

Land Company property. Mr. Leavitt agreed in principal

to the trade, but requested a five percent Real Estate

commission (approximately $25,000). Mr. Pine told him

that this was not possible and Mr. Leavitt agreed to

reconsider and contact Mr. Pine not later than July 22.

(Mr. Pine stated that Mr. Leavitt had not returned from

Argentina as of July 23.)



"I recommend that the Board of Regents approve a

transfer of 29.78 acres of NSU property fronting on

Flamingo Road for 34.9 acres of University Land Company

property adjacent to the Campus on the south and that

no Real Estate commission be paid and that one-half of

all title insurance and other title company and related

fees be paid. The Board's action will require approval

by the Governor."



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

without dissenting vote that Mr. Humphrey's recommenda-

tion be approved by the Committee and in turn recommend-

ed to the Board for approval.



6. Orvis School of Nursing Building, Reno Campus



Intermediate plans for the new Orvis School of Nursing

building have been reviewed by the State Planning Board

and by Mr. Ed Pine. Mr. Pine recommended approval of

these intermediate plans, indicating that they would

probably be ready for final approval by August 3, and

further recommended that the Plant and Property Commit-

tee be authorized to approve plans and award contracts.



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

without dissenting vote that the intermediate plans be

approved and the Committee recommend to the Board that

the Plant and Property Committee be authorized to ap-

prove the final plans and award the contract for the

Orvis School of Nursing building.



President Armstrong reviewed for the Committee the

schedule of the Orvis School of Nursing building (a

construction contract must be let by September 30 in

order to qualify for the $389,118 Federal Grant) and

recommended that the following monies be transferred

from the funds indicated to the Orvis School of Nursing

Building Fund (1-91-3005) to provide the additonal

funds needed to meet the construction budget.



1-91-5000 Property Acquisition Fund $50,335.98

1-51-4119 W. E. Travis Grant 17,991.47

1-51-7002 Alice Dimmitt Endowment Income 8,524.38

1-51-7004 Hayden Ellicot Endowment Income 2,230.17

$79,082.00



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

without dissenting vote that the above fund transfer be

recommended to the Board for approval.



7. Request by Federal Aviation Agency



The FAA has requested permission of the Board to erect

a 30' wooden pole and reflector device on the NSU Campus

north of runway 19. This is an electronic device known

as a Moving Target Reflector.



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

without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board that permission be granted upon modification

of the agreement changing the date from July 12 to July

24 and insertion of a cancellation clause providing that

the Board of Regents may cancel the agreement with 30

days notice if the area is required for other use.



8. Progress and Information Report:



A. Nye Hall: Contract awarded and notice to proceed

issued. Completion date anticipated is November,

1966. Occupancy expected for Spring semester 1967.



B. Dining Hall - Dormitory Facility, NSU: Project is

being advertised for bids to be opened July 30 at

2:00 P.M. in Frazier Hall, NSU. A rather extensive

addendum to the bid documents is being issued but

this will not further delay the bids on the project.

A report will be ready by July 23 concerning the

architectural contract on this project and on the

second Dormitory at NSU (HHFA preliminary appli-

cation has been filed on this project).



Mr. Pine recommended upon opening of bids that

Administration be authorized to cancel contract of

Mr. Knighton, architect for this project, and that

the Physical Plant staff be authorized to perform

supervision of construction or the Administration

employ the services of another architect for the

supervision during construction. He further

recommended that the Administration negotiate

with Mr. Knighton for acquisition of plans.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried

without dissenting vote that the above recommendation

be approved.



C. Mr. Herbert Jones, Attorney-at-Law in Las Vegas, had

requested the University to join in a petition to

allow a change in lots on the Olympic Circle area

north of the NSU Campus. Mr. Pine has requested

that Mr. Jones submit a plot plan and indicate the

variance from the Clark County Planning Code. Mr.

Pine stated that Mr. Jones has not yet submitted a

plot plan.



D. New Mackay Stadium will not be available for the

1965 Football season; however, the construction

schedule on the Social Science building will not

interfere with the Fall use of the existing Stadium.



E. The DRI Water Resources building is 50% complete and

on schedule.



F. A scope of work for certain remodeling of Mackay

Science building has been furnished the State

Planning Board. Completion expected by first or

second week of Fall semester.



9. Sewer Line



Mr. Pine reviewed for the Committee their earlier action

in granting an easement to the City of Reno for the

installation of new sewer lines on the Campus, pointing

out that plans for the route of these lines had been

received and that the specifications had been written

requiring that any turf removed in the Stadium area

would be replaced by September 1.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried

without dissenting vote that the plans for the sewer

lines be approved.



10. Loan to Nevada Southern University Automated Food

Service Fund



Mr. Humphrey transmitted a request from Chancellor

Moyer for a loan to provide money to furnish a student

lounge in Room 108, Frazier Hall.



Mr. Humphrey presented the following recommendation,

with President Armstrong's endorsement:



"I recommend that up to $2,500 be loaned to 2-23-7001,

Automated Food Service from 1-51-4056, Board of Regents

Special Projects Fund for this purpose. The loan can

be repaid out of income earned by the profits of the

Automated Food Services Fund. In conformity with the

practice on the Reno Campus for such loans, interest of

3.5% on the unpaid balance should be charged. It is

possible that less than $2,500 will be required and only

the amount needed should be transferred."



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

without dissenting vote that the above recommendation

be approved.



11. Special Procedure for Certain Remodeling Contracts



Anticipating that the Board would not meet in August,

Mr. Humphrey requested that the Committee recommend to

the Board that the Administration be authorized to award

contracts, as follows:



1. Remodeling of certain basement areas in Mackay

School of Mines building.



2. Reworking of electrical service to the Nevada Bureau

of Mines.



3. Remodel Room 128, Fleischmann Agriculture building.



4. Construction of storage cabinets in the Admissions

Office.



5. Construction of costume storage for Fine Arts

Theatre.



6. NSU Automated Food Service.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried

without dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to

the Board that authorization be granted to the Admin-

istration to award the contracts as listed above.



12. Application to Office of Education Under Title I of the

Higher Education Facilities Act



President Armstrong requested the Committee recommend to

the Board the approval of submission of an application

for an allocation of $529,500 for use in the Library

addition for Nevada Southern University, under the pro-

vision of Title I, Section 104, Public Law 88-204. He

pointed out that upon approval by the Board of Regents

the State Commission should convene for purposes of

approving the application in order that it might be

transmitted to the Office of Education, Department of

Health, Education and Welfare prior to the July 31

deadline.



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

unanimously that submission of the application be

recommended to the Board.



13. Frandsen Gift



Dr. Anderson informed the Committee of a gift of approx-

imately $9,000 which will be received by the University

with no restrictions as to its use. Dr. Anderson sug-

gested that since the gift was from Dr. Peter Frandsen,

once Chairman of the Biology Department, the Committee

recommend to the Board that $5,000 be allocated to ob-

taining anatomical dissection apparatus for Biology

and the balance be devoted to equipment for the Labora-

tories for Human Development.



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

without dissenting vote that recommendations as

suggested by Dr. Anderson be presented to the Board.



The meeting adjourned at 12:05 P.M.

7. Progress Report, Building Program



The following report showing the status of capital improve-

ment projects of the University of Nevada under the juris-

diction of the Nevada State Planning Board was distributed

to the Board.



1. University of Nevada, Reno Campus



(a) Construction Projects



1. Physical Education Facilities, Contract II: As

of July 1, the project is 39.3% complete. At

present it appears that the contractor can meet

the scheduled completion date of October 20,

1965. This office has recommended to Mr. Ed

L. Pine, Sr. that the University not plan to

use the new Stadium during the 1965 football

season. Our recommendation was based on the

advice of the landscaping subcontractor who

indicated that the grass would not be suffic-

iently developed to withstand conference

football play. The design change from grass

tex to rubber asphalt on both the track and

in the field event areas also preclude immedi-

ate planting due to the fact that excessive

watering will hinder the installation of rub-

ber asphalt. The parking areas and additional

landscaping work are pending receipt of the

general obligation bond money which is pres-

ently anticipated to be received by the State

of Nevada the latter part of July.



2. Landscaping, Site Development, Engineering-

Mines Building and White Pine Hall: This proj-

ect has been satisfactorily completed.



3. Dormitory (Nye Hall): The offical starting

date for this project was July 19, 1965, and

the scheduled completion date is November 30,

1966.



(b) Design Projects



1. Social Science Building, Reno Campus: The

Architectural firm of Vhay and Ferrari is

completing final working drawings. Their

current estimate of the cost of the Social

Science building and Lecture building is

$1,404,184.00. The revised budget submitted

to Mr. Pine indicates a deficit of possibly

$20,000 in available funds if all contemplated

work is to be realized. The possibility of

eliminating the furniture budget has been

suggested in an endeavor to realize the Lecture

building addition which is currently programmed

to be an alternate.



2. Nursing Facility, University of Nevada, Reno

Campus: Architect is preparing final plans and

specifications which are estimated to be

received by the State Planning Board early in

August.



3. Remodel Science Labs: Bid documents are being

prepared based on the scope of work received by

this office on June 30, 1965. University

personnel are preparing the design for mechan-

ical and electrical portions of the work and

the State Planning Board's office is preparing

the architectural and contract documents. It

is unlikely at this time that all of the work

contemplated can be completed prior to the Fall

semester. The G. O. B. money for this work is

not yet available.



4. Land Acquisition, Purchase of Dormitory Land

and Purchase of Anelli Land: The acquisition

of these properties is dependent solely upon

the availability of State appropriated funds.



2. Nevada Southern University Projects



(a) Construction Projects



1. Social Science Building: Project has been

completed; furniture is being delivered.



(b) Design Projects



1. Landscaping: Mr. Robert Smutzer has developed

schematic plans and will review them with the

Regents.



2. Land Acquisition: The suggested acquisition of

the University Land Company property is pending

action by the Board of Regents.



3. Utilities for Dormitory: The following four

bids were received July 20:



Longley $24,019.00

Ben O'Davey 25,976.00

TAB Construction 27,000.00

Hansen Plumbing 41,775.00



The budget for this work was $25,000.00. It

was recommended to the State Planning Board

that a contract be awarded to Longley Con-

struction.



4. Addition to Library: Preliminary plans have

been submitted by the architect and they have

been reviewed by this office and the Univer-

sity staff. Subject to further study on sky-

lighting, balconies, murals and statutory exit

requirements, these plans have been approved

ments, these plans have been approved by the

Northern Executive Committee of the State

Planning Board. Mr. Mc Daniel will review them

with the Board of Regents.



5. Signal System: Final plans and specifications

are scheduled for completion on or about

August 15, 1965.



8. Report of the Development Committee Meeting of July 23, 1965



Mr. Ronzone presented the minutes of the meeting as follows:



The Development Committee met in the Travis Lounge of the

Student building on July 23, 1965. Present were Regents

Anderson, Davis, Hug, Jacobsen, Magee, Ronzone and White;

President Armstrong, Chancellors Miller and Moyer, Vice

President Humphrey, Mr. Russell and Mr. Laxalt. Regent

Lombardi entered the meeting at 4:00 P.M.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Ronzone at 3:30

P.M.



President Armstrong reviewed for the Committee the corre-

spondence and discussions which preceded this meeting and

the requirements of the University which make a long range

financial development program desirable. He explained that

final plans for such a program have by no means been formu-

lated to the point where a proposal is ready for considera-

tion. He stated that the purpose in requesting that this be

discussed by the Committee at this point was to determine

the true objective of such a program and invite suggestions

from the Regents as to how this program might best be tai-

lored to satisfy the requirements of the University of

Nevada.



After much discussion by all members of the Committee, it

was suggested that a consultant in such programs would be

very helpful and it was agreed that arrangements would be

made for such a conference before the next Regents meeting

on September 18.



The meeting adjourned at 4:30 P.M.



ACTION OF THE BOARD;



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Dr. White, carried unani-

mously that the report of the Development Committee be ac-

cepted by the Board.

Program (1964-65).



#293 $3000.00 from the Mackay Endowment Income Fund

(1-52-6010) to the Mackay Endowment Fund (1-71-6010)

for investment purposes (1964-65).



President Armstrong presented the following request from

Mr. Humphrey for transfer of funds with his recommendation

for approval:



"A total of $3,503.22 is required to provide the Univer-

sity's 1/9 matching for the Fall semester 1965, for the

Nursing and NDSL programs ($400.00 Nursing and $3,103.22

NDSL).



"I recommend that $3,503.22 be transferred from the Garvey

Rhodes Loan Fund (1-61-5006). As of June 30, 1965, this

fund has a loanable cash balance of $17,549.94 and $8785 of

loans outstanding for a total of $26,334.94 fund balance."



President Armstrong presented the following request from

Mr. Humphrey for transfer funds with his recommendation for

approval:



"Fund 1-51-4096, Centennial Musical Production, had receipts

of $6,950.00 by transfer from Board of Regents Special

Projects (1-51-4056). In October 1964, after the State

Centennial Commission was repaid, there was a cash balance

of $3,937.27 of which $2,350.00 was obligated by contract

for two graduate assistants, leaving an unobligated cash

balance of $1,587.27.



"You made the $1,587.27 available to the University Centen-

nial Committee to expend on items related to the Centennial

Celebration. In closing this account June 30, 1965, the

Comittee had over-expended by $112.49.



"I recommend that this deficit be cleared by a transfer of

$112.49 from 1-51-7001, Miscellaneous or Anonymous Endowment

Income (an unrestricted fund) and the Centennial Musical

Production Fund (1-51-4096) be closed."



Mr. Humphrey explained that due to a change in policy of the

State Department of Administration, the University has been

requested to charge all expenses for meal service to the

President's Host Account, 1-01-3005-126. To comply with

that request, he has asked that the following transfers be

approved:



#307 $282.00 from Ceremonials Committee, NSU to Presi-

dent's Host Account (1964-65).



#308 $238.67 from Ceremonials Committee, Reno to Presi-

dents' Host Account (1964-65).



#29 $450.00 from Board of Regents - In-State Travel to

President's Host Account (1965-66).



#30 $350.00 from Ceremonials Commitee, NSU to President's

Host Account (1965-66).



#31 $350.00 from Ceremonials Committee, Reno to Presi-

dent's Host Account (1965-66).



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

unanimously that the above fund transfers be approved.

14. Late Fee for Part-Time Students



The following request from the Director of Admissions was

presented by Mr. Humphrey with his recommendation that ef-

fective Fall registration, 1965, the fee for late registra-

tion be discontinued for special students registering for

six credits or less.



"With reference to the late registration fee for part-time

students (six credits or less), it would seem advisable that

a late fee should not be charged for the following reasons:



"1. The late fee has not been charged for late registration

in Evening Division.



"2. The late fee usually ends in a waiver for extended day

classes since the registrants are normally employed or

in a nonstudent status. The majority are teachers who

register whenever they can get sufficient time during

the late registration period.



"3. The regular fee of $15 per credit is sufficiently high

to make this differentiation from the students who pay

consolidated fees.



"4. This would enhance public relations tremendously when

compared to the small amount of money actually col-

lected, plus it would eliminate a lot of red tape."



President Armstrong has endorsed Mr. Humphrey's recommend-

ation and upon motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mrs. Magee,

it was unanimously voted to discontinue the late registra-

tion fee as described above.



15. Reappointment to Citizen's Advisory Committee for

Fleischmann College of Agriculture



President Armstrong presented the following request from

Dean Bohmont with his recommendation for approval:



"As you are aware, the Citizen's Advisory Committee of the

Max C. Fleischmann College of Agriculture consists of 15

members, the terms of five expiring each Commencement.

Since the group was organized only last year, the five

members who completed their term this June have hardly

had time to become more than well acquainted with the

College of Agriculture's program.



"I would like, therefore, to recommend that all five mem-

bers be reappointed for an additional three year term, 1965-

68. Their names and addresses are as follows:



Eyer Boies Contact

Norman Brown Smith (Plymouth Ranch)

Royal D. Crook Fallon (Crook Road)

Norman Glaser Halleck

Ray Knisley Lovelock (Big Meadow Ranch)



"Mr. Eyer Boies was appointed Chairman of the group for the

coming year, with Norman Brown Vice Chairman. The other

members who are being recommended for reappointment have

been active participants and are truly serving an important

function in guiding activities and programs of the College

of Agriculture."



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

unanimously that the above recommendation be approved.



16. Approval of Estimative Budgets



President Armstrong presented with his recommendation for

17. Amendment to Traffic Code



The following request from Mr. Humphrey was presented with

President Armstrong's recommendation for approval:



"On July 7, 1965 the Traffic and Parking Board voted to

request amendment of the new Traffic Code by designating

the present material in Article 4.04 as paragraph A and

adding the following paragraph.



"B. Permits will not be issued to vehicles or persons

having delinquent traffic citation fees."



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

unanimously that the above amendment to the Traffic Code

be approved.



18. Teenage Summer Training Program



President Armstrong reviewed for the Board the following

action taken by the Educational Policies Committee at a

meeting on February 16, 1965:



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

unanimously that the Committee recommend to the Board that

a contribution be made to the support of the Teenage Summer

Training Program for the Summer of 1965; this contribution

to be made from the Regents' Special Projects Fund and not

to exceed $5000.



President Armstrong pointed out that through an inadvertence

this action was not reported to the Board and therefore, the

action was never confirmed. He now recommended that the

Board approve the Committee's action.



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

roll call vote that the action of the Educational Policies

Committee at its meeting on February 26, 1965, concerning

the Teenage Summer Training Program be approved.



19. Next Meeting of the Board



Upon motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, it

was voted unanimously that no meeting of the Board be held

in August. The next regular meeting of the Board will be

September 18, 1965 on the Reno Campus with tentative dates

of October 23 and November 20 set for future meetings, the

latter meeting to be held in Las Vegas.



20. Dr. Lombardi proposed a resolution be adopted by the Board

of Regents commending Professor Alfred L. Higginbotham for

his long and selfless devotion to the University and to the

Department of Journalism and that his contribution to the

field of Journalism be recognized by designating his

Department as the Alfred L. Higginbotham Department of

Journalism.



Because this matter was not on the agenda, a motion by

Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried unanimously

that the matter be, nevertheless, placed before the Board

for discussion. It was determined in the discussion which

followed that such action concerning policy should first be

referred to the Administrative and Personnel Committee with

instructions to submit a report to the Board at its meeting

in September.



The meeting adjourned at 12:10 P.M.
