4. Building Committee Meeting



President Armstrong and Dr. Anderson discussed the minutes

as follows:



Meeting of the Building Committee of the

Board of Regents

July 25, 1963



A meeting of the Building Committee of the Board of Regents

was held in the Office of the President of the University

beginning at 7:15 P.M. on the above date. Vice Chairman

Lombardi presided. Other members of the Regents' Building

Committee present were: Mr. Germain, Mr. Jacobsen, Mr.

Hug, and in addition, Regents White and Magee. Mr. Grant

and Dr. Anderson entered the meeting later and Dr. Anderson

presided for the balance of the meeting. In addition, mem-

bers of the University staff were present as follows: Mr.

Humphrey, Mr. Rogers, Professor Mordy, President Armstrong.

Mr. Hancock represented the State Planning Board, and visi-

tors were Mr. Lowell Goff of the National Science Foundation

and Mr. Ed Parsons, architect.



1. The first part of the meeting was devoted to a discus-

sion with Mr. Lowell Goff concerning the possible par-

ticipation of the National Science Foundation in fund-

ing for certain buildings. Mr. Goff pointed out that

under the present policies of the NSF up to 50% for

the construction of research laboratory space, and re-

lated research facilities, is possible through grants

from the NSF for programs involving graduate and Ph. D.

work. Mr. Goff indicated that the NSF is considering

extending its funding program to include Baccalaureate

Programs in Science as well. Matching funds can be

made available for furnishings of research and related

space, for some site development, for divisional re-

search libraries, for seminar rooms and research of-

fices, etc.



Mr. Goff pointed out that NSF is organized in four

sections for this purpose:



1. Mathematics, Physics and Engineering

2. Chemistry and Earth Sciences

3. Plant and Animal Sciences

4. Behavioral Sciences



There was considerable discussion of the mechanics of

application, processing and funding. It was pointed

out that there is a possibility of such matching fund-

ing both for the Social Science and Physical Sciences

buildings, and also for possible rehabilitation of the

Mackay Science building. Mr. Rogers offered to make

arrangements for Mr. Goff to meet with interested mem-

bers of the faculty on the following day for further

discussions.



2. Engineer Rogers was requested to arrange a meeting with

the members of the State Planning Board and Regents'

Building Committee as soon as possible to discuss the

Engineering-Mines building deficiency list and other

matters.



3. Final plans for the Home Management Residence were

presented by Mr. Parsons, architect. After consider-

able and detailed discussion, by motion, which was

approved, the plans were accepted and recommended to

the Board of Regents for approval.



4. By motion, which was approved, it was agreed to recom-

mend to the Board of Regents the selection of the firm

of d'Autremont and Helms, Mechanical Engineers, to

serve as consultants for development of plans for the

Meat Laboratory, Main Station Farm. This is necessary

so that matching funds from the National Institutes of

Health may be sought to cover research aspects of this

building up to 1/2 of the total proposed expenditure.



5. By motion, which was approved, it was voted to recom-

mend to the Board of Regents, the retention of Jack

Knighton as architect for the Dining-Dormitory facil-

ity, Las Vegas Campus.



6. By motion, which was approved, it was voted to recom-

mend to the Board of Regents the retention of the firm

of Moffitt and Hendricks as architects for the Radio-

logical Laboratory facilities, Las Vegas Campus.



7. Mr. Rogers reported that HHFA has established certain

contingencies respecting the approval of the loan of

$2.4 million for the new Dormitory Project, Reno

Campus. These contingencies are first, that the proj-

ect should comprise two buildings rather than one,

(as has now been determined to be more economical)

because of the wording of the State legislation, and

secondly, that, in the interpretation of HHFA, the

Act limits the total expenditure, including furniture,

to $2.4 million. In view of the fact that the Univer-

sity will necessarily have to provide approximately

$160,000 for movable furniture, this will reduce the

total loan by that amount. It is not desirable that

this reduction should stand. In previous similar proj-

ects Attorney Generals' opinions have cleared the way

for elimination of these contingencies, and it was

agreed that Mr. Rogers should continue to work with

the Attorney General's Office to overcome these objec-

tions by HHFA.



8. Mr. Rogers presented a proposal to increase the size of

utilities service to Clark Administration building,

which would involve replacing present panels with 3-

phase power, and placing the service underground. This

would be a project funded by the State Planning Board.



By motion, which was approved, it was voted to recom-

mend to the Board of Regents approval of this project.



9. There was discussion of the proposed rezoning of the

East and West sides of North Virginia Street from Ninth

Street to the Orr Ditch, which President Armstrong had

previously indicated to the Regional Planning Commis-

sion, was opposed by the University. The State Plan-

ning Board also went on record in opposition of the

proposed rezoning to C-2. Previously, on July 11, 1961

the Board of Regents had expressed opposition to a sim-

ilar proposal, as being not in the best interests of

the University. It was also pointed out that, in any

case, the City and County Planning Boards have no auth-

ority to zone any University property, which would

include property on the East side of North Virginia

Street. After discussion the Building Committee voted

to recommend to the Board of Regents that continued

disapproval of the proposed change of zoning be trans-

mitted to the City Council and the County Planning

Commission.



10. The Committee received and reviewed a progress summary

of University projects dated July 18, 1963, provided

by the State Planning Board (below), and a progress

report of project reports under University supervision

as of the same date (below).



11. The Committee took note of a request from the State

Planning Board to the Regents to name an agent of the

Board to countersign all deeds for possible land ex-

changes involving the Las Vegas Campus. This action

will be taken at the Board meeting of July 26.



12. President Armstrong presented a request from Mr. Jack

Hunter, Chairman of the Elko Chamber of Commerce, for

further consideration by the Board of Regents of devel-

opment of a vocational-technical institute on the Elko

property recently given to the University. Mr. Hunter,

in effect, requested the Regents to consider first, a

decision to locate the facility on the Elko property,

and secondly, a decision to seek funds for operation

and capital expenditures in the next session of the

Legislature. It was noted that such action at this

time would undoubtedly be premature for a number of

reasons: first, that it is considered desirable for

the University to have some experience in operating a

technical-vocational institute program through exist-

ing facilities, under the direction of Statewide Serv-

ices, before deciding upon a separate location; and

secondly, that the last session of the State Legisla-

ture directed Mr. John Bunton of the State Department

of Vocational Education to conduct a complete survey of

vocational and technical needs in the State, including

post high school training, and to present this report

to the next session of the Legislature. Pending the

outcome of such a survey, in which Mr. Bunten will co-

operate closely with the University, it is believed

that no action should be taken at this time.



The meeting adjourned at 10:20 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,

Charles J. Armstrong

Acting Secretary



The Regents discussed the information which Mr. Goff of the

National Science Foundation had given to the Building Com-

mittee regarding funding of buildings, as per minutes of the

meeting. It was agreed that, at the proper time, applica-

tion should be made to the National Science Foundation for

matching funds, wherever applicable.



A meeting requested by the Planning Board to discuss the

University deficiency list for the Engineering-Mines build-

ing was discussed. Mr. Rogers reported that he has such a

list and has been trying to work with the Planning Board

but that agency is taking the stand that the building is

complete as is. It was agreed that Mr. Rogers arrange a

meeting of the Regents' Building Committee and himself with

members of the Planning Board to determine whether or not

the building is to be considered complete and to discuss

the importance of the list.



Home Management House plans had been presented to the Build-

ing Committee and were again here discussed, especially as

to the scope of activities to be carried on in the building.

President Armstrong recommended approval of final plans.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Dr. White, carried

unanimously that the final plans be accepted for the Home

Management House.



Dr. Anderson discussed the action of the Committee that a

consultant be employed for design of the Meat Laboratory,

Main Station Farm. President Armstrong recommended the firm

of d'Autremont and Helms, as proposed by the faculty in-

volved.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Dr. White, carried

unanimously that the Administration be instructed to proceed

with the plans for the Meat Laboratory, to seek matching

funds from the National Institutes of Health, and to employ

the firm of d'Autremont and Helms as consultants.



Selection of architect for the Dormitory-Dining Project in

Las Vegas was discussed.



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

mously that the Board approve the recommendation of the

Building Committee that Jack Knighton be selected as archi-

tect for the project.



In regard to architect for the Radiological Laboratory fa-

cility in Las Vegas, it was noted that the government people

working on the project had preliminary work done by Moffitt

and Hendricks at government expense. Since they are there-

fore already familiar with the project and also are satis-

factory, the Committee had recommended their retention.



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

unanimously that the firm of Moffitt and Hendricks be em-

ployed as architects for Radiological Laboratory addition.



Word has been received from Housing and Home Finance Agency

that the loan for the Dormitory to be constructed on ceme-

tery property has its approval. Two contingencies were

placed by HHFA on the approval of the application and these

were discussed by the Regents. The President has been in

touch with the Office of the Attorney General, and his ad-

vice is that the University can go ahead with one building

instead of two for economy of land and money. The Univer-

sity will provide $160,000 for furnishings from sources

other than the loan.



Mr. Rogers reported that money had been received from the

Legislature for site development and utility extensions.

Some years ago temporary service was installed overhead

from Clark Administration building to the Electrical Vault

#6. There is now need to put the lines underground and

replace power panels in the building.



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

mously that the Administration be authorized to request the

Planning Board to let bids on the project to provide in-

crease in service to Clark Administration building.



Copy of a letter from the Manager of the State Planning

Board to the Regional Planning Commission had been received

which notified the Commission that the University opposes

the change of land use district from C-1a to C-2 on both

sides of North Virginia Street between Ninth Street and

the Orr Ditch. The Regents discussed this and other zonings

and it was thought that there might be another (newer) zon-

ing which would be more favorable. Mr. Rogers was asked to

get further information before action is taken.



Mr. Rogers distributed the following progress reports which

had been presented to the Building Committee:



University Projects under State Planning Board:

The State Planning Board has requested authorization from

the Board for sale and exchange of property on Flamingo Road

and asked that the Board designate a member to sign all the

deeds pertaining to the transaction.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried

unanimously that either Chairman Grant or Vice Chairman

Lombardi be authorized to sign the deeds.



The question was raised as to whether this land is in the

name of the Board of Regents or the State of Nevada. An

examination of the Statutes revealed that there may be a

conflict in wording, and Mr. Finnegan was asked to study

the matter further. After examination of the Statutes, Mr.

Finnegan reported that ownership is vested in the State of

Nevada, but that the responsibility is with the Board of

Regents. Mr. Finnegan offered to check the wording in the

deeds, and it was agreed that he do so.



Correspondence with Mr. Jack Hunter, President of the Elko

Chamber of Commerce, was discussed in which request was made

that the University consider a technical College for Elko on

the land which has been donated to it. President Armstrong

reported that at the last session of the Legislature, Mr.

John Bunten of the State Vocational Education Department was

directed to make a study on the subject of vocational-tech-

nical education in the entire State, including the post high

school level, and report at the next session.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

unanimously that the Elko Chamber of Commerce be informed

that the Regents have studied their request and will give

it further consideration, but that no action is possible at

this time in view of the study by Mr. Bunten.



Mr. Rogers further discussed the zoning proposal with use

of an up-to-date Supplementary Land Use Classification.

Previously, zoning was maintained at its then present zone

after much discussion with the Planning Commission.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously that the President be instructed to protest the

change from C-1a to C-2, that he make the necessary peti-

tion for rezoning the area to R-3, and request that the

University be represented at any hearings on the matter.

not now be available. Until the time when qualified

student from other fields may be selected.



The Scholarship Committee at Nevada Southern shall

select the recipient using the following guides:

students at Nevada southern who will be in full-time

attendance at Nevada Southern for the following

academic year as a Senior student. The scholarship

will be open to both men and women.



3. Since it is the intention of the donors to recognize

good scholarship, and enable a student to maintain

good scholarship through financial assistance, the

recipient must have a record of high scholastic

attainment.



4. One-half of the award will be paid following regis-

tration for the Fall semester; the second half will

be paid following the successful completion of the

Fall semester and registration for the Spring

semester.

Budgets previously considered.



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

unanimously that the Estimative Budgets be approved as

presented.



7. Interview Expenses



The President presented the recommendation from Mr.

Humphrey to modify the present procedure. Mr. Humphrey

discussed the current system, which he said had not worked

well. The Office of the Attorney General has approved the

been within the purview of the Board of Regents. President

Armstrong recommended approval of the proposed procedure and

the form as follows:

Office of the President.



2. Upon approval by the President all copies shall be sent

to the Accounting Department, Office of the Business

Manager. If funds are not avilable in the account des-

ignated by the Dean or Director, the forms will be re-

turned to the Office of the President with the fact

it is assumed that all preliminary paper work (appli-

cation form, reference checks, etc.) has been com-

pleted on this applicant prior to transmission of

this form to the President.



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

unanimously that the proposal and form for handling inter-

view expenses be approved.



8. Student Fees



President Armstrong recommended the following changes in

student fees to be effective June 1, 1964, as proposed by

Mr. Humphrey, after consultation with various members of

the administrative staff:



1. Increase the Application Fee from $5 to $10.



2. Discontinue the present Record Fee of $5.



3. Lower the Graduate Student registration fee for

Nevada students registered for 7 or more credits

from $115 to $100 per semester.



4. Lower the Graduate Student registration fee for

Nevada students registered for 6 credits or less

from $16 per credit to $15 per credit.



5. Lower the Graduate Student registration fee for

non-residents from $115 (plus $300 tuition) to

$100 (plus $300 tuition) in conformity with #3

above.



6. Discontinue determination of residency for students

registering for 6 credits or less and charge $15

per credit for both Undergraduate and Graduate Stu-

dents. This would reduce the charge for non-resi-

dent Undergraduates from $30 to $15 per credit and

for non-resident Graduate Students from $32 to $15

per credit.



Further recommendation that: (1) account 41-4012,

Transcript Sales, be discontinued; (2) a revenue account

titled "Transcript Fees" be established in Fund No. 1;

and (3) the balance of 41-4012 ($13,313 on June 20,

1963) be closed to Surplus, Fund No. 1. The approxi-

mately $4600 annual income of this account will further

offset any revenue loss which may result from the fee

changes recommended above.



Mr. Humphrey discussed the recommendation, and explained

that revenue gained on the higher application fee will sub-

sequently offset the loss from other reductions.



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

unanimously that the recommendations above be approved.



9. Allocations from Contingency Reserve



Dr. Armstrong explained that when budgets cuts were made,

the Deans and Directors were told that if an emergency

existed, they could request a supplementary allocation.

These requests were received and reviewed, and as a result

the following transfers were recommended for approval by

President Armstrong:

10. Centennial Musical Production



Referring to action of the Board on March 23, 1963, when

University participation in the State Centennial was ap-

proved in principle, Dr. Armstrong referred to a memorandum

from Dr. Young following through with details of the pro-

posed University's participation in a musical production.

A working sub-committee has been established to plan and

carry out this event. Professor Williams and an associate

are engaged in writing of the book, music and lyrics of the

musical presentation with a theme and setting appropriate

to a centennial celebration. The budget for salaries which

was approved by the University Committee amounts to approx-

imately $2000. In addition, released time for faculty mem-

bers and arrangements for carrying the class work would cost

$4950 for the two academic years. Total cost of the pro-

duction is estimated at $12,775 of which the University

would pay $6,950 (as stated above) and the Centennial Com-

mission would pay the balance. President Armstrong recom-

mended that the Regents authorize the sum of $6950 from the

Board of Regents Special Projects Fund for this purpose.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the project be approved

as presented and that the sum of $6950 be authorized from

the Board of Regents Special Projects Fund for the purpose.



The Board recessed at 12:00 noon for luncheon in the Dining

Commons.



The recessed meeting was called to order at 1:35 P.M. by the

Chairman.



11. Jot Travis Student Union Capital Improvement Reserve Fund



President Armstrong discussed a memorandum from Mr. Humphrey

proposing the creation of a Jot Travis Student Union Capital

Improvement Reserve Fund. He reviewed the situation as fol-

lows, and noted that the proposed policy was approved by

the ASUN Finance Board on January 8, 1963.



On October 27, 1950 the Board of Regents approved a re-

quest of the Associated Students of the University of

Nevada that they be authorized to establish a University

Bookstore "as a project of the Associated Students...".

On January 12, 1951 the Board of Regents directed that

the "net profits (of the Bookstore) shall go into a

student union building fund and any deviation shall be

subject to the approval of the (A. S. U. N.) Board of

Finance Control, the Alumni Executive Committee and

the President of the University."



The Bookstore, to date, has not paid their net profits

into a building fund but has repaid the loans which en-

abled A. S. U. N. to purchase the store, acquired stock

and purchased fixtures.



When the Jot Travis Student Union was built, the Book-

store moved into the Union building, occupying approx-

imately 3000 square feet of space, and has been paying

$2700 per year rent, or $.90 per square foot per year.

This rent has been paid to the Student Union Board

which has been responsible for utilities and janitor-

ial supplies in the Bookstore area.



On January 31, 1963, Mr. Thomas A. Seeliger, A. S. U. N.

First Vice President, wrote stating that "...it is the

interest and desire of the Associated Students, with

the approval of the Board of Regents, that future sur-

pluses may accrue to be used for the expansion of the

present Union and Bookstore facilities."



Mr. Seeliger's letter was referred to Vice President

Young and Mr. Humphrey for review and recommendation.

The A. S. U. N. Finance Control Board, the Student

Union Board, Dr. Young, Dean Basta, Bob Kersey and Mr.

Humphrey all worked on the problem.



He recommended that upon occupancy of the expanded

facilities all using agencies of the Jot Travis Student

Union:



1. Pay $.25 per square foot per year to U. N. Fund

No. 1 to be deposited as an offset to the appro-

priate utility expenditure accounts in the Build-

ings and Grounds budget.



2. Pay $.20 per square foot per year to the "Jot

Travis Student Union Capital Improvement Fund".

This fund shall:



a. Be invested by the Business Manager within the

policy control of the Board of Regents and in-

vestment income shall accrue to the fund.



b. Be expended at some future date with the approv-

al of the Board of Regents for improvement or

expansion of the Jot Travis Student Union build-

ing and after consultation with the A. S. U. N.

Board of Finance Control and the Student Union

Board.



3. Each using agency continue to be responsible for

its own janitorial services.



He further recommended that this payment be reviewed

annually with the objective of determining the adequacy

of the utility payment and the feasibility of increasing

the rate of payment to the Capital Improvement Reserve

Fund.



This rate would result in the following payments for

one year.



Student Union Board Square Feet 17,825*

.25 Utility Rate 4,456.25

.20 Reserve Fund 3,565.00

Total $8,021.25



Snack Bar Square Feet 4,774

.25 Utility Rate 1,193.50

.20 Reserve Fund 954.80

Total $2,148.30



Bookstore Square Feet 6,605

.25 Utility Rate 1,651.25

.20 Reserve Fund 1,321.00

Total $2,972.25



Health Service Square Feet 2,765

.25 Utility Rate 691.25

.20 Reserve Fund 553.00

Total $1,244.25



Total Square Feet 31,969

.25 Utility Rate 7,992.25

.20 Reserve Fund 6,393.80

Total $14,386.05



*Includes various student activity offices, including

A. S. U. N.



The total Bookstore rental for 6605 square feet will be

approximately the same as it now is for 3000 square

feet. Use of this reduced rate per square foot will

enable the Bookstore to purchase stock and fixtures to

fully utilize their new space without the necessity of

borrowing money from A. S. U. N. or elsewhere.



He further recommended that no change in present rental

rate for the Booksotre or method of payment be effected

until the expanded facilities are occupied.



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

unanimously that the recommendations be approved and that

the Jot Travis Student Union Capital Improvement Fund be

established, as recommended.

13. University of Nevada Press



President Armstrong presented with his recommendation for

approval a proposed co-publishing agreement between the

University of Nevada Press and the University of California

Press. Mr. Laxalt discussed the agreement. If approved by

the Board of Regents, the agreement will be submitted to the

Administration and Regents of the University of California

for final approval. Duration will be until such time as the

University of Nevada Press has the facilities to handle the

commercial aspects of book publishing, but the agreement can

be terminated upon the request of either Institution. The

State Printer cannot handle this type of production and has

assured Mr. Laxalt that the State Printer is free, under

Attorney General's opinion, to give permission to go out of

State for publication. Such authorization has been received

by the University.



Terms of the agreement are as follows:



1. University of California Press to manufacture, promote,

warehouse and distribute all University of Nevada Press

titles. (This will entail actual procedure of seeing a

book through the printing process, storing what is a

considerable investment under terms specified later,

using University of California's Press wide promotional

media, distribution of books to bookstores and direct

mailing lists to selected audiences, billing and ac-

counting procedures.)



2. Imprint: University of Nevada Press

Distributed by University of California Press



3. University of Nevada Press to pay all manufacturing and

promotional costs for 1st printing and reprints. (This

includes newspaper and magazine advertisements, promo-

tional circulars.)



4. All University of Nevada Press manuscripts to be edited

by University of Nevada Press staff. (This includes

presenting finished manuscripts to University of Cali-

fornia Press, preparation of frontal material, relays

of proof copy to authors, etc.)



5. Division of sales income: 30% of list price to Univer-

sity of California Press; balance of income to Univer-

sity of Nevada Press. (For example, if a University of

Nevada Press book sells for $10, University of Nevada

Press will get $7 and University of California Press $3

on a direct mail purchase. On sales to bookstores,

where a 40% discount is standard, University of Nevada

Press and University of California Press would each get

$3.)



6. University of California Press to manufacture and dis-

tribute circulars to University of Nevada Press books.

Promotional schedules to be prepared jointly by Univer-

sity of Nevada Press and University of California Press.

All copy for University of Nevada Press books to be pro-

vided by University of Nevada Press. No University of

Nevada Press titles to be included in University of

California Press catalogues. (This last item would

lead to confusion. In time, we will have our own cat-

alogues.)



7. All University of Nevada Press stock to be retained in

University of California Press warehouses for 12 months

after publication. Bulk of stock older than 12 months

to go to University of Nevada Press. University of Cal-

ifornia Press to pay for any stock transfers between

Richmond and New York, and for stock brought back from

Reno to Richmond or New York. University of Nevada

Press to pay for transportation from Richmond to Reno

or from binders to Reno. (I have made tentative ar-

rangements with the State Printing Office for such stor-

age as is included above.)



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Dr. White, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that agreement be approved.



14. Legislative Budget Cuts



President Armstrong had asked Mr. Laxalt to study the pro-

posal that the University publish a brochure setting forth

the effects of the budget cuts by the Legislature on the

program of the University. Regent Jacobsen distributed an

outline of a proposed brochure, which suggested including

the areas of Faculty (salaries, fringe benefits), Physical

Plant (need for increase facilities to meet increased en-

rollment), Equipment (what has had to be abandoned due to

budget cuts), and Maintenance (postponed because of lack of

funds, more costly at a later date). Mr. Jacobsen suggested

that the Regents give further thought to the proposal based

on his suggestions and on Mr. Laxalt's views. Mr. Laxalt

discussed a radio and television campaign along the same

lines, which has already been started. He also suggested

that prior to the opening of the legislative session, the

members be invited to visit the Campus. President Armstrong

concurred, and the Regents agreed to discuss the entire

matter at future meetings of the Board.



15. Courses for Superior High School Students



President Armstrong had distributed copies of a letter from

Dean Carlson concerning the earlier action of the Board per-

mitting selected high school seniors of Clark County to reg-

ister as special non-matriculated students for College level

courses during their senior year. The provision was that

high school seniors be permitted to register for not more

than one course per semester, with a total limitation of

six to eight semester credits for the academic year. It

has now become apparent that a number of such high school

seniors are capable of carrying College class work in excess

of this restriction. The Clark County District has initiat-

ed an "accelerated student program" which results in addi-

tional credits during their high school period. Thus, by

the time they become seniors they have credits in excess of

the requirements for graduation and could have additional

time for additional study. Dean Carlson proposed that this

restriction be modified in view of the above circumstances,

and that high school seniors selected for this program be

permitted to register for a maximum of six credits per sem-

ester as any non-matriculated student is permitted. Such

permission is to be granted to the individual student on

the basis of the recommendation of his Principal and the

Nevada Southern High School Senior Program Committee. The

students' high school program and proposed College program

would be weighed on an individual basis and permission

granted accordingly. President Armstrong recommended ap-

proval of the program which had previously been approved by

the Academic Council to be extended to all school districts.



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

mously that the proposal as above stated be approved, not

only for Clark County, but for other school districts in

the State.



16. Operational Autonomy, Nevada Southern



Dr. White brought up the subject for discussion, pointing

out that this item was included in the report of the Faculty

Educational Planning Committee. She suggested the Board

follow through on the recommendations for Nevada Southern,

including operational autonomy within the University. She

further proposed that a continuing Faculty Committee work

on future planning for the entire University. Dr. Armstrong

replied that the matter is now under study by the University

Council and the Academic Council and recommendations will be

forthcoming as to the scope that such a continuing committee

ought to take. He also pointed out that most of the recom-

mendations in the report have already been put into effect

for Nevada Southern, including internal autonomy in the

management of its own proper affairs, as is true of all

other Colleges of the University. A separate catalogue for

Nevada Southern is planned for the 1966-68 issue.



17. Wildlife Area, Charleston Mountains



Copies of a letter from Dean Carlson and a memo from Dr.

J. E. Deacon, Assistant Professor of Biology at Nevada

Southern, to the Dean were distributed to the Regents and

discussed by Dr. Armstrong. The correspondence proposed

that the University try to establish a natural history res-

ervation or wildlife area in the Charleston Mountains -- to

permanently set aside the area in its natural state as a

unique research tract in what is commonly called Wallace

Canyon area. There was discussion as to whether or not

there might be grazing and mining interests at present in

this area, and it was Mr. Finnegan's advice that the Univer-

sity, if it is interested, make application to the Bureau

of Land Management; if there are other uses, the University

would be notified. Mrs. Magee favored applying for the area

for multiple use, so that if it is being used for mining and

grazing, they would be permitted to continue.



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

Regents Davis and Magee voting "no" and all other Regents

voting "aye", that the Administration be authorized to make

formal request for reservation of this land to the Bureau

of Land Management, submitting supporting material and

including the map.



18. Group Insurance



President Armstrong reported on the group insurance plan

which is being provided for State employees. This plan,

with Aetna Life Insurance Company, was worked out by a State

Committee on Group Insurance, of which Dean Weems was a mem-

ber, in keeping with legislation of last session (Chapter

470 of 1963 Statutes). The State provides matching funds

of $3 per month for each full time employee, effective

September 1, 1963 for those on the payroll as of July 1.

Those who start after that date must wait six months before

they can participate.



The meeting recessed at 3:35 P.M., until the following morning.



The recessed meeting was called to order by the Chairman at 9:35

A.M. All Regents were present, also Dr. Young, Mr. Humphrey and

reporters Dromiack and Hurschberger.



19. President's Chair



Regent Anderson presented a chair to Dr. Armstrong which was

used by the first President of the University, Le Roy D.

Brown, and his successor, Joseph Edward Stubbs. President

Stubbs turned it over to Carl Horn, then Assistant to the

Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds, who renovated the

chair. Through the efforts of Dr. Alan Roche of Sparks and

Mr. Horn, Dr. Anderson was able to make the presentation.



20. Assistant to the President



As previously discussed by the Regents, President Armstrong

reported that he had located an individual to assist him

in the long-range financial program of the University. If

this is agreeable with the Regents, President Armstrong

asked that he be given authority to proceed.



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

unanimously that the President be authorized to proceed with

the employment of a suitable individual as Assistant to the

President to assist in the financial program of the Univer-

sity.



Dr. Anderson left the meeting at this point to take care of other

business.



21. Dean Dale Bohmont of the College of Agriculture had been

asked to meet with the Regents to discuss the Educational

Planning Committee report as it pertains to his area. He

explained certain changes in organization to reduce admin-

istrative overhead, particularly streamlining and combining

of Departments to better facilitate the aims of the College

-- research, teaching and extension. Some changes have also

been made in some quarters to bring related areas closer

together. Dean Bohmont stated that they are working on

closer cooperation between his people and other divisions

of the University. He discussed the Newlands Field Station

at Fallon and explained plans for tying it more closely to

the work of the College, especially the Experiment Station.

He discussed special Federal funds which are coming to the

University for Agriculture and how he is preparing for their

best utilization.



22. Dean James T. Anderson of the College of Engineering had

also been asked to meet with the Regents to discuss the

report of the Educational Planning Committee. He stressed

training in fundamentals for Engineering students, rather

than specific fields, because the students fit into the

present market better. He also discussed the decrease in

enrollment in Colleges of Engineering and gave his thoughts

on the reasons, saying also that he planned to work to try

to increase interest and consequent enrollment in Engineer-

ing. He further reported that he has started the Department

Chairmen to work on planning in their own Departments. He

discussed the proposed five-year curriculum for Engineering

students and believed that it would "price the field out of

the market". He preferred a curriculum stressing funda-

mentals which could be completed in four years.



23. Desert Research Institute



Professor Mordy has been invited to discuss progress in the

Desert Research Institute in the three years since its be-

ginning. He read a prepared report and used slides to

visualize the growth in faculty, projects, financial sup-

port, etc., of the Desert Research Institute. He reported

that the first year the Institute operated entirely on gift

money; the second year some appropriated money was budgeted.

Fleischmann grant funds provided for significant amounts of

equipment and for recruitment of personnel. As for re-

search emphasis, Mr. Mordy has tried to build up certain

fields especially adapted to this area. Support for the

Desert Research Institute from gifts, grants, State and

County funds, now amounts to more than $3 million. He

pointed out that for every dollar of University funds ex-

pended on DRI programs, the University realizes $8.62 in

matching funds from Federal and private grants.



Professor Mordy then discussed the Summer Science Training

Program in Atmospheric Physics, attended by 40 high school

students selected from all over the United States on grades,

aptitude, interest in research, etc. He also showed films

of the construction of the Atmospherium building.



The meeting adjourned at 12:30 P.M.



The next meeting of the Board was set for Saturday, September 21,

1963 in Reno.
