Caryl Chessman Memorial Scholarship



Dr. Armstrong received checks (amount $100 and $25) from the

Scholarship Fund Record Company, Inc., Fontana, California,

which had been mailed to Nevada Southern and forwarded by

Dean Carlson, "for the Caryl Chessman Memorial Scholarship

Fund for Creative Citizenship". The matter was referred to

Dr. Mc Queen, Chairman of the Faculty Committee on Scholar-

ships, Prizes and Grants-in-Aid, for recommendation. Dr.

Mc Queen replied that "Board acceptance of this award, as

well as its subsequent presentation, would bring about some

identification of the University of Nevada with the various

emotional reactions set into motion by the case of Caryl

Chessman." Dr. Mc Queen urged careful consideration of

public reaction and the reaction of recipients and other

donors before decision is reached. Dr. Armstrong recommend-

that the Board decline to accept the checks to establish

the scholarship as named (above).



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

unanimously that the "Caryl Chessman Memorial Scholarship

Fund for Creative Citizenship" not be accepted as named.



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

unanimously that the other gifts be accepted and that the

Secretary write a note of thanks to the donors.



4. Tyson Resignation



Mr. Grant read a letter from Mr. William S. Tyson in which

he reported his resignation as Regent of the University of

Nevada.



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

unanimously that this be made a matter of record in the

minutes, and that the Secretary write a note to Mr. Tyson

expressing the appreciation of the Board for his services.



It was noted that Governor Sawyer has appointed Mr. Weld

Arnold of Carson City to replace Mr. Tyson.



5. Jackling Endowment



The Will of D. C. Jackling provides that when the account

is over $100,000 the excess may be used for "the educational

activities ... including (but not limited to) scholarships"

of the Mackay School of Mines. The D. C. Jackling Endowment

account (71-5016) now has a balance of $143,753.61. There

have been no loans from the account. Mr. Humphrey proposed,

and Dr. Armstrong recommended that the Board of Regents es-

tablish a D. C. Jackling Endowment Fund #2, which will con-

tain as a principal amount $43,753.61; to which could be

added by re-investment the annual unused income from the

D. C. Jackling Endowment Funds #1 and #2. The income from

this second fund (D. C. Jackling Endowment Fund #2) would be

available to the Mackay School of Mines and could be trans-

ferred, upon their direction, to a special fund to be used

"upon the advice of the faculty" for "Educational activi-

ties" of the School.



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

unanimously that the recommendation to establish a D. C.

Jackling Endowment Fund #2, as stated above, be approved.



6. Business Office Informal Report



Mr. Humphrey distributed copies of "Balance Sheet and

Analysis of Surplus June 30, 1961" and discussed the report.

Final statement will be mailed to the Regents the middle of

August so that they may study it prior to the September

meeting of the Board. The sum of $563,000, which has been

in operating cash balance, has been put into interest-bear-

ing bonds. The statement showed a Deficit in the Surplus

account of $21,379.05, which represents the balance after

closing an outstanding Board of Athletic Control receivable

of $50,812.61, (dating back to 1949) and eliminating the

deficit balance of July 1, 1960 ($77,845.85). The Board

noted that the University's current financial position is

the strongest in many years.



In accord with instruction of the Board of Regents, as of

July 1, 1961, the bond of Mr. Humphrey and Mr. Hattori was

increased to $100,000 and all other employees of the Uni-

versity are now covered for $10,000. Bonding is with

Hartford Fire Insurance Company Group. Mr. Humphrey pre-

sented evidence of issuance of the bond.



Development of deposit collateral agreements with the local

banks is in process. An agreement with First National Bank

of Nevada has been approved by the Attorney General and is

now in effect. The Nevada Bank of Commerce has issued a

new agreement for our review which pledges an amount equal

to 110% of the deposit. The Security National Bank is in

process of drawing up an agreement.



7. Transfer of Budgeted Funds



President Armstrong presented the following requests, recom-

mended by the Business Manager, and recommended approval:



From Mathematics, Salaries to Data Processing

unanimously by roll call vote that the transfer of funds

be approved.

Scholarships - $300 to transfer Governor Egan's honorarium

for the 1961 Commencement address to scholarship as request-

ed by Governor Egan.

laneous Revenues, Reno - $2,625 which is the balance of an

obligation established at the beginning of the past fiscal

year.

9. Library Building Equipment



Mr. Crumley discussed the procedure in securing bids for

building equipment and the part the Regents should have in

such procedures, especially in connection with the new

Library building. He was of the opinion that the Regents

should be included before acceptance of the final bid, be-

cause it is the Regents who are considered responsible if

inferior equipment is secured. Mr. Hancock of the State

Planning Board, which agency will call for bids, suggested

that the Regents approve the specifications prior to bid.

The Regents felt however that this does not solve the

problem. It was agreed that it is important for the Regents

to see samples before equipment bids are awarded, especially

when the expenditure is for a large amount. Mr. Hancock

offered to include in the bid notice a statement that sam-

ples must be made available to the Regents upon request.

There was further discussion by the Regents, bearing out

the point taken by Mr. Crumley.



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

unanimously that the Board authorize the Regents' Building

Committee to act for the Board in the matter of furnishings

for the Getchell Library with the stipulation that they may

request the suppliers, or bidders, to furnish samples prior

to acceptance of bid.



10. Regents' Building Committee Meeting



Dr. Anderson read and discussed the minutes of the meeting

of the Building Committee held on July 27, 1961, as follows:



Minutes of the Meeting of the Building Committee

of the Board of Regents

July 27, 1961



The Building Committee of the Board of Regents met in the

conference room of the Student Union building at 12:30 P.M.

on the above date. Present: Regents Anderson, Chairman,

and Lombardi; Mr. Rogers, Dr. Young and President Armstrong.



1. Radiological Laboratory



President Armstrong reported on recommendations from

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in regard to the proposed

expansion of Radiological Laboratory facilities on the

Nevada Southern Campus. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

recommended that additional facilities be laid out on

an east-west axis rather than the north-south axis ori-

ginally proposed. The Skidmore, Owings & Merrill rec-

ommendation was approved and is to be recommended to

the Board of Regents.



2. Projects at Nevada Southern



Dr. Anderson read a progress report from Mr. Hancock,

Secretary-Manager of the State Planning Board, relative

to projects under construction at the Nevada Southern

Campus.



3. Projects at the Reno Campus



Dr. Anderson read a progress report from Mr. Hancock

relative to projects under construction at the Reno

Campus.



4. Men's and Women's Dormitories



Mr. Rogers reported that the State Planning Board wish-

ed to know if the University wanted the Board to assist

in the planning and construction of the new Dormitories

to be financed through HHFA. (Legislation left this

decision to the University.) This is to be discussed

at the Board of Regents' meeting.



5. Radiac Calibrator



President Armstrong reported that the University has

been offered a radiac calibrator. It was agreed that

the Committee would recommend that the University

should indicate its willingness to accept this gift,

with the understanding that the calibrator cannot be

received until an adequate location has been deter-

mined. Dean Blodgett and Mr. Rogers are to serve as

a committee to work out details.



6. Policy on Naming Buildings and Streets



President Armstrong read a proposed policy on the nam-

ing of buildings and streets. Chairman Anderson is to

take under study this and other suggestions. Students

may be asked to submit suggestions.



7. Zoning Problems



President Armstrong reported on recent efforts to have

properties adjacent to the Campus rezoned. One of

these matters is scheduled to come before the City

Council on August 14. Members of the committee were

asked to attend and represent the University, if pos-

sible. The desirability of acquiring certain of these

properties for the University was discussed.



8. Seventh Street Freeway



President Armstrong reported that if the Seventh Street

Freeway route were adopted, it would cross the Valley

Road Farm. Mr. Porter has been asked to study the

legality of the State condemning its own property, es-

pecially property carrying special restrictions as to

use. This matter is to be discussed at the next meet-

ing of the Board of Regents.



9. Temporary Buildings



Mr. Rogers reported that Governor Sawyer, at the urg-

ing of Mr. Zappetini, has requested that the University

make a gift of two temporary buildings to the State

Department of Forestry. The buildings are not now be-

ing used by the University and no future use is contem-

plated. They had to be moved to make space for the new

Engineering building. The committee agreed to recom-

mend that the State Department of Forestry be given the

temporary buildings requested.



10. Mc Leod Property



President Armstrong pointed out that the Episcopal

Church has not yet been informed as to the University's

position regarding their offer of an exchange of land

at Nevada Southern. It was agreed that Skidmore,

Owings & Merrill should be asked to study this propos-

al to determine how this exchange might affect the

Master Plan.



11. Sub-Station



Mr. Rogers reported that Sierra Pacific Power has

asked permission to establish a power sub-station on

a small piece of Campus land across Evans Avenue.

The committee agreed to recommended approval of this

request.



12. Power Distribution



Mr. Rogers presented a proposed power distribution plan

for Nevada Southern. The committee agreed to recommend

approval.



13. Urban Renewal



Mr. Rogers reported that it might be possible for

the University to make use of urban renewal funds to

acquire new land needed for expansion of the Campus.

He is planning to investigate this and will report

back to the committee.



/s/ Kenneth E. Young

Acting Secretary



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

unanimously that the recommendation regarding expansion

of the Radiological Laboratory facilities on the Nevada

Southern Campus on an east-west axis be approved (item 1).



Letter was received from the State Planning Board informing

the Regents that they are proceeding with preparation for

bids for furnishings for the Science and Technology building

and the construction and installation of utilities at Nevada

Southern. The Library building in Las Vegas is ready to go

to bid and the date has been set for August 27 at 2:00 P.M.



A letter was also received from the State Planning Board

relative to progress and status of projects for the Reno

Campus.



Mr. Rogers discussed the design of the Social Science

(History) building for the Reno Campus. The Planning

Board conducted formal negotiations with Vhay Associates

for the design, but were not able to arrive at a satisfac-

tory fee schedule. The University Engineer's Office was

notified and agreement was reached that further negotia-

tions could wait until a later date with the thought that

the 1963 Legislature might wish to finance the project by

appropriation rather than by bonding. Mr. Rogers believed

however that the deadline of March, 1962 should be set for

the architect's agreement to become effective.



Dr. Anderson discussed the replacement and extension of

heating lines in the quadrangle, which the Planning Board

reported is under contract with Mr. Hugh d'Autremont.

Construction documents should be ready for bid in the very

near future. In the interest of time, Dr. Anderson suggest-

ed that the Regents authorize the Building Committee to

approve final plans.



Motion by Mr. Crumley, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously that the Regents' Building Committee be author-

ized to approve final plans of this project.



Ferris and Erskine are under contract for construction of

an addition to the Student Union building and Student Health

Facility in Reno. Mr. Russell Clopine is under contract for

remodeling of the old Clark Library building. Mr. H. V.

Lamberti is under contract for Structural Survey of Morrill

Hall.



In regard to the two Dormitories to be financed through

HHFA (item 4), Dr. Anderson suggested that the Regents noti-

fy the Planning Board whether or not it wishes the Planning

Board to work with the Regents.



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

unanimously that the State Planning Board be asked to

cooperate with the University in the planning and construc-

tion of the two Dormitories.



Mr. Hancock reported that Attorney Sidney Robinson has now

supplied the necessary information on the Capurro property

and purchase will be completed soon.



Referring to item 5, the Regents agreed by consensus to ac-

cept the gift of a radiac calibrator with the understanding

that it cannot be received until location has been deter-

mined.



President Armstrong discussed re-zoning requests for both

sides of North Virginia Street from Seventh to Eleventh

Streets, which would open it up to certain commercial proj-

ects undesirable for the University. The University pro-

tested. The request was not granted by the City Council.

A further meeting is to be held on the evening of August

14. Mr. Crumley and Dr. Lombardi will attend as represen-

tatives of the Regents' Building Committee, both Dr.

Armstrong and Dr. Anderson will be attending a meeting in

San Francisco. Mr. Hancock agreed to attend the meeting

also and back up the University's position.



President Armstrong discussed the proposed Seventh Street

Freeway (item 8) and showed a drawing of the routing, which

would cross the Valley Road Farm. If this were to be done,

$25,000 or $30,000 would be necessary to relocate trees and

other items on the farm. The question was discussed also

as to the legality of the State condemning State property.

Mr. Porter offered to look into the matter and to remain in

touch with the State Highway Board for any actions which

they may take. It was agreed by consensus that the Regents

not act on the Seventh Street Freeway proposal as to the

proximity to University property until the Highway Board

takes some action.



A request was received from the State Prison and State Fire

Warden for two temporary buildings being discarded by the

University. Mr. Rogers reported that the buildings were of

no use or value to the University. President Armstrong

recommended approval of the request.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Crumley, carried

unanimously that the request be approved, subject to check-

ing by Mr. Porter as to the legal aspects.



Regarding item 10, Mc Leod property now owned by the Trinity

Episcopal Church, Mr. Porter was of the opinion that the

University is in a position to go ahead with the exchange,

as proposed. The Regents agreed by consensus to refer the

matter to Skidmore, Owings & Merrill as to its effect on

the Master Plan, and to authorize the Administration to pro-

ceed with the exchange of property with frontage on Flamingo

Road for the Mc Leod property which lies directly west of

the Health and Physical Education building.



Mr. Rogers discussed the request of Sierra Pacific Power

Company (item 11) and said that the request is for use of

a triangle of land which the University uses only for park-

ing. It would be of advantage to the University to have

the sub-station at this point in that it would help to ob-

tain a more dependable source of power and assist in plac-

ing the power lines underground.



Motion by Mr. Crumley, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried

unanimously that the request of the Sierra Pacific Power

Company for easement be approved, subject to checking by

the Attorney General, and contingent upon review and recom-

mendation of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.



Mr. Rogers discussed the proposed power distribution plan

for Nevada Southern (item 12). The action recommended would

permit the Power Company to put in a sub-station near the

water tank. This would reduce the power charge for the

Campus.



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

unanimously that the request of the Power Company in Las

Vegas be granted, subject to coordination with the Office

of the Attorney General as to whether it should be handled

as an easement or a license.



It was agreed by consensus to approve the plans for under-

ground wiring, and to consider, perhaps as an additive

alternate, some sort of screening or lattice block work

around the transformer of the sub-stations near Grant and

Frazier Halls for the sake of appearance.



Mr. Rogers discussed the possibility that the University

might be able to make use of urban renewal funds to acquire

land. He will attend a meeting in Reno on the matter, and

if possible, Mr. Porter will attend also.



11. Fire Alarm System



Mr. Crumley brought up the matter of the fire alarm system

for the new Men's Dormitory, which he believed is not yet

connected with the City system. He suggested that action

be taken to effect the hook-up immediately in the interest

of safety for the students, and that plans be made to hook

up the other Dormitories on a permanent rather than on a

temporary basis. The permanent hook-up would permit the

Fire Department to receive the alarm immediately, and the

temporary system does not.



Mr. Rogers explained that when the Dormitory building was

built the Reno Fire Department did not accept the arrange-

ment because it was routed through the basement of the

building, which the architect thought was all right. The

University then worked through the State Purchasing Depart-

ment for the necessary wire for the conduit underground and

University employees ran a temporary overhead line. The

City was notified but would not connect. Bids have been

received to use money from HHFA to hook up the entire area.

Mr. Hancock stated that there is some money in the fund for

extension of utilities which could be used for any such

project on the Campus. The bids for miscellaneous work to

the HHFA projects would include the fire alarm system.



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

unanimously that by whatever means available, the new

Men's Dormitory be connected with the City fire alarm

system and as soon as possible to make the entire alarm

system a permanent one instead of a temporary one.

sented.

to the Board of Regents by the Academic Committee and rec-

ommended approval:



a) Dean Holstine moved that the recommendation which stated

"The term 'non returnable evaluation fee' will be re-

named 'nonreturnable application fee'. It is recommend-

ed that this fee be $5.00 to absorb the costs of proc-

essing applications for individuals who decide to enter

another educational institution." be approved except

that the fee be $10.00 instead of $5.00 and that the

fee would apply to all students making application to

the University of Nevada and further that the $10.00 be

applied toward the registration fee at the University

in the event the student actually enrolls; that the

students awarded Graduate Assistantships not be charged

this fee; and that this recommendation be referred to

the President for appropriate action. Seconded by Dean

Weems and carried.



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

unanimously that the above action of the Academic Com-

mittee be approved, effective with the Fall semester,

1962-63.



b) Motion by Dean Weems, seconded by Dean Adams, that a fee

of $5.00 be charged for the make-up on an Incomplete,

carried. Approved by the President. This matter will

be referred to the Board of Regents for action.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Crumley, carried

unanimously that the above action of the Academic Com-

mittee be approved, effective with the Fall semester,

1961-62.



c) Motion by Dean Weems, seconded by Dean Holstine, that

there be added to the catalog statement, "Candidates

for the bachelor's degree must spend at least one semes-

ter of an academic year, or its equivalent (15 credits)

in Summer School, as a full-time student on the main

Campus of the University", the phrase "enrolled in the

upper division of the College conferring the degree.",

effective with the Fall semester 1961-62 carried unani-

mously. Approved by the President. This proposal will

be referred to the Board of Regents.



The matter was discussed and the following amendment

was suggested: "unless exception is approved by the

Dean of such College".



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

unanimously to approve the above, as amended, action of

the Academic Committee.



President Armstrong will refer the matter back to the

Academic Committee.



16. Committee on 1925 Regulations and By-Laws



Mr. Crumley, Chairman of the Committee, met with President

Armstrong and Mr. Heneman of the firm of Cresap, Mc Cormick

and Paget, as authorized by the Board of Regents. Letter

to Mr. Crumley from Cresap, Mc Cormick and Paget stated that

the fee for their professional services for this assignment

would be in the range of $5,000 to $6,800 plus charge for

the actual expense of living and travel in Nevada for the

production of the report. Mr. Crumley recommended, on be-

half of the Committee, that the University use the services

of the firm in bringing the By-Laws of the Board of Regents

up-to-date.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the University enter

into contract with Cresap, Mc Cormick and Paget as outlined

in letter to Mr. Crumley under date of June 30, 1961; that

Mr. Crumley be authorized to write to the firm so informing

them and at the same time to request copies of By-Laws which

they have prepared to other Colleges and Universities.



President Armstrong discussed the two committees of which

Mr. Crumley is Chairman, the Regents' Salary Committee and

the Committee on 1925 Regulations and By-Laws. He suggested

that the committee work would be simplified if the two com-

mittees were combined into one committee. There being no

objection, Chairman Grant named Mr. Crumley, Chairman, Dr.

Anderson, Mr. Broadbent, Mr. Germain, Mrs. Magee to serve

as the 1925 Regulations and Salary Committee.

1961, distributed material from that meeting entitled "The

Regents' Role in Developing the Program of the Institution"

for the information of the board. He and Mr. Grant urged

that as many Board members as possible attend the annual

October 11-14, 1961.



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

unanimously that the Board go on record as seeking at

least three members as delegates to the annual meeting of

dinated through the President's Office, not later than

August 15.



19. Getchell Library Cornerstone Ceremony



President Armstrong reported on arrangements for the corner-

stone laying ceremony for the Getchell Library building to

be held on Sunday, September 10, at 2:00 P.M. The ceremony

Mr. Rogers displayed topographical plans for the Reno Campus

which Dr. Anderson and Dr. Lombardi of the Regents' Building

Committee, President Armstrong and he had previously review-

ed. They were here presented for approval by the Regents.



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

unanimously that the topographical plans be accepted.



21. Architectural Models



Money for models for the two Campuses was provided by the

Legislature. Dr. Anderson proposed that the Regents now

inform the State Planning Board that they desire to proceed

with these two models, to be made to the scale of 1-100.



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

unanimously that the Regents recommend to the State Planning

Board that a contract be entered into to accomplish the

scale models for the two Campuses.



22. Nuclear Equipment



Dr. Anderson discussed purchase of a 10-watt reactor from

Atomics International at a price of $67,700 f. o. b. their

warehouse, which would not be hazardous even in areas of

high population. Shipping charges to Reno would be approx-

imately $425. Cost of placing the equipment should be nom-

inal. President Armstrong reported that Dr. Dickinson and

Dean Blodgett both indicated that this equipment would

serve the needs of the University in the forseeable future.

Safety devices are as fool-proof as possible. President

Armstrong recommended that $50,000 from the Terris Moore

Estate be earmarked for this purpose and that outside funds

be sought to supplement the amount.



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

unanimously that the Administration be authorized to commit

$50,000 from the Terris Moore Estate Bequest toward purchase

of the nuclear reactor described above, to be available if

and when the necessary additional funds can be obtained from

outside sources.



It was agreed that, prior to obtaining the equipment, the

Administration should confer with the Legislative Commission

relative to the safety features of the reactor.



23. Whittell Property - Little Valley



Dr. Armstrong distributed a report and recommendations of

the committee appointed to consider development of the

George Whittell Forest and Wildlife Area as to the best

use of the property (attached). President Armstrong recom-

mended that the committee recommendations be approved as

follows:



That the George Whittell Forest and Wildlife Area be main-

tained so that;



(1) most of its area shall be preserved as a primitive

area for research, and



(2) small and limited areas shall be designated as

"Class Use Areas" for experimentation and in-

struction.



He further recommended that a budget be set up, in accord

with the request of the committee, for the initial work

from the Hunter L. Gary Bequest. The Will of Hunter Gray

states that the grant is "to be used and expended in the

furtherance of suitable instruction and training of students

to fit them for participation in organized wild life con-

servation, by the award of scholarships, or otherwise, in

your absolute discretion".



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

unanimously that the committee recommendations be approved

and the Administration be authorized to implement them;

that it be authorized to establish a budget, drawing upon

the Hunter L. Gary Bequest (Natser Corporation Account

51-4026) for the use of the committee in carrying out its

work.



24. Regents Committee



In view of change of membership on the Board, Chairman Grant

appointed Mr. Weld Arnold to serve in place of Mr. William

Tyson on the following committees: Building Committee,

Legislative Committee, Committee on Honorary Degrees and

Distinguished Nevadan Awards, Liaison Committees of the

College of Agriculture, College of Education, Graduate

School, Athletics, and Statewide Services. Chairman Grant

appointed Dr. Lombardi, member of the Liaison Committee

on Athletics, to be Chairman.



25. Austin Meeting



Dr. Lombardi proposed a vote of thanks to Regent Magee

for setting up the meeting in Austin and for the very

successful barbecue which she hosted on Friday evening,

and to include a vote of thanks for the citizens of Austin

who assisted. Thanks were so extended by unanimous vote.



The meeting adjourned at 12:40 P.M.



The next meeting will be held on Saturday, September 9, 1961 in

Reno, followed by cornerstone laying ceremony for the Nobel

Getchell Library building on Sunday, September 10, 1961.
