*Ph. D. Contingency



5. Memorial Resolution



Upon motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Dr. White, the

following resolution was adopted in memory of Dr. Donald

D. Allen:



The Regents of the University of Nevada System express

sincere sorrow over the death of Dr. Donald D. Allen,

31, a respected faculty member of the Department of

Physics and Astrophysical Sciences of the University

of Nevada, Las Vegas.



Dr. Allen joined the College of Science and Mathematics

at UNLV in 1967, following completion of his doctoral

study at the University of Colorado. He arrived just

as the Department of Physics was being created and

graduate and undergraduate degree programs established.

He was responsible for supervising some of the earliest

thesis work in the Department and provided considerable

consulting service to industrial firms in the community,

but his greatest strength was his interest and ability

in explaining Physics to undergraduates and devising

apparatus to demonstrate difficult concepts. His stu-

dents remember and respect him as an outstanding teacher

and person.



In spite of many months of recurring illness, he con-

tinued teaching through the Spring of 1970. His ex-

ample of courage and determination during the last

difficult months was an inspriration to friends and

colleagues. The University has benefited greatly from

his service. The Board of Regents extends its sympathy

to his widow, Sally Ann, and his two children.



6. Amendment to Traffic Code, UNLV



President Zorn presented revisions to the Traffic Code as

adopted by the UNLV Campus Parking and Traffic Committee,

effective July 1, 1970, and recommended ratification by the

Board (revisions filed with permanent minutes). Chancellor

Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the revisions be approved as recom-

mended.



7. Evening Division Fee, UNLV



President Zorn recalled that at the July meeting the Board

had approved a recommendation that a $3 per credit hour

capital improvement fee be assessed all Evening Division

and Summer Session students, as it is to part-time day

students. Dr. Zorn stated that subsequent discussion of

this matter reveals that if this $3 assessment is added to

the present Evening Division fee of $21, it will cause that

fee to exceed the fee charged to all other part-time stu-

dents. He requested that the Evening Division fee remain

at $21 per credit hour and the $3 per credit hour capital

improvement fee be made available to that fund by redis-

tribution of the present fee; i. e., that $16 for tuition,

$2 for Student Union fee and $3 for capital improvement fee,

noting that this is the distribution of fees in effect for

other part-time students. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



8. Humanities Building, UNLV



President Zorn reported that bids were opened July 21, 1970

for construction of the Humanities building, UNLV. The low

bid by Sierra Construction, Inc. of Las Vegas was for

$3,248,000 which exceeds the estimate of $3,110,000 by

$138,000. On July 23, 1970, the Regents were consulted by

telephone concerning a joint recommendation by Mr. Hancock,

President Zorn and Chancellor Humphrey that the base bid of

Sierra Construction of Las Vegas be accepted by diversion of

the necessary monies from the furnishings budget. This

would enable the building to be constructed and would leave

a contingency fund of $89,500 and a furnishings fund of

$53,000. The contingency fund, if unused, would be avail-

able for furnishings and the State Planning Board would

join with the University in requesting additional furnish-

ings money from the 1971 Session. An estimated $160,000

supplemental appropriation would be required.



Chancellor Humphrey reported that although it was not pos-

sible to talk with 4 of the Regents, 7 had been contacted

concerning the above recommendation and had expressed con-

currence with the above procedure. He recommended that

the Board confirm its concurrence in the award of the bid

to Sierra Construction, Inc. of Las Vegas in the amount of

$3,248,000.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



Mr. Ronzone entered the meeting at 10:55 A.M.



Dr. White suggested that the Board of Regents again request

the Legislature to take action concerning an increase in

the limit of the State's bonded indebtedness. It was agreed

that it would be appropriate to discuss this at the October

or November meeting along with other legislative matters

which the Board would wish to present to the Legislature in

1971.



9. Performing Arts Center, UNLV



President Zorn reported that bids are scheduled to be opened

by the State Planning Board for the Performing Arts Center

on September 9, 1970. He noted that the Board is not sched-

uled to meet until October and requested some provision for

securing Board action in the interim.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Board agree to a

telephone poll following review of the bids, assuming that

the bids received will be within the budget and that no

negotiation will be required. Results of the telephone poll

could be confirmed at the October meeting.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



10. College of Education Building, UNLV



President Zorn reported that information had been received

from Mr. Howard Barrett, Director of the Department of

Administration, State of Nevada, that the State G. O. Bonds

for the College of Education building are scheduled for sale

August 26. The proceeds will then be available to the State

Planning Board by September 15 which will allow a construc-

tion bid date of approximately October 20.



11. Centrex Contract, UNLV



President Zorn requested authorization to enter into a con-

tract with Central Telephone Company, Southern Nevada Divi-

sion, for the installation of a Centrex Telephone System at

UNLV in August, 1971, at a rate of approximately $1160 per

month.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the contract be ap-

proved and monies included in the 1971-73 UNLV budget for

this purpose.



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

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



12. Physical Science, Phase II, UNR



President Miller reported that bids are scheduled to be

opened by the State Planning Board on September 17, 1970,

for the construction of Physical Science, Phase II. He

requested that provision be made for securing Board action

prior to the October meeting, as had been requested for

the Performing Arts Center.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that the Board agree to a

telephone poll following review of the bids, assuming that

the bids received will be within the budget and that no

negotiation will be required. Results of the telephone poll

could be confirmed at the October meeting.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.

accounts at the Reno Campus had the following balances

as of June 30, 1970:



Deficit Accounts:



1-61-3001 Dining Commons $114,949.48-

1-61-4002 White Pine Hall 4,529.91-

1-61-4007 Nye Hall 33,153.48

1-61-4006 Juniper Hall 649.51

1-62-4003 Manzanita Hall 17,794.26

1-62-4004 Lincoln Hall 17,632.03

1-61-2048 Rent Income 5,009.52

Subtotal $ 94,489.77

1-61-3001 Aux. Ent. Reserve 76,728.76

Total $171,218.53



Unfunded deficit $ 11,036.91-



Mr. Pine requested that the $182,255.44 of deficit

accounts be funded by transfer of $94,489.77 from the

surplus accounts, $76,728.76 from the Auxiliary Enter-

prises Reserve, and $11,036.91 from the UNR Capital

Improvement Fee Fund, noting this would bring all UNR

Auxiliary Enterprises accounts to a zero balance to

start 1970-71 fiscal year operations. President Miller

and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

proved.



B. Mr. Pine reported that the UNR, Auxiliary Enterprises

accounts at Stead Campus had the following balances as

of June 30, 1970:



Surplus Accounts:



1-61-7052 5400 Series Apartments $ 9,779.38



Deficit Accounts:



1-62-7001 Dining Hall $ 26,993.05-

1-62-7051 3300 Series Res. Halls 5,859.76-

1-62-7053 5500 Series Conf. and Res. Halls 1,171.00-

Total $ 34,023.81-



Mr. Pine requested that deficits totaling $34,023.81 be

funded as follows:



1-62-7052 5400 Series Apts. $ 9,779.38

1-62-5001 University Rental Account 24,216.58

1-4-26-3001 B/R Special Projects 27.85

Total $ 34,023.81



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

carried without dissent that the above recommendation

be approved.



C. Chancellor Humphrey stated that these transfers will

resolve the UNR and UNR, Stead, Auxiliary Enterprises

deficits for 1969-70 fiscal year; however, the difficul-

ties these accounts have encountered may not be resolved

in fiscal 1970-71. He noted that the Estimative Budgets

for 1970-71 have been adopted based on certain assump-

tions concerning occupany rates. If these occupancy

rates do not materialize the budgets will, of course,

have to be adjusted immediately to avoid continuing

deficits.



17. Edwin W. Stadtmuller Estate



President Miller recommended that funds generated by the

Edwin W. Stadtmuller bequest ($25,000 to UNR to establish

the Frederick and Anna Stadtmuller Memorial Scholarship)

be administered by the Scholarships and Prizes Board in

conformity with the standards usually applied by that

Board and that no predesignation be assigned as to recip-

ient. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



18. Centennial History of the University of Nevada



President Miller recalled that in December 1963 the Board

reviewed a proposal for the writing of the history of the

University of Nevada and agreed that unrestricted endow-

ment earnings might be used for financing the project.

He noted that he had renewed discussions concerning this

project in anticipation that such a publication might appear

in 1974, the Centennial Year for the University of Nevada.



President Miller reported that Professor James Hulse has

agreed to write the Centennial History and had submitted a

budget for the project totaling $7900 for two years. He

requested that funds be provided from the Board of Regents

Special Projects Fund. Chancellor Humphrey recommended

that $7900 be allocated from the Board of Regents Special

Projects Fund for this purpose.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



19. Change of Departmental Designation



President Miller presented a request that the Department

of Elementary Education, UNR, be retitled Elementary and

Special Education, effective September 1, 1970. President

Miller pointed out that for the past five years Special

Education has been a part of the Elementary Education

Department and programs have been conducted to meet the

requirements for Special Education teachers and specialists

for the State of Nevada during this period. He noted that

the Dean of the College has indicated that he does not

wish to recommend a separate Department of Special Educa-

tion, but prefers to continue this program in conjunction

with Elementary Education administrative staff and facili-

ties; however, believes that it is important to be able to

designate through transcript records the focus of the

students who are specializing in Special Education. Dr.

Miller agreed with Dean Cain's recommendation that this

could be accomplished through the change in the Departmen-

tal name and recommended approval by the Board of Regents.

Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



20. Amendment to Student Bill of Rights, UNR



President Miller presented a request from the Graduate

Placement Office, ASUN President and Faculty Senate Chair-

man that the Student Bill of Rights be amended to insure

that confidential records in the placement offices, main-

tained for the purpose of future employment placement,

will be protected. He recommended that the document be

amended as follows:



III Student Records



C. Access to his records and files is guaranteed

every student subject only to reasonable reg-

ulations as to time, place and supervision,

with the exception of confidential evaluation

and references in the graduate and other place-

ment offices, which may be required for the

purpose of securing placement in business,

industry, government or education.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



21. Revision of ASUN Fee Refund Schedule



President Miller presented a request from the ASUN Finance

Control Board and the ASUN President that ASUN fee refunds

be granted in full until two weeks after the date of regis-

tration and that after that date no refunds be granted. He

noted that presently there is a graduated fee refund sched-

ule over a 6 week period.



President Zorn stated that this recommendation by ASUN has

been considered by UNLV and, with the concurrence of the

Business Manager and CSUN officers, he requested this re-

vision in fee refund schedule also be approved for UNLV.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval of the requested

revision to the fee refund schedule for both ASUN and

CSUN, effective Fall semester, 1970.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



22. Instructional Extension Activities



Chancellor Humphrey noted that at present both UNR and UNLV

are authorized by Board of Regents policy to offer extension

courses anywhere in Nevada. Elko Community College is au-

thorized to offer extension courses at Nevada State Prison

in Carson City, Nevada State Girls Training Center in

Caliente and Nevada Youth Training Center in Elko. Mr.

Humphrey reported that he had met with President Miller,

President Zorn, Director Donnelly, Dr. Robert Whittemore,

Dean of General University Extension, UNR, and Mr. Hubert

Johnson, Director of Summer Session and Continuing Educa-

tion, UNLV, on July 13, 1970 to discuss the existing policy

and to determine if a recommendation could be developed

which would provide authority for the Community College

Division to offer extension courses and which might improve

the administration of extension activities. Various ideas

were discussed, he said, including (1) geographical divi-

sion of the State between UNR and UNLV; (2) use of a "home

base" concept whereby an area close to each Campus would be

served only by that Campus but all other areas could be

served by either Campus; and (3) return to central admin-

istration of extension activities using personnel from the

System.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that agreement was reached on the

following items and these were recommended for approval by

the Board:



(1) The Community College Division shall be authorized to

offer extension courses and program throughout the

State and one position, plus operating money for that

position, shall be budgeted;



(2) UNR and UNLV shall continue to offer extension courses

and programs throughout the State; however, appropri-

ated monies shall be made available to each Campus for

only one position, plus operating money for that posi-

tion (since all other costs of offering courses will

be met from registration fees, it is assumed that the

economics of travel costs will keep each Campus out

of the natural "service area" of the other Campus);



(3) A UNS committee for coordination of extension activi-

ties shall be established with representatives desig-

nated by each of the 3 instructional Division Heads

(Chancellor Humphrey noted that it was his intention

to call a meeting of this committee and to serve, at

least in the beginning, as its Chairman. He stated

that he believed this could be the right method to

allow decentralized extension administration but still

provide sufficient coordination to insure that instruc-

tional extension activities are available throughout

the State without unnecessary and costly duplication.);



(4) Before offering a course in the vicinity of the other

Campus, the Director of Off-Campus Programs shall be

obligated to discuss this with his counterpart on the

other Campus; and,



(5) The Director of Off-Campus Programs shall neither

negotiate nor contract for the services of a faculty

member from another Campus without the permission of

the President of that Campus.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that Cooperative Extension was not

included in the discussion and is not affected by the above

recommendations; however, there is agreement that Coopera-

tive Extension activities justify Systemwide discussion and

a meeting on this subject is anticipated. Presidents Miller

and Director Donnelly expressed concurrence in the above

recommendation.



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

without dissent that the above recommendations be approved.



23. State Board of Examiners in the Basic Sciences



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that new appointments had

recently been made by the Board of Regents to the State

Board of Examiners in the Basic Sciences and noted that a

report had been submitted concerning the organizational

meeting of the new members. New officers for the coming

year are:



Chairman - Donald G. Cooney, Ph. D.

Secretary-Treasurer - George T. Smith, M. D.

Member - Robert B. Smith, Ph. D.



Examiners for the 5 areas for the September 8, 1970 examina-

tions will be as follows:



Anatomy - Richard Licata, Ph. D., Professor of

Anatomy, UNR School of Medical Sciences



Bacteriology - Donald G. Cooney, Ph. D., Professor of

Biology, UNR



Chemistry - Robert B. Smith, Ph. D., Dean of College

of Science and Mathematics, UNLV



Physiology - Dean C. Fletcher, Ph. D., Professor of

Biochemistry, UNR School of Medical

Sciences



Pathology - V. A. Salvadorini, M. D., Physicians

Consulting Laboratory, Reno



24. Commission for Culturally Deprived Students



Mr. Hug recalled that he had requested that his proposal

for the creation of this Commission be distributed at the

July meeting so that individual Regents might have an op-

portunity to review it prior to discussion and possible

action at this meeting (proposal filed with permanent

minutes). He stated that he believed there needs to be a

broadly based commission of this sort, representative of

the entire State and its citizens, to identify what must

be done for those students who are educationally dis-

advantaged.



Mr. Hug noted that there has been some criticism of the

name, specifically its reference to "culturally deprived"

students. He said he believed the criticism is well taken

because it may create a negative implication among those

whom it is designed to help and such was not his intention

in proposing that particular name. He pointed out that the

name is not important and can easily be changed -- the idea

is important and must be pursued if the Board of Regents

and the University are to fulfill their obligation to pro-

vide educational opportunities to all students regardless

of their backgrounds and preparation.



Mr. Hug also spoke of the size of the Commission, noting

that the makeup which is proposed results in a rather large

group and perhaps should be adjusted downward. He said the

size is not the important factor -- the idea is that the

Board of Regents must devote some thought as to how to as-

sist those persons who have the basic native intelligence

to proceed with a College education. Attention must be

given to discovering the most effective means of reaching

these students. For some, he said, the Community Colleges

might be the appropriate level; for others, perhaps more

attention needs to be given at the high school level. The

Commission would be in a position to study this matter in

depth and to consult with the people in this State and in

other states to identify the problem areas and to determine

ways in which the University can be most effective.



Mr. Bilbray suggested this proposal be referred to a com-

mittee of the Board of Regents so that details could be

worked out, adding that he did not believe the arbitrary

creation of a commission would be productive.



Mrs. Knudtsen agreed that development of the full scope of

such a commission should be given careful attention but

added that she believed the idea was good and suggested its

creation be approved. She agreed with the concern expressed

about the name.



Dr. Lombardi suggested the name "Commission for Educational

Opportunity" be substituted.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved that the name be changed to "Commission

for Educational Opportunity". Motion seconded by Dr.

White, carried without dissent.



Mr. Ronzone asked if the Higher Education Advisory Committee

could be requested to perform the function envisioned for

this commission. Mr. Hug stated that he did not believe

the makeup of the HEAC would lend itself to this particular

study in that HEAC is not oriented toward this kind of prob-

lem. Mrs. Knudtsen agreed, citing some of the areas for

which the HEAC was created and some of the functions it has

performed.



Mrs. Knudtsen moved that the Board proceed with the estab-

lishment of the Commission for Educational Opportunity and

with discussion of its composition. Motion seconded by

Dr. Lombardi.



President Miller stated that he had two concerns related

to this proposal. One was his belief that the problem of

educational opportunity was not restricted to the College

level. In fact, he said, many of the problems encountered

at the College level were directly associated with previous

formal or informal education. An attack on this problem

requires close coordination with other agencies and insti-

tutions. He suggested that the Board undertake a call

for a Statewide commission, not concerned just with the

University of Nevada but with education at all levels with-

in the State.



President Miller said his second concern related to the ac-

tivities of the committee at UNR which has been in existence

for two years and which is concerned with dealing directly

with problems at the Campus level. He suggested that such

a committee, smaller in membership, is more effective be-

cause the problems at each Campus are different.



Dr. Donnelly spoke in support of Mr. Hug's proposal, point-

ing out that the Community Colleges hope to be able to meet

the needs of these educationally disadvantaged students and

such a commission would be useful in helping to identify

problem areas and to assist in developing ways to provide

educational opportunities to this group. He suggested that

the size of the Commission would not be a problem if there

were provision for working subcommittees.



Dr. Zorn stated that he believed the Commission was a worthy

idea. He expressed concern about the size but also comment-

ed that it would be desirable to include representation from

the Spanish speaking population in Southern Nevada.



Mr. Bell expressed support of the idea of the commission,

but suggested that a time limitation of one year be imposed

and a financial ceiling be set.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that he endorsed the idea of the

Commission and believed that it would be a worthwhile under-

taking. He added that he shared some of the apprehensions

concerning the size of the group. He also stated that he

did not believe the Commission should be considered as tak-

ing the place of the Campus group which President Miller

referred to; rather, it should contribute some valuable in-

put to assist the Campus groups.



Motion carried without dissent.



Mr. Ronzone moved that this proposal be referred to the

Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet with a request that the

group develop guidelines for the direction of the Commis-

sion and prepare recommendations for its composition, with

a report to be made at the October meeting. Motion second-

ed by Mr. Bilbray.



Discussion of the motion was deferred to permit the meeting to

adjourn for lunch. The Board reconvened in regular session at

1:30 P.M.



25. Graduate Teaching Fellows and Assistants



Chancellor Humphrey recalled that in May the Board requested

that a "determination for budgeting purposes be made of the

feasibility of changing the function of Graduate Assistants

from one of teaching to one of assisting the Professor in

charge of the classroom." In June the Chancellor's Office

presented a report titled "A Possible Approach to the Change

of Function of Graduate Teaching Fellows or Assistants."

The report was referred to Presidents Zorn and Miller for

their consideration and they were requested to return to

the Board at the August meeting with "reports concerning

the use of Graduate Fellows and Assistants and the feasi-

bility of modifying their function", with the purpose of

possible modification of the 1971-73 budget.



President Zorn commented on the report from UNLV (identified

as Ref. L and filed with permanent minutes), noting that

several Departments at UNLV use Graduate Assistants more

than others. He stated that some adjustments could be made

but UNLV would need time to make the transition. They

would, however, proceed with appropriate steps to satisfy

the need for more supervision of Graduate Students.



President Miller commented on the report from UNR (identi-

fied as Ref. M and filed with permanent minutes).



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that:



(1) The reports from UNR and UNLV be accepted and further

effort be directed toward the modification of the

function of Graduate Fellows and Assistants and a

complete report and recommendation be developed for

each Campus to be presented to the Board not later

than January 1971 (in order that agreement might be

reached before the 1971-72 Work Program is developed

and before commitments are made to Graduate Students

for 1971-72 employment); and



(2) The Presidents be instructed to make every effort to

insure that for 1970-71 teaching loads of Graduate

Assistants or Fellows are not in excess of 2 courses

per semester, and that adequate faculty supervision

and guidance is provided to these students in their

best interests and the best interests of the under-

graduates they are teaching.



Mr. Seeliger asked that consideration also be given to a

report from the students on how they evaluate the teaching

effectiveness of Graduate Assistants. Miss Del Papa and

Mr. Myers agreed to furnish such a report.



Mr. Hug suggested that this report be furnished to the

October meeting. He also expressed continuing concern

about the function of the Graduate Assistant, stating that

he believed there must be a change in the direction of

Graduate Teaching Assistant, even to giving it top priority

in the budget.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that any change in the budget

request would have to be done immediately and would there-

fore not have the benefit of the President's reports. He

suggested that the students' reports be scheduled for the

October meeting, thereby giving the Presidents the benefit

of this additional input before they submit their reports

in January, and that any change in budget desired be ac-

complished in January before legislative consideration of

the University budget.



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

without dissent that the Chancellor's recommendations (1)

and (2) above be approved.



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

without dissent that reports from the students of both

Campuses concerning their evaluation of Graduate Teaching

Assistants be scheduled for the October meeting.



24. Commission for Culturally Deprived Students (continued)



Discussion resumed on Mr. Ronzone's motion that the direc-

tion and composition of the Commission for Educational

Opportunity be developed by the Chancellor's Advisory

Cabinet.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the discussion, agreeing that

the Advisory Cabinet would, using Mr. Hug's proposal as a

base document, attempt refinements in the scope of the

Commission and develop recommendations for the appoint-

ments. The Board would then be requested to consider at

its October meeting an amended document as to purpose and

function of the Commission and nominations for appointments.



Motion carried without dissent.



26. Authorization to Purchase



Chancellor Humphrey stated that, in view of the fact that

the next scheduled meeting of the Board is not until

October 9, 1970, it is important that a method be available

for the processing of purchases in excess of $5000 which

may be required. He recommended that the Division Heads

be authorized to approve such purchases in excess of $5000

as they consider necessary to the efficient operation of

their Divisions, following the approved bidding procedures

as required by University regulations, with a report of

the pertinent facts to the Board of Regents at the October

meeting.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



27. Annual Educators' Conferences



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that $300 each be allocated

to UNR and UNLV, by transfers from the Board of Regents

Special Projects Fund, to provide funds for the luncheons

to be held in connection with the Annual Educators' Con-

ferences scheduled for the Fall.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



28. Wildlands Research Coordination Board



Chancellor Humphrey recommended that $800 be made available

to the Wildlands Research Coordination Board from the Board

of Regents Special Projects Account to provide funds for

in-state travel and to allow the Board to meet on both

University Campuses and a field trip with the U. S. Forest

Service to Central Nevada.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



29. Report of the Investment Advisory Committee



Dr. Lombardi presented the minutes of the Investment

Advisory Committee meeting of July 10, 1970, as follows:



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

Jot Travis Student Union, University of Nevada, Reno.



Present were: Committee Members, Dr. Louis Lombardi,

Chairman, Mrs. Molly Knudtsen, Dr. Fred Anderson, Mr.

Albert Seeliger; Public Members, Mr. Julius Bergen and

Mr. Arthur M. Smith, Jr.; Bank Representatives, Mr. Thayer

Bigelow and Mr. Walter Bradley. Also attending were Regent

Harold Jacobsen, Dean Robert C. Weems, Consultant, and

Chancellor Neil D. Humphrey.



A portfolio review as of June 30, 1970 had been mailed to

all members. As of that date Agency 522 had market value

of $6,054,430 and the 1960-70 income was $315,976 or 5.2%.



Mr. Bradley discussed the comparative figures for the en-

dowment portfolio, June 30, 1969 to June 30, 1970, adjusted

for new additions to the fund. This revealed a loss of

$1,184,365 or 17.1%. It was agreed that this loss (com-

pared to Dow Jones averages and other bench marks) was

reasonable. (Copy of report is filed with permanent min-

utes.)



Mr. Bradley distributed copies of the First National Bank's

Investment Policy Statement of July 8, 1970. (Copy of re-

port is filed with permanent minutes.)



Mr. Bradley requested approval of the purchase of $25,000

par value, 8 7/8% J. C. Penney bonds. Mrs. Knudtsen moved

that this purchase be approved, Mr. Seeliger seconded, and

the motion passed unanimously.



It was agreed that the fund's 1/4 interest in the Clay

Peters Building Corporation would be offered for sale at

$100,000 cash and that, subject to sale, membership on the

Board of Directors of the corporation would be requested.



It was noted that additional investments would be necessary

before the Committee's next meeting October 9, 1970, and

that approval would be sought be the Bank, by telephone or

letter.



Meeting adjourned at 1:15 P.M.



Submitted by Neil D. Humphrey, Chancellor

Secretary

Investment Advisory Committee



Chancellor Humphrey recommended confirmation of the action

of the Committee as reported in the minutes.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



30. Resolutions Concerning Revenue Bond Sale



Chancellor Humphrey reported that the University's bond

counsel (Dawson, Nagel, Sherman & Howard) and the Univer-

sity's bond fiscal advisor (Burrows, Smith and Co.) had

informed the University of Nevada of recent experience at

the University of Utah and Utah State University which

would affect the Board's adoption of resolutions at the

July meeting. At those institutions, which are subject

to a University Securities Act similar to Nevada's and with

similar bond resolutions, it was determined that interest

subsidies provided by the Federal Government could not be

considered income for purposes of coverage of the issue.

The two recent issues by the University of Nevada (Physical

Science, Phase II, UNR, and Education Building, UNLV) have

no such subsidy; however, it is assumed that some future

issues will. He recommended, therefore, that the resolu-

tions previously adopted (#70-3 and #70-4), authorizing the

sale of $1,900,000 UNR revenue bonds for the Physical

Science, Phase II, and the $1,600,000, UNLV revenue bonds

for the Education Building, UNLV, be rescinded and resolu-

tions #70-5 and #70-6 be adopted, subject to staff review.

Chancellor Humphrey noted that resolutions #70-5 and #70-6

have been prepared to include provision for the interest

subsidy on any future issues to be considered for coverage

purposes.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



31. Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5000, DRI



A. Dr. Ward reported that bids were opened July 24, 1970

for drilling, testing and casing ground water test holes

in the Las Vegas-Henderson area.



Drilling and Pumps, Inc. $27,200

P. H. Thompson 22,425



Dr. Ward recommended that the bid of P. H. Thompson be

accepted, noting that funds are available in account

1-6-037-7010. Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

proved.



B. Dr. Ward reported that the following bids were received

for an Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer:



Van Waters & Rogers-Phillips SP90B $ 6,650

Varian Aerograph - Varian AA-5 8,400

Perkin-Elmer - Perkin-Elmer 403 19,375



Dr. Ward noted that the Phillips instrument offered by

Van Waters & Rogers is of foreign manufacture and is

not widely used in similar laboratories. In addition

to the supply part problem attending the service of any

foreign instrument in this country, Dr. Ward stated that

the Phillips instrument does not have as good a history

of satisfactory performance as does Varian Aerograph.

He recommended the bid of Varian Aerograph be accepted.

Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

proved.



32. Architectural Competitions, Physical Education Complexes



Chancellor Humphrey reported that information has been re-

ceived from Mr. William Hancock, Secretary to the State

Planning Board, that the competition drawings for the UNR

and UNLV Physical Education Complexes were judged on July

23. The jury selected the solution presented by Selden

and Stewart for the UNR project and the solution presented

by Moffitt and Mc Daniel for the UNLV project. The Board

asked that the solutions be presented for their information

at the October meeting.



33. Lease of Stead Campus Theater



Mr. Pine reported that Mr. Eugene Haydon has presented an

offer to lease the theater at Stead Campus for $150 per

month for a period of one year.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval, subject to ap-

proval by the Attorney General and by the U. S. Department

of Health, Education and Welfare.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



34. In-State Fee Waivers for Nevada Resident Indians



Dr. Donnelly recalled that in June 1967 the Board establish-

ed a separate category of in-state fee waivers permitting

the allocation of up to 20 resident fee waivers to Nevada

resident Indians. These waivers are not included in the

group of in-state fee waivers which is based upon 3% of the

total student enrollment. Recipients of these fee waivers

must have a minimum of 2.0 grade point average for continu-

ation of this award; however, the review for this purpose

is made at the end of the year rather than at the end of

the first semester.



Dr. Donnelly recommended that 10 such in-state fee waivers

be allocated to Nevada resident Indians for 1970-71 academic

year for Elko Community College. Chancellor Humphrey rec-

ommended approval.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



35. 1971-73 Biennial Budget Recommendation



Chancellor Humphrey commented on the summary of the 1971-73

Biennial Budget recommendation which had been transmitted

with the agenda. He noted that the budget had been dis-

cussed at length with the individual Division Heads and

in the Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet. He noted that ad-

justments had been made in the Division budgets with know-

ledge of interrelationship of the total budget, and atti-

tudes expressed by the Regents at the July meeting when

preliminary figures were reviewed.



Mr. Humphrey stated that several changes had been agreed to

in the July 29 meeting of the Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet

but had not been incorporated into the printed document

which had been transmitted to the Board:



(1) Faculty Senates of the 4 Divisions shall be budgeted

at $9000 each for 1971-72 and $10,000 each for 1972-

73. (This represents an increase for UNR and UNLV

of $1500 in 1971-72 and $2500 in 1972-73 and in in-

crease for DRI and CCD of $9000 in 1971-72 and $10,000

in 1972-73.)



(2) Environmental Quality Program in Jointly Administered

Programs of Research and Public Service increased from

$31,800 in 1971-72 and $33,850 in 1972-73 to $50,000

for each year of the biennium.



Incorporating these increases into the budget request re-

sults in slight changes in the requested figures. Chan-

cellor Humphrey distributed a replacement page 22 showing

the changes.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that President Miller, President

Zorn, Director Ward and Director Donnelly have expressed

general concurrence with the total budget request; however,

each of them had certain reservations concerning their

individual Division budgets and were prepared to comment on

this.



Dr. Ward stated that he did concur in the total budget re-

quest and that the staff of DRI understands why the reduc-

tions were made in the requests submitted by the Institute.

He also stated that he and the staff at DRI are pleased and

encouraged that the Chancellor had agreed with the philoso-

phy of requesting State appropriation for DRI programs.



Dr. Zorn expressed concurrence with the total budget request

adding that UNLV can live with the amount requested but

would have serious problems accommodating to any significant

further cuts in the request. He pointed out that careful

attention had been given to the budget request originating

from each Department on Campus and reduction had been neces-

sary in many instances. He expressed concern that further

reductions by the Legislature would seriously inhibit UNLV's

ability to service the student load during the next bien-

nium.



President Miller said he supported the budget request also;

however, he pointed out that it does represent a series of

compromises. He requested consideration of the Board of

two additions to the UNR budget:



(1) $25,000 for each year for professional and support

positions for General University Extension; and



(2) $168,650 additional for the two years of the bi-

ennium to support the initial development of a

greenhouse program in Southern Nevada by the

College of Agriculture.



Chancellor Humphrey commented on the request from the Col-

lege of Agriculture, stating that he could not support a

recommendation for that amount in that he did not believe

the University belonged in this operation if it were not

to be substantially self-supporting. He noted that negoti-

ations were still proceeding on this gift from Garden Farms

and it was not yet clear whether the greenhouse complex

would come to the University.



Mr. Walsh commented on a meeting which has been scheduled

for August 13 to work out additional details on the gift

and to determine if there was a possibility of eliminating

the mortgage. He stated that it appears they will not be

able to do this.



Mrs. Knudtsen expressed concern over this request from the

College of Agriculture, pointing out that Dean Bohmont had

earlier represented this project as being completely self-

supporting. (Note to minutes: Original presentation made

to Board of Regents July 10-11, 1970, Ref. E.)



President Miller stated that he agreed with the Chancel-

lor's recommendation that this not be included in the budget

request but had agreed to present Dean Bohmont's request for

reinstatement to the Board of Regents.



Mr. Bilbray moved that the request for appropriation for

the operation of the greenhouse not be reinstated in the

budget request. Motion seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

with Dr. White opposing.



Dr. Donnelly stated that he supported the budget request as

presented. In commenting on the Community College budget,

he pointed out that it is based on predicted enrollments

which in turn were based on the experience of other states

since Nevada has no historical data to draw from. He added

that he believes the projections to be valid under the

circumstances.



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed Pages 37 and 38 of the budget

document wherein it is proposed that a fee and tuition

structure be tentatively adopted by the Board of Regents

to permit the Presidents to discuss an increased fee

schedule with student government in the Fall.



Mr. Bilbray moved approval of the budget recommendation

as proposed by the Chancellor and endorsed by the Division

Heads, including the two changes agreed upon in Advisory

Cabinet but not printed in the document. Motion seconded

by Mrs. Knudtsen, carried without dissent.



The meeting adjourned at 4:00 P.M.
