Board of Regents Special Projects Fund to a special

account for the purpose of providing released time for

Reno Faculty, Special Services to the Reno Faculty

Committees engaged in the planning process, as well as

for the retention of special consultants from off

Campus.



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

roll call vote that the above recommendation be approved.



12. Applications for Lease or Purchase of Land from the U. S.

Bureau of Land Management



President Armstrong explained that in conformity with

previous action of the Board of Regents, certain lands have

been located in Clark County which are now recommended for

lease or purchase. Applications have been prepared and

approved by Chancellor Moyer which provide for the purchase

of 640 acres for an outdoor teaching laboratory area for

Geology, Mining and Biology. An application fee of $25 is

required and upon approval by the Government a payment of

$1,600. Applications have also been prepared for a 20-year

lease of 4,160 acres which will be used in conjunction with

the above property. This application required a fee of $10

and an annual fee of 25 cents per acre or $1,040. President

Armstrong recommended the approval of the above applications

with the purchase or rental price to be paid from operating

funds allocated to NSU.



Chancellor Moyer indicated he would like to revise his

request and suggested the applications be amended to provide

for lease of the entire area of 4,800 acres on an annual

basis rather than the purchase of the 640. Accordingly,

President Armstrong withdrew his recommendation for approval

of Chancellor Moyer's earlier proposal and endorsed the

request to lease instead of purchase.



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

roll call vote that the entire 4,800 acres of BLM land be

leased on an annual basis at 25 cents per acre or $1,200

with the cost to be paid from NSU operating funds and the

applications amended to delete any reference to purchase.



13. NSU Proposal to Charge a Residence Hall Damage Deposit



President Armstrong submitted a letter from Vice President

Humphrey which set forth the recommendation from Chancellor

Moyer that the $25 room deposit for residence hall not be

credited to the room rental but held as a general damage

deposit. His proposal is that the repair of damage to hall,

elevators, lounges and other general use areas within the

residence hall will be charged to this damage deposit fund

and all residents will receive an equal refund at the end

of the academic yer. Repair of damage in a student room and

repair of damage in general use areas for which responsibil-

ity can definitely be determined would be charged directly

to the student involved and not to the damage deposit fund.



Mr. Humphrey's memorandum indicated this proposal had been

discussed with the Reno Campus Office of Student Affairs

and with the Director of Auxiliary Enterprises, and it is

their recommendation, in which Chancellor Miller concurs,

that this procedure not be followed in the Reno Campus.



President Armstrong recommended the approval of the proposal

to charge a $25 fee at NSU as outlined above with the re-

quest that a refund policy statement be submitted for con-

sideration by the Board at its September meeting.



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

out dissent that the above policy be approved for the Nevada

Southern Campus only.

out dissent that the preliminary plans be approved as sub-

17. Paving Around Mechanical Arts Building, University of Nevada



Mr. Pine indicated that it had been the intention to bid

separately the paving to be done in conjunction with re-

modeling of Mechanical Arts building for the Physics Depart-

ment but it has now been determined that it can better be

accomplished by the use of a change in order. Accordingly,

President Armstrong recommened that a change in order be

executed.



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

roll call vote that the above recommendation be approved.



18. Installation of Fire Escapes



Mr. Pine reported that the State Planning Board will open

bids for installation of certain fire escapes at the Reno

Campus, and recommended that the Administration be author-

ized to concur in the award of bids by the State Planning

Board.



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

unanimously that the above recommendation be approved.



19. Chemistry Building, Nevada Southern University



Chancellor Moyer and Mr. Pine reviewed the progress of this

project (Mr. Hancock was unable to be present). Mr. Pine

explained the problems encountered in securing the State

General Obligation Bond monies, explaining that the bonds

would probably not be sold until September and therefore

the money would probably not be available until October.

Not the primary delay, but nevertheless a delay, is the

amount of information being requested by the architects

engaged in the competition. However, Mr. Pine indicated

that the information will be available when the money is

available and will not delay the project.



20. Remodeling of Sage Building, Stead Campus



Mr. Pine presented the preliminary plans for the remodeling

of the Sage building at the Stead Campus for Desert Research

activities. This remodeling project is to be funded from

Fleischmann Foundation money at an approximately cost of

$75,000.



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

without dissent that the preliminary plans be approved as

submitted.

Moyer to approve affiliation of Nu Sigma Epsilon Sorority

with the National Sorority known as Phi Mu. President

Armstrong reviewed for the Board the background material

the request.



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

unanimously that the request of Nu Sigma Upsilon at NSU to

affiliate with the National Sorority, Phi Mu, be approved.



22. ROTC



Dr. Anderson reviewed for the Board the material which has

been distributed during the Board's consideration of the

faculty recommendation that Military Science no longer be a

requirement for graduation and asked for an expression from

the Regents.



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

Mrs. Magee dissenting, that mandatory ROTC be retained on

the Reno Campus.



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

unanimously that the Administration be requested to appoint

a Military Affairs Review Board for continuing study of the

ROTC program, and requested that annual reports be made to

the Board of Regents.



23. Progress Report on Reorganization



President Armstrong reviewed the minutes of the first meet-

ing of the Ad Hoc Committee on Reorganization and invited

suggestions from the Board of Regents for consultants to

be invited to meet the Board at its October meeting. It

was agreed that a two day meeting (October 13 and 14) would

provide sufficient time for the consultants to meet with

the Ad Hoc Committee and then with the Board of Regents.



President Armstrong also submitted to the Board the follow-

ing memorandum from the Executive Board of the Reno Campus

Senate, transmitted through the Chancellor and President.



July 31, 1967



Subject: Action taken by the University Senate at its

meeting July 31, 1967



1. The Senate requests that the following resolution be

transmitted to the Board of Regents through the

Chancellor:



Motion made and seconded as follows:



That the Senate transmit to the Board of Regents, and

instruct the two faculty members on the Committee as

follows: Because of inseparable connection between the

educational purpose and administrative structure and the

need for discussion and analysis of all proposals, we

request that the Regents take no action changing the

present system until the faculties have had ample

opportunity to consider and make recommendations on

this matter in the Fall."



The Senate voted to approve the motion.



2. The Senate further requests that the following resolu-

tion be transmitted to the Board of Regents through the

Chancellor:



Motion made and seconded as follows:



The University Senate, Reno Campus, desires to express

to the Board of Regents its confidence in the personal

and academic attributes of Chancellor N. Edd Miller.



Current deliberations about possible changes in the

administrative structure of the University ought, we

realize, to be conducted without reference to individ-

uals. We have confidence that a due separation between

choices of policy and choices of persons will be

maintained. Obviously, however, the two kinds of

considerations are related; no one, for example, can

invest a non-existent office.



Accordingly, we would like the Board of Regents to know

our strong conviction that in any case a desirable

determination would preserve to the University Dr. N.

Edd Miller.



The Senate voted to approve the motion.



24. Association of Governing Boards Meeting



Dr. Anderson commented on an announcement received from the

AGB concerning a special conference for trustees of Colleges

and Universities to be held at the Washington-Hilton, Wash-

ington, D. C. on October 10-11, 1967 and requested that the

Board consider sending at least two Regents.



25. Dr. Anderson reminded the Board of the scheduled meeting in

Las Vegas in September and the Board agreed by consensus

that the meeting should be held on Saturday, September 9.



26. Dr. Anderson introduced Raymond L. Finehout, newly appointed

Director of University Relations, who spoke briefly to the

Board on his activities during his first two weeks at the

University. He indicated that he hoped to have a more

comprehensive report on the progress of the development

program by the September meeting of the Board.



27. Purchase of Trailers at Nevada Southern University



President Armstrong presented for confirmation the results

of the recent telephone poll concerning the acquisition of

trailers for NSU. Board approval had been requested to

(1) purchase the trailers at a total in-place cost of

approximately $48,066 and (2) that $34,066 of this expense

be funded by use of the NSU Capital Improvement Fund.

Results of the telephone poll conducted on Tuesday, July 25,

were as follows:



Dr. Fred Anderson yes

Mr. Thomas Bell yes

Mr. Archie Grant yes, he agreed that the trailers

should be purchased but did

not approve of using the

Capital Improvement Fund.

Mr. Procter Hug, Jr. yes

Mr. Harold Jacobsen yes

Dr. Louis Lombardi yes

Mrs. Richard Magee yes, but with reservations. She

strongly objects to trailers

on Campus.

Mr. R. J. Ronzone yes

Mr. Arthur Smith, Jr. - Could not be reached. Out of

town.

Mr. Albert Seeliger yes

Mrs. Thomas White yes



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

roll call vote that the above votes taken by telephone be

confirmed.



28. Name of NSU Dormitory



Mr. Ronzone suggested that it was timely to select a name

for the Dormitory at NSU and following the policy adopted

earlier by the Board to use the names of Nevada towns; he

moved and Dr. White seconded that the NSU Dormitory be named

Tonopah Hall. Motion carried unanimously.



The meeting adjourned at 1:30 P.M.
