to the Regents as follows:



INVESTMENT COMMITTEE OF THE BOARD OF REGENTS



The Committee met at 3:30 P.M. in the Office of the Presi-

dent. Present were Board Members: Regents Lombardi and

Hug; Public Member, Julius Bergen; Ex-Officio Members,

President Armstrong and Business Manager Humphrey. Repre-

senting the First National Bank Trust Department were Mr.

R. O. Kwapil, Vice President and Sr. Trust Officer, and

Mr. J. C. Troyer.



The Committee reviewed the memorandum dated May 22, 1962,

to President Armstrong from Mr. Humphrey, with attachments

1, 2 and 3. Mr. Humphrey's letter of May 22, 1962 to the

Commissioner of Internal Revenue requesting a ruling on the

tax liability of the University's endowment fund and the

IRS reply were discussed. It was agreed that, in view of

the reply and the fact that the fund is not now subject to

tax, no further action should be taken at this point.



It was noted that the amendment to the Managing Agency

Agreement No. AG-522 proposed by Mr. Kwapil and recommended

by Mr. Humphrey was not approved by the Attorney General's

Office. In a letter dated June 14, 1962, Chief Deputy John

Porter stated "... we nevertheless are of the opinion that

the Board of Regents, as trustees of such (endowment) funds,

may not legally divest themselves of their trust obligations

by delegating to the Bank the authority and power to make

final decisions relative to investments". In view of this

legal advice the Committee agreed that it would continue to

review all major changes in the portfolio but that in case

of relatively small additions to the portfolio or an emer-

gency, any two of the voting members might act on behalf

of the Committee (i. e., Messrs. Lombardi, Hug or Bergen).

It was also agreed that the Bank would notify Mr. Humphrey

of any such action taken between regular Committee meetings.



The second recommendation contained in Mr. Humphrey's memo-

randum of May 22 re: accounting for the endowment pool on

a "shares value method" basis, similar to an open end in-

vestment trust, was approved by the Committee.



It was agreed that Mr. Humphrey should request a letter of

advice from the Attorney General concerning the legality

of the present arrangement whereby the assets of various

trusts are comingled. It was the consensus that if his

advice was that the present method was not in conformity

with State law, corrective legislation would be requested.



Mr. Humphrey stated that in August, 1959, and January, 1960,

the W. E. Travis gift of $279,066.57, which was dedicated to

the construction of an addition to the Jot Travis Student

Union, was invested as part of the investment pool. Based

on the June 30, 1962 valuation of the portfolio, the equity

of this account is $309,869.80 and this amount will have

to be withdrawn from the pool by January 1, 1963.



The Committee reviewed the changes in portfolio recommended

by the Bank. The following information is made a part of

the record.



U. S. Government Issues. In view of the need for cash by

January, 1963, it was agreed to sell $100,000 par value of

U. S. Treasury Bonds more than the Bank's original recom-

mendation.



Municipals. It was noted the portfolio includes $84,000 par

value of Fernley Water District bonds and $60,000 par value

Henderson G. O. bonds. Although no recommendation had been

made by the Bank, they did agree that these issues were in-

appropriate in a tax free portfolio. They observed however,

that: (1) the bonds were in the portfolio when the Bank

assumed responsibility in July, 1959; and (2) these bonds

were not readily marketable. It was agreed that the Bank

would secure quotes on the market value at this time and

further consideration could be given to disposal.



Preferred Stocks. Mr. Bergen stated that he had no objec-

tion to sale of 1346 shares of Standard Brands, 3.50 Pfd.

He did recommend that the Standard Brands common stock be

retained. He observed that it represented over 40% of the

common stock holding and 25% of the entire portfolio but

that its growth potential remained strong and that he be-

lieved it was in the University's best interest to retain

the stock. The Committee agreed that Mr. Bergen was in

an excellent position to follow Standard Brands' performance

and his advice was sound.



Real Estate. The Bank had made no recommendation concerning

the Clay-Peters Building stock. It was noted that the yield

for 1961-62 was $1800 or 2.77% of the cost or carry value of

the stock. Mr. Kwapli stated that $1200 of this was a div-

idend and $600 was the amount paid him as salary by the

Clay-Peters Building Corporation. It was noted that the

$65,000 value represented 1/4 of the stock and that the

Clay-Peters Building had been appraised at $260,000 when

the stock was received. The other stockholders are: Ray

S. Frazer, Mrs. Frank Humphrey, both of Reno and both hold-

ing 25% and a trust in California which holds 25%. Mr.

Kwapil reported that a 7-year lease had recently been en-

tered into with Joseph Magnin Co. for the major part of the

building. He recommended holding the stock for appreciation

in land value. The Committee agreed to this course of

action.



The recommended portfolio changes were reviewed in detail.

It was agreed that in view of: (1) the need for $309,860.80

of cash by January 1, 1963; (2) market changes since the

Bank's recommendations were made; and (3) Committee review

and comments, it would be desirable for the Bank to amend

their recommendations for portfolio changes. Mr. Troyer

stated that this information would be distributed to the

Committee members on Friday, August 24. It was agreed to

meet for lunch at the Holiday Hotel Tuesday, August 28 to

review the amended recommendations.



Meeting adjourned at 5:30 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



Neil D. Humphrey

Acting Secretary

with bid notice which had duly appeared in local papers.

The bid form called for base bid to furnish all plant,

labor, materials, equipment, and perform all the work

in strict accordance with the contract documents, with

The reporter and representatives of various firms left

the meeting.



It was noted that the bids were over the architect's

estimate. Mr. Hellman offered to contact the low

bidder to determine the trouble spots in the bid, and

to attempt to reduce the bid somewhat. He expressed

doubt that it could be reduced by $80,000, the amount

necessary to bring the bid within the amount available.



Respectfully submitted,



Alice Terry

Secretary



Dr. Armstrong reported that following the bid opening,

consultation was held with the architect and the low

bidder. They recommended the possibility of a cost

plus contract, and the matter was referred to the

Office of the Attorney General, whose opinion was that

this procedure was not desirable. The Fleischmann

Foundation Trustees then voted to grant an additional

sum of $80,000 (reported under Grants in Item 5).



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the acceptance of

the bid and the awarding of the contract, as reported

lution for Housing Revenue Certificates, copies of which

were distributed to the members of the Board present and

read individually by them. Mr. Porter had reviewed the

Resolution, which contemplates the developments which have

taken place since the last action by the Board. President

Armstrong recommended approval of the Resolution.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that, subject to appropriate

amendment to reflect changes in the composition of this

Board and of the Attorney General, as designated Legal

Officer, this Board adopt as Resolution No. 62-4, the doc-

ument consisting of 33 pages, numbered consecutively from

1 through 33, PROVIDING FOR THE PUBLIC SALE OF THE UNIVER-

SITY OF NEVADA HOUSING REVENUE CERTIFICATES OF 1959, IN

Building which could be loaned or donated for use of the

Panther Valley Fire Department. He presented also a request

from the Adjutant General, Carson City, for one Butler type

building for the Nevada Army National Guard for use at the

that the University cannot predict when or if any of these

buildings may become surplus.



Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously that the request not be granted at this time.



10. Questa Property



President Armstrong reported that the First National Bank

Trust Department had received two offers for the Questa

property, but, upon the advice of the Attorney General,

both offers had been rejected and the property advertised

for public sale for one month. No bids were received as a

result of this advertisement procedure. Mr. Porter's legal

advice was requested as to the next step. He advised that

the property should be advertised once more and if no ac-

ceptable bids are received, then realtors should be noti-

fied of the availability of the property. He expressed

the opinion also that the house and lot must be regarded

as public property and handled accordingly, and that there-

fore the Governor must approve the sale. It was agreed in

discussion that all possible efforts should be made to sell

the property for a price as near as possible to the ap-

praised value.



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

unanimously that the Administration be authorized to adver-

tize the Questa property for sale for a period not to ex-

ceed fourteen days and also to inform selected realtors

and the Bank to see whether or not the University can get

a desirable offer for purchase.

Regents of their desire to have a Junior College in Fallon

and suggesting that the University Experiment Farm (Newlands

Station) be used as the site.



In view of the above two requests and looking forward to

other probable similar requests, the following policies

were recommended by the President to serve as guidelines in

dealing with the problem of developing additional Campuses

of the University throughout the State:



1. First priority must be given to the development of ex-

isting Campuses at Reno and Las Vegas. The Master Plans

call for building the Reno Campus to an enrollment of

7,000 by 1972 and an eventual enrollment of 15,000 and

for building the Las Vegas Campus to an enrollment of

1,700 by 1972 and an eventual enrollment of 10,000. It

does not appear likely that additional Campuses, serving

the same basic purposes and student clientele, should be

developed before 1972.



2. As part of its Master Plan, the University adopts the

policy that the establishment of a two-year College

Campus would require an enrollment of approximately 300

to 500 full-time equivalent students within commuting

distance (approximately 50 miles) and the establishment

of a four-year College Campus would require a commuting

enrollment of approximately 600 to 1000 full-time equiv-

alent students, as determined by University studies.

These are minimum figures to guarantee a sound operation

educationally and financially and to justify a large in-

vestment in new physical plants. This policy means that

the establishment of additional Campuses (other than

Statewide Services Off-Campus Centers) is some distance

in the future.



3. However, where offers of land are made to the University

by communities or private owners for the purpose of

serving as possible future Campus sites, the University

will seriously consider such gifts. The donors should

understand University policy, as outlined above, and the

land should meet the requirments outlined below.



4. Any gift of land to the University for possible use as a

future branch Campus of the University should be in line

with the following requirements:



a. No future Campus site will be accepted until all

possible sites in the community have been studied by

a survey team appointed by the President.



b. A minimum acreage for possible future Campuses

should be 100 acres for a two-year College and 150

acres for a four-year College. (Approximately 500

acres is required for a University.)



c. No restrictions should be placed on a gift of land

to the University, except that it is to be used for

educational purposes. It should be clearly under-

stood that the University has the right to sell or

exchange the land, or any portion of the area and

for the same purpose, if this later proves neces-

sary. It also should be clearly understood that

there are no commitments by the University or time

limitations involved as to the development of a

branch Campus.



5. The University of Nevada is a Statewide Institution with

a responsibility for all public post-high school educa-

tion. Therefore, study will be given to the possibility

of meeting the interim needs of communities away from

the present Campuses by:



a. A greatly increased effort by the Statewide Services

Division and



b. A State-supported scholarship program that will en-

able qualified students in these communities to come

into the Reno and Las Vegas Campuses at approximate-

ly the same cost as the local students.



This approach will be much more enconomical and educa-

tionally sound than attempting to develop a number of

small branch Campuses.



6. The University, through its Statewide Services Division,

also will work with the State Department of Education

and county school districts to assist in the early de-

velopment of post-high school, non-transfer, vocational

courses for high school graduates who are not interested

in or qualified for the traditional academic courses.

Such courses could utilize high school facilities and

could be offered in the late afternoons and evenings.

Elko High School, for example, has an excellent new

shop facility that could be so utilized.



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

unanimously that the above policy statement be adopted.



It was also agreed that the University Experimental Farm

near Fallon should in no case be considered as a possible

site for a future Junior College.



16. Special Use of University Facilities



This item, held over from the last meeting to permit further

study, was submitted with certain revisions of wording.

President Armstrong pointed out that it is in keeping with

present Policy and Procedures Regarding the Special Use of

University Facilities, but makes them more specific. He

recommended approval, as follows:



1. Policies



(These policies will not be construed to affect adverse-

ly traditional events previously approved, such as the

Shrine Circus and Harrah's Christmas Party for Kids.)



a. The University's functions of instruction, research

and public service are primary and take precedence

over any other activities in the use of University

facilities.



b. The special use of University facilities must be

for activities which, broadly construed, promote the

welfare of the University or the purposes which the

University serves.



c. Freedom to speak and to hear will be maintained for

students and faculty members, and University poli-

cies and procedures will not be used to prevent a

full and frank exchange of ideas.



d. Subversion and other illegal activities will not be

tolerated.



e. Law and order must be maintained on Campus and Uni-

versity regulations must be adhered to.



f. During each academic year, every effort should be

made to present a balanced program of speakers and

ideas.



g. Discussion of highly controversial issues will be

approved only when every effort is made to present

two or more aspects of the subject by qualified

speakers within a reasonable period of time.



h. No exploitation of the name of the University will

be allowed.



i. No efforts at conversion and solicitation by members

of political or religious groups will be permitted

on the Campus.



j. Activities which by their nature, method of promot-

ing or general handling tend to involve the Univer-

sity in political or religious activities in a par-

tisan way will not be permitted.



k. University facilities may not be used for the pur-

pose of raising money to aid projects directly con-

nected with some authorized activity of the Univer-

sity.



l. No literature, other than programs, may be distri-

buted free or sold in connection with meetings or

events on Campus without permission obtained in

advance.



m. The University cannot delegate responsibility for

policing or handling crowds, directing traffic and

parking, setting up special facilities, or cleaning

up after activities. Any expense entailed must be

met by the sponsoring organization, and a deposit

may be requested in advance. Charges will be as-

sessed for all damages.



2. Procedures



Applications may be submitted by the following:



a. Schools, Colleges, or other major divisions of the

University.



b. Recognized organizations of University faculty and

staff.



c. Recognized organizations of bona fide students of

the University which must comply with rules and

regulations established by the Associated Students

of the University of Nevada and the Office of Stu-

dent Affairs on the Reno Campus and by the Confed-

erated Students and the Office of Student Personnel

at Nevada Southern.



d. Non-University organizations may on occasion be

granted permission to hold meetings or events on

Campus if such meetings or events promote the wel-

fare of the University or the purposes which the

University serves. This classification covers

particularly cultural, scientific, scholarly, edu-

cational or professional organizations of a State-

wide, national or international nature. Facilities

will not be made available to other kinds of organ-

izations or to community groups not associated with

the University.



The procedure in applying for permission to use Univer-

sity facilities for meetings or events is as follows:



a. The appropriate application form must be obtained,

filled out, signed, and returned to the Office of

the Executive Vice President at least two weeks

prior to the event. In the case of students, this

is done through the Second Vice President of the

ASUN and the Dean of Women in the Office of Student

Affairs. In the case of the Southern Regional

Division at Las Vegas, this is done through the

Office of the Dean there.



b. If the proposed event is within the scope of the

policy established by the Board of Regents, it will

be cleared through the offices concerned in order

to determine that the requested facilities and serv-

ices are available.



c. The applicant then will be notified that the event

has been scheduled, it will be entered on the ac-

tivities calendar, and all offices affected will be

sent a copy of the application form to assure co-

ordination.



Because of their specialized nature, the following fa-

cilities have additional requirements that must be

observed:



a. Gymnasium, Stadium, and Athletic Grounds:



Events which might interfere with the normal use of

the Gymnasium floor or the Stadium turf cannot be

scheduled. If locker rooms are to be used, secu-

rity must be provided for equipment and personal

property. If an admission charge is to be assess-

ed, there must be adequate control of ticket sales

and reserved seats.



No smoking is allowed in the Gymnasium.



Concessions must be cleared with the Director of

Student Services on the Reno Campus and through the

Office of the Dean on the Las Vegas Campus.



b. Fine Arts Theatre:



Because of the highly specialized nature of the

equipment involved, it is necessary to have a train-

ed technician present at all times when the Fine

Arts Theatre is in use. An hourly charge will be

assessed to cover his services.



No smoking is allowed in the Theatre.



c. The Sarah Hamilton Fleischmann Room:



Living room occupancy (first section) is limited to

30 people.



Note taking, etc., must be confined to the seminar

room.



Furniture in living room is not to be moved.



Cooking in kitchen and patio only.



Food to be served in second and third sections, and

patio, only.



d. Jot Travis Union and Commons:



A Union employee is to be on hand for all events un-

less advance permission is obtained from the Union

Office. Ordinarily no charge is made for this serv-

ice to a student group.



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

mously that the above policy statement be approved.



17. Nevada Federation of Women's Clubs



President Armstrong read for the record the following Reso-

lution adopted by the Nevada Federation of Women's Clubs

assembled at Hawthorne, Nevada, April 9-10, 1962:



WHEREAS, Morris Hall stands on the Campus of the Univer-

sity of Nevada as a monument to the Legislator who in-

troduced the bill in the Congress of the United States

of America which authorized the creation of "LAND GRANT"

Colleges; and



WHEREAS, the members of Nevada Federation of Women's

Clubs believe that such a land mark which has historical

value should be preserved; and



WHEREAS, the Regents of the University of Nevada have

voted to restore and maintain Morrill Hall, be it there-

fore



RESOLVED, that the Nevada Federation of Women's Clubs

go on record as commending the Board of Regents of the

University of Nevada for this action; and



RESOLVED, that a copy of this resolution be spread upon

the minutes of the convention assembled in Hawthorne,

Nevada and a copy sent to the Secretary of the Board of

Regents of the University of Nevada.



18. American Association of University Professors



President Armstrong read a letter dated June 8, 1962, from

Edmund R. Barmettler, President of AAUP, regarding action of

the Board covering waivers of tuition and certain fees for

professional staff members and others. The letter extended

appreciation and strong approval by AAUP, and stated that

action of this type will enhance the ability of the Univer-

sity to attract desirable faculty, and that the AAUP encour-

ages and supports the Board of Regents in their efforts to

make the University of Nevada a most excellent institution

of higher learning.



19. Disaster Planning



Mimeographed report of the Faculty Ad Hoc Committee Disaster

Planning had been distributed to the members of the Board

prior to the meeting. Dr. Armstrong discussed the report,

and stated that the desire at this time was merely for the

Board to indicate whether or not it agreed in principle.

The Board agreed by consensus to approve the principle of

Disaster Planning as presented. Chairman Grant asked that

the Committee be thanked for its study and comprehensive

report.



The Faculty Committee on Disaster Planning made recommenda-

tions with regard to fallout shelters on the Campus, none

of which are suitable for the purpose without some rehabil-

itation. Mr. Rogers, who had particpated in the study, re-

ported that $33,000 would be necessary to bring the shelters

up to standard, and in addition $10,000 would be required

for installation of a well, pump, generator and connections

to provide water to the shelters. It was agreed by consen-

sus that the President be authorized to proceed along the

lines of the recommendations and report back to the Board at

a later date, at which time consideration would be given

concerning expenditure of funds.



20. Technical Education Program



Mimeographed copies of a "Proposed Technical Education

Program for the State of Nevada" had been distributed to

members of the Board prior to the meeting. President

Armstrong discussed the report and asked the Regents, if

they agree, to go on record as approving the program in

principle. He pointed out that when such work is on post-

high school level, the University of Nevada should assume

responsibility for the program.



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

unanimously that the Board go on record as approving the

program in principle, that the Administration be instructed

to continue the study now in progress, and to develop sup-

plementary information and a necessary budget for the pro-

gram.



21. Little Valley



President Armstrong presented the request of Mr. Lathrop,

Secretary-Treasurer of the Franktown Creek Irrigation Com-

pany, proposing the development of a dam and reservoir in

Little Valley. The matter had been referred to the Board

of Control of the George Whittell Forest and Wildlife Area,

which encompasses Little Valley. Report was received from

the Board of Control and the following conclusion, which

appeared in the minutes of the Board for December 1, 1960,

reiterated:



"After further discussion of the request, made by adjacent

land owners at the November 17 meeting, for permission to

construct a dam on a reported original damsite, it was de-

cided that we would not extend to the ranchers the right to

build the dam. Mr. Whittell's permission would be necessary

under the provisions of the deed and he is not likely to

permit it; further, the construction of a dam would be op-

posed to the purpose for which the University originally

requested the land."



President Armstrong recommended that the action of the Board

of Control be upheld.



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

unanimously that the recommendation of President Armstrong

and the Board of Control for the Whittell Forest and Wild-

life Area be approved, and that Mr. Lathrop be so notified.



22. Student Physical Examination



Mr. Porter had brought to the attention of the Regents pro-

visions of Nevada Revised Statutes 633.140 (Rights and

Duties of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons) as follows:



1. Osteopathic physicians licensed under this chapter

shall have the same rights as physicians and surgeons

of other schools of medicine with respect to the treat-

ment of cases or the holding of offices in public in-

stitutions.



2. Osteopathic physicians shall observe and be subject to

all State and municipal regulations relative to report-

ing all births and deaths in all matters pertaining to

the public health, with equal right and obligations as

physicians of other schools of medicine. The reports

shall be accepted by the Officers of the Department to

which the same are made.



3. Osteopathic physicians and surgeons licensed under this

chapter shall have the same rights as physicians and

surgeons of other schools of medicine.



His opinion, in view of the above, was that University regu-

lations should be amended to include physical examinations

of students by Osteopaths. The matter was discussed. Re-

gent Anderson referred to a previous opinion rendered by

Alan Bible, when Attorney General, and it was agreed that

action be deferred to permit further study and research.



23. National Association of College and University Attorneys



Mr. Porter called attention to the meeting of the Executive

Board to be held in Columbia, Missouri, October 19-20. It

was noted that Mr. Porter is Vice-President of the Associa-

tion and that the 1963 Conference is to be held in Nevada.

President Armstrong recommended that Mr. Porter be author-

ized to attend the Executive Board meeting as legal repre-

sentative of the University.



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

mously by roll call vote that Mr. Porter be authorized

to attend the meeting at University expense.



24. Association of Governing Boards



The Fortieth Annual Meeting of AGB is to be held at the

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, October 9 through 13.

There was general discussion as to the number of represen-

tatives which should be authorized from University funds.



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

roll call vote, with Regents Anderson and Arnold voting

"no", and all other Regents voting "aye", that three members

of the Board be authorized to attend the meeting at Univer-

sity expense.



The meeting recessed at 4:00 P.M. until the following morning.



The recessed meeting of the Board of Regents convened in the

Senate Chambers in Carson City, Nevada, on Saturday, August 25,

1962, with the Regents and all University Officials present who

were present on the previous day. Mr. Porter and Mr. Barrett

were also present. Messrs. Laxalt, Smith and Levy covered the

meeting for the Press. The meeting was called to order at 9:20

A.M. by Chairman Grant.



25. Building Committee



Minutes of the meetings of the Building Committee of the

Board of Regents held on June 29, 1962 and on July 27, 1962

were discussed by Dr. Lombardi, Acting Chairman, as follows:



BOARD OF REGENTS BUILDING COMMITTEE

4:00 P.M., June 29, 1962



Present: Dr. Lombardi, Mr. Arnold, Mr. Hug, Vice President

Young, Engineer Rogers, Mr. Gene Empey, Mr. C. V. Isbell,

Mr. Bruce Thompson, Mr. Irving Sandorf, and Mr. E. H. Fitz,

Northern Nevada Executive Committee of the State Planning

Board; Mr. William Hancock and Mr. Joseph Littlefield, State

Planning Board staff.



The meeting was held in the Fish and Game building confer-

ence room on Valley Road for the purpose of selecting archi-

tects for funded design of projects for the fiscal year

1962-63.



A copy of the "Fiscal Year 1962-63 University Design

Project A & E Selection" as prepared by Mr. Hancock was

studied.



The following selections were made:



1. Design of Home Management Residence



The Building Committee of the Board of Regents recom-

mended Mr. Edward Parsons, and the recommendation was

accepted by the State Planning Board.



2. Design of Physical Science Building



The Planning Board submitted the names of the following

firms:



a. Edward Parsons

b. Lockard & Casazza

c. Berger & Frankowski



Mr. Hancock stated in his opinion, Lockard & Casazza

were best qualified to design this project, as that

firm had experience in science building design, and

that Mr. Lockard, because of his mechanical experience,

could coordinate that phase of design with the other

phases. Mr. Sandorf expressed the same opinion. Mr.

Hancock stated that he was associated with Lockard &

Casazza until a year ago, which placed him in a rather

embarrassing position in recommending the firm of

Lockard & Casazza to design this project, but he would

recommend that firm anyway.



The Building Committee of the Board of Regents recom-

mended the firm of De Longchamps & O'Brien to design

this project, as that firm has had experience in design-

ing science projects and projects of this size.



Mr. Hancock pointed out to the group that De Longchamps

& O'Brien had budget trouble on some projects, and that

the Engineering-Mines project was delayed during design

for a long period of time.



Mr. Empey suggested the selection of architect to design

the Physical Science building be passed over at this

time, and considered after the other selections had been

made.



3. Advance Plan Remodeling of Mackay Science Building



Since De Longchamps & O'Brien is the suggested firm to

advance plan this project, and is still under consider-

ation for the design of the Physical Science project,

Mr. Empey suggested that this selection be deferred

until the remaining ones had been made.



4. Advance Planning of the Education Buildings



The Planning Board submitted the names of the following

firms:



a. Ferris, Erskine & Calef

b. A. Alegre



The firm of Ferris, Erskine & Calef was recommended by

the Building Committee of the Board of Regents to do

the advance planning for the College of Education proj-

ect. This recommendation was accepted by the State

Planning Board Committee.



5. Design of the Fine Arts Building, Las Vegas



The Planning Board submitted the names of the following

firms:



a. James Mc Daniels

b. Jack Knighton

c. Julius Gabriele



James Mc Daniels was recommended by the Board of Regents

Building Committee for the design of the Fine Arts

Building project, and this recommendation was accepted

by the State Planning Board Committee.



6. Design of a Men's Dormitory, Reno



The Planning Board submitted the names of the following

firms:



a. Selden & Stewart

b. Raymond Hellmann



The firm of Selden & Stewart was recommended by the

Board of Regents Building Committee to accomplish the

design of the Men's Dormitory for the Reno Campus, and

this recommendation was accepted by the State Planning

Board Committee. There was discussion as to this proj-

ect being so designed that it could be repeated without

redesign, but with only site adaption and supervision by

the architect. This would save considerable time and

money.



Mr. Empey then returned to the selection of an architectural

firm to accomplish the advance plan and remodel of Mackay

Science Hall, stating that he realized that if De Longchamps

& O'Brien were selected, this would remove them from con-

sideration of the Physical Science building. After a gener-

al discussion the Board of Regents Building Committee agreed

that De Longchamps & O'Brien be the architectural firm to

advance plan this project.



The architectural firm to accomplish the design of the

Physical Science project was again discussed, and the firm

of Lockard & Casazza was agreed upon by both committees to

do the design.



Mr. Graham Erskine discussed the Jot Travis Addition project

and stated that his present estimate for this project was

$27,000 over the construction budget. He requested the use

of deductive rather than additive alternates, as had been

the policy of the State Planning Board, due to the fact that

his design work was complete and it would be less work to

shop deductive alternates. He recommended the deletion of

the Bookstore finish, which would amount to approximately

$15,000, be an alternate; and the deletion of the furnish-

ing and installation of the compressor be an alternate

which would amount to approximately $17,000. He recommend-

ed a third alternate, leaving the Snack Bar "as is", amount-

ing to approximately $30,000. The consensus was that the

compressor should be installed under the base bid.



The meeting adjourned at 5:30 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



Kenneth Young

Acting Secretary



BOARD OF REGENTS BUILDING COMMITTEE

3:15 P.M., July 27, 1962



The Building Committee of the Board of Regents met in

Morrill Hall, room 205, at 3:15 P.M. on the above date.

Dr. Lombardi, Acting Chairman of the Committee, presided.

Present were: Regents Grant, Magee, Arnold, Lombardi.

Also present were: Messrs. John Rodgers, Hurley and

Kirkpatrick of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; University

Engineer Rogers; Mr. Baker, representing the State Plann-

ing Board; and President Armstrong.



The first item of business was a review of the proposed

organic Master Plan presented by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

for the Las Vegas Campus of the University. Mr. Rodgers

presented several sketches including certain revisions

recommended by the University Contact Committee after re-

view by that committee.



One sketch presented showed the plan for an estimated full

time equivalent enrollment of 1700 students, presumably to

be reached by 1972, and the second sketch was for a full

time equivalent enrollment of 10,000.



Mr. Rodgers recommended that every effort be made to ex-

change properties in the area, such as that proposed by the

Trinity Episcopal Church, so as to develop a rectangular

area for the Campus instead of the present Z-shaped Campus

now owned. This would involve the sale or exchange of pres-

ent holdings along Flamingo Road for properties lying to

the southwest of the present Campus. Mr. Rodgers pointed

out that without the acquisition of more land than is pres-

ently owned, adequate provision cannot be made for an esti-

mated enrollment of 10,000 FTE, to include all academic

facilities, Dormitories, etc., and still provide enough

parking and married student housing.



The plans as presented accordingly contemplate seeking leg-

islative authorization to dispose of certain lands now owned

by the University along Flamingo Road and to acquire an

additional eighty (80) acres to the west and south. This

would involve an increase in present land holdings of ap-

proximately forty (40) acres.



After discussion, by motion which was accepted, it was voted

to approve the organic Plan for the Las Vegas Campus as pre-

sented by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, subject to approval by

the University Contact Committee.



Mr. Hug entered the meeting at 4:30 P.M.



The Committee then reviewed a preliminary list of proposed

capital improvements for the 1963-65 biennium as prepared

by Engineer Rogers. Certain comments and suggestions were

made and it was agreed that Mr. Rogers will develop cost

figures for these capital improvements and incorporate

suggestions made by the Committee. These proposals will

be reviewed by the Building Committee prior to the next

meeting of the Board of Regents.



It was agreed that Dean Carlson should be requested to con-

duct a Dormitory and Dining Room survey during the forth-

coming registration period at Nevada Southern in order to

document fully the needs for such facilities on that Campus.

This information can then be used to justify a request for

a loan from HHFA under the College Housing Loan Program.



The Committee then discussed at some length the most recent

statement to the Press made by Francis Brooks, Director of

Purchasing, which was published on July 22, 1962. It was

agreed that President Armstrong should write a letter to

the Governor, reviewing all the facts in the case regarding

the Library furniture, with copies to the members of the

Board of Regents.



Engineer Rogers presented a request for a right-of-way from

Sierra Pacific Power Company on the Main Station Farm. Af-

ter discussion, it was agreed by motion to approve this

request subject to a telephone or mail poll of other Board

members.



The meeting adjourned at 5:15 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



Charles J. Armstrong



Motion by Mr. Arnold, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried

unanimously that the minutes be accepted.



Mr. Grant discussed the Las Vegas Campus land area, saying

that the Planning Board believes that it would be better

if the Campus could be straightened out in shape by ex-

change of property.



26. Dormitory and Dining Hall, Las Vegas Campus



Dormitory needs in the Southern Regional Division were dis-

cussed, and President Armstrong suggested that the Adminis-

tration be authorized to work with the Planning Board and

with HHFA to determine the best possible method to secure

Dormitory construction in Las Vegas.



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

unanimously that the Administration be authorized to make

a complete survey of all possible methods of financing a

Dormitory at the Southern Regional Division of the Univer-

sity and to discuss the matter with the State Planning

Board and with HHFA, to determine the best possible way of

providing a Dormitory and Dining Hall for the Las Vegas

Campus; this may include funding of dining facilities by

the State and the HHFA to provide funds for the Dormitory,

with the revenue of both going to retire the bonds.



27. Capital Improvement Program



Dr. Anderson reported on the meeting of the Building

Committee held on Friday morning, August 24. Purpose of

the meeting was to consider the building and other facil-

ities program for the next biennium with approximate costs,

and to establish priorities, for submission to the State

Planning Board.



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

unanimously that the report of the Building Committee be

accepted and that the Capital Improvements Program for the

1963-65 biennium be approved as follows:

28. Addition to Student Union



Architect Erskine and Mr. Kersey were present for this item

of business. Mr. Erskine displayed final plans and discuss-

ed them with the Regents. He explained that the State Plan-

ning Board went to the Office of the Attorney General for a

decision as to the responsibility for keeping within the

appropriation for building projects, and the opinion was

that it is the responsibility of the architect. He pointed

out, however, that contractors, in submitting bids, have

certain figures which architects do not have. In order to

be protected, the architects in this instance drew up a

list of alternates. He suggested that, if necessary, the

Student Union Board might be asked to finance the alternate

for moving the Bookstore downstairs. Otherwise that area

would be unfinished, except for the walls. Mr. Kersey spoke

for the students, saying that they want the Bookstore moved.

He believed that the Snackbar could get along as it is, if

necessary. Cost of placing the Bookstore in the basement

area was estimated at $25,000, and it was also Mr. Erskine's

opinion that the bids would run about that much over the

amount appropriated.



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

unanimously that the final plans, including alternates, be

approved.



29. Catholic Church Property



President Armstrong reported on progress in negotiations

with representatives of the Roman Catholic Church for pur-

chase of the property for Dormitory locations. The matter

was discussed and President Armstrong recommended that ac-

tion be taken to accept the offer of Reverend Thomas J.

Connolly, Agent for the Roman Catholic Church.



On July 20, 1962, offer was made by Reverend Thomas J.

Connolly, Agent for the Roman Catholic Church, based on re-

zoning of the St. Thomas Cemetery property. Mr. Humphrey

was authorized to arrange for re-appraisals to determine

whether or not the zoning change would have any influence

upon the value of the property. Appraisal report from J.

Brice Leggett stated that the property would have a market

value of $325,000 should the zoning change go into effect

in the immediate future. Appraisal report from Dale C. Bell

stated that the new estimate of value, under R-4 zoning, was

found to be $330,150.



Motion by Mr. Broadbent, seconded by Mr. Arnold, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the offer of the Roman

Catholic Church for the cemetery property be accepted at the

price of $331,405 and that of this amount $120,000 shall be

paid on or before August 20, 1962, $98,000 on or about De-

cember 15, 1962, and $113,405 90 days later, when the Uni-

versity takes posession, contingent upon favorable action on

rezoning; and that the Administration be authorized to nego-

tiate with the First National Bank of Nevada for a loan to

meet the above terms.



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

unanimously that the State Planning Board be asked to take

an option immediately to purchase the School of St. Albert

the Great property at its appraised value, which option is

for $2500 to be applied against purchase price of $211,095.



30. Layman Property



President Armstrong discussed the proposal of Mr. Humphrey

regarding the property deeded to the University by Mr. J.

D. Layman, income from which is used to support the Carrie

Brooks Layman Scholarships. In accepting the property, the

University pledged $200 per year to the scholarship fund,

with the balance of the income to be used for maintenance

of the residence. He reported that the house is in a bad

state of repair at the present time and needs major repair

on the roof and foundation. Rent received has been $50 per

month (with arrangement for the renter to do certain repair

work) and at present is $75 per month. Mr. Humphrey propos-

ed that further conferences be held with the Attorney Gen-

eral and with the family of Mr. Layman, and that, with their

approval and consent, the house be appraised, at an estimat-

ed cost of $350 to $400, and that it then be advertised for

sale, reserving the right to reject any and all bids. The

proceeds from the sale would be deposited in the Endowment

Fund for support of the Layman Scholarships.



The Regents discussed the proposal and took into consider-

ation the location of the property, probable increase in

value, and the possible future use of the University for

the property, which is located at 1027 North Sierra Street.

It was agreed, by consensus, that the matter be referred to

Mr. Porter for further study and consultation with Mr. Hum-

phrey, report to be made at the next meeting of the Board.



31. Little Valley



President Armstrong read a letter from Mr. Jim A. E. Wilson

of Sacramento, California, offering to sell approximately

1,009 acres of property adjoining the Little Valley holdings

to the University. It was noted that there are now no funds

available for such purpose.



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

unanimously that the matter be referred to the Administra-

tion for further study.



32. Furniture Samples



Dr. Anderson asked for clarification as to whether or not

the Building Committee of the Board of Regents is required

to examine furniture samples for all University projects.

He expressed himself that, if such action has been taken, it

is not feasible.



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

mously that, if such action appears in the minutes, it be

hereby rescinded.



Examination of the minutes of previous meetings showed that

action was taken on July 29, 1962 to authorize the Building

Committee to examine furniture samples for the Getchell

Library building. No action was taken at any time requir-

ing the Building Committee to examine furniture samples for

all University building projects.



33. Cornerstone, Library Nevada Southern



Dr. Armstrong reported that the Library building at the

Southern Regional Division is now ready for a cornerstone,

and suggested that a date be set. It was agreed that Presi-

dent Armstrong write to the Grand Lodge of Masons to see if

Friday, November 30, would be a convenient time for the

ceremony. If so, the Board of Regents would meet in Las

Vegas on that date.



34. Next Meeting



It was agreed that the next regular meeting of the Board

will be held in Reno on Saturday, October 6, at which time

bids for the HHFA revenue certificates will be received and

opened.



The meeting recessed at 11:40 A.M. for luncheon.



The recessed meeting was called to order by the Chairman at 1:30

P.M.



35. Building Committee, Elko



Since it is necessary that the October meeting of the Board

be held in Reno to receive bids, and the following meeting

must be held in Las Vegas to lay the cornerstone in the

Library building, it was agreed that the Building Committee

would represent the Board in a visit to Elko on Saturday,

November 10, to meet with Elko citizens and to look at land

offered for the site of a Junior College.



36. Biennial Budget



Copies of the proposed budget for the biennium 1963-64 and

1964-65 had previously been distributed to the Regents for

study. President Armstrong asked for questions and discuss-

ed certain aspects of the budget. He explained that the

budgets originate with the Department Chairmen, and are re-

viewed and revised by the Deans before being submitted to

the President. Deans' requests are then reviewed with each

Dean by the Vice President and Business Manager, and recom-

mendations made to the President. Each Dean is in turn

given a hearing by the President, with the Vice President

and Business Manager present, and final recommendations then

prepared by the President. Deans were asked to submit de-

tailed priority information with their requests, for the

guidance of the President. Mr. Humphrey noted that many new

clerical positions are requested on a 9-months basis, saving

about $1000 per year per new position.



It was noted in discussion that the budget includes provi-

sions for participation in social security which, if approv-

ed, means that the University will seek permissive legisla-

tion.



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

unanimously by roll call vote, that the budget as presented,

be approved.



Regent Hug complimented those who prepared the budget for

the helpful way in which it was presented.



At the suggestion of Mr. Arnold, the Chairman requested the Sec-

retary to write a note of thanks to Mr. Ed Kruse, Head of the

State Maintenance staff for cleaning and making the Senate Cham-

bers ready for the meeting on this date.



The meeting adjourned at 3:30 P.M.



The next meeting has been called for Saturday, October 6, 1962.

in Reno.
