         Opinion has been received from the Attorney General that

         gift money for such purpose.

     b)  Nielsen Property

         Awaiting an opinion from the Attorney General since the
         plan was dependent upon use of gift money for purchase,
         as proposed in the Blair property matter.

     c)  Capurro Property

         The State Planning Board, in the process of purchasing
         this property, learned that the acreage being considered
         does not agree with the original understanding of the
         University, and the Attorney General has been asked for
         an opinion.  Further report will be made at the next
         meeting of the Board.

     d)  Ladino Dairy

         Mr. Hayden referred to Mr. Rogers, who had been working
         on this matter.  A study of the deeds and survey was
         referred to the Attorney General, who advised in letter
         of August 29, 1958, as follows:

                                            August 29, 1958

             Honorable William R. Wood
             Acting President
             University of Nevada
             Reno, Nevada

             Dear Dr. Wood:

             This is in reply to your letter of August 27, 1958,
             regarding the request of Mr. Paul Elcano that the
             Board of Regents execute a quitclaim deed conveying
             to him a certain parcel of land lying immediately
             south of the Ladino Dairy Experimental Farm.

             We have studied the map left in this office by the
             University Engineers and have been familiarized with
             certain facts pertaining to the dispute which exists
             as to the ownership of this particular land.  We
             feel that inasmuch as Mr. Elcano's claim is osten-
             sibly based upon adverse possession, he should prove
             his claim before a Court.  Adverse possession in-
             cludes both questions of law and of fact and this
             office does not feel that it should assume any facts
             as established without a proper hearing in the mat-
             ter.

             We, therefore, advise that the Regents take no ac-
             tion at this time and that Mr. Elcano seek any re-
             lief to which he may be entitled through proper
             action.

                             Very truly yours,

                             Harvey Dickerson,
                             Attorney

                          By C. B. Tapscott
                             Deputy Attorney General

         Motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Mr. Thompson, carried
         unanimously that the Administration be authorized to
         proceed with the establishment of a fence on the prop-
         erty line as outlined in the deed from Mr. Fleischmann
         to the University of Nevada.

         The Secretary was directed to send a copy of the letter
         (above) to Clark Guild, Jr., Attorney for Mr. Elcano.

 6.  President Armstrong

     Mr. Grant called on Dr. Armstrong for a few words, and he
     stated:  "It is an honor and a privilege for me to serve
     the University and the people of the State.  I am deeply
     conscious of the responsibility and grateful for the con-
     fidence you have shown in me.  I shall devote by best ef-
     forts to carrying out that responsibility and to merit
     the confidence placed in me.  I know it will be a very
     great pleasure to work with the staff and with the Board
     of Regents."

     Mr. Grant responded by stating that the new President would
     have the whole hearted cooperation of the Board in making a
     better school out of the University of Nevada.

         in local papers.  Present:  Engineer Rogers, Comptroller
         Hayden and 2 members of bidding firms.

         Bids were opened by Mr. Hayden as follows:

                 Total          - $6,998.22 (actually $7,135.34)

             R. M. James, Inc. - no bid bond, certified or
             cashiers check enclosed

                 Total          - $4,570.00

             Christensen Plastering Company - accompanied by
             cashiers check
                 Artemisia Hall, Lathing and Plastering - $312.40
                 Work to start within 5 calendar days.

             Julius Caselli - accompanied by certified check
                 Artemisia Hall - $1,471.20
                 Hartman Hall   -  1,987.10
                 Lincoln Hall   -    700.00
                 Dining Hall    -    111.00
                 Total          - $4,269.30
                 Work to commence within 10 calendar days after
                 receipt of notice to proceed and to be completed
                 within 3 weeks.

         The bids were referred to the University Engineer for
         study and recommendation.

         Recommendation:  R. M. James failed to enclose a bid
         bond of any kind; therefore, his bid cannot be con-
         sidered.  Christensen Plastering Co. bid only on the
         plastering, which is included in the other bids.  He
         should have bid to a painting contractor to give the
         University a complete job.  Julius F. Caselli offered
         the low bid of $4,269.30, which is within the estimate
         prepared by this office.  It is recommended that Julius
         F. Caselli be awarded the work and a contract be drawn
         between that firm and the University.  Funds for this
         work are available in Dormitory budget.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                         /s/ James D. Rogers
                             University Engineer

         Approved:

         P. W. Hayden, Comptroller
         W. R. Wood, Acting President

         Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, car-
         ried unanimously that the recommendation and the award-
         ing of the contract be approved.

     first full-scale nuclear power plant to operate in the
     United States went critical on December 2, 1957.  On Decem-
     ber 18, the station began to produce electricity and on
     December 23 it delivered on a test basis 60,000 kilowatts
     of electricity net, which was more electricity than any
     other individual reactor in existence.

                         Southern Nevada Chapter
                                of the
                     Registered Professional Engineers;
                   Engineering Scholarship Loan Foundation

             1.  The fund is to be made available as a loan to
                 a student who has reached his Junior or Senior
                 year.

             2.  That the student be enrolled in some branch of
                 Engineering or in the Mackay School of Mines.
                 However, in event the faculty determines that
                 there is no worthy student who wants the loan,
                 in the Colleges noted above, then the faculty,
                 at their option may select a student from an-
                 other of the Science Schools such as Physics or
                 Chemistry.

                 the student.

             4.  That the student must start repayment of the
                 loan within one calendar year after leaving
                 school, except in event of required military
                 duty.  The student at his option might start
                 repayment of the loan within the specified
                 year or start repayment upon termination of
                 his military career.

             5.  That the interest rate will be determined by
                 the faculty Scholarship Committee.

             6.  The distribution and collection of the loans
                 will be handled in accordance with the estab-
                 lished policy of the University.

     Motion by Mr. Sawyer, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried
     unanimously that the gifts be accepted and that the Secre-
     tary write a note of thanks to the donors.

12.  Engineering Transfer Bond

     As requested at the last meeting, Mr. Rogers worked with
     Dean Blodgett in providing greater safety in connection
     with the Engineering Transfer Board.  Protection in the form
     of thin pieces of wood laid over the shoulders with holes
     drilled in the wood for viewing makes it impossible to con-
     tact the electrical connections.

     Motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Mr. Thompson, carried

14.  Ladino Dairy

     Dean Adams was present to make the presentation.  In meet-
     ing of the Citizens' Advisory Committee to the College of
     Agriculture, held on May 7, 1958, the following action was
     taken:

     Motion was made by Ray Knisley, as follows:  Having reviewed
     and agreed with the recommendations of the Advisory Commit-
     tee made on September 22, 1955, proposing sale of the Ladino
     Dairy Farm and having examined the facilities of that farm
     and reviewed the proposal of the present staff of the Col-
     lege of Agriculture to abandon its operation and establish
     a modern dairy and facilities at the Main Station Farm in
     its place, and being of the opinion that it would be a
     breach of trust to the Fleischmann Estate to use the funds
     derived from this sale for any other purpose, we recommend
     that the Ladino Dairy Farm be sold at the most advantageous
     price, the money derived from this sale to be used:

     1.  To establish modern dairy facilities as has been out-
         lined by the said staff at this meeting.

     2.  Any surplus remaining to be used for the College of
         Agriculture.

     The motion was seconded by Fred Settlemeyer and in the
     absence of objection, was declared adopted by Cyril Bastian
     as Chairman.

     President Armstrong called on Dr. Wood, who had worked on
     the following personnel matters as Acting President.

     a)  L. E. Dunn - Report from the Chairman of the Committee
         on Tenure and Academic Freedom stated that the Committee
         has not yet considered the case of Dr. Dunn, who appeal-
         ed for consideration regarding promotion to full Profes-
         sor.

     b)  James Kidwell - Recommendation from the Committee on
         Tenure and Academic Freedom was that appeal of Dr.
         Kidwell for promotion to full Professorship be denied.
         Report of the Committee action was forwarded to Dr.
         Kidwell, who has now asked in writing for an opportu-
         nity to discuss his appeal with the Board of Regents.
         Upon recommendation of the President, the Chair asked
         the Grievance Committee to meet with Dr. Kidwell.

     c)  James Hunter - The Committee on Tenure and Academic
         Freedom considered the appeal of Mr. Hunter concerning
         the change in his title and contract status.  The Com-
         mittee findings were that Mr. Hunter was formerly
         Superintendent of the South Virginia Farm with the
         title of Assistant Animal Husbandman, equivalent rank
         of Instructor; when the Farm was sold, a change in Mr.
         Hunter's duties resulted and his title was made that
         of Herdsman, a technician status.  The recommendation
         of the Committee was that:  (1)  Mr. Hunter be re-
         instated to a professional contract, and (2) any suc-
         cessor to Mr. Hunter, in the position he holds, should
         be appointed on a technician's contract.  Following
         general discussion, the President recommended that
         the matter be referred back to the Committee on Tenure
         and Academic Freedom for further study and clarification
         with respect to the following items:  (1)  Does the
         Committee believe Mr. Hunter possesses the necessary
         qualifications for professional status; (2)  Consider-
         ation of consequences of granting professional status
         with respect to his consequent immediate eligibility
         for tenure and promotion; (3)  If the Committee does
         not believe that he possesses the necessary qualifica-
         tions, then would the Committee consider the nature
         of the precedent which would thus be established by
         recommending action which is an exception to current
         staff personnel policies.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
     unanimously that the recommendation of the President be
     approved.

17.  Armstrong Contract

     Mr. Grant presented for consideration a contract with Dr.
     Charles J. Armstrong showing an annual salary rate of
     $17,500 based on 12-months service, without tenure, and
     including use of house at 1080 Mount Rose Street with
     utilities and use of Buildings and Grounds personnel in
     maintaining the grounds, an expense account of $300 per
     month against which an accounting is to be made for
     actual expenses incurred in connection with the duties
     of the office, use of a University car, and actual moving
     expenses to Reno up to but not exceeding $1000.

     Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
     unanimously that the contract be approved, and that Mr.
     Grant be authorized to sign on behalf of the Board of
     Regents.

18.  Ed Randall, Food & Drugs

     Mr. Randall was present, with Attorney John Bartlett.  Mr.
     Randall presented ad discussed an "Organizational Plan for
     Food & Drugs, Weights & Measures Departments" and also a
     chart on the Financial Structure anticipating probable
     growth of the State and demand for services.  He also pre-
     sented a budget request for the coming biennium in the
     amount of $376,463.

     Mr. Bastian discussed the administrative difficulties and
     problem which the Food & Drugs Division has experienced and
     expressed his belief that matters had gone so far that Mr.
     Randall could not now bring the Department back to harmoni-
     ous status.

     Motion was made by Mr. Bastian and seconded by Mr. Elwell,
     that because of the action of the Board of Regents on May
     12, 1958, Mr. Randall be dismissed at the end of his pro-
     bationary period, which is November 12, 1958.

     Before a vote was taken, Attorney Bartlett spoke on behalf
     of Mr. Randall, and requested that various phases of the
     case be heard in open hearing when both those who are loyal
     and those who are disloyal can be heard.  He asked, further,
     that Mr. Randall be given permission to dismiss 2 individu-
     als whom Mr. Randall has charged with disloyalty.  Mr.
     Randall explained his efforts to carry out the work requir-
     ed of his Department with what be believed to be inadequate
     staff, poor equipment and lack of support on the part of
     the University Administration.

     Mr. Hardy reviewed the hearing which the Grievance Committee
     conducted on Mr. Randall's case, and pointed out that Mr.
     Randall at that time indicated his inability to perform all
     the duties assigned to his Departments by laws enacted at
     the last session of the Legislature.  Mr. Dickerson, At-
     torney General, at that time concurred in the fact that in-
     creased duties had been placed on Mr. Randall at the last
     legislative session, without provision for increased help
     in the Department.

     Vote on Mr. Bastian's motion, above, was then taken with
     the following result:

         "Aye" - Anderson, Bastian, Broadbent, Elwell, Grant,
                 Thompson
         "No " - Lombardi
         Not Voting - Hardy

     Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
     unanimously that Mr. Randall be offered his former posi-
     tion as Chemist, effective November 12, 1958.

     Motion by Mr. Bastian, seconded by Mr. Thompson, carried
     unanimously that the budget and the organizational plan
     presented by Mr. Randall be submitted to the Legislature.

     By unanimous informal agreement, the President was in-
     structed by the Chair to study the situation of securing a
     Head for the Department of Food & Drugs, Weights & Measures,
     Petroleum Products Inspection.

19.  Las Vegas License Matter

     Chairman Grant presented a letter from the proprietor of
     Pierre's College Inn in which he asked the attitude of the
     Regents towards his application for license for serving
     alcoholic beverages at his establishment, located some 750
     feet from the Nevada Campus of the Southern Regional Divi-
     sion.  The matter was generally discussed, in regard to
     this particular request, as well as its effect upon the
     future growth of the area.

     Motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried
     unanimously that a letter be written to the Chairman of
     the Licensing Board of Clark County, with copies to members
     of the Licensing Board and the County Commissioners, re-
     questing that the license not be granted.

20.  General University Budget

     Mr. Hayden discussed cuts which had been made in the bien-
     nial budget, in line with request of the Board of Regents
     at the last meeting.  The budget, as here presented, showed
     a total for biennium of $11,295,388.50, with $8,611.424.50
     requested from the Legislature to finance the budget.

     Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Thompson, carried
     unanimously that, in presenting the budget to the Legisla-
     ture, the President is the official spokesman for the Uni-
     versity.

     Mr. Humphrey, representing the Nevada Taxpayers' Associa-
     tion, commented favorably on the manner of preparation and
     presentation of the University budget, especially from the
     standpoint of public information; and he thanked the Regents
     and the University Administration for cooperation in gather-
     ing budget information for the Nevada Taxpayer's Associa-
     tion.

     There followed some discussion concerning a policy for
     salary increases under the formula set up by the Personnel
     Policy and Procedure for Professional Staff.

     The Chairman appointed Regent Thompson to work with Dr.
     Armstrong and Dr. Wood in preparing a resolution outlining
     the views of the Board of Regents on salary increases.

     Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Thompson, carried
     unanimously that the University budget be approved as pre-
     sented in this meeting in its final form.

21.  Regents Meeting

     Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
     unanimously that the October meeting of the Board be held

     Upon proposal by Dr. Anderson, it was agreed that members
     of the Press be invited to meet with the Regents on the
     evening prior to the November meeting of the Board.

The meeting adjourned at 5:40 P.M.

The next meeting was set for October 11, 1958 in Las Vegas,
