5. Gift of S-Bar-S Ranch to the University of Nevada



Dean Bohmont presented detailed information concerning an

offer by Mrs. Helen Marye Thomas of a gift of the S-Bar-S

Ranch to the University of Nevada. This ranch consists of

387.88 acres of land located 28 miles northeast of Reno,

near Wadsworth. Besides the 60 acres of irrigated lands and

228 acres of river channel and adjacent range land, build-

ings and equipment available for immediate use include a

two-room guest house, a foreman's house, barn machine shed,

corrals, tool house, spring house and other sheds, a 1965

Ford tractor with attachments and haying equipment. In ad-

dition, there is one large three-bedroom residence, one two-

bedroom guest house and pool and two-car garage which Mrs.

Thomas has requested be reserved for her use during the

remainder of her lifetime. In offering this gift to the

University for use by the College of Agriculture as a re-

source conservation and wildlife research and teaching

center, Mrs. Thomas set forth the following conditions:



(1) A deed to the University of Nevada of the entire ranch,

reserving a life estate unto herself of her personal

residence, guest house, pool and garage, so that upon

her death the University will have the latter area.



(2) On conveying the deed to the University of Nevada Board

of Regents, it is agreed that the University will not

sell, convey, nor dispose of the ranch during Mrs.

Thomas' lifetime. If conditions arise after her death

whereby property becomes a burden to the University,

authority will be vested in the Board of Regents to

dispose of this property based upon such recommendation

by the College of Agriculture, with the proceeds of

such a sale dedicated in perpetuity on behalf of the

College of Agriculture.



(3) The University will establish a plaque within the

College of Agriculture setting forth the gift from

Mrs. Thomas in memory of her parents.



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

unanimously that the Board accept the offer of the gift from

Mrs. Helen Marye Thomas under the conditions as set forth

above.



6. NSU Student Activity Building Budget



Mr. Humphrey reviewed the budget for NSU Student Activity

building and requested, based on Chancellor Moyer's recom-

mendation, that $7,500 be transferred from contingency to

construction to provide for modification of partitions on

the second floor and changes on the first floor of the

Activity building to provide for additional office space

and security control.



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

without dissent that the request for transfer of $7,500 from

the contingency fund to the construction be approved.



7. Progress Report on U. S. 395



Mr. Pine presented a progress report on the negotiation

between the University and the State Highway Department

concerning U. S. 395. No action was requested at this time.



8. Proposed Botanical Garden



Vice President Mordy presented a request from the Horticul-

tural Society for permission to locate the Botanical Garden

in the area surrounding the Water Resources building and the

Fleischmann Atmospherium-Planetarium. Professor Mordy

presented a map which reflected a 12-acre area which the

Horticultural Society would like to use for the garden area

and indicated that they are now requesting formal approval

of the Board of Regents of the designation of this area for

that purpose so that planning can be commenced.



It was pointed out in the discussion that there is a possi-

bility that at some future date some area would be dedicated

to a building site and necessitate removal of part of the

gardens. It was considered wise that the Botanical Garden

group, if granted permission to plant as requested, be

notified of this possibility.



Motion by Mr. Smith, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried without

dissent that Board approve this request in principle with

the following provisions: (1) No structures be erected on

site without prior specific approval by the Board; (2) Any

area may be reclaimed on 90 days notice; (3) Attorney Gen-

eral to submit final document for approval by both groups.

13. Authorization of Funds for Schematics for Basic Medical

Sciences Building



President Armstrong reviewed for the Board their previous

action in authorizing the Administration to negotiate a

contract with Welton Beckett & Associates and Simpson and

Putnam for architectural services on the Animal Research

Facility and Medical School building contemplated to be

sited adjacent to Washoe Medical Center, and their earlier

approval in February, 1967 of the expenditure of $4,800

(made available by loan from Capital Improvement Fee Fund,

Reno) for the preliminary drawings for the Animal Science'

Research Facility portion of this project. Mr. Humphrey had

developed a contract and recommended it be executed by the

President after:



(1) Approval by the Board of Regents of proposed program

(123,000 sq. ft. building) upon which the architects

will develop schematics; and



(2) Approval by the Board of Regents of the transfer from

any appropriate source or sources of $35,000 which will

guarantee payment of the architects for development of

schematics should the project be abandoned or substan-

tially delayed at that point.



Under the terms of the contract, architects would collect

10% of their total fee upon completion of the schematics, or

between $30,000 and $34,400 plus any premium paid for labor

overtime during development of schematics and certain reim-

bursables. Mr. Humphrey estimated that the $4,000 already

made available would be sufficient to cover the premium work

and the reimbursables, and recommended that a maximum of

$35,000 additional be made available.



Dr. Anderson pointed out that approximately $10,000 in gifts

has been received by the University toward planning phase

of the Medical School and recommended the Board authorize a

loan of up to $25,000 from the Capital Improvement Fee Fund

to be used with the gift money to pay for cost of drawing

schematics for the basic Medical Sciences building.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried by roll

call vote that the Board authorize the use of up to $25,000

to be made available by a loan from the Capital Improvement

Fee Fund, Reno, for development of schematics; that the

Administration be authorized to define the scope of the

program at the discretion of the President, the Chancellor,

and Dean of the Medical School and the College of Agricul-

ture, and that the total expenditure not exceed $39,000.

Mr. Jacobsen's motion also included authorization for the

Administration to finalize the agreement with the archi-

tectural firms of Welton Beckett & Associates and Simpson

and Putnam.



Mr. Hug asked that a specific request be made to the Presi-

dent, the Chancellor and the two Deans to carefully review

the scope that is given to the architects to make sure that

it is within the capability of the University to fund.



Mr. Ronzone stated that in his opinion the architects were

charging too much for the preparation of schematics. How-

ever, Mr. Humphrey pointed out that this was a standard

charge for the size and cost of the project under consid-

eration. Dr. Miller also emphasized that this was a maximum

program under discussion and should funds not be adequate

the size of the project should be cut back.



Mr. Bell stated that in reference to the Hughes gift, there

has been no change in the status except that the documents

have been returned from Houston and are now in Las Vegas

and have been assigned priority status.



14. Approval of Check Registers



President Armstrong presented, with his recommendation for

approval, the check registers as submitted by Vice President

Humphrey.



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

by roll call vote that the check registers be approved as

submitted.



15. Architectural Competition for Chemistry Building, NSU



Mr. Pine reported back to the Board that the State Planning

Board is in agreement that Dr. Robert B. Smith is an

appropriate representative for the Board of Regents on the

Selection Committee. Mr. Pine pointed out that Dr. Smith

will serve with William E. Hancock, James D. Mc Daniel, and

Ralph Casazza, with the 5th member to be selected, probably

an architect employed by University of California System.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that Mr. Louis E. Demonte be recommended as the 5th

member of the Committee.



16. Approval of Candidates for Graduation

GENERAL AND TECHNICAL INSTITUTE



Armstrong, Judith E. A. A. in Nursing



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

without dissent that the above candidates be approved for

graduation and the appropriate degrees conferred.



Dr. Anderson noted that several news stories had appeared

recently with names of graduates for Nevada Southern prior

to approval by the Regents. He requested that henceforth

no release be made to the news media of names of graduates

until the list of such graduates had been formally approved

by the Board.



17. Report on Reorganization Study



President Armstrong reviewed for the Regents the action of

the Committee which had been appointed to collect and trans-

mit material to the Board on various methods of University

administration, and presented to the Board the following

report from the Committee:



REPORT OF AD HOC COMMITTEE ON UNIVERSITY REORGANIZATION



The Ad Hoc Committee on University Reorganization at its

second meeting on August 14, 1967 agreed the most useful

method of transmitting the requested information on various

methods of University organization to the Board of Regents

would be to follow the outline of classification of major

types of University coordination as set forth in The Campus

and The State, Malcolm Moos and Frances E. Rourke, 1959, in

Chapter IX, The Quest for Coordination. A summary of this

chapter has already been submitted to members of the Board

of Regents, but additional copies are attached to this

report for ready reference.



Using this outline the Committee presents examples of each

type of coordination, the chief characteristics and modifi-

cations of each type, and the conditions which would exist

if the type were applied to the State of Nevada.



I. Legislative or Executive Coordination



"Actually there is no such thing as a completely

uncoordinated system of higher education. In those

states where there is no control coordinating board

for higher education, their Legislature, and to some

extent, the Governor, serve as centers of coordina-

tion; they do this mainly through budgetary proce-

dures. In some places there is partial coordination

whereby the State Colleges are governed by a central

board (often the State Board of Education) while the

State University and Land Grant College have separate

and independent governing bodies."



This system has been in operation in such states as

Alabama, Maine, Maryland, Massachusettes, Michigan,

Minnesota, Nebraska and New Hamphsire, but in the eyes

of administrative reformers these arrangements do not

constitute a genuine system of coordination. Coordi-

nation today is thought of primarily in terms of an

all-inclusive Statewide system.





If this pattern were applied to the State of Nevada,

the following set of conditions would exist:



1. Each institution would have its own separate Board

of Regents.



2. Each institution would have its own President,

reporting to its separate Board.



3. No attempt at coordination or prior consultation

on programs and budgets would take place.



4. Separate presentations of program and budgets

would be made to the Governor's office and

defended before the Legislature.



II. Voluntary Cooperation



Some "states maintain some arrangement for archieving

a measure of cooperation among the schools". Some are

quite inactive, apparently an annual meeting of

Presidents or something similar. Other states have

loaned staffs (or funded separately) which devote time

to assembling and analyzing cost and enrollment data.

Frequently these coordinating councils are regarded as

a "facade designed to give the appearance of coordina-

tion without disturbing vested education interests".



Examples of voluntary cooperation are found in Ohio

and Indiana. Also, the pattern of organization in the

State of Utah comes close to being like the voluntary

cooperation as described here. In essence, this

involves the concept of an advisory coordinating

council among the Universities of the State.



If this pattern were adopted in the State of Nevada

the following conditions would obtain:



1. Two separate Boards of Regents would exist - one

for each institution.



2. Each institution would have its own President,

reporting to its separate Board.



3. There would be a coordinating council or board,

perhaps somewhat like the present Committee on

Higher Education Planning. This group would

concern itself with planning, data collection,

and probably would have a staff to work both with

it and with the separate Boards of Regents.



4. Each institution would make its separate presenta-

tion to the Governor's office and defend its

budget before the Legislature.



III. Consolidation



"One of the least employed but potentially drastic

means of coordination is the outright consolidation

of several institutions into one University." Best

known examples are the University of North Carolina

(N. C. State College at Raleigh, Women's College at

Greensboro, Chapel Hill Campus U. N. C.) and Texas

A & M System (A & M plus 3 smaller Colleges).



"It has been suggested that the University of Cali-

fornia is virtually a consolidated system, although

the units of the system are technically considered

as branches of the University and now as separate

institutions.



"The incorporation of several institutions under a

single name - as U. of N. C. - does not change the

fact that separate Campuses still exist and are

administered by resident executive officers."



Another example of this pattern of organization in the

material which the Committee has studied is that rep-

resented by the Southern Illinois University System.



It has been suggested that the present organization of

the University of Nevada is an example of the consoli-

dation concept. While in some respects, it is true,

the basic concept of consolidation involves the weld-

ing of several existing institutions into one Univer-

sity usually by legislative action. On the other

hand, the University of Nevada System has evolved by

internal growth rather than by consolidation, hence

the present organization of the University makes it

quite similar to the pattern found in another type,

namely the Central Governing Board. (See IV, follow-

ing.)



The chief characteristics of consolidated University

organization are:



1. A single board which serves in a governing-operat-

ing capacity.



2. A chief University executive in a line capacity

between the chief Campus officers and governing

board.



3. A tendency toward uniform policy through central-

ized administration.



4. Possibility of a loss of initiative and respon-

siveness in the individual institutions.



There are, of course, many modifications of this

concept, as for example, in the University of Calif-

ornia where as Campus units have multiplied there has

been a reversal of tendencies mentioned above, thus

resulting in increased decentralization, and develop-

ment more in the direction of the central governing

board type.



Application of the consolidated concept to the State

of Nevada has been described and a proposal presented

to the Committee by Professor Richard Sill, a copy of

which is attached.



Under the consolidated pattern of organization there

is a single presentation to the Governor's office and

to the Legislature, program development involves fac-

ulty equally on all Campuses, and a single President

is chief administrative office for all Campuses.



IV. The Central Governing Board



"Eleven states have unified all institutions of higher

education under the direction of a single Board of

Regents exercising direct authority over each school.

No intermediary governing boards stand between the

central board and the Campus administrators. High

praise for the central governing board comes from

states which have employed the system for a number of

years. But in states where central boards have been

proposed as a reform for existing decentralized

systems, there has been considerable resistance to

this change.



"By presenting an integrated budgetary request to the

Legislature, the central board substantially dimin-

ishes harmful fighting among the competing institu-

tions. It is claimed that the single board permits

a more rational allocation of resources among the

institutions without sacrificing the distinctive

features of each institution.



"Opponents of the central governing board contend that

a single board for several institutions is incapable

of given attention to each institution.



"It does appear that in centralized systems without a

strong chief executive, where the central office

serves more as a clearing house than an executive

agency, the institutional Presidents are the actual

leaders in the formation of policy; indeed, this may

be the merit of the system.



"Yet, on balance there is little evidence that the

central governing systems have harmed the individual-

ity of educational institutions, or that they have

played favorites with certain Colleges. Nor do their

administrative procedures appear to be much more cum-

bersome than those of individual governing boards.

Some of the central boards, in fact, are careful to

decentralize many administrative functions to the

separate institutions in order to give them latitude."



Good examples of this pattern in the materials which

the Committee has studied are the Oregon State and the

University of California System as it now operates.

In these two Systems, of course, there is a chief

University administrative officer, President or

Chancellor, who serves in a line relationship between

the governing board and the chief Campus officers.

In this respect, therefore, the present organization

of the University of Nevada fits that aspect of the

pattern of central governing board organization.



Other examples of this kind of organization include

State University Systems in Arizona, Florida, Georgia,

Iowa, Kansas and some others.



The chief characteristics of the central governing

board organization are as follows:



1. A single board which serves in a governing-

coordinating role.



2. In some cases, no chief University administrative

layer between the board and the chief Campus

officers; chief Campus officers report directly

to the board.



3. In such instances the board employs a staff

officer to act in an advisory-liaison-information

capacity and to assist in the general coordination

of the various entities of the University System.

This board officer serves in a staff relationship

to the chief Campus officers and may perform

solely fiscal functions (as in the Arizona System)

or may have academic orientation as well.



4. Can encourage the tendency toward coordinated

diversity within a system format by placing empha-

sis on the Campus as the basic unit in the system.



Certain modified characteristics of this system would

involve the introduction of individual Campus advisory

boards whose efforts (along with those of the chief

Campus officers) are coordinated under a single state-

wide governing-coordinating board. The New York State

system seems to be an example of this modified form,

although here too there is a chief administrative

officer (Chancellor) of the entire system.



Application to Nevada of the central governing board

system as exemplified by Arizona (rather than the

Oregon pattern, which is very similar to the present

University of Nevada System) would necessitate:



1. The elimination of the office of President of the

University as such.



2. The appointment of a staff officer or Executive

Director of the board who would serve in a staff

capacity.



3. Establishment of a direct line relationship

between the chief Campus officers and the Board

of Regents.



The crux of this pattern of organization would lie

in the role and function of Executive Director or

staff officer. In any case, he would not have

direct authority over the chief Campus officers

and his orientation might be solely fiscal (as in

Arizona), or his role might involve academic as

well as fiscal qualifications.



V. The Master Board



"The Master Board differs from the central govern-

ing board in one essential respect: it does not

replace the regular institutional governing boards,

but is established and given separate identity as a

coordinating body to deal with areas of policy which

require a statewide approach, such as finance. The

governing boards themselves retain control over in-

ternal policies of institutions of higher education."



Examples of the Master Board concept are found in

Illinois, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Texas, Virginia and

Wisconsin.



The chief characteristics of the Master Board organi-

zation are:



1. Separate governing board for individual Campus,

with a chief Campus officer responsible to the

Campus governing board.



2. A statewide Master Board for the coordination

of the separate Campus boards into a State System

with certain limitations on the overall authority

of the Master Board.



3. Tends to emphasize local Campus autonomy with the

Master Board serving to integrate the separate

Campuses into a coordinated statewide system.



Application of this pattern to the State of Nevada

would involve the following:



1. Creation of separate Campus boards for Reno and

Las Vegas Campuses.



2. Restructuring of the present Statewide Board

into a Master Board with a coordinating role,

primarily in Finance.



3. Elimination of office of President of the Uni-

versity, and appointment of a staff officer or

Executive Director for the Master Board.



Conclusion



It is apparent that there is no ideal model of coordinated

University organization, and that within the 5 major types

discussed above there is considerable variation, with many

modifications and differences of detail, and in some cases

overlapping between the categories. Yet it does seem that

the most easily and readily applicable of the system to the

State of Nevada would be the Central Governing Board, es-

pecially in view of the fact that the University of Nevada

is presently operating under one variation of this concept,

which primarily involves the function of the Office of the

President.



The other variation of this system to which the University

might move would thus involve primarily the elimination of

the office of President as such, the placing of the chief

body, and the appointment of an Executive Director or staff

officer of the Board of Regents, with fiscal or academic

qualifications or both, who would serve in an advisory

capacity to the Board and a staff relationship to the chief

Campus officers.

Charles J. Armstrong,

Chairman



In the discussion following the presentation of the Commit-

tee report, Mr. Hug suggested additional service might be

rendered by the Committee in analyzing advantages and dis-

advantages of central governing board concept of University

administration. However, President Armstrong suggested that

because of the composition of the Committee, this service

might be better provided by the consultants with whom the

Board will meet in October. President Armstrong then re-

viewed for the Board the particular consultants with whom

he had corresponded and asked for suggestions from the

Board as to the maximum and minimum number desirable.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mrs. Magee, carried with-

out dissent that the maximum number of consultants be held

to five with a minimum of three.



President Armstrong informed the Board of a recent request

from the Executive Board of Reno Campus Senate concerning

the distribution to the faculty of all materials collected

by the Ad Hoc Committee, and recommended that such materials

be made available for distribution by the respective Senate

Chairmen.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Smith, carried without

dissent that the request of the Executive Board of the Reno

Campus Faculty Senate be approved and all material be made

available for distribution to both Campus facilities.



President Armstrong also transmitted to the Board the fol-

lowing action by the Nevada Southern University Faculty:



At a general faculty meeting at 10 A.M., Tuesday, September

6, 1967, the faculty of Nevada Southern University took

action on three motions which are herewith forwarded to you

for the appropriate processing:



1. Dr. Richard Byrns moved that the Nevada Southern Univer-

sity faculty go on record as expressing confidence in

leadership of Chancellor Donald C. Moyer and so inform

the Board of Regents of the University. Mr. Christian

Dolin seconded the motion and it passed with a vote of

125 in favor, no one opposed, and five abstentions by

new members of the faculty.



2. Mrs. Felicia Campbell moved that the Nevada Southern

University faculty recommend to the Board of Regents

that the office of the President be removed from the

organization of the System, thereby enabling the Chan-

cellor of each Campus to be the chief administrative

officer reporting directly to the Board of Regents.

Dr. Eugene Dawson seconded the motion and it passed by

a vote of 125 in favor, no one opposed, and five ab-

stentions by new faculty members.



3. Dr. John Starr moved that the Nevada Southern University

faculty recommend to the Board of Regents that the re-

sponsibility and authority for finances for each Campus

of the University be assumed by the respective Chancel-

lors. James Deacon seconded the motion and it passed by

a vote of 117 in favor, 4 nays and 9 abstentions by new

members of the faculty.



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

without dissent that the above policy be approved.



18. Damage Deposit Refund Policy Statement



In response to a request to develop a policy covering the

refund of the residence hall damage deposit approved for NSU

at the meeting of August 11, 1967, Chancellor Moyer submit-

ted the following:



It is recommended that the following points be considered

for incorporation into the operational policy of the housing

deposit.



1. A twenty-five dollar deposit would be received with the

housing application. This deposit would be held until

the student's final termination of on-Campus living.



The deposit would serve a two-fold purpose. At the out-

set, the deposit would show a student's "good faith"

when making a room reservation. Secondly, the held

deposit would be used to defray repair costs which arise

from damages above normal wear and tear.



2. Damage charges would be assessed from two major

categories.



a. General Public Areas - Damage occurring in public

areas such as elevators, main lounge, etc., would be

charged against all residents; i. e., damage repair

cost divided by number of residents in the residence

hall.



b. Specific Areas - Damage occurring in specific areas

such as floor corridors, floor lounges, etc., would

be charged to occupants of that floor or area on it;

i. e., damage repair cost divided by number of

residents of particular floor or area where damage

occurred.



3. The housing office would maintain a general journal of

all expenses and charge assessments. All accounts would

be adjusted at the end of each semester. An exact

accounting of any individual's deposit balance would be

available at any time.



4. The unused balance of individual deposits will be re-

funded annually. A new deposit of $25 will be required

of all residence hall occupants.



Note: Any damage that can be traced directly to an individ-

ual or individuals will be charged on a regular basis

separate from the $25 deposit fee.



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

out dissent that the above policy be approved.



19. Recommendations from NSU Land Development Foundation



Chancellor Moyer presented excerpts from the minutes of the

Board of Trustees of the NSU Land Foundation meeting of

September 8, in which the Trustees voted to:



(1) Recommend to the Board of Regents that Mr. Robert Maheu

be named as a member of the Nevada Southern University

Land Foundation Board of Trustees to fill one of two

vacant seats created by expansion of the Board to 15

members and that Mr. Del Webb be named to the second

vacancy. In the event that Mr. Webb cannot accept the

appointment, the Trustees recommended to the Board the

name of Mr. Howard James.



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, car-

ried without dissent that the recommendations of the

Trustees be approved and that the above named gentle-

men be invited to serve as members of the Board of

Trustees of the Nevada Southern University Land Founda-

tion.



(2) Recommend to the Board of Regents that $734,000 appro-

priation by the 1967 Legislature be used to purchase

Land Parcels #23 at a cost of $556,372, #5 at a cost

of $110,000, and #6 at a cost of $85,818; for a total

cost of $752,190; and that the $18,190 difference

between the appropriation and the total cost of the

three parcels be realized through a discount for paying

off parcel #23, or that #23 be divided in such a way

that title to the number of acres equal to the exact

amount of funds appropriated might be transferred to

Nevada Southern University.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, car-

ried without dissent that the recommendations of the

Board of Trustees be approved and the State Planning

Board be advised of the University's recommendations

on land purchases.



20. Consulting Agreement with Davis-Mac Connel-Ralston Corp.



The Board reviewed a proposed agreement between Nevada

Southern and the Davis-Mac Connel-Ralston Corporation for

consulting and planning work to be accomplished at NSU

during the next four months.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried with-

out dissent that the proposed agreement be approved as sub-

mitted.



21. Proposed Seminar on Educational Television



To accommodate a request by the Chairman of the Board for

Regents to attend and participate in a proposed seminar on

Educational Television, it was moved by Mrs. Magee, seconded

by Mr. Jacobsen, that the seminar be scheduled for either

Friday, November 10 or Saturday, November 11, depending on

the convenience of the other participants and the regular

Board meeting be held on whichever the day not chosen for

the seminar.



22. Transfer of Funds



Mr. Humphrey recommended the $6,850.22 be transferred from

the David Russell Loan Fund to provide the required 1/9

matching portion for the Nursing Program Loan, Reno Campus

($5,800) and for the National Defense Student Loan Program,

Reno Campus ($56,652). Mr. Humphrey also recommended that

$4,777.77 be transferred from the David Russell Loan Fund to

provide the required 1/9 matching portion for the National

Defense Student Loan Program at NSU ($43,000) and $1,350

be transferred from the Garvey Rhodes Loan Fund to provide

the 1/9 matching portion for the Nursing Program Loans at

NSU ($12,150).



Motion by Mr. Ronzone, seconded by Mr. Bell, carried without

dissent that the above transfers of funds be approved.



23. Report of Development Committee Meeting of September 8, 1967



Mr. Ronzone reported briefly that the Development Committee

had met September 8 to develop some preliminary guidelines

for the Development Program. Mr. Ronzone introduced Mr.

Finehout who indicated that a full written report would be

available to the Committee and to the Board at its meeting

in October which would set forth the progress of the

Development Program.



24. Resignation of Mr. Arthur M. Smith, Jr.



Dr. Anderson informed the Board of Mr. Smith's resignation

from the Board of Regents on Monday, September 11, 1967,

because of his impending move to the Reno area. Dr. Ander-

son thanked Mr. Smith for his service to the Board and

wished him well in his new position as President of First

National Bank. Mr. Smith spoke of his service on the

Board and indicated that although his tenure had been

short, he had enjoyed it very much and offered his services

to the University in any capacity in the future.



The meeting adjourned at 3:20 P.M.
