UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA

BOARD OF REGENTS

September 18, 1964



The Board of Regents met in the President's Office, Clark Admin-

istration building, Reno Campus, on Friday, September 18, 1964.

Present: Regents Anderson, Davis, Germain, Grant, Hug, Jacobsen,

Lombardi, Magee; Vice President Humphrey, Engineer Rogers, Pres-

ident Armstrong. Mr. Walsh, Deputy Attorney General, was present

as Legal Adviser and Mr. Hancock of the State Planning Board was

present for a portion of the meeting. Members of the Press were

Mr. Laxalt, Mrs. Glendon, Miss Miller and Mr. Wilson.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Grant at 1:45 P.M.



1. Minutes of Previous Meeting



In the absence of any corrections to the minutes of the pre-

vious meeting, the Chairman declared the minutes accepted as

distributed.



2. Approval of Check Registers



President Armstrong recommended that the Check Registers as

submitted by Mr. Humphrey be approved.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the Check Registers be

approved.



3. Separate Bank Account for Home Management Residence



President Armstrong submitted, with his recommendation for

approval, the following request from Mr. Humphrey:



Miss Alice Gaston, Assistant Professor of Home Economics

and Advisor to the Home Management unit, has requested

permission to open a special bank account for the Home

Management Residence. Dean Dale Bohmont concurs with

her request.



I have reviewed the present imprest petty cash system

used and agree with Miss Gaston that it is a complicat-

ed, time consuming procedure with more risk of loss

than a checking account.



I recommend that you request permission of the Board of

Regents to establish a separate checking account in the

name of the Home Management Residence at Nevada Bank of

Commerce, North Reno Branch. This account will require

only the signature of the Advisor to the Home Management

Residence (presently Miss Gaston); however, for internal

control purposes the then current Student Manager will

co-sign each check.



This will be the only University of Nevada bank account

which does not require the signature of either the

Treasurer or the Chief Accountant. I believe, however,

that it is so exceptional as to justify this unique

procedure. The regular fidelity bond of $10,000 cover-

ing Miss Gaston is more than adequate as this account

will run less than $1000 per year.



In the discussion following this recommendation, in reply

to Mr. Germain's question as to whether this would place

the Board in a position of having to grant the same privi-

leges to others if granted to one, Mr. Humphrey stated

that the exceptional conditions under which the Home Man-

agement Residence is operated justified the procedure and

would not be found in any other area of the University.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with

Regent Germain voting "no" and all others voting "aye",

to approve the above recommendation.



4. Furnishings for Nye Hall



President Armstrong presented a recommendation from Vice

President Humphrey that a special appropriation be requested

from the Legislature for assistance in the furnishings of

Nye Hall, and recommended approval by the Board. The spe-

cial appropriation needed for this purpose is $151,735 to

assist in purchasing the following:



Bed-loungers $ 47,600

Chests 44,800

Desks 39,200

Wardrobes 50,400

Study Chairs 8,400

Lights over chests 1,400

Mattress Covers 840

Pillows 1,020

Wastebaskets 900

Sand Urns 160

Room Draperies 11,200

Floor Lounge furnishings 13,650

Main Lounge furnishings 4,000

Staff Resident's furnishings 1,585

Office furniture 290

Study lamps 5,040

Bedspreads 6,000

Furniture & equipment for

Recreation Room 5,250

Total $241,735



The balance of $90,000 necessary to complete the required

purchases is available from auxiliary enterprise funds.

Mr. Humphrey pointed out that by the complete furnishing

of Nye Hall, it could be used during the Summer and for

temporary guest housing for conferences, during academic

holidays. It was pointed out that furnishing bedspreads

is especially desirable because of the use of bed-loungers

which require a more expensive fitted spread.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Germain, carried unani-

mously that a special appropriation for the furnishing of

Nye Hall be requested of the Legislature.



5. Building Committee Meeting of August 24, 1964



Dr. Anderson read and discussed the minutes of the meeting

as follows:



The Building Committee met at 4:50 P.M.



Present Regents: Dr. Anderson, Mr. Germain, Dr. White, Mr.

Hug, Mrs. Magee, Dr. Lombardi, Mr. Davis, Mr. Jacobsen;

President Armstrong, Mr. Rogers, Mr. Humphrey, Dr. Worley,

Dr. Guss, Mr. Louis A. De Monte and Mr. William Hancock.



1. Review Physical Science and Social Science Projects

Sketches



Dr. Anderson explained that upon the instructions of the

Board of Regents, Mr. De Monte was retained as a con-

sultant to review the exterior treatment of the Social

Science and Physical Science buildings.



The reasons for three separate structures for Physical

Science was questioned. Dr. Guss gave the following

reasons: (1) Fumes from Chemistry would not be harmful

to Physics instruments. (2) Physics shops would not

be compatible with Chemistry vibration-free areas.

(3) Planning Board requires design to phasing con-

struction. (4) Classroom separated from other areas

so that student traffic to and from classroom will not

interfere with other activities. Will not create

heavy traffic loads in the areas. In response to Dr.

Anderson's question, it is agreed by Dr. Guss and Dr.

Worley that Chemistry had priority if phasing is nec-

essary. Dr. Worley noted that as a long-range plan the

separation of buildings is sound. Dr. Worley concurred

with the reasoning of Dr. Guss on the three separate

structures. Dr. Worley stated that a circular shape

is not necessary but not objectionable. Mr. Rogers ex-

plained the circular building and how it functions.

Mr. William Hancock agreed that the design of the three

separate structures was the best approach even though

slightly more expensive. He noted that the Planning

Board had not reviewed the plans. Dr. Guss and Dr.

Worley left the meeting at this point.



Mr. Rogers introduced Mr. De Monte who is campus archi-

tect for the Berkeley Campus of the University of Cal-

ifornia. Mr. De Monte reviewed the buildings as "a

total statement". He noted that there are savings in

construction cost when additions are made to the sep-

arate buildings. He stated that neither architect had

adequately studied the other architect's building in

order to make the buildings more compatible. He sug-

gested moving the Social Science building 50 feet to

the west, but stated that method of expansion of the

Library must first be decided. He noted that the

design architects had requested two weeks to rework

design.



2. A. Review the Action of the Clark County Planning

Commission on the Regents' Request of the Lane

Use Change of the University Property Located

along Flamingo Road



Mr. Rogers explained his meeting with Clark County

Planning Commission. The Clark County Planning

Commission has recommended to the Clark County Com-

missioners that the request of the Board of Regents

for a resolution of intent to rezone the land abut-

ting Flamingo Road from E-1 to C-1 be denied. The

Planning Commission stated that the purpose of their

Commission was to prevent speculation in land in the

area, and that they realize that the Regents desired

to rezone this land so that they could either sell

or swap to pick up land in the interior of Section

22 which would be of more benefit to the University,

but still they could not depart from the policy of

having plans submitted as to the indended use for

land on which a rezoning request was made.



The Chairman of the Planning Commission recommended

that we attempt to work either a trade or sale with

a buyer who would submit plans for an improvement

on the present University land, and the Planning

Commission would support the University at that

time in the rezoning from E-1 to C-1. Planning

Commissioners discussed the land lying east of the

University property for which Mr. Wilburn applied

and received a land zone change from E-1 to C-1

some time ago, and instructed the Commission staff

to advertise a public hearing to reclassify Mr.

Wilburn's area from C-1 back to E-1 since the devel-

opment which he proposed has not been undertaken.



Committee Action: Dr. Lombardi moved that "we let

the thing go to the Board; that is, do nothing."

Mr. Germain seconded; passed unanimously.



B. Review the Request Before the Clark County Planning

Commission that Flamino Road be Renamed "Dunes Road"



A public hearing will be held on August 25th, 1964

at 7:30 P.M., by the Clark County Planning Commis-

sion, to consider changing the name of Flamingo

Road to "Dunes Road".



Committee Action: Dr. Lombardi moved that no action

be taken; Mr. Germain seconded; passed unanimously.



3. Review the Pre-Planned Addition to the Library, Las

Vegas Campus by Architect James Mc Daniel



The Planning Board, with funds available to it for pre-

planning, retained James Mc Daniel, the architect on

the original Library building at Las Vegas to preplan

the requested two additional floors to that Library.

Information used by Mr. Mc Daniel to preplan this ad-

dition was supplied by the University Engineer's Office

and the Building Committee appointed for the project.

The Building Committee has reviewed the plans and has

recommended to the President that the plans be approved

by the University.



Committee Action: Mr. Germain moved, seconded by Dr.

Lombardi, that the preplanned addition be approved

subject to further study of the exterior treatment;

passed unanimously.



4. Review the Request of the State Planning Board for an

Overall Priority Listing, in Descending Order, of the

Capital Improvement Projects Requested by the Board of

Regents for 65-67 Biennium



The State Planning Board has been requested by the

Governor's Office to submit a priority schedule of con-

struction for all projects, and the Planning Board has

requested that the University establish, in descending

order of preference, a priority listing of all request-

ed projects on both Campuses.



President Armstrong recommended the following listing:

Lombardi seconded; passed unanimously. It was under-

stood that Permissive Legislation would be sought

separately from the Legislature.



Professor Mordy and Mr. Hellman entered the meeting.



5. Review Preliminary Plans of DRI Research Building

Designed by Architect Ray Hellman



These plans have been developed by Mr. Hellman, members

of the DRI staff, Professor Mordy and the University

Agriculture



Dean Bohmont explained the purpose of the building and

its location on Valley Road Farm next to the Agricul-

tural Mechanics Shop. He noted that $100,000 was

presently in authorized and funded building program

from non-appropriated monies. Dean Bohmont noted pos-

sibility of Federal aid, but that amount of $23,610

from pesticide portion of Federl act which might be

used was small when compared to total needed. Dr.

am informed that certain students presently assigned to

English A will, between registration day and September 24,

be transferred to English 101. Under present policy a

student who withdraws during that time would be provided

a 75% refund. It seems equitable, however, in this case

to refund the entire English A fee and I so rcommend.

mously that Mr. Humphrey's recommendation be adopted.

14. Report of General University Extension Committee Meeting,

September 18, 1964



Mr. Jacobsen reported the discussion at the meeting of the

Committee on General University Extension and pointed out

that certain problem areas are under consideration; the

most acute one being the classes offered by Utah to out-

lying communities in Nevada and the inability of General

University Extension to offer this service because of lack

of funds.



The general area of discussion resulted in the Committee's

unanimous approval of the following proposals:



(1) A special appropriation should be requested for Uni-

versity Extension to enable them to better make this

one arm of the University felt more strongly by the

community.



(2) University Administration should approach other Uni-

versities to try to establish more cooperation in the

method of offering programs across State lines.



(3) Future teaching appointments to outlying communities

should be joint appointments to provide more salary

incentive to faculty who are assigned to these out-

lying communities.



(4) Improve public relations between the University of

Nevada and outlying ares and school districts.



Both Cooperative Extension Service and General University

Extension have agreed to work toward these goals. Mrs.

Magee suggested recommendations of Committee should be

sent to Dean Kelly and that General University Extension

be asked to submit figures on proposed supplementary re-

quest for appropriation.



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

mously that recommendations of the Committee be accepted.



15. Proposed Natural History Reservation



President Armstrong reported that, following the request by

the Board to obtain Mr. Bowman's expression of his willing-

ness to have the University obtain and use the land in

question, he had been in contact with personnel at Nevada

Southern and had received the following letter in reply:



I met with Mr. Melvin Bowman last Saturday, 12 Septem-

ber, 1964, on the proposal Natural History Reservation.

Mr. Bowman felt that we should discuss the matter more

fully on Wednesday, 16 September, 1964, as he is only

one of several family members involved in water and

grazing rights in the area. On the 16th all of the

interested Bowman family members and their legal

representatives will meet in my Office.



At the time of our discussion, Mr. Bowman indicated

to me that he felt there would be no difficulties

over water rights. He did feel that any danger to

the Bowman grazing rights would result in the Bowman

interests doing everything in their power, legally and

politically, to protect their grazing rights. For

this reason we may need to revise slightly the boundar-

ies in our original proposal if it develops in our

meeting with the Bowmans that there is a conflict be-

tween their grazing areas and the proposed reserva-

tion. Mr. Bowman also indicated that if there is no

unresolvable conflict over grazing rights, they would

prefer that the University of Nevada go ahead with,

or even enlarge upon, the present plans.



The Bowmans will not, however, give me a letter approv-

ing of the reservation before we have accurately

checked the boundaries with their survey records on

Wednesday.



Dr. Armstrong asked for authorization from the Board to

proceed with the Natural History Reservation as planned,

contingent upon satisfactory agreement with the Bowman

family.



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

unanimously that such authorization be granted.



16. United Student Aid Fund Loan Program



President Armstrong read the following request from Mr.

Humphrey and recommended approval:



The University presently has on deposit $3000 with

United Student Aid Fund, Inc. of Belmont, California.

This $3000 deposit makes available $75,000 of loans

to students attending the University. The loans are

made by participating banks.



Mr. W. E. Rasmussen, Director of Financial Aids, has

informed me that the June 30, 1964 report from United

Student Aid Fund indicates an unused loan endorsement

capacity of $20,722.78 out of the original $75,000.

He also notes that since July 1 he has obligated an

additional $10,000.



Mr. Rasmussen recommends that the University contribute

an additional $2000 to the fund. This will increase

our endorsement capacity by $25,000 as the current

matching ratio is 12 1/2 to 1.



I second Mr. Rasmussen's recommendation and suggest

that the money be authorized from the Garvey Rhodes

Loan Fund (1-61-5006) which has an available balance

of $24,461.85 September 10, 1964.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the foregoing recom-

mendation be adopted.



17. Transfers, Contingency Reports



President Armstrong reported the following transfers of

less than $2000 from Contingency Reserve:



#27 $1422 to Finance Department, College of Business

Administration to provide for hiring of Richard T.

Adams to new position.



President Armstrong recommended approval of the following

transfers from Contingency Reserve of more than $2000

each:



#28 $3150 to Finance Department, College of Business

Administration to provide for hiring of 3 part-time

Lecturers.



#33 $3180 to Nevada Bureau of Mines to provide for

printing of additonal manuscripts now ready for

publication.



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the fund transfers be

approved.



18. Closing Fund One Accounts, 1963-64



President Armstrong recommended approval of the following

request from Mr. Humphrey concerning transfer of certain

funds:



The unexpended budget balances at the end of 1963-64 totaled

$115,820.77. This amount was closed to Surplus. The open-

ing cash balance (from Surplus) for 1964-65 had been bud-

geted at $100,000.



In closing all accounts we followed the same procedure as

previously agreed upon. All debit balances were covered,

if possible, from credit balances within the Department or

College. This salary accounts were not, however, consid-

ered available for this purpose. If there were insuffic-

ient credit balances within the budget unit a transfer

from the Contingency Reserve was made. Only 6 such trans-

fers had to be made, exclusive of the very minor ones of

a few cents or dollars due to a miscalculation, especially

of a salary account.



I now request that the Board of Regents confirm these

transfers for the record.



Business Manager $ 338.17

Office of Student Affairs 216.72

College of Business Administration 305.40

Graduate School 61.10

Buildings and Grounds, Reno 2,445.15

College of Education 767.90



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

unanimously by roll call vote that the fund transfers

be approved.



19. President Armstrong reminded the Regents of the invitation

extended earlier from the Association of Governing Boards

to attend the American Council on Education luncheon and

meetings in San Francisco on October 30.



Mrs. Magee also reminded the members of the Board of the

Annual Meeting of the AGB, scheduled for October 15-16 in

Chapel Hill, North Carolina.



20. Because of Miss Alice Terry's impending retirement, Presi-

dent Armstrong recommended the appointment of Mrs. Bonnie

Smotony to serve as Secretary of the Board of Regents

until January 1, 1965.



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

unanimously that such appointment be made.



21. Next Meeting



The next regular meeting of the Board was set for October

23, 1964 at 9:00 A.M. on the Reno Campus.



22. Ray Germain read a letter copy written by Dean Carlson to

the Chairman of the Nevada Southern Faculty Advisory Com-

mittee on the Selection of a Chancellor, with copies to the

President and the Chairman of the Board, asking that his

name be withdrawn from consideration for the position. Mr.

Germain expressed some dissatisfaction concerning the proc-

ess of selection and the length of time it is taking to

fill the position. General discussion followed, and it

was agreed by assent to discuss the matter further in

Executive Session.



23. The meeting adjourned at 4:05 P.M.
