3. Report of Plant and Property Committee Meeting of

August 16, 1965



Mr. Davis presented the minutes of the meeting as follows:



The Plant and Property Committee met in the Travis Lounge of

the Student Union building on August 16, 1965. Present were

Regents Anderson, Davis, Hug, Jacobsen, and Magee; Chancel-

lors Miller and Moyer, Vice President Humphrey, Mr. Pine,

Mr. Hancock of the State Planning Board, and Mr. Parsons,

architect for the Orvis School Nursing building.



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Jacobsen at

7:20 P.M.



1. NSU Dormitory - Dining Hall



Mr. Pine reported that bids on this project were opened

on August 4. The low base bid of $937,200 was $213,000

over the construction budget. The low bid after sub-

traction of all deductive alternates was $763,000, or

still $40,200 over the construction budget. Futhermore,

HHFA would not concur to the award of a contract with

all the deductive alternates subtracted. It is neces-

sary to either redesign the plans or to abandon plans

entirely and develop new ones.



Mr. Edward B. Hendricks, A. I. A., at the request of the

University of Nevada officials, has indicated that he

would be willing to accept a contract to redesign the

plans for the project and supervise inspection during

construction for a fee of 2.1% construction contract

cost (the amount remaining in the budget since 3.9% has

been paid to Knighton). Mr. Hendricks has said that

this would be acceptable provided that he could be

guaranteed the architectural contract on the second

Dormitory at 6%. It is estimated that 30 days will be

required to complete the redesign. Allowing time for

HHFA review and advertising, bids could be opened about

November 1, 1965. The construction period is seven

months; therefore, if this course of action is success-

ful, the facility could be occupied in time for the Fall

semester, 1966. It would be necessary for the State

Planning Board to concur in this arrangement since the

second Dormitory will be a State Planning Board project.



An alternate to the above action would be further study

by the staff to determine the feasiblity of adapting

University of California Dormitory plans now being used

on several University of California Campuses. Mr. Pine

and Mr. Humphrey reported visual inspection of one type

of construction (wooden) being build at Davis, but did

not recommend its use at NSU. They report that they are

now waiting to receive a set of plans for concrete

buildings which the University of California has indi-

cated that they are forwarding.



Mr. Humphrey further suggested that there is a possibil-

ity that plans for Nye Hall could be adapted to fit the

site of NSU.



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the bids for this project be

rejected and that this item be tabled until plans from

the University of California have been obtained and

studied by the staff and the feasibility of modifying

Nye Hall plans could also be studied. It was requested

that staff recommendations concerning this item be sub-

mitted to the Committee on August 23.



2. NSU Property Acquisition



A. Mr. Pine, Director of Physical Plant, reported on

the offer to trade certain parcels of land in Las

Vegas as approved by the Board of Regents, July 24,

stating that Mr. Gerald Leavitt has not responded

to the offer to trade as of August 16, 1965. Mr.

Pine recommended that no counter offer be made to

Mr. Leavitt at the present time.



B. Mr. Pine reported that a piece of property owned by

Mr. Muench south of Harmon and west of the uncom-

pleted road to the at west edge of the Campus had

been offered for sale to the University. He rec-

ommended that no offer be made at this time for

this piece of property.



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

without dissenting vote that the above recommend-

ations be approved by the Committee and in turn

recommended to the Board for approval.



3. Orvis School of Nursing Building



Final plans and specifications have been reviewed by

Mr. Pine and his staff. Modifications were assured by

the Planning Board and the modified plans were submitted

to the Committee for consideration. Since the Commit-

tee, by earlier action of the Board, had been authorized

to approve final plans, the Committee was requested to

review and approve final plans as modified to enable

the project to be advertised for bids to be opened

September 10.



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the final plans be approved

as submitted and that the Chairman of the Board of

Regents be authorized to sign the necessary papers.



Action by the Board:



Motion by Dr. Lomardi, seconded by Mr. Magee, carried unani-

mously that the action of the Committee be confirmed by the

Board.



4. Chairman Anderson was requested by the Committee to

discuss further with Mrs. Orvis her plans to honor an

earlier commitment of Dr. Orvis providing financial

assistance in the construction of the Orvis School of

Nursing building.



5. Purchase of Land Adjacent to Nye Hall Site



Mr. Humphrey pointed out to the Committee that the

University has authority to purchase real property

without specific Legislative authorization by using

non-appropriated monies and by purchasing subject to

to a mortgage. The University cannot, however, borrow

money for this purchase. He presented the following

proposals which have again been made for the University

to purchase property adjoining the Nye Hall site.



A. Reno Ferretto is again offering for sale a single

family residence at 1201 N. Virginia Street and two

apartments located in a building facing Artemisia

Way and directly behind the residence. Mr. Ferretto

has indicated that he is subject to negotiation on

price and that his terms would be 25% down and the

the balance over a three to ten year period.



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

without dissenting vote that Mr. Ferretto be noti-

fied that the Committee is not in a position to

negotiate with him at this time but that the situ-

ation may change before too long.



B. Mr. Bruce D. Roberts, representing Clayton Block,

has offered for sale certain property on Sierra

Street which adjoins the Nye Hall site and a mort-

gage arrangement is possible. This property has

not been appraised.



It was recommended that the two parcels farthest

south on Sierra Street belonging to Mr. Block be

appraised and that information concerning the ap-

praisal and availability of funds be presented to

the Plant and Property Committee with a specific

recommendation on September 17.



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

without dissenting vote that Mr. Humphrey be auth-

orized to obtain an appraisal on the Block property

and bring the information to the next meeting of

this Committee so that negotiations can be made

with Mr. Block.



ACTION BY THE BOARD



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried unani-

mously by roll call vote that the action of the Committee

become the action of the Board.



6. Proposed Change of Zoning near Reno Campus



Mr. Pine presented the proposed zoning changes as

follows:



A. #C-11-66R. 6 acres situated on NE corner of Valley

Road and Sadler Way, proposed to change from R-1

and R-2 to R-3. It is recommended that no protest

be made.



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

without dissenting vote that the Committee recom-

mend to the Board of Regents that no protest be

made.



B. #C-12-66R. 3 acres south of Interstate 80 on W. 6th

Street at Canal Street, proposed to change from R-3

to C-2. It was recommended that, since this proper-

ty is beyond 300 feet from the University of Nevada

property and of no interest to the University, no

position be taken by the University.



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

without dissenting vote that no position be taken

in this proposed zoning change.



C. #C-16-66R. Southwest corner of North Sierra and

Maple Streets, proposed change from R-5 to C-2. It

was recommended that since this property may also

be beyond the 300 foot distance from the University

of Nevada property and of no interest to the Univer-

sity, no protest be made.



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

without dissenting vote that no position be taken

in this proposed zoning change.



D. #C-18-66R. West side of North Sierra Street between

10th and 11th Streets, proposed change from R-3 to

R-5. It was recommended that no protest be made to

this proposed zoning change, but that Mr. Pine be

requested to represent the University at the meeting

of the Regional Planning Commission to recommend

that there be a 10' setback on all property north

of 10th Street (with explanation to Regional Plan-

ning Commission as to the desirability for seeking

such a setback).



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

without dissenting vote that the above recommenda-

tion be approved.



7. Anelli Property



Mr. Pine presented the description of the Anelli proper-

ty and stated that it did not include the complete area

which the University contemplated purchasing. There are

18.173 acres instead of 21 acres as originally indicat-

ed.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the State Planning Board be

requested not to negotiate for the remaining acres of

the Anelli property and that the money be held and ap-

plied to some other item approved by the Legislature.

It was further suggested that Mr. Hancock be asked to

report further to the Committee concerning the status

on this Master Plan at its meeting on September 17.



Action by the Board:



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried unani-

mously that the action of the Committee become the action of

the Board.



8. Stadium Parking Lot



Mr. Pine reported on the status of the Stadium Parking

Lot indicating that bids will be opened on September 1.



9. Evans Creek Dam



Mr. Pine reported that the Director of Public Works for

the City of Reno stated that the University of Nevada,

City of Reno, and the State Highway Department were

joint sponsors of the Evans Creek Dam and that the

Dam would probably be built within two years. There

was no action necessary on this, but Mr. Pine was in-

structed to report on this project again at the next

meeting of the Plant and Property Committee on August

23, 1965.



The meeting adjourned at 9:35 P.M.



4. Report of the Plant and Property Committee of August 23,

1965



Mr. Davis presented the minutes of the meeting as follows:



The Plant and Property Committee met in the Travis Lounge

of the Student Union building on August 23, 1965. Present

were Regents Anderson, Davis, Hug, Jacobsen and Lombardi;

Chancellors Miller and Moyer, Vice President Humphrey,

Mr. Pine, Mr. Hancock of the State Planning Board, and

Mr. Edward B. Henricks, A. I. A. (for a portion of the

meeting).



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Jacobsen at

7:35 P.M.



1. Nevada Southern University Dormitory - Dining



Mr. Pine reported that further study of the Dormitory -

Dining problem at Nevada Southern University had been

made.



A study of the California plans was made and the follow-

ing noted:



Residence Hall Unit 6 Type A



Wood frame, stucco exterior, gang showers, lavator-

ies, various size rooms, i.e., single, double,

suite (4), capacity 60, 3 stories.



Type B same as Type A, 2 stories, capacity 60.



The above plans would require an agreement with the

architect and a redesign of mechanical as well as

structural. Mr. Pine did not recommend adoption of

this plan because of the construction material.



Residence Halls Unit 7 Type A



Pre-cast concrete panels, gang showers and lavator-

ies, various size rooms, i.e., single, double,

suite (4), capacity 69, 3 stories.



This plan also would require an agreement with the

architect and a redesign of mechanical as well as

structural. Mr. Pine did not recommend adoption of

this plan.



In the case of the Nye Hall plans a sketch was submitted

indicating the floor plan of a two story building. Mr.

Pine indicated that should this plan be adopted it would

be necessary to rework the structural plan and the

mechanical and it would require a great deal of time to

rework this plan.



Mr. Pine recommended that the Knighton plans be used as

background and that another architect be employed to

redraw them to our specifications. He indicated that

the plan should be reworked structurally and mechanical-

ly for major savings in mode of construction. The fol-

lowing firms have been contacted and are available for

working up a set set of plans in the near future:



Zick and Sharp

James T. Mc Daniel

Gerald Moffitt

E. B. Hendricks



Mr. Pine indicated that the plans of existing Dormito-

ries on the Reno Campus had been considered but recom-

mended that the plans not be used. He submitted fol-

ing additional information on the various plans as to

costs explaining that the costs were not corrected to

present day prices.



Dormitory Cost per Student Cost per Sq. Foot



Nye 4,410.00 21.50

White Pine 4,305.00 20.00

Juniper 3,305.00 16.00

Knighton Plan 6,670.00 29.45

Calif. 7A Concrete 25.60

Calif. 6A Wood 19.20

Proposed 4,400.00 22.00



Mr. Hendricks was called into the meeting and Mr.

Jacobsen requested that he give a brief description

of what he would propose to do about the plans.

Mr. Hendricks submitted the following letter:



"May we submit the following as recommendations,

proposals and time scheduling:



"1. We would completely redraw both buildings,

and rewrite the specifications.



"2. We would re-layout the Dining Hall in the form

of a rectangular building, maintaining the

relationships and internal circulation as

previously approved by the University, but

incorporating any new ideas and features

which the University may recommend.



"3. The basic design and layout of the Dormitory

building is sound; however, we would incorpo-

rate a new structural system, again maintain-

ing the relationships and internal circulation

as previously approved by the University.



"4. We would complete this work in time to issue

completely new drawings and specifications to

contractors in order to receive and open con-

struction bids on or about November 26, 1965.

Anticipating a start of construction no later

than the middle of December 1965, we would

schedule completion of both buildings by the

first part of August 1966.



"5. We would provide the above mentioned Architect-

ural, Structural, Mechanical and Electrical

Engineering and Supervision Services for the

remaining amount of the fee in Mr. Knighton's

original contract.



"6. If this firm were selected by the University

and State Planning Board to provide complete

Architectural and Engineering Services for

Phase II of the Dormitory building, we would

provide said services for a fee of four percent

(4%) of the amount budgeted for the project.

Provided, of course, that we would be allowed

to use a similar engineering system and design

as incorporated in Phase I."



Mr. Hendricks stated that he could have the intermediate

plans ready to submit to the Plant and Property Commit-

tee at its meeting on September 17.



Mr. Pine recommended that Mr. Hendricks be retained to

redesign the project using the Knighton plans as pre-

liminary plans.



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

without dissenting vote that Mr. Pine's recommendation

be approved and that Mr. Hendricks be retained to re-

design the project under the terms outlined in his let-

ter of August 19. It was noted in the motions that the

selection of an architect for the second unit would be

a State Planning Board action and, therefore, the Board

of Regents could not guarantee the awarding of such a

contract to Mr. Hendricks. Mr. Hendricks stated that

he was aware of this condition and would proceed under

those terms.



Action by the Board:



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

unanimously that the action of the Committee become the

action of the Board.



2. Block N. Drainage Plane (Evans Creek Dam)



Mr. Pine reported that he had done some research of

records and found the following concerning the Evans

Creek Dam:



On November 7, 1963 the Building Committee adopted a

motion that the University agree to serve as co-spon-

sors. The information passed on to the Building Com-

mittee indicated no financial obligation was expected.

The Board of Regents approved this policy at its meet-

ing of December 7, 1963.



The present status is that the State Highway Department

has agreed to expend some funds on the engineering stud-

y. The sponsors will remain City of Reno, State Highway

Department, University of Nevada and the North Truckee

Soil Conservation District.



3. Master Plan Landscaping Nevada Southern University



Mr. Pine reported that the State Planning Board had for-

warded two sets of the Master Plan for Nevada Southern

University Campus. Mr. Pine recommended that the plan

be approved with the modification that the ground cover

"Lantana" symbol "m" not be used and that serious con-

sideration be given to reduce the height of the various

trees. In Mr. Pine's opinion the heights of the trees

as specified would increase the project cost consider-

ably and very little would be accomplished in the way

of landscaping. Mr. Hancock has requested Mr. Smutzer

to present an estimate of the work that can be accom-

plished for the allocated funds.



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried with-

out dissenting vote that the plan be approved with the

modification as recommended by Mr. Pine concerning

ground cover and size of trees.



Action by the Board:



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

unanimously that the action of the Committee become the

action of the Board.



4. Report of Progress



A. Nye Hall. Excavation is complete. Contractor has

begun the setting of steel for foundation. Wet

weather the past two weeks has caused some delay.

On schedule.



B. Radiological Health Research Complex, Nevada South-

ern University. Approximately 23% complete, project

closed down because of carpenter strike. Settlement

of strike not expected soon.



C. Water Resources Building. Some delay being exper-

ienced because of glaziers' strike. Painting of the

interior progressing. Project about 85% complete.



D. Stadium contractor extremely slow. It is expected

that Arlington Nursery will begin planting proce-

dures this week. Some doubt exists that two mowings

will be made this year at current progress.



Mr. Hancock noted that the Board of Regents had previ-

ously requested a meeting with the State Planning Board

to discuss the Physical Science building. He invited

the Board to meet informally with the Northern Nevada

Executive Committee Labor Day week and then send a

representative to the State Planning Board meeting in

Ely, September 23 or 24.



5. Nevada Southern University Dormitory - Dining Facility



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

without dissenting vote that the plans be designed to

stay within the price but designed for future addition

of stories to the building, and Mr. Pine be instructed

to discuss this with Mr. Hendricks.



6. Cornerstone of Social Science Building



Mr. Pine suggested that he contact the Grand Lodge of

Masons and see if they can set the cornerstone at the

Social Science building on the NSU Campus Saturday,

November 20, following the Board of Regents meeting.



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

without dissenting vote that Mr. Pine invite the Grand

Lodge to set the cornerstone on either Friday, November

19 or Saturday, November 20.



Meeting adjourned at 8:30 P.M.



5. Report of the Plant and Property Committee Meeting of

September 17, 1965



Mr. Davis reported verbally on the meeting of the Plant and

Property Committee and presented the following recommenda-

tions:



1. Intermediate Plans for Dining and Residence Hall

Facility, Nevada Southern University



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

without dissenting vote that the intermediate plans for

Dining and Residence Hall facility, Nevada Southern

University, be approved by the Committee and in turn

recommended to the Board for approval and that the Board

delegate to the Committee the authority to approve the

final plans.



Action by the Board:



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

unanimously that the action of the Committee become the

action of the Board.



2. Landscaping Master Plan, NSU



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

without dissenting vote that (1) the master plan for

landscaping for NSU be approved; (2) the specifications

and bid documents be prepared at the earliest possible

time by the Director of Physical Plant and advertise

for bid; (3) the basic budget developed for $55,000 with

several additive alternates totaling $15,000; (4) the

reflecting pool not be induced until sufficient ground

cover has been developed to prevent it from being merely

a mud pool; and (5) the $3,555.25 balance in General

Deposits, NSU, be transferred to 1-91-3023, NSU

Landscaping.



Action by the Board:



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried unani-

mously that the action of the Committee become the action of

the Board.



3. Application for Permit to Drill a Well at NSU



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

unanimously that (1) the Committee recommend approval

of Resolution #65-21; and (2) Mr. Pine, accompanied by

Clark County Regents and Chancellor Moyer, present

the resolution to the Ground Water Board at their

October meeting.



RESOLUTION #65-21



WHEREAS, the Board of Regents, University of Nevada,

adopted a master plan for landscaping the Nevada South-

ern University Campus; and



WHEREAS, a contract will soon be entered into to accom-

plish a part of this master plan and a sizable quantity

of water will be required for growth of lawns, trees and

shrubbery; and



WHEREAS, the use of a well will be of major financial

benefit to Nevada Southern University and enable much

needed funds to be used for educational purposes; and



WHEREAS, the beautification of the Nevada Southern Uni-

versity Campus is considered to be of major importance

not only to the University, but to the City of Las

Vegas, Clark County and the State in general.



NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED;



That the Board of Regents of the University of Nevada

respectfully urges the Las Vegas Valley Ground Water

Board to act favorably on permit No. 18471 filed by

the Board of Regents with the State Department of

Conservation.



Action by the Board:



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried unani-

mously that the action of the Committee become the action

of the Board.



4. Proposed Land Trade at NSU



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

without dissenting vote that the Board continue to wait

for a reply from Mr. Gerald Leavitt concerning a propos-

ed land trade at Las Vegas and that no further offer be

made at this time.



5. Orvis School of Nursing Building, Reno Campus



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

without dissenting vote that the following recommenda-

tions be made by Mr. Humphrey be approved by the

Committee:



1. The State Planning Board be requested to award the

contract to Dixon-Tiberbi for the base bid less the

deductive alternate, for a total of $592,500.



2. The project budget be revised as follows:



Construction $592,500

Fixed equipment, not in contract 20,000

Architect's fees 32,136

Movable equipment 24,000

Site survey & soil test 496

Supervision of construction 4,250

$673,382



3. The State Planning Board cannot spend more than

$663,960 on this project through its books and

the above budget does not include a contingency

reserve.



To make this workable from the viewpoint of the

State Planning Board, only $14,578 would be used

as the movable equipment budget and this amount

would also have to serve as the project contingen-

cy. If the $14,578 were used in construction it

would mean that a like amount would have to be

raisded by the Board of Regents before the project

is completed and final payment made by the Public

Health Service. It is possible, however, that

some of the equipment included in the basic con-

struction contract will qualify as the fixed or

movable equipment items in the budget listed

above.



4. The funding be changed as follows:



Federal Grant $389,118

State Bond Proceeds 61,425

Orvis Gift & Earned Interest 110,375

Residual of monies made available for

Anelli land purchase by Chapter 341,

Statutes of Nevada, 1965 23,960

University funds by transfer from:

1-91-5000 Property Acquisition Fund 50,335.98

1-51-4119 W. E. Travis Grant 17,991.47

1-51-7002 Alice Dimmitt E. I. 8,524.38

1-51-7004 Hayden Ellicott E. I. 2,230.17

1-41-4001 Diploma Sales 9,422.00

88,504.00

$673,382.00

------------



5. The State Planning Board be requested to negotiate

a deductive change order with Dixon-Tiberti (to be

signed concurrently with the contract) for those

items which, in the opinion of the architect, the

State Planning Board and the University staffs, can

be altered without adversely affecting the building.



Action by the Board:



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried unani-

mously by roll call vote that the action of the Committee

become the action of the Board.



6. Orvis Gift



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Grant,

carried without dissenting vote that the offer

of furniture as a gift from Mrs. Orvis be

accepted and the payment of freight charges be

approved.

$17,500 in cash plus a promissory note to be secured

by a first deed of trust on the property and paid as

University finances permit and pledging the income

of nonrestricted endowment income to retirement of

the debt; and (2) transfers of funds as outlined in

Mr. Humphrey's letter of September 13, 1965 be

approved.



Action by the Board:



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

unanimously that the action of the Committee become the

action of the Board.



9. Capurro Property at North End of Reno Campus



Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Grant,

carried without dissenting vote that the Adminis-

tration be designated to work out the vacation of

the property formerly owned by Capurro as required

by the University.



Action by the Board:

September 17, 1965



Mr. Davis reported the following recommendation from the

Student Affairs Committee to the Board of Regents:



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

out dissenting vote that the Committee recommend to the

Board the following changes in prices and policy in board

and room charges to become effective Summer Session, 1966.



(a) Increase the basic board and room rate for a semester

to $400. The board rate to become $285 and the room

rate to be $115. (This is a $30 or 8.1 % increase).



(b) Increase the daily cash price for meals to $2.90 ($.15

or 5.5%) and the individual meal price be established

at:



$ .65 for breakfast (no change)

$ .90 for lunch (.55 entree including salad, .10 soup,

.10 beverage and .15 dessert)

$1.35 for dinner (1.00 entree including salad, .10

soup, .10 beverage and .15 dessert)



(c) Increase the daily rate for residence hall occupancy to

$1.50 (.25 or a 20% increase) for Summer and other use

in excess of two nights and continue the present rate

of $2.00 per night for one and two nights of occupancy.

Establish the rate of $3.50 per night for special

conferences requiring extra maid service.



(d) The number of meals served per week be reduced to 19

by eliminating the regular Sunday breakfast (although

coffee and doughnuts will still be delivered to resi-

dence halls on Sunday mornings) and substituting a

Sunday brunch to be served from 10 A.M. to 1 P.M. (cash

price to be $1.35 for adults and $.75 for childred 14

years of age and less to encourage faculty family par-

ticipation with the students in this particular meal).



(e) The contract meal service be from breakfast of regis-

tration day through dinner of the last day of final

examinations, exclusive of all days which are official

University holidays or recesses. This will mean an

average of 226 days of service per yer. It will be

necessary for the Dining Commons to close (or offer

greatly reduced service) more frequently in order to

better schedule annual leave for employees and to do

heavy cleaning.



(f) There be no change in the $65 monthly rental (exclu-

sive of utilities) at University Village.



(g) The board and room rates and policies for Nevada

Southern University be tentatively established

identical to those listed above subject to review

on January 1966, when the method of operating the

service (i. e., contract operation or University

operated) has been more fully explored.



Action by the Board:



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried unani-

mously that the action of the Committee become the action

of the Board.



14. Independent Audit of 1964-65 Fiscal Year Financial State-

ments



The following request from Mr. Humphrey was presented to

the Board with President Armstrong's recommendation for

approval:



"We have been advised by the Legislative Counsel Bureau that

the Legislative Commission has approved placing the Univer-

sity on an every other year audit schedule and that the next

audit to be performed by them is scheduled for the 1965-66

statements. A copy of Mr. Norman H. Terrell's letter of

July 30, 1965 is enclosed.



"I strongly urge that an independent audit of the 1964-65

financial statements be secured. This not only protects

everyone involved but is a major advantage to the Account-

ing Office. The audit firm should be designated by the

Board of Regents. The firm selected should be highly re-

spected, be of proven competence and have strict ethical

standards. Many Nevada public accounting firms meet these

qualifications; however, I wish to take the liberty of rec-

ommending Kafoury, Armstrong and Bernard, Public Account-

ants located at 100 California Avenue, Reno. This firm has

done a great deal of work for the University in the past.

For example, a special audit in 1961, extensive review of

our internal financial controls in 1964, consulting regard-

ing accounting system changes in 1964-65 and annual audits

of the Jot Travis Student Union. Their knowledge of our

accounting procedures and the existing working papers will

be of major advantage. They are highly regarded in the

performance of governmental audits. Many local governments

and at least one major State agency are among their clients.



"I requested Kafoury, Armstrong and Bernard to review the

fiscal records of the University to determine the probable

scope and cost of an independent audit. Their letter to me,

dated August 31, 1965, is enclosed. You will note that

$12,500.00 is their cost estimate. Public accounting firms

do not, of course, work on a set price or bid basis. They

are paid by the hour, depending on the qualification of each

member assigned. The hourly fee charged is quite standard.



"I have in no way committed the University to the employment

by this firm. Should a different firm be selected my staff

and I will of course give them our complete cooperation.



"This expense has not been budgeted. I recommend the trans-

fer of $12,500.00 from Contingency Reserve to the operating

account, Office of the Vice President-Finance, to provide

for the audit. Since this amount exceeds the present bal-

ance of the Contingency Reserve account, it will be necess-

ary to delay processing the transfer until the salary sav-

ings are transferred to Contingency Reserve in October. A

transfer is enclosed."



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

mously by roll call vote that above recommendation be

approved.
