                         Reno, Nevada
                      September 21, 1921

The Regents met in the Office of the President of the University
at 10 o'clock Wednesday, September 21.  All members with the ex-
ception of Regent North, were present.  President Clark and
Comptroller Gorman also met with the Board.

Upon reading of the minutes of August 31, 1921, they were ap-
proved by the following vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

Comptroller Gorman, through the President, presented the bid of
the Pacific Coast Boiler Works on a 20,000-gallon tank for oil
storage purposes for a price of $1025 f. o. b. Reno.  The next
lowest bid was $1608 f. o. b. San Francisco.  After discussion
of the oil storage tank situation, it having been ascertained
that C. R. Hill is a member of the Reno Agency which submitted
the low bid presented at the August 31st meeting, the Board
voted to rescind the action taken by them August 31, 1921 in
which they authorized the purchase of an oil storage tank
through this Reno agency and to accept the bid of $1205 from
the Pacific Coast Boiler Works of San Francisco.  Judge Talbot
made the motion.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

Comptroller Gorman presented the final claim of J. Bernasconi
for $150 on the Mining Experiment Station building and stated
that all minor details of construction have now been completed
by Mr. Bernasconi.  On motion of Regent Pratt this final payment
of $150 on the Mining Experiment Station building in favor of
J. Bernasconi was approved.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

President Clark stated that Comptroller Gorman reported to him
that $2413.59 of 90,000 Acre Grant funds belonging to this
University were uninvested at Carson City and asked that the
Board make formal request for investment of this amount.  Upon
motion of Regent Pratt it was ordered that the Regents make
formal application to the State Board of Finance that they do
invest this balance of $2413.59 for the University.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

Judge Curler was asked to talk with Bank Examiner Gilbert Ross
to the end that this amount might be invested to the best ad-
vantage consistent with perfect safety.

Upon the recommendation of President Clark, Judge Talbot moved
that William B. Hilbish be elected Instructor in Physical Edu-
cation for Men at a salary of $2000 for the 9 months' service
beginning September 1, 1921.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

At the request of Professor Frandsen, Head of the Department of
Biology, President Clark recommended the election of Harvey
Bruce Harris as Instructor in Biology for the year beginning
September 1, 1921, at an annual salary of $2000.  Regent Pratt
made the motion and the vote stood as follows:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

Upon the recommendation of President Clark, Regent Pratt moved
that William R. Amidon be elected as assistant in the Engineer-
ing College at a monthly wage of $125 during his service in the
Department of Mechanical Engineering and beginning with the
month of September, 1921.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

President Clark explained the need of additional help in the Home
Economics Department and said that he had arranged that Miss
Campiglia should give practically 1/2 of her time during the
College year to this work, such 1/2 during our University year
would be 1/3 of her entire year of service under Smith-Hughes
funds, which in salary terms would amount to $833.33.  1/2 of
this amount would be a little more than $400 that the University
would need to pay on subsidisable courses.  In order that Miss
Campiglia may so arrange her time as to be free to help Miss
Lewis in courses that are not subsidisable, the President rec-
ommended a further payment from University funds to Miss
Campiglia of $250 in addition to the University's $400 plus as
above explained.  This would make the total University expense
for Miss Campiglia's 1/2 time service only $666.67.  We could
not get a 1/2 time person for this work and if we had to employ
one whose time was not otherwise partly paid for, the expense
to the University would be at least $1500, probably $1800.

On the recommendation of the President, Regent Pratt moved,
first, that we do pay Miss Campiglia the sum of $250 in 10 month-
ly installments, beginning with September 1, 1921, and, second,
that the Regents hereby authorize the President to arrange for
payment, either to Miss Campiglia or to the State Vocational
Board as this Board may desire, during the year of 1/2 of 1/3
of her present salary, or $417.67, making a total University
cost of $666.67.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

On the recommendation of the President, Judge Talbot moved that
the Regents make the usual payment of $375 to the University
Sagebrush for the Regents' Mailing List of not less than 250
copies of the weekly student publication during this University
year of 1921-22.  Vote:

    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Judge Talbot         Aye
    Judge Curler         Aye

Followed a general discussion of tuition, room rent, Dining Hall
charges, a brief report on the oil situation showing a profit
to local handlers of oil of about 40%, the question of beautify-
ing the Campus, etc., after which the Board adjourned with the
understanding that the next meeting would be at 10 o'clock Fri-
day morning, September 30th.
