                         Reno, Nevada
                      September 29, 1928

Chairman Pratt and Judge Brown met in the President's Office
to transact the regular month-end business of the Board.  Mr.
Wingfield was absent.

On motion of Mr. Pratt, List No. 22, State Claims Nos. 216 to
223 for the net sum of $18,438.61, and List No. 10, Regents
Checks Nos. 8111 to 8127 for the net sum of $53,179.09, were
approved by the following vote:

    Judge Brown          Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye

(This same morning Mr. Gorman secured Mr. Wingfield's signature
to both of the above lists and thus had the 3 required signa-
tures.)

Chairman Pratt submitted the case of student Hainer and suggested
that President Clark should secure an interpretation by the
Attorney General regarding the non-resident tuition law as ap-
plied to students whose families do not live in Nevada.

Chairman Pratt opened bids for the University's supply for fuel
oil from the following companies:  Associated, Richfield, Union,
Shell, Standard, Eddington Gas and Refinery Company.  The last
named company has no Nevada Agency and their bid was not con-
sidered.  The other prices were, with one exception, all $1.892
per bbl. delivered.  The exception was the Shell Company, which
was one cent higher.

It has been customary to rotate fuel oil contracts.  The Secre-
tary looked up the order of succession and found that the
Standard Oil Company had the contract for 1922 and 1923, the
Shell Company for 1924, the Associated for 1925, the Union for
1926, and the Richfield for 1927.  Comptroller Gorman was down-
town and not available for conference regarding oil contracts.
After discussion the subject was left with the understanding
that on May, October 1st, at a mutually convenient time, Comp-
troller Gorman and the 3 Reno Regents should discuss and ad-
just this matter.
