Farm Program

    Dean Bertrand came into the meeting at 9 A.M. to discuss the
    Farm Program, which Dr. Stout had requested him to study, as
    authorized in the Executive Committee meeting of July 13,
    1955.  Dean Bertrand read the report he submitted to Dr.
    Stout, including the following recommendations:

        With respect to the Virginia Farm:

        1.  That an announcement should be made, as soon as the
            Board of Regents can meet and agree, offering the
            Virginia Farm for sale to the highest cash bidder
            with the Board reserving the right to reject all
            bids.

        2.  That each bidder should be asked to submit two bids
            on the property, (a) one bid for the Virginia Farm
            with the water rights reserved by the Board of Re-
            gents, and (b) the other bid with the water rights
            going with the land.

        3.  That the bids should be received by the Comptroller
            of the University not later than 4 P.M. on November
            30, 1955 and that all bids should be opened at 10
            A.M. on December 1, 1955.

        4.  That the Board of Regents should reserve the right
            to keep possession of the Virginia Farm for at least
            6 months following the consummation of the sale in
            order that an orderly transfer can be made of the
            experimental work that is underway and in order to
            permit the salvaging of the optimum amount of re-
            search data.

        5.  That the Board of Regents should delay decision on
            the acceptance or rejection of the high bid until
            December 15, in order (a) to give time for a thorough
            investigation of the financial soundness of the bid-
            der, (b) to consult with the Governor to determine
            whether or not he will approve the sale, and (c) to
            determine whether or not the land which may be pro-
            posed for sale to the University meets the require-
            ments for a satisfactory Main Station Farm.

        With respect to the proposed Main Station Farm:

        1.  That the Board of Regents solicit sealed proposals,
            from both individuals and realtors, on a satisfactory
            acreage in one body in the vicinity of Reno which may
            be considered for the site for the Main Station Farm.
            (Here we would consolidate the research and teaching
            activities in this area related to work with beef
            and dairy cattle, sheep, swine and poultry.  This
            farm would also serve as the site for much of the
            agronomy, soils, water utilization, drainage and farm
            management research of the Agricultural Experiment
            Station.)

        2.  That consideration should be given to the following
            points in evaluating the price and characteristics
            of land proposed as a possible site for the Main
            Station Farm.

            a.  Acreage of 600 to 1400 acres depending upon lo-
                cation and soil type.

            b.  Reasonable distance and accessability to the Uni-
                versity.  (Less than 20 minutes from Campus labo-
                ratories.)

            c.  Varied soil types, with 400 to 500 acres being
                of Class I and II land, and with less desirable
                classes being required for the remaining land.
                (It is desirable that the land ultimately ob-
                tained be comparable, for both experimental and
                instructional reasons, to land being operated by
                large numbers of the farmers and ranchers of
                Nevada.)

            d.  Early and adequate water rights.  (A desirable
                location on the irrigation ditch is also a re-
                quirement in view of the continuing urban de-
                velopment which makes it costly for a few ranch-
                ers to maintain many miles of ditch.)

            e.  Adequate homes for a beef cattle herdsman, a
                dairy cattle herdsman, a sheep and swine herds-
                man and the Main Station Superintendent.  (These
                could be constructed on land without such build-
                ings provided the price of land without these is
                such that the remaining money from the proposed
                cash sale of the Virginia Farm would make con-
                struction possible.)

            f.  Other necessary facilities.  (These also could
                be constructed on land without such facilities
                provided the price of land without these is such
                that the remaining money from the proposed cash
                sale of the Virginia Farm would make construction
                possible.)

            sity not later than 4 P.M. on November 30, 1955 and
            that all proposals should be opened at 10 A.M. on
            December 1, 1955.

        4.  That each person making a proposal should be asked
            to submit a listing of acreage by soil types, of

            water rights proposed for transfer, along with a
            Water Rights Attorney's evaluation of such rights,
            and of equipment included in the proposal.

        5.  That each person making a proposal should agree to
            permit designated persons to make a thorough study
            of the soils, water rights, buildings and equipment
            before December 12.

        6.  That on December 12 the Dean's Advisory Committee on
            Research and Instructional Land Needs should thor-
            oughly study such of the proposals that it feels
            might meet the needs for a Main Station Farm and ad-
            vise me about the advantages and disadvantages of
            each of these proposals in meeting the needs for a
            Main Station Farm.  (The Dean of Agriculture then
            would make recommendations to the President con-
            cerning the proposals and the possibilities of the
            proposed land meeting the needs of the Max C.
            Fleischmann College of Agriculture for its Main
            Station Farm.)

        7.  That the Board of Regents announce on December 15
            its decision to accept or reject any proposal.

        With respect to the Ladino Diary Farm:

        1.  That early steps should be taken to transfer the work
            with dairy cattle to the proposed new Main Station
            Farm.

        2.  That at an early date, with the concurrence of the
            Fleischmann Foundation, the Ladino Dairy Farm should
            be offered for sale to the highest cash bidder and
            the proceeds used for the further Statewide develop-
            ment of the Max C. Fleischmann College of Agricul-
            ture.

        With respect to Field Stations in northern and southern
        Nevada:

        1.  That a permanent, University-owned, small-ranch-unit
            Field Station should be acquired and adequately
            equipped somewhere in the northern part of the State
            as soon as it is financially possible to do so.

        2.  That a permanent, University-owned Field Station of
            limited acreage should be acquired and adequately
            equipped somewhere in the southern part of the State
            as soon as it is financially possible to do so.

    Following general discussion, President Stout presented his
    recommendation to advertise the South Virginia street Farm
    for sale and to call for bids under certain conditions.

    Following further discussion, President Stout presented his
    recommendation that, in the event the recommendation to offer
    the South Virginia Street Farm for sale is accepted, the
    Board of Regents immediately publicly solicit sealed propos-
    als which offer to sell to the University of Nevada a satis-
    factory acreage in 1 body in the vicinity of Reno which may
    be considered as the site of the University's Main Station
    Farm.

    Motion by Dr. Lombardi carried unanimously that the recom-
    mendation of the President (a) to offer the South Virginia
    Farm for sale, and (b) to solicit proposals for a Main
    Station Farm, be approved.

    Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the letter
    calling for bids for purchase of the South Virginia Farm,
    and the letter soliciting proposals for a replacement, be
    submitted to Regent Thompson for concurrence, and then to the
    Attorney General for checking and approval, before advertis-
    ing.  (Letters attached hereto.)  (See pages 180-181.)

    Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the President
    be directed to seek qualified appraisers and to determine
    the price of their services, for consideration of the Execu-
    tive Committee, which has authority to employ the appraisers,
    if it so desires.

    President Stout then read the letter of September 29, 1955
    from Mr. W. J. Hudson, Nevada representative of Morgan &
    Peacock Properties Company, which requested that they be
    notified sufficiently in time, of any action of the Board
    of Regents to offer the South Virginia Street Farm for sale,
    so that they might have opportunity to submit bid.

Building Program

    At 10:20 A.M. the following members of the State Planning
    Board came into the meeting to discuss the University's
    building program:  Mr. Sandorf, Chairman; Mr. Bissell,
    Engineer; and Mr. Sutton, member.  Mr. Poolman, University
    Engineer, was present, also.

    a)  Agricultural Extension and Hatch Buildings

        Mr. Sandorf reviewed the Planning Board activities in
        regard to plans for remodeling these 2 buildings.  Study
        and report was previously made by a local architect, a
        building engineer and a representative of the State Plan-
        ning Board in the Summer of 1954.  All of them believed
        that the buildings were worthy of remodeling.  However,
        in the Summer of 1955, the same architect had his struc-
        tural engineer investigate the Extension building more
        carefully.  His report to the Planning Board in August
        1955 was that the cost of remodeling would be excessive.
        He recommended that it be torn down and an entirely new
        structure built.  To double check these findings, the
        State Planning Board hired Mr. John J. Gould, a Consult-
        ing Engineer, San Francisco, California, who recommended
        that the buildings be demolished.  He further reported
        that cost of remodeling the buildings would run between
        60-80% as compared with new construction (not including
        wings or other planned additions), if the remodeling job
        is to bring the buildings up to building code standards.

        On the basis of Mr. Gould's findings and further study by
        the State Planning Board, Mr. Sandorf advised that the
        two structures were not worth the cost of remodeling.  He
        further recommended that the Extension building be torn
        down immediately and approximately $469,000 be spent for
        a new structure on its site.

        For information and file of the University, Mr. Sandorf
        agreed to furnish (a) copy of the letter from the Attor-
        ney General to the State Planning Board in which he gave
        his opinion on the use of the money appropriated for the
        two buildings, and (b) copy of the report of Mr. Gould.

        Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that, based upon
        the information supplied by the State Planning Board and
        the recommendation of the that Board, the Agricultural
        Extension building and Hatch building not be remodeled
        and that the Planning Board be asked to prepare plans to
        remove the Agricultural Extension building and construct
        a new building in its place.

    b)  Student Union Building

        Mr. Sandorf reported that all bids for the Student Union
        building were in excess of the amount of money available.
        Immediately the architect and the building engineer were
        consulted to see where the plans might be cut to bring
        them within the allotted sum and still retain the neces-
        sary features of the Student building.  Mr. Sandorf took
        the Regents through the possible changes in plans, which
        he indicated would bring the bid price down to $360,000,
        leaving a balance for architects' and other fees.

        President Stout recommended that the Planning Board pro-
        ceed as outlined above, working with Mr. Poolman, and
        going in the direction of providing space requested by
        the students and making the savings in reductions in the
        luxury items of the building.

        Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that the recom-
        mendation of the President be accepted, and the State
        Planning Board so directed.

    c)  Manzanita Hall

        Mr. Sandorf reported that plans had been drawn for re-
        modeling Manzanita Hall, as per instruction to the Plan-
        ning Board, and were sent to the Pacific Coast Builders
        Conference for approval.  Some changes were recommended
        by them, which were made and the plans have been resub-
        mitted to the Pacific Coast Builders Conference.  The
        Planning Board has prepared a list of deletions and
        changes, for bid as alternatives, to ensure that the
        bid be kept to the $200,000 available.

        President Stout recommended approval of the Planning
        Board's procedure, and urged all haste.

        Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the recom-
        mendation be approved, and the State Planning Board
        so directed.

    d)  Las Vegas Building

        Mr. Sandorf explained that the Legislature requested
        advanced plans.  He asked for the ideas of the Board
        of Regents and the University Administration so that
        preliminary plans might be prepared.  Likewise, an
        overall preliminary plan will be made of the Las Vegas
        Campus, working with the University officials.

        Mr. Poolman and the State Planning Board members left
        the meeting at this point.

    e)  Housing for the President

        The Board referred to its action and agreements con-
        cerning purchase of the Sam Ginsburg home as a house
        for the President.  Mr. Thompson presented a preliminary
        title report carrying the information that there are
        street assessments against the property.

        Motion by Mr. Hardy carried unanimously that, provided
        the matter of street assessments is cleared, and the
        University receives clear title and title insurance on
        the property, the action of the Executive Committee in
        approving purchase of the Ginsburg property, be ratified.

    f)  Land - North Virginia Street Indentation

        Mr. Hayden reported on his talk with two owners of land
        indenting the University Campus, Mr. S. J. Nielsen and
        Mr. William Schmitt.  Mr. Nielsen desired to trade prop-
        erty for some already owned by the University.  Mr.
        Schmitt indicated that he might be interested in selling,
        but could set no price at the present time.  Reference
        was made to the letter from Attorney General Dickerson
        under date of August 25, 1955, as follows:

            Honorable Silas E. Ross
            Chairman
            Board of Regents
            University of Nevada
            Reno, Nevada

            My dear Mr. Ross:

            Replying to your letter of August 24, 1955, request-
            ing information with regard to condemnation of cer-
            tain land needed by the University, this is to advise
            that under paragraph 2 of Section 9153 N. C. L., 1931
            -41 Supp., condemnation may be exercised where public
            buildings or grounds are for the use of the State.
            Inasmuch as the University of Nevada is a State in-
            stitution this section would apply and an action
            for condemnation would have to be brought in the
            name of the State of Nevada, on the relationship of
            Silas E. Ross as Chairman of the Board of Regents of
            the University of Nevada.  The pleadings and neces-
            sary trial of the action would be conducted by this
            office.

            Every effort, of course, should be made to purchase
            the property at a reasonable figure, as condemnation
            can only be resorted to when a reasonable offer is
            made to the owner and refused.

            If you wish this office to proceed, kindly keep me
            advised.

            With kindest personal regards, I am

                             Sincerely,

                         /s/ Harvey Dickerson
                             Attorney General

    mendation at a later meeting.

    f)  From the American Association of Airport Executives - a
        $500 scholarship for the school year 1956-57, as follows:

        1)  This particular scholarship shall be known as the
            "Pat Mc Carran Memorial Scholarship", and the Ameri-
            can Association of Airport Executives agrees that it
            shall offer no other scholarship under the same name
            at any other University so long as this agreement is
            in effect with the University of Nevada.

        2)  The Scholarship shall be limited to a Senior student
            who is to be selected in his Junior year.

        3)  The Scholarship does not have to be confined to any
            particular College of the University of Nevada but
            its offering should be confined to those students
            who in the judgment of the Administration of the
            University of Nevada are majoring in work which could
            logicaly and reasonably lead to a position in the
            Airport Executive Field - Public or Business Adminis-
            tration, Economics, Civil or General Engineering, or
            such other courses as the University of Nevada may
            offer which are applicable to the intent expressed
            hereinbefore.

        4)  Candidates for the Scholarship need not be native of
            the State of Nevada.  Eligible students whose domi-
            ciles are in other States shall be given equal con-
            sideration.  Further, both male and female students
            are to be considered on an equal footing.

        5)  It is the desire of the American Association of Air-
            port Executives to establish this Scholarship so
            that a Junior student now enrolled at the University
            of Nevada for the academic year 1955-56 will be se-
            lected some time prior to our annual business meet-
            ing to be held in Cleveland, Ohio next April 22-26.
            (We not only want to be able to notify our assembled
            membership of the name of the selectee at that time
            but we want the selectee to be in a position to ob-
            tain even further benefits including the possibility
            of Summer employment at some airport.)

            Pursuant to your letter of August 13 to me the As-
            sociation waived the requirement of a paper as set
            forth in Paragraph 6 of my letter of August 9 to
            you.  Therefore, the continuity of numbering para-
            graphs hereinafter will be at a variance with the
            August 9 reference.

        6)  The University of Nevada shall set up its own arbi-
            trary academic standards in line with scholarships
            as generally administered by it.  The American As-
            sociation of Airport Executives only requires that
            it be notified of those standards.

        7)  The University of Nevada shall accomplish the initial
            screening of candidates determined to be eligible by
            it and shall submit to the "Pat Mc Carran Memorial
            Committee" of the American Association of Airport
            Executives no more than the top 6 names of students
            who have otherwise fulfilled the arbitrary standards
            and requirements established by the University of
            Nevada.  The submission of these names should be
            accompanied by brief biographical material, requisite
            academic and scholarship records, and the recommenda-
            tions of the staff of the University of Nevada.  (If
            the University does not desire to make a specific
            recommendation of one of the 6 candidates it selects,
            it may at its option set aside this provision.)

        8)  The amount of the Scholarship which has been approved
            for payment in the next academic year is $500 which
            will be paid on the basis of $100 per month through
            the months of October, November and December of 1956
            and January and February of 1957.  The funds will be
            paid directly to the successful candidate upon certi-
            fication by a properly designated administrative of-
            ficer of the University of Nevada in charge of schol-
            arships generally that said candidate is a student in
            good standing at the University at the time of certi-
            fication.

        9)  It is proposed to make this award in perpetuity as
            the financial status of this Association permits.
            Unless the University of Nevada is duly notified in
            writing by the President or Executive Secretary of
            the Association that the arrangement is to be termi-
            nated or othrwise altered on or before the first day
            of September of the years following this agreement,
            the "Pat Mc Carran Memorial Scholarship" of the Amer-
            ican Association of Airport Executives shall be re-
            garded as a continuing affair and the University of
            Nevada may so publicize it with the assurance that
            the American Association of Airport Executives will
            fulfill its responsibilities.

        If the foregoing is consistent with your understanding
        of the modus operandi please acknowledge this fact at
        your earliest convenience and feel free to publicize the
        acceptance of the Scholarship concurrently with your
        approval.

        In conclusion permit me to again point out that the
        current constituency of the "Pat Mc Carran Memorial Com-
        mittee" of the American Association of Airport Executives
        is Mr. Joe Hicks, Manager, Reno Municipal Airport; our
        President, Dr. Leslie A. Bryan, Director of the Insti-
        tute of Aviation at the University of Illinois; and the
        writer.  This committee was appointed with the approval
        of our Board of Directors and its determinations are
        binding upon the Assocation.

                         /s/ R. W. F. Schmidt
                             Executive Secretary

    g)  From the Nevada State Medical Association - 2 scholar-

        tions:

            The Nevada State Medical Association hereby agrees
            that, whenever financially able, it will each year

            or if the recipient does not graduate from Medical
            School, within 10 years from receipt of the scholar-
            ship.  If a recipient returns to practice medicine
            in Nevada in any community of less than 5000 popula-
            tion for a period of at least one year, the notes
            will be cancelled.  Between the months of January

            of Nevada Committee on Scholarships and the Nevada

            beginning of the next Fall term, 1/2 of the scholar-
            ship fund will be paid to the recipients following
            enrollment at their Universities.  The remaining 1/2

            records.

        took place in the President's office, as per notice sent
        to all Radio Stations in Reno calling for bids for broad-
        casting rights for football and basketball games during
        the 1955-56 season.

        Present:  Mr. Broten, Mr. Hayden, President Stout, and a
        representative from KOH Radio Station.

        President Stout opened the only bid received, which was
        from KOH Radio Station, as follows:

            Enclosed is a certified check in the amount of $100.
            This amount being 10% of our $1000 bid for the ex-
            clusive broadcast rights of the 1955-56 football and
            basketball schedule of the University of Nevada.

            Should KOH receive the broadcast privileges, it is
            mutually understood that some of the away from home
            games may not be broadcast because of the lateness
            in the execution of this agreement, as well as the
            possible if not probable time demands that could be
            made under our Network contract.

                             Sincerely,

                         /s/ Hugh Kees
                             Manager

        The bid was referred to Comptroller Hayden for study.

        Note:  The bid, found to be in order was awarded to KOH
               Radio Station.

    Motion by Mr. Grant carried unanimously that the awarding of
    the bid to KOH Radio Station be approved.

The meeting adjourned at 12:50 noon.
