          of claims which had been approved by the Executive
          Committee, as follows:

          As requested by the Board of Regents, Mr. Hayden
          looked into the requirement for signatures on Uni-
          versity payroll and claims, and submitted the follow-
          ing:

              With reference to the signatures we have been re-
              quiring on payrolls and claims every month, I
              have contacted both Mr. Jacobsen, Legislative
              Auditor, and Mr. Carlson, State Budget Director,
              and they advised me that they know of no State
              regulation requiring Regents' signatures.  They
              further advised that they will accept any signa-
              ture, or signatures, that the Board of Regents
              wish to authorize.

          Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, car-
          ried unanimously that previous resolution of the
          Board requiring signatures of 3 members of the Board
          of Regents on payroll and claims be rescinded, and
          that all claims of the University be approved and
          paid under the signature of the Comptroller, and the
          President or a member of the Board of Regents.

          President Stout then called on Mr. Hayden to present

              State Claims, numbers 78-16 to 78-25 inclusive
              for a total of $178,670.45 for September.

          Motion by Dr. Lombardi, seconded by Mr. Broadbent,
          carried unanimously that the above claims be approved.

 3.  Liability Insurance

     President Stout called on Mr. Hayden to give the following
     report for the information of the Board:

         You will recall that the Attorney General has reversed
         the opinion of former Attorney General Alan Bible in
         that the University is not required to carry liability
         insurance.

         Last July a visitor on the Campus fell on the brick
         walk and broke her hip.  The matter was turned over
         to the Travelers Insurance Company and, upon investi-
         gation by their Investigator, denied liability.  At-
         torney Halley contacted the Attorney General regarding
         the matter and in his reply to Mr. Halley the Attorney
         General stated that he had requested the University to
         cancel its liability policy.  I called the Attorney
         General right away but he was out of town for a week.
         Last Tuesday morning I called him and stated that due
         to the short period of time remaining until the policy
         lapsed, perhaps we could let it ride until cancellation
         date, but he said that it should be cancelled.  I,
         therefore, returned the policy to the Travelers Insur-
         ance Company with a letter saying we were requesting
         cancellation as of that date.  When I was in Carson
         Wednesday, Mr. Dickerson flagged me down on the high-
         way.  I advised him of what I had done.  He said that
         was fine and that at a meeting of the Board of Control
         a notice is coming out stating that no liability
         policies are to be carried on anything other than
         automobiles.

 4.  Candidates for Degrees

     President Stout called on Dr. Wood to present the list of
     candidates for degrees, effective August 23, 1957.  The
     list had been approved by the faculty of the College in-
     dicated and by the Academic Deans.  Pertinent records of
     each candidate were checked and cleared as appropriate by
     the Registrar and the Comptroller.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried
     unanimously that the candidates be approved and that they
     be granted degrees, as follows:

11.  Building Program

     President Stout called on Mr. Poolman.  Mr. Bissell, Mr.
     Hancock and Mr. Sutton of the State Planning Board were
     present for this item of business.

     a)  Furniture - Home Economics Building - Opening of bids
         was held in the President's office on Tuesday, August
         30, 1957.  The bids were opened by President Stout at
         4 P.M.  Present:  Comptroller Hayden, Engineer Poolman
         and representatives of the bidding firms - Mr. Armanko,
         Mr. Records and Mr. Morrill.

         Bids were received for tablet arm chairs and tables for
         classrooms as follows:

             Morrill and Machabee           $6,077.99
             Armanko Office Supply Company   5,951.25

         Bids were received for office furniture as follows:

             A. Carlisle and Company       $12,343.27
             Morrill and Machabee            8,099.62
             Armanko Office Supply Company   8,066.41

         Recommendation:  Bid for tablet arm chairs and tables
         for classrooms be awarded to Armanko Office Supply
         Company, whose bid of $5,951.25 is the low bid.  On
         the office furniture I wish to recommend that the bid
         be awarded to Morrill and Machabee, even though their
         bid of $8,099.62 is $33.21 higher than the Armanko
         bid.  My reason for this is that we are equipping the
         entire building and because we make purchases like
         this only once in 25 to 30 years, I believe that in
         awarding the bid to a supplier that handles a "One
         Company" line of office furniture, we are getting
         uniformity, color and size which not only makes good
         looking offices, but allows for interchange of furni-
         ture between offices.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                         /s/ P. W. Hayden
                             Comptroller

         Approved:

     /s/ Robert C. Poolman, Engineer
     /s/ M. W. Stout, President

         Motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried
         unanimously that the awarding of the bid, as per above
         recommendation, be ratified.

     b)  Seats in Education Auditorium - Bids were opened at
         4:15 P.M. by President Stout on Friday, August 23, 1957.

         Armanko Office Supply Company and the Builders Mill and

         Recommendation:  In view of the fact that the low bid
         is within the estimate prepared by this office, I
         herewith recommend the acceptable of the low bid of
         B. F. Shearer Company and recommend that a contract be
         awarded to them immediately for this work.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                         /s/ Robert C. Poolman
                             University Engineer

         Approved:

     /s/ P. W. Hayden, Comptroller
     /s/ M. W. Stout, President

         Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
         unanimously that the action in awarding the contract
         to B. F. Shearer be ratified.

     c)  Floor in Education Auditorium - Bids were opened at
         4:30 P.M. by M. W. Stout, President.  Present:  Comp-
         troller Hayden and representatives of bidding firms -
         Mr. Hardesty and Mr. Jones.  The following bids were
         received:

             Hardesty and Son               $3,287.00
             Charles Roy Jones               3,764.80
             Barnesco, Inc.                  3,388.00

         Recommendation:  In view of the fact that the low bid
         is in line with the estimate prepared by this office,
         I herewith recommend the acceptance of the bid of
         Hardesty and Son and recommend that a contract be pre-
         pared and signed for this work immediately.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                         /s/ Robert C. Poolman
                             University Engineer

         Approved:

     /s/ P. W. Hayden, Comptroller
     /s/ M. W. Stout, President

         Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Bastian, carried
         unanimously that the action in awarding the contract to
         Hardesty and Son be ratified.

     d)  Moving Quonset Huts - Bid opening for moving two Quonset
         huts was held in the President's office at 4 P.M. on
         Friday, August 30, 1957.  Bids were opened by Engineer
         Poolman as follows:

             Albert W. Clayton              $7,369.00
             Barnesco, Inc.                  6,600.00

         Recommendation:  Both bids received were considerably
         in excess of estimates prepared in this office for
         this work.  This office has since consulted with the
         low bidder on this work, regarding methods by which
         the cost might be considerably reduced.  We have found
         from Barnesco, Inc., that if the concrete slab floors
         in the new location of the Quonset huts is deleted
         from the work, we would save $1400.  It is felt that
         it would be possible for us, using our own crews to
         still have an opportunity to make full use of these
         storage facilities in th meantime.  I would therefore
         recommend that the bid of Barnesco, Inc., be accepted
         in the amount of $6600, and the contract for this
         work be issued immediately.  I would then recommend
         that a change order be immediately issued deleting
         from the work, the concrete slab, in the amount of
         $1400.  This would allow us to proceed at once with
         this work.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                         /s/ Robert C. Poolman
                             University Engineer

         Approved:

     /s/ P. W. Hayden, Comptroller
     /s/ M. W. Stout, President

         Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Broadbent,
         carried unanimously that the action in awarding the
         contract to Barnesco, Inc., be ratified.

     e)  Housing and Home Finance Agency - President Stout re-
         ported that the Housing and Home Finance Agency advised
         that a 90-day extension of time has been granted for
         the filing of application for the building to be con-
         structed by revenue bonds, making the new deadline date
         December 10, 1957.  Mr. Poolman explained plans for
         interim financing.

     f)  Campus Master Plan - Mr. Poolman explained the Master
         Plan for the Reno Campus.  Mr. Bissell repeated an
         offer of the Planning Board to work with the University
         in preparing a Master Plan of the Campus.

         Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Dr. Anderson,
         unanimously that the University accept the offer of the
         State Planning Board.

     Motion by Mr. Sawyer, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried unani-
     mously that the Regents approve the policy of handling bid
     openings and awarding of bids as is being done at present,
     with the provision that when it is desired not to accept
     the low bid, the matter be submitted to the Board of Re-
     gents.

12.  Food and Drug Quarters

     President Stout read a letter just received from the Vestry
     of the Trinity Episcopal Church, from whom the Food and
     Drug quarters are rented.  The letter stated:  "As owners
     of this property, Trinity Episcopal Church has received
     offers from other parties regarding the disposition of
     same and as property values have increased in the area of
     the property, along with taxes, the Vestry is of the opin-
     ion that increased rentals are to be desired and are a
     necessity."  The Vestry proposed:  (1) A lease to be en-
     tered into by the responsible parties and to extend from
     the date of approval until July 1, 1959 or to be terminated
     sooner at the pleasure of the Board of Regents, (2) Rental
     to be $350 per month and the payment of same to be effec-
     tive immediately, (3) Premises to be vacated by the Food
     and Drug Department at a date not later than July 1, 1959.

     Mr. Bissell offered, on behalf of the Planning Board, to
     assist the University in providing quarters for the Food
     and Drug Department, under mutually advantageous financing.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried
     unanimously that the President be authorized to sign the
     lease with the Vestry of the Trinity Episcopal Church
     under the terms proposed, and that the University accept
     the offer of the State Planning Board to assist in pro-
     viding quarters for the Food and Drugs Control Department.

13.  Board of Regents Meeting Dates

     of Regents be held on the first Saturday of each month.
