INVESTMENT COMMITTEE OF THE BOARD OF REGENTS

Minutes of Meeting of August 28, 1962



The Committee met at 12:15 P.M. at the Holiday Hotel. Pres-

ent were: Board member Procter R. Hug, Jr.; Public member

Julius Bergen; Ex Officio members President Charles J.

Armstrong and Business Manager Neil D. Humphrey. Absent

was Board member Dr. Louis Lombardi. Representing the

First National Bank Trust Department were Mr. R. O. Kwapil,

Vice President and Senior Trust Officer, and Mr. J. C.

Troyer, Trust Officer.



The Committee reviewed a revised copy of suggested port-

folio changes sent to each member on August 24, 1962, by

Mr. Troyer. The suggested changes (copy attached to file

copy of these minutes) totaled $836,738.63 of redemptions

and sales and $834,985.00 of purchases. After review of

questions the Committee agreed unanimously to authorize

the Trust Department to make the changes recommended by

Mr. Troyer.



Mr. Humphrey noted that the minutes of August 21, 1962 state

that the total income to the agency account from Clay-Peters

Building, Inc., was $1800, but this is in error. He noted

that the agency received $1800 annually in dividends and

$600 annually paid to Mr. Kwapil as salary which he deposits

to the agency account.



Meeting adjourned at 1:30 P.M.



Respectfully submitted,



Neil D. Humphrey

Acting Secretary



President Armstrong reported that, following the meeting,

on the recommendation of the Regent members of the Invest-

ment Committee, and with the concurrence of Mr. Grant, Mr.

E. L. Cord was appointed to replace Mr. E. J. Questa as a

member of the Committee.



Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Mr. Grmain, carried unani-

mously that the minutes of the meeting of the Investment

Committee be accepted and that the appointment of Mr. Cord

be ratified.



10. Main Station Farm



Dr. Anderson referred to the proposal for the Main Station

Farm and discussed the Building Committee's action, explain-

ing that it was not clear in his mind that the Building Com-

mittee had approved the plan. Dr. Armstrong reviewed the 2

documents which had previously been mailed to the Regents,

namely, "Development and Use of the Main Station Field

Laboratory for Research, Instruction and Extension in Agri-

culture", dated February 15, 1962, and "Supplement to the

Report of the Main Station Field Laboratory Development

Committee". He pointed out that included in the report

is the proposed budget for development of the Main Station

Farm, with estimated costs and suggested sources for fin-

ancial support. Dr. Young, Mr. Humphrey and Mr. Rogers had

reviewed the report and submitted joint approval. The re-

port had proposed an arrangement involving legislative ac-

tion, and this was the proposal discussed at the Building

Committee meeting, but was not accepted, nor was it recom-

mended by the President. The method of financing, as adopt-

ed, was tied to the acceptance of the six-year plan.



Motion by Mrs. Magee, seconded by Dr. Anderson, carried

unanimously by roll call vote, that the six-year program

for improvement of the Main Station Farm, as presented in

the above mentioned documents, be approved, with the dele-

tion of the legislative program, and with funding through

the method here adopted.

13. Weld Arnold Resolution



The Regents took note of the death of Weld Arnold, and

adopted the following Resolution upon motion by Mr. Elwell,

seconded by Mr. Broadbent, and unanimous vote:



RESOLUTION NO. 62-5

RESOLUTION IN MEMORY OF WELD ARNOLD



We, the members of the Board of Regents of the University of

Nevada, hereby take note, with a profound sense of grief and

loss, of the passing on October 5, 1962, of our respected

colleague and valued personal friend, Weld Arnold.



Regent Arnold was elected a member of this body for a two

year term beginning on January 1, 1959, and subsequently,

on June 20, 1961, he was appointed by Governor Grant Sawyer

to fill a vacant position on the Board. He served continu-

ously thereafter until his death.



Weld Arnold's interest in the University far antedates this

period of service as a Regent, however. During two academic

years, those of 1947-48 and 1948-49, he held appointment as

Lecturer in Civil Engineering in the College of Engineering

of the University of Nevada. Previously he had taught for

the American Geographical Society of New York, the Institute

of Geographical Exploration in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and

the Royal Geographical Society of London, England. He held

the baccalaureate degree from Harvard University and the

Royal Diploma from the Royal Geographical Society of

England.



His academic background and experience made him a devoted

friend and staunch supporter of the University of Nevada

from the time of his first association with us, and his

loss will be felt keenly by all in the University.



As a member of this Board, Weld Arnold served on a number

of its committees, including the Building Committee, the

Legislative Committee, the Code and Salary Committee; and

was Chairman of the Committee on Honorary Degress and

Distinguished Nevadan Awards.



His unselfish devotion to the best interests and welfare of

the University, and his conscientious participation in all

of the responsibilities of the Board of Regents and of its

committees, were truly outstanding.



To Mrs. Arnold and the members of his family we extend our

most heartfelt sympathy, and the hope that they may be com-

forted and strengthened by the knowledge that Weld Arnold

served the University and the State of Nevada faithfully

and well.



14. Elko Trip



President Armstrong reported that arrangements have been

made for the Building Committee, and other Regents who can

attend, to go to Elko for discussion of a proposed Junior

College there. Mrs. Magee invited all those who make the

trip, and their wives, to a dinner on Friday, November 9,

at 6:30 P.M. at the Star Restaurant, Elko. Other guests

will also be invited to the dinner.



15. Cornerstone Ceremony, Las Vegas Library Building



President Armstrong reported that the Grand Lodge of Masons

had accepted the invitation to lay the cornerstone for the

Library Building on the Las Vegas Campus, at 4:30 P.M. on

Friday, November 30, following the meeting of the Board of

Regents, which will begin at 9:00 A.M. on that date.



16. Executive Session



The Board went into Executive Session at 11:00 A.M. to dis-

cuss certain specific personnel matters, and returned to

open session at 11:25 P.M.



17. Dining and Housing Facilities, Las Vegas



Mr. Rogers discussed a report on housing needs from Assist-

ant Dean Dan Mc Laughlin of Nevada Southern, which was re-

ceived after the capital improvement program for 1963-65

had been developed and approved by the Board of Regents.

The report shows that housing should be planned for 133 per-

sons rather than 90 persons. He suggested that the housing

and dining project budget be revised to include the addi-

tional needs and that the Planning Board be notified of the

revised budget for this project. Dr. Armstrong recommended

the request be approved.



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried

unanimously that the Administration be authorized to in-

crease project budget in accord with the new figures above.



18. Next Meeting



The next meeting was set for Friday, November 30, 1962 in

Las Vegas, Nevada, followed by the cornerstone ceremony for

the new Library building at 4:30 P.M.



The meeting adjourned at 11:30 A.M.
