                 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING
                       October 7, 1952

The Executive Committee of the Board of Regents met at the home
of the President at noon on Tuesday, October 7.  The meeting
was called to order at 1 P.M. with the following present:  Re-
gents Lombardi, Hardy, Ross; Comptroller Hayden and President
Stout.

Dormitory Refunds

    President Stout presented the recommendation that students
    who move from University Dormitories to fraternity houses,
    following pledging, receive refunds on their room rent on
    a pro-rated basis ($3.33 per week) rather than on the basis
    of the catalogue statement on Rebates, page 48 of the June
    1952 issue, which applies to withdrawals from the University.
    This is in keeping with the policy on rushing and pledging
    for fraternities, which was instituted at the suggestion of
    the Dean of Men, with approval of the President of the Uni-
    versity.

    The recommendation was unanimously approved as a general
    policy, the necessary amendment to the rules governing
    refunds to be drawn after further study.

Building Program

    The Secretary read a letter from Mr. A. M. Mackenzie, Secre-
    tary to the State Planning Board, asking the Board of Regents
    to inform the Planning Board of the building priority desired
    for the Campus.  The information will be published in the
    bulletin of the State Planning Board for presentation to the
    Legislature.

    It was unanimously agreed that the Student Union building
    should be placed at the top of the list, the Agricultural
    building second, and so on without further changes.  The
    Secretary to the State Planning Board is to be notified.

Informal Report

    (a)  The only bid received for wet garbage from the Dining
         Hall was from Louis and Emelio Istrice in the amount
         of $241.97.  The bid has been accepted.

    (b)  Gifts were received as follows:

         (1)  From Mrs. Edith W. Albert, $72.25 to convert AT&T
              debentures into common stock, to build up the
              Henry Albert Senior Public Service Prize Fund.

         (2)  The Will of Paul Condos of Reno names the Univer-
              sity of Nevada to receive 1/2 of the remainder of
              his estate upon the death of his widow.  The amount
              of the estate has been variously estimated at
              $150,000 to $250,000.

         (3)  On Saturday evening, October 4, title was received
              from the Kerak Temple Shrine to two banks of lights
              at Mackay Stadium, which had been installed in the
              last two years.

Dean of Men's Office

    President Stout told of arrangements for taking care of the
    work of the Dean of Men's office, with Dean Mobley handling
    the greater portion of the work, assisted by Mr. George A.
    Broten, Assistant Professor of Physical Education, and Mrs.
    Adelaide Steiner, Secretary to the office.  In view of the
    fact that Dean Mobley and Mr. Broten are carrying on the
    work in addition to their regular duties, President Stout
    felt that Mr. Broten should be paid $400 for the 4 months
    and Dean Mobley $600 for the 4 months in addition to their
    regular salaries.

    Dean Carlson will be on the Campus for one week during
    November to study the needs of the office, and then to
    seek expert advice between that time and January 1, 1953,
    when he will take up his duties as Dean of Student Affairs.

The meeting adjourned at 1:50 P.M.

The next meeting of the Board of Regents was set for the
Homecoming weekend.
