     Vegas Campus building.  The need for paving was especially
     stressed for parking and to keep the dust down.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Bastian, carried
     unanimously that the Administration look into the cost of
     the project, and if funds are available, that the Adminis-
     tration be authorized to proceed with the work.

 8.  Building Program

     Mr. Rogers discussed the meetings with the State Planning
     Board on September 19 and on October 9, when the University
     Building Program was considered and priorities set.  At the
     meeting on October 9, the State Planning Board was uncertain
     whether to recommend to the Legislature what is actually
     needed or what is needed within the amount of money avail-
     able.

     Motion by Mr. Bastian, seconded by Dr. Lombardi, carried
     unanimously that the University request the State Planning
     Board to support the Board of Regents in this one-time
     spending budget of direct appropriation in the amount of
     $613,000, as agreed by the State Planning Board and the
     University officials present at the meeting on September
     19:

         1.  Central Heating Plant, Reno Campus         $300,000
         2.  Land Acquisition, Reno Campus               150,000
         3.  Utilities, Reno Campus                       59,000

         5.  Utilities, Las Vegas Campus                  52,000
         6.  Landscaping, Las Vegas Campus                12,000
         7.  Removel Mackay School of Mines Building
             for Safety                                   30,000
                                                        $613,000

     Mr. Rogers proposed, and the President recommended, that
     remodeling of Artemisia Hall be deleted and that the pri-
     orities be reversed for the Life Science building and the
     Humanities building.

     Motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried unani-
     mously that the recommendation be approved, and that the
     request for additional projects and priorities be as fol-
     lows:

     New Building:

         1.  Engineering Building, Reno Campus        $3,000,000
         2.  Health & Physical Education, Las Vegas      525,000

 9.  Ladino Dairy Boundary Line

     Mr. Rogers reported that he had sent to Attorney Guild a
     plat of the survey of the land in question, and that he had
     searched the original survey records to 1863 in the Bureau
     of Land Management Office and in the office of the County
     Engineer.  These searches left no doubt in his mind that
     the corner section point is correctly located.  The study
     will be continued and later report made to the Board of
     Regents.

10.  Report of Grievance Committee (Kidwell)

     Mr. Grant read the following report, and it was accepted by
     the Board:

         Mr. A. C. Grant
         Chairman of the Board of Regents
         University of Nevada
         Reno, Nevada

         Dear Mr. Grant:

         As requested by the Board of Regents, the Grievance
         Committee met in the President's office on Wednesday,
         September 10, 1958, at 7:30 P.M. to hear the appeal
         of Dr. James Kidwell, Associate Professor of Animal
         Husbandry.  Present were Regents Lombardi, Thompson
         and myself; Dr. Wood and Mr. Kidwell.  Regents Bastian
         and Sawyer were unable to make the trip to Reno.

         Dr. Kidwell discussed the procedure used in considera-
         tion of the recommendation concerning his promotion.
         He stated that he was asking for no specific action
         from the Grievance Committee, nor from the Board of
         Regents.  The fact that he had an opportunity to pre-
         sent his case was sufficient and might work to the
         good of the University in the future.

         Dr. Kidwell was thanked for his forthright presenta-
         tion, and was told that a report would be made to the
         Board of Regents at the next meeting.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                         /s/ Roy A. Hardy
                             Chairman

11.  Food & Drugs Department

     President Armstrong reported on the meeting he had with 3
     members of the Department of Food & Drugs, at their request,
     in which these individuals presented their views toward Mr.
     Randall and the operation of the Department.  At the request
     of Dr. Armstrong, Dr. Wood had studied the Food & Drugs ad-
     ministrative problems, and submitted the following recom-
     mendations as an interim measure:

     1.  That a University committee be formed to represent the
         President's office as a general supervisory board for
         handling the administrative work of the Food & Drugs
         Service.

         a)  That this committee be composed of Dean Moose, Mr.
             Hayden and Dr. Wood.

     2.  That this committee select from the present Food & Drugs
         Service staff one individual for the main office in Reno
         and a second individual for the branch office in Las
         Vegas to manage the day-to-day routine operations of the
         Food & Drugs Service.

         a)  That the committee might consider as the Reno office
             Management Head Mr. Tim Wilson and for the Las Vegas
             branch office Mr. A. J. Rafael.

     Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried unani-
     mously that, upon recommendation of President Armstrong,
     the recommendations of Dr. Wood be accepted, with the modi-
     fication that Dr. Joe Moose be made Acting Commissioner of
     Food & Drugs, Weights & Measures, at a salary of $150 per
     month for the interim period until a permanent Commissioner
     is appointed.

     A letter from Mr. Randall to the President, in which he
     called attention to his need for new quarters, was read and
     referred to Dr. Moose.

12.  Capurro Property

     Mr. Rogers reported that there is a quitclaim deed dated
     August 12, 1955, which has not been recorded, and an option
     dated August 2, 1955, which has not been recorded.  The
     option calls for a lump sum payment to Mr. Capurro in the
     amount of $43,205 for 16.282 acres.  The legislative Act of
     1957 authorized the State Planning Board to purchase the
     land covered in the option and appropriated the sum of
     $45,000 for the purpose.  In his report, Mr. Rogers stated
     that he had checked with the Pioneer Title Insurance Company
     and they will not charge a fee for insuring the land the
     University purchased from the Evans Estate; that they will
     insure the 14 acres from the Evans Estate or, if they run
     into other difficulties, will insure the parcel of land
     described in the quitclaim deed dated August 12, 1958 from
     Victor Capurro.

     Mr. Thompson asked that the effective date of the option for
     the next parcel of land be made very specific.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
     unanimously that the Planning Board be authorized to proceed
     with the purchase of the Capurro property in line with the
     option dated August 2, 1955 for $43,205; and that the Uni-
     versity Engineer immediately have recorded the option of
     August 2, 1955 and the quitclaim deed of August 12, 1955.

14.  Regents Statement on Salary Increases

     The President reported for the special committee, appointed
     at the September meeting of the Board, to draft a statement
     of policy regarding increases which would be a clarification
     of apparent "automatic increases" shown in the budget.  The
     statement, as follows, was adopted by unanimous vote, upon
     motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Mr. Elwell:

         In order to present all relevant information to the
         Legislature regarding professional salaries, the 1959-
         61 Operating Budget of the University has projected
         typical individual salary increases for each authorized
         position, in accordance with University personnel stand-
         ards for the professional staff, in case these amounts
         should be merited by the individuals at the proper time.
         However, no salary increases are ever automatic and are
         only granted after full review of individual cases in
         accordance with established personnel policies of the
         Board of Regents and are also contingent upon the
         availablity of funds.

15.  Nevada Council on Education

     President Armstrong discussed a proposal by the Nevada
     Council on Education that the University of Nevada join
     with that agency in reproducing copies of a student thesis
     on "Admission Trends in Selected Land-Grant Institutions
     and an Analysis of the High School Credits Presented for
     Admission to the University of Nevada in the Fall of 1947
     and 1957".  The College of Education, in which College the
     thesis was written, has added its endorsement to the re-
     quest of the State Council on Education.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
     unanimously that the University have 1000 copies printed by
     the State Printing Office, for distribution to the members
     of the State Legislature, Nevada High Schools, and other
     interested groups, and that the University accept the con-
     tribution from the Nevada Council on Education as a gift
     toward the project.

16.  Nevada Highway Department Contract

     A change in the contract, approved by the Board of Regents
     on July 12, 1958, between the University of Nevada and the
     Nevada Highway Department, has been found necessary by the
     Comptroller of the University, as follows:

         The original wording:

             Of this total, the wages, salaries and fees
             component accounts for $38,095, the transpor-
             tation and travel expense component for $21,392,
             and the charge for supplies, Bureau overhead and
             general University overhead (comprising 20% wage,
             salary and fee expense), accounts for $7,620.

         Be changed to read as follows (to place charges for
         supplies and other operating expenses where they
         rightfully belong):

             Of this total, the wages, salaries and fees
             component accounts for $38,095, the transpor-
             tation, travel, supplies and other direct oper-
             ating expenses component for $21,392, and Bureau
             overhead and general University overhead (com-
             prising 20% of wage, salary and fee expense),
             accounts for $7,620.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
     unanimously that the above change in the contract be
     approved.

17.  Budget Adjustment - College of Agriculture

     A request was received by the Comptroller from the Dean of
     Agriculture stating that an error had been made in record-
     ing federal funds, in that $10,600 received annually for
     Rural Development was recorded in the Smith Lever totals,
     making the Smith Lever total $21,200 more than it actually
     will be.  This necessitates an increase of $21,200 in State
     Appropriation.

     Motion by Mr. Bastian, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried unani-
     mously that the budget be corrected, as requested.

18.  Jackling Estate

     At the meeting of the Board of Regents on May 12, 1958,
     action was taken approving agreement in the settlement of
     the Estate of Daniel C. Jackling.  At that time it was
     reported that certain persons had appeared claiming an
     interest in the trust property.  Said claimants had agreed
     to a settlement and the attorney for the Estate had con-
     tacted the remaindermen for approval.  The attorney, Mr.
     Burke, now informed the Board of Regents that all the
     remaindermen have agreed to the terms of settlement and
     he is requesting approval by signature on the settlement
     agreement.  Upon receipt of the settlement agreement and
     Mr. Burke's correspondence under date of September 29,
     1958, the Jackling file was turned over to Regent Thompson,
     as an attorney, for study and advice.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
     unanimously that the Chairman of the Board be authorized
     to sign the Settlement Agreement on behalf of the Board
     of Regents.

The next meeting was set for Saturday, November 15, 1958.

The meeting adjourned at 12:35 noon.

                             A. C. Grant
