President Armstrong presented the following letter concern-

ing the request for transfer of certain funds:



October 14, 1964



Dear Dr. Armstrong:



As you know, I am the Vice Chairman of the Friends of

the University of Nevada Library. By and on behalf of

the Board of Directors of the Friends, we respectfully

request that you present to the Board of Regents, the

following proposal:



That the Board of Regents authorize a transfer from

the Board of Regents Special Project Fund (1-51-

4056) of an amount equal to the interest earned by

investment of the available balance of the Book

Fund (1-15-4001) since its origin.



It is our understanding that investment of sur-

plus operating capital occurs by Fund Groups and

that the interest is not usually prorated back to

the individual funds. We would greatly appreciate

an exception being made in this case. The size of

the Book Fund is significant and the proration of

interest earned would be helpful. We assume that

it is possible that if this is done the income

might be matched by the Fleischmann Foundation.



Sincerely,



Clark J. Guild, Jr.



President Armstrong explained that upon receipt of the above

letter, he had referred the request to Mr. Humphrey and had

then received the following reply:



October 19, 1964



MEMORANDUM



TO: President Charles J. Armstrong



FROM: Neil D. Humphrey, Vice President-Finance



SUBJECT: Request of Clark J. Guild, Jr. Regarding

Interest for Book Fund



If the Book Fund (1-51-4001) had been invested separate-

ly and earned interest at the rate of 3.5% per annum on

the average monthly balance since November, 1963, the

fund would have earned $2923.85 through September, 1964.



This is, of course, not the way the fund has handled.

It was invested in confirmity with Board of Regents

policy with other funds as defined. The interest earn-

ed was credited to the Board of Regents Special Projects

Fund (1-51-4056).



In the discussion following, it was the consensus of the

Board that no action be taken on this request until Presi-

dent Armstrong had informally explored the situation to

determine the position of the Fleischmann Foundation.



President Armstrong presented the following request for

transfer of certain funds:



Effective July 1, 1964, $6000 of Dr. Fletcher's salary

is paid to him from 1-13-3013, DRI Project No. 13,

Cancer Research. The balance of $9842 is paid from

DRI, Fund One. Again this year we are unable to pay

from Fund One that portion of the fringe benefits

(Retirement and NIC) related to the $6000 part of his

salary and Dr. Fletcher informs me that he has no

other funds available.



I wish therefore, to recommend that $361.53 be trans-

ferred from 1-51-4056, Board of Regents Special Projects

to 1-13-3013 to provide $345 retirement premium and

$60.35 NIC premium. This will, of course, require Board

of Regents action.



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

unanimously by roll call vote that the above transfer of

funds be approved.



4. Building Committee Meeting, October 22, 1964



Mr. Jacobsen read and discussed the minutes of the Building

Committee meeting as follows:



UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA

BUILDING COMMITTEE OF BOARD OF REGENTS

Meeting of October 22, 1964



The Building Committee of the Board of Regents met in the

Travis Lounge of the Jot Travis Student Union building.



Present: Regents White, Hug, Davis, Jacobsen, Anderson;

President Armstrong, Vice President Humphrey, Engineer

Rogers. Mr. Hancock, Mr. Lockard, Mr. Casazza, Dr. Guss

and Dr. Worley were present for a portion of the meeting.



The meeting was called to order by Mr. Jacobsen at 3:25 P.M.



1. Mr. Hancock's request to attend Building Committee meet-

ings was discussed. Dr. Armstrong recommended that Mr.

Hancock be invited to Building Committee meetings and

to Board meetings and that a University representative

be invited to Executive Committee Planning Board meet-

ings when University business would be discussed.



Motion by Mr. Hug that President Armstrong's recommenda-

tion be adopted, seconded by Mr. Davis. Carried.



2. Review of preliminary plans for the Physical Sciences

Project.



President Armstrong read a letter from the Faculty Ad

Hoc Committee which recommended approval of the prelim-

inary plans, dated October 20, 1964, with a requirement

of further study of arrangement within the spaces. Mr.

Lockard explained the plans. President Armstrong rec-

ommended approval of the preliminary plans as recommend-

ed by the Faculty Ad Hoc Committee.



Motion by Mr. Hug that President Armstrong's recommen-

dation be adopted, seconded by Mr. Davis. Carried

unanimously.



3. Disposal of Las Vegas Campus Property, Flamingo Road



Mr. Rogers recommended that the northeast section of

this property be the first traded or sold. With the

dedication of Swenson Street along the center section

line some consideration must be given to the control

of the land each side of this street from Flamingo

Road to the Campus proper. If the land on each side

is retained and is under the control of the Board of

Regents this task will be simplified. This property

along Flamingo at Swenson Street should appreciate

more in value then that at the northeast corner because

the area will be greatly improved when the drain ditch

is placed in a concrete ditch. Mr. Rogers explained

the possible trade for the Catholic Church property.



Dr. Anderson, Regent, entered the meeting.



Mr. Hancock recommended trade or sale of entire C-1

area on Flamingo Road and, if sale, deposit would be

made in Nevada Southern Land Acquisition fund to buy

southwest interior land.



President Armstrong recommended that the land in the

northeast area be considered first for sale or trade.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Dr. Anderson, that

President Armstrong's recommendation be adopted.

Carried unanimously.



It was the consensus of the Board members that possible

trade for the Catholic Church land also be pursued.



Dr. Anderson concurred in the action on the Physical

Science Project.



4. Report Entitled "Revision of Renewable Resource Program"

Developed by the College of Agriculture



President Armstrong reviewed the previous action by the

Building Committee on this request. Dean Bohmont re-

viewed his letter of request which outlined the method

that could be followed to accomplish this project. He

stated that the office-conference, classroom area could

be accomplished first by use of $100,000 on hand and

two grants of Federal Pesticide Facility Matching funds

of $23,610 each; later, the two wings could be built

and then the research facility could be accomplished.



President Armstrong recommended that Dean Bohmont's

proposal be approved.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Hug, that

President Armstrong's recommendation be adopted.

Carried unanimously.



Meeting adjourned at 4:50 P.M.



James D. Rogers

Acting Secretary



Item #1 - Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Davis,

carried unanimously that action of the Committee become

action of the Board.



Item #2 - Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. White,

carried unanimously that the recommendation of the Commit-

tee be adopted.



Item #3 - Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Dr. Anderson,

that the action of the Committee become the action of the

Board, carried with Mr. Germain opposing and all others

voting "aye".



President Armstrong recommended that the Building Committee

be authorized to act for the Board of Regents in the matter

of any land transaction proposed by the Planning Board con-

cerning the Flamingo Road property.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously that the President's recommendations be approved.



Item #4 - Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Davis,

carried unanimously that action of the Committee become

action of the Board.



President Armstrong called the Regents' attention to an

item carried over from the previous meeting of the Board

wherein the Regents had verbally approved the site location

of the DRI building with the stipulation that formal action

would be taken at this meeting.



Motion by Mr. Davis, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, that the

informal action of September 19 of the Board be confirmed

and the recommended site for the DRI building be approved,

carried with Mr. Germain opposing and all others voting

"aye".



Dr. White expressed a desire to see a land acquisition foun-

dation established to take care of the future land needs for

both Campuses. Dr. Anderson concurred and furthur stated

the University should be looking for additional land while

it is still available and fairly reasonably priced.



5. 4-H Camp at Lake Tahoe



President Armstrong reported that proposed legislation is

now being drafted whereby the status of the camp would be

clarified. The University Administration is going over

recommendations.



6. At the suggestion of Chairman Magee, Dr. Anderson, who

attended the AGB meeting at Chapel Hill, North Carolina,

gave a short report of the meeting. Mr. Germain also re-

ported briefly on the session hosted by AGB at the American

Council on Education meeting in San Francisco.



7. Progress Report - Building Program



Mr. Rogers presented the following report from the State

Planning Board, showing the status of capital improvement

projects of the University of Nevada under the jurisdiction

of the Nevada State Planning Board:



1. University of Nevada, Reno Campus



(a) Construction Projects



1. Installation of Fluid Mechanics Laboratory,

Engineering-Mines Building. Filing of Notice

of Completion is pending resolution of 1 item

of work.



2. Connection of Laboratory Benches, Engineering-

Mines Building. All work on the original con-

tract has been completed. Additional work re-

quested by the University of Nevada is nearly

Plans are pending approval by the University

prior to being reviewed by the Nevada State

Planning Board. It is anticipated that the

Architects can be authorized to proceed with

the working drawings early in November, 1964.

Architect indicates that it will take him 5

to 6 months to complete the working drawings.

We therefore anticipate a bid date in May of

1965. Based on this analysis we have requested

the Bonding Commission to delay sale of bonds

until March, 1965.



2. Physical Science Building. Preliminary plans

are pending approval by University of Nevada.

Upon approval of the University and the State

Planning Board, contract will be negotiated

with the Architect for the design of the Chem-

istry Classroom portion of this complex. Arch-

itect anticipates that 6 months will be requir-

ed for the completion of working drawings on

this portion of the work. Based on this sched-

ule we anticipate a bid date some time in July,

1965.

dicated that there may be some difficulty in

occupying the classroom portion of the build-

ing as early as anticipated.



2. Water Line to Dormitories. Contract has been

completed pending final sterilization of the

line by the State Department of Health.

In the discussion following the presentation of the status

reports, Dr. Anderson asked if provisions should be made

in the new buildings for educational television facilities.

Mr. Rogers explained that mixer rooms where possible are

being provided for such purposes and conduits are being

placed in the building for later use. He further explained

that his office is working with Dr. Potter of Audio Visual

Aids to determine the availability of federal funds for

educational television purposes.



8. Report of Meeting of Special Ad Hoc Committee on Property

Acquisition



Dr. Anderson presented minutes of meeting as follows:



October 5, 1964



The meeting was called to order at 8 P.M. in the President's

Office. Dr. Fred M. Anderson presided as Chairman. Present

were Regents Proctor R. Hug, Jr. and Grant Davis. Also

present were Deputy Attorney General Daniel R. Walsh, Uni-

versity Engineer James D. Rogers and Vice President-Finance

Neil D. Humphrey.



Mr. Humphrey reviewed the problems as follows:



1. The Attorney General has issued an opinion that the

University can purchase real property with non-ap-

propriated funds, can purchase subject to a mortgage

but cannot borrow money.



2. The Board of Regents has authorized purchases within

a defined area and allocated $50,000 for this pur-

pose.



3. No property has been purchased yet although four

parcels have been offered and appraised. In three

cases the property was owned in fee simple and

would have required a new mortgage. In one case

the existing mortgage was less than 1/3 the value

of the property.



4. The First National Bank of Nevada has agreed that

it would mortgage this property with the existing

owner, but the terms would be 6 1/2% for 15 years.



The consensus was that purchasing property with 6 1/2%

encumbrances was not defensible when the University

could secure 3 1/2% to 4% money if it had the legal

ability. Various alternatives were discussed at length.



It was agreed that the owners of the four parcels under

consideration should be notified that the University is

not now able to purchase their property and that legis-

lation should be requested which will: (1) authorize

the purchase of property and the borrowing of money for

this purpose, and (2) clarify title to all present Uni-

versity property.



Meeting ajourned at 10:20 P.M.



Neil D. Humphrey

Acting Secretary



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

unanimously that legislation should be requested which

would authorize the purchase of property and the borrowing

of money for this purpose.



There was much discussion regarding possible acquisition

of other land by the University to fulfill future require-

ments. Dr. White again suggested the formation of a land

acquisition foundation for just such a purpose. Mr. Hancock

then discussed with the Regents a pilot program now underway

in the Las Vegas area whereby State, City or County agencies

can request from the BLM the withdrawal of certain public

lands to prevent their being patented to private individ-

uals. This land could then be patented to the agency, in

this instance the University. Mr. Hancock indicated that

Mr. Penny of the BLM is trying to wind up this program by

November 15 and if the University has a requirement for this

kind of property, a request should be made to the BLM as

soon as possible. President Armstrong stated that this tied

in with the proposed Natural History Reservation and report-

ed as follows on the letter from Dr. Deacon:



The District Director in Las Vegas asked me to pass

along his recommendation that the University of Nevada

request a "Protective Withdrawal" for Carpenter Canyon

instead of attempting to purchase. He assured me that

such action would allow the University to use the area

as if they owned it. He feels that this arrangement

would put him in a more favorable position to counter

possible public opposition.



Following withdrawal, the University would enter into

a "Use Agreement" with BLM. This agreement would spell

out the privileges, restrictions and responsibilities

of both organizations.



Dr. Williams spoke recently with Mr. Melvin Bowman, the

holder of grazing rights. He appeared tentatively fav-

orable but wanted to discuss the matter more thoroughly

when his lawyer could participate. We will probably

have to allow some grazing at certain times of the year

regardless of whether purchase or withdrawal is effect-

ed.



The final report of the Natural History Reservation

Committee recommended purchase....



... BLM spokesmen have stated that should we request a

"Protective Withdrawal" BLM local, State and national

officials would proceed with haste to withdraw the land

and develop a Use Agreement with us.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried unani-

mously that the Building Committee, with the cooperation

of representatives of the State Planning Board, be given

authority to negotiate with representatives of the Bureau

of Land Management for acquisition and withdrawal of BLM

land in Clark County, and if time limitations require to

enter into an agreement with BLM for such acquisition or

withdrawal.

12. Citizen's Advisory Committee on Nursing Program



President Armstrong presented the following letter from Mr.

James R. Harrison, Chairman, Citizen's Advisory Committee

to the President for University Nursing Programs, request-

ing the addition of several members to the Committee:



In reviewing the members of the Citizen's Advisory

Committee to the President for University Nursing

Programs, we have found that there are very few mem-

bers on this Committee from Southern Nevada. It is

the opinion of the undersigned, along with Miss Elmore

and other members contacted, that it would be desirable

to add 10 or 15 additional names to the Committee from

the Las Vegas area. Not only would it help eliminate

the feeling expressed by some of the southern members

that favoritism was shown to the North, but we feel it

would give additional support to the establishment of

the Nursing School Program at the Southern Nevada Branch

of the University of Nevada.



We would appreciate, therefore, your consideration of

appointing to the Committee at least 10 of the 14

citizens listed on the attached enclosure, or all 14

if you so desire. We hope to be able to invite them

to the next meeting which we plan to hold in Las Vegas

on October 15.

13. Recommendations Concerning Nursing Program



President Armstrong presented to the Board the following

letter from the Nevada Public Health Association:



The results of a year-long study of Nursing needs and

resources reported in the publication "Nursing in Nevada

1964: A Reappraisal of Needs and Resources" has been

released by the Nevada Public Health Association for

distribution to interested individuals and agencies.



The concern for action on implementation of the recom-

mendations has stimulated this letter to the Board of

Regents of the University of Nevada requesting cooper-

ation in the following:



Recommendation No. 1: (Grateful acknowledgement is made

of the University's leadership in already implementing

this action) Begin plans for the development of an As-

sociate Degree program at Nevada Southern University by

appointing a Director for the program whose responsi-

bilities would be:



a. To work with faculty of the baccalaureate degree

programs at Nevada Southern for the coordination

of general education courses with Nursing courses.



b. To work with hospital Administration and personnel

in planning experiences for Nursing students and

establishing written agreements for the utiliza-

tion of facilities for education.



c. To build up the Library for Nursing students.



d. To keep apprised of federal bills and other re-

sources which might aid in adding building to the

Campus or bring in other types of support.



e. To work with school Nurses and counselors in re-

cruitment of students.



f. To develop the curriculum. In order to facilitate

continuing education of the graduates of an Asso-

ciate Degree program who might wish to obtain a

baccalaureate degree, this planning would best be

done in cooperation with the faculty of the Orvis

School of Nursing.



g. To seek faculty qualified to teach in a University

setting.



h. To engage in any other activities necessary for

establishing a sound program.



The presentation of this recommendation to the President

and Board of Regents of the University of Nevada is seen

as the responsibility of the Executive Committee.



Recommendation No. 2: Immediate plans for expansion of

the Orvis School of Nursing be made for an anticipated

enrollment of 200 by 1967.



a. Additional staff to total 20 by 1967. At a 1 to 10

student-faculty ratio and with an enrollment of 200,

this will be necessary.



b. Need for budgeting for more office space and equip-

ment, for more classroom space and all other ex-

penses contingent upon expansion.



It is suggested that the Executive Committee of the

Survey present the findings in this report to the Pres-

ident of the University and the Board of Regents of the

University as justification.



Recommendation No. 9: Immediate thought be given to the

possibility of another baccalaureate degree program at

the Nevada Southern Campus with first emphasis to be

for Registered Nurse students.



Recommendation No. 10: Consideration be given by Con-

tinuing Education and Statewide Services of the Univer-

sity to a plan for technical program open to Practical

Nurses for developing technical skills to relieve pro-

fessional Nurses for patient care.



As sponsor of the Nursing Survey, the Nevada Public

Health Association gratefully acknowledges the contri-

bution by many organizations and agencies, as well as

enlisting support for future action.



President Armstrong recommended the Board review the recom-

mendations contained in the above letter. He noted that

the Nevada Public Health Association had acknowledged the

action already taken by the University concerning the Asso-

ciate Degree Program in Nursing and suggested that the

Nevada Public Health Association be advised that the Uni-

versity Administration would give careful consideration to

the remaining recommendations in their letter.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried

unanimously that President Armstrong's recommendation be

approved.



14. Separate Budget for Off-Campus Programs



The following budget for Off-Campus programs, prepared at

the request of the Board at the meeting of September 18,

was presented by President Armstrong with his recommenda-

tion that a separate appropriation be requested from the

Legislature:



Request and Recommended

OFF-CAMPUS DIVISION 1965-66 1966-67



Revenues



Receipts (based on past

experience) 34,350 34,350

Appropriation requested 61,598 60,719

Total $95,948 $95,069



Explanation:



The University presently operates an Off-Campus Division as

a part of General University Extension. The 1964-65 budget

is $28,870 and is entirely dependent upon student fees. The

small communities more distant from either Reno or Las Vegas

have found it difficult to attract a sufficient number of

students to cover the expenses involved. No subsidy has

been available, consequently Hawthorne, Winnemucca, Tonopah,

Elko, Ely, Panaca and other areas have not been able to have

regularly scheduled courses especially desired and needed

by public school teachers.



This budget would enable the University to serve all of

these areas.



Included are a Director of the Off-Campus Center at Nevada

Southern, a Secretary, and approximately $58,000 each year

to pay faculty who will travel to communities throughout

the State. This subsidy is sufficient to offer two courses

per year in six communities which cannot support the present

program.



Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Jacobsen, carried

unanimously that the proposed budget be approved and that

a separate appropriation be requested from the next Legis-

lature to support the Off-Campus Programs for the coming

biennium.



Dean Kelly was present for this item of business. In the

discussion following, Dean Kelly reported that the Educa-

tional Television Communications Survey was complete and

that a report would be presented to President Armstrong

within a few days and would be ready for presentation to

the Board at their next meeting.



15. Housing and Home Finance Agency Projects



President Armstrong recommended that the following reso-

lutions (required by Housing and Home Finance Agency) con-

cerning the construction of Dining and Dormitory facilities

at Nevada Southern, as presented by Mr. Humphrey, be adopt-

ed:



Motion by Mr. Germain, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried unani-

mously by roll call vote that Resolutions #64-9 and #64-10

be adopted as follows:

Mr. Humphrey suggested that, since the final plans for the

Dormitory and Dining Facilities at Nevada Southern and the

Radiological Laboratory were not ready for this meeting,

the Building Committee be authorized to approve final plans.

President Armstrong so recommended.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Davis, carried

unanimously that the Building Committee be authorized to

approve final plans for the Dormitory and Dining Facil-

ities and the Radiological Lab, with the further recom-

mendation that the entire Board be advised of the date of

the meeting at which the final plans are to be presented.



16. Homecoming Day



President Armstrong reminded the Regents of the prepara-

tions which had been made by the students for the members

of the Board to ride in the parade on Homecoming Day and

informed them of the time and place for forming.



17. President Armstrong briefly discussed his plans for a

speaking tour throughout the State for the purpose of meet-

ing with as many people as possible to present the Univer-

sity's future needs and plans for the next biennium. Talks

will be made chiefly to service clubs and a "Budget in

Brief" will be presented which will set forth problems en-

countered due to insufficient funds.



18. After considerable discussion on the areas of research now

being conducted in all Departments of the University, it

was the consensus of the Board that some means should be

found by which they might become better informed concern-

ing projects now active at the University and most spe-

cifically in DRI.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that the Chairman pro tem be authorized

to name an ad hoc committee to undertake a thorough study

of the research projects now underway in all areas of the

University. There were no dissenting votes.



(Chairman pro tem Magee named the following to the Regents'

ad hoc Committee on Research: Dr. Fred Anderson, Chairman,

Mrs. Richard Magee, Dr. Juanita White and Mr. Grant Davis.)



19. Next Meeting



The next regular meeting of the Board of Regents was set
