         Board of Regents
         University of Nevada
         Reno, Nevada

         Attention:  Mr. P. W. Hayden, Comptroller

         Dear Sirs:

         At your request, and by your agreement with S. J.
         Nielsen, the undersigned real estate appraisers have
         appraised the property now owned by Mr. Nielsen and
         desired by the University of Nevada, according to the
         attached sketch.

         The appraisal panel consisted of Mr. W. A. Mc Neil,
         Appraiser for the Board of Regents, Mr. Thomas P.
         Mc Keown, Appraiser for Mr. Nielsen, and Mr. D. E.
         Mattson, Arbiter Appraiser for both.  Mr. Mc Neil
         appraised the property on January 17, 1956 and Mr.
         Mc Keown on November 26, 1956.

         The appraisal panel, consisting of the above, now
         unanimously agree, in consideration of additional
         factors and the change in general market values,
         that the fair market value for the subject property
         as of this date is as follows:

                           $5,625.00

         We, the undersigned, certify that we have no past,
         present or contemplated interest in the property
         herein appraised, and we wish to state that neither
         our employment to evaluate this property nor the
         compensation therefore was in any way contingent
         upon the value set.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                         /s/ W. A. Mc Neil
                         /s/ Thomas P. Mc Keown
                         /s/ D. E. Mattson

     Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Sawyer, carried
     unanimously that the President be instructed to offer Mr.
     Nielsen, out of unrestricted endowment funds, the sum of
     $5625 as per appraisal made by the panel, for the property
     involved; and if Mr. Nielsen does not accept, that the
     University immediately request the Attorney General to go
     ahead with condemnation proceedings.

     Mr. Hayden reported on the Schmitt property, that Attorney
     Mc Donald had been given power of attorney.  Mr. Hayden
     was asked to determine and report on the amount of money
     available in unrestricted endowment funds before action
     is taken on this matter.

 6.  Curtiss-Wright Corporation

     President Stout presented a proposed agreement between the
     University of Nevada and Curtiss-Wright Corporation as
     follows:

                                             September 10, 1957

         Dr. Minard W. Stout, President
         University of Nevada
         Reno, Nevada

         Dear Dr. Stout:

         This will confirm the conversation had between us with
         respect to the exploration by the University of Nevada
         of all tracts of land and water owned by Curtiss-Wright
         Corporation in the State of Nevada.  My ideas are as
         follows:

         The University of Nevada will provide personnel to
         explore all tracts of land and water owned by Curtiss-
         Wright in the State of Nevada for the purpose of ascer-
         taining any use of the property that would be of bene-
         fit to the Curtiss-Wright Corporation and the general
         area in which the land is located.  Your people will
         consider and advise us of any profitable uses to which
         we might put parts of the land.

         We have made certain plans of our own, but it would be
         our hope that the University would make suggestions
         that would permit us to extend our plans.

         Curtiss-Wright Corporation hereby makes a grant to the
         University of Nevada of $25,000 to be paid monthly over
         a period of 12 months; the University to make monthly
         reports as to the progress of the work.

         Curtiss-Wright Corporation will provide the University
         with an all-purpose vehicle called the Unimog, which
         is to be for the use of the University personnel in
         their exploring or traveling over the land.  It is a
         4-wheel drive vehicle, superior to the Jeep for this
         use.  The value of the Unimog is $4500 and it is to be
         returned to the Curtiss-Wright Corporation at the end
         of the year.  The cost of operating and maintaining
         the Unimog will be paid by the University out of the
         grant.

         The University of Nevada or Curtiss-Wright Corporation
         will have the right to terminate this agreement upon
         30-days notice if it is not convenient for either party
         to continue with the program.

         All reports and matters concerning this investigation
         will be regarded as confidential unless released by
         Curtiss-Wright.

         If the foregoing general outline is in accordance with
         your understanding, will you please indicate your ap-
         proval and at the same time furnish me with a program
         of proposed operation and the names of the individuals
         and their positions in the University who will partici-
         pate in carrying out such a schedule.

                             Very truly yours,

                             CURTISS-WRIGHT CORPORATION
                             By Roy T. Hurley
                             Chairman and President

         Approved and Accepted:

         UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA
         By ____________________

     Motion by Mr. Hardy, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
     unanimously that the President be authorized to sign the
     agreement with Curtiss-Wright Corporation, and that a
     letter of appreciation be sent to Mr. Hurley on behalf of
     the Board.

 7.  Quonset Huts

     A group of property owners headed by Mr. K. W. Pennington
     met with the Regents to inquire of the University's plans
     for the Quonsets recently moved to the edge of the Campus,
     opposite property owned by these individuals.  Mr. Penning-
     ton presented a petition signed by property owners in that
     area protesting the location of the Quonset huts because
     they consider them an eye-sore.  President Stout called on
     Mr. Poolman, who explained the master plan of the Campus
     and the proposed development for that area.  Mr. Pennington
     thanked the Regents for the privilege of discussing this
     matter with them, and the group left the meeting.

 8.  Building Program

     President Stout called on Mr. Poolman, who reported on the
     meeting with the State Planning Board held on Friday, Novem-
     ber 1.  The site of the Las Vegas Campus was discussed at
     that meeting, and its location in relation to the airport.
     Mr. Poolman showed, by use of charts, that all factors con-
     cerning the location of the Campus were taken into consider-
     ation when the site was chosen, and that no factors have
     changed since that time.

     Motion by Mr. Elwell, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
     unanimously that the following resolution be adopted:

         RESOLVED, that, based upon information given to the
         Board of Regents, it is the opinion of the Board that
         plans for development of Mc Carran Field do not jeopard-
         ize the Campus location as presently contemplated on
         the master plan, but we invite the Planning Board to
         continuing cooperation in the development and study of
         that plan as well as those of the Reno Campus; and
         further recommend that the building program be expedit-
         ed.

     Mr. Poolman showed preliminary drawings of the married
     housing units, men's dormitory and the dining hall.

 9.  Bid Openings

     President Stout called on Mr. Poolman to present this item.

     a)  Blinds, Home Economics Building - At 4 P.M. on Friday,
         October 11, 1957, bids were opened for Venetian type

             Quimby's                           2,458.00

         Recommendation:  In view of the fact that all bids
         received meet specifications and are within the esti-
         mate for this job, I herewith recommend the acceptance
         of the bid of Ralph Tillman's, Inc., and further recom-
         mend that a contract for this work be awarded to this
         firm.

                             Respectfully submitted

                         /s/ Robert C. Poolman
                             University Engineer

         Approved:

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

         Since this was the lowest bid, and in order, the bid
         was awarded to Ralph Tillmanns, Inc.

     b)  Agriculture Dean's House - On October 23, 1957 bids
         were opened for Leveling and Supporting the Dean's

             Harrington Construction Co.        3,900.00

         Recommendation:  The low bid of Hardesty and Son is
         consistent with the estimates prepared in this office
         for this work, and since it is the low bid, I herewith
         recommend the acceptance of that bid and that a contract
         with Hardesty and Son be signed for this work.

                             Respectfully submitted

                         /s/ Robert C. Poolman

         unanimously that the recommendation be accepted and the
         bid awarded to Hardesty and Son.

10.  Extension of Evans Avenue

     Dr. Stout called on Mr. Poolman, who explained the desire of
     the City of Reno to extend Evans Avenue and the benefits it
     would have for the University of Nevada.

     Motion by Mr. Sawyer, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
     unanimously that the Board of Regents go on record as being
     prepared to dedicate a strip necessary for the extension
     of Evans Avenue for a public roadway, the exact nature and
     location of which would be passed upon by the University
     Engineer and the City of Reno.

11.  School of Nursing

     President Stout called on Dr. Wood, who reported an enroll-
     ment of 20 students as of September 26.  Dean Gilkey was on
     the Campus and conferred with the Nursing students and many
     of the faculty.  Dean Gilkey also met with the Advisory
     Committee on Nursing, with hospital administrators, nurses
     and others concerned with the Nursing program.

The meeting recessed at 11:50 A.M. for luncheon.

The recessed meeting was called to order at 2 P.M. by Chairman
Grant, with all present who were at the morning session.

12.  Association of Governing Boards - University Audit

     Chairman Grant reported on the meeting in Boulder, Colorado,
     of the Association of Governing Boards, which he attended
     as a delegate of the University of Nevada.  Two matters of
     concern to Universities in general were (1) finances, and
     (2) interference of government agencies in tax supporting
     schools.  In relation to finance, Mr. Grant discussed audits
     by outside firms, and suggested such an audit for the Uni-
     versity of Nevada.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
     unanimously that Regents Grant, Bastian and Elwell be ap-
     pointed as a committee to investigate firms, costs, etc.,
     of periodic audits by outside firms of all phases of Uni-
     versity finance, with the view to possibly including such
     an item in the University budget to be presented to the
     next session of the Legislature.

13.  Revenue Bond Building

     Since the deadline for submission of preliminary plans to
     the Federal Housing and Home Loan Agency is December 10,
     and since these plans need the approval of the State Plan-
     ning Board and the Regents prior to submitting them,

     Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Thompson, carried
     unanimously that the State Planning Board be asked to meet
     between November 25 and 30 to go over the preliminary
     building plans for the dining hall, men's dormitory and
     married housing units, and that the Board of Regents meet
     on December 5 for final consideration.

14.  A. E. Hutcheson

     Regent Hardy, Chairman of the Regents Committee to Hear
     Appeals, reported as follows:

     The Regents Committee appointed to consider faculty and
     student appeals met in Room 205, Morrill Hall on Friday,
     November 1, 1957, at 4:30 P.M.  Present:  Regents Bastian,
     Hardy, Sawyer and Thompson.  Chairman Hardy presided:

     Dr. A. E. Hutcheson, Associate Professor of History and
     Political Science, had petitioned the Board for considera-
     tion of his promotion to full Professor and a salary in-
     crease.  Dr. Hutcheson came into the meeting, was inter-
     viewed by the Committee, and given an opportunity to speak
     in his behalf.  Letters concerning Dr. Hutcheson from Dr.
     Elliott, Chairman of the Department, Dr. Hicks, former
     Chairman of the Department, Dr. Irwin, Dean of the College
     of Arts and Science, and Dr. Wood, Academic Vice President,
     were read and studied by the Regents Committee.

     Dr. Hutcheson, having nothing further to present, was ex-
     cused, and the Committee discussed Dr. Hutcheson's peti-
     tion.

     Motion was made by Mr. Sawyer, and seconded by Mr. Bastian,
     that the Committee recommend to the Board that Dr. A. E.
     Hutcheson be promoted to full Professor and that his salary
     be increased to $7700 effective July 1, 1957.  The motion
     carried with unanimous vote.  Mr. Hardy cast the vote of
     Dr. Lombardi in favor of the motion, on the basis of a
     letter received from Dr. Lombardi, that he would favor such
     action.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried
     unanimously that the recommendation of the Committee to
     promote Dr. A. E. Hutcheson to the rank of Professor at a
     salary of $7700 for the academic year 1957-58 be approved.

     Mr. Hardy read from a letter received from Dr. Lombardi, as
     follows:

         Dr. Hutcheson's request for the promotion to the rank
         of Professor - I am sure that most of the Board knows
         my feeling, when at the last meeting past policy was
         changed when the Board overruled the Administration on
         Promotions.  I felt and still feel that to be consis-
         tent, Dr. Hutcheson should be given the rank of Pro-
         fessor and the salary commensurate with that position.

     Stout, who asked to be excused from the meeting during this
     time of business.

                                            October 5, 1957

         Board of Regents
         University of Nevada
         Reno, Nevada

         Gentlemen:

         I wish to request that I be relieved of the duties of
         the President of the University of Nevada as of July
         1, 1958.

                             Very truly yours,

                         /s/ M. W. Stout
                             President

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
     with the following vote to accept the request of Dr. Stout
     that he be relieved of the duties of the President of the
     University of Nevada as of July 1, 1958.  Vote:

         "Aye" - Anderson, Bastian, Broadbent, Elwell, Sawyer,
                 Thompson
         "No " - Grant, Hardy

     Regents Hardy and Grant spoke on behalf of President Stout
     and his accomplishments during his 5-year term.  Both ex-
     pressed deep regrets at his leaving the University.

     Mr. Grant read from a letter received from Dr. Lombardi
     commenting on Dr. Stout's outstanding achievements as Presi-
     dent of the University of Nevada.

17.  Public Relations

     Mr. Grant presented a letter from Ed Oncken of Las Vegas
     proposing that the Board of Regents retain him "for a few
     months at $1000 a month to set up a proper program and break
     in the man you choose to run it."  President Stout reported
     that no definite plans have been made for a Public Relations
     office.

     Motion by Mr. Sawyer, seconded by Mr. Hardy, carried unani-
     mously that the proposal of Mr. Oncken be tabled.

18.  Student Employment

     Regent Anderson reported on a meeting which was presided
     over by Mr. Sala, Alumni Director, and which comprised
     student leaders, alumni and coaching staff, concerning
     employment of students.  Dr. Anderson stated that at that
     meeting he was asked to present the matter to the Board
     of Regents.

     Motion by Dr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Elwell, carried
     unanimously that the President of the University be asked
     to appoint a committee composed of appropriate faculty and
     other personnel to study the problems of student employment
     and placement, raise from present rate of pay, alumni re-
     lationship to student employment, possible adjustment of
     class schedules and athletic schedules, and to include a
     study of the feasibility of creating a permanent Student
     Employment and Placement Office to properly coordinate such
     activities; suggested membership on this Committee to in-
     clude Dean of Student Affairs, Director of Athletics, Presi-
     dent of Alumnae Associations, President of the Student Body,
     Director of Alumnae Associations, University Engineer, fac-
     ulty representatives to the Far Western Conference and such
     additional faculty and other persons as deemed desirable
     by the President.  This Committee will make a thorough study
     of the problem and report findings and recommendations to
     the President.

19.  Part-Time Coaches

     Mr. Hardy read from a letter he had received, as Chairman
     of the Regents' Committee to Hear Appeals, in which Dr.
     Lombardi stated that if the matter of salaries for part-
     time coaches came before the meeting, he would be in favor
     of sizeable increases for the Ski Coach and the Boxing
     Coach, in view of the large amount of time each puts in on
     the job.  Contracts for these seasonal positions have not
     been received as yet, and the matter was referred to the
     Academic Vice President.

20.  Selection of a President

     Dr. Stout asked to be excused.  There was general discussion
     on process for selecting a President.  It was agreed that
     any suggestions or proposals by the members of the Board
     of Regents be submitted to Chairman Grant before the next
     meeting.

     Motion by Mr. Thompson, seconded by Mr. Broadbent, carried
     unanimously that the Chairman of the Board of Regents write
     a letter to the President of each Land Grant College and
     each State University and other major institutions, request-
     ing suggestions for candidates to fill the position of
     President of the University of Nevada.

The meeting adjourned at 4:45 P.M.
