6. Use of Term "Board of Regents"
At the request of the Board, General Counsel Klasic present-
ed the following change to Title 4, Chapter 1 of the Board
of Regents Handbook:
The use of the terms "Board of Regents of the University
of Nevada System" and "The University of Nevada System"
may not be used by any person, group or organization for
any purpose whatever without the written permission of
the Board of Regents of the University of Nevada System
or the Board's authorized designee.
President Murino pointed out that if the term "for any pur-
pose whatever" is used and the Board enforced the policy
that it would be most difficult for Campus Presidents in
identifying themselves in conjunction with the System. He
suggested the policy might better be limited to "announce-
ments, invitations and solicitations".
Ms. Del Papa moved for adoption of the policy to include the
words "for announcements, invitations or solicitations".
Seconded by Mrs. Fong. Motion carried.
7. Report of the Investment Advisory Committee
The Investment Advisory Committee met at 8:00 A.M., Friday,
November 5, 1982. Mr. Karamanos, Chairman, submitted the
following report and recommendations:
(1) Members of the Committee toured the Nathan Adelson
Hospice, located on Swenson Avenue on the west side of
the UNLV Campus, which is currently under construction.
(2) The Committee had deferred the presentation for con-
sideration of a loan to the hospice in the amount of
$2,500,000 until the full Board of Regents was in
session. Mr. Karamanos stated the Hospice Advisory
Board was requesting this loan for a mortgage to be
repaid over 12 years at a fixed rate of interest of
Mr. Karamanos introduced Mr. Ernie Libman, Executive
Director of the hospice.
Mr. Irwin Molasky asked to be heard and stated that he
represented the Board of Directors of the hospice and
was also a member of the Regents Investment Advisory
Committee; therefore, he would not be making a decision
on this issue.
A member of the Hospice Board, Dr. David Brandsness,
former Administrator at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas,
and currently Administrator of the Family Hospital in
Sparks, presented an overview of the hospice, stating
that it had been estimated to cost $2.6 million and
that half that amount had been raised by the Hospice
Advisory Board in contributions. Further, he stated
that of the $2.5 million loan, 75% of the reimbursement
would come from the federal government in the form of
Medicare payments of the patients.
Mr. Bob Lee, manager of the UNS endowments placed with
First Interstate Bank, was asked to present his views
of the question. Mr. Lee stated that from present in-
formation he feels government and corporate bond yields
will stay around 10-12% for the next few years, and
that the 16% being offered appeared to have merit. He
reminded Regents that of the $16 million in the endow-
ment fund, no more than 70% can be in equity invest-
ments, which leaves 30%, or $5 million, for fixed in-
come investments. He further indicated that Medicare
reimbursement now extends to hospice patients, which
should guarantee a substantial return.
When asked to comment on a "worst case" possibility,
he stated that the appraisal on the hospice is for
$3.2 million, with an allowance for the leasehold
interest on the land. Inasmuch as the University owns
the land, if there had to be a foreclosure, this lease-
hold interest isn't worth anything to UNS; therefore,
the value would be $2.6 in actual value on a pure re-
placement loss basis. However, Mr. Lee stated that he
felt it was unlikely there would be a foreclosure, but
in any event it would be a break-even proposition. He
further stated that the investment potential was ex-
ceptional and should the Regents approve the loan, he
would recommend distributing it through several ac-
counts, rather than entirely as an investment of the
main endowment portfolio, citing as an example the
Atmospherium account at UNR, which, if invested in
this manner, could raise the usable income consider-
Mr. Karamanos stated that the hospice has an $850,000
construction loan from Valley Bank, which would be
paid back out of this requested loan.
Mrs. Fong asked Mr. Libman whether they had approached
any other banks or investors, with Mr. Libman replying
in the affirmative, and stating further that the owner-
ship of the land was always paramount in these discus-
Mr. Cashell stated it appears that the community is in
favor of the hospice project and has a good deal of
support from that entity.
Mr. Buchanan moved that the Board of Regents loan to
the hospice hospital $2,500,000 of a mortgage, with a
12 year payout, with a rate of interest at 16%.
Mr. Cashell questioned the Chairman of the Investment
Committee whether this item had been intended as an
information item only or as an action item, with Mr.
Karamanos stating he had intended the Board to sit as
a Committee of the Whole.
Mr. Ross seconded the motion.
Ms. Del Papa suggested an amendment, that the loan be
distributed through several accounts, one specifically
being the Atmospherium. She also questioned whether
Regents could partially fund the loan, possibly up to
Mr. Steve Lawton, chief counsel to the Health Subcom-
mittee of the U. S. House of Representatives, informed
the Board on the future of Medicare, stating that al-
though there had been deep cuts in domestic federal
legislation, he felt that Medicare would not be affect-
ed. He stated that the trust fund which supports Medi-
care is viable, and that Medicare had been included in
the legislation adopted by Congress two months ago
which now insures reimbursements for patients in hos-
Regent Gallagher stated that since our staff had not
had a chance to analyze the data presented, she would
ask that a decision not be made at this time. Mr.
Cashell indicated that the Chancellor had asked the
bank mananagers to review the materials presented
and report to the Board.
Mrs. Fong suggested there would certainly be other
expenses for the hospice than a loan payback and
questioned whether income would be adequate for all
costs. She further stated that the Hospice Board of
Directors should make personal guarantees for this
loan before the Regents agreed to grant such loan.
Mr. Ross and Mr. Cashell suggested that Vice Chancellor
Dawson and General Counsel Klasic should immediately
begin working with hospice staff, bank managers and
others to draft agreements which could then be pre-
sented to the Board for consideration. Mr. Cashell
futher indicated that should this loan be made it
would not be from educational program funds and that
no academic programs would be affected.
Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Ross accepted Ms. Del Papa's
amendment that the loan be distributed through several
Mr. Buchanan stated that should a default be necessary
the University would still have the land and the build-
ing and that they could immediately move someone else
into the site. Mrs. Whitley indicated that this is the
type of investment the Regents should be looking at
over the next few years.
Mr. Mc Bride stated he could not approve any loan with-
out seeing the documents of agreement and Mr. Karamanos
assured him that the loan would not be approved until
the documents were signed. Ms. Del Papa asked that the
Regents approve the concept and then have the documents
presented for their purusal.
Mr. Buchanan restated the motion as amended and added
a further statement, so that the motion in question is,
"...move that the Regents loan to the hospice hospital
$2,500,000 of a mortgage, with a 12 year payout with a
rate of interest at 16%, subject to proper documenta-
tion being submitted to the Board for approval and
further, that the loan amount be spread through sever-

Mr. Cashell then instructed Vice Chancellor Dawson and
General Counsel Klasic to draft the necessary documents
in concert with Mr. Libman and the hospice legal coun-
sel, and bank personnel, for presentation to the Decem-
ber 3, 1982 Regents meeting.
(3) Recommended approval of the sale of the Davis property,
which has been handled by American Investors Manage-
ment, Inc., and accepted a new seconded mortgage to
replace the second executed by Mr. and Mrs. Davis,
who have now defaulted on their loan.
(4) Accepted a preliminary report by Vice Chancellor Mark
Dawson concerning a deed of trust on a shopping center
located on Lake Mead Blvd., in North Las Vegas, which
had been donated to the University System by Mr. Claude
Howard, and which was a portion of the $2 million gift
to the Medical School. There will be a default hear-
ing on Novembe 16, 1982, at which time it is expected
that the University System will take over the property.
The Committee accepted the offer of Mr. Irwin Molasky
to have his staff review the management and/or disposi-
tion of the property and report back to the Committee
through Vice Chancellor Dawson.
(5) Received reports from Mr. John Chrissinger, Nevada
National Bank, Mr. Bob Lee, First Interstate Bank, and
Mr. Monte Miller, Valley Bank of Nevada.
Also, the Committee received a report from Mr. Tom
Josephsen, Security Bank of Nevada, who suggested that
the account increase the quarterly dispersements to
the Atmospherium Planetarium, UNR from $11,000 annual-
ly to $18,000, and that the Board approve a 100% fixed
income investment objective. The Committee recommend-
ed approval of this suggestion.
Mr. Buchanan moved for approval of the report and the recom-
mendations. Ms. Del Papa seconded. Motion carried.

clude representation from minority groups, women

Aids Office, UNLV, develop scholarship procedures

E. No wages will be paid from scholarship funds. UNR
Campus will seek funds from other sources, possibly

Mr. Buchanan moved for approval of the report and recommen-

10. Wiche Regional Graduate Programs
Vice Chancellor Fox introduced Dr. Roy Lewellan, a WICHE
Commissioner, who presented a proposal from WICHE that
Nevada join with other Western states and participate in
interstate cooperation in graduate education. WICHE's
Regional Graduate Program allows participating institutions
to nominate specific graduate programs for inclusion in the
program so that Nevada State residents may enroll in out-
of-state approved programs at resident tuition levels, and
out-of-state students may enroll in specific programs at
UNR and UNLV. A complete description of the program has
been identified as Ref. E and filed with the permanent
Ms. Del Papa moved that the University of Nevada System
participate in the WICHE Regional Graduate Program. Mrs.
Fong seconded. Motion carried unanimously.
In conjunction with the WICHE Program, State Senator James
Bilbray asked the Board for support of a bill he has drafted
for presentation to the Legislature when it meets in 1983.
The bill would allow the Board of Regents to enter into an
agreement with another state to grant full or partial waiv-
ers of the nonresident tuition to residents of the other
state who are students at or are eligible for admission to
any of the Universities and Colleges of the University of
Nevada System. The other state would in turn grant recip-
rocal waivers to residents of Nevada who are students at
or are eligible for admission to Universities or Colleges
in the other state.
Senator Bilbray stated that this was only the beginning for
out-of-state tuition waivers for certain students, but that
it could be a boon for University enrollments.
Mr. Buchanan stated he felt there should be added a caveat
for supplemental funding by the Legislature for the loss of
out-of-state fees the University would suffer. He was as-
sured that this matter would have to be fully explained dur-
ing the budget process and that he, Senator Bilbray, would
certainly be willing to give assistance.
President Crowley asked whether this was only for reciprocal
agreements and outlined the many inquiries from residents
in the Tahoe area in California who are most interested in
attending UNR. Senator Bilbray indicated that if the stu-
dents satisfied residency in a California institution, then
with proper notification from the institution the student
sould attend UNR with an out-of-state tuition waiver. The
reciprocal agreement is between the institutions, not in-
Mr. Mc Bride moved that the Board of Regents support the
bill. Mrs. Gallagher seconded. Motion carried, with Mr.
Buchanan voting no.
11. The UNLV Alumni Association surprised Regent Lilly Fong by
presenting her their 1982 Alumni of the Year Award. Mrs.
Alberta Stern, who made the presentation, recalled the long
involvement of Lilly and her husband, Wing, in promoting
UNLV, their many fund raising ventures for the University,
namely, the Alta Ham Fine Arts Center, the Performing Arts
Center, Artemus Ham Hall and Judy Bailey Theatre, and en-
dowment interest in the Chinese language program, and more
recently, the presentation of the very valuable Chinese
scroll paintings in Artemus Ham Hall. It was also made
known that the Fongs, in the 1950s, were among the first
to donate volumes to the UNLV Library.
12. Mandatory Home-and-Home Football Games, UNR and UNLV
Chairman Cashell stated that he felt the two Universities
should begin annual home-and-home football games, that many
of the citizens of the State think the friendly rivalry is
good, and that the Fremont Cannon can once again be the
prize for the winning team. A suggestion was made that the
game be known as the Cashell Memorial Game, or the "Boots"
Mr. Buchanan moved that the home-and-home games between the
two Universities be and that if scheduling did not permit 2
games per year, that they alternate sites, and further, that
the games begin with the 1983 season if at all possible.
Mr. Ross seconded. Motion carried unanimously.
13. Establishment of a Regents Scholarship at UNLV
Regent Mc Bride requested that the Regents provide $15,000
from the Special Projects Funds for the corpus of a scholar-
ship at UNLV to be named the Brad Dallimore, Roger Barson,
Jr., and Guy Nakamura Scholarship in honor of the 3 young
high school athletes who had recently perished in a drown-
ing accident. Fred Dallimore, father of Brad, was UNLV
Baseball Coach, and Roger Barson, Sr. was Assistant Athletic
Director at UNLV.
Regent Del Papa suggested that a Regents Scholarship program
should be established which would benefit the entire System
and that this scholarship should be a major goal of the en-
dowment program. She further suggested the Chancellor's
Office should be directed to draft such a plan for Regents'
Mrs. Fong related that a memorial fund has been established
in honor of these young men and that perhaps the Regents
could contribute. Mr. Cashell suggested an amount of $5000.
