                      November 6, 1954

The Executive Committee of the Board of Regents met in the Pres-
ident's office at the University on Saturday, November 6, 1954.
The meeting was called to order by Chairman Ross at 5 P.M.  Pres-
ent:  Regents Hardy, Lombardi, Ross; Comptroller Hayden and Pres-
ident Stout.  Reporters present were Robert Laxalt and Jim Hulse.
The meeting was called to consider the building program of the
University.  Mr. Mackenzie and Mr. Lemon of the State Planning
Board were present for this item of business.

Building Program

    Plans for remodeling the present Agricultural Extension
    building and the present Agricultural Experiment Station
    building (Hatch building) were presented by Mr. Ross as
    Chairman of the Regents Committee on Buildings and Grounds.

    Following general discussion, it was unanimously agreed that
    estimates of cost be secured by the President and turned
    over to the State Planning Board.  A joint meeting of the
    Board of Regents and the State Planning Board will then be
    called to consider the remodeling plan.

Columbia Pictures Request

    President Stout presented the request of Columbia Pictures
    corporation to film scenes for their picture, "Five Against
    the House" on the University Campus.  The Chairman pointed
    out that there is no established policy concerning the use
    of the Campus for motion pictures, but that the precedent
    had been established; therefore, the request was a matter
    for consideration.

    It was unanimously agreed that the President be authorized
    to grant permission to Columbia Pictures, providing their
    activities do not interfere with regular University work
    and providing the filming is done at a time when classes
    are not in session.  The Secretary was instructed to poll
    the two absent members of the Board by telephone.

Request for Use of Mackay Stadium

    President Stout presented the request of Father Welsh of
    Manogue High School for use of Mackay Stadium, free of
    charge, in order that Manogue, Sparks and Reno High Schools
    might put on a benefit football game for the families of
    Gene Mastroianni (killed) and Alfred Sorensen (seriously
    injured) in an automobile accident.  The request set Sunday,
    November 14, as the date for the benefit game.

    The matter was discussed and it was unanimously agreed that
    the request be granted.  The Secretary was instructed to
    poll the two absent members of the Board by telephone.

Note:  Mr. Newton Crumley and Mr. A. C. Grant were reached by
       telephone on Sunday, November 7, 1954.  Both voted to
       approve the request of the Columbia Pictures Corporation
       and the request of Father Welsh for the 3 high schools.
