Manager, UN (check registers filed with permanent minutes).



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried

without dissent that the check registers be approved as

submitted.



6. Approval of Transfer of Funds



A. President Miller requested the transfer of $4500 from

the Contingency Reserve, UN, to the Office of the

President, noting that when the office was budgeted

for 1968-69, it included only the operation of the

President's Office. Subsequently, the Director of

Development and Administrative Vice President have

been integrated, for budget purposes, into this office

and additional operating funds are required.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended approval.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, car-

ried without dissent that the above fund transfer

be approved.



B. President Miller endorsed a request from the Financial

Aids Officer that $10,000 be provided to the United

Student Aids Loan Fund Program to be matched on a 12 1/2

to 1 basis by Federal funds, estimating that this amount

would carry both Campuses through the balance of this

semester.



Mr. Bilbray asked how these funds are distributed be-

tween the two Campuses. President Miller stated that

the funds are available to any Nevada student, regard-

less of where he attends College.



Chancellor Humphrey stated that a report would be

available to the Board of Regents at a future meeting

detailing a proposal of how the matching money for

this loan program could be funded in the future. He

recommended that for the balance of this semester,

the $10,000 be provided by a transfer to the loan

program from the following accounts:



Garvey Rhodes (1-61-5006) $5000

Goodfellow (1-61-5008) 5000



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

without dissent that the transfer be approved as

recommended.



C. Chancellor Humphrey referred to the Board's earlier

action in creating the Wildlands Research Coordination

Board, adding that a minimum budget of $940 would be

required for the present academic year for in-state

travel for its members. He recommended that this

amount be provided from the Board of Regents Special

Projects Fund (1-51-4056).



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

without dissent that the transfer be approved as

recommended.



7. Item #7 not used.



8. Name Change for College of Agriculture Division



President Miller reviewed the recent study of the Bio-

chemistry Program at the University of Nevada, noting that

one of the recommendations of the consultants was that

the name of the Division of Agricultural Biochemistry and

Pest Control be changed to the Division of Biochemistry.

He requested approval of the name change.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the name change be approved as pro-

posed.



9. Plant and Property, UN



A. Mr. Pine reported that the University has been approach-

ed to purchase two pieces of property on North Sierra

and Artemisia Way adjoining Nye Hall. He requested

authority to have the property appraised.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that both pieces of property

are within the highest priority area for acquisition

by the University of Nevada and both he and President

Miller recommended that appraisals be obtained and

the Administration be authorized to negotiate for the

property and a recommendation be presented to the Board

for consideration at the December meeting.



In response to an inquiry concerning the costs of such

appraisals, Mr. Pine stated that it would probably not

exceed $500 for both appraisals.



Mr. Bilbray asked about using the appraisers from the

Washoe County Assessor's Office, stating that they might

be willing to provide this service to the University

without compensation.



Mr. Pine stated that when dealing with the State Plan-

ning Board in acquiring property, which might be the

case here, they require the appraisal to be done by a

licensed appraiser.



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

without dissent that the appraisals be authorized as

requested.



B. Mr. Pine reported that the State Planning Board had

approved an additional fee of $12,145 ($9071 for design

and $3074 for supervision) to Lockard and Casazza, ar-

chitects for the Physical Science Complex, UN.



Chancellor Humphrey noted that this additional fee is

in line with the total construction budget and recom-

mended that the Board concur in the payment.



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

without dissent that the above recommendation be ap-

proved.



C. Mr. Pine submitted a progress report on capital im-

provement projects at the University of Nevada and a

progress report on all University projects under the

supervision of the State Planning Board was submitted

by that agency (both reports on file in the Chancellor's

Office).



10. Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5000, UN



A. Mr. Pine reported that bids had been opened on Septem-

ber 18, 1968 for canned goods to be purchased by the

Dining Commons over the next 6 months, as needed. 3

bids were received with the composite low bids as

follows:



Monarch Institutional Foods $15,745.77

various products over

6 months

Abbott Supply Co. $ 5,315.95

various products over

6 months



Mr. Pine recommended that awards be made to the low

bidders in the amounts shown, adding that payment

will be made from Dining Commons funds.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, car-

ried without dissent that the above bids be accepted

and contracts awarded to Monarch Institutional Foods

and Abbott Supply Co.



B. Mr. Pine reported that bids had been opened October 21,

for collating equipment for Central Office Services,

as follows:



Addressograph-Multigraph $ 8,415.00

Pitney-Bowes, Inc. 9,406.00



He noted that the equipment which had been bid by

Addressograph-Multigraph did not meet the specifica-

tions and recommended that the Pitney-Bowes equipment

would be the most durable and therefore the more

economical purchase.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



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

without dissent that the bid of Pitney-Bowes, Inc. be

accepted and a purchase order issued in the amount of

$9406.



11. Authorization to Purchase Without Competitive Bids



Mr. Pine reported that the Nevada Bureau of Mines antici-

pates the expenditure during 1968-69 of approximately

$16,000 for the purchase of geological maps. The firms

which provide this service are limited because of equip-

ment and the requirement that the maps be printed on the

U. S. Geological Survey's topographic basis.



Mr. Pine noted that it has been the practice in the past

to contact a number of firms to determine possible interest

and to obtain estimates for the printing of such maps. The

firms contacted were:



The Steck Company, Austin, Texas

The National Survey, Chester, Vermont

A. Heon and Co., Baltimore, Maryland

Williams & Heintz, Washington, D. C.

Stark-Rath Printing & Publishing, San Francisco



Mr. Pine recommended that the Nevada Bureau of Mines be

authorized to direct the Purchasing Department to have the

printing of geologic maps done without the necessity of

competitive bids and in a manner most economical to the

Bureau of Mines.



President Miller and Chancellor Humphrey concurred.



Motion by Mr. Seeliger, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried with-

out dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



12. Settlement of Claim of Electronic Systems Personnel Agency



Dr. Baepler reviewed the occurrences leading to receipt of

a claim for $1500 from the Electronics Systems Personnel

Agency. He noted that Dr. Fechter of NSU was asked by the

Administration to help find a Director for the Computer

Center and was a member of the committee for the selection

of a Director. While serving on that committee, he con-

tacted the above agency requesting applications for the

position. Dr. Baepler noted that Dr. Fechter has stated

that he was aware that a fee would be due if one of the

claimant's candidates was selected. The claimant's candi-

date was eventually hired. Dr. Baepler continued by

stating that a bill was presented to Nevada Southern which

former President Moyer and Herman Westfall had refused to

pay. The bill had then been referred to a collection

agency and Dr. Baepler had referred the matter to the

Attorney General's Office, who had recommended that an

attempt be made to settle the claim for 1/2 or $750.



Mr. Walsh stated that the agency had indicated their will-

ingness to settle for $750 and recommended that the Board

approve the settlement.



Chancellor Humphrey and Dr. Baepler concurred but pointed

out that no employee should be able to commit the University

in this way.



Mr. Seeliger asked what could be done to avoid this happen-

ing in the future. Chancellor Humphrey stated that the

policy is generally well understood as to who the contract-

ing officers of the University are but that the precaution

would be taken of issuing a Faculty Bulletin on this.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent that the compromise be accepted and the claim

be settled for $750.



13. Agreement with Atomic Energy Commission



Vice President Baepler reported that NSU had been approached

about the possibility of establishing at NSU an open file

of unclassified documents relating to the AEC's Plowshare

Program for ready reference by the public, including members

of the scientific community and representatives of industry.

He noted that the collection of documents will be sizeable

and that this would be only one of 3 or 4 such depositories

in the country.



Dr. Baepler requested authorization from the Board of

Regents to negotiate a formal contractual relationship

with AEC for the establishment of such a file, noting that

the final document would be subject to Board of Regents

approval.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried with-

out dissent that NSU be authorized to negotiate such a

contract subject to final Board approval.



14. Approval of Purchases in Excess of $5000, NSU



Vice President Baepler reported that bids were opened on

October 22 for the purchase of a duplicator for Central

Office Services, as follows:



Smart Supplies Co. $ 9,350.00

Addressograph-Multigraph Co. 7,550.65

A. B. Dick Co. 5,760.00

American Type Founders Co., Inc. 7,500.00



Dr. Baeper stated that the bid from A. B. Dick Co. did

not meet the specification requirements and recommended

that the bid of American Type Founders Co., Inc. be

accepted in the amount of $7500. Chancellor Humphrey

concurred.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, carried

without dissent that the bid of American Type Founders

Co., Inc. be accepted and a purchase order issued for

$7500.



15. Master of Arts in Teaching of English



President Miller introduced Dr. John Morrison who presented

a proposal to offer a Master of Arts in the Teaching of

English at the University of Nevada, beginning with the

Spring semester 1969.



Dr. Morrison noted the demand for this program and indicated

that it would not require additional staff over the normal

growth requirements of the Department.



President Miller concurred in the above, noting that this

program would simply be a regrouping of courses already

offered and does not call for a series of new courses.



In response to a question by Mr. Grant, Dr. Baepler stated

that this kind of program has not yet been discussed for

NSU.



Motion by Mr. Grant, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the new degree program be approved as proposed.



16. Schedule of Meetings for 1969



Chancellor Humphrey presented a proposed calendar for Board

meetings for 1969, noting that it calls for 11 meetings

during the year and had been adjusted to avoid holidays

and national meetings which might involve staff or Regents.



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

without dissent that the following schedule be adopted

with the Friday meeting to begin in the morning rather

than in the afternoon.



January 10-11 University of Nevada

17. Faculty Salary Schedule for UN and NSU Evening Division and

NSU P-99 Positions



Chancellor Humphrey reviewed the problems concerned with

salaries for faculty teaching in the 2 Evening Divisions

and the P-99 positions at NSU (memo filed with the perma-

nent minutes).



He recommended that the salary rate for these positions be

increased effective Spring semester, 1969, from $175 per

credit to $200 per credit (a 14% increase). He further

recommended that this program be further studied, both as

to equity of salary schedule and ability to finance, and a

recommendation presented to the Board next Spring concern-

ing any further adjustment for Fall, 1969.



Mr. Bilbray asked if this is a move toward eliminating

part-time faculty at NSU. Dr. Baepler said that hopefully

the faculty overloads could be eliminated by next Fall.

He said that he recognized the problem with part-time

faculty and added that the quality of such instructors

must be carefully guarded.



Dr. Driggs commented on the Chancellor's recommendation,

and stated that the position of the UN faculty is that

ultimately salaries for Evening Division and overload teach-

ing should be the same rank for rank as Summer School sal-

aries. He added that this matter has not yet been worked

out between the two Campuses.



Chancellor Humphrey emphasized that this recommended salary

rate increase was only a "stop-gap" measure and the problem

requires further study, both as to equity of salary schedule

and ability to finance.



Motion by Mr. Hug, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried without

dissent that the salary rate be approved as recommended.



18. Scholarship Endowments



Chancellor Humphrey noted that a number of months ago it

was determined that there should be a review of scholar-

ships and that certain policy decisions must be made con-

cerning the distribution of scholarship endowments. He

requested Dr. Robert Mc Queen, UN Scholarships Chairman,

to comment on the report he had prepared and which had been

distributed with the agenda (report filed with permanent

minutes).



Dr. Mc Queen spoke of the 36 endowed scholarships which the

University presently has, noting the extensive amount of

research required to compile the essential data on the

donors because many of the scholarships had been endowed

many years ago.



Mr. Humphrey noted that the report prepared by Mr. Mc Queen

had been reviewed by representives of both UN and NSU and

by the Chancellor's Advisory Cabinet and recommended that

the following policy guidelines be approved for the future

distribution of endowment earnings:



(1) Those scholarship endowments which were established

prior to the opening of Nevada Southern University

(September, 1957) shall remain with the Reno Campus

for use with students in attendance there. The date

the donor signed his will or letter conveying the

funds will fix the time when the donor established

the scholarship.



(2) In any instance where a donor specifically names the

University of Nevada at Reno or Nevada Southern Uni-

versity at Las Vegas, the funds will be earmarked for

the Campus so specified.



(3) Where neither (1) nor (2) above apply, but where a

donor has an obvious sentimental or emotional tie with

one Campus or the other, that Campus shall receive

the award. Such sentimental or emotional ties would

include being an alumnus of the Campus or being closely

related to an alumnus, or having been a resident near

one Campus or where there is clear evidence of a spe-

cial friendship with one Campus.



(4) Where the donor specifies that the scholarships shall

benefit students in an academic specialty represented

at only one Campus at the time the award is establish-

ed, the scholarship will go to that Campus.



(5) When none of the preceding criteria are met, endowed

scholarships shall be divided between the two Campuses

based upon student enrollment at the time of the

award's establishment.



Mr. Bilbray questioned the recommendation in (1) above that

scholarship endowments which were established prior to open-

ing of NSU in 1957 remain with UN, commenting that this was

presuming a donor would not have changed his mind had he

been aware that NSU might exist sometime in the future. Dr.

Mc Queen pointed out that the basic criteria in administer-

ing an endowed scholarship is to follow explicitly the ex-

pressed wishes of the donors and not to presume that he

might have done differently under a separate set of circum-

stances.



Dr. Baepler stated that he had very carefully reviewed the

scholarship report and did not believe that he could logi-

cally take exception to the criteria suggested. He recom-

mended approval of the policy guidelines as submitted.



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

with Mr. Bilbray opposing that the criteria governing the

future distribution of scholarship endowments be approved

as recommended.



Mr. Seeliger commented on the thoroughness of the report

prepared by Dr. Mc Queen and moved that he be officially

commended. Motion was seconded by Mr. Jacobsen and carried

without dissent.



19. Dr. White spoke of her concern over lack of available

scholarships for continuing education of the older woman

and suggested a search by the University for women students

to whom fee waivers or scholarships could be provided, both

at the undergraduate and graduate level.



Dr. Anderson suggested that staff be requested to study the

problem and make a report before further discussion by the

Board.



Motion by Dr. White, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried without

dissent that a study be conducted on the availability of

scholarships for continuing education, particularly for

married women, and that ideas from the faculty be invited

during the course of the study.



The meeting adjourned at 4:10 P.M.



The regular meeting of the Board of Regents reconvened at 9:15

A.M. on Friday, November 8, in the Travis Lounge.

20. Medical School Feasibility Study



President Miller stated that for the past 1 1/2 years the

staff has been in the process of developing a feasibility

study concerning medical education in Nevada. He referred

to the report which had been distributed to the Board,

noting that it has been prepared with the aid of a large

number of consultants from the American Medical Associa-

tion and American Medical Colleges. He stated that the

report deals with specific items about which Regents and

Legislators have raised questions. He commented further

that the proposals contained in the report maximizes on-

going programs of the University, makes them more useful

to the students, maximizes resources and proposes new pro-

grams in medical education which can be done with a minimum

State expenditure. Dr. Miller further noted that Dr. George

Smith, Acting Dean of the proposed Medical School, has been

the chief coordinator for the study and asked that he pre-

sent the report.



Mr. Grant commented on the size of the report and asked if

a condensation might be provided. Dr. Miller noted that it

was the intention of the staff to give the Regents a full

report at this time but agreed that an abstract would be

useful and could be provided.



Dr. Smith commented on the number of people involved in the

development of a Health Sciences Program and noted that the

report was divided into 5 chapters:



I The Changing Nature of Health Care in America



II Survey of Health Manpower in Nevada



III Survey of Possible Programs to Meet Nevada's

Health Manpower Needs



IV Recommended Health Sciences Program



V An Economic Appraisal of Nevada's Ability to

Provide a Health Sciences Program at the

University of Nevada



Assisting Dr. Smith in the presentation of the feasibility

study report were Dr. Norman Baxter, Dean Marjorie Elmore,

Dean James T. Anderson and Dr. Walter Wilson.



Following Dr. Smith's report, Dr. Anderson referred to the

bill introduced at the last Legislative Session calling for

interstate cooperation for regional medical education. He

noted that the bill did not pass but the Regents have re-

viewed the matter and WICHE was contacted concerning such a

proposal. Dr. Anderson requested Dr. Kevin Bunnell to re-

view the action by WICHE in this regard.



Dr. Bunnell talked of a 4-state regional medical school

study done by Dr. James Faulkner a number of years ago

which concluded that none of the states concerned were in

a position to support a medical school. He noted, however,

that in spite of the report, efforts have continued in the

states to provide medical education.



Dr. Bunnell referred to WICHE's efforts to assist where pos-

sible and the subsequent evaluation of what they call the

"Darley Plan". He spoke of WICHE's concern for the future

of medical education and pointed out what are considered

the advantages of the Plan. He noted particularly that

the Darley Plan would allow each state to develop its medi-

cal education program according to its own timetable. Once

two or more states have made a commitment, they would then

be joined by a legal corporation for the organization and

operation of a center which would design a core curriculum.

This corporation would select a Director and staff and

would emphasize the preparation of physicians for family

care. This plan would then proceed to integrate the com-

munity hospitals in this preparation and would develop

highly sophisticated communications systems designed to

take the instructor to the student regardless of his loca-

tion.



Dr. Bunnell stated that before moving forward with this

proposal, they must have funds to build a model and WICHE is

asking through Dr. Anderson if the Board of Regents would

be willing to take action in support of this proposal.



Dr. Anderson noted that the Darley Plan had been presented

to the annual meeting of WICHE in August at which time the

Commissioners had passed a resolution supporting the pro-

posal. Dr. Anderson read the resolution and requested that

the Board of Regents also adopt a resolution expressing

interest in the proposal, pointing out that it constituted

no obligation on the part of the Board of Regents.



Mr. Jacobsen moved that a resolution similar to that

adopted by the WICHE Commissioners be adopted by the

Board of Regents.



Mr. Bilbray suggested that it might be out of order to

express an interest in such a proposal prior to a vote on

the Medical School.



Dr. Anderson pointed out that such action by the Board

would not imply a Medical School.



Mr. Hug commented that it appeared to him to be a very

worthwhile project and seconded the motion.



Mr. Ronzone noted that in adopting such a resolution, the

Board would only be asking for information.



Mr. Bilbray asked if it was the policy of the Board of

Regents to involve itself in every little project.



Mrs. Knudtsen stated that it appeared this project could

be of great benefit to the State of Nevada.



Mr. Jacobsen stated that this, in his opinion, is a most

exciting idea and expressed himself as being strongly in

favor of it.



Mr. Hug stated that he had been distressed by the total

costs of 4-year Medical Schools and that there seemed to

be an over-emphasis on the research side. He suggested

that there must be a better way of educating doctors and

therefore he was strongly in favor of looking into the

Darley Plan.



Motion carried without dissent.



Dr. Faulkner commented briefly to the Board concerning

medical education, agreeing that it is expensive and new

ways of training physicians must be found. He stated that

he supported the Darley Plan.



Dr. Smith summarized the discussion, noting that the pro-

posal submitted was responsive to the requirement that

medical education must be changed. He further noted that

the program proposed would involve education of a team of

Health Sciences personnel, not just the first two years

of a Medical School as originally envisioned when the study

began.



Mr. Bilbray asked if NSU could participate in this kind of

program. Dr. Baepler stated that NSU would probably wish

to place priority on other programs.



President Miller noted that the proposal makes use of

programs already established at UN. He continued by say-

ing that in order to bring the feasibility study to the

Board at this time, there had not been sufficient time for

review by the Academic Council and the Faculty Senate. He

requested that no formal action be taken by the Board of

Regents until the study has been reviewed by appropriate

faculty groups at UN.



Mr. Bilbray suggested that the feasibility study be present-

ed to the State Legislature as soon as possible to allow

sufficient time for review before the session begins. There

was consensus that this was appropriate.



Mr. Humphrey suggested that faculty review of the proposal

take place during November and December, further discussion

by the Board scheduled for the December meeting, and action

requested in January if possible.



Mr. Bilbray asked if the feasibility study could be made

available for review by the NSU faculty.



Dr. Baepler suggested that this would be appropriate only

if the proposal had Systemwide implications.



President Miller responded by noting that the program under

discussion was a proposal for the University of Nevada and

he would not consider it proper to propose a program for

NSU. He added that there is a potential for Systemwide

application if NSU chooses to participate.



Mr. Bilbray suggested that Dr. Smith give a presentation

to the NSU faculty and where NSU can become involved Dr.

Smith should involve that faculty.



The meeting adjourned for lunch, following which discussion of

the medical education proposal resumed.



Chancellor Humphrey pointed out that, as had been emphasiz-

ed, the proposal under discussion was a proposal from the

UN, and must be reviewed by appropriate faculty groups at

UN. He further noted that one of the major considerations

at the time of reorganization was that academic programs

proposed by one Campus not be submitted to the other Campus

for review -- any review of this program by NSU should be

for information only.



21. Report of the Meeting of the Investment Advisory Committee

of November 7



Mrs. Knudtsen noted that the Investment Advisory Committee

had met the previous day and, lacking a quorum, had suggest-

ed that the following recommendations be submitted directly

to the Board of Regents for action:



(1) That 625 shares of First Bancorporation stock, valued

at $10 per share, be sold and the proceeds reinvested

in Treasury Bills and held until needed for the Per-

forming Arts Project for which the gift was made.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray,

carried without dissent that the above recommendation

of the Committee be approved by the Board.



(2) That the present 15% of endowment fund portfolio now

in Treasury Bills not be reinvested in stocks at this

time.



Motion by Mrs. Knudtsen, seconded by Mr. Bilbray, car-

ried without dissent that the above recommendation of

the Committee be approved by the Board.



Motion by Mr. Jacobsen, seconded by Mr. Ronzone, carried without

dissent that the following item be added to the agenda:



22. Amendment to Capital Improvement Program Request



Mr. Humphrey recalled at the meeting of October 4-5, the

Board had adopted a capital improvement program request

in the amount of $31 million. He noted that Item #11 was

amended to include a water system for NSU, increasing

that item from $450,000 to $650,000. Since the Board

meeting, Mr. Humphrey stated that a letter had been re-

ceived from State Fire Marshall Richard Bast, as follows:



This office is deeply concerned with the inadequate

water supply available for emergency purposes at

Nevada Southern University. We have proposed a 10"

interconnect main across Campus tying to a 16" main

on Maryland Parkway and a 10" main on Harmon. Addi-

tional in-campus loops were also requested.



Maximum water available on Campus is approximately

575 gallons per minute with the existing system; at

present one well is down for repairs reducing this

supply to 275 gallons per minute. One modern fire

truck is capable of discharging 1000 gallons per

minute. The National Board of Underwriters recommends

availability of 1500 to 3000 GPM fire flow available

for a building of the size found on Campus. At the

recent Carson-Tahoe Hospital fire, eight 2 1/2" fire

lines were in operation, each producing 250 gallons

per minute, total demand being 2000 gallons per min-

ute. Deficiency of the system is clearly recognized.



This interconnection across the Campus for domestic

supply and fire protection has been assigned Priority

No. 11 on the University's integrated priority list.

I am requesting the Regents reconsider this project

and place it in top priority.



Chancellor Humphrey recommended, and President Miller and

Vice President Baepler concurred, that the Board take the

advice of the Fire Marshall and reduce Item #11 by $200,000,

make a separate item of the water main and place it at top

priority. All other items would move down one number.



Motion by Mr. Bilbray, seconded by Mr. Hug, carried without

dissent that the above recommendation be approved.



The meeting adjourned at 1:35 P.M.
