                         Reno, Nevada
                      November 25, 1910

The Regents met at their Office at 1:30 P.M. Friday, November 25,
1910.  Present:  Regents Henderson, Codd, Williams and Sullivan,
and President Stubbs.  Absent:  Regent Sunderland.

The minutes of the meeting held September 24th were read, and,
upon motion, approved.

President Stubbs read his report as follows:

To the Honorable
    The Board of Regents
        University of Nevada

Gentlemen:

I herewith submit my report for the period ending Friday, Novem-
ber 25, 1910.

                        ATTENDANCE

The attendance of students for this term is now complete and is
herewith given:

                University Men        103
                University Women       88
                    Total                   191

                High School Boys       46
                High School Girls      45
                    Total                    91
                    Grand Total             282

This report is gratifying.  191 students in the University, all
upon a 4-year High School basis, is a good attendance.  The Uni-
versity should try by advertising and other means to enroll 400
University students within 5 years from this date.  The attend-
ance in the High School of 91 is also very good and the quality
of the students is excellent.  This makes a grand total for the
semester of 282 students.

                   VISIT OF MR. MACKAY'S FRIENDS

On Sunday, October 30th, the following friends of Mr. Mackay
arrived by special train in Reno at 12:10 and remained until
5:20.  They were Messrs. Otto H. Kahn, Henry R. Winthrop, L. F.
Loree, Frank H. Keech, Eugene Kahn, William Whitehouse, Martin
Erdmann, Alwin W. Keech, and Dr. Joseph Fraenkel.

The importance of the men and the character of their trip will be
shown by the telegrams and letters which I herewith submit:

             MR. MACKAY'S TELEGRAM OF OCTOBER 13, 1910

President Stubbs
University of Nevada
Reno, Nevada

In reference to tentative arrangements to play Olympic Club on
29th, I have friends, very prominent here, who are at present in
the Northwest on an inspection tour and whom I am endeavoring to
have stop over in Reno on the 29th to inspect the University and
see the game.  As they are traveling by special train and their
plans include an inspection of the main parts of the Southern
and Union Pacific Systems, my friends are unable to tell at pres-
ent whether they can so arrange their schedule as to be able to
be in Reno on the 29th.  They are anxious to do so if they can
possibly arrange it and will advise me definitely at a later
date.  I would suggest therefore your going ahead with the pro-
posed match with the Olympic Club as I understand it comes under
your schedule and I will send you a definite answer as soon as
I hear from my party.

                             Clarence H. Mackay

                SECOND TELEGRAM FROM MR. MACKAY

President Stubbs
University, Reno, Nevada

Have just received a telegram from my friends saying that it will
be impossible for them to reach Reno before the afternoon of the
30th as their plans prevent them from so doing.  They are very
much disappointed, but it cannot be helped.  As a matter of fact
they are arranging to come by special train on the 30th for the
express purpose of calling upon you and seeing the University.
They expect to arrive at 3:30 in the afternoon and will be ob-
liged to leave again at 6 o'clock.  Am writing you fully today.

                             Clarence H. Mackay

             LETTER FROM MR. MACKAY OCTOBER 20, 1910

My Dear Mr. Stubbs:

I have been very anxious, as you may have gathered from my recent
telegrams, to have friends of mine, Messrs. Winthrop and Kahn,
who are at present traveling in the West with a party of promi-
nent railroad officials, stop over one day at Reno, inspect the
University and take in a football game, for I felt that, on ac-
count of the prominence of the party, it would be an excellent
thing for the University to draw the attention of people living
in the East to what it is accomplishing.  I wired you, however,
this morning that my friends, on account of the importance of
their trip and the limited time at their disposal, found that it
would be impossible for them to spend a whole day at Reno and
take in a football game, and that the best they could arrange
was to arrive on Sunday afternoon, the 30th, at 3:30, which they
will do by special train, leaving again at 6 in the evening.  I
may say that the arrangement to stop over at Reno for several
hours was decided upon for the express purpose of paying you a
compliment by calling upon you, as my friends had originally
planned to go straight through at night.

For your information I will say that Mr. H. R. Winthrop, who is
a graduate of Yale, is a partner in the firm of Harris, Winthrop,
and Company, and Mr. Otto H. Kahn, of the firm of Kahn, Loeb and
Company, one of the most powerful banking houses in this country.
I might mention that they are the bankers for the Union and
Southern Pacific Companies, and the party's present tour has been
for the purpose of covering the important sections of these sys-
tems.

They had never been West before, and I, of course, was anxious
that they should see something of Nevada, for without Nevada,
what would be meant by the West?  I was particulary sorry that
they could not arrange to be present during a football game, as
I should have liked them to have seen the Nevada boys in full
swing.  Their visit will fall on a Sunday, and I appreciate that
by reason of the day things have to be conducted with rather
more decorum than on other days.  Nevertheless, I would like my
friends to be given a welcome which would be different that is
generally accorded to the ordinary visitor.  Accordingly I pro-
pose the following, subject to your approval.  On the arrival of
their special train on the afternoon of the 30th that you should
be there to meet them, and that you should have three landaus,
as there are six or seven in the party, in waiting to take them
to the University.  You might think it desirable to have several
of the Regents or of the faculty accompany you.  On your arrival
at the University, I would like you to arrange to have the boys
drawn up on the grass Campus opposite the School of Mines, ready
for a military parade, in all of their regalia, etc. (similar to
the photograph you sent me last year).  This is always impres-
sive, and I remember very well the effect that it had on me last
year, seeing the boys march by.  After this is over, the visitors
can be shown through the Mackay School of Mines, and they should
meet Professor Young and his corps of assistants, who, together
with some of the members of the faculty might accompany them
while they are being shown over the grounds, football field,
training quarters, etc., on conclusion of which, if you would
offer them a cup of tea in your hospitable home, it would be a
fitting climax to their visit.  It seems to me that the above
program could be carried out within the allotted time.

I have carefully omitted any reference to everything in the
School of Mines being "spick and span" for I know full well that
you always see that it is kept so.

I think, between ourselves, that it would be appropriate for you,
in your conversation with Messrs. Winthrop and Kahn, to refer
briefly to the days of the Comstock and how it made possible the
Union and Southern Pacific Systems; in fact how it helped to open
out the West and made California known to the world.  You might
also point out that my father, in the statue, is looking in the
direction of Virginia City, from where he started his career many
years ago.  The above are merely suggestions, and you can mention
them if the opportunity presents itself.

One thing more before I close this long letter, and that is that
any expenses attached to the program which I have suggested I
wish to be charged to my account, and a bill rendered me for the
same.

Fully appreciating that you will do everything you can to make
this visit an interesting one for my friends, I am, with cordial
regards,

                             Faithfully yours,

                             Clarence H. Mackay

                      THE RECEPTION

I invited the Regents and the Regents elect to meet the party.
Their train arrived at 12:10.  From that time until 2:30 we took
them for an automobile ride around through the city of Reno and
also gave them a view of the valley adjacent.  At 2:30 o'clock
we arrived at the University, and, together with the faculty and
the young women students, held a review of the Cadet Battalion
on the Mackay Quadrangle.  At the close of this review, Mr. Kahn
made a brief and excellent talk to the students.  After this the
party was conducted through the Chemistry building, through the
Mackay building, visiting the statue of John W. Mackay at two
different times.  They were greatly impressed by the statue and
the beauty of its surroundings.  Then the Mackay Athletic Field,
Training Quarters and Grandstand, Mechanical building, and the
Library.  The Cadet Band gave a concert in front of the Mackay
building from 3:30 to 4.  Then we entertained the party for 40
minutes at my home.

The time was brief and all occupied, and I think the University
made a splendid impression upon the visitors.  The following two
dispatches, one from Mr. Kahn and the other from Mr. Mackay, ex-
press their feeling.

                                            Imlay, Nevada
                                            October 30, 1910

President Dr. Stubbs
University of Nevada,
Reno, Nevada

Permit me to express to you once more our cordial thanks for the
great courtesy and kindness of your reception and to reiterate
how much we enjoyed our visit and how genuinely impressed we
were by the University and by the fine spirit which was evidenced
in everything we saw.  Please also convey our best thanks to Mrs.
Stubbs for her kind hospitality.

                             Otto H. Kahn

                                            October 31, 1910

President Stubbs
University of Nevada
Reno, Nevada

My friends have sent me long messages expressed in enthusiastic
terms of their visit to the University yesterday.  They evident-
ly greatly enjoyed everything they saw and fully appreciated
the cordiality of their visit.  I am exceedingly obliged to you
for the courtesy and attention on this occasion.

                             Clarence H. Mackay

The following letter from me to Mr. Mackay will give the details
of their visit:

                                         Reno, October 31, 1910

My dear Mr. Mackay:

Our visitors have come and gone and I will leave them to convey
the impressions of the University to you when they shall arrive
in New York City.  I am very sure however that this University,
students, faculty and Regents, tried to give them the very best
reception that they could, and I have reason to believe that
they succeeded to your satisfaction.

I read portions of your letter and of your several dispatches
to the students setting forth that these were your friends, and
they were stopping to visit the University because of your in-
vitation and further because of your deep interest in the stu-
dents and faculty of this University, and the response to this
invitation to do our best was met in the sincerest spirit on the
part of everyone connected with this Institution.

The review of the Cadets was simply fine.  The boys never looked
better and never did better on review than yesterday.  The Band
under the leadership of Ellsworth Bennett maintained the high
standard which was set last year.  The young women students and
the faculty cooperated in every way.  The weather was perfect.
It was a day of clear blue sky, of liquid sunshine, of brilliant
colored autumn foliage.  It was a day full of good health, of
joy to be living.

The special train bearing Mr. Otto H. Kahn, Mr. H. R. Winthrop
and party, together with Mr. E. E. Calvin, arrived at 12:10,
nearly 2 1/2 hours ahead of the time arranged for their coming.
I met them at the train along with Regent Codd and two or three
of the Professors and learned from Mr. Kahn that they were ex-
pecting to leave at 3:30 o'clock in order to enable him to meet
an engagement at Salt Lake City on Monday at 9 o'clock.  I res-
pectfully demurred to this arrangement, and, in talking it over
with Mr. Calvin, he asked me what time I would be satisfied to
accept.  My reply was that we would let them go at 5 o'clock
(our time) if agreeable to the party and to the Railroad Company
who had arranged their schedule for the earlier time.  Mr. Kahn
said, "We will split the difference, and will go at 4:30."  On
this account we had to cut out the assembly in the Gymnasium,
but in every other respect we carried out the program in the
letter and they departed from my house at precisely 4:40 and
were on the road at 4:50.  This additional time was agreed to by
Mr. Calvin who was at my home.

At 1 o'clock we took the entire party in five automobiles to see
the town and the surrounding country, arriving at the University
at about 2:30.  Quite a number of the townspeople had gathered on
the side of the Quadrangle at this time.  The review was very at-
tractive and when it was concluded I asked the Cadets, the young
women, and the faculty to gather on the Mackay Quadrangle in
front of the Chemistry building.  I introduced the party in a
body to them and the friends there assembled.  Mr. Kahn accepted
my invitation to speak to the students and he made a delightful
little talk for about 10 minutes, which endeared him very much
to the students.  After this the Band gave a concert in front of
the Mackay Mining building and under the guidance of Superinten-
dent Brown and the Professors in each building the party visited
first, the Chemistry building, then the Mackay Mining building
for about half an hour.  They were much impressed with the statue
and returned to it the second time, looking upon the features and
form of your father as reproduced by Mr. Borglum.  I spoke to
them about the position of the statue looking out toward the
Virginia City hills, and of the value of the mining operations in
Virginia City to this country during the crucial times of the
Civil War, and what great influence the wealth of the Virginia
City mines had in the building of the Central and Union Pacific
Railroads.

They then visited the Athletic Field, Grandstand, and Training
Quarters.  They were much pleased with the beauty and fitness of
the Training Quarters for the purpose and spoke to the young men
who were showing them through saying that there were very few
Colleges that had the facilities for athletic training that ours
had; that while Yale and some other eastern Universities had
larger athletic fields, there were none of them that had such an
Athletic Field or Training Quarters as the one that had been
given to our students.  Then they visited the Mechanical building
for a few moments under the guidance of Professor Scrugham, and
the Library with Librarian Layman in charge.  This brought them
to 4:05 o'clock and then we went to my house for a cup of tea
and to meet a very few friends who had gathered in.  The Regents
and representatives of the Reno banks with their wives were in-
vited to meet the gentlemen, along with Senator and Mrs. New-
lands and Senator and Mrs. Nixon.  The banks were represented
as follows:

    Mr. and Mrs. Harris of the Farmers and Merchants National
        Bank
    Mr. and Mrs. Bender and Mr. and Mrs. Taylor of the Washoe
        County Bank
    Mr. and Mrs. Lee of the Nixon National Bank
    Mr. and Mrs. Scheeline of the Scheeline Banking & Trust
        Company.

Mr. and Mrs. Kilborn and Mr. and Mrs. Morgan, representing the
two daily papers, were also present.  We spent a half hour here
very agreeably and then said our goodbyes.

I am quite sure the tea was of the very best, poured as it was
from the tea set which was given to us by Mr. and Mrs. Mackay.
We felt that it was quite appropriate that the hospitality which
we tried to show them was emphasized by the gracious presence of
Mr. and Mrs. Mackay, though they themselves were absent.

I am sending you by today's mail six copies of a monograph pre-
pared very hastily as a souvenir of their visit.  I am also
sending you copies of the Journal and Gazette.

On next Saturday, Nevada Varsity Team plays the Varsity Team of
California upon their own grounds.  I will send you the result
by wire.  We have arranged for the Barbarians to play on the
Mackay Athletic Field November 19th.  This is in accord with the
arrangement made with you by wire and is designed to take the
place of the promised visit to California to play the Barbarians.
I spoke in Assembly to the effect that the expense to you of
taking the University to California would be between $4000 and
$5000, an amount of money which I thought would be wasteful and
would create a distraction from studies the ill effects of which
we would feel for a long time to come, and that I felt that we
could not permit so great an expenditure where there was to be
no return.  I think that I carried the views of the faculty and
students with me.

Mr. Otto H. Kahn and Mr. Winthrop were with me on the auto ride
and the conversation respecting the University was quite general
and I had a good opportunity to place the aims, ideals and equip-
ment of the University before them.  I was especially well sat-
isfied with Mr. Kahn and Mr. Winthrop, not having had as good an
opportunity to talk with the others.

With the kindest regards from Mrs. Stubbs and myself to Mrs.
Mackay and you, I remain, as ever,

                             Faithfully yours,

                             J. E. Stubbs
                             President

        IMPROVEMENTS AND REPAIRS ON THE MACKAY BUILDING

Some repairs and improvements on the Mackay building have been
made necessary, first by poor work upon the roof when the build-
ing was erected; the work certainly does not seem to have been
done according to contract; second, to make a drain for the
water from the foundation of the Mackay building; and third,
some improvements that were made necessary by reason of the
slight injury to the walls of the Museum, the Library and Pro-
fessor Young's office.  We had the Museum walls painted, the
Library walls painted, Professor Young's office walls painted,
and the floors, which are of maple, all waxed.  I think without
question the floors should be treated with wax in about 3 months
from this time, and then thereafter regularly every 6 months.

                 CLOSING OF THE BIENNIAL TERM

I am presenting to you today the payrolls and claims of the State
Funds to December 31, 1910.  There is no deficiency.  We have had
to skate on pretty thin ice to bring this about, but it has been
accomplished, and I shall present a clean record to you today.

I have completed, in a preliminary way, my report to this Board
for the two years ending December 31, 1910, and my budget of ex-
penses for the two years ending December 31, 1912.  I have asked
the Governor of the State, the Regents elect, and the Governor
elect, with his private secretary, to meet with the Regents at
4 o'clock this afternoon to consider my report.  We adopted a
policy similar to this two years ago, inviting the Governor and
the Regents to meet with us early in the year.

                   MY TRIP THROUGH THE STATE

Leaving here on December 5th, the President expects to go to
Panaca, Pioche, Caliente and Las Vegas.  This trip is but one
of several which the President expects to take during this school
year, presenting the interest of the University and educational
matters of importance to the State.

                          TRIP TO PUEBLO

According to the request of the Regents, I left here on the night
of the 24th of September and did all that I could to bring the
Irrigation Congress to Reno.  I joined Colonel Maxson in Pueblo
and worked very hard to bring the next Congress here, but I now
think the plans were already made to carry the Irrigation Con-
gress to Chicago next year.  My expenses for that trip were
$148.65, which I wish the Regents would approve from the "Presi-
dent, University of Nevada Account".

                       AROUND THE QUADRANGLE

I beg leave to call to your attention the ideal picture made by
the architects Mc Kim, Mead and White to the position of the
buildings around the Quadrangle.  Whatever buildings are required
should be placed according to this plan.

                  TRIP TO NEW YORK AND WASHINGTON

I would suggest to the Board of Regents to give the President a
leave of absence from the 1st of January to the 15th of Febru-
ary, the object of this trip is in the interests of our Library
and Administration building and the Carnegie retiring allowances
in New York, and in Washington to get the War Department to make
an exception in the case of the University of Nevada with regard
to the detail of an Officer.  You will remember that I called
your attention to the fact that the War Department had recently
changed the number of men from 100 to 150, upon which to grant
the detail of an Officer.  I think that the importance of this
question justifies my taking it up in person with the War Depart-
ment, backed up by a request from the Board of Regents.

                VISIT OF DR. GEORGE R. PARKIN

On November 9, 1910, Dr. George R. Parkin, of the Rhodes Scholar-
ship of Oxford University, paid a visit to the University of Ne-
vada.  He addressed the Assembly at 11 o'clock and the faculty at
4:30 P.M.  The object of his visit was to create interest in the
Rhodes Scholarships.  He said that this State, along with several
others, was not having as much competition for these scholar-
ships as he would like to see, and that it was in his mind to
present to the Trustees the plan of withdrawing temporarily one
of the scholarships and throwing that one open to the students
at large.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                             J. E. Stubbs
                             President

Upon motion of Regent Henderson, seconded by Regent Williams,
the expenses incurred by Dr. Stubbs in attending the Irrigation
Congress at Pueblo, amounting to $148.65, were approved, to be
paid from the Contingent, University of Nevada Account.

Regent Williams moved that President Stubbs visit the southern
and eastern part of the State in December.  Motion approved.

Upon motion of Regent Henderson, seconded by Regent Williams,
President Stubbs was given a leave of absence from January 1 to
February 15 to visit Washington and New York City for the pur-
pose of taking the matter up with the War Department relative
to the number of students and other important matters in New
York City relating to the University.

Upon motion of Regent Henderson, seconded by Regent Williams,
President Stubbs was authorized to have 2000 copies of his
address read before the Teachers Institute at Goldfield in No-
vember printed for distribution.

Upon motion of Regent Williams, seconded by Regent Henderson, the
report of the President for the two years ending December 31,
1910, as submitted to the Board, was approved.

Upon motion of Regent Henderson, seconded by Regent Williams,
the Regents adopted the following resolution, and instructed
the President to forward a copy of it to Mr. Mackay:

    RESOLVED, that the Regents of the University of Nevada desire
    to express to Mr. Clarence H. Mackay their appreciation of
    the visit of his friends to the University on the afternoon
    of Sunday, October 30, 1910.

    The visit of such men as Mr. Otto H. Kahn, Mr. Henry R.
    Winthrop, Mr. L. F. Loree, Mr. Frank H. Keech, Mr. Eugene
    Kahn, Mr. William Whitehouse, Mr. Martin Erdmann, Mr. Alwin
    W. Keech, and Dr. Joseph Fraenkel, distinguished in financial
    and social circles, is bound to have a marked influence upon
    the University and to extend a knowledge throughout the State
    of New York and the country at large of what the University
    is doing.

                         /s/ A. A. Codd, Chairman Pro Tem
                             Charles B. Henderson
                             Frank Williams
                             John J. Sullivan
                             The Board of Regents

    Attest:  George H. Taylor
             Secretary

Upon motion of Regent Williams, seconded by Regent Henderson,
the following resolution was adopted:

    RESOLVED, that in view of the fact that the number of Cadets
    in this University will not reach the required number made
    by the War Department recently as a condition of making a
    detail of a Regular Army Officer, the Regents of the Univer-
    sity of Nevada hereby authorize the President to call at the
    War Department and see if the Adjutant General will not au-
    thorize the detail on the former basis of 100 Cadets until
    August, 1915, when they are sure that this University will
    have 150 Cadet students or more.
