petition. That through his coaching endeavors he has

brought UNLV football into the ranks of the top Univer-

sities in the country.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Knap's record during his

six years at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas has

resulted in winning football seasons, NCAA Division 2

playoffs, and provided the University with an exemplary

type of football program. His record during his tenure

at UNLV is 47 wins, 19 losses and 2 ties.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the University does hereby

appreciate the efforts and leadership that Tony Knap

has developed during his 18 years of major College

coaching. That by reason of his coaching, the players

who have served under him at UNLV and other Universities

have gone on to become better citizens, and have bene-

fited by his winning ways and clean sportsmanship.

al structure at CCCC by the establishment of the position of

onded by Mr. Mc Bride, carried without dissent.

course instruction for credit by means of PBS broadcasting,

course fees will enable CCCC to support staffing and materi-

als for this course; however, PBS, as a part of its li-

censing requirement, includes a $15 fee for each student en-

rolled. Dr. Eaton requested authorization to establish a

$15 special course fee in addition to the regular course

credit fee for these telecourses provided through the Public

Broadcasting System.

Mr. Mc Bride moved approval of the request. Motion sec-

onded by Mrs. Fong, carried without dissent.

18. UNR Student Union Addition Surplus

In response to the Board's request at the August 28, 1981

meeting, at which the Board approved a proposal to fund

the UNR Marching Band from the surplus in the Student Union

Addition Account, President Crowley submitted the following

proposed uses for the remainder of the surplus:

(1) A minimum of approximately half of the existing balance

should be retained in the account, thus allowing in-

terest income to cover most of the annual costs of debt


(2) The remainder of the existing balance may be expended

on projects of a primarily capital nature following

review by a committee which includes the above repre-

sentatives and approval by the President.

(3) After allowing for the costs of debt service and March-

ing Band operations, the annual income to the account

will be allocated equally to the following categories:

a. Projects directly beneficial to the Student Union.

b. Other projects of benefit to students.

If there are no needed projects under category a., the funds

set aside for that category may, upon recommendation by the

committee, be provided for projects under catagory b. Pro-

posed projects for both categories will be reviewed by the

committee for recommendation to the President. As is the

case with expenditures covered under (2) above, it is in-

tended that these projects be primarily capital projects.

However, in certain circumstances, program needs may be


Examples of projects that could be undertaken include ex-

pansion of the Student Union Snack Bar, expansion of the

Sagebrush offices in the Student Union, remodeling of the

Snack Bar kitchen, remodeling of the proposed Visitor's

Center - which involves use of an old Journalism building

to house the offices of Career Planning and Placement,

School Relations and Information - and parking improvements

around the Campus.

Mr. Mc Bride moved approval. Motion seconded by Mrs. Fong,

carried without dissent.

19. Changes in Leases of Lambertucci and Kapo Mining Claims

President Crowley recalled that in September, 1977 the Uni-

versity entered into a lease with Norman Ebbley and John

Schumacher for the Lambertucci Mining property in Tonopah

and in June, 1978 with Decker Exploration for the Kapo Mine

in Valmy. In both cases the royalty payments to the Uni-

versity were 5% of the net proceeds received from the sale

of materials produced on the properties. Due to the poor

grade ore presently produced by these mines, the Mackay

School of Mines wishes to modify the leases so that the

percentage received by the University would be reduced if

the ore mined is of low grade and would increase if the

grade of ore improves. This would give added incentive to

the persons presently leasing the properties to mine more

low grade ore. Dr. Crowley further explained that the

Lambertucci Mine lease would also be modified to clarify

the term "surface rights" and would grant the University

"exclusive rights" to occupy and the use of a 1500 foot

strip of frontage to the south side of the highway and all

of the ground north of the highway, totalling approximately

170 acres.

Regent Buchanan stated that he had heard rumors that the

University had violated the terms of the Lambertucci Will

in leasing part of the property to the City. General

Counsel Klasic was asked to review the leases to determine

if the University is in violation of the terms of the Will.

Ms. Del Papa moved approval of the requested changes. Mo-

tion seconded by Mr. Ross, carried without dissent.

20. Interim Finance Request, TMCC

President Eardley requested approval to ask the Interim

Finance Committee for authorization to expend an estimated

$90,000 in excess revenue, stating that these funds would

be used for payments to part-time faculty.

Mrs. Fong moved approval of the request. Motion seconded by

Ms. Del Papa, carried without dissent.

21. UNR Foundation Trustees

President Crowley recommended the appointment of the follow-

ing persons to the UNR Foundation as Trustees for 3-year
