The Business Office was instructed to charge the following bills

                          RESOLUTION

    WHEREAS, the Board of Regents of the University of Nevada,
    consisting of Dr. H. E. Reid, Frank Williams, A. A. Codd,
    Charles B. Henderson and J. W. O'Brien, did in their meet-
    ing of July 14, 1911, establish a University Revolving Fund
    of Two Thousand Dollars ($2000); and

    WHEREAS, the same Board of Regents on August 12, 1911, estab-
    listed a Rent and Material Fund, which was to be made up of
    room rent paid by students and stated charges for material
    fees where no rebate is allowed; and

    WHEREAS, on the same date said Board of Regents established
    a Student Guarantee Account to be made up of fees collected
    from students for breakage and guarantee, all three of which
    funds were to be used by the Business Office for the payment
    of such accounts as had been authorized by the Board of
    Regents or because of being without voucher could not be
    collected from the State; and

    WHEREAS, in the meeting of August 30, 1911, the said Board
    of Regents did place in the Revolving Fund One Thousand
    Dollars ($1000); and

    WHEREAS, the University's Contingent Fund and the Univer-
    sity's Cash Revolving Fund are the present designation of
    these funds upon the books of the Business Office; and

    WHEREAS, it has been the custom of successive Boards of Re-
    gents to accept and administer these funds as established,

    THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that following the custom of our
    predecessors in office, we order such accounts as have
    been authorized by the Board of Regents, and such travel-
    ing expense accounts as although authorized by the Board
    of Regents, cannot be filed against the State because no
    detailed vouchers are attached, be paid from any moneys
    available in the funds thus established, no charge to be
    made against the Contingent University Fund except by spe-
    cial authorization of the Board of Regents or the Finance
    Committee of the Board.

The Comptroller submitted a list of accounts with the recom-
mendation that they be paid from the Contingent University Fund.

On motion of Mr. O'Brien, seconded by Dr. Sullivan, the accounts
were ordered spread upon the minutes and paid.  All voted aye.

Motion was made by Mr. O'Brien, seconded by Dr. Sullivan, that

    WHEREAS, Mr. Geo. Cole, State Fire Insurance Commissioner,
    had recommended that the University purchase from the Carson
    City Fire Department a 70-gallon chemical Fire Engine, which
    is offered at a very greatly reduced price,

    THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that we accept the recommendation
    of the Fire Insurance Commissioner and purchase from the
    Carson City Fire Department this chemical engine at a cost
    of $500 and that the Business Office be instructed to make
    a claim against the University State Tax Fund therefor.

All voted aye.

Moved by Mr. O'Brien, seconded by Mr. Codd, that Mr. Ed Hancock,
Foreman of the University Farm, be paid $100 to reimburse him for
the use of his automobile for one year.  All voted aye.

Moved by Dr. Sullivan, seconded by Mr. O'Brien, that Mr. C. H.
Gorman be allowed $250 for assisting in the Business Office.
All voted aye.

Meeting adjourned.
