                      December 20, 1919

The Board of Regents met in the Office of the President of the
University on Saturday afternoon, December 20th, at 3 o'clock.

Present:  Regents Cheney, Hood, Pratt and North, Vice President
Lewers and Comptroller Gorman.

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Cheney.

Upon motion it was ordered that Claim No. 214, in favor of F. J.
De Longchamps, State Architect, for services as State Architect
on the Teachers Training building for the sum of $2599.11, be
segregated, showing the allowance for salary and the amount which
is for expenses of the State Architect; and it was further re-
solved that the claim for salary of the State Architect, amount-
ing to $1982.16 is allowed, provided that in the opinion of the
Attorney General that claim constitutes a legal charge against
the appropriation made for the Teachers Training building; and it
is further ordered that Claim No. 215 in favor of George A. Cole,
State Controller, for services of the State Architect on Farm
buildings for the sum of $150.55 be laid over for further action.
Vote:

    Judge Cheney         Aye
    Mrs. Hood            Aye
    Mr. Pratt            Aye
    Mr. North            Aye

It is the sense of the members that the Secretary should write
to Judge Curler and express to him the willingness of the other
members of the Board to meet with him at any time he may happen
to be in Reno to go over with him any University matter which
he may wish to bring up and to discuss with him Board action
taken when he was absent.

Vice President Lewers read the following letters from President
Clark to the Board:

    (1)  I make the following recommendations, which I hope may
         be passed upon by your Honorable Board at your meeting
         on December 20th:

         1.  That Assistant Professor C. W. Lantz be advanced
             from a salary rate of $1800 to $2000 per annum,
             to take effect January 1, 1920;

         2.  That instructor Charles L. Brown be advanced from
             a salary rate of $1500 to $1800 per annum, to take
             effect January 1, 1920.

         Both of these recommendations are made in accord with
         a letter of December 11th to me from Professor Frandsen.
         These men are in his Department of Biology.  At the time
         of the general salary advances last Spring, I spoke to
         both these men and stated then that by arrangement with
         Professor Frandsen we would defer recommendation for
         advances to them until January 1, 1920.

         I endorse the last sentence in Professor Frandsen's
         letter:

              Both men are giving efficient service and, in
              my judgment, are deserving of this increase.

         Judge Cheney moved that the recommendation be adopted.
         Vote:

             Judge Cheney         Aye
             Mrs. Hood            Aye
             Mr. Pratt            Aye
             Mr. North            Aye

    (2)  I recommend that the compensation of Miss Margaret
         Hunkin of my office staff be increased from $85 to $90
         per month, beginning January 1, 1920.

         Regent Pratt moved that the recommendation be adopted.
         Vote:

             Judge Cheney         Aye
             Mrs. Hood            Aye
             Mr. Pratt            Aye
             Mr. North            Aye

    (3)  I desire to approve the recommendation of Doctor Edward
         Records under date of December 10, 1919 that, beginning
         January 1, 1920, the compensation of Miss Ruth Miller
         of the Departments of Veterinary Control Service and
         the Experiment Station be increased from the present
         figure of $50 to $60 per month.

         This increase is to be taken care of by the funds of
         the Veterinary Control Service and Serum-Vaccine ac-
         count under the immediate direction of Doctor Records
         and Experiment Station funds under the direct control
         of Director Doten, on such plan as Doctor Records and
         Director Doten may deem an equitable division of this
         increase.

         Mrs. Hood moved that the recommendation of the President
         be adopted.  Vote:

             Judge Cheney         Aye
             Mrs. Hood            Aye
             Mr. Pratt            Aye
             Mr. North            Aye

    (4)  I desire to approve the recommendation of Dean Charles
         S. Knight that, beginning January 1, 1920, the salary
         of his Secretary, Miss Leah Regan, be increased to $90
         per month, an increase of $5 per month.

         It was moved that the recommendation be adopted.  Vote:

             Judge Cheney         Aye
             Mrs. Hood            Aye
             Mr. Pratt            Aye
             Mr. North            Aye

Regent Pratt moved that List No. 16, covering Checks Nos. 110 to
117 inclusive, for a total of $22,806.46, and list of State
Claims No. 15 covering Claims Nos. 204 to 220 inclusive, except
Nos. 214 and 215, for a total of $16,027.83, be approved.  Vote:

     Judge Cheney         Aye
     Mrs. Hood            Aye
     Mr. Pratt            Aye
     Mr. North            Aye

Regent North moved that the minutes of the meeting of December
12th be adopted and approved.  Vote:

     Judge Cheney         Aye
     Mrs. Hood            Aye
     Mr. Pratt            Aye
     Mr. North            Aye

Adjourned till further notice.
