                         RESOLUTION

    WHEREAS, Major Hugh Lafayette Applewhite, U. S. A., has
    performed the duties of Commandant and Professorship of
    Military Science and Tactics in this University for some
    four years or more, and

    WHEREAS, Major Applewhite feels that on account of his
    health he must ask to be relieved,

    THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that this Board of Regents express
    to Major Applewhite their high appreciation for the services
    he has rendered this University and State.  That we acknow-
    ledge gratefully his unselfish devotion to the interests of
    the University in all its Departments; his loyalty and help-
    ful attitude toward the building up of all its Departments;
    his unselfish devotion to the State in working out its mili-
    tary problems; and

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be
    mailed to Major Applewhite accompanied with the best wishes
    of this institution for his good health and prosperity.

The bill of Regent A. A. Codd of $250 for traveling expenses
while East interviewing men for the University was ordered paid.
Record vote:  all voted aye.

Moved by Regent Pratt that Professor J. C. Jones be made an al-
lowance of $150 on his traveling expenses to New York to attend
the American Academy for the Advancement of Science meeting.
Record vote:  all voted aye.

Moved by Regent O'Brien, that the resolutions as passed by the
student body in their meeting of October 6, 1916, be spread upon
the minutes.  All voted aye.

    We, the Associated Students of the University of Nevada,
    realizing that the good name of our University is in our
    hands, and that if our conduct is of a nature to bring
    criticism upon us the whole University is injured, do
    hereby resolve:

    1.  That we disapprove of groups of students being seen in
        saloons, resorts and cafes; and of students being seen
        at any time in any place in an intoxicated or partially
        intoxicated condition.

    2.  That we disapprove of smoking about the entrance of
        buildings where dances are being held; believing that
        all smoking at dances should be confined to the Men's
        Dressing Rooms.

    3.  That we consider it essential that the conduct of all
        students and especially of men and women students when
        they are together upon the Campus or upon the streets
        of Reno, should scrupulously conform to the usages of
        good society everywhere, in order to be absolutely above
        criticism.

Moved by Regent Pratt, that the communication of Captain Lowe A.
Mc Clure, asking for permission to install an indoor gallery
range in the basement of Lincoln Hall, the expense to be borne
by the Rifle Club and the Lincoln Hall Association, be referred
to the incoming Board of Regents.

Moved by Mr. Pratt, that the petition of the students about
Professor Russell be received and referred to the incoming Board
of Regents.

President Hendrick stated that the University was buying fuel oil
from Faber and Mc Farland, the successors to the J. I. Allenbach
Oil Co., this firm agreeing to furnish oil at 4 1/2 cents, the
bid of the Reno Pressed Brick Co., being 5 cents, that no con-
tract had been made and that action upon these bids be referred
to the incoming Board of Regents.

The resignation of Miss Kate Bardenwerper, Associate Professor
of Home Economics, was read by President Hendrick, the resigna-
tion to be effective July 1, 1917.  Moved by Regent Codd, that
the resignation be accepted to be effective July 1, 1917, and
that proper resolutions be prepared and presented to the Board
at its next meeting.  Record vote:  all voted aye.

The President read the resignation of Miss Laura de Laguna, as
Professor of Romanic Languages, to take effect July 1, 1917.  On
motion of Regent Pratt, her resignation was accepted to take
effect July 1, 1917, and proper resolutions were ordered prepared
and presented to the next meeting of this Board.  Record vote:

and presented to this Board at its next meeting.

trative Heads of the various Departments, as read by the Chair-

                                            December 7, 1916

    The Honorable Board of Regents
    University of Nevada

    Hon. Chas. B. Henderson, Chairman

    The undersigned administrative Heads of the Colleges, Schools
    and Public Service Divisions of the University of Nevada,
    having earnestly conferred together, very respectfully sub-
    mit for your consideration the following:

    We are of one mind that for its growth, development, service
    and efficiency the University of Nevada is dependent upon the
    same principles as are at the foundation of all great educa-
    tional institutions, namely --

    Cooperation and loyalty within the University and between the
    public and the University, subject at all times to honest,
    temperate and constructive criticism, and

    Continuity of administration and of policies, when once
    initiated, for the time necessary to test their success or
    failure.

    That unless highly consecrated to these principles no educa-
    tional institution can succeed or fully perform the functions
    and services for which it was created.

    Mindful of the trying circumstances under which it has been
    conducted, we hereby take occasion to express our general
    approval and endorsement of the administration of President
    Hendrick, and, further, to register the conviction that if
    permitted the time necessary to test its success, the welfare
    of the University will be conserved in keeping with the
    principles enunciated.
