     Circular Letters and Conference Calls
     M/S Peacock/Barnett: That the following circular letter be confirmed as it appears:
    Circular Letter #14, dated 31, December 1969
    As reported to the Board on 18 December 1969, the Pullman-Moscow Water Resources Committee is recommending employment of the engineering firm of Stevens, Thompson and Runyan, Inc., to evaluate the possible common sources of domestic water for the four cooperating entities. The contract has now been developed and a copy is attached for your information.
    Attention is invited to the fact that this agreement specifically requires the engineers to “consider and correlate all other proposed water supply developments by other cities, towns, development corporations and entities in the Pullman-Moscow area” (Article II-f). This request is further spelled out in the supplemental document identified “Pullman-Moscow Water Resources Committee, Scope of Water Supply Study,….” Dated 12 December 1969, which is referred to on page 3. That document specifically names the Troy Watershed Development Corporation as one group to be contacted. This matter has been discussed by Mr. J.W. Watts, and Representative George Brocke. Representative Brocke has indicated full concurrence with the study plan on this basis.
    Your approval of this agreement, the cost of which will not exceed $9,625 for the University, is requested.

     Report- Guidelines to be Used in Salary Adjustment Considerations
     The Faculty Council on 16 October 1969 adopted guidelines which they wish to have used in future salary adjustment considerations. These are shown in attached Exhibit III for the information of the Regents. A copy of Exhibit III is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.  1/29-30/70  108
     Special Extension Course AEX554
     Approval is requested authorizing the Division of Continuing Education, University of Idaho to collect and administer registration fees for Ag.E.E554, Open Channel Hydraulics to be offered at Boise under partial support of the State Technical Services Act during spring semester 1969-70.
    Explanation: This will be an extension course taught by faculty members commuting from the University of Idaho. The course is possible because of partial support under the State Technical Services Act on a project approved for the University of Idaho. Since the registration fees are the sources of matching money, it will be necessary for the University of Idaho to collect the registration fees and pay travel and salary costs for this course. The University will also pay a $10 per student registration fee to Idaho Continuing Education to cover their costs of registering the students.
    This arrangement had previously been agreed to by the Director of Idaho Continuing Education (Lee Woods) and has concurrence of Dr. David Grover, Director of Operational Programs, Division of Continuing Education, Office of Higher Education.
    M/S Barnett/McCollum: That the above request be approved.
     1/29-30/70  108-109
     Establishment of Separate Departments of Geology and Geography
     In 1952 the Department of Geology name was changed to the Department of Geology and Geography. On 13 November 1969, the departmental staff through Dean Reid, requested that there be created a separate department of geography. Their justification is as follows:
    “The geography staff favors and requests the creation of a separate Department of Geography. The basis for this current request is an outgrowth of five years of planning and a series of events that convince us that the time is now propitious. The initial problem rises from the fact that Geography, Like Anthropology and Psychology, is not easily subject to traditional organizational pigeon-holing. Part of te field lies within the social sciences and part lies within the physical sciences. It also runs the gauntlet from mathematical to behavioral aspects. At the University of Idaho, the awkward cleavage between social and physical sciences has fortunately been avoided by having Geography in the College of Mines, a situation found only at two other universities- Nevada and Penn. State.
    Over the years there have generally been cordial, harmonious and compatible relations in the Geology & Geography Department. For geography, automatic status in the College of Mines will improve (1) professional relations, (2) staff recruitment, and (3) attracting and retaining quality graduate students.
    Initial impressions on the part of potential staff and graduate students develop when they examine the administrative structure. These impressions could be partially offset by departmental autonomy. This was most obvious when interview potential job applicants at national professional meetings. Generally, the applicants who showed interest in Idaho were those with an undergraduate major in geology or those interested in physical geology. In our recent search for a cultural geographer, sever inquiries were quite pointed in questioning whether a cultural geographer would have a parity status. The problem extends to graduate student as most undergraduate majors come from social science or geography departments in the liberal arts division of state colleges. For a number of years, geography has had defacto autonomy in virtually all decisions affecting curriculum, summer programs, and graduate program yet the outstanding image has been one of combined vigor in the geography staff, free the present department head of a number of administrative chores and permit each staff to concentrate on programs in its respective field. It is assumed that there would still be close relations, and sharing of equipment and space between geology and geography.
    The University of Idaho has the only undergraduate or graduate geography program in the state, 10 full-time and 2 part-time graduate students, 25 undergraduate majors scattered in 3 programs in the College of Mines, Letters and Sciences, and Education and an active faculty who contact over 800 students annually in geography courses.
    Approved by the Department of Geology & Geography, November 13, 1969.
    M/S McCollum/Smith: That effective 1 July 1970 the Department of Geology and Geography be divided into two separate departments to be known as the Department of Geology and the Department of Geography. Both departments will continue to be in the College of Mines.

     Regulations Governing Delinquent Student Board & Room Payments
     The existing policy governing past due room and board charges as shown on page 30 of the current University Catalog is as follows:
    5. A student who fails to make full payment of delinquent room or board charges within seven days of the time payment is due shall be assigned a penalty charge of $10 which is due and payable with the delinquent payment and further if said delinquent payment and penalty has not been fully met within fourteen days after the payment became first due the registration of the student shall be cancelled automatically and without notice.
    The Faculty Council upon recommendation of the Committee on Campus Affairs recommends that the wording of this statement be changed to read as follows:
    5. A student who fails to make full payment of delinquent room or board charges within seven days of the time payment became due shall be assigned a penalty charge of $10 which is due and payable with the delinquent payment, and further, if said delinquent payment and penalty have not been fully met within fourteen days after the payment first became due, the registration of the student is subject to cancellation by the Business Office. Cancellation of registration will not be initiated by the Business Office until the student has been afforded a hearing, not to be scheduled sooner than five days after the notice has been given to the student of such hearing. At the hearing the Business Manager, and Dean of Men or Women (as appropriate), the ASUI attorney general or their designated representatives and the delinquent student and advisors if desired shall be present. In the event satisfactory arrangements are worked out at the hearing to cover the unpaid obligation, no further action will be taken by the University. If no solution is resolved at the hearing, the cancellation of registration shall be recommended to the Business Office. The student may at any time prior to the hearing pay the required delinquent charges and the $10 penalty charge.

     Budget Allocation-Expanded Nutrition Program
     As a result of the Federal Agricultural Appropriation Bill, the Idaho Extension Service has been allocated $138,253 for Expanded Nutrition Educational Programs for the 1969-70 fiscal year. This is approximately the amount included in our original budget. Congress has specified that 25% of these funds must be spent on 4-H Club Nutrition Programs. In addition, we have been allocated the unexpended balance of similar funds as of 30 June 1969 in the amount of $11,238.26.
    It is recommended that two additional full-time professional staff members be assigned to carry out the 4-H club part of this program. Under this proposal the following budget is recommended.
    M/S McCollum/Barnett: That the above budget for operation of the Expanded Nutrition Program for the 1969-70 Fiscal year be approved.
     1/29-30/70  117
     Purchase of Vehicle-Plant Science
     On 30 December 1969, bids were accepted on a 1970 ¾ ton pickup to replace a similar 1965 model in the Department of Plant Sciences. The following net bids (with trade) were received.
    All vehicles meet the specifications. Obvious low bidder is Helbling Bros., International.
    The using department has submitted strong objections to the purchase of an International vehicle and has provided a list of problems they have had in the past with these vehicles. Our policy requires special approval if we purchase other than the low bid on specification.
    M/S Hampton/Kline: That the bid of Helbling Bros., Moscow, for an International in the amount of $1,750 be accepted.
     1/29-30/70  118
     Disposal of 1970 Sheep Experiment Station Wool Clip
     It is estimated that there will be approximately 62,000 pounds of grease wool shorn from the Sheep Experiment Station in May 1970. The planned research use and disposition of this wool is as follows:
    1. About 2,000 pounds of grease wool from specific breeding groups in to be scoured (individual fleeces) at the University of Wyoming in connection with the breeding program (cleaned fleece selection) at Dubois. Resultant scoured wool will be available for sale. Recommendations on sale of this will be provided at a later date.
    2. About 60,000 pounds of graded grease wool not designated for specific research after shearing will be available for sale. It is recommended that we again have the sale of this wool handled by Western Wool and Growers Service Company, 404 West 7th South, Salt Lake City, Utah. In order to take advantage of activity on the wool market in early 1970, it is recommended that we enter into a sales agreement with this firm immediately.
    M/S McCollum/Engelking: That disposal of the 1970 clip of wool from the Sheep Experiment Station be authorized in accordance with the above recommendation.
     1/29-30/70  119
     Nursery School- Child Development Laboratory Fee
     M/S Peacock/Hampton: That effective with the second semester for the 1969-70 academic year that a charge of $25 per semester per child be made for each preschooler attending the nursery school- child development laboratory to cover the cost of expendable supplies used during the period, and that the said fees be deposited in an Agency account in the Business Office to be used only for the purchase or said supplies for this activity.  1/29-30/70  120
     1970 Summer Room & Board Rates
     M/S McCollum/Smith: That the rates for room and board in University residence halls be established for the 1970 summer session.  1/29-30/70  120
     Cooperative Agreement- Water Study
     By Regents action on Board Memorandum No. 14, approval was granted for entering into a contract with Stevens, Thompson and Runyon, Inc., for a study to evaluate possible common sources of domestic water for the cities of Pullman and Moscow and the two universities located there. That agreement has now been signed and the work has begun.
    We are now asked by Washington State University to enter into a further agreement with the other three entities in this program specifying that the City of Pullman will have primary responsibility for administration of the above contract and that payments will be channeled through the City of Pullman. This agreement is made necessary by the State of Washington Inter-local Governmental Cooperation Act and has been prepared by the Assistant Attorney General for Washington State University. It has been approved by the City of Pullman, City of Moscow, and the Regents of Washington State University.
    M/S McCollum/Barnett: That approval be given for the University to enter into the Intergovernmental Agreement referred to above as shown in Exhibit VI, and that JW Watts, Business Manager and Bursar, be authorized to sign on behalf of the Regents. A copy of Exhibit VI is on file as a permanent exhibit in the Officer of Higher Education.
    Fallout Shelter Analysis Course- NSPE
    M/S Smith/McCollum: That approval be granted for the Division of Adult Education to conduct a Fallout Shelter Analysis Course, under a contract with the National Society of Professional Engineers, for a period of 15 weeks at a contract price of $1,650. The two credit course (Nuclear Engineering 380) will be given on campus for student sin Engineering and Architecture, primarily those student who are interested in summer employment, gather data for analysis for fallout shelters throughout the western United States.
    Idaho Cherry Commission Agreement
    M/S McCollum/Engelking: That an agreement between the Idaho Cherry Commission and the Regents of the University of Idaho, acting through the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station, under which the Commission will provide $475 to the Department of Plant Sciences for the purpose of purchasing some special trees to be used in mechanical harvesting research, be approved.
     1/29-30/70  121
     Demand of Students to Inspect Financial Records
     Reference: Regents minutes 10/23-24/69, page 180
    By regents action on 24 October 1969, the request of Mr. John Orwick for permission to inspect financial records in the Business Office at the University of Idaho was tabled, pending outcome of litigation.
    On 9 October 1969, Mr. Orwick had filed suit in District Court demanding removal of JW Watts as Bursar of the University of Idaho, plus a penalty of $500, reasonable costs and such other and further relief as the court might find reasonable and proper. The case was scheduled for a hearing before Judge Paul W. Hyatt in Lewiston on 16 January 1970. On 14 January, Mr. Orwick’s attorney presented a motion for dismissal without prejudice. This was granted.
    By letter dated 18 January 1970, addressed to Mr. Michael C. Moore, attorney for John Orwick, University attorney Weldon Schimke indicated that records would be made available to Mr. Orwick (see Exhibit VII). A copy of Exhibit VII is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit. Direction of the Regents is requested. The Regents requested Dr. Hartung to draft a proposal outlining procedures for making records of the University available for inspection.

     Special Gift for Preservation of Taylor Ranch Memorabilia
     From Robert M. Loveland, MD, 6003 Melrose Avenue, Hollywood, California., a check for $500 together with the following letter:
    Gentlemen:
    It has been a rare privilege to enjoy an increasing acquaintance with the work of Dr. Maurice Hornocker. Enthusiasm is apparently contagious and now several of my friends are also impressed with the work of this brilliant young scientist. We are convinced that Dr. Hornocker’s talent goes far beyond wildlife management, and that he will be one of the great ecologists of our time. We are writing because we feel strongly that those who make important contributions to ecological knowledge deserve the gratitude and the support of those who are concerned about the survival of the human race.
    Foremost among those whom we would express appreciate is the Board of Regents, particularly for your wisdom in appreciating the educational value of the Taylor Ranch and for your fortitude in preserving that important facility for the people of Idaho. It appears quite evident that the Taylor Ranch is the key to the wealth of important research which will have its best opportunity for development under the auspices of your great university.
    Thanks are due also to Mr. and Mrs. Jess Taylor for their willingness to make a considerable sacrifice in order that their lovely property might be used in this most appropriate of all ways.
    In addition to our thanks we are enclosing a somewhat more tangible evidence of our support in hopes it may be used to signify the great respect we have for Mr. and Mrs. Taylor, your Board and Dr. Hornocker.
    Mr. and Mrs. Taylor at Taylor Ranch have several most worthwhile pieces of Idaho memorabilia. It would be proper for this material to remain at the ranch. We feel it is possible that Mr. Taylor might make these keepsakes available if he would be assured they would receive adequate care. We would like to propose that the enclosed check be used to provide cases or other protective devices to permit safe display of this material, in consultation, we would suggest, with your university archivists.
    Should there be funds remaining we would hope they might be used for the storage of tapes upon which would be recorded interviews with Mr. Taylor made in order to perpetuate his extensive personal knowledge about the history of the Idaho Primitive Area. We should be happy to provide the tapes and see to the interviews unless perhaps your department of history would be interested in such a project.
    Again, for Dr. Charles Sutcliffe, Dr. Atilio Parise, Mr. James Barnett, Mr. John Swope, Mr. Carleton Byrne, Mr. Ben Wetzel, Mr. Jerrold Russom, Mrs. Loveland and myself, our most sincere thanks to the Board of Regents and to Mr. and Mrs. Taylor for significant aid in the furtherance of Dr. Hornocker’s important studies.=
     1/29-30/70  131
     Cooperative Agreements
     M/S Smith/Barnett: That the following cooperative agreements be approved:
    1. Rental of Wheat Land for Experiments Relating to the Control of Soil Borne Diseases of Wheat by the Agricultural Experiment Station. Each of the Cooperators agrees to leave 5 acres of wheat land and conduct normal cultural practices as with the remainder of the field. The University will bear the cost of experimental treatments, harvest the wheat and compensate the cooperator at the current market price, the sum depending on the area used and the average yield from the untreated control plots. Agreements are with the following farmers: George Bremmer, Berle Theissen, Dale Silflow, Kirk McGreggor, and Lee Heath.
    2. Arrangements between the Regents of the University of Idaho through the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station and Commercial Solvents Corporation for experimental work dealing with the valuation of Baciferm soluble-50 in prevention of enterotoxemia in lambs under which the corporation will provide $1,500 in support of the program.

     Authority for Bank Account- Engineer's Fund
     In connection with the bequest of the late Edward L. Ernsberger to the University for the “Engineer’s Fund”, Mrs. Ernsberger desires that the monthly payments from the purchase of their former home be placed in an account for the University of Idaho in the Bank of California, NA, Martinez, California. To accomplish this the following authorization is desired.
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That the Regents of the University of Idaho establish in its name one or more deposit accounts with the Bank of California, National Association, upon such terms and conditions as may be agreed upon with said bank, and the following named person, and that funds shall be withdrawn from said accounts on checks or orders of this organization signed by the following named person: JW Watts, Business Manager and Bursar, and may be payable to bearer, or to the order of, or for the use and benefit of the signer or signers thereof, and the certification by the secretary of this organization as tot eh signature of said person shall be behalf of, and in the name of this organization, to endorse and deliver to said bank for any purpose and to any amount commercial paper of any kind, negotiable and non-negotiable, executed by others and owned, or held, or payable to this organization, and that all authorization with respect to this account shall remain effective until bank receives written notice of revocation at the office where this account is maintained. Furthermore, Mr. JD McCollum, secretary is authorized to certify that the foregoing resolution has been accepted.
     1/29-30/70  132
     Honoraria in Addition to Salary
     M/S Smith/Engelking: That the following persons be allowed Honoraria as indicated in addition to the salary for (1) consulting services in the Title I Institute for City Officials and (2) Civil Defense Advisory services.  1/29-30/70  133
     Student Fee Charges
     Last year, nationally, average student fees and tuition at state universities increased from $369 to $430 for residents and from $850 to $970 for non-residents. Fees charged residents and tuition charged non-residents at the University of Idaho are now below charges of other institutions with which the university can be compared, as shown below. Charges for three academic quarters are roughly comparable to two semesters.
    Resident fees and non-resident tuition at the University of Idaho should be increased. How much the increases should be and the date the increases should become effective have been discussed extensively at the University of Idaho.
    It is recommended that effective 1 July 1970, students’ fees be increased $14 per semester, from $292 to $320 for a regular school year, and that non-resident tuition be increased $25 per semester, that is, non-resident fees and tuition to be increased from $792 to $870. The Faculty Council and the ASUI E-Board support the Administration in this proposal.
    The proposed increase in non-resident tuition is to help defray increased cost of instruction, and increased student fees will be in recognition of increased costs of supplies and services, for which it has been historically envisioned that students here should pay, as explained in the following paragraphs.
    These are component elements of the present student fee of $146 per semester. Proposed increase, making student fees $160 per semester.
    M/S Kline/Engelking: That beginning 1 July 1970 Student fees at the University of Idaho be increased $14 per semester and that non-resident tuition be increased $25 per semester.
     1/29-30/70  133-134
     Regulations Governing Delinquent Student Board & Room Payments
     It is recommended that the statement of the Faculty Council be adopted, effective immediately with the following understanding: (1) the hearings shall be conducted by the University Manager or his authorized representative; (2) “Satisfactory arrangements” shall be interpreted to be (a) payment of bill, (b) proof by the student that funds are forthcoming and not available to do no fault of the student, (c) application for student loan to cover board and/or room indebtedness.
    M/S Engelking/Barnett: That the above change of policy be approved as amended.
     1/29-30/70  135
     Air Conditioning- Veterinary Research Lab.- Caldwell
     Reference: Regents minutes 18-19 December 1969, page 114
    On 27 January 1970 at 2:00 p.m. bids were received on the project for installation of a new furnace with air conditioning coil, three air conditioning units, humidifier and storm windows in the Veterinary Research Laboratory at the Caldwell Branch Experiment Station. Three bids were received as follows.
    The budgeted estimated cost of this project was $4,630.00
    M/S McCollum/Peacock: That the low bid, including Alternate #1, of Heating Equipment Co., of Caldwell, in the amount of $4,456.00 be accepted and that JW Watts, Business Manager and Bursar, be authorized to sign the covering contract. This is for the heating-cooling system of the Veterinary Research Laboratory at Caldwell.
     1/29-30/70  136
     Hours for Freshmen Women
     M/S McCollum/Deaton: That the policy governing dormitory hours for freshmen women be modified in accordance with Exhibit V as recommended by the Campus Affairs Committee and the Faculty Council. A copy of Exhibit V is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit. Mr. Steele Barnett abstained from voting.  1/29-30/70  138
     Circular Letters and Conference Calls
     M/S McCollum/Peacock: That the following circular letters be confirmed:
    Circular Letter No. 15, Feasibility Study for Proposed Shopping Center
    Although there has been little mentioned of the Shopping Center development since the contract with ED McCarthy was signed on 5 September 1969, the program has been moving.
    Mr. McCarthy has been developing a list of prospective tenants and has advised some of the more promising ones of our contract with him. The engineering firm of Hoffman and Fiske were engaged to survey the site and prepare detailed maps and a property description. On 5 November 1969, a meeting was held with the Moscow Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and others, at which time Mr. McCarthy reviewed the program and answered questions.
    Mr. Keith Riely of the Seattle firm of Shorett and Riely was engaged by Mr. McCarthey to conduct a feasibility study on this project. For your information, a copy of this report is transmitted herewith.
    You will be kept advised concerning this matter.
    Circular Letter No. 16, Forestry, Wildlife and Range Sciences Building Change
    You will recall that in approving the contract with Skyline Construction Company for construction of the Forestry, Wildlife and Range Sciences Building, the Regents agreed to guarantee an added $200,000 of university funds and the Permanent Building Fund Council authorized application of $130,890 form their contingency account. It was further understood that we would have an opportunity to negotiate some change orders that would reduce the cost of construction and that the first $100,000 of such reduction or savings in the 2% contingency would be offset by the decrease in the commitment of the University and that savings beyond that amount would be offset by a reduction in the commitment of the Permanent Building Fund Contingency account.
    The architect has been working with the contractor and has recommended the following reductions in the contract.
    Meanwhile, the faculty and staff in the College of Forestry had submitted a strong case for including in the contract $4,113 for carpeting which was deleted by acceptance of Alternate “C” in the original bid. They have further agreed to fund this added cost form the Forestry Research Overhead Account which is earmarked for activities of the College. These proposed changes, plus the 2% contingency thereon and reduction in architect’s fees, reduce the total project budget to $3,457,579. According to our figures this would reduce the university commitment at this point to $100,000 plus $4,360 for the carpeting and architect’s fees thereon.
    One additional item, the deletion of the concrete bridge from the second floor of the building to Line Street, in the amount of $29,785, was also considered. It is our opinion that this would be unwise and we feel it should remain in the contract. The commissioner of Public works agrees, but has indicated that if it is left in, the cost would be borne by the University in addition to our $100,000. We are presently attempting to convince the Permanent Building Fund Council that it should be left in as a part of the original agreement. A copy of Mr. Watts letter to Commissioner DeShazo is attached for your information.
    Your approval of Change Order 1 reducing the Skyline Construction contract by $88,601 is requested.
     3/12-13/70  145-146
     Northwest Inter-Institutional Council on Study Abroad
     M/S Peacock/Deaton: That approval be given for membership in the Northwest Inter-Institutional Council on Study Abroad for the University of Idaho under the terms of the Memorandum of Agreement attached as Exhibit III. A copy of Exhibit III is on file at the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit. (163)
    4.22 Sale of Sheep Used in Research Studies, Sheep Experiment Station
    M/S McCollum/Engelking: That following sales of sheep used in research studies at the Sheep Experiment Station on the basis indicated be approved: (1) Breeding Traits, (2) Mastitis of Ewes, (3) Enterotoxemia in lambs, and (4) Multiple Birth Selection.
    (1) To be slaughtered at Ogden, Utah- ½ carcass to be sold direct to Swift and Company at market price at time of sale less slaughter costs; ½ carcass shipped to Animal Science Meat Lab, U of I Moscow, salvaged meat to be sold through meat lab to Sheep Experiment Station account.
    (2) To be slaughtered at Ogden, Utah- udders collected by U of I Vet. Science Department- Animals sold directly to Swift and Company at market price at time of sale.
    (3) May be necessary to sell lambs direct to Commercial Solvents Corp, at market price at time of sale for chemical residue analysis at time of sale.
    (4) Triplet ewe lambs, orphans, artificially reared, surplus to Dubois research to be sold direct to University of Wyoming at market price at the time of sale for use in multiple birth selection studies.
    These appear to be the only known instances at this time where special authority is needed for the disposal of animals as an exception to our basic policy of selling on a bid basis.
     3/12-13/70  176
     Disposition of Surplus Commodities- Branch Experiment Stations
     M/S Thatcher/Barnett: That there be established in the Consolidated Investment Trust and Henry F. Gauss Mechanical Engineering Memorial Scholarship Fund. This account has been initiated by a gift from JH Gauss of Louisville, Kentucky, son of the late HF Gauss, who was Professor and Head of Mechanical Engineering. The initial gift of $2,000 is intended to be increased by the donor until is shall reach the sum of $12,000 within three years. Details of the trust agreement are on file in the University Business Office.  3/12-13/70  176-177
     Consul General Foster Forestry Scholarship Program
     Reference: Board minutes 4-5 September 1969, page 180.
    Based on recommendations submitted by the faculty and dean of the College of Forestry and following written approval and concurrence by Mr. Charles F. Pratt and Mr. Frank Pratt, heirs of the late Carol Howe Foster, the following modifications in the selection of Foster Forestry Fellowship recipients is required.
    1. First priority shall be given candidates from the University of Sao Paulo in accordance with the expressed wishes of the donor, Carol Howe Foster.
    2. In the event that no candidate is available from the University of Sao Paulo, the Dean of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Range Sciences shall so certify that at that time he may request authority from the Regents to offer the fellowship to a qualified candidate from any Latin American country. Restriction to graduate of any one university will not keep the scholarship filled because of lack of interest at any one place. Moreover, there are now several forestry schools in Brazil whereas some Latin American countries have no forestry schools at all, and yet have a great need for professional foresters. In Brazil, students are likely to attend forestry schools in their own country. In countries having no forestry schools, a student is not apt to pursue forestry as a career unless a fellowship is available to him.
    3. Candidates may seek either a Bachelor’s or a Master’s degree. Some countries have so few professional foresters that the immediate need is for forestry graduates with a Bachelor’s degree. It is felt that the screening committee at the College of Forestry is in the best position to judge which type of candidate should be awarded the fellowship.
    4. If needed, funds from the scholarship program may be used to pay travel expenses to and from the University of Idaho. We have lost several candidates in the past because they lacked money to get here.
    5. A complete description of the scholarship program shall be sent to appropriate Latin American universities, government agencies, individuals and foundations at least six months before the scholarship is to be filled. Among other things, these descriptions will state specifically that priority will be given candidates from the University of Sao Paulo.
    6. If necessary the total income of the endowment may be used in support of a candidate each year. The account has now grown to the point that income is currently in excess of $2,800 annually.
    7. A committee from his faculty will be named by the Dean of the College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Range Sciences to administer this scholarship, to evaluate candidates and to recommend recipients.
    M/S McCollum/Peacock: That the above procedure for selection of recipients of the Consul General Foster Forestry Scholarship be adopted.

     Alumni Placement Service Fee
     M/S Deaton/Swartley: That approval be given the establishment of a fee of $5 for each alumnus utilizing the services of the Placement Center during a one year period between 1 October and the following 30 September. Each candidate will be given up to five sets of credentials in return for this fee during any activation period. Present charge of $1 per set for each additional set of credentials beyond the first five will remain in force for all candidates.  3/12-13/70  189
     Blake Avenue House- Rental to Alpha Kappa Lambda
     Reference: Board minutes 14-15 December 1967, page 83, Board minutes 7-8 January 1969, page 87
    M/S McCollum/Peacock: That in accordance with the request of Alpha Kappa Lambda, Inc., Blake Avenue House be made available to the Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity for the period of 1 July 1970 to 30 June 1971 at an annual rental rate of $5,250 payable on the first of each month (September through June- July and August excluded). This is an extension of the existing rental agreement which terminates on 30 June 1970.

     Forney and Hays Halls- Rental to Washington State University
     Sometime ago officials at Washington State University contracted Mr. Robert R. Parton, Director of Housing at the University of Idaho, with the request that Forney Hall and Hays Hall be made available for housing WSU students during the 1970-71 academic year. (A portion of Forney Hall was used by them during the first semester of the 1969-70 year.) as we have no apparent demand for these facilities from our own students, authorization is requested to develop an agreement with WSU.
    M/S Deaton/Engelking: That approval be given to contract with Washington State University for their use of Forney Hall and Hays Hall for the purpose of housing Washington State University students during the 1970-71 academic year, and that JW Watts, Bursar be authorized to sign the covering agreement on behalf of the Regents.

     Authorization to Adopt Credit Card Charges for Sales of Tickets to Athletic Events
     The Department of Athletics has requested permission to utilize Bank America and Master Charge Credit Cards in connection with the sale of tickets for athletic events. Numerous requests for this service have been received from purchasers. This system is now in use at a number of universities in the northwest. The only cost to the Department of Athletics will be the standard 3% discount on credit card charges. It is felt that this cost will more than offset the increased ticket sales.
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That authority be granted to use Bank America card and Master Charge services in connection with the sales of tickets to athletic events at the University of Idaho.
     3/12-13/70  190
     Reorientation and Reorganization of the Agricultural Extension Service
     M/S McCollum/Barnett: That the plan for reorientation and reorganization of the Idaho Agricultural Extension Service and the change of the official name to the “Idaho Cooperative Extension Service” as outlined in attached Exhibit V, prepared by Dean JE Kraus, be approved. A copy of Exhibit V is on file in the office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.  3/12-13/70  190
     Travel Policy- Cooperative Extension Personnel
     M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the following amendment be made in travel policy regarding members of the Cooperative Agricultural Extension Staff: “County personnel- Travel out of state limited to 35 miles from the State of Idaho boarder shall be considered out of county travel. Authorization for such travel shall be requested on the regular out of county forms and shall be submitted to the District Extension Agent Supervisor for approval.
    State personnel- Authorization for out of state travel limited to 35 miles from the State of Idaho boarder shall be handled as in-state travel and shall be secured by using the approved itinerary form which is submitted to the Associate Director for approval.”
    The above changes will enable staff and members to visit experiment stations located in Creston, British Columbia, Washington State University, Ontario, Oregon, and Logan, Utah without the necessity of submitting out-of-state travel requests which require requisitions and approval from the Dean and the Business Office. This policy and mileage limitation is consistent with the Extension policy of the State of Washington.
     3/12-13/70  191-192
     Irrigation Water Supply
     The present University domestic water well No. 3 is unable to supply enough water to irrigate the university campus, intro-mural playfield, golf course, Guy Wicks Baseball Field and supply the domestic needs of the University. It is to be noted that domestic wells No. 1 and No. 2 for all practical purposes have gone dry.
    An estimated cost of $95,000 for drilling a new well is included in the 1970-71 budget. Drilling a new well always offers the chance of resulting in an insufficient supply to cover the needs.
    An alternate, at this time, would be to use Moscow City’s sewer effluent as a source of irrigation water. The golf course, Guy Wicks Baseball Field, and intro-mural playfield could be irrigated utilizing the 1,000,000 gallons per day of sewer effluent. The effluent is now being channeled into Paradise Creek.
    The area irrigated no on the golf course is 19 fairways and greens plus lawn area. The golf course covers an area of 154 acres. Approximately one-half is under sprinkler irrigation. The intro-mural playfield and Guy Wicks Baseball field cover an area of approximately 25 acres. All 25 acres are now under sprinkler irrigation.
    To utilize the City sewer effluent would require and 800 gpm pump, electrical controls, constructing 2500 feet of primary power line, laying approximately 8000 feet of 8” diameter transit water pipe, required valving, and disconnections from existing university water supply. The estimated cost for this work is $87,000. The estimated cost of diverting the city sewer effluent is less than the estimated cost of drilling new well. It is recommended that the University of Idaho divert Moscow City sewer effluent in lieu of drilling a new well at this time.
    M/S Barnett/Swartley: That authority be granted for the University to develop plans and specifications to utilize the sewer effluent from the City of Moscow for a source of irrigation water in accordance with the above outline.
    In taking this action, it should be understood that an additional domestic well will be required in the very near future to back up the present domestic water supply for the University. In all probability this will need to be done during the 1971-73 biennium.
     3/12-13/70  192-193
     Development of Recreational Facilities
     M/S Peacock/Engelking: That approval be given for development of the following student recreational facilities as recommended by the University Recreation Committee. Source of funds for these projects is the Student Facilities Fund.  3/12-13/70  193
     Athletics Complex Architect
     Following completion of the feasibility study authorized by the Regents on 19-20 May 1969, the firm of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill submitted for our signature contracts for (1) design of a multi-purpose basketball pavilion, and (2) design of an outdoor football stadium. Unfortunately, the projected budget for the construction of the pavilion exceeds our available funds by more than one-half million dollars. Also, both contracts were based on a fixed fee plus expenses. Acceptance of these contracts, which would allow an out-of-state architect payments in excess of our standard rates for Idaho architects, is not recommended. Furthermore, SOM in conference with us indicated that they did not feel the facility that they envisioned can be built for the money we have available. They have stated that they will furnish us with all work developed to date and that we are free to use this information in any way we wish—including making it available to another architect.
    It is therefore recommended that the proposed contract with SOM be rejected and that the firm of Cline, Smull, Hamill, Shaw, and Associates of Boise be engaged as architects on the Athletics Complex Project.
    M/S Deaton/Swartley: That the architectural firm of Cline, Smull, Hamill, Shaw and Associates be engaged as architects for the proposed Athletics Complex on the basis of the standard fee schedule now being used for public construction in the State of Idaho.
     3/12-13/70  194
     Use of Natural Gas for Heating
     The existing contract for natural gas used in the Central Heating Plant is on an interruptible basis. Gas is used as long as available it is usually not available during the months of November, December, January and February. During that time we burn coal or fuel oil, which results in a substantial amount of air pollution and soot.
    It is recommended that the University enter into a revised contract with the Washington Water Power Company under which we will change to a firm year-around basis of our supply of natural gas. It is estimated that this will cost an additional $6,000-$8,000 in an average year, although such an arrangement during the 1968-69 winter would have added $15,000 to our fuel bill.
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That approval be given for the University to enter into a firm contract with the Washington Water Power Company under which the University will utilize natural gas for the Central Heating Plant on a year-around basis.
     3/12-13/70  196-197
     Consulting Services Policy
     M/S Deaton/Engelking: That the Consulting Services Policy, as approved by the Faculty Council, be approved. The policy is attached as Exhibit VI. A copy of Exhibit VI is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.  3/12-13/70  197
     Circular Letters and Conference Calls
     M/S Deaton/Thatcher: That the following circular letters be confirmed:
    Circular Letter No. 17, Selective Admissions for Out-of-State Students
    The recently passed legislation relating to the definition of “residence” and “non-residence” for purposes of educational fee assessment strongly suggests that as many as 20% of our non-resident students may well be classified as residents when implementation of the law begins. It, therefore, appears desirable that the University broaden slightly its non-resident admissions base in order that we may remain approximately at the Board’s recommended level of 20% out-of-state students. In order to remain at the 20% level we estimate that present admissions requirements will have to be modified to permit us to accept applications from out-of-state applicants ranking in the upper half of their high school graduation class.
    Present regulations (Board minutes, October 1964) requires that out-of-state applicants rank in the upper third of their graduating class in order to receive consideration. Prior to October 1964 Board policy has set the upper 50% as the level required for consideration of out-of-state applicants. It is our understanding that the 1964 regulation was passed primarily because of the severely limited dormitory and classroom space. Since these limitations no longer exist, we believe that the previous regulation should be reinstated.
    It is therefore recommended that the administration be authorized to accept applications from out-of-state students who rank in the upper half of their high school graduation class.
    Circular Letter No. 18, Bid Openings, 19 March 1970
    At 2:00 p.m. on 19 March 1970 bids were received on the following projects; Headhouse-Greenhouse Addition #3, Parma Branch Experiment Station Cover Feed Stalls and New Metal Fencing for Cattle pens at Caldwell Branch Experiment Station, Remodel Livestock Pavilion on University Farm.
    A summary of the bids received, as prepared by George Gagon, Director of the Physical Plant, is attached. Low bids are within the allocated funds for each project.
    It is recommended that the low bid, plus add alternates where applicable, be accepted in each case and that JW Watts, Business Manager and Bursar, be authorized to sign the necessary covering contracts.
    Circular Letter No. 19, Request to secure bids for Family Housing Units
    The number of students attending the University who are married is gradually increasing. We now have a total of 1,460 married students. Of these 172 live in University housing, mostly in three areas: South Hill Homes (25 units), Park Village Apartments (64 units), and Park Village Prefabs (29 units). The prefabs were used buildings when they were acquired by the university about 1948. They are worn out and should be torn down; however, they have not been removed because of the great demand for economical housing for married students.
    Some thought has been given to the possibility of constructing from 100 to 150 new units. It now seems that it would be advantageous, for financial and other reasons, to expedite action to secure some additional married housing units. We have not yet worked out plans for financing 100 to 150 units but be believe that we have sufficient funds available in the student facility account to pay for about fifty units.
    Indications are that if may now be possible to complete suitable unfurnished units at a cost of about $12,000 per unit. Two companies have indicated their willingness to undertake such a project, and it is possible that other companies may also be interested in bidding on the project. We propose that the units be prefabricated, 2-bedroom apartments of about 820 square feet. We think that we might be able to get the units built by this fall. It seems most likely that the new units should be located just ease of the present South Hill Homes development. We are now working up specifications and hope to be able to solicit bids about 1 April 1970.

     4/23-25/70  173
     Part-time Students Credit Hour Fee
     Students who register for seven or more credit hours during a regular term are charged full tees and tuition. Such charges have been continually increased. Students, resident and non-resident, who register for less than seven credit hours are charged $12.50 per credit hour. This charge has not been changed since 1965. The administrative Council of the University has recommended that changes should be increased as indicated below.
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That beginning the fall semester of 1970, fees for students who enroll for less than seven hours shall be $20 per credit hour, and non-resident student who enroll for less than seven credit hours shall be charged an additional $20 per credit hour for tuition. These rates shall also apply to those registering as Auditors or In Absentia. Swartley voted negatively.
     4/23-25/70  182
     Board Rates- University Dining Halls 1970-71
     As Described in the Attached Exhibit No. V, the Residence Halls Office and Business Office have developed a new proposal for board rates for 1970-71. Under the new system, meals are assigned point values and each student living in the dormitory will be given a choice of three meal plans- a 25 point per week plan at $525 per year, a 31 point per week plan at $590 per year or a full-meal plan at $620 per year. Student living off campus may also purchase tickets and eat in the dining halls. The 25 and 31 point tickets will be transferable, while the full-meal plan tickets will not. It is felt that this new program will give students the flexibility in meal arrangements that they have been demanding. The furrent board rates are arrangements that they have been demanding. The current board rates are $545 for a full seven day meal plan and $497 for a five day meal plan.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That board rates in University dining halls be established, effective with the opening of the 1970-71 academic year.

     There has been no adjustments in the rental rates of Family Housing units since 1 September 1967 when they were increased by $2.50 per month for the prefabs and $5.00 per month for South Hill Homes and Park Village apartments. Meanwhile, costs for wages and maintenance supplies have continued to increase. It is now recommended that rental rates be adjusted upward by $5.000 per month on all 125 units effective 1 September 1970.
    M/S Barnett/Deaton: That rentals for Family Housing units be established as follows, effective 1 September 1970.

     4/23-25/70  184
     Faculty Club Employee Arrangement
     For many years the University has provided space for the Faculty Club at a convenient location on campus. This has made available an excellent meeting place where faulty members form the many disciplines can exchange ideas over a cup of coffee or relax during the noon lunch break. The Faculty Club charges a membership fee, most of which has been in support of one half the salary of janitress-maid at the club. The university has been paying the other half of her salary.
    Club membership has not expanded to meet the increase in wages over the years. As a result the club is behind in its payments for the one-half salary. It is recommended that the University assume the full salary of this person, effective 1 January 1970 for the balance of the current fiscal year. During this period the entire matter will be studied and a solution recommended.
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That effective 1 January 1970 through 30 Jun `970, the entire salary of Mrs. Ora Cleone Miller be paid from Physical Plant, Building Janitor Service, Salaries and that the existing arrangement with the Faculty Club be terminated.

     Policy- Inspection of University Records
     Reference: Regents minutes, 10/23-24/69, page 180, 1/29-30/70, page 122
    M/S Deaton/Swartley: That the following policy be adopted with regard to the inspection of University records:
    It is the policy of the Regents of the University of Idaho that the financial and other public records of the bursar and other administrative officials of the University of Idaho shall, at all times during regularly established office hours, be open to inspection by any regularly enrolled student of the University of Idaho or by any citizen of the State of Idaho, subject however, to reasonable regulations by the Bursar and other administrative official having primary responsibility for such records to assure the safety and preservation of the records and to prevent unreasonable disruption of the normal operations of any office at the University of Idaho.
    The financial and other public records of the University of Idaho may not be inspected in such a manner as to unreasonably disrupt the normal operation of any office at the University of Idaho, nor may any such records be removed from the designated place of inspection.
    It is expressly provided, notwithstanding anything contained in this policy statement to the contrary, that none of the following records shall be open to inspection without the prior written consent of the person or persons to whom such records pertain: the personnel records of any member of the faculty of the University of Idaho, the transcript or grades of any student of the University of Idaho, the medical records of any individual as maintained at the Student Health Center, individual records at the Student Counseling Center, or other similar records as may hereafter be determined.
    The following procedures shall be followed by any person or persons who may desire to inspect financial or other public records of the University of Idaho:
    1. Application must be made in writing setting forth (a) the name and address of the person or the names and address of the person who desire to inspect the records, (b) a description of the records sought to be inspected, (c) the inclusive dates that the records cover, and (d) whether each applicant is a regularly enrolled student of the University of Idaho or a citizen of the State of Idaho, or both. Only that person or those persons who make and sign such an application shall be permitted to inspect the records.
    2. The Bursar or other administrative official of the University of Idaho having responsibility for the records shall within ten (10) days after receipt of the application notify the applicants of the time and place where the records set forth in the application will be available for inspection. Such notice may be given orally, or by telephone or by United States mail. Such inspection shall be allowed within fifteen (15) days after the receipt of the application. Notice to one or more of the applicants shall be deemed notice to all applicants.
    3. The person or persons making the inspection shall exercise due and diligent care not to deface the records, and shall not make any mark or erasure on, or in any manner alter or modify any record, and shall not tear, cut, alter, mutilate, or in any manner damage or change any record, and shall exercise every reasonable precaution that the numerical or other order or sequence of receipts, checks, vouchers, ledger cards and other records shall be preserved and maintained; and the person or persons who inspect the records shall agree before any inspection of records to comply with this sub-section3.
    4. The right to inspect University financial and other public records shall not imply that the person or persons inspecting records shall have the right to examine or cross-examine the Bursar or other administrative officials of the University of Idaho or any member of the University staff assigned to assist with or to expedited the inspection of the matters contained in the records or revealed therefrom.
    5. The person or persons inspecting the records shall agree in writing before inspection of the records that any conclusions reached shall, at least five (5) working days before being presented to the student body of the University of Idaho or in the student newspaper or other news media or in any public meeting, be submitted for prior review by the Bursar or other administrative official of the University of Idaho having primary official responsibility for the records under inspection. Such review shall not mean that any official, or other person, shall have the right of control over the content or presentation of any such conclusions, or to interfere with or infringe upon the constitutional right of freedom of speech or assembly of any person. The intent of this sub-section 5 is to avoid, so far as possible without infringement of constitutional rights, the dissemination of misinformation, and in that connection, to give the official and opportunity to present additional information to avoid the dissemination of misinformation.
    The purpose and intent of the procedures set forth in this statement of policy are to provide an adequate time and orderly procedure for officials of the University of Idaho to make records available for inspection without unreasonable disruption of the normal operations of the offices of the University of Idaho and to assure the safety and preservation of the records of the University of Idaho.
    The Bursar or other administrative official having primary official responsibility for record sought to be inspected, and the employees of the offices of such officials, shall extend all reasonable assistance in effectuating and carrying out the policy and procedure set forth in this policy statement.

     M/S McCollum/Barnett: That approval be given for the purchase from Mr. Robert Probasco of the School of Music seventeen rolls of film developed, contact printed at $1 each and 35 prints at 25¢ each, total $25.75. This material was used in the development of a music brochure.  4/23-25/70  189
     Release of Computer Equipment
     Reference: Regents minutes 7-8 September 1967, pages 80-81, 5-6 October 1967, page 64.
    At the time the IBM 360 Model 40 computer was leased, approval was granted for the purchase of the older Model 1620 computer, 407 Accounting Machine and auxiliary equipment by the College of Business and Economics. Cost of this equipment, including interest, paid over a period of 5 years, was to have been $78,788.05. Source of funds for purchase was to have been donations to the College of Business and Economics for this purpose, plus the utilization of some reserves in the Public Utilities Executive Course.
    Contributions to date have been $22,800 and it now appears that the necessary expected contributions are not going to be received. As of 15 April, we are $25,829.33 in arrears on the contract payments. It is therefore recommended that approval be given to the action taken by Vice President Carter on 7 April 1970 advising IBM of our situation and asking them to contribute the equipment to the university. See Exhibit VI.
    M/S Swartley/Barnett: That the request to International Business Machines Corp. for donation of the 1920 computer, 407 Accounting Machine, and auxiliary equipment be approved and that in the event the company does not grant such request that the equipment be returned to them. Further, application of the existing reserve in the PUEC account of $15,000 and the Business Research Overhead account balance of $2,808.75 plus an allocation of budgeted funds to the College of Business in the amount of $7,000.00 all necessary to cover our existing commitment to date on this matter, is authorized.

     Anti-Trust Suit- Plumbing Manufactures
     The university has received an official request from the Idaho Attorney General’s Office for Permission to institute an anti-trust action on behalf of the University against major plumbing fixtures manufactures in the United States. It is alleged that certain violations of the anti-trust laws occurred between 1959 and 1966. The attorney General’s Office will, if authorized, institute this action and seek treble damages for injury inflicted upon the University of Idaho due to a conspiracy to fix prices.
    M/S Barnett/Swartley: That the above proposed action of the part of the Attorney General’s Office be authorized.

     Disposal of the Livingston Relief Map
     On 17 December 1951, the Regents granted approval for the purchase of a relief map of the Western United States that had been constructed by DC Livingston, a former professor in the Idaho School of Mines. The map was purchased from the Livingston estate for $2,500. Following delivery, a case was constructed to protect it and it was for many years on display in the University Library. More recently it has been located in the University museum.
    Due to more pressing needs for space (the map is 6’ x 7’) the Director of the Museum wishes to have it moved out. No other University department is interested in housing it. For that reason, authority is requested to dispose of the map.
    M/S McCollum/Barnett: That approval be given for disposal of the Livingston Relief Map by sale or gift in the following order of priority:
    1. An Idaho institution of higher education
    2. Another Idaho state agency
    3. An Idaho high school
    4. An out-of-state public agency or institution
    If no agency or institution can be located within a reasonable time, the map may be discarded.

     Dining Hall Refunds for Students Participating in the Idaho Peace Fast
     M/S Swartley/Barnett: That the plan to refund for meals voluntarily missed by students on 13, 14, and 15 May 1970 be held.
    Students who eat in University cafeterias pay for their meals in advance. They may be reimbursed for meals missed while on University sponsored field trips or in certain cases of illness.
    Last month a group of students asked that the university reimburse them for some specific meals they planned to miss, indicating that they would like to use this money to support the peace movement. This request was denied on the basis that there were no provisions for doing what was being requested and on the basis that the cost for the meals concerned has already been largely incurred by the University.
    On 10 April 1970, students again requested permission to miss meals on 13, 14, and 15 April for reasons and purposes explained above and on Exhibit XIII which these students submitted. This request was also denied. They then requested that a procedure be worked out for students, who wished to do so, to miss certain meals in May 1970 and get refunds on their board bill for the cost savings to the University, and indicated that, in their opinion, perhaps 200-300 students might wish to participate.
    It was explained to the students that if an arrangement could be worked out to provide refunds for board bills that only partial refunds could be provided. This is because of the fact that about 50% of the income of the cafeterias represent fixed costs which the university cannot avoid on a short-term basis. Only about 45% of cafeteria expense is for raw food and the balance is for other expenses. Also, board rates are computed on the basis that some students will miss meals, particularly breakfast. Presently, student eating in cafeterias pay 50¢ for breakfast, 70¢ for lunch, and $1.05 for dinner, or a total of $2.25 per day for their food.
    The following plan has been developed, which seems agreeable to the students.
    a. Students who eat in University cafeterias who wish to miss lunch and dinner on 13, 14, and 15 May may register their names and meal ticket numbers in the housing office by 4 May. When they do so, they will indicate that the returns for the meals they miss may be donated to one of the four following organizations: the American Friends Service Committee, Vietnam Relief Program, the National Welfare Rights Organization, or the United Farm Workers of America.
    b. After verifying that these individuals did not each meals on the days indicated (names and meal ticket numbers are checked as people enter the cafeteria), the University will refund on the basis of 88¢ per day per student for meals they missed.
    c. The University will not reimburse individual students but will make refund checks payable to the four organizations indicated in paragraph a above.
    M/S Swartley/Barnett: That the above plan to refund for meals voluntarily missed by students on 13, 14, and 15 May 1970, be disapproved.

     Cooperative Agreement- Extension Services, UI, WSU, and USDA
     A memorandum from JE Kraus states: “for some time we have been discussing the possibility of adding an area agent or area specialist to work with the Soil Conservation Service on the Resource Conservation Development District which has its headquarters here in Moscow under the leadership of Mr. Gordon (Whitey) Price. In the past several years the Federal Extension Service has allocated funds to various extension services for the purpose of paying the salary and part of the expenses of an Extension Specialist to work with them in these districts.”
    To accomplish this objective a Memorandum of Agreement has been prepared under which the Federal Extension service will provide $13,500 per year for the salary and travel of an Area Extension Agent and the University will provide $3,000 and clerical assistance plus facilities (office space, equipment, supervisors, and technical assistants) at an estimated value of $5,000. This agent will work with the Idaho-Washington Resource Conservation and Development Project encompassing the counties of Latah, Benewah, and Kootenai in Idaho and a portion of Spokane County in Washington.
    M/S McCollum/Swartley: That the Cooperative Agreement between the Extension Services of the University of Idaho, Washington State University, and the United States Department of Agriculture be approved.

     Room Scholarship Program
     The Office of Student Affairs and the University Executive Committee recommend adoption of the new “Room Scholarship Program” effective with the beginning of the 1970-71 academic year. The resolution is as follows:
    Whereas, there are substantial vacancies in the University halls and it would be advantageous to the University to fill these vacancies, and
    Whereas, there is a large number of well qualified applicants for scholarships who may not elect to come to the University of Idaho without substantial scholarship offer,
    Be it resolved that:
    1. Fifty (50) scholarships valued at $600.00 each be offered to freshmen students entering the University of Idaho the first semester of the 1970-71 school year;
    2. Each of these scholarships to represent a reduction of $150.00 per year for each of four years in the annual room rent charged for a room in University residence halls (this to be applied at a rate of $75.00 each semester at the time payment of room rent);
    3. This room scholarship program to be in continuous operation at the rate of fifty (50) new scholarships each year provided that annual research and review (by April 1 of each year) by the Office of Institutional Research reveals that:
    a. It is highly probable that there will be at least fifty (50) total vacancies in University Residence Halls at the opening of next academic year; and that
    b. This room scholarship program results each year in the enrollment in the University of Idaho of at least 35-40 students who otherwise would not have enrolled.
    4. Both elements of need and high qualifications for academic success will be applied in the selection of recipients of room scholarships, together with the less easily defined criterion that the offer of the $600.00 room scholarship would be instrumental in causing the recipient to elect to enroll in the University of Idaho;
    5. This room scholarship program to be administered by Committee on Awards and Scholarships.
    M/S Peacock/Swartley: That the above program be approved, subject to concurrent approval of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, the agency which holds a substantial amount of dormitory bonds.

     Reference: Board Memorandum No. 18
    Low bidder for the project to Cover Feed Stalls and provide New Metal Fencing for Cattle Pens at the Caldwell Branch Experiment Station, opened 19 March 1970, was Ronald W. Van Auker, Inc., on Caldwell, in the amount of $20,395. Mr. Van Auker now states that his bid included an error and he will not sign the contract. He has submitted a check in the amount of his 5% bid bond ($1,019.75).
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the forfeiture of $1,019.75, representing 5% of the bid on subject project, by RW Auker, Inc., be accepted, that the next lowest bid of Orr Roofing and Construction Company of Boise, in the amount of $22,640, be accepted and that JW Watts, Business Manager and Bursar, be authorized to sign the covering contract.

     Demolition of South Bleachers- Neale Stadium
     The bleachers on the south side of Neale Stadium are beyond practical repair following the fire on 23 November 1969 that destroyed the press box and a portion of the upper section of the stands, it appears that the most practical action at this time is to demolish the entire section.
    M/S McCollum/Swartley: That approval be given to advertise for bids for the demolition of all spectator seating on the south side of Neale Stadium.
     4/23-25/70  198

     4/23-25/70  199
     Veterinary Science Laboratory and Office Building
     The current (1969-71) operating budgets include funds to be applied toward the construction of a new Veterinary Science Laboratory and the Office Building and also funds which were originally intended to be used as a part of the cost of replacement of the old Poultry Science buildings. Funds were requested from the National Institute of Health, HEW, for a matching grant on the Veterinary Building. No funds will be available from this source in either 1969-70 or 1970-71.
    AS we do not have enough funds in the separate budgets to complete either of these projects, it is now recommended that we proceed with the Veterinary Science Building, utilizing all available funds. Architects’ estimated cost of the total project is $218,782 from which we may eliminate equipment in the amount of $12,300, leaving a balance to meet of $206,482.
    Utilizing allocations for the two projects indicated above, there is available in the operating budgets of the College of Agriculture and Agricultural Experiment Stations $178,975. In addition, federal physical facilities funds allocated to Idaho will provide $11,755. The balance of $15,752 is available in the Home Station Reserve.
    M/S Barnett/McCollum: That approval be given to the consolidation of funds presently earmarked for the Veterinary Science Laboratory and Office Building and the replacement of Poultry Science Building, and that all presently earmarked funds, plus an allocation from Home Station Reserve in the amount of $15,752 be approved for the construction. Further, authorization is granted for the bidding of this project with bids to be open on 4 June 1970.

     Remodel Room 215, Agricultural Science Building
     In preparation for the consolidation and realignment of certain departments in the Food Sciences Department, it is necessary to provide additional office space. Room 215 of the Agricultural Sciences Building is being planned for remodeling to accommodate the new Department of Animal Industries. This work should be accomplished by 1 July 1970 when the new program is initiated. Estimated cost of the remodeling and installation of a central dictating recording system is $7,445.
    M/S Deaton/Kline: That approval be given for the remodeling of Room 215, Agricultural Science Building and the procurement and installation of dictating equipment in accordance with plans on file for an estimated cost of $7,445 payable from Home Station Structural and Non-Structural Improvement Projects with the budget to be covered by a transfer from the Agricultural Research Reserve.

     Covenant- Public Use of Perimeter Drive
     In the development of the Golf Course and Perimeter Drive a portion of the Old Pullman Highway, southwest of Neale Stadium, was eliminated and the roadway was connected to the Perimeter Drive on the west side of the campus. This action has caused some concern on the part of the people who live in the area served by that road. It is recommended that we do not dictate this new roadway to the City of Moscow, but that we file with the County Recorder a covenant that the road will be kept open for public use.
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the covenant shown in Exhibit VIII be attached, under which the Regents agree to keep a portion of the Perimeter Drive open for use by the general public, be approved, and that JW Watts, Business Manager and Bursar, be authorized to have his instrument filed as a matter of public record. A copy of Exhibit VIII is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.
     4/23-25/70  203

     M/S McCollum/ Swartley: That the policy on Criteria for Appointment and Promotion for Members of the Cooperative Extension Faculty of the College of Agriculture, as seen in attached Exhibit IX, pages 18 and 19 be approved.  4/23-25/70  204
     Bids  The re-roofing bids were very close and substantially above the original estimate of $2,400. This is apparently due to the height of the building and the difficulty of getting materials to the job. This work must be done to protect the building.
    Renovation of Agricultural Science Lab 225 is also double the established budget figure. Because four of the bids were very close, it appears that they are reasonable and that the increased cost is due to additions made to the initial project as well as some cost increases. The Agricultural Experiment Station administration feels that this work is vital to their reorganization program that is now underway. They also indicated that at this time there is sufficient surplus income in sight during the current fiscal year within the Agricultural Experiment Station budget to make it possible to complete the job.
    M/S Peacock/McCollum: That the low bid of Spokane Roofing Company, Inc., for Re-roofing Hays Hall in the amount of $5,590 be accepted and that the low bid of Commercial Builders for Renovation of Lab 225 in the Agricultural Science Building in the amount of $24,203 be accepted, and that JW Watts, Business Manager and Bursar, be authorized to sign the necessary covering contracts.
     4/23-25/70  204-205
     Change Orders
     Certain architectural and engineering problems in the new Swimming Center have made necessary the re-design of a substantial portion of the mechanical lay-out, resulting in Change Orders G-2 ($5,970), M-2 ($38,013.82), and E-1 ($1,776.83) totaling $45,760.65. A detailed presentation of this situation will be made by Mr. Watts.
    M/S Kline/Swartley: Approved to determine the extent to which insurance is available and to reconsider and renegotiate this for recommendation to the State Board of Education and Board of Regents of the University of Idaho.
     4/23-25/70  205
     Athletic Facilities
     M/S Swartley/McCollum: Approved that priorities for the completion of the athletic facilities at the University of Idaho be as follows:

     Circular Letters and Conference Calls
     M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the following circular letters be confirmed: Mr. Barnett abstained from voting.
    Circular Letter No. 20A, Request for Authority to Accept Bid for Family Housing
    As authorized by circular letter 19, dated March 25, 1970, bids were solicited for fifty units of family housing. Four bids were received as follows.
    The low bid was not responsive, in the opinion of Mr. Lloyd Martinson, the University Attorney, in that (a) the date fixed in the bid for completion of the work was later than the date cited in the specifications as when the work must be completed, and (b) materials were substituted.
    I held a meeting with Mr. Martinson, Dr. Carter, Dean Menard, Mr. Watts and other university personnel, and we concluded that it would be in the University’s best interests to accept the lowest responsive bid, which was the bid submitted by Boise Cascade.
    The amount of that bid is higher than we planned to pay for the project, and we have agreed with Boise Cascade to certain changes which will reduce the cost of the project to $600,472. This amount is to cover the complete development to include such things as streets, landscaping and a sprinkler system for the grass. The amount will not include furniture for the apartments, which may cost about $1,200 to $1,500 per apartment. Our housing people believe that all the units can be rented at about $135 per month, furnished. Renters will pay for their own electricity. We now have about $547,000 of student facilities funds which have been accumulated from student fees, and we are confident that we can borrow the additional amount needed to complete this project.
    The need for this project was discussed during Regents meetings on 24 and 25 April 1970. The project is feasible, and we are confident that, if we can immediately go ahead, we can make significant savings over what the costs will be in the future. I therefore request your approval to accept the bid of Boise Cascade, modified as explained above, and to borrow and expend money to complete this project as explained.
    On advice of attorney, Mr. Steele Barnett abstained from voting on the above item.
    Circular Letter No. 21, Appointment of Acting Dean in Letters & Science
    It is requested that Dean Elmer K. Raunio be appointed Acting Dean of the College of Letters and Science beginning July 1, 1970, and continuing until such time as he may be released through the appointment of a dean, at an annual rate of $20,530 per year of 12 months. Mr. Steele Barnett cast a negative vote.
    Circular Letter No. 22, Appointment of Acting Dean in College of Business and Economics
    It is recommended that Dr. Russell Chrysler be appointed Acting Dean in the College of Business and Economics effective 1 May 1970 and to continue until such time as released through appointment of a dean, at an annual rate of $20,000 per year for 12 months.
    Circular Letter No. 23, Waiver of Out-of-State Tuition for Athletes
    During recent meetings in Boise to develop formula budgeting procedures, it became apparent that Idaho State University and Boise State College currently follow one procedure and the University of Idaho follows another procedure in budgeting for athletics. Namely, ISU and BSC both waive out-of-state tuition for certain athletes and the U of I budgets for and pays such tuition. There is no net difference since at the U of I we und up by the University paying this money to itself and then using the money received to cover other costs. This procedure tends to inflate the state cost of intercollege athletics at the University of Idaho, in comparison with those at ISU and BSC.
    This area has been discussed with Dr. Don Kline and he agrees that to make costs more comparable ant do facilitate formula funding, the University of Idaho, should be permitted to waive out-of-state tuition for athletes. Accordingly, I request that the University of Idaho be permitted to waive out-of-state tuition for deserving athletes to the extent of the Big Sky Athletic Conference scholarship limit.
    Circular Letter No. 24, Request for appointment of Dr. Auttis M. Mullins as Professor of Animal Industries and Head of the Department
    Approval is requested for the appointment, effective August 1, 1970, of Dr. Auttis M. Mullins, as professor of Animal Industries, and Head of the Department of Animal Industries, at an annual rate of $22,800 per year of 12 months. We request approval of moving expenses from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in amount not to exceed $1,500.
    Approval in advance of the Board of Regents meeting is desirable so that the College of Agriculture can make proper communication with Idaho Animal Industry Organizations. An information memo from Dean Kraus is attached.
    Circular Letter No. 25, General Fund Allotments- Third Quarter 1969-71
    The State Budget Office has requested submission of the quarterly allotment requests for the third quarter of the 1969-71 biennium begin 1 July 1970. Your approval of the following requests is recommended.

     Director of Inter-Cultural Programs
     Upon recommendation of Faculty Council, it is recommended that the University establish the post of Director of Inter-Cultural Programs. The purpose of this position would be to encourage and administer programs for inter-cultural contacts by members of the University community. The office would supervise the Northwest Interinstitutional Council on Study Abroad, the Domestic Student Exchange Program, Foreign Student Advisement, programs for the Agency for International Development, faculty and student exchange programs, and such other inter-cultural programs which may be subsequently developed.
    M/S Swartley/Barnett: That the University be authorized to establish the position of Director of Inter-Cultural Programs, subject to subsequent recommendation to the Board of Regents concerning funding, be tabled until next month.
     6/8-9/70  162
     Domestic Student Exchange Program
     Upon recommendation of Faculty Council, it is recommended that the University join the Domestic Student Exchange Program, subject to policies such as those described in the attached Manual enclosed as Exhibit VIII. The purpose of this program is to encourage the exchange of educational experience among students of participating universities, in widely divergent American cultural environments. The program provides, through a network of bilateral agreements between universities, for mutual waiver of out-of-state tuition for participating students.
    M/S Swartley/Barnett: That the University of Idaho be permitted to join the Domestic Student Exchange Program, be tabled until next month.
     6/8-9/70  163

     Registration Fees of NRTS Students
     Since the inception of the NRTS Program in 1954, there has been a charge of $5 per semester for registration of students. In the meantime, administrative costs and travel costs in connection with this program have increased substantially. It is now recommended that the charge be increased to $10 per student per semester, effective with the first semester of the 1970-71 academic year. Mr. WD Miller, Resident Director of the NRTS Program at Idaho Falls, concurs with this recommendation.
    M/S McCollum/Barnett: That the registration fee charged by the University of Idaho to students in the NRTS Education Program be increased to $10 per semester, effective with the first semester of the 1970-71 academic year.
     6/8-9/70  189
     Agreement-Extension Service/Utah-Idaho RC&D Project
     M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That approval be given an agreement between the Idaho Agricultural Extension Service, the Utah Agricultural Extension Service, the Soil Conservation Service and the RC&D Executive Board for a Work Plan Proposal for Education Assistance in the Box Elder-Oneida-Cache Resource Conservation Development Projects. Idaho has not direct budget commitment of this program. However, the County Agent in Oneida County will assist with the program in his area.  6/8-9/70  189
     Memorandum of Agreement- Idaho Department of Reclamation
     M/S Engelking/Thatcher: That a Memorandum of Agreement between the Regents of the University of Idaho through the Engineering Experiment Station and the Idaho Department of Reclamation concerning cooperative study on current irrigation water use practices with the objective of determining seepage losses form distribution systems be approved. The Department of Reclamation will furnish $10,000 in support of this project which is being conducted under the direction of Mr. Charles Brockway at the Twin Falls Water Laboratory.  6/8-9/70  189
     Grant Agreement USDI- Bureau of Mines

     Request to Employ Consultant
     Considerable amount of money are spent to publish the University of Idaho Catalog and other University publications. It is possible that a more effective and perhaps a more economical job can be done with the publications efforts. The University of Idaho has other somewhat related needs, such as the need to design new and accurate signs to replace the obsolete and inaccurate signs now on the campus and the possible need to update letterheads on University stationary. There has been a considerable effort at the University to identify and solve these problems; however, it is the consensus of opinion that the university should employ a specialist to coordinate these efforts. After carefully considering various individuals and possibilities, permission is requested to employ Mr. O. Kern Devin, Jr. of Seattle, Washington to do this job.
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That the request to employ Mr. O. Kern Devin, Jr. at a cost not to exceed $5,500 to evaluate the publications and graphics program at the University of Idaho, and to prepare a coordinated plan for improving these programs, be approved.
     6/8-9/70  191
     Amateur Radio Station- Industrial Education
     Students in the electronics area of the Industrial Education Department have expressed a desire to establish an amateur radio station in the department for use in conjunction with regular course work. Mr. Richard R. Smith, Instructor, feels this is a valuable adjunct to the training being offered and has recommended the establishment of the station. The project has the concurrence of Dean Samuelson with the understanding that there will be no budgeted funds used in supporting it.
    M/S Swartley/Barnett: That authorization be granted with the necessary steps towards licensing an amateur radio station for the use of students in the Industrial Education department.
     6/8-9/70  192
     Requirement for Women to Live on Campus- 1970-71
     M/S Kline/Swartley: That effective immediately, women of Junior status or above shall not be required to live on campus.
    Currently regulations require freshmen men and freshmen, sophomore and junior women to live on campus. The effect of this change is to eliminate such requirements for women of junior standing.
     6/8-9/70  193
     Early Retirement of University Employees
     Under current policy and regulations, a University employee is eligible for retirement from the University at age 64 with 15 year service or at any age with 30 years of service. This “retirement” is separate and distinct from the Idaho State Employee’s Retirement System and entitles the retired person to a continuation of the live insurance program and the major medical insurance program with the same University participation as for the individual actively employed. In addition, by action of the Regents on 23-24 October 1969, an employee who has passed his 55th birthday, having completed 15 or more years of service with the University and who retires and does not accept employment with any other employer, if otherwise eligible, may elect to continue coverage under the major medical insurance program with payment of the full premium for such coverage with not participation by the University.
    It is now proposed that the “retirement” benefits allowance be extended to age 55 with the provision that the age plus years of service total 80. Thus a person at age 55 with 25 years of service could retire as could a person at age 56 with 25 years service, 57 with 23 years service, etc.
    This program has been reviewed by the Faculty-Staff Affairs Committee and the University Executive Committee and is recommended for affirmative action.
    M/S Swartely/Kline: That the University retirement benefits be extended to employees at age 55 or older with the employee’s age plus the full number of years service total at least 80 years. It is understood that this applies to University benefits only (emeritus status, life insurance, health insurance) and in no way affects the Idaho Employee Retirement Program.
     6/8-9/70  193-194
     University of Idaho Foundation
     M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That an authorization be granted to the University Development Office to develop plans for creation of a University of Idaho Foundation. The purpose of which will be to receive gifts on behalf of the institution. Final details for the implementation of the Foundation will be presented to the Regents at the July meeting. See attached Exhibit XI.  6/8-9/70  194
     Provision of Two Vehicles
     Report is made of the fact that two van-type vehicles are being provided for use by the University of Idaho for a six-month period by the General Motors Corporation through the Wally Orvik Chevrolet-Oldsmobile Company of Moscow. There will be no cost to the University to receive these vehicles, except that the university will be required to pay $100 per vehicle for insurance and to return the vehicles in the same conditions as when they were secured, except for fair wear and tear. The University will also be required to pay operating expenses for the vehicles. They will be used in connection with the University’s high school relations program, for alumni and development activities, and to take university displays to the Idaho State Fair and to county fairs.  6/8-9/70  194
     Acceptance of Gift- Theater Seats
     M/S McCollum/Swartley: That a gift of 100 upholstered theater seats (used) from Mr. Milburn Kenworthy and his son, MJ Kenworthy, of Moscow, to be installed in the U hut, be accepted.  6/8-9/70  196
     Increased Charge for Replacement of Student Registration Packets
     As part of the registration procedure at the beginning of each academic period, a packet of some 15 cards is prepared by the Data Processing Center for each student. Occasionally a student will lose this packet, which creates substantial extra work in replacement. The charge for replacement has been $1. This does not cover the replacement cost nor encourage the students to exercise care not to lose the. It is suggested that a $5 charge would be more appropriate.
    M/S Thatcher/Deaton: That the charge for replacement of a registration packet be established at $5, effective 1 July 1970.
     6/8-9/70  196-197
     Processing Fee- Vocational Competence Credit
     The State Department of Vocational Education and the Regents of the University of Idaho have approved the granting of University credit toward baccalaureate degrees to individuals with technical competence in certain vocational areas. It is estimated that about 50 individuals will apply for the award of such credits during the coming fall semester. This program will require additional administrative expense, principally in the Registrar’s office, and it is recommended that a $5 charge be established for processing each petition for such academic credit.
    M/S Barnett/Kline: That to cover the related administrative costs, a charge of $5 per petition be established for applicants for academic credit in vocational competence.
     6/8-9/70  197

    “We submit for your consideration our proposal to conduct an audit of the financial affairs of the University of Idaho for the year ending June 30, 1970.
    Should the Board approve this proposal, it is anticipated that a completed financial report will be made available for our examination by August 31, 1970, in which event the report of our audit would be represented not later than December 1, 1970.
    The total estimated cost of this engagement is $6,000.00 plus travel and subsistence at regularly approved rates for any required travel outside Moscow, Idaho. Since this is an estimated cost, the University would only be billed for actual time spent by our staff on this engagement. If, due to circumstances beyond our control, it should become necessary for us to provide extensive additional services, then the Board would be notified with the reasons therefor stated before proceeding.”
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the proposal to conduct an audit of financial affairs of the University of Idaho for the fiscal year ending 30 June 1970 as submitted by Hayden and Ross, Certified Public Accountants, be approved.

    M/S McCollum/Barnett: That actual moving expenses be authorized for Dr. Richard Hall from Moscow to Caldwell, not to exceed $600.
     6/8-9/70  200
     Forestry Summer Camp Housing
     Since the beginning of the Forestry Summer Camp Program in 1939 at McCall, students have been housed in 16’ x 16’ canvas tents mounted in wooden tent frames with wood floors. Each tent provides sleeping and study space for four men. These frames are exposed to the elements and require constant repair and/or replacement.
    It is proposed that a program be initiated for replacement of these tents and frames with simple wooden structures 16’ x 32’ each of which will provide sleeping and study space for eight men. They will be constructed on concrete slabs and are estimated to cost about $3,000 each. It is planned that we will construct five this year.
    M/S Engelking/Deaton: That approval be given to develop detailed plans and specifications for a series of housing units at the McCall Forestry Summer Camp, giving consideration to prefabs.
     6/8-9/70  202

     6/8-9/70  202-203
     Parking Expansion- Student Union
     Reference: Board minutes 5-6 August 1965, page 42
    By previous regents action, it was agreed that the property east of Deakin Avenue, lying between St. Augustine’s Catholic Center and Narrow Street (across Deakin from the Student Union Building), would be purchased from the Stillinger Trust and developed for parking in three phases. Phase A was completed in the summer of 1967, Phase B (the section between the present lot and the Catholic Center) is scheduled for completion this summer. Estimated cost of development of this parking for 33 cars is $16,300.
    M/S McCollum/Swartley: That approval be given for development of parking on Phase B of the Stillinger property on Deakin Avenue for an estimated cost of $16,200 with authority to call for bids as soon as plans have been developed.
     6/8-9/70  203
     Agricultural Science Building Addition Plans
     Report is made of the fact that the Permanent Building Fund Advisory Council on 12 May 1970 authorized architect C. James Bellamy to proceed with completion of working drawings for the proposed addition to the Agricultural Science Building. In so doing, they indicated that approval to bid this project will be withheld if it appears upon completion of the planning that the existing appropriation is insufficient to allow construction.  6/8-9/70  203
     Lease of Housing to Sigma Chi Fraternity
     M/S Barnett/Swartley: That approval be granted for lease of the property known as the Canterbury Center to the Sigma Chi Fraternity for a period of one year at the rate of $1,800 per year, payable in ten equal installments on the first day of the month, September through June (July and August excluded), with option to renew the lease for one additional year.
    It is understood that this rate is estimated in consideration of the fact that the fraternity will take over the property “as is” and that maintenance, heat, electricity and all other services are to be the responsibility of the fraternity (the University will provide fire insurance on the buildings and on any University owned contents). The fraternity shall agree that the grounds will be maintained in a generally neat and presentable condition and that no more than 10 members will reside there.
     6/8-9/70  204-205
     Extension of Permit No. 91272, Burlington Northern Railway
     M/S Swartley/Barnett: That authority be granted for the University to renew Permit No. 91272, dated 7 June 1962, form the Burlington Northern Railway Company, under which the railway company grants the Regents permission to remove high ground and fill low ground on a portion of its right-of-way adjacent to the campus. This extension will cover the permit from 7 June 1960 to 6 June 1971 at a cost of $10.  6/8-9/70  205
     Bids Cattle Isolation Pens- Veterinary Science Laboratory/Office Building
     On June 4, 1970 bids were received on two projects for the Department of Veterinary Science: Cattle Isolation Pens and a Laboratory-Office Building. A summary of the bids is shown in Exhibit IV attached. These projects are located adjacent to one another. It appears that funds are not available to do both at this time.
    It is recommended that the bids for the Cattle Isolation Pens be rejected.
    The total projected cost of the Laboratory-Office Building of $222,481.89 includes no contingency by does include $3,000 in architect’s fees already paid. A contingency of $2,000 is considered minimal.
    It is recommended that (1) the low bid of Jack Morgan Construction for the Veterinary Science Laboratory-Office Building be accepted; (2) a transfer of $15,000 from the budget for the Cattle Isolation Pens to that of the Laboratory-Office Building to cover the shortage of available funds be approved; (3) that Isolation pens projected be scaled down by one-half and rebid within a revised budget of $28,000.
    M/S McCollum/Barnett: That the above recommendations be approved and that JW Watts, Business Manager and Bursar, be authorized to sign on behalf of the Regents a contract with Jack Morgan Construction Company for the Veterinary Science Laboratory-Office Building in the amount of $207,927.
     6/8-9/70  205-206
     Admissions Criteria for Sons and Daughters of Alumni
     The University of Idaho and most state university have higher academic standards for admission for non-residents than for state residents. Some universities permit the sons and daughters of their alumni who reside out-of-state to be admitted under the same academic standards as used for admitting residents, and it is recommended that this procedure be adopted by the University of Idaho. This will not change requirements for the payment of non-resident tuition.
    M/S Thatcher/McCollum:That the academic admission requirements for non-resident sons and daughters of alumni of the University of Idaho shall be the same as the academic admission requirements for Idaho residents.
     6/8-9/70  207
     Policy on Summer Salaries
     Under existing Board policy, teaching and research staff members employed on the academic year basis (9 months service- may be paid in 10 or 12 installments) receive compensation for summer teaching or research assignments on the basis of 2 1/4% of their academic year’s salary per week of summer employment. i.e., The salary of a normal eight week summer term is 18% of the salary paid for the previous academic year.
    When faculty members receive grants to perform research, the University benefits in various ways. The competence of the faculty is increases, better faculty and students are attracted and the University receives a portion of grant funds to cover overhead costs. The Graduate Council and the Administrative Council (a fee l that adoption of the following policy might stimulate efforts by the faculty to acquire grants (funds to pay for specific research which are not appropriated by the state), and (b) recommend that this policy be adopted.
    Regular 9 month employees, who are employed during the summer months on grant or contract funds in support of specific projects, my receive for such work a salary equal to 1/9 of their salary for the previous academic year for each month of summer employment, unless otherwise restricted by the terms of the grant or contract under which they are working.
    M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That the above salary policy be adopted.
     6/8-9/70  207-208

     Approval of Education Courses at Lewis-Clark Normal School
     M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the following courses as taught at Lewis & Clark Normal School in 1969-70 be approved for transfer of credit to the University of Idaho.  7/26-31/70  160
     Acceptance of Credit from College of St. Gertrude for Spanish 1-2
     M/S McCollum/Peacock: That credit for Spanish 1-2, as taught by the College of St. Gertrude in academic year 1969-70, be accepted for transfer to the University of Idaho.  7/26-31/70 160
     Purchase of IBM Equipment
     In connection with the planning for the growth of computing facilities at both the University of Idaho and Idaho State University, a program of Cooperative action has been developed which provides for the following steps:
    1. Lease by ISU of an IBM Series 360/30 computer for meeting its current needs
    2. Purchase by the University of Idaho of the IBM Series 360/40 currently being leased there
    3. As soon as funds become available, replacement of the 360/40 at the University of Idaho with a leased 360/50 and the transfer of the 360/40 from the University of Idaho to Idaho State University to replace the 360/30.
    The advantages to be gained by this program are briefly as follows:
    1. Orderly and systematic growth of computing facilities at both institutions.
    2. An immediate savings for the University of Idaho of approximately $1,400 per month as a result of the differential between time purchase and lease payment with a further savings to ISU when the 360/40 is transferred to that location.
    The major risk in the proposal lies in the uncertainty of funding being available to meet the overall costs of data processing and computing equipment expansion at both institutions at an early enough point in time to meet the growth needs. The worst possible eventuality would result in the University of Idaho being unable to replace the 360/40 and having the complete the purchase agreement. Such a development, while not to be desired form the standpoint of either the academic and research or the administrative programs, would still result in lower net costs to the state. In any event the total program is, of course, subject to the availability of funds.
    It is therefore requested that the University of Idaho be authorized to enter into a time purchase agreement with the International Business Machines Corporation for the Series 360/40 equipment presently installed on the approximate basis indicated in Exhibit V attached (to be adjusted to reflect the exact date and resulting changes in specific payments and dates) not to exceed the quoted price of $237,848 less appropriate credits.
    M/S McCollum/Swartley: That subject to availability for funds the above program be approved.
     7/26-31/70  168-169
     Purchase of Dormitory Refrigerators
     By regents action, 18 December 1969, approval was granted for leasing small (2 cubic foot) refrigerators to dormitory occupants. These were leased from University Products Corporation of New York City at $26.75 per year and are in turn rented to the Students at $17.50 per semester.
    The program has been very successful. It is now recommended that we purchase the 145 refrigerators now on hand at $56.40 each. This purchase will permit us to immediately lower the rental rate to $15 per semester and offers the possibility of further reduction in future years.
    M/S Deaton/Thatcher: That approval be given for the purchase of 145 student refrigerators from University Products of New York City at $56.40 each.

It is requested that these regulations, which are outlined in Exhibit V111, be adopted at this time in order that they may be posted for the protection of the research-demonstration area. A copy of Exhibit VIII is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.
    M/S Barnett/Thatcher: That the regulations pertaining to the Big Meadow Creek Recreational Area of the University of Idaho Experimental Forest as outlined in Exhibit VIII, be adopted.
     7/26-31/70  182
     Revised Quarterly Purchasing Procedures for Branch Experiment Station
     Purchasing procedures at the Branch Experiment Stations are in all respects consistent with the procedures and practices followed throughout the University. Because the stations do not have immediate access to a central storeroom, such as is maintained on campus, a greater than normal number of quarterly requisitions for purchase of miscellaneous small supplies are required. The number of programs and accounts covering activities at the stations has increases markedly in recent years—resulting in extreme increase in the volume of paper work required to handle these miscellaneous purchases.
    During the past two years, the branch station superintendents and Business Office Staff have been developing a set of procedures which are believed to represent a substantial improvement over the present system, and which are outlined in attached Exhibit VIII. The basic change lies in the fact that the University Purchasing Agent will no longer issue several quarterly orders to the various vendors. Instead, the branch station superintendent will have the responsibility of issuing a “local order” for specific items as they are required.
    M/S Thatcher/Barnett: That the revised quarterly purchasing procedure for the Branch experiment stations as outlined in Exhibit VIII, be approved for adoption effective 1 October 1970. A copy of Exhibit VIII is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent Exhibit.
     7/26-31/70  182
     Cancellation of Rental Charge- Phi Delta Theta Fraternity
     During the period of January 3 through June 2, 1968, from 56 to 48 men of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity lived in the University building now used by the football team and referred to as Vandal Hall. Rent was charged on the basis of $1.05 per man per day and the total rent charge was $7,240.80. As of this time, $5,335.70 of this has been paid and a balance of $1,905.10 is still due.
    The fraternity is unable to pay the balance of the bill and insistence that it do so might very well cause the demise of the chapter, considering its overall financial condition and such facts as the fact that it now has three outstanding mortgages on its present fraternity house.
    The initial $1.05 charge was comparable with charges made for men who lived in university dormitories at the time, however, janitorial and resident hall advisory services were provided by the University of Idaho for residents of the dormitories and these services were not provided to the men of the fraternity. There is thus a basis for reducing the charge. Also, there has been continual disagreement with members of the fraternity about the propriety of the initial charge, their point being that the fraternity should have only been assessed a rate of about 75¢ per man per day.
    In view of all factors, it is recommended that the $1,905.10 remaining balance of the bill be waived. If this is done, the charge per man will have been about 78 3/4¢.
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the outstanding bill of $1,905.10 which the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity owes to the University of Idaho be waived.

     Remodeling Space in Student Union Building
     To accommodate the expanded program of the Associated Students in the Public Relations area and the addition of the photographic dark room, some remodeling in the Student Union Building is necessary. The ASUI Executive Board, by actions on 17 March and 19 May, recommended a transfer from the ASUI General Reserve to cover this work, which is estimated by the Physical Plat at $10,550.
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That approval be given to convert the present Arts and Crafts room in the SUB basement to a Public Relations room; to remodel the Argonaut Offices and install a dark room; to install a door to the TV room and to install a door in the Ballroom storage area at an estimated cost of $10,550, payable from ASUI funds.

     Acquisition on Farm House Fraternity Property
     The Farm House Fraternity owns a large frame house at the corner of Deakin and College Avenues and a small frame dwelling adjacent to thereto on College. These were used to house the fraternity until the fall of 1969 when the group leased from the University Permeal French House at the corner of Blake Avenue and Nez Perce Drive.
    The Fraternity Corporation is interested in purchasing French House and disposing of their old property. Authority is requested to negotiate with them and bring back to the Regents a specific proposal covering these properties. Also requested is authority to have a certified appraisal made on these properties by a member of the Appraisal Institute.
    M/S Thatcher/McCollum: That JW Watts business manager and Bursar, be authorized to have any necessary appraisals made and to negotiate with the Farm House Fraternity for possible purchase of their property and sale of Permeal French House.

     M/S McCollum/Barnett: That the following circular letters be confirmed: #4 Track and Field Facility, #5 Cattle Isolation Pens (Revised)
    Circular Letter #4 dated 8 July 1970- Track and Field Facility
    Reference is made to Board memorandum No. 1- copy attached- concerning the acceptance of a bid for construction of the track and field facility. We are advised that this recommendation was not approved by the Board for two reasons, (1) Approval of the students was not specifically indicated, and (2) the question was raised as to the legality of negotiating a modified price with the low bidder.
    This matter has been check through the Associated Students government. Officers of the ASUI state positively that they favor construction of the track at this time at the cost indicated.
    We are assured by the University attorney that negotiation with the low bidder of the change in price is legal. (The State Department of Public Works apparently also has this authority, as it was done in the case of the Forestry Building.) The mechanics of this involve acceptance of the low bid and the processing of the change order covering the decrease concurrently with the signing of contract.
    With this additional background information, your approval of the acceptance of the low bid of C&S Builders as modified in the amount of $186,145 is requested. Total indicated cost of this project of $229,000 will be charged to the Athletics Facilities Construction Fund and covered by temporary loan from the Athletics Operations account, which must be repaid.
    Circular Letter #5, dated 10 July 1970 Regents Minutes- 9 June 1970
    At the June Regents meeting bids on the Cattle Isolation Pens for the Department of Veterinary Science were rejected as being beyond the available funds and approval was given to the scaling down of the project and rebidding it within a revised budget of $28,000.
    Bids on the revised project were received at 2 p.m. on 7 July. A summary, prepared by George Gagon, Director of Physical Plant, is attached. The low bid plus added alternates of Sceva Steel Buildings, Inc. of Spokane, Washington is well within the revised budget and your approval is requested.

     Sale of Sigma Chi Fraternity House to Pi Kappa Alpha
     The Phi Alpha Psi Corporation, owners of the Sigma Chi Fraternity house, have entered into an agreement to sell the chapter house to the Pi Kappa Alpha Holding Corporation for use of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity chapter on campus. This house is located on Lot No. 2 on Nez Perce Drive, which is University property and leased to the fraternity. Terms of the lease require consent of the Regents to the assignment and sale. As the use of the building will continue to be for housing University students, such consent is recommended.
    Pi Kappa Alpha Holding Corporation on 5 December 1969 entered into an agreement with the Regents to lease lot No. 5 on Nez Perce Drive for the purpose of erecting a new house. At that time they paid a deposit of $250, which they now ask to have refunded.
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That approval be given the assignment of that certain agreement, dated 26 May 1959, wherein the University and the Pi Alpha Psi Corporation are the parties recorded as instrument No. 205138 in Book 12 of Leases and Agreements, page 1 thereof, of the Records of Latah County, State of Idaho, as amended by an amendment of agreement recorded in Book 12 of Leases and Agreements, at Page 172 thereof, Records of Latah County, State of Idaho, to the Pi Kappa Alpha Holding Corporation of the sum of $250 which was deposited by them in connection with the site agreement on Lot No. 5, Nez Perce Drive.
     7/26-31/70  198
     Policy- Operation of Swimming Facility
     Most swimming pools operated by Universities are open to the public at certain times. The pool at the University of Idaho has been too small to permit this and, at present, many people form the Moscow area swim at the pool at Washington State University. The new swimming facility at the University of Idaho is expected to become operational in September 1970. This facility will be of sufficient size to accommodate the needs of the University and to provide some usage by the general public. Detailed schedules, procedures and rules for use of the pool are now being developed, and it appears that the pool may be open to the general public for about 10 hours each week.
    M/S Swartley/Barnet: That the Swimming Facility at the University of Idaho may be opened to the general public at specified times, subject to prior accommodation of University students, faculty and staff programs, with the understanding that a complete policy of operation and a schedule of proposed charges for this service will be developed and submitted to the Regents for final approval at the next meeting. Charges will be established to cover extra operational costs, such as life guards, etc. incurred by reason of the pool’s being made available to the public.

    Upon recommendation of Faculty Council, it is recommended that the University establish the post of Director of Inter-Cultural Programs. The purpose of this position would be to encourage and administer programs for inter-cultural contacts by members of the University community. The office would supervise the Northwest Inter-institutional Council on Study Abroad, the Domestic Student Exchange Program, Foreign Student Achievement, programs for the Agency for International Development, faculty and student exchange programs, and such other inter-cultural programs which may be subsequently developed.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the University of Idaho be authorized to establish the position of Director of Inter-Cultural Programs, subject to subsequent recommendation to the Board of Regent’s concerning funding, be approved.
     7/26-31/70  202
     Domestic Student Exchange Program
     M/S Swartely/Thatcher: Approved to “take off the table” the item of Domestic Student Exchange Program that was “tabled” at the June 8-9, 1970 meeting.
    Upon recommendation of Faculty Council, it is recommended that the University join the Domestic Student Exchange Program, subject to policies such as those described in the attached Manual enclosed as Exhibit VIII. The purpose of this program is to encourage the exchange of educational experience among student of participating universities, in widely divergent American cultural environments. The program provides, through a network of bilateral agreements between universities, for mutual waiver of out-of-state tuition for participating students.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the University of Idaho be permitted to join the Domestic Student Exchange Program, be approved.

     Circular Letters and Conference Calls
     M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That the following circular letters be confirmed:
    Circular Letter No. 6, dated 5, August 1970, concerning Painting-1970, Caldwell Branch Station. At 2 p.m. July 1970, bids were received for painting various buildings at the Caldwell Branch Station. Two bids were received. The tabulation of these bids, as prepared by George Gagon, Director of Physical Plant, is attached.
    We have been advised that Mr. Mark Wickson, an out-of-state bidder, had left a bid at the Caldwell Station. At the instructions clearly specified the bids were opened in Moscow, this bid was not considered.
    It is recommended that the low bid of SPS Painters of Boise in the amount of $2,598 be accepted and that JW Watts, Bursar, be authorized to sign the necessary covering contract.
    Circular Letter No. 7, dated 11 August, 1970, concerning Superconducting magnet system. This is a request to purchase a $22,316 superconducting magnet system from the Westinghouse Electric Corporation for our Department of Physics. The department has this money within its budget.
    On 9 June 1970 the Regent’s approved our request to purchase a similar system for $11,500. However, that system will not be purchased. We determined that the larger expenditure is needed after carefully considering the capabilities and characteristics of equipment which could be secured from various suppliers.
    A part of the justification by the head of the Physics Department for this requested purchase is as follows:
    “Such a system will greatly extend the Physics Department’s capabilities to do new research in the fields of Solid State Physics and Atomic and Molecular Physics. Coupled with existing vacuum equipment it will be possible to obtain even higher magnetic fields than those proposed above plus the ability to produce sample temperatures from one degree absolute and above. In addition the high field homogeneity proposed allows for future applications in K-Band Electron Paramagnetic Resonance and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance; fields in which both Physics and Chemistry are already active.”
     9/8-9/70  95-96
     Sale of Musical Instruments
     M/S McCollum/Deaton: That the request of the School of Music to sell 6 pieces of percussion equipment which is no longer of use to that department to Moscow High School at a price of $100 be approved.  9/8-9/70  128

     Whitman Hall- Rental to Washington State University
     Officials at Washington State University have requested that we provide them with any additional student housing that might be available for the fall semester 1970-71. A recent study of our dormitory room reservations indicates that we can release them the 5th and 6th floors of Willey Residence Hall, known as Whitman Hall, in the Wallace Complex. They have been advised that, subject to Regents approval, they may plan on utilizing this space for 100 women students. This is in addition to space provided for 200 mail students in Forney and Hays Halls as approved by the Regents 12-13 March 1970.
    M/S Deaton/Thatcher: That approval be given to contract with Washington State University for their use of Whitman Hall for the purpose of housing Washington State University students during the 1970-71 academic year, and that JW Watts, Bursar, be authorized to sign the covering agreement on behalf of the Regents.

     Payroll Deduction Authority- Tax Shelter Annuities
     During the past several months four insurance companies have approached the University will with requests that they be permitted to set up for our employee tax sheltered annuity programs utilizing payroll deductions. For the past ten years we have had such a program with the Teachers Insurance Annuity Association of New York, with about 509 staff and faculty enrolled. We have been unable to permit other companies to participate due to physical limitations in our data processing systems for the payroll.
    It now appears that we will be able to accommodate additional payroll deductions within the next few months. Authority is requested to enter into such programs on essentially the same basis as that now being used at Idaho State University.
    M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That approval be given for the adoption of payroll deductions for tax sheltered annuities for University of Idaho employees within such policies and procedures as may be found necessary by limitations imposed by equipment and availability of personnel.

     Agreement- City of Moscow, Police Protection
     The city of Moscow Provides certain police patrols and services to the University, and the University now pays $7,000 per year to the City toward the cost of maintaining one police officer. Additionally, the University employs various security personnel to include night watchmen and campus policemen. City officers are much better qualified and better trained.
    As an interim step to strengthen campus security, it is recommended that two campus officers be released and that arrangements be made with the City of Moscow to pay for two additional police officers. The City would then provide three officers for full-time duty on campus. these officers would police the streets throughout the campus and provide additional security and protection.
    The increased cost to the University this fiscal year for this arrangement will total about $6,319, as explained by Exhibit VI attached. Additionally, it is proposed that the university provide the City of Moscow, one radio-equipped car which is now used by the campus officers to be released.
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the University of Idaho be permitted to contract with the City of Moscow for the payment of three police officers to work full-time at the University and that the university be permitted to provide one radio-equipped sedan for use by these officers. A copy of the Exhibit VI is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

     Policy- Non-Resident Tuition Regulations
     Current regulations and procedures for determining resident/non-resident status of students in Idaho institutions of higher education state:
    “(b) Any student, legal voting age or older, who has continuously resided in the State of Idaho for six (6) months next preceding the opening day of the period of instruction during which he proposes to attend the college of university. Provided, however, that no student shall be deemed to have gained residence while attending any college or university in the State of Idaho.”
    A question of interpretation has arisen concerning this section. Does the term “resided in the State of Idaho” include persons who have not been actually in residence (physical presence) within the state? A case in point concerns a person, formerly classified as a resident, who has been employed in California for the past three years. During that time, he has voted absentee in Idaho elections. He owns real property in the state. He has not filed State of Idaho income tax returns since 1967.
    M/S Swartley/Peacock: That under section (b) of the current regulations defining an Idaho resident and who has not maintained continuous enrollment in an Idaho institution of higher education shall be classified as a resident of Idaho for tuition purposes if he has (1) continued to retain a voting residence in the state, and (2) has not attended an institution of higher education in another state as a resident of that state. Physical presence in Idaho is not a requirement for being classified as a resident in a case of this kind. Filing an Idaho resident income tax return is not a requirement for classification as a resident of Idaho in a case of this kind.

     Operation of New Swimming Center
     References: Regents Meeting 26-31 July 1970, page 199
    After much study by an Ad Hoc Committee and the staff of the Department of Physical Education, a detailed program of operation of the new Swimming Center has been developed. This includes policy, procedure and schedules with specific instructions for all employees and rules governing conduct of those using the pools.
    At this time, it is recommended that charges for use of the facility by faculty, staff and the general public be held in abeyance until after the pool has been in operation for a time. This is a public relations gesture and will permit further study of the cost-to-income potential. Washington State University does not charge for public use of their pool.
    M/S Swartley/Barnett: That approval for public use of the University Swimming Center at such times as specified by the Department of Physical Education, without charge until such time as studies indicated that a charge is warranted and feasible.

     Performing Arts Center
     It should be moved, seconded, and carried that the request of the Administration and Development Office of the University of Idaho to develop a three-phase construction plan for a Performing Arts Center and to authorize the architectural firm of C.J. Bellamy and Company, Coeur d’Alene to proceed with the development of working plans for the first phase be approved. The approval is predicated upon the availability of funds collected form public subscription to underwrite the work.  10/1-3/70  129
     Request for Administrative Vice President
     In accordance with recommendation made by the State Legislative Auditor to the Legislative Fiscal and Budget Committee following study of the University Business Office, it appears wise that the University plan now to divide the responsibilities presently carried by the Administrative Financial Vice President into two areas of jurisdiction each under a vice-president. In accordance with the auditor’s recommendation we are proposing that the present Administrative-Financial Vice President become the Financial Vice President and Bursar and that a new position become the Administrative Vice President be created. It is our intention that an off-campus search be conducted to find a suitable person to fill the position of Administrative Vice President. Under the new vice presidency would fall responsibility for such matters as implementation of parking and traffic regulations, space allocations, long-range University planning, campus security and similar responsibilities now carried by Doctor Carter. In addition, it would be our proposal to consolidated this position all responsibility for student personnel services which now fall under the jurisdiction of the Dean of Students, to include the Student Health Center. Dean Decker has asked to be relieved of his assignment as Dean of Student effective 1 July 1971, and we would propose not to appoint a new dean of Students but to consolidate this position into the Office of Administrative Vice President. Dean Decker will move to the position of Director of Financial Aids in an Budget-line position formerly held by Mr. Hirschi but not filled for the current academic year. Dean Decker will report to the new Administrative Vice President, and he may also be made responsible to the President for the placement, Student Counseling, Registrar and Admission functions. The position of the Business Manager of the University will remain essentially without change except that the responsibilities of Bursar will no longer be attached to this position. By relieving the Business Manager of the responsibility of the Bursar’s position, it is our feeling that adequate easement can be made in order to allow the Business Manager more time for the over view of personnel operations within the office, and we therefore do not feel that we will have to act upon the recommendation of the State Auditor that a new position of Office Manager within the Business Office be created. In order to allow adequate time to conduct the survey and secure the services of an Administrative Vice President from off campus, we are proposing the structural changes indicated above become effective 1 July 1971. In keeping with Regents policy that authorization for new positions be sought prior to any contact with potential candidates, the following recommendation is made at this time.
    M/S Thatcher/Kline: That effective 1 July 1971 the position of Administrative-Financial Vice President be eliminated and that Dr. Sherman Carter be designated as Financial Vice President and Bursar of the University. A new position of Administrative Vice President is authorized effective the same date noted above. In anticipation of this effective date, the University Administration is authorized to seek candidates for the position of Administrative Vice President of the University of Idaho appointment to be effective 1 July, 1971.

     Request for Permission to Apply to Make USO Tours
     The Department of Defense and USO are arranging to select about thirty college choral, instrumental and dramatic groups to visit Armed Forces Installations overseas and have invited the University of Idaho to apply to send such groups. Professor Edmund Chavez, head of the Department of Drama, has pointed out that participation would be of great value and would not result in increased cost to the University. It is also possible that the School of Music may wish to send a group on such a tour. Groups which are select are given an all-expense paid, five to eight week tour of own of the military commands overseas during the year September 1971 to September 1972. The university’s administrative council feels that the University of Idaho groups should be permitted to apply to go on these USO Tours.
    M/S Barnett/Thatcher: That the School of Music and the Department of Drama may apply to send groups on USO tours with the understanding that the final agreement to send any such group will be subject to Regents’ approval.
     11/12-13/70 121
     Proposed Trip to Europe for Vandaleers
     Attempts are being made to arrange a trip for about 50 Vandaleers to visit England, Holland, Denmark, Germany, and France during the period 13 March to 4 April 1971. Promoters for the trip hope to secure about $15,000 in contributions from friends of the University to partially finance the trip. Each student who goes on the trip will then have to pay about $400. If the trip is made, about ten concerts will be given in Europe. All flights will be made via regularly scheduled airlines.
    M/S Swartley/Engelking: That the University of Idaho Vandaleers be permitted to make a concert tour to Europe in the spring of 1971, with the understanding that the tour will be financed by individual contributions and payments by persons who elect to go on this tour.
     11/12-13/70  122
     Disposal of Unwanted Library Materials
     Certain books, such as some superseded textbooks, outlive their usefulness to the University library. Also, gifted materials in all types of condition, come to the library in a steady stream. Some of the items are desired for retention and some items are not. Depending upon their condition, and other factors, it may be most economically sensible to discard the items, sell them to dealers, donate them to other libraries in Idaho or elsewhere, give the items to students and faculty, donate them to nonprofit organizations, or send them to the United State Book Exchange. Senior persons in the library are most able to make proper judgments in these respects. It is proposed that the Regents delegate materials. He will then make the Dean of Instructional Services responsible to him for assuring that proper action is taken in this area.
    M/S Deaton/Swartley: That the University President be permitted to cause unwanted periodicals, books and other library materials to be disposed of by whatever method he determines to be most feasible.
     11/12-13/70  127
     Sale of Equipment
     With the completion of Theophilus Tower and de-activation of old Hays and Forney Halls and Hays Cafeteria, the University of Idaho has no foreseeable need for certain cafeteria equipment now in the Hays Hall Kitchen. Approval is requested to dispose of this surplus equipment. A related discussion concerning planned use of Hays and Forney Halls is presented in Item #5.15.
    M/S Deaton/Barnett: That the following procedure be followed with regards to the disposal of surplus kitchen and dining room equipment resulting from the deactivation of Hays Café:
    1-Sale at depreciated cost values to (by priority):
    A-University Departments
    B-University Fraternities and Sororities
    C-Lewis-Clark Normal School
    D-State of Idaho-Surplus Property
    E-Established nonprofit activities-Gritman Memorial Hospital, Youth Groups, etc.
    2-Remaining items to be advertised for bid at public sale.
     11/12-13/70  127-128
     Refunds for Students who Move Out of University Dormitories
     Students pay about $160 for a semi-private dormitory room for a semester. The payment is made in advance at the time of registration. If a student moves out of the dormitory mid-semester, in some cases he may bet a refunds for the unexpired part of the semester. Such refunds are made, for example, if a person gets married. If a person moves out of a dormitory for other reasons, for example, because he pledges to a fraternity or sorority during a semester and wishes to move into such a house, he is not permitted to get any refund of the charge made to him for his dormitory rooms. This policy is difficult to administer, is not considered fair, and is very unpopular, particularly with the fraternities and sororities. The possibility of adopting the policy cited below was discussed with representatives of the Interfraternity Council. It would be agreeable to them, would adequately protect University interests, and is recommended-
    M/S Engelking/Barnett: That students who are permitted to move out of a University dormitory during a semester shall be charged $2 per day for the time they lived in the dormitory and shall be allowed a refund for the rest of the bill which they paid in advance, less $35 which shall be retained by the University to cover administrative and related costs.
     11/12-13/70  137-138
     Revised Food Service Guest Rates
     In establishing the variable meal plans for the University cafeterias, the guest rates were set to allow the lowest possible costs to regular student ticket holders who wished to purchase additional meals for themselves and their guests. As a result, students purchasing meals under the “A” plan (25 points per week) are actually paying more per point than are off-campus or non-ticket holding guests. It is, therefore, recommended that a separate guest rate for non-ticket holders are established and that the guest rates for the regular ticket holders remain unchanged as follows.
    M/S Deaton/Peacock: That the above outlined quest rates for meals in University residence hall cafeterias be approved.
     11/12-13/70  138

Premium cost for this is $3.36 for the employee of which the University contributes $2.52 (75%) and $4.74 for a spouse. The company has offered to increase this coverage to $10,000 maximum per illness in any three consecutive years at a premium cost of $3.50 per employee and $.96 for the spouse. On this basis the University would contribute $2.63 per month for each eligible retired employee.
    M/S Barnett/Peacock: That the additional medical coverage for University retired employees as outlined above be approved.
     11/12-13/70  140
     Medical Insurance- Regular and Part-time Employees and Students
     The existing program for employee major medical insurance coverage carried with the New England Mutual Life Insurance Company covers only full-time employees. A number of graduate assistants have indicated the desire to enroll in this plan if it is permissible. In addition, there are a few cases involving employees who are working more than one-half time and who wish to secure this coverage.
    Secondly, part-time students and students who have their fees waived because they hold fellowships or for other reasons, do not have access to the University hospital. Without having paid the infirmary fee, neither are they eligible for coverage under the optional insurance offered by the North Idaho Medical Service Bureau.
    It is recommended that, subject to concurrence of the New England Mutual Life Insurance Company where necessary, that approval be granted to extend medical and health insurance and infirmary services to students and employees as indicated on the next page.
    M/S Barnett/Thatcher: That (1) major medical insurance be made available at their option to all Regent employees of the University of Idaho, with the understanding that persons who are not full-time employees will pay the total premium without University participation; and (2) students who are now eligible for services at the Student Health Center be granted the option of receiving these services by the payment of the Student Health Service fee and the Infirmary Bond fee.

     Permit- Here We Have Idaho
     M/S Thatcher/Barnett: That the Bursar be authorized to grant, without charge, to Schaum Publications, Inc., 2018 East North Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, permission to include the words of the State Song of Idaho in a book compiling a collection of state songs from each of the fifty states. Permission is also granted for the Bursar to grant similar requests from publishers in the future, when he concludes that it will be in the University’s best interests to grant such requests.  11/12-13/70  141
     Option to Lease- Space for Microwave Transmission Equipment
     The Microwave Transmission Corporation of Vienna, Virginia, has requested permission to locate certain microwave equipment on University property at the Paradise Ridge site of the KUID transmission tower, southeast of Moscow, for the purpose of receiving and transmitting certain commercial television signals from Portland, Oregon, to various locations in Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington. The Department of Communication has indicated that installation of this equipment will in no way affect their present or further operation at that location.
    M/S Deaton/Engelking: That the University of Idaho be authorized to enter into an option to lease space within, and outside its building at the KUID transmitter site on Paradise Ridge to the Microwaved Transmission Corporation, 1920 Aline Avenue, Vienna, Virginia 22180, a Delaware corporation for an annual fee of $200. The option shall be for a term of three years. Further, approval is given for a lease agreement with subject corporation for a period of ten years at the rental rate of $41.67 per month with the privilege of renewing and extending the lease for an additional five years at a rental rate of $60 per month. This lease provides that the corporation shall be permitted to construct, install, operate and maintain a microwave transmission facility and all other related apparatus incidental to the operation of such a microwave transmission facility upon the premises.
     11/12-13/70  141
     Request for General Authority to Lease Space on Paradise Ridge
     The University owns about 3.76 acres of land on Paradise Ridge about three miles from Moscow. There is a building at that location housing a considerable amount of equipment, to include an emergency power supply. These facilities are used for University TV and FM antennas and transmitters. The University also incurs expenses from time to time to maintain a road to the site. It seems to be the best accessible location within the Moscow area for certain communications equipment, and the Fountain Flying Service, Moscow Public Schools and City and County Policy have been permitted to install equipment within and outside the building, at no cost. Such organizations will probably want to install additional equipment at the site in the future, and it may be proper and appropriate to begin to make reasonable charges to all such organization which make use of University facilities.
    The University has received a request from KRPL to lease space within and outside the building for installation of a transmitter and antenna. The request points out that the new facility will allow additional coverage of university events and will provide public service of an emergency broadcasting nature in time of emergency. Dr. Gordon Law indicates that the equipment within the building will require and area only about five feet square, that KRPL would probably agree to pay about $50 per month to lease this area, and the installation would not interfere with other installations at the site, and he recommends that KRPL’s request be approved.
    M/S Barnett/Deaton: That the University Bursar be authorized to execute options and lease agreements for use of space at the University’s transmitter and antenna site on Paradise Ridge, as long as such usage will not interfere with University activities at the site.

     Athletics Complex Plan
     A presentation was made to the Board by Mr. Glen Cline, Architect, on the current status of the planning for the stadium and basketball pavilion of the new Athletics Complex.  11/12-13/70  143
     Landscaping and Development of Areas Around Women's Health, Education Building, and Swimming Center
     M/S Swartely/Thatcher: That approval be given for the development of the area around the Women’s Health Education Building and the Swimming Center as follows:
    1. Drainage, grading and finishing slope of bank south of Education Building, $10,915
    2. Lawn Sprinkler System on east side of buildings $10,300
    3. Lawn and Landscaping on east side of buildings $9,000
    4. Asphalt paving on west side of buildings (provide 45 parking spaces) $12,960
    5. Concrete sidewalks on east side of buildings $5,690
    6. Provide concrete with exposes aggregate for area under Education Building Kiva $3,530
    Subtotal: $48,865. Contingency 5%: $2,435. Grant Total: $51,300
    Sources of funds for this work to be General Budget, Plant Outlay Projects, utilizing funds previously earmarked for enclosing space on the ground floor on the Mines Building.
     11/12-13/70  143-144
     Use to be Made of Forney Hall and Hays Hall
     These two buildings were built on the University of Idaho campus in 1924 and 1926, respectively, and were used as dormitories for women until the fall of 1969, when the women from these halls were moved into Theophilus Tower. Since that time, space in Hays Hall and Forney Hall have been rented to Washington State University and used to house groups visiting the University of Idaho. One of the problems with using these buildings as dormitories has been that their layout caused the provision of meals to be costly and inefficient, and we no longer want to serve meals in those buildings.
    Present plans are to rent rooms on upper floors to male, graduate students, and law students on a “room without board” basis. There seems to be a considerable demand for such rooms which can be attractively furnished with small refrigerators, hot plate units, sinks, beds and other furniture form within the dormitory funding system. Students who rent such rooms may eat in their own rooms, in the Student Union Building, in a University cafeteria, or elsewhere they wish. Detailed plans and proposals concerning these matters are now being worked out and will be submitted at a later Regents meeting. Some or all of these rooms could be ready for occupancy next fall.
    Plans for use of Hays Hall and Forney Hall provide for using the ground floors of these buildings for centralized duplicating and campus mail services, the publications office, news bureau, the office of the Alumni Secretary, and an alumni lounge. Financing has not yet been worked out to complete the renovation of all of this space to make it most useful to the University. At this time approval is sought to undertake the minimum amount of work necessary to move campus duplicating services into the old Forney Hall dining room area and to use the first floor of Hays Hall for the Alumni Secretary’s Office and an alumni lounge.
    M/S Thatcher/McCollum: That authorization be granted to expend $5,000 to accomplish necessary electrical work and other work to move campus duplicating services into the dining room in Forney Hall and to expend $10,000 to renovate an area in Hays Hall for use by the office of the Alumni Secretary.
     11/12-13/70  144-145
     Change Orders- Swimming Center Building
     Under previous Board direction and upon advice of the Office of the Attorney General of Idaho, payments have been made or are in progress to the contractors in connection with the disputed change orders G-2, M-2, and E-1. A copy of the Attorney General’s letter is attached for Regents information, Exhibit III.
    M/S Thatcher/Barnett: That the President of the University of Idaho be directed to obtain qualified independent legal counsel to research the case and determine what action should be taken against Culler, Gale, Martell and Norrie and/or their insurance carriers and any other person, firm or corporation who may be involved, to recover costs incurred by the University of Idaho in the construction of the Swimming Center due to design errors in the original plan made by the above referenced architectural firm.
     11/12-13/70  145
     Sale of House at 418 College Avenue
     Report is made that on 21 October 1970 the Idaho Farm House Club, Incorporated, made the final payment on the conditional sales contract covering purchase of the property at 418 College Avenue as approved by the Regents at their meeting on 27-29 September 1962. The price of this property was $11,250 and a warranty deed has been delivered to the purchaser.  11/12-13/70  148
     Renaming of University Building
     On the University campus there is now a “University Classroom Building” or UCB, which was built about 1940 and is now used exclusively by the Department of Journalism, and a “University Classroom Center” or UCC, which was built in 1965 and consists principally of classrooms. It is recommended that, in order to eliminate confusion resulting from the fact that these two buildings have similar names, the University Classroom Building be renamed the “Journalism Building.”
    M/S Engelking/Swartley: That the name of the University Classroom Building be changed to the Journalism Building.
     11/12-13/70  148
     Change in Commencement Date, 1971
     Washington State University and the University of Idaho have inadvertently scheduled their Commencements on the same date, Sunday, June 6, 1971. Due to the limited accommodations for visitors in the area, it is desirable for one institution to change its date. The Faculty Council of the University of Idaho recommends that we change our date to Sunday, May 30, 1971 (Memorial Day).
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That the University of Idaho Commencement for 1971 be rescheduled for May 30, 1971.
     11/12-13/70  148-149
     Requirement for Students to Live on Campus
     Last school year freshmen men and freshmen, sophomore, and junior women students were required to live on campus. In May 1970, a student-faculty committee urged the equalization of on-campus housing regulations for men and women as promptly as possible and that the University require only freshmen men and women to live on campus. This requirement, the committee concluded, would provide freshmen a “beneficial and needed orientation to the University Community and the broader problems of the general educational process.” Subsequently, the Faculty Council recommended that effective with the 1971-72 academic year only freshmen men and women be required to live on campus.
    In June 1970 the University Administration recommended to the Regents that the requirement for junior women to live on campus be eliminated, and this was approved. Increased enrollment next school year should offset any decrease in dormitory rentals if rules are changed to no long require sophomore women to live on campus; accordingly, it is recommended that only freshmen be required to live on campus effective next fall.
    M/S Swartley/Engelking: That effective with the 1971-72 academic year, only freshmen men and women shall be required to live on campus.
     11/12-13/70  149
     Policy- Compensation to Sub-Professional Employees for Extra Services
     Because of the nature of their particular duties, it occasionally is necessary for certain employees to perform extra service. This most often involves employees at the Branch Experiment Stations as well as farm help at Moscow. It is recommended that in order to provide some equity in these instances the following policies and procedures shall apply allowing additional compensation for full-time Board appointed sub-professional employees for extra time services:
    1. Extra time employment must be fully agreed upon among the department head, the branch station superintendent, the project supervisor and the employee prior to accumulating extra time. Extra time is defined to be work beyond 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours work week.
    2. Extra time compensation will be optional with the supervisor or administrator and will depend upon available budgeted funds in the Irregular Help category of the project.
    3. An employee is entitled to compensation time off for extra employment which must be agreed to by the supervisor. When compensatory time off cannot be given, the employee shall be entitled to payment for extra time worked.
    4. Payment for extra employment shall be only for critical extra time employment needs as determined by the department head of supervisor.
    5. Compensatory time or payment for extra time services per individual shall be limited to 10 hours per week; 40 hours per month; and in no case shall exceed a maximum of 200 hours per fiscal year (1 July to 30 June)
    6. Hourly extra time compensation shall be calculated on the straight time basis of the annual salary/2,000. Thus an individual with a salary of $5,000 shall have an hourly extra time rate of $2.50. This rate shall be verified in the Payroll Office.
    7. Extra time shall be reported on a special form for each employee at the end of each month. After proper approval, a separate check shall be issued for extra time services performed.
    8. The supervisor shall be responsible that the full-time sub-professional employees under his supervision are efficiently employed during all periods of the year.
    9. This policy will remain in effect until further notice, but may be changed at any time.
    M/S Thatcher/Deaton: That the policy on Compensation to Sub-professional Employees for Extra Services be approved as outlined in paragraph 2.1.
     11/12-13/70  149-151
     Performing Arts Center
     In the October 1-3, 1970 Board Minutes, page 129, the motion was inadvertently omitted, this item should read as follows:
    M/S Kline/McCollum: That the request of the Administration and Development Office of the University of Idaho to develop a three-phase construction plan for a Performing Arts Center and to authorize the architectural firm of CJ Bellamy and Company, Coeur d’Alene, to proceed with the development of working plans for the first phase be approved. The approval is predicated upon the availability of funds collected from public subscription to underwrite the work.
     11/12-13/70 151
     Circular Letters and Conference Calls
     M/S Swartley/McCollum: That the following circular letter be confirmed:
    #13 Statement of Plans, Problems, Hopes and Aspirations for the University of Idaho—1970-71—Information Only
     11/12-13/70  151
     Requisitions  The Wildlife Research Unit has immediate use of a trained hound to be used in the capture of marked bobcats and cougars on Project WU-75. Dr. William D. Fitzgerald, University Physician, has offered to sell them this hound which has been trained for $150. The Department requests authority to purchase from this specific source.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That approval be granted for the purchase of one trained dog from Dr. William D. Fitzgerald for use by the Wildlife Research Unit at a cost of $150.
     11/12-13/70  160
     Agreement- Use of Vehicle
     M/S Barnett/Deaton: That approval be given for an agreement with University Volkswagen of Moscow under which University Volkswagen will make available one 1971 9 passenger Volkswagen Model 2215 for use of the Associated Students, Student Union, and Argonaut for travel within Moscow and vicinity primarily for Argonaut ad sales and deliveries, for the period of 1 November 1970 to 1 June 1971. It is understood that the University will proved liability insurance, pay operating expenses and provide proper maintenance. There is no further charge to the University for use of the vehicle, but the university agrees to provide ownership credit lines on the unit.  11/12-13/70  160
     Agreement- American Heritage Association, Vandaleer European Tour
     In making arrangements for the proposed tour of the University Vandaleers Choral Group to Europe in March 1971, it is necessary to utilize the services of a travel agent. Professor Lockery has investigated several agencies and now recommends that we retain American Heritage Association, Lake Oswego, Oregon, for this assignment. This firm is experienced in this particular type of group tour and can provide services required only by a group of this kind.
    M/S McCollum/Engelking: That American Heritage Association be retained as the travel agent for the 1971 Study Abroad Concert Program in Europe of the University Vandaleers.
     11/12-13/70  160-161
     Agreement- SCS, Use of Backhoe
     M/S Swartley/Kline: That approval be given a cooperative agreement between the Regents of the University of Idaho, acting through the College of Agriculture, and the United States Department of Agriculture, and the United States Department of Agriculture, Soil Conservation Services, under which the SCS will be granted use of a backhoe for field reviews and soil investigations in the ten northern Idaho counties.  11/12-13/70  162
     Temporary Financing- Athletic Complex Construction
     In order to expedite planning for the Stadium and Pavilion phases of the Athletics Complex, it has been necessary to commit funds for the feasibility study, foundation investigation and architect fees. In addition, a drain line is being recommended for immediate construction. These are a part of the cost of the facilities and ultimately will come from the proposed bond issue for construction. Meanwhile, no funds are available in the construction fund because the student fee income has been and is pledged for payment of the indebtedness incurred for construction of the Perimeter Drive and the Swimming Center.
    Authority is requested to utilize, on a temporary basis, funds from the Student Facilities account as a loan to the Athletics Complex construction fund in any necessary amount to cover current commitments, but not to exceed $400,000. Further, authority is requested to shift current investments of the Student Facilities Fund to other funds where feasible to generate the necessary cash needed to implement these loans.
    M/S Swartley/Peacock: That the temporary financing plan for the Athletics Complex Construction fund be approved as outlined above.
     11/12-13/70  162
     Employment of Consultant
     Reference: Regents minutes, 8-9 June 1970, page 191
    Report is made of the fact that the University of Idaho contracted for the service of Mr. O Kern Devin, Jr. as approved by the Regents, to evaluate the publications and graphics programs at the University and to prepare a coordinated plan for improving these programs. Most of the work outlined in the contract has now been completed. After his comprehensive review of University of Idaho publications, Mr. Devin made numerous recommendations, to include the elimination of some publications, and the instituting of other publications and overall design concepts to make University publications more effective. His recommendations were endorsed and acclaimed by the University’s Administrative Council. The updated designs and improvements will soon be apparent in University graphics and publications.
    Various elements of the University wish to employ Mr. Devin to assist them with artwork and design of specific University publications, in accordance with overall concepts presented and adopted. Each of these jobs which is undertaken will be a separate project and the cost of each project will vary depending upon the work to be performed. The cost may be perhaps $200 to $500 per project or publication. The cost will not be sufficiently high to bring these projects to the Regents for approval. However, it seems appropriate to explain that Mr. Devin will be receiving over $5,500 which the Regents authorized the University to pay him for a specific job, but that the additional payments will be for additional, individual small projects.

     Processing and Storage Facility- Plant Science Farm
     Existing facilities for processing and storage of seed from research plots in northern Idaho are inadequate to meet the expanded programs of the Department of Plant Sciences. The College of Agriculture recommends construction of a 30’ x 60’ metal building on a concrete slab at the Plant Science Farm. Funds for this construction are available in the balance of land at the Sandpoint Experiment Station.
    M/S McCollum/Engelking: That approval be given for development by the Physical Plant of plans and specifications for a processing and storage facility, estimated to cost $20,000 at the Plant Sciences Farm.
     11/12-13/70  163-164
     Neale Stadium Drainage
     The water problem encountered in construction of the track and field facility caused substantial delay in completion. To avoid a similar situation in the proposed stadium, it is recommended that there be installed a drain line which will enable construction work to begin much earlier next spring. Estimated cost of this work, which will be necessary whenever the stadium is constructed, is $30,000.
    M/S McCollum/Peacock: That the University Physical Plant staff be authorized, with the cooperative of Cline, Smull, Hamill, Shaw, and Associates, to develop plans for draining the Neale Stadium area. Further, authority is granted to call for bids on this work as soon as possible.
     11/12-13/70  164
     Transfer of Electrical Feeder Line to Washington Water Power
     Group houses on Nez Perce Drive receive electrical service from an underground feeder line that was installed when the street was built. It is not connected to the University electrical power distribution system. Approximately three years ago, we experienced problems with this line and it was necessary for the Washington Water Power Company to construct an overhead line as a temporary replacement. The University furnished all the materials for that except the transformers and some miscellaneous hardware. The underground line has since been replaced and is now in use and the overhead line serves only as a standby.
    We are in receipt of an invoice for $225.58 for construction of the overhead line. The Physical Plant Division recommends that in lieu of paying this amount that the University transfer title of the underground feeder, including the two vaults and two transformers to the Washington Water Power Company. The line produces no revenue for the University. The only thing we have is maintenance which can be costly. If this line were to become the property of the Washington Water Power company responsibility for maintenance would then rest with them.
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That approval be given for transfer of the underground electrical feed line on Nez Perce Drive to the Washington Water Power Company.
     11/12-13/70  165
     Bond Issue
     M/S Kline/Engelking: That authorization be given for issuance of bonds in the amount of $4,500,000 proceeds of which will be used to:
    1. Refinance the outstanding notes issued for construction of the swimming center,
    2. Repay the temporary loan from Athletics Operations Fund for construction of the track and field facility,
    3. Provide funds for planning and construction of a new stadium and/or a new basketball pavilion.
    Further, the Idaho First National Bank, fiscal agent, for this bond issue is requested to take necessary steps for the development and sale of this issue at a date which will appropriate correlate with the bid opening for construction of the stadium.
     11/12-13/70  165
     Athletics Complex Plan
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That a revised concept for completing the athletic stadium and pavilion at the University of Idaho, as summarized below, be approved:
    a. Construction of a new stadium of about $16,000 seats with an ability later to receive approximately 4,000 additional seats.
    b. Design of a roof system for the stadium with installation of the support structure and eventual addition of the roof after final arrangements for the financing of it are worked out and approved by the Regents.
    c. Completion of redesign work necessary to change from original design concepts, with the understanding that the increased cost for this work will total between $15,000 and $25,000.
    d. Awarding of construction contracts on an incremental basis, to expedite construction and make possible the completion of seating in the stadium and make possible the completion of seating in the stadium and other minimum facilities so that games can be held in the stadium by September 1971 with the understanding that Regents approval is to be secured prior to the awarding of each individual contract.

     Statement of Student Rights
     M/S McCollum/Engelking: Unanimously carried that the Statement of Student Rights, and appended footnotes, be adopted by the State Board of Education and Board of Regents of the University of Idaho for the University of Idaho. Further, it is understood that this statement shall be included as an integral part of a subsequent document specifying the Responsibilities and Code of Conduct for the Students of the University of Idaho; and that the completed document be submitted to the Regents at the earliest possible time.  11/12-13/70  167
     Agreement- State of Idaho Department of Employment
     M/S Barnett/Engelking: that approval be given an agreement between the Regents of the University of Idaho, acting through the Caldwell Veterinary Research Laboratory, and the Idaho State Department of Employment under which the Department of Employment will establish a work incentive program at the Caldwell Veterinary Research Laboratory. The University is not required to provide any funding for this project.  12/10-11/70  83-84
     Change of Bank Accounts
     Re: Regents minutes 6-7 May 1965, page 40, 14-15 December 1967, page 77
    In recent years there have been two actions taken by the Regents concerning bank deposit policy. In May 1965 the Bursar was instructed to open an account at the Bank of Idaho in the amount of $100,000. This was from the Business Manager’s Fund. In December 1967, the Treasurer of the Board was authorized to make certain changes in the deposit location of Regents funds made necessary by a determination that Regents funds would be deposited generally in accord with a percentage distribution among the three banks in Moscow. IN addition, there are certain accounts maintained separately to meet requirements of some of the building bond indentures.
    In his performance audit report to the Idaho Legislature Budget and Fiscal Committee, James A. Defenback took exception to the fact that the above referenced $100,000 deposit in the Bank of Idaho is in an inactive checking account. He recommended that the account be closed and the funds invested.
    At the present time, due to the heavy expenditure of funds for (1) married student housing, and (2) the athletics complex, we are in the process of liquidating temporary investments rather than investing funds. The $100,000 is needed to carry current activities within the Business Manager’s Fund.
    The following recommendations are made concerning the banking activity of the Business Manager’s fund:
    That the two accounts now carried in the Bank of Idaho be merged into a Business Manager’s Fund as soon as possible that all fiscal activities of the scholarship program and the Fund for the Performing Arts Center be handled through that account.
    That a portion of the Business Manager’s Fund now on deposit in the first security bank be transferred to the Business Managers’ Fund in the Idaho First National Bank (new account) and that all fiscal activities of the Associated Students and the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics be handled through that account.
    That other activities of the Business Manager’s Fund be continued in the present account to the First Security Bank.
    M/S Barnett/Thatcher: That the above recommendations concerning bank accounts be approved and adopted.

     Palouse Empire Mall- Report
     Mr. ED McCarthy, CSM, reports further progress in the contacts and discussions with prospective tenants toward the development of the Palouse Empire Mall Shopping Center. Billings on this contract for 1970 include $681.78 for architectural services and $58 travel expense, a total of $739.78. No charge has been made for his own services. In addition, we have paid to date development costs of $5,858.70 (land survey, $1500; feasibility study $4000; ED McCarthy, 1969, $358.70.)
    At this time, as requested by the architects and consulting engineers, we are preparing to employ the firm of Cornell, Howland, Hays and Merryfield to conduct necessary soil exploration studies on the site.
    Within the near future it will be advisable that we retain legal counsel to assist on this project. Hopefully that counsel can be someone who will be able to follow through to the completion of occupancy state. A recommendation on this will be presented at a subsequent meeting.

     Architect Contract- Performing Arts Center, Report
     Reference: Board minutes, 1-3 October 1970, page 129
    Pursuant to Regents authorization at the October meeting, a contract is being developed with CJ Bellamy and Company, Architects, for the plans and specifications of Phase I of the Performing Arts Center, estimated to cost $850,000 for the building and $150,000 for the equipment. As now written, the fee is based on the current State of Idaho fee schedule and breaks down as follows.
     12/10-11/70  95
     Renaming of Engineering Laboratory
     The College of Engineering has recommended that the building now known as Kirtley Engineering Laboratory be renamed “Henry F. Gauss Mechanical Engineering Laboratory.” The late Professor Gauss served the University of Idaho with distinction as Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering from 1925 until his retirement in 1955. It is most appropriate that the building be renamed to honor him.
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That the building now known as “Kirtley Engineering Laboratory” be renamed “Henry F. Gauss Mechanical Engineering Laboratory.”

    Circular Letters and Conference Calls
    M/S Thatcher/Peacock: That the following circular letter be confirmed:
    #16 Bid Openings: 1-Hays and Forney Remodeling, 1- Athletics Complex Storm Drainage System
    Circular Letter No. 16 dated 8 January 1971. At 2:00 p.m. on 7 January 1971 bids were received on the above subject projects. Seven bids were submitted on the Remodeling of Hays and Forney Halls and eleven bids were submitted on the Storm Drainage System for the Athletics Complex. A tabulation of the bids as prepared by the Physical Plant Division, is attached. The low bids are well within budgets.
    The Hays-Forney Remodeling project is in the General Operating Budget. Following issuance of the Governor of Executive Order No. 71-1 on 4 January, which indicated some restrictions in expenditure of Capital Outlay funds, we are making no recommendation on this project at this time. It will be discussed with The Regents at the meeting on January 28-29.
    The Storm Drainage system is rather essential to the early development of the proposed Athletics Complex. Sources of funds would be the Athletics Facilities Bond Issue. It is, therefore, recommended that the low bid of Jay W. Tribitt in the amount of $30,461.83 be accepted.
    Just prior to the bid opening on the latter project, architect Glen Cline determined that it would be desirable to modify the specifications and move the upward drain line 2 feed deeper than called for in the plans. As this was not in the specifications, Mr. Cline has negotiated with Mr. Tribitt and recommends that we also approve this added work as a Change Order at an additional cost of $900. In order to get this project completed as soon as possible, we are concurring this in further recommendation.

    Revised Admissions Section of General Catalog
    The revised admissions section of the general catalog, see attached exhibit II, is primarily an editorial revision; however, upon recommendation of the Matriculation Committee, University Curriculum Committee, and the Faculty Council, the University Faculty did approve some changes in substance in the section:
    1. In Item 3 of the section headed “Credentials,” page 1, the requirement that transfer students with less than twenty-six credits must have the scores they received on the CEEB or ACT tests sent to the University is new. This same change is reflected in item 5 under the section headed “Applicants With Previous College Credit,” on page 6.
    2. Item 3 of the section headed “Applicants with Previous College Credit,” on page 4, is new although advanced placement granted by other accredited institutions generally has been honored in practice.
    3. The item headed “Summer Non-Matriculated Students” on page 5, has been changed, effective with the 1971 summer sessions, to permit such students to take a full load of course work. Previously these students were restricted to three credits in any one summer.
    M/S Thatcher/McCollum: That the revised admissions section of the general catalog, see attached exhibit II, be approved, effective in the first semester, 1971-1972, except that the revised item covering summer non-matriculated students shall be effective with the 1971 summer sessions.

    124-125
    Revised General Requirements and Academic Procedures
    The revised general requirements and academic procedures section of the general catalog, see attached exhibit III, represents a thorough revamping of this section. This revision is the product of more than a year of work on the part of many committees and councils. Fundamentally, it has been the faculty’s goal to state requirements and procedures positively- to eliminate so much stress on penalties- and to bring these regulations into line with practice and the “Statement of Student Rights.”
    It should be noted that several non-academic regulations have been deleted from this catalog section (e.g. regulations covering smoking, alcoholic beverages, auditing of accounts, etc.); however, these regulations will continue in force and will be printed in the Handbook of Policy and Procedure and the Student Handbook, and in Similar more appropriate publications.
    M/S Deaton/Engelking: That the revised catalog section headed “General Requirements and Academic Procedures,” see attached exhibit III, be approved effective with the opening of the 1971-72 academic year unless otherwise specified with particular regulations.

    1/28-30/71

    Standardized Procedures and Courses
    In July, 1970, the Board approved changes in the course-numbering system for the University of Idaho. While no further changes are recommended in the basic numbering pattern, additional changes and procedures have been recommended:
    1. Currently there is great diversity among the subject areas in the way they handle their catalog entries for the seminar, directed-study, independent study, special-project, workshop, and similar courses. In an effort to bring more equity and order into the picture, it is recommended that insofar as possible, these courses be more drawn together under similar titles and procedures, except in those cases where immediate conformity would cause hardships. To accomplish this change, approval is needed for the section headed “Reserved Course Numbers” in the enclosed exhibit IV. Courses which conflict with or duplicate the new entries will be discontinued, effective with the 1971-72 academic year.
    2. In the current catalog the University has many subtitled courses. Psychology 555 is an example. Pysch. 555, Seminar, has twenty-three subtitles (specific areas in which the department expects that the seminar may be offered). The catalog listing for this one course takes almost a half of a page. In part to reduce printing costs, it is recommended that subtitles, such as be eliminated from the catalog and that such matters be handled in the official time schedule of classes. Courses which may be offered with more specific titles will be marked in the catalog with a white square before the title, e.g. Psych 555 [ ] Seminar. The white square will indicate to the registrar that more complete titles may be listed in the time schedule, e.g. Psych 555 Seminar in Research Design. The specific procedures for the above are outlined in the section headed “Course in Which Subtitles are Authorized” in the enclosed exhibit IV.
    3. The method for showing credits with courses has been slightly amended for clarification (see section headed “Credit Designations for Courses”). While the other paragraphs in this catalog section have been up-dated to reflect current policies and procedures, they do not contain substantive changes.
    M/S McCollum/Barnett: That the revised catalog section headed “Numbering system and Key to Abbreviations and Symbols,” see attached exhibit IV, including the addition of standardized courses listed therein, be approved, effective first semester, 1971-72.

    126-127
    New Options under the BA and BS Degrees
    At the Board’s June 1970 meeting, revised Letters and Science general college requirements for the BA and BS degrees were approved. Previously the general requirements had been the same for each of these degrees. The change provided a different liberal arts core for the degree for Bachelor of Science. Several L&S departments now wish to make it possible for their majors to elect either set of core requirements, and thus to be awarded either the BA or BS as determined by the core program satisfied. To do this, approval must be obtained to offer eth BA in certain majors previously offered only under the BS and the BS must be added in certain majors which lead only to a BA degree. This is not a request for new fields- the majors are already authorized and offered at the university.
    M/S Swartley/Peacock: That the request to offer the BA degree in biology, botany, mathematics, physics, psychology, and zoology, as well as the BS degree in drama, economics, geography, history, political science, sociology, and speech, effective with the 1970-71 academic year, be approved.

    1/28-30/71
    127
    Addition of BFA Curriculum in Drama
    The university currently offers a major in drama under the BA degree. The Department of Drama/Speech wishes to give drama students the option of BA, BS, or BFA degree, depending upon which set of requirements is fulfilled. The BS in drama is requested under Item 3.34 above.
    M/S McCollum/Engelking: That the BFA in drama be approved, effective with 1971-72 academic year.

    1/28-30/71
    127
    Addition to Applied Mathematics Curriculum
    The Department of Mathematics wishes to offer students a curriculum in mathematics which will be less theoretical. This will be in addition to the traditional BS in mathematics, and will be of interest to students wishing a more practical approach.
    M/S Thatcher/Barnett: That effective with the 1970-71 academic year, the following degree program be approved: “Mathematics-Applied Mathematics (BS).”

    1/28-30/71
    128
    Modification of Medical Technology Curriculum
    The university currently offers an undergraduate major in “Bacteriology-Medical Technology Option (BS).” The word “option” as part of the major’s name has caused some confusion because there are options under the option. The Department of Bacteriology wishes to drop the work option from the name of the major.
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: that the request to delete the word “option” from the BS curriculum in “Bacteriology-Medical Technology Option” be approved.

    1/28-30/71
    128
    Revision of Sociology Curriculum
    The University currently offers work in social work under the Sociology curriculum; however, when students complete the additional courses for the social work option, only the word “Sociology” appears on their diploma. It would be very helpful to these graduates if the words “Sociology-Social Work” appeared on the transcript and diploma.
    M/S Deaton/Swartley: That the request for a separate major in Sociology-Social Work (BA or BS) be approved.

    1/28-30/71
    128
    Graduate Programs in Trade-Technical and Vocational Education
    Currently the graduate students in trade-technical education and vocational education are grouped under the graduate major in education. This has caused some confusion when trying to identify these majors for funding purposes. It is generally agreed that it would be better to have separately named majors.
    M/S McCollum/Peacock that the request for the graduate majors in “Trade-Technical Education, MS, M.Ed.,” and “Vocational Education, MS, M.Ed., Prof. Cert.” be approved.

    1/28-30/71
    129
    Division of the Graduate Major in Education
    The current (1969-71) University catalog, page 36, shows the offerings at eh graduate level in education as follows: Education-MS, M.Ed., MAT, Prof. Cert. (Ed), Ed.D., and Ph.D.; Elementary education, Guidance and Counseling, School Administration, School Pychology-Prof. Cert. (Ed) only, Secondary Education, Special Education.
    The College of Education wishes to discontinue designating all of the graduate students in the above options as majors in “education”; therefore, approval is requested of this general entry into separate majors as follows: Education-MAT, Prof. Cert., Ed.D, Ph.D.; Elementary education-MS, M.Ed. Ed.D., Ph.D; Guidance and Counseling-MS, M.Ed., Prof. Cert. Ed.D., Ph.D.; School Administration- MS, M.Ed., Prof. Cert., Ed.D., Ph.D.; School Psychology-Prof. Cert., Secondary Education-MS, M.Ed, Ed.D., Ph.D.; Special Education- MS, M.Ed., Prof. Cert. Ed.D. Ph.D.
    It should be noted that this item does not include any new programs. The current programs are to be offered under more readily identifiable major names.
    M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That the editorial division of the graduate major in education, as shown above be approved.

    1/28-30/71
    129-130
    Confirmation of MAT Degrees in Subject Fields
    In 1967 the Board authorized the University to offer degrees of Masters of Arts in Teaching (major in education), and the Master of Arts in Teaching (Name of Subject Field). The subject field MAT degrees were authorized in areas certifiable by the State Department of Education. Since 1967 MAT programs have been developed in art, biology, chemistry, drama-speech, earth science, social sciences, and sociology-anthropology.
    Each of the subject-field MAT degrees actually carries a different name, e.g. Master of Arts in Teaching English, etc. Questions have been related as to whether each of the subject-field MAT degrees constitute a new instructional program, particularly in terms of the new Board Policy Manual.
    M/S Engelking/Peacock: That the subject-field MAT degrees in art, biology, chemistry, drama-speech, earth science, English, geography, history, mathematics, music, physics, political science, social sciences, and sociology-anthropology, be approved.

    1/28-30/71

    Confirmation of Certificate of General Proficiency
    In 1969 the Board authorized the University to offer the “Certificates of General proficiency in (name of field)” to students in the NRTS Education Program at Idaho Falls who complete the specified requirements. Since under the new Board Policy Manual each new certificate requires approval, it is felt that specific approval should be obtained for the following certificates which have been developed under the earlier authorization: Certificate of General Proficiency in; Accounting, Computer Programing (Commercial), Computer Programing (Scientific), Health Physics, Management, Mathematics, Subcontract Management.
    M/S Peacock/Barnett: That the certificates of general proficiency, as shown above be approved.

    130-131
    Change of Calendar for Second Semester 1970-71
    At the November 1970 meeting, the Board approved the change of date for the 1971 Commencement from June 6 to May 30 because of the scheduling conflict with Washington State University. At the meetings of the University Faculty held on December 3 and 14, 1970, the following additional calendar adjustments were recommended:
    1. Shorten the second semester by one week, thus hold final examinations from May 21 through May 28.
    2. For the second semester 1970-71 only, eliminate Washington’s Birthday as a holiday and schedule it as a regular day of classes.
    3. For the second semester 1970-71 only, eliminate the “dead day” prior to finals (would have fallen on May 20 under the revised calendar) and schedule it as a regular day of classes.
    4. Utilize the time made available by the changing of the date for Commencement by authorizing the offering of a one-week summer pre-session, Jun 7-11, primarily to accommodate the vocational teacher education program as part of the summer resident credit offering.
    5. Dismiss classes on Friday, March 5, 1970, so that all members of the University community may participate in the Borah Symposium.
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the adjustments in the academic calendar for 1970-71 as recommended above be approved. Mr. Barnett voted negatively.

    Lucile Bondurant Scholarship
    Reference: Regents minutes 12-14 June 1964, page 61
    In 1964 the Regents accepted from Mrs. Lucile Olin, mother of Cecil Bondurant, funds for the establishment of the Lucile Olin Scholarship, the income of which is awarded to majors in Radio-TV who are members of Alpha Epsilon Rho (National Broadcasting Honorary Fraternity). We now have a letter from Mrs. Olin requesting that we change the name of this scholarship to the Lucile Bondurant Scholarship Fund.
    M/S Swartley/Peacock: That effective immediately the Lucile Olin Scholarship account be renamed the Lucile Bondurant Scholarship.

    Work Study Agreement- US Bureau of Mines
    M/S McCollum/Peacock: That approval be given a cooperative education work-study program agreement between the University of Idaho, College of Mines, and the US Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, under which undergraduate students may alternate periods of work at the Bureau and study at the College. The University has the right of acceptance of any student by the Bureau. While on work assignments, the students are paid by the Bureau. The university has no financial commitment to the program beyond the time of the coordinator advising and counseling trainees and furnishing certain reports to the Bureau.

    Bookstore Working Capital Increase
    The continued increase in student enrollment has made necessary larger inventories of books and supplies at the University Student Bookstore. This together with the increased cost of all merchandise, has resulted in a severe shortage of working capital for that activity. To meet this, it is recommended that all earnings in excess of existing commitments be allocated to working capital until that account is increased from the present $134,602.06 to $225,000. Based on the 1969-70 operating results this will utilize such excess earnings through 1975.
    M/S McCollum/Deaton: That the unallocated earnings of the University Student Bookstore as of 30 June 1970, in the amount of $20,543.06, be assigned to the working capital account.

    Water Supply Development
    Following completion of the Water Supply study by Stephens, Thompson and Runyan, copies of which were distributed to the Regents on 9 September 1970, the Pullman-Moscow Water Resources Committee has continued to hold meetings to consider current alternative courses of action and pan the future program. A summary of the STR report is included in attached Exhibit VI.
    It is now recommended that the committee employ an Executive Secretary on a one-half time basis as follows:
    Description of Job- the Executive Secretary of the P-MWRC would serve as the main liaison person for the P-MWRC in its deliberations with federal, state and local agencies, civic groups and the genral public in seeking to achieve an alternative water resource to augment the areas ground water supply which is being over drawn. The secretary would be employed initially on a half-time basis with expenses being equally shared by the four entities. It is anticipated that the position would be needed for at least one year and possibly two or three years, depending on the turn of events.
    Qualifications- it is desirable that the candidate(s) for this position to have had training and experience in engineering, planning, public works and contacts with federal and state agencies, public officials, and the public at large. Communication techniques, both written and oral, are especially important.
    Estimated Operating Budget- Total $20,000
    The funding would be supplied in equal shares of a total of $5,000 each for the first ear and would be handled through the offices of the City of Pullman, as was done with the fees for the consultant’s study. Any future budget requests will be submitted prior to 1 December 1971.
    It is recommended that the University of Idaho continue to participate in this very important water development program.
    M/S Peacock/McCollum: that authorization be given for participation in the above outlined program to the extent of $5,000 for the year beginning 1 February 1971, subject to concurrent approval of the governing boards of the other three participating agencies.

    Track and Field Facility Contract
    The contract with C&S Builders for construction of the Track and Field facility was signed on 14 July 1970. Completion date was specified as 1 October 1970. As the work progressed unforeseen sub-surface drainage conditions caused delays and extra time and materials were required. Nevertheless, it is felt that the contractor did not diligently prosecute the work- with the result that they were unable to apply the ME-2 surface before the fall weather closed in. This means the track will not be available for your use during this academic year.
    On September 3 1970, the contractor requested a 30 day extension of completion date. This was granted.
    This matter has been reviewed with University attorney, Lloyd Martinson, who indicates that we are entitled to liquidate damages of $25 per day effective 1 November 1970. He further states “assuming that the Regents decide to invoke the liquidation damage provisions of the contract, I would suggest that you ask Regent to empower (the Bursar) or some other official to negotiate with the contractor, if necessary, and to waive the requirement if you deem it advisable and in the best interest of the University. Flexibility is advisable in these cases.”
    The bonding company and the contractor had been notified of our intent to assess liquidated damages of $25 per day. There is voluminous file on this matter. For information attached Exhibit VII includes a copy of Mr. Martinson’s letter of November and a copy of the contractor’s letter of December 3 stating his position.
    This matter will be reviewed at the Board meeting.
    M/S Peacock/Deaton: That the Bursar be directed to negotiate with the contactor to collect or waive liquidated damages, whichever in his opinion and judgment is in the best interest of the University of Idaho, and to bring the recommendation back to the Regents for their review.

    Property Exchange Negotiation- Farm House Fraternity
    Report is made of the fact that Mr. Joe R Acuff, MAI of Coeur d’Alene has made appraisals and made reports on the Farm House Fraternity property at the corner of Deakin Street and College Avenue and on Premeal French House, which is now leased to that fraternity group. Mr. Acuff’s appraised evaluation of the fraternity property is $39,500 and of Premeal French House (building only-not the land) is $195,000. Copies of his reports have been made available to the fraternity advisory board.

    Acquisition of Land- Gainford Mix Property
    About 80 acres of land previously used for pasture and feed for the College of Agriculture has been utilized in recent years for another university activities such as the Golf Course, Perimeter Drive, Athletics Complex, Baseball Field and Playfields. An additional 40 acres may soon be lost to the college by development of the proposed Shopping Center. As a result it is imperative that additional land be acquired.
    Bordering the farm to the north is a tract of 160 acres owned by Mr. Gainford Mix of Moscow. Mr. Mix has indicated a willingness to sell his property to the University for $800 per acre with a 2% down payment and the balance to be paid at a rate of $12,000 per year with interest on the unpaid balance of 6 per cent.
    The city of Moscow is interested in utilizing a portion of this property for a sanitary landfill operation, for which they would pay a fee. This is, however, a separate consideration-as Mr. Mix will not sell the property to be used for such purpose unless a new access road is available to that those hauling to the landfill do not pass his home.
    It is recommended that authority be grated at this time to negotiate with Mr. Mix and attempt to work out a specific agreement for purchase of this property.
    M/S Thatcher/McCollum: That the Bursar be authorized to negotiate with Mr. Gainford Mix for purchase of 160 acres of land as outlined above to return to the Board with the specific proposal including financial arrangement.

    Compensation for Extra Services for Sub-Professional Employees
    Re: University of Idaho Agenda for Regents meeting 12-13 November 1970, pp. 35-37.
    A statement of policy developed by the College of Agriculture to permit the payment of extra compensation to farm workers for overtime work in certain instances was approved by the Regents in November 1970. From time to time it is necessary that certain employees on campus also work overtime. For example, the Director of the Physical Plant has now recommended, in connection with revised plans for snow removal on campus, that “when it is necessary to work men in excess of 40 hours per week for the public safety of the University property, the men be paid at the rate of one and one-half times the regular pay rate.” It is recommended that the policy indicated below be approved for other than farm workers, since a policy has desired by the College of Agriculture has already been approved for such workers.
    M/S Thatcher/Swartley: That the President of the University of Idaho, or his designee, shall be permitted to authorized sup-professional employees of the University to be paid overtime pay at rate of one and one-half times their regular pay rates or to be awarded compensatory time at such increased rates, in special instances when he or his designee determines this to be necessary.

    Policy on Leave Due to Pregnancy
    Upon recommendation of the Faculty Affairs Committee and the Faculty Council, the University Faculty adopted the following revised policy on leave due to pregnancy at the meeting of December 14. If approved this policy would replace the statements related to leave due to pregnancy on page 54 of the 1970 draft of a revised University of Idaho handbook of Policy and Procedure.
    Leave Due to Pregnancy
    Any woman on the faculty or the teaching staff whose duties may be interrupted by pregnancy may be granted a leave without pay for an appropriated time during the semester or other academic session in which the birth of a child is to occur. Any accrued annual or sick leave may be coupled with this leave without pay.
    Any staff member not covered under the paragraph above, including members of the clerical staff, whose duties may be interrupted by pregnancy may couple all of her accrued vacation time with accrued sick leave time for leave due to pregnancy. If the staff member needs additional time off, leave of absence without pay may be granted not to exceed one month.
    M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That the revised policy on leave due to pregnancy, as shown above, be approved.

    1/28-30/71
    158-159
    Revised Bylaws of the Athletic Board on Control
    M/S McCollum/Peacock: That the revised Bylaws of the Athletic Board of Control of the University of Idaho, see attached Exhibit VIII, be approved.
    (This revision was approved unanimously by the Athletic Board of Control on October 7, 1970. The basic change is that the duties of the Chairman relative to internal athletic matters has been separated from outside athletic matters. That is, the Chairman will no longer be the faculty representative to the NCAA and the Big Sky Conference. These duties have been delegated to another person to be appointed by the President of the University. This splitting of duties is to make possible a longer period of appointment for the faculty representative to the NCAA and the Big Sky Conference that is desired for the Chairman of the Athletic Board of Control.)

    Amending Traffic and Parking Regulations
    At the meeting of December 14, 1970, the University Faculty approved minor amendments to the campus traffic and parking regulations. Complete copies of these amended regulations are attached as Exhibit IX and X.
    To assure the orderly operation of the University and to handle emergencies and traffic problems occasioned by special events, the Faculty Council at its meeting of December 17, 1970, recommended that the Board empower the President of the University, or his designee, to make temporary changes in the regulations.
    M/S Deaton/Engelking: That the revised traffic and parking regulations applicable to students and employees of the University, see attached Exhibit IX and X be approved, effective first semester, 1970-71; further, that the President of the University, or his designee, be empowered to make temporary changes in these regulations when necessary for the orderly operation of the University.

    159-160
    Revised Academic Calendar
    At the July 1970 meeting, the Board approved the University of Idaho’s academic calendars for 1971-72 and 1972-73. Since that time, the University Faculty has approved certain changes in the general academic regulations which, in turn, affect the calendar. The beginning and ending dates are not changed; however, dates for the removal of incompletes, etc., have been adjusted to conform to the revised general academic regulations.
    M/S Peacock/Thatcher: that the amended academic calendar for 1971-72 be approved as shown. Mr. Barnett and Mrs. Hampton voted no.

    1/28-30/71

    Circular Letters and Conference Calls
    M/S McCollum/Peacock: that the following circular letters be confirmed: #15 Liability Insurance and DDD insurance- not approved- replaced by Circular Letter #17, #17 Liability Insurance and DDD Insurance- see attached Exhibit XI.
    Circular Letter No. 17, dated 13 January 1970 Liability Insurance and DDD Insurance.
    Circular Letter No. 15, dated 31 December 1970 requested authorization to continue various types of insurance coverage for the University of Idaho. Regents raised questions and objections to University proposals concerning the specific recommendations made in the circular letter. These matters have now been discussed with the Regents, and we believe that the questions and objections have been resolved.
    The coverage for which we previously contracted expired on 31 December 1970. Until new bids are accepted, coverage is being extended under binder agreements with agents and underwriters who provided the previous coverage. The bills for this extended coverage will probably be more than the cost for the low bids for continued coverage.
    It is recommended that:
    A. The low bids reported in I, II, and III of Circular Letter 15, dated 31 December 1970 be accepted;
    B. In cases where the same bid was submitted by more than one agent, that one agent in each such case be selected by lot, after all agents are informed of the time and place where the drawing will be held and invited to attend or to send a representative; and
    C. A transfer and expenditure from the General Reserve of $21,178, plus any amount needed to pay bills for present binder agreements mentioned above, be authorized to pay for required premiums in excess of the amounts previously budgeted for insurance.

    Contract-US Bureau of Sports Fisheries and Wildlife
    M/S Thatcher/Barnett: That approval be given for the contract between the University of Idaho and the Bureau of Sports Fisheries and Wildlife, US Department of the Interior, for a “Study of the Effects of Fluctuating and Constant Temperatures on autecology of Steelhead Trout” during the period 1 December, 1970 to 30 June 1971. Total contract is $14,000 for the first of three years work on thermal ecology of salmonids. This contract carries no overhead provision for the University. The University Fisheries Unit defends this waiver of overhead because the Bureau is a cooperator and because “most of the proposed grant will be spent in equipping fisheries labs in the new Forestry Building.

    Report- Air Charter Agreement ASUI
    Report is made of the fact that the Associated Students have executed an aircraft charter agreement with Martin’s Aircharter Company-MAC of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, covering passage between Seattle and Amsterdam of 50 passengers on 14 June 1971 and return on 24 August 1971. This is a cooperative arrangement with Washington State University, under which WSU will charter the balance of the capacity of a DC-9 jet aircraft. All students, faculty and staff and their immediate families are eligible for this charter in a round trip cost of $270 each. This will be the third year for the program.
    Because of recent air disasters, we have investigated the safety record, pilot qualifications, inspection ratings, etc. of Martin’s Aircharter. Both the University of Idaho and Washington State University have been assured that Martin’s Air is fully licensed and qualified by the CAB and the Dutch Civil Airlines and to KML standards. We are advised that this information has been verified to the satisfaction of WSU officials by the Flight Operations officer of the Aeronautics Commission of the State of Washington.

    Designation of University Bursar as Treasurer of the Board of Regents
    Regents bylaws, Chapter II, State “The Treasurer shall be the State Treasurer of Idaho and shall be elected at the meeting next following the election of said official and shall hold this office as Treasurer of the Regents of the University for the same term as that of State Treasurer.” (Section 33-2809)
    The Idaho Code, Section 33-2804, requires the Regents to elect a treasurer. Section 33-2808 sets forth the duties of the office. Section 33-2809 authorizes the Board to elect the State Treasurer as treasurer of the Regents.
    It has been customary since 1927 to utilize the service of the state Treasurer as treasurer of the Regents. It now appears that there may be certain advantages in assigning these duties to the University Bursar. One such advantage be elimination of the warrant system and adopting direct check disbursements. A second would be the possibility of investing certain Regents funds and thus increasing University income.
    It is recommended that the regents bylaws be amended ant that the Bursar be made treasurer of the Regents, effective at the beginning of the next fiscal year, 1 July 1971.
    M/S Barnett/McCollum: That effective 1 July 1971 the bylaws of the Regents of the University of Idaho be amended, striking the existing wording in Chapter II, Paragraph 4, and substituting the following:
    Treasure: The Bursar at the University of Idaho shall be designated as Treasurer of the Board of Regents and shall hold this office during his term as Bursar.

    Remodeling Hays Hall Rooms for Graduate Students
    Re: Regents minute, 12-13 November 1970, page 144-145
    At the November meeting of the Regents, there was presented a general plan for utilizing space in Forney Hall and Hays Hall be converting them to graduate student facilities.
    A detailed study by the Residence Halls office and the Physical Plant Division has resulted in a recommendation that we proceed at this time to develop Hays Hall as indicated. Utilizing Physical Plant crews this work may be accomplished during weeks ahead at an estimated cost of $350 per room for painting, electrical work, carpentry and plumbing. Additional furniture including a combination stove-refrigerator-sink and cabinet with charcoal filter hood has been priced at $811 per room. Total Estimated cost of this project, which will provide 62 rooms (64 occupants) is $75,000. Source of Funds: Balance in Reserve for Dormitory Construction ($43,801.60), Dormitory and Café funds generated during the current academic year ($31,198.40). Approval is recommended.
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That approval be granted for the remodeling of 62 rooms in Hays Hall for the purpose of housing graduate students at an estimated cost of $75,000 as outlined above.

    Building Janitor Services Program
    Following a study of several months, Mr. Jim Crathorn, Superintendent of Custodial Services, has made a detailed report and recommendation for improving the organization and effectiveness of the physical Plant custodial services. Essentially the proposal provides for staffing on the basis of building square footage to be maintained by each custodian. Its effectiveness results from more and better supervision provided by additional leadmen. Funds for advances in salary for seven employees who are proposed for upgrading the supervisory-type positions will come from savings made by elimination of 1 ½ full-time custodial positions now budgeted. As the plan can be accommodated without any increase in total funding, it is recommended that the revised program is adopted at this time.
    M/S Barnet/Thatcher, that the revised organization of the Physical Plant Custodial Services be approved with the understanding that it is within the current available funding.

    Bids for the Purchase of $4,500,000 University of Idaho Student Fee Building Revenue Bonds Series of April 1, 1971
    The State Board of Education and Board of Regents of the University of Idaho met in a special public session in the Board room, Office of Higher Education, 413 Idaho Street, Boise, Idaho, on February 16, 1971, at 2:00 p.m., MST. There were present Elvon W. Hampton, President and the following members: J.D. McCollum, Vice President; John J. Peacock, Secretary; Steele Barnett; J. Kenneth Thatcher; John W. Swartley, M.D.; D.F. Engleking; and Donald F. Kline. Absent was M.T. Deaton.
    After the meeting had been duly called to order by the President and the roll called with the above result, the President stated that the purpose of the meeting was to be the reception of bids for the purchase of $4,500,000 University of Idaho Student Fee Building Revenue Bonds Series of April 1, 1971, notice of sale of which had been duly published and requests mad in such notice for the submission of bids. The President asked Mr. J. W. Watts, Business Manager and Bursar, University of Idaho, to open the bids and Mr. Rich Michels, Fiscal Agent, Idaho First National Bank, read the bids.
    Five bids were received and the highest and best bid was awarded to Bank of America, San Francisco, and Merrill, Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith, Inc., New York City. The net interest rate will be 5.7947 per cent.

    Change of Designation for Religion Courses
    In recent review of the courses in religion offered through the University, it was agreed that outsiders might infer from our catalog that the university is granting credit for courses which teach religion, instead of about religion. To clarify the situation, it is recommended that the subject field heretofore designated as “Religion (Rel)” be changed to “Religious Studies (RelSt).”
    M/S Swartley/Deaton: That, effective with the 1971072 academic year, the change of the designation of the “Religion” course section to “Religious Studies (RelSt)” be approved. (General Curriculum Report #4, January 26, 1971)

    Reorganization of Undergraduate Curricula in the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Range Sciences
    The College of Forestry, Wildlife and Range Sciences has traditionally regarded “forestry” as the curriculum offered by the College. The areas of emphasis under this curriculum have been designated as “options.” The Forestry faculty has agreed to pattern its curricular designations in the same manner as the rest of the University. To accomplish this, approval is needed for the reorganized list of undergraduate curricula ad options, as follows: Forest Resources BS for: Business, Management, Science; Range Resources BS; Wildlife-Fishery Resources BS; Wood Utilization BS for: Forest Products, Science-Engineering.
    M/S Barnett/Swartley: That the recommended reorganization of the undergraduate curricula offered by the college of Forestry, Wildlife and Range Science, as shown above, be approved, effective with the 1971-72 academic year. (General Curriculum Report #5, February 15, 1971)

    Correction of List of BS Degrees Offered by the College of Letters and Sciences
    At the Board’s meeting of January, 1971, approval was granted to offer both BA and BS degree in certain majors where only one of these degrees had been offered previously. The L&S major in “Law (Combined Program)” is currently offered under the BA degree. This major should have been listed among those for which approval was requested also to offer the BS degree. Thus, approval is requested to add the designation “BS” after this existing major.
    M/S Thatcher/Barnett: That the recommendation that the College of Letters and Science major in “Law (Combined Program)” be changed to read “Law (Combined Program)-BA, BS” effective with the 1971-72 academic year. (General Curriculum Report #5, February 15, 1971)

    Consolidation of Graduate Majors in Animal Industries
    Portions of the Departments of Animal Science, Dairy Science, and Poultry Science have been consolidated with Board approval into a Department of Animal Industries. To complete the consolidation, it is recommended that the separate graduate majors in Animal Science (MS, M.Ag.), Dairy Science (MS, M.Ag.), and Poultry Science (MS, M.Ag.) be consolidated into a single graduate major: “Animal Industries, MS, M.Ag.”
    M/S Munson/Swartley: that the recommendation that the separate graduate majors in Animal Science, Dairy Science, and Poultry Science be consolidated into a single graduate major in Animal Industries (MS, M.Ag.), be approved, effective with the 1971-72 academic year.

    Clarification of Graduate Majors Offered through the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Range Sciences
    When the first bulletin of the Graduate School was published some years ago, the authorized graduate majors offered through the College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Range Sciences was based on some areas of concentrations which had recently been undertaken by students. The list in the bulletin, though incomplete and incorrect, became frozen and led to many misunderstandings.
    Recent negotiations between the Graduate Council and the College have cleared things up, and the following corrected list of graduate majors is presented for approval. No new programs are involved. One of the results of this clarification will be to define the areas in which the doctorate is not offered.
    M/S Engelking/Munson: That the recommended corrections to the list of authorized graduate majors offered through the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Range Sciences as shown above, be approved, effective immediately. (General Curriculum Report #6, February 25, 1971)

    Addition of Information Science Courses
    At the present time statistics and computer science courses are offered in various departments in the College of Agriculture, College of Business and Economics, College of Education, College of Engineering, College of Forestry, Wildlife and Range Science, and the College of Letters and Science. When prospective students study the University of Idaho catalog, the offerings in statistics and computer science are not immediately obvious to them. To draw all of these courses together into one catalog section, it is proposed to introduce a new subject area to be known as “information Science (InfSc).” This will be accomplished by cross numbering the existing courses with IncSc numbers. Until such a time as a department of information science may be established, the courses will normally be listed in the official time schedule under their current departmental numbers only (e.g. Ag. 321 instead of InfSc 321). The principal advantage of the new course section will be to provide a unified listing of all informational science courses offered in the various colleges and departments. The standard course numbers which have been authorized in all subject areas will be held in reserve in the case of information science until funds are available. They will not be listed in the 1971 general catalog. The standard courses referred to are InfSci 200 (Seminar), InfSc 299 (Directed Study), InfSc 400 (Seminar), InfSC 499 (Directed Study), InfSc (Seminar) and InfSc 502 (Directed Study)
    M/S Barnett/Swartley: That the cross numbering of the existing courses with InfSc be approved. (General Curriculum Report #4, January 26, 1971)

    Addition of Elementary Physical Education Major
    For many years the University has offered the BS (Ed) degree with majors in physical education for men and physical education for women. These program emphasize secondary-school teaching. Students wishing to specialize in the teaching of physical education at the elementary-school level have majored in the elementary education and have elected necessary courses to give them a teaching major in physical education. So that specialists in elementary physical education may have this specialty shown on their diploma, it is proposed to add a major specifically designated “Physical Education: Elementary.” No new courses are involved. It is a change of emphasis only. These specialists will still take the core of courses required of all prospective elementary school teachers.
    M/S Deaton/Engelking: That the addition of the major, “Physical Education: Elementary (BS.Ed.)” effective with the 1971-72 academic year be approved. (General Curriculum Report #2, January 18, 1971)

    Amendments of General Academic Regulations
    At the Board’s January 1971 meeting the revised catalog section, “General Requirements and Academic Procedures,” was approved as shown in Exhibit II of the University of Idaho’s agenda for that meeting. Since the general revision was completed, certain problems have come to light which require minor adjustments:
    Amendment #1: Change regulation “H-1” by adding the following new item “e” to provide specific procedures for students who must take early fall examinations:
    e. A student who involuntarily enters active duty in any of the armed forces within one month of the last day of a semester is permitted, at the discretion of this academic dean, to take early final examinations. Other students, on an individual basis, may be permitted to take early final examinations for compelling reasons clearly stated in writing; however, requests for early final examinations for students not infoluntarily entering the armed forces must be approved by the instructor of the course, the chairman of the department and the dean of the college in which the courses is offered.
    Amendment #2: Change regulation “M-2-a” to assure that students understand that when they miss classes for field trips, etc., they must make arrangements with the instructors of the classes which will be missed:
    a. Official absences from classes for recognized activities, field trips, athletic, and similar events, require the prior approval of the appropriate University agent. Students are responsible for making their own advance arrangements with the instructors of the classes which will be missed.
    Amendment #3: Change in regulation “L-3” by adding the following new item “c” and by renumbering the existing items “c” and “d” to become “d” and “e” respectively:
    C. A student who has been reinstated may continue to be reinstated with the approval of this dean as long as he attains a 2.00 or better grade-point-average for each semester following his first disqualification.
    M/S Thatcher/Deaton: That the proposed amendments to the University of Idaho’s “General Requirements and Academic Procedures’ as shown above, be approved, effective with the 1971-72 academic year. (General Curriculum Reports #2 and #3, January 18 and 25, 1871)

    Adjustments in the 1971-72 Academic Calendar
    A minor revision in the approved academic calendar for 1971-72 is needed to avoid having all new and returning students arriving on the campus the same day. The University Faculty considered this problem at the meeting of February 11, 1971, and recommended that the registration days for fall semester be changed from August 30-31 to August 31 and September 1. This will provide an additional day for freshman pre-registration conferences and orientation, and our experience will eliminate one instructional day from the fall semester; however, sufficient instructional days remain to meet accreditation requirements.
    Moving registration one day automatically changes certain subsequent deadlines.
    M/S Swartley/Deaton: That the amended academic calendar for 1971-72, be approve.

    Physical Education Classes for Children During Summer School
    The Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation has requested permission to conduct a self-supporting summer program of physical education classes, without academic credit, for faculty and community children. The program will be on campus and consist of courses of about two to four weeks duration in such subjects as swimming, tennis, and scuba diving. Participating students will be charged about $5 per week to cover instructional costs and other direct costs to the University. This program will complement recreational programs for young people offered by the City of Moscow and has the support of City officials. The City now offers limited recreational programs during the summer, and this new program should help to keep young people in the vicinity of the campus occupied in constructive ways while they are out of school. Responsibility for assuring that the program is properly planned, staffed, executed and evaluated will be assigned to Dr. Leon Green, the head of the Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation of the College of Education.
    M/S Swartley/Deaton: That the University be authorized to conduct a self-supporting, educational-recreational program for children and teenagers on campus during the summer months consisting of various short courses of about two to four weeks duration.

    Budget Transfer Presentations
    The volume of budget transfers has grown in recent years to the point where it is questionable whether the board needs to have in its minutes a record of every transfer. This growth is largely due to the tremendous increase in the grants and contracts and other restricted funds which, of necessity, must have greater flexibility than other budgeted accounts. It is therefore recommended that, effective immediately, only transfer involving a change in estimated income and transfers from reserve accounts be submitted to the board for approval. This will provide a degree of exposure to the total budget and will eliminate the review of numerous routine transfers between and within departmental budgets.
    M/S Peacock/Engelking: That only budget transfers involving changes in estimated income and transfers form reserve accounts need be submitted for Regents approval.

    Budget Adjustments- Agricultural Experiment Station
    Congress has recently made available additional funds to the Agricultural Experimental Station for research on rural development in the following amounts: Hatch, $23,978, Regional Research, $12,825. At the present time, a number of the departments on campus and some branch stations are in need of funds to complete commitments this fiscal year. Dean Kraus and his staff, in consultation with the Business Office, have developed a total plan of budget adjustment, incorporation of the new funds and some accumulated reserve funds to meet these needs. A copy of the detailed proposal is shown in Exhibit IV. Included in this proposal is an allocation of $7,000 of Regional Research funds to a contract with Oregon State University for a cooperative regional project on Regional Rural Development. This has been approved by CSRS.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That the budget adjustments for the Agriculture Experiment Station as detailed in Exhibit IV be approved, and that specific approval be given for entry into a cooperative agreement with Oregon State University to accomplish certain research objectives in rural development of this region.

    Sale of Wool-Sheep Experiment Station
    Due to weakness in the wool market, which has existed for several years, disposal of the wool clip form the Sheep Experiment Station has been difficult. Shortly after the January Regents meeting, a recommendation was submitted by station personnel that the following program be followed for disposal of approximately 62,000 pounds of greased wool to be shorn in May 1971:
    (1) About 2,000 pounds of greased wool from Pacific Breeding groups is to be scoured (individual fleeces) at the University of Wyoming in connection with the breeding program (clean fleece selection) at Dubois. Resultant scoured wool will be available for sale. If possible, this scoured wool will be sold to Deseret Industries, Woolen Mill, 4400 South State Street, Murray, Utah. If sale to this firm is not possible, recommendations on sale of this scoured wool will be provided at a later date.
    (2) About 60,000 pounds of graded greased wool, not designated for specific research after shearing, will be for sale. It appears advantageous to again have sale of this wool handled by Western available Wool and Growers Services Company, 404 West 7th South, Salt Lake City, Utah. In order to take advantage of any activity in the wool market in early 1971, it would be advisable to enter into a sales agreement with this firm as soon as possible. Upon completion of such an agreement, that firm would be in position to offer station wool on a description basis to prospective buyers.
    Due to the long delay before the 1 April meeting, this plan has been approved by the Bursar. Regents confirmation of this action is requested.
    M/S Swartley/Engelking: that disposal of the 1971 wool clipped from the Sheep Experiment Station, as outlined above, be authorized and confirmed.

    4/2/71

    Application for Research Grant- Waste Treatment
    M/S Deaton/Thatcher: That approval be granted for the filing of an application by the Department of Chemical Engineering for a research grant in the amount of $49,521 from the US Department of the Interior, Federal Water Pollution Control Administration, for a project entitled “Pressure Areation for Water Treatment” during the period 1 July 1971 through 31 December 1973. Total Project cost is estimated at $58,350, with the University furnishing $8,964 of that amount.
    In taking this action, it is agreed by the Regents that if a federal grant for the project is made on the basis of this application or on the basis of any provision requirements and conditions of the regulations governing grants for water pollution control authorized by the Water Pollution Control Act, as amended and with such additional conditions as the Commissioner may impose prior to or at the time of the grant award.

    Registration Fee for Vocational Education Teacher Conferences
    One academic credit will be granted to persons who complete the Vocational Education Teacher Conference on campus at the University of Idaho from 7 to 11 June 1971. The Director of Summer School recommends that the registration fee for persons who attended the conference be $10, rather than $20, which is charged for each academic credit in other summer school courses to resident students. The reason for this request is that the University of Idaho will not have to pay instructional salaries for presenting this course.
    M/S Barnett/Munson: That the registration fee for persons attending the Vocational Education Teacher Conference June 7-11, 1971 shall be $10.

    Confirmation of Executive Committee Action Regarding 706 Deakin Street
    This house, immediately east of the student union building, is an old two story dwelling owned by the University and scheduled to be demolished in 1975 to permit extension of a parking lot. In accordance with a proposal discussed with an approved by the Regents executive committee for the University in a telephone canvas on 3 March 1971, if the agreement works out in a way entirely satisfactory to the University, we propose to rent the entire house, and some used furniture to be placed in it, has been worked out with a group for the months of April and May 1971. If the agreement works out in a way entirely satisfactory to the University, we propose to rent the entire house to the group after May 1971. A nominal rent of about $100 per month will be secured for this house to cover the costs to the University to include utilities, except electricity and telephone, which will be billed directly to the renters.
    This action is undertaken as an extension of the broad policy decision of the Board (April 1970) to approve the development of a special program for Native American minorities which program included the provision of special facilities for the American Indian program. It is anticipated that similar facilities probably should be provided for the Foreign Student organization, but since this group involves numbers significantly over 150 rather than merely 19, as in the Black Student Union, the problem of finding space which is adequate to the needs of such a group is of somewhat different dimensions. The committee on Intercultural Affairs of the faculty currently has this item under study.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the approval be given to rent property at 706 Deakin Street to the Black Student Union at a nominal rate to cover costs, continuation of the agreement being contingent upon the renters complying with standards, regulations and conditions prescribed by the University Administration.

    Rental of Forney Hall to Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity
    On the night of March 5, 1971 fire caused extensive damage to the ATO fraternity house on the campus. No injuries were suffered, but the men lost most of their personal belongings. Fortunately, space is available for these 55 men in old Forney Hall.
    M/S Peacock/Deaton: that a portion of Forney Hall be leased to the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity for the period of 8 March 1971 through 30 May 1971 at the rate of $55 per day under terms and conditions of a lease agreement on file in the University Business Office, with authority for the Bursar to sign said lease agreement on behalf of the Regents.

    Proposed Contract with Idaho Department of Employment
    The Idaho Department of Employment (DOE) has proposed the initiation of a new program (Operation Hitchhike) on an experimental basis. It will be designed to serve ten counties of the State selected by the DOE (Boundary, Benewah, Clearwater, Idaho, Custer, Butte, Teton, Oneida, Caribou, and Bear Lake). The program will attempt to expand and extend man power services already available to urban residents to rural areas, and deliver these services by the most economical means consistent with need and quality of service. To do this, the DOE wishes to use the Idaho Cooperative Extension Service (CES) to deliver the services, with policy guidance and program material to be supplied by the DOE.
    The entire cost for this program will be borne by the Doe. That department wishes to work out an agreement with the CES for a fifteen-month period starting April 1, 1971 whereby (a) the CES will be responsible for day-to-day supervision, fund disbursement, and completing reports as required, and (b) the DOE will be responsible for evaluation, coordination and functional manpower program training and assistance in the field. The DOE plans to pay the CES about $155,665 to cover the cost of 10 ½ full-time persons to be employed plus related travel and per diem costs. The DOE has also agreed to pay the University 15 per cent of this amount ($23,350) to cover overhead costs related to this involvement. This amount of overhead is deemed adequate in this specific case since the University will not be required to furnish buildings, utilities or facilities. Participation in this program should permit the University to be of service to the State and is therefore recommended.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: that approval be given for the University Bursar to develop, in conjunction with representatives of the Idaho department of employment and Idaho cooperative Extension Service, a Forma contract with provisions generally as explained above, and to sign this contract on behalf of the Board of Regents.

    Investment of Surplus Funds
    In accordance with the expressed desire of the Regents, a more active program of investing temporarily idle funds has been initiated by the Business Office. On 9 February, $500,000 of Regents funds from accounts 3,4 and 5 were placed in 90 day Certificates of Deposit with the Idaho First National Bank at 6 ¾% interest. This was done after consultation with the First Security and the Bank of Idaho, neither of which could meet the interest rate at the time.
    The controversial $100,000 account in the Bank of Idaho was invested in a 90 day certificate of deposit on 8 January 1971 at 5 ½% interest. Numerous smaller accounts have been invested for various periods, depending on the requirements for liquidity.
    Also, on 9 February, $1,000,000 of the Business Manger’s fund was placed in federal funds through the First Security Bank on a 15 day basis at 3 ¾%. Federal fund yields vary from day to day. Due to the requirement that we meet a payroll in excess of $1,000,000 each month, it is necessary to have this fund available at the beginning of the payroll period. Business Manager’s funds available for short term investment in March were $600,000. The April amount will be substantially lower, due to distribution of fees and payments on bonds and notes due 1 April.
    About three months ago, the First Security Bank offered to establish an arrangement whereby we would invest business managers funds in Time Certificates of Deposit. These could be pledged to the Bank as security for short term loans that could be issued and repaid on a day to day basis. Interest on these loans would be 2% above that of the Time Certificate of Deposit. This arrangement would allow the University to get maximum advantage of the “float” on this account.
    Although this program, in the long term, might not be the best arrangement, it is believed to be better than what we have been doing. Authority is therefore requested to utilize this investment program for the next several months, meanwhile studying other possible approaches to the temporary investment program.
    M/S Thatcher/Deaton: That the Bursar be authorized to invest monies held in the Business Manager’s Fund in Time Certificates of Deposit with further approval to draw temporary loans against them to meet daily operating requirements as outlined above.

    Proposed Withdrawal from Liquid Asphalt Antitrust Case
    On December 11, 1970 the Regents approved a suggestion made by an Assistant Attorney General of the Stat of Idaho. He suggested that the Office of the Attorney General represent the regents in a suit involving an alleged conspiracy to fix prices of liquid asphalt during the period 1956 through March 1970. He indicated that this suit would not involve cost or potential liability to the University of Idaho.
    Subsequently, the University Engineer and Bursar concluded that (a) the University of Idaho had not been sufficiently involved in the purchase of liquid asphalt in road construction to warrant participation in this antitrust lawsuit, and (b) the cost for the University to try to collect necessary information to continue in this matter would more than the very few dollars reimbursement which it might eventually collect. After discussing this situation with the Assistant Attorney General Handling this case, he indicated that, “It would be best if we could obtain a resolution from the Regents authorizing the withdrawal of the University of Idaho as an Intervenor-Plaintiff in this case.”
    M/S Swartley/Deaton: that whereas University of Idaho officials have determined that the University was not sufficiently involved in the purchase of liquid asphalt or road construction to warrant participation in the Liquid Asphalt Antitrust Case (State of Idaho v. American Oil Co., et al.) the regents hereby authorize the withdrawal of the University of Idaho as an Intervenor-Plaintiff in this case.

    Travel Allowance- Mileage on Personal Vehicles
    M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That the mileage allowance for personal vehicles to be paid by the university be increased from the existing 10¢ per mile for the first 5000 miles and 8¢ per mile thereafter to 10¢ per mile for all allowable mileage. This will bring the University into conformity with the allowance of other state agencies.

    Selection of Auditor
    As authorized by the Regents last January, discussions have been held with representatives of five of the most respected national certified public accounting firms to determine which firm should be selected to audit the University of Idaho for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1971. Representatives of each of these firms have spent two or more days at the University visiting with the President and other University personnel and reviewing the University’s operations, procedures and accounting internal controls. Formal audit proposals have been received from each of the firms. These proposals, and what we have learned about each firm and the extent of the audit it would propose to conduct, are now being evaluated to determine which auditor would provide the most penetrating and valuable audit of the University.
    When a firm is selected for recommendation to the Regents, an attempt will be made to have the partner of that firm present his audit proposal at the April Regents meeting. Regents approval will then be sought to sign a contract with the firm. The firm will need to begin preliminary work no later than May 1, 1971.
    M/S Deaton/Peacock: That the firm of Price Waterhouse and Company of Seattle be approved as the auditing firm selected in relation to the above information.

    Property Exchange- Farm House Fraternity
    Re: Regents minutes 26-31 July 1970, page 185-28-29 January 1971, page 149
    After review and consideration of the property appraisals reported to the Regents after the January meeting, the Idaho Farm House Club, Inc., has made a firm offer of $150,000 plus their existing property at the corner or Deakin Street and College Avenue for purchase of Permeal French House. Terms of this exchange are immediate transfer by the fraternity to the University of the Fraternity property and payment of the $150,000 indebtedness over a twenty year period with 5% interest on the declining balance at the rate of $11,925 per year. A copy of their letter of offer is attached, Exhibit V.
    The Fraternity purchase from the University is of the building only. The University will continue to own the land and will lease the site to the fraternity, after the indebtedness has been cleared, on the same basis as is now in effect for other living groups on Nez Perce Drive.
    Approval of this sale of purchase is recommended.
    M/S Munson/Swartley: That the exchange of property with the Idaho Farm House Club, Inc., as outlined above and in Exhibit V be approved; that the Bursar be directed to have the necessary contract drawn and that he be further authorized to sign the contract on behalf of the Regents.

    Easement- Washington Water Power Company
    M/S Swartley/Peacock: That an easement be granted to the Washington Water Power Company for construction of a 13,000 volt power line from the WWP north sub-station across from the University North Farm property to the Perimeter Drive area. This line is being constructed by the power company to serve the west side of the campus at such time as the University installs a second sub-station in that area. It replaces an existing line of lower voltage.

    Faculty/Staff Relations with Regents
    The 1961 edition of the University of Idaho handbook of Policy and Procedure contained the following policy statements which was carried forward into the 1970 draft of a revised Handbook:
    Faculty/Staff Relations with Regents
    No faculty or staff initiates any dealing with members of the Board of Regents without specific instructions from the Board prior to approval of the President, who is kept informed of such dealings.
    Upon recommendation of the Faculty Affairs Committee, Faculty Council, and the University Faculty, it is proposed that the above policy be deleted from the Handbook because any regent is free to contact any member of the faculty or staff of the University and any citizen of the state of Idaho may contact a public board, if the board will consent to hear him. It is believed that the policy statement is unnecessary.
    M/S Deaton/ Thatcher: That the deletion of the policy statement relative to faculty/staff relations with Regents from the University of Idaho Handbook of Policy and Procedure be approved.

    4/2/71
    184-185
    Policy on Collection of Faculty/Staff Parking- Violation Fines
    Faculty/staff unpaid parking-violation fines, after the appeal period, shall be deducted from salary payments, or collected by similar administrative procedures.
    The need for the above policy grew out of a rather serious disregard for parking-violation obligations on the part of the faculty and staff. There was general recognitions that if the students must meet their obligations in this area (or have their transcripts held up), the faculty and staff be similarly held to their obligations.
    M/S Munson/Deaton: That the above policy on collection of faculty/staff parking-violation fines be approved.

    4/2/71
    185
    Proposed Amendment of the Constitution of the Faculty of the University of Idaho
    When the Constitution of the Faculty (Chapter VIII of the Bylaws of the Board of Regents) was drafted, provision was made for a non-voting “adjunct faculty,” constituted of individuals holding designated administrative or service positions in the University. During the deliberations on the proposed Constitution, the section covering the voting faculty was expanded to permit designated administrators and service officers to hold regular, voting membership. Thus, the provision for the adjunct faculty was no longer needed and probably should have been deleted at that time. In the years since the Constitution was approved by the Regents, no members have been appointed to the adjunct faculty, and it is now recommended that the provision be removed.
    M/S Peacock/Deaton: That the proposed amendment to the constitution of the Faculty of the University of Idaho (Chapter VIII of the Bylaws of the Board of Regents) which would delete section 3 (Adjunct faculty) from Article II be approved, and that subsequent sections of this article be renumbered accordingly. (note) (The Constitution of the Faculty is printed on page 6-13 of the 1970 draft of the revised University of Idaho Handbook on Policy and Procedure.)

    185-186
    Leave for Annual Military Duty
    On June 5, 1967 the Regents approved the present policy at the University of Idaho regarding military leave. It states that those persons on 12 month appointments who are authorized less than 22 workings days of annual leave shall be allowed leave with pay for military training not to exceed 15 calendar days in any one fiscal year. Although the policy does not specifically so state, we have charged annual leave to persons taking two weeks military training who are allowed 22 working days of annual leave. Three people are involved.
    This procedure is apparently in violation of the Idaho Code (46-216). Boise State College and Idaho State University reportedly follow the policy outlined in the State statute, which is as follows:
    All officers and employees of the state of Idaho who shall be members of the national guard or who shall be reservists in the armed forces of the United States, shall be entitled to leave of absence from their respective duties without loss of pay, time or efficiency rating on all days during which they shall be engaged in field training ordered or authorized under the provisions of the national defense act; provided that this shall not apply to any period of time spent in active service of the United State, except that a period of fifteen days or less in reserve training in any one calendar year shall not be considered time spent in active service of the United States, for the purposes of this act.
    To conform with procedure followed by other State agencies and institutions and to comply with the Idaho Code, it is recommended that University of Idaho policy be as indicated below.
    M/S Engelking/Barnett: That all University employees on 12 month appointments who are required to report for military field training in the National Guard or as reservist in the armed forces for the United States, shall be allowed leave with pay for such military training, not to exceed 15 calendar days in any one year.

    Faculty Exchange
    1. It is requested that a system of exchange of faculty with other institutions be authorized. Such a system would allow University of Idaho Faculty members to serve at regular pay on another campus in exchange for equal service being provided the University of Idaho without cost to the University of Idaho. Advantages of such a system would be:
    A. Broadened professional perspective of University of Idaho faculty members involved.
    B. Access to a visitor’s point of view by the University of Idaho students and faculty.
    2. Initial operation of the faculty exchange will be the assignment of Dr. Michael E. Browne, Professor of Physics, to work at the Technical University of Munich during the academic year 1971-72. In exchange, the University will receive the services of Dr. Teraturo Nakamura, of the Department of Physics of the University of Tokyo. Dr. Browne will work in the laboratory of Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Rudolf Massbauer. Dr. Nakamura will teach Dr. Browne’s courses at the University of Idaho. Dr. Nakamura’s salary will be paid by the National Science Foundation. Dr. Browne’s salary will be paid by the University of Idaho. No travel expenses will be charged to the University of Idaho.
    M/S Thatcher/Barnett: That a faculty exchange system as described above be approved.

    Employee Medical Insurance- Renewal of Policy
    The contract with New England Mutual Life Insurance Company providing major medical insurance for University employees has been in existence since December 1956, and has proven to be most satisfactory. The existing rates were established 1 May 1967 as follows: Employee $7.84 per month; spouse, $11.10 per month; all children, $2.94 per month; dependent children 19-24 years of age, $1.54 per month. The university pays 75% of the premium for the employee only.
    Increasing medical and hospital cots have finally caught up with this program and the company, indicating a loss ratio of 97% during 1970, is requesting a 10% increase in the premiums. It is recommended that in lieu of increasing the premium to our employees and adding an additional burden to the budgets at this time that the increase be taken from the accrued claim stabilization reserve for the next policy year.
    M/S Deaton/Thatcher: That the major medical insurance policy carried with New England Mutual Life Insurance Company be renewed for one year effective 1 May 1971 with a premium increase of 10% in the monthly rates, said increase to be deducted from the claims stabilization reserve.

    Use to be Made of Old Hays Hall
    Re: Regents minutes 12-13 November 1970, pp 144-145 and 28-30 January 1971, pp. 178-179
    At the November and January meetings, general plans were presented for using the old Hays Hall building. Approval was secured to remodel rooms in this building to provide single student housing on a room without board basis. The Dean of the College of Law and Graduate Dean had pointed out the desirability of providing dormitory housing for graduate students and law students where a quiet, mature studious atmosphere prevailed. The plan was to provide such housing in old Hays Hall and to rent all of the rooms, about 20 on each of three floors, to male graduate students and law students.
    On February 26, the Graduate Council indicated that if sufficient need existed, some of the accommodations in the old Hays Hall building should be provided for women graduate students and law students. On 11 March, a faculty-student committee on university housing reported that it might not be possible to fill one of the floors of the building with single women who are in graduate school and law school, but that there are about 378 single women student now on campus who are 21 years old, an one of the floors in Hays Hall could be filled with such women. Approval is requested to rent rooms in the building as indicated below.
    M/S Munson/Engelking: That two floors in the old Hays Hall building be rented to men students and one floor be rented to women students, priority for renting these rooms being as follows: (1) graduate students and law students, (2) persons over 21 years of age.

    Addition of Major in Economics for the Ph.D. Degree
    It is proposed to add “economics” to the list of majors authorized under the University’s Ph.D. program, effective upon approval. Initially this new Graduate School program will be restricted to students in the Department of Agricultural Economics of the College of Agriculture because the existing facilities and staff available in that department and the cooperating areas make it possible to add a limited number of doctoral candidates without incurring additional costs. Except for the uniform catalog entries already authorized for all areas offering doctoral studies, no new courses are involved. (The uniform entries referred to are: Econ and AgEc 600, Doctoral Research and Dissertation, 601, Seminar, 602, Directed Study, and 603, Independent Study.) Resent staff and facilities would permit economics, economics of agriculture marketing and processing, range resource economics, and water resource economics. University agencies which would be cooperating in the program include the College of Agriculture, the College of Business and Economics, the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Range Sciences, and the Water Resource Institute.
    At the present time, the University offers programs leading to the master’s degree in agricultural economics, economics and forestry economics. Students may also concentrate at the master’s level in the economic aspects of mining and engineering.
    Rather than to move toward separate doctoral programs in each of these areas, it has been recommended that the university utilize all fo the facilities and staff involved in various aspects of economics to provide a joint doctoral-level program. The Department of Agricultural Economics- the first of the areas to request doctorate-level study- has concurred in this concept, and the concept has the approval of the Graduate Council, the University Curriculum Council committee, the Faculty Council, and the University Faculty.
    There is a growing demand in Idaho and in the nation for the doctorates in resource economics. Such companies as the Boise-Cascade Company and Potlatch Forest, Inc.; agencies such as the Idaho Water Resources Board, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the Bureau of Land Management are requiring highly-trained economists to supplement their resource management. Economic expertise is an integral part of the complex issue of optimum resource use and development. It is generally conceded that resource economists are in short supply and command higher salaries that their counterparts in most other disciplines, e.g. a recent study showed that agricultural economists enjoyed a salary twenty-five percent larger than staff in agricultural colleges.
    Further, for the University to conduct contract research it si necessary to supplement the staff with trained personnel who will stay for the duration of the contract or grant period. Doctoral students fill this need. Institutions not offering the doctorate are at a disadvantage in securing contracts and grants because they cannot offer assurance of the necessary personnel, and usually are considered less “capable” because they lack the doctoral program.
    The University of Idaho now has a highly qualified faculty in economics. The Department of Agricultural Economics consist of twelve faculty members holding the Ph.D. Degree and one USDA affiliate professor. All have had experience in research and teaching, and in graduate programs. The Department of Economics in the College of Business and Economics has eight faculty members, most of whom have the Ph.D. degree. Additional specialists are in the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Range Science, and in the Water Resources Institute. As noted above, with the existing facilities and staff, no additional costs will be incurred in initiating this doctoral program.
    M/S Barnet/Deaton: that the addition of “economics” as an authorized major under the Ph.D. degree, together with the standard catalog entries mentioned above which are authorized in all areas offering doctoral studies (Econ and AgEc 600, 601, 602, and 603) be approved, effective immediately. (General Curriculum Report #3, January 25, 1971).

    Addition of Major in Home Economics (Inter-Institutional) for the Ph.D. Degree
    It is proposed that the University of Idaho enter into a cooperative agreement with several other universities (listed below) to provide an inter-institutional program in home economics leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. The program will be coordinated by inter-institutional coordinators who will serve on a “Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Cooperative Ph.D. in Home Economics Advisory Committee.”
    The University of Idaho at the present time does not have the staff to offer the Ph.D. in the field of home economics. However, through the cooperative arrangement it would be possible for the University of Idaho student to enroll in the program leading to the degree. The University of Idaho would be the student’s “home” institution and the bulk of his or her program would be taken here. Student advising would include participation from the institution which would actually award the degree- the “host” institution. The degree itself would cite both the “host” and “home” institutions.
    Initially, the University of Idaho would participate only in the area of child development and family relations. The host institution for this program would be Oregon State University.
    A numbered course (H Ec 604), as requested above, is required to permit transfer of the student from the home to the host institution. No costs will be incurred.
    Administrative costs may be incurred as a result of the necessity for intensive communication, but WICHE anticipates that these will be largely defrayed by the educational grant. In any event, these will be such that they can be absorbed in the existing departmental budget.
    Tuition and fees will be paid to the home institution (the University of Idaho), except for the time spent at the host institution (Oregon State University). The fees for this time will be transmitted through WICHE to the host institution.
    This Inter-Institutional program would permit the University to participate in a Ph.D. program for its students with no increase in staff or facilities. The cooperating institutions, in a sense, are the “university” for this program. Home Economics administrators in the western universities are concerned that doctoral-level programs in Home Economics (nutrition, foods, child development/etc.) are not producing sufficient graduates to meet the needs of either education or industry. Also, no single institution can offer the full range of home economic disciplines and potential graduate students are often limited in their ability to relocate in order to pursue studies not available at their present residency. This proposal circumvents that problem and permits a resident of Idaho to pursue the major part of the program in the state rather than move to another university for the full training.
    Participating Institutions: University of Arizona, Montana State University, Colorado State University, University of Hawaii, Oregon State University, Washington State University, Utah State University, and the University of Idaho.
    Participation in this program is recommended by the faculties of the Department of Home Economics and the College of Letters and Sciences, as well as by the Graduate Council, the University Curriculum Committee, and the Faculty Council. If the recommendation is approved, the University of Idaho would be listed among the “Home” institutions after “Child Development/Family Relations” in the chart above.
    M/S Swartley/Deaton: That the recommendation that the University of Idaho participate in the WICHE Inter-Institutional cooperative Ph.D. program in Home Economics as outlined above, be approved; further, that the addition of the major in Home Economics (Inter-institutional)” for the Ph.D. degree be approved, effective immediately.

    Scholar in Religious Studies
    For many years the University has offered and granted resident credit in courses in religious studies. These courses were approved through regular faculty channels and also approved by the Board of Regents. University courses in religious studies were currently taught by leaders in organizations adjacent to the campus who are not on Board appointment, except for one individual who has been designated an “affiliate professor” without remuneration.
    After lengthy deliberations on this matter, the Religious Studies Committee, the Faculty Council, and the University Faculty have recommended that as soon as feasible the University should assume full responsibility for its own courses in religious studies (those in the University catalog and for which resident credit is grated). It is recommended that religious studies become an integral part of the scholarly pursuits of the University itself so as to assure that these courses meet regular academic standards, are proudly and culturally based, and are not offered for the purpose of winning converts to a particular religion or sect.
    At its meeting of February 11, 1971, the University Faculty approved a recommendation that the University add a faculty position for a scholar in religious studies. The faculty understood that it may not be possible to add this position for the 1971-72 academic year because of financial problems. It is also understood that when the position is added it will be administered with one of the existing academic units of the University until such a time as it may become possible to develop a department of religious studies.
    M/S Peacock/Engelking: that the request for a faculty position for a scholar in religious studies be approved in principal.
    M/S Kline/Barnett: to amend the above motion as follows: … and submit it to the Board through its regularly establish procedure.

    Change in Programs- Animal Industries
    Dr. Auttis M. Mullins, head of the Department of Animal Industries, has recommended substantial changes in the departmental programs concerning Dairy, Beef, and Sheep. His detailed recommendations and a statement of Dean J.E. Kraus are included in Exhibit IV.
    M/S Barnett/Swartley: That the operational changes proposed by the Department of Animal Industries, as detailed in Exhibit IV be approved and that the income from the Sale of the animals be deposited in the Animal Science Revolving Fund account for herd replacement and purchase of animals for research and teaching purposes.

    Request for Waiver of Fees for Part-time Naval ROTC Students
    The Professor of Naval Science at the University of Idaho has requested that WSU students be permitted to enroll in Navy ROTC courses at the University of Idaho without payment of fees. The arrangement has the approval of WSU officials. It could result in minor increases in administrative costs, for example, in the Registrar’s Office, but will not result in any increase in instructional costs- the present Navy ROTC program at the University of Idaho, although some students have expressed interest in the program. Previously, one student from WSU was enrolled in this program.
    It may later be advisable to work out joint cooperative agreements with WSU officials concerning enrollment in ROTC programs at the two institutions; or, depending upon enrollments, it may later become advisable to reinstitute the collection of fees from WSU students who enroll in Navy ROTC courses at the University of Idaho. However, at this time it seems that very few students from WSU will be involved. Additional students may help strengthen our Navy ROTC program, and this action could help to promote further, desirable cooperative educational program with WSU. Approval of the request is recommended. The request, and reasons for it, are further explained in Exhibit V.
    M/S Barnett/Swartley: that WSU students be permitted to enroll in Navy ROTC courses at the University of Idaho without payment of fees.

    Applied Music Fees
    Students who enroll in music courses are now required to pay additional fees to cover the cost of their music lessons. Dr. Floyd Peterson, Director of the School of Music, recommends changing the fee to $25 per credit hour. At this time the fee is $15 for 1 credit and $45 for 2, 3 and 6 credits in various cases, as indicated on p. 178, Regents minutes for July 1970.
    To make charges and procedures more compatible with those at comparable institutions, it is also recommended that the above special fees only be assessed when a student takes a music course as an elective, when the course is not specifically required to complete requirements for his degree.
    M/S Swartley/Munson: That the Applied Music Fees at the University of Idaho be established in accordance with the above recommendations, effective with the fall semester of 1971.

    Application Fee for Graduate Students and Law Students
    Students often send applications to several graduate schools and then subsequently decide which school to attend. Consequently, it is becoming customary for an application fee to be assessed. No such fee has been instituted at the University of Idaho. To help defray the cost of processing applications and providing materials to applicants, it is recommended that a $10 non-refundable application fee be charged with each application to attend graduate school or law school, with the provision that this charge may be applied toward the payment of student fees in the semester for which the applicant is accepted.
    M/S Swartley/Deaton: That the above fee be instituted effective June 1, 1971.

    Cancellation of Old Student Accounts
    For almost fifty years it has been a practice at the University of Idaho to retain a memorandum account of all unpaid charges assessed to students. These range from old notes and registration fees (during the 1930’s students were permitted “deferred registration”) to departmental breakage and loss charges, traffic fines and bad checks charges. These have never been set up as assets on our balance sheet. However, many collections were made by requiring payment of that account before a transcript of grades would be issued. In 1967 that requirement was modified so that accounts of $10 or less would not be collected before issuance of a transcript.
    The Legislative Auditor has, in partial summary, recommended that all accounts receivable four (4) years or older be written off or, if in a major amount, legal collection efforts be made; also, that all accounts five (5) to (10) years old with no activity that are in an amount less than $10 be written off immediately. We do not fully concur in that recommendation. The four year period seems to short in view of the fact that many students extend their period of education over a much longer period. Accordingly, the following recommendation is made.
    M/S Swartely/Thatcher: That authorization be granted for the Bursar to eliminate present and future accounts from the student ledger in accordance with the procedure recommended above, with the understanding that prior to eliminating any such records, approval be secured from the external auditor.

    Potato Cellar- Tetonia Branch Experiment Station
    M/S Engelking/Munson: that approval be given to develop plans and specifications and solicit bids for construction of a potato cellar at the Tetonia Branch Experiment Station. This is a replacement for the old existing cellar which is in such a state of repair as to be unusable beyond this year. The cellar is required for use in connection with the potato breeding and foundation seed stock programs at the Tetonia Station. The 1971-72 budget includes a $30,000 item for this purpose.

    Sale of Land to City of Moscow
    The City of Moscow is interested in purchasing from the University 80 acres of land located immediately north and adjoining Elks Club Golf Course about 1 ½ miles east of Moscow, for the purpose of developing a landfill garbage disposal site. This property was recently appraised by Joe R. Acuff, MIA, of Coeur d’Alene, at $900 per acre.
    M/S Munson/Thatcher: That action be held until report is receive from the executive committee for the University of Idaho.

    Lease of Houses- Aberdeen Branch Experiment Station
    On the Aberdeen Experiment Station are four Residences. Superintendent Owens Occupies one of these and the others for many years have been furnished to the farm foreman and the irrigators. With change of personnel in these latter positions, the person employed now own their homes in the area and do not wish to more into the station residences.
    In order to prevent the deterioration that occurs in vacant housing, Dr. Owens has requested permission to rent these residences to selected non-university personnel until such time as they are needed by our own employees. He further request that the rental income be placed in an agency account to be used for maintenance of residences on the station, as he does not wish to allocate existing station funds for maintenance of these units.
    M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That approval be given for the rental of the otherwise vacant farm residences on the Aberdeen Branch Experiment Station to non-university personnel with the income to be deposited in an agency account to be used for maintenance of residences.

    Proposed Discontinuance of Regulation of Women's Hours
    Upon recommendation of the Associated Students of the University of Idaho, Campus Affairs Committee, Faculty Council, and the University Faculty, it is proposed that, upon approval by the Regents, the University shall discontinue the regulation of women’s hours.
    For some time the University has been moving, step by step, away from rigid controls over the personal lives of students. While specifications as to hours for women students are now quite minima, a vestige of control remains. As was stated during the Faculty Council’s discussion on this subject, the University probably does have the right to continue this control; however, it may be “unwise.” Some women students take the position that since men’s hours are not controlled, the regulations reflect on the morals of women students.
    In her presentation to the Faculty Council, the Dean of Women supported this change, and the change was supported overwhelmingly in various polls conducted by campus organizations and in the votes taken in the Campus Affairs Committee, the Faculty Council, and the University Faculty.
    M/S Munson/Engelking: That the recommendation for the University of Idaho discontinuance of regulation of hours for women be approved, effective immediately. Motion carried with a 5 to 4 vote.

    Requirement for Compliance with Department of Agriculture Regulations "Program for Equal Opportunity in the Idaho Cooperative Extension Service"
    A federal requirement in the management of Cooperative Extension Services program indicates care must be taken to provide equal employment opportunities for all regardless of race, color, creed, sex or national origin and that guarantees of compliance be forwarded to the Secretary of Agriculture. A “compliance chain” has been worked out by Dean Kraus in accordance with directives received by the College and these we feel meet all requirements which the Department of Agriculture has imposed. The protocol is presented in Exhibit VIII. Approval of the protocol is recommended.
    M/S Thatcher/Deaton: That the “Program for Equal Opportunity in the Idaho Cooperative Extension Services” be approved.

    Proposed Change in Annual Leave Allowance for Members of the Non-Professional Staff
    At the present time the University’s Handbook of Policy and Procedure (p. 52, second paragraph) provides the following allowance for annual leave for the non-professional staff:
    “Employees performing secretarial, clerical and service duties (non-professional, non-academic positions) on full year appointments ear vacations at the rate of one working day per month for the first ten years of employment. This si increased to one and one-fourth days per month for the eleventh through the fifteenth year, and one and one-half days per month for the sixteenth through the twentieth year. After twenty years of service they are allowed twenty working days per year.”
    It is proposed to change the above statement to bring it into conformity with Section 9 of Senate Bill 1246, effective July 1, 1971. This proposal has the support of the Faculty Council. If the change is approved, the above paragraph will read:
    “Employees who are not members of the faculty or the professional staff accumulate eligibility for paid annual leave at the rate of one working day per month for the first five years of service; one and one-fourth working days for the sixth through the tenth year; one and one-half working days per month for the eleventh through the fifteenth year; and one-and three-fourths working days per month for all employment after fifteen years.”
    M/S Deaton/Munson: That the change recommended above be approved, effective July 1, 1971.

    Approval of Courses at Lewis-Clark Normal School
    On March 23, 1971 an evaluating committee from the University of Idaho visited the campus of Lewis-Clark Normal School for the purpose of approving for transfer of credit to the University of Idaho courses taught at Lewis-Clark Normal School during academic year 1970-71. Upon recommendation of the evaluation committee, it is proposed that the courses listed in Exhibit IX be approved for transfer of credit to the University of Idaho as they were taught at Lewis-Clark Normal School during 1970-71. (Only one course was not approved- P.E. 430L- Practicum in physical education, 1 credit, Carlson)
    M/S Barnett/Deaton: That the courses listed in Exhibit IX be taught at Lewis-Clark Normal School in 1970-71 be approved for transfer of credit to the University of Idaho.

    Proposed Change in Payroll Procedures for Academic Year Appointees
    For over forty years the University of Idaho has followed the procedures of paying the faculty who are employed for the academic year in ten equal monthly installments, beginning September 1 and ending June 30. The tenth (June) check is normally available at commencement time.
    The change in our academic calendar for 1971-72 makes reconsideration of this procedure desirable. With the first semester starting in August and ending at the Christmas holiday, and the second semester beginning in mid-January and ending in May, there is, in the opinion of the Business manager and the faculty, justification for moving our payroll dates ahead one month and paying in ten installments from August 1 through May 31.
    This proposed change in procedure was approved by the University Faculty, April 27, 1971.
    M/S Deaton/Munson: That the recommendation that academic year appointees be paid in ten installments from August 1 to May 31 be approved, effective with the 1971-72 academic year.

    Addition of General Proficiency Certificate Programs
    In 1969 the Board authorized the University of Idaho to offer lower-division certificate programs at the National Reactor Testing Station, Idaho Falls, leading to the “Certificate of General Proficiency in (name of field).”
    At the January 1971 meeting the Board confirmed the early authorization.
    The Resident Director of the University’s NRTS Education Program has recommended that three new certificates be added in that program: Certificate of General Proficiency in Commercial Purchasing, Certificate of General Proficiency in Office Operations, and Certificate of General Proficiency in Secretarial Science.
    Under faculty-approved procedures, these new programs have been approved by on campus academic departments and the University Curriculum Committee (April 20, 1971). Additional costs to the University itself are not involved.
    M/S Barnett/Munson: That the addition of the three general proficiency certificates mentioned above be approved, effective immediately.

    Ph.D. Foreign Language Requirement
    Upon recommendation of the Graduate Faculty and the approval of the University Faculty, it is proposed to change the Ph.D. Foreign-Language requirement as follows:
    From:
    A high proficiency in reading one foreign language is a minimum requirement for the degree for Doctor of Philosophy. For the languages available through the Graduate School Foreign Languages Testing Program (currently German, Russian, Spanish, and French), the candidate offers a minimum score as set by the Graduate addition to the minimum established by the graduate council.
    To:
    Foreign-Language requirements for the Ph.D. degree, if any, including the method of examination and the level of competency, are determined by the department offering the major. Essentially, the change is to leave to the department the determination as to which research tools (foreign language, statistics, etc.) a Ph.D. student must complete. This change is in conformity with similar changes at major institutions throughout the United States. In his presentation to the University Faculty, the Dean of the Graduate School took the position that those best qualified to judge whether or not language competency is essential for a particular candidate are the faculty members in charge of his program of studies
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: that the recommended change in the Ph.D. foreign-language requirement be approved, effective with the 1971-72 academic year.

    Application for Grants
    Elements of the university continually apply for grants from federal agencies. The Bursar of the University, who is designated as the official to sign all contracts which bind the University, checks and approves such requests for all grants. Grant proposals which are submitted are reported to the Regents as routine agenda items. Considerable time and effort are required to complete some proposals and usually the department submitting a proposal is anxious to have it reviewed, signed and sent immediately.
    A page of the form used to request grants from the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration is attached as Exhibit I. These specific requests contain a unique requirement that the application has been authorized to file the application by formal action of the governing board. The certified copy of such formal authorization must be submitted with each grant request.
    To expedite the submission of applications for grants to this agency, the College of Engineering and Graduate Dean have requested that the Regents formally delegate the authority to apply for such grants to a local University official. If this authority were delegated to the Bursar, the University would follow the same procedure in requesting grants from the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration that it does when requesting grants from other federal agencies.
    M/S Swartley/Deaton: That the Bursar of the University of Idaho is authorized to file applications to the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration on behalf of the Regents of the University of Idaho. The Board of Regents further agrees that if any such Federal Grants or amendment thereof, the University will comply with all the applicable requirements and conditions of the regulations governing grants for water pollution control authorized by the Water Pollution Control Act, as amended and with such additional conditions as the Commissioner may impose prior to or at the time of the grant award.

    Collection of Money from Students
    Currently the University of Idaho’s Handbook of Policy and Procedure includes the following statement:
    Sales by Faculty to Students
    University policy prescribes that faculty and staff members will not collect money from students for sale of books, syllabi, or services. All such sales are to be made through the University Student bookstore.
    Recent experience has indicated that the University needs a policy which is more explicit. To meet this need, the following statement is recommended as a replacement for the one printed above.
    Collection of Money from students
    Members of the faculty and staff are not permitted to collect money from students for the University for the services or for the sale of books, syllabi, or similar instructional materials. All such collections from sales are made through the University bookstore or other authorized agency with the following exception: A faculty or staff member who is teaching an extension course or participating in similar continuing education programs may be authorized to serve as an agent for the university bookstore or other authorized agency of the University or of the state of Idaho for the purpose of delivering books and collecting money, provided that all funds collected are transmitted to the university bookstore or other authorized agency, and the faculty or staff member does not in any way gain personal profit from the transaction.
    M/S Swartely/Thatcher: That the Recommended statement, “Collection of Money from Students,” as printed above, be approved as a replacement of the policy headed “Sales by Faculty to Students.”

    Reorganization of Department of Communications
    A study of the organization of the University faculty is currently in progress in the Faculty Council. One of the problem areas thus far defined is that of Communications. It is anticipated that a rather thorough-going proposal for reorganization will be forth coming within the next year. Meanwhile, it has been determined through the study, and through the procedure of review of department chairmen, that Radio-Television and Journalism are not working well together in a single department. It is not anticipated that the problems can be corrected within the present departmental structure. It is therefore recommended that the Department of Communications be abolished, and two departments, the Department of Radio-Television and the Department of Journalism, be created, each with a chairman from within the present faculty.
    M/S Munson/Thatcher: That the Department of Communications be abolished and replaced with the following structure: Department of Radio-Television, Gordon Law, Chairman; Department of Journalism, Bert C. Cross, Chairman.

    Purchase of Moscow Mountain Recreation Equipment (Tamarack Ski Area)
    Reference: Regents Agenda 26-31 July 1971, page 56
    During the summer of 1970, the Directors of the Moscow Mounting Corporation offered to sell the buildings and equipment of the Tamarack Ski Area to the Regents for $213,000. The Business Office recommended that the offer be rejected. No action was taken by the Board. Since that time, the assets of the corporation have been over by the United State Small Business Administration, which held a $140,000 loan obligation on the assets.
    The SBA has indicated a willingness to sell this property to the University. A joint recommendation developed by the General Manager of the ASUI and the Head of the Physical Education Department state that we should acquire it and that we should enter a bid of approximately $25,000 for the equipment, buildings, access and rights to the land use.
    The land is adjacent to the University owned forest and belongs to the City of Troy and the State of Idaho. It is believed that the existing lease arrangements can be extended on this 188 acre parcel. The current sale value of the buildings and equipment is estimated at $37,000. If the area is to be properly utilized, a power line should be brought in.
    It is believed that acquisition of this property would be advantageous to the University of Idaho student body. Authority is requested to offer the SBA $25,000 for it. Source of Funds: Student Facility Fund.
    M/S Swartely/Deaton: That authority not be given to the University to offer the Small Business Administration $25,000 for the buildings and equipment at the Tamarack Ski area in accordance with the buildings and equipment at the Tamarack Ski Area in Accordance with the above proposal.

    Track and Field Facility Contract
    Re: Regents minutes January 1971, page 155
    At the meeting on 28 January, the Bursar was directed to negotiate with the contractor on the Track and Field Facility, C&S Builders, as to the amount of liquidated damages to be recommended back to the Board for review.
    A meeting was held on 7 May 1971 with the contractor, the engineer and representatives of the University in attendance. At that time, the conractor was advised that there would be recommended to the Board the assessment of liquidated damages in the amount of $4,500. This is based on a six month delay in the completion of the job and justified by the added costs incurred by the Department of Athletics which had to operate without the facility during the spring of 1971.
    The contractor does not agree to this assessment and again states his position as outlined in his letter of 3 December 1970.
    M/S Swartley/Deaton: that as a result of their failure to complete the Track and Field Facility on schedule C&S Builders be assessed liquidated damages under the terms of the contract in the total amount of $4,500.

    Report- Swimming Facility Change Orders
    Pursuant to instruction from the Regents at their 28 January 1971 meeting, the law firm of Randall & Bengston of Lewiston was retained on 8 February 1971 to review our position concerning change orders G-2, E-1, and M-2 and the responsibility of architects Culler, Gale, Martell, Norrie & Pettis in the matter.
    On 2 April, Randall and Bengston requested that the University attempt to determine as accurately as possible the difference between the bid price and what the bid price would have been if additional work had been incorporated in the original plans. To accomplish this, and upon the recommendation of Dean H.S. Smith, of the college of engineering, Mr. John J. Peeples, Associate Research Professor of Civil Engineering and a registered professional engineer in Idaho, was employed to review the entire matter. His report, dated 22 April 1971, was mailed to the attorneys on 23 April.
    To date, no advice has been received and no further action has been taken.

    Policy Concerning Tuition for Persons on Active Duty
    Section E of House Bill 609 passed by the second regular session of the 40th Legislature amended Chapter 37 of Title 33 of the Idaho Code and changed the definition of residence for tuition purposes. The change provided that a person would not be required to pay nonresident tuition if he were “a member of the Armed Forces of the United State stationed in the State of Idaho on military orders.” This legislation was scheduled to be amended to add the wording, “except for those individuals assigned in the State of Idaho for the primary purpose of attending an institution of higher education.” This apparently did not get taken care of by the last legislation, but from our discussion of the subject, it is our impression that this has been the intent of the legislature and the Regents.
    Out-of-state tuition payments are made by the Navy for nonresidents the Navy assigns to the University of Idaho for the purpose of attending school. About 125 people will be in this category next school year. To permit the collection of about $100,00 in out-of-state tuition, it is recommended that the following resolution be passed at this time and that action be continued to amend present legislation concerning this subject as mentioned above.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That members of the Armed Forces of the United State stationed in the State of Idaho on military orders for the primary purpose of attending an institution of higher education who are not legal residents in the State of Idaho shall continue to be required to pay out-of-state tuition.

    Revision of Course Section for General Catalog
    Since the biennial catalog was prepared early in 1969, the Board has approved many changes in the curriculum and degree programs of the University of Idaho. Among the approved changes were the revised procedure for handling previously subtitled courses, the uniform entries for seminar, directed study, and work shop courses, as well as modifications in our course numbering system to provide for the 600 series.
    Because of the large number of editorial changes resulting from the above, as well as the number of changes in course descriptions, etc., the entire course section of the 1971-72 general catalog is presented for review and approval. Only Board-approved subject areas are included, and the levels of the offerings are reflective of Board actions (the interstate doctoral program in home economics, the doctoral concentration in agricultural economics, etc.).
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the revised course section of the 1971-72 general catalog, Exhibit I, be approved.

    Operation of Swimming Facility
    In accordance with Regents’ authorization, the swimming facility of the University of Idaho has been open to the general public at specified times. Charges have not been made for use of the facility; however, use of the swimming pool by the public has increased operating costs. Most of these costs have occurred because of the requirement to employ additional lifeguards and to have other people present to supervise the use of the facilities. Study on this situation resulted in the report attached as Exhibit VI. It proposes that nominal charges be made for the use of the swimming pool by all persons other than University students. The charges specified in the exhibit are expected to generate about $15,000 per year which will be used to pay the salary of a manager for the swimming pool, lifeguards, and other expenses resulting from the use of the swimming pool by other than University students.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the schedule of fees specified by Exhibit VI be instituted for the purposes cited above.

    Bank Accounts- The Regents of the University of Idaho
    In January 1971 the Regents took action to provide that the “Bursar at the University of Idaho shall be designated as Treasurer of the Board of Regents and shall hold this office during his term as Bursar.”
    In accordance with this action, report is made of the fact that all bank accounts in the name of the Regents of the University of Idaho, Bursar, University of Idaho or Business Manager, University of Idaho have been:
    1. Renamed according to the fund integrity concerned as either:
    a. Regents, University of Idaho
    b. Bursar, University of Idaho
    2. Authorized for the signature of the Bursar of the University of Idaho.
    Provision has also been made to properly allow for all items in transit. (119)
    4.93 Safety Deposit Box- Securities
    The University of Idaho maintains a safety deposit box at the First Security Bank of Idaho at Moscow for the Safekeeping of securities. The present arrangement requires that the President and Bursar together go jointly to the box to deposit or remove items from it. This arrangement is not convenient, and all times results in delay in depositing securities and items which would be placed in the box. It is proposed that henceforth any two of the following three individuals may have access to the university safety deposit box at the Moscow Office of the First security Bank of Idaho:
    1. Sherman F. Carter, Bursar
    2. H.E. Slade, Business Manager
    3. G.A. Anderson, Controller

The organization has indicated that I plans to deposit $200 annually for this purpose with $150 being utilized to build a principal and $50 to be awarded as a scholarship annually beginning in the spring of 1972. In about 1977, when the principal reaches an amount that will earn about $50 annually, contributions will no longer be made to increase the principal.
    M/S Swartely/Thatcher, that approval be granted to establish the above mentioned scholarship program and that the Bursar be permitted to deposit the principal for this program in the consolidated investment trust.

The Price Waterhouse auditors have also stated that such work should be completed by the earliest possible date. Permission is requested to sign a contract with C.J Bellamy and Company of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for the design-development and cost estimation of the needed work. The amount of Mr. Bellamy’s fee for this design development work should amount to about $1,500.

    Remodeling of South Wing of Administration Building
    There is an urgent need to get additional space for use by the Computer Center.
    A new building would be most suitable for this facility if it can be provided. However, such a new building would probably cost about $600,000 and before proceeding with plans for such a building it seems advisable to ascertain whether or not the space now used by the College of Law could be made suitable for a computer center. The estimated cost for architectural work to accomplish this design development is $3,600 and it is requested that permission be granted to sign a contract with C.J. Bellamy and Company of Coeur d’Alene for the completion of this project.
    M/S Munson/Thatcher: That the authority be given to the Bursar to sign the contract with C.J. Bellamy and Company to determine the feasibility of remodeling the first floor and basement floor of the south wing of the Administration building.

    Revision of Civil Rights Policy
    At the Board’s November 11-13, 1965 meeting the following civil rights policy was adopted for the University of Idaho:
    Practices on regulations which might be termed discriminatory on the basis of race, color, or national origin shall not be condoned or permitted. This shall apply in all areas of the University’s operations, including personnel hiring, student admissions, assignments in housing units, use of dining halls, classrooms or other facilities, and all such student, faculty, or staff endeavors as may be commonly regarded as University sponsored or University sanctioned. This policy does not limit the right of organizations to determine their own membership, except in those cases in which disqualification is related solely to race, national origin, or color.
    To update the statement by adding “religion” and “sex” as non-discrimination areas and by omitting the final sentence as no longer necessary, the University Faculty recommends that the following revised statement be approved:
    Practices or regulations which discriminated on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, or sex are neither condoned nor permitted in any area of the University’s operations, including personnel appointments, student admissions, housing assignments, use of dining halls, classrooms, or other facilities, and all endeavors of the faculty, staff and students which may be commonly regarded as sponsored or sanctioned by the University. However, classification of persons based upon the differences between men and women or between classes which is not irrational, capricious, arbitrary, and which is utilized to accomplish a lawful purpose is permitted.*
    The final sentence is for clarification and preserves distinction between discrimination and classification. The Idaho Supreme court has stated that classification is proper, provided it has reasonable and lawful objective (Reed v. Reed, 93 Idaho 511). That is, sororities can refuse to admit males and fraternities can refuse to admit females. Also, students with substandard grades can be excluded from honor societies and other groups having minimum grade requirements, etc. This is classification and is proper and not discrimination.
    M/S Munson/Thatcher: That the proposed revision of the University of Idaho’s Civil Rights Policy (together with the footnote) be approved as printed above.

    7/1/71
    122-123

    Diploma Fee- A diploma fee of $5 is now charged all applicants for a degree from the University except that $7.50 is charged for the Juris Doctorate diploma. It is proposed that henceforth, the fee for all diplomas be $10, that an additional $5 be charged when a special diploma insert must be made, ant that the present $5 charge for applications for diplomas made after dates specified be retained.
    Thesis Binding Fee- This fee is presently $3, while the actual cost to the University is about twice that amount. A thesis binding fee of $7 is now proposed.
    Charge for Transcripts- the University presently furnishes each student five copies of his transcript of credits without charge, after which $1 is charged for each copy. It is proposed that each student be furnished one free copy of his transcript and thereafter be charged $1 per copy.

    Renaming of Hays Forney Hall Buildings
    These buildings were used as women’s dormitories until the Theophilus tower was occupied. At that time the women in both of these halls moved into parts of the Theophilus Tower and received approval to take with them the Hays and Forney Hall designations. At this time two floors in the Theophilus Tower are referred to as Hays Hall, and two floors in the Tower are referred to as Forney Hall. It is thus desirable to rename the old buildings on Elm Street.
    These buildings are connected and are used for a variety of purposes to include the offices of the Alumni Secretary and an Alumni Lounge. Permission is requested to rename the entire two building complex as the “University of Idaho Alumni Center.”
    When a building is renamed, all effort should be put forth to return the name plaque or memorial to a member of the family for which the building is named.

    Transfer of the Department of Psychology to College of Letters and Science
    The curriculum in Psychology has developed more in the direction of a basic science than in the direction of an adjunct to the Education curricula. Therefore, upon recommendation of the Faculty Council, the Department of Psychology, and the Deans of the Colleges of Education and of Letters and Science, it is recommended that the Department of Psychology be transferred from the College of Education to the College of Letters and Science. (Most counseling and guidance courses will remain in the College of Education. Most previously approved to be changed from Psychology to Guidance in 1972-73 will not be changed effective with the academic year 1971-72).
    M/S Deaton/Thatcher: That the department of Psychology be transferred from the College of Education to the College of Letters and Science, effective October 1, 1971.

    Settlement of Indebtedness
    Robert Cameron is presently being paid $9,500 per year by the University of Idaho. Last year his duties required that he live in a University dormitory, and his approved salary was $9,200. He was informed of this and the fact that $8,200 would be paid in cash and that he would be furnished board and room worth $1,000. Last year Cameron was actually paid $9,200 cash in addition to being provided his board and room. The board and room cost was charged to the Office of Student Affairs. To properly settle this matter, $1,000 should now be collected from Cameron. He has requested that he be permitted to settle his indebtedness by (a) having one month’s leave which he has earned cancelled and $791.66, his rate of pay per month, credited toward the indebtedness, and (b) having $30 per month deducted from his pay until the remaining $208.34 of the indebtedness has been paid. This seems to be a fair method of settlement, since we should not have made the excess payments to him.
    M/S Munson/Thatcher: That approval be given to settle the indebtedness of Robert Cameron as explained above.

    Utilization of Traffic Fines
    Last fiscal year the University collected $12,444 in traffic fines. $11,900 of this amount committed to pay for $100 and $200 scholarships, awarded largely on the basis of high scholastic achievement. Because of such factors as raising administrative costs, increased administration because of the need to assure due process during traffic hearings, and the acute financial position of the University, it is requested that henceforth about one-half the money collected as traffic fines be used for the cost related to the administration and the other half continue to be used for scholarships. About $14,000 in traffic fines is now expected to be collected this fiscal year, and if the approval is granted, the money will be sued approximately as follows: $7,000 for scholarships; $3,500 for irregular help and other expenses in the police and plant protection budget; $1,000 for parking decals; $1,000 toward the cost of Financial accounting and $900 for clerical help for the traffic committee.
    M/S Barnett/Engelking: That about one-half of the Traffic Fines collected by the University be used for scholarships and the other half be used to pay for administration related to traffic enforcement.

    Architect Contract-Performing Arts Center-Report
    Re: #1 Board minutes, 12-13 November 1970, p. 151, #2 Board minutes, 10-11 December 1970, p. 95
    Reference #1 authorized the development of a three phased construction plan for a Performing Arts Center and retention of the architectural firm of C.J. Bellamy being predicated upon the availability of funds collected from public subscription to underwrite the work.
    Reference #2 reported the development of a contract to provide for the payment of architect’s fees in the amount of $57,378.45 through the completion of working drawings for Phase I of the construction. Of this amount, $12,153.45 has been paid to the architect.
    After continuing study, to assure construction of the most usable facility at minimum cost it has been determined that we can properly scale down plans for phase I and use a Thrust Stage rather than a Proscenium Stage as previously planned. Some of the architectural work which has now been done can be used and some cannot be, with the new concept.
    Report is made of the fact that, under the authority granted by Reference #1 above, a new contract is being executed with Bellamy and Co. to proceed with the development of working drawings for Phase I of the construction under the new concept and that the amount of the new contract will be $53,293.75. The breakdown of this fee is shown by Exhibit III attached.

    Furniture and Equipment- Premeal French House
    At the time we received Regents’ approval to sell the Permeal J. French House to the Idaho Farm House Club, Inc., no formal arrangements were made for the sale of furniture and equipment.
    The total cost basis of the furniture equipment involved is $12,674. The bulk of these items are in excess of ten years old. Some of the items are seventeen years old. Normally, in our cafeterias we utilize a depreciation schedule of from ten to fifteen years. Accordingly, it is our feeling that a reasonable sale price would be 25 per cent of cost. The Idaho Farm House Club, Inc., agrees with this valuation and has made a firm offer of $3,168.50 for these furnishings. They state they would prefer to make this payment to the University over a three year period.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That approval be given for the sale of furnishings and equipment of the Permeal J. French House to the Idaho Farm House Club, Inc., at a price of $3,168.50.

    Policies Concerning Salaries for Summer School
    It is proposed that Summer Session instructional salaries be paid at the same rate as other summer salaries. A person on twelve-month appointment is now paid 11/9 of the salary he would be paide on a nine month appointment. This reflects the differences in service required—eleven months and nine months, respectively. An eight-week full teaching assignment would constitute 92% of two-months service. Consequently, it is proposed that summer session salaries be paid at the rate of 20.44% of the previous academic year’s salary for full-time service for eight weeks. It is contemplated that this be accomplished in two steps. The rate for the summer of 1971 was 18%. For 1972 it is proposed that the rate be 19.22%, with the full 20.44% being achieved in the summer of 1973.
    M/S Thatcher/Barnett: That, subject to the availability of funds, summer session salaries be paid at the rate of 20.44% of the previous academic year’s salary for full service for eight weeks, with full budgetary implementations to be reached by the summer of 1973.

    Establishment of Policy Concerning Accounting for Property
    We are presently developing plans to physically identify and to account for the University’s movable furnishings and equipment.
    As a part of these plans, it is essential that we establish guidelines to be used in the determination of which items will be recorded as part of this inventory. It is recommended that items for which such accountability is to be maintained have minimum value of $25 and a life expectancy of at least two years.
    M/S Deaton/Thatcher: That the above described guidelines be adopted.

    10/7-8/71

    Disposition of Sheep at the Dubois Station
    In accordance with the recommendation of the College of Agriculture, approval is requested to dispose of 340 head of lambs to Wilson Beef and Lamb Company of Ogden for slaughter purposes of which one half of each carcass will be utilized at Utah State University for carcass studies; sale of 25 to 50 cull ewes to the local slaughter plant; sale of approximately 55 head of lambs to Ellisson Packing Company of Ogden, Utah, for carcass data; disposition of 10 head of lambs to Utah State University for physiology reproduction studies; and the sale of 10 head of lambs to the University of Wyoming for multiple purpose selection studies.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That the above proposal for disposing of sheep be approved and that henceforth the Bursar be permitted to approve recommendations form the College of Agriculture to dispose of sheep, with the understanding that each such case will then be routinely reported to the regents and the understanding that he will clear any questionable cases with the Regents prior to authorizing such sales.

    Agreement with County Commissioners of Jefferson County
    Approval is requested to sign an agreement with the county commissioners of Jefferson County. The agreement would provide for the commissioners to pay up to $12,000 toward certain research being accomplished by the Water Research Institute of the University.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That the Bursar be permitted to sign the above mentioned agreement.

    Agreement with Moscow School District No. 281
    M/S Engelking/Thatcher: That an agreement between the Regents, acting through the College of Education, and Moscow School District No. 281 for the 1971-1972 school year be approved. It is the purpose of this agreement to make the early childhood center classrooms and equipment of the College of Education, University of Idaho, available to the Moscow School District No. 281 to use for offering an instructional program for children between the ages of five and seven years, under a program which will be of benefit to the College of Education.

    Remodeling Project in Student Health Services Clinic
    In the Student Health Center there are three doctors’ suites, each consisting of a consultation room and two small examining rooms. One of the suites is entirely too small for proper use. The consulting room is so small that only one visiting person can sit in it at a time. The two examining rooms are too small to adequately examine a patient on an examining table. Also, the privacy of the doctor and his patient cannot be properly observed because of the size of the rooms. The estimated cost to rectify this situation is approximately $6,800. The money is available in the restricted current Infirmary Reserve account.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That approval be given to secure bids on the above mentioned project.

    10/7-8/71

    Request for Approval to Secure Area within Business Office
    Various auditors have pointed out that certain critical records within the Business Office are vulnerable and that a secured area should be constructed to protect them against theft and fire and to protect the cashier’s area. The Regents previously authorized the accomplishment of preliminary architectural work which has now been completed. It is now estimated that the rest of this project will cost approximately $40,000. While this is an unbudgeted project, it is sufficiently urgent that it should be undertaken without delay by reprogramming the use of other funds necessary.
    M/S Peacock/Barnett: That approval be given for the completion of working drawings for securing an area within the Business Office and bidding this project with the understanding that Regent’s approval to accept any specific bid for construction of the project will be secured in the usual manner.

    10/7-8/71
    80-81

    Change Orders Involving Swimming Center
    The disposition of certain change orders and final payment to the architect for construction of the University Swimming Center has not yet been formally settled. The work was done and some payments have been maid and some have been withheld. For over one year, studies have been conducted involving various attorneys and engineers to determine who should properly pay for this work. Since becoming University Attorney, Mr. John Warren has worked to resolve these matters. We now recommend that the regents approve the action shown below. We believe that settling these matters in this way will be in the best interests of the University and will be acceptable to the mechanical contractor and architect.
    M/S Deaton/Barnet: that the claim of Babbitt Electric and Refrigeration Company for $3,041.10 on change order M-2 for the University Swimming Center be comprised and settled for $200 and that the expense of Change Orders G-2, M-2, and E-1 totally $42,719.55 and resulting from the architects’ redesign of a mechanical system for the University Swimming Center be apportioned between the University and the architect as follows:
    Culler, Gale, Martell & Norrie $12,719.55; University of Idaho $30,000.
    As the University has withheld $11,051.23 from the final payment of the architects’ fees, the net effect of this action will be that the architect will now pay the University $1,668.32, an the University will pay the mechanical contractor $200.

    Request for Permission to Purchase Property
    During recent years a considerable acreage of land in the vicinity of the University campus previously used by the College of Agriculture for teaching and research programs has been used for other purposes. Most of this reassignment has been as a result of expansion of the University facilities for other uses.
    Land formerly used by the College has been reassigned for the following purposes: Construction of Nez Perce Drive, 25 acres; expansion of University golf course, 30 acres; development of Perimeter Drive from the Pullman highway and development of the University track, football stadium, parking area, and need to move the poultry center to provide for the Performing Arts Center, and further expansion of athletic facilities, 40 acres; assignment of land to US Forest Service for white pine genetic project, 40 acres; potential use of 40 acres of land now used for dairy teaching and research for future commercial development.
    Thus a total of approximately 175 acres of land previously used by the College is now or shortly will be no longer available.
    In addition to the above, there will be a need to construct a new swine facility in the near future and it will be necessary to locate it on land away from campus.
    The reassignment of this land to other University uses has resulted in insufficient land on the University farm to adequately maintain the herds and flocks of beef cattle, dairy cattle, poultry, sheep and swine for our teaching research programs; and for research and teaching on animal health and diseases.
    An additional 163.43 acres of land which adjoins the University farm is currently available and for reasons indicated above, this land is urgently needed to conduct the livestock programs at the University of Idaho by the College of Agriculture.
    The above-mentioned land which the University wishes to acquire was appraised last March at $700 an acre. The owner of this property is willing to sell it to the university at $800 an acre. We felt that it is worth this much to the university and request permission to arrange to buy it at that price. The appraisal report noted the fact that property transactions had been made in this area from $500 per acre to about $1,000 per acre within the last few years and the value of the land is increasing. The appraisal we received for the golf course property owned by the university was also less than what we have been offered for the property.
    Permission is requested to use about $12,000 available in the Home Station budget for agricultural research to make an initial payment on the property with the understanding that the University will assume possession of the property as of 1 September 1972 and will have the option up to that time to indicated whether it intends to purchase 80 acres or the entire parcel of 163.43 acres at the price of $800 per acre. The owner has indicated that he will be willing to receive payments for this property over about a fifteen year period. We are now confident that we can work out a sound financing plan for securing the 80 acres and believes that we can work out a suitable plan for securing this entire parcel of land before 1 September 1972.
    M/S Peacock/Engelking: That the Bursar be permitted to execute a contract which provides and initial payment of about $12,000 and acquiring of either 80 acres of 163.43 acres of land for use by the College of Agriculture at a price of $800 per acre, with the understanding that regents approval will be secured prior to determining whether the University should buy the 80 or 163.43 acres.

    Change in English Composition Requirement
    Upon recommendation of the University Curriculum Committee and the Faculty Council, the University Faculty, at the meeting held October 21, 1971, approved the following changes in the required English composition courses and in the general regulation covering English composition. The number of credits required remains the same; however, instead of taking both semesters of English composition during the freshman year, students will take the second semester during either the sophomore or junior year.
    1. Change Eng. 101-102 into two courses as follows:
    a. Eng. 101 English Composition (3 cr.) Rhetoric and expository writing. Students in need of special instruction may be assigned to do additional work in the English clinic or in reading techniques.
    b. English 201 Language and Literature (3 cr) (102). Fundamentals of literature emphasis on writing expository papers in support of elementary literary analysis and research. Not open to freshmen. May be taken in the sophomore or junior year. Prereq: 101 or permission of dept.
    2. Change in general academic regulation “J-3-a,” on page 57 of the 1971 catalog, to read:
    a. English. Eng 101, English Composition, and Eng 201, Language and Literature. This six-credit requirement may be satisfied in one or more of the following ways:
    i. Earn the required credits by taking Eng 101 and 201. Credit in the former Eng 1 or 102, or the equivalent of these courses from another recognized institution, satisfies the requirement. When English Composition courses taken at another institution result in in a smaller number of credits that the six semester credits required here, the transfer student will be referred to the English Department for a determination of any additional course work in English Composition to be completed at the University of Idaho.
    ii. Successfully challenge Eng 101 and/or 201 under the procedures for credit by examination outlined in regulation “D-4”above. When completed in this manner, credit and grade of P in Eng 101 and/or 201 will be recorded.
    iii. Demonstrated equivalent proficiency, as certified to the registrar by the Department of English. The equivalency will be noted on the student’s transcript; however, no credit or grade will be awarded.
    iv. Bypass Eng 101 and/or 201 under the procedures for advanced placement outlined in regulation “I.”
    M/S Deaton/Thatcher: That the English Composition courses and the general regulation covering the English composition requirement be changed as shown above, effective with the beginning of the 1972-1973 academic year.

    Special Degree Reqrirements for Students at Adult Education Centers
    Currently students who are working toward University of Idaho baccalaureate degrees at adult education centers are required to take the “last sixteen” credits of their senior year on the Moscow campus. it has been found that it would in some cases, be more helpful to all concerned if the sixteen credits were taken earlier in the senior year. This would enable faculty members of campus to become better acquainted with the students before they are in their final semester or summer session. To achieve this, the following revised statement for the top of page 155 of the 1971 general catalog is recommended by the faculty council:
    Students may work toward University of Idaho degrees at adult education centers by taking University of Idaho courses offered at these centers, and the grades earned in such courses are computed in the student’s grade point average. To the extent that appropriate courses are available an individual may complete all of the requirements for the baccalaureate degree at a center, except sixteen of the last forty credits required. After a candidate is within forty credits of completing the total number of credits required for his degree, he must complete in residence, on the University of Idaho campus, a minimum of sixteen credits (practicum, internship, and similar courses may not be computed among the minimum of sixteen to be earned on the Moscow Campus.) Of the remaining twenty-four credits, a maximum of eight credits may be taken by correspondence study, extension, advanced placement, credit by examination, or at another senior college or university.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That the above statement relative to the residence requirement for students working toward University of Idaho degrees at adult education centers be approved, effective immediately.

    Subject Requirements for Students Entering the University
    At the present time a student entering the University of Idaho with fewer academic units that the minimum total indicated for their particular college may remove the inadequacies by taking college courses; however, for each unit lacked, four credits are deducted from the credits earned at the University. The Administrative Council has questioned the University’s right to deduct these credits and, after studying the matter for some time, the University Curriculum Committee and the Faculty Council recommend that item b, at the top of page 27 of the 1971 general catalog, be changed to provide for the following revised procedure:
    b. Subject requirements
    (1) the subject-matter content of an applicant’s secondary education does not enter directly into the determination of his eligibility for admission. It does, however, provide a basis for evaluating the adequacy of his preparation for advising him as to his choice of college or major and for placement in certain college subjects. The recommended preparation for admission to the various colleges is set forth in the Table in this catalog section.
    (2) Students may be admitted with fewer academic units than the minimum total indicated for their particular college or they may be admitted with the total indicated. In either case, the student’s college will identify subject inadequacies and prescribe the means by which these inadequacies are removed or satisfied. Courses needed as preparation for the student’s college curriculum would be taken during the student’s first year at the University.
    M/S Engelking/Swartley: That the above revised procedure for removing inadequacies in the preparation of entering students be approved, effective immediately.

    Department of Vocational Teacher Education
    For some time it has been apparent that a more satisfactory administrative structure within the University would need to be developed if the vocational teacher education program is to fulfill its mission. A thorough study of this problem has been completed by the vocational teacher educators on campus, including representatives from the Colleges of Education, Business and Economics, Agriculture, and Letters and Science. The recommendations of the vocational teacher educators were reviewed by the Faculty Council and approved at the Council’s meeting of October 26, 1971 (agenda item #FC-72-015).
    In order that the vocational teacher education unit has the proper administrative perspective in terms of other departments in the College of Education, it is recommended that:
    a. The current administrative unit for vocational teacher education shall be included in a department to be placed in the College of Education and titled the Department of Vocational Teacher Education, effective January 1, 1972.
    b. The membership in the Department of Vocational Teacher Education shall be limited to vocational teacher educators appointed by the University of Idaho.
    c. The vocational teacher educators who currently hold appointments in colleges other than the College of Education, or in other departments in the college of Education, it will retain their present positions, responsibilities, and rank, but will share a joint appointment in the College of Education with responsibilities to the Department of Vocational Teacher Education.
    d. Priority of assignment for members who hold joint appointments shall be established in favor of the college to which they were initially appointed.
    e. The policies for governing the Department of Vocational Teacher Education shall be formulated by its members within the framework of the policies and objectives of the colleges represented and the University.
    f. The faculty within the Department of Vocational Education shall have the following responsibilities:
    1. Conducting such activities as are necessary for accomplishing the purposes of the department.
    2. Recommending students for admission into the teacher education program.
    3. Coordinating and recommending the professional education programs for students in the vocational teacher education.
    4. Recommending changes in existing graduate programs and the development of new graduate programs in vocational teacher education.
    5. Coordinating the research efforts and activities of vocational teacher educators.
    6. Cooperating with the State Board for Vocational Education for insuring implementation of teacher education components of the state plan for vocational education.
    7. Making recommendations to the State Department of Vocational Education as are necessary for the improvement of vocational education in Idaho.
    g. The new department shall be administered by an individual hold the title of Chairman, Department of Vocational Education. This administrator shall been responsible to the Dean, College of Education. The specific duties of the department chairman shall be: (1) budgetary and fiscal, and (2) to serve as the liaison individual between the department involved and the vocational teacher education, as well as between the University of Idaho and the State Department of Vocational Education. Other specific duties and responsibilities of the department chairman shall be defined in the University’s Handbook of Policy and Procedure.
    h. The curriculum for each vocational teacher education field (e.g. agricultural education, home economics education, etc.) shall be printed in the university catalog in the college section in which the student is receiving his degree with appropriate cross reference to the section including the Department of Vocational Teacher Education.
    i. Until the Department of Vocational Teacher Education is implemented, the present position and responsibilities of the coordinator of vocational teacher education shall be retained.
    j. The chairman of the Department of Vocational Teacher Education will be appointed on one of the budget lines now existing in the area.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That the proposed Department of Vocational Teacher Education be approved, effective January 1, 1972.

    Purchase of Sheep- Home Station
    Re: Regent’s minutes for meeting on 7-8 October 1971, page 78
    The College of Agriculture has requested permission to purchase 20 head of ewes at a cost of $500. They will be used to research on the prevention and treatment of foot rot.
    The above referenced granted to Bursar authority to dispose of sheep. It is now recommended that this authority be extended to cover both the acquisition and disposal of livestock.
    M/S Barnett/Thatcher: That the above mentioned purchase of ewes be permitted and that henceforth the Bursar be allowed to approve recommendations from the College of Agriculture for the acquisition or disposal of livestock, with the understanding that each such case will then be routinely reported to the regents and the understanding that the Bursar will clear any questionable cases with the Regents prior to authorizing the transactions.

    Amendment to Scholarship Provisions in the Carol Howe Foster (Phi Delta Theta) Scholarship Trust
    After consultation with the survivors of the donor of the above-named scholarship and the alumni and chapter officers of the local chapter of Phi Delta Theta fraternity, it is recommended that amendments be made in the criteria for awarding such scholarships, as follows:
    Whereas, Dr. Foster established the following basic criteria for the Carol Howe Foster scholarship: “… to provide a scholarship each year for the member of the local chapter of Phi Delta Theta who, with a high standard of character and health, maintains the best scholastic average during the sophomore and junior years” and
    Whereas, when the scholarship was established earnings from investments to support the scholarship were ate the $300 level, and
    Whereas, the original financial base for the Carol Howe Foster scholarship has grown substantially during the past twenty years and how produces approximately $3,000 annual income, which is considerably more than needed by one individual to meet expenses for one year at the University of Idaho, and
    Whereas, it is expected that these earnings will continue to grow,
    Be it hereby resolved, that the rules for awarding the Carol Howe Foster scholarship be changed to provide for the awarding of more than one scholarship based on the following arrangements:
    1. The value of a Carol Howe Foster scholarship would be determined annually by the officers of Phi Delta Theta and the University of Idaho Financial Aids Office, based on costs of enrolling in the University of Idaho plus the estimated cost of books and supplies plus the costs for living in the Phi Delta Theta house for one school year.
    2. Following the award of the first scholarship (to the member with the highest grade point average as specified), the balance remaining from the current earnings would be awarded as a second scholarship (to the member of Phi Delta Theta with the second highest grade point average as specified). However, the total amount awarded as a second scholarship would not be higher than the total determined for the first scholarship less $100.
    3. When the earnings of the Carol Howe Foster scholarship fund reach a point where they exceed the total amount awarded as the first and second scholarships, the remainder will be awarded to one or more additional Phi Delta Theta members according to the criteria similar to that specified above.
    4. No Carol Howe Foster scholarship will be awarded to an individual whose grade point average is less than the all-University average for the preceding academic year.
    5. Any funds not awarded as scholarships in any one year will be added to the capital of the Carol Howe Foster Fund.
    M/S Engelking/Barnett: That the Carol Howe Foster scholarship criteria be amended as recommended.

    Conflict of Interest
    Included in the audit report by Price Waterhouse & Company is a recommendation that a “definitive official policy regarding staff conflicts of interest” be adopted to help guide purchasing, contracting and other financial dealings by personnel associated with the University. The following statement, based on suggestions received from Price Waterhouse as to specific points which should be included, is recommended for approval: University policy with respect to possible conflicts of interest requires that Regents, officers, faculty, and all other employees avoid any conflict between their personal interests and the interests of the University in dealing with suppliers, customers, and all other organizations or individuals doing or seeking to do business with the University. In furtherance of this policy, the University requires that competitive bidding be used in the procurement of materials, supplies, equipment and contractual services.
    While it is not practicable to enumerate all situations which might be in conflict with this policy, the examples given below indicate some of the relationships to be avoided. This, it is considered to be in conflict with the University interests or a violation of trust:
    For an employee or any dependent member of his family to have an interest in any organization which has, or is seeking to have, business dealings with the University where there is an opportunity for preferential treatment to be given or received, except (a) with the knowledge and written consent of the President or his designee, or (b) in any case where such an interest comprises securities in widely held corporations which are quoted and sold on the open market, or in private corporations where the interest is not material.
    For an employee or any dependent member of his family to sell or lease any kind of property, facilities or equipment to the University or to any company, firm or individual who is or is seeking to become a contractor, supplier, or customer, except with the written approval of the President, or his designee.
    For any employee to serve as an officer or director of any other company, or in any management capacity for, or as a consultant to any individual, firm or other company doing or seeking to do business with the University except with the knowledge and written consent of the president, or his designee.
    For any employee, without proper authority, to give or release to anyone not employed by the university any data or information of a confidential nature concerning the University, such as that relating to decisions, plans, financial or business forecasts, or competitive bids; or to use such information to his personal advantage and not in the best interest of the University; for example, by acquiring or inducing others to acquire a financial interest in a company involved in or which may become involved in, any transaction with the University which is not generally known to the public.
    For an employee or any depended member of his family to accept from any organizations, firms, or individuals doing or seeking to do business with the University; commissions; a share in profits; gifts in cash; gift certificates or other payment; loans or advances (other than from established banking or financial institutions), materials, services, repairs, or improvements at no cost or at unreasonably low prices; excessive or extravagant entertainment; and travel or gifts of merchandise of more than nominal value.

    Agreement with American College Health Association
    Although the University has been a member of this association for some time, the University’s health program has never been reviewed and certified by the association. It is now deemed desirable to undergo such a review by a competent medical organization and to receive such certification. The ACHA provides such a service which includes a three day on-site visit by a team which includes a medical doctor and a documented report on the team’s findings. The cost of this evaluation is expected to total about $2,300.
    The money is available in the restricted current Infirmary Reserve Account. Through the evaluation we hope to get information on the comparative effectiveness of the student health care program at this and other universities and possibly to learn ways that the program here can be improved. Dr. Fitzgerald Concurs that securing this evaluation is desirable

    Report on University Stadium
    M/S Swartley/Munson: That the following proposal and authorization for the Financial Vice President and Bursar to negotiate and award contracts for same, as presented by the architect, Mr. Glen E. Cline, of Cline, Smull, Hamill, Shaw & Associates, be approved:
    Phase I construction on the new Athletic Complex, consisting of a storm drainage system contract, or pile driving contract, and an open football stadium contract has been previously approved by the Regents and will be completed in the near future.
    It is now deemed timely and desirable to commence Phase II construction, which in concept was approved by the Regents in June of 1970.
    Phase II construction contemplates the development of indoor playing and running surfaces on the floor of the stadium, including a roll-up type artificial turf to allow for complete flexibility and versatility of athletic and student intermural uses. Phase II also contemplates the completion of roof and endwall enclosures, field lighting and radiant type heating.
    It is believed to achieve, there are funds available in the Athletic Complex Account, and it is here proposed and recommended that approval be given for the accomplishment of the following work with same to begin at the earliest possible date and to be completed no later than 1 August 1972.
    1. Complete the concrete footings, foundations, walls, columns and beams of the west and east end walls of the stadium such as will complete that disruptive part of the final project, allowing for the later completion of the roof and upper end wall construction which can then be accomplished without damage to all previous phases of the project.
    It is believed that the easiest, quickest, and least expensive way to accomplish this part of the proposed work will be to effect a change order for same to the current construction contract for the stadium.
    The contractor is already at the job-site and has his forces and equipment immediately available. Time being on the essence, the month normally required for advertising and bidding could be saved. The quality and momentum of the work could be assured.
    Your architect has made a thorough and detailed estimate of the cost of this additional work, and would recommend approval or disapproval of the Change Order proposal in a strict professional manner.
    In the event the Contractor’s change order proposal would be deemed unsatisfactory, the concrete work would have to be accomplished on a bid basis, and the project schedule adjusted to where parts of the work might have to be delayed until after the 1972 football season. The cleanup of the project, the completion of the ground and landscaping would likewise have to be delayed, and same is not desired if avoidable.
    2. Contract for the excavation of the existing stadium earth floor, and installation of underfield drainage lines, the backfilling and compacting of the area with crushed basalt, and the application of two layers of an asphaltic concrete base with leveling course over the entire stadium floor, as the surface to receive the artificial track and roll-up turf by 3M Company.
    Inasmuch as asphalt batch plants in the area will not be in operation before early May, and since this part of the work can be accomplished without interruption or bother to the Stadium Contractor, it is felt there is time to prepare bidding documents and to bid this portion of the work and that this process should be followed when circumstances permit.
    3. Contract for the manufacture and installation of 3M Tartan Artificial Turf with roll-up capabilities and with removable fold-back corner capabilities. (Roll-up equipment to be deferred until roof and end-wall enclosures are authorized at a future date.) Artificial Turf installation to include field striping and rental of Gamesaver field vacuum for cleaning and water removal until future roof and end-wall enclosures accomplished.
    4. Contract for the installation of a 3M 3/8” Highlander Track Surfacing entirely around the artificial turf, including oval turns under corners of the turf, thus completing the visible floor surface of the stadium.
    (It is contemplated that the contracting for and installation of 3M 3/8” Highlander Basketball and Tennis Surfacing under the artificial turf will be deferred until the roof and end-wall enclosures are completed, inasmuch as same would not be usable until such time. By such time, better and/or less expensive materials may also be available.)
    The total estimated cost to complete the above described initial increments of Phase II Construction is $594,219.00.

    Married Student Housing Units- South Hill Terrace Town Houses
    Re: Board of Regent’s Minutes June 1970, p. 123 and July 1970, p. 130.
    The construction costs and the costs of furnishings and equipment for this project were previously approved. Since the construction has been completed, the City of Moscow has rerouted and improved the street and alternate approaches abutting this project. The City of Moscow accomplished this improvement by local improvement district. The University was not required to participate in this taxing district; however, costs of these street improvements directly attributable to University property amount to $7,111. Proper drainage for these improvements now requires a portion of the storm sewer projects noted below. The remainder of these projects are needed to properly drain the Forest Nursery and Arboretum area southeast of the corner of Sweet and Deakin Avenues, directly northeast of the housing area. Fifty South Hill Terrace Town House units, 24 South Hill Homes units, and two University-operated apartment houses are located in this area. Other private housings surrounds this area. Proper drainage will provide for the following:
    Utilization of the Arboretum area as recreation and park area for families renting University Housing.
    Elimination of a flood condition that has been an annual hazard and problem for children around this housing project.
    Elimination of a stagnant, moist area which has been a mosquito breeding ground.
    The offset of a portion of these costs against the City of Moscow’s allocation for University improvement of the streets as noted above.
    The City of Moscow would offset $4,050 of the drainage improvement costs against the request of $7,111 for street improvements leaving a balance of $3,061 which is contingently payable over a ten-year period to the City of Moscow.
    Accordingly, approval is requested for the following:
    Project A- 36 inch storm sewer to eliminate flood conditions in the Arboretum area next to the housing project, estimated to cost about $9,820.
    Project B- 12 inch storm sewer from the South Hill Terrace area down to Sweet Avenue, estimated to cost about $6,590.
    Project C- 6 inch storm sewer from Taylor Avenue (abutting the South Hill Terrace project and the City of Moscow’s street improvement area) down to join the 12 inch storm sewer noted in Project B above, estimated to cost about $4,050.
    Project D- 4 foot high chain link fence (this will fence off the Arboretum area, the South Hill Homes area and the South Hill Terrace area from the University Forest Nursery plots and the area that the University uses in cooperation with the US Department of Agriculture Forest Experiment Station) estimated to cost about $4,400.
    Dormitory reserve funds in the amount of $697,034.17 were previously set aside and earmarked for this entire project. Presently $24,507.90 remains unexpended. The small additional requirement (approximately $360) can be obtained from dormitory reserve funds.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That Projects A, B, C, & D be approved and that the Bursar be permitted to secure bids for this work and to accept the low bids for the projects, if the total cost approximates the total of the estimates shown above.

    South Hill Terrace Financing
    Regents’ approval was previously secured for the general plan for financing this University family housing project. This paragraph is to document in more detail the financing arrangements being followed, for the information and approval of the Regents. Dormitory reserve funds were used on a loan basis for the construction of this married student housing. The total cost of the project will be about $698,000, depending upon the exact dollar amount of the drainage and fencing program noted in the previous agenda item. The funds were borrowed on a no interest basis and are being repaid from rental payments (after operating costs) on the South Hill Terrace Town Houses. In addition to covering routine operating costs, were are withholding annually charges of $5,000 to provide for a major repair reserve for these units. About $40,000 to $5,000 annually will be available to credit toward the repayment of this loan.
    M/S Barnett/Deaton: That repayment of the advance as explained above be approved.

    Circular Affairs
    M/S Alford, Jr./Barnett: carried that the contract, Exhibit IV, between the University of Idaho and School District No. 1, Portland, Oregon, be approved.
    The College of Education has worked out the contract with the Portland, Oregon, Public Schools. Its purpose is to provide student teaching experience in a large metropolitan atmosphere for selected University of Idaho students. On-site supervision will be provided by Mr. Ralph Nelson, a doctoral candidate at the University of Idaho College of Education and a professional employee of the Portland Public Schools. Expense of supervision will be borne initially by federal funds available to the Portland School System. Critic teachers will be paid in the usual manner by the University of Idaho. The contract will be negotiated annually.

    Procedures for Administering
    Permission is requested to consolidate individual research support programs under the Coordinator of Research and the Research Council into a unified program to be known as the “Directed Research Development Program.” This consolidation will permit better financial control and management. A steering committee of the Research Council will then review and advise on all research proposals submitted to the Coordinator of Research for support and recommend to him the allocation of support to such proposals based upon their merits, considered in the light of existing programs within the University and elsewhere.
    M/S Thatcher/Alford, Jr.: that the consolidation of research support programs under the Coordinator of Research explained above be approved.

    Rental of Land- Golden Orr
    M/S Thatcher/Barnett: that approval be given for the College of Agriculture to pay $250 per acre to cover rental and operating costs for operating 8.5 acres of land for experiments on control of corky ringspot of potatoes. The operation includes all normal cultural practices such as seed bed preparation, planting, cultivation, irrigation, and harvest; plus furnishing tractor and driver for special operations in connection with experimental procedures. The rental rate was determined by a local committee representing potato growers of Egin Bench area where this disease threatens potato production.

    Holiday in Lieu of Columbus Day
    The University Faculty has recommended that Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving Day be a holiday in lieu of Columbus Day, beginning with the 1972-73 academic year. In recent years classes have been dismissed on this day to permit students from southern Idaho enough travel time to reach their homes on Thanksgiving Day. Rather than to continue to dismiss classes by special action each time, it is recommended that this be formalized for future calendars. It is understood that this calendar change is not binding on the College of Law.
    M/S Swartley/Engelking: That the Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving Day be a holiday in lieu of Columbus Day, beginning with the 1972-1973 academic year.

    Report of University Stadium
    Re: Board of Regents’ minutes January 1972, pages 59-60
    The above reference authorized continued development of the stadium, and plans and work are now progressing on schedule. Part of the authorization which the Regents granted involved installing track surfacing around the artificial turf. Engineers and architects now recommend that such track surfacing not be installed at this time, but that we wait until completing the roof before making the installation. Eliminating the track surfacing will reduce the cost of the work now being done by about $46,000. Offsetting this saving, however, will be expense for installing roll-up equipment for the turf which we have determined must be installed at this time at a cost of about $60,000. When we secured the aforementioned Regents’ approval this was not included. The deletion and addition seemed to be within the Regents’ general intent for stadium development, and because of the need to expedite work so that the stadium will be usable next fall, the above mentioned changes were authorized.
    The funds which are available for stadium construction, after completion of work now being undertaken and scheduled to be completed in August 1972, will be invested, pending the development of plans for financing further development of the stadium. Student leaders will be consulted concerning those plans before regents approval is requested to expend those funds. Funds will be invested in an amount not to exceed $300,000 to be designated as restricted for the purchase of multi-use under surfacing for the stadium. Prior to the expenditure of any of these funds, ASUI will be consulted.
    M/S Deaton/Engelking: That the above request, as submitted, be approved.
    3/2/72 62
    Cancellation of Project and Contract
    As reported in the Board minutes, 24 October 1969, p. 181, the regents authorized alterations of the heating system at the Joe Marshall Potato Research Center at the Aberdeen Branch Experiment Station. Subsequently, adjustments in the system eliminated the problem, and the project was closed without cost to the University.

    Married Student Housing
    As reported to the Regents by a memorandum dated January 25, 1972, because of age and flood damage, 29 unites of married student housing on campus have deteriorated to the extent that they are not fit to be lived in, and we would like to remove these unites in June 1972. They were war surplus property and moved here from a military base about 1946. We do not plan to replace these unites, removing this housing and restoring the area will cost about $23,000. Funds to do this work are available in housing reserves and we now seek authority to proceed with it.
    The University also has 24 “South Hill Homes.” These units are small frame houses built in 1946 and 1947. They are worn out and we are now completing estimates and plans for their removal. Within about the next month we expect to seek Regents’ approval to remove all or some of these units and to replace them with about 25 units of married student housing somewhat similar to the 50 units constructed by Boise Cascade Corporation on Campus about two years ago. This matter is being reported now in the event Regents wish to discuss it during the March meeting. Our request for authority to go ahead with this will be by circular letter, and approval will need to be expedited, if new housing is to be completed and ready for occupancy next fall.
    M/S Deaton/Alford, Jr.: That the Bursar be authorized to receive bids, and to accept the lowest responsive bid, for removal of 29 pre-fab unites of married student housing on the University campus and restoration of that area, with the understanding that this work will be done about June 1972 and that the cost of the work will be about $23,000.

    Revised Quorum Rule for Constitution of the Faculty
    Last year the University faculty recommended a revised quorum rule for the Constitution of the Faculty. The Board postponed action on the proposal and asked that the wording be clarified. The University faculty now recommends the following revised wording for Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution of the Faculty:
    “A quorum shall consist of not less than a number equal to one-fourth (1/4) of the voting membership of the University Faculty, as defined in Article II, Section 1, who are currently assigned to the Moscow campus; however, all members of the University faculty, whether assigned to the Moscow campus or to another location have the right to vote in any meeting of the University faculty they may be able to attend.”
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution of the University Faculty be amended as shown above.
    3/2/72

    Proposed Revision of Policy on Employment of Relatives
    The University Faculty has recommended that the Board’s policy on the employment of relatives (Sections 539. And 603. Of the Board Policy Manual for Higher Education Institutions) should be revised to remove negative connotations. During the debate on this matter it was stressed that so-called anti-nepotism rules are inherently discriminatory against women. It was further stressed that personnel should be hired on their own merits without regard to who is already employed. Furthermore, the current statement does not define the word “department,” and this presents problems in applying it to such areas as the University Library, etc. Therefore, to liberalize the atmosphere without substantially changing current procedures, it is recommended that the policy be changed to read as follows:
    “No individual may function as judge or advocate in specific situations involving members of his or her immediate family (such as the employee’s spouse, child, parent, grandparent, brother, sister, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law, and daughter-in-law). Faculty/Staff members should neither initiate nor participate in institutional decisions involving a direct benefit (such as initial appointment, retention, promotion, salary, and leave of absence) to members of their immediate families.”
    M/S Engelking/Deaton: That the Sections 539. And 603. Of the Board’s Policy Manual for Higher Education Institutions be changed to read as recommended above.

    Climbing of University TV Tower
    It occasionally becomes necessary for a University employee to climb the TV tower to replace lights or to perform other maintenance. The tower is located on top of a hill near the campus and is approximately 153 feet tall. Climbing the tower constitutes “hazardous duty”- climbing above 50 to 60 feet is considered hazardous by outside professional climbers who receive $65 to $150 in this geographical area for such a climb.
    Permission requested to make payments, in addition to regular salary, to University employees whose duties require that they climb the TV tower to perform maintenance. It is proposed that the Bursar be authorized to make such payments after determining that such climbs are properly authorized and necessary. Initial rates will be established at $50 per climb during normal working hours and $60 per climb during other hours.
    M/S Deaton/Munson: That the Bursar be authorized (a) to make payments to University employees, in addition to their regular salary payments, when it is necessary for them to climb the University TV tower to perform maintenance on that tower, (b) to prescribe procedures for authorizing climbing of the tower and approving payments therefore, and (c) to establish appropriate pay rates for such climbs, considering payments made for similar work by others in the area.

    Disposal of 1972 Wool Clip- Sheep Experiment Station
    It is estimated that there will be about 62,000 pounds of grease wool shorn from flocks of the Sheep Experiment Station in May 1972. The planned research use and disposal of this wool is as follows:
    About 2,000 pounds of grease wool from specific breeding groups (individual fleeces) are to be scoured at the University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyoming in connection with the breeding program (clean fleece selection) at Dubois. Resultant scoured wool will be available for sale. If possible, this scoured wool will be sold through Richard W. Wells Company, 263 Summer Street, Boston, Massachusetts. If sale through this firm is not possible, it will be sold in another way.
    About 60,000 pounds of graded grease wool, not designated for specific research will be available for sale after shearing. It appears advantageous to again have sale of this wool handled by Western Wool and Growers Service Company, 404 West Seventh South, Salt Lake City, Utah. In order to take advantage of the wool market in early 1972, it would be advisable to enter into a sales agreement with this firm as soon as possible. The station wool could then be offered by this firm on a description basis to prospective buyers.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the disposal of the 1972 Sheep Experiment Station wool clip, as outlined above, be approved.

    Financial Report on Wind Damage
    A paper sent to the Regents on 25 January 1972 mentioned that a severe wind storm earlier that month had caused considerable damage to the University campus. the cost of much of this loss, such as the loss of about thirty trees from six to thirty inches in diameter, cannot be accurately measured. Costs for repairs total $21,914.47. Of this amount, we now expect our insurance claims to yield $10,295.61. This is smaller than the amount we had hoped to collect, as mentioned in the aforementioned preliminary report. A paper which explains these figures and the basis for the insurance adjustments as we expect to receive is attached as Exhibit IX.

    Financing of Performing Arts Center
    This bond issue has bonds outstanding in the amount of $206,000 as of December 1971 drawing interest at the rate of 4 percent per annum. At the expiration of the second semester of the 1971-72 academic year, sufficient funds will be accumulated in the Infirmary Bond Sinking Fund Reserve to retire these bonds; however, scheduled normal repayment continues through 1984. To call the bond issue in advance would require publication of notices in financial publications and would require the payment of a premium on each bond. Since we are presently earning in excess of 4 percent on our sinking fund investments, it would not be desirable to call the issue at additional expense and lose the interest income. The Infirmary Bond indenture requires that the fee, $3.50 per student per semester, used to retire this Bond indebtedness, be earned for redemption purposes as long as any bonds remain outstanding; however, as long as funds are not required for the bond sinking fund, the Regents may permit such funds to be used for other purposes.
    Permission is requested to use this income to repay the University’s indebtedness in the amount of $83,615.67 to the Fund for the Performing Arts Center reported in a financial statement dated 11 November 1971 and distributed to the Regents with this agenda for the meeting on 2-3 December 1971, and after that repayment to credit the income toward the remaining financing required for the Performing Arts Center. Regents’ approval will be secured before such money is spent. This arrangement is legally permissible and financially proper. The funds can be used to supplement voluntary contributions which have been and are being received for this building and can expedite completion of this building. The building will be used for drama instruction and other academic purposes now being accommodated in the U-Hut and the auditorium within the Administration Building. The U-Hut is a “temporary” frame structure which should be removed. It was used as a YMCA Center during World War I and later as a post office building. The auditorium was built about 1912 and is now in worse condition than almost any auditorium which could be found in a high school.
    M/S Engelking/Thatcher: That (a) the $3.50 infirmary bond fee, over and above requirements to service that bond issue, and the $3.00 student union alteration fee, after the payment of current obligations for that fee, be applied to provide financing in the amount $250,000 toward phase I of the Performing Arts Center, and (b) thereafter, the $3.50 and $3.00 fees be used to accumulate funds for subsequent student union building alterations or construction. It is understood that Regents authority will be secured before these funds are expended.

    Contract with Architect on Performing Arts Center
    Re: #1 Board minutes, 12-13 November 1970, p. 151; #2 Board minutes, 10-11 December 1970, p. 95; #3 Board minutes, 7-8 October 1971, pp. 72-73.
    Reference #1 authorized the development of a three phased construction plan for a Preforming Arts Center and retention of the architectural firm of CJ Bellamy and Company of Coeur d’Alene to develop working plans for the first phase, approval being predicated upon the availability of funds collected from public subscription to underwrite the work.
    Reference #2 reported the development of a contract to provide for the payment of architect’s fees in the amount of $57,378.45 through the completion of working drawings for Phase I of the construction.
    Reference #3 reported changes in the concept for Phase I of the center and the contract with Bellamy and Co. to prepare working drawings for Phase I of the construction. As reported at that time, a preliminary estimate of the cost of the center was $750,000 plus architectural and consultant fees of $53,293.75, or a total of about $803,294.
    As planning has continued for this Center it has become evident that certain additional cost should be incurred, as follows: Special foundations (determined necessary after soil tests), Extension of Utility Tunnel, sewer and water lines to the site, additional seating in auditorium, enlarged shop area, construction contingency fund, architectural fees. Total increases: $159,986. Estimated Cost for phase I* $963,280.
    *This estimate is on the basis of bids being requested this summer. If construction is delayed, construction costs will increase. Also, to this amount must be added interest costs which cannot yet be computed, because plans for financing construction have not yet been fully developed.
    As noted above, the Regents previously approved the administration’s request to secure working drawings for Phase I of the construction. Because of the increased scope of the project, it seems proper to again clear this project with the Regents prior to proceeding with the development of working drawings. Funds which have been secured from public subscription are available to pay for this work. A copy of the architects schematic design report with cost estimates is being filed as a permanent exhibit with the Office of Higher Education.
    M/S Munson/Alford, Jr.: That approval be given to obtain working drawings for Phase I of the Performing Arts Center as described above.

Formal commencement exercises are held only at the close of the spring semester; however, diplomas are also issued at the close the summer session and the fall semester to such candidates as have completed their graduation requirements at that time. All students who graduate in the summer, fall, or spring are entitled to participate in the annual commencement exercises. Any candidate who does not intended to participate in the formal commencement exercises must notify his or her academic dean prior to the close of the academic session in which graduation requirements are completed so that appropriate arrangements can be made. Reservations for caps, gowns, and hoods must be made by the date specified by the registrar. Diplomas are ready about five weeks after the date of the academic session in which graduation requirements are completed.

    Application for Degrees
    M/S Alford/Engelking: That the following revision or general academic regulation “J-7,” on pages 56-57 of the 1972-73 general catalog be approved:
    7. Application for Degrees. A candidate for a degree or certificate must, at the beginning of the last summer or summer session in residence, pay the diploma fee and file an application with his or her academic dean. The application must be filed with the dean after the diploma fee has been paid at the Controller’s office. (See “Fees and Expenses” in part 2.) The last day for filing applications for an undergraduate degree or certificate is the beginning of the third week of the semester or before the beginning of the second week of summer session. The last day for file applications for an advanced or graduate degree or certificate is the beginning of the fourth week of the semester or before the beginning of the third week or summer session. If applications are received by the dean after these dates, there is an additional fee if the student wishes to receive his diploma at the close of the semester or summer session. If an application for degree is transmitted by the college to the registrar less than one month before the end of the academic session in which graduation requirements are completed, the application will be held by the registrar and processed with those received at the beginning of the next academic session. (See regulation “0-4” about commencement, and see the academic calendar in the front of this catalog for exact dates.)

    Repeat and Review
    M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That the following revision to general academic regulation “E-5,” on page 52 of the 1972-73 general catalog be approved with the understanding that this change is not binding on the College of Law.
    5. Raising a Grade by Repeating a Course. A student who has received a grade of D or F in a course at the University of Idaho or elsewhere may repeat the course in residence at the University of Idaho in an effort to raise the grade, provided a more advance course for which the first course is a prerequisite has not been completed in the meantime. While all grades received remain on the record, only the grade received the last time the course was taken is counted for grade-point purposes. (This revised regulation “E-5” is effective for all courses repeated during the 1972-73 academic year and thereafter.)

    a. no examinations under this regulation may be conducted during the final two weeks of any semester or other academic session.
    b. Students are not permitted to challenge a prerequisite course after having completed the advanced course.
    c. Credit in courses offered by the College of Law may not be obtained by this procedure.
    d. The student must submit evidence to the instructor concerning that he or she has sufficient knowledge for the course in question. After the student has secured the approval of the instructor and the chairman of the department in which the course is offered, as well as the student’s academic dean, the required examination fee is paid and the petition is then filed with the registrar. The registrar will check the student’s official record and if the student is eligible to take the advanced-credit examination, the instructor will be notified by card to proceed with the examination.
    e. Undergraduate students must score a C or higher to pass and obtain credit. Graduate Students must score B or A to pass and obtain credit. A passing grade is entered as a P and is not included in grade-point compensation. If the student does not meet the foregoing standards, no entry is made on his academic records.
    f. Results of the challenged courses must be submitted to the registrar no later than the beginning of the final examination period during each semester. In the case of graduate students, the results are submitted via the chairman of the student’s major department and the dean of the Graduate School.

    Pass-Fail Option
    M/S Hay/Alford: That the following revision of general academic regulation “B-11” on page 48 of the 1972-73 general catalog be approved:
    11. Pass-Fail Option
    a. Undergraduate Students. With the approval of the adviser, an undergraduate student who has attained junior standing (sixty credits) and has a cumulative grade-point average of 2.00 or higher is permitted to enroll in one course per semester under this “pass-fail option.” This procedure is separate from taking courses which are regularly graded on the basis of P or F. Courses which may be taken by undergraduates under the pass-fail option are those which are outside the student’s major field and are not excluded from this option by the academic department in which the student is majoring. Departments usually exclude courses which are closely related to the major field. A maximum of twelve credits earned in courses under this regulation may be counted toward a baccalaureate degree.
    b. Graduate Students
    (1) with the approval of the major professor (or adviser in the case of an unclassified student) and the dean of the Graduate School, a graduate student may enroll in a limited number of courses under this “pass-fail” option. This option is separate from the provision for earning credit in non-competitive graduate courses which are graded on the basis of P or F as outlined in regulation “E-2-a,” below.
    (2) Courses which may be taken by graduate students under this regulation are: (a) any course which the student’s graduate committee deems not essential to the major field, and (b) any course required to remove a deficiency or to provide background for the students program, unless the major department stipulates that such deficiency courses must be taken on a regular grade basis and completed with a grade of A or B.
    (3) Of the minimum number of credits required for a degree or professional certificate, no more than three credits in a master’s program or nine in a doctoral program may be taken under this “pass-fail option.”
    (4) To have a grade of P recorded for a course taken under this regulation to graduate students must earn a grade of C or above. A grade of D will be converted to an F on the student’s academic records.
    (5) An unclassified student may enroll for courses under this option with the approval of the student’s adviser (if assigned) and the dean of the Graduate School; however, if at a later date the student is admitted to a degree or certificate program, the above regulations apply and no changes to regular letter grades will be permitted.
    c. Adds, Drops and Changes. Students may not add or drop a pass-fail option course in the same manner as a regular course, and they may change from pass-fail to regular-grade classification, or vice versa, if they do so prior to the last day to add courses or change course sections (see the academic calendar in the front of this catalog for the exact date). Students may make these changes by securing the approval of their advisers (or major professor) and their academic deans.
    d. Reporting on Grades. The instructor of a course is not notified as to which students are enrolled in it under this pass-fail option. Grades under this option are reported in the same manner as grades in courses taken on regular-grade basis. The registrar is charged with the responsibility of converting grades to P or F on the student’s academic records.

    Stillinger Trust
    A detailed report on this trust is attached as Exhibit VI. As explained in that exhibit, there is now a requirement to sell property held by the trust which was appraised at $368,986.77. This action requests Regents authority to sell $165,597.94 of this property on the open market by methods explained in the exhibit. In the case of each parcel of this property, the proposed sale price and contractual arrangements will be reported to the Regents, and approval will be sought, before completing the sale. The trust is to be paid the remaining $203,388.83 by the University, as explained in the exhibit, in accordance with general authorization previously secured from the Regents.
    Funds have been accumulated in reserves for this specific purpose and are available to be transferred into the trust account.
    M/S McCollum/Alford: That the Bursar be authorized to continue action (b) to transfer reserves in the amount of $203,388.83 into the Stillinger Trust to reimburse that trust for property which the University wishes to retain. (The Board “held” item (a) for further report at the next board meeting.)

    Waiver of Zeigler Estates' Furniture Proceeds (No Publicity Please)
    The University of Idaho is being bequeathed a substantial interest (which could amount to over $250,000) in the W.L. and Clara Zeigler estates. The bequest will be to the Board of Regents of the University of Idaho to be placed in a fund entitled “The Zeigler Educational Foundation” to be used for Scholarships for students enrolled in the College of Mines. This situation should not be publicized until after the probates have been completed.
    The co-executors and attorney for the estates requested that the University of Idaho waive its interest in miscellaneous household furniture of that estate so that this property could be distributed to members of the Zeigler family. The University’s interest in this particular property would amount to an estimated $400 to $600. Prompt action was requested, and so the Bursar, as fiscal agent for the Regents, approved the request.
    M/S McCollum/Munson: That waiver of the University of Idaho’s participation in the division of, or proceeds from the disposition of, household furniture and household effects of the Zeigler estates be ratified.

    Group Insurance- New England Mutual Insurance Company
    M/S McCollum/Munson: That (a) the contract with New England Mutual Life Insurance Company providing major medical insurance for University employees be renewed for one year effective 1 May 1972 and (b) the necessary rate adjustment be authorized. This contract has been in existence since December 1956. No increase in rates has been made since May 1967. Specific loss ratio figures for the 1971 operating year have not been received as of this date; however, telephone conversations with eh company on 20 April indicate that a negative loss ratio for the past two years plus contingent claims outstanding has drawn down our stabilization reserve to an amount that a rate adjustment will be required. We have not year been able to get the information necessary to work out the exact amount of the rate increase, but this is expected to be about 10 percent. The total premiums now amount to $230,000 per year, about 75 percent of which is paid by the university and about 25 percent of which are paid by individual employees. Prior to extending this contract in 1973, we plan to study the desirability of having various companies bid on this insurance and then make appropriate recommendations to the Regents.

    P/F Grading in Undergraduate Courses
    M/S Munson/Hay: That the following revision to general academic regulation “E-1-b” on page 51 of the 1972-73 general catalog, be changed to read:
    b. With reference to the phrase “special situations” in connection with the reporting of P (pass) grades in undergraduate courses, this means that a grade of P may be reported at the option of the department, on a course-by-course basis, in non-competitive undergraduate courses, such as seminars, directed study, and independent study. Grades of P or F are also reported in courses carrying the statement “graded on the bases of P or F,” in the official course description. In those undergraduate courses in which P grades are to be used, the method of grading systems will be uniform for all students in the course. Grades under the “pass-fail option” are not affected by this regulation because the conversion of the regular letter grade is made by the registrar after the instructor turns in the class roster.

    Increase in Rental Charge
    Students at the University of Idaho now have their choice of three different food service plans, each of which has a different cost. The plan which most student select results in board and room costs of $828 for the school year. Every effort has been made to hold down charges to students, and board and room rates have not been increased since 1970. Prior to that time, nominal increases were made almost every year, because of increasing costs. It is now necessary that room charges be increased. No increases in food charges for next year are now contemplated.
    M/S Munson/Thatcher: That room charges for students living in University dormitories be increased $10 per semester per student beginning in August 1972.
    5/5/72

    Water Resources Committee Agreement
    The University of Idaho how has only on producing well, and this well is presently supplying all water used on campus. How long the water from this well will meet the needs of the campus is not known. We are taking steps to get an additional back-up well, but this may only be an interim solution to the water supply problem. For several years we have been engaged in joint cooperative efforts with Washington State University and the cities of Moscow and Pullman to determine the best way to provide for an adequate long-term supply of water for this region. The University of Idaho previously paid its part of the cost of an engineering study for evaluate possible sources of ground water. Also, the Regents approved a proposal that the University pay $5,000 annually toward the cost of the salary for an executive director to pursue efforts to secure a water supply. This cost was not incurred because at the time the City of Moscow decided against participating in that joint effort. Now, the two universities and the two cities have each designated two representatives to serve as a committee whose task it is to coordinate efforts to solve long-term water supply problems for the region. This specific action is to secure continuing approval to help finance the activities of the joint committee.
    M/S Munson/Engelking: That the Bursar be authorized to execute joint agreements with Washington State University and the cities of Moscow and Pullman to provide for the University of Idaho to pay 25 percent of the costs incurred by the Pullman-Moscow Water Resources Committee with the understandings that (a) this will involve total costs to the University of less than $2,500 per year, (b) the agreements will continue for such length of time as the President of the University of Idaho determines it to be advisable for the University to have a member on a joint committee to plan and provide for an adequate long-term supply of water for the University, and (c) the persons he designates to represent the university on this committee shall submit reports to him at lease annually concerning the committee’s activities and expenditures.
    5/5/72

    Authority to Sell Stock Certificates
    M/S Hay/Thatcher: That the Bursar be authorized to dispose of, by sale, certificates of stock given to the university that are not desirable to be retained in the endowment fund pool of the University. As an example, we presently have four shares of International Telephone and Telegraph common stock given to the F.P.A.C. drive and we now do not hold this issue or wish to add it to the portfolio at this time.

    Report on Student Health Center
    Re: Regents’ minutes for January 1972, pp. 57-58
    The American College Health Association has made a review of the health program at the University of Idaho, as authorized by the above reference. A detailed, written report showing the results of the review is expected but has not yet been received. When this report is received, copies will be forwarded to the Regents. A report which discusses some of the findings by the visiting team and related matters concerning the Student Health Center is attached as Exhibit XXIV. Various actions will be taken as a result of information presented in that exhibit. One of these actions will be to request an increase in the student fee for student health service beginning next fall semester, as soon as a determination can be made as to the exact amount that this fee needs to be increased.

    Stillinger Trust
    Re: Regents’ minutes for 4-5 May 1972, pages 60-61
    The above reference authorized the University to purchase certain properties from the Stillinger Trust and indicated that the request for authority “to sell on the open market at the highest prices which can be secured, property previously appraised at $165,597.94” was to be held “for further report at the next Board meeting.” This property involved nine parcels and the proposal to sell that property was held because of a request by the Associated Students of the University of Idaho that they be given time to inquire into the matter. Subsequent correspondence with the County Tax Assessor, inquiring about the sale of the nine parcels of land, and two memos from the Director of Family Housing Operations concerning this property are attached as Exhibit I.
    Discussions were held with Student leaders concerning the need to sell this property and the fact that the University Attorney advises that this be done without delay, since he feels that holding this property is jeopardizing the University’s tax status. The ASUI Senate is believed to have concluded that these properties should be sold. However, as of the date of this writing, the President of the Associated Students cannot be contacted, and the exact position of the ASUI Senate cannot be confirmed. The ASUI president is expected to attend the Regent’s meeting on 30 May 1972, and so it should be possible to obtain the opinion and proposals of student leaders regarding the proposed sale at that time.
    M/S Swartley/Alford: That the Bursar be authorized (a) to sell on the open market at the highest prices which can be secured, nine parcels of property previously appraised at $165,597.94 held by the Stillinger Trust, and (b) to credit the receipts from those sales to the trust, in accordance with the trust agreement.

    Consolidated Investment Trust
    The Common Fund, a non-profit corporation formed to enable educational institutions to join together in professional management of endowment and investment funds, has been publicized nationally as an investment media that should be considered by all eligible institutions. The Ford Foundation is subsidizing all organizations and operations expenses for an estimated three years and in addition is supporting additional research and publication in this area. Minimum institutional investment is set at $100,000. We believe that the University endowment pool, on the average, is out-performing, and will out-perform the Common Fund; however, that fund should be a sound, solid investment and investing in it will also give us a built in measure of performance.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the Bursar be authorized to invest $100,000 of Consolidated Investment Trust funds in the Common Fund.

    Computer Requirement
    The need for $40,000 to extend utilities for the Computer Center, and the computer hardware situation and requirement at the University of Idaho, are explained in Exhibits II and III, respectively. IBM representatives have indicated that the order for 370/145 equipment must be confirmed or cancelled on or shortly after July 1, 1972, and that if the order is confirmed, about three months will be required before the equipment can be received and installed.
    M/S Swartely/Munson: That (a) $40,000 of the $450,000 contingency fund now held by the Office of Higher Education be allocated to the University of Idaho for extension of utilities to its Computer Center, (b) the Director of Higher Education send a letter to the Department of Administrative Services to secure whatever concurrence or approval is required by the office for the University of Idaho to lease IBM 370/145 hardware as soon as funds become available, and (c) the Director of the Office of Higher Education contact the Bursar of the University by the earliest possible date to confirm that funds will or will not be available to lease IBM 370/145 hardware the next fiscal year, and that the Bursar then either confirm or cancel the order for the hardware which has been placed with IBM.

    Financing of Performing Arts Center
    Re: Regents’ minutes, March 2-3, 1972, p. 72-74
    Authority to contract for working drawings for a Performing Arts Center, at a total estimated cost of about $963,000, was granted by the aforementioned reference. Plans for this building were also reviewed during the Regents’ meeting on May 5, 1972. Working drawings have now been completed and authority is requested to advertise for bids. If an acceptable bid is received, the building could be completed and ready for use about December, 1973.
    The aforementioned reference mad provisions to pay $250,000 of the cost of this building through the use of specific student fees which are now being collected. Subsequent to this action by the regents, the ASUI Senate recommended to the President and the Regents that an additional $140,000 of such fees be applied toward the cost of this building. This action by the ASUI Senate is attached as Exhibit IV. It is now financially feasible to call for bids for the construction of this building. The estimated total financial requirement, the projected source of funds, and the current status of funds for this project are summarized on Exhibit V.
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the Bursar be authorized to (a) call for bids for Phase I of the Performing Arts Center and to accept the lowest responsive bids for the completion of the center if this work can be completed within the funds projected to be available as shown by Exhibit V, and (b) borrow up to $390,000 from internal university sources or short-term bank loans, this amount to be repaid by the $3.50 Infirmary Bond Fee after the building bond obligations against this fee have been meet. The utilization of student fees to cover $250,000 toward the cost of this building, as reported on page 73 of the Regents minutes for 2-3 March, 1972, is hereby rescinded.

    Request for Permission to Purchase Property
    Re: Regents minutes for 7-8 October 1971
    The above noted Regents action authorized the Bursar to execute a contract which provided for an initial payment of $12,000 to acquire either 80 acres or 163.43 acres of land for use by the College of Agriculture at a price of $800 per acre, with the understanding that the matter would be reviewed with the Regents prior to a final determination as to whether the University should buy the 80 or the 163.43 acres. This action is to secure approval to purchase the 163.43 acres.
    The expansion of the University campus is requiring that about 175 acres of land previously used by the College of Agriculture be diverted to other purposes. The University farm thus has a pressing need to secure land immediately adjacent to it in order to maintain the hears and flocks of beef cattle, dairy cattle, poultry, sheep and swine used for teaching and research purposes.
    The 80 acres of land which are now arranging to sell adjacent to the Elk’s Golf Course at $750 per acres is much less desirable use by the College of Agriculture that the land which we are now seeking to purchase. We believe that the option which the Elks have presently purchased will be executed and that if it is not that we will be able to find another buyer in approximately the same price range, and we request authority to use the proceeds from this sale of property to purchase the additional land now sought by the College of Agriculture, namely:
    Lot 6 and 7, Section 6, Township 39 North, Range 5 WBM and the East One-half of SE ¼ of Section 1, Township 39, North, Range 6 WBM, Latah County, Idaho
    M/S Munson/Hay: That the Bursar be authorized to negotiate and sign a contract for the purchase of the above-mentioned land under terms felt to be in the best interests of the University of Idaho, applying to the purchase of this land the entire proceeds from the sale of 80 acres of land adjacent to the Elk’s Golf Course and annual payments of about $12,500 from the budget for Home Station, Agricultural Research

    Financial Report on University of Idaho Foundation, Inc.
    Re: Regents minutes for September 1-2, 1971, p. 8
    The above reference requires that the foundation submit an annual report “to the Regents regarding the amount of funds received and the disposition or proposed disposition of said funds.” The first such report, covering receipts listed were checks made out specifically to the foundation. Henceforth, it is proposed that unrestricted gifts and bequests received in the name of the University of Idaho and the Regents also be credited to the foundation. However, in each case, prior to making such a transfer to the foundation, the item will be reported to the Regents and their approval to make the transfer will be secured.

    Afro-American Studies
    In order to provide a consolidated listing in the catalog of existing courses dealing with Afro-American studies, approval is requested for the following recommendation by the University faculty (General curriculum/policy report #24):
    Jointly number the following existing courses with Afro-American Studies (AfrAm): Anthr 427, Eng 327, Hist 432, PolSc 485, SocSc 103, and Soc 322, and list the standard directed study and seminar entries (200, 299, 400, 499) with the Afro-American Studies course in the catalog.
    M/S Munson/Alford: That the recommended be approved.
    7/6/72 25
    Routine Catalog Changes
    In accordance with the Board’s resolution of 4-5 May 1972, the additions to the on-campus credit-hour offerings (through course adds and changes) in the attached general curriculum report #25 are offset by equivalent reductions (either course drops or credit decreases). As noted in the report, WSU courses to be jointly listed in the UI catalog do not affect the number of credits offered at the University of Idaho.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the routine catalog changes listed in general curriculum report #25, Exhibit II be approved. A copy of the Exhibit II is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.
    7/6/72 26
    Limitations on Class Size
    At the present time, class sizes may be limited only because of facilities. Occasionally there are other legitimate reasons for limiting the size of certain classes. To clarify the procedures for such limitations, it is recommended that the following academic regulation “0-5” be added on page 60 of the 1972-73 general catalog:
    5. Limitations on Class Size. When the size of a class must be limited for special reasons (e.i. reasons other than facilities, as provided in regulation “0-3” above), the limitation must have the prior approval of the dean of the college in which the course is offered. If it becomes necessary to limit the size of a class on a regular basis, the limitation will be made in part of the official catalog description of the course. Any student denied admission to the class may appeal in writing to the academic vice president for a review of the particular circumstances involved.
    M/S Hay/Swartley: That the above general academic regulation “0-5” be approved. (General curriculum report #23)
    7/6/72 26
    Limitations on Extramural Credits
    The current limitation of thirty-two credits in extramural studies was established before the College Level Examination Program became operative. The use of CLEP examinations make it necessary to increase the allowable total to forty-eight. Therefore, it is recommended that the general academic regulation “J-5” on page 56 of the 1972-73 general catalog, be changed to read:
    5. Credit Limitations. A maximum of forty-eight credits in any combination of credits earned by correspondence study, extension, advanced placement (including CLEP), or credit by examination may be counted toward a baccalaureate degree without petition, and no more than twelve credits earned under the pass-fail option (see regulation “B-11”) may be counted toward a baccalaureate degree.
    M/S Thatcher/Alford: That the above amendment to general academic regulation “J-5” be approved. (Meeting of the University Faculty, May 15, 1972)
    7/6/72 27
    Admission Categories in the Graduate School
    It is recommended that the admission categories in the Graduate School be (a) regular, and (b) unclassified. This action eliminates the fifth-year and provisional categories; however, departments may admit those who would have been in these discontinued categories as either regular or unclassified students in the Graduate School.
    M/S Alford/Engelking: That the admission categories in the Graduate School be changed as recommended above. (General Curriculum Report #23)
    7/6/72 28
    Credit Limitations for Graduate Students
    To avoid the processing of hundreds of student petitions each academic year, it is recommended that general academic regulation “D-2-b” on page 50 of the 1972-73 general catalog, be changed to read:
    b. There is no specified maximum credit limitation during the academic year for graduate students, except that instructional assistants and graduate assistants of Regents appointment are limited to an average of twelve credits (or equivalent in audits, zero-credit enrollments, etc.) during two successive academic-year semesters. Full-time employees of the University may not register for more than six credits (or equivalent) each semester. During the regular eight-week summer session the normal credit load for graduate students is eight credits (or equivalent) with a maximum of ten credits. Exceptions to this regulation require the approval of the dean of the Graduate School.
    M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That general academic regulation “D-2-b” be amended as recommended above. (General Curriculum Report #23)
    7/6/72

    Credits Earned Elsewhere
    At the present time the University does not compute grade points on credits earned at other institutions. It is recommended that this policy be modified to permit University of Idaho students to attend other schools and bring the grade points back to their UI transcripts. To accomplish this, it is recommended that general academic regulation “E-4” on page 52 of the 1972-73 general catalog, be changed by adding the following two sentences after the second sentence (that sentence ends with the words, “on the basis of a P or F”):
    However, credits earned at other recognized institutions which are earned subsequent to regular enrollment for at least one semester or summer session at the University of Idaho are computed for grade-point purposes as if they were earned at the University of Idaho. For the purpose of this regulation, “regular enrollment” does not include enrollment as a non-matriculated student.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That general academic regulation “E-4” be amended as recommended above. (Meeting of the University Faculty, May 15, 1972)

    M/S Swartley/Alford: That a scholarship trust be established in the Consolidated Investment Trust in the name of James E. Kraus, Dean Emeritus of the College of Agriculture and Director of the Agriculture Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Services.
    The committee which established this fund recommends that the contributions accumulated and hereafter received be established as a principal fund which principal along with any capital gains thereon is to remain intact perpetually. The annual income is suggested for use as follows: the selection of the recipient(s) of this scholarship award to be by the Dean of the College of Agriculture or his designated representative. Criteria for award shall be as discretion of such individual with consideration given to the following items: (1) Interest in agriculture- students will be considered for this scholarship only after being registered in the College of Agriculture for at least one complete semester; (2) financial need; and (3) scholastic achievement.
    Memo: at the present time contributions to this fund total $502.50. It is intended that additional funds will be added from alumni contributions.

    Clarence D. Bechtolt Fund for Scholarships
    A lifetime association with agriculture and in particular its agronomic field has given the desire to encourage students in the University of Idaho College of Agriculture to enter the field of Plant Sciences. To sustain this desire the sum of $3,500 is herewith tendered to the Regents of the University of Idaho, College of Agriculture, to establish the Clarence D. Bechtolt Trust Fund for Scholarships in the Department of Plant Science.
    It is desirable that the income from the investment of this trust fund shall be permitted to accumulate to the amount of $500, which sum shall then be used as a scholarship for a sophomore student in the Department of Plant Science. It is intended that the principal (original and any additional contributions) and any capital gains thereon are to remain intact and thus constitute a perpetual program in this area. Succeeding accumulations shall be so used.
    The selection of the recipient of this scholarship shall be by the Department of Plant Science and subject to the approval of the College of Agriculture Scholarship Committee. It is the desire of the donor that the criteria for selection be:
    1. The indication of intent of the student to major in the field of Plant Science.
    2. The financial need of the student.
    3. Integrity and tenacity of the student.
    4. Academic scholarship.
    In the event that a student acceptable for selection not be available, the sum of the scholarship shall be carried forward until such time as one may be available.
    M/S Thatcher/McCollum: that the above Trust be gratefully accepted and included within the Consolidated Investment Trust endowment pool.

    James J. Branom Memorial Scholarship
    After the tragic, accidental death of James J. Branom (graduate 1960, Agriculture, and varsity athlete) friends and members of the family established a trust fund in his memory at the University with details of scholarship award proposal to be finalized at a later date. Provisions have been completed in accordance with desires of the family in representatives of the contributors of the funds and are recommended as follows:
    That all contributions ($1,697.50) comprise the initial fund principal and be invested in the University’s Consolidated endowment pool to establish a perpetual source of award funds and that each fiscal year’s income be awarded as a scholarship the following academic year.
    That awards be made to Lewiston High School seniors who enroll at the University of Idaho with preference given to either basketball or baseball players who have the potential to succeed in a college academic program.
    That nominations be made by Lewiston High School basketball/baseball coaches with final decision to be made by the University of Idaho basketball or baseball coach in collaboration with the Branom family.
    M/S Alford/Engelking: that the above proposal be accepted.

    Granting of Continuing Authority to Accept Research Grants and Awards
    The Bursar, as fiscal agent of the Regents, is currently responsible for checking financial provisions and commitments in each request for a research grant or award. Regents’ approval to submit such applications is then sought, as illustrated by paragraph 4.4 of this agenda. When required, because of timing, if the applications are in order and do not require unusual commitments by the University, the Bursar signs such applications on behalf of the Regents and then secures regents approval in a routine way. Reports on proposals being submitted are also made to the State Planning Office. If the Regents should wish not to approve any specific application, it could be cancelled or withdrawn.
    When research grants and awards are actually received, Regents approval is then sought prior to executing agreement sand contracts involved in accepting grants and awards, as shown by paragraph 4.51 of this agenda. Because of the length of time between Regents meetings, and the increasing number of grants and awards and general administration, it is no longer practical to attempt to clear each agreement and contract involving a research grand or award before accepting it. Accordingly, to expedite and simplify administration, the procedure described below for accepting research grants and awards is recommended.
    M/S Swartley/Alford: That the Bursar be authorized to sign the necessary agreements and contracts to accept research grants and awards, when proposals for such awards have been approved by the Regents, with the understandings that the Bursar will (a) clear with the Regents any commitments or provisions which he considers unusual or questionable, and (b) make routine reports to the Regents on grants and awards accepted.
    7/6/72
    35
    Late Registration Fee
    M/S McCollum/Alford: That the Late Registration Fee of $5 not be imposed after August 1, 1972.
    This action is requested for the following reasons:
    a. Numbers of students have complained that the University’s early starting date conflicts with their summer earning capabilities. We believe that the elimination of this fee will encourage them to realize that late registration is consistent with their needs.
    b. The Late Registration Fee serves no useful function beyond the production of a modest amount of income. Experience indicates that it has no effect on the number of late registration. It does, however, produce a number of irritations among students who feel they have justifiable reasons for registering late. We think that these irritations are not worth the amount of income received, especially when the reason for the fee no longer seems valid.
    7/6/72
    36
    Optional Health Insurance for Student and Dependents
    It is recommended that the current contract for Optional Health Insurance for students and dependents be extended for a one-year term at the following rates as quoted by the Medical Service Bureau:
    Because of problems of timing, arrangements for next school year must now be finalized. Before again arranging for this type of coverage, the possibilities of making changes in this coverage and inviting bids by all interested insurers will be thoroughly considered.
    M/S Munson/Swartley: That extension of the current contract with Medical Service Bureau at the proposed rates be approved.
    7/6/72
    36-37
    Waiver of Registration Fee for NSF SOS Undergraduate Students
    The University of Idaho has again received a National Science Foundation Student Originated Studies grant. NSF requires that the students be registered but will not pay tuition or fees, perhaps assuming this is taken care of by indirect costs which are paid to the University.
    It is requested that the following listed students be permitted to register for one unit of 499 (Directed Study) and that their fees, $18 each, be waived: Edwin Buettner, Mark Buettner, Barbara Hyatt, Ann McDonald, Jim Leonard, Jim Stratton, Bill Fortis, Dave Nesbitt, Randy Hoekstra, Brent Holben, Pat Wendt.
    The regents have previously approved similar requests for fee waivers for students in this program.
    M/S McCollum/Alford: That the above recommendation for waiver of fees for students listed above and any students under similar grants which may be received in subsequent summers be approved.
    7/6/72

    Optional Charge for the Gem of the Mountains
    Re: Regents’ minutes for September 4, 1946, page 14. Paragraph 4.13 on page 5 of this agenda for June 26, 1972.
    In the action first reference above, the Regents authorized each student to be charged $2.50 per semester and to receive one copy of the yearbook, The Gem of the Mountains, without additional charge. The $2.50 fee was included within the ASUI fee. Subsequently, the fee for the yearbook was increased to $3 per semester as a part of the ASUI fee.
    The ASUI Senate has now proposed that, beginning the fall semester of 1972, students who wish to receive a copy of The Gem of the Mountains each pay a supplemental fee of $5. The ASUI Senate has included within the budget for the ASUI for 1972-73, $15,000 to subsidize publication of the yearbook. That budget has been sent to the Regents, and approval of it is requested.
    M/S Thatcher/Munson: That any student wishing to receive a copy of The Gem of the Mountains beginning with the next school year be charged and additional $5 fee to receive this publication.

    Agreement- Colorado State University
    M/S Alford/McCollum: That permission be granted for the Bursar to complete and execute a contract with Colorado State University for the employment of Dr. Gilbert Corey on an assignment in Pakistan. Under this agreement, the University of Idaho will bill Colorado State University for the total cost of Dr. Corey’s salary, allowances, and fringe benefits plus a flat overhead charge of $84 per month during the time this contract is in force. This contract will begin on 15 August 1972 and extend to 14 August 1974. This arrangement is somewhat similar to an agreement with Kansas State University regarding Dr. T. Donald Bell which the Regents approved on 5 May 1972.
    7/6/72

    Scoreboard for University Stadium
    Approval is requested to complete arrangements with the American Sign and Indicator Corporation for the scoreboard for the new stadium. This company is understood to have built the scoreboards at the stadiums at ISU and BSC. The proposed scoreboard which is desired will cost about $20,000, and arrangements are being made for the bulk of this cost to be covered by corporations whose names will appear on the scoreboard. The cost of the University’s contribution for this scoreboard can be covered form a trust fund established through voluntary contributions to support the athletic program. The scoreboard will be mounted at the west end of the stadium. The initial mounting will be temporary- the scoreboard will be moved when the roof is constructed, at the time it is envisioned that a second smaller scoreboard will also be emplaced on the east end wall. In order to have the scoreboard constructed, installed, and available in time for this coming fall, the University had to make a decision and commitment to go ahead with this project before 1 July 1972. Consequently, this matter was cleared with the Regents Executive Committee for the University (except Mr. McCollum who could not be contacted) on 22 and 23 June 1972.
    M/S Swartley/McCollum: That approval for the University of Idaho to contract with the American Sign and Indicator Corporation for a scoreboard for the stadium, as explained above and with the understanding that the University will not pay more than $5,00 toward the cost of this scoreboard, be confirmed, and that the Bursar be authorized to conclude agreement with companies who will be paying part of the costs to the scoreboard and whose names will appear thereon.

    University Property at 706 Deakin Street
    Re: Regents minutes for 1-3 April 1971, page 173
    The house at the above location is across the street to the east of the Student Union Building. It is an old two-story dwelling owned by the University, scheduled to be demolished in 1975 to permit the extension of a parking lot. The condition of the house is such that if major repair costs, such as replacing the furnace, arise it will be economically sensible to remove it before 1975. Therefore, plans for the use of this house until 1975 are being reassessed on a year-by-year basis.
    As authorized by the Regents action referenced above, the house has been used for the past year by the students of the Black Student Union. Evaluation of their program for the year indicates that the original rental agreement has not worked well. Live-in renters have limited use of the house for full development of different programs. It is proposed that effective August 1, 1972 the house no longer be the responsibility of the Family Housing Division, financed on a self-supporting basis, but that the responsibility for maintaining the building be assumed by the Physical Plant Division of the University.
    Under the new arrangement, the house will continue to meet organizational and social needs of minority students, but it will not be used as a residential unit. A comprehensive program is planned for the house to include a reading room, cultural awareness activities, an orientation program for Black students, a Pan-African exchange, and cooperative programs with the Black Studies course of the University. It is proposed that the University provide utilities, except telephone, and cover maintenance and related costs. Students, primarily through the Black Student Union, will be responsible for program development and for funding the operation of the house.
    M/S Engelking/Thatcher: That the responsibility for and use of the property at 706 Deakin Street as proposed above be approved.

    Anti-Discrimination Policy
    At the meeting of the University Faculty 15 May 1972, the following revision of the University’s anti-discrimination policy was approved without dissent. The current policy is on pages 33-34 of the University of Idaho Handbook on Policy and Procedures (1972 edition). Paragraph B represents an addition to the policy. Paragraph A and C are restatements of the current policy.
    Anti-discrimination policy
    A. Practices or regulations which discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, or sex are neither condoned nor permitted in any area of the University’s operation, including personnel appointments, student admissions, housing assignments, use of dining halls, classrooms, or other facilities, and all endeavors of the faculty, staff, and students which may be commonly regarded as sponsored or sanctioned by the university.
    B. The holding of functions, transacting business, or undertaking any official action by an organization, division, department, or similar unit of the University are forbidden at any facility of a lodge, club, or organization which has as its policy the practice of discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, or sex.
    C. Nothing herein shall be deemed to affect the classification of persons based on the differences between males and females or between classes which is not irrational, capricious, or arbitrary at which it utilized to accomplish a lawful purpose (e.g. women’s living groups can exclude men, and men’s living groups can refuse to admit women, and the students with substandard grades can be excluded from honor societies and other groups having minimum grade requirements.)
    M/S Swartley/Munson: That the above revision of the University of Idaho’s anti-discrimination policy be approved.

    Establishing the Academic Year as Base Period for Salary Calculations
    M/S Alford/Engelking: That, effective 1 July 1973, 12-month appointments for instructional personnel will not be funded form the General Education Budget, except for persons performing administrative and support functions which the President determines must be available on a fiscal year basis. Persons on 10 month appointment whose services are needed beyond the limitations of the academic year will receive separate appointments for such services, budgeted from college summer faculty budgets, the Summer Session budget, or such other funds as the President may direct. 12-month appointments may continue where the funding beyond the limits of the academic year can be covered by such separate appropriations as the agricultural Experiment Station, the Cooperative Extension Service, or the Idaho Bureau of Mines and Geology, etc. the academic year service period (9 months) will serve as the base period upon which will be calculated the monthly, weekly, or daily pay rate of University personnel employed on 10-month appointments, and paid additionally for service performed beyond the limits of the academic year.*
    *The above item will be referred to the Financial Vice President for a uniform State Board of Education and Board of Regents of the University of Idaho policy.

    Statement of Professional Ethics
    At the present time the University of Idaho does not have a formal code of ethics for faculty members. The Faculty Affairs committee is in the process of formulating such a code; however, it is expected that it will be some time before it is ready. As an interim measure, it is recommended that the following “Statement of Professional Ethics” (1966) of the American Association of University Professors be approved as a general policy for the University of Idaho.
    Statement of Professional Ethics
    A. The professor, guided by a deep conviction of the worth and dignity of the advancement of knowledge, recognizes the special responsibilities place upon him. His primary responsibility to his subject is to seek and to state the truth as he sees it. To this end he devotes his energies to developing and improving this scholarly competence. He accepts the obligation to exercise critical self-discipline and judgment in using, extending, and transmitting knowledge. He practices intellectual honest. Although he may follow subsidiary interests, these interests must never seriously hamper or compromise his freedom of inquiry.
    B. As a teacher, the professor encourages the free pursuit of learning in his students. He holds before them the best scholarly standards of his discipline. He demonstrates respect for the student as an individual, and adheres to his proper role as intellectual guide and counselor. He makes every reasonable effort to foster honest academic conduct and to assure that his evaluation of students reflects their true merit. He respects the confidential nature of the relationship between professor and student. He avoids any exploitation of students for his private advantage and acknowledges significant assistance from them. He protects their academic freedom.
    C. As a colleague, the professor has obligations that derive from common membership in the community of scholars. He respects and defends the free inquiry of his associates. In the exchange criticism and ideas he shows due respect for the opinions of others. He acknowledges his academic debts and strives to be objective in his professional judgment of colleagues. He accepts his share of faculty responsibilities for the governance of his institution.
    D. As a member of his institution, the professor seeks above all to be an effective teacher and scholar. Although he observes the stated regulations of the institution, provided they do not contravene academic freedom, he maintains his right to criticize and seek revision. He determines the amount and character of the work he does outside his institution with due regard to his paramount responsibilities within it. When considering the interruption or termination of his service, he recognizes the effect of his decision upon the program of the institution and gives due notice of his intentions.
    E. As a member of this community, the professor has the rights and obligations of any citizen. He measures the urgency of these obligations in the light of his responsibilities to his subject, to his students, to his profession, and to his institution. When he speaks or acts as a private person he avoids creating the impression that he speaks or acts for his college or university. AS an citizen engaged in a profession that depends upon freedom for its health and integrity, the professor has a particular obligation to promote conditions of free inquiry and to further public understanding of academic freedom.
    M/S Alford/Swartley: That the above recommendations be approved.

    Campus Traffic and Parking Regulations
    M/S Thatcher/McCollum: That the 1972-73 revision of the campus traffic and parking regulations attached as Exhibit IX be approved, effective August 15, 1972. These regulations do not change in any substantive way regulations which were approved last year by the Regents which are now in effect. Revised regulations were necessary because of such things as changes in the campus map and certain parking lot designations. A copy of Exhibit IX is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Maternity Leave
    To conform to federal guidelines for affirmative action plans, particularly with respect to sex discrimination and reemployment rights, it is recommended that the boards policy relative to maternity leave (Sections 511.2 and 605.2 of the Board Policy Manual for Higher Education Institutions) be revised to read as follows:
    Maternity Leave
    Any female employee whose duties are interrupted by pregnancy and childbirth will be granted maternity leave. Accrued annual leave, if any, and accrued sick leave with pay may be used for this purpose with additional leave without pay for a reasonable period of time, if required. In order to avoid possible misunderstanding concerning the employee’s desire to return to work after childbirth, the employee should request leave without pay rather than resigning from her position. Upon return from maternity leave, the employee must be given either her original job or a position of like status and pay. The time when a woman leaves before childbearing is normally a matter between the employee and her physician. Similarly, the time of her return to work is subject to the same guidelines.
    M/S Munson/Hay: That Sections 511.2 and 605.2 of the Board’s Policy Manual for Higher Education Institutions be changed as recommended above.
    7/6/72
    45-46
    Promotions Upon Retirement
    Over the years it has occasionally occurred that President’s Office has received recommendations for promotion of retiring members of the faculty. Such promotions have sometimes permitted over-due recognition for individuals in the listing of emeriti in the catalog. No cost to the University is involved. At the present time there is no policy statement covering these promotion; therefore, the following statement is recommended:
    Promotions upon retirement may be considered in individual cases and granted under unusual circumstances with the recommendation of the dean and approval by the President.
    M/S McCollum/Alford: That the above policy relating to promotions upon retirement be approved. (Meeting of the University Faculty, 15 May 1972)
    7/6/72

    Curricular Affairs
    M/S Munson/Swartley: That the University of Idaho be authorized to offer courses on campus for resident credit on a self-supporting basis during intersessions, vacations and other and other periods when the university is not in formal session for instruction. (For information of the Board of Regents, this policy will be administered according to the regulations approved by the Faculty as Exhibit X. A copy of this is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.)

    Investment Policy
    There is about $3 million worth of assets in the Consolidated Investment Trust and the bulk of this invested in common stock. The trust is composed of over 80 separate trusts which the Financial Affairs Office of the University administers on behalf of the Regents. The trusts provide scholarships and accomplish other purposes as specified by the persons who established the trusts, in accordance with agreements with the Regents approved when the trusts were established. The Bursar is directly responsible to the regents for the overall management and performance of the Consolidated Investment Trust. The Business Manager has been designated by the Bursar as Investment Officer and is responsible to the bursar for the immediate management of the Consolidated Investment Trust and for assuring that the University adheres to the various trust agreements.
    It is necessary to make changes in the portfolio from time to time. Every purchase and sale of securities has been cleared with the regents prior to the time that the transaction was executed. In recent months such changes in the portfolio have been approved by the Executive Committee of the University and later ratified by the Board. Regents are not always immediately accessible, and it is inefficient and inconvenient to discuss each proposed transaction with Regents individually. This situation has been discussed with the auditors from Price Waterhouse and Company, and they have suggested that a general statement of investment policy be adopted by the Board of Regents and that they authorize the Bursar to execute security transactions within the limits of the stated policy, without their prior approval of specific transactions.
    To permit adoption of this recommendation, a statement of Investment Objectives and a Statement of Investment Authority and Procedures are attached as Exhibits XI and XII, respectively. With further experience, specific recommendations will be made to the Regents to modify and improve these statements. However, adoption of the statements at this time will be helpful and is recommended. The Bursar will promptly report security transactions to the Regents and will also submit detailed annual reports on the Consolidated Investment Trust. This, along with general instructions to the Bursar as provided by the aforementioned statements, should give the Regents adequate control, since (a) related financial matters are audited and reported upon by independent auditors, (b) bonded coverage in the amount of $500,000 is maintained against dishonesty by the Bursar or Business Manager, and (c) these University officials hold their positions at the pleasure of the Board, and only as long as the Board is satisfied with their performance.
    M/S McCollum/Swartley: That the statements of Investment Objectives and Investment Authority and Procedures attached as Exhibits XI and XII be approved.

    Submissions of Report on Student Health Program
    Record is mad of the fact that a Report of a Survey of the Health Program of the University of Idaho, made by a team from the American College Health Association during the period 15-18 February 1972, and received by the University on June 9, 1972 was mailed to the Regents on June 19, 1972.

    Report on Consolidation of Bank Accounts
    Eight principal operating accounts are used at this time to transact University business. These accounts are held in the First Security Bank of Idaho, Idaho First National Bank, and Bank of Idaho. To promote efficiency and to help make better use of funds committed as compensating balances, action is now being taken to consolidate these eight banks, with this consolidation, efforts will be made to maintain about the same comparative level of banking activity at each of the banks; that is, to arrange for each bank to continue to hold about the same proportion of the University’s business as it now holds, in relation to the other banks. However, in accordance with recommendations of Price Waterhouse and other auditors, discussions with regents and regents policy established elsewhere in this agenda, the University is following a continually more sophisticated approach in its temporary investment of cash. This is resulting and will result in smaller cash balances being held by banks doing business with the University and in the University negotiating with various Idaho banks to secure the highest level of service commensurate with the lowest service cost, in accordance with recommendations of the Legislative Auditor. Related policies, procedures, and objective governing the University banking relationships are outlined in Exhibit XII of this agenda.

    Approval to Grant Degrees- Summer 1972
    M/S Munson/McCollum: That degrees be granted to persons who completed requirements for degrees this past summer and who have been approved by the Faculty, as certified by the Registrar. About 59 baccalaureate and 127 advanced degrees are involved. Names of the persons receiving degrees will appear in the copy of the 1973 Commencement program officially confirmed by the Registrar, a copy of which will be forwarded to the Office of Higher Education for permanent file.

    Changes in General Academic Regulations
    The following changes in the general academic regulations were approved by the University Faculty at the meeting of 13 September 1972. The changes are primarily to clear up technical problems.
    1. Add the following new general academic regulation “F-3” on page 53 of the 1972-73 general catalog and renumber the existing paragraph 3 as 4:
    a. An incomplete in a required course received by a candidate for a degree or certificate at the end of the semester or summer session in which the requirements for the diploma are otherwise completed reverts immediately to the grade specified by the instructor with the class list; however, the student is permitted to complete the course work involved within the required time limit and raise the grade on the permanent record.
    2. Add the following new general academic regulation “L-1-c” on page 58 of the 1972-73 general catalog:
    a. A student on academic probation who attains a grade-point average of 2.00 or higher during the next or subsequent semester after being placed on probation, but is still below the minimum cumulative grade-point average required to for his or her rank, remains on academic probation.
    3. Change general academic regulation “L-2” on page 58 of the 1972-73 general catalog to read:
    a. A student on academic probation will be disqualified at the end of a probationary semester unless the minimum cumulative grade-point average required for his or her rank, or a semester grade-point average of at least 2.00, is attained. After being academically disqualified, the student must be reinstated in order to re-register.
    4. Change the second sentence of general academic regulation “B-2” on pages 46-47 of the 1972-73 general catalog to read:
    a. The information is then transcribed to the student’s official registration card which is approved by his or her adviser and is checked by such procedures as the student’s college may require.
    5. Shorten the first sentence of general academic regulation “J-2-a” on page 55 of the 1972-73 general catalog to read:
    a. After a candidate is within forty credits of completing the total number of credits required for the baccalaureate degree, he or she must complete in residence, on the University of Idaho campus, a minimum of thirty-two credits. (Delete rest of sentence.)
    b. Further, that other regulations be amended to conform to this change in the first sentence of “J-2-a.”
    M/S Thatcher/Engelking: That the above changes in the general academic regulations be approved.
    10/20/72
    51-52
    David D. Kendrick Memorial
    M/S Alford/McCollum: That a trust fund be established in the Consolidated Investment Trust in the name of David D. Kendrick, deceased dean of the College of Business and Economics. Mrs. Kendrick has requested that the contributions accumulated, which total $1,500, and hereafter received be established as a principal fund, which principal along with any capital gains thereon is to remain intact perpetually, with the annual income used as follows:
    1. A committee to select an annual recipient of an award be chaired by professor Robert Clark and be composed to the following members: to the current advisor of Alpha Kappa Psi; Mrs. Phyliss Veien, secretary to the Dean of the College of Business and Economics; Mr. Kelly Roberts and Mr. Rube Junes of Lewiston; and Charles O. Decker, Director of Student Financial Aids at the University of Idaho.
    2. The award, to be suitably inscribed wristwatch, is to be made to a senior graduating from the College of Business and Economics at the University of Idaho who has encountered and overcome exceptional obstacles (either in this financial or personal life) while earning his degree.
    3. In order to make the award effective in 1972, the sum of $100 has been allocated from capital to purchase the first watch.
    Note: The above provisions are in accord with Mrs. Kendrick’s requests. To make it possible to administer this trust agreement, to provide for a more flexible composition for the committee to select award recipients and for the committee to award more than one wristwatch then earnings from this fund permit. If she agrees, we will make such minor changes in the trust agreement without referring this matter again to the Regents.

    Waiver of Out-of-State Tuition
    This is to document the fact that, in accordance with a request of Dean Ehrenreich, President Hartung, after securing the approval of the Regents’ Executive Committee for the University, authorized the waiver of out-of-state tuition for Gerald Michael Allen who is employed for the current academic year as a one-half time instructor in Forest Management.

    Financing for the Performing Arts Center
    Re: Regents’ minutes for May, 1972, pages 79-80
    The above reference authorized the calling for bids for Phase I for the Performing Arts Center and acceptance of the lowest responsive bids for this work, if it could be completed within funds then projected to be available, which amounted to $970,542.64. On 29 June 1972, from six contractors for this project were opened, as summarized on Exhibit IX. All of these bids were considerably over the architect’s estimates then the funds available for this work, so the University was faced with a real dilemma. Nobody felt that we could get lower bids later, since costs will continue to accelerate along with construction projected for Expo 74 in Spokane. The building would not be properly functional if it were reduced in size. A copy of Exhibit IX is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.
    This situation was discussed with Regents individually by telephone, because of the need to either accept or reject bids received for this work, and to cover the additional cost of about $250,000 from other University, non-appropriated sources, was requested and obtained. As explained to regents at that time, the additional cost can be covered by reserves in the Classroom Building Bond Redemption Fund, which are in excess of those required by the bond indenture.
    The total cost for the construction of the building and related work which should be done in connection with the building is expected to amount to about $1,226,615, as shown by Exhibit IXa. After Regents approval to do so was obtained, contracts were signed with the low bidder, Halvorson-Berg of Spokane, on 20 July 72, and work on this building is now in progress.
    M/S McCollum/Alford: That the telephone approval obtained previously, to proceed with construction of the Preforming Arts Center, as described above, be ratified by formal Board Action.

    Scoreboard for University Stadium
    Re: Regents’ minutes for July 1972, page 40
    The above reference authorized the Bursar to sign a contract for a scoreboard for the new stadium for about $20,000 with the understandings that the University of Idaho would not pay more than $5,000 toward the cost of the scoreboard and the rest of the cost would be paid for by certain corporations. As it develop the total cost of the scoreboard amounted to $22,059 and two corporations contributed $14,000 toward this cost. Commitments had to be made promptly, in order to get the scoreboard build and installed prior to the first football game. This situation was discussed with members of the Regent’s Executive Committee for the University and their concurrence for the University to pay the remaining cost of the scoreboard was secured, with the understanding that this expenditure would be made from a trust fund established through voluntary contributions to support the athletic program.
    M/S Munson/Hay: that the $8,059 expenditure mentioned above be ratified.
    10/20/72

    Married Student Housing
    Re: 1. Regents minutes for March 1972, pages 62 and 63, 2. Circular Letter, Serial No. 1971-72-29, dated 6 April 1972.
    Reference 1 reported on the married student housing situation at the University and reference 2 secured Regents’ authority to construct 20 two-bedroom apartments. These units are now completed and occupied, renting for $120 a month unfurnished. While these units were being constructed, this past summer, 29 units of married student housing were acquired about 1946 as surplus units from a military base were removed. Six “South Hill Homes” were also removed at that time. The University still has 18 of these latter units. As reported in reference 1 above, “These unites are small frame houses build in 1946 and 1947. They are now worn out and we are completing estimates and plans for their removal.” Fourteen of the 18 unites have two-bedrooms and rend for $85 a month and four of the houses are three-bedroom and rent for $95 a month.
    Regents’ authority is requested at this time to remove the 18 remaining “South Hill Homes” at the end of the current school year and to replace them with 20 new two-bedroom apartments similar to the units just constructed, as authorized by reference 2 above. These unites would be ready for occupancy next fall and would rent, unfurnished, for about $120 a month. It would be possible to convert some of these units to three bedroom and one bedroom units. This conversion could be made at the time after the units are constructed and installed, if a special need for other than two bedroom units should develop.
    Reference 2 authorized the expenditure of not to exceed $350,000 for the 20 units of housing completed this past summer. The cost incurred for this development will be about $336,204. We feel that we got a very good deal on these units, and we now have an offer to continue this contract to provide for the 20 additional units mentioned in the previous paragraph. This complete development, to include removing the existing units and extending utilities and roads, etc. is expected to cost about $350,522. It would be in the University’s best interest to proceed with this project, since the replacement housing is needed and since an important cost savings is expected if arrangements for this replacement can be made at this time. The Prices we have been given will hold through 25 October, 1972. That is, to get these prices, contracts must be consummated by that time.
    The cost of this development can be covered by rental income without placing any additional requirement on the University’s general operating budget. Financing for this project will be available as follows:
    Balance available after constructing last 20 units* $62,158.73; Notes repayment from South Hill Town Houses project $60,000.00; Housing Reserves $232,163.27. Total Funds available $354,322.00.
    *This includes a flood damage reimbursement of $42,369 from the federal government for damage to units now removed, as reported in item 13.2, “Receipt of Federal Disaster Relief Funds,” Circular Letter 1972-73-10, dated 19 July 1972.
    M/S Engelking/Alford: That approval be given to remove the existing 18 “South Hill Homes” and extend the existing contract with Boise Cascade Corporation to construct an additional 20 units of married student housing similar to the units just completed, with the understanding that this development can be completed within the funds available for this work as shown above. If necessary to cover initial financing requirements, the Bursar is authorized to borrow up to $150,000 of this amount from other university sources or through short-term bank loans.

    Anti-Discrimination Policy
    Since approval of the policy statement referenced above, a suggestion has been made that the work “age” be added to Paragraph A and Paragraph B following the word “color” and preceding the words “national origin.” This further amendment is now recommended to the Board for approval.
    M/S Alford/Engelking: That the amendment described above be approved.

    Definition of "Faculty Member" for Tenure, Non-Tenure, Dismissal, or Termination
    e: Board’s Policy Manual, Section 501.12
    In compliance with the above section of the Board’s Policy Manual, the University of Idaho formulated a broad definition covering faculty status for the purpose of identifying individuals qualified to vote in meetings of the University Faculty. That broad definition received Board approval in 1968. Since 1968 it has become clear that a more precise definition of “faculty member” is needed for the purpose of applying the Boards policies on tenure, non-tenure, dismissal, or termination to situations at the University of Idaho. For example, it needs to be made clear that a visiting professor- while he may participate with vote in meetings of the University Faculty- does not qualify as a “faculty member” for the purposes of tenure, etc.
    In charging each school with the responsibility to develop its own criteria, the Board recognized the basic differences among the state colleges and universities. The University of Idaho has the Cooperative Extension Faculty and does not have a Vocational-Technical Faculty. Therefore, the following definitions fits the needs of the University of Idaho and probably would not meet the needs of the other institutions.
    Definitions of “Faculty Member” for Tenure, Etc.
    For the purpose of applying the Board’s policies on tenure, non-tenure, dismissal, or termination (currently Section 513 of the Board’s Policy Manual) to situations at the University of Idaho, the words “faculty member” shall mean and be limited to any individual holding the academic rank of instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, or professor, including these ranks in the research and extension categories, and excluding individuals: (1) whose appointments are temporary, such as acting or visiting, (2) whose positions may be terminated by another agency, either directly or by the withdrawal of support funds, and/or (3) whose salaries are not administered by the university.
    M/S Munson/Hay: That the above definition be approved.

    School of Communication
    M/S Alford/Thatcher: that the Departments of Radio-Television, Journalism, and Speech be regrouped as a School of Communication, to be located in the College of Letters and Science, and to be administered by a Director, who will be employed on the budget vacancy created by the retirement of Professor Whitehead in the Department of Drama-Speech. It is further approved that the Department of Drama-Speech be divided into two separate departments. No new faculty will be added for this purpose.
    Two goals are sought in this action. The primary one is to group our Communication faculties in such a way as to encourage the development of a concept of basic Communication Science as the philosophical and educational underpinning of our professional communication disciplines of Radio-TV and Journalism. The view of Communication Science as a Behavioral Science, rather than as a forensic exercise, will make possible the modernization of our Speech curriculum. We also envisage the re-casting of the discipline of Photography as a Communication medium.
    The other goal is tangential to the establishment of the School of Communication; but explains the separation of Drama from Speech. We are not now prepared to make a recommendation in the area of performing arts; but for information of the Board we wish to report that our areas of Music, Drama, and Dance have been working for over a year to develop a faculty structure within the College of Letters and Science which would bring the Performing Arts disciplines into closer contact with each other. This project has received additional impetus from the start of the construction of the Performing Arts Center. A recommendation will be forthcoming during the current year. Meanwhile, the philosophical thrusts of drama and speech are becoming more divergent. Consequently, the separation of these faculties is desirable.
    These recommendations are not accompanied by either curriculum proposals or faculty increase proposals. These kinds of questions will be the work of the reconstituted faculties to consider.
    The matter of a School of Communication was discussed with the Board of Regents last winter. Although no action was requested at that time, the Board was advised that we were both preparing a recommendation and recruiting candidates for appointment to the Directorship. Elsewhere in this agenda we recommend the appointment of Dr. Don Coombs, of Stanford University, as Director.

    Self-Supporting Workshops in Summer Session
    In July 1972, the University was authorized by Regents action to offer financially self-supporting courses “during intersessions, vacations, and other periods when the university is not in formal session for instruction.” Authority is no requested to allow special workshops to be offered on a self-supporting basis during the Summer Session. Plans are currently being made to offer workshops on this basis in “Coaching Sports for Women,” and in guitar.
    M/S Alford/McCollum: that the Office of Special Programs be allowed to administer special workshops on specific subjects for limited periods during the Summer Session. It is understood that these workshops will be held for a shorter period than the regular Summer Session calendar, and that each such workshop will be directed toward special clientele which is readily identifiable and whose fees can be expected to finance the cost of instruction.

    Exception to General Travel Regulations
    In connection with certain research contracts, it becomes necessary for staff members to undertake extended trips to remote areas, such as Alaska, Africa, etc. In some of these areas, living costs are exceptionally high, and the University’s limitation of $7.50 per day for meals is not adequate, nor necessary, when justifiable costs can be charged to the granting agency. At this time, for example, University personnel are involved with a sport fisheries research contract in Alaska where they report that federal per diem rates are $40 per day. They have requested that on this contract in Alaska they be allowed $15 per day for meals and that they not be required to submit substantiating receipts for these meals. To facilitate operations in such cases, the following action is recommended:
    M/S Hay/Engelking: That the Bursar be authorized to approve exceptions to general travel regulations in cases where economic conditions warrant and where the provision of the specific agreement funding the program permit. This will not apply to travel paid by the general operating budget of the university.

    Financial Reports
    A. McConnell Hall Bond Issue
    The university was able to purchase an open bond market $85,000.00 face amount of the above noted bonds for $74,250.50. These bonds yield 3.20% on face value and are due from 1973 through 1980. Since these bonds are callable only at a premium and because of the discount factor, the purchase was advantageous. Bond redemption sinking funds were used to purchase these bonds and those cited immediately below.
    B. University Classroom Building Bonds
    The University was able to purchase in the open bond market $200,000.00 face amount of the above noted bond for $151,078.00. These bonds yield 3.70% on face value and are due from 1991-1994. These bonds were also only callable at a premium.
    C. Athletic Facilities Notes
    On 1 October 1972, final payment was made of loans by Idaho banks for the financing of the swimming facility at the University. This was a $1,120,000.00 obligation.
    D. Bank Accounts Used by the University
    On 1 July 1972, the University had 29 active bank accounts. Since that time, three of these were eliminated as special collection accounts for extension and experimental station purposes, and eight principal operating accounts were consolidated into three, eliminating an additional five accounts. Presently 21 accounts remain: 3 general operational accounts as noted above an 18 special purpose accounts. To facilitate cash management, we plan to further reduce the number of special purpose bank accounts, although complete elimination of such accounts is not envisioned because of provisions in trust indentures applying to various bond issues.

In accordance with the Boards resolution of 4-5 May 1972, the changes do not increase the number of credits offered.
    1. Effective with the 1973074 academic year, change MUST 383, Music in the secondary schools, 3 credits, to read: MUST 383 Principles in Music Teaching (3 cr) Students in the School of Music take this course in lieu of Ed. 468 Philosophy, principle, curriculum, and organization of the school music program. Prereq: MusC 122 or 142.
    2. Drop current graduate practicum and internship courses (present courses may continue to be offered as scheduled this year) and authorize, at the discretion of departments, the following standard course entries in all subject fields having regents approval to offer graduate degrees. Departments are authorized, at their option, to grade these courses on the basis of P or F, to limit the number of credits students may earn, and to use different course numbers if using the standard numbers would conflict with courses whose numbers should not be changed.
    M/S Thatcher/Alford: That the above changes be approved.

    Engineering Fund
    Report is made of the current situation which exists in regard to one of the Trusts included in the Consolidated Investment Fund, as follows:
    Engineer’s Fund
    In 1970 Edward L. and Rose G. Ernsberger established by Trust indenture with the Regents the Engineer’s Fund- an endowed scholarship. As of 30 June 1972 these assets consisted of $4,505.64 plus a defaulted conditional sales contract payable monthly at a rate of $210.26. The contract balance as of 14 December 1970 was $31,022.14. The attorney for Mr. and Mrs. Ernsberger, who drew up the original trust indenture also instituted action against the defaulted purchaser and managed to reinstate the contract through July 1972 (Balance #30,435.29). The contract is now again in default and the California attorney has recommended foreclosure proceedings. The Financial Affairs Office and the University Attorney concur in his recommendation and have asked him to follow through in protection of these assets.

    Authority to Update Signatures with Bachelor of Science Degrees
    It has been the tradition at the University of Idaho for Bachelor of Science degrees in the professional colleges to carry a signature designating the processional curriculum completed by the student (e.g. Bachelor of Science in Business). The degree names currently authorized are reflective of the curricula which were in existence at the time the various colleges were established. For example, when the former School of Forestry (now the College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Range Sciences) offered only a curriculum in forestry, the Bachelor of Science in Forestry was the appropriate degree. However, a BS “in Forestry” is no longer appropriate for a student majoring in wildlife-fishery resources, a curriculum added some years after the college was established.
    For some time the faculty have been considering various means for identifying more precisely each student’s particular professional area. One proposal was to drop the subject signature from the degree name (leaving only Bachelor of Science) to show the student’s major on the diploma. This proposal was rejected by the general University faculty because many people felt that such a step would destroy the uniqueness of the Bachelor of Science degree which was offered in the College of Letters and Science. The BS degree (with no subject signature) in L&S is considered by some to represent more breadth in liberal studies than the BS curricula offered in the professional colleges.
    The solution recommended by the general University faculty at the meeting of 15 November 1972 is as follows:
    In those instances where it is desirable to have more accurately named BS degrees, the faculties of the professional colleges are authorized, at their discretion, to offer a separately-named BS degree for each BS curriculum (or selected BS curricula) which has been approved by the Regents.
    If the Board approves the above recommendation, it is expected that the faculty of the College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Range Sciences will be by resolution and discontinue the degree of “Bachelor of Science in Forestry,” as such, and replace it with the following separate degrees which would be reflective of the four authorized curricula offered:
    Bachelor of Science in Forest Resources; Bachelor of Science in Range Resources; Bachelor of Science in Wildlife-Fishery Resources; Bachelor of Science in Wood Utilization
    It is also expected that the faculties of other professional colleges will make similar changes (the College of Engineering and the College of Mines already have a separately named BS degree for each curriculum).
    It should be emphasized that no new programs are involved. The only request being made is for a delegation of authority to the faculties of the professional colleges so that they may update the subject signatures that constitute in each instance a part of the official name of the BS degree.
    M/S McCollum/Engelking: that the above recommendation be approved.

    7. Between the University of Idaho and Washington State University establishing procedures for mutual support of academic and research efforts. In essence, this agreement provides for the establishing of deposit accounts by either institution at the other to cover research, instructional, or other services at the other institution effective 1 October 1972 until terminated.
    8. Between the University of Idaho, Department of Home Economics, and the Spokane County Health District Covering the Dietetics Practicum program. The agreement involves no direct cost to the University.

    Submission of Audit Reports
    A report from Price Waterhouse & Co., “Recommendation for Improving Internal Auditing Controls and Administrative Efficiency,” dated 30 June 1972 was forwarded to the Regents by Circular Letter No. 1972-73-10, dated 19 July 1972. Submitted herewith as Exhibit VI is the principal audit report by the University’s external auditors. This 28 page report presents financial statements with the customary auditor’s opinion that the statements present fairly the financial position and operations of the University. A summation of information presented in these financial statements will be given in the President’s Annual Report which will be available next month to persons who wish to receive copies of it. Additional copies of Exhibit VI will be filed in the Office of Higher Education and in the Office of the Financial Vice President at the University of Idaho for study by any persons who wish to review the report.
    Also filed in those offices will be copies of two additional reports received from Price Waterhouse and Co. both dated 13 October 1972. The one report presents financial statements resulting from the audit of the Associated Students of the University of Idaho and the other report is on the National Defense Student Loan Program at the University of Idaho. The auditors opinion statements on each of these reports are attached to these agenda materials as Exhibits VII and VIII. If any Regent wishes to have a copy of either of these reports it will be provided on request.
    A copy of Exhibits VI, VII, and VIII is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit. A copy of the Price Waterhouse & Co. report of the “University of Idaho Foundation, Inc., Financial Statements, June 30, 1972” is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Employment of Auditors
    Re: Regents’ Minutes for December 1971, page 71.
    The above reference provides for the employment of external auditors to conduct the annual audit of the University for last fiscal year. Approval of arrangements for the next annual audit is now requested, in order for the auditor to schedule and conduct work at the University during the next registration period.
    It is recommended that Price Waterhouse & Co. be designated as the external auditor for the University of Idaho for this fiscal year. We have been well pleased with the help and recommendations received from this firm. Remaining with this same auditing firm will facilitate continued improvements in accounting which are now being made and will now permit certain economies, because of the familiarity of that firm with the University of Idaho. Specifically, because of this factor, and because the University is strengthening its internal auditing function, we expect to reduce payments to the external auditor by over $10,000 next fiscal year. A letter from Price Waterhouse & Co. concerning their proposal for auditing the University of Idaho next fiscal year is attached as Exhibit IX.
    M/S Swartley/Thatcher: That the proposal for Price Waterhouse & Co. to conduct the annual audit of the University of Idaho for fiscaly year 1972-73, as outlined by Exhibit IX, be approved.
    A copy of the Exhibit is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    McElroy Property
    In the spring of 1969, J.W. Watts received authority from the Regents to negotiate for the purchase of property located at 404 College Avenue. This property is specifically described as: the East one-half of lots 7, 8, and 9, Block 1, of Urquhart’s addition to the City of Moscow. A rental house (old) is situated on this property constituting of three rental units and a double garage. Negotiations at that time resulted in an impasse. In the interim period the owner, Mrs. Marian McElroy died. Her daughter, Mrs. James D. Archibald (and also executrix of the estate) has recently indicated a desire to sell the property to the University. Two appraisals received by her from two different real estate firms in Moscow value the property “at around $25,000.” We feel this appraisal fair and reasonable. This property is desirable for immediate usage as rental units operated within our Family housing Operations. It is of much further value to the University for long-term possibilities as it is presently the only parcel on the one-half block on which it is located that is not owned by the University. We accordingly request approval to purchase this property with Family Housing Funds.
    M/S McCollum/Alford: That the Bursar be authorized to purchase for the University property as described above.

    Change of Name- Department of Drama
    On 20 October 1972 the Board of Regents authorized the separation of the Department of Drama and Speech into two separate departments. This was for the purpose of placing Speech in the new School of Communication. The faculty in Drama, supported by the other faculties in the performing arts (Music and Dance) has requested that the new Drama department be named the Department of Theatre Arts.
    M/S Hay/Alford: That the faculty in Drama be organized, effective 20 October 1972, into a Department of Theatre Arts. This action includes authority for the necessary catalog changes listed below (effective at the beginning of the academic year (1973-74):
    1. Redesignate Drama courses as Theatre Arts (ThA) courses.
    2. Change the name of major programs in Drama (MA, BA, BS, BFA) to Theatre Arts
    3. Change the name of the degree of Master of Arts in Teaching Drama-Speech to Master of Arts in Teaching Theatre Arts-Speech (MATThA-Sp)
    4. Change the name of the teaching majors and minors in Dram and Drama-Speech (those accompanying major curricula in the College of Education) to Theatre Arts and Theatre Arts-Speech.

    The Dance program at the University of Idaho has been operated in the Women’s Section of the Department of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, with on-campus extension of the program in Orchesis. In order to emphasize the coordination now growing in the area of Performing Arts, we wish to rename the Orchesis portion of the program the Center for Dance.
    M/S Alford/Hay: That the program in Orchesis be redesignated the Center for Dance.

    University of Idaho Research Foundation, Inc.
    As indicated in Article IV, Section 4 of the Bylaws for the Research Foundation, a copy of which was forwarded as Exhibit XIV to agenda materials for the October 1972 Regents’ meeting, the Treasurer of the Foundation is responsible for “the custody of all monies and securities of the Foundation and shall keep the drafts upon the funds of the Foundation. He shall likewise perform all other duties incident to his office.” For the past several years, the University Bursar has been responsible for the receipt, custody, disbursement, and related accounting for Research Foundation assets. This responsibility stems from an action reported in the Regents minutes for December 1958, page 28, as follows:
    “It was moved by Mr. Peacock, seconded by Mr. Eaton, and carried that the following action taken by the Directors of the University of Idaho Research Foundation on October 8, 1958 be ratified and cooperative action by the University Bursar be approved:
    “As Treasurer, he shall deposit all monies and securities of the Foundation with the Regents of the Univeristy of Idaho in a Trustees Account with the Bursar of the University of Idaho Disbursements shall be made upon the written order of the Treasurer as authorized by the Directors of the Foundation.”
    The Board of Directors of the Foundation has indicated that it feels it would be advantageous for the Foundation to return to the Treasurer of the Foundation the responsibilities specified in the bylaws, as reported above. Since the Research Foundation is a separate corporate entity, and its expenditures approved by its own officers, there seems to be not need to have its expenditures approved through the University Business Office. At this time the assets for the Research Foundation are held in a trust account. Considering obligations of which we are now aware, the total amount of the trust account for the Research Foundation now amounts to about $2,500. In addition, the Bursar holds about 21 patents and copyrights which are property of the Research Foundation. The potential value of these is unknown, but to this date, only minimal income has been received from these patents and copyrights. The following action is recommended:
    M/S Engelking/Swartley: That the Bursar be authorized to turn over to the University of Idaho Research Foundation, Inc., all assets including official documents of this Foundation with the understanding that henceforth the Treasurer for the Research Foundation shall be responsible for the receipt, custody, disbursement, and accounting for assets of that Foundation, as specified in the Foundation’s bylaws.

    Routine Catalog Changes
    The University Curriculum Committee recommends approval of the Following catalog changes, subject to the concurrence of the University Faculty via usual procedures now in progress (the overlap of time frames is needed to comply with catalog production deadlines). In accordance with the Board’s resolution of 4-5 May 1972, these changes do not increase the number of credits offered.
    Some explanation of the addition of Drama 150 (Convocation) and standard course 599 (Research) is in order to illustrate that these courses do not increase the number of credits offered: The zero-credit convocation courses are currently required to do: the entry for research would make it possible for departments to distinguish “research” for an independent nature from “directed study” (which most often is descriptive of assigned, supervised readings). At the present time all graduate research not directly related to the thesis or dissertation is shown as “directed study,” and many departmetns feel that this is not a correct description of the activity.
    1. Effective immediately, change the description of Chem 418 and For (FWR) ID414 by adding (Graded on the basis of P or F” to the description.
    2. Effective second semester, 1972-73:
    a. Change Eng 443 (3cr) to read: Language Variation (3cr). Geographic and social dialects (e.g. Black English); levels of formality and their linguistic consequences; the literary use of language variation (as in Dickens and Hardy, Twain and Faulkner); occupational dialects and jargons. Prereq. Or coreq. 441 or perm.
    b. Authorize the following standard course in all subject fields in which graduate degrees are offered (see explanation above):
    i. 599 Research (cr arr) Research not directly related to a thesis or dissertation. Prereq: perm.
    ii. (No department shall be required to add this standard entry at this time; however, it is understood that the course shall be authorized for listing in the catalog whenever departments have the need.)
    3. Effective with the 1973-74 academic year:
    a. Change the number of Animal Industries WS598 to WS596.
    b. Change the number of Business R597-R598 to R595-596.
    c. Change the number of Geography 597 to 598.
    d. Change the number of Drama 263 to 163.
    e. Add (see explanation above): Dr. (ThA) 150 Convocation (0 cr). For majors. Attendance at designated drama labs and events. Graded on the basis of P or F. on session per wk.
    4. Drop current undergraduate workshop courses (present courses may continue to be offered as scheduled this academic year and during the 1973 summer sessions) and authorize, at the discretion of departments, the following standard course entries in all subject fields: 203, 403 (s) Workshop (cr arr), Prereq: perm. Departments are authorized, at their option, to grade these courses on the basis of P or F, or on a regular-grade basis, to limit the number of credits students may earn, and to use different course numbers in the 200/400 series, if using the standard numbers would conflict with courses currently offered.
    M/S Alford/Thatcher: that the above catalog changes be approved.

    Request for Deficiency Appropriations
    M/S McCollum/Thatcher: That the Office of Higher Education be authorized to take action to obtain from the State Legislature a deficiency appropriation for the University of Idaho in the amount of $19,347.46 for this fiscal year, as soon as possible after the first regular session of the 42nd Idaho Legislature convenes.
    The action is necessary since the State Auditor’s Office did not process payroll voucher #2825 from the University of Idaho before the close of business on June 30, 1972. The voucher was submitted and the charge should have been made against last year’s appropriation. Instead, the voucher was processed on July 3, 1972, against this year’s appropriation. This situation is explained in detail by Exhibit XV, along with the fact that the State Auditor, Mr. Joe Williams, and the State Budget Officer, Mr. Dennis E. Chilberg, have indicated that they would support a request for the above mentioned deficiency appropriation.
    We previously understood that the Office of Higher Education would be able to follow through to get the deficiency appropriation, but were instructed about November 28, 1972, that the University of Idaho should submit this agenda item to obtain Regent’s approval for the Office of Higher Education to process this matter.

    Swimming Pool Fees
    Re: Circular Letter 1972-73-12, Confirmed 7-8 September 1972
    The above reference established the current schedule for charges to non-students who use the University Swimming Pool. Complaints and suggestions have been received concerning that schedule, and authority to amend it as follows is requested:
    a. University employees, students, student spouses, and persons retired from the University and their spouses will be admitted without charge.
    b. Each other person, to include the children of students and the spouses and children of University employees, will be charged 50¢ each time he wishes to use the pool, unless he has a pass as explained below.
    c. The charge for passes will be $10 per person per semester or summer school if purchased for a semester or for summer school, or $20 per person per year, if purchased for a year, or $50 per family per year.
    d. Annual passes, sold for $20 to an individual or $50 to a family, will be for the entire fiscal year. No guarantees are made as to the number of hours per day or days per week that the pool will be open for use by persons who purchase passes. However, it is now envisioned that the pool will be open to the public about 10 hours per week. The amount of time the pool actually is open for public use will be determined by such factors and the University’s need for the pool, maintenance requirements, and operating costs.
    e. Persons who have already bought tickets for this school year for $25 will be allowed refunds in the amount of the applicable reduced rate, upon the presentation of their receipts at the Business Office.
    f. The University President is authorized to approve rates to be charged to any group who may be permitted to use the pool. He is also authorized to change the above schedule of charges, when appropriate, so that persons using the pool pay for costs which they help cause to be incurred, and so that costs for operating the swimming center borne by the General Operating Budget are minimized.
    M/S McCollum/Alford: That effective January 1973 the basis for charging for use of the University Swimming center be as outlined above.

    Student Health Center
    M/S Munson/McCollum: To adopt the following plan for Student Health Center:
    At the October, 1972, meeting of the Board of Regents a proposal for a $7.00 per semester increase in the student health fee was referred to the Executive Committee for further study.
    In an effort to weigh questions raised in the Regents’ meeting and to reevaluated the entire proposal, the Student Health Service Advisory Committee of the University convened for three lengthy sessions. (The Advisory Committee is comprised of students, faculty members, and Dr. Fitzgerald. Dr. Valder, a Moscow physician, and a representative of ASUI Senate also participated.) The Advisory Committee was asked to carefully review the whole matter of which services are valued by Idaho students, whether service reductions seem in order, and possible funding remedies. The Advisory Committee has offered these major conclusions:
    1. The present range of services provided by the Student Health Service should not be diminished. Expansion of the services, however (in the manner advocated by the ACHA review of last spring), does not seem feasible at this time. Adequate funding of present programs should be provided.
    2. Rather than funding via a completely pre-paid program, as suggested in the ACHA review, increased fees of all students plus new revenue generated from direct user charges should be combined to balance the budget.
    3. The voluntary health insurance program designed to augment on-campus health services should be continued as opposed to a compulsory insurance approach.
    Recommendations: Effective second semester 1972-73, the student health fee should be raised from $12.50 per semester to $17.50 per semester. Also effective second semester 1972-73, the Student Health Service should be permitted to charge a medical consultation fee to students receiving physician care $1.00 per visit has been suggested) and to revise laboratory, x-ray and medication charges to approximate prevailing charges in the community at large (roughly doubling current charges). Further, the 1972-73 operating budget for the Student Health Service, revised as per these recommendations, should be adopted.
    M/S Swartley/Munson: Approved to amend the above action so that the Student Health Center program be reevaluated before the beginning of the next school year.

    Degrees- Master of Engineering

    Currently the M.S. degree with thesis is authorized in all departments of the College of Engineering (Agricultural Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering). The engineering faculty wishes to permit certain students to substitute appropriate course work for the master’s thesis; and to protect the research character of the degree of Master of Science, the faculty wishes to designate the non-thesis option as Master of Engineering. It is only the introduction of the new degree title which defines this as a new program. It will involve only courses now being offered. It will require no new faculty, staff, equipment, or other expense. (General curriculum report #24.)

    It was moved by Mr. McCollum, seconded by Dr. Munson, and carried that the degree of Master of Engineering be approved in the fields of agricultural engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering, effective immediately.

    Sales It was moved by Mr. McCollum, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the Bursar be authorized to sell to the highest qualified bidders the progeny of 30 snap bean crosses developed at the Twin Falls Branch Station Bean Research Laboratory.

    This will release to the public by means of sale, the specified patented strains of beans developed through research at this station. The amount of income which may be received from this sale is impossible to estimate, since a large part of the possible yield will be derived from the royalty of 3 cents per pound on all seed produced. Should the strains be especially successful, the royalty income could be significant; if not, the income will be negligible.

    Income derived from this sale will be placed in a Restricted Current account to be used for the support of further research of this type, not necessarily limited to beans.

    Advertisements for the sale of these patented strains of beans have been placed in appropriate publications and are to be opened, at which time bids could be accepted or rejected, on 5 February 1973.

    Demolition of Houses for Parking Area Re: Regents’ Minutes for August 5-6, 1965, page 42.

    The above reference explained University plans and secured Regents’ approval for property acquisition and completion of a parking lot immediately east of the Student Union Building in three phases. Phase A and Phase B have been completed, and in 1965 it was estimated that Phase C would be completed about the summer of 1975. To do this work involves eliminating five old houses owned by the University, one of which was damaged during the weekend 9-10 December 1972. At that time the heating boiler in the house, 706 Deakin Avenue, quit working. This resulted in a freeze-up of the water pipes, boiler, heating pipes, radiator, plumbing fixtures and traps. The estimated cost to repair these items is $5,800. The fact that the boiler was essentially worn out has been known for some time, but we decided that, because of the overall condition of the building, replacing the boiler or accomplishing other major repairs of he building would not be economically justified.

    Three of the other four houses mentioned above are in extremely poor condition, and the remaining house is in fair condition. Removing all five of these old houses at the same time would be most economically sensible. Specifically, we should complete plans and specifications within the next few weeks, and early in the spring bid the removal of the houses and the completion of Phase C of the parking project. This will provide parking for about 57 more cars. There is an increasingly critical need for this additional parking. Financial plans were previously mentioned, when Regents’ approval to proceed with this development was secured in 1965. This matter is again being reviewed with the Regents because of the length of time since this matter was cleared with the Board. Approval to proceed with this project is requested.

    The University also owns another old house near the area described above, 412 College Avenue, which is in an extremely poor state of repair. Because of the age and overall condition of the house, expenditures to repair it are not justified. Accordingly, arrangements will be made to have this house removed and grass planted on that site, when the aforementioned work is accomplished.

    It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the Bursar be permitted to solicit bids for (a) the removal of six houses at the following locations which are owned by the University: 706 Deakin Avenue, 420 Narrow Street, 416 Narrow Street, 410 Narrow Street, 406-404 Narrow Street, and 412 College Avenue, and (b) the extension of University parking facilities as previously described, with the understandings that (a) the work will be completed in the summer of 1973, (b) the cost of removing these buildings, completing the Student Union parking development, and accomplishing related work will total less than $50,000, and (c) this cost will be covered by nonappropriated funds that have been expressly reserved in the Student Union Bond redemption fund.

    2/1-2/73 70-71

Mr. George, a pioneer mining man and resident of Kellogg, Idaho, died last month.

    It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mr. McCollum, and carried that the Bursar be permitted (a) to establish a fund to be known as the John B. George Memorial Trust Fund with money received for this fund, (b) to invest the fund as part of the University’s Consolidated Investment Trust Fund, and (c) to utilize the earnings from this fund in accordance with a trust agreement, the specific details of which the Bursar is to work out to comply with the desires of the creators of the Trust.

    Approval to Settle Contract Re: Regents’ Minutes for October 1971, page 82.

    The above reference presents Regents; authority to settle certain claims involving the architect and contractors for the University Swimming Center in accordance with recommendations of the University Attorney. The University Attorney felt that we would be able to collect $12,719.55 from the architect and settle a claim of $3,041.10 by the mechanical contractor, Babbitt Electric and Refrigeration Company for $200.00, and a settlement on this basis was approved by the Regents. We did collect from the architect, but Mr. Babbitt sued the Regents for the $3,041.10. The issue involved the amount that should be authorized the contractor for profit and overhead. The suit was scheduled to go to trial on February 1, 1973.

    In accordance with recommendations of legal counsel representing the University, this matter has been settled out of court by a compromise settlement under which the University paid the contractor the sum of $1,548.30, to include filing fees and service costs. A final decision on whether to settle or go to trial had to be made January 29, 1973. Since the University’s attorneys felt that it would be in the University’s best interests to settle, in this case, the Bursar authorized the settlement. The total amount of Mr. Babbitt’s contract on the Swimming Center amounted to $336, 443.93.

    It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. McCollum, and carried that the action of the University Bursar in authorizing a payment in the amount of $1,548.30 to Mr. Loyale Babbitt, rather than a payment of $200.00 as previously approved by the Regents, be ratified.

    Addition of Student Members on the Faculty Council At the meeting of the Faculty Senate of the University of Idaho held 26 January 1973, the following action was adopted.

    That Article V of the Constitution of the University Faculty be amended to provide for the election of three undergraduate students and one graduate student to serve as voting members on the Faculty Council, and that the Faculty Council be empowered to determine the details to implement the foregoing; further, that instead of electing the student members who will serve for the balance of the 1972-73 membership year, they be appointed by the President of the University after consultation with the duly constitutes student government organizations on the campus.

    The addition of students as voting members will improve communications and broaden the spectrum of opinions and viewpoints represented on the Faculty Council (administrators are already represented as presidential appointees). It is requested that the Board ratify the amendment as soon as possible so that the student members may be seated and begin their service on the council at an early date.

    It was moved by Mr. Alford, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the above recommendation be approved, effective immediately.

    2/1-2/73 78
    Policy Governing Vacation Leaves for Twelve-month Employees Re: Regents’ minutes for October 1972, page 9.

    The above reference announced the following policy:

    “Vacation leave for all faculty and other exempt employees who are employed on a fiscal year basis shall be two days per month with a maximum accumulation of thirty days. Further, that any employees at the University of Idaho who have accumulated in excess of thirty days of vacation leave by October 31, 1972, shall be allowed to take such excess leave prior to June 30, 1974.”

    It is requested that this policy be changed as follows:

    “Vacation leave for all faculty and other exempt employees who are employed on a fiscal year basis shall be two days per month with a maximum accumulation of thirty days. To permit phasing into this new leave policy in an orderly way, and to minimize disruption of work schedules and leave plans, University employees shall be permitted to accrue leave to a total of 44 working days, until June 30, 1973, and to take excess leave which they have accrued until June 30, 1974. Effective July 1, 1974, the maximum accumulation of vacation leave shall be thirty days.”

    The reason for this requested change is to permit a less abrupt transition into the new thirty-day limitation on accrued leave. As mentioned during the Regents’ meeting in December 1972, the policy as presently stated will cause unnecessary inconvenience in some cases and pressure employees who now have thirty or more days leave accrued to take leave as it accrues, in a way which is inconsistent with their plans and duties.

    It was moved by Mr. Engelking, seconded by Mr. Thatcher, and carried that the revision of leave policy requested above be approved.

    2/1-2/73 79

    Recommendation for Appointment It was moved by Mr. Engelking, seconded by Mr. McCollum and carried that the recommendation for appointment of Raymond Jarvis Miller as Director of Experiment Station and Associate Dean, College of Agriculture, University of Idaho, at an annual salary of $28,500, be approved. 2/1-2/73 80
    Christmas Bonuses for ASUI Secretaries The ASUI Senate, in December, decided to reward both ASUI secretaries for their fine performance and hard work they have done on our behalf since the first of July. Therefore, the Senate and myself (UI President) thought it appropriate to give both secretaries $100 bonuses, the monies of which would be appropriated from an excess amount of money accrued in one area of the budget. We have since learned that present university policies prohibit the granting of such bonuses since it constitutes, in the University’s eyes, a pay raise. I find this to be one of the most distressing and upsetting matters during my term of office. In this particular instance, we have two secretaries who have worked ten and twelve hour days plus weekends throughout the year for a wage that is at or slightly below present poverty levels established by the federal government. I respectfully ask in this particular instance that the Regents waive whatever policy infringes upon the payment of these monies.

    It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mr. Alford and approved that for this year only the $00 bonuses be allowed for the ASUI secretaries, and that next year the ASUI establish its budget for payment of overtime, if this occurs.

    Revision of General Academic Regulation “0-2” Subsequent to the Board’s approval of the Statement of Student Rights for the University of Idaho, it was recognized that the general academic regulation headed “Academic Performance” would need to be brought into conformity with the basic protections guaranteed by the Statement, particularly to distinguish between “evaluation” and “penalty,” and to provide for appeals and hearings. The following revised regulation “0-2” was approved by the University Faculty at the meeting of February 27, 1973 and conforms to the principles of the Statement of Student Rights.

    2. Academic Performance. Instructors and students are responsible for maintaining academic standards and integrity in their classes. An instructor may reduce a student’s grade for dishonesty in a course, but the effect shall not be greater than the proportionate value of the work involved to the total requirements. If the student deems the reduction of the grade unfair, he or she may appeal through the Academic Hearing Board. Disciplinary penalties for academic dishonesty must be judicially imposed.

    It was moved by Mr. McCollum, seconded by Dr. Swartley, and carried that the above revision of general academic regulation “0-2” be approved.

    4/6/73 78-79
    Revision of General Academic Regulation “B-11-a” The pass-fail option was instituted at the University of Idaho with the 1969 catalog. Moving cautiously, the University Faculty set a maximum of twelve credits under this option and limited it to juniors and seniors. After reviewing our experience and the experience of other institutions, the faculty has now approved (7 March 1973) a slight expansion. Under the new regulations, freshman and sophomores will also be able to take one course each semester under the option, and the total allowable number of credits in courses of this type applicable toward a baccalaureate degree has been increased from twelve to eighteen.

    Therefore, approval is requested for the following revised regulations “B-11-a” as printed in the catalog supplement of the 1972-73 Time Schedule:

    a. UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS. With the approval of their advisers, undergraduate students who have a cumulative grade-point average of 2.00 or higher are permitted to enroll in one course per semester under this “pass-fail option.” (The grade-point requirements are not applicable to students who are taking university-level courses for the first time.) This procedure is separate from taking courses which are regularly graded on the basis of P or F. Undergraduates are not permitted to take the following courses under the pass-fail option: Eng 101 and 201, courses in the student’s major subject field, and courses excluded from this option by the academic department in which the student is majoring. (In the case of interdepartmental curricula, e.g., American studies, agribusiness, etc., “academic department” means the departments, colleges, and/or other units involved.) Departments usually exclude courses which are closely related to the major field. A maximum of eighteen credits earned under this regulation may be counted toward a baccalaureate degree.

    It was moved by Mr. Alford, seconded by Mr. McCollum, and carried that the above revision of regulation “B-11-a” be approved.

    4/6/73 79-80
    General Catalog for 1973-74 At the request of the Faculty Council, the University of Idaho’s general catalog has been entirely rewritten to “neuterize” it, i.e., to get away from the constant repetition of “he,” “him,” and “his.” In many instances it was necessary to restructure paragraphs and sections.

    To assure the continuing force of re-edited provisions, and to provide a new starting point when researching questions relating to Regents’ approval of specific provisions, it is requested that the 1973-74 general catalog be approved. All substantive changes (e.g., new courses, curricula, degrees) have been presented individually and have received Board approval. The catalog is on the press as this agenda is being prepared. Copies were distributed at the meeting in Moscow.

    It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the 1973-74 University of Idaho General Catalog be approved.

    4/6/73 80
    Budget Transfers It was moved by Mr. McCollum, seconded by Dr. Munson, and carried that the following Budget Transfers be approved:

    4/6/73 81-82
    Budget for 1973 PUEC It was moved by Mrs. Hay, seconded by Mr. McCollum, and carried that the budget for the 1973 PUEC be approved and that payments to staff members in addition to certified salaries, payments to visiting faculty, honoraria, and travel allowances be authorized as listed in Exhibit III.

    Note: That exhibit requests that tax withholdings not be made in the case of visiting faculty. Federal and State law requires such withholdings in the case of employees but excludes payments to “independent contractors.” Such a classification is generally permitted in the case of physicians, lawyers, dentists, contractors, sub-contractors and others pursuing an independent trade, business, or profession as such. In any event, at this time the University will continue to withhold federal and state tax and FICA tax from the salary of visiting faculty members pending the receipt of a written opinion or other authoritative ruling that such withholding is not necessary.

    4/6/73 82
    Sale of Cattle Report is made that bids were received on 14 February for the sale of 48 steers by the Caldwell Branch Station. High bidder for the steers was Armour & Company, P.O. Box 470, Nampa, Idaho 83651, for $22,002.22. 4/6/73 82

    The Commemorative Art Scholarship Fund Miss Mary Kirkwood, Professor Art, Emerita, has requested that the scholarship she originally established as the “Mary Kirkwood Scholarship” and later at her request renamed the “Margarete Ann Walters Memorial Scholarship” (See Regents’ action April 1, 1971) be renamed “The Commemorative Art Scholarship Fund.” Miss Kirkwood has the warm approval of Miss Walters’ family and the endorsement of the art faculty. It is the feeling of the above that the fund will be subject to more growth through contributions with the proposed new name. At this time Miss Kirkwood is making a cash contribution of $210 to be currently awarded from this fund and an additional contribution to the principal of the fund of 17 shares of common stock of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company.

    It was moved by Mr. Engelking, seconded by Mr. Alford, and carried that the name change requested above be approved.

    4/6/73 83
    Lucile Bondurant Scholarship A letter was received from Lucille Bondurant requesting that minor changes, as explained below, be made in her scholarship trust agreement previously approved by the Board of Regents.

    1. The requirement that recipients be members of the National Broadcasting Honorary Fraternity (alpha Epsilon Rho) is to be deleted because of the inactivity of this fraternity on the University campus.
    2. Additional awards are to be made possible because of further contributions Lucile Bondurant has made to the fund and capital gains on the existing principal.
    3. Scholarship recipients will continue to be restricted to majors in Radio-T.V., with first consideration being given to their financial need and second consideration to scholarship achievement.

    It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mr. McCollum, and carried that the changes explained above be approved.

    4/6/73 83-84

    University Scholarship Endowment In 1961, the Regents established a County Honor Awards program payable from earnings of the University Scholarship Endowment within the Consolidated Investment Trust. At that time, endowment earnings enabled the granting of 44 awards of $100 each, one award to be made to a student from each county within the state. Although it was intended that the amount of the annual award per student be determined by the availability of funds from endowment earnings, no policy statement was made to that effect. The University has in fact raised the amount of these annual awards as income has increased and our external auditors have recommended that we obtain formal Regents’ approval for this procedure. To illustrate, in 1961 available income was $4,651.08. Through distributed capital gains since 1961, annual incomes in fees in 1961 were $77.00 per semester and now are $178.00 per semester. For the aforementioned reasons, it is recommended that the University Office of Student Financial Aids and the Office of Financial Affairs be given the authority to adjust the amount of the County Honor Awards to a figure compatible with the income realized from the University Scholarship Endowment fund. It is proposed that about 44 scholarship awards per year continue to be made through this program.

    It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the above proposal be approved.

    A copy of Exhibit IV is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Grace M. Schwartz Scholarship Fund In 1965 the Regents established this scholarship program as being available to students from high schools in Bonner County (Sandpoint, Priest River, and Clark Fork) who have substantial need. The value of the scholarship awards to be made was set at $300. Since the date of establishment of the program, costs for attending the University of Idaho have increased considerably, as has the amount of the earnings in this fund. Endowment earnings available in 1967 amounted to $1,250. Through capital growth, earnings available in this fund last fiscal year amounted to $3,136.

    Accordingly, it is appropriate to adjust the amount of the scholarship awards under this program. Approval to make awards between $300 and $500 in each case, with the amount of the award to be determined by the level of need, as established by the Student Financial Aids Office, is requested. In all cases, need will still be the primary criterion for selecting recipients for these scholarship awards.

    It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the above proposal be approved.

    4/6/73 85-86
    Application for Research Grants and Awards It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the Applications for Research Grants and Awards listed in Exhibit V be approved. 4/6/73 86

    Rental Rates for Phase II- Housing It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. McCollum, and carried that the following rates be approved for the new housing units, effective the summer of 1973:

    $100 per month for one-bedroom units
    $120 per month for two-bedroom units
    $140 per month for three-bedroom units

    4/6/73 86-87
    Late Diploma Fee Upon recommendation of the Registrar and with the concurrence of the Controller’s Office, it is recommended that the late diploma fee of $5 be discontinued immediately. This fee has become essentially a “nuisance” fee and results in ill-feeling on the part of the student which the income produced does not justify.

    It was moved by Dr. Swartley, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the late diploma fee be discontinued effective immediately.

    4/6/73 87
    Payments in Addition to Certified Salary It was moved by Mr. Alford, seconded by Mr. Thatcher, and carried that the following payments in addition to certified salary be approved:

    4/6/73 88
    Construction of New Roads and Sidewalks The new Law Building and Performing Arts Center are both scheduled to be occupied by this coming fall. Completion of these buildings requires the extension of certain roads and walkways. At this time we are completing specifications to bid the extension of a 20-foot wide roadway and 6-foot walkway, both of macadam, west from Rayburn Avenue, immediately south of the new Law Building. The walkway will handle pedestrian traffic and the roadway will handle one-way vehicular traffic, linking up with a 44-foot wide macadam road with concrete sidewalks extending from Sixth Street to the south. This latter road and walkways will pass to the east of the new Performing Arts building. There will be a temporary graveled turnaround area at the end of this road and a temporary graveled extension of this road onto the graveled parking area west of the University stadium. This temporary extension will be 24 feet wide. A 6-foot macadam walkway will parallel he road so that people will be able to park west of the stadium and walk to the campus, or to the Performing Arts Center or Law Building. Long-range plans call for the eventual improvement and extension of this graveled road. It will become “Stadium Road” and intersect Perimeter Drive between the new stadium and new track facility. It may be several years before this latter construction is undertaken, since funds for that construction are not yet in sight. However, budgetary provisions have been made to do the aforementioned work as a plant outlay project, funded by the operating budgets for the current and next fiscal year.

    It was moved by Mr. McCollum, seconded by Mr. Thatcher, and carried that the Bursar be permitted to request bids for the aforementioned work, accept the lowest responsive bids, and sign contracts for the completion of this work this coming summer, with the understandings that the work is estimated to cost about $75,000 and that the cost will be covered as a standard, budgeted, plant outlay project.

    4/6/73 88-89
    Street Repairs and Development Two budgeted plant outlay projects involve (a) minor repairs of campus streets, and (b) the construction of part of a road and walkway from Rayburn Street to about the rear of the new College of Law Building. (Approval to extend this road and walkway is requested as agenda item 5.11 above.) Bids for projects “a” and “b” mentioned above were received last September; however, the bids were higher than our estimates of what the cost of this work should be. We felt that we might be able to get lower bids if we asked for them this spring, and so the previous bids were rejected. New bids for this work were obtained and opened on April 5, 1973. The new bids are $1,588 below the bids received last fall, are within the budget, and we now request authority to accept these bids.

    It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Alford, and carried that the lowest bids for the aforementioned work be accepted, and that the Bursar be permitted to sign a contract with the bidder, Northwest Paving of Pullman, Washington, for about $13,123 for the completion of this work

    4/6/73 89
    Approval of Projects to Correct Safety Deficiencies A State inspector has pointed out the need to construct an emergency exit from the second floor of the Food Science Building and two fire exits in Art and Architecture buildings. It is estimated that this work can be accomplished for about $17,500. Necessary funds are available within the budget for plant outlay projects.

    It was moved by Mrs. Hay, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the Bursar be permitted to request bids for the construction of the three emergency exits cited above, accept the lowest responsive bids and sign contracts for the completion of this work.

    4/6/73 89
    Acceptance of Facilities It was moved by Mr. McCollum, seconded by Mr. Thatcher, and carried that acceptance of the following projects as completed be ratified.

    Project: New Steam and Condensate Lines
    Contractor: Powell Plumbing and Heating, 612 S. Main Street, Moscow, Idaho 83843
    Amount of Contract: $28,680

    Statement of Mission, functions, and Objectives of the University of Idaho We have had a long-standing need for an official statement of the mission, functions, and objectives of the University of Idaho. Two current operations require adoption as soon as possible.

    1. Requirement of a statement by the Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools. We are now undergoing the institutional self-study which the association requires for their accreditation visit in 1974.

    2. The general curriculum review now being conducted by the Planning Committee of the Board of Regents.

    The Statement of Mission, Functions, and Objectives presented as Exhibit VIII is the culmination of a five-year effort begun in 1967. It has included inputs from Faculty Council, Administrative Council, the ASUI, the Cooperative Extension Service, Alumni, members for which the University prepares practitioners.

    It was moved by Dr. Swartley, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the “Statement of Mission, Functions, and Objectives of the University of Idaho,” as presented in Exhibit VIII be referred to the Planning Committee for review.

    A copy of Exhibit VIII is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    4/6/73 90-91
    Payment Source for Position of Business Manager/Investment Officer The above-mentioned position is now paid for from the general operating budget. In accordance with efforts being made to reduce the subsidy of auxiliary activities by this budget, this position should now be paid for from other funds. The scope of the University’s investment activities includes the short-term investment of cash and investments in securities and real estate. More and more time is required to properly manage such investments and to complete related administration, such as trust administration and work toward the creation of the proposed Palouse Empire Mall.

    It would now be advisable to have one full-time Investment Officer. The scope of the University’s investment programs are such that the salary for this position can now appropriately be covered from charges to investment earnings. Therefore, such a change in the funding of the Business Manager/Investment Officer position is proposed. As soon as possible, the incumbent in the position, Mr. H. Eugene Slade, will be utilized full-time in areas relating to investment management. This change in funding will free funds now in the general operating budget to permit the hiring of an internal auditor.

    External auditors have urged that the University keep the position of internal auditor filled by a qualified auditor, and such an individual is sorely needed. However, it was necessary to designate the person who was the internal auditor as the Assistant Business Manager, to free the Business Manager for work as explained above. Thus, no one is now assigned as internal auditor, although the function is being performed in a makeshift way. Efforts are being made to find a suitable person to be internal auditor, and the position will be filled as soon as possible, if the financing to make this possible is approved as recommended in this action.

    It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that effective July 1, 1973, financing for the position of Investment Officer be covered by charges to the University’s investment programs, the exact charge to each such program, which may need to be changed from time to time, being established by the Bursar, in a manner which is equitable and proper.

    Appointment and Responsibilities of College Deans For some time it has been evident that the current statement in the University of Idaho’s Handbook of Policy and Procedure (pp. 89-90) relating to the appointment and responsibilities of college deans needs to be more explicit. A revision of that statement was undertaken about a year ago. The revision recommended with this agenda (see enclosed Exhibit IX) was developed with the participation of the Academic Vice President, the college deans, and the Faculty Council. It was approved by the University Faculty at the meeting of 7 March 1973.

    It was moved by Mrs. Hay, seconded by Mr. Alford, and carried that the revised statement relating to the appointment and responsibilities of college deans (see enclosed Exhibit IX) be approved.

    A copy of Exhibit IX is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    4/6/73 92
    Revised Research Policies for the University of Idaho To supplement the Board’s basic policies covering research and grants (Section 805 of the Board’s Policy Manual) approval is recommended for the revised research policies for the University of Idaho contained in Exhibit X. This revision was developed by the Research Council and the Faculty Council, and was approved without dissent at the meeting of the University Faculty held on January 26, 1973. These policies replace statements related to research in the University of Idaho’s Handbook of Policy and Procedure (1972 revision) pp. 38-39, 50-51, and 135.

    The revised statement will bring the University into conformity with federal regulations relating to investigations involving human subjects, clarifies the role of the Coordinator of Research up-dates the definitions of grant, contract, and cooperative-agreement research, and attempts to make explicit the research responsibilities of faculty members as well as administrators at all levels.

    Item E-6 of the revision involves a change in emphasis with respect to “classified” research projects. It was the Faculty Council’s feeling that the results of research undertaken and performed by a public institution should be available to the public, unless there are compelling reasons to the contrary. Item E-6 provides that the University normally avoids undertaking research projects the release of whose program content or results is to be in any way restricted. However, the Research Council is not prohibited from approving a classified project if there is a compelling reason to conduct the research.

    It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the proposed revision of the University of Idaho’s research policies as recommended above, and as shown in Exhibit X, be approved. A copy of Exhibit X is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    4/6/73 93
    Change of Unit Name from “Reserve Officers’ Training Corp” to “Officer Education Program” As a result of growing concern and interest on the part of the U.S. Department of Defense, as well as several of the national associations concerned with higher education, to further the integration of the faculties of the various ROTC units with the academic life of the institutions to which they are attached, approval is requested for a change of unit name from “Reserve Officers’ Training Corps” to “Officer Education Program.”

    This above change was recommended by the University of Idaho’s ROTC Affairs Committee, February 12, 1973, and has the support of the three ROTC departments. The recommended change of name is consistent with similar changes being made in colleges and universities throughout the United States.

    It was moved by Mr. McCollum, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the above recommendation be approved.

    4/6/73 93-94
    Student Code of Conduct At the meeting of November 12, 1970, the Board directed that all student disciplinary regulations be codified and published in a “Student Code of Conduct.” Accordingly, the codification has been completed and was approved by a substantial majority at the meeting of the University Faculty held on February 27, 1973. Faculty approval was required under the delegation of authority for the establishment of rules and regulations governing the conduct of students which is contained in Chapter VIII of the Bylaws of the Regents of the University of Idaho (Constitution of the Faculty), Article IV, Section 5.

    Section III, Paragraph 5, of the Board-approved “Statement of Student Rights” requires that before disciplinary regulations adopted by the Faculty can take effect they must be published. Authorization to publish the new Code is therefore requested.

    All segments of the University participated over a two-year period in the development of the Code and it represents a general consensus of a vast majority of the various constituencies of the University of Idaho. It is recognized that this code will need to be used and tested for a time before it can be known for certain that all problems have been solved; however, the Faculty recognized the urgency of completing the document so that problems which have resulted from not having a unified and orderly statement of disciplinary regulations can be overcome. As experience demonstrates the need for amendments, they will be made.

    It is the sincere hope of the Faculty Council that if it is determined that additional changes are needed, the Board will return the Code for further work prior to taking final Board action.

    It was moved by Mr. McCollum and seconded by Mr. Alford that the “Student Code of Conduct” (Exhibit XI) be accepted with the exception of that portion, “Article VIII Drugs and Alcohol,” and that this portion be referred to the Planning Committee. A copy of Exhibit XI is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Report of Change of Subject Signature with B.S. Degree in Recreation Re: Board Minutes of 7-8 December 1972, pp. 38-39.

    In accordance with the Board’s permission for University of Idaho colleges to update the subject signatures with currently-authorized curricula leading to the B.S. degree, report is made of the fact that the College of Education has substituted the word “Recreation” for “Education” with the B.S. degree to be earned by students completing the currently-authorized non-teaching curriculum in recreation in that college. Thus, after the 1973 commencement, students who complete the recreation curriculum in the College of Education will become candidates for the degree of Bachelor Science in Recreation, rather that the B.S. Ed.

    University of Idaho Foundation It was moved by Dr. Munson and seconded by Mr. Alford that the State Board of Education and Board of Regents of the University of Idaho adopt the following resolution:

    Resolved, that the University of Idaho Foundation is designated as the agent of this Board for the receipt, administration and management of funds held or received in trust for the benefit of the University of Idaho; provide, however, that this Board shall retain exclusive power over the manner, methods and procedures through which the funds are invested; and

    Further resolved, that the Bursar acting on behalf of this Board shall offer such agency to the University of Idaho Foundation and should the Board of Directors of that Foundation resolve to accept the responsibility thereof then the Bursar is authorized to work with the designated officer of the Foundation and to do all acts necessary and convenient in causing said funds to be transferred to said Foundation and to do such further acts as may be necessary to effectuate the intent of these resolutions; and

    Further resolved, that until otherwise directed by this Board, the Bursar shall deal with the investment of the trust funds in the manner, and with the methods and procedures, presently in effect.

    4/6/73 96

    Approval of Operating Budgets for 1973-74 Proposed, summary operating budgets for General Education, Agricultural Research, Cooperative Extension and Short Term Applied Research for next fiscal year were mailed to the Office of Higher Education on March 30, 1973. Provisions have been made for the financing needed to implement each of these budgets, with the exception of the budget for General Education. To provide sufficient financing for that budget, Regents’ approval is needed: (a) to increase student fees $12 per semester, (b) to increase non-resident tuition $50 per semester, and (c) to allocate to the University $176,000 of the Regents’ $400,000 contingency fund.

    Dr. Munson and Mr. Alford voted negatively. It was moved by Mr. McCollum, seconded by Dr. Munson, and carried that the above-mentioned charges and allocation from the Regents’ contingency fund, and summary operating budgets are approved, with the understanding that the University Administration will compute and submit for Regents’ approval, specific salary proposals for individual University employees and detailed operating budgets.

    Purchase Payment- Model 360/40 Computer The University has a balance of $70,631.76 to pay on the purchase contract for the IBM Model 360/40 Computer. It is proposed that we use an anticipated increase in Land-Grant Endowment income projected for the current fiscal year to make a payment of $38,764.56 on the purchase contract. The lump sum payment will decrease our obligation next fiscal year by $22,830.96, and in addition, we will save about $700 in interest costs when the final payment is made July 1974.

    The decrease in payment requirements during the next fiscal year ($22,830.96) will provide us a means of solving a problem of a projected deficit in the income account – Restricted Current, Computer Center- during 1973-74 fiscal year. With this action it will not be necessary to reduce our computer service operation next year to eliminate the deficit situation. Demands upon computer services have increased tremendously and consequently it would be extremely difficult to reduce the current services provided.

    It was moved by Mr. Engelking, seconded by Mr. McCollum, and carried that a payment in the amount of $38,764.56 be made on the purchase contract for the Model 360/40 Computer prior to 30 June 1973 and that the balance due be paid one-half during 1973-74 and the remainder in July 1974.

    Establishment of President’s Scholarship Fund In 1967 a “memorial” scholarship fund was created. Money for this fund came from miscellaneous sources, such as donations made in memory of deceased staff members in lieu of flowers. Additions to the fund have been made from time to time, and the fund now contains about $3,300. Criteria for awarding scholarships from earnings of this fund have not been formally established, and the Director of Student Financial Aids has requested the approval of such criteria. He has pointed out that, in view of the sources of funds involved, the criteria should be broad and flexible. His proposals are as follows:

    1. That the scholarships awarded from this fund be designated as President’s Scholarships.

    2. That the number of awards and amounts of these awards be determined each year by the Offices of Financial Affairs and Student Financial Aids, based upon earnings available for distribution, and the numbers and needs of qualified recipients. Initially, it is anticipated that each annual award will be about $250.

    3. That these scholarships be awarded to outstanding and deserving students enrolled in or enrolling in the University of Idaho.

    4. That the recipients of these awards be selected by the University’s Scholarship Committee, in coordination with the President’s Office.

    It was moved by Mr. McCollum, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the criteria for scholarship awards as described above be approved.

    4/6/73 101-102
    Application for Research Grants and Awards It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Alford, and carried that the following applications for research grants and awards be approved.

    1. From the National Science Foundation, a grant of $93,964 by the College of Engineering for a project entitled “Radiation Enhanced Electrocatalysis” during the period July 1973 through June 1975.

    2. From the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, a grant of $17,558 by the Department of Biological Sciences for a project entitled “Hormonal Control of Delayed Implantation” during the period 1 June 1973 through 31 May 1974.

    Approval of Board Rates for 1973-74 It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the board rates shown below be approved for 1973-74. These rates are about $30 per semester higher than the rates for the current year. The increases are required because of increased food and labor costs.

    Plan A – 400 points per semester @ .65 $260
    Plan B – 500 points per semester @ .60 $300
    Plan C – 600 points per semester @ .55 $330

    Medical Insurance Coverage for University Employees Re: Regents’ Minutes for May 1972, pages 64 and 65

    Medical insurance for full-time University employees has been purchased annually from the New England Mutual Life Insurance Company since 1956. Employees generally have been pleased with the service provided and other companies have not been invited to submit bids for this insurance. The University pays 75 percent of the cost of this coverage for participating employees. They pay 25 percent of the cost and may, by paying the full cost of such coverage.

    The above reference indicated that we planned to determine whether or not the University could affect a cost saving without incurring a loss in the quality of service being received by changing to another insurance company. However, we have not yet been able to get firm experience data for the last calendar year. This information is of primary importance before seeking bids for continued insurance coverage. Accordingly, we now wish to extend the current policy, which was scheduled to expire on 30 April, until 30 June 1973. This extension will enable us to furnish the necessary information to bidders and still allow adequate time for the bidding process and the analysis of bids received. In addition, it will place the renewal date at the start of the fiscal year, which is desirable for budgeting purposes.

    It was moved by Mr. Alford, seconded by Mr. McCollum, and carried that the Bursar be authorized to extend current insurance coverage as explained above and then to request quotations from companies wishing to submit such quotations, with the understanding that Regents’ approval will be secured prior to signing a contract for insurance coverage past June 30, 1973.

    4/6/73 103-104

    Demolition and Removal of Two Buildings The University’s requests for approval of the new Agricultural Sciences Building which is now being completed specified that the Entomology Research Laboratory and the Veterinary Sciences Building would be removed when the new building was occupied. The Entomology Research Laboratory is a frame building which was constructed about 1938. It is in extremely poor condition and should be removed as soon as possible. Plans for the removal of this building and the extension of adjacent parking over the site of the present building have now been completed. The additional area will provide about 65 additional parking spaces. The Veterinary Sciences Building is another frame structure. It was received by the University as war surplus immediately after World War II. Plans are being completed to have the building removed and an adjacent parking area expanded over that site. This will provide about 9 additional parking spaces. The cost of the aforementioned work, funds for which are available within the budget for plant outlay projects, has been estimated at about $30,000.

    It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. McCollum, and carried that the Bursar be authorized to advertise for bids, accept the lowest responsive bids, and sign contracts for the completion of the above-described work as soon as possible after occupation of the Agricultural Sciences Building.

    4/6/73 104-105
    Acceptance of Facilities It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the following contract be accepted as completed:

    Project: Alterations to Secure Area, Admin. Office Bldg.
    Contractor: Commercial Builders, Inc., 301 College Avenue, Moscow, Idaho
    Amount of Contract: $27,757.00
    Date of Completion: 23 March 1973

    Accrual of Sick Leave Prior to July 1, 1967 In July, 1967, the Regents approved the University Administration’s recommendation that formal record-keeping pertaining to sick leave commence as of July 1, 1967, with University employees being credited with sick leave on that date in accordance with a specific schedule, based upon length of service. Prior to that time, a rather complicated “extended sick leave” policy was in effect.

    In October, 1972, the Regents approved the following policy:

    “Existing faculty and professional employees shall retain any existing recorded sick leave as of October 31, 1972; however, if no record of sick leave has been kept for the faculty and professional staff, nine days of sick leave will be credited for each full year of service at Idaho institutions of higher education to a maximum of forty-five days.”

    Some employees were credited with more sick leave under the policy approved in 1967 than they would have been under the policy approved in 1972. For example, under the 1967 policy an employee with 20 years service was credited with 72 working days of sick leave on July 1, 1967. However, the policy approved in 1972 provided for a more generous crediting of accrued sick leave for many employees than did the earlier policy. For example, a person who had been employed by the University for nearly six years in 1967 was credited with 22 working days of sick leave under the old policy, while he would have been credited with 45 days sick leave under the policy announced in 1972.

    To avoid unfair treatment of any employee, it is recommended that persons who have been employed full-time by the University since before July 1, 1967, be permitted to elect to have their accrued sick leave as of that date computed by either the method approved in 1967 or 1972, with sick leave since that date accruing at the standard rate. This will not cause the University to incur any significant cost. There has never been a difference in the rate of accrual of sick leave for full-time employees based upon whether they were considered faculty, professional staff or classified personnel, and no differentiation in sick leave policy for such categories for employees is proposed.

    It was moved by Mr. Alford, seconded by Dr. Munson, and carried that the above recommendation be approved.

    4/6/73 105-106
    Proposed Establishment of Rank of Senior Instructor At the meeting of March 28,1973, the University Faculty recommended that the academic rank of senior instructor be established, and that all affected policies and regulations be amended to reflect the addition of this rank; further, that the following specific provisions shall be applicable to the rank of senior instructor.

    1. Effective teaching is the primary responsibility of individuals holding the rank of senior instructor, and this primary responsibility shall be weighted accordingly in the annual performance evaluation. Senior instructors also have the responsibilities specified for instructors (see p. 87 of the Handbook of Policy and Procedure).

    2. In addition to the qualifications for instructors (see p. 87 of the Handbook of Policy and Procedure) senior instructors must present evidence of outstanding teaching ability.

    3. Except in very rare instances, the rank of senior instructor shall be considered as a terminal rank (no limitation on the number of reappointments; does not lead to promotion to the professorial ranks). Prospective appointees to this rank must be fully informed of its terminal nature.

    4. At the time of initial appointment, the salary of a senior instructor normally will be comparable to that of an instructor. However, since it is assumed that individuals will hold this rank for an extended period of time (presumably receiving cost-of-living and merit increases) the average salary of senior instructors will be higher than the average for instructors, but below the average for assistant professors.

    5. No individual who is a candidate for a doctoral degree in the college of the University in which he or she is teaching may be appointed to the rank of senior instructor, and no individual may be continued in this rank if he or she is advanced to candidacy for a doctoral degree in the college of the University in which he or she is teaching.

    6. No more than fifteen percent of the positions in any department may be held by senior instructors; however, each department may appoint one individual to this rank even though, in some instances, this would exceed the fifteen percent limitation.

    It is understood that whether or not this academic rank eventually becomes tenurable will depend on Board actions with respect to the revision in the state-wide tenure policy. The faculty of the University of Idaho has recommended that the rank of senior instructor be tenurable; however, final action on that separate matter is not requested at this time.

    It was moved by Dr. Swartley, seconded by Dr. Munson, and carried that the rank of senior instructor be established at the University of Idaho as recommended above.

    Equipment for Law Building Construction of the new law building is scheduled to be completed about July 15, 1973, and the state has appropriated $300,000 to equip and furnish this building. On March 27, 1973, the Permanent Building Fund Advisory Council authorized the University to request bids for such furnishings and equipment. After receiving and evaluating bids, the Council must grant approval before orders may be placed. If this approval can be obtained expeditiously, we hope to be able to place orders sometime about the middle or latter part of May. About four months then may be required to manufacture, ship and install purchases, which means that the College of Law will not be able to move until after the beginning of next semester. The need for authority to request bids early in 1973, if the college was to be moved this summer before the beginning of fall semester, and thus avoid academic disruptions, was previously emphasized in various budget submissions.

    The Dean of the College is now planning for the College to move into its new building in early October.

    Use of Funds Derived from Parking Fines Re: Regents’ Minutes for October, 1971, page 72.

    The above reference indicated that “about one-half” of the funds received from traffic fines would be used to cover the cost of traffic control on campus and related administration, to include salaries and accounting costs, purchase of parking decals, and the printing of traffic and parking regulations. Such costs currently total about $13,000 per year. Parking fines collected which are not needed to cover the aforementioned costs have been authorized for use as scholarship grants.

    Through March 15, 1973, parking fines totaling only $8,251 have been collected this fiscal year. Accordingly, it is anticipated that, for the foreseeable future, it will be necessary to use essentially all traffic fines collected toward the costs of traffic control on campus and related administration. Any traffic fines collected which are not needed to cover such costs will continue to be used to pay for scholarships. Also, it is planned, when possible, to employ students to assist in traffic and parking administration.

    4/6/73 108

    Budget and Budget Transfers The University of Idaho has been advised by the Endowment Fund Investment Board that the Land-Grant Endowment Income for 1972-73 will be $48,352 in excess of amounts previously estimated. In order for the University to receive these additional funds, a budget increase and allotment request must be approved by the Board of Regents.

    It was moved by Mr. Alford, and seconded by Mr. Benoit that a budget increase and additional allotment request in the amount of $48,352 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1973 for the University of Idaho be approved.

    5/10-12/73 45
    Travel Allowances House Bill No. 81 of the 42nd Legislature authorized new maximum amounts for travel reimbursement for employees of the State of Idaho and the Board of Examiners has adopted these maximums effective July 1, 1973. To conform with the action of the Board of Examiners, the following motion is submitted for your approval:

    It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mr. Benoit, and approved that the rates of allowance for travel expense for all persons under the governance of the Board of Regents of the University of Idaho, effective July 1, 1973, shall be actual cost of lodging, plus $7.50 per day within the state for meals or $10.00 per day without the state for meals, and the rate of mileage allowance shall be 12c per mile.

    Clarification of Policies Relating to Grade Changes and Waivers of General Academic Requirements During the 1970-71 academic year, a special committee undertook a complete revision of part 3 of the General Catalog. The committee reduced the bulk of the general regulations; however, some things the committee felt were universally understood, thus left out, have proved not to be universally understood. Therefore, approval is requested for the addition of the following statements to part 3 of the General Catalog:

    Grades and Grade Changes

    The assignment of grades and changes in grades, whenever such changes occur, are the sole prerogative of the instructor and they are reported by the instructor directly to the Registrar on forms provided by the Registrar’s Office. With respect to grade changes, an instructor may only change a grade to a new grade that he or she could have assigned initially, i.e., A, B, C, D, F, P, I, IP.

    In response to a petition from a student, the Administrative Council’s Petitions Subcommittee may find that a grade change seems warranted. However, no grade is ever altered by the Subcommittee on its own authority because after a grade has been reported to the Registrar it may not be altered except by a written request stating the reasons for the alteration which shall be signed by the instructor who submitted the original grade. If the instructor cannot be contacted, the chairman of the department in which the course was offered may assume the prerogatives of the instructor in connection with the grade change.

    Waiver of General Academic Requirements

    A student may petition the Administrative Council for a waiver of any general academic requirement officially adopted by the University Faculty. All such requirements are printed in part 3 of the General Catalog. If the student deems the Administrative Council’s action on a petition to be unfair, he or she may appeal to the Academic Hearing Board. The Administrative Council’s authority to waive general academic requirements is normally discharged by its Petitions Subcommittee.

    Moved by Mr. Deaton, seconded by Dr. Munson, and carried that the above statements be approved, effective immediately.

    6/13-15/73 57-58
    Revised Graduate School Regulations For about fourteen months the Graduate Council has been engaged in a thorough study of the regulations of the Graduate School. The results of the deliberations of the Graduate Council and of the Faculty Council are presented for approval in the attached Exhibit IV. Among the substantive changes are:

    1. “Provisional enrollment” in the Graduate School has been eliminated. Students will be enrolled either as “full enrollment” or “unclassified enrollment.”

    2. “In absentia” registration provisions have been discontinued. When appropriate, graduate students may continue to conduct research and directed study off campus; however, a special registration category is no longer needed.

    3. Some graduate courses taken by correspondence study may be counted toward a graduate degree, subject to the approval of the candidate’s committee. At the present time no such credits may be applied toward a graduate degree.

    4. The residence requirement for a master’s degree has been reduced from twenty-two to twelve credits, with the understanding that individual departments may require a higher number of credits when appropriate.

    Many other changes have been made, although most are not substantive. Note that in the Exhibit the current requirement is stated followed by the change.

    Moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the changes in the regulations of the Graduate School, as contained in the enclosed Exhibit IV, be approved, effective immediately. A copy of Exhibit IV is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Sale of Milk With the phasing out of the Food Science Department, it has become necessary to dispose of milk produced by the College of Agriculture. After a canvass of possible buyers by Dr. John Montoure, only one purchaser was found for this milk. Accordingly, the University, upon recommendation of Dr. J. E. McCroskey, Head, Department of Animal Industries, has entered into a marketing agreement with the Inland Empire Dairy Association for the marketing of all milk produced by the University, at the blend price determined by the Federal Milk Order, effective 17 May 1973.

    The reference approved establishment of a restricted current account for the maintenance and improvement of the University Experimental Forest, with funds being deposited into that account from the sale of timber from salvage and harvest cuts. Bids were received on May 22, 1973 for approximately 1,200,000 board feet of timber to be secured from such cuts. Four bids were received and a contract for the sale was signed with the highest bidder, Bennett Lumber Products, Inc., Princeton, Idaho, at a price of $97 per thousand board feet.

    Moved by Mr. Engelking, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that approval of the aforementioned sale be ratified.

    Acceptance of Bequest Re: Regents’ Minutes for May 5, 1973, pp.62

    The University of Idaho is receiving a bequest from the estates of W. L. and Clara Ziegler, as reported in the reference. Under terms of a partial Decree of Distribution, $70,525.10 has been received. The provisions of this bequest are as follows:

    (a) That all of said funds, monies so derived shall be placed in a fund entitled the “ZEIGLER EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION.” The funds comprising such foundation and the income and proceeds therefrom shall be used exclusively and solely for the granting of scholarships to students enrolled in the College of Mines at the University of Idaho, Moscow, Idaho, for the furtherance of their education in mining and metallurgy, subject to the following conditions and qualifications:

    (i) That the students granted scholarships hereunder shall be bona-fide residents and citizens of the State of Idaho.
    (ii) That the students granted scholarships shall have demonstrated academic ability deserving of reward and recognition with reasonable expectation of their ability to complete their education in the schools of mining and metallurgy.
    (iii) That the students shall be needy and deserving as shall be determined by the Regents of the University of Idaho.
    (iv) That the students shall be of good moral character and who, except for the financial assistance to be rendered under this foundation, may be unable to complete their education.

    (b) The Board of Regents shall exclusively determine what person or persons are worthy of such scholarships and may in their discretion as they elect, make outright grants of financial aid or may make loan grants upon the basis of repayment to this foundation as the Regents deem best under each individual circumstance and each individual case.

    (c) The Board of Regents of the University of Idaho shall limit the number of grants of scholarships hereunder to be made to five (5) such grants in any one academic year, PROVIDED, FURTHER, HOWEVER, that no more than fifteen (15) of such grants shall be in force and effect at any one given time.

    (d) Any scholarship granted hereunder to be retained by a student shall be upon the condition that that student continue to exhibit that academic ability and merit moral standard as were required in his initial qualifications to be the recipient of the grant in the first instance.

    (e) I further authorize and empower the Board of Regents to adopt such other rules and standards in the administration of this trust and in the grant of scholarships hereunder as they may deem advisable or necessary, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that said rules and regulations as adopted shall not be in minimization or derogation of those standards here created and shall further be consistent with the intent and purpose of the trust foundation as here created.

    (f) If for any reason the College of mines at the University of Idaho ceases to exist, then in such event the Board of Regents shall use said foundation funds and monies for the granting of scholarships in the College of Engineering at the University of Idaho subject to the same conditions and qualifications as herein set forth.

    Moved by Mrs. Hay, seconded by Mr. Benoit, and carried that the above bequest be accepted under the terms specified, that future amounts received under this estate be accepted under the same terms, and that a trust fund be established to handle the proceeds from this bequest.

    6/13-15/73 62-63
    Optional Student Health and Accident Insurance Re: Regents Minutes for July 6, 1972, pp. 36-37.

    It is recommended that the current contract for Optional Health Insurance for students and dependents be extended for a one-year term at the following rates as quoted by the North Idaho Medical Service Bureau:

    Annual-Present
    Student Only $23.85
    Student and Spouse $58.40
    Student and Children $51.60
    Student, Spouse, and Children $86.15

    Annual-Proposed
    Student Only $26.30
    Student and Spouse $64.40
    Student and Children $56.90
    Student, Spouse, and Children $95.00

    Spring Semester-Present
    Student Only $15.30
    Student and Spouse $36.35
    Student and Children $33.45
    Student, Spouse, and Children $54.50

    Spring Semester-Proposed
    Student Only $16.90
    Student and Spouse $40.10
    Student and Children $36.90
    Student, Spouse, and Children $60.10

    The reference indicated that the possibility of changing this coverage and inviting bids by other insurers would be considered. However, the Health Service Advisory Committee wishes to defer such action because of the facts that (a) there seems to be general satisfaction with the present program, and (b) postponing action which might change this program will allow the new director of the Student Health Center to participate in related determinations.

    Moved by Mr. Deaton, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that extension of the current contract with the North Idaho Medical Service Bureau at the proposed rates be approved.

    6/13-15/73 63-64
    Vacancy Listing Services Fee The University’s Career Planning and Placement Center would like to offer the service of a special mailing of position vacancies to alumni registered with the Center who wish to receive such a mailing. Recipients of this service will receive a weekly listing of position vacancies on which the Placement Center has information. A charge of $5.00 for a four-month period will be sufficient to cover the costs involved in providing the service, and is proposed. It is estimated that about 300 persons per year will wish to receive this service and that the service can be initiated about October 1, 1973.

    Moved by Mr. Deaton, seconded by Mr. Thatcher, and carried that institution of the above mentioned service and fee be approved.

    6/13-15/73 64
    Medical Insurance Coverage for University Employees Re: Regents’ Minutes for April 6, 1973, pages 103-104.

    The University’s medical insurance program provides for paying 75% of the cost of coverage for full-time employees. They may purchase coverage for members of their immediate families. In accordance with the reference, insurance companies were invited to submit bids for this insurance. Bids were opened on May 22, 1973 and the New England Mutual Life Insurance Company, from whom the University has purchased this insurance since 1956, was the low bidder with monthly rate quotations as follows: single employee- $12.56: employee and spouse- $30.29; employee, spouse and children under age 19- $35.02; employee, spouse and children up to age 24- $37.45.

    The premium cost next year is expected to total about $365,000, which will be an increase of about $50,000 over the current annual cost. The possibility of reducing this cost or improving present coverage is being further investigated. This effort will most probably lead to changing the deductible provision in the insurance from $50 to $100 and possibly to increasing the maximum coverage beyond the current $25,000 maximum.

    Moved by Mr. Benoit, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the Bursar be authorized to conclude the above-described insurance contract with the New England Mutual Life Insurance Company and implement the required collections from University employees who wish to participate in this program.

    6/13-15/73 65
    Payments in Addition to Certified Salary Moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Dr. Munson, and carried that the following payments in addition to certified salary be approved.

    1. Margaret Fosberg- for services during the national swim meet March 15, 16, and 17- $25.00

    2. Carol Dahlberg- for accompaniment services for two graduate recitals April 29 and May 9, 1973- $100.00

    3. Martin McGrane- for consulting work on the Lewiston Advertising Workshop, May 8- $50.00

    4. Ralph Benke- for consulting work on Lewiston Seminars, May 8- $60.00

    6/13-15/73 65
    Reimbursement for Travel with Camper or Trailer A request has been received, as shown by Exhibit XI, that provisions be made to reimburse individuals who use campers or trailers, rather than rent rooms in motels and hotels in connection with official University travel. This provision may save the University money and approval to make such payments is recommended. To implement this proposal, approval is requested to add to Chapter IX, page 157 of the University’s Handbook of Policy and Procedure the following:

    E. When specifically authorized in advance by a University official permitted to approve travel requests, an allowance of $8.00 per day will be paid to the driver of a vehicle equipped with a camper or towing a travel trailer in lieu of payments for lodging.

    It was moved by Mr. Deaton, seconded by Dr. Munson and carried that the item of “7.1 Reimbursement for Travel with Camper or Trailer” be tabled.

    Mr. Benoit voted no. A copy of Exhibit XI is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    6/13-15/73 66
    Clarification of the Status of Recent Board Action Section 232 of the Board’s Policy Manual for Higher Education Institutions states: “In the absence of special regulations to the contrary, Robert’s Rules of Order, newly revised, shall govern the course of all business and debate so far as it may be applicable to the procedures of the Board.”

    The newly-revised edition of Robert’s Rules of Order (1970), pp. 291-292, provides that an action which conflicts with an unrepealed previous action is null and void. This provision in Robert’s has raised doubts as to the official status of some of the recently enacted Board policies related to personnel.

    Therefore, to assure that the most recent Board action supersedes any previous actions which may be in conflict, it is recommended that Section 232 of the Policy Manual be amended to read as follows (the added statement is underscored):

    232. In the absence of special regulations to the contrary, Robert’s Rules of Order, newly revised, shall govern the course of all business and debate so far as it may be applied to the procedures of the Board, except that a Board action which conflicts with a previous action takes precedence and, in effect, amends (in part or in whole) the previous action.

    Moved by Mr. Benoit, seconded by Mr. Thatcher, and carried that Section 232 of the Board’s Policy Manual for Higher Education Institutions be amended as shown above.

    6/13-15/73 66-67
    Revised Campus Traffic and Parking Regulations Moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the revised campus traffic and parking regulations attached as Exhibit XII be approved, effective August 15, 1973. These regulations do not change in any substantive way the regulations which were approved last year by the Regents and which are now in effect. Revised regulations are necessary because of such things as changes in the campus map and certain parking lot designations. A copy of Exhibit XII is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit. 6/13-15/73 67
    Student Code of Conduct (Article VIII) At the meeting of April 5-6, 1973, the Board confirmed all articles of the proposed Student Code of Conduct with the exception of Article VIII. The deferred article is quoted below:

    Article VIII. Drugs and Alcohol

    The University does not condone or remain indifferent to any act or conduct which impairs the pursuit or dissemination of knowledge or which may be judged to have a deleterious effect upon the academic community. The primary role of the University in handling matters involving the use or potential use of drugs or alcohol by its students is that of counseling. The investigatory, prosecuting and disciplinary roles relating to illegal drug and alcohol use are the responsibility of law-enforcement authorities. However, jeopardizing the academic operation or interests of the University community through drug or alcohol use is a violation of this code.

    Sanctions that may be imposed by the judicial system for such a violation range from warning through expulsion (see Article XI), depending on the nature and extent of the offense. Sanctions already imposed by the civil process shall be taken into account when imposing university sanctions.

    The above article is again submitted for the Board’s confirmation. It is the sincere hope of the Faculty Council that if the Board cannot accept the article as presented, the matter will be returned to the University Faculty for further study, in keeping with the University Faculty’s responsibility for the establishment of rules and regulations governing the conduct of students.

    Moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the action of the University Faculty in establishing Article VIII of the Student Code of Conduct, as reported to the Board at the meeting of April 5-6, be denied.

    6/13-15/73 67-68
    Student Judicial System of the University of Idaho At the meeting of April 17-18, 1969, the Board sustained the University Faculty’s action which established the Student Judicial System. With the Board’s adoption of the Statement of Student Rights, November 12, 1970, an appellate Committee of Review was established. This had the effect of modifying the Student Judicial System. Concurrent with the development of the new Code of Conduct, the University Faculty amended the Student Judicial System to bring it into conformity with the basic documents mentioned. The University Faculty’s responsibility for the establishment and maintenance of impartial hearing bodies to handle student disciplinary cases is set forth in Section IV. Paragraph 2, of the Statement of Student Rights. See enclosed Exhibit XIII for the revised Student Judicial System adopted by the University Faculty, March 7, 1973. A copy of Exhibit XIII is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit. 6/13-15/73 68

    6/13-15/73 69
    Report on Contract to Purchase Laboratory Supplies Historically, the University of Idaho has made one large annual purchase of chemicals, glassware and small laboratory equipment. The amounts of such purchases have been between about $30,000 and $60,000. The savings in purchasing large amounts over the cost of small orders, was significant. However, throughout the year as additional items were needed, small individual purchases had to be made at higher prices. This procedure also caused storage problems.

    For the first time, this year, the University has executed a continuing contract for the purchase of such materials. The amount of the purchases under this contract next fiscal year will probably be between $75,000 and $150,000. The new arrangement will permit the University to place small orders throughout the year at the initial low price. For example, we may buy one case of glassware at the same cost as we would pay for the glassware if we were buying 150 cases at one time, saving 24% of what the one case order normally would be.

    We also expect to be able to get better, faster service under the new procedure, and to save about two weeks’ time on individual orders filled during the year, since we will not have to go through the bidding process on each of these, and we will also save mailing time in connection with the placing of orders. When our new procedures are fully implemented, orders will be placed electronically and shipped that same day.

    VWR Scientific of Seattle, Washington was the successful bidder on this new contract. We are hopeful that the annual savings to the University of Idaho made possible by this new purchasing procedure for securing laboratory supplies, chemicals and equipment will amount to between $20,000 and $40,000. Additional information concerning this matter is shown in Exhibit XV attached. A copy of Exhibit XV is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    6/13-15/73 69

    Athletic Insurance Coverage Authority is requested to continue insurance coverage for participants in the inter-collegiate athletic program from August 1, 1973 to August 1, 1974 through the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (under-written by Aetna Life Insurance Company of Hartford, Conn.) under their plan #2 which calls for:

    A- Amount of Medical Coverage $15,000
    B- Deductible Amount, All Sports $1,000
    C- Percentage of Eligible Expense Payment 100%
    D- Accidental Death & Dismemberment $10,000

    This plan represents a change, in that during the current year the deductible amount has been $500, while the new plan calls for this to be $1,000. By self-insuring for the first $1,000 rather than $500, the annual premium will drop from $7,736.40 to $1,233.10.

    Financing of Furnishings and Equipment for College of Law Building Re: Regents’ Minutes for April 1973, page 108

    The above reference reported the situation regarding the furnishing and equipping of the new Law Building. As indicated therein, $300,000 was appropriated for this purpose. The Permanent Building Fund Advisory Council originally had recommended that $100,000 be provided, and apparently the Office of the Commissioner of Public Works programmed cash flow available for such purchases on the basis that only about $100,000 would be required to pay for this equipment and furnishings. The Council authorized the University to solicit bids, and they were requested from 70 firms; 42 of those responded with quotations. The bids would have now been evaluated and the cost of the furnishings which the University has requested authority to buy totals $237, 320.47. ($300,000 was appropriated and authorized) We do not feel that it will be possible to get any lower bids on items of similar quality and believe that the items selected constitute a very good buy. There is a need to order these items without delay, since it could take up to 120 days before items are actually installed in the building after they are ordered and because of the need to begin using the new building next fall semester.

    On June 1, 1973, the University requested permission of the Permanent Building Fund Advisory Council to place purchase orders for the aforementioned items at a total price of $237,320.47. As mentioned above, there seems to be somewhat of a financial problem, in that the Office of the Commissioner of Public Works may not have available sufficient funds to cover completely the needed expenditures if the items are ordered at this time. That office has asked whether or not it would be possible for the University to temporarily carry about $100,000 of the total purchase cost, with the understanding that this money would be repaid to the University by the Office of the Commissioner of Public Works about July 1, 1974.

    As explained when the request was made, the University does not have this money programmed either but would have to borrow it in some way. We would not like to have to do this. However, we would like even less being permitted to buy only part of the items now needed for the law building, and being required to go through the bidding and related process again next year for the remaining items. The items are needed at this time and if they are purchased next year, the price will undoubtedly be higher.

    Accordingly, authority is requested for the Bursar to work with the Office of the Commissioner of Public Works, and for the University to help with the financing of furnishings for the new law building up to about $100,000, if and as necessary, with the understanding that the Office of the Commissioner of Public Works of the State of Idaho will repay the University the amount so advanced, about July 1, 1974. Regents’ authority is further requested for the Bursar to borrow any such needed funds either from internal University sources or externally as is most economical and appropriate.

    Moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mr. Benoit, and carried that the above recommendations be approved.

The architect’s description of this stadium is attached at Exhibit XX. As indicated therein, “When completed the new Idaho Enclosed Stadium will accommodate not only football, soccer, indoor track, basketball, tennis, volleyball, but can be used for baseball practice, golf practice, wrestling, boxing, intramural sports, band and drill team practices and events, commencement and large audience events such as ‘rock’ concerts, circuses, carnivals, exhibits, road and trade shows, extra large catered banquets (would handle 8,000 persons), dances, rallies, conventions, etc. With use of new artificial ice surfaces, it will accommodate ice skating, hockey and ice follies, etc.”

    The architect estimates that costs for completing the roof and other needed work on the stadium is increasing at the rate of about 12% per year. A fresh cost estimate indicates that about $2.5 million is now needed to complete the roof and related work. There are several reasons why this work should be expedited, in addition to the increases in costs already mentioned. Among these reasons is the fact that this additional work will permit the facility to be multi-purpose. There is a great need for such a facility in Moscow, particularly during bad weather, because of limited recreational facilities in this immediate area. Also, the present facility is far too valuable to be used only four or five times per year for football games, which is about all of the use which can be made of the facility in its present state of construction.

    It will now take about two years to get the roof and end-walls, etc. emplaced, assuming that financing can be arranged. About four months will be required for the architect and consultants to prepare “design/construct” construction and bidding documents. This will cost about $50,000. It will then take about two months to receive and evaluate bids, and about 18 months after that before the project can be completed. This time estimate is not exactly as shown in Exhibit XXI, which is a submission from the architect with related information, but is our current best estimate. By initiating required planning at this time, the enclosed stadium could be ready for use by the fall of 1975. Part of this planning involves the refining of cost estimates.

    With specific reference to the problem of financing, we now have about $300,000 invested and from this amount we are requesting authority at this time to contract with the architect for the preparation of “design/construct” construction and bidding documents, with the understanding that this cost will not exceed $50,000. This will still leave about $250,000 which should be more than enough to provide the undersurfacing below the roll-up turf, about which the students in the past have been particularly interested.

    As shown on page 62 of the minutes of the Regents’ meeting in January, 1972, it was agreed that student leaders would be consulted concerning plans for completing the stadium before expenditure of the above-mentioned $300,000 and that “Funds will be invested in an amount not to exceed $300,000 to be designated as restricted for the purchase of multi-use undersurfacing for the stadium. Prior to the expenditure of any of these funds, ASUI will be consulted.” ASUI leaders have been consulted regarding this situation. Because they are presently not on campus, members of the ASUI Senate were telephoned by the ASUI President. There is agreement that planning should proceed as described above.

    To save time and money, it is advisable to begin immediately to complete the architectural planning for further development of the stadium. Since funds are available to do this planning without expending funds now earmarked for the multi-use undersurfacing planned in the stadium (which the architect now estimates will cost about $244,200, authority to proceed with this planning is now requested.

    Moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mr. Deaton and carried that the Bursar be authorized to sign contracts to expend up to $50,000 to complete “design/construct” documents for the roof, end-walls, and related work for the multi-purpose stadium, as explained above and in Exhibit XXI, with the understanding that, upon the completion of such documents, proposals for financing and completing the stadium will then be reviewed with student leaders and with the Regents prior to proceeding with that development. Authority for the University to initiate a fund-raising campaign to generate donations for the completion of the stadium is also granted, if and when the University President considers it advisable to initiate a fund-raising campaign to generate donations for the completion of the stadium is also granted, if and when the University President considers it advisable to initiate such a campaign.

    Contract Approvals On June 5, 1973, bids were opened on four plant outlay projects at the University: (1) masonry repair on the Life Sciences and Administration Buildings, (2) construction of a portion of Stadium Road to serve the new Law Building and Performing Arts Center, (3) demolition of the old Veterinary Sciences Building, and (4) demolition of the old Entomology Research Building. As shown by the analysis and summary of bids for the four projects, attached as Exhibit XXII, a total of $129,300 was budgeted for this work and the low bids received total $120,086. Because of problems of timing, contracts to complete this work were signed.

    Approval to take this action for projects (2), (3), and (4) was obtained, as shown on pages 88 and 104 of the minutes for the Regents’ meeting on April 6, 1973. Ratification of the contract for masonry repairs, project number 1, is requested.

    Moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the contract mentioned above for masonry repairs on the Life Sciences and Administration Buildings at the University in the amount of $29,100 with the Pioneer Masonry Restoration Company of Seattle, Washington, be approved. A copy of Exhibit XXII is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Establishment of Dr. Leif Verner Scholarship Fund Mrs. Leif Verner has requested that a scholarship fund be established in the name of her late husband, Dr. Leif Verner, who served the University of Idaho from 1927 to 1962 in the Department of Horticulture as a teacher, researcher, administrator and student advisor. The University has now received $1,350 for this purpose, and additional money is expected to be received for this fund. Mrs. Verner has requested that this money be held for investment in the University’s Consolidated Investment Trust until such time as the annual income amounts to at least $100, and at that time that scholarship awards be made to students in the Department of Plant Sciences, according to criteria specified in Exhibit 4, attached. A copy of Exhibit 4 is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    7/16-19/73 55
    Application to Receive Land in Bayview About 0.22 acres of unimproved land in Bayview, Kootenai County, Idaho, has been declared surplus by the federal government. The College of Forestry and Department of Entomology have indicated that they could make use of this site to support aquatic research, and other research involving biological control of weeds and insects, and forest pest management. Acquiring this site will involve no foreseeable costs, but may make possible some savings. The Administration’s desire to request that the title of this land be transferred to the University was discussed with the Regents’ Executive Committee for the University of 22 June 1973. That committee concurred in action to seek to obtain the property. The plan was then to clear this matter with all members of the Board of Regents by means of a circular letter. However, because of problems of timing, it was not possible to do this – the application for the property had to be submitted by early July. In view of the aforementioned factors, and in view of the fact that if the Regents so desired, the application could be withdrawn, on 26 June the Financial Vice President, as Treasurer for the Board of Regents, submitted a formal application for the Regents to receive title to this property. Additional information concerning the property is attached as Exhibit 6.

    A copy of exhibit 6 is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    It was moved by Dr.Munson, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the aforementioned action to apply for title to the above-mentioned land be ratified.

    Renovation of Old Law College Area for Computer Center There is a critical need for new computer facilities with additional space because with present equipment and facilities there is –

    a. Overcrowding of personnel, resulting in poor working conditions, with no privacy for programmers and systems analysts, etc.
    b. Inadequate machine room space, including inadequate ceiling height (minimums of 6’3”), poor ventilation, and no opportunity to install subfloors. Cabling thus currently lies on top of the floor, over which continually increasing numbers of people must walk.
    c. Lack of security control which results in great hazard to essential records from possible fire, vandalism, theft.
    d. Inadequate storage areas for essential supplies and data records. Supplies are stored in the basement hall due to lack of additional lockable space. Lockable storage areas have no temperature or humidity control which results in deterioration of tape, disk and card records.
    e. Inadequate and crowded data submission area.
    f. No readily accessible space where students can correct programs and resubmit them. There is no adequate area where programmer consultants can confer with users concerning programming and use of the center.
    g. Expanded equipment with greater capacity is needed and is being sought. It would be highly desirable to prepare a new machine room before the receipt of such equipment, rather than to wait until FY 1975 for funding for both the new machine room and the new computer.

    Studies have been made to determine how to most economically and efficiently solve the problem of providing adequate space for the Computer Center. These studies have concluded that the area in the Administration Building now being vacated by the College of Law can be made to adequately accommodate the Computer Center. The cost for renovating this area into a suitable Computer Center totals about one-half of what the cost would be to construct a new Computing Center facility. Requests have been submitted for funding from the Permanent Building Fund in the amount of $440,000 for fiscal year 1975 for a complete renovation of the old Law College area for the Computer Center; however, since the College of Law will be moving out of the area about October of this year, and in view of the increasingly critical space problem, with continually increasing computer usage, it is imperative that parts of the Computer Center be moved into the new area this fall, if there is any possible way to permit such a move. The empty space will be available, and, in addition to the problems with the present facilities listed above, there are additional problems stemming from the fact that present offices for Computer Center personnel are disbursed in various areas and in various buildings, and there is a need to consolidate these personnel for increased efficiency.

    Through careful studies with an architect and the Computer Center staff, two particularly critical space needs have been isolated. They may be undertaken as special projects, to help relieve the overall problem. The cost estimate for completing one of these projects, providing a new room for the computer, totals $115,000, as shown by the detailed cost estimate attached as Exhibit 10. It must be emphasized that significant hazards are caused by the cramped conditions in the present machine room and the continually increasing usage of the computer. The lack of security control because of the present situation is mentioned above. The opportunities for significant operational problems and mistakes are increased greatly by the heavy use being made of these cramped facilities. The second project involves collecting the professional staff now disbursed in various locations into a new area within the area previously used by the College of Law. This will improve efficiency and provide programmers and analysts more privacy and much improved working conditions. The estimated cost for accomplishing this project is $55,000, as shown by the cost estimate attached as Exhibit 11. The total cost for the two projects is thus estimated to be about $170,000. If provisions can be made to undertake this work at this time, the $440,000 of funding requested in FY 1975 for the preparation of an adequate Computer Center may be reduced by $170,000.

    At the present time, the $170,000 requirement described above is not budgeted. However, one way to take care of the bulk of the financing for the above requirement has now developed through Bankhead-Jones funds which have just, unexpectedly, been received from the federal government. A check for these funds for the University of Idaho is now being processed for deposit on July 2, 1973. The amount of this check is $156,575. The additional $13,425 to cover the estimated cost of $170,000 cited above can be obtained by reprogramming funds currently budgeted for other University projects, which are also important, but are less important than this need. Bankhead-Jones funds must be spent at the University of Idaho for certain specific instructional programs. These funds may not be used elsewhere or for research, extension activities or plant outlay projects. However, the $156,575 may be used to cover specific instructional costs which would otherwise have been covered in other ways, thus releasing that amount of budgeted funds for use toward covering the $170,000 requirement. In this connection, attention is called to the fact that the Regents released $157,000 from their contingency funds for FY 1973 to cover the financial shortage caused by the fact that Bankhead-Jones funds, which were budgeted to be received by the University, were not received in time to be used in FY 1973. The Regents’ action on this matter is shown on pages 9 and 10 of Regents’ Minutes for March, 1973. Jones funds for FY 1973 were received by the University of Idaho, that appropriate allotment adjustments would be made. However, in view of the date of the release of the Bankhead-Jones funds, it is now requested that the University be permitted to use the $156,575, as described above, to solve the emergency condition previously explained.

    Concerning the overall, increasingly critical computer situation at the University, the computer is used in connection with the teaching of about 104 courses at the University of Idaho in such colleges as Engineering, Forestry, Mining, and Agriculture. About one-third of the students now graduating from the University are involved with the computer academically during the course of their programs here at the University—the education of engineering students is said to now involve is the number one priority of the College of Engineering. The University is increasingly dependent upon the computer for maintaining student and other records and processing accounting and other administration.

    It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that ( a) the University be permitted to make use of Bankhead-Jones funds in the amount of $156,575 to fund specific instructional programs at the University of Idaho for which those funds were provided by the federal government, simultaneously, reprogramming the funds previously budgeted to cover such programs, and other projects as necessary to provide funds for preparing a new machine room for the University’s computer, and space for the professional staff of the Computer Center, as described above, and (b) the Bursar be authorized to take necessary actions to receive bids and to accept the lowest responsive bids to accomplish this work.

    7/16-19/73 61-62
    Purchase and Sale of Computer This is to obtain authority to sell the IBM 360/40 central processing unit now being bought by the University and to buy computing equipment with more capacity. Purchasing, rather than renting or leasing the needed equipment, will be most economical, as shown by the comparative cost estimate attached as Exhibit 12. The new hardware should accommodate the University’s needs for five years, and any time after three years, the University should have no special problem in selling this equipment for more than the balance which the University will then owe on it.

    At the end of this fiscal year, the University will still owe $15,933.60 on the IBM 360/40 central processing unit which is now being purchased. As yet, it is not possible to determine exactly how much money we can get for this equipment when we sell it, because of such factors as the fact that we do not yet know for certain when we will be able to release this equipment. However, we might be able to get as much as $80,000 from this sale. (If we do not sell this equipment to an educational institution, we will have to rebate to IBM $20,311 of the amount we get for the equipment, to cover an educational discount which we were allowed.) In any event, in payments made we have saved perhaps $75,000 by buying, rather than leasing, and we are confident that we can now sell this equipment for more than we owe on it. We plan to use these savings to help cover financial requirements of the computer center.

    We propose that the time schedule shown below be followed. This schedule is very tight, with little room for slippage, since up to fourteen months could be required to get delivery of computer equipment to be purchased after it is ordered.

    July 1973- University prepares detailed bid specifications

    August 1, 1973- University invites vendors to submit bids

    October 1, 1973- Bids opened

    October 2, 1973- November 14, 1973 University evaluates bids

    November 15, 1973- Vendor announced and purchase orders signed

    July 1974- New system delivered—a new computer machine room must be completed before new equipment can be received. Regents’ authority to do this work has been requested.

    Funding for new computing hardware, with related operating funds, has a high priority in the University’s budget request for next fiscal year. Tentative arrangements have been made for each of the past two years to lease or buy new computing equipment, only to be cancelled as the University’s actual financial situation became apparent. Further postponements of the acquisition of computer hardware with increased capacity is not possible, without grave harm being done to the University. As previously reported to the Regents, the University’s present computing capability is saturated and unable to accommodate various academic needs. Additional information concerning the computer situation at the University is presented in Item 5.12 with these agenda materials and in the Preliminary Five-year Plan attached as Exhibit 13. (Limited distribution)

    The new Director of the Computer Center at the University has been consulted concerning these proposals and he concurs with them. He is not scheduled to report for work until about July 19, 1973, and after he does arrive, we may wish to make some further refinements in specifications for the equipment upon which bids will be requested. However, regardless of any such changes, the University should be able to buy the computing equipment it needs for about $1.3 million. The University’s needs for this equipment being requested, and our desire to purchase the equipment, have also been discussed with Mr. Hal Turner, Assistant to the Director of Administrative Services in the State’s Department of Administrative Services. He supports these proposals.

    We cannot afford to delay any longer the start of the process to acquire needed computing equipment, in view of leadtime requirements and the University’s needs, which have been explained. Accordingly, commitments must now be made and actions must now be taken, with the understanding that, one way or another, provisions will be made to cover this requirement in the operating budget next fiscal year.

    It was moved by Dr. Munson, seconded by Mr. Benoit, and carried that (a) the University be authorized to solicit bids for computer hardware similar to the equipment listed in Exhibit 13, evaluate bids, and select the specific bids, which will, at a cost of no more than $1.3 million, in the opinion of the Director of the University’s Computer Center, most properly and economically fulfill the University’s computing need, and that (b) the Bursar be authorized (1) to sign contracts to purchase such computing equipment, and arrange necessary financing internally or externally to repay the purchase price over a period of not more than eight years, with annual payments for equipment of no more than $250,000, and (2) to sell the IBM 360/40 central processing unit being bought by the University, when the new equipment becomes available. Timely reports concerning the status of actions taken under the authority given in this action are to be made to the Regents.

    A copy of Exhibit 12 and 13 is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Palouse Empire Mall It was moved by Mr. Alford, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that approvals for the Bursar to sign a Master Ground Lease with E.D. McCarthy, Inc. (to lease to him about 40 acres of land owned by the University), and for the Bursar to sign an Agreement Terminating Employment Agreement with E.D. McCarthy, are hereby ratified. The Bursar’s authority to sign contracts to expend up to $300,000 of nonappropriated funds to improve the aforementioned 40-acre plot, by providing for such things as drainage and other basic improvements to facilitate its development as a shopping center, in accordance with previous understandings and commitments, and as provided for in the aforementioned Master Ground Lease, is also ratified. Executed copies of the Master Ground Lease and Agreement Terminating Employment Agreement will be filed in the Office of Higher Education.

    A copy of information submitted will be on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit. Mr. Benoit and Mr. Deaton voted no.

    7/16-19/73 64
    Payment in Addition to Certified Salaries It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the following payments, in addition to certified salaries, be approved:

    1. Dr. Joel Hamilton, from funds from WSU, for participation in a research project on an overload basis- $1,500
    2. Douglas L. Grant, for the preparation of a course in the Public Administration Certification Program, June 11-29, 1973- $1,125
    3. Dr. Richard Nelson, for consultant work on school finance project, 15-20 June 1973- $375.00

    7/16-19/73 64-65
    Moving Expense It was moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Alford, and carried that the University be authorized to pay 75% of the cost of actual moving expenses incurred by Victor P. Eroschenko for his move from Sacramento, California to Moscow, Idaho, with the understanding that the cost to the University is expected to total about $375.00. 7/16-19/73 65
    Use of Land-Grant Endowment Funds As previously reported to the Regents, the land-grant endowment received by the University last fiscal year was greater than what we were told that this income would be, and such funds carried forward for expenditure in the current fiscal year amount to $75,000. This money is needed to cover urgent needs as follows:

    Proposed Allocation
    Moving cost- Colleges of Law & Agriculture- $12,000
    Vacation pay for faculty converted from 12 to 10 months- $12,000
    Funding for Forestry as discussed with Executive Committee- $30,000
    Partial remodeling of area for the Computer Center- $21,000*
    Total- $75,000

    *This expenditure provides for a continuation of another phase of the renovation of the old law college area as discussed in Item 5.12 with these agenda materials. That item concerns the provision of a computer machine room and space for computer staff personnel. This $21,000 is proposed for allocation against the $25,000 requirement enumerated on Exhibit 14. That exhibit is a cost estimate for preparation of an area to be used by the Director of the Computer Center, in accordance with architectural plans which have been developed.

    It was moved by Mr. Benoit, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that approval be given to utilize land-grant endowment funds as proposed above, and that the Bursar be authorized to call for bids and accept the lowest responsive bids for a partial renovation of the new area for the computer center as described above, with the understanding that if the low bids for this work exceed the $21,000 cited above, that the excess cost may be covered by reprogramming within the budget for plant outlay projects. A copy of Exhibit 14 is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Student Code of Conduct Article VIII. Drugs and Alcohol under the “Student Code of Conduct” was held at the April, 1973, board meeting.

    It was moved by Mr. Benoit, seconded by Mrs. Hay and carried that Article VIII, Drugs and Alcohol be amended by the addition underlined:

    Article VIII. Drugs and Alcohol.

    The university does not condone or remain indifferent to any act or conduct which impairs the pursuit or dissemination of knowledge or which may be judged to have a deleterious effect upon the academic community. The primary role of the university in handling matters involving the use or potential use of drugs or alcohol by its students is that of counseling. The investigatory, prosecuting and disciplinary roles relating to illegal drug and alcohol use are the responsibility of law enforcement authorities. However, jeopardizing the academic operation or interests of the university community through drug or alcohol use is a violation of this code.

    Furthermore, at the meeting of 14 June 1973 the State Board of Education and Board of Regents of the University of Idaho reaffirmed the board’s opposition to possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages by students on the campuses of Idaho state institutions of higher education.

    Sanctions that may be imposed by the judicial system for such a violation range from warning through expulsion (see article XI), depending on the nature and extent of the offense. Sanctions already imposed by the civil process shall be taken into account when imposing university sanctions.

    Notion carried with a vote of five to two. Mr. Thatcher and Mr. Deaton voted no.

    7/16-19/73 67

    Student Exchange Agreement with Oregon State University President Robert MacVicar of Oregon State University has proposed that undergraduate students at the University of Idaho who wish to major in the field of food science and technology at Oregon State University be permitted to enroll in that program without payment of out-of-stat fees and undergraduate students from Oregon State University who wish to major in the field of mining engineering and geological engineering at the University of Idaho be permitted to enroll in these programs without paying out-of-state tuition. This arrangement is recommended, since students from Oregon State University can be absorbed into courses offered here without causing any measurable increase in costs, and since this arrangement will expand opportunities for, and result in lower charges made to, Idaho students.

    Moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mrs. Hay, and carried that the President of the University of Idaho be authorized (a) to continue investigation of the desirability of concluding an agreement with Oregon State University similar to the one attached at Exhibit 4, and (b) to sign such an agreement if he concludes that it is advantageous to do so. A copy of Exhibit 4 is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Registration Fee for Participants in a Continuing Education Program The U.S. Forest Service is paying the total cost, including instructional cost and institutional overhead, for a course of instruction for a group of practicing professional foresters. This instruction will be given on campus at the University of Idaho from October 1 to November 1, 1973. Agreements made in connection with the establishment of this program provided for students in the program not to be charged regular fees, but for students in the program who wish to receive university credit for completing this instruction each to be charged a special fee of $50 to cover administrative costs. Related information is attached as Exhibit 12. A copy of Exhibit 12 is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit. 10/11-12/73 59
    Waiver of Fees for Persons 65 Years of Age and Older Initiation of a Senior Scholars program has been suggested to begin next semester. Under this program, certain persons would be permitted to enroll in resident courses, on a space available basis, without the payment of regular student fees. Special lab or materials or course costs would be assessed, if such charges are made to students who take the courses concerned. Persons in the program would not be eligible for services and activities made available to fee-paying students, such as insurance, student health services, ASUI membership, and free admission to athletic events.

    This program should not result in any increase in measurable cost to the University. Provisions can be made for participants in this program to register after regular registration. This way they may be permitted to enroll in classes which are scheduled to be conducted and which have not been completely filled. It is also proposed that each participant in the program (a) furnish evidence of his or her age to the Director of Admissions before entering this program, (b) be charged the standard registration fee, now $20 per semester, to cover costs of related administration and academic counseling, and (c) not be restricted as to the number of credit hours in which he or she may enroll. Very few persons are expected to participate in this program, and adoption of it on a trial basis is recommended.

    Moved by Mr. Thatcher, seconded by Mr. Engelking, and carried that the President of the University of Idaho be permitted to initiate or discontinue a “Senior Scholars” program, substantially as outlined above, as he determines to be advisable.

    10/11-12/73 60
    Redesignation of Use to be Made of $3 of the Uniform Student Fee An explanation of the use made of the $190 uniform student fee is attached at Exhibit 13. Three dollars of the $91.50 cited on the exhibit to be used for buildings was initiated in September 1966 for capital improvements in the Student Union Building. Later, with Regents’ approval, this $3 was used toward the cost of golf course expansion and to help cover the cost of a golf course driving range. Those costs have now been paid off and the ASUI Senate has requested that henceforth the $3 be used as follows: (a) $1.50 to be used toward the operating costs of the Student Union Building. With rising costs, this increase is needed to balance the budget for the SUB, and without the increase it would be necessary to increase other charges or to decrease services. (b) $1.50 to be earmarked specifically for capital expenditures specified by the ASUI Senate, e.g. equipment or remodeling projects. It is proposed that the Business Office keep this reserve invested in short-term investments and that such investment earnings be added to this reserve. Standard Regents’ approval will be secured prior to making expenditures from this reserve. Use of the $3 fee in this way is recommended. A copy of Exhibit 13 is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    Moved by Mr. Benoit, seconded by Dr. Munson, and carried that the above recommendation be approved.

    10/11-12/73 60

    Closing of Bank Accounts Re: Regents’ Minutes for July 1972, page 48 and Exhibit 12 with those Minutes.

    The above reference presents approved Regents’ policy governing certain financial procedures at the University of Idaho. Such policy permits the Financial Vice President to establish such bank accounts as he determines to be necessary to transact the University’s business and specifies that any new account which is opened or any existing account which is closed will be reported to the Regents along with a brief explanation of the reasons for such action, either before the action is taken, or at the next Regents’ meeting following the action.

    The bank accounts listed below were closed as of August 31, 1973 to improve financial administration in conformance with audit recommendations. With present procedures, these specific bank accounts are unnecessary, and eliminating them will (a) free money which would otherwise be tied up in compensating balances, (b) permit the immediate use of cash within the University’s principal operating accounts which was formerly remitted to these accounts on a monthly basis, and (c) reduce the requirements for financial accounting at Branch Stations.

    Report on Rental Increase for Bookstore The University Bookstore adjoins the Student Union Building and for the past eight years the Bookstore has paid the Student Union an annual rental of $20,000 per year. During this time there has been no increase in this rent. The rent goes into the general operating budget for the Student Union and helps to cover the cost of such things as custodial service and building upkeep for the Student Union Building. The Student Union has now turned over additional storage area to the Bookstore, and the General Manager of the Student Union and the Manager of the University Bookstore have agreed that the annual rental charge should be increased to $25,000. This increase was approved by the Financial Vice President, effective July 1, 1973. 10/11-12/73 62-63
    Submission of Audit Report Submitted herewith as Exhibit 14 is a report from Price Waterhouse and Co.- Recommendations for Improving Internal Accounting Controls in Administrative Efficiency, dated May 31, 1973. A copy of Exhibit 14 is on file in the Office of Higher Education as a permanent exhibit.

    In general, good progress is being made and no critical problem is cited in this report. It contains much less in the way of recommendations than have previous reports, partly because of actions taken to implement previous recommendations. The report does point out areas where further improvements are needed. Some previous recommendations have not yet been implemented because of funding shortages and for other reasons; however, we will continue to give special attention to each finding and either promptly implement each recommendation or be prepared to explain why this has not been done. The Financial Vice President will be available to report further to the Regents concerning any of the auditors’ specific findings and recommendations, or concerning actions taken or planned as a result of auditors’ reports, as Regents may desire.
