     Proposed Special Research Project
     1. Project number: 70
    2. Title: Improvement of tree seedling establishment
    3. Probable duration: five years
    4. Personnel: FH Pitkin and H Loewenstein
    5. Cooperating Groups: Tree farmers in northern Idaho
    6. Estimated Cost of the project: $1,750.00 annually
    7. Financial Support: Special research (see item 11 for budget breakdown)
    8. Objective: To study seedling survival and determine the effects relative to (a) variations of survival in relation to climate, soil and topography, (b) characteristics and condition of the plant materials in relation to survival, (c) relation of competing vegetation to survival.
    9. Reasons for Making this Study: The establishment of three seedlings in western United States is more difficult than in many other regions. Harvested areas have been and are lying partially or completely bare of tree growth after many years and repeated attempts at reforestation. Poor survival has been especially prominent in attempts to plant trees on land to be taken out of agricultural crops. The proposed study will contribute to the store fundamental knowledge required for the solution of reforestation. And tree growth problems.
    10. Procedure: minimum to two test plots will be established. Studies at each plot will include the following:
    a. Physiological studies of survival and growth in relation to temperature. Daily recordings of air and soil surface temperatures should be taken.
    b. Physiological studies of survival and growth in relation to soil- atmosphere, moisture, and temperature relationship- in addition to organic matter, bulk density and fertility. Daily recording of atmospheric humidity and soil moisture 1” below soil surface and 6” below soil surface.
    c. Studies of competing vegetation in relation to survival and growth. Test will be made with clean cultivation, scalping, furrowing and mulching.
    d. Studies of seedling quality and the relationship of survival and growth. This will include tests of seedlings, transplants, and root length.
    e. Different planting techniques will be made for a possible survival relationship.

     Proposed Project
     1. Project Number: 71
    2. Title: Development of Economical Residential Heat Pump
    3. Probable Duration: About one and one-half years
    4. Personnel: Allen S. Janssen (Director, Engineering Experiment Station) CC Warnick (Associate Director, Engineering Experiment Station)
    5. University Departments Cooperating: Mechanical, Agricultural, and Electrical Engineering.
    6. Interested Groups: Idaho Power Company, Washington Water Power Company, Utah Power and Light Company, Rural Electrification Administration, American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers, Various equipment manufacturers, installation and service groups.
    7. Estimated Cost of Project: This project would require $2500 for the first year of operation. Approval should be made as soon as possible so that initial design work could begin by May 1, 1960. The expenditures would be approximately as follows: Salaries, Irregular Help, Capital Outlay, Other Expenses. The cost of the additional half year of operation would be approximately $1250.
    8. Financial Support: The organizations listed under Item 6 have been contacted regarding interest and support for this project. It is anticipated that interested companies who would directly and indirectly benefit from this project would contribute equipment so that the capital outlay required would not exceed the $500 requested. At the present time it is too early to know whether any outside support can be obtained. However, should funds be received, the amount required for the additional half year of operation could be reduced or eliminated.
    9. Objectives and Reasons for Project: the object of this project is to develop a heat pump for residential and small commercial establishments, the initial cost of which will be substantially less than models now available and whose operating cost will be less than that of electrical strip heaters, oil or gas.
    Current design of packaged heat pumps is based on conditions found in the Southeastern States, particularly Florida, where the heating load is small compared to the summer air conditioning required and winter temperatures are seldom under 40°F. For this reason the basic design is primarily for air conditioning, and the heating is secondary.
    Through this project it is hoped to establish design and engineering criteria for a heat pump to be used for heating under conditions found in most of Idaho. No attempt will be made to use it for air conditioning. This will be ideal for areas where air conditioning, and the heating is secondary.
    A great portion of the State would fall into the above category. Coupled with the fact that electricity is relatively inexpensive it would be possible to operate a heat pump for approximately one-third of the cost of electrical strip heaters and 20 per cent less than gas or oil. The exact amount would, of course, depend upon the temperature of the heat pump source.
    The major reason why heat pumps are not used in this state is because, as mentioned before, the ones available are designed as packaged units to operate on a heavy cooling load and a light heating load and are consequently too expensive to be used in areas where a large cooling load does not exist or where less expensive evaporative coolers can be used. A heat pump designed to heat only could be manufactured at a considerably reduced cost, and if baseboard radiation were used for the condenser (which cannot be done for cooling) then still further cost reductions are possible.
    A design of the above type would mean that only about 60 percent of the unit could be manufactured as a package. The balance would be constructed on the job which would benefit the installation contractors greatly. Besides the obvious benefit to the installation and service organizations, it might be possible to develop manufacturing facilities in Idaho since East Coast and Mid-West manufacturers who sell mainly in the Southeast would have considerable freight disadvantages in this area.
    These benefits are only secondary to the main one which is the establishment of a means of heating, less expensive than any now available, which could also maintain the many advantages of heating electrically, being clean, safe and having rapid response. The savings and convenience to the people of Idaho would be considerable. This may prove particularly advantageous to rural areas where gas service and even oil delivery is a serious economic handicap.
    10. Previous and Current Work: The writer has just left a large Midwestern air conditioning and heating manufacturer where he was chief engineer, and to his knowledge, no work is being done in the industry on units of this type proposed in this report.
    11. Proposed Procedure: a thorough investigation would begin in the summer of 1960 to determine the proper method of design and limits of operation. This would entail a knowledge of:
    a. Design conditions throughout Idaho and an establishment of the conditions under which the heat pump would operate.
    b. The cost of electricity, oil and gas in various parts of the state so that exact operating costs could be determined.
    c. Performance data and costs of the component parts made by various manufacturers would have to be obtained. This would include compressors, blowers, coils, controls, etc.
    d. Since there are a number of adaptations to the basic cycle involved, each one would have to be analyzed to determine its feasibility.
    Upon completion of the above analysis, a prototype would be built. This would be tested to determine the actual performance characteristics. Should this be unsuccessful, it would be desirable to install a unit in the Slade House so that operating date could be obtained. The entire project should be completed within 18 months.
    All data obtained from this project would be made available to the sponsors, the people of the State of Idaho, and all interested persons in the heating industry.

     Special Research Project Proposal
     1. Project Number: 72
    2. Title: Freezing of Alloys of about Eutectic Composition
    3. Probable Duration: One year for the Linear Freezing Velocity Work
    4. Personnel: Dr. Donald F. Clifton, Assistant Professor of Metallurgy, Project Director.
    5. Other Cooperating Groups: The Bunker Hill Company
    6. Estimated Cost of Project: Salaries, Irregular Help, Travel, Other Expenses, Capital Outlay, $989.00
    7. Financial Support: Work on measuring of linear freezing velocities of eutectic alloys has been started on department funds. The Bunker Hill Company has contributed high purity metals with a market value of about $800. Cerro De Pasco Corporation and Wah Chang Corporation have also contributed high purity metals for this work.
    8. Reasons for Making the Study and Objectives: Many alloys of eutectic and near-eutectic composition find wide commercial use. However, we have very little fundamental knowledge of how these alloys freeze through some of them, such as the wiping solders, find use because of their unique freezing behavior.
    The problem is of particular interest of Idaho because zinc, lead, silver, and cadmium all find use in this type of alloy. Most of the commercial zinc alloys, except for brass, contain more or less of the eutectic constituent. Most of the soft solders containing lead are close to the eutectic composition as are many of the lead base bearing alloys. Silver solders, which use an appreciable fraction of our silver production and also contain zinc, are of near eutectic composition. The special fusible alloys, such as the well-known woods metal, are complex eutectic alloys that often contain lead and cadmium.
    The eutectic and near-eutectic alloys find use especially because they combine low melting points with high strength relative to the pure metals forming the alloy.
    Since the solidification behavior of so many of the eutectic alloys determine their usefulness any new knowledge of how these alloys freeze should make possible more intelligent of expanded use of the present alloys and could lead to the development of even more satisfactory alloys.
    9. Previous Work: A fairly extensive literature search has not revealed any significant work on the kinetics of either nucleation, the first necessary step in the freezing process, or growth of the solid. Crystallographic relations in eutectics have been superficially investigated by the results were not correlated with the mechanism of solidification. There was little work done about twenty five years ago on the structure of molten alloys of eutectic composition that might be useful in interpreting results expected from the proposed work.
    There is a large literature on the engineering applications of the eutectic and near-eutectic alloys and some empirical data on the effect of certain variables on the freezing of a few of the alloys. This literature reflects the lack of knowledge of the mechanism of freezing of these alloys. The work as reported in the literature has very little bearing on the proposed work except to point to the need for such an investigation.
    There has been a good deal of work done on the freezing of pure metals that will supply valuable supplementary information for the proposed work.
    10. Current Status of the Work: Through the generosity of the companies mentioned, metals for making up several of the alloys to be studied have been obtained. Several eutectic alloys have been made up and the experimental technique for measuring linear freezing velocities is being perfected.
    11. Proposed Procedures: the first step in the investigation will be to measure the linear freezing velocities as a function of supercooling for several groups of binary alloys with compositions at and near the eutectic. A eutectic is a mixture of definite amounts of two alloy phases. When the allow differs slightly from the eutectic composition one of the other phase will be present in excess the tend to freeze out at a temperature above the freezing point of the eutectic. The effect of the excess phase on freezing will be one of the most interesting objects of the study as it should tell if one of the phase governs the freezing of a eutectic or if the eutectic freezes in a unique manner more or less independent of the behavior of the constituent phases.
    The linear freezing velocity measurements as outlined will be valuable in themselves and considerable information concerning the detailed mechanism of freezing of eutectic is expected. This part of the work should be finished within a year.
    Time permitting metallographic and X-ray diffraction studies will be made of specimens from linear freezing velocity experiments and the results correlated. Determination of the maximum supercooling of fine droplets of the alloys studied will be carried out to determine the homogenous nucleation behavior of the alloys.
    This combination of experiments would give a good semi-quantitative picture of the mechanism of freezing of eutectic alloys. By correlating the results with other data, such as diffusion coefficients and thermal conductivity some contribution to the fundamental theory of freezing can be expected.

     University Scholarship Endowment Fund
     At the 17 December 1951 meeting the Regents authorized the creation of the University of Idaho Scholarship Fund on the Proposed basis that contributions to this fund, and earnings on contributions, would be accumulated until the principal of the fund amounted to $100,000, at which time the earnings of the fund would be used to initiate a program of “County” scholarship awards. It was estimated that this could be accomplished in ten years.
    The Regents authorized the temporary investment in government securities of cash balances in Regents funds and Bursar’s funds to accomplish earnings on balances in these funds, with the earnings to be deposited in the scholarship fund. Also, beginning with the year 1950-51, an allocation of $1,000 per year from University Student Bookstore earnings to the fund was authorized.
    The principal (deposits) of the fund has now reached the foal of $100,000 which enables the University to initiate a program of “County” scholarship awards for the academic year 1961-62, supported for that year by earning from the fund for the period 1 July 1960-30 June 1961.
    After the close of the current fiscal year a report shall be made to the Regents of the detail of contributions and earnings, and the market value of this endowment fund which should exceed $125,000.00.
    That effective 1 July 1960:
    1. The annual contribution of $1,000 form University Bookstore earnings to the University Scholarship Endowment Fund be terminated; and
    2. The earnings from temporary investments in government securities of Regents and Bursars funds no longer be deposited in the University Scholarship Endowment Fund by beginning with 1 July 1960 and continuing until further action by the Regents these earnings shall be applied to the principal of the “Greater University of Idaho Endowment Fund” as created at the 17 March 1960 meeting.

     Pledge of Student Fees
     M/S Campbell/Marcus: That the following resolution be adopted:

     Bids  1. Replacement of Agricultural Science Building Compressor #12,457.62
    2. Revision in Dairy Sciences Condensing System.
    On May 10, 1960, in response public advertisement bids were received and opened for the two projects as listed. The results of the bid openings were listed.
    Mr. Donald D. Wisdom, Consulting Engineer, recommends, with the concurrence of Dean Kraus and Mr. Gagon, that the respective low bid of $10,205.62 is explained by Mr. Wisdom as follows:
    The low bid of the Lewiston Refrigeration Sales Co. in the amount of $10,205 for the Revisions in the Dairy Science Building Condensing System is approximately $3,000 in excess of the funds budgeted for this project.
    The budgeted amount of $7,256 coincides with the amount of our estimate for this project based on the use of an air cooled condenser no installed in the building. The air cooled condenser was originally chosen to eliminate the use of water completely as the majority of maintenance problems in this system arose from the deposits left by the water. After careful consideration and considerable design analysis it became apparent that an air cooled condenser would not be a feasible answer to this problem without extensive revisions of the existing refrigeration equipment, and even then would cause high operating temperatures which could only result in a decreased life of the refrigeration compressors. With this in mind and with Mr. Georg Gagon’s approval, our design was changed to a system utilizing a closed circuit evaporative condenser and water treatment facilities. It was known at the time that this system would be more expensive than the air cooled system originally planned, however, new cost estimates were not made and it was deemed best to proceed with the system design and obtain bids at the earliest possible date.
    We have carefully examined the costs involved in this project and find that the bids submitted are substantially in line with the work involved and recommended and acceptance of the Lewiston Refrigeration Sales Co. bid of $10,205.62 for this portion of the work.
    It is recommended that the respective low bids be accepted on the following budget program and that the University Bursar be authorized to accomplish covering contracts.

     Report of Fire Damage
     June 17, 1960- The Physical Plant Machine Shop was damaged by a fire that started after the shop was closed for the weekend on Friday, June 17. Mr. Wilbur Smith, a Machine Shop employee, returned to the shop about 4:30 p.m. and noticed a fire in the acetylene welding area. The sprinkler system had been activated over the fire area and Mr. Smith extinguished the fire with a shop fir appliance. The probable cause of the fire is that the acetylene tank had a leak, either in the valve, gasket, or regulator on the tank. Shop employees had been welding, just prior to closing time at 4:00 p.m., and a spark from the welding operation could have landed in the cup on the acetylene tank and with the gas leak ignited the hoses which were wrapped around the top of the acetylene tank. Damages to the machine shop and equipment were as follows: Ceilings and walls suffered severe smoke damage; the acetylene tank regulators and hose were destroyed; and water damage from the sprinkler system caused rust damage to equipment and metals in the area. Estimated cost of repairs and replacement, including repainting the entire of the shop are $1,144.00. It is to be noted that without the sprinkler system, this could have been a severe and disastrous fire. 7/13-16/60

     Policy for Contract Research
     M/S Campbell/Engelking: That the following policy be adopted, to be effective 1 July 1960:
    The University of Idaho is frequently in the position, because of available facilities and trained scientists, to undertake contract research. Where there are such facilities and personnel available, the University encourages the staff to cooperate with outside agencies or individuals in research endeavors.
    Contract research, as mentioned herein, denotes that some outside agency or individual contract with the University to undertake specific research in order to develop fact which will be of primary interest to that agency or individual. Contract research does not imply a direct gift in the form of money or equipment to assist a going program and where there is no specific commitment in the use of such fund.
    Where any division of the University desires to implement a research contract, one should first consider the capabilities of divisional facilities and personnel in order to assure completion of the task to be undertaken.
    All funds sought should be sufficient to complete the research contract or at least complete definite phases of the contract.
    It shall be University policy that:
    1. Unless very special circumstances prevail, the University will not undertake sponsored research contracts for amounts less than $1,000. Outright gifts and grants will be received in any amounts but, if the research program is in any way directed or influenced by a formal agreement, with specific obligations of the University indicated, the minimum amount of $1,000 shall pertain.
    2. In the administration of all research contracts, a sum equal to 15% of the contract shall be allocated to cover indirect costs. It is recognized that this amount does not cover total indirect costs and is to be considered a nominal or minimal percentage
    In the event of contracts with agencies of the federal government, the application for indirect costs shall be the maximum authorized by the particular agency up to the actual proven indirect cost. Normally, the amount of 25% will be accepted in lieu of a negotiated amount.
    3. Of the funds received by the University for indirect costs, fifty percent shall be reallocated back to the division (a) concerned for purposes as shall be indicated by the division head for expenditure during the current period. The balance shall be reallocated for general needs of the University.

    The Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station recommends the extension of our present beef cattle breeding program to include loaning promising yearling bulls from our select breeding line to Idaho Livestock cooperators in order to obtain additional performance data on these University beef cattle lines. In this proposal the University will engage in a Memorandum of Understanding with suitable cooperators, whereby one or two selected yearling bulls would be loaned to a cooperator.
    It is further planned that approximately eight (8) progeny from each bull would be purchased form the cooperator. The progeny would be purchased at weaning age for current market prices. These progeny from each loaned bull would then be fed at the University and additional data will be collected in order to more thoroughly evaluate the University breeding lines. The progeny feeding program would be expected to commence in the fall of 1961. The new Monson Memorial feeding barn allows for this expanded beef cattle improvement program.
    Subject to further approval, it is proposed that the purchase of these progeny of selected bulls be accomplished by establishing a revolving fund of $6,000-$7,000 from funds that may be available to the Experiment Station. This procedure would be similar to that used in the Caldwell Station feeding programs.

     Approval of Courses- Adult Education Center- Mountain Home Air Force Base
     Two of the three courses proposed for offering at the Adult Education Center- Mountain Home Air Force Base during the first semester, 1960-61, do not as yet have an enrollment sufficient to cover all direct expenses.
    However, income from all three courses, based upon present enrollment, is apple to cover the cost of the deficits and result in the following outcome for the first semester’s operation.
    The Adult Education Center at Mountain Home Air Force Base is able to offer a rather limited number of courses because the proportion of students eligible for upper division courses is limited. The Director of Adult Education is hopeful that a more extensive program can be developed there, but is anxious in the meantime, to serve whatever needs it is able to meet.
    In view of the fact that a modest surplus will result, it is requested that the Mountain Home Air Force Base- Adult Education Center be permitted to offer these two courses.

    That approval be granted for the purchase of one AC-DC inert gas welder with specifications and accessories listed from suggested sources at an estimated cost of $1167.00.
    Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer Magnet and Power Supply
    That authorization be gratned to proceed with the purchase of the following major equipment item for the Department of Physical Science and to mark $20,000 of 1959-60 funds for this purpose: Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer including Magnet and Power Supply.
    Dr. M.M. Renfrew, Head, Department of Physical Sciences, states in justification of this purchase:
    Magnetic resonance spectrometry now promises to take the place beside infrared spectroscopy as a remarkable powerful tool in analytical chemistry and in physical determinations of molecular structure. There still is substantial basic research work in progress to extend the range of applications, but already the usefulness of the method is firmly established in several key fields of physical science.
    Two types of magnetic resonance spectroscopy are now practiced with complimentary benefits:
    a. Electronic resonance methods- especially of interest to physicists and physical chemists for the investigation of “solid state” phenomena, free radicals, and biological systems (enzymes, etc.).
    b. Nuclear resonance methods- particularly useful to organic chemists for the structure determination of new compounds and for the analysis of hydrogen-containing materials.
    A single powerful magnet can be employed for both types but the auxiliary spectrometers differ substantially.
    It is proposed at this time to buy just the magnet and power source (the Varian V-4015-A magnet plus a V-2100 power supply are considered standard and can be purchased for $20,000 with minor accessories.) With this equipment on hand, our physics group can then undertake the construction of a spectrometer to meet research needs. This will provide profitable research experience for students at the MS level.
    The purchase of the basic magnet will substantially improve the research capacities of our physical science group and will improve our ability to train scientists. Also, it is likely that the availability of a completed instrument of our campus will be of benefit to industry of our state.

This property is located immediately across Line Street (corner lot) from the University Heating Plant. It is very advisable that the university obtain this property because of the strategic location. Control of this property would leave only two private homes in the block occupied by Gault-Upham Halls. It is believed the property could be obtained at a price of $14,000 to $15,000.

    Twenty-five ($25 Dollar Non-Resident Student Admission Fee he Board of Regents at the Boise meeting, September 15-16, 1960, made effective with admission for first semester 1961-62, and thereafter, all non-resident students shall be required to pay a fee of $25.00 for application for admission to the University of Idaho for on-campus work. The fee to apply to both graduate and undergraduate students.
    Accumulated evidence from all departments giving graduate work indicates that because of certain circumstances dealing with fellowships and scholarships, especially under the National Defense Education Act of 1958, we should not make the fee applicable for the for the academic year 1961-62. Accordingly, I recommend to the Regents that the above mentioned fee not be applied to graduate students until the first semester 1962-63.
    Further, because of extreme difficulty being experienced by the Department of Athletics personnel in recruiting non-resident athletes I recommend that the $25.00 fee for application be waived if the Director of Athletics certifies in writing that the applicant will be awarded an athletic scholarship (at least a half or more scholarship). Note: Ballots enclosed.

    Purchase of Ewes- Dubois That the following recommendations of associate Director R.D. Ensign be approved with the understanding that selection of animals and determination of price shall be delegated to the Agricultural Experiment Station to be exercised by Kenneth R. Frederiksen:
    “Over the years the sheep breeding program at Dubois has involved the development of various inbred lines of sheep. The breeding program has reached a point where there is a need to further evaluate some of these rams by using unrelated commercial sheep. By using unrelated commercial ewes, the rams can be top crossed to evaluate their performance. It is impossible to evaluate these inbred rams by using related lines of sheep now on the Station.
    “In order to accomplish the testing of these breeding lines on the Station, we recommend the following proposal:
    “1. This fall we dispose of 650 head of ewes and the present breeding line at Dubois station. These ewes will be offered for sale at our annual sale. By disposing of these 650 head of ewes, we can make room for the purchase of 650 head of commercial ewes without increasing the total number.
    “2. This fall we propose to by 650 head of unrelated ewes to be used in testing present breeding lines of sheep at the Dubois Station. Approximately 450 head of these ewes are to be purchased from the restricted current fund of the US Sheep Station budget and the balance to be purchased from Federal funds available to the Sheep Station.
    “3. It is further requested that approval be obtained to purchase the ewes from owners of sheep who are interested in selling these ewes to the University to not exceed the maximum price of $25 a head. It will be necessary for the personnel at the Sheep Station to select specific type of sheep from as many as 5 different sources in order to obtain the type of sheep necessary for the evaluation program.
    “4. All ewes to be purchased for this program will be the property of the University of Idaho, regardless of source of funds.

    Pledge of Student Fees Reference: Page 19 of the 2-5 June 1960 meeting.
    That the following resolution be approved: “Whereas, by formal motion at the meeting of the Regents on 2-5 June 1960 it was resolved: “That effective 1 September 1961 and henceforth the additional fee of $50 charged all non-resident students be used exclusively for the purpose of adding to the student facilities fund and dormitory fund heretofore be established, including the pledge of such income for bond or note issues to finance the construction of further student facilities.”; and
    Whereas, plans now have been developed for the construction of the Wallace Dormitory Complex to provide a cafeteria and dormitory units, the cost of which, in part, is to be financed by the sale of bonds;
    Now, therefore, it be resolved, that effective 1 September 1963 and henceforth as needed so long as bonds are outstanding a charge of $50 per semester or $100 per academic year (no charge during summer session) shall be assessed at the University which amount shall be irrevocably pledged for payment of principal and interest of bonds to be sold to finance the construction of the principal and interest of bonds to be sold to finance the construction of the Wallace Dormitory Complex. This charge of $50 shall be in addition to other charges assessed as non-resident tuition. Currently the total semester charge for undergraduate students is $125 per semester for non-resident tuition in addition to regular fees- $50 of which is hereby pledged to said bond issue and $75 of which is to be applied to general budgeted operations.

    Report of Committee on the Disposition of Law Books at Lewis-Clark Normal School The above entitled committee has investigated the problem of what should be done with the law books currently being stored at the Lewis-Clark Normal School. These books were originally a part of the Idaho Supreme Court Law Library at Lewiston. When that library was abandoned, the books were turned over by statute to Nez Perce County. The county in turn gave the Clearwater Bar authority to use the books establishing county law library. The Clearwater Bar selected the books which would be useful in a county law library and then turned the balance of the books over to the College of Law, University of Idaho. At that time the College of Law was in its old quarters and there was no library space available so the books were stored at the Lewis-Clark Normal School.
    The Committee recommends that the law books be disposed of as follows:
    1. The College of Law should first select all books which would be of value to in supplementing its law library. All Idaho Reports and Session laws are to be preserved.
    2. Thereafter all members of the senior class of the College of Law are to be given an opportunity to select without charge any books which they might desire for their own law libraries.
    3. After steps one and two above, the remaining books shall be disposed of by the Dean of the College of Law either by sail or by destruction. Proceeds of any sales are to be used in buying additional books for the College of Law Library.

    The purpose of this advisory group would be to listed to lessons prepared by students in the above course who are preparing to handle adult education programs in local communities of the state. In addition, they would serve in an advisory capacity to teachers and students concerning what subjects women in various local communities of the state would be the most interested in studying. The women who would be appointed to this advisory group would be form this vicinity, but we feel confident that they can advise concerning the kinds of problems women in other localities would face.

    General Plans We intend to develop a program for 1962 which will be similar to that of 1961. Several new workshops are planned and the National Defense Education Act in Guidance and Counseling is expected to expand. The mathematics institute will continue and applications for other institutes are being requested by various departments under the NDEA.
    The participation of faculty members in conferences, recitals and individual performances will be encouraged. It is possible that several business and industrial summer training conferences on campus may be arranged. We have had inquiries from several industries in the Boise Valley concerning summer business management conferences.
    It is hoped to continue the summer extension class program and to at least explore the possibility of offering a summer resident center program at Twin Falls.
    12/7-8/61 40-41
    Salaries Salaries for the ten-months faculty members who will be engaged in the 1962 summer school are planned on the same formula as that instituted last year. This formula calls for a salary of 18% of the ten-month’s salary or at the rate of 2 ¼% per week. The maximum salary is $1600. Summer school staff members on twelve-months appointments are not to be paid additionally for summer school services.
    Visiting instructors salaries are to be determined individually. Each case will be presented to the President for his approval before an offer is made.
    12/7-8/61 41
    Regular Budget Authority is requested to plan the 1962 summer school on the basis of the following budget:
    1. This figure was changed to $76,380 because of the new salary formula. Through final figures are not yet available, it would appear that the actual expenditures were about $72, 760.
    2. An increase of one thousand dollars is requested over last year’s budget figure. It is estimated that this amount will be required to cover the salaries under the new formula and in consideration of the new maximum.
    3. No new Irregular Help, Other Expenses, Capital Outlay, and Travel funds are requested.
    12/7-8/61 41
    Activities Budget It is planned to conduct the regular summer school activities upon a budget of $1900. This compares with an income last year of $1855. Total expenditures for the summer have not yet been calculated but apparently will be close to the income figure. It is anticipated that an increased enrollment in the 1962 summer session will provide this additional income and require these additional expenditures. 12/7-8/61 42

    Aberdeen- Refrigeration Experimental Potato Storage That approval be granted the following recommendation by Dr. R.D. Ensign concerning the installation of refrigeration equipment in the Experimental Potato Storage Unit at the Aberdeen Station for which plans and specifications were developed by Mr. Wisdom at an estimate of cost of $4,600 has been established.
    I would like to make the following proposals for the University’s consideration:
    1. That we be allowed to renegotiate our interest with the Lamb-Weston people to see if they would be willing to assist us in the installation of refrigeration equipment in the potato storage at Aberdeen in accordance with the plans and specifications as developed by Mr. Wisdom. This may be handled in two ways; either by a direct grant by the Lamb-Weston people to cover the cost, or the University allow the Lamb-Weston Company to install the equipment in accordance with these specifications, and after completion, donate the installation to the University of Idaho.
    As a first choice, I would recommend that we contact the Lamb-Weston people on the basis of the last recommendation. This company has highly qualified refrigeration engineers and, I understand, man power that they could go to Aberdeen and install this equipment in a minimum of time and possibly do a better job than an outside contractor. If this procedure cannot be followed, possibly the Lamb-Weston people would be interested in providing a grant to the University and then the University contract the job. The last alternative may be that the University do this with its own funds. In view of the fact that the Lamb-Weston Company has shown considerable interest in our storage project, and their previous interest in helping us provide suitable refrigeration, I think it would be appropriate to rediscuss this with them.

This increase allocation totals $26,875 of which $16,465 are Hatch allocations made directly to the Idaho Station and $10,410 made through Regional Research. The Latter amount is already earmarked to assigned Regional Research Projects as indicated below:
    The general intent of Congress is appropriating additional Hatch funds for Agricultural research is “to meet the increasing costs of research programs.” Therefore, these increased funds are being allocated to technical aid positions requested in the 1963-65 premium budget. Should such increases be approved, these positions would be deleted from the 1962-63 request.
