         approve and accept items in the agenda to permit additional discussion to take
         place concerning the projections for KTWU-TV found on pages 7 & 8 of the
         report.  Mr. Roth noted that the information is a bit confusing in that it shows,
         under the information for income and expenditures, the budgeted amount for the
         entire 12-month period but under actual amount shows only the amounts
         received and expended for the 6-month period from July 1-December 31, 1996.

Regent Ferrell arrived at 7:13 p.m.

         Dr. Dale Anderson, General Manager of KTWU-TV, made a brief presentation to
         the Board providing members of the Board a copy of a memorandum he had
         submitted to Vice Presidents Sheley and Mosiman outlining the adjusted FY'97
         income projections for the institution and proposed reductions in the
         expenditures to be made by the station during the year.  Dr. Anderson
         represented that with the action taken by his administration that the station
         should break even for the year.  The Board of Regents requested that monthly
         reports concerning the station's income and expenditures be provided to the
         Board through Vice President for Administration and Treasurer, Louis E. Mosiman
         beginning with the March meeting so that the Board can monitor the situation. 
         No action was taken as the item was for information only.
