The question Marketplace Conferenceto address cancer, chemical connectionStephen Carter Editor at Large Can the water you drink each day eventually cause cancer in your body? Yes. On April 8. Utah Valley State College will sponsor the lotn annual Environmental Ethics Conference. The conference will address the connectionbetween chemical pollution and cancer. T h e keynote speaker is a scholar "". 'vv! - - . i M.I SANDRA STEINGRABER, PH.D. will be Sandra Steingraber who has recently published a book entitled Living Downstream. Her book examines the connection between the chemicals that are pumped out byindustries and cancer. Apparently the connection is a strong one. David Keller, a professor of Philosophy at UVSC and the coordinator of the conference, said that Steingraber's book has caused as much stir as Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, which revealed the detrimental nature of pesticides on human health. Silent Spring was one of the major forces moving the government to enact strict pesticide controls and studies. Steingraber's book may be desiined to do the same. Having Steingraber come to Utah alley is a shocking event," said Keller, "She is gaining a lot of nation, il attention." So much attention that Keller had to schedule Sieingraber two years in advance. "I heard an interview with her on NPR's 'All Things Considered.' She was so articulate and interesting that I called her and asked her to come to UVSC in 1 998 for the conference, but she was booked till 1999." said Keller. According to Keller, Steingraber is not only a consummate scientist, but a poet as well. In response to Steingraber's speech, Sam Rushforth, a professor of Biology at BYU, will present a paper on how chemical pollution affects Utah Valley, and what steps can be taken to use the information Steingraber has provided and make public policy to protect our health. To kick the conference off, five students from UVSC will present papers on the environment, toxins and- health. "It is a great way to actively integrate the students into the conference," said Keller, "They will have the spotlight on them for a while." mm nJ5L Students are finding enjoyable ways to file itielr taxes on April , A6 B1 B5 B6 lefuinansvvered. Cannon decries CllRISOPIIER 11 ENRICH SEN Exec, news Editor Congressman Chris Cannon spoke out against the U.S. led crisis against Yugoslavia at UVSC on March 31. He also addressed his experience as an impeachment manager. Cannqn said he wasn't convinced that the United Slates had an interest in sending troops to the war lorn region of Yugoslavia, calling the reasons outlined by Pres. Clinton as-less than compelling. Like many who have expressed concern about the NATO attacks. Cannon said he feared U.S. involvement in Yugoslavia may turn into the next Vietnam War. lie also said that attacks against Yugoslavia would be much different than Iraq was in Desert Storm because the Serbs are belter trained and have greater numbers of troops. Cannon added that the U.S. also had a greater technological over Iraq than they do compared to the Serbs. Cannon pointed out that each cruise missile launched by the United Slates costs $750,000. The idea of having American ground troops in Yugoslavia under the leadership of President Bill Clinton didn't sit well wilh -v;- Artwork courlesey of UVSC Athletic Department PLAYING THE FIELD: UVSC's baseball field, already regarded as one of the nicer playing fields in the SWAC, will be undergoing major revamping.

Record low support casual sex Kalpana Srinivasan AP News Reporter Wendy Shalit's new book is raising eyebrows for the shocking message it promotes: sexual modesty. But the 23-year-old writer, who lashes out against random college hookups and sexual encounters, may not be a generational anomaly. A comprehensive survey of college freshmen -- taken annually since 1966-finds record -low support for casual sex among the 1998 entering class. That's not the only area where young adults are taking decidedly different turns on issues than previous generations of college students. On law and order, abortion and r r f JO IIJSIDE Life!

"We ought to be worried when ihe president says he hopes and prays he doesn't need to send troops in." Cannon said. "That means he thinks he has the right to do that. I don't think he does." The difference between George Bush's actions against Iraq and Clinton's action against Yugoslavia, according to Clinton, is that Bush got Congress' approval before acting. In addition to voicing his lack of confidence in the President and the military attacks. Cannon also shared some of his thoughts on the impeachment proceedings against, ihe President. Cannon, who was one of the thirteen house impeachment managers, said that if the Senate had allowed live witnesses twelve Democrats, would surely have voted for removal. - even their goals in life, the differences are sometimes wide. "Their parents are the ones who sort of believed in this liberation through promiscuity and experience," said Shalit, whose book. "A Return to Modesty: Discovering the Lost Virtue," came out in January. But some kids today are "embracing the codes of conduct that their own parents rejected." Not a surprise to some college students, who agree that young adults are looking for a return to religious or more traditional moral. values after the legacy left by the decadent 1980s and the baby boomers.

Hinckley on Saturday condemned Serbian "atrocities" in Kosovo while urging the faith's members to be tolerant of others despite differences of. belief. "At this moment our hearts reach out to the brutalized people of Kosovo," Hinckley said in opening the church's 169th Annual General Conference in the Tabernacle on Temple Square. "Il is difficult for us to understand how those who claim to be Christians can act so barbarically to those of another faith." he said. The 88-ycar-old Hinckley, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 1995, did not mention the Serbs by name but added, "I am grateful that we are rushing humanitarian aid to the victims of these atrocities." Later, church officials said a shipment of 100 tons of clothing and blankets would be shipped Tuesday to Macedonia and distributed by Mercy Corps, a servative than their parents." says Chris Gillott, chairman of Pennsylvania State University's Young Americans for Freedom. Gillott says some of his peers go home and "come out of the conservative closet" to their families, igniting heated discussions on topics from Social Security to affirmative action. A few examples: -Only 40 percent of freshmen agree that it's OK for two people who like each other to have sex, even if they have only known each other a short while. That's down from 42 percent in 1 997. and an all-time high of 52 percent in 1987. according to the study by the Higher Education SEE SEX, CONTINUED ON PG.

Hinckley's blunt condemnation was unusual for the general conferences, held each year in April and October. Mormon there to leaders seldom use -sermons comment directly on current events. "We must never forget that we live in a world of great diversity." Hinckley said. "The people of the earth are all our Father's children, and are of many and varied religious persuasions." He urged the faith's more than 10 million members toward greater tolerance and respect for others. "We have differences of doctrine." he said. "This need not bring about animosity or any kind of holier-than-thou attitude." Wyatt hired to make money for athletics Stephen Carter Editor at Large Shay Wyatt has a brand spanking new cubicle in the McKay Events Center at Utah Valley State College. His position as director of development for athletics is as new as his office, but he fs no newcomer to the world of athletic administration. Though Wyatt has worked at UVSC only since the first of December, he has a mass of experience that makes him really good at what he does. During his time working for University of Utah. Wyatt. was a key player in starting construction on new baseball dia- monds. he also handled the remodeling of. the locker rooms. The Rice-Eccles Stadium was also one of Wyatt's babies. With such big fish to fry in Salt Lake City, one might wonder why Wyatt decided to come to UVSC. "I loved working al the U of U. but I was impressed by whai UVSC had to offer." said Wyatt. "there is a great foundation here that I can build on. When I saw this job advertized, it looked like a great opportunity, so I decide.!, hey. why not throw my name in ihe hat?" Exactly what does a director of development do? "My main job is to raise money for scholarships." said Wyalt. Raising money to advance the athletics program is no small job. Lots of scholarship money equal lots of top notch athletes to compete in UVSC's sporting events, and great sporting events equals larger attendance, and larger attendance SEE WYATT, CONTINUED ON PG.
