TRADEWIND ; 3 VOLUME 1, NUMBER 4 Students 4. Bv Da Have you ever imagined yourself in the State Capitol Building. . . sitting in the senate chambers or maybe a member of the House of Representatives? It can happen: last year it did.'l Appointed students from every College and University in Utah (acting as senators and representatives) met in Salt Lake at the Capitol Building to make final preparations for a student Legislative Body. This Legislative Body of students is now called the Utah Intercollegiate Assembly.The UIA (as it is known by) is a collegiate Legislature, modeled after the Utah State Legislature. It has two chambers, a House of Representatives and a Senate. The House of Representatives has its members alloted by the relative enrollment of the member institutions, and members to the Senate being alloted equally among attending schools. NOT A MOCK LEG ISLATURE-The UIA is not a mock Legislature, but a significant group of students who wish to be heard and understood. It is significant because at this time of disillusionment with American Politics, the UIA is a constructive step toward better responsive government.The UIA is for building and tearing down pieces of legislation. It is for students who wish to have an active role in the decisions made about their respective schools and in the decisions made about our society.The UIA was formed by the Utah Student Body President's council in the fall of 1973, and is the first of such student organizations in Utah, with a potential impact restricted by nothing. ACHIEVEMENT AND PARTICIPATION The goals the UIA wishes to accomplish are threefold. First, and most important, the achieve- CAIIYON ROAD STUDENTS have been asked to park parking lots only.

Second, to provide the student participating with a realization of the process, in particular the problems that arise in reaching a concensus or even a majority, on highly controversial issues. Third, and finally, to provide for a method of exchanging ideas between all the institutions oi higher education in the state. Sound good? You had better believe it!!! RECOGNIZED SUPPORTED The UIA has already been recognized and given support. The Fortieth Legislature of the State of Utah passed a joint resolution to extend support and cooperation to the members of the UIA and by recognizing and accepting student input to the Legislative process. During the fall of 1973, the UIA considered a total of thirty-two resolutions. These resolutions were of such topics as: Age of Majority, Student Representation on the State Board of Regents, Out of State Student Residency and voting, Student Housing, Exchange of College Credits, Capitol Punishment, Sales Tax Exemptions on Text Books, Building Appror-iations for the New UTCP Campus, and many others.

TECHNICAL COLLEGE OF PROVO ' OREM CITIZENS and UTC officials vote "yes" to road closure proposal. Sandhill road closure Hearing successful The decision was tocloseSand-hil Road after Orem City Councilmen heard the opinions, suggestions, and desires of private citizens and UTC officials Tuesday night. Nearly thirty people attended the hearing in the Council chambers, and several of those present expressed their opinions. Orem citizens were concerned that their access to the freeway would be cut off and no alternate route provided. One citizen wanted an alternate route which 'wasn't going to send them halfway around the world and still not get them anywhere." Orem city councilmen pointed out that they would like to support UTC in their new move to Orem, but they are also concerned with the time and safety of the citizens in the area around Sandhill Road. The discussion turned to funding the new route, if Sandhill Road were closed. One citizen recommended that 'The road Lot 63 STUDENT PARKING WEST OF BYU STADIUM & NORTH OF RIVIERA APTS. vl 0. if. (Sandhill) should not be closed until actual construction of anew route is underway." Several citizens thought that UTC should give up funds of one of their three new buildings to build the new route. UTC officials explained, "The money can only be spent for those projects already approved by the state building board." State Building Board members also explained how unfeasiable it would be to give up the funds. He said, "We need to commit the money and sign the contracts for these three new buildings by January 1." "Money for the new route will have to come from future appropriations," officials went on to explain. "Hopefully, the January Legislative session will appropriate us the necessary funds to continue the project." Orem City Mayor. James F. Students create problems "If you are parking your car in a prohibited parking area, it may be towed away," warned Kay R. Nielsen, security officer for Utah Technical College.

'V J Mangum, took poll of those in attendance concerning various methods of proceedure. Most of those attending, indicated their approval of the road closure, if an alternate road were built as soon as possible. Mayor Mangum then read a letter from the UTC Advisory Board which suggested the vote be to close the road, as it "Would be a help to UTC and a benefit to Orem City and Utah County." After a short discussion by councilmen, the recommendation on the floor was: !. Close Sandhill Road from 1000 South to 1200 South. 2. Enter in to an agreement with UTC that funds for the new road be the first consideration when more funds are available. 3. Keep an open door policy. The resolution was seconded and passed unanimously. Medical Center. The Medical Center said that they would def-inetly tow away any students car at owners expense," reported Nielsen. "Students could save themselves some time and trouble if they would buy themselves a parking decal, and park in the designated student parking lots," stated Nielsen. There is ample parking space in lot 63 for those students who have a tough time finding a place to park he noted. Lot 63 is located just West of BYU stadium. Parking decals may be purchased for $1 at UTC's Traffic Office.
