BLACKELY OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF An estimated 600 to 700 college students, some coming from as far away as Dixie College, gathered at Weber State University Friday morning to rally in opposition to the Board of Regents consideration of raising tuition anywhere from 10 to 25 percent. Every college and university in the state had students show up to let their disdain be heard, including BYU and Westminster which are private schools and are therefore not directly impacted by any decision the Board may make. The students chanted: "We buy books, pay for rent, we can't handle more than four percent!" And Jess Dalton, University of Utah's student-body president, voiced facts and numbers to the students on why they should not have to pay more than a four percent increase in tuition. To ask that tuition not be raised at all, he said, is futile. An increase in tuition is necessary, he continued, "but we, as students, can not afford to pay more than a four percent increase." Dalton then asked the students to show by hands how many worked at least part-time while attending school. At least 34 of the students raised their hands. "If you make $8 an hour and work 20 hours per week," Dalton asserted, "it would take you four-and-a-half months to pay your tuition and fees at the University of Utah. This does not take into account rent, children, a spouse, insurance, only tuition and fees." If there is another large tuition increase, he continued, it will make it near impossible for most students to graduate in four years. According to Dalton, over 50 percent of Utah students are eligible for federal financial aid. Said Dalton: "If you divide the amount of state appropriated, need-based financial aid by the number of students eligible for need-based aid and the average state funded support it comes out to be less than $100 per student," which is highly inadequate. After the rally dispersed, the Board of Regents met in one of WSU's ballrooms to discuss tuition increase. Many of the students who attended the rally attended the first half of the discussion. The Utah Council of Student-Body Presidents made clear to the board some of their initiatives and reasserted why students can't handle a tuition hike of more than 4 continued pg. 3 see "Rally" -;.

Philosophy forum on politics By DANIELLE WHiTE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF OREM Tree huggers and laisez-faire came together for a round of political and philosophical bantering Friday in SB 110. Representatives from the Green and Libertarian parties in Utah were given a relatively rare opportunity to discuss platforms with the UVSC Philosophy Forum club. Andrew Howard, a Utah Libertarian, Matt Wright, campus coordinator for the student Green Party in Utah, and Dennis Potter, the advisor for the student Green Party at UVSC, illustrated how there are additional options to the traditional Democratic and Republican views. "Being a Libertarian in Utah County is very difficult," said Andrew Howard, a Utah Libertarian who spoke at the forum. "We're the party of free agency. We believe in live and let live, association with whomever you want, do what you want. We're the only party that requires an oath to become a member of our party," he said. "This country's government is supposively a representative of Democracy but our elected officials are not. I used to be a Republican, but then I came to my senses." , .

Utah arenas allow alcohol ads, sales Utah sporting arenas accept policy change to allow advertising and selling of beer THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission has approved a policy change allowing arenas and stadiums to both advertise and sell beer. The facilities, including the Delta Center and Franklin-Covey Field in Salt Lake City, the E-Center in West Valley and Ogden's Lindquist Field, "have been very cooperative with us in trying to work through this issue," said ABC Chairman Nicholas Hales. Utah, like many other states, has a "Tied House" law aimed at preventing deals in which large brewers get taverns to carry only their brands of beer in exchange for paying the establishment to display the brewer's advertising.The law also has applied to arenas that sell both beer and advertising space. The new policy allows the arenas to continue selling advertising space to brewers and beer to patrons. "We've beaten this thing up and down for more than a year," said Delta Center spokesman Dennis Haslam, and come up with guidelines that would allow the arenas to sell both beer and advertising without running afoul of the law. To qualify for the exemption, the establishment would have to seat at least 2,000 people and its primary purpose would be something other than selling food and beverages. Other provisions would prevent arenas from selling just one brand of beer and make advertising space available fairly. Hales demanded a provision requiring the arenas to continued pg. 3 see "Beer" Net Spot THE HOTTEST SPOTS IN: NewxPolitks youthvote2000.orgnews cnn.comALlPOUTlCS msn.com mtv.comnayintrochoost orloose msnbc.comnewsdefault.asp Entertainment: utahvalleymall.com music.utah.edupagessche dules utahvalleymusic.com moviefone.com Music Online: emusic.com liquidaudio.com MP3.com Student helps: makingcollegecount.com edu.com fastweb.com firetalk.com lycos.com Sports: uvsc.eduatheltics majorleaguebaseball.com nflfans.com nhl.com . nfltalk.com espn.go.com nba.com wnba.com I320kfan.com Candidate claims good Mormons can't be Democrats THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SALT LAKE CITY (AP) A claim by a Republican state representative that good Mormons can't be Democrats has drawn criticism from his opponent and other church members.Bill Wright, who is Mormon and running for a state Senate seat, wrote in a recent column in The Payson Chronicle that faithful members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints cannot "in good conscience support the official tenets and substantiated agenda of the Democratic party." "The Republican platform itself is as sound and representative in Utah as an LDS family home evening manual," Wright wrote. Some Mormons complained that Wright's political vision didn't square with the church's efforts to bridge the divide between Democratic and Republican members."This has been really offensive to a lot of people," said Jed Mitchell, a Mormon and former Republican who switched parties to run as a Democrat against Wright for the Senate seat covering southern Utah County. "I am not left-wing," said Mitchell, vice president of the Bank of American Fork. In 1998, Elder Marlin K. Jensen, a member of the church's First Quorum of the Seventy, discounted the idea that it is impossible to be a Mormon Democrat. More recently, church President Gordon B. Hinckley continued pg. 3 see "Wright" Random Utah Laws Did you know: It is against the law to fish from horseback Can you believe: It is illegal to detonate any nuclear weapon.

IMA conludes Men's Week with Luau By CLARKE CALDWELL OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF The Institute Men's Association (IMA) of the LDS Orem Institute celebrated men's week last week.

A three-on-three basketball tournament was held at the Orem Institute building Wednesday night, drawing 46 teams for competition. Former BYU Ail-American and NBA basketball player Devin Durrant participated in the events. The main event concluding men's week was a men's choice Luau and Dance.
