Lf By DANIELLE WHITE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF t's akin to beholding the Red Sea without having read Exodus. In addition to the ever-increasing number of four-year programs making headway into UVSC curriculum, the proposal to establish an LDS studies class (and eventually a possible major) as part of the religious studies program, has proved to be a unique challenge. Since its introduction in March, the integration of an LDS studies program has hit Utah Valley with the force a bullet train eliciting widespread concern amongst the educational and religious communities. "My first reaction was 'yeah!'" said Lisa Lambert, Adjunct Humanities and Philosophy faculty. "I'm excited and enthusiastic about the idea of a religious studies program that's not affiliated with a private, parochial school," she said. Writer-in-residence Eugene England has received a $25,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Center for the Study of Ethics, under the Humanities and Philosophy Department, to establish a full-fledged religious studies approach. "In Utah higher education, we sometimes we forget our own culture," said England. "A study of our culture can only make us better," he said. Utah, despite roots in religious freedom, tends to be obscure about the line between church and state, and is one of five states that does not offer a four-year religious degree. The proposal, which has yet to be fully outlined and acquire President Kerry D. Romesburg's approval, is hoped to provide a neutral atmosphere for the tutelage of culture, not church. "Before I decide anything, I want to see the proposal in front of me and make sure that the Mormon cultural studies program affiliated with a religious studies program is not going to offend the community," said Romesburg. "This won't go without some careful analysis. Again, I want to really look at the proposal for this and make sure that no one is going to be offended or feel attacked," he said. continued pg. 5 see "Religion" K, ;-' T:e IT.::; i v.. . s trssra;.; K :nikti ur,i: t director! tt'Sz.'

For new students, this is a time for introductions to a new environment, clubs, and friends. ASUVSC President Jared Finch and his fellow officers put together the program to encourgage students to get excited about UVSC. "The goal of UV Rage is to get new students excided about UVSC," said Finch. The games and entertainment allowed students to become familiar with UVSC through contests, club promotion tables, social interactions and free food. "We want students to get to know the different departments around cam-pass," Finch said. The various clubs set up their tables and booths around the quad, with representatives to assist new students who may have questions or interest in becoming involved.

Clothes make the pilot New dress code implemented with recent agreement between UVSC Aviation Science Department - and SkyWest Airlines By DEREK M. BROWN OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF With UVSC announcing the pilot training and hiring agreement with SkyWest Airlines, the Aviation Science Department, according to a memo posted on site at the Department, feels that "it has become necessary to implement a uniform for all students and instructors." The relationship between UVSC Aviation and SkyWest has blossomed and now with their recent teaming effort, they hope to raise the bar on public appearance and dress standards.Kelly Monson, a certified flight instructor at UVSC, believes "it will attract more dedicated students and weed out those that are not willing. We're gonna be dressed like this our whole careers. We'd better get used to it." As of last week, both instructors and students are required to wear UVSC collared white polos or white dress shirts with permanent-press black or dark blue pants. Jeans and shorts are not permitted, as well as cowboy boots, open-heeled shoes, and sandals. The memo also states that the instructors' and students' hair "must be styled in a professional look that reflects current business attire." "All of these things, as far as us upgrading, are not things that UVSC is saying the industry is saying this. The industry is who's going to hire our graduates," said Dr. Ron Smart, Chairman of Aviation Science at UVSC. In order to work for the best, one must look and be their best. Many say that who someone is internally is reflected externally.

(AP) American climbers held hostage for six days by Islamic militants in Kyrgyzstan say they escaped by pushing a guard off a cliff before making a harrowing 18-mile trek to freedom. "It is so hard to think of that now, but we were afraid we would not survive," Beth Rodden, 20, said Thursday. Rodden returned to California with fellow climber Tommy Caldwell of Estes Park, Colo., on Tuesday, four days after fleeing Uzbeki militants in Kyrgyzstan, a former Soviet republic. The other climbers, San Francisco Bay area residents John Dickey, 25, and Jason Smith, 22, who grew up in the Salt Lake City area, were expected to return Friday. The foursome went to Kyrgyzstan on an expedition sponsored by The North Face, a sports gear company.On Aug. 12, the day after Caldwell's 22nd birthday, the climbers were plotting routes on the steep walls of the Kara-su Valley when rebel soldiers began shooting. All four were taken hostage and put under guard. "They buried us under rocks, put brush on us, basically hid us from helicopters during the day and sometimes we moved at night," Caldwell said. The militant Forces, seeking to take control of the remote, rugged area where the borders of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan converge, were stepping up fighting efforts against government troops. In the first hours of captivity, the climbers heard their captors execute a fifth hostage, a government soldier. continued pg. 3 see "Climbers" YipYap A group of geese on the ground is a gaggle. iTT a group f of geese y Li in the air is a skein!

While these teams were summoned because of their years of training, experience, and expertise, a local team of 15 firefighters from the Utah state prison were also busily working to combat the flames. The Flame-in-go Strike team from Draper, Utah, is a state prison program in its 22nd year.
