The Symposium will be in the Ragan Theater Tuesday at 8:30 a.m., it will feature Warner P. Woodworth, professor of organizational leadership and strategy at Brigham Young University; Elder Marion D. Hanks, General Authority Emeritus for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; and Irene Fisher, founding director of the Lowell Bennion Community Service Center at the University of Utah, as speakers. Woodworth and Hanks also work in conjunction with Enterprise Mentors International, a poverty prevention program. EMI was established 10-years ago in Manilla, Philippines by Menlo F. Smith when he was serving as a mission president. He wanted to help lower-income countries combat unemployment by using entreprenural skills. "The program is based on sound principles," said Richard Oscarson, EMI president. "It isn't a governmental hand-out because that sort of system doesn't work. It creates a sense of entitlement. Instead, we give people the opportuni ty to work such as sewing, making baskets, or running a fruit stand, and help them be able to make a living to support their families," he said. According to Oscarson, the organization has been rapidly gaining momentum when several professors at Brigham Young University recruited volunteers to train foreign citizens in basic business skills. "We (EMI) fund raise so our program can be established in additional countries and that money goes directly to those foreign countries to help them become self-sufficient," Oscarson said. EMI now has facilities in Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Africa and Southeast Asia. Hanks was ministerial in the groundbreaking in Southeast Asia after he, along with wife Maxine, served in Hong Kong as anon-proselyting representative of the LDS Church. "Elder Marion D. Hanks devotes his life to serving others it is what he is all about, it is what makes him complete," Oscarson said. In addition to serving as EMI Honorary Chairman of the Board of Directors, Hanks has served in five US presidential appointments. He has also served as the president of the Salt Lake City Cancer Society, an advisory board member for the Boy Scouts of America, and Salt Lake City LDS Temple presidents. "Service is an indispensable part of a really good life," he said. "The way to be happy is to get your mind off of yourself and on to other people. I have always been inspired by my wonderful widowed mother who had to raise seven children but who still found the time to help others, and this was during the Depression," Hanks said. "But we never considered ourselves poor, we were to help those who were poor. My childhood is filled with memories of following my mother around as travelers, and the less fortunate came no matter what, they always seemed to find a way to my mom's humble door step and somehow we managed to have available resources," he said. Hanks was recruited to participate in the symposium by UVSC writer-in-residence Eugene England, who was a student in one of Hanks' LDS Institute of Religion classes at the University Utah years ago. "Eugene England has always been a fine gentlemen, and dedicated to serving others," Hanks said. England, who is coordinating the event, hopes to "initiate new forms of learning motivated by religious and ethical ideals, as well as continued pg. 1 see "Hanks" J V . j Elder Marion D. Hanks, Genera! Authority Emeritus for of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will be one of the the symposium tomorrow. C0URTIST PHOTO the Church speakers at University is studying how to use DNA to map ancestry PROVO, Utah (AP) A multi-million dollar study is hoping to use DNA to link people with no recorded family history to their ancestral homelands. Brigham Young University's privately funded "molecular genealogy" project aims to blend traditional genealogy with cutting-edge DNA technology.To do this, researchers at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints-owned university are in the process of taking blood samples from 100,000 volunteers. Along with those genetic fingerprints, volunteers are asked to provide researchers with a family tree stretching back at least four generations. The program, funded by philanthropists James Sorenson and Arizona's Ira Fulton, will take the DNA and match it with the family genealogies. The genetic markers in DNA are passed from generation to generation, so pairing the DNA data with the ancestral history will allow researchers to create a map placing certain genes in specific places and times. The information could help individuals with no recorded family history locate their ancestral homelands simply by taking a blood test. Researchers also hope to be able to track the migration of gene pools around the globe. "We hope this becomes the premier genetic genealogical reference database in the world," said project director Scott Woodward, a BYU microbiologist. "What we hope to do is to reconstruct ancient gene pools what did the genes look like at different places at various times in the past? Then we can go to an unknown individual and tell them what gene pool their genes came from." The study, expected to last four years, could cost tens of millions of dollars. So far, about $2.5 Commissioner encouraged to step down from political post By ASSOCIATED PRESS OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah County Commissioner David Gardner was arrested Wednesday night after Provo police say they found him driving while impaired. Gardner, 44, already faces trial Tuesday on a charge of disorderly conduct after allegedly manhandling and scolding a 9-year-old boy in a July 29 spat over a broken flashlight. Provo police Sgt. Gary Hodson said Gardner was booked into jail for a DUI, but had not officially been charged yet. "We were responding to another complaint that we were investigating and we found him to be driving impaired," Hodson said. Gardner was stopped at 5:58 p.m in downtown Provo. Police said he did not resist arrest. Hodson said another matter Gardner may have been involved in was under investigation but refused to specify. The commissioner's first arrest for DUI was in March 1999. At the time, he told law officials he had accepted an alcoholic drink from a hitchhiker without knowing what was in the cup. He later pleaded no contest to DUI and entered into a nine-month court agreement that required him to abstain from alcohol and get professional counseling. Hodson said Gardner faced stiffer penalties and fines for his second DUI. If convicted on the disorderly charge, he could be sentenced to 6 months in jail and fined $1,850 for violating the court agreement he entered into after being charged with drunken driving. Gardner's second term as county commissioner is up in 2002. He is a marriage andfamily-therapist. UVSC President Romesburg and Student Government members Gavin Payne and John Shoemaker officiate at the gubernatorial debates Wednesday. The next political debates at UVSC will be October 30 from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m., where congressional candidates Donald Dunn, Michael J.

College students throw rave party at Olympic venue By ASSOCIATED PRESS OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIDWAY, Utah (AP) Security has been tightened at the cross-country skiing venue for the 2002 Olympics after dozens of college students broke into a new building and threw a rave party. Deputy Sheriff Wayne Winterton was passing through the normally quiet residential area around 1 a.m on Friday, Sept. 22, when blaring music caught his attention. In his report, Winterton said he saw at least 15-20 cars driving at high speed around the cross-country skiing oval. The students fled when Winterton called for help. Police stopped as many trespassers as they could but failed to catch the ringleaders. No arrests were made. Investigators said nearly 100 students from Brigham Young University and Utah Valley State College's Orem campus were at the rave. Damage to the $1.7 million building was surprisingly limited: A doorknob was broken and the carpets will require about $2,000 to $2,500 to clean. The event organizers apparently charged $3 a head for admission and even hired disc jockeys to provide music. "It was very creative and somewhat humorous in hindsight, although that night it wasn't," said Kevin Jardine, the venue's construction manager. Jatdine said the partygoers broke into the newly constructed venue called Soldier Hollow at "its most vulnerable," only days before dead bolts were installed and just weeks before the Salt Lake Organizing Committee planned to post around-the-clock residents at the approximately 200-acre site. The students cut the locks on the area's gates as well as the padlock on the building's front door. Wasatch County Olympic Coordinator Bob Mathis said security a month later still is not what it should be. "They dodged a bullet," said Mathis, noting that the county looks to the state and the organizing committee to secure the site because Soldier Hollow is a joint SLOC-state venture. Jardine said a groundskeeper will take up residence this weekend and that permanent locks have been installed on the main building. Posting a full-time guard is doubtful, however. "It gets back to budgetary issues," Jardine said.
