General conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints was heard by millions over the weekend it was translated into 49 different languages By DANIELLE WHITE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF It comes every six months, ever-constant and reliable as the dawning of fresh morning dew and just asawe-inspiring, surreal and new. The 171st General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints commenced last weekend in the new Conference Center, dedicated in October, admist a technicolor dream sea of picturesque colors and scenes. Familiar, they were, but members still left the building with bug eyes and gaping mouths. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and the prominent regal stature of Sherri L. Dew towering amongst the authorities in pleasant pink set the tranquil tone for the entire conference.Needless to say, that President Gordon B. Hinckley's dramatic enterance Sunday afternoon, added a light-hearted zeal a grand closure to a weekend of religious edification. The Church President jokingly announced he was waving a cane "to keep up with style" as many of the previous Continued pg. 3 See "Conference" Provo couple donates $ 1 .2 million for new Boy Scouts center in Orem ASSOCIATED PRESS OGDEN, Utah (AP) A $1.8 million Boy Scouts center will be built in Orem, with $1.2 million of the money coming from an as yet unidentified Provo couple.The donation was in honor of John L. Cross Sr., 82, and his deceased wife Violet. Cross served as both a volunteer and professional Scout for most of his adult life. The plans were announced Thursday night at a Scout gala at Ogden's Eccles Center. The new center will be headquarters for the Scouts' Utah National Parks Council, which serves 60,000 boys in 19 counties. The donors asked to remain anonymous for 90 days. They challenged 12 other donors to contribute $100,000 each, completing a package that will pay for construction plus an endowment to cover annual operating costs and maintenance of the new building, said Don Savage, endowment director for the council. "We've been working on this package for months, and most of the other donors have already been lined up," Savage said. Savage said the primary donors asked to go unnamed at this time to focus the spotlight on Crois. "In about 90 days when the matching gifts are complete, an announcement will be made making public the names of these donors as well as the 12 matching sjfc1 uunuis, ravage saiu. "This is a wonderfully gener ous gift that recognizes a man who has influenced thousands of boys' lives over the past several decades as a scoutmaster, Camp Maple Dell director and Scout leader," said state Sen. John Valentine, R-Orem, who is volunteer legal counsel for the Boy Scouts.

"The biggest thing t about this is that we ve needed a new building because of the size of the council. This is a blessing to everyone affiliated with the movement. We will all grow and develop as a result." The Orem center will be built on a three-acre site at 400 North and 1200 West. The building will replace the Scouts' 40-year-old service center in Provo. "The old building is inadequate, too small and frankly it's been an our local Scouting programs," Savage said. "Construction should start later this year and the building will open sometime in 2002."

The event, which was host to several sessions throughout that Thursday and Friday, saw quite a response. Students and teachers from across campus gathered to hear the keynote speakers and to find a little enlightenment in their day. "The faculty and departments have conferences all year long, which in my opinion, can be some of the coolest learning opportunities," club President Will Taylor said. "I wanted to do something like that for the students." The conference is a first for students, and the brainchild of the Philosophy Club, which meets weekly on campus in a forum to discuss philosophical issues. "It's nice to just be able to discuss your ideas with your peers without the agenda of a teacher or author," Taylor remarked. Instead of having professors or noted philosophers speak at their conference, they chose students instead. The topic they chose for their first conference was "Philosophy in the 21st century." "Because of technology and the way that culture is interweaving in the world right now, it brings up a lot of ethical and philosophical questions," Taylor explained. He used as an example the deforestation of Brazil. Though it is within Brazil's power to hack down every tree in their country, it is resulting in pollution and global warming that is causing flooding in Norway because of the melting icecaps. Should we step in and be the world police in such a situation? These are the kind of questions they hoped to address during the conference's six session, two day span. Thursday began with the speakers who were the winners of this year's Philosophy Department essay contest. The entrants were expected to write an essay attempting to answer the question "What is love?" Ruth Barney, Josh Erikson, and Matt Wright, who won $500, $250 and $250 respectively for their winning essays, presented them to an eager audience. For the next hour they were bombarded with questions from interested audience members. Friday features several students, from BYU, the University of Utah, and Westpoint, who each spoke on different topics, and were then given an opportunity to address questions. The response was extremely favorable for the club's first conference. Continued pg. 3 see "Club" Expect summer gas price hikes By LAURA CLAY OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Could gas prices shoot up to $3 a gallon this summer? The Energy Department's latest forecast says that the average nation-wide price will be within a few cents of $1.50 a gallon, if everything stays the same and there are no glitches in the system. What kind of glitches could send gas prices soaring into the S3 a gallon range? Such things as a shortage of crude oil, increased demand, or refinery problems might contribute to such a jump. Last year, gasoline demands actually dropped by one percent because of higher prices. However, this year's demand is up two percent because of v larger autos, SUVs, and trucks, according to Energy Department data not to mention the coming vacation season where driving may be cheaper than flying for some families. Add to these troubles the recent decision by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to cut production by 1 million barrels a day to keep the price of a single barrel around $30, and we could see $3 a gallon at our pumps. Other problems include oil refineries that are over 20 years old, needing new updated equipment to increase the relatively small 8.5 million barrels a day, or closing altogether because of lack of money to upgrade in order to meet higher air quality standards. Premcor, Inc. abandoned its Blue Island, Illinois facility rather than spend the $40 million need to upgrade, further hurting supplies to the midwest. In California, rolling electrical blackouts may force production cutbacks as well. How is the government looking to keep prices down? Temporarily relaxing air quality standards seems inevitable. Heavy increases in importing oil this past winter helped to off-set higher heating cost .which in turn kept gasoline prices lower. And, as always, importing more oil from foreign sources has kept prices from spiking up.
