UTC Club's By Allen Birch Recently the Student Center Ballroom was filled with trees dressed in the diverse flavors of 18 different clubs. The Ballroom received an early, festive look of Christmas. These trees have been decorated by many of the student clubs UTC: The "Inter-Club Council, under the direction of Esther Avellino, chose to use this year's festival of trees as a project of students for students. The traditional $250 award Editor Page 2 TRADEWINDS I; f I O 1 THE Praises UTC Institutional Council, spoke to the group. "I hope that we would all understand that buildings are for people," insisted Kerr. Defending President Higbee and Sorenson, due to the critics that they have met, Kerr demanded, "Education must not only prepare people to work, but to live." Kerr continued to define the future mission of the expansions, "I think we should be a concerned about the quality of student life as well as academics." Representing the Utah State Board of Regents was Kem Gardner. Gardner explained how he answered President Higbee's invitation to speak at the meeting, "I asked President Higbee if it was safe for a Democrat to come into Utah Valley. And he said that I had been put on the endangered species list and it was safe." Gardner, a strong supporter of athletic activities, emphasized the importance of these buildings, "I believe in athletic programs. I believe they help build a loyalty and affection for a college." Gardner continued to voice his enthusiam, "I want to be sitting on the front row when you (basketball team) beat Ricks College this year." In an effort to support the controversial up-coming name change, Gardner aimed to put the arguments to rest. "We intend to strengthen vocational offerings." Gardner continued, "Our research demonstrates- Service from the winning tree is going towards a service-oriented cause. The money will be distributed, as will the trees to student heads of household attending UTC. The judging was completed Monday evening by a panel consisting of Leland Gannet, the executive assistant to the Provo mayor, Connie Kearney, Private First Class Brad Nills, and Orem's Mayor pro tern Glen Zimmerman.

"Let me assure you that we will maintain adequate funding. Vocational education will not be compromised or de-emphasized." Gardner furthered the community college definition. As Gardner finished his speech, he rallied the students to the cause by noting, "I believe our goals should be to serve students." The Utah Valley Symphony, conducted by Ralph Laycock, played Academic Festival overture by Brahms. UTC Studentbody President Jay Deuel, continued to acknowledge the importance of extra-curricular activities, "We, as college students, are concerned with an extra education." 'The general philosophy of the world is to expect government to build and provide the funding for such buildings." announced President Gordon B. Hinckley. He continued, "Frankly, I am very proud of you. I commend you on the spirit of self-reliance in getting these buildings." President Hinckley built his talk on the "self-reliance" theory as he continued to compliment the UTC student-body for providing the funds for the expansions. Understanding that the structures were costly, Hinckley emphasized the unity that such a project creates, "I hope that rather than hide these costs, they will be "Santa's Christmas Nap" was ViTecEi Hosis Student The ViTech Film Association (ViTech Productions), of UTC ,will be hosting its first seminar on film arts December 11, at 3:00 p.m. on the Orem Campus, Room BU 126.
