She concluded by stating that more competent women should be running for office, which created a favorable reaction from the audience. Dr. Jarman was followed by a panel, discussing the subject of "People in Religion". Members of the panel included Zetilla Lind - LDS; Sue Mote-Protestnat; Mildren Mc-Callister - Quaker; Donna Vering - Catholic; and Steve Newman representing the Jewish faith.

The fashion show was presented by UTC's Fashion Merchandising Department, under the direction of Rita Thomas. It featured fashions through history spotlighting authentic dresses from the midevil times to the 1970 s. "I felt the fashion show was very polished, and did much to enlighten me on the evolution of fashion and how history reflects itself in the style and cut," said Charlotte Long a UTC student. The fashion show also presented ideas on how to utilize classics from yesterday to suit today's look. Dr. Hugh Gillilan, next presented a speech entitled "The American Male Can He be Liberated? and Implications for male and female relationships. "Yes there can be male liberation as long as there is female liberalization. It is important for both to reach maximum self-actualization so they can realize their full potential," the distinguished looking man said. "To liberate a male, we need to eliminate such myths as work identity. One of these is that the male should be the primary breadwinners. Men should take part in sharing with the domestic responsibilities also," he said. He also brought out . that males should be given encouragement in expressing their feelings.
