Sharlene Wells, Miss America Utah's Sharlene Wells, the current Miss America, held firm on answers in regard to questions about values and religion during a 30-minute press conference held at the Sheraton Hotel in Salt Lake City last Thursday afternoon, October 25th. Reporters from nearly every media in the state hurled questions at the "squeaky clean" winner, as Miss Wells encouraged the entourage of "tough questions". Replying to the question, if the Miss America Pageant had been hurt by the Vanessa Williams scandal, Miss Wells answered, "No, not at all. In fact, the ratings for the pageant have increased." Rising to the challenge, Miss America continues, "I wanted to work even harder to prove that that (scandal) was not the norm." Though "the scandal" obviously draws more interrogation to the present Miss America, Miss Wells lends support to Vanessa Williams. "She was a very exceptional Miss America. She made a Financial Aids Solves By Jay Deuel For those who have recently experienced the Finanacial Aids hassles, good news has arrived. The regular hours have been re-established; 8 am 5 pm, Mon.,Tues.,Thurs.,Fri., and 10 am 5 pm on Wednesday. According to Shelley Nor-thcutt. Assistant Director of Financial Aids, the temporary problems that have recently been experienced were due to a few factors. First, one of two computers went down and has just been put back into operation. Secondly, a new staff was in the process of being trained, also, many students waited until the last minute to turn in forms, rather than spreading them out as in years past. Michael Johnson, Director, explained that part of the problems experienced were due to consequences that resulted from the following statistics: l$ol the grant forms processed to date came in after the set deadline. Of these forms, The Official Student 'r ' l , visits with the press Photos mistake and she realizes it." "I will not forego my values because of the role.", demanded the pageant queen. "I am what I am because of what I believe in." The strong Latter-day Saint Mormon continues to attend church every Sunday even though her rigid touring schedule has eliminated time for one of her favorite past-times, racquetball. What has been the hardest thing for Miss Wells to give up? "Giving up my schedule to someone else has been hard. It's very demanding, but it's very fulfilling." Sharlene Wells two favorite cities, outside of Salt Lake, has been Boston and Chicago. Boston because of it's "charm and sense of class" and Chicago because it reminds Sharlene of Buenos Aires. Miss Wells spent most of her childhood in South America. While answering questions about the recent over-throw of the "communistic" Chilean Government, Miss Wells responded, "We don't want communism anytime.

As a side note, he remarked that this looks very bad and is a roadblock in getting more financial aid for students from Congress. As a result, Financial Aids has been required to check out more information than in the past. As a consequence, a tremendous backlog occurred in the office which caused the window hours to decrease. This action was designed to give the staff time to catch up on the pile of work. An expression of appreciation has been given to all departments for their patience and support during this time of backlog, which has finally passed. Financial Aids asks that the word be spread that they are back on their regular schedule.

But in replying to the question of the current rebels in South America, Miss Wells answered, "We never justify violence." The continual battle of questions suggested to Miss America that she had an answer to everything. The Wells' wit showed as she jokingly corrected the press audience, "Now that I'm Miss America I have the answers for everything." Sharlene Wells insists that she is always having fun, "It's not worth it unless I am having fun." The stainless American model said, "It was hard getting used to the limelight." Wells attempted to explain her role at cocktail parties, "I enjoy meeting people except at cocktail parties when everybody is drunk. I think, 'oh no, I'm in the wrong place." Finishing the press briefing, Miss Wells finalized, "Committment to my values, is to me, the basis of my character."
