A nPrfTE . - A Volume 11 Number 14 The Official Student Newspaper of Utah Technical College at Provo'Orem, P.O. Box 1609, Provo, Utah 84603 Friday, Janus y 13, 1984 ii nr" V UTC Hopes For More Funding From Legislature j i 4 w ,1 The Utah State Legislature has once again convened to discuss the hot topic of budget, and how much money should be allotted to education. Utah Technical College administrators are closely watching this session, hoping to get the necessary funding the school didn't get last year. In an unprecedented move, Governor Scott Matheson, spent a half hour on primetime television telling the Utah taxpayers that their dollars are badly needed for education. The Governor is asking for a rasie in taxes that would cost the average taxpayer about $100. With the tremendous birth rate in Utah, and the over crowded classrooms in the schools, Matheson stressed that education has to be a top priority for Utah families. He noted that with this priority also comes a cost, and the Utah citizens have not been paying the costs. Utah has the unfavorable reputation of allowing classrooms to become overcrowded. Matheson said this problem must be alleviated. His proposal not only will tax citizens but also corporations more heavily. Taxes to Utah businesses are the lowest in the country. Matheson said he will not damage the favorable business climate, but will ask the business community to pay more taxes to help with education. Utah Technial College has had serious funding problems in the past. President J. Marvin Higbee is hoping to convince the legislature to allott more funds to the school. This year more than 2,000 students have been turned away at UTC because of overcrowding. School administrators say a major goal for the college has always been to keep its doors open to students. "We are turning away our local residents and making them pay the high costs of housing, travel, and food when they have to travel to Snow or Dixie and can't live at home," nne administrator said. One of Higbee's objectives is the same as Matheson's-that of paying facully a salary closer in line with the market value. UTC faculty are paid significantly less than faculty across the United States, and about 15 percent less than other faculty in the state. Higbee and other school officials will be attending numerous sessions of the legislature to let the congress know the needs of the school. They encourage students to call or write to their senators and representatives and let them know their feelings about funding for education. The congress persons in this area are: LeRay McAllister, Eldon Money, Paul Rogers, and Karl Snow as senators. Representatives are: Carl D. Anderson, Richard Lee Ellert-son, Neal B. Evans, Willard H. Gardner, Joseph A. Jenkins, Lavinia L. Kanig, Donald R. LeBaron, Richard L. Maxfield, James R. Moss, W. Robert Phelps, & Don R. Strong. mi&v ' MS .; ft ss,.. ST f ? After a plea from Utah Governor Scott Matheson, and area citizens, legislators are deciding the destiny of Utah's tax dollars and Utah's educational system. r - i 1 ? i 'is;- ' tr ' ss""" r r - ' f ' ; . i Overcrowded classrooms is one of the major reasons UTC officials are asking for relief from the legislature. President Higbee has been lobbying the legislators on the college's need more funding. Students Enjoy Free Ski Day By Joy Sandstrom Free skiing! How could anyone pass it up? From the evidence of the crowded parking lot, long lift lines and -rodr. runny noses, not very m.-ny UTC students let the opportunity go by, to enjoy an evening of skiing at Park West. The snow was great and the runs were simple. Beginner to expert skied down the slopes. Even a few cross country skiers telemarked their way down the hill. A few collisions and some excellent wipeouts completed the picture. The last chair was loaded at 9:15. The skiing was followed by a dance at the lodge. The dance brought even more people to the resort. The room was warm and the music was good. The music played until midnight and the party was termed a success by studentbody president Gordon Wilson who estimated UTC attendance at 150 students. Students from Dixie and Snow Colleges also joined in the activities. Shuttle Bus Will Continue A shuttle bus will continue to run between the Orem and Provo Campuses. The bus will hold approximately 20 students and runs every hour. Students can ride for a set fee or buy a 10 ride ticket at a savings of fifty cents. The following is the schedule and rates: BUS FARE 1 Trip 50 e. Round Trip $100 10 Rides for S4.50 Leave Provo 7:30 a.m. 8:30 9:30 10:40 11:40 12:40 p.m. 1:40 2:05 3:05 Leave Orem 7:40 a.m. 8:40 9:40 11:05 12:05 p.m. 12:55 1:55 2:15 2:55 Lineman Receive Special Training In 'Ranger' Truck New sitae Payson On Menu For Utah Elks DeVries Gets Second Chance Dr. Willain DeVries said to- day he and other members of I the artificial heart implant team felt they were "shackled" by a 113-month delay between the first operation and approval by I a university ooara tor a seconu. "That was a lone delay. It I was harmful to the team to wait I that long. We felt we were Ishackled, DeVries said. The University of Utah s Institutional Review Board Ivoted 10-2 Tuesday to approve I a set of guidlines - called a protocol - and unanimously approved a consent form for a second implant. The panel rejected a bid of DeVries to win approval for those documents on Dec. 12. "There were a total of 12 word changes (in the revised guidelines) between Dec. 1 2 and Jan. 10," DeVries said. The surgeon said that some of those changes amounted to nothing more than corrections in grammer and fixing typographical errors. After the Dec. 12 rejection, DeVries and artificial heart developer. Dr. Robert Jarvik were ordered to work with IRB Chairman Dr. John Basso and an IRB sub-committee to revise the guidlines proposed for the second operation. By Margaret Woodis Payson fields have become the home of several hundred elk this winter and farmers are charging that the Division of Wildlife resources are ignoring the hungry animals. "There are as many as 150 to 200 head of elk just above the Payson City Race Track and I haven't seen one Fish and Game guy over here yet. If I had cattle in the condition those elk are in I'd be ashamed of myself - and someone would probably turn me in," said Howard Riley, an orchardist and rancher from Payson. Officials of the Springville office of the Division of Wildlife Resources could not be reached, but a secretary said that officers were in Payson evaluating the situation. R.E. Mower, a rancher in the Spring Lake area south of Payson said, "They called me real late last night and wondered where a good place wnnld he for them to start feeding them over here. We've pot. a lot of elk over here. I d say about 150 of them are raising cane with the orchards. Another large herd of elk are wintering in ranchers' fields and orchards just east of Payson in what is known as "t he eoose-nests." Brian Allred, Son of an orchard owner in the area said, "We've got a few elk and a few deer. We never had this problem before the city of Elk Ridge was built. The city has taken their winter range before it was up there they would just stay up in those hay fields all winter." According to a statement released by the Uinta National Fnrpst. and the division of Wildlife Resources, "The Uinta National forest and Central Region of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources have long been aware of the problem of decreasing amount of winter range available for big game." Utah Technical College at ProvoOrem students in lineman training recently received some special on-the-job training in two projects at the Pueblo, Colorado Army Depot and in Manti. Instructors Carl Crawford and Blaine Roberts supervised 20 students in Manti for a four day project using the College's "High Ranger" truck. "A project worth $60,000 was completed by our students for approximately $1,000," Crawford said. "This helped the client as well as the student involved in the project." The Colorado project, replacing a six transformer bank, required four students working ten, ten-hour days. Again, the "High Ranger" truck was used and $5,000 was earned by the students. "We feel it very important to give students as much real on-the-job experience as possible," Crawford added. "This provides them with the experience that makes them a valuable employee." Students in the lineman training program received some special OJT recently in both Utah and Colorado, rhoto by Kim Paramore.
