Happy Valentine 's Day 7 mmAtUlvdm Volume 10 Number 19 UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE AT PROVOOREM - P.O. Box 1609, Provo, Utah 84603 February 14, 1983 Legislature to Omit UTC Enrollment The Board of Regents' recommended $460,000 school budget presented and passed by the Utah Legislators, will probably force Utah Technical College to begin policy of limited enrollment, according to UTC President Marvin Jay Higbee. The new policy would take effect September 1983, if no more funding is made available to the college. The new budget will now go before the Executive Appropriation Committee for a final decision, where a further cut in funds is still possible, according to President Higbee. The final figure will be announced by March 16. When questioned on the reduced state dollars available for UTC, Higbee responded, "We are stretched to the limit now. We have a projected enrollment of about 800 more students, and had hoped to hire 23 new faculty and 8 staff members. At this point, that number will have to be cut in half, at least." The President continued, "We will be doing the community a disservice by having to go to a limited enrollment. It is a choice we have never wanted to have to make, but the decision can not be put off much longer. It is a painful decision." P" PCI !pp.' PPPP J' i F - .! j - ;j There is a strong possibility of limited enrollment at Utah Technical College for 1983-84, because of action recently taken by the Utah State Legislature. Higbee had support at the Higher Education Joint Appropriations Committee meeting, where several legislators argued in favor of more money for UTC citing the value to the community which a technicalcommunity college represents. The legislative fiscal analyst's recommendation would have given more money to the college.

BITTERS No School Monday, Presidents Day, Feb. 21 By Shelly Carter No school Monday, February 21st!!! Hurray, we all shout! Wait, why a holiday? Monday is the day our country has set aside to honor our presidents. It also gives us another chance to reflect on our patriotic feelings. Some may laugh and joke, but in reality when was the last time you really thought about "What it means to be an American?" Some would say there is a complacent attitude among Americans today, a "cancerous patriotic decay." Our forefathers gave up a lot and fought hard to win these freedoms. It was their noblest dream. There are more .freedoms .to come. What are your dreams? How patriotic are you? To be active members in "Americanism" demands'we be informed, and intelligent, concerned about what is going on. A concerned citizen reads newspapers, listens to and reacts in constructive ways to build the government of his city, state, and nation.
