J u u Volume 14 Number 10 THE OFFICIAL STUDENT NEWSPAPER OF THE UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE PRO VOOREM Box 1609, Provo, Utah 84603 Monday November 25, 1985 Ladly W0ves Sweep QA by Bruce Johnson For the second year in a row, UTC defeated Snow College to take the ICAC region title and secure a berth in the national championship tournament. But, unlike last year, where the Lady Wolves lost one game in tournament play, this year they went undefeated. The Lady Wolves beat Southern Idaho 15-8 and 15-13 and then put them away with 15-10 win in the third game. Ricks gave UTC their toughest match of the tournament when they made the Lady Wolves stretch it out to five games and in the end almost upset the UTC women. UTC won the first game from Ricks 16-14. In the second game Ricks was determined to win, and they refused to buckle in a close match, which Ricks won 11-15. Then Ricks, with a little momentum, took the third match 15-12. However, in the fourth match, UTC came out smoking and built a quick 12-4 lead. Ricks, trying desperately to Culprit Apprehended In UTC Theft Spree Timothy Brown was arraigned Friday November 15, for one second degree felony charge of unauthorized use of a credit card, and one third degree felony charge of burglary. One class A misdemeanor and 14 other charges of theft were dropped in a plea bargaining effort with the Utah County Attorney's office. Brown is being held in the Utah County jail without bail until his sentencing. The sentencing will formally be held the first week of December and will include a unique stipulation that he make restitution to those persons he stole from. Brown was a student at the Tech and admitted to UTC Campus Police authorities of having stolen multiple purses and valuables from the desks of UTC personnel. He was apprehended at his work place after using one of the stolen credit cards at Mervyns. At the hearing held Monday November 11, in the Eighth District Court, Orem, witnesses testified that they had seen Brown loitering in the areas and at the times when the items were taken. Brown searched for keys in two occasions to open the locked drawers where the employees kept their valuables. Janitors and other UTC personnel found the emptied wallets and purses in trash containers in rest rooms close to where the items were taken. Campus Police, Noel Lyman and Brian Walborn, investigated the string of thefts. It wasn't until Brown used one of the stolen cards that they were able to apprehend him. The clerk who waited on Brown identified him in the court room as the one to use the card. She remembered him because he told her that his mother had given him the card to buy clothes for an LDS upset the highflying Wolves, just couldn't make-up the points and UTC won 15-4. In the final match, UTC destroyed any possible chance Ricks had for an upset winning the first place championship 15-10. On Saturday night UTC closed the tournament out by beating Snow in three straight games. All three games were very close and in all three UTC came from behind to win 15-13, 17-15, and 15-13. The Wolverines dug big holes in the three games and had to struggle to climb out. They trailed 9-3 in the first game, 12-7 in the second, and 9-3 in the third. About the only time the Wolverines were ever ahead was near the end of the game. "See, I told you we were a comeback, team," said setter Terri Hinton. "We all knew we were going to win. Nobody panicked. We just played the way we had to to win." "Our offense was just a little out of sync," said Coach Lori Richards, who was nam ed Region 18 Coach of the - mission, but the clothes he bought were golf shorts, jockey shorts, and shoes, that weren't really appropriate for a mission. After being arrested by the authorities, Brown consented to have the police search his home, and the clothes that he purchased were discovered. Other missing items such as keys, credit cards, forms of identification, and money were all missing. Brown claimed to have destroyed the credit cards and ID, and also claims to have thrown away all the keys. Investigation officer Noel Lyman told the PRESS that they were aware of who was stealing the items, but that they didn't have any evidence to convict Brown. Lyman said, "Every theft was like a signature. He had the same pattern everytime." Brown faces a possible sentence from between one to fifteen years at the State Prison. Ironically the same day that he was apprehended, he was to begin serving a thirty day stint in the Utah County Jail for another theft crime. Quarter to by Tamara Deel Peterson Changing from a quarter system to one of semesters is a controversial issue at UTC. The Board of Regents has asked all Utah State Higher Education Institutions to submit a recommendation for or against such a change. There are many pros and cons on both sides of the issue. The primary reason UTC would be interested in changing to a semester program would be the better correlation with BYU. According to Doug Warner, head of the commit Year. "We kept getting behind, but it was great that we were able to come back." In addition to dominating the actual tournament, individual Wolverine players dominated the all-tourney team. Middle hitter Diane Campbell was named Most Valuable Player, while teammates Sue Lormin and Terri Hinton were selected to the all-tournament squad. Hinton could have easily shared MVP honors. When she wasn't scoring points, she was setting them up. "She had a great match," Richards said. "She's the spark plug that gets this team going." UTC women now go on to Miami and the Nationals. "Hopefully we can comeback with a national championship," Hinton said. "I think we have a chance." Richards, who guided her team to a seventh-place finish last year, has somewhat more modest goals. "I think we can finish in the top five," she said. "But still it would be nice to come back number one." Annette Taylor New Miss UTC 1986 Annette Taylor was named Photo by Doug Gardner Annette Taylor was named Miss UTC 1986 at the conclusion of the Miss UTC pageant held November 15. Taylor was a natural selection for the honor as she has had success with just about everything she has tried. Miss UTC is not the first pageant title that Taylor has held. She was first attendant Semester tee looking into the possible change, UTC is the second largest feeder of transfer students to BYU. A semester system would make it easier for these students to transfer and would enhance the transfer of UTC credits to the University. However, UTC is primarily a vocational college. Seventy-five percent of the students enrolled are in vocational programs. A semester system would increase the amount of time it takes for these students to graduate. The change would "onMey: ffff 'SMaon)aO I L - For the second year in a row UTC has claimed the ICAC championship and wil compete at nationals in Miami, Florida.

A quick glance at Taylor's biographical sketch shows that she has a talent for doing her best. At Timpview High School she was able to maintain a 3.9 GPA and was a member of the National Honor Society. Debate Rages On also increase tuition by an estimated 33 percent over what it costs now. Programs would lose some of their flexibility in scheduling and sequencing of courses. These are but a few arguments on both sides of the issue. Students need to decide which program better serves their interests. The pluses and minuses of each system have to be weighed carefully. In a forum Monday, November 25 at noon (in the Orem campus ballroom), any student will be able to discuss issues and ask questions of the committee 1 : 12 other contestants.

Faculty will also have a similar forum at 3 p.m. Later, a random sampling of students will be polled from the five major programs at UTC to ensure a fair measurement of student opinion. This student poll will be added to the faculty and staff polls, and combined to aid the committee on their recommendation. After each of the Utah state-operated institutions submit their proposals, the Board of Regents will decide whether to pursue the issue. This decision will affect all of the schools s 4 V "I'm excited to work with Annette. I know she will be an asset to the College and represent us well at the Miss Utah pageant in June." Richardson also added, "And she assured me that she will not be getting married this year." Last year both the queen and first attendant relinquished their titles because of marriage plans. When asked if she felt that the prestige of Miss UTC had been lessened by last year's winner and first attendant stepping down, Taylor responded that to her it was a great honor and that she didn't take it lightly. She said, "You have to think about winning and your responsibility to the crown." Taylor is even now preparing for the Miss Utah pageant. She said that she is learning a new piano piece for the talent portion of the upcoming competition and that already she is nervous about it. A real fan of parades, Taylor said, "I was in parades all summer and that is just about my favorite thing to do. People are so funny when they wave. Parades are real fun." Taylor was born in Provo, Utah, where she has lived most of her life. She is one of five children and enjoys skiing, dancing, and swimming in her spare time. equally- -an either or situation. Whatever the decision, it will directly affect both students and faculty. It is important for everyone to be aware of the pros and cons, so as to make an intelligent decision for UTC. Thanksgiving vacation will start Thursday and Friday, November 28 and 29. Over the vacation holiday all departments will be closed and the doors of the college will be locked tight.
