Scienc Week got off to a good start last Monday with 50 or more students going back 300-400 million years on a fossil hunt. II-ene Bunderson, life Science Instructor, led the excursion that turned out to be a total success. Bunderson showed students which rock formations to look in and what to look for in a short, ten minute lecture. That was all that was needed as the hunters set out with hammers and putty-knives in hand ready to reduce the hills of stone to dust in search of the fossils. Edwin Oertli, Life Science Instructor, was one of the first to make a major find. Just minutes after stepping off the bus, he cracked a large rock that revealed a large stem of a plant dating back millions of years.

Two thousand DECA students from around the nation participated in the event. UTC had 36 students competing, 24 of whom became national winners in 17 events, with a total of 56 awards. ' 'We're number one, no doubt about it," according to Wes Bitter, a DECA advisor. "We took four first place awards which, edged out everyone but Washington, who also took four first places, but that was from their whole state. The four first places Other students were equally successful. Fossils found included stems, leaves and some small insects. All of these fossils were of a compression sort, compressed in the sediments of an ancient lake shore. Tuesday morning, Oertli brought his hot air balloon to demonstrate the principles of boyancy. Tethered rides were given to all the people present in front of the Business Building. Later that morning President Higbee, Linda Walton and Steve Asay of the News and Public Information Center, and Lynn Fausett of the PRESS, were given a free floating ride over Utah Valley. After reaching the altitude of 10,500 feet, Oertli slowly sank the balloon back to Mother Earth set first hand instruction from Eileen Bunderson, Life Science Instructor.

Also introduced at the banquet were next year's ASUTC officers. The old officers officially handed over the reins to Utah Tech's student organization to the new officers who will act under a different student constitution. Catering for the event was by The Hollows, UTC's own catering department. In light of feeding so many people with inadequate equipment, The Hollows did a superb job as always. Entertainment for the evening was also provided for by "Ringside," a barbershop quartet. "People loved it and had a good time;" said Craig Rollins, dethroned Academics Vice President. President Higbee was presented with a wooden briefcase by the outgoing ASUTC officers. ASUTC officers felt that Higbee has been very supportive over and above what the officers have asked of him. Imprinted in the side of the briefcase is the official UTC logo. for Utah all came from UTC." "This is the third year consecutively that we've done better," says Bitters. "Last year we received 66 awards and were afraid this year we might not do as well. But the students really caught the spirit. This year's group was the best ever. What they lacked in talent they made up for in hard work." Bitters' enthusiasm for the DECA students at the Tech is hard to contain. "They are more mature, able to present themselves in a more impressive way, and they just stand out," claims Bitters. The awards are in the display case located in front of the Business Building. ting it down lightly on a dirt road in a farmer's field. Chase- man Russell Fausett arrived at the scene and the balloon was stored away in good time. Wednesday students went up to the Hansen Planetarium to see the unfolding of the universe. Two bus loads went up and evening viewers were able to include the annual CLIO Awards. Thursday, under one of the few clear skies in all of April and May, star gazers were drawn out to look at some of the planets and constelations visible from Earth. Friday was a Wasatch wild-flower excursion that wrapped up a week of activities nicely. Students were given practical applications of modern science in many differrent fields throughout the week.
