Volume 10 Number 19 OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE AT PROVOOREM February 19, 1982 Studentbody Secretary Chosen Selecting a new Studentbody Secretary proved to be a hard decision for those involved, because of the qualified candidates. After reviewing the applications, struggling through the interviews, and many sleepless nights, Kim Erickson was elected for the position, replacing Donna Black (now serving as Secretary). Kim is eighteen and a Freshman from Lehi Her hobbies include; all sports, especially swimming, since she's a lifeguard and swim teacher during the summer. Kim's major is Legal Secretary, which seems to be very beneficial for her new job. She was also nominated "Secretary of the Year" for 1980-81, by the National Chapter of Secretaries. When asked why she picked UTC for her College choice, she said, "Besides being the great place it is to get a good education, it's the friendly atmosphere and the close unity of the smaller school that I like" J vswwsw H.jJllllllililllW1 " ' H 1 I Kris Erickson will be the new Studentbody Secretary. Some Benefits To College Students Are Over Benefits aiding some 800,00 college students whose parents are either disabled, retired or are no longer living, are gradually being phased out, so says the Social Security Administration in Washington. Commissioner of the S.S.A. John Svahn stated that any student interested in applying for these benefits must do so prior to the May 1 college enrollment deadline. The abandonment of benefits has come as a result of last summer's vote by Congress to do away with the college student program by 1985. The vote also entailed that no new recipients would be accepted after May 1. As a result, many high school seniors are enrolling in college earlier than usual. As it turns out, a previous notice, mailed to some 100,000 high school seniors was entirely misleading in relation to the latter. The information led students to believe that they would be able to once again receive benefits. In order to clear up the situation, the S.S.A. will soon be mailing out flyers notifying students of the error. Expressing concern over the matter were both the Ways and Means Social Security subcommittee as well as the House Education and Labor subcommittee. Abolishing the student benefit program is expected to save an estimated $10 billion. f K M ILl -s ; s y w i s p-- wi ' i - :"" ""y1 IH ,ii:i:!:I:J fl I - i LA ' I f x I": Iff:: ' Students who enjoy watching TV in the Student Center, but don't enjoy the sun in their eyes, will be happy to know that blinds have been installed in the large picture windows behind the set.

Orrin Hatch Tells Deep Convictions In front of an audience of approximately 200, Senator Orrin Hatch put aside his political image and spoke from his heart at the institute building at Utah Technical College. Those who attended the forum at 10 a.m Tuesday morning probably were surprised to hear a U.S. Senator totally evade political issues and speak about his personal convictions as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His talk included several experiences he had while talking with influential people about his membership in the LDS Church, and the prejudice he experiences in the political system because of that membership. He gave several arguments for the existence of God, expressing his testimony and conviction on these matters.
