According to Tom Hover, direc IVardlo Asked Barbra Wardle, Director of the Craft Center, has been asked to make a presentation at the National Art Education Association that will be held in New Orleans, La. in April. Wardle will be discussing the intervention of art history with the learning of artistic skills. This particular style of teaching in art is still in the developmental stages said Wardle and is being called Disciplined Based Art. The basic concept behind this style of teaching is to develop an artist's skills through the learning of the history behind the particular craft. Wardle said that students learn to differentiate between good and bad art and Panel Discusses Terrorism: Is by Beth Studer This is the first segment of a four part series on terrorism " '' 4, , 4,, i'-y Jr-4c- Lieutenant Colonel Shuler spoke about international terrorism in the of four part series at BYU.

Hover stated, "This way, the concerns of the two-year schools are met." The purposes of the association as stated in its Constitu to Speak at Art overall develop much more of a critical eye because they know better what to look for. This is the first time that any person from Tech has been asked to make a presentation at the association's meeting. Wardle will be joined by three other people in the valley from BYU who have also been asked to host a workshop at the conference. Wardle quoted students that Chorus to Sing The UTC Chorus will present a Brown Bag Concert in the Student Center Ballroom March 11, at 12 noon. The event promises to be one of the premiere events of the quarter. International terrorism has become a harsh reality of today's life. Americans have not - J first tion are to "improve and upgrade the two-year colleges of Utah" and improve the interrelations of those involved with the various colleges. It also "provides representation from the student level to make student needs known to education and legislative bodies." UTC is also a member of the Utah Intercollegiate Association, which includes colleges and universities. UIA meets as a model legislature and the top five bills passed by the mock session are lobbied during the legislative session. Previously, the desires of the four year schools have taken precedence. But now as Hover said, "If the two-years schools act as a united force, then we can really have an influence." UTC's studentbody president Bobby Thomas is also a member of the Association of Student-body Presidents. This organization includes the five junior colleges (UTC ProvoOrem, College of Eastern Utah, Snow Dixie, UTC Salt Lake City) and the four state universities which are Weber, Utah State, Southern Utah State and University of Utah. This gives the two year schools a slight Association have been conducted showing that a student will not only improve in hisher artistic skills, but that in addition they will begin a process of evaluation that will carry over into other areas besides art. Wardle helped Provo High School land a $100,000 grant from the Getty Foundation to study the new teaching approach. Provo High will act as the pilot for this new way of teaching art skills. Wardle is currently finishing a masters degree from BYU in Art Education as well as holding down the full-time job of Crafts Director. The new style of teaching is being used in the classes offered in the Crafts Center. been exempt. United States citizens have been the targets of a number of terrorist activities. Americans living and traveling abroad have been victimized by several indiscriminate attacks as hostages in Lebanon, in airline and ship hijackings and indiscriminate bombings. So far almost all of the violence has taken place outside the boundaries of the continental United States. What if this were to suddenly change? What are the prospects that this international menace will become a domestic problem in the United States? Recently, BYU's Conferences and Workshops Department, in cooperation with the National University Teleconference Network provided insights into these issues with a panel discussion from experts with a variety of perspectives on the problem. Lieutenant Colonel Shuler, Department Chairman of majority. According to Thomas, "Hopefully. ..it will increase the leverage of two-year schools if they unite together." The Utah Two-Year College Association meets every quarter. Their most recent conference was January 28-29 at Sundance. During this time, the group hosted a ski party for the two-year college students. The conference featured workshops given by faculty and administration members of the difference colleges. Next quarter the association will meet at Dixie College. Those involved with the junior college association include the executive council of the each school. UTC's advisor is Hover, who says because of the high turnover rate at two-year schools, an advisor is needed to maintain the continuity of the group. However, Hover said, "The students call the shots." The executive council of this consortium includes all the studentbody presidents. The group is currently planning to modify the association constitution. The Utah Two-Year College Association gives the two-year schools a chance to voice their concerns and unify to serve the needs of junior college students. The Cherry Pie Giveaway sponsored by the ASUTC pulled students in from the four quarters of the Orem campus. Photo by Paul Dolinar. The U.S. Next? Military Science at BYU provided the background information. Panelists included Egyptian Ambassador to the U.S., Earouf Sayed Abdul Ralouf El Reedy, British Liaison Officer, Col. John R. Hart, and Dr. Lauri Milroy from the Harvard University Center for Middle East Studies. One of the first problems encountered when discussing terrorism is there is no universally accepted definition of terrorism. What is perceived by some as a terrorist act is considered a liberating action by another group. For the purpose of this conference Shuler stated, "Terrorism is the premeditated, politically motivated act of violence perpetuated against noncombatant peoples or property. It is generally well-planned and well-rehearsed, and is intended for the observers rather than the victims."Shuler also informed the Survey Used by Task Force An administrative task force investigating the feasability of open computer labs invited Craig Rollins, a student council member, to sit in on its sessions to render student opinion. Rollins said that one of the first things he wanted to do was to conduct a survey to get students' feelings concerning the labs. He drafted a set of questions with the help of the student council and polled approximately 200 students on the Provo campus and 300 on the Orem campus. Rollins surveyed students from the electronics, physical science, general education, business, and trades departments.While the survey showed overwhelmingly that students would like to have easy access to computers, it also revealed that only 8 percent of students, at the most, wanted to pay the $1.00 per credit hour levy, while another mere 19 percent said they would be willing to pay ..50 cents per credit hour. The task force will need $219,000.00 to buy the 73 systems that are illustrated on Forum to Discuss There will be an open forum to discuss the proposed open computer labs Friday, February 28, at 10 a.m. in the Orem campus Ballroom. Members of the task a group that terrorist groups have no political or geographical boundaries and are very resistant to elimination. In the calendar year just ended, there were 22 Americans killed and 139 injured as a result of terrorist activities. Most of these victims were either government officials or military personnel. " These victims were just the bait to get the attention of a much larger audience," commented Shuler. He also told the group terrorist groups are derived from seven categories. They include nationalist groups such as the IRA and Marxist revolutionaries, anarchist groups, pathological groups, neo-Nazi groups and ideologicial mercenaries. The last group is composed of "crusaders, criminals and crazies." Shuler emphazised that most terrorist are crusaders, and it is important to realize every terrorist is a criminal. Many local law enforcement the "Student Open Access Computer Lab Implementation Schedule." Yearly operating costs are being estimated at $121,500, also from that same schedule. The task force has proposed that students foot the total $340,500 from a student fee increase. When Rollins' survey was submitted to the force, they were glad that many students would like to have access to computers, but realized that a large increase in fees would be a bitter pill to swallow. In a memorandum dated January 13, 1986 to Lucille Stoddard, Dean of Academics, Don Kartchner, task force leader, stated, "From here it seems to me a sensitive plan needs to be developed at the ad-minsitrative level on just how to deal with the studentbody to obtain their support as much as possible before the catalog and class schedule for Fall quarter is published." It should be noted that not all task force members will be in favor of the proposal without student support. Computer Labs force assigned to research the proposal will be there to hear student reaction and answer student's questions concerning the labs. 7 officers were in attendance. Shuler pointed out that the response of these men in the continental United States is to deter terrorism whenever possible through the intelligence networks and successful criminal investigation and prosecution. The "typical terrorist" was described being young, upper middle-class, educated, frustrated with society, and having low self-esteem. Furthermore, women are equally proficient or committed to the cause. It was the consensus of the panel that the terrorist actions were most likely to remain outside the boundaries of the United States at this time. "However, it is important to recognize that the possibility of attack within this country exists. For the moment, the terrorists goals are symbolic in nature symbols of private industry and democracy to gain the attention of the public," commented Hart.
