The property is located just south of the Utah Tech and will eventually have a convenient store situated on top of it. After developers cleared the land students not wanting to pay the increased parking decal price began parking there. Last week construction was scheduled to begin and developers called Dick Van Zomeran of the UTC Campus Police to give notice that violating vehicles would be towed. Van Zomeran had some flyers copied and distributed to the vehicles so that owners would have time to make other arrangements. Van Zomeran said that the day after the first dis'ribution of the flyers there was io compliance. The flyers were redistributed a second time and additionally the area was roped off. This time students complied with adjustments. "We had numerous people drop in and pick up a decal," said Van Zomeran, and he added that ticketing had also increased with some of the former free parkers trying to sneak onto campus lots. The future of the property is still unclear as to student housing. Funding problems have hampered developers that have sought to provide students with convenient, close housing. Cap & Gown Deadline The deadline is drawing near for cap and gown orders for graduation. Commencement exercises will be held at the Tech June 5. The last possible date that orders can be placed is Monday, April 21. Challenger Activity Vice President. When Campbell was con-1 fronted with voting results she hadn't considered the possi- ( bility of being separated from her party and had no definite plans about running as a in- dependent or filling the emp- f ty seat on the Challenger I Party. Jerry Valerio of the Challenger Party said that he wanted to speak with Campbell to see if her political views matched with Challenger's objectives and if so would invite Campbell to run with them. Paul Laing, who was running on the Fligh Party ticket for president, didn't know if he would seek an appointed position on the studentbody council next year. Laing currently holds a council post this year serving as the Public Relations person. Voting this year was at an extreme low. Tom Hover, Student Council Advisor, suggested that possibly low voter turnout was due to limited elected positions available. When election results were announced there were barely any students present to hear the outcome. One surprising statistic showed that only 60 students voted from the Provo campus.
