m Volume 14 Number 31 UTC Men'sTeam Wins Conference by Dana Strong The final week of the regular season may not have gone as expected but the end result was as much as the Wolverines could have hoped for. After losing the final two games of the season at Dixie College, 5-0 and 8-0, UTC found itself in a three way tie for first place. But by virtue of the tiebreaker, a better won-loss record against the other two teams, the Wolverines emerged as champions of the ICAC. It was UTC's seventh conference crown in the last 11 years and advanced them to the regional tournament. UTC opened play at the tournament last Friday against North Idaho College. Snow College defeated the College of Eastern Utah 4-3 in a special playoff and represented the ICAC as the second seed. The Wolverines finished the regular season 17-17 overall and with a 10-6 conference record. The conference crown was Coach Dave Nelson's third consecutive. The Wolverines rode a high-powered offense, consistent pitching and a steady defense to the championship. UTC will need to continue to excel in these areas to overcome the stiff competition at regionals. Against Dixie, though, UTC couldn't get any of the facets of their game going. In the two games, they could manage L. Larry Marsing, President of this year's faculty senate, will turn over the reins to Dennis Farn-sworth, President Elect, soon.

"All activities are open to the general public, students, faculty and staff," Tayler said. "Transportation is provided and there will be no charge for any activity. Reservations must be made, however, through the General Education office on the Orem campus."Tayler said that the science program at the College is continually expanding and will include a pre-Engineering program, two-year life science program and an upgrading of the physical science offerings.

The new constitution will be voted on sometime in October and will be either adopted or discarded in favor of the old one. Many UTC students are not familiar with way decisions are made and issues are discussed among faculty and administrators at UTC. F. Dennis Farnsworth, Jr. President Elect of the new senate, explained, "Higher education implements the principle of shared governance. Institutions are governed not just by governance boards and the President of the institution. In higher education, governance is shared by both the faculty and the administration." Last year the faculty faced several issues and indicated the need to have a larger voice in affairs. They needed to know what was facing them down the road and what possible preparation they needed to make for issues and decisions affecting their jobs. In previous years, under the , v..

UTC entered the contests averaging nearly seven and a half runs a game but couldn't score against the Rebel pitching. Paul Cluff led the way with a double in each contest but most of the Wolverine hits were right at the Rebel defenders. Dixie scored two runs in the first inning of the first contest and four runs in the first inning of the second contest to virtually ensure the victories. "It was one of those days when everything seemed to go wrong," said Nelson. "When we hit the ball hard, it was right at someone. We hit into several double-plays to kill rallies, and we just couldn't seem to put anything together to put some runs on the board." Despite the losses, UTC undoubtedly carried a lot of confidence into the regional tournament. The Wolverines have proven they can beat the powerhouse College of Southern Idaho, who hosted the tournament and stood as the pre-tournament favorite. To do so, the Wolverines needed strong pitching performances from Quinn Marsh and Mark Gorringe, who have been the UTC aces all year.

The issues each body faced did not seem to align in importance with the other body. The administration members did not attend senate meetings regularly before the new senate was implemented. Some faculty members of the senate felt that the administration did not listen to them or understand their needs. Farnsworth said, "Faculty want and need a meaningful role in the governance of Utah Technical College of ProvoOrem."The senate decided in 1984 to re-organize. Therefore, they formed a by-laws committee to research and suggest changes. The initial structural change was to move from a faculty senate to an institutional senate. The institutional senate would have been comprised of classified employees and professional support staff as well as faculty. Continued on paqe 4 Concern Voiced Over Provo Cafeteria by Lynn D. Fausett The planned summer moving of several Provo campus departments to the new Administration Building on the Orem campus has many Provo students wondering what will become of Food Services at Provo. In response to several cutbacks made at Provo in Food Services, electrical automation students have circulated a petition listing over 200 names asking that the cafeteria remain open for those who stay. Kirt Moyes, electrical automation student, said, "We should have the same privileges Orem students have." Ken Mathews, Food Services Director, explained that the cutbacks made at Provo were in response to profit losses and as yet nothing definite has been decided concerning the closure of the Provo cafeteria. Concerning closing the cafeteria, Mathews said, "That will be President Higbee's decision." Mathews will meet with the administration this week to discuss the future of Provo Food Services. In particular Mathews mentioned that overhead costs of the Provo facility were enormous and have almost doubled from the 1984-85 year. He emphasized that Food Services is a self supported service and does not receive student fees. "We must at least break even to exist," he said. Further commenting on the Peak hour in the Provo ning hours, after that customers decrease hampering profitability.

Barricades will be up preventing motorists from parking in the lot until drainage, lighting and pavement are completed sometime this summer. be part of Science Week Monday, May 12, 1986 Fu&ure cutbacks already enacted at the Provo cafeteria, Mathews said, "It is just not profitable to run, but I can see where those are coming from." Moyes in particular mentioned that students polled on the Provo campus did not want to have a vending machine cafeteria. Mathews mentioned several options that decision makers have. They include turning over Provo Food Services to the HotelMotel Restaurant Management Department or renovating the kitchen to provide fast food to eliminate high overhead costs. "I think it is a question of who will provide services and what those services will be," said Mathews. The Provo cafeteria is most heavily impacted during a breakfast crowd rush that ends around 11:00 every morning. The cafeteria area is not seeing the use to justify the kitchen area and equipment. Square foot for square foot, the Provo kitchen is larger than the Orem kitchen and has some specialized ovens that could be put to better use at Orem. With renovation plans scheduled for the Orem kitchen, Mathews plans on moving some of this equipment to Orem. Definite changes will take place with Provo Food Services, but the nature of those changes are still unclear. Eventually all Utah Tech departments will be located at Orem. Until that consolidation is complete however, there will be unique situations such as this arising. it cafeteria is during the mor leading to a four-year degree in mechanical, civil, electrical, chemical or industrial engineering. "Demand is quite high for engineers with a starting salary of between $25,000 and $45,000," Tayler said. "New industries are locating in Utah and are demanding expertise that we can offer." All courses are transferable to any State or private institution in Utah.
