A written complaint was filed with Dr. Wayne Kearney, Vice President of Student Services, Tom Hover, Director of Auxiliary Services & Student Activities, Elaine Englehardt, adviser to the Tradewinds PRESS. Charges were filed by candidate Tony Marren concerning the editorial appearing in the special supplement of the Tradewinds PRESS, "Let the Record Speak." Marren explained, "I desire to present this as my petition to see that a meeting be convened to address the issue due to the obvious misinformation of statements made by the Press in the spirit of suppossedly expressing truths that in all reality are faith promoting rumors." A meeting was called Thursday, April 18. Dr. Kearney and Ann Richardson, Student Services, co-chaired the meeting. Marren referred to charges against Bobby Thomas and Kathleen Plothow, Editor for the Tradewinds PRESS. One of the major allegations were against Thomas and Plothow, charging of Social Work at the Univer sity of Utah and who received the 1984 Susa Young Gates award for outstanding service to women in Utah and for dedication to the cause of Human Rights, workshop sessions will include Career Dynamics, Satellite sessions, and a session on Entrprcneuring. them with consipiracy against the incumbent Jay Deuel. Accusations led to Plothow and Thomas combining efforts in writing the editorial against Deuel. Evidence from both Marren and Plothow were weighed and the charges were dismissed. The basis for further confrontation dealth with the allegation of the "obvious misinformation" in the "Let The Record Speak" PRESS editorial' Dr. Kearney observed that though he did not agree with the student newspaper taking a stand on the elections, he agreed it. was the paper's right. The continued discussion determined that editorials are subjective and are in fact an opinion. These allegations were also dropped. The editorial proved not to be libelous or slanderous. The final question was whether or not such speculation called for a re-vote, with the idea the Survivors II campaign had been hurt by the PRESS editorial. Elections committee chairman, Paul Wheeler, did not see a reason to take a finals election re-vote. Following the meeting formal charges were filed against Marren and the Survivors II party by candidate Bobby Thomas, but all charges about both parties were finally dropped. - Conference Set The deadline for Summer quarter graduation is Friday, April 26, at 5:00 p.m. Applications for graduation may be obtained at the Academic Advisement Center on the Orem campus and at the Records window on the Provo campus.
