VICA Club was well- represented at state competition held at Salt Lake Community College on April 12, and 13 where 53 students (out of 89 club members) represented the school. In the VICA club, individuals from each vocational and industrial represented their area in the competition. They competed in two categories: 1. Skills Olympic competition (the largest area). Students compete in an area against other post-secondary institutions. 2. Leadership. Students arc given the opportunity in learning: a. Parliamentary Procedures b. Speaking Capabilities Artist Rod Morgan Helps Professor Calvin Q. bv Terry Younp In the entire state of Utah there is only one class offered in welded sculpture and it belongs to UVCC. Barbara Wardle and Don Phillips blend their respective talents to make this class not only possible but successful. For Rod Morgan, who enrolled in the class in the fall of 1986, it has opened new doors. Morgan produced several small sculptures both during and after the class. Using one of them, entitled "The Symbol of Three Dimensional Infinity", as a model, he approached Dick Chappcll, head of the art acquisition committee for UVCC. Although Chappell was interested in the sculpture, Morgan was told that there was no money available to purchase a larger version of the piece. Morgan then approached Dan Hughes at Signetics with the design and a tongue-in-cheek interpretation of its meaning. It reads: "Professor Calvin Q. Lait, while working on his new theories of intergalactic space travel, found that existing math was inadequate. What he needed was a three dimensional coordinate system of integral and inverse spherical functions. He therefore devised this new set of equations to calculate the ratios of three dimensional galactic expansion in relationship to time modulation, according to Einstein's Theory of Relativity. He named this new math Trialculus. Among the scientific notation of this new math was, ,The symbol of three dimensional infinity. i I Cdfl Utah to National A!l first place winncis go on to the national convention.

Professor Cal Q. Lait was so intrigued with this new symbol that he commissioned a talented, albeit unknown artist named Rod Morgan to recreate it in three dimensional form.

It was then that he decided to explore the possibility of a career in art. He enrolled at the Fishback School of Photography in Sacramento, hoping to turn his hobby into part of his career. Visiting with family in Utah, he was offered a job with Clegg Construction. Because the money was pretty good, he accepted the position and moved to Provo. After working for two years he decided to enroll at UTC. Morgan is a graphic arts major with about two quarters to go before he gels his degree. He says he will probably use what he has learned in the Graphics Arts program to make a living, but hopes that, in the near future, he will be well enough established in the art field to be able to make his INSIDE UVC College Times Editorials page 2 Sports page 3 Campus News....pages 4, 5 & 6 ASUVCC News page 4 Wedding Supplement.. ..Insert Volume 16 Number 26 Right Foot The Ballroom Dance Team is a newly formed program that has been in existence for four months. It was formed as an answer to a request for a performing dance team. The team is directed by Elaine Hansen. In an interview, Hansen expressed her excitement for this new program. She stated that "the General Studies and Physical Education Administrations have been very supportive of the team." As well as working with the Ballroom Dance Team, Hansen is one of UVCC's newest choreographers. She is presently choreographing UVCC'S spring musical "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" produced and directed by Kim Brewster. t fifth in Rexburg competition who is their choreographer Trialculus living through commissions. Morgan has taken a first place in the "Nature" photography competition at the Monty L. Bean Museum at BYU the last two years. Recently he won a gold medal at the Utah state VICA club competition in commercial photography. He has taken correspondence courses with the Art Instruction School and received their Blue Ribbon Award, appearing in their national magazine. He was pleased with the exposure the award gave him because he says it is so hard to break into the art field on a money making basis. Morgan credits UVCC and instructors Don Phillips and Barbara Wardle for the training and opportunity to pursue a career in commissioned art. For a start, he is now working the sculpture which will someday be in the Science Building for all to enjoy.
