Club Etc., UVCC's new biweekly night club, debuted on Sat night, Sep 7 in the student center ballroom with an audience of about two hundred. Paying $3.99 a person for the two-hour show, the night-club goers saw Brian Kelly and Dave Nielson from ASUVCC open with a synchronized swimming act in an inflatable children's' pool followed by the featured comedy team "Mike and Me," Mike Calpier and Gary Nielson, both from Salt Lake City. Audience improvisation is a highlight of the act. Calpier called for a quick-talking volunteer from the audience. After choosing Club Etc. master of ceremonies Kirk Weisler to assist, Calpier explained that Weisler had to continuing talking until Nielson clapped, then Calpier would talk until the next clap the increasing absurd conversation would prove humorous. "I can do this no problem," said Weisler, "I was ready to go for anything." And he went for everything. Their improvisation began with Weisler' s "milk it does a body good," and flip-flopped (progressing or digressing) to homosexuals in the army the real fruit-loops to go with the milk quipped Calpier. After the show, Calpier explained the comedy improvisation, "It works if you just keep throwing out premises. With Gary giving the signal, he is listening for the timing factor. He lets it build to a point where the punch needs to come. Comedy is a matter of timing: of building a tension and then releasing that tension, of setting a premise then doing a hook off that premise. The more absurd you can be in relationship to the premise, the funnier it gets." "Mike and Me's" act finished with a bedtime story told in spuderism, the switching. of the constants in important words of the sentence. Mike began, "Once upon a time in a coreign founrty, there lived a geautiful birl named Rindercella."

Mike Calpier and Gary Nielson evaluated local football with a joke. "I gotta tell ya, we've been trying to figure out the difference between University of Utah football fans and BYU football fans and I think we understand the difference it is this: University of Utah football fans get drunk and obnoixous; BYU fans don't get drunk." Birthday cake feeds 3,000 at 50-year fest Sadie Le Cheminant Staff Writer Campus and community participation in Friday's, "kick-off celebration" marked the beginning of UVCC's year-long 50th anniversary.Activities began at 10:45 a.m. when President Kerry Romesburg, joined by two past college presidents , snared his thoughts on the growth of UVCC. Then a crowd of students, faculty and local residents sang "Happy Birthday to You" over a mock-wedding cake for 3,000. "This is a day to reflect on the great accomplishments of the past and the exciting future that this school holds," said Bob Ramussen of college relations. Meanwhile, a Battle of the Bands in the cafeteria featured the band, DarylStevenett, and theduo, Chance and Michaels. The band named after lead singer Daryl Stevenett played country music.

Fresh cadaver renews life in anatomy labs Cynthia C. Pulsipher Senior News Editor Very important people are not uncommon to UVCC. However, the arrival of a unique VIP in the anatomy lab "is an extremely rare privilege for a two-year community college," said Clair Eckersell, anatomy lab instructor. Broadening its life science curriculum in January 1990, UVCC became one of a handful of two-year schools to include cadavers in the anatomy lab learning experience. This semester a new body was purchased through BYU to replace the two previously used. "They were taken back to BYU where their remains were cremated and returned to their families," said Eckersell. Bodies are usually donated with the previous consent of the deceased or their families. Cremation is necessary by law due to the nature of the chemicals used in the embalming process. Cadavers are treated with respect. "They are still human to us," said Eckersell. "We treat them like we would any other person, whether they're alive or dead." Students are strongly cautioned not to make jokes about the cadaver and to handle the body with care. Anatomy class students leam through hands-on experience, though the disections . may only be performed by trained teaching assistants under the direction of Eckersell. Of ten thought of as morbid, TA's talk excitedly about the opportunity to get their hands on a fresh body. 'The human body is an intricately complex machine," said one TA. "Because each body is different it's fascinating to see beneath a person's skin and find all the intricacies that made them who they were." All anatomy TA's are grateful to the person who donated this body and look forward to getting to know her in great detail.
