The winners, all of Party Check, are Paul VonStrahl as president, Ryan Young as academic vice-president, and activities president Joey Val-dez.With only 10 percent of the student body voting, Party Check took 647 party votes, knocking down the competition's 347. Individual votes also were in Check's favor, except for the race between Valdez and Kevin Wiscombe where Valdez received 27 fewer votes than the GUTS canidate. The elected council will take office in May, after a retreat with this year's council. "We'll be ready to settle into the posi tions once they give us the ball.'.' said Valdez. The biggest change the three would like to see for next year is a diversified and accessible student government. "We don't want to govern from up here," VonStrahl said putting his hand up. "We want to be among the students." Young, currently the trades representative on student council, said "Before I was on student government I didn't feel like I could go up to people on student council and tell them my ideas or concerns about what was going on in trades or the school. We're going to be available to the students now so I hope students will stop us in the hall and tell us whaf s going on.

They also plan to work on issues including four-year status, day cSre on campus, enviorn-mental concerns, lowering textbook prices, improving lab equipment through local fund raisers, and creating a "clear and solid constitution." They also hope to make elections run smoother for next year's canidates. "Government needs to let up on all the red tape, all the baloney, all the grievances. It was crazy," said VonStrahl, who was penalized eight votes for minor rule infractions, including coming within 20 feet of voting booths. His opponent, Suzy Orton, was penalized c.e vote for going into a voting booth to help a blind girl vote. Can you afford to be a late bloomer? Gene Morris Staff Writer Students requiring remedial classes to start college off on the right foot may be charged an additional fee for the extra help. Remedial classes, located in the Learning Enrichment Center, are designed to provide students with courses to get them up to speed with credited college courses. The Board of Regents met last week to decide if students should be required to pay additional fees, or if the number of classes offered should be limited. If a prospective student were required to take three to five remedial classes and had to pay theentirecost,itwould amount to over $1,500. Those responsible for promoting the budget cut and additional charges to students believe that if a student didn't leam what he or she should have in high school, if s their own fault and should have to bear the burden of an addition fee to catch up. 'To me that is fatuous reasoning," said Lucille Stoddard, vice president of academic affairs. "A student may do well in math, but not in English." Stoddard argues that because many students may have weak spots in their education, there is no reason to condemn them. "We should take students and test them. If they have to start at a 99, a 101 or a 115 level class, lef s get them started and allow them to get their education," said Stoddard.Studieshaveshown that students involved in remedial classes are twice as likely to stay in school and graduate than those who aren't. "I feel very strongly that it is part of a community college to help students get their education," Stoddard said. "The quality of the restof their lives is whatis effected; See REMEDIAL page 1 1 POW shares story Cynthia C. Pulsipher Senior News Editor As a young gentile girl living in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood during the German occupation of Amsterdam, Cato Persico was raised in a politically active family determined to help their Jewish friends escape the horrors of Nazi internment. Speaking to UVCC students at an international forum on Thu., March 19, Persico chronicled the events which led up to and included her capture and two year imprisonment in Nordhausen Concentration Camp. She was twelve. Wearing little Hitler uniforms, Persico's friends joined the Hitler Youth, following in the footsteps of their parents. "If you ever become a member of the Nazi party, no matter where I am, I will come back "If you ever become a member of the Nazi party, no matter where I am, I will come back and I will kill my own kids," Persico's father and I will kill my own kids," said Persico's father shortly before he was taken by the Nazis. Watching her neighbors being beaten by German soldiers, Persico understood her father's stand. Dressing in black, she and her brother Hank would go into the night to smuggle forged identification papers for people trying to leave the country.

Gifford Senior News Director In a Board of Regent's meeting at Dixie College, March 20-21, UVCC decided to adopt Salt Lake Community College's tuition plan for the 92-93 school year to take care of increased enrollment needs. The board recommended a $30 yearly surcharge on tuition. But UVCC instead agreed to meet SLCC's tuition. There will be at least a four percent increase implemented in resident tuition. Non-residents will pay the full cost of their- education, wich is estimated at $3700 a year. However, the increase will be phased out over a two year period. Where tuition rates are now the same from 13 to 17 credit hours, next year the limits will extend to 12 to 18.The tuition plan should be finalized in a March 25 meeting with SLCC, said Gil Cook, vice president for college relations, who attended the meetings.
