"We made a staff decision when I joined the news team in the fall, of 1989 to move from regional competitions to the big leagues at the national level. The nation's big-league colleges and universities, i.e. Stanford, USC, NYU, Columbia, attend and compete at these conventions. The competition is keener, but the rewards are greater," said Grant Flygare, student publication coordinator. "This year's news team should be congratulated on their constant effort in trying to be fair and accurate in their news coverage," said Flygare. "We have a long way to go before we can claim truly commendable news coverage, but I'm pleased that national judges recognized what we have accomplished," said Thomas Epting, editor in chief of the College Times.

Cifford Community Editor Ida Smith, founder of the BYU Women's Institute, ad-ressed over 100 students in the hall of flags last Wednesday as a part of the Brown Bag series of lectures which the Womens' resource center and Gender Equity co-sponsored. Smith spoke on working through, not against differences in males and females. She started by encouraging the audience to "let go of some ideas and be willing to consider new ones." She said there are many areas where males and females are the same'but I'm not here to discuss where we overlap, I'm speaking on the substantial and real dif ferences between us. "The biggest differences between men and women," she said, "do not lie below the waist, Administrator Rick Swope Staff Writer Since Fall semester, UVCCs administration has promised students new computer labs, but UVCC has run out of funds and there are still no new labs.

Smith broke malefemale differences into two categories, verbal communication and cellular make up. Males and females have problems in communication because they preform it differently. As one male audience member said'Women say we can't talk about our feelings and women can't talk about anything but their feelings." Smith said to aknowledge there are differences in the way you communicate and work within those differences.

"A month ago Chappell told me there was no money for a new lab," said Patey. "We ran out of money," said Chappell. He stated that the reason for the lack of funds was that the money went to various facility repairs. Chappell said the lab is still going to go in. Patey said, "The issue is that there is a student need that is not being fulfilled." In the meantime students are left with one com 111 1 Students petition for Patey impeachment Thomas Epting Editor in Chief Studentbody President Kenneth C. Patey may be coming home from his honeymoon to an unwanted wedding gift. If members of UVCCs Law Society can collect the 900 neccesary signatures, they intend to present him with a petition forcing his own impeachment proceedings. In a one-and-a-half page statement, the Law Society-backed petition claims that Patey failed to fulfill his contract as studentbody president. It states: "We the students of UVCC have read the constitution and understand the impeachment process. The Law Society and all others who are repulsed at witnessing the gross misuse of funds, power and responsibility do hereby appeal the decision of coucil to reinstate Mr. Patey and demand he resign and give the funds and position to one who deserves it and one who's capable of fulfilling it. ...We find his actions inexcusable." Auto burglar targets CD's, speakers and Toyotas Cynthia C. Pulsipher Senior News Editor A series of auto break-ins has put UVCC campus police on alert. According to UVCC Police Officer Tracy Marrott, a suspect is being sought in connection with the theft of car stereo equipment from three locked Toyota pick-up trucks. The break-ins took place on Feb. 12-13, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Stolen items from the vehicles include a Kenwood pull-out CD player and boot, two MTX 8-inch speakers in boxes, a Sherwood 180 puter lab that, Patey said, had a two hour wait during finals week of Fall semester. An interesting note is that the administration has scheduled classes in the science building computer lab, which was paid for out of student funds, and at one time was open to students. Patey said he was initially told that these classes would only lasta fewhours. He later found out that these classes were scheduled for several more hours and were arranged at sporadictimes throughouttheday.

Those breeches include failure to enroll for classes this spring, failure to attend meetings and activities for which the officer has responsibility, failure to meet GPA requirements and "the questionable circumstances behind the later grade correction," Noriega said. Law Society members also questioned Patey's current class schedule, which includes nine hours of work study, a two-hour woodworking class, and a one-hour theater workshop. "Exactly what does the nine hours of work study entail?" the students ask in their petition. "Who is overseeing this? Ken Patey expected sympathy for his own negligence and lack of self-motivation.
