When all else fails, start a war says editorialist "Covert" activities examined See page 2 Romesburg explains expansion Justin Broderick Staff Writer UVCC is a unique institution in the state and the nation, which must be preserved in any four-year manifestation of the school, President Kerry Romesburg said in a public forum Tuesday. "In every case in the nation where a community college becomes a four year, in 100 percent, the community college aspect becomes smaller and smaller, and slowly becomes a traditional four year school. We can not do that," he told the group of students in the ballroom. "Whafs going to make this school different is that we're going to preserve at all costs the community college." To this end, Romesburg outlined the special classifications of bachelor's degrees the four-year school will offer: bachelors of liberal arts, technology, business and education. These degrees will be less specialized than those of universities or even other four year colleges, he said, but stressed that this was in keeping with the school's unique position. Maintaining the community nature of the school is not the only limiting factor in UVCC's expansion. Battles for funding will continue. Where the money will come from is the major question facing the legislature, the board of regents, and the state's other colleges.One source is a given. "If you don't know it already, your tuition is going to go up," Romesburg said, even though he admitted UVCCs tuition is among the highest of comparable schools in the West. Romesburg stressed the cost effectiveness of his "two-plus-two" formula, in which the school's first Council rejects advice wants raises Thomas Epting Editor in Chief Responding to requests from UVCC's student council, student government advisers suggested that council officers should receive no stipends for their service. Several officers rejected the advisers' suggestions and are negotiating the stipend amounts they will receive for spring semester. In a Jan. 16 executive session closed to the public and press council members asked Tom Hover, director of student programs and Ann Richardson, coordinator of student center activities, to suggest "due compensation" for student officers. The request follows several weeks of Jaz Kaner performs for full house Preview of upcoming acts See page 5 0"B imes volume i!ivk..i..Vsss Thomas Eptlng Th Coffey Timet UVCC President Kerry Romesburg addresses some of the issues facing the school in a public forum Tuesday. Although proceeding full-speed with a four year proposal to be submitted to the Board of Regents in September, Romesburg admitted that many questions still need to be resolved, including facilities, faculty, sports programs, and above all, funding the expanded institution. two years would be of the open-door, community college format, after which the student could be admitted to the second two years to finish the bachelor's degree. "Why will this be less expensive to the state? Because the first two years can be funded like a community college," he explained. This would be mostly due to the lower costs of faculty, who are allowed higher class loads in two-year colleges. Such questions as the library, council in-fighting over the con-rti nationality and amounts of the stipend raises four members of the council gave themselves last semester. "Experience has shown us that monetary stipends provided to student officers are more of a dis-satisfier than a motivator," said Hover, reading from his report. "It becomes clear that any amount of monetary award, whether or not that be a wage, salary, or stipend, never satisfies the need or greed for more." Hover argued that officers are servants of the student body. "Each year student officers have requested and received more monetaryreward.

Sports, he added, could be played on the same level as before, even with the school going four-year. Romesburg is confident that the college can be expanded without severely damaging the state'sother schools. The money is there, he believes, citing the state's budget surplus as a possible source, although acknowledging that it will officers spent just as many hours and were just as productive in service to the student body as they are today," said Hover. "Therefore, the advisors recommend dropping the stipend, but do endorse the tuition waiver program including paying for official college travel expense." Student officers currently receive full tuition waivers and free college-related travel. After Hover presented the advisers' recommendations, the council moved to the discussion of a bill sponsored by Madden, Chris Brere ton and Cortney Gibbs. Their bill called for an elimination of stipends but allows $400 per semester in a sponsored account "for the purpose of paying be a fight. Oppositon to theplan, especially by students of the other state schools, is something Romesburg can understand. He said that he believes their concerns will be answered, just as the board of regents' were. "It was a big decision for the Board of R-egents. They had no basis to say no, they had no basis to say yes. They said prepare a model, and then we'll go to the legislature. That's where we are now,"he said. the fees and book expenses in addition to the full tuition wavier," the bill states. Most council members thanked Hover and Richardson, but claimed the need for compensation above the tuition wavier. Following lengthy debate, a vote was called and the bill failed. Brereton, Reese Healey and Tonya Harris voted for the bill to limit stipends. Brian Kelly, Amy Kelly, Ethan Clark and Stan Freeman voted against the bill. David Nielsen abstained. Though he spoke against the bill, studentbody President Kenneth C. Patey doesn't vote unless a tie must be broken. He said the ' stipend raise was justified and in line with state averages.

The McAllister Actwould limit abortions to instances of rape, incest, or when the mother or fetus's live is in danger. Pro-life supporters argue that the act would be a perpetuation of violation to rape and incest victims, who would be required to report incidents within a certain amount of time. Women, men and children joined in songs and chants to kick off the rally. Speakers including a minister, a legislator, U of U law professor Deborah Threhe, and BYU English Professor Eloise Bell delivered messages on various pro-choice views. "The issue is not whether abortion is right or wrong, the' issue is who should decide." said Threhe in her opening remarks. She later noted that "if the government is allowed todecidewhen women should have a child it will lead togovernmentdecidingwhen a women should not have a child." A Utah legislator spoke on parenting by choice saying pregnancy should come from intellectual intent rather than biological result. He also said that he feels the fetus is alive from when the two chromosomes join, but that was not the issue being discussed. "I represent Mormons who are , anti-abortion but pro-choice," said See RALLY, page 4 Eating disorders effect one in five women Jackie Horsley Staff Writer UVCC will host a lecture dealing with the topic of eating disorders as a highlight of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week on Feb. 5, at noon in the ballroom.
