One candidate has already been disqualified at the mandatory orientation meeting Competitors excel in 17 categories Jan Rhone Staff Writer There was a lot of support and participation in the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America mini-olympics last week and many students showed just how excellent UVCC's trades and technical programs are. This school began as a trades technical college and has grown into a junior college, but the excellence of trades training has never diminished. At an awards ceremony held after the contest President Kerry Romes-burg addressed the students and let them know that as our school grows bigger there are no plans to de-emphasize the importance of these programs. This was proven by the money and materials donated by the school for this event. The staff in these areas were very supportive of all interested students. "The faculty should be commended for not only work-ing industriously with these students in the im.es volume held last Thursday for all candidates campaigning for the 91-92 period. Robert Wagner running for activities vice-president with the Republican Party of Utah was seemingly disqualified for leaving this mandatory meeting early.

The long preparation for the Collision Repair area was to gather eighty fenders and then gash and hammer them for the students to repair. This took many man hours that were See VICA, page 16 :J A i V- ' where they left off The meeting was delayed twenty minutes due to tardiness of election committee members. ASUVCC President Kelly Bitters said that the rules were very clear and that in order to be fair to all candidates every candidate must be present. "I can't be lenient on that because I told another party before-hand, whose member needed to go to work, that they had to be there no matter what and would have to make the sacrifice." The party is including the member in their campaign anyway and plan to take the problem before the elections board again. Bitters said that he thinks it will probably come down to Wagner's disqualification but said the committee is free to listen to their complaint regardless. Election committee members present at the meeting were Val Peterson, director of college relations, J.D. Davidson, humanities department chair, Judy Jaussi, ombudsman secretary, John Kenney, general studies senator, Elaine Englehardt, assistant to dean of general studies, Tawnya Smith, activities vice-president, and Bitters as the chair. Tom Hover, director of student life, was present and will act as advisor to candidates during elections. Patrick Hanrion, ombudsman, will serve as the legal mediator and will help candidates with questions of legality in campaigning. Karen Lynch and Allison Reed are the two members of the board that were not present at the meeting. Elaine Englehardt was scheduled to give a short speech and due to her late arrival she spoke very briefly. She spoke on ethics in campaigning and said that "in I .......-J. community college I " K v. I V I 1 Robert Wagner Republican Party society we need to execute a lot of self-control in order to get along." Englehardt also advised the candidates to "do things that you would want others to do to you and that is probably the best way that you can conduct your campaign."There were four complete parties present at the meeting, one partial party consisting of president and activities vice president and one individual candidate running for president. Those elected may serve with members from other parties due to the split party elections rule. Split party elections means that only the top candidates with the most votes from each party will move on to primaries and to the final elections. The Student Body Election Rules were reviewed by Peterson. Questions were answered by Bitters along with a few clarifications of the rules. Toward the end of the meeting telephone books were distributed to alii the parties and they were ajked to make a list of prospects to sponsor their campaign. Each list must be approved by the development office. The meeting adjourned as the parties made their lists.
