y OLLEGE TIME Volume Seventeen : fi J George Bush L Orrin Hatch ....... j Phone System Provides Better Communication Sunny George Staff Writer One of the newest systems at Utah Valley Community College is the Automated Attendant (the direct dialing system for the college). When the numbers 226-5000 (UVCC) are dialed, a recorded voice will immediately answer and instruct you on how to ring the extension number of the person or department you need to reach. If you have a touch tone phone, all you need to do is punch in the extension needed, and the Automated Attendant will transfer the call to that number. The system also provides voice mail. Voice mail works like an answering machine. When the person that needs to be reached isn't in, a message can be left on a machine. If an emergency comes up at midnight, and you need to get through to an extension immediately, the Automated Attendant will be there to answer your call. However, if you do not know the extension number, or you are not on a touch tone phone, you will have to Wait until an operator is there to assist you. If you call between the hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, you will have the option to either stay on the line or dial 0 and you will be connected with one of the service's knowledgeable operators.

"My first recollection of Vietnam," said Cronauer, "was when they opened the door to the plane and the heat came at us like something out of a blast furnace." Much of his audience had never been outside their home states, "Not surprisingly, culture shock had set in with a vengeance and it was our mission to provide a moral factor for those people by giving them something familiar to listen to. I interpreted that as meaning 'to make it sound as much as possible like a state side radio station,'" Cronauer reported. Cronauer colored in the shapes of his experiences in Siagon and outlined the details of his reality compared to the reality Robin Williams created in the movie Good Morning Vietnam . He also compared the reality of his war and the infantry man's war. And stressed how nothing was the black and white good or evil of the movie .
