The drum competitions and dancing were judged by how well the drum beats go with the dance expression. There were also Pow-Wows being held in Pocatello and St. George, so this Pow-Wow wasn't as large as hoped, but the evening was rich in tradition and spirituality from beginning to end, making for a very special evening. Fee placement in question Jeff Myers Staff Writer Is UVCC an academic institution or an athletic institution? This is thequestion currently in the center of negotiations between the student council and the Board of Regents concerning the placement of student fees. The student council wants more of the money that goes to athletics and activities to go to the library. Out of the approximately $2.5 million contributed this year in student fees, the athletic program gets $28.50 annually, while the library receives $6.50. "The debate we got into was academics vs. athletics and activities," student body president Paul VonStrahl said. "Finally the decision came down to students believing this is more an academic institution than an athletic institution."The student council's proposal would cut $4 from the athletic department's share of student fees and $1 off of the student activity portion. This would mean a loss of approximately $40,000 from the athletics budget and $10,000 from the student activity budget. The library would receive approximately 550,000. UVCC's library is lacking in comparison with other two-year college libraries. According to Bonnie Henrie, acting dean of learning resources and services, the library currently has a total collection of Loss of blue bags proves costly Bud Bate Staff Writer Many of us know what it feels like to leave the testing center feeling blue. But apparently many students know what it feels like to leave the testing center with a "blue bag." It was reported last spring that approximately 100 bags ($600 worth) had been stolen (or accidentally taken, perhaps) from the testing center. If s ironic that the bags, which allow students to keep their possessions secure and prohibits the chance to be dishonest, are disappearing. John Catlett, assistantdirectorof the testing cen r 1 55,000 volumes. This is little more than half of the minimum 100,000 volumes that it should have in order to meet national standards for two-year colleges. "We'd like to earmark the money to go directly to periodicals and volumes," VonStrahl said. "We fall short as it is for a two-year institution, let alone a four-year institution." UVCC President Kerry D. Romesburg has not yet received a formal request from the student council to restructure the distribution of student fees, but he was sympathetic to their needs. "I can certainly understand the students' desire to not increase fees and to direct them in a different direction," he said. 'That is very understandable. But there are a couple of issues they need to consider." One of these issues is the fact that if the regents did approve the student council's proposal, it would more than likely be necessary to cut at least one athletic program, perhaps thenewly-established cross-country program, Romesburg said. "There's not any question we need to bring additional revenues into the library , especially for ongoing periodicals," Romesburg roid. "It's admirable that students want to spend money in that effort.The question is do we undo or dismantle part of our athletic program. If we can do both without doing that, I think we're better off." ter, was hoping that the bags would eventuallybe returned so thatnew ones would not have to be purchased.Eight or nine bags were returned, but last fall, Catlett had to order 150 new bags at $6.10 a bag (about $915 total). 'There's probably 50 better purposes that the money could be used for," he said. "I highly suspect that it is still happening," Catlett said when asked if he thought the new bags were being taken, adding that the center is probably losing about two bags a week. "Whether the bags are hanging on a wall as a trophy, or being used for a laundry bag...
