Money is imes couniry r becoming an issue volume 20 Issue 35 24 June 1992 Utah valley community college to Kirkpatrick discusses Cold War Dave Madden Editor in Chief Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Jean Kirkpatrick, was in Salt Lake City Saturday to speak to Utahns as part of the Cannon campaign's American Values Lecture Series. Kirkpatrick ad-ressed the fall of communism, the rise of capitalism, Russia's new freedom, and a renewed hope for America. Kirkpatrick began by talking about the fact that 10 years ago we heard a lot about how there was a shift in the world from capitalism to communism. Few were aware of the shift from communism to capitalism. Kirkpatrick said, "Look in your libraries, I challenge you. There are no books on the shift from socialism to capitalism, only on the shift from capitalism to socialism."She commented that just the opposite happened. " There has never been an empire in history that was liquidated as fast, and as peaceably as the Soviet empire. It simply collapsed." She went on to describe the collapse, the uprising of the Eastern European people to overthrow their communist dictators and the role that Gorbachev and the Ameri- can government. Kirkpatrick said that the Soviet people liberated themselves and deserve a good deal of credit. However, the US created the context for their liberation, and pressured Gorbachev to keep the tanks in their barracks. Kirkpatrick related a conversation she had with Gorbachev in which he told her of the event that helped convince him that the So- Shooting involves UVCC students Melinda Jo Siler Staff Writer Early Monday morning, June 8, UVCC student Rodney James was shot in the face on the banks of the Provo River. James, 18, was in serious but stable condition Monday at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. Provo Police Capt. Duane Fraser said James was walking near Provo River with his roommate when the roommate allegedly shot James in the head with a .25-caliber handgun.After being shot, James walked to Megadiamond, a Provo business a quarter of a mile away, and collapsed. A worker there called police. "A short time later, we arrested the roommate," Fraser said. UVCC student Lyle Murray was arrested at 1 a.m. near his apartment by officers investigating the shooting. Murray, who went to court June 9, remains in the county jail on a $50,000 cash bail. Doctors, Wednesday, were able to remove the bullet from James' head. He was discharged a few days later and has returned to California to be with his family. w - v Japanese school adopts UVCC curriculum Lara G if ford Senior News Editor "Perhaps the greatest power of Interna tional Ed uca tion is the power to convert nations into peoples and to translate ideologies into human aspirations," reads a sign in the office of Malan Jackson, director of international studies at UVCC. As an act of changing nations to peoples, Jackson and President Kerry Romesburg will visit Japan June 22-30 to set up sister school and joint degree agreements.Shunji Aoki, who recently came to UVCC with representatives of Itoyo Kado Corporation, will host Romesburg and Jackson, and will pay their expenses. The men will meet with the Itoyo Kado Corporation, travel agencies and schools. Travel agencies are being con sulted with to continue to bring groups of students to UVCC in exchange programs. The schools they will visit include a vocational school, Aikoku Women's College, Toyo Women's College, and Shurin Gaigo Senmon Gakko with which the sister school agreement is to be made with. "The agreement is only in the planning stages," said Jackson. It has not gone before the Board of Regents, bu t the funding would be covered through grants and other private funds. If the program is approved, select Japanese students would be able to study one year in Japan, using UVCC's curriculum, and then come to Utah to study at UVCC for a year. "All of us are working together for internationalization. This trip should forward our goals," said Jackson.

Jones is this year's newly-elected Inter-Club Council president, but she is also one of UVCC's hardest working custodians. Jones currently labors from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. every weekday and is currently working extra hours to make up for a planned July vacation to visit her family in her homeland, Burmingham, England. Jones' strong love for America pushed her to overcome obstacles to come here. Jones is on a student visa and says, "I'm just going to study here my whole life until I can marry an American. I just love America and want to be a citizen!" She is currently majoring in behavioral science and hopes to enroll in Weber State's criminal justice program taught at UVCC. Enthusiasm for college came through in her voice as she said, "I love this school; I see great things ahead for UVCC.

Investigators call it one of the most demeaning of sexual crimes. It often occurs in broad daylight and frequently in the presence of more than one witness. Despite these favorable law enforcement odds, exhibitionists or "flashers" are rarely caught. Recently, BYU police officers got lucky. The victim in a February indecent exposure at the Smith Fieldhouse recognized her assailant walking across campus two months after the initial crime. She reported the man to the officers and then accompanied them back to the location where she had spotted him. He was still there. Officers questioned the man. He eventually confessed to the February incident and at least two others. "We don't always get that lucky," said BYU police Capt. Mike Harroun. "We had a victim who wasn't afraid to get involved and push the issue. Because of that, we were able to solve the case and several more we didn't even know we had." Police officers say most indecent exposures go unreported by victims. Estimates range as high as 90 percent. It is, they say, one of the factors flashers count on when committing the crime. Harroun said the crime often goes unreported be- cause of the disgust or shame of the victim. He added that it mightalsobe because exhibitionism is no longer regarded as noteworthy by many victims and potential victims. "It's something that might disgust them, but they laugh it off when it happens," Harroun said. "If they understood that this crime may be a stepping stone to a worse crime, they might be more inclined to report it." BYU Det. Greg Barber said sex "It (indecent exposure) can lose its stimulation after a while. "They'll move on to peeking in windows and even sexual assault. This is not a harmless crime." BYU Det. Greg Barber offenses tend to be progressive. Offenders will move on to a bigger thrill once the excitement of the crime begins to wane. "It (indecent exposure) can lose its stimulation after a while," Barber said. "They'll move on to peeking in windows and even sexual assault. This is not a harmless crime." BYU had approximately 20 indecent expo-sures reported last year. Not many unless the number of unreported crimes is taken into consideration. UVCC police chief Ron Greenleaf said the com- munity college handled an estimated half dozen. Both campuses experience more than their fair share of indecent exposures. Greenleaf said the high number of young, relatively naive victims in student populations attracts flashers. "These guys are after high shock value," Greenleaf said. "They'll go wherever they can strike and have the greatest effect. "Most victimsareso rattled that we get very little in the way of description from them," Greenleaf said. Greenleaf urges victims to recover as quickly as possible and get as good a description as possible.Harroun suggests following the suspect, if it can be done safely. "Don't let them lure you to an isolated area," he said. "But if you can get help from other people, follow the suspect at a distance and report where he goes." Get help. Most indecent exposure crimes occur in populated areas. Parking lots and even libraries are frequent scenes of indecent exposure. Victims should overcome their embarrassment and ask for help from nearby people. "If you can get some other males to follow the suspect, that will free you up to call the crime in," Harroun said. Don't overreact. It's difficult not to show your anger or shock, investigators say. If victims can calmly leave the area and then look for a phone, there is a greater chance the suspect will remain until police officers arrive.
