V.I Ronald Reagan, 69, moves into the oval office as the oldest elected chief executive in historv of the U.S. On Tuesday the 20th of January, Ronald W. Reagan became the oldest man ever sworn into the office of President of the United States. The 69 year-old conservative, Republican is the 40th President of the United States. For ex-president Carter the path leads home to Plains, Ga. after a single term and the final year spent in great effort to free hostages held captive in Iran. For Reagan it led down the ceremonial route of the presidents to the White House. On the steps of the Capitol, Reagan spoke the simple oath spoken by his predecessors. "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will, to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Justice Potter Stewart administered the almost identical Vice Presidential oath to George Bush after Reagan's. After a 21-gun salute hailed the Reagan Era the new President spoke his goals off of index cards written on his flight from Los Angeles to Washington. A crowd estimated at 100.000 looked on while millions more viewed the ceremony and Inaugural speech on television. Many felt the dedication and determination in Reagan's voice. "We must act today in order to preserve tomorrow. And let there be no misunderstanding-we are going to act beginning today," said Reagan. Reagan's first official act as President began minutes after the ceremony by signing an executive order imposing a freeze on the hiring of civilian employees and calling Carter to the White House for an update on the hostage release. By Andy Klinger Beginning next quarter, UTC plans to start a new alignment training program. This program will fill a need in the growing demand for power plant operators, said President Sorenson. More and more power plants are moving to this area and the demand for this occupation is increasing. The legislature has therefore granted finances for this new program. "We still need programs for plumbers, bricklayers, and energy conservation technicians, but we have no money," said President Sorenson. "Alot of hospitals, churches, businesses, schools and families are more and more concerned with energy conservation. The need for the energy conservation technician is increasing. We hope also to get these programs approved," Sorenson added. Approval for such programs comes from the Board of Regents. Two thirds of the money provided for the school comes from legislature, state- and federal funds. "The student enrollment has more than doubled in the last ten years. The slowdown in the economy makes people believe that their time is better invested by going to school and get more education," said President Sorenson. The school had a tremendous increase of students beginning this year, with 14.5 more students.

In the pre-dawn hours of Tuesday, President Carter, in his last moments as chief executive, announced that an agreement had been signed to free the hostages. The American hostages, who had been kept prisoners in Iran for 14 months were flown out of that troubled country in two Algerian 727's. Upon touchdown in Algiers the hostages were boarded on two specially equipped DC 9's and flown to West Germany. The 4,000 mile trip was to have taken approximately 10 hours to complete. The DC 9's landed at Rein-Main Air Force base in Frankfurt, then the 52 Americans Nielsen were motorcaded 25 miles to a military hospital at Weisbaden, West Germany. The scene at home was one of jubilation and great relief. The 443rd flag was raised the day previous and church bells rang signaling the national approval of the release. Mrs. Doris Moeller, mother of Marine Sgt. Michael Moeller expressed her joy from her Loup City, Neb. home with these words, "It's what I've been waiting to hear for so long. It's just an end of a long, long time." The hostages were released after Algierian intermediaries effected the transfer of 8 billion dollars in frozen Iranian assets. The release came within minutes after Ronald Reagan was sworn in as the 40th president of the United States. Former President Jimmy Carter was ex pected to travel to Wiesbaden to visit the hostages before their return home to the states. The 52 former American hostages will remain in the care of doctors at the Air Force hospital in Wiesbaden for up to five days for medical checkups and psychological testing. r fe.T ) o 4oo 4ff pLtND j ALGERIA y ) fc"Hr"V ?
