1 I! ' : . . - ... - .-: : - Vol. 7 No. 23 UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE AT PROVO April 2, 1979 School Play has Successful Run The UTC melodrama "Bertha, The Beautiful Typewriter Girl" had a successful run last week as it was played before audiences on Tuesday and Thursday nights. UTC produces a melodrama each year under the general direction of George Tanner. This year the play was produced and directed by Daisy Schultz. "Bertha, The Beautiful Typewriter Girl" was written by Charles George and is set in the old west. It is the story of a villanous banker, Daniel Desbrow Desmond (Alan Kendall), Mable Olson Retires She has been registrar since 1952. For three years before that, beginning in 1949, she was receptionist and secretary. And for most of the 30 years since then she has been mother and grandmother to countless students and even some of the younger faculty. She is Mable Olson, who ended 30 years of service last week at Utah Technical College at Provo-Orem. When she started as a receptionist it was the Central Utah Vocational School and her office was in a converted Civilian Conservation Corps tarpaper barracks. She will not officially retire until the end of school this spring quarter. Between now and then she will take Barbara Winder to Speak at Institute of Religion )' ,'y 1 Barbara Winder will speak at Wed. April 3 at 8 p.m. and his herioc son, David Desmond (Lance Stark), who is also somewhat naive and a little too superfluous in his profundity and adjective clauses. The plot thickens when Boswell Bancroft (George Tanner) returns from Africa with a large fortune in diamonds and then has a heart attack in Desmond's office. Desmond uses the fortune to save his bank from going bankrupt but fails to find the receipt which he has given to Boswell, which once found by himself will cover up his despicable crime legally accumulated sick leave and vacation pay. Utah Tech President Wilson W. Sorensen said her successor as registrar of the college will be announced soon. Mable Olson became an institution at Utah Tech. Widowed for 22 years, the college became her life. But she has no qualms about retirement. She is a famed cook. Friends have been urging her to write a cookbook and she just may do it. She has even been asked to teach a cooking class in the Utah Tech Evening School. She wants to give more attention to grandmothering, her own three grandchildren (her daughter is Mrs. Duane Smith) instead of students. the forum at the Institute this against the Bancroft family. The loss of the money causes beautiful Bertha Bancroft (Janet Ufford) to take a job as a typewriter girl in the Desmond bank. This causes a conflict between father and son Desmond over their love for her. The play has a happy ending when Bridget O'Casey (Robert Perry) shows up with the receipt and saves the day for Bertha and David. The players were all volunteers and did a good job for UTC. She loves to garden, and she suspects that her present schedule as a Provo LDS Temple worker may be expanded. She started in 1949 as a receptionist, carrying out dual responsibilities of secretary to President Sorensen, who had himself only recently taken over the reins of the school, and Mrs. Sylvia Anderson, who retired two years ago as the institution's treasurer. She also helped in the registrar's office, and when John Tolton left in 1952 as registrar, she stepped in. She has carried it since, working alone until 1963 when she got one helper. The Orem Institute of Religion will have as its forum speaker this week Barabara W. Winder who is currently a member of the General Relief Society Board. The forum will be held this Wednesday April 3 at 8a.m. in the Institute Building located near the Orem UTC campus. Mrs. Winder serves on the Spiritual Living and Joint Activities Committees for the General Board as well as serving as Lambda Delta Sigma National President. In the past she has served as a teacher in all organizations, chorister in all organizations, Primary President, Young Women Mutual President and Melchizedek Priesthood MIA General Board member for the LDS Church. In the community she has held various positions in the PTA, has worked as Cancer Drive district chairman, Voting District chairman and has also worked with the scouting programs.
