Ladies Take Championship Paige Holmes Sport Editor The Lady Wolverines Softball team opened its 1989 season not only with a win, but with a championship title. The Wolverines took the St. George tournament with a 6-1 record Saturday, March 18. Paige Holmes pitched six of the seven games leading the defense. Thursday, March 16, the Lady Wolverines beat Dixie, last years champions, 1-0 on a one-hitter by Holmes. Friday morning, the Wolverines awoke to meet the CEU Eagles, less the shy bats of Thursday night, beating the Eagles 4-1. The team next met up with the Utah Stars. The Wolverines lost 2-0, their only loss in the tournament. UVCC's defense did its best against the talent and bunting ability of the Stars. With lessons learned from the loss, and renewed by a rest, the Wolverines redeemed themselves against the Salt Lake Bee's with a 14-2 win. The scoring continued Saturday as dawn broke, and the team faced CEU once again. The Wolverine's comfortable lead of 6-1 was challenged in the final inning when Holmes pitched one hit, then walked two, to load the bases with no outs. Holmes bore down to strike out the following three batters. In the semi-final game the Wolverines thumped on the Salt Lake Jr. Stars 7-3. Debbie Taylor led the attack with a triple, the team continued with a consistent scoring drive. The Wolverines avenged their previous 2-0 loss with a 5-0 shutout. The offense used singles and their strong left-handed attack to place runners in scoring position. Sue Lyon See Softball Continued on page 7 Graphic Arts, a Well Kept Secret Daniel Hatch Staff Writer The UVCC graphic arts program has been a well-kept secret for most of its 17 year existence. Despite high job placement rates, the courses have a relatively low studentteacher ratios, most classes being conducted with between 15 and 25 students. However the satisfaction of hands-on trainging and the extended knowledge of the course instructors lead to maximum job placement opportunities making a career in graphic arts a worth while investment. The UVCC graphic program provides on hands instructions, with many classes overlapping the lecture time, so the principles being taught to the students can be applied in a practical manner. The paste-up instructor gives the class specifications for an assignment and demonstrates the project using standard trade procedures to produce it. The press class will have a designated lecture time where the teacher explains the offset process for the assignment given, and he will also run the press to display the aspect to the students. The lab times provide the student with the time to experiment while working on class assignments, gaining experience on different types of machinery. Other classes offered include: design, typesetting, desktop publishing, lettering, illustration, airbrushing, silk screening, camera, and a COOP program. The Instructional staff at the Provo campus is comprised of three full time teachers-Larry Holt, Steve Adams, and Doug Anderson, who teach the core classes and three part time instructors-Larry Esmay, Faun Jackson, and Michelle Welkner who teach specialty classes. The program chairman, Larry Holt, has been at the college for eight years providing quality education for the students. He is responsible for preparing course schedules and descriptions. Holt teaches camera, silk screen, presswork, desktop publishing, lettering and is the CO-OP coordinator. He has done graduate work at BYU, Merritt college, Sac state (University of Sacramento See Arts Continued on page 8 Scholarships Available for Returning Students Applications will be available April 3, 1989 for Returning Student Tuition Waiver Scholarships for the 1989-90 school year.

Tuition Fees on the Rise UVCC full-time students will be facing a $72 hike in tuition fees for the year when they register for the 1989-90 school year. The State Board of Regents has approved a permanent tuition and fee increase ranging from 7 to 9 percent for Utah's nine public colleges and universities. The change is effective on July 1. The University of Utah, Utah State University, Weber State College and Southern Utah State College were authorized last Friday to raise tuition 9 percent, while Snow College, Dixie College and the College of Eastern Utah were given permission for a 7 percent hike. Utah Valley Community College can raise tuition 8 percent and the Salt Lake Community College can increase tuition charges 6 percent. The institutions were also given the option of increasing their fees the same percent or less than that of their assigned tuition increase. C. Gail Norris, associate commissioner of budget and finance, said the increase was necessary, and his committee is looking for more ways to raise education money. "We have an unusual situation in Utah," he said. "In many states, university enrollment is declining. But in Utah, the students are still there." Norris said he anticipated enrollment would continue to increase "and the revenues from the state are not likely to be there." The Board of Regents has two committees, one working to "look at more efficient ways to do things, to combine and consolidate," and the other looking for new sources of revenue and studying how high to set tuition, Norris said.
