Pulsipher Senior News Editor A 12-year-old boy was arrested by UVCC police after four sexual assaults on Mon., Jan. 27. UVCC Police Officer Tracy Marrott reported thatat5:ll p.m.a 19-year-old woman called campus security alleging that a 5-foot-6 male wieghing approximately 140 pounds and wearing blue sweats approached her in parking lot C Three votes save Patey's presidency Thomas Epting Editor in Chief Studentbody President Kenneth C. Patey failed to register for spring semester; consequently, he lost his job as president. A 15-10 secret-ballot vote by the 25 student council members reinstated him on Thu., Jan. 30. Patey's standing as president was questioned whenTTie College Times learned that he wasn't registered for spring semester and approached Dave Madden, ombudsman and student council parliamentarian. "Right no w Ken Patey isn't studentbody president, unless there has been a computer error," said Madden, basinghis claim on the qualifications section of the constitution which states: "Failure to comply with the requirements as stated in this constitution shall result in immediate dismissal of the violating Student Council member." ASUVCC's constitution requires officers to be registered for 12 credit hours each semester they participate. Patey told council members that his registration was delayed when he couldn't find a schedule to accommodate his responsibilities as studentbody president, owner of a small business, soon-to-be-married man, and student. Patey said he hoped for sympathy and told student council members "I dropped the ball. I screwed up." Madden asked, "Will the ball be dropped again?" Student council members expressed fears that Patey bends the rules too often. Tom Hover, director of student programs, told Patey, "Rules must be followed. ...You've got to follow the rules more than anyone else." Patey's presidency was questioned earlier when he failed to make the required 3.0 GPA, said Madden. Patey's had a grade changed and a class added, both in December, to bring his GPA up to 3.2. Patey called his low GPA a computer error and the failure to register a communications error. Taffy Lovell, inter-club council president, wondered how communication could See PRESIDENT, page 4 asking for directions. The youth then reached out and grabbed the woman's crotch before fleeing the area, said Marrott. The youth then accosted a22-year-old female in parking lot D. After pushing her into the side of her vehicle, the suspect pulled the woman's shirt over her head and began fondling her breasts, said Marrott. When the woman began to scream for help the boy ran from the scene. The second woman called the Orem police immediately, giving a full description of the youth. UVCC Police Chief Ron Greenleaf attributed the rapid arrest of the boy to the timely reporting of incidents by the two victims. Two related incidents were reported to campus security on Wed., Jan. 29, after the victims had read of the boy's arrest in local newspapers, said Chris Rockwood, UVCC security officer. A third victim reported that a youth fitting the newspaper description approached her as she entered the woman's restroom in the administration building at approximately 5:00 p.m. The boy grabbed her buttocks and ran off, said Rockwood. A fourth victim was apparently the boy's last, said Rockwood, in an incident occuring at approximately 5:45 p.m. Each attack became progres sively more violent, he said. The last victim was grabbed by the upper body. Her shirt and bra were ripped as the boy fondled her breasts. He then grabbed her head and began pulling at her earrings. When the woman began to scream the youth fled the scene, after which time Marrott spotted him and made the arrest, said Rockwood.Campus police would not release the full written report. Thoma Epting The College Timet Teri Germic serves the special of the day. The sign warns students that they can now be arrested for eating food while in the cafeteria. Cafeteria theft eats profits Rick Swope Staff Writer The head of UVCC food services is fed up with students stealing from the cafeteria, and he is taking action. Ken Matthews, director of food services, said that they will be placing signs up in the cafeteria that read, "Consumption of food or drink in the cafeteria service area is prohibited. Violators are subject to arrest." Assistant director of food services Steve Rowley said, "We want to make people aware. I don' t think people would reach over the counter and take a $20 bill from the cash register, but it is just as much of a theft to drink half of a soda and fill it back up again." See CAFETERIA, page 4 Senatorial candidate visits UVCC Cynthia C. Pulsipher Senior News Editor As Doug Anderson recently prepared to speak on a radio talk show, the program's host encouraged listeners to call in with questions, stating that if Anderson were elected the public would probably never hear from him again. Feeling that elected officials are more interested in pay, perks and privileges, Anderson is challenging Wayne Owens for a position on the Democratic ticket in this fall's U.S. Senate elections, he told political science students on Thursday. Anderson visited Carl Yeager's political science class to campaign for student support and share his Democratic platform. Anderson is up against tough opposition. Winning 30 percent of the vote at the Democratic nominating convention in June may not be as difficult as getting predominantly Republican Utah voters to elect a Democrat in November. "Utah can't get a fair shake in Congress because it doesn't have a Democrat to fight with influence in Washington," said Anderson. "We're considered a Republican state by a Democratically controlled Congress and we're getting shafted for that See ANDERSON, page 4 'Geographic' photographer shows porfolio Thomas Epting Editor in Chief A world-traveled "National Geographic" photographer spoke to UVCC students,shared a four-projector slide show, and counseled up-and-coming artists on the photography market. Wm. Floyd Holdman, a free-lance photographer who has worked "National Geographic" assignments since 1976, attracted students and members of UVCC's visual arts club, CogitoErgoPingo, to a two-hour long presentation on Monday. Though pulling in a six-figure salary today, Holdman said his start in photogra phy was rough. Before picking up his first big assignment wi th "National Geographi c", he said his mother-in-lawasked, "Why don't you go out and get a real job?" Similarily, when he couldn't pay his telephone bill, a telephone operator said, "If you can't make money at this job, why don't you go out and get a job so that you can pay your bills?" Holdman claimshis monetary success is due to spending only 10 percent of his time shooting and the other 90 percent selling himself and his photography. Holdman's photographic presentation included a 40-minute slideshow called "Windows of Time." Synchronized with music recorded on location, the slideshow depicted several countries and peoples. Holdman also showed several portfolio shots and shared ancedotes about some of the 52 different countries he has visited. He told artists never to give up or un-derprice their work. "One thing I've got that is an essential for a photographer isstick-to-it-tiveness. Even if you're starving, don't tell your clients that; you must maintain a position of power." CogitoErgoPingo sponsored the presentation. Information about the club can be obtained from Verl Morgan, club adviser, at 222-8000 ext. 8256.
