The petition signing, led by Kim Hansen, Doug Worthen and Mark Johnson, was an effort to keep the proposal from going any further than the Board of bers for the state compction in areas such as Human Relations, Sales Manager, Individual Marketing Improvement, Merchandising, Fashion Merchandising, Food Marketing, Finance and Credit, Sales Representative and Advertising. Speakers in the sessions were various business men UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE DISPUTED Regents, who will meet today (Jan. 22) to decide its fate. Hansen and Worthen felt that the main objections to the proposal were that many students didn't understand "Polytechnic" and that there from local surroundings and the state. DECA officers would like to thank Smith's Food King, Albcrtsons and Allen's Super Save for providing refreshment during the break and Chuck-O-Rama for the special consideration they show- CONT. page 3 was little opportunity for the studentbody to be involved in the search for a name. President Sorenson was more than willing to hear the students complaint and at last report, he indicated that he would prefer to wait until next year for a new name, rather than accept one that would disgruntle the student body. This is not new to the college due to the fact that name changes have been proposed several times in the past, yet never agreed upon. The Board of Regents have been adamant about keeping 'Utah' within the name and keeping 'Community' out. Today's meeting will decide the effectiveness of the student petition and if it succeeds, the victory will hopefully improve the studentbody's attitude towards involvement.
