UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE AT PROVO Beginning this week the Utah Technical College will commence a Student Forum Program in room M-210 at noon, Tuesday, February 8, 1972. Free Forum is designed to give the student a means of voicing and resolving those problems which keep him from being a better student. The philosophy that will hopefully act as a guide line for the Forum operation that as students many of us run Mo problems from time to time which hinder us in our efforts to be effective students. Often many of us are able to resolve these problems without difficulty, but just as often we find ourselves ineffective in our solo efforts. However, if several of us were to get together and "put our heads together" the potential for finding effective solutions to our problems is obviously enlarged. Forum will be an assembly of those who care, not only for themselves, but for others as well and want to co-operatively work with one another to improve the scholastic environment of themselves and the school. Meet The Missing Link 'My ancestors were not apes.' Don't think so, eh? Well, you could be right. But according to the following quote from TIME LIFE's 1972 NATURE SCIENCE ANNUAL, scientists in general are convinced that you'd be wrong "This is Australopithecus afri-canus, the ancient hominid, or almost-man, that most scientists have concluded is the long-sought "missing link" the creature that bridged the gap between humans and the common ancestor of both men and apes. Some of the evidence for this conclusion became available in 1971, but even more significant is the way existing knowledge fell into place to give a more complete picture of Australopithecus and his world. Much yet remains to be learned. Broad gaps of millions of years can still be filled in only by speculation, and some of the freshest findings introduce new and puzzling contradictions; yet the weight of what was already clear has convinced nearly all scientists that Australopithecus was man's ancestor." Man's ancestor. What was he like? It all started inl924whenRay-mond Dart, anatomy professor at the University of Witwatersrand Or The Forum will not be operated by the school administration or studentbody officers but rather it will depend absolutely and entirely upon the actions of its members (the students) for its effectiveness and existence. It is not in any way aimed at challenging the policies of the administration or studentbody officers but rather, it is hoped that the Forum will act as an aid to the school authorities in their desires to make UTC a better school. The Free Forum will hopefully be dedicated to the assumption that as students we have many problems both circumstantial, and intentional which can only be eliminated as we co-operatively work to find effective solutions. It has been said "You are either part of the problem or part of the solution Free Forum is dedicated to the idea of being part of the solution. If you care about being a better student and about helping others become better students, attend the Free Forum. in South Africa, discovered the first traces of Australopithecus africanus (the name means "southern ape of Africa.") But Professor Dart was. conVinced that his find was a hominid and not an ape. Science in general rejected his claim, then believing the fossils to be some form of ape. But since then, a number of similar facts have turned up. About four years ago, Bryan Patterson, professor of vertebrate psychology at Harvard, unearthed and tested a portion of Australopithecus jawbone discovered in deposits containing lava from a long-extinct volcano in northwest Kenya, Africa. Lava contains a radioactive form of potassium, which deposits a gas (argon) after it cools in the rock. Older volcanic rock crystals means more argon, and the argon can be measured. Tests revealed that the lava deposit Australopithecus was found in was at least 3.5 million years old. Other African expeditions prior to Patterson's have turned up similar discoveries. In 1959, Dr. and Mrs. S. B. Leakey, paleoanthro-pologists of Kenya, unearthed an Australopithecus skull, other bone pieces, and some stome stools, all determined to be 1.75 million years; in '69 their son Richard made a similar dis- "adelotnds Siudont Voho A ttend The Free Maybe that headline should read "Who's in WHO'S WHO at UTC?

Other finds of large quantities of stone tools, fossil bones and teeth in the same area by other scientists reveal that Australopithecus was a distinct hominid not an ape. Paleoanthropology has combined evidence to give us some idea of what Australopithecus was like. He was quite short-only four feet at tallest and weighed only 60 to 70 pounds. His jaw was shallow and his forehead low. Portions of fossil pelvic and leg bones show that he could walk upright, and that he may likely have walked using his knuckles. But the most surprising discovery is the size of his brain. Cranial fragments indicate that Austalopithecus had a much larger brain 450 cubic centi- (Continued on Page 3) u mm Forum Tuesday, Room in the book. The selection process is simple.
