However, this scene was not as it had been portrayed in the many fliers and posters passed out around UVSC's campus. There was one main difference. Arguably the most controversial and passionate of the original three speakers dropped out just days before the event took place. "I was disappointed in the debate," UVSC student John-Riley Harper said. "It seems like the main people who are causing the fuss pretty much wimped out and aren't there to represent themselves, and it shows me that they don't really have anything to stand on."

The Clothesline project, developed in 1990, is made up of t-shirts created by survivors of violence or by the loved ones of those who did not survive. Its goal is to raise awareness and stir the viewers to action in an effort to end the epidemic of violence. The emotions expressed on the shirts are very intense and often disturbing. However, it is much more disturbing to actually live with the reality of violence. The shirts express feelings of fear and pain, along with love and healing. One shirt says, "I was raped by someone who was sup- l n rni UUltoGUU iGlJOtQ IS'G UISI 15 the debate on the Moore Hannity issue, but withdrew for an undisclosed reason. "I don't get him.

There was a reverent silence around the quad broken only by the sounds made to signify violence happening in the U.S. A gong was struck every 10 seconds to indicate every time a woman is being battered. A whistle blew every minute to indicate a reported rape. A bell rang to indicate that a woman has been killed II "in n n uvuu in a violent attack. Three to four women are killed by their lovers or husbands each day in the U.S. The faces of students showed feelings of hurt and sadness as they read the shirts.

The Clothesline Project provides powerful evidence that domestic violence does exist, even in Utah County. It allows survivors to break the silence-this project is a tribute to them. u ui? oIirenEieit vmm reception By Joseph Gibbs News Writer On Thursday night students, faculty and community members gathered in UVSC's grand ballroom for a special presentation of "Fahrenheit 911", sponsored by Reel Film, a campus film club. The event drew about 150 people who had either seen or were curious about Michael Moore's controversial documentary, which is very close to the heart of the uproar surrounding Moore's impending visit. Students sat while local filmmaker, Steve Green-street, showed scenes from his documentary about the MooreHannity controversy, which is currently in production. Moore's film was then screened to a captive audience. Audible laughter was heard during scenes depicting the Bush administration as members of the cast of Bonanza, while stunned silence attended the scene depicting the horror of September 1 1th, arguably the most powerful scene Moore has ever set to film. UUSC has gone postal By Sam Garfield News Writer Some students may have noticed a new addition to the student center in the form of a United States post office. The post office opened at the beginning of the semester and is located in SC 104, right across the hall from Campus Connection. The post office is actually a "contract unit" of the main post office in Orem and is part of Campus Connection. "We actually did all the postal stuff before," Trianna Young said, who has worked part time for Campus Connection in the post office since late summer, "but this new facility will increase our business." "I don't think people realize what we do here," she said, "we can send packages anywhere in the world just like the main post office." Having the post office on campus is "good for faculty too, not just students. We get a lot of faculty in here," she 01 1 eois UVSC student, Jeremy Powell, had never seen any of Moore's films. "It was very entertaining, I like how he showed both concern for America's problems, as well as respect and emotion for the soldiers." Others such as Janelle Erwin had seen other Moore films such as "Bowling for Columbine". "This film is definitely biased for those who are uneducated to the issues, and I think it is important that people see it before they vote." After the film, a handful of students and faculty met to discuss the film. One young man from Australia said, "It reinforces a lot of the negative stereotypes people outside the United States have toward America." Content, however, was not the only thing discussed. Several people commented on the style, camera work and various techniques that they saw as effective tools of storytelling. "Moore's use of sound was incredible," said one student, "just the black screen with the screaming and sound of crushing glass and concrete was so powerful." said. The new post office offers students a convenient stop to get stamps, send packages and purchase packaging materials. "We actually do everything a regular post office does except money orders," Young said. But, "the most popular thing is stamps." "People can come in here and buy one stamp, or 1 ,000," Kyle Cannon said, the assistant manager of the post office. "We've sold both." In addition, "a lot of students think we charge extra fees, but we charge the same as the regular postal offices. There are no extra fees, and all packages go out the same day; there are no delays," Cannon said. Having a post office on campus can save time from going to the regular post office. "The lines aren't as long here, and it's so convenient," said Andrew Stone, a behavioral science major, who enjoys having all the amenities of a regular post office on campus.
