Orem Campus Pillaged by Motorcyclist The new UTC-Orem campus is being raped by destructive joyriders. Owners of motorcycles and four-wheel drives are tearing up the lawns, running over new sod, and breaking off sprinkler heads, according to maintenance workers at the new campus. They believe most of the destruction is done at night, when there is no one around for surviellance. "It's a real shame," commented one maintenance worker. Cob Boswell, working on Maintenance Repair, feels that this destruction may be the cause of upbringing. "Some of them have no responsibility for property at all," he said. Mr. Boswell feels a solution to the problem might be more security to deter these vandals. Eric Frame, director of Public Safety, who feels that the destruction is "just malicious mischief," warned, "We are going to prosecute everyone we find, and we have the full cooperation of the Orem Police Department." ;?

Rampton, and former UTC-P Treasurer Sylvia Anderson will recieve honorary associate degrees of applied science in special ceremonies at UTC Graduation. The ceremonies, to be held June 2, will honor the Governor of 12 years for his help in the development of the UTC Mrs. Anderson, will be honored for her 34 years of service to the college. Former Governor Rampton made Utah history as the only man to be elected governor for three consecutive four-year terms. He declined to run for a fourth term. It was during his administration, which ended when Governor Matheson took over in January of this year, that Utah Technical College at Provo made some of its greatest strides-all with his support. His endorsement of vocational - technical education in general has long been one of his strongest philosophies. MB 1 It was during Rampton 's regime that the spacious 185-acre campus in Orem was purchased, as a far-sighted move, and held for the further development of the school. Years later the governor supported the legislative action which resulted in appropriations sufficient to bring the campus to it's present stage. Mrs. Anderson joined the fledging staff of UTC-P when it was only six months old in 1942 as a war manpower training center. She began as secretary to President Wilson W. Sorensen, who was then purchasing agent of the institution. She went from secretary to bookkeeper and in 1949 took over the duties of purchasing agent when Mr. Sorensen assumed the presidency of the institution. In the same year she had the duties of treasurer and controller added to her job. As the institution grew, a separate controller and purchasing agent were provided v iA: and she became treasurer with the over-all supervision of operations in this area. As the person holding the most responsible financial position in the institution, she has been a vital and stabilizing force in its growth from makeshift buildings and barracks to a two-campus, multi-million dollar institution. Mrs. Anderson's story coincides that of Utah Tech, from a few hundred students to a studentbody approaching 4,000, turning out hundreds each year skilled in a wide variety of trades and vocations. She saw its first formal graduation exercises in 1949, after it was established in 1941 and eight years later held it first graduation after formally becoming the Central Utah Vocational School. On June 2, at its 28th graduation ceremonies, the college will award her an honorary degree in gratitude for her lifetime of service to it.
