fRADEWIND VOL. 4, NO. 6 UTAH TECHNICAL COLLEGE OF PROVO NOVEMBER 17, 1975 tin Fire Freak A very serious problem oc-cured at UTC recently. Three fires have been started in the men's rest room in the south wing of the building. Vess Clark, superintendant of buildings and grounds, feels that these fires have been set by a prankster rather than an arsonist. One of the reasons is that arson type fires occur at night. These fires have been started during the day. Nevertheless, they will be classified as arson he said. The school will prosecute if they find who has been setting these fires. According to Grant Walker, fireman training, Utah Technical College at Provo, fires which involve the burning of buildings other than dwelling houses, would be considered second degree arson, whether the property be Calendar Nov. 19-Nov. 19- Nov. 20-Kov. 29- INTRA at UTC longs to the person setting the fire or someone else; it does not matter. The penalty' for this act is one to ten years in the state penitentiary. A school fire is usually the very worst fire in this category because of the large number of students involved, and is usually one of the easiest of the arson crimes to obtain a conviction Walker explained. Erma Reynolds, a secretary in the Security Office commented, "As a prank, this could be very expensive to the taxpayers, because our school is supported by our tax dollars. We should maintain and keep our buildings in good order rather than destroy them. There has also been damage done in the men's rest room in the north wing, where fists were pushed through the ceiling. This will have to be fixed. Its a shame we don't take more pride in our school and surroundings." of Events MURALS RODEO INSTITUTE DANCE 6:30 - 10:00 - PROVO SEMINARY PRE-SKI-SON DANCE AT ICE HOUSE - 8:00 to 11:00 BASKETBALL -UTC vs. UTAH STATt AT OKEM HIGH SCHOOL. PWP Club By Margo Passey A chapter of Parents Without Partners for the Provo area is being organized through Utah Technical College at Provo, according to Bill Stuver, Student Awareness Chairman on UTC's Student Council. WHAT IS PARENTS WITHOUT PARTNERS? Parents without Partners, Inc. the parent organization states itself as being an International, non-profit, none-sectarian, educational, organization which is devoted to the mental health, welfare, and interests of the single parent and their children. PWP, Inc., was started in New York in 1958, and now has chapters in all 50 states in the Union, in Canada, in Australia, and, just recently, one in Germany.PWP, Inc., operates on a volunteer basis. A 11 the services and activities are run on a nonprofit, volunteer basis. In the Preamble to the Constitution of Parents Without Partners, Inc., the primary objective of the organization is stated as being: ". . .to bring our children to healthy maturity, with the full sense of being loved and accepted as persons and with the same prospects for normal adulthood as children who matured with their two parents together. . ." IS THERE A NEED FOR A PWP CHARTER IN THIS AREA? According to Dr. Wayne Kearney, Dean of Students, Anne Cox, Director of the Family Living Program for UTC, John Rocker, CHEERLEADER j ' IWy TRY-OUT5 . i YZpb 4 . J v SEVERAL ADMINISTRATORS and students have noted that a certain group of guys gather at the stairwell by the north entrance of the main wing and look up girl's dresses to Organize Soon main instigator for the club, and Tom Hover, Advisor to all the clubs at UTC, Bill Stuver, Student Awareness Chairman on the Student Council, YES THERE IS. These people, being in a position to see the needs of the students at UTC, have stated their opinions that there is a definite need for a special club which is geared to deal with the special problems of the single parent. In an editorial addressed to all single parents in PWP, .Inc., Ms. Barabara Chase, Editor of "The Single Parent" States the problems of a single parents anJ the reason why she feels that PWP, Inc., can help. 'It's easy to feel that we have special problems, special circumstances, unique backgrounds that separate us from the people around us, because that's true. And it's easy to focus on our past lives, on the how-we-got-here parts of our lives, and to wish we'd made other ' decisions, chosen other partners in the first place, dne thingsdifferently--and better-than we have done. If we persist in this sort of thinking, we only become more and more isolated, and life just gets lonelier and lonelier. What we are trying to say here is that it's really much less important how we got where we are today than that we are here; that we have arrived at this point in time and that the challenge of making today a productive, satisfying one for ourselves is what's important." The ties that hold us together are not dependent on whether you were widowed and I was divorced and she was never married, but on our need to make the best possible use that we can of our abilities and our talents, beginning right now. Whatever the reasons, we all find ourselves faced with life on our own, with the decisions to make, problems to resolve, fears to be coped with, and only ourselves to lean on. Nothing in our background or training ever prepared us for this situation. . .we are literaUy playing it by ear. Raised to expect to be married and live happily ever after, it's important for us to remember that, no matter how we arrived at our present circumstances, what matters is now, and what we do with it." So. . .PWP, Inc., is geared to help 'put away last year's mistakes and plan for some successes today. . ." WHO IS ELIGIBLE? To quote the Bylaws of PWP, Inc.,: "To be eligible for membership in PWP, a person must be the parent of one or more living sons or daughters, and be single by reason of death, divorce, separation, or never married. . ." Custody of the children is not a factor of eligibility.HOW CAN YOU GET MORE INFORMATION? If you are interested in join-in PWP, or want more information, call John Rocker, Phone 489-7488, after 4 p.m. as they walk up the stairs. They consider that this is obscene and that girls should be able to walk up stairs without the stares.
