i r Volume 9 Number 18 "Family George Tanner will depart this year from his usual custom of putting on a hilarious old melodrama at Utah Technical College at Provo-Orem. Instead, in late March he will stage a serious drama, with a recognized community actress playing the lead and other experienced performers in supporting roles. On March 20, 21 and 23. in the Student Center of Utah Tech's Orem campus, he will produce "Family Portrait," a recognized biblical drama, with Jody Hen-strom playing the lead role of Mary, mother of Christ.

He himself staged "Family Portrait" some 25 yearrs ago at Utah State University in Logan. Many years ago it was a hit as pari of Brigham Young University's drama season. Departing from inexperienced student actors as in the past, Tanner has assembled a professional cast for this effort.

Student, Work Analysis A University of Utah professor says there is almost no correlation between the grades a student gets in college and his on-the-job performance. Dr. Calvin Taylor, professor of psychology, said he drew the conclusion after studying 20 years of job performance by college graduates. The research showed that people rated by their employers and peers as excellent workers did not necessarily get high marks in school, Taylor said. But he said students who excel in extra-curricular activities often turn out to be the best workers. He recommended that employers pay more attention to outside activities listed on resumes by job applicants, and said the way a person relates to his peers or potential customers is a better yardstick to use in filling a job than a quick glance at academic achievements. Student Application for student body offices are now available in the Student Center Office. All applications are due on April 6th, followed by a meeting for all candidates on April 7th. Elections begin April 13th, with primaries on the 20th and the final March 23, 1981 T Elections election and dance on Wednesday, April 22.
