Westminster College ff fYOrCr Volume 30, Number 1 1 Friday, November 26, 1982 Salt Lake City, Utah FINANCIAL REPORTS DELAYED Expenses Questioned Past-D- ue Legislative Assembly meetings on November 6 and November 18 echoed similar questions and concerns: How much money has ASWC spent this year? Why havent past'due bills been paid for the 1981-8- 2 academic year, and what is owed? Trudy Rocha, ASWC treasurer, was present at the November 6 budget hearing, but did not have specific expenditure information for items questioned. She planned to attend the November 18 meeting to present ASWCs financial report, but did not hear her alarm clock until 8:45 a.m., almost an hour after the 7:00 a.m. meeting had adjourned. mid-semest- er Rocha says she really has no excuse for having missed the November 18 meeting. She said she intends to contact Assembly members individually to apologize and give them a copy of the financial statement, which she does have prepared, before the next meeting of the Assembly. The financial statement Rocha has completed itemizes 3 expenditures. It does not include carry-ove- r income and expenses from the 1981-8- 2 a second year 1982-8- Tragedy Strikes in Converse Hall dead! The Nearly half the group of twenty four " curtain falls. Westminster players prepare King Lear. Never more apropos, the name Courage Theater applies as the cast members muster all they have for the production of perhaps the most difficult of Shakespeares item of concern to Assembly members. According to Rocha, approximately $7,500 surplus was available to pay past-du- e expenses from the 1981-8- 2 academic year when she took office this spring. Past-du- e bills may total more than that amount. Rocha said she didnt know until October that bills owed the Office would pay the Jostens bill within 30 days, but Rocha has not been advised of final payment. Dearing does not recall the date or specific amount paid which were included in Blacks note. She believes the last billing was for a little over $7,000, which included approximately $300 in interest charges. Dearing said she was advised by Jostens local representative that the interest charges would be reversed if the Business Office would contact the representative and explain why payment was delayed. Dearing said she thought she had made this offer known to Black and that she hopes final payment did not include the interest charges. Rocha has been advised of two recent payments on the Murray Eagle account, the first for $850 and the second for $292, by Joan Weiler in the Business Office. Rocha says the reason these matters arent formalized financial report requested by Assembly in the 1981-8- 2 members involves problems in reconciling computer reports with treasurers records. She says when she does complete the report, she wants to make sure its accurate. Murray Eagle (approximately $2,800 for the 1981-8- 2 Parson account) and Jostens (between $6,500 - $7,000 for the 1981-8- 2 Etosian), for which she signed check requests in May, were not paid by the College Business Office. Rocha indicated that shes not blaming the Business Office, since there was a question regarding their need for invoice copies with the check requests. However, the Business Office did agree to pay 50 percent of Jostens interest charges on the Etosian bill. Anne Sanders, editor of this years newspaper, said she thinks the amount originally owed the Murray Eagle was closer to $4,000. Sheri Dearing, editor of this years Etosian, says she was recently advised by a note from Mike Black, ASWC president, that Jostens bill has been paid in full.

The members of the stage crew are the unsung heroes of the theater, said Lynn Baker, director, Including the actors, we have fifty people working on this production. Since Courage Theater seldom performs Shakespeare, many of the props and costumes from the period have had to be scrounged up or made. Alicia Dechart, who plays Cordelia, said The set and costumes from Lear have had a lot of time and effort put into them, right down to the last thread, and it shows! The set is often as important as the performance itself, and without the help of the stage crew, Lear could never go on. The Unsung Heroes of the Courage Theater production of King Lear are: Karen McOmber Steve Dewey Tammy Latimer Margaret Chapman David Lees Theresa Giles Lora Tweedy Ken Lowengrub Elkins Cindy Dominguez Eva Karl Thompson Kevin Baird Bill Brubaker Lorie Giles Annette Lanker Rob Kcwley Alyssa Albin Charts Johnson Gary Wright, Duke of Cornwall; slain by the sword.

Charlie Blue, Edgar, Legitimate Heir of Gloucester. Jeff Bethers, Curan, A Courier. Stephanie Panos, Old Tenant of Gloucesters. Dick Shepherd, The Doctor. One of the dead members of the cast had this to say, I heard last summer we were going to do Lear. I was very apprehensive. But now that I can see it coming together I am really excited. Its going to work! After another resurrection, one of the victims said, I probably would never have gotten the opportunity to perform Shakespeare had it not been for Westminsters Courage Theater. For that reason alone, its worth the struggle. But thats what courage is all about. i x Stage Crew The Unsung Heroes hammers after The curtain rises and falls only many have done the same.
