However, there are some aspects of the anthropology program that are unique to SUSC.

According to Dr. Thompson, students at the University of Utah cannot do field work until their junior year and those at the University of California until they begin their graduate study. Yet the phasing out of the anthropology program Will affect the students the most, Terry Morgan, a sophomore majoring in medicine say, I dont think they have a right to take it out of the pro gram because of the good aspects in the program itself. In their surveys, many artifacts have been found. Its a lot of work but exciting to find things thousands of years old, she says. Theres so many places in our immediate area to go such as Zions, and Redcliffs. Other schools sometimes have to travel a lot. I just think its a real loss to the school to do away .with courses in which students can learn about the history of man. ODriscoll In the final Executive Council meeting of the year, held Monday morning, it was suggested that the terms of office be changed for elected student officials and that a definite set of school colors be decided upon. One suggestion made about a new term of office was that a candidate would be elected in April and then not take office until the next Fall quarter. That way an official-elec- t could watch someone in office before actually taking over. Also, everyone in the meeting agreed that the school colors were not consistent around campus or town and a definite set of colors should be used by everyone. All of the publicity that leaves the college contains black and red and thats not our school colors, said Public Relations Director Jackie Clegg. There are so many shades of blue and orange used that you dont know which are the true school colors, said Attorney General Bob Johnson. Faculty adviser Dave Taylor noted The colors we have are hard to match when purchasing materials. The council also heard preliminary plans for reworking the election bylaws. Johnson told the council a committee will be .discussing and revising the constitutions election rules that had caused problems with this years election.
