Sunday, April 6, 1975, THE HERALD, Provo, Utah-Page 15 TESTING A NEW diesel simulator unit at Utah Technical college at Provo, is David Pulver of Provo, who is a student in professional driving. Ted Lockhart, an instructor in professional driving is at the controls of the simulator unit. The unit can duplicate from a stationary position, driving conditions which the student drivers will encounter on the road. For instance by initiating drag from the controls, the student has to gear up as he would have to do when going up a hill. Utah Tech to Conduct Truck Driver Improvement Course Utah Technical College at Provo will offer a truck driver improvement class beginning Friday in room S217. It will continue each Tuesday and Thursday from 7 to 10 p.m. for four weeks. The class is designed to improve the skills of drivers already employed who wish to learn more about truck driving and operations. Expert instructors from the Utah Tech faculty will conduct the class and training sessions. Actual behind-the-wheel instruction plus classroom lecture and theory will be combined in the course. A distinctive feature, obtainable no where else in this area — because Utah Tech has the only piece of equipment in question — will be training on a special truck-simulator constructed last summer by 'Administrator of Year' Honor Awarded by BYU Gale Wilson, city manager of Fairfield, Calif., who has been active in city management for the past 21 years, was given the "Administrator - of - the - Year" award Friday by the Masters of Public Administration Association at Brigham Young University.

Lindsay, director of the Bureau of Community Development at the University of Utah. Previous recipients of the award are Governor Calvin L. Rampton; Neal Maxwell, commissioner of education of the IDS Church, and Dr. Mark Cannon, administrative assistant to the U.S. Supreme Court. Mr. Wilson, a graduate of BYU, has been instrumental in California in strengthening the relatively new professional position in government.

In addition to his governmental administrative activities, he is a stake president in the LDS Church.

This equipment allows standing-still truck-driver training in a truck whose motor and gears are hooked up to special equipment on the back of the vehicle. Without moving, and under the constant eye of the instructor, all driving conditions including load factors and shifting are simulated by the special equipment. It is believed to be one of the few pieces of training equipment of its kind in the nation. The equipment gives the same training as Utah Tech's well-known drive-o-trainers in use for years in driver training — except that the unit is much larger and more complicated to simulate conditions encountered in driving big trucks. Social Worker Organization Formed Here A new association of Utah County social workers has been organized, with Ronald L. Listen, a member of the Social Services staff at Utah State Training School, as president. Assisting Mr. Listen are Ronald B. Kelly, vice president, and Rosanne Ricks, secretary. The association met at the Eldred Center in Provo and the subject for discussion was "An Overview of Services Offered by the Mountainlands Community Action Agency." The association is for all social • workers in Utah County, said Mr. Listen. There are no dues. Luncheon sessions will be held every two months. A host agency will present a facet of its'specific agency at each meeting, as it relates to the social work profession. The organization was founded to offer professional interaction in social contact with other members and interested social workers are invited to participate.
