Page 2-THE HERALD, Prove, Utah, Tuesday, April 8. 1975 Provo Airport Panel Named The Provo City Commission has reorganized its airport advisory board with the appointment of five new members as part of a move to revitalize the body. City Orders Title Suit On Hanger The Provo City attorney has been instructed to bring a suit to determine title to an airport hangar which recently was sold to a private party for $6,500. The problem is, the city claims title to the facility and claims the hangar was incorrectly sold. The attorney explained to city fathers that a number of years ago, the city leased space at the airport to Davis Construction Company on the understanding that eventually the hangar erected on that space would become property of the city. According lo the official lease period, the hangar became the property of Provo City in 1968, City Attorney Glen Ellis told the commissioners. Since that time, the original leasee died and the hangar was included in his estate and was sold. Subsequently the facility went to tax sale and more recently it was purchased by Savage Bros. Construction. Mr. Ellis told commissioners that the only way to determine who had correct tile to the facility would be through a friendly law suit. Commissioners approved of the plan and asked the attorney to file suit. The airport board had not met for considerable time and the commissioners moved to replace existing members with new ones. The old ordinance provided for a five member advisory group each serving four years. One member is to be appointed to represent the airport's fixed base operators. The seat is to be rotated every year between the airport's fixed operators. Airport Manager David Gunn explained there had been some feeling expressed that a fixed base operator could not be totally objective about the airport. He disagreed with the view that this would prevent him from serving the city effectively. "These men are good citizens and are very interested in the community," he said adding that the urgent needs of the city's airport are best known to the professionals who depend on the facility for their livelihood. "As airport manager the operation of that facility is only one of my assignments," he said. "There is no way I can know all that goes on out there and when I have a question I pick up the phone and ask one of them." The commissioners have been asked by a newly organized company for permission set up a flying service at the airport. A meeting of the airport board is to be convened late today to discuss the matter prior to the commissioner hearing the proposal publicly at an 8 p.m. hearing tonight in the commission chambers at 351 West Center St. The commissioners invited Wayne Hillier, Stewart Walker, Jack Pearson, Lowell Christensen, and Roger Wilkes to serve on the board. BYU to Present Annual Communications Honors Five meritorious service awards will be presented to leading professionals in the fields of communications at Thursday's annual awards program of the Brigham Young University Communications Department. Top students among the 811 majors in the department also will receive recognitions in the form of scholarships, internships and other awards, according to E. A. Jerome, assistant professor and chairman of the program. It will be held in the multi-purpose area of the Smith Family Living Center, beginning at7:30p.m. Awards in Speech Communication will be included for the first time this year, Professor Jerome said, because six faculty members and 175 students from that field became part of the Communications Department as of Jan. Represented in this area will achievements in forensics and inter-personal communications. The meritorious service awards in mass communications will recognize achievements by professionals in journalism, advertising, broadcasting, public relations and the film media. Alumni, friends, and those working in these areas are especially invited to attend, the chairman said. Underground Newsletter Surfaces on X Y' Campus An underground newspaper calling itself the Centennial Free Press appeared in Provo Monday, taking aim at BYU and university President Dallin Oaks. Some of the topics attacked in the four-page, offset paper included BYU "above-the-ear" hair standards, BYU Security, alleged control of the news by the administration, the banning of rock concerts on campus, and general "authoritarian" behavior on the part of the administration. Other topics receiving jabs under the page headed "Brigham's Barbs" were some faculty members, the Daily Universe (school newspaper), and BYU Security's alleged "homosexual squad," which supposedly attempts to arrest deviates in the school's bathrooms through entrapment. On the front of the paper was BYU's log for its centennial with the 'Y' replaced by a clenched fist, a commonly used symbol of dissident groups in the 70's. The paper expected denunciation from President Oaks, but his comment was, "I had a good laugh over it. I've been looking for a sign of spring, and I guess this is it." He said he didn't take the newspaper seriously. Dallas Burnett, head of the BYU journalism department, commented, "I have no objection to an undergrond paper, an alternative voice, but it should be more responsible." None of those associated with the underground paper identified themselves. There were no by-lines or masthead, which traditionally identifies personnel responsible for the publication. Orem Citizens Ask for Sewer WARMING UP for a production number which will be part of the Miss Orem Pageant are contestants Pam Skeen, Lori Flygard and Holly Hudman. The pageant is scheduled for April 19 at 7 p.m., one-half hour earlier than usual. It will be held at Orem High School auditorium. TWO Accidents Home Improvement Said Caused ^ . . • By suck Roads Co/ifesf Announced Two accidents occurred at about the same spot within hours of each other Monday in Provo, according to Provo police. The accidents were on the viaduct at about 700 South on University Ave. One occurred at 6:58 a.m., and the second was reported at 8 a.m. Both were caused by slippery road conditions, police said. In the first accident, two women were injured when their car was struck by a vehicle spinning out of control.

City Expecting Petition Asking Motorbike Ban A group of Edgemont residents plan to present a petition at tonight's 7:30 p.m. Provo City Commission meeting, asking that motorcycles be banned from the foothills east of Edgemont. Today the city received a letter from the manager of East Lawn Memorial Hills, complaining that motorcycle noise disturbs the tranquility of the cemetery. Commissioner E. Odell Miner said the letter is one of many similar complaints received by the city. The grouper will dig a hole in the sand and change colors to blend with its surroundings for protection. 30<t off Basket Published every afternoon Monday through Friday and Sunday morning by The Daily Herald, 1555 North 200 W.

The leaders of the county board of Realtors report that the contest is designed to promote the bicentennial spirit in communities of Utah Valley. Homeowners are urged to submit for consideration any property within Utah County which they propose to improve. Properties will be photographed in their "before" condition from the exterior on or before May 5, at which time improvements may be started, Realtor officials stated. Work is to be completed by July 24th. Then "after" photographs will be made and the winner will be announced during the first week in August. The winner is to be presented with $500 for a family vacation. County board of Realtor officials stress the thought that every contestant will win whether or not he receives the prize as his labor will be richly rewarded in the increased value of his property. A supply of entry blanks is being mailed to all member real estate firms of the county Board of Realtors. The contest is not open to licensed real estate agents. Entries must be in the hands of the Make American Better Committee by April 30. The mailing address for the committee is 460 West 800 North. About 80 signatures appeared on a petition from Carterville area residents in Orem who are asking that the city program money for a sewer in the area. Septic tanks currently are used. The residents asked quick action on the sewer installation and suggested money be budgeted this year for the project. The petition further stated, Provo's Old Ambulance Sale Asked Provo City officials are giving serious consideration to a request from officials at Boulder, Garfield County, (population about 100), to let the small town buy the city's trade-in ambulance. The city has been offered $1,310 for the unit as a trade-in on a new ambulance. Boulder has indicated it has a critical need for a new ambulance and it would be willing to buy Provo's trade-in for the trade-in price. The Provo Commissioners had no objection to the proposal and said they were even anxious to provide the unit to another community if the city's fire chief would assure them it was safe and servicable. Chief Stan Brown said Provo has been using the older ambulance as a standby unit to back up the main ambulances. He said radio control equipment and all but built-in items have been removed. The city officials authorized the city's purchasing agent to negotiate a deal with Boulder. The tidal shoreline of Louisiana is 7,721 miles long. "that inasmuch as we have been paying taxes since 1957 and a portion of that tax has been used to provide sewer service to the people of Orem, and we have not received that service, said sewer be installed without expense to the people of Carterville." They suggested the sewer serve "all the people of Carterville from 800 South Street to the Provo line." The petition said verbal promises have been made for installation of the sewer and suggested "that these promises now be fulfilled." Petitioners also said that sewer installation should not be contingent on the completion of the large Watts Development proposed in the recently-annexed area adjacent to 1200 South. City Manager Earl Wengreen said the project will appear high on his priority list of items to be recommended for inclusion in the fiscal 1976 budget. He said, however, he cannot predict what the outcome will be following council action on the budget. Boat Stereo Said Missing Lamar Fillmore of 303 S. State St., Orem, reported to police a stereo valued at $40 had been removed from his boat. The boat had been kept in the garage during the winter, according to the report. Wallet, Minus Cash, Returned to Owner Donna Cordner of 129 S. State, Orem, reported to police that her wallet, which contained up to $60 cash, had been removed from her car Monday while at an Orem business. Police report stated the wallet, minus the money, was later recovered at 1700 S. 800 E., Orem.
