Page 6-THE HERALD, Provo. Utah, Sunday. April 13, 1975 Local Officials Seek Mrs. Jense Ouster Members of the Utah County Council of Governments have told a State Bicentennial Commission representative in no uncertain terms that Utah County governments cannot function with the Bicentennial program unless a Pleasant Grove Woman is removed from the chairmanship of the three-county, regional committee. The representatives of local city governments addressed their remarks to Milton Weilenmann, a member of Gov. Calvin L. Ramplon's staff who represented the State Bicentennial Commission as spokesman. The remarks concerned Sara Jense who was appointed by the governor to serve from this area on the State Bicentennial Commission. Mrs. Jense subsequently was asked by the state commission to chair a local committee which is to recommend how a total of $349,000 in Bicentennial funds should be allocated to proposed projects in Utah, Wasatch and Summit Counties. COG representatives invited members of the State Bicentennial Commission to the meeting to explain their objections to Mrs. Jensc's actions as the three-county chairman. Mrs. Jense said she had not been invited. Mayors' Letter A main prompting factor in the meeting was a letter, signed by nearly all of the mayors of Utah County, which stated: » "There appears to be no need for representation on the committee other than Mrs. Jense as she refuses to recognize any rules and procedures for accepting motions and acting upon recommendations of other members of the committee. As a result of this particular problem, one appointed representative on tier committee has already resigned and others are very disenchanted. "Also, projects are being taken on a 'first come, first serve' basis in spite of the fact that many committee members feel that it would be better to receive all of the projects and make the recommendations at that time based on individual merit However, Mrs. Jense has overruled the consensus of the committee members...." After taking note of the objections cited by the city officials, Mr Weilenmann said, "She was appointed by the governor (to the state commission), and it is not my place to tell him she is no longer serving on the commission.'' Meet With Mrs. Jense Mr. Weilenmann added, however, that he would meet with Mrs Jense, with the permission of city officials, and that he would report back by Tuesday Sanlaquin Mayor 0. Doyle Crook pointed out he received only two days notice of the recent district Bicentennial meeting chaired by Mrs. Jense and that she indicated she would make all the decisions. "Never had 1 sat in on a meeting where the atmosphere was so tense," he added. Mayor Crook then stated that Mrs. Jense claimed credit for forming the district committee and that local elected officials had no say on the formation of the committee. Mayor Beck emphasized that five names were submitted by the three-county MAG agency to the state commission for a member to represent the district committee and that Sara Jense was not one of them. Commissioner Miner explained that the county council officials want committees from the three counties to form the review committee. He added, "I have nothing personal against her; I don't think she is ready for the assignment." State Sen. Ernest Dean said, "I suggest, after we talk to Sara, we sec if we can add greater representation to the state level from down here. This is quite a burden to place on one person." COG members wound up the meeting by reaffirming a prior resolution that funds for projects be awarded on a population basis. Sara Jense Replies \n Bicentennial Rift Antagonism from local officials and attempts by the officials to overrule the district bicentennial committee have led to the problems which prompted local mayors to seek the resignation of committee chairman Sara Jense, according to Mrs. Jense. Mrs. Jense cited three problems she faced when she was appointed. The first was that "elected officials were furious at the amount of money appropriated to Utah County." She said the officials seemed to believe less should have gone to Salt Lake and more to Utah County. The district was allocated $349,000. Another problem was a decision on the state level that the money was not to be apportioned on a population basis to every city and town in a district. The state had directed that projects should be something "long lasting, something entirely significant." A smaller town like Springville, with an art museum, in all fairness then could taken a larger share of the money, she explained. Letter Tells Rule She cited a letter sent from the state commission last July which outlined the rule. At a Council of Governments meeting last Thursday, it was indicated the state has changed its position on that ruling. However, as late as Friday morning, Mrs. Jense said she was not aware of any change. The third problem which Mrs. Jense said she faced was that local officials were "furious I was appointed" because they had not been consulted. She was quick to add, however, that other members of the committee were named by the mayors. "1 had not sought the appointment. 1 simply received a call from the state committee saying 1 was appoimeu, aim i was willing to serve," She said. She was, at that time, a member of the State Bicentennial Commission. The additional appointment was as chairman of the district committee. She said the first words she heard from any elected official were those of Mayor Malcom Beck who said, "We don't want you. We don't know where you cajne from or how you were selected." She charged that money had been available for a year and very little had been done. "The county committee organized by COG met for almost an entire year without approving any projects, she said, noting that the district committee had not been organized at that time. Referring to the conduct of a meeting held at Provo City, she said, "I realized 1 faced the antagonism of local officials who wanted to control the whole thing. "I knew 1 had to be very firm" because the money must be apportioned by July 1 or it will be taken from the district. "I had to get the district moving." Letters To Members Mrs. Jense reported she wrote letters to all members of the district Bicentennial committee informing them she would accept projects for consideration on the agenda until midnight the night before the meeting at Provo. "I had offered to help anyone but felt 1 had to stick to the rules (of the deadline) because the district had been in chaos for so long, "she insisted. All the items on the agenda were considered at the meeting, she said, adding that no one who was on the agenda was cut short since no time limit had been set Mrs. Jense charged that one COG official had, without informing her, sent letters to local officials asking them to appear and telling them projects could be presented there. Lasted Until Midnight "Kven sticking to the agenda we were there until midnight," Mrs. Jense reported, defending her action in not allowing presentations which had not been scheduled by the day before. She said committee members eventually asked that anyone who was not part of the committee leave the room. Another committee member proposed that projects be voted on by secret ballot. The ballots also were counted by members. She emphasized these suggestions had come from oilier committee people and not from herself. She also said that a committee member who resigned did so because he did not have time to serve, not from any animosity toward her.

April 13, 1975, THE HERALD, Provo, Utah -Page 7 Assistant Named To X Y' Development G. Thomas Proctor, who has directed special gift clubs for BYU Annual Giving since 1973, has been named assistant for Special Projects for the Development Office. Mr. Proctor will work with Carl W. Bacon, who directs Special Projects in promoting and coordinating fund raising activities among BYU colleges and other University organizations. He will also have major responsibilities associated with fund raising for the entire IDS Church development effort, including elementary and secondary schools, seminaries and institutes, and health services. "Mr. Proctor contributed importantly to the work of Cougar Club, Karl G. Maeser Associates, and President's Club in his previous position," said Donald T. Nelson, director of the The Development Office. "Consequently, he brings solid experience and expertise to this new, broadened assignment — one with world wide G. THOMAS PROCTOR implications." Before joining BYU, Mr. Proctor was a command supervisor with the Los Angeles Police Department. He retired after 2.1 years of service because of injuries suffered during the apprehension of a sniper. BYU Student Elected National I.K. Chief Emeron Pratt, a senior in accounting at Brigham Young University from Phoenix, Ariz., has been elected national president of the Intercollegiate Knights (IK's), a well-known student service organization. BYU coed Leigh Ann Clark, a sophomore in childhood edcation from Ogden, Utah, was also elected nation Royal Queen for 1975-76 for the organization. Representatives from 13 colleges and universities met at the national convention in Boise, Idaho, at which time Mr. Pratt and Miss Clark were elected. Mr. Pratt will be responsible for coordinating activities of all the chapters of the national organization which is on about 17 campuses across the nation. He said the BYU was selected to host the national convention next year during its Centennial year. The IK's have been doing service projects on the BYU campus since 1947, including distributing programs at athletic events, ushering at concerts in the Marriott Center, lighting the block Y on the mountain several times a year, as well as raising funds for the Harold B. Lee Ijbraryoncampus. Science Group Awards $15,960 to V Y' Student FflffllLV SRVINGS STORE IDAHO FAILS, 10. #13 1765 N. Yfllointoni HI POCATELLO, ID. #15 1030 YillovttOflf HI. David W. Beer, a Brigham Young University senior anthropology student from Pittsburgh, Pa., has been awarded $15,960 by the National Science Foundation to study relationships between economic and social structures of mining and agricultural communities. The grant was made under the NSF "Student-Originated Studies" program which is designed to encourage students to express in creative ways their concerns for society and the environment. More than 700 students throughout the United States are receiving a total of $1.1 million SOS projects this summer. Mr. Beer and 11 other students will conduct studies of mining and farming communities in Utah, Kentucky and North Dakota over the next three and a half months. Utah communities involved in the research are Hiawatha in Carbon County and Emory in Summit County. Results of the research will be made available to state and local governments, Mr. Beer said. As director of the project, Mr. Bids Requested For Re-Roofing Of Courthouse Utah County commissioners are calling for sealed bids for a project to re-roof the County Courthouse, 51 S. University Ave., and the County Health Complex, 1775 S. Dakota Lane, Provo. Bids will be opened Monday, May 12 at 10 a.m. in Room 311 of the County Building. Specifications may be obtained from the County Surveyor. The project represents a major expenditure of funds, according to county officials, since the County Building and the County Health Complex (Eldred Hospital building) are both large structures, the largest owned by the county. Moneychangers HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - Ross Hunter Productions, in association with Paramount Television, has acquired the rights to Arthur Hailey's new novel, "The Moneychangers," and will film it either as a three-hour or six- hour movie for NBC-TV. Hailey's previous best seller, "Airport," was produced as a motion picture by Hunter and Jacque Mapes and became the fourth highest grossing film in Hollywood history. Beer will travel to Washington, D.C., next December to present research findings at a national NSF meeting. John P. Hawkins is faculty project advisor.
