What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Utah Symphony to Perform Feb. 25 The parched, painted Utah terrain bears fruit of the most exotic varieties. Skyscraper-siz­ ed batholiths jut the colors of rust and alabaster from the flat Canyonlands basin; water cata­ pults in veils at Flaming Gorge; bones of primeval creatures emerge from the desert dust near Vernal; rocket cars smash 600 m.p.h. over lifeless flats pros­ trate on the shores of the Great Salt Lake; and a capital city grows in a man-made garden terraced by the Wasatch Moun­ tains. An orchestra took root here, an orchestra that several American critics list among the nation’s ten best. Here, in a valley crowded on four sides by mountains, in a state still guarding its primitive heritage, the Utah Smyphony Orchestra began. And here it fluorishes.. In 1969, the southern Utah town of Loa (population 369) had a visitor, one that touched the families of farmers and ranchers and storekeepers and business­ men alike with new understand­ ing. Many in the town had never heard live classical music. They heard it that night, as few orchestras in the world can play it, when Maestro Maurice Abrav- anel and the Utah Symphony came calling. In a town of 369, more than 900 came to hear the music. This is the thrust of the Utah Symphony, according to Maestro Student Begins Cynthia Jean Sterger, a Carroll student, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Stergar of Anaconda, today began a year of study at the Institute for American Universi­ ties in Avignon, France. The program is designed for students who are fluent in French and who plan a total immersion into French life. At the same time as perfecting French, she will follow courses at the Institute in French literature, Drama, Poetry, Gov­ ernment, History and Philosophy supplemented by courses taken with French students at the Avignon Centre Universitaire. In Avignon students find a picturesque medieval walled city equidistant from the Mediterran­ ean and the snow slopes of the Alps. Within these walls are fourteenth century buildings, witnesses of the time when Avignon was the seat of the papacy, supplanting Rome as the Capital of Christendom. Avignon flourishes today as a cultural and university center in the heart of rich farmland famous for its fruits and wines. European art and history, language and literature, take on new forms and meaning for students as they move toward new planes of thought and forms of expression. The excitement of discovery and self-assurance and depth of experience gained add up to the kind of year one never quite “ gets over.” SENIORS AND FACULTY, start getting in shape! The Senior - Faculty basketball game will be Thursday, the tilth of February, the preliminary game to Carroll vs. College of Great Falls. Abravanel, who gave it direction - to reach new ears, to instill new love for the great art and the personal experience of music. They do it, these 85 musicians and their eminent conductor, through a determination to serve as a “ regional” orchestra, and to reach young people in as many schools as they can, to show them what music offers. What they do in the acoustically - opulent Salt Lake Tabernacle, of course, provides the foundation for their musical outreach. Here they perform their season sub­ scription concerts. And from here they extend their season, to eight concerts in Ogden and three in Logan. Here, too, they record performances for radio syndica­ tion )from Los Angeles and Sacramento to Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C.) and for rec­ ords. More than 80 Utah Sym­ phony recordings; including sev­ eral pressed in 1975, are sold throughout the U. S. and over­ seas. Among those recordings is an historic set of the works of Gustav Mahler. The Utah Sym­ phony, under Abravanel’s gui­ dance, is the only American orchestra to record the complete set of his compositions, including several disks that magazines like Hi Fidelity and Stereo Review rate the best artistically of all Mahler recordings. But Maestro Abravanel and the Symphony aren’t content to Year in France The Institute also has a program since 1957, in Aix-en-Provence, a bustling university town in south­ ern France, 17 miles north of the great port of Marseille. The British Studies Centre in Castle Street, Canterbury Eng­ land is in association with the English University. A year’s program of British Studies is offered to American undergrad­ uates who are enrolled as occasional students of the Eng­ lish University.

Of more than 1,400 Utah Sym­ phony concerts in the past 25 years, a third were school or youth concerts, many of them presented in gymnasiums and auditoriums throughout the In­ termountain West without charge Subsidies from the state of Utah keep the program strong, a program that every three years lectures Students Favor Co-Ed Dorms In an informal lunch-time sur­ vey, Carrol students indicated a willingness to live in co-ed dorms if they were available at Carroll. In response to a question regarding their sentiments to­ ward living in a co-ed dorm, over 75 percent of those responding said they would live in a co-ed dorm. Eighty six percent of the 245 male respondants said they would live in a co-ed dorm. Females were less enthusiastic, with only 56 percent of the 154 females queried answering in the affirmative. Only six of the 437 respondants failed to express an opinion. touches virtually all state high school students and thousands of elementary school young people in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Arizona as well as Utah. Scarcely one in 12 of the Symphony’s non-school concerts is performed in Salt Lake County, evidence of the ensemble’s com­ mitment to a “ regional orches­ tra” concept.
