32 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Wedncsdov, Oclober 20, 1971 So says new president of Brigham Young University Conservative image not about to change pnOVO, Utah (AP) The largest private university in the United States, Brigham Young University, has a new president, a 39-year-old for- mer law professor who says the c h o o 1's conservative image is not about to change. Dallin Oaks, formerly of the University of Chicago, was named BYU president this past summer. He succeeds Ernest L. Wilkinson, 72, head fit the school for the last 20 years. BYU is operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Lat- ter-day Saints (Mormon) and 95 per cent of the students be- long to the church. Enrolment is on a campus nestled in Provo, a city of about in central Utah. The university has shown few signs of the campus dis- sension, riots, or anti-war pro- tests that have occurred at other schools. There were, for example, no serious protests at BYU in the spring of 1970 over Kent State or the Cambodian invasion. COFFEE, TEA BANNED There is little permissive- ness on campus, either in dress or conduct. Students can be dismissed the first time they violate a dress code that frowns on miniskirts and long hair. Smoking and drinking is taboo and even such mild stimulants as coffee and tea are not sold or allowed on campus. In an interview, Oaks said he has no intention of chang- ing the school's standards. "We don't feel out of step; we feel he said. "We feel we have standards that se tus apart from any other institution that has surren- dered to influences we feel are not in the best interests of the individual or the country in which we live." Oaks, who looks even younger than his age, indi- cated he felt the composition of the student body probably has something to do with the absence of student unrest. "We have a very cosmopoli- tan he said. "One- third of our students have served missions for the LDS Church. That means several thousand of them have lived two years in a foreign coun- try, often in very humble cir- cumstances. "That means we have very mature undergraduates, older than most. We also have stu- dents from all 50 states and 60 foreign nations." Oaks said the school's goal is to teach the fundamentals of both secular and spiritual knowledge and to bring those teachings "into harmony with the lives of men and women In order to prepare them for a balanced and full life of serv- ice to God and fellow man." The campus theatre shows only family-type movies. Oaks said that as the school's spir- itual as well as intellectual leader, he intends to convince students to stay away from such things as X-rated films. "By abstaining from these things, perhaps we can force them out of he said. "I want to tell the stu- dents: "You wouldn't eat garbage; why go see Oaks said he believes the racial protests that have plagued BYU in recent years will abate as people learn more about the school and its programs. Official Mormon Church policy is that Negroes may join the church, but may not hold the priesthood, a rank that every other adult mem- ber is expected to attain. Because of this, minority groups have charged that both the Mormon Church and BYU are racist institutions. The school has only a hand- ful of blacks among its students. Oaks says Hint's natural, considering from where BYU draws most of its enrolment. "Many of the areas that I high proportion of our stu- dents come from don't have many black said.
