Student Services Vice President, Mike Hunsaker, announced yesterday that he is introducing a bill next week to form a new type of Married Students Chairman . The announcement came after one quarter of no chairman over the Day Care Center or Married Student Housing. Hunsaker said that the Present Married Student Chairman, Joel Dickson, has only worked on the activity board and attended only one meeting on the day care center. Dickson was unavailable for comment. Hunsaker said that the new position, called Students' Needs Chairman, will assume all the responsibilities as the former married students chairman had except that he will not be on the activity board. According to Hunsaker, there was ' a misunderstanding between Jon Tanner, Activity Vice President, and himself as to the responsibilities of the Married Student Chairman. Hunsaker said that he was disappointed about the delay, especially concerning the day care center, because he lost what he called an "important" quarter. Hunsaker said that both Dickson and Tanner thought that the job was only activity oriented. Dickson was appointed Married Student Chairman this past fall quarter after getting married last summer. He has no children. Inside Today . . . The Wildcat basketball team posted an impressive second place finish in the Far West Classic in Portland, Oregon. See story and photos on pages 11 and 12.

Hunsaker said Wednesday that the Ombudsman office is organizing a group to lobby with the Higher Education Committee in the Utah Legislature. Hunsaker encourages all students interested in working with the group to contact him at ext. 476 or Artie Powell in the Ombudsman office. President Bishop said yesterday morning that he was in favor of the three point recommendation made by the Institutional Council to the Board of Regents. Those recommendations are as follows: 1. Do not increase tuition at the present time. 2. Reduce the increase to nine dollars a quarter with appropriations of eight dollars made by the Legislature. 3. Increase tuition $17 on a sliding scale. Bishop said that the Ombudsman should be careful to represent student opinion and not create it. He added that their job served a unique purpose and a very important function for the students at Weber but they should be careful with their power. The group is not opposed, to a tuition hike, but, according to Hunsaker, opposed "to such a dramatic increase." He added that the Institutional Council recommended a nine dollar increase but the Board of Regents adopted a $17 increase instead. A graduated increase would be more agreeable with students, Hunsaker said. The Ombudsman office is encouraging students to write letters io the members of the Higher Education Committee against the increase. Members of the Committee are: Keith Warner, D-Clearfield, chairman; Sens. Dean, Waddingham and Matheson; Darrell Ren-strom, D-Ogden; Karl Swan, D-Tooele; Charles Bullen, R-Logan ; and Richard Car ling, R-Salt Lake City. Hunsaker said that their goal is to have the proposed increase die in committee hearings. If the committee chooses to favor the recommendation, then chances are it will pass, he added. Hunsaker felt that a lot of avenues were not looked into prior to recommending the tuition hike. He said that there were other ways for the college to raise money without raising the tuition.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
