J J u At a meeting with the Faculty Senate on Thursday, Feb. 19, WSC President Joseph Bishop admitted that he has failed to some extent in providing strong leadership to the college. Bishop met with the faculty and studentrepresentatives to answer questions and to go over a list of complaints about the administration that had come earlier from the faculty. The complaints listed by the faculty included lack of leadership, lack of a functional structure, inability by the administration to deal with criticism, disregard for academic affairs, poor communication, and disregard for faculty opinions. Bishop took the complaints, one by one, and adressed the faculty on where he thought the problem was in each situation. Bishop said that he felt that the problem of leadership stemmed from his concern about attracting funds to the college. He noted that in trying to do this he spent a great deal of time away from the college first and that he probably should have spent his time building faculty support. Bishop also said that he felt that there had been a lack of communication between the faculty and the administration but that his new administrative structure will help to solve that problem. Dr. T.R. Reddy, assistant professor of political science noted a discrepancy betweeen the report issued by Dr. Jerald Storey, vice president in charge of planning and administrative systems, and the catalog. The discrepancy according to Reddy centered around a de-emphasis of research and the increasing emphasis on technical training. Dr. Storey's report says that the major energies and resources of the college will go toward preparing a student for an occupation, providing a liberal education, and enhancing his life! Some members of the faculty from the liberal arts questioned this statement as a major change of the priorities of the college. President Bishop was unable to answer Dr. Reddy's question and referred it to Dr. Storey, who will meet with the faculty at a later date. " At the meeting, Dr. Dello Dayton, vice president in charge of academic affairs said that the emphasis on technical education is one that was designated by the state legislature. Dayton said yesterday that he felt that since more students were interested in technical education, that WSC has a responsibility to provide more of it. One faculty member noted that in the past WSC has been primarily liberal arts oriented with tech-ed "sort of tacked on," but that now, the two tech schools, technology and Allied Health are becoming equal to all of the liberal arts schools put together.

|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.|
