WSC Court decides elections see page 2 Vol. 36 No. 48 Weber State College April 27, 1976 J i ? ' ' Dr. Richard Sadler: Elected for third time. Hiring practices faulty by Mary Woodhead Lack of an official policy regarding part time employment at Weber could leave the college "open for litigation" according to i Dr. James Kelly, Director of Placement. Kelly said that part time employment must comply with equal opportunity regulations which are to insure that there is no discrimination in hiring. He added that an employer has a responsibility to make job opportunities known, through advertising with newspapers or the employment office. The student Union Building is one area where these problems exist Kelly said. Several students work part time at the information desk in the Union and according to Kelly those jobs have never been advertised in either the Ogden Standard-Examiner, the Signpost, or with the Placement Center. Farrell Shepherd, director of the Union Building said, however, that he has occasionally advertised in the placement center. v Shepherd said that he has attempted to meet the EEOC requirements but that "we have had some problems." Shepherd said that he has spoken with the minority student groups about the jobs however, the present officers of those groups, said that Shepherd has not talked with them this year. Of the employees working part time at the U.B. desks, three are members of this year's student executive council and two are newly elected members of next year's council. Shepherd said that he shows no preference to council members, "they just happened to put in their application and were available." On his shelf, Shepherd had a large stack of student applications which he said he "couldn't use." Faculty elects new officers, State affiliation contemplated by Rick Libby and Jeff Warburton The Weber State College Faculty Senate has reelected History Professor Richard W. Sadler to his third consecutive term as their Chairman. Also named in the annual election was Dr. Kenneth R. Adams, an associate professor of German, who will be serving a third term as vice-chairman of the organization. Dr. Sadler, who came to WSC in 1969, also serves as the editor of-the Journal of Mormon History and as president of the Weber Historical Society. One of Sadler's goals for the coming year is to increase faculty compensation. , Sadler won a majority of the votes in the general elections, and did not have to appear in the finals. In the final elections Dr. Adams narrowly defeated Blair Low of the Education Department for the vice-chairman's job. Other results of the elections included three new members being added to the Faculty Senate Executive Committee. Dr. Bruce Handley, Business Administration professor; Dr. T.R. Reddy, Political Science department; and Marie Kotter of Allied Health Sciences were elected to the administrative body. They. will join Dr. Blair Low and Ross Eskelson on the executive committee, along with Chairman Sadler and vice-chairman Adams. During last Thursday's meeting new classes were approved for Theatre Arts and General Education. The Theatre classes to be added to the curriculum are "Introduction to Acting" and "Creative Dynamics." "Consumer Life," "Child Development," "Married Life," and "Family Finances" were passed for inclusion in the General Education listings. In a related development, faculty members at WSC have been working together with associates at the University of Utah and Utah State University to lay the ground work for an association of higher education faculties in the state. Most members of the Faculty Senate here at Weber have indicated support for the proposed group which will provide legislative lobbying and negotiation services for faculties of the three major state supported schools. The association would be similar in scope to the powerful . Utah Education Association, which represents the public school teachers in Utah. Faculty members here are in wide agreement as to the need for better representation of their interests before the Utah legislature and the Board of Regents. The proposed association would be concerned primarily with increasing the amount of money available to higher education in general, rather than how much each institution would receive individually.Budgetary limitations have been found at the root of many problems here at Weber, and this group, if formed, would have a great potential to effect much needed changes. 111 it fill 111 i . : - n , . ? . fifa t " J if ''A I .7 Dr. Kenneth Adams : Returns for third term as faculty Senate Vice-Lnairmau.

|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.|
