""W" MEDALIST WINNER : Philip Anosike is trying to promote the game of soccer at WSC but feels that the college is not supporting the effort. Soccer club defeats U of U The Weber State Soccer club defeated the University of Utah Soccer team by 7 goals to 6 in a very thrilling soccer match series organized by BYU for the All Stars Soccer Team, Saturday on the BYU campus. Half time score was 4 goals to 2 against U of U. Individually, Weber's Philip Anosike, a Nigerian student at WSC, won medalist honors for his outstanding performance which added to the defeat of the University of Utah team. Fixed tuition ratio favored by council by Marshall Henrie Two separate recommendations, one from the Student Academic Senate and another from an administrative committee, favor having student tuition pay for a set percentage of the total cost of higher education. SStudent tuition should represent a fixed ratio of the total cost, of higher education, according to recommendations passed this week by' the Institutional Council. Medalist winner, Philip Anosike, said, "The college doesn't seem to be concerned about its own." "We are putting on our best to promote the game of soccer at WSC," said Anosike. "Four Nigerian students who enjoy playing soccer very much," according to Ansike, "are Bernard Bassy who served the winning goal, Chi playing at the defense, and Ted at the halfback." " There are a host of other foreign students who enjoy the game also," he said. As the system is now, students only pay a small part of the total cost but the percent they pay varies from year to year. According to Brian Gould, representing the Student Academic Senate, the recommendations would have the greatest impact at the yearly budget sessions. The budgets would -be made in accordance with the set tuition ratio and would be dependant on the number of students projected for DEC opening uncertain by Deb Carter The Dee Events Center completion and the Dedicatory Ceremony were discussed at Wednesday's Institutional Council meeting. Also mentioned was the success of various campus activities and organizations. Speaking of the completion of the Super Dee, President Bishop said he was "reluctantly optimistic." "We don't know if it's going to take place (on time) or not," he said. The president said Bob Folsom, Director of Campus Planning, "has been on top of it from start to finish." When problems have come up, they have been taken to the Building Board, whcr in the end "will accept or reject" the building which "does not the following year. - In the Institutional Council meeting, President Joseph L. Bishop said, "The problem we have had in the past is that setting the budget turns into more of the political arena and less than a carefully conceived tuition assessment." The recommendations make provisions for annual but more gradual tuition increases. For example, as the total cost of higher education goes up, so would the tuition go up according to the percentage previously established. According to the administrative recommendation, the annual tuition adjustment would be more easily understood by students than the typical process of trying to convert student leaders every few years to the need for a large tuition increase. The student recommendation pointed out that the system of annual increases and better tuition assessment would "allow the present student body to help pay for their education and not pay for the deficiencies of the past." Another point on both recommendations is the need to make the percentages more standard between institutions of higher learning. The percent of the total cost paid by tuition varies presently from school to school. yet belong to WSC," according to Bishop. The completion question is the reason announcements concerning the dedication have been delayed. Dean Hurst, ceremony chairman, said "We have been just a little late making sure that the building is going to be ready as far as invitations." He added that the dedication is going to be "in the form of an open house." Everyone is welcome and there is no admission charge. The dedication will begin with the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 p.m. Then the doors will be opened and self-conducted tours may be taken through the building until 8:30.

|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.|
