Carroll Finley said that one of her major goals was to see that both projects come closer to reality. Finley noted that she has worked on both projects since their inception. Jim Jensen also said that he would support day care as a member of the executive council. Brent Neal agreed that he would support both projects.Neal said that he would also support publication of a faculty evaluation. "I think the students should know what's going on," he said. Jensen also voiced support for the evaluations noting, "If they can be published they could have some real effects."Finley said that the evaluations "give students an opportunity to know how teachers run their classes." Both Jensen and Finley expressed dissatisfaction with the way WSC President Joseph Bishop is running the college. Jensen said "Bishop just hasn't worked effectively ... cont. on page 2 Three running for new office Students running for the newly created office of Administrative Vice President are Randy Brough, Dwayne Carrington and James Westmoreland. All three candidates said that they will actively go out and campaign to get students outside the LDSSA involved in student government. Carrington said he plans to actively go out and recruit students from outside traditional areas to get involved in student government. Westmoreland said that by having students outside the LDSSA plan activities, more students will get involved.Carrington, who presently serves on the special events committee said that administration "had better think of someone other than the Osmonds if they want the Super Dee to kick off to a big start." Westmoreland said that students should have had input before the administration even considered booking. Brough said that the administration could have found a better band for the opening and that the Osmonds would be good, "if you're trying to impress high school and junior high school students." All three said that they would support both the Day Care Center and Married Student Housing. Brough noted that "there is a fantastic need on campus."Carrington said "I think it's very much necessary" especially since 40 percent of the student body is over 25. Westmoreland agreed that there should be both married student housing and a campus day care center. Davis, Masur, Mattson run for Cultural V.P. All three candidates for Cultural Vice President said that there should be no booking for the Dee Special Events Center without student input. Chris Davis, Rand Mattson and Dorothea Masur descussed the Administration consideration of the Osmonds as the opening act of the Dee Center. One of the major duties of the cultural vice president will be the booking of performers for the Super Dee. Davis said that as far as he knows, the Administration has not officially decided to book the Osmonds but that "I am totally against anyone other than students booking the first event." Mattson said that the Administration was probably looking at the booking from a financial point of view but that no decision should be made without student input. Masur said that it ws "inconceivable" that the administration would consider acting without the approval of the students and that any action taken without student approval should be considered invalid. cont. on page 2 Public Relations candidates discuss views on Weber Rick Libby, Paula Smith and Steve Welker, candidates for public relations vice president, covered a wide range of opinion in their responses to questions on student issues. All three agreed on the necessity of married student housing, the day care center and published faculty evaluations. Welker said that he feels that President Bishop can continue in his present position. "His efforts are sincere, even though the students don't agree," he said. Smith said that Bishop's resignation may have been construed as an admission of guilt and that he may be able to back down when things cool off. Libby said that the students don't have confidence in President Bishop and that without trust, the college can't function. Welker and Libby agreed that Carver should have been suspended. Libby said, "Anytime the Feds are looking into wiretapping, it has to be serious business." Welker said that he is against any type of wiretapping. Smith said that the students should support Carver until the investigation is concluded. Welker was the sole candidate who felt that the Administration's consideration of the Osmonds to open the Super Dee is a good idea. "I think they'll pull a lot of community," he said. Smith and Libby agreed that there should have been student input on the decision and Libby added, "If you talk to college students... the Osmonds stink. The Administration is booking for junior high school students.

|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.|
