Volume 37 Number 47 Weber State College April 22, 1977 w ater, Events Center top discussion for Institutional Council by Rex Leetham The possibilities of using water from the drainage pond for irrigation purposes was discussed at Wednesday's Institutional Council meeting. James R. Foulger, V.P. of Business Affairs, said the water from the pond could be pumped out to supply needed water for surrounding landscape projects. Further investigation into the legal aspects of this type of water usage is currently underway; however, no complications are anticipated. President Bishop noted the water in the pond is waste water which would normally flow into the city drainage system; therefore, using it for irrigation purposes would be putting it to good use. Foulger also said that WSC will have the option of being put on a water meter this summer. The meter would provide a continual monitoring of water used, thereby allowing the grounds to be watered anytime day or night. This open approach to watering is necessary for the new grass which will be planted this spring and summer.The water meter will not allow WSC to use more water, Foulger added, it will merely allow them to use their 400 acre feet allotment anytime, rather than on specified days and hours. The council also discussed the dedication ceremony for the Ada Lindquist Memorial Fountain. The ceremony will be held on Friday, May 6 at 11 a.m., at which time the fountain will be turned on for the first time. Bishop stressed that the public should be aware that the water used in the fountain is continually recycled and none is wasted. Bishop also added: "Small fish may be put in the pond to control algae, and maybe some ducks." The council also unanimously approved the Operations Manual for the Dee Events Center with only minor changes in Section Four. The manual was previously passed by the President's Council. In discussing the DEC, Bishop said it would be for everyone, students and community. He said, "we need not fight for selection of events." There will be plenty of time for a wide variety of events, he added. Jeff Flamm, ASWSC President, noted in his progress report that construction of the DEC is on schedule and that it is 82 per cent complete, withh 25 per cent of the perimeter seating installed. The parking area is 5 per cent complete. The council also unanimously approved the purchase of stage curtains, light wenches and floating platforms for the DEC. During the Personnel and Committee Report given by Herald C. Steed, the council unanimously approved the hiring of a new staff member for the Psychology Dept., Charles Hickis from the University of Colorado, to replace Pauline Christy who will be on sabbatical next year. Steed reported there are currently 80 off -campus personnel involved in the instruction of day school at WSC, most of which are from H.A.F.B. and I.R.S. He indicated there are 149 persons involved with night school instruction here at WSC also. Members of the Institutional Council ended the meeting with a tour of the Crime Lab, located in the Social Science Building. Hunsaker plans cabinet for 77-78 by Mary Woodhead Next year's Studentbody President plans to formulate a President's Cabinet to help give direction to student government. Mike Hunsaker said the cabinet will have both permanent and temporary members depending upon the matter under discussion. According to Hunsaker, the purpose of the cabinet is "to help me know where to increase or decrease the emphasis of student government." Hunsaker plans to have per manent representatives on the cabinet from the minority coalition, LDSSA, older students, the dormitories, the Panhellenic and Interfraternal Councils, as well as some unattached students. Hunsaker noted that some groups may be left off the cabinet because, "I can't stand cumbersome committees." Temporary participation in the cabinet may go to academic assemblymen and other individuals or groups depending on how efficiently the system works. In determining membership on tne cabinet, Hunsaker said that the size of the group being represented will be an important factor. "If the students who are drunks need to be represented, then I'll put them on." he said. Hunsaker said that he wants to get students whose experience is different than his own on the cabinet. He said that he had never realized the problem with the limited library hours until he talked to other students who studied there and that a formalized committee might make him more aware of similar problems.

|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.|
