Bill 79-2 provides for the appointment of an associate student services vice president. Senator Bob Griess was appointed in October to be the Executive Secretary for the Student Services Vice President. Griess said that to date he has not been contacted by Neal. The complete text of Bill 79-2 is as follows: "Whereas the responsibilities of the Student Services Vice President are extensive and Whereas an associate Student Services Vice President would be very beneficial, Therefore be it enacted that the position of Associate Student Services Vice President be created for the remainder of the 1978-79 school year.

ASWSC President Greg Garfield explained the reason for this bill, "Student Services is a very important function in student government. In order to expand services and increase the effectiveness of the office, student officers have implemented changes not only inclusive of student services but throughout all of the elected positions." he said.

High school classes were added later, and still later, junior college courses were included. The school offered only high school courses in 1912, January 12, 1979 officer ; why "Much of administration is menial, task-laden work. Unless individuals are motivated by a cause, it is difficult to attain proper functionality. We have found this to be the case at Weber State College. People have been appointed to assist Brent Neal in providing services to students. Performance has been minimal because much of what is done is behind the scenes (low status) work." "Many times,'" he says, "the work has fallen directly back to Brent. He has requested help. I feel that because of the aforementioned conditions, for the proper function of the student services office, for the expansion of available services, and to facilitate better communication, it is necessary to appoint help to the office." Garfield concluded, "Randy Brough has served as VICE Chairman for two years and has had leadership training with volunteerism. This change does not constitute usurpation of authority. Responsibility delineation, both in expansion of services and in maintenance of that which is presently done will be decided by Brent and Randy. Randy will share the burden of responsibility of the Student Services office and the Executive Council will freely use his services."The bill will be discussed on Monday, and final action will be taken at that time. The Executive Council also agreed to take action to make the Advisory Council a more viable organization. They plan to hold a meeting at 7 a.m. on Wednesday Jan. 17 to discuss the measures to be taken against the nonproductive members. and it was not until the 1923-24 year that only college-level instruction was offered.

|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.|
