Less apathy sought in elections by Nancy Bailey Staff Reporter "I would like to see less student apathy towards the election of student officers," said Judy McCree, chairperson of the Elections Committee. McCree indicated she would like more student par ticipation in the elections. Moreover, she said dependable, unbiased volunteers are needed to man the voting booths during both the primary and final elections. Must Remain Full-time According to ASWSC election by-laws, candidates for office must be full time students and have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or greater. Members of Executive Council must plan to remain full-time students during the entire term of office. A student may not run for more than one ASWSC office and cannot hold more than one office at one time. Present members of the Executive Council and Academic Council may file for candidacy and run as long as their term of tenure for these offices do not overlap. The Elections Committee will verify the eligibility of the candidates prior to their names being placed on the primary ballot. A Chart of Responsibility The duties and responsibilities of the ASWSC elected officials vary for each office. A chart outlining the committees and responsibilities for each member of Executive Council can be found in the Activities Center of the Union Building. McCree emphasized that support is needed and volunteers can contact her in the Student Activities office ext. 477. She said, "If you don't participate on Elections Committee at least by leaving suggestions with the ASWSC secretaries andor by voting on election days, then don't gripe at the results."

|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.|
