Records committee holds public hearing Beverly Taggart Utah State Records Committee will hold a public hearing concerning disclosing "personally identifiable salary" information in higher education on December 21, 1978, at 10 a.m. in the Governor's Board Room in Salt Lake City. According to Deputy Attorney General Michael Deamer, the purpose of the meeting is to give all interested persons an opportunity to submit their views concerning releasing salaries. Last March, the Signpost submitted a written request to the college requesting a list of employees' salaries that are classified by Utah law as "public" information. So far, the college has refused to comply, so editor John Redding has filed a lawsuit against the school. Deamer said he is recommending to the committee that "if they decide to make the salaries of higher education personnel open to the public scrutiny and publication, then his office would advise that the affected employees and faculty members be given written notice that 30 or 60 days from the Inside Today's Signpost Editorials . page 4 Theatre page 6, 7 Sports page 9, 1 1 November 10, 1978 adoption of the rule, then their personally identifiable salary information will be open to the public." He said, "If they cannot live with that requirement, then suggest that they might withdraw from their employment at the college or university." "However," noted Deamer, "if the committee decides not to disclose the salary information in a manner it can be identified to a given individual, then that should resolve the matter."

|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.|
