Garfield hopes the Council will will have an impact on decisions made by the Board of Regents. Gonzales explained current projects : "By January of 1980 we hope to have increased to 100 watts to meet FCC standards." Funding is based on a $500 a year budget which pays for tapes, cartridges, and general maintenance.The equipment is professional, with touch control. It is good quality, not outdated machinery, according to Gonzales. Instead of commercials, public service announcements are run. Topics include the American Cancer Society, Planned Parenthood, and campus activities. Any campus organization is invited to bring over their announcement to be run. KWCR staff members come from the radio workshop class which meets Tuesday afternoons. KWCR has been on the air for about seven years. This past summer was the first time they have broadcasted all summer. They were on the air from 4 p.m. to midnight. The request line is 621-9651. Gonzales explained that she is looking forward to one of the better years they have had. "People are more interested in radio, regardless of T.V.'s influence. It's easier to do homework while listening to the radio, and people enjoy the human element. People like to laugh at people especially when they make mistakes on the air. Absolutely polished shows are boring anyway," said Gonzales. Garfield chosen as chairman By Sandy Berkow Greg Garfield, Weber State College Studentbody President was chosen chairman of the Utah Council of Student Body Presidents for 1978-79. The position of Chairman is not usually held by the studentbody President at Weber State College but rather by the studentbody President of the larger state universities. 'At present, the Utah Council of Studentbody Presidents has no rules or code of conduct to govern it. Garfield would like to see this group, which he believes has great potential, set goals that . better serve the interests of students in Utah's state colleges. He also wants to see the Council of Studentbody Presidents have an impact on the decisions made by the Board of Regents. His primary goal as chairman is "to develop a code of ethics by which the body will govern itself and Ombudsman role that of watchdog By Jamie Barrett The Ombudsman, a "watchdog" of the Student Government, mediates student problems and provides an information center on student rights. It is run for Weber State students by students to handle complaints. The service is free to all WSC Students and is supported by the college's general funds. This year's Ombudsmen are Heiko Glander and Linval Lewis. "Any on-campus concern of the student is the concern of the Ombudsman." explained Glander. Glander feels that WSC exists because of the student. "This organization is being run with student funds, and I intend to see that these powers (of office) are used to the full benefit of the student." he said. Last year, there were around a dozen complaints filed, according to Glander. He said not enough people know about it. The Ombudsman can help in problems with grades, finances, conduct its business." Student Lobbying Enhanced Garfield also believes that Weber State College should send a group to the state legislature to lobby for legislation that would benefit Weber State College. A Legislative Relations Committee is already in existance at Weber. At the present time the University of Utah already has such a group which is very effective in its lobbying efforts. Garfield would like to see the Weber State College Legislative Relations Committee kept at a minimum in order to achieve maximum effectiveness. Garfield, as the studentbody President at Weber State College, has already set some of his goals. One of these is to achieve more school spirit and involvement of the students in school activities. In the next few days he plans to implement a '"Weber State College is Great" campaign. records, disciplinary actions, faculty-student conflicts, dorm regulations, legalities, and racial and sex discrimination. There are four divisions of the Ombudsman : Student Government and Administrative Affairs; College Student Affairs; Consumer Affairs; and Legal Affairs. The Ombudsman has the powers of: Persuasion; investigation; negotiation; and advisement. If a student needs a lawyer, the Ombudsman can get him one at the very reduced rate. They also offer free pamphlets on available legal service for students, non-residents' rights in Ogden, and some issues of Consumer Facts and Buying Guides. On-the-job training experience for full-time students who are interested in social work or prelaw is provided by the Ombudsman Office. Any student who has a complaint or who is interested can contact either Glander or Lewis, phone 626-6357, or file a complaint form. The office is located in the U.B. diagonally across from the Information Desk. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

|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.|
