Gun McKay, D-Utah, a candidate for re-election to the U.S. congress, will discuss issues at a noon-hour meeting at Weber Hate Auditor may file simitt against Weber State College by Beverly Taggart (copyright) Utah Deputy State Auditor Boyd Wagstaff said if the college refuses to release salaries to the Signpost, his office may file a lawsuit against Weber State College. Wagstaff noted Richard Jensen, state auditor, could demand salary information be released to his office, and in turn, give the information to the Signpost. Wagstaff said he didn't think the newspaper should have to go through his office for public information, so a lawsuit might be the only possible solution. State Auditor Richard Jensen said he has requested a meeting this afternoon with Assistant Attorney Generals Brinton Burbidge and Tom Anderson concerning the "informal" attorney general's opinion in not releasing public information.Jensen said he requested the meeting to find out why the attorney generals didn't consider "pertinent sections of the law." "The Sunshine Law clearly states that the government must conduct the public's business openly," he said. "The informal opinion didn't take into consideration that the law says contracts and appointments are to be decided in an open meeting." Jensen said in his opinion it was clear the state legislature wants salaries classified as publicinformation. Faculty Senate work resumes DR. WILLIAM P. Miller, president cil.

|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.|
