f pzHC:0(l WEBER STATE COLLEGE o JJ EN UTAH Volume 40 Issue 19 November 30, 1979 n 0 Council supports food fund drive By Mike Brubaker OxFam America, an international organization that aids starving nations, spoke to the Executive Council during the council meeting last Tuesday. The organization is trying to form a fund raising drive . on campus for the Cambodian and Thailand refugees. "Over two-thirds of the world's population doesn't know what a good square meal is," said Bill Wiseman, spokesman for the organization. Chris Malan, Public Relations Vice President, quipped, "I can include myself in that group." Council Support Bryan Steele, studentbody president, then pledged the support of the council to help the organization. In other business during the council meeting, Bills numbered 79-40 and 79-41 were introduced and passed by the seven member council. Athletic Conference Bill 79-40, introduced by Steele, provides $70 for room and board for one person to attend the Big Sky Athletic Conference in Idaho. The conference is designed for studentbody officers and administration officials of Big Sky schools to meet and regulate actions of athletic programs. Although the conference has no authority to control recruiting and other athletic practices it is demanded each school send a representative. "It is almost required that someone go to the conference," said Steele. Hockey Tickets Bill 79-41, introduced by Clay Richardson, Administrative Vice President, provided money to purchase to purchase Hockey tickets. The tickets will be resold to the studentbody at prices below their regular cost. Also during the meeting, Richardson announced the plan to sell a truck and station wagon used by the studentbody officers. He will then use the money to purchase a van to replace the two vehicles. o Iranians face deportation hearings By Beverly Taggart Campus foreign student advisor said that as far as he knows, there are no Iranians at WSC who have to face a deportation hearing. Last week, immigration agents were on campus to question the Iranians to see if they were violating their student visas. Further questioning After the interviews, noted Tony Spanos, about 50 students had to go to Salt Lake City for further questioning. However, he said the majority had gone down and no Iranian has yet said ""they need to go before the judge." "In most instances," Spanos said, "the immigration office has given the benefit of the doubt to those Iranians who had to go for further questioning. If any students are deported, I want to know the reasons why." Spanos said the interviews were organized and done in an orderly fashion. Wearing Revolvers However, he noted that some Iranians were "intimidated by the agents because they were wearing revolvers." "I think they got the feeling with the weapon present that they were being interviewed because they committted a crime; not to check out their student status," he added. However, Spanos said all in all, the immigration officers were pleased that 100 percent of the Iranian students showed up for the interviews, and the whole process went smoothly. Cooperation The college and the students cooperated, and the officers expressed their surprise in how effective the whole process turned out, heconcluded. t; " i Vf'V . - r 'X ' f U ; I f ' - 1 (ft i J L if (i 1 J 1 I ; J K -inrmimir & iMfi" - m i ! t0 k.m&x.

|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.|
