Stud Mil WSC freshman basketball player Blake Partridge rescued a WSC coed, injured when a rock crashed on her head while they were climbing with companions Friday in Waterfall Canyon. Partridge and five other WSC students were hiking late Friday afternoon in the canyon east of Ogden when Debbie Rushton, resident of Stansbury Hall, fell and was injured. "The group had left the trail and was climbing up the side of the mountain," said Partridge. ajier j A f f if 5. f- ent rescues coe ITi Ci "Rushton was ahead of me when she reached over a ledge to pull herself up. The rock she grabbed gave way and she fell backwards about 15 feet to a ledge with the rock landing on her head." Partridge said he went to her aid. "I fashioned a bandage from my shirt and secured it with my belt on her head to stop the bleeding." He then helped her down the mountain.

In a lecture given last week to the Weber Women's Commission Smock-Hoffman said she based her statement on a survey recently completed by Project for Equal Education Rights (PEER). The survey ranked Utah 50th overall, next to last in the country. The PEER study looked at where girls and women stand in education today. Smock-Hoffman said three areas were studied; sports, administrators and vocational education. Utah ranked 40th in sports, but, she pointed out, Utah was one of the few states that did not include drill team as a sport.

Because of appeals made to the campus parking committee and the fact that the school has no power to serve summons to parking offenders for appearance before the judge, it is difficult to collect the fines. Out of about 15,000 tickets issued last year, she said, 2,318 appeals were made. The money from parking tickets is put into the WSC General Fund. Campus Security itself is self-supporting, like an auxiliary, on a subsidiary budget controlled by the Institutional Council. - V YA KNOW.lTSNffrsoEASf It GIVE STUDENTS TICKETS YEAH, FIRST THEY HAVE TO FIND ft PAPKINS PLACE I , 11 II 1 October 30, 1979 in nation to survev terscholastic athletes who are female in Utah is 27.79, according to the survey. Utah ranked 44th out of 44 states who reported data on female administrators. Only 3.04 per cent of superintendents, assistant superintendents, principals and assistant principals in Utah are female. Smock-Hoffman said there is no excuse for this as the majority of teachers in Utah are female. The per cent of female students in traditionally male vocational courses is 11.43. This ranks Utah about 14th among the states. Smock-Hoffman pointed out that Title DC is for equality for both men and women. Although the initial reaction was poor, she said, school administrators are now cooperating much better. In the districts, parents and students are becoming better informed, and pointing out inequities. The spokesperson from Campus Security said chances of mistakes in giving out tickets are about 1,000 to one. Approximately 3,850 B parking permits have been issued this year. About 850 A permits were issued, with about 950 parking slots available. Questioned whether the policy was fair, Meredith answered by quoting the WSC Parking and Traffic Rules and Regulations Manual, "The growth of WSC and the increasing number of vehicles on the grounds, compounded by construction changes, make it necessary that we drive and park in an orderly manner. Our safety and common welfare depend upon our being mutually considerate.

|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.|
