n WEBER STATE COLLEGE r o .-J OGDGN UTAH . . s j I o Inj o - - - Volume 42 Issue 38 April 7, 1981 Student Candidates Explain Stands Primary elections for the positions of student body president and public relations vice-president will be held this Wednesday and Thursday to determine candidates for next week's general election. To help inform you, the voter, the Signpost is printing the views of the presidential candidates. Clint Woolley: I am running for president because I can use my talents and abilities toward the improvement and continued success of student government at WSC. Key points I will focus on will be: money (tuition, fees); activities ("Uminating waste, creating new ideas for activities); and j :ater communication between student government and student body. I will represent all students and their ideas. For example, night school students have been neglected too long. Who knows what they want? Who has asked them? I want every student on campus to know they have a voice in their government. As student body president I will listen and I will work to continue to build WSC as a prominent institution of higher learning in Utah. John Dawson: I decided to run because of the encouragement I have received from friends, and also because of the experience I received this year as the Student Services Vice-president. I have started some new programs this year and am currently working on more new projects. If elected I will be able to see the completion of these projects. Some of these projects are: a ticket booth to sell tickets to movie theaters in the Ogden area at discount prices; tickets to other events to be sold by this means; and, a student directory giving a listing of all students on campus and distributed among all students. One other thing I'm working on is an off-campus housing list of apartments in the area. I feel that there is no need for a student fee increase, but a better distribution of those fees. I would like to find better ways of serving the students who attend here so they get the most out of their student fees and I think my record in office proves that I want to have these types of programs for students. Jeff Stuart: The office of student body President requires someone that knows the functions of ASWSC, as well as the administrators of this campus. He needs to be able to look out for the students needs. My major goal and concern as student body President would be to continue to fight against excessive student money layout and still be able to maintain the many activities and programs that are provided by student fees. With the tax cut from the state legislature we all need to make the very most of the dollars that we spend. Another big reason is to make sure the students voice is heard to the administration. While in President Brady's office one day I asked him what he saw the role of student body president to be. He said, "To be the voice of the students to the administration and to provide them with the opportunity to participate in some of the many programs and activities." I would strongly encourage the students here at Weber State College to be involved in any of the programs and be enriched as a result.

A reorganization of student government would be one of my top priorites. I would like to see more people involved in the decision - making process. I would like to have a system of checks and balances, so that student government is not unlimited and unchecked in the actions it may take. I want to begin now the transition toward responsible student government. Lori Memmott:Next to the President, the Activities Vice-president is what former student body President Bryan Steele called "the single most significant, demanding and challenging office in all ASWSC." I feel the experience gained from serving as Activities VP this past year will be a foundation on which to build the coming year. The single most important factor in serving ASWSC is experience. A new officer who has never served ASWSC can be paralyzed for months because of his lack of knowledge of policy and procedures. An officer with experience can set about the duties and fiscal responsibilities with a clear understanding of what he's doing and why he's doing it. Fulfilling our obligation of trying to serve and satisfy as many different tastes as there are on this campus is a challenge I think can be met by having an effective survey of the student needs, and then acting on those needs. I would like to see agenda minutes and all actions taken by student government publicized to make the students aware of what's going on, keeping them informed. While many budgets on campus have spent themselves' well into the red, we've been able to operate our Activities budget effectively and will come out in the black at the end of the year. Debaters Take Part in Nat'l Tourneys Fresh from an outstanding showing in one of the foremost national tournaments, Weber State College debaters and forensics specialists will leave next week for two new national-level tournaments, according to Professor Randy Scott, debate team coach. A debating team composed of Weber State's Jill Niederhauser and Wayne Alldredge took second place in the National Junior Varsity Debate Tournament held last weekend in Overland Park, Kansas, hosted by the Johnson County Community College. In recognition of that excellent showing and a brilliant earlier season, the team has been invited to compete in the National Debate Tournament beginning on April 9 at California Polytechnic in Pomona, Calif. Weber State is providing only one of the 62 debate teams from colleges and universities of all sizes and kinds across the nation to be invited, Professor Scott said. They also compose the first debate team from WSC to be invited to the big nation - wide tournament. Headed for the east coast on the same weekend for a national individual forensics tournament at Tousand University in Baltimore, Maryland, will be Rick Starnes, Kathy Kendell, Dave Allen and Tom Cowans. They will compete in eight events overall. Professor Scott said that Starnes will compete in five events and has an excellent chance to rate in the national top 10 overall. He also expressed pleasure that the Niederhauser-Alldredge team has been invited to the prestigious debate invitational, calling it a deserved recognition for Weber State's debate team.

|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.|
