But only a joke "Kool-Aid Kid" angers Iranians Campus police officers Bill Moody and Harold Briskey were prepared for the worst when called to the Union Building to calm angry Iranian students last Friday. But what happened that day as they tracked the "kool-aid kid" can only be regarded as a sign of the times. The Iranian students told the officers that an American student was passing out hand billsthat invited "all Iranian students to come to the Bell Tower at 2 p.m. on April 25 and get your free Jim Jones drink (referring to the cyanide-laced Kool-Aid drunk in the 1978 mass suicide led by cult leader Jones) . All Americans please support." The American had left, but a second anonymous call sent the policemen to the Technical Education Building, where angry Iranian students pointed out an individual they said was trying to incite a riot between American and Iranian students. The man was approached and identified as Edward R. Devlin of Layton, Utah. Devlin admitted "in a proud manner" that he was responsible for making and distributing the 25 handbills inviting the Iranians to a Kool-Aid party. Devlin said he did it as a joke to scare Iranians because of negative conversations by Iranians on campus and the radio. No legal action was taken, but Moody warned Devlin that "if it happens again he would be arrested." And at the Bell Tower at 2 p.m. three curious Iranians arrived to see if anyone would show. Convocation speaker A WSC Convocation scheduled for yesterday was cancelled because of the speaker's personal difficulties. Dr. Wilson Bryan Key was to have spoken on "Subliminal Seduction," or advertising techniques used to lure consumers, but his agent, Newline Productions, cancelled his appointment Monday.

|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.|
