r - Memmott Lists 1981-82 Goals April 28, 1981 Newly-elected ASWSC President Lori Memmott says her main goals for next year are to effectively represent the students' views, to be an active member of the Utah Council of Student body Presidents(UCSP), and to work effectively with the ASWSC vice-presidents. In order for the council to know the students desires, Memmott favors a survey of the students at registration time. The survey has been proposed already, but is having trouble getting final approval, Memmott said. "Without getting student input, we won't know what they want," Memmott said. In addition to the survey, Memmott would like to see suggestion boxes placed in visible spots in every building, to further gauge student opinion.She said that as a member of the UCSP, she could lobby for student needs. "We could really do a lot if we'd go down to the legislature and lobby," she said. The students could become more of a force in the state and effect positive changes, she continued. Memmott assessed the quality of the other elected officials by saying, "I'm really working with a 'gung-ho' group of people." The new council is already meeting, she said, and students are invited to their weekly meetings. The meeting is held Wednesday morning at 7 in the ASWSC offices. The next meeting will discuss the policies that will govern next year's budget. The ASWSC council will also meet during the summer, she promised. As an immediate goal, the council has pledged to pick the committee chairmen and other officers by May 22. Memmott attributed her election as first woman ASWSC President to several factors. "I've worked hard this year as Activities Vice-president, I ran a hard campaign, I had the support of a lot of different areas on campus, and I knew I could do it." Memmott said. The last reason was very im-portant, she explained, because she was told by many people how hard it would be for her to win, but as she puts it: "Before my election last year as Activities Vice-president, people also said we couldn't have a dinner dance." Reflecting on the responsibility the council will have toward students, Memmott said the council will have "nothing to hide" and she will publish everything and work with the Signpost. Included in the public information will be the expenditure of student fee money and the minutes from ASWSC council meetings. Memmott also pledged that agendas will be provided to students before meetings so they will know what is being discussed. Founder's Day Plans Announced by College Weber State College will note Founder's Day 1981 with the dedication of a plaza and a luncheon featuring the 1981 Dixon Award winner. The college will officially dedicate the plaza between the Union Building and the Browning Fine Arts Center as the Aaron W. Tracy Plaza at 1 1 a.m. Friday. The dedication will honor the man who served as school president from 1922 to 1935, a critical period for the college. QUO TABLES "Don't be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small steps." David Lloyd George. It was at this time the school went from being church-owned to being a state institution.President Tracy set up a program to have the school accept produce in lieu of cash, so students hit by the Great Depression could continue to go to school. Following the plaza ceremony, a banquet will be held in the Union Building ballroom where 1981 Henry Aldous Dixon award winner Milton Mecham will be presented with his award. Mecham retired this year after serving the college for nearly forty years in a variety of positions. His last role was as Dean of Admissions and Records, a job he has done since 1962. Mecham also served as head coach of the football and wrestling teams. JOJfaiir- WEBER STATE COLLEGE fl bJUi iLnj JlJslj 'j. T' QGDEN UTAH j; Volume 42 Issue 45 ASWSC Revokes Charters of ACO Organizations The charters of over 100 campus groups belonging to the Association of Chartered Organizations (ACO) have been revoked by the ASWSC Executive Council. The action was taken at the Monday meeting of the council because the groups have not been in compliance with the ACO constitution, according to Cory Larsen, ASWSC Executive Vice-president. Specifically, the groups have not maintained their file with the ACO, and have not attended the monthly ACO meeting. The revoking of a group's charter means the group is ineligible to receive funding from ASWSC and cannot use the other privileges of chartered organizations, such as use of Union Building space and the outdoor marquees. It does not mean the group no longer exists. The action was taken after repeated warnings by way of letters sent to the individual groups and a notice published in the Jan. 16 Signpost. Larsen stated the action was delayed to give the groups a chance to come into compliance with the ACO constitution, and the groups have failed to do so. Officers representing the groups have a chance to win reinstatement by appearing at the next ASWSC council meeting, Monday May 4, and showing good reasons why they have not been in compliance.Questions or complaints about the ASWSC actions can be addressed to Cory Larsen in the ASWSC offices of the Union Building, telephone number 626-6349. Instructors and children from the WSC day care center participate in the parade held Saturday to kick off "The Week of the Young Child". College Notes Week of Young Child The Week of The Young Child started off with bright smiles on a sunny street as pre-schools and day - care centers gathered their troops and paraded down two blocks of Washington Boulevard to the municipal park for a fair. Weber State Colleges Children's School was the first of eleven schools that participated. WSC's school has been participating in the Week since it was set up in Ogden by Weber State people seven years ago. The Week of the Young Child is set up by the National Organization for the Education of Young Children. It is sponsored by the local Weber-Davis Association for the Education of Young Children. The fair in the municipal park utilized volunteer labor by WSC students. Some students receive practicum credit for the activities. The fair is a break - even proposition, which cost and made $1300 this year, said Tom Day of the WSC Child and Family department. It gets bigger every year. He said that there was twice as many food booths this year than last and many more activities. Other events during the week are the Family Nature-thon Fri. from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Ogden Nature Center, 966 west 12th St., which features a bonfire and a petting farm; and a workshop Sat. from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for parents and teachers at WSC. Further information about the activities may be obtained by calling 621-1599.

|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.|
