it 'Iff"' i . . j 1979 Homecoming Queen, Christy Fronberg crowns 1980 Queen Sagitta Baldazo at the pageant Wednesday night. ax r I , s - n o n i Revision On October 27, the Legislative Council took final action on th proposed stipend revision for 1980. The revision proposal was initiated by Student-Body President Mike Arave as an alternative to the original plan which called for an increase in base salary. The original plan was heatedly debated by the Council, and was the object of much criticism throughout its consideration.The adopted proposal includes no base salary increase for the vice-presidents, but allows them the opportunity to earn an additional $300.00 per quarter as "merit pay". This merit increase would be awarded as a result of additional projects undertaken by the officer during the quarter, as well as for special programs and additional hours devoted to ASWSC. The vice-presidents are required to put in two office hours per day, attend all Legislative Council meetings, attend all Standing Committee meetings, and meet weekly with the President and their assigned advisor. These stipulations assure them only of the base salary, and not the merit increase. At the end of each quarter, the President and the faculty advisors evaluate the accomplishments of the individual officers, and determine if the base salary is appropriate. In addition, this review board will determine how much, if any, of the merit increase is deserved. The Student-Body President is subject to all of the same stipulations, with the exception of his Passe base salary, which had been increased to $600.00 per quarter. This program has been adopted on a trial basis, and a complete revision of the offices and" their duties has been scheduled for the spring. Student-Body President Mike Arave is quoted as saying that he feels the program is equitable, and will be implemented fairly. He also plans to bring the revision policy before the Council again at the end of Winter quarter, to work out "whatever problems have arisen". In that vein, however, he says his office expects no mechanical problems with the new policy, but does expect to see an increase in hours available to the officers to complete their individual projects. "I believe that this policy will allow the offices to put in additional hours towards their responsibility to ASWSC" says Arave, "and I think the student body as a group will notice an immediate improvement in programs on campus." The motion for policy approval was made by Executive Vice-President Cory Larsen, and seconded by Faye Hardy (P.R.). A roll-call vote was requested by the President, and all members approved of the motion, with the exception of Student-Services V.P. John Dawson, who was absent during the vote. The unanimous decision on the revision policy ends weeks of debate among officers and settles, at least for this quarter, a question that has drawn the attention of concerned students at Weber State. Queen When applications went out for Homecoming Queen two weeks, ago twenty-three went to girls from every school on campus. After judges reviewed resumes, personalities, individual talents, and personal philosophies in a series of interviews, five were chosen as finalists for this year. The five included Joyce Casmer, Suzi Miya, Kathy All-red, Sagitta Baldazo, and Julie Stephens. Throughout this past week, students have been voting in the Union Building for the candidate of their choice, and by Tuesday it was all decided. As part of this year's Homecoming activities, however, it was decided that the traditional pageant would be held on Wednesday in the Wildcat Theatre. As Master of Ceremonies Doug Harris introduced each of WEBER Arave Gets The Tow Last week while Student-Body President Mike Arave was enjoying the Commodores concert in the Salt Palace, SLC police were enjoying watching his car being towed into oblivion. Arave evidently decided that the little sign on the parking lot of the Salt Lake Tribune did not apply to people with green Mustangs, and pulled into the stall. Arave later blamed his disre-guard for the law on the influence of alcohol, stupidity, and "some guy named Harris". Arave spent the better part of the night wandering around Salt Lake City looking in impound lots for something that looked familiar. He located the car at lam, and by 3:30 he had successfully acquired the necessary thirty-five dollars to retrieve it. Executive Vice-President Cory Larsen pointed out that if Arave had received his stipend increase last quarter he "could have afforded a parking meter". On the other hand, says Larsen, if he couldn't have come up with the money for the fine, he might still be in Salt Lake City. Larsen says that this is the first good argument he has heard against stipend increases for Arave', and he is preparing to reconsider. the finalists, they were escorted to their seats by Academic Vice-President Jeff Stuart where they awaited their final question and the-"good news". Finally, after several songs and the usual speeches that accompany such events, Mr. Harris introduced 1979 Queen Christy Fronberg who announced the winners.

She will be announced at the Homecoming game against Utah State on the 8th, and will reign over all activities throughout the annual celebration. Miss Baldazo will ride on the float during the homecoming parade which will coincide with the dedication of Dixon drive. When asked to state her basic goal or philosophy of life Baldazo said it was to achieve her potential as a woman and to utilize her talents and abilities the best she can in the service of others. Among Baldazo's past accomplishments are National Honor Society membership, President of the Ogden High School Tiger-ettes, Vice President of the Weber State Chantonelles, and membership on the CAB. t 1 1 r i Z3 .J L. ... . j L..J J) ?

|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.|
