What really happened at Model United Nations' Behind the scenes with Orchesis and their May presentation. Gove-Clampett stun masses with virtuoso by Guy Yocom Sports Editor Whem Mike Gove and Bobby Clampett boomed their initial tee shots off the first hole at Provo's Riverside Country Club, golf was temporarily transformed from an afternoon occurrence to a mystical adventure involving two of the amateur ranks' finest showmen. To them, golf isn't a game, but a business and a passion. It's been noted before that golfers grow up faster than other athletes, but the composure, stamina, and talent that Gove and Clampett exhibited gave proof that they are unsurpassed as amateur and collegiate athletes. Clampett is the best amateur golfer in the world today. He owns first place finishes in some of the most prestigious amateur tournaments in the country, and was last year's low amateur in the U.S. Open at Cherry Hills in Denver. And recently, he gained the same accolade at Augusta, Georgia in the Masters. He was paired with Jack Nicklaus for one round, and beat the greatest golfer in history by three strokes. He didn't have it that easy last weekend against Gove, who also is one of the country's premier amateur golfers. Their 18 hole, head-to-head match was' beautiful to watch, and the two were so closely matched in ability that caring as to who would win was secondary. Most 'Good Company' members not registered at Weber State by Bev. DeVoy-Taggart Ten of the fifteen members of Good Company are not registered as full-time students according to the registration office. Nine of the ten members are not even registered at all at Weber State College, according to records. Good Company is a student organization consisting of dancers, singers, and instrumentalists.Dick Davis, trainer and director, said members of the company do not have to be fulltime students in order to participate. However, according to WSC Procedures Manual, "A student must be matriculated and registered as full-time student. A student changing to part-time status, as a result of withdrawing golf show How good were they? Clampett didn't miss a fairway all day long; as a matter of fact he was seldom out of its center. And while he and Gove both shot 67's, the rounds could have been much lower had a few putts turned an inch or more toward the hole. Gove proved superior with his iron-play most of the day and was Clampett's equal off the tee after shaking off a tendancy to hit the ball too far right on the first holes. Gove gave evidence of this phenomenal iron-play often, but his approach to the par-4 fourth hole was particularly memorable. After going right with his tee shot, the Weber State senior eyed the green from about 200 yards out, and hit a whistling low iron that hooked slightly at the last possible moment and stopped seven feet from the hole. Gove missed the birdei putt, and Clampett, who had hit into the right bunker, blasted out to about two feet, and dropped the putt to save par. 'That hole was typical of many on that sun-drenched Saturday afternoon. Nip and tuck all the way. The pair managed to save the highest drama for the last two holes, however. The 17th a long par three bunkered on the left with the Provo River running in front of it, called for their best shots and they delivered. Weber State's John Graham had the best previous shot of the continued on page 11 from a class during the quarter, automatically becomes ineligible to participate in extracurricular activities." Davis said Good Company was considered an extracurricular student activity. He also noted that last year, ASWSC allocated about $3000 of student funds to help the company. Student government allocated $1,770 this year for Good Company, according to the ASWSC Secretary. The director said that students who are in the group do not have to be full-time students. Davis said that last year he received permission from Joseph Bishop, former WSC President, and Dean Hurst, Assistant to the President for College Relations, to occasionally use non-students. However, Hurst said that it was his understanding, that in the """" Mmnmi'f STALKEVG VICTORY for Weber State, senior golfer Mike Gove engaged in a heated batde with BYU's Bobby Clampett for the event the company was going on a USO Tour, students could drop classes that quarter, and register full-time again the next quarter. Hurst noted that members of the group should be students, even if they are only part-time. Davis said the reason he had to use non-students in the group was that once he got started in the "front of the academic year, he had to maintain the people because of the preciseness of the show." "I just can't replace, for example, a guitar player halfway through the year," he added, "because the show is very intricate and complicated, and it would take about a month to retain somebody." "So once I start with students," Davis said, "it's practically impossible for the quality of the program to try to replace them." V? t medalist position at the recent Cougar Classic in Provo. Gove lost in playoff, but led all Wildcat scorers. According to the registration office, members of the group who are not registered students are; Chris Clary, Gilbert Rodriquez, Andy Schoffer, Laurie Welker, Rob Toyn, Jan Gygi, Kelly Nelson, Maureen Marshall, and Bret Erickson. Also not a full-time student is Jill Wansgard. However, Davis said that Wansgard, Shcoffer, and Marshall were full-time. He noted that Jim Alexander was not full-time.The director also said he had a member of the group that was taking high school correspondent courses, and another member was a graduate student, not attending the college. Welker, another member, only performs with the group abot 20 jjercent of the time, Davis added. Another member, Erickson, has only performed once.

|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.|
