Each of the finalists was given a question to answer for the judges. The judges based their final decision on their answers. According to Ruth Kawashima, pageant organizer, the judges based their decision on beauty, poise, and personality. As Miss Weber State for 1979, Brimley will take up the duties of the dethroned Miss Weber State, Vicki Black. However, according to Kawashima, the duties of Miss Weber State are unspecific, other than to represent the college in the Miss Utah Beauty Pageant. Alan Hall and Jeanne Hall, both alumni of Weber State, were hosts for the Miss Weber State program. Also in the program were the Weber State Singers. Former senator to speak at convocation Eugene McCarthy, a former presidential candidate regarded as "complex and talented," will speak at a convocation today at noon. His talk entitled, "The State of the Union," will be presented in the Val. A. 'Browning Center. No admission fee will be charged, and the public is invited. The lecture is sponsored by the Convocations Committee, a WSC Associated Student's group, and the Steward Library Fund. McCarthy had divided his career between politics and teaching, and ran as an independent candidate for the presidency in the 1976 election. Earlier, he had represented Minnesota in the House of Representatives for 10 years, then was elected a senator in 1958 and re-elected in 1964. Mr. McCarthy's opposition to the Vietnam War led him to challenge Lyndon Johnson for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1968. In McCarthy's 1976 presidential campaign he called for creating new jobs by reducing the standard work week, and fore demilitarizing U.S. foreign policy. f " " "'"mm" ' ' ' P I ) W ? 1 V ; 7 ' v - h .

|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.|
