Untuning Fine Arts Center proides background for two industrious XSC students. Vi ith F all Quarter already half oer and finals week fast approaching Council discusses new student governing format By Michael Reberg Final proposals for a new ASWSC constitution will be discussed in a meeting of the Executive Council on Tuesday night. During the past two weeks, the council has heard different ideas from various people and groups on campus concerning a new form of government for the associated students. Studentbody President Bryan Steele said a new constitution is needed to give students a greater opportunity to participate in campus government. He also believes the present system is too centralized, saying, "All the decisions are made by N 1 r3""""" . -' Sl A l : . .-? 1 i f f one body." He feels by giving other bodies a greater part of the decision-making process, major bodies can concentrate on major issues. Another problem with the old system of government is that the duties of the executive and legislative branches are performed in the same body, which does not adequately separate the powers. Proposals for a new government have come in the form of variations of the three branch system of government, said Steele, and adds the final constitutional draft will be in the form of a compromise between these proposals. -r WNIj, iWMiJUffc... After the Tuesday night meeting, when the council reaches a compromise, it will be sent to the Association of Chartered Organizations (ACO), who will either give suggestions or approve it, said Steele. The council, after ACO's approval of the proposal, will take several weeks to write the new constitution and insure its legality. Public hearings will be held later this year to obtain student input, The final step will be a vote by the studentbody on the new constitution, he said. Said Steele of the hearings, "We're going to do everything we can to get it to the students." - -'11' - a II I i 1. . i -Ay-, r here's an encouraging thought for other Quarter packets will he available in lluilding Nov. 9th.

The Utah Property tax refund program was ruled constitutional in a Utah Supreme Court ruling Wednesday. The program's legality was challenged last month by Stale Treasurer Linn Baker.

|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.|
