The president controls ASWSC executive powers over the various vice presidents. Arave will preside over Executive Council and attend Institutional Council meetings as the student's representative. Arave has made no specific plans for his presidency, however, and is waiting to meet with his -newly-elected vice presidents. Arave's main goal is to find a ; A f r f I i! ! .'

Students and administrators, faculty and candidates fail to agree on the new election rules which allow for this type of campaigning.Election clutter attracts comment Whether they helped the turnout in last week's elections, no one seems to know. But the sight of election posters and banners strewn across campus drew favorable comments from those directly involved in the elections and generally unfavorable comments from those Convocation to feature controversial lawyer Wein glass Controversial lawyer Leonard Weinglass, the attorney who won several famous civil liberties trials in the 1960's and 1970's, will speak on "Famous Trials of the Sixties" in a featured noon convocation in the Browning Arts Center Thursday. Weinglass, who represented Jane Fonda in her suit against the CIA and FBI and defended Abbie Hoffman, Angela Davis and Bobby Seale, will also give better way to advertise. For example, he hopes to put up bulletin boards around campus to publicize ASWSC events. Student government is mainly here for extracurricular activities, Arave said. The major problem he sees is "to correlate activities so everyone will be there." Arave wants to continue such programs as the College Bowl, master student program, and the car pool. He wants to continue the fight for married student housing, he said, but tuition is out of student's control. Tuition increase, Arave explained, is ri t not involved. The decorated campus was made possible by this year's relaxed election rules, which withdrew many limitations on campaigning. "The mess is hideous," said one female student. "There should be one designated place three siminars in the Department of Political Science Thursday and Friday mornings. Weinglass has been deeply involved in human rights and civil liberties movements, including several which were highly unpopular at the time. He is currently a lecturer at the University of Southern California Law Center, and during past years defended Bill and Emily Harris of the Symbionese dictated from the Utah Legislature. "I feel super," Arave said, "especially because of the winning margin." Arave attributed his victory of over 2 to one votes because his opponents campaign reached its climax too early, while his peaked last week during the election. Arave's first priority, he stated, is to catch up on the past few weeks of school he missed because of the campaign. He also plans to attend a leadership retreat for all student officers this week. : 0. for posters." But Karl Wood, Associate Director of the Union Building and an election advisor, said he is glad to see this type of campaigning, an opinion ecnoed by several candidates. .

|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.|
