McKay's influence Needed in House Democratic congressman, Gunn McKay, in addressing the students Monday, strongly urged his re-election, saying, "To put a republican in office now would lose all the influence Utah has in the House of Representatives. McKay, who heads the Military Appropriations Committee of the House, said to lose his position because of the" current push to oust the Democrats would be very detrimental to the state." "All the money bills start in the House. The men on the appropriations committee work mainly to help their states," said McKay. "For me to lose my position would mean the loss of influence for Utah." McKay cited his case for keeping the DDO Ogden from being transferred to Tracy, California. McKay said he is work ing for appropriations to develop synthetic fuels in Utah. "The country needs energy independence and Utah is important in this prospect because of the great reserves of oil shale and tar sands. We need to get development going in this area." The congressman said he is against more money for solar energy development. He says "there is too much money out there for solar energy now." "More government regulations need to be curtailed." said McKay, "they harm industry." Speaking of the EPA, McKay said environmental regulations should be eased.

|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.|
