ZJ li Automated Heating System Energy conservation is a high priority item on the campus due to a number of factors. For this purpose the Energy Conservation Committee has recommended that an automated heating controls system be installed in order to maximize the energy savings. To this end the Johnson Controls JC-80 is being installed on the campus and will monitor nearly 1400 points throughout all the major buildings. It is expected that resultant savings will be from twelve to twenty five percent in utility costs. Automated Controls Technician, Boyd Hirschi, has been involved with the automation effort from its inception and has stated his optimism at the expected savings of the system as well as the increased ability to monitor and control many points without actually having to go to each building. "It will result in the savings of a lot of manpower," said Hirschi, "and not having to go outdoors as much in the Winter will certainly be appreciated." The brain center of the JC-80 system is a central processor, a mini-computer, which is tied to its peripheral Y( ( r- 19 IfU ?JIIQU I j j GGDEN UTAH- Jl - equipment through phone lines and 'hard wiring'. The lines connect to 'intelligent terminals' so called because they are small computers in themselves. The intelligent terminals receive the raw data from the sensors and convert it into digital form which is transmitted to the central processorlocated in the Heating Plant building on campus on command, either directly or through a which converts the signal into a form capable of being transmitted via phone lines, and then recovers the digital signal and feeds it to the computer. The operation is reversed when the computer transmits to the intelligent terminal, called a loop remote. As in most modern management systems, the central processor delegates responsibility to the lowest feasible level and establishes a firm monitoring system enabling it to ignore operations until an irregularity occurs. When the system senses an exception it interrogates the trouble area and receives amplifying information which it then displays to the operator WEBER STATE EOLLEGE Mike At Mike Reagan, the son of Republican presidential candidate Ronald Reagan, delivered a very brief address at Weber State College Friday and said that, "the people who are regulating business and writing tax legislation would find it very hard to live under the laws they are passing. He urged voters to "give his father the chance to ease the regulation on business and the tax burden on the people." Reagan criticized the Carter administration for weak Will Result in enabling him to take corrective action almost immediately. The system is constantly being monitored and enables a problem to be detected almost instantly, and simultaneous problems to be displayed at a maximum time separation of 5-6 seconds. Many of the adjustments can be made by the computer operator from the console itself. This will enable better maintenance of a comfortable environment in all buildings at all times. In addition, energy consumption can be set back during the hours a building is not in operation. Another important feature is that the man-hours required for maintenance will be significantly reduced due to the ability to make adjustments and perform fault-isolation routines from the console itself. The potential savings for the computer are so necessary and so significant that maximum utilization has been programmed into the unit. Due to careful selection of monitoring points and operating programs, the computer has been able to utilize up to ninety percent of 1W2 September 30,1980 Reagan Speaks Weber State leadership which he believes is the blame for the hostage situation and the nation's economic problems. He added that "Carter is more concerned about his re-election than the rights of the American people." When asked what his father would do to free the hostages, Reagan said that if his father would have been president the United States would have been strong enough in world politics to keep the incident from happening in the first place. Energy Saving By Marly its operating capacity. This will result in a significantly greater operating efficiency than any other system in the state almost immediately, since most of the computer is in 'productive' operation. Iran Class Offered A look at "Contemporary Iran: Its Religion, Politics, and Culture," is being offered in a new evening class starting September 30. The class, offered by the Weber State College Division of Continuing Education, will be taught by Dr. Jennings Olsen, and will be held each Tuesday evening from 7-9 p.m. through December 9. Dr. Olsen will analize the major issues and principal personalities involved in Iranian cultural life during the Twentieth Century. The course will be taught in room 26 of the Social Science Building. For further information or to register call Ext.6600. I ulumv II Issue 2 by Bryan Shiffer He added "With my father as president the hostages would have been returned within 72 hours." Reagan also spoke in support of First Congressional District candidate James Hansen, GOP gubernatorial candidate Robert Wright and other GOP candidates accompaning him on a tour of the state. WSC Police Patrol Harrison If you happen to get pulled over for speeding on Harrison, don't be surprised if it's a Weber State policeman that greets you. House Bill 80, passed in 1979, gives college and university police forces in Utah statewide jurisdiction under certain circumstances. They are:l) When an officer is in fresh pursuit of a suspect who committed an offense within the officers jurisdiction. (2) When they are participating in an investigation of a criminal activity which originated within their jurisdiction in cooperation with local authorities. (3) When called to assist officers of another jurisdiction. Under this bill, WSC police officers and other college and university policemen are considered category I police officers. This means, among other things, that they must complete training at a police academy and annual certified training to remain on the force. With the passage of this bill, the WSC police can conduct the traffic control at Dee Event Center, before they had no jurisdiction off campus.

|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.|
