Wildcat golfers take eleventh championship title The Wildcat duffers did it again! The WSC men's golf team has won the Big Sky championship for the 11th time in a row. "It took us to the third round to get a commanding lead, but we finally pulled away and won the thing," said head coach Mac Madsen. "But I don't like to brag about winning this tournament because we should win it." This year's team enters the BSC with a little added pressure, but with the consistent play of Scott Geroux, Gregg Whisman, Joel Kraz, Mats Jonmarker, Jim Bemepe and Todd Erwin, the team was able to pull off the championship and get a bid to the national tournament."We have one of the better budgets for golf in the conference, plus the fact that we play tougher competition and therefore we should do better," said Madsen. Weber went into the tournament as the favorite. But according to a new rule set up by the NCAA-that no team from a conference can go to the nationals until the conference champion has been invited-the Wildcats were faced with a must-win situation. "This team has, at times this year, played as well as any team I have had, but they also have been somewhat inconsistent," said Madsen. "We finished higher than any team I have had in the Sun Devil Classic, and we beat some of the best teams in the nation. But we also had some bad rounds this year that cost us." Coach Madsen did not know until Thursday afternoon if the team would be invited to the nationals, but the call did come and once again the Wildcats will be in the prestigious tournament. "I was on the phone until 10 p.m. Wednesday night with the other members of the committee and 1 knew that a recommendation had been made that BYU, Weber State and San Diego v J f rm ) The 1982 Weber State men's golf team Gleim, Mats Jonmarker, Jim Bemepe, from left to right are front row: Head Glenn Bannister, Greg Whisman, back Coach Mac Madsen, assistant coach row, Dave Belling, Scott Geroux, Joel Mike Stanton, second row, Storm Kranz, and Todd Erwin. State be given bids to the nationals," said Madsen. "But it is always a tough decision to make on who should go from this region." The national tournament will be held at Pine Hurst golf courst in Pine Hurst, North Carolina. The tourney will begin May 25-30. cz WEBER STATE-2110 OGDEN 84408 TUESDAY, MAY 11, 1982 Vol. 42 No. 53 Sunfest starts Thurs.

Frisbees, sun visors and tee-shirts will be handed out. while supplies last. by Steve Largent Signpost Editor-in-Chief Dr. Emil Hanson, assistant vice president for academic affairs, has announced a new class change policy that will become effective fall quarter 1982, in conjuction with the new registration procedures announced previously. Class changes will now be made on a preprinted change form that each student will receive at the time of registration. Each student will be allowed one change during the period of registration through the end of the first week of school. Any number of changes-adds or drops-can be made on this form, including a complete new schedule if necessary. There will be no charge for this one change. After the one free change form has been used, or after the first week of school, there will be a $5 charge for each additional change. "W" withdrawls will continue to be issued for classes dropped after the third week. It is hoped that this new policy will accomodate students who require changes before the start of school or during the first week. Dr. Hanson expressed hope that, with the new registration policy and new class change policy, "ghost registration" and other problems encountered in registration can be eliminated or controlled. Registration for fall quarter 1982 is scheduled to begin July 19. Seniors will be allowed to register on the first two days, juniors the next two and so on until each class has had two days. New freshmen will register as previously scheduled. After each class has had their two days, registration will be open to any who did not take advantage of the special days for their class. No registration will take place on weekends. Students who will be out of state during the summer may select their classes before they leave, and have a friend or relative register and pay their fees for them at the proper time. The registrar's and cashier's offices will be on summer hours beginning June 7. The registration office will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays. The cashier's office will be open from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Fridays. Both offices will be closed o;. all holidays during the summer months. Summer quarter schedules are now available at the college bookstore, and fall quarter schedules should be available within the next two weeks. Summer school registration begins Monday Currently enrolled students may register for summer classes beginning Monday May 17, and may continue to register during regular office hours through Thursday, June 10, at the registration windows of the Administration Building.

|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.|
