L . 1 '; ' v .. .... ; Richeson wins by a landslide New ASWSC President Bruce Richeson Bruce Richeson, currently serving as ASWSC Executive Vice President, was voted in as student body president for the 1982-83 school year by a wide margin last night, beating his opponent Conrad Hafen by 690 votes in a preliminary tally. The final count in the presidential contest was Richeson's 1086 to Hafen's 396. A total of 1515 votes were cast on the presidential contest.Richeson, 22, is a junior majoring in political science with a minor in French. He is a 1977 graduate of Ben Lomond high school, where he held the offices of senate president as a junior and student body president as a senior. A member the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, Richeson took the election after a week of hectic campaigning, including the use of a loudspeaker-equipped aircraft, which culminated in the two voting days ending yesterday. In other election news, the race between Brett England and Tiny Scriven for the Executive V.P. post resulted in a runaway victory for England, 1095 to 355. England will replace his running mate Bruce Richeson in the Executive V.P. slot. The head-to-head contest for Academic V.P. between Dave Allen and John Johnson came down to the wire, with Allen narrowly edging out Johnson 731 to 711. Informed sources said that the votes for this office were counted three time before the results were announced to an anxious crowd waiting in the ASWSC offices. Allen will succeed Rick Southwick in the post. In the close race for Activities V.P., Greg Richens beat out Bryon Saxton by a narrow margin of 766 to 672. Richens will replace Tammy Hamer. In the race for Student Services Vice President, Michelle Blake defeated write-in candidate Heather Car-michael 1184 to 188. Cindee Leavitt was elected Public Relations V.P., defeating Steve Garner by a healthy margin. Leavitt succeeds Faye Hardy. Todd Boothe, who ran unopposed, was elected Cultural Vice President.In the student senate elections, all of the candidates were unopposed, with Youssef Khodor winning the seat from the School of Allied Health, Mark Storey representing the School of Business and Faisal Al-Darweesh taking the post in the School of Technology. Brian Heaton is the new senator from the School of Humanities, Brad Howell will represent the students from the School of Social Sciences and Yoon Mi Hamrick is the new representative in the School of Natural Sciences. There were no candidates running from the School of Education, so that post will go unfilled. The total number of votes counted was only 1457, indicating a voter turnout of only around 14, slightly better than last year's result of 12. WEBER STATE-2110 OGDEN 84408 LJ FRIDAY, APRIL 16,. 1982 Vol. 42 No. 45 Allied Health convo goes unnoticed Due to the raucous distraction of student political campaigns, and a foul-up in convocation scheduling, an interesting and informative convocation by Dr. Clifford C. Snider, a noted Salt Lake City plastic surgeon, went almost unnoticed. The Dalglish, Larsen and Frank musical convocation was scheduled by ASWSC in direct conflict with the plastic surgeon's, presented as the highlight of Allied Health Services Week. Dr. Snider enlightened the audience with a slide presentation showing examples of skin transplants, face lifts and the reconstruction of various body parts. In cases involving skin transplants, Dr. Snider revealed the use of amimal and human tissues. Following an injury, animal skin is grafted onto the body temporarily, to kill infections and keep the wound clean. After the body rejects the animal tissue, human skin is grafted onto the wound. Skin from the victims own body is preferred, as it is seldom rejected by the body's immune system. Tissue from another person is more often than not rejected. Only 12 cases have been recorded in which the skin from another individual has been accepted. Dr. Snider was the physician in charge during one of those rare cases of another individual's skin being accepted. He successfully grafted the skin of a deceased cancer victim onto a boy who had suffered burns on over 92 of his body. Another case, this time involving body part reconstruction as well as skin grafting, has taken Dr. Snider five years to complete. The case involves a pilot who was disfigured by a plane crash. Dr. Snider rebuilt the man's nose, ear, eyelid, chin and part of his eye area. Slides were shown to demonstrate some of the techniques used. Face lifts, nose jobs, breast reconstruction following radical mastectomy, and other facets of cosmetic surgery were discussed. Dr. Snider is presently a professor and chairman of the division of plastic surgery at the University of Utah's College of Medicine.

|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.|
