Kansas Takes Bite Out of ASWSC Budget by Kathy Kendell Gov't Affairs Editor ASWSC went in the hole to the tune of $15,000 to $20,000 with the ill-fated Kansas concert. However, such a debt does not deter Cultural Vice President Laurie Bonnell from believing that students should be involved in the concert business. According to Bonnell, it's a matter of booking concerts that will sell. "We did everything we could to sell Kansas. In the end, it was Kansas who didn't sell Kansas," said Bonnell. "At this point, that group is in the low spot of their career. We shouldn't have booked them." The concert was set up by former Cultural V.P. Todd Boothe during last spring's campaign. "We needed to sell 5,000 tickets to break even and only sold Bonell said. Even at that, the money lost was less than originally thought. "We saved money in areas such as security and food service, so our losses were not that great and can be made up." According to Bonnell, ASWSC can do very well in the concert business if concerts are carefully planned and scheduled. "It hurt us that Barbara Mandrell and Rick Springfield were both scheduled within a week of Kansas," she said. There is money there to be made if schools work together and book top acts. One large hurdle to that success is the existence of J.C. McNeil and Company who book all major concerts in the Rocky Mountain area. "J.C. McNeil controls all the major markets Dee Events Center, BYU, and U of U," said Bonnell. "He is also in Idaho and Montana." Currently, area schools such as BYU and U of U are trying to gain control of their facilities. "We are considering working with other universities and offering $1.00 discount tickets to all students, so a WSC student could go to a concert at the University of Utah and get $1 off his ticket price." Bonnell feels that as concerts get better and colleges get control of the scheduling, financial success will follow. WSC Is Up-To-Date in Handicapped Services by Michael Bouy Staff Reporter Weber State College provides the most up-to-date services for handicapped students in Utah, according to LaMar Kap, director of Disabled Student Services. Over 400 disabled students attend WSC, coming from as far away as West Virginia to take advantage of the facilities provided here. "We're not in the same league as the specialized schools for the handicapped, like those for the hearing or mobility impaired," Kap said, "but we're a mainstream school. We don't have special classes, but we provide support services." Those services include special student tutors, interpreters, note-takers, student aides, and machine aids. Students are hired and paid through grants to the college for the handicapped. Last year the center employed 25 students as part-time readers and interpreters. So far this year, only 10 students have been hired. In spite of the present facilities, handicapped students say some needs are still to be met, such as providing more time between classes to get around campus and installing electric eye doors for those with mobility impairments.Future campus alterations that are being considered include installing a ramp to the Skyroom in the Union building, making the Swenson Gym more accessible, and providing better handicap facilities in the Browning Art Center. The disabled student center is tailored to meet the needs of each handicapped student, yet, Kap said, only 155 of the 410 students classified as disabled use the center. There are 27 visually impaired, 15 hearing impaired, and 23 mobility impaired students registered at the office. The remaining 90 students are classified as "others," meaning they have epilepsy or cerebral palsy. Handicap Awareness Day is scheduled for Thursday, November 10. Speaking at a special convocation that day will be Roger Crawford, the first handicapped student to be awarded a National Scholarship. Crawford was also offered an A.B.O. Tennis Scholarship to Weber State. Other scheduled activities are a talent show and wheelchair basketball game played by prominent community, administration, and studentbody members.

|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.|
