Signpost photo Rodn?y Wright Officers express need for structural changes by Kathy Kendcll Gov't Affairs Reporter They don't all agree on how it should be done but the consensus of most ASWSC officers is that changes in student government structure are necessary. At last Thursday's legislative council meeting, Executive Vice President Bret England introduced a resolution. The resolution would essentially give the academic senate equal power with the legislative council. All decisions would pass through both student organizations. ASWSC President Bruce Richeson disagrees with England's resolution on the basis that it would "bog down" the process. "The academic senate should not have equal power with the legislative council, if they did they would accomplish nothing because of fighting and bickering," Richeson said. Public Relations Vice President Cindee Leavitt also sees problems with equal power. "There are many bills that are so trivial they wouldn't need the approval of both the senate and council," Leavitt said. "The bills involving monev should go through both however." According to Leavitt, there is not much financial accountability for officers under the current system. "I had $7,000 this year to spend on programs, all I needed was an advisor's signature," Leavitt said. All officers agree that the academic senate should have more power and be more in touch with the students. Todd Boothe, cultural vice-nresidep' said he would eliminate many present offices and establish what he calls a "programming board" to make policy decisions. Leavitt agreed. "I would eliminate all vice presidents except executive, and have a board with legislative powers. Academic Vice President Dave Allen agrees with the need to consolidate offices and duties. "Many responsibilities could be combined and some offices eliminated," Allen said.

|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.|
