ASWSC vows useful activities by Kathy Kendell Every spring, students are barraged with promises from prospective candidates for student offices, on a variety of different issues. And every fall student hopes seem to fade with the autumn colors, for such promises are rarely carried out. Yet for some reason this year seems to be different. The Richeson administration appears to be actually keeping student concerns a number one priority. According to ASWSC President Bruce Richeson, his vice presidents deserve much of the credit for such an atmosphere. "My VPs this year are of a very high quality. I know they will get their jobs done, which frees me to carry out my own duties and responsibilities." There is a definite intention to change direction on the part of ASWSC officers. "We are moving away from the punch-and-cookies approach and trying to meet the needs of our student Manilow in concert Tuesday Barry Manilow, world renowned popular composer, will appear tomorrow night at 8 p.m. in concert in the Weber State College Dee Events Center. Well known for such popular favorites as "Man-dy," "I Write The Songs," and "Ready To Take A Chance Again," Manilow made his first mark in popular music with Bette Midler in 1972, ' following years of musical training. He co-produced Ms. Midler's first album, "The Divine Miss M," and gained a measure of recognition in her first national tour. Barry's first solo tour began in 1974 and was followed by a string of 22 consecutive Top Forty hits. Each of his ten albums has gone at least platinum, selling over one million copies, with 2 million, three more selling 3 million, and one album having gone quadruple platinum-over 4 million copies sold to date. population," said Academic V.P. David Allen. In ASWSC's attempt to adapt to a varied student population, many new programs are being planned. "We are working now on seminars, such as budget planning, for newly married students. Also in the works is a seminar for those students who have recently been through a divorce," said Richeson. According to Allen, balance is the key term to understanding the new direction. Planning activities of different types so that all students may participate in what appeals to them is being emphasized.All ASWSC officers express a fervent desire to hear from the students themselves on acjivities they would like to see at Weber State. "Each of the officers have an 'open door' policy. We want very much to have student input, " said Richeson. "We, as officers, can only do so much. Our success depends largely on student involvement." i .( J) i 1 : ' ' -. . . ' I X V- ; 1 In addition to his musical accomplishments, Barry Manilow has also drawn high ratings for his two television specials and has appeared in two cable TV productions, both of which challenged the network's offerings in ratings. Appearing with Mr. Manilow will be the Weber State Jazz Ensemble, "Choralition," which will accompany him on two numbers: "I Write the Songs" and "One Voice." Under the direction of Dr. File Photo Ron Wooden, Choralition has appeared recently dat the World's Fair in Knox-ville, Tennessee, as well as playing in Nashville, Denver and Kansas City. After hearing Choralition perform, Manilow's agent approached them for the Dee Center concert.

|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.|
