The action, that some Chuck Smith, was on campus yesterday have termed as a 'tempest in a teapot,' is interviewing students concerning causing quite a stir in the. local media. ., . ASWSC's cancellation of the Miss Weber How do WSC fees stack up? by Steve Largent $30.50 and Utah State gives $21 to the J , building fees. It might be helpful to men tion that the University of Utah has ap proved construction of a student services building and their students are currently paying higher fees to cover the cost of the building. Construction should soon begin on the building. The proposed student services building at Weber State was recently cancelled because it would have required an increase of $15 per student per quarter in the student fees. Thus, the building fee portion of student fees at Weber State will remain at $26.33, at least until 1996. see Fees on page 2 I Now that you know a little more about where your student fee money goes, you might think that you are getting a real deal or that you are being robbed. ! That is your decision, and to help you make it we will examine the student fee structure at other institutions of higher learning in Utah and the intermountain area. We can begin by examining the athletic fee portion of the total at Weber State, the University of Utah and Utah State. At Weber, $11.92 or a student's fees is earmarked for the athletic budget, while the figure is $10 at the U of U and $17 at Utah State. From these figures it is easy to see that Weber is right in the middle. In the area of activity fees (the amount that goes to fund the associated students organization), the amount allocated at Weber State is $4.50, $9 at Utah and $14 at Utah State. It should be noted here that neither Utah nor Utah State have an instructional related category, which Weber does. The money that Weber puts in the instructional related fund is taken directly from the activity fee at the other two schools. So if you add the instructional related portion at Weber State to the activity fee, the comparison is better. The new Weber State figure would be $3.65 for the activity fee. Building fees, which took the majority of the money from student fees at Weber State, also takes a big chunk at the other schools.

Bldg. 2.31 1 25 WSC takes budget betore Legislature by Lisa Wright Managing Editor On Jan. 31, Weber State officials will present arguments in defense of the proposed fiscal '84 operating budget to the State Legislature's Joint Appropriations Subcommitte on Higher Education. In the fall of '82, Weber submitted a proposal of $38.3 million to the Board of Regents, an increase of 27.1 percent over the $30.1 million operating budget of fiscal year '83. Dee Vest, director of budget and business operations, said that Weber's recommendation to the Board of Regents represented the true needs of the college to support the programs and the students who wish to attend. A cushion in the budget was not added. , - -The Regents' --$34.6 million recommendation to the State Legislature is $4 million less than Weber originally asked for; however this is the recommendation that Weber's president, Dr. Rodney H. Bradey, and the other WSC officials will be defending at the budget hearings. Pres. Brady admitted that the state's funds are very tight this year. That fact is evident in Governor Scott Matheson's recommendation. He opted for a meager 1.7 percent increase over Weber's '83 operating budget. Pres. Brady said, "The governor is in . the position of having to come up with a balanced budget. I think that he is willing to work with added money; however, the Legislature doesn't appear inclined to increase the taxes." The main areas that the college will be concentrating on in the budget hearings will be acquiring appropriate faculty and staff salaries and getting money to accomodate the growth in enrollment. One other area that Pres. Brady will emphasize is the importance of an increase in funds going to support personnel--that is counselors, maintenance people, etc. Pres. Brady pointed out that Weber has more students in relation to support personnel than any other institution in the state. Although the Regents' recommendation doesn't allow as much money as Weber would like, its adoption would enable WSC to pick up the enrollment pressure from the college's past growth. This would not take care of future growth. Dr. Emil Hanson, assistant vice president of academic services, has calculated a 1.28 percent increase in enrollment for next year. Even with the adoption of the Regent's recommendation, Vest stated that it would be impossible for the enrollment to continue to increase as it has in the past without the quality of education suffering. He said, "The college is committed to maintain quality. Either we admit everyone who knocks on our door and the quality slips, or we have to limit the enrollment. That is the trade-off." Although the situation appears to be bleak, Pres. Brady remains optimistic. "I am confident that Weber will receive its fair share," he said. "We have a very effective team representing us. We should do as well or better than our sister institutions when the final budget is passed." Convocation speaker explains the five steps to job hunting Employment expert Tom Jackson addressed a smajl crowd Thursday in the first convocation of the quarter; Jackson, who gave several pointers about finding a job, said that getting one is just a game and that students should have fun job hunting. Jackson said that the unemployment rate really isn't that bad. "If the unemployment rate is 15 percent, then the employment rate is 85 percent." He added, "The job rate is expanding, the number of potential jobs is growing, people are getting jobs." Tired of hearing everything blamed on the economy, Jackson said that there is no economy, "you are the economy." He said that those who are willing to put something into the economy will get something out of it. Jackson presented five steps to the job search. First, get a clear job target. Take one component of skill and one component of interest and then target a job. Second, discover all of the potential opportunities. He stated that 80 percent of the jobs available are not advertised. Students should discover all possible employers for their job target. Third, find out what employers are looking for, and then fourth, find out what you have to offer them. Jackson said, "Any employer will hire any individual if they are convinced they will gain more than it will cost them." Lastly, communicate the above information to the person who can make that decision, not the personnel office. The job applicant should be prepared to answer the question. "Why should I hire you?" Jackson continued.

|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.|
