Concerts - A losing proposition? by Mark Jones Concerts at the Dee Events Denter are supposed to self -supportive, yet $7,000 of the ASWSC budget will go to concerts next year. The ASWSC budget receives its funding through student fees, which were raised by $3 last month. According to Richard Hackwell, cultural affairs vice president of ASWSC, the $7,000 will be used to cover the difference between expected concert costs of $52,000 and expected ticket receipts of $45,000. "Concerts at the Dee Events Center will operate at a loss for a short time, until we get an established program. However, I see concerts to be a moneymaker for ASWSC in the future," Hackwell said. He added that, though concerts are presently operating at a loss, they are providing a service for trie students and effectively utilizing and publicizing the Dee Events Center. The University of Utah and Utah State University also operate their concerts at a loss. The two schools plan to lose $35,000 and $21,000 respectively next year in concerts. However, their concert programs are subsidized, which means their students can purchase concert tickets at a reduced ticket rate. "Since we do not subsidize our concerts, we have to charge as much for tickets as the professional promoters charge," Hackwell said. This year's budget allowed a $10,000 buffer against loss on concerts. $7,000 of that buffer was used to cover the loss taken on the Peter Frampton concert. $5,000 was later recovered by the more successful Rick Springfield concert. The remaining money left in the buffer fund will be carried over into next year's fund. Todd Boothe, ASWSC's cultural vice presidentelect, does not expect to lose any money on next year's concerts. "We were trying to schedule the 'Commodores,' but they were too expensive. Right now we. are working on bringing in the Go-Go's. Pat Benatar or Air Supply. With these groups, we should pretty well break even," Boothe 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.|
