The state Board of Regents has announced tentative plans for a 12.5 percent tuition surcharge if they are faced with cuts by Governor Scott Matheson. Matheson intends to cut at least $3.6 million from the budget for higher education unless third quarter tax revenues increase substantially. Smith said that tax revenues did im prove in the third quarter, but it is not yet known by how much. "We're not out of the woods yet," he said. "We expect an announcement from the governor's office on November 14, the regents will then meet on November 15, and winter registration opens on November 16," said Dr. Smith in explaining the situation. He said the registration book carries a notice warning students to expect the surcharge. Smith said the regents will not take a budget cut but will instead impose a 12.5 percent surcharge. It could be as far away as late December before the fee is charged. "For now, students should follow the tuition schedule in the winter quarter manual," said Dr. Smith. "But be prepared for an additional surcharge." Congress Declares Nuclear Arms Week by Kevin Wiser Staff Reporter A joint resolution, resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives, designated the week beginning Nov. 6, 1983, as National Nuclear Arms Education Week. The resolution stated that for the world to be free of the nuclear threat, all people should engage in discussions that not only focus on the risks posed by an accelerating nuclear arms race but also explore new ways of thinking about national security in an increasingly interdependent world. The purpose of such discussions is to educate everyone about nuclear war and bring more people into the nuclear arms debate. In alliance with this resolution, the newly formed group, S. C.A.N. (Students Concerned About Nuclear Arms) will sponsor a number of activities in correlation with National Nuclear Arms Education Week. S. C.A.N, is an organization of WSC students and other interested individuals, such as faculty, staff, and community members, who share a common belief that the nuclear arms race is the central issue of our time. The goal of this organization and Nuclear Arms Education Week is to promote public awareness and understanding of the issues surrounding nuclear arms and to provide an open forum in which concerned in dividuals can study and discuss both sides of the issues. In light of this goal, Nuclear Arms Education Week at WSC will provide a variety of mediums from which the public can educate themselves, such as literature tables, films and lectures. The literature table will be located in the south side of the UB. Three films, Utah Ground Zero, Nuclear Phonograph, and The Last Epidemic will be shown in the Wattis Business Building. Lectures will be given by Dr. G. Craig Gundy, assistant professor of health sciences in Allied Health; Dr. David Tripp, associate professor of physics; Dr. Robert Smith, vice president for Academic Affairs; and Reverend Thomas Starr, assistant Pastor at St. Joseph's Church. Schedule of Events Monday, 12 noon, Dr. Smith will speak on "Statutes of the development of Nuclear Arms." Tuesday, 1 p.m., Reverend Starr will lecture on The Roman Catholic Bishops -Pastoral Letter, "The Challenge of Peace." Wednesday, 1 p.m., Dr. Tripp will discuss "Physics of Atomic Energy and the Effects of Nuclear Blast." Dr.' Gundy's topic will be "Effects of Radiation, a Human Ecosystem." Films will be held Thursday at noon and on Tuesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the Watlis Building.

|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.|
