Education to Be Topic of Meeting Reaction to the report "Education in Utah: A Call to Action" will be the bill-of-fare during a town meeting Nov. 30, at 7 p.m., in the auditorium of the Wattis Business Building. The meeting was called to give local residents an opportunity to express their reactions to a recent report prepared by the Education Reform Committee organized by Governor Matheson and the state legislative leadership. Dr. Rodney Brady, president of WSC and co-sponsor of the town meeting, said, "This gathering is being held in response to the special challenges now faced by our educational system." According to Ronald L. Stephens, state representative and member of the Education Reform Committee, the meeting is open to the public. Top Debaters to Come to Weber Top debate teams in the United States will be at Weber State College Nov. 25-27 for the Golden Spike Debate Tournament. Competition will take place in the Social Science and Wattis Business buildings from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Topics to be debated are the quality of higher education in the U.S. and disposal of hazardous waste. According to David Berube, director of forensics at Weber State, there will be 25-30 schools participating in the Golden Spike Debate Tournament. They include the University of Texas, Air Force Academy, UCLA, the University of Arizona, and several institutions from within the state. "Because we want to go for a national championship it is important for coaches and critics to see a good debate program," said Berube. "Hosting a major debate tournament is part of that," he said. During the three days of competition, there will be four divisions of debate and ten individual events. The debates will culminate in a sudden-death single elimination bracket narrowing the field to four finalists. Individual events will consist of Dramatic Readings, Poetry, and Prose. The public is invited and the events are free. For further details contact Berube or David Allen at 626-6438. by Rae Dawn Olbert Managing Editor There has been a rash of vandalism on campus recently. A number of broken locks have been found in the men's and women's locker rooms in the Swenson Gymnasium. After one of the staff members at the gym "lost" his lock, a search was made of the building and surrounding grounds. His lock and four others were found in a garbage can inside the gym. " The locks had been kicked or hit with some sort of instrument and broken on the inside," said Detective Don Johnson, the officer responding to the complaint. He explained that the locks had to be severed with a bolt cutter in order to- remove them from the lockers. Johnson feels that the vandalism is the work of different people, although he believes that one person has broken quite a few of the locks. The police have no leads as to who might have broken the locks, but are reminding people that vandalism is a misdemeanor. Even though this same sort of vandalism occurred last year, John H. Knight, campus recreation coordinator, said he was " surprised at the boldness of the vandalism," and mentioned that " a large number of locks can be broken in a comparatively short time." Knight believes that the majority of the vandalism was done in one or maybe two nights. The staff at the Swenson Gymnasium have taken measures to guard against this type of vandalism happening again by checking all ID's after 5 p.m. and on weekends and allowing entrance only at the the west end of the gym. Community members may continue to use the gym. To help combat this vandalism and possible theft, Knight urges everybody to make sure their lockers are locked and to report anything suspicious. -s ' , ' ' . . f 4- i te - - 'a hi - y g$ ""' '"V j ....

|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.|
