The new building is designed to take care of the problems now facing the faculty, staff and students of the school of Allied Health Sciences, which is now scattered in 12 different locations across campus. The new building, as described by Dr. Reed Str-ingham, dean of the school of Allied Health Sciences, will be a beautiful addition to the campus. It will be built between the library and the stadium parking lot. The cost of the project is estimated at $4.5 million. Unlike other buildings on campus that are designed with with one floor stacked on top of the other, floors on the new building will be tiered in a kind of step-formation on more than one level. The final draft of the plan will be ready by Dec. 1, 1983, and work may start by spring quarter, 1984. According to Stringham, there will be a greatimprovement- in the school of Allied Health Sciences with the addition of the new building. The students will have additional space to use educational equipment, better access to the laboratories on a regular basis, and improvement in the general atmopsphere for learning. In addition, there will be facilities for use of audio-visual materials which are not available now. "Our program is designed to train Health Care students in simulation of clinical situations. The new building will facilitate this a great deal," said Stringham. He added that the simulation nature of the program will save time for students who will be able to go straight to work at hospitals when posted, rather than trying to learn on-the-job. The new building marks the first phase of improvement for the school of Allied Health Sciences. Only part of the Allied Health Sciences programs will be housed by the new building. Programs such as ultra sound technology, dental hygiene, x-ray technology, nuclear medicine technology, and radiation therapy technology will remain in the old building until the second phase is approved.

Twelve Weber Students Will Attend III A by Lisa Wright-Largent Editor in Chief A resolution calling for a coal severance tax to help fund higher education is one of the pieces of legislation to be debated at the Utah Intercollegiate Assembly (UIA) on Nov. 2-5. UIA draws students from the colleges and universities in the state to introduce, debate and pass resolutions that pertain to higher education in a congressional-type setting. The resolutions that are approved are then sent to the State Legislature to go through the legislative process. Twelve students from Political Science 390 will be heading to the capitol tomorrow. The assembly meets in the Senate and House Chambers of the Capitol Building. Jeff Noland and Greg Richens will be members of the Senate. House members from Weber State will be Sheldon Allred, Nathan Bell, Curtis Breitweiser, Dave Broderick, Brad Howell, Bruce Richeson, Lisa Hurtado, Kenny Osbone and Jean Taura. Scott Musser will be attending UIA as a staff member. Two of Weber State's participants hold key leadership positions in this year's assembly. Bruce Richeson is the speaker of the House and Lisa Hurtado will act as speaker pro temp. Hurtado is taking the place of Brad Howell. Because of a policy change, Howell is unable to hold an executive office in the assembly because he is a voting member of the Council of Student Body Presidents. There are three top priority resolutions that the Weber State delegation will be submitting at UIA. The first is the the coal severance resolution authored by Richeson. The resolution calls for a severance tax on all coal produced and sold in Utah, with the revenue raised to go toward higher education.The second is Howell's resolution, calling for a master's degree in accounting to be established at WSC. The third is a resolution written by Allred. His resolution addresses the possibility of a full tuition refund to students if they withdraw from school because of medical reasons. Last year, two of the five resolutions sent by UIA to the Legislature were from Weber State.

|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.|
