WSC student named Regents' finalist Weber State student Rick Southwick, currently the student member of the Utah State Board of Regents, has been named a finalist to be reappointed to the Regents position for the upcoming year. Southwick was selected as a finalist last weekend by the Utah Council of Studentbody Presidents at their meeting in St. George. Two other finalists were also named. They are: Mont Wright, former studentbody president at Utah State University, and Brian Hatch, a student at the University of Utah. Utah Governor Scott M. Matheson will name one of the three to the student position on the Board of Regents. The governor will probably announce his selection sometime in June. The new Regent would assume his position on July 1. If he is reappointed, Southwick would become the first student Regent to serve a second term. Environmental sculpture proposed by visiting artist by Bright Orgi Staff Reporter The construction of an environmental sculpture project at Weber State is being proposed by a visiting environmental artist in conjunction with his arts students at the college. Although the proposed project has not yet received approval, the visiting artist, Naj Wicoff, is to meet with school authorities for a presentation today. The presentation will provide an opportunity for Wicoff and his students to explain the projects-how it will.be financed as well as other relevant information. Wikoff teaches the process of creating works of art for public spaces. He has come up with the idea of the environmental project designed to be constructed at the east front of the campus. According to Wicoff, he has been developing the hands-on project with his students. He asked them to look for potential sites for sculpture around the community. They chose the east front of the WSC campus as the most suitable over 11 other sites in the city. Wicoff described the sculpture as con sisting ot two nine-foot towers, two parallel dark brick walls sliced through. The walls, which are solstice sun tunnels, reflect the ecological tensions of the Wasatch fault. The entire community is built on the walls providing a viewing platform that concentrates attention on the adjacent Wasatch Mountains, the distant Great Salt Lake and Promontory" Point. He added that the total 98 feet length of the the sculpture reflects the number of students in the first Weber Academy class. The two walls reflect the number of faculty at that time. The renowned artist had no fears about financing the project if he is given the go-ahead. When asked to specify how, he said, "We expect to fund the sculpture with donated material, in-kind D services and volunteer labor.

He concluded that the college landscaping committee must review the proposal to determine if it is practical or not. Con vo audience enjoys hypnotising presentation by Lisa Wright Managing Editor I went to Thursday's convocation ready to be entertained by comedianhypnotist, Tom DeLuca, who is billed as one of the tops on the college circuit. - However, as the convocation progressed, I found myself a participant in the hypnotism segment of the program, so this account of the convocation will be rather short because I can't remember most of what took place. For two-and-a-half hours DeLuca held the audience captive with his off-beat humor and the antics of those he had hypnotised, (at least that is what I have been told). The convocation was divided in two parts. The first hour or so DeLuca devoted to what he called BSP a parody on ESP. He told the audience that by looking at the first two letters of the acronym, they would be able to tell what BSP was all about. DeLuca bantered back and forth with the audience throughout his presentation, he even went so far as nicknaming one member of the audience "Scooter." DeLuca indicated that he has been blessed with psychic powers and he told the audience a few of his unusual predictions for the upcoming year. The Secretary of Defense, Casper Wienberger would develop a low budget food product called "Wienburger Helper." Richard Simmons, the king of dieters, will fall from power because the men of America will finally revolt and when they discover that Simmons wears woman's underwear. His final prediction was that James Watts would find a way to get rid of nuclear waste and feed the I if i k Thursday's notist Tom convo audience enjoyed hyp-DeLuca, the hypnotised par- bignpost pnoto Laur: ticipants and spotters who all took a tive part in Thursday's convocation. .4 ie Cali n ac- poor at the same time. Watts would introduce "Shreaded Nuclear Waste" a food supplement for the poor. DeLuca moved into the second hour of the convocation by calling for volunteers to be hypnotised. Originally 15 went onto the stage, however those who were unable to be put under didn't remain. Because I was one of those hypnotised, the remainder of the convocation is rather sketchy. I remember hearing DeLuca talking to us, and I can remember watching the other people do things, but I don't remember doing many of them myself. Friends later informed me that I acted 5 years old, lost my "der-riere" and had it come sailing back to me, started to shed my cloths when it reached 120 degrees and many others things. For a better understanding of what really went on at yesterday's convocation, the reader will have to see the' photo. For those of you who didn't attend you'll never know the fun you missed.

|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.|
