Michelle Blake, student services vice president for the Associated Students of Weber State College, said that activities are designed to point out to college students and administrators the difficulties of being handicapped. She said that while Weber State does not have many facilities that are inaccessible to the handicapped, there are still many physical barriers for these students. Ms. Blake said, "There is plenty of handicapped parking, for example, in the parking lot in front of the Browning Center, and there are plenty of ramps leading up to the building, but once you get inside there are stairs going up and stairs going down." Ms. Blake said that on the day of the event clocks will be covered, stairways blocked off and signs placed on doorways that are inaccessible to the handicapped, encouraging students to find other entrances. Students will also have the chance to become more acquainted with those who have physical handicaps by participating in blind "beeper" baseball or in wheelchair bowling or basketball. "A lot of people are scared of the handicapped. If they can come in and play basketball with them they will begin to understand them and become more aware of some of the things they are going through," said Ms. Blake. On Thursday blind baseball will begin at 8 a.m. in the field west of the Social Science Building. At 9 a.m. wheelchair basketball will begin in the Shepherd Union Building ballroom and from 9 a.m. until noon music and displays will be in the SUB lobby. A convocation lecture featuring Tom Sullivan from the movie "If You Could See What I Hear" will be held at noon in the Austad Auditorium of the Browning Center for the Performing Arts. After the convocation there will be a panel discussion of handicap problems with Sullivan and handicapped WSC students as panelists. All activities are free and the public is invited.

Blind musician to give convo Tom Sullivan, famed author and musician, will speak Thursday, November 11 at noon in the Browning Fine Arts Center as part of the convocation series. Blind since birth, Sullivan will be the highlight speaker at the second annual Handicap Awareness Day. Sullivan sees life as a process of choices, and he chooses to laugh at situations that make most people uncomfortable. Learning to live with his "inconvenience from birth," Sullivan found early on that a challenge is just a problem waiting to be solved. He attended Harvard majoring in child psychology. Music has played an important role in Sullivan's life, and several of his songs are included in the movie "If You Could Se What I Hear." Sullivan is also active in humanitarian organizations dedicated to encouraging other people to overcome their handicaps. In 1969 Sullivan married Patricia Steffen in Tucson, and they are now the parents of two children, Blythe and Tommy. The dramatic climax of the movie is based on a true incident when young Blythe fell into the swimming pool. Only Sullivan's acute sense of hearing saved her from drowning. Sullivan is looking ahead to more artistic professional and physical challenges. "It all gets down to choices," he maintains, "I choose to laugh-to live." The movie "If You Could See What I Hear" will play Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 7 and 9:30 p.m. in U.B. room 338. Attendence to the convocation and movie is free.

|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.|
