Elections Committee Faculty vote 187-89 to rescind open hour by Rae Dawn Olbert Editor-in-Chief Members of the faculty have voted, by more than a two-to-one margin, to rescind the action of the faculty senate to create an open hour, effective fall quarter of 1985. The vote to rescind the action was 187-89. According to Dr. Dick Rogers, chair of the faculty senate, approximately 74 percent of the faculty participated in the secret ballot referendum. Rogers said if members of the faculty are not satisfied with the actions of the faculty senate, they can call for a referendum by submitting a petition with the signatures of 10 percent of the general faculty. Rogers said he is "bound by law" to call a special meeting once a petition has been submitted in order to determine the need for special ballot. Although the faculty has voted against the open hour, the final decision will rest with Academic Vice President Dr. Robert Smith. Smith was unavailable for comment at press time. He said during the last four years, there has been three issues that have created this much controversy among the faculty. The first was funding to create salary equity across campus, while Dr. Gerald Grove was serving as chair of the faculty senate. Last year, documenting teaching excellence was the issue, and currently the focus has been on the open hour. Rogers said he was pleased with the way the special faculty meeting proceeded. "Both sides handled themselves well," he said, commenting on the fact that issues were discussed, and personal feelings were left out of the meeting.

|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.|
