Brady will trade in his cap and gown to join the fourth estate. In a statement to their employees, Bonneville International Corporation announced Brady's new position as president of the corporation, effective July 1, 1985. Brady earned bachelor of science and master of business administration degrees from the University of Utah and a doctor of business administration degree from Harvard University. He served as assistant secretary of 4he U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare during the early 1970's, and has been a national leader of. the Boy Scouts of America. Brady currently serves on the board of Smith's Management Corp, Flying "J" Oil Corp., Western Mortgage Loan Corp. and Bonneville International. Bonneville International, with headquarters in Salt Lake City, is "a major corporation in electronic journalism and broadcasting," said Brady, and has "several thousand employees." According to Brady, Bonneville International, which is owned by the LDS Church, owns 14 radio and TV stations across the country, including KSL and Channel 5 in Salt Lake. Los Angeles, San Fran cisco, Seattle, Dallas, Kansas City, Chicago and New York are the bases for other stations. Brady said the corporation also owns a TV production company and seven satellite transponders, which are used to relay TV signals around the world, as well as a Washington news bureau, which provides news around the world. Although he has known about the appointment for three or four months, Brady said the announcement was not made until the current president, Arch Madsen, announced his retirement. Brady said he is "very excited" about accepting the position. "For many years I've had a great interest in the media ... a desire to provide leadership to the media. This position fits in with what I've wanted to do for many years." He said his new duties will include setting the direction for the corporation, developing long-range plans, and selecting and motivating personnel. Brady said one of the most important aspects of his job will be to "hire the right people to get the job done." According to Brady, the committee charged with finding a new WSC president is meeting once a week, and sometimes more, to examine the credentials of the applicants. Brady said the committee should have four or five recommendations in the next few weeks. i 4 We bid a final farewell to the ASVVSC elections ol 19H.1.

Todd Anderson, ASWSC presidentelect, Mike Waldron, executive vice president-elect and Kelly Miles, academic vice president-elect, met with advisors Grant Protzman, Marcia Galli, and Judy Hurst. Anderson said the officers and advisors met to discuss organizing and recruiting committee officers and committee members for next year. The officers also brainstormed ideas and some general goals for next year. The officers expressed their excitement about ASWSC. "We are looking forward to an exciting year," said Waldron. "We want the studentbody to know they are going to be represented," said Miles. Anderson said the officers are working on finding students to fill chairman and committee members of the ac tivities committee, the academic standing committee, and with specific senators next year. A new application form will be distributed to help bring in diverse talent and experience from the studentbody. Anderson said those students interested should get involved in the next few weeks. "We have had a lot of interest from people. Students should get involved now, because they won't get a chance next year." Miles said the meeting with the advisors helped the officers understand how the ASWSC organization operates. "We were impressed with the advisors." "We have started working now for next year," said Waldron. "This year was a new organization (for ASWSC). A lot of the kinks have been worked out. Next year it will be experience rather than experiment." Anderson said the officers discussed the budget for next year. A senate budget hearing is scheduled for later this month. Weber NUSAT team learns patience, sees no cause for concern by Mark Espenschied Managing Editor With their satellite up, antenneas up, and a little rest behind their crew and equipment, the NUSAT team at Weber State were anxious to talk with their satellite Monday night. Contact was made with the satellite, designed to help the FAA with the calibration of their radar, Saturday, but with some of the return message coming to them garbled, technicians at Weber decided to wait a few days before attempting contact again. "We just need to fine tune our equipment," advisor Robert Twiggs said Monday. "Were not terribly worried about the satellite, we just need to step back and get test equipment from the FAA." The FAA was anxious to start using the satellite when they learned contact had been made. Weber informed the agency further tests were needed to make final adjustments on the satellite and receiving equipment before projected normal service could begin. Twiggs said it looks like the solar batteries on NUSAT are re-charging and the team is fairly optimistic that everthing will work well. When NUSAT can start its normal operation schedule depends on the amount of success the team expeiienc-ed on Monday night. Communications equipment for the project is located in Building 4.

|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.|
