Rich Staff Reporter Meeting celebrities and vocal groups such as James Stewart, the Beach Boys, Kenny Rogers and Barbara Mandrell would thrill most people, but to Lieutenant David Hestand, WSC assistant chief of police, "it's just part of my job." For the past ten years, Hestand has had the assignment of being a bodyguard for celebrities who entertain at WSC. Hestand has been involved in police work for 18 years. He worked as a highway patrolman for five years and as a deputy sheriff for three years in Texas. He moved to Utah with his wife and six of his eight children after receiving his position on the WSC police force. "The thing that amazes me the most, being with these people (celebrities), is hearing them talk about their $20,000 cars and huge homes," said Hestand. "Also, most celebrities have two different personalities, one on stage and another off. Bill Cosby is very withdrawn off stage and Larry Linville (Frank on the T.V. comedy of M.A.S.H.) is very outgoing." Most countrywestern performers want to meet their fans, but rock performers are not as concerned about their fans, Hestand said. "Some of the celebrities are paranoid and some are really outgoing. Most of them are generally friendly," said Hestand. When a celebrity comes to WSC, scheduling time is very tight for the assistant police chief. The entertainer usually arrives the night before the performance and stays in a major Salt Lake or Ogden hotel. Hestand contacts them and finds out what they want and need. He spends the following day with the celebrity. "I occasionally take them on tours," said Hestand. They often request to see . what is in the area. "Shopping sprees and visits to radio stations are also frequently requested." During the program, Hestand (see STARS on page 6) Conversion to semester system costly by Mayvonne Wells Staff Reporter EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second part of the two-part series about the semester and quarter schedules. The first story compared the two schedules. This story will focus on the advantages and disadvantages of each system. Comparing advantages of changing to the semester system to the costs of conversion is a major task, according to Emil Hanson, assistant vice president for academic support. Hanson compiled a report on the issue which was presented to the Board of Regents last spring. After studying the report, the commissioner of higher education directed the state's nine state-run colleges and universities to study the feasibility of converting to a semester calendar. Converting from the quarter system to a semester calendar would be both costly and time-consuming, Hanson said. New forms, catalogs and schedules would have to be designed and printed. Many administrative hours would be spent on establishing new graduation requirements and transferring credit hours from one system to the other, he added. However, after the initial cost of conversion is completed, the college could experience substantial savings in administrative operating costs, he said. This savings is due to one less registration period resulting in fewer opening and closing administration procedures, such as: mailings, computer related charges, grade reporting and changes, and admission (see COSTLY on page 3) Inside . . .

|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.|
