Tuesday, October 15, 1987 Vol. 48 No. 6 Deer hunting 1987; The prospects look good! .as r j. , V ' V IX A i - I I.tt&A-'M, y A fiT-Hm ova r ( j 1 r A? With a mild winter last year and good fall weather, thousands of hunters will take to Utah's mountains this weekend for the general deer hunt, October 17-27. The word from Grant Jense, big game coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR), is, "With all factors considered, the general deer hunt should be one of Utah's best." During the severe winter of 1983-84, thousands of deer in Utah alone died. Since that time, the state's deer herds have been on the rebound, and the past two mild Editor's Note: Several radio stations across the state will be broadcasting emergency messages and weather forecasts for hunters during the general deer season, October 17-27. The stations are: KVNU-610 AM, Logan; KNEU-1250 AM, Roosevelt; KOAL-750 AM, Price; KMTI-1590 AM, Manti; and KSUB-590 AM in Cedar City. winters and increased herd populations have resulted in marked improvement. This may be one of the best deer hunts in quite a few years. Officers who contacted the area elk herds in northern Utah this week reported two things: some elk and plenty of deer. Below is a 1987 deer hunt forecast as compiled by the DWR. CIA plans to recruit despite protests Langley, Va. (CPS)-Despite campus protests and budget cuts, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) plans to accelerate its recruiting of college students, an agency spokeswoman said. Plans for a new eight-week summer internship program in which students must promise not to divulge what they're doing or how much money they're making were revealed in a letter sent to campus counsellors last month. In addition, the agency will recruit at 200 campuses this academic year to seek out "the best and the brightest students" interested in careers with the CIA, spokeswoman Sharon Foster said. Foster said budget cuts have forced the CIA to alter its recruiting style from its traditional "shotgun approach" this year. "If the agency needs employees with math backgrounds, for example, recruiters will visit schools with outstanding mathematics programs," said Foster. Shouting opposition to U.S. policy in Central America, students at the universities of Colorado, Minnesota, Massachusets and other schools protested the agency's recruiting on their campuses during the 1986-87 year. Demonstrations, however, won't persuade the agency to stop recruiting at colleges, Foster said. The CIA is invited by college officials to recruit at schools, Foster explained. "We're happy to go where we're invited. Even though there have been a lot of demonstrations, we'll still recruit places where we've been invited." Foster would not say how many students the CIA plans to interview or hire during the 1987-88 year. Northern Region Western Box Elder is offering some of the best deer hunting in the northern region of the state, but the area received heavy pressure last year. In the Cache area, the deer population has recovered well, but the area is not up to full potential. Rich County areas have reported good deer hunting, and the herd populations have recovered from years past. Rich County is an excellent choice for this "season since a' lot 'of "pressure 'is not expected this season. Reports from the Monte Cristo area indicate lots of deer. The Uintah North Slope area has recovered from bad winters with what may be the best population in 15 years. However, a good deal depends on weather conditions. The deer population in the Kamas areas is much better than last year, but not as good as it was in the- early 1980s. A good deal of Chalk Creek is private. Davis County is now at carrying capacity and is offering good hunting for those who know where and how to hunt. Central Region For the Tooele, Juab, Salt Lake, Utah, Sanpete, and Wasatch counties, the hunt is a limited entry, buck only hunt. All other units are general buck only. Check these areas before the hunt. (see HUNT on page 9) WSC fund raising game plays well Sheila Christensen Senior Reporter "Building a foundation for the future," the theme for Weber State College's $13 million centennial gift program, is also the basis for the college's new fund raiser, "Educationopoly." In the course of promoting the centennial, Sheldon Young, the owner of NICE corporation, came up with the idea of a premium for a fund raiser. He worked with Kent Merrill, owner of an advertising agency, who created the game they're calling "Educationopoly." Young, a member of the WSC Foundation, has donated his time, money and facilities to develop the board game. Young and Merrill obtained permission from Parker Brothers to base the game on the popular "Monopoly," said Dr. Spainhower, campaign director. The game is played on a board .similar to "Monopoly," but Parker Brothers required the blocks on the board be larger, the direction of play reversed, and Community Chest and Chance be renamed. They became "Foundation" and "Opportunity." It plays much like "Monopoly," except that players acquire academic degrees instead of property. Replacing rent, utilities and taxes, players pay tuition and service fees instead. The more degrees a player holds, the higher his service charges. Historical events are recounted on the Opportunity cards. Assistant development officer Rob Alexander Jr. was the facilitator of history for the game. Backs of the degree cards also provide notes on WSC's history, with such facts as, "Weber State College has the only teaching crime lab in the western United States." One hundred billboards sporting the slogan, "It's your turn," have been donated for 30 days by Regan Advertising. The billboards have been placed throughout Utah, with the highest concentration north of Salt Lake City, Spainhower said.

|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.|
