Tuesday, February 11, 1986 Vol. 46 No. 30 Subcommittee designates use of computer fees Sigiifsl pholoJetf Bylje. The victory bell rests in a field of snow in the southwest corner of the stadium. Reflections For whom does this bell toll? by JaNae Barlow Ass't News EditorFeatures In the snow next to the track in the Weber State Stadium sits a large bell with the inscription: Menerly Bell Company; Troy, N.Y., U.S.A.; A.D.' 1888. Its ring has been heard but a few times in the past ten years. Though scarcely remembered today, the bell began at Weber with great celebration and tradition. It had been the curfew bell for Ogden City, resting in the tower of City Hall since it was built in 1888. In 1938, when the building was to be demolished, the students of (then) Weber Junior College immediately began a campaign to obtain it. In a City Commissioners' meeting held on Oct. 24, 1938, Merle Allen and John Lindquist, Weber College (see BELL on page 3) by Loretta Park Ass't News EditorGov't Affairs CAPITOL HILL, SALT LAKE CITY The higher education appropriations subcommittee passed a proposal ensuring that student fees allocated for instructional computers be used in that area. The proposal is sponsored by Rep. Gayle F. McKeachine, (R)-Daggett, Uintah. It will go in effect in fiscal year '86-87. The proposal states that all institutions that have assesed student fees for instructional computers report the use of these fees to the Legislature. McKeachnie said he wants to ensure that student fees allocated for computers be used in that area. Sen. Lowell S. Peterson, (R)-Weber, spoke in favor of the proposal and asked if all student fees could not be reported to the committee. Dr. Stanford Cazier, president of Utah State University, said student fees are allocated by students. Students do not allow fees to go to areas they are not allocated for, and require a detailed report from the administator on how student fees are spent. Other business discussed in the committee is requiring institutions of higher education to report actual enrollment figures beginning in 1986-87. Currently some institutions report target figures, while others report actual figures, according to McKeachnie. This will help the committee when deciding budgets for the coming year, (see FEES on page 8) Garn 'walks through' space trip Senator Jake Garn will be speaking this Thursday, Feb. 13 in conjunction with the convocations series. Garn will speak on his April, 1985 shuttle flight on the Discovery. His presentation will include a 24-minute video tape on the shuttle experience, which he will narrate. The video will begin with breakfast on the day of lift off and end with touch down at Cape Canaveral, Florida, Kennedy Space Center. After the video, he will speak on the Challenger accident for 10-15 minutes. The last few minutes will be taken up with questions. In November of 1984, Garn was selected by NASA to train as a payload specialist for a flight launched from the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida on April 12, 1985. He was originally assigned to the Challenger but, because of a delay with a satellite, Garn was switched to the Discovery. During the seven-day flight, Garn performed medical tests and measurements, included tests on the I I V V i '!: lni ii iiw i mm i I laMMiinimiii IT in in r Mnm miii mi !

Nadauld announced his decison to include a vice president for student affairs in his administrative staff. How to implement the position and when, is "a question of timing and of resources," said Nadauld in his memo. Until next year's budget has been decided and input received from planning committees, a final commitment is being withheld. Former president Rodney H. Brady made the deci sion last year to implement the new vice president's position. Due to his resignation, the decision fell to the new president, Nadauld. The first opportunity of filling this position will be given to applicants from within the college. Todd Anderson, ASWSC president, said they (AS WSC) were pleased with the decision. The absence of a student affairs vice president was ne of the major (organizational) flaws of the college ... a problem that's been prevalent for years," he said. According to Anderson, the addition of the student affairs vice president would enhance WSC's ability to coordinate services, should lead to increased recruitment and help retain students once at WSC. Anderson feels the major benefit of the position is organiation of student affairs. As the programs now stand, they are administered under at least three different departments. Consolidation of the student services would aid students from registration to graduation; help them enjoy their college experience more; and also make it a little easier for them, Anderson said. Toni Weight, acting dean of student affairs, has advocated the implementation of a new vice president. "The decision ... is a good one. It will give students a more effective role" in the decision-making process at Weber State. Although there are still some problems to be ironed out, she feels the position will benefit students greatly, giving them an equal voice in the government at WSC.

|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.|
