Friday, March 14, 1986 VT i Faculty meeting results with budget proposal by Loretta Park Ass't News EditorGov't Affairs Faculty members across campus have sent suggestions on how to cut the budget to Dr. Rosemary Conover, chair of the faculty senate. The faculty senate was broughtup-to-date yesterday on what these suggestions are. "There has been a wide diversity of suggestions made and I have made a report and have sent the report to President (Stephen) Nadauld and vice president (Robert H.) Smith," Conover said. The administration has read the suggestions and are studying them for feasibility, according to Conover. Conover would like more suggestions to be submitted from all faculty members. "We are going to face hard budget years and it is going to become more important," she told faculty senators. Some of the suggestions were made seriously, some out of anger, and some were creative, Conover said. Faculty suggestions for instructional budget solutions come under four headings. Each heading is sub-divided into different areas. The first category is fund raisingmoney generating. Areas suggested are academic auction, donations to instructional projects, corporate and foundation money, loans and grants. The second category is the budgetprogram cutting. Areas con-. sidered include donating teaching hours; eliminating the Weber State graduation ceremony; eliminating positions in administrative and staff areas, also in (see FACULTY on page 7) t 1 "'"W wpwag'iHW'wwwti "iq v "-wBvm vr1" j 'k . -. . v . 1 f ' , .

Chris Rivera, coordinator for continuing education, is working with the various departments of the college to finalize the schedule. "We will offer some specific and general education requirements in the fall quarter," said Rivera. Then the registered students will be surveyed to determine the majority's preference for future classes. Rivera said the block system for Saturday classes will start about 7:30 a.m. and run until about 3:30 p.m. A student could -take a -three-hour class starting at 7:30 a.m. and finish at 10:30 a.m. According to Rivera, the three-hour block class would be the same as a three-hour class during the week. Randolph Scott, chair of the communication department, said it may not be feasible for the student to sit for three hours in one class then go on to another three-hour class. A break between classes is a suggestion. According to Scott, this would give the students a chance for interaction with the teacher. Dr. Candadai Seshachari, chair of the English department, said Saturday Democratic hopeful attacks Garn's senate record by Rae Dawn Olbert Editor-in-Chief Utah State Senator Terry Williams was on campus yesterday, speaking before a small group of WSC students in the social science building. Williams, who plans to run for a United States Senate seat, said he will make his candidacy official Monday. He will go up against incumbent senator Jake Garn in November. Williams said no one is running against him for the state democratic party's nomination at this time. Williams attacked Garn on his voting record in Congress, saying it was very poor, and the public only hears about Garn in conjunction with the space shuttle program. Williams said Garn "rubberstamps" everything from Washington, and thereby does not represent Utah's best interests. He feels Garn has conflicting interests because chairs the House committee on banking, while simultaneously accepting speaking engagements at several banking functions for which he isreimbursed. :v 71 SiRnyosI photoScott Miller Terry Williams makes a point. "He represents the elite, very rich, and those in the militaryindustrial complex," Williams said. He maintains the only reason Garn is running for reelection is to draw a salary. "He said he wanted to make a lot of money, then go home and retire," Williams said. Williams said the U.S. foreign policy is an extension of our domestic policy and both need to be examined closely. He favors an economic policy which favors American industry. He said we see a problem when countries like South Africa are allowed to dump copper and steel on our market and thereby drive American workers out of a job. He said he would definitely support an embargo, if needed, on steel and possibly on copper. Williams took a negative stand on U.S. aid to Contras. He said in any other context, Washington would call them terrorists, but in this instance have (see WILLIAMS on page 7) courses offered by his department in the fall will be English 100, 101, 102, HU , 232 and HU 250. He said "Based on the continuing education survey, these courses will meet the requirements of the students. After the survey in the fall, we will better know what the students want, lower or upper division classes." Scott said the communication department will will offer introductory courses this fall on Saturday. "I have been talking to Dr. Seshachari to try to coordinate classes with his department, but the final decision will be based on the survey taken by continuing education." Rivera stressed the importance of tailoring the course schedule to fit the needs of the students. "The demand of the students will determine which classes and when. Maybe even going to a Friday eveningSaturday schedule will be the way to go." To better meet the needs of the "weekend college" students, Rivera said, "the adult student services program, implemented this year for the evening students, will be organized for Saturday students as well. These services will be infused into the program to be available on Saturday." Special procedures will become a part of the "weekend college" outline, said Rivera. Even registration will most likely be on a Saturday to accomodate the students. Also, the possibility of on-campus child care for children of Saturday students is being considered. The "weekend college" may be new to WSC, but its concept is not new. Many colleges throughout the U.S. are currently utilizing the weekend for class offerings. Dr. Seshachari said this "pioneering" program is an extension of the college's services and is very much needed in order to meet the needs of higher education in the community.

|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.|
