Thursday, March 5. 1987 Vol. 47 No. 36 Budget hearings sift though proposals Fee allocations: drawing a money line Kmilie Bean iS'ews Editor Kditor's Note: The figures in this article are based on a fall 1986 enrollment of 11,366, winter 1987 at 10,958, an approximated increase in spring enrollment from the 1986 figure 'of 9,898 to 10,000 and an estimated summer enrollment of 6,000. The student fee allocations committee has heard proposals for over $2 million in student fee requests.Over the past two and one-half weeks, the committee has considered 16 different organizations' requests for student monies. The approximated $2 million total is almost double last year's actual allocation and would, if everything were to be funded, excede $130 per student per quarter. Student fees are supposed to increase in proportion to the tuition increase. This year, because tuition is increasing six percent, student fees will likely increase also. If the full 6 percent is used, it would amount to approximately a $5 increase per student per quarter. This would raise fees to S88 per quarter. The proposals considered range from a quadrupling of the current fee allocation in a few organizations to a Inside Bangerter explains pumping see page 2 mmm mm h How do you control envy? see page 7 Harry Willis rebounds 289 see page 12 mmmmi mm mm m Is graduation worth it? see page 4 decrease in the ASWSC budget of $108. Most areas asked for substantial increases including the athletic department, which needs $3.08 in new monies per student per quarter. According to Jonathan Wright, ASWSC presi dent, "there is much mor being requested than we have the ability to fund." Wright added, "Their those asking for moneyl requests aren't wish lists. They're talking about balancing their budgets."

This request for fees is grouped with several other proposals submitted by the department in order to balance the budget.

R and Q. Courses 'flex' with schedules Karen J. Leonardi Staff Reporter Do you need another class but can't fit it into your schedule? Often students are faced with classes they need being offered simultaneously or when they need to be at work. In an effort to combat these problems, the Oivi sion of Continuing Education has a few options to consider. Students can enroll in correspondence courses and flex-study courses this comming quarter. Telecourses are also offered at various times at the college. Students interested in these types of classes will find a variety of course offerings ranging from general education to upper division courses. "Over 1000 students are currently enrolled in courses offered through continuing education," said Dr. Dennis DeFraine, program administrator for distance and learning at continuing education. Correspondence courses are independant study, while the new Hex-study program offers the added structure of special sessions with the intructor. Students meet with the instructor for two hours per credit taken. Telecourses are offered on KUED, Channel 7. "If you're motivated, it's almost preferrable to take a correspondence course," said Anne Shallcross, student aide for DeFraine. "We have good professors who are willing to work with students in any way they can," she said. To register for any of the three types of courses, students must pay $35 per credit hour tuition plus books. Registration for these courses is in Promontory Tower, room 406.

Gary Crompton, director of athletics, said the move would allow for students to be more involved in the games because they would be closer to the action. Also, it would give the students the same number of padded seats but more plastic seats. However, there was a premature leak to the Ogden Standard Examiner in the sports section of a Sunday paper. When Crompton made his proposal before the student fee allocations committee he said he had, "withdrawn the request for students to move their seats." Also included in Crompton 's proposal was a cut by the athletic department that would remove women's golf entirely and will make budget revisions in men's golf, wrestling, cheerleaders and Chan-tonelles.Also, Crompton is planning to make office changes and hopes to attract more donations with a revised Wildcat Club. The new Wildcat Athletic Association would be administrated with a little variation from the old Wildcat Club. Gary Evans, Wildcat Club director, will be moved as the new director of promotions and marketing to the athletic department. In addition, Crompton hopes to be able to work out a concessions arrangement wherein the athletic department will get 30 percent of concession money collected currently by Dining Services. Crompton claims that concessions are 20 percent cost, 50 percent profit for Dining Services and another 30 percent for athletics. Additionally, he is asking for a $3.08 student fee increase, from $14.92 to $18, per person per quarter. This would increase fees from $44.76 for fall, winter and spring to $54. Crompton explained that students get $160 in ticket value foi the $46. 9S they pay yearly. This year that amount would increase to $54.

|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.|
