Friday, March 8, 1985 Weber State College 7TT y V y or . f a i Signpost photoJeff Bybee Students in Dave Cox's art class find there's more than one way to scramble an egg. Their project was to design a contraption that would pro tect an egg from breaking when dropped off the top of the stadium (above). The design had to be aesthetically pleasing as well as practical. After the 'drop' was made, students examined their designs (left). Some worked, some didn't. "Thanks Herman," said one student as she examined her all-in-one-piece egg. New Signpost Editor-in-Chief Appointed Rae Dawn Olbert has been appointededitor-in-chief of the Signpost. Dr. Harold Y. Hunker, chair of the Communications Department, made the appointment yesterday. Olbert has been a member of the Signpost for the past two years, getting her start as a news reporter. She has also held the position of news editor and most recently has been the managing editor. She is a junior majoring in journalism, and plans to minor in Corrections and Law Enforcement. After graduating from WSC, she plans to pursue her career in journalism. "My experience at the Signpost has taught me the finer points of becoming a writer. The hands-on experience is better than you could get in any classroom. I look forward to continuing the paper's role of serving the Weber State populace," said Rae Dawn. Colleen Mewing, editor-in-chief emeritus, will graduate spring quarter with her degree in journalism. "I know that Rae Dawn will do a fine job as editor of the paper. She has a keen sense of knowing what 'news' is and will be fair in covering campus events," she said. v - x ;.' . ..... .t j f. j. , Rae Dawn Olbert Debate Requests $11,974 More by Betty Edmondson Staff Reporter If the WSC debate team can attend seven more tournaments this year, they have a good chance of beating top-ranked UCLA, according to Coach Dave Berube. The debate team, ranked second in the nation, has run out of funds and needs to raise $11,974 to complete the year's schedule. Berube has promises of $3,500 from Dr. Sherwin Howard, dean of the School of Arts and Humanities, and Toni Weight, acting dean of student affairs. The money would come from unexpended funds in their budgets. Berube's request for $2,440 from ASWSC was debated at Monday's senate meeting. Some senators favored helping the debaters, others questioned whether ASWSC funds should be diverted to the debate team from other needy programs. Berube is hoping the administration will kick in the remaining $6,034. Howard spoke to the student senate Monday and urged the senators to act favorably on the request. "The debate team is so tantalizingly close to the championship," he said, "if you turn down their request, I'll be out on the street with a tin cup." Berube said the team's total budget for the year was $31,300, pared down from the original request of $42,000. He said he knew at Christmas the money wasn't going to cover the year's expenses. According to Berube, a typical tournament, such as the one this week at the University of Illinois, costs a total of $2,367.50. This includes registration fees, housing, meals, insurance and airfare. Berube feels the debate team serves an important public relations function for the college. "There is an enormous number of high school debaters in Utah," he said, "and WSC's success will carry weight with these potential students at recruitment time." The student senate will vote on the debate team's request for funds at their next meeting on Monday, March 11. 23 Applicants For Student Services VP The search for a vice president for student services is coming along well, according to Stan Greenhalgh, chair of the screening committee. Greenhalgh said the committee is solely an advisory committee and will not make recommendations as to who should be selected. He said President Brady has been in constant contact with the committee and will meet with each committee member for feedback on the candidates before making his selection.The screening committee consists of students, faculty and alumni, said Greenhalgh. 'There is a heavy representation of students" on the committee, he said. Greenhalgh said the committee has been busy reviewing the 23 candidates' resumes, and plans to meet with the them on an individual basis the latter part of April. "We have some very good candidates. We are very pleased with the selection," said Greenhalgh. He said the candidates represent a good cross-section of the campus; student services, executive and professional ranks and others.

|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.|
