VOLUME 51. ISSUE 69 WEDNESDAY. APRIL 3. 1991 IGNPOST L H Weber State University Ogden, Utah New parking lots may be here by fall quarter By Lorin J. May News editor of 7he Signpost Two new parking lots may be in place by fall quarter, awaiting approval by the WSU President's Council. Approval for the construction of a proposed parking lot west of the Administration Building has been delayed by the council until the administration can hear public concerns. The decision to build another parking lot near the gymnasium will be delayed until the university can receive input from nearby residents. No date has yet been set for a public hearing. "We felt there wasn't a big rush," said WSU President Paul Thompson. "I don't know what the objections are, but my feeling is that any time we make major changes we would like the input of the uni- " We're trying to park a thousand cars each month in six stalls in front of the Administration Building' Lee Cassity, WSU Police Chief versity community." Both lots, which have received unanimous approval from the WSU Parking Committee, would be constructed over the summer. A 50-stall extension of the lot west of the Social Science and Administration Buildings was considered by Thompson and other (See PARKING page 2) April Fool's: Moench University of Technology not to be Just in case there's anyone on campus who hasn't caught on to our little prank in the lead story of the Monday, April 1 issue, we humbly ask that you review the original article very carefully in search of a few clues. For example, if you were to take the first letter which, incidentally was in bold type of each of the first 10 paragraphs and put them together, you'd have "APRIL FOOLS." Yes, the gullible among you can be reassured that good ol' Weber State will remain Weber State, and Moench University of Technology, whether it's easier to pronounce or not, was nothing but a figment of our combined imaginations. Put away your hopes for MUT sweatshirts and various paraphernalia, it was all a joke. For the curious, the remaining clues were: O) The reporter's name, Sue Doenym, which if you were to say aloud would hopefully resemble "pseudonym," or "false name." (See CLUES page 3) A.

Hansen left WSU Dec. 6 and the United States Dec. 18 for duty at the U.S. Army hospital in Heidelberg, Germany. "The German media would only show the anti-war protestors, but we received so many letters from the German people about their support for our efforts in the Middle East," Hansen said. "Even with all of the extra security, people managed to bring us delicious food and beverages while on duty to let us know they were proud of us." Hansen said all military hospitals throughout Europe expanded their personnel to accommodate the high number of anticipated wounded. But because of the short duration of the war there was no need for the stand-by plan. Baughman, tanned from her stay in the 500-bed field hospital in Saudi Arabia, said her hospital had treated about 200 allied wounded during her stay. Iraqi prisoners of war were treated by coalition medical personnel.Stationed about 75 miles from the front and staffed with 950 people, the field hospitals brought much-needed technology to treat wounded military personnel quickly and efficiently. Baughman said she left Saudi Arabia just as the humidity was starting to increase. Tm glad we left when we did," she said. Baughman admitted she is enjoying the luxury of frequent bathing. "We were forbidden to bring home souvenir sand. However, when I got home and emptied my sea bag, I had all of the sand I wanted," she said. Faculty member Hackman was to be stationed stateside, but the war ended and she was sent home. Harrison was stationed at Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Va.

|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.|
