(AP) A turkey processing company voluntarily recalled some of its fresh turkeys in nine Western states Monday because of a bad odor caused by decay. Norbest Inc., based in Salt Lake City, said it had received reports that some turkeys processed at its Salem, Ore., plant smelled of sulfur or rotten eggs. The turkeys being recalled are from a group of 70,000 sold in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Montana, Utah and Wyoming, company spokesman Mike Korologos said. Frozen turkeys weren't recalled. The only turkeys that need to be returned to where they were bought are those that smell bad. Korologos didn't know how many turkeys are affected, but said that it's probably only a small percentage of the 70,000. The problem was caused by heat, Korologos said. "As near as we can determine, at some point during the distribution, the turkeys were exposed to temperatures above the 30- to 35-degree level," Korologos said. "That accelerated the decaying process, which caused an odor." "It's not a health hazard, it just smells bad," he said. Korologos said the company had received 10 complaints since Nov. 20, but no reports of illness. Turkeys that smell all right should be safe to cook, Korologos said.

Second phase of Allied Health Building gets back on track By JIM SAWDEY Editor in chief of The Signpost After months of delays due to architectural problems, the Allied Health Building, Phase II, has been redesigned and is back on a normal production time line - six to eight months behind schedule. A structural flaw in the original plans for the 18,000 square-foot, $2.3 million building, prompted state officials to send the design back to the drawing boards. Designers have redesigned the building so it will not slide off the hillside during an earthquake, said Robert Folsom, director of campus architecture and engineering services. When the original flaw was discovered, planners said an additional $400,000 would be needed to solve the problem and maintain the original design. The money would be used to build a thicker retaining wall to hold the three-story structure on the hillside, Folsom said. But by taking off the third floor, expanding the other two floors and rearranging the structural design, the architects were able to design a building with the same square-footage as the original for the same cost, he said. The redesign has been approved by Allied Health faculty and the WSU Board of Trustees, he said. The building should be complete in about 25 months, with construction beginning in about seven months. The original schedule called for completion in about 18 months. The two-story structure will be built in the hillside south of the Marriott Allied Health Building, Phase I. The first floor will be occupied by the radiology science department while the second floor will house the dental hygiene department. The Allied Health buildings are designed so that a third building can be constructed between the two. The third building would either be connected to create one large allied health building or it could be built as a free-standing lecture hall. The Allied Health Building, Phase II, is one of two major construction projects planned for the campus next year. Construction on the $1 1 .8 million Student Services Building is scheduled to begin about four months after construction begins on the Allied Health Building. Student Services will be built in the plaza between the Administration and Union Buildings. Annex Building 3 will be demolished before construction begins. Construction should take two years, Folsom said.

News editor of The Signpost A resolution to help students clean up their transcripts, proposed by student senator Mike Wilcox, was voted the top priority bill passed at the Utah Intercollegiate Assembly which met Nov. 20-22 at the Utah State Capitol. The resolution, co-sponsored by Student Body President Shane Stewart, states that when a student retakes a class, the new grade received should be shown on the transcript, and all previous gTades from that class should be removed from the transcript and replaced by RPT (repeat). The bill, with four others, will be written up as a formal proposal and will be presented to the Utah State Board of Regents or the Utah State Legislature for consideration in the next legislative session. Four other bills that received top votes include: a Centennial Bond, a building bond for libraries; transfer of credits, an accreditations guide making it easier to transfer; computer funding for student use; and higher admission standards. Four of the five top UI A offices were filled by Weber State students: Shane Stewart, senate president; Doug Peterson, speaker of the house; Ufo Eric-Atuanya, attorney general; and Tracy Peterson, It. governor. At the UIA, two Weber representatives were elected as officers for the coming year. Stewart will act as governor and Jeff Hatch will be president of the senate. Stewart said his duties include preparing for next year's session and making sure passed resolutions are pushed through. "We thought it went very well because your goals were met. It was educational, functional and fun," Stewart said. UIA, which meets once a year, is a mock legislature with delegates from all nine state colleges and universities including Brigham Young University. All students on campus can be members of the conference. They are selected by the associated student organizations of each institution. Governor Bangerter and the seven gubernatorial candidates were present to answer students questions about higher education.

|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.|
