VOLUME 53, ISSUE 24 (C The k3 Wayne's World Update debated By TYSON HIATT News editor of The Signpost After weeks of clashing and bashing the editorial pages of The Signpost, the reasons for posting Wayne's World Updates and their validity was debated by two WSU students Friday. Steven Petrick-Underwood, former president of the College Democrats,and MikeClark, chairman of the College Republicans, spoke for candidates representing each of their perspective par-'""ties about issues concerning the Senate race between Bennett and Owens. The Wayne's World updates have been distributed by the College Republicans depicting the Republican viewof Congressman L Wayne Owens' political record according to the congressional record. "The title was taken from the movie 'Wayne's World" Clark said. Like any other pieces of political propaganda, Clark said the updates were designed to attract people. "We wanted something that would catch the people's eye," he said. Clark said the updates also were presented to give the College Republicans a presence on campus. "We are a partisan political group and wearediametri-cally opposed to Wayne Owens' candidacy and the things which, in our opinion, he stands for." Petrick-Underwood felt the updates were more a form of mudslinging than they were informative."The mudslinging started by calling us Wayne's World Update," Petrick-Underwood said.

Petrick-Underwood first defended Owens' stand on national defense. He said Owens voted against the C-17 cargo plane because the country has enough cargo airplanes. "Our transport systems are already ahead of any other nation that is going to challenge us now," he said. Another reason Owens voted against the C-17 was because it was $2 billion dollars over its cost, Petrick-Underwood said. "One of the reasons he voted to stop it is because one of the Public college tuition ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON The cost of attending public colleges and universities has increased at a double-digit rate for the secondstraightyear,faraheadofstate and federal financial aid, the College Board reported Tuesday.

Clark agreed that defense spending needs to be cut, but disagrees with the way Owens and the Democra tic Congress has prepared to go about it. Clark said government spending on defense should be cut by about 25 percent over the next 10 years. Speaking for Senatorial candidate, Clark said the U.S. needs to maintain a strong national defense to act as a deterrent to those few countries who still do have weapons."We don't have enemies with nuclear capabilities, but we do University of Vermont, which charges in-state students $10,006 for tuition, housing and a meal plan. Average tuition and fees at four-year public universities and colleges rose 10 percent to $2,315 this fall, the College Board reported. Room and board brings the total to $5,841. At two-year schools, the average increased to $1,292.

If someone has weapons they are going to use them." Clark pointed to the 70s when the democratically controlled Congress cut the defense budget in half after the Vietnam War. He said this action gave the Soviet Union a chance to build arms. The Republican standpoint was cutting defense and redirecting t hei r money to resea rch, CI a rk said.

Clark attacked Owens' abor-tionstance,callingOwensa hypocrite."Wayne has always maintained concurrent with his beliefs in the LDS Church that he is pro-life," Clarksaid. Clarksaid this is not true because Owens qualifies the health of the mother clause with mental, psychological and emotional health. "This means he supports abortion on demand," Clark said.

|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.|
