The Wildcats extended their winning game faces prior to Saturday's game against Northern streak by toppling the Lumberjacks 67-28. Diversity center to promote global community By Christina Quinley Signpost staff writer Ethnic diversity should be brought into a global community rather than into polarized groups, said Sophia Garcia, coordinator of the new diversity center which will be established in the student services building upon completion.Garcia's position as coordinator is new and the center is being created to celebrate Weber State University's ethnic students and promote WSU as a global community, she said. One of the center's objectives is to affirm the culture and heritage of traditionally under-represented students as well as international students and traditional majority students. Garcia said the center will promote the co-curricular development of students of color and expose majority students to diverse cultures, ideas and people. The diversity center will take the place of the multicultural center when it moves into the student services building. "We will be located right next to the student activities center when the building is completed," Garcia said. "It will provide space and resources for WSU's ethnic students, student organizations and programming for the WSU community overall." The center's first program is a teleconference titled "We can get along: A blueprint for campus unity," Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Shepherd Union Building, ballroom C. "The teleconference will enable students to examine unity and diversity at WSU, and what is needed to create a global learning environment," Garcia said. The teleconference will include campus leaders from across the country as well as experts Jacqueline Fleming, professor of psychology at Barnard College; Paul Shang, director of Help for Education and Life Planning Success Center at Colorado State University; Curtis Polk, race relations counselor at University of Texas-Austin; Gloria" Romero, visiting professor of Chicano Studies, Loyola Marymount, University California; the Rev. Leo J. O'Donovan, S.J. president, Georgetown University and Julian Bond who will moderate. The panel will present proven success models that show how to build a solid foundation of campus unity. The conference is important for students serious about building trust and mutual support among students, faculty and administrators, Garcia said. "Some of the topics we will cover are racial congregation and campus segregation, student government, campus newspapers, fraternities and sororities, ethnic student organizations and how to get larger numbers of white and non-white students," Garcia said. The teleconference will be linked with students, faculty and administrators from the University of North Carolina, live via satellite. Weber State debate team still a power Bryan Stephens Signpost staff writer Although this year's debate team is younger and less experienced, Coach Mike "Bear" Bryant said team members are working hard and "kickin' butt." Bryant said even though he lost many of last year's members, he is very pleased with the way the team has performed. "It's a really young squad we have this year. We're kind of excited at how well they've done," he said. "Our policy debate team," Bryant said, "is one of the strongest teams in the country." Over the last five years, the team has dominated the Western United States by taking first place in the Rocky Mountain area. Last year the Weber State University debate teams were the first teams in debate history to take first place in both policy and value debate, he said. Although Bryant is unsure of how the team will do this year, he said he is encouraged by the way the team has done this early in the season. He said WSU has one of the strongest junior teams in the country right now. The team recently returned from the University of Kansas where it participated in the "kidney" tournament. WSU junior team members Suzanne Cook and Dawn Daley bent out teams from Sec Debate page 2 Three debaters take top slots In a recent debate tournament in Lawrence, Kan., the Weber State University team had three debaters place in top positions. In the varsity championship division, WSU debater Nick Coburn-Palo established himself as one of the best debaters in the nation this season. First-year "phenoms" Dawn Daley and Suzanne Cook continued their streak of wins by clearing top-seeded after the eight preliminary rounds. Cook and Daley were also awarded for being 4th and 3rd best individual speakers, respectively, in their division of debate. Coburn-Palo earned enough judge-awarded points to receive an award for third best individual speaker in a field of nearly 100 of the top varsity debaters at the Kansans tournament. After posting elimination round victories over North Texas and Southeast Oklahoma State, Daley and Cook lost their final round to a team from Concordia College. Overall, the duo have won 27 of their 29 debates this season. Quick Takes A&E New park in downtown SLC provides citygoers with a place to rest and relax.

|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.|
