nn 71 lie cCD 1 1 Monday, October 25, 1993 Volume 56 Number 19 Quick Takes 1-5 Mormon letters featured By Linda Larsen Signpost staff writer The 10th anniversary edition of Weber Studies will have as its theme, "Tradition and the Individual Talent in Contemporary Mormon Letters." "We wanted to show the literature that comes from the soil, to show the Mormon experience, but judged in a literary sense, outside the area," said English professor Neila Seshachari, editor of Weber Studies. The issue features diverse talents of writers like Neal Chandler, Susan Elizabeth Howe, Judith Freeman and Robert Mikkelson. Weber Studies has grown in its 10 years at WSU from an annual publication with two editors and nine contributors to a tri-quarterly, nationally known literary publication with subscribers around the world. It was conceived as a campus publication, encouraging a broad exchange of work and offering the opportunity for experience in publication and design to the faculty and students, Seshachari said. When Seshachari took the reins as editor, the journal changed it's focus and added the subtitle "an Interdisciplinary Journal in the Humanities" "We are particularly nurturing of Weber State University faculty," Seshachari said.

ERIC JOHNSENrHE SIGNPOST Visitors to Weber State University's Browning Performing Arts Center are forced to walk around mud and dirt where there used to be lawn. Vehicles driving on the sidewalks have damaged many of the university's grassy areas. Five-year plan underway By Dawn Webber Signpost staff writer The mucky swamp that was this year's Homecoming mud volleyball field will become a grassy commons area with a $6,500 price tag. The new grassy field will replace the former commons area that now sits crunched beneath construction for the new student services building. Joly Walker, director of student life and project maintenance, will oversee installation of new turf in the area on the south side of the bell tower that used to have a checkerboard of cement squares. Money for the project comes from the capital repair and replacement fund.

The CRR fund is responsible for all the renovations and upkeep, including refinishing a ballroom floor of the Shepherd Union Building, the Dee Events Center and all four dorms. Over five years, CRR funds of more than $2 million will be budgeted for such projects as upgrad ing all bathrooms in Promontory Tower to meet American Disabilities Act standards. That project will cost about $231,000. The money will also provide a new scoreboard for the Dee Events Center, a new satellite dish for wire service at the Signpost and KWCR and new furnishings for Promontory Tower and LaSal dormitories. Prevention stressed by new doctor By Christina Quinley Signpost staff writer Shawn McQuilkin, the new Weber State University student health center doctor, said he wants to stress preventative health care rather than just treating sore throats and colds. "We're more involved in health education by going to the students and talking to them about various issues that relate to them and their health, with more of an emphasis on prevention," said McQuilkin, who started at the WSU health center fall quarter. He said he wants to inform students how their See Doctor page 3 M i i 1 -7 i News Volunteers help rebuild, clean-up and beautify problem areas in Ogden.

|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.|
