Fielding editor in chief-TTie Signpost The world of professional wrestling has changed significantly since the days of Gorgeous George and Killer Kowalski. And wrestling on television is not all it is cracked up to be, either. "Back then we had wooden ships and iron men," said King Kong Bundy. '"Now, we have iron ships and wooden men." Bundy said the business of wrestling changed more from the 1970s to the 1980s than from the 1980s to the 1990s. "Wrestling stated in the late '80s with WrestleMania, that was the rock and wrestling thing. Now wrestling, I don't know if it's rock or what," Bundy said. Nikolai Volkoff, whose real name is Josip Peruzovic, agrees that wrestling has changed, he likened it to "cartoons and comedy." "They still call it wrestling," he said.

Fielding editor in chief-The Signpost March 10 is quickly approaching, and it may be the last night for the "Polish Nightmare." Between Bundy and the ring post that's where Joe Pawloski might find himself. The match was made when Pawloski made a remark about wrestlers. "He made a remark about wrestlers being great sports entertainers with kind of an emphasis on the 'entertainers' part," said King Kong Bundy in a telephone interview. "And just the tone of his voice just kind of pissed me off." Bundy challenged Pawloski to the match to show him what wrestling was really like from inside the ring. ' . "The idea of some college puke talking that way about my profession," Bundy said. "So I said, 'Listen punk, why don't ou get in the ring with, me? I'll give you live grand, 10 grand, 20 a" !

Senate seat on By Leo Dirr campus affairs editor-77ie Signpost A bill giving the AsianPacific Islander constituency a student senate seat, voted down by senators at the conclusion of last semester, passed unopposed with one abstention Monday. "I think that now we're talking a little bit about diversity and now we're understanding student needs," said the bill's sponsor, Fabian Ama-rillo, LatinoChicanoHispanic student senator. Last semester senators debated the bill and a few were concerned with adding another senator. Five senators were indecisive and abstained from the vole. The bill failed. Amy Gustaveson, HonorsIntegrated senator, was among those who voted against the bill the first time Amarillo submitted it. When Amarillo resubmitted the legislation last week. Gustaveson told the senate her area council opposed the bill. Council members fell a conflict may arise between the two cultures being represented, she said. Gust a eson told the bills sponsors they could talk with her area council about he bill if they w anted to. Margaret Pilcher. one of the bill's Jimmy "Superfly Snuka, the first man See Odds page 3 tQ djve off the fop o Q stee CQge passes diversity second round eight co-sponsors, met with the HonorsIntegrated area council and persuaded them to vote yes. So, Gustaveson changed her vote. During discussion of the bill, Jaimi Day, education senator, said, "In my better judgment I am voting for this bill against my area council."Day, who abstained last time, voted for the bill because she fell the constituency deserved to be represented and couldn't agree with her area council's reasoning, she said. One council member persuaded the other two present to vole no by saying members of the two cultures are loo passive to get involved in student government, Day said. With the AsianPacific Islander seat, 18 senators constitute a complete senate. The new seat is open to all students who are of AsianPacific Islander ethnicity and arc citizens or permanent residents of the United Stales. Students who would like to represent the constituency next year may obtain candidate packets from the Student Activities office in the Shepherd Union building. The senate also passed Sally Farrar's resolution recommending the administration increaseon-cam-pus cliildcare. The nontradiiional students' senator changed the language of the resolution before senate passed it with a consensus vole. Farrar's writer's amendment substituted "as the need arises" for the 150 slots her resolution originally called for. She also added "and not to affect the existence of the Melba Lchner center." Farrar said she wanted people to remain flexible as they worked together to expand cliildcare. "People gel stuck on numbers," she said. She said she felt the oilier change would gain the support of Carole llaun, director of the children's school. In her adviser's comments, Felicia Ganlher said a constitutional convention will be held next week to piopose necessary changes to the Associated Students of Weber State University Constitution. Changes are needed because of the restructuring of Student Affairs by Anand Dyal-Chund, vice president of student affairs. Gaudier said. The constitutional convention is open to the public and students are allowed to speak at the meeting. The convention is in Room 347 of the Shepherd Union building Monday at 1 :30 p.m.

|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.|
