MBEH-GOaZAGA SSOWOW SATURDAY Volume 25, No. 20 WEBER STATE COLLEGE, OGDEN, UTAH February 18, 1966 VVSC Presented $5,000 Equipment Weber State has been given scientific equipment valued at more than $5,000 for use in the chemical laboratory by the American Oil Co. refinery in Salt Lake C ity. The apparatus is a surplus Pod-bielniak Hyd-Robot distilling column. WSC can use it in research and for instruction in the theory and practice of separation of gaseous and liquid mixtures by fractional distillation. Dr. Alva J. Johanson, chemistry department chairman of Weber State, said the equipment will be placed in the instrumentation and physical chemistry laboratory. It was given to the college on behalf of American Oil by R.G. Anderson plant manager, and Royal Mursener, superintendent of technical services in Salt Lake City. Dr. William P. Miller, college president, expressed nis appreciation to the company for the gift. "This kind of support from private industry enables Weber's instructional program to benefit greatly because budget limitations make it impossible for the institution to obtain all of the things we woul like to have," he said. Governor Studies Tuition Increase Increased tuitions, especially for out-of-state students, remains the "most reasonable" means of meeting increasing needs of higher education in Utah, Governor Calvin Rampton said last Monday. Conferring in his Capitol Office with the Dixie College Advisory Council, Governor Rampton said he is opposed to raising local taxes for financing education at the -state's higher education institutions.He explained later Monday that he has asked for the State Coordinating Council of Higher Education to study feasibility of raising college and university tuitions for nonresidents. "Until lam informed differently, I see this as the way to meet the increasing financial demands," the governor said. He added that he expected resident tuition to be "raised in some degree" in the near future for the same reason. WSC's tuition may be raised to $85 next quarter for funds to purchase books for the library. WSC Takes Part In Poverty Program A federal grant of $96,250 to finance a work-study program has been approved for Weber State College. The funds will be used to pay 175 students for work performed at Weber State. It is part of the so-called "War on Poverty" and is designed to help students from economically handicapped families to attend college. The WSC grant is part of the $250,000 that has been allocated to six Utah institutions of higher education. r ' "' 1 .

Birchers Subject of Forum The John Birch Society is probably one of the most controversial right wing organizations existent within the United States. Certainly there have been many persons who have condemned it and many who have praised it. The majority of persons, however, seem to have formed a conclusion about the John Birch Society, whether good or bad, but seem unable to logically justify that conclusion. What are the goals of the Society? Are its methods in keeping with American principles? What are the alternatives to the John Birch Society? How did it begin? These questions and many more will be answered on Tuesday, February 22, in Room 106-108 when STATE YOUR STAND will present the question: "The John Birch Society: Is it one of America's strengths or weaknesses?" Mr. Joseph Stumph, founder and section leader of the BrighamCity chapter of the Society, will present some of the basic views and principles of the society. It is hoped that those who attend STATE YOUR STAND on this day, after hearing both sides of the issue, will form a conclusion which can be intelligently justified, whether that conclusion be Trustees Discuss Accrediting, Non-Utah Faculty by Carol Deegan Faculty, curriculum, and accrediting reports dominated the discussion at Weber State's Board of Trustees meeting held last Wednesday morning. A new trustee was introduced to the members and the President's Report dealt mainly with the various student extra-curricular activities. The meeting opened with the Building and Grounds committee report. Due to pressing business in Salt Lake City, Trustee William Fowler rushed through this report, commenting that the progress on the science building was "coming along well". The faculty and curriculum report, presented by Trustee Peterson, asked that nine retired faculty members of WSC be awarded meritus status. Among those approved for recognition by the Board are E.R. Browning, M.L. Stephensen, N. Thatcher Allred, and Rowland C. Perry. Trustee Peterson also reviewed one aspect of the accrediting report issued by the Northwest Accrediting Association last January. Item I on page three brought put the fact that most of Weber's faculty has received degrees from Utah institutions. Trustee Peterson therefore made the motion that Weber "strive to appoint new faculty members from other areas as qualified professors and associate professors." The motion was approved. Chairman of the Board Huggins commented on this motion, noting, that the college "must face facts; objectively". The money we have to employ is a problem and it seems that those educated in Utah are the most willing to accept this problem. Board members observed one-half minute of silence as a "standing vote of confidence and respect" for the deceased Robert Hemingway, who served Weber for many years as a trustee. Frank Francis Jr. was then introduced to the members as WSC's new trustee. "I feel this is indeed a great honor," said Mr. Francis. "Trustee Hemingway was a fine, outstanding citizen and he dedicated much time and affirmative or negative, and will become better informed about this organization which has risen to national importance in the past six years.

I hope I can add some measure to this board so that Weber will be the finest institution in the state." President Miller's report covered six major issues, including the production of the Sound of Music, thestudent-sponsored Religious Emphasis Week, and future accrediting reports. "Our Sound of Music production is most popular. We have an excellent cast and well-qualified people directing. We've had a very successful advanced ticket sale." He encouraged all board members to attend opening night performance. Commenting on Religious Emphasis Week, President Miller noted that it was a "very interesting and effective series of lectures."He also brought out the future visits of three accrediting associations to our campus. The NCATE committee will be in Ogden on February 28 for a three-day tour of the campus. Two more accrediting associations will visit WSC this year to review our technical and nursing programs. "We don't have to have them," said President Miller, "but we would like profession recognition. Many out-of-state professors would not affiliate with us if NCATE didn't recognize us. TheNorth-west Accrediting Association accredited the school as a whole; that it's a good school for students to attend." V Trustee Myers noted that the i-.accrediting report was "certainly Very impressive." A motion was made to commend the president, faculty and students for a favorable report. Trustee Myers also noted that after the last meeting of the Board of Trustees, he had been detained long enough to hear student comments during Soundoff. "They didn't know about us," he said, "perhaps we should do something to help establish our identities." Trustee Breeze, however, 'assured the members that the students were literate enough to be aware of the Board of Trustees. "Perhaps we should declare a Board of Trustees Day," he joked. President Miller closed the meeting, assuring members that it would be "a wonderful thing to be acquainted with the key people on campus. I've long felt that we should have a close liason with the students, faculty, and public." Inside?

|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.|
