TIM-iUT Art Human Nature Lends Excess Power Lee Thursday, April 30, brought Salt Lake City's Mayor J. Bracken Lee to Weber State College as result of an invitation from the WSC Films and Lectures Committee. Mayor Lee, formerly governor of Utah from 1948 to 1956 is now seeking the Republican nomination for governor. Lee's speech centered around human nature and its never changing way. He pointed out that the government of any people anywhere is a philosophy dealing with human nature. Lee went on to say that the government had complicated many things in human nature by gaining more power through saying that it would do more for the people. He also stated that the United States Constitution is the most modern and progressive in the world. The reason for this is our government limits each individual to his own rights, which Lee feels is needed. He claimed such a government is needed because the human nature of man gives him too much power. When asked what he would do for WSC if elected governor, Lee said he would give Weber State its share of the money, as human nature goes. LESS THAN 10 PER CENT VOTE In the student officer elections held April 30 the officers who will preside over the Sophomore, Junior and Senior classes and the AWS and AMS were elected.

At this conference 180 studentbody officers from most of the western states' schools d i s-cussed the reponsibilities and leadership qualities of studentbody officers.Because of the theme of the agenda was "So I've Won . . . Now What", special classes were conducted to acquaint the officers with the necessary qualities of studentbody leadership. In other classes the fundamentals of group dynamics were demonstrated. To introduce the studentbody officers to school government, theory sessions on the philosophy of student government were held. Asked what the purpose of the PSPA was, Mike Phillips referred to the Constitution: "The purpose of the PSPA and its activities is to prepare and invigorate the participating members by means of increasing their knowledge of all aspects of leadership and encouraging interchange of ideas in order that they may more effectively carry out their responsibilities and better serve the best interests of the students of their college or university." The sunny 80 degree weather, which our officers enjoyed in Phoenix, contrasts with our record low temperatures and ankle high snow.

|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.|
