DeBoer Versus Perea r Dennis DeBoer "The school year 1967-68 is going to be one filled with change," predicts Dennis DeBoer. "The college administration will be faced with new challenges and responsibilites under the various schools established. Mr. DeBoer feels that next year's student leaders will be confronted by the same type of experience in the reorganization of student government."We will be involved in mass confusion because of the construction of new facilities which will mean a shortage of classroom space and will add to our parking troubles," he id. With these new problems and opportunities facingus there will be a greater chance for criticisms and never less need for it. Mr. DeBoer said the kind of government idealized by the United States is the kind which derives its authority from the consent of the governed and is responsible to WEEK All qualifications for candidates can be checked through the dean of men's, vomen's students or registrar's offices in Building One. As with the studentbody elections, poster space will be drawn after the nomination convention. After the candidates have drawn their poster space they should go to the buildings and grounds office in Building One and pay a $5 deposit fee. Officials there, will inform the candidates where the space is. When the drawing is done, the nominees only know what building and what size the space is. Bowman said "We hope to have primary races in all of the available offices. This is an ideal situation, but we realize it is probably a dream.'' the majority representing that authority.

And it's been quite a campaign. Relatively "unknown" Dennis DeBoer has, perhaps, one of the most spirited campaigns - - and one of the toughest. He is opposing Perry Perea, who has held an office at WSC ever BMW Religious Emphasis Week Ends Today With McKay Weber State College's fourth annual "Religious Emphasis Week" will be concluded today at 11 a.m. in the Fine Arts Center Auditorium with an address by Dr. Quinn G. McKay. Dr. McKay, head of the WSC business and economics division, will speak on the subject of business, ethics and religion. Theme for this year's week-long series of lectures is "Does Religion Play a Part in Man's Everyday Life? Monday Rev. Robert M. Phoenix, practicing reverend of the Wyoming State Mental Hospital, began the week with a speech on religion as a determent tp mental illness. "Religion should not be viewed as an added ingredient that makes life more' palatalbe," Rev. Phenis said. "It should be considered as a fundamental part of the human spectrum. "Individuals afflicted with a form of mental illness may be aided by those who practice Christian love and kindness," he said. Religion should provide a healthy means of helping others, Rev. Phenix added, including those who are psychotic, or neurotic, alcoholics or drug addicts. Tuesday Tuesday's speaker was Dr. George R. Hill, dean o f the University of Utah School of Mines. Dr. Hill said, "the scientific method does not verify or deny a supreme being, but most scientists wm recognize that some m Presidential (Finical GSeeiiora of spending much of our money," he said, "in the light of this it becomes important for each of us to become involved." "I want to become involved in student government," Mr. DeBoer said, "and I feel qualified for the position of studentbody president of Weber State College." Perry Perea The office of studenbody president requires a necessary amount of experience as a student leader. The president not only serves over his four vice presidents, but he also serves as the chairman of Executive Council, Coordinating Council and the Union Building Policy Board. Perry Perea has had two years of experience in the Senate serving as chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and chairman of the Student Government Committee. He has served as a class president for two years and was recently selected to Who's Who mow m Voters WSC since he entered college, for stud-entbody president. Perea, 1966 junior class president, received 384 votes in the primary election, compared to De-Boer's total of 201. Other candidates in the primary presidential race were Art Jones, 176 votes, and Clifford Vellinga, 125 votes. Another close race in this year's election is the finance vicepresi- thing in the universe has a great deal of power." He said that one of the major reasons for today's "There is no God" philosophy is that scientists often question whether or not there can be an interaction between an individaul and something that can neither be seen nor felt. "You cannot explain God by pinning a label on Him, Dr. Hill said, "nor can you rely on the credibility of other observers." Some scientists may explain God as a revelation phenomena in which no set of conditions can produce another in His image, Dr. Hill explained. Or, stated in more simple terms, God can be described as a subjective phenomena in which behavior patterns cannot be measured, like the subjective emotions of pain and love," he said. "But, according to the scientific method in which a process of observation external to the individual and a series of experiments can be made," Dr. Hill added, "there is no positive proof or disproof of God." Wednesday The problem of politics, ethics and religion was discussed in depth by Rev. C. Sumpter Logan of the Trinity Presbyterian Church Wednesday."Ethics and faith are often linked together in man," Rev. Logan said, "but the best of ethics and the strongest of faiths may be corrupted by political power." Political morals can be a rough (Continued on Page 7) Among Students in American Colleges and Universities.

Parker, 1966 sophomore class Senator, received 389 votes; Wilson totaled 376. Richard Cass, who was also seeking the office, received 127 votes in the primary balloting. In the senator-at-large race, Kathie Smith was eliminated in the primaries with a total vote of 158. Tom Welch, 557 votes, Judy Wil-lmore, 515 votes, Brent Nilson, 259 votes, and Cheryl Lorenc, 178 votes, will oppose each other for the two offices. Final elections will also be held for the office of executive vice president, legislative vice president and activities vice president. No primaries were held for these offices.

Chase against Dennis Heiner for legislative vice president and Mac Stevenson and Roger Wise competing for activities vice president.

He also hopes to make more people involved in student activities by (1) working through the newly established school Senators, (2) personal contact, and (3) inviting people to participate in activities that will not require more than two weeks of the student's time. "The school can continue to become a respected institution of higher learning under thp skillful guidance of experienced leaders who care about the college," he continued. Perry is very interested in putting the student back into student government and developing an active interest in creating a unified spirit among the students of Weber State College. His campaign slogan is "You and Perry, partners in progress."

|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.|
