He said the registration is mainly for freshmen with less than 44 credit hours and those students who are entering Weber State for the first time. Students who are re-enteringthe college after one quarter or more absence may also register during these dates, Mecham said. "' Registration for all students, except freshmen, will be held Mar. 21. Registration will be held in alphabetical order according to last names: 8 a.m. - L-Q 8:30 a.m. R - S Coordinating Council Tuition Fee Increase, Dr. Merle E. Allen, director of the Coordinating Council of Higher Education said Wednesday that increased resident and nonresident tuition at universities and colleges was not initiated by the Legislature. ''The changes were recommended by the Council," he said, "becaude the members feel that the increased fees are essential if the institutions of higher learning get the income upon which the budget recommendations to the Legislature were based." He said the feeling among students that the fee increase proposals were generated in the Legislature "are founded upon misunderstanding."He said the increases still would not produce the anticipated revenue contained in the Council estimates of dedicated credits which were a part of the higher education budget. y Senate President Haven J. Barlow, R-Layton, had issued a statement to the press earlier in the week that "even if we did not pass any legislation, fees would have been increased by the schools as recommended by the Coordinating Council. "The only reason the Legislature figures in this matter at all is to thing of the past since the school administration adopted' the pre-registration ready have their class cards and only have to pay their fees. 9 a.m. T-Z 9:30 a.m. A-B 10:00 a.m. C - F-10:30 a.m. G-K Freshmen will register Mar. 21-22 in alphabetical order according to their last names: 1:30 p.m. J-L 2:00 p.m. M-N 2:30 p.m. O-Q Wednesday, March 22: 8:00 a.m. R 8:30 a.m. S 9:00 a.m. T-V 9:30 a.m. W-Z 10:00 a.m. A-B 10:30 C 1:30 p.m. D-E 2:00 p.m. F-G 2:30 p.m. H-I Late registration will begin Mar.

Barlow's comments and other aspects of the proposed tuition hike at a Weber State College faculty meeting. Scribulus Abolished by Senate Committee New Magazine Format Outline Scribulus, the campus literary magazine, has been abolished by the Senate and a new type of publication has been established in its place. A Senate bill introduced by Cheryl Lorenc and Bob Hunter was adopted on recommendation of Ralph Klomp, chairman of a special committee appointed by Speaker Jerry Nebeker to study the proposed change in publications. Klomp said an appropriation of $550 would be needed to accomodate a spring quarter issue of the new magazine. Nebeker sent the appropriation request to the Ways and Means Mar. 21, 22 23. A late registration fee of $5.00 is assessed beginning Mar. 23 with an additional $1.00 a day assessed for each additional day up to a maximum of $10.00. An early pre-registration for sophomore, junior, senior and graduate students was held late in Feb., a system first used during winter quarter registration. Mecham said this early sign-up enables students more time to make class selections and reduces the number of students who go through the centers during the regular registration period. Evening school registration has also been changed for spring quarter, with students for the first time in several years not required to obtain an appointment to register. All evening school students will go through the lines whenever they arrive between 5 and 8 p.m. Mar. 20. Reason for the change in procedure, Mecham said, is because the college now has ample room, staff and the added assistance of electronics computers to handle the registration crowds. Normally, spring quarter enrollment is the lowest of the year. Fall quarter registration totaled 8,220, highest on record, includ- ing 6,223 day students. Committee for study and final recommendation.The new publication, which has no name, will be titled through a contest, according to Miss Lorenc, Scribulus editor. She said the magazine's purpose will be to fill the gap between the Signpost and Acorn (yearbook). "It will include in-depth news articles, fiction, poetry, and other literary efforts with broader ap-leal than the present magazine," she said, "And its name must be changed to give it a new face." "People naturally attach mer-tain ideas to the present Scrib A special election on five proposed amendments has been called by Associated Students President Jack Suttlemyre. Students may vote today in the Union Building main foyer after showing their identification cards from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The election follows passage of the amendments by the entire Senate membership and a student-faculty amendment study committee appointed by President Miller and Suttlemyre. The five additions were proposed Clark Walker Replaces Sophomore Prexy Clark Walker, president of the Weber State College Young Democrats, has been named by the Senate to replace Mike Lowe as Sophomore class president. The action was taken after Lowe announced he would not return to school spring quarter. The former AMS vice president and member of Excelsior Fraternity said he would-attend the army officer candidate school. Walker was one of three candi-cates nominated by Lowe. Two other names presented to the senate were Paul Skeen and Dick Bowman. In addition to his duties as young democrats president, Walker is a member of the elections committee and Phoenix Fraternity. He is a 1965 graduate of Bea Lomond High School and is majoring in history at Weber State. He is an honor student. The 19 year old native Ogden resident hopes to become a foreign service officer for the government. r a Clark Walker ulus, and the new magazine definitely will not -be the same type of publication," she added. Nebeker suggested the magazine be expanded to include photography, art, and articles on music, drama, and other areas of the fine arts. Senators unanimously approved adoption of the bill, but some expressed doubts concerning availability of funds to publish the magazine.Student leaders recently appropriated $2,000 from the nearly depleted reserve fund for a Weber State Band trip to Las Vegas. In approving the band's trip to appear at the National Music Ed by Senators Perry Perea and Tom Welch, who agreed, "The move was necessary in the event the constitutional convention does not complete its work before election time." Two of the student officers --Suttlemyre and First Vice President Jerry Nebeker - - said the amendments are necessary to align student government with the administrative changes which will go into effect next fall. The college board of trustees has established four schools --Technology and Applied Science; Arts, Letters, and Sciences; Business, and Education. They will replace the present eight divisions on campus. The Senate has unanimously backed the proposals. Convention Chairman Peggy Hef-fernan and 11 other members of the delegation have announced their support of the amendments and have urged students to vote for them. Three convention members Curtis Smout, Clifford and Clarence Vellinga - - have said they are against the proposed amendments because they feel it is the convention's job to rewrite the ' constitution. "We are putting the cart before the horse," said Clifford Vellinga. Another student leader --Signpost Editor Ryan Rees - - said he would vote against the amendments, not only because of improper procedure, but because of the "unncecessary changes" which would be made if the proposals were adopted. "I am against certain contents of the amendments," he said. He noted he saw no reason for a fourth vice president. To become effective, the amendments must be passed by a majority of students voting in the special election. The first amendment would establish an executive council consisting of the president, executive vice president, legislative vice president, activities vice president, financial vice president, dean of students, faculty advisor, and legal advisor (non-voting). The second proposal calls for a change in hour requirements for student officer candidates. (Continued on Page 2) Approved ucators Convention, Business and Fiance Vice President Clarence Vellinga recommended that all other student supported budgets be frozen. This meant no additional funds should be alloted to any organization and that all student groups be required to stay within their present budgets. Nebeker said he was hopeful the Ways and Means Committee could find some resource to finance the first issue of the new publication. Chairman of the committee, Ron Parker, said the magazine finances would be discussed at a meeting to be held during quarter recess.

|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.|
