Meets Selection of incoming editors, financial renumeration of staff members and a proposed Publications bill were discussed Wednesday by the newly-reorganized Weber State College Publications Council. The Council, headed by Gerald Grove, a WSC English instructor, held the meeting after nearly a year of inactivity.

Also attending the meeting were: Curtis Smout, WSC student government coordinator; Perry Perea, ASWSC executive president; Brent Wilson, ASWSC financial vice-president and Eddie Allen, junior class president. Allen , who is also chairman of the policy committee of the student Senate, presented a proposed Publications bill to the Council for approval. The bill, if ratified by the Senate, would specify membership and responsibilities of the council and procedures for selecting publication editors-in-chief. Qualifications for editors of the Signpost, Acorn and Kalidescope publications are also included In the bill. "This bill is Important and should be written correctly," said Allen. He added, "it is particularly important as the Council is not an administrative standing committee, but Is under the direction of the Senate." The bill was approved unanimously by the Council and is scheduled to be presented to the Senate during the next few weeks. Selection of incoming 1968 editors and renumeration of publications' staffs was also discussed by Council members. Miss Deegan, '67 Signpost editor, said she would leave the publication at the end of Winter quarter but would be available to act "as advisor" to a new editor. "I began as 'official' Signpost editor last spring quarter and unlike the other two editors, who did not take over their duties until September, my commitments to the paper will be ended March 22," she said. Miss Forsgren, who has served on the Acorn staff for the past two years, said the yearbook may have a "problem" In selecting a 1968 editor. "We just don't have any prospective applicants at this point," she told Council members. Gladwell read a letter from Utah State University's publications department listing the salaries paid monthly to USU newspaper and advertising staff members. Salaries at Utah State ranged from $70 to $10, as compared to current WSC salary rates of $60 to $18 each month. Miss Lorenc said salaries should be heavily considered on WSC publications are expected to do a "professional job." "We have so many responsibilities that I think the Council should be aware of just how much goes Into each publication," she said.

|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.|
