New studentbody officers elected last Friday are: Roger Wise, activities; Bob Hunter, executive; Perry Perea, president; Brent Wilson, finance and Dennis Heiner, legislative. Perea, Hunter, Heiner, Wilson, Wise, Elected in Record Vote The suffocating snake of apathy that so commonly chokes Weber State College had little chance to rear it head last week as a record number of students went to the polls to vote for 1967 studentbody officers.Perry Perea, a pre-medical student, was elected studentbody president with a total of 902 votes. His opponent, Dennis DeBoer, received 558 votes in the final ballot-' ing. Elected executive vice-president was Robert A. Hunter, 1966 "Acorn'- yearbook editor and senior class Senator. Hunter received 1037 votes with his opponent, Roger Petersen, receiving 425 ballots. Other 1967-68 officers are: Dennis Heiner, legislativevice-president; Roger Wise, activities vice-president; and Brent Wilson, financial vice-president. ml Tom Welch and Judy Willmore last week's final elections. : r inn i i ii mi im i iii a iii iiirnwiiff 'i rTT i mi'imiini ir m i ii m n i It was a close race between Wilson and Ron Parker, 1966 junior class Senator, with Wilson winning by a 45-vote margin, 753 to 708. Another tight contest was the legislative vice -presidential race with Heiner beating F. L. Chase 770-669 votes. Mac Stevensen, "Acorn" publicity manager, was defeated by Wise, 1966 Tallyman and chairman of the WSC Games and Recreations Committee, 802 votes to 654. Elected 1967-68senators-at-large were Tom Welch and Judy Willmore. Miss Willmore received a total of 847 votes, with Welch winning with a total of 872 ballots. Also running for the office were Bruce Nilson, 623 votes, and Cheryl Lorenc, 452 votes. Final tabulations by the Elections Committee showed that 1469 stu- were elected senators-at-large in : OGDEN, UTAH dents voted last week, 600 more than those who cast ballots last year. Dick Bowman, elections chairman, said one of the main reasons for the upsurge in voting was the addition of two new polling places. In past years, only one booth had been installed in the main foyer of the Union Building. Additional booths were placed in the Technical Education Building and Building Four. "I suspect the voting would have been much lower," Bowman said, "if we had installed only one polling place." He continued, "another factor in the increased number of voters could also have been the strate-gis location of the new piling booths." The number of voters in last Friday's election doubled the number of ballots cast for the primary contest. Approximately 600 votes were tabulated in the primaries as compared to 1469 in the final elections. Nebeker Appointed Studentbody President Weber State received two new studentbody presidents last weekend.Perry Perea was elected by the students as president for the 1967-68 school year and Jerry Nebeker was appointed president for the remained of this year. Nebeker replaces JackB. Suttle-myre who resigned because of academic problems. The Administrative Council reviewed Suttlemyre's grades and declared him ineligible to continue in office, Dean of Students, Dr. Alan J. Dayley said. Nebeker will continue as Speaker of the Senate and fulfill his other duties. He is a member of Blue Key National Honor Fraternity, Delta Phi Kappa, Pre -Law Association and a former junior class senator. He is an accounting major and plans to graduate in June 1968. .

|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.|
