w Volume 29, Number 15 c ounci new on campus The Inter .Religious Council constitution passed the Senate last Monday, and stresses the' theme "work together" for all. denominations. The purpose of the council ac cording to Bruce Taylor, presi-dent, is to "foster a better religious attitude on campus." "To get more students active, in religious life while at col-lege," says Taylor. i The constitution was held in the Senate for four weeks, pend. ing minor difficulties and tech. nical problems, but no "objec tions" to the council itself were registered, according to the president. Two members of each campus affiliated denomination will sit on the council, each with voice and vote. Members of denominations which have not had constitutions approved by the Senate may serve on the council with voice only. Officers of the council, are from three separate denomin. ations, and one denomination can. not hold office two consecutive years, indicated Taylor. This year, the president, is from the Neuman Centre, the vice president, Colleen Curtis, is from the Latter-day Saint Stu. ' dent Association, and the sec. retary-treasurer, Marsha Zill, is from the Campus Christian Fellowship. "This is not just a Christian council," emphasized Taylor, "We would like students on cam. pus from all other churches or denominations to get in touch with us." Working closely with the Dean of students, Alan Dayley and ad-ministrative vice president Ro. bert Clarke, the council has been assured the administrative council will be in favor with the newly organized council.

The march was organized in conjunction with the national protest against United States involvement in the Vietnam war. The Liberal Students Group on the Weber State campus organized the march. Approximately 100 people participated in the demonstration. 4403 Happy together ttidwrds discusses evaluation progress On page 8 of this paper is a ballot for student and faculty to mark their preference concerning faculty evaluation, and whether they feel results of a student poll should be made available for the public. Michael Richards, evaluation committee member explains the situation. "The rationale behind course evaluation is to improve the quality of instruction on the campus. You can't contend with the goal, though you can contend ivith the methodology and technique used," said Mike." "This year, students didn't want to approach evaluation as they did last year. They feel the evaluation has to have, in the words of one senator, "teeth". From the student point of view, I concur," continued Richards, "but besides that, stu-dents need to know precisely about the structure of a class. The catalogue doesn't give precise course discription." "The student ought to know what is expected of him, and what the teachers expect of him in the way of outside work." Most teachers neglect to clari-fy class objectives." "It is something that is need-ed if education is to be worth anything." "A publication that would item-ize course situation would be a great deal useful than a faculty whipping post." "The purpose of the committee," he went on, "as I see it, is to appease the three main factions, the students, the facul-ty, and the administration. The administration will not finance anything which will threaten the faculty." "We have been working together for 4 or 5 years to de. velop communication, and now we're getting to the point where we can talk and iron out pro. blems. Now, anything that threatens the faculty drives a granite wedge between us." "And then this threat came along, and if we don't work together, this little threat is going to raze all our past endeavors." "But," he concluded, "if the November 18, 1969 faculty doesn't come across, we are going to do it on our own." WSC helps project in community Fourteen campus social and service clubs and organizations will be involved next week with a community project to help mentally and physically handi-capped people gain a means of self support. The Weber State organizations will join together Wed., Nov. 19 for a door-to-door drive for funds to finance a shelter. workshop for handicapped people in the Ogden area. Alpha Rho Omega, Beta Phi Beta, Delta Phi Kappa, Excel-sior, Pheonix, Sigma Delta Pi, Kyathinia, Otyokwa, Tau Theta Nu, LaDianeda, Blue Key, Car. dinal Key, Latter-day Saint Stu. dent Association, and the student housing group are the groups participating in the drive. A group of interested people from the Ogden community recognized the lack of programs for the handicapped person over 21 years old, and have been or. - ganizing a shelter for them for the past two years. This drive will be their first fund-raising project and they hope to start the program in 1970.

|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.|
