Wtbtt Volume 28 Number 20 Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 March 28, 1969 7 Aim Of Congress Is Tighter Control At the last Board of Trustee's meeting, President Miller revealed the legislator's desire to have students pay more for their education and a tighter control over student behavior. In his report to the board, President Miller called the board's attention to a number of Senate and House bills which directly or indirectly affected Weber State. Book Exchange Goes Bid Time The Student Book Exchange, set up on this campus for the first time has turned over more than 3,000 books during the past two weeks. More than 1500 students responded to the opportunity offered by the exchange and the members of Delta Sigma Pi who run it said that in it's first quarter of operation the Student Book Exchange can beconsidered 100 successful. All profits from the S. B. E. will go back to the school through the promotion of guest speakers, Business Week, and donations to other groups on campus. The members of Delta Sig would like to thank all the students who have used the exchange and thereby proved that such an operation can work on the WSC campus. Also, a vote of thanks to the administration for giving the fraternity a chance to serve the college in this way. THE CHAMP When "He was the skinniest, ugliest kid you ever saw:'' volunteered Mrs. Phil Johnson, wife of the head basketball coach at Weber State College. If you go into a restaurant and the place mat and napkins have a basketball court on it with X's and O's, that's a disguised sign announcing "Phil Johnson was here." "Sometimes I'll say something to him and he'll answer 'If we put this man under the basket and the guard moves . . . We have some very interesting conversations.""Dear, would you take the Christinas decorations out?'" asked Mrs. Johnson. As of March 22, 1069, the Christmas decorations are still in the house. Mrs. Johnson smiled "I don't want to be a nagging wife, so every two or three weeks I ask him to do it and he mumbles 'sure'. During basketball season, when He explained how HB-318 fixed a new minimum tuition fee for WSC students. The present minimum fee will be raised $10 per quarter. The President expressed confidence that, although the present trend appears to, "...limit attendance to only people who have money...", scholarships, loans, and grants will help poorer students adjust to the extra $10 per quarter. Out of state fees will be hiked by $70-$75. Dr. Miller also stated that HB-228 makes it possible for students to be charged sales tax on meals served in school cafeterias. These changes will go into effect after spring quarter. Commenting on HB-220 and SB-112 President Miller said, "We certainly want to protect academic freedom and student rights... but at the same time protect the rights of the school and the community." These two bills also give the universities in Utah power to "get rid" of radical trouble-makers on campuses. ORDER NOW! Today is the last chance for students to order a campus yearbook. The Acorn staff will be taking orders at a table set up in the lobby of the union building all day today. Cost is $7.00. Students may pay $4.00 down and $3.00 when the books arrive. Does The OH Season i fl- Coach Phil Johnson he's here he's no good. After all, it's only three steps to thegarage." "Dances I Dance" is a program to introduce new audiences to modern dance featuring Betty Jones and Fritz Ludin. They will bring this program to Weber State College Wednesday, April 7 at 6:30 p.m. Miss Jones in association with the Limon Company has taken modern dance, stressing the evolution of it, to Europe, the Far East, and South America. The Swiss-born Ludin received his training in Vienna and Paris. He dances with "manliness, warmth, and a stunning sense of body line," according to the Springfield Union. The pair plans to take time to teach a master-class to the Orchesis dance club while they are here. Establishment Given Seats In WSC Senate The Senate unanimously approved a motion by Curtis Smout to seat a faculty representative and Dean Dayley, anadminstrative representative, in the student Senate, with voice only. The motion made by Smout is in the form of an amendment to the constitution. The action by the Senate clears the way for the proposed amendment to go to the college president, and ultimately to the general studentbody for final ratification. The two additions to the Senate would serve "ex officio" allowed to discuss and present motions, but not to vote on them. Some discussion about a possible vote for the representatives took place previous to the vote. Howard Collett, legislative Vice President, listed three points which he felt were the reasons "For six or seven months Phil has a one track mind and then once basketball season ends, he starts worrying about the next season. He's out recruiting now, but he'll return just as soon as he runs out of clean shirts,'' she knowingly added. "Recruiting this year will be easier since the team has won recognition. Before he would say, "this is Phil Johnson calling from Weber State College in Ogden, Utah," and they would question, " this is who, from what school, and where?" "Phil appears to be very quiet at the games, but actually he's really excitable, he just doesn't show it like some coaches do. For instance, on the way to New Mexico, the plane got in engine trouble, Phil slept all the way through it with the thought that things take care of themselves. However, Gus Chatmon prayed all the way there," she asserted. i'i X ' ' i ht vq why a vote was not given at this time to the faculty and administration. "This is for communication, not to run affairs, this is a student Senate, and one vote out of 15 wouldn't make that much difference." Dave Evans, senator of education indicated that while he felt that eventually a vote would be given to the faculty, "one thing at a time" was enough for the present. Dr. Richard Ulibarri, representing the faculty, stated "I personally feel sure that the academic council will give the students a vote eventually."A vote to decide how many of the senators would favor a student vote in the academic council split the Senate, half not in favor of a vote at this time, and half in favor. Start? Phil Johnson's age has frequently been cited, since he is so young to be coaching such a successful team. "Phil was worried about his age, because he couldn't get too close to his players. In order for the team to work as a team they had to have respect for him. However, Phil cares and is involved with them as people, not just players," Mrs. Johnson summed up. What are some of his favorite hobbies and is he superstitious? In response to these questions Mrs. Johnson stated, "During off season, we attend the Valley Music Hall regularly. Also he enjoys hiking, fishing, and golf. He's not superstitious, but you should see all the things I've dyed wildcat colors." "During off season" is frequently stated by this basketball wife. Possibly during off season, the coach will take out the Christmas decorations? INTERESTED? Students who are interested in gaining experience in campaigns may sign at the main desk in the union building. Alan Hall, chairman of the leadership committee, has started a program which would help students to get into school politics. "Many students want to help butthecandidates don't" know them well enough," Hall said. Any student who wants to help with a campaign should sign at the main desk. No experience is necessary, and the candidates welcome help. Beats a sharp stick in the eye.

|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.|
