Editor The executive cabinet has de. cided to obliterate the letters on the hill. After the e-xecutive cabinet referred the problem of the unkempt letters on the hill to the Senate, the Senate de. liberated for several weeks; then, they passed a resolution recommending improvement for letters and shuttled it back to the executive cabinet. The action, coming after sev-eral weeks of study by the cab. ' inet, was made to avoid a "temporary" solution to a "permanent" problem. According to Dr. O.W. Young, at whose suggestion the issue arose, the area on the hill will have to be re-vitilized to it's original state." All rocks, trash and litter will have to be car-ried away from the spot. Not mentioning specifically when this will take place, the cabinet mentioned all the other high school letters on the hill, the crooked appearance of the present W, the possibilities of the next officers relapsing into indifference. According to the cabinet, people protest, but "nobody wants to do anything about it." Opposition will be considered only if it can provide a sub. stitute for the permanance of the present condition. Washburn speaks ISU officials fake stand A meeting in President Miller's office last Wednesday confirm-ed that actions were being taken by Idaho State University officials against those students who started the fight at ISU, Oct. 25. The fight began as members of Phi Sigma Kappa, a fraternity, took a Weber sign, Bomb the Bengals. The resultant melee involved about 100 students, with two remaining in the hospital. According to Jay Jensen, ISU Dean of Students, three fraternities are on probation with letters having been sent to the national offices. As the student newspaper, The ISU Bengal, editorially stated it: "Last Saturday's Spud Bowl brawl between Weber State and Idaho fans over an anti-Bengal banner, caused two notable results: (1) It'll make Weber fans l:hink twice about bringing any more banners to ISU games, or perhaps even come to any more functions in Pocatello, and (2) It added a twig to an already tall pile of detrimental facts pointing to a not- altogether true image depicting ISU." Other political cartoons, and poems summed up thepoint-of-view of the general student body at ISU. At the time of this writing action was being taken against those students who initiated the brawl. The student officers and the administration of both schools have one overlying feeling: to help prevent such recurrences in the future athletic events. In the near future members of ISU administration and student officers plan to get together and discuss what steps were taken to see that the guilty par-ties were punished. Another reason for this upcoming meeting is to try and bet. ter relations between the schools. Weber will play two basketball games at ISU, before they visit Weber. A repitition of what happened will be prevented, if possible. President Miller emphasized that he was glad that ISU officials had taken the responsibility In this matter. He further added: "Students don't realize what it does to the people who have the ultimateresponsibility." The Xiberal Students Group of Weber State College, in con. juntion with the National Mora, torium Day observance of November 13, 14 and 15, have planned a memorial march for the even, lng of the thirteenth. The gathering point for the march will be Monroe Park. Marchers will proceed from here at 6 p.m. along Monroe Boule. vard to Twenty. fifth Street re-maining on the east side of the street.

In the regular series of interviews with student leaders, Bill Washburn, legislative vice president, blasts old ideas and says it like he thinks. "I don't think Weber State will ever be a university," said Bill Washburn, outspoken president of the student Senate. "We don't, as a state, have the capacity to finance another university. For example, our parents pay taxes comparative or higher than any other state in the west, including California. You know our industry in Utah is government. Four main industries don't pay taxes. "Our students pay higher tuition than any other comparable state in the West. We can," he continued, "look forward to an increase in tuition in the next two years." Bill then went on to explain that students at Weber are active and we "should feel proud of them for supporting themselves." "Weber State has a fantastic future for development in technology. Technology is the coming thing. We can give liberal arts, but the future is asking for technology." "At Weber, we almost unanimously down-grade technology, but I doubt if you can give me one area of development in the United States which isn't all tied up In technology."Commenting about activism, Bill made point ed remarks about those who took part in the moratorium. "Some of our most liberally minded stu-dents on campus think their responsibility is over once they have opened their mouths. They think their words are gold and their attitudes are 'Right, Truth and Goodness', but they aren't willing to do a damn thing to change things." "A perfect example is the blood drive. When it doesn't deal with their politics, they don't want to touch it, they have 'better' things to do. They are verbal martyrs," he concluded. "They are like the sophists of Greece, they will talk about anything, but won't commit. If they're really against the war in Vietnam, why have they only demonstrated one day?" Bill then attacked the offices school leaders hold. "As studentbody officers, we become an arm of the administration. We are so involved with It all; the Deans; vice presidents; it's like we aren't students any more. We have so many privileges we lose our identity as students." "I'll have to be honest, I- don't know the remedy, but I think many times students aren't represented because we have a vested interest." Then, in a final comment, he mentioned students. "If you want the representation," he said, "ask your representative." Then he thought for a moment. "Almost none of the students know who their representative is. And," he concluded, "if they don't care, neith-er do I." Bill Washburn ASWSC V.P.

|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.|
