J . . A. Volume 30, Number 13 Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 Tuesday, November 10, 1970 Senate I ocks horns with administration Weekend library hours have been shortened at Weber State and the Student Senate has objected to the decision. Dean Perry Wilson reported that the library has not been used heavily during weekends. He presented a report of library usage which alleged that less than one percent of the studentbody uses the library at any one time between 5 p.m. on Friday's and Monday mor-"hings.Dr. Wilson said that the Dean's council ap- Hawaiian club forms A Hawaiian Club, was recently organized on campus and had its charter ratified by the student senate. According to club President, Keith Shimizu, the purpose of the club is to bring together all students at WSC who are from Hawaii and anyone else who might be interested. The other officers are Vice President, Calvin Nakayama, Secretary, Beverly Fong, and Treasurer, Lance Gusukuma. All students interested in membership in the club, are urged to contact one of the officers at one of the following numbers: 399-3209 or 393-2010. proved the shorter hours because such spa-se usage doesn't justify the expense of keeping the library open. The Senate didn't reach consensus on the desirability of the action, but it unanimously objected to the manner in which the decision was reached. The extended hours took place two years ago as a result of Senate action. In reducing the hours, however, the administration did not consult students. It is on this point that the Senate objected. A delegation of student senators attended Deans council to present their feelings. They produced a letter from the Senate which was signed by Senate President Craig Tolton. The senators requested that the final decision on the matter be postponed until they study the matter and submit recommendations.In the meantime the new weekend library hours are: Friday, until 5 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday 1 to 6 p.m. -"Si-.

WSC to be all day affair Ever try to find a student (or a teacher for that matter) on campus after 3 o'clock? Rots a ruck! All this may change within the next few years according to the academic vice preisident, Dr. Helmut Hofmann. Dr. Hofmann said that if enrollment continues to grow, and if more space is not provided, then Weber will be forced to schedule more classes in the afternoon. Weber currently has more than twice as many classes scheduled in the morning than it does in the afternoon. From 7 a.m. through 11 a.m. there are 580 classes scheduled. From noon through 3 p.m. 297 classes are held. These statistics exclude labs, and recitations. Dr. Hofmann stated that he feels having more afternoon classes would provide a better balance for the college. "College is not just a morning affair, but should be an all day affair. Education should not stop after the morning," concluded the administrator. Incnouior set syrrtb oiizes o-Side KM I By Marje Jones Theater Writer Photo by John Shupe "For real theater, the Cellar is the most exciting and personal for the audience and performers alike." During an interview last week, scene designer Larry Fulton discussed some of the difficulties involved in staging opera in the Cellar Theatre. "The Triad," slated to open November 10, is comprised of three one-act operas, which are vaguely related only in that they were written by the same composer, Mark Bucci. The staging of the operas in order to achieve some degree of unity was the major problem that confronted Larry. Since "The Triad" is essentially experimental theater, Larry was given the license to be both creative and original. The set design which he chose dates back to ancient Greek theater and is in rare use today. The sets are triangular with each side painted for the appropriate opera. These triangles, or periaktois, symbolize the three-sided aspect of the evening's entertainment. Not only is the scene design unusual, but it also facilitates convenience in the changing of sets. This is not a realistic setting "because realism doesn't belong in Opera," Designer Fulton commented. i IT.. . v V "Opera is a stylized art, and like art takes the emotions and translates them better than words," noted Larry. "The Triad" is unique in that "opera isn't done in the round anywhere." The Cellar Theatre offers audiences the opportunity to become involved and performers the challenge "to act because they are too close to the audience to just get away with singing," Larry added. Larry stated that "The Triad" represents "a very valuable program ' and that to move it upstairs might detract from its beauty." Since this is a workshop of sorts, the Music department has had to shoulder much of the actual work involved in the construction of scenery and the stitching of costumes. In years past, Weber State Operas have met with much success; and all of the people associated with the show are hopeful that this is no exception. Tickets are now on sale at the Little Theatre Box Office. The show will run Nov. 10-14 with a matinee scheduled for aa'i.rday afternoon. Students, faculty and staff will be admitted for half the ticket price. .

|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.|
