Editor Dan Hunter was declared the winner of a challenged student-body election Friday at WSC by a margin of only 21 votes. According to John Ferrara, Elections Committee Chairman, a cardboard box, instead of a regular locked ballot box was used in Promontory Towers. The Elections Committee challenged the election procedure because, Ferrara explained, this box should have been delivered unopened to the Chairman. Instead, the box had been opened, ballots counted, and then left in the office of the Student Coordinator.The Elections Committee questioned that these votes should be counted. There were 112 ballots in the cardboard box which gave Hunter 80 votes and Curtis 32. Without the questioned votes, Curtis would have been the winner by 27 votes. It was originally announced that, because of irregular voting procedures, a new election for president would be held. This decision was made by the Executive Cabinet, the Elections Committee, and the presidential candidates. The decision . to hold new presidential elections was reversed; and Hunter declared the winner. According to Farrara, this reverse decision was made by the Executive Committee because the question was raised concerning the legality of the entire election. The final official presidential tally was Hunter 1006 and Curtis 985. Another unique feature of this election was the election day endorsement of Dan Hunter by the Signpost editor. According to Peggy Barker, past editor of the Signpost, "This has never been done before at WSC." Fran Wheeler was the unopposed winner of the office of legislative vice president with 1680 votes. Jerry Burns polled 1072 to defeat Craig Boswell's 894 votes for executive vice president. Phil Johnson won financial vice president with 1004 votes against Mike Sanders with 963 votes. Tom Davenport with 766 votes won activities vice president over his opponents Maria Abramo's 727 and Louona Harline's 478. Senator-at-large winners were Steve Glines with 1094 votes and Don Hughes with 1034 votes. Defeated senator-at-large candidates were Bob Lindquist having 728 votes and Kim Slater with 682 votes.

|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.|
