Volume 30, Number 10 Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 Friday, October 30, 1970 rac mil en mosEx electiEi find D.oss in lead A poll of over two thousand students (nearly 25 percent of Weber's studentbody) taken here last Friday shows students to be divided on their preferences for who should fill Utah's hotly contested seats in the Senate and House of Representatives. The poll results: Moss 1231, Burton 891. Moss' biggest margin was among independents who gave him a 302-145 lead. Mr. Burton ran closer to Mr. Moss among students of voter age than he did among those under 21. In the Congressional race the results were: McKay 948, Richards 1114. Mr. Richards was Frosh platforms presented as voters go to polls today Did you know that an approximate average of votes or representation by a college freshman class is 17 percent? "The trouble with most Freshmen is that they don't feel that they belong. . ." Sound Familiar? The Weber State College Freshman Class of 1971 will have the opportunity to change the facts, and at the same time gain a greater representation for themselves by voting for class officers today. Ralph Ferrara, a graduate of Jordan High School and candidate for Frosh President says that he is "tired of listening to people talk about problems" and would like to lead his calss to an very active year of doing something about the problems. Ralph is majoring in Oceanography and has spent much of his time "pushing" as a member of committees and organization;. A Phoenix pledge and member of the Dance and Advertising Committees, he wants to unite each individual in the Freshman class and get a lot of Freshman representation in student government. A former student leader at Ben Lomond High School, Brent Johnson feels that the answer Weber State College is looking for lies in 100 percent student involvement. As Freshman Class President, Brent would like to see a strong Freshman class emerge through an active Frosh Council. Steve Wideman, the third candidate for Frosh President is majoring in pre-medicine and minoring in political science. He has held offices throughout his high school career and is pledging Pi Kappa Alpha colony on campus. Steve is "interested in actively supporting the Freshman Class in all activities and functions," and seeks your support in the upcoming election. Steve Boyington, Ogden High graduate and candidate for Vice President feels that the "normal Person" is the most important, because college life "ought to mean something to everybody. If they don't feel like they belong, we have to grab them by the shirt collar and get them actively involved." With experience as Forum Guild President and a student council member, Steve says the Freshmen have a lot of fantastic talent that he as an officer for the class would like to utilize. Barbara Brown, former Utah Girl's State representative feels that the emphasis must be placed on achieving unity between the freshmen and upper-classmen at Weber. As Freshman Vice President, Barbara would like to show that WSC can help each student the students will help WSC. Characterized by her bright smile, Barbara is a member of the AWS Council, LDSSA Social Committee and is a pledge of LD sorority. strongest among voting age students, but Mr. McKay ran much closer to him among students under voting age. The over 21 vote was 539-405 in favor of Richards. At the same time the poll was being conducted a "Mock Election" was conducted in the Union foyer. The "Mock Election" involved (about 250 students about 4 percent of the studentbody) and showed victories for all Democrat candidates. Most notably the "Mock Election" results showed Moss more than doubling Burton by a vote of 178-76. Some young Republican members considered the "Mock Election" uniair. AsKea u ne was surprised Dy tnat rigure, Burton s man on campus Glen Curtis replied, "I wasn't at all surprised. The 'Mock Election' was true to its name. It was the biggest 'mock' I've ever seen." Asked specifically what he meant Curtis said, "They had Democrat literature right on the voting table. It was run by Democrats. The College Republicans regrettably allowed the Young Democrats to run away with the thing." Miss Rosalie Hutchinson, a young Democrat, however, argued that the "Mock Election" was a valid sampling and said, "we have encouraged everyone to vote, not just Democrats." Mr. Curtis admitted that Mr. Moss is apparently more popular on campus than is Burton, but said that the 2300 student poll measures students feeling more accurately than do the results of the 250 student "Mock Election." The question will be history in less than a week, as the general election will take place next Tuesday. Business Admin, gets revamping Enthusiastic reorganization of departmental curriculum, procedures, and staff marks a new beginning for Weber's Department of Business Administration. According to the department's chairman, Dr. Charles D. Lein, class prerequisites are being revised, a new emphasis on keeping in contact with the business world is being made, and nine of the department's eleven member day school staff are new faces. Dr. Lein said that the curriculum is being revised so that classes for which students previously had to have unnecessary prerequisites now require no prerequisites. All the instructors have had extensive practical experience in the business world. Plus, through participation in service clubs, business seminars with Ogden's business men, and membership in professional organizations, the teachers keep in constant contact with the business world. New staff members include Dr. Lein, Mr. George Crawford, Mr. Irvin Henrie, Mr. Ned Iverson, Mr. Ben Mason, Mr. Tom Peterson, Mr. Bob Stein, Mr. Jerry Storey, and the new Dean of the School of Business, Dr. Robert E. Rose. Other staff members who were at Weber last year are Dr. Dale Hawkins, and Dr. Edward C. Larsen. The final candidate for Vice President is Dave Danielson, a Bonneville High School graduate. A student in pre-engineering and a Phoenix pledge on campus, Dave has always had the desire to do his part in some type of government. A Senior Senator and MUN representative in high school, Dave is working on some "new ideas" for the Freshman class. "School is for the students, and their participation is important above all." He encourages his class members to feel free to talk to their student leaders and let themselves be heard in student government. The Freshman Class threatens to put that woman's touch into student government that Weber State College is low on this year. The candidates for secretary include Mitzi Mondfrans, a graduate of Ogden High School, Char Oman of Bountiful, Ava Painter and the one representative from the dormitories this year, Sara Lee Ranson. $39,000 grant aids Head Start program A $39,000 grant from the Health, Education, and Welfare Department has extended Weber's Head Start Supplementary Training program until June 20, 1971. Weber's Continuing Education Department has been Utah's headquarters for the Supplementary Training program since H.E.W. initiated the project in 1968. Dr. Carl Richart, the program's manager, said that the aims of the pVoject are to encourage low income people to get training, help them select the appropriate training, and to pay for their training. A few of these low income people have a Bachelor's degree, and want to obtain some other specialized training. In these cases the program pays only one-half of their tuition. The program's aims are achieved through Career Development Committees which consist of low income people, and professional staff which might include a nurse, psychologist, and coordinator. Dr. Richart gives advice on the training offered at various institutions, and of the operations of the institutions. He works with six development committees. They are located in Ogden, Logan, Salt Lake City, Fort Duchesne, Price, and Utah county. These committees operate on a fixed budget, and must screen aid applicants. Their budget is determined by an Ad Hoc State Career Development Committee. This Ad Hoc committee divided the H.E.W. grant between the six committees. Recipients of supplementary training aid chosen by the committees are employees of the Office of Economic Opportunity's Head Start program for pre-schoolers. Along with their training program these recipients are encouraged to take courses in education or child development. These employees might be teacher's aids, janitors, bus drivers, or perform some other needed service within the Head Start program. While performing these services, the recipients are being advised in their own training program by the Career Development committee. In most cases the employees are referred to the institution in their community. However, if their training takes them out of their community, the Supplementary Training program pays their living costs in addition to their training fees. Upon graduation from their training program, they may choose to leave Head Start or may stay employed in the Head Start Program and use their training to strengthen the program. t ' V 4 5 Mr. and Mrs. Donnell Stewart were awarded distinguished alumni awards last Thursday at the alumni banquet. Mr., and Mrs. Stewart have been i prominent alumni and Weber State supporters for many years and have contributed greatly to Weber's growth. President William P. Miller was also awarded the distinguished alumni award. He is the 13th president of this institution and has guided it through its greatest period of growth. Judge David J. Wilson was presented with a distinguished service award at the alu""ri banquet. Judge Wilson served for 12 years on the U.S. Customs Court in New York and is now a senior member of that court.

|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.|
