ivebor state V t r f : (0 u Volume 30, Number 39 Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 Friday, April 2, 1971 , .-. ., jr. 4 ., V j 1 J f " HMMJUMmUfaiMB. - J it : y DAN HUNTER Dan says Dan Hunter, presidential candidate of ASWSC, announced his campaign platform: "As Weber State enters the decade of the 70's, I see two major goals of primary importance: progress and recognition. First consider the idea of progress. Overall I am concerned with the continued expansion of student rights and responsibilities. A student has the right to pursue an adequate education. Student government has the responsibility to insure that right. Inherent within this concept is the right to direct communication. Students, administration, and community must develop a working relationship that can only be made possible through the channel of improved communication. As chairman of the Ombudsman Committee, I have seen a good start toward achieving this goal. The second goal that we as students must be concerned with is recognition. At the Weber State vs. Utah State basketball game, there was a sign that read "Weber Who." We showed them who Weber was athletically; but more important, we must show them who we are academically. Job opportunity, graduate opporutnity, and intellectual excellence are all enhanced by our efforts to improve the academic image of Weber State. Through work with the Student Action Committee, I have seen a need for improving our academic image. The only way that we can improve this image is through responsible student government. As a result of my involvement as Chairman of the Ombudsman Committee, member of the Academic Council, member of Married Student Housing Committee, member of Excelsior fraternity, etc., I am aware and involved in the needs of the students. Primary elections students to vote Primary elections will be held today for the offices of student-body president andsenator-at-large. Greg Bell, Glen Curtis, and Dan Hunter are the candidates for ASWSC studentbody president. The two candidates receiving the most votes shall be eligible to run in the final election on April 9. Senator-at-Large candidates are Steve Glines, Frank Hodge, Don Hughes, Bob Lindquist, and Kim Slater. One candidate will be eliminated in the primaries. Four polling places will be available on campus today between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. These will be located in the Technical Education building, the Science hall, and upstairs and downstairs in the Union building. All full time students having a current studentbody card are eligible to vote. Candidates for other offices in the final election are: executive vice president, Craig Boswell and Jerry Burns; legislative vice president, Fran Wheeler unopposed; financial vice president, Phil Johnson and Mike Sanders; activities vice president, Maria Abramo and Tom Davenport, and write-in candidate Louona Harline. i 7 V GREG BELL Grog says Greg Bell, studentbody presidential candidate is a political science major who will graduate in '72 and is looking towards a law degree. Greg has announced the following as his campaign platform: "My platform centers around the need to apply student government resources to a broader student base. I am firmly committed to helping students with very real concerns. We could serve a great purpose in orienting freshmen and sophomores to the majors they are considering. There are too many people wandering around this campus without vocational direction. Jobs aren't the sole motivation for education, but they're hard to do without. Talk to graduating students. See how many don't know where to go. Graduate school? Army? Fine, if that's what they want, but not out of desperation. Career placement orientation, testing and counseling need to be greatly extended.I also feel a distinct need for a student forum, enabling group discussion of pressing social and political issues, i.e. pollution, rascism, foreign relations. The fraternities and sororities serve a valuable purpose in our campus political structure. I am committed to helping them acquire stability through permanent housing. These are four sketchily outlined areas of concentration I promise. Very essentially I am dedicated to improving the quality of education at WSC and extending the positive effect student government has on your college life. I have served as Leadership Chairman, President of Excelsior fraternity, am a member of Blue Key National Honor Fraternity. D is VOTING DAY f GLEN CURTIS Glen says Glen Curtis, ASWSC presidential candidate has a double major: political science and journalism. His experience includes: Senator-at-large and President Pro Temp of Senate, Films Committee Chairman and member of Union Activities Board, WSC Supreme Court Justice and Chairman of LDSSA Campus Committee. Glen's platform is: "As ASWSC president, I would accent three areas: education, student government, and student services. Each area requires more than new ideas each requires the experience and ability to implement those ideas and improve current programs. Weber students must become education centered rather than merely diploma centered. I suggest "student originated studies" where the student has the responsibility for follow through and can tailor the course to his personal interests. I also feel that we should continue to expand pass-fail, review our current general education requirements and grading system and that we need to encourage students participation in state government. Student government can be strengthened by compiling statues into a "WSC code," appointing senators to head student delegations on faculty committees, increasing responsibilities of class vice president, and by expounding the base of the Senate. Establishing the student ID as a downtown discount card is my number one priority under student services. Other priorities include a tenant union for renters, returning spouse cards to a quarter basis and working to keep book prices down by encouraging faculty to select books more carefully.

|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.|
