He is Richard Holbrook, a junior majoring in sociology with a minor in music.

The recital was held on the University of Utah campus in the Art and Architecture Auditorium. Auditions began last January for WSC students only. Five vocalists were chosen: Gary Christensen, Richard Holbrook, Rosanne Shaw, Mary Thurgood and Verla Jean Urie. At a recital held Feb. 1, Mr. Holbrook, Miss Shaw, and Miss Urie advanced to the state level. Finally, at state auditions on the University of Utah campus, Mr. Holbrook was selected with four other singers from the University of Utah and BYU to participate on last Saturday s recital. Holbrook a baritone, sang: "I Attempt From Love's Sickness to Fly" by Purcell, "Im Herbst," a German art song by Robert Franz, the Negro spiritual "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen," and "Avant de Quitte" from Gounod's opera "Faust."

A graduate of the Utah School for the Blind and Ogden High, Holbrook is a vocal student of Lyneer C. Smith. Faculty members of NATS at WSC are Evelyn Harris, Inga Smith, Lyneer Smith and Hans Karl Schade. Last year's Weber State representative to the NATS recital was mezzo-soprano Ann Forsyth. new studentbody president lists goals, hopes Editor's note: Fran Wheeler was recently elected studentbody president of Weber State College. A short interview was held with him to get ideas as to the direction WSC will be taking next year. Signpost: What is the most important thing you expect to do this year? Fran: There won't be one most important thing. One thing I intend to do is get things started early so the other officers and I can work through the summer on many different projects which will each be important. Signpost: One of your campaign promises was to open the student government up to more students. How do you plan to implement that promise? Fran: I've met with other elected executive officers and formulated a plan to receive applications prior to the end of the school year. Much will be dependent on the publicity the Signpost gives and the student awareness of the positions that are available. Signpost: The Ombudsman has been very outspoken this year. What type of an individual do you expect to appoint to succeed him? Fran: I'd like to appoint a person who will be active in student rights and maintain an active committee, but recognizes the proper channels to be followed and shows concern for the attitudes of the administration and the studentbody at large. That's quite an assignment. Signpost: A new president of the college will be chosen soon, how much will you be able to influence the choice? Fran: At this point the selection process is almost completed and the student imput on the selection committee has been made by ASWSC President Dan Hunter. Signpost: How well do you expect to get along with the new student senate? Fran: I hope very well. Having served in the Senate a couple of years already, I realize the perspective with which those senators will look at things. I hope we can maintain open communications because I believe that will be the key to our relationship. Signpost: How many appointments to the various committees will you make? Fran: As president, I personally will make only a few appointments. However, the entire Executive Cabinet will appoint about 80 students to the various faculty, administrative, and student committees. Signpost: Is there any one big problem you will face as president? Fran: I don't think there is any one big thing. It will be a combination of many small problems. We have to look at them individually and handle them separately.

|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.|
