ueber state V- I 0 Volume 31, Number 29 Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 Friday, February 4, 1972 8 Pages makes peuisions s iif's by Terry Porter A new bill revising the Publications Board of the college was to be reported out of committee in the Senate meeting last night. The new bill is expected to be more student oriented, according to Tom Davenport, activities vice-president. He also feels that it represents the various branches of the college more fairly. The various members of the new board would come from the various sections of the college -- from student government, the administration, the staff, the publications themselves, the faculty, and the student-body itself. Representing the Executive Cabinet (the studentbody officers) would be the executive vice president. He will be the chairman of the board and will vote only in case of a tie. The administration will be represented by the Dean of Students, Alan J. Dayley. The Coordinator of Student Government, Curtis Smout, will be the representative from the staff. He is also the president of the Staff Association. From the studentbody will be two students appointed by the Executive Cabinet, that are not representatives in the student government. They will serve for alternating terms of two years. A new one will be appointed each year so that one will always have a year's seniority over the other. A student also will be appointed by all the editors of the various publications. However, he cannot be one of the editors-in-chief. One of the school's senators will, be elected to the board by the senate. And the final member, representing the faculty, will be a faculty member with experience in publications. He will be appointed by the administration. The new publications bill also explains the responsibilities and purposes of the board. It explains also the duties of the people in the organizational structures of the publications, especially that of the editor-in-chief and the business manager. The development of the new publications bill came about as a result of the abolishment of the old publications board last quarter. A temporary board has been operating since that time. The ideas behind the new bill came about as a result of studies of the publications bills of other Utah colleges, especially that of Utah State, and of that of the University of California at Davis. The publications board has the right to hire and to fire members of the publications. It sets the policies of the publications and also endeavors to keep them free from libel. A 'U i , v t , y - ft J v ' " 'I- At 11:00 a.m. in the FAC auditorium, Ballet West will present a free program for Weber students. The Utah based company received international fame after a tour of Europe last summer. Ballet West twirls today The Convocation series has arranged for Ballet West to present a performance today at 11 a.m. in the FAC auditorium. The last performance Ballet West presented at WSC was the annual Nutcracker Suite. The Ford Foundation awarded the ballet company a grant in 1963 to aid in the development of the troupe. The $175,000 grant had a stipulation that the amount would be matched by local contributions. The grant was paid over a period of four years. As a result, the company originally known as the Utah Civic Ballet grew so rapidly and became so well known that it was asked by the Federation of Rocky Mountain States to represent not only Utah, but the entire West. The Federation is an interstate compact involving Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. It was at this point that the Utah Civic Ballet changed its name to Ballet West. During the past summer, Ballet West toured Europe where it furthered its reputation as a top ballet company. explores mm wn$ An Exploration of the varied wildlife heritage of the North American continent "Gems of Nature" is the second offering of the Weber State Smoke settles after 1 year By Wil Grey Relative peace now reigns where once the battle between smokers and non-smokers once raged. Last year a minor controversy arose concerning the smoking policy in the Student Union Building. Smokers complained that there wasn't enough room devoted to an open smoking policy, while non-smokers contended that extention of the smoking area would be an infringement on their rights. In an experiment to try and work out an equitable settlement the whole snack-bar area was opened to smokers. Also, room 325 upstairs in the Union Building was also made available to the smokers. Student Union Director J.F. Shepherd says he has received few complaints or comments on the smoking policy this year. The few complaints he has received concerned smoking in the lobby and not in the areas now open to smoking. He also commented that a few smokers have been making unknown and unauthorized use of some of the other rooms which have resulted in minor property damage. College Audubon film series Feb. 4. The color film will be narrated by its producer Burdette E. White, at 8 p.m. in the WSC Fine Arts Center auditorium. Admission is $1 for adults and 50 cents for students, tickets are available at the door, said Dr. O. Whitney Young, WSC audubon director. In Mr. White's film the sparkling colors and vivacious activities of a dozen species of hummingbirds and the workings of bizarre and rarely observed parasitic insects are among the many "gems of nature" shared with the audience, Dr. Young said. The song of the wood thrush is slowed to one fourth of its natural tempo and reveals the remarkable configuration of one of nature's most exquisite voices, he said. Mr. White, a native Californian, has made his love of nature the focus of his life. Pursuing his interest in natural history, he earned bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of California concentrating on zoology, entomology and botany. After many years as a teacher and administrator in public schools, Mr. White turned his life long avocation of wildlife filming and conservation into a new, full-time career. He is a recipient of the Photographic Society of America's honorary Fellowship Award.

|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.|
