Russell L. Stubbles, rolling up well over 2,000 votes in the primary, will face Herbert Corkey in the November 2nd election. A Vietnam veteran, Mr. Stubbles feels he has the experience and maturity necessary to do a good job. He has campaigned primarily on an ecology ticket, and is one of the founders of ECO (En-viornmental Center of Ogden). He says, "How can we in Ogden propose a Skyline Drive without first finding out what the full effect will be of the proposed urban transit system?" He believes we should welcome new, but clean, industry, to Ogden. Mr. Stubbles stated that, "obviously the first new city expenditures should be channeled into police salaries until their pay is at least up to the national average." Mr. Stubbles, concerned about representation, says that he feels College students, the young, the middle-class, the poor and minorities are not represented as they should be on the present city council.

Dan: Disillusionment with college and its relationship to job opportunity and one year exposure to the draft. Signpost: What is the current status of our library and how will it affect out accreditation? Dan: The library will not affect our accreditation. The library is the twenty-eighth priority on the higher education budget. This means we will not get a new section added to the library, but this does not mean that we will not continue to add to the number of books in our library. Signpost: How successful was the voter registration drive? Dan: We gave five phones, bus service, and free publicity to those interested in a voter registration drive, but I don't think it was very successful. Signpost: What is your opinion of student membership on the State Institutional Council? Dan: It becomes necessary, I think, to have students represented. I would like to see representation. Signpost: What are your plans for the remainder of the school year? Dan: We plan to re-apportion the senate and increase the . responsibility of the Executive ; Cabinet.

Ogden candidates present platforms to Weber State 's student voters by Kerry Bate "Speak Out," sponsored by WSC Lectures Committee, gave students at Weber a chance to hear the candidates for Ogden City Council Thursday at noon in the Union Building Lobby. Ron Ray, who made introductions and was the moderator, turned time over to Dell Laramie who spoke in favor of proposition number one, an amendment to the city charter by which candidates from wards would no longer be elected as though running at large. Mrs. Laramie pointed out that with the new method, candidates will represent their wards, and will not be elected by the entire city. Lloyd Barney, challenging incumbent mayor Walthius, was the first speaker, and discussed why people were leaving Ogden. He pointed out the college enrollment dropped for the first time in 20 years. This will make it harder for the city to get funds. Mr. Barney, Chief Deputy Auditor, said he will offer experience to the city in financing. He concluded with, "the city needs some new faces on the council." Mr. Walthius Spoke Bart Wplthius followed Mr. Barney, giving the incumbent mayor a chance to defend his administration. The Mayor said new industry would be coming into Ogden, and pointed out that new jobs are being created. "I have nothing to be.iashamed of in my administration in the last ten years." Joseph McCune, the next speaker, is an at large candidate. "I have a sincere desire to offer my experiences and services on the Ogden City Council," he said. "How. sweet it is to have Weber College," he continued, "it means more to this community than anything we have." He said that one of the reasons for the decline in attendance at Weber was because of unemployment in the area. DeLyle Jensen, candidate, third Ward, said that, "it's time for a change, to present to you people responsibilities you haver had."

Thq next speaker, Herbert Corkey, is the incumbent, 4th ward. "We're very, very, proud of Weber State College," he said, adding that he is a member of the Board of Trustees. Mr; Corkey, citing 20 years experience as a tax accountant, pointed out he has had experience in dealing with finances. "We recognize Weber State College as one of the largest businesses in the community." He added that things are definitely looking up. Russell Stubbles, the only candidate attending the College, was concerned about representation. Opposing Mr. Corkey, Mr. Stubbles pointed out that no women, no young, no minorities and no students were represented on the council. The council is made up of businessmen. Reacting to some of the other candidates comments concerning industry, Mr. Stubbles said that, "there is more to quality of life in Ogden than just business." He added that, "I don't come to you as a student seeking student support, but as a person seeking your support." Alex Hurtado, the last speaker, took issue with Mr. Stubbles, comment that no minorities are on the council, pointing out that he was a Mexican and appointed to the council last January.

|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.|
