Just this last week the policy board sanctioned plans to remodel room 280 in the UB (across from the bowling alley) into a coffee house for student en tertainment. The remodeling will include carpeting, barnwood decor on the walls, dim lights, and a stage for the performers. It is hoped that a soft personal atmosphere will be created for students to enter into for light refreshments and entertainment.The Music and Talent Association is sponsoring this endeavor and plans to have performances about two or three nights a week with a possibility of noon programs also. Auditions will be held the end of this month to find the top talent of WSC. The dates of these auditions will be printed in a future issue of the Signpost. In addition to our own WSC performers national circuit talent will be brought in to our coffee house. Efforts to involve the entire studnetbody will be made next week when an opinion poll will be used to give the coffee house a name. Anyone who is interested in helping to put these plans into action or who would like more information, contact Mike Denning, Chairman of Music and Talent. Weber's Indian students do summer social work Victor Joe Jr., Edison Curtis and Cynthia Begay were among 15 American Indian students who recently completed a summer work-study experience in social work on the Navajo Reservation. They were employed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs Social Services Department at Tuba City and Chinle, Ariz. The summer work experience is part of a social work career training program for American Indians directed by the University of Utah's Graduate School of Social Work at Salt Lake City, Utah. Students participating in this program were employed as social workers through the Bureau of Indian Affairs and LDS Social Services. The majority of the students worked with American Indians on Reservations including the Navajo, the Uintah and Ouray and Fort Hall. The program is designed to train American Indians, Eskimos, and Aleut social workers for any of the varied social work positions available in American today. Any American Indian student may apply for admission to the program. While the program is designed to begin with college students in their junior year, qualified applicants who are seniors or graduate may also be admitted to the program and are encouraged to apply. Application may be made to Dr. Kenneth A. Griffiths, Director, American Indian Social Work Career Training Program, Graduate School of Social Work, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112.

GGCjWG5fl by Barbara O'Shell Neaative Senate reaction is generally the current response to budget requests being considered by the WSC Student Senate in this years sessions. Fund allottment was based on an anticipated enrollment increase; however, actual enrollment has decreased. Senators are aware that funds are limited; but haven't yet obtained a report listing specific figures. Working under the handicap of insufficient information, Senators are having a difficult time evaluating requests. Hence the general attitude of opposition. The KWCR request for $1 ,000 to purchase a teletype from UPI failed by a vote of 8-5. Ombudsman request for ido was returned to Finance Committee for the second time pending formulation of an Ombudsman policy statement. Ombudsman, the Student Grievance Committee, is probably one of the most controversial current activities on campus. There are presently nine investigations being conducted by Ombudsman. One of these investigations, which incidently was instigated without a specific signed complaint, is an investigation of the entire Sociology Department. They are conducting a survey to obtain information concerning "quality of teaching methods, quality of texts, and pertinence in academic training", according to Brad Post, Chairman of the Committee. He claims that this is not a duplication of existing survey channels and also questions the accuracy and validity of past survey attempts of teacher evaluation by the students. Mike Grow, Student Senator and one of the chief opponents of the Ombudsman budget request, pointed out in Senate debate that professional reputations were at stake and wanted a clearly defined policy statement from Ombudsman before considering their request. Budget requests from other organizations which were assigned to Committee include an International Relations budget request for $495 submitted by Al Lyon, president of Model United Nations; an Acorn budget request for additional funds amounting to $4,500 which brings their total expense budget to $9,500; a request by Associated Spanish Mexican Students for $735; and a $400 request for Traveling Assemblies. These requests are expected to be reported out of Committee and debated in next Mondays Senate Session. Senate is held weekly on Monday in Room 238 of the Union Building at 6:30 p.m.

|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.|
