Grading fails in committee by Dave Midget News Editor The Academic Standards and Admissions Committee voted Wednesday to reject the proposed grading change. The only part of the proposal which was accepted was the elimination of all "WF's" (withdrawal failing) from student transcripts. The rejection of the proposal seriously weakens the chances of the Academic Councill passing the measure. According to Ken Burrows, executive vice president, "the next step is to get the proposal onto the floor of the Academic Council."Burrows commented on the action taken Wednesday saying "if we'd taken a vote a week ago, then we would have passed it. " "Instead the committee members went home over the weekend and reconsidered the proposal." Legislative Vice President Don Hughes echoed similar feelings saying that the "committee didn't have any concrete evidence (for rejecting the proposal) that I heard." "They kept pointing to the A, B, C and D grades as if the elimination of E's was the whole proposal when it wasn't." The measure also proposed the elimination of the bell grading RON RAY expresses views during Tuesday's debate in UB Foyer. The debate was sponsored by the Signpost and the Lectures Committee. (For views of all candidates see pages 8 and 9) (Photo by Denny Osborn ) proposa system and the removal of all I's, WF's, WP's and NC's from a student's transcripts. Hughes commented that of the two major complaints which the committee thought should be investigated further, only student government came through with their research. The two matters which the committee felt should be investigated more were student opinion of the proposal and the impact the change would have on graduate school applicants. Student government polled 1186 students over a week ago to get their reaction to the proposed change. According to Hughes, the results showed a two to one majority favored doing away with the E grade. Yet, according to Hughes the committee failed to check on the graduate school drawbacks. "The members of the committee kept calling the U (University of Utah) but they couldn't reach the man who would give them the answers they wanted to hear." Hughes then commented that the committee members later said that they had gotten the "run-a -round" from the people at the University of Utah, when they just hadn't talked to the person they wanted to.

|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.|
