Senate funds Softball team; Bishop appears in session by Dave Midget News Editor Student Senate voted Wednesday morning to give Women's Ex-tramurals $881 to help finance the women's soft-ball team trip to the national playoffs being held in Omaha, Neb. A question and answer period with Weber State President Joseph L. Bishop was also included in Wendesday's session. Mrs. Joy Wood, spokesman for the softball team said that this is the first time in history that Weber has made it to the finals." Continuing Wood said that throughout the year "the girls pay for their own transportation, food and motels which no other athletic team on campus does." She then presented a request for $1116 to finance the trip. Curtis Smout, coordinator of student government, then moved to adjourn the meeting for one minute and then reconvene. This motion was made because of a Senate rule which requires a bill to be sent to committee before being enacted upon. Smout's motion to adjourn for one minute was passed and the finance committee met briefly to discuss the request. . Upon reconvening, the finance committee recommended that the Senate grant the entire request of $1116 to the softball team. Sen. Gary Carter then amended this figure to $500 saying that he felt the Senate should not do away with its last reason for existing by giving away all the remaining money in the student government budget. Sen. Farrell Woods spoke against the ammended figure saying that if "the Senate goes on the same rational" as it did when funding the nurses trip to Minnesota, then the whole $1116 should be granted to the softball team. Sen. Becky Sparkman then moved to ammend the request to Sen. Brent Johns spoke against the request saying, "I don't think the general studentbody is in favor of this kind of funding." Wood disagreed with that statement saying, "I take exception to that. Just last night (when Weber won the trip to the finals ) we had about 500 people at our game." The motion to grant the softball team $881 was then voted on and passed eight to two. Included in the questions addressed to President Bishop was one inquiring as to whether Dr. Foulger, dean of business, is going to be used as acheck-and-balance on the new student government. . Bishop replied that the "intent was not to monitor but to establish a way for us to work together." Bishop was also asked whether the budgets which have been transferred from student government to the administration for funding are in danger of being cut. According to the president, these budgets are not being cut and in fact "in some cases, we're putting more money into these programs."

MM ! - j- j- i l J- 1 J I J- J J- i- i- I by Melinda Sowerby Bidding has been completed by various food service companies to handle the Weber State College contract. The field has now been narrowed to three companies one of which will probably receive the contract. A committee has been checking out the various companies, regarding customer satisfaction as the most important factor. This committee, made up of representatives from the administration, students, faculty, staff, dormitories and student government was appointed by President Bishop in February. Its purpose was to evaluate the present food service program, as to customer satisfaction, financial factors and the program for the Distributive Education Department. They were then to make a recommendation as to whether the college should contract the service or operate it themselves. This committee recommended that the present food service be maintained. However, as part of an administrative decision, the food service was put up for bids. Through the proposals submitted, three companies were selected to give a final presentation to the committee. The three are Saga, Professional Food Management Corporation and Prophet. These three were selected on the basis of . their financial reports. These final companies submitted competitive bids, so the committees decision will be based on the companies ability to provide customer satisfacton and their ideas for the Distributive Education Department. Each company stated that they would provide special dinners for various occasions; snacks for exams and seconds in the resident hall cafeteria. They each have a professional dietician prepare their menus, and would each provide a manager or assistant manager. Professional Food Management and Prophet work on a five week cycle for the dorm food. Saga handles this on an eight week cycle. The Saga and Prophet representatives both mentioned student committees to give feedback to the managers. All three indicated that all prices would remain nearly the same, and any raises would have to be approved by the college. Saga indicated that the skyroom may occasionally be changed to a different format to provide variety. They mentioned such changes as a menu type operation, a dessert wagon and a nightclub set up for special college functions. Yesterday, the committee met to further review the organizations and make assignments to check out references the companies gave. It has not been decided as of yet. when the committee will vote for the final time.

|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.|
