Friday's balloting revealed only a 12 count diflerence between his total vote and Rex Frasier's who won the election The totals then were H93 to in Frasier's favor. The recount, held yesterday, showed Frasier with (iill voles results and Bell with Wl votes. Closest election The position of president was the only post that was recounted, because of the 12 vote margin which separated the two contenders. This was the closest election ever to be held at Weber Stale College, which caused the election committee to review it several times before they released I he results Friday. Last year, a 3(i vote difference caused Roy Kay. then a contender for the position of financial vice president, to request a 8 unchanged recount m that race. Have Wilcox was named the winner in thai race by a vote of 1)32 to 8. However, in a reversed decision made after the recount took place, it was discovered that the vote was actually 872 to 859 in Ray's favor. Missing Tallev sheet The reason the voting was wrong last year was because it was discovered that one 1 alley-shoot had been counted tw ice. After this was discovered, the elections committee recounted the ballots lor president also to in Rex Frasier will serve as studentbody president next year as a result of a 12 vote difference in final election balloting held on Friday. The count was 693 to the 681 votes Chris Bell received in the balloting. This contest was the closest race in the history of Weber State College. It determined the officers for both Executive Council and Academic Assembly. Others elected to Executive Council positions include: Jon Bingham, academic vice president, who won over Mark Stuart. The balloting was 684 to 639 in that race. Kyle Mattson, with a total vote of 844 votes, won the race for activities vice president. His competator, Lauri Savage netted 495 votes. The new communications vice president is Robin Jeppson, who won the position over Reid Ger-mer. The tally in that election was 813 to 527. Public relations Neil West won the race for public relations vice president, with a total of 937 votes. Brad Carver received 397 votes in that race. Jeff Hoskins earned the post of student services vice president. He receive 708 votes to Chad Russols" 545 votes. Russel ran in a write-in campaign. The new financial vice president is Jeff Flamm. who won by a 731 to 618 margin over Craig Thorsted. These seven students will be responsible for their individual areas, plus a $80,000 plus student budget, since the council was for- sure that none of the other races were affected by the missing talley sheet. This year, because the voting was done in only one place, the talley sheets were easier to keep track of As a result of this the tabulations were more accurate. Bell was the only candidate to request a recount as his race against Frasier was the closest and would be the only race possibly effected by a minor problem in counting.. race med last year to replace the old Executive Cabinet and student Senate. The constitution which gave authority to the council, also formed an Academic Assembly to deal with the problems of specific schools of the college. Those elected to serve as assembly members are: Mel Hampton, who won the seat from the school of humanities, w,ith 104 votes. Rick Gallegos, won from the school of technology, with a total of 66 votes. School of education Mary Lynn Anderson, with 144 votes, won a seat in the assembly from the school of education. Cathy Corey, won a seat from the school allied health occupations, with 46 votes. Edward Walker will represent the school of natural . science, following his 92 vote win. Craig Hill won in the race for assembly member from the school of business. He won the election 116 votes to 82 votes against Howard Olsen. In the race for representative from the school of social science, Doug Young received 139 votes to Kent L. Porter's 91 votes. About 1400 students voted in this years election.

|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.|
