Vol. 34 No. 45 Weber State College April 15, 1975 Bookstore gets complaint from Hill May form library at base Formal complaints were sent to Dr. Dix Cloward of the Economic Department and Robert Stein, Assistant to Cloward complaining of classroom operations and bookstore management inadequacies. The Student Advisory Committee of the Bachelor of Science of Logistics program in thinking about forming a library at Hill Air Force Base in order to meet necessary books needs of the students. Don Cramer, coordinator between Weber State College and Hill Air Force Base says that this might be the solution to some of the problems we're facing. Cramer mentioned that under this program books could be gathered through buying power or donations from older students and that students currently taking a logistics class could borrow a book under a library system without having to rely on the WSC bookstore. Cramer stated that this had happened once or twice before and the students literally got their books two weeks before the quarter ended. Secondary concern Weber State College is being paid $300 for each student, said Jim Buller, instructor of con-figuration management, "students seem' to be their secondary concern." "Not at all," says Cloward, "In the first place, the government pays $12 a credit hour and books for their students." Cloward hired Buller to teach configuration management to Hill Air Force Base employees Black Scholars unite for emphasis Black Emphasis Week sponsored by the Black Scholars United started yesterday and will run through Sunday.

A letter was sent to Cloward from Buller, expressing a desire to work with 30 to 35 students in a classroom, limiting the class to the number of books available. Cloward said that what the problem amounted to was that a class had been opened up to more students than had been anticipated for and the instructor felt that the quality of the in- Willie Davis in the in the Ballroom Union Building "Soul Food" luncheon and program will take place af Promontory Towers, "A tribute to Blacks in America .

Opening up the class added more problems, said Cloward, there weren't enough books for the students. The only reason we haven't opened up a library to this point is because of logistics, said Cloward, if you'll excuse the pun." We have discussed this before but the problem was that we have no where to store the library books as of yet, and if we do find somewhere to store the books, our next problem would be who would take care of the books and lend them out. "These are some of the problems we have run into so far," he said. If there are any complaints or criticisms, or even suggestions we would like to hear about them. Not enough books Said a spokesman from the BSL program, "Dr. Cloward put a tentative limit on the class of 36." "...after the classes had closed four students talked to Dr. Cloward, four talked to Bob Stein (assistant to Cloward,) and three more signed up through the Air Force Assistance program." "Mr. Buller feels that WSC is more concerned with the money that the students would being into the college, and he feels that the students are being cheated," " 5. ?t " & k f 1 ", '. I ', '. ' I at the Weber State College bookstore, many classes and departments on cannot obtain books until after the quarter begins. (Photo by Stephen the spokesman continued. It was explained that Buller likes to give the student more individual help and this was part of the basis for his questions to Cloward. Cloward stated that the problem was a simple one; one of underestimation. Government people Clowards assistant, Don Cramer, stated that this problem is mainly caused by the way operations are set up. Cramer said that he and Cloward usually know how many government contracted people are going to take the class, but have no idea as to how many people will take the class under the G.I. Bill until the time of registration. Cloward added, and book orders must be in by -that time. "Students were coming to me," he continued, "and for one reason Index Ice Cream parlor p. 2 Issues Week' p. 2 Interview with president-elect KyleMattson p. 5 Editorial: Campaign Litter. ... p. 6 Future of Higher Education ... p. 8 , - M ;: : : II . . . , ft ...... or another I let them in the program..." "At the time," he said, "I thought I was doing the students a favor by allowing them to exceed the limit." Flexibility In day school, he continued, we have the same sort of class and it averages 50 to 60 people and it's only offered once a year. "Don't you see? If we don't let students in, we'll louse up our flexibility." "What happens when .we start becoming rigid about the limit of the class, what's going to happen to the entire program?" I can't forsee an answer to the problem, said Cramer, but a solution might be to conduct a survey of who would be interested in taking the class ; the only problem with that is that there is such a short period of time in between the end and a beginning of a quarter.

|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.|
