J Vol. 4 No. 50 Faculty receives pay raise Three weeks ago we began having meetings, said Kyle Mattson, Studentbody presidentelect, and we're in the process of finding out what's happening..." Mattson said he felt pleased with the progress the new council has shown. Mattson said Keith Wilkinson, student services vice-president elect was in close working relations with the dorms. One of the campaign promises that arose in this years elections was to try and involve more dorm students. The New Executive Council has assigned Wilkinson to planning a tentative dinner with dorm representatives in sincere efforts to improve relations said Mattson. "Karma. (Grimm)... vice-president elect to Public . Relations, has already gotten many of her committee members together that she needs for next year." Jeff Cazier, future activities vice-president, Mattson quipped, "is playing with the money, "..."No, for the most part," he said, "he will be learning a great deal of his job during budget hearings this week." When questioned about Cazier working with the money when Craig Thorsted is to be the financial vice-president, Mattson stated that Thorsted would be working with the general fund and Cazier wouuld be working with the Union Building budget. It's going to be pretty tricky, said Mattson, in reference to the Union Building budget, if the Union Building is to become sufficient. "Mark" (Masur) ... "has been working with Robin (Jeppson) Communications vice-president, getting ideas for' next year's convocations speakers. "Doug Young has the Academic Assembly looking good," said Mattson. Young stated during this week he would decide which students would serve on faculty conv mittees.

Young also said there were still open positions in areaassemblies.

The flag and a certificate will be awarded at a special presentation ceremony yet to be dated. The first of the programs in the 'Good year ahead' President-elect reports Weber State College faculty have received their long awaited raise. "Taking a look at what could've happened, the faculty feels that some posititive strides have been made, said Blair W. Low, negotiating member of a three man team for faculty raises. In late March, Low said "to say the least, we, as Weber State College faculty members, are disappointed by the recent action of the legislature in that they declared only a 6.45 percent increase for faculty salaries for higher education, whereas with public schools an increase amounting to 11 percent was made with an additional increase of 40 percent in their retirement benefits along with a number of other financial increases in their education programs. -J r "Utah employees, including the staff and personnel at Weber State College, will receive over 11 percent for salary increases.

The faculty have gotten their raises. It's a possibility, Low said, without the raise, "college faculty could have been looking toward other sources, they could be looking towards other sources now... I don't know." The negotiating team which consisted of Dr. Blair Low, of the Education Department; Dr. Thomas Burton, of the English Department; and Dr. Richard Sadler, of the History Department; met with Dr. Jerald Storey, vice-president of academic affairs, for the negotiations. Lowalso said increases were made in health insurance policies.

|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.|
