f Vol. 36 No. 15 Weber State College Nov. 21, 1975 t V .v 1' ' X i ) Sfewarts give funds toward Super Dee A private gift of about $250,000, made by Mr. and Mrs. Donnell Stewart, is the first donation received since college officials announced they must seek additional funding to finish developing the Dee Events Center. Hurst estimated that between $400,000 and $1 million is necessary to finish off the site development. Mr. and Mrs. Stewart have previously donated $1 million toward the events center. Dean Hurst, assistant to the president for college development, said the gift will be used to pay for the purchase of seats, lighting, and other improvements not included in the bid on the basic building. Construction of the Special Events Center is on schedule with more than 50 percent of the concrete poured and the total structure about 27 percent completed.The money to complete the center is taken care of, "but we don't have enough left to finish all the site development... money is needed to bring the facility up to its full potential as originally designed," Hurst said. Hurst'said, "In order to pay for the facility with what funds were available, certain items were deleted from the construction bid which could be added at a later date without jeopardizing the basic integrity of the building." F. Lee Bailey here Dec. 1 3& : f ..... . . Bailey for a convocation Everyone el Buck: WSC students will be required to pay $1 to hear speaker F. Lee Bailey on Monday evening, Dec. 1. ise $2. F. Lee Bailey, chief defense attorney for the Patricia Hearst case who has handled some of the most notorious criminal cases in recent years, will speak at Weber State College Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. His talk will be given in the WSC Fine Arts Center auditorium. General admission is $2 for adults, and $1 for children under 16, and also $1 for WSC students, faculty and staff. Defense attorney Attorney Bailey is known as a sensational and brilliant defense attorney, and he enjoys to be known as a sensational man and to reap the newspaper headlines, his brochure says. He has been the defense attorney in such sensational cases as Dr. Carl Coppolino, Dr. Sam Sheppard, the Boston Strangler, Captain Ernest Medina and now Patty Hearst. His acquittal rate for homicide cases is over 93 percent. But he admits that this batting average does not mean that over 93 percent of his clients are innocent ... it means that over nine tenths of the time he is the better lawyer. Lee Bailey has helped to free the guilty. He has also lost a few among the innocent. And that's what bothers him about modern American "justice," his agency's brochure says. When the system does right, it's by accident and when it doesn't do right, innocent people are hurt. The jury trial, insists Mr. Bailey, is a rather elaborate and rather ridiculous game. f -.-'$ 5 .

To date, the Stewarts have pledged over $1.25 million towards the project. Parking lot opens south of FAC The parking lot south of the Fine Arts Center has been temporarily graveled and will be opened for general student parking on Saturday. The new parking spaces will make a total of more than 1,000 stalls on the western part of the campus. There will be two entrances to the lot off 4100 South. The entrances are just south of the lot, next to the Security police offices. Temporary lighting has also been installed so that the lot can be used by night students and Fine Arts Center patrons. Black topping will be added in the spring. Marty Wikstrom of the Ombudsman office which has been active in the fight for improved parking said that his office is very happy to see the administration open up another parking area. He said that his offiee realizes that it has been "an ardurous task for many students to find reasonable parking ... I hope that this added parking area will help change this." He also said that he hopes that the added parking "will help to relieve some of the bad feeling that has gone on between the security office and the students in general."

|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.|
