Snow? Vol. 34 No. 23 Greeks lose houses in city zoning hassle Greeks of Weber State College are facing difficulties in maintaining their houses due to Ogden City zoning laws. The zoning laws in question state that not more than four unrelated individuals may live in a single dwelling unit. According to H. J. Orme of the Ogden zoning commission, there are infractions of the ordinance. Frat houses above Harrison Blvd. are in violation of or- First Stone comes back "It appears the First Stone, the creative arts supplement to the Signpost which was so popular last year, once again will be published at Weber State College," said Dave Midget, editor-in-chief. "We are asking studentbody and staff support in making First Stone a success. Anyone with short stories, poetry, photography or art work who would like their work published may submit it to the Signpost office any weekday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.," Midget stated. He added that some three dimensional works which can be reproduced through photography could be used. First Stone was not published autumn quarter because of the student magazine Cognito was to include it. However, because of difficulties with the magazine, the Signpost may again publish First Stone. Although no official approval has been given for the re-emergence of First Stone, Dave Midget, editor in chief, said that "it looks pretty good." Midget went to Executive Council and asked for an appropriation of almost $1,800 to print the publication this quarter. Council members told him that they did not feel that the decision on whether or not First Stone should be continued was theirs. They then asked for Midget to discuss the idea with the Media Board tomorrow for their approval before bringing the idea to them Deadline for submitting work is Jan. 31. Anyone connected with Weber State may submit work for consideration. First Stone will be published and distributed with the last Signpost of the quarter March 4.

La Dianaeda, Otyokwa, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Sigma Nu have all given up their houses. Most of them were forced to give the houses up because of city pressure. Neighbor complains Wilkinson said the reason the city has been pressuring the frat houses is because of one neighbor who complains if anything bothers him. He said as far as his fraternity was concerned they get along with all the other neighbors except one. He said, "If all the neighbors complained, the fraternity would stop having large group functions at the house." Wilkinson said that Pi Kappa Alpha has fought it and fought it. They have now reached the point that the city must prove they are operating a frat house which would include taking pictures of the inside of the house. Pi Kap has a lawyer working with them in maintaining their right to the house. Need permit Beta Theta Pi is now renting ' v":": V-;; -:;'-ra ( . . ; - . - , " y J h ' X'V- W.'l r" ' ' " . ' - y : V.

He said this house is in a commercial zone which requires tney get a permit from the city to live in that house. Wilkinson said some of the sororities have rented apartments together in apartment complexes nearby. He gave Tau Theta Nu and LD as examples. Tau Theta Nu has rented apartments at East Ridge and LD has rented in the apartments "down by the hospital." There are plans for a Greek row, Wilkinson said. He added that in a few years there will be more alumni pushing the administration, along with undergraduates who want a Greek row. Wilkinson said when the row is built, it will serve to make the Greek system at WSC stronger and the zoning hassles would be taken care of.

This equipment was purchased at the end of last spring quarter with studentbody funds. According to Farrell Shepard, director of the Union Building, very few students have asked to use this equipment. He said most of the equipment could be used better during the spring or summer rather than winter. He added however that it did not receive very much use during the fall which could be due to the fact that not too many people are aware that it is there and free for student use. Shepard said, "Like everything else in the Union Building, this equipment is for the whole studentbody. There are no favorite groups." The Union Building provides other services and activities for the students at WSC, including the Hobby Cellar, located in the basement for students desiring to work in arts and crafts. Assistance is always provided for those wishing it. The WSC Little Theater provides movies every week as another service of the Union Building. Many other services are provided.

|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.|
