(Photo by Stephen Mallow) Council elections draw near In last Friday's edition of the Signpost, information concerning candidates for financial vice-presidency was ommitted. Also, because Dennis Hicken was pot contacted by the Signpost this election article is on the candidates running for Financial Vice-president and Public Relations Vice-presidency. Craig Thorsted, candidate for financial vice-president said he would like to add a few duties to the job of Financial Vice-president. "Anybody can do bookkeeping, but I would like to work with the clubs and organizations who are having problems balancing their books." In working out the budget, priority would be given to clubs that show they have the need for the money and in the past have shown that they can handle it, he 1 i .... : c . i said. Elaine Spendlove, Thorsted's opposition for the office, would like to increase the size of the Financial Board. With the extra workers she would go "review the organizations during the year, not just at the end of the year." In deciding the budget for next year, Spendlove would look at the club needs, what they do and how much of the campus is involved. Dennis Hicken, candidate for Public Relations vice-presidency, said that there are many news outlets upon this campus and would like to make an effort toward coordinating them all. He said that this sort of program would save everyone the needless task of duplicating efforts. Of his opponent, Karma Grimm, Hicken stated that she was equally qualified to serve but SDir Kimbal Hale, candidate for School of Business Academic Assemblyman, said he would like to see students more, represented by their assemblymen than they have been in the past. "By having a concerned assemblyman," he said, "a student has a recourse if he feels his rights have been violated by the administration or faculty. The student can voice his complaint most effectively through the assemblyman representing his school." Hale, a junior, majoring in finance, also says that the most important job that he wants to accomplish is eliminating sources that deprive students rights. "If elected, .1 will make sure that the post is organized so each department has representation in matters concerning problems between students and faculty." David Barnett, also running for School of Business Academic Assemblyman, said, "I would like to work toward getting funds back in students hands by convincing the administration that the executive council could see where needs are most, so they could distribute the money more wisely than it has been recently." Better represented Barnett, also a junior majoring in finance, says that the Academic Assembly post needs to be better represented because students don't realize what the school of business and Weber State College have to offer them. "One way students can get in his opinion felt he would be more "p.r. oriented," to high school and community peoples. "Afterall," said Hicken, "where do you get your money?. ..You get it from incoming high school graduates and .Jrom donations from the community. Grimm, also stated that the school was failing in the area of community relations and that she hoped to improve this, if elected. Grimm said that she had some positive ideas that would "help the name of the college." She pointed out that WSC could possibly get into the bicentennial program. Elections are to be held Wednesday, April 9, in the Union Building Lounge. Students are couraged to vote. ants ready plans involved in what their representatives are doing, is by assemblymen placing things they have done for their school in the Signpost. The student has the right to know what is being done about his complaint, gripe, or idea," said Barnett. "I anr willing to represent the' students totally, I am not running to represent myself." "There isn'i any issue too small or" any person so unimportant ' that they don't deserve attention," says Paul Greer Jr., a candidate for academic assembly from the School of Humanities. Greer believes the main purpose of the academic assembly is to act as a "go between" students and administration to improve classroom conditions, develop better curriculum and improve the over-all environment of the college. As a student Greer has maintained a 2.5 GPA, while majoring in music with a military science minor. He is a member of the Weber State College ROTC and also two fraternities, Sigma Gamma Chi and Kappa Kappa Psi. Equal representation . In developing better relationships, he believes there should be more "one on one conferences" between students and faculty. He recommended there be equal representation of students and faculty representing each school in the academic assembly. Greer vows to make sure problems are brought up during meetings and to follow through on things that need to be done. "I believe in confronting an issue head on," he said. Lee Burningham, a candidate from the school of Natural Sciences would like to work towards obtaining a three-year Pre-medicine program. Burningham said it would be his primary interest. Burningham said that he would like to see Weber State College correlate their pre-med and pre- Index Convocations p. 2 Vietnam Debate . . p. 3 Editorial p. 6 Parking Problems p. 7 dent programs with the University of Utah's so that students' could "get going here and get gone," further mentioning that a larger percentage of students who graduated in pre-med or pre-dent went to the University of Utah afterwards. Stronger assembly Burningham stated that this sort of program would definitely upgrade the school of natural sciences. He said that he had heard that President Bishop would like a stronger Academic Assembly. Edward Walker, present Academic Assemblyman was unavailable for comment. Jeff Washburn wants to be a "middle man" betyeen the faculty and students. Washburn is running for the Academic Assembly, School of Social Science. "The faculty doesn't know what the students want, and students don't know how to get problems across to the faculty." Washburn feels he is running for the right reason "To do the job, not because holding office is a popular thing to do." Standardization The standardization of nation wide tests in the Sociology Department is one issue he would like to look into if elected. Kent Fowler, Washburn's opponent, is not registered for spring quarter, has no phone, and therefore could not be contacted by the Signpost. Marcia Johnson, running for Academic Assembly under the School of Health Occupations, was unavailable for comment. The Health Occupations office was not familiar with her name and she was not listed as one of their students. The Studentbody Office said that they thought she had been married and changed her name back, but no one seemed to know Marcia's other Gary Hyland was not reached due to lack of -communication between he and the Signpost.

|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.|
