T Sthe There will be a gradual warming trend with mostly sunny, pleasant weather. Highs mostly in the 40s Wednesday. Warming to 45 to 50 by Friday. Overnight lows in the 20s. Vol. 34 No. 35 Tuesday, February 25, 1975 Ogden, Utah 84403 Woodhead named newspaper editor Friday afternoon, Mary Woodhead was appointed to take over as Signpost Editor-in-Chief beginning Spring quarter. She was named for the position after several interviews by the Media Board members and by other students. Woodhead, a sophomore who is currently serving as Signpost News and Wire Editor, is majoring in Journalism and minoring in Political Science and Philosophy. She said that her first paper would be out March 21, the day after Spring quarter begins. Woodhead has said that she intends to make several changes in the way the Signpost is both run and the way it presently looks: She feels that "more firm positions are needed. The Signpost should have at least 10 or 12 persons designated as staff 1" .-, f -. Mary Woodhead reporters. These shouldn't just be students who are taking reporting classes but people who are actually writing for the paper." Anyone write In order to get these reporters Woodhead said "I intend to advertise for reporters in the Signpost. This way anyone who wants to write can do so." She said she would like to see more stories about the academic W 1 ' 11111 ' "" """"'" fa a f areas of Weber State and more coverage of the different faculty committees. The new editor would also like to change the masthead, adding that she would like to see one with more dignity. As for changes in the student newspaper, Woodhead said, "We will have more feature-type stories in the Signpost. This way, I think people will be able to relate to the paper better. Concerning the wire service, she would like to have a poll taken .through student government or if they decline, through the Signpost concerning student interest. "Also I believe the accuracy of the information in the Signpost needs to improve. We need fewer misspelled words and names. I feel if we can get our reporters then we can allow our editors more time to check on the accuracy of the stories." Woodhead said "I think a lot of students on this campus are dissatisfied with the present Signpost. They are tired of the inaccurate reporting and we need to do something about it." Little shakey Regarding her relationship with student government, she explained "the relationship right now between the paper and them is a little shakey. I feel student government is getting too much coverage. Not every one is that interested in every motion that Executive Council passes. "The Signpost must be free of censorships and at the same time the students are paying for their newspaper which makes student government a sort of mediator for them. Perhaps some kind of written contract should be worked out between the paper and Council. This could include the duties and the rights of the paper and also the powers kept by student government." Woodhead will announce her staff and her editorial policies to the studentbody in her first editorial which will be published March 21. She said "I have most of my staff picked but there are some people that I need to talk to yet."

Carr gives performance for students Vikki Carr, one of the top-selling female singers in this nation, entertains at a special free convocation at Weber State College during the noon hour Feb. 27. Because of the enormous popularity of the songstress, college students and administrators arranged a priority system through which a free ticket to her program can be obtained. Carr's hour-long program will be held in the 1800-seat auditorium in the WSC Fine Arts Center. With the 90 chairs to be added the maximum under the fire code facilities will still be inadequate to accommodate the fans. Daniel L. Martino, WSC coordinator of cultural programs, said the committee of students and administrators arranged the following priority schedule: WSC students, faculty and staff have the first priority to obtain tickets. Each must produce his ID card, and will be given only one ticket to a reserved seat. This group picks up a ticket at the Fine Arts Center ticket office, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., today. The general public and all others have opportunity to obtain a free ticket, if any remain, Wednesday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Carr's performance is sponsored by the WSC Associated Students. She is the only female singer of Mexican-American heritage who has made it to the top as a major recording and night club star. Her Weber State performance comes as part of Chicano Emphasis Week. Carr has guest starred on every major network variety show and has headlined the finest night clubs in the world, from London's "Talk of the Town," to New York's Persian Room. Her status as an international star was heralded in 1967 by an invitation to perform for Queen Elizabeth at the Royal Command Performance in London.

|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.|
