MnnmaK Two left in editorship race; last interviews come today THE GUITAR IS the principle instrument that will be used during the Dave Loggins pillow concert scheduled for Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the Union Building main desk. (Photo by Dianne Sheldon) by Sharon Harrington News and Features Editor The decision was made in Wednesday's Media Board meeting that Tom Eckhardt and Mary Woodhead remain as candidates for the position of Signpost editorship. Earlier, there were four applicants. Tom Eckhardt, current sports editor stated that his previous experience as editor for a junior college newspaper would help him in furthering the quality of the Signpost. Eckhardt said a special committee could take a poll of the popularity of the UPI wire and if there was enough reader interest to warrant it he would keep it, if not he could not see devoting the time nor the space to it. Woodhead, also said that she would have a poll done by Opinion Research on campus, to determine what parts of the students read the UPI column and therefore whether the Signpost is "serving the students" or "wasting" funds. Free publication Eckhardt mentioned in his Tickets on sale for Loggins Tickets are on sale for the pillow concert featuring Dave Loggins. It is scheduled for Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. in the Union Building ballroom. This winter concert is being sponsored by th; Associated Students of Weber State College. Loggins whose hit "Please Come to Boston," is still on the charts has cut a couple of albums and is working on another. His music fits well into the pop scene as well as country style. Loggins is from rural Tennessee. Although his music has a country flavoring he does not really fit into the country stereotype. He has written songs, not only for himself but for other groups as well. He wrote "Pieces of April," which Three Dog Night Registration starts Tuesday Packets are available now and throughout next week for spring quarter preregistration. Preregistration begins on Tuesday, Feb. 25, with registration scheduled for juniors and seniors. Sophomores will register Wednesday, Feb. 26.

He said, "I don't look at the music business as a place to become a star as the word is applied ... I think I have a talent, although it only comes up once in a while. I try to write things people can share." He thinks "Please Come to Boston" is the best song he has written so far. He said it took him a year to write the song and added "it says lyrically word for word, what I wanted to say." Richie Lecea, a singer and guitar player will perform with Loggins. He said "as a recording artist, I'm trying to evoke emotions from the listeners and I'm hoping the things I'm saying will make them notice." The informality of a pillow concert is something new to Weber. According to Robin Jeppson, communications vice president, students should bring their own pillows and be prepared to sit on the floor. She added that it should be a fun concert with some audience participation. Tickets can be purchased in the Union Building at the main desk for $2.50 with student identification and $3 without. editor application form the Signpost could remain free in publication if "The Signpost would enter a contract with student government which would grant the Signpost continued support at the present level as long as the Signpost provided fair, accurate and responsible coverage of the news affecting WSC students." Eckhardt suggested that the contract could be written with help of a third party, if necessary, to ensure fairness and accuracy to both student government and the media. Woodhead, said the Signpost could remain free by "being free of any censorship from either the administration or student government so that the Signpost will be able to give the students a clear picture of what is happening."When asked about news articles or advertisements concerning abortion clinics, hard liquor, contraceptives and "dirty movies", Eckhardt and Woodhead both said they would run them providing they were in good taste and in the case of news articles, had some reader interest. Open page Woodhead stated that she would open up the editorial page so that students would be more aware that the editorial page can serve as a forum for their viewpoints as well as viewpoints of the Signpost staff. The current News and Wire Editor was asked about the hypothetical case in which she was appointed editor and she and her staff disagreed on an editorial, what would be the outcome? Woodhead said in a case such as this, the subject would' be reviewed if her staff could not convince her that she was wrong and if she felt strongly about it, she stated she would print it with her name on it rather than use it representing the Signpost staff. Woodhead further commented that under her direction, "no personal attacks should be written." The last of the applicants to be interviewed was Bradford C. Carver, past editor of the Latter-day Saint Student Association Publication, The Focus. Fought wire Concerning the UPI wire, Carver said that he fought the wire from the time it was conceived and did not consider the expenditure of $1300 "worth enough cause for the amount of space ... and the time it consumed."Carver was also asked about aborition clinics, contraceptives, hard liquor and "dirty movies" advertisements and news articles.Carver stated that it would depend mainly on where it was aimed, the objectivity and how the subject was viewed. Carver said that the Signpost would need a "massive overhaul." There would be differences in composition, layout, type size, column width, staff layout, page layout, reporting organization, larger point sizes, better photos, better headlines and "absolute standardization." Content small Carver further said that the news content in the Signpost was small and there was not enough news analysis. He said these were his reasons for wanting to drop "the whole thing and start from scratch." Dean Robert S. Mikkelson, brought forth the motion asking that Woodhead and Eckhardt be the only candidates asked back for the formal hearings. Mikkelson in an earlier meeting also moved to have the fourth candidate Robert H. Snow removed. The Media Board will make their decision, today at the 2 p.m. meeting in the Executive Council meeting room. All students who are interested are invited to attend this meeting.

|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.|
