Volume 37 Number 24 Weber State College January 21, 1977 mper Dee o o A continuing dilemma by Debbie Carter Progress and problems of the college in many areas were discussed . at Wednesday's Institutional Council Meeting. Super Dee The possibility that the Dee Special Events Center will not be finished as scheduled was discussed extensively as several problems have arisen. The electrical subcontractor has gone bankrupt slowing down the internal progress. This has placed more strain on the main contractor who has the obligation of keeping on schedule. President Joseph Bishop said that ramifications have had a "multiplying effect on the whole program." Robert Folsom, director of campus planning, said "frankly I'm worried about it." Chairman Dale Browning said he did not see any reason why the center couldn't be completed on time especially since the weather has not been a problem. Joseph Breeze said "definite and fast action has to be done at this time before some serious things happen." Robert Heiner, a member of the council and also on-the Athletic committee, said "we have got to get some muscle into action" and show our concern. The council made and passed a motion unanimously to write a letter and have it hand delivered by President Bishop to the Building Board office to get their cooperation in putting pressure on the contractors and to suggest that a time table be made and followed. A condemnation suit may be enacted so that the college can purchase the Phillips property next to the center's site. The property is needed for parking space. President Bishop stressed that "we're trying our best to work with these people." Phillips attitude is changing a little and the case may be settled out of court if he will settle "close to the appraised value" of the property which is $103,100. Tech Ed Building The final inspection of the first floor in the Tech Ed building will be carried out before the end of January. The second floor will be inspected in the latter part of February. A motion was passed unanimously to open bids for the purchase of items needed to equip the building. Various projects The updating of the fire alarm system is 50 percent complete with 80 percent of the equipment already delivered. The Memorial Fountain is 95 percent complete with work suspended until spring. The west campus site is 98 percent complete and at a stand still because of weather. The Administration Building remodeling project is 80 percent complete and should be finished in two weeks. Bishop's House A motion authorizing the council to open bids for the destruction of Bishop's fire destroyed house was passed unanimously by the council. The reason being that the structure is dangerous and must be torn down before someone gets hurt. The neighbor children are playing there and also several vagrants have tried to move in. The council hopes that whoever takes the bid will tear down the house and keep the materials as their payment for doing so. Athletic Director The selection of Gary Crompton as Athletic Director was unanimously approved by the council. Donations For the month of December the college received gifts and grants totaling $33,652. The council was commended for staying so close to the budget.

|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.|
