C continues tier&Bist trainim The program for training respiratory therapists by the Weber State College School of Allied Health Sciences has been re-accredited for another five years, Dr. Reed M. Stringham, school dean, said Friday. The accreditation was made by the American Medical Association on medical education, Dean Stringham said. The respiratory therapists' program was initially accredited by the association in 1971. Theron Van Hooser, was associate director of the respiratory therapy program, said the AMA council offered several recommendations for improving the program. He said these were in the areas of physician's teaching time, in clinical training at the hospitals, and in the administration of the training program. Affiliated with the Weber State program are the Latter-day Saints Hospital, Primary Children's Hospital, McKay-Dee Hospital Center, St. Benedict's Hospital, University Hospital Medical Center. Also Cottonwood Hospital, Veterans Administration Hospital, Holy Cross Hospital and Logan LDS Hospital. Matlieson new Governor Utah voters elected Scott Matheson as Governor, Orrin Hatch as State Senator, and Dan Marriott as their new Representative in last Tuesday's election. Matheson, who defeated Vernon Romney, will replace Calvin Rampton in the state's capital. The Matheson victory showed that he won by 30,000 votes. Hatch, a newcomer to Utah politics, will replace incumbant Frank Moss in the U.S. Senate. In a very heated race, Hatch beat the 18 year incumbant by 40,000 votes. Dan Marriott defeated the scandel-prone Allan Howe by a convincing 45,000 vote margin. Marriott is also a newcomer to Utah politics. As expected, Gunn McKay was again victorious over his Republican opponent to return to the House for his fourth term. In the local scene, the Democrats won all but two local offices in Weber County politics. The county also became the first to elect a Black representative to the Utah Legislature. They also were the first to elect a Chicano. Rev. Robert Harris and John Ulibarri will represent the Third and Ninth Legislative Districts respectively. Ronald Sessions defeated Harrisville Mayor Tom Larsen in the two-year County Commission seat and Doug Hunt, a former assistant football coach at Weber State, beat Boyd Storey of Eden in the four-year County Commission seat. The only two Republicans winning local office in the county Tuesday were Rep. Ronald Halverson and former District Attorney Dale Stratford. Stratford defeated Rep. Dallas Buckway by 172 votes. In the presidential election, Weber County voted for President Gerald Ford, as did much of the State of Utah. President Ford, although losing the election, outpolled Jimmy Carter here by almost 2-1. Increase discussed today The Board of Regents will meet today in Salt Lake City to propose a "slight" tuition increase. According to Charles Peterson, chairman of the tuition increase committee, the committee has agreed to propose the increase in today's meeting. "There isn't anybody in favor of the tuition increase," said Peterson, "but the tuition hasn't kept up with the cost of living." Peterson went on to say that none of the college presidents are in favor of the raise but he said the committee will propose the increase regardless. Jeff Flamm, president of ASWSC, said that he is very much opposed to the increase. He said that if the increase was passed without student input that "all hell will break loose." Flamm said that he didn't know all of the facts quite yet but he added that the President's Council meeting held last night would bring him up to date. President Joseph Bishop said last week that he opposed the proposed increase. He added that every president in the system is against it. "It's clear that Weber is under-financed," the president said, but added that he is concerned that colleges would become a place for the elite. Peterson continually stated that the increase would be very minimal and the only purpose for it would be because of the cost of living increase.The meeting will be held in the Library at the U and will begin at 9 a.m. The public is invited to attend. i i $ r I I I a r7 Photo.

|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.|
