Tuition Hike discussed The Weber State College Institutional Council approved a series of recommendations to the Board of Regents concerning tuition increases.In the Wednesday meeting, the Council passed a three point analysis concerning the hike. They are as follows: 1) If at all possible, tuition not be increased at the present time. 2) Should the Regents find it necessary to increase tuition, we would recommend that a $17 per quarter increase be reduced to $9 per quarter with a review to take place immediately following the appropriations to the institutions by the Legislature to determine whether an additional $8 would be necessary. 3) If the Regents feel they must recommend a $17 increase per quarter per student, they consider it to be an average increase per full-time student and allow the colleges the opportunity for further research and analysis as to the best way to implement that increase with the results of that analysis to be made to the Regents in February for their approval. According to the report, tuition would be raised $51 per year for resident students and $127.50 for non-residents. "Non-resident tuition is of less concern to our institution than resident tuition since we have relatively few non-resident students (approximately 450). We do support a 2.51 ratio of non-resident tuition to resident tuition," was included in the report. The next Board of Regents meeting will be November 22 and 23 in the Marriott Library at the University of Utah. In other business at the meeting, the council passed a motion prohibiting the admittance of the press to committee meetings before the regular Council meets. Harold Steed made the recommendation after his committee decided that since there was no business action in the meetings that the press need not be present. The press is still invited to attend the regular Council meetings. Jeff Flamm, ASWSC president, reported that the roof will be up at the Dee Events Center before Thanksgiving. He did add that the final color coat of paint will not be added until next spring. Flamm also said the Events Center is 76 percent completed. Flamm also announced that the new retention pond is 98 percent complete and should be done shortly. He said that the new Tech Ed building will be done for next year and the move into the new building will begin at the beginning of summer quarter.

Students who do not register during the early registration may register Monday, Jan. 3, in the Union Building ballroom. No changes will be made to any student's original selection of classes if fees have been paid or unless fees are being paid at the time the change is made. Students are encouraged not to miss class instruction for the purpose of picking up registration packets. Sophomore, junior and senior students should not experience the "closed class" problem in their efforts to obtain course cards during the early registration and should be able to arrange their registration without missing classes. Students are reminded that some classes require instructor approval in order to obtain a course card. In such cases, as identified in the class schedule by a plus sign ( ) by the instructor's name, the student should secure the instructor's signature or department stamp on the Course Request Card of the packet. Students are also urged to check the addendum before registering. -4 - V tyc ' ?f li 'A '; . - " " "-i . " " --Jf is.'.ir 'item . ;---' , J? 1 mmmm,A . JL V Photo. Oyd Muelltf WILL TUITION GO UP?

Volume 37, No. 15 Weber State College Editorial controversy A meeting of the Media Board last Tuesday discussed a controversial editorial run in last Friday's Signpost. The editorial, written by Dean Christensen, criticized the Weber State College administration. The editorial charged that the "academic standards of the college have become stagnated." Members of the media board argued that Christensen did not substantiate his editorial. Dr. Gordon Allred, chairman of the board, said that the media board has the authority as publisher and no student has total freedom over editorial content. LeeAnn Williams, editor of the Signpost, said that she reviewed the editorial before it was printed and decided that it was not libelous and that Christensen had the right to express his opinion. Dean Larry Evans, board member, said that the editorial could be libelous and Flora Ogan, city editor of the Standard Examiner, read a critique of the Signpost editorial written by Murray Moler, Associate Editor of the Examiner. Moler wrote that the editorial was an "abortion" and should not have run in the paper. Ogan said that on any paper the editorial page belongs to the publisher and that Moler would go directly to his publisher for approval before he would write an editorial which relied on opinion in a controversy. Christensen's attorney, Richard Richards, and Executive Director of the American Civil Liberty Union, Sam Herscovich, both said that the editorial did not contain any libelous material. Allred said any action taken by the media board would be decided at the next meeting. The meeting will be held next Tuesday in room 235 of the Social Science Building. It will begin at 3:15 p.m. r ' .-".. '; ; ) r - if M : rri pur Photo by Oyde Mueller EDITORIAL CONTROVERSY.

|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.|
