S- 1 Volume 37 Number 27 Weber State College Feb. 1, 1977 ASWSC backs student housing Murray Olsen, Financial Vice President of ASWSC, announced yesterday that the Executive Council is trying to pressure Administration into making Married Student Housing a tap priority . Olsen said that he researched the housing problems last year and found that Weber 's enrollment is made up of 47 percent married students. But Olsen said that Weber has no housing for them. At the University of Utah, 21 percent of the undergraduate students are married. According to Olsen, the University can house 21 percent of the married students. USU have 12 percent of the students married and have enough room to house 39 percent of those. Olsen said that BYU can house 12 percent of their 4,300 married students . Olsen added that the 10 year master plan is based on land that the college doesn't own. The land the college wants for housing is the land between the campus and the Special Events Center. According to Olsen, there are 2 bills in the legislature for the college to purchase the land. W Jene Smith, Chairperson of the Student Needs Committee, said, "I'm delighted with the official recognition of the problem by ASWSC." Smith feels that family housing is very important to people. "We're penalizing students with families because of the additional strain. They are forced into high rent districts without the financial support that singles have." Smith added that there will be a meeting of students interested in helping out with the problem on Feb. 5 in room 370 of the Union Building. The meeting will begin at8a.m. Position available Dr. Gordon Allred, Chairman of the Media Board, announced that applications forEditor-in-Chief of the Signpost are available at the student government offices.

|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.|
