y Volume 37, Number 37 Weber State College March 9, 1977 R eferendum gets needed majority The referendum ballot to amend the ASWSC Constitution passed yesterday by a landslide. Although an official ballot count was not available at the time the Signpost went to press, Mike Hunsaker, Student Services Vice President, said that by preliminary countings, "it is sure to pass." The four item ballot needed only a simple majority to pass. Item one on the ballot changed Article two, section one to read "Administative Vice President, Cultural Vice President" to change the title of the Financial Vice President and Communications Vice President, respectfully.Item one also redefined and clarified the duties and responsibilities of the elected officials. It also made provisions for a prof essional business advisor. Item two changed the wording in Article four, section one to read "implement" instead of "put into operation." Item three provides for appointment of new ASWSC President or Vice President if they can not complete their term of office. Item six puts the results of the referendum into effect immediately after passage.

Chris Davis, communications V.P. and Dr. Robert Mikkelsen, dean of Humanities, met on Friday with members of the debate team to discuss funding. Debaters debate debate program In a meeting Friday afternoon with members of the debate team. Dp. Robert Mikkelsen assured team members that their scholarships would be continued and that if the debate program as a whole becomes productive it will also be continued. Dr. Mikkelsen explained that the small number of students in the debate program has caused problems for the department. He added that money which is going for debate now might be appropriated for a more productive purpose. Paul Skeen. a former WSC debater and community representative, told the gathering that he knew of people in the community who w ould not want to give any money to WSC if debate were discontinued. Members of the debate team asked Mikkelsen questions about their scholarships and about what the problems with the program are. Both Skeen and the debaters reminded Mikkelsen of how many people in government and in top business positions are former debaters. Mikkelsen said that the program will be continued if some community support is provided to pay for some of the instructional costs of the program. He said if after support is gathered, the program is still not productive, the school will have to re-evaluate the program.

|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.|
