Now students will be able to satisfy this requirement by taking HEl01,HE102,orHEl03. Dr. Wallace Nalder, Health, Physical Education and Recreation department head, said there were two main reasons for the change. "The available material on the subject area simply prohibits adequate coverage of all the material in one course," he said, "and now students can optionally choose an area that is of interest or concern to them, regardless of their experience, age or status in school." Health Education 101 will cover the physical aspect of personal health problems. Topics of discussion will be mental and emotional health, organic efficiency, nutrition and weight control and life-saving techniques. Dr. Jay Hollingswor-th and Dr. Francis Bellnap will be possible instructors of the class. Health Education 102 will be taught by Dr. Hollingsworth or Mac Madsen. It will concentrate on the social aspect of personal health problems with discussion topics such as mental and emotional health, mind-altering substances, birth defects, cancer and communicable diseases. Dr. Jim Lochner will teach HE 103, which will concentrate on family. Topics to be covered include mental and emotional health, human sexuality, consumer information, ecological concerns and death and dying. Nalder said that textbooks have not been selected yet for each course. "Possibly there ASWSC President will 'reformulate ' government by Sandy Berkow Greg Garfield, ASWSC Student Body President, declares on Inside Todays Signpost Editorial pg. 4, 5 Clep Credits pg. 3 Sports pg. 9, 10, 11 Classifieds pg. n in 1 an could be three different texts," he stated. He said the course re-evaluation has nothing to do with the recent criticism of WSC's health textbooks. "After all what is pornographic to one may not be to another. Any textbook available on the market today might be objectionable to some individuals. We're talking about college age students here, to whom facts are more valuable than functioning in the dark." Nalder went on to say that some textbooks are of course more objectionable than others. "We have made every effort to select the right text on the basis of factual and current subject matter that is appropriate to college students in this community. We don't take the matter of book selection lightly, but spend several months evaluating every book on the market." "Honestly," he continued, "there are no health books currently available that don't deal with the reproductive system and human sexuality. We feel the book we use right now is the least offensive and not at all blatant." The course changes reflect the needs of WSC students. Nalder . said, "hopefully we are changing to meet the needs and interests of the current studentbody, yet still give them the necessary essentials to develop the quality of life they choose." Nalder noted that over the past three years about 200 people have challenged the health education class. About 65 per cent have successfully passed the test, but these are seldom entering freshman, he said. "Mostly these are students who work in related fields, or have raised families." Monday he would take a look at "reformulating" student government to meet the needs of the students. Garfield made the statement during the Executive Council meeting. He said I have been doing a lot of research into the bills passed by the Executive Council since 1972-73 and I am discovering many errors that have been made." A resolution correcting the mistakes in past resolutions will be presented at a future Executive Council meeting by Garfield. He is also preparing a policy book and will ask individual officers to write up a description of their job. Garfield said that after this policy book is completed they will look at the ASWSC Constitution and "although student government won't have to rediscover the wheel this year" they will determine whether it (the constitution) is functional or whether it might be necessary to rewrite it.

|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.|
