Convocation features Dimitri the Clown All children and all those who wish to remain children at heart must see Dimitri the Clown, said La Tribune de Geneve, a Brussels critic. Dimitri will present a show Thursday at 8 p.m. in the Val A. Browning Center Main Aduitorium. Scott Applonie, Cultural Affairs Vice-president of ASWSC, said he especially encourages married students to bring their children to this free convocation. He said Gov. says disclose Gov. Scott M. Matheson says he favors making salaries of state workers, including college professors and administrators, public. Speaking at a Weber Area Council of Governments meeting, he was asked for comment on a dispute that is headed for the courts. Signpost Editor John Redding filed suit against President Rodney Brady and members of the Records Committee for not releasing salaries which are classified by state law as public information. V Dimitri combines the talents of a virtuoso musician, circus clown, and classic mime. Dimitri has entertained audiences across Europe for 15 years. He won the Grock Prize, an international "Oscar" for circus comedians, in 1973. The show consists of acrobatic feajs, musical instrument presentation, and intricate juggling acts. Gov. Matheson said that in the past Weber State and other institutions of higher learning had kept professor's pay from public scrutiny. The reason for this, he said, was the claim that when colleges went looking for qualified deans and administrators in a highly competitive field, the confidential cloak around salaries would not cause problems within the inttitution's faculty if an outsider were picked and paid higher. Weber State College Ogden, Utah Advisor pushes for more handicapped student rights by Linda Ferguson Handicapped students deserve equal representation on planning, regulations, and traffic committees here on campus, La Mar "C" Kap said today. Kap, Coordinator of Services for the Handicapped, said that while the administration has been somewhat sympathic to the problems handicapped students have, especially with parking, other campus departments such as Campus Police and Building and Grounds are reluctant to provide the necessary assistance. "By law, of section 504 of the Rehibilitation act, the campus must provide adequate facilties for the handicapped students," Kap stated. Kap explained the situation of Sid Williams, a student paralyzed from the armpits down with limited use of his hands. "This student uses a van that is hydrolically operated. A pushbutton lift extends him out five feet beyond the size of a regular parking space," Kap said. He went on to state that a parking place 15 feet wide has been designed and implemented but the sign saying "wheelchair van only" will not be available ISA selects candidates by Eunice Sclenker Some 50 members of the International Student's Association (ISA) met Friday in the Union Skyroom to nominate candidates for the forthcoming election next Friday, Nov. 17. Advisor Tony Spanos was unable to attend, and since there wasn't a two-thirds majority there, President Jim Hajimomen said, "We want to procrastinate the voting -until we have more students and Tony Spanos present." Some students felt that the present house should be dissolved and the election done immediately.New Constitution Oscar Osuala, a Nigerian who had a copy of the new constitution, read article V, sec. 2, "New officers shall be elected each October. . . ," he added and the question is whether to dissolve this house or keep the incumbent officers in until they decide to relinquish it?" He questioned why students did not have a copy of the new constitution, '75-76. Pres. "Jim" explained, "I had some difficulty getting it from Justin, the former president, and jsut recently acquired it. Due to the pressures of soccer games for six weeks. Personnel at Building and Grounds told Kap that the sign must be sent away for to keep all signs on campus matching. "The problem is," Kap added, "campus officials are reluctant to make the handicapped parking places towaway zones for penalties. One day 2,000 tickets were issued; the revenue for this would be $5,000." Robert Ladd, Director of Auxiliary Services, said that he feels quite strongly about the enforcement of parking regulations for the handicapped. "It's one of our security people's primary duties. We really haven't had much problem though," he said. Ladd explained that they have been re-shuffling the stalls, creating additional stalls and relocating some. He said, "I would not be at all adverse to making the zones towaway but this would create many problems." "Most are not occupied all the time anyway," Ladd said, "so there is generally ample parking." Ladd also said spaces will be on a name basis for the vans soon. and organizations, I haven't had time to get copies made, but promise you a copy by next Friday." Must stay united . "Jim" maintained that they must stay united, but that American students are eligible to betong but not vote. Sheik Faruk, sec.-treas. said, "In order to dissolve a house, you must have a three-fourths majority, and there aren't enough members here today." Ultimately, they reached an agreement to accept nominations Inside Today's Signpost Editorials Pg. 4 Sports Pg. 10, 11, 12 Survey Pg. 2 Classifieds Pg. 11 November 14, 1978 J Kap said that President Brady continually states that the college is here to serve the student's needs. The appropriate committment to the handicapped sutdents just doesn't follow, he said. The biggest problem is that committee members just assume expertise; they don't ask, Kap said. The legislature forces them to make changes but gives them no money, so they complain, he continued. "Actually all they are doing is enforcing what colleges should have been doing all along," he maintained. Other examples of a lack of foresight, he explained are the dimming of the lights, especially in the Social Science Building. "Some of the blind students have some sight but this just turned the situation into pure hari-kari," Kap said. "Overall," Kap stated, "we're just asking for equal representation, on the planning and regulation boards and committees. They just tell us they have too many members already. We just want to make sure these kids are heard and have the same chance for education as everyone else." from the floor, and allow a week's interim for campaigning.

|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.|
