WSC golf champs win conference by Lynn Arave Sports Editor Weber State captured its seventh consecutive Big Sky Conference Golf Championship last Tuesday at Spokane, Washington with a 76 stroke win over runnerup Gonzaga. The team scores were: 1) Weber State 1,095 ; 2) Gonzaga 1,171; 3) Montana 1,184; 4) Idaho State 1,186; 5) Boise State 1,190; and 6) Idaho 1,192. Northern Arizona and Montana State do not field golf teams. Six of the top seven individual golfers, including the first five were Wildcats. Mike Borich won the conference medalist crown by shooting a two under par 214 over the 54 holes. It was Borich's third consecutive time this year of being the top Wildcat finisher. Mike Gove and Vance Christiansen tied for the runnerup spot with two over par 218's each. Fourth was Weber's Joe L. Higham at 223, followed by teammate Matt Cole who shot a 224. Montana's Pat Monsmith claimed the sixth slot with 227 and Wildcat John G Grahman was seventh overall at 229. Weber State has now won every conference golf title dating back to 1970. No official conference golf championships were held during 1975 and 1976, but the 'Cats easily won the unofficial conference tournament even then. Weber State Coach Mac Madsen, WSC's longest serving coach (at 12 years) has been honored as the Big Sky's Golf Coach of the year on six straight occasions and Weber's victory this year will likely earn him that honor for the seventh straight time. The Weber Golf Team's next Big competition is the NCAA Golf Championships to be held in early June at Eugene, Oregon. Weber's golf win now puts the Wildcats in a commanding position for the All-sports Trophy. If WSC can finish ahead of Boise State in tennis, despite the outcome in track and field Weber will win its first all-sports trophy title since 1970 this season.

Safer, who has been assigned to a story in the Arizona desert, called Ray Wight of the W SC news department at 8 a.m. yesterday, informing him of the change in plans. The speaker contract provides for cancellation, however it is customary to inform the college a few days in advance. 1978 WEBER STATE GOLF TEAM and Big Sky Champions.

Tech ed building to be dedicated Leaders in business, industry, education and public life are expected to attend the dedication of the new Engineering Technology Building this morning at Weber State College. Activities start with tours for special guests at 10 a.m., then move to the dedication ceremony at 10:30 a.m., followed by an open house for the general public. Speakers at the dedication rites in the UB include Dr. Joseph L. Bishop, WSC president; Dale Browning, chairman of the WSC Institutional Council; Elroy Nelson, commissioner, Utah State Building Board; Mike Hunsaker, ASWSC president; and Dr. T. H. Bell, commissioner of Higher Education. The dedicatory prayer will be by Dr. Wendell Esplin, former dean of the School of Technology. Provision for parking has been made for guests of the college in parking lot C-2, located up the hill and directly behind the Technical Education Building, said Chief of Security Lee Cassity. "We will have our officers stationed on campus to assist anyone who needs help in finding parking," he added. "In addition signs will be posted along the peripheral road." It was designed especially to provide classrooms and laboratories plus clusters or areas where students and faculty can get together for relaxation or the discussion of problems. Laboratories and work areas have been designed to come as close as possible to industry settings and the equipment is not the "normal" school shop variety, but of industrial size and capacity. Placement of technology graduates has been excellent, many going to smaller area or state companies and others on to large corporations such as Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, IBM and Texas Instruments. Courses in a variety of skills are offered ranging from one year to four-year degree programs. The school has one of the finest computer-aided design systems available in any educational institution of the country. The computer equipment provides hands-on training from the drafting program on through. It is in service on school days from 7 a.m. until after evening school classes conclude. Faculty members call the building a long-term dream for a school which had outgrown the old Technical Building and had actually become a split-campus setup, with part of the instruction being carried on in shops on Stephens Ave. The large new building already has only one small shop which is not in use. The old building will be remodeled to a considerable extent and a large new bay added on the north side to facilitate instruction in diesel equipment.

|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.|
