Logan paper will request Volume 39 Number 2 October 3, 1978 Mi v-v : -wm X ' ' i ... """" . ' Photo by Ron Bevan STACKED DISHES are a typical scene in the P.T. cafeteria. Dirty dishes on the rise I fix by Beverly Taggart Staff Reporter Bud Huchel, food service manager for the dorm cafeteria, and Ray Wiggins, maintenance supervisor for the college, are at odds on who is to blame for the cafeteria's faulty equipment. Recently, students have complained about poor service, glass and silverware shortages, lines that are too long and slow, cold food not enough time to eat, and it's too hot in the dining area. Huchel said the students' complaints were justifiable, but, "my staff is doing the best they can with what they have to work with. "He noted that "it was the college's responsibility to maintain the equipment in the kitchen." However, Wiggins said that he tries to keep the equipment up but the kitchen staff breaks the equipment as soon as repairs are made. According to Huchel, the reason serivce is slow is because only part of the grill works, the conveyor belt is broke which leads to the dishwasher causing shortages, and water on the floor requires his staff to move around slowly, moreover, the employees must work in 100 degree temperature. Wiggins said the reason only part of the grill worked was because the kitchen staff "worked the grill into the wall." "I hate to throw the blame," he continued "but they don't know what they're doing. They break Time management classes offered atWSC "Time Management," designed to demonstrate how individuals can expand their ability to get things done, is one of several workshops to be offered soon by the Continuing Education Division of Weber State College. Others will be on advanced management and supervisory training, said Jay Bachman, director of short courses and conferences. This seminar is designed to show enrollees how to get better performance from employees, lower labor costs, increase productivity, reduce personal turnover, etc. Six or more faculty members will address the sessions,, Mr. Bachman said. First sessions of "Advanced Management Seminar," will be held Sept. 22 and 23 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the WSC Union Building, Room 417. Fee is $265, plus $15 for one hour credit in business administration 492-94.A second session is slated for Oct. 13 and 14 in the the switches as fast as them." Wiggins said that the reason there was water on the kitchen floor was the staff kept dropping ice and then wouldn't mop it up. He also noted that the reason it was so hot was because the boiler room was downstairs from the kitchen and the air compressor had tripped off. "The problem with the conveyor belt being broke so long was we couldn't find a part to replace," Wiggins said. "I have the part now and I will repair it as soon as I can. Hopefully today." Wiggins also said that the conveyor belt broke because something got stuck inside and the food service didn't take it out, so it was their fault it broke. Huchel said that he has a good staff this year but they are new and it will take awhile for them too break in. Hutchel noted that he and his staff are doing the best they can and are trying to give the students the best service possible.

Cheney said the reason he requested the information was due to the fact that the Board of Regents would not release the salaries to the Signpost and Associated Press. Cheney noted it was a matter of principle. "I think it's a legitimate request," he said. "It should be available to the public because the public is funding these institutions." Bill Wertz, Bureau Chief for the Associated Press in Salt Lake City, was denied salary information last month from the Regents. The AP Chief said he wanted the information to find out how much university and college employees, made for purposes of comparison with salaries in other states. Also, the college chapter of the Utah Association of Academic Professionals has requested salary information in order to do a comprehensive salary study on faculty members. Last March, the Signpost requested a list of names and salaries of persons employed at Weber State College but have so far been denied access to the information. In June, 1977, the Utah State Records Committee classified all state employee's salaries as "public" information. Weber State College has refused to comply with the law in releasing that information to the public. An "informal" attorney general's opinion was issued last August advising the college not to release salary information. ' However, according to the attorney general's office, the opinion is not legally binding in a court of law. Assistant Attorney General Tom Anderson said that if the college released the information, the school would not be criminally prosecuted, but, an employee could bring a civil suit against the college.

|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.|
