The student turnout is approximately eight percent of the total studentbody, a higher percentage than last years final elections, according to Doug Harris, ASWSC press secretary. ASWSC's goal is a fifteen percent turnout for next weeks final elections on Tuesday and Wednesday. Harris credited the higher turnout to one and two vote ballots, especially for candidates Beard and Donahue. The closest race was between the presidential candidates, as 49 votes separated Arave from Stiltner who had 52 more votes than runner-up Donahue. A speak-out will be held Monday at noon in the Union Building Little Theatre involving all the final election candidates. All students are invited. President Services V.P.

Primary winners will address the issues in a speak-out Monday at noon in the Little Theater. WSC asks state aid for buildings Weber State College needs tnree new buildings to handle the tremendous influx of students expected in the next few years, WSC officials told members of the Utah Building Board and the State Board of Regents. Proposed buildings are needed to relieve overcrowding in the School of Business and Economics, the School of Allied Health Sciences and in the physical education facilities. Kim Wheatley, Director of Planning and Systems Development, said WSC has the smallest amount of space per student of all the Utah institutions. Members of the building board and the regents visited WSC to view these conditions Wednesday. WSC President Rodney H. Brady told the representatives that the college could handle twice as many students if they had the new buildings. WSC administration said their first priority was the business building. It was moved to top priority by the Institutional Council early this month. The estimated cost for that building is $5.8 million. The estimated cost for that building is $5.8 million. More than half of that amount is now available. The request for funding has been filed with the regents and the building board for several years but it has never been appropriated. It is now seventh on a list of eight priority items before the boards. The construction cost of the others may be $23 million. The plans for the business building have been scaled down because of the tight fiscal situation, said Dr. Sterling Sessions, dean of WSC. The second WSC priority is the allied health sciences building. It is estimated to cost $6.58 million. The physical education "Field House" facility is third priority. Brady said enrollment at WSC could double in the 10 next years, but if the current rate continues it may only take six and one-half years. Council approves graduation choices WSC will be awarding several honorary doctorate degrees to three notable business, music and community affair leaders, on June 6, during its commencement ceremonies, the Institution council announced Wednesday. Those being honored with the degrees are: Maurice Abravanel, former conductor of the Utah Symphony Orchestra; Thomas D. Dee II, a well known Ogden businessman, banker, and humanitarian; and Phyllis B. Marriot, a former Ogden resident, who is an eminent civic leader in Washington D.C. Mrs. Marriot, in connection with receiving the honorary degree, will also be giving the commencement address at WSC's 1980 graduation ceremonies. Mrs. Marriott will be the first woman ever to deliver the graduation address at a WSC commencement. A former graduate of Weber State College and the University of Utah, Mrs. Marriot has been active in community affairs in the Washington D.C. area. She has been affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, and has served on the executive board for that organization. In 1974-75 she was elected National American Mother of the Year. She has also been national president of the American Mothers Committee Inc. for two years. The council also approved memorialization of four past presidents of the college and three former faculty members. The first to be memorialized will be Louis F. Moench, founder and first principal. The walkway running east and west between the Stewart Bell Tower and the Miller Administration Building will be named "The Louis F. Moench Hall." Dean Hurst, assistant to WSC President Dr. Rodney II. Brady, said the niemorializations will take place individually during the next year at appropriate dates." Fate of Iranians uncertain In the wake of President Carter's decision to cut diplomatic ties with Iran, some of WSC's more than 170 Iranian students say that expect that they will all have to leave soon. But Foreign Students Advisor Tony Spanos said after meeting with immigration officials Wednesday that nothing seems certain yet. "The immigration officials are in the dark too; they don't appear to know anything more than we do," Spanos said. "The Iranians may be overreacting." Informal meetings, apparently aimed at establishing unity among the Iranians have been held in the past few days. International Students Association President Jim Hajimamen, an Iranian emphasized that all Iranians r.hould stand behind their government's decisions and not aggravate the tensions between Americans and Iranians by openly publicizing their personal views. Several of the Iranians criticized Hassan Ghaibi for presenting his views on KUTV Channel 2 News Tuesday evening. "We have many problems here already . . . what Hassan says can only hurt us more," said Hajimamen. One student said Hassen will be forced to return to Iran.

|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.|
