Iwii.nr.-mud irn'rn nmmnil Volume 40 Issue 36 Salary release due soon, editor tapped By Guy Yocom A summary of gross wages paid to Weber State College employees will be released Monday, Dr. Rodney H. Brady, WSC President, said Wednesday. The report will include only salaries for the 1978 calendar year. Brady said this is because 1978 is the only year the Supreme Court ordered Weber State to release the salaries. Former Signpost editor John Redding will be charged $123.70 for the release of the salaries. They will be released to him first, Brady said. Subsequent disclosure of salary figures will charge others $52.10. The fee charge to Redding will cover the cost of programming the computer to give the information, according to Vice President for Administrative Services Parry Wilson. The first copy of the salary list will be released to Redding only after he has paid the required fee. The college said that they could have even charged more for the release of the first copy of the Form letter issued to all WSC students By Maggi Holmes Form letters sent to all registered WSC students have caused business at the Campus Police Office to increase. These letters informed students that pre-registration packets will be withheld from students with two or more outstanding citations. Students, bearing the letters, have come in to ask about them. Many of them contacted police even though they have received no citations. Many students have taken the letters to men that they have unpaid citations. "We have taken our share of criticism," said Lee Cassidy, campus police chief. Gregory stranded Dick Gregory, who was scheduled to speak at the Thursday convocation in the Fine Arts Building, was forced to land in Omaha, Nebraska because of bad weather and couldn't keep his date at Weber State. Cultural Vice-President Rex Leetham said that WSC is in the salaries. Van Neiswender, Utah Information Practices Act Administrator, said the school could charge Redding more for the information because the law is vague on the matter. "Weber State can legally charge whatever amount they want," he said. Faculty members' feelings on the release of the salaries range from "incensed" to "neutral". Brady said he and his advisors have decided not to make an appeal to the federal courts because he felt the Utah Supreme Court has appropriate jurisdiction. No word has yet reached Brady of any campus groups which may plan to appeal the ruling on their own initiative. Brady said that in taking the action he felt he was complying fully with the specifics of Utah Supreme Court ruling and with the "spirit" of the ruling. Categorical salary information has already been released and published in various- Utah newspapers. "The letters were sent to inform students of the campus process," Cassity said. "We did not think the letter was threatening," said Linda Meredith, police secretary. Meredith signed the letter and has received many contacts personally. The police office sent 10,106 letters and has been contacted by 400 or 500 students. Cassity said the letters were very effective in getting a large number of students to pay tickets. To prevent delay during pre-registration, all citations must have been cleared before Feb. 15. process of trying to negotiate a new date for Gregory to appear at Weber. Leetham said that he thinks Gregory was headed for St. Louis when the plane had to land because of snow and fog. Gregory is a social rights advocate and author.. Televisions, other ise in crime dramatic, WSC police chief says By Guy Yocom-Thefts and crime in general have risen alarmingly in recent months, and Campus Police Chief Lee Cassidy said dormitory students in particular should take a more active hand in reporting any suspicious activity. Seven television sets, valued at approximately $450 each, have seen stolen from Wasatch and Promontory Tower dormitories :his school year. One was eported stolen from Promontory yesterday morning, and another Has taken from Wasatch Wed- Police arrest student By Maggie Holmes WSC student Steve Goode was arrested for allegedly assaulting the Head Resident of Promitory Towers on Feb. 15. The Head Resident, Richard Russo, made a citizen's arrest in company of WSC police officer Dill Moody. Russo said he had been assaulted by Goode during an argument. He said he could not defend himself. Goode was detained by Russo in the housing director's office of Promitory Towers until Moody arrived. Moody reported that bad feelings had been building between Goode and Russo since Sept. 1979. Apparently the feelings were due to supposed false accusations made by Russo, Moody said. Goode admitted he assaulted Russo. He said he knew he would get into trouble for the assault before he did it. Moody talked to Russo about not pressing charges, but Russo insisted they be made. Moody said he transported Goode to Weber County Jail for booking and advised Russo to file a complaint at the County Attorney's office. Russo, a graduate of Xavier University, began, his tenure at Promontory Towers at the beginning of the 1979-80 school year. Goode is the former R.A. of the fourth floor at Promontory.

Some were :aken between last Thursday and Saturday, Cassidy said. Surprisingly, a lot of the thefts have occurred in the morning and mid-afternoon.Burglaries involving other items have been reported also. Money has been taken from rooms with frequency according to various students, and a camera valued at $150 was stolen from a room in Promontory yesterday morning Cassidy says students are reluctant to report thefts, particularly those involving items of relatively small value. "But they should be reported," Cassidy said. "Stolen money and other things can be traced if the student would just bother to contact us.

Crime is on the rise in dorms, says Chief Lee Cassity. Photo by Dave Barrett. 3 February 22, 1980 We can often get restitution." Five suspects are currently being investigated for the television thefts, although none have yet been arrested. The crime lab is presently trying to link the suspects with the television heists by analyzing fingerprints. None of the suspects are Weber State students, Cassidy said. Drug arrests have declined since seven persons were arrested last December, Cassidy said. Vandalism incidents vary in frequency. Difficulty in solving crimes arises from student apathy. "Nobody seems to see, hear or speak about the crimes," Cassidy said. Indifference on the part of the student doesn't help matters any." Furniture has also been taken from the dormitories on occasion.

|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.|
