WEBER STATE COLLEGE HDLLrD I J n f i r h J OGDEN UTAH J) Volume 40 Issue 5 November 16, 1979 High court hears arguments The Utah Supreme Court will hear oral arguments concerning the salary issue today in Salt Lake City. Last year, former "Signpost" editor, John Redding, requested a list of all employees' names and individual salaries from the college administration. At that time, the Utah Records Committee had classified all state employees' salaries as "public information." The college refused to comply so the former editor filed suit and successfully won in Third District Court in Salt Lake City. The college then appealed the decision to the state supreme court. Also, during the last state legislative session in January, the board passed a law that requires all colleges and universities to release to the public only salary ranges and averages. However, all other persons working for the state must have their individual salaries open to the public, with the exception of employees working in higher education. The arguments will be presented by Redding's attorneys John Preston Creer and Kent Scott; and the college's, Assistant Attorney General Brinton Burbidge. The court will then rule on the appeal. Ombudsman get attorney Twenty minutes of free legal advise is now available to all students, faculty, and staff at WSC, according to Ombudsman Chris Anarado. "The attorney will receive funds through the Student "The first twenty minutes will be free for a college resident, but alter that time, the person must pay." The Ombudsman also said that if the attorney takes a case into court for a campus resident, that legal service. For more information, call Anarado at 626-6349, or contact the Ombudsman at his office located by the student association's offices in the Union Building. Association," said Anarado. person will receive a discount for rady requesting funds from board By Eunice Schlenker President Rodney Brady announced at Wednesday's Institutional Council meeting that WSC has more students than any other college in Utah, but with about only half the budget. Because of this, the president said he plans to appeal to the Board of Regents for an additional $359,400 to supplement the present budget. Presently, the student-faculty ratio at the college is 19.5, while the national average is 18. In order not to go beyond the already extended maximum, 15 new faculty members are needed to run an optimal operation, according to Brady. Highest Ratio He also pointed out that WSC has the highest student-faculty ratio rate statewide, and, if last year's standards were maintained in terms of student-faculty average, 32 additional faculty members would be needed. In asking the Utah Board of Regents for the monetary increase, Brady pointed out other options that include: letting the student-faculty ratio drop; placing enrollment ceiling on college (selective admissions). The present policy is an open enrollment, and a new policy would have to be implemented for that alternative. Increased Enrollment The total need to absorb this increased enrollment is $494,700 or which $135,300 was obsorbed by increased tuition costs, leaving the sum of $359,400 to be requested. Brady added, "We're willing to absorb the first five percent increase of the past two years ourselves." , Foreign Students Also discussed at the meeting concerned foreign students on campus.Dallas Buckway, a council member, asked Brady if "our taxes subsidize foreign students' tuition?" Brady said, "Yes, partially, however, they're docile. All (foreign students) have an appropriate visa and spend a lot of money in the community."

|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.|
