College Considering Enrollment Limitation ill r . c A1 111 1 Ef5- v 'if. Challenge Prefers Sprite?! At least, that's the way it appeared when Signpost photographer Mike Smith snuck in behind the testers. Come on, Pepsi, what gives? WSC Debater Finalist for International Team WSC junior David Allen, a member of the debate team, is one of eight finalists being considered for a position on the United States International Debate Team. Allen travels to Chicago May 21-23 for the final screening process for the team which will be conducted by the Committee on International Discussion and Debate of the Speech Communication Association of America. - If selected for the prestigious two-man team, Allen would spend two months early next year in Great Britain debating students from such universities as Oxford and Cambridge. Allen's reaction at being selected as a finalist was one of excitement, "Very much so, not only to travel but to meet people under these circumstances," he said. Allen also said he's excited at the prospects of "meeting college students in their own country and being able to share divergent viewpoints." Going to England is exciting to Allen because it is, as he said, "the home of academic debate as we know it today and the home of one of the oldest debates in the world." Debate coach Prof. Randy Scott praised Allen's efforts for the debate team this year and added "This is a great honor for David and for Weber State College. I'm very proud of his accomplishment and pleased with the prestige it brings to our debate team and to Weber State College." Allen's specialties this year have been debate, extemporaneous and impromptu speaking. He won the District IX title in the category of impromptu speaking, and went to the National Individual Events Tournament held in Baltimore, Md. for both impromptu and extemporaneous speaking.

Player Goes Pro 7 Oscar Wilde Unclassifieds 8 Enrollment limitations being considered by the college administration will put increased pressure on students to make admissions deadlines and maintain high grades, or else they won't be able to continue their education at Weber State. Academic Vice President Robert B. Smith says enrollment limitations are necessary to control growth at the school, because "We just can't go on raising our full-time equivalent student body with a decline in real dollars." Academic probation policies, stricter enforcement of disciplinary codes, higher grading standards, and firm admission deadlines are a few of the measures that will be instituted to meet the goal of limiting enrollment. Proposals have been presented to faculty to get their reactions, as Smith promised to let them know first-hand whatever proposals were being considered, rather than having the faculty learn of changes through second-hand sources such as the newspaper. The administration is also asking the faculty for any ideas they might have concerning limitations. Among the suggestions being considered to raise academic standards are a revision of the academic suspension policy, limitations on the number of times a student may fail a class and repeat it, and raising requirements for entering upper division classes. The college last week initiated changes in registration policies that are aimed at limiting enrollment. These changes would institute a charge for course change cards and place a higher late fee on students who haven't registered for classes on time. These and other changes would improve the flow of information to the deans and professors, as well as provide students with the incentive to register early for only the classes they seriously want to take.

|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.|
