LhJsu For 93rd Commencement College Selects Honorary Degree Recipients Leaders in government, banking and communications will receive honorary doctoral degrees at the 93rd annual commencement exercises to be held June 5. The three people selected by the WSC Institutional Council are Elliot L. Richardson, Mrs. Wilda Gene Glasmann Hatch and George Stoddard Eccles. They were selected in a brief special meeting of the council Wednesday morning. In addition to getting an honorary degree, Richardson will deliver the commencement address. Elliot L. Richardson Elliot L. Richardson, a recent speaker at WSC, has distinguished himself on all levels of government. On the state level, he served as Attorney-General and Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts. Among his many national positions were Secretary of HEW, Secretary of Defense, , Secretary of Commerce and Attorney General of the United States. It was during his time as Attorney General that Richardson received his greatest attention. He chose to resign as a matter of conscience rather than fire Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox. Wilda Hatch Wilda Gene Glasmann Hatch has successfully combined a career as a newspaper executive with a personal interest in the Utah environment. The Ogden native is president of the Standard Corporation, a media conglomerate that controls the Ogden Standard-Examiner and KUTV, Channel 2 as well as several other newspapers, television and radio stations. Hatch has served in many environmental causes such as lobbying to set aside land in Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Monument. She is currently serving as treasurer on the board of the Utah Environment Center. George S. Eccles George Stoddard Eccles serves as chairman and chief executive officer of the First Security Corporation, a financial concern he helped found in 1928. Eccles became involved in international finance after World War II when he served as a consultant to the Marshall Plan reconstruction of Europe. He later served as chairman of the 11th International Monetary Conference in Vienna. Eccles has served as president and director of the Ogden Livestock Show and is a member of the Utah Symphony Board. I ? '.If 1 I I if II ' i; " f 1 I i 4 ' 1 I 1 y ' " - j ' ' I ' Jr : I JH 1 V;V !

Children who are three or four years old before Oct. 31 are eligible. Applications will be open until March 31. The Children's School offers an early childhood education program in which development is fostered through active, self-initiated involvement with the social and physical environment, Bird said. Approximately 30 children will be selected for the school by means of a lottery. All applications will be entered in the random drawing. Parents of those children selected must register for a two credit hour class entitled "Learning With Your Child." The course is a varied and flexible program which allows parents and schools to interact cooperatively in meeting mutual goals for children's education. Applications are available at the Children's School in the Education Building, room 107, daily from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Additional information may be obtained by calling Bird or Jane Steward at 626-6277 during the above hours. ASWSC Posts Election Elections for 1981-82 student body officers are going to be held the first two weeks of April, according to ASWSC public relations vice-president Faye Hardy. Election petitions to get your name on the ballot are available in the Student Activity Center of the Union Building. The positions open are for ASWSC President and six Vice-Presidential slots: Executive VP; Academic VP; Activities VP; Cultural VP; Public Relations VP; and Student Services VP. Elections are also being held for the Academic Senate where seven offices are open, one for each school in the college.Primary elections are scheduled for April 8&9 and final elections are April 15&16. $49,000 Stock Donation Given by Call Weber State has once again been made the beneficiary of an valuable donation. Mr. and Mrs. O. Jay Call of Brigham City have donated stock valued at $49,500, according to Dean W. Hurst, vice-president for college development. The stock is in the Flying J Oil company, of which Call is the president. Arrangements for the gift were made last December. This is the second gift given to the school by the Calls and Flying J. In November of 1979, real estate with a value of more than $40,000 was donated. Appreciation for the gift was expressed by college president Rodney Brady, saying it "will be used to greatly strengthen the new Presidential Distinguished Professor program at WSC." It can in this way be used to build leadership in the faculty from which the students will in turn benefit from improvements in instructional quality, said Brady. Proceeds from the sale of the stock will initially be applied to the Distinguished Professor program which was launched last year, according to Hurst. It may also be used in other directions as indicated by the wishes of the donors. The school will now be able to increase the number of Distinguished Professor awards which will be presented each year. Two awards were given out last year, to Dr. Daniel T. Gallego of the Sociology Department and to Dr. Spencer L. Seager, professor and chairman of the Chemistry Department. The program now provides that each person chosen as a Distinguished Professor gets $2,000 and his department $1,000. Choices are made through the use of a screening committee which makes preliminary selections. Final choice is in the hands of president Brady. The Flying J corporation has grown from a modest start of two service stations in Brigham City to a m-ulti-million dollar corporation operating in seven states.

|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.|
