I 1 I llhlAk. - I. 1 L m W JESUS 'Pau', pipefitter turned religious crusader, provoked religious mayhem with his calls for repentence and his attacks on all religious denominations, Tuesday at Weber State College. Billboard Religion Excites Students A man bearing a sign saying "BEWARE FALSE TEACHERS" appeared on campus Tuesday, exciting crowds outside the Union Building with shouts of "The Mormons are deceived" and "Mohammed was a liar". The man, identified only as 'Paul', claimed all religions are false, but the Mormons are the most deceived with the "Utah hoax". This greatly incensed a crowd of LDS students, who answered with yelling, insults and heckling. 'Paul' then went on to insult a group of Moslem students with charges that "Mohammed was a liar, and either Mohammed was false in his teachings or I am." "All churches are wrong," the man shouted, "We must form one non-denominational church that gets its truth from the Bible. The Bible is Gods 1 f ?S p r' . mmJi oniy word to man." The man who works as a pipefitter, says he receives no money for his efforts. "My main motivation is the truth of what I say, with respect to the rewards that come with Christian service. I have been saved, I want to do the same for others.'' "When I came here," he said, "I knew that I would have to tell people they were wrong and call them liars. I knew this would anger them. But I have to tell them these things-I have to be here. So yes, I came here purposely to anger people." At one time, several campus police pulled up and ordered him to put his sign down. When 'Paul' asked what the problem was, Chief Cassidy said "No problem", the officers left and 'Paul' went on with his message. Monitor Is A Life saver A way to eliminate Sudden Infant Death Syndrome may be available as early as this spring. According to Dr. Johnston and his associates, Dr. Dixon and Prof. Andrews of the Electronics Department, a computerized home monitoring unit should be available for marketing in late spring of this year. SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, claimed over ten thousand lives in 1979 and is the single largest killer of children less than one year of age. It is an unusual phenomenon that occurs in infants between 0 and 8 months of age. It is believed that the infants fall into such a deep sleep that their heart and respiration rates drop to a fatal level and the children die. Dr. Johnston offered more background into SIDS. "The child's brain stem cannot differentiate oxygen and carbon dioxide levels the way adults can, it's a developmental problem and usually disappears at about eight months. The probability of a fatality is aggravated by stress condi- .0 X '1 40p 4t& dito. f&fo joe Meeks, with the wind at his 'back and the spray in his face, utilizes the latest in umbrellas as he traverses campus during the recent rash of stormy weather. iPhoto by Charlie Pomerleau tions such as colds and flu." He also noted that the occurence of incidents is higher in new families with young parents. "Oddly enough, people think that premature infants succumb more often than normal children, actually the heart and respirations of premies are higher and faster than normal infants," added Johnston. The monitor provides a digital read-out of heart rate and respiration. According to Dr. A. Steinsnieder, a leading authority on SIDS, "children can be aroused from a deep sleep to a normal sleep enough to bring the heart and respiration rates up to a safe level." The monitor would measure these things with a danger level or rate programmed right into it, when the levels reach the danger zone a number of things could happen; a breeze of cool air may be projected across the child's abdomen, a system of lights and beepers could be triggered, or a very mild electrical shock could be 4& Aim, Am&u administered. If these forms of arousal didn't work, the parents would be alerted and they could take resuscitative measures. Dr. Marie Dapenas, another respected authority in SIDS research, stated in Pediatrics Magazine that, "Reliable and economical Infant Monitoring Systems are not only possible but they are long overdue." Dr. Johnston agreed with her and proceeded to develop such a monitor. It can also be used to monitor patients of any age who are well enough to return to their homes but still need some monitoring 'just in case'. Right now the monitor must receive FDA approval. So far the respiration monitor has passed inspections. The next step is to approve the cardiac unit and the respiratory unit together. They are tested at the University of Utah and the fees required to test them as well as the money for all the research that has been done was from private sponsors and grants from WSC.

|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.|
