Council Approves '81 Fee Increase by Mike Tupa The Institutional Council approved increases in student fees for the 1981-82 school year in their monthly meeting held April 8. Among the services scheduled to cost more are dormitory housing, student activity fees and parking. Other items discussed by the council concerned food services, personnel hiring, bank services, and approval for the second phase of the proposed Business Building. Inflation was cited by the WSC administration as the major cause of the housing increase. Students in the dorms will be paying an additional 15 percent next year. That means the cost will go from $1700 to $1940. Council members also voted a $4 per quarter increase in student activity fees to begin fall quarter. This means the fee will go from $51 to $55 Der auarter. Athletics will benefit most from the increase with a $2 raise, going from $10.17 to $12.17 per student. Instructional related activities gain the next largest amount of money as each student will now pay $3 per quarter, up from $1.75. Health care will now get an additional dollar for a total of $3 per student, and Union expense will go up fifty cents to $5. Two areas of the budget will receive less money next year than this. Student activities will go down from $5 to $4.50 and convocations will go down to $1 from the current $1.25. The building allotment will remain at $26.33 per student. After absorbing a 100 per cent increase in parking fees last year, decal-buyers will face another 6.7 per cent increase this year. This means the current $30 "A" sticker will be $32 and "B" will be $16 instead of $15. "C" and dorm stickers will remain at $4. Cont. on pg. 2.

Ralph Waldo Emerson Van Dyke Former WSC financial aids director William Van Dyke both won and lost his $1.5 million libel suit against Salt Lake City television station KUTV in Second District Court last week. Van Dyke proved the station had broadcast at least one falsehood in a news story aired Feb. 5, 1980, but in the opinion of the jury failed to prove malice on the part of KUTV. Van Dyke was found to be a public figure in his position of financial aids director at the college, and to prove libel he had to prove malice. Van Dyke filed the suit after KUTV had broadcast a story accusing him of sexually harassing financial aids applicants. The station had mis-edited an interview with a woman, making the woman's second-hand story sound like first-hand testimony. This is where the jury unanimously found that KUTV had erred.

He was taken to the hospital but released later in the day. (photo by Jeff Stronk) The jury was split on whether KUTV had acted with malice, with the final verdict being 6-2 in favor of the television station. Testimony for the defense in the case consisted of nine women who claimed Van Dyke had harassed them either physically, verbally, or both. Defense counsel Dale Lambert also brought up a federal report that cited Van Dyke for harassment and the fact that he had been fired from his college job "for cause" following an investigation by the college.Both sides claimed victory in the lengthy trial. Van Dyke said his case was a message to the media to have their news straight before broadcasting it. Defense counsel cited the fact that damages hadn't been awarded and claimed this as a victory. Van Dyke said an appeal is being considered but is unlikely. Library Posts Holiday Hours The library has announced their schedule for the upcoming Good Friday holiday break.

|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.|
