Volume 39 Number 53 Weber State College Ogden, Utah May 15, 1979) 'Take your shorts offor leave the games area ' by Beverly DeVoy Students wearing shorts or cutoffs are not permitted in the games area of the Union Building, said director Tom Kiernan. Kiernan said he is only following the Weber State College dress code that was published in 1965, that states, "short-shorts or any other skimpy attire are not permitted." The director said he has asked his employees not to let any student in that is not dressed appropriately, and he added he has even made one of his employees go home and change his clothes because he was wearing shorts. A parent complained to studentbody president Greg Garfield when her son was not allowed to go into the games area because of his attire. She said the studentbody president told her there was nothing he could do. Grade change policy for transcripts goes into effect By Leslie Ann Hansen Policy for grade changes on transcripts has been changed said Neal Berube at an ASWSC Council meeting. Previous policy consisted of a slash mark being made through a grade and the correct grade put to the side. Working together, Dean Mecham and Neal Berube created this policy. When a grade is changed as a result of an error by a professor or the computer system, the wrong grade is erased completely and new one is Tuition-fees risehigher New tuition and fee rates for the 1979-80 school year will be approved by the WSC Institutional Council tomorrow, according to information released by administrative officials.Information released from the controller's office, however, indicates prior, assured approval of the increase. In a letter from T. Homer Johnton, WSC cashier, tuition and fee increases are already delineated. The meeting will be held at 9 a.m. in the Miller Administration Garfield said he went over to the- bowling alley after the parent complained, and saw a sign on the wall that stated, "shirts and shoes required at all times in the games area. No cutoffs or t-shirts." "There's nothing I could do," he noted. "I didn't set the policy." However, Garfield is chairman of the Union Board Policy Committee. The U.B. policy states, "appropriate campus attire is expected; shoes will be worn in the Union." When this was brought to Garfield's attention, he said there would be a U.B. committee meeting sometime this week, and the board could define what "appropriate campus attire" is if a student complained. Dean of Student Affairs Kay Evans said the manager of the games area had the right to interpret "appropriate campus put in its place. This makes it impossible to distinguish that there was ever a change in grade. This new policy however is exempt from incompletes. Reasoning behind this policy changed, according to Berube, is that some students are concerned because the previous grade changes could give a future employer the idea that the student had made some type of compromise with the professor in order to get the grade change, Building. Also on the agenda will be proposed room and board rate hikes. The tuition and fee schedule, proposed by thee State Board of Regents, will go into effect summer quarter and is listed in the already-released summer schedule. Full-time residents fees will be $196. For every credit hour over 20, a fee of $13.50 will be assessed. Non-resident fees will no be charged during the summer. Fall quarter, non-resident fees for 10-20 credit hours will be $466. attire" to mean no cut-offs or shorts. She said the policy board would have to get together and specifically define what is proper and what is not proper clothing in the Union Building. Union Director Ferral Shepard said, "No one has ever said it was not appropriate to wear shorts in the building." He added the bowling alley dress code does not apply to the whole U.B., and students can wear shorts in other areas. Kiernan said he has also told bowling instructors not to let any student in their classes if they are wearing shorts or cut-offs. He added that women were permitted in the games area without a bra. "As long as they have shirts on that doesn't have a low front, they can come in," he said. "But if it's too obvious, (not wearing a bra) and it's causing an attraction, I'll have to ask them to leave." when the error was not with the student. Berube also stated that the new policy simply creates a neater looking transcript. This new policy went into effect during winter quarter and is essential to the WSC students as 500-700 grade changes are made each quarter.

|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.|
