When they lost the next week to the University of Idaho Representative ' Joe E.

Whitesides also introduced HB 17 which gave WSC more than a 300 percent increase tin out of state scholarships, from 30 to 135. The bill also gave the University of Utah an increase from 100 to 190, and Utah State from 100 to 165. Thebudget for Weber JState proposed by Governor Scott Matheson of $24,189,500, included a 13 percent increase from the last budget. Senator Darrel Renstrom said that with inflation being at 13 percent WSC has to educate more students with the same money. Student fees used in variety of ways Editor's Note: This article is the first of a five part series to inform the students where each dollar of their fee's are spent. At WSC the student fee's are used to finance activities which do not relate to direct classroom education. This year's school fees have increased to $51 from last years mark of $49. College students will contribute $1,341,800 of total fees this school year. The student fees are distributed in seven categories. Building Fee - Each quarter $26.33 of student fee's amounting to $692,770 will be channelled to pay for the bonds and interest of the dorms and Union building.

The U. of U. received a 14.6 percent increase, U.S.U. 13.4 percent and the smaller colleges got no less than 15.8 percent. In light of this the Utah Legislature Executive Appropriations Committee added $500,000 more than the governor's budget to WSC. However, later in the session, the same committee, known as the "Hatchet" committee chopped off $224,000. Senator Renstrom introduced an amendment which would have put the money back in, but Senator Norm Bangerter Salt Lake County claimed that the state was out of money. This money wasn't another ornament on the Christmas tree, claimed WSC liason Robert DeBoer, but constituted a real need. During the session colleges were accused of beefing up their requests for money in order to receive a good amount, and this was referred to as putting ornaments on the Christmas tree. WSC President Rodney Brady said the college didn't put any ornaments on and WSC did not ask for more than the State Board of Regents recommended. SB 72 gave Weber State the . ownership of the. old St. Benedicts . Hospital along with $2,000,000. The old hospital, at 30th and Polk,, is being considered for office space and married housing by the college, and the $2,000,000 will be used in helping to construct a new Business and Economics building. is paid for. $267,550 or $10.17 per student is subscribed for athletics.

Cosmetology centers complaints on 'inadequate' patron parking By Matt Cole The' main event of last Thursday's Parking Committee meeting was the complaints made by the Cosmetology Department. The complaints of the department centered on 10 reserved parking stalls that they claim are not enough to suit their patronage. An adequate number would be 30, they said. Secondly, the reserve spots are guarded by two-hour meters. If a patron renders a service of the depart STATE COLLEGE f ( o Lfz v J I - r ODDEN UTAH ment the time on the meter will expire before the hair treatment is completed. The Cosmetology Department believes they are losing community patronage because people can't find a place to park on campus between 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. Patronage is an essential element of the program. Each student is required by state law to apply theory based on learned skills on subjects. If there is no patronage the vality of the department will be in jeopardy. The topic was opened for February 12, 1980 discussion, but the Cosmetology representatives had no concrete solution that could help solve the problems. Mike Arave, member of the parking committee, made the motions to form a committee of students, cosmetology representatives, and himself as chairman. This committee's purpose would be to evaluate the problem, prepare, .a--cbm-promisiQg-6krt1bh and present the proposal -to the parking committee in two weeks.

|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.|
