' I CHUCK FKUDKlCh., TKK member, openly violates the no-longer existing Union Building games area dress code, l'hoto by Suzette Ahrendt. Keep your shorts on, even in games area by Beverly DeVoy "The dress code sucks," said Mike Williams, a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE). About six members of the fraternity wore shorts in the games area Friday to protest the dress code the games area manager had implemented on students. Last week, Tom Kiernan, manager, said he would not admit anyone into the games area with shorts on because of a 1965 Weber State College dress code. Later in the day, the Union Building Policy Board met to discuss the dress code and This is the last issue of the Signpost this quarter. The newspaper will not be printed during the summer. The next issue of the E 1 recommended policy in the games area should be the same as the rest of the Union Building. Union Director Farrel Shepherd said he told bowling alley employees last week not to "make a fuss" when students came into the games area until the policy board made a decision on the code. No official action was taken at the meeting because a quorum was not present. However, Vice President of Administrative Services, Parry Wilson, also a member of the board, said he would like to go on record that "dress standards apply to the whole Union Building, and since " 1 Signpost will iust after appear school resumes in September. Enjoy your summer, as we will enjoy ours ! n 8 S the games area was part of the building, shorts and cut-offs should be premitted in the games area." Sally McKinny said the 1965 dress code also stated "faculty and staff must wear a coat and tie", and if the dress code was going to be enforced on students in the games area then it should also be enforced in all areas. Chairman Greg Garfield, said, "If Tom Kiernan wishes to have some sort of code, he can write it up and present it to the board." He added shorts should be permitted in the games area as in the rest of the building. Wilson also recommended that a dress code concerning socks when bowling should be required, for health reasons. Garfield then suggested the bowling alley should stock socks so they will be available for students when they come in to bowl. Salary question goes to Supreme Court Signpost Editor John Redding said he is not through with his pursuit for Weber State College employees' salaries. "The Utah Supreme Court still has to rule on the appeal the college filed suit on, before I decide whether or not to take the issue into federal court," Redding noted. According to the editor's attorneys, the state Supreme Court will hear the appeal next month. Redding filed suit against the college last year requesting personally identifiable salary information and successfully won the suit in Third District Court in Salt Lake City. The college then appealed. However, the state legislature then made it law that salaries of employees in higher education were classified as private information.

"1 feel the actions of the state legislature were now set one group of people above another," the editor noted. "I also think the new law is unconstitutional. I'll just have to wait and see what the Utah Supreme Court decides on Ithe issue. The court may decide the law is unconstitutional and order the college to release the salaries." "However," he said, "if the court rules in favor of the college because the legislature changed the law, then I will have no other choice but to go into federal court." Redding noted his attorneys were researching the constitutional aspect of the law, and will be advised by them when they reach a conclusion.

|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.|
