Weber State College pioneers Handicapped Awareness Day It's no World Series, but a baseball game at Weber State College today will be a very unique game, because all the players are blind. The blind baseball game will be played by both blind and blindfolded students and is just one of the many activities scheduled for Handicapped Awareness Day, an event sponsored by the Associated Students of WSC, the Social Work Club and the sorority of Lamba Delta Sigma. The Awareness Day starts at 7:30 a.m. in room 241 of the WSC Union Building and includes a handicapped tour of the campus by administration officials. Officials will tour campus as handicapped students would and have the choice of being blindfolded, in a wheelchair or wearing earplugs. Other activities include a lecture by Barbara Smith, relief society president of the L.D.S. church, and another by Dr. Bruce Haslam, WSC chairman of the department of psychology. Stephanie DeGraw, student services vice president, said that, although this event is the-first of its kind in the state, she hopes it "will not be just a one-shot deal." She said she has invited student government officers from other colleges and universities, with hope they will hold similar activities.Ms. DeGraw said, "This is a day for total awareness, not a day to point fingers. The more people we make aware, the more positive will be the improvements." According to Ms. DeGraw, during the daylong conference, disabled students hope to make the students, administration and community members more aware of the difficulties handicapped students encounter. From there, she said, appropriate changes can be made. Ms. DeGraw noted also that a total of 15 community displays, including ones from the Utah Easter Seal Association, Ogden Speech and Hearing Center, the Center for the Blind and the Utah Association of the Deaf, will be set up in the Union Building. Also planned is an art and ceramics exhibit which will feature works of handicapped artists from throughout the state. The exhibit will take place all day outside the Union Building Ballroom. Some of the works included in the display have won awards in competition. "The Steel Mill," a painting by Herb Smart Jr. of Salt Lake City, is one such work. It won a first place ribbon at the Sister Kenny International Art Show of Disabled Artists. Ms. DeGraw said of the event, "We really jant to involve the community, and hopefully, the community will come up andparticipate."

|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.|
