WEBER STATE EOLLEGE r o ODDEN UTAH Volume 40 Issue 4 J Weber State College, Ogden Utah October 9, 1979 ."-",,, , " I 1 s s s o n : - ii H r i I t --. V t W- Is DEC practical? By Lynne Dale Gardner, director of the Dee Events Center, said many things contribute to making the Center a success as far as the variety of programs is concerned, the major determiner being support. "I've been all over the country and I think the DEC is one of the nicest facilities of its kind I've seen," he said. In a list of figures given by Gardner, it was found that rock concerts have had the least amount of support, hence many sponsors of the shows held have lost money. Gardner said that agents and promoters tell him when they visit the DEC that they are looking from the business point of view. The promoters would rather bring their shows to the main center of population (Salt Rowley Lake) where there is a better chance of making money from the shows. One problem the Dee has confronted as far as shows are concerned has been the structural aspect. Many groups have wanted to hand equipment on the cloud which hangs from the center of the dome that weighs over its 15,000 pound limit. For instance, in Sept. both Bad Company and Foreigner were scheduled to perform in the Center. Bad Company withdrew, saying they did not think it would be good for two similar concerts to be held during the same week. Foreigner also withdrew. They said they could not hand the desired amount of equipment (18,000 pounds) from the cloud, continued on page 11 Salary briefs filed By Beverly Taggart Briefs have been filed by the college and former Signpost Editor John Redding, and the Utah Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in October or November, according to Red-ding's attorney, John Preston Creer. Last year, the Signpost editor fied suit in Third District Court requesting the college release "employees' identifiable salary." Judge Hal Taylor ordered the college to release the information and WSC then appealed. According to the briefs, WSC will argue three points which include: "The lower court committed reversible error when it enjoined the State's Record Committee from discharging its statutorily established duties," "The release of personally identifiable salary information constitutes a coilation of a constitutionally protected right or privacy which can only be violated after finding by the court that the state interest to be served outweighs the individuals rights. No such factual examination of finding took place in the lower court and its order should be reversed," and, "The lower court erred in granting plantiff's motion for judgement on the pleadings before an answer to the complaint had been filed by defendant Dr. Rodney H. Brady and without examining the reasons and justification for the college's policy of non-disclousre." According to Redding's briefs, Creer will argue seven points which include: "Under the Utah Constitution respondent has the right to obtain information regarding the gross salaries paid by the state and its agencies to the employees thereof," "Disclosure of a public employee's gross salary derived from his employment with a state institution does not violate the public employee's right or privacy," "Pursuant to the public and private writings act, the names and corresponding gross salaries paid to employees of state institutions must be available for public inspection," "Respondent is entitled to access to information relating to the compensation of employees of Weber State College under the terms and provisions of the Archives and Records Service Act," "The Utah Information Practices' Act of 1975 does not modify the public's right to inspect the names and corresponding gross salaries paid to employees of Weber State College," "The District Court correctly issued an injunction restraining the appellants from modifying in any way respondent's right of access to public information," and . "Appellant-Brady, President of Weber State College, had no authority to makes rules or regulations preventing disclosure of the gross salaries paid to employees of Weber State College." In 1977, the Utah Records Committee classified all state employee's salaries as "public information." In March, 1978, a reporter submitted a written request to the college for a list of all employees' names and individual salaries. continued on page 3 1 ' ,!.,. - - ...v ' ' - . -A '""K. i X b f ' t- 5 1""" vt'm. ,-,!

According to police . records, the brakes on a service van failed and the vehicle drifted out of control down a sight grade. It stopped when it side-swiped one parked car and ran head-on into another. The estimated damage to the three vehicles involved is $2,650. Chief Lee Cassidy, of the W SC campus police, said there has been more than the usual amount of traffic accidents this year at WSC. These have been the result of campus construction and freshman who are unfamiliar with the traffic procedures on campus he said.

|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.|
