Governor for open wages by Beverly DeVoy Taggart Governor Scott M. Matheson still favors disclosure of professors' and administrators' salaries in higher education according to Press Secretary Maggie Wilde. Wilde said Matheson did not veto House Bill 129 because his personal feelings on the issue did not out-weigh' what the legislators voted orr. The House and Senate voted to classify employees' salaries in higher education as private. However, all other state employees in Utah have their salary classified as public. "He (Matheson) must look at the critical grounds of a bill before he vetoes it," Wilde noted. "The maior concern he would first look at would be constitutional grounds, and the bill was sent back from the attorney general's office stating there was no constitutional problem with the bill." Signpost Editor John Redding said he is waiting for advice from his attorneys on whether to file a new suit in federal court on the constitutional asDect of the bill.

|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.|
