WEBER ST ATE-2 110 OG DEN 84408 FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 1982 Vol. 42 No. 47 J Li First annual WSC Road Rally scheduled for Saturday All interested Weber State "road rally racers" should plan to tune-up their engines, put on their helmets and leather racing gloves and dust off their Maseratis, because the first annual Weber State College "Kar Krash" Road Rally will take place tomorrow night, April 24. The rally is sponsored by C.A.B., the Weber State College Activities Board. Those wishing to compete in the road rally will be required to pay a $1 entry fee to the ASWSC secretary in the Student Activity Center, downstairs in the U.B. Contestants will meet at the information desk in the Union Building no later than 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, the day of the race. Participants in the rally will have to hunt-by car, of course-for clues spread throughout the Ogden area. The individual or team who finds all of the clues and returns to WSC first will win a cash prize of $50. The object of the rally is not raw speed, but is instead a test of the driver's knowledge of the local area roads and his or her timing. The CAB does not condone the breaking of speed limits. The C.A.B. expects a fair turnout for the event, the first of its kind at WSC. Todd Boothe, recently elected to the position of activities vice president, said, "We expect about 20 to 30 entries for the rally. Response for (the rally) has been pretty good so far." As of press time there were 11 entries in the rally, including Alpha Chi Omega sorority, Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity ("the Pikes") and other individual entries. After the Road Rally, the College Activities Board, in conjunction with radio station KRSP of Salt Lake City, will sponsor a stomp in the Weber State College Union Building Ballroom from 8 p.m. until midnight. KRSP's John Carter will be the disc jockey for the post-rally stomp. Admission to the stomp is $2, and tickets will be available at the door. Convo emphasizes Indian culture by Bill Conlon Signpost staff Serene Hardin, star of the motion picture "Windwalker," emphasized during yesterday's sparsely attended convocation the importance to Native Americans of passing their culture on to future generations. Hardin, 19, described herself as raised as "an urban Indian," with so-called "moccasins on the sidewalk." She made references to her mother, a Navajo born in Shiprock, New Mexico, and said she took her grandmother's name, meaning "a woman who will go far" in a special name ceremony. Her father, she said, is of Swedish origins but is "more Indian than the rest of us." Miss Hardin spoke at length about both acting in general and the filming of "Wind-walker" in particular. She described the filming as "full of bloopers" but said that it was a rewarding experience for her, including the opportunity to work with Trevor Howard, whom she described as "just great to work with." Delving deeper into her experiences with the motion picture industry, Miss Hardin noted the problems faced by Native Americans in finding work in Hollywood. She expressed disappointment in the casting for a sequel to "A Man Called Horse," in which she said no Native Americans were given lead parts. This she attributed to the tough competition for starring roles in movies. She also said that better technical advisors were needed "so that we don't get any more hokey Indian stories." Miss Hardin is presently engaged to a young actor, she said, and the wedding will be held sometime in September or October, as soon as her fiance completes his "Sun Dance," a manhood ceremony. The convocation, highlighting Indian Awareness Week on campus, lasted a short 40 minutes and was only attended by about 100 people. Women's Week begins Monday The Associated Women Students of Weber State College are planning a "Women's Week" to be held Monday through Friday of next week, (April 26-April 30) on the Weber State campus. All are invited to come and join in the activities. The week will begin on Monday with a Variety Show to be held in the main Union Building lounge between noon and 1 p.m. Individuals and performing groups of women will display their talents in the show, which will include vocal numbers, dances and instrumental performances. The week will continue on Tuesday when Mary Kroencke, anchorwoman for KTVX, Channel 4 News will speak in room 338 of the Union Building. Kroencke will speak about her profession and experiences. On Wednesday, following the regular weekly women's brown bagger, Jay Jacobs will present a fashion show at 1 p.m. in the WSC Skyroom restaurant. On Thursday at noon, leading make-up consultant Jeanne Stevens will give a convocation in the Browning Center's Austad Auditorium on facial make-up and color analysis. Throughout the week, there will be arts and crafts on display in the Women's Resource Center and downstairs in the Union Building Lounge. These will be on display until Friday. The public is cordially invited to attend the above events. Debaters take trophies by Jill Niederhauser and Dave Allen x Two members of the Weber State College Debate Team each took a third place trophy while competing in the National Individual Events Tournament held last weekend at Mankato State University in Mankato, Minnesota. Dave Allen placed third in Impromptu Speaking while Stuart Thatcher placed third in the After-Dinner Speaking event. Allen and Thatcher traveled to Minnesota accompanied by WSC Debate Coach Randy Scott and Assistant Debate Coach Tony Wynn. This national tournament, which will be hosted next year by Weber State College, is the "superbowl for speakers." Colleges and universities from all over the United States work throughout the season to qualify team members to attend this tournament. Dave Allen's impromptu speaking event combines quick responses with clear thinking and the ability to assemble ideas Iogicically. Each contestant is given a topic and one minute to prepare a six-minute presentation. Topics are generally selected from proverbs and other well known sayings.Allen competed in three preliminary and three elimination rounds against 63 of the nation's finest speakers in order to make it to the final round of competition, where he came in third. Stuart Thatcher was entered in After Dinner Speaking. This event consists of a memorized., original . speech prepared by the student. The intent of the speech is to entertain while simultaneously making a serious point. Thatcher's speech explored his experiences of living in a large multi-racial family. His speech kept the audience laughing for the entire 10 minutes yet by the end of the presentation, the audience walked away informed and emotionally touched. Randy Scott, WSC Debate Coach said he "was unexpectedly surprised, pleased and very proud of Dave and Stuart for their outstanding performance." Scott said he is looking forward to next year as both Dave and Stuart will be returning to competition. r v , - t'H A, , " ' , J : - f, v, a f : - Siarmost staff Dhoto Spring weather has finally arrived, and these two inhabitants of the WSC duck pond aren't the only ones to enjoy it. More warm weather is forecast for the coming weekend.

|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.|
