Man in girl's shower By Liz Rocca Contributing writer Jeffrey Burton (left) and Barry Dopp of Weber State take advantage of "Dead Week" to catch up on some much needed studying, in preparation for the ordeal of Photo by Rodney Wright next week's round of final exams. The pair was caught displaying these two widely divergent studying styles in the Stewart Library. A female student was taken by surprise by a male intruder early Wednesday while showering in her dormitory bathroom. Sally Bond (not her real name), who lives in the Promontory Tower dormitory, was taking a shower at about 6 a.m. when she "heard someone rip open the shower curtain." She looked up to find a tall, blond, blue-eyed man standing at the shower door. "He just stood there," Bond said. "He just stared at me but never said a word." When Miss Bond began to scream, the intruder fled. Miss Bond says she had never seen the man prior to the incident, and does not believe he is a resident of Promontory Tower. Attempts thus far by campus police to locate the man have proved fruitless. Officer Roger Johnson, of the WSC campus police, admits that the chances of ever locating the suspect are very slim. "All we've got to go on is a vague description," he said. "Unfortunately it's a description that could fit a million people." However, campus police will continue to investigate the matter. WSC may gain cable channel Police keep on writing tickets By Cherilyn Kawa Staff Reporter WSC will have its own cable channel in January if Community TV of Utah donates channel 10 to the school. Ad-minsrrators will receive final word from the company next week. Cost for the station will be minimal since a satellite disc valued at $3,200 was donated by Wayne Porter, an employee at Microtena. The disc will pick up signals from Appalachian Community Service Network, which can provide programming for the station. About 64 hours of programming on such things as NASA, mini-classes on how to get a job and various cultural events will be broadcast by the network. Bringing in shows will allow the station to start out showing high quality programming from the start, said Dr. Marie Hotter, WSC vice president and coordinator of the station. As broadcasting students, who will be managing the station, gain more experience, they will produce a televised Ogden news broadcast."This will be excellent 'hands on' experience for students. It would also be beneficial to about 12,000 local residents who have cable and will receive the channel," said Dr. Kotter. Clever thief hits bookstore Campus police are investigating the case of a thief with an imagination. According to Lt. David Hestand of campus security, this thief was stealing books from the bookstore. This would not be so unusual, except that the bookstore recently installed an up-to-date security system to prevent exactly that kind of shoplifting. The crook, who is not even a student, apparently found out which books were not covered by the security system, so he stole only them. And where would a thief go if he wanted cash for the stolen books? Why, the college bookstore of course. Now that is imagination. But there's more. The thief was caught, and confessed. Not only did the thief steal bookstore books and sell them back, he also stole books from the Junction (the downstairs snack bar) and sold them back as well. Now the plot thickens. The county attorney would not prosecute the bandit, because all he had was a confession. No complaints were filed for any "stolen" books. The only chance of convicting the bookstore thief lies in the books stolen from the Junction. These are the books: "Women and Men" by O'Kally "Microbiology" by Pelizar "Survey of Human Diseases" by Purtilo If you mysteriously lost a copy of one of these books in the Juction sometime around the end of October, please contact either Bill Conlon at the Signpost or David Hestand at campus security. Here's a trivia question for you: How many parking tickets have been written this quarter? Go ahead, take a wild stab. Five hundred? A thousand? Maybe two thousand?Not even close. Just this quarter alone, Weber State police have written close to 12,000-that's TwelveThousand--parking tickets. And for a school with under 11,000 enrollment, that's a lot of tickets. According to Roger Johnson, one of the prodigious writers at campus security, "We show them no mercy out in the lots." (That would seem so.) "But," he said, "the judge voids a lot of the tickets, and we take care of quite a few here atsecurity-" Campus police chief Lee Cassity agreed, saying that only about 80 resulted in close to $21,000 taken in, according to the WSC Controller's office. However, the money taken in from fines is not lost or wasted. In fact, the majority of the funding taken in from ticket fines goes intgo parking lot maintenance, this also ac- j - r I Photo by Richard bawyer Just one of the many tickets written on campus this quarter. One WSC police official estimated the rate of writing tickets at about 200 a day. cording to Controller's office.So, next time you see that familiar calling card on your windshield, remember--It's because of you that the parking lots are in such good shape. And besides, you have a lot of help doing it .

|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.|
