Lynn Shalton, the building which is schleduled to house classes next fall Big Sky Tourney starts tonight Brady considered for U president Weber State College President Rodney Brady has been suggested as a possible successor to University of Utah President David Gardner, who is leaving the University to accept a similar position with the University of California. Dr. Brady's name was mentioned in conjunction with four other names to fill the position at Utah. A search committee has been established by the Utah State Board of Regents to select a successor for Dr. Gardner. The search committee hopes to have the new president named by June 30. Candidates may be nominated to the committee or they may formally apply for the position. The committee will narrow the applicants down to four or five people and select the new president from that group. President Brady said that he would have to find out more about the position, but he "would have to give serious consideration to it." President Brady added he felt sure there would be many qualified applicants from around the country applying for the vacancy and that he would have to wait and see what develops before committing himself. Learn how to 'package' self, audience told by Lisa Wright Managing Editor Have you ever thought of yourself as a product-one that has to be marketed and sold to a future employer? That was the main thrust of the convocation Thur-day by clothing consultant William Thourbly. Thourbly told the sparse crowd in the Browning Center that if they placed success as the top priority, they should be willing to package themselves for the greatest possibilities. "Think of yourself as a product and what you are selling is brains," he said. The proper clothing can either make or break a prospective employee in the business world. According to Thourbly, what is currently the fashion trend is usually not the thing to wear when looking for a job, especially if that job is with a large conservative company. Knowing how to dress yourself for business is what Thourbly referred to as "the unfair advantage." That unfair advantage is learning how control first impressions and use them to your advan tage. "When strangers meet you, they don't know you or what you can do. You can be anyone that you want and create any impression that you want," Thourbly said. "We (the potential employers) see everything. Nothing you wear goes unnoticed, and everything makes an impression."Thourbly outlined five things to remember: 1. Honestly look at yourself in the mirror and evaluate your weaknesses and how to best camoflage them. He said everyone should have at least a full-length mirror in order to get the full picture presented to the public. 2. Take advantage of the "Threshold Effect" (for the first impression). Thourbly said there are 10 questions which can be answered about a person by just looking at him the first time: How much money he makes, his education level, trustworthiness, social position, social heritage, etc. What a person wears and how he carries himself are the fundamental determinants in the "Threshold affect." 3. Don't confuse fashion with business clothing. 4. Don't confuse emotional clothing with business clothing. 5. Deviation from the unwritten code of business dress and style is the "kiss of death." Thourbly told the audience that both men and women should wear classic, traditional suits. The darker the color, the more serious a person appears about his intentions. Thourbly detailed several guidelines for suits, shoes, hairstyles, shirts and blouses for success-minded men and women. A theme which ran thoughout was to keep clothing simple and basic. "After you have become well established and are determining what people around you do, then you can deviate from this style," he said. All who are intending to breaking successfully into the business world should have a good "investment" in suits, Thourbly said. A minimum of five is the basic number to start with. Shirts and blouses' should be in neutral colors and men would be smart to make their first dozen white. Thursday's convo was the final one for the quarter. by Steve Largent Editor-in-Chief RENO, Nev.-The "Biggest Little City in the World" has suddenly gotten bigger with the Big Sky Basketball Championship in town. The Weber State, Montana and Idaho basketball teams can be easily spotted throughout Reno. Situated close to the foothills of the Sierra Mountains, Reno has never had this much "tall timber" in town at one time. The host team, University of Nevada-Reno, has been the subject of much of the pre-tourney conversation. Almost everyone is wondering how much longer their good luck will continue. According to the latest Big Sky statistics, UNR is averaging 75.5 points per game, while giving up an average of 74.6. There are so many stories about UNR winning at the last second that it would probably take volumes to write them all down. Believe it or not, Weber State is not the only team beaten by Nevada-Reno in the closing seconds of a game. The Wildcats, after arriving in Reno late Wednesday night, had a fairly easy day yesterday, with nothing on the schedule until a 4 p.m. practice session that was open to both press and public. On Thursday evening the tournament banquet and press conference was held at the El Dorado Hotel, which is serving as tournament headquarters. Today, the Wildcats will have a closed practice early in the day and then rest up for their first round game tonight against the Montana Grizzlies. The tournament is almost like an entirely new season. Weber State has met Montana on three previous occasions in tournament play and the Wildcats have won all three games. Weber State has also defeated Montana in both regular games this season. The Wildcat team was happy with their first-round pairing against Montana. Tom Heywood said that hJing beaten Montana twice is a real advantage for the Wildcats. "We play well against them because we match up well against their team. I would much rather be playing them in the first round than Idaho or Reno." The Weber StateMontana game will be the second game on the slate for Friday night. Game time is set for 40 minutes after the completion of the IdahoNevada-Reno game, or shortly after 10 p.m. MST. The game will be televised live on KUTV Channel 2. The contest will also be broadcast on 1430 KJQ AM and KCGL FM 106, with John Peterson calling the action.

|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.|
