O Weber State College Whatever happened to Crystal Crest? For the story, see the 'Signature' section starting on page 7. Vol. 44 No. 9 Tuesday, October 25, 1983 u u WSC Debate Team Excels in California by Lisa Wright-Largent Editor in Chief The nationally-ranked Weber State debate team returned home Monday night from two very successful tournaments that were held last weekend in California. Biola University, located outside of Los Angeles, was the site for the first tournament: the Biola University Individual Events Invitational. At that tournament, Kathy Kendell, a senior English major, took several of the individual event awards. Kendell won first place in extemporaneous speaking, third in improptu, third in persuasive and fifth place in expository. Monette Hurtado followed right behind Kendell with a second-place finish in the extemporaneous competition. The second tournament that the forensics team attended was the San Diego State -Aztec Invitational. Both the individual events team and the debate team participated in this tournament. Kathy Kendell took second place in poetry interpretation and Brian Boggess took sixth in after-dinner speaking, dramatic interpretation and poetry interpretation. Weber State's top two teams closed out the senior division of CEDA debate. The team of Shauna Wood-Kevin Boyer, who remain undefeated so far this year, and the team of Vince DeGarlais-Chip Cox were both successful in reaching the final round. Because both teams were from Weber State no final round was held and Weber brought home the first- and second-place trophies. Wood also walked away with the trophy for top speaker in the senior division. As a rule it is rare for women to take top speaker honors. Boyer, Wood's partner, took second speaker and Cox was the fifth. In the junior division of CEDA debate, Lornia Tester was the 10th speaker. Assistant debate Coach Dave Allen said that both he and head Coach Dave Berube were extremely pleased with the performance of the team. Allen stated that the Weber is strong in both individual events as well as debate, making the Weber State forensics program very well-rounded. "We are on the way to establishing Weber as one of the top teams in the country," Allen said. Allen also stated that there may be one or two openings on the team for someone with debate or individual event experience. Those who are interested should contact either Allen or Berube in the Browning Center, room 405. i"Mr, r c ENTS CENTER ' , m 'HI i w f r I m- i -J"-- -.-""""r 'A " t I " 2- j? j - - : . . : i f . - ., ,, v. ,- f , ( -. - , ; .l i i - . ..- --.i '--:v --... ..n.

A lot of the lightbulbs in the sign were burnt out, leaving broken messages and jumbled information for passersby to read. On Monday, a workman showed up to fix the sign that has been partially burnt out for more than a month. Signpost photoLaurie Call Watergate Reporter to Address Students Carl Bernstein, half of the Woodward and Bernstein reporting team, will speak at Weber State College on Oct. 27, at noon in the Browning Center. Bernstein and Woodward are most famous for their unmasking of the Watergate cover-up for the Washington Post. "We don't perceive ourselves as heroes," said Bernstein during one interview. "We just did our job. We did some things well and some things poorly." "Woodstein," as the two reporters were collectively known in the newsroom, earned almost every major journalism award, including the Sigma Delta Chi award for distinguished service in the field of Washington correspondence, the George Polk Memorial Award, and the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for public service. Born in Washington D.C., Carl Bernstein attended the local public schools where he was, by his own admission, a "terrible student" more interested in reading his father's copy of I.F. Stone's "Weekly" than in his lessons. "The only thing I could do in school was write," he told one interviewer. "I'd pass the essay exams and flunk the true and false." Bernstein first entered journalism at age 16 as a copy boy at the Washington Star, working his way up to assistant city editor before leaving for the New Jersey Daily Journal. He joined the staff of the Washington Post in 1966. Although he was not originally assigned to cover the Watergate break-in, Bernstein was intrigued by the case and wangled a sidebar story on the five ap prehended suspects. He later "polished" an astonished Bob Woodward's piece identifying James Mc-Cord as the salaried security advisor for the Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP). Ordered back to the Virginia desk, Bernstein repeatedly pestered the metropolitan editor for a chance to follow up leads Bob Woodward was not pursuing. And so began the famous "Woodstein" investigation. The pair have written two books: AH the Presidents Men which traces the reporters' steps from the break-in to the beginning of the Senate hearings 11 months later, and a follow-up book entitled The Final Days. The convocation is free to students, faculty and senior citizens, and $1 for others.

|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.|
