In addition, several budgets will be reexamined in an effort to better serve the needs of the studentbody. According to ASWSC President-elect Brad Howell, the officers want to respond to their constituency and establish an open relationship with the students. "When we (the officers) were elected to office, we were told we had to have budgets submitted by a certain deadline," Howell said. "We drew up our budgets rather quickly because we were forced to meet the deadline." . According to Howell, some mistakes were made. "Part of the problem was our inexperience and the lack of time to research our budgets made the problem worse," he said. Howell also commented that by employing hindsight, the .officers were able to see some of their errors ..- "There are some changes we need to make to respond to student needs," he said. "On the issue of peer advisement, we fully intended to fund that program from the beginning. When the issue was presented in budget hearings, it was presented as under a different name faculty evaluations. Had it been presented as peer advisement, we would have voted differently." Howell added that there was not a representative from peer advisement at the hearings. "There was a lack of communication as to how the money was to be spent," Howell said. "The new council can make changes in the budget and realign funding until July 1. And even after that, changes can be instituted," stated Howell. "What it comes down to is that we as a new council were appropriating funds when we hadn't had adequate time to plan. We know the students are concerned and we as officers want to respond to those concerns," Howell continued. "Students who are upset should come in and confront us directly. We are, and will continue to be accessible to the studentbody." Forensics director has motorcycle accident A member of the WSC communications faculty was released from the hospital Monday after suffering injuries in a motorcycle accident Friday, according to Dr. Harold Hunker, communications department chairman. Randy Scott, director of forensics, was traveling home on Mountain Road from a communications department party at a faculty member's home in Fruit Heights, when he hit a pot hole .in the road and lost contol of his motorcycle. Hunker stated that Scott fractured his jaw, along with skinning up his hands and legs. He also cut his cheek and had to have six stitches in it. For the next three weeks Scott will have his jaw wired, however, he will be returning to classes on May 31 after a week's recovery period.

|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.|
