'Spy' to speak at convo by Barry Kawa Staff Reporter Thursday's convocation spy speaker Peter James, is billed as "shades of James Bond, Jim Rockford, and Magnum P.I." A former CIA informant, James advertises his current lecture tour as the, "No. 1 Spy Lecture Speaker Series in North America." James' claim to fame is his alleged contacts with key Russian scientists, engineers, and espionage agents. He describes himself as a controversial author, adventurer, 100,000 mile per year world traveler, speaker, and a man who has received high marks both as a spy and intelligence analyst. James is the author of two best-selling books, "Soviet Conquest from Space," and "The Air Force Mafia." Both books covered the issue of national security versus individual rights. James is currently a featured speaker on the college and university lecture circuit. This so-called "America's James Bond" convocation begans Thursday at noon in the Austad Auditorim of the Browning Center. Admission is free. Health building petition will be recirculated by Lisa Wright Managing Editor A concentrated effort to circulate the Allied Health building petition has been reorganized and re-emphasized. The petition is aimed at placing pressure on the State Legislature to approve funding for the proposed Allied Health building, which is currently number nine on the bond issue. The Legislature will vote on it sometime in March. The petition drive missed the projection completion date of Feb. 11 because of circumstances that, of necessity, delayed the project, the petition, however, did not die. Bruce Richeson, ASWSC president, said that he and the others who are working on the project feel that it is very wor- thwhile-and the type- of activity, that student government should be highly en-volved in. The petitions will be circulated by members of the Academic Senate, Legislative Council and other organizations on campus. Richeson stated that they want the petition taken throughout the whole Ogden Area to demonstrate to the Legislature that not only are WSC students and administration in favor of the Allied Health building, but members of the community as well. The goal of the project is to collect 10,000 signatures before the end of February Richeson emphasized the need of the Legislature to look at the consequences that failure to vote for the bond issue will bring. "If they fail to look to the future and plan now, the schools will be hard pressed in the coming years." Richeson said. Those, interested in helping with the petition can contact Bruce Richeson at 626-6349. New administator named as business affairs director By Bobbie Todd Staff Reporter Dr. Garth Welch has been recently appointed as Executive Director of Business Affairs. The announcement was made by Dr. Jerald Storey, vice president for business affairs. Although the title of Executive Director is new, the position is a result of Dr. Kimbal Wheatly's resignation. The job is being redefined, along with the new title. Dr. Welch has been a professor of chemistry at WSC since 1964. For the last nine years he has also been the dean of the school of natural sciences. Dr. Welch earned both a B.S. and a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Utah. He then did two years of postdoctoral work at UCLA. Dr Welch said he considers his appointment, which is effective immediately, to be a new challenge. He will continue to hold his position as dean of natural sciences until a successor can be appointed. Currently, he is holding down both posts along with teaching a course in chemistry. The duties of the new position, as defined by Dr. Welch, include the cor-dinating of captial faculty requests, minor remodeling and campus planning. "The prime objective is in the academic area. Business Affairs should be there to support and assits this function," he said. He will be working directly under Dr. Storey in conjunction with Architectural Services.The change is a different one Welch said, but he believes that he has something to offer. "Hopefully, I can bring my perspective to the job and gain some new perspective of my own," he . said. The 'perspective' he is referring to is an outlook from the academic side. He hopes to tie together the two branches of administration by bringing with him abilities for problem solving and skill with numbers. He also has an understanding of the faculty and students. Dr. Welch has been known as a very good teacher who has kept himself ac-cessable to his students. He stated his teaching philosphy this way, "If you have to advertise that you are sensitive to the students, you probably aren't." Welch stated that he has had mixed feelings about accepting the new position. "It is hard to give up a known situation," he said. He also commented that he regrets leaving the students and faculty he has been working with, although he will still try to teach on a limited scale. Dr. Welch commented that when he applied for the position, he had no strong feelings either way. He commented that his academic background is not one normally expected for this type of position. Originally from Brigham City, Dr. Welch and his wife have made their home in Ogden since his appointment to the WSC faculty 19 years ago. The Welches have seven children and three of them are currently attending WSC.

|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.|
