Committees Take Care of WSC Business by Cherilyn Kawa Staff Reporter Administrative standing committee appointments, ranging from appointments on the union policy board to the Dee Events Center committee, have been made for the 1983-84 academic year. Students, faculty, staff and community members who comprise the committees will assist the WSC administration in a variety of tasks. The committees submit recommendations for changes, advise students, and perform an array of other tasks. Members are selected by recommendations from faculty, staff and past committee members. Each of the 20 committees has a designated statement of purpose: some set short term-goals while others work towards long-term goals. "A lot of good recom mendations have been made by the committees and have been implemented," said Elaine Jarrett, assistant vice president for administrative services. The art advisory board has a long term goal of acquiring a building to display artwork. The board's statement of purpose is the acquisition and utilization of college art objects. The admissions, credits, and graduation committee approves and disapproves waivers of policy. "Many times a student might be a credit hour short of graduating and the class needed is not taught spring quarter. The student can appeal to this committee for a possible waiver of credit," explained Jarrett. Committee meetings range from once a week to once a year. The financial aid and the student activities committees are both ongoing committees, whereas the records committee does not meet often. It is a good indication of campus activity when the standards committee does not meet, said Jarrett. This group acts as a court to provide administrative hearings on violations of rules and regulations of the campus. One of the more interesting committees is the human subjects in research. This group approves the use of any human being used in research at the college. Setting policies on the control of radioactive substances used on campus is the purpose of the radiation and controlled-substance committee. Committee decisions could affect the departments who use these types of substances, such as the chemistry department. Advisors, department chairmen, and studentbody officers should be aware of the various committees so they can assist students in getting help, saidJarrett. Convocation to Spotlight 'Paper Lion' George Plimpton, a writer and editor, will be the speaker in the second fall convocation sponsored by ASWSC. He will speak at noon in the Austad Auditorium of the Browning Center on Oct; 19. The convocation will be held on Wednesday instead of the usual Thursday because of a Ballet West performance to be held in the auditorium on Thursday. Plimpton is best known for his first-hand research into the subjects he writes about. He played quarterback for the Detroit Lions to gather material for his 1966 book about pro football, Paper Lion. He also played basketball for the Boston Celtics, hockey for the Boston Bruins, percussion with the New York Philharmonic, and pitched in both the American and National Baseball Leagues. In addition, he has fought bulls, driven a race car, and boxed with a light-weight champion. Plimpton is a native of New York City and has degrees from Harvard University and King's College at Cambridge University in England. In 1953, in Paris, Plimpton started the magazine Paris Review, of which he is still editor. The quarterly magazine features the works of young authors. Plimpton has taught at Barnard College and has been associate editor at both Horizon Magazine and Harper's Magazine. He is also a special contributor to Sports Illustrated. Plimpton, a Democrat, is a friend of the Kennedy family and after President John Kennedy's assassination, he helped prepare an oral history of the president's life. He also campaigned for Senator Robert F. Kennedy and was with Kennedy when he was shot. His hobbies include bird watching and fireworks (he is the fireworks commissioner of New York City). Plimpton has written a number of books including Out of My League," "The Bogey Man," "A Sports Bestiary," and "One for the Record." The convocation, Wednesday, is free to students with ID cards, faculty and senior citizens. The cost is $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.|
