Younger lines up for a shot. White Photo by James Powell entertained a large crowd in the U.B lobby for two hours with his wit and his skill with a pool cue. Selective Service claims 93 percent sign-up rate The Selective Service recently released updated statistics showing the compliance rate for registration of young men, both at the state and national level. As of July 8, 8.4 million men have registered, for a compliance rate of 93 . These figures include men born in 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963 and the first six months of 1964. At the state level, Wyoming leads the nation with a compliance of 98. At the median levels are states such as Virginia and Pennslyvania, both at 92 . Rhode Island has the lowest compliance rate in the nation at 84.3. Thomas K. Turnage, director of the Selective Service, noted that the registration program is a very successful one. He said, "I can think of no other program-either in the public or private sector-that has a 93 success rate. I'm very proud of the young men of this na tion who have accepted their responsibilities as citizens and have complied with the law." Young men are required to register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. They may register at any U.S Post Office by filling out a simple form which asks only for their name, address, telephone number, social security number and date of birth. Director Turnage continues to stress that his interest is in registering people, not prosecuting them. He encourages late registrants to come forward and register. "If young men deliberately and knowingly fail to register, however, I am obliged by law to send their names to the Justice Department for possible prosecution."In mid-August, the government mailed out approximately 33,000 letters to non-registrants, warning them to register or face possible prosecution. New professor named to staff A recent addition to the psychology department is Dr. Joe Horvat, who joined the WSC faculty and began teaching classes this fall. Dr. Horvat has beer, actively involved in both education and clinical psychology. He received bachelor's degrees in both psychology and business administration from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado in 1975. While in Colorado, Dr. Horvat was involved with a mental health center. He then went on to graduate school at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, where in 1976 he received a master's and in 1979 a Ph.D. in the field of psychology. Again while in school he was engaged in working with a mental health center. Upon receiving his Ph.D. he began teaching at Longwood College in Farm-ville, Virginia. He taught there for 3 years before accepting his current position at WSC. In Virginia, he again worked in a private clinical practice as well as working for the government as a therapist instructor for the Alchol Safety Action Program. Dr. Horvat was hired to teach primarily Abnormal Psychology, Adjustment, and Introduction to Psychology. His teaching centers around the philosophy of an exciting classroom. "I like to make the classroom experience as fun as possible," Horvat said, "because I believe it fosters an environment conducive to learning." He expects mastery of the material and wants his students to prove their knowledge on his tests. Horvat and his wife Judy came to WSC to get back to this part of the country, near where they were raised. He said, "WSC could offer an environment conducive to our needs." He described himself as impressed with the credentials of the other members of the faculty particularly in the psychology department. Horvat also said, "The administation is very supportive, particularly in regard to the need for research and professional development." Weekly convocation to feature noted UFO investigator Has the government been involved in a massive cover-up of an alien crash-landing on earth? This Thursday's convocation speaker, Clark McClelland, believes there is some kind of "Cosmic Watergate" going on. For over 32 years McClelland has been a recognized authority on UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) astronomy and space exploration. McClelland began studying the stars at an early age, and has been involved in planetary research at a leading university. McClelland's work, especially concerning the planet Mars, gained significant recognition in the United States, the U.S.S.R. and in Japan. During 15 years in association with the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral, Florida, McClelland served in various capacities. Some of the evidence McCIellan claims for a cosmic cover-up is thought-provoking. For instance, he claims that in 1977, at a gathering of former military combat pilots, a World War II pilot testified that, "I saw the alien bodies at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, in 1953. They were stored in a large hangar. One was believed to r ... - - j A mock-up of an alien, made from the report of the autopsy supposedly done be that of a female. There's approximately where they crashed." (Pointing at a map of Arizona. Other evidence which McCIellan claims supports his position will be described at Thursday's convocation. This convocation, unlike most others, will be held in the Union Building Ballroom. The convocation is free to the public and is scheduled to begin at noon.

|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.|
