"About 600 people have had their pictures taken," she said. "Pretty bad odds when you figure we have 10,230 day and night students." The low turnout for free yearbook pictures is not the only problem plaguing the Acorn. Organizations on campus have been reluctant to purchase space in the publication and yearbook sales have been weak. Miss Crimin is running a new campaign, intended to sell both yearbooks and individual pages. Any chartered or unchartered organization on campus may buy whole or half yearbook pages outright, or will be given free pages for selling a certain number of yearbooks. Crimin said only the Otyokwa sorority and the LDSSA have as yet shown any interest. However, Miss Crimin remains hopeful about the ultimate success of Acorn.. "We're trying to convince organizations that they can become a part of the history of Weber State College. We're trying our best to get every student's picture in the yearbook by making the pictures free, providing a convenient location for taking them, and offering a discount photo package as an incentive," said Crimin. A special memo has been sent to all faculty members, urging them to have their pictures taken. "Some instructors have even let their classes out early to have their pictures taken, and that's great," Crimin said. "Everybody should be able to find five minutes they can spare." The last scheduled day for yearbook photos will be tomorrow, Feb. 24., between 8 a.m. and noon in the U.B. lounge. Students and faculty are urged to attend. T. Buff comes to Ogden... Thank you! T. Buff, the man who did for "Thank You" what Steve Martin did for "Well excuuuuse me," will appear in a convocation Thursday as part of Business Week activities. T. Buff, short for Tommy Buffington, is a native of Tex-arkana, Texas, but is presently residing in Salt Lake City. Buffington is an active businessman, handling the marketing and advertising for a number U.S. firms. He is better known to Utahn's, however, as the white-suited star of the Brown Brothers Furniture commercials.In very little time, Buffington's entrepreneurship has brought Brown Brothers from a small Salt Lake furniture store into a six-outlet chain. "I consider myself everybody's friend," says Buff ington, and his business record shows it. He is giving Thursday's convocation free of charge and believes in volunteering his time to speak at institutions of higher education.Thursday's convocation will begin at noon in Austad Auditorium of the Browning Center. Admission is free and the public is invited. Republicans show optimism for future by Jill Niederhauser A tone of optimism both for the future of the nation and the republican party set the mood for the annual Lincoln Day Republican fund-raiser Friday night at Weber State. Among the featured speakers at the dinner were Utah Senator Orrin Hatch and Congressman James V. Hansen. The audience was also favored with a series of musical selections by a barbershop quartet, "Dads and Lads" and listened to remarks by the Weber County Republican Chairwoman Mary Ann Murphy. A special message from President Reagan written specifically for the Republicans of Weber County was also read to the audience. The message kept with the theme of the dinner by expressing optimism about the American people's ability to solve their problems. Congressman James Hansen also was optimistic as he spoke about the U.S. and about the programs of the Reagan administration. "The first concern for this (the Reagan) administration is what's best for the country," Hansen said. He said "If things can't get done, it's because Congress won't pass them." He attributed the record deficit in Reagan's new budget to a threefold problem: 1) the rate, of inflation has slowed, causing fewer tax dollars to come in, 2) Carter's figures on military spending were "soft" and 3) Congress didn't cut enough. Hansen said that the most fair way to assess the situation was to look at "where things would be without Reagan's program" and that things would have been "much worse." The Congressman said that "It really won't hurt us to take a few cuts" and billed Reagan's new federalism as one of the best programs ever. Hansen said that "you get more out of local, state and county government because they're closer to you, you can get to them." Hansen's message stressed that the American public needs to improve its attitude. "It's all going to go down the tubes," he said, "unless the American public gets a positive attitude. ..we need a good dose of optimism." Hansen also complemented the work that Senator Hatch was doing in Washington saying that "Orrin is in the top five lawmakers in the nation." . The Senator returned the compliment by saying that "Jim came back to Washington with a tremendous knowledge of legislative activity through his experience in the Utah legislature. Jim has made a difference in his first year," he said. Senator Hatch also defended Reagan's economic programs saying "Reagan only cut one percent; he's not taking food out of the mouths of the poor." Hatch said that he would do two things for the people of Utah when he went back to the nation's capitol: fight to stop deficits and work to limit uncontrollable programs. When speaking of his upcoming campaign for re-election against Salt Lake City Mayor, Ted Wilson, Hatch said it was merely another incident in his history of being "plagued by Teds." Hatch ran his first Senate campaign against Ted Moss, is on five Senate committees with Ted Kennedy and now will run against Ted Wilson who is supported by Ted Kennedy and Ted Moss. Both of the legislators spoke favorably of Secretary of the Interior James Watt. Hatch said the "eastern liberal elite media" has used Watt by sending a constant "barrage" of material out against him. Hatch proclaimed "Watt the best Secretary of the Interior in the history of our country." Watt will visit Utah with Hansen in the near future. The validity of the remarks made during the fund-raiser will be tested in the ballot box next November as both Hansen and Hatch are up for re-election. As Congressman Hansen said, "I'm the employee, you're the employer." If an elected official is not liked, he can be "fired through the ballot box."

|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.|
