At noon on the first day of classes, evangelist Jed Smock held his "Christianity 101" class. With Bible in hand and pacing back and forth aggressively, Smock was proclaiming to be born-again free from sin. But he also claimed the guys on campus are "horny little devils," especially the fraternities, and that "co-eds on this campus are so wicked" he couldn't see "how the prostitutes make it in this town." Smock, who didn't know if Weber was a college or a university, was lauohed at bv the small crowd.

Those wishing to take the blood test are ad vised to fast for at least four hours prior to the test. The screening is being held in conjunction with Health Week '82, and the Weber State screening is only one of many to be conducted statewide. The purpose of Health Week is to acquaint people with some of the health benefits they are entitled to. The sponsors hope that, by bringing local health services together, people may find out about what is available and make better use of existing health programs. LaRee Raty of the WSC Student Health Center said that "at least 1,000 people are expected to attend." The event is being advertised in the local media in order to reach as many people as possible. The health screening will be held on Thursday only, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The event is open to the public. Reorganization affects Student Dean A recent organizational change in the top levels of the college administration has placed the Dean of Student Affairs under the jurisdiction of the Academic Affairs Vice President. Dean of Students, Dr. Kay Evans, previously reported directly to President Rodney Brady. Evans was the only Dean on campus that did so. The change, which was announced this past week by Presfdent Brady, will be effective at the end of the current school year. In making the decision, President Brady said that placing the Dean of Student Affairs under the direction of the Academic Affairs Vice President "would enhance the coordination and unify the direction" of the Student Affairs office. The organizational change places Dean Evans on the Dean's Council along with the academic deans from each of the eight schools on campus. In referring to the change, Dean Evans stated that she was confident she would have an excellent working relationship with Acdemic Affairs Vice President Robert Smith, although she had felt very positive about reporting directly to President Brady. Dean Evans pointed out that although her line of communication will go through Dr. Smith, then to President Brady, she will continue to be on the President's staff and will continue to see the President at least once a week. Dean Evans expressed concern that the reorganization could tend to isolate the students and their concerns from President Brady. This concern was echoed by ASWSC Academic Vice President Rick Southwick. Southwick said that he was concerned that since Dr. Smith already had a tremendous load, that this move would add to Smith's burdens and tend to further remove the students from President Brady. Southwick also said that it seemed as if the change was "contrary to President Brady's emphasis of placing students first" and that "student concerns could be lost in the shuffle." Dr. Smith responded to these concerns by saying that the President would not have made the decision if he thought it would adversely affect the students. Dr. Smith added that President Brady was committed to the students and would se to it that their needs are met. Dr. Smith also said that placing Dr. Evans on the Dean's Council would provid ample opportunity for any conflicts and concerns to be discussed and ironed out. New dean of Social Sciences named The executive committee of the Weber State College Institutional Council has approved a Texas man to become the new dean of social sciences July 1. Dr. J. Michael Orenduff, acting dean of liberal arts at Southwest Texas State University, will replace Dr. Larry Evans, who will step down from his post as dean to return to the classroom. Dr. Orenduff has taught at SWTSU since 1972. During that time he also served as chairman of the philosophy department as acting dean of liberal arts. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Tulane University, his M.A. from the University of New Mexico and his B.A. from the University of Texas. He has published papers in the field of metaphysics, mathematics, ethics and legal philosophy. He is also the co-author of the forthcoming book "Moral Conduct." He is also the editor of a philosophical journal and was the producer of an introductory humanities course for cable television. Dr. Orenduff was nominated for a statewide teaching award in Texas. Dr. Robert B. Smith, WSC vice president for academic affairs said, "I'm excited at the prospect of Dr. Orenduff's joining us at Weber State. He has established a record as one of the most effective instructors in the state of Texas, while teaching subjects relatively unpopular on most campuses." "He has also made real contributions as a scholar," he added, "but most of all I'm impressed with his reputation among those whom he has served as an administrator." Dr. Smith added, "He has talent for inspiring the best performance from faculty members."

|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.|
