WEBER STATE-21 10 OGDEN 84408 TUESDAY, MAY 4, 1982 Vol. 42 No. 51 ASWSC holding budget hearings The ASWSC budget hearings for the academic year 1982-83 will continue May 3-7 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day in the ASWSC Legislative Council chambers, downstairs in the Union Building next to the ASWSC offices. The budgets to be discussed include the spending authorizations for the ASWSC officers, the AcademicSenate--which includes the activity budgets for the various Schools on campus, the ASWSC Public Relations budget, and the monies given by ASWSC to the college's fraternities and sororities. Also to be discussed will be the funding authorizations for the Weber State College student publications-including the Signpost, the yearbook and the literary magazine. According to Rick South wick, current ASWSC academic vice-president, "One of the major tasks of student govern- Japanese Week scheduled ment is to allocate student fees toward various programs. If students feel that their interests are not being represented, they need to come to the hearings and give their input. Without input, officers may lose perspective as to what the majority of students at Weber State want and need." Final budget decisions are expected to take place later in the week. However, the next few days will be spent discussing the proposed budget, with time allotted for the various groups involved to state their funding needs before the Legislative Council. The -Council will include the old-ASWSC officers as well as the recently elected members of student government.The budget hearings are open to the all students wishing to attend.

On April 9 of this year, the Weber State College Institutional Council approved a request from ASWSC to increase student fees by $3 a quarter, to $58 per student per quarter. The fees take on new meaning when the full Weber State enrollment of around 9,500 is considered. Part-time student's fees are calculated on a linear basis, with the full amount being paid for 10 credit hours or above. Student fees are levied on all students upon payment of tuition, are paid in addition to tuition, and are collected by the college cashier. Fees are used to fund student government, activities, social organizations and are used to pay off expenses such as the Union Building bond. This year's $3 increase followed in the wake of last year's $4 jump in fees. The breakdown of the $3 increase is as follows: $1.25 for a proposed student, services building; 25 cents for athletics; 85 cents for the Union Building;, 50 cents for instructional academic-related programs and 15 cents for intramurals and sports clubs. The proposed student services building would house all of the student services under one roof. Preliminary studies have been started, with choices ranging from the constructon of a new building to modification of an older one. "At present, the student services such as counseling, financial aid and job placement are scattered across the campus. We would like to put them all in one building for the student's convenience," said Bruce Richeson, ASWSC. executive vice president. The athletics department requested $2 in order , to comply with Title 9, which requires that men's and women's athletics receive equal funding. The 85 cents allotted to the Union Building will be used for upkeep and improvements.A student bond was issued for the construction of the Union Building, which included some maintenance costs. The bond will no longer cover the costs of maintenance, so additional funds were requested. Instructional academic-related programs, including debate, band and theater arts, will receive 50 cents in order to maintain its present program. Intramurals and sports clubs also requested 15 cents to maintain present programs. "All of the increases go to maintain present programs, with the exception of the student services building," said Grant Protzman, ASWSC student advisor.The breakdown of the present $55 student fee is $4.50 for student activities; $3 for instructional academic related programs; 25 cents for "Good Company"; 25 cents for the married student's day care center; $11.67 for athletics; $1 for convocations; $3 for health care; $5 for the Union Building and $26.33 for building fees, which include the Union Building, the Dee Events Center and the dormitories. , p.. & X" I 1 ' fir n The girls of La Dianaeda, taking part in Greek Week activities.

|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.|
