Using the correct startegy, according to Board of Regent member Hughes Brockbank, is essential. However, just what that correct strategy might be caused lively debate at the Regents' Tuesday morning meeting. All Regents were agreed on one thing; the importance of higher education joining forces with public education.The $150 million figure has been agreed upon after much discussion with public education officals. Regent chairman Ken Gardner says the figure is the outside limit of what education can expect from this legislature. The $ 150 million will be divided between higher and public education. The percentage each gets will be based on current appropriation ratios. Those ratios give higher education 28.3, with the other 71.7 going to the public education system. WSC President Rodney Brady expressed concern about this type of division. "Applying these figures, 28.3 of $150 million, is just over $42 million," he said. "Yet in the budget request itself, we ask for $50 million." This apparent contradiction did not bother chairman Gardner, who stated the display of unity in going with the $10 million figure is his primary concern. "We've worked on this figure for weeks. If we back off from it now, we would be sending the wrong signal to public education," said Gardner. The view echoed by board members is that the alliance between the two is essential in getting adequate funding. "We don't want to end up in a battle with public education. That is a battle we (higher education) have never won," said Regent Brockbank. Higher Education Commissioner Ar-vo Van Alstyne said, "Even the $150 million figure will not meet all education's needs. However it will meet the most urgent of those needs." Campus Health Center Hires New Head Nurse by Alajemba Udeagha Staff Reporter The WSC Health Center acquired a new X"- . ' .

The new head nurse is Juliana Larsen, 36, a 1969 graduate of the WSC Nursing program. Born and raised in Utah, Larsen worked for three years in the Coronary Care Unit of St. Benedict's Hospital, Ogden. Before her employment at WSC, Larsen worked for 11 years as the clinical staff nurse at the Intermoun-tain Indian School in Brigham City. While working in Brigham, Larsen earned her Family Nurse Practitioner's certificate. In addition, Nurse Larsen hopes to usher in a new set of training programs at the Health Center. According to Larsen, as soon as work is completed on the remodeling of the base ment of the Health Center Complex, the programs will take off. The new programs include training in first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, a fitness program for weight reduction, and aerobic exercises. Larsen said these programs would be free for faculty, staff and stduents of WSC. Larsen says working at the WSC Health Center has been great so far. "The staff and students here are the finest and most cooperative people I have ever worked with, and I wouldn't trade this job for any other," she said. All students at WSC with a student ID get free treatment for all services rendered at the Health Center. No insurance is required. Faculty members and other staff pay proportionally to the ?ervices they receive.

|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.|
