Peer advisement funded by Kathy Kendell Gov't Affairs Reporter Weber State's student officers held their last meeting of the school year last Thursday afternoon. At the meeting, the lame duck officers approved funding the peer advisement program $4000. Dr. Richard Southwick, director of the counseling center, told the officers before the vote that the advisement program was one of the finest services offered by the counseling center. Dr. Southwick was pleased with the council's decision. "We're delighted with the response of the officers. The funding will allow us to continue the peer advisement program at its previous level of excellence and high quality," he said. The appropriation comes out of a surplus in the academic vice president's budget. However, the budget is contingent upon there being no deficits in the other ASWSC budgets. Currently, some budgets are in a deficit position, but this could change by the time budgets are closed. Until then the money will not be transferred. The Stewart Library also got a boost from the departing officers. The council gave final approval to an earlier proposal to take $15,000 from the defunct Student Services building budget and establish a trust fund for the library. The income received from the trust will be used to purchase periodical subscriptions for the library. In other action, ASWSC President Bruce Richeson announced that he had appointed an elections review committee which will be headed by political science professor Rod Julander. Several students were also appointed to the select committee. The committee will examine and review ASWSC's election process and bylaws and suggest improvements. This action was taken in light of the difficulties and problems encountered in the recent student election. The new officers elected in the recent election will assume their positions on Wednesday, June 1. Landers sisters cancel by Steve Largent Editor-in Chief Emeritus The Crystal Crest Awards program special guests, Audrey and Judy Landers, have cancelled their scheduled appearance at the event which will be held this coming Saturday. Crystal Crest planners were notified by the Landers sisters agent Friday morning that they would not be able to. make the appearance.The agent indicated that Audrey Landers had been booked at another event and would be unable to make the Weber State appearance. Judy Landers was still available to come, but she would not have been able to do the production numbers alone, that the sisters had been scheduled to perform. As a result, program organizers are attempting to book someone else to come to the first annual awards program. Grant Protzman, student government advisor, indicated that it is very difficult to find someone who can attend the program on such short notice. "We have been on the phone for quite awhile this morning trying to find out who is available," Protzman said. Program organizers hope to have a new star signed today. Late Friday, they were working with the agent for Toni Tennile, and she appeared to offer the best hope for program organizers. The Crystal Crest Awards program is still scheduled for this Saturday, June 4, at 7:30 pm in the Browning Center.

|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.|
