Vol. 44 No. 60 Thursday, June 28, 1984 u u Student Senate Ok's ASWSC Budget by David C. Wright News Editor The student senate recently completed formal hearings on the proposed ASWSC budget for the upcoming year. The budget's primary authors were the newly' elected executive branch of student governmentpresident Jon Southwick, academic vice president Craig Jacobsen and executive vice president Tina Walker. . . ' According to Craig Jacobsen, the major change to the budget was the senate increase to its own operating budget. The senate also changed a proposal that would have come out of ASWSC funds. Jacobsen said that a new computer system is going to be implemented this year that will help student government operate more efficiently. The senate voted to fund this system from a capital improvement budget rather than from the ASWSC funds. Jacobsen said that while the senate and executive stipends were increased, the total amount in compensation has been decreased by just over $2000. Jacobsen said that the budget is in force, but added that it is "a projected budget, because we don't know how much we have until we get the fees in." " A budget deficit of $10,000 from last year had to be covered before proper allocations could be made for next year. Jacobsen said that the deficit was incurred through ASWSC sponsored concerts. Last year, according to Jacobsen, $10,000 was allocated for concerts, but this year no money has been given for concerts because of the huge losses incurred last year. "As far as we're concerned, ASWSC is out of the concert business. Someone, can still come in and do a concert, it's just that ASWSC will not be responsible for it. There has been only one year in ASWSC's history that anyone ever made money on concerts," said Jacobsen. Jacobsen added that student government is not able to compete with professional promoters. Jacobsen said that money has been allocated for leadership conferences for. ASWSC officers. The dollar figures indicate a 39 percent increase, but 40 percent more people are being included. "People should realize that it's (leadership training) not a negative thing. There are a lot of things that ASWSC can do for students on campus," said Jacobsen. "There are many issues that they can have an impact on. Most students don't realize that, but you can't have an impact if you're not an effective person. This leadership conference has been very effective in training student leaders." Jacobsen said that the $8,000 allocation for the leadership conference isn't a lot of money when compared to a $170,000 budget. Jacobsen said that the money is well-spent. Other changes from last year's budget highlighted by Jacobsen include the Crystal Crest Awards Program and more advertising by student government. Jacobsen said that the Crystal Crest Awards Program "has the potential to become one of the biggest events on campus." He said that "positive feedback" came from other campuses and board of regent members, as well as many others. Jacobsen said that in his opinion Crystal Crest is improving and will continue to improve. The figures produced by Jacobsen showed that last year's Crystal Crest went over its projected budget by nearly $5,000. This year's figures show that $15,800 has been allocated for the program. see "Budget" on page 2. Weber State football coach, Mike Price, has been holding his fourth football camp this past week.

Signpost photos by Matthew Brown 3575 Students Spend Summer At Weber by Jean Browning Staff Reporter The lazy days of summer just relaxing and working on a tan or working to earn the money to go back to school in the fall. But, not so lazy for some 3500-odd students at Weber State College this summer. About 3575 students began summer quarter last week, compared to 3672 students last summer. Dr. Emil Hanson, assistant vice president for academic services, said that about 700 students pre-registered for summer quarter, with the rest registering on June 15, or else they waited until last week with the added expense of a late fee. The registrar's office says, there were steady lines during registration but that they went fairly quickly. Hanson says there are a variety of reasons students opt to attend summer quarter -claims of easier classes, the shorter summer session (eight weeks instead of ten), students trying to graduate in less than four years or not being able to find a summer job are the main reasons. Some of the summer quarter students attend other colleges or universities during the regular school year and will have credit earned from classes at Weber State transferred to the institution they attend.Weber State offered 824 classes this summer compared to 799 last year, an increase of 25 classes. According to Hanson, classes in math, science, English and general education are those that usually close first in the summer. The smaller number of summer students this year showed up in a 25 percent decline in the total number of applications for this summer quarter. This could be a forecast for fall quarter applications. The administration wants enrollment up by at least 500 more full-time students this fall. This may prove unattainable since a smaller number of students graduated from high school this year and the number of freshmen who have applied to Weber for fall quarter is down 38 percent.

|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.|
