Miss Indian WSC Relinquishes Crown by Joan Wilcox Editorial Advisor Jane Jackson, who was crowned Miss Indian Weber State College in a ceremony April 28, 1984, has resigned her office due to ineligibility. Cordelia Abel, crowned first attendant in that same ceremony, has been appointed as the new Miss Indian Weber State College. Jackson's ineligibility came to the attention of the WSC Native American Council via an anonymous tip called into the Signpost office. The caller indicated that Jackson is not a full-time WSC student. Upon investigation through Dean of Students-Darnel Haney's office, it was discovered by the Signpost and by the Native American Council that Jackson is in fact not listed as a registered Weber State student. Haney said that he spoke briefly to Jackson after her ineligibility was discovered, and Jackson told Haney that she was a student. Haney, however, said that no official record can be found to support Jackson's statement. According to Haney, the Native American Council asked Jackson for her resignation last Friday, but a formal letter of resignation has not been filed. Haney said that as a result of this incident, which he stressed did not reflect badly on the Native American Council or the Miss Indian WSC pageant, applicants in next year's program will be more carefully screened. Haney indicated that at the present time an honor system is in effect and it has worked well in the past. He noted, however, that this system will be subject to review. Cordelia Abel, chairman of the Native American Council and the New Miss Indian WSC, refused comment. Marcia Galli, advisor to the Native American Student Organization, also refused comment, except to say that Jackson's ineligibility was beyond the control of the organization. by Rae Dawn Olbert Managing Editor Weber State College turned 95 years old this year. Founders' Day, held the first Friday in May each year, is the day set aside to wish WSC a happy birthday. Faculty, administration and students gathered last Friday to celebrate WSC's birthday and to honor Drs. Lorenzo E. Peterson and Lawrence C. Evans. The plaza located between Buildings 3 and 4 and the Engineering Technology Building was dedicated to Peterson in a ceremony presided over by President Rodney H. Brady. A respected academic and community leader, Peterson served in numerous capacities at Weber State including assistant director of vocational education, supervisor for war production training, president of the faculty, director of evening school and chairman of vocational education. During his tenure at the college, he was instrumental in organizing and developing nationally recognized vocational and technical education programs and directed legislative efforts which resulted in the college gaining four-year status. At the Founders' Day Luncheon, Dr. Lawrence C. Evans was presented with the H. Aldous Dixon Award. This honor recognizes current members of the faculty and staff who have distinguished themselves by the highest professional standards of excellence. Evans joined the WSC faculty in 1946 and since that time has served as professor of philosophy, chairman of the Department of Political Science and Philosophy, and Dean of the School of Social Sciences. He has many professional achievements and is a member of many professional organizations. He is an accomplished journalist and has served as a faculty advisor to WSC student publications. Although WSC was officially 95 years old on January 7, it's birthday is celebrated on the first Friday in May to assure that the weather will allow for numerous activities and that they will be well-attended. Founders' Day is traditionally sponsored by the WSC Alumni Association. Founded in 1889 by the LDS Church as a high school, WSC was first named the Weber Stake Academy and classes were held in the Ogden Second Ward meeting house. Renamed Weber Normal College in 1916, Weber added two years of college classes, and in 1923 dropped the hich school curriculum to become a junior college. Upon becoming a four-year college on May 14, 1963, Weber State College was given its present name. Eddy Hester, director of alumni relations, said the Founders' Day activities were well-attended and that the recipients of the awards were pleased with the presentations.

|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.|
