Friday, November 16, 1984 Weber State College Vol. 45 No. 14 r 'I- u Workmen from the Buildings and Grounds Department at Weber remove the light fixtures outside the Browning Center. Jack Price, electrical foreman, said the fixtures had to be removed so as to prevent injury. According to Price, the guidewires broke in the last heavy wind, and the fixtures would probably-fall if another rough wind sprang up. Price said there are plans to replace the fixtures with a different type so as to prevent this from hap pening again. Signpost photoMatthew Brown Reagan Has Chance To Reconstruct Court by Stephanie DeGraw Senior Reporter CBS legal reporter Fred Graham says that Reagan's landslide re-election will change the world of law, increase taxes and the national deficit, and compound the problem in Nicaragua. Graham addressed Weber State faculty and students Thursday during an ASWSC-sponsored convocation. "Reagan could reconstruct the Supreme Court in his own conservative image," said Graham. He said the majority of the Supreme Court members are 76 years or older. Reagan's philosophies will be reflected in future decisions of the Court's. Graham said Reagan's administration will push the Supreme Court to allow the mixing of church and state. "It's a thorny question when we begin expressing religion through the facilities of the state," said Graham. He indicated that it has already occurred on a local level. Graham explained that the Supreme Court will hear six cases this year involving church and state matters. "Never before have they heard so many in one year," said Graham. Cases to be reviewed include public funding for teachers to teach in parochial schools and setting aside a moment of silence for meditation or prayer. "If the moment of silence is passed, it could later lead to the reinstating of school prayer," said Graham. Another case facing the Supreme Court is the controversial issue of using tax dollars to pay for a Christmas nativity (manger) scene. Graham cited the example concerning members of the Jewish faith in Scarsdale, New York. They have asked the city council to ban the religious scene-from the town square. Graham said that this raises the question of granting religious requests to a minority, regardless of the faith of the majority. Concerning other issues facing the Court, Graham said, 'The Supreme Court have given signals that it will lower traditional barriers." For example, Graham said, "they will give states more elbow room." see "Revamp" on page 3. I : Fred Graham Council To Honor Prof. Melba Lehner by Kathy Kendell Staff Reporter The Weber State College Institutional Council voted last Wednesday, Nov. 13, to dedicate Weber's Childrens School in the name of Melba Lehner. Mrs. Lehner has worked at the college for 22 years and was instrumental in forming the child development and family studies programs. Mrs. Lehner came to Weber as a supervisor of the nursery school during World War II. "During the war, the day-care center at the college was one of the largest in the state," said Mrs. Lehner. After the war, she taught family relations at Weber and also worked with the Ogden City schools and their parent education program. In 1952 she bacame head of the Home Economics Department, as it was then known. The department later came to be known as the Department of Child Development and Family Studies. It is partly a child-care center for working mothers and a child development laboratory where students can gain practical and professional child care experience. "A student can earn a degree in child development and elementary education, which prepares them well for teaching children from nursery school to third grade," said Mrs. Lehner. When Mrs. Lehner first came to Weber, she taught a variety of classes; parenting, home management and family relations, to name a few. The children's school will be dedicated in Mrs. Lehner's name next Founders Day, May 3, and will take place in the Children's School. Tuition is going up again Regents Endorse Tuition Increase by Steve Fifield Senior Reporter A seven percent increase in tuition will become effective fall quarter, 1985. Students will also be required to pay a one-time surcharge of two percent of the total tuition. The seven percent tuition increase represents an extra $16 for WSC students beginning next year. According to Brad Howell, student regent from WSC, this is good news. Howell said that initially, the regents were going to raise tuition eight percent. He said, "It (the one percent decrease) was a great victory for students." Howell said the state-wide two percent tuition surcharge will result in $1.1 million for state colleges and universities. He said students will pay the surcharge, provided the Utah State Legislature matches those funds with $2.2 million. If the surcharge funds are generated, they are already earmarked for improvement of library holdings. Proposals will be considered by the legislature in January.

|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.|
