ASWSC Candidates Introduce Themselves To Studentbody by Rae Dawn Olbert Managing Editor and by Steve Fifield Senior Reporter Wednesday at noon the candidates running for ASWSC offices and assembled in the Union Building lobby for an informal "meet the candidates" question and answer session, at which a small sampling of the studentbody was present. Each candidate gave a short speech presenting their views on current campus issues, and then fielded questions from the audience. Sheldon Allred, current executive vice president and candidate for ASWSC president, said that "expanding the (student) senate to better represent the students," is one of his basic goals for next year. He plans to do this by "training the senators," and making them responsible for input at ASWSC legislative council meetings. Alkeds' opponent for the presidency is Jon, Southwick. Southwick's major goals are to unify student government and to be conservative with funds. He feels that ways of buying textbooks, other than through the bookstore, should be explored. ASWSC academic vice president hopeful Craig Jacobson feels that the students should have greater access to the senate. He also feels that student government needs to be more unified. Chris Judd, academic vice president candidate, said that the new system of government will have to be completely defined. One of his specific proposals is to keep the library open longer. Tina Walker, candidate for the office of executive vice president, feels that "next year is a trial year . . . we need to itemize responsibilities." She feels that there is a lack of high school and community representation. Jim Harvey, candidate for executive vice presi-see "Candidates" on page 3. Studentbody Can Vote For All 16 Senators by Steve Fifield Senior Reporter Yesterday the legislative council passed a resolution to change the voting format for the upcoming elections. Students will now be able to vote for all senatorial seats. The council felt that students being able to vote for one of the seven academic senators and one of the nine special constituencies was unfair.The council's reasoning was that student senators should first represent all WSC students, with their second responsibility being to represent their special constituency. Therefore, all students should be able to elect them. Dave Felt, senatorial candidate for the School of Arts and Humanities, was present at the meeting. Felt, who is running against a write-in candidate, brought up the point that no one will vote for a senate seat that they think is uncontested. Uncontested candidates are believed to be "shoe-ins." However, friends of the write-in candidate will pencil him in, thereby allowing the write-in to win with only a few votes. Brad Howell, ASWSC president, said he voted for the change because there would be no way to assure that students in certain schools and constituencies voted only for the senator that represents their interests, even with a computer list. He also said that the change would add to the ease of voting. T feel this is what we should move toward for next year," he said. The legislative council also ammended section seven, item E of the election by-laws. The ammend-ment will read: "In the event that a write-in candidate wins the contest for office (sic) he seeks he must, prior to being pronounced the winner, meet all qualifications and criteria included in the election by-laws, including filing fee ($40), full-time student matriculation, grade point average (2.5) and be free from infractions as determined by the election committee chair."

|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.|
