Weber State's Channel 9 Is Flooded Repeatedly Y 1 V Students taking TV production classes have had to find another classroom until the mess in the production studio Signpost photoBob George can be cleaned. These photos show the studio AFTER cleaning crews had already visited. VP by Mark Spencer Staff Reporter While many WSC students were enjoying summer fun in the sun, the TV studio in the Instructional Development Building was struggling to keep its equipment above water. Although the threat of flooding has been a problem for some time due to the overflowing of the storm drains, the worst disasters started hitting after the 24th of July. All cameras and other TV equipment were moved out of the studio. Not only has the water done damage to the tile and plaster, but incredible amounts of sand flows in with each flooding. There have been other problems as well. Land erosion has started outside the building, cement work has been done on sidewalks which have dropped over six inches and much of the dirt is continually shifting causing more problems. Larger pumps were installed, but did little to solve the problem. In some cases, janitors were cleaning the production studio up to three times a day until their patience grew thin and they refused to fight the flooding. State engineers have been called in, but this problem can not be acted upon at this time. The estimated funds needed to solve such a problem may run well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Bob King, of Instructional Development, said that watching the expensive television equipment has been a never-ending problem. At the present, no classes are being held in the studio for the television production students. Going Out Of Business: ASWSC Quits Concerts by Helen Volpe Staff Reporter "I feel that this approach to managing concerts and convocations will maximize the educational impact and will minimize the financial risks ," said ASWSC advisor Grant Protzman, commenting about the changes made in the concert and convocations series. Due to the loss in revenue last year, ASWSC will not be sponsoring a major concert artist, but agrees to co-sponsor events which will not create heavy financial obligations for them. "Our goal is to stay within our budget, and to bring in more of the revenue we need." Judy Hurst The convocations series is sponsored by ASWSC funds. "Our goal is to stay within our budget, and to bring in more of the revenue we need," said Judy Hurst, Student Activities Advisor. "The convocation series is a great educational tool . . . We hope faculty members recognize this great resource by encouraging their students to attend." Grant Protzman The convocations series, headed by chairman Michelle Ross, will be geared toward the academic side of campus life. Among the speakers scheduled are former Independant candidate for president, John Anderson, and James Hall. The convocations committee will also be utilizing some local people and outstanding Deans on campus. 'The convocations series is a great educational , tool," said Protzman. "We are able to bring in experts and authorities with significant experience and background that can substantially enhance the educational environment of this campus by utilizing a great resource. We hope faculty members recognize this great resource by encouraging their students to attend." Convocations will be held at the fine arts center from 12:40 to 1:40 each Thursday, with the exception of one on Monday, Nov. 5. Faculty members that have speakers or a topic they would like to see presented are encouraged to contact the Convocations Committee.

|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.|
