O Weber State College Summer Get in the know and see what's "in" for fall fashion; the Signature's the place. See page 6. Vol. 44 No. 66 Thursday, August 9, 1984 u u Howell Appointed To Utah State Board Of Regents by Jean Browning Staff Reporter Brad Howell, who was recently appointed by Governor Scott Matheson as the student representative on the Utah Board of Regents, didn't think he would have much of a chance of being chosen when he decided to apply for the position. The reason was that the representative two years ago, Rick Southwick, was also from Weber State. Howell says that while there's nothing to preclude a candidate from being chosen from the same school within a year or two's time, he believes the governor tries to choose representatives from different schools throughout the state. Last year's student representative was from Utah State University and only one person from that school chose to apply this year out of about eleven from around the state. Howell, who was studentbody president of Weber State College during the 1983-84 school year, was one of three finalists for the highly regarded position. Howell and the other two finalists, both from the University of Utah, were chosen by the Council of Studentbody Presidents. Those three finalists were then interviewed by Governor Matheson, who then made the final choice. In his interview with Matheson, Howell believes his opinion on policies regarding such issues as tuition and curriculum may be similar to Matheson's and for that reason may have influenced the governor's choice. In past years the governor chose from the finalists without having interviews with them. Brad Howell There is no specific criteria used in choosing the student representative to the Board of Regents, according to Howell, but the person picked must have had some experience and knowledge of higher education issues. Howell spent many hours as studentbody president working to further student interests. His past experience and achievements make him well qualified for the position and should help him do an excellent job representing the interests of students 1 r t & air 4 I,, .4 3 - 4 - 4 L WSC students from Larry Stahle's Communications 235 class (graphics) took a tour of Church Printing Services in Salt Lake City last Thursday.

In addition to serving as studentbody president, he served as vice president to the Council of Studentbody President s last year, held the position of senator from the school of social science in 1982-83 and was the LDSSA vice president that same year. He is on the National Dean's List and is listed in the Outstanding Young Men of America Society. Howell is a political science major with one year left to complete his degree. He is used to working under pressure, as he holds down a part-time job in addition to his studies and student obligations. The Utah State Board of Regents is responsible for making decisions concerning higher education. They deal with curriculum requests, tuition and budgetary matters, as well as other education related issues. The recent decision to grant Weber State a master's program in accounting came from the Regents. The board meets monthly, usually for two days at a time, according to Howell. The September meeting will deal with budget approvals for the 1984-85 school year. Howell is excited about his new position on the board and feels privileged to be a part of it. He says it's a once in a lifetime experience and he's glad he's been given the opportunity. Howell says the aspect of the board that has most impressed him is the expertise and understanding of issues affecting the different schools in Utah. He says the board members are really concerned and informed about Utah education and he's glad to be a part of it. Olympic Games Are Winding Down by Steve Spafford Asst. Sports Editor LOS ANGELES -As the Olympic Games begin winding down to a climactic close this weekend, it can be said that Los Angeles' production of the XXIII Olympiad has been a rousing success. The people of Los Angeles have gone out of their way to make all of the Olympic visitors feel welcome. They adjusted their working hours to help ease their traffic congestion around the primary Olympic sights. There have still been some minor delays and problems with traffic but nothing like the wall to wall traffic jams that were foreseen by some. Most of the credit for the successful production of the Games should be given to Peter Uberroth, chairman of the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee (LAOOC). Uberroth did a masterful job utilizing and organizing all of the resources that were available to him. The enthusiasm for the Games that were generated by the Olympic torch being run through almost every state was one of his many profitable ideas. And he has had many because these Games are being put on at no cost to the tax payer and will probably net the LAOOC a nice profit. The people of Canada are still paying for the Montreal Olympics of 1976. But it's the people of Los Angeles that are making these Olympics successful.The crowds at the various stadiums have been very receptive to all of the athletes that are performing. Of course, the American athletes are receiving see "Olympics" on page 2.

|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.|
