Where do you fit in at WSC? Take a look at life at Weber in the Signature section, starting on page 8. Friday, January 18, 1985 Weber State College 45 No.24 1 Pres. Brady Opts For New VP: Search Is Underway by Rae Dawn Olbert Managing Editor WSC President Rodney H. Brady has announced the addition of a new vice president for student affairs to the administration. Brady chose to create a new vice president after considering several proposals from various campus groups and organizations. One of the proposals was to consolidate student affairs under the direction of Academic Vice President Robert Smith. As the student affairs office now stands, many of the various student services come under the administration of Smith, with Dr. Jerald Storey, vice president for business affairs and Dean Hurst, vice president for college relations, directing the remaining services. In a memo to WSC faculty and staff, Brady said he had consulted with a number of his colleague presidents throughout the nation in making his decision. He- said, "The basic reason for the change is I want to get closer to the students and have the advantage of having an independent voice of the students expressed in the top councils of the college." The student affairs office includes student government, student organizaton, activities, student housing, food service, the counseling center, student discipline, student health services, career placement and counseling and services for special student groups such as international students, the physically challenged and re-entry students. The new vice president will oversee each of these. Smith said he does not feel strongly one way or the other about the new position. He said he realizes the president had a broader range of issues, such as off-campus relations, to consider when making his decision, whereas Smith had fewer factors to consider. Smith said, "It is incumbent upon me to work with the new vice president to see that we get the student services we need." He feels one of his and the new vice president's major goals is "better integration of the (student services) program." He said that the success of the new vice president will depend on who is chosen. Brady looks to fill the position from a campus source before considering off-campus applicants. Applicants for the position will be evaluated on: personal integrity, skill in leading, managing and motivating other people, ability to function with peer executives, skill in assisting students to visualize and achieve their greatest potential and a demonstrated comprehension of, and commitment to, student affairs functions, to name a few. Brady said he hopes to fill the position by July 1, 1985. - I 4 Stgnposl photoMatthew Brown Larry Linville came to Wcbcr State yesterday as part of "Festivention," a theater program being hosted by WSC's Theater Department. M A S H Star Delights Record Crowd by Chris Larsen Entertainment Editor A record crowd of over 1500 students, faculty and community members attended a special convocation yesterday afternoon with guest speaker Larry Linville. Larry Linville, better known to the world as Major Frank 'ferret face' Burns of the hit television series MASH, spoke in the Browning Center to the near-capacity crowd as part of the "Festivention" program, hosted by the WSC Theater Department. The actor delighted the crowd when he did his well-known Frank Burns laugh. Linville spoke about his life and the events that led him to perform the character Major Frank Burns. Linville said that by speaking about his life story he could "give an example of decision-making and the results of those decisions." Linville explained why he left the hit series MASH. "I was burned out. Five years of my life were gone." Linville said he had done an equivalent of 32 full-legnth movies in his time with MA SH. He said he had gone through two divorces in four see "Linville" on page 5. Regents Convene: WSC On Agenda Editor's Note: For the benefit of our readers, the Signpost will publish a series of articles examining certain influential groups and committees that affect Weber State College in some way. Following is an article explaining what the Utah State Board of Regents is and how it affects Weber State College. Future issues will examine the Institutional Council, faculty senate and area councils. by Scot Parry Staff Reporter "The Board of Regents is the governing board for all higher education in the state of Utah," said Dr. Rodney H. Brady, president of Weber State College. "As such, they have the constitutional authority to exercise all powers, with respect to the institutions of higher education." The board consists of 15 businessmen and women, the lieutenant governor and a student representative. The student representative for this academic year is Brad Howell, former ASWSC president.The state senate must approve everyone except the student member, who serves a one-year term. Regents are appointed for six-year terms, which are staggered so that one third of the board is replaced every two years. This replacement takes place on the odd year, usually in the month of July. A regent may be reappointed to his position. One of the duties of the Regents is to select presidents for the state's colleges and universities. On Friday, Jan. 18, the Utah State Board of Regents will hold its monthly meeting at Utah Technical College in Salt Lake. Standing committee meetings will begin at 9 a.m. and the general meeting will run from 10-12:30 p.m. see "Regents" on page 3.

|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.|
