ASWSC budget hearings continue ASWSC, faced with a cutback in revenue for the 1982-83 school year, has been conducting budget hearings all this week. The hearings are scheduled to conclude today. Revenue projections are down about $16,000 from the revenue collected during the 1981-82 school year. Projected revenue totals about $130,000. This is the amount of unalloted funds available to ASWSC to distribute among the various ASWSC vice presidents, the academic senate, campus organizations, concerts, student publications and other projects funded by ASWSC. The revenue projection is based on the projected enrollment for the upcoming school year. This figure is computed by the administration. ASWSC cannot allocate more funds than the revenue projections allow for. It is possible that additional revenue could be collected if the enrollment projections turn out to be low. ASWSC has been forced to look closely at its budget and make some cuts in funding to the different areas. The budget hearings are held in the legislative council room in the ASWSC offices located in the Union Building. Students are encouraged to attend and give their input as to how they want their fee money spent. The dedication of the Farrell R. Collett Art Building and the awarding of the Dixon Award to Dean Hurst highlighted this year's Founder's Day activities at Weber State College.Both events took place April 30 as the college celebrated its 93rd birthday. During the day's activities the a.rt building on campus was officially designated the Farrell R. Collett Art Building by the WSC Institutional Council in a ceremony that took place outside the art building. Farrell Collett was present for the ceremony, as well as college officials and many of his former students. Collett started the present art department at Weber College in 1939 on the old campus in downtown Ogden as a one-man department. He was chairman of that department for 30 years. He has exhibited numerous paintings both abroad and throughout the U.S. and Canada, and has served as an instructor for many current artists. Many spoke highly of him as an instructor and an individual during the ceremony, prompting Collett to say, "I think I know how Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn felt when they listened to their own funeral from the back of the church." Collett said that he did not intend to go into teaching when he first started his art career. His initial exposure to teaching came when he agreed to teach on a subsitute basis. Soon, he entered teaching full-time. "Life has been good to me," he said, adding, "Most of the important things that have come to me have just happened." His efforts were instrumental in the building of the present art building when the college's campus moved to its present location on Harrison Boulevard. Rodney H. Brady, president of Weber State, said of Collett, "When students pass by and see the name of this building, I hope they will spend time to learn the measure of the man that is the namesake of this building." In addition to the dedication of the art building, Dean Hurst, vice president of college relations at WSC, received the H. Aldous Dixon Award in recognition of service to the college. Hurst came to Weber State in 1967 and has since carried out numerous assignments under three different college presidents. He has had responsibility for directing the college's news bureau, publications, alumni relations, cultural affairs, college development, athletics, the Dee Events Center, the Browning Fine Arts Center and campus security. Following the presentation of the award. Hurst said, "nothing has been more dramatic on the impact of the community than the founding of Weber Stake Academy, as it was then called." Hurst is the 13th recipient of the award. Greek Week produces casualty by Jim Konkol Signpost staff A bizarre incident marred Greek Week activities on Tuesday during the bathtub races. Linda Adams, a member of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority, was injured during the race when she slipped and fell into an oncoming bathtub "driven" by one of the opposing teams, Lambda Delta Sigma sorority. Linda was taken across the street to McKay-Dee hospital were she received stitches in her hand. She attended school Wednesday, apparently none the worse for wear. Last year, during the same event, a member of the Otyowka sorority fell out of her bathtub and received scrapes and bruises. The bathtub races were immediately cancelled following the accident. Perhaps it's true that most accidents occur in, or under, the bathtub. Today is the last day to withdraw from classes a - IX t t Tf . ft 1 V- " . J v : . - .

|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.|
