As the saying goes, "When you're hot you're hot, when you're not you're not." Such is the case with Weber State, only with Weber, even when you're cold, you're hot. Despite being ice cold from the field for Saturday's game, making only 4 of 16 field goals in the first half, Weber rallied to defeat defending champion Idaho in overtime to take sole possession of first place in the Big Sky. The win, Weber's fifth in a row, gives the 'Cats a 12 game lead over Nevada-Reno and Montana. A victory over Idaho State on Saturday will assure Weber of at least a tie for first place, and a chance to host the Conference Championships. Weber's record is now 10-3, followed by- Nevada-Reno and Montana at 9-3. With Idaho's two losses they fall to 8-5 and are eliminated from the race. This is also the first time in over two years that Idaho has lost back to back conference games. see 'Big Sky standings' on pg. 1 1 Photo by Jeffery Bybee Randy Worster gets an 'extra boost' from an Idaho player on his way up for two points in Saturday night's exciting game.

ASWSC election time Campus prepares for student elections by Steve Largent It is once again time for the annual ASWSC student body elections. While it may seem like just yesterday that the campus found itself covered with paper posters, it has in reality been almost a year. So, everyone, get yourselves ready for another campaign. Those desiring to run for a student body officer position are required to pick up a petition from the ASWSC secretary after 8 a.m. today. Completed petitions are to be returned to the ASWSC secretary by 4 p.m. on March 17. A filing fee of $40 will be required at the time the completed petitions are turned in. At the conclusion of the campaign, $20 of the filing fee will be refunded if the candidate cleans up all of their campaign material. A meeting for all candidates and their campaign managers will be held at 7 a.m. on March 28 in the student activities center. Campaigning for all offices will begin on April 4, also at 7 a.m. If necessary, primary elections will be held on April 12 and 13, and the voting in the final election is scheduled for April 19 and 20. Offices up for election include student body president, and the following vice-president positions: academic, executive, student-services, activities, public rela tions and cultural. In addition, there are seven positions open in the ASWSC Academic Senate, one from each of the seven schools on campus. To be eligible for a student senate position, a student must have a declared major in the school that they are seeking to represent in the senate elections. Students in need of further information or with questions, should contact Mike Ash worth, elections chairman, in the ASWSC offices. In a surprise announcement, Rick Southwick, former ASWSC academic vice-president and current member of the Utah State Board of Regents, stated that he will not be a candidate for student body president. Southwick had received encouragement to run and had been considered by most observers to be front runner. His withdraw! throws the race for student body president wide open. With Southwick declining to run, Brad Howell is presently the only student with an expressed interest in the president's position.Southwick cited time demands and his desire to finish school as the prominent reasons for his declining to seek student office. Several names have been mentioned as possible candidates for the various vice-presidents positions, but the final names will not be known until March 17.

|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.|
