Willden has been appointed as chair of the HPER (Health, Physical Education, Recreation) Department. He will replace Dr. Myron W. Davis, who has served as the department chair for the past six years. Davis will return to the classroom. Willden, who will assume the chair fall quarter, has been at Weber eight years, teaching many outdoor recreation classes. As department chair, he will continue to teach the games and games leadership course, saying he simply cannot let it go. "My only reluctance in accepting the position is I'm going to have to give up the trails and rock climbing," said Willden. He said he gets his greatest satisfaction in teaching in the outdoors. "I see this new experience to be worthwhile . . . as a whole," he said, explaining it isn't realistic for him to try and maintain his current level of activity forever. Willden hopes to help the faculty with issues concerning the HPER Department, and help them to remain current and up-to-date in their fields. He said part of his responsibilities as department chair will include faculty evaluations and facilitating department progress and change. "Doing this on the budget limitations will be a significant challenge," he said. Willden said his three-year chair term might see the beginning of a new edition to the gymnasium. It has been in the planning stages for years but this year it appears to be more hopeful. He said if the Utah State Legislature appropriates the funds, he will be very busy. Willden received his EdD. at the University of Utah in recreation and leisure, his Master's in community education in Brigham Young University and his Bachelor of Science in recreation education from Brigham Young University. Willden is a member of various professional organizations in his field, including the Utah Mountaineering Association. He also belongs to the group, Clowns of America, as "Lupo T. Clown," and is a member of the International Jugglers Association. ASWSC implements short-term loans for students short on cash by Rae Dawn Olbert Editor-in-Chief ASWSC Executive Vice President Craig Jacobsen announced that short-term loans will be available to WSC students beginning fall quarter, 1985. Jacobsen said the program will be administered by ASWSC, with help from the financial aids office, and will have a loan base of $10,000, with up to $50,000 held in reserve. The reserve would be used to possibly increase the base or, if needed, cover situations of students defaulting on their loans. "I feel many students will take advantage of the program," said Jacobsen. He said minority and non-traditional students, many of whom receive grants at a date later than registration, will benefit from the program.The idea for short-term loans came when Jacobsen heard about another school that utilized a student loan pro gram. Feeling that Weber could benefit from this type of program, Jacobsen's office conducted an in-depth study to evaluate the- idea. Jacobsen said they went to many different areas on campus, including the credit union and financial aids, to get an idea of the need of such a program. Jacobsen said this program will help ASWSC to be more "in-touch" with student financial needs and will also allow student government to work with the financial aids office. Students who are interested in applying for a short-term student loan must meed the following criteria: (1) Must register or be registered for at least six credit hours. (2) Must be matriculated and have attended the previous quarter (summer or spring if loan is in the fall) and must have two quarters left to graduate-present quarter inclusive. Must have a GPA of 2.0. (3) Loans shall be for not less than $50 and not to exceed $400. (4) Student will have a payback period of 90 days. (5) If delinquent, all student's records will be put on hold pending payment in fall. (6) Student will fill out appropriate paperwork with financial aids. (7) Student may have only one loan out at a time. If student was delinquent on a previous ASWSC loan, stu dent is ineligible for any further ASWSC loan. (8) There will be no interest charged, but there will be a small loan generation fee. (9) If the student has not established residency, he must have a co-signer who meets the criteria and would be liable for payment in the case of default.

|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.|
