Peepers, flashers are a continuous problem by Rae Dawn Olbert Editor-in-Chief WSC police have received reports recently of peeping toms in the Swenson Gymnasium. Incidents like these, and others involving flashers, are not infrequent happenings at WSC, according to campus security. Dr. Richard Southwick, from the WSC counseling center, said there is no one reason for their actions; each person is different and cannot be stereotyped. Southwick said those who participate in these types of activities are mostly males who feel inferior to women in some way. He said in his experiences, many of them can relate their present actions to some traumatic experience from their childhood. They feel threatened by women, he said, and provoking a reaction from women through exposure provides them with a form of sexual stimulation. According to doctors from the Weber County Mental Health Clinic, those who peep are addicted to it. The important factor in their action is feeling safe while being able to stimulate themselves sexuallv. This reasoning applies also to phone callers. The peeper doesn't want the woman to be receptive. They put distance between the two parties, either before the action or immediately after. They feel inadequate and don't have much power in life or situations, so they create situations they can control. The doctors said most of the cases they help are sent to them from the courts. Unless they get caught and are referred by the courts, most who peep or expose themselves will not seek help. Southwick said this is because they do not perceive that they have a problem. Weber gains control of USA by Loretta Park News Editor Weber State's delegates to the Utah Student Association (USA) overturned the University of Utah's control last week. Jonathon Wright, ASWSC presidentelect, was elected president of the Utah Council of Studentbody Presidents. This council presides over the USA. Eleven colleges and universities throughout the state are members of the USA. J Todd Anderson, ASWSC president, was selected as one of the three nominees to be student regent next year on the Utah Board of Regents. Governor Norman H. Bangerter will make the final appointment. Anderson said he doesn't feel his chances are good to receive the appointment because Weber State has had "its fair share of student regents." The USA has been in existence for five years, and during that time, the president of the Utah Council of Studentbody Presidents has generally been from the University of Utah, said Anderson.

|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.|
