The event was the formal dedication of the many computer labs across campus funded through student fees.The funds generated in the past years were matched with funds from the Utah State Legislature. WSC President Stephen D. Nadauld officially cut the ribbon, and later stated, "our goal is not to have lots of equipment, unused by the students. Getting the students to use the equipment is what the system is all about." Other state leaders, including Representatives Karras and Black also participated in the event.

"We show that students are interested in their education. .."by committing student fees to such causes, said Robinson.

WSC debate team sees early success Tanja Schaffer Senior Reporter The Weber State College debate team started its new season this year with a 16-school scrimmage at the University of Utah during the last weekend of September. The division of debate participated in was NDT (National Debate Tournament). Targeted was a resolve that the U.S. should reduce substantially its military commitment to NATO neighbor states. In the varsity division, Darwin McCollough and Lisa Johnson took third place with 4-2 in the preliminaries. They lost to California La Verne College in the semi-finals. In the junior varsity category, Matt Stanward placed first as individual speaker. John Peebles took third. As a team, Stanward and Peebles placed first, but were defeated in the finals by ASU. On Oct. 2-5, the debate team split for the first time to cover eastern and western tournaments in an effort to give Weber more exposure. One team participated at Vanderbilt University in Nashville Tenn. and the other competed at the University of Wyoming in Larnie. NDT was the division at Vanderbilt and is one of two of the hardest tournaments in the country. Tony Justman placed second as individual speaker out of 160 participants, and Jim Summers received a 5-3 win in preliminaries. They defeated Kansas 3-0 in the Octa final, and eventually lost to Dartmouth 2-1. Tournament judge Dirk Gibson, assistant professor at Augusta College in Georgia, said, "I believe that the Weber State team of Tony Justman and Jimmy Summers is certainly among the top five teams in the country." In Wyoming, the division of debate was CEDA (Cross Examination Debate Association). The current topic resolves that continued U.S. involvement in Central America would be undesirable. In this tournament, Jac Cordelia and Brent Mair received 3-3 in preliminaries. They didn't advance. Lorie Foster and Neil Hollands got a 4-2 in preliminaries, but lost in quarters (2-1) to Pacific Lutheran. "I used to like the topic," said Hollands, "but, the issue is dying out now, so it's making it hard to debate." "How dare they make a peace plan and mess up our debating," laughed one debater. Heidrich is excited about the success the team has achieved. "The team is a lot better this year. No one graduated last year, and everyone is back," he said. "We've also added some very good freshmen. Overall I think there is much larger enthusiasm on the team." Weber State's next debate will be the next challenge prior to Thanksgiving. This tournament will be he'd at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, which is the other hardest tournament in the country, according to Heidrich.

|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.|
