New officers announced for next year JaNae Barlow Managing Editor The 1987-88 Weber State College studentbody officers were announced Friday at 10:30 p.m. at the Mardi Gras held in the LIB Gallery. The new executive officers include Ron Robinson, president; Dave Terry, academic vice president; and Lisa Ellis, executive vice president. The student senate for next year will be comprised of Chad Waldron, natural science; Mike Syme, technology; Jim Puffer, social science; Dori Stauffer, traditional students; Thomas Lakey, non-traditional students; Don Guthrie, physically challenged students; Michael Butler, arts and humanities; Steve Deem, business; Cliff Passey, general studies; Randy Bateman, RHA; Jerry Richardson, allied health; and Julie Dunn, education. Also included in the senate are three write-in candidates. The three were announced Friday night; however, they won't be made official until their eligibility can be established. These three include Nicolas Bolano, international students; Kimberlene Butler, black students; and Enambano Zapatta (sic), Hispanic students. About 10 percent of the students voted in the election for a total of 1 ,380. Of those who voted, 982 were traditional students and 259 were non-traditional.More freshmen voted than any other class with 364 votes. Sophomores had 287, with juniors at 289. There were 337 seniors who voted. In interviews afterward, all three of the elected executive officers said they view next year's activities with optimism."I'm looking forward to the next few weeks when we will be able to recruit applicants for student government positions for next year," Robinson said. "Dave, Lisa and I have a lot of good ideas and energy, and I feel we will have good chemistry in next year's student government." Terry said he is excited because of the student involvement and all the new recruits. "I am especially excited because of the people that were elected." "All of those who have been elected and all those who are involved are sharp people," Ellis said. She said she feels the three new officers work well together. Inside... LSD 1 u I i V 1 t I ! i s ?

Donna Brown Contributing Writer Should college and university students pay a user's fee above quarterly student fees for campus health services? Weber State College Student Health Director Juliana Larsen said no. She feels students are overcharged for too many campus services. She said by charging a user's fee, the service would be less beneficial to some students. Southern Utah State College Student Health Director Kay Messerly feels a minimum user's fee is not only appropriate, but in her case, necessary. "I think that students need to learn to be responsible for their health. By charging the students for services they receive, they are learning to be responsible," she said. She added, "The fees we charge are used to cover the cost of supplies that particular services require. I couldn't replace my supplies without that money." The WSC Health Center currently operates on 4.79 percent of student fees. Larsen said $3.80 per student per quarter is earmarked for the center. In the April 2, 1987 edition of the Signpost, it was announced that the WSC health center's quarterly student fee allotment would decrease $.23 from $3.80 to $3.57 per student for a total yearly budget of $115,400. This yearly budget figure is the same as this year's budget. The total is maintained by an increase in enrollment. More students will be paying less but will maintain the same total. In comparison, Southern Utah State College's Health Center runs on an operating budget of $38,000. The funds in the past were drawn on SUSC's general college fund instead of on money drawn from student fees. Messerly said, "Next year, our projected budget will be covered for the most part by student fees of $2.50 per student per quarter. Should the fees not meet the services budget requirements, the college's general fund will make up the difference." Although Weber State has a student-body of 10,000 to 11,000 students compared to SUSC's 2,600, the centers serve about the same number of people on a day-to-day basis. SUSC serves 5 to 10 more students per day. During winter quarter 1987, WSC's Health Service served 1,056 students. During the same time SUSC's Service saw 1,293 students. WSC's center averages 20 students per day. "Our amount of users has in-(see HEALTH on page 3) !

|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.|
