High school students compete Susan Fishburn News Editor Thursday, Nov. 13, 190 high school students will converge on Weber State College to compete in the Buick WSC Automotive Contests. The prize is a brand new 1987 Buick Park Avenue. The competition, sponsored by Buick and the automotive department at WSC, is unique in the nation in terms of the number of students participating. "There isn't a contest, even on a national level, with this many students involved," Rondo Erickson, head of the automotive engineering technology program at WSC, said. The students will come from high schools from Bountiful to Logan. Thirteen schools in all will be part of the contest. "The goal of the contest is to make high school students aware of the program at Weber," Erickson said. Arrangements were made for the prize by Erickson while in Flint, Michigan, earlier this year. The automotive department works closely wih dealerships and manufacturers in the automotive industry. In the contest this week, high school teams will take a written test that will narrow the competition down to five teams. The finalists will return to Weber on Dec. 18 to "trouble shoot" five cars that have identical "buss."

(Signpost pholo: Scott Miller) Senate commits to rally support JaNae Barlow Managing Editor Yesterday, the ASWSC senate passed a resolution committing each senate member to lead a group of students to the rally at the State Capitol next Monday.The demonstration will be quite impressive, said Grant Protzman, ASWSC advisor. With a goal of 10,000 students attending the demonstration from Utah's colleges and universities, he said he didn't believe more than 1,200 people had ever demonstrated at the capitol on any issue, including polygamy and the Vietnam war. The demonstration is an effort to force the Utah governor, Norman H. Bangerter and the legislature, to respond to the need to ensure a quality education program in the future, said Brian Palfreyman, ASWSC student lobbyist. The Weber group is planning to leave the college at 2:30 p.m. for the event which begins at 3:30 p.m. They are expecting to return to the college around 6 p.m. Alternatives for busing are currently being worked on by Kevin Bell, ASWSC senator for non-traditional students and coordinator of the collegeeffort. To volunteer for the demonstration, students can sign up Thursday, during Open Hour in the U.B. lobby. Also on the agenda, was the abolishment of the Association of Registered Organizations, A.R.O., constitution; approval of a loan for the Weber chapter of National Association of Home Builders, N.A.H.B.; and approval of a Library Improvement Bill. "The A.R.O. constitution is currently different than the standard operating procedure," said Aaron Thatcher, A.R.O. president, when requesting the abolishment of the constitution. The senate passed a proposal stating that Thatcher would have a new charter for the organization ready for approval in the January 5 meeting. The proposal also stated that the senate would be the functioning body that would deal with any problems dealing with the constitutionality of any actions taken by A.R.O. in the interum before the new charter is passed. Rules were suspended so as to allow the senate to vote on the issue at yesterday's meeting. This was done so that a loan requested by N.A.H.B. could also be considered at the meeting. The senate approved the loan for $1,750 to N.A.H.B. to secure airline tickets and motel accommodations for their trip to a national convention in January. The money is to be paid back in full by January 31. Currently A.R.O. policy sets a maximum for loans at $500, but based on the earlier vote concerning the A.R.O. constitution, the senate passed the resolution for the loan. The senate also passed a resolution placing money collected through the 1985-'86 tuition surcharge be deposited in an interest bearing account. The income from the fund will be used to purchase and renew periodical titles, and in other appropriate ways, to support library development. Also in the resolution was a commitment that ASWSC will continue to support library development by sponsoring projects and programs in the future.

|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.|
