i jCl m 'yiiiM ji jL .! Monday, April 24, 1989 Weber State College Volume 49 Number 67 Alvey, Hamilton, Fifield to be next year's executive officers By Jill Titensor Managing Editor Results of the 1989 ASWSC Elections were announced at the Kokomo elections party and dance held in the Union Building ballroom Saturday night. The dance began at 6 p.m and the announcement was scheduled for 10 p.m. Candidates were anxiously awaiting the information known only to the elections committee, as voting closed at 1 p.m. Friday. . And the winners are . . . Lane Alvey, president; Dionne Hamilton, academic vice president; and Jill Fifield, executive vice president. "I don't think it's sunk in yet," Alvey said. "I really don't." Hamilton had a similar response. "Reality has not set in yet," she said. "I'm excited, I'm happy, and I'm ready to go to work. I've got lots of things to do The first thing is to go to class. My teachers will be so glad to see me." "A lot of preparation went into this," Hamilton said, reflecting on her campaign. "I'm glad the students made an educated choice." Next year's executive vice president, in addition to being "so excited," expressed relief. "Thank God it's over," Fifield said. "I think it was the hardest two weeks of my life," she said referring to the campaign.

When asked why he thought he won, next year's president Lane Alvey said, "I feel that I have good qualifications. And I prepared myself well through my leadership experience and through attending such meetings as Student Senate and Fee Allocations." The first thing Alvey said he plans to do is "choose a staff of assistants that will work hard to help me achieve my goals." "I'm excited and I'm going to dedicate next year to Weber Slate College and make it the best year ever." Friends of the new president assured those around that "Lane's a basket case," due to all the anxiety created by the elections.

On a more serious note she added, "I guess now is when the real work starts." As an afterthought, Fifield said, "I want to start decorating my office." Alvey, 23, a junior from Roy, is majoring in Communications. Hamilton, 19, of Ogden, is a mechanical engineering student. And Fifield, 20, is an English major, also from Ogden. "I'm glad I'm not running," said current ASWSC President Stephanie Jessen. "I'm really excited. I think they'll do great. They're all capable. It's too bad somebody has to lose." Of the nearly 12,000 students who attend the college, (see ELECTIONS on page 3) Kinko's may face copyright lawsuit (CPS) A group representing the biggest book companies in the country threatened in early April that it may sue Kinko's, the nationwide chain of photocopying centers, for its practice of helping teachers engage in "professor publishing." The Association of American Publishers (AAP), based in Washington, D.C., said the practice in which professors photocopy and bind together materials to supplement or in some cases replace textbooks violates copyright laws. Professors claim the practice also can save students from having to buy lots of textbooks. Under the "fair use" provision of copyright law, professors need permission to copy everything, unless they can pass a litmus test for brevity, spontaneity and "cumulative effect" of the copying on the course. It's up to Kinko's, the AAP says, to make sure they can pass the test. "We have no comment on whether or not there will be a lawsuit," said AAP spokesperson Virginia Antos. "We're not saying anything more or less." Kinko's representative also declined comment. The publishers' group in 1982 won an out-of-court settlement in a case that charged nine New York University professors of illegal photocopying practices. NYU professors now need written proof that they have publishers' permission to make photocopies. Kinko's has more than 400 stores, most serving college campuses.

|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.|
