I 1 Werfnescay, ApriZ 12, 1989 Weber State College Volume 49 Number 62 Weber to be film location By Jill Titensor Managing Editor Weber State's campus is being considered as a site for some location shooting of a movie that is being made for cable television, according to Howard Noel, WSC public affairs office. Noel said he was contacted a couple of weeks ago concerning the use of Weber State as a filming site. An advance crew from Farrell-Minoff Productions has been on campus the last few days taking measurements and surveying the scene, although "we've not signed any contracts," Noel said. "There is nothing binding." The advance crew includes the location manager, the set designer, director, assistant director, cameramen and producers Mike Farrcll and Marvin Minoff. Some may recognize the name Mike Farrcll he played the character of B. J. Honcycut on the long running television series M.A.S.H. Not only is Farrcll a producer of this movie, but he is also the star. "The Smell of Money" (the working title of the movie), is the story of a college maintenance man, whose daughter dies. He believes a contributing factor in her death is a stream near his home which has been polluted by a local factory. The movie illustrates his struggle to do something about it. Filming is scheduled for April 25 to 29. "I think it'll be rather disruptive," Noel said. "By nature of the animal, it's disruptive." "But, it'll be fun." The show is being filmed for the Turner network, a cable television station better known as TNT. Channel 8 in this area. "It appears as though it's going to happen," Noel said. "But, I would stress there is nothing official at this point." Larry Linville, another M.A.S.H. alumni, has also visited Weber State College. He was a guest speaker for Convocation a few years ago. Linville played the character of Frank Burns. Inside iters for Senate it fishin at 'WSC A fmm fttgrmVOTgr fcl Spring pqgt 11 w .J If -Vy Tevtr Svorisfs team w fgj f0tats SpSlS 1 llflll I I .

Don't forget to vote. Remember, if you don't vote, : you. can't complain. (The Signposl photo: Stacy Net.) Hispanic Senator candidate, Alexis Salvo, was disqualified from running for that senate seat recently because he does not have United States citizenship, even though there is nothing in the explicit language of the Hispanic Charter concerning eligibility of foreign hispanics. "The formal qualification for the office of Hispanic Senator in the ASWSC states that any applicant must be 'a student of Hispanic origin.' Obviously, some authorities on campus don't believe I am capable of representing Hispanics born or naturalized in ihe U.S.A. because they arc supposedly very different from their Spanish-speaking relatives in other countries," said Salvo in a letter to The Signpost . The administration, however, is not (see HISPANIC on page 6) Attempt to free fees committee from administration failed in Student Senate By Scott Summerill Editor in Chief A proposal to oust the V. P. of Student Services from holding a position on the Student Fees Allocation Committee (SFAC) was killed by the ASWSC Senate at Monday's meeting. The sponsor of the bill, Social Science Senator Treg Julander, said he wanted to eliminate the possibility of political pressure on the committee. "I think we need a more pure voice for the students," he said. Currently, the by-laws for the SFAC requires the V. P. of Student Services, presently Dr. Marie Kotter, to sit as co-chair on the committee. As such, the position is not a voting member of the committee. Rather, the seat provides valuable financial information and other background for the committee to help them gain a good understanding of what each department needs. Julander's concern is that the committee is being influenced by the administration, and particularly, by the member of the administration who's job depends on the money being dealt with by the SFAC. I don't feel there should be someone with as much at stake on the committee," he said. "I also see this as a conflict of interest." Arts and Humanities Senator and member of the 1989 SFAC Heather Forsgren argued that the help of the co-chair was invaluable to the committee. She also pointed out that Dr. Kotter acted as a direct buffer between the committee and irate department heads who didn't get their full request. "I wouldn't want the job," she said. Forsgren said there was no pressure exerted on the committee by the co-chair. "I don't feel like there was any political pressure," she said. "I think the senate should think about this." "It is not a management versus labor problem," said Kotter. "We need to work together for the common good." Julander emphasized his concern over the possibility of administrative manipulation. "How many of us have been able to stand up against what Marie or Dean of Campus Life Rick Sline has said," he said. ASWSC Activities, Services and Organizations V. P. Kristen Olsen said in an environment as small as Weber State College, everyone could have some sort of interest. "If you start eliminating people with a conflict of interest," she said, "you're going to eliminate most of the committee." General Studies Senator Cliff Passey said the co-chair acted as a vital link allowing the committee "to see both sides of the issue." The proposal was killed when the senate voted to table the bill indefinitely. In other business, the senate passed a bil 1 sponsored by Technology Senator Guy Watkins to allow discount movie passes for Plitt theaters to be sold on campus. Forsgren introduced another motion to over-ride ASWSC President Stephanie Jessen's veto last week of a bill that would have removed some of the restrictions on students working toward a Bachelor of Integrated Studies degree who want to hold a Senate seat. According to Forsgren, there will be an amendment on the ballet in the upcoming election to allow a B. I. S. seat on the senate. If the student body votes for the amendment, a B. I. S. student would be appointed to the position. Forsgren's concern is that more than one B. I. S. student could be elected to office if the rules are not changed. "I think we're trying to fix something that's not broken." -- Mike Housley Natural Science Senator Natural Science Senator Mike Housley said the concern is premature. "I think we're trying to fix something that's not broken," he said. Business Senator Brad Wilson said, "Elections started today and we're trying to change the rules. Give me a break." Forsgren then withdrew the mou'on.

|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.|
