Kmilie Bean Mews Editor The short term student loan program is undergoing some major revisions. This year has seen some difficulties in ad ministrating the dual school and ASWSC programs. Emil O. Hanson, assistant vice president for ad ministrative services, has reevaluated the program and has come up with two alternatives for ASWSC in volvement. The first alternative is to have one short term loan program. ASWSC would put up SI 0,000 collateral for the loans, .if that collateral was depleted because of defaulters, ASWSC would be expected to replenish the fundi. The loans would be used to pay for tuition, fees and bookssupplies and emergency cash loans. The loan criteria would require a student to have a' least six credit hours, be matriculated, a GPA of at least a 2.0, be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and will be approved on ability and willingness to pay back the loan.

There is no interest charged on these loans, but there is a $10 processing fee. Also, a $10 late fee will be assessed for loans extending past the deadline. Alternative two is the same as one except that ASWSC would not participate. The ASWSC sponsored loan was originally design ed to be an emergency loan. "It was money to go for other things besides tution and fees," said C . Scott Baxter, ASWSC vice president for academics and ad ministration. However, the ASWSC backing of $10,000 was never transferred. If the senate chooses to ratify. the first alternative, they would have to put up the money, "it would impact this year's financial consideration," said Dr. Marie L. Kotter, vice president for student services. "I don't think it's a good risk for you, frankly," said Hanson to the senators in Monday's meeting. He said that $6,000 or $7,000 could default within the next few months. "We've lost as high as $20,000 to $.10,000 per year," Hanson said. lonathan Wright, ASWSC president, said the new plan, "deviates completely from the intent of the ASWSC loan."

The paper is not published during finals week and spring break. The first issue of the paper for spring quarter will be available Thursday. April 2. GM, WSC pair up Monica L. Ray Staff Reporter Weber State College, General Motors Corporation and Utah General Motors dealers have developed a partnership involving automotive services. ASEP, Automotive Service Education Program, is a two year Associate of Applied Science degree pro gram in Automotive Service Technology. There are only 40 such programs across the country, said Rick DeMoss, ASEP coordinator. The program is geared to teach automotive courses that are exclusively devoted to current GM vehicles. It is a 20-month program that has been developed by GM and WSC . There will be 44 weeks of classroom work ex perience at a sponsoring GM dealership. The training will be done in alternating 11 week blocks. Students will also be taught communication and general educa . tion classes. "Weber will be the focal point for the Great Basin area for transferring technology on late model GM cars to technicians in the area," said DeMoss. After the first 1 1 week block of on campus training is done, students will be able to "practice and perfect" their knowledge and skills at a sponsoring dealership. Recruitment for the program has been done at high schools from Logan to Provo, said DeMoss. Also, current employees of GM dealers and students from other areas will be enrolled in the program. Students are responsible for locating a sponsoring dealership before they can test and apply for the pro gram, said DeMoss. Approximately 20 students will start the program in the fall of 19S7. Students are also responsible for tuition, fees and other expenses that amount to approximately S(,S50 for the 20 month program. However, much of that e pense can be offset by- the wages earned during the work experience sessions, DeMoss said. The goal of the program is to have a technician who grows rapidly in technical competence, professionalism and value to the dealership in which the technician is employed, he said.

|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.|
