This is the most votes that have been cast in any recent ASWSC election."

"This new structure is unlike any other department on the campus," said Myron B. Davis, new department chairman. "Instead of having program directors that report to the department chairman, we HPERD will have an executive committee that will function similar to a board of directors. We will function together in maintaining the department." Davis has been a member of the WSC HPERD faculty for 13 years, having acted as department chairman previous to Gary Willden, present chairman, whom he will replace. The executive committee is comprised of three members that have distinct responsibilities within the department. Members of the committee will be JoAnn Otte, Carol Westmoreland and Gordon James, all veteran professors in the department with more than 60 years collective experience at WSC. Otte will direct the professional and career courses for the physical education majors. Westmoreland will be in charge of the general and service activities. And James will head the professional and career courses for health and general election. Members of the HPERD faculty will be participants on different committees headed by Otte, Westmoreland and James. Placement on the committees will depend on individual professor's expertise within the department. "Every member of the faculty, including adjunct professors, will be able to participate on these committees," said Davis. "We have a strong and very hard working faculty, and this structure will enable us to utilize many individuals' strengths. The department will benefit from this utilization." The new gym is scheduled to open May 15. By Chris Rasmussen Staff writer of The Signpost "I am excited. No, I am relived that the election is over, but also excited that I won." said newly elected ASWSC President Douglas Peterson. "The actualization that I will be the president hasn't really sunk in yet," confessed Peterson. "I don't expect it will until I start to actually do the work." Activities, Services and Organization Vice President-elect Cherrie Brown approached Peterson and gave him a congratulation hug," You are going to do awesome!" she said. "No," replied Peterson,"we are going to do awesome." Peterson was unable to attend the election party when the results were announced. "I was at work, and my boss lets us leave when we are done, and not before then." "The first congratulations I received was when I was outside starting to collect my campaign signs. That was really when I was confident that I really did win." said Peterson. "Starting next week, I will begin my preparing for the position," said Peterson. Include in this preparing stage will be meetings with current president Lane Alvey, conducting meetings with newly elected representatives to begin setting goals for the next year, both general and specific. "I will begin appointing new people to serve as my assistance." said Peterson. For those interested, Peterson and ASWSC officials will be accepting applications during the month of April. ly main goal for my term is to get more student involvement in ASWSC activities and programs," said Peterson. "If it is a case of lessening the number of activities, rearranging times so more compatible for students, or altering formats to better serve the students, I want to make ASWSC more for all the students, both traditional, but also for the non traditional." Developing a more powerful form of student government is another major goal for Peterson. "I want to use the power that the college administration gives ASWSC. The student governing bodies here are allowed more freedom and liberty to express our views than a lot of other colleges, I want to use the power to fit the role that ASWSC was intended to do.

|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.|
