WSU Center of Excellence for Chemical Technology leads study for UTI prevention By Cindy Greenland Staff writer of 7ihe Signpost The Weber State Center of Excellence for Chemical Technology is in the midst of a study on natural remedies for the prevention of urinary tract infections that could bring national recognition to the center. "If we're successful we will be solving a problem that has bothered scientists for a long time," said Barbara Wachocki, postdoctoral fellow in chemistry. "We will be helping people with a natural product, and we will gain recognition in the scientific journals which will reflect favorably on WSU." The study involves the effects of cranberry juice in the prevention of UTI. "It's been a well-known fact that cranberry juice seems to prevent UTI. We're trying to discover what the mechanism is in cranberries that prevents bacteria from bonding to the bladder cells," said Wachocki. Dr. Edward Walker, director of the center, said, "UTI is a significant problem in 20 percent of the female population in the U.S. (See STUDY page 3) WSU campus may see new buildings and parking lots By Lisa Ivey Staff writer of The Signpost Pending funding approval by the state legislature and Board of Regents, Weber State can expect big changes in the buildings and parking located on campus within the next few years. Preliminary designs for completion by the mid-1990s include tearing down Buildings 1-4 to make space for a mathhumanities complex. Also being planned are a student services building, major additions to the Fine Arts and Allied Health buildings, new parking lots and peripheral roads and an ice rink by the Dee Events Center. Proposed changes were discussed in the annual meeting of the WSU Master Planning Committee Wednesday. "Our highest priority this year on the legislative request is for producing the Student Services Building," said Bob Folsom, director of Architectural Services. The $12 million building would be located between the Administration and the Union buildings. "We'll know next Wednesday night if we have funding for it," Folsom said. "We're optimistic there might be some funds there." The Student Services Building is three years away from completion, including one year to design it. According to WSU President Paul Thompson, the master plan will be presented to the Board of Regents next month. Thompson said the population of the surrounding area is growing rapidly, especially in Davis County, meaning that more students will want to attend WSU. "Our hope is that we can handle that increased enrollment by moving more of our classes to the afternoon," he said. "We would not have to build new buildings if we could move students to afternoon classes ... Also that would help us deal with the traffic problem we wouldn't have so many people coming all at the same time." He said that another 1,500 students could be accommodated by filling up after- (See CAMPUS page 3) immiimiitwm News 2 Foreign langugage students smile on campus camera i?3 - 1 Entertainment You wont nod off at "Sleeping With the Enemy"

|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.|
