I P. 8 1 G N WEBER STATE UNIVERSITY OGDEN, UT Groups compete for student fee revenues Campus Recreation requests almost a $50,000 increase over last year's budget By LAURIE M.WIRTH News editor of The Signpost Weber State Campus Recreation has requested $275,658 of student fee monies for 1992-93, an increase of $49,849 in new monies from what was allocated this year. They are competing this year with all student service organizations for nearly $4 million in student fee money to be collected next year. All Campus Recreation pro-grams and the administration of the programs are funded through student fees monies. Budget requests are part of a quarter-long process where representatives of campus organizations appeal to a Student Fee Allocation Committee for monies from student fee revenue. Money allocated is based on revenue from projected student enrollment for the following school year. The budget request includes 14 clubs, such as intramural and racquetball as well as the Health and Physical Education Center. With $5,000 of the additional money requested, John Knight, director of Campus Recreation, said they plan to purchase two Climbmax Step Machines, and $510 will be used to update computers."The steppers are by far the most popular piece of equipment and seem to take the edge off people being dissatisfied," he said. Additional funds, $17,500 sal Israel must By GREG WEBBER Staff writer of The Signpost Salam Noor and Murhaf Joue-jati bemoaned Israel's participation, or lack thereof, in the quest for peace in the Middle East, Thursday, at the Honors Issues Forum. The two University of Utah Middle East Center professors, respectively Palestinian and Syrian, gave Arab perspectives on the ongoing Middle East peace talks. "Israel's position has been one of extreme hindrance to the peace process. Negotiations have lasted for over two years because of Israel's occupation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip," Noor said. Jouejati said that regardless of any progress made in the peace talks, Israel's illegal occupation of Arab territories will perpetuate conflict. Weather Dense valley fog night and morning hours today through Saturday morning. Otherwise increasing high clouds with haze in the urban areas.

Currently there are two part-timeemployees working each shift. Three thousand additional dollars were also requested for insurance costs for clubs. Fred Meaders, bowling advisor, said in the bowling community of intercollegiate bowling, "we are now feared." This year, there have been 476 participants in intramural basketball, Knight said. The HPEC opened in 1990. Knight said there was not a lot of initial use, but since then new equipment has been purchased, and it is open 92 hours per week. He said more than $48,000 has been invested in aerobic equipment. Approximately 71 percent of the students use the HPEC sports arena as compared to 14 percent of the faculty and staff and 15 percent of the community, according to Campus Recreation statistics. "What impresses me is the volume of students that use the facility," Knight said. He said the HPEC is not a community facility, but primarily an educational facility. Approximately 20 percent of the time the building is open for academic programs, he said. Forensics The Forensics team, speech and debate, requested $42,000 for their 1992-93 budget, a $9,500 (See FEES page 2) compromise NOOR AND JOUEJATI hope Israel "You can't engage in the proc- ess of dialogue when Israel insists on maintaining their occupation," he said.

News editor of The Signpost Doug Heir, considered the Best Overall Wheelchair Athlete in the World, was the guest speaker during Convocations Thursday where he stressed the importance of overcoming obstacles and believing in dreams. Heir, who broke his neck at the age of 18 when attempting to save a boy from drowning, is now a lawyer and internationally recognized athlete. Heir, pictured on millions of boxesof Wheaties, 'The Breakfast of Champions," is considered the best overall wheelchair athlete in the world. Winning over 160 gold DANIELLE MABEYTHf SIGNPOST medals, he has been the National, World, and Olympic Champion for over eight years. He will be competing in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. Heir told his audience to avoid "should haves and could haves" by being able to recognize and take advantage of opportunity. "When you start dismissing opportunities, you give up on dreams. Don't surrender," he said. Heir quoted Henry Ford's philosophy on missed opportunities, when he said, "Opportunity knocks at the front door and your in the backyard looking for a four leaf clover."

|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.|
