A bombing by the fundamentalist group Hezbollah killed three Israeli soldiers in southern Lebanon, and Israel responded hours later by bombing what it said was a Hezbollah base in Nabatiyeh, eight miles north of the Israeli border. In Beirut, a rocket hit the wall of the U.S. Embassy compound. There were no immediate reports of injuries or serious damage. Radical Shiite Muslim and Palestinian groups have promised to attack the United States and others involved in the Madrid peace conference opening Wednesday, which they oppose because it could lead to Arab recognition for Israel. The latest such threat came from Hezbollah leader Abbas Musa wi, who held a news conference in south Beirut to proclaim Wednesday "a day of Islamic wrath and mourning to protest against American at-(See WRATH page 6) : f v - , I .. h i Merry Halloween NO ONE TOLD Mother Nature that Christmas is still two months away as she brought daytime highs of twenty degrees below normal.

JU.IE COUIER7WE SIGNPOST Senators vote to require .D. cards, delay other ideas ASWSU LEGISLATION: Senators vote to require activity cards, consider forming a car-pooling board and hiring more tutors. By LAURIE M. WIRTH Asst. News editor of The Signpost All students attending Weber State University must obtain a student identification card beginning fall quarter 1992, according to a bill passed by Associated Students of Weber State University, Monday. Michael Wilcox, natural sciences senator, said the mandate was madebecause student ID cards enable students to gain access at various places on campus and "you can't really function without it." The bill will be given to the Student Fee Allocation Committee and the Administrative Council for implementation. One other bill and four resolutions were presented to the ASWSU senators, all of which were tabled until next Monday's meeting: CAMPUS CARPOOLING BOARD: Crystine Loveland, arts and humanities senator, presented a resolution to incorporate a campus carpooling board at WSU. She explained in the resolution that this would be beneficial to the environment as well as help ease campus parking problems. Loveland said the simpliest Vans proposed for night school safety By GREG WEBBER Staff writer of The Signpost A night van shuttle service may replace WSU's current escort service, providing evening students with increased safety on campus after dark. Resolution RA91-4, which outlines the need for an improved shuttle service, was proposed Monday to the ASWSU Senate by Jennifer Klingler, resident hall senator and main sponsor of the legislation. The current escort service is handled solely by Rick Wade, who works evenings in the Union Building. "There is only so much one man can do to escort a campus full of night students," Klingler said. Wade sometimes can respond to a student's call to be escorted from one place on campus to another. Many times Wade is unavailable for the escort service due to the demand s of his job or because he is escorting another student. If implemented, the night shuttle bus would run from 5 to 11:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and would simply be a n extension of the current shuttle bus service which runs during the day. The night shuttle service would incorporate one van which could pass in close proximity to campus buildings, including residence halls, and occasionally to the Dee Events Center. Klingler said there are several15-passen-ger vans available for use in the (See VANS page 2) way to resolve the parking problem on campus is to eliminate the number of cars on campus. The carpooling board would display names of students and their "respective areas" who would be interested in carpooling. It would facilitate ride coordination. In addition, she proposed an increase in the percentage of "A" stickers sold to individuals who carpool. If the resolution is passed by the senate, the resolution will be submitted to the parking committee. Members of ASWSU postponed the resolution for further discussion at next week's meeting. ENGLISH TUTORS: Gun-drun Schellhas, international student senator, proposed allocating additional funds from WSU for the English as a Second Language program, in order to offer more tutors. The resolution proposed that additional tutors be provided for "one-on-one scheduled sessions." The purpose of ESL is to aid non-English speaking students in learning the English language, Schellhas said. ESL students pay an additional $200 fee per quarter as a surcharge and one tutor can be hired by the program for 20 hours a week. In addition, she noted ESL students needing help were not receiving enough tutorial time to be beneficial, and to seek private supplimental tutoring would be an added cost. "I don't think it's fair to ask them to pay $6 an hour, when many pay $1,508 each quarter for tuition," Schellhas said. She estimated the extra tutors would cost approximately $3,600 per quarter. 'The ESL program has outgrown its capacity to provide adequate tutoring," Schellhas said in her proposal. The resolution was postponed until next week's meeting. MORE FOREIGN LANGUAGE FACULTY: A foreign languagecommittee to be designed to "research the possibilities of increasing the number of staff members in the Foreign Language Department or extending classes into the afternoon," was proposed by Cheryl Arnett, Hispanic students senator. Arnett cited that increasing staff members or extending offered classes would help to improve education quality in the Foreign Languages department. The resolution was not discussed, but was postponed until next week's meeting. SENATE COMMITTEE: Bradley Allen, physically challenged senator, proposed a bill stating that a committee should be formed to notify the senate of bills that conflict with university administrative policies. In addition, the committee would inform the senate of bills "on record which are void of enactment or enforcement." He said this would help senators write correct legislation. The bill was postponed until next week's meeting. NIGHT SHUTTLE: A resolution to implement a night shuttle service in place of the existing escort service was proposed by Jennifer Klingler, resident hall senator. The resolution proposal was (See ASWSU page 2) v. . I ARTS J 10 Hearts caught In love triangle In WSU production of "Betrayal." SPORTS 14 WSU tennis players fare fairly well at tourney.

|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.|
