Spirit competitons are part of the homecoming activities this week. Daniels has hope for 'a new tomorrow' By TYSON HIATT News editor of The Signpost Pouring money into higher education to make rui tion-f ree publi c uni versi ties a nd by taking it away from military spending is one of the main focuses of Ron Daniels' presidential campaign. "A multicultural education is the only thing that will rid this country of racism," said Daniels. Daniels has taught at several colleges and universities throughout the country and feels a multicultural education will help students to be tolerant of other people's values and cultures. He also feels admission requirements to public colleges and universities should be minimal. He said we need to pay teachers higher salaries. "Higher education should be available to everyone," Daniels said. Daniels said in 1988 there were 90 million Americans who didn't vote or didn't register. He said this group is the largest political party of all, the nonvoting party. He placed the blame largely on students who are not involved. "Students make up a voting block of 30 million people," he said. Daniels has been a strong advocate of civil rights and independent black politics for the last 30 years. He was active in Jesse Jackson's campaign during 1988 and was the executive director for the National Rainbow Coalition, an organization that fought for human rights for minorities. Daniels is still fighting for human rights to prepare the country for what he calls "a new tomorrow." When Jackson moved his support to the Democratic Party, Daniels carried the torch for build ing a new tomorrow.Daniels said he isn't so much hoping to win the election as he is hoping to start a movement to gain support for the issues of his new tomorrow campaign. Daniels feels overspending in the military is the biggest problem with our country. "Why should we spend millions of (See DANIELS page 3) INSIDE News: WSU announces 1992 homecoming royalty. Page 3.

Matheson, McNeeley debate pros and cons of pari-mutuel betting in Utah at Issues Forum AND THEY'RE OFF: Immorality vs. economic gain, Issues Forum features debate on pari-mutuel betting in Utah. By RANDY CARDEN Staff writer of The Signpost Pari-mutuel betting was the issue debated at the Honors Issue Forum on Thursday.Hugh Matheson of Utah Citizens Against Pari-mutuel Gambling argued againstbetting, arguing thatgamblingwas immoral. Lynn McNeely of the Citizens to Put Utah First said pari-mutuel betting would result in an economic gain for Utah. The benefits of pari-mutuel betting for horse breeders, as well as the economic benefits for Utah, are the main reasons why we need pari-mutuel betting in Utah, said McNeely. He went on to say that economically, if we had pari-mutuel betting in Utah, it would create 250 more jobs as well as create approximately S1.5 million of revenue a year. Matheson, who strongly disagrees with McNeely, said pari-mutuel betting would only create problems for the state of Utah. Bringing pari-mutuel betting would, in rum, bring more gambling into this state. He suggested that if pari-mutuel betting was passed the Native Americans of Utah would try to bring more gambling into Utah by opening casinos. During the question and answer period of the Honors Issue Foru m, the ball seemed to be in McNeely's court. The majority of the public attending this meeting favored the passing of pari-mutuel betting. Presently 80 percent of the horse breeders in Utah have to pay licensing fees to the state of Wyoming, as well as lodging fees. Matheson said the SI. 5 million dollars in revenue Utah would gain if pari-mutuel betting wen tin to effect would only amount to SI. 35 per student and that it really didn't amount to much. SI .5 million is better than nothing, McNeely said. Pari-mutuel betting will be voted on in the November election.

|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.|
