Outside, workers installed a temporary generator. Lights out: WSU loses power Laurie Albrechtsen Signpost campus affairs editor Darkness struck abruptly in three buildings at Weber State University, Tuesday. At the time the cause was unknown, said Sidney D. Jensen of WSU electronic systems. A main switch under building two was the cause of the power failure, said David Maxson, director of the physical plant. The power was out for some time, but through the quick work of Skyline Electric, a generator was found and the power was restored, Maxson said. The buildings will be relying on the generator until repairs are done, he said. The status of the technical education computer lab was online as of Thursday night, said I Ching, lab assistant in the technical education building. I Ching said there were no problems with the computer programs on the PCs. Some classes were cancelled on Wednesday because of the outage, but resumed on Thursday with no problems reported, Maxson said. "We really appreciate the support given to us in the finding and installation of the back-up system by Skyline Electric' he said. A new switch has been ordered and will be installed as soon as the parts come in. "We have not been given any confirmation as to when the parts will arrive. The generator will be able to handle the load until we can repair the system," Maxson said. Sex "not just a handshake" speaker says By Lauri Albrechtsen & Marci Wiser Signpost staff writers "Sex is not just a handshake or an athletic event as some people perceive it as today- if you're not ready, you're not ready!" Ellen Gottblatt said at Convocations Thursday. Gottblatt, a former talk show host, teacher and currently an author and columnist on sex and relationships, said that everyone should take their "sweet time" with sex. Gottblatt also said sex should not be looked at so casually, and a person should be ready physically, emotionally, and spiritually. "Relationships should be easy. You shouldn't have to work really hard to make a relationship right," Gottblatt said. She said first people should find themselves and reach their own level of achievement before getting involved with someone. After a person is where he or she should be, it will be possible to achieve excellence as a person and in a relationship.After reaching out for excellence, one should never settle for less in a partner. She said patience is the best way to get what you want for an end result in a relationship because you will never be able to change anyone to your own desires. Gottblatt also said if a relationship is right, it will come easy and you shouldn't want to change your partner. "That doesn't mean you shouldn't always work at making a good relationship better," Gottblatt said. "But if the relationship is bad, run for the hills!" See Sex page 2 Enrollment at Weber down Enrollment at Weber State University is down 546 students, according to figures released from the WSU registration office. Last fall, WSU enrolled 14,993 students. This quarter 14,447 students enrolled. President Paul Thompson identified three reasons for lower enrollment this year: B New admission requirements imposed by the State Board of Regents may have discouraged students from applying.B Low unemployment in Utah enabled many high school graduates to find jobs rather than attend college. fl Changing demographics reduced the number of high school students that may have attended WSU. "Admission requirements probably had the biggest impact on our enrollment," Thompson said. "Many students who would have qualified for admission probably chose not to apply because they believed their index scores were too low." Before the regents imposed admission requirements, WSU had been an open enrollment college allowing any student who applied to attend. Enrollment declined most among freshmen and "unclassified" students, See Enrollment page 2 Quick Takes : . : A&E The Natural History Museum brings the past to Ogden's Union Station.

|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.|
