' ,' - " " " ' , s J I ' " - i' 4 I - MEMORIAL FUND COMMITTEE Memorial Fund Will Create Lasting Memory Donations are still being solicited for the memorial fund established for the three debators fatally-injured in a car accident outside Lovelock, Nevada last week. Money donated will be used to buy books for the library with an individual memorial to the three from the donor. Students and faculty members who contribute will also receive mention on memorial plates in the books. Student and faculty response has been slow, but studentbody officers feel certain that many more will want to contribute to the fund. "Larry Keller, co-debate chairman, stressed the worthiness of the cause, stating that this would be a permanent Weber State memorial fund. Box for donations is on display in the UB main foyer. Protests Launched Class Primaries Open Until Friday, April 29 Faced with group protests about this year's campaign procedures, Elections Chairman Russ Richards announced Thursday that primary campaigning will be extended until Friday, April 29. Those planning to run for student offices must attend the newly-schedued candidates' meeting Monday noon in UB 106-108. Petitions will be accepted until Tuesday noon at the main desk after which time official petitioning of nominees will be closed. Lindsay Curtis, legal advisor for the campaigns, explained that the elections have been extended an additional week because a lack of proper communications has left this year's candidates open for legal disqualification. The change of meeting from Monday to Tues-day and the subsequent change in rooms was in direct violation of election by-laws. Such action can be appealed to the WSC Supreme Court which could result in the elimination of many of the candidates. To protect the students from this type of legal action, student-body and campaign officers have decided to extend the primary cam paigns until next Friday. Campaign procedures will be repeated next week to legally comply with established election procedures. Richards further explained that this change of scheduling is "for better student government. Because the advertising was poor, extending the deadline will give more people a better opportunity to run for office". All space and petitions previously procured are still valid, but every nominee, whether he had previously entered the campaign, must attend the meeting Monday to meet election requirements. Primaries will be held Friday, April 29. Finals are scheduled for Friday, May 6. WEBER STATE COLLEGE, OGDEN, UTAH Bob Hunt i" R.

|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.|
