Senators Prohibit Candy, Discuss Proper Conduct Suggestions to upgrade Senate formality and announcement of a new advisor were1 made Monday at the regular Senate session. Senator Dennis Heiner recommended that consumption of candy and other related activities be disallowed during meetings.Speaker Jerry Nebeker agreed with Helner's proposal adding that he had witnessed to many "mickey mouse" activities among Senators.The remarks followed a visit by WSC legislators to Utah State University's Senate. Nebeker added, "I believe our Senate is every bit as good as USU's, but we can improve ourselves in certain areas." Rolfe Kerr, Dean of Men, was introduced as the new Senate advisor for 1966-67. He replaces Dr. Dee Flitton, former student placement director at the college.Dean Kerr, former studentbody Suttlemyre Vetoes Senate Committees J. Ryan Rees Signpost Editor-in-chief Studentbody president Jack B. Suttlemyre vetoed a Senate bill Wednesday and approved five others that were passed by the Senate last Monday. Senate bill 21-65, which established standing committees in the Senate, was vetoed by the president.The bill introduced by Senate president, Jerry Nebeker, called for the establishment of a Ways and Means, Judiciary Student Government and Policy committees. Suttlemyre objected to the powers given to the Judiciary and Student Government committees. Wording of the Judicial committee gave the Senate committee powers to make "recommendations and to have jurisdiction over all bills". "I feel the Senate and not the standing committee should have jurisdiction over bills," Suttlemyre said. "According to my interpretation, the word 'jurisdiction' gives two committees, not the Senate,, power to approve or reject proposed legislation," he added.The bill was passed in the Senate several weeks ago, but as Freshman president, Tom Welch pointed out Monday night, the bills would not be valid until Suttlemyre signed them. Welch also said that the bills had not been prer sented to the president for his signature. Nebeker gave the bills to JBS Tuesday morning at Executive Council. The bill will now be returned to the Senate for action. The Senate can over-ride the president's decision and approve the bill with a two-thirds majority, or the bill can be re -written to clarify the problem areas. Welch said he doubted very much that the Senate would over-ride the veto by a vote, but would probably change the wording. Senior senator, Bob Hunter, who spoke in favor of the bill before it was passed, said he is now in president and government coordinator at Utah State University, said he appreciated the oppor-" tunity to again work with stud-, ent leaders. "I left Utah State with some reluctance," he noted, "because I worked so closely with the Senate, and I am pleased once again to be involved in student government." Three bills were discussed during the legislative session. Two were introduced by Policy Committee Chairman Mike Lowe and the third by Sophomore Senator Howard Collett. According to Lowe, his first bill would allow Senators, during a period of absence, to have representation on the Senate. The replacement would have a voice, but the power to vote would be given only upon approval of the legislative body. Steve Young, representing AMS President Art Jones, was approved favor of changing the wording. He said that Suttlemyre had pointed out the problem to him, and that he had overlooked the 'jurisdiction' problem when the bill was first passed. Nebeker was unavailable for comment on the president's action.Suttlemyre added that he had consulted several Supreme Court members before reaching his decision to veto the bill. Weber State Hoopsters On Television Weber State's basketball game with defending NCAA champion Texas Western on Jan. 21 in El Paso will be nationally televised by Sports Network Inc.

|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.|
