vkskv w "XT. k V- Vol.26 No. OGDEN, UTAH January 20, 1967 Federal Grant Establishes Police Schoo Weber .Itate College has been awarded a $15,000 planning grant from the federal government to establish pilot courses in police science, it was announced Thursday by Senator Frank E. Moss. The course will be given by Weber's evening school, through "he Social Science Division, as soon as a coordinator and instructor can be employed, said Dr. Paul G. Butterfield, evening school director.Dr. Butterfield said it will be the first such course in the nation to be funded by the Law Enfore-ment Assistance Act of 1965, U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Law Enforcement Assistance. Dr. Butterfield said the original request that Weber State establish a course in police science was received from Larry Lunner, Orem police chief, and president of the-Utah Peace Officers Assn. "Since then we have discussed the merits of establishing the course with many peace officers in Ogden and other communities, and they said they would be very interested in having Weber offer the course," Dr. Butterfield said. It will be a two-year associate degree course, he added. The college will consider the possibility of extending it to a four-year baccalaureate program in the future, he said. The course is of interest to law enforcement officers now on the job, but young men who plan to make police work a career are also invited to enroll. In addition to the evening courses the college will organize off-campus classes, Dr. Butterfield said. He added Utah police and sher- 'j iff officers have expressed a desire to require a greater degree of professionalism in law enforcement work, and to offer a wage schedule that would attract more young men into the work. The Utah Peace Officers Assn. plans to present a bill to the present Utah Legislature that would, if passed, require a higher degree of training among applicants to qualify for employment on police and other law enforement organizations, Dr. Butterfield said. Science Building Bids Opened Bids for Weber State College's $3,500,000 science building will be opened February 2 at 2 p.m. in the auditorium of the state building in Salt Lake City.

Weber State Budget Slashed by Rampton Forwarned by President William P. Miller that the college's proposed budget might be cut by Gov. Calvin L. Rampton, the $1.9 million slash Tuesday "came as no surprise" to the Weber State College Board of Trustees. "When we submitted our proposed $9,316,660 budget to the Utah Coordinating Council for approval, we knew that our recommendation would be cut," said President Miller. The Utah Coordinating Council reduced Weber State's budget proposal to $7,720, 126, 17.1 per cent lower than the figure recommended by the board of trustees. Further action was taken by Gov. Rampton Tuesday when he asked the Utah Legislature to approve $7,406,963 for the college. President Miller said he hoped the legislature would "at least" approve the Council's recommendation, although any reduction from the original request would mean cuts in the college's spending for the next biennium. The budget currently being considered by the Utah Legislature is for the 1967 -69 biennium which begins in July. Trustees also discussed, and approved, an amendment to the Uniform School Fund Statute to earmark funds to be allocated to Weber State for research purposes.President Miller said the proposal to be submitted to the legislature asks that one-half of Weber State' school fund apportionment be allocated for research. He said that if the school fund statute is amended, the college would be able to initiate a modest research program that would allow both students and faculty to conduct varied projects not available at the present time. In other business, board members approved an Increase in ranking for 31 of the college's Instructors, asst. instructors and t " - si assoc. professors. Tenure for eight members of the faculty was also approved. Emeritus status for faculty members Victor C. Hancock, foreign language department, and Del-mar G. Dixon, English department, was granted by the board. Dixon and Hancock will be retiring from teaching next spring. Announcement that Dean Hurst - past WSC alumni president, has been appointed director of the Development Fund Board and the Alumni Association was made by jUumni President Ferrell E. Carter.Hurst was selected by the 11 member development fund board for the newly created position. He will assume his duties Jan. 23. (see related story and picture on this page).

|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.|
