Work Program Expands at WSC More than 100 additional students can now be employed at Weber State as a result of an additional $96,250 made available by the federal work-study program. Dr. Dee W. Flittion, placement director for Weber, said administration of the program has been transferred from the Economic Opportunity Act to the U.S. Office of Education. This change has resulted in a liberalized operation of the system, making it possible for low income students who are emancipated from their parents to sign for part time work. Other needy college students are also eligible to obtain jobs under this program in such lines as instructor's aide, laboratory assistant, clerical and custodial help, office work of all kinds, and many others. Before this time only students whose parents were in extremely low income brackets could qualify for the jobs. Dr. Flittion said students interested in securing work should apply at his office immediately. Officers for the fraternity are Brent Pulsipher, president; Lynn Boss, vice president; Jay Gardiner, secretary - treasurer; and Jerry Kizerian, corresponding secretary. Other members include Clyde Black, Kent Bulkley, Doug Cox, Bob Hunter, Steve Moon, Jerry Nebeker, Curtis Smout, Dean Stokes, Jack Sugglemyre, Doug Twede, and Winsolow Hurst.

Mar. 21 Senate Overides Exec Council Veto, Re-Pass Finance Bill The Red Room was the scene of a power clash last Thursday night as the Senate overrode an Executive Council veto and re-passed Senate Bill 1Q-66. Originally passed February 27, the bill provides: "That the office of Business and Finance Vice President submit to the Student Senate of WSC a financial report indicating the current condition of the ASWSC Budget. That said report shall be submitted each month and shall be in writing. "Said report shall disclose each organization's budget in terms of estimated income, estimated expense, net appropriation, actual income, actual expense, and net income to date. "All monies held in reserve shall be disclosed and all additions and subtractions from said reserves shall be expressly itemized."When Senator Jerry Nebeker presented this bill to the Senate two weeks ago, the senators fully approved it and suspended the rules in order to avoid the usual week in committee and make it immediately effective. But last week the bill was again on the agenda it had been vetoed by the Executive Council, for the following reasons: "It is the opinion of the Executive Council that the Third Vice President should have been contacted as to the nature of Senate Bill 10-66 before its passing in the Senate since he is the primary person concerned. "We feel that his activity in the past has proved very trustworthy and dependable. "We feel this duty is already emphasized in the Constitution and does not need to be elaborated on in a bill. "We feel that it was hastily run through the Senate as if in an attempt to put the Business and Finance Vice President under the auspices of the Senate. "We as an Executive Council realize the importance of keeping the Senate abreast of the financial standing of the student body. However, we feel that the Financial Committee of the Senate has as its duty to investigate the funds of the student body by consulting with the Business and Finance Vice President. In the past we know of no problem arising from this, and it has been left to the Senate to investigate these financial matters."Senator Winslow Hurst began the discussion: "In case there is any doubt in the mind of the Senate, the Supreme Court has ruled that the Senate does have the right to ask for this report. And as you know, Curtis's report that we had only $32 left came as quite a shock. I feel that the Senate could definitely function better if we had this financial information each month." Senator Richard Bowman supported this point of view. "This bill still strikes me as beneficial to our functionings," he said. "If there are factors in it which would be detrimental, we should take them into consideration. If not we should re-pass this bill." Doug Twede, speaking from past Senate experience, stated, "The awareness of finances has always presented something of a problem to the Senate--and this year especially. I feel that we do need this kind of a report, and further, that its passage would ensure a better and more effectively run Student government, Senate-wise."Senator Ton Snow raised another issue. "None of the reasons given by the Executive Council are really valid reasons to veto this bill," he pointed out. "Three out of four of these reasons apply only to this year," Senator Scott Liddell added, "Yet this bill would have value for future Senates as well as this one." Senator Jerry Nebeker, the bill's original proponent, stated, "What is at stake here is really a matter of principle. Our authority as a student Senate is being tested.

|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.|
