Wthtx Vol.27, No. 7 Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 November 10, 1967 EKiigher Tuition Pending A proposed tuition increase at Weber State College was not discussed this week after the Utah Coordinating Council on Higher Education had earlier announced a meeting with school officials would be held. The problem of reduced state appropriations and lowered estimate of the Uniform School Fund resulting in an estimated $53,000 loss of anticipated funds will be discussed at the regular board of trustees meeting, said Dr. William P. Miller, WSC president. No announcement of date and place for a meeting with board members and the Utah Coordinating Council had been announced Thursday, although such a meeting is reportedly planned. Dr. Merle Allen, director of the council, said last week special conferences with board members of the state's colleges and universities "would be immediately scheduled." The University of Utah Board of Regeants met Wednesday and decided to postpone an increase until the 1968-69 school years. Funds, will be taken from next year's budget for current operations, said Donald B. Holbrook, U of U board chairman. Utah State University's board of trustees "has held we shouldn't raise tuition, but whether we should keep stand unless we are forced by the governor and the Coordinating Council to increase the price," said a USU spokesman. With vigor VJhiievjashing goes big Students will attempt to whitewash the "WS" initial on the mountainside east of the Weber State College campus today after feeble attempts to block the letters failed during the 1967 "Weberific" Homecoming Celebration. Some 200 students will be needed to complete the project which was only attended by some 30 students during both whitewashing parties Homecoming Week, said Dennis G. Heiner, general chairman. Beta Phi Beta fraternity was the only strong supporter and completed much of the work, but a substantial amount of the work remains, he said. The whitewashing will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the block site. Special cars will leave the union at 1, 1:30 and 2 p.m. for students who do not have their own transportation to the mountain. Heiner said 125 bags of limestone will be at the letters and water will be supplied by a brush truck from the Weber County Fire Department. Participating students will have to carry bucketfuls of the limestone-water mixture about 100 feet. Fifty bags of the limestone will be poured on the "W" initial and 75 bags will be placed on the "S" initial. Hot chocolate and doughnuts will be taken to the mountain site for refreshments when the whitewash A' I- if 1 n r , J P 1 1 . ! ? At- .? -.. ,.... trim m flatrifcmHra . Associated Men Student's vice pres. Rex Belnap, Harold Young and son, AMS pres. Steve Young, try "practice lines" for Dad's Day. Dads come to campus By Dave Anderson Saturday is a day for father and son. And Saturday is the Second Annual Dad's Day sponsored by the Associated Men Students. Dad's Day begins at 8 a.m. Riverside Golf Course is the scene for the father and son golf tournament. Meanwhile, back on the campus, less hearty fathers and sons can enjoy the union's Games and Recreation Area. The indoor swimming pool will be open between 9 and 10 a.m. Also at 9 a.m., tours of the campus ing is completed, he said. A stomp will be held Friday at the union cafeteria in celebration of the completed project, said Charles Gilmore, dance chairman. Students who helped with the whitewashing will be admitted free of charge. All other students will have to pay a 50? admission price, he said. Heiner said the whitewashing was organized into a general committee activity this week after the activity did not get enough student participation last week. Howard Collet, Games and Recreation Committee Chairman, is supervising transportation to the block site andASWSC Financial Vice President Brent Wilson is supervising hill activities. The activity may be placed under the supervision of the Spirit and Orientation Committee next year. This is the second annual year whitewashing has been held at the Weber State campus. The W and S Initials were designed in 1966, but only the "W" letter was white-washed that year. Freshmen students helped block the "S" initial this fall. Future plans for the lettering include planting os summac on the mountainside to give the slopes color and to replace weeds now growing around the structure, Heiner said. will begin.

A special section in the stadium is reserved. Student admission will be free and dad will pay $1.50. Dad's Day is, according to Young, an outgrowth of the football team honoring their fathers. It became an annual affair last school year for all WSC male students. Over 150 father-son couples attended last year. ta4-tM Wi ' Vmmt an- - - - i iimaiiiri mm - - mill 'miih If"T f ifittwurf fi iiiiimihium ir ' I -Miiurn n mi 'rtuniiinn-ti fr 11 11 iMimaMHmmMmmmemm&. imM Some measure of order will be initiated into Weber State College's new parking lots- by theTraffic Security Department when parking areas Weber Traffic Security Campus security officers will begin a crackdown on parking offenders Monday with completion this weekend of two new parking areas.

"With the completion of the three lots, the addition of 1000 stalls to the present 3775 stalls should provide enough parking for students during the day," Sandstrom said.

|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.|
