Wtbtx State Volume 28 No. 19 Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 March 7, 1969 (03 d3 5 D von ILoFseoTi Mew 4- r I . ' -. ...rr'-" 1 4 i- i -.V After nearly six hours in a locked discussion, the Publications Council selected Marilyn Larsen as editor in-chief of the SIGNPOST, and Michael Richards as editor of PROBE. Although applications had been invited for the ACORN, campus yearbook, none had been received. Another meeting will be held next quarter to decide on the ACORN editor. Marilyn Larsen is a sophomore, and as the name suggests, a girl the only female applicant for the editorship. She has been reporter, feature editor, and assistant editor of the SIGNPOST during her two years at Weber State. "I plan to encourage better coverage of student news, and to limit the space devoted toletters-to-the-editor," Marilyn told the council. Members of the council directed questions to each of the five applicants individually. Qualities of leadership, experience, and interest in the student newspaper were considered. "The SIGNPOST needs more in-depth reporting, and better representation of all students' opinions", Marilyn said. "More reasons behind the issues being reported need to be considered --not just the where, who, and when." Applications for the positions of assistant editor, sports editor, copy editor, feature editor, theatre editor, political editor, and business editor are now being taken in the SIGNPOST office upstairs in the Union Building. Applications must be filled out by all interested persons, regardless of present membership on the SIGNPOST staff. ft t. 1 , SPARKLING MARILYN Larsen prepares to lake over the responsibilities of Editor-in-Chief. Profs fo?e m In a startling move, Junior Class President Bill Washburn recommended that the Faculty be given a seat and a vote on the student senate. The recommendation, would allow the Academic council to choose a representative to serve on the Senate with equal power to elected student representatives. The surprise came when Washburn made a Policies Committee report, expected to be advice about limiting Faculty to one seat, and allowing only a voice. The action requested by Washburn would be a reciprocal gesture to the Academic Council, which recently invited into it's chambers four student representatives to be full fledged members. The Council totals thirty five members, and determines (Although subject to Administration opinion) policy concerning curriculum, planning and tenure. Strong opposition to a faculty was voiced by Senate members. "I question starting out by giving them a vote" stated Wayne Hill, Sophomore Class President. Student Government Coordinator Curtis Smout adamantly opposed the measure, saying, "I definitely feel that the Faculty would exert more influence than you Imagine. I am completely against it." According to Washburn, "This would increase communication between Faculty and Students for the ultimate goal of getting students interested." He further alluded that the combined effort of the Faculty and Student Leaders might result In a more Academic environment for the student. The controversial measure was "tabled" until a discussion with the Faculty might suggest a more clear alternative. The proposed English proficiency test made progress toward a favorable vote. Dave Evans, Education Senator, read a lengthy discription which detailed a "vertical" basic English course which would be taken, one quarter per year, for three years. A proficiency test would be given to Juniors, and a writing course offered for failures. This plan, according to Evans, has widespread support from the Administration and the English Department. "Students are generally against it, however." In other action, the Senate . unamimously approved unchanged the constitution of the "Wildcat Weber State Flying Club", and debated with no clear resolution a sweater wearing policy.

|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.|
