Voted down S0S mmm In a narrow vote, 6-4, the student Senate Monday night dashed hopes for an SDS chapter on this campus. The vote came after heated discussion from senators favoring both sides. Keith Orton, senator at large, compared the SDS with the early Mormon church's unpopularity, and commented further, "I don't think you can hope to defeat it (SDS) by ignoring it." He also alluded to a "fear and basic insecurity" and suggested the Senate "be fair to all groups." Dean Alan Daley, represent, ing the administration on the Senate, took a solid position against the possible acceptance of the constitution. There is "no inherent right," he said, "of a group to be recognized" Commenting about the possibility of them going underground, he said, "We can still only lift their charter. It is the same control as innon-recognition." "Their members are encouraged to pay national dues. We are," he added, "buying a national organization. We can deal with them best as an unchartered organization. Our recognition is a stamp of approval.""The students were 2-1 against the SDS," said Wayne Hill, senator, at-large, who mentioned fur. ther that he had taken polls a-cross campus, in some of which the margin was increased to 5-1 opposing approval. Fran Wikstrom, policy committee chairman and inter, fraternal council representative, suggested the "one year probationary period" for the SDS saying that as students who paid fees they "had a right to use facilities." Jerry Allen, senator from Associated Men Students, read a statement by college presidents which noted the decrease of violence. "Riots have already peaked out and are declining." "They do have a right on campus," he added, "and the constitution does meet all the requirements."Dave Evans of technical education listed several points a-gainst acceptance, suggestingthe statement of Academic Freedoms Rights and Responsibilities does not include "every one who wants to be constituted, but every group who is consti-. tuted. Lets not confuse the right to be constituted with the right to come before us," which would, he said, "take our choice away from us." A statement was read by the acting head of the Senate, Ray Bingham, from the Alumni Association which opposed passage of the constitution because they were "lacking in positive aspects."The Senate meeting was the practical "end of the road" for the SDS, which must now either cease to function entirely or function without recognition or try to pass the Senate later. Bingham, acting as pro tern-pore in the absence of Bill Wash-burn, called sharply for order several times during the meet-ing and at the close of the meeting ajcurnment was as-sumed because senators were leaving.

|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.|
