The candidates and their views Hoss specks Burton speaks Confining his remarks mainly to economic policies and issues, Senator Frank E. Moss spoke to nearly two hundred and fifty Weber Staters last Tuesday. He assailed the Nixon Administration's "no policy" economic policies and noted the economic issued used in his presidential campaign.He listed the results of two years of Republican policies. "First, inflation. Inflation is now running at an annual rate of 5 to 5y2 percent and has been as high as 6 percent." "The President also promised us his economic policies would bring no increase in unemployment. Today in our nation there are 2 million more unemployed people than there were when President Nixon assumed office. The Senatorcharacterized administrative attempts to produce an inflationary slow-down, as precipitating "Creeping economic paralysis." To remedy the problem, Senator Moss advocated the use of voluntary wage and price guidelines. Finally Moss concluded the economic discussion with several proposals to help solve the economic problems of the nation. "First it is time for a clear statement of economic policy to be set forth by the Administration." "Second, if we are to reduce unemployment from its current, totally unacceptable high rate, we must begin to chart a course for economic expansion." "Third, in order to protect us from further inflationary spirals we must have strong leadership from the president and the Administration in wage-price guidelines." "Fourth, it is time for government to lower interest rates and liberalize the monetary policy of this nation." "Fifth, and I believe this to be most important, our nation must create an economic, monetary and legislative policy based upon a clear set of national priorities." Responding to a question concerning his stand on the Indo-China war Moss said, "I am not an isolationist, but the U.S. has played the role of world policeman at the expense of citizens within our own border." Moss ended by commenting upon the women's liberation movement. Although he didn't agree with all aspects of the movement he strongly supported the efforts of women to receive equal pay for equal work. Enumerating the positive things that he had tried to do for Utah, Congressman Laurence Burton chatted with about one hundred and fifty students by way of telephone, from the House floor last Wednesday.The Congressman, scheduled to appear at Weber, had to remain in Washington for a crucial roll call vote. The Congressman did howevei arrange a telephone hookup from which he addressed the Weber crowd. First, the Congressman presented what he considered to be his major contribution to the state. He felt that his efforts in the area of water development rated top priority. He told the audience that he was instrumental in gaining some 42 million dollars through the Colorado River Basin project alone. The Bonneville project, the Deuschene Reclamation Project, and the Central Utah water projects, were all claimed as accomplishments. Burton also explained his work insecuring and locating the historic Mormon Battalion Trail as a National Trail similar to the existing Oregon National Trail or the Santa Fe National Trail. Also the Congressman explained that he had devoted a great deal of time to the problem of pollution and ecology. "Pollution is waste," Mr. Burton pointed out, "It is an entire waste of economic resources." Burton cited his co-sponsorship of the Presidents 37 point pollution bill, as proof of his commitment for ecology. The former Weber State student also questioned the specific operation of his opponents campaign. He branded Moss as an "ultra liberal," who is attempting to pre-empt the middle of the road. The Right To Work Law was Burton's next topic. The Right To Work Law he explained, "States that unless a national union exists you don't have to belong to a union." Although he admitted that Moss had never voted for the bill, he accused the Senator of tacit support of the controversial section of the Taft-Hartly Act. Vietnam was the Senatorial candidates next subject. "Moss and Johnson were going around in 1964 trying to make Goldwater look like some kind of a nut. Yet, bombing and defoliation were started with the support of my opponent. The Representative concluded by stating, "I think I know the state and its problems, and I think that I can represent the voters of Utah and their political philosophy." administers Project Respect which is the vocational arm of the Ethnic Studies Institute.

|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.|
