neber state Volume 31, Number 16 Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 Friday, November 19, 1971 12 Pages Publications board Music wants election policy from Signpost editor By Barbara O'Shell Signpost editor, Jeannie Young, was requested this week to formulate and submit a policy statement regarding the paper's position on endorsing a candidate in a studentbody election. The newly created publications board met for the first time on Tuesday. Jerry Burns, chairman of the board, announced that the first item of business on the agenda was to define the "purpose" of the publications board. Then he referred to the rider which had been attached to the Signpost budget (SB 30-A), and which had been repealed by the senate. He requested the editor to submit a written policy statement on this subject in order to "set guidelines" under which the newspaper could operate to "provide equal time" for candidates. Curtis Smout, a member of the board, requested that the editor also submit a list of current staff members in order that it might be determined if these people were eligible to work on a student publication. He pointed out that there were grade point and minimum credit hour requirements to qualify a student for these positions. Curtis Smout had prevented debate on Senate Bill 6-72 in senate session the night before by making a motion to adjourn. The bill was reported out of committee with minor changes and recommendations for passage. The subject of this bill was revision of the membership on the publications board. Discussion on this bill should be scheduled on the agenda for next Monday's senate session. Providing the current publications board is still in existence, it is scheduled to meet again next Tuesday. Only three members of the board were present at the first meeting. These were Jerry Burns, executive vice president and chairman of the board; Kevin Wheelwright, student representative; and Curtis Smout, Student Government Coordinator. The two faculty and administration representatives have not yet been appointed to the board.

WSC's oldest student Maybe you know him see page 7 i Special Events Center still item for distant future says Dr. Foulger By Robert Mickelson It will be at least four years before Weber's Wildcats can expect to be housed in a new Special Events Center. According to James R. Foulger,- Business Vice-President, no student now enrolled in a four year program at Weber has much of a chance at using the new facility, at least not as a Weber student. "It will take the Administration and the various committees concerned with the project at least a year to develop plans for the Center," explained Dr. Foulger, "followed by another year for an architect to draw up plans for the structure and two year's construction time." William P. Miller, President of Weber State, said that within a month committees will be formed to discuss the various aspects of new center. It is hoped that by the end of this school year the committees will have something to turn over to the architect. Among the many problems to be discussed are: where the Center will be built, what type of activities will it house, how many seats will it have, and how it will be funded. Once these questions are answered the State Building Board and the State Board of Higher Education will have to approve the building of the Special Events Center. "Once we have the answers to the first three questions," said Dr. Fouler," we can work out plans for funding the structure. We're not sure exactly what methods we'll use in doing that, but we are sure the money will have to come from College Building Funds." Robert J. Folsom, Campus Planner, reported that a site for the center has already been acquired south of the campus and LDS Stake Center on the Avondet property tract. "This location, however, is still up in the air too," informed Mr. Folsom. "There are still discussions to be had With city officials who want the center in downtown Ogden." "Facts concerning the center are still hard to come by," said President Miller. "We'll know more in about a month once the committees begin discussing it."

|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.|
