Green of WSC. The map appears backwards because they are being made from a series of "scribe coats." geography professor one of two selected Dr. Deon C. Greer, W.S.C. professor of geography, has been selected by the International Catographic Association to be one of two Americans to display maps at an exhibit in Ottowa, Canada. Dr. Greer's map, made from satellite photographs, is the first map of the great Salt Lake presenting up-to-date information concerning cultural, ecological, and topographical aspects pertaining to the existing lake conditions. One thousand hours and fifteen "scribe coats" representing the lakes different features resulted in the map being selected by the United States Exhibits Committee for the ICA exhibit. Because of recent litigations, on both state and national levels, dealing with ownership of the land, a factual and current map was needed. Dr. Greer's map provided vital statistics concerning the rise and fall of the water level, so that boundaries could properly discerned. Dr. Greer has no immediate plans for the future, but questions the possibility of making a map of the Dead Sea. by Brent Johns Arriving with Spring is the traditional political foray on campus. The campus elections will take on a new and very different look this year. Through the recent ASWSC Constitutional amendments and Senate action many old offices have been abolished and a new representation for the Senate has been established. The new representation gives more voice to the various schools of the college and abolishes the Senators of the residence halls, Inter-Fraternal Council, Classes, AMS and AWS. The Senate took action to eliminate Class offices and AMS by eliminating their election this Spring. Another battle developed between the Senate and ASWSC President Dan Hunter over acceptance of the election by-laws. The by-laws were changed substantially by the Senate to restrict campaigning through eliminating many of the signs and posters on campus. Among other objections, Hunter opposed the restrictions on signs in the dorms and having only one election. Hunter vetoed the by-laws as passed by the Senate, necessitating their reconsideration by the Senate. In a special session of the Senate, called on Monday by Legislative Vice President Fran Wheeler, the Senate, after considering a number of am-mendments to the by-laws, overrode Hunter's veto. Support for an amendment which would create two elections came in large part, from those Senators who would benefit most from being able to run twice. The vote on the measure to pass the by-laws over Hunter's veto was 8 in favor 2 opposed with 4 absent. The action of the Senate will result in only one election being selection of WSC president nears by WaltSchaffer A tough and difficult job in selecting the new president of Weber State college will fall into the hands of the Utah Board of Higher Education this spring. Dr. Levi Peterson, a member of the Advisory Screening Committee, stated that, "Weber State students and the community should no way be ashamed of the quality of persons applying for the office." The candidates appearing before the committee are most impressed by the college and seem very ambitious according to Dr. Peterson. A question of great prominence in the screening procedures is the concern over whether the emphasis of the college chould rest on vocational or academic studies. The screening committee wants very strongly to select a person who emphasizes both. The committee does not want to see either school gain prominence at the expense of the other. The final list of three or more candidates is expected to be forwarded by late April to the higher board for the final ap pointment. J held to elect 23 officers: 15 Senators, the five Executive Cabinet members and the three Associated Women Students officers. Although several candidates have indicated that they will seek Executive cabinet seats few have indicated that they will run for the Senate.

Declared candidates for the ASWSC President are Dennis Smith, Mike Waggoner, Fran Wheeler and Kevin Wheelwright.

|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.|
