Academic Council votes 'yes'-Rank Advancement by Richard Andrews The Academic Council met Thursday to act on changes in the Recommended Guide for Advancing Personnel in Rank. The proposed recommendations were that it be required that associate professors have a doctor's or terminal degree, plus 4 years as assistant professor at college level, only 1 of which must be at Weber State College. A full professorship requires that the faculty member have a doctor's degree or terminal degree, plus 4 years as an associate professor at the college level, only one of which must be at Weber State College. When the motion was opened for debate the Council divided into factions. Dr. Robert Mikkelsen, who presided over the meeting as Vice chairman of the Academic Council in Dr. Hofmann's absence, presented and favored the motion to change the current guide for advancing personnel in rank. While the Liberal Arts Department favored the motion, the Technical Department, the Art Department and a majority of women faculty members were opposed, however; the motion passed 19 to 13. Peter Koenig, Chairman of the Art department, said that at Havard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Columbia, Stanford, M.I.T., and Dartmouth the chairmen of the Art department did not hold Ph.D.s and that only two members of a faculty of thirty-seven at the University of Utah Art Dept. held Ph.D.s Pat Fernandez, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, said, that the motion would work undue hardship on women faculty members and that they needed time to prepare for such requirements. Others worried about the fact that no exceptions were made for outstanding accomplishments and that the requirements would discourage teachers from coming to Weber State because of advancement possibilities. Senate begins 1972 business voter group asExs Senate support By Jackie Clifford A request for Senate support by a new student get-out-the-vote group was a major item of business at Monday Jan. 10 Student Senate meeting. The group, which says it is nonpartisan, is led by Byron Warfield-Graham and John Verburg. They say they plan to raise the student percentage of Weber State voters in national elections. Steve Glines, member of Weber's Senate, told other senators that endorsement of this new group would give it the support it would need to operate effectively on the campus. Group leaders have attended a convention in Illinois to direct them in their efforts to raise the student vote statistics. Sen. Don Hughes questionedWar-field-Graham as to the direction of incoming funds to the group. The student party will receive funds from the National party "Student Vote" and from community sponsors. The student organization is not affiliated with Young Democrats or Republicans, its leaders say, but will involve any interested parties upon request. Dr. Alan Dayley, dean of students, recommended that the group have some type of organization to be recognized among the students. Dr. Dayley also noted that the campaign will cover two school years bringing a new senate into action. The senate members agreed to send the group's request for support to the investigation committee, and to give Verburg and Graham-Warf ield a chance to draw-up a constitution. The issue will then be presented to senate members for the initial approval.Also on the agenda for the meeting was the issue of dispensing the booklet "Rights and Responsibilities of the Student." Sen. Hughes feels that the publication is just something to give to new freshman at registration and isn't used for any other reason. Other members agreed that the booklet was outdated, however, they felt that the booklet was necessary to keep students out of Municipal courts. Students have the same rights as other people in the community but in order to keep law and order on campus, there must be a written code of conduct, senators agreed. The issue was put off indefinitely until further investigation can be made. Executive Vice President, Jerry Burns, informed Senate members that funds used to bring high school officers to the campus was being considered for a change. The change would be to direct funds to the Sterling Scholar awards. Ombudsman, Brad Post, reported progress of his committee in Monday's meeting and also announced the opening of the office in room 230 of the Union Building.

Seventeenth Century Rome was both religious and sensual. The works of Titian, Rubens and Bernini, with their appeal to universal emotions, were the acme of popular art. The essence of Baroque is the uniting of flesh and spirit, dogma and sensuality, obedience and freedom. This unity is also evident in the great religious figures of the time, St. Ignatius, St .Teresa of Avila, and St. John of the Cross. "Papal Rome the Rome of Sixtus V is the most grandiose piece of town planning ever attempted, and it anticipates by fifty years the great town plans of France and Germany. The amazing thing is that it was done only a genera-tion after Rome had been, as it seemed, completely humiliated almost wiped off the map. The city had been sacked and burnt, the people of northern Europe were heretics, the Turks were threatening Vienna. It could have seemed to a far-sighted intellectual that the papacy's only course was to face the facts, and accept its dependence on the gold of America, doled out through Spain. Well, as you can see, this didn't happen. Rome and the Church of Rome regained many of the territories it had lost and became once more a great spiritual force."

|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.|
