The regional competition will bad checks wsc off icia by torn hinson staff writer Bad checks are not only a problem to those students who write them, but also, in some cases to the rest of the student-body, explained T. Homer Johnson, WSC cashier. Checks that are returned to be held Friday, at 3 p.m. in the Fine Arts Cellar Theatre. Since all four plays have already been deemed excellent enough to be performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, every aspect of this festival should prove to be an' exciting and stimulating theatrical experience. Honoring the WSC Theatre, Ogden's Mayor Bart Wolthuis proclaimed the festival week of Jan. 10-17 as College Theatre Week in Ogden. blue key directory Blue Key student directories are now on sale in the Union Building near the snack bar. "The directories contain the names, phone numbers, addresses and subject major of each student at Weber State, as well as the school, and home phone numbers of the faculty and staff. "Another section of the directories contains information on who the student officers are, their organization, and phone numbers," said Brent Johns, sales manager of the project. leaving scene of accident unlawful by dorothy montalbano staff writer There is an increasing problem with drivers leaving the scene of accidents according to William Carver, chief of Security, on campus. The damage to unattended vehicles is increasing, and in most accidents the driver is insured, he said, adding "it would certainly help if students, faculty and staff would be more observant when they see an acci dent and attempt to get a description of the driver and vehicle involved." "The law is explicit in outlining the requirements each vehicle operator must do in case of an accident with an unattended motor vehicle," he continued. The law specifically states, "the driver of any vehicle which collides with any vehicle which is unattended shall immediately stop and shall then and there either locate and notify the oper ator or owner of such vehicle of the name and address of the driver and owner of the vehicle striking the unattended vehicle or shall leave in a conspicuious place in the vehicle struck a written notice giving the name and address of the driver and of the owner of the vehicle doing the striking and a statement of the circumstances thereof." (U.C.A. 41- 6- 32) Carver also said, "Improper parking in roadways, overloading parking lots, backing into stalls all contribute to this type of accident." Immediate reports of any accidents that occur on campus enable the officer to gather evidence faster and also help to locate the driver involved. "When we consider the total number of cars parked and the amount of daily traffic, it is no wonder that we have a number of leaving the scene type accidents," Carver concluded. serious warns WSC unhonored can result in the suspension of the student issuing the check, until such check is made good, and can also result in legal action against that student. Checks that are unhonored, for which WSC is not eventually reimbursed, are charged against the various places at which the checks were originally received. For example, checks returned to the main desk at the UB are charged against the UB operating expenses, which is financed by part of the student fees received each quarter. Most of the checks that are unhonored are received at the bookstore and the main desk in the UB, where students may write checks for cash. Students that receive notices of unhonored checks from WSC should contact both their bank and the cashiers office at WSC, located in the Administration Building, as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary problems. poll seeks opinion on expenditure by valerie boyer staff writer In order to determine if students want changes in the way studentbody fees are spent, a poll will be conducted on campus the first of winter quarter. Opinion research committee members and any other interested students will be administering the poll. Of the $135 in-state tuition presently charged, $45 are termed fees. Of this $45, according to Thomas R. Riley of the Weber State College Business Office, a $10 registration fee which is not refundable goes into the general fund of the college. This registration fee has been charged at Utah schools since 1890. A list of the fee structure shows the following breakdown: Student Government gets $5.15 for student organizations and student services; convocations are allocated 85 cents from each student; the Alumni fund gets $1; the Student Health Center also gets $1; Union Activities are allocated $2; Athletics gets $6.67; and Union BuildingStadium construction payments are $18.33. Dennis Fowler, studentbody financial vice-president, ex plainer ""btudents have no con trol over fees -- legally." However, through ascertaining student opinion, "we do have input' if changes are made in the fee structure. The State Board of Higher Education governs the allocation of student fee monies. An opinion of the Utah Attorney General's office dated Aug. 24, 1972, explained, "General fees are collected by the power of the state and therefore become state money as soon as they are collected. In a sense, they are analogous to taxes. Such funds are under the complete control of the state le gislature and must be allocated and disbursed in accordance with the laws and guidelines established by that body. Students individually or as an organized group retain no control over fees paid by them unless the control is granted to them by the legislature."Poll results of students' opinions regarding the fee structure will, therefore, go from student government to the WSC administration. Recommendations of the administration concerning possible changes may then go to the Utah State Board of Higher Education, for their decision.

|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.|
