These violations stem from years of misunderstanding of the rules governing educational radio stations," Ashby added. Infractions of the rules were as follows: Transmitter not within the peripheral vision of the board operator. Staylimiter not operating properly (control of the on-the- show comes to weber state Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. Virgil and Julie, who have performed their wizardy before audiences throughout the world, air sound level). Several Board Operators without licenses. According to Ashby, the most serious violation was operator licensing. Since that time, all personel have obtained the necessary document and other violations corrected. WSC was not the only station to be visited by the FFC. The entire length of the Wasatch Front was the target area. All FM radio and TV stations were inspected.The station manager and engineer were in the process of making several changes in station policy when the inspection occurred. "We were then and we are now in the process of cleaning up the act because we expect another visit from the inspecting team," said Ashby. separate charts was made to were included in the college this will be making their only Utah appearance at Weber State this year. "This program has been booked as an additional attraction to our announced cultural series, and should be enjoyed by the whole family," said Daniel L. Martino, coordinator. "The fact that it has family appeal was a principal reason for making the selection," he added. Among their amazing acts, Martino said, is "The Tibetan Mystery" in which Virgil causes Julie to fall asleep in mid-air and then invites members of the audience to come to the stage to observe the phenomenon at close range. In another act Julie demonstrates the mysteries of the mind, and Virgil, "a master hypnotist" takes volunteers from the audience and puts them into a hypnotic trance, causing them to become great musicians, forget their own names and take on strange personalities. Julie and Virgil -- that's their professional and only names they use in connection with their performances -- have entertained Thirteen hand - illuminated constellation charts, thought to be plates from the "Sky Atlas" of noted 17th century astronomer Johannes Hevelius, have been presented to Weber State College. The unique gift was presented to the college by Dr. Frank Bartlett, well-known retired Ogden physician and amateur astronomer, said Dean W. Hurst, director of college relation.The individual charts represent constellations and stars recognized as various signs of the zodiac, Hurst noted. "While varying somewhat from today's more familiar patterns, they are still amazingly accurate in detail when considered in the light of scientific instruments, telescopes, etc. used during that period," he said. An interesting feature of the maps is a reversal of the constellations as astronomers of the time pictured them as looking from outer space rather than from the earth as a platform. The original Hevelius atlas was published in 1687 and contained 54 maps of stars, charts, and illustrations. The copies of the atlas are considered extremely rare, and audiences from New York to Calcutta.They have been on numerous television shows, including Garry Moore and Ed Sullivan's, during their travels to five continents, reef cross conducts blood drive program A blood donation drive is being conducted by the American Red Cross at Weber State College on Oct. 10, 11 and 12. Donations will take place in rooms 327 and 328 of the Union Building on Oct. 10 and 11 and in the Institute of Religion gymnasium on Oct. 12. It is estimated by the Red Cross that less than an hour is required to make a donation. Donors must be at least 18 years old and weigh a minimum of 118 lbs. Only one pint is taken per donation and these can be made several times each year. Blood is broken down into several components and it is possible to save eight lives with one pint. According to the Red Cross the charts presented to the college appear to be separate impressions rather than from the atlas itself, Hurst said. "Representatives from the college have made several contacts regarding the charts with editors of "Sky and Telescope" magazine (Harvard Observatory, Mass.) who have been most helpful in supplying background information," Hurst said. Considerable interest has been shown in the astronomy department of the college as a result of the planetarium program, which has enjoyed community as well as student interest. Planetarium director David A. Tripp, who expressed appreciation to Dr. Bartlett for his interest and support, has developed a number of programs ofgreat interest at the planetarium. Included in future plans is the establishment of an observatory for actual viewing of the stars. A unique effect of the facility would be a closed-circuit television projection of the telescopic field which would be viewed by an entire class remote from the observatory.Methods of financing such a program are currently being studied, Tripp said. Martino said. Tickets cost $2. They are on sale from Oct. 2 to 11, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the lobby of the Fine Arts Center, or may be bought performance nieht. there is a national emergency situation now because of a insufficient blood supply. Forty-one area hospitals will be allowed to draw on the supply of blood donated at Weber State. Credit cards are given to donors crediting them w ith any-bloods needed anywhere in the United States. Families are also covered. The actual blood donation program is staffed by medical personnel assisted by trained volunteers.Miles Crabtree, president of the Intrafraternal Council, said. "The fraternities are pledged to give 300 pints of blood and will match whatever is donated by (he rest of the WSC campus.

|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.|
