(photo by john shupe) art department diversifies with new teaching concept Weber State College's Art Department has introduced a new teaching concept this year in an attempt to "diversify its art programs," according to Dr. Peter L. Koenig, art department chairman.This concept, called the "Intern Program," is the first of its kind on the WSC campus and will provide young artists with an opportunity to work with a senior faculty member in the areas of their training. Dr. Koenig said that the artists are also assigned to teach one class per quarter, which provides them with valuable college teaching experience. They are paid $2,500 for their services, plus they have the use of the college facilities for their individual work. This year Weber State has four artists-in-residence, who i . f .... together provide "a diversity of talents from varied academic backgrounds," Dr. Koeing said. They are: Olive Ayhens. Samuel Moya, Suzanne Muchnic. and Joseph Wixom. Miss Ayhens holds B.F.A.and M.F.A. degrees from the San Francisco Art Institute. . Her paintings have appeared in the Richmond Art Center. Berkley' Art Center, and the San Francisco Art Institute. A former teaching assistant at the California College of Arts and Crafts. Samuel Moya gained B.A. and M.A. degrees from that institute. His work has been exhibited at the Judah L. Manges Museum in Berkley, the Crocker Art Gallery in Sacramento, the Richmond Art Center, and the Museum of Contempory Crafts in New York. He has recently received a by ira hatch Oldest of 10 children,18-year-old Miss Northern Navaho, Linda Denetclaw, represents the northern part of the Navaho Indian nation at WSC. Linda received her title during the summer at Shiprock, N. M. where she lives only moments away in Fruitland. Two weeks after being crowned Miss Northern Navaho, she traveled to Window Rock, Ariz., where she was chosen second runner up to Miss Navaho. When asked why she chose Weber State College, her dimpled smile almost gives the answer away. '.'I like to meet queen selection fails to make commitment by mike dabling editor-in-chief This space was originally meant for a story on the Weber State College Homecoming Queen telling students who had won the election last week. However, those in charge of this contest did not follow through on the commitment they made to the Signpost. Last Thursday as today's paper was being layed out, the Signpost scholarship for study at the University of Osaka, Japan. Holder of a B.A. degree from Scripp College and a M.A. degree from Claremont Graduate School, Mrs. Muchnic has taught at public schools in Texas, California and Florida. Her works have been exhibited at Pasadena Art Museum, the Riverside Art Association, the Fullerton Art Association, the Oxford Gallery in Fngland. the Western Craft Center, and the I'tah Designer Craftsman Show. Exhibits in the I'tah Biennial Shows of 1964. 1966. 1970. and 1971 and in the Ctah Institute of Fine Arts Exhibits of 1971 and 1972 have featured the works of Joseph Wixom. He holds B.S. and M.F.A. degrees from the l'niversil of I'tah. and he has taught inpublic-schools in I'tah and Kansas. people, and this is the best part of Weber State College." Linda went on to say that WSC is one of the few colleges with an Indian advisor. Miss Denetclaw recently returned to Shiprock to reign over the activities and pageantry of the colorful Northern Navaho Fair. She explained that there would be many more tribal fairs if not attending WSC. Although she enjoys Ogden and being away from New Mexico, the beautiful black haired miss plans to return to New Mexico after completing her education.At the moment she is major was approached with a proposition to hold space in today's paper for the story on who had been chosen Homecoming Queen rather than running the story in Friday's Signpost when the queen's reign was drawing to a close. Voting for the six candidates running for the title was to have been completed Friday afternoon, with the results being tabulated Friday evening and turned over to a Signpost reporter who had agreed to write the story over the weekend so it could be taken to the printer Monday morning, who had also agreed to hold space for the article.However, as of printing time, the results of the voting still had not been tabulated and a queen consequently had not been chosen. We at the Signpost feel this shows extremely poor planning on the part of the Homecoming Queen selection committee. We also feel it to be in poor taste to run a Homecoming Queen contest to select one of Weber State's coeds to preside over Homecoming Week and then begin that week without having chosen that queen. In our opinion, at the ing in office administration, but hopes some day to become active in social work. Linda loves all sports and was an avid basketball player at Fruitland High, where she also took an active role in the Indian club, Dineh Club. Dineh, she1 explained means Navaho in the Navaho language. . Her happy smile explains her philosophy on life, "Live life while you can" and adds, "we got to keep on trying even if things go wrong." What about future beauty pageants? Linda has already made up her mind to enter the Miss Indian New Mexico pageant next summer. very least, voting for queen candidates should hava been terminated by Friday noon, results tabulated Friday afternoon and an announcement as to who the Homecoming Queen for this year should have been made by Friday evening. While it is true that the committee planned to tabulate the votes Monday (rather than earlier planned Friday) and announce the Homecoming Queen to Weber State students Monday night, we cannot help but restate that this is too late. To the queen candidates, Elaine Rasmus-sen, Judy Carter, Jan Hall, Madeline Spears, Zona Merrihew and Mary Davenport all we can do is offer our regrets that we were not given the results in time to use it for today's paper and our sympathy that they had to get involved in such a seemingly poorly planned program. To the studentbody we also offer our regrets with a hope that committees working on other projects throughout the coming year can carry through with the pride and conscientiousness that has marked committees at Weber State in the past.

|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.|
