The briefing which lasted almost an hour, included WSC President Joseph L. Bishop, Dr. Jerald T. Storey, vice president for academic operations, and Thomas Riley, comptroller.

Hi J" resignation and the procedures for selecting a new assemblyman from that school were discussed in the Academic Assembly meeting on Nov. 26. Jon Bingham, academic vice president and chairman of the assembly, told the members he had received a letter from Hampton stating the article in the Signpost had seemed degrading to him and the School of humanities. Bingham said Hampton's per- sonal qualifications were not in question. He said he saw nothing slanderous in either the Signpost reporting or in the meeting itself. Ed Walker, assemblyman from the School of Natural Sciences, suggested the assembly write Hampton a letter to explain their position. He said the letter should point out to Hampton he was encouraged to come to meetings. Since he couldn't make it but didn't turn in a resignation, some action was required. Elections Committee Doug Young, assemblyman representing the School of Social Sciences, moved to turn the selection of a new assmeblyman over to the Elections Committee. He said it should go "through the normal chain of elections." Cathey Corey, assemblyman from the School of Health Occupations, added the elections should be held as soon as possible. This motion passed. Bingham said the elections probably couldn't be held until after the holidays. In other business, chairmen were selected to head the task force committees already formed. The chairmen must call meetings and make assignments. Ed Walker was appointed chairman of the committee dealing with the Bachelor of General Education degree. When he stated his schedule was busy, Bingham stated he would help.

Gallegos also requested reports from each assemblyman concerning their area assemblies. Bingham said 10-15 minutes could be given to them out of each meeting to discuss the progress made. Gallegos requested a report from Walker as to the ways Walker got his dean involved in the area assembly. The second resolution passed by the assembly dealing with "Dead Week" will go before the ASWSC Executive Council for approval before going to the Faculty Senate. The assembly described the resolution as "politically good." A motion made by Young, staring that each assemblyman be required to author or coauthor a resolution each month died for a lack of second. In defense of the motion, Young said these resolutions should come from the area assemblies and would show they were oriented to the problems of the school and that the area assemblies were trying to deal with them. Oops ! The Signpost regrets the errors dealing with the professors who spoke at the Faculty Senate meeting reported in the Nov. 26 issue of the Signpost. Alan Dayley, T.R.

|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.|
