(Photo by Steve Matlow) x Friday, November 8, 1974 supported by Jake Garn, Senator Elect from Utah, said that the lack of balance in the economy is the major cause of inflation when he spoke at Weber on Monday. Responding to a question from the audience, Garn said that both domestic and defense spending should be cut. He added that massive reduction are not the answer because they would create a depression. Instead, he pointed to balancing the budget to solve the problem. He also said that the national debt is a major cause that is supporting inflation when he pointed out that "$1 out of every $10 goes for the national debt." Responding to another question he said that he did not see the solution in wage and price controls and that he was definitely opposed to them. More inflation He pointed out that people who Evans asks Assembly's help for research in new areas by Melinda Sowerby Managing Editor Dr. Kay Evans, director of student life, asked Academic Assembly's help in looking into an interim program and a general education major in the assemblys meeting on Tuesday. The interim course is a program designed to let students take about one-half the normal school load during the break between quarters, Evans said. She described it as being, "much like the accelerated courses during the summer." A student could receive three quarter hours in five days, going to classes for 40 hours in that five days, Evans said. She commented the philosophy of the program is threefold. There are millions of dollars worth of buildings on this campus which could be used more effectively with the interim, Evans said. She also said many teachers need extra money and would be happy to teach during the break. Also students have requested classes which could easily be included in the interim she added. Haphazard method She said the college is already doing things like this through workshops offered by Continuing Education. However, she added, "This has been sort of haphazard for everyone." She also said Ogden, Utah 84403 favor wage and price controls are "not addressing themselves to the major problems of inflation" and that interference of that sort causes more inflation in the long run. Speaking on another subject, Garn said that he is opposed to the equal rights amendment. Although he is not opposed to the goals that the amendment proposes, he said that he felt that it "opened up too many side issues." He referred to the amendment as being "the shotgun approach" to solving the problem and that he preferred the "rifle approach of changing individual laws." On gun control, Garn said that he is "opposed to any gun legislation." He explained that "the criminal element will still get them" and the law abiding citizens would be left un there has been a demand for such a program, "We have been losing students to other colleges because they have the interim," Evans stated. When asked about classes normally run in a series and how they would be affected by the interim, Evans explained it would have to be worked out with the dean of the school. She said, however, anytime there were 10 students who wanted a class it is now added to the curriculum and it would possibly work the same way with the interim. She said the program would place more responsibility on the students. In discussion of a possible general education major, Evans said there are some students with close to 400 credit hours that cannot receive a degree because they either have not filled a major or minor or have never filled their general education requirements. She added they deserve to be recognized someway. Really nothing She said there are many majors being offered now which are really nothing unless the student plans to enter graduate school. She explained many students don't care to choose a major. She also said that some places hire people if they have a degree no matter what it is in. In action taken by the Assembly, Cathy Corey, assemblyman Rain and snow expected to begin today and continue throughout the weekend. It will be colder with highs expected in the low 50s. protected. Major changes He also spoke about several major changes he would like to see in legislative procedure. He said that he is opposed to both the committee and the seniority systems that are used in the House of Representatives and Senate as well as most state legislatures. He said that he would like to see the President limited to one six-year term, along with senators being limited to two six-year terms and congressmen limited to two four-year terms. In response to another question from the audience Garn said the Environmental Protection Agency "has become arbitrary and dictatorial" and that they were adding to inflation. He said that they should be forced to consider economic issues as well as the environmental impact of corporate action. from the school of Health Occupations, asked about passing a resolution that there should be no tests given during dead week except in the case of makeup exams. She said there should also be no unnecessary assignments. Doug Young, assemblyman from the Social Science area, agreed but added student activities should be cut down also. Similar bill He made a motion that he and Corey work on a resolution. Discussion on the motion included a point by Ed Walker that if the Academic Assembly passed it, it would have no meaning because last year's assembly passed a similar one. Jon Bingham, academic vice president and chairman of the assembly, said they should look up the present policy to see if teachers are living up to it and then write up a change if necessary. In other business. Young proposed an amendment to the resolution passed last week concerning tenure. His amendment said that.the resolution will be appended to the Faculty Code of Right and Responsibilities. He said that this would make the resolution binding but not change the code. His amendment passed.

|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.|
