Some changes had been made in the constitution to accomodate the council's new role as a representative body for the fraternities alone, instead of for the fraternities and sororities. The Council agreed to accept these changes without an individual explanation of each one, following a request by IFC President Keith Wilkinson. Another change that came because of the elimination of the sororities, was the dropping of the women's vice president. Questions arose during the discussion of one change requiring a $1 per member, with . a $30 maximum membership fee. Jon Bingham asked if this policy would be fair to the smaller fraternities who might end up paying as large an entrance fee as a fraternity with 40 or 50 members. Wilkinson pointed out that some of the fraternities had said that they would refuse to pay the throughout week 7 p.m. Thursday evening.

Neil West, public relations vice president said that he felt that as long as the IFC had ratified the constitution, the council should "not be concerned with the equity." No rubber stamp Bingham responded that "we're not here to rubber stamp" and that the council had an obligation to make sure the constitution was fair. Kevin Allred, chief justice of the Supreme Court and a member of Pi Kappa Alpha said that the smaller fraternities had suggested that method of funding rather than a flat fee to help Notice Only students and faculty displaying WSC I.D. cards will be allowed to enter the Fine Arts Center auditorium main floor between 11:45 a.m. and 12:08 p.m. for Convocations.

Another question arose over a section of the constitution that would have allowed the IFC to fine member fraternities for certain violations. This section of the constitution brought out questions regarding the enforcement power of the IFC, and the legality of its position. Chad Russell, Ombudsman, suggested that these questions be referred to the attorney who visits the school every week. West moved to table the motion to approve the constitution until the next meeting. Revise system In other business, the council agreed to use this year's faculty evaluation and spend this year revising last year's system. - Bingham said that Dr. Jerald Storey, vice president for academic affairs, had made this suggestion because last year's evaluation was still valid and the money should be spent this year revising the forms and the system. Copies of last year's evaluation are available in the reserve section of the library, the ombudsman office, in Dave Rich's office and at registration. A change in convocation was also discussed. The new policy would open the convocation floor to students with ID'S from 11:15 until 12: 10 and then start allowing members of the community in. The last article of business discussed was council support of a bill that would give students access to their confidential files. Members of the council agreed to sign the letter.

|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.|
