Weber State College Jan. 12, 1976 WSC women join together The women's Campus Life Organization, a group involved with actively improving the status of women students at WSC is sponsoring a seminar, today at 11 a.m. on "The Crisis of Rape." It will be held in the U.B. little theatre. The seminar will include speakers from the Division of Rape of the Salt Lake City Police Department, from the rape crisis center in Salt Lake, and Bud Stevenson, a clinical psychologist from the Weber State. The seminar is one of several programs planned by the Women's Campus Life Organization to educate and improve conditions for' women on campus. Other programs that the group is planning include a health seminar in March, a shot clinic for pre-school children, counseling for women, and a nutrition clinic for pregnant women according to Carroll Finley, a member of the group. The Women's Campus Life Organization is for all of the women on campus Finley said, however full membership is only accorded to women over 21. The organization is geared toward women who are coming back to college after spending some time working, or raising children. One of the group's major goals, a child care center, has been temporarily stalled because of inability to answer all of the legal questions involved. Finley said, however, that they have contacted the Utah Attorney General's Office and are waiting for a reply. Another goal, that of setting up a women's resource center in the U.B. has been stalled because of lack of space in the U.B. The organization has, however, increased its membership since the start of the year and Finley said that with an increased membership, the group should be able to get more done. i( ) CENTER J 24-Hours everday. OS. Counseling - information x.""""' Carver's brother probed wiretap Some aspects of the wiretapping charges against WSC Security Chief William Carver were investigated by his brother, Robert Carver, state liquor law enforcement division director. Robert Carver said that he did not consider his action to be an investigation. He said, "I was not asked to conduct an investigation. I was only told to take a statement and that's what I did." Both Carvers said that they did not see any conflict of interest in brother investigating brother. The investigation was the result of allegations, made by former WSC security officer David Nelson, that Carver had attempted to wiretap both students and staff on the Weber campus. The wiretapping charges became public last summer after the Utah Attorney General's office began investigating the matter at the request of WSC president Joseph Bishop. Asst. Atty. Gen. Stephen Randle said that his office found no basis for prosecution in the incident. It was a question of Carver's word against Nelson's as to intent to wiretap employees according to Randle. Carver admitted attempting to wiretap students in an open meeting with students, faculty, and staff on Nov. 13. Carver said at that time, "I did not use wiretapping on the faculty or staff and it didn't work when I went to use it (the device) against students."

|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.|
