Library roof damage ruins over 200 books by Dave Haun Staff reporter $5,000 in damages and the ruination of 200-300 library books was attributed to a lack of expansion drawings and poor drainage systems,-when a portion of the library roof fell during Winter Quarter. Craige S. Hall, director of the Weber State College library stated that "We've had troubles with seepage before but the damage this time was the greatest." Samuel Packer, director of building and grounds, stated that difficulties' with the roof had nothing to do with construction of the new edition, but was mainly a maintenance problem. - Dr. Robert Folsom, director of campus planning and construction, said that "the weather along with the pool draining and lack of expansion joints" caused the material in the old roof to deteriorate. Two alternatives Folsom stated that the college has two alternatives. "We can put on a temporary patch, and then ask the state legislator for the necessary funds for a new roof," said Folsom but added that he thought the idea "very impractical." The other alternative, put forward by Folsom would be to re-roof the entire section of the old portion of the library. Both Folsom and Packer felt that the latter would be most probable. Folsom stated that to re-roof the entire section would cost $25,000 and further stated this would not solve the problem. Reconstruction Folsom commented that what needed to be done "is to reconstruct the entire roof, with slopes and expansion joints that would take care of the problems that caused recent damage." Folsom estimated the cost for the alternate plan as SoO.ikio. These funds woufd come out of next year's fiscal budget to building and grounds and this would require the readjustment of this .year's budget. Folsom said. Library construction is slated to Ix-gin as snon as weather permits.

|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.|
