Bishop stated that he has ' visited the dorms this year, by invitations and by surprise visit, talking with students trying to find out what the problems are and investigating the t "problems" to see if they really are problems. Available for comment were Head residents of Stansbury Hall, Laura and Rex Frasier. Rex mentioned that he did not think that Karl Wood had done a bad job as the housing director. He pointed out the problem came because Karl Wood had a different definition of what he should do as a housing director than did the administration. Frasier stated that the Administration wanted more student interaction on Wood's part, whereas, Wood felt his job entailed that of a "manager." Rex stated that he did not know whether Wood was willing to change his definition and that was probably another reason for the change. Frasier stated that Wood had . been to many conferences concerning college housing directors and that the general definition or role of the directors were "managers." Another reason that might have initiated the change said Rex,' is that housing has decreased in the past two years. Laura said the fault of housing did not lie with anyone specifically but that a con Index v.. .?v l ft! il. 'Av.vv v . . Ogden, Utah 84403 tributing factor was the draft. She stated that since there is no more draft, there is no more need for students to stay in school as a means of draft evasion, there is less need for student housing. Wood was unavailable for comment. A student in promontory towers reported a "power struggle" between Col. Robert T. Ladd, Kaye Evans, and "Monty" Shupe. Laura stated that "they may have gotten the idea when Robert Ladd said Monty Shupe will do the hiring and firing of people and it was brought to attention in the same meeting that Kay Evans would do the hiring and firing. Evans stated in that meeting however, that they did not wish to confuse people but rather that Monty Shupe was to hire and fire people with her approval.

|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.|
