Who will claim this sexy black slip? "We will give them away with a smile," says Farrell Shepherd, Union Building director. Situated at the main desk in the Student Union Building since 1961, Lost and Found has an interesting job serving a worthwhile function for a forgetful and careless clientele of students, visitors and faculty members. This unique department has a potpourri of memorabilia and belongings including books, keys, gloves, socks, various underclothing, swim suits (in winter?), glasses, cameras, calculators and the above mentioned choppers and slip. According to Shepherd, unclaimed articles are kept from six to nine months, after then they will either be sold at an auction or salvaged for use on campus. Clothing is given to the Theatre Department and the proceeds from the sale of lost books go into the Lydia Tanner Scholarship Fund. In addition, all lost eye I ' physical education and recreation and Ronald Wooden, music. Those promoted from the rank of instructor to assistant professor are: James Beckham, music; Scot Birkinshaw, library; Donald Carpenter, social work; Evelyn Draper, nursing; Afton Higgs, library; Ruth Hunter, library; Scott Jensen, theater arts and Arlene Stein, nursing. glasses will be given to the Lions Club. All leftover items then are earmarked for an auction, which is held every one to two years depending on the volume. Monies received here go into the U.B. fund. Shepherd said he was surprised that so few people come back for a lost item. He urged persons that lose articles to check more than once, for sometimes the article is brought in after the initial call is made.

The next issue is scheduled to come out on March 21 with Mary Woodhead as editor in chief.

|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.|
