Oops In last Tuesday's paper, Robert Folsom was quoted as saying, "We have gained an additional 376 stalls." The printer made a mistake. The figure should have been 37. '' ' Sprayed Instant Grass? by Joe Cha Instant Lawn, or maybe Artificial Astroturf, or could it possibly be Hydro-seeding? All throughout the week students, faculty, and for the most part, people driving along Harrison Boulevard have been guessing as to what kind of new artificial landscaping techniques work-crews were applying to the west end of the campus. Actually the green, mucky substance which is sprayed from a fire-engine-like nozzle is not an artificial technique at all, but a process called Hydro-seeding. Hydro-seeding, according to Robert Folsom, director of campus planning, is "a special seeding process that speeds up the growth of the lawn." The mixture contains seed, fertilizer and a chemical, plus a green dye that enables the workmen to see where it has been laid. When it dries, a hard coat is formed protecting the grass seed from rain and winds the process aids the germination of the seed. If the weather stays warm, we should have some grass in a few days. The special method is covering the area between Harrison Boulevard and the peripheral road. The project should , be finished before winter has a chance to set in. Plans for Preliminary planning is still underway to establish a day care center on campus for students who need day care services. The new center, unlike the present nursery school, would also provide day care services for children below two years of age. Results from a questionnaire mailed out to all married students last spring show the definite need of a day care center on campus, said Carroll Finley, a member of the Day Care Steering Committee. According to Finley, many parent-students are either forced to quit school or attend part-time at Weber State due to the unavailability of a day care facility A proposal is being worked out by the Steering Committee to submit to the Executive Council for approval of the day care center. " . The number of children to be accepted into the proposed facility is still in question because a space for the center has not been established. The new hydro-seeding looks like L f i "sf j- ; J ' . fll v - 'jtr&ZBt 4?&zr&ts JKJ kcc J"'? day care "The law requires a minimum of 35 square feet of floor space per child excluding hallways, bathrooms, stairways and kitchens, and 'we don't know how much room we'll have to work with," said Finley. She said. "We'll shoot for the moon and hope for the best." Although questionnaire results do show a peed for the center, Finley said the results were conservative because Weber has a number of unmarried parents that could use the center but did not receive a questionnaire. Finley estimates 50 percent of the initial cost in setting up the center would be donated and she 'has had many offers for volunteers to work in the center. By establishing a day care center for children, says Finley, a large number of students and potential students could further their education at Weber State College. The proposal will be ready to submit to the Executive Council by the 19th of this month, she said. the surface of some unknown planet.

|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.|
