WSC receives $1 million donation Ogden industrialist Val A. Browning has named Weber State College as the beneficiary in a $1 million charitable trust. A formal resolution officially accepting the gift and praising Browing for his many contributions ot the college and the community was unanimously endorsed by members of the WSC Institutional Council at their regular meeting Wednesday morning. In commenting on the trust Dale T. Browning, chairman of the Institutional Council, said that "Mr. Browning's gift represents another step forward in the development and strengthening of a new image for the college and community. We thank him from the bottom of our hearts." "We are thrilled and excited with the prospect of this marvelous program," said Dr. Joseph L. Bishop, WSC president, in announcing Die gift. "It represents," he said, "the establishment of a perpetual endowment source which will greatly enhance and expand the cultural offerings of the college to benefit students, faculty, staff and area residents alike." The fund will be known as the Val A. Browing Charitable Found-dation for the Cultural Arts at Weber State College and will be operated exclusively for the benefit of the school. Purpose of the trust is to allow the college to 'promote, develop and carry out its cultural arts programs to an extent not otherwise possible from other sources of revenue' according to the language of the trust. A gift of $1 million in securities to fund the foundation will occur as soon as an IRS ruling is received to legally qualify the foundation. The favorable ruling is expected within a few weeks, according to Dean Hurst, development officer for the college. Creation of the foundation followed a proposal written by Daniel L. Marlino, Director of Cultural Affairs, and submitted through the Office of College Development. Some of the objectives in Martino's proposal were "to further develop, build and enrich a campus-community cultural program into an enriching, intellectual and humanizing experience." "Specifically, the two main thrusts of the foundation should be for the development of creative cultural consciousness and qualities of humanness," Martino said. The trust provides for an initial supervisory committee of three members who will manage and control the trust for the development of cultural arts programs of the college. The initial committee named in the trust by position are the Director of College Development, the Director of Cultural Affairs, and Browning specified as the third member.

|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.|
