Gaz, who have worked side by side in the auto shops of the college. Both carry the rank of assistant professor of automotive engineering. They both began their duties on the former lower campus of the college at 25th and Jefferson, utilizing shops in the vocational education building. Gaz started in 1942 instructing the aircraft engine mechanic learner program for Hill Air Forec Base when the nation was gearing for the demands of World War II. He was assigned to teaching auto mechanics in 1952, and in 1962 he was made chairman of the auto mechanics department. Gaz has remained in that department until the present time. During his 41 years as a teacher Gaz taught also at Carbon County High School and at Carbon College. He is a graduate of Utah State University. According to Gaz, he may do some consultant work in his field and teach temporarily as opportunity occurs. Hartog began his service at the college in 1945 as an evening school instructor in auto body and parts courses. The following year he went full time and has since remained in the area of auto mechanics, which since then has enlarged into automotive engineering technology. He has served as an officer on the WSC Credit Union since its inception in 1957. The office of the Credit Union then consisted of his office in the Technical Education Building, where he handled loans for several years. He had been a member of the credit union's board oi directors and was treasurer-manager until 1976. Hartog notes that the organization has loaned around $26 million to employees and families of the college. He also officiated for seven years as homecoming chairman, a period that spanned the years of transition from a two-year to a four-year institution.

|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.|
