"We have been playing exceptional golf all fall," Madsen said. "Last week we dominated the Beehive in con-vincing fash ion, and this week we turned in a record breaking performance." Madsen has proven to be a skilled, persuasive recruiter who has brought to the institution one of the finest golf teams in the nation. The "B" team, consisting of players with the higher qualifying scores, played well enough for a sixth place finish. Also competing in the tournament were Utah, Nevada-Las Vegas, Idaho State, BYU, Utah, and Utah State. The BYU team, a golfing power for many years in collegiate circles, suffered somewhat in the abscence of young prodigy Bobby Clampett, who was occupied with a tournament held overseas. chapter of the Utah Association of Academic Professionals requested salary information in order to do a comprehensive salary study on faculty members. So far, the college has refused to release any salary information to persons who have requested it.

|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.|
