Our typesetting equipment in the office broke down, so all the extra work was assumed by the patient printers at the Box Elder Journal in Brigham City. Our thanks to them for taking on this burden. (a Good company, the popular Weber State rock-and-roll group, departs May 30th for their third USO tour of American military bases in Europe. The group, under the direction of Dick Davis, program bureau director, will perform at bases in Iceland, England, Germany, and Belgium. This is their third trip to Europe and fifth USO tour overall. Good Company is only the second group in the past five years to make that many trips, according to USO Director Russell Bice. "Good Company beat out some very stiff competition to make the tour," said Bice. "Over 1,000 groups applied for the tour." Good Company has received the Department of Defense certificate of esteem for their past performances, according to group member Gary Toyn. Military officials have specificially asked for the group to return as part of the tour, due to the popularity of their past performances.Program director Davis said the tour is not only fun for the students, it is also an educational experience. "The tour helps them to see difficult countries. Plus there's the day-to-day performing." said Davis. "When they come back they have a wide field of experience." The group plays a wide variety of songs, ranging from Charlie Daniels and American to Kook and the Gang and Neil Diamond. They also play original songs penned by members of the group. USO Director Bice had nothing but praise for the college rock-and-rollers. "Good Company is the easiest group I've ever worked with. They are very professional," he added. Children and Disability A generation ago, many disabled children never reached adulthood. Today, thanks to advances in medical science, most children with limiting handicaps survive. What's more they are able, with improved social understanding, to lead productive, contributing lives. Ac cording to the Office of Special Education, 9.5 percent of all children now receive some sort of special education. And the Institute of Comprehensive Planning says that over 6 percent of all children have disabilities.

|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.|
