Dr. Olpin included the atomic bomb in the category of applications of known scientific facts. "The war has seen the greatest perod in history of applying science but this development will be hampered if pure research does not soon again begin to uncover new facts," he declared. Calling the future the time of research he said atomic energy can be a force of great good to society. "But Ihe nation which strikes the first blow in a future war will be the winner-this is the portent of our future if we cannot get along together," he warned.

|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.|
