Student Committee Adds Brick Sale to Boost Fund Will Aid Drive For Student Union Building Three-purpose bricks, latest wrinkle in the Weber college campaign for a larger school, were placed on the Ogden market Tuesday as the Student Committee for a Greater Weber college announced its drive for community funds to build, in part, a student union building on the college's new campus.The three-purpose bricks, aimed at raising funds, will also signify community support of a greater college and will be used as a permanent memorial to Weber supporters through their use in the construction of the building. City-Wide Canvass Characterized the Battle of the Bricks by masonry-minded members of the committee, the drive will consist of a city-wide canvass to sell the unique momentos at $5 apiece. Each Weber supporter purchasing one of the bricks will be asked to display it prominently to note his individual support of a greater Weber college. College coeds will be salesmen for the bricks. Members of the student committee have expressed hopes that the drive will be supported wholeheartedly by the community and that it will also serve to arouse a more complete spirit in the aims and ideals of the college. Political Participation Also uppermost in the minds of the college committee is the necessity for political participation in the coming Republican mass meetings in order that public officials can be informed of the aims of the college and urged to support the program. "In order to present the needs of the college to the public and to the people's representatives it is essential that all students participate in the coming mass meetings. "Political action is in the best American tradition and the aims of Weber college should be expressed through this medium," said Boyd Knowles, member of the committee. Republican mass meetings to choose delegates to the county convention will be held in Weber county precincts Monday, April 19. Also on the plan for action of the Student Committee for a Greater Weber college is a comprehensive publicity program designed to let the people of Utah know the college's needs and to urge them to support college expansion plans.

|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.|
