I Sec. 562, P. L. & R. : Friday, May 28, 1948 Number 23 snimdla Kates o Symbolizing graduation exercises to occur next Friday are the two Weber students above who have completed two pleasant but grueling years at the old school. Ross Powell will receive the associate of science degree. Ruth Crawford will get the associate of science. Along with 461 other students, the largest Weber graduating class in history, they will become alumni next week. High School Grads Note: --That Door Is Ooen! Weber college extends to prospective freshmen the promise of enjoyingnew buildings erected on 180 acres of beautiful campus grounds ideally located at the base of Mount Ogden. Architectural plans have already been completed for construction of two new classroom buildings, a new library, student union building, administrative offices, stadium, football field, and fieldhousc with additional plans being provided almost daily. But that is not all. Next year's freshmen have every reason to believe they may complete their education at Weber college. By furthering a cause well upon its way toward realization, they may enjoy the distinction of being the first to graduate from a four-year Weber college. Attractions Varied In addition to this bright prospect, attractions provided by our college are varied. Diversified courses ranging from cosmetology, refrigeration, watchmaking, and electricity, through regular pre-medical, pre-law, pre-dental and other academic courses in the day school, to butcnering, canay maiung, ana upuuisici m& in evening classes comprise the curriculum. k Of a staff of 83 teachers, 16 have earned doctorates, while the remainder, for the most part, hold master's degrees and are working towards their doctor's degree in their respective professions, f Time-Honored Customs Of time-honored customs widely regarded with reverent solemnity and approving respect, none is more significant nor more endeared to American hearts than annual commencement exercises. Traditional "cap-and-gown" ceremonies have long since come to be looked upon as unmistakable milestones on the highway to assured success and ultimate happiness. And so it is with gravity and with pride we dedicate this, the final Spring issue of . Signpost, to the "Class of '48."

|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.|
