Alums Help Weber Effort, Dixon Says As Weber's annual homecoming-fwheel" and push with us until our-pvhlle. celebration really gets underway to day, I wish to extend warmest greetings and a sincere welcome to all members of the alumni who have returned to the alma mater to renew old friendships and to revive some of the pleasant memories of college days. Particularly do we welcome you this year because you have contrib uted so generously, in time, money and effort, to help all of us realize a dream of many years a four-year curriculum for Weber college. Thanks to your help, we now are closer to this goal than at any time in our history. It is our wish to expand the course of study . to comprise four years in many desperately needed finlrls We have come this far with your help. We hope you wall keep before. Needless to say, those sav- your shoulder at the "four-year ings are suusLanuai u.nu kuiu. mutual dream comes true. Presently in the planning stage is the overall blueprint for the new campus including landscaping, roads, drainage, piping of water and the designing and construction of buildings. I feel that the iron is hot right now and that while the economics of our state and people are fluid we must make a vigorous attempt to achieve our ends or we will miss the opportunity of a lifetime We must pull together 365 days a year if we are going to secure for our young people the facilities and the program they hae deserved for the past ten years. Savings in time and money to them and to their parents have been disclosed If ever in its history our college faced a challenge with a commen surate opportunity, it faces that challenge with its opportunity now! If ever our students, faculty and alumni worked together, they must do so now. And if ever that teamwork was appreciated, it is apprec iated now! My personal gratitude goes out to the alumni officers and membership for their unity and zeal in the advancement of this program. I know of no college with as cooperative and industrious a group of alumni as ours. And I know of no school which, as a result, owes more to its alumni than ours does. We will repay that debt by continuing to foster the highest ideals of scholarship, fellowship and citizenship. A college cannot do more; it should not do less.

|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.|
