The campus plan, prepared by Lawrence W. Olpin, Arthur VV. Grix, Fred L. Markham and Smealh, Allred and Frehner, includes road systems, parking area, stadium, and campus buildings. Beauty, untility and convenience are all featured in the plan. A second bid for a four-year Weber college will be submitted to the Utah state legislature early next year, according to Weber college President Henry Aldous Dixon. He stated that many students, faculty and community citizen committees are now completing final preparations for the drive that will be taken to the Utah lawmaking body when it convenes, in mid-January. Limited Expansion Limited curriculum expansion In three major fields and a million dollar plus campus-building appropriation wil be included in hte request. A degree granting status in business education, the arts and sciences and education will be requested. Lower division subjects will be maintained as they now are. President Dixon emphasized that the college is not seeking to duplicate expensive upper division and graduate professional curricula such as medicine, pharmacy, forestry, agriculture, engineering or social work. Low Cost He stated that statistics show it would cost approximately $130,- 000 a year for the coming bien-nium to set up and operate the upper division curriculum re quested, $65,000 from the State and $65,000 from fees. The saving to students would be many times that amount. "Weber college expansion will help to give youth and adults of the Ogden area an even educational break," President Dixon said. Ho cited a survey of 1481 Weber students which revealed that over 400 who desire to complete college cannot afford to go away to college and that 98 per cent of the Weber student body would rather stay at Weber for upper division work. Half-Million Saving It costs Weber students $150 to $200 per year to attend school at home, President Dixon said, but it costs Weber graduates from $700 to $1200 to attend college away from home. If 600 upper division students attend school at home, the taxpayers of this area would be saved $480,000 to $500,000 per year, with an expenditure by the state of only $65,000. The purchasing power the four-year college would hold in the area would mount to more than a million dollars a year, President Dixon pointed out. "An ROTC unit is desperately needed at Ogden," President Dixon said. "It is a great handicap to Ogden youth and a serious disadvantage to the country to leave 20 per cent of the population with-(Cont. rage 7, Col. 3) iMi' irM i "" "" -T-"S Vol. 12, No. 9, Friday, Dec. 10, 1948 Dining, Dancing Slated For Christmas Party Dinner at the El Rancho Cordova in Salt Lake City, and dancing at the Coconut Grove are the main plans for the Spanish Guild Christmas party. The visit to Salt Lake is an annual affair for the guild. This year it will be Dec. 29, at 7 p. m. The 12 members are invited to bring their dates along. The club officers. Lowell Ralph, Henery Chai, Ona Beus and Keith Godfrey, are looking forward to the 29th and hope the party will be as successful as they have been in past years. The overall master plans for the new Weber college campus covering the 180 acre site have been completed and will be submitted to the State Board of Education, Saturday December 17, for final approval, announced President Henry Aldous Dixon, last week. Six Months Work The master draft is the result of over six months work by a designing committee consisting of Lawrence D. Olpin, chairman, Arthur W. Grix, Fred L. Markham, and the Landscape Architects Smeath, Allred and Frehner. Additional assistance was lent by the Weber college building and campus committee and the Weber college faculty. Serving as merely a guide to the future placement of college build ings, roads, and other structures, the plan is flexible and provides for easy changes if they should prove necessary. Ample space has been left around each building in order that the building architects will have adequate freedom in the planning of buildings. Alowances have also been made for future enrollment trends which may make modifications necessary. The crowning feature of the entire master plan is the Student Union Building. It will be located in the exact center of the campus situated on the summit of a gradual uninterrupted slope, extending from Harrison boulevard approximately three blocks eastward. This Twill be the Students own build- ing, housing club-rooms, student body offices, cafeteria, and other student space needs. Quadrangle Campus The heart of the campus will center around a quadrangle consisting of the Business and Administration building on the north, Student Union building on the East, Library and Social Science building on the south, and the Science and Humanities building on the west. "Already 80,000 square feet of classroom space consisting of the Science and Humanities buildings, a stadium, and a heating plant have been requested from the State Legislature," stated Dr. Dixon. Proposed Stadium The proposed stadium will be located in a natural amphi-theatre at the south end of the campus. The area will include a field house, practice field, and plenty of parking space for automobiles. Fortieth street on the west side of the stadium, and the proposed mountain highway on the east will furnish easy access to the stadium. In addition to the master plan, a sketch has been prepared of the approach to the campus on Harrison boulevard. Ornamental gates and a monument will be erected along Harison boulevard at the approach entrance. Over a square block of grass will be planted on the approach area.

|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.|
