She pointed out that the library is one of the most extensive of any junior college in this area. Students are urged to make better use of its facilities.

They tied Snow college 6-6 and lost 20-0 to Carbon in the other two games. Weber, on the other hand, has only two league encounters in the records. They tripped SICE 24-14 in one contest and lost to Boise in the other. In the 1948 meeting of the two squads the Wildcats were victorious 26-0. With SICE the only common opponant on the schedule of both schools the comparison would favor Weber by several touchdowns.

The Board of Education met last Friday to discuss the releasing of funds for construction of the new stadium and it is hoped that work on it can soon begin. Clearing of weeds, trash, the uprooting of an apple orchard, the grading, filling and leveling of the site is under way. Bids for this work ranged from $8,000 to $16 000. Parsons and Fife were low bidders and were given the job with 45 days to complete the grading. -1- The theatre's winter production will be "Family Portrait", a story of the home life of Christ.

|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.|
