She is pictured here on her way to Siberia, where she hopes to find a group of Alpha Kho and Shiirmea pledges who are rumored lo have left for that distant land last week. Margie is a sophomore at Weber college, and is majoring in Education. fin ?& H!n3D r Vol. 12, No. 10 Weber's 'Up to Bat' Again For New Campus As Legislature Opens A second try at making Weber college a four-year degree granting school and at obtaining funds for a long-range campus expansion program will be made during the next few months before the 28th session of the Utah legislature. SDearheaded by Pres. H. A. Dixon, Weber's indefatigable gen- eralissimo, the new bill to be offered the lawmakers reads: New Bill ."There shall be at Ogden City, a state school to be known as Weber State College. The course of study therein shall be the first two years of college work and in addition thereto said college is hereby empowered to grant four year college degrees in the fields of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Education, and to offer all necessary courses of study upon which such degrees are based. Said school shall be maintained by the State." If this bill passes, Weber will have passed another historic milestone since its inception as Weber Stake Academy in 1890, nearly 60 years ago. Another drive is aimed at securing legislative permission for sufficient funds to operate the new program and also to provide the initial impetus for the new campus expansion plan. Program Costs Pres. Dixon said that to install and operate the program would cost the state approximately $25,-000 per year in addition to the allotment of $225 to $260 per student, adding that the total will not exceed $65,000 a year for the first two years. This $65,000 per year is not additional cost to the state, he said, because it appropriates $225 to Coed of the Week Friday, January 14, 1949 $260 per student regardless of the institution attended. It is likely, however, that by making upper division work available in Ogden, many students will attend who are now barred from attending other schools. These are the only students who will increase the cost to the state, he said. New Curriculum The new curriculum would not duplicate such expensive professional curricula as medicine, law, dentistry, pharmacy, forestry, agriculture, engineering or social work, he explained. The president pointed out that the .proposed four-year Weber college would be larger in enrollment than 65 per cent of the four-year colleges in surrounding states. Between May 1 and Sept. 25, 1948, Weber transferred to institutions of higher learning 773 stduents. Their transcripts were sent to Brigham Young university, 50; Utah State Agricultural college, 145; University of Utah, 246; out of state, 142; not designated, 190. It was noted that since most of the transfers to the USAC and the U. of U., are students who desire to go out in the professions, the establishment of the four-year unit at Ogden would not seriously affect enrollment at either institution.The anticipated enrollment would far exceed the minimum specified by the Idaho and California surveys for an economical four-year unit.

John Christiansen, Wallace Clay, Veteran Students Show Increase In Enrollment Veteran enrollments in colleges and universities in Veterans Administration Branch 13 area (Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico) showed a slight increase in November, 1948, as compared with November, 1947, VA said today. Gains were noted in Colorado and New Mexico, while Utah and Wyoming showed a decrease. The . increase in the four-state-f- area was in contrast to the national trend, which showed a drop of 15 per cent in the number of veterans in institutions of higher learning under the G-I Bill and Public Law 16. The number of veterans attending colleges and nuiversities in the four-state area under both laws on November 30, 1948, totaled 33,543, as compared with 33,211 on the same date in 1947. Colorado reported 18,473; Utah, 8,583 New Mexico, 4,499 and Wyoming, 1,898. Number of Veterans The number of veterans in colleges and universities throughout the country on November 30, 1948, under both 1 aws was 1,050,668, compared with 1,235,761 on November 30, 1947 This drop in enrollment marked the reversal of a general upward trend that had continued since both laws went into effect. Despite the decrease in college enrollments nationally, the number of veterans in schools below the college level showed a slight increase. On November 30, 1948, there were 701,121 veterans in such schools under the two laws a two per cent increase over the 686, C64 of the previous year.

Any income that the veterans may earn on part-time jobs while attending educational institutions full-time, or earn while on-the-job training, is subject to taxation under existing tax laws. Any veteran whose eligibility for G-I Bill education runs out after he completes a major portion of a school semester which is not excess in cost may complete the remainder of the semester at gov-ment expense, VA said. The vet-teran also will receive subsistence allowances for the remainder of the semester. Veteran-students who acquire dependents or additional dependents while in training under the G-l Bill should notify Veterans Administration as soon as possible so that VA can determine whether they are eligible for increased subsistence payments. Changes M:ide Notice of change in dependency status should be sent to the VA regional office in which the veteran's records are kept. The notice should be accompanied by evidence of dependency, teieh as a certified copy of public records of birth, baptism or mairinge. Subsistence payments will be Increased as of the date evidence is received by VA, and will not be made retroactive to the date the veteran actually acquired thedependent.

|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.|
