IN PLACEMENT BUREAU Applications Being T alcen iovernment Loa Applications are now being accepted in the Placement Bureau for students who wish a National Defense Student Loan. Although anyone can apply, the act provides that in the selection of students to receive National Defense loans, "Special consideration" shall be given to the following two categories of students: 1. "Students with a superior academic background who express a desire to teach in elementary and secondary schools." 2. "Students whose academic background indicates a superior capacity or preparation in science, mathematics, engineering, or a modern foreign language." U. S. Nationals Student borrowers must be United States nationals. This requirement is implied in the provision of the act that the borrower must take an oath or make affirmation of allegiance to the United States. In order to be eligible for a loan, a needy student applicant must meet two academic criteria specified in the Act. 1. He must be a full-time college student on either the undergraduate or graduate level. 2. He must be in good standing and capable of maintaining such standing. The primary and most essential condition of an applicant's eligibility for such a loan is that he is in need of the requested loan in order to complete his courses of study. Evaluate Finances In determining the need, members of the loan committee will evaluate the financial circumstances of both the applicant and his family. The money obtained through the loan can be used only for college-related expenses that have been listed on the application. Existing obligations cannot be paid with the loan unless the repayment of the debt is necessary for the student to remain in college. Such arrangements should be made with Milton C. Mecham, chairman of the loan committee. By PATTI MEIKLE Signpost Associate Editor (Editor's note: This is the sixth in a series of student opinion polls on pertinent . . . and impertinent . . . subjects.) Question: What do you think of modern art Juanita Cottle, a freshman, said, "I enjoy modern art, but I wouldn't- buy a modern painting for my home." Bonnie Bates, aonther freshman: "I can't concede that some of the paintings hanging in the halls are great works of art when I could do that well myself." ' "When you try to judge modern art by the standards of Rembrandt and Van Gogh, it's like trying to judge daisies with daffodils," Ron Halverson, a sophomore, said. "You just can't do it. Person ally, I prefer Rembrandt to today's artists, but modern art has its place, too." Ken Butler, a sophomore commented: "I don't like it because I don't understand it. It expresses absolutely nothing to me." "I like modern art." said Linda Monk, a freshman. "Some of it is pretty weird, but the colors are exciting. To me, this type of art typifies the speed of today's life." Bob Sanders, a sophomore, made final comment: "What fascinates me about modern art is the way a guy can stand across the room and fling paint on the canvas so that whatever way you .turn the picture, it's right side up. Frankly, a picture of a couple of gunny sacks soaked in paint doesn't say a thing to me."

Winners will be selected at a drawing to be arranged during the first week of winter quarter.

|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.|
