Election day has passed and both students and faculty can breathe a sigh of relief. Weber is back to her normal status and so much the better. Something has been gained by the election. The people of Utah have made it clear that they want education by the people and for the people. The vote was snowed under by a near 2 to 1 margin, failing by at least 40,000 votes. There can be no question now about shifting public responsibility into private hands. The people want to keep education high, regardless of the tax increase that will most probably be involved.The election this year proved to be a most unusual one. The 1950 record was reached when 160,000 Utahn's turned out to vote. This proved that the voters were alert and interested in the issues that were in question. It also points to the effectiveness of those who participated in the drive to keep Weber under state support. Bill Dissolved The bill that was passed last December is the same as if it had never beeri presented. Weber will continue as a state institution. It is hoped that when the legislature convenes in January, the members will use wise judgement in considering the future of higher education. It is our opinion that a study should be made of the needs and the effectiveness of present education in the state and that work will be done toward forwarding it instead of closing down or transferring institutions. The vote has turned out for the good of the school and the community. President Miller has taken the optimistic view for the future. He looks forward to the building and finishing of a complete Weber College in the next ten or fifteen years; which will include a fieldhouse, library building and several more classroom buildings. "We hope to buy 25 acres south of the present campus which will be made into parking lots and classrooms." In about this same length of time Ogden and vicinity will have produced about 4000 prospective students. This number is approximately the same as the USAC had enrolled just a few years ago. There is a bright future ahead for Weber College. And we as the future parents of its students should keep our thoughts working toward that goal of a bigger and better Weber. A. M. S.

|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.|
