January iay See Start f New Gym The 1957 Utah Legislature authorized the planning of a new gymnasium for Weber College to cost not to exceed $1,250,000, and appropriated $150,000 of this amount, President William P. Miller said yesterday. Following the adjournment of the legislature, the State Building Board appointed an architectural firm to develop the plans for this building, he said, adding, that the firm of Grix, Plowgian, and Blackburn is developing the plans. Visited Many Gyms Members of the architectural firm, the Weber College Physical Education staff, and representatives of the administration of Weber College have visited gymnasiums throughout the West as preparation for the development of these plans, he said. The 1950 Legislature appropriated the balance of $1,100,000 to complete this project. This, with the $150,000 appropriated by the 1957 Legislature, equaled the original determination of $1,250,000 as the total cost. The architects were authorized to develop plans only to the schematic stage prior to this second appropriation he explained, noting that the architectural firm is now authorized to continue with the plans in preparation for bidding. Still Not Known It is not known when the balance of $1,100,000 will actually be available for this purpose. This will not be known until next September, President Miller said. At that time the State Finance Commission will have determined the financial condition of the State at the close of the biennium, which is June 30, 1959. He said that at some date after September or October, when sufficient funds are available, the State Board of Examiners will make those funds available for construction purposes, and it is assumed that the State Building Board will determine the order of priority for the use of these funds. It is hoped that this money will be available to begin construction about January 1, or early in the spring of 1900.

|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.|
