Campus Appropriation Enriches Homecoming Dear Alum, Tempus fugit! But time offers memories of great things that grow more dear every time a sheet is torn off the calendar. We'll wager the victory bell against your old racoon coat that "Weber years" have a special place in your memory corner. We still sing "Purple and White", walk up squeaky stairs in the West Central, and study when there isn't anything else to do. Homecoming rolls around once a year to refresh old memories and renew those precious friendships. But when you're home today, you'll notice people on campus are even happier than usual. One million, one hundred and fifty thousand dollars is a stimulus to make most everyone happy, especially if it promises a new home, a home on the hill for Weber College!Everyone who calls Weber his school feels a thrill and responsibility at the same time for this "first born" in Weber's new chapter of history. Thanks, Alum, for helping make Weber great enough to more than deserve this new future she has. With colors high, we the students of Weber today, welcome you back!

JUDGMENT When you question your wife's judgment, remember she married you. Woodmen of the World Mag. $1,150,000 Granted To Weber for New Buildings An appropriation of $1,150,000 was granted by the Utah state board of examiners to Weber College last week for the construction of a new classroom building and heating plant on the new campus at fortieth and Harrison. Work on the plans for the building has been under way for the past three months indicating that construction may begin very soon. A plan for operating Weber College on a split campus basis was also submitted and approved by the state board of examiners. In outlining the split campus program President Dixon reported to the board that the college plans to build one classroom building on the new campus site. This will give Weber 80,000 additional square feet of floor space. The College proposes to transfer all classwork to the new campus, with the exception of the shop classes and some laboratory periods in, drafting, photography, and radio. Also, during bad weather students will have to return to the old campus for physical education classes twice a week. Assemblies, dances, lectures, plays, and school concerts will be held on the old campus. According to President Dixon, when the program begins, it will enable the college to close the Central Building, West Central Building, and the war surplus annex buildings. The gymnasium, Moench, and Vocational buildings will remain in operation on the old campu3. A total of approximately $28,000 will be cut from operating costs by closing, these buildings. This will save enough to operate and maintain the new building according to Dr. Dixon's report. Save your money, so that when you have silver in your hair, you'll have gold in your purse.

|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.|
