Four Year Plans Studied By 4 Y's How will the student government at Weber College be run when the change is made to a four year school ? This and many other questions concerning Weber are being studied by the "Four-Year Study on Student Government Committee", the 4-Y's, headed by Associated Students President, Dean Christ-ensen. New Constitution The purpose of this committee is to draw up a new constitution to serve Weber in its four year status. Under the direction of Bonnie Bates and Jim Sass the committee has been studying constitutions from select colleges and universities. This is to help form the best type of government at Weber. Library Closeness Provides Cozy Atmosphere "Cheek-to-cheek" study facilities in the library drew pleas this week for more work and less talk. Librarian James Tolman cautioned that library attendants don't want to have to discipline anyone but that adhisive tape may have to be resorted to unless more student courtesy and citizenship is exercised. "Students shouldn't use our facilities to reminisce as many do about last night's date with the football captain or homecoming queen," he said. Adding to difficulties this year, he pointed out, is the fact that the west room is now a periodical room rather than a group study area and consequently must be as quiet as the other.

|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.|
