Let's Act Our Age ARE WE ALL COLLEGE STUDENTS? One of the most serious problems arising with the move to the new campus is that of lounging facilities. In contrast with the lower campus, the new one has no grass, trees, gymnasium, fountain, musical entertainment, or town nearby. Consequently, students have substituted the group study room of the library as a place for games, eating, noise, and play. As college men and women, who should realize that this disrespect for the library advisors and the use of one of the finest equipped libraries in the country as a place for socializing defeats the purpose for which it was established. Plans for next year includes grass around the buildings and other outside facilities which should relieve the problem now existing in the library. Meanwhile, we ask for your cooperation in using empty labs and classrooms where you are free to talk and socialize; and restoring the library to a place for quiet study. The lounge, it should be remembered, is incorporated in the administration building, and should be treated accordingly. It shouldn't be very hard for college students to control their activity in the lounge and return it to the type of room it was intended to be; one for quiet recreation and rest. It isn't our desire to dictate policies to the students, but we hope that you may realize that there is need for a change in attitude. By careful consideration of the problem and action by the students to solve it, our fine Weber spirit of cooperation can be maintained. Sincerely, Board of Control New Look Project Gets Underway to Improve Grounds and Recreational Facilities By Gary L. Peterson Weber College students entering next fall will not have to face the same bleak bareness on the new campus that we have to look at each day of this beautiful spring. Exact details and plans are lacking, but the administration is proceeding with their proposed program of campus beautification. Wallace D. Baddley, Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds, says they are in the process of hiring a landscape architect to complete their plans, and assures us of some improvements by the fall of 1955. Plant Grass The bare ground surrounding the buildings will be seeded into lawn as soon as water is available, probably by mid-May. The playground area, north of the stadium, will depend on water from the Weber Basin Project and will not be ready for baseball and softball use until 1956-57 or later. One, and possibly two, tennis courts are to be constructed this summer on the playground site and will be ready for use next spring. Evergreen landscaping, as proposed, will begin this fall and be continued in the spring of 1956. Other deciduous trees and gardens, along with roses and shrubs, will be planted as funds are made available. The professors in the Life Science division will assist in Antigone Cast Is Announced By Cellar Group The forthcoming Cellar Theater production, "Antigone," has been fully cast, according to the "director.

However, the play runs continuous the nights of May 9 through May 14. This makes possible accommodations for all students interested in attending. the plans as all plant life will be available for study and research by the department. Clubs Help Student interest in the project is being solicited through the social clubs. Planners hope to work with clubs in designing and building picnic areas in the foothills above the stadium. These natural areas, when developed, will be available for student body or club parties. We are proud of Weber now, but with the passing of a few short years we will look at a bigger, greater, and better WeberCollege. Dinner-Dance to Feature Two Plates Tonight is Weber College's annual dinner dance, "Oriental Tea Garden". Soft lights, small tables, and atmospheric decorations will set the mood of an oriental tea garden. The dance will be held in the Weber College ballroom at 9 p.m. Admission is $2.50 a couple. Dik Watkins and his orchestra, composed mostly of Weber College men, will provide the dance music. There will be two menus to choose from: a Chinese plate and an American plate.

Lund as she casts her vote for the Mill be even harder, but be sure to anyway ! ans Construction may start on a $525,000 shop building this July if bids can be awarded by then, President William P. Miller said this week. The legislature appropriated that sum of money to Weber College for the building which will be located north and east of Building 4. The structure should be ready for use by September of 1956. The second building planned for the near future is a maintenance building which would house the departments now in the basement of West Central on the lower campus. The storage and receiving department and maintenance will have their headquarters here. The building will cost about $60,000 and will be located north of the heating plant. Plans are being considered for moving the old C.I., or College Inn, from the lower campus to a site behind Building 4. A definite decision should be reached in the next 30 days. If this is done, the present bookstore may be abandoned and classrooms will take its place. These are only tentative plans but are being seriously considered to take care of the growing number of students.The administration is trying to find ways of providing better facilities and more space for the students. They are not trying to curtail anything. President Miller expresses his appreciation for the co-operation of the students in the use of the buildings and for managing without sufficient student facilities.

|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.|
