- V OLUME XVI OGDEN, UTAH, January 30, 1953 Number 7 Foyr-year Weber Plans for the "greater Weber College" are now rolling ahead with increasing momentum, following a faculty session at which details were discussed and approved in rapid-fire action revealing the climax of years of effort for the institution.Efforts of the area's best civic leadership will be rewarded when the program gains authorization during the current session of the state legislature. This was the import of remarks made at the special meeting. 6. Ui Singing Musettes entertain Utah State Legislature. They are left to right: Carolyn Harmer, Jan Heiner, Joan Barker, Lucille Petty, Karen Blair, Barbara Birkhead, Barbara Rampton, Doris Bateman, Jane Powell, Darhle Poulter, Shirley Taylor, and Norma Erickson. seated in the background (center) is J. Francis Fowles, Senator from Weber County and immediate past President of the Senate, and Merrill Davis of Salt Lake County, Speaker of Utah House of Representatives. Topping the list was the announcement of a bill for the four-year college, which by now should be in the hands of the state legislature. Whatever reception it gets will be mainly the work of the Republican majorities of both the House and Senate. Gov. J. Bracken Lee has indicated that he will not sign the bill for a four-year charter if it does pass the legislature unless such expansion is recommended by a state survey on higher education.The faculty voted approval of such a survey. It was pointed out that Weber has nothing to fear from such a study. However, sentiment was expressed that such a survey is hardly needed at the present time to show need for a four-year college in the Ogden area. Such a survey would also mean further delay in taking this urgent step, it was pointed out. Dr. Henry Aldous Dixon reported that appearance of Weber students in a musical program before the legislature last week has served to remind the solons that there are human values which transcend dollars. Another proposed bill which came in for discussion would sell the west half of the downtown campus and devote proceeds to the new building program on the upper campus. Dr. Dixon commented that the state has expressed interest in obtaining some of the lower campus buildings for offices Faculty Member Edits Publication Wayne Carver, Weber College English instructor, was recently appointed editor of a new literary magazine to be published by the University of Utah English department.In addition to Weber College activities, Mr. Carver has been attending classes at the University of Utah, striving for a Ph.D. "Perspective," the publication Mr. Carver will edit, will contain short stories, poetry and reflective essays on literary and related matters in the fields of history, philosophy and the arts. The first publication will appear February 15. One publication will come off the press each month of the quarter, Mr. Carver stated. it now maintains at considerable expense in Ogden. A cash settlement would be made with the college in such a transaction. Present plans would close down both Central buildings if they are not sold by the opening of next school year. A third bill reported upon before the group would request $391,864 for development of the new buildings and grounds at the Mt. Ogden site. Besides roads, curb and gutters, sidewalks, water systems and other similar facilities, this bill would provide finances for additional land purchases at a cost of $67,000, furniture and fixtures for the classroom structures at $84,544, and a new shop building at a cost of $350,000. It would permit buying of approximately 14 acres adjacent to the present holdings. This bill has approval of the (Cont. on page 2, col 3) Scribulus Comes Out Soon, Style Is Slap-Happy Scribulus, the school magazine, will go to the printers this weekend, according to Sharon Gerber, editor. She expects the publication to be off the presses in two weeks. The comment should be more humorous and more wise in the v.isc-cracking department than even before, according to Gerber. In one article, artist Glenn Dickson tells of his experiences in offering a woman love in the traditional manner and then finding she wanted her wooing rough side out.

|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.|
