Prices will be fixed so that a student can obtain a substantial meal for about " to 70 cents, or soup, salad and hot roll for about '.' cents. The meal will be served cafeteria style and the lounge will serve as dining room during the noon hour. Tables will be placed there for the students to eat on. There are two dining rooms for special parties which may be engaged, one which will accommodate a party of four and another for larger gatherings. The bookstore setup will remain much the same as it is now in building one. It will be located at the building's north end and the food facilities will be at the south. The lounge will comprise the center of the building. Before Spring Rush When asked about the completion date, J. Farrell Shepherd, bookstore manager, said, "The time we will move in is indefinite. We are hoping that it will be about a month to six weeks when the plant itself will be ready. The roof, drives, sidewalks and heating are all complete now. We want to move in before the spring quarter rush." The area in building I now used by the lounge and bookstore will be turned into a social science and classroom area. Definite plans for its use have not been made.

|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.|
