With Weber gearing its student officers to assume the role of adding the junior year to the curriculum next year, the number of officers to be elected necessitates holding the election of all the group's officers in one run-off. This consolidated election will be for Student Body Officers, Associated Men's Students, Associated Women's Students, Junior and Sophomore Class Officers, and Senators. There will be a primary and final ballot to determine the new choices. Election Committee The Board of Control will function as the Election Committee for the coming elections and stated that the new school Constitution issue will be on the final ballot, subject to the studentbody's approval or disapproval. A sample ballot will be published in the Signpost to familiarize the students with its format and candidates.The Board is scheduled to officiate the election and count the ballots. The results will be announced at a Student Body Dance the night of final ballotting. Assemblies Scheduled The nominating assembly is tentatively scheduled for the first week of April, with the platform assembly the following week. At the suggestion of K. Earl Erickson that "the school is in need of a well organized dance band," the board is exploring the possibilities of setting aside small scholarships to stimulate interest in this group. A thirteen member school group would eliminate hiring outside groups for every function. They would represent the school at it's own function as well as by invitation at other colleges. Because of union difficulties, the proposal will have to be studied further before definite action is taken.

|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.|
