TSie Problem The world situation is very precarious today, and the success or failure of the free world depends upon us, the leaders of tomorrow. Questions are being posed by scholars and the leading men of our nation as to whether we will be able to meet the problems that arise and solve them. The only way we can answer these question's is through education. Understand First we must understand the problems, and understand ing comes through study and work. Our colleges and universities offer many ways to help us gain the understanding we need to solve the problems. First, many college classes tea ch the individual about the problems of our country and help him reach a conclusion as to how they could be solved. Good Will Classes offer the student the opportunity to learn ,of foreign countries and their people. Through analyzing different cultures and studying their problems, we can promote good will and friendship among the people of the world. Colleges offer the students the chance to participate in student government activities; moreover, they help develop leadership and administrative qualities in an individual. Meet People Most important, colleges offer the student the opportunity to meet new people and promote 'cooperation among others. One of the most important objectives in life is being able to understand others and their problems. In order to obtain world peace, we must be able to understand and get along with our own people before attempting to grasp the world's problems. Everyone The solution of world peace is a big problem and is up to every person, not any single group or person. j Will you be able to meet the challenging problems head on and solve them, or will you be one who says, "Let someone else solve them. I have more important things to do." Buried Alive? "He awoke with a start. Immediately he sensed that he was some place else, no longer in the safety of his garret. A strangdr was standing above him with a razor, shaving him. "Stop!" Devon tried to twist himself away, but he was powerless. "Stop it! I won't be obligated," he shouted. The stranger paid no heed but finished and went away. Devon tried to get up but couldn't move. It was like a dream. He heard footsteps coming toward him and his mother stood over him for a moment with a tear in her eye, then moved on. More footsteps. Now the stranger was back with the landlord. "Queer character," he said, looking down at him, "always muttering something about being free." "yea," said the stranger, "there's a lot like him. Come on, help me put the lid on him the hearse is wanting." Help! Excitement such as this together with poetry iand talent are all found in theScribulus; yet, it is a dying magazine and may soon be buried because you do not have the interest. Scribulus is the literary magazine of Weber College. It could be as good as ,any college literary publication in the state. The talent is here. All it needs is YOU. Corrie Oborn, the new editor, is bubbling over with ideas: a theme for the magazine, professional printing, and a contest with qualified judges. Sounds fun, The challenge is there, YOU accept it, watch the bulletin board for announcements or contact Corrie for details. Let's not let OUR magazine die!

|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.|
