All junior high and senior high school classes and the general public are welcome. Etchings From his youth until the year 1665, four years before his death, Rembrandt worked with the etching needle and burin. Indeed, during the years 1625-1631, while living in Leyden, his birthplace, he worked on etchings only.-And he continued in this media in Amsterdam, even while he was establishing himself as one of the greatest painters of all times. The technique of etching was further developed in Ithe Nether lands of the Seventeenth Century than elsewhere in Europe; and Rembrandt largely contributed to this art form. His recipe of a mixture of resin and mastic for the etching ground is still used today. Experimented j Rembrandt developed his methods during the years, for he was never satisfied, and in consequence experimented in new ways it bring perfection. His work shows the variation of his methods. One of his paintings, "Aristotle Contemplating the Bust of Homer," recently brought the highest price in the history of art, $2,300,000.

|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.|
