Smart, chairman of the Eligibility Committee, reported to the Board of Control, it was the recommendation of his committee that the Awards Assembly be discontinued. Elections The Board of Control, functioning as the election committee, indicates that this year's campaign is off to a good start with nearly eighty candidates petitioning for offices. Primaries This week has marked the campaigning. Primary elections will be held next Tuesday. The following Tuesday, April 17, will be the platform assembly, with final candidates campaigning the following week. Final elections will be April 26, and 27. Results will be announced at a dance that Friday evening. He said the assembly seems to be more of high school policy than it is collegiate, since none of the state's other major institutions employ such a procedure. Too Long Then, too, the proportions of the assembly have grown so large that it is impractical to hold a two-hour assembly. The assembly will continue this year, however. Next year should mark it's discontinuance, and the different school divisions will take care iof the recognition of their own outstanding students. er Moves Forward; Standards Llove Up By Louise Taylor Associate Editor "There will be an upgrading and enforcing of academic standards as Weber College moves into four-year status," Ralph Marsden, student counselor, said this week. Mr. Marsden stated that Weber must enforce its standards to be on the same plane with four-year colleges. He made 'a comparison between the standards of Weber, U.S.U., B.Y.U, and U. of U. The results were: B.Y.U.-All students must obtain a 1.75 average the first semester. All sophomores, juniors, and seniors must obtain a 2.0 average. Anyone who falls below these averages is automatically suspended. U. of U.-All students must obtain 1.75 average the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth quarters. After the sixth quarter everyone must have a 1.9 average. Anyone Who falls below these averages is suspended. U.S.U.-A11 students must obtain a "C" or better in 12 hours of work. The students is placed on probation if he goes below this, and he must maintain a "C" ave rage during his probation or he will be suspended. Weber-All students must obtain a 1.5 average the first quarter, a 1.75 average the second and third quarters.and a 1.8 average for sophomores. Anyone who falls below a "D" is automatically suspended.The suspension program is based on a warning first quarter, and two probations which result in suspension.Mr. Marsden said that when students are accepted at Weber, they are accepted on the status they achieved at previous colleges. He said the responsibility for enforcing the academic standards rests with the Standards Committee, and that the Student Person- nel office serves as a means of helping students with their problems.He advised the students, who are having trouble deciding their majors to make use of the counseling services available.

|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.|
