UB Cafeteria Plans 'Purple Pussycat' Return Whether you dig a quiet nook for a late-night bite or crave a noisy scene where they tromp and stomp both appetites can now be appeased at Weber State. Beginning Monday, March 28, the "Purple Pussycat", made popular at the last UB Birthday Party, will return for a trial engagement at the UB cafeteria. Although no shows have been scheduled, late-owl students congregating at this exclusive retreat can expect food and entertainment for a minimal fee. Hamburgers, soft drinks, and other culinary delicacies, prepared by our Snack Bar, will be served from 6:00-10:00. The dinners will be on a buffet, carry-your-own-food basis. Music will be provided by Weber's new. juke box, which promises continual entertainment when properly approached by 2 nickels, a dime, or one quarter. Proprietors of this small, intimate establishment have warned that the "Pussycat" will remain open only if enough students support it. Action to open this private gathering place was initiated by students, but if the "Pussy" is suitably ignored, doors will close in two weeks. Plan to attend the quiet grand opening next Monday at 6:00 p.m. No reservations, no cover charge, and best of all, it's come as you are!

The following quotes are just a few of the many remarks made by famous, well-known music critics: "Abravanel and his Utah forces continue to produce exceptional recordings of the most varied sort of music." This quote was taken from High Fidelity Magazine by Mr. Eric Salzman. R. Dittmer, Editor of the Chicago American in speaking of "Mahler 8th Symphony", said, "Superb The most important new release in more than 100 this spring." And H. Kupferberg in the N.Y.

Army ROTC Sophomores Urged to Join Campus Military The United States Army ROTC Department of Weber State College recently announced plans for recruiting sophomore students into the ROTC Two-Year Program. In order to qualify, a sophomore must accomplish two examinations, written and physical, and attend abasic ROTC Summer Camp conducted at Fort Knox, Kentucky, this summer before officially enrolling into the program during Fall Quarter 1966. This is the first year Army ROTC has been on the Weber State campus. Students presently enrolled in the program attend classes on campus with the exception of Leadership Laboratory which is conducted at the University of Utah. All indications point toward the possibility of conducting all training on campus next year. The changing world situation has created an increased need for military personnel of all ranks. Because of this increased need, all types and categories of deferments are being re-evaluated to reclassify some individuals for t'siW - Al, K VkW'JA " V f A', , Beaver Mountain I VfMA-ir ' ' Blue Mountain C I' hWASt 4$ r S , yTT Brian Head 11 I .tVi iWv' VI U Brighton U fMKf $ff& Z, 1, I1 I -J.WJf Snow Basin Lnnr. fT-''Mk.'iirill.Mlinii rrfrftTtt t-l i- I J&lf Snow Park AND YOU'LL BE BACK! WEBER STATE COLLEGE, OGDEN, UTAH Rodeo. S i,i.,i,,u.iu.M.iu,ii y " i mm Li ., " Maurice Abravanet current draft quotas; Through the ROTC Program a student will receive a ROTC deferment which will afford hfm greater assurance of completing his college education before fulfilling than presently offered under a plain student deferment. Aside from this aspect, a college graduate, if fully qualified, can become a leader and serve his country as a commissioned officer. After a sophomore student completes the prerequisite as stated above, he will enroll Into Military Science next fall as a junior and proceed working toward his commission. At this time students will begin drawing $40.00 a month retainer fee, be provided all texts, materials, and uniforms at no expense to the student. The US Army representative on campus is Captain Carlisle, who may be contacted any Thursday afternoon from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Library room 4, or by writing a letter of inquiry to Captain Allen D. Carlisle, Military Science Department, University of Utah, Salt Lake City. Senator Lee White presented a worthy cause before the Senate last Thursday night: a budget request for the Rodeo Club. A delegation from Rodeo Club, headed by advisor Robert Salmon, attended the Senate, and Lee explained the purposes and activities of the Club and its benefits to the studentbody. As Lee explained, WSC's Rodeo Club is a member of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association, which consists of six regions of approximately twenty teams per region. The club makes trips to compete with Montana, Idaho, and Utah colleges and universities, but these trips have been limited in the past because the expenses for them have to come out of the member's pockets. Last spring this put Weber's contestants in the unfortunate situation of having qualified for the National Finals, but of being unable to go for lack of funds. As Mr. Salmon pointed out, this not only discourages Rodeo activity at WSC, but also prevents Weber from getting national recognition and growth in prestige. Rodeo Club demonstrated its potential last spring when it produced a successful and well-attended rodeo for WSC students and Ogden community. Club members feel confident that with the back of the studentbody, this production can become a successful annual event with all-around benefits to Weber State. As Mr. Salmon explained, "This isalong-range plan; we want to look into the future and plan for it." The Senate expressed appreciation and interest in Rodeo Club, and Speaker Kent Bulkley explained that while funds are very limited for the remainder of this school year, the club should submit its budget as a long range request to be considered in next year's budget. Senator Jerry Nebeker raised the next item of business: a bill to keep the Senate up on money matters. "I feel that it's vitally important to the Senate," Jerry explained, "that it be kept aware of the studentbody financial standing at all times. This is the only way we can function effectively." Other Senators agreed unanimously in passing the bill, which requires a monthly written financial report from the office of the February 25, 1966 Business and Finance Vice President, and a disclosure of all reserve funds and expenditures from these funds. Money matters continued to hold the Senate's attention as Editor Jack Suttlemyre brought his itemized Signpost budget before the Senators for approval. Since it involved funds previously allocated, the Senate was able to pass the budget and thus ensure Signpost publication for the remainder of the year.

|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.|
