Several significant steps toward the growth and development of Weber State College were taken in the sale of bond revenue and appointment of an academic v.p. A syndicate of five financial institutions purchased $17.5 million of the bonds with the remaining $500,000 sold to the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Agency.

The board also approved the appointment of Gary L. Carson to the head of the psychology department and Dr. Harley K. Adamson as chairman of the secondary education department.

PERSONNEL CHANGES New personnel changes will become:' effective August 1. Construction of the Union Building addition began Tuesday, with a portion of the UB parking lot now blocked from traffic. The Culp Construction Company of Salt Lake City has been awarded contract for construction which is scheduled for completion in 1968. Included in the new addition will be aballroom, alumni offices, restaurant and facilities for a smoking lounge. Miller said the 90,000 sq. foot expansion would more than double the present Union Building, which houses studentbody offices, book- FUTURE PLANS store, bowling alley and pool tables, cafeteria and publication offices.

Future campus plans include construction of an administration building and new high-rise dormitories. Present dormitory halls will also be landscaped. And as the campus grows physically, the internal organization is also changing with reorganization of administrative offices and rewriting of the constitution. Jerry Nebeker, past WSC first vice-president, said the new constitution' should be ready for rad-ification by student vote next fall. CONSTITUTION REVISED A constitutional convention was called last December to rewrite the student constitution to meet the administrative changes. The constitutional committee is continuing its work during the summer months, Nebeker said, to meet the fall deadline. Constitutional committee chairman is Peggy Heffernan, 1966 senior class senator.

|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.|
