The president said any reduction will have to be taken from needed instructional supplies and equipment, budgeted items for matching federal grants, library acquisitions and reduced classes. "It is with reluctance that we consider this proposal and action will be deferred until further study is made in cooperation with other higher institutions of the state," he said.

|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.|
