STATE COL L E G E NOVEMBER 1, 1963 OGDEN, UTAH VOL. 5, NO. 6 WEBER r r lJ2 V v Library Plans Finalized Mr. James R. Tolman, head librarian at WSC, announced today that progress is being made towards the planning of a new library. Hodgson and Holbrook, architects of the $1.5 million library which will take one and a half years to build, are now in the process of making the final, working drawing. At a recent meeting, the WSC Board of Trustees approved a change of plans for the structure that will result in a reduction of costs and make it easier to enlarge the structure at a future date. The original design was shaped like a cross. The rectangular building will will have 71,000 square feet of floor space, and a capacity of 200,000 books when all areas are used for library purposes. Mr. Tolman stated that construction of the building should begin sometime during the summer of 1964. The new three-story structure will be constructed east of the UB and will have a study room area for one thousand students. The basement floor will be used for classrooms the first five years because of the shortage of classrooms on campus. The first and second floors will contain the library processing areas, circulation department, periodicals and book racks. The structure will be air conditioned. Included in the library will be the audio-visual aids which will become part of that department. WSC's present library houses 55,000 volumes of which 10,000 are in storage at this time because of the shortage of shelf space. Mr. Tolman estimates that 5,000 more volumes will have to be put into storage before the new library is Students Receive Plea for Blood The campus has received a plea from St. Benedict Hospital for blood type "B positive." Art Hahn is in critical need of the blood type not a common type and all students having this type are urged to report to the hospital lab between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Please give the patient's name when donating. New Weber State p i ,3n ; I jv .TIT completed. This will be done in order to keep those books that are used most available to faculty and students. Ttobert D. Hodgson, architect, said exterior portions will be enhanced by panels and grill work of cast stone. The goal is to have the working drawings ready in time to invite contractors' bids next spring, said Dr. Miller, college president. Alien Cautions On Behavior Student behavior travelling to and from and during the game with Idaho State Nov. 9 will have a direct bearing on future events of a similar nature, student leaders said today. The WSC studentbody was reminded that the use of liquor during the period between 7:30 a.m., when the train leaves Ogden, and 9 p.m., when the train arrives back in Ogden, would be a direct violation to the college policy on liquor at school functions as stated on page 42 of the school catalog. Students were also encouraged to park their cars on the lower campus and walk the three blocks to the Union Station. The large number of cars left at the depot parking lot by train riders would create a serious problem, it was pointed out. The large number would also attract undue attention and invite vandalism to the unattended autos. Dr. Merle Allen, dean of students, in speaking of the coming events, said, "We're interested in extending as much freedom as possible to the students. It should be understood, however, that we hold certain responsibilities to ourselves and to the institution, and must, therefore, deal with any infraction that should occur."

Rachel tries to persuade Cates to plead guilty while Drummond proves that he must go through with the "Monkey Trial". Officers Launch Project 2000 Project 2000 is being launched by three of the four class officers and Dr. Merle Allen, their advisor. Project 2000 is a joint effort by the class officers of the senior, junior, and freshman classes, with the sophomore class officers withholding their support ; to provide Weber State College with a beautiful and useful patio at the north end of the Union Building. This patio will add greatly to the beauty of the Union Building and will provide a place for relaxing and refreshment during dances and at study times. It will provide a place for outside parties and dances for clubs and other organizations.These officers are asking every student at Weber to support this effort by contributing $1.00 per student and in order for this project to be a success every student will have to give their support. Booths will be set up for students to make their contributions and it is important for every student mak- "Twisting and plenty of fast music" are the main ingredients for the Sophomore Party, Wednesday, Nov. 6, according to Tex Bourland, Sophomore Class President. The party, appropriately called the "Grease Hop," begins at 8:30 p.m. in the Union Building and features the Hollywood Accents, a popular band with four electric guitars and a drummer. Everyone is invited and the dress will be casual. Door prizes will be provided by Fred M. Nye. Sophs Plan Class Parry - f 4 . i. J ing a contribution to sign his or her name to the roster. When the patio is poured these names will be placed in a steel box and buried in a corner of the patio to be opened up in the year 2000. At that time all of the alumni with their names on the roster will be honored with a dinner at a Dinner Dance at Homecoming. This is a milestone as a four-year school and it is only fitting that the students add to this milestone by supporting this project. There will be a progress chart in the Union Building showing the movement of this project toward the $2,000 goal. Leaders of mm INHERIT THE WIND, Lawrence and Lee's tense drama based on the historical Scopes "Monkey Trial" will open Nov. 7 and run through Nov. 9 at the Moench Auditorium. It is to be directed by Therald Todd, technical director, WSC. This play has had a highly controversial background; for example, in Rockford, 111. last summer, a student production of INHERIT THE WIND was taken off campus after the board of education ruled it as "too controversial". When Miss Ruth Ann Johnston, the dramatics coach went ahead with an independent production, the board fired her. The production has a highly competent cast, with two outstanding community actors playing the leading roles. Dean Wall, cast as Drummond, the counsel for the defense is an industrial engineer at Hill Air Force Base. Active in Theatre Guilds, he has played in several productions, including MY THREE ANGELS and THE GAZEBO. Robert Wood, cast as Brady, the prosecuting attorney, is an English teacher at Weber High. The Weber State alumnus has had vast directing and acting experience, including roles in Shakespearian dramas, community theatre productions, and college productions. Kenneth Post, the judge, was a former member of Ogden Civic Theatre, and has acted in such plays as THE CAINE MUTINY, THE TENDER TRAP, and HAMLET.' WSC students with major roles include: Robert Morris, a pre-law major, as Bertram Cates, the defendant. Morris is very interested in dramatics, and plays a very convincing character. David Wayne Vaughn, as Meeker, the ballif, was active in high school and college plays. Robert Clark, the Mayor in the production, playing in various dramatic productions while at Brigham Young University. The production will begin promptly at 8:15. General admission, $1.50. Students and faculty may pick up their free tickets at the cashier's office. "Project 2000"

|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.|
