Mr. Rampton charged that the present administration has failed to use foresight in planning facilities for the present increase in student enrollment. If elected Mr. Rampton stated that he would encourage the passage of a bill during the first session of the senate, providing $600,000 for Utah schools. This would include vocational school in Ogden and Salt Lake. "Under the present administration Utah's economy isn't growing fast enough. The missile dustry has been the only bo& to U t a h' s economy." Rampton said that the present industrial system in Utah provides 3000 jobs annually. "Utah can't be fully dependent on the missile industry she needs more and varied industries."Rampton claimed that the present tax structure is poor and doesn't encourage big business. "Property tax doesn't encourage industry." Mr. Rampton would like to shift the property tax load to the income tax load. "Railroad rates are too high in Utah. There has been little change in freight rates over the past 75 years. The rates for finished products is higher than raw material rates.

|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.|
