Firats s dosciflss prs9 coons ff g5oDg miatDomia by Larry Yurth Early in May the Committee on National Fraternities of the Inter-Fraternal Council on campus decided that its policy on national fraternities would favor their establishment on this campus. Their statement says, "We as a committee are committed to the idea of accepting natimnal fraternities and sororities on the Weber State College campus. It is the recommendation of this committee that we allow national fraternity and sorority representatives to visit the campus to present their programs to all those interested in going national. We have concluded that national fraternities and sororities should be allowed to colonize if our findings indicate a positive interest on the part of the students and if other pertinent problems can be resolved." Wtbtv As a result of this decision, eight national fraternities and six national sororities have been invited to send their representatives to the campus in the near future, and discuss with Wildcat fraternities the implications of going national. On May 20, from 12 to 2 p.m. in the U.B. theater, a panel discussion will be presented by the national fraternities. All interested students are invited to attend. Each speaker will take from 5-10 minutes introducing himself and his fraternity to the audience. Afterwards, a question and answer period will be conducted in which campus fraternities will attempt to determine the problems they would encounter, as well as the advantages and privileges involved in going national. The sororities will conduct a similar meeting on May 27. r J it- Volume 28 No. 29 WEBER STATE SIGNPOST May 16, 1969 In ei7 commotee heads ' 1a Bruce Nilson, executive vice president of the Associated Students, examines one of the trophies to be presented tonight at the annual Awards and Honors Night.

Randee was announced as the winner last Saturday at the annual Junior Prom, themed "Tangerine." Students voted during the day Friday. Attendants are Connie Roberts, first, and Gloria Salerno, second. Randee received roses and a trophy at the time of her announcement. At the climax of one of the most enjoyable events of the year, Randee Anderson was announced queen of this year's Junior Prom. Steve Frazier, last year's king of the Junior Prom, made the announcement. He also explained that the reason a king wasn't chosen was that if Bill Washburn couldn't be the king, nobody could. The only major problem of the evening was the air conditioner, which wasn't functioning. "If you want to leave, that's fine. It'll just make it cooler for the" rest of us," Washburn explained. Music was provided by the Lonely Bulls, a group from Weber State. Everyone who attended a-greed that the music was a major factor in making the evening as enjoyable as it was.

|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.|
