Tuition Hikes Being Argued A tuition raise is currently being debated by the Utah State Legislature which could affect Weber students. Several ideas have been launched which would increase Weber student tuition fees. One proposal would increase tuition $70 per year for all students; another would levy an additional $60 per year to out of state students only. One of the bigger problems facing both the college and the administration this year is the budget appropriation, which has not yet been set. If not enough funds are appropriated this year, a tuition hike might still be in the agenda for the 1969-70 school year. Traditionally, Weber has held to the minimum tuition allowed by state law. This presently amounts to $70 per quarter for full time students who are residents. The remaining portion of fees are applied to student activities, such as athletics, unions building, etc. The Orchesis Dance Concert will be presented Feb. 27 and March 1st at 8 p.m. and Feb. 28 at 4 p.m. in the Little Theatre.

Wildcat The gag was tightened around my mouth. The ropes burned into my wrists. I was tied to a chair, shoved in a laundry bag, and locked in a trunk. Kenny Knight is cruel! No food or water for three days. But with the daring virtues of past reporters, I escaped! I rushed my story to the printers . . and they handed me a copy of the finished paper. I was too late. Last week I couldn't tell you what Wildcat Week was really about! But now, I know it all! But now, I'm gonna tell! Ha! I'm now part of the committee planning Wildcat Week. I get to wear the pointed paper hat with the painted ears. Ahh - - what satisfaction! One of the more prominent members is 6'7" - - not quite tall enough to be a full fledged tree. Another immediately placed two quarters on the table and balanced them throughout the meeting. Well, what is Wildcat Week? The gladiators are going to wrestle scenery and props were also created by the students." The dances include a traditional dance of Thialand, depicting the actions of the monkey. It will be preformed by guest artist Ruang-chai Sangsuriya.

This request was denied by the Georgia board. However, the board post Week Sneaking Up , By Darline Rogers. live wildcats - - and well, that's all I can tell you this week.

|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.|
