"Standing room only . . ." and "most stimulating . . ." are the comments of those who have attended the lectures of Pearl S. Buck, one of America's most distinguished writers. She will present the lecture, An Evening With Pearl S. Buck on October 16, at 8:00 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Auditorium. In 1938 she received the Nobel Prize for Literature, the first American woman ever to be so honored.

|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.|
