The grant, announced in a special press conference by Dr. Caseal Burke, Chairman, will be used mainly to release the regular staff from lecuturing to complete the program. The Individualized Performance-Based Teacher Education program, IPT, is divided smaller units called Weber Individualized LearningKits (WILKITS) which the students will complete at their own speed. The advantage of the new pro-gram students will be learning teaching all four years in labs and in local schools. The system ultimately "guarantees" good teachers. The new program should help recruiting, special aid to diffi-cult areas for the individual student, and take advantage of advanced technology. From six to seven hundred students will be involved in the programs at any given time. "IPT is, "according to the department," an answer to the cry for relevance in higher education."The program was, according to Dr. Burke, a "synthesis" of the best of other programs taken from nation wide sources. "It is not programmed learning," as such, added Dr. Burke. The change affects the entire education department, all student enrolling in classes next fall will be involved in the new program. The program is unique in the nation, and should be practicable for other fields of instruction, such as selling, according to the department.

|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.|
