The diploma offers the degree of PHT or "putting husband thru" and will be going to several deserving wives whose efforts have facilitated getting the man of the house through college. Student irigh&s booklet okayed aer eHuoBnges Changes and alterations not withstanding, the Senate approved the statement concerning student rights. Alterations have been made by the academic council, the administration, the Board of Trustees, the Attorney General, and the Senate, totaling several pages. This edition, after undergoing further changes from the Senate, will go to the Board of Trustees for final acceptance and will be printed and distributed at registration time, next fall. "We're pretty much there now," said John Elzey, referring to the changes made. Itemizings the important changes, Elzey primarily noted the changes made by the attorney general. Charters will have to be renewed each year, and this provides enforcement, also. Students must schedule all off-campus speakers through the convocations and lectures committee. Elzey added the opinion that this did not apply to classroom lectures. Committee size will influence the possibility of its being accepted. A large enough group to be successful will be mandatory for that group to be accepted. Keith Orton. senator-at-large elect, objected to this point because he felt it could allow pred-judice against minority groups. A non drinking policy will be enforced on campus, including sport events, for all who attend. This would include the Century Club and alumni, and "We would hope they would enforce this,'' said Dean Peterson, assistant dean of students. Commenting about the administration of policy and the decision making personnel, Bill Washburn questioned, "Aren't those dictatorial powers? I think they are!" Howard Collett, legislative vice president, suggested that definition is impossible and you "gotta leave it open." "It is a descriptive statement, not prescriptive," said Dave Yurth. Other action ratified bill 8-69, sponsored by Wayne Hill which prohibits class presidents and senators from holding more than one office. r hi ' i ii ii m n , i , i Fjd3ujfi,ion is JJyne 7 ov seniors Almost one thousand eligible seniors will receive diplomas as part of commencement exercises, June 7.

|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.|
