There is a 10 cent handling charge for each book and to assure that no problems can arise with their selling, a contract must accompany each volume. This book exchange will be held each quarter in the union building during the first week of every term. Books should be eas-ier to obtain, and less costly as the year progresses. Eighty, five percent of the books received this quarter have already been sold. "This is a service to the students," remarked chapter leaders as they finished explaining the goals of their project. Byron L. Wade Britian's Lord Harlech will appear tonight at 8 p.m. in the Web. er State Fine Arts center audi-tor iu m. His lecture "Must the West Decline," is an assessment of the condition of Western civiliza. tion in the 20th Century. It also bears the same title as his cele. brated book on international relations which was published in 1966. Students may attend the lecture by showing their student identification cards. Lord Harlech, the former Sir David Ormsby-Gore, was the chief foreign confidant of the late President John F. Kennedy. Ormsby-Gore and Kennedy first met in 1936 when John Kennedy was merely the son of Ambas. sador Joe Kennedy and David Ormsby-Gore was the son of a British Parliamentarian. Both young men were to be. come their nation's political shining star. While Kennedy was rapidly working his way to the White House, Ormsby-Gore was State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 Frederick Dixon and Gladys Galdstone. He has graduated from the Julliard School of Music in New York City. He is a lecturer of applied music at Weber State College.

The $1,155,000 structure will house the people presently occupying building I. When completed in June, 1970, the new building will also Include an In-stitutional council meeting room. One third of the project cost, which include an $80,000 appropriation for furnishings, are fed-eral funds. The state hasprovid-ed the remaining two thirds. Students should especially take note that the most often visited office, the registrar's, will be found in the new building next year. Since the appropriations do not include enough money to equip the elevator shaft with an elevator, the building may spon. sor an innovation at Weber State; administration drop-outs. "These kind of buildings require a great deal of substruc-turing," says Mr. Johnson, "but the students will be surprised at the rapid changes that will take place about next Dec ember." The new building will be air conditioned, like the new Union Building, and promises to be a beautiful addition to the campus. just as rapidly working his way up Britian's political ladder. It was Ormsby-Gore who, while heading up the British team "negotiating a nuclear test ban with the Russians, won a name for patience and good judgment and for doing his homework." It was also Ormsby-Gore who proposed the "Grand Design" for Europe by formulating a plan to unify European organizations. When John Kennedy took office as President in 1961, he request-ed that Sir David Ormsby-Gore be appointed British Ambassador to the United States. His request was honored and Ormsby-Gore (now Lord Harlech) became the "most favored guest at the White House." Upon Lord Harlech's appointment as Ambassador, interna, tional journalists lauded his appointment vigorously. "Eng. land's ideal man for the U.S., his talents match his credentials," read Life Magazine. U.S. News and World Report com 7f TTiirtM SflMlfrWjjriV' WILL THE letters WS painted on the hillside above the Weber State campus disappear? If students do not show any enthusiasm to maintain the upkeep on the letters they may be effaced. The present state of the letters is enough to warrant their dissappearance. VJeber to lose VJS? Unless students give signi-ficant support, the large letters, WS, on the hill may be effaced. "The way it is right now Is an indication of the attitude on campus," Bill Washburn, leg. islative vice president said when the question came up in executive council. "It is a problem we have inherited, we could ignore it like every one else has done, bungle it, and do a half hearted job." Washburn listed three alternatives. First, leave it the way it pared him to the American Pres. ident, "His rapid rise in Brit-ish politics has somewhat paral. leled the rise of Mr. Kennedy as an American political figure." During the Cuban missile crisis Lord Harlech played a signifi-cant role in helping the young American President to outwit Khrushchev. It was Lord Harlech that prompted Kennedy to release the aerial photographs taken of Soviet missile sites in Cuba "to counteract skepticism abroad." It was also he who convinced Kennedy to switch his signals and "Order the Navy to delay intercepting the Soviet ships, with their missile cargoes, until they reached Cuban waters. This second decision might well have been the difference between peace and war, because each additional hour made it easier for Khrushchev to back down." After the crisis, when Kennedy 'received praise for his actions, he said, "let us not forget the foreigner," referring to Lord Harlech. October 7, 1969 has been done each year; second, get rid of it; and third, give it to a service group. It may also be replanted, as suggested by Dr. O. Whitney Young, to retard erosion and somewhat compensate natural beauty. A referendum vote of the stu-dentbody may also justify the hir. ing of a private contractor to do the job each year. "Hiring a contractor is like hiring a professional team to play our basketball games," added Washburn.

|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.|
