Eileen has had that experience and is more capable of handling this particular job than I am. "I believe that more students involved in student organizations the better.

I feel that I could be of some help in both these areas by virtue of my positions and personality. Weber women vie for AWS offices Paula Butterfield says, "The AWS President should play an important role in the life of every WSC coed's life. Through her, each is represented on the Student Senate and all other campus activities." Betty Robinson says, "While activities such as dances and fashion shows are important to the female student, there is another aspect to her life.

I am happiest when I am involved. For this purpose I hope to become AWS vice-president." AWS Secretary Running for the office of Secretary of the Associated Women Students are Judy Hagen and Laurie West. Judy states; "I feel there is need to improve the rapport between the women on campus. My goal would be to involve unaffiliated coeds and those from the dorms in new activities.

Judy has served on the Freshman Council, Special Events Committee, as secretary of the Music and Talent Committee and also as secretary of the LDSSA Campus committee. Laurie West who lists her qualifications as Care, says; "the responsibility of this office lies in the ability to represent the women of Weber State College - not the "typical campus coed, but five thousand individuals from five thousand different walks of life.

|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.|
