rcber state Volume 30, Number 52 Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 Tuesday, May 18, 1971 U V J Weber students, faculty member receive honors Dr. Hofmann gives policies Numerous complaints from students, faculty and administration have occurred in the last few days in regard to dead week and final examination week. It is for this reason that I find it necessary to clarify once more the policies which regulate final examination and dead week. Dead Week Dead week means exactly what the word says. During this time activities in classes, tests, etc. are to be eliminated in order to give the student time to prepare for the final examination. Henceforth, instructors who schedule examinations during dead week will have to receive special permission from this office. Only unusual circumstances of an emergency nature will be considered. Final Exams Final examinations are to be given at the times which have been set aside in the regular college calendar for this purpose. All Department Chairmen and Deans are responsible for adherence to this policy. Students cannot be excused from final examinations, unless an emergency situation justifies a change of examination date. Deans are to approve of such cases. Grad. 'Best Dress1 is . . . In May 7, 1971 Signpost, page 3 a story was printed titled "Student-body Executive Cabinett explains new cap and gown policy." Studentbody officers asked that item four (4) be printed in its en-tirity.4) "best Dress": The student's original propositions stipulated that those choosing not to wear the cap and gown would consent to appear in "best dress." That statement continues: We feel a need to clarify "best dress" in the interest of all concerned. Best dress at all school functions is suit and tie for men and heels and hose for women. It is to be understood by graduates that although the traditional attire will not be worn by all, all will be properly attired. We student officers have committed ourselves to appropriate dress and we ask you, our constituents, to support us. We have been given an opportunity to depart from tradition so that we might express a concern. We think that the ceremony can retain its meaning without the uniform traditional dress. This thinking was seriously challenged and opposed by several members of various councils and committees before approval was granted. We therefore request your support in proper conduct and dress to show that 1460 caps and gowns aren't necessarily needed for commencement to be meaningful.

|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.|
