Opportunities for more students to win valuable Army ROTC scholarships opened up on Nov. 24 when President Nixon signed into law two bills -- one to increase scholarships; the other to double the montly subsistence allowance. The scholarship law -- Public Law 92-166 -- in- creases the ceiling on Army ROTC scholarships from 5,500 to 6,500. There are now 5,500 students attending college on Army ROTC scholarships. The subsistence law - Public Law 92-171 - doubles ROTC subsistence allowance from $50 to $100 per month for 10 months of each academic year. All ROTC advanced course and scholarship students currently receiving a subsistence allowance will have their allowance increased to $100 retroac- five to Nov. 14, the day the government lifted its temporary freeze on wages and prices. . The new law also permits for the first time up to 20 percent of the scholarships to be granted to students in the two-year ROTC program. These are junior college graduates and students of four-year colleges who have not taken Army ROTC during their first two years. Each scholarship pays for tuition, textbooks and lab fees for each academic year during the length of the scholaship. ROTC cadets receive one-half the basic pay of a Second Lieutenant when they attend a six week advanced camp in the summer between their junior and senior years. - Another 600 new scholarships will be offered in school year 1972-73. Nearly 1,100 of these will be four- : year: scholarships to high school seniors entering col lege for the first time. Colonel Knauer, the professor of military science indicated that those Tstudents now enrolled in the advanced course at lWeber State will receive their first check for $100 shortly after the new year. Those enrolled in the program will receive approximately $2000 while .attending college. Full details of all programs offered by the ROTC department are available by calling X271 or by stopping by the ROTC office, room 217, Promontory Tower.

|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.|
