Foulger, Business Vice President referring to the Suggested Bookstore Policy Implementation presented by the Ombudsman Committee. Further, Dr. Foulger stated that administration agrees with students and Ombudsman that the bookstore should be a student service first and a business concern second, however, he also stated that the bookstore cannot operate properly on less than a 20 percent mark-up. Brad Post, Ombudsman chairman said that profit percentage on an $8.00 book with a 20 percent mark-up that is bought back and resold for three quarters is 87.5 percent with the boookstore having the book for resale again. In a four page response to the Ombudsman Committee, Dr. Foulger clarified certain present policies that the bookstore now follows' and detailed other policies that cannot be enacted and gave reasons why such practices would be illegal or impractical by the Bookstore. "To channel 10 percent of listed bookstore profit to ASWSC government would be illegal as determined by the bond resolution which made possible the construction of the union Building. The students should be aware of this fact that all monies from bookstore profits are used for these bond payments and for no other College purpose." Dr. Foulger said that the administration felt that faculty should take greater care in choosing books and the number of books for each class. Far East (gutiiorfty n campus fJlondlGy U-v A V!

|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.|
