Chamonix and the 1,000 foot deep snow is just one of the "out of' this world" ski places you will visit in Warren Miller's annual film. Chamonix and a dozen or so of the world's top ski stations and fantastic skiers are featured. Sun Valley, Idaho; Vail and Crested Butte, Colo.; and Mammoth and Bear Valley, Calif, are just part of the evening's entertainment. Commenting on what it's like to ski on snow a thousand feet deep, Mr. Miller said, "The day after we finished filming in Chamonix, an Austrian camera crew was killed when the ice block they were standing on toppled over and crushed them. While it is easy to make turns on the glacier, it's very dangerous. Skiing down the glacier is like running a slalom course where the poles are crevassed. If you make a mistake, it could be fatal." In a scene from the new motion picture, "Winter People," a quartet of expert skiers carve first tracks in new powder snow at Sun Valley, Idaho.

Students who have had pictures taken for their activity cards have been confronted with a fifty cent increase in the cost of the activity card and a sign informing them, "Last Spring your Student Senate raised the activity card fee to $1.50." The question of raising the card fee had not come before the Senate during budget hearings and most Senators were surprised to learn of the increase. The Executive Cabinet of the Associated Students had discussed a possible increase but had not made the increase part of their budgetrecommendation. Curtis Smout, Coordinator of Student Government, said, "It was simply a misunderstanding on my part. I thought the Senate had acted on the increase. The increase is necessary because of a deficit in the activity card fund last year." The Senate discussed alternatives to the yearly studentbody card and authorized Curtis Smout to look into them. A motion was made to belatedly raise the fee for activity cards from $1.00 to $1.50. The vote was a 6 to 6 tie which was broken in favor of the increase by Senate Speaker Don Hughes. Hughes said he voted for the increase because, "there is no earthly place to get the extra $1,200 the student government would have to subsidize. If it could be found somewhere else. I would change my vote." The Senate also discussed complaints about the bookstore book buy-back policy and prices. The discussion will be continued in order toinvile Mr. DeeSchenk. book store manager, in to the Senate and to obtain current figures on the operation of the Booksto re. The next Senate Meeting will be Tuesday at 7:15. The meeting is open to all students.

|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.|
