They set up scenery and props for massive 14 ring circus just south of the Union Building. Residence halls revamping; access policies face change by Mary Woodhead The on-campus residence halls are beginning to give more freedom to their occupants. Lack of freedom in previous years was one of the major reasons students gave for moving to off campus apartments. This is more true of the women's dormitory, Wasatch Hall, than any of the other housing facilities on campus. While the other three halls have only two vacancies among them Wasatch Hall has 54 vacancies. The doors at Promentory Hall remain open 24 hours, those at Wasatch Hall are locked at 11 p.m. on week nights and 1 a.m. on weekends. This year for the first time, women who live at Wasatch will be issued front door keys so that they may stay out as long as they want to. The only restriction is that women under 18 are required to have a release signed "VI by their parents. The women students are also no longer required to sign in or out when they leave the hall. Both Promentory and Wasatch halls are now considering an open house policy. This would allow members of the opposite sex to visit occupants in their rooms 24 hours a day. Promentory would like to try the policy on a trial basis of just weekends first, while Wasatch is voting on whether they would prefer open house full time or only on weekends. Before this can go into effect, it will have to be approved by the administration.Both Carl Wood, director of housing, and Joseph Bishop, president of the college, said that they would not approve the change. Director Wood felt that the open house policy would impair the safety of the women. He said that some schools with this policy had problems with rape, robbery and other crimes. He also felt that this policy would cut down on privacy and quiet in the halls. President Bishop agreed that this policy would cut down on freedom for those students who want privacy. He also felt that it would not be in line with the moral ethics of the school. Contrary to rumors there has been no official proposal on the subject of Wasatch Hall going coed. When asked how he felt about the possibility. Director Wood replied, "I think we could handle a coed situation." He added that this would apply only if the women students were in one wing and the male students in the other. President Bishop said that he would consider the possibility contingent on the exact definition of coed involved, and itsapplication.

|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.|
