3E cui -- -- f m, - .' Convocation series influenced by WSC Recently a survey conducted by Daniel L. Martino's office was made public. The survey was to determine student thoughts and ideas concerning the Fine Arts Convocation Series and to give the students better input into the selection of guests. Gathering of data was made from two sources. First, a mailout effort was made to gather input from the faculty and staff here at Weber State College. A spokesperson for Martino's office stated that every member of the WSC faculty and staff received a copy of the survey form and that the response from this area was very good. The gathering of data from students was handled differently. The survey forms were placed at different points around campus to give the students opportunity to participate. Notices were placed in the Signpost to inform the students of the survey and where to pick up forms. Student response The spokesperson said that in the final analysis about two-thirds of the response was from students with the faculty and staff response making up the other one-third. The survey found a unanimous support for the continuance of the convocation "series. Of those responding all 99 favored keeping the series in tact. The respondants also favored the weekly format used by the series. Forty-five favored this program compared to 38 who favored the bi-monthly format, 37 favoring a monthly offering and two favored a bi-weekly presentation.The preference for speakers over performing and creative artists, forums debates, panel discussions, etc. was also indicated by the respondees.

|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.|
