Masur said since his candidacy had been announced he had received some input from students that had given him a different perspective on . some areas of his job. In an earlier interview, Masur had responded to a question about the power that the assembly should have by saying that he didn't think the assembly needed more power than it had and "since the Executive Council is voted on by the students as a whole, we should be answerable to the council."

He said "that's an awful lot of power to be held by them." He noted the Academic Assemblymen "have very little power. I think we ought to spread the power base a little further to have more people involved in the decision making," he added. On organizing his assembly, Masur said, he would like to find some way to publish the fact that the opportunity is open to students and "if anyone wants to do it, they're on."

Each Academic Assemblymen is responsible for organizing an area assembly with representatives from each of the majors in his school. The majors that Masur will represent are Communications, English, Foreign languages, Theatre, Art, Music and Math. He represents these fields on the Academic Assembly which has no power to make changes but can recommend changes to the student Executive Council and the Faculty Senate. Masur said that he supports the resolution recently passed by the Assembly to limit activities and tests during the week before finals. He said, "I agree activities should be stopped.

A central purpose of the tour, President Bishop said, is to explore the possibilities of establishing cultural and academic linkages with educational and other institutions of Red China.

|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.|
