f ws den hu sng problems pi (9i) f Since the demise of Weber's married student housing, WSC's married students have been forced to rely solely on the surrounding community for their housing needs, and some married students have found that need difficult to meet. Married students often face the dilemma of having no regular income or only a part-time income and not having monetary support of parents. One student said that apartment managers often would not accept her and her husband as tenants since neither had a steady job, even though they were receiving money from the G.I. bill. Ability to pay The Signpost called several apartment managers all but one of whom required some proof of ability to pay the rent bill ranging from Many managers require some proof of present and future income. credit references to proof of income and bank statements. The Brownstone, on Harrison Blvd., requires no such proof. Manager Eugene Girardo said that "we've never inquired." He said he assumes that when people move in they can pay the rent.

Many married students have found the campus more hospitable to young families than local realtors. bedroom apartments for under $165 a month which many married students with children find to be too expensive. Most of the complexes also either limit the number or age of children or do not allow children at all, which forces students with children to seek homes in other areas. Old houses Many students, married, single, or with children, live in old houses that have been divided into apartments or else in basements and attics of family homes. An employee of the Rental Gallery, a firm that matches tenants and apartments said that she thought it would be very difficult to find an apartment above Washington Blvd. with two bedrooms for under $160. She said that below Washington, the cheapest would probably be $90. Some students however, with the help of time and legwork have found two bedroom apartments in the vicinity of the college for as little as $120. Close to downtown The experiences of many students suggests that the closer a student is willing to live to Washington Blvd., the more numerous these One realtor doubts that there is a two bedroom apartment above Washington for under $160 arrangements are. One problem single students who are striking out on their own for the first time have found is that they have no way to prove their credit ratings. Since they have yet to have any bills in their name, they often need to either prove their parents income or search for a place that doesn't require that type of proof. Most of the apartment complexes in Ogden were more willing to rent to married students with no children. One manager said that these students are more likely to have some sort of credit r ating, and are more settled down than singles.

|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.|
