While two can do it ( upper left) , it appears that the new dance is meant for one, preferably carrying a briefcase or a stack of books. Fountain The money for the fountain, which cost $90,000 will come from a donation from Ada Linquist fund. The fountain will be named the Ada Linquist Memorial Fountain. There are also plans for a $1.1 million expansion of the gymnasium to meet title nine requirements. Title nine is part of a bill that requires state supported colleges and universities to provide equal opportunity for men and women. "New buildings There are also plans for three new buildings. These are an( Allied Health Sciences Building, a security building and a Business building. In 1979, there are plans for the construction of an extension that would connect the Fine Arts and Art Buildings. Although these plans have been approved by the Institutional Council, they must be approved by both the Board of Regents and the Legislature before they can be carried out. Dr. Dale Cowgill, dean of the school of Technology, gave a presentation at the start of the meeting on the status of Tech-ed. No special favors He said that President Bishop's administration has had a positive attitude toward the Tech school but that they have been given "no special favors." Cowgill said that the faculty of Tech Ed are not happy with the present system of rewards for faculty. He said that the rewards system is "geared toward the liberal arts faculty" and that "tenure and promotion don't come easy" for teachers in tech-ed. He also said that the salary rates are still too low. He said, "We face a terrible competitive situation ... faculty members often have to take a 40 percent salary cut to come here."

|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.|
