In my own way I try to bring the students back to that time and they all seem to love it." There is a special feature in Weiner's performance. Weeks before his appearance, he mails a sealed package to the Dean, or someone entrusted by the Dean, to be zealously guarded until show time.. . .. . ...... ........ - ......

The donor then fills out a complete history to ensure protection against unwanted antibodies or diseases in the blood. According to Bea Sherfy, Ogden's Director of the Drive, "That's a benefit of the volunteer system because volunteers will tell the truth. If a person is getting paid for it, all he wants is the money." She added that in the past individuals such as alcoholics have donated and passed on hepatitis. A hemoglobin count is taken before donating to make sure the person has enough iron in the blood. Red Cross workers then take a pint of blood and send it to the Intermountain Regional Center in Salt Lake City to be run through 11 blood typing tests.

|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.|
