Director of Auxiliary Services Robert Ladd said, "We don't allow passing out literature because of the maintenance' problem concerning litter." Ladd noted that 90 percent of the fliers passed around on campus end up in the duck pond. He said they want to keep the campus in the best condition and in the best atmosphere they possibly can. He then added there was no written policy on campus that says people can or can not pass out fliers or picket. But, he said, it was an impossible task to keep the campus free from handbills, and junk that people put on windshields. Assistant Attorney General, Eric Bjorklund, said the college could not stop anyone constitutionally from picketing or passing out hand bills. "As long as the people are peaceful and do not disturb the college, they have that right," he added.

|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.|
