Enlarges Several Appropriations An increase in the student body fee is responsible for a larger appropriation to each of several Weber college activities. This increase has made it possible to prepare a bigger and more complete budget to carry on the year's activities.Several changes have been effected in the 3tudent body budget. The athletic insurance fund was formerly handled by the state, but because of legal difficulties it has been turned over to the school. An increase in funds has been placed at the disposal of the drama and mu3ic departments. 'Robert Polidor, student body president, states, "The small balance between expenditures and income will be made up through miscellaneous receipts." A complete statement of the budget will be found on page 3, column 4. THE EITEKAHY DRY JEST THIS WEEK'S DEFINITIONS: Poppa a wire container used for popping corn. (ioblet a son of a sailor.

It maketh me sit up nights; it teacheth me the necessity of swearing. It destroyeth my sweet disposition; it causeth me to burn my finger for my diploma's sake; yea, though I labor and frown, my apparatus soars to the ceiling, for fate is against me. Chemistry displayeth my ignorance in the presence of my (Continued on page 2) Newness! That's the theme at Weber College this year ... a new administration, headed by a new president pledged to a singularly new "democratic" theory of school government . . . new buildings, plans for one of which, a $146,000 mechanic arts building, are now nearing completion and are to be submitted to the state board of education for approval within the near future . . . completely renovated and remodeled rooms in the present buildings . . . new student body government headed by four ambitious sophomores' who, in keeping with the ever new and enlarging social and cultural scope of the college, already have inaugurated new plans for a student life designed to instill in all the progressiveness characterizing the school and to make each student an integral part of that progression ... a new student body comprised in the main of one of the largest freshman enrollments in the history of the college under state jurisdiction . . . new faculty members, five of them, further enhancing the reputation of the school already known to have more instructors with Ph. D.'s than any education plant of like size in the intermountain west . . . and plans for the hiring of at least ten more upon completion of the new vocational training building . . . new and more extensive programs of extracurricular activity in almost every department . . . and, far from the last of these, a new SIGNPOST! For two years SIGNPOST has served its purpose and objective as a typewritten bulletin, first presented twice weekly on an improvised board set on a tripod in the main hall of the Moench building, and later in the glass-doored enclosure still to be seen there. But SIGNPOST also felt the need for expansion, the probability that student could better be served through new facilities. The purpose of SIGNPOST: a medium for student expression, for presentation of student news as it appeals to students, and as a medium by which those interested in news writing can follow their bent, will be adherred to (Continued on page 2) Players, Students To Make Trip To California Beat Compton! This cry resounds from every corner of the campus as Weber's Wildcat eleven prepares to battle the Compton junior college grid-ders at Compton, Calif., Saturday, Oct. 23, in the only intersectional game on the Weber schedule this year. Eager to gain vengeance for last year's defeat at the hands of the heavier Compton team, the Wildcats, 23 of them, will enter the game as the underdogs. Playing on their own field at an altitude and climate natural to them, the Compton team will enter the game as distinct favorites. No one will be very much surprised, however, if the Wildcats, combining traditional Weber skill and the old do-or-die spirit, come out on top. Both Captain Clark, end, and Coach Davis of Weber were primed for a great battle, as the Wildcats left for Compton. "Win or lose, we'll be in there fighting," Clark said. (Continued on page 4) SOPH OUTING THURSDAY "Freshmen to Receive Bath" Let's go to the outing! Hey, Freshie, better bring a towel! Thursday afternoon all students are expected to be at the Ogden Stake Camp for the annual Sophomore Outing and River Dip. Max Carruth, chairman of the event, says the girls are especially invited. Ruth White, a spokesman for the Sophomore girls, challenged the Freshman girls to a Softball and a volleyball game. Candy and soda water will be sold, and lunches are in order if you wish to bring them. Of course, the main event of the day will be the ducking of the Freshmen in the river by the Sophomores. Committeemen Ruth White, Ruth Greenwell, Paul Jenkins and Bob Askew claim it's really going to be "Barrels of fun!" Let's go! Following the outing, in the college ballroom, the Sophomores will celebrate their victory by sponsoring a student body 3ports dance. The College orchestra will be there to furnish the rhythm. Prices will be fifty cents, couple or stag. "Stags are welcome; wn need the money," says Packer, dance committee head.

|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.|
