Mr. Buss is also planning ra rlav to check some details in field work which he did in Cali fornia Gov't SubsistenceTTus Apprentice Salary Inducive Feature Of On The , On the Job training in vocational courses is now being taken by some 45 students here on the campus under the provisions of thr GI bill of rights. Some 172 concerns in the Og-dcn area have been approved for this special type of training. This means that these various businesses have complete facilities and competent employes, with which to train the students while on the job. Such establishments as the Johnson Electric. Intermountain publishers, and Mitchel motors are among those being used in this capacity. ' The pay plan for such training is quite attractive to the returned vet as if offers him subsistence under the GI provisions and the apprenticeship wage that he makes on the job. The fellows , yi'iigagetl in this program have registered their approval of it. pointing: to this phase as its most attractive inducement. In this type of training the worker is also student, not only because he goes to school bo-Vsidos, but because he gets grades for the progress that he makes on the job. The local concerns employing the fellows have reported that they are well' satisfied with this setup because of the greater incentive on the pari Jof their apprentices who must not only earn their dollar but must keep up a good rate of advancing knowledge in the trade or business. Lounge, Inn Slated For Improvements Central Auditorium To Be Remodeled For Fun Purposes Temporary plans for improving the college inn and men's lounge conditions, by changing the Central building auditorium into a combination college inn and men's lounge, are now under consideration, according to Pres. Henry Aldous Dixon. The proposed plan will include leveling the auditorium floor, and ' furnishing with a lountain twice the size of the present one. extra tables and chairs, and ping-pong and pool tables to ac commodate the fellows as a tem porary lounge. Old Auditorium The old auditorium ,iVnrh 1-ins lain idle for several years, when rejuvenated will accommodate students from eight a. m. until 10 p. m. if present plans arc followed. The project will cost arouno $10,000 according to rough esti mates on building materials inu fixtures costs available at the present time. Pres. Dixon said that he would appreciate comment from the students of their opinion on what they would like the room to contain, and other details. U of U Students Too Noisy Savs Librarian j (ACP) University ol Utah students are making too much noise in the corridors and study rooms of the library, according to the librarian. Unless a present trend is curbed immediately, a system of six buzzers will be installed in the main reading room. If a buzzer sounds in a given section, the offending students will either "pipe down" or get out. They are wondering if this is a promise or a threat!

Directors of the meeting were Dr. Henry Aldous Dixon, president, and Dr. RobertA. Clarke, planning committee chairman. The session was the outcome of a questionnaire submitted earlier to the group. The first unit of construction will be a library administration building; next, a vocational building because of pressing public demands for such training. According to John Benson, night school director, a larger registration for trade training professions indicate the urgent need for this building. Dr. Clarke's group was im-powered to pass upon the feasibility of several suggestions for campus enlargement, which might turn to either distant or adjacent areas. Job Training Wavne Biinuv.

|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.|
