Dixon Return Discloses Research Plans "Chosen with eight other junior colleges in the United States Weber college will receive $6000 for research work," said Dr. Henry A. Dixon, Weber college president. An appropriation of $100,000 from the general board of education will be used for this project on terminal education. Dr. Dixon has just returned from a meeting of consultants and staff members of the research project at Denver, Colorado, and reported that each of the institutions will receive six thousand and the rest will be used to maintain three workshops, and for books reporting the results of the research. "Instead of using this money to hire someone to do this research work for us. or using it in my work at the George Peabody university, I have a plan whereby this money can be used to grant scholarships to 10 Weber college teachers each summer. This would allow them to study in the best workshop and under the best authorities available in the country," stated Dr. Dixon. "Then in two or three years time we would have a faculty unequaled in the country." "I know that this plan will be okayed, because I talked to two of the directors, Rosco C. Ingalls, and Leland L. Medsker, while I was at Denver, and I am sure I can get the consent of D. S. Campbell because it is he I am to work with this summer," continued Dr. Dixon. The three workshops are located, one at Nashville, Tenn., one at Berkeley, Calif., and one at Los Angeles, California. Dr. Dixon has been chosen as a consultant in the Peabody workshop for the study of selection and organization of terminal courses especially suited to needs of the Ogden area. He will be a member of the Peabody faculty from July 5 to August 7, 1941. Dr. Robert A. Clarke, director of vocational guidance from Weber college will study at the Los Angeles workshop. Applications Solicited . . . Student Body President Elect Jack Larson today requested all students desiring committee positions for next year to file applications with next years officers immediately in the student body office. President Stresses Need . . . Organized intelligence is possibly the greatest earthly power. When it is directed into wholesome channels it becomes a great positive social force. The organization of the associated alumni of Weber has provided a great deal of stability that has been lacking before. Two years is a very short time for students to be with us, but if after graduation they receive the school paper, attend the homecoming games, the Founders' day exercises, the annual alumni dinner, and the commencement exercises, the traditions of the school will become more firmly rooted in their lives. The Alumni association is moving full speed ahead. The faculty and students hail these new activities with enthusiasm and pledge their support to them in any way possible. President H. A. Dixon. Yearbook Day Designated Next Tuesday May 27 is Acorn day, according to Budd Johnson, editor. The theme of the book is carried out 100 per cent in photopgraphy. The yearbooks this year will be issued in the same manner that they were last year. On Monday, May 26, all persons who have paid for their books in full may go to the bookstore and receive a card entitling them to a yearbook. On the following day, Tuesday, March 27, the books will be issued in exchange for these cards. Tomorrow the price of the yearbook will automatically be raised from $2.50 to $3.00, payment to be made in the bookstore. Following the precedent of previous years, Miss Eva Browning, Weber college librarian, announced that no yearbooks vould be allowed in the library, so that cramming for exams could go on unhampered by autographing. However, she announced that Wednesday, May 28, at three o'clock, after all exams are over, the ilibrary will be opened up to everyone for the sole purpose of signing yearbooks, and will remain open until ten o'clock that night. At the same time, Mr. Pat Riley, bookstore manager, announced that the bookstore and fountain will remain open until seven-thirty o'clock that night, and that tables will be provided for writing purposes. Faculty Member Leaves W. C. t At Year's End This is Mr, David Trevithick's last week at Weber college. He announced today that he is leaving at the end of this school year. Mr. Trevithick has been a member of the English department for eight years. One of those years was on leave of absence in Europe. His special work has been mainly advising the yearbook and literary magazine. This year the literary magazine, Scribulus, received an all-Ameriean rating. It was entered with the bureau for the first time but has been in existence in the same format and type of content for the four years of its existence under Mr. Trevithick. Acorn, the yearbook, rated first class last year. During Coach L. H. Monson's leave three years ago, Mr. Trevithick substituted as debate coach. His teams won the Utah-Idaho league in men's debate and took second in women's debate. Mr. Trevithick's plans have not been announced. He has long been a hard-working supporter of Governor Herbert Maw, however, and recently saw his faith justified in the governor's election and notable beginning in office. He was, in fact, manager of the campaign in Ogden. And so it is generally felt on the campus that it is his duty to take a responsible part in the government he helped elect. W. C. Alumni Association Slate Reunions Tuesday The annual meeting of the Associated Alumni of Weber college wil be held Tuesday, May 27, at eight o'clock in the Weber college auditorium. Mr. David O.

Rally Planned for '31, '32 Graduates Meetings are being held regularly these days by members of the class of '31 and '32, for their big rally planned for Tuesday, May 27. Even though the committee has asked that the reunion be for the class of '31, members of the class of '32 feel it would be a fine time for them to start their work for their official reunion next year. The meetings this year will be of a cooperative nature. Mr. Kent S. Bramwell has been appointed as "rally chief" for the class of '31, and Mr. Delmar "Dick" Weese is in charge of the class of '32. The student body officers Mr. "Duke" Wright and Miss Maurice Berrett of each class are assisting with the plans. The present arrangements include a dinner, commencing at six p. m. as a preliminary"get-to-geth-er," then the "gang" will adjourn to the yearly alumni meeting at the college, and from there go to a class dance for alumni members of the class of '31 and '32. Cleola Zinn Weese, (Class of '.t2 is chairman of refreshments and is assisted by Lucille Van Dyke Chandler, Ridges Keller, and Mildred Rynders Hearn. A program is being arranged to bring back memories of the event of '31 and '32, such as the beard growing contest, memoirs of the College Bum, girls chorus, etc. Alumni members of the class of '31 and '32, whether they graduated or not, are cordially invited to attend. The dinner and dance will cost $1.00 for both. Officials claim that much will be missed if the members of the Class of '31 and '32 should miss their "rally," Tuesday, May 27. Additional information will be sent to each class member giving further details of this reunion.

|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.|
