Karl Robinson Karl Robinson, noted lecturer, photogrpher, and world traveler, was featured as the next-to-last speaker on the Webercollege-sponsored Lyceum schedule, Wednesday, April 28. Mr. Robinson's talk, entitled "China Journey," was highlighted by color films of that nation's cities and people. The two-reel film dealt with six provinces of post-war China, which Mr. Robinson visited for six months during 1946. He was previously a veteran of ten year's residence in the nation. Mr. Robinson's lecture included discussions of the ancient and modern cities of China, the famous Yellow river, agrarian and village life, and other aspects of the nation that is one of the trouble spots of the world today. Program magazine commented on Mr. Robinson's lecture, "China is a huge country. It is a jig-saw puzzle of a myriad pieces. No one could show it all in one lecture. Yet Karl Robinson has taken a bit here, expanded a theme there so that you get an amazing over-all feeling of this land where the Good Earth is god, where everything is measured in terms, not of horsepower, but man-power." The last feature of this year's Lyceum series, Roy Harris, is scheduled Monday, May 3. .

|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.|
