Under the regulations a veteran may make a change, without advisement and guidance, so long as his new course is in the same gen eral field as his original objective or a normally related progressive objective. If he wants to change to a dif ferent general field, however, the Instruction requires that he undergo advisement and guidance to determine his aptitude for and need of the course to complete his educational or job objective. A change of course. V-A explained, means a change of a veteran's educational or vocational objective. It does not mean changes made within a course. OGDEN, UTAH FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 1950 P. L. & R. Can't You Read? Weber students are not using the library as advantageously as they could, reports Filma Grose, reference librarian, who added that "We have a continual flow of new books and periodicals coming into the library that are sometimes not used at all." The library subscribes to 130 magazines of all descriptions which is well above the average suggested, which ise thirty-five for junior colleges. Many of these are current news magazines. It seems that students are doing only what they have to do, or what they are assigned to do as far as reading is concerned, using the library principally as a study room alone. Although this is one of the primary accomodations of the library and students are invited to continue using it as such, students and faculty are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity afforded them by the great wealth of literature the library has to offer. Miss Grose did express an op-tomistic outlook however, noting a gradual increase in the number of books being borrowed. 2.039 books were borrowed in December of 1948 as compared to 2,347 in the same month of 1949. But this still remains a small figure considering the 18,000 books available. Students are invited especially to borrow the new books, the jackets of which are displayed onthe bulletin board near the circulation dept., of the library. Miss Grose expresses sincere appreciation to the school administration for its annual allocation to the library for the money required to purchase these books. New Outline Series Commencing this week, a new series of College Outline handbooks can be purchased in the College Bookstore. These books, designed for assistance in any given subject will sell from $1 to $1.50 each according to Farrell Shepherd, CI manager. Mr. Shepherd also announced that students may return all used textbooks purchased at the store for re-sale on consignment at approximately two thirds of the original price. As a service to the students, special orders will also be made for any book or books desired. Orders placed through the store generally take less than two weeks to fill. Sporting goods and many other items may also be purchased by contacting Mr. Shepherd. Vocational Guidance Increases Interest In Ogden Region Dr. Stratford, head of the college vocational service, announces that interest in vocation guidance has increased an estimated 85 per cent in and around the Ogden area in the past year. "High schools and junior high schools, as well as elementary schools in the locality have requested help from our department," states Dr. Stratford. "We have purchased books and monographs to meet the problem. This equipment will aid tremendously in the selection of major fields of study." Diesel Students Aid In Shaping Stadium Grounds Sitting proudly between snow-flanked twin approaches, a new sign was recently erected at the new Weber college site. President Henry A. Dixon also announced the letting of a contract for grading the new Weber stadium site. Engineers have recently been plotting the contours for the operation, and an architect is drawing plans for the stadium. Experienced diesel students using college equipment will aid in the shaping of the stadium grounds. Great effort on the part of the president and faculty members plus the generous support of the community is finally resulting in the much needed expansion of Weber college. Comedy Finishes Successful Week The grease paint is wiped off once again after the closing of a successful six-day run of "The Male Animal," a three-act comedy by James Thurber, under the direc tion of John Kelly. The play was presented by the cellar theatre workship due to popular request from the patrons who saw the Ogden Community-Weber College theatre production two years ago. Presented by the cellar theatre, an organization composed entirely of college theatre workship stu dents. The play was presented in the Bertha Eccles Hall Thursday, January 5 to Wednesday, January 11, with the exception of Sunday. Cast members were Donna Olley, Anne Rasmussen, Don Soelberg, Clarence Socwell, Bruce Thompson, Harry Butler, Harold Jones, John Elzey, Robena Parker, Betty Jean Ross, Kent Fuller and Eldon Mc-Latchie.The story featured a college professor, whose married life was a humdrum affair until the plot thickens in the form of a returned ex-suitor of his wife's! an all time, all-American football star. The story had the usual Thurber comedy which brought out the ev erlasting conflict between dominat ing females and weak males. Veteran Student Enrollment Accarding to a recent release fom the Veterans Administration, veteran enrollment in colleges and universities in the United States has decreased about 17 per cent. This is about 174,000. Below college level enrollments mainly trade, and vocational schools increased about 23 per cent for this same period. In numbers approximately 163,000. Complete statistics are not yet available but these figures include the bulk of the fall enrollment, and indicate an over-all decrease of 11,000 students. Esplin on Leave Replacing Wendell L. Esplin as director of the college placement bureau, Dr. William Z. Terry, Annex 1 Room 104, will be in his office to all students seeking positions.This change will not necessitate the refilling of applications by students who have already registered a petition for employment with the department. Mr. Esplin is on a short leave of absence, but will return to Weber in March. Board Eyes Committee To Spur New Drive There Is No Limit Set on Education Surpassing all advance enrollment estimates. Weber college's evening school for winter quarter was m lull swing this week, .Lorenzo Peterson, director has an nounced. Although exact figures were unavailable, Mr. Peterson said thece was no doubt that rolls were long est in history of the program, adding that the number of different courses being offered has also ex ceeded all earlier records. He said there are now 112 courses being offered in vocational and academic fields, emphasis be ing placed on the more academic subjects such as literature, music, art, mathematics, English and many others. New courses that have been added to the program are floriculture, underground water course for farmers and gun repair classes. Most of the trade school courses are full with vacancies existing in general education subjects. Mr. Peterson said that adult education in cultural classes seemed at a minimum, he would like to see more older people take advantage of these courses and not limit their education to vocational interests only. General Education Courses Prove Their Effectiveness Question: What is your opinion of the new General Education Courses? Joan Garrett, student: "I like them, and to prove it I'll continue to fill my four required groups with GE courses." Dr. Young, Life Sciences: "They fill a certain need for general student. I feel that GE courses and conventional courses can and should exist side by side." Teresa Alford, student: If I had known that nine hours would have filled my Life Science requirements I certainly would have continued my GE course in Biology." Dr. Stratford, Social Sciences: It takes time and understanding but most of the GE problems are gradually being understood. Almost a full quarter of electives can be saved through these courses. Though teaching them takes more effort most instructors are enthusiastically in favor of them." Additional Entitlement Information of interest to vet erans who have nearly reached the end of their schooling entitlement has just been received from the Veterans Administration Informa-' tion Service, in Denver. Veterans in colleges and universities under the GI Bill may trade leave time previously taken, for additional educational entitlement. Veterans Administration regulations permit a vet student to finish his term or semester under the GI Bill if his entitlement is exhausted after more than half the term is over. By refunding subsistence for leave paid during the 15 days between enrollment periods, which is granted automatically, the vet may regain them, and if they are sufficient to extend beyondmid-semester, he may thus receive the entire period at government expense. Forms are not available and vets desiring additional information should write to the V. A. Regional Office. t ODDortunitv to fieht for the new Weber college will be yours, just as soon as spring weather permits work on the new stadium for which we already have most of the funds. The first blow will be struck by the advanced diesel students at Weber who will assist in contouring the stadium site at a saving of nearly $10,000. The engineering for this operation is underway at this time. You Can Help But there are many things which YOU can do. There are forms to be made and cement to be poured, as well as landscaping to be done, and much of this is not skilled labor, but the. sort of thing that takes only willingness to do. Such activity however takes supervision and coordination so that your efforts and the contractors' time will not be wasted. Chairman Appointed After presenting these ideas to the Board of Control last Monday, Chas. E. Pomeroy was appointed by the board to select a student-faculty committee with the assistance of Dr. Dixon and Student body President Don Soleberg for the purpose of creating active campus interest in the stadium project and establishing a working plan. Weber students and faculty will have a heritage in the new Weber college stadium. Utah sta(e building board releases $50,000 allotment from state building fund for new Weber stadium construction. Further details of stadium story on page four. Much has been said and many things attempted concerning the new Weber campus. This week another plan of attack was conceived and presented to the Board of Control with the approval of Weber's fighting President, Dr. H. A. Dixon. For many years it has been the custom of students all over the entire U. S. to donate their efforts, towards building and presenting to their schools, many things from trophy cases to the big W on the hill. Students Build During the past few years several universities have been completely built with donated student time and work. What sort of effect do you think a similar such cooperative activity on the part of Weber students and faculty would have on the Utah State Legislature? When the Utah State Building Board found the community willing to get half the $100,000 necessary for the new campus site, they immediately provided the other half. Influence If students are as willing to cooperate and work for this thing we want, as our community was when they oversubscribed the $50,-000 which was our share in the campus site, it would have a tremendous influence on our legislators.With volunteer student aid many dollars can be saved for additional facilities and what is more important, every student will have lived a lesson in democracy and cooperation.

|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.|
