Tucker, planning director of the commission, told students of aspects of planning and of problems in relation to improved living conditions and social development.Directing the group was Walter C. Neville, head of the sociology department.Other trips planned by the group during the spring quarter will be highlighted by a junket to the State Training School at American Fork, the State prison atPoint-of-the-Mountain an dthe State Mental Hospital at Provo, all on April 28.

(Members of Sigma and Signpost being ctrirters, not students). At any rate, as the gal chosen chould be the best the school has to offer, feeling was high that everyone on the campus should have a say so in her selection.Once, during the wild melee that ensued upon the hallowed grounds of Weber the last four days, I was chairman of the forthcoming shindig. (No doubt because of my uncanny eye for a neatly turned ankle). But recent developments have left things in an uproar and actual arrangements for the queen's final selection are still tentative. However, we do know the queen will be crowned at Sigma's annual dance this quarter. To become a candidate for royal honors, it is probable that a petition must be presented to the contest committeemen and have a minimum of 25 signatures thereon.

|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.|
