WEBER COLLEGE SIGNPOST VOL. 2 NO. 16 MARCH 3, 1961 OGDEN, UTAH South Pacific singers and dancers are ready for production next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Ogden High School Auditorium. LADY IN THE TUB By Looking For Best Points By Mary Ellen Ryan Signpost Staff Writer What can we do as individuals to promote integregation of all races ? Don Paul Respect everyone as equals and respect this situation as a vo:.-i situatior. Dennis Peterson We can promote the ideals of humanitarian-ism through humane .actions, cast off the grid which binds the narrow mind and lend ourselves to objectivity, and not jump up and down and shout for immediate reform until all of us realize the problem of intergation in all its facets. Look for Good Toints ' "The only way we can have an integrated system of living is for different races to look for the godd points in other races rather than just the bad." said Marion Mcintosh. When we have an understanding of the different cultures and religions we may be able to have a complete, happy and satisfactory integration, according to Dan Fisher. Terry Loder Acknowledge or understanding of the different races or countries and their customs would promote integration. Starting in our homes and teaching our children to associate with people of another race instead of discriminating against them is Jim Sass' answer. Promote Friendship Sharon Watkins and Penny Dawson Friendships can be promoted individually ,and the doctrine of the supremacy of any one race can be dissolved with a constant efford towards brotherhood by all. Parker Jenkins I think it's just an understanding of each other and their ways of doing things ,and by understanding this: that people are people and the color of their skin or the way that they talk has nothing to do with it. Not For Us To Say Ellwood Curtis I think that we don't really have the problem of segregation that the different parts of the nation have, there fore it is not for us to say what to do or what not to dounless we fully understand the pnoblems. The cooperation of all races would help immensely.

|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.|
