Summer School Plans Broad Curricula The Weber College Summer School schedule will include more than 200 different class offerings, according to an announcement made today by Dr. Robert A. Clarke, Dean of the summer session. Will Open June 11 Last summer more than 1800 students attended the wide range of campus classes which ranged in times from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. Dr. Clarke anticipates another record enrollment for the quarter which will commence June 11. Appointments for summer registration will be issued June 4 and 5. Registra tion will get underway on June 7th and instruction commences June 11th. Important to Veterans The summer school this year is of special importance to several groups, according to Dean Clarke. Veterans who have not used their G.I. entitlement must be registered for work in college this summer or lose their G.I. educational benefits.

By so doing, a student can accelerate his college graduation by several quar ters. Chance for Part-Time Work Dr. Clarke pointed out that many students have indicated that they plan to work part-time and attend college during the summer months. The increased labor market in the Ogden area is making it easier for ambitious students to find part-time work to assist them through their college years.

|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.|
