w The coming school year at Weber College will be a milestone in its history. It will be a marked period for progress, it will also be a marked period for the number of problems confronting a single administration in the history of the school.

Just what departments will move is not yet definite, she said, since some will be needed for the summer school, which will be held on the lower campus. As to how the department will move, is the responsibility of its own through employment of trucks and students. A not yet available schedule will govern the movement of each department.

|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.|
