SIGNPOST WEBER COLLEGE Vol. XIX No. 8 id Mill' The "Nightmare," Sigma Delta Pi's unique annual pajama dance, will be held tonight at the Old Mill, beginning at 9 p. m. Music will be furnished by the popular rhythmaires, one of the leading combos of the state. Jim Wold, chairman of the "Nightmare" committee reports ticket sales are brisk. "Students seem to realize this is the one dance where it's hard not to have fun. The change in pace from the usual formal affair acts as a real tonic," he added. Though nightshirts or pajamas are not compulsory for those who attend, they are recommended. Tickets are $1.50 per couple. They may be obtained from any Sigma club member or at the door. Partial Result Toward US Fund The Phoenix club contributed $51.50 to the fund for a new student union building recently, according to President William P. Miller. In a letter of transmittal to Miller, the Phoenix members stated that they were donating 50 of the net profit realized from their "Snowball Dance" held during the holiday season to the building fund, "realizing the amoust falls a little short of the funds necessary for the completing of the building, but we hope it is accepted in the spirit it is given." President Miller said that other social clubs in previous years have made voluntary contributions to the fund and that these amounts, together with a building fee paid by each student at registration time will total approximately 35,000 which has been raised in recent years for the contemplated structure. Appreciation was expressed by President Miller to the Phoenix group for the contribution. Fhoenix Club president is Kent Garner and Dr. Jennings G. Olson is faculty sponsor.

|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.|
