Taylor, vice president of Brig ham Young University, will be the Hello From Library Sta By Frances Carr, Sig I used to be afraid of librarians. They would wag their double chins back and forth and hiss "either be quiet or get out!" I would rather buy a book and study in the silent recesses of my bedroom which was usually saturated with junk and generally afforded none of the typical study necessaries. Then one day I ran out of money. In desperation I appealed to the college placement bureau. "We only have one opening," said the girl. "Take this to Miss Grose as soon as possible." I was horrified. Reluctantly I climbed the thousands of stairs between building one and the library. Words Came Out Saddling up to the reference desk I choked out the words "Are you Miss Grose?" and dropped my application on her papers. Ramona Madson smiled her happy smile . . . the one where all of her teeth show. "Just a moment," she said and smoothed out the wrinkles of one of her nice skirts. I followed her in past the circulation desk. "Is Miss Grose busy Sally?" I heard her whisper to another lady who was waist deep in funny little white cards. Sally Johnston marked a black check " on one of the cards and looked up. "How are you?" she asked and smiled at me. ' "Uh, . . . fine." "Miss Grose is in her office," there." She she said to Ramona. "Just go right in Mr. Bramble r v Miss Hodges COLLEGE UTAH April 8, 1960 principal speaker, and delegates will be officially welcomed to the meet by Dr. William P. Miller, college president. This is the fifth time since Weber joined the society in 1934 that it will act as host school, said Dr. Leland H. Monson, chairman of Weber's division of humanities and Weber's coordinator for the event. At least six states including, Utah, Washington, California, Kansas, Colorado and Arizona are represented.Bill Brooks, Garden City, Kansas, National Phi Rho Pi, president and Mrs. Sylvia D. Mariner, Lubbock, Texas, national secretary, arrived last Wednesday for the debate. npost Society Editor pointed to an open door and turned to talk to Sally. Cautiously I peered in the door. "Come right in," said a jolly voice from inside. "Oh, you're applying for the open position, just sit right down," she said without glaring holes through me. Maybe this won't be so bad I thought. These ladies are just like other people. Later she introduced me to the I other members of the staff. "Clair takes care of all the reserve material," Miss Grose explained. "You stay with her for a little while and she'll show you around. Clair showed me around all right. I was still so stunned that I didn't really learn too much. It's sure a good thing they picked the most patient librarian to work in reserve, I thought. Most of the students don't know what the teachers want and she has a lot of difficulty in giving them what they really want instead of what they think they want. Students and librarians should get together more often. Then I saw Janet and Barbara and wondered what they were doing here. When I asked "You mean they work in here?" I wasn't being rude. I was displaying more of my ignorance about the facilities of the school library. Lea was the last adult librarian I met. She was quietly sitting at her typewriter minding her own business. So that was my first real trip Miss BaU'man V K. Mr. Palmer Alter Plans Bids for the new Weber College Student Union Building, the lowest of which exceeded the available funds by some ?40,mx., have made it necessary to alter plans for the financing of the building. President Miller and Treasurer Foulger flew to the coast last weekend to make arrangements for an additional ?'.M),()00 loan. Dr. Foulger reported that the chances of the loan being approved are very good. He also reported that if the loan is passed, much red tape will have to be eliminated so the contract can be let within the allotted period of thirty days from March 30. The low bid was submitted by M. Morris and Son, an Ogden contractor.The new arrangement for financing the Union will make it possible to have some facilities which could not be finished under the former plan. These include table tennis, and small games areas, a bookstore, and restrooms.

|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.|
