Volunteers Help Build Stadium "The Lord helps those xcho help themselves." Last Friday saw the first group of student volunteers at work on the new campus. To help themselves, to break the ice for all W.C. students, and to show the people of Utah that they're willing to work for what they want, this group consisting of male members of the Board of Control, and the men finalists in the recent student body elections helped install the sprinkling system in a portion of the new Weber campus. Appointed by the Board of Control, a committee consisting of Robert Vowels, Arden Combs, and Larry Williamson, to coordinate student volunteer effort, has appealed to all students to assist in the project by donating two days work each. Completing the installation of sprinkling and drainage systems, leveling and raking, planting grass, and landscaping are some of the jobs still to be done. Students desiring to assist may obtain information from Wendell Esplin in the Vocational Building, or sign up in the Cashiers office. Busses to the stadium site depart each week day at 1 p.m. from behind the Vocational Building. Contracted and being installed at the present time is a curb and gutter project, and bids are being accepted for excavation of approximately 100,000 yards of earth for the stadium, according to W.C. President H. A. Dixon, who also stated that the plans for the stadium are being drawn up by Arthur Grix, a Weber alumnus. The State Board of Education has approved the application for a field house, and it has been sent to Washington, D. C. for further consideration. Dr. Dixon stressed that this will not be a temporary building; that there is $150,000 available to remodel and improve the building. When asked if the stadium would be ready for the games this fall, Dr. Dixon said that it is "indefinite", but indicated that the student volunteer program, if successful would aid materially in effecting its readiness.

|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.|
