Dorms Pushed Up On Building Slate "Plans for the Fine Arts Building and dormitories are coming along very well," President Miller said recently. Due to the states fiscal condition, the $1.8 million for the auditorium will not be appropriated until next spring. This delay in the construction start means that the auditorium will not be ready for use until 1965. The Fine Arts center will be built southeast of the U.B. In addition to the auditorium, the center will include a theater unit, complete music department, classrooms, speech offices, and public spaces. Seat Capacity The auditorium will have an 1,800 seat capacity, and the theater will seat about 300. Keith W. Wilcox is the architect. A detailed application for the location and operating facilities for the dormitories will be submitted for approval. Upon the approval oi the board, the architect, Sterling R. Lyons will start drawing the plans. By January the administration hopes the plans will be ready for bids. The dorm are expected to be ready in 1964, and there will be facilities for approximately 100 men and 100 women in board and room dorms and 72 men and 72 women in housekeeping units.

|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.|
