The world of his invariably bears a surprising resemblance to the street where you live." Many Positions Before settling down to a ser-iov.s job of writing light verse, Mr. Nash was a teacher, a bond salesman, la writer of car card advertisements, an advertising copywriter for several book publishers, and Managing Editor of the NEW YORKER. Mr. Nash has made many appearances on T.V.

Mr. Hansen said that the Choir has been asked to come to Seattle, Washington on Sunday, June 10 bo sing at the Flair. He said that the choir has been organized about 17 years and has about 50 members. The choir is a class sponsored by the evening School. - Amount Needed Mr. Hansen said that about $100 was needed for each member to make the trip. The Choir has financed 80 of the cost itself, but asked the Beard of Control for additional funds. The Board appointed a committee to decide upon ia reasonable amount. In other action the Board urged all students to attend the redrafting of Weber College's new four-year constitution this Saturday at 8:00 a.m. in the Union Building. Word On Smoking In a comment to the Board concerning the Signpost's article on Jan. 19 on smoking in the Union Building, President Miller read a letter pointing out that the Board of Trustees as a group did not express the wish that smoking be lallowed in the Union Building. He pointed out that the Board of Trustees is not a policy making organization for the school but merely serves as an advisory group in such matters. He said that certain members pointed out that the College is not a sectarian institution and therefore an open policy should be maintained. The Board of Turstees took no action on the smoking issue but referred the matter back to the students, Pres. Miller explained. The Ogden City Chamber of Commerce said that if the Union Building were opened to smoking during the summer, conventions and organizations might consider using its facilities, according to a letter from the Chamber to Pres. Miller.

|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.|
