WSC Makes Headlines Has Weber State really grown up? Area we really big leaguers? The following article appeared in the Morning Advocate, Baton Rouge, La. :-C MORNING ADVOCATE, Baton Rouge. Wed.. Nov. IT. 1965 1 B Manaoffl frem Bud Montef Hottest Thing On The Gridiron Ever hear of Weber State? Well, bow long have you been following sports? This summer in typing out the nation's collegiate big-wigs' schedules for a schedule page run each year m the Advocate we ran across Weber State. On checking we fotmd they were a member of the Big Sky Athletic Conference and last year woo none and lost tkree. The school is located at Ogden, Utah and Its head coach is a fellow wtth a simple name, Sarkis Arslaniaa. Their nickname is the Wildcats and their cotore art Purple and White. Even the AP didn't know about the school at the start of the season it seemed impossible to get the scores of the Weber State Wildcats. Why are they the hottest thing on the gridiron? They could beat Notre Dame and friend Jim Wlnfro has compiled the scores' to prove It. Why, oh why hasnt one of the bowls, picked up Weber State instead of those elevens with two or thre Jtaajwa. Any team that can beat Notre Dame certainly daqorvM recognition. Weber State has won eight games and lost one, that a IS- loss to Montana State. Pretty nifty record? We think the bowl people must have been hiding tbr beads In a bushel basket. The greatest eleven in the land and uninvited to a bowl. Sort of pitiful isnt it? Just think what the bowl would have going for It. A team no one knows about, even the wire services. None have scouted them outside their own league so their attack would be a complete secret. Then think of the cowboys from Montana descending upon New Orleans, Miami or Dallas. And everyone knows cowboys spend a lot of money when they hit a. big city. At least everyone ought to know If they've got a TV nt in their home and who hasn't! Then the school is at the site where the golden spike was driven to connect the first trans-continental railroad. Why they could dig up that spike and bring It wfcir them. You got to admit these bowl people just aren't thinking. Of course we know why Weber State is not recognised by the bowls. These people schedule their visits to the games during the season and who would want to offer to go to Ogden, Utah to scout Weber State. Possibly grandma, but not the average bowl selection aaember. He kind of leans toward Miami, New Orleans, Houston, Atlanta and the bright lights. Why.ftey tell us except for Saturday they tarn the lights off at 7 p.m. in Ogden. You'll never find a respectable bowl selection member In a city like that. So It appears that the flower of America's gridiron will wilter unseen this year. But then a rose smells or something like that Here's the way5' "Conch" Wtnfree his figured out the bowlers have bowled into the putter.

Browning Contributes Stock Addition of the new numerical - control machine has enlightened the technology department and put it into the automation age. Weber State College Manufacturing Engineers' Club Seminar held last Friday featured the machine as an important aspect to the industrial age and will provide practical experience for manufacturing majors. The modern tape command gsMSHtem,u l . I '. . mm pun mi. mm iihhiuiiiiiiibwiii wwM.mwMmu?mwwmwmm'&$ ' " M-' : ? - ) machine was partly acquired through the generous donation of Val A. Browning of BrowningArms Co., and this is the second contribution to the college inthetech- . nology department. In 1963, he contributed $5,000 worth of stock ' which the school used to purchase : a surface grinder. Stock valued at $7,200 donated by Mr. Browning has enabled WSC to buy a modern tape command machine for use in the Technical Education Division. The new tape machine will be used in the winter quarter for a new series of classes in numer- : ical ' control. Dr. Wendell L. Esplin, director of the technical education division reported, "use of this machine will enable us to expand both the machine shop program and the manufacturing engineering technology program and can be used for two year and four year students." He added Weber's technical education program is being recognized by many industries, who send their representatives here throughout the year to offer high paying jobs to the students. One of the latest offers was from General Electric Co., which sent its manufacturing recruiter, John E, Jones, from its New York offices. Mr. Jones hired Lowell Larsen, who will complete a bachelor degree course at the close of this quarter in Manufacturing Engineering Technology, and will begin work in the near future at $7,800 a year.

|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.|
