1 Hfttt pmr VOL. 25, NO. 28 OGDEN, UTAH May 6, 1966 Editorial tPJeber State FvQust The Signpost, on this election day, feels some questions should be asked concerning the itemizing and accounting of the budget. Today's winners in the Senate race will have a voice in the final approval of this budget There is considerable shouting about communication on this'campus; -butjvhyTJs -it that the.Signrjost appropriation was cut in haiLso-thafjiow more-tharr 60 percent of the Signpost has to be -advertising, because we eah't afford the space for copy? Why is it that the Scribulus, the school literary magazine, was cut out completely because it didn't have enough student appeal or importance and wasn't making enoyliiru2ney while at the same time the chejrJeaieTjielMroTthe classes, and the senate were appropriated $7, 766, including $4,000 in awards. Out of this money our student funds buy letter jackets and sweaters for the lettermen. Which is more important to an institution of higher learning sweaters for the lettermen or a literary magazine? We think the latter. Did you know that your student funds are used for sweaters for all of the student officers and for the Senate to have an annual Spring banquet? Well, they are. Again we ask which is more important a spring banquet for the Senate or a school literary magazine? It is inconceivable to us that Weber State could even consider dropping Scribulus. How can we claim to be a quality college without a literary outlet for the creative needs of our students? The quality of the magazine is irrelevant to this issue, just as the quality of the basketball or football team would be. Consider for one moment what you would say if you were asked by a student from another college if he could see your school magazine. "You don't have one?' After he laughed for an hour he'd probably say, "What kind of school is Weber State anyway? Even my high school had a literary magazine." Mrs. L. B. Carroll, Assistant Professor of English, summed up the significance of the controversy over budget appropria tions: "I hear much derisive talk High." Abolishing such activities popular activities, for instance, growth will be in the direction high school." The Signpost agrees. The Scribulus, some way, must be restored.

Senate Ends Scrib Talk Scribulus, the Weber State literary magazine, was dealt a severe blow in its struggle for survival last week by the student Senate. In their weekly meeting on Thursday, the senators decided no further action should be taken on their previous decision to scuttle the magazine. No vote was taken on the matter, but the decision was reached by "general consensus." This means that the Senate, in essence, has "washed its hands" of the whole affair. However, the newly-elected Senate may restore funds for the magazine if they so decide. The senators elected today, though, cannot take office until next year. Therefore, current members of the Senate have turned the controversial issue of the (Continued on Page 3) This step will not only give added stature to WSC as a four-year institution, but will help to emphasize the role and importance of scholastic endeavor.

|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.|
