The amendment reads: Be it enacted by the Student Senate of Weber State College that a policy and procedure for calling a constitutional convention be established:Section 3. (a) A constitutional convention may be called by any one of the following: 1. The studentbody president may call a constitutional convention within fourteen days (14 days) after receiving an approved recommendation from the ASWSC student Senate. 2. The ASWSC student Senate may call a constitutional convention within fourteen days (14 days) after "receiving an approved recommendation of the ASWSC studentbody president. 3. By petition of 10 per cent of the ASWSC studentbody at large. (b) Organization and duties of the constitutional conventioncommittee: . j The constitutional convention will be organized and its work completed in a manner to be agreed upon by the Senate and the Executive Council. (c) The new constitution shall be made available to the ASWSC studentbody at least seven days prior to the studentbody referendum. The constitution shall become officially adopted by the procedure outlined in section 1 of the amendments. If this amendment is passed by a majority of the studentbody voting, a constitutional convention will be called during the Christmas holidays. According to Senate President Jerry Nebeker, the procedures have been a little rushed to accomodate all necessary requirements before the end of autumn quarter. He said that although more time could have been taken , the amendment was vital enough to warrant rush procedures. The first reading of the proposed amendment was unanimously passed by the Se.iate.

|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.|
