tAln Vol, No. 9 OGDEN, UTAH August 18, 1967 Record Enrollment Expected Autumn Enrollment Scheduled An estimated 9,100 day, evening and special students are expected to register Sept. 20 and 21 for fall quarter classwork at Weber State College. Milton C. Mecham, dean of registration and admissions, said day school projections by college officials indicated some 6,700 students will be registered. This would represent an increase of 7 per cent over the 1966 fall quarter enrollment, he said. Evening school enrollment may reach some 2,000 students, Mecham said, some 200 more than attended classes during the 1966 first quarter enrollment. Other special students will include off-campus study programs at Hill Air Force Base, Internal Revenue Service Center, Defense Depot, Ogden, Brigham City and Bountiful. Additional Students This section of evening school enrollment should include an additional 500 students, he said. Registration for all returning day students will be held Sept. 20 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Freshmen will register the following day during the same time period.Late registrants may enroll on September 22, Mecham said. Evening school registration will be held September 19 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Technical Education Building. Some 20 new faculty members will be joining the Weber State faculty this year. New programs in the evening school will include those in police science and community development, Mecham said. Registration Increases Increases in faculty and regis- tration, together with a shortage of classroom space brought about by delays in construction of new academic buildings, will result in longer days for both students and faculty. Many classes will begin at 7 a.m. and others are scheduled as late as 4 p.m., Mecham said. Three Projects Three major construction projects are under construction on campus including a $2.4 million high rise dormitory, a $4 million science building and a $2.2 million extension to the Union Building. The lecture building, an oval-shaped extension of the science building, is scheduled for completion in time for fall quarter of 1968. Laboratory wing of the building will be completed in 1969 if construction is completed on schedule. Both the dormitory and the Union Building addition will be completed in the fall of 1968. Weber State College recently switched to organization along the lines of a senior institution. Six new deans were named and three ' vice presidents were appointed to serve on the administration. Included in the new list of vice presidents is Helmut P. Hoffman, on a leave of absence from Utah State University where he is head of the psychology department. f . ' ... . ..

Visiting Boy Scouts Stage Fun, Miniature Jamboree The first two groups of some 698 foreign boy scouts arrived Sunday enroute to their homelands following a nine -day encampment at Farragut State Park, Idaho. Some 300 Belgian Scouts assembled their gear on the athletic field of Ogden High School while at Mt. Ogden Park, 10 blocks away, German Boy Scouts were being greeted by the Ogden Kiwanis Club. A third group of scouts, some 320 from Japan, arrived Monday for a brief stopover before traveling to Salt Lake City. Lamar Buckner, Ogden Kiwanis Club, said about 80 of the Japanese scouts returned from a two day stay in Ogden that evening, with the other scouts remaining in Salt Lake City. They joined the German Boy Scouts Tuesday, he said, for a tour of the city's Municipal Gardens and a possible "Miniature" Jamboree with scouts from local Trooo 232.

' Wolthius, Ogden Mayor; Raymond Ride, president of the Lake Bonneville Boy Scouts Council; Lu Auston, Scout Executive for the Bonneville Council and Bruce Browning of the Browning Arms Company. Browning addressed the scouts in French and then treated the boys to ice cream and cake. Most of the scouts were dressed in grey and green uniforms with blue kerchieves or light brown shirts and shorts with green knee socks. . Their uniforms were in contrast with the dark brown shorts, light brown shirts, grey knee socks and red kerchieves worn by the German scouts. Buckner welcomed the group, who will stay with local Kiwanis Club members during their visit. Members of the Japanese Boy Scouts stayed with members of the Buddhist church which has planned a special dinner for them on Monday, Buckner said.

|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.|
