Juniors, seniors and graduate students were permitted to take part in the pre-registration procedures which started Monday. hike proposal Ogden (AP)-- The Weber State College Board of Trustees rejected Tuesday a proposal to raise tuition for the remaining school year despite a lack of some $145,000 in anticipated funds. A recommendation to keep tuition and fees at a cost of $105 per quarter was made by Dr. William P. Miller, WSC President. The Utah coordinating council on higher education will be asked to authorize an advance of $53,000 from the 1968-69 budget year for current operations, he said. "Severe cuts in instructional supplies and equipment must be made and if it were necessary to reduce the budget by an additional $53,000 the operation of the present educational system would be seriously impaired," pres. Miller said. A 4 per cent reduction in state appropriations to Weber State College resulted in a loss of revenue of $145,000 and miscalculation of the uniform school fund by the State Department of public instruction resulted in an additional $40,000 loss of expected funds. The board last month considered raising tuition fees $5 for winter and spring quarters of the 1967 school year when the revenue loss was announced last month by Pres. Miller. "It is the feeling of tue board at this time that it would be easier to work with reductions in appropriations next year than it would be to do it this year," said trustee William G. Fowler. Board chairman Ira A. Huggins said he recognized a danger in classwork will end today for all sophomore, junior and senior students. 3-4 in the Technical Bldg. for freshmen and late registering students. registration ends today Sophomores began regison Wednesday. classes were reported closed early this week as a record 85 per cent of the upper-classman registered for classes on a "first come, first basis." served juniors and seniors, whohave not registered before today, may still do so, Wiese said.

Registration packets will be presented to the student in the Union, after complet "Borrowing on an uncertain future" as state legislatures of the future "may not see fit to restore the amount borrowed." The college would actually be borrowing from already appropriated funds since the $53,000 would come from the second half of the biennial period of state appropriations, said Dr. James R. Foulger, WSC business vice president.Trustees also approved preliminary plans for a redesigned $1,155,000 administration building which were presented by trustee Fowler, chairman of the buildings and grounds committee. Construction projects totaling $8.8 million were reported to trustees as "practically on schedule," by campus officials. Unseas-onal warm weather had helped crews overcome delays caused by wet spring weather, said Fred Johnson, WSC director of campus planning. Current construction projects include: two new parking lots, $4.2 million science building, $2.2 million addition to Student Union, and a 12-story men's residence hall. "The parking lots will be ready for use in several days, and the building projects are about 40 complete, he said. Some 3400 parking spaces will be available for the college's 9,000 day and evening students when both lots are opened, with several small lots planned by officials.

|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.|
