President Miller spearheaded the meeting with the resolution that the meeting was held to help repair the damage and pre. vent such action in the future and to find out exactly what had happened, before any official action took place.

As president, I would promote the freshman as an individual," state Rod Felt, presidential candidate -for the Freshman class. "There seems to exist a feeling of "melting into the masses." We freshman arc people with many ideas. I hope to be farsighted, and open minded enough to employ the individual feeling and ideas of my fellow freshmen, and in fact all men," Rod concludes. "I want to see every freshmen at Weber State involved in campus activities. I feel student government is a vital part of the college and can serve to develop the full potentials of each student," says Bob Murray pres. idential hopeful. "I want to give the freshmen class and active voice in the Senate, for the fresh, men class is the largest single group on the campus.

Fran Wickstrom, head of the inter-fraternal council had been thinking about writing to the national office and seeing if some action couln't be taken against the fraternity involved. However, there was one objection to this that he raised himself, "The fraternity could lose their char, ter, but they would still be the same group and we would only create more bitterness."

|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.|
