Mot Mi of AW Since July, 1968 he has of-ficiated as dean of the School of Business and Public Admin, istration at Boise State College, where he directed the transi-tion from junior college status to a four. year program in accounting, business education, marketing, economics, publicad-ministration and related academic functions. Earlier, he had served as an instructor to the professor of marketing and as chairman of the Division of business and economics while Boise was a jun-ior college. President Miller said he consi. dered this to be an advantageous background for Dr. Rose since Weber State has gone through a similar experience in expanding from a two.y ear college to a degree granting insti. tution. A graduate of Colorado State College, at Greeley, Rose earned a master's degree in business education at that institution before taking his Ph. D. in bus. iness education with a minor in marketing at University of Iowa in 1963. Active in Boise community and buisness affairs, Dr. Rose had served as president of the I-daho Business Education Assn. was president of Delta Phi Ep. silon and Phi Delta Kappa ed. ucational societies, and vice president of the Men's Associ. ation of First Methodist Church, among others. His selection for the Weber State post from among more than 20 applicants was recommended by a WSC faculty screen, ing committee that included faculty from all departments of Business. Planning and good weather fi. nally coincided Friday when about fifty students planted Su. mac roots on the hillside. 'W'. Seven hundred seventy, five roots, "We counted them," said ASWSC President, PaulNeu. enschwander, were planted to replace the faded 'WS The students, mostly Frater. nity and Sorority, tramped all over the mountain Friday mor. ning to collect the roots, then in the afternoon scraped shallow holes and planted them. The out-line of the W' was outlined se-veral days earlier by the ASM, the American Society of Manufacturers, a campus engineer, ing club. The project was instigated and prodded by Dr. O. Whitney Young of the Zoology department." "It has taken 19 years of hard work," he said. The idea originally was put forth in a magazine article writ, ten by Dr. Young, but little was done. This year, however, when time came for the annual white, wash of the 'WS' the student, body officers decided to investigate Dr. Young's suggestion. The Sumac will take several years to grow, according to Dr. Young, and will be visible in the Summer by its green leaves and in the Fall by its red leaves. The committee was headed by Norm Frost and Mike Eldredge, under the supervision of Dr. Young. Idle o cor or 0 bus hut make it to Seattle Want to attend the Far West Regionals in Seattle, Washing-ton? But you can't flip up $30 for bus fare. Right? Then drive yourself! "It would cost between $11 to $12 per person I for gasoline expenses if six people teamed up in one car," says Rich Murray, one of the trip's organizers. Food, accommodations, and game tickets would be tacked on top of gasoline money. Assuming we win on March 7, buses will leave WSC at 8 p.m. on March 11, and arrive in Seattle at 4 p.m. on March 12. Round trip bus fare will cost $30. Food, game tickets, and accommodations will be separate. The buses will leave Seattle after the game on March 14 at 12 p.m., and arrive in Ogden between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Sunday night, March 15. Further information on tickets will be released after March 7. Logistics program to be launched The Utah State Board of Higher Education has authorized the de-velopment of a logistic program at Weber State. The program will begin in April with 180 students partici. pating. The program's formal title is "Management Logistics" It is the result of many months of work initiated by a Hill Air Force Base request in December of 1968. Physical facilities for the pro-gram include classrooms at Hill -as well as campus conveniences. Faculty will include college teachers as well as retired Air Force personnel. "This is one of the most significant developments on the Weber campus," says Academ-ic Vice President Helmut Hof-man. The necessary funds will come from federal government and student sources. Over 2,500 Hill personnel are interested in the program according to a poll conducted here. The program will also include regular college students. The curriculum will be ini-tially directed towards a Certificate of Completion. It will be progressively expanded to the Bachelor Degree level. The study patterns for the new program will uniquely in-, volve more independent work than is usually the case in other disciplines. Self-study, sem. inars, and examinations will characterize this new approach to learning. Beside classroom work, in - service experience will help the trainees. The new program wil be available to both day and night students. They will work in the following fields; logis-tics management, data automation, distribution logistics, quality assurance, pro-curement, and production management.Dix Cloward, former member of the Economics faculty, is the program director. He pres. ently serves as Assistant Dean of Continuing Education. Mr. Clo. ward has worked tirelessly on the new program. He studied at the Air Force Logistics School at Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio and at the Uni. versity of Oklahoma to acquire the needed background to fund and direct the" Weber program.

|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.|
