Due to an alleged cutback of funds by ths state, the department's promised funds were not available. Needing a total of $29,000, Dr. Rowley said he had obtained all but $5300, and if the students funded $2000, other money could be gathered elsewhere. Jerry Allen, AMS president, recommended to the Senate the request be given $500, and the additional amount of $1500 be given with any money left in the budget at the end of the year. rejecting alternate proposals which would have used the instructors to deliver and collect the cards, or just to deliver. Michael Richards, evaluation committee member, suggested that letting students return the cards on their own responsibility would indicate the interest of the students. Dr. Richard O. Ulibarri, faculty representative on the Senate said, "We want to see if the studenhs are interested." Dean of students Alan Dayley complimented Richards on his performance. "We appreciate the committee's effort." "I don't know what we will do next year," he added. The IBM cards have five listed criteria. Presentation of material, Structure (relevancy, clarity), Relationship with students, Personal characteristics, Knowledge of subject matter and professional skills. These items are rated by a one to five scale, (poor to excellent). Scanty room at the bottom is left for comments, but, according to Richards, the back of the card may also be used. According to Dean Dayley and Dr. Ulibarri, the Academic Council, which is the official governing body of the faculty, has given full backing to the project.

|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.|
