There are no qualifications necessary for being tutored. Students who desire free tutor, ing can also apply, and the department have also been contact, ed to recommend students who "I have been real pleased," said Bob Barclay, ASWSC ex. ecutive vice president," with the success of the game train. This has been the most sue-cessful game train we have ever had. Two years ago six cars were only partly filled. But this year, we have nine cars, with some students standing. "23 cars make up the train, and in order to accomodate the rest of the students, another engine would have to have been added in Whichita, and that would make it necessary to sell to 1100 students and Idaho State sent only 390 tickets." Commenting about the senate request for more funds for a concert, Bob explained, "In past years, there has been a revolv. retary and so were not included in the primary voting.

The concerts last year lost so much it dissolved the revol-ving fund. They wanted the First Edition, but not enough tickets were sold. They were able how. ever, to make up the loss from the Fine Arts series. During the year the series gave the im. pression they would be respon-sible for the concert. Some, how, no appropriation was made." "When we started to plan for a concert, no money was avail, able. It was just a misunder. standing of all parties. Instead of trying to put on a concert with no money, we asked the Senate for $1500. It was just overlooked during regular hearings. The money," added Bob, "is only used when students don't come out." "If students would come out, we could have a concert a quar. ter," he said; Another problem Barclay listed is "which group to bring." "With the money we have to work with we can only buy groups the students don't want, he said. "If we decide to really raise the roof and get a group for $6000, what happens if the students don't come?" Winter and spring of next year will be no problem, according to the executive vicepresident. "There will be appropriations already, and if the students on the fine arts committee are active, they can reserve the funds." "My duties are mainly public relations," continued Bob. He is also co-chairman of the com-1 munity service bureau, fine arts series, member of ,the union building policy board, awards and honors, and publications board. "And if I have any more responsibilities, I'm not doing them!" said Bob.

|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.|
