Miller WMjmwlcuQ B$U week's events President William P. Miller extended warm congratulations to the Black Student Union and the Activities Board for the success of Black Emphasis week. "The students need to be congratulated," he said, " I think it was very positive." "We need more of this," he said, "We need to be together." A spokesman for the Black Student Union said, "I think the week was great. It would have been better if we could have brought in the people we wanted to." "I was impressed by the reception generally, but I was terribly dissapointed about the attendance at the Bill Russell talk. It was a financial loss. Those who attended really responded," he said. Judy Wilmore, activities coorinator, felt the week was a "success." "We started the last of November working on this. As for as I know, this is the first time a program of this type has been done anywhere in this area." "It provided an opportunity for the blacks and whites to work together on a program. It was hard work for everyone involved, but those who were involved were pleased with the results." J wish to compliment all who were responsible for the planning and the management of the "Mood Ebony" activities last week-One of the greatest problems that we face in our society is that of understanding each other and being willing to live and work together for the common good of all. All of us have come from different backgrounds with all of the differences that accompany these different backgrounds. One of the major purposes of a college experience is to become aware of these differences, to recognize and respect the values of each individual, and to be willing to cooperate in the solutions to the problems that exist in our society. "Mood Ebony" activities brought to the college community a valuable message that I hope has improiid the understandings of all of us. I am sorry that the activities were not attended by more members of the student body and the faculty. Again, congratulations to all who were responsible for these activities and congratulations to the Signpost staff for the fine coverage of these events. William P. Miller President A GROOVY GROUP is about to caress your earbones this very evening.

Officials find no evidence against administrators Utah officials have not con-eluded the investigation into the James Robinson incident, but they have "failed to find any evidence against administrative officials, but legislation requiring "due process and legal ex. tradition" may be introduced to the next legislature.

|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.|
