Weber State College, Ogden, Utah I I i roec By Byron Warfield-Graham The advent of a new school year has brought to Weber State new responsibilities and a closer link to the problems within the community surrounding it.

Project RESPECT has an en. rollment of between 40 and 50 young people from the Ogden and Salt Lake City areas.

Dave Evans, chairman of the investigations committee, mentioned that while it seemed to give too much power to the financial vice president, the presence of the vice presi-dent was not required for the committee to meet. "This could lead to an awkward situation, said Keith Orton, senator at large. The motion was passed un-animously, and the chair, Bill Washburn, suggested that if desired, an amendment bewritten.

|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.|
