The week was originally designed to unite all students in a common effort to promote the spirit of Weber State College, according to last year's chairman, Kenny Knight.

Yearbook editor defends Acorn Linda Sandlund, hard-working editor of the college yearbook, Acorn, was firmly opposed to the recommendation of the executive cabinet to allot no funds for the book next year. The executive cabinet, consisting of the studentbody president and vice presidents, .rejected the budget of the Acorn on the grounds that too few students were benefiting for the cost. "They talked to a lady a while back and her brother worked on the yearbook in 1901. If you want a fine tradition, how much farther back can you go?" This school is growing fast, so fast they need a pictorial record. That's what a yearbook is for. They can change it if they want, we were going to try to increase the base next year, have more pages," she said. "I thought I had solved the problem, but evidently I hadn't. One college in Texas had 80 percent of the studentbody, 8,000 students, buy a book." "It is not all over. Yearbooks have limitless possbilities. When photography takes a new step, so does printing, and the yearbook is right on top of it." The recommendation of the executive cabinet now goes to the student senate and, according to one member of the executive cabinet, they probably will not do away with the book. Mike Joseph, unopposed, received 109 votes to continue as education senator. He was appointed to complete Dale Thompson's term after Thompson was disqualified because of excessive absence.

|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.|
