The social . promise for the growth of Weber State College. photo by ew, Morgan E"Jbidl'.Jfcft I x. tf & be part TJSC Weber State college will soon be a pedestrian campus, that's part of the master plan for building up the school. This fall or next spring the state highway department is expected to start work on the section of the periphery road that will connect Ed-valson and. 40th Streets just east of Harrison. Road to Circle to Campus Eventually this road will circle all of the main campus with parking lots just off of it. Cars, other than service vehicles, will not be allowed into the main campus. Students will find it more conveient to park in one spot and walk to all of their classes. There will be two main sidewalks through the campus. The east-west walk will run between the Union Building and the present classroom buildings by the bell-tower (now under construction) and wind up the hill to the science buildings. The main north-south walk will run under the Union Building north past the classroom buildings to the new educational building (also now under construction) and south in front of the Fine Arts Center. All buildings Tied Together Another feature of the master plan is the tying of all buildings together, visually, by using the same outside materials. In addition, all buildings will be connected by utility tunnels. Heating and cooling will be controlled from a central point, a master control panel to be located in the heating plant. A new boiler will be installed this summer as part of this program. Expansions Designed Presently in the design stage, is expansion of the library, additions to the science and technicals buildings, and a new maintenance building. Land is now being acquired for the new special events center to be located south of the campus and east of the dorms. Construction on this center is expected to start in three or four years. More Dorms In the discussion stage, are more dorms, fraternity and sorority houses and married student housing. The master plan itself, is flexible and is changed from time to time as new needs arise and as more funds become available or run out. The plan is not on a strict time schedule. Relocations Scheduled Plans also include those for landscaping, lighting, and the relocation of the Moench statue and the flagpole. The statue and the flagpole will probably be moved to a location between the Administration Building and the new Social Science Building. our error A Signpost error in Tuesday April 27 newspaper, stated "Rob Alley was asked to submit a statement to the Signpost but did not respond."

|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.|
